A lie tore them apart… A truth will bring them back together.

Fifteen years ago Jackson Delaney met Skylar Deveraux. It was love at first sight. He adored her. He trusted her. And she betrayed him. Breaking things off, he left her behind and never expected to see her again.

Heartbroken and angry, Jackson forced himself to move on with his life but not before swearing off committed relationships forever. Love had made a fool of him once, he swore never to let it happen again. After graduating from college he got drafted into the NFL. 

With the help of time Jackson was able to put the past behind him. Now at thirty-six-years-old he believes he’s living his dream. He’s rich, famous and a celebrated NFL quarterback who can have anyone woman he sets his sights on. His life is perfect until the death of his brother and sister-in-law unearths some devastating secrets from the past that forces him to question everything he thought he knew about his life.

All of the people who were supposed to love him are involved in some duplicitous schemes to conceal the truth from him and Skylar is at the center of the biggest scheme of them all. Now he must find Skylar to get the truth from her. 

How will he handling seeing her again after all this time? Will the extreme passion they once shared still burn hot between them? And if so, can he ever forgive her deceptions and be able to reclaim the only woman he has ever loved?

WARNING: This novel is not intended for anyone under the age of eighteen. Contains strong language, explicit sexual content and domestic violence. If any of those are an issue for you this is NOT the book for you.

My thoughts
The first thing I have to say about this book is OMG what an awesome book this is. The book is a real page turner. I had a little bit of problem to get into the story but after a chapter, I was stuck. The books has everything you can wish for, passion, deception, betrayal, romance and suspense. The mix of everything makes this book so good and makes me emotional. I did feel so much when reading the book, I laughed and I cried.

I must say that this book is very well written and when I found out that this is the authors debute novel I was surprised. It shows so much talent and I would guess this is written from some one who has a lot of experience. No matter what the book is so well written and you feel and knows that their so much time and effort put into the book. As a reader you feel it and you feel the art in every word.

I can really recommend this book and I cant wait for more from Samaya Leighton and this series. This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time, specially in this genre. And I read a lot.

Moonbeams of Unintended Consequences - Muffy Wilson (book review)

So the last review of the day (I think). This is also the second review from Muffy Wilson and it is very different from the other one.

SHE, young, educated - a woman of substance - wore a flowing, form-fitted white gown that tumbled in silken folds and revealed her breath in the soft rise of her alabaster breasts. Her eyes reflected an emerald depth as her heartbeat declared the rhythm of her life in her temples. The fragrance of a white gardenia, nestled in the curves of her auburn curls, announced her arrival as she glided elegantly to her aisle and settled, like a dove, into her corner seat.

HE, a towering self-assured giant of a black man, chest broad and arms outstretched in opulent black leather, was majestic. Dark mahogany eyes locked irresistibly onto her and declared his desire. His full baritone filled the opera house with harmony and the musical seduction began.

His hypnotic gaze met her heated blush with hunger.

THAT insatiable night wove them irretrievably together, locked in a magnetic embrace riding moonbeams of passion and ribbons of desire. Would the seeds of love planted that night, a decade earlier, prove strong enough to bear her life and death struggle?

Would the only man she could turn to help, as the secrets of the past reveal her betrayal?

My Thoughts
I really enjoyed reading this book because it is very well written and has a very good storyline. I like the mix of romance and erotica in this book. The language is good and it helps to drive the story and as a reader I appreciate a good language in a book.

The characters in this book is very well written and felt so real and awesome. I could easy connect with the characters in the book on so many levels. I liked the development of the characters in the book, you can see and feel how they grow along with the story and you see them grow.

If you like romance and erotic novels BUT with a great story, then this is a book you would love and should read. The book is really great and it has ended up on my wishlist because I want it as a paperback. This is how good I think the book is.

The Para-Portage of Emily - Muffy Wilson (book review)

so the second book review of today is "The Para-Portage of Emily" by Muffy Wilson. A book I really enjoyed.

Buy Linkes
Buy it as ebook here
Buy it as paperback here

Emily Macque, a young, beautiful junior partner in her father’s law firm, is but a heartbeat away from love or destiny. Duty brings Emily to a frozen Island estate two-hundred and fifty miles north of Chicago. Devotion requires she delve into the property history to settle an estate probate. Death lures her into the arms of the shadows seduction created by the flickering light and dark shadows.

What flames the timeless passions spanning the decades? Love, desire or obsession

Colin Jorgenson, once a Great Lakes mariner, is a strong man haunted by love and loss. How long will he return each night, gripped by desire, hoping to find the woman he has loved for a century?

Beneath the pristine Island beauty, passions hungered, lingered in the ardent darkness. His passions, fueled by decades of loneliness and longing, could no longer be denied. Will they face eternity together or love in secret as dark things are to be loved between the shadows and the soul?

My Thoughts
This book is just brilliant and so damn good. I was hooked in the story within a few pages and I just couldn't stop reading the book. It was impossible to put it down when you have started. The story is very well written and unfolds very nicely for the reader. It drags you in and keeps you spellbound.

their is a nice mix between paranormal, romance and mystery in the book and you can see that Muffy Wilson combinds them very well in this book. I must say that just the way of combinding things into one book is what makes this book so good. It is not pure anything more than pure awesome.

I like how the story is told and how the book is written. The style and tone is very well done and the tone of the language and how the language is used to drag the reader in, is what makes the book so good. Emily is also a very entertaining character that I like a lot and at first I was unsure about her but the more I got to know her the better I liked her. The character development and how they grow and changes in the book is also very nice and very well done. You can see the character changing and growing in the story and how they react to things in the story to a good way.

This is a must to read book because it is very well written with a very good storyline that is easy to follow but still gives you surprises. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this book and I love it so much that I need to get it as a paperback.

Between Good And Evil - R. Michael Phillips (Book review)

So today I have no less than 3 reviews to post but I will try to spread them over the day and we start with this book that has been on my to read list for a while and I finally got to read it.

Buy it as paperback here
Buy it as hardcover here
Buy it as e-book here

Years after the Willis Asylum closed, the secrets of its past lingered in its decaying halls as a reminder to the good people of Auburn Notch—when Evil closes a door, he also opens a window. Sheriff Promise Flynn was new to the town, and she was about to find out some windows should never be opened.

Promise Flynn is an overly impulsive Metro Detective whose disregard for procedure finally resulted in her being shot and left for dead during an investigation. To repair her bruised ego and splintered confidence she abandons the callous dark alleys of Chicago to patrol the quiet, birch-lined streets of Auburn Notch—a favorite vacation spot of her youth. For two years everything was idyllic, until the body of a young girl found in the abandoned asylum outside of town awakens the insecurities she thought her new life would insulate her from.

As the new Sheriff she begins her investigation ignoring the similarities between the young woman’s death and her own case, oblivious to being unexpectedly recognized and penciled in at the top of a clever murderer’s To-Do list. Her internal struggle intensifies when a discredited crime reporter from the past suspiciously arrives in town to resurrect his threadbare reputation, along with an FBI agent chasing down a lead in a cold case. Both men quickly become entangled in Flynn's investigation and her attempts to finally put her past to rest.

Flynn reluctantly accepts the murder of the young girl just might be the work of the two men responsible for her hasty departure from Chicago, but Agent MacGregor insists the evidence points to a man he’s been chasing. As the rising current of her past threatens to pull her under, Flynn finds herself unprepared for option three.

My Thoughts
This book is a very interesting book with so much going on in it. At first I had trouble keeping up but when I finally got into it, I started to enjoy it and I really did like the book.

The writing style is very nice and it drives the story and makes it deep, which is something I really enjoy and liked about this book. I can say it is different from a lot of book in the same genre and that is something I really enjoyed. it wasn't a rerun of a million other books you have read.

The characters in the book is very well developed and fits the story perfectly. Over all the author have done a good job with the story and the characters. This is a very interesting book and I think that it will take me reread of the book for it to come to its right. I don't know why but it feels like the book has so much to give and that I couldn't take it in the first time. This is something that is both good and bad for a book, the good thing is, the reader will come back and the bad thing is that some stop reading it.

This is not the easiest read out their but I really enjoyed it and I will reread it again in the future. It is really good and i really enjoyed reading it. I have ordered this book as a paperback so it shows that I really enjoyed the book.

clarification: HONEST reviews

So reacently people have started wondering about my reviews and Yes I do read a lot and I review what  I have read. All my reviews are HONEST! If I like or love a book I say so, if I dont like it I say so.

Favorite authors
Everyone have favorite authors, and so do I as a reviewer. No it dont mean that I automaticly will give their works 5/5 stars reviews IF they dont deserve it. I have favorite authors that have written some shitty books and I say so and their is authors that I love that are pretty new and I like their works so far and give them good reviews but not all of them is 5 start reviewss.

Buying Reviews
The thing I hear the most is that I get "bought" and I get books and stuff for doing 5 starts reviews and that is NOT true. I will never ever be bought with book/stuff or money for a review. I ONLY do HONEST reviews. If anyone tried to buy me I will thanksfully decline the author and the books. I havent meet an author who have tried to buy me and I think that is very uncommon, its just that people THINK as a reviewer I get free stuff.

Yes there is A LOT of free books out there and I have loads of them but I have as many as i have PAID for. When a book is free its not paying for it. I have been given books as ARC (advanced readers copy) for an HONEST review. And I always give an honest review which a lot of authors semse to like and thank me for.

So that was it. I just wanted to clarify this, it is a shame I have to clarify that I am not bought and will never be bought. I beta read, I do ARCS and I always give my thoughts. I have won books from authors and got swag with it, I get books I have beta read and swags as thanks for the work done. But it is not for 5 star reviews. its for honest reviews, and thoughts.

The reviewing book gives me NO money. I havent earned anything by reviewing more than friends... I spend money to be able to do this I WORK full time to pay bills, books and normal things like any other person. I am also a part time student which cost money. So before you think reviewers get paid or bought for the reviews, think again. this is our hobby and not something we do to earn money.

The Deans List #2: Honor Roll - Kelly Collins (book review)

This is the second part of the “the Deans list” series. I got this as an ARC and I was supposed to update this review yesterday but I wrote 24th in my calender and not 23 Its a day late. I mean, how can i screw a date up like that well, it happenes and here is the review. For the review of the first book, just look under this review ;)

Buy the book as ebook here

When do you become the sum of your parts?

Drop dead gorgeous, kind to a fault, and good in bed, twenty-six-year-old graduate student Luca Gregorio meets all the requirements for The Dean’s List, a university society that offers alumni anything they desire—for a price. Weeks from graduating, Luca loses his most valuable client. Determined to graduate debt free, he needs new patrons to cover his shortfall. His once easy job at Concierge Services becomes complicated once he meets Mim Knight, a woman he can’t ignore.

She was worth more.

Cultured and beautiful, Mim Knight isn’t looking for anything but a quick end to a frustrating workday when Luca Gregorio shows up on the other side of her desk. Despite his too-good-to-be-true looks, he’s different from the trust fund boys she’s used to. He’s fearless, genuine, and sexy as hell.

They say money is the root of all evil, but they’re wrong.

Drowning in lies of omission, Luca knows one misplaced step will lose Mim forever, but like his dream of financial freedom, he can’t let her go. In the world of commodities, everyone has something to sell. What price do you demand for your honor? What price do you put on love?

My Thoughts
So I love this book as much as I love the first one in the series. They are just awesome. We get to know the characters a bit more and if you havent rooted for a character in book number one, you will do it in this one. I like Luca and even more in this book. The character development is just magnificent in this book.

And just like the first book you are a reader get drawn in with the amazing story and writing of this book. It is impossible to put it down when you first starts reading it. I enjoyed the style of writing and how this story is written. I think the writing style suites this book and how the story is written and driven and the characters do so much for the book.

I am so inlove with this book and series and dont know what to say. I dont think I have enough superlatives to use to describe my thoughts and feelings and how awesome it is. Awesome isnt enough. I can see myself going back and read this series over and over again. That is how spellbound I became of the book and how much I love it. This series is just so perfect and both of the books is so well written suites well together. Sometimes it feels like a second book is too much but it is not the case in this book. The second book is needed and very very good. So read it, Read this series. You will NOT regret it.

The Dean's List (The Dean's List #1) - Kelly Collins (book review)

I did read this book a while back and reread it last week because I got an ARC for book two “Honor Roll”... The review of that one will be uploaded later today.

Buy it as ebook here
Buy it as paperback here

Twenty-five-year-old honors student, River Roberts, knew her life had to change. With only forty dollars to her name, she was hungry, tired, and out of options. While seeking advice from her best friend Jade, she found something that could provide all she was looking for. Sexy, witty, charming and motivated, she met the requirements for The Dean’s List, a university society that offered alumni anything they desired. It was the perfect job for her. 

But it came with a cost: secrets and loneliness. 

After the death of his wife, enigmatic Jonathan Ferris lived in a world of acquisition and mergers, a world where he knew financial security, a world filled with desolating loneliness. That was until River Roberts. She was intelligent, beautiful, sensual, and when their lives collided, his world changed. 

But then there was reality: she wasn’t truly his. 

In a world of commodities and trading, River and Jonathan must fight to preserve what their hearts desire. But will that be possible? Will their collision be temporary, or will they overcome the many obstacles in their way? 

This book it is a stand alone contemporary romance story about college romance. Older men and younger women. There are no cliffhangers just hot Alpha male millionaires and an intriguing love story. 
Due to content, this book is intended for 18+ readers.

My Thoughts
I did read this book a while back and reread it last week because I got an ARC for book two “Honor Roll”... The review of that one will be uploaded later today.

I can start with saying that this book is an “OMG I LOVED IT” book. The story is so well written and is easy to follow but it dont make the reader dumb with way to easy language like I can feel some books do. Here you have a great story that flows perfectly and that capture the reader and drags it in to the story and the characters of the book. I love the way how it is written and how the author Kelly Collins uses the language to drive the story and to give the reader the pleasure of the book, the environment and everything in it.

What I like about this book, is how Kelly Collins makes the characters so alive and so real. When I read this book, I am there, feeling, smelling, touching. There is no barrier between me and the characters in this book and I just love it.

One thing I must say about this book is that you havent read it before even if you have read similar books like this before, like I have. this book is different and that is what makes the book so strong. It has the edge and touch and the story to back everything up. Collins work with the story and put romance and sex in it and that is something I really really enjoys. This is a must read book and I can see myself rereading it again and again. This is not the first book I read of Collins, I read the short story “Cole for Christmas” and here are the link to that review. And I then fell in love with how this author is writing and how the story is driven and is the center of attention.

As I said before, in the beginning the review of the second book is on its way. So Stay tuned.

Molly's Misadventures - D.E. Haggerty (book review)

I got this book for an honest review and I had really big hopes for it. It is a romantic comedie and normally they are really good and funny to read.

I’m having the suckiest day ever. First, my father, aka Mr. Grumpy Pants, calls to say his nurse just walked out on him. Likely story. I rush home to pack, only to walk in on my husband getting it on with his younger, skanky secretary. Unfortunately, my quick weekend trip home to fix Dad’s problems turns into a stay of a few weeks. Luckily, I’ve got Danny, the neighbor boy I’ve had a crush on since I was a dorky, braces-wearing, nose-buried-in-a-book teenager, and a brand-spanking new blog to keep my mind off things. Before I know it, I’m writing product reviews of vibrators and getting questioned by a store rent-a-cop at the world’s worst date ever. All while trying to figure out how to take things with Danny to the next level. Not to complicate things or anything, but my boss decides to give me an ultimatum—come back in four weeks or don’t come back at all. How in the world did my life get so complicated?

My Thoughts
Reading romance comedies can be very funny and very relaxing and this book is very entrtaining. It has a good mix between romance and comedy so it dont get to be over the edge or to much like some books can be.

The story is okay, but I dont know, I couldnt really get into the story as I hoped I would. It was a good book and I liked it but I got bored becaue the story itself is not uniqe and it felt like I have read the book before even if I hadent. The book is well written and there is a clear storyline so it is easy to follow. I can see that a lot of people love this book and I can understand it even if it wasnt exactly what I wanted.

I like D.E. Haggertys way of writing and know I will read more from her. If you like romantic comedies and want a quick read, this is a book for you. I liked it but didnt love it but it is still readable and it did entertain me but not as much as I wanted or liked too.

Choice of Enemies: A Nathan Monsarrat Thriller - M.A. Richards (book review)

Time for another book review that I got as an ARC reader :)

A tale of greed, betrayal, and vengeance, CHOICE OF ENEMIES is the first in a series of espionage novels featuring Nathan Monsarrat, a retired Central Intelligence Agency deep cover operative with an extensive knowledge of black gold and expertise in weapons, women, and Benjamins.

Light sweet crude is the mother's milk of the Niger Delta. As the price for each barrel of oil rises on the international markets and the stakes for securing the black gold increase, a consortium of American oil companies and the Central Intelligence Agency plot to secure the flow of the crude. In Africa, though, plans unravel as quickly as cheap socks, and promises between partners have the lifespan of a mayfly.

Nathan, now a Dean at a small college in Massachusetts, is visited by his former mentor at the Agency, who offers him a blunt choice: either travel to the Dark Continent to lay the groundwork for the coup d'etat, or condemn the woman who saved his life to a brutal execution. Out of options, he returns to Africa, where he discovers that the Agency plans to reward his services with an oil soaked grave.

Assisted by a coterie of new and old allies, including a beautiful vorwith a thirst for power and a yeshiva bocher with a fondness for Armani suits, as well as his own sharp intelligence, considerable wit, and substantial charm, Nathan parries the Agency, circumvents the consortium, and exacts his own vengeance. In doing so, he learns that his choice of friends is as important as his choice of enemies."

My Thoughts
I had never heard of  M.A. Richards beforeI got the chance to read this book. I am happy I got the chance to read something from a new author and this book is very good and interesting with a very well developed story. The story drags you in and it is easy to follow the story and what is happening in the book.

Even if the book is good, I have a feeling that something is missing and I have been thinking about it for a few days and I think what I miss in the story is that little extra that you get from authors who has written a few books. What this book is missing is what a lot of first time books are missing and it that experience and that the author dare to do stuff with the material. This is not always something bad, and I dont say it is a big problem in this case but I do miss it in this book when I am reading it.

I can say that I have big hopes for M.A. Richards as an author and for future novels and crime books. This story makes it clear that more is to come and I think that M.A. Richards is an author who has the potential to be big with a little experience.

I can recommend this book because it is well written with a well developed story. I enjoyed every second I was reading the book and I do not regret reading it and I cant wait for more from M.A. Richards in the future!

You can also read my review on goodreads and on Amazon

Bad Boys for Hire: Ryker (Bad Boys for Hire Series Book 1) - Rachelle Ayala (book review)

So I just got my hands on a book from the author Rachelle Ayala, I have reviewd her books before and this is one that isnt out yet. I got it for a honest review. And here are my honest review.

Pre order it the book here

Synposis (may be changed by author in the future)
Sexy and explosive. A modern day Romeo and Juliet story with a surprising twist.”

Florist Terri Martin lives a calm and peaceful life. Maybe too calm and too peaceful because she can’t remember the last time she was in a relationship.

Terri calls Bad Boys for Hire to book herself a date for her thirtieth birthday party, but before she can hire one, she meets Ryker Slade and his bad-ass motorcycle.

Old vendettas resurface and soon, Terri has more than she can handle when she learns that her and Ryker’s love is as doomed as Romeo and Juliet’s.

Ryker thinks he has a way out, but can Terri escape her fate, or will she find her lover dead before she wakes?

My thoughts
This is the first story in a series and I must start to say OMG what an amazing story. When I am writing this I am suffering from a major book hangover due to this book. It did really blow my mind away.

First off, this is like all Rachelles books, very well written with a core story where romance is a part of it but not everything. The story is great and you instantly get the feeling for the characters in it. Both Terri and Ryker are awesome, so different and so similar and perfect for each other but of course it is not that easy and this book shows that what you do as a child sometimes comes back and bite your ass as an adult and that you cant really run from your problems.

The story is surronded by love, family feuds and bikes, the perfect combo but not as blase as you might think when you read about it. The story is way more than that and is really deep with a lot of thoughts and feelings behind it. It is a little bit of a modern Romeo and Juliet story but still, very different from the story too. which I really love.

I decided to read while my better half was working so I thought a few chapter would be nice, it ended up with me finishing the book, and he having a late dinner. but I think it was worth it. I coudlnt stop reading and I even took my ereader with me into toilet and read instead of normal cuddle with my dog.

As you may understand by now, I really LOVE this book. It was amazing, I laughed, I rolled my eyes, I felt “come on guys” and I even cried a little. But it also left me with a big smile in the end. When I was reading I felt my heart bat heavier when it was really messy and you didnt know which way it would turn to and what they would do. Not many romance books has that effect on me.

I cant wait to the next book in this series. I cant even stop talking about this book which annoys people around me. When this book comes out, take the chance of reading it or you will really miss something. This is not like most biker romance book, this is so much more and so so much better.

The Remingtons: Blush of Love - Rachelle Ayala (book review)

I read this book a while ago but havent uploaded the review (im sorry) but I thought it was time now :)

Talented video game designer Safire Chu is gun-shy when it comes to dating real men, especially since she spends all her time shooting at their avatars.

Football player, Gunner Gibson, needs a high level multiplayer video game account, and none of his buddies are willing to give theirs up. Gunner enlists the help of his publicist, Safire’s sister, who offers to steal her superuser account if he’ll take Safire to a New Year’s Eve party.

A bit of champagne and the countdown to the ball drop loosens Safire’s inhibitions. When her company’s newest secret game is pirated, Safire wonders if the man she’s fallen for at first blush is not all he seems.

My Thoughts
This is a story about how two gaming nerd can find love in the most strange way. It is a fairytale that you either love or hate and I love it even if I hate one of the main characters but my hate for him makes the story awesome. It iss a very well written story that takes your breath away and it do not leave you untouched. It has everything you can think of in a perfect mix.

I myself is a nerd, and I am a gaming nerd but not only. I found this story really good and I can pick things from it into real life. How you fall in love with a person online and how you also fall in love with the same person outside of the game. Happened to me…

The story is so well written and interesting and you cant stop reading it when you finally starting it. I read it on my way home from holiday and I have never felt a flight that is so long to be so short. The book keept me occupide and the world around me faded when I read it. This is a must to read book.

Catch my heart - Lyssa Layne (book review)

Time for another book review and this time I got this book for an honest review. In fact this book is 5 different short stories in one but that didnt scare me off.

Buy it as ebook here
Buy it as paperback here

No one said love was easy. No one said love was perfect. No one said love didn't hurt. No one said love would last forever. 

Follow these characters from your favorite Lyssa Layne books as they experience Valentine's Day in an unexpected, non-traditional fashion… 

Love is a Fire/Burst Into Flame - Andy Garrity lost the love of his life almost three years ago. Giving in to his daughter-in-laws, he decides it's time to get back in the saddle and go on a first date for the first time since high school. Before he even meets his mate, Andy's having second thoughts and ready to pass on this opportunity at love. 

Everybody's After Love/My Favorite What If - James Paul and Brianna Rossi are expecting their second child in less than a month. Brianna can't wait to have a daughter while James Paul is thrilled to have a new princess to spoil. Brianna has the perfect day planned for her husband until she’s blindsided in a way she never imagined. 

Loved by the Linebacker - Recovering from a torn ACL, Blake Purser isn't used to taking it easy. He also isn't used to not having his best friend, Camila Lemos, spend more time with her boyfriend and his brother Evan than him. His long-time on-again, off-again girlfriend, Molly Feiser, is doing her best to entertain him during the off season but Blake isn't prepared for her latest news. 

Holding the Other - Lee Maverick and Miranda Wallen are the king and queen of country music. The married couple have ruled the charts for the last ten years and fans love the chemistry between them. Before the night is over, this Valentine's Day will be one for the records. 

My Favorite What If - Sloan Talbott and Jacob "Smitty" Smith are spending their first Valentine's Day as a couple. In the short time they've been together, they've carved out the perfect nook for just the two of them. Having spent the last six months in Italy, it's time they head back to the States and learn to be together with their meddling families surrounding them 24/7. 

Love's not easy. Love's not perfect. Love hurts. Love doesn't last forever. Can these couples endure love at its ugliest or will it break them down more than they can endure? 

My Thoughts
This is a collection of 5 very sweet shorter stories and they are all very well written and really good. At first I thought that I would dislike the fact that it is not a book but 5 stories but I was wrong. They are really good when it comes to what they are about and how they are written. When I started reading I thought I would read one of the stories and then go to bed and it ended up with me finishing all five stories in one go.

If you are like me, and havent heared about Lyssa Layne before, this is a perfect book with short stories to start with. You get the feeling of the author and how she writes. I think this is a perfect introduction to an author and it makes you want to read more. I have bought more from Lyssa Layne after finishing this one becase it dragged me in and I really love the way she writes and the way she tells a stories.

I am writing this review a few days before Valentines Day and this is a perfect read before Valentines and on valentines. It is really 5 good love stories that makes your heart melt and ouze of love and happy feelings. What I really enjoyed is that it is romance but they do not have sex everywhere, its is about the main characters, the  hero and heroine, and how they deal with their day to day life and all the ups and downs we all know is their. It cant be better according to me that you mix the hero and heroine, their life and romance together. It makes the story deeper and better.

I am so inlove with this book of 5 short stories and I know I will reread them in the future and I will read more from  Lyssa Layne because this gave me the feeling of wanting to read more from the author. It is brilliant writing and the stories is so good in so many ways.

When Annie’s wings failed to form on her sixteenth birthday, she was banished to Earth, a life-altering reality that forced her to adapt to a new race, new world, and new challenges. Armed with little knowledge, Annie descends to her new home and learns of other half-angels, those who pull her into a world of demon-fighting chaos. 

As an Archer, Micha watches over Earth from the Veil. Sent to help Annie adjust, he finds himself drawn to her long after his orders have dissipated, and when her ruthless demon-killing ways reach an extremity he can’t ignore, he finds himself questioning the very core of his upbringing: will he turn his back on the angels and save Annie, or will he remain hidden within the shadows and watch her die?

My thoughts
So I dont even know where to start about this book because it did leave a deep impression of me. I finished this book last night and it was a pretty quick read but it was an awesome read. It easy drags the reader into the story and the worlds we get to see. but even if there is a few places, Upper veil, earth and lower veil it is easy to follow and the worlds are nicely described so you never gets confussed.

Annie wasnt a person I liked at first, she is young, almost 16, and she acts like it. She is a typical unsympathetic teenager but after everything that happens, she changes and my thoughts and feelings for her changes too. I start to like and enjoy reading about her and her new life. Sometimes she is still navie and dont listen to her feelings and what she has learned but then again she is still just 16 and I dont think any of us was better in that age.

Annie talks a lot about “Micha” and for me it was just a normal angel and then we get to know its Michale, and felt really really stupid who didnt connect Micha with Michael. But this also makes the book very interesting and makes the book full so surprises both good once and bad once.

This is a book for young teenagers and you can see it in language and how it is written, there are places where I feel that the book is “thin” like,there could have been more but I am an adult and for a teenager this book will be perfect. I dont think they would find places thin as I do but I am also used to read “heavy” fantasy books. That the book has places where I want more, will not do anything with the overall “grade” of the book because I really enjoyed it and want to read the second book that Taylor is working on. So this is the first awesome book in a very promissing series.

This is a must read book, specially for younger teenagers but also for adults. it is beautiful and really interesting. It keeps you captured from the first to the last page.

Release tour for the Valentine Pets & Kisses box set with book reviews

The Crazy Girl's Handbook - DelSheree Gladden (book review)

I just realised that I have forgotten to post this book review here on my blog.

Watching her two nephews and a puppy named Thor for the weekend was supposed to be fun for Greenly Kendrick. Sweating to death at a never-ending baseball game while getting gum in her hair, soda down her shirt, and an ice cream pedicure wasn’t part of the deal. Neither is finding out the best blind date she’s ever stood up is there to witness it all. 

Longest. Weekend. Ever. 

Except it doesn’t stop at one crazy weekend. Embarrassment turns into mortification, a head wound, and being patch up by her amused knight in shining armor. 

Roman Carpenter can’t help laughing at Greenly’s mishaps, but for some reason, he sticks with her through it all. At least, until his ex-wife shows up and starts causing trouble. What started off as a strange, yet promising relationship, might be able to survive spiteful exes, but adding in a stalker that puts everyone on edge and pulls the police into the mix, might push everyone past their breaking point.

My Thoughts
I must say that I loved it from the very first word until the very end. It was so funny and I laughed a lot and it is also a very sweet short romance story. The mix between the humour and the romance is a perfect balance. this is really a book to brighten your day and your valentine.

The characters is very well developed and felt so real. This could be real people in a real day to day situation. I really really enjoyed reading this short story because it was so real and funny. When one funny thing after the ohter happens you cant help but to feel both love and feel sorry for the character.

This story is just amazing and so funny and sweet at the same time. This is a must read.

To dance again - Hebby Roman (book review)

Second Review for today is also a book I got for an honest review. Its "To dance again" by Hebby Roman.

They say a woman never forgets her first love, and Maricel Cardona hasn't forgotten Ramón Morales. She remembers dancing all night in Ramón's arms to the sensual beat of their homeland, Puerto Rico. When her family forced her to move to the States, she didn't know she was carrying Ramón's child. 

A self-made multi-millionaire, Ramón hasn't forgotten Maricel and the passion he felt dancing with her. Now, at the pinnacle of his success, he's withdrawn from the world to safeguard his own secret. A secret that, if revealed, would change his life forever. 

Reunited after twenty-seven years, will the high school sweethearts get a second chance at love, or will their secrets tear them apart?

My Thoughts
This book was a really quick and enjoyable read for me. I finished it very quickly because I just didnt want to put it down when I was reading it. The story had a very nice flow in it because it was very well written with good, realistic characters and a good realstic enviornment. Of course the story is not without its drawbacks and intruiges but they are exected and was fitted perfectly into the story and gave the story a depth that was needed.

I like how the book is written and that you as a reader can connect with the characters and you end up rooting for them and want them to succeed. I did that and Ramon was one of the characters I really enjoyed in the book.

What I liked was how the surrounding where described, I could see the countryside, I could smell the food and almost taste it. I used all my senses when reading and I really enjoyed that depth that is so easy left out by so many authors today.

The story flows very well and as I said, this book is a bit of a quick read but it is nothing bad with that. I really enjoyed the book and how it was written and how the story went forward by itself without feeling forced.

I can recommend this book because it is a very nice written book with a very interesting story with a good flow. I will give the book 4/5 starts. it looses one star because even if it is really well written and has a good story, it left me with a feeling of wanting more and not being completly saticfied. there are more to do with the story and to make it a little deeper and less air-hearted but all in all a very good story.

No Going Back - Petie McCarty (book review)

I have not been active in a while now due to personal issues, like going on and off into hospital so I have mostly been reading and sleeping. Feeling better so I will try to update the reviews for the books I have read! First off is "No going back" by Petie McCarty. I got this book for an honest review.

Kellen Brand's inheritance turns out to be a whopper -- one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel! Since Kellen is convinced no sane woman would choose to live in Riverside, she vows to sell her farm and quick. 

Her handsome and reclusive neighbor Luke Kenyon must block the farm sale or risk exposure of his family's secrets. While Kellen has located one potential buyer, she faces a town full of objectors. Someone is trying to frighten her off, and Luke is forced to step in and rescue her more than once. 

Unfortunately, Kellen can't seem to stay out of trouble. She stumbles onto a clandestine hazardous-waste-dumping operation next to her farm, and she prays Luke has one more rescue up his sleeve. It's her only hope of staying alive. 

Unless her mother really did leave her a guardian angel…

My Thoughts
At first I had a bit of trouble getting into the book but that may be due to me being sick but after a chapter or two the book became really interesting and charming and I couldnt put the book down. The story drags the reader in and it is a very nice mix between love, thought, and laughter. I did laugh a few times and it lightened up my day.

The characters and surroundings is very well developed and "real". Everything feels very real and you feel that is has gone a lot of thought and feeling to make everything so realistic and believable as it is. I really enjoy reading books where you are in the story and you are so into it and everything is so well developed that you think it is real and you are their. And this book really has that. It makes the book so much better and it is one of the really strong points of the book.

The language is very good and well used. I normally like to talk a little about how the language is used to drive the story because a book can be better or worse depending on the level the language is on and how the language is used. Petie uses a very good language and it helps drive the story and it is fitted for the book, the story and the time period , which I find very important. The language is of a good level so even a non English native speaker understands and picks up new things, I know because I am not a native English user. 

I really really enjoyed this book and give it top marks. It has everything a good book should have and it very well written with very well developed characters and places. it feels so read and I can so see myself going back and reread this story in the future, that is how good the book really is. So I can really recommend this book to others.
