Book Review: Granted Wishes by Tanya Vought

Something magical is happening in New Hope…

Granted Wishes was unlike any other story I’ve read before. The characters are quirky, sweet, determined, stubborn at times, but truly likeable and overall good people who have been dealt a raw deal in life. Gracelynn is worn down from the loss of her husband and it seems no amount of time will heal her broken heart. She still manages to be one spunky gal, who happens to be really good at getting Gio’s boxers in a bunch. When an accident leaves her stranded at his cabin, she has to be careful what she wishes for.

Review: Hidden Truths by Nicole Colville

MY REVIEW:

I’ve read a M/M romance before, but it was nothing compared to this. Nicole is unafraid to push the envelope, her delivery is wholehearted, and she just tells her story like it is… dirty, gritty and erotic. Allow me to reiterate that this story is INCREDIBLY hot. I dared think I could pull the STRAIGHT GIRL move at first and try to picture one of the men as a woman. Nope. Did not work. The incredibly descriptive act of body parts touching just does not allow for it. 1 - hidden truths (more…)

What readers are saying about Finding Destiny…

Review by: Shana Vernon  starstarstarstarstar

Incredible read!  I am Destiny in a nutshell; with the exception of the job loss, fantastic spa retreat, and slutty friend. Oh, and I’ve been stranded in the snow, but hot guys on snowmobiles did not come to my rescue lol.  All that aside, I definitely connected with a girl lonely on Valentines day, who gave up on love, and just wanted to relax with her girls and find direction.  If that’s ever been you then this book is a must read.  Or if you’re looking for a new book boyfriend Skylar is grade A prime choice angus steak! 😉

REVIEW:

My head is spinning right now. There’s tears in my eyes, fear in my heart and this story is not even close to being over. Just wow!! This author, in his debut release, magically weaves a plot that leaves you wondering what is going to happen next, lets you inside the heads of each of the characters, and slowly unfolds the reasons why each of them are the way they are.

Review: I’m With You by Glenna Maynard

This is my 5 Star review of I’m With You by Glenna Maynard.

Gripping romance with a paranormal twist; my fav.  Cutter is my man.  He gives Bella exactly what she needs to help her cope with her depression after watching her sort-of boyfriend fall to his death.  Add to that her boyfriend has a twin brother and you just know there is going to be trouble.

i'm with you

The emotions in this story go way beyond the mental anguish one suffers when dealing with a sudden death.  It delves deeper into Bella’s mind, sharing her innermost fears and feelings, and exposing her tendencies to injure herself physically.  She blames herself for the death of Harlan and cuts herself intentionally in an attempt to bleed out the guilt, release the poison surrounding her heart and to make her feel something for a change; anything.

Cutter makes her feel in a whole new way.  I loved that. (more…)

Here’s my 5 star review for Nicole Colville’s Hidden Child:

This is a must read!! It touches on so many issues from the child’s perspective; child abuse, mental illness, a child’s struggle with loving a parent who continues to wrong him.I’ve never read anything quite like it, but it is so real.I wasn’t sure that I’d enjoy reading a story from a child’s perspective, especially since I mostly enjoy romance novels, but I found myself having to read this story to the end.  It was all encompassing.  In fact, there are a couple of vivid images that I would prefer to forget, but I can’t.

Terribly saddening, but very well written. Read it to see what I mean.

He Can Hold Me Captive Any Day

Captive at ChristmasSo I just finished reading ‘Captive at Christmas’ by Danielle Taylor.  I tell you, it doesn’t need to be Christmas time to read this steamy novella.

Summary:  Mac’s house is under renovation and so he’s staying at a quaint cabin for a few weeks until the work is complete. Little does he know that Hannah also booked the luxury cabin for that time. He seems to have serious trust issues and thinks she’s some kind of spy or assassin and in turn holds her captive on her two week vacation.

Though their relationship starts out with a gun to her head, Hannah seemed to be a rather willing victim and if you knew what this guy looked like, so would you. He is such a sexy bad ass that you can’t help but like him. (more…)

Classroom Chaos

Classroom Chaos

This is a book review from my little sweet heart Jenica. She is 7 years old and just finished reading the novel Magic Kitten – Classroom Chaos.

There’s Classroom Chaos when fluffy black and white kitten Flame appears at lonely Abi’s boarding school!

“In the beginning, there was a mean girl named Keera at the boarding school and she had to share a room with Abi. Then Abi got put with a nicer girl named Sasha because Keera was being mean to her and doesn’t have anything in common with Abi. Now Keera got put with Tiwa and Marsha because they had lots of stuff in common. All three of those girls were mean. They said there was an old lady grey ghost, which was weird because ghosts aren’t real.

Primal – Part 2 of 2

Here’s part two of my book review of the PRIMAL novel, which is review of the third and fourth novellas therein by Lora Leigh and Jory Strong. For these two alone I give 5 stars!!  *****Primal

3.    ANGEL-CLAIMED by Jory Strong.

I got right into this story the second I started reading it. Jory Strong made it easy to understand the world they were living in and developed the world around you as you got to know the characters.

Sajia was a djinn and blood slave to a predominant vampire family. She was living every day like it could be her last, because it could be.

Addai, a dark angel, had been searching for her for over a thousand years and finally learns that they will be reunited soon. When Addai, white wings and all, insists to Sajia that she was his wife in a previous life and he’d done everything in his power to get her back, she can’t help but feel some inexplicable bond that they share.

Though she doesn’t remember their life together, she learns that he is no stranger, since he continually shares his memories of them making love, which usually involved her submissing.  She initially refuses to let him dominate her, until she can’t fight the urge to submit to him. When she finally gives in to his desirous demands -and lets him tie her up– it means so much more than super-hot domination. It means she trusts him. (more…)
