I was so excited to start Lake Silence by . I loved the first part of , and I was curious to see where the author would take us next. I wasn’t disappointed 😀 Welcome to a small town in the middle of Wild Country off the coast of one of the Finger Lakes, Lake Silence. Vicki DeVine is a recently divorced woman trying to make a go of the property she inherited in the divorce, The Jumble. What Vicki doesn’t realize is that the Jumble is actually a terra indigene community. This makes for quite the surprise when the book opens with one… Read more »

Review: The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

Review: The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory

February 23, 2018 Reviews 1

When I picked up The Wedding Date by , I was expecting a sweet, contemporary romance set over the course of a whirlwind weekend. I based that assumption off the title, having skimmed the blurb. Imagine my disappointment when the wedding date was only the first 20% of the book. Despite this disappointment, there were other factors that detracted from my ability to like the story. But before I get into those, here are the things I really liked about the book: Interracial couple: Alexa is black and Drew is white (hence the cover 😉) Meet during a power outage on an… Read more »

I really enjoyed Driftwood Cove by ! The last book in the kind of fell flat for me so I was hesitant picking this one up. But there was no reason to be. I loved every minute of this book and devoured it in almost one sitting (I fell asleep with two chapters left….granted it was 3am). For those of you new to the series, each book follows a different couple and is told in dual POV. It can be read as a standalone, but just know that other characters from previous books do show up in each one. Driftwood Cove follows the… Read more »

Should’ve Been You by is a sweet, contemporary romance about childhood crushes turning into more. The third book in the novella series, each novella focuses on a different couple. If you haven’t read the previous books in the series, it’s okay. These can be read as standalone novels. I had not read the previous books and found that I wasn’t lost and it was easy to read. I really enjoyed it! The story revolves around Jase and Becca. Jase has returned home, starting a cattle ranch after being in the service. I like Jace. He’s dependable, loyal, and a little vulnerable…. Read more »

Perfection….I don’t know another word that best describes my experience reading ‘s The Lost Savior. I make no secret my love for sci-fi and this book is the start of an amazing sci-fi series. At least I’m 99.999% sure it will be amazing 😀 The Lost Savior hooked me during the first chapter and I could not sit it down. I devoured it and then promptly skimmed through a second time to catch more details. Victoria King, Tori to her friends, is the main character and most of the story is told from her perspective. Tori is an athletic, confident teen in love who… Read more »

Review: Sugarplum Way by Debbie Mason

Review: Sugarplum Way by Debbie Mason

January 19, 2018 Reviews 0

I honestly don’t know where to start. Up to this point, every book by I’ve really enjoyed. I enjoy the small town setting, the life-like characters and their banter, and the romance. Each of her couples are unique, playing off each other’s strengths and the chemistry is usually off the charts. However I felt like all of that was lacking in Sugarplum Way.  Julia is one of my favorite female characters in so I was really excited to see her story. I mean she’s a bookaholic, how could I not love and identify with her?! Introverted, quirky, and shy, Julia is me… Read more »

Between the Blade and the Heart by is the first in her duology. This book was all action with a little romance which made it a fast read despite its size. My favorite part of the book though was the blending of urban contemporary with Norse mythology. It’s not a common thing in YA fantasy and I loved seeing it here. did a fantastic job of taking the mythology and interweaving it with today’s world. Following Malin, a young Valkyrie in training, Between the Blade and the Heart brings into question the choice of free will and the guiding hand of fate. Malin… Read more »

She does know that their friends with benefits arrangement can’t continue because it will eventually break her heart. The question is how does she tell Asher that.

Happy Saturday y’all! I’m a week late with this post but I wanted to be sure to share my review of the book y’all voted for in October. The Lie by is an intense read, full of surprises and twists I didn’t see coming.

I was given an ARC copy before the book came out and unfortunately it got lost in the pile. However when I found it I knew I wanted… Read more »

Oh my heart!!!! Saving Brad by is the fifth installment in her which follows one family and their relationships. Seriously these books are so addicting! I may not usually read or enjoy contemporary but has written such a compelling, dramatic series full of angst that I just cannot sit down. As the title suggests, Brad, the other side of the Faye/Ky triangle, is the main focus. I’ll be honest, I really liked Brad at the beginning of the series and may have shipped him with Faye more than once. I felt like his character was so tragic. He lost everything: his best friend, his… Read more »
