Review: Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle

Review: Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle

Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle on March 31, 2015 I went into this book mostly blind, really not knowing what to expect. As a fan of Karina Halle’s, I was hoping for some delicious angst, a unique story, and some serious steam. I ended up getting the unique story and steam, an overload of frustrating angst, along with something I didn’t expect: a new love for a country across the world. Josh Miles’ one night stand with Gemma Henare lights a spark in his otherwise dull existence. Their night together, and the intrigue and promise that Gemma shows Josh causes him to make the huge decision to take a trip across the world. With only her first name and very little money, Josh tracks Gemma down and they end up on a whirlwind road trip of New Zealand together. What happens next between Josh and Gemma is far […]

Review: Total Surrender by Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Total Surrender by Rebecca Zanetti

Total Surrender by Rebecca Zanetti on March 31, 2015 Genres: Romance, Suspense Series: Sin Brothers #4 Wow! Loved this book, and this entire series! I devoured all four books in less than a week, and was left wondering why in the world it took me so long to read this series in the first place. Each book just got better, and Total Surrender was my absolute favorite! Each book is based around a different brother, but it’s essential to read each book in order. This is not a stand alone series. Total Surrender was action-packed, full of suspense and some serious steam! These alpha male brothers are HOT, and Jory was no exception. As my new favorite brother, he well exceeded my expectations and then some. Rebecca Zanetti has nailed writing the perfect alpha male. They’re larger than life, deadly, beautiful, with an insanely strong commitment to family and to […]
