Review – Unspoken by Brenda Rothert

Review – Unspoken by Brenda Rothert

Unspoken on October 19, 2014 I love a good second chance romance, and was so excited to discover that Brenda Rothert had written one. I really wanted to love this book, but it just didn’t work for me. Unspoken absolutely had the potential to be an amazing read. I was initially so intrigued, but once I got into the story, I was continuously frustrated with the immaturity of the hero Brady, in particular, and the silly decision making by both Palmer (the heroine) and Brady. Palmer and Brady are engaged to be married when Palmer’s mother becomes seriously ill. Palmer decides to take it upon herself to step up and take care of her mother, along with taking over the care of her disabled younger brother. When Palmer and Brady sit down to discuss this, along with their future, their engagement ends due to their serious lack of communication, and […]

Review – Unbound – Colours of Love by Kathryn Taylor

Review –  Unbound – Colours of Love by Kathryn Taylor

Unbound – Colours of Love on Apil 13, 2015 2.5 to 3 stars! This book first drew my attention because it was recommended to fans of Fifty Shades of Grey. I was intrigued by the premise, but other than the young millionaire/virgin formula, the comparisons stop there. Grace is a young university student, and on the first day of her internship in London, meets the sexy and filthy rich Jonathan Huntington. As the owner and founder of Huntington Ventures and place of Grace’s internship, Jonathan is seemingly untouchable. That is, until he soon asks her to ditch her expected intern work and status, to come work with him personally. This of course is where the drama starts to unfold. The story started out well, and I really enjoyed the first 25% or so, but then by the second half it started to drag a bit. I questioned quite a bit […]

Review – Say My Name by J. Kenner

Review – Say My Name by J. Kenner

Say My Name on April 7, 2015 Say My Name is the first book in a new series, and is a spinoff of the Stark trilogy. This is the first J. Kenner book I’ve read, and it can definitely be read as a standalone. While characters from the original series are a part of this new story, I never felt lost or wondering about details from the past. Now that I’ve read and enjoyed Say My Name, I’m planning on going back and reading the Stark trilogy soon. It’s been five years since Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks spent two amazing and unforgettable days together. Two short days were enough for Jackson to be ready to connect himself to Sylvia forever, but she shatters their connection when she begs him to walk away for him for good. Jackson has since become a world renowned architect, and Sylvia as Damien Stark’s […]

It’s an undoing.” It only took one moment of weakness for Laney Keating’s world to fall apart. One stupid gesture for a hopeless crush. Then the rumors began. Slut, they called her. Queer. Psycho.

College is her chance to start with a clean slate. She’s not looking for new friends, but they find her: charming, handsome Armin, the only guy patient enough to work through her thorny defenses—and fiery, filterless Blythe, the bad girl and partner in crime who has thorns of her own.

Review: Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler

Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler on March 31, 2015 Buy on Amazon Goodreads Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance Pages: 240 You can predict the tides but not the changes they make. Gunnison Del Valle was the current in the tide that was about to change my life. Crash one we met. Crash two we fell in love. Crash three changed our perfectly planned lives forever. Review Looking for a book to take to the beach this summer or maybe something to read while you relax on the deck under the umbrella with a glass of ice cold sweet tea? Crashing Tides is a light and fun summer read full of sweetness and southern charm. Being the southern girl that I am, I’m always on the look out for romances about southern characters written by southern authors. This book was also nostalgic in a way because it brought back those feelings […]
