Book Review of You Stole My Heart by Kristal Dawn Harris

My Review

I’m a sucker for this type of story. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when I opened this novella, but I’m happy I stumbled across it. The novella was not only well written, but it had a story that both broke my heart and warmed it at the same time. Short and sweet with realistic and loveable characters right off the bat, I really enjoyed it!

Book Review of A Foreman’s Unplanned Bride by Blythe Carver

My Review

I loved this one! Molly and Lewis were always at each other’s throats, but they were true and they were genuine. Every thought, every emotion was laid out on the table for the other to see, which only added to the richness of their relationship.

Each character, even the side characters, were written with such depth and detail. I couldn’t help but love every one. This quickly became one of my favorite enemies to friends to lovers story that I’ve read.

This is the second book I’ve read in this series, but I’m itching for more!

New Release from Mona Sedrak

From the Author

Gravity is a heart-warming story of two individuals from remarkably differing backgrounds that are inexplicably drawn to one another, forming a strong friendship and falling in love–– despite the odds against them. The story depicts the beautiful Middle Eastern culture I was raised in and its many traditions as well as some of its challenges. Readers will identify with this story, no matter their background because it speaks to and awakens the human heart.

Gravity is about tolerance, acceptance, understanding, and forgiveness. Finally, it is a story of love and hope. When I started writing Gravity several years ago, I couldn’t have predicted how relevant it would be today. At the end of the day, I want readers to understand that although we may be different, as members of the human race, our similarities out-weigh our differences and love is the universal language that binds us.

New Release from Patricia McAlexander and My Book Review of Stranger in the Storm

stranger in the storm book cover

My Review

When happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy tales and romance novels, is it possible for Janet to find the man her heart was meant to love?

After Janet Mitchell flees a previous relationship and encounters the fierce rain and wind of a hurricane, fate steps in, or rather a trees falls, and smashes the bed of Wes Corbett’s truck. The incident brings them together, fate tying a lasso around them even in the face of terrifying danger.

This book was seriously awesome! The author did an incredible job at coaxing the reader into the story and keeping them there. The details were amazing, the story intriguing, and the suspense kept my eyes glued to the story, flipping page after page until I lost track of time. I loved that Janet is a romance writer, and the way she met Wes was just like a romance novel in real life.

Looking for a suspense novel with an interesting storyline and great romance? Stranger in the Storm ticks all the right boxes. Highly recommend!

Book Review of My First My Last My Only by Denise Carbo

My Review

I absolutely adored this book! The romance is not only entertaining, but it’s perfectly paced and had me laughing and smiling the entire time. I loved Franny. I loved Mitch. I loved the relationships Franny develops throughout the book.

Franny is the most hilarious character I have read in a long time. She is constantly getting into scrapes because of her clumsiness or lack of spatial awareness. Awful things happen one after the other after the other, and it felt perfectly natural for the character to keep finding herself in an awkward situation.

I enjoyed the themes of family and finding your own self-confidence and self-worth. The characters and events fit perfectly with those themes, and I especially enjoyed watching Franny grow as a character. Ten out of ten would read this book again.

My rating: 5+ stars

Book Review of Blueberry Swirl Waltz

My Review

When at first life goes in a different direction than you planned, take a detour.

Katie has always dreamed of getting out of the small town and becoming a ballroom instructor, to later participate in ballroom competitions. When she lands the job of her dreams, fate takes a different turn when her mom breaks her arm. With no one else to take over the ice cream shop, she drops everything to help out her mom’s business. However, fate takes a right turn the moment Chaz Hollander steps foot in the shop.

This book had everything. From heart-warming family scenes to sizzling, romantic chemistry to a strong, feisty heroine willing to go the distance to save her family’s business from foreclosure. I enjoyed every moment of this book. Definitely recommend!

My rating: 5 stars

Book Review of Dragon’s Shadow by Allison Morse

My Review

“A great king looks to win the war, not merely the battle.”

Kylie has always been different from her abnormally strong anger to her gut feeling that something more out there exists. Her “visions” of another world writes her off as crazy, and she spends plenty of time in a mental hospital. But she soon comes to find out that she’s not crazy after all, and she has a twin brother in another world, a land full of magic and wonder.

The writing flows very well. I loved Kylie as a character and I especially enjoyed getting inside Jarlon’s head. The author did a phenomenal job at world-building, creating something I have never read about before.

The book ends in a way that felt unfinished, so I’m wondering if there will be a sequel to Dragon’s Shadow. Overall, I did enjoy the book, and I look forward to discovering more books from the author.

My rating: 4 stars
