{review} Purple Hearts: A Novel by Tess Wakefield

{review} Purple Hearts: A Novel by Tess Wakefield

I really enjoyed this military romance. Often the hero is brooding (my favorite), but even more appealing was that this plot seemed a little different so I was ready to jump in. And Ms. Wakefield pulled it off; I was intrigued by Luke from the start. I liked the fact that he seem to have demons to fight, especially his addictions. I’m a sucker for a sexy hero with plenty of baggage. Interestingly enough I didn’t […]

{review} The Heartbeat Hypothesis by Lindsey Frydm..

So the first thing that drew me to this book was the cover, I’m not going to lie. Just look at his butt it. 😉 Then I read the synopsis and it sounded like a deeply emotional story so I knew I had to read it. The plot of the story is great, but I’m a stickler for details, and I’m not sure that Audra would really be able to contact the donor’s family, and […]

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma Scott

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma S..

I loved this story! This is the 3rd Emma Scott book I have read, and she is 3 for 3 – she writes amazingly deep and emotional love stories that touch me and make my heart full. Both Zelda (I wasn’t a fan of her name but went with it) and Beckett were very broken, and neither from your typical New Adult baggage. Both of them were still strong, trying to live their lives but not doing a very […]

Brooding heroes. Do you love brooding men? I sure do and my god, Ace is the epitome of a tortured and brooding hero. Then there was the way I connected with both Aidy and Ace. It’s one of those things that can’t be explained, except I got this feeling in my heart, this feeling where I couldn’t stop thinking about the book and I was desperately vested. I honestly think it’s got to be the […]

Loved, loved, loved this second chance romance. Katie and Devin were first loves that didn’t work out and left an empty place in both their hearts for years to come. And Katie was left without answers. Both went on with their lives, but it wasn’t until tragedy struck Katie that she fell low enough to do something to shake things up. She sent a letter to Devin. And he wrote back. The very second they […]

Flawed (Ethan Frost #4) by Tracy Wolff

Loved it. This is the 4th book in the Ethan Frost series but can be read as stand alone, and now I have to go back and read the first 3. The plot was simple, yet the writing was so well done that it kept my attention the whole time and before I knew it I was at the epilogue. That, my friends, is the sign of a good story and an author who has talent. […]

Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1) by L.J. Shen

God, I FREAKING LOVED THIS. Oh man oh man oh man did I love this. I know, I need to calm down so I can actually write a review about how much I loved this. First, I loved the chemistry (holy hotness!). Next, I loved the characters and their darkness. Who am I kidding, I also loved the characters and their lightness. The writing style was simply superb; words flowed, relationships developed and all of […]
