A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This story is pretty tough for me to review.  At this time, I do not want to give out a summary of the story and I will just go ahead and give my thoughts.  The story starts, innocently enough with a mermaid, Anna rescuing an angel falling from the sky.  Apparently, this angel, Jonah was wounded in a war between Angels and Dark Ones that has been going on for centuries.  Wounded and unable to fly, Anna saves him and with his direction, brought him to an underwater cavern that has magical properties.  At this point, Jonah asks […]

When in Paris… by Beverley Kendall | Book Review

The book starts in French class when Olivia Montgomery locks eyes with Zachary Pearson her longtime high school crush.  Unbeknownst to Olivia, Zach also shares the same attraction but was giving her the cold/cool attitude because he couldn’t act on his feelings.  Apparently, Olivia’s mother had an affair with his uncle which resulted in divorce.  As a result, he was trying to deny his attraction to her and was pretty much indifferent. Their friendship started when April, Olivia’s best friend invited her to have dinner with another friend Troy, Zach’s roommate.  April and Troy try to match them up together […]

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

  I am currently reading Sabrina Jeffries’ backlist.  I believe I started reading some of her backlist last year, but I wasn’t able to read any book from the Swanlea Spinster Series.  This book can be read as a stand alone however, there are mentions of the other sisters.  Unfortunately, this story picks up after Juliet gets abducted (hence the title After the Abduction, duh!) so we never get to read about how she was abducted but we do get an answer as to why. As I have mentioned, the story starts about 2 years after Juliet Laverick gets abducted […]

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I read the Dreaming of You first and was intrigued by Lily Lawson. In the book Dreaming of You, she was portrayed as a respectable lady albeit with a dubious past. In the first few chapters, I wasn’t warming up to Lily as I should. I thought her antics (especially the one mentioned in the first chapter) were ridiculous. However, as the story progressed, I empathized with her. The hero, Alex Raiford, is not as dark as Derek Craven (who I absolutely love) however, I think he is the perfect match to Lily’s headstrong character. I enjoyed reading the […]

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Giles and Minerva are the perfect pair! The third book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series is one if my favorites. Miranda starts falling in love with Giles as a young child during her parent’s death, however, falls out of love when Giles gave her the set down in her teens. Because of this, Minerva started writing serials with Giles as the villain. Giles had to put a stop to it as she was starting to allude to Giles’ undercover duties to the Crown. Although Minerva denies her feelings for Giles, she hasn’t stopped loving him I […]

Midnight’s Wild Passion by Anna Campbell | Book Review

Midnight’s Wild Passion by Anna Campbell | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS At first, I did not like Antonia at all. Sure, I felt that she was acting appropriately when she said that she hated all rakes, ergo hating Lord Ranelaw however, there was just something about her that I just did not like. That is, until the end when I found out what she went through when she was disowned by her father. I was a little surprised about what Antonia went through when she ran away with Johnny (the rake who broke her heart 10 years ago) and I was also puzzled why her brother didn’t even bother […]

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

Vanish by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Disappointment does not begin to cover what I felt when I read the sequel to Firelight. I just could not get the love triangle between Jacinda, Will and Cassian.  I just wanted to hit Jacinda in the head. So much so that I just could not finish this book!  I didn’t even flip ahead to see how the whole book ended!  I just thought it was so ridiculous for Jacinda to be flirting with these two guys when she was already in love with Will!  Agh!  To top it all off, she goes and runs away to Will, […]

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

Torment by Lauren Kate | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I was a little bit disappointed about this sequel. Again, this book left me hanging and there was still a lot of issues that were left unanswered.  To be honest, I am still a little bit puzzled about the development of Daniel and Luce’s love story. True, they are destined to be together and have been falling in love in their past lives, but it was hard to believe how they fell in love in THIS life. It also seemed that Luce was not that interested with Daniel since it was apparent that she was flirting with another […]
