Princess in Love by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

Princess in Love by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

I read this book after I read the last book of the series, The Prince’s Bride because I was intrigued by the mention of Princess Rose in the book (where her HEA wasn’t even mentioned).  I actually bought this book last year but didn’t get around to reading it until after I read the final book in the trilogy. I’d like to start with Rose and Leopold as a couple.  I was actually intrigued by their relationship when I read the prologue.  In it, Leo was in jail for treason and for plotting to kill the king (Rose’s brother) with […]

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

Let me just say that I fell in love with Cross and Philippa the first time I read their verbal sparring. Both of these characters are so likable and the chemistry between the two pretty much jumped off the page! Pippa is really naive, adventurous, and too serious for her own good that I was practically laughing at her notions and thoughts. I also thought she was the perfect match for Cross who I see as a sensitive man despite his sordid past and reputation….

Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

First off, I would like to say that I love the cover. This was one of the books from the bookstore that I had to stop and read the blurb just because of the cover. This book is also a good example of the cliche, “do not judge a book by it’s cover.”

That being said, I enjoyed the story. I thought it read like it was written for a younger YA audience, but what the heck, it was OK. It is a unique take of the genre Utopia/Dystopia. I hessitate to call it dystopia since the setting does not happen on Earth and the themes tend to lean toward Utopian.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer | Book Review

Cinder by Marissa Meyer | Book Review

This is a story about a cyborg named Cinder who lives with her “stepmother” and two “stepsisters.  They are not technically her step anything since she was adopted.   I have mixed feelings about this book.  Although I enjoyed it, I had problems with most of the plot.  This was a pretty quick read for me, but I expected more from reading the blurb. I’ll start with the cons first. Dystopian theme – The story takes place in a dystopian Earth after World War IV in a place called New Beijing.  Supposedly, this country arose in the same location of […]

By Love Unveiled by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

By Love Unveiled by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

This is a reworked story that has been out of print written by Sabrina Jeffries as Deborah Martin.  Before I give my review, I just want to let everyone know that I have not read the original book so I cannot point out the differences between the two and which parts have been reworked.  That being said, I totally enjoyed reading By Love Unveiled.  I admit that it is different from what I am used to Sabrina writing, but the female protagonist, Marianne is as feisty and strong as her newer heroines. The story starts off with Marianne, masquerading as […]

Everneath by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

Everneath by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

Everneath is loosely based on the Greek mythology of Persephone and Hades and of Orpheus and Eurydice with mentions of the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris.  The story starts 6 human months after the feed where the main protagonist Nikki awakens after being sent to the Everneath (or the Underworld).  The Feed or Feeding is the way an Everliving (those immortals that live in the Underworld) can continue their immortal lives by stealing/feeding on the emotions and memories of the living (humans).  The feed lasts for a hundred years which is like 6 months of human time.  Once you have been […]

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 […]
