Forbidden by Jess Michaels | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   MY THOUGHTS Unrequited love is probably one of my favorite romance themes so I was very excited to read the first book in Jess Michaels’ The Wicked Woodley’s series. This did not disappoint. As I’ve said before, this is a story of unrequited love between the classes, which makes the story all the more exciting! Lady Audrey has been in love with her brother’s best friend, now steward […]

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd | Book Review

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS “A fantastic end to an awesome series” A Cold Legacy is the last book (sigh* and sad face) in The Madman’s Daughter series by Megan Shepherd and is a classic retelling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (I have to type is like that because it does not sound as good if written the other way LOL). I have a lot of bitter-sweet memories about this book.  I HATE saying goodbye to all the interesting and unique characters from the series.  I also feel like I grew with these characters; like I really invested a lot of my time on them […]
