The girls are back, well almost all of them. We are more centered on Shayla and what her life has become since her split with Titus and Lissa who is her best friend, now. And I got to say, she really ended up on top and was really showing it at the beginning of the books. On this trail of finding herself, she went back to school and is a doctor. I ...
Her Final Breath by Robert DugoniMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I absolutely love thrillers, especially crime ones, and my favourites are serial killers, which this book was about.

Bragg V1 by Jack LynchMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I received a copy of this book via the publishers Brash Books, in return for an honest review. Can I just say that I cannot thank them enough for bringing these amazing books of the late Jack Lynch to my attention, I have to say that his books are amazing, well-written, and the characters so believable.
A Sip of Fear, by Brian Rush, is a sort of contemporary urban fantasy set on the streets of Seattle. The year is deliberately unspecified, but you can easily imagine the events playing out today anywhere in the world. Having briefly lived in Seattle, part of the charm for me was the occasional sense of recognition of the places visited. However, th
Written as one of “The Review Group” Review Volunteers, see http://thereview2014.blogspot.co.uk It is a very long time since I read a Western. Back in school we had Shane as a class book, and from the same era (and I'm showing my age here) I was a keen watcher of the two television series The Virginian and The High Chaparral. But since those long-a
My favorite series coming to a happy ending. Anna and Bentley have been through a whirlwind of emotions. From fighting their urges to leaving everything on the field these two have come across the final step in their relationship: acceptance. Accepting that love really can conquer all and guide you to places they both didn't think possible. I have loved this story from the stripper pole to the soccer field and what these two have in store for you in You and I Forever was more that I could ever have imagined. The start of this book had me confused and thinking I was missing something, but once you catch up with you see that these two were preparing for a future and one of them didn’t know it. One of the hiccups in their relationship was really not a bad one, but one that was going to be a hurdle. Bentley and Anna met in a strip club she continued dancing even when they were building a relationship. Now, the moment of truth comes in and love enters the equation where Bentley gives Anna the ultimatum. I kind of saw it coming but for me, was one of the one questions I had in my head. Second favorite part in the book for me.
Yes, they are back and right where you left them in the previous book. So it’s only befitting that this book is called Breathless 2 by Shani Greene-Dowdell. I actually really liked this book because it kept me on edge the entire time I was reading it. It had its moment where I was wondering what was really going on each of these characters mind. I was actually surprised about how well everything felt so balanced while leaving me gasping for air. My boyfriend was literally checking on me every second because I was yelling, screaming, and crying. This book had it all and definitely surpassed its former predecessor. Once you dive into the book, all of your questions are answered as you find out where all the character landed after Justine held Destiny at gunpoint. With Jacob realizing he was tricked, he makes emergency phone calls to protect his lady love. When the situation plays out, you see Destiny in the hospital opening up her eyes with Jacob nowhere in sight. Destiny’s mom and her ex-husband, Montie made sure Jacob wasn’t even allowed to see her.
This book had a way of testing the ultimate from my favorite couple. Anna and Bentley are back and this time, we are testing this couple's resilience. If you haven't read the first book, go ahead and stop by the book listing to get you and I Alone. In You and I Together, you get to see Anna and Bentley come together as a couple. You see the joys that Bentley gives Anna on a daily basis, while also proving to Anna how much he loves her. Anna was a joy as well because you really do see her evolving into this person who does not want to live without Bentley in her life. I found this book to be an awesome sequel to the first book and found some things in this book that made me laugh, cry, and think about the work you put into building a relationship. The one thing that became open up to us was the insight into some of the friends and family of Anna and Bentley. In Anna's world, you get to see Lo and Andrea. These two really put a spin in Anna's world and made her see that Bentley could actually be good for and that she shouldn't deny what she's feeling just because she's afraid. Bentley's world was a little hard to crack, but once you get through you are introduced to Shira and Ethan.
I have never read a story that involved BDSM, so when this author sent me her book. I felt intrigued to know what the big fuss was about. This book was oddly cool because it introduced you to this life of these two people with them having these feeling of love and then it took you into this dominant and submissive role that these characters played. Lauren Smith also made it into criminal mystery and to me, I felt like it was the trifecta of a really good read. So be prepared for one heck of ride in this book, The Gilded Cuff by Lauren Smith. The author waste no time diving you headfirst into this lifestyle as you meet Sophie who is new to this game and you are introduced to this club called the Gilded Cuff. Sophie is not here for fun at all, but actually for a purpose of finding one man. But don’t think she wasn’t curious because she was. Only because her lack in the touch of the male species has let her down. Deep down she wanted to know how that felt. By a stroke of good luck, she finds the man she is looking for and their connection starts with a game.
So through the tragic loss of her best friend, Alyssa finds herself back in her hometown for her funeral where she meets her ex, Drake. All I can say was, at this point I wanted to know what really happened. The first few pages you see what happened, but I go the feeling I didn’t get the whole story. Even though she had every reason to leave him, I mean I would have dipped out too. After the funeral, Drake is still feeling her despite her having this great life with another man in another state. You can almost tell that it never really ended. Alyssa ends up going back to New York and her boyfriend with all of this guilt and life goes on as normal. Drake isn’t feeling normal though because he is feeling Alyssa way too much despite her telling him that they couldn’t do this between them. It almost just felt normal for him to call her “Baby” and she didn’t object to it at all. He was all trying to convince her that what they had was real and would always last and she was torn between two men.
Just to clear the air, you have to read the first book before you can even understand what is going on is this second book. Alyssa and Drake, still more in love that ever and with a little bundle in tow, but not everything is what is seems. You also meet the best friends of these characters who you met in the first book in this series. This book is so steamy, I mean I thought I had read all there is when it came to the love Drake showed on Alyssa, but I was pretty wrong. Get ready to experience the old school loved mixed with a bit of new as you start to see other relationships form. This book picks up just a few months after the first book and you have come across a very huge plot twist. You see the aftermath of everyone trying to cope with an weird situation. Alyssa and Drake are still going strong. Weston is still coping with the death of his ex-wife and comes across a young woman named Bernadette that shows him that he can love again. The plot was very smooth but the details are what pulled me.
This book starts with one of those steamy mysterious scenes that had mind reeling. And to put the cherry on the cake, this man was not your regular joe off the street. Their meeting was fate, well it felt like that to me. Destiny is just getting out of a divorce and vowed to stayed single and loving it, but all that changed when she met Jacob. First off, this book takes a tailspin by showing you what happened and then turns around and shows you how it happened. It doesn’t stop there though as you see that Jacob has really strong feeling for her from jump street, so much so that he dumps his girlfriend for it. All is not what it seems when a month later, Destiny goes to see him. Jacob tells her one thing, but you are quickly shown to each other. You would think that is reason enough, but love has a way of always pulling these two together. Now at first, I felt like Jacob was all talk and lots of sex, but as I continued to read it. You see that he was really trying to bare his soul to Destiny and she was falling just as hard. Except Destiny was reluctant to really listen to her heart and her mind was really in control.
Is not just a divine tale of an unequal marriage, but a lesson of letting the Lord come in and fix your marriage. This book is story of one woman’s obstacles when trying to make her walk with the Lord match the same in her husband while giving you steps and healing to its readers. I liked this book not because it was a documentary, but because of it realness with the author. By talking about her own path and troubles, I feel she was really able to connect with readers who are having the same struggle and would be one of those books that I would give to not just couples who are going through it. I would suggest this to new couples as well so that they know and really look at each other and their own marriage. The book starts off with these prayer request of couples really going through that those really start to paint the picture of what you are going to be reading. All of these couples have found their spouses not walking with God as they are and that that was causing trouble that needed heavy prayer.
A story I really didn’t see coming. This love took place in a place that I didn’t think possible. It was really one of the reasons why this book was so hard to put down. The author took two different worlds, three really and started to merge them all together in one sexual tryst that will have you just constantly turning the pages of this next book. Take the owner of a very rich club and an exotic dancer that is very headstrong and mix them together. Well, you know what’s going to happen, but what you really want to know is how on this journey of lust. Now there are two sides to this first character which made me more intrigued to read this book. One one side Anna is young girl who lost everything due to a knee injury in ballet and had to reshape her life without dancing. She is going to college and is focused on the realization that graduation is close. She is very set in her ways and knows that she doesn’t want anything to do with the word ‘relationship’. Both there is another side of her that very few know about except in this establishment.
We come back to the streets of the H and its dirtier than ever. You get introduced to the veterans of this game and are given a more in depth look at some character that were in Rock City One, but didn't play that huge of role. When I started reading this, I was straight confused because it shows you one scene and then takes me back to the present day. I must say, this book was so good that I couldn't wait to get in the third Rock City. But before you do, take a look at this second because there will be twist and turns in here that you didn't see coming. Of course, we go to the main character Rockwell and to my shock and amazement, she wasn't with Rico. In fact, she wasn't even looking at Rico like that anymore. Issac was still in the picture as Rockwell was dating him exclusively. Rockwell is making a relationship work with Issac at the start of this story in part of Rico going ghost for months. She is also managed to get into fashion school and do what she loves most.
This book has given me everything that I have craved. Suspense, secrets, drama, love, and from all points I absolutely could not put this book down. I finished it one day and that is a feat that I haven't done in a long while. The book starts off with you having no idea what is happening and then from there you are taken for a whirlwind of a ride. You meet a young lady named Beautee Hill and to me, she served as a triple threat. She was married to thug herself that no one knew of. Still a virgin which meant she was faithful to a point and she was a federal agent, but not your normal federal agent. Underneath her skin, she held revenge and contempt for one man and his name was Zaire. The one man who put her husband behind bars in the first place. Beautee start on this path of redemption and revenge by being the finest thing on the planet in Zaire's eyes. No knowing who she is, Zaire enters the scene and hooked on her from day one and even though she doesn't want to say it out loud, after a few pages she is starting to feel him too.
This book gave me those goosebumps all up and down my arm while reading this book. But the funny thing is that, it was one of those books that once you started to pick up on the story line you did not want to put it down. I got to say it was creepy, scary, crazy good, but just to be honest not a book that I would pick up again. Every character in this book was connected to a forest and an ancient indian story contained within. It takes you a minute to connect the dots and the authors gives you very provocative scenes that will have you putting this book down at the same time picking it up just to get more. The first character you meet is Jed and his vibe was very hard to read. He is an prominent artist who makes huge reset in his life by buying an house in Spiritwood to get in touch with his artistic roots. From here, you start to learn of all the characters and you see how they all become connected in this quaint little town. Janet is young woman who is very frail and in a marriage that had me feeling sorry for her. Henry was the one person who was creepy to me but kept me guessing.
First off this house is seriously creepy it has a very dark history about a family that lived there. I give the authors kudos for that because I was creeped out, the minute I read that she fell off that cliff. The story centers around the mystery of Isabella and Richard the lovers who lives were ended very abruptly and no idea why it happened. Jane is a young women who is looking to her dissertation on a creepy house that is owned by Bastian You learn of Jane after all the creepiness and find that she is hooked to finding out the past behind the Hall. This is where you learn of Bastian and that this lovely mansion is being renovated by him. He is the owner of this place and also the reputation that his family has placed inside its walls. Jane gets a letter saying that she can come and visit as a tourist but she is determined to get access to documents that could make her paper the bomb.com.
Secrets? Yes there are tons of them throughout the book that I like to call an error in miscommunication, but the sinful part is where you completely lose me. The way I saw it there was only one sinful person in this story and he just got beneath my skin because his secret was the reason that everything and everyone around them was affected. In this story the book centers around a young woman named Symone who I saw, had a good life, a nice family, and long term goal that is starting to become fulfilled. She even finds the need to help out a friend and I found that this woman had everything she wanted except she had a hidden desire, a hidden voice that took the help of her friends to find.
I agree and disagree with this read because even though I believe that love conquers on. I am questioning if young love is really that strong. I felt like I walked through the twilight zone and was reading about the problems that puppy love has, but I was clearly mistaken. It was more of a tale about going after your dreams and following your heart as best you can. It had tales of friendships that were gained and broken. And unique set a character who each in a way had to grow in order to not just get what they want but learn how to come to terms with who they are and how they love. Lankenua is a teenage girl who is uprooted from her home in Africa by her parents and is flown all the way to the US of A, where she goes to school at Gramby High and runs her parents store part time.
