First Light by Michele Paige Holmes

First Light by Michele Paige Holmes

A Unique & Enchanting Mixed-Up Fairy Tale! I went into this blind. Other than knowing First Light was a Young Adult fairy tale romance by Michele Paige Holmes, an author I’ve previously enjoyed, I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly entertained and enthralled throughout! First Light is not a straightforward retelling of a traditional fairy tale. There were some common elements—good and evil fairies, three wishes, a heroine who doesn’t know her true identity—but the way they were woven together made it fresh […]

Solstice by Jane Redd

Solstice by Jane Redd

An Awesome YA Dystopian/Romance! I love this type of story—young adult characters trying to survive post-disaster. In Solstice, the disaster is climate change—nearly constant rain and flooding. I would DIE in this world! The political/community setting is typical dystopian, a society where the adults are controlling (and ruining) everything. The basic conceptis emotion control via implanted chips. Although the chip thing has been done before, I still really liked it. I had high hopes for this story line, and guess what? It met all of […]

If We Were A Movie by Kelly Oram

If We Were A Movie by Kelly Oram

A Clean(ish) New Adult Contemporary Romance Let’s address the whole New Adult/Clean-ish thing first because this is going to be a make or break for some readers. The “New Adult” designation is sort of code for 18-25 year old characters and steamy love scenes. When a New Adult book is marked “clean” it doesn’t always mean no sex or swearing, what you’d typically expect from a “clean” romance. It usually means that relationships are implied, but not descriptive. And that is the case with this […]

Escape to Eden by Rachel McClellan

Escape to Eden by Rachel McClellan

A Fun, Plot-twisty Young Adult Dystopian Thriller Enhanced DNA can give you awesome superpowers, but it comes with a price—a shortened lifespan. When “Primes” have been genetically designed to the point that they’re no longer altogether human, pure human DNA to extend your life becomes a priceless commodity. If you’re one of the remaining few “Originals,” everyone is hunting you. Escape to Eden takes a few of the tropes from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld (two of […]

Pimpernel by Sheralyn Pratt

Pimpernel by Sheralyn Pratt

Although I’m part of a book tour, I bought my own copy of Pimpernel. Leverage. Mission Impossible. Pimpernel. Yep. If you like those first two, you’re going to love Pimpernel! Although Pimpernel is marketed as a romantic suspense—and there is enough romance to make that an accurate description—I was so much more intrigued with the suspense part of the story. There were secret identities, twists and turns, cons within cons, with just a bit of romance. Pimpernel seriously reminded me of some of my favorite […]

While each book is a stand-alone read, they all contain the recurring character of Pearl, the matchmaker. The story of Lani and Easton is takes place against the backdrop of Hawaii.

{Review + Giveaway} Lost King by H.B. Moore

{Review + Giveaway} Lost King by H.B. Moore

Part Spy Thriller, Part Historical Lost King is book #2 in the Omar Zagouri series. The series includes Finding Sheba (book 1, which I read and liked) and Beneath (a novella, which I have not yet read). Like Finding Sheba, which alternates between the current day adventures of Omar Zaguori and the historical story of Queen of Sheba, Lost King alternates between Zaguori and the Egyptian female pharaoh we now refer to as Hatshepsut. The interplay between story of the lost scrolls which might change […]

{Review + Giveaway} The Undead Road by David Powers King

{Review + Giveaway} The Undead Road by David Powers King

A Clever & Not too Freaky Zombie Book! Some zombie books are just too much—too freaky, too scary, too much blood and guts. For example, The Walking Dead. (Yes, I know. It’s a tv show, not a book.) After the first season, I quit watching because it quickly became a weekly bloodfest and I just got tired of it. The Undead Road by David Powers King is NOT like that. It’s a wonderful story of family, courage, friendship and loyalty, set against a backdrop of […]

{Review + Giveaway} Christmas Kisses Clean Romance Anthology

{Review + Giveaway} Christmas Kisses Clean Romance Anthology

Shhh! In my real life, I’m known for not liking romance. And really, I don’t love it. At all. But, I have a confession to make. *looks around to make sure no one’s eavesdropping* I sort of, kinda, maybe really like those Lifetime Christmas Romance movies. So when this blog tour popped up in my review radar, I thought I’d give it a read. Also, I have friends who like romance. AND it’s only 99¢ right now for Amazon Kindle. AND I’ve read other romances […]
