Awakening by Karice Bolton

Awakening by Karice Bolton

Here is another book I went into somewhat blind.  I wasn’t sure what exactly Awakening was about, so it was nice to really discover the story for myself.  Bolton takes an interesting turn with a popular genre, and I actually enjoyed that. Awakening wasn’t mind-blowing, but it was a nice, quick read. The story starts […]

Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Frater

Last Bastion of the Living by Rhiannon Frater

The description of the book sounded badass, but admittedly, I knew there was the potential to go completely south with this type of story. But that wasn’t the case. I have to tell you how incredibly kick-ass this book is! The Last Bastion of the Living is set in the future, after the world succumbed […]

Embrace by Cherie Colyer

Embrace by Cherie Colyer

Embrace is another book that I went into without fully knowing what it was about, and I liked it that way.  After reading the description, I was expecting something else.  I actually love when that happens, as long as the story is good.  Thankfully, Embrace was good enough to make me like the unexpected turn […]

The Green by Karly Kirkpatrick

The Green by Karly Kirkpatrick

This is the second book by Kirkpatrick that I’ve read, and she is now two for two.  There is something about her writing style that I love. Plus, she knows how to make an opening with her books, she hooks you from the first page. The Green begins with Ari’s college resume, which all seems […]

Destiny’s Fire by Trisha Wolfe

Destiny’s Fire by Trisha Wolfe

First of all, I know that Reese and Dez are going to make my “Best of 2012” lists, just so you know.  Destiny’s Fire was a really fun, addicting book.  I honestly haven’t read many books about shifters, so this was kind of new territory for me, and I’m so glad this one turned out […]

Blue Sky Days by Marie Landry

Blue Sky Days by Marie Landry

What a beautiful, heartfelt story.  I’m not one to be openly mushy, so it’s hard for me to explain how touching Blue Sky Days was.  I loved how personal it felt, as if Emma were a friend telling me about what happened during that year of her life – her journey of self-discovery and finding […]

With Good Behavior by Jennifer Lane

With Good Behavior by Jennifer Lane

You want drama?  Well here it is.  With Good Behavior has it all – blackmail, physical and emotional abuse, betrayal, murder, romance, redemption, sexy time, and humor.  I was excited to read this book because of the psychology and Navy connection, and it definitely incorporated both into the story, plus a lot more. Also, there […]

Sweet Dreams by Aaron Patterson

Sweet Dreams by Aaron Patterson

Bravo, Mr. Patterson.  Bra-vo.  I pride myself on being able to predict a storyline early on in a book, and now I have to admit that you got me.  I was so not expecting what went on in Sweet Dreams.  Wait, let me rephrase that… I thought I knew what to expect, but I was […]
