Book review: Raincheck ~ Marlo Lanz

Rockstars, young people on the road, mis – communications; all ingredients for a good story. Raincheck by Marlo Lanz has all those things, and more. From what I can see, this is the author’s debut book, and I’m pleasantly surprised; I’ve enjoyed reading the story of Ty and Liv. “I hated the way Ty made me feel. It was like […]

Book review: Fake Wife ~ Stacey Lynn

Why do I read? To entertain myself I guess, to escape my busy life and bury myself in a fairytale (not that my life isn’t, but you know what I mean). A friend recommended Fake Wife to me, and after reading the blurb I had to read it. Fake Wife is sweet and entertaining; I love Corbin, Teagan and their […]

Book review: Deep ~ M. Malone & Nana Malone

I not only read books by authors I already know, but I also love to discover a new author. Or in this case, and author duo. Especially with new-for-me authors the blurb (or the synopsis) really has to draw me in. The blurb for Deep intrigued me, and I’m glad I picked it up. It wasn’t what I thought it […]

Book review + excerpt: Carnival ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

Book review + excerpt: Carnival ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

One of my favorite ‘older’ series is ‘The Traveling Series’ by Jane Harvey-Berrick. I love these angst-y books about the carnival, the not-so-normal life these people live, and the characters of course are amazing. Carnival tells the story of Zef, one of the side-characters from the previous books. He was a bit of a mystery before, but I love his […]
