Book review + excerpt: Choose Me ~ R.C. Boldt

Book review + excerpt: Choose Me ~ R.C. Boldt

Falling in love with your best friend you know since childhood… Would you give into your feelings or would you be afraid to ruin a beautiful friendship? Choose Me tells the story of Magnolia and Hollis, who grew up together. It’s angst-y, romantic and real, I simply adore it. “Just like Grandpa Joe said in last week’s sermon, a sweet […]

Book review + excerpt: Marriage for One ~ Ella Maise

Book review + excerpt: Marriage for One ~ Ella Maise

For me, marriage is about being married to the person you love most and who loves you, the person you build a life and a future with. Getting married for anything less, why would you do that? Marriage for One tells the story of Rose and Jack, who’s marriage isn’t based on love (that changes of course). I have enjoyed […]

Book review: Wolf Hollow ~ Nikki Jefford

Book review: Wolf Hollow ~ Nikki Jefford

For some reason I don’t read paranormal romance very often. The ones I’ve read are very over-the-top (especially in the romance department), and I need my romantic stories to be realistic-ish. But I also love to discover new authors, and the blurb of Wolf Hollow intrigued me. I’m very glad I’ve decided to give this story a chance, I love […]

Book review: Time ~ Penny Reid

Book review: Time ~ Penny Reid

Like the ending of Motion, Space has left Mona (and us readers) with some questions. Mona knows about Abram’s feelings for her and how she feels about him, but the rest is still uncharted territory. With Time we get the conclusion to Mona and Abram’s story, I have enjoyed reading it very much. “My feelings haven’t changed. I’m still insane […]

Book review: Pieces of Us ~ A.L. Jackson

Book review: Pieces of Us ~ A.L. Jackson

Sometimes the past doesn’t stay in the past, and brings back a lost love, hurt feelings and the promise of a second-chance. Pieces of Us tells the story of Mack and Izzy who fell hard for each other as teenagers, and now as adults get a chance at a do-over. I love this emotional story. “I knew he was more […]

Book review: Touch My Soul ~ Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Book review: Touch My Soul ~ Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Falling in love with someone you can’t be with (technically speaking). Would you be able to ‘forget’ the object of your affection? Touch My Soul is the story of Ben, who can’t help falling in love with Ru. I have enjoyed reading this romance, but the ending was bittersweet. “When I was 23 and thought life couldn’t get much better, […]

Book review: Like the Wind ~ J. Bengtsson

Book review: Like the Wind ~ J. Bengtsson

World-famous boyband singer meets hairdresser / pet sitter in the direst of situations. The start of something good or not? Like The Wind tells the sweet and charming story of Bodhi and Breeze, I’ve enjoyed it very much. “This meeting of the minds was no accident. Breeze and I had been brought together for a reason, and I was committed […]

Book review: Until the Tequila ~ Brynne Asher

Book review: Until the Tequila ~ Brynne Asher

Normally I’m not the biggest fan of short novella’s (I always want more, hihihi), but Brynne Asher is one of the authors I gladly make an exception for. Until the Tequila is part of Aurora Rose Reynold’s ‘Happily Ever Alpha World’ and of Mrs. Asher’s ‘Killers Series’. I’ve enjoyed the sweet (most of the time) story of Evan and Mary. […]
