The smell of perm lotion and the sound of the dryer’s blowing hot air camouflages the truth, the lies, and the real stories behind the people inside the hair salon. Cut & Blow flash in neon lights above the glass front of the outdated shop, but inside young talent shave and layer hair while making small talk with clients, that over […]

Book review: Out of the Ashes ~ RC Boldt

Book review: Out of the Ashes ~ RC Boldt

Out of the Ashes is the latest book by RC Boldt. It’s a standalone story, but the characters from previous books by the author play a part in this book. In Out of Love, Hendy went missing, his faith unknown. I knew RC Boldt wouldn’t let a man go missing like that, and I’m glad she gives us his story. […]

Book review: Intercepting the Chef ~ Rachel Goodman

Intercepting the Chef is the first book in Rachel Goodman’s new ‘the How to Score Series’. This is also the first book I’ve read by this author, so going in I didn’t know what to expect in terms of writing and story development. The story pleasantly surprised me; I really like the characters and the journey they make. “You can’t […]

Joy Ride is Lauren Blakely’s latest Romantic Comedy. Like many of her other books, it’s almost told entirely from the guy’s POV, and the couples from her previous books are happy to make a (small) appearance. Joy Ride tells the story of Max, custom care builder extraordinaire and Henley, his former apprentice and the one lady who drives him mad. […]

Book review: Paths ~ Brynne Asher

Paths is Brynne Asher’s newest story and the second book in her ‘Killers Series’. Like the previous book Vines, Paths has a lighter tone then her Carpino books, but that doesn’t mean our Hero and Heroine won’t have to work for their Happily Ever After. I’ve enjoyed the story of Maya and Grady. “There’s pain hidden there, because I recognize […]

Book review: Four O’Clock ~ Josephine Traynor

A few months back I read A Quarter to Twelve, my first book by author Josephine Traynor. I love the main characters and their story, but their sidekicks (her best friend and his younger brother) where just as funny. I wanted to know more about them, and with Four O’Clock I do. I real like Chris and Charlotte’s sweet story. […]
