Our thoughts...

This will make the perfect book to read when I have a book hangover. It will cleanse my bookworm palate and leave me satisfied all at the same time. I also do not foresee it getting old for me any time soon.

Donners of the Dead is thrilling, well-written, and riveting.

I savored this book. Since reading Sarah Maas’s latest release a Court of Thorns and Roses I decided to finally take the plunge into her young adult world. Let’s just say I was not disappointed.

Review: Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh

Our thoughts...

Desire ~ Sex ~ Decisions ~ Explosive

This book has is it all: angst, hot sex, character frustrations, suspense, and the fear of finishing the book because you’ll have to wait for book two. Gail McHugh knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat, that’s for sure. I didn’t want to put Amber to Ashes down, yet I didn’t want to finish it either.  I loved everything about this book: the explosive chemistry between the characters, watching them make their decisions, whether they are right or wrong. The dynamic between Ryder and Brock and Amber was engaging. She finds something in each man that she thinks she needs.

Flashback Review: Awaken by Nina Lane

Title: Awaken
Series: Spiral of Bliss #3
Author: Nina Lane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Snow Queen Publishing

Pub Date:  2014
Rating: 2 Stars

Our thoughts...

Ugh. I am so thankful that is over. Writing this review is almost as painful as finishing the series. I don't think I can say anything new that I didn't already say in regards to the first two books. Book three is just more of the same that I encountered in the first two books. (See my reviews here and here).

Flashback Review: Allure by Nina Lane

Title: Allure
Series: Spiral of Bliss #2
Author: Nina Lane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Snow Queen Publishing

Pub Date: May 2014
Rating: 2.5 Stars

Our thoughts...

This was just okay for me. I have issues with the flow, as with the first book. There are moments when an event in history is mentioned, cuing a flashback only to not flash back. Other times there are flashbacks thrown in at seemingly random times. 

Flashback Review: Arouse by Nina Lane

Title: Arouse
Series: Spiral of Bliss #1
Author: Nina Lane
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Snow Queen Publishing

Pub Date: January 2014
Rating: 3 Stars

Our thoughts...

I was a little disappointed with this one. I feel like this is an attempt at being a Megan Hart novel with its "depressing love story with sex thrown in." It's something that can be done well but this time just feels forced.
