After Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 2) by Gwyn McNamee

5 ++++++++ Stars

************************************************

The first words out of my mouth when I finished this are hidden up in that line of stars for many reasons…the first being Amazon doesn’t like swearing in their reviews and the 2nd is three of the words I used can not be added because they just can’t… This was a short quick read but had the impact of a full length novel, that’s just part of what this author does so perfectly!

This author hates me, I’ve decided that must be why she ended this book and the next one is not readily available yet…I can close my eyes and picture her finishing this part, setting the date for the next and then sitting back saying…Yes..that will do with an evil evil laugh while doing so!

So as I’ve said many times regarding anything I read by this author, this was truly amazing..I’m getting used to the darker side and feel like it might be totally mastered by this author as well as anything else she writes.

DO NOT read this one without reading Wrath, trust me on this, it wont work…As hard as I tried to despise Alek he found a way to draw me in and with his future plans floating out there waiting to find their way into book 3 I just can’t figure out how this author is going to handle all of this and that’s why she’s the writer and I’m the reader.

I cant write anymore without saying too much so I’m going to end this here with the hope that anyone that reads this review will run out and immediately one click both of the books in this series…They are amazing and I just don’t know if I will make it to August…Sigh….

Fictional-ish: A Friends to Lovers Romance by Natalina Reis

5 Stars

Love a good friends to lovers romance and this one was a bit different as it spanned many miles and much time apart and hurdles that made this story unique.

Scotland has always been somewhere I want to visit someday and this book took me there and made me feel as if I was there. Livie moved there to open a new bookstore and she had everything, well almost everything..She left her best friend who in her mind betrayed her beyond repair and as she tried to build a new life Kyle and the hurt he caused her was never far from her mind.

I loved this story, every part of it..I even loved to despise Mia and cant help it but I fell head over heels for Cal and cant help but hope that just maybe this author will let this story continue and let Cal and even Jenny have their own stories.

This is not my first book by this author and absolutely will not be my last. I love the way her words flow and grab a hold and not let go till the very last page.

I highly recommend this story and really anything by this author.

Loved it!!

I read this book twice as it is a pretty quick read. I love where the author took this story but I found it a bit awkward at times while reading, my favorite part was actually after the story and the message that was supposed to be gained while reading. The activity was awesome and the list of things you can be thankful for was a great topic starter since I decided to sit with my grandsons and let them lead the rest of my review.

I did have to read a few parts a couple times with them to keep them interested and had much more luck with them after the last page when I opened up the conversation with them about the story. The practice loving-kindness was probably my favorite part as it opened up some awesome conversation with the boys because they understood and shared stories from their classrooms and friends. The activity was awesome and although I’m not sure they will take it any further than our time together they did enjoy the time we discussed it and that was awesome.

So all in all I think this book is great, the story itself did lead into some great time with the kids and I would recommend it.

5 **** Stars

This is not really easy to say since I’ve read 99% of this series but I truly think this was my favorite so far. I loved the push and pull between Dane and Shana and how their relationship was tested and also that it was not the main focus of the story. As with all of the books in this series it is full of danger, suspense, and the perfectly placed twists and turns. I loved the progression of these characters especially Ronnie, to see how he started and how strong he has become through this series was awesome, and now a major player throughout this whole series has me completely torn, not sure where his story is headed and I’m worried because he has been a favorite.

I dont have the words to explain how much I love this series and wish it was something I could actually watch because I can see this being absolutely binge worthy and I can not wait to start from the first book and read straight through on a quiet weekend.

I would not recommend starting at this book, there is so much history with all of these characters and with the way this one ended you will need the whole story to feel the complete impact of what’s left on the table. I need the next one NOW!!

Many thanks to this author for this story, I pick each one up with total confidence I’ll be totally satisfied when I reach the last page.

Amazing!!

Whew!! I am exhausted..this book..Oh my word…You know how there’s times when you feel like you need a good cry? Well pick this book up and you’ll get the good, the bad and the ugly cries all out of the way in one fell swoop.

I’m not sure where to start with this review so I may jump around a bit…This one hit every feel, and it wasn’t an easy ready and I knew it would not be from page 1, this subject has touched my life and I would normally back away and not read this book but then in comes this author who I already love and admire and just draws me in and took such care in how she handled the writing in this entire story, it was beautiful and it might sound weird but I felt protected while reading and that is just one reason this author is so amazing.

I found myself staring at nothing at times while reading catching myself asking those hard questions that a person never even wants to think about and then would jump back in and literally could not put this book down till I finished. On the other side of the coin I found myself smiling a lot and even laughed out loud a few times and found another favorite book boyfriend…SIGH… Everyone needs a Kellan, I fell head over heels quickly.

This book took my breath away and filled me with so much hope and although the road was a bit rough and frustration took over a few times I can not imagine not reading this story and so glad I have it to read again. You must read this book…It was absolutely amazing!!

Well done Miss Bondurant and Thank you!

Out of the Box Collection: A Second Chance Romance Series: The Complete 3-Book Collection by Jennifer Theriot

5 Stars is nowhere near enough……

Jennifer Theriot has plucked me out of my real life world and inserted me into a story that has completely consumed me for the entire time I spent reading it, and here I am afterwards still completely in awe of this author.

I chose this series because of the authors name being on the front covers, I have fallen in love with this authors writing reading a few of her other books…Reading this series has literally ruined me…I just can’t…. The other reason I chose to read this series was because of her taking a chance and going outside the box and featuring characters that I myself can completely relate to and understand.

I can honestly say I have never read a series that hit as many emotions as this series did. I felt everything deep within and seriously feel like I was transported into this dysfunctioning beautiful group of people. I love family sagas but this one went to a whole different level for me, and the bonds that were already in place and then those that were formed in this series again were perfection, one friendship in particular just blew me away. I cried so hard at times while reading, I had the air knocked out of me at times, I shook with anger at times, but I can tell you that I savored every single word on every single page.

Ive actually come away from reading this series with a few new thoughts about life and truly wish I knew how to join together the words to explain how much I appreciated this story.

This author is a master storyteller and not only will I reread this series many times but I will also own these books and will treasure them forever. I have a few favorite series and each one for reasons that keep them at the top of my list, this one as of this second and I am sure for many more seconds to come is my favorite this year and definitely at the top of my favorite series of all time.

I cant express in words how much I loved these 3 books..Thank you Miss Theriot!!!

Out of the Box Everlasting (Out of the Box Book 3): A Second Chance Romance Series by Jennifer Theriot

I’m going with 5 stars because thats all im allowed, but this book is deserving of so many more.

I am completely Speechless…Finished this part of the series about 30 minutes ago and can not even function right now.

So much happened in this book and Im wore slap out, a better word would be ruined, or shattered, or shocked…I just don’t know…

I’m gonna try to write a review for this book, I will however not get into any of the storyline itself because first, there is too much, and second it would ruin the whole series if I did that. I mentioned in my last review that I feared many of the bonds in this book would be tested and I was doing a lot of praying… Well that praying never stopped throughout every page. I don’t know if I have ever been affected so drastically by words in a book, but when I say there were times it took my breath away I’m not even kidding, and when I say I couldn’t read some parts till I dried my eyes I’m not even kidding. I felt this story deep within me and I was constantly being derailed because I would think oh I know what is going to happen and then that which I thought would happen didn’t and I’d end up shaking my head because it would take a whole different course…A brilliant course!

I can’t even comment on the last quarter of this book…I’m just thankful that this author will never know what I was thinking or the names I may or may not have called her.

Simply Brilliant!!

Omg my heart is racing and I’m thanking all that is holy that I have Everlasting ready on my kindle. This series is killing me, I don’t think I’ve ever had my breath took away while reading quite like while reading this part of this series…Tommy and Emily’s wedding about ruined me…then I’m rolling with laughter when Todd goes to pick up the amp from Ash and Liv’s not knowing they were there..OMG…WMD had me dying!

I’m so beyond impressed that there is no predictable going on…there was a couple things I was so afraid were going to blow up and so far I’ve been pleasantly pleased that Miss Theriot decided to blow up other areas throwing me totally out of whack.

The bonds are still as strong in this part and I’m totally in love with Todd……scared for the next part, I have a feeling these bonds are about to be completely tested and I’m praying for so many things going on and can not wait to begin the next part.

Loved this book so so much! and this could end up being one of my favorite series ever and I cant even go on because I must start book 3.

HOLY MOLY!! I so completely and sincerely utterly LOVED this book. I actually can’t believe I am able to not move on to the second one so that I can write this review. It’s already a given how much I love this author but she has taken it to a whole new level with this story.

I cried so hard when I read the last sentence..I could feel everything going on at that club, I could picture all of the kids, I could picture Ash and the love that was pouring out of him and I could almost feel the feelings that Olivia was feeling at that point.

The bonds that were written about in this story were beyond amazing and each character is a favorite for one reason or another, well, except maybe one and that one worries me just a bit so I’m bracing for that but have complete trust that Miss Theriot will handle whatever happens and comes up in the future of this series.

Saying that I am completely invested in this story is an understatement and I can not wait to begin Regifted.

I am so so happy I picked up this series, I’m not getting a whole lot done when it comes to being a real life adult but oh well, it will all be there waiting on me when I finish.

Thank you Miss Theriot for giving me a character that I can relate to!

Amazingly Awesome!!

Crafting Love (Wine & Furniture Series Book 1) by A.E. Gamrat

5 Stars

I Loved Kelly, I connected with her for some reason and felt like I knew her and she was one of my best friends…This is not my first book by this author and also will not be my last, I truly enjoyed this story. The friendships that were kind of fun and also at the same time kind of aggravating were just one part of this story I loved the most.

I want to work at the Wine and Furniture store, actually I want to own it and run it exactly as it was in this book with Delilah and Daisy running it for me…This was an awesome story and this is officially my favorite read by this author yet. Every girl should have their own leaky basement and a Kirk who remedies the situation. I loved this relationship and how it formed and grew and even though there were hurdles along the way and issues that are always bothersome with people getting in the way or inner feelings that make things more complicated than they should be this was well written and had me hooked from page 1 and I read it in one sitting and didn’t want it to end..I can not wait to see where this author takes this series next.

I highly recommend this book and also this author.

Loved it!!!
