Handle With Care (Chase Care Book 1) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Faith Jackson

Handle With Care (Chase Care Book 1)Handle With Care by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I definitely found this book relatable. As a healthcare worker, you can never deal with grief the same as when you work in the field before or after quite the same as before choosing this profession. Also being from New Orleans, I found a personal sense of connection to the book even more so which is why I started reading it in the first place. It makes it that more familiar and more interesting to me to feel a strong connection. But besides the obvious connections, the storyline of these two’s story of departing onto foreign waters test their union in matters of life or death.
Another reason I loved this is because I went through something similar during coronavirus and my love life at the time but it was less theatrical than this book. But this book is a tale you’d never forget. It takes you down a rabbit hole of emotions. I absolutely enjoyed this. Great read!!!!

A Dowry of Snails and Mud by Brittany Tucker – Review by Faith Jackson

A Dowry of Snails and MudA Dowry of Snails and Mud by Brittany Tucker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just love how these characters are total opposite and not in the way we’re used to in a genre like this. The female isn’t your normal damsel in distress as she knows the lay of the land, literally. The fact that it’s not your normal “fairy tale” makes this an interesting story to keep up with. I don’t want to give too much away but it’s the best story I’ve read in a minute as it kept you guessing but in unexpected ways.

Degrees of Innocence: Dark Mafia Romance (Cruel Deceptions Book 1) By Via Mari – Review by Faith Jackson

Degrees of Innocence (Prestian Series, #1)Degrees of Innocence by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a beautiful book because it tugs at your emotional well-being while taking you on a ride with the characters you feel apart of. You’re torn between fighting how you feel (drawn from the characters and both their sides) or to wish and overcome all of it for a risk at love or more. But it’s not as easy as you’d think. This is only the beginning and I’m down to go down the rabbit hole to see where this leads.

Amaleigha and the Big Idea by Janice Pratt – Review by Faith Jackson

Amaleigha and the Big IdeaAmaleigha and the Big Idea by Janice Pratt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For a kid’s book, I found it inspiring and as a kid’s book, that’s downright surprising. I not only enjoyed the characters but admired Amaleigha the most! Her personality rang true for a lively 5-yea-old and entertained me and my kids upon reading this to them. My 7-yr-old is still acting like her at home and at school: don’t judge me, LOL but it’s so funny.
Witty, funny and downright informative: she reminds me to keep the inner child in me alive and kicking!

Devlin by Angela K. Parker – Review by Faith Jackson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What makes these books so entertaining for me is the way that the steamy chemistry starts off slow. It’s also steamy that you can feel it as you read each word and as it builds more, it makes you excited for the characters and their intensifying adventures or ways to keep them going. This is a sensational read. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is unexpectedly beautiful and makes for a very inspirational read. This book taught me some lessons that I’m still learning in the outside world: how to show up for myself outside of others. The sense of Christmas made this book that much more pure and beautiful to keep close to your heart. So touching. Great read!

I enjoyed everything about this book from the characters, the funny dialogue and how enjoyable it was to read but most of all, I related to Olivia. She’s a lovable character who I can see parts of myself in. Great read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this as a standalone because I didn’t know there were other books prior to reading the references within. I’m starting to read the others since I had to catch up and not be in the loop. But this book itself was so beautifully written, I fell in love with the characters, and I absolutely loved the story! I don’t wanna give it away but it was well worth the read and hopefully the others are as well.

My 7-year-old son and I enjoyed this book. It taught him the same things I’ve always preached about hard work, determination, patience and my son loved how it all came together in the end to work out in Moby’s favor! He and my 2-year-old son also enjoyed the pictures. Parents, this book, is worth the read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like how it’s not written how you’d think it should be but worth the read. I don’t usually take to short stories but this one was worth the read. I like how it was different another time. Also, zombies aren’t usually my thing but I tolerated them for this short read, LOL. The way the author wrote this was cute and intriguing so kudos, I liked!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Right now, I’m reading so many books but this one made me put the others down. I have a sweet spot for poetry and musicals or music, in general. This book reminded me why I’m a writer (when I have time) because it made you feel raw and intense emotions you’d never thought of or dreamed of. Big thanks to author for taking me to a place I can only imagine to reach as an author! Great work!

Fractured Worlds: Courage in the Apocalypse by Courtney Konstantin – Review by Faith Jackson

Fractured World: Courage in the Apocalypse CollectionFractured World: Courage in the Apocalypse Collection by Maira Dawn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let me start off by saying, I usually don’t like post-apocalyptic dystopian tales but I’m starting to like them more and more. This book is one of the reasons why. The author captured my attention because their heart is in the right place for getting their work out their and for a cause I can support.
That being said, let me dive into the review: These stories take you to another place, somewhere easily imagined with the descriptions provided, it hits a lot of places when you’re reading where you never imagined to go but keeps the human aspect in perspective. I loved how easily it was to take us to another place. It’s entertaining, fun to read, and realistic (at least to me) but full of action and suspense as well. You’ll enjoy this one just like I did.

This story is quite the emotional roller coaster ride but in a good way. It transforms you to another time, another place and allows you to enter what these characters endure from numerous perspectives. Your eyes will open, your heart will open and release but brings clarity to who and how much they’ve endured. Bravo, to the author: Great work!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, let me say I like that it’s made in the mid-1990s which drew me in alone. Second of all, the action surrounding these partners trying to catch a killer makes your heart race even further but it’s also a connection between the characters as we witness their friendship intensify right before our eyes. The story, the action, the characters: All of this won’t let you put this one down. Get into it!

So many things made this an interactive read that brought the reader into the story. From Eliza being from the Americas, all that’s going on with not only her family but the mystery itself to the flirty nature between she and Heath, this definitely steals your attention with ease. I love the style of writing, the dialogue and of course the action around this mystery. Very fun to read!

As a single mom, I became enamored in this book and the direction it went. I fell instantly in love with both characters. The way their inner thoughts were explored to their interactions and once they finally collided easily where we, as the reader, thought they should be all along, really made it worth the read! Check it out — you’re gonna love this as much as I did.

I’ve read the first part of this series and instantly fell in love with it. It’s no different with this part. This part draws you deeper into the story as you figure out who Nurse Morgan is outside of her paranormal powers but are introduced to other characters as well. Watch this story unwind in the land of the living and on the other side as you indulge in this page turner! Enjoy and pick up this great read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the type of book to sweep you right off your feet and into the lives of both characters to be a fly on the wall in their story. It was romantic, funny at times, but most of all charming as it teased you with these two falling in love but doing so naturally and innocent. Pretty easy to read and straight to the point. Entertaining till the last page with characters you can’t help but fall in love with. By having read previous works of the author’s I highly recommend this one and many more.
