His First Lady by Avery Scott

Four Stars

Every man needs a first lady that isn’t going to bring him down but make him stronger. To struggle with him and to win with him. Kendall is a perfect first lady and Michael couldn’t have better. I really enjoyed the story. The author gave us the behind the scene view of politics. Which is mostly a bunch of men and women trying to get ahead. There are many that care but most are looking for careers. I think I would vote for Michael. We need more people who have lived at the bottom but made it to the top. People that are driven to be more and do more. The story was classic in its path but unique in the delivery. The characters were flawed but showed growth and a need to be better. You see how past experiences effect your judgement even when that’s not how you wanted it to go.

Ugh! Can I get a puke bag please. Lindsay Miller if Savannah doesn’t want Preston I will take him. The man is perfect in the most imperfect ways. Lord if you’re listening send me a big man like Preston lol. I really couldn’t decide if I wanted to fight Savannah or cry for her. Divorce is really hard and it takes something away from you that you never truly get back. I haven’t found it but I haven’t given up either. She just refused to try and wasn’t being fair to Preston. I don’t understand why people feel like children need two parents to be happy. Is it amazing when both parents are there and helping raise the child? Yes! But it’s also proven that a child can be just as happy with only one parent. I almost dropped my phone a few times when Savannah question herself about Trey’s father. If this was me Kevin would be swimming with the sharks. I really did enjoy the story though. It mirrored my life a lot. I truly related to some of the situations. I couldn’t get enough of Preston and Trey. They made the book perfect.

The Chosen: Book One: The Orb Quest Series by Cari Shaeffer – Review by Gail Guerrero

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Chosen: Book One: The Orb Quest Series by Cari Shaeffer

Four Stars

The weight of the world is on four teenagers shoulders. Chosen to find the orbs and save the world. Can you imagine at 17 having to fight a battle you were predestined to fight? The amount of growth it took these kids to put away childish things and become heroes. The author did a great job keeping them kids while they faced this evil journey. Though they matured they still had teenager moments. Allie had to be my favorite at moments she was real and predictable. Gemma was harder to figure out. I’m still holding out judgment for the guys. In the story the author gives you a taste of what this series could evolve into. The possibilities are endless. I’m excited to see where the author leads us on this mystical adventure.

Four Stars

I dislike parents that don’t know when to let their children go. To let them live and make their own mistakes. Tell them about the dangers in the world but let them choose the path. This story was really long winded. I say that because it took a lot of words to get the point and message across. Orlagh was a brat. I can’t believe she was “in love” after so little time. Then to do what she did to her grandfather! OMG! She made my brain hurt. But I do give her props for sticking to her faith that it was love and that she finding herself. It’s hard to put yourself into the mind of any person in the time that this book was set. To think that you only have so many choices of what you can do or become. Overall I enjoyed the magical and mystical parts of this story the most. I’ve always felt that there is more around us than we can see.

Happily. Ever After? An Italian Relationship (The Italian Saga Book 6) by Gaia B. Amman

Four Stars

Dang! I can’t believe what I just read. I’ve never been in a relationship like Leda and Sergio’s. The minute a man starts acting like Sergio did I was out. But I’ve also only been in love one time. I married my best friend and he broke my heart. It’s been almost three years and no relationship. So I’m more like Leda’s mom in this story. I can understand and feel her grief and depression. I’ve not met a lot of women who have been in abusive relationships. But I have learned from reading their stories that it’s the fear and the brainwashing that makes them stay. Maybe not all cases but some. For years you have some telling you what you can and can’t do. It starts to sound right. The story was so emotional and selfish. By nature we are selfish creatures. But there is something in us that compels us to be kind to others. Sergio was selfish and destructive. His need to fix himself through Leda was damaging them both. I also thought that Leda was selfish when she refused to make more time. You goals and dreams are important but you can’t claim to love someone if your consistently putting them last. They both need to grow and work on who they are and who they want to be. Overall the story was crazy. The highs and lows just had me overwhelmed.

Back in the Ring The Predator Series Book Four By Brooke May

Five Stars

Life is a big bag of crazy. One minute your living your dream and the next pieces of that dream are taken away. I dislike tragedy even though we all face it. It is never a easy pill to swallow. I give every man and woman props for pulling it together either for their kids or themselves. Bijou is determined and strong willed. She knows that her center is needed in her town but can’t seem to get the funds. When life is throwing her signs to sale a saving grace is what she finds in Noah. I absolutely love Noah. The whole story was told in Bijou’s point of view but when Noah was present I would’ve liked his thought. They had a nice chemistry and it helped that they both had kids. The author gave us something real with these characters because honestly it could be anyone’s life.

I’ve finally read this story. I’ve been putting it off because the first book was really emotional. This one didn’t disappoint. I actually had tears come down my face as I read this story. So much love in one group. So much hope and faith. Mikaela is a very strong woman. She stood by Matt through everything never giving up or losing faith. Life is full of surprises and unfortunate events. The author did a really great job laying this story out and building up your possibilities. Almost made me wish that life really worked like they do in books.

Dancing Queen By Charlotte Roth

Four Stars

I like fun books where people build themselves up. This story start off wrong for me. The fact that they thought it was ok to nominate someone to get help because of their weight was mean and judgmental. The lady could have a medical issue that causes her to be heavy. It could be anything. But the story does have a ok message. Be who you wish to be. Dance even when someone is watching. Build your confidence so high that even the most vile person couldn’t bring you down. Fiona was strong in many ways and you could feel her emotions when it came to her insecurities. I dislike how it’s mostly your family tearing you down instead of building you up. The book was fun and sassy and made me have a little hope that dreams can come true you just have to have the right people in your corner.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Immortal Desires: An Anthology of Paranormal Romance Novels

Five Stars

I love all things Paranormal. All things forbidden too. Nothing like living for a little trouble. This box set is a mix of different things immortal not just vampires and werewolves. We have the immortal life of purgatory. Where once you pass you get to sit in this place were all wants become reality. Author Jennifer Theriot as written a funny ado to death. Where you get to meet some interesting characters and have a laugh at what you may experience in the afterlife. The other books were very intriguing as well. I really liked the way the authors brought their unique styles together.

Surviving Valencia by Holly Tierney-Bedord

Four Star

Madness is something that comes up out of nowhere. One moment you’re fine the next things just don’t look good. Valencia’s story was told in a way that almost didn’t make sense but you keep reading because your confused and want to know what is going on. I didn’t like the flow of the story almost like we were stuttering. There were some funny parts that made me smile. Overall it was ok. I gave it four stars because of Valencia. She was odd but thoughtful. She was just going through life with no real path until she needed a change and made that change. She is a different person by the end of the story.
