Forget Nico by Gaia B. Amman was a really good novel. It grabbed me, but it did take a little bit to hold my attention. I’m sure it’s just because the ages of the characters, but all the characters seemed very whiny to me. Great characters though! Well mostly great, minus the cheaters. They all had big personalities, which I loved! This is the second novel I’ve read from the Amman and I can’t wait to read more from the Italian series!
Black Cat Security by Katerina Ross was a decent story. It’s a very short, fantasy story, that grabbed my attention but had to work to keep it. The story wasn’t what I was expecting from reading the synopsis, and the ending was a little strange for my tastes. It wasn’t a bad novella though! It just wasn’t my favorite. The story was very well written, I just didn’t have much background information to go on. I’m not sure if it was a continuation of a series, or what. I liked the story, just again it wasn’t personally for me. Four stars for writing, because the writing was incredible.
Mountains Loved by Phoebe Alexander was great! It was the perfect end to this trilogy series. Like the other two, this book grabbed in from the beginning and wouldn’t let go. I couldn’t tell if this novel was more emotional than the second in the series, but all the emotions are definitely in this one! It had me laughing and crying just like the second one did. And again, I highly recommend this third book in the Mountains Series!
Mountains Wanted By Phoebe Alexander is a book that is not your average romance novel. I am not familiar with Alexander’s writing style so i was a little surprised when i realized this book delves in to some emotional subjects. like open marriages (relationships) . I have to say that this genre of book, polyamory/ open marriage is not a style i enjoy reading even with that this book had great writing and some great character development. The story itself is full of heart and emotion and Phoebe Alexander writes in a way where yo feel like you know these characters personally. That is what kept m reading this book.
Moonlit Mirage by Amy McKinley was a really good novella! Super quick, easy read, it has the suspense, drama, slight mystery and romance that makes for a great classic. I read this book in a matter of a few hours, but it felt much longer by how I got pulled into the story and was experiencing everything that Cade and Nadia was experiencing. There was some surprising twists I didn’t expect, and it just made the story that much better. Great storyline and plot, and I loved the location chosen for the book! It doesn’t get much better when you have a great story set in the beautiful scenes of an island. This is story for all ages, and I highly recommend!
Despite the book being on the shorter side, I enjoy very long books. It feels like you’ve been through a long journey and understand more about the many worlds introduced in this book. James does a great job intertwining the Characters and worlds together even though initially they all seem different. James has a great writing style that’s complex but easy to follow and understand. I’d be very interested to read more from James as I enjoyed his style writing of this book.
I loved dynamic between Holly and Levi. And the characters are set up beautifully. Holly heads home after an illness ends her music career early and seeing Levi again reminds her of their past…and her feelings. Feelings she tries to put on the back burner while she tries to fix her relationship with her sister Susan and Susan’s husband Steve. But those feelings along with family secrets cannot be hidden…or ignored. The family dynamic in this book is amazing!! It’s well written, well thought out, and fantastically full of feelings. A first by this author for me, but definitely not the last!!!
Jake Wolfe Series Bundle Box Set: (Books 1-2-3) Vigilante Justice Thriller Series by Mark Nolan – Review by Gail Guerrero
These books were too good to put down. Every page was full of something intriguing. The characters alone made the story good. There is so much you learn about Jake. The author really throws it all together in a beautiful package. I didn’t know if I would like these stories. The author surprised me with how well they were written and how he kept it interesting and not too detailed. I felt like every book gave you so much more than what you expected. Jake is an all around good guy with a lot of bad boy in him. I read these books in one sitting because I was that invested and involved. I was grabbed by the throat and hog tied to these stories. We all get tired and ready to settle down. So when Jake decided to be a better person life got in the way. The mystery and adventure aspects were my favorite. I couldn’t really guess who was doing what. I also liked that the author gave Jake humor. Overall I 100% advise you to get these books.
Jules is a specialist who is dedicated to her work and is pretty much a workaholic. She’s had a lot of rocky moments over the years, and the rockiest being the recent passing of her mother. She has been no stranger to loss over the years and because of it, she keeps to herself and works hard to keep balance in her life. Her love of science has fueled her compassion to doing the right thing and helping wherever she can. For her, coming up with various healing antidotes, vaccines, and even new ways to fight biowarfare is everything. But when someone decides to knock her around and trigger memories she’s hidden, her world rocks again.
Trev is a military man who loves his career choice. He is dedicated to helping others, protecting them and fighting the good fight in every way he can. After all, once a Seal, always a Seal. For him, being apart of the Grey Ghost team means being with his family. The men and women he works with sharing the same values, protect at all costs. He’s always been the go-to guy for laughter, faithfulness, and loyalty. He learned the hard way that sometimes you have to open up and let others in. For him, being a chameleon of sorts, coming up with various ways to figure a situation out is everything. When he’s asked to take a special assignment, he didn’t expect it to be hers.
Together they have to figure out who wants to disrupt Jules’ life, hunt down a suspect in a possible terrorist scenario, play dodge and weave to figure out who really has it out to destroy many lives and finally, figure out where their attraction is headed. In the end, the twists are quick, the steam palpable and the mystery seems to never stop! I can surely say I had my suspicions on a few of the twists but when it all ended, it was like, holy cow! It was such a good mix of intrigue, intelligence, sexy hot moments and thrilling suspense. This was such a good book for me, I ended up binge-reading it and putting off sleep. I loved Jules and Trev!
The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is
by Jacquie Biggar
This story was such a sweet, heartwarming, romantic story that I wanted to read in one night. Holly is going home for the holidays and with that comes a lot of unresolved issues with her family, her sister, and Levi. Holly also has something important about her health to tell her family. I loved the characters and the different dynamics they bring to the story with their different personalities. Holly and Levi had a one night stand but neither have forgotten about that night. This book is about forgiveness, healing and family being there for each other. I love the way this author weaves a story that touches my heart. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
