Glass HousesGlass Houses by Sinister Styx
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great short, powerful Novella. Really hits you with the feels right from the start.
The characters are great but I feel there could have been a little more character development that would definitely make this a 5 star read.

The storyline is great and there is really a lot of potential to make this a great Novella series that might be latter put into a box set. Just an idea

Unveiling Beulah Audiobook by Dana Wayne – Review by Jenique Bornman

Unveiling BeulahUnveiling Beulah by Dana Wayne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Historical Romance is fast becoming one of my favorite genre’s. And this exceptional listen definitely contributed to it.
Physically and emotionally scared Bea decides to go to Texas to pave her own path away from the New York social scene. There she meets this strapping (always wanted to use that word) gentleman, who unbeknownst to her also fled the New York society.
Together the heal each other’s scars.
What more could you ask from a love story!!! What made this such a great book was the amazing character development and the authors extraordinary writing style.

Perfect Read!!!!

Battling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother RomanceBattling Beckett: A Contemporary Step Brother Romance by T. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WHOOOOWHEEE That was one hell of a rollercoaster ride.
Enemies to lovers is one of my absolute favorite tropes but this book….. this was the best Enemies to Lovers I’ve read in a long time.
The author took me from highs to lows in seconds and the characters!!!
The emotional development of the characters is superbly written. The storyline with the little extra danger thrown into it was a perfect fit.
I also loved that the book didn’t immediately cut off after they got their HAE it went on and gave an extra little HEA.
Great read!! Highly recommended.

Ashes Audiobook (Modern-Day Fairy Tale Book 1) by MK Harkins – Review by Jenique Bornman

Ashes (Modern-Day Fairy Tale, #1)Ashes by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When an author does a fairytale retelling it can go wrong or like in this case it can go AMAZINGLY RIGHT.

This modern day retelling of Cinderella was done with respect to the original. The storyline took some twists from the original that just made this book even better then I thought it would be.

Be warned there is some heartwrenching parts that will make you ugly cry. But it’s totally worth it.

The Letter Carrier by L.C. Lewis – Review by Jenique Bornman

The Letter CarrierThe Letter Carrier by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first non romance book I’ve read in a VERY LONG time. And it is now in my top 5 reads for 2022.
The research, time and care that went into writing this book resonates through every line.
What was extra special about this book was that it’s a story not really told. We mostly hear about what the Jewish community went through during WWll, and easily forget that other countries were kept captives in their own homes. Michelle’s story is something really special and extremely eye opening. The way that her faith carried her through this trying time is something I will always remember.

This is a must read for any Historical Fiction Fan!!

Remember to Forget Me (Too Lost To Love, #1)Remember to Forget Me by Hazel Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading this book there’s NO WAY you’ll be able to say that you do not believe in kismet.
Two children meet by chance, then just when they admit they’re feelings to themselves BAM!! a brutal event rips them apart….. But luckily fate has a different plan for these two….
A chance meeting brings them face to face and then….. well you’ll just have to read it to find out.

This book should be turned into a movie!! It was absolutely amazing. The storyline is absolutely perfect and the characters are beautifully written.
Definitely on my top 10 list for 2022

Something About Aimee (Girls from the Street Book 1) by S.E. Smith – Review by Jenique Bornman

Something About Aimee (Girls from the Street Book 1)Something About Aimee by S.E. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a spur of the moment read… and boy was I surprised!!! I feel that the cover doesn’t really do this book justice. The story is superb and the characters are great especially Wheels aka Aimee. She’s a strong independent woman who saves the handsome prince, nit onc, but twice.. who saw that coming?

Excellent character building. My only critique is I would have loved to hear more about Aimee’s back story

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you’re looking for a fun short vacation read this book is perfect for you.

Great storyline, superb character development. I’m excited to read the next one.

Castor’s Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars Book 2) by Tai James – Review by Jenique Bornman

Castor's Kiss (Soul Bonded in the Stars # 2)Castor’s Kiss by Tai James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I absolutely love a strong, asskicking, take no prisoners FMC. Mia delivers, but not only that she also has a soft side. Even strong women need to be loved……that’s when we meet Castor, her soul mate.

The thing that I loved most about this book is the suspense. Everytime you think, okay now she’s saved BAM, something new and more terrible happens. Great second book from an amazing series.
