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.

Reigning Hearts: The Complete Series (Books 1-5) by KG Fletcher – Review by Jenique Bornman

Reigning Hearts: The Complete Series (Books 1-5)Reigning Hearts: The Complete Series by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was introduced to this series through the audio books.

I listened to the first 3 and then I was waiting for the next books to be released in audio.
But then I was so excited to see all 5 books in one, I just had to get it.

Here are some thoughts on the books

Book 1
K.G Fletcher’s writing has this way to transport you into the here and now of what the characters are experiencing.
Em and Cappy are two characters that I couldn’t find one fault in. I absolutely adored their friends to lovers story especially because it’s a few years later and they still had this spark between them. It makes you believe that love does last.

Two broken hearts, ripped apart their loved ones. They come together and help each other cope with their loss….. with this heartwrenching romance, it gave me all the feels and I couldn’t stop listening. The storyline was amazing and these characters where even better then the first book in the series.
Ps. the little twist mmmmm……

Book 3
It just goes to show you, the saying “never judge a book by its cover” is so true. In this case it’s a character.
When K.G. Fletcher introduced us to Fiona in the first installment of the Reigning Hearts series, as Thomas Capshaw’s girlfriend, I absolutely hated her. BUT when I started listening to A Sun So Bright the depths of Fiona’s character was revealed and I fell in love with her.
Chris on the other hand….. INSTA-LOVE
This was again a superb book in the Reigning Hearts series and as the series develops so does K.G. Fletcher’s writing.

And then Book 4 & 5….. WOW they are the best yet in the series.

This is an absolute steal for all 5

Shamrock & Clover: Field’s Apart by C.A. King – Review by Jenique Bornman

Shamrock & Clover: Fields ApartShamrock & Clover: Fields Apart by C.A. King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With South Africa heading towards winter, this is the perfect “cosy next to the fire” read. It’s short and sweet and was exactly the fun lighthearted read I needed after all the dark stuff I’ve read.
The characters are superbly written and the really grow through out the book especially Patrick. His personal growth and emotional maturing really resonates with me.
A great book yet again from this talented author

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I haven’t read a YA book in a while and this book was the perfect palette cleanser after all the sad books I’ve read lately.
Abby Hill with her spooky talent gave me a thrilling read with an amazing never been written (that I know of) storyline.
The author did a superb job with the balance between spooky and YA.
It’s the first book I’ve read by this author bit definitely not the last. (Just clicked following)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m blown away by Mr. Talisman’s ability to create a world and characters that are out of this world. (Pun intended) hehe. The name of the book says it all. You will be taken on a JOURNEY, THROUGH TIMESPACE with these wonderfully unique and exciting characters. You have to read all of it to completely understand the complexity of this magical world that James has created. And now you can with the 3 books in one collection!!!

A Hundred Wishes (Band of Sisters)A Hundred Wishes by Marianne Rice
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is exactly the kind of book that I LOVE!! The kind where you get so frustrated with the characters because they can’t see what is right in front of them. You just want to scream at them.
The author really takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. She had my laughing out loud at times, screaming in frustration and ofcourse bawling my eyes out.

If you want to read something that captivates every single emotion you have, read this

Apocalypse ThoughtsApocalypse Thoughts by Kendra Griffin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know a book is worth every penny when you wake up in the middle of the night just to read one more chapter, or hide out in the bathroom to read just one more chapter. That’s exactly what this book did to me. Every spare moment I had I was reading this.
And with the way these characters are superbly written no one could say differently.
If I had them at my side I would say “bring on the end of the world as we know it”

Blindsided: A Contemporary Sports RomanceBlindsided: A Contemporary Sports Romance by T. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blindsided!!! The perfect title for this book.
After being glued to this book for the last 2 days, I’m not sure how to put into words how amazing it is.
The author took us on a journey, from the first words I read I fell in love with this author. Her talent for character building is out of this world. Each character was needed in this book and just elevated the storyline.
This book isn’t your normal run of the mil “boy next door”, “enemies to lovers” or even “bully romance”. It’s like all these genre’s went and had a genre baby all mixed together.
Absolutely 100% worth the read.
