Shadow Patterns of Melt by J. R. P. Fogg – Review by Lauren West

Shadow Patterns of Melt - Book OneShadow Patterns of Melt – Book One by J.R.P. Fogg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book Immensely and felt connected to the characters . The world the author created was vivid and bold. This was a science fiction story that was equally about the passion of science and life as well as about living your life as you choose and doing what you love.
Our main character exude confidence, intelligence, and a carefree spirit. Their modern day space voyage takes a turn as they experience some calculated issues. As they encounter the unexpected it becomes not just about them but the world as whole.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved every moment of this book. Peggy was Very real, raw, and flawed as any and all human beings can be. Losing her husband and raising her kids alone truly isolated and put her into a place where she felt she had no one and her survival mode was food, her children, and her home. She proved to be was an amazing character! Even though she got to a place in her life that made her unaware and complacent just trying to live….when she was given the opportunity to spread her wings again she did. She transformed that fear and place of sadness and became the remarkable woman she once was. Her goals were her own, and when she found a man who saw her and appreciated her that was the icing on the cake. Anyone can end up where Peggy did, but how many can rise again?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another spicy couple to add to the series! Ms. Black continues to increase excitement each book. Master Catteneo is in a class all his own. The chemistry with him and Alessia is through the roof! Stubborn and possessive all in one. When they come upon a situation that requires them to work together it’s where the sparks really fly!!

I loved this book. I both laughed and cried. There was a lot to this story. Friendships, love, honesty, angst, trust, and stability. It pulled at my heart strings when I see the MC finally find their happy place and yet all the questions surrounding it. I recommend this book highly!

Hot for Teacher - Shakespeare Made Us Fall in LoveHot for Teacher – Shakespeare Made Us Fall in Love by Felicia Carparelli
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

James and Juliet’s story was a cute one and a big reminder about love in least expected places. Juliet pulls at your heartstrings bc shes already loved and lost yet she still has an open heart to it. James is trying to explore new horizons. Both are parents, professionals, and have experienced a lot within life. There is a lot of push and pull with romance and humor mixed in. Opposites attract in this story and it was a fun read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was one of the most fun books I have read in awhile. A feel good story mixed with some mystery and humor. It gives off the feel of a small and quaint town with a lot of quirky townspeople.
Our main character Bob was relatable and lovable. Truly felt like an old friend. Watching his adventure unfold with his new career and his first mystery is quite the journey. This will be a book that you will not forget and definitely will have the author on your watch for what’s next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good sci-fi film that delves into the unexpected and unknown! Thomas and April are quite the duo and their adventures prove this unknown is nothing as was expected. It’s fun, vivid, and captures your interest from start to finish. The author did a great job of leading you in and peaking your interest. There is definitely more to tell and I am eager to be apart of it.

From Brick & Darkness by J.L. Sullivan – Review by Lauren West

From Brick & DarknessFrom Brick & Darkness by J.L. Sullivan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another young adult book that hits the spot. I loved this book from beginning to end, and it’s a message that everyone can relate to in someway.
Baxter went through the good and the bad like any kid does. Raised by a single mom and a dad who was no more than mystery he began to question the “what if.” From there A mysterious djinn, a bit of dark magic, adventure mixed with suspense, and some good friends take this story places you will not want to miss
