Noémie’s Journey AUDIO BOOK by Victoria Saccenti – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

I loved this story of Noemi and Richard. Richard wants to protect Noemi really pulls at my heart strings. Setting of a small town, the racism that Noemi had to deal with on a daily basis… I couldn’t possibly imagine. There are so many obstacles as Richard is white, while Noemi is not…and the story taking place in the 60’s with some rocky times for social equality. This story is heartbreaking at times and beautiful.

No Strings Attached by Lara Ward Cosio – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

No Strings AttachedNo Strings Attached by Lara Ward Cosio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Just LOVED this book!! The story of Kayla and Tanner. This book had moments of me laughing to smiling from ear to ear to my pulse racing!! Kayla is a single mom with a 4 year old little girl. She is so focused on raising Emerson while having a career of her own. A encounter at the local coffee shop, she meets Tanner. All Tanner can offer Kayla at this point is a little fun with no strings attached. Tanner has his own career while he is helping out his sister with his twin nephews while his brother in law is deployed. Things get a bit complex with Tanner and Kayla as they have this back and forth of no strings attached fun but then feelings come into play. Tie in more complexity when Kayla’s ex and Emerson’s father comes back trying to get a second chance with Kayla and raising Emerson.

I just loved this story. Sweet moments mixed with some hot moments and a sprinkle of complex feelings all wrapped into a great book!! Loved Tanner and Kayla’s story!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very good YA romance. Emme is a girl who recently had a breakup with a boy that cheated on her and has trust issues. When Emme takes a summer class she is paired up with Brendon Agretti, who is a senator’s son. Every girl wants to date Brendon, but as Emme and Brendon grow closer, Emme’s insecurity sets in. Brendon has this ex girlfriend who wont let go and Emme also has to deal with medical issues that her grandparents are going through. There is so much to this story that really takes you back to high school years. I truly believe we all have had these feelings of insecurities and crushes in high school at some point so it is very easy to relate to these characters. Well done Author Krysten Lindsay Hager!

A Natural PassionA Natural Passion by Tammy Mannersly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sweet contemporary romance with a little bit of mystery that I definitely enjoyed reading. The romance in the story involves 2 men that vie for Kyra’s affections. Dylan is a marine biologist and also I love how he was devoted to preserving the turtle nests at the beach and more mature. Jake, whom is the son of Dylan’s boss, is a bit more irresponsible. At first, Kyra’s attraction to Jake was undeniable, but she also feels more sparks with Dylan. The bit of mystery that happens is whom is raiding the turtle nests at the beach and taking the eggs for their own greed. I really loved this story and how it flowed all together. I loved this sweet romance.
