This was such a thrill ride for me, so many dots to connect, as well as to figure out. The book takes off very quickly and often leaves you breathless. I was amazed and wowed as I read.

Amazing writing with the story development!

A book that really keeps you engaged. It was not short, of well anything. I was left wanting more! I loved it truly! I highly recommend this amazing book, as well as the must read author!

I love this author, for all they create and do, I am never disappointed by this work by any means. This one was powerful, deep and full of emotion! I could not put it down!

A person can truly endure a life time of pain, and suffering, and still be standing even though how hard it is most days. I loved Annika as well. They both had endured a lot and deserved peace. Loved their moments together. Loved the authors writing and how they brought the story to life! Loved it!

Taming Beckett (The Playmakers, #1)Taming Beckett by G.K. Brady
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great book in a new series, by a most amazing author! I could not put this one down, as I was held tightly with the characters, and what they faced, who they were and who they became, it was a good book!

Paige and Beckett-needed each other, in more than one way! They had to rely on one another at first glance, to help achieve goals. Character building was spot on. Chemistry was hot, hot, and did I mention hot? I loved how differences aside, a great team was made, but even off the ice, hearts can melt with the right amount of bliss. Both of them had troubles, be it past trust or habits in general, loved how they pushed thru those fear and issues to really see what they had going on between them. I love sports reads, and this one really amazed me. Good build not too fast and not too slow! Perfect! Loved it!

Such a good read, and highly must say, if you have not picked this wonderful book as of yet, up, you seriously must! The author also had amazing writing skill! Highly recommend this must read book/author!

Reckless Heart (Second Chance Romance Series Book 2) by Jane Suen – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Reckless Heart (Second Chance Romance #2)Reckless Heart by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This author is truly gifted, in all that they do and create. I loved this first book in this series, and this one was no different. I loved the connection ties to the previous installment. This truly was an impacting, good read.

The book was deep with feeling. Powerful with emotions and tangles of the heart. Mary and Brad were two souls with connections from the previous books, and I was rooting for them. Mary was carefree, but full of life and heart. Brad, had a troubled past, but wanted something he felt he could not reach. Pain of the past intercepts and causes walls, but to embrace a future, they must work through those feelings of the past and think about what the now and future could be, if they trust each other as well as themselves, if they let it. Beautiful writing. Great character depth as well as development. Of course the author has a way with the words they write and create. Emotional and powerful. A great read. I loved it all, truly!

This book was such a joy to read, and as well to get lost in. I really love the writing that this author does in all of their books. Highly recommend this must read book. series, and author! All are a joy to read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a good read, kept me interested, great characters, and a sweet story! Perfect for this time of year I must say! I very much enjoyed it, I was very much invested in the hopes and dreams of the characters!

Christmas, Romance, and Achieving a future…how could I not love it. I loved Connor and Sienna. Both have that instant chemistry, but she wants to take the Gold medal. Connor has fear holding him back. I loved how things were not instant, they had to find common ground, not just with their future goals, but a chance at igniting this spark into a flame. The book was a quick read, but full of impact. You are never too late in life to achieve your goals. Loved this holiday read, and honestly you will too! It will melt your heart!

Wonderful romance and powerful read. It is impossible not to love the author or how they use their writing skill! Easy to dive in and follow! Fun read and get you into the holiday spirit! Highly recommend!

Murder on oak streetMurder on oak street by I. M. Foster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book, to say it was good, would by far be an understatement! I was amazed and full of intrigue as I read. I was left in suspense, I loved the author’s way of writing, and the historical mystery that took place.

I love mysteries. I grew up swearing I was going to be the next Sherlock Holmes SO of course this book greatly appealed to me. The more I dived in, the more I wanted to know. A mystery that even I could not put together-and I am quite good at those things. I was intrigued all the way through. I enjoyed the build up of the story very well and could not get enough. Great characters and suspenseful writing. Nothing was what it seemed. I found the read thrilling, and cannot wait for book 2! Freaking loved it!

Wonderful read, and not one to be passed up for any reason. Seriously! A must read book and author! Needless to say this is a high recommendation from me, if not a high priority to be read book and author!

I loved this book with a passion! I could not get enough! There was so much intrigue, characters with great development, and of course a plot that sucked you in completely!

I am a sucker for mysteries, but throw in an potentially cursed item…you truly have me hooked! The book took off at a great build. I enjoyed how nothing was rushed, but yet was not too slow! I loved how Jorja had to really use her skill…deaths and more deaths. How were they connected? How can she make sense of it all? As the story went on, I was wanting more. The more I read, the more entertainment and intrigue I got. Loved it! I will definitely read more by this author-definitely hooked upon first read or should I say artifact?

Great author! Great read! And exceptional writing! I could not get enough, I was hooked all the way through, I very much enjoyed this book. And for sure, I highly recommend this book and author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book really took off very quickly. It was just as good, maybe even better than the first book in the series! I was amazed with the story, characters, and the writing all the way through!

The story was realistic beyond means. I reflected so much as I read. It was a powerful read none the less to say the least! I enjoyed the book that took place after a time line of the first. I did not expect the epicness to be as extreme as it was! Death is all around the world, can the world be saved? The book was paranormal , yes, but how vivid it was made me fear what our world could become! Freaking amazing read!

If you have not read the first book, please do it right this minute. Do not walk-RUN!!! The author is amazing, and this story is not to be missed, the first book helps all make sense. Highly recommend this must read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story really swept you away at the very part of the reading! I was pulled in with the plot, the characters, as well as the enchanting stories that come together and made this beautiful book!

Raine and Will were amazing characters. Both are different minded, but still strong separate, but even more stronger even when they were together. Both were compelling characters with strong characteristics! Loved the paranormal aspect of the story, the danger, the action, etc. Sometimes what haunts our nightmares or is looming in the shadows or the darkness is not that far from home, I loved how I read this book, I questioned things I take for granted every day with thoughts, The story was exciting and sensational!

I could not help myself other than to love this book by such a wonderful author! I swear every book that this author creates and writes, sucks me in completely! I felt so much happy feelings as I read this book!

As Cupid, and with mistakes and mis haps, I really loved Malayeka! She had tried and caused her explosions in past jobs she was assigned. She had a good heart, and always tried her best! Though, her methods proved otherwise. I love this quirky book. It was a literal laugh out loud book with a lot of love. Loved the characters Billie and Leo. Great character development, and I loved even though when odds are against you, you keep trying even though you may tumble and fall! Loved this rom com full of heart!

I love this author always, but this book alone made my heart so very happy. It pulled me in right from the start, and held me all the way through! Highly recommend this must read book and author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a new author for me, and I must say I was very much pulled in all the way through with this book, and the story. I was left stunned often and wanted more as I read! It was easy to be immersed!

A great thrill of a mystery! I was immersed and intrigued all the way, I loved how 3 different stories, became one with this mystery that was a foot. Every bit of info proved to be crucial to the story. You could take anything for granted. So much can happen in one night and this book proves that. I loved the writing style, and how the story flowed and came together. I loved the characters and how they changed as things went on. The author weaved together a story of interest and intrigue! Great read! Loved it!

And Then She Fell by Dreena Collins – Review by Lorrene Huisman

And Then She FellAnd Then She Fell by Dreena Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a must read for sure, one that could not be put down for any reason! It gripped me, and held me at a stand still, I constantly wanted to know more to reach the truth! Outstanding writing!

Nothing can compare to a mother’s quest for the truth. Especially when she believes that what she has been told is wrong compared to what she thinks.. A mother will do anything for her daughter, even in death, that is certain. As a reader, I was at Catherine’s side trying to seek out the truth referring to Susie. The more answers we got, the more things built up and questions came to light. I was constantly trying to figure out the truth, only to hit a wall each and every time. Catherine wanted the truth, she was a very admirable character. Everything leads up to the shocking end, which I must say I was not prepared for, and it was jaw dropping! The character development was done with excellent writing. Great build up of suspense. And a story that is woven that makes you guess as the pages turn. An amazing read and impossible to put down! Loved it!

Such a good book with such good writing. Very impressed with this author for me! I cannot wait to read more works by them! Highly recommend this must read thriller book and author! Do not pass up!!!

Kiss Away Your Pain (Wounded Hearts Series Book 2) by Debbie Cromack – Review by Lorrene Huisman

Kiss Away Your Pain (Wounded Hearts, #2)Kiss Away Your Pain by Debbie Cromack
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love this author for all she does and creates! She truly has the power to grip her readers, and hold them there, and take on a ride, often of self discovery, emotions, and most importantly, love.

I loved the previous book, so I was happy to see the certain characters appear in this one that were in the previous. Candi and Enzo were a match made in heaven, if they could work through the pain of the past, that was with their future. Both had gone through something rather horrible when it comes to true love. I had a lot of ups and downs in true love myself, as my now husband, we had to work thru a lot of pain to be together, so hence why this book and the characters spoke to me so much. I cried, and I smiled throughout my reading. The book was beautiful. The book really makes clear sometimes life gives you that second chance, but it you, that has to take the leap of faith! I was star struck with this book and author!

Such a beautiful and empowering read. Not one to be passed up! Even if you had not read the previous books, you must read this one! Your heart will thank you! Highly recommend this book/series/author!

National Parks: An Angsty Second Chance Multicultural Romance by Laikyn Meng – Review By Lorrene Huisman

National ParksNational Parks by Laikyn Meng
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a deep read for me. Realistic, and truly felt everything. As I am someone who struggles with my own demons and mental health every day, this book really pulled me in. Tears certainly fell.

The book was moving. The love between Phoebe and Kenzo was true and real. I felt a lot for Phoebe and how she was brought up. But with Kenzo by her side, it made life happier none the less. I related to Kenzo as well. Both had issues, and battles, in different forms. Being together, not only made things easier, but stronger together. To me the writing was beautiful, enjoyed the writing and the setting as well. I was deeply pulled in and mesmerized all the way through. It was very much at times, but it made it the joy it was. The emotions and the love you feel, go hand hand in hand, and make you see the beauty of the story.

This is a book I will continue to highly recommend to others. Even if you did not have a difficult upbringing, you can reward yourself, by understanding by those that didn’t. Defiantly a must read book and author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book and the characters that it contained. It was written with so much intelligence, and quirky moments, that everything I read came together so well! It was impossible not to love this book!

As I am a huge literature fan, of course the character Juliet, spoke to me, Love Jim and his own personality and what it brought to the table! Their interactions were full of heat and chemistry, yes. But, as well sweet and heart felt moments. I laughed so much throughout the book. Their relationship on what it started and how it grew, really made it realistic. The writing skills of the author were very enchanting in the sense as well as they knew how to keep you interested and engaged! I very much loved this book!

This was a wonderful read, funny sweet, and a light read. I could not put it down once I began, as I wanted to keep on reading and see what would develop next! Highly recommend this must read book!

I Love You Today (Trading Heartbeats Trilogy Book 2) by Julie Navickas – Review by Lorrene Huisman

I Love You Today (The Trading Heartbeats Trilogy Book 2)I Love You Today by Julie Navickas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved the first book in the series. This one was as heart felt with every single emotion possible as well. The book has sweetness, heartache, love and the whole 9 yards. It was an amazing read!

I loved how this one took off where the previous book did. The ending of the first book brought a lot of feelings for me, so this one continues, really helped those feelings, and allowed new feelings to come to light. I was rooting all the way through for Austin and Casey. For me Austin was held dear to my heart (if you read the first book you get what I mean) Their story was sweet, yet facing dilemmas and that was very realistic to me. I loved Casey, (to be a bit selfish, I grew up in Chicago and greatly love my Wrigley field and the Cubs!) She was perfect for Austin, and she truly had the power to heal the past, Their story was beautiful yet stormy weather can come without notice. You make it through the storm together always. I was hooked. The story lines that came to light, loose ends that got tied, and common happiness and ground that was found. I very much am looking forward to the next book in the series. It was an emotional ride, in a good way! It was very much impossible not to love the characters, the story, and the author’s writing!

If you have not read the previous book, do it. It gives great back story of characters and emotions. This book really took my breath away. I simply loved it from start to finish! Amazing read and series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a new author for me, and I must say the writing was beyond exceptional. I could not get enough of the characters or story that was stitched together. Honestly, I was mesmerized all the way.

I had not read the previous books in the series, but I certainly am going to be going back to read the rest. This could be read as a stand alone, but I know I will appreciate reading the others. What I enjoyed very much was the strength of family and the characters. I felt for both Orlagh and Maelan. Both had different aspects and ways of life. Both wanted what was best for Orlagh (her grandfather and herself.) The story develops at a quick pace. I enjoyed the input of fae into the novel as well. I found the story full of engagement, and had its own spell on me, I was in suspense many times throughout my reading. I must add the author is fantastic at descriptive writing of the lands and what the characters see, You truly feel your looking through their eyes! Wonderful read, most definitely had its spell over me! I truly felt the heart of it!

Wonderful read that I wish I got to enjoy sooner than later. I will be sure going back to read the other books as well as more by this gifted author! Highly recommend this must read book/series/author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love this author truly, they never disappoint me in all they write and create. I was very much taken with this book, it was full of intrigue and strong female characters A book and series right up my alley!

Loved Tink and Noodles. Both had rough circumstances in the past, that have brought them to where they are in life. They were both strong leads. As well as that, they had very strong chemistry together. I loved what Tink stood for, she was in charge of a motorcycle group that helped women, from dangers they could come into, great cause I must say. All the members in this group, have been through the hardest of times, and are still standing. I loved the group for sure, but when you stand for the greater good, there are always others that want to bring you down, The book takes off really fast. A whirlwind kind of action and adventure. Was sucked in completely. Could not put it down! Exceptional reading by an amazing author! Loved it!

I loved this book with a passion, then again, its written by one of my favorite authors. I think it was a great start to a new series! I look forward to the next book! Highly recommend this must read book and author!

The Veil by Wanda Luthman – Review by Lorrene Huisman

The VeilThe Veil by Wanda Luthman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A story that speaks to you no matter what walk of life or path you are on. I enjoyed the author’s writing and the way the words and the story flowed. Beautiful and mesmerizing in its own way. Beautiful writing.

I am not Jewish, but many people dear to my heart are, so reading this what it is like for a boy to step into manhood is eye opening. The boy the story surrounds, who is going to man hood, learns of the things he must to become a man The ripping of the veil, was not something I had much knowledge on, but the story intrigued me, and made me want to understand more. I felt for Samuel, the boy the story is about, he became an understudy, and there, he would never return home, because of the path he is on now. I find that heart breaking, but yet even though he was chosen for it, perhaps it is a path he will grow to choose?
I really enjoyed this author and the story they created. Visually, my eyes as well as my heart are open more, and I want to know more. I will be doing my own research for sure in relation to events of this book, as I want to understand more now that I got a taste. SO glad I got to read this book, definitely an eye opener.

I did not know much about traditions and such of being Jewish, but reading this book really helped me embrace what I did not know. A must read for sure! Highly recommend this author. and their book!

I absolutely loved the book that was written prior to this one. I was hooked with this one just as much, maybe even more! The story is a thrill ride, and you never know what will happen next!

First off, I must say visually speaking the book was amazing. The fine details of art and places, really brought the story to life for me, and truly held me to the end. Of course Nick and his spouse were great characters as well. I love how as you read, the story builds, suspense, action, and hope re strong Nick is wanting to free those in need of help. (relation to the first book) and there is danger at every turn. I love the writing and how incredible this book is! Its a divine read, and seriously fantastic! Loved this one!

Wonderful follow up to the first book. This one had its own magic on me as the prior, I could not put it down. A must read for sure! Highly recommend this must read book, author and series!

This was such a wonderful read. I really connected with the characters I met and came to love. The story was sweet, but had a lot of festiveness that related to the holiday spirit! Wonderful read!

Personally loved Savannah and felt for her truly. A Christmas being spent alone is hard enough, but when you lose your soul mate, its even harder. Loved her personally. She gets a chance to find the holiday spirit still through an encounter, and to say the least, it is life changing. I loved her and Matthew. Sweet together m and the spirit of the holidays was certainly strong with them. It was as if this book had a magical spell over me. I felt so warm in my hear as I read it, and felt oh so happy. It was indeed a touching read. I very much enjoyed the author’s writing skills as well. Wonderful and perfect holiday read! Loved it!

This was such a perfect book, to bring forth the feeling associated with the holidays! The book was touching, strong and connecting characters, and a strong sense of the beautiful holiday spirit!

Carina was such a wonderful character, was very easily to connect to her. I think especially on how she endured the pandemic, and wanted nothing more than family time. It’s true though, with the pandemic we lost so many chances to be with loved ones, we need to embrace it now. I felt for Carina truly, trying to make plans and she was so full of festive spirit in her heart, and no one would budge for her. I found what she goes through, and comes out on top of, very sweet and touching. She grew her wings for sure, it was a beautiful read, touching, and perfect holiday read. Definitely a must read in my books Very much enjoyed it!

Such a sweet holiday story. Wonderful story and cast of characters. I think everyone grew in some shape or form, and established the meaning of the holidays. Highly recommend this must read book and author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was written so perfectly, could not have asked for more. With the aspect of WWII, you truly felt the emotions of the characters and what was going on. In truth, the book also had a lot of beauty!

I found the characters in this time travel story very captivating The love that was felt was very real to me and undeniable. The emotions were real, I felt I was time traveled myself to where the story is time traveled. This book showed me that in our darkest moments, we can find light. The main character who is the one time traveled, from a gift received from a decreased relative, learns. Admired Erin greatly. The interactions with her and the pilot, were beautiful and yet haunting. If you lived thru what Erin did, and learned and experienced what she did, would you give it all up to return to your life? It was a powerful read, and I could not put it down at all. When I reached the end, I must say I was unprepared. I really am hoping for a follow up book by this wonderful author! This book is an intense gem! Absolutely loved with all my soul!

I cannot say enough good things about this book or author. Definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year. Not kidding either! Highly recommend this must read book, as well as the author! Amazing read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This author has hooked me and intrigued me with every single book that they have created and brought to life! This book certainly intrigued me and kept me interested all the way through! Great read!

I loved the concept behind what Quinnlan had to do. A second chance to live. but 3 days to find someone you want to share life with. Definitely not the funnest task as there is a lot on the line, and even more if you do not succeed at the task at hand. Garret had his own task to do, and the two had a chance encounter, and as I strongly believe in my own life, it was fate. Garret was a great match I felt, when he learned what Quinnlan was tasked with, he didn’t cower in fear. The chemistry with them was undeniable for sure. I enjoyed the suspense, intrigue, romantic moments, and the other facts that surrounded the plot, as the story went deeper than you would think at first glance! Amazing writing and book! Truly loved it!

This author never disappoints me. I always devour anything that they write and create. This book certainly captivated me entirely! Loved it from start to finish! Highly recommend this must read book and author!

This author and book certainly had a wow factor going. I was impressed, immersed in the book, and held to the end. The writing was perfectly done as well as done with a intense force!

The book was woven together perfectly. I find there is a thin line behind love and revenge. When is enough, well enough? The book was a quick read for me, but I was deeply intrigued and immersed as I read. The anticipation to the ending was strong, with the two characters. I must say I was knocked out of my seat when the ending occurred. Did not see it coming. I enjoyed the writing and the descriptive use by this author, great read, that is quick to read, and where the author really gets the nail in with the hammer!

Amazing read that will suck you in and hold you there to the last word on the final page! Freaking amazing read. Needless to say, I highly recommend this author and novel! Definitely a must read for sure! Loved it!

The Sacrifice (Dragonpets Book 1) by R. L. S. Hoff – Review by Lorrene Huisman

The Sacrifice (Dragonpets #1)The Sacrifice by R.L.S. Hoff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I certainly was taken away with this new series. It was interesting and full of intrigue, and it had characters that you kept wanting more of! The read was a whirlwind, in a good way!

The book was complex compared to other fantasy novels I have read. The characters really made the story. I found the pace was well done, There is a lot going on, I found it helpful throughout my reading, to step back sometimes and think back on what was going on. Doing so helped everywhere come together well for me! I definitely enjoyed the author’s writing and new series. Will for sure be reading the next ones in the series. As I basically devoured this book, and kept wanting more! Exceptional read! Very much enjoyed it!

If you want a fantasy read that is different in a good way, and one that will suck you in completely, then look no further! Highly recommend this series, author, and of course this book!

The Fifth Daughter of Thorn Ranch by Julia Brewer Daily – Review by Lorrene Huisman

The Fifth Daughter of Thorn RanchThe Fifth Daughter of Thorn Ranch by Julia Brewer Daily
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved this author for all they create from a book I have read by them last year. Ever since I was hooked. This book hooked me just as much! The book had creativity, and screamed that wow factor!

The book was amazing as it was mysterious. I loved the feel I got as I read, you knew something was well not known at first glance with the ranch, but you didn’t have the clues just yet to decipher what it could be! I enjoyed Emma’s as a character as well! She was quite relatable. Sometimes what we think we want vs what people think we should want,….is not the case sometimes we value something no one, not even ourselves have thought of! I was very intrigued, and I wanted to learn the mystery, the author certainly kept me in suspense. When things came together I was more intrigued than ever! The author is amazing at capturing the reader as well as keeping you interested no matter what the story plot is. The book was a fantastic read. I do hope maybe for another installment down the line! Couldn’t get enough! Loved this book!

Amazing author that amazes my mind once again! I completely fell in love with this book and the writing. Defiantly a must read in my books! And most certainly a high recommendation from myself to you!
