5-Stars

Not So Far (Love Grows Series Book 3) by Renee Regent was an excellent read! I finished this book in one sitting and could not put it down. Silas returns to Atlanta following the deathbed his grandfather. He and his cousin are dealing with the old farm. He takes a stroll down memory lane and meets his past love. Audrey is a recent widow and mother to three children. She has had an easy life spent with a husband who has cared for her but not in the way she desired. She craves passion and desires what she had in the past with Silas. She also has a secret that she hasn’t shared until recently. Can the two find common ground and rekindle the fire?

I loved Silas and Audrey. Audrey was spunky for such a southern lady. Silas was sweet, romantic, and definitely not the boy she used to know. Audrey’s secret had me at the edge of my seat for a bit. I had so many emotions while reading this book! It was amazing and pulled at my heart strings. I easily give it 5 stars and can’t wait to read more in this series. I highly recommend it!

5-stars

Tangled Fates (Tangled Magic Series: Book 2) by Denise D. Young was an exciting read. I loved the various types of magical beings and realms featured in this book. Having only read this book on the series, I can say that it can be read out of order from the first book. The author revisits briefly what happened but not in so much detail to where I don’t want to go back and read it. The characters were fun, interesting, and believable. The love that ignites between Vi and Aiden was beautiful. The two fit together perfectly and I loved that Aiden was a fox! I can’t wait to read more in this series and easily give it 5-Stars.

Humiliating Revenge: Contemporary Young Adult Romance by T. Christensen – Review by Madison Degraffenreid

Humiliating Revenge: Contemporary Young Adult Romance by T. Christensen

5-Stars

Humiliating Revenge: Contemporary Young Adult Romance by T. Christensen was so much more than I expected. Main character Olivia is ready to let go of her past with Calum until he shows up at the bar she is working at. He uses this opportunity to seek revenge but instead of it stopping there, secrets begin to surface and there is confusion. Is Olivia really the batch everyone thinks she is, or did Calum actually see the real person beneath the façade?

I was in tears at times while reading this book. I hurt for Olivia and what she struggled with. Her secret was huge and the life she grew up loving with her dad? Wow. I was so angry, sad, and frustrated at times but she was selfless. Calum irritated me at the start of the novel but as time went on my opinion changed. By the end of this book I was in love with them! I also might mention that I read this in one sitting. It wasn’t planned but when I started this book; I couldn’t stop. I highly recommend this novel.

4-stars

Be Brave with Me (Finding Love in Green Springs Book 1) by CA Miconi was a sweet romance. I was curious about main character Meg after the opening of the book. I wanted to know what happened and what has caused her to run. I got my answer later on. I loved how she began to change in the small town of Green Springs. Drew was also a fascinating character and I loved his personality. He understood Meg immediately after meeting her. He too had been through tragedy and it changed him. Seeing the two interact as they did was beautiful. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology

4-Stars

Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology was full of interesting stories providing a retelling of the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. Each story had a different twist and I enjoyed how the two were depicted differently. The stories include romance, fantasy, and horror versions. A few easily caught my attention while some took me a couple of pages. My favorite story in the anthology is “The Dragon and The Phoenix” by Rachel Pudsey. I enjoyed the characters in this short story and also the creativity. This book was enjoyable and entertaining. I recommend it.

SPOUSE TRAP: Madeline Dawkins Mysteries (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 1) by Cynthia Hamilton

4-Stars

SPOUSE TRAP: Madeline Dawkins Mysteries (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 1) by Cynthia Hamilton was an intriguing and exciting read. Madeline is accused of cheating when her husband shares pictures of her having a so called affair. Madeline claims something fishy occurred and that she did not. So much more was behind what really happened.

I felt that the story easily pulled me in as a reader with the opening scene. Madeline was overwhelmed and trying to figure out what was going on. This scene easily transitioned into her trying to figure it out. I was amazed with her character and the development she experienced as the story progressed. It was easily enjoyable and realistic. Great read!

5-Stars

Finding Leda; the Science of Happiness (Italian College Novel 1, The Italian Saga) by Gaia B Amman was an excellent book! I thoroughly enjoyed following Leda as she moved into her years in college. It took ne back to my own college days! I loved seeing g her character blossom in this novel after so much happened with her in the last. I felt that she discovered more about herself than she realized was there in this book. I also found the description of college during that time fascinating. I remember my mom taking classes along a similar schedule but things are so different these days on college campuses. Leda truly is amazing and I absolutely love her character. This is easily a 5-star novel.
