    Passion Rising Review 5 Stars Huss-McClain

    Passion Rising by J.A. Huss My rating: 5 of 5 stars #MaddieandTylerForever #OptionB #turnthepage #igowhereyougo Bravo Huss McClain. This series is one of the few I’ve ever read with a male and female writing team. It is seamless prose. From the start, the books read like a new voice.  The newness included characters spellbinding in their beauty and tragic in misery.  They pushed through every sad day, looking for something positive.  Their cataclysmic union was searing in its intensity and devastating with its loss.  And yet, there was hope. Passion Rising took an emotional toll on me, but that’s the point of a love story.   Even so, I smiled through my tears.  Though Tyler…

    Flesh into Fire Review 5 Stars

    The story of Maddie and Tyler has been a satisfying journey.  I laughed, cried, and wanted more.  Lucky for me the story’s not over folks, the last book is coming, and I can’t wait to see #whatthehellisgoingon To appreciate the rise of the Phoenix that is the combined spirit of both star-crossed lovers is to backtrack a little. Maddie and Tyler started out as two lost souls, separate and apart, Tyler with PTSD, and Maddie unable to recover from the loss of a sibling and no one with whom to share her grief. Added to Maddie’s troubles are financial failures.  Both business ventures started out quite sound, but something went…

    Review: Angels Fall by Huss-McClain

    #whatthehellisgoingon #sometimesangelsfall He #needs #redemption she #needs #salvation #allyouneedislove Maddie doesn’t want anyone’s help, but she needs it. Her stubbornness is a recipe for disaster. Tyler needs a purpose, and her name is Maddie. Despite their tragic beginnings, Tyler knows he can turn things around. All he has to do is convince her. The Huss McClain team created an adorably stubborn heroine in Maddie. The red hair and fiery temper are in direct contrast to the empathetic nature of her soul. Maddie is a conundrum of good and evil in one beautiful woman. Despite his wealth, Tyler is a down-to-earth military guy with PTSD and an imaginary relationship with James…

    Sin With Me Review and Giveaway

    #sogoodicouldnotputitdown #icried #ismiled #ihopedfortheirhappiness The book took me a few days to collect my thoughts. Two lost and broken souls met and wordlessly fed off each other’s needs. Their connection was palpable. Maddie just couldn’t get a break. Every time she made a step forward to get out of the financial and emotional pit she was in, something dragged her back down. Tyler just existed with no purpose other than trying to get through another day, battling through a fog of prescription drugs and alcohol. The first time they met, a sliver of hope cut through their fog. Maddie did something for him she never did for anyone else. She…

    White Knight by CD REISS Review

    4.5 Stars #secondchance #tendermoments #trueloveneverdies #artistrywithwords If you’ve read King of Code, you’ll remember Harper. She had a sister, Catherine, the quirky spinster-do-gooder. White Knight is her love story. It was a fusion of all the good parts of a second chance romance and The Notebook. Chris returned home to bury his pet, Lancelot. He hadn’t seen Catherine for thirteen years. He wasn’t going to waste the opportunity to see her now. The years hadn’t been kind to the secret childhood sweethearts. Chris left to get an education, and she stayed behind due to tragic circumstances. It didn’t have to be that way. Both relive the hurt and mourn the…

    Sin With Me by Huss McClain

    #sogoodicouldnotputitdown #icried #ismiled #ihopedfortheirhappiness I just loved it. I got caught *feeling* the story more than *thinking* the story. The book took me a few days to collect my thoughts. Two lost and broken souls met and wordlessly fed off each other’s needs. Their connection was palpable. Maddie just couldn’t get a break. Every time she made a step forward to get out of the financial and emotional pit she was in, something dragged her back down.

    Review BLAI2E: Part 2 – Anita Gray

    There are only a handful of characters that I’d cry for, Blaire is one of them. In Blaire, Anita Gray wrote a compelling character. In Part 1, Blaire was an innocent, robotic-like, trained-killer.  She seemed a shell-shocked, Stockholm-syndrome survivor, raised emotionally stunted. When she was treated with kindness and regard by Charlie, she began to feel emotion, and that’s when her pain started.  Her background is mysterious and had nefarious beginnings. She has no memories. The book ended on a cliffhanger. My review of Part 1 here.   In Part 2, Not only does Blaire wake up in physical pain, then the ravages of emotional distress eat her up alive. Blaire made…

    Enthrall Climax by Vanessa Fewings

    Damsels in distress, badass bitches, anti-hero, and bi-on-the-side, the hero saves the day 5 Stars!!!  Climax, the final installment of Enthrall was an exciting read. It had a very satisfying ending to a fabulous series that I have read at least twice. Our star-crossed lovers had to avert booby traps and dodge monkey-wrenches. There were betrayals and misplaced concerns. I practically flew through the book. Just when I thought some hurdles resolved, more popped up. The odds were against the couple reaching the altar. At one critical point, their plight reminded me of an unwinnable wack-a-mole game. The cast spanned three continents. There were damsels in distress and bad-news-bitches, an…

    Review: CJ Thomas Black Obsession

    Black Obsession by C.J. Thomas My rating: 4 of 5 stars I awaited CJ’s third book in the Kelly Black Series, with anticipation, the first two got me hooked, and Obsession didn’t disappoint. The things I like about CJ’s writing are characters; she makes you care about them; the stories have good suspense and romance, and she’s good at cliffhangers. Obsession includes the usual suspects, Kendra, Madam, Kendra’s friend/roommate Alex, and of course, the prime suspect in a murder case, Nash Brooks. At the end of the last book, Kelly was arrested for assault and Kendra was beside herself. He was released, though he wasn’t so concerned about the arrest…
