Sweet Romance - novel
TBR Reviewer: Brutally Honest
You know, with everything going haywire in life I wanted, no, needed some light and
uplifting. As soon as I read this blurb I had to read this book. ( Deborah Zimmerman’s life is not going well right now. She has to deal with a deadbeat dad, teenagers, financial stress, and a store manager’s glare. The cake that lands on her head isn’t helping any. When she bumps into Brandon Nash, her heart skips a beat. Could this be love at first
sight or the signs of a heart attack?)
Deb is so sweet but has some really crappy luck. Then she meets a hot sexy Brandon and
happens to drop the cake on them. I was laughing at several scenes in this books. There are one liners that will have you smiling like a fool. I usually find family stories in romance to be boring and intruvise on the romance. Not here. Ms. Bain wrote a fantastic blend and I really enjoyed it. Don’t think less of me but I did find myself tearing up as I read this. The struggles, that bastard Michael, it was all such an emotion ride.
The story itself was jumpy at the beginning but Game of Hearts was so good I couldn’t bare to give it less than 5 stars. Ms. Bain gained a new fan.
Purchase Here (Seriously, buy this!)
Paranormal, Thriller - novel
TBR Reviewer: Shyla
Conner is a private investigator with a painful past. His life was once decimated by the paranormal , and now he does his best to avoid anything supernatural. Problem is , the other world has their sights set on him When people close to him begin to disappear and spirits show up to give him warnings. Connor is forced to face the horrendous event he’s been struggling to forget. It’s a race for him to figure out what’s after him and how to stop it, before he loses the person who means the most to him.
Nightfall had a great concept, but it was so background, and detail heavy I had a hard time wading through it. The story jumped a lot between past memories, and events to the present which really threw me off. It prevented me from getting lost into the complex world P.W. created, the way I wanted to. On the upside there were plenty of twists, and turns, and I was kept guessing, till the very last.
Contemporary, Chick Lit - novel
TBR Reviewer: Luta Wolf
Kevin Smith is chilling with the guys on vacation talking smack about how cool it would be to have seven wives to fix up his house, never realizing it will come back to bite him, hard. When he saves a bag woman from a masked man and is granted one wish, he must find out the hard way to be careful what you wish for. Can one man make it work with seven wives or will Kevin find the true value of one woman?
This plot is pretty unique and a bit on the daring side, enough so that it completely intrigued me and I couldn’t put the book down. I had to know which way the author with go with this. While the pace of the book is pretty slow to begin with when it picks up it becomes more than entertaining and completely hysterical. There is a bit of a Dumb and Dumber sense of humor in the book that has you covering your face with your hands and going “ Oh Gawd Kevin!”
Despite Kevin being a bit of a typical 'smack upside the head' male, you can’t help but sympathize with him. I mean seven women all on their monthly and one lone man. Yet even though you might find yourself sympathizing there is still a part of you that can’t help but feel slightly vindicated as we watch Kevin get his. As his character grows and develops there an even deeper sense of connection and vindication all though in an all together better way.
There are some editing issues that threw me out of the book but still I have to recommend it. If I had to compare it to anything I’d lean towards What Women Want. That chick Lit that inspires, brings forth emotion, a little romance, and humor that’s sure to leave you rolling on the floor.
