Rating: 5 Stars – A Must Read.
Heat: 4 – An Erotic Ride.
Sarah is on a planet conquered by nasty Raknorg. It’s only her niece and herself alive in this small shack of a home trying to survive until an invisible space ship crash lands. She now has to save Draco by keeping him hidden and see if there’s any hope of saving her niece.
This book was fabulous! Seriously, the more I read the more engrossed in the story I became. The emotion was off the charts and I did tear up some. The author did a wonderful job with the sex,
sensual and hot but not too graphic. Really well done. The characters were so well written. I’m very excited to read more from this author and see great things in her future.
You know I was set on giving this book 4 stars because it did need a bit more work building but after I finished it, the characters stayed in my head. This book is one of the rare gems out there and
after some thought, I have to changed it to 5 shiny stars. I really, really (Yes, another) really, enjoyed this book. I WANT more from this talented author!

Heat: 4 - An Erotic Ride.
Left Drowning is an unbelievably powerful story of pain, heartbreak and loss. The story centers around college student, Blythe, a broken shell of a girl reeling from the horrific deaths of her parents four years prior. Her relationship with her younger brother has been fractured ever since and she has isolated herself from friendships and relationships of any kind. That is, until she suddenly finds herself thrust into the lives of four siblings, fellow students Christopher, Sabin, Estelle and Eric. As this eccentric group of friends miraculously start bringing Blythe back to life, romance flies between Blythe and eldest sibling, Chris. But the Shepherd siblings have a tragic story of their own and despite the unexplainable connection felt by all the players in this group, the road to happiness is a long and painful one.
I adored Flat-Out Love, the first story I read by Jessica Park, but I do believe that she outdid herself with this fantastic read. This book has it all. I cried ugly tears. The tragic stories behind Blythe and her friends will break your heart. The author paints a haunting picture through flashbacks and through the
characters' own narrative that will grip your heart until it hurts. My heart broke over and over again. The romance between Blythe and Chris is a perfectly imperfect one. It's filled with precious moments that will make your heart soar, and angst and drama that will break it just as quickly. Also,
surprisingly, I needed a cold shower more than once. Jessica Park did not hold back on the steam and heat by any means. Left Drowning is one seriously sexy story.
The characters in this book are so well developed, so incredibly diverse. Their personalities are refreshing, and beautiful and they compliment each other so well. I fell in love with every single one of them. The dialogue between them is so perfect and so creative. They had me laughing out loud just as often as I found myself bursting into tears .
Left Drowning is an emotional roller coaster of the very best kind, a ride that I didn't want to end. Jessica Park creates a compelling web of lives intersecting and unraveling, histories crossing, secrets unveiling, and hearts breaking and healing. I could write my own story of all the reasons I adored this story. I want to scream from the rooftop how absolutely remarkable I found it to be. Left Drowning is a beautifully written, flawless story that will stay with you long after the final page.
Fairy Unbroken by Anna Keraleigh

Rating: 5 stars – A Must Read.
Heat: 5 handcuffs – Orgasmic.
This is the third book in the fairy series. Keyn was abused as a child and learned to close his heart to others, which is easy to do when you’re a fairy. The problem is that he has already found his mate he just doesn’t want to claim her. Meanwhile, there are trolls attacking the fairies in attempt to destroy them.
I felt so bad for Keyn. The nightmare and the memories of his abuse was hard to read without tearing up. I really wanted him to find his happy ending. Trillian is having her own issues with a sick brother. Together they’re the world’s worst couple but it made for great entertainment. Trillian was really great. I liked her attitude and then her vulnerability when her brother gets worse. The push and pull between the two is fantastic. The sex was freaking fabulous! The author does not skimp on details so prepare for some serious heat.
Fairy Unbroken is a wonderful tale of two people meant to be together but refusing to go down without a

One more summer by Liz Flaherty
Genre - Contemporary romance
Length - Novel
TBR Reviewer - Daniella
Grace has always worked hard to make life easier for the people she loves. She even stayed to take care of her father, who abused her mentally and physically, just so her siblings could live their lives and dreams. When her father dies, Grace´s sister and brother, gifts her their share of the childhood home. Grace´s dream is to open a bed and breakfast in the big house, but to get the money to fix the house up she rents the rooms to a couple of old friends of
the family, her best friend Promise and her brother´s best friend Dillon.
I was a bit fooled by the cover and the blurb of this book. I got the impression this was a light-hearted romance, but it was certainly not that. It does have some romance, but it isn´t the main focus of the book. It is more about how getting over hurtful pasts, learning new truths, moving on, all with the support of friends and family.
This is definitely a character-driven book, where we get to follow all the people living in Grace´s house. I loved the characters and that they all had their problems, insecurities and quirks. There are a lot of things going on in this book at once and there are some pretty sad moments mixed in with the funny banter and witty dialogue in this book. This is not a typical romance with a happily ever after for all, no miracles or instant fixes, but as a reader I was still very happy with the journey and where the characters were at the end of the book.
Liz Flaherty has written an amazingly touching story with lovely and believable characters. I haven´t described the characters and the plot in detail, because I recommend others to read it for themselves. The story is very well written and I really enjoyed this book. I am not a crier, but parts of this book even made me shed a tear.
