Review: Laird of the Black Isle

Laird of the Black Isle Laird of the Black Isle by Paula Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was wonderful to be back in Paula Quinn's world again. This book was everything I wanted for this fabulous extended family and the fact that it has some Beauty and the Beast elements to it, intended or not made it that much sweeter.

Review: Counting on a Countess

Counting on a Countess Counting on a Countess by Eva Leigh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have always loved Eva Leigh/Zoe Archer books and this one is no exception. Strong Women and supporting Men make a great romance in any time period. While this is a London Underground book I'm pretty sure there is crossover with the Wicked Quills of London Series too and I was very happy to see that too!

Review: Sinner

Sinner Sinner by Sierra Simone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first Sierra Simone book and it will not be my last. This book was incredible, I was expecting a "bad boy" turned good book and I was not wrong but it was so much more. Sean has some very good and deep reason for being how he is but to follow his journey to get to a good place in his life is one of the most beautiful things I have seen written in a long time. Is the book sexy? Is it steamy? Does it push some boundaries? Yes it does; but is does it all in a beautiful and thought provoking way.

Review: On Hart’s Boardwalk

On Hart’s Boardwalk On Hart’s Boardwalk by Samantha Young
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this story and it was a simply wonderful crossover. I will say the Prologue had me worried and as a none spoiler, spoiler; relax it will be ok. Samantha has never let us down and she did not this time. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer but that is really a compliment! Enjoy.

The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes

The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes by Leonard GoldbergThe thrilling tale of Sherlock Holmes’ daughter and her companion Dr. John Watson Jr. as they investigate a murder at the highest levels of British society from the USA Today bestselling author.

1910. Joanna Blalock’s keen mind and incredible insight lead her to become a highly-skilled nurse, one of the few professions that allow her to use her finely-tuned brain. But when she and her ten-year-old son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they are visited by the elderly Dr. John Watson and his charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson Jr. Impressed by her forensic and deductive skills, they invite her to become the third member of their deductive team.

Caught up in a Holmesian mystery that spans from hidden treasure to the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880, Joanna and her companions must devise an ingenious plan to catch a murderer in the act while dodging familiar culprits, Scotland Yard, and members of the British aristocracy. Unbeknownst to her, Joanna harbors a mystery of her own. The product of a one-time assignation between the now dead Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, the only woman to ever outwit the famous detective, Joanna has unwittingly inherited her parents’ deductive genius.

Fans of the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen and the Stapleton and Montgyomery series by Robin Cook will enjoy this suspenseful story, full of excitement and intrigue.


MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK

 Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to review this book. 

  3.5 stars for me. If you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and strong women characters you will enjoy this book. It is written is a very Watson style which was fun but at times I felt it was trying too hard to be a new Sherlock Holmes adventure. Over all I enjoyed it and would recommend it to Homes fans as a fun addition.

Aced

25687858Rylee and Colton's ride continues...

One moment. Six years ago.

The night she made the world around me so much more than just a blur. Now it's the catalyst that threatens to tear us apart.

Our happily was supposed to be ever after. So why do I feel like it's slipping through my fingers?

How can one moment, when our world seemed so right, resurface and cause our perfect life to spiral out of control?

I can't lose her.

She's my checkered flag.


My Thoughts on the Book

 
This book gutted me but in the best possible way. This book is full of emotion from both Colton and Rylee and lets not forgot the boys of the boys floored me. It a small way this book is not a steamy as the rest but what is slightly lacks in steam it makes it up in emotion, heart and pure love. This is an alternating POV story that does both Colton and Rylee justice in equal measure. I can not say enough great things about this book and the make the rest of the books in this series that much sweeter.

My Thoughts on the Book

 
Colleen Hoover loves to gut you, heal you and gut you all over again and that is exactly what she did for me and this book. It is beautiful, it is inspiring and will make you cry. It is about growth and forgiveness and finding yourself and love. At times you will hate one of the characters, maybe 2 but you will love them too. Yes there is an HEA otherwise I would be curled up in a corner rocking myself. Colleen Hoover can do no wrong.

Under Different Stars

19504931Kricket Hollowell is normally not one to wish upon stars; she believes they’re rarely in her favor. Well versed at dodging caseworkers from Chicago’s foster care system, the past few years on her own have made Kricket an expert at the art of survival and blending in. With her 18th birthday fast approaching, she dreams of the day when she can stop running and find what her heart needs most: a home.

Trey Allairis hates Earth and doubts that anyone from his world can thrive here. What he’s learning of Kricket and her existence away from her true home only confirms his theory. But, when he and Kricket lie together under the stars of Ethar, counting them all may be easier than letting her go.

Kyon Ensin’s secrets number the stars; he knows more about Kricket's gifts than anyone and plans to possess her because of them. He also knows she’s more valuable than any fire in the night sky. He’ll move the heavens and align them all in order to make her his own.

When everything in their world can be broken, will Kricket rely upon love to save her under different stars?


My Thoughts on the Book

 
I received this book for free at New York Comic Con of all places! Taking my son there had a bonus for me too! When I heard Amy would be there I looked up her books again and while I had not read any yet she was one my list so I was excited to try a meet her. I am so happy I did and so happy I loved this book. I don't usually read sci-fi but I do read YA, NA and Paranormal to name a few genres. This fits perfectly into that group if you are all concerned that sci-fi is not your thing. ( I actually like sci-fi a lot but I tend to watch my sci-fi and not read it) but I digress, this is a perfect coming of age meets hot alien meets powerful strong girl. There is heart a humor and much more to come. On to the next book!
