Renée Carlino - Before We Were Strangers - Book Review (Review Copy)

Publisher: Atria Paperback, 2015.
Genre: Contemporary romance.
Length: 310 pages.

I totally fell in love with this story, although I am partial to photographers and second chance romances. This story weaves a tale of longing, angst and deceit. I wanted to cry at the injustice and cheer for their truth.

Matthias Shore meets Graceland Starr when he moves into his co-ed dorm at NYU. By some stroke of luck he ends up in the room next to hers. Two artistic souls—he’s a photography major, she’s a music major—they instantly click. The chemistry between them is set on slow burn as they build a solid friendship, but the heat won’t be ignored forever.

Chelsea M. Cameron - Surrendering to Always - Book Review (ARC)

Publisher: Chelsea M. Cameron, 2015.
Genre: Contemporary romance.
Length: 262 pages.

This is the fourth book in the Surrendering Saga by Chelsea M. Cameron. After shifting the focus to Sloane (Rory's BFF) and Ryder (Lucah's brother) in the third book, now we’re back to our loved up couple and their journey down the aisle. Life has a few more surprises for Rory and Lucah before they get there, however. 

Okay, I’m not going to rehash the blurb with this one and I don’t want to put in spoilers if you haven’t read the rest of the series. You absolutely need to read these in order. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series. I mean - a male executive assistant seduces his young female boss whose father happens to own and run the company - sign me up. The palpable chemistry from the beginning is still going strong and there are a few surprises to keep the reader turning the pages.

Abbi Glines has gone back to her YA roots with this one. This series opener introduces a new bunch of characters that look promising for stories to come. Be prepared for an emotional read in this first book.

Their son, Brady is the same age and the star quarterback of the high school football team. His circle of friends? The other guys on the team.

Big problem. She doesn’t speak, hasn’t since undergoing the trauma of losing her mother. She needs a safe nurturing environment so she can start to heal. For the first time in a long time she feels that it might be possible, but being forced to attend field parties and football games is not helping.

Warbling Me - September Roundup

Hi all,

Okay, I thought I had a quiet month, but looking at all the posts below, maybe I didn't. I only did two reviews in September, although I read many more books than that. My apologies for not posting more reviews, but I've been working on the release of my novella, Remembering Home. If you want to know more about that you can click on the purple website button above. I won't warble on about it here because I'm terrible at self promo.

Anywho, I just finished reading Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines (you should  know she's one of my faves). She's returned to her YA roots with this one and I absolutely loved it. Dang it, she made me cry! I'll be posting my review, hopefully on Monday so I can do a quote-tastic meme as well.

I've nearly finished reading When I Break - the complete series by Kendall Ryan. Sex addict meets virgin sex addiction counsellor. Certainly an interesting concept and Kendall makes it work.
