The Fiercest Heart: Yet again, Sharon Sala uses the "parents lying to young lovers to keep them apart" plot device. It's so. fucking. tired. I would give this 3 stars.

Lethal Lessons: Never expected the twist. The heroine was a bit of a Polly Anna, but otherwise I liked it. 4 stars.

This was disappointing to me because I expect so much more from Sala. I found the suspense elements way too predictable, and did not like the glossing over of ten years right in the middle of the action ... perhaps flashbacks would have handled this better, Sharon.

I also think not enough time was spent on allowing us into the hero's point of view. Both protagonists seem fairly shallowly drawn. She's graduating high school. What are her plans for the summer? Is she off to college in the fall?

I have always enjoyed Ms. Sala’s novellas and she didn’t disappoint. Her story, The Fiercest Heart, was pretty good and fairly believable. I liked the characters and the ending was sweet. The twist was easy to call, but how much suspense can you really build up in 120 pages? So 3 stars for Ms. Sala.
The second story in the book, Lethal Lessons, wasn’t as good. I kept having the feeling that I was missing key information. The time jumps in the story were a bit disorienting and left out a lot of

Sharon was great as always! First time reading Colleen Thompson and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Loved both stories. The Fiercest Heart by Sharon Sala. The story of Haley Shore and Mack Brolin. This one touched me and I felt for Haley. Lethal Lessons by Colleen Thompson. The story of Mara Stillwell and Adam Jakes. This one had an unexpected twist that I did not see.

The first book was the best. It was sweet yet suspenseful. The last book took me some time to like it. But by the end I couldnt stop reading it.
