As always Tiffany wrote yet another book that grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let me go. A Shattered Heart is part of her "Fractured Lives" sAs always Tiffany wrote yet another book that grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let me go. A Shattered Heart is part of her "Fractured Lives" series. A couple of teens survived a horrific accident and now Tiffany is taking you on a roller coaster ride of the aftermath. This book is about one of the survivors, Kat. Kat lost her boyfriend in this accident so she became bitter and in my opinion. She had survivor's remorse. So Tiffany gives you a glimpse of her life in this book.
Losing your boyfriend and your best friend is hard. That's a given. A loss like that changes people. But what I didn't know was how messed up she was inside her head. I knew Mac was in a bad place. But it was like Kat was worst, she didn't want to get better. It's like she purposely avoided anything good in her life. She avoided her friends, a good place to live, anything that made her feel good. However, she still have to survive right, so she took on a job teaching kids. And that's where life began to change for her, I know what you're thinking. Oh the kids changed her life. No, her deceased boyfriend's brother worked there as well. And that's where things changed.
I hate to say but I absolutely LOVED Brian for Kat. He called her out on her nonsense, he didn't let her feel pity for herself or even lose her life because of his brother. Brian was there to help her pick up the pieces of her Shattered Heart. And boy did she give him a run for his money. He wasn't the little Brian she remembers. He was a grown man now, so he was mature enough to handle Kat and her ways. I LOVED me some Brian. You see their ups and downs. How their conscience gets the best of them. But overall, you get to see them overcome the odds. I love that part of the story.
This is a HEA story. Tiffany wouldn't give us anything other than that. But their "Happily Ever After" was soo good that the fact that he's her boyfriend (Deceased Boyfriend's) brother doesn't seem so taboo. You also see Mac in this book. She helps Kat too. Their friendship in fact became stronger. So that's a huge plus. And Zack, I love him. I'm sure he's going to have his own story. And I can't wait to read it!!
Need I say how much I enjoyed this story? Tiffany will forever remain on my "Must Buy" list. She never disappoints. She doesn't know how to "fail". She continues to prove that with every single book she releases. I give A Shattered Heart 5 huge stars and it's a definite Good Choice for Reading!!
I don't know how to put this without sounding mean. But I absolutely love Bash and couldn't stand Chelsea. It wasn't even the end of Chapter one beforI don't know how to put this without sounding mean. But I absolutely love Bash and couldn't stand Chelsea. It wasn't even the end of Chapter one before I fell in love with Bash. I imagined him with a great smile and dimples. So every time he was being a smart ass or a pain in the butt to Chelsea, all I can envision was a dumb smile on his face. I loved his personality. It was easy going and funny. He's definitely the kind of guy you'd love to have as your boyfriend or even your friend. He made me laugh so much. He's a win all around.
Then you have Chelsea. I just can't with her and her list. She created a list of things that she wants on the perfect man. Yeah you read that right, a "Perfect Man". As if he exists, and he if does, does he have a sibling for me?!! I swear if I was Chelsea's friend, I would knock her right upside her head because of that list. She was so damn annoying. Because of that list and how she carried on about it, made me not like her so much. I felt that for a grown woman, she acted very immature. The only good thing I can say about the list is that she knew what she wanted and what she didn't. But that's about it.
As you read the book, Bash "tries" to help Chelsea find the "perfect" guy. But of course that didn't work out soooo....the search continued. All the while the chemistry between these two was hot and pouring out the page. I truly enjoyed reading this book, especially when both Chelsea and Bash was in the same room. Their chemistry was intense and so funny. Ohhh before I forget I must mention one more character that was equally important as Bash and Chelsea. That was Bash's dog "Lu or Lulu", I can't remember. She was such a cutie.
Throughout the book, you'll read when Chelsea and Bash hangs out with friends. They're all funny. I laughed a lot during this book. But you'll also read as Chelsea lets her guards down and lets Bash in. Even though Chelsea annoyed me, I absolutely loved this book and I think others will too. I give Love After All a 4 stars and it's definitely a Good Choice for Reading.
When I first picked up Focus On Me I didn't expect to read the book I read. I expected a love story with a little bit of conflict. Which it was maybe When I first picked up Focus On Me I didn't expect to read the book I read. I expected a love story with a little bit of conflict. Which it was maybe one guy wasn't out the closet or one guy wanted to be a player. No what I read was so much more than that. I read a book that had a lot of personal issues that many people deal with on a daily basis and seek help for it. Riley had demons inside that took over him when he wasn't expecting it and that brought so much to the story.
I loved how sweet and patient Colin was with Riley. I think he was a bit crazy to give Riley a ride when he didn't even know him. But I guess it worked out for him because they did bring out good in one another. At one point I felt like Riley was someone that hadn't matured much because of things he would say. But then as I continued to read I saw the real truth behind his behavior.
Colin was such a sweety. He was a guy who was disappointed in himself because of failing out of college. But he was so much more than that. He was a caring guy that was extremely loved by his family. His intention were always good and Riley was lucky to have him. Riley was a great guy, sweet, he had this carefree spirit about him that could bring out the good even in the baddest of guys. But Riley needed more help than he realized. And I was glad that he found Colin to help him get it.
This book made me feel that even with struggles in life there's always something good to come out of it. Throughout this whole story while Riley struggled and suffered, Colin struggled and suffered too. That's what a relationship should be about. Never doing it alone. I love Megan and I can't wait to get my hands on her next book.
I give Focus On Me a 4.5 stars and it's a definite Good Choice for Reading!!
I've read a few books by Christina Lee and I must admit this one was a bit different. Her main character is Native American. This book was revolved arI've read a few books by Christina Lee and I must admit this one was a bit different. Her main character is Native American. This book was revolved around her Native American community, their religious beliefs and values. So I must admit it was a bit harder for me because I couldn't relate. Plus the main character Dakota just lost her dad and that kind of topic is very hard for me. However, despite all that the story was interesting and it kept me going.
The death of Dakota's father shook up the community pretty bad. Now that her dad was gone the community was giving her and her mom a hard time with their business. Throughout all this, her father's death also brought back home Dakota's old beau Shane. He wanted to show support to Dakota and her family and also to find out who killed her dad. There is one thing I should say this should be considered a mystery/suspense along with romance. Because this book revolved a lot around who murdered Dakota's dad. That's one thing I felt needed to be more specific.
Though Shane brought a lot to the story, it was overwhelming for Dakota having him around. They had a past together which had no closure. Their chemistry wasn't as strong as the ones I've read in her other books. So in my opinion that could have been a bit more spiced. Maybe the author wrote it that way because whose thinking of sex just after losing their parent. I don't know but this story lacked a bit more chemistry in the sexy department.
So to sum this up, Dakota lost her dad and her old boyfriend came and they rekindled their love. Was it good? Yes. Was there chemistry? Yes but not as strong as in her other books. Did the characters grow throughout the story? Yes. I give Two of Hearts a 3.5 stars. Though this book wasn't my favorite, it won't stop me from picking up another book from her. Because she is a great writer.

We were miI want to start off by saying this, Megan Erickson is the cutest little thing ever. I met her at Apollycon and I thought she was a blogger. We were mingling and laughing until someone mentioned her book. I stopped in my tracks and questioned her. She was just so sweet, and humble. And clearly you can see she takes pride in her work because I absolutely LOVED this book.
Now I have never read a M/M romance. Not because I find it gross or anything. I just haven't picked one up that grabbed my interest until this one. Trust The Focus was written so beautifully. This is not a book about two guys who discover they're gay and come out and have a bunch of bunny sex. No this book is definitely about friendship, love and finding courage to come out.
This book was so sweet. I actually connected with Justin a lot. He recently lost his dad and is having a hard time with his loss. His father was his best friend, his confidant. I also lost my dad and found it so hard to find peace after that. So I understood his pain. But luckily Landry was there for Justin. So together they embarked on a journey together to spread his dad's ashes.
I'm telling you, this book was so good. The turmoil Justin was going through on the inside was written so vividly that I wanted to go into the pages to kiss him and hug him tight. But thank goodness Landry was there. And no one could have been a better best friend than Landry. He really is the true definition of a "BFF". His love, understanding, patience and friendship is exactly what Justin needs. Landry made the journey worthwhile and a lot more memorable. He's definitely Justin's "Yin". I love me some Landry.
At the end when everything came out in the open, it made their journey from beginning to end so worth it. I didn't have one dull moment reading this book. From the time I picked it up to the time I put it down, this book entertained me the whole time. I absolutely fell in love with Justin and Landy. And I would definitely read another book with them. Megan's next book in series is called "Focus On Me". This book has a completely different character but Justin and Landry make an appearance in the book. So I can't wait to read it.
Trust The Focus is a definite Good Choice for Reading!! 5 Huge Stars!!...more
