Usually, I get a new Nora Roberts book and I inhale the content as I love her writing style. The characters are usually really easy to fall head over heels in love with, not this time however. The female characters Mac, Parker and co, seemed to be really feisty and I was looking forward to reading about their story but that didn't happen. I thought with being set around the girls running a wedding company in the perfect local, it would be full of romance and humour but, I just couldn't see the stark between Mac and Carter who has professed to love her all his life.
I will carry on reading the rest of the series however as I have set myself a personal challenge to read all the Nora Roberts books at some point. Here's hoping the next book is better. ...more

I loved this book from the beginning and read it in one sitting. It ticked every box for me of what I look for in a book. Two wounded souls who find each other and help repair years of hurt, both fighting their own demons but so much stronger together. The book covers some very dark subject matters, but the author manages to do it in such a way you are taken on a healing journey with the characters rather than living their nightmares. I will definitely be looking out for the next installment.

Wow! I cannot believe this ebook was only about 20 pages long, there was so much content for a short story. Daniel returns home after the Vietnam War and finds the girl he thought he had loved and lost Willow working at the local vet clinic.
The book deals with various subject matters, war, loss, love, and corruption it is beautifully written. I also appreciated how the cover art matched the ending of the book....more

I loved this book, it has the perfect mix of everything I look for in a good book. A feisty female lead, an attractive alpha male, and best of all strong friendships forged over food and conversation, it is a book full of sweetness. I was attracted to the book as I love the 1950's and love my vintage dresses. I started reading last night and had finished it in 3 hours.
Scott Sullivan has to return to his hometown, to try and acquire a business property for a large coffee chain he is representing. For him, Morello Cove isn't a beautiful coastal town but a place out of his nightmares, bringing back too many bad memories. Intent on doing his job and getting back to the City, he approaches the boutique the coffee chain are interested in and gets more than he bargained for with the quick-witted Danielle Harris, one of the owners.
Surprisingly, there are so many elements within the story, betrayal, loss even war. I will definitely be looking out for book 2, Fleur and Austin's story (I'm presuming) looks set to sizzle!...more

This book had so much potential and I am sure lots of other people will have loved it, but for me personally it reminded me too much of other series I have read. For example 'The Selection Series' for the Prince to the Court, and I couldn't help find a lot of Katniss from the 'Hunger Games' in the main character 'Mare' there were so many similarities throughout the book I kept losing track of the story and I was slipping back into the others....more

Alice Clayton's style of writing never fails to make me laugh out loud whilst reading or in this case listening as I went for the audiobook option.
I will definitely be reading the next book in the series :) it was hilarious. Private chef to the Hollywood Elite, Roxie Callahan loses her temper with one of her clients and ends up losing all the referrals she had for her new thriving business. Having no choice but to return to the town she grew up in and manage her Mums Diner whilst she goes to compete in a reality show. The book is filled with hilarious characters from Roxie's hippie mother to her high school crush and his Husband who become fast friends.
The book is fully of witty banter, hot men and sweet romance what more could you want?...more

To be honest, I started this, book 2 in the series totally confused as to what was going on at Beaverlick University and I am now even more confused that before.
The book follows the story of Professor Jason Loyre and a bunch of horny students, things are definitely getting even weirder than they were in book one. I do feel that after reading this book more things are becoming clearer to the reader but there are still a lot of unanswered questions about what is really going on at the Uni. The book explores BDSM, Submission and threesomes so far, the sex scenes are written very well, but I personally am finding it all a little too far fetched. I think there are just too many characters and plots that I am losing interest in the story. However, one thing that may keep my interest is the ending of this book where Jasons estranged wife makes a return I am not sure where she will fit into this story....more

I first attracted to the beautiful cover art and intrigued with the synopsis as it gives very little away.
I started listening to this in audiobook version but quickly switched to my Kindle. One of the main characters Noah was supposedly from London but the accent by the narrator was painful. Being English myself and knowing the accent well it grated on me and I found it distracting me from the actual plot.
Without giving too much away Mara Dyer wakes up in a hospital bed with no memory of how she got there or what has happened. After reading the opening scene , you as the reader have no idea where this book is going. Throughout I kept thinking is this a YA is it a Mystery is in Paranormal and I am still not sure how to classify it as it is all those things.
The book is wonderful and is full of twists and turns, there are various stories interwoven with Mara's and her family and I spent the whole book trying to find out what I was happening to her. The book definitely ends on a cliffhanger, which may again make you question everything you just read and if Mara is right about the assumption of herself. I probably will get around to reading book two but at a guess, it also will sit on my shelf for a while before I get around to it.

It follows the story of a chemistry teacher getting hit on by a very forwards student. To say the book is only 58 pages long, I thought the plot was quite thorough, and there was plenty of content for a quick read.
I found the teachers character to be slightly confusing, he was timid his student Wine (yes that is her name), I guess this could be due to her being a student and the consequences of what would happen if they were found out but then he starts having a sexual relationship with a colleague and he becomes Mr Dom….just didn’t fit with the character we were initially introduced to.
Also for me one thing that put me off this book, is the word ‘gash’. This is just a personal thing, but the word made me cringe I hate it! It kept popping up throughout and is probably why I would also avoid the next book in the series, having said that I enjoyed passing half an hour reading this. I don’t feel like I have wasted my time. One thing I loved was the little silhouettes at the beginning of each chapter, I think is somehow stops a page of text from feeling daunting and boring....more
This is definitely not the kind of book I would generally read and it definitely not for the faint-hearted.
The book is written with pain and sufferingThis is definitely not the kind of book I would generally read and it definitely not for the faint-hearted.
The book is written with pain and suffering from the outset and takes place in Germany around the rise of Hitler and the Holocaust. I kept seeing it pop up on my newsfeeds and to be honest wanted to read it just so I could say I have, and see if I agreed with all the wonderful reviews by readers and critics alike.
I won't like I struggled with this, I opted for the audio version because the Kindle version was nearly 600 pages long and due to the subject matter I thought I may need to take a breather throughout. It did take me a few days to get through it, and I struggled with the hardship. The main character Liesel wasn't hard to like, she was a courageous and brave young lady who found the best way to survive in the harshest of times. I won't give you the full story as we all know what atrocities happened in Germany during WWII.
One of the things I did enjoy about this book and shows the wonderful mind of the author, is that the who book is narrated by Death. I found his twist on who body and soul collecting quite entertaining and it kept the unpleasantness of the topic and the act of death quite lighthearted when quite obviously it is not. I just kept humming along to 'Sympathy For the Devil' by The Rolling Stones. ...more

When I first saw the illustrated cover I was intrigued as the book looked really eerie and foreboding and thought the book would be a horror, the synopsis really doesn't give much away. Whilst reading the book I was reminded of the X-Men series and Miss Peregrine definitely resembles Xavier.
For my own 35 years old mind the book was a little too far fetched but I can imagine if I had read this as a young adult I would have been engrossed.
Basically, the peculiar children all have their own unique gift and live in a special 'loop' like time capsule keeping them a secret from the outside world.
