I was expecting another erotic tale about two people being stranded and getting the hots for each other and doing the do all through the book, you know, same o same o story right? I was so wrong on so many levels this was waayy off the rector scale of what I had assumed.
Let me see there is so much that can be said about this story I dont know where to begin, so um, so let me start with giving you the story of two strangers on there way back to there own separate merry lives on a small plane when it suddenly goes down in the ocean. Now the realism in this story is what grabbed me it was like I was there going through everything and it made me think too. What the heck would I do if this would happen to me? I tell you I wouldn't last a day I'd be dead, seriously. The way she put these to characters together to help them survie was mind blowing. I would have never thought about what fruits you can and can't eat what plants and roots you can use to make flour and medicine. Oceans being from the islands grew up with women who knew and taught how to make things from 'nature sources' Marshall had some engineering experience in college so he knew how to make things. So with those two and their knowledge of those things they were able to survie. Now for the love story it was more about how they came together by doing the necessary daily things to survie that their love grew for the other and it was bitter sweet. Yes they were attracted to the other, yes there was sex, but it wasn't the focus. It was more on how love can grow and bonds can be made in situation like this. And how even if your stranded on an island or living your daily life in a big city or small town relationships and being in love are and will always be something worth fighting for. Pepper Pace tells a story of two strangers who become more than just friends they become soul mates.
I am a lover of males of worth in my stories I read and Marshall was one of them he was true to his feelings from the get go, he was so real to me he didn't act all macho, he was scared and he was protective also. There are two parts where he had me crying the main one was when he oh I can't tell you, you have got to just read it but I will say this when he cries you will too. It will make you think on a lot of levels of how we don't let men have choices when it comes to women issues you have to read it to know what I'm talking about or pm me and I'll tell you.lol But oh did he make my heart break and rethink some things about our choices we make. HIs love for Oceans was a Titanic worth love.
Now as much as I love males of worth there have been only a few books that I have read where the heroine was a female of worth. Ocean's was a female of worth. I. loved. her. She was a strong and a very smart woman I loved her way of thinking. She was a true survivor and she really put me in her shoes. Her outer and inner beauty had me smiling and crying the whole book. Her love for Marshall was so deep and honest.
Pepper Pace has a new fan and I will be reading all her books. I actually had to add this book myself here on goodreads because it was not listed. You have got to check out the rest of her books I've sampled more and they are all on my to-read list and yes I have to add them on here too. Her writing is that good. I recommend this to all my friends who want a real love story not smut not just all about attraction and lust but of true undeniable, unquestionable, irrevocably without a doubt, love that will make your heart fill with joy after you have read it. This is the book for you.
Here is my couple Marshall and Oceans Happy reading!!! :) Oh and I have to add the theme song for this book was Sure Thing by Miguel because they were a sure thing.
What a wonderful storyteller Juliet Marillier is. I absolutely loved this book It was so deep and full of emotions. The retelling of the seven swans wWhat a wonderful storyteller Juliet Marillier is. I absolutely loved this book It was so deep and full of emotions. The retelling of the seven swans was done wonderfully. I thought at the beginning I was going to have a hard time reading this, but the author has a way of telling a story that makes you want to listen and yearn for more.
Sorcha the sister of seven brothers that were put under a spell, had to endure a lot to break the curse the evil witch that also married their father and enchanted him put on them. She had to take a vow of silence and make six shirts out of this weed, plant, or flower.(wasn't quite sure what is was) but it was called stawort and was painful to touch. She also could not mention in any kind of way what task she had and why...
She went through so much and had been so strong through this whole entire book I really felt for her and her brothers. Then she gets raped and then kidnapped at some point and meets the love of her life course she doesn't realize this till the end but their friendship that turned into love was beautifully written. I fell in love with Red he was truly a man of worth.
I recommend this book to all who love a good fantasy story thats filled with action, love, death, trauma, and is spiritual and touches your heart plus my personal favorite happily ever afters and makes you truly believe that love is the strongest thing we have in life..
Here is my Sorcha and Red. :) Happy Reading ...more
Well what can I say about this book?.... WOW! thats what I can say about... I thought it was awesomely written Cassandra Clare is a talented story tellWell what can I say about this book?.... WOW! thats what I can say about... I thought it was awesomely written Cassandra Clare is a talented story teller I was sucked into this story from the very first page their were so many surprises twist turns. The ending has me a little confused with what was happening with Jace and Sebastian , but I cant wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series. Like I've said before I'd recommend this book to all who loved Harry Potter. The one thing that I loved more about this book is being a romance freak I loved that the love story in this between Jace and Clary was so sweet. Well I'm out of things to say because this book has just got me so speechless..... I've had this book in my closet waiting to be read but knew once I got started I wouldn't be able to stop well let me tell you when I got to the last 4 pages I put the book down for 3 days because I didn't want it to end... I cant wait for them to get the movie out!!! Oh! and Simon Im glad he was a major part in this story cant wait to read more about him too.
Well here is my couple... happy reading Honestly Alex Pettyfer would make the perfect Jace but after watching him promote his last two movies he is starting to look a bit too old for the part as Jace now dont you agree? Just like Daniel is for Harry Potter to me he looked like a 25 year old in the last movie...lol...more
Well this book was amazing I absolutely loved it. Cassandra Clare really knows how to captivate you, bringing you into her fantasy world full of all Well this book was amazing I absolutely loved it. Cassandra Clare really knows how to captivate you, bringing you into her fantasy world full of all kinds of well described creatures that had me in awe and cringing away. She has a wonderful imagination. It was like watching a movie. This book was full on excitement.
Once you think your gonna have a calm moment BAM! back at it again, they gotta save Simon, then Clary, then Jace. and on and on. I was so wrapped in this story that the things I didn't like kinda fell to the back burne. Like the whole brother and sister thing with Clary and Jace, which I still don't think is true(ok I'm seriously hoping it's not) and everything smelling like metal, concrete, and copper. That had me wondering if New York smelled like that all the time.
I'm really looking forward to reading the next book to this series to see what Valentine will do next and how this group of teenagers are going to fight against him and his demon crew, and Clary's mom there is so much hidden from Jace and Clary to many secrets that need to come out. And I for one bet that Hodge know's it all. They need to find him so I can finally get some answers. :) ...more
Well this book was a surprise I heard that it was a funny, hilarious read, but I got so much more from this book it was all that and more I eGo fetch
Well this book was a surprise I heard that it was a funny, hilarious read, but I got so much more from this book it was all that and more I enjoyed it so much.
I have to admit the potty mouths were kind of a put off but other than that it was fine I have read much worst language before, so let me get to the point of what I liked about this book. First of all it took me three days to read. I could have read it in less than one but I wanted it to last longer and that’s when I know I have a keeper book.
The characters in this book were a amazing strong welled and good hearted towards on another the banter between the main hero and heroine was too funny, I’m talking laughing out loud in the middle of the night, wake my husband up funny. I have never laughed so much reading a book. The loves scenes were even better. I have been trying to get away from erotic books but to me it was well written, and it was, what it was, some good lovemaking.
It was a fast paste book but slowed down enough for you to get the feel of everything. Even though I started with the second book to this series Shelly L. gives you enough description with out boring you about the pack and previous characters from the first book.
Miki, that Miki she was awesome, she was one bad a$$ chick she took no mess and that Conall Wow!! All I can say is just wow. I like the fact that she was scared of letting herself go with Conall but didn’t drag it out to the point were you’re like “come on get with it girl”. But she wasn’t, it all just flowed really nicely. After reading this book I am defiantly a fan Ms. Shelly L and cant wait to get her other books. I can’t wait to read about Miki in her first book especially
What do I think about this book? I think that Latrivia Nelson has done it again!!!...Well actually she did it even better with this one I loved that iWhat do I think about this book? I think that Latrivia Nelson has done it again!!!...Well actually she did it even better with this one I loved that it was a romance with a mob theme it was amazing, because she still kept the romance in it, actually there was even more romance it this book than her last. To me this was a true romance novel I loved every single page... that was one of the reasons I took so long to read this because I knew I would just zoom right through it. Every character in this book was amazing I mean AMAZING! I loved her descriptions of everyone you felt like you knew them I loved Dmitry he was a cold hearted killer when it came to his organization but when it came to loving Royal uh I was seriously jealous had me daydreaming about becoming a crime boss's girl. This is a must have, a must read, a must keep on your shelf, and re -read again... I cant wait to get to Royal Flush to continue the new life that Dmitry and Royal will lead... I recommend this to all who want some different type of romance with a mob guy it was awesome and not to mention the return of Nicola its good to know he is still with Ivy and staying true to her... keeping her pregnant and all....;)
What more can I say about this book..... well let me see can I say again how AMAZING this was. Royal looking for work walks into a restaurant and into a world she never imagine would be her's. Rich as can be Dmitry literally sweeps her off her feet with diamonds and the a job of her dreams and not to mention an unbreakable deep founding love to make your heart weak with longing.... Dmitry crime boss from Russia doing what he normally does didn't expect to be fall in love with the breathtakingly beautiful naive young girl that walked into his restaurant she literally changes his life he even broke his own codes to be with her. I loved how Dmitry courted her and took his time but Ms. Nelson didn't make us wait too long for them to get together and when they did... girrrl let me tell you It was hot, hot, hot. OMG! I tell you again this book was amazing and I hope you enjoy reading it like I did.
