Keegan Hughes is young woman who doesn’t want to act like other people expect. She is independent, strong and sarcastic woman. When she meets Adrian hKeegan Hughes is young woman who doesn’t want to act like other people expect. She is independent, strong and sarcastic woman. When she meets Adrian her world start to gets different dimension. His strong will, perseverance and actions make her request all the things that she believes that are sacred to her. Maybe in the other circumstances she will easily avoid him, but he lives next door in a duplex, which they shared with, so it’s hard to avoid someone when they practically live together.
The story in this book is about love, lost and fights about things that matter. The story is told by both of the main characters Keegan and Adrian in first person. The author decides that Keegan has to say more than Adrian, so Adrian speaks in the moments that the story needs more explanation that Keegan can’t provides. Reading Adrian’s thoughts help me to understand his behavior and his side of the story. The story is so interesting to me that I don’t want to finish the book. I was delaying to read the end a few times, but I couldn’t stand anymore and read it. Now I’m looking forward to read Deanne Eshler’s next book.
Reading this book I realize that the author was perfectly describes the psychological state of her main characters, every their conversation are followed with description how they feel or what they think, which is great to know them better. Now when I think about the characters I feel strong connection with them, I laugh on their waggery and I think about them as real, living persons.
Keegan is strong, independent woman in her twenties. She experienced so much in her life; mostly bad things which make her to be very unpleasant sometimes when she doesn’t wants interact with people. Most of the time she is great person, good and supportive friend. All those things make me to like her very much. She is my heroine.
Adrian from now on is my first book boyfriend. He is adorable, careful and strong. He knows what he wants and takes it one or another way. I laugh out loud how he manage to makes Keegan does what he want and brings her in the scene where they are in the center of attention and it’s really effective way. The life isn’t being so good with him too.
I recommend this book to people who like good book with amazing story and amazing and entertaining characters....more

Looking for job as journalist Skyler Quinn finds a sex columnist job. That is perfect she wants to write and she want to work at that magazine. But what is wrong here? Nothing except she is a virgin and she suppose to write about sex. She lives in New York with her best friend Bridget. They are together since they are babies, three of them. Three? Yes there was Bridget‘s older brother Oliver. When they goes to college they are become two of them. Sky has a big secret. No one knows that she is a virgin except all of you. She desperate needs to tell her secret to Bridget and to ask her for help with that column. But when she get home something went wrong. I was captivated by the title of this book, it’s so intriguing. But I must tell you that there in the book it’s very little of that sex column stuff. I was expected that the author will be concentrate on that with the column, how Skyler manage to write it and from where she get help, but that is just mentioned by the way not elaborated. The author’s attention is to describe how Skyler manage to live with her unfulfilled love and how she lives with her big secret. It’s not bad at all. The story keeps me reading, which is expected because I was curious to find what Skyler will do, how she will survived after revealing the secret and how her love life will be in the end. Skyler is great girl in her twenties and somehow she is virgin. She keeps that in secret, but when she spokes that loud that become a mistake. She gets on my nerves with that Ollie stuff: Ollie this, Ollie that. She has that great opportunity to finds love, she doesn’t grub it, but in the end everything goes like suppose to be. Bridget is funny girl, she doesn’t thing just react and that gives to the situation funny end. She is friend that everyone supposes to have. Bridget’s brother Oliver is careless man. I start to like him right the way he shows up in the book. I don’t like the things how it seems that are, but there deep in the book I realized why he does, what he does. I recommend this book to everyone who loves light and funny, romantic books.
Suzie and her fiance live together in suburb house. They are together for years but something isn’t right, something stops Suzie to merry her fiancé JSuzie and her fiance live together in suburb house. They are together for years but something isn’t right, something stops Suzie to merry her fiancé James. She canceled three dates. James is very kind and patient man, so he convinces his loved fiancé to go on the girl’s trip with her best friend Janice. Acapulco covers Suzie secret, so she doesn’t want to back there, but she saw bright light to this trip to get read of the past and start new life with her fiancé. She goes there in Mexico with one purpose to get divorce. Oh yes, you heard me a divorce, she is already married to Mexican man Joaquin. That was the reason why she canceled their wedding dates three times. But does Joaquin want divorce?
When I read the synopsis of this book I was frightened that everything is revealed and I couldn’t enjoy reading the book. I was wrong, very wrong. It’s not that simple. The story goes smooth from present then the next chapter goes with the past what was happened and reveal part by part. I was hardly wait to read the chapter and continue where the story from the present stops. Story from the past and the story from the present told intermittently was motivating thing to read forward till the end.
The story is told by main character Suzie in first person. The author keeps my attention with the things that Suzie has and what will be losing if she doesn’t repair the things from her past, then in Acapulco Suzie and her husband Joaquin when she reveal those things I clearly understand “why”.
Suzie is bright person but very naïve. She made mistake and that cost her very much in her life, makes her wonder if she did the right thing or not, if she hurts someone or not, repairing things will she hurts people who love her. Naively and believing in honesty in other people she goes in Mexico to fix her life. Doing right thing Suzie jumps in many funny situations which make me laugh.
Janice is very good friend, but I don’t like how she act when she finds out the truth; she should wait and clear the things between her and Suzie. She is smart, she has the right well paid job and she finally leads her love life in right direction.
I recommend this book to romance lovers and to the people how like light, funny and warm read with captivating story for the true love and how everyone should fight for it....more

They don’t stop to travel; on the contrary they continue to travel through all Europe. When they find their favorite car in Italy they travel in that car everywhere in Italy, Monaco, France, Austria, and United Kingdom. I was surprised how much country and places they visit and I was disappointed how little descriptions about those places contain this book. Descriptions about places and countries are very minimal or there aren’t descriptions at all. The author supposes to write a bit more descriptions about countries, which Wanda and her kids visited. There in this book I feel the big connections between Wanda and her children. Her son stays in UK, but they plan and travel together in their green Italian wagon. Wanda is mother, adventurous and business woman. She is woman who wants to travel and show the world to her kids. She is single mother who wants to give to her children everything love, good education and warm home. I admire her how she could do all that things, made for living and still travel a lot. In the end of the book she will finds what she deserves and that is perfect end for me. I find this book interesting with all those places and adventures, but still missing something very important, descriptions about all those places. This book is warm and calm read, about family and all important things in life. I recommend this book to everyone who likes family stories little bit spiced with adult scenes. ...more

She has everything in her life, her own family, people who love her; even her in-laws love her so much. She has great job and her boss is her friend, but something is very wrong and miss in her life.
But what is it? Her own mother. How that can be? Is she dead?
No! Her mother, Beatrice is very much alive.
Beatrice is very rich woman. She is stubborn and cold woman. She doesn’t care about other people, because she is self centered. Does is she like that or that is some mask?
One night while Anna and her husband Cole were sleeping the phone starts ringing and “guest who?” Beatrice calling. For what? Is someone hurt? No. Beatrice announces that she getting married for couple of months. So she want Anna helps her to plan the wedding.
Of course Anna will help she will do anything to please her. There is a large gap between them for a long time and it seems both of them want to pass it. In that journey many secrets will be revealed and many masks will fall.
I will tell you: What a book! I’m very pleased and happy that I have opportunity to read this book. Thank you, Hillary. Plan Bea is in my favorite books list from now. I love this book!
The story is captivates me from the beginning and I could wait to read more and more. It starts like light and funny story and then when the secrets come out I couldn’t stop myself crying, then the very big twist on the end was so unexpected and very interesting. Maybe I was predicting something, but not that. When I start reading this book I thought that it is one more light and laughing book, but I get wrong it is very profound and depth book. The relationship between mother and daughter is in the center of the story. It’s about how relationship between mother and daughter can be easily broken and rebuild again.
Anna is wonderful person, who could easily love. She can’t say no to anyone, even if that could cost her own peace. When someone asks her something she doesn’t wait just accepts and she always is willing to help.
Beatrice is woman with iron heart, very strong and full of herself. Always things have reason why is that like it is, so Bea has reasons why is like she is, I understand that in the half of the book, when some of the secrets are revealed.
I recommend this book to everyone how loves good book, not just to everyone who like chick lit, but to everyone, because this book has everything that one amazing read can has: great story, well developed characters and twist, which brings in the book excitement.

Yes, she has powers, as other peMeet Francesca Bellafiore, she is extremely attractive young girl. She has two mothers and ability to healing people. Yes, she has powers, as other people who she knows including her mothers. She went to special school for kids with abilities as no other, ordinary people. Rafael has ability too, he is an illusionist. They are different as fire and water, but when they meet each other that will be different kind of disaster. She want to be herself and helping people , but without exposing so much and she doesn’t like to be in the center of the attention, but he is bad boy, very hot but bad. Hiding behind the mask of bad ass, he just wants to angry her father.
There are pretty interesting things that was new for me like Gizmo magic, transmutation and that kind of things, so I was googling little bit to find what those things are. It was interesting and I have fun. I’m not used to read fantasy books, so I needed few days to reread so pages just to figure out what is going on. I know you will think: Common who doesn’t love fantasy books? There are so many blogs who review just fantasy books. I know and I love this book and most important thing is that this book brings my fantasy back, which I lost till this years.
The plot is interesting and keeps me reading. The characters are so vivid and dramatic, so who doesn’t like that kind of characters. Francesca with her straight and ability is real goddess. She doesn’t love to be in the center of attention, but she is like magnet of attention and when she meets Rafael that is explosion. It’s hard not to have fun reading about them; they are like hot and cold together. The sparkles spark around them, even when they hate each other. I like the chemistry when they are together.
I recommend this book for fantasy fans and for people who love YA.

If the fatness was problem in their lives before now they have more than one problem. The pregnancy is not easy: all body changes morning sickness and hormones are new things that they must deal with it.
I love to read about Ellie, Katie and Jane’s lives, especially how they continue with their lives. All of them were finding their happiness with their body, Katie was finding her love too, Jane was back to job she wants and Ellie was married. In previous book they try to deal with their bodies now they try to deal with their pregnancy with love and support and lots of humor. I love to read how their friendship helps them to get through pregnancy. I admire to their honesty, they share everything, every single thought, every little thing that they sense or experience with each other without hesitation and that helps them much. It’s short story about hundred pages, but I don’t find anything that miss in it.

Kung Fu Kitty called Wu Zhua in previous book set the cat nation free from the Monkey Dynasty, who rules in Monkey Kingdom. Now in this book Wu Zhua lKung Fu Kitty called Wu Zhua in previous book set the cat nation free from the Monkey Dynasty, who rules in Monkey Kingdom. Now in this book Wu Zhua learn how is to be independent and lives independent life without slavery and oppression. She is new president of the newfound nation Catland, which is situated inside the borders of former Monkey Kingdom, along the Yellow River in ancient China. The citizens of the Catland must follow these rules:
A cat must be loyal to family
And do his best to keep folk free.
A cat may kill spiders, mice and rats
But never, ever other cats
A cat shouldn’t steal, curse or lie
Or poke his neighbor in the eye…
There are other rules too, I choose first of those rules just to illustrate to you how Wu Zhua imagine her world and nation live in peace.
The story is very captivating and very rich with characters and scenes, which I imagine so easily and in the meantime enjoy in them. My imagination was fueled not just with those incredible great described scenes but with black and white illustrations. These illustrations are made by Michael Gentile very well with black ink on white paper. Here in Kung Fu Kitty the story of Exodus is retold with animal characters and the main character is cat.
I like how Wu Zhua is described and how she manages to lead her cat nation in independency and emancipation. In her character I see real person not an animal. Lately I have plenty of thought which telling me that animal are smarter than people and that they deserve more care and attention from us. They are pure souls who need care as babies. There in the book they are as humans, they are independent and they talk, look after oneself and manage their own kingdom with rules.
I recommend this book to everyone. This is not just a story for children, but this is the captivating story for all ages, about freedom and bravery....more

So Grannie has idea she signs Jordan up on dating service. Jordan must go on two dates per week, diner dates in restaurant where works Jordan’s brother best friend JT. That isn’t happen accidentally, but that is Grannie’s idea too, because Jordan might need protection from unworthy guys. JT likes that and every night when Jordan has date he carefully observed all situations. After that he is her consolation and back up support.
The story is good and that idea for sick member of family who has last wish is heart melting. All those dates which Jordan’s has are interesting, author makes me laugh sometimes and wonder if she will pick up some one when she get sick of trying or “the real one” will comes up soon. The end it’s kind of predictable. There through whole book were too many signs for that how things will go.
Jordan is likeable person, she want to please her grandmother. Even she don’t like blind dates she goes and meet all those man in hope that she will find her soul mate is such a short time, besides her lovely grandma will die and she must please her last wish.
JT looks to me little bit coward and confused. He is there for Jordan, but he questions herself in some situation. In one situation he is knight in shining armor in the other he is just there.
Grannie is too sweet old lady. Everyone will relate her with their grandma as I was till I read this book. I enjoy reading how JT report her about the diner and how they sometimes comment about Jordan’s dates. The most of all things I laugh to their jocks.
I recommend this book to all of romance fans, because it light, calm read.
