Ingrid is sixteen years old, but with fake documents and her tall body she is looking as grown up. On her teenage state she experiences more than ever can experience on teenager. There are good and bad, twists and turns, but with all those things she becomes one strong person with one to get back in Germany. After Los Vegas she moved in New York and meets some special for her. His name is David. David wants to build the business in New York, but as Ingrid says:”That was New York. You either beat it, or city beat you.” Whether she returns in Germany or she will switch her wish with another one? This book makes me to believe that I’m in USA in sixties and seventies, when hippie movement is in began to develop. I love the hippie movement, their ideals and their style (or no style) in every part of their life: in fashion and hair style and how they lived their lives. Besides there is Elvis Presley and all singing and movie star from this age. I like Elvis songs and movies, so considering that he is shows up here I like this book too. Ingrid is young girl, who just wants to live her life that she knows, back in Germany chatting and hanging up with her best friend. But her parents moved their family in USA for better life and all those kid’s ideas for life are despaired for Ingrid. In USA she had some big changes and turns which makes her to grow up faster and on her teenage she become woman. The author describes Ingrid’s life and all those things which happen to her with dialogues then with her own thoughts and feelings. There is more action, dialogues, then thinking and reasoning things. I like the age that is describe in book, then I like descriptions of Ingrid, how she grows and is self person. ...more

Janey and Mark are perfect couple. She is journalist, beautiful and attractive; he is tall and very handsome attorney. Mark takes Janey to trip in Caribbean. There Mark asks Janey “the question” she says “yes”and everything is great till Janey gets call from her boss. She supposes to go to other island Tortola and take a picture of some celebrity for the magazine cover. Mark is disappointed; he couldn’t go with her fiancée. But is not simple to go to Tortola, it’s holiday and there is no ride to Tortola, single transport is one old boat and very rude captain. They sailed and near Tits Island they are stuck in the middle of the sea. Tits Islands(lol) as Travis, the captain calls those islands, because they look to him like woman breasts.
Reading about the drama on the ocean I wanted to be there and see all those beautiful places, despite the danger. Blue ocean is everywhere around them and danger rises the adrenaline. I laugh out loud on Janey and Travis conversation in front of Tit Islands when Travis thinks that she is married to some attorney or doctor and Janey thinks that he is a savage.
I like entanglement, stuck in the middle of the ocean and how the author frees things. I was sorry for Mark but then I realized that everything is in the right spot where should be.
This book I highly recommend for summer days to everyone who love romance spiced with danger in the blue ocean.

Kenley after one relationship disaster healed herself studied in Europe. She learned how to make chocolate and to do magical chocolate things in Switzerland and Belgium.When she finished her studies she founded her own company for making chocolate, Confection Consultation. Everything is right suppose to be.Most important thing for Kenley is everyone to see that she is smart not just beautiful blond. After her last relationship she doesn't date, but everything will change after meeting hockey player Nate. Nate is first that looks that Kenley is not just beautiful but is smart also. He is super star and doesn't trust a woman, because he has broken heart. Could they trust each other? Will both of them change and find happiness together?
Another amazing book from Aven Ellis. This book is from Dallas Demons series, first one was about Kylie and Harrison, they appear in this book too. Harrison is hockey player too in Dallas Demons and he is married with Kylie. I find everything that I expect from one great romance book the plot is very descriptive and real, there two people who will fall in love and there are romantic moments that I want to read. The "game" hot-cold in the beginning between Kenley and Nate makes me want to read till the end.
Kenley is independent woman. She couldn't accept that people in her see beautiful, blond woman, she is more then that, she is smart and intelligent too. Kenley intends to show how she is beautiful inside making chocolate in amazing shapes and with amazing flavors. She is so successful in that. Her heart is open for all chocolates in the world, but is close for man.
Nate is traded in Dallas Demons from Minnesota. There in Minnesota he experiences betrayal in the worst way and he loses confidence in women. He is super star and wanted by women, but he is broken and disappointed. Nate could be with any woman that he will wants to be, but he doesn't want.
From all characters I like Kenley's mother. She is so funny I laugh till tears on her gaffes. She is middle age woman who want to surf on internet and find all stories about celebrities and believes in all.

What would one woman want more then quite life for herself? I mean really quite life, one boyfriend and great work and friends. Harper James is divorceWhat would one woman want more then quite life for herself? I mean really quite life, one boyfriend and great work and friends. Harper James is divorce attorney and she is really hard with her cases in courtroom. She had one divorce behind herself and she knows how it is to be young and full with love and then everything to stop and break in pieces. But those times are over she is strong now and she has the most popular and handsome fireman in her island besides her as her boyfriend of course. But one day her sister will call her and tells her that she will marry again. Harper’s future brother in law is her Nick’s brother. Nick is her ex. Oh, I know this is madness! But wait to read this: she will be forced to trip with her ex. That is madness!!! I was trapped till the end of this book and when the end goes I wanted more. This is captivating and warm story will laugh you and left you with heart filled with warmness and long lasting sense of satisfaction. There are plenty scenes where, you know, time is stopped and everything goes slowly and the moments of happiness filled between main characters. Harper is woman with strong spirit. She knows what she wants and she is realist in that point that her realism hurts. She is convinced that love is not enough one relationship to last, but there are more important things. She likes her boyfriend, but that isn’t love. To be honest I don’t like him at all. Which man calls his girlfriend “dude”!? Very romantic! But how the story goes I was sorry for him. Nick, on the other hand, is very intelligent and careful and wonderful. He is that kind of man that patiently waits and grub that woman that he is thinks that is his. I hate his don’t understanding Harper why she left their home in the past, but he was intelligent enough to understand that till the end. I recommend this book to everyone who loves romance with funny parts. This book was borrowed from one of my students. Thank you Mila! This review is previous posted on Books are my life...more
Do you believe that one video could change someone's life?
Rachel is ordinary girl in twenty and something, she is jobless and forced to live with herDo you believe that one video could change someone's life?
Rachel is ordinary girl in twenty and something, she is jobless and forced to live with her parents. Back in her room from her childhood where are all her memories , good and bad, she lived her life without excitement.One day Rachel meet Mick Sullivan, he is celebrity actor and musician. She help him with shopping and in return he gifted her coffee machine and record one video with him and Rachel as proof that she really meet him. Excited Rachel shows that video to her best friend Janna. Jenna and Rachel was friends since their childhood. Jenna post that video on Internet.For few days Rachel will read some unpleasant comments from some girl obsessed with Mick Sullivan. Then Rachel starts to find some handwritten messages in her mailbox. Those messages containing threats really scares Rachel, but her life became nightmare when she founded her cat dead.
When I got this book I thought that it is average book, but I was wrong. This is not avarage book, how I turn the pages I was liked more and more. Now I know that I was really wrong. The plot is interesting, the author shows two stories, maybe three, one is Rachel's story, the other one is to some girl(I know who she is, but I couldn't tell you) and third is about Mick Sullivan. Two very different lives will crossed in one point, actually in one third life. One innocent girl, one very bad, psiho girl and one celebrity guy will became part of one suspense and intriguing story- this story written by Denise Webb.
Rachel is girl as like and respect in real life. Maybe in the beginning Rachel was not strong woman character as I used to read, but till the end she was become very brave and strong young woman. Mick Sullivan is actor and musician. He is typical celebrity guy, alcohol and girls are his deadly sins. But he was that kind of guy in his past, now he is more then that he is human and he has feeling as others, he is careful and hard working man. His past will became his nightmare and he had no other choice but to deal with it everyday. The girl that will bring together Rachel and Mick is very well described character, sick and dangerous she is ticking bomb. It was interesting her sessions with her psychotherapist.
