Now I'm looking into his incredibly beautiful blue eyes. He came back into my life as quickly as he left. Both of us have changed over the years, but I can't imagine living another day withou ...more

4 awesome to-the-stars stars!!

I am soooo glad the author reached out to me and asked me to read and review her book because honestly? I LOVED IT SO MUCH! I read it in 2 sittings and it would have been one if I didn't have to go to sleep (it was already around 3am)!

The characters are absolutely amazing! We have our main characters Aimee (I love the name!) and Keegan which were both really likable but then there's also his brother Kaleb and Aimee's best friend/roommate Reece. Let me tell you ...

4.0 TO THE STARS STARS!!!

“You look like a princess from one of those princess movies—you know, the ones where someone rescues them. You have the prettiest, shiny hair, and I think I saw your eyes sparkle when I first saw you.”

I LOVE THIS BOOK! There I said it...I mean who wouldn't?When you get to read  Skyscrapers and Camelot you will know what I mean. This is one of those light hearted, fast paced read even without too much of a drama and not too much angst will keep your heart racing because o

This was ok. The story is kind of a mess of all the possible cliches in a romantic story and the biggest one is the fact that they were friends in childhood and now they meet after 8 years. Really? And if they were completely in love with each other why the hell they waited?! I'm too logical for stories like this.
I wanted to like it, I tried, I even finished it, but the characters were flat, I felt like I read this story already in other books, even the sex scenes are flat written and I felt no

I was instantly drawn in by the intriguing blurb and title and I was not disappointed! I found the title to be absolutely perfect for the storyline the author went with. I loved Keegan and Aimee and their whole relationship and connection. They are one of those couples who meet at a young age and you are just rooting for them to get their happily ever after. I read this in one big long sitting and was absolutely captivated with the story.

Gifted an advanced copy for an honest review.

I enjoyed this story. I read it in almost one sitting. I was definitely intrigued for the duration of the novel, constantly wondering what would come next. I don't want to say "this was great for a debut" because I believe it was simply enjoyable, regardless of the fact that it was Mindy's first book. I liked the way the plot was developed and how certain things came to light at just the right (or wrong) times. I did get that dreadful feeling that com

A mere child, Aimee’s life is broken when her mother passes away but the resulting family relocation has a more dramatic effect on her and despite the fact that she is with her father and indeed her grandparents, this heartbroken little girl wants nothing more than to go home.
But all that changes when she meets the little boy from across the street who will go on to have such an important part in her life…always.
This really was a book that tugged at the heart strings and rightly so.

Mindy Carter is a new author for me, but one I will be sure to follow. She creates unforgettable characters, friendships, loyalty, and true love. Mindy has the ability to keep you engaged in the story and truly happy for the characters when things are right.

SKYSCRAPERS AND CAMELOT is the first book in the Renovate Series and contains everything that makes a good book. Romance, humor, suspense, and for those that believe in love at first sight, this is the book for you.

4.5 Stars-Pleasantly Surprised

When I choose books for review it's usually a few weeks or months in advance. Skyscrapers & Camelot was up on the list and just from the title I wondered what made me look closer at it. After reading the blurb I was reminded of the long lost loves reuniting and upon finishing the book, the title is such a cute fit.

From the start up until around the 50% mark, Skyscrapers & Camelot was too sweet for me. Maybe even too proper in the writing. Our long lost loves

Keegan James and Aimee Brennan were best friends and neighbors growing up until Keegan left for college. Aimee never heard from him again and now, 8 years later, she is on her way to his architecture firm to do an interview for her magazine. With a starting point like that, I was intrigued. A few pivotal past scenes are shared, but the present time is the main focus, all in Aimee's POV. I found Aimee to be very likable and relatable. She works hard and has a very down to earth personality that i ...more

As a debut novel, this was a good one. Of course, a lot of people love the premise of this book. you know that love you find when you're still a child? The kind of love that grows with age, breaks your heart, ruins you for other loves, and comes back into your life after many years? Yeah... We all love that kind of love story.

Review of Skyscrapers and Camelot by Mindy A Carter
4 stars
Aimee was lucky enough to find her soul mate when she needed him most. She was a little girl, hell-bent on running away from home and her neighbor Keegan was determined to go along and keep her safe. He kept her safe that day, and every day up until the day he left for college taking pieces of her heart with him.
The night before Keegan left for college Aimee kissed him. She was sure based on his reaction that she was the cause of their fa

I read this book very quickly. It is a good story. I love the best friends from childhood story. It is so sweet and you just have to sigh when you get those stories. Keegan and Aimee meet when they are 6 and 7. Keegan decides from the moment they meet that he is going to take care of Aimee forever. They lose touch when he leaves for college and you know that Aimee is heartbroken. They finally meet again as adults and it is a pretty funny meeting. You will have to read it to see why I thought it

She decides to run away and meets Keegan. The 7 year old boy who will forever change her life.

First Thought (post completion of reading): Well, darn!

Skyscrapers and Camelot - a great name for a pretty darn good book.

I liked this story. At first, I thought it was going to be mild and mellow with no real drama, but I was certainly surprised by the turn of events. Keegan and Aimee...and Gretchen. That triangle was explosive, to say the least. I don't know what Keegan was thinking. Omission is never good!

I am a little on the fence on how to review this book. I enjoyed it, I really did. It leaves you with a major cliffhanger and I can't help but feel we are missing a lot of the story.

This is a second chance romance between two "soul mates," Keegan and Aimee. Of course there is the villain you just love to hate, Gretchen. Aimee is a weaker h than I usually like. She seems to ignore (read stick her head in the sand) key warning signs that Keegan is less than honest with her. Keegan is very cryptic.

Aimee and Keegan a story of second chances. A romance that shows love can overcome any obstacle if your love is strong. Oh boy did they have obstacles, time another woman and trust issues. Yeah you could say the drama that surrounded our two lovers was difficult and would have crumbled the tallest of buildings, but their foundations were solid.

Keegan & Aimee met as children living across the street and became the best friends. Things changed with Keegan starting college and now it's been 8 years since they have seen one another.

This book really kept me guessing. Yes, it was that type of book might I add it really good. We start off with Aimee and Reese. They are working on an important article. They are going to be interviewing Keegan James, CEO of James Architecture. Aimee and Keegan go way back. They haven't laid eyes on each other for about eight years. It was like young love that was lost long ago. Now that they reunite can they be able to get back to that. Do they still have enough ashes to keep to spark fire agai ...more
