I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

This book was such a pleasant surprise. I liked the sound of the original premise, I haven't read many books about spirits/ genie's, so the blurb made me curious and I eventually decides to give this book a try. And I am glad I did as it was an enjoyable read. It gives a original twist to the genie genre and while it could be a tad predictable at times, there were some twists I didn't see coming as well. The author has a nice writing style and on

Forever Hers is a delightful paranormal romance about a woman whose life was forever changed when she was gifted with a wooden cube by an old lady who was her mother's new neighbor. It was no ordinary wooden cube as it contained a Spirit of Saoradh who goes by the name of Blayne and he has the ability to grant any of Holly's wishes, that was, within reason.

While Holly and Blayne didn't get along at first, their fights turned into banters and their attraction for each other grew stronger and the

I have been a bit behind in getting some of these reviews out, sometimes I get excited and read the new books on the list instead of reading the ones that I have had for a while. So this last week, I have been working on reading and catching up on my review list. Trying to clear it out before accepting any more books. So this is a bit late, you will have to forgive me.

I do have to say I have no idea where to start on this book. What I do know

I was given a free copy of this book for my honest opinion.

This is a different style of paranormal story. The story of a spirit, Blayne, being punished eternally for a human past he can no longer remember. How does a spirit get redemption when he cannot remember what horrible thing he did to earn his eternal damnation?

Holly is devastated when her neighbor, best friend and father-figure dies. After the burial, an old woman gives her a box without any openings. The woman tells her that Max wante

Forever Hers by Caroline Cairn is the first in the Spirits of Saoradh series. This story focuses on Holly and Blayne. We open with a funeral for Maxim, a man who practically raised Holly when her own father abandoned his family. There’s more to Max than even Holly knew, and when an elderly lady named Adelaide shows up to give Holly a special box Max left for her, strange things begin happening.

(PureTextuality.com)A Genie in a bottle? That is pretty much what I thought I was getting with this read. I sort of got that, but I also got a good romance, as well. And no he’s not a Genie, and there’s no bottle rubbing going on either! Lots of wishes are happening though.

Holly has just lost the next door neighbor, Max, that she grew up adoring. When she is given a box at the funeral by a lady that has already moved into Max’s house, she is pretty surprised. It’s just a small wooden box. Once s

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Forever Hers isn’t your typical paranormal romance…it’s more.

Holly gets binded to Blayne (a kind of ghost/genie) without her knowledge, but it doesn’t take long for her to get used to having him around, at least not after she accepts the fact that she’s not hallucinating. She is a little creeped out by him doing ghost things like floating and hanging around upside down, but when he acts more human she’s drawn to him as i

What a good way to start the new year!! This was such a good book!! I expected I'd like it, but not as much as I did. I literally got this done after two sessions (the first time I had to go back to work - boo!).

Holly is given an amazing gift after her kindly neighbor passes away: a "genie". However, this is no a-typical "genie". He is technically a spirit who is being punished for his past life, they are bonded for life (unlimited wishes!), he is hot, he is not the only one, and he needs to be

Holly meets Adelaide who gives Holly an Eintridh, a magical wooden box as a last gift from Max. Adelaide also makes a motion over Holly’s eye and tells her that is the key to the box.

New to me author.

Holly was handed a box at the burial of her dear Maxim. With the box came a letter for her. She read and was shocked to find it said the box was magical. Adelaide the older woman who delivered the box is hesitant about giving Holly information but feeds her just enough. Adelaide also lets her know she has been gifted the

Forever Hers. This is one of those books which evoke literal feelings in me as the characters went through a rollercoster of emotions themselves.
The concept was really nice with a twist which I personally liked a lot. Holly seemed like an egoistic girl in the beginning, but that was before she revealed her true being in the little things she did for Blayne. And Blayne on the other hand, no matter how much I say about him, it will never be enough. The way his emotions and feelings were said made

I loved every moment

Forever Hers was an enchanting and frustrating read. I loved the characters, the story, and the twists. There are some things you just never see coming.

Holly has loved and been beaten down by it. The father like figure in her life has recently passed and her romantic life is a bust what is love any way? All of that will soon change when a stranger gives her a gift she never thought possible. Blayne and Holly's love story was intense and frustrating to say the least. I could

I chose this book based on it's paranormal genre, I am a big fan of all things weird! I enjoyed the story behind each character and the way they all connected throughout, although I did find Holly a little bit annoying to begin with. I also felt really quite sorry for Blayne, as rude and abrupt as he sometimes seemed his back story was emotional and sad and I was glad to see he was able to move on from this eventually. My reason for giving this book 4 stars rather than 5 is really based on the e ...more

Holly receives a wooden cube as a gift from an elderly lady who happens to be her mother’s new neighbour.

The cube contains Blayne, a Spirit of Saoradh only she can see and touch.
Blayne is a playful, headstrong ghost with no recollection of his human past and an ability to grant Holly’s wishes whenever she calls for him. Those wishes are limited though, because how would she explain a brand new car? Through their incessant banter, Holly and Blayne grow close

Review ExcerptFor a debut effort, its a pretty good book. Its not outstanding in any way, nor is the plot unique enough to stand out in a reader’s mind, but its a good way to drift through a few hours, and (in my case) recharge my perpetually horror-blackened miserly heart. What girl wouldn’t wish for a flat stomach? And Blayne was described well enough to give me a *cough* nice mental picture.

This is the first paranormal book I've read in so long I wasn't sure if I would like it but I really did. I loved both of the characters and the chemistry that they had. I did think the way holly took to being able to see Blayne so quickly was a bit abrupt i would have been in shock for weeks not being able to process it on such little information from Adelaide. The ending of the book was a shocker I shouted in frustration when learning that Holly and Blayne would not remember each other but was ...more

Paranormal/Spiritual reads are not my usual choice - In fact, I think this is the first I've ever chosen to read. Suffice to say I'm glad I did. The story was gripping, the characters believable and the chemistry fantastic! Given my lack of knowledge in paranormal activity, I feel it would have taken me rather longer to accept delivery of a spirit into my life but I guess Holly was only given her gift because she already had a basis of belief and acceptance so I chose to overlook the mere hours ...more

I wanted to love this, but I just didn't. The main character was self-centred and annoying, which made it harder to enjoy, and the support cast didn't do much for me either. My main gripe though was the giant gaping plot problems. (view spoiler) ...more

Born in France, I studied hotel management before spending a couple of years in England, Ireland and Belgium.
In 2001, hubby and I settled close to the Loch Ness monster in the Highlands of Scotland, and soon, two children and one dog joined us.

Dramatic scenes are my favourite to work on, which is perhaps a reminiscence of those teenage years when every single ones of my stories had to end in epi
