But what he didn’t know was that Wren had a personal revenge mission of her own…

Roarke and Wren are unbelievably hot together! Continue reading

Review: Cinderella by Mike Klaassen

garden

This reimagining of a well loved fairy tale is amazing! I love how the author breathed life into the cardboard characters in the fairy tale. Even the prince has some sidekicks that we didn’t know about and Cinderella’s fairy godmother is of a different sort. I enjoyed this revisit into my childhood, and I believe every kid should know this version of the tale as well.

However, and it may be the adult romance junkie in me speaking, but I wish we could have seen more of Ella’s interaction with the prince, instead of her um…(spoiler) to know his thoughts and intentions. If they had talked more, it would’ve strengthened the bond and connection between them. She could’ve opted not to use her ability when it comes to the prince. Also, how Ella got the prince to fall for her? Romance readers all over the world would revolt. On the relationship development side, it’s definitely not recommended for it to happen that way. I wouldn’t have believed in their relationship or that it would even last, unless through sorcery. That said, fairy tales are not known for in-depth character and romantic development (if there’s any romance at all), so perhaps this story is merely staying true to its origins. Continue reading

Top Reads in 2017

Here are my top reads in 2017. Definitely highly recommended too!

 

It’s always a great pleasure to read any one of Tessa Dare’s books, not the least of which is the witty banter between her main characters, and her prose, which is also witty, refreshing and almost poetic….THE DUCHESS DEAL is more than the fairy tale; it goes much deeper to plumb at the hurt and insecurity on Ash’s side, and how, underneath his beastly appearance, he is very much a man in need of love…The entire story is sweet and romantic, and this book is going right on my keeper shelf! Definitely worth a reread or two!

WINTERSONG is magical, with a fairy tale atmosphere that is heightened by the lovely, lyrical writing. Though there are echoes of Labyrinth (my favorite childhood movie!), the author took it beyond that to create a story and characters that are unforgettable and that will live in you long after you have finished reading the book. I can say definitely that WINTERSONG is a book that will go on my keeper shelf and that I will reread over and over until I have wrung the last bit of magic from it.

LOVE STORY is a hot, sexy romantic read with unforgettable characters and plenty of angst. Ooh, the angst! I love it and I love this story a lot. This is definitely going on my keeper shelf!…I love that the author gave us two individuals who are relatable in terms of financial and emotional aspects. Who hasn’t scrimped due to budget considerations, or looked for cheap places to stay when traveling? I also love how human and flawed Reece is, a standout among arrogantly confident alpha males. Definitely a must read!

DISENCHANTED is one of the best fairy-tale retellings of Cinderella I’ve read. Susan Carroll writes a compelling tale that is full of magic and enchantment, yet also flawed and very human characters. Needless to say, I was in love from the first page, and I can’t wait to read more! It was great to see the author spin the original tale into something vivid and rich, lush and three-dimensional. You can bet I’m looking forward to the next book/s in the series!

THE WRONG KIND OF COMPATIBLE is amazingly hot, funny and intense with unforgettable, geeky characters. Two thumbs up!! I’ve always liked geeky characters, but Cassie and Drew are the best I’ve read so far. I love their banter, especially the geeky one-liners that were so full of sexual innuendos–whether intentional or not. Each interaction, each word that comes out of their mouth reinforces that these are brilliant, brainy people, and I have to applaud the author for being able to totally immerse the reader in her world. Highly recommended! This is definitely going on my keeper shelf!

I’m speechless with wonder, with awe at the twists and turns the story had taken. The twists and turns are shocking and the revelations astounding. Everything happened very fast, leaving me stunned. I couldn’t turn the virtual pages fast enough. And the very last scene!! All I can say is book #3 is going to be very interesting indeed.
