The Strongest Steel by Scarlett Cole

MY REVIEW: Somehow, while looking for something to read on my Kindle, Cole’s novel called to me. Sometimes I do listen, sometimes I don’t, but in this case I’m so glad I did! Harper’s is a tragic but beautiful story, I don’t think I would’ve had the tenacity to come back from what she went […]

A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson

MY REVIEW: I had been meaning to read A Pound of Flesh for a long time but, for some reason, I never got myself to do it. What a big mistake! Kat has suffered a loss I would not wish to anyone, and she is doing right by the promise she made to her father. […]

Days Like This by Danielle Ellison

MY REVIEW: The past always comes back to haunt us, no matter how hard we try to run away or forget. This is a lesson Cassie Harlen has learned very well, and I’m pleased to say that I really liked getting to know the complex being that Cassie is. Her past is very complicated, emotional, and […]

The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene

MY REVIEW: Having previously read The Seafront Tea Room, I already had a vague idea of what I could expect from this other novel. However, Greene always manages to entice her readers, and I was swept away in a wonderful world of vintage tea cups and car boot sales. Jenny, Maggie and Alison are three women […]

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

MY REVIEW: Before I delve into my thoughts on this beautifully written piece of work, I feel it’s right to be eternally grateful to Arrow and, more specifically to Clare Kelly, for granting me the chance to review this book even though my blog is still relatively small. Thank you! ❤ I won’t completely compare it […]

Between Everything and Us by R..

Between Everything and Us by Rebecca Paula

MY REVIEW: Oh my, what a beautiful and excruciating story! This is the classic enemies-turned-friends story, but what a twist! I admit I was secretly rooting for Mati and Beau from the beginning because Mati is such a fascinating character—with so many shades of complexity—and Beau is… well, Beau. How can you not be seduced […]

Wrecked by J.B. Salsbury

Wrecked by J.B. Salsbury

MY REVIEW: I’ve never read anything by Salsbury before, and the blurb really caught my attention, especially because I really enjoy reads involving military men. Aden is a broken man, and you immediately start feeling for him from page one. I cannot imagine what it feels like to go through what he went through. Reading those […]

Clutch by Lisa Becker

MY REVIEW: I had the pleasure of beta read part of this story and, besides being honoured to have been asked such task, I really thought that the concept of comparing men to handbags was very interesting. Caroline is a single handbag designer in LA who goes through a series of disastrous relationships that she […]

A Heart of Time by Shari J. Ry..

A Heart of Time by Shari J. Ryan

 MY REVIEW: Once again, Ryan delivers a truly beautiful story. Heartbreaking from start to end, A Heart of Time is the epitome of true love in its purest form. The characters are so well developed and it feels like reading about someone you’re very close to, thanks to all the tiny little things, gestures, and […]
