Feels Like Forever by Katie Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

1st off let me put down my box is tissues as I begin this review. I love a book that pulls such a visceral reaction out of me that it leaves me in sobs and tears pool beneath my neck from the streams of tears I can’t stop. By the end of this book, I was a mess. I am still a mess. The book is like a train wreck in so many ways. I just knew that Michales was leaving clues for me along the way leaving chills up my arms warning me that one box of tissues was not going to be enough. Michaels even warned me in her Goodreads review, but no I had to go ahead and read it, stubbornly. I loved so many things about this book. I loved the female friendships who love so much and so hard that they are more like sisters. It is so easy for girls to be catty, but Evie’s crew were inseparable.

So, why a 4 you may ask? Honestly, it is mainly for two big reasons. 1st the first 40% of the book read like almost a newspaper or biographical account instead of a story. I didn’t feel the build or the connection until later in the book. There was way too much telling than showing. Then 2ndly, Luke blurts out a secret to Evie VERY early on in the book. I know there are people who blurt out things, but this was a biggie and felt that I needed more development.

If you can get past that (which I hope you can), then be ready for some serious emotions. This book is about so many lessons in life for any age. Definitely worth a read!

When Life Gets in the Way by Ines Vieira-young adult romance books

I liked this book a lot so to rate it as a 4 is really not fair. I would say more like a 4.5 really. The book pulled me in right away from the moment Cass and Isaac met. I knew their relationship would be explosive from his first perusal of her body and her whipping him into shape from the first moment of contact. The book took me on a range of emotions and had totally enthralled to the last word. I was so glad there was a little follow-up at the end, so don’t think when it ends with their story that it is over. There is a little peek into Jess and another peek into Nicky.

Now let’s talk frustrations. I know I am an English teacher and not everyone goes crazy over grammar and spelling, and I know I make my fair share of mistakes but there were mistakes all over the place. It needs one more run through, but Ines has a flare for writing and my number one rule is that if a book can bring me to sobs and make me gooey then it rates right up there with the high 4s and 5s. So, this book is definitely worth a read, just grab some tissues and get ready for the emotional ride.

Read my review of this contemporary mafia romance:

Every single time I read a book by Tijan, I am not disappointed. I always spend the night fighting between wanting to finish a book or sleep. Reading always wins out. Tijan’s books are like my catnip. I need it and crave. As soon as I see one of T’s books out, I buy it immediately. If you have never bought a Tijan book, stop whatever you are doing and buy one right now! There is probably one free lurking around out there or on sale. But back to this book. Mafia books usually get on my nerves, but I loved the twists and turns this book took. My head got dizzy waiting for the next secret to be revealed, but what I love most is when a couple comes together making each other better, stronger, softer, and better; that’s Tijan’s specialty anyway. So, do I recommend this book? Heck yea!

Making the Grade by Kelly Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 starsMaking the Grade

Normally, I am not into book sets because there is not enough connection for me, but Collins does an outstanding job connecting all the characters making it feel like a crazy sexually dysfunctional family. The concept is not original in the fact that women and men are trading “time” for money, but the company itself is unusual. The men and women on both sides are there for different reasons, and I loved all the main characters. I loved seeing them grow and learn and most of learn to love and accept themselves. This book gets an A+++ from me. I am so glad that I have Amazon’s KU plan because I get all these wonderfully interesting books for one low price, and I love it since I am a voracious reader. This collection is well worth any price.

About the Author

Kelly Collins writes with the intention of keeping the love alive. Always a romantic, she is inspired by real-time events mixed with a dose of fiction. She encourages her readers to reach the happily ever after but bask in the afterglow of the perfectly imperfect love.

Kelly lives in Colorado at the base of the Rocky Mountains with her husband of twenty-five years, their two dogs, and a bird that hates her.

In her spare time, she enjoys walking the trails and visiting the mining towns like Cripple Creek. She likes to think it’s the ambience that brings her there and not the amazing slot machine in the back of the casino.

In the winter, you’ll find her tucked into herseat at The World Arena cheering her beloved Colorado College Tigers Hockey Team.  After several losing seasons she knows there’s a win coming soon. Kelly is no fair weather fan.

She has three amazing children, and she wonders how they all turned out to be engineers when only the creative side of her brain seems to work. She just chalks it up to the engineering genes her husband contributed to the mix.

Creative minds need an outlet and writing books is where she focuses her excess energy.

I am so in love and obsessed with this series, I know I will go into some type of depression when it is over. It is sooooooo good. I am in a constant state of ups and downs and all a rounds! Sometimes I am so mad I could just scream along with Syn, and the next I am heading for the cold showers or grabbing for my husband because the books are scorching! Hutchins is a master writer. She knows how to create a deadly, beautiful world made of magic, jealousy, and destiny weaved into the perfectly amazing story. The plot keeps me coming back for more. Since I finished this book last night, I couldn’t stop, I grabbed book 3 and am already half way done. So, keep checking back for my teasers into the next books. So, glad it is a long weekend.

Oh my gosh! One of the best books I have read in a long time! It has been a long time since I have read this type of book. I used to be a big Laurell K Hamilton fan, but I got behind and took a break. This author reminds me so much of her minus the multiple sex partner, but hey it’s only book 1. This book had it all. I laughed, yes, I actually giggled a few times. Then, the tears-definitely have a box of tissues ready. Next a few times of horror and outrage where I was literally yelling at the characters (that’s when you know things are getting good). Then, finally I had to take a few cold showers due the angst and ignited passion between Syn and Ryder. I am so intrigued with the book and want to know so much what Ryder’s secret is that even though I have a pile of books I need to read, I have to read book two right now. So, look for book two review soon.

What a wild ride! I want book 2 right now, pretty please????? What in the world will be in store for Jack and Lexie? Two broken souls brought together and thrown together and back apart over and over again. This book is so amazing as they help each other heal in many ways. Jack teaches Lex to loosen up and live again and gets that heart beating again, and the whole novel I just kept thinking “kiss dang it. Just do it. You are killing me here!” I haven’t felt that much angst since I was a teenager myself. Then, Lex tries to heal his leg and injuries, and she encourages him to be a better man. Where or where is book 2? Susan, send it to me now!

Meet Susan Daugherty

I’ll be the first to admit: I may have a little war going on between my right brain and left brain.

My entire life, I loved to read voraciously and write story after story. I won the English Dept scholarship at my high school… then I promptly went into the Sciences at the University of Kentucky. I had fallen in love with physical therapy and I made it my career.

I absolutely love my PT profession and all the years that I have invested in treating patients….but something always nagged in my head that said I should let my creative side loose as well. I needed to get back to WRITING!

I sat down and wrote my novel, Groupie in a six month time frame on a Netbook- I kid you not. That’s a tiny laptop, y’all. It was so long that I wound up with two books and Groupie was a series!

Now, I have the best of both worlds so both sides of my brain are happy.

Aside from those two jobs, I’m raising a husband and two children! Luckily, I thrive on multi-tasking and it all works out in our crazy life.

I love all things Southern, lifelong friendships, date nights, and reading my kids to sleep.

This book was really awesome! I enjoyed every part of this book. It has suspense, drama, jealousy, deception, and some serious sexual tension. It did leave me with many questions, but the story was just so good that in the end it really did not matter and might be resolved later. I would really like to see a story with Rachel in it, but it looks like book two is going to reach into the werewolf world, so I shall wait. But back to this book. Fast, great read that I highly recommend. Happy reading!

Heather C. Myers

Full disclosure: I am an acquired taste. I’m a typical blonde Orange County suburbanite who says ‘like’ more than necessary, laughs loud and probably obnoxiously, and loves to dance in the rain. I’m a 26 year old college graduate with more than a few tricks up my sleeve, and I also happen to be a pretty big Ducks fan. Oh, and I’m a writer. Like, for real.

I don’t speak in third person (normally) nor do I wear glasses (except when I’m feeling particularly mischievous). I’m lucky to have found my soul mate at the ripe old age of 22, even though he frustrates me on purpose to get a reaction out of me. We live near Disneyland, have two rambunctious female puppies, and have a beautiful baby girl. He has two amazing boys, and has gotten me hooked on Smallville, watching soccer (okay, okay FOOTBALL – FC Barcelona, baby!), and Cancun Juice.

First, let me say it has been years since I have actually spent $5 on a book. So, that has to tell you something right there. The blurb grabbed my attention, and I felt compelled to read this book. Even better was that I was not let down. It was a great integration of the seven deadly sins with the and a little bit like the seven dwarfs now that I think about it. Coral is everything good in a main character. She is good and loving despite a horrific life and still even prays and is brave enough to fight for family and love. I would love to see more of a series of this book and see these brothers grow and learn to love. Great read and even better adventure.

In many ways, this book tied up many questions from book one. It explained away Mackenzie’s leaving, but, as a mother, it still makes absolutely no sense to me. I still consider her a selfish cow and the lasting affects on Grace will be insurmountable, which I am guessing will rear its head in book three. And Lord I can only shake my head at Weston. It’s like he almost caused the whole mess with Trent and Delaney. Goodness, eyeing Trent’s woman from the moment he saw her. I wanted to smack Weston upside his head! Anyways! The book was a fast read and has lots of twists and turns but not as much as book one-thank goodness. Bring on book 3-I’m ready!
