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!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

The review below explains this short contemporary romance writer and book perfectly:

 

 

Verified Purchase
Jamaica-born Pennsylvania author Patrice M. Foster comes from an abusive background, having been abandoned by first her mother who fled to America to escape her abusive husband only to be deserted by the father resulting in Patrice and her siblings been placed in abusive foster homes. At age twelve she with her siblings were unsuccessfully reunited with their mother, returned to their father became homeless, and yet survived.
Patrice, incredibly, finished school and moved to New Jersey where she entered an LPN program 1986. After graduating, she relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she furthered her career by becoming an RN in 1998. She continued her education by pursuing a BSN program at Immaculate University. Aware of the poor treatment encountered by nurses, in 2000, she established her company, Respect Medical Services, through which she committed herself to improve the working conditions and compensation of medical personnel.

Her belief was that nurses who were treated and compensated as professionals were better able to perform as compassionate caregivers, thereby creating an environment beneficial to the physical and emotional wellbeing of their patients. Patrice’s greatest sense of accomplishment was achieved by securing employment for others. Though she closed her business in 2004, she continues to work as a nurse, as well as traveling the path to healing and self-discovery.

In Patrice’s early books she transforms this injurious life into stories that are heart rending, but now, in keeping with her background of survival against tough odds she turns her writing to Romances – each new story shares much of what she has experienced and has provided extraordinary growth.

The synopsis of this very brief (33 pages) novella follows: ‘When hot and handsome Vince Moretti walks into Ashley Santoro’s life, she ultimately has to decide whether she will continue to hold onto the bad-girl, biracial routine that has her looking for love in superficial relationships only—or if what she has with this star basketball player is true love. Emotionally neglected and abandoned by her mother and father, the Ashley series details a courageous journey of a young adult fielding her way through alcoholism and overeating into her own discovery of how to love and how to be loved. Accused of soliciting sex from three New York Knicks players at a party in Manhattan, Ashley abandons her promising new relationship with Vince, a partnership that she feels she does not deserve. Caught up in a cycle of self-defeat, will Ashley continue her downward spiral and ultimately sabotage her first true love, as well?’

Patrice understands character development well and a times her prose is poetically subtle – ‘When Ashley misted her hybrid orchid— a bright red Cattleya Circle of Life— she momentarily forgot that her own life had no love. Its brilliant top petals fanned open within twelve hours one evening, captured by a time-release video that she’d painstakingly prepared for extra credit. Even her botany teacher voiced amazement at the sheer size of its lateral sepals and vibrant yellow stigmatic surface— the orchid itself, seven inches in diameter— all carefully cultivated by a senior-high student with a reputation among peers and teachers alike for being so implacably rude and angry. Its dorsal sepal cascaded above the rest of the botany projects lined in Edward R. Murrow High’s greenhouse, and for all intents and purposes, Ashley’s plant should’ve withered in sorrow. But it thrived.

Ashley herself believed that meant something— but for the time being, she didn’t know what. Any aspirations, hopes and dreams she’d imagined for herself remained narrowly confined to botany class.’

Patrice knows the right mixture of raw language and tenderness and this is one short but very powerful little romance. Watch her grow. Grady Harp, February 17

 

Bare Bone Love and Suspense – Southern Style

Book Description:
Love
and Suspense – Southern Style
When a skull is found buried in the
courtyard of the Art House during renovations, executive director Meredith
O’Neill is forced to halt the over-budget and oft-delayed project. Working with
architect Kieran Ford has been a nightmare, despite his icy good-looks and
brilliant design. Now that the Art House is declared a crime scene, the entire
project is threatened. Forced to work together in close proximity, Meredith and
Kieran soon find the tensions between them changing into something else
entirely. Still, she can’t help but wonder how long the heat between them will
last, especially when Kieran was once so cold.
Kieran is donating his time and talents
to the Art House renovation, but working with Meredith is driving him crazy,
and his pro bono project is quickly
going south. When the skull of a child is discovered, Kieran must confront his
own loss as well as keep the project, and Meredith, on task.  Keeping his emotions in check proves to be
impossible, and Kieran soon realizes that he is falling for Meredith. When he
is framed for a crime, Kieran must learn to trust again. He and Meredith form
an uneasy alliance as they seek answers to the mystery at the Art House. But
someone is intent on destroying the historic building . . . and won’t hesitate
to harm anyone who gets in the way.
 
Excerpt:
The skull was small, that of a woman or child, the lower jaw
separated in the dirt, as if the mouth had been open during the internment
process. The foreman scraped away at the mud revealing a few bone fragments.
The clenched hand, turned upward, was disarticulated from the arm, as if the
skeleton had thrust its fist in anger at the gods. The man jerked back. It was
definitely a human skull. And this was no cemetery.
“Call the police,” he said to his worker. “And you better call the
architect, too.”
Meredith
stood over the hole, her four-inch heels sinking into the red clay, her linen
dress sticking to her body, slick with perspiration. She could clearly see bits
of bone and the smooth curve of the skull. There were a few longer bones
scattered about and what appeared to be a hand, balled up and reaching to the
sky. The grave was shallow, only a few feet deep, and it was a wonder that the
bones hadn’t appeared sooner. Meredith placed her hands on her hips, resisting
the impulse to jump into the hole and free the remaining skeleton from the dirt
and cradle it in her arms.
“It’s got to be human.” The foreman wiped his brow with a dirty
towel. Red clay smeared his forehead like dried blood.
“It’s a child,” Meredith said. She crouched down, looking closer.
Yes, it had to be a child. She cleared the muck from the back of her throat.
Digging her fingers in the mounded dirt, she felt the soil clump together
before she released it. The resting place for this poor soul. “I called the
police. Did you call the architect?”
The foreman nodded. The courtyard was quiet, the digger now
stopped, the work crew standing idly by, their heads hung in deference to the
grave.
Meredith stood up and brushed the morsels of clay from her
fingers. “I suppose we’ll be delayed again.” She didn’t know what else to say.
Turning her back on the hole, she saw the crowd of workers part and the
architect trudged toward her, his sleeves rolled up in the heat, his expression
that of exasperation. “Hello, Kieran,” she said. She offered her hand to him
even as her back stiffened. Although he was the project manager on this job, he
was still the last person she wanted to see.
“I halted the work. I’m sorry. I know we’re behind schedule
already…” He flung a tube of blue prints to the ground. He had a sheen of
perspiration in his forehead, which he wiped away impatiently. Dressed in
khakis and a button-down shirt, he looked as wilted as Meredith felt.
“The police are on their way.” Meredith stepped back as Kieran
gave her a look and then made his way to the edge of the dig site and looked
in.
“Shit.” He ran his fingers through his fair hair, the strands
sticking together and becoming disarrayed. “I’ve seen this before. In Mosul.
That’s definitely human.”

It’s all about the chemistry.
ROMANCING DR. LOVE
Sterling University #1
Rebecca Heflin
Releasing March 7th, 2017

 

Dr.
Samantha Love says it’s all about the chemistry. A brainy psychology professor
and researcher, Sam has based her entire academic career on the theory that
what we call love is simply a chemical reaction. She is currently running a
study to prove that her compatibility blood test reveals perfect matches—sort
of like an organ donor, but for relationships. No romance required.
 
Along comes
sexy literature professor, Dr. Ethan Quinn, who says it’s all about the
romance. He thinks the pretty psychology professor has taken love and all its
mysteries and reduced it to something as romantic as a cholesterol test, and he
sets out to prove her theory wrong.
 

 

When Ethan
signs up for her study, Sam discovers to her horror, that according to her
compatibility test, they are a perfect match. Sam faces an existential crisis
over her career and her research. If she believes in her science, shouldn’t it
follow that she believes Ethan is her perfect mate? And if she doesn’t believe
he’s her perfect mate, doesn’t that bring into question her research? Her
compatibility test? Her reputation? And her very career?

As Sam struggles with her dilemma, Ethan pursues her with all the romantic
tactics in his arsenal. Will Sam’s theories succumb to his challenge? Or will
Ethan lose the battle for Sam’s heart?

But when a strange woman makes a move on him, and she finds them in what appears to be a mutual, passionate kiss, Patty can’t believe she’s been so foolish.

Outside forces work to keep Patty and Carter apart…

Suspicious of her mother’s recent actions, Patty pushes her to come clean about the setup at the fundraiser. Her jealous ex, Ben, has been blackmailing her mother into helping him ruin her relationship with Carter, and it doesn’t stop at that. Ben shows up at the lake house unwilling to accept no for an answer.

Carter needs to piece his broken life back together, but he’s running out of time…

With so many who want to destroy their happiness, he has to be strong enough to save Patty from an empty, loveless future—or he’ll be nothing more than the broken soldier she used to know.

Author Bio:

Alison Mello is a wife and stay at home mom to a wonderful little boy. She lives with her amazing family in Massachusetts. She loves playing soccer, basketball and football with her son.

After having her son, Alison started reading again and fell in love with Contemporary Romance. Reading made her happy and gave her something to do when she had downtime. As she started to read more, she started to noticed things she really enjoyed in a book and things she didn’t. She began to have ideas for writing one of her own. One day she literally woke up and started writing. She realized that if there was ever a time for her to write, it was now. She had a part time job to give her something to do. The hours at work were slow and she was bored with what she was doing, so while her son was off enjoying his friends over summer vacation she got started.

Alison finished the first book in two weeks and decided that she really enjoyed writing, so she kept going. She already had ideas in mind for books two and three, so she kept writing. That is how the Learning to Love Series was born. Somewhere along the line, one of my Beta readers convinced me that Michael, a character from Finding Love, needed his own story. That is when Alison added the fourth and final book. Alison hopes you enjoy her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.

She’s so glad she started this writing journey and hopes you will stay with her for the ride. Chasing Dreams is scheduled to release in April and the first two books of the Love Conquers Life series will be out this summer!
