Powerful Story

Something To Dream On - Diane Rinella

"I received this book from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily reviewed this book and this is my honest review."

 

Truly inspiring tale with a very powerful message that will leave you believing in miracles and second chances. It deals with issues that have touched each and every one of us in some way or another. I was overwhelmed by the emotions this story evoked in me. It made me laugh, cry and ponder the challenges we all face. It left me with a sense of empowerment that I too can make the world a better place and that compassion is what we all should strive for. That no matter what we all all worthy. I would highly recommended this book to all.

Great Read

Chasing Marisol (Blueprint to Love Book 3) - Lauren Giordano

"I received a copy of this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily reviewed this book and this is my honest review."

 

When I first received this book I wasn't aware that it was the third book in the Blueprint to Love series. Although I hadn't read the first two books it didn't matter as they are standalone and can be read in any order. That being said, I loved this book and will definitely be reading Trusting Jake and Falling for Ken which are the first two books in this series.

 

I commend the author, Lauren Giordano, for writing about such important social issues as women's shelters, homelessness and abuse with such emotion and artistry. The characters she's created are realistic and heartwarming. They will grab your attention immediately and make you wish for a happy ending.

 

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romantic stories that have realistic storylines and characters who must overcome heartbreak and hard times to find love.

Outstanding Series

Out of the Box Regifted - Jennifer Theriot

"I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily reviewed this book and this is my honest review."

 

WOW... What an amazing follow up to Out of the Box Awakening, Jennifer Theriot's first novel in this incredible series. It is the continuation of the beautiful love story between Olivia and Ash....and so much more!

 

I absolutely adore all of the characters in this series. They are not only true to life but they are also characters that are easy to care about. I know I for one have fallen in love with them all as I am sure you will too (especially Todd!)

 

I highly recommend this series to anybody who enjoys a heartwarming romance filled with joy, heartache and full of passion. I am looking forward to reading Out of the Box Everlasting which is the next book in this awesome series.

Outstanding Story of Redemption

Something Good - Darlene Deluca

"I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily reviewed this book and this is my honest review."

 

What a beautifully written romantic story about forgiveness, the ability to move past unspeakable tragedies, redemption and the pursuit of happiness.

 

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is willing to forget about everything else for a while. This book has such well developed characters that I found it very hard to put down. I wanted to keep reading to find out if the main character is ever able to forgive the heartbreak of her past and move into the future she so deserves. The interactions between the characters make them easy to relate too. They are true to life characters in real life situations.

 

I would love to see this author continue Mandi and Lane's story with another book.....Maybe a series is possible?

OH and AH Forever!

Out of the Box Awakening - Jennifer Theriot

I received this book from EBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

 

Out of the Box Awakening is the first in a three book series. It is a beautifully written story about second chances and starting over. It proves that life is constantly changing and that love can be found at any age.

 

I really enjoyed the storyline and richly developed characters. I loved the interactions between them. I found myself laughing when they laughed and crying when they cried. When an author can illicit such emotion from me, the reader, they have done an amazing job.

 

I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys second chance romance stories that are not only about starting over but also about real life family interactions. I will definitely be reading Out of the Box Regifted which is the next book in this series.

"Magical" One Night Stand

Laguna Beach: One Night in Laguna (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Magical Matchmaker Book 2) - Melissa Keir

I received this book from EBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

 

One Night in Laguna is one of the Kindle Worlds Novellas set in the same location as Kaira Rouda's Laguna Beach series. The story is about Melanie, a school teacher whose fiancé left her after getting someone else pregnant and Cole, a former reality show actor and single father whose wife left him and their daughter Rose after receiving the devastating news that Rose had leukemia.

 

It is a very short story about two wounded souls coming together for a "magical" one night stand. Their connection and physical attraction is felt instantaneously.

 

Even though I believe in love at first sight, I felt the storyline was too rushed to the point of unbelievable. I would have liked it much better had it not felt so rushed. However, on a positive note, I did like the plot and the author's writing style and will be checking out other stories written by this author.

Do you believe in fate?

That Unforgettable Kiss (Kissed By Fate) (Volume 1) - Tamara Ferguson, DS Williams

I received this book from EBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

 

When fourteen year old Kate Callahan's terminally ill best friend tells Kate about her future and that she will fall in love with one single kiss, Kate is not sure she believes her friend's normally on target predictions. Fast forward five years, Kate now working at her father's construction company, meets Michael Murphy. Michael, the son of a family friend, has come to Crystal Rock Wisconsin from Chicago to intern at the Callahan's construction company for the summer. There is an instant attraction between Kate and Michael that neither can deny... They share a "single unforgettable kiss", however will their insecurities keep them apart?

 

The story that follows is filled with romance, mystery, intrigue and suspense. It is a story that I would recommend to others who enjoy a well written novel that contains all of these elements. This is the second book that I have read by Tamara Ferguson and I know it will not be my last.

Love at First Sight

Laguna Beach: Last Night in Laguna (Kindle Worlds Novella) - C.M. Albert

I received this book from EBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

 

Last Night in Laguna is one of the ten Kindle Worlds Novellas based upon Kaira Rouda's original Laguna Beach series. It is a romantic story about a chance encounter that proves love really can happen at first sight.

 

Bexley Rue meets Kai Donovan the night before she is to leave Laguna Beach and move to New York to help Vaughn, her sick sister. There is an immediate attraction to each other that neither can deny. They decide to spend one "epic" night together and make the most of what little time they have left. The story that follows will have you questioning whether or not fate really does play a part in shaping our future.

 

I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys a quick romantic read that will leave you wishing this author would write a sequel.

A Love That Was Meant To Be

Laguna Beach: Reckless In Laguna (Kindle Worlds Novella) - Barbara Ankrum

Reckless in Laguna is one of the ten Kindle World Novellas set in the same location as Kaira Rouda's original Laguna Beach series. The story is about lost love and the possibility of second chances.

 

Even though Becca Howard and Nio Reyes were from very different social backgrounds they were very much in love until Nio left without so much as a goodbye. Now ten years later they are reunited in Laguna Beach for a mutual friends wedding. Will they be able to see past the lies and deception of the past and build a future together?

 

I hadn't read the original Laguna Beach series before reading this spin-off. However, not having read the original stories did not distract or take anything away from this well written novella. The story was easy to read and easy to follow. The characters were well developed and I really enjoyed the storyline. I will definitely not only be going back to read the original series, but I will be reading all of the Kindle World novellas that are set in Laguna Beach each of which is written by a different author.

 

I plan on reading more from this talented author and encourage readers who enjoy romance stories with a second chance theme to give this book a try.

A-Positive(ly) Fun Vampire Romance

— feeling vampire
Bite Somebody - Sara Dobie Bauer

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

 

I really enjoyed this refreshing take on the vampire/paranormal/romance genre. The story is not only original but it is downright good. The main character, Celia a newly turned vampire, is upset because she has not transformed into the vampiric beauty she has envisioned she would become. She lacks the confidence and finesse she had hoped being a vampire would bring. Not only does she see a shrink to help her cope with everything she even "buys" her blood supply from a hospital blood bank employee!

 

It isn't until an unlikely friendship begins with Imogene, an over the top "say it like it is" fellow vampire, that Celia begins to "transform". With Imogene's help she begins to become more confident and even begins to date her ex-surfer neighbor Ian. Once Celia emerges from her shell the antics begin! Danny, the vampire who turned Celia into a vampire, shows up and Celia must defend all she holds dear.

 

I look forward to reading more from this author and I hope the sequel will be coming soon.

Heartwarming And Emotional Story

The Road Leads Back (Stonehill Romance) - Marci Boudreaux

What began as a one night stand turns into an absolutely beautiful love story. It restored my belief in the power of true love.

 

Kara at seventeen finds herself pregnant after a one night stand with Harry. Unwelcome at her parents house, scared and afraid she flees to Harry's house hoping his mother will contact him at college. Harry's mother, thinking she is protecting her son, sends Kara away with the promise she will inform her son of the baby. Kara, who has now moved away, continues to send letters and pictures in the hopes that one day Harry will send for them. However, because of his mother's insecurities and fear, Harry is never told about Kara or the baby.

 

Kara and Harry reunite after 27 years, each unaware of the lies and deception that have kept them apart. The story that follows will definitely pull at your heart. It is full of raw emotions and the possibility that love really can conquer all.

 

I look forward to reading the next book in the Stonehill Romance series and would highly recommend this book to anybody who believes in the power of true love.
