Book Review: A Cruel Kind of Beautiful by Michelle Hazen

A Cruel Kind of Beautiful (#1 Sex, Love and Rock n Roll Series) by Michelle Hazen

I want to thank NetGalley and Barclay Publicity for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.

If you can’t get to the Big O, can you get to the happily ever after?

Jera McKnight loves music, swoons for hot guys, but sucks at sex. Jacob Tate is her perfect storm: a pun-loving nude model with a heart as big as his record collection.

When a newspaper-delivery accident lands him in her living room, he’s almost tempting enough to make her forget she’s never been able to please a man—in bed or out of it. Sure, he laughs at her obscure jokes, and he’ll even accept a PG-rating if it means he gets time with her, but he’s also hiding something. And it has everything to do with the off-limits room in his apartment.

Jera pours all her confusion and longing into her drum kit, which pays off when her band lands the record deal of their dreams. Except just like Jacob, it might be too good to come without a catch.

She doesn’t know if her music is good enough to attract a better contract, or if she’s enough to tempt a man like Jacob to give up his secrets, even if they could fix her problems between the sheets. But if this rocker girl is too afraid to bet on herself, she might just end up playing to an empty house.

Fans of Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger or Kylie Scott will love this addictive new series because of its quick sense of humor and adorable found family. Click now if you want to instantly escape into the world of Jera and Jacob’s romance.

I give this book 5 out of 5 Head Banging Stars! I just loved this hilarious and rock worthy romance! Jera was absolutely hilarious and just my type of girl!

She was in a rock band and had a hilarious sarcastic attitude. Jacob was just the perfect guy and totally swoon worthy!

This book was hilarious, had a great plot, fantastic characters, sweet romance and had rock n roll, all that made a rock chick like me have the happiest of feels!

I loved this story and think it was well written. I highly recommend this book, it’s a rock chick’s romance novel masterpiece! P.S. You don’t have to be a rock chick to enjoy this. Lol.

The Only One
Necie Navone
(Brothers of Camelot, #1)
Publication date: December 15th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

The first in the Brothers of Camelot Series: The Only One

Can a man whore whose motto is “One and Done” keep it in his pants long enough to win back the trust of his childhood sweetheart?

Drake, otherwise known as Fitz, was dealt a tragic hand from the beginning. Pain and rejection melted away when a little girl with huge brown eyes, strawberry blonde curls and an explosive personality, walked into his new home and his heart.

Inseparable as kids, she’s literally ripped from his arms when they’re teens. Convincing himself he’s unworthy of her, he closed himself off to all future relationships, refusing to open his heart to anyone else. If only she would come back to him.

Isabella, with her unique personality, is the polar opposite of her rich socialite mother, with a determination and drive to be more than just someone’s country club showpiece.

She returns to her childhood town to start her own business, and prove she doesn’t need her mother, or a man, to feel complete. Thanks to her first love, her father’s betrayal and a slew of bad relationships, she’s locked her heart away, hidden behind her smile and sweet disposition. She’s found peace in her memories of Drake, hoping he’ll finally contact her, or maybe she’ll find the nerve to contact him.

Can their long-lost love be rekindled or do they need a little help from their friends?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

Just as I set the milk in the formerly empty fridge, Drake grabs me from behind, turning me to face him. There’s a twinkle in his eye as he lifts me into his arms. Spinning, he sets me on the huge island as if I weigh nothing at all.

Even as high as the counter is, he’s still just a tiny bit taller than me. At least we’re closer to eye level. Grabbing his tie, I pull him closer, getting lost for a moment in those forest green eyes, I’ve dreamt about being with him like this forever.

“And just what are you doing, putting me up here?”

“You have no idea what you do to me,” he growls. Yes, growls. “I want to taste you so much, Bella. Can’t wait to see you in my shirt, in my bed. Hold you in my arms.

“So many nights I’ve spent in that bed, alone, thinking of calling you, imagining hunting you down and dragging you back to me. But stupidly, I decided to wait, give you the chance to call me, to come back to me,” Drake confesses.

At a loss for words, I continue to gaze into his eyes. Drake leans forward and slides my hair over my shoulder. My breath hitches as he trails kisses from my shoulder, up my neck, to behind my ear.

Book Review: The English Wife

I want to thank NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.

From the New York Times bestselling author, Lauren Willig, comes this scandalous New York Gilded Age novel full of family secrets, affairs, and even murder.

Annabelle and Bayard Van Duyvil live a charmed life: he’s the scion of an old Knickerbocker family, she grew up in a Tudor manor in England, they had a whirlwind romance in London, they have three year old twins on whom they dote, and he’s recreated her family home on the banks of the Hudson and renamed it Illyria. Yes, there are rumors that she’s having an affair with the architect, but rumors are rumors and people will gossip. But then Bayard is found dead with a knife in his chest on the night of their Twelfth Night Ball, Annabelle goes missing, presumed drowned, and the papers go mad. Bay’s sister, Janie, forms an unlikely alliance with a reporter to uncover the truth, convinced that Bay would never have killed his wife, that it must be a third party, but the more she learns about her brother and his wife, the more everything she thought she knew about them starts to unravel. Who were her brother and his wife, really? And why did her brother die with the name George on his lips?

Review: I give this book 3 out 5 Historical Stars! I loved the premise of this story and there was some great unexpected twists. This book had enjoyable characters and a good mystery. I also loved the romance.

Now to the things I disliked; this book was really slow to me and super sad at points. Maybe it’s just because I am in a difficult place but this book could not hold my attention at times and just kind of made me feel down. I liked this book overall, I just wish it wasn’t so drawn out.

I think some people who enjoy a nice historical read would enjoy this book and I am interested in the author’s future works.

“Opening this book is like arming a bomb–the suspense is relentless and the payoff is spectacular. Lead character Alice Vega is sensational–I want to see lots more of her.”–Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series

As addictive, cinematic, and binge-worthy a narrative as The Wire and The Killing, Two Girls Down introduces Louisa Luna as a thriller writer of immense talent and verve.
When two young sisters disappear from a strip mall parking lot in a small Pennsylvania town, their devastated mother hires an enigmatic bounty hunter, Alice Vega, to help find the girls. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched thin by budget cuts and the growing OxyContin and meth epidemic, Vega enlists the help of a disgraced former cop, Max Caplan. Cap is a man trying to put the scandal of his past behind him and move on, but Vega needs his help to find the girls, and she will not be denied.

With little to go on, Vega and Cap will go to extraordinary lengths to untangle a dangerous web of lies, false leads, and complex relationships to find the girls before time runs out, and they are gone forever.

Review: I give this book 3 out of 5 Suspenseful Stars! I liked this book and it was a great read but the only problem was that it triggered me. I was triggered because of certain events that happened in my rough past but I know this can happen with some thrillers and it’s not the book’s fault. The book was very suspenseful and had a very surprising ending that was very unexpected. I am sure that a lot of people would thoroughly enjoy this book but for me it was hard to enjoy it at times because of the triggers. This book was well written and would recommend to readers who love a chilling suspense.

*Three Bookish Cozy Mystery Reviews*

I want to thank NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity! I am catching up on reviews and working on my layout and thought it would be wise to group some together on one post. Bare with me I am new to all this customizable stuff! Lol. These three reviews are for three seperate bookish cozies. Cozy mysteries are perfect for this time of year and a great way to relieve the holiday blues. I hope you guys enjoy my reviews and have a fantastic day!

A Murder for the Books by Victoria Gilbert

bFn9LgMbb0l1u.gif

Fleeing a disastrous love affair, university librarian Amy Webber moves in with her aunt in a quiet, historic mountain town in Virginia. She quickly busies herself with managing a charming public library that requires all her attention with its severe lack of funds and overabundance of eccentric patrons. The last thing she needs is a new, available neighbor whose charm lures her into trouble. Dancer-turned-teacher and choreographer Richard Muir inherited the farmhouse next door from his great-uncle, Paul Dassin. But town folklore claims the house’s original owner was poisoned by his wife, who was an outsider. It quickly became water under the bridge, until she vanished after her sensational 1925 murder trial. Determined to clear the name of the woman his great-uncle loved, Richard implores Amy to help him investigate the case. Amy is skeptical until their research raises questions about the culpability of the town’s leading families… including her own. When inexplicable murders plunge the quiet town into chaos, Amy and Richard must crack open the books to reveal a cruel conspiracy and lay a turbulent past to rest in A Murder for the Books, the first installment of Victoria Gilbert’s Blue Ridge Library mysteries.

I give “A Murder for the Books”5 out of 5 Cozy Stars! I loved this fun and bookish cozy mystery! I am always drawn to books that are book related in some way and it makes me feel proud to be a bibliophile. This book intrigued me from the very first line, “Anyone who claims there are no stupid questions has never worked in a library.” I could relate to this sentence because I am a member of my local Friends of the Library Association and so I do volunteer work at the library, book sales and etc. I also volunteer at a small local bookstore when my body is able and receive new books as payment! Which is awesome! I have been asked some crazy questions to say the least. I loved the characters in this book and thought they were well written. At one point, I thought the book was a bit slow but the surprising twists and everything else made up for it resulting in my 5 star rating. I also loved how descriptive this book was with the historic town!😁 I definitely recommend this cozy!💖📚

Death by a Whisker by T.C. LoTempio

bFn9LgMbb0l1u.gif

Getting used to life back home in Deer Park, North Carolina, Sydney McCall and her right-hand tabby, Toby, are helping her sister Kat run the local animal shelter. Syd and Kat are all excited about the prospect of the shelter’s newest fundraiser: shopping channel queen Ulla Townsend. Shelter admin Maggie Shayne vehemently refuses to have anything to do with the woman, but the fundraiser ensues as planned. That is, until Ulla turns up dead in the middle of the event. The cause of death is determined to be an allergic reaction, but Syd and Toby are sniffing out something fishy. When Syd met Ulla, it was clear she was distasteful and rude. And right before the event, Syd spotted some behind-the-scenes drama between Ulla and her manager. As they begin to investigate, they realize there is no shortage of suspects, and Maggie is at the top of the list. Now Syd and Toby must claw their way to the truth before everything goes paws up at their animal shelter in Death by a Whisker by national bestselling author T. C. LoTempio.

Review: I give this book 4 out of 5 Cozy Kitty Stars! This was a highly enjoyable cozy mystery. I loved how this book was perfect if you are an animal/cat lover. Meow! I have 5 feline friends, 1 canine friend and 2 turtles. So you can definitely say I am an animal enthusiast/crazy cat lady! This book also had some bookish elements that made me oh so happy! The story was well written and was entertaining. The only issue issue I had was that this was second in the series and I have made the mistake of choosing a few books off NetGalley that were part of a series that I haven’t read so the characters were missing a little depth. This is my fault for not paying close enough attention but overall, I highly recommend this book!😄📚

Scones and Scoundrels by Molly MacRae

Inversgail, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands, welcomes home native daughter and best-selling environmental writer Daphne Wood. Known as the icon of ecology, Daphne will spend three months as the author in residence for the Inversgail schools. Janet Marsh and her business partners at Yon Bonnie Books are looking forward to hosting a gala book signing for her. Daphne, who hasn’t set foot in Scotland in thirty years, is . . . eccentric. She lives in the Canadian wilderness, in a cabin she built herself, with only her dog for a companion, and her people skills have developed a few rough-hewn edges. She and the dog (which she insists on bringing with her) cause problems for the school, the library, and the bookshop even before they get to Inversgail. Then, on the misty night they arrive, a young man—an American who’d spent a night in the B above Yon Bonnie Books—is found dead outside a pub. Daphne did her Inversgail homework and knows that Janet and her partners solved a previous murder. She tries to persuade them to join her in uncovering the killer and the truth. To prove she’s capable, she starts poking and prying. But investigating crimes can be murder, and Daphne ends up dead, poisoned by scones from the tearoom at Yon Bonnie Books. Now, to save the reputation of their business—not to mention the reputation of their scones—Janet and her partners must solve both murders. And Daphne’s dog might be able to help them, if only they can get it to stop howling. . .

Review: I give this book 3 out of 5 Cozy Stars! I liked this book, overall. Just like the two previous cozies, this book had a lot to do with bookish things. I really enjoyed the setting and the mystery of the story but the main character just didn’t sit well with me. Rude people just make me a bit uncomfortable. Also it was a bit hard to catch up with all the characters. The book was well written so I look forward to checking out the author’s other books.

Book Review: Two Dukes Are Better Than One by Lorna James~4 Stars

I want to thank NetGalley and Riverdale Avenue Books for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.

Book Blurb:

On the surface, Cromwell Stone and Huxley Brigmore loathed each other. From their school days at Eaton to their ascension as peers of the realm, the two dukes could be counted on to be on opposite sides of an argument. However, only a trusted few knew that the passion they shared was deeper and more forbidden than whose horse would win at Newmarket. Not only did they go through women like they changed their cravats, they did it together.

Lady Sophia Hodges’ obsession with tarot cards and the spirit world would have labeled her as odd, if not for the fact the Queen shares her interest. While searching for a connection with her dead mother, she narrowly avoids a scandal with Cromwell Stone. She blames that erotic manuscript she’s been reading in secret for giving her such unnatural curiosities. When Sophia is powerless to stop her father from gambling away their livelihood, and even less able to stop him from arranging a marriage to Stone, she consults her tea leaves and sees a future rife with passion and other confusing portents.

Little did her father know, she secretly loved another duke. Huxley Brigmore never even looked her way, but she had fallen for him ever since he chased off a gang of ruffians who had been about to accost her. Now, she was going to marry his arch enemy, Stone, and be hated by default.

Only it doesn’t work out quite that way as it seems both men are intent on pursuing her and fulfilling every naughty fantasy a well-bred virgin shouldn’t even be having. When the tarot leads the three of them to try to solve a mystery surrounding Huxley’s family, they face peril and forbidden passion in an attempt to find the perfect future.

Review: I give this book 4 out of 5 Steamy Stars!

I really enjoyed this erotic historical MFM Romance. I loved the main character and thought she was my kind of girl! I love how Lady Sophia says “Why don’t they throw library parties where everybody reads books and wears comfy clothes!” I mean, I think I am in love.

I am also in love with the two male main characters of this story as well. This was more of a novella than a full story and that’s great with me, the kind of girl that likes to ‘hit it and quit it’!

I wish this book was a little longer though so that this fantastic characters would have a bit more depth. There also was this enjoyable mystery subplot that made this really fun. Overall, I highly recommend this steamy read especially if your looking for something a little “freaky, freaky”!

Book Review: The Lost King by Michael Cuell

I want to thank Michael Cuell for providing me with a print copy of The Lost King in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and views expressed are my own. I appreciate this opportunity.

I know I have posted a good bit of reviews up today dudes and dudettes but I swear I’m not reading like a speed demon. I am trying to catch up on reviews from the last few weeks or so and this one I was super excited about so I had to share especially because I usually don’t pick up a book based on this time period! Thank the heavens that I said yes to this author request!

Arundel’s past had been lost to him, his early childhood memories gone. His simple village life changed forever, when tragedy struck and set him on a path of vengeance, that would cause his past to unravel and his future to take a wild and uncertain twist. Join Arundel on his journey of love, death, loyalty and betrayal, taking him into the heart of the fight against a tyrannical King. Immerse yourself in Arundel’s story as he discovers his lineage as The Lost King.

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 Medieval Stars! Michael reached out to me about The Lost King and at first I was a little hesitant. I mean honestly its been a while since I read a novel based on this time period and really enjoyed it, but I thought “What the heck, if I don’t click well with it I can be honest with the author and say I tried my best but this is as far as I got.” Well little did I know that I was about to embark on an incredible adventure!

I quickly became deeply invested in Arundel and felt like I was able to travel along with him. This book was Michael’s debut and it was AMAZING! I started reading it and figured I could read it here and there along with my other books. Well lets just say that was impossible and in no time I was completely engulfed in the main character‘s world. This medieval fantasy had it all; it had adventures, deep characters, tragedy, romance, historical elements, drama and twists and turns!

Mr. Cuell hooked my imagination from page one and I didn’t want to let go! My only complaint is that there was no dragon and I’m a sucker for dragons but that’s not really a complaint. Hehe. Also this is only book one so hopefully a dragon is in store for us next but if not I’m sure it will still be epic! Lol.

This book is definitely one epic fantasy adventure! *Highly Recommended*

If you enjoy a good medieval fantasy read, look no further than Michael Cuell’s Medieval Masterpiece!

Bio:

So where do I begin?

Telling the story of a character seems so easy compared to telling the brief story of yourself. Well if you don’t count paper rounds I have worked since I was fifteen years old and have been in full time employment since I was seventeen, straight after I finished A-Levels. But that is the boring stuff. I have a beautiful wife and an even more beautiful daughter and they inspire me to pursue this dream in the hope we can share in it together.

What about the person behind the keyboard?

Well, I have always been someone who is passionate about things and it has often been said that if I am passionate about something, then I am 100% all in. My passion for Crystal Palace FC is the biggest example of that, my club is my heart, my blood is red and blue and has been since age six. My day is influenced by the results and I have a ridiculous list of superstitions that I know are rubbish, but hell I do them anyway because I can’t help it!

I love films, I am a massive geek. If it’s Batman, I’m sold. I don’t do plain, everything I have is novelty because I wear my passions on my sleeve as it were.

I have a memory that forgets when I need to do something like get a card, but I can remember the name of every Marine in Aliens!

I am certainly a strange one, no doubt about it.

I have always had a creative mind, ever since I can remember. If I am interested in something, there is no limit to my minds creativity. My problem is I have never been good at putting that creativity into a practical form, at least not until now. I hope that my book(s) will finally give my mind its platform to shine and enable me to share with the world a little insight into me.

As a boy I loved to read. I love to live out every page of a good book and place myself into the heart of the story. As I have grown and my imagination has grown, I have found I am not always satisfied. If one of my favourite characters dies, such as Ned Stark, I never really get over it. Or if I feel characters could have done something differently or something more, I will be left feeling short changed. Writing my own book enables me to change that. It enables me to tell a story how I want it told, but in a way that I feel people will enjoy. Naturally not everyone will, we are all such different people after all, but hopefully my imagination will capture the eye of others and bring them the joy that so many books over the years have given me.

Book Review: Roomies by Christina Lauren

Book Blurb:

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

Review: This book receives 5 out of 5 AMAZING Stars! This was just what I needed to lighten up my mood! This book was absolutely hilarious, surprising, romantic, fun, open-minded and more! I loved escaping into this book! I loved Holland and Calvin! They were awesome seperately but even better after their “nuptials”.

I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants! Okay, I know some of you are thinking “TMI, GROSS!” (Thank you motherhood!) Anyways back to this awesome book, I loved the romance and loved the family drama.

I also loved that there was an #LGBT+ couple in the mix. Holland was a hot mess but I just loved her! Calvin was completely a fiction husband to say the least! I mean who can go wrong with a sexy guitarist who is uber talented and uber awesome.

There’s so much that goes down, but not too much. I am so thankful that I had the pleasure of reading this book and will definitely be checking out the authors’ other works! Oh that’s another thing, this book was written by two ladies and I had absolutely no idea and all I wanted was more!

I received this book through the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Book Review: His Redneck Girl by Lindsey Brookes

I want to thank NetGalley and the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb:

Book 1 in the Possum Hollow Series

Jimmie Joe Johnson has spent years living up to his hound dog reputation. If he can’t have the one female he truly wants, then any female will do. When he isn’t off diddlin’ some female, he’s practicing for pool playoffs, determined to get his pool team to Vegas. Not only for bragging rights, but for the free trip to ‘Sin City’ and cash prize that comes along with it.
Baylee Jean Brown has never gotten over her first and only love, Jimmie Joe Johnson. So when she discovers the truth about why he really ended things with her all those years before, she sets out to get her man back. And no other thigh-parting female is going to stand in her way. She just has to find a way to make him take notice of her, considering he’d been avoiding her since that day her spell-threatening aunt (yes, she does come from a long line of witches), threatened to place his man-parts in a jar on her windowsill.
Avoiding Baylee Jean Brown in a town the size of Possum Hollow is hard enough, but all of the sudden she’s dressing sexy and aiming all that female heat in his direction. He tries to convince her that she’s better off without him, but how can he expect her to listen to reason when his own heart and body refuse to? Now his man-parts are in a whole different kind of danger. Not because her aunt might still carry through with her threat to pickle them, but because he knows no other woman will ever do.

“Irreverent, bawdy, laugh out loud funny. The most hilarious book I’ve read in years–maybe ever! In fact, I’m pretty sure this book is the reason the term “ROFLMAO” was invented. If you combined Jeff Foxworthy’s humor and Jason Stackhouse’s good looks and libido, you’d end up with Jimmie Joe Johnson, one smokin’ hot hound dog and one hilarious read!” –New York Times bestselling author C.L. Wilson

“The most hilarious book I’ve read in years–maybe ever!” –C.L. Wilson

(*previously released in digital format by Kensington Publishing under the title Jimmie Joe Johnson: Manwhore. Changes have been made to the cover and the story.)

*This tongue-in-cheek redneck romance is set in the fictional town of Possum Hollow, Alabama. This storyline is for entertainment purposes, not to reflect on any actual persons living in that state. It’s recommended for readers 18 years and older.

Review: I give this book 5 out 5 Redneck Stars!

Omg! This book was so hilarious! Born and raised since a lil girl with my best Sunday Frock so I am deep down kind of country. Well let me set this straight, I am actually a metal head but was born in the country in South Carolina and my family is what a lot of people would call “Rednecks”.

I can tell y’all how I raised up yonder on the country roots wit my frock, grits, sweet tea and was use to my kin speakin’ wit an axent but I betta keep it on the hush, hush instead of y’all city slickers learnin I’m a ninny.

Sorry lovelies, I had a sleepless night and went to childhood talk. So the cat is out of the bag, I could totally relate to this story because I have seen Redneck fun and craziness too many times! Half of my family is country pure and through, the other part I am asian and spanish. So growing up on a lane with all your kin and they are country as hell, trust me you see some things.

I loved this book because it reminded me of good parts of my childhood and heck people down the road from me now. I was able to laugh at how funny “rednecks” can be and I loved the romance in this story. Around where I live, it’s not out of the ordinary to hear someone talk with that kind of accent or see someone with a possum as a pet. Also southern people get mad about the whole “opossum” thing but I am starting to ramble on. I loved the characters in this book! I thought they were hilarious and realistic. To some they may not be realistic, but to me they are very much so. This book even had a little bit of mystery to it that intrigued me in the beginning. The author made me laugh until I cried while reading this story! I also really enjoyed the romance in this novel and felt the story was quite original. His Redneck Girl by Lindsey Brookes is a story that I soon won’t forget! Yee-haw!

Review: Makenzie’s Distraction by Angie Dokos~5 Stars

I ordered this book via Amazon Kindle a couple months ago. All views and opinions are my own.

Book Blurb:

Mackenzie’s Distraction is a New Adult Romance about a young lady with a rough past and a promising future. Just when her career is within reach, tragedy strikes. A terrible accident and a family secret turn Mackenzie’s world upside down. She’s sure her life can’t become any more complicated, then she meets Trevor. Will he be just what she needs or the distraction that pushes her over the edge?

This book is not erotica, but does have sexual content. It includes some curse words, but not many. It doesn’t have any major violence

Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 Heartfelt Stars! From the very beginning of this book there was twists and tragedy. I loved the characterisation in this book and felt that I could really relate to Mackenzie in so many ways. This book shows you what can come out of tragedy and the pursue of young love.

I have been reading pieces of this book and when I got a lot of time on my hands I completely devoured it, even though I should be focusing on all of my ARCs! This story was what I needed while I am facing a crossroads in my life and could look back and see the hardships I survived. I felt like I could feel the author’s passion through the pages and it was a truly heartfelt experience.

I loved Angie Dokos’ style of writing and can’t wait to read her next adventure! I will hold Mackenzie and this book close to my heart and she won’t soon be forgotten!
