Tracey’s Review:

Wow! Belle Brooks is a fantastic story teller and blew my mind with this tale. I don't even know where to start. This story had me clutching my kindle so tightly and my heart beat so fast! I don't want to give anything away but this book is in a league all it's own. This story is not for the faint of heart, but it's definitely worth every minute. This heart pounding, soul crushing forever changed me story has completely taken me out of my comfort zone and this crazy genius named Belle, couldn't stop me from turning the pages fast enough.

It is so realistic and vivid that you feel like you are right there trapped in the pages with Morgan trying to outsmart the Big Bad Wolf. The tension, fear, and heartache hold onto you like a vice grip as you keep turning the pages. You will want to scream, cry, and claw this crazy man's eyes out as the pain and suffering unfold.

As the plot thickens and you are given more clues, you just need to know why. And oh my gosh the letters will take your breath away. The pain, frustration and hope drips off the pages and it sounds crazy but you just need the story to keep going.

The conclusion is everything I didn't know I needed after Belle took me on this wild and crazy ride. you think you know who is involved and then BAM.....you say out loud, what the hell? How did I miss these clues? This story is shocking and captivating and holds on to every piece of hope that you have. Love has to conquer over evil, right?

Boink (Fallen Lords MC Book 5) by Winter Travers is a must read story with humor, grit, sweet talkin’, danger and love all swirled in to create a new spin on a forever fairytale!

 

Synopsis:

Letting his president's sister get kidnapped was not Boink’s finest hour as a member of the Fallen Lords MC. Now it’s time to pay the price protecting the very woman who distracted him from his job in the first place.

Mayra needed a safe place to land and the Fallen Lords clubhouse was the perfect solution, until her past puts everyone in danger. Her only option is to leave with a man she swears can’t stand her.

This time Boink won’t fail protecting what is his. Whatever is coming for Mayra will have to go through him and the Fallen Lords first.

 

 

 

Tracey’s Review:

Boink is a must read story with humor, grit, sweet talkin’, danger and love all swirled in to create a new spin on a forever fairytale. Winter you made me laugh with your book title choice, but it totally worked and I’m digging it. Oh, Mayra gave Boink fits and I loved how they clashed at first, but you could feel the positive energy between them.

I cracked up when she got butt hurt literally and figuratively. Mayra had sass and fire but was also sweet and loving. The SOA scene was one of my favorites, along with the “girl gang” with their meeting room so I hope everyone reads this to experience those hilarious moments for themselves. Winter, you have this way of making me fall in love with each of your MC men and “Boink” is no exception.

Tailor Made by Tasha Lewis is a great debut novel that pulled us right in with its uniqueness!

Synopsis:

Rayleigh

Dating, who has time for that? Between working and my art, I have room for nothing else. That is until my best friend sets me up on Tailor Made: a website where I can design the perfect guy and my dream date. Crazy? I thought so too. Until he shows up and proves me wrong. It’s supposed to be just one night of fun, but in my life, things rarely go according to plan.

Mason

Working at Tailor Made is the perfect arrangement: all the perks of dating without the commitment. Between school, two jobs and raising my sister, I don’t have time for relationships, nor the demands that come with them. Then a client books me for a night out and I know, one night will never be enough. What’s supposed to be a simple date, just a job, flips my world upside down.

Sometimes the perfect fit comes along when you least expect it.

Tracey’s Review:

Tailor Made is a great debut novel that pulled me right in with its uniqueness. I became invested in these characters from the start and wanted them to have a HEA. Mason and Rayleigh made me giddy especially after their spectacular date. You need to read this book just for the “I’ve got you” alone. The bond between siblings Mase and Shelby just strengthened this story for me. The teasing and witty banter along with the heartbreak and longing gave my heart a whirl and had me engaged with these characters like I was living through it with them. Tasha this book is sweet, savory and full of hope. Thank you for reminding me to chase my dreams and never settle. This story is refreshing and special and Tailor Made with love.

Ceej’s Review:

Tailor Made is a sweet novel that pulls at the heartstrings.  I really enjoyed Rayleigh and Mason and their relationships with the people closest to them.  How often do we read novels where there’s way too much strife between people who should have each other’s backs?  Or where the male and female protagonists fight so much you wonder why we’re focused on their story?  This story had a strong message of hope and encouragement and I loved that.  And this is a debut novel. 

Normally, I don’t go for debut novels, but the blurb was too interesting to pass up. This group of characters kept that interest up and reminded me that sweetness is beautiful, too.  Then the “I’ve got you” got ME.  Yowza.

Great job, Tasha Lewis!  I can’t wait for more from you!

The Other Blue Sky: Surviving the Holocaust by Shari J. Ryan is a story that shatters your views on what you think you know about life. 

Synopsis:

Very few people can say they were born inside a concentration camp during the Holocaust. Disease, starvation, and much worse, prevented most prisoners from surviving.

For infants, it was nearly impossible.  I became an anomaly. I shouldn't be alive.

As a child, I didn't know my life was different from that of others. I had nothing to compare it to, and I had no insight about the day I was born ... until the moment I overheard the truth.  In a split second, I became a stranger to my reflection, my name, and my reason for being. I was not Annie anymore, and the people raising me were not my parents. Even the blue sky I cherished became an unfamiliar sight.

I felt utterly alone in a foreign world, but that changed when I met another person who was lost, like me. Fisher offered his hand to hold and began to prove his theory of, "When two missing people find one another, they can consider themselves found."

Fisher enlightened me, and through him, I gained a deeper understanding of life. Now, I know there are two sides of the beautiful, blue sky. I'm on one side, and my lost loved ones are on the other, but at the end of it all, we'll be together again under the one and only sky.

Tracey’s Review:

This story shatters your views on what you think you know about life. It gives you a whole other perspective that everyone should see in my opinion. Shari, just like with Last Words, you have touched a piece of my heart and soul forever. My heart just broke for Annie and sometimes I couldn’t breathe whether from holding my breath or from feeling her pain, frustration or sadness. You collected my tears that’s for sure. Human Beings are such resilient people that it amazes me every day the situations and events we can live through. Annie is absolutely incredible, and I adore her so much.

Shari, thank you for writing this gut wrenching and fascinating story. Everyone needs to be reminded that when we look up at that blue sky we really aren’t living the same life as each other.

Crashed (The Driven Series Book 3) by K. Bromberg is a phenomenal story with all the feels!

Synopsis:

When life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments.

Big moments.

Little moments.

And none of them are inconsequential.

Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

Love is full of ups and downs.

Heart stopping highs.

Soul shattering lows.

And none of them are insignificant.

Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

Tracey’s Review:

Kristy, this book gave me all the feels while Rylee and Colton worked through all their highs and lows. They are imperfectly perfect for each other and I could not get enough. The sweet and tender side of Colton rocked me to my core and my heart was ready to explode. I loved this series so much! I race you Kristy and I race this book!
