Review: Freddie Entangled

Freddie Entangled
Freddie Entangled by Kiru Taye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Freddie Entangled is heartbreaking, passionate, and refreshing in its beautiful delivery of a wonderfully unique and deeply touching story of learning how to rise from the ashes of life. This story took me completely by surprise, and I loved every wondrous second of it! Nothing feels quite as good as a well-written and brilliantly executed storyline that tilts your world on its axis and never lets you recover from it. This story gave me that and so much more.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The characters were utterly fascinating, and I enjoyed getting to know each one of them. They challenged me every step of this journey, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. The plot was wonderfully enjoyable and pushed my limits in some areas, but when surrounded by the circumstances of this story, I can easily go with the flow. Above all else, I loved being able to cheer and root for Kike and Freddie. They are such incredibly complex yet stunningly simple characters who just long to savor and cherish the most important things in life. They both crave things just out of reach, and yet they are both fiercely determined to have the chance to embrace them.

Kiru Taye has stolen my heart with this incredible story! She has taken me on a wild, emotional rollercoaster that made me more addicted to it the longer I rode it. I am in awe of her heart and this fabulous story! I want so much more now, and I am so looking forward to the second half of this amazing journey of love and hope wrapped up in an unconventional yet thrilling plot that has engaged and awakened every part of me.

Review: The Catch

The Catch
The Catch by K. Bromberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Catch is a breathtakingly brilliant and surprisingly sensational conclusion to this stunning masterpiece! Just when you think you know where the story is going, it drops the floor out from under your very feet and steals the breath from your lungs as it twists and tilts the world around you to create a whole new reality colored with more surprises then you could ever imagine. This story will show you that you can take one more life-upending shock, one more haunting revelation, and one more soul crushing truth then you thought possible and still manage to walk around and survive. When you need some bone deep courage and the knowledge that the human spirit can survive past deep pain, crushing lies, and twisted surprises from fate, all you have to do is pull this story from your shelf. Let its words caress your ragged soul, and breathe deep of its wondrous wisdom as it soothes your weary heart and infuses it with a spectacularly unexplainable and unconditional love.

My heart has been utterly and irrevocably shattered, healed, and then transformed by Scout and Easton. Every step of the way, they have shocked, melted, and awakened every one of my senses. I walked next to them confidently, hesitantly, and brokenly as I watched their incredible journey slowly unfold. They left no area untouched, and everywhere they left their fingerprints I am in awe. This is truly a power couple who understands the power, the meaning, and the purpose of learning how to love another and loving them well. Not much can top this magnificent love story that braves every part of life to come out triumphant, remembered, and cherished.

K. Bromberg has literally slayed me into a smiling mess of happiness and contentment. She is a master who understands that love shines the brightest only after being tested in the most grueling way that only life can bring. That love then becomes a beacon of what every other love aspires to become. This is the wildfire that we desperately need if we ever hope to warm up our cold, frigid, and hard world. Only then can change truly be possible. For once you change the heart, you change the world.

Review: Dragon’s Lair

Dragon's Lair
Dragon’s Lair by Chantal Fernando
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dragon’s Lair is a wonderfully unique and energetically pulse-pounding MC adventure that will keep you on your toes and giggling from time to time. It is a delightfully fun and deeply emotional journey which will pull on your heartstrings without fail. It knocked me completely off my feet, and I never fully recovered. Falling into this world was a beautiful dream that I never hoped to never awaken from.

There were plenty of unexpected moments of pain, love, and utter bliss, and I just couldn’t get enough. This is an outstanding story chock full of more heart and soul then I knew what to do with, and I cherished each and every one. The amazing MC members were such a diverse group that warmed my heart at how they tested and yet opened their arms to their newest unconventional member. This was an atypical story that I love so hard with its incredible steam, beautiful friendship, and unbreakable love.

Chantel Fernando took my heart by storm and refused to give it back. She has created such a magnificent treasure that I will never recover from its true impact. I hope to visit her amazing world again and find out how what her wonderful characters are up to next. If you enjoy MC stories, then you absolutely NEED to read and savor this incredible book!

Review: Lie with Me

Lie with Me
Lie with Me by M. Never
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lie With Me is a unexpected treasure that flipped my world upside down when I needed it the most. There is nothing like a phenomenal storyline that can take you by the throat and show you exactly what you have been missing. While deceptively simple, this book will show you layers upon layers of lies, self-deceit, and just how it affects you and those around you. Nothing good will ever come along until you can stand up and face the truth of the matter head on. No other truer words were uttered then “the truth will set you free”. Only with a heart free of lies and deception can you allow hope and love to filter in and transform the darkest parts of your soul into something more beautiful than words could ever describe.

This wonderful story will enchant and seduce you with its amazing characters. You will never see them coming, and they will rock and tilt your world until you no longer recognize it. I was thrilled and astonished by how absolutely incredible each and every character was that I faced along the way. While some were catalyst to a beautiful change and others were dedicated bedrocks and foundations of love, each placed a critical role in this truly unforgettable journey! I can’t express in adequate words just how much I loved, savored, and appreciate every part of this book!!

M. Never has proven her exquisite prowess as a literary powerhouse with this book and as well all of her others. Each stands out in a wholly unique and influential way that will touch the lives of everyone who experiences them. There is nothing like a brilliant author who knows just how to touch your heart and make you feel every word, every emotion, and everything that comes directly from their heart.

Review: Going Gets Hot

Going Gets Hot
Going Gets Hot by Rachelle Ayala
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Going Gets Hot is a stunningly sweet and achingly raw journey of learning that there is more to the people around us then we may ever know. Life may only give us the opportunity to know one side of a person whenever there is so much more complexity to them then we can even dare to imagine. Only fate can twine people together and give them the chance to see the other is made of. Sometimes those revelations comes out among hot and steamy encounters and other times they can be painful and surprising. No matter what, they show the pure and real parts of the whole person that stands before us. We have to choose to open our eyes and accept every part no matter how beautiful or scarred.

When you live life with blinders on while only focusing on one goal, you discover that you miss a lot of things throughout the years. Personal interpretation is marred by shadows and half-truths while everything passes you by. When the self-imposed masked we have worn is thrown off once the life-consuming goal has been accomplished, the blinding light and noise of everything falls quickly and intensely up on you head and heart. Sorting through all of the new, confusing things becomes a secondary purpose as your guiding rule is to continue on with your recently gained.

accomplishment. Will the overwhelming pressures and truths pull you deeper into a world you know nothing about, or will you find yourself fleeing when the world seems to be set against you?
I was totally enchanted and delighted as I got to know Chad and Amber throughout this story. They felt like they could have been people I knew. I walked through life mostly with my head down as well. My goals were already in place, and all I had to do was stay focused. I found the results to be empty and lacking at the end. There was no substance or feeling of huge accomplishment. There was only ink and a vague future. Watching so much more unfold for and between Chad and Amber gave me hope that they could turn things around and open up to each other. They had a chance to discover the diamond in the rough before it was too late.

Rachelle Ayala has given us yet another beautiful story from this enchanting town that never fails to sweep you off your feet. There is always friends or family that help to open the eyes of the confused and plainly explain that you should never fear the possibilities of the heart and love. She shows that life is only made sweeter and new fulfilling if we allow hope to take charge of our future instead of fear. She is a fabulous author who only gets better and more accomplished with time. I can’t wait to see what absolute treasure she creates next!

Review: The Bastard Billionaire

The Bastard Billionaire
The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Bastard Billionaire is a wholly unexpected and wonderfully brilliant story that will melt your heart and sizzle your ereader! This is a heart-stopping, whirlwind adventure that will challenge you in ways you never saw coming. Just opening your heart to this book could spell total disaster or unspeakable bliss. The outcome depends on the path you take and the choices that rule your heart. Nothing worth having or fighting for is ever easy, and this story is no exception. In fact, it will threaten to shatter your heart more times than you can possibly imagine. Do you have the strength and the courage for fight for who and what you want despite life’s cruel unpredictability?

My words cannot do this incredible story the true justice it deserves in flowing and powerful words of adoration and admiration, but I will do my best to convey the depth of the impact that this story and its wonderful characters have had on me. I am left in awe as to the beautiful diversity of the fantastic characters that punched numerous holes in my defenses as I welcomed and embraced each one. My heart was stretched and transformed in so many ways that I didn’t recognize it in the end. I feel very privileged and honored to be able to cherish and savor every word of this magnificent work of art! What a true treasure and a literary jewel!

Jessica Lemmon is a new author to me, but now I can’t wait to read more of her books. The series that The Bastard Billionaire is in sounds absolutely amazing! The world that she built is wonderfully enticing and enthrallingly addicting. Seeing one part of it has only made me hungrier and more impatient to explore the rest of it. This is an author that you do not want to miss out on! She is wondrously talented, and I can’t wait to see what she creates next.
