Review: The Pages of the Mind by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Pages of the Mind by Jeffe Kennedy The Pages of the Mind Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: The Pages of the Mind is the debut novel of the Twelve Kingdom spin-off series, The Uncharted Realms.  Overall we enjoyed the first book in the beginning of a new series. Gikany and Una love the world that this series takes place in.  It is not imperative to read the Twelve Kingdoms series first; however, you will have a stronger understanding and appreciation if you do read the previous series (and you should because it is good).  You will also have a much stronger connection to Dafne.  For fans that have...

Review: Every Bride Has Her Day by Lynnette Austin

Review: Every Bride Has Her Day by Lynnette Austin Every Bride Has Her Day Author: Lynnette Austin Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I was a bit hesitant to return to Savannah Georgia with Ms. Austin because I felt the first novel in the Magnolia Bride series was just OK. But Every Bride Has Her Day proved to be a lovely surprise. Every Bride Has Her Day is fun and quirky like Cricket, with just the right touch of sexy and smoldering like Sam. Who knew throwing a Yankee into the south could be so much fun? The chemistry is felt as soon as Cricket bangs on Sam’s front door and is carried out until the...

Review: Head Above Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Head Above Water by Hailey Edwards Head Above Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Head Above Water is… awesome. I was really excited to get back to Cam and Graeson. Their story is compelling, wrought with sexual tension, and contains a twist in their romance I did NOT see coming!!! The over-arching series conflict with Charybdis continues to build and puzzle Cam, as well. I may have devoured this title in one sitting, had life not happened. I love the theme of ‘family’ in this title. Part of what we get to see involves Cam, Aunt Dot, and Cam’s cousin, Isaac. Blood relatives. The family dynamic is unique, and...

Review: Deadly Testimony by Piper J. Drake

Review: Deadly Testimony by Piper J. Drake Deadly Testimony Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una liked this second novel in the Safeguard series.  Kyle and Lizzy are not the stereotypical couple in a military romance.  We enjoyed the honesty of their characters, their uniqueness, and their journey. Kyle and Lizzy do not have the typical roles that one sees in military romance.  Kyle is the “damsel” in the distress while Lizzy is the hero.  We enjoyed this change.  We liked how Kyle, although trained in martial arts, was not a fighter in that sense.  He was vulnerable, and we appreciated seeing a man struggle with...

Review: Wedding Girl by Stacey Ballis

Review: Wedding Girl by Stacey Ballis Wedding Girl Author: Stacey Ballis Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Wedding Girl is a delightfully indulgent book. All in one, it’s an ode to comfort food, old black and white movies, specifically The Little Shop Around the Corner, and family. The Little Shop Around the Corner (1940) was remade into the 1998 blockbuster You’ve Got Mail and Wedding Girl gives nods to them both. It was a slow seduction, but Ballis totally won me over. The story begins with a personal disaster.  Sophie Bernstein, the child of nurturing, successful hippies (think of Sandra Bullock’s parents in Two Weeks Notice,) has her perfect life mapped out with...
