Review: Forever Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Review: Forever Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Please help TWITA welcome guest reviewer, Kymbo. An avid reader, Kymbo is also the teenaged daughter of our own Ang. Forever Doon Author: Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Reviewer: Kymbo Rating: C What I’m Talking About: I’ve read the Doon series from beginning to end. Not being one for fairytales with the whole princess and prince thing, I was surprised at how much I thoroughly enjoyed the first two titles in the series. After the first two though, I started having some fairly major issues with the novels. I felt as though the target age for the series changed to a younger audience, as if series was being dragged...

Review: Shades of Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Review: Shades of Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Please help TWITA welcome guest reviewer, Kymbo. An avid reader, Kymbo is also the teenaged daughter of our own Ang. Shades of Doon Author: Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Reviewer: Kymbo Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: After reading the first two books in this series, I was beyond excited to receive Shades of Doon as an ARC in the mail. However, I am sad to say I was disappointed as I started reading the book and even had to put it down for a while before picking it up again. Shades of Doon picks up beautifully from where the second one, Destined For Doon, leaves off; however, as...

Review: Destined for Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Review: Destined for Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Please help TWITA welcome guest reviewer, Kymbo. An avid reader, Kymbo is also the teenaged daughter of our own Ang. Destined for Doon Author: Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Guest Reviewer: Kymbo Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The first in this series, Doon, changed my perspective on fairytale/princess books altogether. I loved every minute of it. I am happy to say I was not disappointed at all with this sequel. Destined for Doon is anything but your basic fairytale. There is no damsel in distress who needs rescuing , no prince who comes to save her, nor a song after every major scene. Instead, this book is full...

Review: Moonlight On Nightingale Way by Samantha Young

Review: Moonlight On Nightingale Way by Samantha Young Moonlight On Nightingale Way Author: Samantha Young Reviewer: Luisa (Guest Review) Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: This final installment of the On Dublin Street series might be the last, but the story will stay forever in my heart. Being this the last book of one of my favorite series, my expectations were really high, however Samantha Young did not disappoint. As I was reading this book, I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic and a little apprehensive as I read about a brand new characters. My fears were quickly at ease, as I was quickly consumed by the story. Our heroine Grace Farquhar (formerly Gracelyn Bentley) is a young...

Review: Hero by Samantha Young

Review: Hero by Samantha Young Hero Author: Samantha Young Reviewer: Nena Rating: B What I’m Talking About: If you are familiar with Samantha Young’s writing, you know her writing tends to flows seamlessly at every turn of the page. Contemporary romance readers will appreciate the story telling in this novel, even though the story seems to follow the popular “independent young woman, falls for self-made millionaire” trend. In Hero, we meet Alexa Holland as she’s preparing a set for a photo-shoot session with a high profile client. When her boss informs Alexa that they’ll be working with Mr. Caine Carraway, Alexa’s world stops spinning. She immediately recognizes the name and realizes that she must decide...

Fall From India Place was a big surprise for me as the...

Review: Biting Bad by Chloe Neill

Review: Biting Bad by Chloe Neill Biting Bad Author: Chloe Neill Reviewer: Guest Review: Wendy Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: I wish I could say that I loved everything about this book, and – don’t get me wrong,  parts of it were great – but overall it felt… unfinished. The good stuff first: Merit and Ethan continue to be a fantastic couple. They’re funny and they’re sexy, and they’re two of the least broody vampires I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy on paper. I love their relationship. He’s kind of stuffy and uptight (because… you know… he’s 400 years old), and she’s just one of the girls. She loves pizza and...
