JC's Review ~ Promise Me Forever by Paige Weaver

Promise Me Forever (Pomise Me, #4)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 AMAZING STARS

Wow...finishing this book, I was left utterly speechless.
I've been a huge fan of Paige Weaver's writing since first discovering her with Promise Me Darkness.
Paige Weaver has the astounding writing ability to bring not only the characters to life, but her words engulf the readers, pulling you into this crazy war driven world she's created. All of her books, have left me reeling, but this one was by far the best of the entire series. I loved every moment of it, from beginning to end. There was never a dull moment.

Promise Me Forever picks up immediately where the cliffhanger of Promise Me Once left off. (So if you haven't read the first three of the series, you will be somewhat confused!)
From the first page, I felt the intensity of the setting and that never went away. I felt like I was on pins and needles for the entire book, constantly petrified Cash and Cat wouldn't have the outcome I hoped for. This book literally had me on the edge of my seat the entire way through.

America is at war and pretty much is thrust back to the 'stone-age'. No electricity. No cell phones. An overthrown government. Rebel militias. Danger everywhere. The circumstances are so realistic, so possible, at some points terrifying truthful. IFollow Cash and Cat as they are finally reunited and they struggle with their harsh reality as they try to get back home to safety together.

Cash Marshall was a mysterious side character in the first two books of this series, I was given just enough enticing details to want more of him. In Promise Me Once, we finally got the start of his journey of finding the Beauty Queen he couldn't get out of his head. He's mysterious. He's broody. He's alpha. He's dark, and he's sexy as can be. That cowboy hat and his jaw tick---Sigh. I loved everything about him. I love that he was able to pull the softer side out in Cat. And his protectiveness over her safety bumped him up to one of my top book boyfriends ever.

I will admit that I wasn't a huge fan of Catarina 'Cat' Phillips in Promise Me Once, she was spoiled, she was rude and she acted like she was better than everyone else. However, she made up for it in this book, Cat FINALLY realizes that her social standing before the war, mean nothing, and all the material things and money she had, and the destructive lifestyle she was living, wasn't what she wanted. Cash forced her to see that. Her character matures a lot throughout this book, and in the end, I adored her. She's one tough chic and held her own in some very tough situations.

Finishing this book did nothing to curb my excitement from it. This is one of the very rare books that I immediately wanted to start back at page one as soon as I read the final line in it.

It will give you every emotion you can imagine. It will leave you reeling. It will wreck you for other books to come.

NOAH'S JOURNEY by CA Harms
Series: Sawyer Brothers #3
Genre: Western Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Release Date: FEBRUARY 2, 2016
- SYNOPSIS -

The years that were taken can never be repaid.

The memories stolen can never be returned.

But I had to move forward…for him, my son.

Noah had spent years wondering what he could have done differently. Wondering what he’d done wrong to make Stacey leave. The heartache from her absence and the what-ifs of their past eventually turned to anger—and then disgust.

It took years for him to move on, and once he did, his past came thundering back, revealing a secret.

A secret that would forever change his future.

Alena had waited for the chance to have more with Noah. He was an enigma, a man of mystery, yet she wasn’t quite ready to give up on him. She knew there was more to him than what he allowed those around him to see. She was drawn to his charm and his calm nature. With an uprooted past of her own, she craved a little stability more than anything. But when things between them finally begin to grow into more, their relationship is tested.

Will it all be too much for Alena to handle?
Or will she decide to stay and be a part of…Noah’s Journey?

Jess's Review ~ Never Tied Down by Anie Michaels

Never Tied Down (The Never Duet, #2)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

description

Riddled with self-doubt and mourning, Kalli is trying to move forward with her life. Never reaching for more, just looking to get by. She misses Riot terribly but not interested in doing anything about that. When the opportunity of a life-time falls into her lap it is as if fate has more planned than to have her just standing still.

"Now I know that I was standing still before you, tethered to a good life with Marcus, but never reaching for greatness, never looking for anything more."

Riot was giving her her space, letting her grieve, letting time attempt to heal her wounds and then she is there. In a little coffee shop, in his neck of the woods and her time without him is about to come to an end. If she will talk to him that is.

After reading book one, I have to say I didn't love Kalli. Her self-worth was minimal and even though she had a hard past, some of her actions drove me mad. She redeemed herself for me in book two though, she went through a lot of changes and came out so much stronger on the other side. Riot on the other hand, I loved him. I loved his patience and understanding. He had this way about him that made me smile and hints of dirtiness that made me swoon. I can't say how happy I was to have his POV in this book and the ability to learn more about him.

The second installment came together nicely for me. I enjoyed watching both characters grow and move to a place in their lives where they can achieve all they are meant for. There was a lot of reflection and bittersweetness throughout the story. By losing her whole purpose in life, Kalli had to figure out how to live again and even find the answers to her past hurts. There was also some serious heat and the chemistry between Riot and Kalli that never dwindled and if possible grew more intense. I enjoyed this story and while not my normal, "go-to" type of book it was a nice change to get some "feels" and deeper emotional involvement with the characters.

When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven't spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what's more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.
Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she's drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she's forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?
