Shy's Review ~ Unbreak This Heart by Betty Shreffler

Unbreak This HeartUnbreak This Heart by Betty Shreffler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

description
Unbreak This Heart was a serious emotional roller-coaster. I'm normally not an angst fan, but Betty Shreffler does it so well that even as my heart is being ripped to shreds I keep reading. And if there is a moment that I had to stop and put it down (adulting getting in the way) then I quickly returned to reading even knowing what I could possibly endure.

Alex DeMarco has experienced one of a woman's worst nightmares. And she is just starting to put herself and her life back together after over a year and many a fearful, sleepless night. She's lost so much since that tragic night and is starting to find the strength she was sure she'd ever feel again.

In comes Carter Maxwell. He helps boost her confidence and is restoring more to her than she ever imagined, but she's not sure if she's ready for what all he's offering. She's not sure she ever will be. And to complicate matters further, the ex-fiance she thought gone forever after everything that happened is back and saying he wants another chance.

This book will have you invested. It will have you picking sides and wanting to scream there's no other choice then what to me was the obvious one. And it will have you continuing to turn the pages even if things aren't going your way because it's so well written. I experienced all that and just an overall great reading experience. This is a book that I highly recommend.

Shy's Review ~ The Right Side of Forever by Meghan Quinn

The Right Side of ForeverThe Right Side of Forever by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

description
I'm pretty sure what I just read was darn near perfection in reading form. Not just because it was everything I hoped for in an ending, even though it was. But also because everything from beginning to end was fantastic.

Colby definitely stayed perfect in my eyes. He has been my favorite character since The Upside of Falling, and it held true all the way through this one. But Ryan? Ryan was an out of left field surprise. She was a really relatable, impossible not to love kind of character. I thought Colby was supposed to be with Rory, but now I KNOW he has who he was truly meant to be with.

I even ended this duet feeling like I got a really good message out of it all. Sometimes people can come along that you love but they aren't meant to be your forever. Sometimes they are an important stop or stepping stone in getting to where you really belong.

I just loved this duet. I highly recommend it, and that the reader come armed with tissues. But it's so worth it.

Shy's Review ~ The Left Side of Perfect by Meghan Quinn

The Left Side of PerfectThe Left Side of Perfect by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

description
Hooked. Once again Meghan Quinn had me hooked with The Left Side of Perfect. I went into this book thinking that I knew what was going to happen, but at the same time thinking "this is Meghan Quinn so I can't ever really know what's going to happen". And once again she completely threw me.

This book went in a direction I absolutely didn't see it going but the flow and the different twists and turns and the characters at the heart of the story kept me reading. Even in those moments when I was almost thinking to myself what the heck am I reading? This isn't the book I thought I was going to get. I love Colby. I've loved him ever since he was first introduced to me. And for a while I wasn't really sure that the first introduction ended the way it should have. Yes it was a beautiful story, but again it wasn't the story I thought I was getting. The Left Side of Perfect is just like that. It's so well-written that you don't want to put it down.

Like I said Colby is amazing. And Ryan, don't even get me started on Ryan. I had no idea what a deep character she would end up being. I knew she was a good friend, I knew she could be fun, but I didn't know her past and I didn't know the struggles that she deals with every day. The kind of struggles that I think a lot of women can relate to. And I definitely fell in love with her character.

The relationship between Colby and Ryan was so completely unexpected. I didn't see it going in that direction. But it was actually pretty amazing. I really enjoyed it as I was reading and smiled so much.

And then the book ended and I felt like my heart was ripped out. I didn't want it to end. Because I don't understand how something that actually seems so right on the surface felt so wrong. And now I need The Right Side of Forever to hopefully fix it and give me the right ending.

Tiffany's Review ~ His Lady by Leah Sharelle

His Lady (Wounded Souls, #4)His Lady by Leah Sharelle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

description
I've followed this whole series, and I've been dying for Mannix and Rainn's story. They've been an unofficial couple in a non-exclusive relationship for years. Mannix has one rule these days; don't involve the heart. He was in the service and had a wife and two kids at home. After one horrible accident where he lost an eye, his twin lost a leg, and he lost friends, he came home only to lose his family. His wife was a deceitful liar on her best day. She destroyed him for any other woman. Now his life is easy. He lives for the club and turns to Rainn when he needs her, no strings attached. My heart broke for him because you could see that he felt more than he was willing to let on for Rainn. They were perfect for each other if only he could open his heart.

Rainn was a main dancer for the MC strip club. She was the best at her job and she loved the no strings relationship she had with Mannix. I absolutely loved her take-no-crap attitude, and that she gave as good as she got. She was amazingly strong trying to do what she thought was right for the club, instead of herself. I found her to be a very selfless person and she did everything she could for the other ladies in the club, no matter their status.

When "Rogue" targets Rainn next and she disappears, it pushes Mannix into action. I took a deep breathe when he finally got his head out his butt and realized what he wanted. His insecurities got the best of him at times, but once Mannix Steele sets his mind to something, he gets what he wants.

This series has been full of action and mystery. Rogue still plays a huge part, but they're getting closer to nailing him. This author is great at keeping you on the edge of your seat, just waiting to find out who it is and what he has up his sleeve next. One of those questions has now been answered and I cannot wait for the next installment of this exciting series!

Release Blitz ~ #REVIEW ~ The Perfect Duet by Meghan Quinn

   

The Left Side Of Perfect – Release Day – August 30

For better or for worse,'til death do us part . . .

The better captured me; she's who stole my heart.

And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.

The worse of her took my breath away--kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.

When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.

The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.

The third?

I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.

But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse--even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.

I’m getting married.

This is forever, 'til death do us part.

The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day August 31

In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .

It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.

To give them your heart.

So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?

She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.

 Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

About UNLOCKING SHADOWS

Coming September 18th
Gwen Kendall spent ten years in the Navy and used the last four to create a life for herself she could be proud of away from the confines of her overprotective family. Being the only woman in the Kendall clan tended to be a bit overwhelming at times.
Chad Schaeffer had been hired on to help restore an old farmhouse for one of the returning Kendall siblings. He’d heard about the trouble the family had encountered and honestly didn’t want to go anywhere near their properties. He had a change of heart when he saw the most recently returned Kendall sibling stepping out of her car with a key in her hand.
Gwen had waited a very long time to have a place to call her own, just as she had waited for the right man to share her life. One night of seduction convinces her she’s found both, but someone wants to take it all away. It’s been said that old houses retain a piece of each person who has lived there, but she never counted on the dark shadows wanting a piece of her.

Shy's Review ~ The Earl of London by Louise Bay

The Earl of LondonThe Earl of London by Louise Bay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

description
This book was beyond expectations good. This started off as an enemies to lovers story, but it was also so much more than that.

Logan was pretty fantastic. Even when he was keeping distance and building walls to protect himself and others due to a less than ideal childhood, he was still fantastic. I guy who does what he does and cares so clearly for his grandmother already gets an A++ in my book. Even his introduction scene set up his alpha attitude and gave me the perfect idea of what to expect going forward. But the first meeting between him and Darcy took the cake.

Darcy was a perfect example of strong independence with a good head on her shoulders and beauty to boot. She clearly loved her brother and had a strong sense of family loyalty. She had her own childhood disappointments and it of course becomes an issue when combined with Logan's history.

Louise Bay gave me a beautiful story from beginning to end. It especially has a really sweet end. I cannot wait for whatever she has next up for her readers.

Shy's Review ~ Memento Mori by Lexi Blake

Memento Mori (Masters & Mercenaries: The Forgotten, #1)Memento Mori by Lexi Blake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

description
Memento Mori is the start of a new series by Lexi Blake and it had me completely enthralled. The very beginning was gripping, the middle held me spell bound and the ending had me desperate for more. I also felt completely in awe and in love with the story I had just read.

Jax was such a fantastically written character. Through all the horrors he'd been through, he still retained so much kindness inside. He was a little bit nerdy, had a whole lot of capacity to be dangerous, but still had a good heart. The moment he met River was like a whole new world opened up for him.

The strength River shows as she handles the many issues thrown at her was awe inspiring. I loved that even as I screamed aloud because I wished she was making a different choice, I also completely understood where she was coming from. I could respect her actions even if I wanted her to do it another way.

If this book is a taste what this series has in store, I will be excitedly looking out for each new release and reading it the moment I can get my hands on it.
