Kept by Shawntelle Madison

Ok so even though this is a paranormal romance there is so much more to it than just that, first off we have Nat who has OCD. I mean come on a werewolf with OCD I love it! Then the author encompasses several side stories that are absolutely fascinating in their own right, making this one book that is hard to put down. In a lot of books where two men are vying for the attentions of one woman you always get the sense of who the author is leaning towards, this is not the case in this book which is a pleasant surprise that leads me to wonder if the author knew or just decided at the end who Nat would end up with. I haven’t read the first book in this series yet but the author does a wonderful job encompassing enough of what happened previously to catch you up but still make you want to read it if you have not.  I personally hope I will get the chance to read the beginning and the rest; I am dying to know what happens next.

Low Pressure By Sandra Brown Review

Low Pressure

By Sandra Brown

Bellamy Lyston Price never wanted to be associated with the bestseller that she wrote. She had written it for purely therapeutically reasons, but when it is found out that she is the author and the book is based on the murder of her sister when she was twelve years old she is thrown into the limelight. Now as she is going home a sleazy reporter implies that maybe the police convicted the wrong man and she along with her sister’s boyfriend of the time she was murdered collaborates to find out whether the cops had it right or worse, wrong.

Low Pressure

Sandra Brown has created an interesting suspense novel full of twists and turns that will lead you deeper down the rabbit hole as it turns out that Bellamy’s sister, Susan, was not quite what Bellamy has remembered and is a much darker character than anyone would first imagine. Full of romance and murder I loved this book, though it is a romance it wasn’t “heavy” on the romance but leaned more towards the mystery side of the story which is a refreshing change. One of the things I found unique is that from the beginning you know who is after Bellamy and why, the fun part is there is more to the villain than first meets the eye as well as being remarkably crazy, but in the end Sandra Brown still has a few tricks up her sleeve to surprise you. All in all this is one heck of a thrill ride and certainly worth the read

Desert Rice by Angela  Scott

Angela Scott has written an emotional rollercoaster of a novel with such a surprising twist towards the end that will make you cringe and cry out at the injustice of what has happened. I loved it, my husband on the other hand decided headphones was the way to go after some of the more heinous secrets where revealed. I say this more to point out that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does have one of the best ending I have come across in a long time. I am trying to be as vague as possible so I will not give anything away but also to do this novel justice, it is truly an amazing read so well written and emotional charged that it is hard to set down. Warning though you may want a big box of tissues at hand just in case you turn into a geyser, it’s that good.

The Wedding Dress by Ellie Keaton Review

The Wedding Dress

The Survivors Club Book One

By Ellie Keaton

The Wedding Dress  (The Survivors Club Book One)

Ellie Keaton has just made my “Evil Evil Authors” list. Despite going into the novel with my “tough face” on and determined to read this short story without crying, I did not succeed. I made it through most of it till I hit the end and she did me in. This was a beautiful story of the love and loss that surrounds 9/11. Ellie Keaton managed to create a stunning story in a few short pages that will surely move you, if not you may want to visit a doctor. In the end this is one of those stories that are worth the short yet entertaining read. Not only is the story amazing but the author also donates 15% of the proceeds from this short story to Tuesdayschildren.org which helps children who were affected by 9/11.

Ain’t No Bum By Dennis McCrieght Review

Ain’t No Bum

By Dennis McCrieght

Milt has lived his entire life with the stigma his father has placed on him, that he is a no good bum just because he would not cow to his father’s ways and fervently stuck to his morals not wanting to be a mean drunk like his old man. One day as he is working with the CCC he walks into walgreens and asks the cute shop girl if they have Prince Albert in a can, from that day on Milt and Vi would be inseparable through thick and thin as Milt continues to live with the utmost integrity.

Ain't No Bum

This was such a beautiful story, not only does the author bring to life truly wonderful characters but he also brings to life the country in which they live from the depression to the polio outbreak he spans decades as the couple begin a family and travel through some of the worst times in history. You will feel a connection with Milt even if you have never been in an abusive family situation the author will pull every heart string until you feel as if you have. From the beginning this novel enraptured me and the author did a wonderful job in rapping up the ending so that you feel complete closure, leaving you with the warm and fuzzies.
