Review: The Forgotten Wife By Emma Robinson #BookonTour #Bookouture #NetGalley

Google Play: http://bit.ly/2Ro4NNz

When you see them, they are so happy, so in love. He’s holding the door open for her, she’s clearly expecting a baby. You think: she has everything I don’t. Everything I ever dreamed of…

There’s room in her house where Shelley has shut away a heartbreakingly-soft, never-used baby blanket. In a box, under a bed, behind a door that she never opens. If it’s there, she can forget about it. Just like she has her memories. Of a marriage that hadn’t been perfect. Of a life that didn’t go the way she had hoped.

Review: After Anna by Lisa Scottoline

After AnnaAfter Anna by Lisa Scottoline
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to thank Lisa Scottoline for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite authors so it was a no brainier that when she came out with her Number 1 Best Seller After Anna that I just had to read the book. Lisa wrote one of her best books with one of the biggest twist plots you never in a million years saw coming just when you thought the book was going to end! I was speechless! She gave no clues that was going to happen whatsoever!

If you like you are the type of person who likes mysteries, thrillers, on the edge of your seat, twist and turns, reunited families, deaths, missing people, sexual abuse, murder, sex traffic ring, court case, etc then this book is definitely for you.

I would love to see this book on the big screen one day!

Review: When It Rains By T.K. Chapin

When it Rains (The Potter's House #2)When it Rains by T.K. Chapin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First, I want to thank TK Chapin for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

When It Rains by T.K. Chapin is a standalone book that is part of the Potter House Series of various authors. T.K. Chapin fans get your box of tissues ready because you will need it for the extremely powerful, moving and tearful ending he has in store for you. A bond between two people I did not see coming and the amazing thing he gave up for her. Just incredible and mind blowing to me.

Review: Prptected By Love Series By T.K. Chapin

The Protected by Love Series (Protected by Love #1-3)The Protected by Love Series by T.K. Chapin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to thank T.K. Chapin for providing me with this series of books so I may bring you this review.

The Complete Protected By Love Series: Contemporary Christian Love Series by T.K. Chapin is made up of three books in the series. You must read these books in order and are not considered standalones. The first book in the series is called Love’s Return. The second is called Love’s Promise. The third which was called Love’s Protection. In each book T.K stayed true to himself and put his faith and God’s word into his writing. Each book will pull on your heart strings a little bit. Some moments I even shed a tear or two.

Each book gets better and better in the series. I am fond of each of them. However, Love’s Protection pulled on my heart strings the most out of all of them. This story had a little bit of clean romance in it, the bodyguard aspect, I loved the fact that it was set In Mexico so you got a different setting.

First, I want to thank TK Chapin for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

TK Chapin is back with another amazing faith-based novel entitled The Space Between Us. This time around he has his characters each facing and tackling difficult situations. In true TK form there is a strong life lesson in the book.

Review: The Perfect Cast By TK Chapin

The Perfect Cast (Love's Enduring Promise #1)The Perfect Cast by T.K. Chapin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to thank T.K. Chapin for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

T.K. Chapin is back again with another amazing read in The Perfect Cast. I have been a fan of his for quite some time. Therefore, I have seen his progression in writing in diverse topics. All coming back to his roots of his faith which I have always admired. Out of all the books he has written though I enjoyed this one the most. I know I say that to most of them. However, in this book I could relate to some of the situations in the book. Not only that he took on topics that he doesn’t usually talk about. So, we got to see another side of T.K and I liked it.

Review: Make it Reighn By R.J. Castille

Make it Reighn (A Threads Inc. Saga)Make it Reighn by R. J. Castille
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

R.J. Castille is very clever with the title of her latest book Let it Reighn after one of the main characters. You couldn’t help but smile not only at the title but the appropriate cover. Right of the bat R.J. jumped into an amazing threesome with Reighn and two beautiful women. Reighn making note that he crossed off being with a black woman off his bucket list. The sex scenes got hotter as the book went on. She definitely has a gift for that aspect.

Fans of Rebecca Raine fans you are in for a treat with Finding Grey (Return to You, Book 1). This was one of my favorite books that she has written that I have read. She did an amazing job with the characters, I adored the rock star vibe, and the MM romance was an added bonus that topped the cake for me. This was a beautiful storyline that had never been done before. It was unique and fresh and totally outside the box. I love books like that!

Review: Wiley Johns By Ciana Stone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to thank Ciana Stone for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

I have found a new Book Couple not just a new Boyfriend in Ciana Stone’s new book Wiley Johns Heartbreak & Hero’s Book Six!! Yes!! Wiley and Molly are my new fave couple of any of her books!! Both of them had amazing personalities that were off the charts sassy, funny and omg flirtatious!! Wiley just oozed sex appeal and you could see that on the cover of the book! But you could just tell by the way he acted and the way Molly was around him. Those two together made me smile ear to ear. You could not help love them together!

Review: A Matter of Trust By Ciana Stone

A Matter of TrustA Matter of Trust by Ciana Stone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First, I would like to thank Ciana Stone for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

A Matter of Trust by Ciana Stone was unlike any of her other books I have read in the past. I am a huge fan of her mystery series as well as her HeartBreakers and Hero Series. However, not big into paranormal so much-but I thought I would give it a try since I love her other work. She actually surprised me with a unique paranormal twist that was not too far out there!

Review: Brody Judge By Ciana Stone

Brody Judge (Heartbreakers & Heroes, #5)Brody Judge by Ciana Stone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to thank Ciana Stone for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Brody Judge Heartbreakers & Heroes Book 5 is Ciana’s BEST book in the series by far!!! I am a huge fan of Ciana’s and love all of her books and amazing cover’s I must add. However, this book went above and beyond anything she has brought to this series. So much so that I hope she continues down this writing path in her following books. This one with all the multiple personalities this one character had Ciana had you sitting on the edge of your seat to see what would happen next with her. Not to mention there were some shocking revelations too!! My head was spinning in a good way when I was done reading the book.

Review: Deacon Johns By Ciana Stone

Deacon Johns (Heartbreakers & Heroes Book 4)Deacon Johns by Ciana Stone


First, I want to thank Ciana Stone for providing with this book so I may bring you this review.

Deacon Johns Heartbreak & Heroes Book Tour by Ciana Stone not going to lie but piqued my interest by the cover alone this time around. I knew like the rest of the books in the series that this was going to be a good book. She didn’t disappoint. If you have not read her past books I suggest you do. Past characters like Etta and Jasper Jacks make an appearance in this book. I am so happy to hear they are still getting married.

Review: Diving for Pearls Part 5 By Melissa Storm

Diving for Pearls, Part 5 (The Pearl Makers, #5)Diving for Pearls, Part 5 by Melissa Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you for Melissa Storm for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

As you all may know by know I am a very fond of Melissa’s writing and a huge fan of this series. I always look forward to the next installment. As we left the last book I could tell something bad was to happen. However, I thought it was to be worse than it actually was. So, I was happy with the outcome. Although, I think Daisy and Victor are way too young and immature this stage in their lives to be doing what they are doing. They are doing the most responsible thing they know how to do.

I am in love with Melissa’s series Diving for Pearls: The Pearl Makers Series. I look forward to each installment that she comes out with.

First, I would like to thank Melissa Storm for giving me this book so I may provide you this review.

Diving for Pearls, Part I: A Pearl Maker Short Story (The Pearl Makers) by Melissa Storm is part 1 of her Pearl Makers Series. There are 5 books total in the series. If part 1 was written so that it would hook its reader to read the rest of the series-oh it worked big time. Yes, Melissa, I will be reading all the books in that series with a box of tissues beside me!


Begin AgainBegin Again by Christy Newton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First, I would like to thank Christy Newton for providing me this book so I may bring you this review.

Begin again by Christy Newton was such cute romantic story about two broken souls starting over again. This book was full with love, loss, tragedy, exotic animals, learning to let go and opening up your heart again.

After reading this book I have a serious craving for apple pie!! Maisie worked at the Diner where Ryan became a regular at. He could just walk in and Maise would know he wanted apple pie and milk. However, some days he would surprise her and order blueberry. I could picture Ryan and Maisie at the diner vividly.

Review: Wanted By Kelly Elliott

Wanted (Wanted, #1)Wanted by Kelly Elliott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was pleasantly surprised to see Kelly Elliott’s book Wanted in my local library. I am a follower of hers and many authors on Facebook. I was surprised because most Indie authors are not carried by public libraries.

Kelly Elliott’s book Wanted is the first book in the Wanted series. Saved, Faithful, Believe, and Cherished finish out the series. I was lucky to find Wanted, Saved, and Faithful in my library. They should be read in order and not as standalones.

First, I want to thank Tawdra Kandle for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Anyone who knows me knows I am a HUGE fan of the Royals and anything to do with Pop Culture. So, when I saw the cover of Twadra’s The Anti Cinderella book and read the synopsis oh I had to read it. Not to mention she had to release the book right before the big royal wedding!!! Pure genius on her part!!

All the Lovely Children by Andrew Nance is his first novel he has written for adult readers. It is an incredible read that I can see being a smash hit on the big screen!

My Name Is River by Wendy Dunham is an incredibly sweet book based on the bond of that a grandmother and granddaughter has, two best friends from different sides of the tracks, and strong faith in God.

Finding Jake was full of fear, suspense, mystery, grief, emotions, faith, friendships, family, and never giving up hope.

First, I want to thank Morgan St. James and her sister Phyllice Bradner for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Murder on the Menu (Silver Sisters Mysteries, #5) is written by two incredibly talented authors who just happen to be sisters in real life. This book even though it is a series can be read as a standalone. This is unlike the books I have read for Morgan in the past! This book was such a fun read with the unique names, characters and storylines.

Review: No, We Can't Be Friends By Sophie Ranald #BookonTour #Bookouture #NetGalley



He was perfect. Denim-blue eyes, a dazzling smile. And he hadn’t sent me a picture of his junk. Which is about as rare, these days, as a Dodo.

When Sloane met Myles, everything fell into place. He loved a Martini almost as much as she did, shared her passion for four-cheese pizzas, and made her laugh harder than any episode of Friends. She’d found The One at last and she could finally delete Tinder, forgetting all those waste-of-space men she’d never have to date again.
