I'm in AWE that Ms. Pillatzke was able to tell such a DYNAMIC tale full of MYSTERY, INTRIGUE, DRAMA, ACTION-PACKED SUSPENSE, and with enough RAGING ILLICIT-PASSION, that literally will leave you QUIVERING and DESPERATE for you own RELEASE, in just less than 100 pages, is quite a SPECTACULAR feat within itself!

Ms. Pillatzke, you are an INSPIRATION to us, the reader, for you have GRANTED us permission, a glimpse into the world you have created. We become LOST in a TRULY EXQUISITE realm, somewhere we can ESCAPE from our mundane lives. That is the GREATEST gift you can bestow upon a person! THANK YOU, WITHOUT-A-DOUBT, THIS NOVEL DESERVES NOTHING LESS THAN A 10 STAR RATING!

Review for "Somebody's Lover," by Jasmine Haynes!


Once tragedy has struck a well-dynamically formed family, there's nothing left but blame, loneliness, desuetude, and despair for all that are involved, especially for a widow, and her children. However, to be able to obtain a slice of salvation, a ray of sunshine, to break free from the darkness, to be able to deal with the challenges of everyday life is one to be desired.

That's what Taylor is in dire need of, a man to make her feel as though she is the most desirable woman he has ever seen, even if it's just for a few hours. Nevertheless, she NEVER expecting that man to be her brother-in-law, Jace.

Once sparks fly between these two, they NEVER end. Craving each other's touch, as though no other, is the SWEETEST drug imaginable, and to be able to possess that is EXTREMELY inspiring. It's as though having lighting strike the same place twice, rare, and unobtainable at times, yet to possess it twice in one person's lifetime, is absolutely ASTONISHING!

I immensely ENJOYED this novel, at times it reminded me of Lorelei James, "Cowgirls Don't Cry," and "Cowgirl Up & Ride." Obviously very different scenarios, yet similar qualities, Ms. Haynes possessed the same finesse that Ms. James does with her storylines. Also having a multitude of SIZZLING, SCORCH THE PAGES, love scenes--too boot!

I've become an instant fan of Ms. Haynes, already purchasing the remainder books within this series! This novel was PHENOMENAL, it kept me GLUED to the pages, wondering if and when Taylor and Jace might or might NOT be discovered. What would the rest of the family think of their union?  Could Taylor and Jace forge a future together as Lou's death casts a shadow above them?

You're going to have to discover that on your own! I DON'T kiss & tell!  >;o)~~~
The reason this novel hit so close to home for me, is that my Nonna (Grandmother), married her brother-in-law after her sister passed away. She helped raise my Nonno's (Grandfather's) sons, her nephews, and eventually had more children with him (my mother being one of them). My Nonna fell madly, deeply, and irrevocably in LOVE with my Nonno, and he treated her like GOLD, everyday--for the rest of his life!  :**)

"Review for "Temporary Tricks," by Saranna DeWylde"

Temporary Tricks


The novels I tend to purchase are when men of power and money lose complete and utter control of their immensely tight reins. When a singular woman of intelligent wit, who can spar with the likes of them, never revealing  her true superiority of not being know as a common wallflower, to be casted aside. All the while, as she comes crashing down into that particular man's well-devised universe, and devastating everything he holds dear, his livelihood, and his heart.

Those are the novels I hold dear to my heart, as I do with this novel written by Ms. DeWylde. She has bewitched me her writing, it's absolutely OUTSTANDING! I'm intoxicated with the characters, and storylines she has created, with NOT just this novel, but also, "How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days!" I will DEFINITELY be purchasing MORE novels by her in the near future!

Review for "Hot Mess," by Mara Ryder!



My heart has been served onto a SILVER platter. Waiting for which ONE of these characters to STAB their forks & knives into my heart, and WITHDRAWAL the FIRST piece into their THIRST-HUNGRY mouths!

I'm being SWALLOWED-UP-WHOLE by this series! No wonder why Sara Fawkes recommended, "Beautiful Trash," the first of Scarlet Briar, this series is as GROUND-BREAKING as hers is! It possesses so MANY twists & turns that I'm CONFUSED on which direction is UP or DOWN! I feel as though I'm like Alice being PUSHED & FREE-FALLING without a cord DOWN the rabbit hole, where Cherie will STOP on this adventure NO one knows!

Just when you think it CANNOT get any worse or better for Cherie, you're mouth continues to remain OPEN awaiting to catch flies! I've literally SCREAMED, "WHAT & OMG," simultaneously at the TOP of my LUNGS, while my husband slept and terrifying him at the same time!


The novels listed below are just a few I've enjoyed IMMENSELY, for they are the ones that have GRIPPED my very SOUL within its vise, NEVER to be released!
