PelicanFreak’s 4-star review:

First of all, this book is very professionally presented and you’d never know it’s a debut release from a new author. The formatting is beautiful and the editing and proofing are really well done. Clearly a lot of work and love went into this book to give it a professional appearance.

If you want the short version:
Likeable. Lots of drama, fun to read. Good characters. Well-edited. Predictable but still addictive.

If you want the detailed version:
Editing/Proofing:
5 stars
Found only a couple minor typos, nothing that distracted from the reading experience.

Formatting:
5 stars
Beautiful!

Cover:
5 stars
I love that it’s not quite like every other romance cover out there. It’s pretty and still relevant.
(Also: The title is perfection! It describes the book simply in both metaphorical and literal senses.)

Continuity:
4 stars

Character design:
4 stars
Characters are fairly well done. Not always perfect continuity with the personalities but it’s Book 1 in a series and they’ve got room to grow. Still the reader gets at least the gist of who they are and a bit of what they’ve been through. Perceptive readers probably get a peek into what’s to come for the other characters too.

POV:
5 stars
The reader is treated to rotating POVs, first person. There’s never any confusion as to who is speaking, it’s done flawlessly.

The Story:

The book started out FULL of action, drama, regret and pain. It is a brilliantly tragic opening and sucked me right in. That’s about all of the military action there is, however the lives of the main characters are forever changed as a result of those moments so I’d still say it’s okay to deem this a military romance or military drama.

From the first few pages, I can easily predict how the whole book will play out, so I won’t give any originality or unpredictability points, but that’s 99% of media these days. What matters is that despite this, I wasn’t bored. In fact, I was hooked – I liked the characters and wanted to know all that I could about them. I love that baking and cooking are prevalent and the MCs all move to the South. These are all things I could relate to and just made it that much more dynamic and fun to follow, with little side adventures and food to dream about. 🙂

Some of the sex scenes… they’d start out with plenty of heat but inevitably there’d by a cheesy line or something that I just couldn’t quite get into. I did overall appreciate the sex scenes though, for not exactly being the same old that I usually find. Robbins manages to describe them a bit differently than everyone else, which is refreshing.

The last fifteen percent or so kind of dragged for me. After being so hooked and unable to put it down for the first seventy-plus percent, it took me a little effort to get through it. I probably could take or leave the last bit. But ultimately am really impressed that this is a debut novel, it seems Robbins is a natural and I hope she keeps writing. She’s made me a fan.

I’d give the story… somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars for keeping me hooked, but lacking originality. Overall, I’d give the book as a whole 4 stars.

 

It’s finally here- The 4th book in Anne Conley’s Pierce Securities Series: Grab.

Jordan Rocco has just received a medical discharge from the Marines and is now working with his brother, Evan, at Pierce Securities. He’s struggling to find his place among these men who have a brotherhood that doesn’t seem to include him. Jordan’s only saving grace is the woman across the hall in his apartment building, with her smart mouth and tight curves.

Mia is wholly focused on making enough money at her crappy job to bring her sister home to live with her, instead of globe-trotting with her mother and the latest in a long line of losers. A boyfriend is not in the cards. But a couple of nights with the hottie across the hallway—to release some pent-up frustrations—wouldn’t be remiss. When she’s grabbed from her apartment in the night, Jordan witnesses the crime, helpless to stop things.

He’s suddenly got a new mission: Before the worst can happen, he has to save the woman who has come to mean more to him than he realized.

***WARNING*** This book has a vague description of events that may cause triggers.

…is how Marissa describes her books when asked. She doesn’t seek to write any

particular genre, style, or length, only following her gut instincts and the

lead of her characters. The Life of Anna crosses many genre lines including

erotica, suspense, psychological thriller, horror, political conspiracy,

paranormal, and romance.

Marissa’s story of Anna began with a dream about being kidnapped with Adam

Savage from Mythbusters (Yes, really). Over the next year and a half, it

morphed into the story that is now known as “The Life of Anna.” She

has several other stories in progress, one of which is based on her kidnapped

dream called Distorted Hope.

Marissa stays busy homeschooling her two elementary age sons, running her

household, fending off two adorable kittens, and interacting with her readers

on social media. She is a self-proclaimed geek and has a deep love for all

things Doctor Who. She is also actively pursuing a more natural lifestyle,

which includes essential oils, natural cleaning products, and whole, organic

foods. Marissa’s addictions include the aforementioned Doctor Who, the Science

and History Channels, anything chocolate mint, vintage books, cute kitty cats, and laughter.

I’m a big fan of Kane’s whimsical writing and elven worlds  – I’m not generally an elf person but her Book 1 in this series, Ribbon of Darkness hooked me.

Each of these books is a different situation, different characters, etc. – they can be read in any order, as standalones.

The book:

Here’s Pelican Freak’s 4 star review A Whisper of Rue!

A Whisper of Rue is par for the Trouble with Elves course – the lingo is cute and totally fitting. Kane is a great themer – (My Disney-brainwashed self approves).

Rue starts out mysteriously – we meet Rue, and are juuuust getting to know her when she finds the mysterious earpiece and the voice on the other end. It only becomes more filled-with-mystery as it goes on, though I did predict the outcome… (I predict everything though and I don’t think most people would predict this storyline.)

It was super fun travelling with Rue to see if my predictions would be right – and the banter between herself and Gage. Lots of whimsy with fairies, sparklees and a trippy journey. There’s mystery, suspense, action, drama and sex. This book has it all – and it’s all wrapped up neatly into a fun little quickie. Highly recommend.
