Review for The Magiker by Charles Dennis

This book wasn't really my cup of tea. That being said it was still somewhat interesting.  I really didn't like the characters, and everything felt kind of erratic to me.  I liked the descriptions; they really brought the story to life. I don't really like how things turned out in the end, and even if I didn't care for the characters it was disappointing.  Even though this story wasn't for me; I'm giving it 3 stars because it was at least interesting (in a kooky kind of way), so it was entertaining.  I probably won't read anymore from this author, but I think they create an interesting world.

Review for Crazy for You by Juliet Rosetti

This book was a lot of fun! I didn't read the first book, and I didn't feel like it made too much of a difference.  This book had great adventures, and it was very fast paced.  The romance was cute, but I'd like a little more emotion, but I get that the main characters relationship was trying to keep the book lighthearted.  I liked the feistiness of the main female character, and here determination.  Some of the events they get involved in were odd, but they create funny scenarios.  All in all, this book was a fun, quick read with a likable main character.

Review for Endless by Amanda Gray

I really liked the time travel aspect and the flashbacks. I've read other books that deal with the Romanovs, and this I think handled it in a different way, which was good. I liked the mystery, and the cult aspect. Secret clans are an exciting element to a story. I liked the main characters, I don't like pouty, why me!, characters, so it was nice to see how they handled their problems quickly and with intellegence. I hope there is a sequel! I will definitely read the next book! I need to know what happens!

Review for Vampires Need Not...Apply? by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

I loved this one!  I read the first book in the series, Accidentally in Love With... A God?, and I was a bit disappointed, I gave it 3 stars. Vampires Need Not...Apply? was wonderful! I'll have to go back and read the previous 2 books in the series.  I liked the involvement of previous characters, and the current main characters were really likable.  I especially liked Ixtab; I thought she was a wonderfully strong woman.  I liked all the events that occurred; they really kept the book moving, and I zoomed through it.  Definitely a great read for anyone who likes fun, supernatural books.  I will definitely be reading the rest of the series; I'm very eager to see what happens!

review Only You by Stephanie Feagan (Trinity Feagan)

I love this series! This book was one of my favorites in the series. I look forward to more books in the series and more books by this author.  I like the involvement of previous characters, and I really felt for the main characters. I liked that this story takes place when the previous story was also in motion; its good to see how events line up.  This a unique series and I interested in where it ends up. Great read!

Review for Dream Girl by S.J. Lomas

I really like the idea of this story, but it felt disjointed to me. I liked the main characters, but not some of their actions. I don't like when characters are wishy washy; acting one way one moment then a quick moment later acting or feeling a different way. This book felt more like a prequel; there wasn't a lot of information. It felt rushed. I'm going to be optimistic, and read further in this series, because I really like the plot. I just hope the character development becomes stronger.

Review for Redemption by C.J. Barry

I absolutely loved it! The author, C.J. Barry, does an excellent job with the imagery in Redemption.  The way the book is written puts such vivid images in your mind, it's like watching a movie.  I loved the way this book fleshed out from the beginning; the tone and the pace are really great. I read this book in one sitting. I really liked the heaven and hell aspect, and the involvement of demons; both inner and actual demons.  Both of the main characters were excellent, and how they change through out the story is great to see, and I was pulling for them from the beginning.  I definitely will read more books from this C.J. Barry.  I enjoyed the whole book; it's definitely a must read!

Review The Marriage Merger by Jennifer Probst

Loved it! It took me awhile to get to it, since I wanted to read the previous books. I'm glad I got this book, it got me started on a great series! This one was my favorite, but I loved them all.

Dead Sexy Dragon by Lolita Lopez

Loved how it got right into the story! Both of the main characters were great. I wanted it to be a lot longer! I definitely will read the rest of the books on this series, and any others by Lolita Lopez.

Review Last Chance Summer by Hope Ramsey Short story

I like this series, and was glad to get this book. I really liked it! What I didn't like was the abrupt ending. All in all, it was a good last chance story.

Review of Accidentally in Love With a God by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

It was okay. I had a hard time liking the main characters. I like the story though. The characters were really jarring, and it was hard to feel the connection between them. I'm going to continue with the next in the series, because it is a quick, fun read. This book was more humor then feeling. I do look forward to the other books in the series, I'm hoping for some more likable characters.                  

Review Temptation Bay by Anna Sullivan

I really liked it! The main character, Maggie, got on my nerves a bit with how harsh she was, but I understood where she was coming from. The story was really great, and I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the book. I'm looking forward to more books in the series; especially with that cliffhanger! I liked the small town vibe, and it's nice to see strong female characters. All in all, I recommend Temptation Bay, to any reader who likes small town mysteries.

Review for Delectable by Adrianne Lee

I loved it! Delectable had lots of heart, and the story was cute and sweet! I really look forward to future books in this series! I will also look for other books by Adrianne Lee. Delectable has that small town feel, and I throughly enjoyed all the characters. The 2 main characters had great chemistry, and I was rooting for them from the beginning. Delectable is a great start to the Big Pie Sky series! I'll be keeping a look out for the next book.

Review for Hard to Handle by Jessica Lemmon

Really great story! Lots of heart. This is the first book I've read by the author, Jessica Lemmon. I plan to read the rest of the books in this series, and look into other series by Jessica Lemmon. The main characters were both likable. Sadie got a little on my nerves, but I got where she was coming from. It was nice to see Aiden taking charge, and going after what he wanted. It's nice to have a story about a strong man, who isn't sleeping with every woman who glances his way. Looking forward to reading the first in the series Temping the Billionaire, and the next in the series The Millionaire Affair. Great series, and heartfelt writing. It's a quick read, and makes you want to keep reading.

Review for Love Rehab Jo Piazza

This book was cute! Lots of women power, and helping woman feel better about themselves. Having a post break up support group was a really great idea! So you have help to keep you from doing embarrassing things to try to win back guys who don't really deserve you back. There were lots of fun characters and the humor made the story fun. On the romance side there wasn't too much romance, it was more of a back story. I feel the main point is help women empower themselves, and understand their value. I will look forward to more from author Jo Piazza. Cute, Funny, Quick read!

Review for Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones

I really liked the idea of the story.  There were a few things that made it only a 3 star.  I was leaning towards 4 stars, but in the end I went with 3 stars. The main character Amy felt scattered, and weak to me. Liam felt almost too dominate. I don't like how as the reader I still don't have a clear idea to why she's on the run, and why she waits so long before deciding to look for answers. I'm looking forward to the next book. I hope the main characters grow, and we have a better understanding of why they act the way they do.  Right now I feel like I only see the surface of these characters. I really enjoyed the who mystery aspect of the story, I just want more inside details.  Looking forward to future books by this author and I plan to finish this series.  I have hope!
