Average Goodreads Rating: 4.75
Published by: Tyndale House Publishers
Published on: April 1, 2015

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

FBI Agent Laurel Evertson's investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she's vowed to forget Wilmington--and what she sacrificed to put him away--he is now her best lead.

Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer's next targets, and he'll do anything to protect his family--even force interagency cooperation. But he's quickly drawn to Laurel's empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer.

Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington's claims of redemption, or if he's leading them straight into a double cross. 

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  I have either a love-hate relationship with DiAnn Mills. I have read several books by her and they always swing to the extremes.

This one was not my favorite novel by Mills. I thought that it was intriguing. However, the novel was slow in the beginning for me. I thought that it would have been nice if she had got to the action quicker.

I also thought that the ending was a bit rushed. 

However, Mills is an excellent writer. Her suspense was masterfully built. It kept me guessing for a long time. Mills is excellent at creating engaging characters as well.

For fans of romance suspense who don't mind a novel that's a little slower, this one is great. The book is definitely an intense, gripping read. 

So why 3 stars? For the reasons listed above, I thought the beginning was slow and the ending was rushed. However, it was an enjoyable read. 

Can I read the series out of order? Yes, this one can be read as a stand-alone. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Mild violence. 

The Wrap-up: An intense, gripping read, albeit a little slow in the beginning. Not DiAnn Mills's best novel, but definitely an interesting read. 

Love,

Review: Betting on Hope by Debra Clopton

Betting on Hope
(Four of Hearts Ranch Romance, #1)
by Debra Clopton
Adult Inspirational Romance 
Asked to Review
Average Goodreads Rating: 4.40
Published by: Thomas Nelson 
Published on: February 17, 2015
Pages: 320

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

A bet gone wrong. A small town's meddling. And a cowboy intent on saving his ranch.

Maggie Hope is an advice columnist whose background leaves her with little advice to give . . . and it's beginning to show. When Maggie fills in at an interview with champion horse trainer Tru Monahan, the on-camera chemistry between them is undeniable. Maggie's bosses know this is the opportunity she's been looking for to launch her career--and their bank accounts. In order to save her column, Maggie takes Tru up on the bet that he can teach her to ride a quick-stepping cutting horse like any cowgirl, despite the fact that she has never been on a horse. And in the meantime, she can get the scoop on the man under the cowboy hat.

Tru has been on the competition circuit for longer than he'd like, but he knows it's the only way he can afford to keep the Four of Hearts Ranch that means so much to his ailing grandfather. So when his sponsors see the opportunity for Tru's fans to get to know the star on a more intimate level, he knows he must oblige. To his dismay, Maggie not only invades his small town of Wishing Springs, but she also invades his heart, and that is something he cannot let any woman do--for her own good.

In Wishing Springs, Maggie finds what she has always been looking for: a community and a home. But when her past catches up to her, it threatens everything, even the tender hope that this town holds all of her heart's desires.


My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  I'm a sucker for stories about cowboys. If there is a cowboy, I'll read it. So that's what drew my attention.

Other than that, once again I went in without any expectations. The book was a fun, cute read that had a surprising depth to it. 

I really enjoyed the message about having hope despite all the difficulties that we face in life.

I thought the characters were well developed. They seemed realistic and had several flaws. I thought that the relationship between Maggie and Tru was cut, but it was a little forced at times.

All in all, it's a cute story that has a surprising depth to it. For fans of cowboys and inspirational messages, this is a great read. 

So why 3.5 stars? The surprising depth to the novel kicked the novel up to 3.5 for me. It wasn't quite good for 4 stars, but I really enjoyed it. 

Warnings/Side-notes: None really. It does address teen pregnancy. 

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable novel that talks about having hope throughout. 

Love,

Review: Between Now and Never by Laura Johnston

Between Now and Never
by Laura Johnston
Young Adult 
Asked to Review
Average Goodreads Rating: 3.81
Published on: March 31,2015 

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

Buh boom, buh boom. 

My heart thrusts with a force that takes me by surprise. Telling me something I don’t understand. A splitting pain, a longing to slip back under. They tell me I was in a hit-and-run, but I can’t remember what happened that night. All I know is that I woke up with pictures in my pocket, a card from one of those photo booths in the mall. And I’m in the pictures. Cody Rush. Me and…

Julianna.

Her brother was there that night, and my dad, the FBI agent, was the one who put her mom behind bars. What’s the connection? And why won’t Julianna talk to me now? Somehow, she holds the key to it all, and getting close–real close—to her for the answers I need will be no hardship at all…


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  I had no expectations going into this book. I saw it on Netgalley and thought why not. 

This book was interesting and different than a lot of other books that I've read. The writing was engaging. I thought that the characters were also well developed.

This book's plot intrigued me. I don't know why but any time a character temporarily loses his memory it makes for a good story for me.

I thought that the book had interesting things to say about class and self-discovery. 

This book is one that I recommend for fans of realistic young adult.

The book didn't blow me away, but it was a fun read. 

So why 3 stars? In my opinion, the book just kind of ended. There wasn't much closure for me. I would have liked it to go a chapter longer. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Mild references to drugs and violence. 

The Wrap-up: A fun read. For Johnston's sophomore novel, it was quite good. I'll be keeping tabs on this author. 

Love,

But first thing's first. Let's introduce the author and the synopsis of the book.

Author's Bio:

Andrea Murray has been teaching English forlonger than most of her students have been alive. She has taught everything from junior high language arts to concurrent credit freshman composition. She lives in a very small town in Arkansaswith her precocious daughter, energetic son, and racecar-driving husband.

Synopsis:  

She will finally learn the truth, but it will change everything. 

After barely escaping the Liaisons’ facility with their lives, Vivian Cartwright and her friends are on the run. Vivian is determined to find her long-lost father armed with the clue

s she stole from her uncle’s twisted mind. 


But before she can begin her quest, she must help Wyck locate his mother. The journey brings them closer than ever and creates growing tension between Wyck and Easton, making Vivian more and more confused about her feelings for them. 

In this shocking conclusion of The Vivid Trilogy, Vivian comes face to face with a surprising twist that turns her world upside-down.


You can buy this book at Amazon or add it on your Goodreads shelf here

My Review: 

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel as part of the tour.  I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This series was an interesting one to read. I thought the first one had a lot of potential but failed to execute. The second one was actually quite good. I actually considered giving it 4 stars. The action was great and I loved the interactions of the characters. 

Basically after reading book 1, I went into book 2 expecting it to be quite average, maybe even below average. It actually greatly exceeded my expectations. So I went into book 3 with high expectations. 

Instead, I felt a little let-down. The bar was set high by book 2. I was really excited to see the conclusion of the series. I found the ending to be a little bit anti-climatic. I was expecting more of a finale. 

Vivian's character didn't really change enough in the series for me. My favorite character actually ended up being Wyck. He was the one who made the book for me. I think that's why I loved book 2. He was a very big part of that book.

There was just so much going on in this book. 

Having said that, I did enjoy the book. Like I've previously mentioned Murray did a great job at creating an interesting and engaging world. 

Murray is an engaging author. One who I think has great potential. She writes original stories, and her writing is actually quite good. I expect this author to keep getting better and better. 

So why 3 stars? It was a let-down from book 2. Book 2 was so good and book 3 didn't quite live up to it. 

Can I read the series out of order? You can. Andrea does a good enough job telling the backstory, but naturally, it's better to read them all. Plus, book 2 is so good I'd recommend reading it before reading this one. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Very vague references to sex. It's definitely appropriate for readers of all ages. 

The Wrap-up: This book brings the end to an interesting series. I think Murray has great potential as a writer. Her second book was so close to being right on the mark. I'll be keeping an eye on this author in the hopes that in her next book, she nails it right on the head. 

Love,

Danica Page

My Review

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel as part of the tour.  I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I read the first book in the series a few months ago as part of another blog tour for the series. I thought that the first book was interesting but had a slow start. I was, however, curious to see what happened in the series. So when I was offered the chance to read the book, I decided to go ahead and read it.

The sequel was drastically better than the first one. It wasn't slow at all. The book was fast paced and kept me interested the entire time. I thought that the characters were better developed in the sequel. 

There were still several grammar errors that I found quite distracting and some issues with tense really bugged me.

However, on the whole, I liked the novel. I thought the novel presented an intriguing plot. I loved the conlflict and the world that Murray created. I think fans of sci-fi/fantasy will enjoy this one.

The only thing that bugged me about the characters was Vivian's tendency to play the victim "wo-is-me" card. I get that she'd been through a lot, but I kept waiting for her to snap out of it.

This definitely isn't a slow bridge novel either. 

If you are looking for an interesting fantasy novel, check this one out. 

So why 3 stars? I thought this was much better than the first one and almost gave it 4 stars. However, the errors I found knocked it down to a three as well as some other parts of the novel that I just didn't think worked. 

Can I read the series out of order? You could. The story can read as a stand-alone. Naturally, however, you'd be missing the full effect of the story. If you do read the first one, just be warned it's slow in the beginning. 

Warnings/Side-notes: None. 

The Wrap-up: A great development to the series. It made me very curious to see what happens in the third one. (Note: After having read the third in the series, I'd have to say this was my favorite in the series by far.) 

Love,

Danica Page

Debut Review: Waiting for April by Jamie Loren

Waiting for April 
by Jamie Loren 
Young/New Adult 
Asked to Review
Average Goodreads Rating: 4.44
Published by: Momentum Books 
Published on: February 12, 2015

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
April Fletcher has died nineteen times... but she doesn't know it.
As far as April is concerned, she's just a normal seventeen-year-old, looking forward to spending spring break with her friends and going to college in the fall. April doesn't know she has never lived past her eighteenth birthday, nor does she realize that Scott Parker, her best friend, is actually her childhood sweetheart and fiancé from her very first life.
For nineteen-year-old Scott Parker, spending quality time with his soul mate has proved difficult ever since her tragic death in 1729. Since then he has lost her an additional eighteen times—each of her deaths more devastating than the last, and each of her births wiping the slate of her memory clean. Unable to save her but unwilling to give up, Scott has to hide the fact he's immortal—and will be until April confesses her love again.
But this time, things have changed. April has denied her feelings for him, is dating someone else, and with her eighteenth birthday fast approaching, their friendship is falling to pieces. Fearing their souls are irrevocably drifting apart, Scott must race against the clock to win her heart and save her life.
Or risk losing her forever.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This is a book that I picked up to read solely based on the cover. I saw it on Netgalley and thought it looked pretty. 

Usually, that leads to a book that really wasn't all that good. This time, I was pleasantly surprised. I thought Loren's idea for this novel was actually quite original and intriguing.

I liked the characters of Scott and April. They both had flaws and quirks. I especially liked Scott's character. He was interesting to read about. Watching him battle what to do about April was very intriguing. 

The story had good pacing. It never really felt bogged down. The only thing that I think could have been better was the supporting cast of characters weren't very well developed. I also thought that the ending was a little bit rushed. 

After that ending, there better be a sequel. That's all I have to say. 

So why 4 stars? It was intriguing and different. I thought that the author explored intriguing concepts. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Okay this is a hard one to classify. This scene had some references to sex. They were more detailed than most YA novels, and yet not as detailed as most new adult novels. I'd recommend for 17+.

The Wrap-up: If you're looking for an intriguing novel that's different than novels you've previously read, then give this one a try. Loren's debut is a great read, and like I said, after that ending I really hope there's a sequel. 

Love,

Pages: 336

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

After a youth filled with tragedy and upheaval, Sarah Miller's life is finally settled with all echoes of the past silent at last. She happily calls Sanctuary her home and spends her days teaching at the local school.

Sarah's joy at her recent reunion with her sister, Hannah, and meeting the niece she didn't know she had is too soon interrupted when Deputy Sheriff Paul Gleason informs Sarah her sister has been killed. 

As she learns more about Hannah's death, the circumstances are eerily similar to their parents' murder. Sarah enlists Paul's help in digging deeper into the murders the police are dismissing as burglaries gone wrong. Paul's concern encourages Sarah's growing feelings for him, but as their investigation peels back the layers of lies almost twenty years old, they get close to uncovering the truth one person will do anything to hide--even if that means coming after the last remaining members of the Miller family.


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I've read a few novels by this author, but I didn't really go into it with any expectations.

The beginning confused me a little bit, but after the book sucked me right in. I thought that certain parts of the book lagged and were slow. But other than that, I really enjoyed the book. I thought that there was a lot of intrigue and suspsense.

Yes, I did guess a lot of the plot twists, but I still found it an enjoyable read. I thought that certain parts lagged. I would have liked to see more romance too. However, I did enjoy watching the relationship between Sarah and her niece.

For readers looking for a suspense novel that focuses on family relationships, then this one is one that comes recommended. 

So why 3 stars? I thought certain parts lagged, but other than that, I really enjoyed it. 

Can I read the series out of order? Yes, I did. I wasn't lost. This one can be read as a stand-alone. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Mild violence.

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable read that kept me interested until the very end.

Average Goodreads Rating: 3.90
Published by: Atria Books 
Published on: March 31, 2015
Pages: 384 

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


Joshua Miles has spent his early twenties spinning his wheels. Working dead-end jobs and living at home has left him exhausted and uninspired, with little energy to pursue his passion for graphic art. Until he meets Gemma Henare, a vivacious out-of-towner from New Zealand. What begins as a one-night stand soon becomes a turning point for Josh. He can't get Gemma out of his head, even after she has left for home, and finds himself throwing caution to the wind for the first time in his life.

It's not long before Josh is headed to New Zealand with only a backpack, some cash, and Gemma's name to go on. But when he finally tracks her down, he finds his adventure is only just beginning. Equally infatuated, Gemma leads him on a whirlwind tour across the beautiful country, opening Josh up to life, lust, love, and all the messy heartache in between. Because, when love drags you somewhere, it might never let go even when you know you have to say goodbye.


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I thought that this novel was intriguing and well written, but several parts of the story seemed to lag for me. It wasn't quite as gripping as I wanted it to be.

Having said that, I did enjoy the novel. I thought it was well written, and I loved the travel aspects behind this novel. I loved the backdrop of New Zealand and how the book showed their travels throughout the country. Halle really dove into the culture of New Zealand and I loved that.

As far as the characters go, I really liked Josh. Yeah, he was kind of crazy to go to New Zealand for a girl, but hey crazier things have been done in the suit of love. 

Gemma was a more complex character. At parts, I wanted to beat her over the head and knock some sense into her, in other moments I perfectly understood her, and so forth. She was interesting to read about.

This book had me laughing out loud at moments which is always something that I highly enjoy. 

This is one that I'd recommend for fans of travel books or new adult. 

So why 3 stars? It lagged in some parts. I felt like the pacing could have been faster.

Warnings/Side-notes: Several instances of strong language, sexual content, and drinking. For 17+. 

The Wrap-up: A fun book about traveling, adventures, love, loss, heartbreak, and self-discovery.

Review: One Night by AJ Pine

One Night 
(Only You, #1)
by AJ Pine   
New Adult 
Asked to Review
Average Goodreads Rating: 4.05
Published by: InterMix
Published on: April 21, 2015

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


When she lost it all, Jess decided to cope by living a lie. 


But you can’t keep on pretending forever…

Twenty-one-year-old Jess used to have everything—a loyal best friend, a boyfriend she loved, and a future that was right on track. But in a single night, her whole world changed.

Now, Jess lives for the impersonal connection of drunken hook-ups and to-go coffee cups in the morning. All she needs is one night to pretend everything is fine…until she meets Adam.

Thanks to a sports injury, gorgeous, charming basketball star Adam Carson is stuck in physical therapy at the hospital where Jess interns—giving her the perfect opportunity to see his sweet, considerate nature and making her realize that maybe she does want something more.

But while Adam might be the best thing that’s happened to Jess in a long time, letting him past her carefully constructed walls means letting him know what happened...and why he'd never want her for more than one night.


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This book wasn't at all what I expected. It actually discussed themes that were much deeper than what I expected from a novel seemingly professing to be about "one-night stands." I actually really liked Adam. He seemed like a great character who I had a really easy time liking. He was quite approachable and nice. 

Jess on the other hand was hard for me to relate to. She had been dealt a crappy life in hand and some terrible things had happened. Things we don't know about until the end of the novel. So it is understandable why she acted like she did. She was just very self-centered, selfish, and kind of rude. Now I'm not saying she wasn't a likable character. She was just complex. You pitied her and liked her, but she did some really jerky things.

So if you're looking for a protagonist to love, this is not the right book for you. 

The writing was fairly good. I thought some parts of the book were a little bit slow, but on the whole I did enjoy it. 

So why 3 stars? It just didn't stand out in any particular way for me. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Meant for a more mature audience due to sexual content. It's relatively tame as far as NA novels go. However, there are also several references to drinking. 

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable novel with a surprising depth to it. 

Love,

Review: Breathe Annie Breathe by Miranda Kenneally

New/Young Adult 
Asked to Review
Average Goodreads Rating: 4.07
Published by: Sourcebook Fire
Published on: July 15, 2015
Pages: 306

Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


Annie hates running. No matter how far she jogs, she can’t escape the guilt that if she hadn’t broken up with Kyle, he might still be alive. So to honor his memory, she starts preparing for the marathon he intended to race.

But the training is even more grueling than Annie could have imagined. Despite her coaching, she’s at war with her body, her mind—and her heart. With every mile that athletic Jeremiah cheers her on, she grows more conflicted. She wants to run into his arms…and sprint in the opposite direction. For Annie, opening up to love again may be even more of a challenge than crossing the finish line.


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: In one word this book was unbelievable. I absolutely adored it. Kenneally has always been one of my favorite YA authors and this was easily one of the best ones in the series.

The characters just felt so real. Annie was a character that I think was very relatable. She just felt realistic. She just lost her boyfriend and is running a race to honor him. She's got tough family situations, but Annie wasn't whiny. She took charge of her own future and I loved that. I liked that she didn't just sit around and mope. 

Naturally, the writing was fantastic. This book drew me in from the very first page and didn't let me go until I'd read the very last page. It was a read that wasn't easy to put down. 

The best type of books are the ones that make you think, that make you feel. This book was definitely one of those. I adored it. Definitely recommended. 

So why 4 stars? Not quite 5 stars, but it came pretty close. 

Can I read the series out of order? Yes. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Some minor references to sex. 15+. 

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable novel that captured my interest from the very first page. Definitely recommended and can't wait to see what the author comes up with next. 

Love,
