Review:


I've had a very good time reading this book during a hot summer day.

I loved the characters,every single one is very well depicted and has a unique personality.
My favorite is our heroine,Georgie,who tries to make everyone else happy only causing more troubles and making her story even more funny.
I couldn't stop reading Georgie's journey because I was intrigued,I wanted to know how and when she would have found her happily ever after.
I would have liked a long long epilogue but my heart is still pretty content like this.

This was my first read of a Portia Macintosh story but it won't be the last because I've really enjoyed her writing.

Eight by E.S. Carter


Release Date: 06.13.2017


Synopsis:

I'm sorry for your loss. 
Why do people say that? 
When someone you love is taken from you, when a part of you dies along with them, you haven't lost them like you would your car keys or mobile phone. They aren't stuck down the side of the sofa or left in the ignition of your car for you to find later. You haven't absentmindedly put them somewhere and forgotten. You will never lose them because they live in you. 
The soul crushing hurt that burns your lungs with every breath you take comes from knowing where they are and not being with them. 
The ugly and real definition of grief is being left behind. 
I'm sorry they left you. 
I'm sorry you are alone. 
I'm sorry it hurts to breathe. 
Loss; it doesn't even compare.
She was my first love. 
She is my last love. 
I am an empty husk who pretends to be filled with enough love for those of us she left behind. 
Our little girl and newborn son need me. 
I am both mother and father now. 
I am hollow and empty. 
I am a shell. 
So why does the girl with the face of an angel and eyes that mirror my emptiness, look at me like I'm her everything?
*Book #6 in the 'Love by Numbers' series. Can be read as a standalone.*


Review:


Eight was a good read.
I loved how E.S. Carter once again wrote an emotional story that will move you thanks to such an incredible writing and relatable characters.

Josh journey is about grieving and surviving and learning to live again for yourself and your dear ones.
Our Hero is drowning in his pain,it is so suffocating he can't even function enough to take care of his kids but thanks to a meddling family that will never leave him alone and a change of scenery he will finally find the strength to go on.

These characters will find a way to your heart, making you cry and smile throughout the book.

Redemption by Kelly Moran


Release Date: 06.13.2017


Synopsis:

Nearly the last remaining member of Olivia Cattenach's family has just died overseas and left her overcome by grief. But when a soldier shows up at her ranch with a final message from her brother, she finds new purpose. Nathan Roldan is as formidable as they come. Bulging muscles and inked to boot, he looks like every bit the bad boy he claims to be. Except, under his shuttered gaze and behind his walls lies a gentle giant. Determined to carry out her brother's wishes, she chips away at Nate's layers and discovers more pain than any person should ever have to endure. And a passion she never dreamed was possible.

He's not the hero she thinks he is...

Nate's mistake got a fellow comrade killed, and a deathbed promise to take care of the guy's sister lands him in Wyoming with the hope of redemption. But he wasn't expecting...her. Beautiful, witty, and sweet, Olivia is everything he doesn't deserve. Born a nothing, he'll die a nothing. Though guilt is a living thing, temptation is too hard to resist. Somehow, she's unleashing his restraint and unearthing feelings he buried long ago. He wants her. More, he's worried he needs her. She's trying to save him, but when she learns the truth, he'll lose the only happiness he's ever known.

Review:


This story is so good I didn't want to finish it too soon.
I recommend you all to read it if you like your romantic stories full of emotions and chemistry and struggles and hope.

Nate is an ex soldier,he was released from the army after an accident that cost him a few months in a german medical center and the life of his only friend.
He went to the Cattenach ranch to honor a promise, to take care of Justin's sister,but he didn't know yet that he will also find his friend last gift over there.
My favorite character is Olivia,I loved her strength,her pure heart and her ability to empathize with every other character.I liked how she subtly (and not) pushed Nate out of his shell,making him show his real self and making him understand his real value.

You cannot not love these characters and cheer for them to find their happily ever after.
I can't wait to read the second book in this series.

Review:



Sweet Home Cowboy was a nice,cute book.
I've had a very good time reading this story,my heart melted and I couldn't stop smiling till the end.

Elena and Wes are some lovely characters,their chemistry is clear since their first encounter at the chocolate shop but their lives are so different that they have more than one reason to slow down their relationship.
Let me sum up by saying that all is well that ends well.

I loved Elena "take no prisoners" personality,she is so adamant to know her great grandfather and to make him finally feel alive after a long time.

This was one of my favorite story in this series,i hope to read more about Marietta's villagers soon.

Unrequited Alice by Sarah Louise Smith


Release Date: 03.16.2017



Synopsis:

"I stared at my suitcase, contemplating the following three facts:
1.After months of planning, it was finally time for Hannah’s hen weekend.
2.In just one more month, she’d be getting married to Ed.
3.I really had to fall out of love with Ed before the wedding."

A bridesmaid really shouldn’t be in love with the groom...but Alice just can’t help herself. Ed is her perfect man, and she can’t get him out of her head.

Until she meets Toby – who offers to help her move on. But what if he’s just setting her up for an even bigger fall? 



Review:


This story was so nice but at times a little hard to read because our heroine's life is not too joyful.

Alice is a character that grew on me page after page,she is not too lucky,she fell in love with her friend's fiancèe and she can't try to win him over.I've appreciated her moral integrity to not act on her feelings and to endure every moment shared with them putting a smile on her face.
At the end of the book I cheered for her and supported her choices like she was one of my real friends because she deserves to be happy.

This was the first time I've read a book written by Sarah Louise Smith but it won't be the last,I already have another of her books ready on my reader.
