review: the silent patient, by alex michaelides

The Silent Patient wasn’t at all what I thought it was going to be and I’m not entirely sure what that even was. It was recommended to me by a friend who listened to it on audio, so I followed suit and did the same. I think I have a million credits on Audible and I just keep forgetting to use them…at any rate. I would classify The Silent Patient as dramatic suspense with a...

the shadows, by j.r. ward

The Warden, as J.R. Ward is affectionately known by her many devoted fans, has done it once again. The Shadows, the edible bookmark’s first 5-bookmark read, was an emotional story that drew on the strong history and character development of those we’ve grown to know and love. And true to form, Ward left us chomping at the bit (pun intended) for more. I finished The Shadows over a week ago and I still get emotional thinking about it. As...

soaring, by kristen ashley

Big fan! I’m hoping my streak of bad reads is over. As I’ve stated, repeatedly, Kristen Ashley is one of my most fave romance authors. Her characters are real and more often than not, relatable. I’ve read almost all of her series and stand-alone’s, which comes to 20+ books, so when I say I’m a fan, I mean I’m a fan. Anyway… Soaring is part of Ashley’s Magdalene series. Unfortunately, I did not love the...

archer’s voice, by mia sheridan

So when I burst into tears and had to re-read numerous parts of this book, I concluded that this was the first 4-bookmark book that I had read in a while. Wow. The emotion Mia Sheridan evoked in Archer’s Voice was just…wow. I resisted reading this book for a while, not wanting to buy into the hype that has been surrounding it. But, the masses were right on this one. Shall we… Six months...

debt, by nina g. jones

In recognition of Valentine’s Day, tara’s take will be celebrating romantic reads for the month of February. So, in a “go big or go home” kind of way–let’s kick off the month with a review of the book Debt, by Nina G. Jones. This falls into the totally twisted category for sooo many reasons. I don’t give disclaimers on too many books, but be forewarned on this one–subject matter content is extremely intense, graphic, and...

the prince, by sylvain reynard

It’s no secret that Sylvain Reynard’s Gabriel Inferno’s series is by far one of my most fave romance stories. Reynard’s style of writing is not only romantic but it has the ability to transport you to places without being verbose. The Prince is a novella that is a spin-off of Reynard’s Gabriel series and a prequel to his Florentine series, which kicks off its first full novel with The Raven, due out on February...
