Wohoo! I can’t contain my excitement and yet I’m nervous to start this book. I can feel that it’s the beginning of new life for Mason and Sam and Logan and the rest of the casts. But sadly, for us readers, it’s the end. We all anticipated this book and now that it’s finally here, it’s really an overwhelming feeling for me. I can’t tell you how much I love and hate this feeling right now. I’m on the edge of something and I can’t figure it out exactly. I’m having mixed emotions right now and I am planning to read this book real nice and sloooooow… I just don’t want it to end…yet.

Beautiful Cover Reveal: Fallen Crest Forever (My all time favorite series!!!) by Tijan

THIS IS IT! The FINAL BOOK in the Fallen Crest Series! I’m not sure about how I truly feel right now. I guess I can call it BITTERSWEET. It hasn’t been released yet but it feels like it is the end already. It is the last book, yet it also feels like it should only be the beginning. 
I want more badly. I don’t think I can ever truly recover from this series. I loved all the books and I can’t wait for this one! Look at the gorgeous cover! I love the title as well! There won’t be a better title than this. 
I am excited yet nervous to dive into this novel, but like the previous books, I know that Tijan will never let me down. There’s a reason why she’s a favorite of mine. NO matter what happens in the book, she always bring us home.

PAPERBACK

Excerpt

I had no time to stop and think.
I had to fight.
I had to hurt.
I had to protect.
Feeling someone behind me, I let loose with the bat, a scream erupting from my throat. Someone caught the bat and wrapped an arm around my waist. I tried kicking out. He dodged my feet and said hurriedly in my ear, “Damn, Strattan. It’s me, Channing. Stop!”
Channing.
He was friendly.
Stop.
I sagged in his arms, looking for Mason. Where was he? He was circling a guy, still fighting.
I started forward, but Channing caught my arm. “Whoa. Chill.”
I growled as I yanked my hand free and started forward again, but Channing grabbed my arm once more.
He got in front of me, holding his other hand up. “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Look. He’s fine. We’re here. He’s got that. Look. Look, Sam.”
My senses began to calm. The black around my eyesight faded. I could see more normally, and the buzzing in my ears subsided. I gulped for breath, tasting salt and dust in my mouth.
Channing was right. Mason’s eyes were deadly, but alert, his mouth set in a flat line. His shoulders were tense, but he looked in control.

Blurb:

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him. But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

Review: Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

Losing Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #2)Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I expect that you already read Finding Kyler by now, if not, I suggest you read it first before diving into this one. This is the second book in The Kennedy Boys series. Finding Kyler left us a huge cliffhanger ending and Losing Kyler picked up exactly where Finding Kyler left off.

I don’t have any negative opinion about this book because I enjoyed it so much and it felt like I didn’t even waited for this sequel at all. As I’ve said, Losing Kyler immediately picked up where the first book ended and the emotional connection was instant. I remembered how I loved the first book! I couldn’t even choose which one I liked better because they were equally satisfying, both are equally addicting.

When Faye moved in with the Kennedys, she was quickly thrown into the family drama. The word “dysfunctional” is an understatement when it comes to this family. The Kennedy seems to be living in full, fat lies and after the revelations in this book, there’s no doubt that things will be more interesting in the next installment.

Faye is a strong girl and I liked her for being badass. She didn’t only fight her demons but she also do everything to protect the people she love. If only loving someone is easy. If only loving Kyler isn’t forbidden.

What I enjoyed mostly about this book is its ability to turn the story into something you didn’t expect. There were lots of twists and bombs along the way. There were plenty of complications, unforgivingly thrown, one after another. It was like the family is cursed and happily ever after isn’t a possibility. Just when you think you’d figured out something, you’ll be given another secret to unfold, another twist in the already twisted lives of the characters. The angst we loved in the first book is still there. The thrill of waiting and finding out whether your favorite characters will have a happy story or not was both exciting and  agitating. There was no boring part for me and I think that was another reason why other readers loved this book too. It was sexy, angsty, twisted and sometimes overwhelming. There were a lot of things that happened in this one sequel alone and I bet there’s more coming in the next one.

Then there was Brad. Maybe seven good looking Kennedy brothers wasn’t enough so Siobhan added Brad into the limelight. I have to admit that giving Brad a lot of exposure made this book even more exciting to read. It was nice to have a decent guy thrown into the picture and knowing Brad will make you love his character. He’s a gentleman. The one that is easily taken for granted. You’ll love him.

Just like Finding Kyler, the ending of this book was another huge cliffhanger! I survived but Keeping Kyler couldn’t get here fast enough and I badly need the happily ever after!

If you loved The Royals and Fallen Crest and looking for another dose of family drama with hot dudes and badass female heroine, try this series and keep up with The Kennedys!

Release Day Blitz: Mack Daddy by Penelope Ward

MACK DADDY

(A standalone)

Release date: 2/13/2017

A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times, USA Today and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Penelope Ward

pwmackdaddybookcover5x8_bw_high-fixed

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance.

They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right?

So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen.

At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.

Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy.

I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more.

They didn’t know about our past.

He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business.

As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case.

I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart.

Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down.

And soon I might be breaking all the rules.

Author’s note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

Review: Mists of the Serengeti by Leylah Attar

Mists of the Serengeti by Leylah Attar
Published: January 31, 2017

Synopsis:

Once in Africa, I kissed a king…

“And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in a corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale for fear it would slip out, never to be found again.”

“And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in a corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale for fear it would slip out, never to be found again.”

Jack Warden, a divorced coffee farmer in Tanzania, loses his only daughter. An ocean away, in the English countryside, Rodel Emerson loses her only sibling.

Two ordinary people, bound by a tragic afternoon, set out to achieve the extraordinary, as they make three stops to rescue three children across the vast plains of the Serengeti—children who are worth more dead than alive.

But even if they beat the odds, another challenge looms at the end of the line. Can they survive yet another loss—this time of a love that’s bound to slip through their fingers, like the mists that dissipate in the light of the sun?

“Sometimes you come across a rainbow story—one that spans your heart. You might not be able to grasp it or hold on to it, but you can never be sorry for the color and magic it brought.”

A blend of romance and women’s fiction, Mists of The Serengeti is inspired by true events and contains emotional triggers, including the death of a child. Not recommended for sensitive readers. Standalone, contemporary fiction.


I finished one of the best books I’ve ever read. Definitely a favorite of mine and my top 2017 read so far. So many emotions all at once. How it managed to make me feel everything I wanted to feel from a book was astonishing. It was heartbreaking, heart-pounding, sad and emotional, yet beautiful, fascinating, romantic and magical. It felt raw and real and the words go deep into your heart that you won’t have a choice but to endure the pain of the characters as you remember your own. For me, it was a thrilling and heartfelt journey where fear, pain, hope and love were my companions. This book was astounding! I am in-love with this book!

If you have a heart, read it. If you think you don’t have one, then read it. If you like romantic story, read this book. If you don’t believe in love, please read this book. If you want to feel something or anything, please read this book! I can’t recommend it enough. I think this book has something for every one of us. It will make your heart break into a thousand pieces and then it will mend your heart with a permanent ache and I don’t think you’ll be the same again. It was inspiring, uplifting, and it will move you. We may not like the same book, but in this case, I’m 99 percent sure that you won’t get disappointed.

If you would ask me where my heart is right now, I would say it’s in Africa with Jack and Rodel and with the other beautiful souls I met along the roads of East Africa.

Beautiful. I am astounded.

5 STARS!

“WHERE DO STORIES come from? How do they form and flow and find their way into our world?” -Leylah Attar

For me it’s kind of magical– how the stories touch lives including mine. Something you just have to believe even when you don’t fully understand. What’s important is how these stories made you “feel”.
