Sea of Dreams by Kathryn Le Veque

Sea of Dreams by Kathryn Le Veque

This book had such potential and the first 30% was a 5 star read. What could have been a great book, was filled with one too many melodramatic moments. Less would have been better. There was enough to go on just dealing with the love story between Beck and Blakesley, his job as a S.E.A.L commander, and the effect it had on him and his family. The relationship between Beck and Blakesley heated up at warped speed, yet it felt right! The author wrote a tender, passionate, intimate scene that had me squirming and misting. Then for the rest of the book, when it came to the loving, it just faded […]

Blackfoot Affair by Doreen Owens Malek

Blackfoot Affair by Doreen Owens Malek

I was pleasantly surprised by this freebie! I will admit the cover is what lured me to read it, but once inside the book, the story captivated me. It had an interesting plot, some intriguing characters including one Jackson Bluewolf, a Native American and adviser on a case where the government is trying to stake claim to an Indian burial ground. Hired to represent the opposing side is Marisa Hancock, an attorney from Maine, who is conflicted on her feelings about the case and Jackson. Although they are pitted against one another in the courtroom, the sparks fly when they cannot deny their attraction and pursue a relationship. Jackson could be […]

I’ll Be Your Drill, Soldier by Crystal Rose

I’ll Be Your Drill, Soldier by Crystal Rose

I loved the storyline; the ideas and world the author created, adored the men, these wonderful brothers in arms, and took all the lessons learned to heart. So, why only 4 stars? At times the writing was basic at best. It didn’t flow as well as it could have, the writing seemed a bit choppy. The constant use of the phrases, “smaller/larger man”, “older/younger” man, “other man”, made the scenes where they were used to describe the characters, feel very impersonal. I’m not one for flowery prose or overly descriptive writing, but had the author embellished a little more, stayed with the point at hand, injected some more mature dialogue, polished […]
