Flashback Friday: What I Didn’t Say by Keary Taylor

Flashback Friday: What I Didn’t Say by Keary Taylor

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars! Tragic, yet wonderful! Some of these YA books have such an emotional impact, and in this case, it has to do with the fact that it’s told from Jake’s point-of-view. So, as he’s experiencing these life changing events, you feel them right along with him. You are not an outsider looking in, you become Jake! It was downright overwhelming, bowled me over. Jake has liked Samantha since his freshman year, but the two of them have only flirted and skirted around their attraction for one another, but never acted upon it. However, he notices at the start of their senior year that she has become somewhat distant. […]

Flashback Friday: Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

Flashback Friday: Chill Factor by Sandra Brown

Dorsey’s Review  5 Chilling Stars!! Sandra Brown is one of my top “go-to” authors  when I’m in the mood for a great mystery suspense that will keep me guessing and on the edge of my seat. She also manages to add just the right amount of romance to keep the characters connected and the reader enthralled. In the town of Cleary, North Carolina, four women are missing and presumed dead. The town has a serial killer (The Blue Ribbon Killer) on the loose and as the story unfolds, and as usual with a Sandra Brown novel, there are several suspects and a couple of side stories with many twists and turns. Lilly […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Flashback Friday Favorite: Kiss a Falling Star by Barbara Elsborg

Reviews Splage says: 5 Stars! This is the second book I’ve read by Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me. I love that she can write knock-your-socks-off erotica with a meaty story and characters you fall in love with. Caspar is the brooding hero that the whole town hates. He is the son of an Earl, has zero money, zero potential to get a job because of a past tragedy that the town holds him responsible for and he can’t forgive himself for the incident either. He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries to do things to make people hate him even more. But, he’s the […]
