Review for 'The Interview' by Terri Darling...

The InterviewThe Interview by Terri Darling

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


“Recently-divorced Jannie Golightly is back on the job market for the first time in a decade, brazening out her interviews despite feeling untrained, unprepared, and totally ill-equipped. But her interview today may be her worst ever because she actually cares what this particularly hunky interviewer thinks.

It does not go at all according to plan.”

This book, by Terri Darling, was hilariously funny! Reading this I found myself laughing frequently. I came across this book on in the Top 100 Free, and it looked alright, and I wasn’t disappointed. The book in all, was very short, however, I do not think that it detracted from the storyline. It took me about fifteen minutes maximum to read. The storyline was fast paced and makes you giggle as many things go wrong!

I’d rate this book at a three out of five stars, I was very good, but it left me wanting more!

Review for 'Emergency: Wife Lost and Found' by Carol Marinelli...

Emergency: Wife Lost and Found (Medical Romance)Emergency: Wife Lost and Found by Carol Marinelli

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘Emergency: Wife lost and found’ by Carol Marinelli, in my opinion a very enjoyable read. I came across it on in the Top 100 free and as I enjoy medical dramas with a passion, I thought I’d give it a go!

I actually really enjoyed this book. The story behind it was that an A & E (ER for my American friends!) consultant, James Morrell, is on a round on the Emergency department when a severely injured casualty is rushed into the department suffering extreme injuries. He is taken aback as he instantly recognises the woman – she was his ex-wife, Dr Lorna McClelland! The story moves quickly around to their interactions and how they finally begin to open up to each other. The story following the dreadful car accident was an enjoyable read.

As many previous reviewers I have read say, ‘there was an overuse of exclamation points,’ I have to disagree. I believe that exclamation points are used and needed throughout this story, as much was full of emotion that needed proper portrayal, and how better way than an exclamation point? I think that they are a brilliant was of presenting the characters feeling and emotions, making them well known to the reader throughout.

I would overall give this book a four out of five stars!

Review for 'Betrayed' by Morrigan Michele and Misty Carmony..

Betrayed (Blood and Magick)Betrayed by Morrigan Michele

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book, Betrayed, was a book about a young girl called Alexis, 17 years old, and how she was coming to terms with herself. This was a fun and exciting read, with twists and turns that I did not see coming at all. The plot moved at a quick pace and this kept the story flowing and interesting!

There were secrets being kept from Alexis, by both her Mother and Father, but also by her Guardian. These secrets had kept her in the dark for the whole of her life. This book portrays the troubles and struggles of how she had to deal with the bombardment of information about what she is, and who she is, and where her family fit into her life. Her world is turned upside down, and she is consequently forced to go on the run with her trusty Guardian. Danger, of hunters, loom after her, following her every move until they threaten to strike once and for all. Family is a major theme within this book. It reflects how blood is thicker than water, and that family will always and remain by your side, appearing out of nowhere to protect one another.

The book has a lovely selection of paranormal creatures including, vampires, witches and guardians, and many of you who love this genre would absolutely love to read this book. The story was however quite short, but it did not detract from the storyline or plot for that matter. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I cannot wait to see what is in store for her in the next!

This deserves a massive 5 out of 5 stars!

Review for 'Gastien Part 1: The Cost of the Dream' by Caddy Rowland!...

Gastien Part 1: The Cost of the Dream (The Gastien Series)Gastien Part 1: The Cost of the Dream by Caddy Rowland

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book, by Caddy Rowland was one of the most emotional reads I have ever read. I am not a crier, I never cry, not watching sad movies, reading sad books, I am not a crier. Period. However, while reading this, I had experienced so many different emotions, that I had never thought possible while reading only one book! I was riding one of the most emotional rollercoasters! At times, I would cry as I felt for Gastien, and at other times throughout the story, I would smile and laugh.

The story and plot was exciting, and I was eager to know what was going to happen next, what was going to happen to Gastien! The story flowed very well indeed, the characters were extremely well thought-out and just the amount of detail that was describing everything was amazing!

I absolutely loved every second, even if at some points, my heart was breaking. I am so happy that Caddy Rowland let me review this book, and I am eagerly anticipating the next part! Thank you!

Review for 'A Christmas Miracle' by Danica Winters...

A Christmas MiracleA Christmas Miracle by Danica Winters

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a short read, possibly taking only about ten minutes or so, but it certainly did not detract from the wonderful storyline. From the first word, I knew that I would love it, and it undoubtedly did not disappoint. It is a short, sweet Christmas story, with a learning curve. Christie learns this throughout the progress of the story. Marcus, her dashingly handsome next door neighbour is the one who teaches her a valuable lesson, showing us the reader, that we are to appreciate the smaller things we have in our lives. This short story really placed me into the Christmas mood, as it hasn’t been feeling at all Christmasy! It was a fabulous read, and I would gladly give it a massive 5 out of 5 stars!
