Captivating, moving and surprising, this book is a great read
Review by lacrimsonfemme Feb 21, 2018
This story kicks off a new series from the talented Ms. Brooks. I am hooked on her stories and I can not wait to read the next book in this series. Quite frankly, she is an auto-read author for me now. I will pick up the book without reading her book blurb. I enjoyed going into this story cold. I wasn't sure what to expect. From the first page, the story pulled me in. As the story unfolds, the reader learns more about this McKay family. I'm in love with this family created from the heart. … Read More

Romances not my thing, but I loved this book!
Review by Paul L Arvidson Feb 21, 2018
Romances are not normally my thing. I a bit more of a rayguns and robots kinda guy, but I loved this book. I guess it touched something in me, I used to be a theatre technician. It’s the height of the 80’s: AIDS, Regan, The Berlin Wall. Fading Ballerina Peri changes partners and the new one, the young Mark, is full of surprises. Erin Bomboy draws a beautiful and believable ballet world (though for me it could use a Glossary for some of the ballet terms, I like a good glossary!) I think because … Read More

A Charming Story about a Simpler Time
Review by jeepwonder Feb 14, 2018
In todays busy world, it's easy to idealize yesteryear, and more specifically that time in small towns. The author took a trip backwards 75-80 years and portrayed life in small town America. From the upper and lower societies having separate neighborhoods to the values that each had. Life wasn't portrayed as perfect, but is was obviously simpler. Once the reader understood that, then the slower pace and the lack of explosive action was fine. It's not a thriller, but instead a charming glimpse … Read More

Masterful Suspense on so many levels
Review by jeepwonder Feb 10, 2018
The author spun a charming romance into something so much more. With subplots and the skillful use of minor characters life in a small town was realistic, even when strange things started happening. The plot was well paced, never leaving me waiting for the next shoe to drop. The characters developed and matured as the story unfolded. I was glad that no stereotypes shackled the author in the telling, good people had flaws. That doesn't happen in all stories, but it tugged at my heart strings … Read More

Enjoyable
Review by Hot Choco and Books Feb 8, 2018
TAME THE BEAST is an enjoyable college romance with all the drama and identity searching. Adam is a typical hero--rich, privileged, spoiled, a manwhore. Although I have to say that he became the latter due to something in his past, so maybe he has a valid reason than most heroes. I feel for him; he shouldn't have had to experience that. Some people use tragedies/disappointments as stepping stones to growing up, however, Adam turned to drinking, whoring and generally becoming a disappointment … Read More

Operation: Chance
Review by Heartracer Feb 8, 2018
Reading a long book can sometimes be frustrating and leaving the reader bored. I hate reading books like that because it feels as if the story is dragging on the way past its limits. This book, however, changed my mind! The book starts out with a father of three girls, deceased wife Gracie due to cancer. The girls are the only thing that keeps Emmit McKay sane these days. He sold the home that he lived with his wife until she passed away and moved back into his childhood home. Casey is 10 yrs … Read More

Melt The Slopes
Review by Heartracer Feb 2, 2018
This story has the capacity to melt the ice from any mountain. Which is exactly where this book takes place, Emerald Mountain. Max is the Ski Patrol Director and is in charge of the avalanche (avy) and in his crew that he is drooling over Sophie Tremore. Sure, they had a past 2yrs ago for 8 weeks, but that was all in the past. Sophie is strictly "off limits" from upper management and Sophie is still fuming that he never called her back. She went on with her life and gained all the knowledge … Read More

Brilliant storytelling
Review by leslieo Jan 21, 2018
I’m quite sure that when I grow up, I want to be a cat burglar. Okay, so, while yes, m a y b e a reality check IS in order, Cailin Briste makes it downright interesting AND hot in IT TAKES A CAT BURGLAR. So, so many likes: The details are brilliant. Everything from Darcelle’s training, to her trainers, to Sebastian are so wonderfully laid out that you’ll feel as though you’re a fly on the wall watching everything happen. You’ll grin repeatedly as you delve into their inner thoughts. … Read More

A perfect college romance, with all the fuss, drama and love
Review by lillysbookworld Jan 26, 2018
A perfect college romance, with all the fuss, drama and love. I liked this book quite a lot, even if the title was a little misleading. I was expecting a high dose of craziness and misbehaving, but that was not the case. Regardless of my expectations, it is still a very enjoyable book. Clara is your normal geek, who wants to experience life outside books and grades once in a while. So she is off to college. She wants to find balance between hanging out with friends and still maintaining good … Read More
