Framed for Murder by Mary Alford

Framed for Murder by Mary Alford is part of the Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense series.  It is the first Christian romance book I have ever read, and I am hooked!

Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman

Wow. Just wow. I ran across a quote from the book "Here on Earth" by Alice Hoffman on one of my favorite blogs, Everyday Strange, and it piqued my curiosity enough to fork over some dough for a read slightly different than my go-to. It was so worth every penny. "Here on Earth" by Alice Hoffman… Continue reading Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman

“We’re not going to fall. We’re going to soar.”

Congratulations to the Eagles on their win last night, felling our Vikes and soaring to the Super Bowl. Though I can't say I was rooting for the Eagles last night, I just may in a couple weeks.  IF they quit trying to steal our chant that is. I mean, honestly, the chant is all we've… Continue reading “We’re not going to fall. We’re going to soar.”

It’s not the lie that’s the problem:

I think we can all agree that lies create deep gorges between two people, gorges that take extraordinarily purposeful effort to heal.  I think the quote above is meant to define the space lies create in relationships, but I think it can also be stretched to mean the space lies create within ourselves. I was… Continue reading It’s not the lie that’s the problem:

Chains of Life by Shandi Boyes, Perceptions series

I was looking for one last pleasure read before school started back up, and after reading Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews' review of "Chains," I thought this might be a good read. What I disliked: Though the review mentions small BDSM, basically the entire book from cover to cover is about entering the BDSM world.  The… Continue reading Chains of Life by Shandi Boyes, Perceptions series

Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bastard series

Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren is the first in a long series I won' t be reading.  I stayed away because the title was so crass, and I maybe should have stayed away. What I disliked: I was hoping for billionaire type romance, but there was zero romance in this for me.  He was all… Continue reading Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren, Beautiful Bastard series

Breaking Him by R.K. Lilley, Love is War series

Breaking Him by R.K. Lilley is a good read.  It is proof that love can overcome even the most hurt and stubborn among us.  Though I didn't finish the book, I would recommend it to those that like strong female leads and soft spoken but strong male leads. What I disliked: It was a little… Continue reading Breaking Him by R.K. Lilley, Love is War series

Every Night by Lexy Timms, The Brush of Love series 1

I tried this one. I couldn't do it folks. I skipped at least part of just about every page for 16 chapters and gave up 68% of the way through. What I disliked: Everything. Maybe if I was ten years younger, still had teenage angst and hated my parents I could have liked it. Maybe… Continue reading Every Night by Lexy Timms, The Brush of Love series 1
