The Over Duet – Review

The”Over Duet” which consists of Low over High and Ever over After was sitting on my kindle for what it seems like forever. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to pick those books up  because I really enjoyed them.

IMG_0050editedLow Over High begins with an angsty, mysterious, yet powerful prologue of the main character Marlo Rivers (a part of the prologue is also the blurb of the novel). She talks about her cynical personality and her non-belief in hope and faith in humankind because those are only cliches “to keep the dreamers dreaming.” Marlo was not always like that, circumstances in her past made her that way. She tried to run from it for the last eight years but the past has a way of catching up and for Marlo it is in form of a crumpled note left on her porch. Continue reading “The Over Duet – Review”

Excess Baggage – Review

IMG_9873editedBack in March, when it was still cold and depressing outside, I got an ARC sign-up form from Laura Barnard who was going to release her new book, Excess Baggage, in May. The novel promised to be full of sunshine, summer and old feelings – the perfect getaway from this weather. Now it is May and the weather over here in Germany still hasn’t improved since March. So what was better than turning on your ebook reader and seeing the ARC loading? I couldn’t wait to start with this second chance novel under the sun of Luna Island.

Erica Bennett and her friends are on vacation to have a few days to themselves and away from the hectic and stressful life at home. Erica doesn’t expect to stumble upon Jack Lawson – her first holiday romance back when she was fifteen. It is not long until sparks fly and Erica and Jack rekindle their old feelings. But what happens after their vacation is over? Is their chance meeting a second shot at something real or will this stay another holiday romance? Continue reading “Excess Baggage – Review”

Revelry – Review

IMG_9835editedEveryone was raving about Kandi Steiner‘s new release, even before it was even available for purchase. So of course I had to buy Revelry and read it too.

Wren Ballard is a successful Seattle based fashion designer. Her love life, however, is anything but successful: she is 27 and freshly divorced. To free her mind of the past few months, she decides to spend the summer in the mountains just outside of Seattle. Wren finds the perfect place to stay and the people in town make her feel welcome immediately. Well, not all of them. Her broody and good-looking neighbor seems not to care about Wren at all. But Anderson Black does not only care about her, he doesn’t really care about anyone in town. He is lost and has his own demons to fight, this is why he can’t deal with someone else’s problems on top of his. But this all changes when he comes face to face with Wren. Sometimes you need to get lost in order to find yourself. Continue reading “Revelry – Review”

Who Needs Air – Review

IMG_9781editedHow often have you read a book that made you genuinely happy? And I don’t mean a re-read of your favorite book, because, well, it is obvious that it makes you happy. I mean a new book. One that you were a little skeptic about at first because the blurb sounded too good to be true. A new book with a great plot, a little drama and the perfect ending. I’ve read a bunch of books so far this year, but only a few made me feel this way, and, minor issues aside, Who Needs Air was one of them.

Campbell Potter has good reason to be stressed: on top of organizing a big project for work, she has to deal with her ex-boyfriend August who only arrived back in town a few days ago. But not any ex-boyfriend, no: The love of her life, to be exact. THE love of her life who walked out on her five years ago. THE love of her life who wrote a book about their love story, published it and became a bestselling author. Now he is back in their hometown to overseeing the filming of  his bestseller as it is turned into a movie. But Cam made a promise to herself: the day August left five years ago was the ending of their story. There is no chance of a sequel. But August has different plans because he already started writing the conclusion to their epic love story. Continue reading “Who Needs Air – Review”

Edge of Brotherhood – Shared Review

The “Love on the Edge” series by Molly E. Lee is full of adventure, thrill and lots of adrenaline. Molly took us storm chasing twice in Oklahoma, treasure hunting in Israel and deep sea diving in the Bahamas. This time, she takes us on an even bigger adventure: we are about to discover the Amazon rainforest. And not only Easton will be there. Dash, Connell and the girls are on board too! Yes! You read correctly! All the guys in one novel! How cool is that? But it gets even better: Molly introduces us to a new man on the edge. Wade is a stuntman and this adventure will be his and the guys’ biggest yet.

Easton is certain that he found the lost city of Paititi in the Amazon rainforest. The production company of his TV show takes this as an opportunity to air a special series of the discovery. For the next leg of his expedition, Easton now needs experienced and skilled crew members to help him uncover the treasures hidden in the half submerged temple. For that, the production company hired storm chaser Dash, deep sea diver Connell and stuntman Wade. All four men need to work together and combine their individual skills in order to survive in the jungle. But this is easier said than done since the jungle has its own rules of survival. But is the Amazon jungle really their biggest threat on this mission? Continue reading “Edge of Brotherhood – Shared Review”

Saving Tatum – Review

Tatum CoverAs I mentioned in my previous review, Tempting Rowan and Saving Tatum are my favorite books in the “Trace + Olivia” series by Micalea Smeltzer. Although completely different regarding the plot, they still have some similarities. As the other books in this series, I read Saving Tatum about 2 years ago but I didn’t know how much I missed both Jude and Tatum until I picked up the book again.
Tatum and Jude have a past – but not the one you’re thinking of. Jude is the reason for Tatum’s sadness and her reservation toward people. He is also the reason her parents don’t care for her anymore. So why would she give him the time of day when he clearly ruined her life? She is determined to stay away from Jude and his advances at all costs. But Jude has other plans. He wants to get to the bottom of her hatred toward him and wants to make her like him and see the real Jude. Continue reading “Saving Tatum – Review”
