Reading about Katherine with her wonderful sense of humor and obsessive interest in her boss was very amusing and relaxing for the most part of this book. I liked the way she saw the world and the way the story moved.

This was a very dark book with gritty scenes and shocking events. Don’t let the mention of Fae fool you into thinking it will all be flowers and pretty guys. It’s not.

The beginning was very confusing and hence frustrating for me. I didn’t know what was happening and to whom it was happening. But once I understood the workings … Continue reading

The shove you get when you first start reading this story is powerful and overwhelming, as it pushes you into a world of tragedy, heart-wrenching sadness and hope. It’s impossible to imagine the loneliness after the ultimate loss and the courage as well as determination to keep going. But all of it was implemented into this book; the emotional punches, … Continue reading

First thing that comes to mind when describing this book is how blurbs can be deceiving. While everything said there is true, when reading this story I got to know some very different characters and was faced with surprising plot twists, none of which was emphasized in those few short sentences.

Mark is a man who believes in love. He has felt it … Continue reading

What attracted me first to this book were motorcycles. Immediately I saw wild tattooed men, a bad boy getting the girl and judgmental society proved wrong by the main protagonists.

While all of the above was included in the story, the plot went a bit differently.

It all starts with Marley leaving her sister’s son, Peter, a boy she raised from … Continue reading

Sometimes, what we want and what happens just doesn’t add up. The blurb to request this book intrigued me enough, and the beginning of it actually made me happy, it did. The rest of the story– not so much.

Eden has her whole world crashing around her. First by the declaration of her fiancé of ten years how he wants to be a woman and is in love … Continue reading

Young or old, it does not matter in this story. A connection can be just as perfect despite the age, the background or the current place you occupy in your own life. That is the reason why I love the age difference stories. Usually it’s a collision of two very different worlds. Men are filled with insecurities and oh-so-tentative to take the plunge into their adventure.

To give all readers a fair warning – This review will be very conflicting. You may ask why, but there is no clear answer to that question, other than saying, that my opinions were many and they just loved to clash.

Now to talk about this story, It is a story about Micah, a film student who has issues with his friends but still loves them, cannot … Continue reading
