The Indigo Spell Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“In that moment, it seemed that as long as Adrian and I were together, there was no challenge too great for us.”
So far I think this one was the best in the series.We learn that the Alchemist and the Warriors of Light are working together but it hasn’t been mentioned to what capacity. Obviously the leaders of the Alchemist have been keeping it under wraps which makes Sidney question her alliance. She has given …

Wreck Me Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“When you suffer a loss so tremendous it’s like the sun goes down and never rises again. It sets and leaves you in a perpetual state of twilight.”
This story starts with a tragic car accident that leaves Jo an orphan.  She survives first through foster care but eventually lives on the street. Seven years ago, she enters a bookstore and demands for a job.  She finally has something to live for. The bookstore becomes her whole life. …

Wounded Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Heard alot of good things about this one through other book blogs and reviews so I decided to take a chance. This story was different from my usual in the sense that it involved an unlikely couple from different backgrounds, different cultures and belong on the opposite sides of the war. First we meet Rania, orphaned and left alone by her brother she attempts to find any kind of work for her survival. She searches and roams around looking …

The Education of Sebastian/Caroline Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:

“I want you, Caro. I want to make love to you. I want to make love to you forever.”
Okay so with book 1, Sebastian’s Education. I don’t know about you guys but the beginning made me feel somewhat uncomfortable. I was imagining the powers above letting out a bolt of lighting and getting struck in the middle of my forehead while reading this one. Think Harry Potter! It wasn’t really the age difference ( 13 …

Nets and Lies Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:

“…the past held a darkness that blotted out the sun. But the future…it was so bright.”
I  absolutely loved Katie Ashley’s The Proposition/The Proposal so I thought I would give this one a shot. I was hesitant at first but I went ahead and read it. While the writing was good, the storyline bothered me so much it took me awhile to finally decide how I felt about this story. Reading other reviews, seems like …

Broken and Mending Book Review

It all started with a wedding. A beautiful wedding at the First Baptist Church downtown Charleston, SC…

Liezel’s Thoughts:
 
“I can barely breathe when I’m around you because you take my breath away.”
 

The first book, Broken threw me off a little bit. The paragraph construction and character POV switching was awkward to me but I tend to ignore format when a story is that exceptional. It seems that this was fixed recently but if not I can’t …

Sins and Needles Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“I hate you, Ellie Watt,” he whispered, lips coming closer to mine, “because I still love you after all these years.”
I absolutely loved this book! It had all the great elements, from suspense,  love and romance, obsessed drug lords, a yummy tattooed man, and music.

What made it different was for once the heroine wasn’t your usual typical  “damsel in distress”, “I’m sooooo gorgeous – love me”, “I’m vulnerable- protect me”  type. Ellie’s a strong, independent woman …

Collide Book Review

“I want it all, Emily. I want to spend my nights holding hand with you. I want the all-day texting. I want the laughing and forehead kisses I want the date nights, the movie watching and the breakfast making…”

Liezel’s Thoughts:
 

“….until that fateful afternoon, Gavin Blake had believed that love, at first sight, didn’t exist.”

I agree this was a good start for this series and I will be patiently waiting for the next installment.
I loved Gavin’s …

Find You In The Dark Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“Just know that you are and always will be my world. You found me in the dark and saved me from myself….I will love you forever.”

I for one, remember my teenage years pretty vividly. It was confusing to say the least. Besides the changes happening in my body, the unpredictable hormones, my repeated failed attempts in finding independence from the parents there was also the struggle of fitting in and discovering new relationships.  Can’t even imagine going …
