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 …

Beauty from Pain Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
♪ ♫ ♪ ♫ ♫  ♪ ♫
“Nothing speaks louder than your heart. Listen to what it’s telling you.”
“I’ve been wanting to devour this mouth since the first time I saw you.”
I tell you, the sexy, alpha-male, millionaire bachelor looking for -female- companionship just keeps on getting better and better. This one really blew me away. I loved everything about it! I loved how music from  various genres was so involved in making this story just perfect. And …

Skin Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Oh goodness, this book was exactly like I thought it would be. It answered all the lingering questions I had, which I posted on my review for FLESH.
This one straddles the Stockholm syndrome boundaries. But in a good way… but I guess that’s a matter of opinion. Haha!  Just have to continually remind yourself that this story was set in a post-apocalytic world were normal rules don’t apply. Nick handcuffed and chained her but he did it mostly …

Take This Regret/ Lost To You Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“This is the only place I want to be, Elizabeth…with you.”
The way the writer described every emotion, every detail  was simply exquisite . I couldn’t help putting myself in Christian’s shoes in Lost To You. The internal struggle in admitting what he truly felt for Elizabeth was remarkable.
In Take This Regret, I fell more into Elizabeth. The pain she felt when Christian made her choose was heartbreaking.  I couldn’t believe how much she had to go through for …

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 …

Flesh Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Every now and then the typical boy meets girl gets a tad boring. This one was like a breath of fresh air to me, a break in the monotony. Who would have even thought of writing a post apocalyptic romance and it being THIS great.
“Ali woke up coming. The dream of hands and mouth were real, the soft brush of hair and the scratch of stubble against her inner thoughts not even vaguely imagined.”
Being …

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 …
