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 …

Grounded Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“I fell in love with your eyes first because I looked into their depths and saw the other half of my soul.”

I thought the whole series was fantastic. The storyline is basically the same as Fifty Shades and somewhat the Crossfire Series. To summarize… billionaire, alpha male looking for woman to marry and share their wealth with. I thought this series was better than the other two and I will tell you why. First off it was …

Poughkeepsie Book Review

“Imagine you were walking in a desert, and you were so hot and very thirsty. The sun won’t quit, but you finally come upon the clearest, coolest pond. You jump in, even in your best clothes. You jump in and drink because you absolutely have to. You have to. Am I making any sense…?”

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“Every time I think I couldn’t love you a bit more, you stretch my heart again.”
There were so many elements in this …

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 …

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 …
