Violent Heart Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
If I were to compare this book to a movie, I would compare it to Kill Bill, one of my all-time favorites. Just like those movies – the Death So Sweet Series was bloody, violent,  and gruesome. Honestly, it is one of the darkest books I’ve read in a very long time. A Death So Sweet Series is a series where you can’t stop until the very end.
What was so compelling about it was …

Covet Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
I have to admit, the second book in the series – Crush, annoyed me. It annoyed me enough not to want to finish the book, let alone the series. There were just too many elements that had me gnashing my teeth—especially the craziness about pitting one brother against the other. But, I do have to say that I am glad that I continued and pushed through because Covet answered all the questions and then some.
Not …

The Wedding Game Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
The Wedding Game had me literally in tears – not the wrong kind but the very, very good kind. My tears weren’t just brought on by the laughing out loud hilarity but how uplifting it made me feel. It was exactly what I needed this lonely Valentine’s Day. What was so amazing about it was uh…. everything!
The heroine Luna Rossi was terrific. Luna is one of those characters you wish was a real person …

Cemetery Boys Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
If you asked what was the best thing that I loved most about this book, I wouldn’t be able to pinpoint one specific element. The first thing that caught my attention was the main character – Yadriel. His strength is unparalleled. I am not talking about physical strength rather the strength in his character, in his personality.
To come out to his family as being trans is a challenge all on its own but to …

Chain of Gold Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
I have yet to read most of Cassandra Clare’s books but after finishing this story, my love for  YA fiction is completely renewed. I  am now determined to read the entire series from beginning to end.
I do have to admit, it was difficult for me to fully commit to reading this book. Introducing so many different characters is difficult for me but as the story flows I understood why this was necessary. I learned …

The Cabin Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
They said at the end that this story that they wrote was “heavy at times”… for me, that was an understatement. It was heavy from beginning to end. I’m a widow… the main characters of the book are both widows. Need I say more?
What I loved so much about this book was how the writers poured so much emotion into this story. I felt their loss, their despair, the emptiness… it all felt genuine. …

Headlines Book Review

Thoughts:
I am a mood reader – so, I guess I wasn’t in the mood for this book? It was disappointing, really. I know you are going to ask me… Did I even read the first 2 books in the series? Yes, I did, and I immensely enjoyed them, thank you very much.
What was disappointing was I expected so much more. Instead, what I got was a long drawn out whining session from a supporting character. I …

Wicked Hour Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
The Chicagoland Vampires series is definitely one of the best paranormal series to date, BUT … man, after reading the Heirs of Chicagoland, it has fast become my favorite. Come on, what is there not to like when you combine a vampire with that of a shifter’s world?
The characters – Elisa Sullivan and Connor Keene, are what make this series. What is so amazing about Elisa Sullivan is despite how influential her parents are, …

Where the Truth Lives Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Just like what I did with Where the Blame Lies, I walked in completely blind. I didn’t read the synopsis or didn’t even take a glimpse at any of the reviews. I wanted the element of surprise and boy did I get one!
Again, it was Mia Sheridan’s characters that grabbed me from the very beginning. The heroine Liza had such a heartbreaking past but despite that, she demonstrated so much grace and possessed so …

Enemies Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
I always thought “enemies” was such a harsh word, especially in romance. This is what made me want to read the book even more. I wanted to know what was it that made the heroine Dusty hate Stone (h).
When I finally discover the reason – it was shocking. For someone so young to go through so much pain… I couldn’t help but empathize with Dusty. How Tijan described her pain felt so real.  As I …
