FISHER’S LIGHT by TARA SIVEC

Fisher's Light by Tara Sivec

SYNOPSIS

Fisher,
I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.

Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.
Lucy

To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.

“You’re my light, Lucy. You are always the light in my darkness..”

The prologue and first chapter of Fisher’s Light was indeed haunting and sad. Catching a glimpse inside the very troubled and confused mind of Jefferson Fisher was heartbreaking, causing us to well up and reach for the tissues in readiness for the sob fest we expected to follow as we delved into Lucy and Fisher’s story of love, pain, loss and second chances.

‘I remember every moment I’ve kissed this man.’

We meet Lucy and Fisher,  two people, desperately in love who have lost their way and lost themselves in the process who try to find their way back to one another and are taken through past/present switches. By telling the story in alternative pov’s we were afforded the opportunity to hear both Lucy and Fisher’s account of the events that led to the dissolution of their marriage, telling of the pain and heartache they both felt and of the love they shared.

“You make everything perfect, Lucy. You’re my light and my life and all I need is your love to guide me home, not matter where I go.”

There were moments in Fisher’s Light that were pure emotion where we experienced the heartache this couple endured. Through Fishers words we understood his despair and self-hatred, through Lucy’s voice we gleamed an understanding of the confusion and pain she was experiencing.

“Sometimes there are important things to fight for right here at home.”

Notice how we said ‘we understood’ and not ‘we felt‘ their emotions. This is because, despite how beautiful and wonderfully written this story was, we didn’t quite experience the gut wrenching emotion we had anticipated in Fisher’s Light.

After discussing our feelings, we came to the conclusion this could be a case of reader preference.  We are both very much ‘show us, don’t tell us’ readers and have that desperate need to live in the moment with the characters. We need to walk in their shoes, and become a part of their story. This enables us to feel their heartbreak and their joy firsthand.

In the case of Fisher’s Light, despite there being some truly beautiful and heartfelt moments throughout, there were times we felt as though we were spectators in their story rather than participants. We wanted to be present in some of the most pivotal moments that transpired rather than read about them. To connect to them, we had to live them and at times it felt we were being told  ‘this happened or that happened’.  In the latter part of the book there were a couple of drama points added to the story that felt unwarranted, a bit silly and not befitting the overall emotional and touching tone of the story.

Tara Sivec is a without doubt a wonderfully versatile and extremely talented author and we did enjoy Fisher’s Light.  There were certainly some memorable moments we loved . Tara would elicit such strong conflicting thoughts between alternating pov’s which she executed beautifully.  Upon hearing Lucy’s account of events, we would become enraged at Fisher for his treatment of her, only to switch to utmost compassion for Fisher upon hearing his account.

“We took vows – for better or for worse. Why did you think that I couldn’t handle the worse? Or that I wouldn’t want to?”

How do you find your way back to the one you love, the one who owns your heart? Well, Lucy and Fishers story is one that’s told with love. We really did enjoy this story for the most part but found it didn’t deliver the gut wrenching emotional pull we had anticipated.  Readers will take Fisher and Lucy’s story to their hearts. You’ll find yourselves cheering for this couple and hoping they find the happiness they so rightly deserve, just as we did.

THE VIRGIN : THE ORIGINAL SINNERS – THE WHITE YEARS #3 by TIFFANY REISZ

The Virgin

SYNOPSIS

The controversial story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners.

For years, Kingsley Edge warned Eleanor the day would come when she, the mistress of a well-respected Catholic priest, would have to run and hide. She always imagined if that day came she’d be running away with Søren. But instead, she’s running from him.

Knowing Søren and Kingsley will their use their influence to bring her back, Eleanor alone, penniless and scared takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow: the abbey where her mother has taken orders. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure

She cannot, however, hide from her true nature. When Eleanor befriends a young virginal nun, she faces a startling sexual awakening. But Eleanor can’t stay forever, and the lure of her real life beckons beyond the locked gates. But to follow her fate means to leave Kyrie behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make

The lure of the forbidden. The temptation to sin. The price of passion has never been higher, and Eleanor will have to pay it if she ever wants to go home again.

✯✯✯✯✯ Stars

“A person’s heart is a maze. When you’re in the maze, you can’t see your way to the center of it. Only if you’re above the maze can you look down and really see what’s happening.”

Tiffany Reisz never fails to embrace me and involve every single one of my senses and emotions. The pedestal upon which she stands is so high in my eyes that I can never envision that not being the case. She has a magic touch and an unrivalled way with words that astounds and leaves an instant lasting impression. This series through The Original Sinners and The White Years have captivated and induced so many tears – an insistent racing pulse and so much laughter that thinking about it makes me want to experience it all over again, if I could. Now, I eagerly await The Queen!

“I used to think you walked on water,” Kingsley said, meeting Søren’s eyes. “Now I know you’re drowning like the rest of us.”

The Virgin begins and ends on the night before a wedding. But, just whose wedding is it? I have to say that although highly intrigued I was soon caught up in a night of heartfelt reminiscing in the company of Nora, Kingsley and Søren. The details of ‘the missing year’ coming into light out of a harrowing darkness.

“You can look at someone and think you know everything about them…but you don’t. We all have masks on. Or veils.”

As is always the case, it was told with a fervent intensity that had me reaching for tissues one moment – laughing through tears the next. It was equally devastating as it was hopeful and life changing for the formidable three – Nora, Kingsley and Søren. The intricacies of the push and pull; the intense heights of wants and needs. The astounding depth and growth. It was all perfectly flawless in typical Tiffany Reisz fashion.

“Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself.“  – Søren

I devoured The Virgin as expected … HA! And the eroticism was as per usual timed to perfection and written in such a vivid and powerfully poignant way, I found myself very hot under the collar, pun intended.

“She’s mine,” Søren said. “Nothing else matters but that. She is mine. The end.”

Nora and Kingsley respectively tell of two very honest and haunting memories on this important night and I inhaled every word as Tiffany Reisz made me a part of these reflections. I was there with them. I have to say that Kingsley’s year had me on my knees at times – this cocky arrogant King let me see a side of him I’ll always treasure. If at all possible; I fell even more in love with this formidable Frenchman.

That’s not to say Nora’s wasn’t wholeheartedly sincere and heart-rending also. However, I do feel hers was overall more of an internal journey of self-reflection and discovery. She found a part of herself that’d been lying dormant whilst healing old wounds. Her year was mind-blowing at times.

“Are you mine?” he asked her.

“I am yours. Forever.”

And she was hers. But she was his too, and she always would be.

The Virgin is another breathtaking book from an incredibly talented Author. The way the lives and inner most thoughts; love – romance and kink is tied together so intricately through the beating of three incredibly special hearts is overwhelmingly addictive. Possessive obsessiveness sprinkled with erotica, humour, and the fundamentals of religion written with intelligence and sarcastic wit and such depth. There’s nothing else remotely like it out there and I URGE readers to start at the beginning and pick up Tiffany Reisz. I can wax lyrical till the cows come home!

“If you saw the crowd I used to run with…let’s just say we put the original in original sin.”

COMMAND – BONDS BOOK #3 by SIERRA CARTWRIGHT

Command

SYNOPSIS

With all she has to offer, she’s his to command…

Aria DeWitt is a runaway bride. Only months away from her wedding, she panicked, returning her engagement ring and donating her gorgeous gown to charity.

She’s less than pleased when she’s reassigned to a new work project and sent to work with Grant Kingston in the middle of nowhere. She knows of his reputation as a recluse and genius, but she isn’t prepared for how handsome, powerful and deliciously Dominant he is, or how he ignites something inside her that no man ever has.

Grant isn’t happy when his cherished solitude and creativity is shattered by Aria’s unwanted and unwelcome arrival. That is until he glimpses her carefully concealed vulnerability. Aria’s confidence and responsiveness intrigue him, ensnaring him in a way he’d never believed possible, chipping away the ice that shrouds his heart.

As he interacts with her, he realizes why she ran from marriage. She’s never met someone strong and complex enough to hold her interest. And suddenly, he’s determined to be that man.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal sex. 

Command (1)

Reviewed by Gitte

✯✯✯✯ Stars

There’s something so thrilling and exciting about Sierra Cartwright’s writing. It’s incredibly clever, humorous and passionate. She makes geeky sexy which I love. Although it’s quite insta romance it doesn’t feel overly forced or contrived. Rather; it comes across quite convincing and powerful as the story goes on – though I did somewhat struggle with the timespan of certain scenarios.

“I needed to be sure I could let go of the past.”

The banter and interaction is so inquisitive, all-encompassing and natural you feel it building with every word and you feel part of a new discovery and romance. The scenery and imagination is quite breath-taking. Four friends who individually are sexy, successful passionate dominants. Each, so far, has a story which is told brilliantly and Grant & Aria’s is no different.

“You’re coloring outside my lines again.”

“That’s what I want,” he told her. “And it’s what you want, as well.”

“I’m going to make you yearn for me, Aria. For me and only me.”

Aria is a woman in control of her life and comes across quite single-minded and focused. She has a path and she dictates the route. There’s no cross roads, sharp corners or bends as far as she’s concerned though life did recently take a change of course which unsettled her somewhat and has caused a subconscious limbo.

“You chew through weak men as if they’re candy, then you complain when you get a toothache.”

Grant could almost be considered a workaholic recluse. This man is loneliness personified due to a broken relationship that hurt him deep. He’s heading for a burnout in his spectacular mountain retreat. A home that provides him with a lifestyle where he doesn’t get much human interaction. Enter Aria and his life suddenly has colour again and his very being wakes up.

In other words – Julien happens, my Julien I hasten to add because this man STILL has my heart. He is like a constant force in every book so far, the master puppeteer who seems quite lost himself but overcompensating with his brilliant mind, his dead pan sarcastic humour and his love and protection of those he holds dear. Sigh….where was I? Yes, so Julien works his astute ‘magic’ and as always acts out concern, love and respect.

Each book in this series can be read as standalone; however I’d recommend reading this series in the order suggested to get to know all the characters, experience the hot passion and follow the charming gorgeous genius – Julien. I can’t even describe how much I love this man!

“You’re pushing a nut up a mountain with your nose.” He frowned.

“What the hell does that mean?”

“I’m not sure,” Julien admitted. “Sounded better in my head before it came out my mouth.”

WHAT WE’RE PLANNING ON READING OR HAVE READ THIS WEEK

We’ve had a fabulous reading week and are excited for what’s to come.

This has been a bittersweet week of reading for us. We’ve read some fantastic books but also cried buckets as we’ve had to say goodbye to some much loved characters whose stories have now come to a close and who will always have a place in our hearts.

We don’t feel complete without our Kindles in our hands and couldn’t function reading just one or two books a week. We CRAVE a good story and it’s the reason we read and review quite a few books a week.
Reading is a passion and we love to share that passion with you guys in the hope your next great read will be right here.

(Please note: As we are both very much mood readers, our reading taste could change from that of below, or books could be shelved for another time.)

Happy reading!

 

after darkAFTER DARK : BOOK THREE – THE NIGHT OWL TRILOGY

by M PIERCE 

SYNOPSIS

In the final novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce, can a passion that has withstood many ordeals become a love strong enough to last a lifetime?

At twenty-nine, Matt Sky is trying to return to normal, having faked his death and come back to life. He and Hannah move to a simple house in the suburbs, and strive to grow their relationship into something durable and honest. They become more and more entangled, in the best ways possible.

At twenty-eight, Hannah finally has the life she’s always wanted: she’s pursuing her career as a literary agent at Granite Wing Agency, she is writing her first solo novel, and she is living with her hot, passionate lover. For the first time, Matt and Hannah are able to explore intimacy without inhibitions—without lies, secrets, or jealousy—and the results are explosive.

Still life together is not as easy as it seems. Matt is estranged from his brothers in the wake of his cruel stunt; Seth Sky, embittered by his failed pursuit of Hannah, makes a play for Hannah’s sister; and the topic of Hannah’s novel—her relationship with Matt and the Sky family—is driving a wedge between her and Matt. The lovers are devoted to one another, having come through many ordeals, but is their bond strong enough to last a lifetime?

OUR THOUGHTS:  We’ve followed Matt and Hannah’s story with excitement and we’ve thrived the angst, drama and passion delivered by these two damaged souls. This final installment brought about every emotion. We loved it and it was such a tremendous finale to Matt and Hannah’s story. OUR REVIEW

Sweet Hope (Sweet Home #4) by Tillie ColeSWEET HOPE :  SWEET HOME BOOK FOUR

SYNOPSIS

*** NOTE: YOU NEED TO AT LEASE READ SWEET FALL BEFORE SWEET HOPE***
(We do recommend the entire series)

My name is Ally Prince and I’ve always been unlucky in love. I don’t know why, I just always… have.

When all of my best friends were falling for their soul mates in College, I was left behind. I was Ally, the pretty cousin of superstar quarterback, Romeo Prince. I was Ally, the best friend to the most amazing group of girls I’ve ever known—a title I loved, but one I became tired of ‘just’ being. And I was Ally, the one on which they could all rely.

But to me, I was Ally, the girl with the heart no one had claimed… And I was, Ally, the girl, who underneath it all, was heart-breakingly lonely.

I LOVE love; the thought of it, the nervous excitement of falling for Mr. Right, the desire of someone becoming my entire world… of me becoming theirs. I’ve always wanted passion, heart-stopping, epic, life-changing romance… I’ve always wanted the fairytale… I’ve always wanted it all.

It just never seemed like I would get it.

For the past few years I’ve thrown myself into my career as a museum curator. I’m the best of the best, the person every museum wants to hire, so when an opportunity came up to move to Seattle, I jumped at the chance. My cousin and my best friend lived in Seattle and I needed a change.

I needed a new beginning.

I wasn’t expecting to meet anyone in the Emerald City. I wasn’t expecting to work closely with the reclusive new sculptor my all-important gallery design was centered around. And I certainly wasn’t expecting to fall for him… heart-stopping, epic, life-changing love…
My real life fairytale come true.

But, like in every fairytale, there’s a villain, a dark and tortured soul… I just didn’t know that the villain and the hero in my story would end up being one and the same.

New Adult Romance Novel—contains adult content, sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up. 

OUR THOUGHTS: There just aren’t enough stars and accolades we could heap on this book that would do it justice. Without a doubt not only one of our top reads this year, but top reads EVER. The emotion this book elicited from us was so deeply felt we found ourselves talking for hours on the phone and sobbing many a times. Both heartfelt and heartwrenching this book was something so special, we’ll be reliving it time and time again remembering the beauty of Tillie Cole’s words. Is there nothing this lady can’t do?  An absolute MUST READ!!!!! OUR 5 ++ STAR REVIEW

The controversial story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners.

Knowing Søren and Kingsley will their use their influence to bring her back, Eleanor alone, penniless and scared takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow: the abbey where her mother has taken orders. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure

She cannot, however, hide from her true nature. When Eleanor befriends a young virginal nun, she faces a startling sexual awakening.

The lure of the forbidden. The temptation to sin. The price of passion has never been higher, and Eleanor will have to pay it if she ever wants to go home again

GITTE’S THOUGHTS:  Tiffany Reisz is without question one of the most brilliant Authors out there and should be on everyone’s bookshelf. Anything she writes pretty much makes my heart cry at the sheer brilliance. Evocative, passionate, thrilling, daring, sarcastic and erotic. She brings it all to the table. Her words are magical and every single one counts and hits your heart and funny bone. I love everything about her stories and characters and feel incredibly protective and in love with every single one of them. Though, Søren owns my heart in every way despite scaring the shit out of me. I am gagging to start The Virgin this weekend! Bring on the emotion overload

THE TRAVELING WOMAN  - THE TRAVELING DUET BOOK TWO 

by JANE HARVEY BERRICK

SYNOPSIS

The concluding story of Aimee and Kestrel, begun in The Traveling Man

How many times do you gamble on love? When love has knocked you down, should you give it another chance? When does optimism become stupidity?

And what happens when the man you’re in love with is never still, always moving, always traveling? Do you say goodbye, or do you leave behind everything that you’ve worked for, everything that you’ve ever known? Can a traveling carnival be my home? 

Oh. You thought I had the answers. No, sorry. No answers, just a lot of questions—and a heart that wants to rule my head. 

Can one person be my home?

OUR THOUGHTS:   One of our favourite reads this year was The Traveling Man by Jane Harvey Berrick. It was magical, beautiful, emotional and left us with a desperate need to follow Kes and Aimee’s story to the finish. We really enjoyed The Traveling Woman but didn’t experience the magic and emotion as much in this one. It didn’t take us to the dizzying heights of book one but Kes and Aimee’s story is one we wouldn’t have missed for the world!   Review to come!

SYNOPSIS


Imagine a social outcast: Me. (Luna)

Imagine a popular boy: Him. (Caleb)

Sound like the characters of a cliché story, right? Here, hold my hand. Come away with me. I’ll tell you my story, and you’ll decide.

But I have a warning: Proceed at your own risk. Since it’s a snippet of my life, I’m one of the main characters. And to put it lightly, I’m not the most likable person in the world, cue the earned label. Also, unlike fairy tales, my story is real with a dash of sorrow and loss.

How do I start? Once upon a time…? Shoot me now, please.

The beginning? No, too boring.

Well, let’s start with the catalytic moment that set in motion a chain of events that changed my life, yet again.

after darkAFTER DARK

SYNOPSIS

In the final novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce, can a passion that has withstood many ordeals become a love strong enough to last a lifetime?

At twenty-nine, Matt Sky is trying to return to normal, having faked his death and come back to life. He and Hannah move to a simple house in the suburbs, and strive to grow their relationship into something durable and honest. They become more and more entangled, in the best ways possible.

At twenty-eight, Hannah finally has the life she’s always wanted: she’s pursuing her career as a literary agent at Granite Wing Agency, she is writing her first solo novel, and she is living with her hot, passionate lover. For the first time, Matt and Hannah are able to explore intimacy without inhibitions—without lies, secrets, or jealousy—and the results are explosive.

Still life together is not as easy as it seems. Matt is estranged from his brothers in the wake of his cruel stunt; Seth Sky, embittered by his failed pursuit of Hannah, makes a play for Hannah’s sister; and the topic of Hannah’s novel—her relationship with Matt and the Sky family—is driving a wedge between her and Matt. The lovers are devoted to one another, having come through many ordeals, but is their bond strong enough to last a lifetime?

OUR THOUGHTS:  Well, this last installment left us breathless.  Exasperating. Exhilarating. Passionate. Emotional. Such a terrific end to one of our fave trilogies!

FallingFALLING – FALL OR BREAK BOOK ONE 

SYNOPSIS

Falling is easy. Landing without breaking your heart? Impossible.

Harper is no longer behind bars, but it doesn’t feel like it. Ten years serving time for a crime he didn’t commit have left him shut down, numb, and a frozen wreck over the simplest of choices.

He’s acutely aware of the dark-haired young man checking him out in the supermarket, but he’s too deep in panic mode to even meet the guy’s gaze. Afraid the slightest move will trigger a fall that will never stop.

Fresh off a long-term relationship with a controlling man, Malachi is stuck living with relatives who think he’s a waste of oxygen. The tall guy in the long, gray coat is the first bright spot he’s glimpsed in a long time…though the man’s unblinking stare at a bottle of shower gel is a touch alarming.

Hard experience tells both of them to turn away before lust turns to hopeless attraction, and inevitably to disaster. But once their sparks connect, the arc of electricity is too strong to deny. Even if the cost is too much to bear.

Warning: Contains an ex-con with disaster written all over him, a boy toy who’s trouble with a capital T, a damp old British house, compulsive meddling, and enough hot sex to cure the severe case of nervous babbling.

OUR THOUGHTS: This MM story is one we’re chomping at the bit to read. This author never fails to tell an evocative and moving story that leaves us breathless!

SYNOPSIS

Fisher,

I guess this is it, huh? After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.

Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.
Lucy

To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.

OUR THOUGHTS:  This is a heartfelt story of two people, deeply in love who strive to find their way back to each other against the turmoil of painful memories and…..to do that, they must go back to the beginning to be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other. A beautiful story. Review to come.
