SNOWFLAKES & FIRE ESCAPES by J M DARHOWER – ALL I WANT ANTHOLOGY

all i want

SYNOPSIS

 

Cody Moran and Gracie Callaghan wanted nothing more than to escape the life they’d been born into, but it’s the kind of life that doesn’t like to let go. A story of love and heartache spanning the streets of Hell’s Kitchen to far, far away, where it doesn’t snow.

✯✯✯✯✯ wonderful stars!

J.M Darhower really has the knack for grabbing us the moment we open our kindles to start one of her new stories. This time was no exception. Snowflakes & Fire Escapes had us riveted and we read it in one sitting wanting more long after reading the last page. It was spell binding; intriguing and chock a block of emotion and suspense.  The characters had such depth in this flawlessly written story that really packed a punch in such a short space of time. Did we mention we wanted more? *Cough* J.M we want MORE!!!!

‘I don’t put up a fight. It doesn’t matter where I’m going. Not as long as where I’m going, I have him.’

Gracie and Cody had a hard life through no fault of their own; rather their place in it was determined by who they were born to and the roles they had to play to survive. It was heart breaking, so sad – yet so sweet at the same time. Hell’s Kitchen was indeed just that for these two and the obstacles placed in the way kept reminding them of just what they couldn’t have or be.

“Couldn’t keep my eyes off you back then, guess I loved you even when I was ten.”

The drama was quite action packed and as their story unfolded a new character came into it who we NEED to know more about, yeah we’re talking about Holder! So yeah, we loved this story and we need and want more Cody and Gracie as well as the enigma that is Holden. Pretty please!

‘This couldn’t really be Hell…not when I looked at him and swore I could see Heaven.’

Just as every snowflake is unique and magical; so is J.M Darhower. She mesmerises us every single time. A must read!

✯✯✯✯✯ feelgood stars!

“I’d risk anything and everything for her.”

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and what a perfect way to start off our festive season reading than with Stranded by BJ Harvey which is part of the All I Want Anthology!

Stranded was everything we could wish for in a Christmas Novella.  It was a delicious mix of sweet, flirty, fun, very sexy and Christmassy!  Just perfect! Harlow and Porter certainly use their time wisely (and passionately) while they’re stranded in Chicago just before Christmas and we enjoyed every minute spent with them.

We’ll put it out there and say we certainly wouldn’t be complaining if we were stuck with the absolutely drop dead gorgeous pilot Porter Daniels for a few days! Whoa! He certainly had us swooning through Stranded that’s for sure!

“I’m not strong enough to stay away. I need you more than my next breath, and I plan to keep breathing for a long, long time.”

Harlow and Porter both have feelings for each other but they have admired one another from afar. Being thrust together during a snow storm in Chicago, giving them the opportunity to test their feelings and the way BJ Harvey told their story was absolutely wonderful. We believed in the characters and we felt their connection immediately.

There’s nothing like a friends to lovers story, add in a Christmas feel, a wonderful story, loads of passion, two characters who are down to earth, no unnecessary drama, and we had a winner with Stranded. In fact we were sad to say goodbye to this couple and could have happily spent more time with them, we loved them THAT much!

“Kiss me, Porter.”

Stranded gave us that warm, Christmas glow, it left us happy, fulfilled and feeling as though we’d just opened and enjoyed the perfect Christmas present!

Don’t hesitate in grabbing this one, yule be glad you did!
