• “Choose me, Silas. I’ll love you for who you are, and we’ll have a shot at happy.”
    ‘I gripped him hard. Max. My goddamn anchor, while the storm that had been raging somewhere in me for years finally broke.’

    There were so many outstanding moments in Someday, Someday, we highlighted quote after quote, all setting our reading souls on fire, whilst tears ran down our faces. But there were smiles too, so many smiles. So much love, so much hope. The strongest people are those who cannot fall further in life, yet rise like a phoenix out of the fire from pure will and love. Those are the ones who demand our respect, love and compassion.

    We fell in love with both Max and Silas; two wonderful men. Their story was compelling, it broke our hearts and we cried for them both and what they went through. Yet their story lifted our hearts too. Two broken and somewhat lost souls finding love and peace in each other. It was quite the emotionally arduous journey, but when you find that one person who quietens the raging pain inside and at the same time shows you a path of love you never thought possible, well the leap of faith through the storm makes it all worth it in the end. When you find your person hang on tight, because love is love!

  • ‘It was the kind of magic that comes after a lifetime of searching, when you stumble upon something so perfect, you stop looking, and you say: Yes. This. I know this. I feel this. I’ve heard its footsteps echo down the hallways of my soul.’

    Sometimes a book comes along that grabs your imagination by the very scruff and demands you to vividly experience, feel, see, scent and taste every single word conveyed by its Author. A story that burrows so deep into your heart that it finds a home.

    A reader lives a thousand lives and the life we led in the Mists of the Serengeti was quite simply spectacular. A masterpiece. A rich and fragrant life filled with beauty, heartbreak, tragedy, hope, suspense and ultimately a love story of grand proportion. A love story that convinced and compelled us to the point where we saw nothing else but two souls merging through fate and ultimate consequence. Love in picturesque multicolour where darkness seeps in, to scar and destroy. A love that rose out of rubble and dust. Despair and injustice walking hand in hand with hope, spirit, and inspiration.

  • ‘I’ve never felt more alone than I do right now, never longed more for the spot by the fence with Bear, his voice deep and comforting. Instead, I’m here – on the front line in one of the world’s most harsh and hostile environments – by choice.’

    We cannot begin to describe how breath-taking yet heart-breaking this book is, how utterly captivating it is in its ugly and tragic reality. The tremendous and detailed research Kate McCarthy clearly carried out massively showed, also it ensured that we felt like we were in the midst of war with the brave souls fighting for the freedom of others.

    Fighting Absolution will stay with us as we struggle to let this story go. The characters safe in our hearts for a long time to come. The emphasis on friendship, loyalty, hardship, compassion, and love was outstanding and gave us goosebumps at times. Without question, this will be a top favourite read of 2019, one we will never forget. We closed this book with tears rolling down our cheeks and a smile on our faces from the sheer intensity of emotions we experienced whilst reading.  You do not want to miss this epic read! Little Warrior and Bear, theirs was a story we never wanted to end…

  • ‘He was far too beautiful to be sitting in the middle of my mediocre world. He wasn’t meant to be here. This wasn’t the way things were meant to go.’

    Cherry Beats is the rock star romance we have been searching for to satisfy our need for the real world of rock music, the raw emotions, the feeling of being in a packed stadium audience reverently banging our heads and belting out much-loved rock songs…out of tune of course. Cherry Beats is everything and Vicki James nailed it. The rock scene isn’t pretty, it isn’t all fun and fluffy. Its highs can be equally matched with its low’s. It can be as dark as it can be bathed in a spotlight of adoration. It’s filled with as much angst and self-doubt as it is filled with overwhelming joy and self-satisfaction.

    In our opinion, the balance to get a rock star romance spot on is like walking a tightrope, this Author danced all over that tightrope and made it her bitch. She gave us everything and more. In Cherry Beats, Vicki James wrote one of our favourite rock star romances, one which will go on the list of never forget. The writing was outstanding and we must have highlighted half the book, as our hearts were pulled back and forth by truths, analogies, heartbreak, love, self-searching and the utter despair and exhilaration of achieving childhood dreams. And of course -the music- always the music.

  • ‘If only he could slay her dragons. He’d stand over her like a lupine sentinel, snarling at whoever might approach. He’d sear the secrets from her eyes. Who could want to hurt someone like her? What could she possibly have done to warrant such violence?’

    How to Love a Duke in Ten Days by Kerrigan Byrne ticked every single box on the list of why we have such a deep love for historical romance. Not only was it brilliantly written, it had a dark, broody and mysterious hero and a heroine who encompassed both innocence and a will forged in steel. We love historical romances that showcase a time of traditions and societal rules; that keep to the time within which it is written yet highlights the strength of women in a time where the man is considered the dominant. Yes, we absolutely love the ruthlessness, the mysterious and almost aloof nature of the romantic ‘historical’ man, but what we love even more is the fierceness of the -anything but- demure heroine.

    A compelling story of intense sadness, secrets, murder, suspense and of course an enticing love story.

  • “I never thought I’d be standing here faced with a choice I can’t make, because I never.. I never imagined you would love me back.”

    OMG! We cannot wipe the grin off our faces! This book was exactly what we needed! A delightfully adorable, heartfelt, and uplifting enemies to lovers’ story that made us swoon like crazy. Our hearts are bursting with love for Alex and Henry’s beautiful, funny and meaningful romance that was tinged with moments of pure and deep emotion. So much so, we regularly found ourselves reduced to tears. Wow! The little touches to this story…..sincere, captivating and truly wonderful.

    If you’ve wanted to sample an MM book but have been a bit hesitant, this would be the perfect place to start. Seriously, your heart will thank you because Red, White, & Royal Blue relies heavily on character development, feelings, and sweetness, with the sex being present, but fade to black. And please…someone  TURN THIS BOOK INTO A MOVIE!

Our Latest Weekly RoundUp

“What’s the difference in being your friend or being your lover? You’ll forget me regardless. So why can’t I choose what I want to be to you?”
“Because I don’t want you to get hurt. I don’t want you to get a broken heart.”
“Trust me, it’s already full of cracks.”

What a sweet and beautiful story! Six Weeks of Loving You is our first-time reading author Karli Perrins work and we adored her words. We could easily see this book becoming a movie as it played out before our eyes. It had a 50 First Dates/The Vow feel, with a real emotional and romantic pull, and the authors own stamp branded throughout the pages.

We loved the humour and banter between all the characters, Karli Perrin has a fabulous sense of humour and who wouldn’t fall in love with the bromance between Spencer and Cora’s sister’s fiancé, Adam? It was hilarious! An enjoyable story with a few twists, where the swoon, emotion and engaging storyline made this a fabulous weekend read.
