• ‘I hugged her. I was holding her with every part of me, every piece of my flesh that could reach her.
    And I didn’t let go.
    Not even when she fell asleep.’

    As we wipe away our tears, we declare this to be one of our favourite reads this year. This is one of those books we feel the need to grab every fellow reader who appreciates an extraordinarily well written and heartfelt story, one that relies on raw human emotion rather than unnecessary drama or theatrics and yell, read this book. The feelings you’ll experience from this story will leave you breathless, cherishing every moment, and remembering Alix, Dylan and Smith’s story as though you lived it.

    There is something almost spiritual about this story, a story about the empowerment of love, its strength, its resilience, and its pain, and didn’t Marni Mann just give her whole heart to these characters. Her convincing, sincere and heart-rending story showcased her incredible writing talent, in a story that affected us deeply; one that will forever live within us.

  • ‘Yearning. There it was again. Suddenly yearning had a flavor. It tasted like a king, a beautiful, frightening, infuriating man who flew into my life and began to free my words.’

    We love our paranormal reads, our fantasy and our otherworldly stories, they offer a complete escape into a magical and mysterious world where good and evil reside, wars are fought and loyalties tested. We do find though that they are few and far between or don’t quite hit the spot we crave to be filled.

    Well, this did not just simply fill it – it overflowed with stunning, breath-taking moments of pure magic as Amy Harmon’s world consumed us and her characters captivated us. We fell in love with absolutely everything in this flawless, thrilling and epic tale of cursed ones, greed, and magic as well as the ultimate, love.

    Creative with such stunning vivid imagery, we lived in a world of enchantment rapidly turning pages from start to finish inhaling every word spoken- or not.

    The Bird and the Sword »
  • ‘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’m a living proof that a heart can be broken a thousand times and still function, still keep you alive— desperately hoping that it won’t happen again, all the while knowing it will.’

    Every now and then we’re blessed to read a book that reaches into our soul, touching us in ways we know we’ll never forget. A story that leaves us in complete awe of an author’s phenomenal talent, pondering how we can ever do justice to the words we’ve been so privileged to read.  A story where the words, the feelings, the characters and the journey the author took us on are indelibly etched into our hearts, constantly reliving all the heart-warming, heartbreaking and memorable moments over and over again. The Ribbon Duet by Pepper Winters is that book.  We experienced the complete sphere of emotions in Ren and Della’s unforgettable soulmate love story.

    Read our Review for The Ribbon Duet »
  • “When I touch you, I’m touching you because I want to make you happy. When I kiss you, I’m kissing you because you have the most incredible mouth I’ve ever seen and you know I can’t not kiss it. And when I make love to you—I’m doing exactly that. I’m making love to you because I’m in love with you.”

    Colleen Hoover is one storyteller who we feel could write just about anything and it would be captivating. There is the perfect blend of light and dark in this book so you don’t feel weighed under with sadness but you do feel sad, you do feel the hopelessness and the hopefulness of Sky and Holder.  Just as it becomes too much and you think you won’t recover, the author injects humour and warmth and brings you back from the brink.  It was perfectly crafted, wonderfully told and Hopeless forever has a special place in our hearts. A story not to be missed. When Holder reassures Sky that  “the moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you’ve never felt anything when someone’s kissed you, then no one’s ever really kissed you.  Not the way I plan on kissing you” – and how true this was! Not only did Sky feel that first kiss but we did too!

Our Latest Weekly RoundUp

“Tell me a story…. Tell me a story, Deidre so I can paint something beautiful with your words.”

Tick. Tock. Didn’t this duet give our hearts and nerves a run for their money! L M Halloran led us into the darkness, taking us on a suspenseful, raw and gritty rollercoaster of emotions, into a world of duplicity, passion, and a haunting past kept us on our toes, guts churning. A love story against the odds kept our romantic hearts beating. Captivating and intelligent storytelling kept us turning the pages.

L M Halloran is one of our favourite authors. She’s a lady who never fails to weave an emotional, passionate and gripping story, with her talent for painting a picture with her exquisite and intuitive storytelling leaving us spellbound. The Illusions Duet was emotional, sensual and erotic yet the sex didn’t overshadow the flow, intensity or grittiness of the story. Instead, it served as a sexually charged enhancement rather than a page filler. A mesmerising epilogue capped off another fabulous read!

NOTHING BUT TROUBLE (Malibu University #1) by P DANGELICO

REVIEW: ‘Love doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It’s inextricably intertwined with self-sacrifice, vulnerability, risk…and yes pain. Maybe that’s why we’re so often disillusioned by it. We demand it to be perfect when in essence love can’t exist without the risk of pain and the cost of safety.’

REVIEW: “I’m asking you to choose the hardest route so that we can spend the rest of our lives dancing in the end zone.”
