• ‘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 want to be the guy you run to when the world caves in around you. I want to be the guy who can put a smile on your face and kiss away all the bad stuff…the one who gets under your skin because I’m all you can think about. But mostly I just want to be the guy you call yours, because you’re that girl for me…”

    This book. THIS BOOK! There is absolutely NO DOUBT that Back to Yesterday by Pamela Sparkman has shot straight into our all-time favourite book list. If we could give it infinite stars we would and there is nothing we want more, than to see this love story played out on the big screen. Because what an epic love story it is. Epic! The writing is spectacular in its honesty, realism, gentleness and effectiveness.

    The romance element is the kind of love we live for and swoon over. There is nothing, nothing at all that we can say which will do this second world war romance any justice. This story is truly stunning and has such innocence and depth depicting a time of yesteryears. A love story which will stay in our hearts for its timeless beauty and wonderful characters. Every romance reader should pick up this book; let it steal your heart like it did ours.

  • ‘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.

  • ‘I want him so badly it hurts. But I want all of him. Not just the sex. I want his smiles and his teasing, his smouldering looks. His sad eyes when he thinks nobody’s watching. Most of all I want his heart.’

    Unique.  Refreshing.  Original.  Beautiful.  Absolutely faaaaabulous!! There are so ways in which we could use to describe Painted Faces and they still wouldn’t do this original and heart-warming story justice. This unconventional, beautifully moving and quirky story was positively WONDERFUL! the fascinating characters, exquisite writing, wonderfully comical banter and the underlying emotional feel of the story ensured we never rested on our laurels giving us an insatiable need to witness Nicholas’s story unfold. We were held spellbound!
    If you’re looking for a romance to sweep you off your feet, something uniquely different, if you want to laugh, love and feel every emotion, then open your hearts, open your minds, and prepare to fall in love with a mouthy Irish beauty and a fabulously divine man and prepare to have your hearts stolen!

  • “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

‘My mother used to say that houses have a soul, and if that is true, the soul of Verity Crawford’s house is as dark as they come.’

If you’re wondering whether Colleen Hoover, the author responsible some of the most gut-wrenching emotional dramas and beautifully sweet emotional romances we all love so much, can pull off a gripping, horrifying and edge of your seat harrowing suspense-filled romantic thriller, you only need to read Verity to know the answer is a resounding YES! A eerie and unequivocal YES!

‘…it wasn’t gloom at all in his expression. It was despair.’

Colleen Hoover is a phenomenal author, as we’ve professed time and time again. We’re constantly astounded over the quality of the stories she delivers, and Verity has been added to that long list. Wow! How does she do it? This story had us living on our nerves, afraid yet compelled by the twists that unfolded. We had so many theories as the Crawford house and its secrets come to light through Verity’s disturbingly haunting words. Our minds were working overtime in this 5 star winner!

Emotionally charged, sinister, evocative, fascinating and very addictive. We read Verity with a knot in our stomachs from the first to last page! What a brilliant read!
