• “I want you to know something,” he whispers, words barely there, his nose inches from mine. “You said nobody does but – I see you, Noelle. I do.”

    We loved the premise of Eight Perfect Hours; it was so deliciously swoony it made us melt into puddles. But this wasn’t just a meant-to-be romance, it was so much more. It was about friendships, grief, family, mental health, and second chances. All weaved together in such an insightful and emotional manner, we were fully invested and captured by this feel-good romance from the first page till the last. If you haven’t experienced Lia Louis’s work yet, you really must add her to your reading list, you won’t regret it!

    Eight Perfect Hours was a wonderful and emotional story of life, hope, dreams, and relationships. Of the sacrifices, we make for those we love, of pushing ourselves out of a stagnant rut, and of the risks, we’re willing to take. It was a story of love and kismet.

  • ‘To live without her would be unbearable. No, not even that; it would be impossible.’

    Our hearts were pounding to the beat of the mood throughout, they beat with joy, passion, heartbreak, and anticipation.

    What a phenomenal love story! If we could, we would buy this book for every one of you to make sure it ended up in your hands, because this is one of the most romantic, exhilarating, intense, heartbreaking, emotionally torturous love stories and it deserves to be read by YOU ALL! We cried tears –so many tears- tears out of both love and hurt. This is pure untainted romance, written to perfection. This is romance in its purest and most beautiful definitions. This journey is wondrous and mesmerising. This is the epitome of the saying ‘without darkness you cannot see the light.’ Julianna and Henri stole our hearts, and we gladly gave them away.

  •  ‘He was the sea. Rough. Dangerous. Dependable. No matter how far he travelled or how long he stayed away, he always returned to me.’

    An outstanding and epic tale, Sea of Ruin was stunning yet dark, passionate yet disturbing. A story we will think about in the days, even years to come and without question pick up again and again. Captured from the first word until the last, we lived and breathed the sea, pirate life, love, heartbreak, and misfortune.

    We cannot express the utter love we have for Sea of Ruin; it was incredible, it was more than we ever imagined. The vivid and emotive led depiction from Pam Godwin enthralled our senses as we fell in love with a historical pirate romance. We fell in love with the characters, we cried, we swooned, and it made us want to pick up a cutlass and board The Jade and sail into the deep waters. Searing chemistry, intense relationships, dramatic and dark we cannot recommend Sea of Ruin highly enough! You will go through hell and high waters, you will experience a poignant love affair so intense and soulful, you will feel despair and mortification, yet you will feel joy, hope, and magic too!

  • “Tell me your story…”
    “You don’t want to hear my story. It’s not a nice story.”
    That doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve to be told.” 
    She whispers back.

    5 heartfelt stars, and what an introduction to Jennifer Hartmann’s storytelling! The Wrong Heart has left an indelible mark on our hearts, as we’re still living every moment of this unforgettable emotionally stirring story of love, grief, and second chances. What could have been cliché was anything but, thanks to the incredible talent of Jennifer Hartmann. This lady turned this theme on its head, delivering a unique and all-consuming love story that left us emotionally drained, yet so completely fulfilled. When we say we loved everything about this story, we mean everything!

    Jennifer Hartmann shredded our hearts to pieces, then stitched them back together with love, sincerity, and a whole lot of clever and insightful storytelling.

  • “…love isn’t about who bought who the better birthday gift or how many carats her diamond ring is. It’s that you can look at this woman on a regular ole Tuesday night and know you’d make the same decision to be with her as the day you asked her to marry you.”

    When we picked up Time Stamps by K.L. Kreig we had no idea about the journey we were about to embark on. The synopsis grabbed us the moment we read it, but in no way did it prepare us for the utter devastation and emotional heartbreak we’d feel. Pulling at our heartstrings yet making us melt into deep swoons, it became a rollercoaster of before and now, divided into unrestrained joy then overwhelming sadness.

    Laurel and Roth’s love story was intense, it was filled with realism and unguarded honesty. It was adorably awkward and at times hilariously eccentric. It was incredibly poignant and inspirational too. If it wasn’t slow trickle tears, it was full-on ugly cry tears, all the way through!

Our Latest Weekly RoundUp

‘Youth makes you believe you’re indestructible, but by the time age teaches you wisdom, it’s too late to learn from the truths.’

Only 99c/77p for this book? That’s almost criminal! Do not hesitate to grab this book! Two women, two lives, divided by an ocean – and a secret hidden for 75 years. What an incredible story! We were in floods of tears throughout this book.

The word epic tends to get bandied around a bit these days, but in the case of The Lilac Cadillac, this word is warranted, because this truly is an epic and sweeping story of love, loss, and sacrifice. And it’s a story so cleverly and sincerely brought to life by Jane Harvey-Berrick, we were left breathless in its heartbreak and beauty, taking to heart the thought-provoking message in a book that will stay with us forever. We’re told to embrace life. To live for every moment, to love no matter what obstacles are placed in our paths.

Please, please read this book. Nothing anyone could say would do justice to the words written between the pages or the love given in each chapter. We always connect to a story when we can feel the author’s heart in the book, and that so evident in The Lilac Cadillac. Dolly, Joe, Fiona – Sylvia, Harry, and Charlie’s stories felt personal to us. We shed so many tears for them.
