REVIEW
*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

What a cute story! We get to meet Millie as she saves a baby possum. This leads to her meeting Caleb the hot young guy at the pet store. She proceeds to try to hook him up with her granddaughter Jade. The story takes place in the adorable town of Kinsey Falls mostly in the converted community center that combines apartments and shops all in one building. The dynamics of the residents is a nice twist as well that adds to the overall story. It was quite nice taking a trip with these women as they went about their daily lives. Overall I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

Blog Tour & Giveaway for the Destiny's Series by Victoria Saccenti


Destiny's Plan
Destiny's Series Book 1
By Victoria Saccenti
Genre: Historical Romance
One empty bus seat. Two aching hearts. A future written by Fate…


When Raquelita Muro’s overbearing mother rips her and her little sister away from their beloved Papa, one tiny, rebellious corner of Raquelita’s heart is grateful that the bus is crowded, and the only seat left is out of Mama’s sight. Next to a handsome young man.

Matthew Buchanan’s beautiful traveling companion is more than something pretty to look at before he ships out for Viet Nam. Deep in her sad, whisky-colored eyes he glimpses a new dream to replace the ones he’s leaving behind. It breaks his heart to leave Raquelita in her tyrannical mother’s hands, but she gifts him with a token of love and a tender promise to exchange letters in secret.

But their first, shy “hello” has reached the ears of Fate. Fate is in the mood to see how far it can push two lonely hearts—to the brink of temptation, desperation, and despair—before they break. Perhaps beyond any hope of healing…


Destiny's Choice
Destiny's Series Book 2
No one evades Fate. Especially when the escape route is cracked and full of holes.


As a naïve young woman, Marité Muro nearly drowned in a maelstrom of confusing emotions stirred by two very different men. One whose tortured soul tugged at her heart, another whose scorching touch made her innocent body want…more.

Four years in a Spanish prep school gave her time to gain perspective, and now she’s come home to Florida knowing what she wants. The one man she’s never been able to forget, and she’s ready to prove their age difference is no obstacle.

Viet Nam left scars on Brian MacKay, some visible, some invisible—and infinitely more dangerous. His war buddy’s little sister has ripened into a tempting, irresistible woman, but she is forbidden fruit. Yet she challenges his resolve until, in a moment of weakness, his demons slip free.

Marité isn’t sure why the man who held her closer than skin is suddenly holding her at arm’s length, but she isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants. Even when someone returns from the past who could destroy everything. Her home. Her family. And Brian’s love.


Destiny's Way
Destiny's Series Book 3
Destiny can show the way home...if it can navigate the shadows of Fate. 


Brian MacKay’s love for Marité Muro burns with the heat of an eternal flame. But when he catches her cousin, Michael, forcing an unwanted kiss upon her, Brian’s jealousy comes dangerously close to flaring out of control. 

In a moment of despair, he packs his bags and boards a plane for Round Rock, convinced Marité will be better off with anyone else. Someone younger. Someone who isn’t dragging around a crippling load of baggage—and PTSD-fueled demons.

Anger tears at Marité’s heart as she flees to her Abuela’s home. Anger at Brian for abandoning her so easily. At Michael for trying to reignite their past infatuation. Mostly, anger at herself for realizing too late that it’s past time to grow up, take responsibility for her own part in the debacle, and fight for the only man she’ll ever love.

But Fate has a few more tricks to play before Brian and Marité find the strength to reconcile. Some that haunt Brian’s war-torn mind. Another threatening from Michael’s dangerous ambitions. And one tiny, fragile miracle growing under Marité’s heart, with the power to heal their past and seal their future. If it lives long enough to draw its first breath…

A Suspenseful and Sensual Love Story...

From award-winning author, Eichin Chang-Lim, comes a love story that will grip you from beginning to end. 


Life changes on a dime. Few understand this painful truth quite like Violet and Dylan, former college sweethearts united by their troubled childhoods.

When a gut-wrenching tragedy strikes in their adult years, they're torn apart—their relationship unable to survive the blow. Though they go their separate ways, they remain connected by a meaningful token: a locket, which Dylan bestows upon Violet on a blissful day by a gorgeous beach in Coronado, California—to which he holds the key. 

This lovelock remains to be their only connection as they struggle to rebuild their lives. Violet, an aspiring actress, grapples with mental illness and ends up stripping for a living. In the meantime, Dylan faces his own challenges while trying to manage his past trauma with an unknown future. They each venture down their own dark path laced with drugs and manipulative, taxing characters. All the while, neither can shake off their longing for the love they once shared and endeared. 

In spite of life's impediments, can they heal their past and find happiness alone, or together?

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

What an amazing addition to this series! We pick up right where book one left off and things are really getting interesting with the guys now. All three want her and have no plans to give up. The problem is that she feels for all three of them in an even split. Decisions decisions. I cannot wait for the fireworks that I know have to come at some point. This should get really interesting. As if that is not enough she has to deal with girls from the guys' past as well as people from her own. We get a another emotional cliff hanger at the end that leaves me wishing book three was already done. If you are a fan of paranormal romance novels set in our world just full of magic and supes then you so have to read this book/series. I loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

This time we learn some last history while we follow her along with a new romance as well as a twist on another relationship. If you enjoy paranormal romance then you should really read this.

Blog Tour & Giveaway for Taker of Lives by Leslie Wolfe


Taker of Lives
by Leslie Wolfe
Genre: Thriller, Suspense
How can you outrun a killer you won’t see coming?


They are the most violent, blood-thirsty, and vicious of criminals. While hunting for them, FBI profilers call these monsters UNSUBS, short for unknown subjects of ongoing investigations. At any given time, in the United States there are more than fifty serial killers at large, preying on vulnerable, unsuspecting victims. 

Until yesterday, no one knew Florida had another serial killer on the loose. Special Agent Tess Winnettcalls this particularly elusive one the Taker of Lives.

The crimes: bewildering

After a well-known model commits suicide, Tess refuses to accept the findings and pushes for an investigation into the reasons behind the beautiful young woman’s decision to end her life. What she finds surpasses her wildest fears.

The evidence: disturbing 

Each new crime scene brings more questions than answers. While secrets are revealed, even those meant to be kept forever in the dark, Tess can draw only one conclusion: she’s not the one in charge; the Taker of Lives controls the game, the players, even the course of the investigation. 

The race: intense

With little information and even less evidence, Tess must connect the dots of a deadly scenario with a large number of potential victims. If she fails, another beautiful, young girl will die tonight, and the blood will be on her hands.

The Taker of Lives might be closer than you think. Who’s watching you sleep tonight?
