Title: Tempted by Mr. Wrong

Author: Jacqui Biggar

Category: Romantic Suspense

My Rating: 4 Star

My Review:

We are introduced to Tammy-Jo as she wanders down the rain soaked street in broken heels after being humiliated by her husband at the Country Club. Immediately we get the impression of a strong woman who, despite her predicament, is still sassy.

Jason arrives on the scene like a knight in shining armour (or rather, a cute chap in a Mustang) and we begin to learn there’s a history between the two. Pulled together by their parent’s relationship, TJ and Jason are step-siblings, but ten years ago their teenage hormones got the better of them, and they explored a relationship. It was Jason who suddenly walked away without explanation and TJ is still hurting.

Married to Tim, a power-hungry man, TJ…

#Newrelease My Review of The Truth And Lies Of Ella Black by @emily_barr @penguinrandom #EllaBlack

Rosie Amber

The Truth and Lies of Ella Black by [Barr, Emily]The Truth And Lies Of Ella Black is a dark, intriguing story that, with a seventeen-year-old protagonist, is suitable for both young and adult readers. The crossing out of Ella’s name in the title certainly piqued my interest before I had even read the first page.

The story covers a timespan of forty days in Ella’s life. At the start, she is an ordinary teenager enjoying a school holiday. An only child, she attends an all-girls school and enjoys art. This, however, is where ‘normal’ ends. There are two sides to Ella: the good girl tries to behave well, work hard and fit in with her schoolmates, but Bad Ella is always lurking in the background…

Bad Ella demands time and space. Bad Ella is strong, frightening and unpredictable; when she demands to be let out, Ella has to lock herself in her room, lest she escape.

The story takes…

Announcing A Writer’s Path Writers Club: Creating Benefits For Writers

A Writer's Path

I’m happy to announce our new initiative: A Writer’s Path Writers Club.

After looking at the writing market for years, I noticed a need for a Writers Club of this kind. Sure, there are Facebook groups, writers groups, etc., but there aren’t many associations that are more than just a gathering of writers.

I wanted to create a club where the sole purpose of it is to solve headaches for writers. Here are some of the headaches I’m looking to solve:

Book review by Jenny Reeve

Chic Lit

I liked the sound of this book when I read the introduction.  I had visions of the story being filled with humour, a book that would easily make me giggle and smile throughout.  Well, I was very wrong on that score.  But that is not a bad thing; so don’t go jumping to the wrong conclusion here, on the contrary.

The beginning of the book did have me giggling, there are some very funny moments and Jennifer Brown made me think of myself quite often, her reaction to certain circumstances is how I would have reacted. Jennifer’s description of certain work colleagues in the office had me curled up!   The character is so good and the author gently took me by the hand and led me…

Crazy in Love by Annabelle Costa Book Review

51bDg7cwAkL

Blurb:

They call her Crazy Anna.

Anna Flint won’t shake your hand. She collects tin cans. She cleans her cubicle at work with Lysol several times a day. But Anna doesn’t care that they call her crazy. She’s absolutely satisfied with her life of perfect organization, cleanliness, and most of all, solitude.

Matt Harper likes Anna Flint. He likes that she’s the smartest person he knows and he likes her big blue eyes. He doesn’t even mind her can collection. In fact, he pretty much likes everything about Anna. As his body and his world are falling apart, she still manages to make him happy.

Matt is the only person Anna has ever wanted to be close to. But how can she go on a date with him if the thought of dinner at a restaurant fills her with terror? How can she ever kiss the man she loves if she can’t even touch him?

BOOK REVIEW

Who hasn’t been Crazy in Love at some point in their lifetime? However, in this story, Anna is a whole lotta different with her can collection and obsessive tendencies, especially about germs that even had me wanting to get up and clean my entire house.

Anna is a highly intelligent computer coder that has a successful career but due to her OCD she is unable to engage in any meaningful relationships, especially with the opposite sex.

Enter, Matt Harper….

2013-09-05-HuffPost-thumb

We are introduced to Matt as a healthy, strapping young gent that has his whole life ahead of him. He is also a computer coder and is Anna’s co-worker. Matt initially comes across as a bit of a player but does have some heart as he is very protective of Anna. Matt is having problems with his ankle and sees his medical doctor and his whole world is turned upside down.

Overall, this book is an interesting look at the way society reacts to those with mental conditions and those who have a physical debilitating condition and the stigma related to both. This was a nice easy paced read for me which is exactly what I was looking for in a book, and please be sure to read the acknowledgements at the end of the book. 🙂

I give this book three out of four “SOCKS”. See rating system here. Crazy in Love is available for purchase on Amazon here.

One last note, I couldn’t end this review without mentioning Beyone’s song, Crazy in Love……..
