My review of Twisted Love by R.C. Stephens

51VczjBaJ9L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_This book was absolutely captivating from start to finish, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it (very late last night). I admit that I did not read the first book in the series, but I easily could follow the story of Alexis, Dylan and Luc. Alexis is in her last year of law school, Dylan is in his residency program as a doctor, and Luc is….let’s just say trouble.

The book takes place in Canada with Alexis haven been severely beaten, hospitalized for several days, and suffered a terrible loss. She returns home to her best friend and roommate, Anna, and starts therapy to overcome her abusive childhood and her current situation. Dylan is trying to win the love and trust of Alexis back, but is also harboring things from his past that he fears will have Alexis running, and Luc is trying to stay out of jail, hold onto Alexis, while trying to keep her safe from his family (which I found a little ironic). I don’t want to even get started on Alexis’ mother!!!

I think that author does an amazing job by wrapping up the book by writing, “Fate had twisted our love but when true love was given to you, you didn’t back down. You fought hard and made life what you wanted it to be.”

With that being said, this book is a little bit of a time jumper and there was a lot going on in this book with the other characters that had me a little confused. What happened to Alexis’ sister? I understand she want back to school, but after their phone conversation she wanted to reveal something to Alexis, and she’s never heard from again. Alexis’ mother, the evil wrench, suddenly has an about face? Anna reveals something life altering from her past to Alexis over text? As riveting as this book was and as happy as I was to see it end the way it did, I will still baffled by some of the character’s roles in the book. I don’t know if the author is going to continue the series or if she was just trying to wrap up the last book as best as she could. Just my opinion. It is my review, right?

My review of Skin by Dale Mayer

download (4)

This book is about two people, Tania and Kane, going through issues of their past in a five day group therapy session held at a hotel. Kane, six-foot-four, 240 pounds of muscle, has anger issues from a past relationship and Tania (aka Tinkerbelle) is petite and is struggling with issues from being raped twelve years ago. Their therapist, Jenna, puts Tania and Kane together to work on a project to help them in their recovery. Through their project, Tania uses her camera to see the real Kane, and is able to let her guard down to slowly allow Kane in. Kane, realizing what Tania has been through, is compassionate, caring, and patient with Tania to aid in her recovery. Throughout the project, they help each other overcome their issues from their past and can move forward in a healthy way.

Honestly, I didn’t want this book to end. I wanted more of Tania and Kane’s story after the therapy session.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, and I’m glad I was because it is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!!
