Review: Black Moon

Black Moon Black Moon by J.D. Tyler
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I hated this book. It was extremely emo. He had a terrible childhood.. That sucks man. But now you have awesome job and friends and a hot girl who is into you despite your whine-y ness... Thats totally a word. And good lord Mack was also super freaking annoying. He blew her off and then is a dick to her and then one day he is nice and asks her to lunch... I would have refused but not only does she go on the date, she takes him to her special spot( gag) and has sex with him. Seems like a fantastic life choice. They also overused pet names. Which again made me want to gag.

I don't know guys. I wanted to like it but I just didn't.. at all.

Review: The Unyielding

The Unyielding The Unyielding by Shelly Laurenston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Shelly Laurenston. I don't think I can ever say that enough. Her writing is beyond perfection and no I am not one of her street team or whatever the equivalent team of bloggers she has but I just fucking love her. There isn't a single book I have read of hers or G.A Aiken that I haven't absolutely loved.

This book was fantastic. I love Erin. I have loved her since the first book but I loved that she got her own book. And Steig.. hahah I loved him to. I basically just love everyone okay. But seriously these characters are all so fantastic!

This book was kind of intense and the world depends all on Erin... which has everyone kind of well terrified. And Steig tags along and helps her out.

This book was hilarious and sweet in a dick-ish sort of way. I don't think there is another person in the universe that could have put up with Erin the way the Steig did.

Review: The Sinner

The Sinner The Sinner by Margaret Mallory
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is the second book I have read from this author and it's another low rating. I don't think she will work for me at all. The men are all assholes. They are highlanders and they are suppose to be cave man ish but Alex was a douche. Which is exactly what I said about Ian in the last book.
Alex proposes and in his proposal he tells Glynis that he won't embarrass her. He will be deseret when he sleeps with other women... I understand that that's just how things were and that at least he was being honest about it.. but gah come on man.

The start of this book was actually okay. I enjoyed the story until they actually slept together. Alex was upfront saying he would never want anything more than sex. Glynis agrees she wants nothing else either but of course she changes her mind and she gets all whiney about it. Some things happen that I won't say because it gives things away but they end up getting married. And that's where it REALLY goes downhill for me. Glynis jumps to conclusions and she is a freaking crying ninny. Alex actually turns out to be somewhat okay after they get married. He promised not to sleep around and he doesn't. There was just so many stupid arguments between the couple. I was so annoyed. I almost stopped reading the book at 80% because it was unbearable.

I don't think I will read the next one.. I think I am done with this series and this author.

Review: Ravished by a Highlander

Ravished by a Highlander Ravished by a Highlander by Paula Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great highlander book.. I feel like I need to read her other series first. I think it's about Rob's parents. Sigh I need a reading order that combines everything. I tried to figure it out but I was at work and I was attempting to work... haha

Anyways the book was good... It was good but kind of predictable and pretty much like a lot of other highlander books. Rob was adorable. I think he is one of my favorite highlanders because he didn't try to hide his affections.

idk im lazy today. So thats it.

Review: Seduction of a Highland Lass

Seduction of a Highland Lass Seduction of a Highland Lass by Maya Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn't think I'd like this book. I read a few reviews before I started it.. and I shouldn't have done that. I went into it with a negative attitude and it took me days to actually start.

I loved Keeley! I loved her more than I loved Mairin from the first book. And I defiantly loved Alaric more than Ewan. Did I think it was kind of shitty that they decided to have a relationship when Alaric was pretty much engaged? Sure but the thing is Keeley went to his room knowing that there was 0% chance of it going beyond that night. I think the relationship between the characters grew beautifully. I just really enjoyed the couple. Alaric had a few jerky moments and I think that Keeley was a stronger character by far but I still loved them together.

I also fell completely in love with Caelen. I am almost afraid to read his book and be disappointed. He was absolutely amazing in this book.

Review: Etched in Bone

Etched in Bone Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*****Spoilers.. obvious ones but they are in here*****

I am heartbroken. I had no idea that this was the last book of Meg and Simon's story. So I went into this book all "tra la la la" and I finished it and I was like "Anne girl. You gave me a small little kiss. The next book better have some serious passion" And then I got on here to rate the book and shelf the next one and BAM! I find out that, that was the ending for their story.. and then I got kind of rage-y.

Now I have calmed down a little. Because eh what can you do? But I am still really sad over how their story ended. I have given Meg and Simon 5 books.. 5 books I read and they kiss once in the last paragraph of this book. Yes it's clear Meg has some issues but come on! Did it have to take 5 whole freaking books? And I hate hate how they became "official". Simon asking Meg if they are mates. That's just disappointing.

But again whatever. The books have all been fantastic and I haven't been able to put any of them down. I loved everything about the story and about the courtyard and the howling not wolf. I am just sad that it's over.

Review: The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever

The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Julia Quinn
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I hated this book. This is the 5th book by Julia Quinn that I've read and I just don't think I like her writing. Well I did like the Duke and I. But the others.. not so much.

My problem with this book was 100% Miranda. She has been in love with Turner since she was 10.. for 9 years.. and in those 9 years Turner hasn't looked at her or spoken to her and he married someone else. I do not understand how you can be in love with someone who literally doesn't notice you. He said some kind things to her when she was 10. BFD. Doesn't mean you devote your life to him. It reeks of desperation and I was so embarrassed for her. Reading this made me physically cringe and want to hide my kindle in the closet.

Turner comes off as an asshole.. but is he really? He is 9 years older than his sister and her best friend. Is he really an asshole for not paying attention to her? And even after his wife dies and he turns cold.. is he really at fault? I don't think so. Should he have kissed her that first night? No. But the dude just buried a women he hated and spent all day listening to people talk about how wonderful she was. It's logical that he was emotional.. and drunk. I think that Miranda should have not gone anywhere near him. But she loves him oh so much and can't turn away. Gag me with a spoon.

The only part of this book that was marginally good was the first couple months of their marriage. They were playful and fun but then Miranda gets all weepy about him not saying the words "I love you" Turner pretty much worships the ground she walks on but she is in a fit because he won't voice the words. She had a husband that was devoted to only her (which at that time wasn't normal) and he was sweet and fun and sexy and kind. But nooooo everything is terrible because he can't say that he loves her. I'll take actions over words any day.

What really sucks is I loved Olivia.. I'll probably have to read the next book. I just hope she doesn't turn out to be a little pansy like her friend Miranda.

Review: Firestorm

Firestorm Firestorm by Donna Grant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book! Dimitri never stood out to me... I honestly don't even remember him at all before this book. It's been a long while since I've read about the Dragon Kings but still. I kind of love him. He hated humans and never wanted to mate but as soon as he met Faith he changed his mind. Yes it's cliche but what I loved about this book was that he didn't fight it the whole damn book. A lot of these books have the couple fighting each other until the end and that's annoying. Faith and Dimitri get together pretty much right away and I am totally okay with that. Actually I prefer that. I liked seeing them work together and I like that they didn't hide their feelings and just accepted that they were into each other. Why fight it? It's a time of war. Take what happiness you can.

Now the storyline.. you know besides the romance.. I am not sure how to talk about it with out giving it away. So I'll just say that things take an interesting twist. And things are getting interesting with Con.

As always Donna Grant's writing is fabulous. This story has been going on forever and it's still just as interesting as it was with the first Highlander book. I love that the warriors and druids get mentioned. I just love Donna Grant and this whole world.

Review: Just Like Heaven

Just Like Heaven Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I wasn't going to write a review for this book because well I kind of hated it. Maybe not hate but it was so freaking boring. I almost stopped reading it so many times.

A lot of the problem I think was the narrator. I got the audiobook and she was just terrible. Other than that, nothing really happened in the book. The only part of it I liked was the last 5%. Marcus was adorably awkward and I loved him.. but the story was boring. I think if Honoria were more exciting, maybe it would have been better? I don't know.

I was going to rate this 1 star until the ending. Almost every historical romance I read had cheesy endings. Hell most romances I read have cheesy endings. But I think this one ended perfectly. It was a beautiful ending.

Review: Into the Fire

Into the Fire Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reading the last book in a series is always bittersweet. I have loved this series for so long and I have re-read the first 3 books at least 5 times. I honestly don't know exactly what it is about the books that I love so much but I can't get enough of Leila and Vlad. I think it's just Frost's writing because I re-read the Night Huntress too.

This book Vlad and Leila are trying to break the hex that ties Leila's life to Mircea. There is a lot of magic in this one.. where as in the others they only touch on some magic. Ian is brought in because he is well versed in the magic world.

I don't want to give away anything but some shit goes down. Seriously some serious things happen. Things that kind of blow my mind and I have questions! Like WTF is going on with Gretchen and Maximus? And why don't I like them together? I really freaking hope there isn't a book for them.. is that bad? I have heard that there is going to be a spin off for Ian.. which I am super excited about because omg he royally screwed himself over and I need to know what happens.

That ending was totally heartbreaking. I have had a couple hours to process it and I still don't really understand why a certain thing had to happen... It did nothing for the plot or any of the characters. But tis the life of a reader to be confused by some choices.

I was a little underwhelmed with this book. I don't know what I was expecting really but I just feel like I have more questions than I did before I started. I know that it's set up for a spin off but I think it ended too abruptly. Even for Vlad and Leila. idk I just feel meh about it. I don't feel happy or excited.. I just feel Meeeeeh.

Review: Fae Encounter

Fae Encounter Fae Encounter by L.E. Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ah sigh. I freaking love The Kincaid werewolves. I loved the first book in this spin off series, To Covet The Fae and I loved this book. There is just something about a Scottish brogue that gets be every time.

Marc is going to Texas to warn the pack about the dark fae. Bronnagh is fae that has been battling her dark tendencies for awhile. She is looking for her family and thinks following Marc is her best way to find them. Marc knows someone is following him even though he can't see anyone. There is a lot more going on in the Texas pack than what meets the eye.

I loved this story. There is a whole lot going on but I enjoyed every second of it. I love how Wilson writes her books. I love that there's so much happening. I never want to put the book down. I can't wait for the next one!

Review: Devil in Spring

Devil in Spring Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

So this book... I can't decide if I like it or not. I am leaning towards not..

I can't say that I was overly excited for Pandora's story but I loved the last book and I wasn't looking forward to Helen's story so I thought it might end up like that. But Pandora was sooooo childish. I like eccentric characters. Especially in a historical romance. It makes the story more interesting. But Pandora wasn't eccentric.. she was a 21 year old child. And I think that's how Gabriel treated her. He talked to her like she was a child and he called her his darling girl. I just got a creepy vibe from the romance. She was so naive and childlike and he so was not. I just felt weird reading it.

When Pandora acted her age, I liked the story. Really I liked the story after they got married.. which happened like 80% into it? I think? I don't know exactly but it was really good after that. I loved that Pandora didn't want to get married because she wanted her own life. She didn't want to be owned and she wanted to make her board games. That was awesome. I hated that she never really grew up. I just couldn't stand the way she acted. I have read stories with eccentric characters and I have read stories where the girl is naive and I never felt like they were childish. So I know there is a difference and Pandora just wasn't a great character.

Yup that's pretty much it. I felt awkward reading about Gabriel seducing a child like adult. I didn't see how the relationship worked at all. It made zero sense. Sorry Pandora but I just don't get it. I felt no connection. Well that's not true. I felt like there was a fatherly or brotherly connection. Which made things awkward.

Review: Hold

Hold Hold by Zannie Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got on Amazon to get the next Ice Barbarian book by Ruby Dixon and I kind of stumbled on this one and it sounded good.

Riana get in trouble to trespassing... yeah thrown onto a prison planet for life because she trespassed.. haha life is a freaking bitch. This prison planet, the Hold, is disguising. There are no rules and very few females. She was given the advise to find the biggest guy there, give herself to him and then he would protect her.. and that is exactly what she did.

So the story line is pretty basic. I have actually read a story similar to this before. And I am still not quite sure why I needed to read this.. honestly I think it had a lot to do with the cover. So simple but still amazing. So great job to whoever made the cover because I paid $2.99 for a short book because of it.

I loved Cain (he's the big guy that she gives herself to. In case that wasn't obvious). He was gruff, didn't like to talk, and he grunted a lot. But he was also sweet and while everyone else in the prison was basically an animal, he kept his humanity.. at least most of it. Raina I had a harder time liking and I honestly can't tell you why. Her thoughts just annoyed me.

Do I think this book was worth 3 dollars? No, it was too short to pay a regular ebook price. But it was still entertaining and If the next book ever goes on sale, I will buy it.. I just won't pay $3 for it. I am very curious about Hall and I think it'll be a good book.

Review: King's Cage

King's Cage King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am so upset.. not because the book wasn't fantastic because it was but because I thought this was the last book in the series.. and it's not.

I could not put this book down. Everyone in my house is mad at me. I only told my 1 month old that she was the prettiest girl in the world 102 times instead of 103 and she is pissed . My husband got a turkey sandwich for dinner and a wife who ignored his every attempt at conversation (although he is pretty much use to this when I have a book to read). My dogs look at me like I betrayed them because I didn't give them treats yesterday and I don't care!

This book started exactly where the last one left off. Do you remember that? Mare being an idiot? or I guess heroic but whatever. She turned herself over to Maven and he puts a collar on her on camera. So about half the book is about Mare's time being Maven's prisoner. Mare is put in a nice bedroom with warm food and water but she is stripped of her lightening. Which leaves an empty hole inside her. She is also not allowed to leave the bedroom unless Maven requests it. Maven becomes more and more obsessed with her the longer she is with him. It's creepy and sweet.. yes I said sweet. I like Maven I always have. I am now and will always be Team Maven. I always root for the bad guys though. We find out a whole lot more about him in this book. We find out a lot of the twisted things his mother did to him and why his mind is so completely screwed up.

The second half of the book is about the scarlet guard. There are new alliances and a lot of different new bloods. Cal is there and he is perfect as usual. I don't think Mare needs perfect. She doesn't need someone to coddle her. I mean she doesn't need someone to torture her either but we will see what Aveyard has for us in the next book.

I feel like it has been so long since I read the first 2 books that I forgot how entertaining they are. I love how unpredictable this series is. I feel like every other chapter I think "well that was unexpected".. ok more realistically I thought "WTF". Most book I read I can guess at least some part of it but I can't with these. Absolutely a fantastic book and I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book.

Review: Suddenly You

Suddenly You Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Not my favorite... I hate Jack. HATE him. He was a manipulative little shit. And Amanda was so weak. Jack would kiss her and she would melt at his feet. And Im just here sitting on my couch like "girl get a freaking grip. Have some damn pride."

I feel like I would have really liked the story if I wasn't so mad about how Jack treated Amanda. He kissed and undressed her under false pretenses when they first met. He used that information to blackmail her into working for him. He used her inexperience in sex to make her do what he wanted. He saw it all as a game. If someone ever talked to me the way he talked to Amanda, he would be missing a few teeth. Jack just didn't think about her feelings at all. That is one of the downsides in reading both POVs. I knew he never had any intention of marrying her or loving her. I just could not stand anything about him.

Psh and Amanda wasn't any better. She was an idiot. She let him walk all over her.

Interesting storyline but I hated the characters. So I had a hard time not throwing my kindle.

Review: King's Captive

King's Captive King's Captive by Amber A. Bardan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book so, so much. I haven't ever read anything from Amber Bardan but I will be reading more of her books.

It was not at all what I was expecting and because of that I feel like it's better for people to go in blind. So I'm not really going to write a full review.

I really loved the characters. I loved how Sarah handled being held captive. I feel like it's exactly what I would have done.. She was strong with out violence and she was just funny without trying. And freaking hell Julius. He just jumped to the top of my book boyfriend list. He was perfection and heartbreaking and just yummy :)

If you like your romances with a little bit of edge and one hell of a story line, PICK THIS UP! It's the best book I have read in 2017. It's that good.

Review: Falling Into Bed with a Duke

Falling Into Bed with a Duke Falling Into Bed with a Duke by Lorraine Heath
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I hate Ashe. So so so much. I can not believe what he said to Minerva when she confronted him about his finances. My mind is freaking blown. I would have murdered him for threatening me. But thats just me.

This book wasn't terrible.. It wasn't good either. I almost stopped listening to the book when I found out that Ashe needs money and that he starts to court Minerva for her dowry. I am not really sure why I finished it. I was mad the whole time. And honestly I didn't really like Minerva all that much either. She gets a few compliments from a handsome man and she's a puddle. Thats just annoying.

I really don't understand how Minerva forgave him. I don't understand how you could ever forgive someone who deceived you. If the book was told just from Minerva's POV I might be able to see how she could fall for his courtship. But the problem is that we get Ashe's POV and he is a total ass. He goes after her knowing that she wants love and knowing that she has been hurt by numerous fortune hunters. I can't get over how much I hate him. I don't remember the last time I hated a character so much.

Ashe goes and talks to one of his friends about what's going on and his friend says no big deal, go find another dowry and this is what that asshole says.
"I just need to find another dowry. It's just disappointing is all. After all the effort I put into the courtship and gaining her willingness." --- He literally freaking says this. WTF is wrong with him.

And the way he fixes it? pshh. Not good enough. Lorraine Heath's books are always hit or miss with me. This one is absolutely a miss.

Review: Fire In His Blood: A Post-Apocalyptic Dragon Romance

Fire In His Blood: A Post-Apocalyptic Dragon Romance Fire In His Blood: A Post-Apocalyptic Dragon Romance by Ruby Dixon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I have mixed feelings about this book. I absolutely loved the world building and I loved, LOVED Kael(the dragon) but I HATED Claudia. She was the worst. She ran into situations with out thinking. I understand that she had a sister to worry about.. but she freaking ratted out her dragon. WHY? why did she do this?? She told the mayor (the guy who made her dragon bate, kidnapped her sister, had men shoot bullets at her) all the secrets of the dragons. She told him everything. My mind was blown. I just wanted to punch her in her stupid face. The dragon did all the things for her. Literally the guy did everything to make her happy and when she said no, he backed off immediately, no matter how far they already were into sexual activities. I don't know a lot of human men that are able to do that and the dragon.. the enemy.. does it without pause.

I was just frustrated by Claudia the whole book. I understand that you can't just give yourself away to a dragon but when that dragon does so much for you and makes you feel safe.. why wouldn't you let him continue to do those things?? And Kael was so damn sweet. I loved him so much.

I'll be reading the next book for sure. Hopefully Sasha isn't as bad as Claudia!

Review: Devil in Winter

Devil in Winter Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh St. Vincent. I was prepared to hate you after what you did to Lillian in the last book but you made me fall in love with you despite that. And Evie: Who knew she had it in her to be bold? Not me. I was not looking forward to her book at all. Even with the male being St. Vincent. I still wasn't excited about it. She just seemed so boring. But she freaking proved me wrong. I loved her!

Lillian is still my favorite wallflower but Evie is a close second. I won't say that St. Vincent is my favorite of the males because well Westcliff has that honor. But St. Vincent proved himself to be a good guy. I really don't know how someone can go from kidnapping a woman and threatening to rape her to the guy he was in this book but whatever. He was extremely sweet to Evie... even in the beginning. Yes he said a bunch of rude and inappropriate things to her but all of his actions were of a kind, caring man. So I was a little confused by that but eventually I just got over it and enjoyed the story. I kind of had to separate the St. Vincent from Lillian's book because he just wasn't that man. Not really.

Also one more thing. Evie is Ivo Jenner's daughter... How did I not put that together by now. I have searched Lisa Kleypas back log of books and I can not find a book about Ivo Jenner. If it's out there will someone please let me know. I have been so curious about him since I read Dreaming of You. We find out a lot about him in this book I guess but I just wish there was a book for him. It's extremely sad the way everything ends for him though. So maybe I don't want his book..

As always Lisa Kleypas wrote one hell of a book. I am looking forward to the next one in this series. Mainly because I want to go back and re-read the hathaway books now that I know more about Cam!

So I have been blogging my book reviews for about a year.  I have just been doing it under a personal blog.  Now that I am a stay at home mom, I have decided that I wanted to try to make more out of my blog.  So I changed the name and have all the social media sites to go along with it and I will be trying to post reviews more consistently.  I will be slowly posting my archive reviews from my old blog and I will defiantly be writing reviews for the books I am currently reading.  I will also be working on making everything look better :)  

Please follow me on here and on all my social media sites!!  I'll put the links here and hopefully there will be links on my sidebar as well.  

Thank you everyone for the support!!  Please stick with me.  It will be a slow process but I am beyond excited to start this chapter in my life!

Review: Crystal Storm

Crystal Storm Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

eeeepp... I really need some conclusions. I hate all the back and forth of this series. one minute a character is good and then they are bad and vise versa. I just want the bad people to stay bad and the good to stay good. Also I want Cleo and Magnas to just agree to be in love and not fight each other on it the whole damn time.

This book was exciting and the pace was fast but I was still annoyed by it. I am ready for the final book. I am ready for the conclusions and the end of the story. I feel like it has gone on long enough. I need the story to move forward.

Don't get me wrong, I loved this book. I really did. I loved Cleo and Magnus. I still hate Lucia... even tho she was kind of good in this book? I still don't really understand all the back and forth with the characters. It gets confusing. But I did enjoy the story and I am excited for the next book.

Review: Twisted Perfection

Twisted Perfection Twisted Perfection by Abbi Glines
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love Abbi Glines. I love Blair and Rush. I have had this book for years and I have just been putting it off because I honestly couldn't move on from Blair and Rush. They are one of my favorite couples. But I decided to get over it and move on in the series and I can not decide how to feel about it.

Let me start of by saying that Woods is a total dick. Yeah that's right. I wanted Blair to end up with him when Rush was all douch-y because I thought he was like the perfect guy. But after reading this book I no longer think that. He uses Della. He sees a young girl who can't pump her own gas and he thinks, "God I need this distraction. I have to marry someone I hate so I need to fuck this hot girl so I have the memories." No he didn't say that exact thing but it was close to what his thoughts were. So I hated him then. Okay so Della leaves but then comes back. Again Woods fucks her at a party and then tells her that he plans on proposing to someone else the next night.. I mean REALLY?! I would have ripped his manly bits off. But hey that's just me.

And don't freaking get me started on Della. Heaven help us all she was terrible. She was okay with the one night stand.. okay whatever people do that shit all the time. Then she moves on and sleeps with her boss after a couple dates. Turns out he's married.. but she had no way of knowing that, I guess. So she goes back and like the second day she is back in Rosemary she sleeps with Woods again.. She is coming off as kind of slutty for someone who has been sheltered her whole life. But I can deal with slutty females, you do you girl. What I can't tolerate is the fact that Della was sad that Woods was sad about being forced to marry someone he hated. Uh bitch please. He had a choice. He didn't have to do anything. She let him use that excuse. I can not explain how unattractive Woods was to me in this book. He was not a man at all. I mean eventually he did the right thing but to go along with it at all is just unattractive.

I know Della has some serious, serious issues but I still just did not like her at all and I really didn't like Woods either. Which is just sad because I loved him in the first couple books of the Rosemary series.

Will I read on? Eventually yes. I wish that Della and Woods' story was over though and that the next one was about another couple. But oh well. I'm being generous with 3 stars. I'd say it's really about 2.2 stars.

Review: Dreaming of You

Dreaming of You Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So I kind of loved this book. Derek had a terrible past that made him kind of a messed up adult. BUT that all changed when Sara killed a man to save him. He was drawn to her like he has never been drawn to a woman before. But he is still who he is and he still pushes her away. A lot of messed up situations put them back together and it's magical. I absolutely loved Derek Craven. He was the best husband ever. He adored Sara with everything he had. He couldn't tell her he loved her but honestly he didn't have to. It was obvious to everyone and isn't that the best kind of love? I think so. Words mean nothing if your actions say the opposite. A man can say he loves you a million times but then go and cheat. Or a man can never say he loves you and worship the ground you walk on. Which man do you want? Derek Craven, that's who.

I gave the book 4 stars because I wasn't totally in love with Sara. I think she was a good fit for Derek because she was so open and understanding of everything. But there was just something about her that I didn't like completely. I think it was her "perfection" that bothered me. She had zero flaws. She basically walked on water in everyones opinion. It was annoying. I know if I was constantly in the face of women my husband has slept with I would be at least a little upset but she just let it roll. She almost seemed fake.. at least to me. Again I liked her with Derek so yay for that. She was exactly what he needed to be happy. That's what really matters in the long run.

Also that epilogue.. Derek and his daughter. I seriously wanted to scoop him up and steal him from Sara. I am totally in love with him.
