Brilliant premise and the execution was excellent. A dark and engaging YA fantasy, action packed and well-written. The world building was clever and fantastic. Highly recommend.

APP REVIEW:

I absolutely loved this book! The way the author wrote made me feel very connected to the characters. I loved being in both EJ’s and Dylan’s heads. I could especially relate to EJ and her grief. Very emotional. The setting was vivid and I felt like I was there. I have read some of the other Wylder books, and it was cool finding the connections to the other stories. Filled with conflict, passion, and fabulous characters, Return to Wylder is a must read.

APP REVIEW:

A beautiful love story about two damaged but giving people who find each other. The heroine and hero were admirable and interesting, but not without flaws, which is difficult to pull off. The author did a great job with making the setting come alive, and the romance was sweet and passionate. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!

APP REVIEW:

I love football and enjoyed this story about a former football star and the woman he let slip away years earlier. An excellent second-chance romance. It kept me turning pages hoping these two would find their way to their happily ever after. I enjoy a romance with a good conflict, and this one had a great one.

APP REVIEW:
I wasn’t sure what I was getting into with this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The novel is imaginative and humorous. I loved following along with the main character and all his troubles and the situations he found himself in. The talking dog was a great character. If you want a unique and engaging read, check out I Just Wanted a Beer.

APP REVIEW:

Romance, danger, twists, and a Civil War ghost…what more could you want? Precious Treasures is fantastic! The small town setting was so well-developed I could actually see, hear and smell it. The characters were sympathetic and believable and my heart broke for Janie. There were many twists I did not see coming and I couldn’t turn pages fast enough. A truly wonderful read!

APP REVIEW:

I enjoyed this trip into decades past. The ‘commune’ felt so vivid and real. The cast of characters is interesting and well-developed. I was immersed in the story and the details were wonderful. A unique and compelling story.

APP REVIEW:

GREAT Western Romance. The heroine, Felicity, had a tough decision to make, but she courageously did the right thing. The hero, Butch, was not a cookie cutter romance hero, but I loved him. The author did a great job of making them both seem so real and relatable. The Western setting was fantastic. Everything seemed so authentic. The consequences of Felicity’s actions make for an intense ride and created a compelling page-turning experience. Loved it!

APP REVIEW:

I saw where this book won first place in the National Excellence in Storytelling contest and I can see why. Wow. Not only is the premise unique and compelling, the execution is flawless. Allison is painted as a sympathetic character but is by no means helpless. After her experimental eye surgery, Allison is inexplicably able to see dragons. The story becomes so intense and fascinating after that point, that it’s difficult to put down. The author did a great job with the YA ‘voice’ and Allison seemed like a typical teenager, but she ends up having an extraordinary adventure and following her on that adventure was so much fun. Highly recommend.

APP REVIEW:

I was captivated with this book from the opening and it kept my interest throughout. Phil is a great character who suffers some unfortunate events and then decides to leave town to get away from the fallout. When he picks up a hitchhiker in Oklahoma (where I live, so I was especially interested in the setting), things take some crazy turns. All sorts of twists will keep you guessing until the very end. Truly unique and enjoyable novel!

*********************************************

APP REVIEW:

Love, love the setting, characters, the plot, and…everything. Such a wonderful, sexy, emotional read. It was a unique and refreshing change that the heroine was the one who rescued the hero. She was a strong, smart, capable woman. Loved the hero as well…he was sexy and funny and kind. They were both fantastic characters. The writing was engaging and vivid. Excellent book!

APP REVIEW:

Yikes…a delightfully dark and frightening tale of wicked creatures–demons and shapeshifters, doesn’t get much scarier than that–and a team of hunters who are trying to stop them. The team members have issues of their own they’re dealing with, but they are strong enough to rise above. I have read the other books in this series and each one is unique and spooky and imaginitive. I really admire the author’s creativity and his penchant for the dark side.

A fantastic, intense, suspenseful novel with the added bonus of being set in Oklahoma. The characters and setting came alive. I loved Phoebe and despised Jack. The author made them seem so real that I actually experienced an emotional reaction. The Native American culture and mysticism was beautifully woven into the story. Just an overall great and compelling read.

Oh my gosh. What a blast from the past. I loved the era this was set in. So much going on in the 60s and 70s and the author did a great job of taking me back to that time. Paul is a sympathetic character and a great protagonist, but he is not without flaws. Aurora is an awesome heroine. She’s strong and admirable and I love the way the relationship between her and Paul unfolds. This story is sad at times, but also inspiring. I would highly recommend.
