Hero in Waiting by Shelby Flynn- review

Hero in Waiting by Shelby Flynn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a fast reading one, it’s romantic and has a different story than the romances I usually read.
The story is about Avery. She is a rising star going on a tour with her friend/manager ‘Parker’ and her band, a strom struck and they got caught in the strong current of a creek, luckely a cowboy name Jackson rescued them and thats how our protagonists met, Avery just wants to be famous and sing her heart out, and
Jackson is an ordinary man he isn’t a hero or special, but he became special and a hero to Avery.
The romance is one featuring the characters’ getting closer and falling in love in a relaxed environment, this romance is one where you can let your mind roam free and chill, there is no drama and the supporting characters aren’t there for big plot meaning, they are not badly written, although I disliked one of the band member.

Tough Justice by Tee’o Fallon-review

What a book! WOW.
This book has everything that I need to satisfy my reading passion romance, crime, suspense and HEA.

A story is about Tori, a doctor in ER and Deck, a DEA agent. They met in the Hospital where Tori works and it was hate at first sight. He hates doctors, she hates DEA. There are always drug dealers on the streets but this time one particular dealer sells the most deadly drug called “gray death” and no one knows him. Day after day Deck and his colleagues are a step closer to that man, but it seems he is always a step ahead.

The story is interesting and adventurous. It felt like I was watching a movie or like I was in the story itself.
The characters are so alive and real that was easy to relate with them.
Tori is strong and independent woman, who lives for her job. She doesn’t have time for dating or entertainment. The only thing that she want and can care of are her terrariums.
Deck is alfa male type character with muscular body, he is quite tough but a very nice person when you get to know him.

The only thing that was sort of offshooting for me was that at the start the similarity of the names made me feel confused as to who was who, but later I remember the names of the characters and it’s comprihendable.

I am smoke by Henry Herz- children’s book review

I am smoke is book about as the title says smoke. Smoke is a “character” who is telling the story in educational manner.

I was so excited for this book. I read previous Henry’ s books and I love them because they are wonderfully told with educational messages.

The book is for young readers and it offers science, history and global cultural learnings about the smoke. The book is telling the nonfictional story by pictures with little explainations, but in the end there are two or three pages with detailed study about the smoke.

I am smoke is the book that shows very powerful message and I highly recommend it.

The Tear of Tybaleth by A.R. Silverberry – review

Title: The Tear of Tybaleth

Author: A.R. Silverberry

Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Romance

Pages: 294 (I’ve read Kindle edition)

Buy the book here: Amazon BookDepository


The Tear of Tybaleth is a second installment of the Chronicles of Purpura written by A.R. Silverberry. The book is fantasy, smart adventure with romantic elements. That kind of adventure which includes fight to safe the world of an evil ruler.

Briar must be invisible in her home because her father doesn’t like her presence. When she was born he told the midwife to throw his daughter in the well. Briar became like a bird in the same time reckless and free. Her free days are finished with an appearance of one servant who have one job to keep Briar closed and obedient. Things shift in exited when Vince and his family come in the Briar’s house.

I love Briar how she developed from girl into a woman, how she learn to fight and turn out what she really is. She is likable heroine, not timid, naïve, she understands the risks that come with her reckless and frivolous adventure not obeying to her father and the servant.

“It’s my fault,” he said.” I begged Miss Briar to take me into the hills. If anyone should be punished, it’s me. She wanted to come home sooner. But I couldn’t tear myself away from the trees and meadows. It was so beautiful.”

Vince is a great character. He teaches Briar to fight and does many other things. I like how he protects her from punishment.

“Waiting was unnecessary. He would find her, would never leave her unguarded for long.”

The Tear of Tybaleth deals with inequality in one patriarchal home, a narcisstic father and family issues. This book is to read at every age, during each year of life.

Mom Rules by Hilary Grossman-review

In this story it is pretty easy to relate to the main character, in this case Donna, if you (the reader) had similar experiences and out grew them or just left them in the past. Donna is being manipulated by “friends” and horribly misunderstood, that is quite frustrating and annoying. I think Donna is a part of every human being, my reason being that I think we all have been manipulated and/or misunderstood at least once in our lives. The character Donna is a overall passive character, helpful, generous and in general a loveable character, she’s the type of person we need in our lives.

“The woman standing before me yelling was supposed to be my friend, my best friends . how dare she stand here and toss out lies about me in front of half the town!”

This reminds me while I was reading Jackie and Claire’s story I always thought there was more to this story, an outer picture to the one we are seeing play out in front of us, back to the story, Donna falls in a bottomless, soundless and colorless ocean from all the betrayals, then she proceeds to enact actions that she most likely regretted.

“I hated how I always felt insecure around her, but I did.”

“I swallowed back tears. I wished my someone would have had this conversation with me when I was a child. If she did, I probably would have escaped so much hurt and pain over the years.”

Mom Rules (the newest addition) is the 4th book to this series. The first book by Hilary Grossman of this series is “Go, on girl” the book was originally published on 15th August 2018 “Go, on girl” revolves around the character Sydney Clayton and his day-to-day life. The second addition to the series is    “Mom Genes” this book talks about the character known as Claire, this story was originally released on March 7th 2020 and finally the third addition to this series is called “Mom Boss” which first aired October 12th 2020, this addition revolves around the character Jackie and her personal and work life.

When I first heard that there will be a 4th addition to this series, known as “Mom Rules”, I had myself wondering how this book would be any interesting since I already know how the story goes from all the other books, but I decided to give it a read and I’m glad I did so, this book is my personal favorite from the series. Donna’s perspective is certainly an interesting one, the plot of the story really got me immersed into the book, maybe because I relate to the main character, but never the less the book exceeded my expectations.

“I don’t want my daughter to be satisfied with the status quo. I want her to want and have more out of life than what she has now.”

“I usually felt shy in other peoples homes typically I would rather die of thirst than open someone’s fridge and grab a bottle of water.”

“People are the same wherever you go.”

I recommend this book to everyone who likes family friendly, drama, comedy and psychological books, and I highly recommend this book to those who went through bullying and/or backstabbing in the past.

Song of The Nile by Hannah Fielding- review

The new release of the author Hannah Fielding “Song of The Nile” is a great book like her previous books, which I enjoy reading.


In 1946 Aida El Masri returns in her family estate from London where she was working like a nurse and helping to wounded soldiers and the others in WW II. After eight years spending in total dedication she must face with her inner struggle as a results of her father’s tragically death. He was convicted and died in the courtroom in front of her eyes. She was certain that he didn’t do that crime and for that she blames his best friend Kamel Pharaony. When she meets again Phares Pharaony her heart awakes the old feelings for him. She is under pressure. How to clean her father’s name? She is only a woman in a such a men’s world.

The story took place in Egypt and I felt magic spread through it. From the Pyramids, Sphinx, the exceptional water of Nile and the other ancient and modern places which represent Egypt.

“How unlike the world she left behind was this remote universe of sand, water, palm trees and statues; how different from the images of war she had witnessed, how wonderfully peaceful and removed from reality!”

“the high steps to the platform, the young woman caught her breath. Cairo! The bustle, confusion, the shouting of porters, the babble of Arabic…After the slow pace of the countryside the noise was music to her eager ears.”

Hannah Fielding writes stories that will sweep you away. Her breathtaking writing features vivid scenes pull you into the story and make you feel every moment. The book is very detailed and if you are not for that kind of book ti is not for you.

Aida is the most lovable character in the story. She is kind, persistent and confused by her feelings because of her father’s death. Phares is strong, attractive, as a doctor he is a good catch, he is wealthy and likable character too.

“Aida sighed and sipped her cup of strong coffee, lost for a moment in a chaos of conflicting thoughts… There were emotions which she had to understand…”

This book blow me away and make me feel it with my heart and soul. It is profoundly beautiful and unpredictable that I highly recommend it. In the end I have feeling that I had journey through Egypt although I never visited it.

Layla by Colleen Hoover – review

Leeds feels so hollow inside. He is playing a bas gitar but all he wants is to make his own music. His band playing on one wedding in the middle of nowhere. A girl is dancing. Later they properly meet and he is falling for her. Leeds is mesmerized by the girl and her awful dancing. After that night they are inseparable. They live in Leeds house as a couple. Everything is going fine, their love grows, Layla encourages him to create his own music. He became little bit famous on social media. But one picture makes mess of their lives. They get shot. Layla is injuried and spends time in the hospital. After that she is not the same.

Leeds takes her where everything starts in the Breakfast and bed to refresh her memory and build their love and life again. Leeds feels that something is wrong Layla is not the same. He is trying to make it up to her. Instead he is finding that they aren’t alone in the B&B there is Willow too.

I was struggling with this book especially in the middle trying to figure it out. It’s good story but difficult to relate with it, because I am use to Colleen’s romances.

When the end of the story comming closer mekes me thinking ” please, Colleen, be gentle, don’t mess with my brain like you did with Verity”. She didn’t. I like the end a lot.

Layla was very pleasant character I related with her. She was gentle, truthful and docent and admirable quality that I respect her.

In some parts of the book I find myself not understanding Leeds, but he truly meant well, in the end everything became clear to me. It was sweet how he tried to be the best man for Layla.

If you looking for a paranormal romance with good message than definitely this Layla.


Unveiling by Erin Mc Luckie Moya -review

Reya discovers that she is half angel half shifter. They take her and drag her in a basecamp away from everything she knows. She is confused but for short time she repairs. Two realms want her in their camp to training her. Chase is pure fae and he is her trainer officially. He guided her to find her abilities and her powers.

The story of Reya half angel half shifter and discovery of her powers is the story for all ages. The actions take place in the basecamp and in the realms. I like how the story flows. It’s well written book the combination of magical powers, a touch of romance and a mystery of hidden powers and identities. The book does leave reader with some questions and places to go in the next bookin the series.

Reya is an interesting character with all her glory and in the same place her modesty. I like her and her reactions to discover abilities and skills.

Chase is magnetic and in the first place misterious, but then he is wonderful. I like how they interact with easiness.

I recommend this book for all who like paranormal genre.

Mom boss by Hilary Grossman- review

Jackie is newbie in Forest River and she does the best her daughter be accepted and treat equally in her school. When she tries she is been blocked by Pamela the PTA. But Jackie doesn’t know how to stop.

Jackie is strong and gets things in her hands. She is real boss like the title says. I like how she handles with the situations and stands up for everyone and everything that is matters.

The book is about motherhood and how mothers should be involved in their children’s schooling. In this crazy time when everyone rush parenting is little bit put aside or “just for home” like teachers take care of our children in school. But the parenting is full time job. Jackie knows that and is standing for every child in the Forest River school. Interesting is that this is the third book in this series but the things went before Jackie becomes PTA. Now I get it clearly about the situation before.

I consider this book and whole series interesting and entertaining. There are lots of interactions between the characters, many clever discussions and a lot of love.

The first book in the series Go on, girl is about Sydney, the second one Mom Genes is from the Claire point of view, this one is from Jackie’s point of view.

Hooked On You by Cathryn Fox- review





Title: Hooked On You

Author: Cathryn Fox

Genre: Romance

Pages: 318



My review:

Kira is a mathematician who is working on her theorem. She drove across the country from British Columbia to Nova Scotia to settle her grandmother’s estate actually to sell her B&B. On her first day in the small town Lunenburg, she was run by a crazy horse and save by Nate, a hot lobster fisherman. She discovers that in Gram’s B&B live Nate, Sam, Jason, Cody, and Izzy. In the first place, Kira is not comfortable living under the same roof with strangers but she uses to them be around very quickly and they became like family to her. She is introverted and inexperienced. Nate is more than a lobster fisherman. Could they pass the differences and follow their attraction?

Hooked on You is the first book that I read from this author and I like it. I felt joy from the first page. The book is focused on Kira and Nate and both of them tell the story from their point of view. The story is believable I enjoy reding it but the most likable is the setting. I adore Lunenburg not because is a small town but because it is near the ocean.

Kira is sweet and insecure near a man especially near Nate because she feels an attraction. I like her, but I didn’t understand why she didn’t spend more time with her beloved grandmother. I feel the presence of the Gram even she isn’t physically present in the story. All of Kira’s memories and her regret is around. I like the others too.

I recommend this book to everyone who likes romance and small-town settings.

Novel Information

Hooked On You

by Cathryn Fox
Publication Date: April 27, 2020
Genres: Entangled: Amara, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy


“Hooked on You is a sweet treat read that will give you all the good feels!” – USA Today and WSJ bestselling author Avery Flynn

I’m a bookworm, a mathematician, not the kind of girl a hot lobster fisherman would notice.

Until he did.

I’m not in small town Nova Scotia to hook up. I’m here to settle my grandmother’s estate and sell the B&B, which I soon discover has been overrun with seasonal fisherman and operated on the honor system. The hard-core fishing folks become an instant family––the one I never had. Then there’s the blind pet cow, who has a crush on my hot fisherman, Nate. Okay, technically he’s not mine. I have no desire to get reeled in.

Until I do.

Soon, the little town grows on me, and the fisherman? It’s not long until I take the bait and we’re playing house at the B&B. Things are looking up.

Until they aren’t.

Rumors about a new plant and jobs being in jeopardy start swirling around town like a nor’easter, and all the signs point to my guy being behind the scandal. Should I give him enough line to play it out and learn his true intentions, or cut and run before I’m hooked?
