My review:

Luna half Spanish half American gets an undercover job to investigate the controversial work of Doctor Rodrigo Rueda de Calderon. She must go in Spain for that, and the doctor isn’t what she expects to be, a young and attractive man. The attraction is vivid between them but could they cross all secrets and finally find true love?

Legacy is the third book of the Andalucian Nights series and is perfectly written like the other two books. Hannah Fielding doesn’t spare words but genuinely gives us in this perfect story which started in Indiscretion, the first book of this series. This is well written and engaging story, which brings my emotions up and down along with Luna and Rodrigo.

Luna is smart and dedicated to work young woman, who is frightened to give her heart. Rodrigo is a half-gypsy, and his reputation isn’t good, but his charm and humor work like a magnet to Luna.

I like how they met and how slowly get to knowing each other playing hot and cold. The settings, beautiful Cadiz on the Spanish coast makes the story to sound more convenient and more romantic. The house on the beach which Luna rents is fascinating, and it fits very well in the picture of Cadiz.

The whole package which includes the story and the characters is unforgettable, and It will stay in my mind long time.

I recommend Legacy for everyone who likes romance in extremely romantic and exotic settings and for everyone who loves intriguing love story twining with secrets.

My review:

Brook Ogden finally recovers from many downs and her life is in great state, especially her love life. She definitely lives with the love of her life and their two fur friends. Sasha and Stu are good, and they have an adorable baby, who everyone in the family loves. The only thing that is not right is her beloved father’s death.

After Brook’s appearance in one show on the local television her self-esteem and her work life goes on the downward path.  The TV hostess is her frenemy, and it seems that she has the unfinished battles with Brook and she is eager to finish those in the show humiliating Brook in front of the public. Everyone needs Brook’s advice and support, but one person can’t be right just giving without getting anything back.

This is the last book in Breakup Doctor series and it so sad that this is the end of the series. I’ve enjoyed reading previous books about Brook Ogden the therapist for the broken hearts, who herself calls breakup doctor, but it seems that this book is the top. The things go up and suddenly down for Brook. I enjoy reading the book I cry and laugh with Brook. When the death took Brook’s father everyone in the family grief in a different way, and that complicate the things, but family stays together.

Brook is even better than I remember it from the previous books. She is a helpful and compassionate character. In previous books she was funny, and I laugh more, but this time her father’s death gives the story more serious approach. It is wonderful how Brook deals with everything after her father’s lost and her issues with the practice Brook’s faith and enthusiasm decreases day by day, but she isn’t alone, and she has the biggest support ever Ben, Sasha, and Stu, even her nephew helps. I felt all her troubles as they are mine.

I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to read chick lit novels with a heartwarming story.

My review:

Lacey was waking from two months coma after a terrifying accident, and she thought that she was sixteen. Her parents looked older that she remembered them. Trying to comfort her they told her the truth that she was eighteen, and they mentioned Derek, her boyfriend, but nothing helped, she didn’t remember anything of it even her boyfriend. Day by day she was discovering that she was a Queen Bitch in her high school and couldn’t remember who Derek was and why she was her girlfriend, considering that he was the most attractive and gorgeous young man.

How she become the most popular girl in the school, how that was possible she got thousands of likes and followers on FB when she was an ordinary girl, unpopular almost invisible girl in an entire city or that was in the past, two years ago.

I had struggled which book to pick up to be my next currently-reading and saw this book in my inbox marked like an arc. After I had read incredibly romantic and the unforgettable book I was a Bitch seemed to me like an ordinary and straightforward YA book, but I was wrong it was much more it was “read at first sight.” This book is intelligent and well plotted filled with many surprises which made me reading till the end. Surprisingly this book is a debut to Emily Ruben. I found her tone dramatic and narrative which was keeping me awake till the early morning hours. The book wrote in the first person, and the story told in Lacey point of view.

Lacey was a strong, very smart girl and fighter. When she discovered that she had partial amnesia kept that in secret from the others, except her parents and her brother and while Lacey is trying to find out who she was, I enjoyed in suspense. Lacey was the character that gave me a reason to read till the end and cared about her.

I recommend this book to everyone who liked After series by Anna Todd and Did I Mention series by Estelle Maskame.

The publisher provided this book, thank you, David.

My rating 5/5(amazing).

Review:

Although her parents thought that Payton is ridiculous and not approve her blogging career, Payton still thinks that she will succeed. Payton is an independent girl who endeavors and wants perfections, whether that be her looking or achievements in her career, even her green tea latte is perfectly chosen to be the perfect drink for her.

One day Payton goes in her usual coffee shop and orders her green tea latte, but she gets coffee which is not her but Brooks’ a perfect Englishman with beautiful brown eyes.

I like this book like all Aven Ellis’s books that I’ve read, because of it with her recognizable calm tone, enthusiastic story line, and sparkle and breathing new character.Yes, breathing because Ellis brings life in her characters they are like breathing, alive persons. I like the light way and like delightful Payton.

Payton is a girl like every girl in the world ambitious, trendsetter, a girl with style. I like how she manage to accomplish all her aspirations.

Brooks is every woman’s dream boyfriend. He knows what he wants and what doesn’t want, he knows how to conquest the girl’s heart.

My review:

After one awkward situation, Chanel is under protection 24/7 by Leon, her bodyguard. Chanel’s father can allow her to get in such a situation and hire Leon to watch her.

I enjoy read this book, because is different in many ways the author’s tone is fresh and calming, the story goes that in the first place I don’t realize that Chanel is blind because the author doesn’t tell that. I love how the story goes and how it ends, how it has an impact on me. I have mixed feelings while I read this book.
Chanel is lovely, sweet young woman in her nineteen she is independent and educated she is a fighter, and she knows what she wants then she grab the chance to get that. Chanel only knows about love no matter what others people do she give back with love.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves good touching story, suspense, and love.

My review:

Luz de Rueda was back in Spain after time spent in England. She came there to write the biography of one of the greatest Spanish artists. Luz met Leandro, young and passionate gypsy on her first days in Cadiz. She felt attracted by Leandro, but she knew that he is forbidden to her. Andreas de Calderon was Luz’s employer mysterious and refined man, but he was almost Leandro’s double.

The author’s vivid descriptions bring more joy in reading. I saw Spain in 1976 glistening and enigmatic although I have never been there.  I read all Hannah Fielding’s books and currently reading Legacy the last one in this series and could tell reading her books is a journey. In this book, I found again her talent to inspirit life in the book, and that is the main reason why I want to read more and more.

Luz was a young woman, innocent and inexperienced who wanted to learn about love and passion. Her life when she stepped in Cadiz was a struggle between last, love and secrets.

Leandro and Andreas were so the same and too different. The similarity in their look didn’t mean similarity in their personality.

The story about those three characters will bring you back in the past with such a picturesque and romantic atmosphere and in the same time awoke the feelings about them.

I recommend Masquerade to everyone who loves a good book, which you could read it in any season and any mood.

My review:

Livy is ordinary twenty and something girl. She wants to be jewelry designer since she graduates it, but she is unemployed and lives in her parents’ house. Livy’s world crashed up when she caught her boyfriend cheating her since then she doesn’t trust men. Every day she plays trivia games with one man.

Landy is a famous hockey player well known for hooking up with a beautiful woman, no dating just hooking up. He is a dream that every woman could want to have, handsome, athletics, flirty that kind of man that Livy should stay away. Could she get away from him?

I enjoy in every single word which Aven Elis writes, this book isn’t exception from that- I love this book!

This book filled with a romantic atmosphere which brings me shiver down my spine and giggle many times as lunatic in the middle of the night. I especially like and giggle on the “computer sex” part LOL that was hilarious. I’m still laughing.

I love how Elis writes and how she brings things from one point to another, from one level to higher level. It makes me think that her book is like knitwear one knit, and another leads to perfection.

The characters are wonderful starting with knowing each other and big sweet romance growing slowly between them. Livy’s sweetness is unbelievable good, and Landon is irresistible and smart. The battle in Livy’s head about him is cute and entertaining. I like how the story between them goes and makes me read till the end.

I recommend this book to everyone who likes well written a romantic story which hooks you up till the end, but when the end comes you will stay with sigh still holding the book or you Kindle in your hand wanting more.

My review:

Brooke and Ben aren’t together, and they try to be friends. She becomes closer and closer with Jake, Ben’s dog. Everything seems good between Ben and Brook’s friendship until Ben finds Pamela, a perfect woman, beautiful, blonde with a career. Brook thinks that Pamela is everything that she isn’t. While Ben and Pamela are on the weekend and while Ben is working Brook is here to care about Jake. There is Stu Brook’s brother and Sasha her best friend still together, but Sasha is hiding something and Brook want to discover what is it. Michele, Brook’s ex-fiancée, is back, and everything gets complicated.
This is the third installment in this series; the first one is The Breakup Doctor, second one Bedside Manners. I love this series because of the author’s style and narrative tone. While I read all three books, I have felt that I read my best friend’s diaries or like I listen how my friend tells me her story. The story is so real and pleasantly said that you don’t have to feel that you read and is easy to connect with characters.
Brook well known as breakup doctor she helps people to continue with their lives after a breakup. But she is in a similar situation, Sasha her best friend has her problems who will help her to get through this. I enjoy reading about Brook like I told you before I feel like I know her very well. She is the bright person who knows how to deal with every kind of situation. Her parents are back together, and I love to read about their dinners or conversations, I like to read about when the family is together because recently I lost my mom (RIP, mommy) and I miss that feeling.
Sasha and Stu are so cute together, and it’s pleasant to read where their relationship goes, their doubts and little issues, especially I like Brook’s intentions to help Sasha to deal with her issue that was hilarious.
I recommend this book to chick lit lovers and to everyone who wants to read well written romantic comedy about love, breakups, family, and friendships.

Kung Fu Kitty Laying Down the Law by Lauri Bortz- review

Title:Kung Fu Kitty Laying Down the Law

Author:Lauri Bortz

Genre: Children’s book

Pages:72 (I was read paperback)

Published: Abaton Book Company; 1st edition (March 3, 2015)

Buying links: Amazon

Kung Fu Kitty called Wu Zhua in previous book set the cat nation free from the Monkey Dynasty, who rules in Monkey Kingdom. Now in this book Wu Zhua learn how is to be independent and lives independent life without slavery and oppression. She is new president of the newfound nation Catland, which is situated inside the borders of former Monkey Kingdom, along the Yellow River in ancient China. The citizens of the Catland must follow these rules:

A cat must be loyal to family

And do his best to keep folk free.

A cat may kill spiders, mice and rats

But never, ever other cats

A cat shouldn’t steal, curse or lie

Or poke his neighbor in the eye…

There are other rules too, I choose first of those rules just to illustrate to you how Wu Zhua imagine her world and nation live in peace.

The story is very captivating and very rich with characters and scenes, which I imagine so easily and in the meantime enjoy in them. My imagination was fueled not just with those incredible great described scenes but with black and white illustrations. These illustrations are made by Michael Gentile very well   with black ink on white paper. Here in Kung Fu Kitty the story of Exodus is retold with animal characters and the main character is cat.

I like how Wu Zhua is described and how she manages to lead her cat nation in independency and emancipation. In her character I see real person not an animal. Lately I have plenty of thought which telling me that animal are smarter than people and that they deserve more care and attention from us. They are pure souls who need care as babies. There in the book they are as humans, they are independent and they talk, look after oneself and manage their own kingdom with rules.

I recommend this book to everyone. This is not just a story for children, but this is the captivating story for all ages, about freedom and bravery.

Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis- review

Title: The Aubrey Rules

Pages: 261( I’ve read Kindle copy)

Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing (August 26, 2015)

My review:

Aubrey is hurry up for a job interview and she falls in front of the very sexy and handsome man. Falling down she pours everything that she has in her bag including her keys. Pouring all things from her bag is not the end of the world, but her tampons are under his leg and that is embarrassing. That is not all, he looks at her a polka-dot Kate Spade notebook where are her treasures, her rules for living. Maybe that is the sign that those rules soon will be broken!

I like that this is first book in hokey player’s series. There will be so interesting light, romance stories. Maybe the critical minded reader will say that is all about one the same topic one man meets one woman, he is hokey player she is beautiful, but it’s not like that, every book from this series has unique story. It’s different how they meet , how the love story goes and there are different obstacles , so this is romance, it’s suppose to make you shiver down your spine and definitely this book does that to me. I love how story goes, how they meet and I was intrigued by their second meeting. I like that how he stood up for her.

There is something in the Aven’s characters, especially female characters. The author builds them in unique way; they are recognizable as her female characters. They are incredibly cute and in the beginning little bit shy and then very strong and passionate, they are kind and helpful, full with respect to the other people. The male characters are very sexy, so they suppose to be sexy, because they are hokey players. Who doesn’t want to read about sexy hokey players!?  All those things that I’ve said about all Aven’s characters I could say about Aubrey and Beckett too.

I like Aubrey’s rules to live by. Those sentences are so cute sometime and so funny sometime and brings the story special atmosphere. She lives by those rules and tries not to break them, but when she comes in certain situation she broke them so easy and it came as funny thing in the story.
