  • The Brown House on Jan. 25, 2013

    This book grabbed my interest from the very beginning and did not let me out of its grasp until the very end. But still left me wanting more. I was not sure if I was going to like Brylee, the main character, or not. But she tends to grow on you through out the book. Her growing relationship with her neighbor, Ephraim, added just enough romance to the story as well. And Kayla, well... who would not want a friend like Kayla? Want to know why? Then pick up this book and find out for yourself! If you like a book with suspense, just a hint of romance, a haunted house feel, and twists, then "The Brown House" is the book for you. I get freaked out easily, so I did not read this book right before bed! There were some parts that made me jump, but I could not stop reading.
  • Destine; The Watcher's Trilogy Book 1 on Feb. 28, 2013

    I do not normally read religious books, but this book is not like that. Yes, it has Biblical references, but in no way does it force any type of religion on you. The author did a wonderful job writing a book that draws you in from page one, and keeps you hooked to the very end. I could not put it down from the moment I started reading it. I downloaded this book back in August, and I honestly do not know why I waited so long to read it, and I am now kicking myself for that! And highly anticipating the next book in the series. Destine is about Michelle and Cami, best friends since Kindergarten, starting their senior year of high school, promising each other that this year will be different. Throw in a fallen angel and some real twists; not to mention a best friend that turns against Michelle, and you have a book you cannot put down either. Michelle finds out what her destiny is, but is she up for the challenge? Can she save her friendship and Cami? This book will leave you hanging, holding your breath, just waiting to see what happens next…. I promise you will not regret picking this up!
  • Paranormal Days Gone Awry on June 07, 2013

    Let me start off by saying: I love Anthologies! I love reading a compilation of short stories by amazing authors that are either a part of or a spinoff of other stories. Paranormal Days Gone Awry did not leave me disappointed one bit! There are several amazing authors in here, some stories I have heard of, and some I have not, but now I have new books to go check out. Some stories will have you giggling, some will freak you out, others may have you saying “what the heck?!”, but either way, you will be a happy camper.
  • Chasing Invisible on March 27, 2014

    I absolutely love the author’s style of writing. I was easily drawn into the store, and never lost interest throughout the book. Julia is a bookworm at heart, and is perfectly content staying home on the weekends, reading and studying, instead of partying. But her friend Robyn convinces her to go out one night to hear a local band, Spectrum, play. The scene was definitely not Julia’s cup of tea, but she did meet the hot lead singer, Chase. They were both attending the same college, and he was easy on the eyes to say the least. But she is focused on her studies, and turns down his advances. Until one day she caves and lets him take her out. Julia never thought that one date would change her life forever. They quickly fell in love, and Chase is offered a record deal. She stands behind Chase, even though he decides to quit college to pursue his dream. She finishes with school, and they marry shortly thereafter. For a girl who liked to stay out of the spotlight, Julia will have to learn to adjust real quickly. Her every move, with and without Chase, is always being photographed, and they often make headline news as the All-American Couple. They soon welcome a daughter and then a son into the world, but find it is hard to keep the paparazzi away from them, and all the nasty rumors that seem to make its way to the newspapers. Julia and Chase find that being in the spotlight 24/7 is not all that it appears to be. They are forever protecting their children, squashing nasty rumors, and trying to make the marriage work with Chase’s ever busy tour schedule. But all good things must come to an end, and hard choices need to be made. The ending is definitely not what I expected, but it was a nice twist. I greatly enjoyed this book, and look forward to another adult book from this author.
