  • Adopted on Jan. 14, 2011

    It's a simple story with a beautiful message, I loved the message and the idea of the plot. But it could have been developed much more better and the plot had a lot to give more than just three pages. A little editing needed that's it. God bless you, keep reading keep writing! ;)
  • The Clever Detective: Story 1 (A Fairy Tale Romance) on Jan. 14, 2011

    Although I couldn’t get the relation of the title of the story with the story itself, I guess it just justifies the fact that our heroine Stacey Alexander PI is somewhat ‘clever’ in her case solving skills. The story had a bit humor which I really enjoyed and it seems to make a parody out of certain fairy tails which is something I always like. It could have been a bit more developed and stretched out but it was pretty good, romance, humor and fantasy, pretty good mix. Also I liked the author voice; she gives you Stacey talking not Linsey writing how Stacey would talk.
  • Clever is as Clever Does: Story 2 (A Fairy Tale Romance) on Jan. 14, 2011

    Now I loved this title, it really got me interested in the story and I loved the story as well. Much more fairy tale parody (the Grim Brothers probably stirred in their graves!) sweet funny romance and humor. The author seems to have a good thing coming up with romance comedies. There is supposedly said at the end that there is more stories about PI Stacey and HotShot Chad coming up. I’ll definitely be in the look out for them. I wish to see if the writer shows us a little background, I mean, Chad must have a mother right? I would like to see how Stacey gets along with the in-laws as well for Chad, after all he took Stacey out of her normal world to a dream land! Where the heck is her parents saying about this?? Hoping to read more... :)
  • Kate and Ben on Jan. 14, 2011

    Oh My Holy Sugar! That was a very,very touching story packed with so much feeling, I loved it! It really touched me to the point my eyes watered, real talent. Again; I loved it.

    Es una fábula, pero definitivamente fue traducida (probablemente por un programa) del inglés (o algún otro idioma) al español. El problema es que aunque tiene un lindo mensaje guardado, los multiples errores de sintaxis, gramaticales y la mala conjunción de los verbos impiden la apreciación entera de la historia. Dios les bendiga!
  • High School Football – The Temptation (first in the high school series) on Jan. 30, 2011

    The story and the plot are well developed and there is a moment on the story where Justin becomes a real teenager to the reader. I liked that even thought this was a fiction novel the author kept it REAL! In fact, I enjoyed the novel so much because it gave me real stuff not the wacky kablammy annoying view of high school life other YA fiction authors, Hollywood and Disney movie directors give. I definitely recommend High School Football: The Temptation to any age reader. For an adult if might be a trip down to high school years to feel young again and for us young and proud it would be a small oasis to identify -for a little lapse of reading time- with another struggling teenager.
  • Elastic Band on Jan. 30, 2011

    Slightly short, but good since there wasn't much to stretch in the plot. I loved the idea, although I would have enjoyed it far more if I was able to see Alice's point of view when she started flying and what she saw up there in the sky as she went up higher and higher leaving behind her home and her family. Nice, light read.
  • Nashoga: Book 1 of the Redstone Series on Feb. 14, 2011

    Like Paul said, the author managed to capture the emotions of her animal characters better than other authors do with humans! Her descriptions are wonderfully unique. The imagery is one to die for, It made me feel I WAS in the forest Nashoga lived in. Everything was perfectly enraptured and shown to me in the book. I definitely recommend this book. It is a simple and short read, but it doesn't falls into plain and trite it stays as a work of art in all the sense of the words.
  • Historia de un Crimen Perfecto on May 07, 2011

    Tremendo relato de misterio. Me encanto como se va introduciendo el personaje y como desde el momento en que comete el primen crimen, el alma y la mente de Erik comienzan a contaminarse poco a poco hasta que ni el mismo se percata de lo que hace. El ambiente y la atmosfera mantuvieron una excelente armonia hasta llevar al lector a un final realista pero que de todas formas lo deja a uno corto de respiracion.
  • High School Diversity - The Clash (second in the high school series) on Aug. 11, 2011

    Hilarious dialogs, realistic teenage life situations and lovely characters fill the story of a girl who dwells between doing things her way or for once, listen to others and cry for help when it's needed. Easy to follow plot and definitely NOT a waste of time and money. Thumbs Up for Paul Swearingen!
