Smashwords book reviews by Melanie Toye

  • Another Time & Another Place on Aug. 29, 2013

    A story that starts out terrifying but needs to be told to understand how one woman helps a man be saved from his own demons. An interesting take on the power plays employed to find upper status and respect. As well as the fear of losing yourself and everything, when you have already lost everyone. Frightening and gripping scenes that keep you reading till the very end. Wondering each step of the way, what will happen next.
  • The Proposal on March 06, 2014

    I really loved this book. I loved the characters and their intrigue and attraction. I read this book so quickly as I became entertained from the beginning right to the end. This will be an author I will add to my reading list forever. Fun, light, sexy and sweet. Be romanced and feel the love. But never underestimate what will happen next. I loved the characters and I look forward to reading the next book by Lily Zante.
  • The Best is Yet to Come on March 06, 2014

    I loved this story. Meet Fifty Shades of Grey without the erotica! Sexy, romantic and makes you wonder what will happen next. A little disappointed it ended so quickly, but that is what any good author does! Makes you wanting more! Thank you for the light entertainment.
  • Dream Kisses on May 13, 2014

    Brilliant. I loved reading this romance story. It was not old fashioned even though it went into a western feel. It was fresh, exciting, entertaining and had me turning the pages as quick as possible to read more. And now I have finished, I keep replying scenes over in my head. Sad to have finished it, but it is a romance story you will love. I guarantee it. Complete with a hunky male model lead character and a romance writer, will have you wondering ... will their love for each other win over everything else? Read it and you will find out.
  • The Engagement Game (The Kinlans, Book 1) on June 04, 2014

    I love this story and was captured in from the first chapter. I loved the characters and there was so much twists, I was continually drawn in. I read the book very quickly, because I loved every part of it. The characters were great, sexy and intriguing. You are hoping the main character makes the right choice, the choice you want her to make, but there is so much happening you really do not know which choice she will make and perhaps either way, she will be happy. Two men fighting to love her, one crazy, mean, desperate yet loveable best friend and all the other characters imbetween, makes this story a must read!! I just want to read more. I will be reading more from this author for sure. Thank you A. Gardner for writing such an entertaining story.
  • Source; Greed, Power, Revenge, or is it Economic Terrorism? on Jan. 14, 2015

    Wow, I loved the easy to read writing style from beginning to end for this great novel. The main character Tom, who sounds handsome and is focused on his career, goes through many ups and downs throughout the novel, of which many readers will relate to. Tom who is a journalist works with two others to help aid in investigating a bank, when articles are published about the behind the scene dealings by the bank. The story has you second-guessing everyone Tom meets and every move that happens to try and uncover the mystery. A touch of romance, which I always enjoy and intrigue. A great read, which I will rave about.
