Smashwords book reviews by Brenda Burkhamer

  • My Life as an Elton Fan on Feb. 02, 2013

    I have this book in paperback and decided to purchase the epub version to read on my Nook Tablet. I am currently reading it again. My Life as an Elton Fan was an enjoyable and entertaining memoir. The author had some some crazy things happen in his life, and some sad things too. I enjoyed the various sections that talked about Elton's many songs and albums. Throughout the story, the author relates things that were happening in his life to things that were going on in Elton's life at the very same time. This was an easygoing, and at times a very humorous read. I was able to keep up with the storyline, which was great because there was always another twist around the corner. I'm always glad when I find a book that is different from my usual reads. I have to say my favorite part was when Elton actually had words back and forth with the author during one of the concerts. Obviously this guy is a huge fan and Elton John took the time to acknowledge him. How exciting that would be!
  • An Unusual Cupid on Feb. 02, 2013

    This was such a neat, sweet, little read. I don't usually feel compelled to give anything over 3 stars for a short story. But, this was well written, with a unique storyline. I would love to read a full length novel by this author some day!
  • Words on Feb. 05, 2013

    I absolutely loved this short story. I will be looking for more from this author. It was so unique, nothing like I've read before in a love story, much less a short story. Nice & sweet.
  • Black Silk on Feb. 05, 2013

    This was a very easy read, a very simple storyline, and it didn't have much depth. But, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Since I haven't read a book of this genre in many many years, this is my first intro back to anything paranomal/romance. The characters were believable, and nothing happened throughout the story that would make me say "yea right". I'm guessing that Jan Gordon is a new author, and if so, I would eagerly read any new books she writes in the future.
  • 78 Degrees on Feb. 10, 2013

    "78 Degrees" was a great read! The storyline was enjoyable to follow, and characters were easy to relate to. Being a screenplay, I found it to be more engaging than the typical story format. The constant challenges the characters faced were told with humor while still holding on to the seriousness of it all. Even though the two main characters lived somewhat seperate lives, they faced similar situations while caring for their elderly parents. Rose's blunt and witty remarks will put a smile on any reader's face. I definitely recommend this one.
