Smashwords book reviews by melissa pollard

  • Leave Her Hanging on Oct. 30, 2013

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I found this book hard to put down. With each page you were engrossed more. The characters were well developed and the storyline flowed. I would recommend this to young and old alike. Look forward to reading more from this author.
  • Love & Darts on Nov. 18, 2013

    I was given this collection in exchange for an honest review. I will begin by saying I am not a big fan of short stories as they always seem to leave you .....hanging. However, this was a great collection of short stories. As a reader you can immerse yourself in the stories, or maybe just use them as a memory recall. I would recommend this to anyone who loves reading!
  • After The Darkness: Episode Two on Nov. 18, 2013

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a fast paced sci-to story. I did find myself a little confused at the beginning. Reading the first book would have probably helped with that. But the confusion did not hinder the enjoyment. At the end of the story I was wanting more. Definitely looking forward to more works from this author.
  • A Day at the Office or The Bastard on Jan. 04, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest honest. This was a short and entertaining read about a woman who wants a day with her husband but gets a day at the office. This was a great short story with a small twist at the end. Looking forward to more from this author.
  • Arlo's Epiphany on Jan. 06, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved the concept - had me thinking along the lines of cats vs dogs, but a grown-up version. There were some typos but it is an easy quick read. The only complaint I have is the author tried hard making sure readers knew the agents were smart by using "big words" a lot. Some of that pulls you away from the story. So while I liked the story I was not drawn in like I want to be as a reader. Overall great story and I will be reading more from this author.
  • After The Darkness: Episode Three on Jan. 26, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a chapter out of a series and it is wonderfully written. It is a slower paced read but you drawn in from the beginning. I can't wait to read more from this series and author.
  • The Littlest Spycat's First Christmas on Feb. 22, 2014

    I was given this short book in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this short story in one setting. It is a cute story about a kitten who wants a pony for Christmas. I love the stories of Arlo and look forward to more from this author.
  • Phantasy on Feb. 26, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I found this book was a little rough at the beginning. I couldn't get into it, but once I did it was an ok story. I found it still a little confusing in areas but for the most part it was an easy read. If you don't follow along in books that are written in form of a play/journal then this would not be for you. But if you give this book a chance don't give up on it - the more you read the more you like it.
  • In Too Deep on March 15, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved this debut novel from beginning to end. I was endeared to Piper and felt like I was a part of the story instead of reading it. The storyline was well thought out and all characters were well developed. I cannot wait to read more from this author.
  • x0 on March 16, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. If you like fantasy with a little dose of reality this is the book for you. It contains factual information on Nigerian heritage. I loved the interactive style this book is written in. When speaking of a song the author would give a link to the song. I can not wait to read more from this author.
  • Becoming "Mom": My Fight Against Infertility on March 19, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I requested this book for my sister-in-law who found out a year ago she cannot conceive. She was devastated as was my brother. I felt useless in the help department and wanted something that might help me understand a little of what they are going through. This book took us on the journey and in the few pages I cried and was amazed at the drive the author had. I am going to share this book with my brother and his wife
  • Bittersweet Rescue on May 01, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I liked the growing relationship between the main characters, but some of the story for me was just too obvious. It was a good read and the author has a great style of writing and would recommend this for a rainy day read.
  • Seducing Chase on May 02, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved the flawless storyline and relatable characters, both were well-developed. It had an amazing story of a PR crisis with just enough hot sex mixed in. I am looking forward to reading more from the author.
  • In Plain Sight, Book Three, Stolen Hearts on May 08, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest honest. I was surprised at how consumed I was. The author has a way of pulling you in and before you realize it you find yourself at the end. The characters were well developed and storyline was flawless. Can't wait to read more from this author.
  • Turning Curse on July 12, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a unique version of the princess and the frog. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline. Hope to see a sequel to this book and will definitely be looking to read more from the author in the future!
  • Yucatan Dead (Kate Jones Thriller #6) on July 16, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a great story with a plausible storyline. The author did a great job creating a strong heroine. The author pulled me in from the beginning and made me feel like I was part of the story. Now to go back and read the previous books in the series :)
  • Goliath Gets Up on July 25, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a funny book. I found myself laughing out loud at times. The problem I have with this book is the first half. It is hard to get through it. But if you stick with it you will be rewarded in the second half.
  • How To Raise A Good Kid on July 25, 2014

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a book filled with cute funny stories. Each one was a lesson learned from his parents. Don't let the title confuse you this is NOT a how-to book. Just a well written collection based on true events.
  • Eclipsed by Shadow: The Legend of the Great Horse (Book 1) on April 24, 2016

    I am not big on books that have historical connotations, but this was a fun read. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series! I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via LibraryThing.
  • The Golden Spark: The Legend of the Great Horse (Book 2) on April 24, 2016

    Loved this sequel as much as the first! Can't wait to start the third installment. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via LibraryThing.
  • Surrender of Trust on April 24, 2016

    This was just an ok read for me. It might appeal to someone else though. I just felt like the story jumped around a little and writer seemed side tracked in areas. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via LibraryThing.
