Author: First Book Publish:2016 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.8 Characters: Friday Night Brides (Enchanted Bridal Book 1) First published: May 2nd 2016Rating: 7.84 stars GoodReads:Friday Night Brides Review: The perfect book! It is rare that an author can write so well that you feel as if you are a part of the story, rather than reading it. That is exactly how Friday Night Brides made me feel – as if these women were best friends that I could just pick up the phone and reach out to. I love the depth of each character developed, the personalities so distinct and different. This book made me feel – sad in placed, laugh out loud funny in more places and with warm fuzzies after I finished reading. I can

Author: First Book Publish:2010 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.5 Characters: David’s Angel (David & Polly Book 1) First published: October 17th 2010Rating: 7.54 stars GoodReads:David’s Angel Review: There are parts I really liked and cried, and parts that were just OK. The book is really about the lifestyle when there are kids and death involved. There were very few sex scenes (vanilla or otherwise).

Book Rating:7.6 Characters: Falling for the Prodigal Son (St Caroline Book 1) First published: March 3rd 2013Rating: 7.64 stars GoodReads:Falling for the Prodigal Son Review: As soon as I saw the setting of this book was the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, I knew I had to read it! Growing up in Maryland, this meant summer to me.
Author: First Book Publish:2012 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:6.4 Characters: Resisting Cupid (Return To Cupid, Texas Book 1) First published: March 6th 2012Rating: 6.44 stars GoodReads:Resisting Cupid Review: I was a bit thrown with this one, it is somewhere between “it’s ok” and “I like it”, so 2.5 stars. The story is good, has potential, but I think there are some flaws that make it quite unbelievable. She left her marriage after only 4 months when she was still 18. Her parents let her leave and pursue a career in the big city, but no one really follows up that her high school sweet heart and husband does NOT file for divorce????
Author: First Book Publish:2016 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.3 Characters: Anthem (Notes From Boston Book 1) First published: February 29th 2016Rating: 8.28 stars GoodReads:Anthem Review: I’ve read several novels now that deal with the conflict between homosexuality and religion, but ‘Anthem’ is one of my favorites. Although Christianity is an integral part of both heroes’ lives, this is brought across in an understated way that never veers into preachy or moralistic territory, and without resorting to prose littered with quotes from scripture. Faith might be the overriding theme, but the story touches on a whole host of issues—the importance of being truthful with yourself as we

Book Rating:7.9 Characters: Rekindled Flame (Rekindled Flame Book 1) First published: June 12th 2016Rating: 7.9 stars GoodReads:Rekindled Flame Review: This is one book that I eagerly awaited. I love Andrew Grey’s writing, but as someone that deals with the issues of feeling like not being a whole person due to disability and a “damn chair,” I eagerly awaited seeing how Andrew tackled this issue and gave Richie his HEA. Andrew only gives us HEA’s, but it’s the getting there that’s such a treat and such a journey!
Author: First Book Publish:2015 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:6.8 Characters: Crash Plus Expenses (Crash Plus Expenses Book 1) First published: November 1st 2015Rating: 6.76 stars GoodReads:Crash Plus Expenses Review: I always like this author’s writing. I would have liked to see a bit more after the ending, but their efforts to survive in the wilderness for fun to read about. Definitely a different setting. Maybe Dan got off a little too easy for the lies he told, but still, I enjoyed it.
Author: First Book Publish:2013 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.5 Characters: Misguided Heart (Misguided Book 1) First published: February 21st 2013Rating: 7.48 stars GoodReads:Misguided Heart Review: I really am sorry to say I’d give it 1.5 stars as is. I don’t know if the author had an editor or beta readers, if she didn’t she could really use some. Sadly, there is potential here for a good story, but there were just too many storyline errors for me. It was all over the place is the best way I can describe it. The characters come off as being extremely immature considering they are suppose to be in top spots in the corporate world. Things within the story just didn’t add up. I felt like the
Author: First Book Publish:2009 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:6.8 Characters: Promises: A Novel of Love, Betrayal & Revenge (Mountain Memories Triology Book 1) First published: October 15th 2009Rating: 6.84 stars GoodReads:Promises: A Novel of Love, Betrayal & Revenge Review: PROMISES by E.G. Lewis was certainly not what I was expecting, and in this case that is a good thing! Rather than a fluffy romance, I got a well written novel with substance. Sure, there was romance, but this book is so much more than that. It is the epic journey of a woman who rises above the trials of life to become the person she was meant to be all along. It starts when Mary Jane is just 15, on the eve of her mother’s funeral. From there it takes us through her struggles at home and at colle

Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Glitter and Sparkle (Glitter And Sparkle Book 1) First published: March 17th 2016Rating: 8.12 stars GoodReads:Glitter and Sparkle Review: Really cute. My teenage daughter that is the same age as the main character thought this was a fun book. She could relate to much of what was going on here. I thought that while it had a younger feel to it, it was fun and made me smile. Every girl needs some glitter in her life!
