Review: Darkest Night by Tara Thomas

Posted 2 March, 2018 by Amy in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

I love romantic suspense novels. I have also enjoyed novels of a different genre by Tara Thomas under a different pen name. Sadly, while I did love the Benedict brothers and Tilly Brock, I did not enjoy Darkest Night as much as I hoped to. Overall, I thought Darkest Night simply had too many elements leaving it feeling a bit underdeveloped. There was Tilly and Keaton’s second chance romance. There was the mystery behind the embezzlement case that separated Tilly and Keaton as teens. There was Tilly’s ex-best friend that was scheming to be the future Mrs. Keaton Benedict. There were more family secrets, people getting falsely accused and arrested, dead bodies, and a mysterious man determined to bring down Benedict Industries. As a reader, it was a difficult story for me to follow and get into. (The formatting of the eARC also did not help.) With all of the different things going on plot-wise and […]

Review: Love Me By Christmas by Jaci Burton

Note: I received this book for free from  Sullivan and Partners. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I’m not a huge Christmas fanatic or anything, but I do LOVE Christmas themed romance novels. I don’t know what it is about Christmas that makes everything seem a bit more magical. When I was asked if I’d like to read an eARC of Love Me By Christmas by Jaci Burton, I jumped on it. Overall, I enjoyed reading Love Me By Christmas. It was a cute, quick read featuring lovely characters. My favorite was probably Nick and Ellie’s friend. Nick knew what he wanted and was pretty straightforward with Ellie about it when he finally decided to put his feelings out there. Ellie’s friend was also very no nonsense with Ellie in delivering advice. They were fantastic characters for a novella! My only problem was […]

Review: Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr

I FINALLY FINISHED A BOOK, AND IT FEELS SO GOOD! 🙂 Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr was a quick, light-hearted read, which was apparently just what I needed to get out of my terrible reading funk. Blogger Girl was a joy to read and absolutely reminded me why I love to read, blog, and be a part of this community of book lovers. Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr is about Kim, a communications degree holder, legal secretary, and successful chick lit blogger nearing her 10-year high school reunion. In preparing for her reunion, she tries to catch the eye of one of the attorneys and chews on the fact that her high school arch nemesis is about to publish a new chick lit novel that was just pitched to her for review. From the first page of Blogger Girl, I felt a connection with the main character. Perhaps it was […]
