That Girl by H. J. Bellus

     The time had come to leave. Things at home were too violent and scary.  With only her best friend and the best friend's father knowing, she slipped away to begin a new life.  She knew she'd have to keep moving and changing her name to stay away from her mother.  It was never easy and she knew it would be hard, however, this is how it had to be.  Would she ever settle in one place?

     This book will take your breath away! You've never experienced a love story like this one.  I could put myself in the young girl's shoes and understand why she made the decisions she did.  There comes a time in an abused person's life when they have to stand up and run or take the abuse.  I felt this girl had a good head on her shoulders. After experiencing so much pain, I can't blame her for wanting happiness.  The story is solid and the characters simply amazing.  This is a keeper and one you will read over and over.  Get this one and tell friends to get one too. This subject matter is handled with compassion and caring. You can't ask for more.

     I found no issues in this one. 

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because you'll enjoy this one for years to come.

Mike's Way Back by Amy Gregory

     Mike had the perfect job. He was working in Chicago as a detective. If it hadn't been for his promise to his mother, he'd still be there.  She wanted him home where she could keep an eye on him.  The troubles Mike was dealing with didn't stay behind, they still haunt him.

     The characters are strong and the writing solid in this book.  I enjoyed the basic story very much.  Being able to see the author drag Mike and Taryn out of their shells was terrific.  I was right there with them as the romance grew. You'll enjoy this easy read.

     I did find issues.  The pacing of this book is a little too quick. I can't imagine things happening as quickly as the author said they did.  The other problem is the characters are too perfect. No flaws. Nothing to have you rooting for the couple.  

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the issues stated.

Celestial Blue Skies by Maggie Collins

     Belle Place, Louisiana is a small town. They grow sugar cane as tall as trees there.  Family comes first here.  They look after one another and live by a strict code of conduct.  Check out this family story.

     This is a very deep book.  It delves into the lives of one family in the south.  How they live and work. I found it to be drawn out unnecessarily.  The writing is good and the characters are good.  I found my attention swaying from the story at times because it repeats itself.  This book will make you think.

     I found issues. The book is entirely too long.  It's difficult to stay focused on too.  

     I gave this one 3 cheers out of 5 because of the issues.

The Sanctuary by Arika Stone

     Eve was on sabbatical from her job as an event planner. She was the tops in her field. While taking some down time, she went to Finland. It was the perfect place, she thought, because no one would know her.  She met Val there. An artist in every media, Val captured her attention like no other man had.  Val would also expose Eve to things she's never thought of before. Can they survive?

     This book is romantic with just the right amount of hot sex.  That being said, this really could have been divided into two books and been even more interesting.  Dark pleasures seem to be introduced in this book but go far beyond what most in the BDSM world would when introducing someone new. The writing is good and the characters are okay.  You'll like this book after you get into it.

     I did find issues.  The book seems to repeat itself, SO much!  It can be very dry reading if they aren't traveling or there isn't a sex scene involved. In places you have to really work hard to stay engaged.

     I gave this one 3 cheers out of 5 for the issues stated. 

Charm: An Amazing Story of a Little Black Cat by Leyla Atke

     A small black kitten sitting in the middle of the road becomes something loved and cherished.  After cleaning up the kitten it becomes obvious it's not an ordinary kitten. 

     I found this to be a wonderful book. It does make you think about life and your place in it. It will open your heart and your eyes to things you've never thought of before.  I enjoyed this quick read. You will too.

     I found the talking of castration a bit much for some people. 

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the castration.
