Book Review: The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

The Bookshop on the Corner 
by Jenny Colgan

“Losing myself in Jenny Colgan’s beautiful pages is the most delicious, comforting, satisfying treat I have had in ages.”—Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author of Summer Secrets

Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion… and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more.

Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile—a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling.

From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there’s plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that’s beginning to feel like home… a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

Nina felt nervous.  In novels, this usually meant that the next person you met was going to try and kill you and the rest of the community was going to cover it up, or everyone would turn into a werewolf.

I looked like the sky had been freshly laundered: a bright TV-studio blue, with fluffy clouds passing across.

I think my van has a death wish... It's trying to kill itself.  Sometimes with me in it, sometimes on its own.  Maybe it's haunted.

I know you're meant to read to them, but he gets really bored and wobbles off or tries to bite something.  Mostly the biting thing... All our books are ripped to shreds... Someone asked me if we had a dog and nearly said yes. 

Nina wasn't exactly sure what they were doing.  It didn't seem to make sense until she started concentrating.  The men were hurling the women around at breakneck speed, and it took her a moment to realize that they were dancing.  It looked absolutely brutal. 

In their buggy, the twins set up a cacophonous roar.  Hattie didn't go anywhere without a halo of crumbs around her, and outside the van was no exception.  'Are you doing story hour?'   Hattie was constantly trying to persuade Nina to do a story session that involved her leaving all the children there, but Nina strenuously refused, muttering 'Health and Safety' as a warding-off spell, to which Hattie had once sadly responded, 'Well, I don't mind if you lose one of them, I've got loads of others,' and then laughed it off a little too shrilly.

My Review:

I would imagine Jenny Colgan would be a fun friend to have; I adore her clever wry humor and witty turn of phrase.  She is wickedly funny and I frequently laugh aloud while reading her comical yet insightful and touching stories.  I could read her books every day and never tire of her word-craft.   In The Bookshop On The Corner, Nina is a painfully shy bookworm, who seeks comfort and escape from the noise and stress of daily life by reading - about anything and everything.  Her peaceful and quiet existence was rudely interrupted when she lost her perfect job as a librarian due to cut backs.  To maintain coexistence with her beloved books and to continue her mission to encourage reading, she bravely strikes out with her own enterprising mobile bookstore from a van she found online, although driving it turns out to be a rather daunting experience for the timid little woman.  I reveled in seeing Nina finding her stride and building in confidence and assertiveness as she ventures out with her van and interacts and quietly touches the lives of others, often filling a deeper need than just a lack of reading material.  The writing was refreshingly clever and breezy; the characters were humorously described and endearingly quirky.  Ms. Colgan has a lovely way with words that is practically visual and highly amusing.  I loved every sentence and felt significantly more than a pinch of regret to have reached the last page.  I received this book for review from HarperCollins and TLC Book Tours.

New Release, Giveaway: Piece by Piece by Elisabeth Staab


Piece by Piece 

by Elisabeth Staab





So I caught my dad in bed with my ex-girlfriend.

My best friend canceled our plans to celebrate my birthday.

Decided to drink away the betrayal.

Made out with a cardboard cutout of a celebrity in front of my new roommates.

Got in a bar fight.

Hooked up with that pretty bartender whose sad smile I’ve secretly been painting pictures of since forever, but she shoved me out the door without a word.

Did I mention the tattoo I don’t exactly remember getting?

And that’s only Saturday.

Now I need to pick up the pieces of my messed-up life.


What do you do when you’ve lived in the same small town your whole life and you feel as if you’ll always be stuck in the same rut, like a piece of busted wagon wheel? Well, maybe you start by hooking up with the first decent guy who walks into your bar.

Maybe once you do, it’s hard to get him out of your head even though you try. And maybe, just maybe, you find out he makes you laugh even more than he makes you want to shout his name.

If you’re me, you don’t even know what to do with a guy like him. A little piece of happiness…that feels downright dangerous.


(Ethan’s POV):

So, whatcha thinking? Time to go?” He rises up on his knees. The way he’s poised, he could either move away or get closer just as easily.

“Oh, I don’t know. I'm not dizzy yet.” Not that I honestly want to get dizzy, but we’ve gotten a little too serious. After Ethan brought me here to have fun, I want to lighten the mood.

With his hands deep in the pockets of his leather jacket, Ethan leans in toward me again. “I thought you didn't want me to make you dizzy.”

I didn't think so. Yet here we are, hot breath puffing in the cold air between us. My lips tingle as he leans close. It’s impossible to forget the way his hands explored me so carefully before. The way his tongue tasted me like he wanted to keep on tasting me forever.

“You remember that first time you kissed me?”

His cheeks turn a deep merlot. “Damn right I do. I remember thinking it was the best kiss I'd ever had.”

Well now. I'm pretty sure if I wasn't sitting on something cold and metal, I'd have just melted right into the playground gravel.

“It was the first time I’d kissed someone because I wanted to, and not because I thought I should.” My chest feels strange when I confess this to him. Like it’s full of butterflies or bees. Lighter but nervous. And oh God, my heart is just bouncing every which way.

As his hair brushes my forehead, his dimple deepens and his eyes get darker. “I’m glad you wanted to kiss me, LeeAnne. I’ve been dying to do it again.”

Maybe…maybe I don’t have to lean on him. Maybe I could just lean in again. Meet those wind-chapped lips halfway. That’d be okay, right?

I wrap my arms around my knees and smile. “I think I've decided I wouldn't mind getting a little dizzy.”

His lips brush mine so fast, I’m left breathless when he jumps from the merry-go-round to give it a spin.

“Hang on tight,” he says.

So I do.

Book Review: Remi's Choice by Amanda Wylde

by Amanda Wylde

Sinfully sexy Travis De Luca came into Remi's life when she was young, inexperienced, and easily dazzled. With his scandalous words and wickedly sexy grins, he possessed a power no one should have over another. He was a foul-mouthed, troublemaking thug to everyone else, but she'd witnessed the vulnerable side he hid so well. After one earth-shattering experience and his declaration of love, her body and soul were hooked.

When Travis is sent away without warning, Kristiano De Luca —his equally sexy cousin—comes into Remi's life as a friend when she needs one most. After years with no word and waiting for Travis to come back, she loses hope, and the friendship she's built with Kris grows into something beautiful that fills the void Travis left behind.

But a surprise return from Travis and one passionate night with him throw all their lives into chaos, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Author's note to reader: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. Remi's Choice is a full-length stand-alone with an HEA. Imagine two heroes with your all time favorite qualities. Hot, bad boy, tattoos, dirty mouths, hot head alpha to a fault and possessive as ALL hell. Both going for the same girl!

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:


Nothing we do will ever be wrong. You hear me?  You’re mine and I’m yours.  That’s how it’s always been and always will be.

Maybe my experience with Remi and how things went down was a life lesson of some sort.  Though I’ve yet to figure out just what the hell I was supposed to learn from it.

My Review:

Remi’s Choice presented me with a conundrum.  Remi was between the proverbial rock and hard place – with no way to avoid anguish and disappointment to several people.  Yes - there was cheating in the book, which I felt conflicted about, and the characters were conflicted about, but the duplicity was oddly understandable.  The writing was tight, emotive, sensual, engrossing, heart squeezing, and angsty.  It was well plotted and written in my favorite form of multiple points of view.  I generally do not enjoy feeling son edge while reading, but I could not put this one down once I started.  Amanda Wylde is a pen name for an established author – I earnestly wish I knew who he/she was, as I want to peruse their previous listings as well.  More, please!

Book Review: Sight Unseen by Barbara Cutrera

Sight Unseen 
by Barbara Cutrera

Marketing consultant Beth Panera thrills at the prospect of working with computer engineer Logan Kirkland to make his new business, Sight Unseen, a success in Sarasota, Florida. When they meet face-to-face and Beth discovers that Logan is blind, she welcomes the opportunity to learn how someone who is visually impaired can live independently and run his own business. Despite her hesitation when it comes to trusting men, she and the sexy, charismatic Logan become fast friends, comfortable with each other and their unique talents and quirks.

 Once the Sight Unseen store opens and their business association ends, they decide to explore their relationship on a much deeper level. Logan’s blindness and society’s preconceived notions about it are only two of many difficulties that they face as a couple. 

Beth comes to think of Logan as her “blind warrior,” a strong, handsome, honorable man she loves in spite of her fear of betrayal. However, it becomes clear that Beth is not the only one in their relationship who has trust issues to resolve. Logan’s greatest challenge lies ahead, and Beth’s blind warrior must fight the greatest battle of his life if he wants to win her heart forever. 

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

I’m dying to know.  Spice up your mother’s world, and tell me if being with a blind man was different than being with a sighted man.

If you did want to try it, we could write books about BDSM and the blind and call them Fifty Shades of Black.

My only choice is to do everything to the best of my ability, so people don’t think I’m worthless because I can’t see!



My Review:

Other than the obvious issues, I have never given much thought to the specific challenges complete blindness from birth would entail.  If I had never viewed color, a sunrise, a delicate flower, how would I ever grasp the totality or feelings these items invoke?  Sight Unseen gave me a bit of perspective regarding this and for that alone, I thank the author for the insight, and then I want to thank her for the entertaining and heart-squeezing tale.  The writing was descriptive and comprehensively detailed, whether it was a visual scene, task, or event.  The storyline was interesting, engaging, and emotive, regardless of what side you stand on the various challenges or social issues presented.  And oh how I adored these characters - I would snap Logan up in a blink.  I am more than curious to see how the family issues and unresolved challenges will evolve and be handled in subsequent books.  I also found a new word for the day, which is something that always excites me, as I love new vocabulary - Blindisms.

Book Review: Lured In by Laura Drewry


by Laura Drewry




The O’Donnell brothers continue to cast their lines and find love at the Buoys—their magnificent Pacific Northwest fishing haven—in this alluring romance from the bestselling author of Off the Hook.

Seasick. That’s how Jessie Todd feels when her best friend and boss, Finn O’Donnell, tells her that the Buoys will be featured on a popular fishing program—which just so happens to be hosted by a guy she used to date. She’s still friendly with her ex, but her new feelings for Finn are making things . . . complicated. His life is out on the sea, and though Jessie works at the resort, her paralyzing phobia of water keeps her on land, where she’s safe. To take a shot with Finn, she’ll need to face her fears—and her innermost desires—head-on.

Finn has been nursing a crush on Jess for a long time, so when she suddenly asks for swimming lessons, he dives right in. Holding her shaking hand as she steps into the ocean makes his heart swell—despite the sinking feeling that she’s just doing it to impress that smarmy TV host. Finn doesn’t trust anyone with his bruised and battered heart, but he’ll be forced to lay it all on the line to keep Jess from being the one that got away.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:


‘You could kiss me again,’ he deadpanned.  ‘Not because I really really want you to or anything like that, but because it’ll show us if that first one was just a one-off.  Or… not.’

‘Beg all you like – I encourage that, actually – but it won’t help.’  His eyes teased her mercilessly, yet somehow he never cracked a smile.  ‘Sure, my balls are gonna be about fifty shade of blue all night, but just because you can knock me to my ass with a kiss or two doesn’t mean you’re gonna get lucky tonight.  I don’t put out that easily… I know it’ll be hard on you,’ he went on, not even trying to hide his grin anymore, ‘since we’re all alone here tonight, and I mean… you obviously want me –‘


Jessie licked the spoon clean and dug in for some more.  ‘Every once in a long while, PMS takes my crazy to a whole new level, and this, my friend, is what it’s like.’ 


My Review:

I know I was late to the party as I only discovered Ms. Drewry’s writing brilliance with Off The Hook, but I became an instant fan of this gifted and talented author.  Lured In was more of the same highly amusing, witty, and clever storytelling.  The characters in this series are memorable, endearingly flawed, vulnerable yet strong, quirky, and just adorable.  I reveled in their witty banter, puns, and clever teasing.  Even their arguments were humorous.  However, the emotions ran in both directions as the story was also heart-squeezing and full of feels that stung my eyes and constricted my throat.  I adore this incredibly well-crafted series and am already looking forward to the next book with “wicked hot promise.”

With that behind her, she now writes contemporary and historical romance novels with characters who aren’t perfect, who aren’t always nice, and who tend to be a little (or a lot) on the sarcastic side.
Born and raised in British Columbia, Laura spent eight years in the Canadian north where she learned important things like how to get your bananas from the grocery store to your car without them freezing and turning black in the -40 temperatures. She now lives back home in southwestern BC with her husband, three sons, a turtle, two crazy dogs, a handful of chickens, and about thirty thousand bees.

My Rating: 

My Review:

I was super excited when I heard this book was coming out. I saw the teasers and I got the wonderful chance to sign up and be one of the first 100 bloggers to read and review this book. I have read a few of K.Websters book, but my favorite so far is still: Dirty Ugly Toy.

Even though I loved this book, I have some conflicting emotions. Now I was sure this book will be dark and twisted for many of Ker Durkey and K.Websters fans.  But I found that for me, this book was not that dark or twisted. It might be the fact that for me, the bar is really high. Even though I want to give examples, I am not going to give out spoilers. I can tell you that I loved the characters and the plot line in this book. In its own way, this book goes down a darker path than most books. It is a book that you would read in one sitting. As soon as I got this book, I jumped in and didn't surface until I was on the last page.

This book ends on a cliffhanger and I am curious about what is going to happen next to these pretty little dollies. What are we going to see next from these authors? I am left with so many questions.

If you want to read a dark book, this is definitely one that you will enjoy. But please read all the warnings. This book may be difficult for some readers.  

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of your seat, angst-filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles...prepare for the unexpected. I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters growing up. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

About K. Webster

When not spending time with her husband of twelve years and two adorable children, she’s active on social media connecting with her readers.

Book Review: Wed by Wednesday by Sarah O'Rourke





Wed by Wednesday

What happens when a naive city girl answers a personal ad to marry a bachelor farmer from the hills of Tennessee? Destiny! Read how Orla and Jethro's story started back in the 1960s...and find out exactly how deliciously naughty these two can be!   This insta-love 50,000-word novel is filled with humor, romance, and just enough erotica to keep you coming back for more. Wed by Wednesday is the prequel to Sarah O’Rourke’s Paradise series, and like all of her books, it can be read as a standalone.

“Listen, chaste kisses are fine for what they are. Quick exchanges of affection. An innocent way to tell somebody they mean something. When you wanna show a woman that she’s what’s lighting the fire in your gut, though… quick and innocent pecks just don’t do the trick. Nah, a man goes dark and dirty for that kind of lesson. He wants his woman wet and hot. And he wants her that way everywhere. Her mouth. Her core. Everywhere.”






 “Thirty- one?” Orla echoed faintly. “He’s thirty-one?” The longer Nellie talked, the less this man sounded like the one she’d been corresponding with for weeks.   Why, her Jethro was sweet and soft-spoken, and certainly not as old as thirty-one. No. Her Jethro was nothing like the animal the older woman was describing.

 “Yes, ma’am.   He surely is. I changed that rascal’s diapers myself,” Nellie announced with a decisive nod, her eyes widening as she apparently noticed the surprise on young Orla’s face. “What?” You mean to say that you didn’t know how old your beau was?”

 “Well, not his exact age. I mean, his letters indicated he was older than me. I just assumed there were only a few years between us,” Orla confided in a strangled whisper. Hells bells! Her future husband had over a whole decade’s experience on her. What in the world about her would attract a worldly, well-off man like him? “Why hasn’t he wed before now then?” she asked without realizing she’d spoken out loud.

 Nellie was quick with an answer to her question, however. “Oh, many a girl around these parts have tried to lasso Jethro’s heart, but that surly demeanor of his runs all decent women right off his scent once they get a whiff of how crabby he is for two-thirds the day.”

 “What’s he doin’ for the other third?” Orla asked shakily.

 “Oh, he’s sleepin’. Collectin’ his strength so he can keep his title as the world’s most boorish bachelor and all such manner of things. Truly, ‘bout the only time I’ve heard him stay civil for more than fifteen minutes is the hour long sermon we all sit through once a week at the church. And maybe once or twice a year when he’s paying his respects at his dear departed momma and daddy’s grave or something such. Otherwise, he’s blunt as a hammer and speaks with a tongue sharper than any knife you’ll ever come across.”

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

He was the most breathtaking man she'd ever seen and even her lady bits wanted to appreciate the view. 

And for the record, men like me like our womenfolk meek, mild and mostly mute.

Life is comprised of moments.   Some are big.  Some small.  But all of them are unique to the person experiencing them. 

Well, the least you could do is introduce her to me!  I can hardly just grope this poor animal's private parts if we don't even know each other.

My Review:

Orla was always a favorite for me in previous Paradise books, and I reveled in reading her story.  But her tale seems to have teased me as I am feeling a strong yen to return to the series and read each one over again.  Sarah O'Rourke never fails to entertain with her particular and unique style of southern humor, clever sass, and delicious steam.  Wed by Wednesday was a fun, quick, sweet, and satisfying read.  I could never tire or ever get enough of this highly amusing and entertaining series.

Empress DJ



 Who is Sarah?   Sarah O’Rourke is actually two besties who live three states apart and write at all hours of the day and night! Born and raised in the Southern United States, they are overly attached to their one-click accounts, can’t make it through the day without copious doses of caffeine, and spend way too much time on the phone with each other.  Between them, they have four children and twenty years of to a super soldier and the other to egomaniac engineer. They hate empty chocolate wrappers and writer’s block, love to talk to readers...and oh, by the way, they write about strong, kick-ass women and hot alpha heroes!

Book Review: Making Choices (Black Shamrocks MC #2) by Kylie Hillman

Making Choices 
(Black Shamrocks MC #2)

by Kylie Hillman

He kills. She heals. In this game called love, how do you choose? Heart or head?

From the outside, it appears that Juliette Patrice has the perfect life. Her career is her number one priority, matched only by her desire to fulfill her parent’s enormous expectations.

Lucas 'Timber' Blake is the Sergeant-At-Arms of the Black Shamrocks MC. A violent man who cares only for his Club and his family, he's wrong for Juliette in every logical way.

Still dealing with the fallout from the explosive events earlier in the year, Lucas is tested further when Juliette is dragged into the middle of the war between rival Clubs. A war that's already had fatal consequences.

Common sense tells her to run. Her emotions compel her to stay. The time has arrived for Juliette to begin MAKING CHOICES.

DISCLAIMER: This book contains depictions of graphic situations and is not suitable for all readers.

My Rating:

My Review:

It very rare for me to hate a character and then grow to love them. In this case, I started off hating JJ - she seemed stuck up. A good girl that walked down the wrong street and ran into the big bad biker. But as the story went on, I noticed there were more sides to this character. She was stubborn and wanted to be the person her parents always wanted her to be. Even though it is impossible to make yourself happy by doing what others wanted.

On the other hand, I loved Timber he was a little ruff around the edges - but I think that is why I loved that character even more. Under a rock-hard shell was a sweet guy who would do anything for those that he loved.

Even though I have noticed a lot of flashbacks in Seizing Control and Making Choices, I do not think that it takes away from the story. If this pattern continues into the other books, I will start to believe that this is the author's style. I usually hate flashbacks and MPOV, but this author makes both of those aspects work. 

This book did not live up to the first book, but you can guarantee that it is just as exciting, dark, and twisted story.
