Blog Tour: Review-Diana Baron’s Training Temptation

Blog Tour: Review-Diana Baron’s Training Temptation

Character development is pretty good for it being a novella. I felt like I got to know Caroline and Edward pretty well especially their concerns. Even though Caroline writes Edward off, they actually have a lot more in common than they care to admit. I won’t explain what it is because it is a spoiler. I liked that Edward wasn’t this egotistical jerk and he truly did care about Caroline. I do believe he was attracted to her because he could have any woman he wanted, but her. Caroline isn’t one to back down from a challenge and speaks her mind. She’s courageous and thinks about the estate and the people she’s responsible for. We are introduced to several secondary characters including Edwards’ father, Anton. Anton is interesting and I… Read more »

Summer Lovin’ Day 2: Summer Reads & Cover Re-do

(Organized and hosted by Oh, Chrys!, Tumbling Books, Effortlessly Reading, Love Life Read, Shelf Addiction, Read Sleep Repeat, and Reviewing Wonderland) Today’s participation post is all about MUST have summer reading. These are the books I usually recommend for summer reading because they’ll keep you glued to your seat, although make sure you’re wearing plenty of sunscreen if you’re reading outside!

What better way to experience a Victorian mystery than abroad a ship? It’s my second favorite of his and… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Tara Chevrestt’s Maiden Behind the Mask

Tara Chevrestt’s Maiden Behind the Mask is a fun whimsical read! Even though it’s a novella, characters are drawn out. Catalina Rodriguez is no fainting miss! Realizing what her fate could have been had she been raped she seeks out to defend the innocent and in the process wreaks havoc on the pueblo! Ricardo Garcia isn’t your typical hero. Sure he’s arrogant, but he’s not interested in marriage nor does he go around sleeping around. Even though Catalina forces his hand, he takes it in stride, but doesn’t count on falling in love. Both Catalina and Ricardo are blindsided by love, but it’s a lovely romance. The writing is engaging and it’s a fast paced read. I had a lot of fun with this book, but I do have a… Read more »
