Blog Tour: Review-E.L. Farris’s I Run

Blog Tour: Review-E.L. Farris’s I Run

E.L. Farris’ I Run is an emotional journey as one woman tries to outrun her personal demons from the past and raise a family. As far as characterization, we have good character development. Sally is our main character and she’s married and a mother to three children. She’s been struggling since the accident and it’s easy to like her. There’s some personal trauma that she’s been trying to remember and yet can’t. Then we have her husband William who at times comes off as passive and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around him and what he thinks of Sally. We have a variety of secondary characters who play a vital role including Sally’s mother who is a first grade bitch. Then we have Sally’s friend Beth who has… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Toni Aleo’s Let it be Me + Giveaway

Toni Aleo’s Let it be Me is different from her Assassins series. It’s dark and will leave you physically ill. You might be asking why a three rating.

Book Review: Sylvia Day’s Reflected In You

Book Review: Sylvia Day’s Reflected In You

Reflected In You is the highly anticipated sequel to Sylvia Day’s Bared To You. It is part of a trilogy and book two in the Crossfire series. It can be read as a standalone, if you’re the type not to care for much back story, and if you aren’t interested to see how the series concludes. The Crossfire series will get compared to Fifty Shades of Grey, but I disagree. I believe both series are very different from each other (there is no BDSM references here ) and can be enjoyed by fans of both. This next installment picks up right where we left off at the end of Bared To You. It’s the morning after Cary’s, Eva’s roommate, infamous orgy in the middle of their living room- what a… Read more »
