Christmas with Family
Christmas with Family
Price: $1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful story for the holidays, November 10, 2015
What a wonderful story for the holidays! When Symone's brother-in-law is critically injured and her sister has to fly to Germany just before Christmas to be at his side, Symone volunteers to look after her 4 year old niece, Rachel. Symone's Christmas with family isn't what she expected, especially when her brother-in-law's hunky friend, a former soldier named Blake shows up to help. Rachel is tired of spending time with Mr. Wrong, but is Blake Mr. Right? Blake wants what his friend has--a family, but his ex wasn't the woman she pretended to be, and Symone is too tempting for him to trust his instincts. Or is it possible she's the real deal? This short story is packed with well developed characters with goals and motivations that make perfect sense. It was like reading the script of a Hallmark Channel movie.

A License to Heal: Random Memories of an ER Doctor

3.0 out of 5 stars Would have given this book 4 stars if not for the editing, September 29, 2015
If you've ever worked in a hospital, ER, or with EMS, you'll be nodding along as you read Dr. Bentley's accounts of becoming a doctor and then working as an ED/ER physician. And if you've never worked in the medical field but have been frustrated by ER wait times, this book will give you a keen insight as to why ER's have become so overcrowded and why those wait times are so long. The book reads like most memoirs, written in first person, but Dr. Bentley adds a personal touch to the stories that draw the reader in, making them feel as if Dr. Bentley is sharing his "war" stories over coffee. The one downside was with the editing. I hope he did not pay for an editing service because at one point in the book, the word "cliche" was actually spelled "clic***", and the editor didn't even catch it! Despite that, I enjoyed the stories within the book a great deal. Some made me laugh, some made me cry, and some made me angry. Having worked with this doctor before, I knew he had a kind heart, but the book really emphasizes his compassion. Which brings me to one other editing issue. Dr. Bentley used the word x-ray technician (a severely out-dated term) instead of x-ray technologist, several times, but since he admitted to being a dinosaur, it's an understandable mistake. I still use the term ER instead of ED because I too am fast becoming a dinosaur. Dr. Bentley also delved into issues with the VA and the affordable health care act, letting his views be known without getting political, and quite frankly, I think he hit the nail on the head. You can't run health care as you would a fortune 500 company and expect it to remain affordable. A really good read and had it not been for the editing issues, I would have given this book 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Short Read That's Big on Story, September 24, 2015
A short fun read about a smart but clumsy New Yorker who is posing as her best friend while in Paris when she meets the man of her dreams. There's romance, humor, friendship, and some family drama rolled into a quick read that reads like a longer book. Very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Really Good Science Fiction Romance with an Eco-Twist, July 24, 2015
This review is from: Alien Embrace (Kindle Edition)
Ms. Steele combines science fiction, romance, and her usual eco-twist to this story of a visitor from another world who comes to Earth to save her species from extinction. The opening page drew me in and held my interest until the very end. There were some minor formatting issues that could have been my reader rather than the actual book, but the story was so good it didn't stop me from loving this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Installment That Left me Wanting More, July 8, 2015
A nail biter from beginning to end. This short installment in the Deadly Sins series reunites all my favorite angels and demons in a book that bridges the story line together in what I can only hope is going to be an awesome and satisfying conclusion to this series. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because the reader has to wait for the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars and this was like a little appetizer for Taylor's meatier stories, April 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've read several books in the Camerons of Tide's Way Series, and this was like a little appetizer for Taylor's meatier stories. Short but sweet, and it made me wish small NC towns were all like the fictional town of Tide's Way.


Lovers Lane: Free Romantic Suspense (Scandal Mysteries Book 1)
Lovers Lane: Free Romantic Suspense (Scandal Mysteries Book 1)
Price: $0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars while Roxy's pathetic mother just makes you want to slap some sense ..., February 21, 2015
Short but compelling. In just over 57 pages, Bear draws you into Roxie's life and has you rooting for her and Nate to find the killer and their way into each other's arms, while Roxy's pathetic mother just makes you want to slap some sense into her. Then there's Roxy's friend. Oh, how I hope she gets her own story.

Other than being shorter than I'd like, this is a good, compelling suspense, and I definitely will be looking forward to reading the second book in this serial romantic suspense.

This review is from: A Fall of Silver (Kindle Edition)
In most vampire romances, vampires are either misunderstood heroes or evil villains, but Ms. Corwin puts an unusual twist on her vampire tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There are lots of twists and turns in this one with a dramatic ending I never saw coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Three is as good if not better as the two previous books in this series., February 13, 2015
Ms. Steels' third book in her post apocalyptic series reunites old characters while introducing new ones in a story that will leave you on the edge of your seat and wanting more long after the last page is turned.

Loving Meg: Volume 2 (The Camerons of Tide's Way)
Price: $6.15

5.0 out of 5 stars (Falling for Zoe) Loving Meg isn't a story of falling in love. It is a story of holding onto that ..., February 13, 2015
I laughed. I cried. And I bit my nails with my stomach tied in knots waiting for Meg to share her fears with Will. Loving Meg is a story of homecoming and faith. It is the story of heartache and triumph, but most of all, it is a story of family. Unlike the first book in The Camerons of Tide's Way Series, (Falling for Zoe) Loving Meg isn't a story of falling in love. It is a story of holding onto that love with all you've got and trying to get past the everyday, the mundane, and the heartaches and temptations that tear at the soul and wear a person down. It is a story of love conquering all, and two people finding their way back to their happily ever after.
