"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

If you are like me, and havent heared about Lyssa Layne before, this is a perfect book with short stories to start with. You get the feeling of the author and how she writes. I think this is a perfect introduction to an author and it makes you want to read more. I have bought more from Lyssa Layne after finishing this one becase it dragged me in and I really love the way she writes and the way she tells a stories.
I am writing this review a few days before Valentines Day and this is a perfect read before Valentines and on valentines. It is really 5 good love stories that makes your heart melt and ouze of love and happy feelings. What I really enjoyed is that it is romance but they do not have sex everywhere, its is about the main characters, the hero and heroine, and how they deal with their day to day life and all the ups and downs we all know is their. It cant be better according to me that you mix the hero and heroine, their life and romance together. It makes the story deeper and better.
I am so inlove with this book of 5 short stories and I know I will reread them in the future and I will read more from Lyssa Layne because this gave me the feeling of wanting to read more from the author. It is brilliant writing and the stories is so good in so many ways.
Romance, remember, isn't just filled with lust and hot romps in bed (or other places). After the heat, reality sets in and the hero and heroine need to deal with life in all its rawness, just like you and me.
While most endings are as expected - actually a bit more than I expected - one ending is slightly different than what you'd predict and another is a completely shocking surprise. Thank you, Ms Layne, for sticking to your signature unexpected twist even within a dozen or so pages of storyline!
These are deeper looks into the novels, which are nicely showcased at the end of each little tale, and really whet your appetite for more from these characters. Of course you'd understand the progression better if you had read the main novel (or novels, in some cases) but these stories can stand by themselves. Although, there is one in particular which truly left me wanting more because it is such a cliffhanger.
Like Valentine's Day itself, love can take many forms and appearances, sometimes even ones you'd never expect. Lyssa Layne showcases this with her quick reads in Catch My Heart: from good, to unexpected, to wait, what? They're such a great reminder that while romance is real, it still needs to weather life to grow, no matter if you're a character in a book or a true person.
Every one of these stories transport us not only to the lives of these characters but to the possibilities that come with a second chance at love, to losing the one you love, the insecurities that some go through at the thought of being a parent for the first time, the fear that the past will come back to hunt you and it'll repeat itself.
Lisa is an incredibly talented storyteller and I find that her book have soul, a feeling that transport her readers to the magical world her characters are living in. While these are short stories, some of them will get a full novel later on, and I can not wait for that to happen.
Love can leave us frail, full of fear and hopeless through a loss or a break up, but the arrival of a new soul to our lives can also build us back up, and show us how good it is to share dreams of a new life with another person. This is the message I got from these stories, this is the message we should never forget.
