Our Options Have Changed By Julia Kent and Elisa Reed Free!
Our Options Have Changed (On Hold Series) - Julia Kent,Elisa Reed

Having it all is a fantasy, right?

Chloe Browne knows all about fantasy. Fantasy is her job.

And she’s very, very good at what she does.

As director of design for the O Spa chain, a sophisticated women’s club that is trending its way into being the Next Big Thing, Chloe’s ready to take on the world.

One baby at a time.

Her home study’s done, and she’s about to adopt, a thirty-something single mother by choice. Who needs to put her life on hold for the right guy when the right baby is waiting for her?

Besides, talk about fantasy.

The right guy?

Pfft. Right.

And then in walks Nick Grafton, with those commanding sapphire eyes and wavy blonde hair and a sophisticated mouth that only smiles for her.

He’s perfect.

But the last thing Nick wants is to start fresh with a new baby as his college-age kids fly the coop. A single father for more than fifteen years after his wife walked out on her family, Nick finally tastes freedom.

But he likes the taste of Chloe more.

Hold On To Me (Lone Star Lovers #5) by Taylor Holloway
Hold On To Me - Taylor Holloway

 

 

Every woman has a need to find her place in a world intent on brushing her off. Through the eyes of Rosie, Holloway made that need easier to understand. Hold on to Me is first and foremost a tale of empowerment. That's a theme as a woman I can relate to. Rosie is just beginning to find her voice, when others decide to force her to tone it down. There will always be people who try to stop you from living your truth. However, she finds a champion in the most surprising of places. Hold on to Me is a ferocious look at a strong woman with alot to say and the heart to say it.

A Hand to Hold, Grace Given
Amish Fiction: A Hand to Hold: The Good ... Amish Fiction: A Hand to Hold: The Good Samaritan (Amish Parables Book 1) - Grace Given,Pure Read

This was an interesting take on the Good Samaritan . I voluntarily chose to review this and I've given it a 4.5* rating. This is also book 9 of the Amish Christmas Books set. I must say that the guys were very open to try things. Is this a guy thing? Anyway, nice ending.

How Much the Heart Can Hold - Various

Seven stories about seven forms of love. Can there be that many really? Well yes as How Much the Heart Can Hold shows. Each of the stories in this collection focus on a different form of love: La Douleur Exquise – the exquisite pain of unrequited love; Pragma – a longstanding love; Philautia – self love, which can either be narcissism or a noble understanding of the self; Mania – a love that is without rational thinking; Storge- familial love; Eros – romantic love or desire and Agape – unconditional, altruistic love.

 

This collection takes the concept of love and turns it on it’s head. These are not traditional love stories for they are not inspired by the traditional concept of love. As you read some, the love that is the inspiration to the story is obvious, with others it is more subtle, emerging from the story sometimes after it has long since been read.

As with any collection there were stories I enjoyed more than others. The ones that standout for me are Codas by Carys Bray, White Wine by Nikesh Shukla and the final story, The Human World by Bernadine Evaristo.

 

Codas is a moving tale of familial love, in more than one respect and one in which many readers may see reflections of their own lives. White Wine is a story of self love but not of the narcissistic type. In it we see the internal battle to love who we are, that attempts to change our core to pleases others is often futile, that the issue is the other person’s alone and that this realisation is about finally loving ourselves. The Human World is based on altruistic love, of its futility and it’s reward and is thought-provoking in its concept.

 

All of the stories have the ability to effect the reader. Love is, after all, one of the ruling emotions for humans. The stories are moving, thought provoking, familiar and also unknown.

 

A varied, interesting, contemplative collection, with an unusual but effective theme.

Hold Tight
Hold Tight - Harlan Coben My first Harlan Coben book. Will definitely not be my last. The story itself was really good, but not the best I've read. I absolutely love his writing style though.
