good read, great characters
Never Apart - Romily Bernard

Grace felt like she was going to die.  Again as she and Ander run to get away from Finn but he always seems to catch them. Ander promises he will find Grace if they Fall again. as he always does. It’s always the three of them, they always find each. In every lifetime Ander had died and Grace watched. This time Grace  tells Ander “you promised”. Grace repeats it louder as that will bring Finn closer and Ander will have to keep his word. Every other time Ander had fought  Finn and lost.  This time Grace will  fight and Ander will watch and maybe the pattern will break. Grace doesn’t fight very well   but is good at being a lure for Finn. He’s given her lots  of practice. Grace waits and waits and Fin studies her and studies her. Then Finn says Grace and she charges him. Hitting him low, ramming her shoulder into his chest as his nails dig into her arm. Finn plows her into the mud and grace jams the knife deep, deeper but then Grace slips and as Finn and Grace grapple in the mud Ander yanks Grace to her feet and tells her to run but Grace says she can’t. Grace and Ander had done this over forty times with always the same ending. Grace understands how it works, how it ends, how much she loved the boy that she was about to watch die. Once upon a time they were all friends but now…. Ander tells Grace to run but she can’t. She can’t do it anymore, she can’t watch it anymore. Finn was barely past seventeen as was Grace. She says to Finn “ why does this keep happening, why did Finn keep doing thi. They had been friends”. Finn said : “we have to pay for what we did”. It takes Finn five days to find them every time. Grace came to in someone’s house that has a party going on. There are other rules Ander and Grace knw: 1- get your stuff, 2- get oriented, 3- get going because they only have five days before Finn finds them again. A s far as Ander and Grace can tell every time they Fall they surface with different lives it’s like they end up in parallel universes, timelines that belong to other versions of themselves. Grace doesn’t know why her name is always the same, she doesn’t know why Finn always hurts her. This time though things are different. Ander didn’t find Grace, this time Grace’s family is together again including her twin who had been missing in all her other jumps. How can she solve this puzzle alone.  Ander and her twin brother are best friends. This time Ander didn’t remember finding Grace and before he always had. From the time Grace was six she felt connected to Ander. The three had issues- Ander’s was drinking, Grace was extremely shy and had social anxiety. And Finn just wanted to be accepted for who he is.

I liked this book a lot. I wish I could rate this a 4.5. I loved the twists and turns. I didn’t want to put this down once I started reading this book, it had my interest all the way from the beginning until the end.  This had a good plot and pace. This book draws you in right from the beginning. This was also well written. I don’t usually like going back and forth in a book but it just wasn’t that bad  although I liked being in the past less as for me it dragged some. This is a fantasy thriller and a very good one. I felt this was a sad romance though. I loved the characters and the  twists and turns and I recommend. Once again I wish  I could rate it a 4.5.

Compelling and Emotional
Strip Me Bare - M. Never

This second chance romance took me by surprise. I fully expected a steamy read and I got that, but there is so much more to Ryan and Alana's story. M. Never certainly knows how to pack on the feels and she does it quite masterfully. I got so frustrated with Alana's constant submission to her father's orders, no matter how far out there they were, but at the same time, my heart broke for her situation. The chemistry between this pair was almost palpable and through it all, you can't help but root for their happy ending. While the pace does get a bit slow at times, the writing is compelling and I was sufficiently drawn in that it didn't bother me. So, when you see the title and cover, do not dismiss this as just another stripper romance. Strip me Bare is a packed full of emotions, tug at the heartstrings journey of two people who will fight and claw their way to each other, going through the fire to emerge victorious as they discover who and what they want to be... Together.

Yey!  I wasn't totally enamored with The Buried Giant and Nocturnes (and I've yet to read The Unconsoled and An Artist of the Floating World), but I'm a fan of his on the basis of Never Let Me Go, The Remains of the Day, and When We Were Orphans alone.

 

Congratulations, Mr. Ishiguro!

Fantastic!!
Forget Me Never: Hell Yeah! - Sable Hunt... Forget Me Never: Hell Yeah! - Sable Hunter,Ryan O'Leary,Jess Hunter

Forget Me Never by Sable Hunter is an awesome book.  Ms Hunter has given us a well-written book.  I really enjoyed the characters in this story, they are phenomenal.  Savannah and Patrick's story has lots of drama, humor, suspense and a touch of paranormal along with some sizzling sexy bits.  I enjoyed reading Forget Me Never and look forward to my next Sable Hunter book.  Forget Me Never is book 7 of the Hell Yeah! Series - Cajun Style but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Great romance collection
Drawn to Him: A Romance Collection - Willow Winters,M. Never,L.J. Shen,K. Webster,Jade West,Isabella Starling,A. Zavarelli,K.L. Kreig

The beauty of a collection of novellas is that you can read them all, one after another, or you can pick one and enjoy a quick read, getting to them all over time. My favorite thing is discovering new to me authors. Drawn to Him has a great mix of eight authors, some I've read and some I'll be reading again. There's a little something for everyone who enjoys the romance genre. We get mystery, suspense, Alpha males, angst, and even a bit of the taboo. The stories are well-written and engaging, and while I liked some of the tales and characters more than others, I can honestly say that I enjoyed them all.
