My Previous Book Reviews

I started by own book review blog on blogger.com as my New Year's Resolution before I ever found out about this website.  I plan to share all of my reviews on both platforms now, but I would LOVE to have people check out my previous posts.




Here's to many more books, many more reviews, and sharing the joy of reading!

A Husband by New Year's (The McClendon Holiday Series Book 4)
A Husband by New Year's (The McClendon Holiday Series Book 4) - Sean D. Young ARC Review: A Husband by New Year's (McClendon Holiday) by Sean D. Young

The best way to sum up Patrick and Renee is through the words of a familiar melody. The first line of an old Keith Whitley song fits this couple perfectly. I have always loved the tune, When You Say Nothing at All and in the opening verse of that song it says " It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart." Simple words, perfect description, beautiful sentiment. Ms. Young managed to convey a ton of realistic emotion in a classically uncomplicated story. The most gifted of artists are not remembered for the words they say or the things they do but the magic they leave behind. That is how A Husband By New Year's made me feel. Like I was standing in the presence of something special.

Fast paced with lots of laughs
New Year's Resolution: One To Keep (Rive... New Year's Resolution: One To Keep (River's Sigh B & B) - Bishop Ev

Ha! I love a romance that's filled with humor. We start off with Sophie and Jesse in the same bar sitting alone and toasting themselves for deciding to be single forever. They've both had too much too drink, and even though neither of them are casual one night stand kind of people they try. And they both chicken out. I really liked that. 


They spend the next few days getting to know each other, riding quite the roller coaster of attraction and irritation with each other. There's a lot of baggage for them to work through, but I felt the story line flowed smoothly and believably. 


You'll find Sophie refreshingly honest, even when she's confused about her own emotions. Jesse is alternately sweet and frustratingly "man" when he's trying to figure out his own deal. 


The only character that confused me in this story was Stella. She started off nice and then had a night of total witchery if you know what I mean. It was the classic "I like him so I'm going to sabotage you" routine and it was so obvious I don't think Sophie should have fallen for it. 


Anyway, I'd give this a movie rating between PG-13. They don't, but there's foreplay that's more than PG. The story itself gets a solid 4 from me. 


1-5 scale and what it means:

1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad

2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing

3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive

3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love

4: Solid mind candy / worth reading

4.5: So very close to perfection! / must read

5: I could not put it down and I’m still thinking about it! / a true treasure


Movie Ratings in relation to my review:

Clean--Hallmark movies, some kissing, no nudity, no sex on or off "screen"

PG--Some innuendo but nothing kids don't hear every day, sex is all closed door

PG-13--some language (swear words not related to sex), more talk about sex, heavy petting, removal of clothing on screen, but sex is closed door. 

R--swearing (can be related to sex), feels like the whole story is about the sex and not the relationship or some other plot
