"Safe Place" Dangerous Bonds Book 2 by Shani Greene-Dowdell

My Thoughts....

I enjoyed the story even though it was a little predictable. However, it was still a good sweet read where you find Tameka had a horrible marriage and coming out of it with two children she definitely had reason for trust and heartache issues especially what she had endured from that crazy ex. I will say karma is something in what call comes to that ex.

It was great to see by the end Tameka finding someone like Jeb who went after what he wanted and even having his cousin Channing and his wife Kemara behind him was definitely good.

So, from heartbreak to truly happiness...."Safe Place" would be a good read to see how it all happened.

My Thoughts....

I really enjoyed reading 'Undone By Fire' which dealt with Naveah and Orion. How this story went from a trial to a HEA was simply well written for these two giving the reader quite a captivating read. I loved how these two seemed to bond from the very beginning of their meeting. Then you add in that abusive person and let's not leave out some other outstanding characters...Tommy, Astrid, Gary along with a few others and you will have one heck of a good read. I will say that Tommy was one funny character that will keep you laughing at his antics throughout the story. Even though the reader will find some funny parts of the read this was still a serious story about 'Domestic Violence.' It seems like it took Naveah a minute to understand that she had people who were willing to help her but will she be willing to receive their help? This was a good story in that when certain things happen through abuse one cannot stay silent. There is 'help out there and it will not just stop and just go away.' No person should have to go through this situation alone especially when there is help for you! Well done novel to the author for such a real good entertaining read.

"Rudy" by Terry Poole
My Thoughts....

This was sweet m/m relationship that started almost from the first time Rudy meet Clay. However there will be a lots that will go on from Rudy and his crazy side of the family. There seems to be a lots of hatred due to Rudy's father, sons [especially Donny, Rudy's older half brother and his mother It was quite a delightful read as we see Clay enter the picture and was truly their for Rudy definitely being his protector.

I liked how this author brings in the shifting with the reindeer effect of the read and all from the cast of characters become part of the Rudolph the red nosed reindeer story:From Rudy..Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, Clay..Rudolph's love interest, Herman ...Hermy elf dentist, Donny.. Donner, Louis... Dasher, Daniel...Dancer, Juno... Cupid, Halley,...Comet, Rai...Blitzen, Tripper...Prancer, Dixon...Vixen and and list goes on. "Rudy" story will definitely have a 'new take on Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.'


This is one of those reads that you will have you will have to pick up "Rudy" to get the gust to the read and all because I don't want to spoil it by telling you too much. Once you start the read it will hold your attention as we see rather 'Clay will be able to save Rudy's life and the end up in a HEA, the toy factory being saved' and will of Rudy's horrible family members get what they deserved with all of the harm that they had caused him?

"Silver Fox" by Misha Elliott

My Thinking:

I liked this cute and sweet romantic story that featured Jill Caldwell and Richard Sisk. It was beautifully well written by this author giving us a story of a younger woman and older man relationship. It was no doubt that after Jill meets Richard much earlier from her babysitting his daughter would they meet again under different circumstances now that she was 26 and he was 40.

The story takes off so very well with the additions of a few other supporting characters that will add light to the read that will only keep you turning the pages to see what is going on next. After Jill and Richard meet for the second time will there be something that will keep each other interested? "From the moment I first laid my eyes on Richard Sisk I felt an attraction to him." What was up with their 'FriendZone?'' Was this what Richard wanted and just why was that? Well, to get all of the answers and so much more you will have to pick up "Silver Fox" to see how well this author will bring it all out so well to the reader. I don't want to leave out how well I enjoyed how this author brings in on top of each of her chapter headings that will give the reader some 'thought provoking quotes' that one will ponder long after the read. In the end "Silver Fox" was definitely a beautiful read that I would recommend as a good read.

"The Wedding Date" by Jasmine Guillory

My Thoughts...

This was one quite interesting story that will keep you turning the pages to see what was coming next. It was definitely a story where Dr. Drew Nichols did get on my nerves with his stubbornness a few times in the way he handled things with Alexa Monroe. Yes, there were many ups and down but aren't there in many relationships...especially with they are a bi-racial couple. However, all in all the story did come out come out giving the reader a well written story that was entertaining and funny. I did feel that this story was somewhat predictable but still a good read. One thing for sure these characters loved to eat. To check out what all that is about you will have to pick up 'The Wedding Date' and see for yourself how well this author brings out this story of a interracial relationship where 'love wan't part of the deal.'

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley & Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.
