Hard To Let Go
Hard to Let Go: A Haven's Cove Novel - Jaclyn Quinn

 

Impressive. Honestly, if I had been handed this book and known nothing about this author (which I honestly know very little) I would never have guessed that this was her first book.  This was so fantastic.

 

A childhood bully/bullied, enemies to lovers story, this one had all the buildup I look for.  The kissing was scorching hot and honestly the entire relationship developed amazingly well.

 

While I started out feeling this had similarities to another recent book I have read, this steered quickly into new territory and the story grew quite beautifully.  Brody’s childhood and his relationship with his mother was just heartbreaking. But the love and devotion that transpired tapped into the feels something hard.  Phew.  I was a mess.

 

For the first time in Owen’s memory, the long table his grandfather built over 40 years ago, was filled with family-blood and chosen.

 

Family indeed.  This had such a strong sense of family. Of love.  Of commitment. And of support. These moments were simply beautiful.

 

I have heard more is to come from this author and eagerly await more on Jonah.  He was a quiet force but so compassionate and strong.  And Gabe…wow!  Look out.  I am so in love with this character.  His style, his wit and his love for Brody was written perfectly.  In addition, the banter with Leslie was just so well done and genuine.  Every scene felt real. 

 

I adored the aunts, the mothers and even sweet and confused Nate.  Cannot wait to see more from this guy as well.

 

Overall, I adored every moment of this book and cannot find one thing to complain about. LOL

 

** Highly Recommended**

 

An ARC was received from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

He was their family. They were his. They were worth every cut and bruise and scream.

The Raven King - Nora Sakavic

Facing Riko like this went against everything his mother taught him. He'd been raised to run, to sacrifice everything and everyone to ensure his own survival. His mother had never given him ground to stand on. Maybe that was why he hadn't been strong enough to save her in the end. A jumble of lies had nothing to fight for. But Neil Josten was a Fox. Andrew called this home; Nicky called him family. Neil wasn't going to lose any of it. If two weeks with Riko was the price to keep his team safe, Neil would pay it.

All the Beautiful Dead
Beautiful Dead - R. Lee Smith

I don’t even know how to rate this. This author can write beautifully, but there isn’t enough balance to action, romance, dialogue, everything. Way too much dialogue. And every bit of it seemed to be a some sort of witty debate. 

 

There were characters who were written to be hated, and hate them I did. I also saw another side to them though that made me almost feel for them and understand why they were the way they were. 

 

This is is way too long. When I saw the page count I was expecting some major world building, a lot of plot, but no. There was only a girl who was messed up by the death of her mother who felt she needed to set out and save the world to right that wrong, she seemed to think she was a hero though.  In the beginning I thought this would be a evil vs good, in way it was, but it was more about blending the two and seeing good and evil in all. 

 

So so I would call this monster romance, but not the banging Bigfoot kind.

 

i feel I should add that this is very disturbing. I almost hate this book, but I don’t. I don’t know what I think of this. I enjoyed hating almost everything about it?!

The Raven King - Nora Sakavic

He'd divided his secrets between Kevin and Andrew. Kevin reacted the way Neil expected everyone would to the truth: with a horrified demand that Neil leave immediately. Andrew, though, nodded in the face of it and told Neil to stay. He stood his ground when Neil asked him for murder and gave him a key to their house.
