It’s been said that the Universe will let you know if something isn’t right for you. The first time, it will hit you with a pebble. Then a brick. Then a boulder. Let’s just say that I got flattened.

Brandon Sanderson is my all time favorite author because of this series. After reading the last word, I closed the book and just sat in stunned awe. I didn't expect that ending. I won't get too in depth in this review because to do so would spoil it for other readers.
This series has one of the most incredible worlds and an amazing magic system. The fight scenes are epic! I loved Vin, Kelsier, Sazed, and the whole team. Sazed was, without a doubt, one of my most favorite characters because I empathized with his "what to believe" struggle. I went through it myself.
This series has some of my favorite quotes. The writing is flawless. If you love fantasy, you will love this trilogy.
The Disappearance of Lady Edith - One tragic night has lead three women on a journey of danger, courage and love. Christina McKnight, begins her Undaunted Debutantes series with a bang. The Disappearance of Lady Edith is a story of betrayals, danger and the quest for justice. The death of a close friend has pushed Lady Edith to the edge. She wants someone to pay and she needs answers. Her determination catches the eye of a possible suitor, but also puts her in more danger than she could ever have imagined. The lure of the chase is hard to ignore.
The Misfortune of Lady Lucianna - What draws me to author Christina McKnight is one trait above all else. She doesn't write victims, she creates heroines. Her female leads are spirited individuals with the brains to fight for themselves instead of playing the damsel in distress. Of course, in the case of Lucianna that proved to be somewhat of a negative trait, because she lead with her heart instead of the facts. A painful tragedy has set her on a course that could prove to be her undoing. The Misfortune of Lady Lucianna is a story of survival that romances, intrigues and captivates.
The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia - Christina McKnight has immense talent. The shining beacon of that gift is her ability to create great characters. Characters that stand out above and beyond the words on the page. Heroes and heroines that come alive with their personalities as they lead stories of courage and heart. The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia fits that mold. Ophelia has the distinction of being slightly bookish in personality but never lacking in heart. The death of a friend changed her life. Guilt drove her, but love saved her. That one event set her on a course that lead her to her soulmate and brought her out of her reserved shell and into the risky venture of life. The danger is not only in the mystery that pulls her deeper into the dark, but in the uncertainty that comes with listening to her heart. These Undaunted Debutantes are loyal, fierce and intoxicating. With the series as a whole Ms. McKnight not only conjured up a dynamic and captivating trio, she also spotlighted how beautiful it is to be unique.

The Sullivans Boxed Set Books 1-3 by Bella Andre
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a boxed set of books 1-3 of The San Francisco Sullivans series. These books can be read as individual standalone novels. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this amazing series in order intended.
Book 1: The Look Of Love
Chloe is rescued in the dark of night by none other than Chase Sullivan. He can see she has already been through it. He invites her to stay and gets to know her better.
Chase is seriously attracted to Chloe. She seems to feel the same. When it all comes down to it, asking her to stay was the best choice of all.
These characters are so much fun to read! The family is full of charming and witty people who just happened to be hot. The setting is dreamy, and this story is just the perfect side of sizzling!
Book 2: From This Moment On
Marcus meets Nicola and falls nearly at her feet. While he helps and protects her, she cannot help but respond to the serious and caring man inside. When he finds out who she is will his feelings change?
Nicola is so glad to finally have a chance with someone who knows nothing of her past. A man could be more than intimidated by the garbage out there about her. Being in the public eye makes her more than wary of the men she meets.
Such a sweet and almost fairy tale story that touched me deep. I was so pleased at the end I actually clapped! I love these characters and I am excited to read more.
Book 3: Can't Help Falling In Love
Gabe has been burned both professionally and personally. As a firefighter, he is always giving of himself. He needs a true partner in every sense of the word.
Megan feels she owes the men who helped save her and her daughter. Meeting Gabe feels like a dream. Is there a future that can be real?
This was a slow burn in the romance. I love how it got hotter, and a family was such a treat to read about. The recurring characters in this series make it all worthwhile.
Every page was easy to turn to the next, and then the next. I am eager to read more in this amazing series. The Sullivans are truly character's in every sense of the word.
