Gotta love it!
Blind Love - Kishan Paul

Blind Love is a fantastic contemporary Romance by Kishan Paul.  I read this the first time it was published and loved it.  I just read an advance readers copy of the new version and love it even more.  Ms. Paul has added a few scenes and altered others making the book even better.  This well-written book is loaded with a stellar cast of characters.  Lauren is legally blind but manages her business from her home, with a little help.  Gabe is ex-military and now flipping houses and he buys the house next door to Lauren.  Gabe and Lauren's story is packed with drama, humor, action, sizzle and suspense.  There is not a dull moment in the whole book and I loved every page.   I look forward to my next book by Kishan Paul and keep my fingers crossed that Sunny will get her story someday.  

 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Definitely not a standalone
Six Impossible Things: Rhymes With Love - Elizabeth Boyle

If you want to have an idea of what is going on in this, make sure you've read from #3 and on in this series, this is #6. I read #3 in 2014 and #5 in 2016 and I could barely hang in there as it was in the beginning. 

 

This pretty much follows the mystery set up in the books I mentioned, one of the bigger villains is pretty much already dealt with but while the other books dispatched of him, they also hinted at someone else behind the scenes, this is all about the hunt for that someone behind the scenes. 

 

I feel like I've been complaining about this a lot lately, just my string of luck with picking stories I guess, but our hero and heroine had a childhood friendship, we get no scenes of it. Basically, she already has found him sexy and wanted him, while he is waking up to the fact that he, too, has always wanted her. I missed watching and experiencing the development of attraction.

Love On the Slopes (One Night to Forever #4) by Melissa McClone
Love On the Slopes (One Night to Forever #4) - Melissa McClone

 

 

Letting go of the past means taking control of the future. How is that possible when the past you're trying to forget refuses to allow you to move on? To err is human. To forgive is hard. Love on the Slopes is about learning to forgive. McClone speeds full - throttle into the pain of heartache and the power of forgiveness. Brynn and Ryland have history. Each thought they had moved on, but their heart's had other plans. Their path is a journey that blends sweet and sour. Can they turn bitterness into a forever kind of love?

The Tao of Logos Uniting visible and invisible

Have you seen the oldest preserved Gospel of John found in Egypt 200 AC? It took me ages but I did go line by line comparing the old Greek text to the translations, with the mind of a Slav from a Balkan country, because we still do use the same way of narrating ancient stories. Read also - Esoteric Mystical Knowledge Methods

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…

Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος, καὶ ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν, καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος.

En arkhêi ên ho lógos, kaì ho lógos ên pròs tòn theón, kaì theòs ên ho lógos.

Despite the conventional translation as "word", λόγος is not “a word” in the grammatical sense, the term lexis (λέξις, léxis) would have been used if our narrator wished to convey “a word”. I much more prefer what David Bentley Hart translates as: 'In the origin there was the Logos, and the Logos was present with GOD, and the Logos was god'.

 

 

For decades scholars agreed that Jesus most likely grew up in his home at Nazareth using Aramaic as his mother tongue. Some speculate that Hebrew was only the language of Rabbis, a dead language after the Babylonian Exile, yet it is likely that Jesus still fluently spoke Hebrew. The fact that the Gospels were originally written in Greek show it was widespread in Jesus’ time so when he conversed with “Romans” they would have used Greek. Judging the crowds attending the gathering, the scholars concluded that Jesus spoke the entire Sermon on the Mount in Greek.

Logos (Ancient Greek: λόγος), a Greek word meaning "word", "reason", or much more...

๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
The first half of this book is based in truth and the second half is more fantasy seeped in magic spells.  Sadly, I had to force myself to read the first half of this...it was boring and downright depressing, and I get that it followed the actual history of the Romanov family so it was bound to be boring and depressing.  The one good thing that came about from me reading this is I actually looked up and read about what exactly happened to the Romanov's because honestly I couldn't remember ever learning about it; if I ever did.   The bad; is that half of the story read a lot like the wiki page did, almost verbatim.  Added to that, the overall writing is kind of mediocre, so much so that I had to start skimming to get through the story.  

The second half of the story is what saved it from a two-star rating.  It was much easier to get through and the writing even improved some too.  The romance was easier to believe by the last third of the story because it felt kind of off before that.  Despite finding the fantasy elements easier to read, they still didn't make me feel like anything is possible...

Overall, I wanted to like this more than I actually did, but it just didn't pull me in enough for it to happen.  Maybe, if the actual historical truths in this, like the time they spent under lock and key, had a smaller part of the story...than maybe I could embrace this a little more.
