Sometimes Love Don't Feel Like It Should by AmyPond45
Sometimes Love Don't Feel Like It Should - AmyPond45

An excellent fanfic in which Dean opens a door in the bunker on to an alternate universe of what might have been. The author characterises Dean to perfection.

It Happened on Love Street by Lia Riley
It Happened on Love Street - Lia Riley

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I enjoyed this small town romance overall. I have been wanting to read Lia Riley for a while and once I read the description for this book, I knew that I wanted to give this one a try. It was a light-hearted, fun story that went pretty quickly for me. This is the first book in a new series and I just loved the little town of Everland, Georgia.

Pepper has just relocated to Everland for a new job. She shows up for her first day of work and realizes that there is a major problem and she doesn't have the job after all. So now she is in a new town with few funds and no job. When she is offered a job as a dog walker by the town vet who happens to be her next door neighbor, she needs to overcome her fear of dogs quickly and take the position.

Rhett is the local veterinarian. After a previous romantic mishap, he does his best to stay out of local gossip. He helps out the new next door neighbor and is instantly attracted but wants to keep things private. He is very much a part of the local community with his best friend serving as the mayor. Everyone in the town seems to be waiting for cupid to catch Rhett.

I liked Pepper and Rhett. Pepper was pretty tough and was able to make the most of the situation she is in. She does take on more responsibility than she probably should and tries to always make practical decisions. Rhett was such an all around good guy. It would be hard not to like him. Together they had a lot of chemistry and the more they were together the more I liked them as a couple. They really did seem to get closer as the book progressed and by the end of the story, I could really feel their connection.

The book did have a couple of issues. Pepper has a huge fear of dogs at the start of the story. It seemed to take her all of 30 seconds to get over that fear and become a pro dog-walker hanging out at the local dog park. She even adopts a puppy pretty quickly after shedding her fear of dogs. To go from can't stand to be near a dog to must adopt this dog in the span of a few pages seemed crazy. I am sorry it just doesn't work like that.

I also was pulled out of the story several times by some weird phrasing. It seemed like maybe the author was trying to be funny but it felt forced. There were several times that I had to stop and go back over a passage to make sure it really said what I thought it did. I didn't notice this happening as much towards the end of the book but it seemed to happen a lot at the beginning of the story.

I would recommend this book to others. Despite a couple of issues, it was a really fun romantic read. I look forward to future installments in this series.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley.

Say It Strong (Rock Candy #1) by Virna DePaul Free!
Say It Strong (Say You Love Me Book 2) - Virna DePaul

Liam Collier, sexy and enigmatic frontman for Point Break, the world's hottest rock band, is at the top of his game. With two songs in the Billboard Top 10, he's a rock-and-roll bad boy, known for his trademark falsetto as well as his proclivity for partying and hooking up with gorgeous women. For Liam, falling in love was something he figured would happen far off in the future--not on the first day of his first world tour. And not with his super sexy but extremely reserved background cellist.

With a Master of Music degree from Juilliard School of Music, Abby Chan is on the road to becoming a cellist for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. But to pay back her expensive education, first she has to travel another kind of road--a gig playing cello for the North American leg of a garish rock band's world tour. She'd expected hard work and long hours, but what she never expected was the intensity of her reactions to Liam Collier. He's sweet. He's hot. And despite being surrounded by roadies and the world's most beautiful women, he's set his sights on her.

When classical music meets rock and prim propriety meets a carefree attitude, Abby and Liam venture outside their comfort zones. What they discover is that living wild is the perfect preparation for flying high--on love.

"It Huts Me To Love You" by Ms. T. Nicole

My Viewpoints....

This story was very well written urban fiction that will keep your attention all the way to the end and then leaving you wanting more. Let's see we have Yamuel [Yam] an over protective father, Snake...Yams best friend, Paisley[Pay Pay] the daughter of Yam, Dana the supposedly best friend of Paisley and then their is DJ...who was definitely involved with Paisley and then there will be a few others that give the reader quite a captivating story with lots of drama. Let me say that these two Yam and Snake has taken over the empire as 'King of the Streets' and in doing all of this they had raised Paisley keeping the fact a secret they she was the daughter of Yam so his enemies wouldn't use her as bait. However, as this story continues the big problem to this story was this father [Yam] ever be able to let his daughter [Paisley now 23 years old] grow up, make her own mistakes and live her own life?' Well it seems like maybe this will happen for Paisley as DJ comes into the picture. But there will be a lots that has gone on in DJ's life that one thing he will not tolerate in his life is a person that lie to him. Now, what had happened earlier in his life would have caused him to be like that?

As this story continues there will be plenty of action going on that will definitely keep the reader turning pages to see what will happen next. Toward the end why was this quote so important to DJ...as it comes from Yam...during Thanksgiving visit....

"Daddy stood up and greeted Uncle Snake as he often did. "What's good, bro? ****let's eat. Let's live. We are kings, and the streets are our servants."

Why did this statement coming from Yam caused DJ to have the reaction he had? Well, to learn more, yes this is a cliffhanger where you will have to pick up the author next part 2 to find out what DJ has in his mind as he says to Paisley ..."P, I love you baby girl, and always remember that I've always been one hell of a cleanup man, and I promise you, I'm about to do the biggest cleanup of my ******* life." Will the truth of this whole story finally come out?
