Book Review: Tempting the Bodyguard by J. Lynn

One Line: I loved everything about this book! Chandler Gamble has stolen my heart! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Oh, it was so wonderful to finally be back in this world again. I missed the Gamble brothers so much! Lynn, of course, does not disappoint, and I believe she saved the best Gamble brother for last. I didn’t think it would happen, but I have to admit that Chandler… Read more »

One Line: Oh how I loved the sweet, filthy things that happened in this book! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Sweet Filthy Boy was definitely an enjoyable read.

Both of those things, coupled with… Read more »

As the Bump Grows: Week 26

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 2

Week 26! Well, I finally got the blood results back and WE’RE IN THE CLEAR! WOOHOO! Back when I had my anatomy US last month, the doctor said they noticed a white spot on the baby’s heart, which was concerning because it’s one of many soft markers for Down’s Syndrome. Of course, that surprised me! She sent me in to get another, more in depth (Level 2) US a few… Read more »

Book Review: Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Book Review: Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★

One Line: A decent ending to a great series! In My Opinion: Add to cart! As far as series endings go, Sweet Reckoning wasn’t bad at all. Sure, I could’ve used more action, more danger and intrigue throughout the story, but I still really enjoyed how things ended. I’ll admit, the first half of the book was a bit dragging, but I understood how Higgins had to close everything out… Read more »

As the Bump Grows: Week 25

As the Bump Grows: Week 25

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 6

Week 25 was pretty boring, in a good way though. Not much as changed from last week. I did notice that my feet weren’t as swollen as they’ve been lately, which was a surprise to me because usually once they start swelling, they stay that way. I’m still waiting on some blood test results before finally letting you all know what’s been going on. And now for the belly shot:… Read more »

Blog Tours, Giveaways, Young Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★

One Line: A strong ending to a very entertaining series. I’m sad to see Dante go! In My Opinion: Add to cart! The Warrior was an overall strong ending to a fun and entertaining series. While I’ll admit things started off rather slow in the beginning, I think it’s just in the nature of these “conclusion books” and it did set up for the latter half nicely. Dante was, by… Read more »
