Then he gets the phone call. Sadie’s been in a car accident.

By the time he reaches her side, she is critical.

My One Regret by Claudia Burgoa–Review

My Own Regret is a book that will stay with you for a very long time. I am still reeling over it and don’t know if I can do it justice with my review!

Here is a sample of some feelings/thoughts I felt while reading My One Regret: Hate, Love, Shock, Anger, Surprise, Hope, Soul crushing sadness, vengeance, deception and true, deep and soulful angst. Claudia was able to take me on an emotional roller coaster that had me feeling everything and pulled me in as if I was a background actor in the lives of Kaden and Sadie. My One Regret is told from dual POV’s, as well as past and present scenes. Be prepared to have tissues handy, because she holds back no punches. She rocks the foundation of your world from the prologue and doesn’t seem to put you back on sturdy footing until the last word.

‘What can I say? I believe that souls come in pairs.’…’I’d give anything to find mine.’

Kaden Hades is a Rockstar for Killing Hades, who along with his buddy/bandmate is playing at a local coffee shop. Kaden’s friend immediately notices the blonde and calls ‘dibs’, while Kaden is completely enamored with the auburn-haired girl with purple and pink streaks in her hair. He notices through the whole concert that she is singing along, while maintaining strong eye contact with Kaden. After the show, Kaden tries to keep an eye on her, but loses her in the crowd. Have no fear, Sadie, marches right up to him and strikes up a conversation. The rest is history, however, bumpy and time consuming it may be.

‘You’re made of sunshine, rainbows, and happiness.’…’Your bright light is a magnet to my darkness.’

Sadie is a local florist with her own shop, which is about one year old. She has worked hard to have what she does and she loves creating memories for people. Her store is more than flowers, it also includes party favors, jewelry, toys, etc. She is truly trying to cater to everyone that may walk in. Sadie is a very sweet, kind and caring individual. She didn’t have the best childhood, despite her dad having a lot of money. Her mother is on a continual rotation with rehab for alcoholism and pill popping. Somehow, Sadie is the one that usually ends up taking care of her.

I absolutely adored the storytelling of Kaden and Sadie. Unlike some books, where the H and h jump into a relationship right away, these two truly started off as friends. They got to know each other; their hopes, dreams and thoughts for a future.

Unfortunately, something happens in Kaden’s life, that causes him to lose his focus and he forced to make an ‘on the spot’ decision regarding his relationship with Sadie. Kaden has two daughters that he absolutely adores and would do anything for. The negative side to those two daughters is a very manipulative and self-centered ex-wife. Kaden tries to stay amicable with her for the sake of his daughters, but there is absolutely no relationship and if he didn’t have to talk to her about the girls, he wouldn’t talk to her.

The story of Sadie and Kaden is an emotional one. It will rip out your heart and gut you, but you will eventually get put back together and feel contented of these two scarred souls! PS…I, ABSOLUTELY, loved the interaction between Kaden and Sadie when it came to nicknames for each other. Truly the best comedic spot highlight in an emotionally heavy book!

‘Nothing is guaranteed or permanent. Life is ever changing, nothing set in stone or promised to us. The world doesn’t owe you anything, nor you to the world. To receive, you have to give, but yet never expect. You have to find your own path and change it as many times as needed. Adapting, accepting, and learning that you aren’t guaranteed happiness or love. But the more love and happiness you give, the more will come back to you. Trust the journey. Always trust your heart.’

Manic Monday by Piper Rayne–Review

What would you do if you hated a person, just on principle alone? If you had been burned by the local mechanic, would you hate ALL mechanics? What if hated a guy, because he was a mechanic, but did funny things to your system? Would you break your rules and say, ‘screw it’ or would you live in limbo between hate/love?

Well, Manic Monday by Piper Rayne, is that book exactly and more. Victoria is a divorced woman with a seven-year-old daughter, Jade. Victoria detests her ex-husband, from some things that he’s said and done. To truly start over, as well as, help her mom who was recently diagnosed with MS, Victoria and Jade move home to Chicago.

Victoria is a strong, independent and determined single mother, who besides working a full-time job and taking care of her mom, she is also going to school with expectations of graduating soon. It is a daily ritual that Victoria walks Jade to school (which is only a few blocks from home) before she catches the train to work. This has become her new normal, until one particular Monday morning. They are within seeing distance of the school entrance, when she notices an Uber pull up. Out pops a little boy, Henry, who is about the same age as Jade. Jade being the intuitive seven-year-old that she is, immediately stops to yell ‘Hello’ to him. This, however, is not what has caught Victoria’s attention. It is the tall, handsome man that steps out still putting his tie on with still slightly damp hair that catches Victoria’s attention. It is none other than Reed Warner, the best man from her wedding. Oh yeah, he also happens to be a lawyer just like her ex. Despite being drool-worthy, she immediately hates him because of his profession.

Victoria and Reed are phenomenal leads in this book, but there are some extraordinary secondary characters. (PS…. Reed is yummy!) Firstly, there is Jade, who at seven years old is very perceptive with people and situations around her. She figured out early on, that Henry was the key to getting Reed and Victoria together. Secondly, there are some amazing women that Victoria work’s with. Hannah is boss/owner of the foundation to help empower young girls. She is the ultimate boss to work for. She is funny, down to earth, but quick to realize when they need a break to either chit-chat or get out of the office. Lastly, is another co-worker of hers, Chelsea. Oh my goodness, Chelsea was hilarious. Some of the antics she would get into, the stories that she could tell and you never knew what would pop out of her mouth next. I’m looking forward to their books.

Overall, Manic Monday, was a very sweet and funny book with occasional interludes of steaminess.  There was drama, but very realistic drama. Something that could truly happen in the real world and not for the sake of the storyline. Piper and Rayne delivered a well-written book that was difficult to put down.

American Cinderella by Krista Lakes–Review

⭐⭐4 ‘Paradisian’ Stars⭐⭐

Who here is familiar with the Disney story of Cinderella? Let’s refresh. Wicked and evil stepmother…Check. Pampered stepsister…Check. Hard working stepdaughter…Check. Said stepdaughter caught under the wicked talons of the evil stepmother…Check. Fairy godmother…Check. The iconic blue dress…Check. A Prince and a ball…Check. Running from the ball and dropping a memento…Check.

Are you catching a pattern here? The difference between the original story and this one is that, ‘American Cinderella’ is set among the elite in the world of politics in DC. Aria has lived her life in following her father around the haunts of political DC. Before his passing, he was a Senator and is responsible for a prominent law being passed. After witnessing this, Aria has been determined to make her own way to the Senate just like her father. Unfortunately for Aria, Audrey Verna (evil stepmother) throws a wrench in her plans. In order to fall in line, Aria is demoted to a job that she had seven years prior. On her way to her ‘new’ position, she is literally ran into by a good-looking man with an accent by the name of Henry Prescott.

From first meeting, there was a spark. An electrical current that ran through them, that they had a hard time to ignore. Henry is from Paradisa who is doing business with the rest of the family. Henry sweeps Aria of her feet. He is truly courting her and she is falling quickly.

American Cinderella is a cute adaptation of the original story. It is a very sweet (almost saccharinely sweet) love story. There are some sexy times, but nothing to graphic. I had split thoughts on the story though. The anal, practical side that followed the timeline had a hard time believing that all this sweet, swoon worthy and soul encompassing love happened within a few weeks. However, the other side that truly tried to read this book as just a sweet story (timelines be d@mned) did enjoy the blossoming love story of Aria and Henry.

The ending will leave you feeling and saying, ‘Aww’. I loved Aria and Henry individually, but also as a couple. Henry was such a charming, dashing and swoon-worthy character, it was hard not to fall in love with him. Their story, although a little predictable, was still one I was happy to have read. I only wish we got to see more of what happened to the stepmother/stepsister.

 Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished. My name is Elizabeth Kingston and this is where my story begins.

I never thought my life could be so perfect. I have an amazing job owning my own bakery, and a wonderful husband who I love and who loves me back. Never once did I have to worry about anything, at least, not until the texts started coming in. They always begin the same way … numbers that spell my nickname when read upside down.

EXCERPT

It’s closing time and Vikki and I are busy cleaning, so we can get home. My phone beeps with an incoming text and I look down at it and growl. “You can’t be serious.” Staring back at me isn’t a text from Jake, but from Anonymous. Even though I deleted and blocked the number ninety days ago, I still recognize it.

Vikki moves closer, her eyes wide. “What’s going on?”

I show her the text.

Anonymous: 31773?

Brows furrowed, she sits back. “What does that mean?” I turn my phone upside down, so she can see that the number spells out my name. Her eyes widen. “Wow, that’s cool you can type your name with numbers.”

“But not so cool when I don’t know who the person is,” I counter. “About three months ago, I got texts from this exact same person. Whoever it is likes to play games. I’m sick of it and I want them to leave me alone.” Taking a deep breath, I type out a reply.

Me: WHO IS THIS?

Anonymous: Why all the yelling?

I roll my eyes. This is just ridiculous.

Me: I like using all caps.

Anonymous: Don’t stop on my account. So, what have you been up to? Been a while since we talked.

Me: Yeah, it’s because I blocked the number.

Anonymous: Why?

Me: BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!

“What is he saying?” Vikki asks. I show her the texts and her eyes widen. “So, you haven’t talked to him since you blocked the number?”

I think back to when I blocked it and if my calculations are correct, the ninety days was up yesterday. “No, but he has perfect timing. My ninety days ran up yesterday. I might need to run to the cell store and see if they can block it permanently.”

My phone beeps again and a sharp pain settles in my gut. I just want whoever it is to leave me alone.

Anonymous: That hurts. You’ve always been friendly toward me.

Me: Obviously not friendly enough, if you can’t tell me who you are. It’s weird and it makes me uncomfortable. You need to leave me the hell alone. Don’t text, call, or try to contact me in any way. I’m happily married, and I want it to stay that way. GOODBYE!

Heart racing, I log into my cell phone account and before I can block the number, another text comes through.

Anonymous: Sorry 31773 but that’s not going to happen.

The blood in my veins runs cold. Hands shaking, I block his number and my phone drops onto the table. Vikki picks it up and reads the final text, her face growing pale.

“I don’t think this person’s going away.”
