Dear Everly by Lobdon Casey and Jaxson Kidman–review

Dear Everly is by far the best writing that the Casey/Kidman duo have done, thus far. This book is about Emily, Jake and Sadie.

Emily is relocating and attempting to start over in life. She has been a caretaker to her grandmother due to her recent decline in health. After her grandmother passes away, she has no one and feels lost. She is excited to have a new house, but questions if it is home. While returning to her career of writing poetry, she also starts a part time job at a daycare. Emily is a saint. She is kind, caring and is always friendly with people she comes across. Despite having gone through numerous hard times, she still is optimistic towards the idea of love and when she feels it she is determined to not let go of it.

Jake is a wonderful hero. He is a mechanic by trade and co-owns the garage he works at. Besides being a mechanic, he is a father to an extremely intelligent and lovable four-year-old, Sadie. She is adorable, yet innocent and steals the scene at times. Jack and Sadie have suffered a huge and devastating loss in their life. Together they are trudging through their daily existence. Jake feels an extreme amount of pressure weighing down on his shoulders.

Dear Everly is a hauntingly beautiful, gut-wrenching, heart breaking and heartwarming story. Part of this story is beautifully expressed through letters written to Jake’s deceased wife. As a reader, I truly felt the struggle of a man forever in love with his wife, yet trying to move on as well.

Jake and Emily together took you on an emotional roller coaster. You truly feel what they are feeling throughout the whole book. There is no way you can’t read this book and not get choked up at some point.

Rating: Excellent, excellent book. 5 Stars (Plus) without a doubt.

Twin Savage by Sunniva Dee–Review

Twin Savage (Porn Star Boyfriends, #2)Twin Savage by Sunniva Dee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Genius! Mother Crunkin Genius! (mic drop) 😉 Review to follow after I let this digest a bit. OMG, favorite book, so far!

UPDATED REVIEW:
Sunniva Dee is brilliant when it comes to writing a book. Her hugely effective use of hidden meaning, double meaning and writing parallels is flipping fantastic! After reading Twin Savage, she is definitely one of my instant and do not hesitate one click authors!

Twin Savage is written so well that you lose sight of the fact that it is part of the ‘Porn Star Boyfriend’ series. It is SO much more than a guy being a porn star. She writes these characters with so much depth, so much emotion that you honestly feel as if you’re part of the group and storyline. It just sucks you in (on such a good way). There was no ‘fluff’ in this porn star book (pardon the pun.)

Her symbolism and ability to switch between colloquial and educated verbiage is utterly outstanding! Besides reading a fantastic book, I learned a thing or two. Kudos to Miss Dee for doing her research on topics and characters discussed.

I think in modern day western culture it is considered taboo to talk about one girl with seven guys, but this is written so well that you can slip into Geneva’s shoes as she explores other cultures and customs related to grief.

Geneva is an anthropology PhD student who had big plans to travel to Africa and the Amazon with her fiancee, Julian. Unfortunately, she finds herself a widow before they even get to the alter. For the past six years, she has lived at ‘the Queen’ with Julian and seven other guys (all as scrumptious and delicious as the next). One of the roommates is Julian’s twin brother, Luka.

Luka is a medical student who is about to enter his last semester before residency. In order to get through med school without loans, he is in fact a porn star god. However, there is so much behind his pretty exterior that you truly must read the book to see what makes him tick and why he does what he does. When I found out, it made him so much more real and freaking human. (Insert sigh).

Geneva and Luka are truly just incredible together. It’s amazing to read about the full transformation of a relationship and to be able to see parallels within your own life or something you might have read (I.e. how a relationship should work versus how they do work). There are ups and downs, misunderstandings, conflict, among other issues.

Twin Savage is a scintillating, hot and sexy, angsty romantic comedic drama. PLEASE do yourselves a favor and one-click this book. It is utterly fantastic!

“I love you, Geneva. You love me. So why wouldn’t it be us?”
“It should be us, right?”
“I think it has to be us.”

Moment of silence, please for the end of a series–Fallen Crest Forever by Tijan

Fallen Crest Forever (Fallen Crest Series Book 7) by [Tijan] Oh, man, where do I start? I LOVED the whole Fallen Crest series. Tijan seems to have this magical ability to create a whole other world that sucks you in.

 After seven books in the series, there is a lot of intensified pressure for a stellar final book. Well, there’s good news and bad news. Everybody HATES bad news so let’s start there. Firstly, Fallen Crest is done, over, kaput. Dang, where am I going to get my Tijan drama now. I hope she comes out with something quick! Secondly, speaking of drama, FCF seemed to have an excessive amount of it, that I’m not sure fit it (book/story-line) or needed to be there. There was Sam and Mason, Sam and some of her cross-country teammates, Sam and her mom as well as Mason’s mom. Needless to say, Sam had a ton of drama throughout this book.  I was saddened that I wasn’t feeling the true Sam/Mason emotional connection as part of the ‘threesome fearsome’. Lastly, I wanted more wedding and more closure with Logan/Tate and Nate.

So, here’s the good news. It’s still Tijan, her writing is phenomenal and I devoured the book all at once. I suffered the biggest book hangover once I was done and it seemed to take me forever to come to some sort of peace, that this second family of mine is done. Tijan is just one of those ‘one click’ authors for me and I love her writing.  Despite wanting more out of this book, I will still give it 5.0 stars, because it was that good.  Who knows, maybe we’ll get a quick novella somewhere down the line as an extended epilogue. What do you think?

5 stars
