A Princess for a few weeks …

The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Certainly her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their circle of friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them.

Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington, D.C., with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.

This is the last assignment Hunter would pick. Determination and grit have moved him beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time.

King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now, comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking. Wouldn’t it be delightful if he could give April a Christmas gift she will never forget …

Yes, this is book 5 in the series, I haven’t given up the bad habit of picking up books in the wrong order but that’s ok (in this case). I was looking for some Christmas romance books, just to help me get into a more festive mood. “The Christmas Princess” was free as an e-book on Amazon and about a princess, so why not? Well, there is much more to it than that.

April finds herself in an unpleasant situation, so close to Christmas, when her fiancée’s mother informs her of her immediate termination of the engagement. Struggling to find a place to leave, she accepts a deal with the US Government (yup, you’ve read that right) to pose for a short while as the lost granddaughter of King Jozef of Bariavak. She is thrown in sessions of “princess lessons” and Bariavakian history, held by her detail, Hunter Pierce. The stiff bodyguard takes all his assignments seriously, but especially this one. April’s life appeals to him in a strange way and her kind heart starts to warm his as well.

While I am writing this review, I find myself in a conflicting situation. I enjoyed the story more than I was anticipating, but there were sections that made me cringe a little. I still don’t know what my rating will be…

April is a lovely person. She is kind, with love to offer to those who receive none. Lying to the king does not seem like such a good idea, especially when she realizes he is a nice person, but at least she will make sure his Christmas will be happier. The author created a character easy to like, who brings happiness wherever she goes. There were moments where I thought she lived in a bubble. Her world is full of love, no room for hatred or bad words. I like her bubble…

Hunter is like a wall. Nothing seems to affect him, nothing takes him away from his professional conduct. He serves the country that has given him a future and he does it so well. However, his past cannot be ignored. He will have to make peace with his demons and he will have to stop running.

I loved the Christmas atmosphere and how all the characters were at some point convinced to decorate, to prepare presents and to find time for family. April is the one that brings people together. Now, because I started with book 5, it was a little difficult to know all the side characters and to understand the role each family member had. This didn’t affect my liking the story, but having the full picture would have been better.

We’ve arrived at the things I did not enjoy as much. It took me a while to get into the story. In the beginning, the writing felt difficult and I pushed myself to get through the 30% limit. I whish I had more background on April’s education. She is stuck at a job she does not like, advocating for a vegetable she does not eat (are there such jobs? …having a moment of ignorance now…). Then, there is the romance. I am sorry, but I did not like it. Whenever Hunter acted like a jealous boyfriend, it felt off. The brief love making scenes were not great. It seamed to me the author was shy in writing them and kind of forced herself to spice up their intimacies. There was no need for that at all. I for one, don’t need hot scenes, especially if the book has a cozier and family kind of vibe.

 Cover Review: It definitely gives me the winter chills. I like how the snow globe is the focus point on the cover, given that it has a certain importance to our main characters. It doesn’t give me royal or Christmas vibes but I like it. Also, it keeps consistency with the other books in the series.

Favorite Quote:  

Humility does not suit you. But beware of arrogance

Words spoken by the wise King Jozef to Hunter, they stuck with me for some reason. To be honest, in that particular scene didn’t perceive him as being humble or arrogant. But it’s a nice quote.

I’m still not at peace with the rating, but it would not be ok to increase it either. “The Christmas Princess” was a lovely story, with a beautiful atmosphere and perfect to put you in that holiday spirit. It left me wanting to know the full story of Bravakia (past and future books). As my fist read for the Christmas season, I declare myself satisfied. But despite all the positives, the romance and some elements from our MCs’ past did not stand well with me.

Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any books from the series and what are your reading plans for the rest of the year. Until next time, happy reading!

Book Review: The Duke’s Shotgun Wedding by Stacy Reid

Victorian Era England…

 As far as rash decisions go, it was formidable. But Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne’s will remains strong. If the only way to save her family’s estate and reputation is by aiming a small pistol at the Duke of Calydon, then so be it. For Lady Jocelyn demands satisfaction – and she will have it at any cost. Even if it means demanding the hand of the intense and foreboding Duke himself… But she’s made the first move against a very dangerous opponent… For Sebastian Thornton is no stripling to be trifled with. The lady has played her hand. Now it’s his turn. For Sebastian is in need of a wife. And to find a wife with spirit and fire – even if she means to only marry for his money – would be a great prize indeed. And he intends to thoroughly take his pleasure with her… and demands his own satisfaction in return.

This was an absolute delight! Since I was looking for a short story to keep me entertained for a few hours, Stacy Reid’s novella was the perfect choice.

Lady Jocelyn visits the Duke of Clayton with the intention to negotiate a compensation for her ruined reputation. She is willing to see justice delivered by any means necessary: a duel, or a peaceful approach. The duke listens carefully to the woman’s story and proposes a marriage to atone for his brother’s actions. Surprised by his demeanor, lady Jocelyn prepares for her new life.

There is quite a lot going on. Sebastian Thornton’s past left him with no trust in love. He is not looking for feelings in his marriage with Lady Jocelyn. He just wants an heir. However, our heroine does hope for a good relationship with her husband and she is willing to construct it. I liked a lot how she took initiatives and opened doors for an easier communication with Sebastian and he was wise enough to accept his wife’s proposals.

That’s the best message from this story: communication is the key to a great marriage. Yes, a classic line, but beautifully presented in this historical romance novella. If you want to read more of my thoughts, head over to Moody Melon, where I’ve originally posted the review and let’s chat in the comments.

Until next time, happy reading!

LAURA

Brady and I have been friends for years. But I’m not going to get through my first Hanukkah since my mom’s death without us finally becoming more.

For the past few years, I’ve travelled all over the world, trying to find somewhere to belong. Now, spending a week in Brady’s arms, I’m starting to think I was looking in the wrong place.

But can I convince Brady that this time, I’m not going to walk away?

BRADY

I’ve been in love with Laura since we were fifteen. Spending a week as more than friends is like a Christmas miracle. Except I know she’s not going to hang around and run her mom’s shop.

Part of what I love about Laura is her free spirit. I’d be an ass to ask her to stay just for me.

But how do I let her go, again, now that I know everything I’m giving up?

Lately I seem to have come across OK-ish books. I miss a story that can warm my insights properly and I hoped that “Find Me” by Liz Lincoln would do that for me.

Laura returns home to Milwaukee for the holidays, looking forward to reunite with her best friend Brady. Her mother recently passed away, so she plans on finding some comfort in his arms, at least for a short while. Parallel to the romance, we have all the family affairs that need to be set in order. A quick read, this story has plenty of elements, some good, some not that great.

Let’s start with our female character. Half Jewish, half Catholic, Laura’s childhood was mostly a struggle: to please both traditions for Hanukkah and Christmas and to deal with an alcoholic mother. What I loved about Laura was her free spirit, her passion for traveling in areas where help is needed and to support misfortunate communities. But, as involved as she was in her travels, as superficial she appeared in her relationship with her mom or even with Brady. She didn’t think how her actions would hurt him on the long run. She simply took what she needed.

Brady appears hot and cold in the beginning. The reasons are later clarified, but I was confused for a short while. I like how he tried to bring a little bit or Christmas to a Hanukkah celebration, to comply with both cultures that Laura’s grown into. I see him more as a victim than a hero. He’s a good guy, emotionally tortured by his best friend.

Then we have all the elements surrounding the romance: the religion and family affairs. When it comes to the first, I didn’t feel Laura was attached to one side or the other. I am not criticizing that, I appreciate that at least she tried. Definitely, she is not one to stick with the religious traditions. Her focus is more on the activities she has with her best friend. When it comes to family, clearly hers is a dysfunctional one. One of her aunts is constantly complaining that Laura’s mom was a burden and Laura having no clue about her mother’s dreams or desires.

From plot point of view, nothing much happens. Laura has a few days to spend with her best friend, in bed (a lot). Here and there we get a hint of his feelings, while she is planning her next departure. There is no background on how she is financing said trip (or if I missed that, I apologize) and, what’s more, she seems to be dependent on Brady not only on a personal level, but also professionally, with him helping her understand the shop’s financial position.

Cover Review: Abs…why? I mean, yeah, the sex is quite a lot in this book, but so the festive month of December. The abs are not the center of attention. Are we all women so “abs-obsessed”? Is that how we come off? All the romance reads are focused on abs. The blue in “Find” stands out too much. Definitely, in my opinion, the cover choice could have been better.

The audio version was great. Kate Mitchel had a much challenging role I think, but that’s because Laura’s chapters were more than Brady’s and also because there were more female lines. She was excellent interpreting the aunts and the “loud” family moments. Matthew Holland was great as well, especially when transmitting Brady’s emotions. Both narrators were believable and their voices clean and clear.

All in all, I did not dislike the story, but I cannot say I liked it either. The plot lacks action (or at least I was expecting more) and the main characters threw me off at times. It was a quick read though.

About The Author lizlincoln

Liz has been concocting stories as long as she can remember, and from the beginning they involved two people falling in love.

When she’s not writing, she spends her time rooting for the UW Badgers and the Green Bay Packers (or yearning for the return of football season), cross-stitching and embroidering sassy sayings or nerdy characters (Wonder Woman is her favorite), and drinking too much Diet Coke.

She lives in Milwaukee, WI, with her husband, two kids, three cats, and a turtle.

Mid-Week Reads – December 21st 2022

midweekreads

What’s up, Wednesday people? How are you all doing in this magical week? I trust that you’ve already planned your presents and that you’re trying to avoid as much as possible the end of the year rush. I’m trying, without success, but I think it’s part of the magic these days.

It’s not even Christmas Eve and I’ve already received so many gifts. We’ve had two Secret Santa events that turned out to be lots of fun, as it was expected from the prior years. My colleagues seem to be obsessed to find out who their Secret Santa was. But what’s the point? It’s supposed to be a secret, right? I don’t want to know who mine was, it takes the fun out of it. How are you handling the whole Secret Santa stuff?

Other than this, my week has been very productive so far. I’ve finished “It Ends with Us” by Colleen Hoover (cried like no other) and I am close to finishing two other books: “In a Holidaze” by Christina Lauren and “Santa’s Christmas Wish” by Maggie Tideswell. Both need to be completed by Friday noon, so that I can start my weekend reading list. I’ll tell you more about it at the end of this week, when hopefully I will have my titles set.

That’s my update for today, stick around for a review coming up later 🙂 See you in the next article!

Weekly Quote #25

20200503_093802.jpg

I haven’t read any book by Colleen Hover since “Slammed” #1 (here’s my review, from 2016). “Slammed” was published in 2012. This is my one and only book that I’ve read so far by her. I absolutely adored this book. I think it was the first review I’ve ever written, probably not the first I’ve published. You may ask yourselves why I haven’t kept up with her writing (or you may not ask yourselves this, but I’m gonna tell ya still).  Well, her books are so emotional, so deep and so full of meaning. It takes certain state of mind to properly enjoy them or to even write a decent review.

So I’m starting to catch up on her stories. Not because I’m in my right state of mind (hey, you have to be crazy to keep a job like mine and a book blog and learn to sew a decent garment for a potential sewing business), but because I’m behind. I’m behind with my reading. I need to catch up.

Ok, enough chit-chat. Today’s quote is from “It Ends With Us” by none other than Colleen Hoover! For those of you outside of the romance reader’s community (Hello, welcome, I’m Lilly), she’s awesome! I’m only in the beginning; there are tons of amazing quotes still to come.

There is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.

I agree… We are all just people. We do what we can. We take the best decisions we can. They don’t have to be great. But who knows what the outcome would be? I always say our brains are not wired to take bad decisions intentionally. At some point, something seemed all right, which is why we took said decision. If, on the short or long run, it proves to be a bad one, that’s a bummer. We fix it (or take the pain, shut up, move on).

One week till Christmas, enjoy 🙂

Book Review: Junk Mail by Kendall Ryan

It all started with a sexy selfie.

Texted to the wrong number.

Oops.

Not my finest moment — but I have nothing to be ashamed of.

She thought I was no better, and I quote, than the knuckle-dragging douche-bags she was never dating again.

It was a stupid dare from a girl I’d met online, but since she’d given me a fake number, I didn’t feel bad that my interests were suddenly focused elsewhere — on the fiery and sharp-tongued, Peyton that I found myself sparring with over text for the rest of the evening.

The following day, my case of mistaken identity came back to bite me in the banana.

When I strolled into the office, I was introduced to Peyton as the new client I needed to win over. The Peyton, in case you’re not tracking.

And let’s just say she had my full attention.

Brains? Check.

Beauty? Oh yeah.

And the best part? She hated me on sight.

Dear God, do I love a challenge.

Let the games begin.

There are a few authors which are my “go-to” if I want to pass a good time or if I am looking for a book to make me feel good. Kendall Ryan is one of those authors. Her books always reach my heart and “Junk Mail” was supposed to be perfect for a one day read. I listened to the audiobook on Scribd and I took such a wise decision.

Ok, the action starts with our hero sending a picture of his intimate parts to the wrong number. He and the heroine clarify the incident, all is fine. They exchange pleasantries and end the night on a friendly tone, both thinking they will not meet in person. Until the next day, that is.

Josh Hanson is the co-owner of Wine o’Clock, a chain of luxurious wine boutiques with which Peyton hopes to close a deal for her subscription box. The contract will be beneficial for both brands, so a successful collaboration is more than needed. Imagine their surprise when they realize that the message exchange from one night ago was between the two of them and none can deny the attraction. But there seems to be no room for inappropriate behavior, with the professional aspects between them. It’s a romance gradually increasing, with both characters trying to deny their feelings.

But hey, on the plus side, she hasn’t seen the boys, just their leader.

On the good side, there are some very hot moments, Josh is a decent guy, focused on his career and growing his business and Peyton is fully invested in her subscription boxes. Her grandmother is a charm, as she sees right through Jason and pushes her niece to care for her heart as much as she cares for her work. Unfortunately, these positive aspects are not enough. The ones I did not enjoy are more, which is why my rating will not be that great.

Firstly, she seems to be too caught up in the guy’s junk pic. I had the feeling she was hooked only by seeing it and it threw me off a bit. Secondly, for all the talk about keeping it professionally, they sure didn’t. Every time they crossed the line they regretted it and took a step back. And that’s ok, just that it happened so many times. The action is a bit predictable and some plot elements felt forced. The characters were flat, without any development.

Picking up the audio version was what helped me finish it. Joe Arden and Savannah Peachwood were great and I would not have expected anything different. Their interpretation is the reason I am increasing my rating a little bit.

Cover Review: I understand that the story starts from the guy and his parts and I can accept as well that romance books have guys on the cover (mostly at least). But in this case, I cannot relate to it. I cannot see the connection between the cover and the story. Why not her? Why not both of them? Or a mobile phone, or a subscription box? The colors are nice though…

I am really sorry! I wish could have enjoyed it more. Kendall Ryan is an excellent writer and I know for sure this book does not define her. I am giving “Junk Mail” 2.5 stars. It was a bit boring, a bit forced and poor in character development. Oh, by the way, there is no hate to love here. The blurb is misleading.  

3 stars

Allie Carmichael is dating the wrong kind of man. To help Allie out of her dating rut, Allie’s sister, Cassie, challenges her to date 26 new men, all that have 26 different careers—one for every letter of the alphabet. 
 
When Eric’s neighbor, Allie, asks him for help with her new dating challenge, he’s reluctant to get involved. Mostly because he’d really like Allie to fall in love with him. She’s determined to finish out her dating challenge, but he’s a veterinarian. And V is at the end of the alphabet. 
 
Can Eric persuade Allie to abandon the list and see him as something more than just her best friend?

This is one of the best novellas I have read. Usually, I stay away from short books, mostly because the action happens very quick and I don’t have time to get used to the characters or to learn their stories. I admit that I am a bit scared of short stories. However, “The Dating Game” was a very pleasant surprise. The pace is perfect, we have enough background to understand who our characters are and we have enough action to become captivated.

Allie accepts her sister’s challenge to date outside her comfort zone, but she has to date guys with professions starting with each letter of the alphabet. She already covered “A”, for attorney. She has to find the rest. Since her friend and neighbor Eric is the guy who knows almost everybody in town, she asks for his support. Little does she know that Eric wants more than friendship between them. Too bad he’s a vet and has to wait an entire list of other guys until Allie can date him.  

What I mostly liked about this book is how comfortable it feels. The writing, while simple and easy, gave a cozy feeling and made me enjoy it even more. I had fun reading it and I felt every struggle our main characters went through.

Allie wants to find her special someone, a guy that can understand her commitment to her job, a guy that can be both polite and fun, good looking and intelligent, preferably not a dog owner. Eric wants to win Allie’s heart, but she must accept his two dogs Daisy and Bo. Slowly, he devises a plan and he counts on his two four-leg friends to help.

Cover Review: I like the colors and the fun and crazy that this cover depicts. The illustration works perfectly with the story. It’s a great choice.

Favorite Quote: “I ran because kissing Eric felt like finding my forever. And that is utterly terrifying.” Read more of my thoughts about this quote in my Weekly Quote article.

All in all, this was a beautiful book and my expectations were met almost completely. I would have liked to have a bit more fun during Allie’s blind dates, which is why I am not awarding my full 5 stars. Otherwise, I do encourage you to try it and let me know what you think about it.

Until next time, happy reading 😊

AFTER A RECENT MOVE to Charleston, SC I’m learning to love the beach as much as I love the North Carolina mountains where I grew up. It’s a little hotter here in the low country, but I’m embracing the heat and all that comes with it. I love to spend time outdoors with my husband, Josh, our six children, and a growing assortment of pets. But also? I love hanging out at home with a great movie or a favorite book and eating delicious food that, when I’m lucky, I didn’t have to prepare myself.

Writing for a Magazine

Happy Tuesday!!!

I hope you have all started the week amazingly well and if not, there is still time to make the most of it! I have an amazing news to share with you today: I have been invited to write for an online magazine!!! This is so exciting!

One of the first authors that took a chance with me and my blog to word a review for her book, Julie Barris, recently published her online magazine called Moody Melon. She invited me to write as a permanent columnist. I am so excited and so scared at the same time. I hope to be able to provide meaningful content… and keep the deadlines!

Moody Melon is a magazine all about love. Read about breakups, make up lines, comfort food when your heart is aching and love advice. There is plenty of content published every day, so make sure you visit often. Reviews for romance books are posted twice per week, just in case you were wondering 😉

That’s my news for today, I wish you all an amazing rest of the week!

Weekly Quote #24

Hey all,

It has been quite a while. I hope it won’t take that long to my next article again. I won’t start by ,asking excuses, it’s just how life has been. On the good side, there is someone out there who keeps pushing for me to write. The Universe and The Powers That Be keep telling me that this is what I should do. So here I am, continuing the LBW journey.

This week’s quote is from a book by Brenna Jacobs, called “The Dating Game”:


I ran because kissing Eric felt like finding my forever.
And that is utterly terrifying.

This is a novella of under 70 pages, a quick, easy and fun read. Lately I’ve been travelling a lot and I was looking for something fast to read during one of my 3 hour flights. I will tell you more in my next article, where I’ll also reveal something very exciting that happened to me last week.

Ok, back to our quote. It’s amazing how one can get scared when faced with the possibility of accomplishing something. In this case, Allie, our main character, realises that Eric may be the one she’s been looking for. Eric may be her partner for life. That is scary. I mean, you fell the 100%, but are you really ready? There are many of us out there (boys, girls, men, women) who want to enjoy life as much as possible before this commitment. The problem appears when you want to have fun, but not with the one who seems to be your soulmate. What do you do then? The 100% becomes fuzzy.

Of course, that’s not how the story is between our main characters. But this quote made me think. Yeah, I tend to twist words into millions of meanings.

Did you read something spectacular these days? Is there a quote that stuck with you? Write it down in the comments below and let’s chat 🙂

Until next time, happy reading !

Weekly Quote #23

As I was mentioning in a prior article even if I have not managed to review much of the books I’ve read, I did read! (haha, imagine that!). Aaaaaand I am late to the Tahereh Mafi party. Yup, I am reading the Shatter Me series. I’ve finished book 1 in July and now I am getting through the second.  

In the beginning, it was all a bit confusing There are still things that need to be uncovered. I’m not getting into a full review now (although, I’d better start writing my review for Shatter Me), but I want to share with you a quote that felt deep somehow. There are plenty of other amazing quotes in these books so far, but this one just stuck there:  

“Then what’s happening right now? Because something is happening right now and it doesn’t feel okay,” he says, his voice catching. “It doesn’t feel okay, Juliette, it feels like the opposite of whatever the hell okay is and I really just want to hold you-“ 

The way Tahereh managed to convey the desperation, the angst and the fear is just fantastic. I could feel it! Oh I cannot wait to finish this book. I’m now on page 112 of book 2, I own already book 3 and I need to get my hands on book 4 (yeah, yeah, shame me! I will buy it soon, okay?!) 

I hope you’re having an amazing start of the week. In my small corner of the world has finally started raining, although it will stop in 5 minutes probably…. Let me know in the comments below if you liked Shatter Me and what’s your opinion of book 1. Feel free to leave links to your reviews as long as they don’t contain spoilers. I’m interested to discuss them with you guys. 

Until next time, Happy Reading!
