I hadn’t planned on reading Breathless originally. When I first read the synopsis, it was. . . interesting, but not enough to make me want to pick it up. But I read and review enough romance that I agreed to share an excerpt on the blog later this month to celebrate the book’s release. Then a copy of Breathless arrived in the mail unexpectedly […]

I was doing so well with the contemporary romances. It’s not a genre I ever expected to find myself reading and yet I found I’ve become addicted to them. . . except this one. Hope at Christmas was just not the book for me. Small town? Check. Sweet romance? Check. Story? Well, it was there but it had problems for me. The dual […]
Disaya finally has it all. The man she fought for is hers at last. Her name is Mrs. Indie Perkins and their daughter is safe. Leah is gone. Life is supposed to be good. So why isn’t she satisfied? Why does life suddenly seem so bitter? YaYa’s Prada Plan had worked but with the riches comes pain.
I was a bit leery about this novella. On the one hand, The Star-Touched Queen just wasn’t working for me. On the other, I loved A Crown of Wishes.

Despite the beautiful writing and descriptive storytelling, I found the story far too slow to keep my attention. It’s safe to say that A Crown of Wishes was the complete opposite, […]
I was really hesitant about writing this review because I know how loved this book is but not every book is for every reader and I struggled with The Star-Touched Queen. Pretty sure I can hear the gasps of surprise from here. Yes, I wasn’t fawning over this book from page 1 and it’s not for lack of trying. This book […]
If I had to describe this book is one word, it would be disappointing. Not bad, not great, just… nothing like what I expected or hoped for. This isn’t my first time reading Hocking’s work. I enjoyed her Trylle books when I was younger (and maybe that was why, I’m not sure as it’s been a while) but all the circus/carnival-y […]
