Book Review! THE MAGIC SERIES: BOX SET by: Coralie Moss

Visit Salt Spring Island in the Salish Sea, where caretakers of the apples of immortality are vanishing. The earth witch charged with protecting the orchards is on the cusp of losing her magic. And the druid investigating crimes of the magical kind is carrying deadly secrets.

Calliope Jones, novice witch and single mom, must protect her family while fulfilling the mission she never signed up for: to fix the system of magical replenishment that broke long before she was born.

But first she has to survive her Blood Ceremony and a night inside the persnickety Mother Tree; try to keep her sons–and their magic–from blowing up; and save Tanner Marechal from the annoyingly persistent hellion capable of breaking him completely.

Hello my lovelies! Once again I’ve managed to bring you a story (well, technically speaking, in this case storIES) that are completely unable to be classified.

Book Review! TWIN BAY CHRISTMAS: FINALLY FAMILY

So Christmas has passed for many who celebrate it and is yet to come for those who follow Orthodox traditions, but it’s hailed a return to reality for me. What better way to restart my book reviews than with a sweet little holiday novella?

If you know anything about me, I love the swoon worthy happily ever after that come along with romance, but I ESPECIALLY love epilogues that give us that extra little happy after the happily ever after.

So what I’m saying is: basically this book is made for me. Twin Bay Christmas: Finally Family follows all the complex and endearing characters we met in Held & Hidden and gives them a little extra holiday happy.

When her long-distance teaching buddy goes on maternity leave, New York City native Leyla Harraq, temporarily transplants to a sleepy beach town on the West Coast to manage her friend’s Hot Yoga studio. But the yogini’s brash spunk leads to an immediate social gaffe when she insults her new landlord, carpenter Adam Fields, and must backpedal to save face.

Watching Adam wallow in solitary confinement after a brutal break-up will never do. Motivated by her own need for physical contact, Leyla happily offers herself as the perfect rebound. She’ll be gone in a couple of months, no one has to know, and she can wipe his ex right out of his mind… and body. After all, if anyone knows how to turn up the heat, it’s her.

But when the studio owner realizes she can’t return to teaching full-time and asks Leyla to stay, the fish-out-of-water must make a choice. Can she abandon her commitment-free lifestyle for small town drama and a chance at love with a hunky hammer wielding man?

Book Review! BEHIND THE GLASS by: Kristen Morgen

46003392._SY475_

Rebecca Jordan’s life is simple, disciplined, and uncomplicated, at least on the surface. Then she meets a handsome stranger/secret admirer named Michael Vale one fateful late night at a bookstore café. As a focused but struggling photographer with a passion for art, her outwardly happy world is turned upside down during this life-changing encounter when she quickly realizes she has met her soul mate. The undeniable attraction between them and their intense, immediate connection seem picture perfect as they discuss the shop’s local artwork, until Rebecca abruptly ends the chance meeting with no explanation.

Betraying Brett, her loyal, loving boyfriend, is something Rebecca can never bring herself to do. Driven by a strong moral code and molded by divorced parents and a tumultuous childhood, she struggles to stay away from Michael, but fate and circumstance intervene, bringing them back together time and time again. As much as she resists, there is no denying her true feelings for him and the simple fact that Michael understands her in a way Brett never has. Michael proves to be everything she’s ever wanted, but remains just out of her reach.

Behind the Glass tells the story of Michael and Rebecca’s extraordinary love and the many unconventional stages their relationship must go through. Their morals and their faith in true love and in each other will be put to the test as they learn that meeting one’s soul mate does not come without obstacles.

Hello there my lovelies! I have another fabulous little book review for you today, so let’s dive in!

Wow, this is such a decadent read. Straight off the bat I was completely consumed into Rebecca’s world. Ms. Morgen is a master of creating rich descriptions and fabulous world building that puts you smack in the middle of everything. It’s the first time in a while that I was walking in the land of the characters in the first five pages.

Not only were the descriptions lush and beautiful, but so were the emotions. I felt every tug and pull as Rebecca and Michael walked their path to learning more about each other and falling in love.

But as always, it isn’t that simple. Rebecca is already in a relationship and both Michael and Rebecca have a spot on moral compass that doesn’t allow for exploring their feelings for each other while Rebecca is still attached (but not married, this is important to note!) to another man. But is Rebecca willing to give up the comfort of her relationship with Brett to take a chance with Michael.

The ending was as fulfilling as the story itself and I’d love to read more from this author. Her craft is absolutely spot on and so engaging. If you enjoy the heartwarming movies on Hallmark that make you swoon and smile and happy sigh, you need to read Behind The Glass.
