Review: Sketch

Sketch by Laramie Briscoe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***** April's 5 Star Review *****
I received Sketch written by Laramie Briscoe from Dreams and Screams Bookaholic for an honest review
My name is Devin, but everybody calls me Sketch. I opened my own tattoo shop two years ago, and I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m going to be able to give my wife everything she’s ever wanted. I’m going to be able to take time off and spend a day a week with her. In fact, tonight, I stopped and grabbed some wine, got her flowers, and those chocolates she likes.
What I wasn’t prepared for was to be met at the front door by her carrying her stuff out.
She loves me, but she’s not in love with me anymore. What kind of excuse is that? I’ve left her alone too often, I’ve been completely focused on one goal, and apparently she’s sick of waiting.
So while I was busy making a better life for us, she was under the impression I was leaving her lonely. I know one day she’ll see what I’ve been d…

Review: Sacrifice of Love

Sacrifice of Love by S.M. Stryker
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Richard Stone devoted his life to work and family. When his parents died tragically, the life he'd known came crashing down, causing him to spiral out of control. That is until the postcard came.
Nicole House was graduating college when the unthinkable happened. Brutally attacked, her life was forever changed. Leaving her family, dream job and the only life she knew behind, she moved, hoping she could escape her attacker and she shame that fateful night left her with.
Two people who Never Expected Love are brought together.

But will the demons secrets and fears of their past stop them from their future?

This one is probably my favorite one of hers. You can feel the emotion of everything Richard and Nicole went through and the emotion that SM put into this book.

Sacrifice of Love is an amazing love story filled with kind and loving people who's lives have…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Silicon Valley's rougher than it looks Being a scientist gives Lauren Taylor a purpose in life. At twenty-five, she's the CEO of a billion-dollar biomedical company, Paragon Laboratories.

Her overwhelming attraction to Gabriel Betts, the gorgeous and brilliant CEO of another Silicon Valley startup.

Billionaire Gabriel Betts is a successful scientist in his own right. He's made his way in the world by being an early adopter and never losing focus. Captivated by Lauren's brilliance and unselfconscious beauty, he's determined to win the reclusive female CEO over.

Loved everything about this book. …

Daniel Baldessari is the gorgeous, sexy, powerful dream man who takes me into white hot ecstasy.

It sounds cheesy, but after what happened, he's also my hero, a word I’ve never used about anyone before.

But there's something he's hiding, some secret I don't understand.

I'm afraid it will consume us both.

Unless I find the strength to intervene.

Blurb
Sometimes all that you can do is move on...

Even when you're not ready. Even when you're forced into it.

After being thousands of miles apart, neither one can deny the love that is still in their hearts. But sometimes, people don't see what's right in front them, and refuse to fight for what they want, even when it's worth fighting for.

When life-altering circumstances finally thrust them back together and the truth comes barreling forth, they are forced to confront the truth--a truth so shattering that it might just be the beginning of the end all over again.

Love can get rocky and uncertain--downright hard at times. It's a hard lesson to learn, but a lesson we all have to learn in the end.

Can these two lost and grief-stricken souls find a way to smooth out the jagged edges and reach an easy, even rhythm?

Review: I Am Atlas by Ella Emerson

I Am Atlas by Ella Emerson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***April's Review***
5 Star
I received I am Atlas from Dreams and Screams Bookaholics for an honest review

Atlas is a powerful, wealthy, wildly handsome man. He has it all a successful company, a stunning penthouse, and all the women and fun he could want that is until Gwen walks in. With Gwen at his side he knows he can't lose. But what if she isn't who he thought she was? What if nothing is as it seems? Will he lose everything? How far is one man willing to go for the woman he loves?

This book is full of laughter and full of love. Oh yea did I mention the twist and I don't mean a little twist. I had to read it twice because I didn't see it coming the first time around. The love that Atlas and Gwen have is awesome. So if you hadn't read it yet then you must. It can be read by itself. It is part of the PLAYING GOD series and some of the characters will appear in JUST AN ECHO releasing soon.
