When Autumn Ends is by far my new favorite from Beth Rinyu and I have no idea how to review this story. What I thought was going to be an overall sad feel to a story turned out to be so much more! It was hauntingly beautiful and intense! I hadn’t realized that there would […]

I couldn’t get enough of The Elder! From the interesting complex murders to slow budding relationship I never wanted it to end! Benton King was such an interesting hero and nothing like I expected, he reminded me a bit of Sheldon Cooper, but in a more attractive lawyer way, if that even makes sense. He […]

I had started Ryan’s Bed over a year ago on Wattpad. I thought I knew this story. I didn’t. I thought I had it all figured out. I hadn’t. I thought it was going to be like Fallen Crest. It wasn’t. Ryan’s Bed is a sad story, devastatingly sad premise, but the tone overall didn’t […]

Sara Ney is the queen of Douchiness! I loved The Coaching Hours more than I thought possible. I thoroughly enjoyed each of her books leading up to this one and I really didn’t know how it could get any better. BUT BOOM BABY! She DID IT! We know that the heroine is Coach Donnely’s daughter […]
