Loving You (Love Wanted in Texas Book 6)

Before I start my review on this book I do want to note that this can be and was read as a stand alone.  There are other books in the series, however they are the parents, siblings, etc love stories and can be read separately.

With that being said, Loving You (Wanted in Texas Book 6) by Kelly Elliott gets 3 out of 5 stars from me.

This is your typical romance book, maybe with the exception that both characters Taylor and Jase have feelings for each other at the same time.  Taylor is your girl next door, saving herself for her someone special, who she obviously wants to be Jase. Jase is your popular playboy who thinks he’s not good enough for Taylor and likes to sleep around.

Of course their story starts off with them together and then apart.  And will distance keep them away from each other?

This was a pretty good story and one I think some might enjoy. It wasn’t one of my favorites though.

Easy Magic (The Boudreaux Series).

Easy Magic (The Boudreaux Series) By Kristen Proby.

This is Beau’s story, the oldest Boudreaux of 6 siblings (they each have a book).  The book didn’t really go over his background, if you read the other books you know he is a partner with two of his other siblings, Eli and Van in their boating company.  Instead the story mainly focuses on his love interests Mallorys background.

Mallory is a physcic. She sees the dead and when she touches people she knows their history and what their feeling, except for Beau. Beau, just makes her feel calm. 

Mallory’s grandma was also a physcic, but her abilities were slightly different and she used those abilities to help people and in the end, it killed her.  This same thing is out to get Mallory, it attacks her when she is at a senacè with the girls and again when she’s visiting her grandma’s grave. Will it get her?

I’m not sure if I loved or hated this story for not having a huge relationship bump in the road. But, it’s still worth reading and still worth finding out what happens to Mallory and in what way it does effect her and Beau.

This was a good story, but I don’t think it was as good as the first two. It did hold my attention though.  I do recommend you read it to find out what the disc is, what happens to Nat and what happens between Avery and Rafe.

Beautifully Damaged and Forgotten.

Hello again everyone!  My first review back will be a two for one. I just finished reading Beautifully Forgotton By L.A. Fiore which is the second book in the Beautifully Damaged series.  You can read it as a stand alone, but I think it is better read as a series as there are things in the second book that you will only under stand if you read the first book.  So without further ado…

Beautifully Damaged is the story of Trace Montgomery a wealthy man who comes from a poor up bringing and Ember Walsh who is living in New York trying to become a writer.  While out at a club one night Ember finds herself in some trouble and Trace comes to her rescue, but Trace doesn’t want anything to do with her.

Trace comes from a family where is father did despicable things and his mother was not blind to them, but his father made sure she couldn’t do anything to help him.  As a result Trace ended up in an Orphanage and his sister ended up in a group home.

Ember is raised by her father as her mother was killed by a hit and run driver.  And you will never believe who the driver was…She now lives with her childhood friend who is dating a loser named Todd who has completely changed her.

You will want to read Beautifully Damaged to see how Trace and Ember’s past brought them together. It truly is a good story.

Beautifully Forgotton is the story of Lucien and Darcy.  Lucien was dropped off at the same Orphanage as Trace at the age of two, he was raised by one of the nuns, Sister Anne and had come to think of her as his mother, he even took her last name, Black.  When he was 16 a girl came in, Darcy MacBride, she was 14 and she changed his world.

When Lucien leaves the Orphanage he does some bad things to become the man he will be, but that’s what he becomes, a man, a wealthy man.

What made Darcy choose not to follow Lucien.  That is the question in Beautifully Forgotton.  We learn that she was pregnant and a man came and convinced her that Lucien would have been better off without her.  The questions were, who was the man, why did he come?

Read Beautifully Forgotton and find out what happened with Darcy’s pregnancy, it’s a good one.  Also, Todd’s back, find out how he’s involved.  You’ll also be updated on Trace and Ember, because duh, besties.

The Upside Of Love.

I give The Upside Of Love ( The Love Series 2) By Sandi Lynn 3 out of 4 stars.

This book picks up where the first book left off. Lily and Luke are madly in love. But, remember in book 1 when Lily gave her honeymoon tickets away to the cute couple she seen?  And she took a picture of them? Turns out that was Luke and Callie and Luke and Lily didnt remember each other. It was on the way home from that trip that Luke and Callie were in the accident and Callie died.

When Luke finds the picture he blames Lily for Callies death and this sets the tone of the book.  

This book is pretty much Luke trying to win Lily back as he didn’t mean what he said. But because Lily really blames herself for the accident she won’t talk to Luke about the argument.

So, will Lily and Luke talk? You’ll have to read to find out.
