Burning for her Kiss by Sherri Hayes

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. 
And Readers Isle- Escaping reality in fiction.

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.* 

This is a BDSM book and I wasn’t quite sure which way the author was going to take with this story. Some are mainly about sex. Some have a story line and sex.  This book has an incredible story line with some sex.  I was incredibly pleasantly surprised. The author did a great job writing the story and I was enlightened a bit. 
Who can’t love a sexy, sweet, caring fire fighter?! Let’s add a small restaurant owner who knows her way around a kitchen to make some yummy sounding food. Then let’s add a little kink into the story. Oh, I forgot to add that the baker, Beth, is the dom and the firefighter, Drew, is the sub. That’s got to lead to one hot story.  If that’s what you’re thinking then you are absolutely positively correct!!!  
This story is enjoyable from the beginning to the end.  It’s sad in parts when you are learning about Beth’s past and might make you want to yell at the book a bit for the man who broke her heart. Drew is a sweet, hot, sexy, loving young man. His character was written so perfect. I think the part that he wants to relinquish the control he has all day at work in the bedroom and have a female control him is quite interesting and is intriguing to say the least. Honestly, that part makes him even sexier. 
Descriptions! Oh the author is really great about using amazing description throughout the entire story. I think the way she has written the story and the way she describes each scene make it so easy to dive in and really enjoy the story. I really don’t think you could ask for any better detailing to the story on an understanding and visualization level.  

Rating : 5/5 (Very Good)

Thanks & Happy Reading!

Broken Dreams By: Cassidy K. O’Connor **Review By Amy

*I received a copy of this book from Wickedly Innocent Promotions in exchange for a fair and honest review.* 
Isabelle is supposed to graduate highschool and move on to Julliard. Ian plans on graduating high school and enlisting in the army for four years then attending college.  Fate has different plans. Connor, Ian’s best friend, steps in during the hardest time in everyone’s life. What is meant to happen in the future?  Will it be what anyone wants or will it be up to fate? 
This book is a roller coaster of emotion, from the first page to the last page.  There are ups, downs, and in-betweens.  Your heart will break, your heart will stop, and your heart will swell with pride.  This is one of those books that has more emotions than you will want to handle at one time, but the torture is absolutely worth it.  This book is perfect. It amazes me how well the author wrote the story and how well she was able to express the emotions.  
The descriptions and details that the author worked into this story were amazing. At times, it was a little too graphic and at times those intense details made me fall that much deeper into the story.  It’s a double edged sword of detail and description that make this book what it is.  There was never a second guess as to how to picture the scenery or the severity of the scene. At one scene she describes a house and these details were so perfect I pictured the house without any trouble and found myself jealous of characters in a book.  
This is a hard read at times and I’m not a Veteran. I think it would be incredibly hard for a Veteran to read but if you are a veteran and you are able to read the book, I hope the author made you proud with the way she wrote it. As a civilian, it opens your eyes a little bit to experience the trauma one might feel. It also makes me extremely grateful and thankful for the men and women who give their lives for us on a daily basis.  
I could go on and on about this book, but I won’t. I will ask that you pick up a copy of this book today. It is worth every single penny! 

Rating 5/5 
Find it on,

Thanks & Happy reading!

Bring Me Home (Home is Where the Heat Is Book 1) By: Candi Wall ** Review by Amy

**Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Goddess Fish Promotions in exchange for a fair and honest review** 

Miya Jackson is pretending that her life is perfect in New York. She has the perfect job and great friends.  The only problem is that she realizes that she is utterly and completely miserable in New York and happy in Dead End, TX when she comes home for her sister’s wedding.  Can she face Shawn again after four years of being apart? Is there still love between them? Will she believe what Shawn has to say? 

This was a decent read.  It had a really good story line and idea but I found parts of the story dragging.  I think that it drug for me because the description wasn’t incredible. That being said, this was a fun story.  It’s a story that I think so many people could relate to as something they or someone they know have gone through.  I love reading about realistic story ideas as it makes it much more fun to read.  I enjoyed Miya’s character as we are very similar and her character was fun to read. She gave quite a laugh during a few parts of the story.  There were also a few times that your heart wanted to break for her and for what she went through. 

Overall, I would say that this was a good story. I’d suggest to give it a chance and read it. 

Rating: 4/5 

Thanks & Happy Reading!

Bound to Survive By Sharon Gibbs **Review By Amy

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. 
And Readers Isle- Escaping Reality in Fiction!

4/5 (Very Good) 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. 
Wow, this book packs some incredible detail with an incredibly full cast!  
This story is very well written and incredibly detail oriented. I don’t think that you could read this book and come away and say that you couldn’t visualize the scenes or the people. There was some depth to the story line and it was very well thought out.  
This was a longer story which I did enjoy. In some books that are part of a series, the story line is drawn out between multiple books when it could have been done in fewer books. This is definitely not the case with this author. She writes a full story in the first book of her series. It isn’t full of filler material but full of a deep story with a great background story building you up for the current story. 
There was so much going on in this story and so much detail I couldn’t get fully engrossed in the book unless my house was quiet and it allowed me to get lost in the book. This is a good and bad thing. The good part is that detail and action make for a great story. The bad is that my house is rarely ever quiet with two kids, a dog, and a husband. I tried to read during the day and found myself often getting distracted or losing the story plot. When I was in quiet I was able to submerse myself into the story and really loved it.  
I prefer a story that allows me to get lost no matter my surroundings, however, I wouldn’t discount this story or this author. She does great work! 

Rating:: 4/5 (Very Good) 

Thanks & Happy Reading!
