Jennifer’s review of How We Fall by Melissa Toppen

Author: Melissa Toppen

Title: How We Fall

Genre: Contemporary romance, second-chance romance, friends to lovers

Stars: 5🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍

For me, this is one of the best stories of 2017 so far!  This is a beautifully written friends to lovers second chance story. The main characters are best friends growing up. Cole leaves for college and they don’t see each other for the next six years until tragedy brings them back together. Between the story and the characters, I was lost myself in the pages of this book. I read straight through and didn’t come up for air until I was finished. I absolutely love Melissa Toppen! This book is now my favorite of hers ( I love it even more than Taming Lo)! I think this is a definite must read for everyone who loves love!

Ashley’s 5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review

Book: The Ghost in the Mirror 

Author: Faith Gibson 

Release Date: September 29, 2016

Genre: M/M, Paranormal, Horror 

Series: Samuel Dexter #1

Stars: 5

     This combines the 2 genres that I love most, paranormal and M/M. Ms. Gibson does this phenomenally!! I’m so excited to see how this series progresses. 

 

       Samuel (Dex) Dexter A.K.A Ghost is a Marine that is involved in a horrible accident leaving him with no memories. Thankfully his Grams is there to fill in some of the blanks of his past for him, but she doesn’t want to influence him so she doesn’t give him his whole past. He’s having “flashbacks” but he doesn’t know if it’s really suppressed memories something he wishes. Once he’s back in Alabama on his Grams farm he starts questioning whether he likes men or women, what his favorite foods are and what type of music he likes to listen to. 

      Then something unexpected happens, he starts seeing things that no one else is able to. A little girl of a bout 7 appears to him, and needless to say he’s freaked out by it. The little girl can understand him but he can’t hear what she is saying. He’s not ready to believe in ghosts just yet and he chalks it up to hallucinations. At night he has some vivid dreams involving two men, one is an ex from his past and one was a fellow Marine. 

      In comes Orlando, the ex-boyfriend that is still in love with Dex. But Dex thinks Orlando has moved on and has a wife and child. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The child turns out to be Orlando’s nephew Zayden, and he can see the ghost of the little girl also. 

       Dex sets out to solve The mystery of why the little girl died and has not crossed over yet. Which leads him to meeting up with Selina and her partner Jillian. Selina is a psychiatrist and Jillian is a PI. Will he solve the little girl’s mystery? 

         Love, love Faith!!!! I highly recommend this book. Another smashing success by a very talented author.

SWSworn To ProtectORN TO PROTECT (Red Stone Security #11) by Katie Reus

Quinn Brody’s past has come back to haunt him…..Now he’ll do anything to protect the woman he foolishly walked away from.

 

 

Once again Katie Reus has served up a large helping of suspense, action, heat, danger and romance in this fast paced, page turning story.

Quinn Brody had broken things off with Athena Manikas when he found out she was a virgin, but he can’t forget her. When he sees her again, he knows that walking away was the worst thing he could have done. Now that he has been presented a second chance, he is not going to lose her again. But when a threat from his past comes back to haunt him and becomes a threat to Athena, can he show her that he can be trusted?

Athena Manikas has recently joined Red Stone as an event planner, never realizing the man she can’t forget is now her co-worker. Is she ready to trust her heart and give Quinn a second chance? Will that second chance be doomed before it starts when a man that Quinn help put behind bars is released and bent on destroying Quinn by going after anyone he loves? A business trip to Vegas gives Quinn the chance to be hero and protector to Athena, while allowing him to rekindle the flames of love.

We once again get a glimpse of characters from past stories in the Red Stone saga and are introduced to new characters that might be possible stories in the future. This story, like all of Ms. Reus’s, will quickly draw you in and keep you turning those pages until the end. I highly recommend this book along with all the Red Stone Security books. You will not be disappointed.
