The Letters: A Carnage Novella Book Summary
It's just a box of letters, right? Words that were written a long time ago. From a boy to the girl that he missed. From a man to the woman he loved. But what if those words carried more impact than anyone realised? Will they finally give Georgia the closure she needs and lessen the guilt she battles every day? Or will everything she thought she knew about the boy and man who wrote them and the life they shared be forever altered? All will be revealed in The Letters. A story about life, love, and acceptance.

Marley: A Carnage Novel

Want to know what really happened in that hotel room in Paris?
Want to know if the rumours of Marley, Sean and their sexploits were true?
We got to watch Georgia fall apart but what was Sean going through in those four years they were separated?
Marley will give you the answers but he might just break your heart along the way.
"‘So, they want me to write a book? They want to know about my band, my life, my loves and my losses. But they have no idea what they’re asking for. If I give them what they want, they’ll get so much more than the sex and drugs and the rock and roll they’re expecting. They’ll get the secrets that I’ve kept for so long, they’ll get an insight into the person I really am, or at least was. They think they know my story, they know nothing.
If I do this, if I write honestly and give them the ugly truth, people will get hurt. People that I love, people that have already suffered in the worst possible ways.
Do I do this, or do I walk away? Taking my secrets to the grave."
Marley is an adult contemporary romance. It contains content suitable only for grownups with an open mind. There are scenes of group sex which include m/f/m a little bit of f/m/m and even some f/f/f/m/m/f/f/f. There is drinking and drug taking involved. A lot of swearing, some Essex slang and some very high emotion. Please don’t complain after reading this book that you weren't warned.
 And yes, of course you’ll need tissues.

REVIEW - The Letters by Lesley Jones - REVIEWED BY LOUISE


If you are a fan of the series like me then grab this book and settle down with a cup of tea and a box of tissues.  No it won't make you cry as much as the other books will do but there still maybe a tear or two shed.

I love the fact we see all our favourite characters and see a glimpse into Georgia's life with Cameron.  Seeing their kids all grown up is brilliant and the fact Cameron has his own POV in this too is brilliant.

Gaining a glimpse of the love Sean and Georgia had, it was perfect.  But then so is her love with Cameron.  I could never pick between those two characters and I understand why Georgia had such trouble choosing!!

Wonderful heartfelt dip back into some well loved characters and I am so excited where the surprise ending leaves us!!

REVIEW - From The Heart Anthology by Various Authors - REVIEWED BY LOUISE



A fantastic selection of 5* romantic stories.
All of them well written and with strong storylines and intriguing characters.

I could not pick a favourite if I tried.  I literally went from one great story to the next.  I devoured them all in very little time at all.

Loved them all.  Well done everyone, a fantastic anthology proving love can conquer all.

COVER REVEAL - Forgiving Nancy by Muriel Garcia



Book - Forgiving Nancy, book five in the last hangman MC Series
Author - Muriel Garcia
Photographer - Eric Battershell

Model - Robert Simmons
Cover Reveal - 22nd February
Release Date - March 22
Hosted by Hooked on books  & Cherry0Blossom Promotions



One man.
One woman.
A past full of lies.
***

That girl, that special girl. The clich├ęd ‘One Who Got Away’ except she didn’t get away. She was stolen from me.
We started off as neighbours but quickly turned into something more. In what felt like a blink of an eye, I found myself in love and then boom. She was gone.
After that, my life went down a dark and lonely trail. I joined the club my parents ran from and kept my heart shut off from everyone, never entertaining the thought of a relationship. If I couldn’t have her, I didn’t want anyone.

I’ve been in love and have been loved but all too soon it was stolen from me. More accurately, I was stolen from it and my life hasn’t been the same since.
To an outsider, I had it all: money, nice house, friends, anything a seventeen-year-old could want, but inside I was dying. I hated my life with my parents until him and I hate the life I’m forced to live now but I just can’t bring myself to end it. Not if there is a possibility that he is out there and that one day I might have the chance to see him again.

What happens when Nancy and Bennett are reunited once again?
Will Nancy’s past ruin the still present chemistry between them or is it already too late?
Will Bennett be able to see past her secret and find a way to forgive Nancy?

Muriel Garcia was born and raised in Belgium. She started writing a little over a year ago and never thought she would ever publish; reading and writing weren’t her favorite things to do in high school.
After one of her friends gave her a challenge – the next time they would attend a book signing, she would be a signing author (it did happen!) – she started to take writing a lot more seriously and never looked back. She’s enjoyed every second of it and the friends she’s made along the way.
She loves music, tattoos—especially on hot men, traveling, and cooking. She has always had an overly imaginative and creative mind but never thought of putting words to paper. Now she couldn’t imagine not writing stories that are near and dear to her heart.

REVIEW - Until We Collide by Charlotte Fallowfield - REVIEW BY LOUISE


So many of the books I read are dark, violent reads. I haven't really read many books like this one before.

This book was a breath of fresh air. If you ever need to read something to cheer you up and make you laugh then this book is it!! 

Paige is a total calamity, danger to herself. Everything she does goes wrong. Every date she ever has goes wrong. In fact not much of her life goes right! 

You totally feel sorry for her, how can one person be so unlucky in love? 

Paige and Alec are destined to be together but they have to both go through the emotional (and physical in Paige's case) wringer.

Every single second of this book I was laughing hysterically. I suggest you don't read this in public because you will have a tonne of people looking at you like you are some sort of weirdo giggling like a hyena in public! As it was I was sat in a corner of my settee with my 9 year old daughter scowling and tutting and shushing me because I was making too mich noise and she couldn't hear her tv programme!!

From the start to the finish I couldn't put this book down, well other than to sleep! But all I could think of is getting up and finishing the book! I have never had that before.

I loved every second of it and I do hope the author is going to write some more rom-com because I really will be lining up to read that.

Very well deserved 5*s and if I could give it more I would!

REVIEW - Marked by Rebecca Sherwin - REVIEWED BY LOUISE



WOW,  Let me begin by saying that this book is NOT for the faint hearted.  It deals with many hard issues including child abuse.  

It is an extremely hard read, one that will gut you inside out and upside down.  One that will wring all of your emotions out of you until you are an empty emotionless shell.

Benny makes an appearance in the other Twisted books.  In those books he comes across as a nasty piece of work.  But in this book, his story, you come to realise why he is the way he is.  The things he goes through are enough to make your toes curl and hair stand on end!! 

At times I had to stop and I admit I almost threw up a few times too!!

Faith also had to deal with so very much.  As someone that has suffered physical violence at the hands of an ex husband I really felt myself drawn to her character.

Marked tells the story of two very tortured souls that have the power to heal eachother if they allow themselves to. A very hearfelt yet dark read. 

Another 5* from this author and it's plain to see why.  An author that can make you feel so many different emotions in one go is worth her weight in gold.
