Book Review: One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank

One Paris SummerOne Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had this books for months before reading it (life got in my way) and I sorely regret it. Once I stated this book it was impossible to stop reading. Sophie and her brother visit Paris for their father’s wedding. However their new sister seems determined to do anything and everything to spoil Sophie’s time abroad. Added to that there’s a hot and mysterious guy who’s friend with the evil step-sister AND Sophie’s longtime crush seems to be turning into a jerk. Could things get any worse? Yes, they can but you’ll have to read the book to find out more. At several points I just wanted to curl up in a corner and cry. Sophie goes through so much and it just upsets me. Paris is supposed to be magical and romantic, not full of horrible mean people.
This book was such a delight to read. I really wish I read it sooner. I thought Sophie’s relationship seemed a bit too serious for someone her age but besides that I loved every other thing about this book. I’d love to see a sequel about the other characters who are all so memorable.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Raven (A Creepy Hollow Story) by Rachel Morgan

Raven (A Creepy Hollow Story)Raven by Rachel Morgan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had my doubts about this book since a) I couldn’t really remember Raven from the Creepy Hollow series and b) I didn’t think any other character in Creepy Hollow would make a impact on me the way that Chase did. I decided to just read a few pages to see what I thought of the book and I was instantly sucked in.
Raven comes from a very wealthy family and is “practically royalty” according to her mother. What Raven’s parents don’t know is that Raven has a close (and forbidden) friendship with Flint, one of the guards.
When Raven is caught in the middle of a dangerous murderous plot, Flint is the only one around to help her.
This is a really fast read and I loved getting a look at a completely different part of Creepy Hollow. I would love to see more from the upper classes of Creepy Hollow.
I didn’t like Flint as much as Chase (will I ever like anyone as much as Chase? Doubtful) but I thought he was a great character nonetheless. I especially enjoyed seeing Tora as a kid. I would love if the next Creepy Hollow novella was about her.
This is a quick but entertaining read that fans of Creepy Hollow will love!

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Someone Like You by Jennifer Gracen

Someone Like YouSomeone Like You by Jennifer Gracen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pierce left England after a scandal ruined his name and his career. He is instantly drawn to soccer coach, Abby. However Abby has been burned in the past and is reluctant to let anyone I’m. I loved seeing characters from the previous book in the series. I especially enjoyed how well-written the characters of Abby and Pierce were. Jennifer Gracen has a knack for creating real characters with real flaws. This is an excellently written book that fans of romance will devour.
