== BLURB ==
After the death of her husband, single mom Emma McCoy has given up on love. When the mysterious Liam O’Reilly shows up in town, Emma does her best to keep her distance. What Emma doesn’t know is that Liam is connected to her past in a way that she could never imagine, and it will put her future in jeopardy.

In the small town of Beckland, Ohio, danger is the last thing that Emma expects, but since Liam’s arrival, danger is waiting around every corner.

Book 1 of 3 in Heidi Renee Mason’s romantic suspense trilogy, The Vows. This is not a stand-alone romance.

My review

Can I have more now? Pretty please?

This was a fabulous read. I sat outside in the sun for a lovely afternoon of reading and I inhaled this gem. 

Emma’s life fell apart when her husband died. Everything she thought and believed in  died with him. 

When Liam enters her life she’s wary about opening up. Can Liam break her walls down? Will his secrets change everything?

This is my first read by this author and certainly not my last. I’m so looking forward to reading book two of this series.

Atticus Creed saved my life. His voice talked me down. His lyrics stripped me bare. His tattoos against my hidden scars made me feel beautiful. In turn, I wrecked him with a love that exposed his soul and lies that called to his vilest demons.
We were innocent then.
Now I’m a young mogul who reigns over the corrupt record label he abandoned, and he’s a tortured musician who wants retribution as viciously as I want another taste of his lips. Inevitably, he will crash in my arms, and I will burn in his.
Depravity is all we know. It’s in the air we breathe, it’s in our sweat, it’s the music we make.

My review

Wow. What a debut novel. This was a brilliant read. 

This book is everything I love that I shouldn’t. Don’t read any reviews...just read the book. This book needs to be read and talked about so much.

This is a phenomenal debut read. It’s books like this that keeps me blogging, the surprise reaction of reading a book that blows your mind. Take heed this book isn’t for everyone.
I’m so looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Wicked Girl - blog tour



BLOG TOUR

Wicked Girl by I.V. Olokita
#WickedGirl @OlokitaI @damppebbles #damppebblesblogtours


Book Blurb:
"Even if a dog goes mad, it will always be a dog."

So said a small white sign hung on a wall in Birmingham Mental Institution Ward number 3. It had a black frame, written in a hand they were all well acquainted with. The letters had faded over time. In the end, among all the calligraphy in the frame, one could detect a blurred signature. It was mine.

John Wilcox is a young idler who loathes people except for young women. His destiny brought him near Birmingham Mental Institution during an earthquake. At that time Wilcox saves Elsie, an eccentric, half-deranged teenager. John pulls out every manipulation at his disposal to convince her that he is the right person to help her recover. Grey, Alessi's father, goes on a quest for his lost daughter. She, too, like her mother, was trying to escape him. And so, began the tragic story between prey, and it's supposed predator.

Wicked Girl is a psychological crime fiction, where a sequence of accidents generates cold-blooded, and blood-curdling actions. It is a fascinating combination of romance, tension, and humor, unpredictable to the very end. Presented in a clear, straightforward way, yet its plot is packed with wit, action, and surprises grabbing the reader's attention all the way to the last word.

MY REVIEW

"Even if a dog goes mad, it will always be a dog."

Firstly I read this in one sitting. It’s a quick read and I felt as if the author sucked me in from the start. 

I’m still not sure about this story. Not in how good it is but more like what the heck have I just read kinda way. You know those stories that have you thinking all the way through. With questions running through your mind and your waiting for answers. This is one of those reads.

Great read with plenty of twists and turns. Didn’t see that ending coming which is a big plus from me. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Review: Her Last Promise

Her Last Promise Her Last Promise by Kathryn Hughes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Tara was everything to her mum but she lost her mum when she was young. Now many years later her world is about to change completely when she receives a key for a safe deposit box.

Really need to read more from this author. This was a brilliant read that I’ll certainly be recommending. Once I started reading I was hesitant when I needed to put it down, and then all I did was think about it until I was back reading it.

Review: The Lost Son

The Lost Son The Lost Son by Prue Leith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Firstly I didn’t realise this was book three in the Angelotti Chronicles. I’ll definitely be going back and reading the previous books.

This story had a great storyline. I found myself wanting to read just one more chapter until I’d finished it.

Although I enjoyed the story I think I would have benefited more by reading the previous two books.
Having said that I’ll definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Review: The Reunion

The Reunion The Reunion by Roisin Meaney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely love stories set in Ireland. As an avid reader from Ireland and living in UK these are stories I crave for. This author was written a fabulous story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

As you can guess from the title this story is about a reunion of the Plunkett sisters back in their hometown.

Caroline and Eleanor are sisters but completely different. The story spans from when they were teenagers to adults which I really liked.

I thought this was a really enjoyable story about one family. An ideal beach read.

Review: The Book of Wonders

The Book of Wonders The Book of Wonders by Julien Sandrel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With two amazing sons of my own this brought home to me how lucky I am that they are healthy and happy. Yes I moan about their untidy room, not putting dishes away etc but at least they are able to make a mess.

Thelmas world falls apart when her son, Louis, has an accident and ends up in a coma. She is devastated. When she reads her sons book of wonders she realises she can do something for him while he’s in a coma.

This truly is a heart felt compassionate story. As a mum there were parts that resonated with me. Great praise to the author on a well written story. Ideal read for book club reads.

This is the third book in this series. Book three is my fav so far. It was so so good.

We’ve already met Vaughn and I’m delighted he got his own story.

I loved the way the story went...totally didn’t guess it.

Fabulous hot and sexy read. These stories are quick reads. Ideal bedtime stories ;)

Review: Sisters of Willow House: Utterly heartwarming, feel good Irish fiction

Sisters of Willow House: Utterly heartwarming, feel good Irish fiction Sisters of Willow House: Utterly heartwarming, feel good Irish fiction by Susanne O'Leary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Many years ago when I lived in Ireland the only books I read was from Irish authors. This is a great story that brought me back to those amazing authors.

Maeve asks her sister Roisin to help her restore their aunts mansion Willow House. Is a break from her husband what Roisin needs?

Great story with some really likeable characters. A feel good holiday read that I’ll certainly be recommending to others. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
