Once Upon a Player - My Review

Image
There are many popular tropes within the romantic novel genre of books and one of my favorite has always been the bad boy who falls for the good girl. This is the premise of  Christina Phillips' book Once Upon a Player. This isn't a complicated book with sweeping drama or long complicated action pages. This is the simple story of how Lucas Carter, a man who appeared to have just about anything a guy could want, met and fell in love with Violet Henderson. Sometimes the best stories are actually the most simple ones.
Violet is filling in for her mother's housekeeping job at some rich jock's place. She goes in and finds the place a mess from a party the previous night. Thinking no one was home, she began picking the place up until Lucas waltzed out wearing nothing but his skivvies! This was the introduction to the main characters folks! Talk about a Hello and Good Morning! Next we find out that Lucas is  currently benched from his soccer career due to a knee injury and n…

A Duke Like No Other - My Review

Image
Take one grumpy exacting spymaster and one fiercely independent woman, put them together and what happens? Sparks fly, emotions surface, and everything changes. That is the premise of this gem of a novel called A Duke Like No Other by Valerie Bowman.  This is not my first Valerie Bowman book and, after reading, most definitely won't be my last! It all starts off with General Mark Grimaldi and the promotion to spymaster that he has been working towards for years. He is the grandson of a Duke, but few know that since his mother was ostracized and disowned when she married Mark's father, an Italian Catholic. One last thing that he needs before he's handed his promotion is to show himself to be a family man. Enter Nicole Huntington, his estranged wife. They've been living separate lives for years. Mark has been in England crafting his spy skills while Nicole has been in France living a contented life over there. So Mark journeys to France to convince Nicole to come back t…

Good Night, Sweet Prince...Now His Watch Is Ended

Hello my lovely readers,

It has been many months since I last posted. In fact I will be honest and say, I completely forgot about reading books and writing this blog, for a very long time. Much has happened since I last wrote. While there were many little things that ate up my time, I experienced a big and heartbreaking loss in my life. After a brief but excruciating battle with cancer, I lost my wonderful father two days before Christmas. This has been the most heartbreaking loss I have ever had in my life so far. I always knew I would have to bury my parents someday, I just never planned on it being so soon. My dad was only 65, but cancer has no discrimination when it chooses its targets. It happened over such a short period of time, that I couldn't wrap my head around his sickness, before he was just, gone. Now the wonderful, funny, kind, brilliant man I had the honor and pleasure of calling my Dad, is gone from my life forever. My brain still refuses to accept that he is truly…
