Rock Stars Are Trouble – Hooch in Hades 1
Bookreview / June 17, 2016

Rock Stars Are Trouble is a novel by Kelly D. Smith and apparently part 1 in the Hooch in Hades series.. Smith that she requested me to read and review. It is not a book I would normally read, but I did and I liked it. There is no man on man action here, we are dealing with a straight couple here. It kind of reminded me a little bit of Fifty Shades of Grey, minus the SM stuff. But a nice story it is…. Kenda Lexan is a writer for a popular music blog, but she has to write something good or her job is on the line. She needs the money real bad and cannot afford to loose this, so she is looking for a great story. And thats when she meets Greyson Brant, a singer in an upcoming rock band. It just might be her big chance, but she knows from experience that rock singers are only trouble. But when she finally meets Greyson, he turns out to be very different. He is actually nice to his fans and doesn’t live up to the rock star image at all. And he is seriously flirting with her. Kenda…

Bookreview / June 15, 2016

Rhythm & Blues is the new novel by Shae Connor. Not too long ago I participated in the blogtour for this book, this time I actually read the book.

Selling It is a short story by Sara York, recently republished with a new cover. It was the first time I learned about the story and I liked it very much.

Unquiet – Resilient Love #3
Bookreview / June 8, 2016

Unquiet is the third part in the Resilient Love series. After reading part 1 and part 2, I just knew I had to read this latest part as well. Heartbreaking and very very emotional, but I am so glad I read it. The central element in all three stories is mental health issues. One or both of the MC’s are suffering from some kind of mental illness and need to learn to overcome that in order to find love or just be the one the other party needs. Melanie Hansen manages to do this so wonderfully beautiful, it makes me very emotional to read the stories. Melanie Hansen is high up on my absolute favorite list. In part three we meet Loren Smith and Eliot Devlin. Loren has been in love with Eliot for as long as he can remember, but there has always been something weird about Eliot. And yet Eliot seems to be the only one able to understand Loren and make him feel less lonely. But when Eliot attempts suicide, it leaves Loren devastated and broken. They drift apart and don’t see each other for 9 years. Then, by chance, they meet again. Loren is a police…
