Format: Kindle
Date Read: November 16-22nd, 2018
Rating: 3.5 Stars

I really enjoyed this book - it was very ewll written and wasn't boring by any means. The reason for me giving this book a 3.5 was that is just ended. Things were finally looking up, they were finally on the same page and boom - book over. I know that this is just to get you to read the next one, I know, but I can't stand cliffhangers.

Other than that I had no complaints about this book. Good read!

First of all, I just want to say I love how some books just come together so perfectly that everything is wrapped up in a nice little bow at the end. This book was definitely one of those!

I loved both James and Leah - so different and imperfect but fate kept intervening and bringing them together. I loved reading every page of this book, truly.

I have nothing but good things to say about this book - the characters were perfectly flawed, I loved the secondary characters as well! I just loved everything about this book from cover to cover.

I have loved other books by this author and while this was a good read and I read through the pages eagerly, I felt like there wasn't enough build up between the characters. They went from hating to loving each other and I couldn't understand why. There weren't enough special moments or anything for me to see that's why it was leading in that direction.

I did enjoy the cast of characters and am interested to see how the rest of the series turns out. If the book was longer I'm sure there would have been more moments between the main couple.

I am a huge fan of this author to begin with, I LOVED On The Island, so its no surprise that I was immediately pulled into this book from the first page. I love this authors writing style - it flows so nicely that you are always able to "see" everything happeneing in the book, just as she meant it to.
From the first time Ian and Kate met I was rooting for them - I loved their interactions and the way they just went back and forth so effortlessly. I love how Ian is flawed but makes no apologies for it - he is who he is and he's not going to change. I love how Kate just wants to do something to help people - so sweet and courageous of her. I just love these characters so much.
I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for something you will not want to put down. This author's writing style just makes it so hard to stop reading because she weaves such wonderful tales that suck you in.

I'm off to go get book 2 in this series!

Review: Baby Fever Promise

Baby Fever Promise Baby Fever Promise by Nicole Snow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book: Baby Fever Promise by Nicole Snow

So I'm not sure where to start with this review. I didn't love this book but I don't hate it either. It definitely got me all fired up when I see the mistakes both the hero and heroine made but I had a hard time getting on board with this book. I just kept thinking that certain things didn't make sense.

This couple made me go nuts with how bad they were with communication. They did not need to be apart for 5 years - it was so unnecessary! Yes, Luke should have opened his mouth about what he knew to give her a heads up but she also shouldn't have been so nasty to him and shoved him out of her life when he technically didn't do anything wrong. Trust is a huge issue, I get that, but she could have at least tried to understand where he was coming from. I understand being angry in the heat of the moment and not thinking clearly but when they spoke a few days later she had had time to calm down and think rationally. I think I felt bad more for Luke than Robbi!

"No matter how sexy he is, how well he calls to my senses with his mad inks and muscle, I'll never forget our unique pain. I'll never forgive him for hiding what he knew, for letting his father prey on us, or for abandoning me in the end."

What? Five years have passed in this story and I'm seriously baffled by her thought process here. I get that her mom twisted her thoughts around but I really am confused as to why she has jumped to these conclusions. Yes, Luke backed off but she basically PUSHED him out of her life. The only thing he can be accused of is not telling her what he knew before she found out herself.

Luckily, after a lot more drama and yet another huge misunderstanding and speed bump, they got things right in the end and were granted a fairy tale ending - which they rightfully deserved. Both of them.

I don't hate this book but I don't think I will be reading it again - it was certainly interesting enough to keep me reading but I just can't deal with the hero and heroine's issues with each other.
