Review: Fish & Chips

Fish & Chips
Fish & Chips by Madeleine Urban
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t even know where to begin with this awesomeness!!! In this installment Ty & Zane find themselves stuck on a cruise ship as an out and married couple. As you can imagine this led to some wonderful events.

The case in this one was very interesting and as it went on it was tough to decipher the difference between the good guys and the bad guys.

I absolutely loved how far their relationship was able to grow because of the circumstances and the passionate make you sweat hot and steamy sex was definitely a plus!!!

I really should have started this series sooner!!! I must continue on, I cannot put them down!!!

Review: Sticks & Stones

Sticks & Stones
Sticks & Stones by Madeleine Urban
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I think I liked the first book a little bit more story wise… but this one was definitely above and beyond when it came to humor.

I loved the progression and the growth in their relationship and that we got to meet Ty’s crazy ass family. Deuce was hilarious and a real cool guy. Grandpa of course with his shovel had me dying laughing. I totally expected Ty’s Mom to be a badass and she did not disappoint. Earl pissed me off at times but even he was a great character.

The best parts were the cat related comments, my personal favorite “meow-mix”. HAHAHA! Of course the shovel and the fight with the garden hose was a great one. Also, Ty & Zane’s stolen moments were really wonderful. That scene in Ty’s old bedroom was on fire!!!!!!

Gosh, I am on to the next one now… I’m really excited to see where this one goes based off of the preview at the back of the book. It should be humorous but also a great chance to see them as more of a couple, I hope.

Review: Finally Finding Faith

Finally Finding Faith
Finally Finding Faith by Tammy Falkner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The single most important aspect of getting better…

You will definitely have moments where you will have a tear or twelve in your eyes while reading this book. You will also have that warm feeling that surrounds you like a hug whenever you read a Tammy Falkner book. I’m not sure how she does it, but she can write about some of the most depressing and awful things and yet you have never felt better after reading it.

Daniel is a Veteran and has a traumatic and harrowing back story that has led him to New York City at the end of the year with a bucket list and a plan in hand. Faith is the granddaughter of Henry that owns the clock shop. You’ll remember him as being the older gentleman with the wife whose health is failing from previous Reed Brothers books. Faith has her own bumpy history and story of loss.

The difference between Daniel and Faith are in the level of hope each of them has in their situation and their ability to find happiness in life. As they get to know each other and experience the joy of meeting someone new who is attractive and interesting they each find comfort and healing in one another.

I won’t say anything specific or go on as it is a short one and I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone. I really just loved it. Such a heart wrenching and heart warming read!!!
