HENRY AND TOM
Henry and Tom explores the world of animal emotions and the powerful bonds that can develop between animals and humans. In 1995 Tom, a spokesman at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was involved in rescuing a beached juvenile sperm whale near San Diego, California. Tom names the whale Henry and the two form a strong emotional bond during the rescue. Twenty years later, Tom’s sailboat sinks on a solo voyage from San Francisco to Hawaii, and he and Henry are reunited thousands of miles from land.

HENRY AND TOM is a heartwarming story. The characters and story line are very well-developed. This is a great story showing the love and trust of a man and whale. Henry finds Tom on the beach. He knows he has to help the whale and he calls a friend. When they get their, Henry starts to leave the whale, but the whale becomes agitated when Henry leaves. Now Tom has to stay with the whale why they try to get him back to the water. The crew attends the cuts that the whale had sustained from a shark attack that killed his mother. Be prepared to cry in this book, for it will pull at your heartstrings. It deals with finding yourself, family and marriage. This is not my usual type of story that I read, but I thought why not! I am glad I did. I GIVE HENRY AND TOM 4/5 STARS.

REVIEW – A MESS OF REASON BY A. WILDING WELLS

A MESS OF REASON“Witty”, “romantic”, “sexy” and “soul-swelling”.

An addictive heartfelt novel with a bold voice that will have you laughing out loud one minute then grabbing for tissue the next. An unforgettable romance with twists so emotionally wrought and endearing that they’ll make you weep. Get ready to carve out a chunk of your heart for Scout and Tess’s genuinely moving best-friend-turned-lover romance. This is an “I love you” like you’ve never read before. It’s not a story, it’s a sexy romance novel game changer.
“Scout Steele is the country music star People magazine just voted ‘sexiest bachelor’. More than that, he’s my best friend forever, my bff. OK, not quite my lingo – I’m almost thirty. We’ve shared everything, and then some. Even crossed the line a few times, but not too far. Well, mostly…. He’ll go to the end of the world to make me happy; he knows me inside and out. Except, that is, my most intimate and darkest defect; this he must never know. It would ruin us, and ‘us’ is the only thing that matters. So I’m marrying someone who doesn’t care about the truth or, frankly, even me.”
“She’s twisted and sexy as all get out. Brilliant and beautiful, Tess Harlow is my best friend and my forbidden fruit – the woman I’ve always known and loved the best but can never have. Between my tours (and sexy groupies) and her man-juggling, we’ve never found “our time”. I love her to pieces but she’s about to marry the bane of my existence, rocker Creed Luce. He’s a walking cliché and he treats my Tess like hell – why she stays with him I still haven’t figured out. I am always there for her…but not this time. Tess deserves better, way better, my better. The door is half-open and I have my ways. Her best friend is about to become her best lover.”

I loved A MESS OF REASON! The characters and story grabbed me from the first page. If you have been in love with your best friend since school, would you jeopardize your friendship to tell her?  Scout is about to get to that moment. He does not like the man who Tess Harlow is marrying. What can he do? He cannot let her marry that douche bag! Stryker and me are going to be the only males at her bachelorette  party. I can’t take anymore of her fiancée, and the way he treats her. Will I lose her forever when I tell her. I love Scout and Tess. Tess is also carrying around a secret that she has told no-one about. If she lets Scout know, she knows he will leave her. I recommend this book, and it is a great story. I give A MESS OF REASON 5 /5 STARS.

His friendship is exactly what she’s been missing—what she’s been needing. Alina’s never felt this alive. As time goes by, the dynamic of their relationship becomes more than either of them expected.

Only one way to find out.

UNEXPECTED is a sexy,hot read. I fell in love with the characters of Ryan and Alina, they are good for each other. Alina has just received news from her boyfriend that he wants a break from their relationship. She cannot get a break from the crappy day that she is having, she is late going in for work and ends up losing her job. She goes back to the apartment that she shares with her friend and takes a shower.  While she is in the shower, someone joins her.  Thinking it is her boyfriend they start to have shower sex, until she finds out it is her roommates boyfriend. They both find out that their boyfriend and girlfriend are having an affair with each other.

So Alina and Ryan go out and get drunk together. Ryan takes her to her place to stay, because she is moving out of her place. Now with her staying with Ryan, it starts to get interesting. The characters and story line is very well-developed, and I recommend this book to everyone. Lilly Avalon is a writer that I will keep my eye on and her books on my to be read pile. I give UNEXPECTED 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW FOR “IT HAD TO BE YOU” BY JILL SHALVIS

it had to be youAli Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she’s a thief, and now she’s about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who’s as sexy as he is stern….

After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke’s own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

This is a light-hearted, fun romance. I loved the character development, and the story line. Ali is about to lose her place to live and her boyfriend all in one day. The dog of a boyfriend does not tell her that he is not renewing the lease on the place that they are renting together  until he is completely moved out. He lets her know that Luke is coming back to Lucky Harbor to stay for a couple of weeks. He is a Detective with the San Francisco  police department and is recuperating from a bad case. He winds up letting Ali stay there until she finds a place.

When she is accused of stealing $50,000 from the office of her Ex. Luke helps her clear her name. The sexual tension between these two is very hot. I loved the book, and I gave it  5/5 stars.
