Power Play

Power Play
Posted 25 June 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Power Play is the latest in Cattherine Gayles’s Portland Storm series. I can’t say enough good things about this series. The stories are always full of raw emotions and deeply intense situations. The characters are real and smudged with the often harsh realities of life, not sugar coated to become some kind of plastic “ideal.” […]

My Review I truly love the Portland Storm books and I am never disappointed by them!  The stories are beautifully written, with all of the romance you could ever want right along with deep, emotionally intense issues.  And this one was so much more than romance,..  This is the story of a little girl who refused to […]

My Review I am a huge fan of Catherine Gayle’s hockey-themed romances!  I have read every one that she is written and they are each amazing reads.  The knowledge that the author has of hockey and the behind-the-scenes of it all is obvious and seen in the incredible attention to detail.  But the stories aren’t […]

My Review One of the first things that struck me about Modern Montsers was the voice, that of a teenage male and something that there is not enough of in YA literature.  And that voice was convincing and empathetic. Vic is not the stereotypical YA hero and I LOVED that.  His best friend is one of […]

My Review On the Fly is the second book in the Portland Storm and just as deeply intense and moving as the first.  The romance in these books is beautiful, made that much more beautiful in light of the pain and emotions of the rest of the story.  It  isn’t light and it isn’t fluffy.  But […]

My Review This had so many elements of the classic romance novel.  The girl falls in love with her brother’s best friend.  The girl has issues and turns to the hot guy friend and they fall in love.  Big tough guy has a tender heat.  But even with all of these things, this story is […]

My Review A Tale of Witchwood Park is the first book in the new Witchwood Park series. the first of five intended novels.  It is a short novel, just about 61 pages and is intended for younger readers.  I love books of magic and whimsy for children and this book fits the bill perfectly! The three […]
