Ensnared – Rita Stradling

Okay this is not going to be for kids but young adults could read this. Sexual scenes but could be a weak story for adults. I did enjoy this but I wanted a light read and it’s good just not a gripping storyline and you are going to guess the plot from the beginning but I still loved it. I know mixed messages here but for a light romantic read with a steampunk feel even if it’s set in the future.

Avishi – Saiswaroopa Iyer

A great start to this Arc story. Pulled me in on the first chapter. Thanks to the author for the chance to read this story for an unbiased review.

As I said the story pulls you into the mystery of Avishi on the first chapter. Feeling this is going to be one of those stories hard to put down.

A slow build up in the story and character development but I do like this in a story. I like to get to know the characters before the action starts.

For All We Know – Mary J Williams

Okay just starting my new review read on the fourth of September.

The first chapter completed and I am put out that the couple meet and she’s fifteen. Not sure where it’s bedding yet but feel that’s too young with how this story starts out. Basically reconnecting years later after a romantic involvement but not sure if it’s sexual yet but it does point in that direction.

Okay looks as if I got the sexual part wrong. Good build up in the story so far and character development is excellent.

A great little story that I could not put down and finished in a day.

Watermarked – Jessica Titone

Not a fan of the cover of this book sadly so probably would not have purchased this story but this is still in the beta stages. Thanks to the author for granting me a copy for review for an unbiased review.

This is a four person point of view story. It has kept me interested in the plot but not a great fan of Flynn but all have a strong personality that keeps you wondering on their secret.

The characters come across as self centred at first but as their story develops they seem to grow on you. The story also separated into two stories with the couples. I was in tears at the telling of the one story. Simply loved it.

There were a few editing errors but the copy I received was a Bata copy so it was to be expected but it was nothing that destroyed the story for me.

I would have happily had paid for this story.
