~When you love some so much, there are times that letting go, is the only way to save them from harm. It might shatter your heart in a million pieces, but knowing that the person you love most is safe its enough.~

This was the first thoughts that came to my head after finishing this book. It had such a powerful effect that it made me realize how much sacrifice Fiona did just to protect Ian. The love she had for him was the best kind of love.

Ian, on the other hand…just wow. There are no words, just pure emotions as I recall, how powerful his lines were as i read the book. It made me wish that my husband have the same personality as him.

The last leg of the book was something I do not want to read again. I thought she was really going to die! It was one of those moments that I had to stop reading. I was in a public transportation while I was reading that part. People were like looking at me. I wanted to shout at the sky for the injustice. Then the plot twist, it was like *boom*.

In the world of Ms. Katie Reus Darkness Series, the word “Forever” is possible.

If your love is strong enough, then all you need to do is believe in each other and everything will fall into their places.

As the book comes to an end, there are several people that came into light, another brother.

I do look forward for the next book in the series.

Highland Vixen (Highland Weddings, #2)

Highland Vixen



Highland Vixen by Mary Wine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It took me a while, a long while to write the review of this book. There were some parts that really shook me. And up to now, the story still have an effect on my emotional upheaval. The story line is really nice.

This is the second book of the series, and this time it is the War Lord’s story. I actually like this. However, the number of events during the whole book was too much. It was a bit too overwhelming. They were insightful, but man, I wanted to kill some people in the book myself.

The events, the thoughts of the aristocrats were too much for me. Yes, I am used to it, but the depravity of the people in this book was too much. Especially, Brenda’s side of the story. That was too much, and i find myself crying on how she was treated. I wanted to gut those men. It was noble of her, but what of the price?

The ending was really good, I am looking forward to read the next book. I love Katherine, the way her thoughts were made is really good.

I rate this 4 stars, well, its Marcus.

Her Relentless Russian (Karev Brothers, #3)

Her Relentless Russian
Her Relentless Russian by Leslie North

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

~ARC from NetGalley.~

The third book of the Karev Brothers comes to a conclusion as to whom killed their father.

The over all series was really good. It started with the younger brother, the oldest, then the middle. As the story progress, you can see why it was written that way.

Dmitry’s wife died, 5 years ago. The event gave him the reason to leave the Mafia life. However, the death of his father and his love for his sibling still made him part of the mafia he wants to leave. Harper in the other hand is someone that I would truly want to meet. Her wit and the way she dressed up everyday was something to look forward to while i was reading the book.

The plot was easy and not too complicated. As the first series that i have read from this author, i look forward to reading the rest of her books.

Hard to Handle (Gargoyles, #5)

Hard to Handle




Hard to Handle by Christine Warren

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

~ARC was provided via NetGalley for honest review.~

As the 5th book of the Gargoyles Series. I find this good. Good in terms of the continuity of the story so far. We are given a chance to look at how the other characters for the previous books are faring. So far, everything and everyone of them are doing their best to destroy the Darkness.

This book in particular? I find it so-so. The level of excitement I feel whenever i read one of Ms. Warren’d book was not there. The way Ash was created was something but there was a missing link or a missing emotion as I read the book. The love story between Drum and her was pretty good. However, let’s just say that i got used to the way she wrote “Others.”

I miss the lines. I miss how her characters came to life by the lines they say to each other and to the people around them. Yes, this is a complete different story and plot, but the narration of both of the main characters left me wishing for more.I feel as though more should be said between Ash and Drum.

The fight scenes? Wow those were intense! I liked it. The details were good that I do not want to imagine what their opponent looked like. I feel as though I will have nightmares for the next few days if i do.

All in all, the book has its up and downs. But it does not demote it. It give us readers reasons to see how will it address, and how will the next book fare. I for one, would gladly wait for the next one.
