The Definition of Icing by Aven Ellis

OMG, I just loved this book!!! The story, the characters and the setting. Even has a really gift of writing spellbinding and unique books. Nate is a hockey player and I'm still swooning over him!!! Kylie is a very relatable character and full of passion. Their story is amazing, is still keep thinking about it. The emotions come across really well and it feels like being there with the characters. PERFECT!!!
My review

The Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis

Another FABULOUS book by Aven Ellis. This one is the first in the Chicago on Ice series, I love that it's set there. This story is very funny and amazingly well written. The storyline flows beautifully and captured me immediately. Yet again Aven managed to create wonderful characters and a cute and dorky male lead, I just love Beckett!!!

Breakout by Aven Ellis

Yes, I hear you! Aven Ellis again, but I'm sorry she is my favorite author and she writes BRILLIANT books! The Dallas Demons Series continues with this one and this one is full of sparks and special moments. An awesome bunch of characters again, a great mal lead and a first kiss scene to die for!!!

Fairytale Beginnings by Holly Martin

Holly created the perfect fairytale story including, a castle, a love story, romance, ghosts, mystery, fun, dangerous situations and a lot of memorable scenes. This book is truly magical!!!! Holly’s writing is unique and very special, she really understands how to draw in the reader. 

Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses by Jenny Hale

Jenny Hale did it once again. She created a PERFECT, MAGICAL, FESTIVE and ADORABLE read! It will mae your heart warm up and leave a smile on your face. It’s a remarkable book full of love, sweetness, life lessons and much more!!!

The Day We Disappeared  by Lucy Robinson

Lucy has left me SPEECHLESS with this book!!!! So brilliant, clever, moving, unique and so much more!!! This is a real masterpiece with a big surprise and written in a warm, funny, down to earth, catchy and wonderful way! GENIUS!!!

The Silent Hours by Cesca Major

 It’s a very shocking story and she managed to describe things in a beautiful and yet very touching way, the scenes and moments seem very autentic and it’s truly the only wartime story that really touched my heart. Cesca has an incredible way with her words and she makes a story special and unique through them. This book is touching, deep, emotional, shocking and yet so beautiful. Truly unforgettable!!!

The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance by Kirsty Greenwood

Kirsty is a wonderful writer, who writes with passion and heart. The storyline has a beautiful flow and the scenes are vivid and detailed, I enjoyed every single second of this book! GRIPPING, FABULOUS AND AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
My review

Picnics at Hyde Park by Nikki Moore

Nikki’s style of writing is really unique. She always finds a gripping way to engage the reader, the scenes flow beautifully and have an authentic and unique spark. London and the settings seemed vivid and I felt like being there with the characters and that’s what I love for in a story!!! FABULOUS, TERRIFIC and JUST AWESOME!!!!!

Meet Me in Manhattan by Claudia Carroll

It’s gripping, touching and covers several topics, that make it more than just a chick-lit novel. Claudia is a very talented author, who makes a story incredible with her writing. The atmosphere is unbeatable and full of sparks. There are funny moments, sweet ones, emotional ones and also shocking ones. This book is BRILLIANT!!!!!
