Review: Mend by Chelle Bliss

From USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss comes a feel-good, sexy second-chance STANDALONE romance.

Six years ago, the only girl I ever loved moved away.
She said she’d come back to me.
She promised she’d write.
She swore she’d always be mine, but Evie Bailey lied.

Now, Evie’s back, and this time, I’m not letting her go without a fight.

Before senior year, I was forced to move away, leaving behind the only boy I ever loved.
He said he’d love me forever.
He promised nothing would tear us apart.
He swore he’d wait for me, but Jack Nelson lied.

Now, Jack wants to make me his again, but he may never be able to forgive my sins.

Evie & Jack
THIS ONE HAD ME AT HELLO
5 Stars cuz 10 is not an option

I am stunned! I am satisfied! And I am complete! Jack and Evie and their owner (Chelle) took me on a crazy emotional ride that I’ll never be able to fully explain how it made me feel. These characters were powerful and deep. They had the muscle to pull every positive and negative feels out of me an oh man did they ever!

This is one of those Chelle Bliss books that’s “off the beat and path.” She wrote this during a very emotional time in her life and it shows in every word. It’s definitely a romance, but different from any other book she’s wrote to date. This storyline is so captivating and controlling that what seems to happen to Jack and Evie became my highest concern.

Of course being a Chelle Bliss book, the writing style is impeccable and the pacing flawless. It’s not a dark read, but certainly not anything light-hearted either. The story deals with betrayal, hope, love, guilt, and a multitude of other things that add up to this beautiful tale. It will have a lasting effect on life for year to come.

MY REVIEW

When Life Happened by Jewel E. Ann
This is the section where I put the H/h names, but I really can’t… I can’t explain it either. All I can say is PARKER!!!
5 Stars all the way!!!

Step One: Buy e-book because Pam Godwin recommended it to me and told me NOT to read any of the reviews… apparently there are still DICKS out there who put spoilers in their reviews without any warning! Incidentally, Pam was freaking way the fuck out about this book and she was only 40% into it.

Step Two: Find out Jewel E. Ann is at the same signing we’re at (Penned Con 2017) and I make my way over to her table to buy a signed copy of said book. Did I mention I went back a second time to buy another copy to give away on Rough Draft Book Blog?

Step Three: Sit my ass in a comfy chair and get down to the nitty gritty of reading this wild book… Holy shit! Can’t peel face away from book…

Step Four: Read said book in one day because I couldn’t freakin’ put the damn thing down. And now I completely appreciate Pam’s fangirling over Ms. Ann and this fanfuckingtastic tale!

I am in love with this book, this story, and all its characters! When I finished reading it I was satisfyingly content. Ms. Ann brought these characters to life in a way that connected directly to my heart from the very beginning.

Parker is a conundrum of emotions. She’s fucked up from the past and the future’s not looking too bright at the moment. I get now why when I asked Pam to describe this book, she kinda stuttered a bit and shrugged her shoulders. There’s not much I can say without giving too much away.

This is definitely not a light hearted read. It’s not dark either. Shit, what the hell am I trying to say? It’s very serious and penetrating yet laced with enough humor to put an occasional smile on your face. The storyline is so enthralling that by the time you reach the inevitable plot twist, you’ll be too captivated to turn back. At least I was. And it doesn’t stop there! Sit down, strap in, and get ready for a bumpy ride.

This is my first Jewel E. Ann book, but it won’t be my last. I love the way she throws down the words and makes them all dance across my heart! Fantastic read!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.

Review: A Beautiful Catastrophe by Katheryn Kiden

For two years Shay Daniels has been stuck in the past—stuck in a pain so deeply overwhelming that she constantly feels as if she’s drowning. A chance meeting gives her her first breath of fresh air, but it could be her final downfall.

He’s stuck wondering what could have been—letting the pain of everything he’s lost simmer within his broken heart. She’s the first thing that has made him feel like himself again in years. He might be able to love her—he wants to—if he could only manage to live in the present.

Devastating pasts.

Uncertain futures.

Life is supposed to move forward, but what if all it does is revolve in a heartbreaking circle?

What if every step you take toward making yourself whole again only leads you closer to another beautiful catastrophe?

MY REVIEW

A Beautiful Catastrophe by Katheryn Kiden
Shay & Deacon
BEAUTIFUL AND BREATH TAKING
5 Catastrophic stars

Brace yourselves, this one is catastrophic and unpredicted. This is a love story for the ages. It’s warmth and powerful words will take you on a journey so shattering yet rewarding that your heart will never be the same. It’s profound, it’s tragic, and yet it’s even comical at times. I was glad I got to read this one. I’m sure there will be people out there that will knock this story for the simple fact that it’s not all hearts and flowers. Well, get a clue peeps.. LIFE is NOT all hearts and flowers. This book is amazing! I am forever changed after reading this.

Shay is suffering from the loss of a loved one and recuperating from a heart transplant. She’s a lost soul, wondering through life without any direction. She believes herself to be not worthy of the new life she’s been given. Her life is about to take on a whole new meaning…

Enter Deacon! Deacon is a doctor at the hospital Shay goes to have her new ticker checked up on. He is also suffering a great loss and therefore he is also going through the motions of life almost the same way Shay is. When their two worlds collide will they explode into a million pieces or will they be the glue that mends their broken lives back together?

The supporting character cast isn’t too large. Tyler is Shay’s doctor and also Deacon’s BFF. He and his wife Mia are very compassionate and caring to both Shay and Deacon, but also, very witty as well. The only other supporting character that bares mentioning is August, Shays friend. He’s there for her when she needs to release some anger.

The storyline is absolutely perfect. The characters prevailing and relatable. The tension is a slow build, but oh so damn worth it. The pacing is an even keel and the writing style effortless to read. This is my first Katheryn Kiden book, but it won’t be my last. Loved it!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Katheryn was born in Maine and has lived there her entire life. Growing up, she was the only girl out of five children. Out of four loving, but hard-assed, brothers she has been set on fire TWICE, shot at, left with a burning car and a five gallon container of gas, scared out of her mind every time they got behind the wheel, and has enough hilarious stories and amazing memories to fill a million books. It made her independent and every female character she writes reflects strength and independence.
Katheryn books are full of page turning suspense, humor, and enough steam to overheat your e-reader.
“There are no weak women, just weak moments.”
