#BookReview – The Chase (The ICON Trilogy #1) By Vanessa Fewings


Don’t miss The Chase, the first in a sizzling new romantic trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Vanessa Fewings and HQN Books.

Will she risk it all for a priceless desire?

A rising star in one of London’s top art investigation firms, Zara Leighton’s talent for seeing deep into paintings is in her blood. She’s chosen to help track down Icon, an enigmatic international art thief whose heists are methodical, daring, baffling. To Zara the case is maddening—bordering on an obsession.

She finds distraction in the chiseled form of top-shelf client Tobias Wilder, a magnetic American billionaire who demands her expertise, her discretion—and her secrecy. Wilder doesn’t ask questions. He gives orders. His gaze alone ignites her deepest fantasies. And his touch…

The sudden whirl of exclusive exhibitions and decadent parties that Wilder introduces her to is a potent aphrodisiac. But surrender soon becomes tinged with suspicion. Is Zara’s tryst with Wilder the real thing…or just a convincing forgery? Continue reading “#BookReview – The Chase (The ICON Trilogy #1) By Vanessa Fewings”

Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn Caruthers has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood still holds her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man, and knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.

But years ago, Lucas left town and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.

#BookReview -The Bollywood Bride by Sonali Dev


Ria Parkar is Bollywood’s favorite Ice Princess–beautiful, poised, and scandal-proof–until one impulsive act threatens to expose her destructive past. Traveling home to Chicago for her cousin’s wedding offers a chance to diffuse the coming media storm and find solace in family, food, and outsized celebrations that are like one of her vibrant movies come to life. But it also means confronting Vikram Jathar. 

Ria and Vikram spent childhood summers together, a world away from Ria’s exclusive boarding school in Mumbai. Their friendship grew seamlessly into love–until Ria made a shattering decision. As far as Vikram is concerned, Ria sold her soul for stardom and it’s taken him years to rebuild his life. But beneath his pent-up anger, their bond remains unchanged. And now, among those who know her best, Ria may find the courage to face the secrets she’s been guarding for everyone else’s benefit–and a chance to stop acting and start living.

Rich with details of modern Indian-American life, here is a warm, sexy, and witty story of love, family, and the difficult choices that arise in the name of both.

I received this e-book from NetGalley and Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review.

I finished this book about a month ago. It was a fast read and I needed a distraction in the doctor’s offices I frequent more and more as I get father into my pregnancy.

While the book is a nice stand alone romance I was really hoping for more insight into India and the Bollywood industry. Almost the entire book takes place in Chicago and only has minor flashbacks to times in India but no real description other than conversations.

Ria is plagued by the abandonment she feels after her father dies when she is 18. She thinks because of her mother’s mental illness that caused her mother to set house that her father was burdened with raising her and after he dies she should become an actress to put her mother in a facility that can watch her. I’m not really sure where these feelings come from and you only learn why she feels this way toward the very end of the book. I would have preferred this info at the beginning.

I keep having to search my mind for something that really stands out in this story and I can’t seem to find anything.

Boy and girl grow up liking eachother, girl has perceived family obligation that for some reason leads her to leave said boy and break his heart. Reunion at cousin’s upcoming wedding causes old feelings to emerge both of love and hate. In the end love wins out.

Very cookie cutter story that I honestly didn’t think about again once I finished reading it.

It wasn’t a bad story but wasn’t anything to get excited about either.

I’m going to say it’s good for a light read or something by the pool or just to pass the time.

For the last six months, Diego Beauchamp had been the rock-solid pillar of support for the Morgan Foundation’s newest Pack. His strong leadership brought Regina and Harry through the most difficult time of their lives and now, he had to do the same for Cole.

But this time everything goes horribly wrong, jeopardizing the very core of the Pack and threatening to expose Diego’s carefully protected secrets and the past he has so carefully tried to forget.

The past won’t be ignored any longer. Continue reading “#BookReview – Uncivil Wars (BB#2) by Wendi Kelly & Deborah Dorchak”
