Review - S.E.C.R.E.T. by L.Marie Adeline - 4 Star

I just finished reading S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline. I found her opening of the book very strong. Her descriptions were unique and I was compelled to continue reading what was in store for Cassie Robichaud, a lonely beaten down woman working in a cafe in New Orleans. Actually, almost anything written, set in New Orleans grabs my attention. It's on my bucket list to visit it one day.

Cassie's development to a confident woman enjoying sexual fulfillment is fun and a hot read - what woman wouldn't want to experience the men that she is set up with! Her character is credible and like-able. The other characters provided good foils. 
Adeline surprised me with the ending and I liked that! Overall, the book was well written and entertaining. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Hunger Games Review - WOW!

All I can say like many other people is WOW! The story is mesmerizing and the characters were so rounded. I had many a late night reading these books. Truth be told I actually looked forward to going to bed to READ and that says a lot considering the hot man I lay next to every night. Very high praise indeed! 

What an entertaining and captivating series of books. Told in first person present voice the author nails it. You are with Katniss every step of the way, with the author outlining very convincingly her inner struggles, balancing with creative  and realistic scene descriptions.

Desmond read this. Did I say read? He devoured in a single gulp and suggested I read it. Thank you Des. But more importantly, thank you Suzanne Collins. You not only write an amazing story but you are an inspiration to aspiring authors.
