Hey Everyone!!! :-)
Happy Monday!! I hope you all have a wonderful week! To start you out right, here's my monthly indie book review! :-)
Dark Lycan by Barbara Chioffi:
In spite of Tara's early loss, she's a rather sheltered, innocent young woman. Partly as a result of her inexperience, she makes the decision to trust a man she shouldn't trust and that decision ends badly for her. Her rescuer, Jared, has to try to help her overcome the trauma of her abduction and accept some secrets about herself that her family has been keeping.
This is not the first of Ms. Chioffi's stories I've read. As much as I love each story, I'm always amazed that the next one surpasses the last and Dark Lycan is no exception! Five stars, and I can't wait to read the next installment in her Mystic Hearts series. :-)
Shocking Finds by Tracey Clark:
I enjoyed this story, but I found the beginning a bit slow. I would have liked to know more about the characters and the world they lived in sooner, so that I could start forming the emotional connection to them that I need in order to care about what happens to them. This is the first book in the series, so I'll be interested to see how Ms. Clark develops the story in future books.
Home Is The Sailor by Jolie Mason:
I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Ari and Caden are both the walking wounded, but they have both found ways to cope with their trauma and rise above it. Still, it's a delicate balance and it takes a leap of faith for them to open themselves up and let the love they've always held for each other free. Their story is a sweet romance that's chock full of steamy encounters. This is only book one of the series, and I'm really looking forward to reading the next book to see where Ms. Mason takes her story.
