My Thought... 5 Stars!!

This is one of many Brenda Joyce’s books that I could not put down when I started reading it. It was magnificent and beautifully written. Elle and Sean are strong and full of determination characters. Elle's personality might be annoying at times but that was part of the magic and charmed that makes this book truly amazing.

My Thought... 5 Stars!!

Lisa Kleypas is a new author for me. This is the first book by her that I read. She delivers a story with grace and elegance. Cam Rohan, the hero in this story was just mind-blowing astonishing. Amelia was a lovable and charming heroine, but she was a bit overprotective towards her sibling but that make her more appealing to the readers. She was the ideal match for Cam! With their quirks and flaws, all the Hathaway’s siblings were amazing. Great family, Great book, and can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the Hathaway series...
