I’m surprised by how much I enjoyed this. The childhood boyfriend who goes away to college and comes back a changed man plot is nothing new, and I either enjoy or loathe love triangles depending on my mood and the story. Black Swan Affair is decidedly different though. Mystery, backstabbing, and selfless love elevate what could be your typical love triangle into something wonderfully complex and unpredictable.

Perhaps my expectations for Thief of Hearts were a tad too high. When I read the synopsis, I had visions of Julia Roberts and George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven dancing in my head as I envisioned a massive heist/love affair placed in a fine art setting. The book may lack the wow factor I anticipated, but it is still quite charming.
The Sugar Bowl series by Sawyer Bennett has proven to be one intense, mysterious, and sexy trilogy. Sugar Free is the highly anticipated conclusion.
Transfer is the second book in the Retrieval Duet. I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into this continuation, and hallelujah it’s a juicy one. The story picks up seconds after the plot-twisting, stomach churning cliffhanger at the end of Retrieval and continues to propel readers through an adrenaline rush of a plot.

Go ahead and call me a skeptic. I read The Pact and The Lie, and I confess I’m in the minority of people who didn’t care for either. I’d all but given up on the McGregor series. In fact, I was thisclose to not reading The Debt, but some friends encouraged me by saying the series keeps getting better. I decided to take a chance on this book—fully prepared for disappointment mind you—and it really paid off. You can tell Karina Halle put a great deal of thought and time in developing two amazingly sympathetic characters. When Jessica and Keir meet, it’s surprising how very similar they are. Both are with dealing PTSD—albeit in different ways. Jessica was a victim of a terrorist attack, leaving her physically impaired, so her scars are more visible. However, Keir’s wounds are no less real. In addition, the choices they made in the past have resulted in emotional devastation in the present. You wind up with two shattered individuals who are drowning in pain, guilt, and many secrets, but they just may be able to help heal each other’s brokenness. “I love every broken part of you and how well it fits with every broken […]
