REVIEW: True North by Liora Blake

true north by Liora Blake

I bought True North on a whim on the hunt for a great rock star romance, and after a Goodreads recommendation. Liora Blake is a totally new to me author but the book had good reviews and I was so glad I read it. Let’s start with the hero, Trevor (aka Trax). I really enjoyed that he wasn’t just an ordinary rock star hero. No, he was a baggy jeans wearing, cocky rapper, and the difference was great and very refreshing, and sets this story apart from some of the other rock star…

The Great Village Show by Alexandra Brown

Inspired to return to the village of Tindledale after reading the first Christmassy instalment, I was excited to get my hands on The Great Village Show by Alexandra Brown on NetGalley. This book has a lot of intermingling stories running through it, held together by acting head teacher of Tindledale Village School, Meg Singer. She has lived in the village for most of her life and loves being a part of the village community, keen to play an organisational role in the upcoming Village Show. Following last year’s disastrous attempt,…

Dream a Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher

A friend of mine recommended Giovanna Fletcher to me a while back, and I’m so glad I followed her advice and picked up Dream a Little Dream. This novel is all about Sarah, a seemingly average woman who has been single for the past five years following a long-term relationship with Dan, her university boyfriend. To make matters worse, she continually has to see Dan with his perfect new partner at their weekly pub quiz sessions with their mutual friends. She finds this incredibly uncomfortable, especially when she sees everyone…

You, Me and Other People by Fionnuala Kearney

You, Me and Other People by Fionnuala Kearney might be categorised as a contemporary romance, but what this novel really does is examine relationships rather than love, and question whether they can be rebuilt after a breach of trust. The book opens with Beth Hall having recently discovered that her husband of twenty years, Adam, has been having an affair behind her back. As this is his second indiscretion after a one-night stand several years ago, Beth knows that she cannot forgive him this time and has thrown him out…

Sunshine and Spaniels by Cressida McLaughlin

There are times when we read a novel, short-story or novella, and we just don’t have enough to say for a full review, so we thought it would be a good idea to write mini reviews that are, well… mini. So, here you go. If you have any questions about any of the books we review here, then just leave them in the comments and we will reply as soon as we can. The Last Hour of Gann by R. Lee Smith – Reviewed by Carolyn I found my review of this book recently….

The Piano Man Project by Kat French

A romance novel with plenty of comedic twists, The Piano Man Project by Kat French caught my attention on NetGalley with its unique approach to finding the main character a date. The novel begins in one of the most unconventional ways I’ve ever experienced, with Honeysuckle Jones and her two friends, Tash and Nell, in a sex shop discussing orgasms. Both of Honey’s friends are shocked to discover that she has never had an orgasm with a man, yet Honey claims that it has never been a problem for her…

high strung

I started the Power Station series on a recommendation. Plus, I love a bit of rock star romance. Book number one is High Strung and tells the story of man whore bassist Dan and down on her luck bartender, want to be Wall Street financial analyst Ashlyn in a very unlikely pairing. I wasn’t an immediate fan of both of the lead characters at the start. Dan is totally smug and cock sure and Ashlyn a bit of a shrieky loon. Doing really crazy things to begin with – ok she…
