Love's Suicide Review

Love's Suicide
By Jennifer Foor

Goodreads  |  Amazon  |  B & N  |  iTunes

My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too na├»ve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.

That’s where my story should have ended.

Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.

The only question was…

Would I give it to him

I’m Katy Michaels and this is my story.

My Review

After reading the synopsis for Love's Suicide I was very intrigued. A girl in love with two twin bothers was not a story you heard everyday.

Soooo much happened to Katy, it almost felt like too much for one book! While I felt sorry for many of the things she had to deal with, I did not agree with some of the decisions she made. Certain things could have been handled better which would have spared some of the problems and hurt.

The reason I kept reading was Brooks. He was a great character, a good person. I had to find out if he would get his HEA.

Through it all I was always rooting for Katy and Brooks. They were truly soul mates and deserved to be together.

Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars. After reading Love's Suicide, I was emotionally exhausted! The 2nd story Love Survives is out now and it is told from Brook's POV.

Losing the Ice Blog Tour and Giveaway

Losing the Ice
by Jennifer Comeaux
Series: Ice #2
Release date: February 23rd 2015
Purchase: Amazon

Courtney and Josh are in love and excited to finally compete as skating partners. When they take the ice for their first competition, they want to show everyone, especially Josh's family, they are the perfect pair.

But ice is slippery, and one misstep puts all their dreams in jeopardy. Now they must show each other both their love and their partnership are strong enough to survive.

My Review

Losing the Ice jumps right into the action. It's been a few months since the end of Crossing the Ice, and Josh and Courtney are at their first big skating competition as a new pair. Courtney and Josh are an amazing couple, and even though their love and partnership is put to the test, I never once worried it wouldn't work out. Jennifer has created such a strong, loving bond between the two that nothing could break them up.

Even dealing with his injury, Josh is still a hunky, swoon inducing lead. Courtney handles everything in stride, including Josh's horrible family, while still being her sassy self! Surprisingly, by the end of the book I was hating Stephanie (Josh's sister) much less. Turns out the witch has a heart after all!

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars! My only complaint was that Losing the Ice ended so quickly - I think I read it in one sitting! But no worries because Jennifer has already started on the next book in Josh and Courtney's series!

The Ghost of You Blog Tour and Giveaway

The Ghost of You
by Amanda Burckhard
Release Date: 12/30/14
Swoon Romance

Summary from Goodreads:
Emmy has everything she’s ever wanted: a hot boyfriend she adores, great friends, a promising future, and even a well-connected family. But one night rips it all away.

A car accident shatters her world, claiming the lives of her twin brother and her best friend. In the wake of the accident, her friends drift away, her family falls apart, and her boyfriend cheats.

The grief is more than she can handle, so she finds escape at the bottom of a bottle of painkillers. Taking the pills makes her brother alive again, if only in her head. Seeing and talking to her brother as if he were still alive is the only thing that keeps her going. Until Logan King moves to town.

Logan sees past the mask of pristine popularity she wears in public and he’s the only one who can tell she hasn’t moved on. His uncanny ability to read her forces her to open up and she starts to fall for him, no matter how unwilling she is to admit it. But Emmy isn’t the only one keeping secrets and when a close brush with death sparks events that bring everything to light, Emmy will have to decide what’s more important: learning how to forgive and move on, or holding onto the pills and the ghost of her past.

My Review

The Ghost of You drew me into the story, I felt compelled to finish once I started reading. While the subject matter (drugs, losing a loved one) are very heavy, Burckhard balances the story very well. 

I found it very intriguing that Emmy knew the hallucination of her brother Derek was all in her mind, even though she was taking pain pills to keep seeing him. I was very interested to find out what happens to Emmy, if she would ever get the help for her addiction that she needed.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars. The Ghost of You told the story of a teen struggling to deal with the death of her twin brother. The ending gave hope for others who may be struggling with similar issues and by spreading this message maybe they can get the help they need.

Buy The Ghost of You on Amazon.
