Reviews Goodbye Paradise by Sarina Bowen





Title: Goodbye Paradise
Author: Sarina Bowen
Series: Hello Goodbye
Release Date: March 21st 2017


Synopsis

Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh and Caleb called it home.

In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world.

But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves.

It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret.

Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires.

Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels?

Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord's name in vain, and love against the kitchen counter. This book was previously released under the title: In Front of God & Everyone.

Review by Amy

***4 stars, voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy***

This was a mostly sweet, sweet story. Joshua and Caleb have been raised on a polygamist colony farm all their lives. They're both approaching the age where the males are kicked out unless they're deemed worthy. Both Josh and Caleb have rather impure thoughts about each other, at least by the colony's standards. When Josh is quite suddenly removed from the farm, Caleb is desperate to find him; luckily, they had a quick and tentative plan in place should this occur.

Caleb adjusts more quickly and easily to the "normal" world than Josh; I was actually a bit surprised by how much more forward Caleb was with Josh. The truck driver that helps is probably the sweetest, kindest man I've read in a long, long time and the letters between him and Josh later in the book were fantastic.

Caleb and Josh are able to find sanctuary and help from a previous colony member and her husband. They graciously welcome and fold both men into their lives seamlessly. Josh feels like a bit of a "moocher" since he's not working, but he eventually finds his niche in caring for Daniel & Maggie's baby.

Caleb & Josh's journey wasn't without potholes and missteps. It's about them learning to love, trust and believe in each other. I think their journey was beautiful and I'll definitely read more in this series.


Review by Stephanie



Brilliant! Sarina is just... Gah!

Out two MC's are from a cult Compound in Wyoming. The beginning of the book shows us a little of what life was like for them growing up there. I will say I am thankful that that's not completely what the book is about though. Our guy Josh gets blamed for a theft and gets booted from said Compound.
Only, he didn't know that Caleb had a plan. Caleb always knew it would happen, just not the when.

So that night, Caleb joins Josh, and they journey across the US with a very interesting character they meet at a truck stop. Washington, the driver,  is probably one of my favorite characters. granted after the beginning, his role is quite small. There's just something about him though. He's so calm and just, chill. He's the guy you'd want as your grandfather. The letters between Washington and Josh are just so adorable. Josh is just so adorable.

Anyway, Josh and Caleb run away to their dear friend 's sister's place in Massachusetts. Let's just say the name of her farm is pretty clever. Maggie is so delighted to FINALLY get some more people out of the Compound. But, the guys don't want to take advantage too much, so they quickly make themselves useful to Maggie and her growing family.

This really was just a great story of coming out and trusting each other, and making yourself a family whether it's blood or not. Caleb and Josh are just so damn special. Even when Caleb is being a sacrificial lamb and breaking Josh's heart. Speaking  of... way to make us cry at THE END of a book!!! I mean, seriously?? lol I joke, it was totally worth it!! Especially seeing Josh rally for the cause!

I absolutely cannot wait for the second book. This one gave me life and I'm really hoping the next one will as well.

5 wonderful stars!

book blurb
The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.

If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal's desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I've got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.

But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…

But where there’s a Will…

excerpt

I’m asking for a tissue when he sweeps me up into his arms and kisses me. His mouth covers mine, nothing tentative about it. It’s a masterful kiss, him claiming my mouth over and over again. My arms twine around his neck, when what I should be doing is pushing him away with a Scarlett O’Hara “I do dee-clayah! Mr. Munroe!” But I don’t. Instead, I pull him closer, feeling the scrape of his stubble against my cheek. He tastes like breath mints from heaven, or something else celestial and minty fresh. When we finally pull apart—which body does not want, but brain insists on—I find I can finally exhale. Will lowers me back to the ground like I’m floating back out of a dream, back to my job and the school and…the fact that I’m still doing my job at the school.

While snogging a parent.

Snogging’s a great word.
Okay, brain. Let’s get back to it.

“That was…” Will’s voice trails off. The tone is deep, rugged, sexy.

I respond, “Shhweee.” I think I was looking for the word sweet, but we’ll never know.

“Very,” he agrees. He steps away, even though every molecule in my body right now is telling me to fling myself back at this tall, infuriating, infuriatingly gorgeous man. But just as I’m about to throw caution and my bra to the wind, someone adorable comes bouncing up to us, her mouse-eared hoodie still on.

Review by Iza

Oh my God, was this a roller coaster of a book!

The highs, the lows and everything in-between gave me palpitations! And I am so not a fan of angst but I had to read this one, after really liking book one.

I had to take a few breaks, here and there, because it was getting too much. I was either getting pissed or frustrated - I hate Javier, let it be said and known, I'm so not #TeamJavier - but I loved Vicente.

And Violet? She was a strong character, having gone through a lot of things, being hit with truths, left and right but still standing.

You really don't have to read the books with Violet and Vicente's parents, if you don't want to. Ms. Halle wrote these in a way that you get it all.

It was a good one. 4.5 stars. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.

Being worshipped and adored by a growing legion of rabid, football obsessed fans.
But gaining a reputation as English football’s newest bad boy—not so much.

Review Mystery at Maplemead Castle by Kitty French




Title: Mystery at Maplemead Castle
Author: Kitty French
Series: The Chaplewick Mysteries
Release Date: March 17th 2017

Synopsis

Welcome to Chapelwick, a leafy English town in the hills of Shropshire, where chocolate pecan cookies come with a helping of sabotage.

Maplemead Castle is crawling with ghosts, and the new owners need them gone. When Melody Bittersweet and the Girls’ Ghostbusting Agency arrive on scene, they quickly identify the troublemakers swinging from the chandeliers… literally. 

A century ago, stunning trapeze artist Britannia Lovell plunged to her death, and has done every night since. But did she really just fall, or was there something more to her demise?

Forced to work with Leo Dark, her scoundrel ex, and infuriating, irresistible reporter Fletcher Gunn, Melody’s investigative powers are under strain (i.e. lost in a pink mist of lust and confusion). She needs her team on top form, but best friend Marina’s cake pipeline goes AWOL, assistant Artie’s distracted by a giant sausage roll, and the pug is scared witless by a lion.

Somewhere, hidden in the castle, is a heart-breaking secret, but what will it take to find it? And is there a chance it could set Britannia free, or is she doomed to repeat her last fateful act forever?

Review by Iza


I loved this book!


Before you read it, though, I strongly suggest you go to book 1 and read that first, because it's not a standalone and you won't want to miss out on more fun.

Because that's what these books are: fun! 

Okay, so there's more to them than just plain ol' fun. I actually got teary-eyed at this one. Or did I cry?

Anyway, Ms. French has got some serious talent in weaving these mysteries and making you want more, crave more. Throw in the ghosts and an ex and a current flame? Oh boy!

Speaking of current flame, I love Fletch and I just want more of him in book 3! Hopefully, something more happens between Melody and him. It's killing me to see them be crazy about each other without being together. I kinda wanna see them as a couple. 

I'm eagerly waiting for book 3. Hopefully, it will come soon. 

I highly recommend this series. It has it all! 

4.5 stars. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.
