Review: The Significant Other by Nicole Strycharz 

Synopsis:

Adam: I swore off men years ago to protect myself. I don’t trust guys. Guys break hearts, they take, and they don’t give like women do. That’s why for the past ten years I’ve entrusted my heart to a tattooed, multi-hair colored, vixen named Trix. Trixie is my safe haven. She doesn’t just back up my voice in our band she backs me in life. 
Sadly, I don’t reciprocate like I should. My phobia of PDA and my over-protectiveness are hard to put up with. It might be because I need more than I let on. More than I would dare to admit to. 
We moved to NY to grow as a band but then I met ‘him’…our boss; a sexy as hell, bad boy with a convict’s past and a talent for breaking men and women’s hearts alike. He’s bad news… An urban beast with too much edge and he’s prowling around my comfort-zone relationship. 
Now I’m not sure who my significant other is… my girl or the man determined to remind me who I really am and what I truly want. 

Trixie: Coming to the city was our ticket to fame. It was me and Adam against the odds of notoriety but since we arrived in the Big Apple, we’ve also been made aware how small our bubble of safe love is. 
I know what my boyfriend probably hasn’t admitted to himself… that I’m not enough for him. We both are just too chicken to do anything about it. 
New York is changing us. The people we meet here, the emotions we face, even our music… and if there is anything you learn from these streets, it’s this… 
Traffic and life, they both wait for no one. You have to go with the flow, ride the current, and keep up the pace. Both Adam’s love and mine is being tested, or it’s about to end. 
Hopefully we can figure it all out. Oh and add that to my list of to do’s like keeping my twin away from a dangerous drug lord, struggling not to fall from a stranger, keeping the band from falling apart and not becoming a bumbling idiot in front of our criminally hot boss. Yeah…criminal…

Review:

The Significant Other by Nicole Strycharz is another brilliant masterpiece. Striaght and the LGBT community will love this book. Once more, I got another taste of the heart and soul the writer puts into her words. Emotionally, tugging on my heart strings. I cried, I laughed, and I fell in love. Frustrating, stunning, and well-told. The entire tale was nothing but epic. 

Nicole Strycharz created her first novel featuring a gay couple. A man who likes other men. That was until he had his heart broken. Then, he went and fell for Trixie. A female singer. But despite her loving him…something just was missing. Both knew it. Adam just didn’t want to face it and neither did Trixie. Adam is a sexy hot alpha male who easily gets under readers skin, like he did to me. His has a big heart. I noticed that from the beginning. Adam hid himself with Trixie…keeping his heart guarded. Until, they meet their new boss. A boss that is more alpha than Adam, sexy hot too, and has a thing for Adam…

Trixie is a submissive kind of woman. Made her great for Adam. But she wasn’t meant for him. That’s thought love. She knew Adam’s real love and it wasn’t for her. Trixie too, has the biggest heart anyone has read in fiction. Despite her sexy tough looks, lies a sweet engaging woman looking for love. Trixie finds love but it fails…then she has a sister that made me want to hug Trixie. Trixie goes out and beyond for her sister. A sister who will never change…

Overall, The Significant Other is a book I can easily see made into a movie for 18-year-olds and above due to its content. Sex, drugs, and other things. Life is messy, complicated, and unfair. I really enjoyed this novel, because it brought out real life issues that people battle with each day. Believable, intriguing, and well-written. Nicole Strycharz has done it again with her latest piece. I applaud Nicole for her astounding job in creating three-dimensional characters whose stories I’ll never forget. So readers, yes, I highly recommend this talented writer’s book, The Significant Other to all.

Review: The Co-Parent 

Synopsis:

Brianna: My life has always been a little ironic. I’m afraid of the dark, and I’m blind. My parents were my world, but they died in 9/11. I wouldn’t mind a relationship but men perceive me as a burden. So it shouldn’t have been a shocker that the guy I fall in ‘like’ with ends up being a top of the line player from the UK. 
It also shouldn’t have shocked me that the guy that was meant to be a sexy fling; just an erotic encounter to reminisce over, left me more than just a memory. He left me with a bump. 
That’s okay, because when life bitch slapped me into being blind, pregnant and single…I just called ‘plot twist’ and carried on. 
Besides, this little surprise in my belly is relying on me to get it all right. 
So do we really need him? 
Gabriel: Party, drink, sex, work, repeat. Sometimes I’ll throw sleep in there. Aside from that the life of a millionaire has brought me everything, but in the night is when I realize I still have nothing. Being a party animal might be frowned upon but it led me to her. 
She’s the most fascinating woman I’ve ever met and her body and flaming hair make me wild. Can’t trust women, though. That’s why I left. Best not to give women power, but now she’s carrying my child. 
Brianna’s unique, though. She doesn’t want my money, she wants my partnership. She wants to ‘co-parent.’ 
What the bloody hell is a man like me supposed to do with a child? I still live like one. 

So here’s my options. 

Persuade her to forget it.

Walk away or Stay. 

But can I stay? Can I be the co-pilot she needs and the father our child deserves?

Review

The Co-Parent by Nicole Strycharz has hit it off the charts for me like everyone of her previous novels. This story, is a heartfelt and deeply emotional read. I couldn’t get enough of these characters. Once more, this superb writer, has deeply kidnapped me inside of her plot. Fast-paced, thrilling, hilarious, and sexy. It’s difficult to put down this book. Once I poen d it up, I could not let it go. Talk about a high that gets you so addicted…that your only thoughts are…got to have more….and that’s how Nicole Strycharz left me. Her characters are literally out of this world. I laughed, cried, and felt every e option known to humans. Plus, I would hug this writer. Every plot, can have similarities to other fabulously good stories I have read in the past, however, Nicole takes her plot to the next level. Imagine hitting a baseball out of the park and your baseball team ends up scoring more than one homerun…well, that’s what happened here. I can’t describe how amazing this romance novel truly is…but I can say it’s the best of the best. Here, inside The Co-Parent, I have meet a blind woman who lost her family, and is smoking hot. Her personality is like a sugar craving you can’t resist…apparently neither could the player…Gabe. Gabe has his flaws, but beneath all of that he’s the man every mother wants for their girl. There’s more to him than beats the eyes. Together they hit it off and create a phenomenal tale. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to readers worldwide.

He’s the love of my life, the sexy and smart man I saw my future with, but now I don’t think he sees it too. I’m tired of not being seen, I’m tired of not being heard, and I’m tired of being in love alone.

Yeah, she annoys me, we’re total opposites, but I knew that when I met her, she hasn’t changed…maybe I have? I was her anchor, her safety, her home. Now I’m that guy that’s wrecked her and there are plenty of men willing to repair the damage I did. 
So I have a plan. Find out what happened to change my affection for her within the last two years, and win her back before someone else does, because I still love her, and she still loves me….I guess….

Review: The Friend Zone 


Synopsis:

Chloe

Moses has been my best friend since kindergarten. We met when I shoved him face first in the dirt and took his action figures. Ever since, we’ve been tighter than blood, but we’re not blood, and my body knows that. My heart has known that for years. 

The fact that being a pole dancer has interfered with my relationship status is an understatement. Moses is literally the longest I’ve been with a man, except I’m not really ‘with’ him. 
Now I’m approaching a place where I’m curious enough to tell him about my feelings. I’ve gotten close, but a man as hot as my bestie has had really small gaps between girlfriends. I know it could be a big mistake, and he’s never seen me that way, but I won’t know for sure unless I act right? Only problem is, I might be too late again.
Moses:

I’m not blind to the fact that my best friend is dangerously hot. She’s basically every man’s dream but she’s not mine. I’m the one that protects her, councils her, and encourages her, knowing she will do the same for me. She’s my girl. 
But now something is different, and I can’t put a name to it. Something feels changed, but I’m putting all that on the back burner because I think I found my perfect girlfriend. 
Still, Chloe is in my head; I’m not sure she would handle knowing that. After all, I’m in the friend zone…
Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Nicole Strycharz is indeed one of the most talented female writers of this day. Her characters send you into their stories. Making readers want to know every gritty and dark secret they hold. I laughed, cried, and fell deeply in love. Friends is easy. But being good looking plus, awesome friends…tends to stretch the friend zones the characters are inside of…once that is stretched to a boiling, it never goes back to being the same. 

Chloe has known Moses all her life just about and she has fallen head over heels for him. But the issues it that she doesn’t want to admit. At least not until, Moses thinks he has found the girl, the it woman for himself. That’s when all her reserves start unweaving. She wants him. Jealousy, a bit of anger, and so much lust. Chloe doesn’t want to ruin her friendship. She let’s Moses do his thing…but as each day nears, she’s going crazy with not being open about her heart. 

Moses is the guy all women need. He’s the good friend that can be relied on and love.  Love more than a friend…heck yes. He’s sexy as sin with a charming personality to match it. His over protectiveness he feels towards Chloe, his best friend, should give him signs he’s in love with her. But he ignores the feelings. Doesn’t want to ruin his friendship with her. After all, they friend zoned each other. But despite moving on…he can’t stop thinking about Chloe…

The Friend Zone by Nicole Strycharz leds readers on an epic roller coaster ride. I personally would love to see this novel on the big screens. I’m already trying to think of which leading stars will play Chloe and Moses as well as they’re bad dating partners. This novel has a way of wrapping itself deep around me and pulling me further into its plot. Fast-paced, exciting, and heart melting. They are times, I want to shout out at the lead characters and say, “kiss and marry, already! It’s obvious you guys are perfect for one another!” Yet neither one is sure they would make it as a couple. Both are scared of their feelings in a way. It’s so believable…I felt like I was watching the scenes come alive instead of just reading about them. Nicole Strycharz amazed me with her Duke of Goldenshire, then her novel called, The Divorce, and now, this one. I am stunned. Raw talent award goes to…Nicole Strycharz. She doesn’t just write novels, she takes life and captures it into her book and creates real people in her characters. I love it. Can’t get enough of this writer’s novels. She goes out and beyond each time creating the best masterpiece. Nicole Strycharz’s talent knows no boundaries and is limitless, that’s what I love about her books. You can run free and live inside of them. Perfect romance every time. Overall, The Friend Zone is a definite read for all.

Review:

Nicole Strycharz has once again swept readers, like myself, into her latest novel.  This writer definitely knows how to bait, hook, and lure her readers. Instantly was intrigued following the main characters that I love from a previous book as their journey progressed. I was deeply satisfied with the plot. Especially, with the ending. Nicole Strycharz currently has me hooked onto her brilliant writing style. There’s plenty of sass, sweetness, and a seduction that sends readers into a frenzy. Once, readers open this book, they better prepare with the wanting of more reads by Nicole Strycharz in the future. I have been lucky as this writer has kept publishing more dazzling reads to keep me lured. Entertaining Bealtaine; Tales of the Fae brings a world of fantasy and one of love together. It will leave readers questioning whether magic is truly real or just a figment of our imagination. Excellent characterization as expected. After reading this book, I would love to have met each character in real life. Their troubles are so similar to our own it’s hard to believe they’re just fictional pieces created by a mastermind. The novel also brought the theme of family, hope, forgiveness, and a future full of promises. But danger and challenges are ahead for the characters…can love, conquer all? Overall, I highly recommend this Christmas and romance tale to all.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Nicole Strycharz is indeed a talented writer. I can’t see her not writing a book that readers will fall over in love with or beg for more. The writing style is superb. Easy to read and follow along. There’s always an emotional journey that Nicole Strycharz creates in every one of her brilliant novels. I fall in love every single time. I can’t help myself. The emotions tugging at my heart over the characters’ frustrations, struggles, and undeniable love. Anyone you reads this stunning lady’s work and not feel any kind of emotion or connection is lacking life’s good gifts. Laughter, tears, and kisses. Yes, all that and more can be found in this particular read. 

Nollaig Shona Duit; A Christmas Tale by Nicole Strycharz is everything readers will want plus, so much more. I can’t find a single thing wrong with this incredible story. Two irresistible characters, check. A fast moving plot, check. An engaging tale that captures readers hearts and souls, double check. A sexy and sweet romance, absolutely. A novella about finding love, happiness, and new beginnings, definitely inside this book. The main character, Shea is a man to love passionately and to never let go. I want him. That there proves Nicole’s talent. I need to read more about her famous characters. I want to hear and see more. She delivers a promising read that satisfies every readers’ desire. A feel good romance perfect for any day especially, during the holidays. Perfect, sizzling, clean, an well-written. The characters were well-developed. The struggles were believable and kept me turning the pages. I truly love this writer’s work. Overall, I highly recommend this latest novella to all. (P.s. This along with all her other works need to be turned into big screen movies! Just saying…)

Review:

The Divorce by Nicole Strycharz is absolutely phenomenal. The story itself sucked me in whole. It devoured me in entire form. I can’t remember reading a novel especially, a romance novel that made me laugh and cry so hard. The emotional journey was just breath taking. I felt everything like it was me experiencing it all first hand. This is a novel that will go to the big screens and be the one everyone talks about…I highly recommend reading it before they make it into a movie.

I have read Nicole Strycharz’s other works and this one moved me in ways I can’t describe. The characters were three dimensional…the scenes popped to life. I felt happy, excited, sad, angry, and wow…the steamy scenes were good too. I happen to read a lot of of books…say 300 books a year if not more. I know a great novel when I find it and this is definitely one of them. The Divorce is a powerful tale of a couple’s marriage. The ups and downs most couples experience are lived in this story. I could feel the fear and frustrations from both the husband and wife as their love, troubles, and growth continued. As a reader, I was instantly hooked and compelled by the brilliant writing of this talented writer. It’s easy to connect with the characters and their situations as they occured. Love is something we all cherish or should. We need to be loved as to love others…and this novel demonstrates that beautifully. Humans can be so blinded at times and it’s not until we lose something that we are awakened by what we have done. Overall, I seriously recommend this riveting romance tale to readers worldwide. I promise you will fall in love…

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Meadow Creek by Nicole Strycharz is the indeed a must read romance for all. Once again, Nicole Strycharz has delivered a powerful tale that will sweep readers off their feet and onto a journey of discovery. This brilliantly well-written tale consists of death, loss, of a loved one, and the strength to move forward. Courage, hope, and love are also many of the themes we see in Meadow Creek.

Inside this sweet, beautiful, and intriguing read, readers are introduced to a strong independent woman who has lost her husband like many other wives have and struggles to deal with her son’s revelation that his father is gone. Not knowing how to deal with delivering the news, Sloan has decided to move her and her son back to where land has been left by her husband. It’s there where the matter of the heart lies… both her son and a farmhand have her head spinning and her heart tangled up in knots. Being a confident man especially one with a purpose, Joseph will go after Sloan with all he has…but what fate has in store for these three will pull, tug, and captivate readers’ hearts. I loved reading Meadow Creek. Just like all of her previous novels, Nicole Strycharz is a master at hooking her readers until the last page and creating unforgettable characters. Readers beware, this is a superb novel that will be just as addictive as sweets are tempting…Overall, I highly recommend Meadow Creek to readers everywhere.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

OMG! I don’t know where or how to begin telling you all just how AMAZING this historical novel by Nicole Strycharz is. First, readers are dragged into the world where women had little or no choice in matters…just like Abby inside of this story. Her father was a harsh, cold-hearted, and a very cruel man. He didn’t care if she died like her poor Mamma did. Her mother didn’t come from wealth or high standing so her father didn’t care about his dying wife nor their daughter. He thinks of them as extra weight keeping him from reaching his power position. Readers will immediately feel a sense of love and sympathy for Abby has her father punishes her simply because she wouldn’t lie to secure his position and because she fell in love with a stable boy, August. A Valentine for August is indeed a must read for all.

Second, readers will see how strong Abby holds herself up despite all of her father’s evil doing to tear hear and August away…Abby is heroine characters will fall in love with and would love to have as a friend. Third, readers will be surprised at the turn of events that involve Abby’s father, her future, and her man of dreams- August. A Valentine for August is truly heart-melting, suspenseful, and an adventure of a lifetime. I could not stop reading this beautifully told romance by Nicole Strycharz. Her talent shines with every novel she has every written. I highly recommend A Valentine for August to readers worldwide. You will be submerged deep into a historical past that has twists and turns everywhere. An exciting heart-throbbing heated novel that readers simply cannot miss! Best of all, you can read all of her novels in any order and still follow each character’s story. Nicole Strycharz is a new writer to watch out for…

Review: 

A Song for Giselle by Nicole Strycharz is indeed a must read for all. This romance novel will leave readers laughing, falling in love, and held in suspense…Page after page, readers are intrigued. The events feel like moments suspended in time that we get to relive. One man’s determination to go after the one woman who doesn’t want him is hilarious. She quickly leaves him and before they both know it…are brought face-to-face multiple times as their journeys unfold. Fate has a way of showing us what we can’t realize…sometimes love is staring us in the face.

Inside A Song for Giselle, two characters from opposite ends of the social ladder are thrust together. Both have their own struggles and life’s curveballs tossed their way…yet somehow these two individuals find each again and again. I absolutely loved how Nicole Strycharz brilliantly weaves their lives so close together… Neither one is perfect…Both have dark pasts…secrets even. We all know secrets don’t stay hidden long. When things go well…that’s when trouble comes tumbling in lives.  Strong, sexy, and irresistible characters that make readers want to follow them from one end of the planet to the next. Nicole Strycharz has beautifully written a story that will have readers on the edge of their seats waiting for what happens next…

I highly recommend this stunning novel by Nicole Strycharz. A Song for Giselle is the third book in this series and I loved it. I look forward to reading all of the previous novels by this talented new author. She’s now my new favorite. Anyone who is a fan of historical events and romance will want to read this. Overall, this is a story reader will love and won’t place down until every page has been read.
