Review:

A Dash of Love by Jill Sanders is a sweet romantic temptation. I found the main characters funny, charming, and three-dimensional. Their lives were lonely, sad, and moving slowly until they met each other. Now, their world has just gotten complicated. A young man who lost his only mother figure is now coming back to make his business thrive. Only, he didn’t expect a beautiful minx to tempt him back into relationships. The young woman is working to prove herself. Working hard, determined, and not ready to settle, she soon find a hot tempting carpenter who sparks her insides.

A Dash of Love has melted my heart. The story was realistic. I can see the characters acting like this in real life. Their banters were fun to follow. I couldn’t stop laughing or falling in love with them. The backstories of both Parker and Sarah made me root for them harder. Jill Sanders captured life at both it’s weakest and strongest points. I loved reading, A Dash of Love. Overall, I would highly recommend it others.

Review: Evokations by Hawkins

 

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:
EVOKATIONS is a spiritual awakening, a term I’ve coined to implement the meditative healing of America’s very soul.
The thoughts and emotions conjured EVOKE figurative pillars of esoteric collaboration where semantics, style, and purpose adjoin feelings within the principal scope one calls the promise of TODAY.
Therefore, one can internalize, as free will demonstrates, that Humans, Nubians, plus Oceanic and Stellar Beings alike, shall literarily grasp at the ideological straws of peace and compassion for the mind, through the self, and ultimately counteract the various negativities which LIE within current earthly cerebral and logistical illusion. 

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

Evokations by Hawkins is an easy read. It’s a beautiful collection of prose on various subjects that intermingle with each other. Themes such as peace, compassion, free will and many others. Humanity shines through each piece. This collection of poetry is different than what I normally read but it only takes minutes to go through the book. A calmness reigns as I went through it. There’s a religious theme that centralizes everything written here. I thought it was well-done. Overall, Evokations is an entertaining book that I recommend to all.

Review:

Break Away by Lavendar Jade is a great YA read. The journey has a lot to offer. Plenty of ups and downs…and the scenes went by fast. The story way believable. Just like the writer mentioned, it is a quick read. Emotional and entertaining. I got this book from the author. 

Review: Meeting of the Mustangs

 

Synopsis:

For hundreds of years, generations of wild mustangs have roamed large parts of the western United States. Many of these magnificent animals can live their entire lives without ever seeing a single human being. Being completely self-sufficient, they inhabit the wilderness in groups, living together peacefully and posing no threat to any of the other animals with which they share the land.

Through knowledge that has been passed down to them from their ancestors, these horses are masters of survival and know what things to fear and how to protect themselves from those dangers.

This is the story of a special horse. His life begins much the same as the other young horses in his group, but will turn out to be much different. Through no fault of his own, he is separated from everything he has come to know and thrown into an entirely different way of life. Although his world changes drastically, his adventures continue until he finds himself in the unexpected position to repay a kindness that was once shown to him.

Friendship can sometimes be found in the least likely forms, in the most difficult times.

Ratings: 5 stars

Review:

Meeting of  the Mustangs by Cathy Kennedy is almost like that of White Fang and Call of the Wild. The tale instantly sweeps readers into a young horse’s perspective. Everything is seen and analyzed through the animal’s eyes. I enjoyed reading this adventure story. The journey was challenging but good. The plot is one that will melt every reader’s heart. Animals are pure and innocent and when facing dangers by both the wild and by cruel human beings we want to jump in and rescue the animal. But somehow everything works out…if nature allows it to happen. The wild is an extraordinary place. One that captivates all. I found myself intrigued, about the black colt and his journey. Overall, this was a quick and entertaining read. I recommend it to all animal lovers.

 

Review: Forsaken

 

Synopsis:

Journey into the darkness… A child learns that he possesses the power to heal, and the terrible consequences that come with it. Sinister forces rise in opposition when a man tries to atone for the wrong he’s done. Welcome to Forsaken. Where people can’t simply move away after discovering the house is haunted. Where an innocent gift becomes one woman’s heaviest burden. From a friendly game of Russian roulette to a bachelor party that goes completely off the rails, happy endings are overrated.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Forsaken by Bryant Wiley is an excellent collection of short stories to read. All the tales within are dark, edgy, and intriguing. The suspense of what comes keeps me turning the pages in a haste to read it all. The writer’s talent is brilliant. I feel like I was taken from my chair and straight into the book. Each story was like another mini movie that stretched before me. I find it entertaining. Forsaken contains eight well-written and highly developed tales for all to enjoy. I like reading it, and I highly recommend it to readers everywhere.
