They are unique and can add an element to a story. I was drawn to this book first by the book cover and second by the concept of the story. I got both the audio and ebook versions of this book. Which I started out with the audio version.  When I got to the halfway point of the audio book, I realized that I could not remember a thing that had happened. Therefore, I read the ebook as I

The Veil

  Isabelle Ayala just lost her job and is desperate to make ends meet. Valentino Greco is a wealthy man who trusts no one and one night with him will change both of their lives. Isabelle’s best friend invites her to attend an annual masquerade ball but fails to tell her about the dark secret surrounding the ball. Juggling two identities, contracts, secrets, lies, and passion will drive anyone crazy. The Veil is jam packed with constant twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat. My Review This is the third book I have read from author, V.B. Emanuele. Just like the other two books, she really infuses such life into her characters that I the reader become so invested in them, that they are a part of me. That is what happened with this book.  Isabelle and Valentino are great together. They may have started out as casual acquaintances but that changed fairly quickly the longer they spent in one another's company. You could say that the intensity went from a spark to f

Stranger Love

  Blurb      Rose   They say you’ll have the time of your life at university, but it was the handsome stranger in a local bar who gave me mine. Our connection was instantaneous, our conversation littered with inappropriate teasing. And his kiss. Blew. My. Mind. Going home with him was never in doubt. The next day, he promised to call, but I never heard from him again. Trying not to feel rejected, I decided to look at my one night stand as an experience fitting of college life. The unexpected baby wasn’t part of the deal though. I wasn’t down for that particular experience. I’m a final year student and the timing is awful. But despite delivering babies for a living, Callum’s not happy about the pregnancy, making accusations and assumptions every time we meet.  He treats me as if I’m his enemy, and if he’s not careful he’ll make me one, pushing me away for good.     Callum   The green-eyed girl from the bar is standing in my hospital, looking at an ultrasound scan in her hands. I hoped

Red Is My Heart

  How can you mend a broken heart? Do you write a letter to the woman who left you - and post it to an imaginary address? Buy a new watch, to reset your life? Or get rid of the jacket you wore every time you argued, because it was in some way ... responsible? Combining the wry musings of a rejected lover with playful drawings in just three colours - red, black and white - bestselling author of  The Red Notebook,  Antoine Laurain, and renowned street artist Le Sonneur have created a striking addition to the literature of unrequited love. Sharp, yet warm, whimsical and deeply Parisian, this is a must for all Antoine Laurain fans.   My Review This is not typically my kind of book but I really enjoyed it a lot. The poems really told stories of love lost. You could feel the anguish. Each story really spoke to me in a profound way. There is not one story/poem that I could pick as my favorite as I loved them all. Every reader who reads this book will relate in at least one of these stories. T
