I am an avid reader and mom of 4 great kids. In my spare time you can always find me reading a book. I love to read . I have read alot of books . I use to read all paperbacks and hard cover books , then about 1 1/2 yrs ago I bought a Nook Color E -Reader and things have not been the same since . In the first yr of owning my Nook I read roughly about 200 Books . YES it is true . My E- Reader was the best thing I EVER bought for myself and I am so Happy that I made the decision to buy one . Now I own a Kindle Fire HD and I Love it even more then my Nook Color. As far as What I like to read . I like All kinds of Genres . Some of my favorite ones are Contemporary Romance , Young Adult , Paranomal , True Stories, and Erotica . To me a great book involves a Great story line , if A book can hook me in the first few pages I am in heaven and will read it through . I have not found many books that I have not followed through with and read . I do LOVE a great love story in a book , one that makes me smile , laugh when something is funny , makes my heart race, my heart stop , makes me cry . I love when there is a happy ending . I also love Alpha males , the ones that got attitude , hot looking, masculine , can keep their woman in line , protective , possessive , but also have a big heart at the same time .
The Weakness in Me - Josie Leigh I had the pleasure of receiving a copy of this book from Josie, in return for an honest review. “Don’t hold on to promises you are no longer meant to keep- Caleb”I liked the Prologue in this Book. It gave us a little bit about how Samantha Met Caleb. In the first chapter Samantha is dealt with a Tragedy , when she and Caleb are in a car accident and He dies at the scene . The Paramedic who comes to the scene is Samantha's Ex Fiance/ Best friend . When Jason takes one look at Samantha in the car he Prays to god that she is ok. When Samantha Wakes up in the hospital she finds out that Caleb has died in the accident. She is also faced with the fact that Jason who she has not seen in 5 yrs is in her hospital room , and she does not understand what he is doing there. Samantha was a strong character in this book. Although she was devastated by her husbands Death she knew she needed to move on with her life and continue to heal from the accident because she had her daughter to raise. “You know you’ve always been able to count on me…you should never doubt me again"She excepts Jason help as a "friend" and agrees to try to re-build their friendship that they use to have. Jason , I loved him, he was a true best friend, he did not push Samantha at all. He stepped right up to the plate and helped her with Corigan her daughter. I like how this story did not just Jump right into Samantha and Jason being together after Caleb Died. I love how they built their friendship back up first. “Samantha's head was screaming at her to stop, but her heart and her body were both giving her the finger.”Jason's Mom and Missy OMG I wanted to smack them both so many times through out this book. I don't understand how ANY mother could do what she did to Jason, and I can't understand How Missy could do what she did to her Best friend. Although once it all came out , I understand it all a little better, BUT still who does something like that to someone. Book Blurb:Samantha and Jason have known each other since they were five. Their friendship turned to love that was supposed to last forever. However, betrayal ripped them apart just as they were getting ready to start their lives together. Five years later, Jason comes face to face with his Sammy when he's called to the scene of a horrific accident. Seeing her bruised and battered awakens a love he knew he'd missed, but didn't know how much until he'd almost lost her.Samantha is left to battle back from an accident that took away her husband and almost took her life. Facing her future as a single mother, Samantha allows Jason back into her life because she knows she needs help to create a new life without Caleb. As they begin to find their way back to each other, there are those waiting in the wings for the right moment to tear them apart again. Can Samantha find a way to trust Jason again after everything?“I’m in love with you, Sammy. I know it’ll always be you. I have no doubt about that… but I’m willing to wait until you see it, too" This is definitely a good read, It is a slow build of a friendship that was lost , and a Samantha coming to the realization that She does still love Jason. I like how we got to see Samantha go through the grieving stages and actually dealt with her husbands death before just moving on with Jason. ARC provided by Josie for Review :)
