What He Always Knew by Kandi Steiner

What He Always Knew (What He Doesn't Know, #2)What He Always Knew by Kandi Steiner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars

Left or right? It was as simple as that, yet it was not simple at all.

What He Always Knew is the second book in the series, and it is amazing! I do not even know if I can put into words how much I just love Kandi Steiner, her work, her characters, her worlds. She is just fantastic and this new book is no different. I devoured it! Where I really enjoyed book one, I loved book two! I am not going to give away too much of the plot as you can get that from the synopsis. I just want to continue to gush about my love for these characters!

If you have not read anything by this author, you must go pick these up! I read them on my Kindle, but I will be buying a copy of the paperback as soon as I can to add to my collection! Loved it

What He Doesn't Know by Kandi Steiner (Book One)

What He Doesn't Know (What He Doesn't Know, #1)What He Doesn't Know by Kandi Steiner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Re-Read (2019) 5 Stars

The third book in the series was being released, so I wanted to re-read the first two books. I NEVER re-read, but I previously received an ARC of both books one and two. For certain authors/publicities there is a very short turnaround for reviews. Sometimes I feel like I am rushing through a story to get it up in time. Also, being a mood reader, I am not always in the mood to read a book that quickly. That seems to be the case for this one as I loved this more than I remember.

I feel like I missed so much that happened, so I was happy to jump back into these characters. This was so much more heartbreaking than I remember. Kandi Steiner did a great job pulling you into the emotions of the characters. This deals with so much more than cheating. This deals with love, loss, fertility, and more.

I am excited to re-read the second book and the new book release now!

4.5 Stars

I was sent this book from the publisher. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

I am a huge fan of Kandi Steiner, so I was so excited when I saw she had a new series coming out! I was even more excited when I was given the chance to review the new book.

One thing I loved about this story was that our main characters was in her thirties. So many books takes place as YA or in mid-twenties, so I thought it was great to read about an older character. This also deals with a marriage being tested as our main character does have feeling for an old love. If this will bother you, this will not be for you. I still loved it and flew through this story. I am ready for book two! I just do not think Kandi can do no wrong. She is an amazing story teller and I will continue to pick up anything and everything she puts out in the future.

Never Let Go by Elizabeth Goddard

Never Let Go (Uncommon Justice #1)Never Let Go by Elizabeth Goddard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I had high hopes for this. The prologue was amazing and instantly caught my attention. I knew this was going to be a read that I just did not put down, and I was right.

This involves murder, arson, love, illness, and more. There was so much going in within the story. There was almost a story within a story. I was not expecting anything that happened. There was never a dull moment. I was expecting this to really only follow finding the baby, but it was action packed with things happening at every turn.

I actually really enjoyed the romance between Austin and Willow. I liked that they dated previously, so it was a second chance romance. I actually would have liked to see more around their relationship.

The ending was a little convoluted with new characters. I was not actually a huge fan of how everything wrapped up. Normally I am dying to rush through the end to find out what happens, but with this I was just ready for it to be over. I just started to lose interest with the way the story went towards the ending.

Overall, I enjoyed this though. I would have liked a different ending, but otherwise it was pretty good. I definitely would like to check out more from the author in the future.

Frostblood by Elly Blake

Frostblood (Frostblood Saga, #1)Frostblood by Elly Blake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars
I received Frostblood in a book box so long ago. There are actually two more books in the series already out, that is how long it has been on my shelves. I decided it was time to give it a try or to get rid of it. I am glad I gave it a go.

Chapter one caught my interest right away. This may have been one of the best first chapters for fantasy that I have read to peak my interest. I wanted to know what happened next. Since I am not normally one to love fantasy, I appreciated the simplicity of the world. I never felt lost or confused around the characters or the plot. It was all pretty straight forward.

This did slow down a little when Ruby was training, but it moved along pretty fast after that. I have liked to see a little more with the romance between Ruby and Arcus, but that maybe the romance lover in me. I did not always buy into the romance, but loved the connection that was building between the two.

Overall, I enjoyed this more than I thought, and I plan to continue with the series.
