My One and Only by Kristan Higgins -review







Title: My One and Only
Author: 
Genre: Romance, Chick lit
Pages: 382(paperback)
Published:March 29th 2011 by HQN Books







My review:


What would one woman want more then quite life for herself? I mean really quite life, one boyfriend and great work and friends.

    Harper James is divorce attorney and she is really hard with her cases in courtroom. She had one divorce behind herself and she knows how it is to be young and full with love and then everything to stop and break in pieces. But those times are over she is strong now and she has the most popular and handsome fireman in her island besides her as her boyfriend of course. But one day her sister will call her and tells her that she will marry again. Harper’s future brother in law is her Nick’s brother. Nick is her ex. Oh, I know this is madness! But wait to read this: she will be forced to trip with her ex. That is madness!!!

     I was trapped till the end of this book and when the end goes I wanted more. This is captivating and warm story will laugh you and left you with heart filled with warmness and long lasting sense of satisfaction. There are plenty scenes where, you know, time is stopped and everything goes slowly and the moments of happiness filled between main characters.

    Harper is woman with strong spirit. She knows what she wants and she is realist in that point that her realism hurts. She is convinced that love is not enough one relationship to last, but there are more important things. She likes her boyfriend, but that isn’t love. To be honest I don’t like him at all. Which man calls his girlfriend “dude”!? Very romantic! But how the story goes I was sorry for him.
    Nick, on the other hand, is very intelligent and careful and wonderful. He is that kind of man that patiently waits and grub that woman that he is thinks that is his. I hate his don’t understanding Harper why she left their home in the past, but he was intelligent enough to understand that till the end.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves romance with funny parts.

This book was borrowed from one of my students. Thank you Mila!

My rating: 5/5(amazing book)

Country Affairs by Zara Stoneley- cover reveal


COVER REVEAL
COUNTRY AFFAIRS
BY ZARA STONELEY
COUNTRY AFFAIRS
'A great treat for readers who love their books jam-packed with sexy men and horses.' Bestselling author Fiona Walker
It’s time to get back in the saddle with the follow up to the deliciously naughty Stable Mates! 


Swapping her spurs for stilettoes and becoming Lady of the Manor is not on loveable, but scatty, Lottie’s life plan. Nor does she have the faintest idea how to rescue it from rack and ruin.
But with footballer’s wife Sam on the case, determined to bring glamour to the manor, and fun-loving eventer Rory egging them on, nothing can possibly go wrong, can it?

Todd never forgave himself for abandoning Lottie on a Barcelona beach, but now he’s tracked her down and he’s ready to kiss and make up. With a roving eye and his roguish grin he soon has more than one girl in Tippermere going weak at the knees, but why is he really there?

With wedding plans going awry, unexpected pregnancies and relationships starting to look rocky, will Lottie ever be ready to accept her inheritance and help Tipping House Estate move into the 21st Century?

Praise for Stable Mates –

'A delightful romp peppered with humour, sadness, scandal and steamy sex.'

'...reminded me of Jilly Cooper whose books I grew up with. Stable Mates is up there with Riders and Rivals. If you loved these books then you will love this one'

'...the perfect mix of horsey shenanigans, Cheshire glamour and flirty fun.'

'...reminded me of the Tilly Bagshawe novels I love, with all the scandal and drama. I don’t think I’ve read another author who writes in that kind of style without finding negative comparisons but Zara Stoneley comes into her own' 

'a really impressive read.' 

'Fun, Frothy & a Good Weekend Read'

'An unexpected FUN read that should not be missed by anyone. I would say I laughed at almost every page! '

This book bestows all the wisdom you want to pour into your daughter's heart and mind in a fun, non-threatening way. Dread turns into confidence as you realize you have the tools to face those teenage years TOGETHER and have a ball doing it.” --Rachel Skinner, Mother of nine, Social Worker “This book provided a wonderful bonding experience for me and my daughter. As parents we always think we know how our child is doing. Then we get into a deep conversation and realize that compared to what we thought, they are doing either so much better or are suffering so much more. But they hold those feelings back to protect us. Sometimes they fear that talking about it means more pain, but this books shows that talking is healing, especially when we know how.” —Karrie Glazner, Mother of Three Wonderful Kids

A Chaos Within Cover

Synopsis:

Home. What does that word mean to you? To me it means a feeling of comfort, security, feeling like I belong. Home is where I’m by Lydic’s side.
It’s been a whole year. I miss him. I miss the danger that follows him. I miss feeling untouchable because of his magic. My own realm is no longer my home. But how can I live with the guilt of vanishing again? It will kill my parents, especially my mom. She just won’t understand. No one will. I can’t tell them about Nimbus. They already think I’m crazy. I have my own psychologist picking and prodding my brain.
It doesn’t matter how much they question me. I’ll never tell them about the magic. I find myself wondering about Lydic, how he’s been and what it would be like to see him again—and then I do.

Normalcy. I need to get back to a state of normalcy. What’s happened to me? Why am I here in this orphanage, and why am I forbidden to leave? Everyone is so very cruel here. I can’t eat.
