Book SynopsisA romance. A rogue nobleman, a rescued lady, and revenge undone by romance all play a part in New York Times bestselling author Joan Johnston’s irresistible novel of best-laid plots, delicious deception, and unexpected passion.
Two years have passed since Josie Wentworth was bought from the Sioux for a gold watch and whisked back to England by Marcus Wharton, the Duke of Blackthorne. When Marcus breaks his promise to return Josie to America, she ends up as a maid in the home of his charming but neglected nephews. Once Josie’s long-lost family finds her, however, the suddenly wealthy heiress sets out to save the two boys from their indifferent uncle—and teach the duke a lesson in honor.
Learning that Marcus is seeking a rich American bride to save his estate, Josie plots to catch his eye. She is certain he’ll never recognize the beauty she’s become as the ragged captive he rescued. But Josie doesn’t wager on her marital charade taking a tender turn, as the nobleman she’s despised for years proves to be a very different man than she’s imagined. And there’s no denying his passionate caresses, as she falls deeper under the spell of a husband determined to claim her heart. Blackthorne’s Bride – Goodreads
My Opinion on the Romance
Good. This is how I describe this book. It is one of those historical romances about destiny and misunderstandings. I consider it a so called “guilty pleasure books.” Sincerely speaking, I do not actually feel guilty about. The plot line was similar to other books I’ve read in this genre. I liked it but I was expecting for that extra something to make it memorable. But, it never came.
Blackthorne’s Bride is part of a long series. Although, it can be read as a standalone. Overall, the story was cute. The author did an amazing job in creating another subplot romance. I was so invested in the secondary romance, unfortunately, it was cut short.
As you can expect, the sexual content is heavy but not overwhelming. Hint, it is categorized as an adult book. Wink-Wink. Also, there is a torture scene in the beginning and that might be a trigger warning scene for some people.
Small spoilers ahead:
As a side note, I have mixed feelings about Marcus’ first wife. I understand(-ish) why she did what she did but she kind of ruined Josie’s life. And I cannot believe that Marcus’ best friend was forgiven so easily for being an accomplice to that. Also, I was not a fan of the lack of communication and the whole children abduction plan as plot devices.
End of spoilers.
This was my cup of tea.
This is my sole opinion. ^_^I would like to say thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Death Below Stairs has at its center a cook from Victorian Era named Kat Holloway. Recently hired as part of Lord Rankin’s household in London, she finds herself immersed in a murder mystery. Set to solve the killing of her kitchen maid, Kat turns to the resourceful Daniel McAdam, who is more than meets the eyes. With the help of a mathematical genius and Lord Rankin’s eccentric sister-in-law, Kat and Daniel will soon found out that the household murder was the tip of the iceberg of a much bigger plot against Queen Victoria.
Death Below Stairs – My Opinion
When I requested this book, I only skimmed the book’s summery. I read “murder,” “Victorian Era,” and “young cook Kat [woman]” and that was enough for me to get hooked. You can imagine the surprise I had when I realized that there is more to the murder.
First, I fell in love with Kat’s voice as a character. Her background story was unexpected. She is an ordinary woman with an unfortunate past. The overall cast of characters was intriguing. We have the eccentric woman who was born in the wrong era, the nice and work-absorbed mathematician, the rebel teenager, and the man with all the answers, Daniel. Danial was a total mystery however, I have a slight idea about what he might be. No spoilers.
Kat is smart, independent, and hard working. She has her mind set with a realistic view of the world even though her heart fancies a guy. The only person she relies on is herself. As a a woman in that time period, Kat works assiduously to be acknowledged by the pompous society. Although, she is not afraid to challenge the authority when something is wrong. As a mother figure character, Kat feels responsible for the kitchen girl’s death, thus, her courage and determination put the cook in dangerous situations.
Despite the lovely characters, the pacing of the story had a bit of an issue. The narrative was executed strangely. We are halfway through the book and merely anything happens. There is too much description of food making which feels like page fillers than part of the actual story. I know what you are going to say next, “But, wait! Isn’t she a cook?” And my follow up answer will be something like, “Yes. Yes, she is. Although, we have a murder which is tied to a plot that might threaten the queen’s life and only 50 percent of the book is dedicated to that.”
The major scenes are rushed and unpolished. It first starts as a a slow burner book then the narrative accelerates and you try to keep up. Some unfolding of events seemed improbable due to lack of development space. The murder is brushed to the side as a subplot, despite the book being called Death Below Stairs , putting the book in a precarious position. I wished the murder had a bigger role in the plot.
The ending, though… Let’s just say that it was explosive and it saved the book for me. Wink.
Overall, I gave this book a 3/5 stars on Goodreads. Death Below Stairs was somewhat my cup of tea and I am tempted to read the next book in the series. Also, I would like to thank you Penguin Random House for the ebook arc in exchange for an honest review.
This is my sole opinion. ^_^

Of all the world’s great metropolises, Paris and Los Angeles are among those that house the most significant and immediately recognizable cultural milieus. From the Champs-Élysées to the Sunset Strip, Marilyn Monroe to Brigitte Bardot, LACMA to Louvre, there is plenty for visitors and residents alike to fall in love with these storied cities – and in Why LA? Pourquoi Paris?, for the first time ever, they are revealed in parallel.
Written by Diane Ratican with illustrations by acclaimed artists Eric Giriat (Paris) and Nick Lu (Los Angeles), Why LA? Pourquoi Paris? is a gorgeous, full-color, 272-page collectible art book, travel guide, and personal journey. Playfully ‘connecting the dots’ between respective historical landmarks, architectural icons, style codes, and cultural peculiarities, Ratican weaves a compelling narrative in both English and French throughout Why LA? Pourquoi Paris?, which is interspersed with quotes from famed L.A. and Paris residents such as Walt Disney, Jim Morrison, Coco Chanel, and Ernest Hemingway.
Colorful, charming illustrations by Girat and Lu compare and contrast the foods, fashions, cultures, and cityscapes of the City of Stars and City of Lights. And, as an added bonus, precise GPS coordinates are included next to each illustrated page bringing the experience of these two incredible cities ‘off the page’ and into the real world!
Cleverly divided into seven distinct sections, Why LA? Pourquoi Paris? looks at:
· Cityscapes & Landmarks Magnifiques
· Culture Célébre: Cinema, Entertainment & Glamour
· Fashion, Style & Shopping à la Mode
· Sports & Leisure
· Communicating Ideas: Art & Culture
· Cuisine & Dining
· Cities in Motion
My Opinion –Why LA? Pourquoi Paris?
Have you ever been to Paris or LA? I can proudly say that I have. Only to Paris… And by being in Paris, I mean that I spent a maximum of an hour or two there. The majority of that time, I was in a bus station taking a break – bathroom and gas tank refill. It was a beautiful dark station with amazing bathrooms. Yes, I had to pay 50¢ (euros) for the toilet. Besides the station, I had the chances to see La Seine, the river that crosses Paris, and a few random buildings from the bus window. Now, you understand why I need to go back there?
Speaking of which, this book was a great catalyst to remember my love for France and French culture. With the American culture, I am well acquainted already. Wink-Wink. And regardless of my previous knowledge about these amazing cities, Diane Ratican’s travel guide poked my interest in them again. Also, let’s not forget that it is written in both English and French. How brilliant is that? And the artwork within the pages of this work? Marvelous!
As you can see throughout this post, I put some beautiful images from the book. It is a delight for the eyes alone. You get the chance to experience first-hand what it means to be lost in translation, literally. It was an intellectually fun experience as if this book had to writers, the author and “the translator.” Sometimes, I found myself having two different feelings about the same paragraph because the tone was different. It was just like reading two books in one.
The narration flowed easily with genuine information. It was noticeable that a person who lived in both cities wrote this travel guide. I did not feel overwhelmed by facts. And the artwork was and excellent divider between the chapters. All the written information was transformed into a visual delight of compare and contrast between Paris and LA. The they offered an idea of how those visiting places would look like in reality. Besides, the inspiring quotes, which accompanied the art work, were the cherries on top of a delicious cake.
Are you interested in Parisian and LA cultures? Then, this is the perfect book for you. Also, have you seen those graphics? Having this on your shelf would look amazing. Joke aside, Why LA? Pourquoi Paris? was my cuppa tea. I had fun reading it and I even got the chance to rediscover myself. Sincerely, I am already planing my trips to Paris and LA after this read.
This is my sole opinion. ^_^

Book SynopsisNemesis is a Diabolic. Created to protect a galactic Senator’s daughter, Sidonia. There’s no one Nemesis wouldn’t kill to keep her safe. But when the power-mad Emperor summons Sidonia to the galactic court as a hostage, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia.
She must become her.
Now one of the galaxy’s most dangerous weapons is masquerading in a world of corruption and Nemesis has to hide her true abilities or risk everything. As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns that there is something stronger than her deadly force: the one thing she’s been told she doesn’t have – humanity. And, amidst all the danger, action and intrigue, her humanity might be the only thing that can save her, Sidonia and the entire Empire… The Diabolic – Goodreads
My Opinion4/5 stars.Cause of Science, I took one star. I will explain later in my review. Let’s start with the positive, shall we? ^_^
This book was something. It got me intrigued from the very first chapter. It combined the very things I love most to read about space and Roman Empire. Two ingredients that should not work together like salt caramel ice cream or chocolate and salted pretzels but they do and they were so delicious to devour.
The story is unpredictable. You think the plot is moving in one direction then the next thing you know… Surprise! You just got spun 180 degrees with the narrative moving in the opposite direction than you initially thought.
There is an amazing cast of characters which keeps the action moving forward besides the politics rich driven plot. It was interesting to read how the Emperor tried to keep his place on the throne like a dictator by killing and suppressing progress. He was like a futuristic version of Nero. But let’s not forget about the Queen mother. She was… worse than the Emperor himself. If you ever watched Game of Thrones, then you should be very familiar with Cersei’s character and how vile she can be. Well, the Queen mother is Cersei’s mirror image.
Aside from the whole political drama, there is also the Diabolic mythology. Designed bodyguards ripped off of all their humanity and trained killing machines destined to protect only one person at all costs. They are feared by everyone and paradoxically enslaved by the very same people.
Watching Nemesis rediscovering herself was beautiful and frustrating. Beautiful because she tried to understand her feelings and humanity, a side of her she never got a chance to explore. And frustrating because there is me, the reader, attempting to understand Nemesis’ inhuman ways and pointing the obvious while she needed time to see past those ways.
Like I said in the beginning, I took off a star mostly due to the science and, next, due to the very rushed ending. First, the science. The story tells us that Diabolics do not have lacrimal glands because they were designed not to cry. My question is: Then, how do Diabolics keep their eyes moist, clean, and infection free? So far, science says that the primary role of tears is not crying. They are just a tool used by the brain when showing distress to gain more sympathy from others. (Do not quote me on this but it’s something like that :D). The author could have stick to the brain manipulation thing. It would had been more plausible in my opinion. I know. I know. By the end of the day, this is still a work of fiction but I still want my simple science to be accurate. ^^’ The perks of being a science lover.
Second, the ending was a bit rushed and somewhat anticlimactic. I believe this was due to the uncertainty if it is going to be a standalone or a series. Which it is understandable because the author wanted to give us a resolution just in case we are not going to get another book. And for that, I am also grateful.
All in all, I recommend this book if you are fond of space, ancient times, and politics. This was my cup of tea. Oh! The romance is good too. It fits perfectly into the narrative.This is my sole opinion. ^_^

Royals 3.5Picture Source: Goodreads
Book SynopsisStandard Disclaimer: For those who you have not read the Royals books 1 to 3 be aware of spoilers ahead.This story happens after Twisted Palace following Savannah and Gideon’s relationship. It tries to shine some light over what happened between the two of them in the past and how they are going to proceed foreword. Love. Tension. Drama. And all that shenanigan. Of course, things are not so simple and the past keeps saying “Hello” to the lover birds.
My Opinion2.00/5.00I stay by GoodReads ratings. It was ok. I might be in the minority when I am saying this… I was disappointed. Within the first three books, we get this strong and independent image of Savannah to now be ruined by this installment. I get the feeling that this was done to serve the fandom, which is not automatically a bad thing, but it was not served right. It takes time and patience to rebuild a relationship which had been broken to such a degree. Gideon did not even learn from his past mistakes and he still has the tendency to repeat those mistakes. Savannah should learn to love herself more and keep her standards no matter what. To be sincere, I do not know what made these two fall in love in the first place.
And last, this book? novella? – it has 21 chapters which makes this work to pass as a book – needs more substance. It was a good cup of tea turned bad.
This is my sole opinion. >_^Original review on Goodreads.

My Opinion4/5 starsThis was fun a read. It felt like watching the episodes all over again. You get the same amount of fun, adventure, and cuteness only it’s in stop-motion this time. You read me right. Copy and paste. The same graphics with the same story lines. (Apparently, it is a popular thing nowadays.) For a fan of the show, like myself, this should not be a turn off. You saw the TV Show thus you know the content already. Sooo… I am a little biased in this review as you can see.Oops! ^_^’They did a great job with the transition process from motion-picture to paper. The dialogue is on point and the graphics are well arranged. As a reader, it was easy to follow the story through the lines of the characters.
“Aaand why did I take a star off,” you ask. Well, I was expecting something different like some other stories added to the universe or the graphics to be more cartoon-ish – comic book style.
All in all, this was my cuppa tea. If you are looking for a fun and easy read, it might be yours too.
This is my sole opinion. ^_^

Book SynopsisA DEAL WITH THE DEVIL…
Trapped in the countryside, facing an unwanted marriage and the theft of her fortune, Jane Mason is done behaving nicely. To win her freedom, she’ll strike a deal with the most dangerous man she knows—a rising star in politics, whose dark good looks mask an even darker heart.
…NEVER GOES TO PLAN.
The bitter past has taught Crispin Burke to trust no one. He’ll gladly help a lovely young heiress, provided she pays a price. Yet when a single mistake shatters his life, it is Jane who holds the key to his salvation. And in a world that no longer makes sense, Crispin slowly realizes that she may be the only thing worth fighting for… A Lady’s Code of Misconduct – Goodreads
4.5/5 stars.Love. Politics. History. Conspiracies. Conflicting morals. Deceit. Redemption. And hot-bad-boy guy with a secretly good heart… and a hot-good-of-heart girl with lots of brains and a rebellious spirit. There are lots of “and’s” in my last sentence… I know.Something I was not expecting in this story was the politics driven plot intertwined with a love story. Although, the surprising part is. That. I. Freaking. Loved. It. I was expecting to get bored and forced myself to finish the book. That was so not the case. It was exactly what I needed: A good romance story which is not too focused on the romance part. Oxymoron right there.The beginning is what hooked me up in the first place. Not too fast and not too slow. Our beloved characters were in positions where they will do anything to get what they desire. This leads to an unlikely alliance to form between the desire of freedom and power which sparks the chances of a new beginning for our protagonists.Jane and Crispin go through a fantastic character development. They realize that people are not completely good or evil. You just have to choose which side to use more but most importantly how to find a balance between the two. Speaking of character growth. I was not a big fan of acknowledging someone as being two persons in the same time. It was like the author was trying to say Crispin had a split personality… I understood where she was going with it… But it still felt a bit cringe worthy at times.What I admired the most in this story was the sense of a real partnership between the main characters. And believe it or not is quite rare these days. It was not about sexual lust and how it can lead to a good relationship in the end… It was so much more than that. It was… How do you say it? Complicated. Yes. Complicated.Of course, most people might get turned off by the plot focused on politics which is understandable if you are not a big politics fan – like myself, I could say. However, you might also surprisingly find yourself enjoying the book just… like myself. 😀All in all, I could proudly say that this was my cuppa tea. One of my all time favorites – romance section – I dare to say.This is my sole opinion. ^_^I would like to say thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion.Genre/Category: Adult, Historical Romance, Fiction, Politics, MysteryLanguage: none to mild, maybe noneSexual Content: well… heavy but within reasonViolence: moderateDrugs and Alcohol: mild to moderate

My Opinion2.75/5.00 StarsI should just post my rough draft as it is because I am out of words. Ha-Ha-Ha!Moving on to the actual review…I requested this book from NetGalley a long time ago. The premise sounded promising but I got lost along the way. I had to face the same problem I usually find in books like this one. The romance took over the entire plot. :/While reading Vernal, I learn that it is a spin off series starter. Nothing wrong with that; although, for a new comer like myself, things were not 100% clear. Little details were offered regarding the world and plot. From what is presented, the setting, the magic system and its background seemed interesting. And this is unfortunate because, just like the characters, the story had a lot of potential.Speaking of characters… I thought there is going to be more about exploration and build up when the romance element entered the scene. As in, how the protagonists connect and try to figure out this inexplicable connection/attraction they feel about each other. Instead… Bam! Everything ruined by the sex. They spend more time talking about and being intimate than knowing each other. Then, that whole “I am super possessive and inexplicable jealous alpha male. Everything you do is wrong and I own you” and “I am a strong woman capable of anything but I cannot live without you and I am owned by you and you are the only male who can tame me” was not my style. They looked like decent characters and had good qualities here and there but…. In the end, they got overshadowed by the romance and nonexistent plot. Also, there was not a concrete reason why Serena is special and has to become the next ruler.All in all this book was not for me. Like I use to say, this was not my cuppa tea because of too much sugar was added. It was not what I expected at all.[I gave it such a high rating because it had enough to keep me entertained and not DNF (do not finish) it.]This is my sole opinion. ^_^I would like to say thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Genre: New Adult, Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, UrbanLanguage: HeavySexual Content: HeavyViolence: HeavyDrugs/Alcohol: Heavy
Book SynopsisJust shy of fifteen years old, and during a fake and impromptu wedding ceremony, Lily Scott married her best friend’s brother, Henry Dalton.It seemed harmless enough until he leaned in and whispered to her his true feelings, amorous words she has been unable to forget: Now you’re mine, forever and always.Unfortunately, growing up pulls them apart and transforms Henry into a pompous scoundrel. When they meet again at a house party hosted by Henry’s sister, will Henry remember his once faithful promise to Lily? Mine, Forever and Always – Goodreads
My Opinion5.00/5.00 starsJust read it if you are into romance. This is a lovely story about the love of two people which has to pass the test of time and society. Life forced them to go on their separate ways regardless of what their hearts wanted. And, now, they meet each other again. There is angst and there is tension. Question is: Does the love between them still exists? Or is it just a beautiful memory of the past?
What can I say? The feelings… are so overwhelming. I do not have enough words to praise this novella. Despite it’s length, we get a lot of content about the main characters and the other players in the story. It is a torturous, genuine love. Your heart will melt, ache, get butterflies, mushy, and – finally – teary. I do not want to say too much about the plot cause… spoilers. Obviously! The author has a beautiful writing because everything floated nicely. No boring part. No excessive descriptions. Right words were used to ensure the reader that there are a solid background to the narrative and well-rounded characters which are not just flat instruments of yielding a romance. I wished this was a full novel because there is so much room for expanding and exploring; although, I am afraid it might cut the beauty of the novella in some parts.
Sometimes the short length might give a writing work a feel of unresolved or anticlimactic endings. Like, there has to be more to it than what’s already published. Thus, I understand why some readers may give this one a lower rating. But for me, a strong impression on my mood while reading it’s enough sometimes. Not every good piece has to be lengthy. The information is there only not in so many words as you may like it to be.
Now, I am waiting patiently for the next story in the series. The author promised a new story in the future regarding other characters who were introduced in the book. She said that time is of the essence for her inspiration to come and the final product be good.
This was definitely my cup of tea. And, it might be yours too. Do not get mislead by the cover.

4.5/5 stars.I picked up this book last year. I read a good portion of it then I put it down. Why, you ask? Because:
- I’ve lost interest.
During the school time, a slow burning romance is not a good way to entertain yourself. You need adrenaline. Action. Something that keeps you going. (So that is my excuse.) In other words, I was not in the mood anymore.Putting my reasons aside, I was 100% sure I will return to this book. And not surprisingly, I did. Oh, boy! I so enjoyed the story. It was a historical, regency romance just up my alley. The romance does not monopolize the narrative and we have conflict. Yes! Three noble orphaned girls in need of money in times when a good marriage is the only solution for young women. Deceased parent with gambling addiction who caused those three girls to be in danger from a bookie. A noble bastard who owns a “gambling hell” becomes a means to an end for the girls to get out of dept. The oldest of the sisters risks her family name and reputation in an era where status is everything to save her sisters. Falling in love is out of question but it may happen in the darkest of times.A perfect recipe for an intriguing story despite the cheesy cover. (Please, ignore it!)The romance is slow burning. Tension is built up for our characters. We have chemistry at first. Then, we have period of flirting, personal exploring, and creating trust. No dominant and overly exaggerated alpha male. No weak female who appears to be strong only because the author tells us so. The main characters feel like real people, relatable people. Both are strong and weak in their own ways. They complete each other like puzzle pieces.I realized lately that I need meaning and story in my romances not jut plain romance and steam. This was definitely my cup of team. I am going to follow the author and continue the series.Yes, this is still a read for a more mature audience.Genre: Adult, Romance, Historical Romance, Regency
