Lost In The Starlight

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 6 Jan. 2017

Wonderful new story by Kiki Archer, which takes us into the world of the rich and famous.
As always, the book was well written, and the characters are well developed.
I loved every minute of it!

This review is from: First Position (Kindle Edition)
OK, I am a bit of a Melissa Brayden fan. So I am a wee bit biased.
Anyhow, I loved First Position. As all the other books, it very well written and simply makes you smile.
It's an engaging love story, placed in NYC again, and as you probably gather from the title, it's all about ballet dancers.
The characters are great, and I thought they really came to life.
And yes, some of the Soho Loft characters appear very briefly at the very end.
I can't wait for the next Melissa Brayden!

I am usually not one for supernatural stuff. But this is a L T Smith, and it's a good one!
Loved it from beginning to start!

This review is from: Poppy Jenkins (Kindle Edition)
Everybody in the village adores Poppy Jenkins. And what's not to like? She is through and through lovely and on top of that easy on the eye. One would think that being gay in a small Welsh village can't be easy, but as nobody seems to be able to dislike Poppy they simply get on with it and her family always have stuck together like glue.
Things haven't always been that easy for Rosalyn growing up there. She never fit in. Coming from an English well to do family, and being a bit of a rebel at best of times, Rosalyn rubbed up the locals the wrong way from an early age. But her and Poppy became best friends fast and the bond lasted until they where 16. Poppy never really understood what happened, but Rosalyn seemed to have simply lost interest. Once Rosalyn left for university - she never came back. Until one sunny summers day. And Rosalyn is a stunner.
The rest of it you can imagine. There are moments or tender romance and misunderstandings, fear of being hurt and difference in personality surface.
It's a wonderful read, with well crafted characters, really well written and a great flow to the story. I found it hard to put the book away - it's a real page turner. I enjoyed every moment of the read.

2.0 out of 5 stars full of stereotypes and predictable, 8 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Fighting Chance (Kindle Edition)
I found this one disappointing and here is why:
1) The storyline is one we read a million times. Butch with dark short hair and emotionally immature meets blond longhaired straight girl and the minute they lay eyes on each other they are hugely attracted. There are a couple of misunderstandings (minor but blown out of proportion) and than a violent attack happens. The victim is of course the girly girl and the tough girl is the hero.
2) if you are not into mixed martial arts (or MMA) you'll find pages of it boring. The author goes to great lengths to describe leg holds and training passaged. There is a informative section of self defence in the book, but I didn't need the author to go through the course twice.
3) there where quite a few things in there, that I found actually kinda wrong. For example, the fact that DJ (the tough girl that runs the MMA gym and therefore should really have her temper under control) is about to kill a guy, and on various occasions in the book her thought processes are based on wanting to use her skills to really harm someone. All of this is usually made out to be OK, as she means well and her cause is just, or its OK because she loves her girlfriend so much she is in such emotional pain (for example wanting to kill the attacker of her girlfriend). As much as I sympathise - I really didn't approve of the message.
4) There is a description of a vet clinic in the book where every doctor, technician and other member of staff is a women. And apparently that is by choice as (and I quote) "the inherent gentleness of women is a very comforting thing for animals." Now firstly - if that would be said about men, we all would be outraged. Secondly, I thought hiring someone based on gender is illegal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great young adult read, 9 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing read.
Abbey has to come to terms with the fact that she might be gay. Well, she is pretty sure she is gay, but struggles a little with everything that's going on in her life. New school, first girlfriend (even though by the looks of it she is not all hers) and coming out.
The book is a joy to read, and you just can't help but wishing you knew someone like Abbey when you were a teenager.
Can't wait to read the follow up novel "Driving Lessons".

I really, really liked this one.
It's a great story about coming to terms with being gay in a less than open minded environment.
The book is well written and Cameron as a character is fantastically crafted.

Absolutely loved it.
I assume this is the end of the Soho Loft series, and I hate to say good by to the girls.
Can't wait what Melissa Brayden has up her sleeve next.

This review is from: The Good Girls (Kindle Edition)
Loved it from start to finish. It’s a really engaging story about first love (or so). The story about Ellie and Cara is not without drama but not farfetched. Teresa Mummert crafted believable and likable characters which aren’t without fault but I could always relate to them.
