Review – The Many Loves of Sarah Brennan by Vikki Alexander

I read this when it was first presented as an ARC read, and I loved it. Sarah had been a somewhat polarising figure in Vikki Alexander’s first book, Coloring Life, and the chance to find out her story was intriguing. I didn’t much like Sarah, from what I knew of her in Coloring Life, butContinue reading “Review – The Many Loves of Sarah Brennan by Vikki Alexander”

Review – All The Cuts and Scars We Hide by Garry Michael

This author might just be near the top for my favourite MM romances. This story of two traumitized souls, each bearing the burden of bad memories and flashbacks, is a wonderful tale of healing, self-forgiveness and finding love. It is also a cute love story with lots of wonderful supporting characters, centred around a whale-watchingContinue reading “Review – All The Cuts and Scars We Hide by Garry Michael”

Review – Every Shade of Me by Alec John Belle

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to read an ARC of this book, and from the first line, I was hooked.  The writing is wonderful, an easy read but one that deals with tough subjects. I had no idea what an empath was until I read this, but Grayson (the main character) hasContinue reading “Review – Every Shade of Me by Alec John Belle”

Review – The Coloring Life by Vikki Alexander

This is a searing account of one woman’s descent into full breakdown, via a self-destructive path which threatens the carefully constructed life she has built for herself. As we learn more about Julie, it is clear where the damage has been done. In childhood, she experienced something no one should have to suffer and hasContinue reading “Review – The Coloring Life by Vikki Alexander”

Review – Lipgloss by Liam Gammalliere

This was an interesting read, but I have to address a niggle first. I was slightly daunted by the dissertation at the beginning of the book. Along with a stern quasi-instruction to read first, this was a wopping twenty-two Kindle pages long. I confess I didn’t read all of it, but what I did readContinue reading “Review – Lipgloss by Liam Gammalliere”

Review – Precious by Lily Lamb

I’ll say first of all I love this author. They never fail to surprise and have a fearless attitude to some touchy subjects. This time they tackle mental health and the stalker/victim dynamic. It’s bold and shocking with a real impact. The first half of the book, I was conflicted about Scott. His actions wereContinue reading “Review – Precious by Lily Lamb”

Review – Reaching Out by Ellen Whyte and Alvin Ng Lai Oon

I was asked to review this book as I’ve had some experience with the issues talked about within, and I was interested to know whether a book written the other side of the world would have any relevance to how mental health is dealt with in the UK. The short answer is yes. It isContinue reading “Review – Reaching Out by Ellen Whyte and Alvin Ng Lai Oon”
