REVIEW by J’aime: Feels Like Home by Roberta Ann Roque

Cecilia has loved Will since high school. And that would be fine, except for the fact that he’s been dating her sister for about as long.

Cecilia is a Red Seal Chef and owner of a successful restaurant. In spite of all the material achievements that she could ask for, her life feels empty. She has wanted Will forever but he has always been out of reach. He’s her sister’s boyfriend for goodness sake! That’s all about to change when she goes home for Christmas this year. Cecilia is given a second chance and she finds the courage to risk her heart. But with her mother’s meddling and her sister’s return, Cecilia wonders if there will be a happy ending for her after all.

As an accomplished indie musician, Will has been garnering accolades left, right, and center. He has a beautiful girlfriend and a fantastic apartment in New York, but somehow he feels that he just wants something…more. Something real. As a child growing up in the foster system, the only thing Will has ever really wanted was a home, but is he willing to let go of the safe relationship he has for a chance at the real thing with Cecilia?

When they find themselves thrown together by chance, Cecilia and Will face a choice: stay in their secure, comfortable lives or risk it all for love.

Please note: This is a short, contemporary romance, stand-alone novella for adults 18 and over. In this novella, just like in life, sometimes things get a little hot and steamy, if you don’t like that, then you might want to try a different story. And don’t worry, we hate cliffhangers as much as you do – this novella is guaranteed to come to a satisfying HEA conclusion.

REVIEW by J’aime: Thornfruit by Felicia Davin – Includes an Excerpt!

There were two secrets in Varenx House, and Alizhan was one of them.

Alizhan can’t see faces, but she can read minds. Her mysterious ability leaves her unable to touch or be touched without excruciating pain. Rescued from abandonment and raised by the wealthy and beautiful Iriyat ha-Varensi, Alizhan has grown up in isolation, using her gift to steal secrets from Iriyat’s rivals, the ruling class of Laalvur. But Iriyat keeps secrets of her own.

When Alizhan discovers that she isn’t the only one of her kind, and that a deadly plot threatens everyone like her, there’s only one person she can trust.

Ev liked having a secret. None of the other girls in the village had a thief-friend.

Evreyet Umarsad—“Ev” to her parents and her one friend—longs to be the kind of hero she reads about in books. But the rest of the world feels impossibly far away from her life on a farm outside Laalvur. Ev will never lay eyes on the underground city of Adappyr, the stars of the Nightward Coast, or the venomous medusas that glow in the dark depths of the sea.

At least on her weekly trip to the market, Ev gets to see her thief—the strange young woman who slips by her cart and playfully steals a handful of thornfruit. When the thief needs help, Ev doesn’t hesitate. Together, they uncover a conspiracy that draws them all over Laalvur and beyond.

REVIEW by J’aime: A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge

Thousands of years in the future, humanity is no longer alone in a universe where a mind’s potential is determined by its location in space, from superintelligent entities in the Transcend, to the limited minds of the Unthinking Depths, where only simple creatures, and technology, can function. Nobody knows what strange force partitioned space into these “regions of thought,” but when the warring Straumli realm use an ancient Transcendent artifact as a weapon, they unwittingly unleash an awesome power that destroys thousands of worlds and enslaves all natural and artificial intelligence.

Fleeing this galactic threat, Ravna crash lands on a strange world with a ship-hold full of cryogenically frozen children, the only survivors from a destroyed space-lab. They are taken captive by the Tines, an alien race with a harsh medieval culture, and used as pawns in a ruthless power struggle.
