Review: Lorelei's Lyric by D.B Sieders

Lorelei's Lyric (Southern Elemental Guardians Book 1)
If Lorelei sings, someone will die.

Her beautiful voice once cost a life. Still, music is her passion. What’s a mermaid to do? Run off and live vicariously through mortal musicians!

Unfortunately, gorgeous rocker Vance Idol almost succumbs to her siren call after his show in Nashville. Not that Vance cares—not since his girlfriend’s fatal overdose left him with a supersized death wish. Lorelei makes it her mission to undo the damage and help this talented and charismatic man on the eve of his band’s big break.

But saving a mortal man is a dangerous proposition. Lorelei could far too easily lose her heart, and quite possibly her immortality, during her American holiday. Bad boy Vance might be worth the risk.

Can their love survive his attitude, her fins, and an evil Pixie with a grudge against them both?

So Wrong - So Right Review

So Wrong - So RightSo Wrong - So Right by Glenis Wilson

Emma Wetherford has always put her children first, remaining in a loveless marriage for their sake. When she meets Milo Kent, they both recognise their true soulmate in each other. But Milo loves his wife Wendy, and will never leave her: after sustaining life-changing injuries in an accident years ago, she is completely dependent upon her husband's care. Emma and Milo pack a lifetime of love into one week, before they must return to their responsibilities. But the power of destiny will not be denied...

Claire's Review 3 of 5 Stars

This book is about the life of Emma, a wife and a mother who is in a coma, and her children are trying to pull her out of it using emotional triggers. unknown to her sons, Emma had told a story of her life to her daughter, who reveals the story to her brothers in an attempt to bring their mother back.

This is quite a hard review for me to write. On one hand I really enjoyed this book, it had a great storyline, full of love and sorrow, but on the other hand, I just felt that something was missing somewhere. I didnt find myself warming to the main character at all, even though I understood and sympathised with her, and what she was going through, and I thought the daughter and sons were rather too calm over the fact that their mother had been living a lie for so many years.

An enjoyable read, but I think it just needs a litle bit more.

It’s the most unconventional tactical idea, ever. It’s also the only way to save all whom he loves and holds dear.
More than just the legacy of his sons is at stake. In a world where Josiah Reign must keep his friends close, and perhaps, keep his enemies closer, can love really conquer all of the evil in the world—before it’s too late for every paranormal species on earth?

Review: Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)
Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.
The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.
