With This Kiss Carrie Hope Fletcher 4*#Review @CarrieHFletcher @HQStories #WithThisKiss #Romance #contemporaryfiction #supernatural #BlogTour #BookReview #fantasy

From the outside, Lorelai is an ordinary young woman with a normal life. She loves reading, she works at the local cinema and she adores living with her best friend. But she carries a painful burden, something she’s kept hidden for years; whenever she kisses someone on the lips, she sees how they are going to die. But she’s never known if she’s seeing what was always meant to be, or if her kiss is the thing that decides their destiny. And so, she hasn’t kissed anyone since she was sixteen.

Then she meets Grayson. Sweet, clever, funny Grayson. And for the first time in years, she yearns for a man’s kiss. But she can’t… or can she? And if she does, should she try to intervene and change what she sees?

Spellbinding, magical and utterly original, With This Kiss is one love story you will never forget.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher.

My Thoughts…

Lorelai is a theatrical character. Despite her ordinary job, she is creative and quirky, but her ability to see someone’s death when she kisses them dominates her life and makes her shy away from love. A new adult romance with a supernatural twist best describes this story. It’s an emotional journey of self-realisation for Lorelai as she comes to terms with her unusual ability. Told in the present day and from Lorelai’s past experiences, the reader gains an insight into the character and her motivations. I like the use of sensory imagery and the distinctive characterisation.

Emotional and original, this story is engaging and evocative to read.

Secrets Behind The Billionaire’s Return Rachael Stewart 5*#Review @rach_b52 @MillsandBoon @HarlequinBooks @rararesources #MillsandBoonTrueLove #secondchance #BookBlitz #BookReview #Romance #giveaway #SecretsBehindTheBillionairesReturn

Find out what happens when a billionaire returns to Felicity’s life in book one of Rachael Stewart’s new duet, Claiming the Ferrington Empire, from Harlequin Romance.

The man she never forgot…

The feelings she never lost…

Sixteen years ago, Felicity fell in love with the boy from Ferrington Manor. But their affair was short-lived when Sebastian vanished and she was left with the secret consequence of their love. Now he’s back and his return sends shock waves through Felicity! Will the revelations about Sebastian’s departure be enough for Felicity to succumb to the feelings that still draw her to him?

My Thoughts…

Sebastian can’t face returning to the house and estate where he grew up sixteen years after leaving. He is drawn to the local B&B and wonders if his first love is still there. Felicity’s feelings quickly surface when Sebastian walks into her life after sixteen years. Nothing has changed in her heart, but she has a big secret to share.

Full of angst, passion and romance, this is a lovely story. Felicity is an easy character to like. Sebastian is troubled, and their second chance takes them through many emotions. A heartwarming read with realistic circumstances and a lovely romantic conclusion.

Rachael Stewart

Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories, from heartwarmingly romantic to wildly erotic.

She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled-on pages in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her very own hero and three awesome kids, and if she’s not tapping out a story, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors.
