Goodreads: Andrea has always allowed her circumstances to guide her life. She longs to fulfill her dreams but is reluctant to let go of her obligations. Poe feels trapped in his misguided musical career. Together they may change their futures, if only they can break free from their pasts.

This novel is a perfect escape from reality. I can’t speak for the male population, but I think most of us women have had some point in our lives where we’ve dreamed of falling in love with a rockstar. Or, I guess I should say, we dreamed of having THEM fall in love with US. This novel provides that for Andrea and takes the reader along for the ride. Andrea’s life is far from easy and Poe helps her find goodness and happiness in her life. While Poe is obviously not perfect he’s a man that I could find myself falling for. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m sure that the reader will have no trouble falling for him either.

I’d recommend this story to anyone looking for an easy and entertaining read. Especially if they’re a fan of sweet romances. Poe is nothing if not a gentlemen who treats Andrea the way I’m sure most of us would like to be treated. This is a perfect novel to read on a rainy or cold day while curled up in a blanket. 🙂

Fairytale

by Therese Kinkaide

Pages: Paperback, 391

Published: February 1st, 2011 by Wings ePress

ISBN: 1597055816

From Goodreads: Caroline Wolfe is in a race against time to remember who she is, the accident that left her in a coma and the people who claim they want to help her.

With the help of a woman who claims she was her college roommate, Caroline must find the past she is certain was taken from her before her future is taken too.

 

I’m going to try and give this review without giving too much of the plot away. I really really liked this novel and would definitely recommend it to someone. When I first started it however, I wasn’t too sure if I was going to enjoy it. Caroline Wolfe can’t remember who she is and I was feeling a little frustrated not knowing anything when I started reading because, as the reader, I was in her head. But as the story continued and Caroline started piecing together her life, I got more and more immersed in the story. I wanted to find how who Caroline was and I found myself thinking about it after I put the book down. I wanted to know everything about her life and solve all of the mysteries involving her accident and life before. I wanted to see if I could figure it out before Caroline did. This story is terrifying and also thoroughly absorbing and addictive. You’ll definitely want to keep reading once the pieces start coming together and you start to realize what this woman’s life is all about. This was beautifully written. The only complaint I would have is that the ending was too abrupt for me, and of course, the fact that I was so confused in the beginning… but now I understand that was necessary to get the full effect of the rest of the novel. This is a story that’s definitely worth reading.
