The Survival Pact by Christy Sloat


Jessica’s Rating: 5 out of 5 Margaritas


Jessica’s Review

Another page turner by the amazing Christy Sloat. I started and FINISHED this book all in one day and couldn’t tear myself away from it. It had a bunch of suspense and action and this book is NOTHING like Christy’s ever written before and if you like zombies you’ll LOVE this book. If I had to be in that kind of situation.. I don’t think that I would have survived. I wouldn’t know what to do, where to go and most of all I don’t think I could outrun stuff. I look forward to Christy’s next book.

Finding the Magician by Belle Brooks


Jessica’s Rating: 5 out of 5 Margaritas


“Sometimes in death, a life is ensured.”

Abigail has been given a do-over and she’s not about to waste such an opportunity. Does a single red velvet box hold the key to the future she now hopes for? With lost memories restored and a heart that cries Marcus’ name, Abigail has one more piece of her puzzle to claim…finding ‘The Magician.’

Marcus gave up hope of ever holding Abigail in his arms, of ever claiming the one he knows to be his. Disappearing in a puff of smoke and leaving a world of heartbreak behind, he promises himself he’ll never look back, that he will finally let Abigail go. But can Marcus keep this promise to himself or will his heart be more persistent than his mind?

Jessica’s Review

Wow, This book threw me for a loop at the end.. I wasn’t expecting what happened.. to happen. I really enjoyed this series and grew to love each and every one of the characters in this book like they were my own friends and family. I felt their joys when they had them and their sorrows also. I think that this trilogy was different then any of the other series I’ve read. Belle and her brilliant mind at work again.

Dream Walker by Shayne Leighton COVER REVEAL & Book Trailer




There are dreams and there are nightmares. Sometimes, it’s difficult to tell the difference between the two. The challenge for Zero is how to balance being a little of both. Zero and his best friend Toad are Dream Eaters -warriors of human dreams, squaring up against Nightmares in nightly battles to preserve the peace. The flip side? They’re also two of the most cunning drug dealers in the Night Realm. Annie is a budding photo journalist with a shadowed past. The medication she takes suppresses her night terrors for a while, until a mysterious stranger re-appears to her over and over, and ultimately, her lens captures something she can’t explain. When the Council of the Night Realm mistakenly arrests and detains Annie along with Zero and Toad, she loses herself in a dark labyrinth of heists, terror and the impossible, facing nightmares she thought she’d put to bed…a long time ago.

Thirty Days Part 2 By Belle Brooks


Jessica’s Rating: 5 out of 5 Margaritas


“Life is not always as it seems, Abigail, it can be masked by many disguises.”
Memories are defined as the faculty by which the mind stores and remembers information.
What would you do if you learned your memories were incorrect? That they’d been hidden to hide a bitter truth? Is this even possible?
Abigail McMillian now knows it is, after a life she chose to forget—a life she chose to change—comes flooding back. Suffering from retrograde amnesia triggered by a fall, Abigail must try to piece together her real memories from the ones she fictionally created.
Face to face with Marcus again, the love of her life and the man she’s forgotten for seven years, Abigail’s left with one decision to make: remember the pain she chose to erase, or remain forever blissful, fictitious in a world of her own creation.
That’s unless all is not what it seems.

Jessica’s Review

Belle threw me for another loop.. I thought that I knew what was coming at the end but WOW nope. Another tear jerking book from Belle Brooks ladies so be sure to get tissues at the end. I think that I love this part more then Part 1 and I think that I am going to say the same for Part 3 when I finish it. I can’t wait to read more of this author’s works when she writes them. 5 stars or in my case margaritas for this one.

Thirty Days Part 1 by Belle Brooks


Jessica’s Rating: 5 out of 5 Margaritas


“Sometimes we choose to forget the things in life that hurt us the most.”
What has Abigail forgotten? What has been erased?
Plenty, apparently…
Abigail, the self-proclaimed hexed, is falling apart at the seams. She’s mad at the world—at the series of doors that continue to slam in her face. Most of all, she’s mad at herself.
When her best friend Sammy interferes in her spiral of self-loathing with an intervention, she finds herself entering through the door of a successful law firm and right into Marcus’ lap. Literally.
He’s sophisticated, funny, alluring…but also underhanded. There’s something else about Marcus that Abigail never expected. Magic.

Jessica’s Review

I gave this book 5 stars because Belle is amazing.. the book was kinda predictable at one point but kept on the edge of my seat and guessing after that.. It does it end on a cliffhanger and makes me want to read the 2nd book to know what happens. All in all, It’s a really great book that I highly suggest that you get on Amazon and also while you’re at it get the rest of the series.

Always You By Belle Brooks



Jessica’s Rating: 5 out of 5 Margaritas


“I will breathe for you.”

Some people’s bodies are built to run marathons. Others to lift and labour. And some are made so graceful their footsteps are barely heard.
My body was built to be a vessel. It was Always You.

Maybelline Connors knows stars are not always as faultless as they appear. She knows life is not permanently concreted into its foundations and love can last a lifetime…even when a lifetime is shorter than one hoped.
Willard Connors knows that life will rob you. That dreams are just that—dreams. And no matter how hard one prays, a star riddled with faults will always be riddled with faults.

What Will is yet to learn, is that he is stronger and braver than he ever imagined he could be. And that gifts from the heart leave a lasting imprint—an imprint unable to be erased.
With life there is love… with love there will always be life.

Jessica’s Review


This book follows a woman through the most difficult journey of her life and it’ll make you cry buckets so make sure that you have a BOX of tissues handy because you will need them. I was pleasantly surprised that the receptionist name was Jessica and I loved that my name was in there. In the end I wanted to hug and thank each and every one of the Doctors and Nurses that helped May and thank them but I know in a way just by reading the book I did. I would give it more of a rating if I could. I never cried so hard reading a book in my life and I have Belle to thank for writing a fantastic yet not an easy book.
