Matter of Time

(Heat Wave #5) By: Alannah Lynne. Format: eBook. Read: April 2015.

Lizbeth and Logan were deeply in love back in college, when he left her to go marry his high school sweetheart and raise the daughter he hadn’t known existed. A decade and a half later, Logan has left his wife and thanks to his twin, Lucas, he stands a chance of meeting Lizbeth again. Unsure how she will accept his news, he still can’t help but put his heart on the line and hope she still loves him.

Matter of Time is a shorter novel, focusing on the relationship between Lizbeth and Logan. Readers may recall not being a fan of Lizabeth from the previous books, but in this story readers will get to see a whole new side of her. The story has some delicate, spicy scenes, especially when the two see each other for the first time. This is about true soul-mates reuniting and becoming whole again, after barely surviving the years of separation. Due to the focus being solely on Lizbeth and Logan’s relationship and his family, readers won’t get much of an update on previous couples from the series. Matter of Time showcases that true love will conquer all.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Going All In

(Heat Wave #4) By: Alannah Lynne. Format: ebook. Read: April 2015.

Callie Holden has done her best to put her past behind her. She’s learned the meaning of hard work and loves every minute of it. She still loves her friends from her past, even if her new life isn’t understood by them. Wade Neumann has spent a lot of time out with friends, making as many memories as possible in order to not focus on his heartbreak from last year. However when he is forced by his boss to work with the rich socialite who resembles his ex, it is going to take all of his power to remain nice.

Going All In combines characters from the previous two books in the Heat Wave series, but also works well as a stand-alone story. The beautiful scenery of Pawleys Island plays a big role in the book, as these characters struggle to make peace with their past. The storyline shows that no matter how much you deny your past, until you let it go, it will hold you hostage. There are some steamy scenes, but overall it focuses on human emotions, fears and learning to trust. Towards the end, there are hints as to what’s to come for the entire beloved Heat Wave family.

I read this book in one sitting, staying up until the wee hours of the night soaking up each word. It reminded me of the first two books in the series and is currently tied for my second favorite. I loved how I got to know more about these two characters, while also catching up on previous ones.

Note:The author gave me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Let’s Discuss…

Good Morning Everyone,

A couple of week’s ago, we discussed favorite genres of books. Today, let’s discuss length. Do you enjoy short stories, novellas, full-length novels or those epic 800+ page journeys?

I’ll admit, some short stories leave me feeling like something was missing or that it was rushed. However, when written correctly, short stories can provide a nice “vacation break” in between books. (Am I the only one that has a difficult time switching stories and characters, sometimes?) I feel the same way about novellas, too. 

I prefer the average length novel. Those massive books can be daunting, when you haven’t read the first page. However, when I was younger and I would have the summer off, I would set out to conquer one throughout those few weeks. I think in this day and age, not too many people have time to devote to reading the extra long tales.

What about you? How do you like your books, super short or super long?

Enjoy!
