  • Contemporary Holiday Romance

    The Power of Love by Kemberlee Shortland Get out the kleenex! This heartwarming short story is filled with love, emotion and the spirit of giving. Short but sweet it is packed with a lifetime of love. I didn’t know how it would end but knew that Elaine and Ethan would be able to endure whatever they faced due to the true love that bonded their souls together. This is a romance that I believe should be read every year as a reminder of what true love is and what it can do. Thank you to the author for the ARC – this is my honest review. 5 Stars

  • Short, but Sweet, Romantic, Holiday Read!!!

    This book was a very short, but sweet, romantic, tearjerker (yes – you will need Kleenex!!), beautifully written, holiday read!! I liked the main characters, Elaine and Ethan. They were an adorable couple that were newlyweds and are still very much in love. It was sweet to see how happy and on cloud nine they were! I really loved the character’s passion and spark. It was obvious this couple were truly, deeply in love and meant everything to each other. You can feel their devotion, adoration, and love just radiate off the pages!! The author described a graceful and delicate love story that is tried and tested and proves love always wins in the end!! When Elaine finds out they are pregnant I was sad that she was nervous to tell her husband about the baby. I get that it wasn’t the plan to have a baby right away, but it’s a baby – it should be exciting and joyous! They’re married, employed, have a stable and safe home – finding out they’re with child should be a far cry from a teenager panicking when she finds out she’s pregnant. Thankfully, Ethan is over the moon happy – as a new dad should be – when he finds out the exciting news! I knew something tragic was going to happen – it’s in the blurb. So, I was prepared to hear bad news relating to the pregnancy. However, I was disappointed in the overall construction of that particular plot point as I felt there should have been more to it. It lacked medical terminology foundation, didn’t provide odds or rates of survival or additional information about the diagnosis, there were no further tests or labs ran, and no second opinion was sought out. If I received that kind of diagnosis, I would definitely do more than just say, “Okay. Get out.” But just accept what one Emergency Room Doctor said and go with that – absolutely not!!! Although, maybe they did, and it just got left out – it’s hard to tell when two months later is one page and one year later is the next page. I felt emotionally tangled in this story line and found myself going from overjoyed and excited, then anxious and worrisome, then sad and heartbroken, and so on. I was completely invested in the main characters and felt connected hanging on their every emotion as I turned each page!! There were many times I found myself totally caught up in the story! There is so much story packed into so few pages! Unfortunately, the story felt a bit rushed at times and like the author really could have done so much more with her plot points. In addition, the character’s arcs didn’t seem fully developed. Don’t get me wrong – these are strong, real, personal characters, and well written. However, I’m just saying many authors can barely reach their character’s arc in 250 pages and this book only had 32 eBook pages – so not much space to build and develop a character!! I really enjoyed that this was such a quick read and that I was able to just breeze right through it in less than an hour. However, there was such an intriguing and creative story line and fantastic characters that I wanted MORE!!! This so could easily have been – even just at 100 pages and I think it would have really made the story come together better and flowed more smoothly. It would have allowed the characters to have a stronger chance to develop and the plot points to fully reach their potential. It was an enjoyable read – just felt like there was some missing pieces! Although, a short read, this book is a great introduction to a new author – Kemberlee Shortland! This book provides an opportunity to just get your toes wet without the full commitment of jumping into one of Kemberlee’s fabulous book series – which you will definitely want to also pick up lol. This book is not part of a book series at this time and therefore, can be read as a standalone. All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it! I think all contemporary romance readers will like this book too! So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**

  • Emotional story, believe in love

    A quick look into the life of Elaine and Ethan. The emotions were strong and up and down. I smiled, I cried, and I smiled again. This story touched me so much I had to give it 5 stars. I still have tears as I think about this story. Their love for each other felt so real and showed that love can conquer a lot. I highly recommend this story but have tissues nearby. I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.
