Sweet On You by Laura Drake – A Review

Sweet On You - A Review

Title: Sweet On You

Author: Laura Drake

Genre: Romance

Publisher: Forever

Release Date: August 26th, 2014

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

 

An impressive book that reaches deeper into a subject matter, rarely dealt with in romance novels: PTSD. I was expecting a much more light-hearted book, but was rewarded instead with an emotional, raw story, with characters that had depth, and a “real” story. Very relatable for anyone who has either dealt with PTSD themselves, or knows someone who does, and how hard it is to get back to a relative normal life, this romance has lots of heart.
Two “damaged” people, who are in need to re-invent themselves, find a way to help each other, even if that was not how they originally expected to have it happen. With just the right amount of humor, the Author managed to make this deep subject matter, just light enough to keep it getting from being depressing, but at the same time takes it serious enough to honor its severity and importance.
I was not sure if I was going to like this book, as it is not my usual style of romance, but I am glad I read it, and will be looking for more books from this Author.

W Is For What Now?

The weird, wackiness of the A to Z Challenge is almost over, so it is time to contemplate what to write about in the wake of it, and most importantly how much.

With my head always in the midst of some kind of art form, may it be a really good book, or a movie I can hardly wait to share, there will be plenty to write about.

So when it is over, and it is over soon, I have planned for you the following:

 

A book review of “The Hero” by Robin Carr

A more thorough dissection of the documentary: “The Artifact”

download (36)

 

Flash Fiction – I will again┬áparticipate in the Friday Flash Fiction, so watch out for new, exiting really short stories

A look at Joss Whedon’s “In Your Eyes”, which is currently available on Vimeo, a rather unconventional release, but we should expect the unconventional from Joss by now.

and I will be talking about a few projects that others are working on, but I am happy to support in any way I can, especially because they deal with some important issues, such as bullying.

What have you planned to write about, once the challenge has been completed?

Have a wonderful week!
