#Read Me, Love Me, Buy Me (Book Review)

This Same Earth: Elemental Mysteries Book Two
Elizabeth Hunter

Beatrice De Novo thought she had left the supernatural world behind…for the most part. But when the past becomes the present, will she leave her quiet life in Los Angeles to follow a mystery she thought had abandoned her? Where has Giovanni Vecchio been, and why has he returned? Giovanni has his own questions, and he’s looking to her for answers.
The sequel to A Hidden Fire will reunite Beatrice and Giovanni to continue their search through the past while both wrestle with the future. When the world as you knew it has changed forever, is there any way you can turn back?
This Same Earth is the second book in the Elemental Mysteries series. It is a paranormal romance/mystery for adult readers.

I really enjoyed how the book started with entries from B’s journal. Although I got a little confused, but after going back through the pages I realized that the years were changing – once I got over my airhead moment – I thought the entries were a brilliant way to pass the years.

After five years of having no contact with B, Gio finally comes back into her live. I think Gio was expecting B to welcome him with open arms, but instead he gets a slap in the face (ha, pat on the back for B). I didn't think it was possible but I love B even more in this book, she’s smarter, feistier and doesn’t fall all over herself to get back with Gio (although I really wanted her too, but I was happy she stood her ground with him).

Gio has changed a bit too – after realizing it was a stupid idea to ignore B for five years, he starts doing things to get her attention in the hopes that he'll wear her down into taking him back –  it’s so cute…he fights for her, and that makes me love this Gio, so much more!

My favourite thing about the book is that you get to see a deeper side to Carwyn, when Gio and B visit him and his family – he’s not just a wise-cracking wrestling lover, he’s also a dad…

My rating for the book is 5 stars! I honestly love this series, Hunter has such a different take on the paranormal genre.

#Read Me, Love Me, Buy Me (Book Review)

One Love

(Lost in Love, #3)


"You'll always be my hero, baby."

With the worst behind them, Nate takes special care to help Kyle heal properly. Deep inside, Nate is still plagued with doubts of whether Kyle is ready to engage in an open relationship with him. Behind closed doors, Kyle is eager to be the boyfriend and lover Nate always dreamed of him being...but once they step out where the world can see them, will Kyle want to withdraw and hide again? But Kyle is fully aware of Nate's uncertainties and takes it upon himself to prove to the man just how "open" he is willing to be. 


So. After reading Carla's reviews of Book One and Two, I decided to add this to my reading list as well. 
What can I say - I got me the trilogy and started reading...and kept on reading...and reading...and reading...until the end. Then I looked around me, lying in bed, surrounded by piles and piles of tissues and started cursing my blog mate. For making me read one of the most heartbreaking and beautiful and heartwrenching stories ever. 
It wasn't so much what happened but how it happened that made me cry like a baby. 
The first two books dealt with a lot of heartbreak, shitty fate and almost lost love - and I was a wreck afterwards. Then came One Love. 
It was the perfect mix between a hilarious coming out - I won't ever get the pink penis enlarger tee out of mind - the most perfect proposal and one of the greatest wedding speeches ever. 
God, I'm a sucker for happy endings and this one was one the most perfect HEAs I've ever come across. Even though corny and cliché, it was just perfect for Nate and Kyle after everthing that had happened so far. "You'll always be my hero, baby!"

I'm deducting a half star because of my puffy eyes after the crying marathon. Half of it would have done too, dear Mrs. Snead! Otherwise a perfect read for everyone looking for the perfect romance.
