Rebound (The Pentagon Book 1) by Rosemary Rey Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
How are you all doing today? I hope you’re well! 
I’ve just finished rereading Rebound by Rosemary Rey and I loved it! From recollection I loved it the first time I read it as well, about 5 years ago. 

5 Stars!
I read this for a few readathons:
For Reading Rivalry - A book I think should be a movie - I’d love to see this play out on television, actually but a movie is close enough. 
For Litwits - A love story - that’s the central plot of Rebound and the whole Pentagon trilogy. 
Literary Love Affair - Soulmate Love - Perla and Matt are what I class as realistic soulmates.
Popsugar Reading Challenge 2019 - A book by an author whose first and last names start with the same letter - Rosemary Rey. 
Rebound is set in America and is about an almost 30 year old woman, Perla Mercurio and a doctor, Matthias Keene who have a very passionate affair...do they fall in love??? You’ll have to read to find out...
Rebound is a very character centric novel. Not much happens plot wise, apart f…

Wild King (Sovereign Book 1) by Geneva Lee Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I hope you’re all doing well :). I’ve just finished “Wild King: Sovereign: Book One”(“Wild King”)by Geneva Lee. You all know how much I love my adult romances and this one did not disappoint.
4.5 Stars!
I read “Wild King” for a few readathons...
Popsugar 2019 Reading Challenge - A book with multiple character POV’s. I go into this in the review itself but briefly it’s told from both Clara and Alexander’s perspectives. 
Reading Rivalry - I didn’t finish it within the specified time for this to count, unfortunately but I got page count points. 
Litwits - again, I didn’t finish it for this unfortunately.
“Wild King” chronicles the events after Geneva Lee’s first series, “The Royals Saga.” You don’t necessarily HAVE to read this but I suggest it as it lets you know the characters from the beginning! There will be spoilers for the Royals Saga in my review!
In “The Royals Saga,”we met Clara, an American girl who’d just graduated university in England. At her graduation, she lite…

Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
Well, my second read of 2019 was great! "Strange Grace" focuses primarily on the relationship between three young people, two boys, Rhun and Arthur, and a girl named Mairwen. The book is like a whimsical fantasy mismatch that has elements of the old world, as well as some magic you’d expect to see it today’s fantasy literature. There’s personification also involved in the story too, as the forest becomes its own character. 
4.5 Stars!
“Every seven years their best boy is sent into the forest from sundown to sunrise, on the night of the Slaughter Moon. He will live or die on his own mettle, and by his sacrifice the devil blesses three graces.”
This is the main premise of the book. It’s set out in the first few pages, which I liked as it wasn’t lost in the flow of the story. The best boy is, of course one of our two heroes mentioned above. If he survives he can leave Strange Grace for good...what do the other characters think of this? You’ll have to read to fi…

Shaman Of Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 5) Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
I’ve just finished a great book, my first of this new year. “Shaman of Stonewylde” is the last book in the Stonewylde series, which is really sad. I think this is possibly my favourite series, apart from the All Souls Series by Deborah Harkness because it’s got everything I love. A good plot that always keeps you guessing, lovable characters who make mistakes but are redeemable, a lush fantasy like setting, as well as well written, sophisticated prose and you’ve guessed it, a great, realistic romance that’s present throughout every book, even though there are struggles at times for the main characters involved. I found book 1,"Magus Of Stonewylde" in the YA section of my local bookstore but by the end it certainly is NOT YA, not just because of any content, although the characters do grow up throughout (the love scenes aren’t on the page so aren’t explicit,) but because of how mature the writing is. It honestly felt like I was reading a classic at times. 
I…
