The Break by Marian Keyes

Oh wow!  Marian Keyes is back and with one very loud bang!  Until recently Marian Keyes was an auto buy for me, she only had to write it for me to need it.  Not sure if it was me or her (God forbid!) but I hadn’t loved her last few books.

However, Marian nails this story of a husband who decides to take a six month break from his marriage, not quite realising that this means his wife is on a break too. And he completely misses all the wider implications too.

This book will give you the squidgees, make you laugh, think about your own life and break your heart but maybe not in that order!  Above all you’re going to be asking if you were Amy what would you have done?! Read it and ask yourself.

Personally, I think I would have kicked him hard somewhere and then chucked his stuff out the window.  But then that would be a different book!

The Break needs to come with a warning – don’t read in public especially on the train! One minute I was laughing out loud and the next a tear was winding its way down my cheek. No one does extraordinarily ordinary characters like Marian.

A totally gorgeous read!!  Just be prepared to ask all your girlfriends – what would you do?!

Tom’s Redemption

Forbidden Bonds By Lexi C. Foss (Immortal Curse #2)

Fast paced action, spell binding romance, bone crunching betrayal, political intrigue and adventure galore. Lexi C Foss’ Immortal Curse series just went skywards.

Having created an immensely strong and compelling world, Ms Foss sets out to prove that one of her villains isn’t as bad as fans suspect. And what a cracking job she does. Tom is redeemed!

Of course we have Amelia. She’s the quintessential heroine, needing no redemption – well not yet, anyway. There in is the fun! Ooh poor Isaac, his little sister has transformed from the sweet darling he worshipped to the kind of kick arse heroine Tom needs! Her change and her absolute fight to get what she wants had me glued to the page. Woe betide these boys who make decisions for the new Amelia!

The battle between the Ichorians and the Hydrians is in full force. The complexity and subtleness that Ms Foss has bought to her paranormal world is superb. I’m not going to make author comparisons, but The Immortal Curse series needs to be on the kindle of any PNR fan, no exceptions.

But start with book one, and enjoy Isaac!
