#ReleaseBlitz~~ Make Me Hate You by Kandi Steiner #5BlushReview

Rating: Tera’s 5 Blush Review I devoured this book. I loved everything about Make Me Hate You. Maybe it was just the timing; how it felt like the perfect beach read as I read it while laying next to my pool. However, I’m gonna guess it had more to do with the fact that it was well-paced, had a great story line, well-developed characters with an ending that really worked for me. Kandi Steiner is well-known for her angst, and while this did have some of that, it was never enough to have me wanting to throw my kindle. I...

#FiveBlushReview ~~ The New Husband by D.J. Palmer

Rating: The New Husband by D.J. Palmer Louisa’s 5 Blush Review I am mainly a romance reader but there is one genre other than romance that intrigues me and it’s psychological thrillers and this book was exactly what I needed. A new to me author, DJ Palmer hit the nail on the head. The twists and turns were intriguing and had me hooked. Maggie was a pivotal character that I knew had some insight on Simon but there is no “proof” to back up her concerns.  Her concerns that this new man in her mom’s life is the good man...
