About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

Double Review Tour! Logan and Drew By Giulia Lagomarsino


I’ve lived my life the way I wanted to, not answering to anyone else. The result was friends that don’t have a very high opinion of me and a lonely life that I started to wish included someone who truly cared for me. Cece was the hottest thing I’d ever seen and the moment I had her, I knew that she was not just someone that would pass through my life. My attraction to her didn’t dim, even when she left me tied to a bed. Her spirit and spunky attitude didn’t push me away no matter how hard she tried, but I began to question if I could truly bring this woman around or if she would be the one to tear my world apart.
I had started over and made a great life for myself. Then Logan walked back into my life, but he didn’t recognize me. He had walked away ten years ago and devastated me. Now I would get my revenge and make him pay for hurting me. Who says that revenge can’t be fun? He’s still the same cocky guy I knew, but he’s also sweet and that made me question how long I could hold out for. I planned to thoroughly enjoy my time with Logan before I destroyed his life. I just hoped the cost wouldn’t be too high.

So, I thought that maybe after liking the second book in this series more than the first that whatever issues I had with this series were over. Unfortunately, this was not the case for Logan. I wonder if me and the author’s writing style just do not mesh and that could very well be the issue. I don’t like writing negative reviews and I try to be respectful always when I do have to. For me I just struggled throughout the entire book. I am not going to sit here and do a long drawn out review nitpicking the book, so I am just going to end this with as always form your own opinion, what didn’t work for me may work for you.


When Sarah walked into my life and interrupted my most intimate moments with my dead wife, I cursed her and vowed that I would never like this woman. She was a screw up and possessed something that was so precious to me, but just out of reach. Our paths continued to cross in ways that left me angry and confused, until one day I found myself becoming intrigued with my new neighbor and needing to know what it was that drew me to her. Could I move on from the woman I loved more than anything in this world, or would I find myself unable to let her go when the time came?
My life went from blissfully wonderful to completely devastating in a matter of hours. No longer able to live the life I once had, I was forced to become someone new. Even the gift that I was given wasn’t enough to bring me out of my depressed state. Still, I had no choice but to move forward with my life and make the most of the last and greatest gift I was given. No one would ever be able to know who I was or the secrets I carried. I would forever be another woman who couldn’t even properly mourn what had been lost. My new neighbor, Drew, was surly and completely hateful, at least he was with me. For some reason, I set him on edge and made him lash out at me. When we finally fell on somewhat even ground, would I be able to give him what he needed or were the secrets I held just too much of a burden to truly move forward?

Okay I have to admit I liked Drew a hell of a lot more than I did Logan. I was ready to throw in the towel with this series, but I hesitated , and while this one I liked more that is not in any way me saying that I liked the book a lot, because that is far from the truth. After reading this one, I can say that it is that I don’t mesh with this author’s style and that saddens me because I see the potential in the series and it is just not clicking for me. I am finding the characters to be one-dimensional, and even when I want to feel something for them I can’t. As always what didn’t work for me, may work for you, form your own opinion. 

I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
