Dark Touch by Elle Lewis is book one of The Glass Star Trilogy. This book is a paranormal fantasy. The entire story is very engaging. The female lead from the book Sloan is an independent girl who is hiding from her past. She encounters a strange homeless man who touches her at a traffic signal leaving her skin burning and painful. She cannot figure out what’s going on when she encounters the same man (this time with wings) again trying to kill her in a park. The whole story turns around when another winged creature comes to Sloan’s rescue. She falls in deep dilemma about her whole existence and the events occurring in her life.
She finds help in the form of Old Joe with whom she fells in love eventually. But Old Joe also fails to protect Sloan from the dark creatures. Eventually, Sloan decides to trust the golden winged creatures to give her answers about the whole thing. This book definitely is a good start for a Trilogy. I am definitely going to read the next book in the series.
The author’s narration is very good. There were some action sequences in the novel and I could literally watch the fight in front of my eyes, reading the description. I enjoyed the book. This is a good read for all age groups especially young adults.
What Matters Most by Helen Bea Kirk is a cool book. It was a quick and easy read. Thanks to #Booktasters for introducing me to this wonderful author Helen. The female lead in this book Meagan is a very strong and independent character. I liked her very much. I like how she didn’t lose hope and didn’t give up when she was robbed. She is someone who fights for what she loves and she definitely is an inspiration. King, the male lead is a nice man. He is a tough man with a soft heart. He loves his family very much and goes to any extent to protect them. I hated Gayla, King’s girlfriend at the start but I was very much impressed how the author turned her story around. I must say every single character in this book has a story of their own and it feels very realistic.
I totally enjoyed the book myself. I recommend this to all ages. The establishment of characters is very well done. The title justifies the story, after all, FAMILY is WHAT MATTERS MOST!

Table by ML Nystrom is a wonderful book just like the previous three books in the series. ML Nystrom never seizes to surprise me with her wonderful narration. The best thing about her books is every single book from her pen has a very strong female lead character. I totally wanted to read the story of Table when his name came up in the second book Stud. I’m glad the author wrote it for fans like me. Lori is trying to hide from a terrible past when she bumps into the handsome single father Table. Lori finds herself in love with Table’s daughter, little Angel and Table, too. Table understands her fears and makes sure of Lori’s safety and fights for her. The story is very engaging. Table is a wonderful person, who keeps his promises and stands in the way of danger to protect his family. I was not much into MC romance stories previously, but after reading ML Nystrom’s books, I think I’ve changed my mind. I’m totally in love with Table. I hope there are more such wonderful stories coming from the author.

I’ve had stories in my head since I was a child. All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest. I’m a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it’s only fitting I should write a few myself!
I’ve spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean I’m pigeon-holed into one mold. I’ve been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring. As one of my students said to me once, “Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities.” I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world. I hope you enjoy it!

Breaking the Rules by Emma Leigh Reed is a wonderful book. The female lead character, Isabelle seems very weak at the very beginning of the novel. The reader will be surprised to see the transformation of Isabelle by the end of it. She attempts a suicide and fails in it. She feels out of place while with her parents. When she falls in love with Jack, she finds happiness in his company but pushes him away thinking that she doesn’t deserve to be happy.
Isabelle finds a new job and moves to a different place after her heartbreak. She continues living in a shell afraid of causing herself yet, another heartbreak. The whole story changes when she meets Nick accidentally. Her walls start cracking around Nick and her fears kick in forcing her to push Nick away. Nick stands like a rock and helps her in fighting with her demons of past and fears about the future.
With the new found strength, Isabelle sets out to find out about her family secrets. The story is very engaging. I like how Isabelle finally forgives herself for her mistakes in the past and gives herself another chance at the future. The author did a great job. The story was very easy to read and in some parts, I could see myself in Isabelle. This is a very good read for young adults but I’m sure anyone would totally enjoy this book. I really hope the author is planning to write a sequel to this book sometime soon.
