Review: Yes by R. J. Lawrence

yes rj lawrenceReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

Hannah is waiting for Ronnie to come in. Ronnie appears to be a very self-centered man. He also seems to be totally clueless where Hannah is concerned. Courtney is Hannah’s sister and they’re in Las Vegas together. Hannah goes to work with her sister and that’s where she meets Dominic Montero. Dominic is a man of mystery.

While reading this story, R.J. has kept me guessing as to what type of story this was going to be. I also found that R.J. is something of a mystery. One thing I don’t have to guess about is how erotic, hot, and dark it is. There are times that I felt like I was a voyeur.

When you get to the end of this tale, R.J. lets you know that this is a series. If you are like me and want to know what happens to Hannah and her sister, Courtney, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next in book two. It’s a quick read so if you only have a short amount of time this is a perfect fit.

I tried to do a search on the web for R.J. but came up empty except for Amazon and GoodReads. I’m hoping that as R.J. writes more that there will be more of a presence so we can see what else our author has in store for interested readers.

Review: Holly’s Inbox by Holly Denham

By: Zarabeth, guest reviewer

I give props to Holly’s Inbox for being constructed using a very unique style of writing; however as a read the whole going through email thing… well there’s a lot of narrative I missed. I wanted more when I had less. That last statement is kind of cryptic so I’ll explain a bit further. It would sometimes take 3-6 days before a new email showed up to share the background behind something that was mentioned.

You really feel like an outsider, because Holly clearly knows what all is being said and what it refers to but as a voyeur to her story, I felt pretty clueless at times. I wish that as a reader I was enlightened sooner. Overall I must say I was not a fan of reading through email.

The romance part was sketchy at best because they weren’t writing romantic love letters to each other. No poetic prose for me to sigh over. Instead of wildly romantic notes it was just the barest, the most vague of details. As a reader, we only know what she tells the other secretary in email so a lot was not very clear it bothered me…

The story came together eventually and it’s definitely a Happily Ever After. It was nice, but the email format not so much. That sentiment is probably redundant at this point, but clearly the formatting wasn’t for me. I hear there’s a book that’s all done with instant messaging style, ttfn (Internet Girls), and I certainly won’t go looking for that. The idea of that is just excruciating.
