These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.
Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.
Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Going All the Way
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Although Going All The Way is the first in the Knights of Passion series, it is not the first of the books I have read. Each is a standalone novel, though, so it’s perfectly acceptable to pick and choose which ones you want to read (although I would suggest reading them in order). Having read the most recent of the books first – book three – I found it was nice to go back and read where the series started.
As the first book in the series, Going All The Way is a great introduction to the world. Having read a couple of the author’s books, I can safely say this book delivers all she is known for – passion, emotion, and a gripping tale. I’ll admit that it isn’t my favourite of her books, but it is a great first read for the series. Had I not already read one of the other books in the series, this one would have ensured I went on to read the future books. It sets the tone well, it leaves us with the promise of better things to come – and not to give any spoilers, but the later book in the series that I have already read does deliver even more than this one. In fact, I now plan to go on and read the second book in the series to ensure I am up to date with the Knights of Passion.
Going All The Way is a story of complex characters and the connection between the two. From the very start I was pulled into the characters story, wanting to know how things played out. They both gripped me, leaving me wanting more. Although there was some predictability to be seen, although certain reveals about the past were a bit on the clichéd side, I couldn’t help but love them both. There was a wonderful chemistry between the two of them, they worked so well together, and the development that occurred throughout was great to see. I admit that there were some points in the story where things seem to lull somewhat, but as a whole the story was a great read that gave so much more than a simple sports romance.
Overall, this was a great introduction to the series. Even though I know nothing about baseball, I’ve certainly fallen in love with the characters in this series. I am, without a doubt, excited to read the remaining book needed for me to be up to date with the series.
