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: His Rules
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
His Rules is the second book I have read in the HIS Collection. Whilst I enjoyed His Rules a lot more than I enjoyed His Obsession, it still wasn’t quite enough to blow my mind. At a push, I would give this a possible three-point-five star rating. However, that rating would be based solely upon a comparison with the prior story. I was disappointed in His Obsession because it did not feel like a full-length novel, thus receiving a complete story pleased me greatly.
Dani Wyatt is a name I see quite often. I keep meaning to pick up some of the author’s work to try. In fact, I have a couple of the author’s books sitting on my Kindle waiting for me to pick up. Although His Rules did not blow my mind, it was enough to show me Dani Wyatt can write a gripping story, and I’m certainly interested in jumping into the other Dani Wyatt books on my Kindle.
The story itself was gripping, and it kept me turning the pages. I was interested to see how things played out and enjoyed the dynamics between the characters, yet I felt as though the story wasn’t quite all it could have been. To me, it felt a bit rushed. There were plenty of enjoyable moments throughout, but it felt as though it was peppered with clichés that were not as smoothly introduced as they could have been. They popped up to move the story to the next point, without giving us the depth that I usually like. In part, this is a reflection of how picky I am when it comes to stories of this length. I wanted things to move slower, to be given a deeper insight, as a way to allow me to appreciate the story more.
Overall, it was more enjoyable than my prior read in the HIS Collection, but I still wasn’t crazy about this one. I’m thinking this collection was not for me. I’ll read more as I had more, but they’re not high up my to-read list.
