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: Whiskey & You
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn’t quite sure what I had been expecting from Whiskey & You, but whatever ideas I had in my mind were nothing close to the story H.J. Bellus delivered.
I will be completely honest, I was a little bit unsure about this one during the first couple of chapters. I wasn’t crazy about our male lead, and I was waiting for the good stuff to kick in. A handful of chapters in, however, things picked up and refused to let up. Before I knew what was happening, I was addicted to this one, turning pages at a rapid pace, quickly finishing as I absorbed all the details.
This one surprised me, in so many ways.
Whiskey & You turned out to be a much heavier read than I had anticipated. I went in expecting this to be a quick and light read, only for it to wrap around my heart as it squeezed tight. There was so much throughout this one, so many things that will leave you sucked into the story. It’s not one for the faint of heart, not with the topics involved, but those willing to deal with the depth of emotion will be blessed with an amazing read.
It’s more than just a romance, it’s a story of survival. You find yourself rooting for the characters, desperate for their happy ending, for the necessary vengeance to be handed out. As the story unfolds, as more details come to light, you’re sucked in ever deeper. Each new piece of information that appears will chip away at your defences, leaving your raw and exposed.
Honestly, this one shocked me in the best way. I enjoyed this one in a completely different way than I’d expected, and so much more than I’d anticipated. I’ll certainly be picking up more H.J. Bellus in the future.
