Build A Man by Talli Roland

****3 stars
I liked the idea of this book as cosmetic surgery isn't something I would normally reach for as subject matter. I liked the main characters, and actually found myself trying to talk sense to the characters. lol. Definitely a light read and enjoyable.

Not Without You by Harriet Evans

***** 5 stars Loved!
I enjoyed this book immensely. It had suspense and twists and a wonderful storyline. It was hard to put down and sad to finish. As always Harriet Evans puts out a book you won't want to miss.

The Guest List By Melissa Hill

**** 5 stars
I absolutely adore Melissa Hill's books, there is something about sitting down with one of her books and the absolute escape I get to enjoy. This book held true as her others and I found myself enjoying the characters and feeling a part of the story. I was sad to see this one end and look forward to her next one :)
