Book Review: Eyes on You by Kate White- 5 Stars

The book that got me out of my reading slump! I started this the other day and finished it all last night. I was so into the book I didn’t even take notes, or think about what I wanted to blog about, I just focused on reading and enjoying the story. I think that’s good to do, because sometimes before I would catch myself reading and only focusing on what I would put into my book review, and not really focus on the story. I had to stop and remember the reason I created this blog was because I enjoy writing, and reading, and it should never become a chore or something I feel like I HAVE to do. That said, I loved this book so much and of course I’m going to review it! 😉

Check it out on Goodreads.

LOVE Kate White. I’ve read all of her Bailey Weggins mysteries in the series except for the newest one. Her books are full of suspense, romance, and a bad-A heroine. “Eyes on You” is a stand alone that follows the story of Robin Trainer, a successful author and TV anchor. When mysterious things start happening to Robin following her successes, she begins to feel like she’s going crazy and has to get to the bottom of who’s pulling all these horrible stunts on her?? Props to Ms. White because I did not figure out who the bad person was until the very end when it was actually revealed. I kept going back and forth between suspects and even questioning Robin herself (like she does, you’ll understand when you read it).

Ms. White developed all the characters superbly. Robin is a sexy, successful woman, but she appreciates the help of a knight in shining armor, and isn’t on a high horse about her success. She knows she is awesome, but she also knows her bounds and not get a huge ego. My other favorite character was Alex. A handsome, somewhat mysteriously vague coworker, I found myself at times questioning his innocence, but ultimately enjoyed the growing relationship between he and Robin.

Overall, a fast paced, exciting, keep you guessing read once again by Kate White! I can’t wait to read another by her. Have you read any of Kate White’s books? Also, have you ever felt the same way about reading/writing/blogging? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

Book Review: Sleep Tight by Rachel Abbott-4 Stars

sleep tight

Summary from Goodreads

This book was free on Kindle a while back, and I was looking for a good psychological page turner one day while browsing my Kindle books and decided on this one. It was SO fast paced and kept me engaged from page 1. There were so many twists throughout this book-it kept me on the edge of my seat constantly! Sleep Tight tells the story of Olivia Brookes, and how a marriage can go from zero to crazy in .5 seconds flat. What do you do when every move of your life is dictated and controlled by one who supposedly loves you? When he promises to take away the only things that matter more to you than life itself, if you leave him? This is the questions Olivia must face and answer in Sleep Tight! In only a few short years, Olivia’s world has been turned upside down by losing loved ones in sudden, confusing ways. Then, Robert comes riding in on his Prince Charming horse to save the day… LIES>

Robert is seriously freaking creepy. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because the ending left me so dumbfounded, I’m actually confused. It wasn’t just a plot twist or anything, but I’m literally lost over the ending! The author did an amazing job developing all of the characters, even the supporting ones, and I was interested in learning more about them just from the brief moments in this book that I was introduced to them. I really enjoyed Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas. His character seemed so warm and lovable, but with a dash of tough cop not afraid to take down the bad guys. I hope to read more from this author!
