Brenda Novak , Filling well

See at
"...At these times, I need to “fill the well” by reading for pleasure, listening to music I find deeply stirring and emotional, or reading quotes or poems that resonate with me. The musical score from Les Miserables fires me up every time. Same with Phantom of the Opera. Watching a good movie will also jumpstart my muse. My favorite is Last of the Mohicans. That emotional scene where the hero (played by Daniel-Day Lewis) is forced to leave the heroine (played by Madelyn Stowe) behind at the waterfall never fails to rejuvenate me. Taking a break to be with people helps, too. Laughter is a general cure-all.
The most important thing I can do when I run into a glitch in my story is to give myself time to work with it instead of overreacting. Panicking only makes it more difficult to fight through the rough patch. Occasionally, all I need to do is sleep. Somehow, my subconscious continues to mull over the problem–and when I get up in the morning, the path is once again clear."
Brenda Novak

Dear Brenda,
precious words about "fill the well". I need that time to recharge too, not to write but to live. Romances are a way to find that time.

Dark Skye, di Kresley Cole

Dark Skye (Immortals After Dark #14)Dark Skye by Kresley Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

She has made it another time: a story that captures hearts.

Thronos has won me, Lanthe has amused and moved me.

So, too fast paced? Not a problem, 'cause they are together. Too fast ending? Ok, if it's all good for our heroes. Too much gore and horrible details? Ok, if we have wonderful details about love in the next page. Too moving and desperate stories and feelings? Ok, because then...they are great to each other!

Kresley Cole rules!

Playing with fire, di Cynthia Eden

Playing With Fire (Phoenix Fire, #3)Playing With Fire by Cynthia Eden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's a good addition to this series.
Developed and interesting characters, Dante and Cassie captures the reader's mind with their story so rich in selfconfidence, pain, memory, sacrifice.
The events are only a little too fast-paced, in Eden's style: here-there-escape-safe home (of a male friend, but with female dresses of the right size for Cassie...?!)-revelations-escape-on the run--kiss-love-escape-revelations-on the run...My God, what a whirlwind!
At the end, the book is deeply involving, because the interactions and the growing of love between Cassie and Dante are really good.

Desired, di Alisa Woods

Desired (True Alpha 1)Desired by Alisa Woods
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

For a short story, a shorter review.
Not so compelling characters, quite boring story, predictable events, sly ending. Two stars for good writing and remarkable capacity to draw scenes.
