[My Review] Fragile Longing by Cora Reilly

Title : Fragile Longing
Author : Cora Reilly
Publish Date : September 30, 2020
Mature : Yes
Rating : 3/5

Sofia is a girl who people see as her sister replacement and even her family didn’t know that she is suffering. She have a crush on Danilo and he know about it.

Danilo is a capo who is being left by his ex fiancé who is Sofia sister name Serafina. At first Danilo didn’t see Sofia as his wife but things change that make he finally realized that the Sofia is the one.

Firstly thank you for the ARC. I’m actually a little bit disappointed with this book because i expect this book will have some kind of emotion that will leave me crying my eyes out and book slump. I like the relationship that Sofia and Anna in this book. Sofia is more timid compare to Anna in the early chapter but I can see that her personality is becoming more when she is with Danilo and when they are trying to be a husband and a wife.

I understand why the title is fragile longing. It’s more about Sofia who is fragile but strong at the same time because she is losing her sister Serafina and their family is too busy with their mourning about losing Serafina to Remo and didn’t see that she’s also is suffering. Longing is the feeling of Sofia for Danilo. Danilo is sofia crush even when he is getting engaged to Serafina. She is longing to get his love as a Sofia and not the replacement bride. You can see how much she try to gain his love and it’s amazing when Danilo realize that he need to focus on Sofia and her love instead of focusing to get revenge against Remo.

“Many men continue to do as they please. Men always do as they please, no matter the damage they do.” – Sofia

“I’m not sure I know who I am anymore. Everything I’ve done these last few years has been to please others. I faded into the background to give Mom and Dad room for their sadness. I never asked Samuel for anything because I didn’t want him to think I was taking Fina’s place. I always adapted to everything around me. I was so stupid.” – Sofia

[My Review] Parker & Goodknight (Reed Security) by Giulia Lagomarsino

Title: Parker & Goodknight
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Mature: yes
Rating: 4/5

Parker is a ex military man who are discharge for a wrong reason. There’s a bad senator who are involved in this case. So Knight and Parker are trying to get revenge along with the other Reed Security.

Blake is an ex FBI agent that are being fired by her boss because she is trying to prove that there is something wrong with the case.

I miss knight and I’m glad that we have this book and the next one. As always i love reed security and there’s a humor in this book about Parker. I don’t know how to express how happy I am to discover and amazing writer like giulia. Blake and definitely join maggie. I’m sure that it will be epic and can make Cap go crazy. As always thw fight and action in this book really amazing.

The next part in Goodknight there’s a lot of action and a lot of emotion. I mean you feel so frustrated, angry sad and happy in one book. I don’t know how to write a review without giving spoiler for this two book. I will miss this man and their woman. They are strong and thank you to this author who write an amazing book.

[My Review] TNT (Reed Security) by Giulia Lagomarsino

Title: TNT

Author: Giulia Lagomarsino

Mature: Yes

Rating: 5/5

Thank you so much for the arc. I’m a big fan of reed security series. For the next series it’s about Tony Tacos. If you want to know how the book name is TNT instead of Tony, you have to read the book. In this book we can still get about the other guys from previous book. Especially our “knight”.

Molly is the heroin in this book. Molly is a little bit crazy, innoncent and happy go lucky girl who are basically in her own world. If Molly and Maggie is a team it will be totally epic and i’m sure that Cap is going to lose her mind compare to when he is dealing with Maggie and Sinner

Are you curious how the romance between them started and how it will going. How an alpha man who is struggling with the previous accident deal with the crazy Molly. If you are please go and buy the book.

The thing is, we can’t always be at our best. We have good days and bad days. Sometimes we make decisions that affect us for the restof our lives. But Tony, you can’t let those decisions determine who you are now. You have to fight to be the man you should be and can be – Molly

[My Review] A Mad Reed Security Christmas by Giulia Lagomarsino

Title : A Mad Reed Security Christmas

Author: Giulia Lagomarsino

Mature: Yes

Rating: 4/5

Thank you for giving me the chances to review this book and i’m sorry for posting it a little bit late from the date i promise to post.

If you have read the previous book of Reed Security. You know that trouble is always following them. Now almost everyone in the team have their own partner and having kid, plus in addition of few member like Tony Tacos.

For this new book, there is not a lot of action but i like that the author give almost everyone a chapter on their own so i can read from their perspective too. The author also seem to love it when the women in this book wear a boat neck style of clothing because i think every time the heroin wear a dress, it always a boat neck style.

I have a few question like how many kids that the couple already have since i keep forgetting about it because they seem to keep popping up babies. And in this book you can actually read a little bit about Becky (Our IT girl) relationship.

That’s all for the review.

First of all i want to thank you for giving me this ARC. I really enjoy this book and to be honest i did not expect to finish reading this book because there’s a few chaoter that is a little bit boring for me.

I really love the female character in this book and her relationship with her friends. I wish i have a friend like marlee and her best friends.

For Eli. I totally understand that he scared of commitment but when they are in that kind situation. I like how he handle it by considering Marlee situation before the event that happen to both of them. But there’s a few part where i really hate Eli.

Other character that i like in this book is Jase grandmother. She’s so funny. It’s a good character to be add in the book

Lastly i want to said that in this book there is no cheating involved.

First of all i want to thank you for giving this ARC. I love it.

This review might be biased because i’m a fan of L. Wilder. I love the theme of this book: age gape, mother with kids, action , suspence.

The author also talk a little bit about aspenger and it’s good thing since i don’t really know about this illness.

I also love the interaction between Harper and her mother but there’s a part where i can predict what is going to happen next so it’s a bit boring.

Don’t worry there’s no cliffhanger and it is a happy ending but like always there will be another books for other character like Gus and Gabriella since Cade book is a part of Love, Royalty and Mayhem Anthology

“Put your hand on your heart. ” He waited silently as I did as he requested. “You feel that? As long as your heart’s beating , then you’ve got a purpose. You’ve just gotta figure out what it is.” – Gus
