The third book in the soul mate series is about Max’s best friend, Tony Gunari. Finding out the real identity of his best friend, it also made him decide to go out in the open and go back to his past and find out more about his family and his purpose. One of the things he didn’t see coming is a certain fireball throwing, sassy green-eyed redhead, Jillian, who may also play a role in his life.

After reading the second book, I was excited to read the next one and it certainly didn’t disappoint me, it blew me away. It has all the things I’m interested more fighting scenes, tarot reading, wicked wink, and the pacing worked really in the story. Soul Mate: Bewitched is unpredictable, clever twist and turns, and very entertaining for me. I love Max and Anna from the second book but Tony and Jillian. I’d say everything about came naturally. This is the specific kind of meeting and interaction I look for in stories. Their scenes and conversations are very smooth.

Vivid Images – Miss Lance is really good in showing us what’s happening and the best part for me are the fighting and also the different world, in this case, the world of the Dark Fae.

Characterization – As always, the author had done her homework very well with the characters. I especially how the characters are all unique and have their own eccentricities and degree or fraction of humaneness. I appreciate the emotions it triggered in me while reading the book.

I don’t have complains on this book. I’m excited to read the one. I definitely recommend this book to you, it’s full of adventure, it’s action-packed, and don’t forget it’s fantasy and romance as well. You really read this book. I love it so much.

Soul Mates: Scent by Elizabeth A. Lance

Soul Mates: Scent is written by the author Elizabeth A. Lance. It is the second book of the Soul Mate Series. If you want to find out more about her and her other books, click here.


Soul Mates: Scent is about a guy leaving a simple life, Max Fergus. One day, he met a woman, Anna, who seemed to captivate him despite knowing her for only a day. It turned out that Max is not the person he thinks he is. The only way to get the answers to his questions lies with Anna and family secrets his mom and dad had kept from everyone.

When I read this book. I couldn’t put it down. I love the characters. In fact, I picked this book because I love soul mate stories. The book surprised me because of the characters and their world. It is clever writing. The plots and twists are unpredictable and that’s the kind of stories that entertained me the most.

Vivid Images – Elizabeth Lance wrote the story as if it’s happening in front of me. I love the magical kingdom of the Fae, the possibilities in the Fae world, time controlling I wish I could have that, and the flashing.

Characterization – The characters are realistic and not forced, especially the relationship between Anna and Max. I also love their connection Tony is a great character as well. I love Max’s crew who helped them fight the antagonist. Their varieties really helped the story. The characters are new to me. This is the first time I read characters about them. The world they’re moving in to is so flexible. I say that because Anna and Max are different and similar from each other. I also love how the supporting character are not like fodders or feelers in the story. They have their own personality and uniqueness.

Family Issues – At first, I thought that the family won’t play a role on the book, but I was wrong. I love that the conflicts and misunderstandings in the past were resolved and how it somehow foreshadowed the next book.

Builds a little slow – The build up was a little slow for me but it made me like I can’t wait for the climax of the story to happen.

Soul mates – I love soul mates and I’ve been studying them for years. I understand well the dynamics of a relationship like that. It’s a little too perfect for me like they hardly had any conflict on the book, they got along the whole time.

Anna – I love her personality and how she’s never out of character. I love her speaking French too, but her lines should have been translated.


If you’re looking for a book with adventure, action, fantasy, and romance, I recommend you all to read this book. It will bring you to a different and you wouldn’t want it to end. It also gives us some idea to the unending conflict between the Fae and the Unseelie. It got me excited to read the next book. I just wish I got to read the first book but of course, you can still enjoy the book without reading the first.

Second Chances by Connie Stephany

When I read the title of the book, I just know in my heart that this is the kind of novel I love to read.

Second Chances is a finalist for the 2015 National Indie Excellence Awards and you can find out about other Connie’s books in her page.

To know more about Stephany, please visit and read my interview of her. Her novel Third Strike will be released this December so grab a copy now!


Second Chances is about Abby Simons who has to decide who deserves a second chance in her life; her fiance who gave her a valid reason for leaving her in their day or her former big crush who is now interested in her.

So what is my verdict?

My reaction while reading the book is while Abby talking about her crush, it made me re-live my experience when I was crushing on someone as much as Abby did. It felt great and it made Abby’s experience so relateable to me. That guy is my first true love.

Second Chances spoke directly to me as it tell its story. It’s clever of how Connie Stephany came up with the story with regards to  chances.

I finished reading this novel months ago, but I chose to post the review today on my first love’s birthday.


  • Vivid Images – The author told the story as if I was one of the audiences watching the story happen in front of me. I felt everything; the happiness, the pain, remembering the good and the bad memories, and the happy ending of course.
  • Unexpected Ending – What’s truly unexpected for me is her choice, but I’m emotionally gratified of the story. The way the resolution was handled and even how the connection between the characters, the chemistry, and compatibility of the characters and most important of all, how the relationship and the connection between the couple weren’t forced and was handled open-minded and is such a breath of fresh air.


  • Flashbacks – There were too many flashbacks and at some point, I didn’t care about some of them. The flashbacks were useful, but some of them distract me from the story and the theme of the story.



If you’re looking for a simple, and romantic story that will remind you of the thrill of first love, the happy memories, and also a story with a happy ending, this book is for you. The relationships were handled by the couples in the book in an honest and realistic way. I recommend people who loves romance, and who is in love with the idea of love to read this novel and you will learn so much about how relationships should really be in real life. I give it a rating of 4 out of 5.
