Review: Two Alone

Rusty is a successful business woman on a trip back home. Cooper is a grumpy veteran with a no-nonsense attitude. They’re on the same plane and, as luck would have it, are the only survivors when it crashes. Hurt, Rusty is dependent on Cooper for her very survival and, together, they struggle to make it alive back to civilization.

Don’t let me confuse you. This is also a romance. Though Rusty and Cooper start off disliking each other, they end up falling in love. Along the ride, they face predators, dangerous situations, and even dangerous people. I won’t say more, because I don’t want to give too much away.

Certainly Rusty and Cooper don’t fall into an easy relationship. He’s grumpy and lets her know what he thinks of her. In turn, she might be injured but she holds her own. They have more than their share of arguments along the way as they work through their issues.

The book is a really fun, light read. There are no complicated, twists in the plot or mysterious details to remember. It’s a great summer read and I’d highly recommend it to anyone interested in a wonderful love story to read at the cottage or at the beach.

Review: unBlessed

UnBlessed is the story of a teen trying to find out where she belongs. It’s a fantasy story in a different world but, for all its differences, it was familiar. The Melior city is familiar, the people react the way we do and the theme of belonging is one of my favourites. I had only read a couple of paragraphs and I had to find out what was going to happen.

Kisara is a Melior and their entire youth is focused on one event, the Blessing Ceremony. Like her peers, she’s been looking forward to it for years. She has her special dress ready, her friends at her side and her mother to support her. Things work out well for her friend, Lucien but they go very differently for Kisara. I won’t divulge what happens but I will say it’s unexpected and very important.

I loved the speed of the book. I honestly picked it up and didn’t put it down until I read the entire thing. It’s fast, unpolluted with long-winded speeches or stories, and it caught my attention from the start.

I loved Kisara. She was gutsy, likeable and kept her chin up in spite of being in some very difficult situations. I liked Lucien as well. His heart is always in the right place and it’s actually painful to see him try to do what’s right but end up messing up.

Sebastian and the Transeaturs had me at the start. They’re some of my favourite parts of the book. They’re mysterious, powerful, thrilling and kind all in one race. Amazing. Loved them.

Kisara’s journey makes a wonderful story, fun, light and with fantastic ideas. It’s an easy world to get into and one I would highly recommend.
