I’m Ivy Clarke. Bartender, best friend, and disbeliever in love.

Game Changer – Book Review

All Romance Reads

game changer

Game Changer is a charming, clean New Adult romance about an unlikely couple who would probably never have found each other and fallen in love, were it not for an unexpected twist of fate.

Charissa Stastny has created a delightful heroine in Meridee, a girl-next door type who works night shift at the hospital and thirty hours a week at the college ice-cream parlor, all while somehow maintaining a straight-A average on her undergraduate degree. Meridee has a secret, however; plain face and boring life aside, she harbors an enormous, unrequited crush on Parker Harrington, star of the football team and all-around nice guy.

Walls of Silence – Book Review

 

Rating: 5/5

This book is amazing. The topic of abuse is not something you want to think much about. It is mostly hidden behind a wall of silence and if it gets public attention, it’s usually garish sensationalism. Not so in this book. It is completely beyond me how the author managed to write about severe abuse – both as a child and as an adult woman – without it being garish and shocking. The atmosphere is one of quiet pain and that gets under your skin.

I could not put the book down and read it in one go deep into the night. I have read things like this before, but usually I either mentally squeeze my eyes shut and hurry through to get it over with or I want to scream with outrage. Here, I found myself trapped right along with Maria in the wide-eyed disbelief that this could really be happening, enduring the suffering with her.
