Book Review: Someone Else’s Shadow by Monica James

Someone Else’s Shadow by Monica James is LIVE!.  Check out my spoiler-free book review of this standalone romantic suspense thriller. 

Someone Else’s Shadow by Monica James Kindle Book
Synopsis:

My name is Peyton Lane, and I have no idea who I am.

Six months ago, I woke from a coma with no recollection of anybody, anything.

My family tells me that I’m a good woman, that I’m loved. It seems I’ve lived a full, rewarding life, but I would give all of it up in a heartbeat to remember who I was.

My mind is a blank slate. Every moment in time wiped clean.

But there is one thing I can remember, something I haven’t dared to tell anyone about—a mysterious oak tree, a red ribbon, and a vision of drowning.

I know the answers I seek lie buried at the bottom of a lake. And that’s why I’m here in South Carolina. The memory I have is something I witnessed…

So I wonder what it would feel like to remember…remember who I was, but more importantly, remember what I did.

Synopsis: 

England is bleeding.


And there isn’t a thing I can do about it.


I am once again a prisoner to Wessex, captured by King Egbert because holding me hostage will bring

But I don’t need saving.


I am Princess Emeline, and I was taught by the best, and his name…Skarth the Godless.


The man whom I love more than anything in this world.


But things begin to blur when Ulf the Bloody reminds me of the promise I made, and that promise is that

I belong to him.


We must work together to overthrow King Egbert, but the war I fight within my heart is far more

dangerous than anything I will ever face on the battlefield.


The choice is not simple because we all must make sacrifices. But I soon realize that all is not fair in love

and war.


Lives will be lost.


Hearts will be broken.


And come dawn, life as we know it will be changed forevermore.

Spoiler-free Review

Fall of the StarsFall of the Stars by Monica James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All of the stars! If you read North of the Stars (In Love and War Duet Book 1) by Monica James, there is no way you aren't reading Fall of the Stars (In Love and War Duet Book 2). I set my expectation level pretty high for the second book. I had a severe case of Duet Anxiety (DA)? I think it's a real thing, lol. Is it when you're about to start reading the second book in a two-book series and stress out that the conclusion isn't going to live up to the excitement of the first book? I'm thrilled to tell you that Fall of the Stars is an epic masterpiece. I feel like I won the book lottery!

I could literally see this story playing out in my head like a movie while reading this book! It gave me all of the Brave Heart movie vibes. You'll know what I'm talking about if you ever watched it. Everything about this book was perfect; the characters, edge of your seat excitement, and the spice factor. I especially loved Emeline. Without a doubt, she's one of the most badass heroines I've ever encountered. She is fierce, loyal, and takes what she wants in a big way! That's all I'm going to say because I want you to experience this book yourself. This duet is on my Best of 2022 book list.

BLURB

 

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date. 

Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on. 

Exactly what I needed after my breakup. 

Or so I thought… 

Until my real date arrived.  

Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up. 

To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. 

Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date. 

I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet. 

But my real blind date and I had no connection.

So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game. 

When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.

Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.

Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy. 

A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled. 

You guessed it: Dimples. 

Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play. 

And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood. 

He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.   

Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right?

Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.

The Summer Proposal Video Edit Kindle Crack Vi Keeland

The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland is releasing on January 10, 2022. A few days earlier, and it would have landed on my Best of 2021 list. I was a third of the way into this book, and that’s when I knew that I was head-over-heels for Max and Georgia, and totally invested in these characters. Their relationship made me fall in love (again) with Vi’s writing. The Summer Proposal reinvigorated my love of romance books. These characters couldn’t be more perfect. This hockey romance pucked with my heart. You’re going to pucking love Georgia and Max!

I propose that you one-click The Summer Proposal on 1/10 and start the new year off with this perfect romance! This winter release will warm your heart!
