Summer Lovin’

longest ride

Summer is that magical time. The time where you get to lie back, relax, and read to your heart's content. Whether it be on the beach sipping icy umbrella drinks, or snuggled on the couch in sub-zero air conditioned bliss we have a trio of romances to make your heart sing this January!

Nicholas Sparks' hit novel The Longest Ride is set to become a 2015 cinema blockbuster.  An epic love story in the tradition of his beloved first novel, The Notebook,  this is an unexpected and profound love story of two couples. Separated by years and experience, their lives are about to converge in the most unexpected - and shocking - of ways.

The most salacious novel of 2012 is also about to become a movie! If you've never picked it up before, now is the time to read Fifty Shades of Grey. Following the romance of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele it is not only romantic, but liberating and completely addictive.

Ethan Holt and Cassie Taylor had sparks. Have sparks. Until he blew it and broke her heart.
Now he's back turning Cassie's world upside down. The attraction is undeniable. But can she trust him with her heart again?

Full of raw sexual tension and intense emotional flashbacks, this all-consuming romance will have you frustrated and excited at the same time. You will want to throw this at the wall. You will HAVE to pick it back up to find out how it ends.

 

Reviewsday: The Best of Me

best of meOne of my favourite Nicholas Sparks books, this one had an ending I didn't see coming. I'm a sucker for a good love story and Nicholas Sparks is the master. This book didn't disappoint!

This is the story of high school sweethearts Amanda Collier "the girl next door" and Dawson Cole "the boy from the wrong side of the tracks". 25 years later, life has taken them down very different and seperate roads. They meet again after the death of a dear friend and it is very clear that the spark is still there. Like The Notebook, this is a story about love that endures and breaks boundaries. True to Sparks' form, The Best of Me will keep you turning pages well past bed time and stun you with an ending you REALLY didn't see coming.
