    "This book is life-changing. It's deeply emotional, and the non-fiction aspect really drives it deep into the heart. I'm assuming this was actually released in January, but regardless, I think I can agree that this is one of the best books to come out in 2016."

    "I've been a fan of Susan Dennard ever since I read her first novel Something Strange and Deadly. I was hooked on her style since the very beginning and her books only keep getting better. This book was truly a joy to read and would recommend it to anyone into fantasy novels!"

    "This was kind of difficult to get through. I definitely don't think it's the BEST book released in January 2016 but it's moderately good. Some of it was really entertaining but there were parts that were hard to get through. "

    "Fever is the eighth book in the Fever series by Karen Moning and it is the most recent one I have finished. I love the first seven of the series, but this was by far the best so far. If you liked the first seven in the series, you will love this one as well. Moning outdid herself on this one. "

    "I bought Passenger because I was trying out a good book from each year and wanted one from 2016. It seemed to have decent reviews, so I gave it a try. However, it was a bit formulaic, so I don't think it would rank up there as one of the best. I would try out other books instead. "

Dean is someone any lady can fall for and you will enjoy reading about the sexual escapades of this hockey hunk. "
