    "Out of The Box Awakening by Jennifer Theriot is a Great Romance Read! Out of the Box Awakening is a refreshingly different take on your run of the mill romance read. I love how the main characters are older, yet still very young at heart – still enjoying a good romp in the hay. Ash Harper is quite the catch! The author has done a fine job with multiple characters and I could identify with each one of them. I became emotionally attached and found myself left wanting more. I also love the importance of family and friends the author stresses in the book. I’m now onto the second book, Out of the Box Regifted to see what’s in store for Ash & Olivia and the rest of this interesting bunch! 5 stars for this wonderful book and highly recommended!"

    "Sometimes, we all need a little kick in the rump to get over a particularly nasty breakup. Suspending our own lives while getting lost in an author's fantasy land is a powerful coping mechanism, but unfortunately, nothing in the Twilight saga helped me during my time of need. This isn't particularly geared toward the breakup crowd, so while it's not an awful media franchise, it's not really fitting under this topic."

    "Bukowski was ahead of his time, or perhaps we have always had reason to see the glass half empty. Which ever, he had the ability to capture the dark side of life and in doing so, force light upon it. I liken it to tearing down a house to put light and heat into a dank and dark basement, forgetting dehumidifiers, larger windows and heat ducts. Get to the heart of the problem. He inspires in his own his battle, if it can be called a battle, with the obsessions that claim many of us."
