    "This is a very good romance story about time travel, It is really interesting but I can't say that I enjoy the sex scenes. They are far too long and detailed. I don't really need a play by play of the whole ordeal. Other than that the story is well told and really held my interest. "

    "This book will throw you for a loop. When you read the title you might think a story like the famous Beauty and The Beast but it's not what you will get. The story is riddled with plots and secrets and I think anyone will enjoy it if they give it a chance. "

    "Riley Mackenzie by Riley Mackenzie is the first book I have read by this author. Overall, I thought the storyline was okay, but nothing to rave about. This is a love story which takes place in a hospital setting. I thought the story initially started out strongly but seemed to drag on when I was halfway through the book. To my understanding, this is the debut book by Riley Mackenzie, so hopefully, her storytelling will improve in her other novels."

I realize that The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is the best book with characters in the medical field. I have read, re-read, and plan on referencing The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks context in the future. "
