    "A mature and frank novel about the gritty subjects that at times are wrongfully romanticised, The V Girl is a compelling read that isn't afraid to explore taboo areas. Lila is faced with an abundance of hard decisions, no better options available and can only make the best of a terrible situation. It was interesting that it was set in a post-apocalyptic world when most of the threats and issues in this world are commonplace in our society as a passive epidemic. Rey and Aleksey were both well written, balanced and realistic for this world. Overall it was an intelligent piece for the New Adult genre and an example of the direction the genre should be moving in."

    "I absolutely loved the writing style. You truly feel the story. You just sink right into every word you read. They are projected onto you in such a way that you have no choice but to internalize them. Its one of those books that just has that ‘spark’, you know what I mean? That little bit of extra. This book had it. And despite the seriousness, it also had wonderful laugh out loud moment breaking up the heavy and allowing out to see another side of the characters. This book really drove home how no matter what someone shows you on the outside, you never know what personal hell they are going through inside. There is an unexpected twist at the end which makes you rethink all that you've read. Ten tiny breaths is the first book in a series. I'm looking forward to reading the books that follow."

    "I found Pushing the Limits to be a complex web of truths versus gossip, willingness to love versus love that makes no sense, friendships test, kept and lost combined with the mystery of what happened to Echo the night she got her scars. This book evokes emotions of sadness, longing, hope, confusion, resolution, and so many whirlwind emotions. Definitely a page turner."

    "A contemporary book about appearances, this will appeal most to women who watch nighttime television and shows such as The Bachelor, which is exactly what the lead character is participating in. Whimsical, but without depth. Likely less enjoyable to those who cannot fathom or appreciate millionaire lifestyles with publicity agents and spending accounts."
