The warm smile hit him right in the solar plexus, robbing him of breath. "You're welcome. I was thinking about what you said and... I can't change anything that happened. I just want to offer a truce, like you suggested."

  2. This sounds like a fun romance. I like the description in the book's beginning, and the 56 makes me want to know if the truce was accepted. I think I'd enjoy this story.

  12. I'm not big on romance anymore, but I do like the cover and 56. I've been in a funk lately, but hope to rejoin your meme next week.

  13. Every now and then I like picking up a Harlequin to sort of take a break between heavier books - this one sounds like a fun one to read.

  14. Puts me in the mood for romance.

  15. I've known many Cooper Ford types -- they grow 'em like that here in Texas. Great beginning!

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see!
