Heart of Glass (Fostering Love, #3)

Heart of Glass (Fostering Love #3)

by Nicole Jacquelyn

Published July 10th 2018

The next standalone novel from Nicole Jacquelyn about love, friendship, and forgiveness.

Henry Harris was living his dream as a staff sergeant in the Marines. When he’s killed in action, his devastated family is in for one more shock: he had a daughter they never knew about.

Morgan Riley has been raising Etta on her own, and that’s always been fine by her – until Henry’s brother Trevor arrives on her doorstep, willing to do anything to help and make up for his brother’s mistakes. Their attraction feels wrong, but Morgan can’t seem to turn him away.

Trevor is suddenly in too deep. He has always wanted a family, but Etta and Morgan come with complications. Yet as Etta brings them closer together, Trevor begins to imagine giving Morgan and Etta the life his brother never could. But he wonders if Morgan will ever learn to trust another man with her heart, especially a man whose last name is Harris.


4 Heart of Glass Stars on Goodreads

Books one and two in this series were two of my favourite books. They both had all the feels and I could not wait to get my hands on Heart of Glass.

Trevor and Morgan have both experienced loss in their lives. Trevor has lost hos brother, Someone he loved and trusted. A brother who left his family a huge surprise when he died. Morgan and her daughter are the big surprise. Henry has left his pension to Morgan to look after is daughter and Morgan is expecting his family to come get it back. What she isn’t expecting is for Trevor to walk into her life. Heart of Glass is a real slow burner, with Trevor battling between his loyalty to his brother and his family to his growing feelings for Morgan. Although I’m a little clueless as to how his feelings grew so quickly with very little connection to Margan.

Why in the hell did certain people have such easy lives when the rest of us had to fight for every piece of happiness we could grasp? And then, when life was ready to give us something good, why was it so hard for the have-nots just to accept it? Why was I standing in the arms of a man I cared about, one who’d forgiven me for treating him like crap, and I couldn’t even hug him back?

Nicole Jacquelyn writes the best emotionally books that has you feeling all the feels but this book was not like the first two in the series. It didn’t have the angst and only a small amount of emotion. Yes it was an enjoyable read however the ending was a little abrupt and I would have loved to have seen an epilogue.


Thoughts On New Authors and My TBR Shelf!


I don’t know if you’re like me and have way too many books on that pesky TBR list but I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump. I suppose its life just getting in the way. I’ve some great books and series that I’ve been dying to get through and then of course some new releases from the last week. Continue reading

My Top 16 Reads of 2016


Where did this year go?! I mean it feels like it just started and now I’m sitting here planning out my posts for the end of year. It’s just crazy with a capital K!

I don’t know about you lot but I’ve read some amazing books this year. I decided to sit down and try and weed out my top 16 for you all. This is going to be hard for me because I’ve read some kick ass books. In fact I think this is the first year I’ve read so many brilliant books and found some really great new authors. This is also my first end of year review as a book blogger and with Real Tasty Pages. I’m excited about this and a little nervous. I mean how am I only going to pick 16? That’s so little for the amount of great books I’ve read this year.

Also this year has brought me into a world of book bloggers and the craziness of it all. I have to say I’ve loved every minute of it and I’ve loved meeting some many cool chicks on all of my Facebook Groups! Your all mad but I love you! I’ve also dived into the world of Irish bloggers and I’ve meet some really great fellow bloggers and become great friends.

So on that note don’t be afraid to comment with your favourites I always love hearing what other people are reading. This is how I’ve come across some of my favourite authors in the past. Continue reading

Review: Change of Heart by Nicole Jacquelyn

Change of Heart (Fostering Love, #2)

Change of Heart (Fostering Love #2) by Nicole Jacquelyn

Release Date: 06/09/16

They’ve spent their lives pushing each other away, but what will happen when they need each other most?

Anita Martin doesn’t expect much from life. Growing up on the street, bouncing from one foster home to another, she learned to rely only on herself. Even after she finally found a loving family to take her in, she was still an outsider-something Abraham, one of the family’s older sons, never let her forget.

Abraham Evans doesn’t know how Ani always manages to get under his skin, only that’s she’s been doing it since they were teens. She is-and always has been-undeniably gorgeous. But he’s never met anyone as pissed off at the world as Ani.

For fifteen years, Ani and Bram have agreed on exactly one thing: they can’t stand each other-until one night when their anger gives way to passion. Yet even as Ani and Bram begin to secretly seek comfort in one another’s arms, they remain emotionally worlds apart. When Ani’s life takes a dramatic turn and she realizes she needs more than Bram can give, their fragile, no-strings relationship unravels. One way or another, Ani is determined to survive. But when Bram finally admits his true feelings, he may discover Ani has moved on without him..


5 All The Feels Stars on Goodreads, Read on September 09, 2016

After reading Unbreak My Heart earlier this year, I knew I needed Bram and Anita’s. This series just keeps getting better and better. Nicole Jacquelyn has never done any wrong in my eyes I love her books and this one was no different.

This book pulled me in from the first chapter I couldn’t put it down. It was such an emotional roller coaster and it had me bawling like a baby through most of it. But this didn’t stop me totally devouring it totally and not putting it down until I had it finished!

This series is a must read and I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series.

“You’re such a fucking pain in the ass,” Bram gasped, pressing against me as he kissed me hard. “Maybe if I just kept your mouth occupied…”

Author Bio:

Nicole Jacquelyn is the mom of two little girls and a full time college student. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. At eight years old, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told people she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve her answer changed- to author. By the time she was eighteen, when people asked her what she wanted to do with her life, she told them she really wanted to be a writer- but the odds of that happening were so slim that she’d get her business degree “just to be safe”. Her dreams stayed constant. First she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year- with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool, she sat down and wrote a story.
