On the Island On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW, this was a good story. It's a little unsettling at parts because you really want them to get off this damn island! I mean... how much can one person suffer before they give in to their suffering??! I thought this was a great example of how you find love in the most unexpected places and that even at your lowest point in life, when you're not completely alone, you still have something to look forward to. Looking for many more books from this author; this debut novel was fantastic!

"Tough Critic Book Reviews" is doing a giveaway for Jamie McGuire's "Eden" which will be available for ebooks on May 1st. I absolutely LOVE this series and have been so impatiently waiting for it to release! If you want in, follow "Tough Critic Book Reviews" blog here.

The review is as follows:

"Eden picks up exactly where Requiem leaves off. I mean literally! Jared and Nina fall asleep in Requiem and wake up in Eden; you don’t miss a thing! So what exactly does our leading lady wake up to? One word, J-A-R-E-D! Oh sweet angel babies! The things that come out of that boy’s mouth; that sweet, beautiful, angelic mouth. His wedding vows shot straight to my heart (and maybe a few um “other” places) and melted my very soul. He even had me saying, “I do”. OH. MY. GOD! I’m seriously going straight to hell for having these thoughts about a half angel. He’s so passionately devoted to keeping Nina safe, I get turned on just reading his name.

The last half of the book is non-stop action!! Once everything came to a head, I almost started to hyperventilate. All I could think was, “There are not enough pages left! Oh my God where’s the rest of the book!! It can’t be almost done!!” I finally came down off my brief period of psychosis in order to bitch slap Nina for her complete FUBAR of the situation. Of course she has Jared to save the day…again.

From start to finish, sharing Jared and Nina’s story has been quite the ride. We get to experience their first kiss, their first fu—fuuun date ;-) The entire story is epic. Providence brought us the passion and excitement of many firsts. Requiem brought us an action packed sequel and Eden did exactly what a final book is supposed to do; it brought completeness.

Since I was given Eden as an ARC, my final page had the word PROOF written in big bold letters! I can’t help but smile about how ironically fitting that is; the perfect ending. This entire series is PROOF that Jamie McGuire is a literary force to be reckoned with. The word Eden represents beginnings and I hope this is just the beginning of what Ms. McGuire has in store!"
How good does this book sound??! TOO EXCITED!
