It's never been all rainbows and sunshine for Tessa and Hardin, but each new challenge they've faced has only made their passionate bond stronger and stronger. But when a revelation about the past shakes Hardin's impenetrable façade to the core - and then Tessa suffers a tragedy - will they stick together again, or be torn apart?

So Disappointed

O.k. I know the other books weren't literary masterpieces, but the story was sweet and it sucked me in. They were enjoyable and I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen next.

This book was just boring! The story was very repetitive and all over the place. At times I found myself thinking "really". Some parts were just repeats from the previous books, while other parts were rushed and unsatisfying. There seemed to be a lot missing.

I enjoyed the series, but maybe three books might have been enough.

Kate Hart and Dominic Knight's volatile love affair continues in the last book in the All or Nothing trilogy from C.C. Gibbs. Being tied down to just one woman was the last thing Dominic wanted. But from the moment he laid eyes on Kate, he couldn't deny his overwhelming desire for her or his need to possess her.

I kind of enjoyed the first two books but this one was a waste of time. Not much to the story line. Really just felt like a money spinner. I wouldn't recommend.

It is 1939, Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings.

What did you like best about The Book Thief? What did you like least?

I loved the richness of the story and the depth of the heroine. It took me several chapters to decide if i was enjoying the story or not. It took some time for me to get used to the story being narrated by death, although in the end this was one of the things I liked most. I found the accordion music between chapters very irritating.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how it was narrated by death and how we saw his point of view.

What about Dennis Olsen’s performance did you like?

His voice was perfect for the voice of death.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes I would.
