“Don’t move. I’ll check.” Gabe walked forward, moving bodies along the way to create a path for himself. He went out the front door and disappeared. My breathing was erratic and my heart even more so as I waited for him to return. After a few minutes of just footsteps outside the walls, he returned.
“We’re clear,” he said.
Review of the Week
Posted by Melannie S for The Last Legacy: Season One
I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book.
After biological weapons are dropped in North America, Lana finds herself alone in a world gone mad. Alone she can handle. She grew up in foster care and never had anyone she could trust. But the chemicals from the biological weapons have turned many of the population into eaters. They roam the countryside eating any humans they come across. Add to that a band of savage humans who pillage homes and rape women, and Lana can't handle anymore. When Jim protects her from the rapists, she isn't sure whether to cling to him or run from him.
Review of LAST Week
Posted by Laura at Sweet Reading!
Boy did this book fill me with the warm and fuzzies!! I adored Finn and Lindsay’s story! I am now conflicted on which couple I loved more. Luke and Maggie from For The Love Of Ash or Finn and Lindsay from For The Love Of Hockey. Luckily, Luke, Maggie and Asher all featured in this story, so I got my fill of them too!
I would personally recommend reading For The Love Of Ash before starting this story so you know the back story of the secondary characters in this book. And why wouldn’t you want to anyway, I can say without a doubt, this is a brilliant series.
Finn and Lindsay’s story is one of a second chance at romance. Finn and Lindsay were highschool sweethearts, but at eighteen, Finn broke Lindsay’s heart and left her devastated, ending the relationship before leaving for a career in hockey. Finn didn’t want to pull Lindsay away from her family to follow his career wherever it took him incase something happened and she couldn’t be there and came to resent him for it. Lindsay was the mother figure to her siblings. Trying to protect them from an abusive father and drunken mother. Lindsay didn’t know this was why Finn ended things with her though and held so much resentment towards Finn as a result. She thought their lives were planned out together.
Six years later, after avoiding Finn as much as possible, Finn and Lindsay are thrown together as they are both participating in Luke and Maggie’s wedding and are both helping with the planning. Lindsay being maid of honour for Maggie, Finn being co-best man for Luke, as one of his best friends, but also factoring in that Luke is Lindsay’s brother.
Finn has always regretted his decision of leaving Lindsay behind and makes it known, But Lindsay isn’t interested, claiming she hates Finn. Finn is determind to win his highschool sweetheart back though. Can Finn earn Lindsay’s forgiveness? Can Lindsay let go of the heartbreak from six years ago?
Finn…….Swoon!! I loved his determination to win his woman back. Despite a few slaps across the face, he just kept on trying. I liked his humour and cheeky attitude…….
“Whatever. I did. Happy?” She sighed. “If I promise not to flaunt Paul in your face, you promise not to kiss me?”
S*t. It was a truce I really didn’t want to give in to. I wanted to kiss her more and I knew I’d get under her skin just long enough to make her remember how much she loved me. Just staring at her right then made my hands itch to touch her.
“Deal,” I said. Little did she know, my fingers were crossed behind my back. If I ever got an opportunity to kiss her, I’d take it. No question. Any chances with Lindsay were mine to seize.
Finn wasn’t afraid to show his emotions and didn’t hide the fact that he wanted Lindsay back from anyone. He was a very determined fella!
Lindsay was more reserved when it came to Finn. Or actually I would say cautious. After looking after her siblings, putting everyone before herself, I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, hoping that Lindsay would give Finn another chance. Allow herself a shot at a happy future. Despite the fact these two had grown up alot over the six years apart, their deep rooted feelings remained just as intense.
Taylor has produced yet another emotional five sweet read in my opinion. Writing from both sides of the story, giving insight in to Finn and Lindsay’s thought processes, true feelings on the inside and their turmoil. Taylor’s writing is so descriptive, it feels like real life not a story. Like you are right there along with the characters for the ride. Reading Taylor’s books, you are drawn in to the characters emotions and feelings, like you know them, you forget that they are fictional ha ha.
I feel so involved with the For The Love series. The Wilson family background breaks my heart and I just want to bash the heads of their mother and father. I CANNOT WAIT for Lily’s story!
Overall an emotional story, with ups and downs. Twists and turns. Family abuse. Hot sexy times. And hot sporty men. There is a whole lot happening in this story and you are addicted from the very first page. I love Taylor Lavati!

"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
