Wow. I’ve now been a published author for three years. Let’s just let that soak in. Three years. I realize that’s not a huge mount of time in the grand scheme of things, but considering there are days that feel as long as years, this is a milestone. In three years, my youngest daughter has […]

    The idea of a vengeful rice cooker is fun enough as a concept, but Pajonas’ execution and follow-through of the story bring it to life — almost literally. The story will have readers looking at everything around them differently, wondering about the gods living in them and the spirits inhabiting them.

    I love the concept of this. I think because their relationship is non physical due to their locations, they get a chance to really get to know each other. Instead of being able to give a reassuring hug, they have to talk issues or problems out in depth and they really get a feel for just who the other person is.

    Overall — I loved Summer Haikus. Romance, strong friendships & family set in beautiful Japan, it’s the perfect summer romance. Highly recommend!

    This book is exactly what I am looking for in a romance. It had a great story, awesome characters and a setting I fell in love with. The characters were likeable and I liked how Isa her panic attacks were handled, very realistic. It’s a sweet friends to lovers romance, with a few hotter scenes as well. Isa and Masa are just perfect together and I liked those little gestures that showed they really got each other.

    FACE TIME, without a doubt, made it into my favourites list, and I cannot recommend this book more. It’s a beautiful read that you can absorb yourself fully into, and I’m already waiting to see what story Pajonas will provide me with next.

    Sanaa is proving to be one of my favorite female leads. Not only is she strong, but she’s a damn good fighter. She knows how to do hand-to-hand combat, and she can wield a sword!

    RELEASED was amazing, I fell even more in love with this series and I couldn’t put this book down. I liked where the story went and I liked meeting the new characters and getting to know others better… The ending left me wanting more and the wait for the next book is going to feel really long, because I want book 3 now!
