Silent Sins by Audrey Carlan #BookReview

So, for my latest book review, I am telling you about Audrey Carlan's latest release in the Lotus House Series. Silent Sins is book five in the series, but can easily be read as a standalone story. However, I highly recommend that you read them all. Then once you have finished these books, you should read all her other books. Audrey is an excellent writer. If you pay attention to New York Time's Bestselling books, you have certainly heard of her before. There is a reason she is a best selling author, and that reason is that she writes amazing books.

Now, I want to start off with a warning... This book is deep, emotional, well written, beautiful, and contains some sensitive topics. If you have issues with reading about self-harm/cutting, this book may be a bit much for you. Though, Audrey does such a wonderful job handling it, that I suggest you try to read it. She handles the subject well.

In Silent Sins, we follow the journey of Nicholas and Honor, as they find their happily ever after. It is a beautiful journey, full of ups and downs, hurt, healing, love, passion, self discovery, pain, joy. It is an exquisite story. You will fall in love with both of the characters. You will find yourself cheering them on, and hurting with them. 

This book is extremely steamy. If that is not your thing, I honestly still recommend you still read it. There is plenty to this story, that is outside of the steamy parts, and you could easily skip over those parts, if you want to. Though, I must say that Audrey is such a wonderful writer, and paints such amazing pictures with her writing, that you may find that you do not want to skip those parts, even if you are not usually a fan of super steamy scenes in books.

This is a book that I feel anyone can enjoy. If you love happy endings, you will love this book. If you love books that really dig into characters journeys to their happy ending, you will love this book. If you love stories about characters you can genuinely relate to, you will love this book. If you love characters who start out broken, and watching them become whole again, you will absolutely love this book. If you love books that keep you turning the pages, wanting more and more, than you will love this book. If you love books with an actual plot, that is glued together by amazing character development, and steamy passion, than you will LOVE this book.

Another thing that may happen, is you may find yourself wanting to run to your local yoga studio and take classes. I had never been too interested in yoga, but with book one of this series, Audrey had me curious about it. Now, four books later, I am even more curious, and I am almost feeling brave enough to find a local studio. Audrey just has a way of writing about yoga, that makes you want to experience it for yourself.

So, do yourself a favor, and read this book. Read every book in this series. Read every book that Audrey writes. She is hands down one of my favorite writers. She is truly talented, and I am so grateful she chooses to share that talent with us.

Silent Sins (Lotus House Book #5)  
by Audrey Carlan
 #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author 
Releases 3rd April


Synopsis
My name is Honor, but I have none to speak of. I’m a high-society princess on the verge of ending it all. I have nothing to show for my life, though my bank account would say otherwise. Money and status has controlled every ounce of my world and I want no part of it. It’s what took away the most important person in my life. He’s gone and I’m alone, and no one is here to save me. Pain is the only pleasure I can feel anymore.
To find a healthier avenue to deal with my grief, I turned to Lotus House Yoga for salvation—and found it in the tall, dark, and brutally attractive Nicholas Salerno. He’s everything I’m not. Lives every day to the fullest, loves his family, and goes after what he wants with a thrust that’s unmatched. I can’t help but be swept up in his beauty as he attempts to show me the light and reawaken my desires. Except Nick doesn’t know what I’ve hidden, and I’m afraid he’ll despise what he finds…when my sins are no longer silent.

What I need you to know... I was given an ARC of this book to read and write an honest review. I was not paid or told to say anything, and everything I have said is my honest opinion.

  1. For me, "steamy" is a book by book thing. If it's an integral part of a more complex story, I don't have a problem with it. If it's just gratuitous, I'll put the book down. Sounds like this is a good story with some very serious parts and some steamy parts. Perfect.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!


Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.





This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
