This is precisely what I'm asking myself regarding my maintaining a blog here on Webs.com
For almost a year I've received hardly any replies or comments to the 87 book reviews I've posted. If I could get even a handful of comments regarding them, I would be a HAPPY CAMPER.
What hurts me the most is that I haven't received any remarks regarding what I've been going through with the condition of my dear OH.
So I've decided to stop posting entries to this blog if I don't hear anything from any of my followers here.
With sincere regards
Robin Leigh Morgan

“When We Love” is story particularly any woman can relate to as it’s what they truly want in a relationship. Young women are suspicious about guys as they believe all they basically want is to get them in bed for, as you might suspect, for sex. And as for guys their suspicion is that all women are only interested in how much money they’ve got.
Once both believe they’ve at long last found their soulmates things on occasion change drastically, and their so-called one-time wondrous relationships has hit rock-bottom, and if it ends they’ve got a tendency to become “shell-shocked” about entering into any new relationships since neither wants to be hurt again. Such is the case with Lauren and Hank.
Both of these characters need to fill the void in their lives, and when they first meet they sense something about each which might make their lives once again complete. For Hank, Lauren’s a refreshing change from all the other women as she’s apparently only interested in the man he is, and nothing else. However, he’s slow in accepting her love due to all the negatives he’d experience from his ex and the other women he’s seen. And then there’s the possible threat from his ex, who’s still lurking around in the background trying to insure he can’t find the happiness he seeks.
For Lauren, she got over her past sooner than Hank and began to open up to him, but he need more time to do the same so he can accept Lauren for the wonderful, caring person she is.
Lauren’s “well-meaning” actions create problems she didn’t need or wanted. In the end she learns a life changing lesson regarding relationships and this thing we call love; which is why I loved the very appropriate title she has given her novella and why I’m giving this endeavor 5 STARS.

With the posting of my last book review I’ve hit a milestone in my 2nd second career as a Book Reviewer which I began only 10 months ago. I’ve now 150 reviews listed on Amazon, with 96% of my reviews being deemed helpful; and a Ranking of 7,756.
I wish my other second career as an author, could be just as successful. The first novel I wrote is a sweet MG/YA Paranormal Romance novel entitled, "I Kissed a Ghost" which currently has currently has a decent average of 4.1 STARS based on 22 Reviews
My second book is a collection of 100 Flash Fictions I’ve written, with the vast majority of them consisting of only five sentences. The book is entitled “Micro Fiction – An Anthology” and it has so far received two wonderful 5 STAR reviews.
I currently have two WIPs in the process of being written, with both of them about 85% - 90% completed.
The first is an adult Contemporary Romance with a paranormal element running through parts of the storyline which is entitled,
“His Darkest Secret.” The second is a MG/YA Urban Fantasy novella entitled “The Secret of the Well” and is a stand-alone sequel to my first novel which has a romance has a backstory.
I’m also in the process of compiling a second volume for my Micro Fiction Anthology. I wouldn’t have these two careers in addition to being a blogger, etc. if not for you my followers. So THANKS for being here.
Love and Hugs

I’ve read/reviewed all genres of books including one which tells the story of a young girl finding what she’d believed had been the type of relationship she’s always dreamt of having with a man and despite her parents desires, runs off and marries him. It is only then she realizes the reality she’s unfortunately had gotten herself, and ultimately her child, involved in until she finds the way out; and the rollercoaster existence she went through until she finds the happiness she’s longed for. The story reads like a diary, a secret diary the character is allowing others to read.
The only difference between this book and the one I’m reviewing here is one major fact, and that difference is the one I’m reviewing now is REAL LIFE and the other had been merely a fictionalized version of it. As I read this book I had to keep reminding myself of this point several times.
The reality of what the author had to live through is a horror no woman wants to endure, let alone dream about. The only thing which kept her going, even though I believe she saw no light at the end of the dark tunnel she’s been trapped in, had been her faith and her theological education. The writing which Ms. Plano uses takes her readers into her life and allows them to feel the pain and everything else she’s gone through without, I feel, holding back any of the horrendous details.
For allowing us to feel her pain, I see no reason I shouldn’t give this book 5 STARS.

Although the KINDLE Edition has been offered for FREE when I went to download it, the KINDLE App for PC had not been offered as one of the devices; but I was able to read it on my kind neighbor’s KINDLE device.
This is the second book in the author’s Leanjumpstart Series I’ve had the pleasure of reading/reviewing, and the timing of its release couldn’t have come at a better time as I’d recently reviewed her book “Clean Eating Miracle: 52 Chef Habits;” a plan my OH and I are beginning to follow.
We’ve all got all kinds of habits; some good, some bad, and those we don’t actually realize we have or are doing in our daily lives; which includes me.
To fully appreciate this book to its utmost you need to read each quote the author has selected for each picture separately, close your eyes and then meditate briefly on the words you’ve just read. The carefully selected quotes are quite vivid and almost awe inspiring in communicating its message.
I would advise anyone purchasing a KINDLE Edition of this book to view the pages of this book two at a time to fully capture the beauty of the picture the author has selected for each habit.
For allowing her readers to journey within themselves to ponder over the habits they might be guilty of having [be honest with yourselves] and hopefully arrived at some resolution regarding them, I’m giving this book 5 STARS.

When I saw this book mentioned in an email I’d recently received and being a cat lover with my dear OH [we’ve got two], I couldn’t help but download it immediately to my PC, and with it being FREE came has a pleasant bonus.
I feel this is a prefect book for all children between the ages of 5 and 8, the girls as well as the boys, especially if they already have a cat as a pet. As these young readers read about the adventures of “Chips” aka “Stupid,” they’ll inevitably begin to think about the different things their own cat has gotten himself/herself involved with, increasing their interest in the rest of the book.
The author and his wife’s decision to use the cat’s POV to tell his story in own words as he views his world and his human owners, although it actually written by someone else [perhaps a dog - - :-)] adds value to the book’s adorability factor.
Mr. Border gives his readers an unexpected bonus at the end of this story, an excerpt from his “The Little Green Man in the Red Apple Tree.”
For giving me and the other readers of this book the opportunity to see how our own cats might be viewing their world and us, I’m giving this book 5 STARS !!!

Being a Book Reviewer is not really easy as it appears to be as a considerable of effort goes into writing each review. Regardless of whether I’ve bought the book [cost not coming into play] or have won it in a giveaway, if I can’t give a rating of at least THREE STARS, I don’t post a review.
I had anticipated to get more from the book than had been realized when I got to the last page. What ruined the book’s storyline the most for me has been the age difference between the protagonist Lily, age thirteen; and the guy she got smitten by, aged seventeen. Come on now, she hasn’t even had her Sweet Sixteen birthday, the age for most girls where an interest in boys takes off. Lily is far too naïve to truly understand what love is all about and for this to happen so quickly between these two individuals. Perhaps being my age, I’m too old-fashioned to “appreciate” all this.
What makes all this even worse is that sexual relations with a prepubescent child, which I believe is what we have in the pages of this book, is generically called child sexual abuse or molestation, and is typically treated as a more serious crime. Given this, I feel a classification for this book as being one for young adults [YA] is definitely out of line, as is a classification of new adults [NA].
Don’t get me wrong; the book itself has a wonderful paranormal, page-turning storyline and had the ages been 17 and 21, the NA classification might be more appropriate for the readers it would attract.
Be advised the author has used British English in the writing this book, so the spelling and word usage might seem strange to those not familiar with it.
With the current ages of the two main characters in place, the dialogue being used, and the incorrect identification of the non-human characters in the book; the best I can give this book is 3 STARS.

I found “Conchita Eyes” by Allen Davies to be a quick enjoyable romance novella which surprisingly has been written by a male unafraid of using his own name.
The basic storyline is one we’re read before of a guy returning home after being away for years in search of a past he can’t really remember and trying to find something that has eluded him as well, something which we call love. The road Wayne Masters has to travel is not a smooth one; it is life with all of its ups and downs and I felt satisfied with the story’s outcome.
The inclusion of pictures, something which can be found in the early readers in children’s books, I feel aids in formulating the mental image of what this author seems to want his readers to have.
With all things considered, I’m happy to give this novella 4 STARS.
