My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a wealth of information at your fingertips. There are over 100 jobs listed, and for each section, there’s information about the job itself, required experience, hyperlinks, and free courses.

When you’re reading this book, it is going to get the wheels turning in your head about job opportunities. I found myself saying “Oh, I could do that” many times while reading this book. With so many professions and jobs listed, there is no way to remember everything. I actually read the book twice before writing this review because of opportunities that peaked my interest.

Virtual customer service agent, chat agent (for those who prefer not to talk to customers over the phone), and virtual lawyer are just a few of the jobs mentioned in the book. Trust me, there are many more! The hobbies list is next in the book and features information about photography, even selling recipes for those who love to cook.

I’d highly recommend this book to anyone. It is a great resource that you can always refer back to.

The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden Book Review

The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
Note: This post contains affiliate links, which mean I will receive a tiny commission for purchases made through my link.

 

Book Description:

For Kayden, suffering in silence was the only way to survive. If he was lucky, he could keep his head down, do as he was told, and make it through the day. But one night it seemed like his luck — and his life — might finally end… until an angel named Callie appeared just in time to rescue him.

Callie has never believed in luck. Not since her twelfth birthday when everything was taken from her. After the worst was over, she locked up her feelings and vowed never to tell anyone what happened. Now, six years later, she continues to struggle with the painful secret that threatens to consume her.

When fate lands Kayden and Callie at the same college, Kayden is determined to get to know the beautiful girl who changed his destiny. Quiet and reserved, Callie still fears letting anyone else into her world. But Kayden is certain that Callie has come back into his life for a reason. And the more he tries to be a part of her life, the more he realizes that, this time, it’s Callie who needs to be saved…

 

My Thoughts:

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it will not be my last. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. It touches on topics such as physical and sexual abuse and how it affects the victims long after the abuse takes place. Kayden Owens is the football star of his high school and is physically abused by his father while Callie Lawrence is suffering with the secret of being rape by her brother’s best friend when she was 12 years old.

The story starts out with Callie’s mother sending her into the Owens’ household to get her brother. Callie witnesses Kayden’s dad call him “a fuckup” and “a fucking disappointment” and physically abuses him by “kicking him in the stomach” and “in the face.” To stop the attack, Callie makes up an excuse that someone was looking for him in the kitchen to get him to stop attacking Kayden and it works.

Their paths cross again when they run into each other in college over the summer. Kayden and go out to eat at a restaurant with their friends Luke and Seth and their relationship grows from there. I want to point out that this is a slow building romance story and there is a cliffhanger at the end.  

There were a few things I didn’t like in the book. With Callie’s situation surrounding the rape, I feel as if her parents should’ve asked more questions and really got to the bottom of what was going on with their daughter. “…I don’t tell my mom, because it will crush her. She’s such a happy person there’s no use cursing her with dark thoughts.” She wants to protect her mom because she doesn’t think she can handle the truth about what happened to her. Also, I really wish she would’ve told her regardless instead of letting that secret fester.

With Kayden’s situation, he has 2 older brothers who knew what was going on in the household, and they were abused too. They shouldn’t have just left him in the home knowing the physical pain their father was going to inflict upon him. “…It’s hard not to stare at the scars that crisscross along his stomach and chest.”

I do not want to give too much of the story away. Overall, this is a good read and this book will make you go through a range of emotions from sad to angry to happy and back again.

Redemption of the Heart Book Review

Redemption of the Heart by Moni Boyce

Note: This post contains affiliate links, which mean I will receive a tiny commission for purchases made through my link.

 

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story introduces us to Gemma, a woman who has been in foster care, has no family, and is abused by her husband, Jason. He comes home from work while she’s vacuuming and wants to go to the bar. She changed clothing “four times” until she “met Jason’s approval.” He made her drink cocktails and once they’d gotten home, he raped her. Once he’d fallen asleep, she grabbed what she could and got out of the house. Her goal was to start over in a new town away from him. She had some alcohol in her system but “she didn’t think she was that impaired.” She and another vehicle crashed into each other.
The driver of the other vehicle died and Gemma was sent to prison. While in prison, Jason served her divorce papers. After she is released, she is sent to a halfway house and given a job as a waitress at Alex Chambers restaurant.

Even though his wife has been deceased for several years, he still wears his wedding band. Instead of dating, he immerses himself into his work at his restaurant. Alex’s sister, Rachel takes to Gemma and can tell that her brother and Gemma both like each other. Rachel has tried in the past to convince her brother to go out on a date but he doesn’t listen to her. Slowly but surely he and Gemma start falling for each other, but each is apprehensive because they don’t want to get hurt.

This story is very touching and heartfelt. At the start of this book, I was rooting for Gemma to leave her abusive husband. I did not like Jason one bit. No man or woman should have to suffer abuse from a spouse. Abuse does not equal love. While I do not condone drinking and driving, Gemma had extenuating circumstances. It is hard to imagine what someone would do in a situation like that. I felt as if she had reached her breaking point, and she just wanted to get away from him. When she starts working at Alex’s restaurant, they begin falling for each other. I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to give away too much of the story.

If you love a good romance story, I’d highly recommend this book to you.

Discussion

Lately, I have found myself just having time to post my albeit not very long book reviews, I don’t think I have posted anything but a book review and the occasional author interview for quite a while. This is mainly due to time restrictions and I’m really having a great time reading so many awesome books that’s just mainly what I have wanted to focus on.

However at the start of the year while I was still having the inspiration to be extremely organized I sat down and wrote myself a whole lot of things I did want to include for the year. So instead of letting them sit in my draft pile not to be touched for the foreseeable future, I have decided to compile them into a post in case anyone else liked the idea. I find with discussion posts especially everyone has such a different take or…
