Together, We Can END IT!

Just imagine you have $90 in your hand right now.  What could you buy with that money?  A new outfit?  Four books?  Your phone bill?  The list goes on and on.  Now imagine a person being sold for that amount of money.  Sad, right?  I bet you are thinking: Alexandrea, how on Earth could a human being only be worth $90?  Well, statically, that is the average cost for a person bought and sold in human trafficking rings.  And this is not just one person: I am talking about 27 million people.  That is 27 million men, women, and children bought and sold like animals.  27 million families missing their loved one who never came home one day.

Brief Encounters by Scarlett Hopper

Eleanor Ivy is not one of those typical cookie-cutter characters.  She is sarcastic, snarky, secretive, and a bit cynical.  Shoot, she has more issues than Cosmopolitan.  And when it comes to the charming hockey star, Jess Parker, she cannot help but feel the walls guarding her heart and her secrets beginning to crack.  Deep down, she knows that she should not be catching feelings for this guy.  After all, how could he possibly fall for a girl with so much baggage?

Reach for the Stars by Kathy Jay

This book is advertised as 'a feel good, uplifting romantic comedy' but what I read seemed to have a lot of romance and very little comedy.  I picked up on more of a dramatic vibe than comedic.  Although the story-line was generally pleasing, I have some concerns.
