Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so.

Loving Liberty by Belinda Boring

Liberty Montgomery is many things:

A dutiful daughter.

Perfect wife-in-training.

Easy to manipulate.


But secretly she wants more.

For years, Liberty has dreamed of a life filled with opportunities—a life where
she makes the decisions, living by her own rules. Unfortunately, her parents
have other plans for her, ones that involve her submission and total obedience.
Every attempt to break free from their control is met with threats, leaving her
feeling trapped. Just when all seems hopeless, Liberty meets Oliver Nichols.
With just two words, be brave, he stirs up her secret longings for more . . .
friendship, fun, and independence. He almost has her believing her dreams are
possible. However, taking a stand can be terrifying when you've spent your
entire life pleasing others.

Are some chances worth taking? What would she risk for freedom?

Love Realized by Melanie Codina

Jake and Gillian have been friends since high school. As friends, they
have supported each other through all the typical life changing events such as
marriages, births, divorces and even death. Gillian couldn’t be more thankful
for the bond she shares with Jake than she is when all the shameful secrets of
her marriage appear front and center, demanding attention. The emotional
support she has so freely given to her friend over the years is returned in
full force as she nurses the wounds of her failed marriage. But when she starts
to notice there might be more to her feelings than just friendship….is she
willing to risk what they already have, for what might be???

For Jake, it has always been Gillian. If only she knew she has owned his heart
since the day he met her. After watching her fall in love with one of his best
friends, he accepted his fate of being one of her closest friends and locked up
the deeper emotions he felt for her. So when he watches her marriage fall apart
before his very eyes, he knew she would turn to him for support. What he wasn’t
prepared for was the return of those emotions he had long ago locked away. It
didn’t take long for him to figure out that this was his chance and he wasn’t
about to let her slip through his fingers again. He only needed to make her
realize, his love for her was real.

A Fighter's Desire by L.P. Dover

Two is always better than one.

What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one,
but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures
they offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next

It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters
and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they
were in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn't pass their test on
the first night, then you didn't proceed to the next round. They loved a good
fight, and that's what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.

Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a
proposition, and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them ... or so
she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to
first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was
a proposition she couldn't refuse, but she knew it wouldn't be easy to win.
However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.

Blissful Surrender by B.J. Harvey

This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving
for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman
dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha
Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong
enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her

**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t
seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to
read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided when the one
woman strong enough to disarm him threatens his resolve not to let his past
dictate his future.**

Like the other books in the Bliss series, this book can be read as a stand
alone. There are common characters in the books but it is not necessary to read
the first two books in the series to read this one.

The Problem With Crazy
by Lauren K. McKellar

The problem with crazy is that crazy, by itself, has no context. It can
be good crazy, bad crazy ... or crazy crazy—like it was when my ex-boyfriend
sung about me on the radio.

Eighteen-year-old Kate couldn’t be more excited about finishing high school and
spending the summer on tour with her boyfriend’s band. Her dad showing up drunk
at graduation, however, is not exactly kicking things off on the right foot—and
that’s before she finds out about his mystery illness, certain to end in

A mystery illness that she could inherit. 

Kate has to convince everyone around her that her father is sick, not crazy.
But who will be harder to convince? Her friends? Or herself?

The Problem With Crazy is a story about love and life; about overcoming
obstacles, choosing to trust, and learning how to make the choices that will
change your life forever.

Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out
for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school
sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I
made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my
soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.
