Review: Always Been Mine by Victoria Page

Blurb Beatrice Porter swore she would never fall in love with a man like her father. For years she watched her mother self-destruct in bitterness, married to someone who only lived for his job. Gabriel Sullivan was such a man—a Navy SEAL, a man who put duty and country above all else. Yet falling in love with him was inevitable.

Welcome to my new home!

About two years ago, I started my first blog, Ever After Romance Book Blog. It was an extension of my passion for reading. I was so excited to be blogging about books that I love and loathe, and getting ARCs that I totally over-extended myself. I got heavily involved with the blog tour circuit, and I signed up for every blog tour, cover reveal, release day blitz I could find. It was exhausting. Reading and reviewing became a chore. Worst of all, my blog doesn’t look like the blog that I had envisioned when I first started. Last November, I decided to formally close that blog and start fresh. Hence, The Racy Lit Reader is born. This time, I won’t be doing much promo tours. If I do, it will only be because I truly loved the book and want to share my “find” with others. I’ve also decided to include some opinion […]
