I love a good book! Young Adult, New Adult, Adult and nearly any genre. If it’s well-written, I’ll read it. And, I love to talk about what I’ve written.


I have a WIP–a new adult dystopian novel. I’m also exploring short fiction.

Find my reviews here, on Wordpress, on Tumblr, on Facebook (The Word Smithe), Goodreads.com, and Amazon.


If you’re an author and you’d like me to review your book, just drop me a line. I’ll be happy to read an ARC. I always give an honest review. And, even if I didn’t particularly go crazy for your story, I will stay positive. I believe something redeeming can be found in nearly every book.

Under the Mask

Beautifully Masked (Beautifully Series Book 3) - A.M. Guilliams

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

For Mature Readers: 18+


Beautifully Masked was a beautiful romantic suspense story about secrets and the damage they can cause.


The story line was intriguing and the characters well-developed. Jeremiah, my new book boyfriend, was the total package—good looks, great manners, and a smooth way with a special woman. He was unrelenting in his pursuit which I loved.


I admired Sophia. She had great strength and was intelligent. I loved the fact she wanted to protect those around her from her less than admirable history. Unfortunately, our past has a way of catching up with us when we least expect it.


This was the second story I’ve read where family members masqueraded as villains. I loved Guilliams quote about family:

“Blood didn’t make someone family. A life worth living is a life worth fighting for. Everyone was brought into your life for a reason.”


I enjoyed Sophia and Jeremiah’s story. Ms. Guilliams, if you’re reading, please write more. I need to know where their story goes!
