Fall Guy Review


Fall GuyFall Guy by Liz Reinhardt


This book was superb! The romance between Evan and Winchester is so sweet, steamy, and at times aggravating. I love the duel POV's.. guy/girl that Liz is so great at. I love Winchester! Fall Guy is very well written and I couldn't get enough of the steamy romance scenes!! The book had several tidbits of humor too!

They first cross paths at a court hearing.. Evan accidentally torched her ex's property and Winch had public intoxication charges. There was an instant attraction, until Winch spoke. He is full of pure cockiness and self control. Evan full of pride and a raging temper. They couldn't be more opposite, yet the attraction they feel for one another is too strong.

Evan tries to fit into his life, but everything about Winchester Youngblood is 'Complicated.' Evan has to decide whether she can compromise with his crazy family life. Promises are made and hearts are broken in this gripping New Adult Romance. I definitely recommend it!


I loved this book!

Ten Things You'll Learn From Whispers at Moonrise

Ten Things You’ll Learn from Whispers at Moonrise

1. Kicking your boyfriend’s father’s butt might not be good for the relationship.

2. Sometimes following your heart means breaking some rules.

3. Getting trapped in a grave with three dead girls is not a walk in the park.

4. Your parents breaking up sucks. Your mom having a boyfriend, and kissing him in front of you, sucks BIG TIME.

On Dublin Street-Review

On Dublin StreetOn Dublin Street by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Um.. WOW!! *blushes*

I am on a huge contemporary adult (or NA) kick lately, and this book is one of the hottest I've read! Braden Carmichael can caveman me anytime he wants! I read this book straight through, a solid 5 hour was blocked off for Dublin Street. I've heard a lot of hype over this book, and it was well deserved.

I love it when the main character is flawed, it makes the story seem so real. This book has a lot of elements going on.. for one, the emotions you get from it is amazing.. one minute hot an bothered, the next pissed, then finally kicked in the stomach. It also seems so real, the characters are all relatable and likable! A must read (18+) and one of my faves for the year!

Jocelyn Butler has made a life for herself, keeping people at arms length and ready to run if shit gets deep. Her family died when she was a teen, and Joss' way of coping was to be emotionally distant. But all of that was about to change when she struck a deal with Braden, an attractive, prominent business man, with a body to kill. Would she crack and let him in, or do what she does best and run?

Gone Girl Review

Gone GirlGone Girl by Gillian Flynn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Wow.. this book was effed up! (in a good way of course) It's well written and even more suspenseful than Flynn's other novels. I found myself re-reading a lot of the book, because my eyes were flying ahead to see what was going on. I am glad to say I finished the book, for two reasons.. 1. my nerves can rest, and 2. I can rest (I stayed up all night reading!)

I've thought a lot about the summary for this book, and it's hard to summarize without giving too much away. I want you to be as shocked as I was.. so here's a succinct review.

On the day of their anniversary, Nick comes home to find that his wife is missing and worse yet it looks like there had been a struggle. The investigation points to Nick, while he pleas incense.. he knows deep down that Amy is alive. Secrets are revealed, lies are told. People are crazy... literally, and no one is ever who they seem.

The Feed-Review

The FeedThe Feed by C.M. Stunich

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was the first Mer/Siren book I've read, and I very much loved it! I'm a big fan of Stunich's writing, it is so relaxed and not pushed. She has a way of making you love characters you normally wouldn't for example: a tattooed-hurst driving-social outcast and flesh-eating siren. I loved the plot and the character interactions. There were several 'lol' moments and definitely some very swoony moments as well!

Natalie is sent to shore with expectations of going ashore, luring a male, getting him to impregnate her, and then literally devouring him. The last thing she expected, was to meet Seth. He was covered with mystical tattoos and (almost) resistant to her lure. Seven days to fall for Seth. She had seven days to forge her destiny.

Speechless-Review

SpeechlessSpeechless by Hannah Harrington

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


4.5 stars This book was fantastical! There were so many lessons to learn (even if you are not a YA!) I loved every message this book had, and the romance aspect was endearing. I wish I had a book like this to read when I were in High School. I loved the contemporary writing, I felt as though a teenager actually wrote it.

Chelsea is the second most popular girls in school, and she was always running her mouth. But that was soon put to a stop when she let something slip that not only put someone in the hospital, but ruined her reputation. Her remedy for this was to take a vow of silence.

Chelsea was all alone, and on top of that she was being harassed by her old friends. Chelsea makes new friends, and learns that her old life was fake. Chelsea works on straightening out her life and working on gaining forgiveness for the wrongs she committed, and she made some new friends along the way.

This book reminded me that, words can hurt.. they could kill. Live life for yourself, don't try to impress others. If they can't appreciate you for you, then it's not worth your time.. there are others that will cherish you.

Love Unrehearsed-Review

Love Unrehearsed (Love, #2)Love Unrehearsed by Tina Reber

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I love the Love series, and Ryan!! He is so sweet, loving, and sincere! This had such a happy ending too. I felt that some of the getting to know you love was missing, and some of the heartache that made me love Love Unscripted, HOWEVER... Reber filled the book with lots of hawt and steamy scenes (which totally made up for the loss!!) This book is full of sweet romance and hot guys.

Taryn and Ryan are learning to cope with the celebrity life. It seems like everyone is against them. Though, the more life tries to pull them apart, the stronger their love gets. The toll of paparazzi and touring circuits is hard on everyone that surrounds them, causing a few jail trips, lost jobs, break-ups, and possibly Ryan and Taryn's sanity. Secrets are revealed, easing the nightmares that Taryn is having.

I really enjoyed this book, and would definitely recommend it!

Origin Review

OriginOrigin by Jessica Khoury

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Very original story line and a very exhilarating read. I thoroughly enjoyed Origin, the romance aspect was touching and the setting was different. I work in the science industry, so I could relate to a lot of the book. The story was engrossing too, once I got started reading, I couldn't put it down! The ending was tragic yet perfect.

Pia.. Perfect Pia. Born and raised in a Laboratory by scientists, she was the perfect specimen, immortal, genius, indestructible. The night of her 17th birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the fence of little Cam, her cage the compound she lives in. Curiosity gets the best of her and she slips through the hole to get a glimpse of the Amazon. She literally runs into Eio, a savage boy from a neighboring village.

Perfect Pia's scientist side meets Wild Pia's emotional side and the battle ensues. She has to figure out where she belongs in the mortal world and who has her best interests in heart.

Waiting on Wednesday-(4)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Requiem by Lauren Oliver Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancĂ©e of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

I love this series and the end of Pandemonium left me shocked and in tears! What are you waiting for?

Inbetween Review

Inbetween (Kissed by Death, #1)Inbetween by Tara A. Fuller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This story was so sweet and swoony at the same time.. what more can you ask for? This story was quite original. I've heard of reapers, but ones that take you to the Inbetween, a place that your soul waits to see if it can be reincarnated. If not, your a shadow that feeds on the souls of others.

Emma survived a car crash that killed her father. She is barely on the brink of sanity. She is plagued with nightmares and is almost killed a number of times since then. Finn, the reaper that should have taken her soul during the car accident. He risks his life.. er soul to make sure Emma is safe, even if that means being sent to Hell. The evil that trails Emma is there because of Finn.. because of his love for her.

Witch Review

Witch (Devil's Roses #4)Witch by Tara Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


What can I say.. I have always been a big fan of Tara's writing and the 4th installment of The Devil's Roses didn't disappoint.. it was EPIC! I laughed, and cried.. but they were definitely tears of joy. (Don't wanna spoil it and tell you, but I was so happy at one part in this book I was jumping up and down while reading.)

I laugh at myself, though when writing a review for this series, because there's always so much that's going on.. there's never a dull moment. So I am going to make this review as short and sweet as possible.

Ophelia's POV: Ophelia is a new character to this series. She is a witch, though didn't really know it until one day she explodes the glass out of her classroom windows. If she thought that was strange, imagine Lucas (sexy werewolf) and Sam (Half siren/half fallen angel) arrive at her doorstep to take her away to safety... to the Roses. Then if things couldn't get any worse, she is told about a prophecy that she will have to kill her father and brother in order to restore the earth's safety.

Sam's POV: He finally has his mate Hannah, they were bound to each other early on in life. But when Hannah was sent to find out more about her heritage, being a half-siren as well. Sam finds her in a precarious position and they have it out. Sam decided to undo the bond he had with Hannah, leaving him emotionless.. empty.

All of the Roses have to work together to fix Sam and try to save the world!


Project ELE Review

Project ELEProject ELE by Rebecca Gober

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I'd say it's more like 3.5 stars. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book started out very dry for me. I skimmed through a lot of the first few chapters. It started picking up about the 40% mark. That half of the book was amazing and very intriguing. The book ended on a HUGE cliffhanger. The romantic aspect was very sweet! The powers and how they came about were pretty original, and the climax towards the end was epic. All-in-all a decent quick read!

Plot: Dystopian setting, a virus runs rampant. The government is heating up the earth in order to kill off the virus. In order to survive, people must live in government controlled shelters, but you must pass a physical in order to be admitted. Willow and her father are forced to separate from her mother and brother because he didn't pass the physical.

Shortly after entering the facility, Willow gets put to work and makes new friends. She starts developing a relationship with her boss Alec. There's not much to do at the facility, so Willow, Alec and her other friends go exploring and discover a mystical cave. It becomes more mystical when the group develops strange new powers. But if they are discovered, they wont make it out of the facility alive.

Lengths Review

LengthsLengths by Steph Campbell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Wow, what an incredible book!! I loved it (and Deo)! This is a Contemporary, New Adult book, and was told from two POV's. The on/off relationship between Deo and Whit was enough to cause a permanent heart arrhythmia. My emotions were all over the place while reading this book! I was excited, pissed, happy, sad, and everything in between.

Deo's mother and grandfather were an absolute RIOT! Especially his mother's euphemisms for sex.. like threading the needle. His grandfather was snarky and sarcastic.

Deo: Surfer, beach bum, jobless, unmotivated. Sounds unappealing huh? But he was far from that. I loved him. He was so sweet, sexy, and very very charming. Super Swoonworthy!!!

Whit: I didn't connect with her as much as I would've liked, but understood why she felt/did what she did. She tried hard to be independent, but was constantly running away from her problems.

The story: They meet in a tattoo shop on Deo's birthday. The tattoo was a gift from Deo's hippie mother. Whilst trying to decide upon a tattoo, Whit offers him one that she had designed. He decided to get it. They soon fall into a just friends relationship, then into a friends with benefits relationship. The problem, Deo wants more and Whit is terrified to make that leap, feeling that she would lose all of the control she had worked so hard to build. Deo pushes too hard and has to get the one person.. the one thing that ever motivated him back.

If you liked Beautiful Disaster or Love Unscripted, you'd like this book. There is a bit more adult language in it, but that didn't bother me.

This weeks swoon is from Half-blood (Covenant Series) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I loved this book and the relationship between Alex and Aiden is super swoony!

Aiden's gaze settled on me, and the air left my lungs. Passion slammed into me, hard and hot. The look on his face-in his eyes-sent shivers through me. Without saying a word, he cupped my face and brought his lips to mine. The kiss took whatever air I had left in me. It was heady and deep, heart-stopping. I never wanted it to end, but it did. Aiden pulled back, his fingers slowly trailing away from my cheeks."

Pretty Hot huh? Who were you swooning over this week?

Waiting on Wednesday-(3)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I just finished reading Jennifer L. Armentrout's Covenant series. I am so ready to see what happens to Alex and Aiden in the next installment!!


Goodreads Blurb:

"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time. "

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden.

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...
