Tangling with the CEO – Annie Seaton

Tangling with the CEO – Annie Seaton

*I received a free ARC of Tangling with the CEO from Entagled Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Tangling with the CEO is a fun, quick read full of romance and some situations that are pretty unreal. From the first time Ana and Blake meet again, their chemistry is palpable, and it’s obvious that they have unfinished business. However, instead of telling Blake about her business proposition, Ana gets stuck helping Blake care for his five nieces and nephews for the weekend, while Blake tells her he’s upset because a business appointment fell through. Filled with both chemistry and fun moments, Tangling with the CEO is also a truly tangled story! Blake and Ana both have their […]

Review: The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard #3) – Scott Lynch

Review: The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard #3) – Scott Lynch

*I received a free ARC of The Republic of Thieves from Del Rey via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Republic of Thieves is the third book in the Gentleman Bastard series, but the first one I read. If I missed anything because I started with the third book, I truly didn’t notice it! The characters are so well done, and I will certainly check out the prior books in this series just to be able to learn more about this world that is set in another time, and possibly in another world as well. There are alchemists and magi, as well as normal people. Then, we also have the amazing Gentlemen Bastards, who have been raised to […]

Review: Waterfell (The Aquarathi #1) – Amalie Howard

Review: Waterfell (The Aquarathi #1) – Amalie Howard

*I received a free ARC of Waterfell from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Waterfell is a strange story about Nerissa, her handlers and her best friend. Nerissa is trying her best to fit in at a human school, blending in is almost second nature. Until she realizes she is closer to her coming of age than she thought, and she has some serious decisions to make. Her decisions aren’t only for her own future, but that of her whole people – if you can call them that. Nerissa is a sea-creature from a place deep in the sea – Waterfell – and she has no trouble acting like a self-absorbed human teenager most of the […]

Blogtour Review: Stripped Clean – Ellis Carrington

Blogtour Review: Stripped Clean – Ellis Carrington

*I received a free ARC of Stripped Clean from Enchantress of Books Blogtour in exchange of an honest review* Welcome to my stop on the Stripped Clean blogtour. This is yet another book for which I participated in the cover reveal, and I just had to sign up for the blogtour because the blurb was so awesome! The story follows Greg, who has been openly gay for quite a while, but he is still trying to find his soul-mate. And when he meets the bar’s new janitor, Carlos his first reaction is so strong he has no idea what hit him! Unfortunately for Greg, Carlos is not only married, though, he is married to a woman. So since Greg has […]

Review: These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) – Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) – Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

*I received a free ARC of These Broken Stars from Disney Hyperion via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* These Broken Stars is a beautifully written young adult novel set in a more or less distant future, when space travel is quite common, and several planets are colonized, but there is still war and those who hold power want to hold on to that. Many things seem very different from the way we live now, but at the core, human beings are still the same, with their hopes and dreams. They still love and hate, fear and show courage. The differences are in the science and the way people can travel. Tarver is on the Icarus only because he […]

Review: Irresistible Magic (Crescent City Fae #2) – Deanna Chase

Review: Irresistible Magic (Crescent City Fae #2) – Deanna Chase

*I received a free ARC of Irresistible Magic from Bayou Moon Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Irresistible Magic takes up just where Influential Magic ended. Wil still has a lot on her plate, and hooking up with Tal is her main concern, even if there is a lot of other things happening as well. Wil is stalked by an unknown human, and almost kidnapped while she’s shopping for a dress for her hot date. Phoebe is shopping with her, so luckily, they are able to neutralize the would-be-kidnapper, but Wil realizes that her date will not go as planned. Especially because her ex, David, has also showed up to let her know his vampire-father has summoned […]

Review: Backward Glass – David Lomax

Review: Backward Glass – David Lomax

*I received a free ARC of Backward Glass from Flux via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Backward Glass is a brilliant YA time travel novel, and it really made my day! The main character, Kenny, is pretty careful, but his travels to the past (and sometimes to the future) take him on such a wild adventure I was almost out of breath at times. I love reading about time travel, and I thought it was very well done in Backward Glass. Like, you can’t change what has happened, but you can still be the captain of your own life – that is very important to me on both counts. The characters in Backward Glass are all very well […]

Review: Playing Dirty (Stargazer #2) – Jennifer Echols

Review: Playing Dirty (Stargazer #2) – Jennifer Echols

*I received a free ARC of Playing Dirty from Pocket Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* Playing Dirty is a truly fun book to read! I couldn’t put it down and stayed up until 3 am so I could learn everything about Sarah, Quintin and the others. Intricate relationships, country stars who aren’t exactly the way the portray themselves to the public. The characters are fun and realistic, the storyline is captivating, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself all the way. I thought the band members were very clever in Playing Dirty, because that’s exactly what they are doing! And Sarah is playing dirty as well. Everybody wants to look out for themselves in the beginning, and it […]

Review: Gone Wild – Ever Cormick

Review: Gone Wild – Ever Cormick

*I received a free ARC of Gone Wild from Barefoot Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Gone Wild has a lot more to do with living with nature than it has to do with a girl who kind of acts more wild than usual – despite the cover that shows a lot of skin and wet white clothes… The story is not bad, but I didn’t really get completely drawn into it, either. I can’t really put my finger on why, though, because even if Ina and Adam were both good characters they didn’t make me need to continue reading. Ina goes to a secluded mountain cottage to find herself and figure out what to do with […]

Review: Introductions (The Academy #1) – C. L Stone

Review: Introductions (The Academy #1) – C. L Stone

*I received a free ARC of Introductions from Arcato Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Introductions is really an introduction to this world and the characters that are a part of it. Sang is a young girl who has never had any friends before, but in her new neighborhood, she finds herself with not only one, but seven new friends. Her new friends are all boys, and she knows she has to keep her mother in the dark, if no there will be harsh consequences to pay for Sang. She also has nightmares every night, and they are pretty weird. In the beginning of Introductions, each chapter introduces both Sang and the reader to one of the […]
