Blogtour Review: Rekindled Dreams – Linda Carroll-Bradd

Blogtour Review: Rekindled Dreams – Linda Carroll-Bradd

*I received a free ARC of Rekindled Dreams from Entranced Publishing in exchange of an honest review* Welcome to my stop on the Rekindled Dreams blog tour. Rekindled Dreams is a quick read with both some humorous and some intense moments. It also has some things happening that could very well have been omitted in my opinion, as some scenes really did nothing to move the plot or the story forward. I did get a little frustrated with for example the things that happened between Vena and the Marshall, because it didn’t have anything to do with the overall story-arc, nor did it help me understand Vena. While I did quite enjoy Rekindled Dreams, I also found myself thinking that […]

Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

*I received a free ARC of Getting Rowdy from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Getting Rowdy is a sinfully delicious romantic mystery/suspense that I devoured in one day! Avery is a really good female character and Rowdy is smoking hot, kind of a womanizer but so protective of the people he cares about it’s impossible not to love him. At the beginning, I really didn’t think there was going to be much of a future for Avery and Rowdy, because they are so different. For Rowdy, a good night means trying to bed Avery, and when she refuses, he finds a replacement – for one night only. For Avery, a good night means having enough work, […]

Review: Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3) – Katie McGarry

Review: Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3) – Katie McGarry

*I received a free ARC of Crash Into You from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* If you thought Isaiah was the best bad-boy out there in Pushing the Limits, you’ll adore him in Crash Into You! Of course, bad boy is relative, it has to do with the way people see him more than anything else! Rachel doesn’t really care all that much about appearances, though, especially because it seems like that is the only thing that matters for her family. And her four brothers aren’t really any better than her parents when it comes to that. This might become a very gushing review, because I was so excited when I got an e-mail telling […]

Review: Targeted (Deadly Ops #1) – Katie Reus

Review: Targeted (Deadly Ops #1) – Katie Reus

*I received a free ARC of Targeted from Penguin Group Berkley via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Targeted is an extremely fast-paced romantic thriller, with awesome characters, an exciting plot and some very hot and steamy scenes as well. Sophie and Jack has a lot of things working against them, especially that little detail from Jack’s past, the one where his name wasn’t Jack, and he was Sophie’s first boyfriend. And the only boy she’d ever loved. When Jack is sent to Miami to find out more about a medical company that seems to be involved with drug and arms trafficking, he doesn’t want to go at first, because he feels that seeing Sophie again is the biggest […]

Review: Life in Outer Space – Melissa Keil

Review: Life in Outer Space – Melissa Keil

*I received a free ARC of Life in Outer space from Peachtree Publishers via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Life in Outer Space is a hilarious story about Sam and his nerdy, outcast friends, and their life in highschool. The jocks never miss an opportunity to torment Sam, but Mike, Adrian and Allison always have his back. He’s contemplating moving fast-forward through his life until his forties because everything sucks so much. The popular kids picking at him in school is one thing, but coming home to the big wall of silence between his parents, and his mom’s tears makes it difficult for him to actually be home, too. A self-professed movie-geek, straight A student and great friend, […]

Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: The Holdout – Laurel Osterkamp

*I received a free ARC of The Holdout from IFB Blog Tours in exchange of an honest review* Welcome to my stop on The Holdout Blogtour! I’m sharing a review and some of my favorite quotes, and let me just start by letting you know I really enjoyed this story, even if I’m not a huge fan of reality TV, it was nice to kind of see the other side of what happens and how people can get really caught up in things when they are far away from home, living with strangers and being filmed at all times. The readers meet and get to know Robin quite well, and the story switches from flash-backs from her time on the […]

Review: The Next Best Thing – Kristan Higgins

Review: The Next Best Thing – Kristan Higgins

*I received a free ARC of The Next Best Thing from Harlequin HQN via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Next Best Thing is the story about Lucy, the young widow and Ethan, her brother-in-law. Yeah, that right there is a little weird to me, but not so much that I couldn’t overlook it. Ethan is a very decent character, and Lucy has been a widow for a long time. Also, she got to know Ethan before she met Jimmy. There were some other things I had trouble with, though, so I didn’t enjoy The Next Best Thing as much as I thought I would when I read the blurb and requested the ARC. In some ways, it […]

Review: Friends to Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) – Christi Barth

Review: Friends to Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) – Christi Barth

*I received a free eARC of Friends to Lovers from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Friends to Lovers is the kind of love story I love to read, two people are best friends, hang out with each other all the time, get along, have the same interests and then… there is more feelings than they thought they had for each other. Gib and Daphne have been friends for several years, and for all that time, Daphne has hidden her true feelings for Gib, because he’s truly not the kind of guy who’d ever have a real relationship with a woman. He’s more the love them and leave them kind of man, and that’s OK since […]
