HI. AGAIN :)

SO, IM BAACCCK! 🙂 I’m so sorry about the over-a-month absence, because being a junior-about-to-be-senior SUCKS ASS. Sorry about my straightforward words, but seriously. Colleges are draining me. ANWYAYS, my life has become shambles, or that’s what it feels like, and I’ve never been more sad that my blog has basically been taken from me BUT IM BACK. Because I’m totally in love with my rant sessions about hot boys so here I go again 🙂

But just because I haven’t been writing doesn’t mean that I haven’t been reading, so just to make up a bit for my lack of writing, here’s what I’ve been reading!

1. The Rock Chick Series by Kristen Ashley.

I’ve practically memorized this series. I’ve read them THAT many times in the past few weeks.. 😉

fee4e19aa7c8c2799de1f2a58f20eadb

 

1. Rock Chick- The story of India Savage (aka Indy and crazy ass girl) and her childhood crush since 5 years old, Lee Nightingale (aka badass)

2. Rock Chick Rescue- The story of Jet Mcalister, CUTEST BLONDE EVER and barista/strip club waitress, and Eddie Chavez, hot hot hot policeman and macho man.

3. Rock Chick Redemption- Roxanne/Roxie Logan’s, kindest girly ever with some serious boyfriend issues, and Hank Nightingale’s, brother of badass Lee and other hot hot hot policeman story

4. Rock Chick Renegade- The epic story of Juliet Lawler, the most badass girl of this series (Jules, the social worker by day and kinda-street vigilante, Law, by night) and Vance Crowe, also badass and hot and Native American.

5. Rock Chick Revenge- The began-from-childhood-love story of Ava Barlow, transformed beauty with some men issues, and Lucas/Luke Stark, hottie macho badass (are you seeing a pattern here 😉 )

6. Rock Chick Reckoning- The most beautiful musical story of Stella, literal rockstar, and Kai Mason (Mace), badass with a past and some serious demons.

7. Rock Chick Regret- The story of former drug lord’s daughter, Sadie Townsend, and ex-DEA agent and current BADASS, Hector Oh-my-god Chavez (as Sadie says it)

8. Rock Chick Revolution- The final story of the Rock Chicks, and focusing on Ally Nightingale (sister of Lee and Hank and also her own super badass woman) and Lorenzo (Ren) Zano, the potential heir to a crime network.

This series was a definite favorite for me. Kristen Ashley blew me away with her writing. Her innate sense of humor came out in every single on of her stories. The humor was unmistakably well placed and I really loved every moment of each of these guys’ stories. There was something special to each couple, and each had their beautiful moments, and they ALL made me squee, laugh in glee, cry, and everything else that you could ever imagine. My favorite, though, was Rock Chick Regret, though. Something about Sadie and Hector’s story drew me in and IT WAS GREAT. heh.

Ok anyways, this series is totally a must for anyone who loves a good story about badasses kicking ass, saving their girls, and some pretty epic chases around Denver.

Reviews to come soooon! 🙂

 

NEXT!

Totally had A GREAT TIME re-reading the Lux Series by Jennifer Armentrout.

lux series jennifer l armentrout

Re-reading this series completely brought back my love for Daemon and Kat and OMYGOSH OPPOSITION IS COMING OUT IN LIKE 3 DAYS!!!! Sorry. Side-tracked. Anyways, Daemon, Kat, Dee, and everyone else in these books reminded me why I got myself back into Paranormal Romance and what great characters Jennifer Armentrout gifts her audience with. I ABSOLUTELY RE-HATED the cliffhanger at the end of Origin, and UGH why can’t today be August 5th!!! 😦 I love the storyline and plot of this series, and even though I went a little crazy trying to keep up with everything that was going on, it was a ride that I’m seriously addicted to. Here’s to another three days of painful waiting. Cheers! (even though I’m underage lol)

My reviews: Obsidian & Onyx Joint Review

Other coming soon!! 🙂

 

SO THEN!

Because I enjoyed my re-read of the Lux series so much, I went on a Jennifer Armentrout marathon, and read the Covenant series.

covenant-series

AND DANG. I re-visited the days where I was completely on #teamAIDEN and where I was so frustrated with Seth and Alex, and where I was so engrossed in a series that there was NO WAY that I couldn’t go through all five books in one sitting *SIGH* This series is like Vampire Academy meets Percy Jackson. It was the gods (who were GREAT in that they were hilarious but soooo freaking annoying and humane) meets mortals with the extra element of the Hematoi and every other type of being in this brave new world that Armentrout created. I lived every second of this series, and it’s a definite recommendation!!! 🙂

Reviews ALSO coming sooon! 🙂

Synopsis 

Arrive to work at 7:58 A.M. sharp. Check. Count forty-seven steps to cubicle. Check. Arrange pens in their red-blue-black-green-purple order of importance. Check. Apply hand sanitizer before opening email. Double check.
And that’s just the first few minutes of her work day.
Thirty-one-year-old proofreader Bailey Mitchell is a slave to her tics. She inherited Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder from her father, and it’s done nothing but inhibit her love life. She’s run the gamut of boyfriends—none of them willing or able to cope with her condition.
Enter 32-year-old Reece Powell, her new coworker at Beach Elite Marketing Firm. He’s more than willing to cope. He finds her habits cute and quirky . . . for now. Reece wins her over, and life coasts along for them until Bailey experiences a devastating blow. Tragedy exacerbates her OCD, and Reece realizes her tics aren’t so cute and quirky anymore. Just like all the others, he has the choice to leave.
But Reece isn’t like all the others.

Excerpt

Noah dropped me home sometime around nine. I’d stayed for dinner, thought I’d sobered up sufficiently to drive, but was told to keep my car right where it was—on the curb in front of Erica’s house. She’d drive it over tomorrow.
I live in a cul-de-sac in an old neighborhood filled with one-story brick homes. They’re small—no bigger than 1500 square feet—but the perfect size for a single woman tired of paying rent. I bought my house two years ago. I’d started saving for a down payment eight years before that. I thought my mother would be so proud of me for purchasing my first home—on my own—but she was more concerned about the people to fill it.
“Just me, Mom,” I had said during my housewarming party. It included my dad, younger sister, some coworkers, a few friends from college, and Erica’s crew.
“Not even a roommate, Bailey? At least get a roommate. I mean, what’s the point of two bedrooms if it’s just you?”
“Office space,” I replied.
“Office space for what? What do you need an office for? Do you take work home with you? Do they make you work nights and weekends at that place? Honey, let’s talk about the sales job. Remember that sales job I told you about?”
“Mom, I’d be working more in sales. Do you understand? We’ve been over this. Days. Nights. Weekends. Holidays. Vacations. That’s a sales job!”
“Honey, this job is different. Now I gave Archie your number. He said he’ll call you—”
“Oh my God! I just bought a house, Mom! Can we focus on the house?!”
Yeah. So that’s how most of the conversations went with my mother.

Synopsis

Callie Evans would rather hide out in her DJ sound booth than face the fact that she’s in love with her best friend, notorious campus hottie Tayber King.

Tayber turns hooking up into an art form–no drama, no commitment, no lies, and nobody gets hurt. Nobody but Callie, that is. When she sees an  opportunity to explore his sexier side using a fake online profile, she grabs it. Now her uninhibited alter-ego ‘Sasha’ is steaming up the screen, and Callie’s whole life is breaking all of Tayber’s rules.

As Callie and Tayber get closer, online and off, she knows she has to confess. And risk losing him forever.

RELEASE BLITZ & GIVEAWAY: Eternal Justice by R.L. Dodson

Displaying Eternal Justice Cover-2.jpg

Title: Eternal Justice
Author: R.L. Dodson
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: February 10th, 2014

Synopsis

Ashley’s life has been devastated once before, and she has spent the last two years rebuilding her life with her sexy CIA husband and her son.

It has been over two years since retired DEA Agent Ashley Cameron-Langston tangled with the Dixie Mafia and the Colombian Drug Cartel. Nightmares and vivid dreams have become less, until a special package arrives followed by information of a contract hit on her life.

CIA Agent, Anthony Langston will do anything to protect his beautiful, strong-willed wife and a precocious six year old son, he didn’t know he had until two years ago.

With time running out, there is only one thing to do: the hunted become the hunters.

The team is learning a lesson in justice they never got in the police academies… how to become the equivalent of mercenaries and enforce Eternal Justice. In an operation of this kind, death is imminent.

Excerpt

Ashley examined her partner and best friend’s face, saw the worry flickering in his steel gray eyes. And her panic deepened. “I am still in love with Tony and I never told him he has a son. I have so many regrets. But, all of that put aside; this operation just doesn’t feel right.” Ashley’s features grew pained, as if the admission caused her physical torture.

Chase silenced Ashley with a sympathetic look. “Stop.” He ordered. It is pointless flinging the past up at each other. You and Anthony just need to clear the air.” His voice suddenly sounded strained. “Seriously, Ashley, what do you want?”

Synopsis

For Savannah Rae, the thought of living in her picture-perfect world was almost too much to comprehend. With her dream job, a family she could finally call her own, and the beginnings of the best chapter of her life, she still couldn’t shake the unnerving feeling that it was all too good to be true.
The thought of a life without Savannah was incomprehensible to Tate Connors. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he would find his girl in the form of a sassy, stubborn, beautiful Australian. Finally he had the girl and life he so desperately wanted, but he still couldn’t ignore the fear that it would crash around him.
When Tate’s past becomes his present and Savannah’s present becomes her past, the possibility of a future together collides head-on with reality.
In her darkest days, the words Just Breathe provided a peaceful comfort to Savannah from the heavens above. Now as she and Tate go down the path of new beginnings, brutal endings, and the constant craving of a happily ever after, they are anxious to learn how to Breathe Again.
