SYNOPSIS

Taryn grew up in a different world. Her boyfriend was a criminal. His older brother was part of a gang. They weren’t great people, but they were her family. Then everything changes when she’s sent to a new family in the neighboring town. New family. New friends. A new world. She’s elated. This is her chance for a new beginning, but secrets start being revealed and Taryn learns her new life has some ties to her old one, ties that she’s not happy about. Her new family might not have been the lucky break she thought she had.

TEASER ALERT  🙂
Then he nodded. “Congratulations.”
“On what?”
“You earned their respect.”
I snorted. “I don’t care.”
“I know.” A smile teased at the corners of his lips. “They saw that too and because of that, they fear you now.”

SYNOPSIS

A sizzling hot, new SPIRAL OF BLISS spin-off novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane

“Do you ever let go, storm girl?” he asked. “Ever lose control? Ever surrender?”
“Never,” I whispered. “I never surrender.”
A smile of both promise and warning curved his beautiful mouth.
“You will.”

Atmospheric scientist Kelsey March is under siege. Her tornado research project is on the skids and she’s fighting conflict in her university department. So when irresistible bad boy Archer West suggests a hot, wild fling while he’s in town, Kelsey is unable to resist his sexy offer.

Kelsey and Archer embark on a intense, exhilarating affair. But soon their differences and private battles encroach on their desire, and Kelsey discovers that Archer is a storm she can’t control.

My FEEEELINGS
SO, Break the Sky! Totally won me over. And I absolutely LOVED it. 🙂
Three things that I LOVED:
The completely swoonworthy hero who not only was perfectly bad boyish, but also sassy and HOT
The strong, strom-chasing, and sexy professor (#girlpower) 😉
A man who’s good with a baby
Oh wait…make that four things: THE HOT SCENES. *OMG SWOOOON*
Okay, so Kelsey March is our heroine. She is the type of woman who battled her way through life and made the perfect living for herself. But she has the demons and every one of those demons is what Archer West (our man and yes, the brother of Dean from the Spiral of Bliss series) threatens to bring up in her life. She hates losing control. She hates taking risks. But what ends up happening? Yup. I already really admired Kelsey from Dean and Liv’s stories, but her personality of humor mixed with vulnerability and a tinge of sass made me fall in girl-crush mode. sigh.
And Archer. I mean, what more can I say than:
FANGIRLING
Hehe. I absolutely loved Archer. He was the perfect mix of badass, romantic, and SEXY AS HELL. With SEXY AS HELL taking the lead 😉
I enjoyed every moment he had with Kelsey, and there was no moment where I didn’t really make me smile or swoon. He was on fire.
“Liar, liar, pants on fire,” I said instead.
“Oh my pants are definitely on fire, baby”
I MEAN COME ON. *fans self*
And then he goes again.
KELSEY: No. I’m in the cereal aisle of the grocery store.
ARCHER:I’ll frost your flakes good, baby.
FIST BUMP
AND
HEHE
Seriously. I loved him
The book in itself was one gorgeous read. I thought it started off a bit slow, but don’t worry later, you will be balling, laughing so hard, and sighing and swooning and fanning to the max. It got exponentially better as the book went on, and once again, Nina Lane delivered a story that touched my heart, made it pound, made it it stop, and then restarted it again. Beautiful.
I triple dog dare you to read this SCORCHING HOT love story, because it will definitely sweep you off you feet. I mean, how could it not with a panty-dropping, sex-on-wheels kind of guy 😉

I guarantee that by the end of this book, you will have a new book boyfriend, a new girl crush, and a HUGEASS book hangover. 🙂 3..2..1…GO!

4.5 SWOONWORTHY BUTTERFLIES from me!! 🙂

SYNOPSIS

Love is a circus

“Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off of trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.”

The best aerial technique won’t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour—a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she’s out of her element the second she meets Amour’s leading performer. Confident, charming and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova aggravatingly lives up to his nickname as the “God of Russia.”

When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai’s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That’s what Nik calls their “non-existent” relationship. It’s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future—acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world.

Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes—Thora fears that she’s destined to be “just background” to his spellbinding show.

This sexy and exhilarating New Adult Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage.

*standalone & no love triangles—recommended for readers 18+ for mature content*

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!!! 🙂

synopsis blog

In this sequel to Wallbanger, the second book in the Cocktail series, fan favorites Caroline and Simon negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in San Francisco.

Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much travelling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?

USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy cocktail of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

My Feelings!
AAAAAND THEY’RE BACK!!!! SIMON AND CAROLINE ARE BAACK!!!!! 🙂 🙂 When I first saw Rusty Nailed on my Kindle, I couldn’t stop staring because I was just SO excited 🙂 And then I dove right in! I really like Rusty Nailed. To be honest, not as much as Wallbanger because it wasn’t as funny, but it was such a great read because of the characters, especially my favs, Simon, Caroline, and of course, Clive the cat (: And of course, the support staff: Mimi, Sophia, Ryan, Neal, and Jillian made their appearances! YAY!
Alright, so, Caroline? Yup. Still the gorgeous, witty, hilarious, and best heroine ever. Except, now we get to see the angsty side of her. Rusty Nailed was more on the after-happily-ever-what-could-go-wrong side, in that a lot of the book was Simon and Caroline exploring their relationship and figuring out how to balance everything in their lives while moving forward. So, there was a bit more drama and NO NO NO!!! moments in this one. But I LOVED IT. I loved the trouble and angst because it made the book so engaging and easy to read and so easy to stay in touch with the characters and their feelings. So, basically, I really loved it because of Caroline’s down-to-earth, no shitting me attitude. I seriously love her. Because of her character and narration throughout the book, awkward moments became hilarious, and funny & cute moments were ADORABLE. So, even though this book wasn’t as funny as Wallbanger, it was still hella funny 🙂
AND SIMON!!!! hehe. 😉 Simon is seriously the greatest man ever. He is funny, sooooo kind, GORGEOUS, HOT, and of course, a world-traveling photographer. So, basically, the perfect man. 😉 And the perfection continued in Rusty Nailed. Simon was completely adorable once again. The obsession with the breads ( and every other food the Caroline makes) makes an appearance! YES! And every time, it is the funniest thing ever when he’s drooling over food. And more than that, he’s the sweet Simon too! But he’s a sweet Simon with a bit of sass and lots of humor too.
..”Look, I adore you, and I want a home. Again. With you.”
That did it. Cue the waterworks.
“You’re killing me Simon.” I sniffled, tears and nose beginning to run.
“I know. I’m very cute when I’m vulnerable,” he said, making me snort in a very unladylike manner.
HEHE SEE!!! Simon and Caroline are totally back 🙂 I really love the easygoing yet serious relationship that Simon and Caroline have. I think in Rusty Nailed, a lot of the tensions are outside factors, like work and friend drama, but they always get through it, whether it’s with little moments or a huge blowout of emotion. I absolutely love how they’re so funny and complement each other so well, and it was such a great read, to see them strike, yet again. Their relationship is the best.

“Well, good goddamn, Dr. Phil, color me impressed,” I said, clinking my coffee cup next to his. “So what do we do next? Y’know, as people in a relationship after they’ve resolved a conflict?”

“Pretty sure a blow job should follow this,” he said seriously.

HAHA
So, even though we actually see a lot of Mimi, Ryan, Neal, Sophia, and Jillian, Simon and Caroline are still, hands-down, my favs 🙂
 They had me laughing until my stomach kind of hurt, and clutching my bed sheet in fear in their angsty moments, so it was kind of fantastic 😉
Rusty Nailed was a great read. It was a great mix of everything you want to see in a book. It had the
andrew garfield...LAUGHING

 and the

HOT rbd

and the

OMGOMGJONSTEWART

HAHAHA. Basically, you should really read it, because you will fall in love with Simon and Caroline, and Clive, ONCE AGAIN 🙂

RED HOT OBSESSIONS WAS SOME SERIOUSLY HOT STUFF. Just saying 😉

No, but honestly, theses short stories/mini-books were GREAT, because they ranged over every type of love story one could ever wish for. Every author took their own spin on these hot gorgeous boys and the witty and full-of-humor girls, and it was SUCH a great read. PLUS, I got to read 10 books in one shot. So, it was great.

Some of my favs? Were actually the first two I read. His Wicked Games and Fierce. I really liked these two the best because they had such great storylines, and made my heart pound, but they were completely different stories.

His Wicked Games is the adult love story, and it was so fun watching the main character, Lily, as she journeys her way through the man that is Calder, who was one FINE man. 😉 What I loved most about this story was that it didn’t oversell anything or anyone. The story ran very smoothly, and usually, when I read short stories, I sometimes feel as if the stories are forced and authors are clamoring to put huge story into less words, and that just annoys me at times. But His Wicked Games was really smooth in that Lily’s and Calder’s stories weren’t rushed at all. In fact, they took their time exploring each other and, even though I felt it was a litttle predictable ;), I still really enjoyed their story and YAY for happy endings 🙂 🙂 I would give it 3.5/4 STARS!

Next, we have Fierce, which was some seriously good reading material 😉 It follows the story of college freshman, Autumn who meets other college freshman, Hunter, but theirs isn’t the typical college romance, because Hunter is a bad boy. And when I say bad, I mean BAD. But, I mean bad boys are always the best right? 😉 Hehe. I actually really felt the chemistry between the two, and at times I was feeling for Autumn, because I was like, “What the hell is Hunter doing right now?!”, but it all worked out. The thing I liked most about Fierce? The intricately woven story. I had my doubts in the beginning, but it was a great ride. All the plot twists and events had me guessing until the very end and speaking, of the end, YAY! I absolutely loved the ending on Fierce. It was in no way abrupt. Rather, it brought the entire story to an end while bringing the entire story together and giving me and the rest of the audiences the closure needed 😉 It was a GREEAT ending and I LOVED LOVED LOVED HUNTER ❤ 🙂 I give Fierce 4 STARS!

All in all, Red Hot Obsessions was a great read! There were so many great characters and stories in one anthology and it was soooo much fun getting to see their stories play out and all of them come into their happy endings.
As a whole, I give it 4 STARS!!!! 🙂

  1. Olivia Rigal sings every Wednesday night in the karaoke club
  2. Olivia Rigal went to dog grooming school
  3. Lacey Silks had a passion for acting when she was a teen. As an extra she met Marlon Brando, Matthew Broderick, Ricky Lake, Brendan Fraser, Jerry O’Connell and Shirly MacLain
  4. Lacey Silks is afraid of flying. If you ever sit beside her on a plane, don’t mind the Hail Mary’s. And good luck getting to the bathroom. She will not unbuckle her seat belt through the entire flight
  5. Before she was an author, Ember casey worked as a pastry chef. She’s never met a cake (or puff pastry, or tart, or chocolate truffle) she didn’t love
  6. Ember Casey started writing Romance because her critique group kept telling her that her attempts at Young Adult were too, uh, “adult”
  7. J.C. Valentine is a reality TV junkie. The Kardashians hold her prisoner often and without mercy
  8. J.C. Valentine loves thunderstorms. They’re perfect for writing
  9. Clarissa Wild always drinks tea when writing, and she needs at least 2 cups of earl grey tea a day
  10. Like the main character in her book Fierce, Clarissa Wild is actually quite a book-nerd, and not just that … she loves playing videogames as well
  11. Sky Corgan actually participates in the BDSM lifestyle as a dominant
  12. Sky Corgan has to have complete silence while writing, so no coffee shop writing
  13. V.J. Chambers still watches The Vampire Diaries, and she’s still on Team Damon
  14. V.J. Chambers has a cat called Isis, and she does not like to relinquish the keyboard for her to actually write. She would rather lie on it
  15. Blair Babylon has lived in 5 US states: Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, New Jersey and New York
  16. Blair Babylon was a child actor and model who did over 30 TV commercials and a short-lived PBS series
  17. During her tween years, Molly McLain began writing while listening to Wednesday night dedications and requests on radio. Since no one ever dedicated a romantic song to her, she made up her own love stories instead. To this day, all it takes to get the creative juices flowing is a little REO Speedwagon
  18. Molly McLain is a closet WWE fan. She may or may not fangirl over Randy Orton to the point her children refer to him as her boyfriend. They’re also kind enough to pause the TV when he’s on so she can drool
  19. Although Daizie Draper’s pretty kinky, she’s more of a switch than a straight-up sub. The BDSM in Sorority Pledge veers into many untested areas for her because Addison, the sub in the story, learns she’s masochistic, which I Daizie is not
  20. One of Daizie’s quirky things is that she hates crumbs, like stepping on them with her bare feet. It just irks her like nothing else

synopsis blog

It wasn’t exactly like spunky, photography student, Abbie Nartey ran away from her life…except, that she left under the cover of darkness and put three thousand miles between her and her ex-boyfriend’s betrayal. She went to London searching for her dream. She never expected to find love, or herself.

Heir to his family’s tech fortune, sexy, Alexi Chase, is looking for freedom—from his family and from his past. What he’s not looking for is love. With secrets like his, he can’t afford to let anyone get too close. But a chance rescue has him wondering if the price of keeping secrets is too high.

Will Alexi risk losing love to keep his past hidden? Will Abbie trust herself enough to love again? Or will their pasts keep then from accepting true love?

This book contains mature themes and is intended for audiences 18+

My Feelings!

London Bound was really a great read for me. It had everything I love. The hot boy. The beautiful girl. And the adventure, haunting pasts, and gorgeous supporting crew that make a book whole. Abbie and Lex were such a great couple, and their story was neither too fast nor too slow. It was just so right, and they were seriously made to be with each other, and I felt it.

AND SO, let’s start with Abbie. Who I adored btw 🙂 She was a girl caught up in a bad situation, and who had the guts to finally take her life into her own hands, and have the ability and strength to recognize what her true passion was. She basically followed her dreams to the other side of the world, and for that alone I already admired her. And I was only like 30 pages into the book. So, of course, she gets better and better, in my opinion. She is one levelheaded and strong girlie, but I think what got me the most was that she didn’t let her past dictate her present, and she let go of all her bad experiences to let herself discover what happiness was, and she found that with Lex. *SIGH* SO BEAUTIFUL ;’) Basically, their happy moments had me going like this for the entire time.. 😉

YYAYAYAYAYA friends.

Speaking of beautiful…and gorgeous…and hot…and BRITISH 😉 HAHA Lex was a great hero. He had the typically great looks and money, but he had the haunted past and the personal issues as well. For me, the only kind-of bummer was the predictability of the big dark secrets. I was pretty much able to piece together a lot of the twists from the book, and personally, I love me some surprises, so Lex’s story and all the reactions to it were not as poignant as they could have been. But other than that, I really enjoyed his relationships with everyone, especially Gemma and Xander, because it showed the depth of his loyalty and love for both of them *hint hint* HAHAH JK. no spoiler zone.

And of course, he totally fell head-over-heels for Abbie, and I definitely loved that part as well. Made me want my own happy ending. And in London, of course. I loved the banter, the straight-talking, and the pep talks that all the characters received from each other. I saw the family within the book, and for me, that is what makes a good book better: when the supporting characters really feel like a part of the story and everything and everyone comes together to make a perfect cast 🙂

All in all, I really enjoyed this read, and other than a few minor things, I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a dreams-comes-true or making-my-own-way read 🙂 It was seriously such a cute read and I loved Lex and Abbie the entire way, and I know you guys will too 🙂

3.5 BUTTERFLIES from me!
