SYNOPSIS

Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.

My FEEEELINGS
AAAHHH!!!!!! I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START.
So, the story.
Charlie and Silas are two people who woke up with no recollection of their past whatsoever. They have no idea what their worlds are built on. But all they know is that they woke up at the same time, in the same situation. At this point, I’m going to stop, because if I tell you anything else, it will be a spoiler. And *spoiler free zone* 😉
That said, I LOOOOVED THIS STORY. The plot twists. The feeeels. The rekindling friendships. Reading Charlie and Silas discovering little bits of themselves everyday made me fall in love with them. I felt their pain and confusion and happiness every single step of the way, and they had me on edge, like
13301384
and
9795331
Never Never was definitely a book I would read a million times over, and if you have read Don’t Look Back by Jennifer Armentrout, it had that mystery/suspense feel to it, which I absolutely loooved. It had everything I appreciate in a boy, girl, and book. The humor, puns, gorgeous boy, confident girl. But what I liked most about it was the way everything fell into place so perfectly.
The mystery in this book, in my opinion, was FLAWLESS. There were sooo many scenarios running through my head at any given moment, trying to guess what Silas and Charlie’s pasts were, but with every detail and every scene, I lost myself in their story a little more. This book told me nothing, and so much at the same time. One minute you think you know what’s going to happen and BAM! NOPE. There go your predictions.
And I cannot forget about the writing. Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher are goddesses, suffice to say. I can’t get over how brilliantly they put this story on paper. Like, please.

We’re branded. You and me. We are so in love, Charlie. You feeling it yet? Do I make your heart go pitter patter

The only thing that I felt was the story was too short, and the craziest part of the book was basically squished into the last chapter, but I kinda loved it like that because it made the suspense more potent. Anyways, I completely recommend reading this. It is definitely up there on my lists of breathtakingly suspenseful books. But BE WARNED. The cliffhanger is one that made me stare at my computer for a good 10 minutes, with a face like:

 I’m gonna make you fall in love with me again.

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*

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.

My FEEEELINGS
AH! Another AHMAZING read from Tijan!! I really enjoyed reading A Whole New Crowd for a multitude of reasons. It was well-paced and had everything I needed, from the annoying characters, to the confusing ones, to the heart-breaking ones. From the frustrating moments to the OHMYGOSH ones. I found a book boyfriend in Tray *sigh*
heh
and the crazy girl I love in Taryn.
They both made me feel like HOW? AW!!! OMG!! YAAS!! ugh…Basically,
me omg yes
Honestly, I loved a lot about this books. First, the plot was well done. It had a lot of twists, but not overly so. The beginning was a bit slow, but I appreciated that because the beginning is the gateway to the rest of the book, and the background needed to be set. I really liked the double life of the book, as it swung from Taryn’s old life to her new one, and back again. I loved seeing all the different sides of every single character, and somehow, Tijan made it happen. INCREDIBLE. 🙂
Tray and Taryn were a great couple. AWNC wasn’t overly romantic. It was just right. It was the perfect mix of drama, action, and romance. I fell in love with not only the characters but the entirety of the books 🙂
I ENJOYED THE ENTIRE THING, which I can not say for many books.
As for the characters, my favorite character would probably have to be Jase. He’s so mysterious, and there’s so many layers to him that I’m just dying to find out more about him. Plus, he’s so dang hot. HEHE
Anyways, I would definitely recommend this book. To all those Tijan lovers, this is another one of her fantastic reads that you just can’t stop until you hit the very last page. And to those who have not yet discovered her, GO! 🙂
4 BUTTERFLIES FROM THIS GIRL!! 🙂 ❤

TEASER ALERT

 

 

“She’s one of mine. She’s one of us.” He spread his arms out wide and raised his voice even louder. “We persevere. We’re the strong. We take on any circumstances and we still thrive. We’re going to keep thriving. Hell, we’re going to conquer. She’s got that rush in her and she won’t be satisfied with you. None of you. You just wait and see.” He looked down at me, his eyebrows lifted, as if seeing me for the first time. He fell back a step. Sweat was running down his face. He whispered to me, “I’ll wait for you, Taryn. I love you. You’re mine. No one else can take your place.”
Tears were rolling down my face. I ignored them.

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 blog

A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don’t protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he’s caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she’s at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose…

blurb

Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.

Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.

Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.

Synopsis

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. In this heart-pounding follow-up to Tangled by New York Times bestseller Emma Chase, Kate reveals that there is trouble in paradise, when unexpected circumstances force her and Drew to “renegotiate” their relationship.There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself—and of me.But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice; the most important of my life. Drew already made hisin fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville, Ohio, alone. Well, sort of alone..What I’ve come to realize is that old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead.

 

My Feelings!
 Twisted? UM YES PUH-LEASE. Seriously. I loved Twisted. I love Tangled, and Twisted didn’t disappoint. It was like Tangled all over again, except a different plot. And a good one I must say 😉 Drew is BACK. Kate is BACK. And Drew’s family is BACK. The humor, angst, disappointments, and frustrations are all BACK. So, basically, I fell in love all over again. 😉 Only con? It’s from Kate’s POV. Not that I don’t like Kate. I love her, but Drew’s POV is just so much moore. BUT THANK GOD, the epilogue? It’s alll Drew 🙂 😉 ♥
Twisted continues Kate and Drew’s story, and PHEW they cannot get it together. But it’s okay because they’re in love and they always come back together. 🙂 I know. Sounds a little naive and dreamer status,  but hey, I’m only seventeeen 🙂 ANYWAYS. Kate has always been the best. Her stubbornness and her Im-not-gonna-take-your-shit way of life has me laughing and clapping for her more times than I could count. But in Twisted, that same stubbornness takes her for a BUMPY ride, and basically makes her miserable for quite a while. BUT, there’s so much that goes on! She’s still in love with Drew. A LOT. And she still understands him like no one else has. AND she ends up with him, so all is well 🙂 🙂 Except, this is the G rated version. The actual version? HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT. SMOKIN. Which made it that much better. 😀
Cutest quote ever?
I love you too. I love that you’re funding Mackenzie’s future because you won’t stop cursing. I love how you tease your sister unmercifully but would kill anyone who hurt her. But most of all…I love how you love me. I feel it every moment…every day.”
AH! *melts*
OH, and then there’s Drew *sigh* *grins* Drew is baack. And of course, he makes a mistake. Yup. And then the story goes crazy. But, that’s Drew for you! AND I LOVE IT! 🙂 Just saying, 30% of the book is gone, and everything goes CRAZY. As in, everyone’s mental and overly emotional and there’s sooo much angst, and it’s kind of Drew’s fault. But it’s okay because he more than makes up for it before and after the incident. He’s completely, head over heels in love with Kate and she’s his life, and he has the best ways of showing that, whether it be through his words or his actions. Again. SMOKIN. 😉 As is he. Drew hasn’t changed. He’s still the overprotective, overbearing, and loving man he always was. It’s just a little more in Twisted. And he was stil DAMN hot. 😉
yes i would have his babies gif
Once again, misunderstandings play a really BIG part in Drew and Kate’s lives, and honestly, that was a little frustrating, both in a good and bad way. Good that there was so much emotion and ANGST, and then bad, that it took them SO FREAKING LONG to figure it. At one point in the book, I was basically like,
Shit_just_got_real
and then was like OH SHIT, please be a happy ending. Please be a happy ending. Because it was just sooo much!! I loved every second of Twisted though! In all seriousness, it made me laugh SO MUCH when Drew was with his family. That said, I should probably give you a sneak peek of my favorite scene 😉
The actual eating of the meal is uneventful, but during dessert, Alexandra taps her glass with a spoon.
“Everyone-can I have your attention, please?” She beams at Steven and then goes on. “Mackenzie has an announcement she’d like to make.”
Mackenzie stands on her chair and proclaims, “My mom and dad had sex!”
The entire table went silent.
Until Matthew raises his glass.
“Congratulations, Steven. It’s like halley’s Comet right? You only get to come very seventy-five years?”
Delores laughs.
HAHAHAHHAHA OMG. I died. And there’s sooo much more where that came from. Basically, Mackenzie my favorite. Hands down. She’s the best 😉
Anyways, TWISTED? Read it. Read it now. You will feel everything you will ever want to feel, and some things you never will want to, but it’s all in there. Drew and Kate come together for another AMAZING story, and I fell in love with them and their love all over again. It was such a great read, and I loved, and I SWEAR, I NEED THE NEXT ONE. LIKE PRONTO 😉
5 AMAZING, MIND BLOWING, LAUGHTER-FILLED STARS!!!! 🙂
