RETURN GIVEAWAY :)

So, I realize I’ve been quite AWOL for a while now. I blame college and their long ass applications. And civics. SIGH.

ANYWAYS, in apology (SORRY!) I wanted to give away a couple of books that have just been in my room, and dying to be given to a loving owner! SO, I will be giving away paperback copies of:

– Trust in Me by Jennifer Armentrout 

-Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare. 

I really loved both these books, and they’re two of my favorite genres, historical romance and young adult romance! 🙂

TO ENTER, you can:

1. Follow my blog

2. Comment on this blog post with the most recent 5 STAR book you have read

3. Like my Facebook Page

4. Follow me on Twitter (@bookedblog)

GOOD LUCK GUYS, and watch out, because I have some great books and reviews coming up!!! 🙂

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 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…

Synopsis 

Obsidian

There’s an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he’s hot…until he opens his mouth. He’s infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bulls-eye. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and the only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Onyx

Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro alien connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems. I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing alien hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Origin

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?

Myra McEntire (STRIKE OUT): Summer Catch, Trouble With the Curve

Tell us about your story’s main character(s)

Andrew Shaffer: The unnamed narrator is a booksmart English major who spends too much time studying and not enough time partying—at least according to his best friend Allen.

Julie Cross: Audrey appears quiet and timid on the outside, but inside she has gifted intuition when it comes to reading people and a fierce loyalty to those she loves.

Lisa Desrochers: Rene Vargas’ army unit was blown up by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, and she’s scarred in more ways than one. She’s kickass is so many ways, but her whole life has changed, and now she’s left to discover who she is…with some help from Rick Hamilton (Lexie’s

Melissa West: Summer is strong and opinionated, and Blake is a classic guy’s guy with a huge

Myra McEntire: Ben is not your typical jock, but he is an amazing athlete. Liza is a go getter with a crunchy shell and a smooth center.

What motivated you to join up with other authors for this project? Do you like collaborating with writing peers?

“Well, I started this insane projected and was hit over the head with the idea during the Romantic Times convention last year. Luckily, I was in the presence of some amazing authors and able to walk right up and pitch the idea to them. Which is literally what I did, “Fifty First Times, A New Adult Anthology…are you in?” And to my complete surprise, it totally worked. I still can’t believe the authors we have onboard. And I can tell you, the stories are just fabulous. I loved every minute of reading them!” – Julie Cross, International Bestselling author of the Tempest

“I thought the concept for the general story was so fun, and definitely something I would normally love to write anyway. The fact that it would be with a bunch of other authors sharing their stories as well just made it that much more fun. I do [enjoy collaborating with peers]! It’s not something I’d ever done before this, and it was such a fun experience.”–Molly McAdams, New York Times Bestselling Author

“A huge motivation was being a part of an awesome group. Plus I was able to give readers a story with Brit and Ollie.”                 –J. Lynn, #1 New York Times Bestselling author

“I saw “Fifty First Times” as a unique opportunity to tell a different type of story than the fiction I’m accustomed to writing. Julie was very encouraging and helped me push the story in some interesting directions I hadn’t anticipated.”                                 –Andrew Shaffer, author of Fifty Shames of Earl Grey

“I love a challenge, and once the story idea came to me, there was no turning back. Writing it was an absolute blast!”                     –Melissa Landers, author of Alienated

“Anthologies are just so fun; I love the variation you see in stories all around one theme. It’s a great way to highlight the strengths of individual authors. And I love collaborating! I have a co- write book coming out in 2016.” –Hannah Moskowitz, award winning author of Gone, Gone, Gone

“I was really excited to join this project because I loved the concept from the first moment I heard it. First times. Firsts are so full of intense emotions–angst and joy and fear and excitement- -whether it’s someone’s first time ever or the first time with that special person. So I knew it would be a blast to write a story about—in the case of my story, “Two in the Morning”—two guys who have been best friends forever but who may be developing feelings beyond that. As for writing with this group of talented authors, what’s not to love? There are so many fresh perspectives and original concepts in this anthology that I can’t wait to read all of the other stories!” –Roni Loren, bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge series

QUOTES!!!! 🙂

“I twist the ring around my left finger. It’s foreign to my body, but in the same way a new pet is foreign to a person’s home. It represents work and responsibility, but somehow you know that it will eventually become a part of you. Jack’s already a part of me. It’s just the ring that’s new.”

–DAYLIGHT by Julie Cross

The friendzone wasn’t such a bad place to be. I saw how Allen treated the people he slept with. They were as disposable as red Solo cups. “I’m an equal opportunity lover,” he once told me, “but you can call me a slut.

”—BUNGA BUNGA by Andrew Shaffer

“Perhaps the gods hadn’t been so perverse after all.”

—UNDER THE SEYRN MOON by Melissa Landers

“No, if I were brave I would have—“ but I’m not even brave enough to say the words. Instead I take another swallow wine while I finish the sentence in my head. Would have let you make a move on me. Would have touched you. Would have kissed you.”

—LOVE IN AN ELEVATOR by Carrie Ryan

“Don’t push me away, V. I may not know as much as I want to about you, but the thing you need to know about me is I’m a persistent son of a bitch, and I will wear you down.”

—A LITTLE TOO SCARRED by Lisa Desrochers

Synopsis

Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not…

My Feelings 

GOSH DARN IT!!! THIS BOOK WAS SOOO DANG GOOD!!! Ok, so let me start off by saying that Wait For You is waaaaay up there on my favorites lists. I ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY fell in love with Avery and Cam every second of that beautiful book, and there was no stopping from going crazy from the range of emotions I felt. So, after Wait For You, Be With Me was waaay up there on my list of books-that-need-to-hurry-up-and-get-here and of course, I had some preetty high expectations for Be With Me. But I can honestly say that this GORGEOUS book met every.single.one. I was given every second of my well-waited-for JASE TIME *swooon* and then pleasantly surprised with Teresa!!! I really did love her, and honestly, this book was SO WELL WRITTEN and the characters were SO DARN GOOD that I couldn’t help but be impressed. Yet another score for one of my favorite authors, Ms. Jennifer Armentrout. Thank you, for gracing us with your amazing writing 😉

ANYWAYS, this book was SOOO good for quite a few reasons, but I think that the characters would have to be my number one pro. Like I said, I REALLY adored Tessa. She was everything I look for in a heroine: gorgeous, smart, a little damaged, and most importantly, WITTY 🙂 She had some really good runs.

Resting my head on his chest, I closed my eyes. Seconds passed and the gentle bob of his steps swayed me back into that pleasant state. We need to talk. About stuff. Serious stuff. And waiting until tomorrow night was probably a bad idea, bu t I snuggled closer. Being in his arms, well…

Tomorrow could go screw itself with a rusty spork.

HEHE SEE?! Tessa was freaking awesome. LOVED her with Jase!!

SPEAKING OF HOTTIES, Jase was probably one of the best ones I’ve met yet. *SIGH* There were some serious flames bursting from this book, and I loved every moment. I loved how Tess and Jase’s relationship grew. I think this was one of the only times that the whole i’ve-known-you-since-I-was-five concept worked for me, because their complete knowledge of each other just added to the beauty of the relationship. Yeah..they started off as friends, but seriously, there was no stopping Jase and Tess from happening.(P.S. I got kind of annoyed with Jase at some parts because of his whole I’m-can’t-do-this mentality…OK FINE REALLY annoyed..but it’s ok..he made up for it later 😉 ) AND just saying, Jack has GOT to be one of the most adorable kids EVER.  AND AND Cam and Avery make their appearances hehe. I seriously love me some Cam *grins stupidly* OH and Avery, of course!

Moving on, the intensity levels on this one were pretty calm in the first half of the book. It was the usual love story, and troubles with not being able to stay just friends, and the plot twist about Jase wasn’t that surprising (but very welcome!) but in my opinion, the second half of the story COMPLETELY did it for me. PHEW. There was some SERIOUS intensity and angst coming through the pages during the second half. J. Lynn was just toying with my emotions….I went from

YAAY dance jennifer lawrence    to   NO WHY   to   dreaming of him

SHEESH. talk about emotional plot twists…I LOVE IT. HEHE. I absolutely love that fast-paced, emotionally draining story because it always makes me connect with the characters and their stories more, and Be With Me definitely hit some of that angst and fear that completely won me over, with both Jase AND Tess.

UGH. the romance in this story was completely CUTE. THE CUPCAKES. ohmy..those were probably my favorite part of Jase and Tess’s relationship. LOL I mean, the cookies from Cam, and now the cupcakes from Jase. God..a girl can only take so much 😉 but seriously…there were points in this book where I was just turning away from the book and hiding a smile in my pillow, and imagining that someday I will have a boy like Jase…*sigh*

“You know, I’ve tried staying away from you. I’ve tried ignoring how I feel about you, which isn’t how I should feel. But it’s like fighting a losing battle. And I don’t want to fight it anymore. I don’t want to ignore this.”

I MEAN *SWOOON* 😉 Jase, of course, was delicious.

Be With Me was a definite win for me. I think Wait For You will always hold a special place in my heart, but Be With Me definitely did NOT disappoint. It gave me everything I could have asked for in Jase’s and Tessa’s story, and added some great tidbits and twists that just made a beautiful story even more breath-taking. Thank you, J. Lynn for this piece of work. It was completely and totally worth the wait. I loved every moment of this darn book. 🙂
