{Review+Giveaway} Hear the Wolves by Victoria Scott @AuthorVScott @Scholastic ‏

{Review+Giveaway} Hear the Wolves by Victoria Scott @AuthorVScott @Scholastic ‏

Hear the Wolves is a middle grad/young adult crossover by Victoria Scott. I have read each and every one of Victoria’s books and I have loved them all. Hear the Wolves is so different than all of her previous books. I loved this one too, but I think what I loved most about it was how different it was. Victoria has a way with words. I love how she tells a story, whether it is a romance, a paranormal or something totally creepy and eerily realistic, she pulls the reader in, in a way few authors have managed to consistently do. I just love her books. Sloan, her father, and her sister live in a tiny and remote Alaskan town. Think one step ahead of those Alaskan bush people. There is a town and store, but just barely. And the wolves outnumber the people in the town. By a lot. Sloan suffered a terrible accident when she was younger and it has left deep emotional scars. She is terrified to… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} CRAZY FOR YOU by @RachelsLacey @ForeverRomance

{Review+Giveaway} CRAZY FOR YOU by @RachelsLacey @ForeverRomance

Crazy for You is a new adult/adult contemporary romance by Rachel Lacey. It is the second book in the Risking it All series; however it can be read as a standalone. This was  my first book in the series and my first book by Rachel, and I have to say, it was so much fun! I really enjoyed Crazy for You. It made me want to go back and read all the other books. Crazy for You is the story of Emma and Ryan. Emma is a small town in North Carolina’s resident good girl and Ryan has a bad boy image from his teenage years still following him around no matter what he does to try and change it. So when Emma comes to him and tell him she wants to shake things up and have some fun he is really torn. For many reasons, but you will just have to read the book (and the summary) to figure those out. I really, really liked both Emma and Ryan…. Read more »

{Review} CO-WRECKER by Meghan Quinn

{Review} CO-WRECKER by Meghan Quinn

Co-Wrecker is a new adult contemporary romance by Meghan Quinn. It is a very funny, almost outlandish co-workers romance. I had a lot of fun with this one but it wasn’t my favorite of Meghan Quinn’s book. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good read and I am certainly still a fan of her books. (She wrote one of my very favorite reads of 2016- Stroked Long with Bodi!) I will be reading all of her other books, I just had a bit of a hard time meshing with the main characters in this one. They were great people and the romance was awesome. They were just a bit too much for my tastes. However; I can see fans of romantic comedies really enjoying Co-Wrecker. Co-Wrecker is the story of Sadie and Andrew. I liked Sadie and at first, I loved Andrew. He is a hot nerd who loves to talk about baseball just as much as he likes to talk about computer codes. I loved that about him…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Legally Charming by Lauren Smith @LSmithAuthor

{Review+Giveaway} Legally Charming by Lauren Smith @LSmithAuthor

Legally Charming is the first book in the new adult contemporary romance Ever After series by Lauren Smith. This is my second book by Lauren, and I liked it more than I did the first book of hers. (Which was the first book in her British Stepbrother series.) Legally Charming was a very cute read. I enjoyed it. Since the series is called Ever After you can make some assumptions that they are going to be cute, slightly cheesy romances. And they are…but I dug that about this book. It was the kind of cheesy happy I was in the mood for. Legally Charming is the story of Felicity and Jared, who are swept up in a whirlwind quick romance. So if insta love isn’t your thing, this might not be the book for you. (They didn’t fall in love at first sight, but they did fall in love within a week.) But, like I said, I really liked the story and sweet romance between Jared and Felicity. I loved… Read more »

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Con Man by @TTorrest

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Con Man by @TTorrest

Con Man is a contemporary romance by T. Torrest. Guys, it is no secret that I love love love makeover stories. There is just something about the character growth and the confidence they get, and even better if the romance is between the makeover guru and the client. I just eat it up. All the time. And Con Man is no different. I loved Con Man. It was such a fun read! Plus, we don’t only get to see one of his makeover students…we get to see 3! Con Man is the story of Ainsley and Lucas and Mia. The twist on the class makeover story is that Lucas used to be a geek and he used to know Ainsley. Yes, yes, yes. yes too all of it. I couldn’t read this book quick enough. I just kept getting more and more excited as it went on. And then there is Mia. Mia is another client of his that he has a great friendship with. I loved that this book… Read more »

{Review} Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse @TheNovl @cookieplease

{Review} Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse @TheNovl @cookieplease

Seven Days of You  by Cecilia Vinesse is a young adult contemporary romance that takes place in Tokyo, Japan. I loved the setting of this book. I bet Tokyo is such a vibrant and alive city. I thought it made the perfect place for a week of crazy adventures for these friends. I loved the way the book was set up. Sofia, or Sofa to her friends (I hated her nickname!) lives in Tokyo and goes to an American academy there while her mom is teaching at a university. But the book starts out when she only has seven days left until she leaves, and the chapters start off with countdowns until her departure. It kind of reminded me of The Night we Said Yes  by Lauren Gibaldi. I really liked the flow of the book. It is about a group of friends that all have secrets and crushes and their own drama, but the romance was actually super cute. There were some light family issues thrown in to keep things… Read more »

{Review} There’s Something About Nik by Sara Hantz

{Review} There’s Something About Nik by Sara Hantz

There’s Something About Nik by Sara Hantz is a young adult contemporary romance. It’s about an undercover prince and I have had such great success with the Entangled crush line that I so wanted to love this one. I really really did. But it just didn’t work for me. I’m not really sure why. Sara Hantz did a fine job with the writing, and I wouldn’t be opposed to reading another one of her books, but this plot wasn’t for me. And that is ok. If you think you would love a book about a mysterious guy who is really a prince, you should check out some of the reviews I have linked below. Lot’s of people really enjoyed this book. There’s Something about Nik is the story of Nik and Amber. Nik comes to an american boarding school and he is so clearly hiding a secret. And honestly, I liked Nik for the most part. I hated how everyone treated him. I mean they were all huge jerks and… Read more »
