{Review+Giveaway} One S’more Summer by Beth Merlin @BethMerlin80 @InkyTheMonster

{Review+Giveaway} One S’more Summer by Beth Merlin @BethMerlin80 @InkyTheMonster

One S’more Summer by Beth Merlin is a young adult contemporary romance, and is the first book in the Campfire Series. I am a sucker for summer camp stories. I think they are the perfect summer pool/beach reads, and One S’more Summer is a great one. I loved the story and I am super excited for the second book in the series, which comes out at the end of this year. One S’more Summer is the story of Gigi, who is going through a rough patch at the start of our story. I really liked Gigi, and I certainly felt for her, though things always tend to happen for a reason. I thought that was particularly true in her case, and by the end of the book I was pleasantly satisfied that things turned out much better for her than I initially thought they would. After a string of bad luck, Gigi decides to get away for the summer, and she goes to her favorite childhood sleep away camp. Only this… Read more »

{Giveaway} Beach Reads #Giveaway Hop! #BeachReads

This hop is hosted by Valerie @ StuckInBooks You can find out more information about the giveaway HERE ——————– A few days ago I was pulling books from my shelves to giveaway for this giveaway and I was gravitating towards all the light and fluffy romances that are my go-to beach reads. When I told my boyfriend about the giveaway, he told me that he prefers fantasy books for the beach and some more dense books because he finds the ocean so relaxing that he can really dive in an concentrate on the story. Which got me thinking… What kind of beach read do you prefer? Do you enjoy light and fluffy romances? Or do you prefer something darker, or more dense? Does water and sand scream dystopian to you? I want to know! I also changed up my giveaway a bit to make sure that I wasn’t excluding any fantasy loving pool goers from the fun. —————————- THERE WILL BE 2 WINNERS! The first winner will get a book of their… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Forbidden Promises by @katee_robert @Barclay_PR

{Review+Giveaway} Forbidden Promises by @katee_robert @Barclay_PR

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert delivers the next book in her sizzling O’Malleys family series, hailed as “The Godfather meets Romeo & Juliet.” FORBIDDEN PROMISES features Sloan O’Malley and her mysterious new next-door neighbor, Jude MacNamara. Forbidden Promises is the fourth book in the contemporary romance series, called The O’Malleys by author Katee Robert. I have read several of Katee’s books in the past and really enjoyed the steamy romance, including book one in The O’Malleys.The Marriage Contract,  so I couldn’t wait to continue this series. I enjoyed getting to know some of the O’Malleys, and this is a series that I really want to go back and read books 2 and 3, which I missed. This series follows the three powerful Boston families- the O’Malleys, the Hallorans, and the Sheridans. Forbidden Promises follows Sloan and Jude. Sloan is an O’Malley, and Jude is out for Sheridan blood. If I thought The Marriage Pact was intense, the stakes were notched up even higher in this book. While, I was… Read more »

{Review} Only With Me by Kelly Elliott

{Review} Only With Me by Kelly Elliott

Only with Me is the second book in the adult contemporary romance, With Me series by Kelly Elliott. Each of the books in the With Me series can be read as standalones, and to be honest, I didn’t even realize this was the second book in the series until I pulled up the goodreads page to start compiling my post information. It really did read like a standalone. I loved the family dynamics in Only with Me. In fact, the geek mama was my very favorite part of the book. I found her to be hilariously awesome. The romance was also good, and overall this one was a decent read for me. I enjoyed it (the first half a little more than the second half) but it isn’t going to be a very memorable read in years to come. Still a fun sexy romance that will have you smiling. Only with Me is told in dual narrative between our main couple, Gabi and Nic. Gabi is an awesome cook and… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Plight by K.M. Golland

{Review+Giveaway} Plight by K.M. Golland

Plight is a new adult romantic comedy by K.M. Golland. I couldn’t turn down Plight because the summary seemed zany enough to be a funny romantic comedy. And it was. But at times it was a bit too over the top for me. A fun read, but it didn’t blow my socks off. The concept is equal parts hilarious and crazy. Basically, two neighborhood friends have proposal when they are 8 years old with a cheese doodle as the ring. Flash forward to when they are 30 and Elliot is ready to cash in on that marriage. Plight is a zany read that was fun. Parts of it are completely unrealistic and unbeliveable but if you are in the mood for some light hearted fun that you don’t take too seriously, Plight is a fast paced read that will put a smile on your face. The reason I couldn’t go from like to love with Plight was the fast pace that the story sets out on. We are in chapter… Read more »

{Review} The Key by Jennifer Anne Davis @AuthorJennifer

{Review} The Key by Jennifer Anne Davis @AuthorJennifer

The Key is the first book in the True Reign series by Jennifer Anne Davis. The True Reign series is a young adult fantasy series. Jennifer Anne Davis’ Reign of Secrets series is my all time favorite young adult fantasy series. The Reign of Secrets series is the story of Princess Alyssa, which is the daughter of the couple in the True Reign series. So even though the two series can be read separately and can stand on their own, they are set in the same world and revolve around the same family of characters. I knew that because I am loving the Reign of Secrets series so much, I needed to read the True Reign trilogy. Plus, I knew I would love it as well because I am such a huge fan of Jennifer Anne Davis’ writing style. I am halfway through book two right now, and I am totally hooked. I love reading the story of Darmik and Rema, Alyssa’s parents. But in The Key, they are just… Read more »
