{Review} Life After Falling by Alyssa Rose Ivy @alyssaroseivy

{Review} Life After Falling by Alyssa Rose Ivy @alyssaroseivy

It is so nice to get to read a contemporary by Alyssa Rose Ivy. It was just what I needed last night. Lately, I have been focusing more on her paranormal books, which I love, but I forgot how great her contemporaries were too. When I read the summary for Life After Falling and I saw that the main character goes on a journey of sorts to fix an old cassette tape, which she believes holds the key to happiness, I knew I was in. That sounds just kooky enough to be a good time. And it totally was. (a good time, that is.) I loved this sweet feel good romance between two people- Cassidy and Leo, who are both trying to find their way for very different reasons. I loved how mysterious the cassette tape was. We didn’t find out why it was so important or just what the heck was on it until rather late in the story. What is impressive though is the lengths that Cassidy went… Read more »

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Lust by @alyssaroseivy @InkSlingerPR

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Lust by @alyssaroseivy @InkSlingerPR

Lust is the second novel in the Allure Chronicles, a new adult paranormal romance series. Lust picks up right after Lure left off, with Daisy and Owen having just found each other and the bomb of what Daisy having allure essence in her really means. It was one doozy of an ending, but then again the end of Lust was also pretty gut wrenching. Alyssa why do you do this to me?? Ugh I just love her books so much. And the Allure Chronicles has to be one of my favorite series of hers. I love all of the characters, not only just Daisy and Owen, but Violet and Roland have special places in my heart as well. I was kind of hoping that we would see more of Roland in this book. Not because I dislike Owen. I really love him, I am just also intrigued by Owen and his connection with Daisy. Luckily, I have a feeling that I will be seeing a lot more of him in… Read more »

{Review} Forged in Stone by Alyssa Rose Ivy @alyssaroseivy

{Review} Forged in Stone by Alyssa Rose Ivy @alyssaroseivy

Forged in Stone is the first book in a new series, The Forged Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy. I jump at any book Alyssa Rose Ivy writes. I just love her and I pretty much know that I will get a good story with all of her books. That being said, I still normally do my due diligence with review requests. But when Alyssa Rose Ivy emailed me asking if I wanted an ARC of Forged in Stone I just said yes. And yes before you freak out, I did really enjoy the book. (duh.) But I had no idea what it would be about when I started reading it. None at all. So I am going to give you my initial blank slate impressions/embarrassing realizations. Forged in Stone starts off feeling very contemporary romance. So I started to slip into my new adult contemporary comfort zone, and then things started feeling a little fantasy/paranormal. Oh boy was I intrigued. But wait, the confessions don’t stop there. Because then things… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend by @AlyssaRoseIvy

{Review+Giveaway} The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend by @AlyssaRoseIvy

Note:The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend is the Fifth book in the Hazards Series. You can find out more about the series, HERE The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend is the Fifth we get to check in on the past couples as well. Each book can be read as a standalone but I love Juliet and Reed, and Mallory and Colton so much that I would suggest reading them all. The girls are all sorority sisters and they are all such great friends. I can’t wait to see who the next book is about. I missed book four, Savy and Glen’s story. I didn’t even realize it until I was sitting down to write this review. I will need to remedy that ASAP! The Hazards of Sleeping with a Friend is Kyle and Jade’s story. I really like Jade and Kyle. If you have read the series, you will remember Kyle best from Juliet’s story (book 1) as Dylan’s younger and much nicer brother. I am so glad that Kyle was finally… Read more »

{ #Review } Lure by @AlyssaRoseIvy #TakeControlTBR

{ #Review } Lure by @AlyssaRoseIvy #TakeControlTBR

Lure is the first full length novel in the Allure Chronicles, a new adult paranormal romance series. There is also a prequel novella out that is FREE on amazon, called Seduction’s Kiss that is a great introduction to the series. I would 100% recommend reading Seduction’s Kiss first. Now, a note on the name. This makes the book sound way crazier than it is. Seduction’s Kiss is a magic lotion that was given to the main character and it is much better explained in Lure, but the name is a bit misleading until you get to the first book. The Allure Chronicles is Owen’s story. It is set in the same paranormal world of The Society that Alyssa Rose Ivy writes so well. I love the idea of multiple series existing alongside each other in the same world. And they each have different paranormals that drift in and out of the books in varying degrees. If you are new to Alyssa Rose Ivy’s paranormal series, I think the Allure Chronicles… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Seduction’s Kiss by @alyssaroseivy @InkSlingerPR

{Review+Giveaway} Seduction’s Kiss by @alyssaroseivy @InkSlingerPR

Alyssa Rose Ivy had done it again! Seduction’s Kiss is a prequel novella to the Allure Chronicles. Which is a new adult paranormal romance series set in her awesome world of New Orleans with all the paranormals we know and love from her. This is a companion series to both the Crescent Chronicles and the Empire Chronicles. (and kind of the Dire series as well) I love that they are all set in the same universe because we gets lots of cross over. Seduction’s Kiss is a lovely little set up to the series, and best of all, it is FREE on amazon. So you have no excuse to not go out and grab a copy ASAP. And Lure, the first full length book in the series, released earlier this week. I can’t wait to read it myself, especially after having my appetite whetted from Seduction’s Kiss. Seduction’s Kiss and the Allure Chronicles follow Daisy ( a non- paranormal) and Owen, a character from previous books. Daisy is dragged to… Read more »

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Dire by @AlyssaRoseIvy or @InkSlingerPR

Yay for some good new adult paranormal. We need more of that, in my opinion. And yay for Alyssa Rose Ivy for creating an original storyline. It was part kidnapper story, part shifter and a whole lot of interesting. I really enjoyed Dire. I wasn’t sure what to make of the romance a lot of the time. I liked Cage, and Hunter left me with mixed emotions. But I do know one thing for sure, I need to get my hands on a copy of Dusk as soon as possible because I am dying to know what is going to happen next. Alyssa Rose Ivy created this world I think set in the world of the Empire Chronicles and the Crescent Chronicles because the creatures are the same and a king was alluded to, but there hasn’t been any character cross over yet (although I haven’t completed the Empire Chronicles, so maybe there is) I think that was a really cool way to set up a book. I love that… Read more »

{Review} The Hazards of Sex on the Beach by @AlyssaRoseIvy

{Review} The Hazards of Sex on the Beach by @AlyssaRoseIvy

I have said it before, and I will say it again…I love Alyssa Rose Ivy. She is one of those authors that I know is so consistently good, that I can pick up any of her books and I will enjoy them. I love her hazards series, and this third book, The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is no different. It is fun, romantic, and an all around great read. I love that the series follows a group of friends. The Hazards of Sex on the Beach is Cara’s story. The book starts out much like all the books in the Hazards series do, with the very act that the title says. There is something comforting in that. I pick up the book, knowing how it will start and then I get to enjoy the ride from there. Cara just  broke up with her jerk of an ex boyfriend after she found out that she was cheating on her basically during their whole relationship. Can you believe that? She… Read more »
