{Review} All the Right Places by Jenna Sutton @jsuttonauthor @BerkleyRomance

All the Right Places is the first book in a new contemporary romance series, called Riley O’Brien & Co. I loved this book. I don’t want to call it a book slump, but I have been reading a lot of 3 star books lately. Books that are fine and good reads and all that, but I just didn’t love them. All the Right Places was the first book that I have read in a week or two that made me feel the tingles of excitement while reading. And not just because the romance was great- which it was!, but because the overall story was great. The Riley O’Brien & Co. series is one that I will definitely be continuing! The romance between Amelia and Quinn is so rockin’. It is one of instant attraction and lots of slow and torturous unresolved sexual tension. It was just so much fun watching Jenna Sutton draw out the URST scenes between these two. And the story is told in their alternating points of… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Tessa Ever After by Brighton Walsh @WriteAsRain_ @BerkleyRomance

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Tessa Ever After by Brighton Walsh @WriteAsRain_ @BerkleyRomance

I bow down to Brighton Walsh. She is offically one of my favorite New Adult authors. And the Caged in Winter series is one of my favorite New Adult romances. I loved Cage and Winter so hard last year, and now Tessa and Jason have stolen my heart! I don’t even know who I liked more, and that is something that I did not expect to say before reading Tessa Ever After. I expected to love the book because Brighton Walsh writes amazing romances, but Cage and Winter were one of my favorite book couples of last year, so I didn’t think that Tessa and Jason would come close to topping them. But they did. I love them both. And before I just start to fan-girl over Brighton Walsh, I will tell you why I actually loved Tessa Ever After. Tessa is Cage’s sister, and she has had to grow up rather quickly. She got pregnant with her daughter Haley when she was 17, and it was just Tessa and her… Read more »

{Review} When We Met by @ALJacksonauthor @MollySMcAdams @AuthorTiffany King @Christina_Lee04 @BerkleyRomance

{Review} When We Met by @ALJacksonauthor @MollySMcAdams @AuthorTiffany King @Christina_Lee04 @BerkleyRomance

Yes! Thank you New Adult gods for more anthology books like When We Met! This is my very favorite kind of anthology. When we met is an anthology that follows 4 college roommates. Each of the stories is the story of how one of the ladies met their great guy. And the stories happen sequentially. So, for example, the third story is Courtney’s tale, and in it you will find reference to Misha and her guy, Darren as well as Indy and her beau Kier. Each of the roommates kind of dance around in the background of their friends stories and I love watching different authors simultaneously create their own story and characters, while working flawlessly with other authors stories and weaving them into the background of their story. It makes reading anthologies so much more fun, in my opinion. Instead of a collection of sometimes disjointed feeling stories, the common household creates a bond and theme for the book. I don’t even know that I can pick a favorite story…. Read more »

{ #Review } Caged in Winter by Brighton Walsh @WriteAsRain_ @BerkleyRomance

I loved Caged in Winter so much. And I didn’t even realize until I was done with the book that the title involved both of the two main characters names, Cade and Winter. I knew Winter, sure but I thought the title was about the cage that Winter put up around herself to keep herself from a distance from everyone else. And now I feel silly that I completely missed Cade in it.  He was totally encased by Winter. He couldn’t escape her either. Caged in Winter is an emotional ride and I loved every single up and down. Cade and Winter are magical together. And Brighton Walsh did a fantastic job telling each of their stories. I haven’t met two young people so mature and so forced into becoming adults in a while. Their situations were so similar. The details were different, but the end result was the same. They were on their own forced to grow up and take care of themselves at a very young age. (and… Read more »

{ARC Review} Virgin by Radhika Sanghani

{ARC Review} Virgin by Radhika Sanghani

This book is really tough for me to review. Some parts of this book I really loved. Like really loved. I thought they were little talked about subjects that almost every young woman has thought about or experienced in some way shape or form. Things that I think should be a must read for young women everywhere. But the main character bugged me for a lot of the first half of the book. She was whiny and self absorbed. I thought she was all the things her best friend accused her of being in the fight. And there is a problem if you are agreeing with the best friend that is being a jerk.  But I pushed that aside and powered on with the book, and overall I was really glad that I did. I loved the “vlog” that EM and EK came up with. It really was one of the highlights of the book. I thought it was witty and funny and needed. They talked about things that should… Read more »
