{Review} Saving Maverick by @Debra_Elise #BloomsburySpark

Saving Maverick is the first book in the new adult Outlaws of baseball series by Debra Elise. I love the bloomsbury spark line, but for some reason I was under the impression that it was for more young adult line of books, but this was most certainly a new adult romance. I am really excited that the spark line is branching out into (or maybe has always done) new adult romances as well. Saving Maverick is a really yummy first book in the Outlaws of baseball series. It is a fluffy romances with depth. And I can’t wait to read some more of the players stories. I already have a feeling as to another pairing, and if I am right, it is going to be a great one! Saving Maverick is told in dual narrative between Maverick and Kelsey. I really liked both Kelsey and Mav. I love a guy that knows exactly what he wants and goes after it relentlessly. I admired the heck out of Mav for just… Read more »

{Review} My Soon-To-Be Sex Life by @JudithTewes

My Soon-To-Be Sex life was flippin’ hilarious! I was totally digging Judith’s writing style. It is not always easy to make writing funny look so natural. And that is how this book felt- naturally fun and funny. I would recommend this book to all lovers of young adult. I know I recently reviewed a book called Virgin and it too was focused on losing virginity, but this book was completely different. This one is appropriate for older teens, and the character is very age appropriate. There are also many, many other things going on in the story line than just her soon-to-be sex life. Charlie wants to be a screenwriter, so peppered throughout the book are outtakes from her past experiences with guys. It was beyond funny and adorable. I loved how Judith Tewes incorporated those into the story. But there is also so much heart in Charlie. And depth in this story. Through the story line with Charlie’s mom and especially with her grandfather. A few times the scenes… Read more »
