{Review+Giveaway} Totally, Sweetly Irrevocably by @KiraArcherbooks @entangledpub

{Review+Giveaway} Totally, Sweetly Irrevocably by @KiraArcherbooks @entangledpub

Totally, Sweetly Irrevocably is the second book in the Sweet Love series by Kira Archer. The Sweet Love series is a series of standalone romantic comedies. I never read the first book, so I am not sure how much over lap there really is in the series, but Totally, Sweetly Irrevocably read as a standalone. I wasn’t lost or confused at any point. I loved this book. It put a big smile on my face. I loved the dichotomy between crazy Gina and orderly Rick. Gina blows into Rick’s neatly organized life like a hurricane. She really is a force of nature, and it cracked me up watching Rick at first try to tame her, and finally just try to go with it. I felt like I could see his jaw ticking while he was dealing with her a few times. I loved it. Rick first meets Gina because he is called in to investigate a peeping tom, who turns out to be Gina. Who is hosting her own little… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} No Falling Allowed by Melissa West @MB_West @EPEmbrace

{Review+Giveaway} No Falling Allowed by Melissa West @MB_West @EPEmbrace

No Falling Allowed is a new adult contemporary romance by Melissa West. It is the second book in the No Kissing Allowed series. I liked the first book, No Kissing Allowed, but I didn’t love it as much as some of Melissa’s other books. The good news is, I liked No Falling Allowed a lot more than I liked the first book.  No Falling Allowed is a fun, quick and flirty new adult romance. Each of the books in the series can be read as a standalone. I think fans of the first book would enjoy reading about Cameron and Aiden because they do pop up from time to time in this story, and we get to see what is next for them. However; if you are new to the series, you might want to consider reading No Falling Allowed first, because I really enjoyed this one a good bit more than No Kissing Allowed. No Falling Allowed is Grace’s story. We met Grace in the first book, but we… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Life after Juliet by Shannon Lee Alexander @shanlalexander @EntangledTEEN

{Review+Giveaway} Life after Juliet by Shannon Lee Alexander @shanlalexander @EntangledTEEN

Life After Juliet is a young adult novel by Shannon Lee Alexander. It is a companion novel to Love and Other Unknown Variables. I had Love and Other Unknown Variables on my to be read list since before its’ release, but I never got around to reading it. However, as soon as I read the summary for Life After Juliet I knew I had to read this book. It deals with subject matter that is really speaking to me at the moment. So I figured I would be fine reading it alone. But after looking at some reviews and starting the book, I realized that wasn’t really the case. Could I have read Life After Juliet without first having read Love and Other Unknown Variables? Yes, I think I could have. And I think I would have been fine. However, after reading about 20 pages of Life After Juliet, I decided not to chance it and to read Love and Other Unknown Variables first. And I am very, very glad… Read more »

{ARC Review} Driven to Temptation by Melia Alexander

{ARC Review} Driven to Temptation by Melia Alexander

Driven to Temptation is a new adult/adult crossover novel by Melia Alexander. This is the first book I have read from this author, and I have to say I liked it but I didn’t love it. It is a super quick read, both in length and in amount of time passed in the actual story. I liked Driven To Temptation. I thought it was a fun read, but it ended up being just ok for me because I felt like all of it was too rushed. Driven to Temptation is the story of Delaney and Aiden. I really liked Aiden and I mostly liked Delaney. I loved a lot of things about Delaney actually, but she had her moments of annoyance. I loved how smart she is, how driven, and how she goes out of her way to show people at work what she is capable of. But I found her to be a bit naive. Maybe naive isn’t the right word choice- she is more childishly stubborn. Take her… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Rule Book by Jennifer Blackwood @Jen_Blackwood @EPEmbrace

{Review+Giveaway} The Rule Book by Jennifer Blackwood @Jen_Blackwood @EPEmbrace

The Rule Book is the first book in the New Adult (Or maybe adult- I consider this one a cross over that would appeal to readers of both age groups) in the Rule Breakers series by Jennifer Blackwood. The Rule Breakers reminded me of The Devil Wears Prada with a male boss, and a whole lot more romance. I really enjoyed it! And I want more. Specifically, I want more from this couple pairing, so I am hoping the next book is about them too. (Side note: I don’t think it will be, but I am keeping my fingers crossed anyway…) Lainey and Brogan are the two main characters. Lainey is a recent grad student looking to move up in a PR/social media management firm. Brogan is the super young CEO of the company, and he has a rule for just about everything. Including no garlic in the office. Lainey seems to think all of the rules are crazy. I really liked the setup. It felt like Devil Wears Prada… Read more »

{Review+Kindle Fire Giveaway} Seducing the Fireman by @jbondswrites @Barclay_PR

{Review+Kindle Fire Giveaway} Seducing the Fireman by @jbondswrites @Barclay_PR

Seducing the Fireman is the third book in the risky business series by Jennifer Bonds. I have not read any of the previous books in the series yet, but  it is my understanding that they are really standalones and I don’t think that any of the characters overlap. Either way, I had no problem following the story or characters in Seducing the Fireman. It was a nicely wrapped up contemporary romance. I had a great time reading Seducing the Fireman. It made me want to read the other books in the Risky Business series. Seducing the Fireman is told in dual narrative between Becca (AKA Frankie) and Jax. I really liked Jax. I think the book name is a bit misleading because it sure seemed to me that Jax was the one trying to win Becca over the whole time. She is a stubborn little thing. A bit too stubborn in my opinion. I liked her, but honestly she dealt out her fair share of abuse to Jax- from standing… Read more »

{ARC Review} Rush by @AuthorShaeRoss @EPEmbrace

{ARC Review} Rush by @AuthorShaeRoss @EPEmbrace

Rush is a standalone new adult contemporary romance by Shae Ross. This is the second book that I have read, and loved by Shae so far. (The first was Pretty Smart Girls: Lace Up) She has this awesome knack for writing great characters. (I have been on a roll lately with wonderful chemistry in the romances I have been reading. Which is perfectly timed after about a month of just ok books.) Rush is a college sports romance featuring the school quarterback and the captain of the girls soccer team, and just like in Pretty Smart Girls, there was also a theme of guys v. girls in this book. Rush is told in dual narrative between Priscilla and Preston, and from the very first moment I knew I was going to love them. The first scene in the book shows them at a Halloween party and they are dressed up as chewbacca and little bo peep. They cracked me up in that scene, and then the you know what all… Read more »

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

Romancing the Nerd is the second book in the Nerd series by Leah Rae Miller. Each of the books can be read as a standalone, and while the first book looks really cute and has been on my TBR pile since its’ release, I have yet to read it. However, I had no problem jumping right in with this book. I think the connection with the two is Dan. He was a minor secondary character in The Summer I became a Nerd. I loved Dan. I really liked Zelda too, but Dan held a special place in my heart. As is my preference with contemporary romances, Romancing the Nerd is told in dual narrative between Zelda and Dan. This book is cute and really funny read. Zelda and Dan are both nerds at heart, and while Zelda is also a what she would consider a nerd on the outside, Dan is a nerd turned popular jock. They each have had a crush on the other for years, which is adorable…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Crazy Stupid Fauxmance by @shelleeroberts @EntangledTeen

{Review+Giveaway} Crazy Stupid Fauxmance by @shelleeroberts @EntangledTeen

Crazy Stupid Fauxmance is the third book in the Creative HeArts series, and the first book in the Mariely and Cabot trilogy by Shelleeroberts. I have still not read the first book in the series, which is the first book in the Sloane and Tru series, but I have read book 2- How Willa Got Her Groove Back, which was the first book in the Willa and Finn trilogy and I have to say, I freakin love the way this series is done. Let me try and break it down for you, because it can be kind of confusing. The Creative HeArts series is all set at the same performing arts high school in Texas. There will be 9 books in the series, and it will center around 3 different couples. Each of the couples will get their own trilogy, and each trilogy is written by a different author. But the books in the overall Creative HeArts series will rotate through each one of the three couples, so no two… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Trial by Fire by Chris Cannon @entangledteen @ccannonauthor

{Review+Giveaway} Trial by Fire by Chris Cannon @entangledteen @ccannonauthor

Please Note: this review may contain spoilers for the first two books in the series. If you have not read those books yet, you can check out my reviews of them here: Book 1- Going Down in Flames Book 2- Bridges Burned Trial by Fire is the third book in the young adult paranormal series, Going Down in Flames. Like the previous two books in the series, this one picks up right where book 2, Bridges Burned leaves off, so be sure to read the previous books before starting this one. I liked Trial by Fire, but I think it is my least favorite installment of all the books so far. It is a close call, and to put this in perspective, I love this series so much, that even though this book is my least favorite so far, I still loved it! Bryn is back at school and dealing with a lot. In fact, all of the characters are. I felt for her, for Rhiannon, Garett and Valmont. (who,… Read more »
