{Review} The Winter People by @RebekahLPurdy

{Review} The Winter People by @RebekahLPurdy

The Winter People was great. It ended up being very different than I thought it would be. I’m not going to ruin the book by telling just what brand of fantasy or magic this was. I had an inkling while I was reading, and maybe it will be way more obvious to everyone else reading, but not knowing exactly what was going on or what exactly everyone was, was part of the magic of reading The Winter People. And it made me yearn to read more books like it. I really enjoyed the cold wintery atmosphere that Rebekah created. I will warn you now, there is a love triangle- or really a love Quadrangle is more accurate. At one point there were so many guys that I didn’t know what on earth was going on. But that feeling quickly passed and I was down to two viable guys. I will say now that I did go back and forth a couple of times throughout the book, but I am very… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Keeping Mr. Right Now by @RobinBielman @RomanceIsBliss

{Review+Giveaway} Keeping Mr. Right Now by @RobinBielman @RomanceIsBliss

  Entangled’s line of “Bliss” books always put me in a good mood. They are feel good romances- plain and simple. keeping Mr. Right Now was great! It was the perfect mixture of sweet, sassy romantic fun that I needed. I find myself turning to these happy romantic “feel good” reads when I am particularly stressed, and Keeping Mr. Right Now did the trick, planting a big smile on my face the whole time I was reading it. The plot is a rather simple one, but when it is well done it is a plot line that works spectacularly for me. Hot guy is used to getting any girl he wants and is kind of a player. He is the “big man on campus” or in this case, a world class surfer. Enter a quiet and reserved girl that is so far from his normal type. There is normally some awesome clashing of characters and lots of chemistry.  Call me a sucker, but I just love watching a guy meet… Read more »

{Review} Fiancee For Hire by @tawnafenske @LovestruckEP

{Review} Fiancee For Hire by @tawnafenske @LovestruckEP

Fiancee for Hire is the second book in the Front and Center series, but each book is a complete standalone. I have not read the first book, Marine for Hire yet, but now that I caught a glimpse of the characters that it is about, I can’t wait to read it! I am really loving series that have each book work as a standalone that focuses on a different set of characters. The overall series links together by the character connections. It is pretty cool. I normally never read a series out of order, but I have noticed that I have been doing it a couple of times lately with series that are structured like this, and each time has been a positive experience and left me wanting to read the other books. Fiancee for Hire is no different. I loved it and I can’t wait to read Marine for Hire. Tawna Fenski writes a great romance. Mac is a serious work work work guy. And his work is top… Read more »

{ARC Review} Meeting His Match by Katee Robert @katee_robert @entangledpub

{ARC Review} Meeting His Match by Katee Robert @katee_robert @entangledpub

Meeting his Match is a standalone title, as well as the first book in the Match Me series. It is from Entangled’s Lovestruck line and I think I have found one of my new favorite imprints from Entangled. These books are perfect for when I am in a romantic kind of mood. Ok, let me set the stage for you. Reagan sends her successful professional Matchmaker of a best friend down to help out her brother in law find his soul mate. Caine is a complete workaholic, and hasn’t really made time for anything else in so many years. I really liked the premise of the story, it was simple, but it worked oh so well. Addison is a force of nature. She just sweeps into Caine’s life and kind of starts mixing everything up. I loved it. It was exactly what he needed. She really was like a breath of fresh air in his life. I  was immediately drawn to the fire that they each brought out in the… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Going Down in Flames by Chris Cannon @entangledteen @ccannonauthor

{ARC Review+Giveaway} Going Down in Flames by Chris Cannon @entangledteen @ccannonauthor

Going Down in Flames is about Bryn- a girl who can shapeshift into a dragon. I loved it! I don’t think I have ever read a young adult book where the main characters are dragons. It was interesting because none of it felt overdone or standard. Every piece of information that the author gave us really added to my overall picture of the story. Bryn gets shipped off to basically the dragon boarding school, where you learn all about your newly manifested dragon powers and basically get prepped for your life within dragon society. Bryn is a unique case because she is the product of crossbreading- something that the Directorate (think government full of Umbridges) told everyone wasn’t possible. Her father is a red dragon and her mother is a blue dragon. Bryn became a little bit of each, which means that she has lots of really cool abilities. People from the clans pretty much hate Bryn on sight. Not all of them, but most of them. I felt bad… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} By Jove by Marissa Doyle

{Review+Giveaway} By Jove by Marissa Doyle

  By Jove is a mythology romance that takes place in a Boston University. Theo is a graduate student studying Latin (and greek and roman get woven in through other members of the classics department.) It is a mythology and history nerds dream book. I loved the academic setting, and the mythology buff in my squeed over the idea of a whole classics department being taught by actual gods and goddesses. How cool would that be? I loved guessing who everyone was. Some were easy to figure out, and others were a little tougher, but it all made reading the book more fun. Marissa Doyle did a fantastic job with her attention to detail. Even the clothes and food and drink were added into the story properly. It was excellent. It is just how I would imagine Gods living in the modern world. I loved the opulence of their parties. Theo is my kind of girl. Nerdy and not at all ashamed by how interested she is in learning. It… Read more »

{ARC Review} Love Potions by Michelle M. Pillow

{ARC Review} Love Potions by Michelle M. Pillow

Love Potions is the first book in the Warlocks MacGregor series. It follows one of the MacGregor sons, Erik. I think that each of the books will follow a different member of the MacGregor clan, which will be very exciting because it is easy to see from this story how tight knit their family is. It is also so much fun to watch them joke around with each other. The MacGregors are a bunch of pranksters. And throw magic into the mix, and well let’s just say that some of their pranks get a little inventive. And all of the MacGregors are as hot as sin, so you know their romances are going to be great. And Erik’s certainly was. Erik is used to getting everything and everyone that he wants. Girls have a tendency to throw them him, so when he meets his next door neighbor and she doesn’t give into him right away, he seems to be a little off kilter. I liked that Lydia was so strong… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} The Warrior by @victoriascottya @entangledteen

Dante, oh Dante- how can I express how much I love thee? This final installment of The Dante Walker trilogy has been all I expected and more. It might even be my favorite book of the trilogy. It is right up there with the first book, and I loved that one so much. Dante Walker is such a complicated character. Some people love him, some people can’t stand him and some people want to have his babies. I, for one, can’t get enough of him. I fall into categories 1 and 3 soundly. I love how complicated and flawed Victoria Scott made him. He is a bad boy that can charm the pants off of anyone. I freakin’ love his humor. But I also love the insight you get into him. His doubts and fears that he keeps buried in his head. Those made me swoon almost as much as the romance. There is just something about Dante. Actually, to sum up- I think Dante himself says it best: “You’re… Read more »

{ARC Review} If Only by A.J. Pine

If Only by A.J. Pine ebook, 342 pages Expected publication: March 24th 2014 by Entangled Publishing Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance Source: eARC from Publisher Summary: Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong. It’s been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it’s been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now. Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend. Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life… Read more »
