Fling Club is the first book in the Serendipity Series by Tara Brown. This book was so much fun! As you will see below, it was influenced by Cruel Intentions and Gossip Girl, and being that I am huge fans of both of those movies/series, I knew this was going to be the perfect fun summer read. And it totally was. I am already itching for the next book in the Serendipity Series! I will say, that while it shouldn’t come as a surprise, a book that is inspired by Gossip Girl does have a flair for the dramatic. So if that is not your thing in romances, then this might not be the book for you. But if you don’t mind overly dramatic characters, and can read the book for what it is- a guilty pleasure fun read, then I think you will enjoy it. We meet a lot of characters in Fling Club, but the one that sticks out the most is Cheery. I do love a good revenge plot,… Read more »

Please Note: this is the second book in a series, that should be read in order. If you are new to the Wingmen Inc. series, first check out my review of book one- The Matchmaker’s Playbook HERE The Matchmaker’s Replacement is the second book in a new adult contemporary romance series, called Wingmen Inc., by Rachel Van Dyken. As the title and series name suggests, the series centers around two college friends that have a side business where they set up women with their crushes. I read, and enjoyed The Matchmaker’s Playbook, and while technically speaking the stories can be read as standalones, because the two friends are very integral in each others stories, and in their business, I feel like I got much more out of the story having read Ian’s story first. Ian is present throughout The Matchmaker’s Replacement and it was kind of cool to see how he is now with Blake, knowing how he was before. That will be even more interesting with Lex. I used… Read more »
The Matchmaker’s Playbook is the first book in a new adult contemporary romance series, called Wingmen Inc., by Rachel Van Dyken. As the title and series name suggests, the story centers around two college friends that have a side business where they set up women with their crushes. The whole book had a very Hitch vibe (you know, the Will Smith rom com) They don’t advertise, you just pass around a card when you are done to a “women in need.” The main man of Wingmen Inc. is Ian, and the book is told in dual narrative between him and Blake. Blake is an athlete through and through and she goes to Ian for his help catching the eye of her childhood friend, and crush. Ian ends up falling for Blake. Don’t worry, I am not spoiling anything for anyone, you can tell all of this from the very first line in the summary. It is a very cutesey setup, and one that I really enjoyed. I can’t wait to… Read more »
Today I have the Author of Gates of Thread and Stone here to share with us the top 5 Reasons that she loves Fantasy! 5 Reasons I Love Fantasy 1. Magic Actual, tangible magic (although books in general are magical things 😀 ). I have yet to come across a fantasy I haven’t enjoyed that didn’t somehow make magic feel shiny and new again. I love rediscovering magic in each book: its limitations, its functions, its manifestations. Every author makes it his or her own, which is some top level sorcery. 2. Unlikely creatures Everything is better with unicorns. Or dragons. Or any other world-specific creature the author brings to life. Fantasy worlds don’t just contain politics and magic. They’re also populated by curious beasties 😀 3. New worlds I’m constantly impressed with authors like G.R.R. Martin who create rich, fully realized worlds, complete with histories that inform their countries and political systems. It’s awe inspiring to fall into these worlds with entirely new continents and mythologies and customs. It’s… Read more »
