My thoughts… This is the second book by Author Teresa Mummert that I’ve had the pleasure to read. I really enjoyed this story. She has a great writing style and I’m addicted to reading her books. Her stories draw you in from the beginning and keep your attention until the very end. I loved both Jenn & Shane. I thought they were good for each other and good together. The attraction between the two of […]

Book Review: Forever Too Far by Abbi Glines

Man, what happened to Rush? Is it me or is he like seriously WHIPPED? This book didn’t have a whole lot going on..I think it’s mostly just for Abbi to tie up Blaire & Rush’s story and then introduce some new characters that I do believe we will be seeing again in the future. 😉 First we met Harlow, Nan’s uber-conservative, sweet and innocent half-sister. Next, we meet ‘Oh Captain, My Captain.’ Although we really […]

My thoughts… Jet is book two in the Marked Men series by Author Jay Crownover. While I enjoyed Jet & Ayden’s story, I don’t think it was quite the story Rule was. There was just something fascinating about Rule that captured my attention from the beginning. This one started out as a slow read for me, but the more I read the more enjoyable it became. Even though Jet & Ayden appear to be completely […]

My thoughts… OMG. OMG. Like If I Were You, Being Me is an amazing read! I love, love, loved this one too. This series is unbelievable and without a doubt one of my favorites. I think Ms Jones did a great job of building the story and keeping it interesting. This book is NOT a filler. There are several twists and turns. I didn’t find myself getting bored with it or skimming. It kept my […]

I’m at Target staring at the empty spot where the book I drove here for should be. It’s close to 10:00 p.m. , and I don’t have the energy to frantically look behind all of the other books on the isle like I normally would, so I do a quick sweep with my eyes for an appealing cover and land on Fated.  The girl on the pretty purple cover makes me want to run to […]

My thoughts… OMG! I could not put this book down. I was drawn in from page one and it didn’t let me go until the very end. White Trash Beautiful is so emotional. I cried several times. To me it seems that books that make you cry are typically great reads. This one didn’t disappoint. I was able to read this one in one sitting. It was that good. I loved Cass Daniels from the […]

I totally picked up the first book in this series because the glossy purple and black cover called to me. The almost alliteration of A’s in the title pleased my nerdy side, and the elegant looking woman on the cover was someone I wouldn’t mind living vicariously through. Already sold on the aesthetic appeal of the cover, I read the blurb on the back and gave a little squeal at the name Tristan (one of our main […]

My thoughts… OMG. OMG. What an amazing story! If I Were You sucked me in from page one, held me captive until the very end, and left me wanting more….so much more. This is the first novel by Author Lisa Renee Jones that I’ve had the pleasure to read and it won’t be the last. I’m hooked. If I Were You is told from Sarah’s POV. I felt like I was right there with her […]

This book was highly entertaining! It had me laughing non-stop. It also gave me some food for thought on any future break-ups, including some Steps/Rules that maybe we should all remember to follow in the future concerning possible new relationships, break ups or life in general. 😉 This was a light, funny read and I really enjoyed it. I’m glad I was given the opportunity to read and review it. 😉

My thoughts… While I really enjoyed this one it took me a long time to get to the end. It’s over 400 pages long and at times I felt myself wanting to give up on it, but when I finally did reach the end I was very happy that I stuck with it. This story is very complex and highly emotional. Nastya. She’s broken. She hides herself behind dark make-up, dark clothing, and a don’t […]

My thoughts… Ah…. I finished this one in a day. I really enjoyed! Faded is like Jaded in some aspects. It happens over a short amount of time. Things were constantly changing and I kept turning page after page as fast as I could to see what would happen next. There really isn’t any sexual scenes in this book either. It’s all pretty much PG and I keep wondering if Scarlett & Stephan are actually […]

OH H-O-L-Y CRAP. So Obsession came out on Friday (5/31), but I was lucky enough to win an ARC from the Publisher the night before so I got an early start on my reading!! This book was a great way to hold us ADULT fans of the LUX series over until the release of Origin. When I found out that JLA was releasing an adult book from the LUX universe I got super excited!! I […]

When I saw the cover of this book, I gave my imaginary friend a high-five.  An ominous looking house with a stylishly Gothic girl standing in front? Yes, please! Hannah Smith, a fiery, auburn haired 18-year-old, has been living in an attic as the companion of Lady Violet Wade for the past 15 years of her life. Hannah and Lady Violet both have ”conditions” that have kept them tucked away as outcasts and shunned by […]

My thoughts… What a way to end a two book mini series. I loved this one as well. Cole has got to be one of my favorite book boyfriends EVER. He’s simply amazing! There are many twists and turns with this story that will keep you guessing on why things are the way they are. However, I recommend that you read the first book to know exactly what’s going on with all the characters. When […]

This is a short and sweet shout out to C.J. Archer’s Spirit Medium Trilogy published last year. It’s been a while since I read these books, but felt like they deserved a rec since I will be reviewing her latest book, The Wrong Girl soon. I’ve always loved the idea of Mediums and things of the seance sort whether in books or film, so last October I went searching for something with that theme in mind. I […]

Regina’ s Review: Spirit was a bit of a ride for me. For most of this story I felt like I was breathing with cinder blocks on my chest, waiting for the next drop. I felt like I was behind a glass wall, screaming at Hunter to make the right decisions. I wanted an insta-stick worm hole that I could toss on the wall and step through to guide his thoughts.  This roller coaster ride of […]

Regina’ s Review: That moment when you’re reading a book, and a couple of chapters in something “clicks” and leaves you <insert sharp intake of breath here> Breathless? Yeah, this installment in the Elemental series gives bold significance to the title from the start. This book had a different feel than the rest for me. I felt more like a voyeur, vicariously experiencing something forbidden through the thoughts of Nick Merrick, Gabriel’s identical twin. Nick is […]
