Push and Shove (Ghost Bird Series #6): World Cup Edition+GIVEAWAY!

July 13, 2014 10 Comments Regina

You can find my previous Academy posts and reviews here. Sometimes you’re hot because you’ve been playing futbol in Brazil in tropical  temperatures. And sometimes you’re hot because you’ve been reading a C.L. Stone book. C.L. Stone is a dominatrix with her pen in Push and Shove, whipping out the hot and heavy in full force. You can’t blame a girl for playing the field and that’s exactly what Sang does in this latest installment […]

This book made me feel embarrassed to be a Texan. It reminded me of every time I cringe when I see a national commercial showing guys and gals wearing cowboy hats and Wranglers, driving out to their Texas ranches in their Chevy trucks at five a.m. It’s why my cousins in New York can’t believe I drive a Honda and don’t raise cattle for a living. I feel like Texas was demonized in this novel, […]

Think. Pink. And Paladins. This book filled my head with all kinds of glittery, pastel, satin-y, sequined images punctuated with spiked heels and daggers. Not just because of the ballerina-pink cover but because of the bouncy, bubble gum like dialogue and scenes. Rachel Hawkins says she pitched this book to her agent as Legally Blonde meets Terminator but I would  pitch it as Legally Blonde meets 1992’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Harper Price is a smart […]

          I have reddish-brown hair and the palest skin that blushes fiercely, all the way from my chest to my forehead. Eden is our main chick and she shares her name with a couple of other things besides the title in this tale of time travel and romance.  I found her to be a sensible and likable character; a fair skinned beauty who makes the same mistake most  high school girls […]

My thoughts… I have been waiting, and waiting to read this book. When I noticed it on Netgalley and read the synopsis I knew I HAD to read it. I was happy that I got approved to read and review it. The is the first story by author Elizabeth Scott that I’ve read. This story captured my attention from beginning and held it until the very end. I didn’t skim through pages at all. I […]

My thoughts… Omigosh! I loved this book so much!!! This is a fantastic series. One of my favorite young adult series. Crash Into You didn’ t disappoint. The storyline was intriguing. The characters and the situation they were faced were realistic. I just loved this story overall. The hero is Isaiah. He has been a secondary character in the first two books. I was so excited to get my hands on this one because I […]

My thoughts… This book was amazing. I loved it so much! Holder has got to be one of the best heroes I had the privilege to read about. Losing Hope is written in Holders POV. I know that seems to be the new thing these days. Authors writing a companion novels in the leading males POV. I’ve heard some negative things about this as well as positive. Normally the deciding factor for me is if […]

My thoughts… Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I loved this book. At first I was a little worried that this book wouldn’t live up to the first book. Sometimes that happens. The more I read though, the more I learned that Falling Into Us is just as amazing as book one. The story is told from both Jason & Becca’s POV. Both are secondary characters in the first book entitled Falling Into You. I loved getting to […]

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 […]
