[Audiobook Review] The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings

I actually got this book as an e-Arc, but I didn’t have time to read it so I bought the audio book right when it came it out. My first thought after finishing the audio book of The Murder Complex was I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. It was one of those books that was either very interesting or very slow. I don’t know if it was just me, but sometimes I found myself right on the edge of my seat and other times I found myself tuning out the book and running my grocery list… Read more »

Today I continue my foray into contemporary romance with Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae.  This book is YA contemporary that is cute, sweet, heart-breaking at times, and oh so romantic.  This review will be short and sweet for a book that is the same.  Wish You Were Italian is about a young woman who is kind of forced to go to Italy, the summer before her senior year, to attend a program in art history.  The only problem, Pippa is not that into art history. She is ready for this summer to be the worst summer of her… Read more »

[Review] Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

Let me start this review off by saying that I am a huge Kelley Armstrong fangirl.  I have been a fan since I first read Bitten many moons ago.  That being said, I don’t think Sea of Shadows will go up there as my favorite Kelley Armstrong book of all time.  I liked Sea Shadows well enough, but I didn’t love it.  This book had action, good world building, and of course a little kissing.  All the things that should make me love it, but it in the end it was just a decent read. Sea of Shadows is Kelley… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

What do you get when you mix Gargoyles and 1899 France?  A pretty decent gothic horror novel called The Beautiful and the Cursed.  Sorry, but this review will be short and sweet.  The Beautiful and the Cursed is about two sisters who live in 1899 and their mother has always dreamed of running a gallery in France.  With the permission of her husband, of course, their mother moves herself and her daughters to France for the summer.  Their brother has already gone to France ahead of them to scout out locations, secure the place, and hire servants.  He finds them… Read more »

[Review] Burn For Me by Cynthia Eden

Burn For Me is a fast paced high octane thrill ride. It is so corny and full of sexy happy fun times I couldn’t put it down. The best way I can describe Burn For Me is think of one of those silly SYFY channel movies, Ice Road Nightmare or Ghost Shark, meets late night Cinemax Channel.   Burn For Me is about a reporter who goes under cover at a government run testing facility. She discovers that not every subject is there voluntarily. Eve sets out to bring down the men running this facility. On her first day she… Read more »

[Review] Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

So my dive into contemporary YA novels continues with Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens. Only this time it is with a book that has a much darker and at most times emotional story line. The story is about Alexi, a girl struggling with a dark secret. The book opens on a funeral, and the day Alexi decides to befriend Bodee at this mom’s funeral. Alexi and Bodee connect because they both have stories to share. Stories that will change not only their lives, but the lives of those around them. These stories and secrets are so life changing that… Read more »

[ARC Review] Wallflower Gone Wild by Maya Rodale

First, let me say that I absolutely loved the first book, The Wicked Wallflower. I am a sucker for shy wallflowers and the irresistible rakes that fall for them. I don’t know why I really really liked Wallflower Gone Wild, but I didn’t love it. This book is about Oliva, the least likely to misbehave. All her life Oliva has been told that is she stands up straighter, goes to all the right parties, makes polite conversation, and pretty much follows all the rules her overbearing mother sets, then the men will line up to marry such a well behaved… Read more »

[ARC Review] Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

It’s official, after finishing Better Off Friends I am now an Elizabeth Eulberg fangirl. I want to shout from the rooftops and gush to anybody that comes near me how good this book is. The best way to describe Better Off Friends is that it is like a teen version of When Harry Met Sally. The book starts when the main characters are just kids in middle school. Macallan’s mom has recently passed away and Levi is the new kid in school and both of them are in need of someone to lean on. The book follows them through middle… Read more »
