I started this audiobook at work. I liked it so much that I could not put it down. I finished reading it when I got home from work. Wild Hearts was just so sweet and incredibly romantic that I could not put it down. I think there is just something about two people falling in love for the first time that it fills me up with so much good feelings and happiness.   Wild Hearts is about Brie a girl that has lived all over the place because her dad is a land developer. They end up in a very small ranching… Read more »

I kind of actually liked this book and didn’t think it was as bad as some of the other reviews I had seen. It was a fast paced read that I was able to finish quickly. I think the story is more of3.5 read because while I liked the overall story I did feel like Maddie could have maybe done more to help with the investigation. I liked Maddie, she did cry a lot, but there was a lot going on in her life. The story felt a little like the other side of an adult mystery novel. Her uncle… Read more »

  I liked this book because it was an okay read. It was an easy read even though I didn’t really care who the mysterious vigilante was. It was just one those books that quick and I liked but I didn’t think it was the best thing since sliced bread. It was a bit predictable at times and I think I was expecting more of a thriller when I went into this book. The book is about Piper who finds a notebook full of scandals about her fellow students. Then one day she over hears some popular jock guys hassling… Read more »

I grabbed this one from Netgalley because I wanted something different, and fluffy. Something akin to potato chips or popcorn. I didn’t want to have to commit to anything too much. I just wanted it to be, and to fluff about being ridiculous. This book hit the mark in some aspects of that, and then fell flat in others. I was looking for vampire cowboys, and I got vampire cowboys, but the execution of said vampire cowboys was lacking. Honestly, the first chunk of the book was a lot of fun. We met the main characters, and learned plenty about… Read more »

[ARC Review] Hard to Come By by Laura Kaye

I know I have said this before but I have become a big fan of the Hard Ink series. I like that each book focuses on one guy in the team but is just a piece in the overall story line of the series. In Hard to Come By the focus is Marz. I have liked Marz since the first book because he is easy going guy that will lay down his life to protect the ones he loves. I also like Marz because I don’t know while he can get emotional there is nothing emo about him. Plus, I… Read more »

I liked this short story in the Hard Ink Series. It was sweet and it was it also like a nice reprieve in the overall story line. The series is about five men who are ex-military Special Forces. In the first book the daughter of commander who betrayed them and cost them their careers shows up asking for help. The five guys plus some extra friends band back together to find help the daughter while clearing their name. The story line is kind of like A-Team meets a romance novel. This short is all about Easy. He starts having feelings… Read more »

I grew up on sappy romantic movies and novels. For me, these stories about hope, love, and happy endings are my bread and butter. You could say I am a fool for love. The Fine Art of Pretending does not disappoint for it is a story I loved and it made my sappy romantic heart swoon with joy. It was a story that sucked me in and didn’t let go. I thought I would just start by reading one chapter and before I knew it, in a matter of hours, I had the entire book read. The Fine Art of… Read more »

[ARC Review] Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

I ended up really liking this book. I am all about books that promote girl power.     I have these read these types of books before about the tough as nails girl going to military academy and having to prove she can keep up with the boys. Don’t get me wrong, I these types books are awesome because girls can do whatever they set their minds too. What set Rites of Passage apart was that isn’t what just a girl proving herself in the face of bullies; but a girl caught up in a mystery that could bring down… Read more »

[Manga Monday] Ouran High School Host Club

I thought that to usher in the school year, we’d look at a manga centering upon school life. But this isn’t your typical slice-of-life. This is Ouran High School Host Club. Ouran High School Host Club was written by Bisco Hatori, and serialized in LaLa magazine, then in America in Viz’s Shojo Beat. The manga’s distribution extends to England, France, China, Austrailia, and even Singapore. It became excessively popular, and still has a fierce following in certain Anime conventions. An anime was released by Nippon Television in Japan, and Funimation in America, and while it lasts two seasons that are quite faithful to… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

If I had to sum The Hook Up with just a few words it would be: Hot! Hot! Hot! This book was smoking hot. It is not the type of book you want to read on a plane, train, or well anywhere in public. It is the kind of book that is best read in private because take my word for it, it will make you blush. I liked The Hook Up, but then I think I like anything Kristen Callihan writes. I think she could write a picture book and I would still be like oh wow I really… Read more »
