[Review] Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

Amy's Reviews, Reviews 0 Comments

I think there is certain style one expects from a Helena Hunting book.  It has to be funny.  It has to be charming.  It has to be so sexy that you can’t read the book in a public place.  I think that Shacking Up delivers all that.  It was cute, very sexy, and parts of it had me cracking up. It’s also predictable and very cheesy. But, I think that is what I liked about Shacking Up.  It is not the kind of read that is going to make you think about it days after.  It is what is and… Read more »

[ARC Review] When It’s Real by Erin Watt

I don’t think I have stayed up all night reading a book in one sitting in a while. I have to say after my all night binge read, When It’s Real is fantastic!     I have to admit I really wanted to read this book because I love Erin Watt. I know the description sounds really cheesy almost like Justin Bieber fan fiction. I am here to say that this book is super good and super addictive. I fell in with Vaughn and Oakley so much that I could not this book down. Even though this book is about… Read more »

[Review]Bedmates by Nicole Chase

Bedmates is the first Nichole Chase book I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. Bedmates was a sweet and sexy read set in the back drop of American politics. I liked that Bedmates was really a story about two people growing up while finding a way to make their dreams come true. Sometimes it is not always about politics but finding the path to happiness that truly matters. The story is about Maddie the First Daughter of the United States. Maddie is a young college student intent on making the lives all animals better. She just doesn’t… Read more »

OMG this book is amazing!!! Like if my life didn’t get in the way I would not have put this book down amazing!!!!  I can not express how much I loved this book but I will try.     I loved Marco and he might have made a book boyfriend list I may or may not have.         The Lovely Reckless is sexy, a tear jerker, and most of all a fantastic story!!! What I loved most about this book was the message: save yourself because you are the only who can. It has been a year… Read more »

[ARC Review] Hell Breaks Loose by Sophie Jordan

I love Sophie Jordan and I will read anything she writes!!! I liked Hell Breaks Loose but sadly I didn’t love this book. It started out as something I thought I would absolutely love but it ended up just being okay.   The President’s daughter is kidnapped. Grace is being held by a bunch of low life goons. Reid has just escaped prison to kill the man who sent him there. Of course, I don’t really need to explain where the story is going from here. It is one of those the enemy of my enemy type stories. Reid has… Read more »

I just have to say Defending Taylor didn’t disappoint. I read this book in one day. It is one of those short breezy books that grab you and don’t let go until the end.       I once heard someone I think it was another adult, say they didn’t like read because the parents are never around or they look stupid. I didn’t know what to say to that because it is true the parents are hardly ever around in YA. You know what I say now: so what. Even in Gilmore Girls Rory had to go off on… Read more »

I read the first book in this series, Fly With Me, in two sittings.  Luckily, I had won a copy of Into the Blue in a giveaway so I was able to dive right into this book.  I have to say I devoured this book.  I had both books read in one weekend.  I am now in so much like with these fighter pilots now, it’s not even funny!!!   Into the Blue stars Eric, Noah’s friend from Fly With Me.  Eric and the rest of the squadron are still rolling from the events that took place at the end… Read more »

I really liked this book.   I started this book not knowing what to expect but from the page I was hooked.  It was sexy as all get out.  But, it had depth too.   That makes Fly With Me my favorite kind of romance.   I really liked this story about a whirlwind romance and deciding if you can make it work for love.       The thing I liked most about this book is that it doesn’t glamorize what being a military wife, fiancée, or girlfriend is all about.   It is not a 24hr fantasy staring a hot guy in… Read more »

[ARC Review] All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan

This story wasn’t about a guy in prison that got framed. Nor, is it a story about a man trying to solve some problem with gangs when he gets out of prison. It is a story about a guy who made and has been paying for it ever since. Was this my favorite Sophie Jordan book? No. I can’t gush and love every book she writes. There wasn’t some big mystery or nonstop action. I didn’t end up hating this book it was just a sweet romance about two people learning to open up and find love. All Chain Up… Read more »

After I have had more time to think about how I feel after reading this book, I find myself giving it more of a 3 star rating than a 4 star. I felt that the story started out strong. It is about a guy named Thomas who can’t remember a thing about his mother’s murder. He meets up with Charlotte the only person in town to give him the time of day and they begin looking into the death of his murder. I like the idea of a who done it murder mystery with some sexy romance thrown in. I… Read more »
