I liked parts of this book but there were parts I didn’t like. It wasn’t the best book I have read or the worst. It was just okay. I think I was just looking for something a little bit more. I am giving A Million Miles Away three stars and it was just a meh and shrug kind of book.     I know I am going to say this and shocker when I say it but I wish there was a bit more angst. A bit more drama. The girl pretended to be her dead twin sister for almost… Read more »

I liked the other Chaos books. I freaking loved this book!!!  This review is going to be short and sweet because otherwise it will be nothing but a jumbled mess of my love for this book.  I am giving this book five stars because I want to sing its praises. Ride Steady became a favorite because it is so sweet and genuine. I loved the relationship between Carissa and Joker. He could have gone down a bad road growing up with a dad that abused him and it took a couple of years but he got his act together joined one of the good… Read more »

I read this book in one day because I liked it so much. I liked the humor, the heart break and, of course, the sizzling chemistry this book has to offer. I like when big sexy confident athletes give the babbling sometimes socially awkward girl a chance. There is something to be said for a guy that smiles and laughs when a girl is babbling about charming serial killers in the first five minutes of meeting him. I like a guy that will jump through some major hoops like writing a love poem, taking a sexy pic on red velvet… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Wild Hearts by Jessica Burkhart

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 »

This book is actually a novella and so my review is going to short just like this cute short story. I really liked this story it was adorable, sweet and sexy. I am giving it four stars because it left me in a nice happy place.     I have been a reading rut for a week now. I think this story was just I needed to pull me out of it. It was a short story so I was able to finish it in one night. It was also, an entertaining romance. I am sucker for books about athletes… 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 »

[ARC Review] Gone Too Far by Natalie D. Richards

  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 »

[Arc Review] The Quick and the Undead by Kimberly Raye

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 »

[Review] As Long As You Love Me by Ann Aguirre

This book is a standalone story but it is part of series about three roommates. While I liked I Want it That Way, I liked this book better because there was just something about the characters that I could really relate to. The main character Lauren has major social anxiety. It has become such an issue that she has to quit school and go back home before her anxiety turns into a major drinking problem. I can relate so well to social anxiety because I have some of the same issues. While mine probably aren’t as debilitating as Lauren’s it… Read more »

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 »
