Review: Motion by Penny Reid

Motion by Penny Reid
One week.
Home alone.
Girl genius.
Unrepentant slacker.
Big lie.
What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona is a smart girl and figured everything out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at fifteen, finish college at eighteen, and start your PhD program at nineteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled. Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.

Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.

Laws of Physics is the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series; Laws of Physics parts 1 (MOTION) & 2 (SPACE) end with a cliffhanger.

Review: Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott

Long Live the Beautiful Hearts by Emma Scott
Never again would I allow my heart to become the plaything of someone else.
Never again would I let a man (or men) come between me and my goals.
Never again would I love without feeling the fullness of that love in return.
Not until I knew it was real. And if that took me a lifetime to find, so be it.

Those were my vows, and after all that had happened with Connor and Weston, I was determined to keep them. To protect my heart.
And then he came home, and my vows became his promises.

He held my heart in his hands with reverence and care.
He helped me find my soul’s greatest purpose in life.
He loved me with a love so pure and vibrant, I knew I’d never feel anything like it in a hundred lifetimes.
It was real.

Until it wasn’t.
Until it all came crashing down when I discovered the deep love I thought I’d found was nestled in a web of lies—so soft and silken I hadn’t noticed it was there.
Until it was too late.

Review: Bring Down the Stars by Emma Scott

January 29, 2019

Bring Down the Stars by Emma Scott
I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.

Review: Beauty and the Billionaire by Lauren Landish

Beauty and the Billionaire by Lauren Landish
Ruthless Bastard. White Knight.
But I just call him “boss.”

Thomas Goldstone.
A man of billion dollar deals in custom-tailored suits, he demands more than your best.

He’s scary. Driven. Haunted by inner demons that have taken him to the brink.
But beneath the arrogant, controlling façade lies a heart of gold.
It makes me want to solve him one growly, messy piece at a time.
To be the only one who sees the truth of the man.

But I’m . . . me.
A pink-haired, anime-loving, data-crunching geek with an office in the basement of Goldstone HQ.
My chances with the big boss? Statistically insignificant.

His burning gaze and clenched jaw say otherwise though. Gives me hope and ignites a flame so hot my glasses fog up.
I shouldn’t mix business with pleasure.
Shouldn’t tempt the beast upstairs.
Shouldn't keep wondering . . .

Do fairy tales really come true?

Review: Enzo by K. Webster

January 27, 2019

Enzo by K. Webster Jenna’s grown up in the system.
Forced to be tough, wary, and hard.

She’s only been able to count on herself.
Until Enzo.
He’s much older and responsible for looking after her.
What should be a job to him, evolves into much more.

Late night phone calls.
Lingering touches.
A forbidden fire that burns brighter each day.

Everything about him exudes strength.
His will to protect her is more than she could ever ask for.
Sadly, though, even heroes have their limitations.

But she doesn’t need a hero.
She just needs him.

It’s really hard to save a guy’s life when he keeps running from you.

You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus.

Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy—and perfectly sane—before I was tasked with keeping Declan Moss alive. It was a thankless job until the moment that my panties dropped and his delicious smirk found his way in between my thighs.

Hello, toe-curling ecstasy. Goodbye, professional boundaries. And suddenly, there’s a new danger to avoid: the falling of my heart.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After re-reading this book, I had to change my review. I don't know if I was going through something the first go round or what, but I actually enjoyed it this time. I'm leaving my previous review below as a reminder that some books DO deserve a second chance. This was definitely one of them.

Wyatt - a championship racer, he took advantage of all of the perks his lifestyle offered. His days were filled with women and the fame brought him everything he thought he was looking for... until Circe.

Dual POV - 1st person
Heat: 4
Type: Volume 4 of the Blood Bond Saga
Format: eARC provided by Bare Naked Words
Publisher: Waterhouse Press

Vampires can’t levitate. At least that’s what Dante Gabriel always thought, until he finds himself floating above his bed along with his lover, Erin Hamilton. As he continues to exhibit unusual powers, more memories from his time in captivity surface, leaving him fearing what he might have done while imprisoned. When a new and unexpected temptation arises, he finds himself unable to resist.
Erin aches for Dante and wants more than anything for him to find peace. As they uncover clue after clue in their attempt to find the missing women and solve the puzzle of Dante’s past, she is more determined than ever to put an end to their struggle, even if it means putting herself in harm’s way.
After an ominous visit with Bea, the voodoo priestess, Dante knows what he must do, and he must do it alone. First, though, he will make Erin truly his and take the sustenance he needs to get him through his next battle. But will his love for her be enough to save him when his nemesis is finally unmasked?

Review: Unhinged by Helen Hardt

Unhinged (Blood Bond Saga #4-6)Unhinged by Helen Hardt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've come to understand a bit more about the blood bond that Dante and Erin share. I wasn't sure how she'd react when she found out exactly who Dante was. Erin can be so smart in some instances and quite dumb in others. So her reaction was something I was definitely looking out for. There were other moving parts involved in their story, and events that helped to push the plot along, however, the core of this story is still very much about the characters themselves. Dante was as darling as ever and I'm waiting to see if I'm right about the female vampire who almost ruined his life.

Erin still drove me absolutely nuts, but thankfully my sweetheart Dante found a way to dominate the narrative. Other vampires, origin and identities unknown, are sampling the delicacy that is Erin's blood. Dante is determined to find out who keeps going after her and to find out more about the woman who kept him captive for so many years. He's not sure who to trust or even what his next steps should be, but what he does know is that nothing and no one, not even Erin herself, is going to keep him from his true love. This book was full of mystery and intrigue, but the author also left plenty of romance within its pages. I still think I'm right about Dante's captor and I think some people in Erin's life are more than they seem. I wonder if my assumptions will gain any clarity in the next part of this series.

But then the last battle kept me away for five years . . .

After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town.

Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

The only thing better than a book? A cart full of them! - Anonymous

If you can argue with this quote, why are we friends? Every time I get paid, the first thing I think of, after feeding and sheltering my kids, is how many books am I going to buy. I don't care where I'm getting them from, as long as I get them. I have a HUGE list of books I NEED to buy and slowly but surely I'm getting them. And yes, this list is constantly being added to and I DON'T CARE!!

It’s not a wicked world that drives a man to sin, it’s a deranged mind. Baptized in dirty water by Satan himself, I’ve spent my whole life fighting the good fight, searching for the light in the darkness of insanity. Now, the light I’ve basked in for so long is finally dimming and the time has come for me to take my final bow before the curtain closes on my sanity.

After making a deal with the district attorney and providing my club with full immunity for the crimes we’ve committed, I have twenty-four hours to remind my wife, Reina, why she fell in love with a bastard like me before I turn myself in and break her heart.

But twenty-four hours isn’t enough.
Not for me and certainly not for the Devil.

Tragedy strikes, and my world implodes. It’s lights out for Jack and Reina and a man can’t survive without his sunshine. Engulfed in darkness, consumed by the crazy, I’m a weapon of mass destruction, ready to wreak havoc on the wicked world.
Word to the wise—proceed with caution, motherf*ckers.

I thought to myself, 'surely I can resist buying books for one month. Right?' Obviously not, as pictured below is just some of the books I've received for the month of January. If any of you happen to have tips to help me keep a lock on my wallet and actually stick to my book budget, I'd greatly appreciate hearing them. Seriously, it's hard enough to resist buying what I want. But then the bookstores have ridiculous sales, like hardcovers for only $8, and I'm really supposed to look away? Yeah... no.

Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé’s restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she’s moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she’s in a relationship with her best friend’s superhot cousin. There’s just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they’re already “dating.”

Jason’s a recovering ladies’ man who shouldn’t be on the menu, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to Tatum’s quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can’t hurt. But as Tatum’s forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what’s real and what’s fake—including her feelings for Jason.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Faye has loved Terry for forever. He's utterly clueless. She's just about done waiting on him to finally notice her. Whatever it takes, she just wants one night with him (or so she thinks). Who cares about his girlfriend?

I read this in about 10 minutes and it was 10 minutes well spent. Faye was relentless and I loved her for it. Terry was baffled and he put up a token fight, but it seemed that this attraction was bubbling beneath the surface, for both of them, for quite some time. And dang, when they came together, they really came together! As hot as they were, it's no wonder this wasn't the end of their story. I wonder what happens next...

January 06, 2019

With her physical abilities ignited beyond imagination, Emmalina Crist now stands as an equal with the love of her life, Reece Richards. The only thing better than becoming a badass warrior by day is basking in the man’s passion by night.

But the newly christened Flare―and all her solar-powered abilities―must remain a secret from the world, hidden from enemies that threaten to reemerge at any moment...like the most important day of Reece and Emma’s life. The crisis exposes a new layer to the Consortium’s vile vendetta and forces the newlyweds into a painful separation.

When Reece and Emma are finally reunited, the joy is double-edged. Team Bolt is still in danger, and there’s a precious new life they’ll do anything to protect―including going into hiding. With her identity stripped and her life changed, Emma questions her choices and retreats from Reece. The hero of LA is broken and searching for answers, and everything hangs in the balance.
