Weekly Quote #21 

20200503_093802.jpg

A new week!  

I don’t know how you guys do it, but I usually plan my week on a Sunday, then spend Monday planning how to act on … my plan ! Yup, then at the end of the day I am sad that I did not do anything from my Sunday list. Oh well, I’m strange like that.  

However, this past month was not a complete waste. Even if it was not visible here on the blog, I had a lot of bookish related activities and I read a few interesting books. So here I am with a quote from one of them: “Seeking Vengeance” by Eden Summers. You already know how much I love the Hunting Her series and this book is not far behind at all.  

“Don’t cry, Lyla,” he whispers. “We both know tears are a privilege for those who lack guilt.” 

There are two reasons why I love this quote. The first is because Cole Torian remains true to his personality and this line screams Cole Torian! The sarcastic tone, the mockery and the subtle offense are just a few of his abilities and I absolutely adore him. The second reason is the truth that this statement has. One could argue that indeed tears are just for the innocent. The guilty don’t get to feel relief by crying.  

My thoughts about this book are conflicting. I am taking my time with the review, but you will read it soon, this I promise you.  

That’s it for today. I wish you all an amazing week with amazing books! Until next time, Happy Reading!  

Book Review: Enemies With Benefits by Roxie Noir 

TitleEnemies With Benefits  Enemies_with_benefits_roxie_noir

Author: Roxie Noir

Published: September 14th 2020

Source: read on Scribd

Type: e-book

Blurb:

Eli Loveless was my nemesis from the first day of kindergarten until we graduated high school. Everything I did, he had to do better – and vice versa. The day he left town was the best day of my life. 

Ten years later, the day he came back was the worst. Now he’s my co-worker. 

Grown-up Eli Loveless is sexy as sin. He’s hotter than asphalt in the summer. The irritating kid I once knew is gone, and he’s been replaced by a man with green eyes, perfect abs, and a cocky smile. It’s bad that I want him. It’s worse that he wants me back. 

There are looks. There are smirks. There are smiles that make my panties burst into flame. And then there’s a shared kiss that leads to the hottest night of my life. This is no office romance. This is a five-alarm fire. 

What’s a girl to do when the man I can’t stand is the one I can’t stop lusting after? 

Enter into a friends-with-benefits agreement, of course. 

No dates. No relationship. Just blisteringly hot sex, because if there’s one person I could never fall for, it’s Eli. …right?

With joy and pride I am writing this: I have finished a book!!! And I am writing a review for a book that I have just finished! How awesome is that?! I am sorry, I may be a little too eager here but it feels like ages since I sat down and actually wrote a review. I’ve missed this and I didn’t even realize it until recently. Somehow it all came back and I plan on making sure I won’t lose it again. But that’s not the topic here. Let’s talk about this book! 

Enemies to Lovers is book 1 in the Loveless Brothers series by the amazing Roxie Noir. We meet Eli and Violet and they’ve been at each other’s throats since they were kids, trying to best each other in every possible competition. Little did they expect for a kiss to change everything. But you know how one kiss leads to another and then another and then all of a sudden they become something close to friends with benefits? Well, more on the benefits side of the saying. The road they take to realizing that there can be more than competition, more than just benefits between them is extremely fun, tasty and oh so hot! 

We have an amazing couple. Eli is a typical good guy, so focused on what he loves. He’s confident and reliable and that’s how he manages to get past Violet’s walls. She on the other hand has always focused on being the best, outsmarted Eli at everything she could. Life has not been too kind with her, as she had to put her dreams on hold to take care of family. They have this intense chemistry, it’s like a fire burning right in your hands when you’re holding this book. 

I think my fist and only issue with the two characters is precisely the one I’ve mentioned above. Eli knows exactly what he wants. He knows what his passion is and he wants to follow his passion for cooking. Violet didn’t seem passionate about much. Yes, she knows how to get things done, she is a good planner. But I would have expected her to be his equal in terms of passion for… something. Don’t get me wrong, I can move past this aspect, but they just feel a little unbalanced. 

In terms of writing and pacing, Enemies with Benefits may seem like a long book . But the fun parts, the easy flow of dialogue and everything in between is so enjoyable, you won’t even feel the pages flying. There are so many quotable lines and so many scenes at which I was laughing out loud. Everything is there with a purpose, I would not jump over any line. That’s how the couple becomes stronger and stronger. 

All in all, if you’re in the mood for a super fun enemies to lovers, “Enemies With Benefits” is a great option! I can tell you that the series only gets better and the Loveless family is a handful 🙂 

Until next time, Happy Reading!

Cover Review:  I don’t think there is something to like or dislike about the cover. It doesn’t stand out, as it’s your classic “hot guy on the cover” type. Not that impressed 

Favorite Quote: There are a lot of quotes I like, but just to pick one:

“Are you Buddies?” Daniel asks.

I just spread my hands and shrug dramatically. 

“I don’t know,” I say. “Usually I at least like the people I have sex with, This is new territory.”

Release Blitz: Seventeen Butterflies by Anna Katmore

About the Book

Title: Seventeen Butterflies

Author: Anna Katmore

Genre: Contemporary Teen Romance

The embarrassment of being the only unkissed girl in high school is something Sandy Cardington refuses to accept. The first kiss project is her foolproof plan to finally get rid of the status at her 17th birthday party, while her parents are out of town.

With several kissable boys on her guest list, this should be a walk in the park. But she didn’t count on her older brother returning from college and throwing a wrench into her plans. To make matters even more complicated, he has a friend in tow, and the cute hockey player stirs unexpected butterflies in her stomach every time their paths cross.

While Sandy moves heaven and earth to make her party and project come true, it looks as if Thane Griffyn has his own plans to teach her the real meaning of a first kiss…

Excerpt

I’ve never really been the one who stood out in any crowd, but this afternoon I feel like Megan Fox, ready to take on the world.

“Honey, if that doesn’t pocket you a kiss tonight,” Gina coos as she blows a peck on my cheek at the front door, “I don’t know what will.”

“Thanks!” I tell her, grinning big time, waving goodbye. “See you later at the party!”

As I head home on foot this time, because it’s only a couple of streets anyway, I wonder what kind of impression I’ll make on my guests tonight. Pretty enough for anyone to dare kiss me? Judging from the glances and smirks coming my way from a group of young men while I head home, it’s certainly in the cards.

I can’t wait to hear what Adrian thinks about Gina’s makeover skills. Since I left the keys with him earlier, he should be in my house by now, setting up his sound system for the party. It’s a lot better than what we have and can easily be controlled with his laptop.

Following the laughing voices drifting from the kitchen, I try hard to keep my expectant grin in check. However, the moment I enter, the gazes of all three boys fly to me, and the conversation stops abruptly as if a bomb exploded. Thane spits out the sip of water he just drank in a spray across the kitchen counter. My brother’s chin hits his chest, giving me an ugly view of some munched snacks. And Adrian’s eyes grow as wide as his round lips forming an inaudible, “Whoa.”

Stopped midway by the force of their shocked expressions, I’m not exactly sure if this is the reaction I wanted. While Thane rushes to clean up the mess he made, my brother gathers himself and states around the food in his mouth, “You’re not going to wear this tonight.”

What the hell? He can’t be serious!

“Since when are you in charge of dressing rules in this house?” I fling back, planting my fists on my hips.

“Since Mom asked me to come home and keep an eye on you.” His voice takes on a much sharper edge. “Now change the fuck into one of your decent dresses, or the party’s off.”

My frustrated gaze moves to Adrian, but none of the others seem to want to contradict Cameron right now. What’s wrong with all of them?

My eyes find Thane’s, and I know I’ve lost this battle, because his stunned glare on me borders on cold rage. “Sorry, Sandra,” he growls as he screws the cap back on the water bottle, “but this time your brother’s right.” Totally startling me, he skirts the counter, grabs my hand—none too gently this time—and drags me out of the room.

“Where are you taking me?” I protest when there’s no chance to withstand his pull.

“Upstairs to find you more suitable clothes for tonight. You want to get kissed, not laid.”

Why the hell is he so angry? He’s the last one to get a say in my life. And still, here I am, being hauled into my room by him and wincing as he slams my door shut, cutting us off from the rest of the house. I spin around in front of my bed and cross my arms rebelliously over my chest.

“And now what?” I spit out.

“Now you take those boots off.”

A cynical laugh escapes me. “My boots are none of your business.”

Scowling, Thane takes one stride closer. Two feet away, he folds his arms, mirroring my stance, and arches one eyebrow. “Either you take them off, or I will. You have one second.”

Jesus Christ!

Author Bio

The nitty-gritty:

I’ve been a storyteller all my life, building bridges into different worlds. Already in kindergarten, I’ve seen the most fantastical things and wanted to share them with everyone. My teacher called me a liar back then. Today, I call it the first real flash of my spiritual gift and the cornerstone of my writing career.

When I got older, I’ve had many visions of a perfect career, while writing has always been more of a hobby and kind of a therapy for me when the longing for more magic in this world once again caught up with me in a crushing way. When my first book was finished, I couldn’t even imagine sharing one of my stories with others, ever. In fact, I only got used to the idea while I wrote my second book and learned in a very miraculous way where the many stories in this world really come from.

It’s funny how, at that point, everyone told me I can’t possibly make a living with writing. They even warned me not to quit my job. But after my debut novella PLAY WITH ME came out and sales skyrocketed within the first week, I knew I could do anything I wanted if only I never stopped dreaming.

That’s also part of what I teach my students in writing and spiritual workshops today. Always dream big! If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.

Some personal stuff:

“I’m writing stories because I can’t breathe without.”

Disney is my attitude to life, and if I could I’d save the world from itself. My Patronus is a wolf, my wand the broken twig of an apple tree, 13 ¾ inches with a unicorn hair core. I can’t deny that on some days, I prefer my book characters over real people, but there’s not a single day going by where I wouldn’t try to find magic in reality. And when I’m alone, I love to listen to the many stories of the wind in a mystic mid-summer night.

So you see, I’m lucky enough to live in an enchanting world of my own. It’s peaceful there and full of magical things, fairies and wonders. You’re welcome to follow me there – if you’re ready to open up your mind and leave everything you learned about reality behind. But beware, if you dare to step through this door, you may never want to leave again…

Weekly Quote #20

20200503_093802.jpg

Hey there! 

Happy new week (one day late) ! 

I hope you all have started with a positive attitude and an excellent mood and that you will continue with these awesome feelings for the rest of the week! Let’s get right into today’s quote, shall we?

Since last week I spent it all beta reading and writing reports, I did not manage to finish “Enemies With Benefits by Roxie Noir. Thus here I am with another quote from this great story: 

That night stretches into  two, then three. A few days becomes a week, ten days, a fortnight, and before I know it, Violet and I have been friends with benefits for a month. 

Well, “friends”. It’ll have to do as a moniker, because I don’t know another words for “person who irritates the living daylights out of me until she takes her clothes off, at which point she becomes my own personal sex goddess, custom-built to satiate my physical desires.”

“Friends” is at least shorter. 

I’ve mentioned this before, this book is so much fun! I cannot wait to review it. Stick around, as tonight I plan on finishing it, so the review will  be in more to the end of the week. 

Well guys, that’s it for today. I’ll see you in my next article 😊 Happy reading!

Weekly Quote #19

20200503_093802.jpg

Happy Monday!

I hope your week started at least as great as mine and I hope the next 6 days will be 10 times better 😊

As I used to do a while back, I’m returning with my weekly quotes, hoping this will be an inspiration for you to pick up new titles or for us to comment on the books I am currently reading 😊 With this in mind, for today I have a quote from “Enemies With Benefits” by Roxie Noir. I still have 200 pages to go through, but so far I love it a lot!

Before she can say a word, I kiss the hell out of her. Violet’s arms go around me. I kiss her harder. I kiss her like I’ve been to war. I kiss her like I haven’t seen her in years, her soft warmth flooding through me, bright against the cold room.

I kiss her like I won’t be sleeping much tonight, either.

What I liked about this quote is the intensity of the moment, the passion Eli puts into that one kiss. All that hate, all those challenges they faced in their adolescence are now transformed into something else entirely. All that energy is now a burning passion. Show me a lady in this world that does not dream of such a kiss!

With this quote now in place, excuse me while I dream about Eli for a moment. Enjoy your week and until next time, happy reading!

Back to the Roots

…or me, just putting pen to paper again

 

You know who they say that when you get lost you need to return to where it all started? That all the answers lie in the beginning? Well, I got lost! I lost myself in plans, in wishes, in books or even in people. I lost my devotion to what I love most and I lost my dreams of that perfect… chapter. So I went back to where I started as a reader.

Let’s talk about Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Ok, go ahead, hate me or blame me all you want but I adore this series so much, or better yet, I adore how it made me feel while reading it or when I ended one book in the series. This was my starting point as an avid reader, because I devoured each volume like a bottle of cold Coca-Cola, no sugar, with lemon (yup, I’m an addict). My days were spent at the office, but my evenings and nights were spent with vampires, halves and hunters.

Then I realized I had nobody to talk with or about it and I discovered Goodreads. I wanted to be part of the community and talk about the series that messed me up so much. From here to blogging it was a simple but important step. It was putting myself out there for others to criticize my opinions or writing style. THIS was the most daring thing I’ve ever done. I’ve opened myself up to more reading, to committing to write articles, reviews or just write about anything and everything else. With every book I was finishing I was writing a page in this diary of mine that’s LBW. And I loved it, until I got lost. Hell (sorry!) even my browser no longer remembers my Goodreads password! It hasn’t been that long since my last post, but it’s been THAT long since I felt something.

sunsetfromthebuss

So I went back to Vampire Academy and what it meant to me. I dug out my notes, dusted my feelings, kicked myself virtually a few times and debated if I should stop or start all over again and commit to a decision. Just one series can do that to a person (granted, you’d have to be obsessed a bit…ok, a bit more… a lot actually). And here I am, trying to clean up my act, trying to feel again, read again and commit. I guess a “THANK YOU” is in order to Richelle Mead for getting me through my toughest times (two times already). And thank you for sticking with me still, after everything (yes, I mean YOU!).

This was not a book review, it was just me reopening a door I shut a while back. Book reviews will come soon and much more as well. For now, remember to enjoy every moment. Remember that beauty is in the eyes of the seer and that feelings are all around us. Just be open to the right ones. Dare to say yes. Until next time, happy reading!

Yours,
Lilly

Book Review: Filthy Rich Prince by Lynn Raye Harris

Title: Filthy Rich Prince (Filthy Rich Billionaires #2) Filthy Rich Price by Lynn Raye Harris

Author: Lynn Raye Harris  

Published: January 26th 2021 by Amazon Digital Services 

Source: ARC received in exchange for review 

Type: e-copy 

Blurb: 

Single mother Lily Morgan knows what it’s like to struggle. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t work hard to survive. But when she’s thrown in jail in a foreign country, she has no idea she’s about to come face to face with the prince who took her virginity and left her pregnant two years ago. 

Nico Cavelli might’ve released Lily from his dungeon, but he’s not letting her go. She stole his son and heir, and he can’t forgive that. He’ll make her his princess – and he’ll make her pay for keeping his child a secret. 

What he will never do is show her any mercy. 

Or fall in love with her… 

NOTE: This is a Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella romance with an alphahole hero who is transformed by love in the end. If you don’t like angsty reads with dramatic conflict, best keep scrolling! There will be some bad decisions. There will be bossiness. And there will be groveling by the end. You were warned.

To be completely honest, there are parts of this story that I’ve really enjoyed and there are parts that were frustrating. We have two main characters, each with their own responsibilities. There is an interesting contrast that I will detail in the following lines, we have communication issues, but as well some scenes that were forced here and there.  

In his desire to escape his royal life, Nico has an affair with Lily. Even if their connection is intense and they both seem to want more, ne never shows up to their second date. Time passes and Lily has a beautiful boy. She is determined to provide him the life she did not have and her struggle is for the little boy only. When her job sends her to Monebianco for an assignment, things get complicated. Her encounter with Nico is nothing as the guy who stole her heart months ago. He is now cold, arrogant,  insufferable and an overall jerk.  

I loved how Lily and Nico were dedicated to their duties. She has one life to care for, while Nico has an entire kingdom. Their past is their motivation, but at some point, the child and the kingdom will be in conflict. Nico is more affected by all this, but he’s not willing to give up his child. Political intrigue, family conflict and a marriage that needs to be set on the right course – these are just some of the elements that can be found in Filthy Rich Prince.  

However, I feel that some of the scenes were not very consistent in the overall book. For example Nico’s political choice of a bride was unstable. His connections or “secret services” seem to be extremely efficient, but when actually needed, they don’t work properly. I can’t get into details unfortunately. Lily at some point becomes a bit spoiled. Even if in the beginning she is more than content to lead a simple life, she adjusts well to the royal life.  

To conclude, I think it was an ok book. It was entertaining, until the conflict becomes too much. I wanted to be blown away but…. I was not. I did not dislike it, but it does not stand out.     

Let me know your thoughts on the book, let me know if you’ve read it or anything else by the author in the comments below. Until next time, happy reading 😊   

 Cover Review: I like the gold color in the title. It makes me think about royalty. But that’s about it. The picture behind the tile is a great shot for a model, nothing that would make me think about a prince

Book Review: Detour by D.D. Prince

Title: Detour (Beautiful Biker #1)Detour by DD Prince

Author: D.D. Prince

Published: September 27th 2016 by Amazon Digital Services

Source: owned

Type: e-copy

Blurb:

Meet Deacon:

He’s 28, tall, dark, gorgeous, and 100% alpha male. In the relationship department, things either go one way or the other. He either shows them a good time and moves on, never going back for seconds, or he stakes a claim and things get serious REAL fast. It’s been a long while since he’s been motivated to claim anyone. Deacon has what some might classify a problem with possessiveness and jealousy. But he’s got good reasons for this. And when he does stake his claim, he means it. And he allows no one to mess with that.

Meet Ella.:

Ella, 23, feels like the Marilyn Munster of her eclectic household. Despite her crazy hippie parents and rambunctious little brother, her life is boring and humdrum. And her love life is so far off the mark that she considers herself in a serious relationship with her battery-operated boyfriend. She’s having trouble shaking off an ex that won’t go away and fending off her partying friends who continually hassle her to either party with them or be their designated driver.

But things are about to get real for Ella. Real fast.

Very soon after she notices the new Beautiful Biker in town she finds herself in a real pickle. In fact, Ella keeps finding herself in trouble. And Deacon, whose MC has just opened a chapter, biker bar, and garage in Ella’s town, (much to the chagrin of an existing rival MC), notices Ella, too. Deacon keeps swooping in to save Ella’s bacon from a variety of tight spots.

And because of that, it draws even further attention to her. Someone or several someone want revenge against Deacon and his MC and don’t mind using a biker’s woman to make their point.

Ella has been warned away from Deacon. And she worries that her heart will go SPLAT if she lets the beautiful biker get too close.

But it’s too late. Ella has no choice because Deacon is determined to get right in her space.

This book contains a hot alpha book boyfriend, steamy hot scenes, some laughs, and plenty of biker romance action. And because it comes from the brain of DD Prince, it has a little bit of darkness, too.

Standalone, no cliffhanger.

Full disclosure: I wanted to love it! I needed to love it at that time. I read this book with such desperation and an immense hunger for an MC Romance.  Yet, I was a little bit disappointed.

Short version of the blurb (because actual blurb may be longer than my review): Ella meets Deacon, when he moves in town with his MC. There’s instant attraction between them, but things are always more complicated. Not only we have the rival MC club and the misunderstandings between them, but also the rumors, the fear of becoming involved with a “bad boy”.

I liked the action. This is what kept me reading until the last page. I was curious to know how this conflict would be resolved and I was also curios to see if finally our main characters would sit and talk.  The romance, even if it happened kind of fast (the L-word is too soon added to the conversation, in my opinion) was great and their hot moments were really hot. But that’s about it.

There are more items that I did not enjoy, such as the unbelievable amount of descriptions or unnecessary facts. I did not like her friends. They seemed kind of bitchy (excuse the language) and in a hurry to tell Ella the bad things about her boyfriend. There is a weird conflict with a gang bang that may or may not be voluntary. Ella’s family seems to be a mess (with a father that has a weird behavior and a mother that tends to be irresponsible sometimes). I missed as well Deacon’s POV and his opinion on the events.

But to keep this short, I did not enjoy it as much as I wanted. I will however give a shot to the other books in the series and hopefully they will be a bit better edited.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve read the book and what’s your overall opinion about it. Until next time, happy reading 🙂

Cover Review:

I don’t get it. I don’t get the arrow, I don’t get what’s that zipper in the guy’s pants… I don’t get it. I’m sorry… Nice abs though 🙂

Favorite Quote:

“Sweetheart, I know you like your life to be a well-oiled machine, but let your old Dad give you some advice. Sometimes is good to go off course. You heard that old saying, go out on a limb; that’s where the fruit is. Right?”

Wow, this is the longest time that I’ve been away from blogging. I have over 500 unread emails and probably half are junk. There is dust in my Kindle library and dust on my real shelves as well. I’ve missed posts and I’ve missed scheduling articles.  

While my absence is justifiable, as I have tried to put order in my life and adding sewing to my daily routine, I do still struggle with many mood swings. I won’t wrap up February (or March), makes no sense since I’ve read none of the titles in my lists. Yet all this time I have listened to a lot of audiobooks and Scribd has been my best friend. No reviews, no ratings, no nothing, just plain old listening (and falling asleep while listening).  

So here I am, ready to start blogging again, ready to share with you my reading and life experience. I am taking it one step at a time, one chapter, one book at a time. For this month I want to read and review 6 books (the review part is important since lately I tend to leave it out…), while slowly developing my schedule. Here are the titles:  

  1. Once a Myth (Goddesses Isles #1) by Pepper Winters 
  2. Miss Understanding (Miss #1) by Aubrey Bondurant 
  3. Miss Typed (Miss #2) by Aubrey Bondurant 
  4. Miss Belief (Miss #3) by Aubrey Bondurant 
  5. A Cowboy Kind of Love (Heart of Texas #6) by Donna Grant 
  6. How to Train your Earl (First Comes Love #3) by Amelia Grey 

I also plan on going through all my e-mails and post reviews for some of the books that I’ve listened to. I will be a slow start, but with a goal in mind 🙂  

Thank you all for being there for me through this time and thank you to all the beautiful authors that kept sending me e-mails. 

Until next time, Happy Reading!
