Happy new 2022 Monday!  

Happy new Weekly Quote article!  

I hope you all have started the week with a positive attitude and a good book. This is not just a new week, it’s the first of 2022, which means we have to make it amazing. I am definitely trying a new approach, with better vibes. Let’s see how long it lasts :)) 

Since last week I was telling you about Idol by Kristen Callihan, today I have two quotes from the second book in the series “Managed”. I a, telling you, this was such a delight! I will tell you more in my review, but until then, here are two of my favorite quotes: 

“Oh, I bet you’d find that marvelous; all of us helpless women just smiling and nodding. Though I’m afraid it would never work on me.” “Of course not,” he deadpans. “I’m stuck next to the one afflicted with an apparently incurable case of verbal diarrhea.” “Says the man who is socially constipated.”  

“You know, I’m not actually comfortable being an asshole to women.” “Really?” I say, biting the corner of my lip to keep from smiling. “But you do it so well.”  

Yes, it’s funny, with a bit of a serious side. It has a little of everything. Let me know in the comments if these quotes sparked your interest. My review will be up sometime this week 🙂  

Until next time, Happy Reading!  

Book Review: Idol by Kristen Callihan 

Idol by Kristen Callihan

Title: Idol (VIP #1)

Author: Kristen Callihan 

PublishedJune 7th 2016 by Plain Jane  

Source: Scribd 

Type: Audiobook 

Blurb: 

Libby 
 
I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more. 
 
He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away? 
 
Killian  
As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles. 
 
Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name. 
 
The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.

My Review

This story is not only a romance, but as well a journey to rediscover oneself and become a better person. I may have enjoyed this last part more than the love story. But let me tell you more than what the blurb is describing. 

Libby meets Killian at (maybe) the lowest point in his life. Hiding away in an old house, in a small town where hopefully nobody will recognize him, he’s taking time away from his band, his fame and his life in general even. Oh, the drunk part you’ve already read about, but the scene in the book is fantastic! From the first pages we see Libby’s strength and her independence. The fact that she doesn’t recognize him makes Killian act more naturally and they begin a beautiful friendship, which in the end will lead to music – of the heart and the real kind as well. Will they stay together when reality strikes? That’s the million dollar question: will fame change everything? 

I was mentioning earlier that this is also a journey of self-discovery. Killian has lost his motivation and even his inspiration. He is tired, drained even. Recent events in their band affected all members, some in more ways than others. He is lost. Libby gives him a breath of fresh air, a chance to feel normal again. For her, Killian is the key to her own music. He opens the door to her dreams, but also her fears. They will find strength in one another, they will find even inspiration. This would be the first part of the story.  

The second part is focused on the life Killian has on stage, with his band, but as well on Libby’s career. I don’t want to get into details, as I may spoil a big part of the action, but there are challenges that their relationship will have to face and there are feelings that will be left unsaid. Loved it!  

In terms of the writing, even if this book has 339 pages (according Goodreads), it felt like a lot more. Not in a bad way, not at all. I was so drawn into the story and I was so caught up in the characters that I lost track of time. I love the fact that the author put a lot of attention into the reactions each character has to the major events, such as Libby finding out who Killian is, or later the team’s reaction to her presence or Libby’s attitude toward her potential career. It all felt natural.  

Since I listened to this book on Scribd, I can say that both narrators did a great job. I loved how each used the inflexions to portray key details of our characters’ personalities. I had no problem understanding who was who in the scenes where more characters appeared.  

Oh, and speaking about the rest of the characters, I have a feeling that the next books in the series will be fantastic as well. We find out a little about them, not about all but the main ones. I cannot wait to tell you about their stories as well (I’ve finished book 2 and I am almost half way into book 3 already).  

Ok, time to wrap this up. I decided to give the book 4 out of 5 stars, mainly because at some point nothing happened and the action felt a bit slow. Also, the tension in the end was not as intense as I was expecting. This does not mean that I enjoyed it less, absolutely not. I loved the book and I loved the narration, but the reviewer in me is acting out. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve read the book or if you’ve read any other series by this author. For me it was the first book and I cannot wait to read her other series as well.  

Until next time, happy reading!  

Cover ReviewOh, I love the cover! It represents the story perfectly. The stage lights, Killian in the middle of it all, but keeping his mystery somehow. Yes, the cover is awesome.  

Favorite Quote: Baby doll, I could assert my manly dominance, thump my chest, and declare you’re mine. But it wouldn’t mean a damn thing if I’m not yours in return.  

4 stars

2022 – Happy New Year!  

Happy 2022 bookish friends! I hope you’ll have an amazing year, will love, health, happiness and good people around! May each day smile upon you and may you discover 1000 other amazing worlds in the books you plan to read! 

I’ve drafted some of my bookish and non-bookish resolutions for the new year and hopefully I will manage to accomplish them. I’ve failed 2021 on so many levels. I’ve failed my book blogging activity, I’ve failed professionally and personally as well. At least more to the end of the year, I came to my senses, partially at least and I’ve established some goals:

Bookish Resolutions 

  1. Read and review 100 books: usually I would say “read at least 100 books”. Maybe I’ll surprise myself. 
  2. Increase my article diversity: a goal I had for 2021 but failed!
  3. Stay away from reading slumps: not yet sure how I’ll manage this
  4. Read more Fantasy: I would like to say I had this planned for 2021 as well, but it doesn’t matter. I hardly read anything last year… 
  5. Be consistent with my posting schedule: that’s a challenge. 

Non-Bookish Resolutions 

  1. Plan my days: I am the daughter of Chaos! If I don’t see my tasks for the day, I am lost! Lucky me, I found a pretty nice planner the other day in a library. It’s small, so I can carry it everywhere. No escaping ! 
  2. Continue developing my sewing skills: this means sewing constantly and also sewing something else besides the things I am comfortable sewing
  3. Be more productive at my daily job: yeah, next?
  4. Have stability, in my personal life: I wish I could give you details, but I’m not there yet.
  5. Grow my sewing business: I have a plan with a friend. Let’s see how far we can take it during 2022. 
  6. Linked with prior resolution: start a vision board for my sewing business. I am not sure how to start one but my favorite youtubers have some videos up which I’ll check for inspiration. 
  7. Leave the office at a decent time: could someone print this and mail it to me so I can sign it will blood? Cause I am not committing to this resolution otherwise!  
  8. Linked to item 1: organize my time so I don’t have to give up the things I enjoy. This means: time for my daily job, my sewing business, my blog and also my personal stability. 

2021 may not have been the best for me, but I plan on making 2022 better. The past is the past, we closed this chapter a few hours ago, time to write a new one. Be positive, be inspired and be amazing! 

Happy new year

Until next time (there WILL be a next time!), Happy Reading! 

Wishing you well…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

And this is not just a line in a Christmas song. It really is a wonderful time, with good food, good people and good deeds. Or at least I hope it is the case for you all.

I’ve been out of the blogging world for quite some time. I have not read as much as I would have liked during my absence, but I am slowly catching up with e-mails and books I need to finish. Having a full (+over) time job, starting a sewing business and managing a book blog got a bit overwhelming.  My anxiety was to the highest levels. I am not saying things are better now, but I am willing to find a rhythm to make this work.

Enough talking, more actions! And this you will see in the coming days. I have three reviews pending to be posted, 3 books that were so, so good and I cannot wait to share my thoughts with you. I will get back to my bookish and non-bookish TBRs and wrap ups as well, with the first one being in January. I hope we will grow again together and I hope we’ll have lots and lots of bookish talks.

In the meantime, enjoy the holidays with the people close to your heart and spread the love to those who need it! Merry Christmas!

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.”

About The Author roxie_noir

I love writing sexy, alpha men and the headstrong women they fall for.

My weaknesses include: beards, whiskey, nice abs with treasure trails, sarcasm, cats, prowess in the kitchen, prowess in the bedroom, forearm tattoos, and gummi bears.

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!

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?”

January Wrap Up and February TBR

Hey Guys,  

How was the first month of the year for you ? Even if I did not manage stick to my resolutions too much so far, I do believe my month was good and February started even better. I’ve read a few great books and for February I plan on reading even more.  

Let me give you a bit of a rundown of my January reads: 

  1. Filthy Rich Prince by Lynn Raye Harris 
  2. Detour by DD Prince 
  3. Don’t Kiss the Bride by Carian Cole 
  4. In The Penalty Box by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount 
  5. Lights Out by Kat Ransom 
  6. Fallen by K.L. Bone & Greg Wilkey 
  7. A Dark and Stormy Night by Kerrigan Byrne 
  8. Wicked Rivals by Lauren Smith 
  9. Beautiful Mess by Melody Adams 

Yes, I missed a few of the titles that I was including in my January TBR, but fear not! They will be carried over to February!  

In terms of my predictions, I was of course right about “Lights Out”. I mean, it’s Kat Ransom, it was an easy prediction. I was very wrong about “Detour”. I am still thinking about the rating, but it will be below 4. I can’t say anything about my other assumptions, since I have not finished those books yet.  

February started with some interesting reads. I plan on focusing on the ones I missed in January, but I also have some commitments for the below books:  

  1. The Elmentalist: Journey to Zlorta by S. N. Hunt 
  2. Broken by Evelyn Sola 
  3. Rise for Me by Kristal Dawn Harris 
  4. Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown 
  5. Inked Persuasion by Carrie Ann Ryan 
  6. Winning the Schoolmarm by Lacy Williams 
  7. Shadow and Poison by J.B. Curry 
  8. Starlet by Sophie Lark 
  9. Tongue’s Target by K.L. Savage 
  10. Splintered Stars by Rachel Madbury 
  11. The Bridal Discipline Series by Golden Angel (5 books + 1 novella) 
  12. Cursed by Athena Floras 
  13. Miss Trust by Aubrey Bondurant 
  14. Thrasher by K.L. Savage 
article_break
 
I PREDICT 5 STARS FOR… 

“Miss Trust”, because it’s an office romance and lately I’ve been loving them a lot! K. L. Savage has not let me down either, so I predict 5 stars for “Thrasher” as well, with it being book one from a new series.  

NOT HIGH HOPES FOR… 

“Rise for Me”, because it has 60 pages and it is a vampire story…. I don’t expect the plot to be very tight. Let’s see, it’s my read for this evening. I hope The Bridal Discipline Series will not become boring toward the end. The stories seem more or less the same.  

INTERESTING READ 

Definitely Brené Brown’s book is the most interesting I have in this list. I hope I will learn something from it.  

I have not added the books carried over from January, though I do plan to read them. I have a lot to do this month, so there will be 21 full days (7 are already gone).  

Until next time, Happy Reading!
