My Review

 

Such a great book! I loved it so much and I read it in one sitting. I was so captivated, I didn’t know when time flew by. Dylan and Taylor have so much in common when it comes to their careers, but little when it comes to life outside the office. But when they meet, a fire ignites, at work and anywhere else.

“One Last Time?” is a book full of emotions, with funny moments, with hot moments and reactions that would surprise you. I liked how Dylan has an influence over Taylor’s personality and how he makes her feel free, in a way. The way they challenge each other and their results at work is well described and this complements the intensity of their encounters outside business hours.

The reason I did not give full 5 stars is because Dylan has a bad boy reputation, a cold stare and all that jazz, but I am not convinced. I wanted more proof of that. Also, the ending was too easy. I know, it makes no sense complicating such a great relationship, but still…

Having this in mind, I remain with my 4 stars. I will add that the title is absolutely fitting! Great story, I enjoyed my time with it and immediately moved to book 2.

Pregnancy Scandal
The Bad Boy Bachelors of Orange County Book 2
From USA Today Bestselling author Khardine Gray comes a sizzling hot best
friends to lovers romance that will make you melt.
Abby wants to get pregnant.
The old fashioned way.
Without the issue of dating…
She just wants the baby.
No relationship, no fuss.
I’m her best friend, so I give her my opinion freely.
This is by far the craziest idea she’s ever come up with.
It all feels bad to me until she propositions me herself and opens my
eyes to something I might not be able to resist.
I’d always wondered what it would be like to be with her.
Abby Cartwright, the girl who’d been my best friend since birth.
Her with her beautiful, sassy smile and that live for the moment daring
personality.
I’d never been able to say no to her before.
Now would be a good time to start.
Except this idea of hers has unlocked my curiosity.
And temptation wants me to explore…her.
If you like hot, steamy, romance with gorgeous, drool-worthy bad boys
you will love this book. Dive in now for some fun.
Pregnancy Scandal is a complete standalone and a part of the

My Review

Two best friends who looked anywhere else but right in front of them and a story with many complications and self-doubt. I devoured this one in the same way as book 1 from this series.

Abby and Gilly have known each other since they were kids and have been through a lot together. They know each other inside and out and nothing one of them does can surprise the other? Or? Well, Abby for sure surprises him when she drops the “I want to get pregnant and need you to help me” bomb. So… what’s the right answer here?

I loved everything abut the main characters. I loved the friendship, I loved the devotion the have for one another and I loved how naïve they both were. Many ups and downs and many hesitations complement the story very well. There are some small items that were not very believable, in the context of a great friendship, like the way they had no idea about their true feelings and later in the story Abby didn’t believe Gilly in a certain aspect, which I will not mention.

But I still loved it, I still don’t want the series to end and I cannot wait to read more and read more from the author. This is my third book by her and I still haven’t had enough 😊 And this series still has a lot more to offer! Happy reading!

 

Khardine Gray is a USA Today Bestselling author who loves writing sizzling hot
contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and paranormal romance.
Her books have sexy, drool-worthy heroes who will make you melt, and
sassy, fun loving, ambitious heroines.
She simply adores her readers and loves spoiling them.

My Review

 

If you are in the mood for something fun, quick, relaxing and with all the sparks and flames of a romance, this is the book for you! In my case, it could not have been a better time to read it and that is why I enjoyed it so much!

Jennifer has lived the life of a small towner. She has known Marcus all her life and has done all in her power to avoid him. He was the bad boy of her childhood, the bully, the perfect example of the man she did not want to have next to her. Adulthood has other plans unfortunately. When Jennifer is forced to ask Marcus for a ride to their workplace, she is surprised by his agreement and realizes she will have to spend a good number of weeks in the same car with the (now) man she must stay away from.

While both characters are amazing, I am inclined to like Marcus more. It is visible he is consumed by Jennifer’s attitude toward him and he gives her the possibility to know his true personality. She is a bit quicker to judge others and is very adamant not to believe in Marcus’ good traits. We have funny moments, we have moments of peace and quiet between them, we have that feeling of something amazing growing up. And I love it!

Noelle Adams did an amazing job developing the characters in such a short number of pages. The action is paced just at the right speed and the relationship glows in such way that we don’t have everything thrown at us in the end. Even if we only get the female perspective, Jennifer is observant enough to see the change in demeanor Marcus has toward her. Still, she is not brilliant enough to piece those changes together. So we do have several conflicts born out of the miscommunication and cluelessness of our female main character. This made me push back a star from my total rating.

All in all, I am going with 4 stars for “Carpool” by Noelle Adams, with additional hearts and love. This story was a great experience and I hope you’ll give it a try as well. Come back with your thoughts in the comments below 😊 Happy reading !

Audiobook Review: Trust & Treachery

Author: Charissa Dufour

Narrator: Ian McEuen

Length: 3 hours 57 minutes

Series: Echoes of Sol Series, Book 1

Publisher: Charissa Dufour

Released: Nov. 28, 2018

Genre: Science Fiction, Space Opera

When space freighter pilot Calen Macleef accidentally wins Larissa “Bit” Earnest in a lucky hand of poker, his main concern is what his gruff and uncompromising brother, Jack, will say about it. Jack Macleef is the captain of the ship in a world where space travel has only recently become the norm and space piracy abounds.

Painful memories of prior abuse surface for Bit as she finds herself on a freighter full of rowdy, ungentlemanly merchant marines. Jack works to find a safe place for frightened Bit among the ungentlemanly crew, but good looks and innocent ways continually charm the men.

With tension and danger running high, each begins to wonder: Will they survive the pirates…and each other?

My journey to becoming a writer began in 8th grade when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books. I also learned the blessing of creating my own friends by writing down the stories that plagued my lonely mind–as demented as that sounds. Therefore at the ripe age of fourteen, I wrote my first novel. It sucked! But I kept going and now I am an Indie Author with numerous books out. I never imagined that first horrible novel about a man who crashlanded on his long-lost homeworld would turn into a lifelong passion.
I now live in Chicago, IL with my amazing husband and two rambunctious cats, Groot and Rocket.

Ok, short, with enough action to last for many more pages the author gives us an interesting story about how a servant girl manages to survive a ship full of men.

After being won at a poker game (yup, you heard that right), Bit learns that not every guy is a bad guy. Having to deal with all the guys on the ship, receiving their attention, not in an offending way, leaves our main character quite surprised and impressed. Her life has not been easy and she has had to deal with quite a lot. I will not get into the details now. Suffice to say there is a lot to uncover and a lot to read about.

The plot is very entertaining, there are plenty of things happening and for almost 150 pages, there are many things happening and there is not one moment of boredom. I loved every page and I would have wanted to read more.

The narration was amazing! Ian McEuen did a great job keeping the story and the characters alive. The quality of the audiobook was great as well and I would love to hear his voice on the next books in the series.

All in all, this book was great. I would have wanted much more from our main character and her issues, but this is something that probably will be explored later on. 4 stars and I do hope you’ll give it a try J

Audiobook Review: Bite Me

Author: Louise Cypress

Narrators: Reba Buhr, Alexander Cendese

Length: 8 hours 2 minutes

Series: The Puritan Coven Series, Book 1

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Release date: Jan. 10, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance; Young Adult

A nerdy high school senior transforms into a vampire vixen who’s unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her.

Morgan Taylor-Jackson can’t wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California, and her parents’ messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.

As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.

Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van’s mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.

Louise Cypress believes in friendship, true love, and the everlasting power of books. She has never met a vampire or a mermaid, but she has been to a Love Sucks concert on Valentine’s Day. She can often be found curled up with a romance novel on Saturday night, diet soda in hand, secretly wishing bustles were back in fashion. Louise is from San Diego, California, where the beach is crowded and summer is immortal.

Another refreshing story! I loved this first book so much I cannot wait to read the next ones in the series. This is something you would not expect. There are twists I did not see coming and there are so many things left to uncover. Suffice to say, I read it in one sitting, as I could not put it down, at all!

Morgan faces all the changes in her body on her own. She deals with her sickness all by herself, being oblivious to the virus spreading inside her body. Her life gets turned around once she gets bitten by a 4 year old.  The bite brings changes to her body that are quite obvious for her classmates, still she believes this is all because of her new diet.

Van gets close to her to asses her level of transformation. He has no intention of becoming attached. He knows all vampires are evil and need to be destroyed. However, life has other plans. He meets a family of puritans – vampires who do not feed on human blood and maybe, just maybe his opinion would change by the end of the book.

What I mostly liked about the book is that the plot is not 100% absorbed by the romance. Each character has a path to follow. We have a mix of teenage drama (guys asking girls to prom, looking for the perfect dress) with vampire related issues. This is what keeps this story so entertaining.

There is one thing that made me disappointed. One of them is how a family of puritans was not able to immediately detect that a human has been bitten under their nose.

The narration was almost perfect! I loved the voice acting. It was amazing and entertaining. Alexander Cendese’s parts felt a little shouted somehow. His voice acting was great, but when interpreting Van, he sounded like a news anchor almost. I did not dislike his part, not at all. It just felt off in the beginning, until I got used to it. Reba Buhr – impeccable!

All in all, I cannot wait to see what will happen next!  I love a vampire story, spiked with a touch of romance.  Let’s see what the series has to offer in the next books J Happy reading! (4 stars for now)

major act of kindness that saved the person I loved most dissolved
the barrier I placed up to keep him out.
I never saw it coming.
Me, trapped in the charm he oozed. Me, trapped in the temptation that
lured me to him just from his sinful sexy smile. Me, getting lost in
a man I thought was my worse nightmare.
Caine Donoghue sucked me into a sizzling hot, whirlwind romance that was so
scorching it would make hell feel like the artic.

But…us being together unlocked something else.

My Review

Oh, this is such an intense story! There are many elements to enjoy and enough hot scenes to make you blush. There is also the thriller element that makes it even more interesting.

Anya has always had a secret crush on the boy who made her childhood a nightmare. So when need comes and the said boy, now a full grown man, is her knight in shining armor, things are bound to intensify to maximum levels. Especially if our hero has always fancied her as well. When Anya’s aunt, the woman who raised Caine, falls ill, she is more than willing to care for her and her small business. Cane offers to cover their money issues and also help around, while Halle is in the hospital, recovering. Little did they expect to face loan sharks and schemes to obtain by any means necessary, Halle’s business.

 For me, the story was a bit predictable and it left me with unanswered questions. The reason why Cane was so awful to Anya in their childhood is still beyond me and as well how a mature woman was deceived in such a way by a loan shark is a little too much. I do have some small issues with the writing – some expressions were repetitive and childish for a man in the army, in his early thirties, for example. Also, I am not a big fan of the cover.

But setting this aside, I did enjoy the romance and how both characters were afraid to commit. Their relationship starts with the knowledge that it could end at any moment, but soon both will realize they have difficulties staying away. I loved how Cane took things into his own hands and did everything to protect the two women in his life. He is by far my favorite of the two.

All in all, I did enjoy my time with the story, regardless of my negative comments. I’s a story worth uncovering, with a good thriller element.  3.5 stars. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below J Happy reading!

My Review

The second book in The Werewolf M.D. Series is a great surprise. I did like the first one, but “Werewolf Epidemic” is much more engaging and full of action. It kept me at the edge of my seat and I savored every word in each chapter.

This time, Isabella and Roman have to face stronger enemies – seen or unseen. The events challenge not only the supernatural abilities, but as well their knowledge as doctors. They fight against a virus and against others trying to hurt werewolves. Their love can withstand it all however. I loved their devotion in book 1 and I love it even more here.

As in case of the first book, I must mention that I do not like the cover – it doesn’t feel werewolf-y enough – and I have my small issues with the narration. Maybe it’s me not rezoning with the narrator’s voice. However, it was an intense experience and I must admit Hugh Bradley did a great job of transmitting the tension in every moment. I would have wanted a bit more voice acting, that’s all – changing the voice and all that.

All in all, I liked the series quite a lot and I did enjoy my time with the characters. There are fresh elements when it comes to werewolves, we have intense action and a lot of twists. I do recommend it – it’s short and very entertaining. 5 stars for the book, 3.5 for the narration = 4.25 stars = 4 stars. Happy reading!

My Review

 

I am not a big fan of self-help books. My first attempt at this genre was with a book so popular a few years ago! It was everywhere, in mass-media, on TV, literary everywhere. I read it and I ended up being so disappointed and even offended (what is the author doing? Manipulating?). So I stopped, until I started this blog and was lucky to discover one author from whose book I’ve learned a lot.

Now, reviewing my third one, I am so happy I have not given up because „Happiness Is All We Want” by  Ashutosh Mishra is extremely useful. It is a good book if you need something to pick you up and give you some direction, it has great advices, great examples and has the proper „voice” to give you an impulse.

The book is divided into three parts that are meant to cover all aspects of wellbeing: mental, physical and spiritual. All these parts are accompanied by stories and tips on how to accomplish happiness on these levels and also how to stick with the plan. For me, all these were very useful, especially because I am starting new things and I need to keep my spirits up. So I could not have come at a better moment!

Whether you are facing challenging times or a life altering decision, Ashutosh Mishra’s book is great to read. But even if this is not the case, „Happiness Is All We Want” is a great experience and will shed light on many items. There is always something to improve in our lives and in ourselves and this book is perfect for that as well. I do hope you will give it a try. Because of some formatting issues, I will go with 4 stars, but from a content point of view, I am all in! Enjoy 🙂
