Maybe This Time..

Blurb:

Moving in with my half-brother Xander, I had no idea what to expect.
But nothing could have prepared me for this.
My brother’s friends are wild, protective, secretive, always around.
And drop dead gorgeous.
Out of all of them, there’s something about Reid Knox.
Brooding, temperamental, guarded…
And I want him more than anything I have ever wanted in my life.

Review:

SO-MANY-ALPHA-MALES-I-CAN’T-SEE-STRAIGHT!

Reid… Scarred, sexy, tall, blonde, blue eyed but he also comes with a lot of baggage. This might put you off but he’s temperamental, confusing and frustrating to the point that you just want to strangle him! He goes hot/cold and gives mixed signals. Reid has a lot of flaws and it’s either you love him or hate his guts but for some reason, it was hard to remain too angry with him. He does or say something that melts my heart and made me want to crawl all over his body.

“Are you going to kiss me?” I whisper, arrested in his blue gaze.“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” he whispers back, his eyes dropping to my mouth.“Good ideas are overrated,” I say breathily.

Summer… Big brown eyes, huge tits, tiny waist and a round ass. To sum this all up our heroine is a stunner. First half of the book, I actually like Summer- she’s opinionated, feisty, hard headed but behind this is a vulnerable-weak woman. She doesn’t play mind games like some heroines out there. Maybe one thing that I didn’t appreciate was she forgives Reid soooo easily. I wanted to see more groveling in his part but hey… I’m not judging here.. I guess if I have Reid as my own begging for my forgiveness, I will probably forgive and forget and do make-up sex all night long!

“I think he’s doing enough fighting for other people, Sum, maybe he needs someone to fight for him,”

The plot might not be original but the twist and secrets made the story more intruiging and enjoyable to read. Everyone was tip toeing around Summer which kinda frustrate me. I didn’t know what the hell was going on and I’m not good in guessing so I’ve been itching to know what was the damn secrets!

When finally everything was revealed.. I was not that surprised. I’m not disappointed at all but I was hoping it’s a big mind blowing thing ya’ know? But what I liked in this story is that on each revelation, you discover another new secret that you want to unravel…

“You’re it for me,” he finally says.
“I’m not gonna give up on you, ever.”

I wouldn’t say this is the best book ever or that I love everything about it. Because it’s not. There were too many characters that I somewhat couldn’t keep up. The pacing of the story was way too fast.

“It means I’m sure Reid likes anything you like, or at least pretends to. Hell, if you were mine, I’d play that stupid game, too, just to see you smile.”

There were so many protective alpha males in this story that I couldn’t see straight! lol! To be honest, at first I had a hard time remembering all of them to the point that I even wrote down all their names, what they look like etc…by the end of the book, I know them all like the back of my hand! hahaha! Reid, Ryan, Xander, Dash, Tag, Silas and Jack OMFGjorkillmenow!!! Don’t judge me but I’m interested to know more about Jack!! I know he’s old and cheated but I find him so sexy! I want him. O__O

Despite me ranting about the paced and too many characters, I loved all the characters in this book. Even though it’s a very fast paced, you can’t help but love them all.. well.. except for Mia. I hate that bitch but her presence added some spice in the story.

“Did you see her? She’s fucking hot!”
Reid laughs. “Not as hot as you, baby, trust me.”
It’s true. Love is blind

Overall I love it but I’m not in love with it. I think it’s a good start for a great series. I’m a big fan of Chandal Fernando and been stalking her ever since I read Resisting Love series! This author never fail to write some Alpha, possessive cavemen heroes!

I highly recommend this book if you want a quick sexy read with possessive alpha males!!!

Next book is Ryan’s story. OMG! Did anyone see that coming?! The manwhore is freaking AFKJIDONTWANTTOPUTANYMORESPOILERYOUHAVETOREADTHEBOOK!!! Eeeeek! I’m so excited!!!

Fallen Too Far…

Author: Abbi Glines

too far

 

Fallen Too Far was an addictive read! The story picked up momentum immediately and never once faltered in its intensity.  Abbi has done an amazing job in taking a commonly used, but highly sought after plot—sexy bad-boy meets innocent virgin good-girl—and transforming it into something unique and genuine.

After having lost everything important to her, Blaire reluctantly heads to her estranged father’s house in search of shelter while she gets her life back on track.  What she encounters there instead is a sexy, arrogant step-brother and a  buried secret that will rock the foundation of her very world, once revealed.

Blaire and Rush have a smoldering connection that becomes evident instantly. Once again, this author proves that she can create and sustain sexual tension like no other—and the steam factor is off-the-damn-charts incredible! With many romance novels, I find that the numerous love scenes tend to become over-played and monotonous—doing nothing to enhance the actual story. The opposite is true for this author; her scenes are fun and fresh, wonderfully descriptive and uncontrollably toe curling!

The plot twist was an interesting and surprising addition. I always love when a story can throw a curve ball that I didn’t see coming and I appreciated how this bend in the plot was tackled; believable and not over-the-top.

Everyone always said that love was enough. It wasn’t. Not when your soul was shattered.

Seducing Cinderella

Author: Gina L Maxwell

Synopsis:

Blurb
Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care—Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.

Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.

Soon Reid finds him himself in the fight of his life…winning Lucie’s heart before she gives it to someone else.

Review:

I absolutely fell in love with this book.. I read it in 3 hours and just couldn’t put it down. And when it finished I was kind of sad. Iv never been much of an MMA fan, but the way Reid is just so dreamy and masculine and possessively gorgeous got me hooked.

Seducing Cinderella was all about overcoming insecurities, both for the hero and heroine. Once the heroine worked through hers, bam, the hero’s popped up. The ending was perfect! I loved it and can’t wait to read more from the very promising new author Gina Maxwell.

I suggest you get yourself a copy this minute and indulge! 😀

LOVE ME FOR ME by Kate Laurens

Sara Fawkes Writes

Kate Laurens has been one of my beta readers for a while now, and is not shy about telling me what she thinks of my stories. I on the other hand hadn’t been able to read much of her stuff until she finally mentioned a New Adult romance she’d been thinking of publishing. Of course I had to help her with it, and WOW I was blown away. My first text to her was that I hoped to do as well with the genre as she did, and that morphed into me blurbing the story (the first time I’ve ever done that!). 🙂

Mr Monster..

AUTHOR: Dan Wells

monster

 

SYNOPSIS:

In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies.

But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon—the terrifying persona he calls “Mr. Monster”—might now be using him.

No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape.

REVIEW:

Mr. Monster is a one-sitting read so gripping and unsettling that you might want to start over again at page one when you’re finished. Wells’s voice is so crisp and engaging that it feels like John is whispering in your ear—which is a bit shiver-inducing at times. I give it a solid A+ for working out the minor narrative kinks from the first book and, instead of keeping it lighter fair, delving down into the most sinister and dark places of the human psyche. Wells goes there. He’s not afraid to take his readers down the logical path that he’s set up, even though it’s not a conventional sort of story.

In this sequel to his brilliant debut, Dan Wells ups the ante with a thriller that is just as gripping and even more intense. He apologizes in advance for the nightmares

A Book Affair I could’nt Miss..

book1

This weekend I attended the biggest book fair of my life in MINES Mall,Malaysia. Discounts were at an all time high i mean books were going for as low as $1.00. It was my ultimate dream, with over 3 million books to choose from, I felt like a child in a candy store. There were fiction books, cook books, kids books, photography, you name it it was probably there.

I went in there ready for battle, battle for some books that is. With so many people there, it was hard moving around and finding books which i wanted to get, not to mention the strain of having to carry around a big box that I can put all my selections into.

books

My feet hurt from moving around so much in that huge area, searching and grabbing whatever book called my attention. I was hot, sweating and more than very hungry. And then when I finally had all the books i wanted( more like all the books I could afford tot take) I finally went to pay and the ques were insanely long. I was exhausted, but kept going, the end was near and I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. All that said, it was well worth it and the most unpleasantly fulfilling experience of my life. 😀

Enough of my complaining, these are all the books I bought! I have already finished reading one in one night. 😀
