I write, I read and I review. I am passionate about a convincing love story. I appreciate tragedy and edgy plots. I am an avid reader. I have recently begun reading new genres. I really like the Adult and & YA fiction.
Populatti - Jackie Nastri Bardenwerper
Thank you for the ARC of this novel.  

I really enjoyed this YA fiction. It was fresh and done in a complete teeny bop fashion. I laughed and sighed throughout the story. In the end it is a story about self discovery. It is written in an engaging way. Livi is a sophomore in high school who is just turning sweet 16. We learn about the ups and downs of being teenager in high school trying to find themselves and live up to everyone expectations. I hope you get this booked approved on AR for middle school children. It is a good read.

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC.

 

"Because you're not who you used to be, but you're not who you're going to be yet, either."

 

Ruthie Knox weaves a tale of reality that hits all of us in the course of our lives. This novel is about making choices and trying to find the truth and our purpose. This is the love story of May Fredericks and Ben Hausman. Simply it is a love at first sight sort of connection, but what tugs at your heart strings is the depth of their connection. This novel shows how both men and women have a habit of ignoring their potential. This is a great book about life. This isn't new age, edgy sexy book.

 

I highly recommend this book. It will make you think, feel and love.

Hot spicy Novella...

Cracks in the Armor - Helena Hunting

Thank you Netgalley for a copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is a spicy short novella that introduces the romances of Chris and Sarah. WE get a glimpse into what the inner workings are of their relationship. We begin to see what Chris and Sarah want from their own lives at the moment and how much they desire each other.

I was relieved to see that Hayden and Tenley had worked through most of their issues and were still together.

This was a quick spicy read and I recommend it. Some very good points were made in this novella and yet, Hunting managed to plant a few nuggets along the way.

Etoile - Olivia Besse

Thank you Wunderland Press for this ARC.

 

If you have ever wanted to be a model, then read this book. Etoile is a young fresh new face, starting out as a Model in New York. You get a fanatsy inspired view of being young and dumb while trying to climb the real world ladder. Etoile parties, plays and pursues her dreams. She finds herself in a love triangle.. does she want lust and fireworks or admiration and respect...

 

This story has tons of twists and turns. It will keep you entertained. I recommend it for a quick and easy summer escape.

Dazed is a spicy short by Kim Karr. In the novella she depicts the love we all long for... love that is mine altering. As women we often forgo our pleasure for our mates,Aerie is that woman. Kim Karr creates fantasy tale around Jagger and Aerie's passion that will intrigue you. It was short and sweet but sexy steamy.

"She didn't take a dime. She took everything that mattered."

Beg - C.D. Reiss

Heart wrenching passion is throughout this book. It is very deep, involved and on point. Set in LA the heroine Monica is a struggling artist who waits tables. She falls for the boss and bites off way more than she can chew.. The prose is excellent. Great art references and C.D. Reiss describes LA with perfection.

Kitt is a SEX Rock Star!!

Yank (New Adult Romance) - Selena Kitt

Thank you Netgalley for this lovely ARC. 

 

This is my new FAVORITE Author... al hail to Selena Kitt. I love this deliciously sweet novella. This is a story of young bloke who is falling in lust for the first time. David the POV is young adult who is experiencing sex for the first time with a lusty very forward American bombshell, Dawn. 

 
Kitt writes sex scenes that are so hot, you will have to change your knickers. Be prepared to stop and start, because the emotions and descriptions are amazing. She is a superb writer. I felt as though I know how a young sex crazed British Boy feels and acts. This book was brilliant. 
 
I can't wait to read more of Kitt's work!
 
Cheers
American Fraternity Man - Nathan Holic

This is a great coming of age story. This novel is about a young man's quest to clean up the failing Greek Fraternity system. Charles Washington is a recent college graduate. He is full of promise and vigor. He drives from college to college helping fraternities by conducting leadership development workshops. As luck would have it, he finds himself reliving the Frat life, late night parties, girls, alcohol you name it. The story truly is a quest for righteousness and purpose. Wonderful tale and well written.

Second Chance at Love

Louder Than Love - Jessica Topper

Thank you to Netgalley for this advance copy

 
 
This is a classic love story about second chances. Jessica Topper, the author weaves a magical tale of tragic love loss with hope for a new beginning. Kat is a widow raising her daughter alone in a small town. Kat is a librarian. She hires Adrian Digger Graves to play, he is this reclusive rocker and their love story starts. 
 
Through their pain of love loss and failed dreams they create a new love and a second chance. This is a great book for someone who need a push to start over. To realize that to love again is ok. Also to release the pain and open themselves up to the possibility of a new love. The characters are older so the appeal for this book spans age groups. 
 
Just try it, you will like it. It is very well written.
