Flat-Out Celeste (Flat-Out Love #2) by Jessica Park

“You tolerated all of my craziness. You made me happy.” “You did the same for me. Do the same. You create contractions.” This was probably one of the sweetest books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Jessica Park has a knack for creating offbeat, quirky characters that just wrap themselves around your heart and don’t let go. This was the case in Flat Out Love when we first met Celeste and the Watkins family and I think it got even stronger after reading this follow up. Celeste was brilliant as the main character and as a reader …

Forgetting August by J.L. Berg – Blog Tour & Review!

‘Could the heart remember what the mind couldn’t?’ It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of J.L. Berg, I still get in a love fog when I think of her Ready Series and I also loved The Walls duet so when I heard about this book (duet really) I was like “where do I sign up?” I loved the concept from reading the blurb, it sounded so different from her other books and I was really excited to read it. I have to say, August and Everly’s story sucked me right in and I couldn’t read fast enough …

Flat-Out Matt (Flat-Out Love #1.5) by Jessica Park

“How you find love means nothing. It’s what you do with it when you see it that does.” WARNING!!! If you haven’t read Flat Out Love yet, turn around and go read it before you read this review because it will probably spoil things from that book and that book is best enjoyed if you let things play out on its own. And besides this novella will make no sense to you if you try to read it on its own, it is not a standalone. Ok, assuming you are a Flat Out Love reader and have gotten past my …

Flat-Out Love (Flat-Out Love #1) by Jessica Park

“This was never going to end well. You realize that, don’t you?” “It could.” This is a tough book to review because it’s one where you really don’t want to give anything away because it will ruin everything! I’ll admit that I was able to correctly guess what was going on fairly early on, not the exact details but overall I figured what was happening, but one thing I’ve learned about Jessica Park’s writing is that even though you may have figured it out she is still able to pack an emotional punch when the truth is revealed. That’s exactly …

Enflame (The Affair #3) by S. Layne

“His eyes and how they slowly roam down the length of my body, taking in every inch of my covered skin. I may be wearing an oversized sweatshirt and yoga pants, but I’ve never felt so naked in my life. My hair is in a sloppy ponytail, my makeup washed off. I should feel like a slob, but as Donovan continues closing the space between us, I know he doesn’t care about any of that.” Since meeting Talia in the first two books of this series (Entice/Embrace) I’ve been excited to hear that she was getting her own story! She …

Embrace (The Affair #2) by S. Layne

“How am I supposed to win a battle when I don’t know what I’m fighting?” “I’m not something to win,” I whisper, although my words are clear. He shakes his head once. “You’re everything.” I thought this book was an awesome follow up to Entice, I wasn’t sure which way the story was going to be taken but I really loved where it ended up going! This book picks up pretty much right where the first book left off after Laurie learns of the latest betrayal at the hands of a man (or men) she trusted. I won’t say what …

Entice (The Affair #1) by S. Layne

‘Three days. I’ve given myself a three-day deadline while I’m in Chicago, five hours away, for a medical technology conference. And by the time I come home, my future will be decided. Stay and forgive. Or leave.’ If only things were as simple as that! When we first meet Laurie we discover that she has suffered the worst form of betrayal by her husband and supposed best friend and she is using her upcoming business trip as a chance to think over what she’s going to do, stay and try to work things out or leave and start over. On …

Shatterproof by K.K. Weil

‘Your origin need not determine your destination.’ I loved this book! It was so well written and had such a powerful storyline. It will definitely take you on an emotional rollercoaster as these characters have to navigate the difficult topic of abuse. It’s not often you find a book that deals with the impact of abuse on family and friends of the abuser/abused. I found the topic to be fascinating because when you think of abuse you always think of what it does to the person being abused and don’t really think of the impact it has to those who …

Breaking Hammer (Inferno Motorcycle Club #3) by Sabrina Paige

“No one is beyond helping, Meia.” “I am,” she said. “I can’t be saved, Hammer.” This was the third and, I presume, last book in the Inferno MC series and wow was it heavy! I figured it would be a little heavy as Hammer tries to put his life back together after the horrible betrayal and loss he suffered in the previous book but to pile on that this book dealt with the very real and very serious issue of human trafficking and slavery. And I will say that the author did not shy away from dealing with these issues …
