REVIEW || The Dare

The Dare 2019 - Ebook Small

my review

I was so happy when I found out Conor was getting his own book as I loved him in the previous ones.
Taylor was a breath of fresh air into his life.

But omg I didn’t see that twist in the story coming. This book was so much more than a cute fluffy romance, it took that romance and lifted it up into a much bigger storyline which I loved.
I think this book is important. It’s too easy for girls to take what is happening to them, been done to them and just let it slide because it comes with a certain body that you get..
It is so much more than just having to deal with being catcalled by anyone and letting it slide..
It’s time to stand up for ourselves no matter what our body looks like.

This was incredible and thank you so much for this arc edition of The Dare!

RELEASE BLITZ || Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl

whgg rb banner

Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.

Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl, an all-new laugh-out-loud surprise baby rom com by New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is available now!

WHGG Official cover 6x9

Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.
That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.
One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.
A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.
But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.
Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.
As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.
Good thing I’m all in.
Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.

my review

I called it from the start! I knew Heidi was up to no good.

This book was a fun read just like the others by Max Monroe are. Thank you so much for the arc edition i received. I love reading about people that have met up, have had a ‘secret baby’ because it adds so much more to the book. Raquel and Harrison were amazing as a couple and I know we will see them in other books if there are going to be. I know this might be the last book in this series (I think so at least) but I can’t wait to read anything else by Max Monroe

 

WRAP UP || November

Hi lovelies,

I’m a “little” late with this post, but better late than never right? I read a total of 18 books in November, some great, some less great but all in and all I have an AMAZING month of reading behind me. Shall we have a look at the ones I read?

Man Cuffed by Sarina Bowen

1. The first book I read in November was Mancuffed by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby. I was lucky enough to receive this book as an arc and omg I loved it. I have loved this entire series but I loved the friendship that happened between the main characters and definitely even more what happened after that. I ended up giving this Star_rating_4_of_5 stars.

2. Then I picked up Tapping Her by Max Monroe. I have definitely been Tapping Her by Max Monroeloving this series a lot more than I have the first time around. Tapping her was mainly a bridge between Tapping the Billionaire and Banking the Billionaire. But of course I read that after reading the second. None the less I really loved this and ended up giving this Star_rating_4_of_5 stars as well.

Banking Her by Max Monroe3. Banking Her was the third book I read. This time I knew it would be a bridge between the second and third book in this series so I knew to read it first. Again I really liked this a lot, the humour in these books is definitely up my ally and I can really appreciate this. After this I couldn’t wait to go straight on to the next book in this series. I gave this Star_rating_4_of_5 again.

4. How could I not read Scoring the Billionaire by Max Monroe next? This series is so Scoring the Billionaire by Max Monroemuch fun, I love the banter between the characters and their group of friends. Max Monroe are such an amazing writing duo and I can’t wait to find out what they come out with in 2020, I know I will be there to read it definitely. I still have to read the novella to this book, but I love it so much. Star_rating_4_of_5

Top Secret by Sarina Bowen5. The next book was a reread for me. Or I should say a relisten, as I listened to the audiobook this time around. Top Secret by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy was one of my favourite reads earlier this year and I loved the audiobook even more. I have definitely rediscovered my love for audiobooks this year as I have listened to quite a lot of them. Star_rating_4_of_5

6. I have been an avid reader of R.S. Grey books, they’re just always fun and quirky. This His Royal Highness by R.S. Greybook was like no other, and I liked it even more so as it took place in a Disneyland type park. His Royal Highness is a book that I received as an ARC, one of the lucky recipients of one and I am so happy I got to read this book as early as I did in the end. I ended up giving this book Star_rating_5_of_5 magical stars.

The Billionaire's Forbidden Little Sister by Max Monroe7. The Billionaire’s Forbidden Little Sister by Max Monroe is next on my list. I also received this book as an arc, which meant I got to read the book a bit earlier than the regular release. I say got to, but in the end I didn’t have the time to read it until after release day. I love this series, especially since characters from the previous series return in these books.  Star_rating_5_of_5

8. Next up is one of my favourite children’s books. Not because the story is fun and Blauwe plekken by Anke de Vriesbeautiful, but because tells the story of domestic abuse. The story tells the tale of Judith who is hit and beaten by her mother. As a child I found this book so haunting as I couldn’t imagine ever having to go through that. As an adult reading this now, I went straight back to those memories and I felt so bad for her. Star_rating_4_of_5

Trying to Score by Kendall Ryan9.  Over the last couple of monthes I have really gotten into books by Kendall Ryan. Trying to Score was another amazing book in this series. I have a thing for icehockey players in books and this wasn’t any different. I can’t wait for the next book in this series as they just keep getting better and better in their own right. Star_rating_4_of_5

10. One of my favourite series by Layla Hagen is the Bennett Family series.Your Christmas Love by Layla Hagen and when I heard that there would be a novella in that series I couldn’t be happier. Our Christmas Love was such a cute story and I can’t believe I waited so long to read it (as I had the arc for a long while when I finally picked it up to read). Thank you Layla, I can’t wait for your new series to be released! Star_rating_5_of_5

Havoc at Prescott High by C.M. Stunich11. I have been on a proper C.M. Stunich reading train lately and her newest release Havoc at Prescott High was one I had to read yet. I absolutely loved it and whilst I loved it, it also meant that I would have to wait for the next book in the series for a while yet as it will not be released for a while. I love her books and she definitely got me into a whole new genre than I ever got to previously. Star_rating_4_of_5

12. Headstrong Like Us was one of my most anticipated releases for 2019. Krista and Headstrong Like Us by Krista RitchieBecca Ritchie have been two of my favourite authors the past two years and while I loved reading more about Maximoff and Farrow, I am ready to move on to the other characters in the series. I did really love baby Ripley though ❤Star_rating_4_of_5

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas13. I decided to get through the final two books in my Throne of Glass reread. Tower of Dawn is one of my favourites in the series. Whilst I really disliked Chaol before this book, this definitely turned it around for me. Yrene is so bad ass and she doesn’t put up with Chaol’s bad attitude whatsoever. I loved it and I can’t wait to go straight into Kingdom of Ash. Star_rating_5_of_5

14. Next up is Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I have never read Dirty Letters by Vi Keelandanything by them before but I really enjoyed this book. This Kindle Unlimited subscription is definitely going to be good for reading new books that I wouldn’t normally read. I like books that either start out with letters or emails. But this was a really fun one and I definitely recommend this! Star_rating_4_of_5

Daddy's Best Friend by K.C. Crowne15. Daddy’s Best Friend is a book that I picked up because I really liked the previous books by K.C. Crowne. This one was no different.  I love small rural towns where lots of things happen and I can’t wait to find out more about this town. Let’s hope that there will be many more books set in Liberty, Utah. Star_rating_3_of_5

16. One of my other anticipated releases for 2019 was the third and final The Queen of Nothing by Holly Blackbook in the Folk of the Air series by Holly Black. When Holly announced that The Queen of Nothing would be released in November instead of January 2020, I was so excited. The Wicked King was incredible and this one was a good conclusion to the trilogy. I was so happy to finally find out what would happen to Jude and Cardan. Star_rating_5_of_5

Goodbye Paradise by Nealy Wagner17. Sarina Bowen is one of my favourite authors and I really liked her Goodbye Paradise duology. I love how she writes and how she sets up the story. Whilst I remembered it being a lot longer last time I read it, I was so happy to read this once again. I can’t wait to complete my reread of her books in 2020, I haven’t got that many more to go.Star_rating_4_of_5

18. The second book Hello Forever was the final book in November and while I read it Hello Forever by Nealy Wagnerbefore, I loved it even more the second time around. Sarina has such a way with her characters and I was so glad to reread this. I really do want to read her True North series again, as some of the characters will return there or at least characters mentioned in these books. I can’t wait! Star_rating_4_of_5

And that was it, the books I read in November are finally all reviewed. I have December to write next, which will be longer as with a week left in December I already have read 22 books so far! Here we go!

WRAP UP || October

Hey loves,

I can’t believe it’s November already, how did it go by so fast?
I spent the first two weeks of October on holiday with two of my best friends, we travelled around Wales and saw the most magnificent and magical things. I can’t wait to go back one day and see even more new things. But being on holiday also meant that I in the end didn’t read as much as I thought I would. I ended up reading 15 books in October, one of which was an audiobook that I listened to when commuting to work. Let’s see what I ended up reading shall we?

Have My Baby by Taryn Quinn1. The first book that I read in October was the first book in a duet that I bought through kindle. Have My Baby tells the story of Seth and Ally. They have been best friends forever and then he asks her the impossible, to have a baby with him. Seth has a daughter already who keeps asking for a sibling and he thinks she might be the perfect person to be the babies mother. I liked this book, it wasn’t the best book I have ever read but it was cute and I enjoyed it. I ended up giving the book Star_rating_3_of_5 stars.

2. I went straight into the second book of this series. Claim My Baby tells the story of Claim My Baby by Taryn QuinnSeth’s twin brother, Oliver, and Ally’s best friend, Sage. I might have liked this book more than the first one. Oliver and Sage have a one night stand in Vegas and there are consequences to that one night. Sage discovers that she’s pregnant and tells Oliver. Of course there’s a whole lot of drama involved but I really liked that. I am however not sure if I want to read four more books in this series, because to be honest, they weren’t that good. I ended up giving this Star_rating_3_of_5 stars as well.

Moonlighter by Sarina Bowen3. Next on my list was the ARC for Moonlighter that I received. Sarina Bowen is easily one of my favourite authors out there and whenever I get the chance to read one of her books before they’re relieved I definitely will. Moonlighter is a spin-off of the Brooklyn Bruisers series by her and is also about one of the Bruisers, Bayer. He would probably be one of my favourite Bruisers and I loved his story. I can’t wait to find out more from this series. This was the easiest Star_rating_5_of_5 stars I have given.

4. October was a month of amazing new books that were being released. The Play by ElleThe Play by Elle Kennedy Kennedy was one of my most anticipated reads for 2019. I love this series so much and basically anything that Elle releases (Not even talking about the combination of Sarina and Elle!). The Play was amazing and I absolutely flew through it, sadly enough I finished it way too quickly. I really do hope that there will be more books in the series than just the three that have been released now. I really loved reading about Hunter and can’t wait to read more about his friends. It was an easy Star_rating_5_of_5 stars.

Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman5.  I have heard so much about the next book that I had to read it myself. Call Me By Your Name is one of those books I think nearly everyone has read these days, but I hadn’t read or watched either book nor movie. To be honest, I don’t think I missed that much. I felt kinda weirded out by this book, sure it was cute and I loved Elio and Oliver together, but there were some moments that grossed me out (hello, peach scene). I could’ve done without some of the scenes in this book and then it would’ve been a better book for me. I am happy I finally read it and I did watch the movie after that but I don’t think I will ever want to read the second book to this. Star_rating_3_of_5

6. After the last book, I decided to go back to an author I knew I would like. Sadly enough I Was Born Ruined by C.M. StunichI didn’t know it was a first book in a new series, and the next one isn’t out yet. C.M. Stunich is famous for writing amazing cliffhangers at the end of her books, but the one in I Was Born Ruined wasn’t one I was ready for. I really really want to read the next one which I hope will be releasing very soon! I can’t wait to find out what is going to happen next, it was just so good!Star_rating_4_of_5

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich7. And I went straight to another book by C.M. Stunich. Allison’s Adventures in Underland is book one in a trilogy that I keep seeing on her facebook page, but seeing as I am not the biggest Alice in Wonderland fan I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. I was both right and wrong. I did like it but I felt so confused by all the fantastic things in this book. Of course knowing as I started this, I knew I was going to finish the trilogy too. Star_rating_3_of_5

8. The second book in the trilogy, Allison and the Torrid Tea Party, might have beenAllison and the Torrid Tea Party by C.M. Stunich even weirder than the first one. Of course we continue on from where the first book left off and more guys are being added to Allison’s harem, all wanting to spend more time with her. To be fair, how one woman can entertain nine guys is beyond me and it wouldn’t be anything for me but she makes it work I guess? In the second book Allison goes back up to Topland and sees her sister again. Star_rating_3_of_5

Allison Shatters the Looking-Glass by C.M. Stunich9. By this point I just wasn’t sure about if I wanted to read this book. I didn’t really like the second book and I wasn’t really into it anymore. But as I only had one book left in the trilogy I kinda felt I had to read it. Allison Shatters the Looking-Glass again starts off from the end of the second book. From the start it wasn’t really my thing and by halfway through the book I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to finish it. I finished it but honestly don’t think I will read this again. Star_rating_3_of_5

10. After the last book I was in the mood for a book that I knew I would like. J. DanielsDown Too Deep by J.  Daniels writes books that just suck you in. Down Too Deep was amazing and I was so excited to read it. To be honest I love a book with a single parent, this one had two single parents and they were just incredible together. The kids were so funny together and I loved the banter and love between the hero and heroin. I loved revisiting the characters from the previous books and adding them to these ones was just love upon love Star_rating_5_of_5

Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin11. Whilst on holiday in Wales I had told myself I was allowed to by one book, Serpent & Dove as I really wanted to read it. Sadly I couldn’t find it anywhere, especially not in paperback. I ended up ordering it as soon as I got home and LOVED it. Louise and Reid were everything and this book was a ride from start to finish. I can’t wait to get the second book in my hands next year, which is definitely going to be highly anticipating! Star_rating_5_of_5

12. Last November I read Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe after my sister and aTapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe friend told me to just read it. I read it but never continued on with the rest of the series. As I wasn’t sure what to read next I decided to give the series another try and actually continue it. Tapping the Billionaire is about Kline and Georgia. I loved it the last time but I might have loved it even more the second time around. I forgot how funny these books were and how much I had wanted to read about these Billionaire Bad Boys. Star_rating_4_of_5

Addicted After All by Krista Ritchie13. It’s no secret that I love the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie. I will forever love going back into these books and find out new things again. Addicted After All is the latest in rereads for me. I did listen to this on audio and I absolutely loved it as much as I did reading and listening to it the other times. I love the journey that Lily and Loren go through to get to peace with their pasts and to get settled for their futures. To get settled enough for them having kids and having more than just the one child they have when having Maximoff. Kinda wants to make me want to reread the books for Raisy again now.Star_rating_5_of_5

14. Whilst on holiday, we visited the booktown called Hay-On-Wye. The town is filled Di Sione's Innocent Conquest by Carol Marinelli with little bookshops and it is amazing to be in when you’re a bookworm like me. Luckily my friends love reading as well and this was a stop all three of us wanted to make. I bought 3 books in this town and I decided to read one of them next. It was actually a three in one, but I read them separately. I liked Di Sione’s Innocent Conquest, it was cute but as it started on a little lie I had to get through it a little. It was a hot story and I can’t wait to read the one next in this book. Star_rating_3_of_5

Banking the Billionaire by Max Monroe15.  The last book for October is the next book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series, Banking the Billionaire. Thatch and Cassie were two of my favourite characters in the first book in this series. They were fire from the get go and I loved everything about this book. Thatch is one of the funniest guys I read about and Cassie was the perfect person to keep him on his toes. Can I just say that I really really want to get a Phil into my life?  Star_rating_5_of_5

And that wraps up my October. I loved some books, I liked some others and disliked some more. I can’t wait to see what November will bring for me from now on. I’ll see you in my next wrap up!

Wrap Up || August

Hi lovelies,

It’s that time of the month again. Time for another wrap up as the month is already over. What? I know! I can’t believe that August is already over and we’re heading into September. There’s only one month left until I fly off for a two week holiday in Wales, but for now we have another month of reading to do. Let’s get this wrap up out of the way. I read 21 books in August, I’ve not read that much since the beginning of the year. I read 17 ebooks, 1 audiobook and 3 physical books! Shall we look into it?

Baby For The Mountain Man by K.C. Crowne1. The first book that I read in August was a book by an author who was new to me. I read Baby for the Mountainman by K.C. Crowne. The plot is pretty simple. The hero in the story ‘inherits’ a baby as his best friend and his wife pass away. He moves to a small town and meets the heroine there. I loved this book. So much that I read another book by K.C. Crowne in August later on. Star_rating_4_of_5

2. The second book I read was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. It was a reread for me, but Outlander by Diana GabaldonI was in such a mood to get back into the Outlander world that I couldn’t stop myself. I just love reading about Jamie and Claire, especially how they got started. I know I won’t read the entire series again before the new book will be released, but it was nice to read some again. I am so excited to see how they’re going to film season 5, as I found the fifth book one of the most boring ones in the series! Star_rating_5_of_5

Bad Stepbrother by Mara Leigh3. I read Bad Stepbrother by Mara Leigh next. I liked this book but it sure wasn’t one of my favourite ones. Harley and Zach were hit and miss at times and the book lost me at times. I like books like these but I have definitely read better ones. The fact that the dad kept putting Zach down was really something that I hated. He was so sure that his stepson was the worst guy ever and he wasn’t, he just made some bad decisions and made up for them eventually. Harley was a bit whiny at times.Star_rating_3_of_5 

4. I have had two books by Paige Toon on my bookshelves that I hadn’t Five Years From Now by Paige Toonread yet. Which just couldn’t be that way as Paige is one of my favourite authors out there. I started with the one that was released first, Five Years From Now. Nell and Vian/Van met as their parents fall in love, and as Van’s mother passes away after an accident he moves to be with his father in Australia. Nell and Van then start meeting up every five years and you get to see them fall in love. The hardship of only seeing each other every few years and being half a world apart on other times, it’s interesting and I absolutely loved and hated this. I hated this because I wanted them to be together so badly and it just took AGES. Read this book, I loved it! Star_rating_5_of_5

If You Could Go Anywhere by Paige Toon5. Next up was If You Could Go Anywhere , this book was so cute. The heroine finds out that her long lost father isn’t so lost after finding a letter when cleaning out her late grandmother’s house. Her father lives in Italy and as she has never left the outback in Australia, her community collects opals so she can pay for her travel there. When she’s there she doesn’t only meet her father but a whole lot more. Star_rating_5_of_5

6. When one of your favourite authors releases her newest book on a surprise date, what The Best Thing by Mariana Zapatado you do? Exactly, you stop everything and start reading it right away! That was the thing with Mariana Zapata’s new book, The Best Thing, the book had me laughing so hard I was getting tears, I cried with the characters and I loved every single second of it. I couldn’t wait to read it and was so sad that it was over.Star_rating_5_of_5

Say You Still Love Me by K.A. Tucker7. August was the month of new releases by my favourite authors. The next one, Say You Still Love Me, by K.A. Tucker was the next one I read. K.A. Tucker was an instant favourite of mine as soon as I read Ten Tiny Breaths back in 2014 and since then I’ve just about read every single book by her. Her newest release was an amazing read, one that I couldn’t stop reading when I’d started it.  Star_rating_4_of_5

8. And then came another new release. Krista and Becca Ritchie quickly became two of The Last Hope by Krista Ritchiemy favourite authors and their Facebook Group is a group I am most active in. Last year they released their first book through a publisher and this August the seclusion to the duology was released. The Last Hope was one I was anticipating the entire year as I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen to Court, Mykal and Franny next and boy was I surprised! Star_rating_5_of_5

Thrive by Krista Ritchie9. Speaking of Krista and Becca, their series about the Calloways and their other halves is one of my absolute favourite series out there, by any author. I was listening to the audiobook to Thrive which is part of the addicted series and comes between part 2 and 3. I love listening to Lily and Loren’s perspectives. I forgot how much I loved them. This is an instant Star_rating_5_of_5 for me, and never will be anything else!

10. I read Always With You by Layla Hagen next. I am lucky enough to be on Layla’s VIP Always With You by Layla Hagenlist and get the chance to read her books before it gets released. At one hand that’s incredible, at the other hand it is a shame because this way I finished it half a month before it even releases. I did love it so so much though. The Connor family is such a cute family and I loved reading about them falling in love one after the other. Just like I did with the Bennett family. Star_rating_4_of_5

Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella11. After seeing the trailer for the Can You Keep A Secret movie with Tyler Hoechlin and Alexandra Daddario I was instantly in the mood to reread this book. This book by Sophie Kinsella is such a funny read. I can actually imagine spilling all my secrets to a stranger when you think you’re dying but then finding out they’re your new boss would be my absolute nightmare! Star_rating_5_of_5

12. I was lucky enough to receive an arc to Ilsa Madden-Mills newest release, I Hate You, I Hate You by Ilsa Madden-MillsIlsa is a go to author for me and I loved this book like I loved every single other book I’ve ever read by her. I love a good hate to love trope and this one was a great one. Add that to the fact that the hero was an athlete and yup, you’ve got me hook, line and sinker. Go read this book you guys, I’ve absolutely loved it. Star_rating_4_of_5

Playing for Keeps by Kendall Ryan13. Kendall Ryan releases just about a book a month and while I have no idea how she does it, I love nearly every single one of them. Playing For Keeps was no different. Part one of her newest series, this was one I was looking forward to. And of course when the jock falls in love with his teammate’s younger sister, jup, you’ve got me. Elise and Justin have known each other for years, as Justin and Elise’s older brother were best friends since they were little kids. They have always had a thing for one another but they never did anything with it due to the brother being there. I loved this and I can’t wait for the next book in this series. Star_rating_4_of_5

14. I normally post the covers with the book I’ve read but this one doesn’t have one. The Bedroom Experiment is a short novella by Kendall Ryan that was linked in the Playing For Keeps book after finishing it. I loved it but it was way way way too short. But luckily enough Kendall already told us there will be more. I loved a good stepsibling romance and this had the writing of a good one! Star_rating_3_of_5

15. Dating Mr. Right is a collection of three love stories. One that I liked but I don’t reallyDating Mr. Right by Lauren Blakely like reading insta-love stories and this… was definitely that. Lauren Blakely was a new to me author and I know she has full length books as well, which I haven’t read yet. Maybe I should start on at least one of them before I tell myself that I don’t like her books. Because telling myself that on only one book which wasn’t a full length novel on just the one couple, isn’t really fair. However it was cute, I definitely liked the first one in the book. Star_rating_3_of_5

Taboo Daddy by K.C. Crowne16. My sixteenth book in August was by the same author as the first one. K.C. Crowne writes some good books, I really liked them. Taboo Daddy was definitely one of them. The hero and heroine meet through her talking to his daughter. His daughter is deaf and she seems to feel at ease with her. His daughter wants to decorate her room and she is an interior designer that needs a job. A whole lot of things happen but of course they fall in love. I liked this, it was cute, angsty and it was a good read. Star_rating_4_of_5

17. I don’t know what made me pick this book, but Filthy Rich Boys by C.M. Stunich is a Filthy Rich Boys by C.M. Stunichhigh school bully/ reverse harem romance. Marnye transfers to a preppy boarding school after receiving a scholarship. The school is ruled by the Idols, 3 boys and 3 girls and their posse that make the rules and tell you who is in and who is out. Marnye is quickly seen as the basket case as she is there on a scholarship and they won’t let her forget it. Marnye gets bullied and all comes to a head. I enjoyed this book but it wasn’t the best way to start a series. Of course I was too involved to stop after this and dove straight into the second book. Star_rating_3_of_5

Bad, Bad Bluebloods by C.M. Stunich18. After the end of the schoolyear and all that happened, Marnye is out for blood. She is going after the Bad, Bad Blue Bloods and make sure they’re going down after all they have done to her in their first year at Burberry Prep. This book was better than the first book, I liked that Marnye finally stands up to her bullies and won’t let them get away with it. Her friends help her out where possible. I did like that the 3 Idol boys turn themselves around and stand with Marnye. Star_rating_4_of_5

19. The third book in the series, The Envy of Idols, starts at the beginning of Marnye’s The Envy of Idols by C.M. Stunichthird year at Burberry Prep. She has the three boys and her friends by her side (and maybe there’s so much more happening than just that… But she still has the 3 girls against her. However Marnye’s list of revenge is not finished yet and the third year at Burberry is set out for another great adventure. Marnye finds herself not in love with just one guy, but five and how is she ever going to choose? Star_rating_4_of_5

In the Arms of the Elite by C.M. Stunich20. And then it was time for Marnye’s final year at Burberry Prep and things are coming to an end. In the Arms of the Elite was one of the best books in this series. I loved that Marnye is happy with all five guys. I didn’t think that I would like it as much as I did. I like the ending to this book and oh my god I do hope that there will be more books with them in college as I will read them as quickly as I read this series! Star_rating_4_of_5

21. And then we are on the final book of August. It’s the newest release by Abbi Glines. Making a Play by Abbi GlinesHer “The Field Party” series is a great series if you want to get started on her books. The fifth one, Making a Play, was a great one. Aurora is deaf and starts at her twin brother’s “normal” high school. She has an instant connection with Ryker, her brother is too overprotective and her dad is a racist. However this book was incredible and I am curious to find out if there will be more books to this. Star_rating_4_of_5

And then we were through! I can’t wait to find out what I’ll end up reading in September. So many incredible books coming out this month, I am well excited for it! See you at the end of this month!

Wrap Up || July

Hi loves,

And then it was August.. Which means I get to wrap up my reading month of July. I ended up reading 19 books. 10 physical ones and 9 digital ones. I’ve had an amazing month reading wise and I can’t wait to find out what I’ll read in August (spoiler; already on book five for this month). Anyway, let’s kick this wrap up off shall we?

Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne1. The first book that I read in July was the then newest release by Lauren Layne. Lauren is one of my absolute go-to authors when I need a funny romance book that I’ll finish quickly. Passion on Park Avenue was nothing less than that. I absolutely loved it. It was fun, quirky and I flew through it! Star_rating_4_of_5

2. The second book that I read in July was a reread of a book that I read aAt Any Price by Brenna Aubrey few years ago. At Any Price is a great book if you’re in the mood for something funny yet mysterious. I like the prompt where the heroine sells her virginity, because she takes matters in her own hand and makes sure it’s hers to give and not someone else’s to take.  Star_rating_4_of_5

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston3. Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston might be my favourite book in July, and really high up there on my list for 2019 books. It was so cute! Alex and Henry made me swoon and I know I will be rereading this book many of times now I know how much I love it. Even the audiobook was incredible, I listened and read at the same time. Star_rating_5_of_5

4. The fourth book was another reread. Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy is part ofHim by Sarina Bowen a duet and I never read the second book in said duet. Because I wasn’t really sure what the first book was about, I decided to reread it before going straight into the second one this time. I loved it a lot more this time around than I did the first time. Wes and Jamie are so cute together! Star_rating_4_of_5

Us by Sarina Bowen5. And straight into the second one. Us was even better than Him was, and I have no idea why I had to wait this long to read it.  I loved reading about what happened after Him ended. I mean I already knew some of it as I read the spin off series where they’re mentioned every once in a while but it was nice to finally know for sure what has happened.Star_rating_5_of_5

6. At the beginning of the year I decided that I was going to read or at least try to read as The Book Thief by Markus Zusakmany of my owned books that I still had to read. Currently there are at least 192 books on my shelves that I still have to read. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is a book that I read a long long time ago but never again after watching the movie. The movie kind of ruined the book for me. I decided to pick the book up again but I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I did the first time I read, which is why I only gave it Star_rating_3_of_5 this time around.

The Prenup by Lauren Layne7. Lauren Layne released The Prenup in July and I dove straight in. I was so excited for this book and I couldn’t wait to read this. It was the cutest book and as always Lauren Layne did it again. I love these kind of fake marriage kind of books, because of course they turn into real ones. This one was no different. I just love them. Star_rating_5_of_5

8. After finishing the third season of Stranger Things that ended with that Het oneindige verhaal by Michael Endescene between Dustin and Suzy, I just had to read Het Oneindige Verhaal (The Neverending Story) by Michael Ende. I also watched the movie, which I loved as much as I’ve always loved it. I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed the movie which is why it got Star_rating_4_of_5 stars instead of the full five, but it was still incredible.

London Belongs to Me by Jacquelyn Middleton9. I’ve been really good at crossing off books that I own off of my to be read list. The next book I read was London Belongs To Me by Jacquelyn Middleton. It was a cute story but I could’ve enjoyed it more if the heroine in the story wasn’t as whiny as she was. All that happened, could’ve gone so much faster. None the less I liked the book but I’m not sure if I’ll read the second book. Star_rating_4_of_5

10. J. Daniels has been an author that when I read my first book by her, I instantly loved. Hit the Spot by J.  DanielsYet I’ve had two more books by her on my shelves and it took me over a year to continue reading them. And again, like I had with the Sarina and Elle book, I can’t believe I didn’t pick it up faster. Hit the Spot was so cute and I loved it. I flew through it and I dove straight into the third book in this series. They’re all standalones but you’ll see the characters from other books appear in the one you’re reading. Star_rating_4_of_5

Bad for You by J.  Daniels11. Bad For You was the third book in the series by J. Daniels. I might have loved this one even more than I did Hit the Spot but that had all to do with the fact that the couple was hyped up in the second book. I absolutely loved this and I can’t wait to read the fourth one, alas that won’t come out until October but I’ll be patiently waiting for it anyway!  Star_rating_4_of_5

12. As a subscriber of the newsletter that Elle Kennedy sends out, I was able to read Say Say Yes by Elle KennedyYes. It was only a novella and that’s the only reason why this gets Star_rating_4_of_5 stars. Because it was too darn short. I absolutely loved this. I read through it in less than half an hour and I would’ve loved to read 300 more pages if it was a full length novel.

Viper by Bex Hogan13. Book number thirteen of July is one that took me by surprise. I have been a subscriber to the Fairyloot bookboxes for the past year and a half. I decided to cancel my subscription at the end of June but I had received Viper by Bex Hogan I believe in February? I hadn’t picked it up yet but I decided to and absolutely loved this. I don’t often read YA books anymore but I did like this. I hope that Venom will be as good as this one was. Star_rating_4_of_5

14. Next I ticked off another unread book from my shelves. This was a Beauty and the Beastly by Alex FlinnBeast retelling that had been made into a movie with Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens that I loved when I first seen it. That being said I did like the movie more than I liked the book and that is something that hardly ever happens with me. Beastly was slow and I reaaaaally didn’t like the character of the witch. I know the book is part of a series with her, but I could’ve done without her. Star_rating_3_of_5

The Billionaire Boss Next Door by Max Monroe15. My sister has been trying to get me to read a Max Monroe book for ages as she loves them a lot. I did read one earlier this year but never more than that. I read The Billionaire Boss Next Door because it was part of a starting up series which I ended up loving so much. I love a good hate to love story and this one was incredible. Star_rating_4_of_5

16. The next one in the series by Max Monroe was My Brother’s My Brother's Billionaire Best Friend by Max MonroeBillionaire Best Friend which I might love even more than I loved the first book in the series. It was so cute and I do love the Brother’s BFF trope. This wasn’t any different. I absolutely flew through it. I could’ve loved it a little more if the hero wouldn’t doubt himself so much and just go for the heroine, because it was obvious that they belonged together. Star_rating_5_of_5

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata17. Ever since I started reading Mariana Zapata’s books in October last year, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me has been one of my favourites. I just love broody Aiden and spitfire Vanessa. The two of them are amazing together and they make each other better. There’s no one, in my opinion, that can write a slowburn romance like Mariana can. If I could reread these books every single day and read it like it was the first time reading it I would love it! Star_rating_5_of_5

18. And then I finally started and finished the final book by Mariana Zapata that I still Wait for It by Mariana Zapatahad left to be read. Wait for It tells the story of Diana and Dallas. Diana is mentioned in The Wall of Winnipeg as she’s Vanessa’s best friend and I was so happy to read about her HEA. After all that happened in Winnipeg it was nice to read that she too got an ending that she deserved. Wait for It Was cute and I loved it a lot! Star_rating_4_of_5

The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary19. And the final book that I read in July was The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. It’s a cute trope, Tiffy and Leon live in the same house, but they’ve never met. They share the same bed, Tiffy has the bed/apartment from 6 at night until 9 in the morning and Leon has it during the day. Of course they were going to meet one day and it was the cutest thing ever. I loved this so much, Beth had an amazing debut novel and I can’t wait to read more by her. Star_rating_5_of_5

And that’s it. That’s the wrap up for July. I can’t believe I’ve been reading this much but I’ve loved nearly every single one of them. One more than another but over all I’m a happy reader! I’ll be seeing you next month!

REVIEW || Fighting For You

FIGHTING FOR YOU, the next book in Layla Hagen’s Connor Family series, is available now! Get your hands on Jace and Brooke’s story today!

About FIGHTING FOR YOU

Jace Connor has received many titles in his career, and enjoyed them all. Although, he’s working on changing the last one. There’s more to Jace than the media portrays—a man who loves his tight-knit family, being his nieces’ and nephews’ favorite uncle.

The reformed party-boy is now steering clear of anything that could blemish his reputation. But when the coach’s gorgeous daughter is hired on as the team’s new sponsorship manager, keeping on the straight and narrow becomes impossible. Her warm and bubbly personality coupled with her sexy-as-sin body makes her irresistible.

Brooke Derringer wants to prove to everyone that she wasn’t hired due to her personal connections. She’s determined to keep things strictly business and focus only on work. She learned the hard way that the office isn’t the place to make friends.

But a certain smoking hot–and bossy–soccer player is determined to change her mind. Surprising her with clandestine dinners and late-night gym sessions, Jace is inescapable.

For the first time in his life, Jace wants more. He wants the whole package…with the one woman he can’t have. But Jace doesn’t let that deter him. He’s determined to fight for her. And he will.

my review

Finally the book I was waiting on, I’ve loved Jace in every single mention in other books and I am so happy to finally read his book! The Connor family have crept their way into my heart and I think I might’ve been rooting for Jace from the very start.

His romance with the coach’s daughter was a must read from the get go. Now you might know that I love sports romances and especially when there’s a small element of a forbidden romance in it, I just love it so much more.

Jace and Brooke were cute and adorable from the start, amazing in the middle and breath taking at the end. I hope to read a lot more from them in the future, even if it’s just mentions in other books by Layla!

I can’t believe there’s only one more book left in the Connor family series, but I can’t wait to find out what Layla is going to come up with next. Every single book that I have read by Layla since I first read any thing by her, have been absolutely incredible and I feel so lucky to receive these books. I love devouring them and always feel sad afterwards when I’ve finished them!

 

R&R || Coldhearted Boss

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, COLDHEARTED BOSS, is available now – be sure to grab your copy today!

About COLDHEARTED BOSS

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

my review

Coldhearted boss might have been my all time favourite by Rachel. I’ve absolutely loved every single second of it and I couldn’t stop reading. Taylor and Ethan were a hit from the get go and let’s be honest, I am a sucker for a good enemy to lovers trope in a romance book. Taylor has been dealt a hand full of crap in life and the way she deals with it is admirable. Ethan is such an ass to her, based on what happens in the start of the book I can understand this, but you know, it is a brilliant start to the book!

This book was all I wanted in a good book, Rachel doesn’t disappoint once again. Thank you so much for this book and I can’t wait to find out what else you come up with. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Coldhearted Boss, in exchange for an honest review.

 

REVIEW || The Boyfriend Bargain

BB - BT banner.jpg

“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.
If only he knew she was alive.
Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.
Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.
But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.
Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.
There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”
“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”
“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.
Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”
Another grin. “Liar.”

my review

Ilsa has been one of my go to authors for a few years now, ever since I was lucky enough to receive an arc to her Dirty English book. She writes with a style that just pulls me in and that doesn’t let me go even after I’ve finished the book.
The Boyfriend Bargain isn’t anything different. I love a good book with the main characters either having a bargain or some kind of deal going on. Especially when the deal involves not falling in love with the other person, because duh, of course that happens anyway.
Zack and Sugar were such a cute couple from the get go, even when they were just pretending to be. I loved their banter and how everything was set up.
And hello, add this all to Zack being a HOT hockey player and it’s everything I love wrapped up in one incredible book. I was so upset when I finished the book, because as usual, I finished it way way way too quickly.

I can’t wait to find out more from Ilsa in any other books that she will write and put out into the world.

 

WRAP UP || MARCH 2019

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my third wrap up of 2019. I had an amazing reading month and I can’t wait to let you know which books I read. I didn’t read as many books as I read in the previous two months, but I did end up reading books that I really really enjoyed. I read a total of 17 books in March in the span of 31 days. I read the following books in March, with a little thought on them and my star rating on them! Here we go, in order:

Preppy by T.M. Frazier1. The first book I finished in March was the second book in a trilogy that I love and reread this year. Preppy (or The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater) is written by one of my favourite authors out there, T.M. Frazier. If you love adult romance with a lot of extra things, go read it. It is not for the faint hearted though! Star_rating_5_of_5

2. The second book that I read was one I received as an arc. R.S. Grey is Make Me Bad by R.S. Greyone of my go-to authors when it comes to romantic comedies. I love her books and Make me bad was one that is up in my top 10 by her. To be fair, I don’t think I’ve found a book by her that I hated! I ended up giving this Star_rating_4_of_5 stars, my review is already up on my blog, if you’re interested in more!

Preppy by T.M. Frazier3. After Make Me Bad I made sure to finish out the trilogy by reading the final part in Preppy and Dre’s story. I forgot so many details about these book that I was so happy to dive back into them. I loved revisiting with my favourites and rekindling friendships with others. This was another Star_rating_5_of_5 stars from me.

4. After reading Make You Mine back in December last year, I couldn’t waitMake Me Yours by Tia Louise to find out more about Remington and what he would get up to. Add that to a daddy/nanny trope and I am absolutely sold! I loved this books so much, there was sas, there was a cute child and there was a hot romance. Heck yeah I was there for it! Star_rating_4_of_5

Surprise, Baby! by Lex Martin5. Fifth was another arc that I received. I was lucky enough to receive an arc by Lex Martin last year and when I saw this one, I couldn’t not ask for it. The book was so funny and going from hate to love in a snowstorm and what follows was what I loved about Surprise, Baby. The book, written by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam was so funny and witty. I gave it: Star_rating_4_of_5

Extra Credit by Sarina Bowen6. When my sister told me that there was a book coming out with three novellas by Sarina Bowen, I jumped on it and read it. We already knew two of the novellas as they were previously published, but there was a new one for Graham and Rikker and oh my heart.. It was the cutest, most heartbreaking novella and I had heart eyes the entire time. Star_rating_4_of_5

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata7. Seventh up in March was another book by Mariana Zapata. During the last few months I’ve been slowly making my way through her books and Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin was one of the few I still had left to go. I liked this a lot although not as much as I’ve loved others by her. None the less this book received a full Star_rating_5_of_5 from me.

8. I had heard a lot of buzz about Daisy Jones & the Six and absolutely jumped on that Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reidbook when it arrived on my doorstep. It released this month and all the reviews I’d seen and heard about it absolutely did it justice. This book was all I love in a book. There will be a full review coming this week, but Star_rating_5_of_5 all the freaking way!

The Hookup Handbook by Kendall Ryan9. After reading Boyfriend for Hire last month, I was so curious about Case and his story that I pre-ordered that book straight away. I was a happy camper when the book appeared on my kindle app at midnight and I was able to dive straight in. Case and Sienna were so cute and funny and I liked this book a lot! I kinda want Sienna’s brother to have a book now as well, we’ll see if that is going to happen! Star_rating_4_of_5

10. I have not always been the biggest poetry fan, but Amanda Lovelace and Rupi Kaur The Mermaid's Voice Returns in This One by Amanda Lovelaceare up there amongst my favourites. When I found out that Amanda was coming out with a new bind up, I HAD to get that book badly. It arrived on my doorstep and I dove straight in. Her poetry is raw, builds up and sometimes is all too familiar. Her lines are so beautiful and I can’t wait to find out more. Star_rating_4_of_5

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid11. After loving Daisy Jones, I was really curious about The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I had heard a LOT of good things about this book but had yet to pick it up until that point. I regret waiting that long because god was Reid able to write a gutwrenching beautiful story about a Hollywood actress and all that she went through, but maybe even more the author of her biography and her story. I am so excited to find out what Taylor Jenkins Reid comes up with next! Star_rating_5_of_5

12. Next up is a book that I received through a Dutch publisher to review for De Leesfabriek. De eeuwige tijd by Deborah HarknessI have been a reviewer for them since 2014 and I am loving most of the books that I receive through them. I gave this book Star_rating_3_of_5 stars because I liked it but I was confused through a lot of the book and I didn’t really enjoy this as much as I enjoyed the original trilogy.

Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald by J.K. Rowling13. To read another book that was on my TBR pile for a long time, I read the screenplay to the second Fantastic Beasts film, The Crimes of Grindelwald. I liked reading it but what made the book for me were the illustrations that are seen throughout this book. Those were adding the third star for me.Star_rating_3_of_5

14. By now, I own 5 books by V.E. Schwab and had yet to read one of them. Vicious by V.E. SchwabAfter watching a booktube video that also talked about Vicious I decided to finally pick it up and dive in. I LOVED this so much, there was action, revenge, supernatural and I love how the EO’s come to be in this story. I will have to pick up Vengeful soon to find out what is going to happen to Victor and Eli next. I am very excited! Star_rating_4_of_5

The Understatement of the Year by Sarina Bowen15. At the start of the year I began a reread of the Ivy Years by Sarina Bowen, as I didn’t continue on after the second book and after finishing the novellas earlier this month I was so excited to dive into Rikker and Graham’s story again. They held back their attraction so much and when I finished I realised why I loved reading their novella so much, because we find out what happens after this book. The Understatement of the Year received a full Star_rating_5_of_5 stars from me!

16. I couldn’t not continue on this series after finishing Understatement. Bella was one of The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowenmy favourite characters throughout that book and I was so excited to find out what was going to happen to her in this book. I was not disappointed one bit. Bella and Rafe were so cute together. When Bella goes through her hardships, Rafe was the perfect friend to her and I too would’ve fallen hard for him! Star_rating_4_of_5

The Fifteenth Minute by Sarina Bowen17. And then the last book of March and the last book in the Ivy Years series. After meeting Lianne in the previous book I was, again, really curious to find out what her story would be. I got so angry at her agent, I loved her relationship with DJ Trevi, although I would’ve loved it if he would’ve just told her from the start what was going again, because I think out of ALL his friends, Lianne would’ve been the one to understand him. This book was incredible! Star_rating_4_of_5

And that is my reading bit of March wrapped up! What do you think? How many books did you end up reading this month, were there any good ones or bad ones that you really didn’t enjoy? Let me know in the comments!
