About MAKE ME BAD

I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.
As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.
The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less. My wardrobe consists of colorful sundresses and baggy jeans. I might as well have a Post-it stuck to my forehead that reads: Yup, she’s a virgin.
An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets, until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.
Oof.
Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing, dangerously handsome—the type of man who’s never spent a single moment worrying about the opinions of others. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.
No more Friday nights sprawled out on the couch in my comfiest pajamas. No more wishing I had the courage to misbehave.
Everyone thinks Ben is going to ruin me.
They think he’ll chew me up and spit me out.
Well, Ben…go ahead.
Tempt me. Taunt me.
Make me bad.

My Review

First of all, I will pick up any book by Rachel whenever it either comes out or like this one I’ve been lucky enough to receive an arc copy of the book.
I first started reading her books about 3-4 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Make Me Bad had me excited from the moment I read the synopsis and it did not disappoint! Madison and Ben were a match from the get go. I love the small town vibe with the overprotective father and brother.
What I loved even more was the fact that there was some sort of “bet” going on, which is one of my favourite tropes in books.

Rachel you’ve done it again! I will forever recommend your books to anyone I know, and I can’t wait to see what else is to come!

All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 23rd

Probst-AllRoadsLeadtoYou-28134-CV-FT-V3.jpg

Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.
After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.
How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll only be there long enough to break it?
So Harper and Aiden agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.

JANUARY WRAP UP

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my first wrap up of 2019. I’ve decided that I really really want to get this blog thing of the ground more than I am currently doing and I thought this might be a good way to start it off. I’ve always been a fast reader and normally read about 150 books a year. However I started off 2019 reading 21 books in just the first month. If I keep this up (which I do hope) I will be finishing the year off with nearly 250 books, which would be incredible but as my goal is set at 100 books now, nowhere near expected to be reached.

In January I read the following books, with a little thought on them and my star rating on them! Here we go, in order:

Run to Me by Lilian Monroe1. The first book I read in 2019 was the last book in a trilogy by Lilian Monroe. Run to Me was a book that I loved but I’m not really into the insta love thing. Therefore the book only received 3 stars from me!

Rinkeldekink by Martine Bijl

2. My second book of the year was a book I read for review. Rinkeldekink is written by one of my favourite Dutch actresses/presenters and tells about her stroke and her recovery from this. It was beautiful, but my review is already up so go read that if you’re interested! I gave this book 3 stars.

Rookie In Love by Sarah White3. My third read was a book I received through NetGalley. Rookie in Love was a book that I thought I’d absolutely love but wasn’t that at all.. Everything happened SO fast and I ended up giving it only 2 stars.

4. When Dimple Met Rishi has been on my tbr pile for at least two years When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menonand I finally picked it up after putting it on my PopSugar challenge list for 2019. I ended up liking it but not loving it as I’ve well and truly outgrown my YA comtemporaries! I gave it 3 stars, it was cute but I didn’t love it.

The Year We Fell Down by Sarina Bowen5. The Year We Fell Down was a reread for me, although technically I listened to it through Audible. Sarina Bowen is one of my favourite authors out there and I can never get enough of. I gave this audiobook 5 stars and dove right into the second one after finishing.

6. My sixth book was The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. Another book that was on The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoonmy shelves for a long while but which I ended up not liking too much. Another YA book that yeah I’ve well and truly grown out off and which I will be donating as I don’t see myself reading it ever again. I ended up giving it 3 stars.

The Year We Hid Away by Sarina Bowen7. As said earlier, my next audiobook was the second book in the Ivy Years series by Sarina Bowen, that being The Year We Hid Away. I LOVE this book so much, every single book by Sarina is able to drag you right into the story and I am in love with these characters so much. Another 5 stars from me.

8. Next up was a series that I started years ago but never finished, and boyCaptive Prince by C.S. Pacat did I regret not finishing this up! Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat starts off this series with a fictional bang. While I read this one before, I forgot so much about this book already and I am so happy I decided to reread this and not skip it and go straight for the second one. This got 4 stars from me.

Prince's Gambit by C.S. Pacat9. Of course I continued on with the series this time and it was Prince’s Gambit ’s turn for a read. I had not read this one before and omg do I regret it now.. this was already so much more intriguing than the first and it dragged me from the very first page. I was so excited to see what would happen to Damen and Laurent that I finished it in 2 days and dove straight into the third. 5 big happy stars from me.

10. Of course Kings Rising was next and boy was it a great one. This book will go down Kings Rising by C.S. Pacatas the book that I lost all my post it tabs on. There were so many amazing bits that I want to remember that my entire book is covered in tabs and all the colours! Another 5 stars and an enormous book hangover to boot.

Lingus by Mariana Zapata11. Lingus by Mariana Zapata was the book that dragged me out of said book hangover and had me laugh out loud so many times. The thing that I love most about Mariana’s books is that they’re such slow burners that by the end of it my heart aches for the release and I loved this one just as much! It got 4 stars from me, I read and listened to this book on and off ❤

12. Next was Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata. Can you tell that I love her Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapataalready? Dear Aaron is told mainly in emails, texts and IM messages and I am HERE for that. I love books that develop through emails, they’re so cute. I loved this book and gave it 4 stars.

Tangled Like Us by Krista Ritchie13. My review on GR for Tangled Like Us read as followed: Omg omg omg omg omg… Jane and Thatcher.. what did I just read.. and is it bad I already want to go for a reread? That was incredible! and I stick to that point. 5 stars from me for Jane Cobalt and Thatcher Moretti.

14. Overnight Sensation by Sarina Bowen is next, and guess what; I lovedOvernight Sensation by Sarina Bowen this so much. Heidi and Jason were so cute even though Jason resisted for so long haha. I had a clue about her dad from the very start and turned out I was right! Thank you so much Sarina, again, for the arc (through Nina of course) and I will be on the lookout for the next book!

The Wicked King by Holly Black15. The Wicked King by Holly Black was highly anticipated after reading The Cruel Prince last year. And boy it didn’t disappoint! I can’t believe we’ll have to wait more than a year before we get to read the next book! I can’t wait, and of course this got 5 stars from me!

16. One of my go to romance/NA authors is K.A. Tucker so whenever sheBe the Girl by K.A. Tucker brings out a new book, I will be the first one to read it. Be The Girl was no exception, even if it was a YA book instead of NA. I loved this book so much. Cassie’s character, was incredible and as someone who works with people on the spectrum, I recognized SO much in her. I definitely recommend this! I give this 4 stars

The Deal by Elle Kennedy17. Next up is another reread by one of my favourite authors, namely Elle Kennedy. The Deal is such a cute book. It’s not complicated but it’s sweet and you get sucked into the story right away. I first read this 4 years ago and I think i fell in love all over again. 5 stars!

18. The Mistake is the second book in the Off Campus series by Elle The Mistake by Elle KennedyKennedy and swoon I want my very own Logan. I don’t care if he’s flawed or whatever is going on with him, I want someone like him haha. Another 5 stars

The Score by Elle Kennedy19. Next up, The Score, which tells the long awaited story of Dean Di Laurentis and it had another swoon worthy guy in it. Allie and Dean are such opposites and therefore are so good together. I am so in love with this series and all these characters! Again, 5 stars.

20. And fourth one is, The Goal, after reading a little bit about Tucker and Sabrina at the end of the The Goal by Elle Kennedythird book, I couldn’t not dive straight into this. Mind that I was at home with the flu and while I wasn’t sleeping I was reading because these characters man ❤ Another big fat 5 stars.

Taming Him by Kennedy Fox21. The last book I finished this month, was Taming Him by Kennedy Fox. A new author to me but I read so much about them on bookstagram that I couldn’t not finally start this. I realized after finishing this that there’s other books that precede this one but I didn’t care as it is a stand alone series so it didn’t matter too much. I ended up giving this 4 stars.

I did start my 22nd book, which is King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo but I won’t be finishing that one in January, which is okay. I will wrap it up at the end of February hehe. If you made it through to the end of this book, you’re a trooper. Thank you so much!

Love,
Daphne

 

RELEASE BLITZ || HOTSHOT DOC by R.S. GREY

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, HOTSHOT DOC, is available now! Find out more about it below and pick up your copy today!

About HOTSHOT DOC

Dr. Russell has a bad reputation around our hospital. The scrub techs say he’s cold-blooded, the nurses say he’s too cocky for his own good, and the residents say he’s the best surgeon in the world—really, just a swell guy!—on the off chance he’s within earshot.

I try to avoid him and his temper at all costs. It’s just as easy to admire his sexy, grip-it-while-he’s-ravishing-you hair and chiseled jaw from a healthy distance, preferably from the other end of the hallway…half-hidden behind a plant.

Unfortunately, my plan crumbles when my trusty ol’ boss decides to swap his white coat for a Hawaiian shirt. His retirement leaves me with two terrible options: switch specialties and spend months retraining, or take an open position as Dr. Russell’s surgical assistant.

That means I have to stand near him in the OR for hours on end and anticipate his every need without letting his biting words and bad attitude intimidate me. Oh, and as if that’s not difficult enough, my silly crush on him—the one I’ve tried to stomp on until it disappears—might just be reciprocated.

It’s fine.

I’m fine.

I take my job seriously. There will be no smoldering bedroom eyes across the operating table, no angry almost-kisses in the storage closet. (Well, no more of those.)

What’s the phrase? An apple a day keeps the doctor away?

Maybe I should go for a whole damn bushel.

MY REVIEW

First off I want to thank Rachel for doing her magic and a. writing this precious book and b. making it appear on my kindle two days before it’s releasedate so I could read and review it for everyone!
If you know me, you know that I like easy going soppy romances, not always but I do love every single one of Rachel’s books and many more like it.

This one was no exception, the romance between Bailey and Matthew was there quickly and can I say that I simply love it when the heroine does something like taking care of younger siblings? I had that when I met Will in Slammed by Colleen Hoover and many more and I love it in this book as well. Bailey hasn’t had the easiest life and I believe that a fourteen year old sister won’t ever make it easier, let alone when you add in her job as a surgical assistant. A job I’d love to try for a day but I don’t think I’d ever be able to do!

Matt Russel seems like the horrible doctor in the hospital but Bailey quickly turns that around in her own way, a way that even Dr Russel doesn’t see coming and I LOVED that. The romance didn’t start right away but it started out easy and slowly before exploding quickly after and I read this book in nearly one sitting (had my own job not taken my time away from the book).

Rachel you have done it again and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Thank you so much for putting this book out into the world and for granting a bookworm like Josie a place in your books, because I loved her from the very start!

Review:

While reading the Bennett family series, I loved getting snippets of the Connor family. Especially where Landon would come to family gatherings.
This book tells the story of Landon and Maddie. Landon lost his wife four years ago and since then has lost himself in his job.
Maddie owns a landscaping business and is working on Landon’s sister Val’s yard when Landon arrives for a two week vacation.
It doesn’t take long for them to hit it off and oh. my. god. was it a whirlwind!

Layla does an amazing job making you fall in love with all of the characters. She did so with her other series, which books I devoured every single time they’d be released and I have a feeling the same will happen with this new series.
I loved having the characters from the other books appearing in this book, it was nice not to have to say goodbye to the Bennett family just yet.

Layla, thank you again for another perfect romantic read. Is it time for book two yet?

TB&TBEbookCover About THE BEAU & THE BELLE
Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies.
I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras.
That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window.
A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser.
Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way.
Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me.
My old friend, Mr. Fortier.
But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished.
When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart.
Let’s hope he knows how to guard his.

Review

Rachel has been one of my favourite authors of the last two years. I’ve loved every single one of her books one way or another. That being said I was beyond excited to get this review copy. The Beau and the Belle is the latest romance by R.S. Grey, the book starting in Beau and Lauren’s past, 10 years in the past to be exact. Beau moves into the apartment that Lauren’s parents rent out on their property. Beau is a law student at Tulane, Lauren is a high school senior at one of the local private schools.
They start getting along and while Lauren’s crushing on Beau big time, the age gap is preventing anything from happening between the two of them. Then Hurrican Andrea happens and all of New Orleans is evacuated. Both their schools are ruined by the hurricane and they have to head off to different schools meaning they don’t see each other anymore.

Ten years later we meet up with Lauren who is going to open her own art gallery/coffee house in New Orleans after studying Art History and working in NYC. While at one of her parent’s parties she runs into Beau Fortier again. Beau started his own company which finances people that were hit by Hurricane Andrea in New Orleans. While Lauren is seeing her old crush from high school, the two of them can’t seem to stay away from each other. Lauren who is now 28 is no longer a child and Beau can’t seem to stay away from her any longer.

I have to say that from the very first start that I loved this book. Rachel has had a place in my heart from the very first book I read (The Duet back in August 2015), this book made sure I renewed that love. I love the whole forbidden love story line and this one was no different. While nothing really happens when they’re younger, I knew that as soon as they were older it would happen like fireworks. Beau’s mother is such a funny character and I was with her on the fact that Lauren and Beau just belonged together!

I recommend this to anyone who’s in for a fun, entertaining, beautiful story which takes place in New Orleans. The book read like a movie, I finished it too quickly but I loved it so much that I couldn’t stop reading it in the first place. Beau and Lauren stole my heart and I want to read more about them. However the book had a good ending which left me satisfied so well! ❤ Is it time for the next book yet?
