Review: The Kiss Quotient

The Kiss Quotient The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

Well, this book. I am not even sure where to start to be honest, this book has so much buzz surrounding it and its also been a my most anticipated reads of the year list. It was the perfect blend of sweet and steamy, and some drama. But for me I couldn’t connect. I liked the characters enough, I just didn’t love it like so many others have.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time reading it, it was fast paced which I really enjoy, the romance its self wasn’t enough for me. I loved the representation of Stella being autistic. I liked Michael, he was enjoyable. It is a very easy read and I appreciate that.
Each to their own, that’s the way I look at it. I am defiantly looking forward to seeing how the next book is like.
I just wished I had loved the plot as much as everyone else has, the escort thing was what bugged me the most. For Helens debut and winning Romance of the year award on goodreads is spectacular. I understand now the hype and buzz surrounding TKQ.
4/5 stars

JOCK RULE by Sara Ney - Review Blitz













JOCK RULE
JOCK HARD #2
By Sara Ney
Release Day: DEC 6th

Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.
He's a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.
The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora "Teddy" Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she'd been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry "friends."
Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He's a goner.
Teaching her the RULES for winning a jock will be the easy part. Not falling in love with her is going to be a losing game.

Jock Rule by Sara Ney
Hey, hello and thank you for stopping by.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, yes that would be my 3 stars on the newest Sara Ney book in her Jock Hard series.
So, it wasn’t that I didn’t like the story I just couldn’t connect with the characters for some reason. I liked the dude Kip, I think it was the chick Teddy who annoyed me but not, I don’t know this always happens to me when I haven’t read the author before, I was luck enough to grab Jock Rule as an e-arc from the tour company.
I giggled a lot, and I swooned a wee bit too, I did not like Teddy’s friend Mariah she was a bitch, no one in their life must put up with a shit friend like that.
This story was cute though, about a wallflower, Teddy she is socially awkward and shy, and Kip is this hot bearded rich dude, in hiding because he doesn’t want to be used for his money.
Anyways they meet and form a funny friendship, which leads them to fall in love.
Everyone will love this story, I rated it overall a 3.75. Looking back on it now I don’t think it was the characters, that I didn’t connect with I think it was the age they were and the setting, I have grown out of my University romance phase. In saying that,it flowed nicely and no angsty drama which is 100% perfect. For a first-time reader of this author I will check out her other books sometime in the future.

HOTSHOT DOC by R.S Grey Release Day Review

HOTSHOT DOC by R.S Grey

Hi, hello thank you for stopping by.






This book you guys, this book!

I really can’t say enough, I’ve only ever read one other R.S Grey book before this one and I loved it just as much, HOTSHOT DOC wasn’t what I was expecting, and I am so glad I was able to read an e-arc.

With this new instalment from RS Grey, you will be laughing, swooning and just overall having a fantastic time. Not once did I glance down to see how far I was at or was once tempted to put it down. I gobbled this story down, and then wanted to read more from her.

I loved that it was fast paced, the romance was stellar, and I haven’t read a hospital setting in so long this one sets the bar quite high. RS Greys writing style is lit, I absolutely love the way she writes and her characters you will fall in love with.

This is a rom com that everyone should read, she nailed it. If you haven’t read this author yet you must, I highly recommend her and that’s just from reading two books by her. I love this was sort of enemies to lovers, but not. The plot was spot on, characters Bailey and Matt (Dr Russel…aka… Dr Hotshot) and then we have Bailey’s 14-year-old sister who she the guardian of Josie, she is a hoot! I loved that this book taught me something lol all that dr. talk I was like this girl has done her research. I didn’t even know there was a thing as a PA.

Chemistry was bouncing from the pages, I just can’t put into words how much I adored this story.

Overall 5/5 stars.

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 chiselled 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 smouldering 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.

Review: Until Cobi

Until Cobi Until Cobi by Aurora Rose Reynolds
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

BOOM

What a different Until her/him story. I loved it but it felt different. I cant explain the different, maybe because I cant remember Cobi a lot from the other books, but honestly this was such a fun read.

This is part of our wonderful Until series, but you can actually read this on its own, kind off. All the characters do show up from all the previous books, my opinion would be to read them from the start, it makes more sense. ARR knows how to write beautiful heart warming stories, with the right amount of romance, sass and drama.

Cobi and Hadley are legit perfect for each other, Cobi has become a new favourite Alpha. And Hadley was pure delight to read about she was funny, sassy and quite hot, both of them together had that chemistry going on. I love re visiting this world, to see what's happening with everyone, even the parents, because that where it all started.

Overall was great, I am looing forward to the next one.

If you have ever read Lauren Danes, Chases Brothers series... this is almost like that. Well the original 4 books is, and then this series are stories of there children. I love small town, big family, insta love books!

Review: The Darkest Captive

The Darkest Captive The Darkest Captive by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hi, Hello. Thanks for reading my review.

Its not new news that I LOVE Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld. This is the newest edition to the series at 14.5 and MAN oh MAN I wasn't expecting to love this as much as I did. Because well it is Galen, but I was won over from the very beginning.

This book has everything that I love in a Lords story, and I cant praise it enough.

Legion and Galen are two of the most unlikely couples I thought we would be reading about, but they are so good, I loved both of them individually and together. I loved how there story was told, and I love how it was fast paced and you got the drift of things. I was confused at start because I wasn't expecting to love Galen, who we are meant to hate.

I love how we see ALL the lords interact, forgive and move on.

To be honest I was quite captivated with the hole story, I am up to date with the series and this one fits perfectly in the mix, I am so curious to see what happens now, I want to know more about William!

Galen is different to the other lords, where they are all possessed by one demon he is possessed by two, False Hope and Jealousy. Legion is funny she finds herself again and it is wondrous, I really have always liked her as a character in this serious.

I am left with so many questions for the future and I cant wait!

Review: Fumbled Love

Fumbled Love Fumbled Love by Lila Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fumbled Love by Lila Rose

LORDY!

What do I say here, I can’t even with that book, it was a cracker of a story! I loved it, it was perfect. The writing, the characters everything. I honestly think Lila should stick with Rom Coms, she executes it every time. I have been reading her work off and on over the years and I really enjoy and prefer her rom coms.

An English teacher and a football star, what a perfect mix.

Reagan and Carter were so flipping cute, funny, swoon worthy just everything I loved.

Highly recommend this book, Lila knows how to capture your attention and make you fall in love with all her cast of characters, I loved that Ree was full figured and shy, but man she is freaking funny. And for a footy player you would think he is a bit of a player, or full of himself but he isn’t like that all. He is sweet, and he wants Ree, and he has some interesting mates too as well as Reagan, her bff and her are everything you want in a friendship.

Anyways, this was such a sweet story, slow burn romance, it’s worth it.
5/5 stars!

Fumbled Love, Release Review

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Fumbled Love
Author: Lila Rose
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: December 4, 2018
 

BLURB

The one day English teacher Reagan Wild is late for work—and looks like she dressed herself in the dark—she remembers Carter Anthony, a well-known football star, is coming to the school to deliver a talk to her overexcited students.

While Reagan knows Carter from her high school days, since he was her past crush, she wasn’t ready to see him again. At the time, she hated being invisible. But right now, she wished she could simply disappear.

Carter Anthony is keen to give back to his hometown, but what he doesn’t expect is getting something in return. When a chance encounter with Reagan, the shy girl from his past, happens, he knows instinctively this woman is supposed to be in his life.

With an embarrassing ability to blurt out whatever’s on her mind, Reagan doesn’t understand Carter’s attention. She has no doubt, though, he’ll soon realize his mistake when he discovers just how crazy she and her family are. But no matter what he sees, what he hears, or how her looney family behaves, he doesn’t run. In fact, Carter’s family seem just as unique as hers.

Through dog poop, naked yoga, and the paparazzi’s, can Carter and Reagan have any hope in love, even when it’s fumbled?

Review: Outrun the Wind

Outrun the Wind Outrun the Wind by Elizabeth Tammi
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

So I didn't know this was an lgbt story, what a surprise that was. a good one. about two girls named Atlanta and Kahina. This for me was a solids story! I love Greek mythology so I was happy to read some loosely about that. but it wasn't enough, like it could have had more and I would have loved it even more. I just liked it. that's all. this story is an adventure to go on with these characters. one of the main reason why I requested to read this was because it has Greek mythology inspired. it just didn't live up to the hype I had created in my mind. it started of really promises and then something happens where I was like meh here we go again, another princess. but at the end of the year be sure to go and check this one out, its not terrible. the cover is kick ass I enjoyed that and the witting read fast and not once was I annoyed with how it read, just the plot annoyed me. but again, YA is a tricky genre for me to get into. Overall 2.5 stars.
