Review: Save the Date

Save the Date Save the Date by Morgan Matson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Save The Date, by Morgan Matson.
This is the first book I have read by this author, and I liked it.

This was cute, I really loved the family aspect. Honestly I went into this book blind, I didn't really know much about it.
It was Fun, light hearted, it has a big loud family. Though I also found that this book was a little long, 400 pages and the plot was dragged out, when it didn't really need to be. I at times struggled connecting with the main character, it was weird one min I enjoyed her and the next I was like, gah your annoying me... The romance, I wasn't a fan, It also felt it came second to the actual plot, like a sub plot.

Overall, it was solid 3 stars, its perfect for a lazy day, perfect for summer. Would totally recommend it for something a little light hearted fun. but go in with caution, you may not enjoy it.

Review: Dirty-Talking Cowboy

Dirty-Talking Cowboy Dirty-Talking Cowboy by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

(I received an invitation to review this book from the publisher through NetGalley.)

Dirty-Talking Cowboy was my first Stacey Kennedy read.

Emma and Shep's story is packed with lovable characters, drama, humour and lots smoking' hot sex. Dirty-Talking Cowboy is book 1 of the Kinky Spurs Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger

Review: The Start of Something Good

The Start of Something Good The Start of Something Good by Jennifer Probst
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Start of Something Good, is a new book and a new series by the one and only Jennifer Probst!
I wasn't sure when I started this one, I haven't read this authors work in a long time. but I was surprised that I really enjoyed it. An enemies to lovers story. A wounded solider *sigh* and uptight PR shark...

I found this was a decent read, I didn't love or hate it, I think my tastes over the years have changed,every Probst fan is going to love this one!

Review: Must Love Babies

Must Love Babies Must Love Babies by Lynnette Austin
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

No! Cute covers, especially with babies and a good looking dude on the cover dose not mean you are going to love or like.

The writing wasn't bad, I hated the heroine and I couldn't connect with her at all, she was wishy washy, couldn't make up her mind, flirts and runs back and forth with her decision making. I felt like I was missing something as soon as I started the book, like it felt like there was huge backstory missing. The romance, meh. This was legit one of the most cleanest romances I have ever read, I just with the romance at all. I dunno if it was my mood or not, but I was looking forward to something different.

Review: The One You Can't Forget

The One You Can't Forget The One You Can't Forget by Roni Loren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars
This is my second book I have read by Roni Loren, first was the book before this one. Which I adored, I really loved. I wish, I really do wish I could say the same about this one. In this book we are with Rebecca, she is a fantastic divorce lawyer and works long hours, and for her fathers company. She is a Long Acre High shooting survivor. She is dealing with really bad PTSD and still has flashbacks.

Wes Garrett, is one Fiiiine male, I really liked him. I liked him a lot. He is a chef, who is divorced and has lost everything, a recovering alcoholic and he is now sober and has taken a teaching job for a group of kids who need help.

I liked Wes more then I liked Rebecca, I was glad to see it play out and how they over come there losses and moving forward. it is a fairly easy story, with hardly any drama. No cliffy, and I am eagerly waiting for the next book.

but overall something was missing for me to give it a bigger star rating, I think for it was dragged on a fair bit. like it was a decent size book. 3.85 stars

Review: Follow Your Arrow

Follow Your Arrow Follow Your Arrow by A.M. Willard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Follow Your Arrow by A.M. Willard
This is a sweet second chance romance, set in a small-town community and has a smidgen of mystery thrown in. Filled with angst, the chick’s feelings are bitter, and hides from her feelings and Justin’s excuses are so lame.

Leslie and Justin still have a connection, he broke her heart and now he is back. They were childhood sweethearts, and he left to follow his dreams and left her behind. I neither loved it or hated it I think if you are looking for something a little sweet with annoying angst that makes you want to strangle both characters, by all means then this is a great one for that mood.

I found both characters to be a little bland and not for me, I couldn’t connect with either one of them. I find when this happens, you know you are going to struggle. The authors writing was solid, but again I think my taste in stories have change quite a lot. I enjoyed the mystery part of it, that what made me get to the end.

Overall, I was given this as an arc, I’m not sure if I would buy this for a friend or for myself. My rating is based on what I felt at the time.
3 stars

Review: All I Want

All I Want All I Want by Megan Lowe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All I Want by Megan Lowe
Holy smokes, I was not expecting that. No seriously I haven’t got any fancy words to explain what I went through reading this story. I felt like at one stage maybe two that I was being sucker punched. At one stage I put the book down and walked away.

This is not your typical Megan story. It isn’t filed with rainbows and unicorns, it’s not like the other stories in the series. You can bet your bottom dollar that you will be in shock with Bishop and Jake! These two men are such beautiful souls, I really enjoyed reading about them. When I read the last story, I was like I bet this Bishop character is hiding something… and I called it when I was speaking to the author.

I knew deep down Bish was kind. I really like Jake and I understand why, he did what he did… but it hurt! I loved the writing, I love this series and I love all the BMX/Extreme Games world that Megan has created. I just love the whole family aspect of this series. Its one of the many reason why I enjoy them. Warning though, there is use of drugs, homophobic douches, heavy drinking and stupid decisions that will make you so mad! This story was a treat though, it’s a different side to the authors writing and she has done very well with showing us that she can write differently and can stamp her mark at writing a LGBT novel that impacts a punch.

The journey these two men take is beautiful, finding themselves, forgiving oneself and learning to love yourself. Healing is important in this story and we definitely watch Bishop do that. All I want reads fast and doesn’t hinder anywhere, I think you could read it as a standalone because you are given a great amount of background information that you would get lost in this world. I am excited for the next story/ies to come.
Overall rating 4 stars.

Review: Liberty

Liberty Liberty by Kirsty Dallas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Liberty by Kirsty Dallas
“Face your enemy, show no fear, fight to survive.”

This would have to be hands down 100% more intense and angsty then my favourite When Nothing Is All You’ve Got. Liberty is set in the future, about 7-8 years after the aftermath of the underworld prison escape, what happened in the book before this one. We meet Grace then and now she is an adult, and we meet a bunch of new characters who survived and living some what happy in the compound in the middle of nowhere.

Liberty is filled with romance, betrayal, drug use, rape. It is action packed and reads fast. You can read this one as a standalone, you will be forced to pace, sweat bullets, cry, become angry and fall in love with Ink and Grace. There story is epic, very compelling. I was very involved in what was happening and right from the beginning I was having heart palpitations. I love the way Kirsty writes in this crazy, scary dystopian world, in Liberty the compound has been overtaken by some mercenaries, who their leader is Jedediah and his sister., Who I fucken HATE! I can’t stand the pair of them, if there is a villain to hate, it is these two!

We go on this trip, watching and feeling the emotions of both our characters Grace and Ink, they have loved each other forever, but with a wee bit of an age gape, Ink pushed her away. I loved the bond and friendship/relationship they begin to have. That alone gets pushed to a test, so hang on to your knickers ladies and gents you are in for one hell of a ride!
Overall, I rate this one a 4.5 star.
