Review: Deception

Deception Deception by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Addictive series

This gets more and more exiting and I have trouble putting the book away. It's a plot that have you guessing all time; what's happening next......

The characters are well known to me now and I know I'm going to be sad to leave Alex and Nox.

No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and lots of dialogues, how can I not enjoy this.

And all the feelings...... the trust building between Alex and Nox is so emotional 😭

Another cliffhanger!!! So I recommend buying the whole series because you're going to want to after the first book.

DRUNK DIAL


(A standalone)
Release date: 8/21/2017

A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author 
Penelope Ward 


Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. 

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. 

I didn’t think he’d call me back. 

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. 

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.  

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one 
phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

EXCERPT

After that evening, I hadn’t heard back from him for a few days.
Then, one night, a text came in from the same phone number I recognized as Landon’s. It was the first time he’d texted me.
I looked down to find he’d sent a photo.
I gasped.
It was a heavily tatted man set against the backdrop of the ocean at sunset. Oh, my. It was him—a selfie.
Fuck. Me. He was beautiful.
I wouldn’t have even known it was Landon were it not for the blue eyes I recognized instantly. The shaggy, caramel hair I remembered from the past was now a darker shade of brown and shorter, cropped closer to his head. His arms and his chest were inked, his body so perfect that if I squinted, it almost resembled carved stone.
I couldn’t stop looking at him. My eyes wanted nothing more than to explore the ridges and valleys of his stunning body.
Was this a cruel joke?
This was not Landon!
But, it was.
With my thumb and middle finger, I kept zooming in and out, examining the details of the ink across his chest and on his arms. There was really nothing sexier than a guy with perfect arms and a full sleeve tattoo.
Even though his lips seemed fuller than I recalled, they still curved into a familiar grin that oozed confidence. The eyes and that smile were the only traces of the boy I remembered. I wished I could’ve leapt through the screen to smell him, touch him.
“Hi, Landon,” I whispered, for a brief moment talking to the boy inside, not the man in front of me.
This Landon was the polar opposite of the Ivy League yuppie image previously in my head. The only thing the man pictured might have majored in was badassery. He looked like a rockstar, a rule breaker, displaying a sense of arousing danger—someone who must have had women from all walks of life drooling over him for the sheer fact that either they couldn’t have him or shouldn’t have him. It suddenly became clear why, as he’d alluded to, a woman might have been begging him for sex. That made me wonder if he had any secret tattoos in spots I wasn’t allowed to see.
God.
A fire was burning inside of me, and I knew it was my crush exploding into a full-blown obsession.
A self-conscious feeling came over me. If I was scared to show him a picture of myself before, now I was really hesitant.
The message that went along with the photo simply read:
Now show me you.




Review: Cunning

Cunning Cunning by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh wonderful suspense

Second book in this series is even more intriguing then the first, the author has a way of popping surprises and twists to the story that I've not often experienced before.

The plot of this story is revealed little by little but still makes you left feeling like there so much more. I love it 😍

The characters are well written and the book is filled with enough dialogues to be a very intense read.

I've invested in whisper sync and the narrators is just adding to the suspense.

This is the second book in a series and they must be read in order to give meaning to the plot.

CLIFFHANGER!

Review: Betrayal

Betrayal Betrayal by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, oh, oh....

This is the first book in a series and it's a cliffhanger BUT it's totally worth it because this is a insanely good book and I want to read the next NOW!!!

The storyline is great and I suspect the twists in this series will have me hanging on to every word.

The feelings between the characters are well described with lots of emotions.

I bought whisper sync with this book and the narrators is good so I enjoyed both listening and reading. Before I was quite finished I bought the other four books so I'm jumping right in to the next.

5 shiny stars ✨

Review: Close Quarter

Close Quarter Close Quarter by Anna Zabo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I was so lucky to win this ARC from the author and I'm freely giving my review of it*

I've never read a book in this genre because I've been a little sceptical to the Fairytale feel would be wrong in a adult book but oh was I wrong. I loved faeries and adventures when I was a kid and what do you know.....I still love it even though it is adult content.

I love this story and I would like to read more from this author in this genre. I've read some other books in other genres by Anna Zabo and I love them so much. I find the writing style easy and enjoyable, there are no unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and lots of dialogues so that's just how I like it.

The storyline is good and the suspense is great, I'm at the edge of the chair most of the story.

The love in this book is also great and there's a lot of feeling so the love scenes are hot and emotional.

Wonderful 5 star read.

Review: Savior

Savior Savior by S.L. Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I was gifted this ARC and are freely giving my review of it*

In my opinion the concluding book in this series was good but not as good as the first book.
I felt like the storyline has stagnated in the beginning of this book, it was more about their proclamations of love for each other over and over than moving forward with the story. But at 50 % it was more happening so when I view it as one it's good.

The characters are well described but I felt like their repeated declarations of love was to much.

No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and enough dialogues to keep my interest is a good way to keep me reading.

The storyline was good although it stagnated for a while and the author has put a lot of emotions in there so you feel the love between them even when they have their struggles.

This is a great duet of books so when I say I liked the first one best it doesn't mean that I didn't like the last. I recommend you read it yourself because IT IS great!

EXCERPT


I sit outside on a bench, looking at the scuffs on the tips of my black leather shoes. The bottoms are worn from wearing them while riding my bike. It was the only sign that set me apart from the other rich kids where I grew up. Other than Cruise, no one rode motorcycles or had dealt with anything worse than getting a warning after getting busted for smoking, skipping school, sneaking out, smoking weed, getting drunk, or driving over the speed limit. The list could go on.

     I have a car. I just don’t drive it much, preferring the freedom I feel on my bike. It wasn’t just my clothes or the bike that set me apart. None of them had lived, breathed, existed simply because their soul mate did. Not even now. 

 From the moment I saw her, I knew Sara Jane was it for me, an angel in a Catholic school uniform, eating a candy bar. She couldn’t have been more innocent. Except she was. The girl had barely been kissed. It’s like she had been 

waiting to meet me, as if she had saved herself for me. How a girl who looked 

that good and smelled even sweeter remained untouched for so long was beyond me.

     I would have loved her no matter what. She could have been a prostitute, and I would have only seen her halo. I was a ship navigating a stormy sea, but she called me to her lighthouse, a beacon shining in the dark. It was never about her innocence, or the sins I had inherited. The day I met Sara Jane was about two lives that weren’t meant for only one lifetime, but destined to be together forever.

     Maybe that’s what had given me the confidence to break away from the kids I grew up with. I knew I was meant for something bigger than a life of partying and getting high socially.

     I was meant for Sara Jane, and she for me.
