🎄Exmas by Winter Renshaw

42509858This Christmas, I’ll be getting a visit from a man in a suit, only it won’t be Santa.

Let me first say: Reed York was never my boyfriend. He was the pen. I was the company ink. Though if you want to get technical, we were more like colleagues-who-hated-each-other … with benefits.

Everything was fine until the charming jerk went behind my back, stole my promotion, and became my boss—literally overnight.

Refusing to work beneath him (professionally speaking and otherwise), I transferred 2,014 miles away to our Chicago division, and I’ve spent the past year trying to remember how much I hated his panty-melting smirk so I can forget how much I secretly loved the way his ocean eyes lit every time I walked into the room.

But he’s just announced a last-minute site visit the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, and on top of that, he’s audaciously designated me as his ‘right hand gal’ during his visit. If he thinks he has a snowball’s chance in this hell at getting back in my good graces, he’s got another thing coming.

Reed York might be a man used to getting everything he’s ever wanted, but Joa Jolivet is a woman that never forgets.

He can put me on his Christmas list all he wants, but everyone knows naughty boys only get coal

Rereadable?
No.

If it’s a series, would you continue reading it?
No.

Conclusion:

I was looking for a sweet holiday read to kick off the holiday season. I didn’t technically get that with this book, but I did get a pretty awesome story.

I really liked the way the story was told past and present. It really helped to make sense of the relationship between Joa and Reed.

I usually prefer my romances as meet cutes or friends/enemies to lovers, but this was definitely interesting in its own way.

Winter Renshaws books are hit or miss for me, but this one was closer to a hit.

If you’re looking for something romance-y but not overly dirty, check this out.

Until next time,

🎄Do You Feel It Too? by Nicola Rendell Blog Tour

thumbnail_Blog Tour Post Banner - Do You Feel It Too

40175497A hot summer night is perfect for feeling your way in the dark… For urban-legend hunter and television host Gabe Powers, it’s business—investigate the most notorious haunted places in Savannah. Then he meets his new sound engineer, a dewy Georgia peach who may just turn this gig into (im)pure pleasure. All it takes is one night for them to conjure floor-rattling, wall-banging moans…but they’re not from the ghosts. Blame the rippling abs, the cocky swagger, the granite jawline, the whole muscle-bulging package, but Gabe is bringing out good-girl Lily Jameson’s dirty side. Damn her code-of-conduct contract—this isn’t just a molten-hot fling. There’s just one kink in the relationship they’ve been avoiding: soon they’ll be going their separate ways. Lily’s home is in Savannah, and Gabe is a globe-trotter at heart. For them to be together, they’ll both have to upend their so-very-different worlds and face their fears in the process. And suddenly things don’t feel so Georgia peachy keen at all.

Where has this book been all my life? Do You Feel It Too? was so funny, so sweet, so sexy, so amazing I wish I would of read it forever ago. You know, if it wasn’t just releasing in a few days.

Lily and Gabe were absolutely amazing characters. Their romance was so cute and sweet and steamy and I’m pretty sure they’re OTP forever and ever. I loved them so much.

But the supporting characters! Particularly of the feathered variety made me laugh my foolish head off. The General is by far the best pet I have ever seen in a novel ever.

And Ivan! So much sweet. The way Gabe took care of the baby had my ovaries exploding. And I don’t even want kids. There’s something stupid sexy about a man caring for a child. Just saying.

🎄Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, Tobias Iaconis

39939417Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

Yes. Absolutely Yes.

If it’s a series, would you continue reading it?
See above answer.

Who would you recommend this for?
Everyone.

Conclusion:

I jumped off the YA Contemporary Angst train after TFIOS. Seriously, I have never been more emotionally destroyed by a book and movie in my life. But when I saw the trailer for this movie with Cole Sprouse, and I realized that it was a book, I had to read it.

And I am so unbelievably happy I did. My lord did I ever love Will and Stella. Stella was absolutely amazing. Even though she was sick, she was so strong. So unselfish. I loved her so much.

I loved that this was a story about a sick girl, but not completely about her illness. Sure, it came up. The whole damn novel is set in a hospital but it wasn’t a ranting sad story about how sick she was.

Will was definitely the comic relief and the attitude throughout the novel. I loved him and Stella together, even if they couldn’t be together. There was still an intimacy in the book that was oh so sweet.

I highly highly recommend picking up this book. I have already raved about it to tons of people. So jump on this bandwagon for sure.

And did I mention Cole Sprouse is in the movie? Yeah. That.

Until next time,

Meet Ariel: a quiet, unnoticeable girl with a hidden strength…

Life is tough for Ariel: a traumatic childhood and the constant reccurring nightmare that plagues her every night for as long as she remembers, questioning her sanity, and a secret, which she doesn’t want anyone to know and is so desperate to forget herself.
But when three new student appear in her sleepy town’s school, Ariel’s dull and measured life is thrown into turmoil, as she is drawn into an ancient celestial conflict that is bigger than her and which she will need to survive to remain herself.

That’s it for me! Enjoy the rest of the tour !

Beyond the Highland Mist by Karen Marie Moning

8161865He would sell his warrior soul to possess her…

An alluring laird…

He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart—until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland. Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the sixteenth-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm’s length—but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.

A prisoner in time…

She had a perfect “no” on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne’s reservations were no match for Hawk’s determination to keep her by his side…


Review
Q&A

Physical or Ebook?

Have you ever read a book by this author before?
Nope

Genre?
Historical Romance

Star Rating?
4 Stars

Rereadable?
No

If it’s a series, would you continue reading it?
I’m considering it.

Who would you recommend this for?
I think anyone who typically enjoys historical fiction. Anyone who devoured Outlander without feeling like you didn’t understand what was being written.

Conclusion:

I really enjoyed reading this. And I’m going to stick with my original rating of 4 stars. BUT after reflecting on it for a couple weeks, I realize that I have more issues with this than I originally did.

So my main two issues tie together. The main character did not sound like she was from the 20th century. All of a sudden she went from speaking like someone did in the 90’s to speaking in essentially old English. There was no easing into it, it just happened. I feel like there should of been more discussion about how she sounded differently than anyone Hawk or his family knew.

But this ties into the writing style because oh my god, it was irritating. I read a part of Darkfever by this same author and her writing was okay, but in this it was barely legible. I understand when you’re writing a historical fiction novel, you have to use the language of that time, but this was just irritating. And boring. So boring. It ended up just becoming a flowery mess that was kind of ridiculous.

However, I rate it as high as I did because I really did enjoy the story and the characters. Sure Hawk is a little Tarzan-ish, but I think it fit well in the series.

I was basically looking for something to give me an Outlander fix without me actually reading Outlander because those books are intimidating af.

Until next time,

Bree

Greek Gods Book Tag

I found this post on My World of Books. I wasn’t tagged, but check out her mythology book tags because they all look amazing ❤

The Rules

  • Pingback to Zuky here so she can read all your posts!
  • You can use her graphics if you like, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
  • Tag as many people as you want, but please share the love.

aphrodite

There’s a few that I’m consistently recommending. Any and all books by Jennifer Armentrout, of course. The Tiger’s Saga by Colleen Houck (although, please avoid her Egyptian series because it’s not that great.) ACOTAR ❤ A good contemporary romance that isn’t JLA is the Easy/Breakable duology by Tammara Webber.

apollo

My actual favorite cover wasn’t actually used on a book. So my second favorite would be the Splintered series. Oh man… whoever designs her covers is a freaking genius.

athena

I do not read a lot of non-fiction books. If ever. I’ve read a couple autobiographies of Teen Mom cast members. But meh.hera

Oh. Katy from the Lux series. Feyre from ACOTAR. Aria from Under the Never Sky ❤hermes

I’m a really fast reader. So I have a lot of books that I read in one sitting or in one day. A series that I read in freaking no time though would be Under the Never Sky, the Crank series, anything by Rick Riordan, anything by JLA. These are books that I will sit and devour without looking up.hypnos

Fallen. That book wasn’t almost making me fall asleep, that book was perpetual naptime. I’m serious. I had to watch the movie in order to get the story so I could continue the series. On the bright side, it does get a lot better.janus1

Pulse by Danielle Koste. That was the most bad ass debut I have ever read!poseidon

THUG. Literally the only one I can think of. But that is not a book that I will reread again. It kind of hurt my soul.zeus

You want me to pick one? I can’t. Basically any book I recommend is my favorite. I have many many more… like ACOMAF is one of my favorites of all time.


If you haven’t done this tag, I tag you. I don’t know how long this has been around, and most likely anyone I tagged would have already done it.

Until next time,

Interview With Jennifer L. Armentrout

Okay, so I’m kind of freaking out here.

Remember this question from one of the Book Tags I was tagged in?

20180914_140533.jpg

Well.. it’s freaking happening!

I emailed Jennifer a while back and she was kind enough to agree to do an interview on the blog. I may have cried a little.

It’s no secret that I am a huge JLA fan and this blog is barely a post away from just being a fan site. So I am so grateful that she agreed to do this. So before I babble on anymore, here’s the Questions and Answers:


1. You have released over 50 novels/novellas in the last 7 years, how do you keep yourself so motivated and how do you celebrate your releases and accomplishments? On the opposite side, what do you do to relax and unwind?

It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long! I bore very easily, so not being bored motivates me to write. Not very motivational, right? LOL. I don’t really celebrate the releases. Release day is an anxious day, and I’m usually working on a book when another releases. I like to garden to relax.

 

2. Your books tend to jump genres and age groups, how do you refresh your mind set when going from writing a YA Paranormal to an Adult Contemporary? Or New Adult contemporary to a New Adult Paranormal?

Jumping genres is what keeps writing fresh for me, so that I don’t get burned out on paranormal or contemporary.

3. I’ve always been completely enamored with reading books from the love interests perspective, like Trust In Me and Oblivion. What was it like writing the book from the other characters point of view? Did you find it difficult to write from a male’s perspective since most of your novels are written from a female’s perspective?

I fine it easier to write from the male POV, to be honest, and it’s always exciting to show the other characters thoughts and motivations.

4. In the Lux series, you refer to Obsidian as being the Arum’s Kryptonite. What’s your writing Kryptonite?

People.

5. If you had to choose any of your books to be released as a TV Show or Movie, which one would you choose? And who would be your dream cast?

I think I would say Obsidian and I would love to see Noah Centineo cast in it.

6. Since October is release month for The Darkest Star, can you tell me what it was like returning to the Lux world? Was it like coming home, or did you run into any challenges?

It’s been a lot of fun getting back into that world. The biggest challenge is writing a book both new readers and old ones can follow along with being overwhelmed or bored.

7. Anything you can tell us about the The Darkest Star or the next book in the Origin series?

There’s a huge twist in The Darkest Star, and a series of even bigger twists in the sequel. Believe nothing. Expect anything.

8. What are you working on now?

I just finished the sequel and I’m about to do edits on Storm and Fury, Zayne’s story from The Dark Elements.

9. For funsies and in the spirit of Halloween, if you had to choose any character(s) from your novels to spend the night in a haunted house with, who would you choose and why? How do you think they would react when spooky things started happening?

I would pick Trinity from Storm and Fury. She can see ghosts, so she’d chat with them. I think it would be fun.

10. You have a lot of book recommendations on your website. What recent releases or series are you absolutely loving right now?

I’m absolutely obsessed with Kerrigan Byrne historical series, starting with The Highwayman 


There you have it! Thank you so much to Jennifer for agreeing to do this Q&A ❤
