ARC Review | Fleeting by Carrie Aarons

It all started with a dog who ate a pair of lace pink underwear. Fleeting is the first book in The Nash Brothers series. Fleeting is about the oldest Nash brother, Keaton. This is a small town romance where the hometown vet meets the city girl. I have read many of Carrie Aaron’s books and I have watched her grow as an author and I would say The Nash Brothers is probably be one of my favorite books by Carrie. I really enjoyed Fleeting. It is the perfect book to read in a day ESPECIALLY if you are in a reading slump. The story grabs you from beginning to end. The Story The story takes place in Fawn Hill. It is a very small town where everyone knows everything and everyone. There is no such thing as a secret because everyone is up in your business. I really loved the […]

Review | Sugar Rush by Bella Emy

Sugar Rush is the second book in the Single On Valentine’s Day series. You do not need to read the first book Seven Minutes in Heaven to read Sugar Rush. Office Romances aren’t really my favorite trope. I haven’t found one that makes me really love this trope so you have recs please send them my way. This also includes friends to lovers trope, which is one of my favorite tropes EVER. And this one was pretty well done. Just like Seven Minutes In Heaven, Sugar Rush takes place around Valentine’s Day. Now I’m not sure if they all are taking place in the same time period or if they are in different years but other than being involved in the same series and the central idea of Single Status (the dating service for singles on Valentine’s day) I feel like you can read the entire series in any order. […]

Review | Seven Minutes in Heaven by K.G. Reuss

As you’ve heard me rant for the past couple months, I have been in a reading slump. I was searching through Kindle Unlimited and was just praying that one book would stand out to me and help me break this rut I am in. Seven Minutes In Heaven kept me up all night reading. First thing the title automatically caught my attention. It was catchy and it made me want to find out how this was going to work in a New Adult setting. Then I read the synopsis and I was intrigued and automatically borrowed it. Seven Minutes In Heaven is the beginning of the Single On Valentine’s Day series that is written by thirteen authors. Each book can be read as a standalone but is certain around the same concept. The Story Single Status is a dating service for those who are single on Valentine’s Day. It is […]

Mini Reviews: McLoughlin Brothers Trilogy by Emma Tharp

Moving On is the first series in the McLoughlin Brothers Trilogy. It was a very quick friends to lovers / enemies to lovers book. The story begins in Ireland. Braeden is on vacation when he runs into Scarlette who is also in Ireland on her own. Her grandmother wasn’t able to make the trip with her but she wanted to continue the trip with her. Scarlette is going through a rough time, she just broke up with her boyfriend she is also in another country by herself and her luggage is lost! Isn’t that rotten luck? Moving On is told in Scarlette’s point of view only. She was a good narrator I did enjoy the writing and the story. Braeden is one of Scarlette’s friend’s exes. This was actually handled VERY WELL and made me like the story a lot more. Moving On was definitely a quick lighthearted read that […]

ARC Review | Barely Missing Everything by Matt Mendez

Trigger Warnings: Drug Use, Domestic Violence, Gang Violence, Assualt, Murder, Alcohol use, Gun Violence, Racism, Violence, Police Brutality. I’ve been highly anticipating Barely Missing Everything since the moment it came across my radar back in 2017. When I saw it was finally releasing in 2019, I immediately began searching Edelweiss and Netgalley for an ARC. And finally Netgalley had the ARC but it took forever to get approved and honestly, I gave up waiting for my request to be approved. Then the day came and my request was approved and I was so excited. Barely Missing Everything is Matt Mendez’s debut novel. Barely Missing Everything is about pain, grief, and the thought of missing something, maybe it was something you had, and maybe it was something you wish you had. It was filled with anger, resentment, rejection, and disappointment. Now, you’re probably thinking well that doesn’t sound very well good? […]

#ReadYourWorld (MCBD2019) | All the Stars Denied By by Guadalupe Garcia McCall

Content/Trigger Warnings for: Racism and racial slurs, Kidnapping and abduction, Abuse, Violence. I hardly ever read historical fiction. There’s no real reason why just that it is not a genre that I personally find myself picking up. When it came time to pick a book for Multicultural Children’s Book Day, I wanted to read All The Stars Denied. Why? Well for starters, it is really hard to find books with Mexican Americans main characters in them. I also felt like I needed to read this because it felt like I could connect to the story in many ways. And third of all, I have been dying to read a Garcia-McCall book for a long time. My Review All The Stars Denied was everything I was expecting and more. It is a companion novel to Garcia McCall’s novel Shame The Stars. Personally, I didn’t read Shame The Stars and I feel […]

ARC Review | The Tenth Girl by Carrie Aarons

My first impressions of The Tenth Girl were that this cover is gorgeous. Carrie Aarons is the queen of gorgeous covers. I’ve read quite a few of Carrie Aarons novels and know that I can expect something light and quick. I’m just a little worried because Carrie writes more New Adult and this is Young Adult. But I’m excited to see what she does in The Tenth Girl. The Story The premise of The Tenth Girl reminded me slightly of my favorite movie ever She’s All That except this one is a bit messier. The bet in She’s All That is taking the most unpopular girl in school and making her the prom queen. The bet in The Tenth Girl is a group of football players making a bet to sleep with 10 girls before senior year and they win this key to a popular hang out in town. The […]
