ARC Review | The Lion Heart by Carrie Aarons

Trigger Warnings: Sexual Assault, Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, Verbal Abuse. The Lion Heart is book 2 in the Rouge Academy. This can be read as a standalone, you do not need to read The Second Coming to understand The Lion Heart. However, it does contain some spoilers from The Second Coming, so I’d recommend you read it. The Story The Lion Heart takes place after The Second Coming. The story is told in both Poppy’s and Kingston’s point of view. We follow Kingston who despite all the talent in the world can’t seem to make it to the first squad on the football team. Poppy on the other hand is working to make herself an even bigger model but keeps to herself causing others to not want to get along to with her. Both Kingston and Poppy seem to be searching for something more and also want to find peace […]

ARC Review | Falter by Carrie Aarons

Falter is the final book in The Nash Brothers series and the one book I was so excited to read. All these books can be read as standalone, but I’d recommend you read Fleeting, Forgiven and Flutter so you can get a bit of a backstory. The Story Falter takes place a couple years after the previous books. We have seen how Fletcher has grown throughout the books but in Falter he is centered stage. Here, we meet a sober Fletcher, he is struggling and working each and every day to maintain his sobriety. He works really hard to get it together. Ryan is back in town for the first time in a while. She’s taking a break from her job, from her life and just trying to find herself. In trying to find herself, she also has to conquer her demons head on. The Characters Ryan is Presley’s best […]

Blog Tour + Giveaway | Trashed by Mia Hopkins

Trashed is the second book in the Eastside Brewery series. You could possibly read Trashed before Thirsty however, I’d recommend Thirsty first because Sal and because you see a bit of Trashed featured. The Story Eddie Rosas is a character we met in Thirsty. He is Sal’s younger brother and just like Sal is a fellow gang member and was just released from jail. He is attempting to stay out of trouble, but it seems like trouble just follows him everywhere. During this time, he met a girl and they had a one night (well it was daytime) stand. He never knew her name, but he was dying to see her again. And as fate would have it, they meet again. Eddie struggles with adjusting to life outside of prison and outside of the gang. For a long time, they were both a huge part of who he was. There […]

ARC Review | Flutter by Carrie Aarons

Flutter is the third novel in the Nash Brothers series. You don’t necessarily need to read Fleeting or Forgiven to read Flutter. However, you should because you meet both Penelope or Forrest and learn a little about them in the other novels. Flutter is a mix of enemies to lovers meets friends with benefits. There is also an age gap, Penelope is six years older than Forrest. Flutter is told in Penelope and Forrest’s point of view. I have been wanting Penelope to get her happy ending since the first time I met her in Fleeting. Flutter is a quick and easy read that can easily cure a reading slump. This is something I especially love about Carrie Aarons writing. You get lost in her words and her storytelling that you don’t even realize the story is over, until it is over. Penelope is probably one of my favorite heroines […]

ARC Review | The Second Coming by Carrie Aarons

The Second Coming is the first book in Carrie Aarons’ new series Rogue Academy. The Second Coming has a little bit of angst, steam and drama. It keeps you on your toes and you end up reading the entire thing one sitting. The Second Coming is a sort of spin off of Carrie’s previous novel Red Card, you actually don’t need to read Red Card to understand the Second Coming. However, it does have a bit of spoilers so if you want to read Red Card, I would but you don’t have to. What I liked: The Heroine – Aria! Aria is probably one of my top favorites of Carrie’s heroines. She is strong. She works multiple shifts at work to help her dad, she keeps her head down and works really hard. I loved how caring, sweet and honest she was. She wasn’t afraid to put herself first and […]

ARC Review | Forgiven by Carrie Aarons

Forgiven is the second book in The Nash Brothers Series. You do not need to read Fleeting to read Forgiven but personally, I would recommend reading Fleeting. You get a bit of the backstory in Fleeting that helps set up Forgiven. This is a second chance romance between high school sweethearts. The Story We met Lily and Bowen in Fleeting. We were also privy to the fact that both of these had a history. Lily and Bowen were high school sweethearts who were madly in love; they had their future planned out. It wasn’t until one night ten years ago that Lily and Bowen were in a terrible car accident that scared both of them with scars that are both visible and some that aren’t. Lily has no clue how one night could destroy everything they had together, she was mainly looking for closure. She’s confused about the break up […]

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 […]

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 […]

Blog Tour + Giveaway | Remember That Night by Katrina Marie

Remember That Night is the fourth book in the Taking Chances series. Each one could be read as a standalone but if you want to read this one, I suggest reading Cruel and Beautiful Life to full understand this book. Plus there is some spoilers from the other books so proceed with caution. Darcy and Derrick are the main characters for Remember That Night and the story is told in their point of views. That’s something I personally like because I love getting inside the character’s head and learning their prospective. About The Characters Derrick is probably my second favorite in the series. Jake (Ways To Go) is still my favorite sorry not sorry Derrick. He’s very sweet, attentive and romantic. He seems very different compared to the other guys in the series but Jake just owns my heart. I really enjoyed the fact that he played basketball and he […]

Blog Tour + Giveaway | Ways To Go by Katrina Marie

Ways To Go is the third book in the Taking Chances series; you don’t have to read the previous books (Welcome To Your Life and Cruel and Beautiful World) to read Ways To Go. Ways To Go follows Jake, a character that we met and disliked in Welcome To Your Life. I’m not afraid to admit that I was terrified of reading Ways To Go because I didn’t like Jake very much in Welcome To Your Life and I didn’t think he could truly turn himself around. But let me tell you, Katrina you really outdone yourself. This was by far my favorite character and my favorite book in the series. The Story Ways To Go takes place a couple months after Welcome To Your Life ends so to fully understand the story, I would personally read the first book. I didn’t feel like it was such a long gap […]
