Chain Reaction by Tara Wyatt

So this is book 3 in the series, and I haven’t read the first two, or any other book written by Tara before, but I have to say I enjoyed this book. I have really been in the mood for some suspense in my romance lately, and this book definitely brings the suspense. It also brings with it a pretty hefty dose of family drama and angst. I figured out pretty quickly that this series seems to revolve around a group of friends, and the guys all seem to work for one guys security company, so basically the dudes are hot, muscley, bodyguards (woot woot, sign me up). So Alexa and Zach obviously know each other before this book beginnings. And when we meet Alexa, man, let’s just say I am more than happy that I don’t have to sit through family dinners like that. It would be bad enough dealing with controlling parents who put her down, but it turns out they are really, really bad parents and people. Alexa overhears something at dinner and when Zach sees her he knows something is up. So I really liked that Alexa didn’t try to handle things on her own. She tells her friends and the people she loves right away. And when she realizes that she has knowledge that could help keep people safe, she steps up, and I like that. She definitely gave me kind of a nervous vibe throughout the book, even when the scenes weren’t necessarily about […]

The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken

I really do love Rachel Van Dyken’s writing, plus she’s kind of hilarious on social media, so I’ve been waiting to get my paws on this book. I love the whole idea behind a bachelor auction, plus the guy who orchestrates the whole thing, the grandfather, well he just seemed like such a character, I knew I was going to enjoy reading this book. This book is very much a retelling of a fairytale. I mean our Just Jane is the owner of Cinderella cleaning, and she breaks a shoe pretty early in the book (oh and did I mention that her prince Brock sleeps with the shoe). And no Cinderella is complete without the evil stepsisters, except in Jane’s case, they are her actual sisters. I actually really likes Jane, except for one thing, how she handles her sisters. She lets those horrible women just walk all over her, taking over her entire life, she runs their errands, cooks their food, and basically pays all the bills and bails them out whenever they need it. It sucks. I wanted so much for her to tell them to just get lost. I mean really. They really are the most horrid vapid people. But other than that, Jane was easy to like. She really sees people, and more than that she wants to help them, make them happy. It was hard not to like her. Brock is, well, let’s go with complex. He has this thing about saying no, especially to […]

Remembering Everly by J.L. Berg

You really should not read this book or this review if you haven’t read the first book, Forgetting August, this book without a doubt can’t be read without reading that book first. I loved Forgetting August, I mean I felt like it was really fresh and original and super interesting, the characters were compelling, and then it ended on like a big “whoa” moment. So naturally the second I finished reading Forgetting August, I preordered for this book, dying to know what was going to happen next. So a little recap is that August and Everly used to be together, August basically has amnesia after an attack. Everly is very affected by this both because he used to be her boyfriend and also because August was without a doubt emotionally abusive, like used to lock her in a room (to keep her safe). In the first book they actually get back together until the someone from August’s past shows back up and Everly leaves August and goes back to her old fiance, Ryan. And then it’s revealed at the end that August knows Everly is the one who hit him causing his coma and amnesia. It was such a set up for like a fantastic next book, I mean what is August going to do, is he going back to him callus ways and maybe blackmail her, or call the police, I mean what is going to happen. Is Everly going to fess up to Ryan what really happened between […]

More Than a Feeling by Sara Richardson

So I wanted to really like this book, but I have to admit that it reminded me a lot of a couple other books I had read with similar storylines. I will say that I really do love small town romances, and I do like the storyline of someone on the run or who has changed their identity, it always adds an extra layer of interest for me. So Ruby is the person on the run. One day she picked up her life and moved away, she just took the money she had in cash and started driving. When the story starts she’s been working in the kitchen for a little bit but she is still pretty closed off. I think she honestly just doesn’t want to get to attached or maybe she isn’t sure how to after the life she had that she left behind. The thing about Ruby is that she really liked where she is at, and the people she is with, so she just wants to make sure she doesn’t do anything to risk losing that life. She’s a really sweet girl, but she kind of annoyed me with her back and forth. I mean she would kiss Sawyer and then turn around in the next instant and be convinced that it could never happen again. As for Sawyer, he’s a stand up guy, he really is. When the book starts, he is about to leave town, he had some bad memories in his past that he […]

His All Night by Elle Wright

I am a huge fan of romances with the whole best friends sibling thing is there, although I do have a bit of a preference for best friends little sister, and this book was best friends brother, but hey I like it all. There really was no secrecy element in this book, which is normally there in this theme, but it worked for the book regardless. Also this is book two in the series, so there are a couple of points in the book (maybe two or three) where I felt like I was missing out on some good back story, especially with Jared’s sister, but it’s definitely a stand alone. So when the book start you have Calisa and Jared, who have been friends for a long time, connected by Jared’s sister, but their friendship really stands alone regardless of the sister. They have been in the middle of what could only be called a long term friends with benefits situation, one with rules and an easy out cause, and is just in general designed to keep romance and emotions out of it. Of course this does not go to plan in any way shape or form. Calisa was off putting to me in some situations. I loved that she was a strong woman who is proud of the fact that she is very independent. She’s also very fierce, especially when it comes to the people who she considers important her life, she’s the kind of friend you know […]
