Zoe is his total opposite, but the more he gets to know her the more he finds himself liking her. Zoe is a sassy, impulsive girl who finds herself falling for Grant, despite the warnings her brother gives her about the kind of guy Grant is. Can Zoe and Grant find love when Grant's a player afraid of commitment and Zoe is looking for her own HEA?
I am so glad we got Grant's side of things. If we hadn't, I don't know that I would have wanted Zoe to keep giving him more chances to get it together. As it is, I think she should have stopped! Why did she even like him? I really liked Zoe--except for the fact that she kept putting up with Grant's crap!
I loved the focus on friendship here, especially with Zoe and Delia. She was a true friend, and I think that's so important at this age group. I also loved Grant's best friend, Aiden. A lot.
I didn't read the first book in this series, but that didn't keep me from appreciating what was going on here. The story got monotonous and there was a lot of high school drama here. Yes, I realize this is YA set in high school, but you know what I mean. Drama for the sake of drama isn't fun. This was a fast read, though, and I was glad for that.
Fast and dramatic, The Boyfriend Bet has a sassy heroine and a jerk hero who somehow find love in a hopeless place.

Picking up after the first book in The Brightside series by Katie Delahanty, In Bloom, Blushing has Berkeley and Olivia happy and engaged when Berkeley is making the leap from rock god to movie star. Determined to keep up his heartthrob persona, his people don't want anyone to know about his engagement to Olivia. How can they have their happily ever after when Berkeley is doing sex scenes with his ex and they're spending most of their time apart?
Good question. And the answer to that would be that they're adults. My whole issue with this book is that Berkeley was a celebrity before he met Olivia--she was already used to millions of women lusting after her man. She was already into the scene. I'm not saying it wouldn't be hard, but she already had to establish trust in order to be with him in the first place. One of the things that I liked the most about In Bloom was that it was relatively fluffy. In fact, I wanted a little more drama. This book had that, but it felt stupid and unnecessary. I missed the romance and swoon that I felt in In Bloom, too, though there was some of that here. Overall, I just didn't like this one as much as the first one, and I kind of wish I had left it with that.

Where do I even start with this book? Thomas Street became obsessed with Katie when she was a lunch lady at the prison he was serving time in. I don't think they spoke one word to each other the entire time she worked there. Fast forward two years (I think), and Street's out--and he finds finds Katie. She gets him a job at the bookstore she works at, and then...you know what happens. They fall in love. Sort of. I mean, they do, but there's so much back and forth between them, I don't even know.
There were hot moments, but hardly. If you want a bad boy (literally) with dirty thoughts and lots of drama while nothing really happens, then maybe check out Hard Time. Personally, I think you can skip it.
I like fighter stories and was intrigued as soon as I saw this pop up on NG. This story was okay. It basically begins with a crazy case of #instalove
Now, I'm a fan of instalove in certain cases. But here, I just didn't get it. Anyway, Cutter and Josette fall in love and when he's getting ready to go on the fighting circuit, she breaks up with him. There's other stuff that happens that may be a trigger for some people and some crazy drama, and the two lose touch for a few years. Fast forward to the present and they see each other again. Josette was keeping something huge from Cutter. Will they be able to get over their pasts and the secrets and find love?
I hated Josette. I mean I literally hated her. I don't want to give away anything that happens in this story, but I seriously wish Cutter had just dropped her. Ugh. Since I didn't get the whole appeal in the first place, I just couldn't connect with these characters' story. Also, I can't believe that Garrett and Rian didn't tell Cutter what was going on. Anyway, I just didn't like this book. If you want my opinion, I say skip it....more
NFL player Derek McLaughlin is minding his own business, dealing with the loss of his girlfriend by partying and being a manwhore when he literally runs into veterinarian Hayden. Sparks instantly fly and there's a lot of back and forth between them since neither are looking for a relationship. All the while, there's some drama brewing at Hayden's office. Will Derek and Hayden be able to get over their pasts to find love in a hopeless place?
I don't know why I just quoted that. But, moving on.
I love love after loss stories and stories where the "player" falls in love. If this had been fic, I would have probably loved it. But there were too many Twilight-esque references for me not to constantly roll my eyes and think really?!?
I'd spent the rest of the night watching her sleep.
This storyline was okay, but the pacing was a little slow for me, and when I finished, I had a hard time articulating exactly what happened besides what I said up there. ↑↑↑
I had a hard time connecting with these characters and felt like they acted immature and stupid most of the time. Some of it was so ridiculous, not to mention the fact that practically right after he met her, Derek is going on and on about how much he feels more for Hayden than he ever did for his girlfriend who died. Other people were totally on this bandwagon, too.
"I've never seen him do anything like this for anyone, not even when he was dating former Cougar cheerleader Brianna Ward."
I also wasn't a fan of the whole mystery going on in Hayden's veterinary practice. I just didn't think that it made sense--this girl was supposed to be smart! Despite this, I did think there were some hot sexy times and I thought they deserved each other.
I don't think I've read the other books in this series, but that was no issue--you can totally read this as a standalone. Defending Hayden had good potential with an interesting storyline and broken characters trying to get over their pasts, but the insta-love coupled with lack of connection between them and their misguided motivations left me wanting more....more
Jay is a swimmer, training for the Olympics when he meets Lia, a sweet girl who comes from a strict Italian family. Sparks fly, but they're so opposite--will they be able to work it out?
I really love sports romances and I love swimmers, so I knew I had to read this one. Unfortunately, this book just wasn't that great to me. I had trouble connecting with these characters, and I kept putting this book down until I basically forced myself to finish it. There's not a whole lot going on here, and I think that could partially be my misconception since I read it in sporadic periods.
Magan Vernon is one of my favorite NA authors, so I definitely think you should give her other books a try. This one just didn't connect with me....more

But the characters were so annoying, the pacing was annoying, and I really abhor stories where captives fall in love with their captors. I just didn't want to keep going. So I didn't.
BFFs to more is one of my favorite storylines, but this story was just too unbelievable. First of all, no teenagers use facebook. I guess if these kids were 12, the book would be more realistic.
Aside from that, the characters were okay, but I didn't really care about them or if they got together. The idea for this story was fantastic, but you'd think two best friends wouldn't have such communication issues. I'm a YA lover, but this was just too much drama for me.
With an unrealistic storyline and characters that I didn't care about, this is one Girlfriend Request you can skip....more
I really love this storyline--falling for the best friend's sibling is one of my favorites. So, I thought I would love this for sure. I think I'm just a sucker for these covers, and I keep expecting them to be hotter because they're Entangled. I guess this Crush line is more like the Bliss line's younger, less experienced sister.
Felix is Hazel's best friend's brother, so when his sister cheats with Hazel's boyfriend, he comes up with a plan for Hazel to get back at them. That plan involves him and Hazel getting closer and of course they realize they've been right in front of each other all along.
I liked both of their personalities--though I really don't understand how Hazel was ever friends with Felix's sister. There just wasn't a whole lot to this story. Felix was swoony and their relationship made sense. There was some humor and the story was overall pretty fluffy, but it was all just kind of meh.
If you're looking for a young YA read, Not Okay Cupid might be a good choice for you. You might like it more than I did....more
The whole forbidden love thing here works, but I didn't care for these characters and didn't think their relationship was believable. The pacing of the story was fine and I liked their backstory, but *shrugs* This one just wasn't for me....more
I've read something else by Cathryn Fox before (Hold Me Down Hard) and didn't like it, but I decided to give this quick novella a try. No doubt about it, this story is hot. The past relationship (or really acquaintance) that Jag and Alix share only adds a bit to the story. I didn't really care about them or if everything/anything worked out with them. The idea for this story--this series, really--is very interesting and I'm glad I read this book. No surprises here, I didn't like Alix, but Jag was super hot and their sexy times were steamy.
If you want a fast, steamy read with little else in the departments of character or story development, Sweet Ride might just be exactly what you're looking for....more
Something must be wrong with me. I'm all about one-time hookups that turn into more. Add to that, the dude is a DILF, and I feel like I should have loved this. I didn't. They had steamy times, but I guess I needed more. The whole story was rushed--at 77 pages, I suppose it had to be. With characters I didn't care about and a too-short storyline, A Night of Misbehaving wasn't what I was expecting. ...more
When I read the synopsis for this book, I was all. over. it. DILF Bartender with ties to the mob? Yes, please. Innocent school teacher who isn't going to know what hit her when she gets tangled up with said DILF Bartender? I'm on it. And it's a Brazen book so that promises steamy hotness? *nods* I think the hype I built up for it in my mind maybe made me have an unrealistic expectation. Whatever the reason, A Moment of Weakness was just meh. And that makes me sad. I felt like the characters were attracted to each other for the sake of getting it on. I didn't feel a connection to any of them, and I felt like the storyline was underwhelming. Micah was an asshole and Laurel was a doormat. It had such potential, and I really wanted to like it, but I didn't.
I was so excited to read this book. I love military guys and this one sounded so perfect. Unfortunately, Coach Maddie and the Marine didn't live up to the hype I had built up for it in my mind.
There are some things that I did like, including the football stuff and Maddie's nephew. Hew was cute and realistic. This is a super fast read, and I think maybe if it had been longer, I would have liked it more. There's drama and miscommunication and angst--I wasn't expecting that here. And not enough time to fix it in a believable way. I usually don't mind instalove, but this was just too much. And David pissed me off--a lot. Add to that, this is a Bliss book with FTBs, so we didn't even have hotness to make up for the lack of chemistry and crazy things they were doing.
With a great background story, Coach Maddie and the Marine was a good idea but lacked character development and chemistry. You can skip this one. ...more
This is kind of a fun twist in what we’re used to seeing in that the girl is the one who decides to infiltrate the “enemy’s” camp. When Shannon’s family name is in trouble, she decides to get a job at the competition’s ranch to catch them in their suspected cheating. When she gets the job, she totally doesn’t expect enemy number one Sean to be so honorable, not to mention so hot. Sparks were flying from the moment they met.
Sean was the star here. With his sexy accent and muscles, he stole the show. I liked the other characters well enough. There were a lot of problems, though. I would think first and foremost that a ranch of this caliber would be running background checks on their employees and don’t even get me started on the evidence that Shannon supposedly uncovers. But what absolutely ruined this book for me was the ending. And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that, besides that it was way to rushed and kind of ridiculous. Getting Lucky needs more character development and a tighter storyline to live up to its potential....more
You know I love football romances and I love Romeo & Juliet, so I wanted to read this one as soon as I heard about it. The summary for it is basically exactly what happens. Kendall and Drew have a one-time hookup, only to later discover that they’re basically archrivals. She’s the GM of one team, he’s the star of the other team. Of course, they can’t stop thinking about each other. Will they get past their jobs to be together or was one night enough for them?
First of all, I thought it was totally unbelievable that Kendall wouldn’t have known who Drew was. If his team wasn’t the rival of her team, then maybe. But even then, I would think that the GM of any NFL franchise would be familiar with the most important players on all of the teams in their division, even a temporary GM. And especially when you factor in that her team is trying to steal him. But that’s just me. *shrugs*
I thought Drew and Kendall had great chemistry and the story, including all of the football stuff, was interesting. I really liked Drew. He was sweet and swoony, but there was just something I didn’t love about this story. It was overall kind of meh for me. I didn’t care about them or if they worked it out–at all.
With instalust that turns into instalove and an unbelievable situation, Covering Kendall just wasn’t for me....more
I don't really know how to rate this book because I flounced, pretty early on. I skimmed through a lot of it, but I just didn't love it. Or lFlounced.
I don't really know how to rate this book because I flounced, pretty early on. I skimmed through a lot of it, but I just didn't love it. Or like it, even. I didn't like the characters--they're juvenile and borderline ridiculous. The way their feelings develop is unrealistic, and I figured there are lots and lots of other books I'd rather be reading. *shrugs*
So. This book. Billionaire Mason Talbot is socially inept and doesn't know how to act around women. When his new employee is crazyhot and not afraid to use her assets, he can't resist himself. Although she's totally against mixing business with pleasure, it doesn't take long for her to give in.
I didn't like much about this book, but I really didn't like Camilla. She was bitchy and ridiculous. As for Mason, *shrugs* I really didn't care. I guess that's the overall general feeling I had about this book as a whole. Meh. The best thing about this book was that it was a fast read. ...more
When I first signed up for this tour, I have to admit that I didn't realize it was about depression. I just saw the cover and thought cake!!!--I needz it. I probably wouldn't have signed up if I had known, but now I am glad that I did.
Seventeen-year-old Molly is in therapy for depression, which has robbed her of all of her joy and interest in most of the things she used to love. When she finds out the store she works at might be closing down, she rallies everyone to save it. Meanwhile, Molly's mom decides to bake a cake every day in an effort to get closer to her daughter and help her come out of her depression.
...maybe this could work for me too? Maybe there is some combination of sugar, eggs, and flour that can make me care about school dances and four-hundred meter relay times and college applications. If there is, I will gladly eat piece after piece every day for the rest of my short type-2-diabetic life.
I seem to be different among my reading friends in that I seriously, whole-heartedly loved All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, and there were parts of this book that reminded me of that. Not so much that there was a sweet, swoony Finch around, but rather I found myself thinking "What if Theodore Finch had been able to go on these meds or had this therapist--well, not this therapist, but you know what I mean--or had a mom who actually paid attention? Would he still be here?" All of that to say that the thing I didn't like about AtBP made me so happy here. Molly is dealing with some real stuff, but she's not trapped in a closet in her room. She has a great support system, including her best friend.
100 Days of Cake has good character development, and you can tell that Shari Goldhagen didn't just write this book to jump on the depression "bandwagon"--this topic obviously means something to her, and I appreciate that. But there were parts of the story that dragged along for me, and there were parts that made no sense at all to me, like the ending. I didn't like Molly, even a little bit. I guess it's easy not to like self-absorbed, bratty 17-year-olds, but come on. She's mean to her sister--I mean really horrible, and I honestly don't see what Alex saw in her. Molly's redeeming factor for me was that she was obsessed with watching Golden Girls #lesbisonsftw
I really liked Molly's mom and found that I understood where she was coming from, from the inception of the 100 days of cake to the secret she held. I would do anything to protect my kids, and I totally felt for this lady who was just trying to do anything for her daughter, to help "bring her back" in a way. I also really loved Pickles, the hermit crab.
There were things that really made me cringe, starting with her therapist. Dude should be in jail. Or at least disbarred. And that's all I'm going to say about that. Besides what the hell is wrong with you?!?
Dealing with a very sensitive subject, 100 Days of Cake might be a good choice for you if you're looking for a realistic story about depression. Personally, I'd skip this one....more
I love retellings. I love imagining beloved characters in different settings and reading about how they react. If it's a characte1-1/2 stars. Or none.
I love retellings. I love imagining beloved characters in different settings and reading about how they react. If it's a character or story that I really love, like Aladdin, then I am all over it. And this story? *jumpyclaps* When I was a junior in high school, our prom theme was "A Whole New World," recommended by yours truly. I still sleep with an Aladdin pillowcase on my pillow sometimes (when hubs isn't going to make fun of me). To say I was excited about this book would be an understatement. So maybe that's why it sort of kills me that this was so...not good.
A Whole New World takes all of the canon elements from the Disney version of the story and adds one twist: what if Jafar got to Genie first? How would everything change? The beginning of this book is pretty much exactly like the movie, until Jafar gets the lamp instead of Aladdin. Therein lies the problem for me, I guess. There is no further characterization or anything added to the world. Since I love the original Disney version so much, I don't really car about these "new" characters or the developments, of which there wasn't much. Here's the thing: the summary promised a Street Rat [becoming] a leader and a princess [becoming] a revolutionary. That may have happened, but I didn't buy into with the way Braswell built (or didn't build) the story. And these characters didn't show any different traits than they did in the original. Wouldn't at least Jasmine be basically a totally different person if she was ousted from the Palace rather than a sheltered princess? Really, I think Braswell should have told the story from Iago's point of view.
So, what if you haven't watched the Disney version of this movie? *gasp* Go out and watch it right now! Seriously.
Unfortunately, readers who aren't familiar with the film will be disappointed and lost since this draws basically every reason we would have for caring from the movie. Readers who know and love the movie will also be disappointed, too. So, overall, this was a huge disappointment.
When I started writing this review, I struggled to find something I liked about this book. There's a lot of action, and and the genie is awesome. It was fun to revisit some of my favorite characters. And there was slightly more kissing.
But there wasn't enough romance and there was pretty much no swoon. Which, come on, Aladdin was swoony.
Well, he swooned. Anyway, this book was immature and just not thought out well. I've read wayyyy better fanfic for sure. I put this book down a thousand times and basically forced myself to finish reading it. Why didn't I flounce? I don't know, but I hope I save you some time and money. There's really no reason to bother reading this, honestly. I'm not sure that I'll bother with Braswell's future books, either.
If this had been fanfic, I probably would have loved it. Basically, Justice Drake offers sex education classes which are mostly for housewives who get sent to him because they suck in bed. He falls for his client, Ally, which breaks pretty much every rule he’s ever made. He tries to resist, but of course he can’t. The summary makes him sound like a total badass, but I felt like he was…just not.
Don’t get me wrong. He was totally hot. And funny, most of the time. And the steamy scenes were hotttt. But there was little more to this than that, and the ending wasn’t my favorite. The steamy hot couple and interesting storyline didn’t make up for the pacing and turnaround the hero did in Taint by S.L. Jennings....more
Warning: This review is spoilery, but that's the way I roll.
I'll be the first to admit that I don't read very many motorcycle club-esque stories. So, some of the things that I didn't like about this book might just be attributed to my naiveté. Actually, one of the things. But that's a big thing.
Liv is waiting in a bar in a questionable part of town when some even more questionable guys try to talk to her.
"A pretty little lady like you shouldn't be all alone. Me and my men would be happy to offer our company."
She runs into her old friend from college, Devin Ancanster, who is now known as Shock. They remember each other very well--they both wanted each other but something stopped them from allowing their relationship to be more than friends and study partners. They might have said what that was, but I can't remember. Regardless, there's this underlying sexual tension on both of their parts. She's hot and beautiful, and he's a big motorcycle-riding dude, so you know they both want to be all over each other. I guess.
When Shock (who I want to refer to as Devin because I just can't get over the name and that's what she called him in college) saves her from being assaulted, he offers to bring her home. She reluctantly lets him. She recalls that he came from big money, and he tells her that he has even more of it now. Convenient, since she's in desperate need of money (view spoiler)[to pay for her sister to have life-saving surgery (hide spoiler)]. After exhausting every avenue to get the money she needs, she goes to DevinShock, and asks to borrow $50,000.
At first, he's pissed. But then he agrees. In return, he wants her to do something for him.
"You want me to..."--she stared into his steely brown eyes-- "... to date you?"
"Sweetheart, it's not a date I want from you."
Liv sees no other option but to take him up on his offer, so she signs the contract he sends over with some negotiation. Honestly, that part was pretty ridiculous, but whatever. As part of their deal, he picks her up for their month together and takes her to house, where he's more than ready to get their party started. She reveals some stuff to him that is pretty shocking (no pun intended), and as a result, DevinShock is surprisingly gentle with her. All along, Liv realizes that maybe she's more into the idea than she thought.
"Fuck, you are so wet."
He tried to draw his hand away again, but she grabbed his wrist and pulled it back.
"Then do something about it."
We're left with a cliffy, but of course we knew we would be. This is a novella, the first of three, so we expect the second to have an even bigger cliffhanger.
So, what did I like? DevinShock is pretty forward, and I liked that about him.
"Sweetheart for fifty grand, it's going to be a hell of a lot longer than one night." He raised an eyebrow. "and I expect you to be one exceptional fucking lay."
The whole point of the contract is skeevy to me, but I like his personality (what we saw of it) and think he can be funny.
Didn't Like: First of all, the names really threw me off. Like I said, I haven't read other motorcycle club books, so this might all be normal, but really? In addition to Shock, there's Hawg, Crow, Magic, Dom (which I guess is also a real name), and Wild Card. I mean...
I'm not even going to address how totally unbelievable this story is. (view spoiler)[I will admit that since I don't have a sister, maybe I don't really understand how much someone would be willing to sacrifice to save her. Also, I do not understand the medical industry, because I was under the impression if you need life-saving surgery, you have it. And the hospital bills you, and you pay for it for the rest of your life. Right? Even more than that, given Liv's history, the idea that she would agree to this contract seems utterly insane and unrealistic. js (hide spoiler)] Not to mention that she goes back to that area with the bar, where she was almost raped. As in goes back there again--the next night. O.O
Also, it just wasn't hot to me. It could have been hot, but I don't feel like I knew them well enough. So why am I reading the next installment? I just want to know what happens. I don't even know why.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more
Hard Ride #2 picks up right where Hard Ride #1 left off and is slightly less ridiculous than the first installment. Well, maybe it's more ridiculous.
It's a toss-up, really.
Again, I'm being spoilery.
We're still at Shock's country house and after Shock and Liv get down to business, all of his crew rolls up. There's romance and questioning of where their relationship is headed and an orgy in the pool. There's a cliffhanger at the end, of course, but it's something that I didn't see coming, so I appreciated that.
What did I like? I actually liked Shock more in this one. He's got a romantic streak, and even though I thought his feelings were a little fast, thinking back on it, I'm not surprised. He had a thing for her in college, so this isn't all new to him. I just hate that he likes her.
She is legit batshit crazy. I can't even wrap my mind around this girl. (view spoiler)[She throws herself at his friend and basically wants to take part in group sex so she can get used to being without Shock--all while still reeling from what happened to her when she was in college. (hide spoiler)] I know I keep using the word ridiculous, but that's what she is.
"Oh, it's so hard. Does it hurt when that happens?"
What is she, 14?
She outright lies to him when Shock asks if she's developing feelings for him. Thank rob I've been with my husband for 18 years, because if this is what "dating" is like now, I'd never survive it. It's so common in books for both of them to lie about whether they even freaking like each other because they're afraid of getting cast aside. Guess what? If you lie about having feelings for each other you are guaranteed not to end up together--and your feelings will be hurt. I mean, unless you're in a romance novel.
"And you don't want it to be any more than that?"
She gazed at him, keeping her heart in check. "No. Of course not."
I just can't stop shaking my head at her.
Also, the trope of running into a bitter ex and comparing sex stories is fucking old. Stop telling it.
Again, I'm reading the last installment in the series because I want to know what happens to them. Call me a glutton for punishment. Hey, maybe Carew will turn it all around in Hard Ride #3 and it will be the best. thing. ever.
If you didn't read Hard Ride #1 and Hard Ride #2, this is going to be spoilery. So proceed with caution. Or actually, go ahead and skip this whole series.
What's the best way to get over being raped and then forced into signing a contract to be a sex slave in order to get the money to save your dying sister? Oh right, fuck four men at once.
That's pretty much all you need to know about this book, because if you were holding out for this--you got it. And it's not even hot.
Hard Ride #3 picks up right after the end of Hard Ride #2, with Liv and Shock still dealing with their feelings for each other, and their inability to express them. There are some moments when each of them thinks the other could have real feelings, but of course, they quickly admonish them.
"Don't worry"--she pulled on her T-shirt and jeans--"it was just an act."
I don't even know what to say about this book, other than it's just...not good. It's not believable and I feel like Carew did these characters an injustice. The details aren't well thought out--it's almost as if she thought I want to write a foursome (or was it a fivesome, I can't remember), so how do I get there? The characters' actions are not authentic to what we've been told about their pasts. Then again, Liv's never have been. I still liked Shock, I guess. He steps up and helps out and seems to be a genuinely good guy. And I do love the covers.
I'll give Carew this--the ending completely shocked me. After looking at some of the other reviews for her previous works, I shouldn't be. But honestly, I don't know why anyone would think this ending was appropriate in any way.
If you're looking for a hot motorcycle gang erotic romance with group sex, this might be your cup of tea. I doubt it, though. #fail ...more

I was excited to check this book out, but I just could not connect with these characters--at all. Sloane was a whiny little brat and Galen, though hot and Scottish, just couldn't make up for that. She was annoying; they were annoying together; the drama was annoying.
