After reading Until Alex , I jumped straightaway into this book. I needed more stories like that one. I needed more characters like Hayden and Alex. And of course, J Nathan didn't disappoint. But the only reason I couldn't give this one full 5 stars was because I needed Drew's pov. Like we got Hayden's and it was perfect.
This story needed his thoughts and feelings during the turn events. And omg, my theories...I had so many and a couple came to fruition, which was just insane. This story was so different from Alex and Hayden's, yet I felt just as attached. And I think that was why I wanted Drew's side of it. I wanted to feel his pain and sorrow and love, etc. However, it was still such a good read that sucked me right in. I started this last night and finished at work. I loved Andi. I felt everything she felt and was going through. She was such a strong heroine. Her determination to fight for her dreams, no matter the obstacles was noble and inspiring. She never whined or complained, she just dealt with everything so maturely. I loved her. And I could see why she fell for Drew. I did...tenfold. He was just amazing, filled with guilt and regrets, but he also was determined to go after what he wanted.
I just love the writing style J Nathan uses. Her words flow effortlessly from the pages, clutching at your heartstrings and never letting go. Both books were read in 2 days. That. Is. A record. I can't wait for the next book...Avery and Logan need their HEA now!!!...more
Here's to Falling. In love with one of the best books ever.
Holy freaking shit. I'm such a mess. This book...this book is not for the faint of the heartHere's to Falling. In love with one of the best books ever.
Holy freaking shit. I'm such a mess. This book...this book is not for the faint of the heart. It deals with so much tragedy and loss and heartbreak and lots of other shit that had me gasping, sobbing, praying for resolution and most of all, falling in love with these incredible characters. Jase, Charlie and Joey will reside in my heart for a very long time. I can barely see what I'm typing so I hope to God it makes sense. If not, well...oh fucking well. I'm in physical pain from this journey but it was well worth the ride. Definitely recommend this book if you like crying your eyes out. Or stories that make you feel .
I'll write a better review when I can get my bearings....more

The perfect ending. I'm so happy I'm crying tears of joy and sadness. Only because Sebastian and Payton's story is over. I loved every scene, every word, everything. I'm gonna miss these two something fierce. But I was so happy to be part of their journey. It wasn't an easy one; from the beginning, it was rocky and emotional. But together, they proved they could overcome the biggest obstacles and still survive. They became stronger because of it too. Especially together. Such a beautiful love story that I'll revisit again. *full review coming soon*...more

5++++ Read First of all, I owe Laura a huge THANK YOU for giving me an ARC of this wonderful littleArc kindly provided by the author for honest review
5++++ Read First of all, I owe Laura a huge THANK YOU for giving me an ARC of this wonderful little gem. I stumbled upon it, the cover actually, from an email of one of the blogs I follow. The cover intrigued me instantly and then the blurb sold me on it. I contacted Laura, asking for an ARC and she happily obliged. This was one of those books I started and couldn't put down. It was a Friday night I started and cancelled my plans so I could stay home and just read.
From the moment Landon entered the screen on my kindle, I knew I would love him. First of all, the book takes place in the summer. Both MC's are working at the pool as lifeguards. Landon's a football player and starting school in the fall. He's popular, well-liked, athletic, charming, smart, sexy...sexy...sexy. And every chapter with his POV, I was either smiling or swooning. Or drooling. Whatever. But later on in the story, we learn some secrets about our tortured hero. My heart went out to him. I hated his parents. I loved his friends...well, there were times I wanted to beat one of them in particular up, but eventually it changed. I was happy.
Our protagonist, Emma has to learn life lessons the hard way. Her home life isn't all it seems. Her mom's a waitress, barely making ends meet. Her sister has Down's Syndrome, so she keeps her personal life to herself. That is until she and Landon spend more time together. They both learn a lot about life and love, all the while trying to keep their scorching attraction from getting in the way. But honestly, from the moment they meet, it's totally there. I was rooting for these two to get together. But I also loved seeing their relationship grow and develop at a steady pace. The sexy times were just off the charts. My kindle was melting with all the hot steam. Hot damn! Laura sure can write an intense sex scene!
But this story was more than just sex and fighting attraction. It was also fighting against circumstances and for what you believe in. These two didn't have it easy. A huge twist towards the middle really had me gritting my teeth and wanting to scream. But the way both Landon and Emma handled it was really mature and understandable. Their journey to find and keep love was a heartbreaking and inspiring one.
I loved Evie. She was such a fireball. She was strong and funny and so adorable, especially with her boyfriend Garrett. Landon's interactions with Evie were so heartwarming, I swooned and awwwwed, so much. He truly became the rock Emma needed in her life. He stuck up for her when needed and he fought for her the whole way. His love was sincere and sweet.
I highly recommend this book to romance lovers. It's a story about love, life and fighting the obstacles we face to get where we wanna be. The writing was engaging and flowed effortlessly. I don't even remember if there were errors, but if they were, it didn't take away from the story one bit. Like I said, once I started...I couldn't stop. It's a story to experience with characters that will break and warm your heart all at once.
Great job, Laura! I will definitely be reading more of your work. And thanks again for sending me an ARC.
Wow!!!!!! This book was incredible. From start to finish. I devoured this baby and ate it up. This had the perfect mix of everything I need in my books. Best of all, it had Landon. Holy sweet Jesus. I love that sexy man!!!! I'm so elated to be one of the first to read and review this amazing story. It definitely taught me lots of life lessons. Add it to your TBR lists, people. It's a gem!!!
Too much. I can't get into this. I wanted more Echo and Noah, was over the moon excited for them! But...*looks at the floor in shame and sadness* thisToo much. I can't get into this. I wanted more Echo and Noah, was over the moon excited for them! But...*looks at the floor in shame and sadness* this just hasn't worked for me. So now it's going on the "on hold" shelf. Maybe I'll come back to it later. Sorry Noah. Still love you.
Yipppeeeeee! More Noah and Echo!!!!!!!!!!!! More Noah!!! Noah Noah Noah! Can't wait for this! ...more

She's so good at writing relateable, flawed and moving characters. Her stories are enjoyable and leave a big fat smile on your face. Or in this case, a frown for wanting more.
I loved Braden and Charlie. They've been friends for 12 years. They know each other inside and out. But when Charlie has to get a job to pay for her speeding tickets, she finds a job at a boutique. And she starts hanging out with girls a little, even though she has no clue what being a girl is really like. Being raised by her dad and having 3 older brothers, plus Braden all her life, has really made her a Tom boy. But she loves playing sports and being "one of the guys"....until she realizes her feelings for Braden become complicated. Not to mention, her late night chats at the fence that separates Braden and her houses, gets her to open up more. She feels she can talk easier to him late at night, as if she's just talking to the moon. Tension becomes thick. Even dating a nice guy like Evan doesn't help, because he doesn't know the real Charlie. Braden does. He doesn't know about her past, what really happened to her mom that night. Braden does. But is she willing to risk their long friendship for something more?! Would he? And how would her protective older brothers feel about it? Even though Braden is part of the family.
First off, I love this cover!!!! I love it even more having it in print. I'm a huge fan of Kasie West. She writes the best fictional boys. The ones that make your heart race with butterflies. The ones that make you remember your first love, your first kiss, and all the giddy feelings that went with it. Of course there's the awkwardness and confusion as well. But it's part of the experience. Part of the journey. And I'm happy to say that this book lived up to my expectations. I've waited for it to release since I finished The Distance Between Us last year. And I'm so glad to have it. It was amazing! The plot, the writing and especially, the characters!!! I loved that this was about family, friendship, the bond between a sister and her brothers, and taking chances on the scary unknown.
Gage, Nathan and Jerome were awesome older brothers. Obnoxious at times, but there was never a dull moment in their house. They all looked out for each other, and especially for Charlotte. Aka, Charlie. Aka, Charles Barkley. It reminded me of growing up with my brothers. Constantly on their tails and wanting to be around them all the time. They made me smile. They made me laugh. And they made me remember the good times. But there were emotional moments as well. Not having a mom around is hard for a young girl. Charlie has a hard time relating to girls her age. But at work, the girls eventually made her grow into herself. They also made her realize she doesn't have to change who she is to be liked. She just needs to step out of her comfort zone every once in awhile.
It was a great coming-of-age, coming-into-your-own, journey. I enjoyed it immensely. I wish there was more Braden and Charlie at the end though. That's my only complaint. But other than that, it's a winner. A real pretty gem for my shelf, to come back for a visit one day. Go read it.
Fuck! Fuck! Fuuuuuck! I need this book now! After reading her previous book and loving it so much my head is all fuzzy, I need this god damn book in my hands, or in my e-reader NOW! Please!!! I can't wait until July for more of this awesomeness!

Fuck! No! Oh my fucking God. It did NOT just end there. What the holy mother of bull shit?? Ahhhhh!! That is so cruel! OMG!! That last 20% had me constantly on edge. Jesus.

Awesome story!!! Totally amazing! I need the next one dammit!!
****MASSIVE RANT ALERT...READ AT YOUR OWN RISK AND DON'T BITCH FOR TOO MUCH CURSING. THANK YOU!****
Oh my sweet Jesus of all that is holy. I need to write this review because I can't stop reeling from this godforsaken cliffhanger that was just thrown at us. FUCK!!!!!!!
Okay, so take it from someone who's lived in Oklahoma, and more precisely, Tornado Alley. When there's a storm a comin, you take fucking shelter. It's pretty scary. Like holy fuck scary.
Anyway, this was pretty awesome. I was gifted this book from Caisey Quinn just last night. I've had my eye on this book for weeks and I can't tell you how giddy I was to finally have my greedy hands on it. THANK YOU CAISEY!!!!!!!
So I started it right away. Holy shitballs, I was sucked in right from the beginning.
So here it is, we got Kyle Mason who lives in Oklahoma as a farmer. Ella Jane, also known as EJ or Ellie May. She's Kyle's little sister, except she's not really little. She's 16, but Kyle is her older, protective sexy brother. God, I LOVE Kyle. Ahhhhh! LOVE LOVE LOVE. And then there's Coop. Well, Brantley Cooper, but he goes by Coop. I LOVE YOU COOP! #TEAMCOOP He's Kyle's best friend and EJ's long-time crush. He's gonna be a senior, EJ's gonna be a Junior and Kyle is going off to college. Kyle asks Coop to take care of her and make sure she doesn't get hurt while he's away at college.When Coop and EJ finally come to terms with their feelings for each other, something is always in the way. Coop is such an amazing friend. He loves Kyle and doesn't want to ruin his friendship with EJ, because bros before hos and all that shit, right?
Well, that's how he sees it. So when there's an opportunity to tell Kyle his true feelings about Ellie May, he says some stupid shit to drive her away. Ah! That truly killed me, Coop. But I forgive you as long as I can have your babies. Oh wait, did I say that out loud? Well oh well. I want your babies. Ha ha
So then we have Cameron(Cami) and Hayden(Asshole) who live in the rich snobby parts of Oklahoma. Hayden and Cami are together in the beginning but when the summer approaches, they decide to take a break because she's supposed to be on some island for the summer with her I'm-a-bitch-from-hell-cares-for-no one-but-myself mother, so she wants to be able to have summer flings with hot guys while she's gone. Hayden's cool with it. They're both forced into a relationship from their parents because they're the popular kids in school and have to be perfect blah blah fucking blah. Even though they only have sex and haven't had any emotional feelings toward each other. So when she finds out that her mom ditches her because she didn't win the motherfucking pageant, which she was like runner up for, she's all "well I said we'd celebrate if you won the pageant, but you didn't win so I'm gonna go off to the island by myself and shag every twenty year old in sight. Toodle-fucking-loo". I mean, really? What a bitch from HELL! Fuck you mom and your stupid pageant bull shit. I hated that woman. So poor Cami is left on her own for the summer to tweedle her thumbs and she's bummed. Her dad's not as bad but he doesn't stick around either. He's off on some work shit in another town and leaves her. I mean, where are these people from? Stupid parents that don't know proper parenting from their ass hole. Only Sophie their maid is there in the big house with Cami. She's the only one to ever give her any attention. This girl is affection-deprived. Poor thang! Ah! But when her parents hire help for the summer to take care of the lawn, guess who it is.
YES! It's Kyle Mason to the rescue! Holy shit their first interaction by the pool, was priceless. Holy shit! I was swooning like a crazy bitch. I loved Kyle from the first word. He's so hot. *sighs dreamily* Anyway, they meet and sparks fly like no other. The sexual tension thick as glass. DAYUM! That boy can make your panties melt right off you. The shit that comes out of his mouth makes you turn into putty at his feet. It's true. I'm in love with Kyle. Yes. So Kyle is the new lawn guy. He comes over weekly, daily, hell I forgot. He's such a distraction to my thoughts right now. But each time he comes over to cut the grass and weed and all that shit, he and Cami form a bond. It's beautiful. Lovely. Amazing. Real. Sweet. Hot. You get the point. She's never been so close to someone on an emotional level. And neither has he. But the more time they spend, the more their attraction becomes such a wonderful blooming flower. Okay, really I can go on and on. It's clear and cut and dry...I know I'm beating a dead horse in the mouth and that's really sad because I love horses. So I'll just say that Cami and Kyle share something new and exciting. But the only problem is, Cami doesn't share all her family secrets with him. He doesn't know everything about her the way he thinks. He only knows that she's never been told she's loved by her piss poor-rich asshole parents. And they expect her and Hayden to get married and grow old and live happily ever after. Ummmm, HELL NO! Cami doesn't love Hayden you dumb shits! If only you'd get your head out of your asses you'd know that. But sure it makes sense to them because of their social status and popularity.
Now that Hayden is free, he's shipped off to out-of-nowhere Oklahoma, where he has to help his grandfather tend his farm and landscaping business. Where he meets the Mason's because he's working for them. Kyle and EJ's father had an affair and walked out on the family so their mother is struggling with tending the house and shit. Another stupid asshole parent. What is wrong with all these douchebag parents that shit all over their kids? Poor Kyle. It's a lot for him to deal wit, especially when he finds out he's got a scholarship for football and he's gonna be great. But does it really matter now that everything has changed?
So Hayden helps with the business and meets EJ. That's all I'm saying about that.
Okay, my thoughts....I LOVED this book! Hardcore. When I found out it was in many pov's, I wasn't sure how it'd work. I did at first get confused but I pretty quickly was able to keep up. It worked. I loved the dynamic of these characters. The development was perfect. The pace was quick and easy to follow. The execution was just right. But holy shit on a stick fucking bloody hell it ends. CLIFFIE! Holy cliffie fuck! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I need that next book NOW!!!!!!!
I know many loved Hayden, but I didn't. Not one bit. Not even a hair. I'm not sure why. But honestly? I didn't feel the connection between him and EJ the way I felt it for Coop and Ellie May, which is his nickname for her. It's so sweet. Oh yeah, and another thing...I found Hayden to be a rich stuck-up arrogant asshole. Sorry, you can't love them all. And I sure as fuck didn't love him. Nope. COOP COOP COOP COOP! Of course I love Kyle so much! Is it obvious by how I talk about him and sigh and act like a giddy teenager? Good cause that's my intention. He's just the best of all of them.
I loved Cami too. Kyle and Cami are the best! EJ was sometimes a bitch but she, for the most part wasn't too bad. I just hope and pray and hope and pray and fucking hope like hell the next book will make me happy because after this ending, I'll need to be happy. I need my happy ending for Kyle and Coop. Omg, I'm so nervous. NERVOUS! How could you?? Seriously! Something happens at the end and I was literally not breathing. I'm so scared. OMG, ladies write fast. Please!
I think this about wraps up my ranting review. Go read it and see for yourself what a crazy cliffie this shit is. You'll be screaming and yelling and cursing like I was. And still am. And it's after 3 am. But who needs sleep, right? Ahhh, I guess I could sleep and dream of Kyle and Coop in my bed. Oh yeah, I'm gonna go now and have naughty dreams.
Still thinking about Kyle, hours later. He's become a top book boyfriend. I need more Kyle in my life. Now!! ...more

Motherfucking awesome story!!! Holy shit! I want more! It was too short! I need more!!! Gah!
Daniel Six Holder Sky I loved this little treasure. I loved Skylar and Holder in Hopeless. But Daniel and Six rocked my socks off in Finding Cinderella. Those two were so funny, sweet, flirty and just perfect together. They had me laughing so much and then I'd be swooning like a fucking teenager. But at the end, I was crying. So heartbreaking. And then through my tears, I was laughing again.
Loved Daniel and Six's story. It was awesome that Hoover released it for free. I would've paid for it. Now I'm wanting more. God damn, I want a full book. Am I just selfish? Can I not be happy with what I get?
Fuck no. I want more. Selfish or not. I love those two. I have nothing left to say. ...more
