True Love Story is one of the most beautiful love stories I've ever read. The story starts off and while I'm a bit confused, I'm already hooked. Literally read the first paragraph and stopped everything to give this book my complete attention. Can't say many books have done that to me.
"He reaches over and grabs my hand and laces our fingers together. "You're going to break my heart Sparrow Fisher." And I think,Not before you break mine. "
From the minute they meet, it might as well be the end for everyone else. They have an instant connection that can't be denied. But I can also tell that Ian Sterling is trouble with a capital T. He's a rock star, sexy, and dangerous in a way that only a man used to getting exactly what he wants is. He's also damaged and we all know those two things don't go well together.
I loved Sparrow's sense of humor. In fact, it's the first thing that caught my attention about her. The thing about Sparrow is that she is beautiful, like model beautiful but what sets her apart from everyone else is that she doesn't even notice. And even more, she's more beautiful on the inside. She captures guys attentions with her looks and make them fall in love with her personality. She's rare. At times she seemed a little heartless, especially in the beginning but making hard decisions can do that to you.
While I knew Sparrow and Ian had an instant connection it irritated me a bit with how obsessed she seemed to get about him. I mean, I don't blame her one bit and I know if the roles were reversed I'd be doing the same thing but I guess it just bothered me because most of the time they were separated and Ian was absent a lot.
""I've been looking for you" his eyes are saying. "You've found me now", I'm certain my eyes are responding."
The book takes place throughout five years, going from the present to the past so we can really get to know exactly what happened to Sparrow and Ian. This book is in no way some instant-love with happy in every chapter. This book is realistic, which can make it really sad and heart breaking at times but that's what I loved about it. The characters are flawed, relate-able and will do things to your sanity and heart. You'll want to punch them and cry for them all at the same time. I've heard people talk about how sometimes a book can make them literally feel an ache in their heart but I've never really understood what that meant until I read this book. My heart hurt SO much!
I don't want to give anything else away because part of the beauty of this book is never knowing what's going to happen next but just know that True Love Story is like nothing you've ever read before. It's a beautiful story filled with the ugly realities of life and yet the hope that love can truly conquer all at the end. I look forward to reading more from Willow Aster!
"Born to love you, baby… Die lovin’ you, my Sylvie.”
I am so in love with Creed!! I didn't think it was possible but this book is even better then Kni"Born to love you, baby… Die lovin’ you, my Sylvie.”
I am so in love with Creed!! I didn't think it was possible but this book is even better then Knight.
Creed and Slyvie's story really broke my heart! I'm not even ashamed to say that I had tears in my eyes many times throughout this book. What happened to both of them is just sick and I can't believe all they've been through.
I can not wait to read the next book in this series! If you haven't read this series yet, please do!
“I’m not what you want, Sylvie, I get that because it’s the same for you as it is for me. I’m not what you want ‘cause I’m what you need.”

One part of me loved this book, another wishes I'd never read it. Sure, I knew this was going to be the ending of their story; I was prepared for that but now that I've finished I don't think I am. I wanted a good ending, and we get one, but at the same time that wasn't what I wanted at all.
Going into the book, I was part excited, part sad. I knew that something bad was going to happen and I was nervous to see what would happen. And when you get to that heart breaking point, I felt so sad for both of them. But then, things started to get a bit boring. I can't believe I'm saying this but I actually found myself wondering when things would get better. I think it was because Camryn was depressed and Andrew was feeling hopeless but the first half was hard for me to get through. But then, the road trip came into the book and suddenly I couldn't read fast enough.
The Edge of Always may be about the same people but it felt like a completely different book then The Edge of Never. We get to see Camryn and Andrew mature, have fun but at the same time struggle with the responsibilities of being an adult. I loved reading this but I felt most of the book is just fast forwarding throughout their lives. A lot of this book was in Andrew's POV which I loved but even that couldn't keep my attention for long. Don't get me wrong, I loved reading this and I'm happy with it but it just didn't hold my attention as much as the first book did. I felt like it a bit rushed, switching from one scene to the next. And sometimes months would go by throughout a chapter and I couldn't help but wonder what they were doing for all that time.
The epilogue confused me a bit, mainly because I wasn't expecting it to be in this person's POV but it wasn't a bad surprise. I liked that we were introduced to Elias and Brayelle who will be getting their own book; they definitely caught my interest and I'm intrigued to see where things go for them. It's been weeks since I finished this book and I still don't really know how to explain my feelings for this book. I think I had a certain expectation for this book and it didn't follow it at all. I loved The Edge of Always but is it wrong that a part of me wishes she didn't write it at all? If you're freaking out thinking I hated this book, I didn't. Maybe just a little disappointed, but overall I liked the book.
****** OH MY GOD!!! I GOT APPROVED FOR AN ARC COPY!!!!
** Camryn and Andrew are getting another book!!!
And J.A. Redmerski says: "THE EDGE OF NEVER first introduced you all to Camryn Bennett and even though the story was written in both the POV's of Camryn and Andrew Parrish, it was *mostly* in Camryn's POV. But THE EDGE OF ALWAYS, I'm excited to announce, will *mostly* be in the POV of Andrew Parrish! And the cover will look a lot like Camryn's cover except it will have Andrew on it! :-D So, to all of you die-hard cover-obsessed readers out there, you'll get a nicely done matching themed cover to look great on your bookshelf next to THE EDGE OF NEVER.As I mentioned, right now I can't go too into details about THE EDGE OF ALWAYS, but yes, it is a sequel, yes there will be more road trip scenes and yes, there will be more 'hardships' that Camryn and Andrew will face. But that's all I can say! "
More Scences from Andrew's POV? More Road trip scenes?
When it comes to A. Meredith Walters, I will pretty much read anything she writes. I read the first book in the seriesRead more of my reviews at here
When it comes to A. Meredith Walters, I will pretty much read anything she writes. I read the first book in the series which was about her best friend Maysie, and I liked it. But I enjoyed Perfect Regret a thousand times more.
I knew from the last book exactly how Riley was, and I was okay with that. But I'm not going to lie, she really made me mad at times. At first I was really into it and all "You go girl" but after a while it really started to get old. She was being so hateful for NO REASON Not to mention she's judgmental as hell. She said that she didn't think she was better then everyone else but her actions said otherwise. I wanted to understand, and at times I did but she made it so hard some times. Don't get me wrong: I loved Riley but she definitely made me want to scream at times. It seems to be a reoccurring theme when it comes to the characters in this series but I must love it since I always come back for more.
*Received a copy as part of the blog tour. Garrett really surprised me. He comes off as someone who doesn't really care about anything, just trying to get by in life doing the minimum but he's so much more. I really didn't expect him to be such a closet romantic. The things he said had butterflies in my stomach and made my heart skip a beat on more then one occasion. I really wish I could find a guy like Garrett because he's perfect in all the ways that count. I felt bad for the way Riley would treat him at times but he always came back for more and it was very obvious he had feelings for her from the beginning.
I think one of my favorite things about this book was that we got to see Maysie and Jordan. It was great seeing them function as a couple, especially since all that drama in the first book. I loved all the other characters as well and I'm really hoping they get their own stories.
Drove me crazy but in a good way. I couldn't put it down and I definitely couldn't stop reading. If you haven't read the first one I suggest you start with that one. You don't have to but it's always more fun to start from the beginning and get to know the other characters story. ...more

But as always, Elizabeth Reyes wrote an exceptional story and pulled me from the first chapI was both excited and little nervous to read Gio's story. But as always, Elizabeth Reyes wrote an exceptional story and pulled me from the first chapter.
Bianca is so sweet. She's the type of girl that is beautiful inside and out. She's selfless, laid back and really cool. She's deserves so much more in her life then what she has but she doesn't complain once. I know I should be against the whole cheating thing but honestly? I don't feel like Felix's deserves her at all. He never appreciated her and always took her for granted. I think this whole thing was karma. You know, what comes around goes around.
Gio is amazing. I know the situation wasn't the best but he's honestly a great guy. He's always had a thing for Bianca but he never purposely went out to get her. He's all about loyalty and friendship so you know he wouldn't do something like that unless it was serious. He's been going through a bit of a rough patch too and Bianca was there for him and they really connected. It couldn't be helped and yeah, they shouldn't have done it but that's life.
Despite the fact that Felix is kind of a douche, I really hope he gets his own story. You can tell that he's actually a really good guy he just can't commit for shit. I also can't wait to read Abel's story. He's so quiet and kind of brooding so it would be interesting to see who he ends up with.
Gio is a great addition to what's looking to be an awesome series. No surprise really considering who the author is. If you haven't already, do yourself a favor and check out this series!

I guess a part of me was scared I wouldn't be as good as the first book but thankfully I was so wrong.
I won't lie, when I first met Katie in the first book, I judged her. She loves pink, always seems happy and slept with BOTH Zan and his brother Zack and just seemed like one of those airhead sluts. Considering in the first chapter alone, she slept with Styker, I honestly wasn't sure I would ever like her. But there's so much more to Katie then what appears. She acts like that way and does stupid things she knows she shouldn't because she doesn't want anyone to really know who she is. In a way it kind of seems like a cry for her and luckily enough Stryker hears it and wants to help.
Styrker. I loved him from the first book and that just grew with this book. I honestly don't even know how to describe how I feel about him. He's perfect. Or at least as perfect as someone with imperfections can be. Don't get me wrong, Stryker definitely makes mistakes (one of which I don't feel Katie should have forgiven him so easily for) but underneath it all he's a really great guy. A guy who's been through a lot and has a pretty messed up past but I loved how he didn't let that define him.
It was great seeing the gang again, especially Zane and Lottie. I really missed them so much so that now I feel like reading their story again. I'm not sure who the next book will be about but I'm hoping it'll be about Audrey and Will. I'm also hoping that Trish gets her own book but I honestly don't see how that could happen.
Overall, Faster We Burn was amazingly awesome and I can't wait to read more from this Author. If you haven't already and you love New Adult, please pick up this book!

Nobody is more surprised that I read this book then me. Why? Because this book has one of my biggest turn offs for a book: the heroine is older then the love interest. I know, I know, it shouldn't be such a big problem but for me it is. I never, EVER read a book if she's older then the guy. It's stupid but I just don't like it. The moment I even get a hint that there's an age gap I lose interest. But when I heard about the age gap in this book for the first time ever, I hesitated. I really wanted to read Audrey's story so despite everything, I read it. And while the age did bother me at times I found myself forgetting about it and really enjoying this book.
I've always loved Audrey, especially in the second book so I was really excited to see what would happen. In the second book she was dating this total douche who was so bad for her and everyone was hoping she would leave him. But she swore that she loves him even if he does hurt her in bed and verbally abuse her. That really annoyed me but thankfully she finally sees the light and ditches him. She's a bit insecure and is hiding a secret that she feels makes her not good enough so I was really interested in seeing what would happen. And wow, things definitely took a turn for the best and sometimes worst.
I loved Tate from the first chapter. Yes, he's young but he's been through so much that age doesn't even matter. Hearing his story really broke my heart. I loved how he knew what he wanted and lost sight of it. He treats Audrey so well and I loved watching them learn more about each other.
Toni Aleo really knows how to write! I loved the way everything flowed and I never stopped once. I've never really paid attention to Ice Hockey but after reading this series I've found myself putting on the game and cheering on.
Even if you're not a sports person, pick this book up! It has more then enough romance, agnst, comedy and drama to make you fall in love with this series. I can't wait for the next book!
Well dayum, that was quite the read. That cliffhanger was pretty brutal but luck for me I have the second book already waiting on my kindle for me :)
Well dayum, that was quite the read. That cliffhanger was pretty brutal but luck for me I have the second book already waiting on my kindle for me :) Full review to come, but here are my thoughts on it overall:
*Loved Logan and I love him even more knowing that Molly McAdams based him off her husband! Makes me want to believe that I could find someone like that one day. <3
*His best friend Mason is freaking awesome and I really hope he gets his own book...just not with Candice.
*Candice, Rachel's best friend was very annoying to me and I hate when they put the "slutty best friend" in a book. It's annoying and it's even more annoying when said slutty friend gets with the guy best friend (Mason). Hopefully it just stays as a hookup and nothing more because I'm tried of that plot. Also, I didn't think Candice was a very good friend to Rachel and found myself thinking the only reason they are friends is because of comfort and knowing each other for so long.
*I was expecting to hate Rachel and while she did have her moments, I actually really liked her. I hate that many things could have been avoided if only she would tell people things instead of thinking she could solve it herself. especially in her case. I swear she's like the dumb girls in the horror movies who call out "who's there" when they see a dark shadow in their apartment and follow it instead of run away".

Which just makes me an even firmer believer that Elizabeth Reyes's books do in fact get better with each one.
I've always looked at Hector as the young trouble making kid but in this book we get to see how much he's matured. I loved how real he was. It surprised me just how experienced with women he was but I don't know why because Hector is HOT! He's alpha male at it's finest and I found myself jealous of Charlee on more then one account.
Charlee is unlike any character I've read. She's...strange. But it's what I loved about her. She's super shy and has been home schooled basically all her life. So socializing really isn't her thing. The only friend she has is Drew who was her neighbor and best friend her whole life. Drew convinces Charlee to go to school across the country with her and finally have the experience that she missed back at home. I loved learning about Charlee's past and I was really shocked by some of her secrets but it didn't change my view of her.
Charlee and Hector don't get together quickly and I know some people complained about it but I think it was needed. They got to know each other, be friends and really let the feelings they were feeling build up. I think it's one of the things that was different from the other books in the series. This book seemed longer too. The romance was steamy and off the charts and I think this is my favorite in the series so far.
I can't wait to read Abel's book. Now, I don't know if I'm the only but I'm really hoping Abel finds love. I just don't want to to be with Nellie. I'm not sure if that was even the plan but there's been hints and I'm just really hoping I'm wrong. It's not really about the age thing because Noah has convinced me that age shouldn't matter. But I feel like that story line has been done already. I do want Nellie to find love again, but just not with him. I actually think Abel and Drew could be an interesting couple. She's spunky and bit wild and Abel's so serious and calm; they would make of hell of a story (Please Elizabeth Reyes!! :))
Overall Hector exceeded my expectations and I know everyone will love this addition to the series. If you still haven't read this series then PLEASE do! You won't regret it!

I forgot how much I love this series!
I loved this book though it did have some things that bothered me. Erik, was a total douchebag and made me want to pull my hair out on more then one occasion. Piper was so naive and too in love with Erik and no matter what he did she just WOULDN'T LET HIM GO. It was getting kind of pathetic. I feel bad for saying that but I just hate when characters act all weak like they can't live without some guys approval.
But despite the character faults, it did not stop me from being engrossed with this book from the first chapter. I could barely put it down for more then five minutes without itching to pick it back up.

I don't really know why everyone made a big deal about his 'Daddy complex'. I was kind of nervous to read this because everyone kept going on about it and how they didn't like it but honestly it didn't really bother me. Not saying I would like to call my man daddy or anything but it just fits Knight. It's who he is and the whole point of this series is that the guys aren't perfect and have things we may not like, but love them anyway.
I've heard so much about Kristen Ashley's books and I'm slowly checking out each series and I've got to say, I think The Unfinished Hero is my favorite series by her so far! ...more
I was partly excited but mostly scared to read this book. I've heard so much about how dark and serious some of the issues in this book are and I knewI was partly excited but mostly scared to read this book. I've heard so much about how dark and serious some of the issues in this book are and I knew that it would break my heart. But I love books like this and after reading some raving reviews about it, I knew that I couldn't hold it off any longer.
Maggie is full of life. She's fun, out spoken and isn't afraid to say whatever's on her mind. Which I both loved and found annoying at times. It just annoyed me when she would ask questions that were clearly none of her business and act all nosy with Clay. It also annoyed me when she acted like she had some claim over Clay and acted like some obsessive, clingy girlfriend when they were hardly friends. But, I can't lie, I think we've all acted that way when we see a guy we like and are desperately trying to get his attention. I really liked Maggie because I felt like I could relate with her and she just has this way of making you love her even when she's in wrong.
Clay. God, every time I think of him it breaks my heart. I feel so bad for him! He's had a rough life and it seems that's never going to change. He's a mess. One minute he's happy, the next he's so angry he's punching walls. His sickness is serious and every time he fell out of one of his mood swings and realized what he did, it really made me want to cry.
Maggie may be good for Clay but he's not really good for her. Their relationship is such a mess and it made me sad because even though I wanted them to be together, I knew their relationship wasn't healthy. I didn't like the girl Maggie was becoming and it seems the more people tried to reach out, the worse it got. I loved how realistic this book was. The author didn't try to sugar coat anything and it really opened my eyes to this kind of disease. I never really knew much about it or how it can affect the people around them but after reading this book I commend people who live with it everyday.
I wasn't sure if I was going to mention this in my review but there are some editing issues. Like one minute Maggie has green eyes and then suddenly in another chapter she has blue. Or she talks about having a B minus average but then another time she says she has straight As. I don't know if it's just my copy and there weren't many typos but it confused me a bit.
The ending KILLED me! This book made me cry and I'm dying to get my hands on the second book. I just HAVE to know how Clay and Maggie's story ends. On the plus side, at least I have Rachel and Daniel's story to keep me busy until March.
Read this book! I was stupid enough to have doubts about enjoying this book and I feel so dumb for waiting this long to pick this up. Find You in the Dark is without a doubt a favorite for the year for me!
