I’m just a girl, standing here, falling in love with my best friend’s older brother.

Totally kidding. I’ve always been in love with Austin Burathon.

Effortlessly cool. Wears nail polish. Flirts with everyone. When he rescues me in the middle of the night, I see a side of his life that I never knew about.

I thought he had what I didn’t.

Perfect homelife. Supportive parents. And

I’m just a girl, standing here, falling in love with my best friend’s older brother.

Totally kidding. I’ve always been in love with Austin Burathon.

Effortlessly cool. Wears nail polish. Flirts with everyone. When he rescues me in the middle of the night, I see a side of his life that I never knew about.

I thought he had what I didn’t.

Perfect homelife. Supportive parents. And he does, but he’s fighting a war in his apartment.

Austin’s ex-boyfriend, Endgame, takes gaslighting seriously and th

He's a social media influencer (a pretty popular one at that) who happens to wear skirts and nail polish on occasion. He is also fresh from a break up. She is his sisters best friend who he has known most of her life. She's also had a crush on him for just as long. When she needs someone to come get her out of a bad situation, he is the only one she can call. Long story short, they end up fake dating, though she's living it like its real. Too bad he wasn't as well. Of course this story isn't jus ...more

I loved Austin from meeting him in Gaze and Pixie's book to getting a little more of him in Ruffian and Teddy's book, I loved him.

I knew his story would be good considering who we are talking about, I mean this man wears and does whatever he wants and has become almost famous for it, but I had NO IDEA! I was not ready for how much this story would sit with me. I have been thinking about it for days now trying to decide how to do it justice with a review.

Austin is his own person and doesn't car

Wow! What an emotion packed read! The characters were everything and more. Dramatic, funny, strong willed, crazy, romantic, loyal, dangerous. Austin knows who he is and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He wears nail polish, eyeliner, skirts, whatever he feels like. He makes his living running social media campaigns and ex elks at it. His group of friends are as eclectic and over the top as he is and are many. Taylor is his sisters best friend and has lived him her whole life. She smelt mist of h ...more

Wow, what a ride this book was. Cruel Pinkj by D. Ananastasia is the third book in the Drowning in Stars Series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone.
The author again delivers a masterpiece, a read of its finest, unptdownable, utterly addicting.
Taylor is a freshman at college. She was waiting for leaving her home for a long time. And now that its really happened not everything is sunshine and roses. Getting help from Austin is her saving grace. Austin is her best friends older brother. They a

Fake relationship/bestfriend’s brother….omg this book was great! Austin’s character was so uniquely special. It was hard not to fall deeply in love with him. Austin’s only fault was his ex-boyfriend Endgame. That was just a toxic relationship that he couldn’t let go. No matter what Endgame did to Austin, he just kept pulling him back in. That is until Taylor needed some rescuing of her own from her horrible roommate. Austin stepped up and took her under his wing. Letting Endgame believe Taylor w ...more

Your heart will never be the same, I laughed, sighed, smiled & cried! This story will Rock your world. I loved
Taylor & Austin’s story hard.
When Taylor called the only person she knew who was close by to help her escape the madness caused by her psycho roommate, she could of never imagined what the universe had set in motion for her and Austin. Austin is her best friend Teddie older brother & along with Peaches & the rest of the world Taylor had the biggest crush/ he was always their ride to the

This book was perfect. I was honored to receive a ARC, I was one of the lucky ones. First I need to say Austin is everything and everyone needs an Austin in their life. I wish I did. I experienced every emotion reading this book. It was amazing! Taylor seems so strong with she deals with and I am in awe. Everyone we love is back in Cruel Pink. I didn’t write much about the actual story as I didn’t want to have any spoilers. That being said read this book you won’t be sorry. Absolutely perfect bo ...more

yes I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this amazing book. I will tell you I could not put this story down, I could not stop reading this well written rollercoaster of a book. The characters are amazing! Austin and Taylor are the definition of Star crossed lovers. She has loved him from afar forever. He is off limits, he is her best friend's brother after all. You can not help but to fall in love with these two and their twisting story of survival. Read this you will not be sorry. ...more

I loved Cruel Pink. From the opening chapter to the last page, it is sweet, heartfelt, and very entertaining. Austin is one of those rare characters that you can't pigeon hole, and you shouldn't want to. And Taylor is a breath of fresh air after reading so many books with a whiney, weak heroine. If you are in the mood for a contemporary, new adult romance, with plenty of angst, humor, and just enough sugar to make you swoon, Cruel Pink is the perfect book to satisfy! 5 Dazzling Stars! ...more

Wow! Austin and Taylor are beyond perfect. She has always loved him and she was always his little sisters best friend. They were exactly what each other needed at the right time. I enjoyed how accurate a toxic relationship is depicted in this story. It made it so much more real to me. This was my first read from Debra Anastasia and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can’t wait to read the others in the series!

I was lucky to win an ARC of this book. Loved this story. Lost of twists. Taylor loves Austin unconditionally & doesn’t judge. She accepts all his differences. They both have great friends that are there for them, no matter what. You’ll just have to read it & find out for yourselves what a great book it is.

Finally, we get Austin’s book! I loved Austen and Taylor! Taylor is Teddi’s, Austin’s little sister, friend. This story has it all—age gap, crush on a friend’s older brother, fake dating, real dating, and a jealous ex. The path to true love is sometimes a tough one! Read this book—you will not be sorry! 5 stars

Monday Blue

Strings of fairy lights make horrible extension cords for personal pleasure devices. I found out the hard way when I started a fire with my excessive use of a high-powered massager. But to be fair, electricity has always been out to get me. Okay, maybe we’re more like frenemies. My flatiron depends on it, but I also fear the zap it sends through me on an unwelcome, regular basi
