He wrote the rules onto our skinโ€”every ink stroke tragically smeared by the lines weโ€™d crossed.

He claimed it was the only way we could be togetherโ€”the only way we wouldnโ€™t destroy our families.

But there was an exception to his rulesโ€”one he never saw coming.

All I needed was opportunity and a sunburn.

 

The girl who played by his rules is gone.

Riot Hearts by Livy North–Review

It is hard to imagine that this is Livyโ€™s debut novel. She has been able to incorporate so many feelings and emotions from beginning to almost end. Yep, it ends on a cliffy. A cliffy that left me immediately shook and questioning and creating different conspiracy theories.

There are a lot of moving pieces throughout, including who is the good guy/bad guy, who can you trust, along with what is a nineteen-year-old supposed to do now? Luckily, Livy has written some strong-willed characters. This is a good thing as they will need to be able to handle all the mystery, intrigue, suspense, sexual chemistry, drama and angst.

All I have to say is, Livy, please take pity on your readers and do not leave us hanging forever! ๐Ÿ˜‰โฃ

Playing with Fire by LJ Shen–Review

Best. Book. Hangover. Ever! I have loved everything LJ writes, because this girl CAN WRITE! With that said, everything I have read before (All Saints High, Sinners and Saints, The Kiss Thief, etc.), feel small and inconsequential compared to Playing with Fire! Sure, they all received five stars, but if that is the case, PWF should receive a million stars.

I love West, but for the usual reasons. He is grumpy, sour, bitter, an a-hole, underground fighter, who can โ€˜drop panties wherever he walksโ€™ hot. A popular bad boy, who is reckless, fearless, has a death wish and is broken. Needless to say, he is a fantastic male Hero with baggage to boot.

The star, though, of this whole book is Grace. I am madly and deeply in love with her. She is your unconventional, flawed modern heroine. She is strong, feisty, insecure, loaded with self-esteem issues (yes, she can be strong and still lack confidence), loyal, lovable, and the source of local fodder. She is a fighter with the true heart of a phoenix. Grace is inspirational and a character to look up to.

Leigh has completely outdone herself. Playing with Fire is raw, emotional, gritty, gripping, and above all, a love story for the ages. A love story that is raw, slowly simmering from friendship to more. If you want angst, this is for you. If you want, drama, this is for you. Above all, if you want an emotionally driven, no holds barred, self-loving book, this is definitely for you. Playing with Fire is consuming, so consuming, that I did not even realize I was crying through most of it.

“The worst day of your life gave me the best version of you.”

I do not think I could ever write how incredible this book is and still do it justice. Simply put, it is magnificent. I was unprepared for the trek that I was taken on, but lord knows, that I will willingly go through it all over again. If you only read ONE book this year, Playing with Fire is that book. Without a shadow of doubt, this book is most definitely in my best of 2020 books.

What’s Next of Me by Kristen Granata–Review

I had never heard of Kristen Granata, but through fellow ACRโ€™ers I was told that โ€˜you NEED to read this bookโ€™. Since there was nothing, but praise given I decided to give this book a chance and I was so extremely happy that I did. What starts out as a โ€˜Real Housewives of Orange Countyโ€™ episode, soon morphed into an episode of SVU. Since meeting Paul in college nine years ago, Callie has had to work to make her marriage work. Sure, Paul and Callie have had some massive issues thrown their way forcing them to adapt and grow together or fail.

“When someone pushes you away, you need to find the strength to hold on tighter.”

I sat on writing this release for too long, because I was so overwhelmed with situations, the twists and turns that they went through, along with some massive speed bumps or detours to Cole and Callieโ€™s storyline. Whatโ€™s Left of Me was ridiculously incredible and amazing. It is heart and gut-wrenching, super emotional (have tissue ready), has themes of knowing your self-worth along with discovery, forgiveness, and above all, love. Honestly as I read, I had this feeling that Kristen was going to rip the rug out from underneath me and I only had seconds to get my life in order. She had me completely connected and invested to characters/situations.

Callie. I love Callie. Despite going through issues with her husband, she still had an inner fire that was temporarily dimmed, not wanting to rock the boat/outward appearances of โ€˜everythingโ€™s fineโ€™. Now, in doing this, she started to develop anxiety/panic attacks. The following is a list to remind Callie of everything happy/fortunate to have (giving to her by her therapist).

โ€œMaverick, California King Bed, Walk-in closet, Dream Kitchen,

Yard with a pool, Mercedesโ€

Cole is a giant teddy bear with layers of self-hate, a heart encrusted within concrete, and a cape of tragedy that gets heavier and heavier as days go by. Despite his gruffness, anguish, and growly nature, I really liked Cole. Personally, you can feel the hate he has to himself, but what he did not expect was the blonde bombshell from across the street, thinking he was the landscaper. From this moment on, life was changing for him and he was unsure if he liked it.

“It’s clear now; I lost control the second she walked into Josie’s backyard.”

Count me in as a fan, Kristen. I loved everything that this book entails. She tackled some heavy topics in a safe way as to not offend anyone. There is one thing that I still feel little unanswered, so it is 4.5 stars. Otherwise, Whatโ€™s Left of Me would be a solid 5.0+.

“I’m finally the person I want to be. I say what I feel, I do what makes me happy, and I’m surrounded by loving and supportive people. I no longer live in fear. I’m free.”
