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.

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.”

Falling for Dr. Knight–Review

Falling for Dr. Knight is so apropos as a title, because that is what you will do by the end of the book. Preston Knight is your Knight in shining armor. Preston fits in well with some other famous doctors. Do you remember Dr. Dreamy or Dr. McSteamy? Well now we have Dr. Charming/Dr. Sexy/Dr. Suave (take your pick). A man that is so loving, suave, mesmerizing, grounded and loves kids, which is a good thing because he is a pediatric doctor. So, picture this, a handsome and amazing guy holding a newborn to his chest. Do you not hear your ovaries yelling and begging, โ€œPlease! Me next! Pick Me, Pick Meโ€! Yep, that is the Dr. Knight effect.

When Preston and Cress first met there was an instant spark and a bubbling of chemistry. This spark continued to grow and ultimately formed a strong cohesive bond. Not only between Cress and Preston, but also including Lexi. This group felt and acted like a true family unit.

Cress is a single mother to Alexis. She is blessed to have help from her mother, Momma Cress, and her best friend, Ave. Recently she has started to get help from Dr. Charming which shocks her that he is so willing to help.

Preston and Cress are the couple that you want to mark as #CoupleGoals. They are so incredibly cute together and Preston has such a unique and sweet way to say goodnight/goodbye. He is just adorable with Lexi, but truthfully, he is amazing with all the โ€˜Cressโ€™ women. Charming, hot, slightly dorky, hot, mesmerizing, and hot!! Wait, did I tell you how hot he was??๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Now Cressโ€™ life has not always been sunshine and roses. She has had a lot darkness, doom, and gloom. Thoughts of not having any better than what she had after finding out she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she has some baggage from her past in the form of her baby daddy, Creed. All I am going to say is that Creed is something else.

I adored this book. I had been reading a slew of dark romances and Falling for Dr. Knight was a nice palette cleanser. I highly recommend reading Dr. Knight!!

 

Prince of Hearts by LA Cotton–New Release

 

Title: Prince of Hearts
Series: Verona Legacy #1
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 2, 2020

My Review

Blurb
Arianna Capizola is her fatherโ€™s daughter.
Humble. Hardworking. Honest.
Sheโ€™d rather spend her days helping at the local shelter
than brushing shoulders with her vain and entitled classmates.
Niccolรฒ Marchetti is his fatherโ€™s son.
Dark. Dangerous. Deceitful.
Heโ€™d rather spend his days getting bloody in the ring than
attending class and keeping up pretences.
When their paths cross at Montague University neither of
them are willing to drop the walls theyโ€™ve spent so long building. But he canโ€™t
resist the girl with stars in her eyes, and she canโ€™t forget the guy who saved
her that night.
Thereโ€™s only one catch.
Nicco isnโ€™t Arianneโ€™s knight-in-shining armor, heโ€™s the son
of her fatherโ€™s greatest enemy.
He is the enemy.
And their families are at war.
**Prince of Hearts is the first book in Nicco and Ariโ€™s
duet. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book
is recommended for readers 18+

Excerpt
โ€œItโ€™s a
beautiful night,โ€ I said from the shadows.ย 
โ€œNicco?โ€
She glanced around, searching for me. When her eyes landed on me standing by
the corner of the building, she stood up. โ€œWhat do you want?โ€
โ€œAhh,
Bambolina.โ€ I let out a weary sigh. โ€œThat is a loaded question.โ€
โ€œHumor me.โ€
Lina took a step closer. The moonlight danced off the soft features of her
face.
Jesus, she
was so fucking beautiful.
โ€œI want to
kiss you.โ€ I inched toward her, unable to resist the magnetic pull I felt
whenever I was around her. โ€œI want to finish what we started earlier. I want to
feel you beneath me, hear you cry my name.โ€
I want
to make you mine.
โ€œYou
couldnโ€™t get away from me fast enough earlier.โ€ Her confused gaze cut me like a
thousand tiny blades over my skin.ย 
โ€œItโ€™s not
what you think,โ€ I said, moving closer still. Lina mirrored my movements until
we were standing in front of each other.
Until she
was close enough to touch.
โ€œWhatโ€™s
happening to us, Nicco?โ€ she whispered. โ€œWhy do I feel like this?โ€
โ€œWhat do
you feel like?โ€ I brushed the hair off her neck. She had a thick hoodie pulled
over her body, but I was still able to stroke the skin beneath her ear. Linaโ€™s
eyes drifted closed as she inhaled a shaky breath.ย 
โ€œI look for
you when youโ€™re not there. I feel you when youโ€™re close. I canโ€™t get you out of
my head.โ€ Her eyes opened again, fixing on mine. She smiled and it was like a bolt
of lightning to my heart.
This girl.
This
innocent sweet girl was ruining me.ย

Author Bio
Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult
novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive
stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.
Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being
a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her
spare time (and when sheโ€™s not camped out in front of the laptop) youโ€™ll most
likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

Bona Fide (Illusive duet, book 2) by Hazel Grace–Review

BFBanner

I have read all of Hazel Graceโ€™s books, starting with Arranged (Array Series 1) and have seen the progression of her writing increase with each book. This writing is completely at its best in the Illusive duet.

Catfish, book 1, knocked me off my seat onto my โ€˜bassโ€™๐Ÿ˜‰. I was sucked in from the word Prologue. Wade has been my man since that first paragraph (sorry Dee. You get him first, but I also lay claim to him๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚). Catfish was one heck of a ride, that I was not ready for, but COMPLETELY loved!

So, Bona Fide comes out and I thought, โ€˜what is the cliffhanger queen going to do to us nowโ€™? Simple answer, a lot!! If you were looking for an easy wrap up with a cute little bow, go someplace else. You will not find that here. Now, it does not mean that there may/may not be a HEA involved, that is for you to find out. It just means in either scenario, HEA or no HEA, you will be taken on a ride.

Bona Fide continues with the ever-tumultuous Reagan and Wade. Reagan is spicy, hot, not a pushover, can take care of herself and confident. She is full of witty comebacks, which had me snickering throughout the book. This does not mean that there was not angst and drama going on. At times, I felt like I needed to cut through it with a knife.
Wade has a whole other journey going on, his political journey and how to not become just another politician. When you think of the word politician, what are some things you think of? Confident, charming, relatable, goal-oriented, uncomplicated, and fearless come to mind? What about negative characteristics or peopleโ€™s perception of them? Corrupt, dishonest, unethical, greedy, selfish, and bad judgment, to name a few! I will not give away what Wade does or who he is, but I will say, you really begin to feel the amount of pressure that is on his shoulders and how he tries to maintain the man beneath the political shroud. There are many things going on with Wade, but overall, you can feel how incredible of a MC he is. It truly is hard not to fall in love with him.

Hazel Grace is blossoming into an incredible author. Catfish/Bona Fide is evidence of that. There are massive amounts of angst, boat loads of drama, sprinkled with some comedic laughs and bucket loads full of hot, sexy, and romantic times. I HIGHLY recommend this series!!
