MY REVIEW

Monsters are real.

When I was five years old, I watched my mother take her last breathโ€”a breath three monsters stole from her.

I never chose this life. My father says itโ€™s my birthright, but all I see is a curse. Itโ€™s because of the Kelly name my mum was slain by the Doylesโ€”our enemies in Dublin, the fellas livinโ€™ on borrowed time.

All of Belfast fears my family, especially me. Iโ€™m Puck Kelly, otherwise known as Punky; the lad ye donโ€™t want to double cross. 

I donโ€™t do feelings or emotions. I never haveโ€ฆuntil she walks into my world.

Babydoll is a liar and a thief, but I canโ€™t stay away. We both thrive in the darkness because thatโ€™s where our demons can play.

No word af a lie, sixteen years later, those monsters still haunt my dreams. But every monster is scared of somethinโ€™โ€ฆand that somethinโ€™ is me.

No more hiding in the shadows because Iโ€™m huntinโ€™ youse.

Run, wee monsters, run.

THE RELATIONSHIP PACT by Adriana Locke

Release Date: December 17th

Synopsis

How hard can it be?

That was the question rolling around Larissa Masonโ€™s mind just before she asked Hollis Hudson to be her fake boyfriend.

It was only supposed to be for five minutes, after all.

Granted, that was also before she felt his hand on the small of her back as he charmed the heck out of her family.

She hadnโ€™t heard his laugh yet either. 

And it was definitely before she saw the football god shirtless. Otherwise, she wouldโ€™ve had an idea of just how hard some things could be.

It turns out that pretending to be in love with a crazily handsome, somewhat enigmatic, and absolutely unforgettable tight end (that has an amazing tight end) is easy.

Reminding herself that just because opposites attract doesnโ€™t mean theyโ€™re forever is much harder.

What they have isnโ€™t loveโ€”itโ€™s a relationship pact. Right?

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.

couple stars GIF

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.

fire dragon GIF

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.
