Just Like Heaven by Trilina Pucci–Review

Trilina has a knack for writing insanely well thought out and completely desirable male leads. These men range from businessmen to mafia to even rowers but NEVER has one of these Heroes lived up to all that is Calder Wolfe. Calderโ€ฆtough, bada@@, sensitive, alpha, and loyal. He is the new gold standard in leading men.

Just Like Heaven is a modern-day re-telling of Romeo and Juliet with Calder Wolfe and Sutton Prescott in those roles. Theoretically, these two should have never met. Their stories should never have even crossed each otherโ€™s path, but when two star-crossed lovers are meant to be, there is nothing you can do to stop fate.

โ€œI would do anything for love. Anything for someone to love me so much theyโ€™d burn the world down.โ€

I fear by saying, THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING, will not do it justice, but seriously, it is everything wrapped up in a tidy little romance book. Angsty, evocative, heart-wrenching, captivating, breath-taking and passionate is just the beginning of describing Calder and Suttonโ€™s story.

Trilina Pucci is hands down making her name in the romance world with stunning books such as Just Like Heaven. Beware this book is a duet and ends with a cliffy (and what a cliffy it is). I’m going to go out on a ledge and say, Calder and Sutton, have replaced Leonardo and Claire as the best Romeo & Juliet!

โ€œThank you for the stars.โ€ (Sutton)

โ€œTheyโ€™re almost as pretty as you.โ€ (Calder)

โ€œHow would you even know? You havenโ€™t looked at them yet.โ€ (Sutton)

โ€˜Why would I need to look? When to me, you look just like heaven.โ€ (Calder)

Give Me A Reason by A.L. Jackson–Review

So, what do we have when looking under the cover of Give Me A Reason?

  • Enemies to Lovers
  • Single Dad
  • MC
  • Forbidden Boss
  • Pasts that never die

I was immediate to say โ€˜yes, pleaseโ€™ at the site of a single dad and MC read. All the other stuff was a bonus, a very good bonus. I adore Ms. Jacksonโ€™s lilting writing style. To a former musician/percussionist, this cadence like reading helped to progress the storyline along. Each word, each phrase felt purposely placed which kept this plotline moving. This allowed me as the reader to get sucked in. I felt like I was on a train that kept increasing speed the further along I went.

As mentioned earlier, a part of this book is on the single dad aspect. Trent Lawson has a five-year-old son, Gage, who is his ray of sunshine and โ€œone good thingโ€ in his life. As a secondary character Gage is the best. I could eat up all the adorableness that exuded from Gage.

โ€œHe was dressed in jeans, a short-sleeved button up, and his checkered Vans. Looking like the budding bada** that he was.โ€

Eden Jasmine Murphy appears to be prim, proper, innocent looking. She has a heart the size of Texas and teaches both elementary private school and dance. The only family she has is her father, who happens to be the pastor where Eden works. The thing about Eden is donโ€™t let the external fool you. She may be innocent looking, but when needed, she has the ability to put one in their place.

โ€œGirls like you donโ€™t belong in a place like this. Now go home and lock your door behind you before you regret walking through my door.โ€

Trent and Eden are nothing short of magical, yet unmagical at the same time. Trent has many demons within him and nipping at his heels, yet when heโ€™s around Eden heโ€™s optimistic. Eden is fighting her own battles, but things seem a little bit brighter with Trent by her side.

What happens when light meets dark? When Eden and Trent cross paths in different settings? I can tell you, Give Me A Reason is what happens. The storyline, plotline, and pacing were well checked and consistently moving. Her characters and their development were hilarious, sexy, scared, and romantical. As the title implies, itโ€™s simply saying, Give Me A Reason why not to read this book.

โ€œOne love. One Loyalty. One reason.โ€

The Bonds We Break by Becca Steele–Review

Becca Steele has done it again. The Four, along with their significant others, made this book. A part of that group is Cassius and Jessa. Their storyline is emotional, temperamental, loving, and downright steamy, so donโ€™t forget your fan! The Bonds We Break is full of everything. Mystery, intrigue, fear, anxiety, tenuous love to unbreakable bonds. A five-star read!!

As much as we know that Cass is the true lead in this book, I believe we need to take a step back and look at Jessa. If you have read the previous books, you know what Iโ€™m talking about. If not, thatโ€™s ok, here is your little cheat sheet on Jessa De Witt.

โ€œI am Jessa De Witt, the girl that everyone wanted to be.โ€

Jessa has only ever known what itโ€™s like to be a Queen B. First at Alstone High and then Alstone College. She wants to be top dog. To have everyone want to be her and will do what she can to maintain this status. Prior to Winter (Cadeโ€™s girlfriend), Cassius and Cade, consecutively, had one-night stands with her with no commitment involved, which worked for them at that time. Due to a miscommunication, Jessa is kidnapped (in place of Winter) and goes through some traumatizing experiences. Cassius is one of her rescuers from this horrifying situation. Flash to the present, Jessa is continuing to have some personal issues and when she needs help, the one person she can contact is Cassius.

Cass is just one of the guys that stood out to me from the beginning. Granted, I could safely say that statement about all the guys, but Cass is someone special. His character is fun, flirty, the โ€˜playboyโ€™ of the group and the joker to lighten the situation/atmosphere. The thing is this is not all that Cassius Drummond is. It is extremely gratifying as a reader to get to see his layers being peeled back to see him, the real Cassius. Due to Jessaโ€™s recent flare up of nightmares and anxiety over past circumstances, Cassius is rising to the Protector mode. A mode that suits him well. He will not let anyone hurt her again.

โ€œJessa, Iโ€™m not going anywhere, okay? Youโ€™re safe now. Safe with me.โ€

So, how do you take a hated enemy into a loved and accepted part of โ€˜The Fourโ€™ family? Simple, have Becca Steele write the story. The Evolution that Cassius and Jessa have gone through is magical and inspiring. The same can be said about Jessa and the rest of โ€˜The Fourโ€™ family. Cassius and Jessa are steamy, pure fire together, yet caring and affectionate. Jessa is the perfect counterpart to Cass.

โ€œYouโ€™re important to Cass, and that means that youโ€™re important to the rest of us.โ€

I can safely say that Jessa De Witt pleasantly surprised me. Her priorities shifted and a case of growing, maturing, and evolving into the strong and confident, non-judgmental, values friendships, and truly learn how to love has taken place. Jessa De Witt is a true reason to not judge a book by itโ€™s cover.
