Blurb (from Goodreads):

Sex changes everything.

And love can turn into an enemy…

Mitch Abrams, the bassist for the popular rock band Generation Rejects, has been in love with Gracie Cook for years. But Gracie, a complicated girl with a lot of baggage, was too blind to see how she felt about the man who had always stood by her.

Until one night of passion brought them closer than they had ever been before.

Feeling off balance and out of control, Gracie does the only thing a girl with self-destructive tendencies can do: end things with Mitch before they can really begin.

So Mitch moves on. With his band, his friends, and a new girlfriend.

Yet he can’t seem to forget about the girl who threw his heart away.

Gracie, who is still struggling to build a life after crashing to the bottom, finds it hard to forget about her one night with Mitch. And even as she tries to convince herself it was only sex, her heart knows differently.

But life is full of chances and desperate moments. And when Mitch and Gracie are thrown back into each other’s lives, will they seize at the opportunity to do things right?

Or will the rock star and the less than ordinary girl crash and burn?

OH MY FEELS after reading this book! I fell in love with it. I liked the plot and I absolutely loved the characters. The emotions were so raw, the feelings felt so realistic, argh… I became an emotional mess while reading this. Everything was portrayed so beautifully, one can’t help but fall in love with this book. Desperate Chances is the last book in the Bap Rep series but it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the other books in this series and I didn’t have any problem while reading this book but after finishing it, I’m desperate to read the other books in this series as well. I’m definitely going to grab them soon, hopefully.

The story is told in the alternate POVs of the two main characters- Mitch and Gracie which helped us to understand their perspective better. The story revolves around the life of Gracie who is a recovering alcoholic. During that time she slept with her best friend, Mitch. While Mitch wanted more from her, she freaked out and ruined all her chances with him. When she realises she has the same feelings for Mitch, it was already too late, he has moved on with a girlfriend. She stops herself everytime from confessing her feelings because she feels he’s happy with his life. But life has different plans for them, will they be able to be remain the way they used to be or will their friendship and second chance be destroyed forever?

The plot was a bit clichéd but I loved the way the author executed it here. After they slept together and she ran away, Gracie avoided her best to come to face to face with each other. But finally she is forced to stop all the excuses and meet him and it is pretty clear from the first that their chemistry is undeniable and I loved how the angst was build up throughout the story. Everybody knew they were perfect for each other but it took such a long time for these two hard headed people to come together. I loved the friendship aspect of this story. Mitch’s friends or band members and Gracie’s friends were literally awsome. Their friendship was so beautiful, they all had each other and they were practically family.

The characters were my favourite part of this story. I loved every single one of them, they were different and had their own unique personalities. Gracie was a great character. There wasn’t much I could relate to but that didn’t stop me from loving her. She was headstrong, stubborn and caring. She knew she did a lot of mistakes for which she was genuinely sorry and she didn’t want to repeat them again. It took her some time but she finally fought back for the second chance and I loved it. Mitch, well I loved him, he was a great character as well. He was heartbroken after Gracie abruptly left him and he went for a rebound. Clearly it was not going to work, everybody could see it clearly except him. I was sooo happy when he finally came back to his senses.

All the other characters were pretty much awsome as well. Gracie’s friends, Vivian, Maysie and Riley were so good. They were beside her all the time and they did their best to knock some common sense into her. And so did Mitch’s friends. I loved Vivian the most, she was wild and funny. Their bond was so beautiful and I loved how they were there for each other every single time.

The writing was beautiful and easy to read. It was comfortable and smooth. I was completely immersed into the story from the very first page, it was pretty addicting. I couldn’t stop reading it and finished it at one go. The pace was even throughout the story, just how I like it, it was neither too fast nor too slow.

Overall, I loved Desperate Chances. The plot was a bit clichéd but it was executed very well. The characters were the most awsome part of this story, I fell in love with every one of them. I loved the chemistry and romance between Mitch and Gracie. The writing style was smooth and beautiful and the pace was even throughout the book. This book had everything I love in New-Adult books and I’m definitely going to check out the other books by this author, specially the rest of the books in this series. I can’t wait to read them all.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Time Traveler. Messenger. Beloved. Spy.

“I was a Messenger: I kept the memory of all our encounters, our lives, like a locket that brushes the skin and bones covering my heart. But Samuel was a Healer: he didn’t time travel. His kind lived, died, re-incarnated, and he didn’t retain memories from his past lives. Every year I landed in required starting our relationship over: from ashes, from scrap… Every place I journeyed had beauty as well as darkness; all my time-travels were bittersweet.”
-Madeline.

Madeline’s a Messenger: time traveling across lifetimes and delivering messages that could change one life or many. When she discovers that her true love, Samuel, is alive in present day, but doesn’t remember her from their past, she journeys to a deadly royal conflict in medieval Portugal hoping to rekindle his memory. Mortal assassins as well as dark-souled time travelers seek to kill her. Will Madeline and Samuel be together again in life—or only in death?

I was very exited to start this book. I immediately started reading this after I finished book 1, The Messenger this evening. You can find my review for The Messenger here. The way it ended in a cliffhanger, I couldn’t wait to devour The Assassin. It definitely led up to the expectations. The story was kind of the same yet a lot different. The plot was more intriguing, the characters were different and great and the pace was fast which I enjoyed very much. Overall, I loved this book.

Summary-

Madeline has returned to her own century and she finally decides to let go of her love for Samuel until she spots him, flesh and blood, in the train station. When they meet, she realises he doesn’t remember her. And then she meets Ryan, the guy sent to train her to be a Messenger. At first she is reluctant but when he tells her there’s a way Samuel can remember her and they can be together in this lifetime, she wholeheartedly agrees and she embarks on a new adventure in medieval Portugal. But things are more trickier this time as she realises danger lurks in the shadows and she has to be careful as ever.

Plot-

I really enjoyed the plot. It was intriguing and intersting as ever. This time Madeline ended up as a gypsy woman named Nadja in medieval Portugal during the reign of King Afonso IV in Coimbra. The author took the beautiful yet heartbreaking tale of Prince Pedro and Inez de Castro and spinned it into her own way. It was really heartbreaking to see the way they ended up. Nonetheless I enjoyed the culture and grandeur of that time, I also enjoyed the gypsy culture. The romance was different this time because Samuel was not the same guy we met in book 1 but nonetheless I loved it. There was more action than the previous book which I definitely enjoyed. And I liked the mystery surrounding the message that Madeline had to deliver. Everything was executed perfectly.

Characters-

There were so many new characters introduced in this book, I ended up loving most of them. Madeline was the same old but she did mature. She was stronger and compassionate and was easily relatable. She fiercely tried to protect the ones she loved, I loved her loyalty towards her friends and everybody she cared for. I loved her inner monologues more this time, they were pretty hilarious and funny! Samuel was different this time, he was a haughty nobleman. It took a long time for him to come out of his shell before we glimpsed the Samuel that Madeline had actually fallen in love with. He cared for her, just in a different way. In the previous book, he knew they couldn’t be together because of their races and it was sort of again the same thing again, but he didn’t resist earlier but this time he did. So I did feel angry towards him but thankfully he came back to his senses and I loved him once again.

I loved the side characters, they were pretty unique. I definitely love this, the author manages to create a set of memorable side characters everytime. I hope to see more awsome people in the next books. Among them I loved Miri, she was Madeline’s gypsy friend, she was really nice and caring and pretty sweet. And I loved her best friends as usual, they were pretty awsome.

Writing style-

The writing was simple and beautiful. It was pretty easy to read and I breezed through the book in one sitting. I enjoyed how the dialogues flowed out and how everything was executed. The pace was pretty fast and even throughout the book. I definitely enjoyed the writing in this book, it was pretty addicting.

Overall-

The Assassin was a book that I throughly enjoyed, it was intriguing from the very start and I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the book. The plot was intersting and the twists were enjoyable as well as surprising. The characters were different and unique and I loved them. The writing was smooth and beautiful and the pace was fast and I enjoyed the thrill ride very much. This book also in ended in a cliffhanger, seriously this is torture but thankfully it ended in somewhat of a peaceful note but nonetheless I have to wait impatiently till the next book comes out. I can’t wait to embark a new adventure with Madeline!

PicsArt_1433969528805

This book was seriously freaking good! I enjoyed it so much. After reading a few reviews I was a bit hesitant but it wouldn’t have been fair to the book so I decided to give it a try nonetheless. Also, I’m not much into historical fiction but this book really changed my opinion. And boy, I just loved the ride! The plot was intriguing and the characters were pretty great. It was pretty fast paced and I flew through the book, there was not a single dull moment and it was throughly entertaining.

Summary-

Madeline is a normal girl, atleast she thought so before she finds herself in 1675 during the war between King Philip and the colonizers. At first she thinks she is having a nightmare until the truth sinks in, that she has actually time travelled. There she finds everybody calling her Abigail. Only two people believe her that she is not Abigail but Madeline- Samuel and an older woman named Angeni. She learns from them that she is a Messenger who can travel through time and help pass messages, even help change people’s lives. She slowly falls in love with Samuel, her soul mate. Things begin to fall in place until disaster strikes and they have to run for their lives. Everything takes a drastic turn and Madeline has to take a painful decesion- either she has to let go of Samuel or save her life.

Plot-

The plot was intriguing. I loved the concept of the messenger. Though I have to admit, at times it was a bit confusing and I had to read a few portions again and again to clear it. Madeline finds out that she is a Messenger but she is still naive and vulnerable and she needs training to improve. I liked seeing how she coped up with things and discovered herself. I loved the mystery surrounding her mother and I loved the plot twist, when it was revealed I was genuinely surprised. I also loved the seeing the different culture of that time, the author managed to capture the essence and potray it beautifully. I liked the soul mate thing, it added an intersting twist to the story and their romance which was developed slowly which I definitely liked though I wanted a bit more depth and passion. I simply loved everything, the action and the chasing was pretty good and I was satisfied how everything was executed.

Characters-

The characters were diverse and pretty great. I really liked every one of them. Madeline (I love this name!) was an awsome character, she was sweet, caring, honest and compassionate. I mostly liked her inner monologues, they were fun to read and added humour to the story. She didn’t want to believe that she has travelled through time but when she finally accepted it, she handled it maturely. She was a pretty relatable character. I loved how she fiercely wanted to protect Angeni when they captured her for a crime she didn’t commit. I liked Samuel very much. He was a bit mysterious, loyal and caring. I liked how he believed Madeline’s true story at the first go. They both knew their relationship wouldn’t be accepted in the society but they couldn’t help but fall for each other. I really liked their relationship.

“He smiled, leaned his head down, and cradled my face in his rough palms. He pulled me to him and said, ‘Madeline. I do not care where you are from—the future, the past, a star in the sky. I will love you here, now. I do not care what people think. I will love you in the past. I will love you in the future. I will love you, forever, Madeline.’ And he kissed me.”

-Madeline.

I loved the side characters as well. Elizabeth, Abigail’s cousin was a great character. She was sweet and cared genuinely for Madeline even though she was different from the previous Abigail she had known. And I definitely loved Angeni, she had this motherly aura, you can’t help but love her. I felt so sad when Madeline helplessly tried to save her but couldn’t. I also liked Madeline’s two best friends, Chaka and Aaron. I hope to see more of them in the next book.

Writing style-

I enjoyed the writing of The Messenger. It was simple and easy to read. I easily breezed through this book and finished it in two sittings. I would have finished it early but it was already passed 3 am last night so I had to close the book though I didn’t want to. It was pretty intersting and addicting. The pace was pretty fast and I loved it. I raced through the book and couldn’t wait to learn what happened next.

Overall-

The Messenger was a book which I loved very much. I enjoyed the concept of it. The plot was intriguing but a bit confusing at times. The characters were pretty great and diverse and I fell in love with them. I loved the romance though I wanted a bit more depth and passion. The writing was simple and smooth and the pace was pretty fast and I enjoyed it throughly. This book was pretty interesting from the start and the way it ended, with that cliffhanger, I would have died if I didn’t have the second book with me right now. So I’m gonna stop talking now and start the next book in this series.

Recommend it?

Definitely yes if you like time travel stories and historical fiction, even if you don’t you should give it a try.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Terrified of the contamination and the creatures it has created, humanity hides behind The Wall. No one knows what lies beyond the wasteland. Maya has never thought much about what might still be out there, lurking in the forgotten places. But when she’s thrust into the unknown, she is forced to question everything she has ever been told. Not everyone outside died, some of them became something… else. As her heart is torn in two, every choice she makes is harder than the last. What she discovers will change her forever. She knows she will probably die, but Maya has seen enough of death and she won’t let it have her without a fight.


PicsArt_1433969528805

I really liked this book. It was exiting and a thrilling adventure. I loved the plot, the characters and all the other elements that this book offered. When I read the blurb, I really wanted to read it and when the opportunity to read an ARC was given, I snatched the opportunity. I’m really glad I did so because this book was really enjoyable.

Summary-

Maya is a resident of the new world, i.e. the world inside the wall. She has never known anything about the outside world nor she has questioned anything about of it. After an incident in a test mission, she and her best friend, Taylor are sentenced to serve in the SubWar for a time being. It is the city’s prison in a protected barrier outside the wall where people usually fight and kill each other until their time is up there. They are sent as messengers but the task is as dangerous as fighting. After a near to death experience where Taylor becomes unconscious because a bullet grazed his skin, they are saved by a guy named Coal who came from outside the wall. Forced by the situation, they flee from the SubWar guided by Coal. What Maya discovers outside the wall stuns her and she knows nothing is going to be the same ever again.

Plot-

The plot was really good. It was thrilling and exiting and I loved the world building. In this world, all the people live inside the wall after an epidemic took place. The outside world was not fit for living anymore, so the wall was built. Every action of the people were monitered and judged every second. It was intersting to learn about the condition of the people inside the wall, according to the work they did, the people were given different levels to live in a building. The concept of the SubWar was most intriguing. All the dwellers or the people who committed any kind of crime were put there where they had to fight one another for survival. I definitely enjoyed the action throughout the book and the plot twist was surprising as well.

The concept of the world outside the wall was intriguing as well. There were still people living there. There was a big reason why all of it happened and it’s not hard to guess, it was because of the people who wanted power and control. Though it’s only one of the reason and there’s another major reason behind it as well. I’m not going to tell that, you have to read it to find out. Due to the epidemic, the world changed. Plants grew bigger, the animals grew intelligent and the people who were affected turned savage and inhuman. Those people were known as creepers, they were vile and deadly. Honestly, I imagined them to be sort of zombies, they were pretty gross and dangerous.

Characters-

I liked all the characters in this book, they were pretty nice and relatable. Maya is a nice character, she is strong, smart and caring. It was hard for her to cope up after her parents’ death but she had Taylor with her. He was a character I liked as well. He was there for her every single time. Maya handled everything maturely after stepping outside the wall, she was ready to do anything to save Taylor’s life. Though I have to agree, she loved falling down multiple times! 😛 I definitely loved Coal. He was a bit mysterious and mostly kept to himelf. The attraction between him and Maya was instant though I’m glad nothing more serious happened between them because I don’t like insta-love. I definitely look forward to their romance and I hope it’s build up nicely. Though I did enjoy their kiss, it was pretty steamy and niceee.

I enjoyed Alicia’s sisterly relationship with Coal, she was pretty badass and a strong character. She knew how to fend for herself. Laurie was another character I liked. She was a warden and Maya and Taylor’s trainer at the SubWar. She also escaped with the group with Coal. She was a strong character as well, at first she was reluctant about trusting Coal and the others but eventually she gave into when she saw the truth.

Writing style-

The writing was simple and beautiful. This book was pretty great considering this is the author’s debut novel. The writing was pretty smooth and I fell into the flow easily. I loved how the dialogues and everything else was executed. My only complain is that sometimes it felt there were more descriptions than necessary so it felt a bit slow at times. But mostly the pace was even throughout the book and I didn’t feel bored for even a second.

Overall-

Chained is a book that I definitely enjoyed. The plot was great, it was thrilling and exiting. I loved the world building, the concept of the wall and the outside world was definitely intriguing. The characters were nice and relatable. The writing style was smooth and gorgeous and the pace was even throughout the book. I only had a few minor complaints about this book but other than that it was pretty exiting and an entertaining read. I definitely want to continue with this series and I really, really want to read the next book.

Recommend it?

Definitely yes if you enjoy this genre and a little slow storyline.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

A woman all alone in the world…A man too afraid to care for someone…

Up and coming racecar driver, Kisima Jennings, is all alone in the world and that’s exactly how she likes it. Who has time for family or friends? She has to keep the pedal to the floor before the career she’s worked so hard for goes up in smoke. But when a near-fatal crash jeopardizes her future, she’s forced to lean on someone for the first time in her life.

As a star athletic trainer, Derek Donovan has always kept his eyes on the prize, never letting personal entanglements come between him and his dream of being head trainer for the New Orleans Jaguars—until one misstep costs him everything. Now he’s starting over, but with a client as tempting as Kisima, is he destined to repeat the mistakes of his past?

Will the Race for Love trump the race for their futures, or can Kisima and Derek both find the success they’re longing for in each other’s arms?


PicsArt_1433969528805

I really liked this book, it was addicting from the very start. The plot was more than just romance. I loved the characters, they were intriguing, different and diverse. When I requested this book, I didn’t know it was a part of a series, nonetheless it can be read as a complete standalone. Also, I usually don’t go for sports romances but this one was damn good and was throughly enjoyable.

Summary-

Kisima Jennings is a race car driver for the Daniels. She has been groomed from her childhood under TJ Daniels who she considers a father figure. But in one race, she undergoes a fatal crash and to get back in form for the next race in three months, she reluctantly agrees to train under a star athletic trainer, Derek Donovan. When they meet, sparks fly. But both of them are hesitant at first, Kisima has suffered from a heartbreak and she didn’t want a relationship again anytime soon and Derek had made a mistake which almost costed his entire career. But they have a hard time staying away from each other. Meanwhile, Kisima remembers something about the crash and she finds out it was not her fault at all, somebody was trying to kill her and if that person is not caught, her life maybe in danger all over again.

Plot-

The plot was really good. It had the perfect combination of romance and suspense. It was told in alternate POVs of both the characters, so it was easier to understand what they both feeling and going through. I loved the way the romance built up. Though their attraction was instant but they had a lot of arguments and the tension build up slowly between them before they finally gave into each other. I definitely liked the thrill ride. Someone was trying to kill Kisima but nobody had any idea who it could be. Though Kisima pointed out someone, I knew it was definitely not that person, I was suspicious about the actual bad guy from onwards the middle of the book and I was pretty glad to find out that I was right, though the plot twist was really good and I was surprised to find out as so many truths came out. I loved how all of it was executed.

Characters-

The characters were pretty awsome and diverse and I fell in love with them. Every one of the characters were fresh and they had their unique point. Kisima was a strong character, she was hard working, passionate and caring. She loved racing cars, it was her dream. Though she was very scared to go back into the racing tracks or getting into any car, she eventually overcame that fear through the help of Derek who was beside her and helped her through every step. Derek was a strict teacher but he really cared about Kisima and saw to it that she recovered completely. He was toootally swoon-worthy and damn gorgeous. His methods of training were different but pretty effective. I loved the banters between them. They had lots of funny and humorous moments and it was crystal clear that they felt so comfortable around each other. Their romance was steamy and hot and I definitely enjoyed it. Their connection formed easily and they understood each other so much. I liked the other side characters as well, except one, I hated him sooo much.

Writing style-

The writing was simple and smooth. It was pretty easy to get into the flow of the book and I breezed through it. The pace was neither too fast nor too slow, it was even throughout the book. This book was pretty addicting and I had a hard time to stop reading it. I loved the suspense and the romance and I definitely loved how everything was executed.

Overall-

Race for Love is a book that I loved very much. The plot had romance and suspense and it was addicting from the very beginning. The characters were diverse and really good, I fell in love with them and could easily connect with them. The romance was sizzling hot, I enjoyed it very much. The writing style was smooth and easy to read, I breezed through the book very easily and the pace was even throughout the book. As I said earlier, I don’t usually go for sports romances but this book was pretty great and throughly entertaining. I’m definitely going to check out other books by this author.

Recommend it?

Definitely yes if you like sports romances, intriguing plot and awsome characters.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

High school is hard enough, Em knows. Her freshman year introduced her to all the cliques, annoying teachers, and tough homework assignments. But discovering you have super powers and not knowing how to control them is a whole new level of complicated.

Thankfully, Em isn’t alone. Her best friend Roz starts having unusual dreams that come true, and Tommy, Em’s secret crush, can hear the softest whispers in class.

A romance blossoms with Tommy. But just as things are looking up, people start dropping like flies. A telepathic serial killer is on the loose and only Em and her friends have a hope of stopping him.

Or do they? If they don’t figure out the killer’s identity soon, one of them could be next.​

This book was really good, I definitely liked the plot and the characters were great as well. It was quite a fast read and I enjoyed the ride. Though I didn’t fall in love with it but I enjoyed it immensely.

Summary-

The story revolves around a girl named Emily (or Em), she is the outcast in her class, she has only one true friend- Roz who always stays by her side and is a good friend to her. A new guy named Tommy with a past, enrolls in their school and Em forms a crush on him. Em’s always sweaty hands seems to heat up and she learns that she’s a healer and Roz finds out she’s a psychic as she starts having visions. They soon understand Tommy is no different than them, he has a sort of super hearing power. Then slowly things starts to spiral out of control. Roz’s deadly visions seems to come true and the trio quickly realise that there’s a killer on loose. But stopping this person seems quite impossible because he’s not an ordinary guy either.

Plot-

The plot was fresh and good. I quite enjoyed it. I liked how Em discovered her powers with the help of the school nurse Judy who had powers of her own and she handled it quite maturely. Her dreams rather nightmares about her father created a sense of mystery in the novel and I definitely wanted to find out more about it and I’m exited to read about it in the next book. Although the first part of the book lacks in action but things began to change and it took an interesting turn as it reached towards the middle. The romance between Tommy and Em was really sweet but I would have liked if there was more depth, hopefully I will get to see that in the next installment. The killer part was handled really well although I already guess the plot twist, I liked how things were executed.

Characters-

I liked the diverse characters in this novel, specially the trio. Em was a relatable character, she was sweet and shy. I loved the moment when she finally stood up for herself to the bullying. Roz was another character I liked, she was caring and sweet and looked out for her best friend. Tommy is the mysterious guy but he opens up to Em and I liked their bond, they could relate to each other. He was quite humorous and I loved it about him. I definitely loved the fact that they were responsible and took it upon themselves to solve the murder mystery.

Tommy’s brother was another character I liked, he was really funny and a good brother. I really felt angry towards Em’s family, not only she had to face her bitchy classmates who always made fun of her but she had no peace at her home as well. Her sister was quite psychotic, I understood her reasoning for following her everywhere but it definitely crossed the line and what kind of mother was that, she didn’t trust Em ever, she was quite unemotional towards everything. And the doctor, he was really, really creepy.

Writing style-

The writing was quite simple and easy to read. I easily breezed through the book in two sittings, I loved the smooth flow of the dialogues. The pace was fast and even throughout the book and I completely loved it.

Overall-

Connected was a book that I enjoyed very much. I liked the plot which was fresh and the characters were relatable. The budding romance between Tommy and Em was really sweet. The writing was simple and smooth and the pace was pretty fast. There was not even a single dull moment in this book and the mystery kept me on my toes. The last portion was really thrilling but the book ended on a cliffhanger and I’m dying to know what happens next, hopefully the second book will be released within next year.

Recommend it?

Yes.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Love thy sexy jerk of a neighbor…

CEO Michael Anderson might be something of a “control freak.” Still, he’s not quite sure why his therapist thinks dogsitting will fix anything—especially since he and the canine share a kind of mutual loathing. And to make matters worse, a house sitter moves in next door disrupting his peace—and his dates—with the worst possible music at the worst possible time… every time.

Free-spirited artist Mia Argaropolis has settled into the perfect gig—housesitting in NYC’s Upper West Side while working as an art therapist. Too bad she’s stuck living next door to a bossy control freak with a penchant for calling building security when she blasts music to drown out the noises coming through his bedroom wall.

Post-apocalyptic dinner rolls that nearly take her kitchen with them, a douchebag ex, and a Shih Tzu with the personality of Godzilla attack Mia in one day, and her unlikely neighbor comes to the rescue. Like it was her fault. And now, somehow, they find themselves engaged? Both agree, this neighborly feud just got taken to a whole new level.


PicsArt_1433969528805

Neighbours with Benefits was a book which was fun, humorous and sexy. I enjoyed this book from the very beginning, there’s wasn’t a dull moment once and the characters constantly kept me on my toes.

Summary-

Michael Anderson and Mia Argaropolis are neighbours and they both hate each other. Whereas Michael is discipline, uptight, a control freak, Mia is the complete opposite, she’s a free spirited artist, a little bit awkward and clumsy. Michael believes she’s exactly the kind of woman he should stay away from yet he finds himself intrigued by her. When Mia’s douchebag ex-boyfriend storms in her house, Michael saves the day but they both end up acting engaged infront of him and when other things are thrown in, she agrees to stay with Michael and they come to a mutual agreement to put up with the act until her friend’s wedding, in return she agrees to take care of the temporary dog, Clancy in his house. But this deal quickly escalates into something more. When sparks fly between them, can they find enough common ground to consider a future together?

Plot-

The plot was good and a bit fresh, I enjoyed it from the beginning. The banters between Michael and Mia were hilarious and there were many moments I found myself laughing out loud. I did feel that the feelings changed quite quickly between them, specially Michael’s. But I loved the romance, it was a slow-burn kind of thing, it was sweet and sexy. Although their feelings changed quickly, I’m glad she didn’t give in so quickly and their relationship developed and matured slowly throughout the book. I loved how the things were executed smoothly during the wedding and so many things changed and the real emotions flowed out, it was handled perfectly. And oh! The ending was just heart melting!

Characters-

I liked the characters, they were pretty different, in a good way. I loved Mia, she was fun, strong, free-spirited and knew what she wanted. It was hard to resist Michael but she did it because she knew she deserved “more.” It made me respect her much more. She also made Michael see what he was missing out on life, she fully changed his life course. Michael was the complete opposite of Mia. He loved being in control all the time and all he knew was work and work. But nonetheless he had a caring and sweet facade underneath his hard exterior. I simply loved how he stood up for Mia or came to her rescue every single time when she in trouble. Everything changed in his life after he met Mia and saw the world in a different perspective. I liked the other characters as well, although they played a minor role but they were interesting nonetheless.

Writing style-

The writing was simple and beautiful. I finished this book quite easily in a few sittings as the words flowed easily. I loved the dialogues and the banters between the characters. The pace was even throughout the book, it was neither too fast nor too slow.

Overall-

This book was totally fun and entertaining, I had only minor issues with it, other than that it was quite awsome. I enjoyed the plot from the very beginning, the characters had their fair share of faults but they were different and great. I enjoyed reading about them. The romance was a beautiful mixture of sweet and sexy. And the writing style was smooth and beautiful, I indeed liked this book very much.

Recommend it?

Yes if you like NA books with a good premise and awsome characters.

Review: The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak

25266817Author: Ali Novak

Tittle: The Heartbreakers

Series: The Heartbreaker Chronicles, book 1 [Can be read as a standalone]

Genre: Contemporary, Romance, [Young-Adult]

Page count and format: 336 pages, Ebook

Published: August 4th 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire

Source: I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

My rating: PicsArt_1431077933984


Blurb (from Goodreads):

“When I met Oliver Perry, I had no clue he was the lead singer for The Heartbreakers. And he had no idea that I was the only girl in the world who hated his music.”

Stella will do anything for her sick sister, Cara—even stand in line for an autographed Heartbreakers CD…for four hours. She’s totally winning best birthday gift this year. At least she met a cute boy with soft brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes while getting her caffeine fix. Too bad she’ll never see him again.

Except, Stella’s life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. Because Starbucks Boy is Oliver Perry – lead singer for the Heartbreakers. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?

But how can Stella even think about being with Oliver — dating and laughing and pulling pranks with the band — when her sister could be dying of cancer?


PicsArt_1433969528805

This book was sooo cute. At first I was confused whether to request it for review or not because of the mixed reviews in Goodreads. But then I put aside all my doubts and decided to see it for myself and I’m so glad I did, I absolutely enjoyed this heartwarming book which was filled with really awsome moments and great characters.

Summary-

Stella loves her sister, Cara very much, who’s going through a tough time because of her cancer. Due to this she couldn’t attend the concert of her favourite band- The Heartbreakers. Although Stella doesn’t like their music, she and her brother Drew decide to get their autograph as Cara’s birthday present. She didn’t know when she met a cute boy in Starbucks that he was the lead singer of The Heartbreakers and he, i.e. Oliver didn’t know she was the only girl who didn’t like their music. As Stella gets to know Oliver she realises he’s not bad at all but there’s always a “but.” She finds her questioning herself, will such a relationship with a famous person even possible, specially when her sister is fighting with cancer?

Plot-

I loved the plotline. It might be a little clichéd or cheesy but I enjoyed it very much nonetheless. The bond between the triplets- Stella, Cara and Drew were totally awsome, made me wish I had siblings like that who would do anything for each other. The family aspect was dealt very nicely in this book. Although the plot was not realistic at all, but that’s one of the soul reason I enjoyed it much more. C’mon a girl can dream right? Who doesn’t wish to meet someone famous in a coffee shop or Starbucks or like anywhere and when they seem to like you back, it’s a win-win. I think we all have dreamt about this every once in a while. *sighs* It was pretty much predictable how everything was going to go down but I loved how things were executed and handled perfectly.

Characters-

I pretty much loved all the characters in this book. They were different and each had their own unique personality. I liked Stella. Although she was pretty rude to the boys at first, her behaviour changed as she got to know them and she matured throughout the novel. She was childish at times but with a little push she knew how to correct her mistakes and move forward. She was witty and funny as well and I enjoyed the banters between her and Oliver. Oliver was a character I loved as well. He was impulsive, sweet and caring. It melted my heart when he did those small things for Stella which were really sweet gestures, he knew how to make his girl smile. He really did some stupid but when he stated the reasons, I understood but a little more communication would have solved their problem. But, nonetheless I loved their romance, it was really cute.

I really loved the rest of the boys in the band. Alec was the quite and shy type but he was a good listener. Xander was fun and caring but it was JJ who was my absolute favourite. He was flirty but really, really adorable. I fell in love with him and I can’t wait to hear his story. The boys were always team Stella and whenever Oliver did something stupid they would give him the cold shoulder. They sort of formed a big happy family. I really enjoyed their pranks and stuff, it was super fun to read about them.

Cara and Drew, Stella’s siblings were really nice and awsome characters as well, I loved them very much. Cara was everything for Stella but she knew her sickness shouldn’t be the reason to stop Stella from exploring her dreams. She gave the necessary push that was required for Stella to venture into a new adventure. Drew was a protective brother but not over possessive, he was loving, caring and a really sweet guy and was always there for his siblings.

Writing style-

The writing was simple and smooth. It was pretty easy to get into the story and I didn’t feel bored for even a second. It was a pretty entertaining read and I finished it in a few sittings. The pace was even throughout the story, though I did feel it slowed down a little during the middle but it picked up its pace quite soon. I was satisfied with the dialogues and the banters and the writing flowed quite smoothly.

Overall-

The Heartbreakers was really a good and interesting read. It was funny and light hearted, it was the perfect book I needed to read. It was fluffy and romantic as well. I loved the family and the friendship aspect this book beautifully portrayed. The plot was although a bit predictable but it was executed nicely. I enjoyed the characters very much, each of them were different and unique in their own way which made me fell in love with them. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the story. I’m really looking forward to read the rest of the books in this series.

Recommend it?

Yes if you enjoy cute, light-hearted and fluffy contemporary romance.

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.

Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack on Fortune’s Island and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.

Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.

But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen at The Love Shack on a hot summer night.


PicsArt_1433969528805

I really loved this book. The story was filled with different, heartwarming emotions and I fell in love with all the characters, they were simply headstrong and unique in their own way, they had their fair share of faults but you can’t help but fall in love with them.

Summary-

Darcy and Kincaid fell hard for each other in Fortune’s Island when they were young but situation forced them to go different ways which broke their hearts. Darcy was pregnant with Kincaid’s child but his father threatened her he would take the child away forever if she told Kincaid. So she broke up with him and he left without a fight. Now after years he is back in the same Island. She tries hard to resist him, most importantly keep her daughter a secret but secrets have a way of coming out. Now Kincaid has to make a decision- will be fight for Darcy and embrace his daughter or will he walk away once again.

Plot-

I have come across this plot line many times before but I simply loved how it was executed here. It was a wonderful story of second chance romance where the story kept me interested throughout the book, and Fortune’s Island was a wonderful setting. I felt emotionally attached to the story and it’s characters. It unfolded in a beautiful way. The chemistry between Darcy and Kincaid was undeniable and although I felt the romance was a tini-tiny bit less but I loved it. Although the main focus was on Darcy and Kincaid’s life, there were a few other POVs of other characters as well that gave a better view of all the lives in Fortune’s Island. I loved how the book ended, it simply melted my heart and left me wanting for more.

Characters-

I loved, loved the main protagonist, Darcy. She was a wonderful character I fell in love with. She was strong, passionate, caring and fiercely loved her daughter, she was the whole world to her. Darcy had a terrible childhood, her mother barely spared her a glance and that’s why she promised herself she would be a good mother and hell she was one of the most awsome mother a child could have! I felt bad for Kincaid about the secret Darcy kept from him for years, but I understood her reasoning. I loved Kincaid as well, although he had a tendency of running away, giving up without reasoning or a fight but I was glad he took his second chance seriously and fought hard for her. I loved it when he finally stood up for himself and took a chance in life and love. Both the characters developed and matured throughout the book. Emma, their daughter was another character I adored, she was soo cute, bubbly and chirpy. I loved all the other side characters as well, they were like a second family to Darcy in the Fortune’s Island. They were really great, supportive and caring.

Writing style-

The writing was simple and beautiful. It was easy to read and I breezed through the book quite easily. I couldn’t wait to finish the book cause I wanted to know how the characters made their decesions and where it brought them and how things unfolded. The pace was neither too fast nor too slow, it was even throughout the book. This was the first book I read by this author and I really loved it, I’m definitely looking forward to read the other books written by her.

Overall-

The plot was good yet predictable but things were executed uniquely which made me love it. The characters were simply mind blowing, each of them had their own unique attributes, specially Darcy was my favourite. The writing was smooth and beautiful and the pace was even throughout the book. I really enjoyed reading this book. And Then Forever is a beautiful start to a series. I really look forward to read the next book in this series about Julliana and Zach.

Recommend it?

Definitely yes if you love second chance romances with an emotionally gripping plot and awsome characters.

PicsArt_1433969528805

I wanted to read this book so badly because I wanted to know how everything was going to end. When I found out this blog tour I was more than happy and I instantly signed up for it. I loved this book, it definitely lived up to its expectations.

Summary-

The book takes off right where Beyond Reach, book 2 left off. Ariana, Zane, Cal and everyone else continue their fight for freedom on Earth under the tyranny of Novo. Ari and Cal are safe in an underwater facility after Novo bombed their headquarters in Florida. Zane has been been left behind in the Connecticut facility in a coma after being shot, his heart failing him. Ari remembers everything from her past and she holds the key to the secret, she knows the ultimate reason why the war is taking place. Everything becomes a mess in the war zone while she has to deal with her feelings and her pregnancy. When she is faced with the most difficult challenge, she has to make the hardest decision- to save herself or to save everyone she loves.

Plot-

I really enjoyed the plot which was really good. It focused more on the romantic aspect than the war. I was glad the love triangle was finally sorted out at the beginning, I think it was pretty clear who Ari was going to choose and she stuck with her choice which I liked very much. There was a greater emphasis on Ari’s psychic abilities and it was great to see them develop as she took control of herself. I was satisfied how everything was sorted out in the end. The plot twist was great, there were so many secrets that were spilled and the mystery was finally unveiled which was hinted in the previous novella (book 2.5)- Light of a Thousand Stars. I definitely liked the action which finally took place near the end. Though I would have liked, if there was a bit more explanation given about the rebellions and the war and how everything wrapped up in the end, nonetheless I enjoyed the plot very much.

Characters-

I liked every character in this book, all the characters grew up so much and were much more mature than the previous books. I really loved the character development that took place in this book. Ari grew up so much, I loved her determination and effort to keep everything under control and she made amends of her mistakes that she made in the past. She was a mature and grown woman in this book and she confidently took her decesions. I definitely warmed up to Cal in this book though he was still not my favourite. He acted immaturely and childishly sometimes but I understood he did out those out of insecurity. Zane, as usual, I loved him. He has always been a mature character and he was so much more in this book. I loved how he handled the situations and didn’t harbour any grudge against anyone, he was simply a good hearted person. I reeeeally wanted to know more about Zane and his happily ever after. I loved all the other side characters, they were supportive and played an active part in the rebellion.

Writing style-

I definitely loved the writing, it had developed so much since the first book. The flow was smooth and the writing was beautiful and descriptive, I liked how the dialogues were carried out, the pace was even and fast throughout the book and I didn’t feel bored for even a second. Though this book was big indeed, I easily finished it in two days as it was very addicting.

Overall-

The plot was great, the plot twist and the secrets kept it addicting from the very start, I loved the character development of all the main characters, it was great to see them more mature and selfless. The romance was good, the writing style was smooth and descriptive and the pace was even throughout the book. I was definitely satisfied with the ending and I loved this book very much.

Recommend it?

Definitely yes. If you loved the 1st two books tyen you have to read this epic conclusion to the story.
