Review: Tied Up in You By Erin Fletcher

Tied Up In You
By: Erin Fletcher
Release Date: July 10, 2017
Series: All Laced Up #2

Description:
Everyone says hotshot goalie Luke Jackson is God’s gift to girls, but the only girl he wants is his best friend, Malina Hall. He’s always known how brilliant she is, but now that he’s “accidentally” kissed her, he can’t stop thinking about her…or wanting to kiss her again.

Problem is, things have been a little…awkward since the kiss. Because she likes him, too? Hopefully, but even if she did, their futures—and the ridiculous schedules that come with them—are in the way. And now one of his teammates is showing interest, and the guy has more in common with Malina than Jackson ever will.

As her best friend, Jackson should get out of the way. But if there’s one thing he’s learned from hockey, it’s that you have to go for what you want, even if it means falling flat on your face. And he’s definitely falling for Malina.

Disclaimer: This book contains a hot hockey player who goes after what he wants, a super-hot, super-distracting shirtless workout, and the kind of best friends to lovers romance every girl in the friend zone has dreamed of.
 

Review:
This was an adorably sweet contemporary novel that hit just the right spot.  Erin Fletcher did a great job bringing us into the world of Malina and Jackson.  That time in your life when the big decisions about the rest of your future are made, and who you want to spend that time with.  It’s a daunting task but it’s always better when there are people who have your back.

We meet Malina and Jackson, who have been best friends forever but something just clicks and something else seems to form between the two of them.  You know what they say it’s very hard for a female and a male to be best friends because there is always one that may feel just slightly more than the other, and when they both do it’s a very magical thing.  The two of them are struggling with what will happen next in their lives but they figure things out together, maybe not the easiest way but the best way for them.

This book was very fast paced and seemed to move very quickly through the relationship, but if you think about it they’ve been in a relationship for many many years since they’ve known each other since probably elementary school.  It went so quickly because they know each other, they didn’t have to go through the whole learning phase of getting to know you and what you do and do not like.  They already have that in the bag.  So of course when they have a big blow out all the real daggers come out to play.  Because they know exactly where to dig.


Overall I liked the book, I’m intrigued to see what happened in the first book and I really can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.  This is a great read if you want something quick and fun, something that will get your emotions left and right but still simple young contemporary. I really enjoyed all the family moments too and this book had me googling Hawaiian food left and right.  Really enjoyed it.

Review: The Bad Boy's Girl by Blair Holden

The Bad Boy's Girl
By: Blair Holden
Release Date: Feb 27, 2017
Series: The Bad Boy's Girl #1

Description:
“Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix.”
— Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever

Tessa O’Connell is a girl as ordinary as they come-or so she thinks. Her aim for senior year is to keep her head down yet somehow manage to convince her childhood love Jay Stone to love her back. What she isn’t prepared for is for Jay’s brother, Cole to return to town and change the life she’s always been seemingly content to live. Tall, gorgeous as all hell and a bad boy with ocean blue eyes and the perfect edge of adorability, he was her greatest tormentor, her number one enemy.But the guy that’s come back is like no one Tessa’s ever come across. He challenges her, he tests her limits, he forces her to bring out the girl she’s long ago buried under a veil of mediocrity and most of all he compels her to consider that perhaps the boy that infuriates her to the point of no return might just her guardian angel.

Warning: The story comes with a bad boy notorious for making you swoon, inducing hysterical laughter and making you question whether you could purchase a clone on ebay

Review:
This book really wasn’t what I expected, because it was so much more than that.  I know this is a series from Wattpad and I will have to look into the rest of the series but Blair Holden had you hooked from the very beginning.  The characters were multi-dimensional and interesting to say the very least but what really got you was the story.

We meet Tessa and her friends who are constantly bullied by her ex best friend Nicole, while she is deeply in love and crushing on Nicole’s boyfriend Jason.  This is a classic story and one that always catches my attention because you just know there will be jealousy and drama from the get go.  But throw in an even hotter step brother who just also happens to be in love with someone who doesn’t even suspect it and the book just got a million times more interesting. 

Cole is a bad boy who has terrorized Tessa for most of her life, little did she know that there was something more to it than just that.  It’s so cute when boys are so obviously trying to get a girls attention probably not in the best way but it’s still so noticeable to everyone but the involved parties.  Again another classic story but still the way it was developed throughout the book, bringing him back after being away for a while and him finally being in touch with what he really feels and knowing how to express that.  Bonus. 

I really liked all the characters they bought life to this book and kept me wondering what would happen with them next.  It dragged a little in the middle with the transition of the story continuing but overall I can’t wait to read what happens next to these characters and how their lives are about to change in college.


Don’t get me wrong I feel like this was almost two short stories in one because it could have easily stopped with a happy ending for the two finally getting together, but then it kept going.  I was surprised and worried at the same time like where is this book going to go to next.  The way it ended left me breathless and my heart in pain.  You have to read this book from the very first line to the very last.  I am thoroughly impressed.

Review: Paper Hearts by Ali Novak

Paper Hearts
By: Ali Novak
Release Date:
Series: The Heartbreakers Chronicles #2

Description:

“When I met Alec Williams, I nearly fainted. Totally embarrassing, but how often does a regular girl get to meet a famous heartthrob?”

Felicity has been living in the shadow of her best friend Lucy since they were kids. But things change when she is introduced to a quiet guy named Alec. At first Felicity is intimidated by his fame, but as the two grow closer she starts to realize that Alec just might be the guy of her dreams. No other guy has ever made her feel so alive. 

The only problem? Lucy has different plans for Alec—plans that start with prom. 

Felicity quickly realizes that she will have to make a decision. Will she choose her best friend who has always been there for her, or the mysterious boy that she can't stop thinking about? Whatever her choice, someone is going to be left broken hearted.

Meet... The Queen of Hearts.

Review:
This was a very sweet book, great addition to this series.  Finding out more about the other band members is always a wonderful thing.  Ali Novak is doing a great job bringing this series to life.

We meet Felicity, who is a very dedicated person trying to get through her plan for life without any hiccups, but then she discovers the truth about something and all that goes out the window.  Her sister has been missing for a while and with the help of Alec, a member of the heartbreakers, and oh so scrumptious of a person she’s on a mission to find her.  Also included are her best friends Asha and Boomer.

Alec is a very serious and private person, I guess you can say he’s like the shy one in the group if you had to stereotype him, he’s very serious.  But with Felicity it’s like he wants to let himself go.  Get out from under the thumb of people around him.  The two main characters definitely have some familiar struggles just in different ways, but struggles none the less.  The two help each other overcome these struggles in life and with the freedom they both desired, or didn’t even know they desired.

I thought this book was really good, not as much as the first one but still good in its own right.  You can definitely read it as a stand-alone but it’s good to see the other characters from the first book blossom throughout the book or more like how they have blossomed since the first book.  I really enjoyed the book overall.  I was definitely interested in what would happen between Felicity and Alec, and was quite surprised with a few other characters in the book.


I will say that I am now interested in researching more origami especially the hearts, just sounded so cute in the book that I had to look it up and try it myself.  Another great thing about this book were all the great locations mentioned throughout, it’s always fun when there is a road trip involved.  Check the book out, it’s a good quick fun easy read.  Can’t wait for the next one in the series.

Series Order:
Book #1: The Bad Boy Bargain
Book #2: Swinging at Love
Book #3: The Perfectly Imperfect Match

Review:
Swoon worthy and adorable, that’s how I can best describe this book. 

This is my second Suttonville Sentinels books, luckily they can all be read alone.  It was so very sweet to watch these two characters develop and grow with each other throughout the book.  We meet Lucy who is very out there and unique in her own right, she likes to sew which is not something common in young kids these days but it was great to watch and visualize.  We also dive into Dylan’s life and his dream for becoming the next hot baseball star.  These two are very determined people but in different ways.  Where one is very low key and leaned back the other is very strict and regime in the things that they do.  

It was fun to experience the full on attraction of this ying and yang couple.  Sure there were some hiccups in the road, but it’s how they overcame them that mattered.  I loved all the secondary characters like Tristen and Otis as well as Lucy’s mother.  I really felt for her and her family when they would talk about their father and how they wish he was home from the military but it’s hard sometimes. 

There were moments in this book where my heart would sink and soar and I would connect with the characters so much.  Life is hard sometimes.  Achieving your goals can be even harder, but it’s that determination and that strength that will always get you there, sometimes you just have to get sidetracked to get on the right path.

I thought this book was overall adorable and sweet.  Very realistic it wasn’t insta love but there was definitely an instant connection between these two characters.  I really believe that they needed each other in so many ways to show each other that there are other things out there sometimes it’s good to be free and sometimes it’s good to have order.  Very quick and easy fun read.  Loved the baseball facts throughout the book and the insight into previous characters as well.

Blog Tour: Artificial Sweethearts by Julie Hammerle



Artificial Sweethearts
By Julie Hammerle
Release Date: 7/10/17
Published by Entangled Teen

Description:
It’s not chemistry between Tinka Foster and Sam Anderson that made them agree to fake date. With her parents trying to set her up with an annoying student golf coach, and intentionally single Sam’s family pressuring him to bring a date to his brother’s wedding, they could both use a drama-free summer.
So it’s not his muscular arms and quick wit that makes Tinka suggest they tell everyone they’re both taken. Definitely not. And it’s not butterflies that makes a kiss for appearances during the lake party go on way too long—so long that Sam wishes it were real.
But Tinka keeps people at arm’s length—she’s always been second best, even to her parents. And her relationship-for-show could crush everything when she realizes she’s done with fake, pretend, and second-best.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains bikinis at the lake, a lot of making out in dark theaters, and a meet-cute you’ll read twice.

Review:
I haven’t read anything by Julie Hammerle previously but I have always adored Entangled Crush books.  Ms. Hammerle did not disappoint in the very least.  I think this book was well written and really sucked the reader into this small town in Minnesota.  I was almost tempted to bring out some Christmas stuff, after all it is July!

We meet Tinka who is back from boarding school and who has moved to a new town without even knowing it.  Her parents just uprooted and did all this without her knowledge, as if that wasn’t shock enough she was going through her own things with her roommate who just happened to come along for the summer break.  This book definitely had a lot of complicated realistic situations that happen to people all the time.  It was hard to read but worth the read.  Tinka is a strong girl, but instead of facing her issues head on she tends to run away.  You see her grown throughout the book and finally realize what she’s been doing to herself and others around her.  Of course she has help learning this not only from old friends but from Sam, her neighbor.

Sam also has his own family issues to deal with, he never really stands up for himself and let people know what’s going on.  Sometimes it’s hard keeping up a fa├žade like that.  But together he and Tinka learn to grown as people with new emotions growing between the two of them.

I really can’t say enough good things about this book.  It was a quick read, very sweet and endearing. I had my heart strings pulled more than once throughout the book, I really felt invested in the characters and what they were going through.  I just hope you get a chance to read it and remember how important family and friends are in your life, and how important it is to always talk to them truthfully.  Letting things go will not only make yourself feel better but will make those around you understand and feel better as well. 


The relationship between Sam and Tinka was cute, should I or shouldn’t I, is this real or is this pretend struggle between the two.  It was sweet, and I was rooting for them the entire time.  Loved this book, definitely need to go read the first book in this series just to see how it all began in this small town in Minnesota.

Excerpt:
I spent the rest of the day filing paperwork for the funding process and preparing to open the library doors on Monday morning. I told Rose and Becca to spread the word. Tarryn had decided to move her smaller items in already, and she was asleep by nine the same night. It didn’t seem strange to me that I had a roommate; instead it made me feel comfortable. I never lived alone before, and I would feel lonely otherwise. Tarryn was quiet, but I knew in time she’d get used to me and I’d get used to her. We just needed to get to know each other first.

Once I was done with the paperwork, I filed the books that were left on the shelf from when Gram was still here. As I placed the classic books on the correct shelves, I felt a longing to finish reading my mysterious book in my nook.

So, instead of going to bed at a decent hour, I climbed into my cozy space and picked the book back up. I didn’t open it right away. Instead I inspected the outside for any sort of title. I found nothing of the sort. I flipped to the title page once more, trying to find my place, and that’s when I saw the word on the page. It was just a simple “The” typed out on the once blank title page. I ran my finger across it and realized it was printed in ink as if the press had done it. I was sure the night before it was blank, but then again, I was sure my dream about being with a man was real. So I wasn’t really a reliable source at the moment.

I found the spot where I ended with a dog-eared page. I absolutely hated doing this to the book and didn’t remember it at all. I usually had a nice bookmark, but this seemed to be the only thing to mark the page before I had fallen asleep. Running my fingers across the crease at the corner of the page, I settled back and started reading.

I woke up once again face down, this time I was in grass. I blinked my eyes and felt the blades of grass tickling my nose and lips. I pulled myself up and took a deep breath. I looked around and saw the fields upon which I had dreamt of the night before. I was back in England. I was dreaming the same dream. How odd.

There were times when I had thought I had the same dream over and over again, to only find out that it was my mind playing tricks on me. This was no mistake. I was, once again, in the same place.

“Emmeline, are you all right?” I looked up and blocked the sun from my eyes. The man from before was standing in front of me. “You … you disappeared. It happened so fast that I fear I cannot explain to you how it happened. Now you’re here once again.” He sounded really confused and, to put it lightly, so was I.

This dream felt way too real. It was exactly like before. So real and tangible that I couldn’t explain it even if I tried.

“I … I don’t know how I’m here again,” I mumbled.

He reached out to steady me as I swayed to the side. “You’ve been gone for days. I worried I was going mad, that your presence was one of my imaginings. I dared not to speak a word to anyone about it. I have to admit, Emmeline, I’ve been going slightly crazed since I saw you last.”

His hair was disheveled and he had grown a slight beard that only enhanced the sexiness of his strong jawline. His deep set blue-green eyes looked weary, and for that I felt awful.
My sudden disappearance had made him fall apart, that was apparent.

“I’ll tell you, I feel like I’m going crazy too. Trust me,” I admitted. “Can we sit somewhere? Out of the sun?”

“Of course.”

He held my arm and led me to a tree in the center of the field. Once underneath the large tree, I felt instantly better. I looked down at my clothes and saw that I was, once again, in my own clothes. This time a little better than before. I was wearing yoga pants and an old T-shirt.

“I can’t explain how or why I’m here. Hell, I don’t even know your name, but I’m here again and I’m beginning to think that this isn’t a dream. That I’m really here, with you,” I said as I touched his arm. “I’m not from … here.”

I didn’t know how to explain it to him, but I did the best any girl who was somehow traveling through time could. I didn’t have answers or explanations, but I had a gut feeling.

“I’m from a different time as you. As you can tell by my lovely clothing, I’m not from 1893.”

He placed his fingers on my lips, stopping me, while shaking his head.

“This isn’t right, Emmeline. Trickery at a time like this isn’t fair,” he said as he stood up fast. “I am leaving soon. I shall not have you doing this to me.”

My mouth fell open in shock and I stood. “Do something to you? Listen here, buddy, I didn’t ask for this. I sat down to read a book and then boom, I’m stuck in England with a stranger.”

I pointed at myself. “Look at me. Do I really look like I belong here?”

He looked at my clothing and up to my hair, and I could see his cheeks redden.

“You are dressed very indecent, I suppose. No woman I’ve ever met wears trousers. Nor do they wear clothing that fitting.”

I laughed. He thought this was indecent, he should see some of the dresses I had worn to parties. They were nothing like the dresses he was used to seeing on a woman. We absolutely didn’t dress ladylike anymore. My sexy little black dress that currently hung in my closet would definitely shock some of the people of this era for sure.

“I don’t know why I’m here. I’m absolutely not trying to, I don’t know, hurt you or anything. I don’t know how to go home.” I slumped back against the tree. “I wish that I could prove to you that I’m not lying to you, but I cannot. You’ll have to just believe me, I guess.” It was as simple as that. He could either believe this bat-shit crazy explanation or not. One way or another, I didn’t care. I just wanted to go home.

“I don’t know why, Emmeline, but I feel as if I should say that I do believe you.” He ran a hand through his thick hair, mussing it up. “I just don’t know how else to explain your abrupt presence. One minute you are here and the next you’re disappearing into thin air. I read many books on fiction, so I suppose it could be true.”

“Well, I may know someone who knows something. She works for the lucky bastard that owns that house,” I told him pointing to the house where Nancy was the last time I saw her. She was probably cooking something again for her master.

He smiled. “That house?”

“Yes. Her name is Nancy.”

“Ah. Nancy. And who is this Nancy woman you speak of?” He continued to smile as if this was a joke, but I ignored it.

“She’s a cook. I met her on my last visit here,” I explained. “She’s not the nicest person I’ve ever met, but I think she has some answers.”

“I must argue that Miss Nancy is more than a cook. She’s also the lady upon with which I trust my household while I’m gone. She’s more of an aunt than a housekeeper,” he said as he took my hand in his. “It’s very nice to finally introduce myself to you, Emmeline Bailey. I’m Jack Ridgewell or you may just call me the lucky bastard.”

Review: Trusting You & Other Lies by Nicole Williams

Trusting You & Other Lies
By: Nicole Williams
Release Date:

Description:
USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Nicole Williams delivers a seductive summer romance worth swooning over. Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Stephanie Perkins.

Phoenix can't imagine anything worse than being shipped off to family summer camp. Her parents have been fighting for the past two years--do they seriously think being crammed in a cabin with Phoenix and her little brother, Harry, will make things better? 

On top of that, Phoenix is stuck training with Callum--the head counselor who is seriously cute but a complete know-it-all. His hot-cold attitude means he's impossible to figure out--and even harder to rely on. But despite her better judgment, Phoenix is attracted to Callum. And he's promising Phoenix a summer she'll never forget. Can she trust him? Or is this just another lie?

Review:
Ahh, Nicole Williams has done it again.  She has succeeded in giving me all the necessary fills throughout a book.  This was a ride I would go on again, the book was just flat out amazing.  The character interactions, the emotions, the real life scenarios, it was just beautiful.  Trust, it’s a hard thing to get back, but it’s an important thing to have with anyone. 

We meet Phoenix, which when you finish the book couldn’t have been a more perfect name for the main character, who is on her way to spend the summer at a family camp, with her disastrous family.  She doesn’t have too much of any high hopes that this vacation will be any good especially with all the background drama happening with her family.  But being young, you really have no choice but to go along. This is where she meets Callum.  He’s quite the enigma himself, keeping to himself but somehow she breaks down through some of those barriers. 

The relationship the develop is very sweet and endearing, gives you high hopes that there are good things out there in life for us, but it’s their trust and sometimes lack of trust in one another that made their relationship just so real and believable.  I felt for them, and I was rooting for them throughout the whole book.  There were moments that made me smile, moments that made me sad and broke my heart and then of course moments that just outright made me cry throughout this book but those moments they shared gave me butterflies, and those are the best kinds of moments.

This book not only talked about romance, and love but it was about family.  Trusting your family and making sure your family trusted you.  It was a beautiful story to show this dynamic, everything isn’t always perfect but it’s how you perceive and work through those issues that make you the family you are.  It will bring everyone closer together.  Don’t get me wrong I loved the scenes between Callum and Phoenix, but those moments with her mom and her dad, and the precious ones with her brother, those are the memories I will keep the dearest to me from this book.  Family is everything.

I will definitely give some high praise to this book because trust and lies sometimes they go hand in hand, and sometimes you just have to learn why someone did what they did to get clarity on everything.
I loved the characters in the book, the scenery with it being at camp, and it being summer and all.  I really enjoyed reading through the different situations that took place in the book, again very believable and realistic, and dare I say may even be helpful to some who read it.  Sometimes you just have to remember that sometimes people do certain things in your best interest, even if you don’t see it that way at first.


Go read this book! It’s worth it and you will not regret it.  It really touched my heart and to that I thank the author, Nicole Williams, who has yet to let me down in any story of hers that I’ve read.
