A Perfect Ten (Forbidden Men #5) by Linda Kage

Let your hair down, Caroline, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.

I know I’ve closed myself off in a major way in the past year, ever since “the incident” where I messed up my life completely. It’s past time I try to live again or just give up completely. But this is quite possibly the craziest thing I’ve ever done. In a last ditch effort to invigorate myself, I’m standing outside Oren Tenning’s bedroom, I just peeled off the sexiest pair of underwear I own, and my hand is already raised to knock. My brother would disown me for doing anything with his best friend, and he’d probably kill Oren. But if I play my cards right, no one will ever know about this. Not even Ten.

Maybe after tonight, I’ll finally get over this stupid, irrational crush I hate having on the biggest jerk I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’ll just end up falling for him even harder. Maybe I’ll discover there’s so much more to my crude, carefree hunk than meets the eye.

Ten. This guy annoyed the hell out of everyone, but they love him anyway. I felt so happy and lucky when I received an ARC of this book. I was curious how the author would make me fall in love with him. I loved him in the previous books. He was so hilarious, but I wasn’t in love with him. Well now I am.

Caroline. I really liked her in With Every Heartbeat. She was a good friend to Zoey and she knew how to stand up for herself. She didn’t take shit from anyone and she was funny. I also felt really sad for her when Ten would knowingly hurt her feelings.
She was even funnier in this book and I just loved her. This was the girl who could handle Ten. The only girl I think who could handle Ten. That guy was hard to get along with since 99% of the things that came out of his mouth were not pleasant. In a funny way, but also in a “I can’t wait to hit this guy in the face” way.
Caroline is Noel’s younger sister. Ten is Noel’s best friend. Are you seeing the dilemma here? Noel is really protective of Caroline because she’s his little sister and because she’s been hurt before. Their parents are practically nonexistent, so it was up to Noel to take care of everyone. I understood Noel’s overprotectiveness and I forgave him for the wrong things he did because he just really wanted to look out for his sister. Ten was his best friend. Noel knew him, so again, I could not blame him for not being happy with their relationship.
But Caroline and Ten were good together. I loved them as a couple! Ten was surprisingly sweet and protective. He was only like that towards Caroline, so it made his actions even more special and endearing. 
I did not expect this book to make me cry, but it did. There were scenes wherein I wanted to sob. Ahhhh Linda Kage just did so well with this book! 

“Lick you later, baby.” (I just had to get this line in my review somehow. It’s so funny to me. Hihi.)

“Yo, Ham. I’m heading out.” He appeared out of nowhere beside me to tap our table and get his roommate’s attention.
I yelped because I hadn’t even noticed him moving toward our table. With a low growl, I scowled at him for startling me…or maybe for leaving now, because that meant he was still planning on meeting Kelly. The ass.
He met my gaze and paused. Reading something—though I’m not sure what—from my face, he leaned close to talk into my ear. “What? You’re not still mad at me for chasing off that little boy, are you?”
I sniffed and lifted my chin. “You’re never going let me date anyone without any kind of interference, are you?”
He watched me a moment longer, his intent expression harboring all his thoughts. Then he leaned in again. “How about this? If you ever find anyone good enough for you, I will step back and let you at him without even a single fuck-off glare in his direction.” Then he leaned even closer. “Problem is, I don’t think anyone will ever be good enough for the likes of you, baby doll.”
When he reached out slowly and caught a tendril of my hair, the achiest look entered his eyes. He studied the piece of hair he was methodically winding around his finger, and the way he watched it was just…I knew that look and recognized it intimately. Every time I saw him, I felt it rising from my own core, wanting, yet helpless to take.
A shudder wracked me. Once upon a time I’d told Zoey that if I knew for certain Oren really, truly liked me—liked me the way I liked him—I wouldn’t let Noel keep us apart. And I’d meant it.
I still meant it.
“Even you?” I asked him.

His eyes flashed at the question. “Especially me.”

Review: A Magic Dark and Bright (The Asylum Saga, #1) by Jenny Adams Perinovic

She meant to help a ghost…not unleash a curse. 
Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died.
The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania—that is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door. Amelia can’t help liking him, even though she spent her childhood thinking his grandmother was a witch. And she definitely can’t ignore the connection between his arrival and the Woman in White’s return.
Then Amelia learns that the Woman in White is a prisoner, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Devastated by the idea that her brother could be suffering a similar fate, Amelia decides to do whatever it takes to help the Woman in White find peace–and Charlie agrees to help her.
But when Amelia’s classmates start to drown in the Susquehanna River, one right after another, rumors swirl as people begin to connect the timing of Charlie’s arrival with the unexplained deaths. As Charlie and Amelia uncover the dark history of Asylum, they realize they may have unleashed an unspeakable evil. One they have to stop before everything they love is destroyed.

ARC kindly provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 

Wow I loved this! It scared the crap out of me, but in a good way. 

The cover does not look scary at all, but do not be fooled. 

Well some might not get scared. I just get scared easily. 


Amelia has always been able to see a woman in white at the back of her house. She has not seen the ghost since the night her brother died.
One night, a car suddenly pulls into Ms. McAllister’s driveway. The ghost appears then. After six months of not appearing, the ghost is suddenly there again pointing straight at the McAllister house. 
Almost everyone in town believes that Ms. McAllister is a witch. Everyone is a little wary of her and there are always rumors about the McAllisters.
The person in the car is Ms. McAllister’s grandson Charlie. Charlie and Amelia connect and a romance between them blooms. I loved Charlie! He was so cute and nice. He did not push Amelia into a relationship. He waited until she was ready, and he genuinely cared about her.
A lot of people were less than enthusiastic about Charlie and Amelia’s relationship; especially Amelia’s ex-boyfriend Ben. This guy was so annoying. He could not get the message.
Look Ben, Amelia is over you and you guys are never ever getting back together because you’re a douche canoe. Seriously, get over yourself.
A lot of people were already not approving of Amelia and Charlie’s relationship just because he was a McAllister. Now imagine what happened when dead girls were suddenly being found in the river. These cases were ruled as “suicides”, because there were no signs of struggling or any other sign that could mean there was foul play.  But of course people and Ben in particular, blames Charlie for all these unexplained deaths.
I was pretty sure Charlie didn’t have anything to do with those deaths, but I wasn’t 100% sure. Amelia was, but I wasn’t. I guess I was just really paranoid and creeped out while reading the book, so my feelings made me suspicious of everyone, even the male protagonist. I’m alone at home reading this creepy book, so forgive me of my suspicions.
Amelia also dreams of a girl named Marin. Whenever she would dream about Marin, she would wake up somewhere else; mysterious and scary.
Let’s move on to the secondary characters Leah and Ransom. Leah is Amelia’s best friend. She was always up for anything and she always had Amelia’s back.
Ransom is Amelia’s mom’s intern. He stayed at Amelia’s house because he had complications with his living arrangements.
The four of them were always together, and they discovered things together.
I really enjoyed this book! I could picture everything in my mind and it was not always a good thing because this book gave me the chills. It kind of had a “Woman in Black” feels. For those who do not know, that’s the horror movie with Daniel Radcliffe in it. It scared the crap out of me. The story of that movie is not similar to this book, but it just gave me the same kind of feelings.
I cannot wait for the second book! That ending was just…ugh. Now I have to wait forever for the next one.

“Where have you been?” My sister rushed forward, catching me up in a tight hug. “I’ve been trying to call you all day. We checked everywhere and couldn’t find you.”
“Sorry. I just needed some alone time.” I squeezed her back, unable to stop from smiling. The thought of Anne turning her back on me had scared me more than I liked to admit.
“Well, I get you might want that.” She stepped back. “But you could have told someone.”
“You can’t just disappear like that.” And Ben kept right on frowning. “Shit, Liz, you’re pregnant.”
“Don’t upset her,” snapped Anne.
Ben ignored her. “I don’t know what the hell’s going on in your head. But you need to let me know where you are.”
My eyebrows went up and my mouth opened, ready to rip him a new one.
“She doesn’t answer to you. She’ll let you know if and when she decides to let you know,” said Mal, laying down the law to his bandmate before turning my way. “You will text your sister next time you decide to go wandering for a day, understood?”
My mouth, it still hung open.
“Christ, man.” Over and over, Ben’s hands rolled into tight fists before releasing again. “Can you cut the shit and get off my back for a fucking minute?”
“Don’t swear at him.” My usually sensible and staid sister poked a finger dead center in Ben’s broad chest. “You’re the one that caused this mess, thank you very much. She might still be a little young and naive, but you’re definitely old enough to know better.”

“That’s right.” Standing about as tall as a skyscraper, despite only coming up to Ben’s nose, Mal stared him down. Or up. Whatever. “This is a family matter. You can leave, thanks.”

Meet Ben and Lizzy on March 31st!

Review: Worth the Risk (The McKinney Brothers #2) by Claudia Connor

When a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.

Two hearts locked away . . . Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It’s easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn’t easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.

Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare—and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night . . . or so he believes.

Both desperate for a second chance . . . Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he’s intrigued. What he doesn’t know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again . . . to a side of himself he’s tried to forget . . . a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

4.5 stars!

Oh Stephen. I’ve been really curious about this guy since the first book. He was mentioned like once or twice, but that was enough to make me really excited about his story!

This guy has been through a lot. His life may look perfect on the outside with women all wanting him, men wanting to be him, more money than 99% of the population, but he’s not. He’s empty. He’s miserable. He lost the love of his life. He distanced himself from his family and buried himself in work, but then came Hannah.

Oh Hannah. This girl has experienced the worst kind of nightmare. A criminal minds episode type of nightmare. She was so strong even when she thought she was weak. Her brothers were all overprotective because of what happened to her. She loves them and she appreciates their concern, but she wants to be independent and she wants to move on from what happened to her. She thinks she’s weak because she still sometimes needs her brothers, but I think she’s so strong because she was still able to smile and live despite what happened to her.

Hannah beguiled Stephen since the first time he saw her, but he was just too afraid to love again. He made a lot of mistakes, mistakes that made me want to hit him, but he made up for them. He worked hard to earn Hannah’s trust.

I must say that I kept anticipating glimpses of Matt and his family. They’re just so cute!

This story was about letting go and letting love in. It was really nice to read about Stephen and Hannah healing each other. Can’t wait for the next book!

“Sorry.” I croak out and I don’t even know if he hears me his hand goes to the collar of my leather jacket and he shakes me hard and my hand accidently presses down on the button for the Taser to ignite it.

“Um.” I bite my lip

February Wrap-Up Books

*New Adult Romance*
**Explicit Scenes and Language**

I used to think everything was black and white, truth or lie, easy or hard, that if I could just escape my strict, overbearing, abusive father, my life would be perfect. But since I’ve found a reason to risk his wrath and leave, to help a friend in need, I’ve come to realize everything I thought I knew is wrong. 

Friends have their own agenda, honesty comes with a dosage of lie, easy doesn’t even exist, keeping secrets sucks, and love…love is the most painful thing of all. 

Maybe if Quinn Hamilton hadn’t asked me to skip classes for the day and help him pick out an engagement ring for my best friend, I wouldn’t have fallen for him so completely on that sunny Tuesday afternoon and I wouldn’t feel so conflicted. But I did, and I can’t take it back, no matter how hard I try. So I have to deal with the fact that even I’m not as good, or honest, or caring as I’d always thought I was, and no matter what I do next, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me.

-Zoey Blakeland

*Don’t worry! The hero and heroine are not cheaters.*

She meant to help a ghost…not unleash a curse.

Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died. 

The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania—that is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door.

The truth shall set you free.

My name is Calla Price and I’m drowning.

My new world is a dark, dark ocean and I’m being pulled under by secrets.

Can I trust anyone? I don’t know anymore.

The lies are spirals. They twist and turn, binding me with their thorns and serpentine tongues. And just when I think I have it figured out, everything is pulled out from under me.

I’m entangled in the darkness.

But the truth will set me free.

It’s just ahead of me, so close I can touch it. But even though it shines and glimmers, it has glistening fangs and I know it will shred me.

Are you scared?

I am.

Winning what you want may cost you everything you love 

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. 

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. 

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined. 

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

Book two of the dazzling Winner’s Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement…if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.

She’s the executioner.

As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.

However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.

A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars. 

Book Review: Ember (Eagle Elite #5) by Rachel Van Dyken


I am a Killer. A Rapist. A Monster.
I know only pain and survival.
That is until the Cappo’s sister walked into my life.
And changed everything.

She’s a light who makes my darkness darker, her smile makes my heart turn to ice, and I can’t escape the fear her seductive looks instill–knowing it’s only a matter of time before I fail–again, and take her for myself.
This is the story of my redemption.
But it’s not pretty…I died, and now I’m alive, but not living, breathing but not surviving. I am Phoenix De Lange, son to a murdered mob boss, estranged brother, horrible friend, monster in the making, newest leader to one of the most powerful families in the Cosa Nostra.
And I will have my vengeance.
Or die trying.
I am Phoenix De Lange.
Death is all I know.
Until she offers me a piece of life–I can’t resist taking. 


5 STARS!!!!


WHAT?! ME?! NO WAY!!! (sneakily wipes tears away) 

I hated Phoenix. I really did. He was evil and I wanted him to die; but not anymore. I started feeling sorry for him in previous books, but now I just straight up love him. He did a lot of twisted things, but it wasn’t his choice. He lost himself along the way. 

Phoenix is now the new boss of the Nicolasis, he has a nice fancy car, and he’s been given a second chance; but he’s still miserable because the guilt is consuming him. 

Bee is finally free, but she has no idea what to do with her freedom. She has one friend that doesn’t even like her most of the time. Phoenix. But he does like her. He just can’t. 

I loved how Bee helped Phoenix with everything. She was so supportive of him and she truly believed in him. Phoenix needed someone to believe in him. Everyone always assumed the worst of him, which I cannot really blame them for, but not Bee. She only saw the good in Phoenix, and he saw that she really did believe in him. That’s when he started to heal.

I enjoyed every single page of this book. I never wanted it to end. I always get lost in Rachel Van Dyken books. 

Sergio’s book. I cannot wait for his story OMG that sneak peak was CRUEL. I just want him to be happy. Please let him be happy. 


Review: Obligation (Underground Kings #2) by Aurora Rose Reynolds


[ob-li-gey-shuh n]
An obligation is a course of action that someone is required to take, whether legal or moral.

At six years old, Myla was sent to a family her father and mother had chosen for her when they knew their time on earth was almost up. What they were unaware of was what they thought would be her safe haven would become her living hell.

Kai has been watching Myla from afar since he took over the family business from his father and inherited the responsibility of keeping her safe. When word gets back to Kai that Myla is not only in danger, but that his assets are being compromised, he immediately jumps into action and does the only thing that can be done at the time by marrying her.

Neither Myla nor Kai would have thought that something that started off as a farce would become the most important thing either of them could’ve ever done. 


4 stars!

I love Aurora Reynolds books! They all give me the same kind of feels. They’re easy reads that make you feel all cuddly inside. Not really sure how they make one feel “cuddly”, but that word just sounds like how I feel. Does that make any sense? No? Okay. *sad face

Myla has been through a lot in the past 48 hours. Her bakery was burned, she saw her vile stepbrother again, and she got married. Rough. 

Kai. This guy has been a mystery to me since he was first introduced in Until Trevor. I knew he was a dangerous guy, so of course that made me want to read more about him. 

Kai was so overprotective of Myla, but it was in a way that I could accept. He just really wanted to protect her so I was all for it. 

So Myla is hiding something from Kai that keeps them from really becoming open and secure with each other. I know that some people would feel really annoyed about the secret because it’s been used so many times, but I still felt for Myla. I think it’s because I personally know someone who has experienced that nightmare; so whenever I read a book that has a character who has experienced that, it always gets to me. 

Sad feelings aside, I enjoyed this book. Aurora Rose Reynolds books always leave me feeling in love and happy. I needed this.
