Book Review: Flock Kate Stewart

Flock (The Ravenhood Duet #1)Flock by Kate Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

October 15-20
Can you keep a secret?

I grew up sick.⁣

Let me clarify.⁣

I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.⁣

Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.⁣

When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.⁣

Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.⁣

Secrets that cost us everything to keep.⁣

That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.⁣

Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.⁣

And all were punished.

Review : I loved this book it was insane and I can’t wait to start the sequel . This is about Cecelia see she’s staying with her father she barely knows for a year so she can get her inherentance . At her job the one her father owns she meets Sean . Sean and Cecelia fall for each other fast . Sean’s friend Dom is definitely interesting Cecelia has heard rumors about them about how they share woman and oh its true and Cecelia dives in with night and day with these men. See these men they are into some sketchy stuff even stuff Cecelia doesn’t know . But one day she is humiliated and Sean gives her a sort of truth . See she’s the secret they all want to take her father down and she was kinda a pawn but now it’s to dangerous for her to be involved See Cecelia father covered up Doms parents murder . And Sean and his friends are going to give the town back to who deserves it . I can’t wait to start the second one .

Quotes : Those boys, pretty as they are, I think might have the devil inside them.”

My eyes glide over the perfection that is Alfred Sean Roberts as he walks in contemplative silence beside me.

My rainy days are yours, Dominic. If you want them.”

Don’t knock romance books. From the last one I read, I learned how to play a solitary card game,

There are very few men worth the hell they put you through. So be very careful about who you give your heart and body to. They might eventually take more than you can handle.”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

October 15

After wandering into an alluring Halloween party that is said to go down in history, Quinn finds herself captivated by three masked men. As she immerses herself in a night of both pleasure and pain, she finally has the perfect opportunity to bring her darkest fantasies to life.
Or death.


This is a Dark Romance/Suspense, Reverse Harem Novella. Scream For Us contains mature and graphic content that is not suitable for all audiences. Trigger warnings include: graphic sexually explicit scenes, physical assault, attempted sexual assault, mentions of self harm/bullying, blood/gore, mask kink, breath play/choking, knife play, fire play, praise/degradation kink, and murder.

Review : This sexy Halloween reverse harem was such a fun read . Quinn goes to this Halloween party where she was almost attacked but this ghost face guy protects her . Then there is Jason and Michael . They all have sexy fun together. Until Quinn runs into her old bully and then they all ask her and they kinda kill the men who bullied her . They agreed for one night but ghost face wasn’t happy about that see he’s been watching her .

Quotes : “It’s all you’ve ever wanted. To be protected. Safe,” he sharply states, cutting across the front lawn of a house. “We will keep you safe, little Quinn.”

Someone dressed as Michael Myers stands in the doorway. How is every one of them taller than six feet? I’ve been reading too many smut books lately, and I clearly haven’t gotten out enough.

Book Review: Flower crowns and fearsome things Amanda lovelace

Flower Crowns and Fearsome ThingsFlower Crowns and Fearsome Things by Amanda Lovelace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

October 6-7

in her new standalone poetry collection, flower crowns & fearsome things, bestselling & award-winning poetess amanda lovelace explores the complexity of femininity through alternating wildflower & wildfire poems.

within these pages, you will find that each of us has the ability to be both soft & fierce at the same time. there is no need to choose one or the other.

Review: A beautiful collection of poetry. I loved this authors other work of poetry and I think this one may be my favorite.

Quotes

everyone loves a strong woman until that woman no longer tolerates their bullshit. —the age-old proverb.

being friends with girls isn’t too much drama, but you know what is? constantly trying to burn your sisters at the fucking stake out of pettiness & resentment when you could just support them instead. —commit to putting out more fires than you start.

is it normal for a father to make you feel like your voice is so small it doesn’t even matter? —just a stupid, silly girl.

there are days when she wants so badly to escape her life for something simple & carefree—   to wake up in a cramped cottage with a tangled & overgrown garden where she can get drunk on tea among butterflies & faeries.   oh, what a dream that would be. she would never have to see anyone again.   —magic still has to exist somewhere, right?

Book review : Empire of storms Sarah j . Maas

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5)Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

June 1-October 1

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t.

With her heart sworn to the warrior-prince by her side, and her fealty pledged to the people she is determined to save, Aelin will delve into the depths of her power to protect those she loves. But as monsters emerge from the horrors of the past, and dark forces become poised to claim her world, the only chance for salvation will lie in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

In this breathtaking fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, Aelin will have to choose what—and who—to sacrifice if she’s to keep the world of Erilea from breaking apart.

Review:Review : Another great book in this series I loved this one it was action packed and so crazy till the very  end . Aelin and her court are looking for ways to stop erawan . I loved the different POV in this book.  I loved the slow burn with Aedion and lysandra  . And of course I love Rowan and Aelin that scene on the beach wow . And mannon and Dorian also wow . Mannon saved Dorian again and put her 13 at risk and we find out that mannon is queen of the crockans.  Some familiar faces from assassins blade books Rolphe and  Ansel  . Ansel got word from aelin  and we find out she tried to get her out of endovier. The eye of ellena we find out is a portal to the past and Mannon and aelin need to use it . I also loved Lorcan and Elide they were and interesting together as they traveled and they found aelin  . The two other men  Gavriel and fenrys were sent to kill Lorcan . Gavriel finally meets his son Aedian and well Aedian is pissed as he has a right to be . Maeve shows up
Elena tells Aelin the plan and what she needs to do she is sent right to Maeve . Maeve took Elide . Maeve takes Aelin . We find our Rowan and Aelin are mates. Aelin slipped Mannon the two keys . Rowan shows up looking for Aelin they got married . Lysandra plans to shift into Aelin to pretend to be her cause no one can know she’s been taken . Rowan plans on finding Aelin . I loved this book

Quotes : “It is not such a hard thing, is it – to die for your friends.”

You will find, Rolfe, that one does not deal with Celaena Sardothien. One survives her”

Aelin Galathynius had raised an army not just to challenge Morath, but to rattle the stars.”

Where is Aelin.
Where is my wife?”

And tell Rowan,” Aelin said, fighting her own sob, “that I’m sorry I lied. But tell him it was all borrowed time anyway. Even before today, I knew it was all just borrowed time, but I still wish we’d had more of it.” She fought past her trembling mouth. “Tell him he has to fight. He must save Terrasen, and remember the vows he made to me. And tell him . . . tell him thank you—for walking that dark path with me back to the light.”

“I’ll make one more promise,” she said, folding her bloodied hand into a fist as she lowered it before them. Darrow tensed.
Her blood dripped onto the sacred soil of Terrasen, and her smile turned lethal. Even Aedion held his breath beside her.
Aelin said, “I promise you that no matter how far I go, no matter the cost, when you call for my aid, I will come. I promise you on my blood, on my family’s name, that I will not turn my back on Terrasen as you have turned your back on me. I promise you, Darrow, that when the day comes and you crawl for my help, I will put my kingdom before my pride and not kill you for this. I think the true punishment will be seeing me on the throne for the rest of your miserable life.”

I am going to find the Crochans. And I am going to raise an army with them. For Aelin Galathynius. And her people. And for ours

Book Review: Glass sword Victoria aveyard

Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2)

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


September 2-22

If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare’s blood is red – the colour of common folk – but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from the prince and friend who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by the Silver king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red and Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

Review : The sequel was crazy so much happened and I couldn’t stop reading. Mare has decided to build an army with newbloods but first she has to find them before maven does. But before their on the island with this colonel who is Farley father . Shade is alive he has powers like Mare he calls it jumping .The colonel traps cal and then Mare but they escape and they are gonna find these newbloods. I was kinda annoyed with Mare at some parts in this book cause she was mad at Cal for not wanting to kill all silvers there are good silvers Juilian and Sara who are still prisoners. And there are bad reds also there isn’t one is better than another . But it was cool to see the different ability the different newbloods had . They are plan to go to the palace and break the newbloods out but Shade dies and it’s so sad cause I liked him with Farley. They get Julian and Sara the queen is dead . They go back to the island. But Mare has to the choke but they run into maven and she bargains herself to him .
Quotes :
No one is born evil, just like no one is born alone. They become that way, through choice and circumstance.”

“If I am a sword, I am a sword made of glass, and I feel myself beginning to shatter.”


Anyone, anything, can betray anyone. Even your own heart.”

Book Review: Punk 57 Penelope douglas

Punk 57

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


September 8-9

We were perfect together. Until we met.”

Misha

I can’t help but smile at the words in her letter. She misses me.

In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.

It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…

And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.

Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?

Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?

F*ck it. I need to meet her.

I just don’t expect to hate what I find.

Ryen

He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.

Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his number or picture or something.

He could be gone forever.

Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.


Review : I loved this book it was so good I love Misha and even Ryen . This is about two people who have been pen pals since 5th grade. But then one day they meet at this scavenger event his band . Then he stops writing cause his sister died of a heart attack and he was angry so he enrolled in Ryen school under a fake name cause he had a mission . Ryen has had this shell on her since she was young she’d rather be popular than alone even though she can’t stand her friends . Even Trey who wants to take her to prom. Mason aka Misha and Ryen butt heads and then they end up having sex at a drive in but she still doesn’t know who he is . Ryen is punk the one writing stuff on the walls in the school. Ryen finds out Misha is Mason and is hurt and upset but then she finds out his sister died . But Ryen has one last task as punk to write everything about Trey. We find out Misha real reason for coming to the school to confront his mother aka the vice principal. Trey also gets banned from school grounds cause girls are coming in to report stuff what a creep. It shifts to 5 years later Ryen is pregnant and Misha is making music I loved this book.

I learned a long time ago that you don’t need to reveal everything inside of you to the people around you. They like to judge, and I’m happier when they don’t. Some things stay hidden.


A few months ago, a jogger named Anastasia Grayson, who was only a year younger than us, was found dead on the side of this very road. She had a heart attack,


like girls,” he whispers in my ear, and my heart is pounding so hard it hurts. Then the tip of his tongue glides up my neck, and I’m frozen, breathing a mile a minute as heat races through my blood. Fuck. “But you?” His deep voice and hot breath fall over the skin of my neck. “You kind of taste like shit.”

I miss you every day, I write. You’re my favorite place.




I part my lips, running them over the lip ring and savoring the feel as he groans and digs his fingers into my thighs. I tighten my legs around him, needing to feel him. “Bitch,” he whispers. “Loser.”


Ryen Trevarrow, Queen Good Girl, sneaks into the school at night, breaking more than one law, to anonymously leave messages and air dirty secrets for the student body right under their noses


Members: Dane Lewis—guitars and backing vocals Lotus Maynard—bass Malcolm Weinburg—drums Misha Lare—lead vocals, guitars “Oh, my God.” I crumble, sinking out of my chair and to the floor, sobbing and shaking my head. “Oh, my God,” I cry. I run my fingers through my hair, holding my head and my chest growing heavy. I suck in short, shallow breaths. I can’t breathe. Masen is Misha. “What the fuck?!” I yell.


He’s kind of the black sheep—I’m sure you can tell,” he explains to her, as her eyes skim down my tattooed arms. “We’ll take him back to Thunder Bay, and he will not return to Falcon’s Well. You have our word. We’ll escort the little shit home right now.” I grind my teeth together. Will’s eyes twinkle with laughter.


“I’m the black sheep?” I challenge. “I’m the black sheep? Did I just spend two and a half years in prison? How could she not know who you were? Why don’t you roll up your sleeves and show her your tattoos?” Will adjusts his collar and cuffs, primping himself.


Misha?” Yep. And awesome. She remembers my name. Two points for Mom. Now she knows. Me choosing to come to this school and sit in this office had nothing to do with Trey. It was about her.

Book review: The Chase Elle Kennedy

The Chase (Briar U, #1)

The Chase by Elle Kennedy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


August 8-September 4th

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.


Review : I loved this book Fitz and summers story was funny and sexy . Summer likes Fitz a lot and she’s going to be attending briar college and she needs a place to stay after she wasn’t allowed to stay at the sorority house since the innocent that happened at her last school so she ends up rooming with. Fitz, Hunter and Hollis . But this is after new years after her and Hunter kissed on new years cause she overheard Fitz talk to Garrett saying she’s drama and fluff so she got mad . So they have really bad sexual Tension they bicker and anoy each other. Summer makes a new friend Brenna I love her . Her and Hollis were my favorite side characters. So summer has Adhd and has trouble focusing and she’s worried about her classes. Her professor is a big creep though he winks and flirts with her so icky. Summer and Fitz kissing sumer get it was the kiss. Fitz got an interview with this video game billionaire whose kinda a douche. Summer got in a bar fight protesting Brenna and Fitz got marathon her cause he was worried. Sometimes Fitz kinda annoyed me he was very judgmental of summerbut didn’t want her going out with Hunter. She goes out with Hunter but it wasn’t going anywhere cause she was thinking about Fitz. She got home and slept with Fitz. Fitz invites her to this gala for this interview with the billionaire douche and he totally insults them both.then summer breaks up with Fitz cause she thinks it’s her fault he didn’t get the job then he tells her he loves her.then Dean walks in on them having sex and he punches Fitz in the balls. The creep professor tries to kiss summer what a creep and then humiliates her in class by saying this paper is what A bad paper is what a dick. Then he pushes her fashion show cause he knew her models would be late . Fitz gets some of his teammates to model instead himself included. Summer walks in on Norah and the professor the girl obviously said no and he would of raped her they go to the dean to report it . Loved this story can’t wait to read the rest.


Quotes :

We live in a society where too many women tear each other down instead of raising each other up. That’s absurd to me. We need to empower one another, teach future generations of girls that it’s important to stand together. Once upon a time, we had a common goal and a common enemy. We were burning bras, and fighting for the right to vote.
Now we’re body shaming each other on social media and blaming the mistress if our man cheats.”



I want a man with clear intentions. A man who makes an effort and is excited to spend time with me. A man who actually wants to want me. If he has to fight himself to be with me, then chances are he’d never fight for me if it came down to it.
What woman would ever choose somebody like that?”


You’re not allowed to get pregnant until you’re at least thirty. I’m not ready to be an uncle.”
“Oh my God. Life isn’t always about you!” They stand there bickering as if I’m not bent in half on the marble floor, gasping for air.
“I’m not having kids with you,” I wheeze at Summer. “I don’t want to be part of your insane family.”
“Oh hush, sweetie. It’s too late. I’ve become attached.”

I feel like too many girls fail to remember one vital truth: we deserve someone who gives us one hundred percent. Half-assed effort isn’t effort. Half-assed love isn’t love. If a man isn’t all in, then we need to be all out.”

Dean,” Summer begs, burying her face against my chest. “Turn around. Please.” “Oh my fucking God. Are you having sex?” he thunders. “Right here?!” “Dean! Turn around!”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


August 29-30

Jack is a faceless gamer known as The Joker. He makes a living playing video games and using his gravelly voice to bring people’s sexual fantasies to life.

When the top gaming site on the West Coast sends someone out to interview him, Quinlan walks into his apartment with her auburn curls and thick curves, and they’re instantly drawn to each other.

Quinlan has no idea of the monster that lurks beneath the surface of his calm demeanor.

Jack is quicksand, pulling her down into the dark underbelly of his desires.

To get out unscathed, she’ll need to give into the hunger she has always tried to deny.

Quotes

Bold of you to assume I find you attractive. How would I? I’ve only managed to see your eyes.” “They’re nice eyes though, no?”

Seems like you’re doing more than just telling me some phrases, Joker.” “My name is Jack.

Only good girls get orgasms, Q. Naughty sluts get punishment. Do you want orgasms, or do you want me to tie you to my bed and whip you until you can’t breathe?

You can put me down. I can walk, and I know I’m not light.” “Shut the fuck up, you’re beautiful,” I said and gave her thick ass a squeeze.

Book review : Pitcher Kristy Marie

Pitcher (Commander in Briefs #0.5)Pitcher by Kristy Marie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

March 18-July 29

Kristy Marie brings you a hilarious novella about the problem with loving your best friend.

No one needs that many hookups!

Not even soon to be major league pitcher, Theo Von Bremen.

So, I help him by routinely thinning out his contact list—because I’m the best roommate ever. And he’s optimal baby daddy material.

For me—not Amanda 1, 2, or 3.

But since the man can’t take a hint; I’ll continue to spray his sheets with my perfume and accidentally leave my panties in his laundry.

That has to be enough to break a man eventually. Right?

Review : I enjoyed this story it was funny and cute . This is about Theo and Aniston they have been friends since teenagers . But when Aniston grandparents die Theo and Aniston decide to move in together for college. Theo makes sure guys stay away from Aniston even his twin . When things get hot one night will they move to more than more than friends but Theo is moving to do more with his baseball. And then Aniston asks Theo to take her virginity .

Quotes : “You’re stuck with me for the next four years, McCallister. No take backs.” Slow, almost purposely, as if she needs a minute before she faces me, Anniston turns in my arms. Her eyes shine brightly in the sun before a quivering smile tugs at the corner of her mouth. “No take backs,” she agrees and swallows hard. No take backs. She just signed a deal with the Devil. Anniston McCallister is mine. All. Mine.

I’ve always had a bff, and he has a dick. A big one. And because of said dick size and rumors of said dick size, I’m considered a threat.

Fine. Go get ’em, T-Dog.” His face is one of horror. “I take it back. Teddy is fine.”

Yeah, bro,” Thad adds, like he wants me to push him down the stairs. “Stay here and rest. I’ll look after Ans tonight.” Mom will miss him, but she’ll eventually move on, right? Ugh.

The denim slides down his muscular thighs with such perfection that if he ever threw out his arm, he could easily have a job at a strip club. Women would pay a fortune to have him pop out of a cake or some shit and shake those narrow hips while killing the Happy Birthday song with his horrible singing.

The other part of me takes offense he might think I can’t play poker without Theo. Who do you think taught Theo? Dudes, I swear. When will they ever learn women are better at most things than they are? It’s science.

“Theo,” I say, pausing the game. He turns, catching my gaze. “Hmm?” You can do this, Anniston. Just tell him. “I’m a virgin.” There. See? Nothing to it. Except, Theo makes a strangled sound. “Okay,” he drawls, his face looking pink tinged. “Why are you telling me this?” That is the question, isn’t it? “Because I want you to take my virginity.”

Book review : A thousand boy kisses Tillie Cole

A Thousand Boy KissesA Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

June 11-July 28

One kiss lasts a moment.
But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime.

One boy.
One girl.
A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade.
A bond that neither time nor distance can break.
A bond that will last forever.
Or so they believe.

When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation?

Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come.

Book review: This book broke me it was beautiful this love story was so sweet . This is about poppy and Rune .poppy and Rune meet as kids when Rune moves next door and as time goes on they begin to fall in love poppy made a promise to her grandmother to have 1,000 boy kisses and Rune has helped with that . They love each other so deeply. But Rune has to move back to Oslo and then him and poppy don’t talk for awhile until he moves back . You see poppy is dying but Rune is determined to make her time special. And he does he takes her to NYC . She becomes weaker and has days left they see the cherry blossoms and get to go to prom . She says goodbye and passes away. Rune got accepted into college in a photography program. The epiloge was sweet it was explained that Rune passed on and was to stay with poppy .

Quotes : When you find the boy that will be your forever always, every time you get an extra-special kiss from him, take out a heart. Write down where you were when you were kissed. Then when you’re a mamaw too, your grandbaby—your best buddy—can hear all about them, just like I’ve told you all about mine.

It was the third moment that defined my life. The night I found out I would lose the girl I loved. Knowing our moments together were numbered, I held on to her tighter, refusing to let go. She fell asleep doing exactly the same… …a powerful echo of who we used to be.

A reminder that we were Poppy and Rune. Somewhere under all the hurt and pain, under all the new layers we’d acquired, we were still here. In love. Two halves of one heart. And I didn’t care what anyone said about it.

I now realized why I had loved her so hard from being so young—so I had this time with her. Poppy believed her spirit always knew she’d die young. I was starting to

Why? Why do I have to lose you?” He shook his head and his face contorted in pain. “Because I can’t, Poppymin. I can’t watch you leave. I can’t bear the thought of not having you like this for the rest of our lives.”

I’ll see you in your dreams.” Trying to hold back my emotions, I rasped back, “I’ll see you in my dreams.” Poppy sighed, a peaceful smile gracing her face. Then Poppy closed her eyes, tilting her chin up for her final kiss, her hand squeezing mine.

Being loved by you was the biggest accomplishment of my life. I didn’t have long and I had nowhere near enough time to be with you how I wanted. But in those years, in my final months, I knew what real love was.

Rule number one of writing a restaurant review: don’t fraternize with the chef. Seems pretty simple. It’s awfully difficult, though, when said bad boy chef insists on following me around campus. Milo may be a charmer, but he’s in for a rude awakening when I don’t fall at his feet like everyone else on the planet. I’ve got a student newspaper to run and finals to ace. Besides, doesn’t he have anything better to do with his time?

Milo

My manager keeps calling, my publisher is pissed, and I’ve got a restaurant launch to oversee. So, why not throw in a little bit of obsession over a terrible review of my food? Sure, I’ve got nothing but time. Don’t get me wrong; Cecily can write whatever she wants to in that college newspaper of hers. She may not like me now, but that’s not going to stop me from making her mine.

What’s on the menu?

Review: I loved the last story Cecily and Milo are so cute . So Cecily ends up reviewing Milo restaurant and he ends up wanting to get to know her . They have a date and he ends up coming to the cabin on Christmas and they leave to have some sexy fun. And then they end up getting sick and Cecily ends up pregnant after the baby is born they get married. I loved this story and all the guys in this series .

Book Review: Taking shots Toni Aleo

Taking Shots (Assassins, #1)Taking Shots by Toni Aleo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

July 16-21

In Toni Aleo’s exhilarating Loveswept debut, the first in a series featuring the hockey hunks of the Nashville Assassins, a reformed bad boy helps a charming, willful woman face off against the demons of her past.

No matter how hard she tries, Elleanor Fisher never thinks she’s good enough, from her job to her weight to her love life. After enduring years of abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend, Elli has been drifting through life in a daze. Until, that is, she meets Shea Adler on a promotional shoot for the NHL’s Nashville Assassins. Before Elli knows what’s happening, the gorgeous Shea breaks the ice and shatters her world.

A brilliant athlete inside the rink, Shea Adler is tired of the life he’s living outside of it: the women, the money, the drinking. But everything changes when he meets Elli. After laying eyes on this feisty, witty, beautiful woman, he feels like he’s just taken the hardest hit of his life. No matter how skeptical she is, Shea knows they are meant to be together—if only he can convince Elli to put her insecurities aside before she misses out on a shot at love.

Review : I love sports romance and this was so cute this is about Ellie and Shea. Ellie is a photographer and Shea is a hockey player . Ellie is a big fan of Shea and she was taking promotional pics for the team which is how they met . Ellie gets hired by Shea sister to do a party which Shea asks Ellie on a date. Ellie is a bit self conscious of her body see she for sick and gained a lot of weight and now she’s lots a lot her ex was a piece of shit and she’s still dealing with that. Shea is so good to Ellie and even waits to have sex with her until she’s ready since it’s been six years . Things are moving fast in their relationship. Ellie mother and sister are fucking assholes they treat Ellie like trash. I love Ellie father and uncle though . See Ellie uncle owns the hockey team Shea plays for. Shea throws an amazing pride and prejudices birthday party for Ellie. Shea wants to marry Ellie but things go bad fast Ellie sister sets it up to look like Shea cheated and Ellie believes it . Two months of not seeing each other and Ellie finally gets the truth from her sister her mother made her do what a bitch . Shea asks Ellie to marry him and she says yes I loved this book can’t wait to read the next one .

Quotes :

Jesus, you’re gonna be the death of me, baby.” “I could say the same about you, Shea,”

Baby, when you’re in the room, you’re the only thing that has my attention.”

She had never felt the urge to rip a man’s clothes off, but ripping Shea Adler’s jeans off would be a magical experience

No, I usually sleep naked, but I’m not going to scare you with all this,” he said, waving his hand in front of his body.

“I apologize if this comes out rude, Olivia, but what the hell is wrong with you people? That woman is the most beautiful person I have ever met. There is no weight issue. She’s perfect. And her career, I mean, do you even know that she is one of the most prestigious photographers in Nashville? Why are you guys doing this to her?” He shook his head. “You all have issues.”

Elli couldn’t help but laugh when she saw he didn’t have the traditional shoes of the nineteenth century, but his Chucks. “My Mr. Darcy, Adler-style, huh?”

Shea was ready for his forever with Elli. “Marry me, Elli.” Elli gasped as her hand came over her mouth; knowing what he was about to do and actually hearing him do it were two different things. As she looked into his eyes, he spoke. “Don’t ever leave me again. Love only me, for the rest of our lives. Move into our house, make love to me every night, and make babies with me, Elli. Please, because being with you made me a better man, and I could never love anyone the way I love you. So, please, marry me.”
