REVIEW: Nothing But A Dare By Molly O’Hare

REVIEW: Nothing But A Dare By Molly O’Hare

SYNOPSIS

Nothing But a Dare is a second chance, enemies to lovers rom-com with a curvy, will punch you in the throat heroine, and a hero that will push every button she has for fun. Oh, and did I mention there’s a cat that wears turtleneck sweaters?

After what could possibly be the world’s worst morning, the last thing Abbie expected to see as she walked into her meeting was her childhood nemesis.

Hunter. Freaking. James.

The title of world’s worst morning now seemed like an understatement.

When Abbie walked into the conference room looking like a complete mess, and still killed her presentation, Hunter knew he’d made the right decision signing on with WCM Advertising. He was there for one reason, and one reason only. Abbie was going to be his, even if he had to dare her every step of the way.

Game on.

MY REVIEW

** I was given the ARC in exchange for my Honest Review **

This is a sweet, childhood love that in a way makes no sense but, makes perfect sense all at the same time. Abbie is working her way up the ladder at an add agency when her very first true heart break walks in effectively derails her life. He had no intention of that, all Hunter wanted was to tell her that he had come to terms and loved her.

But old habits die hard and they fell into an old rhythm of teasing and dares. After an impromptu work trip that forced Abbie to face all her fears things change between the two of them and the truth comes to light.

I love books that have such a deep rooted love that goes far back between the leading people. But this one does have parts that are off putting. While the story itself is amazing, but how Abbies carries herself bothers me, no matter the feelings inside a professional woman would not launch herself across the room at someone and start wrestling with them. Her character bothered me in the sense that it feels like she never really did grow up.

That may be off putting for some readers but it was ok enough for me to set that aside and read the book and enjoy it all for what it is.

I do recommend this Book to others who love childhood romances, growing up and soft sweet ones.

She’s off limits. 
She’s my best friend’s little sister. 
She’s my nanny. 
Billie’s a golden drop of sexy sun on a grey autumn day, tempting me into the light and a life full of possibilities. 
A life not meant for us.

MY REVIEW

* I WAS GIVEN AN ARC COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW *

This book sucked me in from the first chapter! There were many things that had me humming and hawing before I read it that I wasn’t overly sure that I would like it, but my love for the single dad books and my love of rockstars, made me try it and I was not disappointed in the least!

The Hop of the page instant connection between Billie and Max made your heart bleed for them in what they needed to go through. There was also the amazing friendship between Cal and Max, as well as Cals wife that made things work as well. There was a great build to all the characters involved that just kept you in. It also has been a long while since there was a character that I just plain didn’t like in a book, no matter the issues they were going through.

Normally I am ok with the viewpoints being split between the two main character, and anything more bothers me, but the slight inclusion of others has only added to the depth of what is going on. I like how the address the age gap, but they don’t revolve around it. They look into the laws and make it a realistic and not over dramatized even thought in reality most celebrity new is big like this and they are using public image as a real excuse.

I do not like how there is a loose end with the father of one of the lead conflict characters… When you get a chance to read it, let me know if you agree.

Thanks for reading,

COVER REVEAL: Great And Precious Things By Rebecca Yarros

COVER REVEAL: Great And Precious Things By Rebecca Yarros

How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.

But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we’re willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

REVIEW: Sin For You By Sherilee Gray (Rocktown Ink #2)

REVIEW: Sin For You By Sherilee Gray (Rocktown Ink #2)

SYNOPSIS

My best friend’s sister is back in town, and while she’s here, she’s under my protection. Quinn Parker had her heart broken, and I’ll make sure no one hurts her again.

But when she starts looking around for a hot, no-strings distraction, I can’t stand back and do nothing. No one is touching this vibrant beauty…but me.

She’s the woman of my dreams, but Quinn wants a good time, not a long time. We play by her rules: no one finds out, no one gets hurt. 

I have to keep it casual because an ex-con like me can’t offer her forever…even if I want so much more.

MY REVIEW

***** I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THE ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW *****

This is seems like it would be a slow burn as most of the ‘Brothers Best Friends” books I have read are but there is so much more to this one that make me love it!

This book is a flip to the normal conventions that I like, mainly because its Bull who has taking over the Pining part as opposed to Quinn. Now I know that is a generalization of these type of books but hold on with me here. Quinn has always been attracted to Bull, because he was older, better looking and treated her with kindness that he normally did not show other people. But that’s as far as it was for Quinn in the start, but Bull… Bull was the one who was torn for his attraction for Quinn and his loyalty to his best friend and her brother.

After she had a terrible break up and needed to get away he offered her a job at his bar and promised to look out for her. He did that more so out of his ned to keep her close and watch her as she navigated mending her broken heart. When she gets mad at him for basically scaring away any guy she met to fulfilling a needs she has, he takes on that role. He is the one to fill that need, and she accepts because of her long time crush.

Then we see more from Bulls side where he wants more and more from her. He is not happy being the booty call, the means to an end and wants her in more ways. But he also is battling with demons from his past, as well as issues with his own self worth. I love seeing it from his perspective and seeing the male lead on this side more than the female. The male just trying to sway her from casual to something more.

I do highly recommend this one!

REVIEW: Wild Steamy Hook-Up By Piper Rayne

REVIEW: Wild Steamy Hook-Up By Piper Rayne

SYNOPSIS

He’s the quiet brooding guy who’s owned my heart since I was sixteen but has refused to claim it. 

I’m the naïve woman who believes that someday our time will come.

I just didn’t realize that someday would include waking up in Vegas with a raging hangover and a ring on my finger.

If we believed in fate, maybe one of us would’ve trusted that something more powerful than ourselves interceded because our love is one of tangled vines. As twisted and frayed as they’ve become over the years, they’ve never broken. 

An annulment seemed like the easy way out. We should’ve known it wouldn’t be fate that intervened, but our Italian Mamas. They can deliver Oscar-worthy performances when heaping on the guilt.

We thought it’d be easy to pretend to be a happily married couple in front of our families for three months and then say we gave it our best shot and go our separate ways.

But nothing is easy when it comes to Dominic Mancini and me. Nothing.

MY REVIEW

★ ★ ★ ★ I WAS GIVEN AN ARC COPY IN EXCHANGED FOR MY HONEST REVIEW ★ ★ ★ ★

Holy Banana Sandwiches Ladies and Germs! I tried to sneak this out of Piper and Rayne much earlier than this but to no avail, but man was this worth the wait! I have never been disappointed in anything these ladies have put out, but they are masters of the tease….

I have liked the air of mystery surrounding Dom from the start, when Enzo was talking about him in the Blue Collar Brothers, I like how we do get glimpses of his real personality, quickly covered up with a sassy smart ass remark, while we watched Enzo and Carm become the Unicorns to their women.

I loved learning more about the eldest Mancini that hid away, what he was sneaking away doing, who really was hidden in that thing he called a heart. I loved learning why he was the way he was and what he was always about Val, or in the other books Mystery-Woman-Booty-Call.

The Love Dom and Val have for eachother is complicated and amazing, truly a once in a lifetime kind of feeling that makes you feel their sadness and pain. There have been so many variables in their past and present that have dictated, or so they thought, why they can never be together for the long term. I was nice to also see the parallel of it fall alongside the Blue Collar Brothers, their cousins, and see how slightly similar Dom and Vals story is to Luca and Laurens.

I am also a sucker for the single parent books and that is why I loved Val so much too, she wants this but she is balancing her wants, her needs and the wants and needs of her son, who is a sassy teenager. She also wants to but doesn’t want to, have to take in to account her Ex-Husband and his mild celebrity and the slight complications that come with that.

I do recommend this book, the only reason why it go 4/5 bly stars is because, there were some parts that included flashbacks that kinds seemed unneeded, but that is my personal opinion.

Thank you!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, thanks for reading my bio to check me out! Has anyone told you, you’re beautiful and amazing lately? Just in case they haven’t, I am!

So you want to know a little more about me? Well, okay then. Much like any author out there, sleeping doesn’t come easily to me. As it turns out, I’ve got horrible insomnia. Like, scary horrible. Anyway, when I was younger, to help myself fall asleep I’d tell myself stories. Each night I’d pick up where the story left off previously until it was complete. Then I started writing them down. A few months later, here I am, sharing my lack of sleep with all of you. Who said the stories in our heads can’t be fun for others?

REVIEW: Down Too Deep By J. Daniels

REVIEW: Down Too Deep By J. Daniels

SYNOPSIS

Fans of Christina Lauren and Colleen Hoover will love this sexy and emotional fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Dirty Deeds series.

Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell has spent nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with little Marley, but he doesn’t know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage throws him a lifeline.

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nate’s adorable two-year-old, and wants to help Nathan however she can. Soon, attachments are made, forcing Jenna and her kids into new territory. And the closer everyone becomes, the more right it feels.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts, both big and little, are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing someone is losing them all.

MY REVIEW

* * I WAS GIVEN A CHANCE TO READ THE ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *

This is a sweet, honest and amazing story about relationships after the death of a loved one, and a sweet and truly emotional tribute to those who are dating as a single parent. There is a lot of raw emotions in this that even got to me on more than on occasion. There are 3 key players in this relationship or flirt-mance, and they aren’t even the adults, but their happiness is the key and lynchpin that keeps this romance alive and wants us to keep rooting for them.

I love the way that the guilt that Nate feels about the death of his wife, about not being there for his infant daughter is portrayed, its not the main them and doesn’t overtake the book and relationship. But we as the reader know it is there, those involved know it is there but its also not the main issue or theme of this book.

I love Jenna and how strong she is for her kids, but is also not afraid to show how vulnerable she is about the past with the twins father. How she handled it, and where she is in her feelings towards that man. I love how they needed each other at that point in time and never really knew exactly what to expect from the friendship and bond that they had started to form.

The points I did not like were how quickly Nate was to trust Jenna with his child full time and how he took advantage of her kind heart during this situation, him knowing full well she had her won two children to care for.

This was a great slow burn friends to lovers story, that I HIGHLY recommend to those who love single parents stories, friends to lovers, heck we can even call this an office romance. It slow sensual, the feels jump right off the page at you.

Please check it out!!
