Title: Top 10
Author: Katie Cotugno
Publication: October 3rd 2017
Pages: 320
Synopsis:

Ryan McCullough and Gabby Hart are the unlikeliest of friends. Introverted, anxious Gabby would rather do literally anything than go to a party. Ryan is a star hockey player who can get any girl he wants—and does, frequently. But against all odds, they became not only friends, but each other’s favorite person. Now, as they face high school graduation, they can’t help but take a moment to reminisce and, in their signature tradition, make a top ten list—counting down the top ten moments of their friendship:

10. Where to begin? Maybe the night we met.
9. Then there was our awkward phase.
8. When you were in love with me but never told me…
7. Those five months we stopped talking were the hardest of my life.
6. Through terrible fights…
5. And emotional makeups.
4. You were there for me when I got my heart broken.
3. …but at times, you were also the one breaking it.
2. Above all, you helped me make sense of the world.
1. Now, as we head off to college—how am I possibly going to live without you?

MY RATING: 4/5

I received an arc from Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review.

Let’s start this review off with me saying that I love Katie’s works. I adored How to Love, and yes, 99 days was kind of problematic, and I didn’t really read her other release from this year, Fireworks, yet but I still hold onto the fact that she will be one of my automatic buys. Have you seen the cover designs of her books? Granted, I shouldn’t be purchasing a book based on it’s cover art because the graphic designer does not affect the contents of the book but fellow booknerds, we know we’re on the same page when we say a prettier cover definitely holds our interest.

BOOK REVIEW: Without Merit by Colleen Hoover

Book Review!

33280872

Title: Without Merit
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publication: October 3rd 2017
Pages: 359
Synopsis:

In Colleen Hoover’s gripping novel, reminiscent of the bestselling works of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes, a young woman decides to reveal the dark secrets of her seemingly-happy family before she leaves them behind, but when her escape plan fails, she must deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth.

MY RATING: 4.5/5 STARS

I was generously provided an ARC from Simon and Schuster in exchange for an honest review.

Where do I begin with a Colleen Hoover book review? If you’re new to Colleen Hoover and have not read any books of hers then you probably need to grab a seat, drink some water, and get comfortable because there is ALWAYS so much to discuss. Her plots and characters are not something easily digested in on sitting. Most of the times, it leaves you thinking and thinking about motivations of characters, their flaws, and their actions. You have to kind of look at everything layer by layer in order to really appreciate something Colleen Hoover writes. This review won’t probably do it justice because I’m sure I’ll forget to express something but I’m going to try my best.

Excerpt:

Ember

Jackson Cane tastes like red-hot cinnamon, salt water, and sin.

When he concentrates, his long fingers twist in the back of his dark hair, right at the base of his neck, and he tugs.

Tugs… tugs…

I like to weave my fingers between his and pull.

Then ocean-blue eyes blink up to mine sending electricity humming in my veins. He smiles. I smile, and it isn’t long before our lips touch. I climb onto his lap in a straddle as I open my mouth, and his delicious tongue finds mine heating every part of my body. Our kisses are languid and deep, chasing and tasting. We sizzle like fireworks on a hot summer night…

BOOK PROMO: Animal by Jenika Snow

 

 

 

 


Being bad never felt so good.


RYE

I’d been called bad, dangerous … a criminal. And I didn’t deny it. Everyone knew it, especially the one woman I wanted but couldn’t have.
I should’ve stayed away, should’ve left her alone. Jessa was the daughter of my business partner, too young for me, too innocent.
But I wanted her in the worst of ways, and no amount of self-control could keep me from her.
I wanted to claim every part of her, make her know what it was like to have a real man between her thighs.
And I’d have her.

JESSA

He was older than me, dangerous, masculine in the best of ways. I saw the way he watched me, the looks he gave me when he thought I wasn’t paying attention.
Rye wanted me, even if he’d never do anything about it.
I was just the virgin daughter of his business partner, not someone he’d ever get involved with. But that didn’t stop me from lusting after him, from picturing his big body over mine, his hands touching me until I cried out for more.
But I was tired of waiting. I would make the first move, and damn the consequences.


Warning: The hero of this story might seem like the “bad guy,” but no fears because it’s a safe read, there isn’t any OW drama, and he only has eyes for one woman. It’s a hot and dirty story, short and to the point, and exactly what you’ve come to expect in the Real Man series.
