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: Game On by Lynn Stevens

Book Review!

36054491

Title: Game On
Author: Lynn Stevens
Publication: September 18th 2017
Pages: 295
Synopsis:

Olivia Dawson doesn’t make mistakes. Unless those mistakes are a tall, broad-shouldered, cocky baseball player named Devon Miller. Devon and Olivia have been competing in their engineering classes since freshman year, and he seems to want nothing more than to get under her skin and shake her confidence. Unless you count that one time when he got under more than just her skin…

Now, they’re pitted against each other for a coveted internship that could open tons of doors for each of them. Only one of them can win. And they’re both ready to fight dirty if they need to.

Could Devon be playing for more than just his own gain—could he be after her heart?

Olivia is about to find out.

MY RATING: 2/5 STARS

I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Where do I start with reviewing Game on? Okay, let’s begin with our heroine, Olivia. I’m going to give major kudos to Lynn Stevens for trying to create a strong and smart female heroine trying to survive in a male dominated career field such as aviation engineering. While the idea of Olivia was perfect because why not support fella females in diverse and hard roles, she still came out to be a character worth despising.

BOOK REVIEW: When the Scoundrel Sins by Anna Harrington

Book Review!

33296581

Title: When the scoundrel sins
Author: Anna Harrington
Publication: August 29th 2017
Pages: 352
Synopsis:

A MOST INDECENT PROPOSAL

Annabelle Green needs a husband-and quickly. To inherit the only home she’s ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to . . .

Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking . . . and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He’ll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can’t control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames-of wicked desire.

MY RATING: 4.5/ 5 STARS

I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is exactly what romance is. This is everything a romance should be. It should be filled with the right amount of love-hate, sexual tension, and the feeling of desire between two characters that make them destined for each other. When the Scoundrel Sins by Anna Harrington made me fall in love with historical romance all over again.

BOOK REVIEW: Animal by Jenika Snow

Book Review!

35524393

Title: Animal
Author: Jenika Snow
Publication: August 22nd 2017
Pages: 80
Synopsis:

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.

MY RATING: 4/5 STARS

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve been a fan of Jenika Snow’s work and especially Real Man series since the beginning of last year. They’re a fantastic series featuring short novellas filled with bad ass heroes and heroines that you can definitely relate to.
