On a bitter cold winter night Bailey Walsh’s family was killed in a traffic accident. Two years later as she lives with her aunt and uncle in Southern California, Bailey is still plagued by the nightmares of that terrible night. Everywhere around her are reminders of what she lost. Even her aunt, in a cruel twist of fate, is not just her mom’s sister, but her identical twin. Babysitting Riley, a spunky two-year old, is a sweet distraction and one constant light in her life. One day as she takes Riley to the park she meets Collin McKenna, a senior at her high school and her life is changed forever as he helps her find herself and realize her life is worth living. As the romance between them grows her broken heart begins to heal. However, still nagging in the back of her conscious is the fear that her new found happiness could come crashing down and she could lose everything she loves, yet again. Outside forces begin to tear them apart and Bailey must learn to trust in herself and realize that she is worthy of happiness. That sometimes love and healing comes in unexpected forms.

what i thoughtI received a finished copy in exchange for an honest review from the author. It does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This is a coming of age romance story where our main character, Bailey has lost her entire family in an accident. It’s been 2 years since the deaths of her family and she is currently living with her aunt and uncle. Living life after everything was taken from her, to make it worse, her aunt is her mom’s identical twin. One day while taking Riley, a 2 year old she babysits for to the park, she runs into senior, Collin. He has completely changed her life the closer they get to each other. But when something comes between them, can they survive it?

Absolutely freaking loved every bit of this book! Definitely didn’t expect how devastating and sad this book was going to be. I don’t usually pay attention to synopsis’ because I just like going in blind. I knew this was going to be a clean romance that just bridges the NA genre. That’s what I liked most about it. This book was BEAUTIFUL! I cannot stress that enough. Melissa A. Hanson is such a talented writer! I was worried going in that I wasn’t going to like it because all I’ve been reading for the past year is pretty much NA romance. Nope, this book was beyond words amazing. I just get giddy thinking of this book to be honest. This book definitely does not get the love and appreciation it should have.

I was getting some serious anxiety towards the end because I wasn’t sure how it was going to play out.That’s how completely immersed I was into this story. Books like these are ones I never forget. Even almost a month after reading the book and writing my review right now, I remember everything that happened. This is one of those that will leave an imprint on you.

Loved it all, especially the extra point of view, I thought that was awesome having that. We don’t just get Bailey and Collin’s point of view, but another character we meet in the book. I won’t spoil who it is, I want to leave that a secret and for you to figure out! :)

Recommend to everyone! This can be read for those wanting to start bridging to NA romance. This is perfect for that! There is no sex and for someone wanting to dip those toes and test it out, this is perfect! It’s perfect for all ages honestly. This book, I just cannot contain my love for it! Your going to love it and fall for the characters!!

reading stackWHAT I FINISHED:

saved still surviving

  • Saved by Kelly Elliott: I thankfully survived my mini anxiety and heart attacks while reading! I’m very shocked to be honest. the amount of stress and frustration I felt for this book was unreal. But that totally makes it sound like I hated this book, but really is actually the opposite. Yes, this book drove me absolute bonkers, but I FREAKING LOVED IT! I loved that we got 6 characters perspectives in one! Last book I’m pretty sure was only 4. I thought it was going to be the same for this one, nope! Added 2 more! … Well actually brought back 2 I should say. ;) Gunner is still my favorite and to be honest, it might stay that way. He has dug into my heart sooo deep, I can’t let him go or let anyone else in. He’s trapped with my other babes. ;) Ari and Jeff as you’ve probably already met if you’ve read the first have a rocky relationship from the beginning and OHH LORD is it even rockier (not even sure that’s a word but it is now) in this one! I’m at a loss for words. But I do need a mini break before I continue to the 3rd. I’m picking up a different book next. Once I finish that one, I’ll move onto the book that will honestly probably drive me into an anxiety attack.. or heart attack… whichever decides to get me first. That epilogue… Why. Just…. WHY.
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Still Surviving by A.M. Johnson: I swear, this lady is too talented with writing it’s unbelievable. I loved Seth since he was introduced. He was such an interesting aide character and very mysterious. I was so excited to read his story and of course learn about Tiffany! I loved their story and to say how excited I am for Colby and Cam is an understatement. I have grown sooo incredibly close to these characters, I can’t believe after Cam and Colby’s novella, it will be over… All these characters hold a place in my heart. I know I probably say this alot, but I’m serious. With Mrs. Johnson’s writing and understanding all these characters, I have completely fallen for all of them. Todd is still my favorite and he’s the one that surprised me the most. Loved Tiff and Seth. Loved this book. Love A.M. Johnson. Love this series. Love everything with this series! :)
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆

CURRENTLY READING:

making faces he will be my ruin

I have all intentions of finishing both of these today. I’m loving both books and I’m on the final stretch for both. :)

WHAT’S UP NEXT:

faithful believe a wanted christmas let me go

Hopefully I’ll get to all 3 this coming week, but we will see! :D

About DARE ME:

Five coworkers.

Four drinks.

Three glances.

Two fleeting smiles.

One dare.

A dare that will change my life.

That’s all it takes to send me plummeting into the arms of the mysterious Holt Hamilton. Behind his crystal blue eyes is a secret, one that screams danger but calls to me anyway.

My name is Saige Phillips.

I never walk away from a dare.

 

 

DareMe

 

 

EXCERPT:

“I was watching you, Saige. I enjoy watching you.” Maybe that was bold of me, but I don’t care.

She audibly gasps, her chest rising and falling with each quick breath she takes.

I fix my eyes on hers and continue. “And I saw you watching me.”

Her upper lip twitches as she thinks of a sarcastic comeback. I can see the vein in her neck throbbing, along with the beat of her pulse before she finally whispers, “We shouldn’t do this.” She pulls a green olive off the toothpick floating in her martini, then she pops it into her mouth. The green olive matches her eyes perfectly.

I watch her shift uncomfortably in her chair for a few seconds before I respond. “Why not?”

“Because you’re my boss.” So naïve, sweet little Saige is.

“I’m actually not,” I tell her.

She frowns. “You own the company I work for, same thing.”

I clarify, “I’m part owner of the company you work for.”

She sighs. “Holt, this is just drinks. That’s all.” But her eyes tell me she wants more.

I lean closer to her. “It’s never just drinks, Saige.”

Synopsis

Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.

Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.

But with their friends paired off, they’re left alone more and more. Rose is determined to keep him friendzoned — doesn’t matter that he stares at her with a smolder that drops all panties in a ten foot radius. She’s over him, and she’ll prove it by getting back into the dating game, Patrick be damned.

Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him.

The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.

Release Day Launch & Giveaway: Dirty Tricks by Emma Hart

DTreleasedaybanner

 

 

Chelsey Young’s dad was a rock star. Glamorous, right? But late nights, frequent travelling, and watching endless women rub their bodies against Lukas Young’s in a bid for his attention wasn’t exactly how Chelsey planned to spend her senior year of high school.

So when Kye Burke, of the ultra-sexy band Dirty B, sets his sights on Chelsey, she figures the best way to get him off her back is by taking his sexy butt to bed.

But after one night together, Kye has no intention of staying away from Chelsey, especially when she’s kissing him one minute then pushing him away the next. From watching her father, Chelsey knows the rock star lifestyle that Kye leads—being away for long stretches of time, girls throwing themselves at him on the regular, shirtless photos showing up in his inbox ten times a day. She wants no part of it.

Kye is determined for Chelsey to get to know him, the real him behind the rock star persona. But that isn’t so easy when Kye’s schedule will take him away for days, weeks, even a month or two at a time, which is a dealbreaker for Chelsey. Long distance means temptation to stray, and infidelity was the reason her own parents split. She knows it’s not fair to project her own insecurities onto Kye, but some things are unavoidable.

But Kye Burke isn’t Lukas Young.

 

And, distance or not, he’s going to damn well prove it.

“What,” Chelsey exclaims, “the hell is that?”

With a wide smile spreading across my face, I shove my hands in my pockets like a teenage boy and look at her. “A Christmas tree.”

“Are those . . . penises?”

“Technically, dildos.”

“Like real ones?” She jerks her alarmed gaze to me.

“No. Just plastic.”

She flicks her tongue across her lips. “Uh-huh. Why do you have penises across your Christmas tree?”

“Because he’s an immature little bastard,” Leila answers for me.

“You didn’t stop me,” I shoot back.

“Hell no I didn’t. I cannot wait to see Mom’s face when she sees this!”

“When she sees what?” Mom’s voice creeps through the house ominously, and the close of the door after her sounds like the signal that I should run away.

“Uh . . . I’m just gonna go . . .to the store. . . .” I shuffle toward the door that connects the front room with the kitchen.

Chelsey lifts her eyebrows in amusement, and Dad grabs the back of my shirt so I can’t escape.

You wouldn’t think I was twenty-four. For numerous reasons, obviously.

“Kye Burke, why are there tiny penises on my Christmas tree?”

Her voice is calm. Really calm. I’m even more convinced that I should run. “Merry Cock-mas?”

Mom’s expression is somewhere between insane amusement and extreme frustration.

“I’m just gonna come back later . . .” Chelsey whispers, edging toward the living room door. “When there are less . . . cocks.”

“Good idea! I’ll come with you.” I wrestle out of Dad’s grip and dart behind him, through the kitchen, and into the hall.

Chelsey laughs and grabs my arm, dragging me back into the room. “I said I was going. I didn’t say you were escaping this cock-up.”

“Great choice of words,” Dad chuckles.

Mom pinches the bridge of her nose. “I should have known that when three boys left, one boy would have to make the impression of three,” she says, mostly to herself. “I should have known that the one who never left his little peep alone at two would one day decorate my tree in cocks.”

“Mom! What the hell?” I sputter.

“I should have known that his ball-hoarding obsession at six was a sign of things to come,” she sighs heavily and drops her hand. “After all, there’s one in every boyband. I thought I was ready for this.” Then, she turns to me. “Kye, son, we love you anyway, but I have to ask. Are you gay?”

Chelsey lets go of me, and laughter rips from her. Leila laughs, too, her book falling to the floor. Dad covers his face with his hands, and Mom just stands there in the middle of the

room, her eyes wide. Her hands are now clasped in front of her sympathetically, and the tiny upturn of the right side of her mouth explains it all.

“Well played, Mother,” I say reluctantly, walking back toward the front door. “Well. Played.”

WHAT I FINISHED:

still life still water wanted

  • Still Life by A.M. Johnson: My sister always pointed this out in the Harry Potter movies. if you look at the intros, you can tell how darker they go. Sorcerer’s Stone is light and happy, then by Deathly Hallows it’s dark and dreary and you know something major is going to happen… This is basically Still Life. It starts fairly light, then as the book progresses you learn about Sawyer and Elizabeth with their pasts and I can’t help but make that little connection. That’s the best way to describe the progression of this book. I’m completely blown away from this book. I knew it wasn’t a light read, but this book definitely took me by surprise. By the last 100 pages, I LITERALLY could not put the book down. I was completely immersed in this story and had to know what was going to happen next. Sawyer and Elizabeth both have pasts that are not pretty at all. The strength that Elizabeth had was unbelievable. To have what happened to her and come out the person she is now is aspiring. I seriously loved this book, but I definitely need some time to digest my thoughts. I’ll have more thoughts on my full review!
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Still Water by A.M. Johnson: Love, love, LOVED this book. I definitely need time to gather my thoughts. Todd is definitely my favorite and before this book, I wasn’t a big fan of him because of something that happened in Still Life… OHHH did he make up for that!! I’ll have more thoughts later.
    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Wanted by Kelly Elliott: Absolutely loved this! Gunner and Ellie were so stinking cute together. I can’t help but giddy over these 2. I loved also having Ari and Jeff’s POV’s. I wasn’t expecting to see their prospectives. I am starting to see why everyone raves about Kelly’s books. I plan to binge this entire series. I’m the QUEEN at never continuing series and one of my goals this year is to stop that. We will see!
    Loved! One thing that bugged me, but don’t want to spoil anything. Kind of a silly thing, but felt it was excessive. Seemed like it happened quite a bit.
    Ugh, Gunner… seriously… Why can’t guys like him be real!?

    • FINAL RATING: ☆☆☆☆½

CURRENTLY READING:

saved making faces

I’m currently (trying) to binge the entire Wanted series by Kelly Elliott and I’m on the second book, Saved currently. One of my reading goals is to try keep up with series. I’m literally the QUEEN of uncompleted series. I’ll read the first book and more times than not, wait months or even a couple years to pick up the sequel… I want to try and stop this habit as best I can. Making Faces is my audiobook for the week. I haven’t been listening to audiobooks much in the last month. I started a new job, so I’m not driving hardly at all now. At the time, I was driving 7+ hours a week. But with classes back in session for me, I’ll be able to listen to more! :)

My life is a secret.
His life is dangerous.
We’re both stubborn, calculating, and controlling.
Mark Dixon doesn’t know what he’s getting into. He doesn’t know his games could cost us our lives. I have to do what is necessary to keep us alive, and that means guarding my heart.
But I know I’m defenseless against him, and in the end, he’ll force me to surrender.

what i thoughtI received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review from the author. It does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

If any of you make me choose between Twilight, Muffin and Dreamboat, I might cry. Usually I have a favorite in a series, but I LITERALLY CANNOT pick, I love these 3 men so so much and all for very different reasons! Asking that kind of question is like trying to ask what my favorite book/music/movie is… I can’t ever pick.

I’m so glad this wasn’t a cliffhanger- if you’re familiar with Corinne’s previous 2 duets, you’ll know those have cliffhangers, this one does not. Like the previous 2, this is intertwined. This follows Mark and Charlie – both characters we meet in Consolation Duet. (Mark before in Belonging Duet). Even though I read backwards and read the Consolation Duet first, I have been absolutely beyond excited to read Mark’s story – he was HILARIOUS.

Because this is a standalone, I don’t want to give too much away by doing a synopsis. I think the one above can give you something. I do recommend reading the other 2 duets first since they will make an appearance in this one. Unless you don’t mind being spoiled (some things from both couples books get mentioned), by all means read this first. But you should meet Jackson and Liam first! Mark makes plenty of appearances! ;)

As I’ve already mentioned several times just in this review, I have been so excited for Mark’s story. When you meet him in the previous books he just never seemed the guy to want to settle down, until Defenseless. I can sit here and type why I love Mark so much… But then that would lead into talking about Jackson and Liam too. I can’t gush about these books enough!!!

Mark and Charlie are very alike and different at the same time. Charlie doesn’t make it easy for Mark; their banter was honestly probably my favorite thing. I just about highlighted every conversation. This is one of those where you start laughing out of nowhere — not in your head kind of laughter.

Romance, action, humor and suspense… What more could you want in a book?! :)
