Blog Tour: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

ABOUT THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO:

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

Written with Reid’s signature talent for “creating complex, likable characters” (Real Simple), this is a fascinating journey through the splendor of Old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it takes—to face the truth.

MY REVIEW: 

Thank you to Simon and Schuster/Atria and NetGalley for providing an ARC for an honest review.

FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR. This book is everything. I sobbed for a good 30 minutes for the last 10-15% of the book. This book was nothing like I expected it to be and it was everything I expected in a TJR book. This book was so much more than the seven husbands in her life and the romance, it was about her life and the struggles she went through. And let me tell you, it wasn’t an easy life for her.

You never know what route TJR will take with her stories. She always takes you by surprise and usually always leaves you hanging and wondering what is going to happen next.

I would classify this more as woman’s lit and not romance. I’m not one to read that genre, but since last night I have been SWEARING up and down by this book trying to get other friends to read it. (and failing miserably). I just want to tell them what happens so they will understand how much I loved this book. But I don’t want to spoil anything for them because it’ll just ruin the entire story. But how exactly do you push people to read this amazing book!? That is the question because I know a lot of people will adore this book like I did. Some may not like it and there’s nothing wrong with that! It’s still an amazing story from a VERY talented writer!

This is now my 3rd time reading one of her books and I’m still swearing by her books. Though, now this one takes the cake of the other 2 and is now one of my favorite books probably of all time. The other 2 books I’m referencing to is Maybe in Another Life and One True Loves. This book is so beautiful, so real, and very emotional. I cannot stress how much I need people to read this because this is just one of those everyone needs to read and you will see after reading. Promise.

Review: Kingdom by A.M. Johnson

Kingdom Ebook Cover

*jumps up and down* OH MY GOD. I literally cannot with Johnson’s writing. I literally can’t. She’s one of those fairy tale type of writers I get entranced… I can just gush all day just about her writing. Seriously. SO GOOD.

That’s all you need. :)

This is the sequel to Possession which follows Declan’s older brother, Liam. Can be read as a standalone, but some parts about Declan’s story will be revealed and will spoil Possession for you. I recommend reading the first one!

This is such a quick, fast paced book. This will pull on some heart strings and may drive you crazy if you’re not into angst. But it’s not too bad. ;) I swear, seriously. The only thing you need from this review is her writing. That’s all I need to say. And Liam. Liam, definitely. :)

Review: All That I Am by Rachel Brookes

412dd760a6cbc20192e51c7d2b8717e9e7c4c8d1

Where do I even start!? I absolutely adore this book and Rachel as an author. I’ve read 2 of her others; Be My December and Be My Temptation (which Ben, our MC will appear in!!!!). I was so excited to see this book and to get my hands on it. Ben was literally everything. SOO swoon-worthy. I can just gush all day about him. He’s literally the BEST…

Such a page turner filled with intense scenes. I’m gonna keep this short and sweet; because you just need to read it. ;) You only need that cover to make the decision to read; then Ben will totally be worth it… Just you wait. ;)

Cover Reveal: The Catch by K. Bromberg

We are very excited to bring you the highly anticipated cover for THE CATCH by New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg releasing on JUNE 29th!

 

 

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

Blog Tour: Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

shacking-up-helena-hunting-709x1024

I’ve read a couple of Helena’s books in the past and have loved them! This being no different. I love that there was still that humor that Helena is known for in this book because I was worried going in, the humor wouldn’t be there. I was wrong; because there were so many times I couldn’t help but burst out laughing. Or.. wanting to throw my Kindle and burn it because Bancroft has a FREAKING TARANTULA as a PET. Nope. Just nope. I praise Ruby because if it were me, the mention of even the tiniest spider has me running in the opposite direction for my life.

I also love the male characters Helena brings to life; they are always panty dropping material and Bancroft is definitely no exception to that.

This was definitely a slow burn type of book; but I promise it was worth it in the end. Just wait for Bancroft… I mean, that’s all you need right?! No further explanation!? LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!

I was also excited to see that this will not be the only book in this world; there will be a sequel that will follow (not sure on characters yet). I cannot wait to read the sequel whenever it releases!

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting.
