Review: Fall With Me

Hello, hello, my lovely readers!! I hope you’re all doing well! ❤
This morning, I’m here with a review of Fall With Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I really enjoyed the first book in her Wait for You series, but I think that the rest of the books in the series are increasingly worse in quality. I’ve already vowed that I wouldn’t read any more books in the series after the third book, but unfortunately, I really just can’t help myself sometimes. After finishing the book, I deeply regret my decision to pick up this installment. 
Happy reading!! 😉

Publication Date: March 2015
My Rating: 1.5 of 5 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

Review: Repeat

Goooood morning!! I hope you’re all having a phenomenal day so far! ❤
Today I’m brining you a review of my latest NA read, Repeat by Kylie Scott. This novel plopped its way into my email inbox via the Romance Read Club of the Month. I liked the premise and first chunk of the book, but I didn’t end up loving the second half of the story.
Happy reading!!

Review: A Touch of Darkness (Hades and Persephone #1)

Good morning, my lovely readers!! I hope you are all having a beautiful day!
Today I’m back with a review of my first fantasy novel of the year, A Touch of Darkness. As a big fan of both Greek mythology and retellings, I was super excited for this book, especially because of the countless positive reviews that I’ve seen. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed by it in pretty much every aspect.
I hope you enjoy!! 😉


A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair
Genre: New Adult – Romance, Fantasy, Retellings
Series: Hades and Persephone #1
Pages: 299
Publication Date: May 2019
My Rating: 1 of 5 stars
Read May 2021

Goodreads Synopsis:
A Modern Hades and Persephone Retelling
Persephone is the Goddess of Spring by title only. The truth is, since she was a little girl, flowers have shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hopes to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist.
Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible.
After a chance encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead and the terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever.
The bet does more than expose Persephone’s failure as a goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead grows—and it’s forbidden.

Review: Ten Tiny Breaths (Ten Tiny Breaths #1)

Hello!! I hope you’re all doing well. ❤
Today I’m back with a review of yet another supremely disappointing read from the new year.
Hope you enjoy!


Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker
Genre: New Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Series: Ten Tiny Breaths #1
Pages: 262
Publication Date: December 2012
My Rating: 1 of 5 stars
Read January 2021

Goodreads Synopsis:
Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. She just needs to keep it together until Livie is no longer a minor, and then they can get the hell out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.
Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair.
But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgiveable past of his own; one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness.

Review: It Ends With Us

Happy Monday!! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy. ❤
I’m here this evening with a review for a book that has been sitting on my Goodreads TBR for a long time. I’m really glad that I finally decided to hop on the Colleen Hoover bandwagon because this book was very different from what I had been expecting, but I was absolutely blown away.
Happy reading!


It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Genre: New Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 385
Publication Date: August 2016
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read December 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.
Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up
— she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

Review: Midnight Blue

Good afternoon and happy Sunday!! I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend so far. ❤
Today I’m sharing a quick review of a book that I started reading but had to DNF a couple of months ago.
Happy reading! 😉


Midnight Blue by L. J. Shen
Genre: New Adult – Contemporary, Romance, Music
Pages: 370
Publication Date: January 2018
My Rating: 1 of 5 stars (DNF)
Read June 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.
From bestselling author L.J. Shen, comes a new, standalone, contemporary romance.

Review: From Blood and Ash (Blood and Ash #1)

Good evening and happy Sunday!! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. ❤
Today I’m back with a review for what has got to be my most disappointing read of the year, perhaps even my life, and that is my favourite author, Jennifer L. Armentrout’s latest release, From Blood and Ash.
Happy reading!! 😉


From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: New Adult – Fantasy, Romance
Series: Blood and Ash #1
Pages: 634
Publication Date: March 2020
My Rating: 2 of 5 stars
Read July 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa.
A Maiden…
Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.
A Duty…
The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.
A Kingdom…
Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

Review: Punk 57

Hello, hello my lovely readers! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy! ❤
Today I am here with a review of the highly praised new adult romance, Punk 57. I had such high expectations for this novel, but quite frankly, I was disgusted and hated it.
Happy reading!! 😉


Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas
Genre: New Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 343
Publication Date: October 2016
My Rating: 1 of 5 stars
Read July 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
“We were perfect together. Until we met.”
Misha
I can’t help but smile at the words in her letter. She misses me.
In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.
It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…
And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.
Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.
We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?
Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?
F*ck it. I need to meet her.
I just don’t expect to hate what I find.
Ryen
He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.
Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his number or picture or something.
He could be gone forever.
Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.
