Fast, Flirty & Fun.

This was fast, flirty and fun. If you haven't read Where I Belong or it's companion, A Long Way From You, then you probably will be lost. I was a little a lost myself because I kept wondering who this Benson dude was and where in the world was...

Worthy Sequel

I really like the cover for this series a lot. FROZEN is the second installment in the TAKEN trilogy and like it's predecessor, it's well written, engaging and has several interesting plot twists. This took me awhile to get into and I'm not sure if it was because I...

A Nice Addition to the New Adult Genre

This was my first Tiffany King book. I enjoyed her writing and the story was definitely relateable. Brittni and Justin's story alternates between the now and two years prior, following the journey of how they met, fell in love and ultimately, fell apart. The now scenes are equal parts humorous...

Because Carson.

Don't Look Back is a skillfully crafted psychological thriller that will leave you guessing right up until the very end! (This book stressed the crap out of me, but in a good way.) Infused with strong characters, Armentrout's signature wit and romantic tension, it is unlike any of her previous...

Shawtastic Addition to the Series.

I've already told Sophie that Shaw is mine. I claim him. The rest of y'all can take a number and get in line. ;) While most girls her age are looking for love and a happily ever after, Emerson is looking for the next no-strings-attached hookup. Past experience has...

The Past Isn't Always The Way We Remember It

What I Liked: Of all of the characters in this series, Nash Donovan is the Marked Man I like the best. He's up front and honest without being a jerk and for the most part, he allows himself and those around him, the freedom to make and hopefully learn from,...

You'll Never Look At Leprechauns The Same Way Again!

I'll admit, I'm not a huge fan of Fae stories, but I am a fan of all things Irish and an even bigger fan of Wendy Higgins, and I enjoyed this! SEE ME is a fast paced, heartwarming story that is sweetly romantic and at times,...

Riveting, Heartbreaking, Perfect.

The Forever Song is the riveting conclusion to the Blood of Eden series that is sure to have you on the edge of your seat with your heart in your throat! Just like The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure, the latter of which I thought might literally kill...

Informative, Interesting, and Fun.

I'll admit, I got excited when I was offered to review this book for two reasons, 1) DIVERGENT is still one of my all-time favorite books despite the fact that I hated the ending of the series, and 2) I was expecting a book filled with lots of glossy pictures...

Not The Story I Was Expecting.

I had the audio version of this book. I like the cover for this book, it's depiction of the two girls that are the same height but different hair color is spot on. The fact that this is a story that centers around the best friend of the...

A Thrilling Sequel

I like the covers for this series a lot and it's not just because of the guy's lip ring. Not really. DECEIVING LIES, the sequel to FORGIVING LIES, isn't your average run of the mill "break up" book and I actually enjoyed it more than the first one....

Not What I Was Expecting, But Still Worth the Read.

This is one of those stories that is really hard to review because I don't want to spoil anything! I went into this with certain expectations. The title lends itself to so many different interpretations but this wasn't anything I imagined it would be either in plot or prose....

Engaging and Thought-provoking!

What I Loved: I was really curious about the "one night" premise. I was also a little nervous that Tiffany Schmidt might not be able to pull it off - telling a story that only covers a few hours but that is engaging, thought-provoking and heart-warming, but she did it!...

FANTASTIC ending to this part of the series!

Part Three picks up right where Part Two leaves off and it's easy to understand why Tessa feels the way she does. Hurt. Betrayed. Alone. When Tristan tries to explain his side of things, Tessa doesn't react the way he wishes she would. She just wants him to go...

NCIS for New Adult

This was my first Molly McAdams book and it was entertaining; I liked Kash and the plot varied a little from other NAs on the market, but it still didn't blow me away like I wanted it too. There were parts that seemed far fetched and the over abundance of...
