Review: Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino

Posted on

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Before We Were Strangers and Swear on This Life comes a novel about a young woman who reunites with a soulful artist after their magical one-night stand…only to be faced with an impossible decision.

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, floating from interest to interest, job to job, and guy to guy, searching for a spark but never quite finding it. All she knows is that she won’t discover it working as a waitress at a pies-and-fries joint in Los Angeles or living with her fun but aimless best friend in a tiny apartment in the Arts District.

Then Charlotte collides with Adam, a gorgeous and soulful painter who seems just as lost as she feels. Their instant connection turns into a midnight drink…and a whirlwind night of champagne, Chinese food, and the kind of conversation that only happens in romantic comedies. But the next morning, Adam gives Charlotte the cold shoulder, leaving her confused and hurt—and wondering if the few odd moments between them the night before were red flags in disguise.

Months later, Charlotte hasn’t been able to shake Adam, so she decides to find out what happened the morning after their magical night together. This fateful decision rewrites their wild love story, but what Charlotte doesn’t know yet is that the ending has already been written.

My Review

“There aren’t enough stars up there to match the reasons why I love you.”

“I wanted to believe him. I wanted to believe the stranger I had met on the street hours before wasn’t just playing me. I wanted to believe he was falling for me.”

“He was baring it all for me and I was going to do the same for him, even though I knew it would break me into a million pieces.”

Every once in a while you come across a book that is truly epic and moving. The kind of book that will leave you with one hell of a book hangover.

Wish You Were Here is a truly special book that will take you on the most incredible journey of love, missed opportunities, self discovery, friendship and family. The journey that Charlotte, Adam and Seth go on is profound, emotional and at times conflicting. With elements of insta-love, a deep and unforgettable connection and a love that will last a lifetime, their story will captivate your heart and pull you emotions in many directions.

This story has left me speechless and at a loss for words at the moment. I have fallen so deeply in love with the characters, their story and their friendships. I know I that I have just experienced something so precious, that my mind is at a blank, trying desperately to put my thoughts and feelings into words.

Wish You Were Here is beautiful and heartbreaking. It is brilliantly written and is a story that I know will be staying with me for a long time to come. This is definitely one of my favorite books of 2017.

Throw Back Thursday……A Matter of Fate by Heather Lyons

Posted on

This weeks Throw Back Thursday to goes to one of my absolute favorite reads. I would say this book is Mature YA/NA Crossover. If you are a fan of paranormal romances and fantasy, I’d highly recommend getting your hands on this book. It is consuming and torturous in the best possible way. With lots of love, frustrating moments, action, betrayal and craziness that just tugs at your heart, this is a must read!!

“Love isn’t always clean and pretty–sometimes it’s messy, cruel, and confusing. And sometimes, it doesn’t turn out the way you want it to. But then, the beauty of love is that it’s very strong, and when it’s real, it’s worth it.” 

Chloe Lilywhite struggles with all the normal problems of a typical seventeen-year-old high school student. Only, Chloe isn’t a normal teenage girl. She’s a Magical, part of a secret race of beings who influence the universe. More importantly, she’s a Creator, which means Fate mapped out her destiny long ago, from her college choice, to where she will live, to even her job. While her friends and relatives relish their future roles, Chloe resents the lack of say in her life, especially when she learns she’s to be guarded against a vengeful group of beings bent on wiping out her kind. Their number one target? Chloe, of course.

That’s nothing compared to the boy trouble she’s gotten herself into. Because a guy she’s literally dreamed of and loved her entire life, one she never knew truly existed, shows up in her math class, and with him comes a twin brother she finds herself inexplicably drawn to.

Chloe’s once unyielding path now has a lot more choices than she ever thought possible.

DRIFT by Amy Murray

I’m not crazy. My mother may have died with everyone believing she was insane, but I refuse to accept that as my fate. Even if I am recalling memories about a life I never lived. A life that includes the mysterious James—a guy I’ve only just met, but feel as if I’ve known all my life. The memories are coming hard and fast, and I’m falling down a rabbit hole with consequences that far exceed anything I could have ever imagined. And now, someone is trying to kill me.

Someone from my past who knows about my visions and is looking for something he believes I took from him. All I have to do is figure out how these memories relate to the present and maybe I’ll survive to live another day.

Maybe…

Some words last forever…
It’s been six months since Ashlyn Daniels was kicked out of her home. Six months since she stood up to her abusive stepfather and got a busted rib-and seeing all her things set ablaze in a backyard bonfire-for her trouble. Never going back. She doesn’t need trouble…especially if trouble is tattoo artist Lane Garrett, who’s six-feet-plus of tattooed hotness and a complete ass.

Lane has spent the last decade fighting to support his family. To protect them. There’s no room for romance, even with a fragile (yet amusingly feisty) stunner…even if she somehow manages to invade his world and his heart.

But while some secrets are as visible as ink on the skin, others must remain hidden at all costs…

Throw Back Thursday….The Secret of Ella & Micha (Secret #1) by Jessica Sorensen

Posted on

This weeks TBT goes to The Secret of Ella & Micha by Jessica Sorensen. This is one of my favorite NA books. I am a sucker for broken and damaged characters and this story certainly fit the bill. It pulled me in, breaking my heart almost instantly. The characters were real and flawed. Their story one of a roller-coaster ride with so many ups and downs. I loved all the angst filled moments and everything in between…

“I love you, Ella May and nothing will ever change that. You can push me away -run away – and I will still love you.”
“Please don’t go. I just got you back.”
“He knows what I’m about to say–he always does. He is my best friend, my soul mate. In a perfect world full of roses and sunshine we’d be together, but this is full of broken.”

Ella and Micha have been best friends since they were kids. But one tragic night shatters their friendship and their lives forever.
Ella used to be a rule-breaker with fiery attitude who wore her heart on her sleeve. But she left everything behind when she went to college and transformed into someone that follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. But now it’s summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home. 

Ella fears everything she worked so hard to bury might resurface, especially with Micha living right next door. If Micha tries to tempt the old her back, she knows that it will be hard to resist.

Micha is sexy, smart, confident, and can get under Ella’s skin like no one else can. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. And he’s determined to bring his best friend, and the girl he loves back, no matter what it takes.

Waiting For Wednesday…..SecondBorn by Amy Bartol

Posted on

This week’s Waiting for Wednesday goes to Amy Bartol! As a fan of her Premonition & Kricket Series, I have been dying for this author’s next series! Well, the wait is almost over!!! Secondborn is releasing on Aug. 1st and I can not wait to get my hands on this book.

Pre-order Secondborn (Secondborn Series Book 1)

Firstborns rule society. Secondborns are the property of the government. Thirdborns are not tolerated. Long live the Fates Republic.

On Transition Day, the second child in every family is taken by the government and forced into servitude. Roselle St. Sismode’s eighteenth birthday arrives with harsh realizations: she’s to become a soldier for the Fate of Swords military arm of the Republic during the bloodiest rebellion in history, and her elite firstborn mother is happy to see her go.

Televised since her early childhood, Roselle’s privileged upbringing has earned her the resentment of her secondborn peers. Now her decision to spare an enemy on the battlefield marks her as a traitor to the state.

But Roselle finds an ally—and more—in fellow secondborn conscript Hawthorne Trugrave. As the consequences of her actions ripple throughout the Fates Republic, can Roselle create a destiny of her own? Or will her Fate override everything she fights for—even love?

Throw Back Thursday…..

Posted on

Let’s kick off this week with an oldie, but goodie: Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand. 

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
