Review: The Prince (A Wicked Trilogy 3.5) by Jennifer Armentrout

Posted on

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new story in her Wicked series…

She’s everything he wants….

Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.

She’s everything he can’t have…

Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she wants to do is help him, but he leaves her little choice. Forced to work alongside him, she begins to see the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.

She’s everything he’ll take….

But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone close to him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing between them each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be his undoing.

She’s everything he’d die for….

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

My Review

“Being consumed with vengeance was something I never thought I’d experience, but I was knee-deep in it and I wasn’t coming out anytime soon.”

“You’re not a ghost. You never could be one, not when you burn as brilliant as the sun.”

“I saw you smile once and it was like the sun finally rising.”

Man, oh man, was it good to be back in the Wicked World again! It honestly felt like no time had passed at all. I was immediately brought back to the magical world that Jennifer Armentrout has created and couldn’t wait to see what this novella had in store for us.

The Prince is fast paced and takes you on one thrilling ride. This story might be a novella, but it certainly packs a punch. It hooks you from the very beginning and you won’t be able to put it down. You’ll find yourself devouring each and every word…

The Prince picks up shortly where Brave left off. With the Queen out of the picture, everyone is just trying to move on. But, of course, moving on and having a happy ending is easier said than done. Tragedy strikes Brighton and turns her world totally upside down. She should be dead, but somehow she is not. Now, two years later, Brighton is out for blood and has a thirst for vengeance. Her plan isn’t perfect, but she’s determined to make things right. All is going well until the Prince enters the picture. He’s got plans for his own vengeance and tries to deter Brighton. That proves harder to do than the Prince anticipated. He’s haunted by his past and fighting the intense pull to Brighton. Will Brighton and the Prince get the vengeance they both desperately seek? Can the Prince walk away from what he feels for Brighton? There’s only one way to find out….

The Prince took me on one wild and crazy ride. I loved the danger and suspense of the story. I was 100% hooked and couldn’t wait to see how Brighton and the Prince’s story would play out. From action to suspense to excellent sexual tension and a really crazy twist, this book leaves no stone unturned. The Prince left me breathless, on my toes and that ending just left me begging for more. The Prince is a fabulous addition to Wicked Trilogy and I for one can not wait to find out what will happen next.

Review: Not So Nice Guy by R.S. Grey

Posted on

“Oh my god. Who that?”
I get asked this question a lot.
“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”

Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century.
Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol’ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile.

Just Ian is… just my best friend.

We’re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at works assumes we’re a couple – that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher’s lounge that he’s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it’s open season on Ian.

He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine.

He’s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into x-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.

I want to assume he’s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always – but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn’t leave a lot of room for confusion.

I’m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can’t keep my hands to myself. So, I’m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss – oh who am I kidding?!

Goodbye Ian, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal!

Helloooo mister not so nice guy.

My Review

“You’re mine and you don’t even know it.”

It’s no secret that I adore R.S. Grey’s writing and when it comes to romantic comedies, she is my go-to. So, when I heard about Not So Nice Guy, of course I had grabbie hands and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. And let me tell you, once I got my hands on this book, I devoured it. I just couldn’t get enough of Ian & Sam.

From the moment we meet up with Ian & Sam, you can tell these two were going to be special. They were best friends and everything to one another. If you didn’t know better, you would have assumed they were a couple, that’s how perfect they are together. It’s just so easy and effortless. That is until one day, Sam lets the cat out of the bag that she & Ian are not a couple. That delicious news was like open season. And this news makes Ian realize that if he wants a true shot with Sam, now is the time before someone else gets her….

I gotta say, if there is one thing I just adore, it’s friends to lovers romances. And when it comes to Sam & Ian, I just couldn’t get enough of the two of them. They were so perfect for each other and it was so incredibly cute watching them trying to figure things out. I laughed and smiled so much while reading Sam & Ian’s story. They were so playful and sweet with each other. And Ian was the perfect guy: Sweet, Attentive, and boy can he make you swoon. Add in a touch of naughty and these two will have you furiously turning the pages.

Not So Nice Guy was not what I was expecting at all. It was playful, sweet and just an overall good time. i love how these two crushed on one another for years, but never said anything. Their chemistry and amazing friendship lead to some seriously hot tension and delicious sexy good times. I loved the realness of Sam & Ian. Sam had insecurities just like anyone else and didn’t want to lose what she had with Ian. And I just loved how sure Ian was of everything. He knew that he and Sam were destined to be together, so watching them fall was a total joy to see.

Not So Nice Guy is the kind of book that just leaves a smile on your face. It’s like sunshine on a cloudy day. If you’re in a bad mood, this book will fix you right up. It’s so fun and sweet, you just can’t go wrong. So, if you’re looking for a fun, light read with little drama and a whole lot of sweet, look no further, Not So Nice Guy is just what the doctor ordered. It is the perfect summer read. I hope you will take a chance on Not So Nice Guy and will fall in love with Ian & Sam just as I did.

Review: The Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting

Posted on

Is it love, or is she just his good luck charm? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting absolutely delights with this witty and fun standalone contemporary romance.

Lilah isn’t sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career, or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she’s no longer that same girl and never wants to be again.

Ethan Kane wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that.

Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let him in, though, she finds out their reunion has nothing to do with her and everything to do with his game. But Ethan’s already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he’ll do anything to keep from losing her again.

My Review

“My heart remembers that he broke it, but the rest of me seems to have forgotten.”

“His touch could calm me and excite me simultaneously. Like being given a sedative and a shot of caffeine at the same time. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this kind of intense draw to another person.”

The Good Luck Charm is a sexy and exciting second chance romance from author Helena Hunting. The Good Luck Charm follows the story of Lilah and Ethan. Lilah is busy trying to live the dream. Her day starts off a total mess. From destroyed clothes to divorce papers, the last thing she ever expected was to see a ghost from her past. Lilah hasn’t seen or heard from Ethan in over 8 years and the pain is just as fresh when she sees him again. He wants her forgiveness, but she doesn’t know if she can let go of the past. Ethan will stop at nothing to try and have Lilah by his side again. And just when things seem to be going his way, fate throws in another curve-ball. Will history repeat itself once again or are Lilah and Ethan in it for the long haul?? There’s only one way to find out.

Stories like this are totally my jam. I just can’t get enough of the separated lovers reunited by chance. And this one was just fantastic. I was sucked in to Ethan and Lilah’s story from the first page. The tension between the two of them was just so palpable. I could tell that there was something still there; something worth fighting for and I couldn’t wait to see just how their story was going to play out. Now, the road to happily ever after was not an easy one for them. Leliah had a lot of hurt and pain to work through. But, I loved how genuine Ethan seemed. He thought he was making the best decision at the time and now is grabbing on to his second chance like his life depends on it.

The Good Luck Charm is a terrific read from beginning to end. I’ll be the first to admit that the pacing is a bit slower than the books I normally gravitate to, but for this book, I think the slower pacing worked. I got a good feel for the characters, their story, their connection and all that was lost. I got to see them work to rebuild what was lost. Whether circumstances were right or wrong, these two had some real growing up to do and priorities to get straight. I really enjoyed seeing how far they came and couldn’t help but find myself rooting for them.

The Good Luck Charm is fun and sexy with a great mix of sweetness. This story will suck you in and keep you begging for more. Neither character is perfect and I found them both very easy to relate to. Their story is one of first loves and fighting for that second chance. It is a story of forgiveness and heart. A story of communication and a love that even years can’t take away. The Good Luck Charm is a solid four star read for me and just the book I was looking to spend my afternoon with.

Review: Good Luck with That by Kristan Higgins

Posted on

Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it’s coming to terms with the survivor’s guilt she’s carried around since her twin sister’s death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it’s about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother’s and brother’s ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson’s dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.


My Review

“Life was kind and full of chances. Sometimes we didn’t take them. Sometimes we hid our truth and acted out of fear. Sometimes we turned away and closed the door. But sometimes,  there were moments like this, when I was kissing the only man I had ever loved, and the snow fell gently around us like a blessing. Good luck, I imagined the universe saying kindly, infusing the phrase with gentleness and faith. Good luck with everything.”

I had no idea when I picked this book up that it was such a controversial read. While I do feel that this book isn’t for everyone, I will tell you that this book is honest. This book is real. This story deals with some deep issues and insecurities. So even though it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I’m glad I picked this story up. I’m glad I gave it chance.

I want to start off by saying that this type of story is a departure for me. I don’t usually read a lot of women’s fiction. I’m a huge romance fan, but there was just something about this synopsis that grabbed me and made me want to pick up this book. Good Luck with That is a story about 3 friends who met at fat camp when they were younger. When one of the girls, Emerson dies tragically, she leaves her besties with one last wish. Her last wish if for them to complete the “when I get skinny” list they made as kids and finally conquer their fears. This list for Marley & Georgia isn’t easy. They will be forced to really look into themselves and see the truths that they have ignored. It will force them to open their eyes and see the possibles. It will force them to see the amazing women they are and learn to love themselves again….

Like I said, this story is not for everyone and everyone is not going to like it. It will be hit for some and a miss for others. For me, I thought the story was very real and honest. There was some darkness to it and at times, it wasn’t easy to read. However, I loved the honesty of the characters and seeing them come to terms with their insecurities. I loved seeing Marley & Georgia grow and transform as the story went on. I was intrigued by these two woman and was curious how their story was going to end.

Good Luck with That is an a story about loss and self-discovery. It is a story of acceptance and hope. It is a story of finding yourself and coming to terms with your true self. It is a story of friendship with a dash of romance to keep this romance lover happy. Overall, I thought this book was well written and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Review: The Chase by Elle Kennedy

Posted on

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

My Review

“Some kisses are a prelude to sex. Some happen out of boredom. Some make your body tingle, others might leave feeling nothing at all. But what all those kisses have in common? They’re just kisses. They’re not THE KISS. The one that lingers in your mind for hours, even days, after it’s over. The one that has you randomly touching your lips and breaking out in a warm, fluttery shiver as you remember the feel of his mouth on you.”

“Loving yourself is hard enough. Silencing the inner critic borders on impossible.”

“I want a man with clear intentions. A man who makes an effort and is excited to spend time with me. A man who actually wants to want me.”

Man! Oh, man! Have I ever been dying to get my hands on this book. The Chase is the first book in the exciting new Briar U Series and let me tell you, this story does not disappoint. Brair U is a real treat that will captivate you and keep you begging for more.

From familiar faces to brand new ones, there is so much to love about this story. The characters are fantastic and you are going to want to know all there is to know about each and every one. Fitzy and Summer won me over from the very beginning. At first glance, Summer is the girl that you think you know everything about: spoiled, beautiful, clueless, the life of the party. And Fitzy couldn’t be more her opposite: Hockey player, intelligent, artsy, a total introvert. But, let me tell you there is so much more to these two characters than meets the eye. Summer is definitely beautiful and is always down to party. But, she’s also very smart and sensitive. Things don’t come naturally for her despite what others may think. And even though Fitzy is totally out of her league, she can’t help but want him…

Fitzy and Summer were everything I wanted and then some. Their push and pull was off the charts and led to some seriously fantastic angst. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. I gobbled up all of the will they/won’t they moments and held my breath while watching them try to figure things out. They had me twisted and tied up in the most delicious knots.

The Chase reminded me exactly why I love NA books so much. The plot was fun and entertaining. The characters were easy to relate to and had you dying to get to know them. The sexual tension was intense and burned up the pages. The friendships were just what everyone could want and hope for. Add in some drama, a sleazy professor and some seriously funny moments, and you’ve got all the elements for a terrific read. I loved every single thing about this book and could not be more excited to get my hands on the next book in this series. I totally recommend giving The Chase a try.

My Review

“Ben was my first everything. He taught me how to kiss. He taught me how to listen. He taught me how to love, not just him, but how to love life.”

“You’re….a nuclear explosion. You’re a force to be reckoned with, and I fucking love that about you.”

“Listen to me, Char. You. Are. Loved. You always have been and always will be. And someone is going to get to love you. I hope to fucking God that someone is me. If it’s not, then I’ll accept that. But, I won’t let you go on believing you’re not loved. Do you understand me?”

“A picture is worth a thousand words, but yours are worth so much more.”

Ben Hayes was the boy next door. The love of Charley’s life. Their romance was everything Charley could ever want….until one day Ben turned her world upside down and destroyed her heart. 3 years will pass before Charley and Ben will be reunited. Charley is determined to stay strong and to not let Ben back into her heart. However, Ben has other plans. He’s not just there to spend time with his dying father. He’s there to right his wrongs and hopefully win back the girl of his dreams…..

Break is a second chance romance about first loves, the one who got away and owning up to your mistakes. From the moment I picked up Ben and Charley’s story, I was intrigued. I was so sad for Charley and everything that she went through when she lost Ben. In fact, I was so annoyed by Ben, that I was totally glaring at his name when it came up in the story. Of course, that all changed when I found out what Ben was keeping from Charley. I could see where he was coming from. He was young and at the time, he thought he didn’t have another choice and that by doing what he did, he could protect Charley. But, Charley ended up getting hurt anyways. And I think for Ben, knowing that he broke Charley was something he couldn’t live with. She was his everything and he was determined to find a way to get her back.

The road to happily ever after for Charley and Ben wasn’t an easy one. Ben had a lot of explaining and groveling to do. He had to prove that he was there for the long haul and that he would never hurt Charley again. I really appreciated that Ben took the time to get to know Charley again and that he tried to earn her trust back. That made their journey that much more satisfying. I loved watching Ben and Charley together. Their chemistry and love still strong despite all the time that passed. Neither one of them was perfect, but I think they tried their best. They were both still pretty young and still had a lot of growing to do. For me, it was fun watching them try to navigate their way through things and strive for their happiness.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I’m a sucker for a good second chance romance and this one hit all the marks for me. My only issue with this book was that I felt like things were a bit rushed toward the end. I can’t really give you specifics because I don’t want to spoil anything, but for me, there was a particular situation that I would have liked to have had fleshed out a little more/given more resolution. And of course, I would have loved to have seen a little more groveling from Ben 😉 Other than that, I thought Break was a great read and had a lot of fun getting lost in Ben and Charley.

EXCERPT

Chapter 3:

I’m about to turn around and head back to the Uber, when Charley stands up from the chair and begins making her way toward the entrance. It’s like watching an angel coming at me, but from the stony expression on her face, I can’t decide if she looks more like a guardian angel or an angel of death. Either way, she’s gorgeous: tall and slender, with hips that would make a grown man cry; her dark hair cascades over her shoulders in luscious waves; round, hazel eyes and full lips framed by soft cheekbones and a perfect oval face.

She always complained about the tiny bump on her nose, or that her top lip wasn’t as full as her bottom lip. I used to tell her that complaining about those things is like looking at a gorgeous sunset and complaining that the sun is too bright.

Michelle glares at Charley and says something that looks like, “What are you doing?”

Charley says something to her that I can’t make out, but Michelle shakes her head adamantly. Charley glares at her, then says something that looks like, “Do it.”

Michelle rolls her eyes and they both continue toward me as Michelle pulls a ring of keys out of her apron. My heart soars as I realize Charley is forcing her friend to open the door. Maybe she’s not as angry with me as I anticipated.

The whole time Michelle is unlocking the door, I keep my gaze focused on Charley, willing her to look at me and give me some kind of smile or nod or something to let me know I’m right. But her eyes are trained on Michelle’s hands. Finally, the door pushes out toward me and Charley emerges with an expression on her face I’ve never seen before. I can’t explain it any other way except a stone-cold lack of emotion.

“Charley, I just want to talk to you. Just give me five minutes.”

Her expression doesn’t change. “I don’t want to talk to you, Ben. You should leave before Mason gets here.”

“It’s probably better that he’s here. I owe him an apology, too,” I say, taking a step toward her.

Michelle steps sideways, half her body shielding Charley now. “That’s close enough.”

Charley puts her hand on Michelle’s arm. “You can go inside. I can handle this.”

“Are you sure?”

Charley nods and we both watch in silence as Michelle shoots me one last burning glare before she heads back inside. “Look, Ben, I’m sure you’ve probably made up some kind of excuse that justifies what you did to me. But there’s nothing you could say that will make me understand or forgive what you did. So, once again, I’m asking you to leave. I really don’t want to see what Mason will do to you when he gets here.”

The cool expression on her face and the even tone in her voice chills my blood. What have I done to her?

“You know damn well Mason’s never been able to take me.”

“He’s been rage-lifting,” she replies coolly, using the phrase I made up for when I would take my aggression out at the gym. “I don’t want him to get in trouble with the cops when he kicks your ass.”

I suppress my laughter, so I don’t further piss her off. “Baby, I’m not here to get in fights or make excuses. And—”

“Don’t call me baby.”

I pause for a moment and take a deep breath. “Look, I don’t expect you to forgive me. Not tonight, anyway.”

She clenches her jaw and lets out a puff of laughter through her nose. “You really are just as cocky as always if you think I’d ever forgive you.”

I close my eyes for a second to collect myself as anger roars inside me. “You…have no fucking idea why I did what I did.”

“I don’t care why you did it!” she shouts, her stony expression crumbling. “You broke us! I don’t want to see you ever again. Go back to L.A., Ben.”

I step forward and grab her elbows. “This isn’t over, Char.”

“Don’t touch me!” she yells, wrestling her arms from my grip.

I’m close enough to smell her now, that sugared-strawberry scent I remember so fucking well it makes my arms ache to hold her. “You have no fucking idea how sorry I am.”

“Are you drunk? I can smell alcohol.”

I blink at her question, standing my ground as I see the headlights of a car approaching.

She glances toward the lights and her eyes widen with panic. “Go home, Ben. Please. As much as I hate you, I don’t want to see you hurt.”

I shake my head. “It’s too late for that.”

ARE THEY IN TOO DEEP?

Ex-Navy SEAL Cabe Moss always comes when called to duty―at all costs. Even though the death of his fiancée nearly destroyed him, Cabe won’t let his past interfere with any work that has to get done. When his latest task pushes him to team up with FBI Agent Amy Murray, a fierce beauty with the undercover skills to match, Cabe must admit that, for the first time in years, he wants to do more than just complete their mission together…

Amy was born ready for this assignment, but working side-by-side with the the strong, silent, and frustratingly professional Cabe seems to be the biggest challenge of all. But when the sparks begin to fly―and the stakes rise to dangerous heights―the only thing Amy is left worrying about is how she can resist him. Their lives may be in danger, but their hearts hold the biggest risk of all…

My Review

Deep Cover is the third book in The Love Over Duty Series and is an interconnected stand-alone novel. Deep Cover follows the story of Cabe and Amy. Cabe is the guy you can always count on when you need him. When called to duty, he’ll never let you down. When his fiancee passed away, it nearly destroyed him. He will face his biggest challenge to date when he gets paired up with FBI Agent Amy Murry. Even though Cabe may appear to be the strong, silent type, there is more to him than meets the eye. The stakes are high and sparks are flying all over the place. Will Amy be able to resist Cabe? Will they be able to keep things professional and solve the case?? There’s only one way to find out…..

Deep Cover is my first book by this author and overall I thought it was an ok read. I was really intrigued by the story-line and the characters. I wanted to know more, though I will admit, the first part of the story did move at a slower pace than I would like. Since the story is not told from the first person point of view, I will admit that I was distracted. With so many characters and the different pov type, I found it hard to concentrate on the story. 2nd & 3rd Person POV is something that I personally struggle with, but do try my best to overcome.

Anyways, I liked Amy and Cabe together. Amy was smart and witty. She challenged Cabe and made him want to have a life again. And Cabe was an alpha male with the biggest heart, even when he seemed closed off and wanting to keep things professional. Together, I thought these two meshed well and was looking forward to seeing how their story was going to play out.

Deep Cover is one of those stories that I think will be a hit for some and a miss for others. For me, I thought it was an ok read. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. There was a few issues with the story that made it a little hard for me, but in the end, I’m glad I didn’t give up on Amy and Cabe’s story. I loved the danger and suspense that Deep Cover had to offer and appreciated the light drama associated with Amy and Cabe’s romance.

As I stated before, this is my first read by this author, and while it wasn’t a 100% hit for me, I’d still opening to checking out more from her in the future.
