REVIEW ✧ SACKED

“If all I wanted was a quick lay, you and I both know I could get that without any effort. I want something more than that from you.”

☆☆☆☆

What he wants he gets… 

Knox Masters is a quarterback’s worst nightmare. Warrior. Champion. And…virgin. Knox knows what he wants–and he gets it. All American Football player? Check. NFL pros scouting him? Check. Now, he’s set his sight on two things. The national title. And Ellie Campbell. Sure, she’s the sister of his fellow teammate, but that’s not going to stop him. Especially not when he’s convinced Ellie is the one.

…but he’s never met her before. 

But Ellie isn’t as sure. She’s trying to start a new life and she’s not interested in a relationship…with anyone. Beside it’s not just her cardinal rule of never dating her brother’s teammates that keeps her away, but Ellie has a dark secret that would jeopardize everything Knox is pursuing.

Knox has no intention of losing. Ellie has no intention of giving in.

REVIEW ✧ SECRET HEIR (ARC)

36754125
“I don’t know how I know this, but I’m certain that I’ll never want anyone the way I want you. No other girl can even come close, Jaz. Not one.

☆☆☆

Since the beginning of time, tales have been told about Eden. But all the stories are wrong.
Running parallel alongside Earth, but never touching, there exists not just a garden, but an entire world of vivid colours and breathtaking beauty where the Seraph reside.
Jazmine has lived in ten different foster homes, in ten different towns and all her life she has felt like she doesn’t belong – not in the trailer park which happens to be foster home number ten, not anywhere on Earth.
After a universe shattering revelation, she discovers why. Far from being the nothing and no one, with no past and no future, that Jazmine had always believed herself to be, she discovers that she is in fact an heir to one of the seven remaining Seraph Dynasties.
She is Jazmine Evenstar, the last heir to the sovereign Evenstar Dynasty.
Thrust into the world of wealth and privilege in which the impossibly beautiful and equally cruel Dynasty heirs reside, Jazmine is forced to manoeuvre the tangled web that holds the Dynasties together.
Against the backdrop of breathtaking star filled nights, sweeping coastlines, grand marble halls and decadent palaces, Jazmine tries to find her place in this beautiful new world whilst fighting not to lose herself in the process.
But the fairy tale quickly unravels.
Half human and the illegitimate daughter of the late suicide King of Eden, the other Dynasty heirs make it clear that Jazmine does not belong in their world.
Raphael St. Tristan, heir to the rival sovereign St. Tristan Dynasty and next in line to the throne of Eden, the guy with the face of an angel but who is as wicked as the devil himself, promises to break her.
Jazmine quickly learns that the beauty of Eden is nothing but a deception as she uncovers the secrets festering at the heart of it. But can she disentangle herself from the web of deception and intrigue that the Dynasty heirs have spun? Can she stop herself from falling into Raphael St. Tristan’s trap before he can fulfil his promise to shatter her completely? Or are those stories about Eden true after all and will she be foolish enough to taste the forbidden fruit that is Eden itself?

CHARACTER OF THE WEEK ♡ FEBRUARY 2

Hello friends and happy Friday! Was it just me or did everyone else feel like this week dragged on and on forever with no end in sight? It felt so long so needless to say I’m quite happy it’s over and I can enjoy the weekend. Anyways, I’m really excited about today’s COTW. The character I’ve chosen isn’t brand new to the entire literature world but they’re recently brand new to me, meaning I just read the book or series they appear in. I think this is also the first time I’m choosing a secondary character rather than the main protagonist or even a love interest. That should be a massive hint, by the way. But this character is hilarious and a bit obnoxious with an even smaller attention span than I have but they’re fiercely loyal as well as strong and powerful. If this character was in my life I wouldn’t complain at all.

This week’s character is…..

MONTH IN REVIEW ✣ JANUARY

Hello friends and happy Wednesday! Woo hoo, it’s the first Month In Review of the new year! How have we already gone through an entire month when it feels like January just started? I seriously no longer understand the concept of time. Last year I felt like I was a little slow out of the gate with getting my reading on track but this year it’s like I shot out of a rocket. I have a big goal to reach at the end of the year and I’m not letting myself get behind whatsoever. Gotta keep moving, gotta keep reading. Speaking of reading, let’s get to the point of this post: the books!

TOP FIVE TUESDAY ♡ BOOK TITLES

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m beyond tired of all this snow and cold weather. Curse you, Canadian winter! Anyways, I think I’ve got a good Top Five for today. If you haven’t yet figured out from my previous Top Fives where I discussed the best (and worst) book covers, I’m the type of person who judges books. Yeah, yeah, I know the wonderful cliche phrase we should all live by but I can’t help it. I love judging. But I feel like judging book titles is very different from book covers. Right? Like, there are certain covers that look bad and make you not want to read it but with a title…..oh wait, nevermind they’re the same thing. I mean there are some titles that are down right embarrassing even if the book itself is amazing. And there’s more than good and bad titles, in my opinion; there are also those titles that are super extra for the sake of being creative, I suppose. Right or wrong, there are some great books with beautiful titles and I figured it’d be a great Top Five post!

Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: Book Titles

REVIEW ✧ TORN

31038172
“You cannot let anyone know what you are.”
“Gee. Really? I was thinking about updating my Facebook to halfling status.”

☆☆☆1/2

 

Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

REVIEW ✧ WICKED

22895264
“You’re going to have to get to know me better before you taste my cake.”
“Was that an invitation? Because I’m willing to get to know you in any way possible if that means I get to taste your cake.”

☆☆☆1/2

 

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

REVIEW ✧ OVER US, OVER YOU

19390021
“We were too young, but for the record, I’m pretty sure I damn near loved you, too.”

☆☆☆1/2

From New York Times bestselling author Whitney G. comes a falling for my older brother’s best friend romance.

Subject: Delete this message after you read it…
Dear Hayley,
I’m assuming you’re still hungover, so I’ll make this brief.
Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home.
That’s the story.
The end.
Period.
Just in case you’ve forgotten, you’re my best friend’s little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can’t be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved–or “over” in your terms, so I’d prefer if we worked on becoming ‘just friends’ again since you’re in town.
Nonetheless, I’m not a man who leaves questions unanswered–even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation:
1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me.
2) Yes, I do “prefer” rough sex, but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t rough with you.
3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin…
This message never happened,
Corey

TOP FIVE TUESDAY ♡ 2018 RELEASES

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s had a good day. Well, it’s the first Tuesday of the new year which means that it’s also the first Top Five Tuesday of 2018! And I have a plan for our first few Top Fives of the new year. My last few posts of 2017 had focused on the “best ofs” and was more of a reflection of the year and I thought that the best kind of contrast and compliment of that would be to have the first few posts of 2018 focus on what I’m looking forward to in the year. And what better way to start than with the new releases I’m most looking forward to?

Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: 2018 Releases!

YEAR IN REVIEW ✣ 2017

Hello friends and happy Sunday! And Happy New Year’s Eve as well! What a crazy year it’s been and it’s still unbelievable that it’s finally over. Anyways, this is usually the time where I would do my Month In Review but since I’ve been focusing more on rereading old favourites, I haven’t really read anything new or noteworthy. So we’re skipping forward to the Year In Review! Let’s get into all the ups and downs of my 2017 reads.
