Review: The Fae Chronicles Unraveling Destiny by Amelia Hutchins

Unraveling Destiny (The Fae Chronicles, #5)

I knew Destiny wasn’t done with me. I knew that she was just getting warmed up, but I had no clue just how hard my world was going to come crashing down on me.
I had thought that I was going to get my fairytale wedding and marry the man of my dreams.
I was wrong.
Now, faced with having my world torn asunder and Faery exposed, I have to make choices I never thought I’d have to make.
I’m divided between two worlds, and I have to decide just how far I will go to get back what was stolen from me.
Old enemies are closing in, new enemies are being revealed, and surprising allies are entering the playing field.
War is on the horizon, and it’s coming right for us.

I’ll be honest I will NEVER EVER EVER  get enough of Ryder. He is one of my most beloved book boys eva. Maybe I’m crazy, but I feel like Ryder wasn’t around all that much in this installment. I’m kind of heartbroken by this. I didn’t get my fix. I need more. I always need more. Don’t get me wrong I loved this book, but I’m selfish and greedy when it comes to Ryder. Synthia didn’t disappoint, and my girl crush remains intact. Synthia was as bad ass as ever. This book was action packed and the world building was amazing as usual. This book was needed to bring all the other books together. I enjoyed it, but where was my alpha?!

Review: Corrupt by Penelope Douglas

Corrupt (Devil's Night, #1)

Erika 
I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession. 
His name is Michael Crist. 
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me. 
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away. 
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore. 
Because he’s finally noticed me. 

Michael
Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway. 
Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college. 
In my city. 
Unprotected. 
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out. 
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

I am having so much fun tackling this list for LoveNVegas!!!!!! I wanted to revisit this author’s work before we meet her. This book  was crazy as hell. I didn’t know who to trust or what was going on. I didn’t know if I liked the characters. But I knew I had to finish this story. I was dying to know what happen. Rika and Michael were a pain in the ass, but they were so meant for each other. I loved being in their world. This book was full of suspense, hawt sex, fun, and friendship. Loved it!!!!!!!  I really want to read Kai’s story next, but I have to get through a few more authors. I will be purchasing them to be signed. Read this book!!!!!!

ARC Review Mr. North by Callie Hart

Mr. NorthLaw student Beth Dreymon is out of money and struggling hard. If she wants to finish her degree, she’s going to have to earn some money and fast. When she learns of an exciting opportunity—playing chess with New York’s most elusive billionaire—the offer sounds too good to be true. Reassured the offer is legit, Beth gets her game face on and prepares to geek out…

Only, when she steps foot into Raphael North’s luxurious penthouse, the rulebook goes flying out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. North is beautiful and damaged—a terrible temptation—and he has his sights set on winning Beth over. He’s just a job, though. A job Beth needs in order to make ends meet. If she plans on making her life in New York work, she needs to keep her eye on the prize. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, however, and it isn’t long before Beth finds herself entangled in Raphael’s world of dark desire.
Captor.
Curator.
Lover.
Enigma.
Beth should run from the devastatingly attractive blue-eyed devil, but Mr North has other ideas…and he’s about to make his next move.

We love Callie Hart, and was so excited to receive our first ARC from her. This was a crazy ride. I loved Raph, he was an endearing *hole. This story started with a bang. I was extremely intrigued. I love me an emotional damaged male in books (lol). I loved Beth and her feisty ways. They were adorbs together. But the book wasn’t perfect. I wanted more sex, more answers, and more of a connection between the MCs. Even though I didn’t get everything I wanted, it was worth the read and I really enjoyed it. I could have finished this in one sitting, but life… Read it and let us know what you thought!

Review: Sick Fux by Tillie Cole

When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.
Tick Tock.

I so didn’t want to read this! Not because it was dark. But because I knew this book would ruin me for the rest of the year. But it kept calling me, and so I gave in. I finished this book over a week ago and have not been able to move on. Tillie Cole never disappoints. Dolly and Rabbit’s story was as sordid as they come. The darkness prevailed no matter how many light switches you turned on. But this story was written just for me…lol. I loved every minute of it. I love dark and so does the other half of KindleCousins, Jasmine. Who refuses to read this one, because she’s smart. We have some ARCs to get through and she knew Tillie would ruin her! Stay tuned for her review in 2018!

ARC Review: The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn

 

 

 

 

 

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

Why? Why does he have to magically appear in my life? Moving back to Binghamton, I thought about the possibility of maybe running into him, but I thought it unlikely, something that would never really happen.

Boy, was I wrong.

What a sick joke life is playing on me.

Aaron Walters, the boy who broke me into pieces is my neighbor.

I can’t fathom the impact I feel already.

Seeing him in hip-hugging jeans and a tight, plain shirt did a number on me. It kept me up all night as memories of what we used to have flooded my mind.

His voice.

His stature.

The way he used to kiss my neck.

The way I felt so protected in his arms.

Too bad his arms couldn’t protect me from his devastating, heart-breaking self.

And hell, he looked good. Too good.

He’s always been tall with handsome features and a chiseled jaw, but now he’s bulked up to the point that I could see his abs flexing under his shirt, the same shirt that stretched over his biceps.

But it wasn’t his muscles or handsome features that once again made my heart ache, it was those eyes. So bright, so blue, so kind, but still so sad. It reminded me of the first day I met him, of the day he stole my heart from every other man on the market.

Broken, unsure, yet yearning for love. It was all there, and like experiencing a moment of déjà vu, I was transported back into a time when I felt invisible, like I could conquer anything with him at my side.

Once again, I was wrong.

 

 

First of all, we’ve met Meghan a few times over the past year and she is definitely one of our faves. She is such a fun and vibrant person and we love seeing her at signings. Plus, our husbands love getting boobs!

Now the book.

Such an easy read. This was a second chance romance which can sometimes be so cheesy and forced. This was neither of those things. This story drew me in right away. I LOVE Aaron. He’s sexy and sweet and so easy to love. The auxiliary characters were amazing too. Amanda was the perfect best friend. Tucker and Racer were perfect man friends. I don’t want to give anything away, so just read this book!

Meghan has sold me on the Romcom genre. Love her. The Other Brother was hilarious, with just enough emotion to keep me on edge. Aaron had me swooning like crazy. He was a sweetheart, but still gave me those alpha vibes I crave so much. I thought this was gonna be a love triangle, but I was so wrong. Like Jasmine said, it was a second chance romance. It wasn’t as angsty as other second chance romances. It felt like Aaron and Amelia were 2 friends reminiscing most of the time. It was comfortable, cute, and hawt at times. I really loved this one. After reading this book, I realized a couple of things… 1) tootsie rolls are the bomb!!! 2) When it comes to Little Debbie snacks, I’m an oatmeal pie, pecan twirl kind of girl!!! Read This!!!

Review: Arsen a Broken Love Story by Mia Asher

Arsen: A Broken Love Story

One glance was all it took…
I’m a cheater.
I’m a liar.
My whole life is a mess.
I love a man.
No, I love two men…
I think.
One makes love to me. The other sets me on fire.
One is my rock. The other is my kryptonite.
I’m broken, lost, and disgusted with myself.
But I can’t stop. This is my story.
My broken love story.

Wow!!!! Jasmine and I were in a serious funk this summer. We read next to nothing. Then all of a sudden…BAM!!! We have been on a wonderful reading streak and it didn’t end with this book. So where do I start? I normally hate books with cheating. But I took a chance because our goal is to read some of the authors we’ll meet at the LoveN Vegas event. I’m sooooo glad I took a chance. Did I love the characters? No. But I was caught up in this book’s snare. The writing was exceptional and pulled you in. The start was slow, but even then, there was this underlying impending doom that I couldn’t look away from. This was an angsty read. At about 79%, I actually covered my eyes and was in a full anxiety attack…lol. I just couldn’t believe the audacity of these characters. By 83%, I was a blubbering idiot. The range of emotions I felt while reading this was crazy.  I loved this one. Gah!!! Please, Please, Please Jasmine hurry up and read this one!!!! Issa disaster! I have to read another one by Mia Asher next…

This was definitely a disaster, but I could not look away. I was pissed at these characters at many points. Then, there were moments that BROKE me. I didn’t love these characters but I was invested in them. This story was masterfully written because it pulled me in even without making me love the characters. I flew through this book because it was literally a train wreck that I could not stop reading.
