ARC Review: Lost for You by Jayne Frost

Jayne Frost Lost For You

 

This ARC was generously provided by the author.

Wow! This book was really good! I had no idea what to expect, but when Natasha told me we had an ARC about a rock star, I was excited. This is the fourth book in this series, but this is my first read of the series as it can be read as a standalone. The story started off a little complicated because there are A LOT of people involved. My head was spinning a little bit trying to keep everything and all the people straight. However, once I got through the beginning and the build, this book was HOT. Chase immediately had me interested and wanting to know more about him. I loved Taryn from her name alone because my daughter’s name is Taryn. Once I started  reading the character and lived up to the name, and I wanted her to succeed and be happy.

An overall enjoyable read.

3.5 stars

If you don’t know by now… I LOVE ROCK STAR tropes. I have to agree with Jasmine. In the beginning I was hooked. This wasn’t your “run of the mill” rock star story.  The main characters were surrounded by rock stars and so it was more of a “behind the scenes” story. But I loved it anyway. Chase was hot as hell. He and Taryn burned the pages up. This was a really entertaining read. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.

Review: Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again. When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, I became her darkest storm

When I heard that this book was LIVE, I one-clicked it without knowing what it was about. All I knew was Ms. Cherry had a new release. So I started this book, and as usual her writing  was impeccable. Jasmine and Elliot’s story was… everything. I mean Ms. Cherry leaves me speechless. I can not form a cohesive thought, or list the gamut of emotions I experienced while reading this. I will say this, I read this in one sitting. I cried. I laughed. I screamed. My heart broke. I received additional proof that Brittainy C. Cherry is a talented af. My disappointment returned because I didn’t meet her at LoveNVegas17. I started praying she would be at Book Bonanza… This was definitely a five star read for me. It had everything. Friendship, family, love, forgiveness, and a second chance romance that made my heart happy. Loved these characters!!!! Read It!

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!
