The Hot Shot (Game On #4) by Kristen Callihan ***

Holy toothache that was sweet. 

giphy

Like almost too sweet.

I have loved this series since book one, so it was inevitable that I find one that I didn’t  like.

eh

It took me almost a week to read this book, and most of the time I devour a book in a day.

Now before I get into why, this wasn’t a fave. Let me explain why it might be yours. I loved Chess and Finn.

They have an easy banter between them, that kept me engaged and entertained. I loved the way they met. They are also sexy together.

The dirty talk came from Chess which was an interesting take, that I loved.

Finn is adorable, and love sick.

 It’s not that I didn’t like it because I did, I didn’t enjoy it as well as the others.

I was bored, I don’t know why it seemed to drag on for me, it just did.

There was something missing, or maybe it was just too much sweetness.

I’m not sure if this is as a spoiler or not because we all know the couple is going to have some form of fight, but the fight confused me. I read it twice, like what just happened?

Not my favorite, but it may be yours.

Where Good Girls Go to Die (Good Girls #1) by Holly Renee

This is one of those books, that the blurb told me I was going to love it, and well…..

giphy2

I was in a horrible book slump, so I tried the whole cheating thing. Sometimes I venture out.

Now the cheating didn’t bother me. 

I originally gave this 3 stars, but now I that I’m trying to write a review, I can’t think of anything nice to say…..

 no-words

If you don’t have anything nice to say……

Why was she a stripper?

Take Me Back by Meghan March

Kat and Dane both have secrets, and keeping them has destroyed their marriage. Now their on a vacation to fix it. 10 days on a remote island.

This is sweet, action packed, quick read. 

People are going crazy of this book and I’m over here like…

eh

The back and forth from past to present  throws me off. So that could be why.

It was a little slow at first, but does pick up.

I guess my problem is I didn’t feel the connection between the Kat and Dane. I felt more of a connection between Kat and her best friend. Maybe that was the point?

It is what it is. Maybe it not you it’s me. 🙂

Blackwood by Celia Aaron

5 “What if I say please” Stars 

Well that was unexpectedly awesome. 13562512

I got this book when it came out, and read like the first 3 pages and thought eh this might not be for me. It was on kindle unlimited so not hard no foul. Boy was I wrong. This book is right up my ally. Mystery, suspense, and some hot taboo sex.

I devoured it. 

Once I got past the first chapter. I was sucked in.

Elsie is digging for answers, and she will do anything to get them. Even if it means leading her professor on and forging documents. She uses her archaeology degree as a front to get the answers to her father’s disappearance.

She’s a strong heroine, which I love.

Garrett Blackwood could dirty talk the panties off of me.

“If you said ‘please’, I’d fuck you so hard that you wouldn’t be able to sit down, walk, or breathe for days without thinking of my cock inside you.”

panty-drop

He really does try to keep Red at a distance, but Red is determined to bring out the beast. I can say I didn’t see the ending. This was some good stuff.

Bound by Vengeance (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles #5) by Cora Reilly

2.5 No connection Stars

So it looks like I may be the odd one out, but I was disappointed. fail

If I remember correctly, I didn’t really love the last book either, maybe the series is just over for me. I don’t know.

I’ve also been a bit of a book funk, my next read shelf is full of books that I own, but I haven’t been able to get into.

Growl ( hate that name), is the top hit man. Her feared, but not so much respected. He is known as the bastard child, well just bastard. There was something  endearing about him. While he was a “monster”, I wanted to hug him and show him some love.

Now Cara, she over thought everything, and I mean everything. I always have a problem with woman who bodies respond, but the mind doesn’t. Maybe because as a woman, if my brain isn’t in it, nothing is happening.

Anyway, she spent most of the book caring what over people thought. Like really? None of those people cared about you, or helped you when life turned to shit.

Between Ms high and mighty, and Growl’s self loathing I didn’t feel a connection.

I mean maybe I’m being picky or harsh, but damn that woman. Lastly, what was with that ending?

I rounded to 3 stars because at least I finished this one. Sadly, it may just be time for me to give up on this series.

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

“She can be a nightmare, but this still feels better than any dream.”

Penelope Douglas is my favorite author, she gets away with murder with my pet peeves, and I don’t care, because I LOVE her stories.

So she really stepped out of the box, which I love. I don’t expect a perfect heroine,  and Penelope didn’t write one.

Ryan is a self-centered bullying bitch, and I loved her. I know, I know, hold the phone.

I should hate you

Okay, that Gif was a bit Dramatic

She is a character who I had to grow to love, and that was okay.

Sadly, authors write about heroines who are sweet and relatable, and most times they just come off ass basic and stupid, so it was a good change of pace and a risk on Penelope’s part.

Ryan is popular, and she will do just about anything to stay in power, and she doesn’t care  who she has to step on to get to the top. It’s heartbreaking, and uncomfortable.

So we have a story about a bad boy, and a conceited cheerleader, who have known each other for 7 years but never met. Misha knows who Ryan is and but Ryan doesn’t have a clue that Masen is Misha.

Now, Misha, he’s the bad  boy we love.

“Your dirty little secret who will fuck you in the back of a truck, hiding you so your stuck-up, shallow friends don’t know how good I give it to you?”

God, it’s embarrassing how much Misha turned me on .

 I know there’s something wrong with me, but damn do I love when boys are mean. I really do.

I went into the book blind, and I’m glad I did.

This is a story about two people dealing with shit, the only way they know how.

Tonic by Staci Hart

So this is my first Staci Hart book, and it was pretty good. I love the writing. Joel and Annika are two different people, but yet when they come together it’s perfect.

Not to mention, it’s very sexy.

15 bite

Joel is all heart, and he is sweet. Annika is all ice.

Annika is the producer of a reality show, and it’s her job to cause havoc, so it’s important that she doesn’t get attached.

Well Of course she does, because well…. Joel.

A tatted alpha/teddy bear.

What’s not to love?

yayaya

Oh, and he has a beard.

So why 3 stars? This is reality tv show, and I guess I wanted a more involved backdrop.

Maybe it was because I’ve already read a book about Reality tv  and it was done very well, so that could be the reason. Although I hate to compare books, I couldn’t help it.

Lastly, it was a bit cheesy for me, but if you follow my reviews, that’s common.

So if you’re looking for a sweet book about a tatted hero, give it a try.
