Review: Felix by Elizabeth Reyes


I was really excited to read Felix by Elizabeth Reyes. I am a huge sports romance fan, and I love me some sexy fighters. That being said though, this book was good but not great. For some reason I found myself not really connecting with the main characters as much as I had hoped for. While I liked Felix, I just never really cared about Ella. I think that she was my biggest problem in this book, and that kept me from really enjoying this one as much as I could have.

Ella works hard to attend school, work and take care of her family. But she also devotes most of her time to working at the 5th Street Gym teaching self defense classes and educating the community. She has personal reasons for being so dedicated to the cause, but she has made it her mission to make self defense classes affordable for those that need them. When she first meets the sexy fighter Felix, she judges him based off what she has heard about his reputation. But she can't help but be drawn to him and knows that she is nothing like what he usually goes for with women. Soon though, Felix is pursuing her and is determined to show her that he isn't like what she has heard. Can Felix and Ella get over their pasts and let each other in? Or will Ella have heard too many things about Felix to give him a chance to show her who he really is?

I liked Felix. He definitely never had a shortage of women, and he never made any apologies about who he was. But he was so take with Ella that he had no problem giving that up. He wanted to be a better person and prove to her that he could be exactly what she needed. He was sweet and kind with her, and I loved the patience he showed. He was great with her and really showed just how much he was interested in the whole package with her. Ella was the one I had issues with. Although both her and Felix had both been through a lot and handled things differently, I actually didn't care for the way that Ella let her ex Grayson have such control of her life. While I didn't agree with Felix drowning himself in women, Ella let Grayson treat her horribly and take things too far even though they had broken up. Ella might have been clear with her words to Grayson, but her actions told a completely different story. I wanted her to do something and she just kept letting things go for reasons that I thought weren't even close to good enough. It was amazing to me that Felix was as calm and cool about everything as he was. He handled things far better than she did, and I wouldn't have been so understanding had it been me in his shoes. While they had chemistry and connected, the crap with Grayson was just too much for me.

Overall, I thought that this could have been such a great story. Felix and Ella were good for each other, and I really believed that the love and support between them was a great foundation for a relationship. I just sort of lost the bond between them with all the drama and the way that Ella continued to let Grayson interfere in their relationship. As much as I wanted for her to grow a pair, she never really seemed to. Then besides all that drama, it seemed as though every other bad thing that could possibly happen did. It just got to be too much and was kind of a downer. The whole thing was a bit depressing, and I was wanting something more upbeat. I liked the idea of the epilogue, but I felt like it was just okay. We got a lot of different POVs, but it just didn't do much for me and I was left wondering why it was really even there. I think that this book had a lot of potential, but for me it just fell flat.

Feature and Giveaway: Felix by Elizabeth Reyes


They say the only good thing about hitting rock bottom is that it can't get any worse . . . or can it?

World famous boxing champ, Felix Sanchez, had it all—the fame, the fortune, and all the women any man could ask for. When the hours of partying followed by hours spent in court and in rehab begin to outnumber the hours he spends training, losing his title comes as no surprise to everyone. The world assumes he deserved to lose it.

Only those closest to Felix know the real truth behind his sudden downward spiral. And if Felix has his way, no one else ever will. With an uncertain future ahead of him, he heads back to his roots—5th Street—the gym that started it all for him. It's where he meets the humble but mighty little Ms. Ella.

The only times Felix had ever decided to forgo the usual meaningless fling and try a real relationship he was burned badly. Now the adorable but tenacious self-defense instructor has him considering this love thing one more time.

Then just when he begins to worry that his past is letting his possessive and jaded heart get the best of him, he's blindsided in the most brutal way—he's brought to his knees—to what could be the one low in his life he may never recover from.

ARC Review: Retrace by Sigal Ehrlich


I honestly couldn't wait to read Retrace by Sigal Ehrlich when I first saw the cover and read the blurb. I thought that this one sounded so good and I was really glad that it was a standalone novel. There have been so many serials and books in series lately, that I was really just looking forward to a good and complete book. However as much promise as this book had, I found myself having several issues with it and it wasn't what I had been hoping for.

Nia Martins and Reeves Mitchell have both been struggling to deal with their pain and guilt. They each lost someone three years ago, and have been unable to move forward. They first meet when they wind up in the same hotel room after a mistake. But soon they are running into each other in their new apartment building, as well as the bar where Reeves works and Nia's new friends often go. As much as they are drawn to one another, things between them are complicated and they find themselves trying to fight what is between them. But when they are no longer able to fight it, they find themselves connecting with each other in a way they have never been able to do before. But as their new friendship with benefits starts to take over their lives, they soon begin to worry about how it is affecting each of them. Nia can't lose someone else and is afraid that losing Reeves will wreck her, while Reeves questions why his feelings for Nia seem to consume all his thoughts. Can Nia and Reeves figure out a way to move forward and let go of the past together?

I liked Reeves and Nia for the most part, but I found them hard to connect with. Reeves was sweet and caring, but he was also completely blind when it came to some things. His actions towards hist best friend's sister Katie beyond frustrated me, and I hated that he allowed her to get away with so much. He tended to focus on her more than he ever did Nia and it really irritated me. Especially because one minute he was so great and tender with Nia, and the next he was cold and unfeeling towards her. I hated that he didn't treat her better and that he often didn't even give her an explanation or reason. Nia was sweet and kind and I loved her as a dance teacher. She was great with kids and also with Reeves. But she also would drop things far too easily and I didn't understand why she put up with everything that she did. She would get mad, but he would sweet talk her and she instantly forgave him with little to no consequences. It just came off as weak and I didn't care for it. I also didn't like that it was brought up a lot that she was from Brazil, and yet she didn't seem to have any of the characteristics that go along with that. It felt forced and as though the author had to constantly remind the reader of that, because otherwise it was easily forgotten. I did think that Reeves and Nia had a lot of chemistry and they definitely could generate some steam. But there was just something missing from these two for me.

Overall, I thought that this was a story that could have been great but unfortunately got lost in the details. It felt forced at times, and I was never able to really connect with the characters or story. I felt as though Katie was far too much drama, and I really hated her. I don't think that she ever was able to redeem herself, and she just came off as a selfish and immature little girl. I wanted to see her experience some growth or understanding after everything, but it was clear that she only thought of herself. Reeves and Nia had really poor communication, and I thought that they seemed to just be going around in circles for most of the story. They were both having strong feelings for one another and jealous of others, and yet they couldn't even tell each other that they liked one another. It got old, and after awhile I started to lose interest. I think that Sigal did a good job of introducing more characters in this story that she could easily expand upon for future books though, and I am curious about Reeves' friend Jake. His relationship and situation were confusing but interesting, and I have to say I am intrigued enough to want to read more about it. I would read more from Sigal Ehrlich in the future despite my issues though, and I am curious to see what she does next.

Audiobook Review: Rival by Penelope Douglas, Narrated by Abby Craden and Nelson Hobbs


I have been so excited to get Madoc's story ever since I read Bully! I thought that Penelope Douglas had such a great writing style, and I loved how new and different her characters were. I am really enjoying this series, and I like how unique her stories are. While I really liked Rival, I will say that I didn't love it as much as I did Bully and Until You. But I still highly recommend this series, and I can't wait to get the next book!

After two years of being away, Fallon is back from boarding school. She left without a word, and Madoc never knew what happened. He only got the story that his father and stepmother told him. Back then, Madoc and Fallon had nothing to do with each other during their days, but their nights were a different story. They had just started to realize their feelings for one another when suddenly everything changed. But two years apart and many secrets now between them have changed everything. Madoc and Fallon find themselves more attracted to each other than ever, but they are both scared to let the other see how they really feel after everything that happened in the past.

I loved Madoc. He was so funny and charming in the first two books, but you could tell that there was so much about him that he didn't show to others. I loved his friendship with Jared, and it was good to see how close to Jax he had become in Rival. But it was also great to see some of his past and how he had been shaped by everything that happened with Fallon. He had this facade that most people assumed was how he really was, but it was clear that no one knew him the way Fallon did. Fallon was strong and a take no crap kind of girl, which I really loved. She was tough when she had to be, but she had such a vulnerable side as well. As hard as she fought it, she couldn't keep Madoc from getting under her skin. The feelings between these two ran so deep, but they had both been unaware of so much. The one thing that had never changed though was the chemistry between them. These two belonged together, and it was clear that they were beyond attracted to one another.

My biggest issue with this story compared to the first two was that there was so much drama. It got a bit over the top towards the second half of this book, and I just felt like that sort of distracted me from the connection between Madoc and Fallon. There was just so much going on and it was a bit too much. But Madoc and Fallon's story was still great, and I continue to become a bigger fan of Penelope Douglas's with each new story I read of hers. I really enjoyed listening to Abby Craden and Nelson Hobbs tell the story, and I thought that they did a wonderful job of bringing this book to life. I loved that we got both a male and female narrator, and it felt like the reader was really able to get into the minds of each character. Abby and Nelson did a great job of showing each emotion and feeling of the characters, and keeping the voices different enough that you could always tell them apart. I am really looking forward to more from both Abby Craden and Nelson Hobbs in the future, and I can't wait to see what Penelope Douglas has in store for Jax next. I loved getting to know him better in this book, and I can just tell that his story is going to be interesting. I definitely recommend this series to NA fans, but I think that romance fans in general will really enjoy each of these books as well.

ARC Review: Flirting With Love by Melissa Foster


Flirting With Love is the 18th book in the Love In Bloom series by Melissa Foster and is the 10th Bradens book. I really love this series and I have enjoyed every book that I have read by Melissa Foster. Each of these books can be read as standalones, but they do contain interconnected characters. If you are looking for a good contemporary read, you really can't go wrong with anything by Melissa Foster. While it isn't necessary to start at the beginning of this series, I think that it is really enjoyable to see the series progress and how each of the characters have grown and changed over the course of the whole series.

Elisabeth Nash has always wanted to live in Trusty, Colorado where she once spent summers with her Aunt Cora. She finally decides to leave LA behind and make the big move after she inherits her aunt's farmette and business. Upon arrival she discovers that she has also inherited her aunt's many animals, and when a piglet needs help she goes to the local vet and neighbor Ross Braden. The attraction between them is instant, and both Ross and Elisabeth find themselves enjoying the other's company. Soon they are hanging out and their feelings are far more than neighborly. Ross doesn't date Trusty women though and is hesitant to start anything with Elisabeth due to small town gossip. But before long he finds himself unable to fight the connection he feels to Elisabeth. As Elisabeth tries to find a way to get in with the locals, Ross is determined to help her in any way that he can. But will Trusty and it's residents welcome Elisabeth like she has always dreamed of?

I really liked Ross. I have been waiting to get my hands on the sexy vet's story since he was first introduced. I knew that he was going to be one of my favorites, and he definitely exceeded my expectations. He was a genuinely good guy that loved animals, and was passionate about their care. The best thing about Ross though was that with him what you see is what you get. He was straightforward with what he was looking for and I loved that he didn't play games. He was also so sweet and I loved how supportive he was with Elisabeth. Elisabeth was the perfect match for Ross. She was kind and caring, and she gave so much to others. She would go out of her way to make them happy and to help in any way that she could. She was great with animals as well, and I loved how much these two had in common. Sometimes opposites attract, but with Elisabeth and Ross these two were so much alike and they just fit together. They had the emotional connection and similar interests, and they had off the charts chemistry as well.

Overall, this was definitely one of my favorites of this entire series! I loved Ross and Elisabeth, and I thought that their story was great. I really loved seeing Elisabeth win over Trusty and it's residents, and I thought that her growing friendship with Ross's sister Emily was so much fun! I loved how easily they got along and it was good to see her bond so instantly with Ross's family. She just fit in with everyone even though she was different from everyone in town. I highly recommend this book as well as the rest of the series to contemporary fans. These books are always enjoyable, and I know that I will have a great time reading anything by Melissa Foster. I can't wait for more in this series and from Melissa Foster in the future.

Review: Devil's Game by Joanna Wylde


As I continue my Reapers Binge, “Devil’s Game” was a change of pace and storyline. Where the previous books I read were about The Reapers, this is about Em, Picnic-The Reapers President’s daughter. Because Em is a young woman many of the topics covered here were not as intense as the previous books I read.

Em is the daughter of Picnic. She is sweet, kind and very innocent. Her father goes above and beyond to make sure that no one messes with his daughter. That doesn’t make Em too happy since men are afraid of her father. She meets Liam “Hunter” Blake” online and they start to chat. They become friends and they decide to meet.

Hunter was a really interesting hero. He is a Devil’s Jack, sworn enemies of The Reapers. Hunter had a very rough life and he grew up with the Devil’s Jack and they became his only family. He has undying loyalty to them as Em does to The Reapers. Liam wasn’t as horrible as the hero’s in the previous books. He was more confused and uncertain, since him and Em are relatively young they deal with different types of issues.

I really enjoyed “Devil’s Game.” Just like the previous books I read, I could not put this book down! Em was such a fantastic heroine. She was so likeable, yet young and na├»ve. Liam was also very sweet he genuinely cared for Em and fought to be with her.

I have one more book to read in “The Reapers” series and then my life can continue as before, I became so obsessed with this series that I pushed all my other reading aside. Since this is my third book by Joanna Wylde, I can say with 100% certainty-she does not disappoint!

ARC Review: Betting On It by Violet Blake


Betting On It is the first book in the Callahan Brewery Series by Violet Blake and is also her debut novel. I thought that the blurb and the cover for this story were just too good to pass up, so I was willing to take a risk on this friends to lovers story when I got the chance. I am really glad that I did, and ended up enjoying this story a lot.

Blair Bartlett had been living her life for everyone but herself until a near death experience changed everything for her. She left behind her family and ex-fiance in order to start over near her best friends. On the night before what should have been her wedding, her friends decide that she needs to get out of her rut and they challenger her to complete a sex bucket list. If she doesn't complete the list within the thirty days they give her, then a nude painting of her that she painted will be auctioned off for charity. Blair ends up accepting the help of her best friend's cousin and her lifelong crush to help her complete her list. But Blair also sets a deadline for their relationship, so when the thirty days are over so will their friends with benefits arrangement. But Sawyer has also wanted Blair for as long as he can remember, and he isn't willing to let her go without a fight. Can Sawyer convince Blair that they belong together?

I really liked Sawyer and Blair. These two had a ton of issues on their own, and that made things between them really complicated. Both of them had wanted each other, but had never said anything. I felt like their communication in this story was really the biggest source of all their problems. Unfortunately it didn't really seem to get better as the story progressed. These two should have been working on trusting one another and letting them in rather than constantly running and avoiding their issues. I loved the banter between them though, and I thought that their history and friendship gave them a great base to build a relationship on. Sawyer was sweet and protective, and he was always so great about supporting Blair and being there for her when she needed him. Blair was the same for Sawyer, and I really liked seeing how she was so encouraging and reassuring when he needed it. These two had a great connection, and the chemistry between them was off the charts. I couldn't figure out how they had never tried anything before because of all the sparks between them.

Overall, I thought that this was a good story. I liked the characters and I can't wait to get to know some of them better. I thought that this one was fresh and kept me laughing the entire way through. Betting On It had it all, and I enjoyed the steamy stuff just as much as the emotional moments and the humorous ones. I will say that the ending was a bit rushed to me, and I wish that it hadn't been so abrupt. I felt like we were just starting to get to the good stuff and then it was over. But otherwise, I really didn't have any complaints at all. I would definitely recommend this one to NA fans, and I thought that this book was enjoyable and very easy to get lost in. I look forward to more from Violet Blake in the future.

Review: Status by J.A. Huss


I have been anxiously awaiting each installment in the Social Media series by JA Huss, so I couldn't wait for Status to release. This is part four in the series, and these need to be read in order. I really don't know how she does it, but JA Huss manages to top herself with each new installment. This series just keeps getting better and better, and I love Vaughn and Grace so much!

Vaughn and Grace are still dealing with everything that happened at the end of Block. Vaughn isn't giving up on a future with Grace and continues to pursue her. Grace and Vaughn finally start to make some progress and things between them seem to be better than ever. But then some truths are revealed that send them into turmoil once again.

This installment really showed Vaughn and Grace acknowledging not only their feelings, but also their fears. Things between them have become so real, and they are both in unfamiliar territory. I loved seeing them settle into their relationship a bit more though, and it was really great to see them having fun and enjoying one another. Their time spent together at Vaughn's place was so relaxed and easy, and it was such a different side of them. I have loved the heat and chemistry between them from the start, but it was really great to see another side to them. I liked that we were able to see them have a few normal moments, and it really showed how far they have come.

This part was shocking and I am still reeling after finishing this one. I am extremely anxious for more of these two, but I also find myself dreading the ending. I am not ready for this series to be over and I don't want to let go of these characters. That being said, I can't wait to find out what happens for them! I have a sort of love hate relationship with serials, but luckily JA Huss doesn't make us wait long for each installment. This series is an absolute must read, and I highly recommend that you check this one out if you haven't already! I can't wait to read more from JA Huss!

ARC Review: Wild by Sophie Jordan


I have been waiting for this book a very long time. When I finished the first 2 books of this series and I remember screaming at my friend "Where is Georgia?" I could not wait to find out what happened to her and the book did not disappoint.

At first, I was unsure of how things would play out being Logan was still in high school when this all started. I was worried that he would come off as immature and inexperienced. Instead, Sophie Jordan made Logan deliciously sexy. His age was made irrelevant with his sexiness and experience. He knew exactly what he was doing when it came to women and definitely had a thing or two to teach Georgia.

Georgia on the other hand, seemed act like a child. I was so concerned about her when reading Tease, and had high hopes for her but I found she acted very immature. I didn't like the way she was so easily manipulated by her mother and even Connor. She was slightly annoying with the way she kept playing with Logan's emotions but he was just so irresistible, she had no choice but to fall into his arms whenever Logan came around, and really who could blame her? Their chemistry was so intense and they left me wanting more every time they were together.

I must say I really enjoyed this series. Foreplay and Tease were fantastic but I must say Wild was by far my favorite. I did not think it could get any hotter than Reece and Shaw but Sophie Jordan really surpassed any standards I had set. She blew me away when she described Logan. I only wish this book would have kept going just so I could have more time enjoying him. He is incredibly hot and I was certainly left wanting a lot more of him.
