ARC Review: Imperfect Truth by Ava Harrison


This book was brilliant! I honestly cannot even put into words how much I loved this book right now. I have been trying to think of what to say, but really the only thing that keeps coming to mind is that I really think this book just needs to be experienced. Imperfect Truth is Ava Harrison's debut novel, and if this is what we can expect in the future I honestly cannot wait to see what else she has coming! This book was fantastic and such a journey. I honestly thought I knew where this was going, but I could not have predicted how everything was going to play out.

Ava can't remember the last time that she was truly happy with her husband. At one time he was her best friend, but now he seems to feel indifferent when it comes to her. Lost in a world that she feels like an outsider in, Ava feels truly alone until a message changes everything. Ava spends her time blogging, and when a popular and handsome author takes an interest in her she feels herself coming back to life. As the two begin to chat, she begins to believe in love and life again. 

This book is truly a book of rediscovering who Ava is and what she wants out of life. She feels lost and alone, and utterly broken at times. Though she once thought her husband was everything she needed, her life is nothing like she pictured and she feels as though he doesn't care about her at all. Ava's husband seems to never fight for her, and she is always feeling as though she is a low priority compared to his work and his family. His mother treats her horribly, and he does nothing to stand up for her. Ava really needed someone and something to wake her up, and though it wasn't ideal, she did find that. Ava started to feel beautiful again and as though someone really saw her. The more she began to receive messages, the more she started to change. But you could really tell that she was always searching for something or someone, and it was clear that she had some issues deep down that needed to be dealt with. I loved Ava's journey so much, and it was beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. I knew something had to change and that things couldn't continue with her still married, while also spending so much time talking to someone else. Something had to give, and it was a really tough thing to watch at times. 

Overall, this is a book that I think needs to be read blind. I think that if you know all the details ahead of time, you really would lose out on the experience. Ava's story is not easy and it isn't pretty, but the flaws and cracks are what makes her so easy to relate to. I think that every person goes through at least one time in their life that they feel lost and alone, and they struggle with where they are in life versus where they thought that they would be. Not only that, but I think that anyone in a committed relationship or marriage also goes through some of that as well. Relationships take a lot of work, and sometimes a distance grows that seems almost impossible to close. I think that this book is a must read for anyone who has felt any of those things, and it shows that though the road is often hard, that where we end up can be better than what we ever imagined or planned on. I really cannot say enough good things about this book, but it really is one that I would recommend everyone read. Imperfect Truth was emotional and captivating, and I could not put it down. Ava Harrison instantly drew me into her story and with each word I found the outside world falling away as I couldn't focus on anything but this book. I loved her writing style, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what she writes next.

ARC Review: Heartfelt Lies by Kristy Love


Heartfelt Lies is the second book in the Undone series by Kristy Love. This book can be read as a standalone, but the characters in this series are interconnected. This book was really good, and I liked the characters. They were flawed and real, but I liked that they weren't perfect and they felt like you could really relate to them. They struggled, but it was about their journey and how they were able to pick themselves up after falling that mattered. 

When Jax first saw Cassie he knew that he needed to get to know her. Cassie made him work for it, but eventually gave in to the attraction between them. The more she got to know him, the more of a connection they each felt. But when Jax's life began to fall apart, so did their relationship. Cassie knew that she had to leave Jax, even if it was the last thing she wanted to do. But she couldn't put up with his lies anymore or the man he had become. Now five years later, they haven't spoken and Cassie is set to marry someone else. But Jax isn't willing to let Cassie go without a fight, and he is determined to prove to her that he really has changed and is the man she always wanted him to be. 

Jax and Cassie both had their issues in this story, and I will admit that I had a few problems with each of them. They handled several things poorly and they were both flawed. But they were real and that is what made them so easy to like despite their issues. Jax had a lot of bad things happen in his life, and he didn't know what to do. He took the easy way out and got himself in a bad situation. He never stopped loving Cassie though, and it was clear that he just didn't know how to handle things. He felt like he had to be the strong one, and I really wish that he had asked for help when he needed it. It broke my heart to see him trying so hard, yet falling so hard that you knew rock bottom was coming. He was so sweet and loving and such a good guy, that it was really tough to see him lose everything that mattered. Cassie loved him and stuck by him so long, but she had some really tough choices to make considering her situation. I really believed that both Cassie and Jax's sister Ry made the right choice in walking away from Jax. He needed to see what he stood to lose, and I really think they had no other option. When Jax reentered Cassie's life though, I knew she had to be cautious. She needed to see the changes in him and take things slow. But I did think that her mind games went a bit too far, and that drove me nuts. I was glad that her sister Roxie let her have it and got her to see just what she had been doing. Cassie and Jax clearly never stopped loving one another, and I really think that these two belonged together. It was hard to see them go through so much, but I never gave up hope that they would find their way back to one another. 

Overall, this was a really great story. It was emotional and hard to get through at times because it was so heartbreaking, but it was also filled with hope and love. This book really was a journey for all these characters, and I really liked seeing them face their issues and move forward with their lives. They deserved to be happy, and that wasn't always easy for them. But they were all great and I was really happy with how things ended up. I have to say I can't wait for Roxie's story. She was so much fun, and I loved her for being so willing to tell it how it was. She didn't pull any punches, and I found myself really relating to her character. I can't wait to get to know her better and see what happens next in this series. If you are looking for something real and emotional, I highly recommend this story. I look forward to more from Kristy Love, especially Roxie's story!

Review: Going the Distance by Christa Cervone


Going the Distance continues the Down for the Count series by Christa Cervone and picks up where On the Ropes left off. Make sure that you start with On the Ropes before reading this book, as Salem and Gabe's story starts there. I read this book right after I finished the first book, and I would really recommend reading these back to back if possible. There is a lot that happens in the first book that affects this book, and I think they are best read together. That being said, I had some issues with the first book and that was also the case here. Overall I liked the story, but it wasn't without some mixed feelings at times. 

Gabriel "The Saint" Vega had a tough childhood and had finally reached what he had been working for. With his career taking off, he was thrown for a loop when he met Salem. Salem was his new sponsor's girlfriend, and although he tried to stay away he found himself unable to avoid her. But Salem and Gabe's relationship was over before it ever really began with everything standing in their way. Now he is focused on fighting and saving his brother as Jase attempts to stay clean. But when Gabe and Salem run into each other, they realize that the time and distance haven't changed their feelings for one another. Will they fight for one another, or will there be too many things standing in their way? 

I hated Salem when we first met her in the first book, but about half way through she won me over. I figured at that point it was smooth sailing as far as her being a likable character. Apparently I figured wrong, because I spent pretty much the first half of this book hating her as well. I couldn't believe that we were back in the same situation, and honestly I was fed up. I didn't understand her reasoning for not breaking up with her cheating sleazebag of a boyfriend Blaine, and I didn't like what she was doing to Gabriel. Gabe had more than enough to deal with, and his feelings for Salem were true and unwavering. I hated watching him stick around because he loved her, all the while having to watch her repeatedly with Blaine. Gabe on the other hand I couldn't have loved more! He was sweet and caring, and even more of a good guy than he was before. He was great with his brother and he was determined to be there for Salem no matter what she put him through. I really felt like he deserved better, but I couldn't help but admire his devotion to Salem. 

Overall, I thought that this was a good story even though I did have issues with it over the course of both books. Salem was one of my biggest problems, and her inability to end a toxic relationship that was long overdue. I also recommend that if you are not a fan of cheating that you probably don't read this series. There was cheating in both books, and I really felt like it was unnecessary. I didn't like it, and that was part of why I felt like Gabe deserved better than what he was getting. I will say that I liked how this book ended though, and I especially enjoyed the epilogue. It was great to see them years later, and I really loved everything that happened with Frankie and Gabe. He had always been a father to Gabe, and the way things went for those two was especially sweet. I think if you like sexy fighter stories that this is one that you might want to give a shot. It was enjoyable besides the few criticisms I had, and Gabe alone is worth the read.

Feature and Giveaway: Heartfelt Lies by Kristy Love


Loving Cassie was effortless.
She was a thirst I couldn’t quench.

She was everything I needed, but nothing I deserved.
I failed her more times than I could count.

I lied relentlessly.
And she always forgave me.

Until she couldn’t.

Maybe I deserved to be left behind.

* * *

Jax swept me off my feet with his disheveled hair and his easy smile.
I loved him fiercely.
He made me believe in the fairytale.

Then the walls crumbled around me.
The lies never ended.
I left him behind. I had no choice.
I mourned the loss of him.

But I moved on.
I created a new life,
Now, I was marrying someone else.

Where do we go now that he’s back?

ARC Review: Busted by Shiloh Walker


Busted is book three of Shiloh Walker’s Barnes Brothers series. I love Shiloh Walker, everything I have read as Shiloh and as J.C. Daniels I love. The Barnes Brothers hit the jack pot in the genetic lottery, they are all drop dead gorgeous and excel in whatever they do. It’s a great family and I love family orientated series even big famous ones like the Barnes’.

Trey Barnes author/father extraordinaire is so caught up with the grief over the death of his wife and raising his son he hasn’t even looked at another woman he has tried he dated but nothing has felt right that is until he drops his son off at the library and meets Ressa Bliss, of course he doesn’t find out her name for a couple of months. Ressa has a past one she wishes she could forget especially the guilt, but everything she does now is about raising her little cousin. Lusting from afar on both their parts last for the better part of a year until Ressa is helping out with a writer’s convention and finally finds out who the hottie with the adorable little boy is none other than an author she loves. One hot and steamy night cement their feelings for each other but with Ressa’s past she worries about what that will do to the famous author and his even more famous brothers. She plays it off as it was just suppose to be a one night deal. Until they find out her cousin and his son are in the same Kindergarten class. Trey admits his feelings for her and how, for the first time in five years he is feeling sexual about a woman and he wants to explore the chance for the relationship. After they clear the air about everything it seems like everything is hunky dory until both of their past come out and try to tear them apart.

Overall this was a great read, what starts as a light read but has slight dark over tones but isn’t terribly dark. I loved the characters and the storyline and the past histories are great, I love the hinting at Travis’ story I can’t wait for it.

ARC Review: Exposed by Tracy Wolff


Exposed is the third book in the Ethan Frost series by Tracy Wolff. In order to understand this book you will need to have read the previous books, Ruined and Addicted, before starting this one. I have a really tough time figuring out where to start with this review. I absolutely loved the first book in this series. I loved Ethan and Chloe flaws and all, and I could tell that they belonged together right away. But in the second book, I felt like it was a lot of the same thing over and over. Unfortunately, there was a bit of that here too. Though there was some progress made, there were also a lot of the same things I had issues with before on repeat.

Ethan has Chloe back in his life, and he will do whatever it takes to protect her. Though Chloe wants nothing more than to move forward and try to leave the past behind, Ethan is determined to get revenge. He wants his brother to pay for what he has done, and he will stop at nothing to make sure that happens one way or another. The more his obsession with revenge begins to take over his life, the more Ethan risks losing Chloe for good.

I honestly don't know who annoyed me more in this book, Ethan or Chloe. Chloe continued to be insecure and overreacted to things, resulting in a melt down and an inevitable apology. Though at least this time around she didn't fully run from Ethan. (even if she did leave him in a different city and returned to Ethan's house without so much as a call, text, or note...seriously who does that?) Though at times their relationship seemed to be making progress, they would still inevitably screw things up in the same ways they have throughout the past two books, and at this point that is getting really old. Ethan promised to give Chloe complete honesty this time around, and most of the time he did...at least when she directly asked him. When she didn't though, he continued his mission for revenge and his "protection" of her and felt it was okay to keep things from her. Because apparently lying by omission is different than just flat out lying. 

While Ethan and Chloe still had all the attraction and chemistry that we have come to expect from them, the first half of the book was pretty much sex followed by declarations of love followed by more sex. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. The entire first half of the book felt like that is all there was, and I really believe that it could have been reduced to a few chapters of that without losing anything necessary to the story. The second half of the book things did start to pick up though, and that is where the real story started to happen. While I enjoyed the second half, I really wish that it would have started sooner, because now we are left the same as we have been at the end of the two previous books. Things are left unresolved and we have to go through another long wait to finally get the answers that could have been given in this book had we not wasted time on seeing these two have so much sex and tell each other how much they loved one another. Though I am not against that, it does get old when that is literally all that happens for half of a book. I hadn't known prior to reading this book that another book in this series was coming out and I believed that this was the final story. Flawed will be the next installment though and is scheduled for a December 2015 release. I really hope that it will be the final book in this series, because honestly things keep going downhill for me when it comes to these characters. What started off fantastic has turned into something that seems to be drawn out and repetitious to the point of killing everything I loved to begin with. I really want these characters to get the ending they deserve and I am hoping that will happen in Flawed, because I am not sure that I can handle much more of the same when it comes to these characters.

Feature and Giveaway: Exposed by Tracy Wolff


Ethan Frost, the irresistible leading man from the New York Times bestsellers Ruined and Addicted, returns once again in Exposed—a novel that’s perfect for fans of J. Kenner and Sylvia Day.

Will Ethan Frost go too far for the woman he loves?

The moment Chloe Girard walked into my life, she exposed secrets and emotions I always thought were best kept buried.

She wants to move on, to ignore the past. But I can’t do that. Not when she still suffers. And not when the man who hurt her remains unscathed. So when I discover the perfect opportunity to make him pay for what he did to Chloe, I can’t walk away, no matter the consequences.

But there’s a fine line between justice and obsession. As I turn up old crimes and new lies, I know that I’m playing with fire—and risking the very foundations of our relationship.

My love for Chloe is absolute. I just hope it’s enough to save us both.

ARC Review: Seduced by Sunday by Catherine Bybee


Catherine Bybee has been on my to-read list for a while now. I especially had an eye out for the “Weekday Brides” series. I was really interested in the plot. I liked the idea of Meg Rosenthal, who is a matchmaker, needing some help of her own in the love department. I’ve read many match making books and really like them. I also like the idea Valentino Masini, very successful in his own right finding a challenge with Meg. I was instantly interested in this book because of the combination of all the above and also because of the great reviews that the series has.

First, I have to confess that I probably went into this book with too high of expectations. Although I enjoyed Meg it was hard to really connect with her or get her. There were parts of her personality that were cute and interesting but at the same time she was cynical and full of doubt. Instead of making these characteristics diverse it really made it hard for me to like Meg. I also enjoyed Valentino but also found him too difficult to get.

As a couple they were cute but I thought that the author rushed their chemistry too quickly. I know often times chemistry is not looked as an important aspect but I love when characters challenge each other and really have good banter. Meg and Valentino had good banter for about 10 pages and then they were falling over each other and finding the other irresistible. The secondary characters were fun and interesting and added to the story but really I fought hard to stay interested in the story. The idea of an island were famous people can go with complete anonymity was so fun and I really liked it. Overall, I liked the story because I wanted to see what the author would do with the hero and heroine. I also wanted to know how she would resolve the issues with the secondary characters but this was not a -can’t-put-it-down read for me. It was more of a book I felt compelled to finish. I’m sure that fans of Bybee and the series will love the story. I plan to read more books in the series and I’m hoping to enjoy them more.

Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass


The Heir is book number four in Kiera Cass’s Selection series. Honestly, I was surprised that she continued after the third book because everything seemed finished. So I am going to try to review this without giving spoilers to the end of The One.

Fast forward about twenty years from the end of The One and we find King Maxon and his Queen have four children. Their daughter, Eadlyn, was the first born causing the King and Queen to decide to change the law and not exclude females from taking the thrown. Following Eadlyn, the two had three boys, one of which is Eadlyn’s twin brother, Ahren. There has been some unrest in the kingdom lately so the King and Queen suggest to Eadlyn to have her own selection to find a husband. They think it will distract the kingdom so that they can come up with solutions to the real problems.

Eadlyn is not ok with this turn of events. She reluctantly agrees only to secretly plot ways to scare off all of her suitors. I did not like Eadlyn in the slightest. She is spoiled and rude and judgmental to the extreme. At one point she just surprises the group of selected by marching into their room and humiliating the ones she has picked to leave. Eadlyn’s one saving grace is that she somewhat tries to learn from her mistakes.

I did like a lot of the supporting characters. We see a lot of cameos from the first three books. Some of the selected boys were quite charming, and Eadlyn’s brothers were nice and funny. Ahren in particular was pretty amazing. He is in love with a princess of France, and his devotion to her is so adorable. Sadly, though, his relationship with Camille is the only romance you will find in this book. There really wasn’t romance anywhere else.

I don’t know what it is about these books that keeps me reading. I get so completely frustrated with them but I can’t help myself. I read this one in the space of one day. Something about Keira’s writing is addictive; I just can’t put my finger on what it is. It reminds me of the way I feel about the Twilight series. The books were honestly horrible, but I couldn’t stop myself once I started.

ARC Review: The Day of the Wave by Becky Wicks


I have really enjoyed books by Becky Wicks before, so I was really excited when I read the blurb for The Day of the Wave. Not only did I expect it to be written well, but I couldn't help but be drawn to the content. It was something I hadn't ever seen in a romance novel before, and I was instantly intrigued about a book that centered around a real life natural disaster. Though I don't necessarily agree with the book's Amazon tagline of being "An inspirational historical romance novel" that followed the real life events of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, I did find it very interesting. Yes the book does touch on the tsunami and how things happened in real life, this book is mainly about Ben and Isla reconnecting in the future. 

Ben and Isla met as teenagers just days before the Boxing Day tsunami hit. They both suffered terrible losses as a result and were never the same. Both of them were left with scars, Isla's on the outside while Ben's were internal. But they never knew that the other survived. Now ten years later, a chance meeting reconnects them, and they jump at the chance to spend time together once again. Though a lot has changed as the years have passed, Ben and Isla realize that the connection they once shared has remained. Though no one understands everything that they went through but each other, is it possible for them to leave their pasts behind for a chance at a future together? 

I liked Ben and Isla a lot. I thought that they were great for one another, and I loved that they had a connection that had never faded. These two understood one another in a way that no one else could, and they just seemed to always know what the other needed. They supported one another and encouraged each other through good times and bad. It was great to see them push one another, while also understanding that sometimes they just needed to avoid certain subjects. They were both still struggling with so much, and the patience between them was exactly what they needed. They helped one another while also realizing that some things had to be done on their own time table rather than what others thought. I loved the friendship between them and how they had always held onto everything that they had talked about and felt years before. They had such great chemistry, but it was the connection between them that made their bond unbreakable.

While I really liked this story and seeing Ben and Isla reconnect, I did think that there were times my interest started to wane a little with all the details given. Becky Wicks does a great job of describing things so that you feel like you are actually seeing the cities with your own eyes, but I do think that it can sometimes cause the reader to get a little lost in the details. I also had a tough time with how much others factored into this story, when I really wanted Ben and Isla focused on reconnecting with each other. I kept waiting for things to change between them so that we could see them start to figure things out together as a couple, and it took quite awhile before they were each able to actually move forward without being with someone else. I was glad that there was no cheating though, even if that meant that Ben and Isla together took a bit longer. I think that this book was a really interesting story, and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something different. I know this won't be the last I read from Becky Wicks , and I look forward to seeing what she writes next.

ARC Review: Yield: A Legal Affairs Story by Sawyer Bennett


Yield is the third and final part in Cal and Macy's story from Sawyer Bennett. These have to be read in order as the story continues from one part to the next. However you do not need to have read the Legal Affairs series to understand, though Mac and Matt do play a large part in these books. While I have liked the first two installments of this serial, I haven't loved this serial like I typically do anything written by Sawyer Bennett. For some reason I am just not finding myself able to connect with these characters or their story the way I have with her other books. This was a good ending to their story though, and I did like how things played out for them.

Yield picks up after the events of Grind, with Macy's past suddenly catching up to her. Though her and Cal have made a lot of progress in their relationship, Macy is insistent that Cal should get as far away from her as possible because she is broken. Cal refuses to let Macy push him away though and will do whatever it takes to show her that she can lean on him. Can Cal help Macy move forward with her life, or will her past destroy everything that they are building together? 

I have had my ups and downs with these characters over the course of this series, but Cal and Macy were both better in this book than they had been previously. I felt like Cal wasn't as all over the place as he was in Grind, and Macy was finally starting to deal with her past rather than avoid it. I will say that they both handled a few things poorly in this one, but I thought that overall they seemed to finally be moving towards a future together in a positive way. They had both realized their feelings for one another and weren't running from it. Instead they were doing everything that they could to protect the other in the only ways that they knew how, even if they weren't the best.

With everything that happened in this installment, Cal and Macy spent most of this installment separated and I think that this book suffered a bit for it. It didn't pack the usual amount of heat that I have come to expect from Sawyer Bennett. I also thought that these two didn't have the initial spark that they did in Clash, but honestly I expected that after seeing how things had changed between them throughout the first two installments. When this series started, Cal and Macy couldn't stand one another and they were constantly bickering and the banter was fantastic. However that instantly changed after they hooked up the first time, and I have to admit that disappointed me. I was hoping that eventually they would get a little bit of that back but they never did. While they had chemistry and the sex between them was hot, I missed how fiery they were in the beginning outside the bedroom. While I think that this series was okay, it definitely wasn't my favorite by Sawyer Bennett. I still think that she is a great author, I just wasn't able to personally connect with this one. Fans of the Legal Affairs series will enjoy seeing Matt and Mac though, and I think that this might be one that just wasn't for me.
