Reese 

Cooper Reeves was the boy-next-door. Every milestone, every memory of my youth was entangled with his.

We were inseparable… until college.
It wasn’t his friends, girls or even sports that came between us— it was me.

Tired of being in the friend zone, I finally made a move. Turns out it was the wrong one.

Cooper walked away to play his first year of professional football and left me behind with a broken heart.

Cooper 

It’s always been her. Even before I really knew what love was, Reese Latham was by my side, making me swear we’d be best friends forever.

And we were… until one night changed everything. I knew how she felt because I felt it too, but I pushed her away to save our friendship.

The longer we’re apart, the more I realize she’s not only my best friend, Reese is the love of my life.

I was kidding myself thinking I could let her go because now I know that living without her is the worst kind of agony.

This was a freaking great read! The absolute best beach read! Cooper and Reese are BFF’s and have been since they were little. They can finish each others sentences and always, always have each other’s backs. Each of them realize they have feelings for each other as they get older. And it’s the old story of “don’t want to lose them as a friend if we take it to the next level”. Literally, they never go there out of pure terror of them losing each other. That is why the title is perfect…because what these two put themselves through is pure agony!

Not only are these two childhood best friends, but they end up going to the same college together and having the same group of friends. A group of friends that ALL think these two should be together and bust them about it all the time. The same answer from Cooper and Reese is always “we are only friends”. As time goes on, the attraction does get talked about and let’s just say it doesn’t go well. It was a cringeworthy scene and they remain friends. Cooper’s guy friends are telling him he is making a mistake and missing out on something great. But he feels sick if he thinks about losing her.

By senior year of their college experience things are changing in a BIG way! Cooper might be leaving for his future dreams and Reese has found someone. This combo is wreaking havoc on their friendship and they are in pure agony.

At the end of the book, I was mentally drained watching these two fight their intense feelings for each other. Wedges are driven between them which I hated and I was dying! OMG…this story took a turn that I was not expecting and I was holding my breath until the very last page. We are left with a humungous cliffhanger! Dear lord I am praying this next book is out soon because I cannot wait to see what happens with these two!

Kitty Dates a Doctor

KITTY VALENTINE DATES A DOCTOR
By Jillian Dodd
Release Date: June 18

SPIN THE WHEEL. DATE THE GUY.

Six years ago, Kitty Valentine took the book world by storm when her sweet debut romance hit number one on the New York Times Best Sellers list, which was followed by a string of successful releases.

Her latest novel, however, totally bombs, causing her editor to suggest she write much sexier books.

To Kitty, writing smut is the literary equivalent of stripping.

But with no advance coming in and her royalties dipping to an all-time low, Kitty has no choice.

Armed with a hot-guy spinning prize wheel, made by her best friend, listing all the different types of men she will date and then write about, Kitty will be spinning—not stripping—her way back onto the best-sellers list.

*  Doctor romance
*  Hot neighbor
*  Laugh out loud funny
*  Standalone
*  Fast-paced, easy read

Well..my, my…Kitty does date a doctor pretty darn hard! I really like that Kitty is willing to throw her heart out there and give each guy a try whether she actually wants to or not. I feel all sorts of angst about this round and he just about killed me with how things turned. I was rooting for Mr. Doctor. And Matt…I wish you’d wake up and see what’s right across the hall. But these books are fun and entertaining. I’m addicted to my Kitty saga and can’t wait to see where her misadventures take her next!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Donna

 What kind of idiot gets on my bad side on his first day at my school? Hendrix Hawthorn is arrogant, cocky, infuriatingly attractive and clearly doesn’t realise I can make his life hell.

Which is exactly what I intend to do… until he shows up in the one place no one knows I go to – the one place that makes me feel alive. Now my reputation is in his hands, but I’ll be damned if I go down without a fight.

Hendrix

What kind of spoiled brat thinks I’ll just fall at her feet like the rest of these jerks? Donna Mead is a stone-cold bitch and I don’t want anything to do with her or her friends.

It’s bad enough I have to finish senior year at Fulton Academy – exactly the kind of place where I made the single biggest mistake of my life. I just want to keep my head down, get decent grades… until she shows up where she doesn’t belong. Now I can’t seem to stop myself from trying to prevent Donna from ruining her life like I did.

This is the second book in the Devilbend Dynasty series and in this installment, we get all things Donna and Hendrix. We met Donna in the first book as Mena’s loyal, take no shit cousin. You could tell right away she had a story behind her, and I couldn’t wait to hear it. Hendrix is a new player in the game at Fulton Academy and thankfully we get a whole lot of him in this book.

Donna is the queen bee of the school. The girl who is picture perfect on the outside but in reality is barely keeping her head above water on the inside. She is used to always getting who and what she wants so when the new guy at school doesn’t bow down like a good boy she declares war.

“You try to be what everyone expects you to be, but deep down, even you must know you can’t control everything.”

Hendrix isn’t in the mood for anyone’s shit at Fulton Academy. All he wants is to escape his past and get through this year. But then Donna Mead steps in his path and his whole plan is shot to hell. She is wild and reckless and reminds him so much of himself. Or rather the person he used to be. He finds himself trying to help her as they play this crazy game of push and pull. She is everything he wants to avoid and he’s everything she hates but they can’t stay away from each other.

“Donna Mead was a fucking force of nature, and if I wasn’t careful, I had a feeling she would knock me to my knees like a goddamn landslide.”

I like that this book had a little bit of a twist on the whole enemies to lovers/bully romance. Donna was more the bully to Hendrix and she played the role well. I loved Hendrix and hated that he thought his past defined him but loved that he chose to help someone else. His past is so heartbreaking and I can only imagine how that would change someone. As much as I loved Hendrix, I really disliked Donna. I was looking forward to her story. I don’t know if it’s because the whole “dark” Donna was put out there so early but to me, it just wasn’t working. I loved how loyal she was to her family and friends but that’s the extent of my love for all things Donna. I just thought her story was a cluster fuck and try as I may, I just couldn’t with her. I did love Mena, Turner, Harlow and Amaya in this story and all the angst and drama we got along the way. Hendrix was for sure my favorite of them all. I liked this book but definitely is not my favorite in the series.

The Girl in the Love Song by Emma Scott ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

Girl in a love song banner

At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…

The Girl in the Love Song, book one in the Lost Boys, an interconnected coming-of-age series of standalones, from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, is live!

unnamed (9) 

Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice.

Until Violet.

No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back.

Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications.

But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?

The Girl in the Love Song features two original songs written by Emma herself.

WOW! I mean…WOW! Completely emotional after reading this book. So good. The ups and downs were great. The flow was awesome. I loved the characters. Miller and Violet won me over immediately. They were perfect for each other. I wasn’t convinced they would make it. I really wasn’t. Not until the very end. Emma did a great job with this book. I couldn’t put it down.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 3, 2020

BLURB

I should have died.

I should have been forgotten.

But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.

Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.

Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.

Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.

Used to be.

And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.

I’m told that’s me.

But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.

A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.

I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?

This book gave me ALL and I mean ALL the feels. Happy, sad, crying, laughing, despair, hope, joy…you freaking name it, it had it. I will be keeping this review short because I don’t want readers to have tooooooo much. It’s best to experience it for yourself and I don’t want to ruin anything.Asher is the front man in a rock band and just by looks is your typical rocker bad boy. But oh, is there so much more to him. He is a devoted and I mean 100% devoted husband, a great dad and great friend. He is head over heels with his wife and only love, Ember. I have never read two characters that embody more perfectly the word “soulmate”. The author makes their love ooze off the page and I felt it in my gut.

Tragedy strikes this amazing couple and Asher is crushed. I mean crushed. He is not the same man and feels like a part of him is lost forever. There is a hole in his heart that he thinks will never be completed. He carries on being the dutiful husband (you will see what I’m talking about) and raises his daughter.

Until one day, years later, a miracle happens and his loving wife is among the land of the living and he feels his heart will explode from happiness. Only that happiness is short lived and it’s one of the most heartbreaking things I have read. *Insert ugly cry here*.

I totally fell in love with Asher. It’s so true about don’t judge a book by its cover. I wanted him to be real and I wanted to immediately marry him! I loved his love for his wife, his marriage and his determination to keep that love going. There is so much more to this awesome book so please go read it!!
