This was a book I have heard people raving about, I knew that I had to read it and see what the fuss was about, from the blurb I thought “okay, so this is gonna be another dark romance novel. . .” But it is so much more! There are layers upon layers to this story. Its more than just a basic she’s an escort and he’s in a dangerous profession and boom insta love! Haha not even close! 

From the prologue we immediately find out this is not gonna be your basic run of the mill romance novel and the story picks up from there! There are moments thay really broke my heart, Emily is doing whatever she can to take care of her son, being a mom to a child with special needs is a tough job and those women need to have statues built in their honor because they are truly heroes. Emily does what she does so she can afford all of Daniel’s medical needs and is saving up to accomplish her dream of opening a center for other families affected by Muscular Dystrophy. Such an inspiring dream but she’s not quite able to realize that dream yet. 

She gets a new booking and meets up with Marco and holy romantic tension Batman! Their chemistry sizzles from the first meeting, he’s like a hotter version of Michael Corelone. Suave, smooth, calculating and authoritative. Emily has this attraction to him which is rare and it throws her off that he can affect her that way. 

As their relationship progresses, certain business associates of Marco’s have taken notice of Emily and the danger factor is kicked in high gear! Marco’s alpha male protective side gets a chance to shine through and when it all comes down to the pulse pounding end we are left wanting to know just one thing. . . How’s it all gonna end?

I have had books by Geneva on my TBR list forever! Haha but when I saw the cover of this one and read the blurb I was all in, rearranged my list to bump this one to the top before the second book released. I am so glad I did! Its one of those books that could become the next great angsty summer TV show! There is drama, a lot of mystery, an elitist group of kids who have money and privilege and think that they rule the world,  a down to earth heroine who is going through so much but still manages to slap a smile on her face and carry on! Not since Gossip Girl has prep school been so schmexy ;) 

Emma is trying to move on from the tragic death of her sister, keep things going at home with an alcoholic father and navigate the world of Belle Mere Prep. Not an easy task by any means let me tell you. With her bestie Josie at her side they head out into the glittering heart of Las Vegas and begin a journey that will end up changing them both. Geneva blends all of my favorite elements (Awesome locations, secrets, angst, romance, girl power and snark) that you never want to put this book down. 

A long held family feud between Emma’s father and Belle Mere’s resident mean girl queen’s father gives us the set up for a pretty dramatic conflict (that’s putting it mildly!) But after being told to leave the massive end of year party thrown by Monroe, Emma wanders around the penthouse and meets a mysterious stranger and they share a moment. . . Lo and behold the next morning a murder mystery is front page news after a discovery of a body in the penthouse and Emma’s mystery man is the prime suspect! 

With all of the suspense of books like Pretty Little Liars and the elitist world of the uber rich like Gossip Girl this series is flawless! It leaves you flipping pages and wanting to unwrap the mystery! I love this series so much! Its one of my can’t miss reads of the summer and one that is on my desperately need a print copy because I know I will be rereading this series so much! Its that good! 

Review: Finding Home (A Club Dark Novel) By: Reagan Hollow

Lacey has experienced one tragedy and life shake up after another and is still trying to persevere through everything. After being betrayed by her fiance and best friend she decides that a change of scenery is what she needs. So she finds a listing by a woman looking for a roommate. Lacey contacts her and arranges to move in. (She didn’t do a lot of checking into the situation, which is kinda scary haha but that kind of sets up the story) 

Amber (Lacey’s roommate) is employed at this very hush hush gentleman’s club which from the outside observer looks like many others but it has a darker side. While still settling in Amber invites Lacey to tag along one night while she is working and then the next thing Lacey knows is she is waking up and feels a little disoriented. Experiencing every woman’s nightmare she has been dosed while in the club. Luckily she has a guardian angel in the form of Cory who vows to figure out who is trying to harm her at all costs. 

The story takes a darker turn when Lacey sees a face she recognizes on the security footage. That was one jaw dropping reveal and the surprises don’t stop there! The rest of the novel is one shocking twist after another. Along the way Lacey begins to rebuild herself and discovers the knowledge that she is stronger than she realizes. Her relationship with Cory blossoms and it balances out the darker moments nicely. 

Everything comes into focus in the last couple of chapters but the story does end with a pretty big cliffhanger so hopefully we get the continuation of this story soon! All in all I thought this was a pretty solid debut novel. I will definitely be one clicking the next one.

keep 1400x2100My name’s shouted on rooftops.

It’s written on bras, bathroom stalls, hell my name is everywhere. To say my name is to experience an orgasm without ever leaving your house.

My name?

Zane “Saint” Andrews.

I’m sex.

I’m a rock god.

I’m also a virgin.

What they don’t know won’t kill them right? Give the people what they want. And what they want is the idea of me; the pleasure they gain at listening to my song and knowing without a doubt I’m talking about them and only them.

It worked for a while.

Until a nerdy girl with glasses falls at my feet, literally, and suddenly I don’t want to be Saint anymore, what I want? What I really need?

Is to be kept.

By her.

Review: Juniper Smoke By: Sadia Ash

Review: Juniper Smoke By: Sadia Ash

I first saw this cover as I was scrolling Facebook and I immediately thought “that’s a wicked cool looking cover! I must get my hands on this book. . . So I waited (not so patiently! I might add haha) until release day and popped over to Amazon and one clicked. . . Little did I know I was gonna get sucked in to this amazing story! (I regret nothing!) 

From the first page the story is off and running and I loved that there was no superfluous lead in and information it was just boom! Dropped into the story and that mystery and tension of not knowing all the facts from the get go lends a fast paced quest for information quality to the story which is smart, and edgy and relatable. These characters are so life like and like people you have known for years that it makes for a engrossing read. 

Kyle and Juniper have this witty banter thing down! Haha I love how quick and rapid fire their initial exchange is when he is trying to come to her rescue off of the platform she was stuck on. I totally related to her right then because I am also extremely afraid of heights haha. So yep I probably would have been hugging the ladder petrified to climb the rest of the way down. She makes a snap judgement about him at the beginning and it does come back to bite her in just a few pages but it gives us some comedic inner monologues haha. 

About 17% in we get the first twist in this story and let me tell you its a doozy! We kinda got hints about it earlier in the book but to have the situation all laid out there it leaves you reeling (much like Juniper in that moment) you’ve become used to the typical romance novel formula and when this shift happens its like WHOA! (Just wait because there are more twists and turns to follow throughout this story) 

Kyle and Juniper’s story is not an easy one, for each one of them their past experiences shape who they are when they begin their relationship. . . And the conflicts begin to build up. There is so much healing and compromise and these characters are unlike any I have read before. The closest I could get would be Christian and Ana but more complex! Its a smarter storyline and pacing than Fifty Shades and minus all of the gratuitous schmexy times! With this book there are plenty of hot intense scenes but its not blatant about them. A lot is left to the imagination which I loved (and hotter in my opinion!) 

This is a massive story and one that you cannot put down once you finish (I blew through the first half and tried to pace myself with the second half. . . By reading on my phone haha once the battery died I had to stop! Helped me savor the last half and spend more time with these characters because I did not want to let them go) for a debut novel it is truly stunning! Sadia’s level of talent is tops of the romance game right now.

Never has a case of mistaken identity been so fun! Haha I love each of the books in this series so much, they are pure escapism with a pinch of classic literature! Adding another amazing title to the modern romance novels with a classic story inspiration Ilsa gives us another unforgettable read! 

Remi has what I’d like to call the what else can life possibly throw at me situation right now and is trying to move on. . . She thinks boom! Rebound time. . . What better place to find one of those but a masquerade? Its purely anonymous right? No harm, no foul. . . . Or is it? Haha enter Dax — a blast from the past that she thought she had put behind her. But sometimes fate decides to junk punch us in the lady business to get us to take a second chance on love. I adore a good second chance romance so this book was right up my alley! 

Added to that the writing style that Ilsa has is one of my favorites. . . Her characters are always an equal mix of complex, relatable, intense with this lightning quick banter that keeps you hooked from the opening pages. Her attention to detail also leaves us with this crystal clear picture of this club, and other moments throughout the story that you feel like you are right there. 

There is something that Dax dosen’t know though and that will rock his world. And I love moments like that in a book where something happens and it changes everything. Like the character is a snow globe and they seem compliant and all of a sudden they get shaken and then the chips fall where they may and for Remi and Dax its a huge moment its the catalyst for change. I loved the angst factor in this story as well. I totally binge read this book in one morning while mainlining coffee haha its was angst, beauty at times chaos but truly beautiful all at the same time! I can’t wait for another story from this author!

Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn’t plan on attending a masquerade party.

She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
