Review: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

17788401

Goodreads Summary:

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.


My Review

Believe it or not but this is actually the first ever Colleen Hoover book that I’ve read!! That is practically blasphemous I know! And boy oh boy do I see what I was missing out on now!! Holy crap this book was good!! Hoover has a way with romance novels, or so I had been told, and that is definitely no exaggeration. I’m actually going to her book signing event in two weeks in Phoenix and I am so so excited for it!

Ugly Love was entirely unique in that its two perspectives took place in two different timelines. One focused on the life of Tate, an RN who has just temporarily moved in with her brother while she gets her Masters and attempts to find an apartment of her own. The other perspective follows Miles (the boy in the apartment across the hall), only his perspective is one from 6 years in the past! Wild right?! Miles also happens to be one of Tate’s brother’s coworkers. He has always been aloof from love for reasons that very few are privy to. However, right from the start there is an attraction between Miles and Tate, and before they know it, they’re falling in to an intense yet tumultuous friends with benefits situation. Miles has two rules though, don’t ask about his past, and don’t expect a future.

The title of this book could not possibly be any more accurate! It was so very clear that the feelings between Miles and Tate were so much more than physical. Unfortunately for Tate, every time she tried to break through Miles walls, she was forcibly cast out. It was heartbreaking, and as time went on, I kept finding myself thinking, girl you deserve better, drop his ass, but then he would play mind games with her and she would go right back. It made sense really. And as events played out, and the truth was revealed, my heart utterly broke for Miles. He had every right to feel the way he did. He had every right to create a love that was so ugly with Tate.

This book brought forth all the feels at all the right times, and the ending absolutely brought me to tears. I could not have been more pleased. I had a wonderful first experience with a Colleen Hoover novel, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more!! I most definitely recommend you read this book!

Review: Lucky in Love by Kasie West

30285562

Goodreads Summary:

Can’t buy me love…

Maddie’s not impulsive. She’s all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment—

She wins!

In a flash, Maddie’s life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she’s talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun…until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now Maddie isn’t sure who she can trust.

Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn’t seem aware of Maddie’s big news. And, for some reason, she doesn’t want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?


My Review

I didn’t have super high expectations for Lucky in Love, but I had hoped that I would at least enjoy it a little more. Unfortunately, it was about as mediocre as a high school romance can possibly get. I was definitely hesitant when I read the description. An 18 year old girl wins the lottery and her whole life changes, but during all of the money madness, she still finds herself falling in love with the cute boy she works with. Cheesy right? Well yup, it sure was.

There was nothing wholly exciting about this book. Everything that happened was just so  completely predictable. I really wanted events to play out differently. I thought, maybe they will make this story ablout more than a teenager winning a bunch of money, getting in over her head, and ruining the relationships around her. But nope, that just about happens. SPOILER ALERT. Not that you weren’t thinking it already right?

I had heard fairly good things about Kasie West’s P.S. I Like You, so I thought I would give this one a try after receiving it as a gift. Unfortunately, this makes me super reluctant to give that book a try now. Any thoughts on this author and her other work? I wish I could recommend Lucky in Love to readers, but all I can really give it, is that it was a quick read. It’s a good in-between book, but otherwise it’s not much to be excited about.

Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

16143347

Goodreads Summary:

A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.

We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.

Read it.

And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

 


My Review

We Were Liars was an intriguing story from the get-go. There were just so many questions and things to learn about each character. Each one seemed like they were keeping secrets. I feel like that kind of comes with the territory when dealing with rich families. Nevertheless, I 100% did not see it coming when I learned the truth.

This story follows the life of Cadence Sinclair, the first grandchild of the Sinclair family, blessed beyond belief with the privilege of getting to spend summers on her grandfather’s private island. Cadence only sees her cousins and her surrogate family member: Gat during these summers. Although, her time on the island isn’t without it’s hiccups. And as with every family, comes dysfunction. Events reach a peak when Cadence is found in the night at the shore after suffering from an accident. However, she has no memory of what happened to her.

We Were Liars was told in such an interesting way, the style was captivating and alluring, almost haunting at times. It was like the writing wove a web of mysteries in the reader’s head. It most definitely succeeded in keeping my attention throughout. I had to know what happened to Cadence, and I had to know why? I have no other way of expressing my feelings about the truth other then that I was completely SHOOK. Damn, was I shook!

If you are looking for a dramatic contemporary work of fiction that packs a resounding punch, then you have got to read We Were Liars.

Review: Every Day by David Leviathan

13262783

Goodreads Summary:

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.


My Review 

Wow. Just absolutely wow. Every Day is unlike anything you will ever read!! And although the ending is not entirely what I had hoped for, the story was glorious nonetheless! The style in which this book was written was so wholly captivating. It had me immediately hooked! Levithan writes with this poetic melodious rhythm that makes you fly through the pages.

Every Day follows the ever changing life of A, a being who has the unfortunate predicament of waking up in a new body every morning. It has been like this all of his or her life. A doesn’t have a set gender, he takes on the role of whomever “he” is inhabiting, whether it be a girl, boy, transgender, or otherwise. A is used to this life, has adapted to it, and knows how to get by. That is, until the day A meets Rhiannon. Rhiannon makes A want to stay in one body every day for the rest of the days.

This book makes you realize that love doesn’t have to have a gender to be real. It makes you appreciate how different each person’s life is. A literally gets to walk in the shoes of hundreds upon hundreds of people, developing a new understanding of each type of life that could be lived at the age of 16. It was kind of insane to see each life’s unique aspects. I admire Levithan’s ability to weave a story around an entity who didn’t have a real identity.

The ending was heart wrenching on every level. I was definitely saddened by the way events played out, but it didn’t ruin the overall story. What happened was meant to happen and it was just the reality of things. Every Day was an incredibly different and revealing story that touched on all the complexities of daily living and what it’s like to love someone in any and all situations. I would most definitely recommend you pick up this book!!

Review: Me Before You by JoJo Meyers

15507958

Goodreads Summary:

Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair-bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A love story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?


My Review

In a way I knew exactly what to expect from this book after seeing the trailer for the movie. I knew I would probably cry, and I knew that it would be as a result of feeling! I decided to listen to the audiobook to try to soften the emotional blow. Though I wasn’t as thoroughly impressed by the story as I thought I would be, I most certainly enjoyed it overall.

The story centers around the perspective of Louisa Clark, although it does cycle through a few other perspective at times. Louisa’s life is about as ordinary and uneventful as it can get. She never does anything exciting, and has been with the same man whom she clearly doesn’t love for seven years. When she gets fired from her job, she goes on the hunt for new work and finds herself with the new role as a caregiver for the quadriplegic Will Traynor. Their relationship starts out rocky to say the least, but as she learns more about his situation, she becomes determined to show him his life is worth living.

Louisa and Will’s interactions were so utterly frustrating and wonderful at the same time. They were two people that were brought together in the most unlikely of circumstances, and they couldn’t be more unalike. I was so completely heartbroken to see things pan out the way they did between them, but I was absolutely resigned to the fact that it had to end in such a way. The ending went against the norm for sure, and though it hurt my romantic heart, it was fitting for the story and truly lovely.

If you’re looking for a heartfelt romance, filled with beautiful characters and a story that makes you feel in new ways. Then I would most definitely recommend you read Me Before You.

CAN’T GET ENOUGH Synopsis:

New York Times best selling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a rough, tough bad boy brought to his knees by… a kindergarten teacher?

The king of one-night stands…
To inherit–and destroy–his father’s business at long last, Brock Hudson needs a temporary wife.  The ruthless ex-military heartthrob has always avoided romantic entanglements.  Women are sweet, but vengeance will be sweeter.  Or so he thinks. Only one woman will do, but the vulnerable beauty is more than he bargained for—sexier, wittier, and utterly irresistible.

The queen of the deep freeze…
After an abusive first marriage, Lyndie Scott has sworn off relationships.  But still she longs for a child of her own.  Turns out, the brawler who used to frighten her with only a glance is the answer to her problems.  She agrees to his proposal, with a caveat: spend every night in bed with her, then walk away for good when it’s time to divorce. Even if she’s pregnant.

A marriage of breathtaking inconvenience…
As the days pass too quickly and the nights heat up, Brock battles a sense of possession and obsession. Will the former commitment-phobe convince his wife they’re better off together, or will she pack her bags and go?

EXCERPT:

“But… marriage? ”Lyndie asked. “I promised myself I’d never do the whole legal-ties thing again.” Straight white teeth nibbled on her bottom lip. “How long would our marriage last?”

“I don’t know exactly.” Anticipation blended with excitement, driving Brock mad in the best possible way. So close to victory! “I’ll need to find the employees of the Hud and Son Group new jobs before I dismantle the company. There will be no collateral damage on my watch.” The employees were innocent, and he wouldn’t leave them in the lurch. “If I had to guess, I’d say a month. Maybe two, but not likely.”

Her beautiful lips shaped the words, One month.

His father’s will had two stipulations: Brock had to be married in order to run the business and, if he planned to continue running it, he had to remain married.

Daddy Dearest had used the perfect bait. Miranda’s downfall. He’d known Brock would seethe as he imagined his mother rich, happy, and carefree.

What Brock hadn’t yet comprehended? Why his father cared about his relationship status at all. What made his father think a commitment would “bring him out of the darkness and into the light?”

Thankfully—and shockingly—there’d been no requirements for Brock’s wife. No “proper” pedigree. No reputation above reproach. No set family worth. The very requirements for the girls he’d dated in high school.

Little wonder he’d always gravitated toward wild, tattooed biker babes.

Lyndie was an anomaly, everything he’d never wanted but now had to have.

She gulped. “Would we live together?”

“Yes. For the sake of appearances, but also because your safety and peace of mind matter to me.” He would be on his best behavior. Would sidestep any conversations about the terrible things he’d done in the past. She would never know how much blood stained his hands. “I will continue to protect you from Rick Lambert. From anyone who threatens you.”

Her shoulders rolled in. “I’m a magnet for crazies, aren’t I?”

“Scottie, you’re a magnet, period.”

She drew in a deep breath, slowly released it. “I’m shocked to admit this, but I like the idea of having you here… which makes me not want to have you here. I can’t learn to rely on you. I must rely on myself.”

Craved her independence? “What if I promise not to ever cook your meals or clean the house or do anything gentlemanly?”

The corners of her mouth twitched. “That would help, yes.”

Closer still!

“We’d have to sleep in separate bedrooms though. I’m not going to get used to your warmth.” Twin pink circles stained her cheeks. A flush of embarrassment… or pleasure? “But, uh, just to be clear,” she said, and gulped, “you will want to have sex with me, yes?”

His excitement deflated. Did she not want to have sex with him? “Yes. I will. I do. I hope you’ll want to have sex with me.” Many times. Every night. “If you allow me into your bed, I will make your pleasure a top priority. But I will expect nothing, and I will never pressure you for something you aren’t willing to give. The money will be yours whether we sleep together or not.”

Her breath hitched. Her pupils grew, black spilling over amber. Her nails dug into her knees, as if… no way. As if she had to stop herself from reaching for him.

He went still. She wanted him. Lyndie Scott wanted him.

Do not pound your chest like a gorilla.

“I don’t want your money, Brock.”

Heart thudding against his ribs, he opened his mouth to tell her that he’d give her anything. If she wanted him to beg, he would beg. He had no pride. Not with her.

Shoulders squared, she added, “I want your sperm.”

Uh, what the what now? His brain short-circuited.

Groaning, she hunched over to anchor her elbows on her knees and cover her face with her upraised hands.

“I think I misheard you,” he rasped, but deep down realization had begun to click. Lyndie Scott had caught the baby fever. She might agree to marry him, but she expected a child in return.

CAN’T HARDLY BREATHE Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with an irresistible Original Heartbreakers story about a woman who’s never felt desired and the man who wants her more than air to breathe…

My Review:

Can’t Hardly Breathe was a lovely endearing story of two vastly different people falling for one another. Though it certainly had its cheesy moments, the overall story was utterly sweet and enjoyable.

Can’t Hardly Breathe follows the two perspectives of Dorothea and Daniel, two people who knew each other in high school briefly but rarely crossed paths, only enough for Dorothea to fantasize about him. Now years later, Daniel happens to be a regular guest at her family inn. Dorothea of course is still infatuated with him, but is hesitant to mix with the big time playboy. Daniel seems to be unexpectedly taken with her however, and they soon find themselves playing a game of cat and mouse as they each try to deny their growing feelings for one another.

This book was steamy to say the least, it was full of great banter and beautiful romantic moments. There was definitely a tug of war going on between the main characters that got super frustrating at times. I could see each perspective of the argument, but I also disagreed with multiple points as well. I think that if anything, this book proved that love is worth fighting for no matter the cost. Sappy I know.

All of the characters in this book were varied and I appreciated seeing the aspects of the impact that being in the military can have. I liked seeing how Daniel’s personality meshed with Dorothea’s, they both were exactly what the other needed. They instilled confidence and trust in one another, making the other a better person overall. The story showed the ups and downs of any relationship and proved that real outshines any  disagreement.

If you’re looking for a good romance to get your heart pounding, then I would definitely recommend Can’t Hardly Breathe!

Excerpt:

Hands trembling, she hooked the vacuum to the cart and rolled the cargo to the supply room…where her
younger sister Holly was smoking a cigarette.
Coughing, Dorothea claimed the cigarette and stubbed the tip into an ashtray.
“Hey!” Eighteen-year- old Holly glared at her. “I wasn’t done.”
“You mean you weren’t done giving our guests lung cancer and stinking up the inn?”
“Exactly.” Ever the smart aleck, Holly tossed a piece of gum in her mouth and popped a bubble in
Dorothea’s face. “Besides, we don’t really have guests, now, do we? Since you took over, only four people
have stayed here. Mayor Trueman and his side slice, and Daniel Porter and whatever bimbo he happens to be
banging.”
Not true! A few months ago, Dorothea had hired Harlow Glass, and everyone in town had rented a room to
witness the former bully’s downfall.
Good times.
Dorothea hadn’t wanted to like Harlow, but dang it, something bad had happened to the girl in the years since
high school, and she’d changed. More than that, Harlow had done everything in her power to make amends,
and eventually Dorothea had warmed up to her.
Now the beautiful brunette was married to reformed playboy Beck Ockley. The happy couple were
expecting their first child in a few months.
A razor-sharp pang cut through Dorothea. Won’t think about my own—
Nope. Slam the breaks.
To ward off the oncoming pity party, she drew in a deep breath…slowly released it… Good, that was good.
She focused on her sister. Holly had pinned back the sides of her jet-black hair, the remaining locks
tumbling all the way to the metal links anchored around her biceps. She’d paired a crimson corset top—her
first pop of color in months—with a ruffled black skirt, ripped fishnet stockings and combat boots caked with
mud Dorothea would have to clean from the floors.
In a town as small as Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, Holly was a legend. Unique.
“My inn, my rules,” Dorothea said. “No smoking. Ever.” Besides, she suspected the teenager only ever lit
up to aggravate her. Not once had Dorothea witnessed an actual puff.
“You’re worse than a Mogwai that’s been fed after midnight.”
A Gremlins reference? Seriously?
“No wonder Jazz left you,” her sister added.
Air hissed between her teeth. Holly might hate her guts, but the teenager loved to insult her, and this barb
hit harder than most.
Rather than waiting for love, as Dorothea had dreamed, she’d settled for companionship, marrying the first guy
to pay attention to her. Worse, she’d believed his words rather than his actions. I adore you and only want
what’s best for you…for us.
