The Boyfriend Bracket
The Boyfriend Bracket - Kate Evangelista

Stella has had a crush on Will, her big brother's best friend for years. However, because of the two of them, she's been unable to date anyone since they chase off any guys who might try. The two of them have just graduated, leaving Stella finally free to date. With the help of her best friend, Franklin, the two concoct a plan to get a Stella a boyfriend - the Boyfriend Bracket. But when Will ends up being around a lot more often than expected, Stella finds herself focusing on him more than any of the guys in the bracket.

 

I picked this book up for the "boyfriend bracket" concept, so it was disappointing to see just how early on it was dropped. The little the book did have of it was rushed through or told in summary after the fact. The majority of the guys were never even on page. I knew what direction the book was ultimately going to take based on the synopsis, but I thought the eponymous bracket would at least play a bigger role in the book.

 

The romance didn't particularly do it for me. Will had spent years chasing other guys away from Stella because he didn't want anyone else to have her, even though he had no intention of asking her out at that point. He goes along with overprotective and possessive behavior on Stella's brother's part to keep other guys away from her. I'm just not a fan of that type of behavior.

 

I was disappointed the book quickly discarded a unique premise for a romance with the big brother's best friend who participated in overprotective and possessive behaviors. The tossing of the unique premise wouldn't have necessarily ruined the book for me since I love a good romantic comedy regardless of how cliched it is. But throw in an overprotective/possessive love interest and there has to be some incredibly strong writing with some killer chemistry to sell the story to me. And this just didn't deliver.

Reese Fitzgerald knows how to go for the gold…except when it comes to dating. After her gymnastic career ends with a near-death accident, she decides attending college is the best way to submerge herself into a regular life. Ever the Olympic athlete, Reese plans to go all in with the college experience: dating, sororities, football games, and one night of beer pong gone wrong. What she does not expect is to be sucked into a media frenzy by a prince with dreamy eyes and a smile that makes her forget her name.

 

 

Mason Livingston has two years before he becomes king, and he plans to spend every bit of it living it up in America. Girls, parties, and drinking are par for the course. When a story leaks about an incident involving a friend back home, he must find a way to restore his country’s faith in his ability to assume his father’s throne. His advisors convince him the best way to do so is by showing he has found his queen. Someone with grace, elegance, and pedigree. And he sets his sights on Reese.

 

Will the two together be Olympic gold, or will Mason turn out to be just another frog?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her Royal Boyfriend (Awkward Duckling, #3)Her Royal Boyfriend by K.R. Grace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #3, in the Awkward Duckling series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Reese meets Mason on the flight over to the school they will both be attending. He shocks her and technically uses her, so she is skeptical to believe anything he tells her after that. Unfortunately, you cannot help you are attracted to, and they often run into one another.

Mason is looking for a real relationship. He is in a hurry to have one, since his parents and country are pushing him to clean up his image. He realizes there is more to Reese than at first glance, and he wants to get to know her better.

This was such a surprise! I loved the banter and was laughing out loud as I read. These characters are such a joy. I really liked the pace, and there was chemistry right from the start. The friendships in this series are great also. This was just a great read.

As a child, K.R. Grace had an overactive imagination. When it was obvious she wasn’t going to change anytime soon, her mom shoved a pen and paper in her hand and said, “Write it down.” So, at the age of eight, her first story was born, and the writing hasn’t stopped since. When she’s not running with wolves, sleeping with bears, or flying with falcons, she can be found checking out local bands or watching movies about things that go “boo” in the night. She lives in East Tennessee with a dog that is afraid of his own shadow and a cat that was a mob leader in a former life.

Reading progress update: I've read 91%.
Broken Pieces - Riley Hart

As though someone flipped a switch, the rigidness in his body evaporated. He sagged against Mateo with his face in Teo’s neck. “I sold myself to the highest bidder,” he whispered. “I made money for school and to take care of my mom by letting someone fuck me. I was his paid whore for years. A whore to his friends, and then I would take that money and buy her food. I’d spend it on my stupid fucking education, because I somehow made myself believe that if I could take care of us, everything else would go away.”

When Mateo wrapped his arms around Tristan, he realized Tristan wasn’t just slack against him anymore... they were holding each other up. His eyes stung. His gut ached. Bile rose in his throat. And fuck if his heart wasn’t somehow matching Tristan’s beat. 

 

My favorite scene. 

 

❤️❤️❤️

a great easy read
Wanted - Bad Boyfriend - TA Moore
I was gifted my copy of this book, that I write a review was not required. Everyone thinks Nate should have a boyfriend, NEEDS one to be happy. But is ok by himself, mostly. So he hatches a plan with the island's resident bad boy. Pretend to be together for a bit, the Flynn can do his thing, dump Nate and everyone will leave him alone. Only, there are a couple of problems with said plan: both are surprised by the chemistry between them, and actually, Flynn turns out to be quite a good boyfriend. And it becomes a case on not pretending. I LIKED this book. I did not love it though, and *insert wailing sound* I don't know why! It's well told, from both Flynn and Nate's point of view, in the past tense. It has some sexy bits, some funny bits, some difficult reading bits and some emotional bits. We don't get all of Flynn and Nate's history in one go, it comes along bits at time. In fact, much of Flynn's history is still unexplained. I still don't know which of those rumours were true, and just why he did not return for his father's funeral. It does throw a CORKER twist at you though! I did NOT see that one coming, not at all!! There I was, merrily reading away *don't tell anyone* on a quiet Sunday afternoon at work, and BOOM!!! Moore throws that at me and I'm like SAY WHAT NOW!?!?!?!?!? Out loud! I rarely am vocal when reading (more so when listening) and my colleague is like "Are you okay?" And I'm like "but look what she did!" Seriously well played with that Ms Moore, very VERY well played! Like I said, it's well told, well written and well delivered. I saw no spelling or editing errors to spoil my reading experience and I read it in that one afternoon. I'm just sorry I didn't love it though. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
