Book Review : Chasing Him Kennedy fox
Chasing him - Kennedy Fox

 June 29- July 3


John Bishop isn’t your typical single dad.
Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.

Running the family’s bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren’t any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.

That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. Growing up on a ranch was anything but easy, but raising a newborn is proving to be the hardest task he’ll ever tackle. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting — except he doesn’t anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.

Mila Carmichael has many talents — making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she’s struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.

Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can’t refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn’t anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.

But that’s only the beginning.

While growing close to his family and falling madly in love with the baby girl who’s stealing their hearts, things are bound to get complicated. Everyone knows not to mix business with pleasure. That means no late movie nights, no stolen glances, and definitely no kissing behind closed doors. Too bad the universe has other plans — one that’ll threaten taking away the main thing that binds them together.


Review : John is my favorite of the brothers I just love him . John finds out he's a father the mother passed away they dated briefly so now he has an adorable daughter . Mila is visiting her grandparents and ends up with a job babysitting Johns daughter . They are attracted to each other but John won't do anything about it cause of his daughter but john and Mila get closer they get to care for each other . John finally asks Mila out and they go out on an amazing date and have sex and I just want these two to be so happy together . John gets some news Baily's parents are trying to fight custody of Johns daughter fucking rich pricks but John talks it out with them and Just agrees to vists with his daughter. Mila leaves for a job but she isn't happy and she calls Mrs. Bishop to start a plan . the auction is costume theme and John is dressed as super man and Mila shows up to to bid on him . Mila is planning on opening a school . At christmas John proposes to Mila and River is pregnant again I love this series and I can't wait to know what happens with Jackson.

Quotes:

In fact, if we didn’t have the same face and body build, I’d swear he was adopted.


I promise to give you the best life I can,”

Well I tried gettin’ rid of him, but he just keeps comin’ back…kind of like a stray dog,”

“Don’t have to worry about that. I’m not attracted to him at all,” she says, but the ghost of a smile plays on her lips. “Pretty sure I should be offended by that,

Kat: Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. Actually, do everything I would do. John Bishop is S-E-X on legs! Mila: I’m deleting this whole thread. It could be used as evidence in your murder later

This is exactly why I don’t ever wear jewelry. John starts laughing hysterically, and I can only turn just enough to see his profile. “Are you seriously laughing at me right now?” He brings a hand up and smacks my ass. “Best view I’ve had in a long time.” I groan, trying to swat him away from me with my free hand. “You’re an asshole.” “I warned ya,” he gloats. “Warned me about what?” “Wearing that would get you in trouble, and now your ass and thong are hanging out of your pants as we drive by all the ranch hands on their lunch breaks.”

Yeah, but these Bishop boys have a way of making you feel like you’ve known them forever.”

Oh,” he says, turning around to face me. “John thinks you and I hooked up the night you went out not too long ago. I didn’t exactly deny it, so he might be less grumpy if he knew the truth.” “Oh my God! Jackson Bishop!” I shout, laughing at his pathetic expression. “You’re awful! No wonder he’s been avoiding me like the black plague.” “Well, keep walking around without a top on, and he’ll be on you like chicken pox.”

“That one was an impulse decision when we were eighteen. We really are identical, down to the tats.”

Don’t worry, kid. Uncle Jackson will get you the right gear for livin’ out here.” He winks, and the tone of his voice has Maize kicking her feet and smiling like crazy. It’s ridiculous how much she responds to him, but not at all surprising, considering he looks like John. “I’m her favorite,” Jackson taunts.


I snort, laughing. “That’s because she thinks you’re Daddy. You share the same face, so don’t go getting a big head about yourself.” “Too late,” Kiera chimes in. “It’s so big, he has to get custom-made hats to fit his rather large ego.”


“Pretty sure that violates the dress code,” I tease, squeezing as I rub my thumb over her taut nipple. “I already told you I wasn’t going to follow one. And considering the first time we met you were in a towel, I figured clothing was optional.”


“I still remember that towel around your waist when I walked in, holding on by the grace of God because it was nearly painted on your body. I thought for sure it was going to fall at any moment. Especially when you started yelling at me and wailing your arms around like I was a trespassing sorority girl



“Maize wanted to ask you a question.” I smirk, jerking my head down to her T-shirt. Mila squats down to her level and straightens her shirt so she can read it. “Will you marry my daddy?” she reads


“I’m still shocked Jackson’s the only one without a kid,” Dad blurts out. “Makes me wonder if all those stories he tells about women are actually true.”

Review: The Sun is Also a Star
The Sun Is Also a Star - Nicola Yoon

Nicola Yoon's The Sun is Also a Star, is a breathtaking adventure. It's filled with fact vs. fate. 

 

The story follows two teenagers, Natasha Kingsley, a 17-year-old Jamaican immigrant who is on the brink of deportation and Daniel Bae, a 17-year-old Korean American who is on the brink of making his own choice or following what his parents want. They cross paths, Daniel is convinced its destiny, Natasha doesn't believe in destiny, mostly because she doesn't want to.  

 

Nevertheless, Natasha and Daniel go on an emotional journey together, and it changes them for the better. 

 

This novel is absolutely incredible. Yoon doesn't fail to bring every emotion out of you through her words. 

 

It is extremely well-written, and it is written in the perspective of Natasha and Daniel as well as supporting characters (and minor characters) that they cross paths with. It's captivating, beautiful, funny, riveting. It is a must-read. 

 

I give it 5 stars. 

 

 

P.S. The Sun is Also a Star is being adapted into a movie featuring Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton scheduled for release in 2019.

The Lawrence Browne Affair (The Turner Series #2) (Audiobook)
The Lawrence Browne Affair - Cat Sebastian

Story: 4

Narration: 5

Overall: 4.5

 

This was even better than the first. I loved Lawrence, and Georgie is surprisingly more likable than I found him in the first book. Not that I found him unlikable. He was just sort of there.

 

So what happens when a career conman has to hide away from his old gang and is sent off to a remote country estate that's depilated from years of neglect and is home of an eccentric, mad earl? Well, you get Belle poking around the Beast's castle, of course. ;) I seriously wouldn't have been surprised if the candlesticks started talking to Georgie in that scene. :D

 

This is the farthest thing from Beauty & the Beast though. Radner suffers what we today would call social anxiety, something I'm very familiar with. Georgie had an unprecedented whim to let a mark off the hook and actually do something nice for a change, and now much find a way to make amends with the grifter boss or face the consequences. He initially considers Radner an easy mark, but of course that all changes.

 

There's even a bit of a mystery involved with Radner's staff, and why exactly rumors of Radner's implausible mad acts are floating over the countryside. Radner himself is recluse and a scientist, obsessed with trying to get his telegraph machine to work and has little care for anything or anyone else. 

 

I really enjoyed seeing how these two brought out the best in each other and accepted each other for what they were. There were no big misunderstandings or drama llamas here. The story unfolded authentically and while the MCs may learn to let go some of their own self-imposed preconceptions about themselves, they're still the same at their core, and this is what drives the story more than anything else. 

 

Gary Furlong agains does a marvelous job with the story. He brings the characters and scenes to life with his voice, and it's just such a pleasant voice to listen to. I even slowed down the playback speed a little so I could listen to him longer. :D
