August has been an awesome month for me book wise I read 3 new favorites, including I'll Meet You There (phenomenal btw), Gemina and Daughter of the Pirate King.  I also listened (re-read but on audio) to a fav from a while ago with Angelfall.  I only read one e-ARC from Netgalley, and that's disappointing...I just haven't wanted to read those, lately.

My Thoughts

 

 

I really liked Gray and Skylar, loved that they had a age difference with the girl older than the guy.  After all, this is something I can get behind, since I'm six years older than my husband.  I will recommend this series as a whole, just on quick wit alone, that is Noelle August, aka writing team Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger.  They have a writing style that is fresh and engaging.  That's not bogged down with an over abundance of overly descriptive sex scenes.  I just wish they had more for me to read.

 

Will I read more from this AuthorYes, I would.  I'm wondering if I would like Veronica Rossi's YA stuff now???

July Recap
Rebound: A Boomerang Novel - Noelle August
The Breakup Support Group - Cheyanne Young

I finished a much loved series this month...The Naturals.  with the final book in the 4 book series, Bad Blood...loved it, btw.  I also really enjoyed the conclusion to Vicarious Duo, with Ferocious, which I received an ARC of.

 

I also finished up a few reading challenges, 3 of them this month, actually.  A few of the books I've read this month were read just for this purpose.  Like the Breakup Support Group, Stalking Jack The Ripper and The First Time She Drowned.  I'm actively trying to start less of these so I can finish some of the super long ones.

Book Theme Song

(this link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

♫Be My Forever by Christina Perri feat. Ed Sheeran  --the lyric video goes with the book cover and with the setting...so yeah, I was under inspired on this book for a theme song.♫

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

3.8/5 STARS

B

 

 

My Thoughts

 

I loved the first book in this series, Boomerang…I think I loved it so much because I adored Mia.  I didn't really care for Allison, though…So, I was reluctant to read this because of how I felt about her, I just didn't think I could relate to her as a heroine.   It turns out that Adam's character mostly made up for what Allison was lacking.  So...I did like them, I just didn't love them.  I really didn't understand Allison's relationship with her dad either. 

While the writing is still stellar in this second installment, the characters were only so-so in capturing my attention, there story was lacking something that Mia and Ethan had in Boomerang.  I'm hoping to recapture with Bounce, the next book in the series.

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

This book had all the feels that I've been missing out on lately with my reading.  I was feeling like maybe I should give up on the romance genre, especially New Adult, because of the lack of feels.  Thank you, Noelle August for this book.

 

 Obviously, I enjoyed this book…with it's edgy plotline of a dating website, called boomerang (clever name, btw) thrown together with exciting, upbeat characters, and…I was hooked.  I absolutely love the way everything played out, it was original and so freaking sweet.

 

⇝Sex Factor⇜  The perfect amount of sex, just enough, it was...perfect…I already said that didn't I?
