Every time
One Night with Rhodes (One Night Series Book 4) - Eden Finley,Book Covers by Design,Kelly Hartigan

This book is #4 in the One Night series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers and understand the series, I recommend reading series in order.

 

Blair tells his friends he is attracted to both sexes.  They really have nothing to say.  He figures that means they do not approve.  He cannot help the way he feels for his best friends older brother.  Since that is just a dream, he keeps looking for the "one."

 

Garrett does not want to be attracted to men.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to hide that he is.  He has always had a playboy reputation with women.  What he wants is a real relationship that he does not have to hide.

 

Theirs is a complicated relationship.  I love the banter, the heat, the laughter, and more.  This series is so much fun since it is about a group of friends.  There is something for everyone.  I hope to see more of these characters.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

by Carly Phillips

Blurb:

 

He isn't Mr. Nice Guy…

 

Julian Dane thought he'd hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn't that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.

 

Kendall Parker's unique issues have made it hard to live a normal life. Very few people understand her and she trusts even less … but she believed in Julian once, and he only betrayed her.

 

Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall's heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks.

Going in Deep (Billionaire Bad Boys, #4)Going in Deep by Carly Phillips
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Billionaire Bad Boys series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series books in order.

Julian is recovering from hitting the absolute bottom. He takes the steps to getting better seriously now. He is trying to make amends where he can.

Kendall has her own issues. While health is important, the heart wants what it wants. Can she go back to loving the man who makes her heart melt? Or was the past too much for the new her to handle?

These characters are obviously meant to be together. What is even better, they both have taken the time to get their own personal selves better. I think this story shows how important it is to take care of your own business before worrying about someone else. Then you are free to love as you like.

Hold on
Lost Love: A Second Chance Romance (Only Him Series Book 2) - Casey C Nicole N Cleveland C

This is the 2nd book in the Only Him series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and clear of spoilers, I always recommend reading series stories in order intended.

 

Derek has come home to work out why he cannot move on with his love life.  When he left years ago, it was an impulse and he was racked with pain from rejection.  Coming back is either brave or stupid, but he needs to know.

 

Gio has no idea what to expect.  He has not seen Derek since that time so long ago.  He too, has been struggling with moving on.  Can they get it right this time?  Or is the pain of the past just the foreshadowing of the future?

 

These two so obviously belong together.  They can't even keep their hands or mouths to themselves!  It is a fine addition to the series.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

#32 - Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Second Chance Summer - Morgan Matson

Contemporary books are not my favourite, I liked them from time to time but it is definitely not what I read the most.

Morgan Matson's books are always great, funny and emotional. This one was definitely more emotional. I don't often cry while reading, but the ending made me sobbing. I was cleaning the house while listening to the audiobook and I had to stop and sit down, it was too much, too emotional.

I also love all the flashbacks through which you can understand what happened; it was really easy to follow even on audiobook (which is definitely more difficult for me usually).

Taylor is a nice character, but even if she is the main character, I did not really connect with her. All the characters are great and I felt that even if the story is told through Taylor, the other characters were also well developed and I felt I knew them as much as I knew Taylor.

It is really a great book worth reading if you love contemporary and you are not afraid to cry.

Animal ~ Marni Mann
Animal - Marni Mann

I'd done so many unspeakable things to hundreds of innocent people.
As a result, my death was as gory and as gruesome as I'd imagined.
There was a knife. Blood. Swearing and screaming.




Beard is the unapologetic guard and executioner in an off-shore prison located in rural Venezuela. Mercy is definitely not his middle name. When he meets an alluring woman during rest in Miami a business deal is set in motion. Little does he suspect- everything isn’t as it seems. Animal is a spin-off from Prisoned featuring Beard and his story.

Beard had been my name for enough years. It had started when Inmate #326, Kyle Lang, came into my prison. She was the only captive who had ever left my jail alive.



Another storyline follows Beards’ seamlessly; Tyler is a young college student and finds a job that is too-good-to-be-true. Tyler becomes a female worker for an elite and illegal organization after being recruited by her roommate Wynter. Both storylines happen in present and as flashbacks and you won’t guess how the two come to be connected!

I must be honest while reading this I thought DAMN this is sooo good-so much better than the first! In my opinion nothing like the first book- I would 100% recommend reading this as a standalone. I connected with the characters and plot 10x more with this one than the first. The action and surprises were non-stop. I found the organization Tyler joined to be completely unique and my heart was pounding as she discovered what it was she was truly supposed to do. This book didn’t let up during the entire ride!!

I clung to the screams for a few more seconds, letting the noise fill my body, like it was liquid.

The ending.
WHOA. That was intense. I had an inclination a few people involved weren’t who they said they were but damn- I was impressed with how gruesome this got!

The epilogue.
Okay- I’ve been racking my brain- I don’t understand the newest twist. I truly thought over and over to any hints about the twist and could not figure it out! It didn’t make sense. I felt this epilogue was added for shock value instead of connecting to the actual plot. How? When?? Where?? Hmm… hopefully there will be another book to explain this. *Hmpf*

Tell me about Shank...
