Blog Tour w/Review - Until We're More

 

 

Chelsea is smart, funny, gorgeous, and the best friend I’ve ever had. Ever since she left, I’ve been a wreck. I’ve been focused on keeping my family’s MMA gym afloat while I train and coach fighters, anything to not miss her more. But now she’s finally back, along with her grumpy, possessive cat, and things are weird between us.

 

By weird, I mean I can’t stop thinking about her in that way. She’s in the room next door, and it takes all my control not to storm in there, sweep her up, and bring her back to my bed. Even stranger, I’m pretty sure she’d be into it.

 

And this time, I’m not going to stop fighting until we’re more.

 

 

 

Each book in the Fighting for Her series is STANDALONE:
* Until You’re Mine
* Until We’re More

Until We're More (Fighting for Her, #2)Until We're More by Cindi Madsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #2 in the Fighting For Her series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

Liam is Chelsea's best friend. They met when she moved in next door at least a decade ago. He is attracted to her and is trying desperately to be her friend only. She needs him and he needs her.

Chelsea comes home to San Diego to be part of a project that could make or break her career. At the same time, she is anxious to see those she has missed. Including the love of her life and best friend, Liam.

This story started off with a steady pace and kept the suspense and excitement pumping. This author is a go to purchase for me, and if you had read books by Ms Madsen before, you know why. Lots of humor, heat and heartache, but in the best of ways. I love how I get an HEA that never disappoints. Good addition to the series.

About Cindi Madsen:

 

CINDI MADSEN is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting, revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a pretty new pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music and dancing and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband, three children, an overly-dramatic tomcat, & an adorable one-eyed kitty named Agent Fury.

August 2018 Round-Up

 

Wow August went by so fast, I can't believe we are going into September. August was a super busy month here with back to school stuff and school sports starting, it was insanely busy and I was surprised that  still got plenty of books in, or at least more than I thought I would lol. I got some ARCs  done and I also got the first three books in the Shatter Me series read. I liked them more than I thought I would. I still have to get the reviews done for them and will post them soon. Plus I finally finished The Mine Order, took me forever and not sure why but I really liked that book. 

Currently I'm working on one ARC and a book I meant to read for a while. It's just taking a bit longer since I was so busy and I need to find time to read but I'm hoping it will get better this week, when we are back to a normal routine.

 

For my ARC I'm reading : 

 

Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers

 

37569347

 

Death wasn’t the end, it was only the beginning…

Sybella has always been the darkest of Death’s daughters, trained at the convent of Saint Mortain to serve as his justice. But she has a new mission now. In a desperate bid to keep her two youngest sisters safe from the family that nearly destroyed them all, she agrees to accompany the duchess to France, where they quickly find themselves surrounded by enemies. Their one ray of hope is Sybella’s fellow novitiates, disguised and hidden deep in the French court years ago by the convent—provided Sybella can find them.

Genevieve has been undercover for so many years, she struggles to remember who she is or what she’s supposed to be fighting for. Her only solace is a hidden prisoner who appears all but forgotten by his guards. When tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to take matters into her own hands—even if it means ignoring the long awaited orders from the convent.

As Sybella and Gen’s paths draw ever closer, the fate of everything they hold sacred rests on a knife’s edge. Will they find each other in time, or will their worlds collide, destroying everything they care about?

 

And my other book I'm reading right now is When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

 

28458598

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

 

There are some great books releasing next ,month and the month after and I'm not even sure when or how I will get to them all. But here are some books I'm looking forward to in September .

 

Wildcard by Marie Lu

 

29386918

 

Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco

 

30375937

 

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

 

38255342

 

I don't have any real goals for September, just finish my ARC and maybe if more come in get them done as well. 

Oh on a happy note. I did officially finish my 2018 Goodreads  Reading challenge, I had it only set to 50 books but YAY, If you wanna check it out here you can, I don't think I will up it at this time :) 

 

The Giveaway ended and the winner will hear from us within two weeks normally. We also will have a new Halloween Giveaway that will go up sometime mid September ;)  

 

Now to my August reads. as usual you can find the buy links in the reviews that will be linked.

Thank you for all your support and Happy Reading :) 

 


 A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

 

 

Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

Wild Hunger by Chloe Neill

 

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she’s a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he’s prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of an ambassador brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.

The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?

Until We're More (Fighting For Her #2) by Cindi Madsen
Until We're More - Cindi Madsen

 

Until We're More has a great formula for figuring out the mechanics of love. When dealing with heartbreak stay active, keep alert and if given the chance try to make things right. With an arrogantly aggressive cat, a determined ex and a suitcase full of untended baggage Cindi Madsen sets about making you smile while tempting your heart. Liam and Chelsea are hard to resist, but I'm sorry to say in my opinion were upstaged by a cat. It's hard not to love that.

A Stay Up All Night Read
Until We're More - Cindi Madsen

I haven't had such a good time reading a romance in a long time. Snark, spark, history, lust, and true friendship between two fantastic likable characters makes this story rock. I was cheering on one page, sniffling the next, snorting and spitting my coffee all over on the third. What a ride.

Sexy MMA fighter Liam, is training to get the belt title that will make his business a solid thing when his BFF Chelsea comes back  in town for work. Chelsea is a distraction and he needs this belt. Chelsea needs to stay focused too, she's desperate to make it in her field of work and this job might be the way to a promotion. Both need to be a success, both have hormones/feelings/history that mess with their focus. The Chelsea moves in with Liam and brings George. Who is George ? George is the one throwing up on the carpet. Read the book, he's fantastic. Living together makes for some interesting moments. That's all you'll get out of me, read it if you want more.

Thank you NetGalley and publishers   for this review copy and an unbiased opinion
