Fragments of Ash - Katy Regnery

 

 

Ashley's tale is one of empowerment. Her heart may have been broken, but her spirit would not be contained. She refuses to be a victim of circumstance. That's what makes her an inspiration. Regnery turns one woman's heartache into a never-ending adventure of love loss, hope found and courage revealed. Fragments of Ash combines multiple genres to create a fantastical, captivating, irresistible, unforgettable, must have addition to any bookshelf.

UNbelievable!
Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History - Katy Tur

Katy Tur was a London-based NBC foreign correspondent when her network assigned her to cover the Trump primary campaign.  Nobody expected the campaign to be long-lasting, let alone lead to Donald Trump becoming the Republican nominee--or winning the general election.  

 

Nor could anything have prepared her for the surreal experience of reporting on the many rallies she attended, the interviews, the ramblings on Twitter, and various other campaign events.  And then there were the times when Trump decided to single her out, complaining about the quality of her reporting, and encouraging his followers to rail against her.  The situation became so dire that Tur actually needed Secret Service agents to ensure her safety by walking her to her car.

 

The audiobook really flew by for me, and I enjoyed Tur's voice both in terms of her writing and her narration.  She relates her experiences and reactions to them with intelligence and humor.  She often had me laughing or scoffing, in reaction to the anecdotes shared in the narrative.  I also appreciated her emphasis on the importance of journalism, not only for keeping the public informed of current events, but also for creating an accurate historical record.

Catching Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #4) by Katy Regnery
Catching Irish - Katy Regnery

 

Catching Irish reminded me of my favorite song. I got lost in the moment. Tate and Fin are like a catchy melody stuck on repeat in my head. The words are embedded and your heart is lost before you realize what's happening. When a heart finds it's match it never let's go. No matter what the odds, Regnery reminds us that true love is worth fighting for. Love is a gift and this series is a treasure inspired by that gift. Loved it.

Playboy - Katy Evans

Playboy by Katy Evans is the fifth book to the much beloved Manwhore series. Technically this is a standalone but I suggest starting from the beginning to get the full effect and understand the many characters that show up throughout the story. I absolutely appreciate the chance to review this early because the teasers and cover alone had me super excited to read this book.

Weeks after a bad breakup from who she thought was The One, Wynn Watson is back in the dating scene hoping to gain some happiness back in her life. What was supposed to be a fun date turns into watching an underground poker game and somehow getting ensnared in the web of the mysterious Playboy. Gambler turned pro poker player, Cullen Carmichael lives up to his nickname every day. Finally having a certain redhead in his clutches a new game begins for Cullen to show he's the real deal and now playing for the win.

I loved that the main characters complimented each other so well and brought out a side no one else saw. Cullen was so intense and guarded, keeping anyone around him at arms length, but with Wynn by his side he became more playful and open. Wynn however I wasn't always fond of. I felt like she settled with a relationship and into a role because all her other friends getting married and put up a wall that divided her from real fun because it wasn't part of her life plan. With Cullen and his bets Wynn slowly loosened up and started living for the moments instead of trying to fit into a certain mold based off of others.

All in all Playboy was a fun, enjoyable read and the setting being in Vegas was super cool. Especially the scenes with the poker games, they felt so real it was as if I was another player experiencing the same rush as Cullen. I know for sure I want to read the other books in this series because I feel with great certainty I will love them just as much. Playboy is swoony and sinful in the best ways and definitely a book to keep a lookout for.

Little Big Love - Katy Regan

This was an adorable story of ten year old Zac who is overweight and bullied and just wants to know why his dad left him.

Juliet, his single mother, tries to do her best for her very intelligent and imaginative son. However, the family has secrets that involve Zac's dad and only one person can get to the bottom of that secret.

Mick is the grandfather who sees a whole new world through his grandson's eyes and also holds a terrible secret.

Absolutely delightful read that I thoroughly enjoyed!!

Thanks to Berkley Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
