At the Corner of Rock Bottom & Nowhere
At the Corner of Rock Bottom & Nowhere - L.A. Witt

What happens when a blackjack dealer/stripper/occasional prostitute meets a homeless man/former ad exec on the streets of Vegas and offers him a hand up? You get role-reversed Pretty Woman!  

 

I didn't really buy the way these two met, at first. Adrian's constantly walking right on by the homeless people living on the streets of Vegas without a backward glance - but backward glances at Max because of his designer suit and shoes. I guess if you want any hope of being rescued off the streets, you better be wearing Gucci. (Does Gucci design men's clothes? I have no idea.) Weird setup aside, it was a nice read and the characters are likable, and the writing when talking about Max's fall from grace was particularly strong. Other than that, there was nothing special here. It's a standard romance with standard sex scenes (which I skipped). I also never really understood why Adrian sometimes slept with his customers for money since he didn't need the money. It felt like that was there just to give them something edgy and progressive to deal with.

Completely Yours...A flirty, fun read.
Completely Yours (Opposites Attract) - Erin Nicholas

Completely Yours (Opposites Attract book 1) by Erin Nicholas 

 

Erin Nicholas really went above and beyond for this book. I loved every aspect of this story. 

 

In Completely Yours I really felt like the characters and their struggles were real. I found myself getting caught up in the story. I could not put this book down. It was an amazing beginning to a new series. 

 

 

Completely Yours truly has all the elements that make a great book. I found myself laughing and crying. I also found myself getting caught up in the bit of action. This book has romance and passion. I must say I love Zach and Kiera. I love the whole gaming element of this story. I found myself relating to Zach because he is a fixer. Zach likes to fix people and their problems. I also found myself relating to Kiera because she's a bit of a nerd.

 

Completely Yours is a must read. Full of romance and even some humor. This is about 2 lost souls coming together. I highly recommend this book. Great start to a new series. I give it 5 stars.

Review: Completely Yours (Opposites Attract Book 1) By Erin Nicholas
Completely Yours (Opposites Attract) - Erin Nicholas

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Kiera Connelly leads a quiet life, and that's just how she likes it. She's built a name as a graphic designer and meets up with with friends online, all from the comfort of her living room couch. But when a rare outing turns disastrous Kiera finds herself  up close and  way too personal with an unbelievably hot real-life hero.

 

Zach Ashley doesn't see himself as a hero. He's just a regular guy who gets to help people everyday as an EMT. But when he's called to a scene and has to treat his most gorgeous patient ever,he finds himself mixing  work with pleasure. He never hesitates to put his life on the line...but will he ever risk his heart?

 

I really enjoyed the main character Kiera because she is a lot like me in the sense she is a introvert. I am the same way.

 

I felt bad for Zach and his sister Aimee because they are going through a lot.

 

I couldn't put this book down it is a real page turner. I would recommend this book. I can not wait until the second book in this series comes out.

 

I found this book to be written in a very detailed manner in the chapters. The author is a great writer. I am looking forward to reading more books by her.

Wasted Words by Staci Hart Review

 

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored.

Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don’t go for girls like Cam Emerson.

She knew from the second she met him that he didn’t belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie. So she shelved him next to the supermodels and rock stars and took her place on her own shelf — the one with the flannel-clad, pasty-faced comic book nerds. Most of her boyfriends have existed between the pages of books, but rather than worrying over her own lacking love life, she puts all her energy into playing Cupid, using her job at the book bar, Wasted Words, as her stomping ground.

Tyler Knight always looks on the bright side. His career-ending injury turned into a job as a sports agent. A horrible breakup led him to Cam, his quirky, smart roommate who is far more beautiful than she realizes. She’s made it perfectly clear she’s not interested in him — not like that at least — but if she ever changes her mind, he won’t hesitate. Because he doesn’t see the lines she’s drawn between them, as much as she insists that they’re there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences, they’re a match well made.

Review

 

 

I loved the setting of this book in a bookstore/bar/comic shop. Heaven.

 

The literary reference were a great deal of fun as well. The hero was a sweetheart and while I adore roommate and opposites attracts themes this one did not work for me.

 

I am okay with the heroine being hurt by a past experience and I actually rather like that she was the jerk in this book and needed to check herself. But, it was a one trick pony in terms of character development. All of her development seems to stem from this one thing. We were told more about how great she was as well than seen it. I ended up not liking her because the issue lingered to long. I would have just liked to seen them in a relationship. I didn't see her grow as a character and get to spend anytime with the better her.

 

I because one million times more interested in the secondary romance which happened off stage.

 

This book also had a romance interferer which I don't love as a plot device and he was too flat a character as well.

 

I might pick up another book by this writer because there was something fun here.
