Book Tour - Frenemies




by Nicole Blanchard

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance



Purchase: Apple Books | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Google Play



Dashiel Hampton is her enemy.


Layla Tate reminds herself of that fact every morning she goes to class and sees his smug face smirking up at her. There hasn’t been a moment they weren’t pitted against each other and she refuses to back down…not even when she learns he’s her new teaching assistant.


Layla Tate is going down.


There is nothing that makes Dash Hampton as happy as the look on Layla’s face when she realizes he’s won. He lives to drive her crazy because if he can’t have her beneath him, then he’ll have her any other way he can. He’ll get her to notice him, even if it means making her semester a living hell. When their classroom rivalry crosses the line between frenemies and forbidden, the hardest lesson they’ll have to learn is that sometimes you have to lose to win.







“I said I was a virgin, Dash, not that I was completely inexperienced.”


With that statement, Layla straddled me in one swift movement that had my eyes popping open and my hands settling on her hips. “What are you doing?”


She fitted her mouth to my neck, and I arched back, but there was nowhere to go. “You’re crazy if you think you aren’t good enough for anyone.”


Sweet mother of God, I could feel the heat of her through my jeans and the strain of my dick against my pants was going to send me to an early grave. “That’s a veritable compliment coming from you.”


“I’m pretty sure it was a compliment.” Her fingers begin mapping my shoulders, tracing my chest, and I wondered if I was in heaven or hell.


“I always knew you were sadistic,” I managed to say.


She let out a throaty giggle. “I think you’re masochistic because you sure seem to like it.”


My hands bit into her hips. “Oh, I like it, but you need to stop.”


Layla ground down onto my erection. “Are you sure?”


“Christ, Layla,” I bit out, then drove my fingers into her hair. I took her mouth with a violence that shocked the both of us. After a few moments, I broke it off. Breathing hard, I asked, “What do you want from me?” I wanted to tell her, take it, you can have whatever you want, but I didn’t think she was ready for that.








Frenemies (Friend Zone Series Book 2)Frenemies by Nicole Blanchard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is #2, in the Friend Zone series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and have a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading it in order.

Layla has been competing with Dash for many years. Suddenly he is her instructor for a college course. Under other circumstances she may have had an alternative but this is forced upon her to graduate.

Dash has been attracted to Layla for some time. Her being upset and angry - he finds it hot. As her teacher he can't do anything about it. Not that she would let him. Only time will tell now.

This was kind of a punch to the gut right from the start. Everything happened so fast for the characters. The sparks are definitely flying. The series continues with some heat and angst.

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

Review: Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

This is one of many series I heard so much about that I had to see what all the fuss is about.

And I must say that the first half of the book I kept asking myself why why why. The book was written so well that not only Juliette felt tortured but I did as well. The writing was tricky good , I wanted to quit but I couldn’t, It just kept me glued to the pages pages pages. And about half way through I really liked it and it really changed for the better.

For a second I thought we had insta love story and it sort of was but also not. It made it more interesting and also gave you more history of both of them.

Juliette was a bit annoying annoying annoying , but as we go on she gets more likeable and I really liked her towards the end for the most part. It seemed like she needed a purpose to stand up and fight and I was cheering her on when she finally did.

I was pretty indifferent towards Adam , I didn’t love him but also didn’t hate him, he is just kind of there to me. I hope that will change later on.

Waren on the other hand… I LOVED him …. I loved the freaking villain, he is bad and he is evil and should be put down but man there was something about him that I loved. Maybe that he was honest about shit.

Once we met Kenji I loved it, I also really enjoyed him so much, he gave this dark world some humor that is much needed. Because neither Adam nor are Juliette all that funny but that is also understandable.

I didn’t really see the end coming and yet I did, I figured something like that but not to that extent and I’m curious to see what happens next.  I just hope the romance doesn’t take away from the story.

Overall the book is pretty good once you get the first half I thought and I rate it 3★  and since I already own book two and tree I will at least start with book two right away.
