DARK MATTER BY: BLAKE CROUCH
Dark Matter: A Novel - Blake Crouch

I thought this was a really unique, dark & twisty read, and I loved it! Crouch has a way of talking about these huge intricate things but in a really down-to-earth way that makes it seamless to follow right along. It was really fast paced and it honestly kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Surprisingly romantic in a really weird/frightening/fantastic way too lol. I definitely see why so many people were raving about this one.

My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1391087734">3 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
I really did like that Zara was able to keep Andres on his toes and go head to head with him. He was a jerk and his behavior towards others were unconscionable. While I understand he had a rough childhood and acting out became a way to get attention, he's a grown man and he needs to act like it. There was a nice amount of angst and tension in this story and Zara and Andres had great chemistry. I think I would have enjoyed it more if Andres was a touch more likable. It's been a while, but I recall that Zara's backstory was tortured as well. I did feel a lot of sympathy for her and I wanted her to be loved the way she deserved. I liked Andres' colder older brother Kairos a lot, or let's say he intrigued me. I thought there was a story to be told about his marriage. It got me excited to read Kairos's story <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25434325.The_Queen_s_New_Year_Secret__Princes_of_Petras___2_" title="The Queen's New Year Secret (Princes of Petras, #2) by Maisey Yates" rel="nofollow">The Queen's New Year Secret</a>, but I didn't like it as much as this one, sadly. <br /><br />The good chemistry and the angsty storyline made it a <b>3.5 star</b> read for me.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Lucas" (Unbreakable Bonds, #1.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Unbreakable Stories: Lucas - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

A much appreciated follow-up collection, which turns the HFN from the first book “Shiver” into a solid HEA during the course of 6 short stories.

 

This series is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, and I’m giddy with pleasure that I’m only at the beginning and that there are many more books left for me to read.

 

~ 5 STARS ~

ARC REVIEW Now or Never by Victoria Denault
Score (San Francisco Thunder) - Victoria Denault
Slammed (San Francisco Thunder) - Victoria Denault
When It's Right (San Francisco Thunder #3) - Victoria Denault


Now or Never (San Francisco Thunder #4)San Francisco Thunder #4, Even though this is a SF Thunder book is does lean more toward just being a straight Contemporary Romance than a Sports Romance. The last Braddock sister finally finds her true HEA and it's not with anyone we have previously met. I loved how emotional charged this book is compared to the others, it's all about grieving and starting over again.

Winnie is grieving differently than her siblings, she finally come to the realization she couldn't be happy with her boyfriend of ten years especially after he cheated on her so she did what she should have done two years ago and dumped him. Now all she wants is to be left alone where she can drown her sorrow and grieve in peace without her siblings butting in. But doing this in the family summer home was disrupted when Holden Hendricks sets up right outside and starts the renovations her brother had secretly planned.

Holden didn't leave town his childhood hometown on a good not when he was a teenager. He was an angry kid in need of attention after his mother died and he got into all sorts of trouble that eventually landed him in juvie. Since then he's worked hard first with construction and worked his way up to contractor. The whole reason he moved back home was to be closer to his older sister and her son but it's a bridge he burned a long time ago and rebuilding it is harder than he hoped. He's hoping that if the renovations and remodeling of homes will help people see him in a different light especially the Braddock sibling he teased mercilessly and who also happened to be is favorite, Winnie.

The attraction is strong with these two it's practically been simmering beneath the surface since they were kids. Holden is hesitant for a lot of reasons, Winnie just broke up with her really long time boyfriend and is grieving but mostly she hates him. Winnie as much as she wants to hate Holden he is a different person from when he was younger he wants to make things right with the people he hurt and Winnie believes in him. But there are obstacles for them to get over mostly ones they created themselves.

Overall, a very emotional book and a really hot romance. I loved Winnie and Holden they are just perfect for each other. There is some hockey so it's not entirely devoid of sports. This book had funny moments, hot encounters, and plenty of emotion. I'd love to see some more of the SF Thunder boys get their own book.

Review! More Than Need You (More Than Words #2) Shayla Black!

 

 

Happy Hump Day, Readers! Today I am going to backtrack to 2017 and share the 2nd book in Shayla Black's More Than Words series - More Than Need You! Enjoy & don't forget to add More Than Need You to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

 

Book Two in Shayla Black’s sexy and emotional contemporary romance series More Than Words…

 

I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

 

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


Book two in the More Than Words series is another emotionally gritty romance that draws readers in and refuses to let go. After throwing the love of his life, Griffin’s discovered that they have a son together and decides he will do whatever it takes to win her back. Britta is engaged and on the cusp of moving on with her life and there is no way she open her heart enough to let Griffin in again. Griffin and Britta are strong, characters that readers can’t help but feel for as they try to navigate the tense emotional roller coaster of the current situations and the emotions that flow between this couple is poignant, gritty and real. They have the sizzling chemistry and the undeniable attraction but the trust just isn’t there and readers can’t help but become caught up in the anticipation of what will this couple have to endure and will they be able to reach that happily ever after stage.

 

The story flows at a steady pace and with lots of uncertainty which keeps readers glued to the pages of this intense and emotion charged romance. The characters really reach out to readers and it is obvious that this couple belong together but proving that one can be trusted is easier said than done and in order to really win the heart, one needs to let go of the past and purge it from their system by sharing the pain with the other and the author has made that painfully clear in this realistically feeling romance that caused me shed more than a few tears.
