Handle With Care (Shacking Up #5) by Helena Hunting

So glad I get a can’t to read “handle with care” 🙌🏽 @helenahunting 

Book Review:

*I pop through with a lot of spoilers throughout my review****•

Ohh I am so happy that I got to read this book. Because I was counting the days until it’s released date. & I can say I wasn’t disappointed at all. But learning that Lincoln and Armstrong had a half-sister was a surprise. But I also figure something was up with their mom and it wasn’t really their father who was the bad parent. Their mother is clearly a horrible woman and took Lincoln to get rid of her. & Armstrong gets his ways from his mom, especially when she let him get by with things no matter what he did. I believe his mom also made their dad swipe Armstrong behavior under the rug. Because she did it when it came to his ex-fiancée who he cheated on at their wedding, I was glad she left him for his cousin who was a better man than him.
Though; having their sister Hope there to tame Armstrong is a blessing. I am hoping the author end up writing a book about Armstrong even though he has a pencil-di** as well as Hope because I want to see if he’ll actually change and become a better person because he doesn’t have any custody of the baby he had with Imgeon or whatever how you spell her name. I just want to see if he’ll change his creepy ways and how he speak to women he needs a woman like Wren because I felt like a woman who can smack Armstrong down a couple of notches would be good for him. Especially if their mom isn’t around anymore with her hungry money ***.
But in my mind, I think their dad probably died from having sex with Hope mom, that’s how he ended up with that heartache that led to him dying on the way to the hospital. Not only that their mom Gwendolyn clearly didn’t care about what Lincoln did when he was out there helping build things and helping other countries. He did more labor and hard work to help people more than she (Gwen) did including Armstrong who was too uptight to ride the subway 🚇…. unlike Lincoln who wanted too.

Lincoln is a way better person than Armstrong though. Especially when it comes to his personality among other things like what he wears and what the public thinks. Armstrong needs a lot of help, and I do wonder if he’ll ever get it because I believe he has a mental health issue…..

But like I said I am hoping that Armstrong (needle di**) end up with a book, along with their sister Hope and even Dani (Wren best friend) who knows Dani may can tame Armstrong, but I don’t think she’s the right person for him. But I do wonder if it’ll be the sixth book to this series.

Book Description:

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.
Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.
Wren Sterling has been working double-time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Don’t Trust the Impostor (Rockford High Book 3) by Victorine E. Lieske

Currently reading 📖…. 63% done… 

Book Review:

Awesome read

 

***¥•• I splash a bunch of spoilers throughout this review•••*^^^^¥¥

 

This book was awesome. I didn’t know I was 63% done until I had looked. I was like WOW I’m halfway finished with this book and didn’t realize I was. It’s different when you read books with longer words writing in one chapter. “I think that’s the says” lol!

But anyway, it’s interesting to know that Destiny found out about that BET well more so Eli taking money from Jack the wack job! Towards the ending of the book. Because I was like when is she going to learn what happened and why Jack and Eli be sneak talking! But clearly Destiny couldn’t see the LIGHT until Eli came in the picture because without Eli; 9 out of 10 she would’ve been with Jack. If he didn’t break up with her first; or that girl that Jack was dating didn’t come forward and snitch on him about his cheating!

Lord knows I was HAPPY when she broke it off with Jack; especially when learning, he was with another girl when she called to break up with him. Plus when she found out about Eli and the money; and him helping Jack get rid of her. I was like she better forgives Eli because Jessica (her cousin) forgave her for taking/cheating with her ex-boyfriend Jack. Who by the way was a piece of crap even Jessica in her book; told Destiny, Jack wasn’t any good.. at least Destiny met Eli through Jessica and ended up actually happy.

I do hope that Eli ended up getting his dog back, but the author never mentioned anything else about his dog or them getting a house or apartment that accepts animals. But I am so ready to read the book with Cole and Amanda.. because she’s so clueless about Cole feelings; though she has feelings for him on the DL.

Book Description:

He was hot. And charming. And a total fake.

Destiny couldn’t help but like Eli. He was cute and always knew what to say to make her pulse race. But she was dating Jack so she kept her distance. Too bad Jack was treating her like a jerk.

When she finally decided to dump the jerk so she could go out with Eli, she overhears Eli talking on the phone and finds out the truth. Eli was not actually into her. He was being paid to flirt with her.

Destiny swears she will never speak to Eli again. But he won’t stop. Her heart is torn. Can she trust the impostor? 

Tomboy (The Hartigans #3) by Avery Flynn

My current read: I been wanting to read this book; I love reading tomboy books…. but I’m still waiting on a book with Finn and some girl🤷🏽‍♀️…. Tomboy by @averyflynn.

Book Review:

***There’s a few spoilers thrown around here and there in this review*****
This book was awesome. I loved the Fallon is what Zack definitely needed, especially when it came to trusting and removing those walls he builds up around his heart. It’s funny how they already met, but up until he got sick they decided that they wanted each other. But you look at it you can know someone forever and once you two get together and hang out a connection happens. That is what happened with Zack and Fallon. Her parents and siblings already knew that Fallon and Zack were dating before they both figured it out which was kind of funny.

Plus; I understood why Fallon told those reporters what really happened between Zack and his stank bucket parents. Because for one he wouldn’t have done anything about it; which I thought was stupid his teammates would’ve cared and wanted to be around him regardless of his fuck-ups especially when it came to them losing. But you look at it all that crap on Zack mind with his parents is what messed up his focus along with when it got out about that fake crap his parents put out about his where they (Ice Knights) had a hard winning the game… but in the end I was glad that they ended up locked away for what they did they were some piece of crap.

I think a lot needs to be looked into younger kids – teenagers deals and contracts because people be taking their money. I am like Zack, “trust no one”…

But in the end everything came out good for him he got the loved that he needed from his teammates, Fallon and even Lucy. Including a baby…. and marriage., but what was funny was when they both wanted to ask each other about “will you marry me” 🤣 she had the ring in the muffins he Hhatesand he had the ring In his pocket…

Book Description:

How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?

Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.

But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.

At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.

Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.

But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do. 

The Game You Play (Rixon Raiders #2) by L.A. Cotton

ARC… I’m just loving this book. Excited 😜 I get the chance to read it before it comes out!!! I will say I am not disappointed .. just glad I don’t want to punch Jason six weeks to Sunday. But Tractor I mean Lewis; I definitely want to stomp his face in the mood & kick in the crack of the xxx swear I’ll credit card him HARD……😹! Can’t stand that freaking pop tart! What a clown 🤡.. But still, want to punch Jace in the knees for the games he plays with Flick! But I already want book 3… which my mind is thinking is about Asher and xxxx…. ••••• by the way, this book is coming 📖….SEPTEMBER 17th•••••• 

Book Review:

****Spoilers; but not that many****

I got to read this early before it’s released on September 17th… I got an ARC for an honest review.

& I will say this after reading book two and especially the ending I just had to read book two and was wishing it came out earlier than September but then got my chance actually to read it before the release date.

I can say I wasn’t disappointed at all only problem I had was with Lewis; he was just horrible like the hate he had for Jace was ridiculous. & to top it off he still LOSE regardless because of what Jenny (I really don’t care to remember her name) 🤣 I think it’s Jenna but back to what I was saying the things he and Jenna did was horrible especially when he tried to out Jace and Flick with those pictures that Jenna took of them at the lake.

Just because of what Jace did to Amiee which did forgive him for because of how she made him turn out to be. But he became a better person when he got with Felicity. She made him a better person. I also glad that Felicity followed her own dreams rather than following her parent’s dreams.

Not only that I was glad when Jason realize his feelings; though he pushes her away to protect her. But still, in the end, the piece of crap Tracker dust, still knew he had feelings for Felicity because of Tracker dust side trash. But in the end, I was like FINALLY Jason you figured it out and wanted to be with the girl, even by protecting her when it came to the pictures, but also felt bad for Asher, though he was the one that decided to take the fall. But with the help of Maya, I don’t think it’ll be too bad, especially when he plays for college football team once they graduate.

P.S. I can’t wait for Asher and Maya story……Book #3

Book Review:

**I splash a lot of spoilers maybe some straight facts too through this review***
This book was good, but half the time I got annoyed because Lucy was getting on my last nerve. About how she this big girl and no guy would go for a big girl… I kept rolling my eyes because I am like she needs to embrace being this big forget what people say about you. Love the person; you are no matter if you are BIG or SMALL! Even though this is fiction, people go through a weight problem every day. Just like you could be a person who is skinny here come to this person trying to bring you down because you aren’t a BIGGER size. That’s what people was doing to Lucy; they were trying to bring her down because she wasn’t a SMALLER size.

Reading this, I am like girl please shut up. Because for one, a skinny woman goes through the same thing. I never understood how someone of a bigger size end up made the smaller size women whereas if someone of a smaller size say “you fat” they get mad but don’t realize you can’t say omg you “need to eat” doesn’t affect someone of a smaller size because they aren’t bigger bone.

I agreed with Frankie about Lucy didn’t need to eat a salad just because some pop belly flip basket wanted her to when he wasn’t even attractive and try to come for her. But I did want to smack her sideways because she kept whining about how Frankie didn’t like her; when technically he actually liked her maybe even loved her but she was so offensive and guarded it took her a while to understand “while this man actually does care about me no matter my size”… because for one I also realized why Frankie was the man-whore from learning what his dad did when he was a teenager than keeping that crap balled up inside could affect someone and their relationship. Same thing when it came to Lucy and her parent’s relationship it affects Lucy, plus with her bullying from Constance. Who I think was a crap pop because she was clearly a mean person. Rather being a nice person to Lucy; knowing that she “Constance” was going to chemotherapy, I believe it was when she was a teenager. I never think someone would be so cruel when going through something like that… I still think instead of herself being an evil B-witch she could’ve followed her dreams eventually after things got better for her instead of having a hard-on and hating Lucy from teenagers to adulthood, but at least she did apologize to Lucy for being an evil B-witch!!!

Plus she literally annoyed when they went to be a bar for Frankie brother engagement… like she got mad at him when those idiot cops said: “fat-chicks-are-crazier-in-bed” like a girl her your life… Frankie doesn’t think that… I can’t wait until I’m done with this book… Lucy pass, annoying! But in the end, it’s good that they both came to an understanding they both was wrong; though Lucy was the one that pushes Frankie away before they could form a relationship. Whereas Frankie just was holding on to old feelings about Becky and his dad Frankie Sr. Which is good that he got the truth from his father and twin-brother Finn about his father didn’t kiss Becky; she kissed him and then apologize to Katie > who is Frankie mom!
But I’m waiting on a book with Tess and Finn!!! I just have to have a book with them!

Book Description:

The only thing about me that’s a size zero is the filter on my mouth. I’ve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And I’m perfectly fine with that.

But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if I’d ordered a salad instead of a hamburger I’m shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me.

That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. He’s hot. He’s funny… And he’s just apologized for being late for our “date” then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, he’s sitting down and ordering himself dinner.

I have no problem telling him I don’t need a pity date… unless of course it’s to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that he’s said yes?!

Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what… 

The Ruthless Boys (Adamson All-Boys Academy #2) by C.M. Stunich

Reading book one ending had me halfway crying but reading this book so far got me happy because of what I thought at the end of book 1… let’s hope no one I like here killed in this one.

Book Review:

Ruthless boys

*** There’s spoilers; but not many*****

Bruh that ending is so annoying stay leaving cliffhangers every time. Then I hate where there are no preorders for the next book…

Plus I figured something might have been up with Church. I mean clearly; he was kind of psycho… but who even knows, because he may be doing self-defense and was trying to save himself or Charlotte. I’ll find that out in book three whenever it comes out. 

I also don’t like her dad… because he fulls dog poop. Because for one he was acting weird as heck when it comes to his daughter and the murders that are going on. Not only that I think the Church may know more than he let on so who knows until we get to book three. 

Clearly, she’s now dating four of the guy’s mines Church, but I am hoping she’ll end up with Spencer as her full-blown boyfriend ONLY. Knowing her, she may end up with all 5 of them or just four… 

I can’t wait to find out what really going to happen next in book three. & what will they (Ranger, Twins & Spencer along with Charlotte) find out! 

I also think the people at the place Charlotte at more likely going to find out she’s a girl too, especially when she wet. But I want to know who was chasing her was it the killer or Church weird self!

Psst, I know a secret. 

The same secret that the Student Council—the super-rich, super handsome elite of Adamson All-Boys Academy—knows, too. 

Jenica Woodruff, the only girl to ever attend the academy before I showed up, didn’t commit suicide: she was murdered. 

Now, someone is after me, too, but no matter where I go, the killer follows. My new high school isn’t safe, and turns out, neither is my old one. 

I’m not a member of the Student Council, but after everything we’ve been through together, after the horrible things we’ve seen, I may as well be. These ruthless boys have taken me under their wing. 

Church, the fearless leader (and hopeless coffee addict). Ranger, the bada** VP (and naked baker). The identical McCarthy twins (and MMA enthusiasts). And Spencer, the boy who was willing to question everything about himself to fall for me … oh, Spencer. 

Murder and romance are both in the air at Adamson; I’m just not sure which one will kill me first.

Engaged to Mr. Perfect: An Accidental Marriage Romance (Mr. Right Series Book 3) by Lilian Monroe

Current read… but I’m over these Vegas didn’t know I’ll wake up married books. 🙄..:… that’s why I stop reading certain books or never consider because it talks about the same “thing”… but all things considering this book good. Just glad it’s kinda different besides the marriage crap pop. 

Book Review:

It was good!!!

****Spoilers; just a little bit….****

Ahhh. I like this book. It was kind of annoying though it was funny. Annoying meaning “marriage in Vegas when they were drunk” that’s like every author goes too. It’s pretty annoying when it comes to that storyline… but I was glad that the book was still good even though the marriage crap was ridiculous… but what came out of their Vegas trip was Andrew and Meghan ruining Meg sister wedding it was hilarious when the dove poop on her sister Nadine or whatever he name is head. That was priceless.

I thought that Nadine actually deserved it; because clearly, you could see that Meg family disliked her regardless of her being a sugar daddy when she was young in college to her being a physical therapist as an adult. They didn’t want to work anything out. & it’s ridiculous how they wanted her own dove duty when they didn’t like her to begin with… with her family being evil villains I said at least she’ll have Andrew family who shows love and show that they cared… you see that his mom didn’t disown him for what he did when he was young and in college when he told her over the phone. 

But at least they got themselves clear of Hannah trying to ruin both of their lives.. that girl clearly had a problem, and bipolar mental illness isn’t a joke… at least Andrew hot is 2.1 million back and Hannah got the help that she needed…

The Garden (Shelfbrooke Academy #4) by Amy Sparling, Shelfbrooke Academy

This book is actually good. I’ve been flying through these books. & this is one of them .. I’m 61% done…

Book Review:

The gardens • 🌿🌼🍁🍂

****Throwing spoilers throughout this review ****

This book was really good. It took me maybe three days; maybe two to finish it… it’s like the book twelfth Knight (meaning; I finish it really fast) but anyways. I was glad that Declan came to his senses and realized that he shouldn’t hide from Sophia, knowing that he actually liked her. Also; with her speaking up for herself when it came to her parents was also good. Being a trust fund kid; can have its perks and also be hard, especially if your parents are controlling your every move.

But with Sophia moving to New England; and going to boarding school actually helped her to become a better person. Not only that she realize those friends of hers in Malibu wasn’t really a real friend as Declan and Belle were to her. Because clearly everybody didn’t reach out to her once she left… Plus; those students in her school was wack though since neither of them wanted to get to know her; because of a creep like Chad who in the end ended up getting into trouble with selling pills…

Not only that she also helped her cousin with her anxiety if it wasn’t for Sophia, but I also don’t think Belle would’ve left her room the way she did when Sophia mentions the gardens. The gardens actually helped both Sophia and her cousin Bella and also good that she thought college was an option for her, especially since she didn’t care for it when she was in Malibu.

I did like how Sophia got Declan family their garden back by talking to her parents and using her trust fund is a good way to help her boyfriend. But at least her mom said she’ll get it back eventually. But I doubt Sophia cared lol.

Book Description:

Sophia Brass has it all—money, freedom, and a total life of luxury. When Sophia’s parents go abroad, she’s sent to the prestigious boarding school of Shelfbrooke Academy. Here she shares a dorm with her estranged cousin, Belle, whose extreme social anxiety hasn’t let her leave the room in three years. Thanks to her reputation as a stuck-up brat, Sophia isn’t really friends with anyone. Especially not Declan Moss, the popular senior who is too smart, too cute, and too annoying for his own good. 

The boarding school’s gardens become her refuge where she can do her school work in solace, away from the mocking and unfriendly students. One day she finds a hidden door in the gardens that she’s positive leads somewhere special. Somewhere she could truly hide out from everything. Maybe it could even get her cousin to finally leave her room. 

This hidden garden could fix everything. Only the door is locked. 

And she’s pretty sure the key belongs to Declan. 

The Garden is a modern retelling of the classic novel The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It’s a part of the Shelfbrooke Academy series, a collection of retellings that promise to be a lot more fun than the originals! 

Say Yes by Elle Kennedy

Reading the description had me curious…. even though it’s a “short read” but it also had me thinking 🤔 this guy gotta be a twin. I haven’t found out or not if she-bang the groom or not 🤣 but knowing me I bet it’s the groom’s men. 

Book Review:

*** There are spoilers throughout ****

Okay, I was so curious about this book and wanted to know what this book was about well no I wanted to know what will happen in this book. I also figured that Dirk aka Evan was actually a freaking twin… like I thought it was hilarious how she confronted EVAN who she thought was Devon and told her best friend she bangs her fiancé… when in reality she actually didn’t. Good thing; that Marcy knew the twins apart because even she had to realize the error in Emilia mistaken the twins. 

Even when she checks her events, etc., she still got it confused when it came to the twins. & only figured it out when she saw them together. Well more so when Evan stated she-bang, his brother after she was with him that night… 🤣 he wasn’t playing around either when it came to getting with her again… it takes a song they both liked for Emilia to figure out that it was a good idea to go back and see how things would end when it came to Evan.
But I wish it was a longer book though because I wanted to know if they were going to end up dating and maybe married like her best friend… I know I saw their names at the end of the book like at the beginning with Marcy and Devon…

Butterface (The Hartigan’s #1) by Avery Flynn

I really wanted to read “Tomboy”…. but wanted to start with the first book 📖 first!!!!! & I can say it’s pretty good too…. @averyflynn 

Book Review:

****I pointed out a few spoilers; I had to give in this review****** 

When reading this book, it makes me understand when you look a certain way. Even if you have a scar on your body, a big forehead and even a big nose like Gina does it’s like that’s the first thing someone sees… is your big lips or big ears. They never see the person that you are or try to get to know you…

Just a Gina having a big nose… I’m going to state something but also similar to what Gina has. It’s this author a female she has a big nose, and she’s a very beautiful woman, but I had stated and pointed to someone about how she looks like the singer Mya… but the only thing they looked at was her “nose” and not her actual face…

It’s crazy how people can think you are ugly because you look different. I understand what Gina has gone through though never had a big nose or whatever but bullying of how you look; even if you aren’t ugly. I bet that Gina isn’t ugly, not at all. That’s why I liked how Ford looked beyond her nose and got to know her and wanted to kiss her regardless of how she looks. To me, the only thing someone can say about her and point out about her is her “nose” and butterface… it’s like when people make a stupid immature joke it’s always the same wack joke… but I didn’t like how Ford came about getting to know Gina; knowing how overprotective her brothers are and how insecure she is when it comes to her looks. & he got to know her on a false detail about her grandfather… 
After what happened when Ford came over with that stupid apology and looked through the box her brothers Paul and Rocco left her I understood why she was upset and told him to go… like really my guy that was just mad wrong on so many levels… I did like it when Gina was with her friends and stated that:

“I just want a man who sees me and doesn’t see the ugly girl. He sees me, and he loves me, not in spite of my face but partly because of it.” I mean what girl doesn’t want that for herself even if you are beautiful or ugly…

But I did like the fact; that Ford came to Gina and apologized finally and told her how he felt… but falling the step again… Am I like really? Especially Gina like who cries and just step on steps you know messed up and was getting fixed like sheesh!!!! But at least they got a happy ending in the end…. because regardless of anything Ford thought she was beautiful and also looked out for her brothers when he didn’t have to I was glad when she finally realize because his family really cared about Gina….& her brothers liked Ford too even though they gave him a hard time… but she did get on my nerves sometimes because I am like girl just embrace the “ugly” clearly he thinks you aren’t UGLY! But insecurities will do that to a person; often a lot of people have those regardless of how their life may be… 

P.S. I liked the ending though with their daughter wanting to punch her cousin 🤣 was saying “get out of the way big nose” I said to myself I bet he is going to be the one to protect her in school too when people try to bully her.

Book Description:

It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…

Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.

I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.

But then he kisses me.

And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.

Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.

Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.

But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.

Because this is not a make-over story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…
