Kiss Me Not (Kiss Me #1) by Emma Hart

Part 1 of this series… at least this one better than “her bush” … my current read “KISS Me Not”…..

Book Review:

Not that many spoilers soo…
This was actually a good book; there’s much I can say about this book.
Only thing I can say I did have some good laughs while reading it. Though, it was weird and interesting to learn how Halley had raccoons for pets and feeding them peanut butter sandwiches. I kept thinking, will the peanut butter hurt those animals or get stuck. But I guess not since they came back for more.

I also knew that kissing booth was going to end up pulling then together and show them. The feelings they both had for one another. Plus, Preston’s sister Reagan was determined to get them together, including Ava, because they both knew that Preston and Halley had a crush on one another. But after I got to end and learning about **** pic, I’m definitely going to read Reagan’s story because I’m curious…

Book Description:

What do you do when you’re the reigning kissing booth champion but the only person you want to kiss is your best friend’s brother?

Let me make this clear right here, right now: I, Halley Dawson, do not care that Preston Wright is kissing other women.
Not a lick. Not at all. Nuh-uh-freakin’-uh.
I do care that he’s doing it six feet away from me behind a gaudy velvet curtain—making him my competition in this year’s kissing contest.
Why do I care, you ask? Because I’ve had an unfortunate crush on the insufferable idiot since I was sixteen years old, but I also know it’s never going to happen.
He’s the Creek Falls bachelor to die for, and I’m the Creek Falls racoon lady who puts peanut butter sandwiches out for them every night.
I’m not going to let him break my four-year-long reign—no matter how many times he breaks the rules and slides the curtain across to do the one thing he’s not allowed to:

Kiss me. 

Her Secret (Objects of Attraction #5) by Penelope Bloom

My next read “Her Secret” 📖… half-way reading this book I learn where these new people come from in the next series. This one and the next one after this… 

Book Review:

There’s a couple of spoilers in and there. But probably not that many.,

So I finally got around to reading the next book to this series. & I can say I am not disappointed. It was really good; I also can say that I knew Peter had a thing for Violet; I mean, when Derek was flirting with her on the first day, it was funny how mad he got and demanded her to come to his office. I was a dang boy; just tell this girl you like her already. But I also understood how he didn’t want to trust the next female who works for him because of what Kristen did to him. Which was just horrible it’s funny how people can do things to you like that and don’t think anything is wrong.
One thing I can say if it weren’t for him meeting Violet, I don’t think he would’ve gotten the rights back for his book. That he wrote, when someone steals your hard work, and you have actual proof of that work everywhere, you can get it again even if you sign something or you didn’t because that is stealing. I was glad he got his thriller back with the help of Violet. I did want to smack him because I thought he was about to diss Violet and not talk to her just because she never told him about her daughter, I mean who wouldn’t when someone you trying to get a job from telling you, only way you get this job is if you have no obligations (like kids, etc.) at home…

But in the end they made a happy family; I also was wondering how in the world Peter and Violet fit into this series because I was like how do they know any of the guys or women in this book.. but I learn that Violet is best friends with Lilith and Peter is friends with Bruce… I also see that William still wild…

43833236. sy475

Book Description:

I’ll admit it. I messed up.
Mistake #1: Asking Peter Barnidge for a job.
Mistake #2: Accepting his offer instead of throwing it in his face like I planned.
Mistake #3: In the interest of stopping before #99, I’ll pretend the only other mistake was withholding one, tiny little nugget of truth during my interview.

Peter Barnidge… Where do I even start? How about that after my first day working for Mr. Superstar International Bestselling Author, his name became my favorite kid-friendly cursing substitute. Stub a toe? Peter Barnidge it! Bank account is overdrawn? Son of a Barnidge! And when I realized I was falling for my boss? Well, what the Barnidge?

I wish it was easier to just plain hate him, instead of the twisted, confusing blend of hatred and attraction I feel. But he’s the bad kind of attractive. Dark with a side of smoldering heat. The kind of hot that makes me want to do that Catholic cross thing every time I look at him, because one glance takes my brain straight to a world of sin.

Speaking of sin… I also lied a little during my interview. But I’m a single mom and I’d do anything to provide for my daughter, even if it meant keeping one tiny little secret. Unfortunately, even small secrets have a way of growing over time.

I think it’s only a matter of time before he finds out, and somehow, I don’t think he’s going to be happy when he does.

Awk-Weird (Ice Knights #2) by Avery Flynn

I was waiting to read this book. & I’m like Cole just stop bringing up Marti and get with the awkward nerd who’s best for you cause she’s better… Currently reading 📖 “AWK-WEIRD

Book Review:

There’s a possibility of a few or more spoilers than it should be in this review… but let’s see…
So okay, I definitely liked this book. I didn’t expect Tess to be with a Hockey player I was for sure she was going to end up with Finn. So with that being said, I want a book with Finn since his brothers and sister got one…

But let’s continue with Cole and Tess’s story. I so didn’t see that coming.. with how they ended up together and she being a parent… I felt like Tess was some like Lucy some-what whinny but wasn’t beyond whiny and complaining as Lucy was about her weight… I understood why she felt like things were temporary. But it was annoying too because she kept on running away from things when it got series. To me, she didn’t give Cole a chance to be with her, and also he didn’t speak his mind in the way he felt. Like the others in the books with the hockey players, they both ended up saying bad things to each other and walking away…

But what I can say I was happy that it was a girl who got the guy by explaining her fuck-ups because clearly in the other books it was the guys apologizing when half the time the women were idiots and didn’t see that the guys love them. I could tell that Cole was in love with her like he kept sending her out these voicemails and couldn’t wait to get home. He even didn’t care about that way. She kept bringing up random things when she got nerves. He actually answered back. I was glad when her friends Fallon, Gina, and Lucy, got some sense into her when it came to her and Cole’s relationship. Because she couldn’t see that Cole didn’t have those feelings for Marti as he had before because both he and Marti had moved on she to herTech guy and her own to Tess. I did think that they had a son because of what was mentioned in the book with Stucky and Zara… but whatever.
P.S. this book mentioned all the guys, but Stucky, when in his book, it mentioned Cole a lot. I was like I thought they were friends where is he at… between that I cannot wait until book 3 “Loud Mouth” comes about Ian.. plus I am hoping for a book with Alex… definitely need one with him too.

Book Description:

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.

So when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party… You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the fact that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me.

There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again… right?

Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?

Oh my God, I wish I knew… 

Parental Guidance (Ice Knights #1) by Avery Flynn

Currently reading 📖Parental Guidance” after reading some of this book. I now figured out why it’ll be called Parental Guidance 

Book Review:

This book was really good. I was glad that it actually a series about the Ice Knights hockey team. Since the Tomboy book was based on a hockey player…

But anyway, not that many spoilers in this book.

But I will say I am not disappointed at all in this book. I had to start this story because Awk-ward had come out, and I wanted to read that one but first Parental guidance first… I think that the polar opposite does attract, and it does take that one guy to make you do things you’ve been too shy or think you aren’t able to do. Caleb was the right fit for especially with the orgasm and liking her miniatures artisans. She was a different plus; this my first time hearing about artisans… & I love all types of art since art is my passion. Other than that…. this book was good, but I do want to know what teammate had smash Asha sister…. probably was Christensen… but I can’t wait to read part 2 with Cole and Tess… I didn’t see that coming with Cole and Tess… this sis mentioned Cole child though so more likely he’s having a boy and when we get to book two we already know this lol! I think Cole needed this change the same as Caleb… I figured Caleb had a learning disability soon as he said the letters move around. I’m like… yeah, he got dyslexia… & the teacher that made him read in front of the class every day makes me want to karate chop his *** ass hard! So wrong to do that to someone who can’t read or have a hard time with numbers etc. and make it a joke. But at lease, Caleb came out strong, and he has a family in his mom and his teammates who don’t care if he has such learning disability or not even Zara though she said some hurtful things at least they worked it out in the end and got married and had a daughter. Though; I did want to know where Caleb’s dad went… and why he wasn’t in his life…


43967624. sy475

Book Description:

All I want is to play hockey on the Ice Knights, instead, I’m in a viral video for all the wrong reasons and my mom—yes, my mom—has taken over my dating apps. Then, when I think it can’t get any worse, the fates deliver Zara Ambrose, a five-feet-nothing redhead with more freckles than inches and who’d rather be anywhere other than on a date with me.

Now a bet with her friends and my PR nightmare have us both stuck in this go-on-five-dates-with-the-same-person hell situation. But if we band together, we can get the whole thing over with and go on with our lives. It’s perfect! No feelings. No future. No fuc— *ahem* fun. No naked fun.

What could go wrong? Nothing—as long as I remember the rules. Don’t notice the way she looks in a dress. Don’t react when she does that little shivery sigh thing whenever we touch. Don’t think about the fact that she’s never had a toe-curling orgasm that wasn’t self-delivered and just how badly I want to change that.

Five dates—that’s it—and then we go our separate ways. At least, that was the plan.

Love Lessons (Shelfbrooke Academy #5) by Daphne James Huff

Current read 📖....Process 27% done. ‘

Book Review:

More like lessons learn…

*** There’s a couple of spoilers in this review; not that many but a few****

I’m glad I got around to reading this book though it took me a while. This book is pretty different, but it’s interesting to learn that these stories from this series are based on older books. That’s I never really read or want to read.

But I did like the Sonnets… & not only that I was glad that Rex friends Bronx and Reggie finally spoken up to Rex because clearly he was controlling ( more so wanted to control things) and he finally realize when Zara left for a family emergency he was an idiot to jump down her throat and was so worried about that prize that he’s dad never won. & speaking of the dad… I bet he felt some way too because Rex actually won something that he clearly didn’t win. Plus, he was the one to set it up (more so agree) to the group of three for the prize competition. But in the end, he got fool because regardless, Rex won even when he nor Zara was there. I think he would’ve been better off with his mom’s help than his dad. But his right to talk to his dad to get honest answers.

But I was glad in the end that he finally came to his senses and got his girl. & with Zara he parents just wanted her to learn to be on her own without her friends or her family being there. I understand; because it’s like you never want to go someplace or be somewhere alone. & you have actually to learn to do things on your own eventually. I was glad that she was learning too, and she and her friends Rosalie and Maria ended up with Bronx and Reggie.

Book Description:

One semester. No distractions.

Simple, right?

On the verge of winning the biggest literary prize at Shelfbrooke, Rex swears off all girls and parties, and prepares for a distraction-free semester.

It’s the perfect plan.

But when his grades aren’t good enough to participate in the contest, he ends up in tutoring with the new exchange student.

Zara’s been banished to a boring boarding school in America to work on her English.

She’s willing to do whatever it takes to get back to France as soon as possible–even if it means teaming up with the one guy who wants nothing to do with her.

But as the weeks go by and feelings grow, will he realize some things are more important than winning before time runs out?

Love Lessons is a modern retelling of the classic Shakespeare play Love’s Labour’s Lost. It’s a part of the Shelfbrooke Academy series, a collection of retellings that promise to be a lot more fun than the originals!

 

Meet Me at Half Court: All’s Fair in Love and Sports Series by Julie L. Spencer (Goodreads Author), Lisa Rector (Goodreads Author) (Editor)

This book is actually good 

Book Review:

***Not so many spoilers but there’s a couple****
This book was really good. For one, I finished this book in two days… I just started on this yesterday… & I’m now finished. I figured that Chris (Christine) was going to choose Dylan over Eddie… like get real who wants to date a guy name, Eddie. Dylan sounds hotter…
But anyway this was a good book. Though cause I liked how the girl was a tomboy and everybody liked her and called her Chris because of her skills on the court and being a tomboy! I don’t think Eddie would’ve done all of the things and know all of the things as Dylan did when it came to Christine. Because all he cared about was wanting to bang her, whereas Dylan didn’t mind kissing Christine but not taking it to far. I was like Eddie better not try raping her. & I was glad he didn’t. & I was also glad when Chris finally realize that she wanted Dylan to cover Eddie. I mean clearly, everybody, including Dylan’s mom, wanted her with Dylan. Not only that, EVERYBODY thought that Chris & Dylan were together even when Eddie was locked away in Juvie…


46261438. sy475

Book Description:

All’s fair in love and sports… until her boyfriend comes home.

Basketball was Christine’s ticket from high school to college and her dream of becoming a scientist. The cocky new kid at school was getting in her way, and into her heart.

Dylan knew his snarky new tutor was smart, gorgeous and a great basketball player. He just didn’t realize she had a boyfriend, until after he kissed her.

Now he has a choice, play fair and wait for Eddie to screw up? Or fight to win back Christine’s heart? 

The Help (Kings of Linwood Academy #1) by Callie Rose

This book actually good. Plus; she stands up to her bullies. Though I think the guys like her. & this book reminds me of CM Stinch book “The Secret Girl” but it’s also different from it…

Book Review:

Soon good; but the ending

Bruh

This book was really good! Like sheesh!

***There are a few spoilers in this review***

Omg, how good is this book; like these guys were horrible to her, and I am like they have to like her. But also broken her trust in the end. When her mom got the blame for the murder of Iris. I can’t wait to read book two because I want to know what happens next. But I have to read a couple of books first before I get to the next book. Maybe two at least..:

But ugh! It was so wrong for them to get her to trust them and then use her and don’t have her back when it came to her mom getting locked up. I cannot wait until everything comes to light about Iris’s death and among all the lies that town has… Plus, I believe Savannah was spreading a bunch of lies about Harlow. & the police are just a bad as the people. Like sheesh, and what happened on the first day of school was by far the worse, but I was glad that she didn’t back down to her bullies and made them feel weak… but those guys ugh! But enough she ended up having *** with Lincoln more than once. Like she builds that trust, I was glad that she didn’t mention to them that she was a cancer survivor. They probably would’ve used that or mistreated her for having cancer at a young age until she better; was able to live…

I definitely want to smack those guys that crap though for a lot of things like TRUST is something serious, and it’s sucks when it’s actually BROKEN. Because you learn not to trust anyone, especially those who hurt you. & 9/10 in either book two or three those guys going to try to get back in good with her, and I hope she either doesn’t forgive them or take a while to forgive them for what they did. It doesn’t matter if they didn’t want to speak up; that girl’s mother is going to jail for something she didn’t do, and the ONLY person she has is her mother, who got taken away right in front of her…


45315522. sy475

Book Description:

Rich boys don’t fraternize with the help.
They don’t torture the help.
They don’t crave the help.

For as long as I can remember, my mom and I have lived on the edge of ruin, so when she finally gets a decent job offer, she moves us cross-country to take it.

Who cares if it means working as a live-in housekeeper for a man wealthier than God? The paycheck is good, and it comes with a roof over our heads.

She even manages to get me enrolled in the fancy prep academy his son goes to—the kind that spits out future CEOs and politicians like a vending machine.

But this new town has a few things my old one didn’t…

Like secrets that could get a person killed, and four of the hottest, meanest guys I’ve ever met.

I might live in their world now, but I am not a part of it, and they’ll do whatever it takes to remind me of that.

We go to school together, live together, and share a dangerous secret, but as far as Lincoln, River, Dax, and Chase are concerned…

I’m just the help.

***AUTHOR’S NOTE: The Help is a reverse harem high school bully romance, the first book in the Kings of Linwood Academy trilogy. It contains cursing and sexual situations.

Hard Truth (Hard to Love #2) by Emily Goodwin

I got this as an ARC… I just started this yesterday… I’m just hoping it ain’t no three-way and only a two way… plus I been dying to know what happened next when Hard Place ended like it did…. @authoremilygoodwin

Book Review:

*** There are spoilers throughout this review***

I had got this book as an ARC but didn’t get the chance to READ it before it came out due to me reading different other books at the time.

But……

Finally got around to reading this book. When I started, I was like she better not get into a three-way relationship because I don’t want her with Michael (I by far hate that name), but anyways; I was like how can she not see that Alex liked her more than his job really…

& soon her baby father came into the picture her feeling from him came back. I was saying to myself; girl Michael isn’t the ONE FOR YOU. You better not pick him over Alex. I didn’t like Mike’s mom. She seems kind of well no, she was horrible because she says mean things if the kid’s personality isn’t like her. I was waiting and see if Harper was going to mention she half – Mexican & that makes her twin daughters mix raced too.

Not only that Mike wasn’t for her because for one he didn’t care she a relationship with Alex he still try to get with her and make her move and date him.. whereas Alex didn’t do any of those things I was glad when she had that talk with Tessa so that she could see clearly. & her mom knew who was the right guy for her too. She (Harper) knew when it came to that necklace. But I was also glad when Max got locked up that problem should’ve been dealt with because he could’ve clearly hurt her (Harper) & even her kids if they were there with her. He was just a horrible creepy pervert person…
P.S. I don’t know why I keep thinking Tessa going to end up with Michael, her best friend (Harper) baby daddy 🤣 , but I hope not; I o want a story on both Mike and Tessa. One will Micheal find someone who loves him, and he loves her back, and feel the same way he felt for Harper he does for his new girl. Whereas I want Tessa to find love into a guy though she gay… I want the guy to come and change her mind about not dating men… I don’t know I am just curious as to who book 3 to this series going to be about...



 

48218762. sy475

Book Description:

The first time I met Alexander Harding, I yelled at him for taking my parking spot. Rich and powerful, I saw him as nothing more than my new coldhearted boss. I hated him once but now…now things aren’t that simple. There’s a man beneath the beast, and the more I get to know him, the more I fall in love with him.

Though just as I’m able to envision a future together, the past comes back to haunt us both.

Six years ago, my life changed forever when I found out I was pregnant. The last thing I expected was to see Michael Cooper again, but now he’s here and is ready to make up for lost time. He wants to be involved in his daughters’ life. My life. And it’s making me question everything.

I never thought it was possible to be in love with two men at the same time. One from my past, and one I want in my future. My heart is completely torn in two, with each half going in a different direction. I’d give them each half if I could.

But then I would be left with nothing.

Ryder (Scandal U #1) by R. Linda

Finally started my ARC well yesterday I started. Since I was reading a whole different book. & I can say I am not disappointed and I am curious about Cohen and Jayden who they’ll end up with….. especially Jake and who he’ll date… I’m just loving this book. & still, want to smack fire from Chace… I see… I can’t be too mad at Christina anymore 🤣 but I am still not feeling that Ryder looks like the guy on the phone since the guy looks 40 & Ryder like 18-20ish ….. but anyways #thisbookgoodthough.

Ryder by @rlindaauthor

Book Review:

***Spoilers; not that much but it’s a few***

I got this as an ARC, but at the time, I didn’t start it early before it was released on October 1st… I definitely wasn’t disappointed. That’s for sure. The author did her thing in this book!

In my mind, I think that it’s Cohen that may end up with Jack. Because I don’t see it being Jayden since I already know who Jayden is… I finally figured out where he came from when he mentioned prom & he taken Indie well was going to take her. But Cohen not so much. Since there are two books about both Jayden & Cohen, I am sooo curious as to who it might be, they’ll end up with.. plus I am waiting & waiting for Jack’s story… I got everyone’s story, but his…
Plus I can’t stand Chace omg… like he’s putting Bailey through so much I just want to run him over with a car or put peanut butter in his shoes like that girl did her boyfriend… he even harmed Christina if you think about it especially when you read the book on her… you can’t even hate her in this one because of her story and how she changed which I was glad for. I already can tell who’s going to end up with Jayden 9 out of 10. It’s Lennon because that boyfriend of hers is horrible. Lord knows I cannot stand a woman beater. I can’t wait for Jayden’s book to come. & Lennon end up with a better man! But other than that this book was so good … just like the actual scandalous main series… I am glad that Chace got what he deserved. He is a horrible person and deserved to get beat down; that beating to me wasn’t enough. But clearly, you could tell something was wrong with him. To him, he was acting out; to almost rape, among other things. He seriously was a problem plus it was good that Christina left… clearly, she wasn’t in the right mindset when it came to Chace and even Bailey who she hated for no reason…

Book Description:

Ryder and I finally have a fresh start. Attending the same university as the man I love makes it easy to leave all the high school drama behind.

Unfortunately, things don’t go as smoothly as I’d hoped.

I end up sharing a dorm room with my ex-best friend, Christina, and I’m forced to see my ex boyfriend’s face on a regular basis. They already ruined my last year of high school, and clearly they’re not done with me yet.

Between Christina’s temper tantrums, and Chace’s bad intentions hidden behind fake apologies, Ryder and I try to build a life together. But it’s not easy when past torments follow me wherever I go, slowly turning into a living nightmare.

Even though Ryder saved me once before, it’s different now. This isn’t high school. The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been, and this time I have so much more to lose.
