The Locker Room by Meghan Quinn

I really like this book. But I kind of started with “The Trade” first! But oh well! I been had this book but been pushing it back. But here I am currently reading “The Locker Room” & now I know the meaning behind this title 🤔

Book Review:

The Locker Room = what I the meaning behind the title.

Spoilers… here and there throughout this review**

Before I even get started on my review for this book. Like I want a book with Holt. Because I want to know who this girl is that he was pending after and brought to the locker room. Also, I wonder why Lindsey never got a book when both Dottie and Emory got one.

With that being said…. man, I can say I enjoyed this book. Like it kept my attention from being to end. I never got bored or anything like I usually do with long books. When I was reading this book., I was like yes Emory not getting on my nerves.. but then she got on my nerves.. lol I was like dang I spoke too soon.

Because I got to the part where she broke it off with Knox, I was so rooting for them. But I also knew it was too good to be true. I knew something was going to happen to break them up. I also understood where Emory was coming from when they broke up, but I felt bad for Knox because he was giving her his all. & all she did was push him away. But I understood her because she been in this six-year relationship, then moving on to something better, which was Knox.

But I still wanted to slap her because she broke up with him. Then they stayed in freaking Chicago and didn’t leave. I was like OMG girl y’all could’ve worked out. You done broke up with him for nothing. When you stayed in Chicago after college, he was drafted to the Chicago Bobcats. I was this heifer here. Then to top it off, she never let him know that she was still in Chicago and then say he was into Mia. I mean, I guess she suspected him of pinning after her without dating anyone even though both of them dated someone, which I agreed on, especially for Knox.

Since she broke it off with him, I could tell she messed with his head. Glad that Carson helped him get his head in the game both in college and when he got drafted. But what I was glad for was that both he (Knox and Emory) finally banged each other. Since they had a bet going on through junior year of college to hold out, but wait that what I wasn’t really glad on, I was REALLY glad for them finally getting back together after eight years of being apart. Heck, both their moms and friends were happy that they got together finally and even asked her to marry him & she ended up pregnant. I’m like THANK GOD.

Even though I read this series backward, 🤣 I started with the trade by mistake. I already knew that both he (Knox and Emory) was together. But kid? I can’t remember that or them being married, or I can’t remember Holt being in the book with Jason’s sister.

Book Description:

Have you heard the rumor around campus about the locker room?

If you haven’t, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. One rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.

Translation: baseball players are stupidly superstitious and believe the locker room has magical powers.

But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.

So when the girl I’ve fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it’s time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.

The only question is, will she accept?

Misadventures of a Biker by Scott Hildreth

Currently reading “Misadventures of a Biker” 🏍 …. even though I’m reading the ebook. I’m definitely getting the paperback, of course. To add to my misadventures collection. I’m still wondering what the next books will be.

Book Review:

Spoilers.. here and there

I couldn’t wait to read this book. Was counting down the days. Lol finally got to read it, though I would’ve been finishing this, so much was going on.

But I can say I wasn’t disappointed in this book at all. The author did a good job. Plus, I thought Devin was a nice guy, and he did get the stick out of Teddi’s ass. Because it was up there hard before he came around. Also, I liked how Katie was looking out for her.

But didn’t agree on telling each other about the guy they both were dating. I know some females do that even in fiction and real life. But that is not something you’ll want to do because 9/10 that friend would bang your man.

Besides that, I liked how Devin looked out for females and took up for them and got at the men that hurt both Katie and Teddi. What I will say before I mentioned anything else about Devin and Teddi is that I hope Katie and her guy get a book if there own. That would be interesting!!!!

Also, I wanted to slap Teddi at the end when she thought Devin was going to leave her. I was like the girl let the man talk dang. He didn’t get on his knee to ask for marriage because she was freaking out and assuming things. But at least, in the end, she accepted his proposal. Even though at first she believed he was going back to his MC.

Book Description

He was bad to the bone…

Devin “Bone” Wallace is fresh out of prison and under orders from his parole office to find employment or be re-incarcerated. He’s not exactly a “people person” and he’s got zero computer skills, but that doesn’t stop him from applying at one of the most prestigious real estate firms on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

High-end real estate broker Tedi Mack’s main focus is selling eight-figure beachfront mansions. In desperate need of an office receptionist, she interviews three bubblegum-chewing twenty-somethings and a stunningly handsome tattooed biker who wears his wallet on a chain. Tedi and her all-woman sales staff make a very quick decision: Devin the biker.

After Devin makes a recommendation about a listing that’s been a thorn in Tedi’s side, the property sells, and the celebration leads to an unexpected connection. The attraction is undeniable and hard to resist, but Tedi would be risking her social and professional status being with Devin, a tattooed biker saddled with debt and a surprising criminal past.

Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

Magnolia Lake by Emily Paige Skeen

I’m actually reading two books. This is the second book I started on. I’m almost finish it. I’ll go back to the first book I was reading after I’m done with this one. It’s been a pretty good book, even though I think this girl Cora is stupid when it comes to her best friend Landon.

Book Review:

Spoilers? There’s a possibility it’ll be a bunch splash here and there if not it’ll be less.

This book was even though I thought Cora was very stubborn and didn’t see the way Landon felt about her. When her family and friends knew how he felt. Even Rex knew that she had a thing for Landon, she didn’t figure it out until Prom night. Which I thought was a good thing, because I was like finally.

They got together after everything Landon proved and showed her how he felt. Not only that, what I came to realize before the tragedy happened to Cora when she got kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend Jeff was she was very oblivious to a lot of things, but she also was very gullible. She didn’t see or believe in a lot of things that others saw. I mean very naïve too. Just like when Landon told her she needed to go to the cops when he found out about the bruise on her own, Jeff left after he grabbed her without her permission.

She assumes that Jeff wasn’t going to do anything. Until he did. Which lead to her getting kidnapped at the mall. Was in Jeff’s family barn for ten days. I felt so bad for her because he had an obsession with that girl. I was like he needs to realize that when someone doesn’t love you, “let it go.”

Like he cheated on her with her best friend Lacey and then tried getting her back. On to apologizing, then since that didn’t work for him, he started to stalk her every move, which was by far scary as heck like jheeze Louise. I was glad when Landon came to her rescue (as always) since he cared for and loved her. But I became really sad when I learned he was paralyzed from the waist down. I was like nooooooo, not Landon crying 😢… I was rooting for them (he and Cora) and wanted him to play baseball.

But learning that they locked up Jeff and threw away the key made my dad. But what made my day was Landon being 20% able to walk again. With a lot of therapy. He even stood up during Cora’s birthday party at the end.

Even if he was fully paralyzed (though he wasn’t), I thought. Even though he would’ve been, it’s a lot he could do even if he were paralyzed from the waist down. I was like he could coach baseball, among other things.

But in the end, everything turns out good for both he and Cora. Even though they been through the worse but they came out of it, especially Cora.

Don’t Kiss the Heartbreaker (Billionaire Academy YA Romance Book 3) by Holly Stevenson

My current read. I’m 72 out of 100 on my reading challenge. 

Book Review:

Hmm 🤔? Will there be a lot of spoilers, maybe!

Soo. I liked that this one was just as good as the second book. I like a book that can keep my interest and have me curious as to what will happen next.

I could tell that Cade liked Tia, which she didn’t understand why would he pick her out of all the other girls and randomly single her out, which he explained to her his reason.

I understand her doubts about not giving in to him when he asks her to be his girlfriend. But I thought she was a fool to believe Chloe had to say to her about “why Cade asks her out,” smh! 🤦🏽‍♀️ She was just stupid to assume and believe what that horrible girl has to say. Because Chloe been a problem since book one. I mean Gah, she wants every guy that’s new or popular. They who don’t even want her. They go for girls who are the polar opposite of her and who’s way better.

Hence, Cade, he didn’t want to be alone with Chloe though I always thought he could’ve ignored her and told her no I am doing this with Tia ONLY! But I was glad that her best friend Lacey had her back through everything.

Not only that, she told her parents how she felt about the pageant and taking over her father’s technology business when all she wanted to be a career in art.

I’m glad Tia worked things out with Cade because she almost let Chloe out of everybody ruin her relationship.

53431084

Book Description:

Cade Carlisle is the hottest guy in school—and he’s also the biggest heartbreaker.

Everybody knows that.

So why did I just agree to go out with him?

Am I dreaming … or did the student body president and hottest guy in school just ask me out?

I’m seventy-five percent sure I’m dreaming. I mean … it had to be a dream, right? Cade Carlisle doesn’t just walk up to a nobody (aka, me) and ask them point blank if they want to go on a date.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m a leper. When Mom’s got me all dolled up with my hair and face done to beauty pageant perfection—I’m more than halfway decent. Some might even say pretty—but thus far, I haven’t bothered with any of that at Mr. Rainier Academy.

I’m just plain old Tia Radcliffe.

But I have a feeling that this date with Cade is about to change everything …

Don’t Kiss in Detention (Billionaire Academy YA Romance #2) by Erica Penrod

I think this one is better than the first book in this series. But still don’t understand the title for this book 🤷🏽‍♀️. 

Book Review:

Spoilers here and there.
Before I even get started on this review for this book. All I want to say I need a book with Crue and Emery because I want to know if he’s going to go for what he wants because he likes Emery, but he’s not pushing himself to get the girl. Hopefully, book four will be about them or something.

So with that being said… I liked this book more than I liked book one. Book one was okay. I also caught something in this book where they were in the ride with Adelle, and they spoke to each other. But in the book with Adelle, it wasn’t John she was on the date with it was Kevin… Adelle ended up with John at the dance after what happened between Kevin’s ex and the guy Terrance.

Also, I liked the fact that the Nile finally realize he had feelings for Jovi. Because he was mean to her when they first met, I mean everybody seems to be. I think due to her ways on the show. Because you’ll think that person is this certain way when you are watching them on reality tv every week.

I like that she showed Nile that wasn’t who she truly was on the show. She showed him the real her. & he also shows her that he did want to be with her, and he had the same feelings that she had for him.

He saw the real her when he saw how her parents acted towards her, especially her father because his dad was horrible. Since his father acted like his son was going to ruin his image due to the election. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️… it’s crazy how you have to act a certain way due to the job that your parents or parent have. But after the election, his dad finally came around. Which I think is a good thing kind of. Because I think his (Nile) father didn’t need to treat Nile the way he did.

Especially when it came to Jovi.

My High School Christmas Boyfriend (Boyfriend #1) by Kylie Key

I like reading a book that can keep my interest. I’m almost finish reading this book. I do wonder if there will be a third book. Since this the first book and I already read the second one! 

Book Review:

This was a great read interesting how they met. 🙃

Spoilers? Hmm maybe? Let’s see! There could be a lot of splashes 💦 here and there. 💦📖

I liked this book. I don’t think I would’ve ended up disappointed when I did start reading this book. Because for one, when I first started, the book caught my attention, and I didn’t want to stop reading because I wanted to know what will happen next.

Not only that, but I was also glad that Rylee found well more so Aiden randomly popped up at her house unexpectedly. Though neither of them knew that (Aiden was going to show up, though he brought his sister Krystal there for the Christmas lights and decorations) whereas Rylee spotted him outside of her street in front of her house.

But the only bad thing about when they saw each other again. Her aunt was horrible towards Aiden and his little sister, who has a disability. I wouldn’t say I liked it one bit. I like that Rylee put some sense into her aunt’s head because I think she needed to hear what Rylee thought. Plus, Rylee was ignoring her too. But what I did like was the apology that Rylee’s aunt gave Aiden about what she said about them both especially his sister. Because of how she was feeling when it came to her son that was talking from her, who also had a disability who didn’t live long and died at four months. That was just sad.

I did like that Rylee’s aunt invited Aiden and Krystal over to make Rylee Christmas better. Since technically she did ruin it and also her parents weren’t coming until later because of the weather. But she (Rylee aunt) invited Aiden’s parents and grandparents over, which was good. Rylee’s parents finally came, and they liked his mom’s candles, which was a good thing. Because I thought she could make a living off of selling candles.

It also sucked about his dad, but I also thought disabilities and health issues might run in his family. Which so sad, especially with his sister. But I thought she was adorable. 😍

While You Were Flirting by Liwen Y. Ho

Currently reading 📖 “while you were flirting” now I see why the title is called what it’s called. I also like this book better than the last book I read!!

Book Review:

Sooo good!!!

Spoilers.. here and there

What a surprise I didn’t know that Nolan was Max’s brother. Well, stepbrother, and been saying I can’t wait until Nolan gets his book. I see why Nolan’s book is going to be last since Max is his stepbrother. Probably more friends are coming in before him. Hence, Nolan and Seth are best friends, and Max and Liam are best friends. Interesting!!

With that being said… I liked this book I wasn’t disappointed at all. To know who the girl that Max chased in the book with Liam and Ava, which was Angel. It was interesting to know.

I was glad that he figures things out and stopped trying to be a player (well more so running from his feelings) Angel helped him with that and he helped Angel with her fears of driving. I think they worked well together. Not only did they work together. But even though they were opposites, they were meant to be.

Even with everything that they said to each other when it came to their feelings, you could tell both of them liked each other. Even Evan and Emma, the founders of the school, saw that in them, especially Emma. I was surprised how Seth never popped up in this book since Evan is his cousin. I’m trying to think was Ava the one that got adopted by them.

Was probably didn’t I can’t remember if it was this series or not!!! But I liked the fact that they both liked Angel and Max… and to also give Max a chance at the acting gig was great for him. I can’t wait until I read the next book to this series about Juliet and Jaxson. I know it’s about to be good and interesting!!!

Book Description:

Spoiler alert: Spending time with a player can mean only one of two things—getting your heart broken or falling in love.

Evangeline

Ever since my ex dumped me while I was recovering from a car accident, I’ve avoided both boys and driving like the plague. But I’m determined to finally face my fears. So when a guy approaches me with a deal—driving lessons in exchange for tutoring sessions—it sounds like the perfect solution.

Except that this guy is Max Parker, the school flirt.

Max

After my parents’ sudden divorce, playing the field seems like a safer bet than commitment. The idea of spending time with one girl never crosses my mind … until I meet Evangeline Evans. Not only because I need her help to pass precal, but also because I like who I am around her.

Who knew?

Now, I need to work up the nerve to show her the guy behind the reputation, so she’ll trust me enough to let me close.

The Edenvale Arts Academy series brings you the sweetness and innocence of young love amidst a backdrop of the performing arts. Combining creativity and romance, this YA series is perfect for fans of swoony kisses and sigh-worthy happy ever afters.

Don’t Kiss Your Lab Partner (Billionaire Academy YA Romance #1) by Lucy McConnell

This book is okay! I want to read something else, but I want to finish this book first! 

Book Review:

Spoilers… splash here and there••

Okay, so when I first started this book, I was like, hmm, 🤔 do I want to finish this book? Or not! I was tempted to start another book and come back to this one later, but I didn’t. I continue to read this one, and I glad I did.

I can’t say that this book is the best one yet that Lucy McConnell has written. I’ve read others by her. But I can say it was good and pretty interesting. It did keep my attention a little. Because I wanted to know what will happen between John and Adelle and what was Nicole was planning to do. Her attempt to ruin their app was stupid over a guy who didn’t even want Jeanie like ugh glad that Kevin went after her and hopefully got his girl back because Terrance didn’t deserve her.

I also understood what John did for Adelle so that she could win the TACS award. Not only that, in the end, but they also got to be together. Because Nicole finally got removed from John’s arms. She was acting like a Leach, but in reality, she wanted Terrance and only wanted to hurt Adelle. But truthfully, she didn’t hurt Adelle because John wanted her and only her (Adelle)…

I’ve dreamed of winning the TACS Award since I could type. But, the school board decided we needed to learn to work well with others and gave us partners for the computer programming project. Lucky me, I assigned with John Herrington III, whose big idea is a dating app for teens.

I’m so flunking.

I’m also crushing on him–hard.

Jumping into the social lives of our fellow students backfires when the mean girl gets dumped because of our app. She sets out to sabotage our project and ruin the Homecoming Dance for anyone we matched.

There’s only one way to salvage the project–but it will mean my first broken heart because I’ll lose either the guy I love or my life-long dream.

Catching Carly (Barley Cross #2) by Emma Hart

I died at the part about spraining her ankle by changing a lightbulb 🤣 … I’m just glad this book is more interesting than the first one. Because the first one was bleh!!! . 

Book Review:

Spoilers.. just a few.
I don’t know about Emma Hart’s books. But sometimes I get halfway over the book towards the middle. But I always want to finish one of her books that I am reading because I want to know what happens.

It’s like this book. Okay, it turns out WAY better than “Being Brooke” that book was just ugh! Never again. Whereas this book was pretty good. But I was over it towards the end.

I can say I wasn’t disappointed because this one “Catching Carly” turned out good when I was reading the one with Brooke and learned that Carly was going to have a book with Cain brother Zeke. I was like I have to read it. I’m glad I did and got to find out what happened between them and how they would end up with each other. I’m just glad his ex didn’t ruin anything for them.

Not only that, but I also can’t wait to read “The Upside to Being Single” soon. But I also wonder if Billie Brooke’s sister will end up with a book, or does she have one already? If not, I would like one, at least!!!!
