I read pretty much every day I squeeze it in between doing homework, cleaning and sorting the things at home.

Book Review:

……Spoilers….

Miss Match (No Match for Love #1) was actually a good book. I was rooting for Luke to get his girl, and finally, he did. Took Brooke, long enough to actually give into her feelings and actually go for what she wants, and in the beginning, I figured that her future ex-husband (may as well to say this) was cheating on Brooke it was just that feeling that I had. Glad, that Luke, and Brooke got together in the end, and Andi, was a good person to use to win Brooke, I was like yasss, I cannot wait until I read Andi story, I am hoping that Luke will help her win her best friend brother.

Book Description:

Billionaire CEO Luke Ryder doesn’t want to hire his best friend, Brooke, as his matchmaker. Not when he’s been in love with her for eight years. Too bad she doesn’t see him as relationship material and is engaged to another man. If the matchmaking company she works for closes, Brooke is out of a job, and Luke is out a best friend. There will be nothing stopping her from moving to Italy with her fiancé. And Luke isn’t about to let that happen.

Brooke’s dream career may be crumbling, and she will do anything to keep Toujour in the black. Even recruit Luke, America’s favorite bachelor, as her next client. Surely his perfect smile and swollen bank account will send clients swarming to their doors. But when matching up Luke works a little too well, Brooke wonders if she’s with the right man. Maybe she should finally forget Luke’s playboy image and admit he’s changed. All Brooke has to decide is if she’s willing to risk her heart.

Book Review:

Cartel 7: Spoilers…. ALERT ⚠

This book was good, I couldn’t wait to read this book, especially when this book is going to be about the children, I do wonder if the girl Ash and CJ will hook up, in my mind. I think that is what will happen, especially when Mia wants the girl to get close to him. And lordy Mo act more like Mecca than Monroe. Make you wonder, if he is really Mecca child, he’s a while card and going to have CJ just like him.

But to me CJ been through hell and back compare to Mo, from getting put in the hospital to child abuse, to losing family, all that other stuff. Also, I can’t wait for the next book, It sucks that Carter died but some reason I am not sad like everyone else, I guess because he didn’t kill by the gun, only a heart attack. It’s weird no one knew how his heart was after him being shot and he having pains. When he fell out at his son fight, I knew he had a heart attack before I even gotten to the part where it was mentioned. But it’s good that he saw his son for the last time before he died.

Thugs Cry 3: Respect My Gangsta by Ca$h

Bruh they💀 messed up when they let Rah live. And it’s funny too how Nard and his people think they did something. When CJ killed himself they didn’t pull no trigger CJ went out like a G, and he protected his best friend. I cannot wait until RAHEEM do justice to Nard and his people. I still think Nard brother is the one who’s going to get killed first. I cannot wait too. Hopefully, Kaneisha doesn’t get killed if she can help Rah get to Nard that’ll make my day. Her dad can get it too since he is one of the reasons why Rah was kidnapped and CJ being killed.

Book Review:

Thugs Cry 3

Few Spoilers…..

Wow, this ending, had me disappointed. Like really? But man I am glad Nard got what he deserved. He went out like a punk in my opinion. Because he didn’t save his man’s like CJ did for Rah, or murder himself. But when Kenisha I wanted her to live but then she gave up her son for Nard like girl ain’t that much love in the world could make me give up my child for no dude. Plus, that heifer Rah trusted I don’t like her, at all she set him up, I knew the ending wasn’t going to be good for them. Plus, what Nard and his people did to Legend, had me tight I liked that boy, him a Premo. Also, the only thing I dislike was when they killed that little five-year-old boy.

 

Book Description35502793

Money, power, respect and the battle for one woman’s love pitted two notorious drug dealers against each other in a bloody battle that left behind many casualties.
Young NARD has finally brought down CJ, Newark, New Jersey’s most powerful and most dynamic crack King. But the baby-faced drug kingpin has made one monumental mistake—he left RAHEEM dying, but with an ounce of life still in him.
If Rah survives, there’s going to be a war in the streets unlike anything the decrepit city has ever witnessed, as he seeks to avenge the death of a friend whom he loved like a brother.
Both men are thinkers, and they both have murderous goons at their disposal. But only one side can be victorious.
Which side will it be? Will Nard’s ego remain in check as his stature explodes to astronomical heights in the hood? If Raheem lives, will he prove that his gangsta is as cold as his mind is sharp? Nothing is for certain but death. But who’s death will it be? This time when THUGS CRY, they’ll cry more than tears—they’ll cry blood. Lots of it!

Book Review:

>> SPOILERS <<<
The truck is a B.I.T.C.H, lol! When he saw The Hound, he said: “You know what?” I hope his little snitch *** get murked. And I am glad he got what he deserved too. Because he set Cutty up and end up in the cell with Cutty, ha, KARMA’s is a mother I tell you. Plus the only real dudes was in this book to me was Cutty, Mel, Rio, Prince, Jay, and the kid that Mel hung out with that left. It was sad that they all died in the end except Cutty, but still, Rio went out like the G that he was. Plus, it’s crazy how people underestimated Rio, but what brought his demon Side out was the situations that has to happen to Trinity or if someone says something about her. He truly love that girl, I felt he should’ve killed himself, I mean love will do that to a person. I am just glad everyone found out who Truck really was. Also, I want a book about The Hound and Kane. I love them lol they are awesome.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Reading this when 📖 I’m supposed to be doing the math.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. The book is interesting but not as good as the fill-in boyfriend. But never was disappointed by her books so far.

Description:

Money can’t buy a good first impression.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom’s porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence—he’s tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But just when Xander’s loyalty and attentiveness are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?

Book Review:

The Distance Between Us is actually a good book Caymen and Xander (by the way I hate that name) Alex was better to fit in my own opinion. But the storyline was interesting, I already knew they both were going to end up with each other. Also, I understand why Caymen was upset with her mother for keeping secrets about her family. They were out there struggling whereas her mom (well there family was actually rich). The Robert guy was actually a perk I didn’t understand his hate for Caymen, he probably wasn’t even Xander friend only was using him for who he was. I cannot wait to read the other books by Kasie West. The books I read by her so far was very good.

By Your Side by Kasie West

About to start reading 📖 By Your Side by Kasie West! I’m supposed to be doing homework. But I’m over this math class already. Been having stressful semester.

So I will put my face into these books I’ve bought.

22195278_1342636349195932_8171553723218687057_n

Book Description:

An irresistible story from Kasie West that explores the timeless question What do you do when you fall for the person you least expect?

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead, it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn at first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?

Book Review:

Spoilers….

This book was actually good, I wasn’t disappointed, but it wasn’t as good as her other book I owned and read “Fill in boyfriend.” But I did like Autumn and Dax story, I was rooting for them too, and I like how her friends accepted him. And Dallin was wrong for treating her the way he did. Plus I believe she should’ve told her friends about her anxiety attacks, I know that I have panic disorder there’s no way I would do something that I know will lead to a panic attack. I was glad when they put the pillow over her, and she screamed at them and finally told them about her anxiety attacks.

When it came to talking to Dax, I believe it was easier for her to talk to him beside her friends, it can be like that. Because it’s like that with me, I cannot talk to my family or best friend about anything including my panic attacks, but my guy friend I can. With Dax and Autumn, I believe he did calm her as to where her friends aren’t calm and have her doing things she knew she shouldn’t be doing.

Description:

A “brilliant, astonishing modern love story”* and an acclaimed literary debut… A young Cuban woman passes her nights dancing in a seedy Florida strip club; a Russian orphan loses everything, then builds a new and prosperous life for himself in New York; a woman struggles to maintain her dignity and hope after a life-changing accident—these are the three members of the troika whose story is told in this dazzling literary debut.

Any and Gia plan would work when Nate came over. I couldn’t stand the girl Jule she was not Gia friend, and her own friends were not her friends either. Smh.

I really liked this story not sure I got the part about Bradley in the description I assume he was going to tell her friends, but it was Jules wack self I believe that was jealous of Gia. And wanted what Gia had and even though Claire and Lancy were mad at her if they were her REAL friends, they would’ve forgiven her for the lie, she was telling. Plus it’s like the female turn a blind eye towards what the Jules girl was doing and ignored everything that Gia had done smh. I was glad when she mad new friends who actually cared.

The problem is that days after prom, she can’t stop thinking about her fill-in boyfriend. But can Gia turn her fake boyfriend into a real one without exposing her lie and possibly destroying her friendships and her newfound relationship?

Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Kasie West’s talent shines in this tale of one girl’s unexpected quest to find love…and possibly herself.
