Making Up (Shacking Up #4) by Helena Hunting

About to start reading this ARC book… I already know it’s going to be good. & thinking that “Lexington” is his best friend since I know Amalie and Lexington are freak “freaks” because she likes those #sex toys 🤣 but then I realize his brother is Lex 🤣 @helenahunting

Book Review:

***Little bit of spoilers here and there***

 

I was given this ARC for an honest review as a blogger. So with that being said… I so enjoyed this book; I wasn’t disappointed at all or wanted to stop reading or got bored…I did felt bad for Griffin because for one he couldn’t catch a break with that crap with Imogen I hope that’s how you spell her name since I refuse to go back and see; since she’s not as important… so with that being said… I was glad that Cosy forgave him for that stupidity that happened with his ex-fiancée… I also figure that her sister didn’t mess around with Griffin… but I did crack up when learning it was her sister that took his money and credit card… she assume he didn’t know, but he did know about his money missing🤣 the only person I know is stupid when money is missing is one of my family members boyfriend…
But I was so rooting for both Cosy, and Griffin for one Cosy was hilarious and didn’t take any crap from one even Griffin… plus his brothers were hilarious when it came to him at his office… Cosy was so much better for him because for one Armstrong is a turd ugh and so his Imogen like how can you bang you, cousin fiancée, just because his brother bang your ex-fiancée that you cheated on at your wedding. For one, he didn’t deserve Amalie, but he definitely deserves Imogen … unlike She thinking she was going to get Griffin back with her dusty self…

Book Description:

A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Nine: The Tale of Kevin Clearwater (King #9) by T.M. Frazier

🤭 can’t wait to read this ☺️😅💃🏽……. read the preview yesterday was like I gotta have it & can’t wait to it come out….. ….. current read 📖N9ne: The Tale of Kevin Clearwater

Book Review:

****Plenty or added spoilers in this review” ****

I have got this book early than the release date; since I have gotten an advanced copy… I will say this book was awesome!!!!!

When I did start this book; I was like Lenny? Hold on will Kevin aka Nine ends up with a guy…. then I read it a little further, and she (Lenore) states something about her being a girl…… I’m like ooooh okay because I was wondering & waiting to figure out what happened to the girl who fell out the causeway or whatever they call that bridge….. & comes to find out her name was Lenore aka Lenny…

But in one chapter with her FAKE friend, she stated how she found out who Nine was then later down the line after they went to the zombie festival and he explains to her who he was “the guy she met; on the bridge”… that’s how she found out it was him… that had me at a loss because he found out who she was when Lenny got evicted. By seeing the photo of her with her parents….. in the end, I was glad that she forgave him and found out about Jared…

Especially when it came to the money taking and the house, car….. I never thought well no I kind of thought it could’ve been her best friend Yuli….. which in the end really sucked nobody that Lenny was around was her actual friends they all were FAKE and everybody that was in Nine camp was her REAL friends. I had to laugh at what Yuli said about Lenny meeting new people and don’t forget about her “Yuli”…. when I reality she was a horrible friend and didn’t like Lenny at all since she was behind every scheme that was happening and everything that was going bad for Lenny…

At first, I thought that the guy Tocci or whatever his name is I don’t care to remember since he not that important. Was going to kidnap Lenny. Because I was like this book is to good for her not to get kidnap but in the end, she did get kidnap by her wack ex-best friend… I was glad and laughed when Yuli got thrown over the bridge by Nine… I said yup karmas a straight BITCH isn’t it Yuli since you were behind everything when it came to Lenny and not Jared…. what crap pop…

“A Fine Imitation by Amber Brock” (Book comes out May 3, 2016)📗

“A Fine Imitation by Amber Brock” (Book comes out May 3, 2016)

 Description: 

Set in the glamorous 1920s, A Fine Imitation is an intoxicating debut that sweeps readers into a privileged Manhattan socialite’s restless life and the affair with a mysterious painter that upends her world, flashing back to her years at Vassar and the friendship that brought her to the brink of ruin. 
Vera Bellington has beauty, pedigree, and a penthouse at The Angelus–the most coveted address on Park Avenue. But behind the sparkling social whirl, Vera is living a life of quiet desperation. Her days are an unbroken loop of empty, champagne-soaked socializing, while her nights are silent and cold, spent waiting alone in her cavernous apartment for a husband who seldom comes home. 
Then Emil Hallan arrives at The Angelus to paint a mural above its glittering subterranean pool. The handsome French artist moves into the building, shrouds his work in secrecy, and piques Vera’s curiosity, especially when the painter keeps dodging questions about his past. Is he the man he claims to be? Even as she finds herself increasingly drawn to Hallan’s warmth and passion, Vera can’t suppress her suspicions. After all, she has plenty of secrets, too–and some of them involve art forgers like her bold, artistically talented former friend, Bea, who years ago, at Vassar, brought Vera to the brink of catastrophe and social exile. 
When the dangerous mysteries of Emil’s past are revealed, Vera faces an impossible choice–whether to cling to her familiar world of privilege and propriety or to risk her future with the enigmatic man who has taken her heart. A Fine Imitation explores what happens when we realize that the life we’ve always led is not the life we want to have.

Description: 

Drinking cost Helen her marriage and custody of her seven-year-old son, Ollie. Once an aspiring art photographer, she now makes ends meet taking portraits of school children and working for a caterer. Recovering from her addiction, she spends lonely evenings checking out profiles on an online dating site. Weekend visits with her son are awkward. He’s drifting away from her, fast.
When she meets Ava and Swift Havilland, the vulnerable Helen is instantly enchanted. Wealthy, connected philanthropists, they have their own charity devoted to rescuing dogs. Their home is filled with fabulous friends, edgy art, and dazzling parties.
Then Helen meets Elliott, a kind, quiet accountant who offers loyalty and love with none of her newfound friends’ fireworks. To Swift and Ava, he’s boring. But even worse than that, he’s unimpressed by them.
As Helen increasingly falls under the Havillands’ influence—running errands, doing random chores, questioning her relationship with Elliott—Ava and Swift hold out the most seductive gift: their influence and help to regain custody of her son. But the debt Helen owes them is about to come due.
Ollie witnesses an accident involving Swift, his grown son, and the daughter of the Havillands’ housekeeper. With her young son’s future in the balance, Helen must choose between the truth and the friends who have given her everything.

“The Opposite of Everyone”
   
Description: A fiercely independent divorce lawyer learns the power of family and connection when she receives a cryptic message from her estranged mother in this bittersweet, witty novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Someone Else’s Love Story and gods in Alabama—an emotionally resonant tale about the endurance of love and the power of stories to shape and transform our lives
Born in Alabama, Paula Vauss spent the first decade of her life on the road with her free-spirited young mother, Kai, an itinerant storyteller who blended Hindu mythology with southern oral tradition to reinvent their history as they roved. But everything, including Paula’s birth name, Kali Jai, changed when she told a story of her own—one that landed Kai in prison and Paula in foster care. With the two of them separated, each holding her own secrets, the intense bond they once shared was fractured.
These days, Paula has reincarnated herself as a tough-as-nails divorce attorney with a successful practice in Atlanta. While she hasn’t seen Kai in fifteen years, she’s still making payments on that karmic debt—until the day her last check is returned in the mail, along with a mystifying note: “I am going on a journey, Kali. I am going back to my beginning; death is not the end. You will be the end. We will meet again, and there will be new stories. You know how Karma works.” Then Kai’s most treasured secret literally lands on Paula’s doorstep, throwing her life into chaos and transforming her from only child to older sister. Desperate to find her mother before it’s too late, Paula sets off on a journey of discovery that will take her back to the past and into the deepest recesses of her heart. With the help of her ex-lover Birdwine, an intrepid and emotionally volatile private eye who still carries a torch for her, this brilliant woman, an expert at wrecking families, now has to figure out how to put one back together—her own.
