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.

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!!!!

Cruel Hearts (Knights of Templar Academy #2) by Sofia Daniel

After reading book one. I’ was like. I have to read book 2. Though I was going to wait but…..

Book Review:

Pretty good!!!!

•••Spoilers…. here and there•••

Wow, this crazy like all of this that went down. That Elizabeth girl will go to the end to get rid of Lilah. She hates her so much that she wants to kill her and to top that off, her mother is trying to kill her too.

It sucks that we, as readers have to wait until next year to get the third book to this series. Like REALLY? I’m a forget what is going on by the time the new year comes around.

Not only that, but I also hoped that the guys Orlando, Kendrick, and Maxwell is there for Delilah and not trying to use her or do bad things to her as they tried before. Besides that, I also hope that at least Maxwell pops up out of nowhere to check on Lilah like he usually does. Especially when it comes to her getting shot at…

Besides that, it’s not much I want to say when it comes to this book.

Spoilers. Splash here and there

Wow, this book wasn’t that bad as others I read but dang. That chick Elizabeth is just horrible, and the thing is… Maxwell, Kendrick, and Orlando. It is just a horrible like ugh!!!

Lilah knew all along that all three of the guys were gunning for her. But they got her when her ex Sammy and her step-father Billy popped up at that fashion thing! The crazy thing was I for sure thought it was Kendrick who was looking out for her. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ the whole time it wasn’t even Kendrick, it was Maxwell. Like OMG! He also had (temporary tattoos) so that they could get at her. I don’t understand why they hate Delilah so much. I can’t wait to figure out their reason.

Smh! I am going to read the next book though I’ll have to wait until 2021 to get the third book. Because this crazy. But at least, in the end, Maxwell got locked up too, especially with what all four of them done with Lilah!!!

The Stand-In Boyfriend (Boyfriend #5) by Christina Benjamin

Currently reading 📖 … 

Book Review:

Pretty good read; had me not wanting to stop reading!

***Spoilers; splash here and there***

This book was really good. I figure her best friend, Caroline, was trash and didn’t care about Beth. Even Parker didn’t like Caroline; he probably thought that something wasn’t right with her. He also didn’t like Jared for personal reasons, but he knew that Jared was trash.

I was glad when Beth figured out that both Caroline and Jared weren’t good people in her life. I mean Jared even showed proof of that after the accident that Beth was in…. he came to the hospital to talk smack to Parker, and stated how he was going to get Beth back. Like boy no, your garbage. I was like Beth woke up and heard everything that was said. And dismissed Jared from her life for good.

She even dismissed Caroline when Caroline blew her phone up with text messages. Beth figured things out when it came to Parker and his feelings and her own feelings. At first, she pushes him away, but after talking to her sister & then the accident where he saved her, she knew that Parker was meant for her. He may have been a “Stand-In” boyfriend, as everyone stated, but he was a perfect boyfriend for her.


49603935. sy475

Book Description:

Sometimes the person you’re meant to be with is standing right in front of you.

Parker Reed has been in love with Beth Bennett since he was four years old. She grew up next door to him, holding his hand and now his heart.

But with their senior year of high school winding down, Parker finds himself wondering how much longer he can hide his feelings for Beth.

Beth Bennett’s life is perfect. She’s convinced she has it all—the world’s best friend and the world’s best boyfriend. Now if only she could get the two to get along. With her spring break trip to Aspen just around the corner, Beth feels the pressure to spend time with both the guys in her life. But as usual, her older sister throws a wrench into Beth’s plans by hijacking her perfect spring break with a shotgun wedding.

As Beth scrambles to balance being a girlfriend, best friend and sister, her perfectly planned life spirals out of control. As always Parker is there to catch her. And when Beth’s boyfriend decides he’d rather go skiing than be her wedding date, Parker steps in to take his place. He decides the wedding is his big chance to tell Beth how he feels. What does he have to lose . . . besides the girl of his dreams?

Who will Beth choose? Her boyfriend, or the boy who’s never let her down?

At first I am like ehhh. 20 some chapters. I am glad that so far it’s good. I just hope by chapter 15, I don’t end up tired of reading like I normally do with certain books that good!!! 

Book Review:

Holiday Boyfriend

Spoiler.. thrown here and there.

Wow, I didn’t know that this book was going to end like that. Wow! I was confused!

But I can say this; this book wasn’t a disappointment. It was a good read. I liked the story!

I thought it was cute, but also believed that Emma was kind of mean towards Will didn’t give him enough credit, when it came to his feelings and when it came to Liz. She was always quick to assume things instead of thinking things through and asking questions.

I was glad she realizes her feelings for Will instead of running away from him always. She knows that he didn’t fool around or lost his V-Card to Liz when she heard Will blast, Liz, out at the rooftop Christmas party. I was glad she heard it because it shows her who Will truly was and that he didn’t change.

Also, she knew she was wrong to run away from issues, especially when it came to her father and standing Will up at the dance.

I was also glad she had a talk with her father and realize he actually still loved her and wanted her around. Even her mother knew everything, and Emma assumes her mother was still hurting. But the talk with her father made her understand a lot of things and even got her to like Tara, which turn out to be good. She got a brother out of the deal, which she learned to love and become close too not only that she had another brother on the way.

A lot of things she had to thank Will for because he helped her through a lot when it came to her family and even Will. & she also helps Will have a good family Christmas and even Colin; her step-brother ended up with the best Christmas ever.

Dating: For the Block: Eastridge Heights Basketball Players (Book 3) by Stephanie Street

Just started reading 📖 this book yesterday. I think I figure out what the title of this book means now. 

Book Review:

Spoilers… hmm.. 🤔 there’s a lot!
So okay! It took me a while to get back to this series. Not even sure why I never finish this series. I’ll say I am glad I got around to reading this book.

I was like, ehh! Mm. I wonder how this one is going to be. Not once was I disappointed. I will say this Mia did judge Grayson by what she heard in the bathroom. Not only that, it made him look bad because she caught him kissing the girl (lord knows I can’t remember her name🤣 starts with a K, I think 🤔) but anyway she’s not essential.

Another thing was how Mia acted like her mom didn’t care about her, and she became a little bitter. When I was like uhh girl, you had a choice to move with your mom to Alaska. She didn’t even abandon her daughter for one. She only up and decided to move based on her husband, Mark, job. That what Mia didn’t understand. Especially when they are used to living in a certain area!!!

I was glad when Mia came around and talked to her mom about it. Not only that, but both Mia and Grayson was also mean for lying to their parents about them dating so that they could break up something that good (their parents dating; each other).

It only took them later on to realize what a mistake they made, especially Grayson though Mia felt like her father will abandon her too like she assumes her mom did.

But at least everyone came around and worked things out. Grayson’s mom Michelle with talking to him again. To her dating Dennis and getting married. & not only that, Grayson and Mia are getting together finally after all the judgment she put that poor boy through at least it works out in the end.

She (Mia) also got a little brother out of the deal. Her mom and her husband welcome a little boy. & for Grayson to finally talk to his (REAL) father, which I was glad too, though I felt his hesitation about seeing and meeting his dad since his father was always not there in his life and was dead beat. Funny how his father wanted to talk to him when he decided to get married, that was interesting.

Plus, at least Grayson got a (STEP-father) figure in his life always that was his basketball coach. Who fell in love with his mom!!! Though his girlfriend became his sister, which was hilarious, especially when she kept bringing it up at the end!!

Those were my options?

If the rumors were true, Grayson Levitt was the last guy on the planet I’d ever date, let alone anything else.

When I got caught in his ridiculous plans to keep ‘anything else’ from happening, I didn’t know if I should kiss him or punch him in the throat.

What a mess!

Grayson Levitt was charming. Everyone loved him. Everyone but Mia. It wouldn’t matter except they had to work together to keep the unthinkable from happening. Somehow he had to prove he wasn’t the guy she thought. And if she ended up falling for him? All the better.

Can Grayson and Mia put their differences aside to put their plan into action? And were they even doing the right thing?

Wait I don’t think I need to be saying sausage or package 🤔…. .

my current read “The Trade by @authormeghanquinn

.

.

.

I’m really liking this book 📖 👀… plus I’m a fan of sports romance 🤷🏽‍♀️🤪… 

Book Review:

Pretty good read, can’t lie. Maybe the trade was good for him, yeah?? I mean, the book title clearly says it “The Trade.”

****Spoilers? Hmm, 🤔 there’s a possibility of a few being splash 💦 here and there in this review📖*****

Okay, so I had this book on my TBR list to read I’m glad I got to read it. Also, it’s another book I think it was “The Line Up” since I saw it floating around last year!

But anyway, I liked this book. The sad thing was all that crap Cory was going through I felt so bad for him. Especially when he got sick and on top of all the crap the media and the Rebel fans put him through!

I didn’t blame him on the break up with him and Natalie. Since he wanted a BREAK, whereas she told him they might as well BREAK UP for Good! She did that because she was upset, which I understood because he asked her for a break!

Though, he told her to stay in the hotel room. I mean, she didn’t listen. & all that crap that happened made him snap and said things that he didn’t mean. It took them seven months to get back together. Which I think was well needed, because it’s a lot of things that Cory needed to work out with himself.

I think Natalie didn’t understand, even when he came to her and ask for forgiveness at her brother Jason’s fundraiser. She pretended like she didn’t understand or didn’t hear him. But she did since she responded to him. & ended up getting him upset and walking away again. Only for her dumb self realize what JUST happened once he walked away when the guy Nicholas walked up to them.

I kind of thought Natalie didn’t understand what Cory went through; he was losing hair and everything. It took him to faint in the locker room to text her brother with worry about what was going on with Cory. For her to come around, which I was glad for. Since I could tell, she cared about him though she was in denial.

Though; that’s what I thought he was doing holding his feelings in when he saw her at the dugout. But I was glad in the end that they worked things out, and he finally got those horrible fans to approve by stating.

“They can take the bat I just used to hit this team to victory and shove it right up their asses.”

It took him to say that and putting up his middle fingers to get approval all smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ though some still can be mean to him.

Also, I cracked up when he learned the reason behind the name boss. They told him a different story; up until they told him about getting Natalie back. The whole time it was about how BIG he was packing.

Besides that, I can’t wait to read Jason and Dottie’s story because lord, he had me cracking up because he’s ridiculous. & the crazy thing is that was the first book I put on my TBR list for this series that I wanted to READ but forgot!!!!

Book Description:

Can you pinpoint a time in your life where you realized you are completely and utterly screwed?

I can. I got the dreaded phone call, the one every baseball player hopes and prays never comes.

I was traded. Yeah, that phone call.

Traded from my long time team of over ten years. And not just to any team, but my childhood rivals; the Chicago Rebels.

Completely and utterly screwed, right? Wrong. The trade was the least of my concerns.

I met a girl. Natalie. Man, she’s perfect.

I swore I would never get involved with anyone during the season. Too complicated. But can you believe I have zero restraint when it comes to this girl? I couldn’t get her out of my head and the more I talked to her, the more I realized I needed her in my life.

So what’s the problem? Why am I screwed? Because, Natalie, the girl I can’t stop crushing on, yeah… she’s married.

At least, that’s what I was told…

The Enemy Hypothesis (Brazos High Romance #2) by Amy Sparling

I have actually been waiting for this book to come out. Glad I got a chance to read it. But what I am glad for, is that this book isn’t BORING. Like the last book that I just finished today. That had my brain 🧠 popping and flatline. I am almost finished with “The Enemy Hypothesis by @writeamysparling … Currently reading 📖…. “The Square Root of Falling”… – after reading a couple chapters I understand the title of the book! #competition ! Bleh… 

Book Review:

Xx, this book was pretty awesome, short but good!!!!!

Spoilers… not really. But maybe a few**

Okay, so I’ve been waiting on this book to come out. I forgot who Abby was since the author. Took a while to put this book out., I forgot how book one went lmao.

But with book two, I wasn’t disappointed at all. Especially when coming from a book that was so boring made my head hurt.

With this book, I thought Abby was mean to Mark. Though I understood why she acted the way she acted. She wasn’t sure if he was playing a joke on her when he kept asking her out. They both were competing against each other. In the competition. So that’s understandable. But you could tell that Mark didn’t want to win anymore, he wanted Abby to win more than he did.

He showed proof when he won when he told the people that he wanted to give his win to Abby. Before Abby learned what he did, I mean she was BIG MAD I doubt she would’ve congratulated him if he didn’t decide on Abby needed the win more than him. Clearly, she hated him for that win, but they worked things out once she realizes he wasn’t a jerk. And picked the Red Jeep that Abby wanted so that he could give it to her.

I thought it was cute of him to do that for him. Especially since he liked her and vise versa.

Besides, I can’t wait until the next book comes out. I am going to be looking out for “The Theory of the Boy Next Door,”.. especially learning who the girl and boy might be. I can’t even put my finger on who it might be at all.

Being Brooke (Barley Cross #1) by Emma Hart

I started this book back in January. But never went back to finish it. Finally, I decided to go ahead and retry reading it. Since when I first start it, it was kind of dry. So far it’s keeping my interests. 

Book Review:

Ehhh it was ok

**Spoilers. I don’t know if it will be*** but maybe a few••**

I’m going to say this; this review may be short because I don’t have much to say. If it ends up longer, then I have something to say.

But I am going to say this; this book was sooo boring. I started it back in January and decided to finish it this month, ugh! But it was still not that interesting.

& the thing is I’ve read other books by Emma Hart, that wasn’t like this book, this book I had to skip a couple of pages when I got to chapter twenty. Because I didn’t care… I just wanted to finish it… & I did. At least I know what happened in the end.

Not only that, I thought Brooke was a little annoying because she kept holding on to her feelings and not saying anything; it took her way to long. Even after her best friend Cain kissed her, she still was in denial about her feelings and even his. Like girl, it was a REASON behind that kiss. Even Cain brothers told her that Cain was always in love with her.

Heck, Cain ex-girlfriend Nina knew that something was there with both Brooke and Cain. End the end; I was glad that they both figured things out and started dating. & Brooke is figuring out what she wanted out of her life even though she was a disaster of a girl.

P.S., so I want to read book two with Carly and Zeke. What I will say is I pray and hope that it is shorter if not shorter but way better and more interesting than this one with Brooke. I am hoping that book two is a banger. Because I want to read that book, same way I wanted to read this one, but UGH!!!!!

No, seriously. I’m a college drop-out working a dead-end job, my best friend Carly’s dog gets more action than I do, and I have more bad dates in my diary than there are movie remakes.

The problem? He’s in a relationship. With a girl who’s so plastic she makes Barbie cry herself to sleep with jealousy.
The second problem? He’s my best friend.
