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!!!!

Life Goal #1: Forget about my best friend’s brother. (Because Zeke Elliott is a colossal cockwomble.)

The Running Back and the Prima Donna (The Ballerina Academy #2) by Anne-Marie Meyer, Maggie Dallen

Currently reading “The Running Back and the Prima Donna” 📖… 

Book Review:

Pretty good!!

Spoilers. Maybe just a few splash 💦 throughout this review, let’s see 👀…

So okay! I was curious as to what will happen and how it would happen when it came to both Bianca and Ryan. It was interesting to learn that they both had issues, and both ran from problems. Well, more so, Bianca lied about a lot of things. Though she had her reasons. I liked how Ryan taught her that she could be more than prima Donna. He showed her a new meaning of life. Not only that, but Bianca also showed Ryan that it’s okay to care and love someone who you want to be in a relationship with.

He had so much built-up hurt with his father that he was known to run away every time some got tough, more so when his father comes around. I do hope that he gets a chance to talk to his father and work things out with him. But not only that I was glad to read that Bianca finally told everyone the truth and not only that both Ryan and Bianca worked things out when it came to their relationship since Ryan had broken up with her since he didn’t want to hurt her because he felt like he was going to end up like his father a wash-up musician and what not!!!

But his mother shines some light on the situation to help him understand that both she and his father was in the wrong and he and Bianca needed to work things out with one another. & I was glad that they did!!!!

Besides that, I can’t wait to read Colleen and Eve, Story!!!

Book Description:

He thought he had her figured out. Turns out, he was wrong.

Bianca
Everyone at the ballet academy think they know me—the prima donna. The diva. The mean girl. They’re wrong.
What they don’t know is that I’m moments away from losing my meticulously planned out life. I’m not one to show weakness but my ankle has a different agenda. Adding Ryan to that equation only complicates things more and suddenly the only person who can save my future—and my secrets—is the one person I’m not sure I can trust.

Ryan
I’ve spend my life not caring. If it doesn’t involve Mom or my kid sister, Rosie, I don’t care. Period.
But there’s something about Bianca. Something about her desperate desire to hide the fact that she’s a pageant queen that I can’t help but involve myself in. Sure, it’s black mail—she does what I ask and I keep her secret—but I really think I can help her loosen up. After all, that’s my speciality.
Until things aren’t as simple anymore and suddenly, my feelings are deeper than I like. I come from a man who leaves, so why do I think I’d be different with Bianca? It’s better for me to stay away than for me to break her. And the last thing I want to do is break her.

His Secret Baby (McKnight Family Romance #2) by Anne-Marie Meyer, Lucy McConnell

Currently reading 📕…. 

Book Review:

***Spoilers. Possibly. Will be some throughout this review***

I was waiting for this book to come out to read this book. Because I was so curious when I was reading Jaxson and Lottie’s book when Chris popped up at the event, that Penny and her daughter Katie was at. I mean Penny panic and ran away so fast that it would’ve had you curious as to why she ran and what for.

I was glad I got the chance to read this book; to learn if she would’ve fixed things with her ex-boyfriend. Especially let him be around his daughter and get to know her. Not only that I was glad he stayed long enough to try to fix things with Penny. But what suck was how Penny kept the secret from Chris about who Katie real father was. He even figured out that Tag (their best friend) and Penny was lying about who Katie father was. Because for one, Tag couldn’t have any children.

But not only that, when Chris did find out about it, I think it was wrong of him to run away from the truth. Though, I did understand why he ran from the truth because he was upset. But it took both him and Penny to figure out that they needed to talk and figure things out for the better. Especially since they both wanted to be with each other and feelings were still there.

In the end, they ended up meeting at the airport trying to get to each other, which was good for all three of them because a child will always need their father.

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!!!!!


33350788. sy475

Book Description:

BEING BROOKE is a laugh-out-loud, witty, and sometimes highly inappropriate romantic comedy about being in love with your best friend. And how much that freaking sucks.

My name is Brooke Barker…
And I’m a freaking disaster.
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.
Not to mention I’m completely and utterly in love with Cain Elliott.
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.
My shut-up-and-put-on-Harry-Potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampons, kinda best friend.
And that’s all he can be, right?

The Quarterback and the Ballerina (The Ballerina Academy, #1) by Anne-Marie Meyer, Maggie Dallen

This book is really good. I would’ve finished this book (a.m -morning)… but had to make myself go to sleep. 😂🤣..

Book Review:

Really good book. I can tell this series will be that of football players and ballerinas.

Spoilers… splash throughout.

This book was good. It didn’t take me long to finish. One thing I’m trying to figure out what to say about this book lol—somehow, I can’t think of anything for some reason. Though, I am always writing a review for my blog!

But anyway, I would like to point out that Collette was kind of whiny and complain a lot about everything, especially when it came to her dancing. Everybody saw how great she was except herself. I was kind of glad Bianca even told her about herself. Also, when Bianca was mean at some point. You can tell that Collette dealt with body shame from everybody. And she had that stuck in her head so much she couldn’t see it until Ethan came along.

As I was reading this book, I was like, uhh. There a skinny, fat, medium, between dancers. No matter what size there are skinny and thick, big female dancers. I was glad that Collette saw that in the end. Especially her mother, who needed to see that too. Since she put that in her head and made her daughter have doubts. About her dancing, she had her thinking only skinny females care better.

Besides, I can’t wait to read Ryan and Bianca’s story. And learn about what is going on with her. I can tell she was dealing with a lot. Plus, I think she may have been sort of jealous of Collette too. Ryan is the one that is going to change Bianca I can tell… and she is the one to slow Ryan down also.

P.s. At least Ethan, stick it to his dad after what happened after his performance with Ryan band. Because his dad needed to hear what Ethan told him and show him that he didn’t want to be who his father wanted him to be. I think a lot of children growing up need to be themselves and stop trying to be what the parents want them to be. Especially if that’s not what they want. I think this book shows and proves that you can stick it to your parents. And follow your dreams. Ethan proved that to his dad because his dad needed to be knocked down a couple of inches. 

50723284. sy475

Book Description:

He thought he knew what he wanted.
Turns out, all he wanted was her.
Collette

I’d kill to be the kind of dancer my mom wants me to be, but it’s just not in the cards. I’m sick of dieting. I’ll never fit into the perfect ballerina mold and I’m tired of wishing that I could.

I’m over it. I’m done trying.

I’m perfectly content to dance alone in the dark while the rest of the school is sleeping.
Ethan

Coach says our football team needs discipline. That dancing alongside a bunch of prissy prima donnas is how we’ll learn our lesson.

Only problem?

I don’t have time for ballet. Not when I’m busting my butt to be the star quarterback, the dutiful son, and the perfect student…all so I can achieve my father’s dream.

When I meet Collette, I can’t help but take notice. She’s a vision of grace and beauty all wrapped up in snark and sass. And she helps me see that my own dreams aren’t so stupid after all.

I just wish she could see that in herself. But when I try to bring her out into the light, I can feel her slipping away. Her walls are built up so high, I fear they’ll never come down. I want to love her like she deserves—but that’s just the problem.

She doesn’t believe she deserves it.

For fans of Dumplin’, To all the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before, and The Kissing Booth, you’ll love this brand new series by two Amazon best selling authors!

Fall in love today

His Kissing Penalty by Lucy McConnell &, Anne-Marie Meyer

Currently reading “His Kissing Penalty” so far its good. I am so ready to read the next book to this series. 📖🏈🏉💦💦✅ 

Book Review:

Definitely was a good book 📖

**Spoilers; here and there••**

Before I get started on my review, I would like to say:

I hope that her Lottie best friend Suzie ends up with her brother Liam. I mean, that’s what I think going to happen. Since this is a McKnight Family series. It’s Charlotte, Penny, Mason, Liam. I’m trying to figure out if there were other siblings lol 😂 I don’t think so. But Katie (Penny) daughter, FATHER is who I am curious about… he might be someone famous too. I can’t wait for book two to come out in April. Plus the other books with the other two brothers…

Besides that, I already know Penny = Chris + Katie. Mason = Sadie + Grayson. & Liam = (I’m hoping it’s Suzie)… but who knows. But I can’t wait to read Penny story that comes out April 30th…. & the other books with the brothers…I know they are going to be just as good as Lottie & Jaxson’s story…

So anyway, it’s crazy that it took Jaxson to fake date Lottie for him to fall and understand his feelings for her to become real. Plus, Lottie finally got the guy she always wanted. I did understand how her family + plus Liam (who’s her brother) could feel so protective of her since she the youngest. But it can be annoying for your brother to overprotective.

What I realize was… well, no what I felt was. Liam shouldn’t have gotten so mad at Jaxson for fake dating his sister. When he knew who Jaxson was and trusted him not to hurt his sister. I was glad when he finally realizes that Jaxson’s feelings for Charlotte were REAL. & helped him get Charlotte back. Not only that, I was glad that Lottie forgave Jaxson though she was the one to break it off with him, which I understand.

Book Description:

The one guy I never wanted to see again…

Just moved in across the hall…

To make things worse, he doesn’t even remember the moment our lips touched and stars exploded.

Misunderstandings collide when the tabloids mistake me for his secret girlfriend. They love me—because I’m an all-American girl and he’s a football star. Plus, we sort of grew up together. Hometown romance sells.

We were made to be together, right?

Not according to my overprotective family. To them, my brother’s best friend has always been forbidden.

I thought I could handle a fake relationship with Jaxson.

I was wrong.

The Accidental Girlfriend by Emma Hart

I like when I can find a good book to read📖🤓 ……

Book Review:

*•Spoilers.. splash 💦 here and there*•
Half the time, I don’t realize I am reading Emma Hart’s books. Lol! I pick a book I’m interested in. & so far, when I do read her books, I am never disappointed, and I am waiting on her next book to come out.

But before I start on this review. I want a book with Mason’s sister Kristy and his best friend, Trevor. I think they got a thing for each other on the DL. I’m just saying!

Plus, I think what his (Mason) sister Kristy did was wrong but was a smart move. Because it did show his ex-girlfriend that he moved on even if their (Mason + Lauren) relationship started FAKE. They didn’t admit their feelings for each other until after the fact (when Claudia; told his mom about what happen) well more they did tell their best friends their feelings about one another.

But what made me laugh was Claudia thought for sure she was going to get Mason back but got fool because she didn’t do anything to affect Lauren and Mason’s relationship. She wanted something that wasn’t hers anymore. She threw him away for someone who had more than him. What she didn’t realize was that the grass wasn’t greener on the other side. But she also didn’t want Mason happy with anyone else; since like he (Mason) stared if she can’t have him anybody can’t) but ended up looking like a fool because Lauren still ended up with him and they both made each other happy. Plus, she got along with his family. When your family like a person you know you found somebody good! Not only that, his family and even his annoying neighbor hated Claudia 🤣….. I’m just glad that they finally got into a REAL relationship after Mason admitted his feelings for Lauren. & Lauren was finally admitting to him after he told her she does feel the same as he does…

44323999. sy475

Book Description:

Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won’t just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.

He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

Kiss Me Again (Kiss Me #3) by Emma Hart

Currently reading 📖 “Kiss Me Again” 

Book Review:

There’s a possibility there will be a few spoilers.
Okay, not much I could say. About this book even after I read it. This review may end up being short since I don’t have much to say about it.

Only thing I am going to say that… I am glad that both Ethan and Ava finally got together. Because in both her best friend’s books Reagan and Halley. She had feelings for her brother Leo’s best friend, Ethan. & turns out her brother Leo knew that they both had feelings for each other.

Not only did he lied about him having a two-bedroom apartment (which he stated he had a one-bedroom) that where I’m getting to… he lied about the two-bedroom apartment he had was a one-bedroom so that he could set up Ethan In Ava apartment. Not only that I don’t understand how Ethan couldn’t realize that Leo knew he liked her when he told him during the text messages between him and his best friend about stealing Ava socks. I guess he was in so much of a denial that he didn’t see that truth there.

Until Ava went on that date with Butler and Ethan, turn out to be so jealous that he finally admitted to his best friend Leo about his feeling for his (Leo) sister Ava… I was glad when that happened because I was tired of there games and that tug a war that they were having…

At least it turned out to be a happy ending!!!!

Btw: I’m wondering if Ava’s brother Leo going to have a book. Idk why I keep thinking he was going to end up with that girl who passed out at Ava’s job!!! & had to go to the hospital…

Book Description:

WANTED: ROOMMATE. Must be tidy, polite, and absolutely not my brother’s hot as sin best friend.

I have no idea why I said yes.
Maybe I’d had one too many wines. Maybe I’d done it accidentally. Maybe I’d been sleep-texting.

One thing I know for sure is this: I absolutely do not want Ethan Hawkins in my apartment, up in my business, taking over my space.
Yet he’s here. Moving his stuff into my spare bedroom. Sending a wave of panty-melting, musky man-scent my way every time he walks past me.

Here’s the thing.
We don’t get along–at all. We never have, and I don’t think we’re going to start now that we’re under one roof.

There’s also that little issue where I’m kinda, sorta, totally in love with him…

Uh-oh.

Finally started the second book to ‘‘tis now this series. “Kiss Me Tonight” … it’s actually pretty good. 90% better than the first actually… 

Book Review:

*spoilers**
I often come up with blank thoughts when I finish a book. Like at this moment, I am not sure if this review will be long because I can’t think of anything!

So with that being said…..

I really liked this book; it was way better than the first book with Reagen best friend Halley and her brother. This one was way more interesting. After reading the book with Halley, I definitely wanted to read Reagen’s story since the ending of book one had to curious about the picture the random guy (aka Noah)sent to Reagen.

It’s still cute how they met, not the picture 😂 but with him saving her in the fire and both of them not knowing that they met each other until he heard her name and she saw his tattoos at the hospital. It’s also good that her family actually liked Noah, that’s the best part when introducing someone to your family. They have to like them if they don’t they’ll be mean or not want that person around!!!!!

Book Description:

What do a wrong number text, a burning building, and a quirky florist have in common?
A hunky firefighter with an extra-large…hosepipe.

In hindsight, I never should have opened that text message. The last thing I needed first thing on a Monday was a picture of some stranger’s, um, eggplant, in my inbox.
I also should have replaced the batteries in my fire alarm, because my Friday night did not need to end with my apartment building going up in flames.
But it’s fine. It’s fine. Everything is fine.
I’m only lying in a hospital bed with more split ends than I’ve ever had, almost all my Earthly possessions have turned to ash, and apparently, they don’t serve wine to patients in this place.
But like I said, it’s fine.
Until he walks in.
The guy who saved my life. My hero. Noah Jacobs.
And the universe is amusing itself at my expense, because the dirty photo I woke up to on Monday?
It’s his.

The Kissing Tutor: A Standalone Sweet Romance (Sweet Water High #11) by Sally Henson

Currently reading “The Kissing Tutor” by Sally Henson (@sallyhensonwriter). But I wonder why “Betting on Mr. Popular by Yesenia Vargas (@yeseniavargas32) never came out. 🤔

Book Review:

best friends to lovers

***Dumped a bunch of spoilers all through this review*****

I didn’t realize this book had 36 chapters until I got tired of reading when I got closer to the end lol… like chapter 35/36. I was over it and was like dang this book must have been really good that I didn’t pay how many chapters this book had.

But enough with that, I actually enjoyed this book. It was actually a good book. I enjoyed it and wasn’t disappointed. But I did think that Tommy guy and London girl were evil people. Especially with calling her names because of a kiss. Plus, I felt that maybe London could’ve been jealous of Tommie. & the ‘guy’ Tommy I didn’t know what his deal was. PlusJames, I just thought he only showed Tommie’s attention when he found out how close Roan and Tommie had gotten with each other.

Because at first, he didn’t say anything to her and let the jokes about her having fish lips when she kissed him a prom. Well, more so, he kissed her by grabbing her behind and messing up her first kiss anyways. & made her the butt of the joke.

But you could tell that she had a lot of insecurities and doubts about herself and stayed comparing herself to her sister, in reality, told her that she (Maddie) was jealous of her (Tommie) it taken half of the book to show her that she was beautiful. I guess other guys also thought she was beautiful too. Even Roan though he always acted weird around her when she dressed up. But I could tell he was attracted to her.

But in the end, he had a hard time showing her what he felt for her because he kept pushing away from her. To denying anything was going to between them too; to him stop or wouldn’t look at her or hold hands with her in public. But always popped up when James was around 🤣 like I felt he was jealous when James did say or tough her. But like I said, James was only around for that one reason he seeing them kissing in the rain after batting cages (baseball)…

9 out of 10, I figure someone did show them kissing. I also was glad when Roan came to his senses because he really hurt Tommie.. & he finally proves to her at graduation by showing a slide show of them in public around everyone that they are together. I did want to see what Tommy and London had to say, but they were never mentioned again… since the party where London showed the fish lip kiss between James and Tommie at prom, during James’ party. That girl had a serious jealous problem.
