Zara Pierce has had a crush on Corey Jensen for years, but she’s never acted on it. When she sees him at their high school reunion, she decides to throw caution to the wind and finally make a move. The steamy encounter that follows makes one thing perfectly clear: she wants more of Corey.

Colton Jensen may have an identical twin, but he’s his own man. A self-proclaimed bachelor for life, Colt is set in what he wants and knows exactly who he is. Too bad Zara doesn’t. By the time Colton realizes his night with Zara was a case of mistaken identity, it’s too late to take back what’s happened between them.

Love Lessons (Shelfbrooke Academy #5) by Daphne James Huff

Book Review:

More like lessons learn…

*** There’s a couple of spoilers in this review; not that many but a few****

I’m glad I got around to reading this book though it took me a while. This book is pretty different, but it’s interesting to learn that these stories from this series are based on older books. That’s I never really read or want to read.

But I did like the Sonnets… & not only that I was glad that Rex friends Bronx and Reggie finally spoken up to Rex because clearly he was controlling ( more so wanted to control things) and he finally realize when Zara left for a family emergency he was an idiot to jump down her throat and was so worried about that prize that he’s dad never won. & speaking of the dad… I bet he felt some way too because Rex actually won something that he clearly didn’t win. Plus, he was the one to set it up (more so agree) to the group of three for the prize competition. But in the end, he got fool because regardless, Rex won even when he nor Zara was there. I think he would’ve been better off with his mom’s help than his dad. But his right to talk to his dad to get honest answers.

But I was glad in the end that he finally came to his senses and got his girl. & with Zara he parents just wanted her to learn to be on her own without her friends or her family being there. I understand; because it’s like you never want to go someplace or be somewhere alone. & you have actually to learn to do things on your own eventually. I was glad that she was learning too, and she and her friends Rosalie and Maria ended up with Bronx and Reggie.

Book Description:

But when rookie Jace Sutton shows up to work the same burglary investigation, she feels desire she hasn’t felt in years. 

Jace knows what he wants the minute Detective Day strolls onto his crime scene in heels and a pencil skirt tailored by God himself. He wants to thaw the legendary Ice Queen, and it only takes one hot, dirty night for Jace to realize he wants more. Much, much more. 

But more is the last thing Cat wants from any cop―especially a playboy rookie like Jace. As the burglary investigation heats up and he repeatedly puts himself in danger, Cat must ask herself if Jace will be as reckless with her heart as he is with his life. 

The Garden (Shelfbrooke Academy #4) by Amy Sparling, Shelfbrooke Academy

This book is actually good. I’ve been flying through these books. & this is one of them .. I’m 61% done…

Book Review:

The gardens • 🌿🌼🍁🍂

****Throwing spoilers throughout this review ****

This book was really good. It took me maybe three days; maybe two to finish it… it’s like the book twelfth Knight (meaning; I finish it really fast) but anyways. I was glad that Declan came to his senses and realized that he shouldn’t hide from Sophia, knowing that he actually liked her. Also; with her speaking up for herself when it came to her parents was also good. Being a trust fund kid; can have its perks and also be hard, especially if your parents are controlling your every move.

But with Sophia moving to New England; and going to boarding school actually helped her to become a better person. Not only that she realize those friends of hers in Malibu wasn’t really a real friend as Declan and Belle were to her. Because clearly everybody didn’t reach out to her once she left… Plus; those students in her school was wack though since neither of them wanted to get to know her; because of a creep like Chad who in the end ended up getting into trouble with selling pills…

Not only that she also helped her cousin with her anxiety if it wasn’t for Sophia, but I also don’t think Belle would’ve left her room the way she did when Sophia mentions the gardens. The gardens actually helped both Sophia and her cousin Bella and also good that she thought college was an option for her, especially since she didn’t care for it when she was in Malibu.

I did like how Sophia got Declan family their garden back by talking to her parents and using her trust fund is a good way to help her boyfriend. But at least her mom said she’ll get it back eventually. But I doubt Sophia cared lol.

Book Description:

Sophia Brass has it all—money, freedom, and a total life of luxury. When Sophia’s parents go abroad, she’s sent to the prestigious boarding school of Shelfbrooke Academy. Here she shares a dorm with her estranged cousin, Belle, whose extreme social anxiety hasn’t let her leave the room in three years. Thanks to her reputation as a stuck-up brat, Sophia isn’t really friends with anyone. Especially not Declan Moss, the popular senior who is too smart, too cute, and too annoying for his own good. 

The boarding school’s gardens become her refuge where she can do her school work in solace, away from the mocking and unfriendly students. One day she finds a hidden door in the gardens that she’s positive leads somewhere special. Somewhere she could truly hide out from everything. Maybe it could even get her cousin to finally leave her room. 

This hidden garden could fix everything. Only the door is locked. 

And she’s pretty sure the key belongs to Declan.

Sway (Shelfbrooke Academy #3) by M.F. Lorson, & Shelfbrooke Academy

When I first started this book awhile back. I was like this book is wack “boring”. But I went back and re-read it from where I left off… I’m on chapter 10… & so far it’s actually pretty good…

Book Review:

It was good 

*****SPOILERS; JUST A LITTLE BIT***** 

I liked this book pretty good read. It had me interested once I went back to re-reading, where I left off. Because at first, I thought this book; it was boring by how it started off until I got back into it… since I wanted to read this whole story…

But I am thinking I know Will from one of those books it could be from Tessa, but I am not sure… because I know her (Tessa), and Angelo had a problem with a rich prick… but anyways I didn’t like how Christopher was playing games; when it came to Anne I think he only wanted to date Lydia to make Anne jealous when in reality he didn’t even care for her as he did with Anne.. he kept being mean to her and not saying things to her.. but always get mad when it came to something about Will or another guy. Like Anne couldn’t catch a break…. like everything she did didn’t work…

I think he was kind of stupid too when he said that Anne changed. I am like come on now a lot of people change in the three years you’ve haven’t known them.. he even changed himself… but I felt like if he were that butt hurt by her it wouldn’t have talked about her to everybody that he knew & not only that he would’ve written her back too., I mean clearly, Anne was stupid for listening to Rachel smh when it came to breaking up with her public school boyfriend. I was like really if you like someone you could always make it work. 

But at least in the end “after they all got into trouble,” Christopher actually realize he shouldn’t run from his feelings for Anne and actually realiZe how she felt about him… I think he needed to hear what she told their Dean of the school because he was tripping throughout the book.

Everyone deserves a second chance, right? 

Three years ago, Anne Bennet broke it off with her summer love. At the time, her roommate’s advice to drop the dead weight and start boarding school without a boyfriend seemed like a good idea. But now, Christopher is attending Shelfbrooke Academy and Anne isn’t so sure she made the right choice. 

The more time she spends around Christopher, the clearer it becomes that the two belong together. Too bad Christopher wants nothing to do with the girl who broke his heart with little explanation and no apology. 

Can Anne convince Christopher to put the past behind him and give her another chance? Or is she destined to continue living with the consequences of letting others persuade her to go against her heart?

Tessa (Shelfbrooke Academy #2) by Kayla Tirrell

I didn’t know how this book going to turn out or if I will like it. But so far it sounds interesting… if it’s good as the first one I know I’ll like it… 

Book Review:

Okay read 

****Spoilers*** Just not many***

Okay! I can say this book was good! At first, I was like this book “not good” well more so doesn’t sound interesting at all. That I didn’t want to read it…. but actually glad, I did…

But what I am hoping for everyone hear about Alex being on a scholarship in one of those other books in this series because he was a horrible person especially to Tessa and Angelo…

I was trying to figure out what race Angelo was I was like is he Asian or Mexican…

But anyway, I like how both Tessa and Angelo were good for each other. That professor they had for Art I think his name is “Professor Crick” he knew what he was doing when he set up Tessa and Angelo together. Though he was mean half the time when it came to Tessa and did act like one of the Big Five’s when he clearly thought he didn’t…

Book Description:

The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Tessa never dreamed of going to Shelfbrooke Academy, but the summer before her senior year, a lawyer visits her family saying she’s a long-lost descendant of the D’Villes—one of the founding families of the school. Encouraged by her parents, she leaves everything she knows behind to finish her studies at the prestigious boarding school.

Once there, Tessa’s ties to the D’Villes give her access to all the perks Shelfbrooke has to offer—secret meetings, private rooms, hot guys.

But when Tessa and Angelo, the artistic student she can’t seem to stop thinking about, are paired for a school project, Tessa discovers not everyone shares the same love for the D’Ville name. Many would delight to see their fall from grace, while others are willing to do anything to climb to the top.

How far is Tessa willing to go to learn more about her past while trying to follow her heart?

Tessa is a modern retelling of the classic novel, Tess of the d’Ubervilles. It’s the second book in the Shelfbrooke Academyseries (a collection of retellings that can all be read as standalones) that promises to be a lot more fun than the original! 

Twelfth Knight (Shelfbrooke Academy #1) by Jessica Bucher

This book is way better than the last book… I just read….. 

Book Review:

 

Now I understand where the @12thKnight came from!!!!

 

***I laid out a bunch of spoilers throughout this review; so beware of the spoilers******

 
Okay so, this book was pretty good. I just glad I wasn’t disappointed and bored when I first started this book. & I kind of figured that one of them “Lily or Owen” would’ve found out about Violet pretending to be her twin brother Sebastian.

What I think Violet should’ve done was stop communicating with Lily; because she clearly made it worse, but didn’t really lie about who her brother was as a person. She just lied about who was behind the screen of the username @12thKnight! If it weren’t for Owen, neither of them would’ve known if Violet wouldn’t have told them. Heck, I was even waiting on her to tell her own twin brother, but clearly, they both were keeping secrets…

But I felt like Owen shouldn’t have been butting her for Violet lying heck he was stringing her along, and also hurting her feelings by how he was treating her when it came to his dad, and not only that how he treated her and always walk away from her when it came to Lily… like clearly he couldn’t get over her (Lily) but set and got big mad at Violet… I mean he clearly asked for her help & not only that both Lily and Owen brought it on themselves because for one Lily was the one to write that Anonymous post about herself breaking with Owen clearly she was hoping for a reaction, and she also wrote @12thKnight, because she clearly had a thing for Sebastian.

In my mind I felt like she used Violet too because she only hung out with Vil to get information on Sebastian because she wanted him… every time they hung out, she asked about Violet twin brother. So for her to hold that grudge for that long was ridiculous heck she lied to Owen too, but he got over it… she didn’t care to forgive Violet but still wanted her brother though. I was like girl you may as well forgive her… you clearly see she’s trying…

I was glad that she (Lily) finally came around after reading that letter that Violet written to her but also may as well say it was for Owen too.

Besides that, it sucked that Owen got hurt that I felt like I read a book that was similar to that, but with a different sport, I believe it was football. But anyway, that even hurt my heart when I read that part, and not only that you could feel and understand that Violet really cared about Owen and didn’t honestly want to hurt him… but you look at it they both hurt each other, but at least they came around and finally ended up dating, and Owen got to play Rugby 🏉 again…

P.S. when I was reading this book I was like hmm maybe “Rugby” not so bad of a sport them I research it and learn you can get hurt from it and also died from playing to as you do with American football 🏈… clearly you could tell it tough and hurtful sport from reading what happened to Owen… but at least his dad finally came around and also Lily mom came around too I guess neither of their parents didn’t have much to say about the two charity cases, who go to a rich school on a scholarship anymore.. 😒🙄… they were so annoying and rich pricks… not only that someone who’s lower class, middle class can be perfect to match for someone who may have more money than them (such as upper-class people -millionaire e, c) .but they can be way better because often time two rich people together can become a disaster and both sides can use each other for a better come up, especially when it comes to their children for example: “Owen and Lily”.. at least Lily got both of her and Owen out of that disasters relationship before they become their parents….

Misadventures with My Ex (Misadventures #21) by Shayla Black

Got the Misadventures with My Ex by Shayla Black today! I hope this book is good too📗

Book Review:

****There’s a possibility that its spoilers; in this review****

It’s interesting how the author wrote a book about Ella sister “Eryn“ & I read the story on Ella and Carson it was good enough.., and can’t wait to see how Eryn story goes… I hope the author Shayla Black writes a book about both Eryn and Ella sister Echo…. & her best friends Hayes… “***eyebrows raise up & down”****** Or fall for one of his friends or some other guy; while pinning over Hayes, but end up falling someone else “a girl can only hope•••****
But back to the story of Eryn and Wes …. one thing I don’t like is how long the kissing and stuff be… it be dragging and dragging…. like half of the one chapter 😂 almost fell asleep I’m like get to the sex’n part already smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ I rather read a short version of the kissing part that takes forever. I am like dang is he ever going to get the sex part finish so that he can tell her why he left… that’s what my concern is mostly about… but at least their second time wasn’t long winded…

Eryn got on my last nerve during chapter nine she was kind of whiny like Jheeze… she was also dumb because for one she believes West mother when West and even his own uncle Edward even said to her don’t believe her or whatever. And her dumb self going to fall for the trap and cry a freaking river. Knowing if they don’t end up married; she going to have regrets and crying; while wearing the wedding dress once again… 🙄 I’m like idiot West “in love with you” idiot the board meeting is nearing that’s why he was staying after so long! Her brain is like a 3… dumb… I was like if this bitch doesn’t marry him I’m a punch her through the phone… but in the end I was glad that she finally realizes she was an idiot and decided to marry Weston…, not only that also Edward coming to apologize and telling Eryn that it was him in the pictures and not West… it’s also good that he ended up sober, and hopefully, it stays that way too.

Btw: Dude why do I want Eryn and Ella little sister to end up with Weston brother “Flynn” ha… only wishful thinking more likely she be with Hayes if she has her own book. But that’s what I’m hoping in the next misadventures book that Shayla Black writes she writes the story with Echo and Hayes… they are the complete opposite I do wonder how that even works… & plus I love “Echo” name….

Misadventures in a Threesome by Elizabeth & Hayley

What came today “Misadventures in a Threesome by Elizabeth & Hayley @authorelizabethhayley can’t wait to read it •

*

*

Book Review:

••*** There are a few spoilers here and there could be a short one.”•••

But anyways; I would like to point out this the first time I ever read a threesome even a four or more some… that one guy one **** the girl at once and not both a once like butt = clique…. like it usually would… whereas the other books everything happened in the beginning or middle it happen towards the ending. But whatever…

I thought this book was actually good; I wasn’t disappointed, but I kept thinking that Mad was in his forties for some reason… I liked how they “Wild and Mad” finally came together to love Jaz and give into the relationship, and her family was okay with it. Often when you are in a relationship with more than one person; people will look at it funny and wondering why in the world would someone want a relationship with more than one person. Even though people do orgies and three-foursome it’s sort of different people you are actually in a relationship with two people and not just doing it for s*x…

But I liked this book I was between rating it a 4 or a 5 star…
