Book Review:

Cole & Ana 😱🍓 finally had those babies I wanted them to have Lol 😝🖤

Loved it…

This story was good though it took me awhile to finish and I felt like it was never going to end lol! I guess I couldn’t really finish it off due to I’m in college and gotta work around my reading and homework/assignment and reading the books for my classes. Lol.

Spoilers…

I love Cole and Ana story at first I didn’t know who the heck was Diana at first when I read the first book. But realize it was actually Ana but she didn’t go by her real name. Anyways I was glad in the end that Steven finally went to jail for his crimes with stalking Cole and Ana among murder etc. he deserves that jail time. I still didn’t understand why Cole didn’t tell Ana about what was going on though I do understand that he was trying to protect her too. I still thought he should’ve told Ana not only Ana but his brother too about Steven and what was going on. I love the ending where they end up married with kids (twins at that) so cute!!!!

😂😂 why did she mention “ #supernatural” though this😂💀 is hilarious, I like supernatural too!!! She said “Cole and His younger brother. the last name is Winchester. Maybe that’s why he’s so guarded. He and Luke secretly fight demonic crime at night.” 😂 this a good one too

Book Description:

**For a LIMITED time, Bad Things (Book 1) is included along with Battle ScarsBad Things is in front of Battle Scars so the books can be read in order. Please use the table of contents to navigate to Battle Scars**

They say time heals all wounds, but sometimes it does just the opposite. The pain festers, seeping deep into your heart. By the time you’ve realized what happened, it’s too late and you’re left with a scar that will never go away.

I’ve spent the last year hiding my scars, running from the man who gave them to me. What I thought was love turned out to be a nightmare that won’t end, even though I forced myself awake. Love isn’t real. Love only leads to heartache.

And then I met him, the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. Throw in some sexy confidence and a panty-melting grin, and you have the recipe for a broken heart. Only, my heart is becoming full again, being put back together piece by piece the more time we spend together.

I’ve been down this road before and know it’ll end in two ways: we’ll ride off in the sunset together and live happily ever after, or we’ll crash and burn so hard neither will survive the wreckage.

I want to be hopeful, but history is damned to repeat itself. And I have the scars to prove it

Book Review: 

Bad Things #3 (Cole ♥️ Ana

I knew Cole and Ana (Diana) story was going to be goo. The author did a good job with this story too. I was not disappointed, I will say that her book about Cole brother was way juicer because it had a lot of drama. This one didn’t have a lot of drama. I know a lot of people like Cole who cannot see other people be successful because they assume they cannot have that.

Spoilers…

See the ending I knew was going to be mad juicy ohhhhhh I cannot wait until I see what will happen after Cole tell Steven who he is and vise versa. Poor Cole, he cannot catch a break when it comes to love people always trying to ruin everything for him. Plus getting abuse and hurt by someone you loves will do damage to a person. But he and Ana have been damaged. I like how they came to together and loved one another. But hopefully in book 4 ( I mean 2) he finally tells Ana he wants her because all this waiting is annoying maybe since he knows something finna go down with her ex-boyfriend I mean husband he’ll finally Amit’s to it. Because his brother Luke and his wife Lexi wants him too even, Ana does.

Btw: I want Ana to get pregnant already🤰 with Cole baby. The👶🏼🍼 wait is torture lol!

Book Description:

They say it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. I think that’s total bullshit. No one wants to be a loser in the Game of Love. Trust me, I know. With a lying fiancee and a canceled wedding, I’ve lost big time.

And that loss turned me bitter, so hell-bent on vengeance that I almost let it destroy everything. Determined never to go down that dark path again, I’ve sworn off romance. Work became my priority, my safe place, the one constant in my life that wouldn’t tempt me.

Until I took on a project I normally wouldn’t, and it introduced me to someone I never would have talked to before. No matter how hard I try, my professionalism slips away the more we work together, and I know it’s a disaster in the making.

Bad things happen when I open my guarded heart. But when I look at her, bad things are all I want to do.

Book Review:

Twice Burned but with a happy ending 🌺🥀💕😄

>>> SPOILERS INSIDE OF THIS REVIEW OF TWICE BURNED BY AUTHOR EMILY GOODWIN<<<<

I swear Lucas and Alexis are one irritating couple I swear lol. UGH! Like you have Alexis, who was always whining and believing everything that Luke, brother Cole has told her, which always end up as an LIE. And she knows he lied before and she still believes him. And stay flipping crying, and as I was reading this book, I am like GIRRRRRLLLL if you don’t ask Luke and stop believe his damn brother. I know this a book, but ol’ girl was annoying I swear lol. ‘

And there’s Luke, who always ends up leaving Lexi and not telling her he’s leaving he did it not once, but twice, now I understood the meaning behind why Lexi was upset with him and didn’t want anything to do with him. When he left the second time, I was like “I swear Lucas better not leave and go to freaking Chicago and without telling Alexis that he’s going up there for his best friend who’s in a coma and they will pull the plug soon. He better tells Alexis because if they break up again, I’m going to be really irritated.”

And boy was I irritated smh, but I was glad when she went to Chicago after she talked to both Caroline and Heather and they both told the story of why Cole hates Luke. I thought that it was amazing how the author had Luke, best friend Jose, taken his last breath, once he realizes Lexi was there in the care center with Lucas when he (Jose) took his last breath.

The ending was beautiful he took them to Disney World, not only that he asked her to marry him. Not only that but with the help of his parents, her sister, and her kids who had held the Will You (Paige) and Marry Me (Grace) signs up. With an arrow pointing at Luke in the picture so adorable. Plus, when they had themselves a baby I thought it was so cute. Even the name Harper wasn’t too bad.

Book Description:

I’ve been burned before.

Once by love, twice by fire.

And I don’t know which hurt worse.

For years, I’ve been playing with fire. Both in the sheets and in the streets. But after a life-changing accident, something had to give. Moving from Chicago to New York to live with my estranged brother is less than ideal, but it’s only temporary. To make it through the next year without killing each other, I need to stick to a few simple rules: no dating, no drama, no getting in each other’s business. Easy enough, right?

Then I met her, and the rules went out the window.

Problem is, he met her first.

**TWICE BURNED is the highly anticipated finale to HOT MESS, book one in the Love is Messy Duet**

That’s what happens in real relationships. It’s not hot sex and making googly eyes at each other. It’s burning dinner. It’s leaving a wet towel on the bathroom floor. It’s a struggle and it’s hard and some days make you want to pull your hair out. And yet, it’s beautiful. Because despite it all, you love each other. You might not love the other person’s flaws, but you accept them, love them anyway.

Book Review:

Luke and Lexi (two L’s equals LOVE) 

•••• Spoilers…. here and there•••••

I want to know who is awake. It had to be someone who was in the fire with him. Is it someone he worked with or a friend (could be someone he works with who is a friend). Also, I understood why he holds out on telling Alexis why he left Chicago and the reason he got burned. It could be a touchy feeling for someone who had gone through so much. Plus, he was in the hospital for 10 days, I believe not once did his brother ‘Cole” came to see him. I still want to know why Cole hates his brother Luke so much and don’t want to see him happy. He even trying to ruin the relationship he has going on with Alexis. Plus, I want to know why Luke left Chicago and why he was burned I know he used to be a fireman but what was behind him getting burned. I am interested in finding out why Cole, hates Luke I mean he keeps saying ask Luke or Luke you know why, and I am here like does Luke know why he hates him so much? Is it because of women maybe its the women name Caroline perhaps it’s not. Luke has a lot of secrets, and I am hoping in all comes through in book 2 and not only in book 2 but closer to the freaking beginning and not towards the end because that is annoying.

P.S. Also, Alexis, ex-husband/baby father, evil one evil man like GOD he wasn’t even trying to be a co-parent at all he may as well let Lexi get full custody and Luke be the step[father to those kids. Because he spent more time with them and evil played with them, unlike their dad, who put a movie in and gave the one girl a phone. Like I cannot stand those type of parents, even those who work in daycare or babysitter who doesn’t do anything with the kids.

Btw: Alexis, did get on my nerves because I felt like she was so Whiny and didn’t want to give Luke a chance when he was actually coming to see her texting and calling, even wanting to spend time with her and the kids.

Book Description:

My life is a hot mess.

Single, working, and raising two daughters, it’s a miracle I get us up, dressed, and fed every morning. Forget about dating–nobody’s got time for that. Even if love hadn’t left me jaded, I’m not settling for anything less than perfect this time around.

Lucky for me, the perfect man just happens to work in my office. But there’s just one small problem: he’s my boss, and is totally off limits. But hey, if it’s meant to be, it’ll find a way, right?

Then a night out with friends turns into a night in with the walking-talking bad boy cliche of a bartender. It’s just one night. No harm, no foul, right?

Except when the hot bartender turns out to be my boss’s trouble-making brother, who wants more than just one night with me. The more I resist the spark between us, the more I find myself wanting him too. Which puts me in the middle of what could be the biggest sibling rivalry of the century.

Life is messy.

And love?

Well, love is even messier.
