Off Limits: The Best Friend by Kat Bellemore

Second, to the fourth book, I’m reading… so far it’s good…

Book Review:

I see the meaning behind the title but the book was a good-ok read!!

Spoilers….here and there

I kind of started with book two, now I wish I started with book one first. But oh well, not going back to read a series over just because I wanna see what happened again. But at least I’ll get the chance to read book 5 soon enough!

So with that being said. When I first started this book, it started slow. It was kind of boring so.. it took me a while to finish it. Which lead me to read other books too.

But I was glad I finally got a chance to read this book. To learn who Alexis and Charlie were. Since they popped up in the book with Gracie and Markus.

With this book; I felt kind of bad for Alexis in many ways to those girls Cynthia and Jackie being mean to her. To Charlie dissing her, for Cynthia. I mean I understood why he was mad. But he still shouldn’t have thrown Cyrhnia in her face like that when she and Jackie were evil villains towards Alexis. Rob wasn’t mean like those girls were. He just had a feeling that Charlie had a thing for Alex. Even though Alex didn’t see it until after they kissed and stopped talking for a while.

I know one thing it took them long enough to get together. Because I was like dang… they dragging this along too much when they could talk to each other and work out there a friendship with each other. Even though friendship with each other wouldn’t have worked anymore because they both wanted to be with each other. But those use other people for a distraction…

Book Description:

She’s the high school klutz. He’s the best friend. But it wasn’t enough.

Alexa Parker’s only goal is to get into the best pre-med program in the country. No big deal. Except that nothing in her life ever goes as planned. 

If an ice cream machine is going to explode, it will be her pulling the handle.

If a cactus is going to be sat on, it will be her butt that will be full of needles.

The only thing going right is the fact that her lifelong—and only—friend, Charlie, has stuck by her side through it all. Until Alex realizes she likes him more than a friend, and she manages to mess that up too.

Their Baby Arrangement That Led To Real Love (BWWM, Alpha Male, CEO, Bachelor, Brothers Best Friend, Baby, Hidden Secrets, Lust, Surprise Love Romance) by Cynthia Shaw

I actually enjoyed this book. Didn’t take me long to read it either. 

Book Review:

This was a pretty good book; I wasn’t disappointed
***Spoilers. Here and there***I enjoyed this book way better than the one that I was reading way before this one.

I liked Elijah and Jennifer’s story. I realize a lot of books I’ve been reading the characters get together as fast as heck. But when they don’t I complain 😂 because I want them together already.

Ugh! I can tell I’m annoyed when it comes to stuff like that when they take forever to tell the said person how they feel but when it’s fast like with this book I’m like really.

But not disappointed at all by how fast they ended up together. I kind of figured that either Elijah always liked Jennifer or she liked him. But it’s was him who always liked her. I felt like he said yes, because what other opportunities you going to get with someone you’ve always liked. It’s best to take a chance at something that will turn out good.

That’s what Elijah did even with the ups and downs they had to go through with being together and having Dorek (I didn’t like that name but whatever). But even with all of that, they made it work. Even when Malcolm (Jen brother; Elijah’s best friend) almost ruin it for them. I was glad when he realized that he was acting ridiculous about what was going on between both Jen and Elijah.

But I too thought/assume something might be going on with Malcolm and Megan (Jen best friend) they just gave me a vibe at Elijah opening for his new shop. I wish they had or got a book if so I want to know where it’s at.


Book Description:

Jennifer wants a baby. It has been her dream since she was a child to have a family of her own someday, but that’s quite hard to do when she’s a single man-less woman.

Elijah, CEO and tattoo enthusiast, plans on being a bachelor until the day he dies. He doesn’t want a wife and he doesn’t want kids. 

They both have their lives planned out but everything changes when Jennifer convinces Elijah, her brother’s best friend, to be her sperm donor. She’s contented with being a single mother and he doesn’t want a family, so he’s the perfect person within her eyes and someone she knows and trusts.  

Life never works out the way you plan, now pregnant with Elijah’s child, Jennifer will be learning that the hard way as she slowly falls for him. 

Will she be able to ignore her feelings and raise her child on her own as planned? Will Elijah be able to continue being a bachelor after discovering there is more to Jennifer than what meets the eye? And will they be able to keep this secret from her brother? 

No one is better than creating chaos than life itself and their life is about to be turned upside down.

Her Forbidden Neighbor Next Door by Carmel Sanders

This the most shitt-est dead-est book I ever read in my life. I’ve read plenty of them. But i’m curious as to what will happened next. I know one thing I should’ve kept reading that other book 😐🤦🏽‍♀️🙄.. straight #garbagecan straight #doodoo.

Book Review:

It was dead 

… this sh** is dry ….?sorry not sorry 😐 at all … it’s only a little bit of spoilers towards the end of my review. More like two-part of my last sentence or whatever ****

I don’t know while reading this book they don’t seem like a black woman and a white male. I don’t feel it while I’m reading this book. As I have read other interracial romance books.

Nor do I feel like this book good. I’m glad that this book has a few chapters I believe it has at least five. Because it’s kind of boring to me. Not even exciting and interesting enough.

But I’m too curious to stop reading it because I want to know what happens next. Even with how boring it is. Ugh so disappointed.

I’m hoping I get to something exciting by the time I am done reading if not this will be a bust.

I think to agree with everyone else the grammar is just blah I know I’m not the best writer myself. But the way this book is written for me that it’s straight doo-doo it’s just for me is hmm. I can’t think straight!!!! I thought it was five chapters but it’s seven ughhh 😩
With the seven chapters, I skip half of what happened between them. Don’t feel bad about it either. I can say the only part I liked was chapter seven 🤷🏽‍♀️I guess it was chapter seven. I think it was six and seven. From the part where she “Jasmine” got kidnapped to “Anthony” got hit by a hit and run. But they found Jasmine fast as heck 💀 normally when I read books it takes a while for someone to be found smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ but I figure he wasn’t going to keep Sophia all I know is she’s going to feel some type of way. Especially when he kept Theodore and not her.

Whatever. But I figure that it had something to do with Brigitte I was like that girl didn’t forgive Jasmine like she said she did… no way someone stops being mad that fast. But at least she in jail now for being a crazy B. That’s probably why Anthony didn’t want her *** any more… 💀😂😂 he knew she wasn’t right in the head. The D did turn her beyond crazy to kill DONT make no dang sense smh 🤦🏽‍♀️… at least the cops got her a** now…


Book Description:

Jasmine Carter and Brigitte Carson are best of friends. So when Brigitte has an intense relationship with the hot, well-endowed Anthony O’Reilly, she would often tell Jasmine about their wild steamy escapades. Eventually it would end and they would both part ways, but Brigitte would always proclaim Anthony to be the best she ever had. Jasmine and Brigitte have a rule of not messing with a man either of them has been with, but secretly, Jasmine would often wonder what made Anthony so great in bed.

Years later, Jasmine gets a surprise shock when Anthony O’Reilly becomes her new neighbor. It’s not long before tension arises between them. However, Jasmine is hell-bent on following the rule she had made with Brigitte because she wouldn’t want to lose her friendship.

Will Jasmine stick to the rule she made all those years ago with her best friend Brigitte? Will curiosity, the lure of Anthony’s charm and trouser snake get the better of Jasmine? Can happiness be found between them? Or are heartbreak and ruined friendships on the cards?

Her Lost Daughter: A BWWM Romantic Suspense by Raven Rivers

Currently reading “her lost daughter”… I’m still reading other books. But hopefully after I finish this. I’ll be able to finish the other three too. Because whoosh!

Book Review:

It was a good read. Definitely have some irritating people in it.

Spoilers….thrown here and there throughout this review….

Okay, so this book was so good. But I want to say that her ex Mike was horrible for sitting and watching Shannon gets kidnapped by Evans. Like what in the world. Like who does that? Then sit and call her after he learns of her escaping ask about coming back from where she came from like she went on vacation or something. Which was just crazy.

Top of that Shannon has to deal with these horrible men to even teenage young boys. If someone sits and does or says things as a teen to their early 20s you should already what type of person they are going to turn out to be.

Lord don’t get me started on Erin’s husband, Richard. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ I had to just shake my head at how horrible he was to her sister Erin being horrible too. Like what in the world I definitely thought Erin would’ve had her back. But guess not she was just too stupid and dumb to realize how her husband Richmond until Conner actually told her how he probably set Shannon up for Evans to get her.

I do wonder if Erin was going to stay with her horrible husband to smiling about Erin losing her sister. To more likely losing her husband to jail for helping Evan get to Shannon and Molly. I’m like ha… maybe you weren’t so far up your husband behind… and look out for your sister who was kidnapped at age 19 and finally escaped. You wouldn’t have lost anything. It’s funny to me because they both Richard and Erin tried to ruin everything for Shannon when Shannon actually gain a lot she gains a new family ( got her daughter back to getting involve and ending up marrying Conner). Who’s a billionaire; I said to myself now watch she gone need Shannon when her husband gets lock up.

I still say Richard deserve jail time because he treated Shannon so wrong on so many levels. I also am happy that they finally got rid of Evans to Shannon finally being happy with someone who loves her. I am so glad that Andrea ended up okay because she got the worse of the accident that Evans tried to kill them in…

Her Adopted Baby That Came With Hidden Secrets (BWWM, Adoption, New Mom, Blast From The Past Romance) by Justeen Jones

I didn’t take me long to read this book. It’s actually good.

Book Review:

It was pretty good

Spoilers… thrown throughout this review….

This the second book that I’ve read by Justeen Jones. I can say I wasn’t disappointed. But, I definitely thought a bomb was about to drop (meaning; Jonas was going to start some SHHHH) like the other girl Leigh in the last book I read.

But he didn’t lol; he ONLY was upset because Damion came into Nicole and Macy life. I had to roll my eyes because for one he should’ve known that eventually, someone was going to come into Nicole and Macy’s life and want a family. Instead, he waited too long to pull a move on Nicole. Got mad because Damion got in her pants (as he says). I had to SMH because I knew he wanted it to be him.

I was glad when he finally came around and realize that Damion wasn’t an issue; that he wasn’t going to hurt Macy as he assumes he was due to his jealousy. One thing I do like to point out was after Nicole’s birthday party; I think the noise that both her and Damion heard while they were kissing wasn’t Macy. I think it was Jonas probably. Because I think he came back, thinking everybody left. Not sure if Nicole locked her door or not. But Jonas definitely came in the next day, like a tornado 🌪 out of hell.

I was like dang; he such a girl about a situation that he need not speak on just because he was in-like or in-love (going for the second one) with Nicole. But in the end in everything worked out and was glad that Jonas moved on from Nicole and himself a girl. Because it would’ve been a shame if he left Macy for good due to jealousy for something he couldn’t have. 


Book Description:

Nicole Jones has always wanted a baby but she isn’t able to have any of her own, so she decides to adopt a baby girl. She didn’t expect everything that would come with it though. She was ready for diapers, a terrible love life and a lifetime of commitment to her little girl, but what she was not ready for was the father of her adopted baby showing up. It is one thing for the father of her child to suddenly make an appearance, but it is entirely another to find out he is someone from her past. 

Damion Wood is trying to make amends. He wants nothing more than a relationship with the daughter he was once forced to give up, and he is willing to do anything he can to make it happen.

Can Nicole trust him? Can Damion step up to the plate? And at the end of it all, are feelings with someone you have to spend so much time with inevitable?

Saved By The Fireman’s Big Hose (BWWM, Widower, Fireman, Crazy Ex’s, Life Threatening Romance) by Justeen Jones

I haven’t read a interracial romance in a long time. I’m actually enjoying this book…

Book Review:

Definitely enjoyed this book had to get back into interracial reading

Spoilers….thrown throughout this book.

I’m going to say this I already knew something was up with that Leigh girl. Especially when it came to her brother Travis. Both are some weird individuals. But I dang sure was GLAD when Travis… didn’t agree to let things slide with they finally got caught in the act…. for the third time with the third fire he started. He actually told the reasons behind why he did it.

The first fire with Annie and Danny – Luke’s wife and son. Was because of his psycho a$$ sister smh 🤦🏽‍♀️. Leigh and her obsession with Luke someone she couldn’t have and still didn’t get even after Annie died.

The second fire at the high school – with Irene. Because Travis didn’t like that Irene was going to tell on – write him up, for cheating. So he thought it was cool to try to kill her thank Goodness that one didn’t work. What tripped me out was the fact that Travis was there like everyone else; and tried to tell Luke to go to the English classroom – Irene classroom. When Irene wasn’t there. If it wasn’t for Susan, Irene colleague I know that Irene would’ve been dead all because of Travis. Which he wanted smh 🤦🏽‍♀️.
I thought he was a daMNNNN fool for that one. Because you ruin a whole school just because you cheated on a pop quiz like that right there was just ridiculous.

On top of that don’t get me started on the third fire that happened with – Irene, her daughters Alexis and Lydia, and Luke’s son Danny.

Then learning that Leigh turned off the warning bell about the fire. I was glad that Irene told Danny to call his dad because if he didn’t I know they would’ve been blown up in smoke. That would’ve hurt both their families minus – Irene ex-boyfriend – the girl’s father Freddy.

Which I am getting to soon after I talk about Leigh crazy A$$.. so like I said Leigh was just psycho like OMG! Like she was sooo obsessed that she did everything she could to get rid of Irene. That she didn’t even care that should’ve killed three kids that didn’t even pass the age seven. Like omg; I wanted to slap fire from her a$$.

When Luke told her so she didn’t even care about it especially when it came to Danny who already had nightmares. To be in a second fire due to the same two horrible individuals. Then I’m top of that he had to deal with also withdrawing and having more of bad nightmares. Lord knows I was glad when I learn that Leigh got fifteen years over her had she deserved it. So did her brother who got fewer years than she did.

So with that being said. On to Irene freaking ex-boyfriend Freddy that man was just horrible. He didn’t even give to flying ducks about his daughters. He was busy worrying about Irene and getting back with her to control her and manipulate her like he was doing when they are together. Lord knows I was glad when his brother finally came to the realization of how horrible Freddy was and who was telling the truth. I did want to see how that custody battle was going to go even though I know that Irene would’ve won it.


Book Description:

Ever since his wife died in a fire, fireman Luke’s priority had always been his son. He didn’t want to find anyone else to share his life with. Until he meets Irene and his priorities begin to change.

Irene didn’t think she had time to date. Not when she had two young children and an ex-boyfriend who refused to let go of the fact their relationship ended years ago. Things like that can be a bit of a mood killer. Her focus now is making sure her children aren’t caught in the middle. Then when she’s caught in a fire and rescued by gorgeous firefighter Luke who makes her body heat up more than the fire, she wonders if maybe she had been a little too hasty.

The chemistry between them is strong. Very strong. Both of them come with baggage, but it’s nothing they can’t handle. Although someone is very determined that their fledgling relationship doesn’t get off the ground…

Backup Plan by Emily Goodwin

ARC.. copy of “Backup Plan” by @authoremilygoodwin …. I’m really curious about this series; and Sam story! 

Book Review:

…SPOILERS THROWN HERE AND THERE THROUGH THIS REVIEW…

OMG bruhhhh! I am so disappointed the way this book ended lol ugh; now I can’t wait for book two “Desperate times” to come out in October.

I liked this book. It was interesting. I can say it did take them a minute to understand that they both wanted each other even from when they both were teenagers to both of them being an adult.

But Lord; ish about to hit the fan in book two of its about Sam and Chloe. I know it’s about them by how this book ended. Chloë finna act irrationally. I think that’s the word I’m looking for especially if the girl “Stacey” is pregnant. Poor Sam; he finally got the girl and here come Stacey I knew their relationship wasn’t going to end to good lmao some drama was about to show up.

But I kept thinking that maybe Sam was going to adopt the little five-year-old boy. That was had trauma and was in a coma.

Through all of that, his Sam family knew that Chloe was right for him. Hope he doesn’t mess it up. But in my mind it’s going to be Chloe that’s going to RUN probably. Though she had told Sam to talk to Stacey. So I don’t know what’s going to happen in the end. But cannot wait to find out.

Because I liked this book and wasn’t disappointed at all. I read this like in a day or three.


52226130. sy475 Book Description:

When we were only kids, Sam Harris and I made a promise we’d marry each other if we were still single when we turned thirty. Well, my thirtieth birthday has come and gone and I’m still as single as ever.

And as far as I know, so is Sam.

But it’s been ages since we’ve seen each other, and after what he did to me our senior year of college, I wouldn’t put his ring on my finger even if he begged me to marry him. Never mind his devilish good looks. Or the fact that the playboy partier is a doctor now.

Nope, I’m sticking to my guns with this, and when I go back to my hometown of Silver Ridge for the first time in years, I won’t pay him the slightest bit of attention. Well…until he convinces me to go out for drinks to catch up. I knew it was a bad idea the moment I agreed to it.

And then he brings up our childhood promise.

It might be fun and games to him, but it’s not to me. Because as much as I don’t want to admit it, Sam has always been my first choice. And I don’t want to be nothing more than his backup plan.

***Backup Plan, book one in the Boys of Silver Ridge Series, is coming summer 2020***.

 

Off Limits: The Scrooge (Off-Limits #3) by Kat Bellemore

Currently reading📕….. .

Book Review:

Good read…..

***Spoilers. Thrown here and there***

This is the third book to this series. Glad I got around to reading. I think that it’s good. I’ve read books 2, 4, and now 3 so far in this series. I do have to read book 1. I’ll read that soon enough!

So with that being said… I just didn’t understand what Cameron had against rich people especially Amanda when he didn’t know what happened or what she been through when she lost her dad. Her mom had to be the one to go to work to make sure Amanda was good even though they both were grieving for the loss of her dad and her mom’s husband.

I liked the fact that Cameron’s mom understood that and not only that Cameron’s dad explains to Cam the reason behind his statement he made. About the guy who laid him off or whatever. & not Amanda’s mom. He should’ve known that Amanda and her mom weren’t bad people. I was glad he realizes that about her and figured it out and apologize to Amanda.

Not only that Amanda understanding the way that Cameron felt. But you could tell Cam did things that got himself in trouble because of what he didn’t have. But learning that the prank wasn’t for the drama team but actually for Blair’s brother was good to know.

53001161. sx318 sy475

Book Description:

He’s a star swimmer. She’s in the drama club. One prank will upend everything.

After star swimmer, Cameron Taylor, pulls a prank that manages to both terrify the drama club and cancel his swim meet, he’s unable to escape punishment. Suspended from the swim team, he thinks it can’t get worse…until he’s cast as young Scrooge in the school play. If he refuses? He’ll be kicked off the team permanently.

No matter what Amanda Barrett auditions for, she never makes the cut. Just once she’d like someone to notice her. But when she finally lands a role in The Christmas Carol as Belle, Scrooge’s ex-fiancée, she doesn’t even have time to celebrate before she realizes her character’s love interest is the obnoxiously arrogant and rude (though, admittedly hot) captain of the swim team.

As their Christmas performance draws near, Amanda and Cameron will need to put aside their differences and figure out—before it’s too late—they are meant to be much more than rivals.

Off Limits: The Smarty-Pants (Off-Limits #2) by Kat Bellemore

Finally gotten around to reading this book. I’m trying to at least finish this book.

Book Review:

Good

Spoilers….just a few.

I finally got around to reading the second book to this series. I know I read like the fourth book. I believe in this series. I know I am kind of out of order when it comes to this series. But regardless of out of order, I am, I still think that this book is good.

Not only that I felt that Gracie and Mark were right for each other. Never thought that Mark was a nerd… I thought he was a different type. But felt that he was different and right for Gracie and she to him. Plus; I felt that he definitely needed to talk to his dad. About what he wanted out of life. Not only that, but it also helped so much when it came to telling his father. He finally knew what is dad felt and why his mom and dad broke up.

Plus I see that he went to MIT. I kind of forgot he was in college. Because book four wasn’t based on him and Gracie but on there other friend Sandra and the principal son Blair… 


53002289. sx318 sy475

Book Description:

She’s a free spirit. He’s bound by the rules. A school trip is going to change everything.

Gracie Porter was born an artist. She has thirty lava lamps and several murals (aka her bedroom walls) to prove it. But then her mom goes back to work and Gracie suddenly finds herself taking care of her six younger siblings, with no time for herself. When Gracie is offered a spot on a weeklong school trip, she jumps at the chance to get out of the house. She didn’t count on the cute, but dorky, Markus Brown being there as well.

Markus Brown is too smart for his own good. At least, that’s how everyone else sees him. In reality, he’s living the life his father paved for him. He couldn’t care less about college or grades. When Markus ends up on the same school trip as Gracie, his secret crush, he finally feels like he has permission to be himself, and to go after the girl of his dreams. But he’s been entrenched in his father’s thinking far too long, and there are some old habits that won’t die without a fight.

Gracie and Markus have one week to open their hearts, learn to trust each other, and realize that life is better when they don’t try to do it alone.

My High School Rebel Boyfriend: A Sweet YA Enemies to Lovers Romance (Boyfriend Series (River Valley High) Book 4) by Kylie Key

So far I’m liking this book. Lately I’ve been reading some boring books. I’ve been taking forever to finish them. This the second book so far that has kept my interest. Then I’ll be back to finishing off the other boring book I started bleh. 

Book Review:

Good read

Spoilers, thrown out throughout this review…

I was curious about this book about how it was going to be. It was good. Was it different yes; I felt like Mitch and Harper were made for each other because they both were dealing with something that was in their life. Harper with her diabetes and Mitch with his stepfather abuse and his mother’s arthritis.

The only problem with this book I had was the repeat of Harper’s diabetes and what she had to do to keep herself good. I was like that was too much (not about diabetes) but the repeats of it. I’m not wording it right, but I felt I understood her situation and felt like the food intake, etc didn’t need a repeat in every chapter.

What I did felt bad about what Mitch and his friends did with her foods. They didn’t save any for her. I felt like you don’t go in someone’s bag. When you don’t know if there’s a reason why that person may have things in their bag. Dude to their health. I was waiting on Mitch to get a clue on how he been treating her. After her diabetes scare.., he got himself together and realize that he shouldn’t be mean to her.

I felt like he always carried out an attitude towards people, because of what went on at home. I was glad that he had Harper in his life. Because I felt like MAYBE his stepdad would get a clue; I just wish that Harper could’ve told her parents at least about Mitch and his abuse…

But she wanted to keep his secret and see if his stepfather Wade would change. Also, I think with the training, his mom probably would move around more. Harper to me brought LIGHT into Mitch family because no one seems happy until Harper popped up.
