Falling For My Nemesis: A Sweet YA Romance (Sweet Water High #6) by Tia Souders

This was a pretty good book read it in two day 👌 📖⭐️

Book Review:

Good
***•••There are a few spoilers not that many, but a few•••

Oh, I hope that “Falling For My Best Friend by Victorine E. Lieske” is the next book to this series. I don’t even want to read the short story because I know I want more…

But anyways I already knew this book was going to be good in the end because for one. These series have been good; it’s either a four-star ⭐️ or a five star ⭐️ when I end up reading a book from this series. I can’t wait for the next book. I heard it supposed to be 12 books to this series. I’ll wait and see.
Other than that I had a feeling that Carson actually liked Mia…. for one he showed her he liked her by being mean to her… but she liked at it as being BULLIED, and he didn’t like her. I don’t understand why a guy does that to get girl attention when they can actually tell the girl they like her… I guess Carson had to figure out a way to get Mia attention, but it sucked that he had to hit her in the eye with the ball. Heck, I know that feeling since I got hit in the head with one myself in middle school.
It also was funny when both Ethan and Mia stated that the kiss was horrible gosh that was hilarious… I said not “you kiss like my grandma” 🤣🤣🤣 hilarious…. but at least I’m the end he knew he didn’t want her & she didn’t want him… & also Carson stopped ignoring Mia and actually gotten into a REAL relationship with her instead Of beating around the bush … & she got into Duke too. It’s also funny how Carson also wanted Duke to be his number one school… & that Ethan was happy for both of them regardless… he was just jealous of losing his best friend… I did want to slap her for ignoring him though. But at least they made up in that 5. seconds of talking & doing a kiss that both thoughts were gross.
Plus; I want a book about Ethan; hopefully, it’ll happen soon…


45943597Book Description:

Spending time with my nemesis never felt so good.

Carson Brooks has been my enemy since the day he moved to Sweet Water and tried to drown me in a rogue wave.

Not only are we enemies, but we’re not quiet about it either. We’re polar opposites. Where I’m a perfectionist and methodical in all things, he is carefree and the life of the party.

While Carson tries to trip me in the halls on a regular basis, I’m busy glaring holes through his disgustingly thick skull.
Oh, and did I mention I’m best friends with his little brother? Talk about inconvenient.

But it’s our senior year and my life is unraveling. My parents are at each other’s throats, I have yet to hear back about early admissions at the college of my choice, and I have no date to the Snowflake Ball. So, when Carson whacks me in the face with a basketball during gym class, I snap. I go for his throat–literally.

Now Sweet Water’s principal is giving us a choice: face suspension or find a way to work together on the holiday Angel Project.

Great. As if living in a warzone weren’t enough, now I have to spend time with the enemy.

But as tensions rise and we begin spending time together, I realize there’s more to Carson Brooks than his cocky exterior. Maybe I like him more than I thought. Maybe a little too much. 
Falling For My Nemesis is a standalone novel in a twelve part series.

Chemistry of a Kiss: A Sweet YA Romance (Sweet Water High #5) by Kimberly Krey

CURRENTLY READING: Chemistry of a Kiss by Kimberly Krey 

Book Review:

This was. Actually a good book; definitely was chemistry in their kiss 💋💜💛

Okay !!!!

* As always there will be a few or a lot of spoilers in my review; so I like to prepare or beware, people before they actually read my review.

So with that being said… I like this book; I was kind of mad at Jett (by the way I have read three books so far with this name) it is torture lol! But like I said I was mad at him because I thought he was actually blowing Harper off for wack girl Tasha. But Tasha lame mean girl self; ruin things for Harper and even Jett! Now I see why Conner was telling Harper that Jett thinks she’s mad at him… but at least he could’ve had the dignity to come to her that same day… pickle face Tasha had asked him to the dance; or even told her no; because I want to go with my “girlfriend” Harper. But he didn’t. But got mad when TJ was feeling all on Harper behind! Like he was literally mad… though none of that would’ve happened if Tasha didn’t steal Harper poster she made…
Clearly, she (Tasha) wanted everything that Harper had… such as TJ then Jett… like she couldn’t even get a guy unless Harper already had him. I did think that TJ was a horrible boyfriend for Harper, even her mother knew and told her don’t go down the land that I went with your father. That she didn’t; a lot of times you can’t help someone who doesn’t want the help that you are trying to give to them. I was glad when Harper realizes she couldn’t help TJ… Plus, I kind of figure that Jett sorta liked Harper on the DL….. especially when it came to Junior high during spend the bottle… but Jett ruin that for himself since he told everybody that Harper had a crush on him when he knew darn well that he had one on her too; & wanted that kiss as much as Harper during Junior high! Not only during junior high but way before they caught Tasha & TJ together when Tasha has kissed him (TJ) at Burger Bar. He definitely wanted to kiss her at his house before his father walked into the house, and definitely didn’t want her to leave his house either.

But in the end, I’m glad they worked everything out with one another after the dance; when Jett punched the pickle juice out of TJ… for touching Harper; Jett definitely wasn’t having that…😂 Harper was his woman 💜…. he was mad too when TJ stated he and Harper was trying to make their ex’s jealous (Tasha & Jett) he couldn’t believe that she thought they were broken up… but the way he acted and went to the dance with Tasha you can only assume, but in the end they were happy and turned out to be a real boyfriend & girlfriend….

Book Description:

How did I end up in a fake relationship with the gorgeous captain of the basketball team, Jett Bryant? Where do I start?
Back in kindergarten, I used to dream about kissing that adorable brown-eyed boy. He was also the pastor’s son but that didn’t stop me from chasing him down, tackling him on the playground, and kissing him smack on the lips.
Then in eighth grade, I was about to kiss him for real (as real as a spin the bottle kiss could get) but Jett ruined it by telling everyone about the playground kiss so I kissed some guy named James instead.
Fast-forward to our senior year where Jett and I got partnered in Marriage and Relations class and were asked to research—of all things—The Chemistry of a Kiss. It had me thinking about those yummy lips of his a little, but I kept my focus strong since I was dating TJ Reynolds, one of Sweet Water’s most misunderstood bad boys and lead singer of Grungetown.
But somewhere along the way, TJ got jealous and kissed Jett’s vicious ex-girlfriend and that’s how he became my ex and that’s when the whole fake relationship idea started in the first place.
The trouble is, all the feelings I had for Jett over the years came pouring back as we spent time together, and our topic wasn’t helping the situation one bit. Neither were the incredible kisses he gave me as we “pretended” to like each other.
Things really get complicated when Jett starts cozying up to me when nobody’s around to witness it. Maybe this whole fake relationship is turning into the real thing. But how can I be sure?

Hot Mess (Messy Love #1) by R. Linda

This book is actually good … the main character “Wren” is hilarious especially when it comes to her obsession over pizza 🍕….. 😂 you know you love pizza when you pick it over gas, & electricity among other things 😂🤦🏽‍♀️ 

Book Review:

It was good

••*** There’s a will or a possibility of a few or a lot of spoilers****•••
I thought hmmm; the Description ehhh… not sure if it’s going to be good or not! But dang it was actually good. I laugh a lot while reading this book. Wren was hilarious, especially when it came to her pizza. But what I realize is that often that a lot of authors have written books about women who are big bone & that they have either been disrespected for being more significant or relationships has failed. When in reality that’s not the case… because for one woman who is medium size or skinny has it hard too when it comes to people judging there size and loving them for who they are… I just want a book with at least with a skinny or medium size female with these problems and also over 5’5…
Other than that I actually liked this book because for one Tate was good for Wren and Wren was good for Tate… I was glad when he got rid of Rachel horrible self…. she was so annoying and hated on Wren for no particular reason; when Wren didn’t give a flying rats ass about Rachel… I was surprised that Wren didn’t say anything about the party Rachel had in her back yard & then telling everyone to leave. When Wren got in her ass for calling her a whale… I don’t understand how someone can hate someone due to their size, either small or big…. for one Wren had a real body whereas Rachel was plastic… I glad Tate wanted real over fake… quirky over wack.. weird or boogie…

Btw: I wonder what book two will be about… hopefully, her friend Eva 😌👌

There’s always that one girl who has all these dreams, yet she can’t reach them because she’s constantly tripping over her own two feet. 

That’s me. I’m that girl. The unorganized, chaotic, hot mess. 

I’m the struggling artist who refuses to give up my love for pizza just because society constantly shoves thin, perfectly toned bodies in my face saying that’s what women are supposed to look like. 

Oh, and I’m filthy rich. On paper anyway. I can’t touch my trust fund just yet, so to get those nasty debt-collectors off my back I rent out the snazzy mansion my parents left me. 

Of course, it has to be Tate Montgomery who moves in—the super sexy celebrity with three million, five hundred and twenty-six followers on Instagram. And of course, I have to be the paint-covered walking disaster who falls for the said famous tenant. 

The problem? Tate and I, we’re not compatible…at all. He’s arrogant. I’m stubborn. It’s a train wreck waiting to happen. 

Yet, I end up kissing him anyway. 

Told you I was a mess.

Rule #5: You Can’t Trust the Bad Boy (The Rules of Love #5) by Anne-Marie Meyer

My current read; it’s an alright book 📖👌 📖 

Book Review:

You can trust the bad boy.

••••Spoilers; but not that many, no!***•••
Okay, this book was good; I was glad that Jet gave Brielle the experience that she truly needed because her parents were horrible. I always say being rich is not always a happy life because often people with a lot of money think people less money is beneath them….. that was definitely Brielle parents; until they learn actually to start caring more for Brielle and let her run; her own life instead of controlling it for her. If it wasn’t for her meeting Jet; I think she would’ve spent that tome with Stefano or whatever his name is that don’t care to remember.
Jet; was good for her, and she was good for him. Also; I knew that Jasmine girl was going to be horrible soon as they started singing that song “The Boy is Mine” by Brandy and Monica… I was like yup; Brielle should’ve seen that coming when the girl started talking to her in the bathroom. Never trust someone when it comes to their ex; because often if she still wants him, she coming after you.

But in the end, Brielle was the one who gotten Jett! & her parents learn to like him as Brielle did, which was a good thing.

Kissing the Boy Next Door (Sweet Water High #3) by Judy Corry

Actually a good book 📖 📖 

Book Review:

It was good

••***Spoilers throughout this review**••
I thought this book was way better than the others to this series that I read… it kept me interested… I figured that Lauren dad was the real dad, especially when they were trying to figure out what the family feud was all about. The whole time it wasn’t even Wes parents nor was it her dad (the man that raised her) fought… more so it was her mom, keeping those secrets from both her husband and daughter even though her husband knew already. But it would’ve been better if her mom was women enough to tell Lauren about her birth father. Nobody told her mom to spread her legs and rebound with TJ aka Travis aka Lauren and Wes cross country coach! Then end up pregnant and keeping it a secret… if only she would’ve been truthful I think that family feud wouldn’t have happened because her mom felt some way when Wes mom asked her questions about TJ… But in the end, I’m glad that everyone finally got along and forgiven each other…

Book Description:

Talking to him is forbidden, so why can’t I stay away?

It’s been five years since Wes and I have spoken. Five years since he decided our friendship was less important than our parents’ fight. So when we’re forced to practice a duet together, I expect him to keep our contact to a minimum.

Instead, he’s telling me the feud between our parents has gone on long enough. That he misses me and wants to fix things between us.

But I’m not going to fall for it. I won’t fall for his charms like so many other girls have in the past.

If only my stupid heart would listen to my brain. Because kissing the boy next door is no way to fix a family feud.

Or is it?

Crushing on My Brothers’ Best Friend (Sweet Water High Book 2) by Julia Keanini

I thought I posted this book, didn’t realize it wasn’t on here. I’m 84% done. This is 1 out of the five books I’m reading. That I need to finish. 🥀

Book Review:

Okay

Let’s see this book was cute… let’s see will there be any spoilers once I start writing.

So okay, like I said this book was actually cute. Then the last chapter the “Epilogue” I was like ugh hurry up already I was ready to finish for some reason. But anyways I thought the story was cute. I assume that she Emmy was going to be sneaking around with Ky and her brothers wouldn’t like them sneaking behind their backs, but the whole time in the book they were giving each other googly eyes and thinking that it was one-sided when it came to them liking each other. & them ending up ignoring one another; and or dating someone else. While her best friend Tori dated her brother Elijah for a while then became friends.
But in reality they both liked each other, Ky was using Janna, in my opinion, to make Emmy jealous though he was actually using her to hide his feelings for her from her twin brothers Emmett and Elijah … when Emmett knew that Ky liked her since eighth grade. But when the football players were checking out Emmy, her brothers flip out so that push Ky back and to become distant and which made Emmy upset.

Then they went to their grandparents camping place or whatever Ky told Emmy how he felt, and she ran away then felt stupid by doing it and worrying herself to death about it. But FINALLY, in the end, Ky got the courage to ask Emmy to not only the homecoming dance but to be his girlfriend… guest what her brothers weren’t even mad why? Because they realize it wouldn’t ruin their friends as it didn’t ruin any friend with Tori and Emmy when Tori dated Emmy brother Elijah. UGH, all of that could’ve been avoided, and they could’ve started dating in like chapter 4 or 5… what a waste….. but at least the book was good though; give it that…


 

44232202Book Description:

Gorgeous, charming, and funny. Ky would be any girl’s dream guy. Too bad he’s my brothers’ best friend.  

I fly below the radar. It’s kind of my thing. With twin superstar older brothers, it isn’t hard to do. But when I’m epically dumped by my first boyfriend ever, it puts me right where I hate to be–in the limelight. And suddenly, everyone in Sweet Water is alerted to my love life, especially my nosy and overprotective brothers.

I did my best to manage the attention until I discover that Ky Andrews, the guy that I’ve crushed on since elementary school and my brothers’ best friend, is also paying attention. He’s recently broken up with his girlfriend and is actually talking to me…like a girl, not a bud. Just when I think this might be the happily-ever-after I’ve dreamed of, my brothers ruin it all. Suddenly, every boy in Sweet Water won’t touch me with a ten-foot pole–including Ky.

But when I’m suddenly paired with Ky for a project in yearbook, it seems like he’s struggling to keep his distance. Now confused, I have to decide if I’m willing to take the risk and fall for Ky or protect my heart and forever remain a wallflower.

Misunderstanding the Billionaire’s Heir (Sweet Water High #1) by Anne-Marie Meyer

This book is actually good. 👌🏽📖

Book Review:

I actually liked this book.

•••*** Not that many spoilers; but there’s some yes***•

I kind of thought well figured that Lucas actually liked Charlotte from the first start when he met her at Maggie job. & then turns around and he’s the grandson of Winny. That’s what made them close. But I thought he was a prick until I realize he really not. His father is the one that made him so angry because his father felt like Lucas was a disappointment. One thing I’m glad on was not being born rich because often times the rich have it way worse than the poor. You gotta look at even though this person may not have all the money in the world they are more 100% happier. Money isn’t everything. Charlotte showed Luke is the real meaning of life and to actually be a nice person and that everyone loves their family in a good way.

Keith and their mother seem like evil people. No way; I would want someone to plan my life. When someone does that to their child that child will be 100% miserable or hateful in the long run. Because often times that’s not where they wanted to be. But I am glad Lucas found Charlotte in Sweet Water. Not for her; I think he would’ve had a horrible life. Plus I knew that he didn’t want Charlotte best friend Maggie I don’t understand how in the world both Charlotte mad Maggie didn’t see it. Plus, it’s understandable why her father didn’t move those cars but I am glad that Lucas helped in the end and Charlotte came to her senses about her wanting to be with Lucas. I was like girl you better forget what his father thinks; heck at least he the one that wants you.

Book Description:

He wasn’t supposed to be nice. This changes everything. 

Charlotte Robinson has one goal: survive her senior year. Well, if she’s truthful, it’s actually to survive her new life without her mom. Which would be a lot easier to do if her dad was actually dealing with the death. Instead, he’s buried himself in so many abandoned vehicles that their yard has turned into a suburban junkyard and it’s just a matter of time before the city intervenes. 

When Lucas Addington, the obnoxious rich kid who’s been banished to the small town of Sweet Water, douses her in his carmel macchiato, she’s pretty sure she’s reached her lowest low. But that’s only the beginning. He’s conceited and spoiled—everything she expected from a billionaire’s heir—until things begin to change. Suddenly, she finds herself drawn to him for reasons she can’t explain. He makes her feel safe and wanted, something she’d forgotten how to feel. Just when she allows herself to open up to him, her life comes crashing down around her. 

Now Charlotte must decide if she can fix her crumbling life and keep Lucas, or fail and lose everything she holds dear…again. 

1 town. 1 high school. 12 sweet romances. Read Misunderstanding the Billionaire’s Heir from Anne-Marie Meyer. It is the first installment of the Sweet Water High Multi-Author Series.

Book Review:

***I may mention a lot of spoilers throughout this review; for each of the books****


•••Theirs to Protect***Theirs to Protect

Okay I’m going to say this; man this book is good it’s so different from the other apocalypse books it’s like a love thing! & the thing I hated was Audrey her as got on my last nerves because she keeps thinking that she was in a bad place. But she wasn’t it was only Camila clan: and their people that were evil ass men…. she kept trying to run away; both her and Nix I wanted to smack but glad in the end that she finally realizes her ass wanted to stay right there with her husband… I did have to laugh at her dumb self when she went to no-man-land I knew it was a bad idea smh. God that girl was dumb, I knew she should’ve told Nix and her other four husbands about Camila wack abusive husbands. But no she wanted to run and got trap my Travis men who wanted to take her in the first place when they shot her brother Charlie for dead. Though I realize he didn’t die since the second book he’s in it… which I am happy about… I hope that they end up seeing each other because she was so disappointed about what happened to her brother and I was too. I also want to know what will happen to Camila husbands; I hope they end up dead or back to Travis gang of EVIL men like The Who’s that that hurt Nix sixteen-year-olds sister.

***Theirs to Pleasure***Theirs to Pleasure
So as I am reading the description of the second book. It states that someone is a spy and an enemy. I first thought was it was “Henry” and look at that I was right. In a lot of things, I am right about some I am not. In this case, I was…..I also knew that it was crazy how Shay told Henry instead of Charlie… like really girl, you trusted Henry over Charlie who’ve been locked away in the same place she been at since she was 18 or was it 19 anyways. I was like really. Then turn out she was a freaking spy too, trying to target Audrey and her clan along with Sophia and her dad! In the end, I was glad she actually told them what happened though, Henry ass lied and set them up to get killed by Travis… I was glad Henry died; I knew something was fishy about him I just couldn’t put my finger on it. It’s a good thing that Sophia dodge that bullet when it came too him. & in the end, Shay saved her kids with the help of her three men’s “Charlie, Rage, and Jonas, but especially Charlie, God he walked through fire to save her and he ended up with second and third-degree burns on his body. I kept thinking to myself “He walking through that fire, like JESUS” but in the end, I was glad that he saved her not only her but her kids Nicky and Mattie. Charlie May have been laidback or whatever but man he was so brave… though Jonas let Travis get away; at least he saved Rafe from dying… what got me was Henry really though Shay was going to run to him and save her I would’ve let him get shot and die too not only that BURN THE HELL UP “like Usher said “even though this might bruise you, Let it burn” but poor Charlie what a brave man. If only Jonas would’ve shot Travis or at least one of his men. But oh well hopefully he dies soon in either book three with Vanessa or book four with Drea. I’m tired of that man already.

•••••Their Bride******Their Bride

Okay, I’m going to be short with this one. Since I don’t have much to say. I will say that it was a bit different from book one and two. It was crazy how Vanessa she ended up with five guys that didn’t even put their name in the box except for Camden. The other four didn’t want that to happen at all. Well, Michael, he didn’t even put his name in the box he just got a box in lol when Riordan stole the box. When I was reading book #2 I was wondering who stolen that box but the thing is in book 2 it only mentioned that Vanessa ended up with ONLY the twins. But in this book, she ended up with all five men. I was glad that they killed that man Jake that tried to hurt Vanessa again I am waiting on Travis to die already that man is so annoying and when he dies I want to know what his army of soldiers going to be doing. But since everyone is in the new area “cavern” or whatever I wonder where Commander at and his daughter are they still in Jake Well’s that’s what I can’t wait to find out in book 4.. with him and Drea, since I don’t think everyone left that place with the homes. Oh btw I was glad Logan got closure with his ex before she died; though the whole time she was in that cavern and dying thinking that Logan was dead and he was at Jake Wells thinking she was dead too.
•••**+Theirs To Defy+**•••Theirs to Defy

This book was good; I’m just going to be really short with this review. Because I was over it; couldn’t wait to finish. But I will say this Drea; is one strong ass female she deserves to be president but UGH! No one has killed Travis yet! Like Gah, Suicide died the guy Shay ran from died… why hasn’t Travis died yet ugh! I hope he finally dies in the book with Eric daughter Sophia because no way that man can be still alive. He wasn’t a true friend to Sophia dad at all…. just pure evil even though he did save Eric and his daughter… but it’s crazy that Eric didn’t see Arnie as he called him an EVIL man when they were in the army. But in the end I am glad; that Drea saved the women from Suicide but in reality are the women saved from Arnie though?… I think not; I still think he has the women trapped while selling them off… I only liked Garrett and Billy… but you look at it she more than so had sex with MOSTLY “Eric; Jonathan and David” barely with Garrett at all, Billy did get in sometimes…
•••***Theirs to Ransom*****••43923495

I’m going to point this out before I get into this review. This book has all five books in it. Not just four… I am wondering why the author didn’t update the description of the book because it’s 5 not 4 stories in this book. WEIRD when an author never updates anything and let the readers know beforehand so they can get the storyline (description of the book)…
Whoosh finally I am finished with this whole collection. Gah, my head was pounding so much. This why I hardly read the box set… Sometimes it’s just too much.
But anyways, I liked this one way better than the one with Drea…

One thing I will say is that Sophia gosh she was so dang stupid to trust Jagger; like I already knew Toby was full of shit… and something was up with Jagger but couldn’t pinpoint what…I was glad that Toby had died in the end. I also knew that Sophia marriage was FAKE as fuck because there wasn’t an actual marriage at all. I wish that Sophia had sex with Finn first and lost her virginity to him. But she gave it to both anus and coochie to Jagger first. But at least it was Finn first time when they had sex on their fake wedding night. & in the end, Sophia finally got the wedding she wanted and everyone was back in Jake Wells or was it, Jacob Wells? Whatever. I’m just glad that freaking dusty dumb Travis DEAD as FUCK by the hands of Sophia and her dad Eric… Yassss…

Book Description: 

In the New Republic, every woman must marry five men.
It’s the law.
Welcome to the apocalypse. 

Theirs to Protect 

Nix never put his name in the marriage raffle for a reason. He doesn’t need a woman. There aren’t that many to go around anyway after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 90% of the female population. He has his job as head of the Security Squadron and it’s all he needs. He looks out for the township. He protects the few women there are left. 

But when his name is called to be one of the five husbands to the woman rescued from the badlands, he doesn’t speak up to correct the error. 
Because Audrey’s like no one he’s ever met before. Fiesty. That’s the name for her. Not like so many of the women they’ve brought back before. She’s not broken. She might be just the woman to handle a rough, brutal man like him. 

Theirs to Pleasure 

Shay came into the township knowing she’d be a lottery bride. 
So she’d have to marry five men. 
She wasn’t the naïve girl she’d been eight years ago. 
She’d learned the lessons that had been beaten into her and she’d learned them well. 
So yes, so she’d share her body with her new husbands. 
But her secrets were still her own. 

The men are different than she expected, though. They each had their own reasons for entering the lottery. There’s Charlie, who’s so sweet and kind. Rafe, who’s a light-hearted jokester during the day but dark and demanding in bed. Then Jonas and Henry and Gabriel, each bringing their own damage and beauty to the clan until, day by day, they begin to feel like a real family. 

There’s just one little problem with the happy new family clan. 

One of them isn’t who he appears to be. 
He is a spy for the enemy. 
Will Shay and the township be doomed before she and her husbands have a chance at lasting happiness? 

Their Bride 

All Vanessa ever wanted was to be loved. 
Okay, strike that—all she wanted was not to die at the hands of the homicidal maniac who was obsessed with hunting her down—and to be loved. 
Was that too much to ask? 

The plan was simple: 
Go to Jacob’s Well. 
Enter herself in the Marriage Raffle. 
After years of barely surviving, finally get her happily ever after. 

But nothing’s ever that simple, is it? 
Turns out she’ll have to fight tooth and nail for her fairytale ending. 
The prize has never been more worth it, though—Five men who love and adore her, and at long last, a home and a family. 
… if she survives to tell the tale. 

Theirs to Defy 

Drea was completely lost except for Eric’s hands cupping her face. Eric’s blue eyes piercing hers. 

“This isn’t a marriage where each of us get a sliver of you. No, baby, that’s not how this is gonna work. 

You have to give every one of us all of you. Pour it all out. Every single drop of yourself and trust that we’ll fill you back up.” 

His stare only grew more intense. “We will never leave you. Never forsake you. 

We are yours until the end of time. 

And baby, you are ours.” 

She defies them at every turn. 

Theirs to Ransom

She was always Daddy’s little princess. They’re vicious outlaws. Now she’s theirs, and they’re not going to let her go without a fight. 

Sophia Wolford’s always looked at the world as if the glass is half full. Even after the Apocalypse. What’s the point of focusing on the negative, after all, when you need to get busy rebuilding the world? 

Finn Knight sees things differently, however. His motto is: Trust no one and always suspect the worst. 

Not surprisingly, Sophia and Finn get along like oil and water. 

When Sophia sees an opportunity to save not only Jacob’s Well, but the entire country which is on the brink of war, however, Finn is the only person who can help her. 

Sophia gets a lot more than she bargained for, though, when she heads into the wilds of New Mexico and offers herself as a Raffle Bride. 

She discovers too late that her new husbands might not have the most honorable intentions. Will she and Finn be able to find a way to save themselves in time, much less the Republic?

Book Review: 

****•There’s a lot of spoilers throughout this review; so beware ******•••

I don’t know how many times I want to smack the shit out of Sasha ass because Taylor was so disrespectful to her and mean! & when he comes around or call she go running. Gah! She reminds me of two stupid females in my family! I felt like Taylor could’ve gotten over his hurt with his ex-girlfriend that died; they were teenagers then; he’s 20 years old now. But instead, he tends to push his friend Micah away and even disrespected his girlfriend and punched Micah… I only felt that Calvin just deserved that SMACKDOWN! But I believe that Taylor could’ve told his friends minus Calvin the reason behind why he acts the way he does. I think he could’ve trusted Micah, Sasha, and Ethan but he was an asshole a BIG one at that. I never knew he was going through what he was going through when I was reading the book with his best friend Micah and Veronica.. but for him to go out a mess around with girls, so he doesn’t dream of Reese and fall in love, so he doesn’t forget her is ridiculous. Because I felt like you will always have that person in your memory even when they are gone. But I still wanted to punch him in his throat and also wanted to smack Sasha… because he makes me sick for not going home more (but I understand) and pushing his main friends away Micah and Sasha. & Sasha for being dumb as heck for running every time he said JUMP. I felt like when he says jump she says how HIGH … it got on my nerves so bad that I just kept rolling my eyes. I was with her sister Felecia on that. Because I wanted Sasha to diss him or don’t speak to him to show him how she felt and even go on a date with Ian to show him she could do better; since he wasn’t over Reese.

But hearing him tell Sasha the story between him and Reese so sad, it even gave me little tears to my eyes especially with Reese being pregnant when she died. Gah! Such a tragic story sheesh! Like I said I understood why he didn’t want to tell anyone because he blames himself, but I’m glad he finally told Sasha what happened. But I also realized why no one blames him either; you look at it honestly wasn’t his fault that he gotten hurt and she died. I think that it helped Taylor in so many ways to get out everything that he was feeling inside of him when he came back well more came to Sasha apartment to talk to her. Because I think they would have a relationship if he didn’t try to fix himself especially when he actually wants to be with her but doesn’t know how but especially when he doesn’t want to forget Reese. Which I think ridiculous; because you’ll always remember a loved one. REGARDLESS. This story was so different and sadder than any of the books to this series. Like sheesh! Talk about sad; pain in the ass; annoying all in one.

I always thought that Taylor should’ve let Sasha go until he figures his crap out within himself. Instead of stringing her along. More feelings get hurt by doing that. I felt terrible for Sasha because I knew she wanted more from Taylor and he couldn’t give it to her at that time. I thought a little bit of therapy would’ve continued helping him too. & in the end, I’m glad Sasha told him that needed to figure things out. I was like yasss girl! I think that with Reece brother AJ talking to him and his talks with Reece help him get a lot of reinsurance (don’t think that’s the word but whatever). But I think that is what Taylor needed that push; he gained that understanding with AJ… I was like if he doesn’t finally admit and get his woman. I’m a smack him to North Dakota. I wanted to smack him to North Dakota too especially at that flipping supper Market. Damn he got on my last damn nerves in this book. Now I’m not even mad at him 😂 when I realize Celery McGiggles is that girl Claire he trains at the new gym he works at…

She (Sasha) did him on him (Taylor) damn it’s so funny 😂 , but it’s sad at the same time. Like the same way he pushes her away she’s doing it right back. I’m here like yasss girl pay him back. But I feel so bad for him even though he got on my nerves that wanted to body slam him a few times throughout the book. But dang poor boy; I want to say he was going to “cry on his home” or when he “get home”…
When Tara ask was Sasha eating eggs I’m like don’t tell me pregnant… but then that’s not it; I want to smack for doing that to him too. Because he was coming there to get Sasha back ugh these two irk my nerves. But couldn’t stop reading until the end! Wishing they hurry up and be together with their annoying selves. & in the end, I am like about flipping time f*ck!!! … but I have to agree Taylor would’ve made a great dad too especially how he is with Ashley, Ethan daughter. It cracked me up when Taylor had to tell her Sasha wasn’t his girlfriend & she didn’t want Sasha close. Priceless… this book was good & I wasn’t disappointed. May as well said I read it in one day…
***“I’ll always thank you, Sasha, because I don’t know that I’d be where I am now if it wasn’t for you. I know I’ve told you before, but every piece of my heart that I have left is yours. I love you.**** <<< one part of this book I like because this is true; if it wasn’t for Sasha he still is pitiful drowning in his pain & shutting people out. I’m glad he made up with Micah too. He only had two real friends anyways that was Micah and Ethan. I saw that throughout the book.

Book Description: 

Everything can change in an instant.

They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone, but the truth is, sometimes you know exactly what you have. And when it’s gone, you start to fade away, too.

Taylor Hopkins knows this firsthand. For the past couple of years, he’s focused on only three things: college, working out, and girls. School to focus on the future and forget the past. Exercising to zone out and clear his mind. And girls for all of the above. Then Sasha falls into his life …

Sasha Williams loves to cook. Skipping her second year of college to work under a head chef and owner of a restaurant was an opportunity she couldn’t pass up. After yet another breakup with a guy still hung up on his ex, she decides a night out is the perfect thing to wash away recent memories, and make sure her focus is on cooking. Of course, it doesn’t help that meeting Taylor, and a subsequent deal between them, turns into something she never thought she’d face.

While trying to break down walls, Taylor and Sasha work to come to terms with a future between them. But can you build a future on a foundation that continues to crumble away?

Piece by Piece is the fifth book in the Rumor Has It series and can be read as a stand-alone.

Book Review: 

It was a very disappointing feeling when I realize that George and Laurie got together 😂😂 I was so for Meghan because I assume she wanted George!!!! Maybe, she still does, who knows.

•*** Spoilers; throughout this review••***

Okay, this is so weird! Amazon has this book set as “Second Chance” whereas on Goodreads it set as “High School Dropout”… & both have different cover photos which are weird too.
With that being said….. I was glad George was there to pick up Laurie because that person was waiting for her to leave that shelter… especially when it was waiting for Laurie to walk past. Then also be at her house too, 9 out of 10 it could be that art teacher she has that weird feeling about. I understand those feelings because I get different vibes from people you can’t trust…
Also, it sucks what everyone is doing, or how they are treating Laurie at school! Like they don’t know what she was going to in the hands of her uncle I was made at her in book 1 with Matt, Kristen (ex, George) because they both set Kristen up to die… but if it wasn’t for Laurie in both scenarios (her being set up) and (Laurie saving her (Kristen) …. Kristen wouldn’t have been in that situation, to begin with, but in the end, Laurie went to save her along with Matt…. but ONLY Kristen and Matt sees what she did, which sucks but I think she’ll come out stronger in the end. You’ll know who your friends are once something goes bad for you…..
As I am getting further into this book; there’s so much that both George and Laurie relate to each other. When they were in that cabin; it sucks how his brother died. I feel sorry for George because you can tell he was going through so much! When his brother committed suicide over what his dad kept demanding of him… this happens in real life with parents demanding kids to get perfect grades… you can’t do that to kids it’s can be hard on them… I will never demand my kid to get perfect grades. It’s best to tell them to do their best (you can only do the best that you can)!!!
I was glad in this story I have gotten to understand George more and why he did the things that he did… I don’t think he was able to talk to others and he did with Laurie… they both need each other in this scenario.

In the end, I am glad Rose realize Jack wasn’t the one for her and Jack got what he deserved when he did that to Laurie. Knowing darn well she didn’t want him. Glad that George, came to her rescue to have her back. If it wasn’t for Kristen, I don’t think no one would be friends with her. But now she has Kristen, Rose, Michelle, Jules, George, and Matt. That’s all she needs. I currently don’t even like Meghan, but I still want to know what her issue was.
I am glad that they well Sebastian gotten adopted and found the money; you know one thing about a dog they are very good at finding things. If Laurie adopted Sebastian, I don’t think they would’ve found that money and those evil men would’ve still been after them. Glad in the end everything turns out good for both her and George and Sebastian didn’t die…

Book Description: 

Coming back to face everyone she betrayed at Forest Ridge High is hard enough, but when her heart longs for the one she betrayed the most, she knows she’s in for a tough year.

Laurie never wanted to hurt anyone, but when her uncle’s last scheme destroys the future of the only guy she’s ever liked, she knows the chances of him ever her returning her feelings are almost nonexistent. If she could only convince her heart of that and move on she’d be much happier, but the heart wants what the heart wants. When George comes to her rescue time after time she starts to wonder if maybe he doesn’t feel something more for her than hate.

The past catches up with them, throwing them together in a dangerous situation, and they finally have a chance to lay all their cards on the table. Is it possible their secrets will bring them closer together or will they tear them apart forever?
