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:

Royal 👑 and Demi 🖤

In this book, I feel like the author is dragging this storyline with Royal.

Spoilers…… after this……

I feel like she is dragging this storyline for no reason at all. I want to know what in the world he did that was supposed to be so bad. And I am at 75% in this book, and I already know by 80% no that’s probably a lie almost to the end probably 95% that’s when she (Demi) going to either find out by Pandora or Royal why he went to jail. And she will end up mad at him, because of the bad thing that he did that lead him to be put in prison at the age of 19 by his sister and her boyfriend? I assume. Then after she finds out, he’s going to chase her to get her back, and in the end, she’s going to forgive Royal they both going to live happily ever after. Mind you this same situation happen in the other two books I read lol with the Amato Brothers. I bet 100% that’s what’s going to happen and towards the ending everyone going to find out that Brooks( with his hideous name) and his baby mama whatever her name is that’s not important which though I believe it is Afron) shoot that name hideous too. Is going to get into trouble with the law Brooks going to end up in jail or paying for fraud or probably end up doing both jail time for fraud with credit cards because you know people actually go to prison for fraud. Plus, with Demi brother and dad an attorney man Brooks have no chance at all. That loser guy did her dirty, he literally used that girl, I am here to see who done Demi wrong worse between Brooks and Royal., my aim is towards Brooks. But I am not sure what Royal did I swear I think it’s rape, but I could be wrong I know once I actually get towards the end when this girl FINALLY learns the truth sheesh!

__________________________________

Review story;

This book was really good it didn’t take me long to read, towards the beginning well middle of the book. I too believe Royal when he told Demi the truth about Brooks cheating ways then she found out like at between 60% to 70% plus towards the end. That, no she found out that Brooks did cheat, on her with Afron and was putting credit cards in her name, man that’s so messed up. It doesn’t make no sense. I felt that Brooks got his ways from his mother especially since his mom was REAL fake towards Demi once her son fake boohoo about Demi left him when he was the one left her when the accident happen. I’m here like this a book but boy if you don’t get on somewhere.

Plus, as I gotten to like 80% or was it 89% well anyway it was in the eighties. When Demi found out that Royal went to jail and was accused of being a sex offender. Which I kind we’ll not think of but knew before even getting to that part that Royal was accused of rape not only rape but prob rape his sister and man was I right smh. The crazy thing is how everyone assumes he done it when they didn’t even consider looking at the man Rick at all, not once smh. It’s a lot of innocent people in jail because the law doesn’t look into anything they will throw u under the jail without thinking twice about it. But I’m also glad that Demi family forgave Royal and that she didn’t believe that he didn’t do it heck even I knew that myself. And that pandora girl I figured she was going to be the one to tell Demi before Royal did. He was taking to long anyway.

P.S. I also knew Demi was going to end up pregnant at the end lol! Beckett is her son name. Now I know that Dante woman some is that name I don’t even understand why another kid names that hideous name from another book by the author but who am I to judge lol. Oh god, and the sister name is Campbell god I’m weak.

Btw: even though these names are hideous most of weird and hilarious. I like how the author gave her characters weird names, but I love some pretty names too but lord lol! But Demetria and Royal’s names are great names there Kids’s not so much lol! I wish her ex Brooks could’ve seen how happy she was minus his bimbo self not precisely the person Everybody in the community thought he was ha.!

Book Description:

His name is Royal, but he’s no prince charming. He’s not even a prince – though you could say I loved him once upon a time.

He was my older brother’s best friend.

Growing up, he sat at our dinner table every Sunday, teased me mercilessly, and pretended I annoyed him.

When I was old enough, he took me on my first date.

Royal taught me how to drive. Escorted me to my junior prom. Gave me my first kiss…amongst other things. He was my first taste of toe-curling, all-consuming, can’t-sleep love.

We had our whole lives ahead of us. There was never anyone else for me but him.

And then he disappeared. No letter. No explanation. Not even a goodbye.

My sisters and brother never forgave him, and my parents forbade me from speaking his name in our house ever again. For all intents and purposes, we were to pretend Royal Lockhart never existed.

I’ve spent the last seven years trying in vain to forget my first love, but just when I think I’ve finally moved on, guess who’s back in town?

Book Review:

Reckless at its finest but reckless for her and she for him 

Part 2 was even good as book 1.

Spoilers…

I am glad I actually have gotten around to reading this author book, and I love when an author pulls you in from the beginning to end. Once you read their books, it makes you not want to put it down and say up or continue reading it without any interruptions.

I enjoyed Dante and Maren story even though he was younger than her I thought they were cute together. Plus he’s not even that young in my opinion age is nothing but a number if they are 18 and you should be good, but if you are in your thirties, you shouldn’t date a 21-year-old lmao.

It’s funny how karma works see how both Lauren, Dante ex-fiancé and Maren ex-husband left them for each other and In the end, they didn’t last but Dante and Maren actually have a good relationship, and her children loved Dante, and they married and had a daughter. Where both of there ex-split up and didn’t end up married. Ha!

Book Description:

It was just a party. A silly little celebration with champagne and my best friends. As I blew out the candles on my divorce cake, I said goodbye to my failed marriage and embraced my future with open arms.

But I didn’t know the future was going to come in the form of a mysterious stranger sitting at the end of the bar stealing glances all night.

And I didn’t know at the time, but my future even had a name . . . Dante Amato.

Over the weeks that followed, he pursued me with reckless abandon. He broke down my walls and ignored all the reasons we were completely wrong for each other. He made me feel something I hadn’t felt in years . . . something so real it terrified me.

But the moment I let him in . . . just when I began to let myself fall for this dashing stranger . . . he dropped a bombshell that changed everything.

AUTHOR’S NOTES:

1. This is a *full-length,* standalone romance. You do *not* need to read HEARTLESS first.

2. For a limited time, I’ve included a FREE copy of FILTHY (RIXTON FALLS #3) because it’s somewhat of a prequel to my next book, which will be an AMATO BROTHERS x RIXTON FALLS crossover (short preview included)! 🙂

3. Because of the bonus story and preview, RECKLESS may end just before 50% on your Kindle, however, rest assured it is a *full-length* novel.

Book Review:

Listen to this on audible!

Um, I can’t finish this book it’s boring for some reason. The women narrator made it hard to listen to I wanted so bad to finish it but she made it boring more than it was. Jeremy was good. I hope she doesn’t use this lady again so not worth listening to her. She sounded tired, and voice was eh plus read sort of fast.

I wanted to so bad to listen to it I may have to get it on ebook. Because I cannot listen to it on audible ugh!

Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be?

In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he’s an incurable romantic with an XL heart, and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

So it makes complete sense that Violet Hall can’t wait to nail him down to the matrimonial mattress and become Mrs. Violet Waters.

It’s so romantic.

Violet is totally stoked to set a date.

Eventually. At some point. Likely before the next millennium. Or when Violet stops getting hives every time someone brings up the wedding, and their mothers stop colluding on stadium sized venues. Whichever comes first.
