Book Review:

Outside the lines?! Hmm 🤔 

This book was good.

•••Wait hold up may be some spoilers in it.•••

So like I said it might be spoilers in this book; depends on what I’m thinking while typing up this review. I know that I liked this book it was pretty good; the description of the book gave that away. But anyways, I would like to the point out that I’ve read a few of Emily Goodwin books; and I want to say that Ben lasted way longer than the other dudes during sex. 😂😂😂😂😂😂 I just had to say that because usually when I am reading books. The kissing and licking and talking are to dang long and the sex parts are like 2 minutes 😂 just a blink of an eye.

So with that being said; I like how Ben didn’t care that Felicia was a nerd and weird; he loved her regardless. That made Mindy so jealous and wanted what Felicia had. Though they did sex a few times; that is not what he wanted. Mindy was the devil she was pure evil. I think she was jealous of Felicia in high school and as an adult. She was so bitter; it was ridiculous and she tried to clown Felicia a few times, but no one didn’t care what she (Mindy) thought and wasn’t on her side. Even though, her sister gave those side glances. I bet Mindy believed that Ben would leave Felicia but got fool when she found out they were together. I bet she left her husband so that she could be with Ben. But in the end; Felicia got the man. I did thought she was going to be pregnant half towards the end, but it never happened oh well.

Book Description: 

Alternate Cover Edition: ASIN: B017T2AQ4G

A standalone romantic comedy from NYT Bestselling Author Emily Goodwin

Nerd. Geek. Loser.

Words spoken to me on a daily basis. Words that used to hurt me, but have lost their power. I’ve embraced who I am, and if science fiction and gaming makes me uncool, well then I don’t wanna be.

So when a talk, dark and handsome stranger runs into me—literally—at a coffee shop and spills my iced mocha down the front of my shirt, I assume he’ll laugh it off, not ask me out on a date that I politely decline. When things seem too good to be true, they usually are. Because Ben has it all. Good looks. A job as killer as his abs. Great hair and great skills in bed. There’s no way someone like him can be interested in someone like me.

Ulterior motives? Probably. Professional stalker? Most likely. Why else would he be interested? Yet when we see each other again, there’s an attraction I can’t deny. I might be taping my very own “kick me” sign on my back when I agree to go out with him. My dream guy, interested in me for real?

Because guys like Ben don’t fall for girls like me.

Book Review:

This book was really good and interesting!

¥¥¥••••********So, with that beginning, said there are a couple of irritated spoilers in this review, lol!********•••••¥¥¥</
This girl was so dumb like who in their right mind would let there best friend and boyfriend live with them. Not only that; let them work together in the same place. You can’t trust; everybody, not family, definitely not your friend; it’s only a REAL trustworthy friend who wouldn’t fool around with their friend boyfriend smh; Ananda was so trusting; like dang girl! It was signs there, and she realizes that once Sasha told her; even before Sasha told Ananda I kind of no I was 100% sure Logan was cheating on her with Kenna or whatever her name is that I don’t care to remember. But; Logan and his parents better not be mad when Ananda get it, Carter. I bet he’ll treat her better than Logan would brother or not!

Lmao, Ananda sister I love her. 😂 That song she made about Ananda ex-best friend. Priceless…

Logan, he changed Ananda; more she was a different person than who she truly was. Whereas, Carter didn’t change her; she was more herself with him. He brought out the better in her whereas Logan didn’t. She didn’t have that fire and sparked that she has to Carter then she did with Logan.

Logan is made for Kenna; both crap pot. But it looks like she changes Logan… Kenna probably was always evil and dirty. Ananda was more of a friend to her than she was to Ananda…
The crazy thing is my name is “Cassandra” lmao and the crap her sister done to Logan and Kenna. Is how I am towards my sister boyfriend. 😂 I don’t play about my family.
But I’m still p*** off at Carter for what he did to Ananda no matter if it was a prank or not. I was mad that he let his bean-pie head *** mom get in his head to run off Ananda and even his dad just because he bangs his wife. Like ugh, that had me hot! But glad in the end he learned what a mistake it was, and he went after Ananda and got his woman back. Though, I want to smack him silly. This book was a 5-star rating; I still can’t stand Kenna, his parents (his stepdad Philip) not Wulf and his brother Logan; who couldn’t stand up to his parents and be a real man to be his TRUE self. Glad, in the end, Ananda didn’t become back friends with Kenna after there talk.

Book Description: 

Logan Dane. 
The beautiful boy I had a crush on. The handsome and successful man I was engaged to. The butthead that broke my heart. 

Carter Dane. 
He turned my entire high school experience into a game of chicken. He gave good banter and was sexy as hell. Not that I noticed. 

Two brothers, different as night and day. I thought I loved one and hated the other. Until a series of clichéd events happened, and lines were crossed and previous perceptions got turned on their head. 

Carter Dane. He’s my boyfriend’s brother. He’s also my best enemy.

Book Review: 

Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️

Let me say this I knew Kristen was going to be mad annoying…

•••• wait before I get into what I got to say; there’s going to be a lot or a few spoilers in my review•••***

So anyways I knew she was annoying because, for one thing, she was mad dumb; naive little girl; due to the fact she let “George” do mean things to her, and not only that use her as a pond in the game him, and Laurie was playing. Instead of her dumb self removing herself from the situation; she kept herself there smh; for these men to come after her like you can’t be that stupid; then get scared; when you find out more truth; then the final truth when the game about to start. I just had to roll my eyes. Because In the beginning, I knew Laurie was up to no good; she ’s not any friend instead of keeping Kristen away from trouble (her uncle) she leads this naive girl into a lion dean. Smh; I hope in the end Matt be there for this girl because lord she’s not smart when it comes to a lot of things; there were so many signs in this book and the signs she was receiving from both George and Laurie; even seen the signs at the mall. She got a peanut brain. It’s crazy how she was that dumb smh. Not to figure out that something wasn’t right. Kristen was so concerned with George getting hurt not realizing both he and Laurie was setting her up to possibly getting hurt or killed. You could tell by the way the author wrote this book; she made Kristen naive and not bright; that’s the whole point of the book to make it more interesting to see what happens next. But; I just wanted to shake Kristen her friend Michelle, and even Matt was smarter then Kristen. Then looked dumb scared when she learned the truth 😂😂😂 I’m like girrrrrl this could’ve been avoided if you broke up with the meat-head….. heck Even Danny didn’t like George; that should’ve told her something. 😂 Towards the end though; I was ready for it to be over with already. These are the hands I would like to use for both George and Laurie 👋👋👋👋 (slaps-two hands-same time) for making that girl Kristen scared to death and scared that something may happen to her.

But I did sort felt bad for Laurie though, because she could’ve threatened her if she didn’t go along with his plan. I hope she did save enough actually to get away from her uncle. Hopefully, the police find her uncle Melvin in the end so he won’t try to hurt Kristen and even Laurie. Her uncle seems like trash for using teens and harming or killing them; like he did the last quarterback. That freaking George I still don’t feel bad, because he knew it could’ve turned bad he didn’t listen. Would’ve been worse if Matt wasn’t there to save Kristen; I was so glad he was because as I was reading and reading about the knifed and he the guy coming toward Kristen I’m like where’s Matt… At least Laurie tried to save her. But she disappears fast 💨 as heck lol. Like poof and she’s gone…. but glad in the end; It was a happy ending.

Book Review:

How about a door down from Abi

***** Oh I pointed out a lot in this book, so be aware of the spoilers because its a lot.****
I was like if Denise comes for her, she better go for that neck. Just by reading this you could tell Denise never liked Abigail. Abi ass kept getting on my last nerve. I know that for sure. Throughout the book from chapter one to chapter thirty-two, she kept saying she was fat; I just kept rolling my eyes, because I am like lord girl shut up already, just exercise and lose the weight so you can be “skinny” … I hate when people who are heavy, medium size or whatever complain about their weight when they can exercise to lose it and eat healthier. Hell skinny people have it hard to especially if they are trying to gain weight. Both are the same people going to talk about your weight size and bullying you no matter if you are FAT or SKINNY… smh! One size is never better than the other; we all need to eat healthily.
But Abi ass also got on my nerves when it came to Jon; Evan liked her and taken her on dates etc., but Jon hasn’t done any of those things that Evan did. He even pushed her on Evan, by saying he liked her. Where all she thought about “Jon; Jon; Jon;” and I’m here like girl, please shut up about Jon. It got on nerves because I felt as though she needed him out her system like seriously; she brushes her off for Bean – pie head ass Denise and haven’t asked her out nor spend time with her even for his brother. I’m waiting on his wack self to diss Denise and actually be there and care about Abi like he is to him may as well say she loves him. Even his parents and her grandmother want them together. Took them fives years sixty-eight days to say they like each other; well him liking her! NOT!!!!!

“Your ‘friend’? You told me you only hang out with her because your mom said you too!” This exact quote irks me because he wasn’t her true friend if he lied to his “girlfriend” about who she is to him. I could smack him to the other side of Mexico. Knowing Abi, her tail still is obsessed and care about him even after the fact that he told Bean pie head I mean “Denise.”

I didn’t even felt bad for Jon when he came to Abi to apologize and quoted to Abi “I got so lost in having a relationship and not wanting to hurt her feelings that I forgot about my feelings—and I guess about yours too.” I would’ve been petty, saying Cee-Lo song “FUCK YOU” even though I’m crying and dying inside.. probably throwing darts at his picture lol. I was glad she brushes him off. Because he been doing that to her a lot especially around pinhead… glad they broke up; funny it took him long enough to realize his dumb mistakes… chapter thirty-two to realize smh!

It’s good to know Jon loves Abi wanted thirty-eight years (chapter 38) to tell her 😂😂 he could’ve been in chapter 20, or when he started dating Denise ass. 🙄🙄🙄
But forgiveness “It means forgiving others and yourself so you can live the kind of life you want.” is the key to a lot of things I already knew she was going to forgive Jon. I think he was just scared. Brained washed when started dating Denise though he says “I had to make you like me, I wanted to spend time with you, any chance I could. I told Denise that my mom was making me hang out with you because she was jealous, and it was the only thing I thought she would understand.” “Not that it was okay to lie, I just… got lost in it all.”

I just wished Jon would’ve told her from the start instead of running from LOVE blah! It’s good to know that Abi finally came to love herself and she stopped her running from things too especially with the situation with her parents. Her moving away from that toxic to end up moving with her G’ma be with those who loved her and cared about her and her well being. I’ll give this book a 4 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ even though Abi on my nerves throughout the whole chapter except chapters thirty-seven thirty-eight maybe thirty-six too.

It’s the first day at my new school and I already have a wide load sticker on my back. 

But this is still better than life was before. Before I was taken away from my parents. Before I moved in with my grandma. 

Before I met Jon Scoller.

He’s cute, he lives down the street, but the guy asks way too many questions. Questions about a past I’d rather forget. 

And I am not his type. He needs to be with a cheerleader. A perfect girl. Someone who doesn’t look like the before picture for a weight loss shake.

Jon makes me feel like I’m more than a number on the scale, but I’m starting to wonder: does he feel the same way or does he just feel sorry for me?

Book Review:

Mkay, I thought both Cain and Harper was good for each other, But God his name reminds me of the Ken doll, and some author name in a movie I can’t think of.

••• Just a few little spoilers throughout •••**

I was so aiming for Harper not to give Cain her V Card before she found out that she was competition and was placed as the tenth girl. But throughout him trying to rear her in to get what he wanted he (Cain) fell for her hard. Then he didn’t care about that competition that he made when he and his friends were a freshman. All he cared about was Harper; you could tell he cared for her after a while because. She even gave me the opportunity to take her V card, but he didn’t he pleased her differently. He wanted to take his time and be with her. But his friends ruined it for him. Though; I think if he would’ve told Harper about the competition they wouldn’t have broken up. Harper had a right to be mad at him. I hope that though he will go to college, he finished out his degree at the college. Because 9/10 most athletes don’t complete a degree then end up hurt with no backup plan.. but in the end, It was a cute story, glad it ended with a happy ending…

Book Description: 

Never play a game you can’t win.

For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls … his charm-laced ego may just be bigger than Texas itself.

The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more to go, and then it’s off to college fame and eventually, the big time. Attachments aren’t something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is piqued. She would be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.

Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body, especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft side are dangerous to her heart. She’s seen men ruin her mother’s dreams time and again, and she’s determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma in her fist.

But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?

Harper is the one girl who isn’t up for playing games. And she just might make Cain lose. Everything.

Almost finished reading “Side Hustle” by @authoremilygoodwin the third book to the “Dawson Family Series” … I like this story better; I already knew once I start it wouldn’t take me long to finish. I’m going to give it by Sunday-Monday when I’m done. But, in my mind, I keep thinking Wes will find out she’s a con-artist, or his ex-wife going to show up. 🥴😱🤦🏽‍♀️ Btw that, I’m hoping the author writes a story on Archer brother Bobby and Wes, twin brothers Owen and Logan.

Book Review:

Awesome book glad Wes found love in Scarlet

**••There may be a few spoilers in this review••**

I wish Scarlet would have told Wes what Daisy did, blackmailed her. I cannot stand that hoe cunt-bitch! I believe that Scarlet did that conning stuff to help her dad who was sick. It’s understandable but definitely wrong; she realizes that once she met Wes, his son and their family. It changed who she was. And here comes Daisy bean pie-head *** ruining stuff. For both Scarlet, Wes, and Jackson. I wish I can slap her through the phone.
I was that he listened to his brother and went to Chicago to get his women. I was like yasss Weston  F*** your “B” of ex-wife … with her CUNT ***. I felt that Scarlet, is a way better mom than Daisy would ever be to Jackson; and she is a better wife too. Not only that his family LOVES her too, they just need to get rid of KARA first.

Ugh, Dean needs to get rid of Kara. Literally, she’s no good for him. He shouldn’t have married her. There were a lot of signs there; before he asked her to marry him. If everyone thinks she can be a “B,”, it’s time to say poof “B” be gone 👋🏽 … she’s a cunt like Daisy was. Hopefully, it is a book about Dean 😂😂😂 he definitely doesn’t need Kara toxic ass in his life. Who complains about a dishwasher .. gah she’s such twot.

I keep thinking that Scarlet could ask Wes to help with the situation with her father. Move him to Eastwood so that he could better treatment and proper care. I don’t know about her sister; it’s because of her big ass mouth is what ruin everything. Like she is mad stupid you never know who knows who in prison; you can’t just go running your mouth to anybody. Daisy Duck-*** trying to kidnap Jackson; smh I was glad that Owen recorded everything. I’ve waited on that divorce too …. it was well overdue. Now if Dean can get one I’m a be HAPPY (Pharrell voice). 😂😂😂 And look at that she skips town again; wow, go figure she (Daisy) didn’t change she ONLY wanted to ruin Wes life again by trying to get rid of Scarlet and it didn’t work what a fool she was. This book to this series was GREAT definitely a 5-star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read. I would definitely recommend this book. Will always say, read a series in order because you’ll be confused. The good news was, in the end, they moved her father to Eastwood Senior Care Center with better treatment and care. Not having enough staff at the old care center wasn’t work gladly it’s better for him since he’s moved. The end was so cute when he asked Scarlet to marry him. Then get married on Valentine’s Day; got what they (including Jackson) wanted with each other a “baby” she was pregnant. That’s a blessing.

P.S. I was glad her sister turned her life around once she has gotten out of jail.

But instead of pulling up to their million-dollar estate, she finds herself on the front porch of a humble farmhouse, looking into the eyes of dark and brooding single dad, Weston Dawson. It’s bad enough that Weston doesn’t have a fortune to charm out of him, but he’s also a cop.

Book Review: 

GREAT BOOK 

••••Spoilers through this book••••

This book. No wait, part two of this book was good. I enjoyed it and glad that it ended with a happy ending. I will say I couldn’t stand Kara, Quinn brother Dean wife. She was mad annoying; acting like Quinn pregnancy was a big problem when it came to her wedding. She was so bitchy, over everything that Involved Quinn; I wish Dean shut her up; and tell her about herself. Especially When it came to his sister. I also didn’t like that fact that Quinn was being whiny about every little thing, but couldn’t be too mad at her about it because she was pregnant. Though, I was glad when both her and Archer wanted to move to Eastwood. I was glad too because that’s where I wanted them to end up at. Especially since Archer family was moving there also. But, since Archer family moved to Eastwood. I am wondering if the author is going to make a story about Archer brother Bobby because I am hoping turns himself around and changes his ways and meets a nice girl. Like I want him to prove everyone wrong; to show them he can be his old self again.” #Letsjustpray the author makes a story about Archer brother to see if he did make a change. Good book though, this one was a 5 star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

There are only three things Mackenzie Brown looks forward to on a Friday night: cheesy romcoms, mani-pedi and a quiet sleepover with her friends.

Then Comes Marriage by Emily Goodwin (Author)

Here I am reading another book by Emily Goodwin called “Then Comes Marriage”. I’m 27% done with this book. I’m here rolling my eyes, like, “I’m so over this girl crying, I’m on chapter 9, and I’m over it. I’m hoping by chapter 15. She doesn’t cry anymore, she needs to find her a new man *cough* Derek, and get over shrimp dick Travis. Though, she called him “Dick Muffin” while I called him “Shrimp Dick”. He likes peasant …. and he rude, and men. Blah!!! Good book though.. 🤷🏽‍♀️⭐️ Oh by the way this book is about Rachel whereas “First Comes LOVE” is about her friend Lauren; though I think it’s best to READ first comes “love” then this one first comes “marriage” since Lauren and Noah are mentioned in this one…

*****FEW SPOILERS MIGHT BE MENTION SO BE AWARE***

Here I am reading another book by Emily Goodwin called “Then Comes Marriage.” I’m 27% done with this book. I’m here rolling my eyes, like, “I’m so over this girl crying, I’m on chapter 9, and I’m over it. I’m hoping by chapter 15. She doesn’t cry anymore, she needs to find her a new man *cough* Derek, and get over shrimp dick Travis. Though, she called him “Dick Muffin” while I called him “Shrimp Dick.” He likes peasant …. and he rude, and men. Blah!!! Good book though…

I was glad when Rachel moved on to Derek; because Travis; wasn’t worth crap, he proves that when he brought himself to their honeymoon aka now Vacation (as Rachel called it) to win her back. But when he couldn’t, he disrespected Rachel and called her out of her name. You can learn someone true colors once you date them. They end up, showing you who they truly are. Travis did that and Derek was right there to pick her up to make her happy. I liked how he didn’t change who Rachel was and didn’t think she was weird as Travis made it seem like she was. I agree with Derek “weird” is better . I AM WEIRD MYSELF. To me, BEING WEIRD is so much better.

I like in the end they end up together, got engaged went back to Hawaii for their honeymoon then gotten married, and Rachel gave Derek what he always wanted a BABY. That made me excited 😀

If you want to read this book is about Rachel whereas “First Comes Love” is about her friend Lauren; though I think it’s best to READ first comes “love” then this one first comes “marriage” since Lauren and Noah are mentioned in this one.

Book Description: 

Fall in love—check.
Get engaged and plan a perfect wedding—check and check.
Find my fiancé with another woman—I never thought I’d check that off the list, yet here I am, putting a giant “X” in that box just months before we take our sacred vows.

Along with recovering from a broken heart, I’m left with the mess of canceling all things wedding. The venue gave me the deposit back. The florist canceled my order with no charge. The resort we booked for the honeymoon—yeah, they’re not giving me a dime. But I’ll be damned if I throw away a chance to spend two weeks in a tropical paradise, lounging on the beach with a drink in my hand, looking for anything but love.

When I see Derek Turner—a sexy homicide detective I’ve run into a few times before—walking along the beach, I’m not sure if he’s stalking me or if it’s fate. Dark and brooding with a past he refuses to talk about, Derek is the last thing I need…and is exactly what I want.

But when what started off as a rebound turns into something more, something neither of us can deny, I’m left with love’s greatest irony: finding the right person at the worst possible time.

Then Comes Marriage is a full-length, standalone novel.

Book Review:

First comes love, baby and then marriage

•••• Spoilers here and there•••••

Okay, I did enjoy this book. I am never the one to be disappointed in reading Emily Goodwin books. She always keeps my interest in her books. I like how both Lauren and Noah got together no matter what “her” family thought of Noah. I felt they all judge him including Lauren; thinking he was going to be the same as he was as a teenager. But in reality, a lot of people change when they have a kid, and you can tell by reading this book; that being with Lauren and having a kid with her changed Noah, and he turns out not like his father. He definitely was good for her; she for him.

Book Description:

First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a—

Hold up. You’re joking right? As if life works off a neat little list like that, moving down, checking things off before jumping to the next task. We’re not married. We’re not lovers. Hell, we’re hardly even friends. Noah Wilson isn’t exactly “life partner” material, and he sure as hell isn’t “father material”. He’s my older brother’s best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over ten years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I’ve had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about.

Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah’s rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one night stand.

This isn’t a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn’t go according to plan.
