Magnolia Lake by Emily Paige Skeen

I’m actually reading two books. This is the second book I started on. I’m almost finish it. I’ll go back to the first book I was reading after I’m done with this one. It’s been a pretty good book, even though I think this girl Cora is stupid when it comes to her best friend Landon.

Book Review:

Spoilers? There’s a possibility it’ll be a bunch splash here and there if not it’ll be less.

This book was even though I thought Cora was very stubborn and didn’t see the way Landon felt about her. When her family and friends knew how he felt. Even Rex knew that she had a thing for Landon, she didn’t figure it out until Prom night. Which I thought was a good thing, because I was like finally.

They got together after everything Landon proved and showed her how he felt. Not only that, what I came to realize before the tragedy happened to Cora when she got kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend Jeff was she was very oblivious to a lot of things, but she also was very gullible. She didn’t see or believe in a lot of things that others saw. I mean very naïve too. Just like when Landon told her she needed to go to the cops when he found out about the bruise on her own, Jeff left after he grabbed her without her permission.

She assumes that Jeff wasn’t going to do anything. Until he did. Which lead to her getting kidnapped at the mall. Was in Jeff’s family barn for ten days. I felt so bad for her because he had an obsession with that girl. I was like he needs to realize that when someone doesn’t love you, “let it go.”

Like he cheated on her with her best friend Lacey and then tried getting her back. On to apologizing, then since that didn’t work for him, he started to stalk her every move, which was by far scary as heck like jheeze Louise. I was glad when Landon came to her rescue (as always) since he cared for and loved her. But I became really sad when I learned he was paralyzed from the waist down. I was like nooooooo, not Landon crying 😢… I was rooting for them (he and Cora) and wanted him to play baseball.

But learning that they locked up Jeff and threw away the key made my dad. But what made my day was Landon being 20% able to walk again. With a lot of therapy. He even stood up during Cora’s birthday party at the end.

Even if he was fully paralyzed (though he wasn’t), I thought. Even though he would’ve been, it’s a lot he could do even if he were paralyzed from the waist down. I was like he could coach baseball, among other things.

But in the end, everything turns out good for both he and Cora. Even though they been through the worse but they came out of it, especially Cora.

Don’t Kiss the Heartbreaker (Billionaire Academy YA Romance Book 3) by Holly Stevenson

My current read. I’m 72 out of 100 on my reading challenge. 

Book Review:

Hmm 🤔? Will there be a lot of spoilers, maybe!

Soo. I liked that this one was just as good as the second book. I like a book that can keep my interest and have me curious as to what will happen next.

I could tell that Cade liked Tia, which she didn’t understand why would he pick her out of all the other girls and randomly single her out, which he explained to her his reason.

I understand her doubts about not giving in to him when he asks her to be his girlfriend. But I thought she was a fool to believe Chloe had to say to her about “why Cade asks her out,” smh! 🤦🏽‍♀️ She was just stupid to assume and believe what that horrible girl has to say. Because Chloe been a problem since book one. I mean Gah, she wants every guy that’s new or popular. They who don’t even want her. They go for girls who are the polar opposite of her and who’s way better.

Hence, Cade, he didn’t want to be alone with Chloe though I always thought he could’ve ignored her and told her no I am doing this with Tia ONLY! But I was glad that her best friend Lacey had her back through everything.

Not only that, she told her parents how she felt about the pageant and taking over her father’s technology business when all she wanted to be a career in art.

I’m glad Tia worked things out with Cade because she almost let Chloe out of everybody ruin her relationship.

Book Description:

Cade Carlisle is the hottest guy in school—and he’s also the biggest heartbreaker.

Everybody knows that.

So why did I just agree to go out with him?

Am I dreaming … or did the student body president and hottest guy in school just ask me out?

I’m seventy-five percent sure I’m dreaming. I mean … it had to be a dream, right? Cade Carlisle doesn’t just walk up to a nobody (aka, me) and ask them point blank if they want to go on a date.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m a leper. When Mom’s got me all dolled up with my hair and face done to beauty pageant perfection—I’m more than halfway decent. Some might even say pretty—but thus far, I haven’t bothered with any of that at Mr. Rainier Academy.

I’m just plain old Tia Radcliffe.

But I have a feeling that this date with Cade is about to change everything …

Don’t Kiss in Detention (Billionaire Academy YA Romance #2) by Erica Penrod

I think this one is better than the first book in this series. But still don’t understand the title for this book 🤷🏽‍♀️. 

Book Review:

Spoilers here and there.
Before I even get started on this review for this book. All I want to say I need a book with Crue and Emery because I want to know if he’s going to go for what he wants because he likes Emery, but he’s not pushing himself to get the girl. Hopefully, book four will be about them or something.

So with that being said… I liked this book more than I liked book one. Book one was okay. I also caught something in this book where they were in the ride with Adelle, and they spoke to each other. But in the book with Adelle, it wasn’t John she was on the date with it was Kevin… Adelle ended up with John at the dance after what happened between Kevin’s ex and the guy Terrance.

Also, I liked the fact that the Nile finally realize he had feelings for Jovi. Because he was mean to her when they first met, I mean everybody seems to be. I think due to her ways on the show. Because you’ll think that person is this certain way when you are watching them on reality tv every week.

I like that she showed Nile that wasn’t who she truly was on the show. She showed him the real her. & he also shows her that he did want to be with her, and he had the same feelings that she had for him.

He saw the real her when he saw how her parents acted towards her, especially her father because his dad was horrible. Since his father acted like his son was going to ruin his image due to the election. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️… it’s crazy how you have to act a certain way due to the job that your parents or parent have. But after the election, his dad finally came around. Which I think is a good thing kind of. Because I think his (Nile) father didn’t need to treat Nile the way he did.

Especially when it came to Jovi.

While You Were Flirting by Liwen Y. Ho

Currently reading 📖 “while you were flirting” now I see why the title is called what it’s called. I also like this book better than the last book I read!!

Book Review:

Sooo good!!!

Spoilers.. here and there

What a surprise I didn’t know that Nolan was Max’s brother. Well, stepbrother, and been saying I can’t wait until Nolan gets his book. I see why Nolan’s book is going to be last since Max is his stepbrother. Probably more friends are coming in before him. Hence, Nolan and Seth are best friends, and Max and Liam are best friends. Interesting!!

With that being said… I liked this book I wasn’t disappointed at all. To know who the girl that Max chased in the book with Liam and Ava, which was Angel. It was interesting to know.

I was glad that he figures things out and stopped trying to be a player (well more so running from his feelings) Angel helped him with that and he helped Angel with her fears of driving. I think they worked well together. Not only did they work together. But even though they were opposites, they were meant to be.

Even with everything that they said to each other when it came to their feelings, you could tell both of them liked each other. Even Evan and Emma, the founders of the school, saw that in them, especially Emma. I was surprised how Seth never popped up in this book since Evan is his cousin. I’m trying to think was Ava the one that got adopted by them.

Was probably didn’t I can’t remember if it was this series or not!!! But I liked the fact that they both liked Angel and Max… and to also give Max a chance at the acting gig was great for him. I can’t wait until I read the next book to this series about Juliet and Jaxson. I know it’s about to be good and interesting!!! 


53257229. sy475

Book Description:

Spoiler alert: Spending time with a player can mean only one of two things—getting your heart broken or falling in love.

Evangeline

Ever since my ex dumped me while I was recovering from a car accident, I’ve avoided both boys and driving like the plague. But I’m determined to finally face my fears. So when a guy approaches me with a deal—driving lessons in exchange for tutoring sessions—it sounds like the perfect solution.

Except that this guy is Max Parker, the school flirt.

Max

After my parents’ sudden divorce, playing the field seems like a safer bet than commitment. The idea of spending time with one girl never crosses my mind … until I meet Evangeline Evans. Not only because I need her help to pass precal, but also because I like who I am around her.

Who knew?

Now, I need to work up the nerve to show her the guy behind the reputation, so she’ll trust me enough to let me close.

The Edenvale Arts Academy series brings you the sweetness and innocence of young love amidst a backdrop of the performing arts. Combining creativity and romance, this YA series is perfect for fans of swoony kisses and sigh-worthy happy ever afters.

Don’t Kiss Your Lab Partner (Billionaire Academy YA Romance #1) by Lucy McConnell

This book is okay! I want to read something else, but I want to finish this book first! 

Book Review:

Spoilers… splash here and there••

Okay, so when I first started this book, I was like, hmm, 🤔 do I want to finish this book? Or not! I was tempted to start another book and come back to this one later, but I didn’t. I continue to read this one, and I glad I did.

I can’t say that this book is the best one yet that Lucy McConnell has written. I’ve read others by her. But I can say it was good and pretty interesting. It did keep my attention a little. Because I wanted to know what will happen between John and Adelle and what was Nicole was planning to do. Her attempt to ruin their app was stupid over a guy who didn’t even want Jeanie like ugh glad that Kevin went after her and hopefully got his girl back because Terrance didn’t deserve her.

I also understood what John did for Adelle so that she could win the TACS award. Not only that, in the end, but they also got to be together. Because Nicole finally got removed from John’s arms. She was acting like a Leach, but in reality, she wanted Terrance and only wanted to hurt Adelle. But truthfully, she didn’t hurt Adelle because John wanted her and only her (Adelle)…

Book Description:

I was ready to rock Sophomore year…

Until I got the party kid as a lab partner…

I’m so flunking.

I’m also crushing on him–hard.

Jumping into the social lives of our fellow students backfires when the mean girl gets dumped because of our app. She sets out to sabotage our project and ruin the Homecoming Dance for anyone we matched.

There’s only one way to salvage the project–but it will mean my first broken heart because I’ll lose either the guy I love or my life-long dream.

Catching Carly (Barley Cross #2) by Emma Hart

I died at the part about spraining her ankle by changing a lightbulb 🤣 … I’m just glad this book is more interesting than the first one. Because the first one was bleh!!! . 

Book Review:

Spoilers.. just a few.
I don’t know about Emma Hart’s books. But sometimes I get halfway over the book towards the middle. But I always want to finish one of her books that I am reading because I want to know what happens.

It’s like this book. Okay, it turns out WAY better than “Being Brooke” that book was just ugh! Never again. Whereas this book was pretty good. But I was over it towards the end.

I can say I wasn’t disappointed because this one “Catching Carly” turned out good when I was reading the one with Brooke and learned that Carly was going to have a book with Cain brother Zeke. I was like I have to read it. I’m glad I did and got to find out what happened between them and how they would end up with each other. I’m just glad his ex didn’t ruin anything for them.

Not only that, but I also can’t wait to read “The Upside to Being Single” soon. But I also wonder if Billie Brooke’s sister will end up with a book, or does she have one already? If not, I would like one, at least!!!!

The Running Back and the Prima Donna (The Ballerina Academy #2) by Anne-Marie Meyer, Maggie Dallen

Currently reading “The Running Back and the Prima Donna” 📖… 

Book Review:

Pretty good!!

Spoilers. Maybe just a few splash 💦 throughout this review, let’s see 👀…

So okay! I was curious as to what will happen and how it would happen when it came to both Bianca and Ryan. It was interesting to learn that they both had issues, and both ran from problems. Well, more so, Bianca lied about a lot of things. Though she had her reasons. I liked how Ryan taught her that she could be more than prima Donna. He showed her a new meaning of life. Not only that, but Bianca also showed Ryan that it’s okay to care and love someone who you want to be in a relationship with.

He had so much built-up hurt with his father that he was known to run away every time some got tough, more so when his father comes around. I do hope that he gets a chance to talk to his father and work things out with him. But not only that I was glad to read that Bianca finally told everyone the truth and not only that both Ryan and Bianca worked things out when it came to their relationship since Ryan had broken up with her since he didn’t want to hurt her because he felt like he was going to end up like his father a wash-up musician and what not!!!

But his mother shines some light on the situation to help him understand that both she and his father was in the wrong and he and Bianca needed to work things out with one another. & I was glad that they did!!!!

Besides that, I can’t wait to read Colleen and Eve, Story!!! 


51269041. sy475

Book Description:

He thought he had her figured out. Turns out, he was wrong.

Bianca
Everyone at the ballet academy think they know me—the prima donna. The diva. The mean girl. They’re wrong.
What they don’t know is that I’m moments away from losing my meticulously planned out life. I’m not one to show weakness but my ankle has a different agenda. Adding Ryan to that equation only complicates things more and suddenly the only person who can save my future—and my secrets—is the one person I’m not sure I can trust.

Ryan
I’ve spend my life not caring. If it doesn’t involve Mom or my kid sister, Rosie, I don’t care. Period.
But there’s something about Bianca. Something about her desperate desire to hide the fact that she’s a pageant queen that I can’t help but involve myself in. Sure, it’s black mail—she does what I ask and I keep her secret—but I really think I can help her loosen up. After all, that’s my speciality.
Until things aren’t as simple anymore and suddenly, my feelings are deeper than I like. I come from a man who leaves, so why do I think I’d be different with Bianca? It’s better for me to stay away than for me to break her. And the last thing I want to do is break her.

His Secret Baby (McKnight Family Romance #2) by Anne-Marie Meyer, Lucy McConnell

Currently reading 📕…. 

Book Review:

***Spoilers. Possibly. Will be some throughout this review***

I was waiting for this book to come out to read this book. Because I was so curious when I was reading Jaxson and Lottie’s book when Chris popped up at the event, that Penny and her daughter Katie was at. I mean Penny panic and ran away so fast that it would’ve had you curious as to why she ran and what for.

I was glad I got the chance to read this book; to learn if she would’ve fixed things with her ex-boyfriend. Especially let him be around his daughter and get to know her. Not only that I was glad he stayed long enough to try to fix things with Penny. But what suck was how Penny kept the secret from Chris about who Katie real father was. He even figured out that Tag (their best friend) and Penny was lying about who Katie father was. Because for one, Tag couldn’t have any children.

But not only that, when Chris did find out about it, I think it was wrong of him to run away from the truth. Though, I did understand why he ran from the truth because he was upset. But it took both him and Penny to figure out that they needed to talk and figure things out for the better. Especially since they both wanted to be with each other and feelings were still there.

In the end, they ended up meeting at the airport trying to get to each other, which was good for all three of them because a child will always need their father.

Wow, this crazy like all of this that went down. That Elizabeth girl will go to the end to get rid of Lilah. She hates her so much that she wants to kill her and to top that off, her mother is trying to kill her too.

It sucks that we, as readers have to wait until next year to get the third book to this series. Like REALLY? I’m a forget what is going on by the time the new year comes around.

Not only that, but I also hoped that the guys Orlando, Kendrick, and Maxwell is there for Delilah and not trying to use her or do bad things to her as they tried before. Besides that, I also hope that at least Maxwell pops up out of nowhere to check on Lilah like he usually does. Especially when it comes to her getting shot at…

Besides that, it’s not much I want to say when it comes to this book.

The crazy thing was I for sure thought it was Kendrick who was looking out for her. Smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ the whole time it wasn’t even Kendrick, it was Maxwell. Like OMG! He also had (temporary tattoos) so that they could get at her. I don’t understand why they hate Delilah so much. I can’t wait to figure out their reason.
