The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Reading this when 📖 I’m supposed to be doing the math.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. The book is interesting but not as good as the fill-in boyfriend. But never was disappointed by her books so far.

Description:

Money can’t buy a good first impression.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom’s porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence—he’s tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But just when Xander’s loyalty and attentiveness are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?

Book Review:

The Distance Between Us is actually a good book Caymen and Xander (by the way I hate that name) Alex was better to fit in my own opinion. But the storyline was interesting, I already knew they both were going to end up with each other. Also, I understand why Caymen was upset with her mother for keeping secrets about her family. They were out there struggling whereas her mom (well there family was actually rich). The Robert guy was actually a perk I didn’t understand his hate for Caymen, he probably wasn’t even Xander friend only was using him for who he was. I cannot wait to read the other books by Kasie West. The books I read by her so far was very good.

By Your Side by Kasie West

About to start reading 📖 By Your Side by Kasie West! I’m supposed to be doing homework. But I’m over this math class already. Been having stressful semester.

So I will put my face into these books I’ve bought.

22195278_1342636349195932_8171553723218687057_n

Book Description:

An irresistible story from Kasie West that explores the timeless question What do you do when you fall for the person you least expect?

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead, it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn at first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?

Book Review:

Spoilers….

This book was actually good, I wasn’t disappointed, but it wasn’t as good as her other book I owned and read “Fill in boyfriend.” But I did like Autumn and Dax story, I was rooting for them too, and I like how her friends accepted him. And Dallin was wrong for treating her the way he did. Plus I believe she should’ve told her friends about her anxiety attacks, I know that I have panic disorder there’s no way I would do something that I know will lead to a panic attack. I was glad when they put the pillow over her, and she screamed at them and finally told them about her anxiety attacks.

When it came to talking to Dax, I believe it was easier for her to talk to him beside her friends, it can be like that. Because it’s like that with me, I cannot talk to my family or best friend about anything including my panic attacks, but my guy friend I can. With Dax and Autumn, I believe he did calm her as to where her friends aren’t calm and have her doing things she knew she shouldn’t be doing.

Very good book. I’m here like I want a Bec and Nate story now I wanted to know will Hayden (love this name by the way) which I wanted to name my future son lol. Any and Gia plan would work when Nate came over. I couldn’t stand the girl Jule she was not Gia friend, and her own friends were not her friends either. Smh.

I really liked this story not sure I got the part about Bradley in the description I assume he was going to tell her friends, but it was Jules wack self I believe that was jealous of Gia. And wanted what Gia had and even though Claire and Lancy were mad at her if they were her REAL friends, they would’ve forgiven her for the lie, she was telling. Plus it’s like the female turn a blind eye towards what the Jules girl was doing and ignored everything that Gia had done smh. I was glad when she mad new friends who actually cared.

Book Description:

When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she decides to do the unthinkable…convince the cute guy waiting to pick up his sister to pretend to be her boyfriend for the night. The task is simple: two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

The problem is that days after prom, she can’t stop thinking about her fill-in boyfriend. But can Gia turn her fake boyfriend into a real one without exposing her lie and possibly destroying her friendships and her newfound relationship?

Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Kasie West’s talent shines in this tale of one girl’s unexpected quest to find love…and possibly herself.

Book Description:

Swim. Eat. Shower. School. Snack. Swim. Swim. Swim. Dinner. Homework. Bed. Repeat.

All of Maggie’s focus and free time is spent swimming. She’s not only striving to earn scholarships—she’s training to qualify for the Olympics. It helps that her best friend, Levi, is also on the team and cheers her on. But Levi’s already earned an Olympic tryout, so Maggie feels, even more, pressure to succeed. And it’s not until Maggie’s away on a college visit that she realizes how much of the “typical” high school experience she’s missed by being in the pool.

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Maggie decides to squeeze the most out of her senior year. First up? Making out with a guy. And Levi could be the perfect candidate. After all, they already spend a lot of time together. But as Maggie slowly starts to uncover new feelings for Levi, how much is she willing to sacrifice in the water to win at love?

I am hoping this book is good as her other two books I read. I think this is the first book. But not sure.

Book Review:

Few Spoilers….

I really enjoyed reading this book the only problem I have is the big girl > skinny girl. Gets pretty annoying after awhile especially if you a big girl you wouldn’t like for skinny chick to say why you so fat. Or she a whale. But in every book I read by this author. It’s like she dislike skinny females.

Other then that annoying part I enjoyed this and I figured that Fresh was family of the kid Snoop. He a perv anyway for dating a 16 year old though wasn’t he like 20 just like Ke’Ron at least K had more since to wait. But her mom dipping out on her and then her daddy smh just crazy she had nobody but she had a fucked up attitude remind me of 17 y/o niece. But she way worse with her mouth ISIS was.

But when I read the back I’m like maybe her brother the stick up kid was going to get murder be it was her brother who had a disability like come on who going to kill a person with a disability like get real, but I wish her brother had a bit more common since to not get in a car with strangers dang.

Book Description: 

Lesson #1: You come for me, I come back even harder for you. Fair exchange. No robberies. Isis Carter got schooled early on in surviving the streets. When some girls put a beatdown on her, she took back what was hers. When her brother was killed and her mom, Queenie, bailed, Isis fought to stay strong. And when her dad abandoned her for his new family, sixteen-year-old Isis buried the hurt by looking out for herself—and hookin’ up with bad boy Fresh…until a run-in with the law shatters Isis’s world and threatens to destroy her future. 

Now the only person Isis can rely on is herself…until her secret crush K-Rock steps in. But when Isis lets her guard down, will she be given a second chance to get her life straight or will it cost her everything?

Book Review:

I know that I didn’t read this series from the beginning, but I like the other girls, but the Rich girl I knew she was a problem. But, me not knowing the full story with the London situation I felt that Spencer shouldn’t have done what she did to her. I also knew her daddy wasn’t crazy. Their parents well mothers aren’t mothers at all. And Heather and Rich are sisters, ha and Rich hates her I hope in book 5 they find out there family.

There’s no one better than Spencer Ellington when it comes to revenge. But stopping her inheritance-stealing mother and saving her crown turns into an all-access media battle. Now Hollywood High’s in-crowd is poised for oh-so-sweet payback . . .

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Book Review: 

I finish Blood Forever in two days, I started this just yesterday, once I finish reading Soul Bound.

[Few Spoilers ALERT]!

I enjoyed this book, because of both Sunny, Magnus, Jareth, and Rayne got a do-over and happy ending in the end. Like yes, finally, Pyrus dusky self-got what he deserved like I was hoping for Pyrus to die, like get eating by those Zombies but that wasn’t the chase, he didn’t even die, ugh, he wack evil self only got life in vampire prison lol, like whhhyy? But I did get happy though when Bertha died for the second time; Karma’s a mother chicken huh? Lol but little ol’ Lucifent got killed again for the second time, I was like dang, lol little ol’ child vampire can’t catch a break, especially when the first he got killed by Bertha and in Blood Forever he got killed by Pyrus. I think he would’ve shut and lived he may not have been a harm to the human race, as he says he had human friends but since Pyrus is bipolar, that didn’t happen. Glad Jareth and Rayne got married in the end, and both Rayne and Sunshine parents are alive, including Sunny being alive to and the guys got their memory back, in the end, Yes awesomeness book.

Blood Forever by Mari Mancusi

Description:

Sunny and Rayne McDonald have had their lives turned upside down thanks to the Blood Coven. But when the past itself is changed, the sisters will do anything to get back what they’ve lost…

After making a deal with the devil, Rayne and her twin sister, Sunny, have been given the chance to go back in time—to prevent that fateful night when Sunny was bitten by Magnus from ever happening. But while Sunny has been offered a vampire-free existence, she finds she doesn’t want to live without Magnus by her side. And although Rayne puts up a stoic front, she secretly wishes that the vampire Jareth was back in her arms.

To reclaim their lives, Sunny and Rayne team up to figure out a way to change history for the better. Problem is, Jareth and Magnus aren’t all that eager to help two unfamiliar girls who somehow know everything about their vampiric organization. Now, if the twins can’t get the boys on their side, history may spiral out of control—destroying not only the Blood Coven, but quite possibly the entire human race…

Book Review: 

I started on Soul Bound back in 2013 or maybe 2014 (November or October) I can’t remember, but It took me awhile to finish this book and today midnight I almost finish it close to 1:00 am lol. I can say this book was good as the other six books once I took the time to get into the book and read it because the first time I read it, I kept getting distracted and couldn’t quite get into it. And man I can’t wait to read part eight (with Sunny and Rayne) point of view, I know it’s going to be good.

[SPOILER ALERT ]

Plus with Sunny getting a do-over to get her soul back, I couldn’t blame Rayne, that’s her twin sister, who wouldn’t miss that opportunity to get their family soul back and have them on EARTH again. I also, like how the author Mari Mancusi added Hades (god of the underworld), his wife Persephone (Goddess of the underworld, the daughter of Zeus) and Hercules (Hero, and the son of Zeus). And how she wrote them in the book, by their looks the way they dress, and how Persephone and Hercules were dating behind Hade’s back lol like whhhhhat? Lol, plus when people die they went to the ‘Underworld” it’s kind of unique, like heaven and hell mixed in one, it was interesting. After seeing all of that, I wonder if “RACE” the rockstar going to change his ways as he says lol. But in the end, I hope they get Sunny from being dead and get Magnus from Pyrus claws; I am also glad that Jareth got to meet and see his family again since he blamed himself for his sister death. But I do wish his brother (wish he got to see his brother again and hopefully, prayerfully, I probably already know, both Sunny, and Rayne will be reunited with their vampire boyfriends Magnus and Jareth.
