180 Seconds

Synopsis

Some people live their entire lives without changing their perspective. For Allison Dennis, all it takes is 180 seconds…

After a life spent bouncing from one foster home to the next, Allison is determined to keep others at arm’s length. Adopted at sixteen, she knows better than to believe in the permanence of anything. But as she begins her third year in college, she finds it increasingly difficult to disappear into the white noise pouring from her earbuds.

One unsuspecting afternoon, Allison is roped into a social experiment just off campus. Suddenly, she finds herself in front of a crowd, forced to interact with a complete stranger for 180 seconds. Neither she, nor Esben Baylor, the dreamy social media star seated opposite her, is prepared for the outcome.

When time is called, the intensity of the experience overwhelms Allison and Esben in a way that unnerves and electrifies them both. With a push from her oldest friend, Allison embarks on a journey to find out if what she and Esben shared is the real thing—and if she can finally trust in herself, in others, and in love.

Review

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!! This is easily one of my top books of 2021, if not the top book. Jessica Park got me in all the feels…I laughed, I related, I felt, and I cried…I cried hard! As a treatment foster care case manager, Allison’s story was one that touched my heart in so many ways. I know firsthand the trauma one can face being in foster care, and that made this story all that more real. There are so many amazing moments and realizations throughout this book by the characters, that spoke to me in so many ways. The quotes, the stories, the struggles…all spoke to me and made this book that much more amazing. The characters were FANTASTIC. Their relationships, their struggles, and their triumphs made this book incredible. Jessica Park’s writing is amazing. Her way with words made this book both heartbreaking and inspiring all at the same time. I cannot say enough good things about this book! This is a book that I will read over and over and I will learn something new from it every time. If you have not picked up 180 Seconds by Jessica Park, make sure you do! You will not regret it! I can’t wait to read more of Jessica Park’s books!

Slapshot

Thank you to Sarina BowenHeartEyes Press, and Rebecca Jenshak for the gifted copy of Slapshot. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Synopsis

I’m banished to Vermont for a scandal that wasn’t my fault, and broke because my famous father cut me off. And did I mention my roommate stole my boyfriend? Yeah, I’m loving my Moo U experience. 

Now I need a job, because this gel manicure won’t upkeep itself. The only available option is the last one I’d ever want–a job as the hockey team’s equipment manager. My plan is to do the bare minimum, get paid, and find my way back into my father’s good graces. 

I will not get involved with a hockey player, no matter how hot. They’re cocky. And obnoxious. I know their type, and I’m not willing to risk getting hurt again. Until Lex Vonne glides into my life looking like sin on a stick. 

He thinks I’m a spoiled brat. 
I think he’s using me to get ahead. 
But the fire I feel when we’re together is like a slapshot to my heart…

Review

I was so excited to hear that there was a new hockey series coming out…Moo U. If you have not already guessed, I love hockey! Combine that with a good romance novel and this girl is one happy camper!!! 🙂 I absolutely loved Slapshot by Rebecca Jenshak! Rebecca has a similar writing style to Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, two of my favorite authors. I loved the characters in this story. Lex and Kaitlyn were amazing characters! I loved the determination of both characters in their own lives. The determination to be who they were going to be regardless of what other people thought. I also loved the determination of each of the characters in their love lives. Both Lex and Kaitlyn knew what they wanted and then went for it! This is the first book that I have read by Rebecca Jenshak and I must say it made a great first impression. Rebecca wrote a story that was not only believable but also one that kept you turning the pages and wanting more after the story was done. I can’t wait to read more in the Moo U series and I can’t wait to read more by Rebecca Jenshak!

Blindsided

Thank you to Sarina Bowen, HeartEyes Press, and Victoria Denault for the gifted copy of Blindsided. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Synopsis

What if Romeo wore hockey skates, and Juliet was raised on a farm next door?
As a life-long Vermonter, there are three beliefs I’ve always held true:
1. Our family farm is everything
2. Hockey is a close second
3. The Todds next door are our sworn enemies
But this season will test everything I stand for. 

I have an illicit side job that could cost me my hockey scholarship. And now Maggie Todd knows my secret. She’s waiting for the right moment to use it against me. But every time I face off against her, I learn things I shouldn’t want to know. Like how deeply her competitive streak runs, and how sexy that is. And how easy it is to make her blush… everywhere.

An Adler and a Todd cannot be lovers. Breaking that rule is like pulling a pin on a grenade–everything in my life could blow up. Can we surrender to these feelings… or will our families’ feud make us its next casualty?

Review

I was so excited to hear that there was a new hockey series coming out…Moo U. If you have not already guessed, I love hockey! Combine that with a good romance novel and this girl is one happy camper!!! 🙂 I absolutely loved Blindsided by Victoria Denault. Victoria has a similar writing style to Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy, two of my favorite authors. The characters were well developed and the storyline was believable. I absolutely loved Maggie and Tate and their antics. I loved all the fights they got into and I loved the twists and turns that Victoria Denault put in the story with the “Romeo and Juliet-esk” family feud. The one thing that shocked me, but also made the story that much more amazing, was when what the family was feuding about was revealed…this was a curveball that I did not see coming! I won’t tell you what it is, but I will tell you, it was not what I predicted and this twist was not even on my radar. As a first-time reader of a Victoria Denault book, this one certainly made a great…no fantastic first impression. I absolutely loved Blindsided by Victoria Denault and will be picking up more books in the Moo U series as well as more books by Victoria Denault.

Only Mostly Devastated

Synopsis

Will Tavares is the dream summer fling – he’s fun, affectionate, kind – but just when Ollie thinks he’s found his happily ever after, summer vacation ends and Will stops texting Ollie back. Now Ollie is one prince short of his fairy-tale ending, and to complicate the fairy tale further, a family emergency sees Ollie uprooted and enrolled at a new school across the country. Which he minds a little less when he realizes it’s the same school Will goes to…except Ollie finds that the sweet, comfortably queer guy he knew from summer isn’t the same one attending Collinswood High. This Will is a class clown, closeted – and, to be honest, a bit of a jerk.

Ollie has no intention of pining after a guy who clearly isn’t ready for a relationship, especially since this new, bro-y jock version of Will seems to go from hot to cold every other week. But then Will starts “coincidentally” popping up in every area of Ollie’s life, from music class to the lunch table, and Ollie finds his resolve weakening.

The last time he gave Will his heart, Will handed it back to him trampled and battered. Ollie would have to be an idiot to trust him with it again.

Right? Right.

Review

This was a fun, light-hearted, and deep book all packed into one! I absolutely loved the characters that Sophie Gonzales created, especially Ollie. I must admit however, I am not sure if I would have loved them the same had I read the book instead of listening to the audio version. Narrator Mark Sanderlin really made Ollie’s character come to life and made the story that much more real. Speaking of real, while I can imagine the storyline and it happening in real life, some of Ollie’s reactions to things, especially as a teenager, seemed a bit off to me. Ollie appeared way too calm and put together. Don’t get me wrong, there are teens out there who are calm and put together, but being a gay teenager that is out in a school where being gay is joked and laughed about, and one going through as many trials as Ollie went through, I am not sure how he reacted is realistic (of note, I have no idea what it is like to be a gay teenager in this situation, I am only speculating…I do not say any of this to offend anyone or pass judgement on anyone – it is merely an observation/opinion). Overall, I loved Ollie, his family, and his friends and the story told by Sophie Gonzales.

The Kiss Quotient

Synopsis

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases—a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice—with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan—from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he’s making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…

Review

This book was not what I expected at all!!! The writing in this book was amazing, and for those of you that listen to audiobooks, the narrator of this audiobook was perfect! Within the first few minutes of listening to this book, I found myself loving Stella and the character she portrayed. Helen Hoang has a way of writing and describing her characters that has you loving them in minutes and also wanting to learn more about them. I also loved Michael; from his mysterious background, escort service views, and his boy next door characteristics, it was all wrapped up into one likable man. I really enjoyed the story of Stella and Michael and what it means to find love when it feels like the odds are against you. I am not sure what I expected from this story, but it was not what I read (listened to)! Helen Hoang had me laughing throughout at the interesting situations Stella found herself in and how she got through each of them. This book also had a more serious tone and gave me a glimpse into the world of autism and the struggles one faces, but also the successes one experiences. I absolutely loved this book and will be picking up more by Helen Hoang.

A Romance for Christmas

Thank you to author Kayelle Allen, Romance Lives Forever Books, and Silver Dagger Book Tours for the gifted copy of this book. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Synopsis

A sweet holiday romance showcasing love, loss, and the spirit of giving.

Can you fall in love again when the love of your life has gone?

On Christmas Eve, the love of Dara’s life passed away in a tragic accident, leaving Dara with their three-year-old daughter. Though insurance paid for the basics, there wasn’t much left. Now it’s Christmas Eve again, there’s no money for a tree, and everything Dara loves has been sold to survive.

A knock on the door reveals a cop, with a gift that will change her entire life.

A romance full of hope, so sweet there’s not even a kiss…

Review

This was a cute short story about love, even when it feels like your whole world has fallen apart. While only 68 pages long, author Kayelle Allen did a great job of pulling you in from the first sentences and hooking you by your heart. While I did not find the timeline of the story realistic, I overall enjoyed this story. Kayelle Allen’s writing was easy to read and enjoyable. I will be picking up more of Kayelle Allen’s books in the future.

Review

OH. MY. GOD!!! Why have I just discovered this series? I randomly stumbled on Book 0.5 — Cupcakes and Ink when I was searching for a different book to read. I listened to Cupcakes and Ink as an audiobook and I was HOOKED. I mean hook. line. and sinker hooked. I immediately headed to my library’s webpage so that I could reserve the books. They came in, I checked them out, and then they sat in my TBR pile (stupid move on my part). Then I realized they were due soon, so I picked up the first one yesterday and well…hook. line. and sinker!!! I read both of these books in a day and stayed up until 2am to finish the second one, even though I had to work the next morning. THEY WERE THAT GOOD. Helena Hunting has a way with words and storylines. In this case, both books were beyond EXCELLENT. Helena Hunting writes an emotional and heart-wrenching story about two lost souls – Tenley and Hayden. Both stuck in their own worlds of loss and grief, each clawing to find a way out, Tenley and Hayden meet by chance when Hayden’s aunt hires Tenley to work at her store. What I thought might be a glossed over version of grief and loss, turned out to be a story of heartbreak, courage, second chances, and finding a way to move on when the pain seems too heavy to carry any longer. There were so many layers to this book that were reveled in just the right way at just the right time. These are two books that will stick with me for a lifetime. Even though I checked these two books out from the library this time, they are now on my “to buy” list, so that I can read them over and over. I cannot say enough good things about these books. Simply AMAZING writing and storytelling.

Mason’s Gray

Thank you to Geri Myers Goodwin, The Review Crew, and Jones Media Publishing for the gifted copy of Mason’s Gray. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Synopsis

Impossible To Resist…

Rock Icon, Brody Mason, steers clear from commitment at all costs. When an unforeseen accident draws him to the new neighbor, Morgan Gray, he finds her impossible to resist. His stubborn attitude and playboy ways will not be enough to keep the barriers from faltering.

Two strangers, two completely different lives meld together. Fate or coincidence? Either way, love found them when they weren’t looking for it.

Review

I have been saying this a lot lately, however, this was my first introduction to author Geri’ Myers Goodwin. And, at the risk of repeating myself, I am very glad that I did. I can’t believe this short, but cute novel was a debut for Geri’ Myers Goodwin! There was no introduction or lead up, Geri’ Myers Goodwin just jumped right in and the story took off…and I loved it! Geri’ jumped right in with a wonderfully descriptive story with fantastic, likable characters. I could not help but like both Morgan and Brody from the first few pages and through the rest of the story. I enjoyed the storyline that Geri’ created and also enjoyed some of the unexpected, yet fun things she added to the storyline. I am sort of sad that this is Geri’ Myers Goodwin’s debut novel as I cannot wait to read more of her fantastic writing!

Cocky Notes

Thank you to Leesa Bow for the gifted copy of Cocky Notes. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Synopsis

Who thought writing ‘LOSERS’ on a menu could lead to an affair of love notes?

It didn’t start out as love. How could it when I vowed never to fall in love…

Reef Burton, the sexy blue-eyed football player, and his mates are definitely not ‘Losers’ yet writing it on a menu gave me reason to smile. Only it didn’t make it to the trash.

He returns to the restaurant where I work wearing his killer smile. I wasn’t to know those squiggly lines and arrows meant something. An offensive play his football team learned at an earlier training session. Coming here discussing the team plays over coffee helps… so he says.

He’ll see what I wrote. Apart from it being awkward the next time I serve him he could also report me to my boss.

I can’t lose my job when in hindsight I need two to pay all the bills rolling in, and to care for my invalid father.

I’m thankful he kept it as our secret.

Until he left me a note.

Responding will only lead to more trouble.

So when Mr Blue Eyes-Blond Surfy-Hair gives me one of his spine tingling looks, how can I resist?

Review

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this book! I have never read anything of Leesa Bow’s before, but I am so glad that I got a chance to read this book. It was AMAZING!!! From the wonderful characters to the fantastic story line, this book was absolutely the best! What I thought might be a straight forward novel, was one full of twists and turns that I did not expect…and I loved each an every one of them. I think they all make the story what it is! I cannot rave enough about how much I liked this book!! I really enjoyed that the book was set in Australia and that Leesa Bow provided a list of terms at the beginning of the book to help the reader understand the lingo. It was exciting for me to have the novel set in a place that I have always wanted to visit. While there was not too much about Australia, it made me want to travel there even more! 🙂 I am sad that I just discovered Leesa Bow, however, I am super happy that there are many more books of hers that I can enjoy! Make sure to puck up this book…you won’t regret it!!

PS: At this time, this is my FAVORITE book in all of the Cocky Hero Club books that I have read!!

This is for sure a 5+++++ star book for me!!!!!

Riled

Thank you to Heather Slade for the gifted copy of Riled. All opinions expressed here are my own.

Synopsis

He’s determined to protect her.
She’s determined to tempt him.
Together, things get RILED up.

RILE
It’s a job,
Only a job.
I’m doing a favor for the Queen,
But watching over this young, sexy, and incorrigible woman is frustrating,
As she parades around half-naked without a care in the world.

My mind and body won’t agree.
But when her life is threatened,
My sixth sense kicks in.
Saving her is my only mission.
But everything about her has me all RILED up.

Kensington
Suffocating,
I’m nearly drowning in this life I’m trapped in.

But when he comes in to watch over me,
Things are definitely looking up.
He’s sexy and rugged as Hell.
Tempting him becomes my favorite hobby.

Something’s holding him back,
Something haunts him, or is it someone?
I’m determined to help him get rid of his pain,
Let go of his demons.

After all, this man’s got me all RILED up.

Review

This is the second book that I have read by Heather Slade and I am so happy that I found her as an author. I absolutely loved this book!!! Heather Slade writes a heart breakingly romantic book that has your emotions on a rollercoaster…and I loved every minute of it. Heather Slade’s characters were fantastic. I liked both Kenzie and Rile right away and grew to like them more and more as the book went on! Heather Slade has great descriptive writing, where you are able to imagine the scene that she is describing in your mind’s eye perfectly. The only “complaint” that I had is that there were so many different security people involved that I had a hard time keeping track of all of them. While minor characters compared to Kenzie and Rile, their names and jobs were mentioned a lot and it seemed as though as soon as I got a couple down, a few more would be introduced. Other than that minor dislike, the book was FANTASTIC!!!!! I can’t wait to read more by Heather Slade!

About the Author

 I write stories set in places I love with characters I’d be happy to call friends. The women in my books are self-confident, successful, and strong, with wills of their own, and hearts as big as the Colorado sky. And the men are sublimely sexy, seductive alphas who rise to the challenge of capturing the sweet soul of a woman whose heart they’ll hold in the palm of their hand forever. I grew up an East Coast girl, and then spent half my life on the West Coast. Now my husband, our two boys, and I happily call Colorado home.
