*

Rosa Larkin is down on her luck in London, so when she inherits a near-derelict corner shop in a quaint Devon village, her first thought is to sell it for cash and sort out her life. But nothing is straightforward about this legacy.  While the identity of her benefactor remains a mystery, he – or she – has left one important legal proviso: that the shop cannot be sold, only passed on to somebody who really deserves it.

     Rosa makes up her mind to give it a go: to put everything she has into getting the shop up and running again in the small seaside community of Cockleberry Bay. But can she do it all on her own? And if not, who will help her succeed – and who among the following will work secretly to see her fail?

     There is a handsome rugby player, a sexy plumber, a charlatan reporter and a selection of meddling locals. Add in a hit and run incident and the disappearance of a valuable engraved necklace – and what you get is a journey of self-discovery and unpredictable events.

With surprising and heartfelt results, Rosa, accompanied at all times by her little sausage dog Hot, will slowly unravel the shadowy secrets of the inheritance, and also bring her own, long-hidden heritage into the light.

The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay Full Banner~Review~

4.5 Lovely Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟.5

“Love is friendship set on fire…”

This book was an absolute pleasure to read… One of the absolute best parts of being a book blogger/reviewer is the exposure you get to so many amazing authors you wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to… this book is a perfect example of that…. I’ve never read anything by Nicola may, But I can guarantee I will take every opportunity offered to read more books from her…. I like my romance with a touch of humor, a lot of fabulous characters, and a beautiful setting…. this book had all that and the added bonus of some mystery….

Rosa has had a tough life, so when she is offered the opportunity to move to Cockleberry Bay and reopen a corner shop… she thinks this might be a perfect opportunity to get her life straight…. The catch… she can’t sell the shop she needs to give it to somebody who is worthy (when it is time) and also she has no idea who has gifted this to her…. Rosa really had a complete transformation throughout this book, it was so lovely to see… she started out with such thick walls around her, you wondered if there was any way she would be happy in a town where everybody knew everything about you…. and she grew into such a charming person with so many wonderful and Corky friends…. she also has the most adorable dog Hot🐾

There is also romance in this book… but you aren’t quite sure who the love interest is until towards the end…. I had my clear favorite, so I don’t really want to describe them because I probably will give it away…. just know there is not a love triangle, and you really want Rosa to make a certain choice (well at least I did)…. as I mentioned above there is also some mystery in this book… who gave the corner shop to Rosa? Who was involved in the hit and run accident? And what happened to that necklace?

Strongly recommend to fans of Romance with some humor, wonderful quirky characters, and a touch of mystery…

Bruiser by Neal Shusterman – Flashback Friday – @NealShusterman #Young Adult #Flashback Friday #FBF

Bruiser

Bruiser by Neal Shusterman

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌠 Makes you Think Stars

Happy Friday everyone!

I have decided to put another Young Adult book as my #FlashbackFriday because i think sometimes they get a bit of a raw deal.

Some of my favourite book series have been YA, and i think a lot of the time they get overlooked because people think they are for kids, or they are just full of sparkly vampires 😂

So if you’ve never picked up a YA, why not try it, you might be surprised.

Synopsis

“There’s a reason why Brewster can’t have friends – why he can’t care about too many people. Because when he cares about you, things start to happen. Impossible things that can’t be explained. I know, because they’re happening to me.”

When Brontë starts dating Brewster “Bruiser” Rawlins – the guy voted “Most Likely to Get the Death Penalty” her twin brother, Tennyson, isn’t surprised. But then strange things begin to occur. Tennyson and Brontë’s scrapes heal unnaturally fast, and cuts disappear before their eyes. What at first seems like their good fortune turns out to be more than they bargained for…much more.

Review

So I was really excited about reading another Neal Shusterman book, his writing tends to be unforgettable.

I wasn’t disappointed at all….phew!

Loved this book, loved the characters, loved the story, loved it!!

Someone (I don’t know who sorry) described Neal Shusterman as the Tim Burton of YA books, and that is a really good call.

If you have never read a Shusterman book before, firstly WHAT ?!?!?!

What he does in his books is a little like a college professer in class, he leaves you thinking “what would I do?”

Class……”If you could legally abort your child after the age of 13, just by signing a piece of paper that is legally binding, and that said child,now 15 years old pissed you off BIG TIME one night, would you sign it……what about in anger? would you”…………DISCUSS……..

^^^That above is what it is like reading Unwind, one of my all time favourite YA books, I haven’t met anyone that read it and went mehh, and if you say “that” scene to them, they just nod and shudder, ……….do it, read it.

In Bruiser, we meet Brewster “Bruiser” Rawlins, he is the boy at school you avoid, who never smiles, who never talks, who never looks you in the eye.

We also meet Tennyson and Brontè, twins from a loving stable family.

And lastly we meet Cody, Brewsters little brother.

There is a reason for Brewster (brew for short) being so stand offish, he cannot get close to anyone, otherwise it could literally kill him.

If you had the chance to take someone’s pain away would you do it? Where would this end? Bruises, cuts, broken bones?? And who would this stop at, just people you cared for? Just your family? ………….DISCUSS. ….

Brontè starts to go out with Brewster, much to her brothers dismay, after all he was voted the person most likely to get the death penalty!

However, a friendship arises between them all and everything is fine, until one day Brontè cuts her hand quite badly………..and then it is gone, and Brewster shows up with a sliced hand!

With a F’d up life living with his abusive uncle, this book shows us all 4 lives as they intermingle with each other, as it is told in 4 POV’s one of them being in verse.

Read this book, or something by Neal Shusterman, you will not be disappointed.

Have a Tip-Top weekend 😘

5 Star Friday #blogblitz The Girl With No Name by Lisa Regan @Lisalregan @bookouture #bookreview

It is Friday and I am so excited to be part of this blog blitz! I absolutely adored this book, it was unputdownable and I strongly encourage everyone to pick it up…

You can read my gushing five star review belowAnd I hope you all have a lovely weekend!😍

The Girl With No Name

Detective Josie Quinn is horrified when she’s called to the house of a mother who had her newborn baby snatched from her arms.

A woman caught fleeing the scene is Josie’s only lead, but when questioned it seems this mysterious girl doesn’t know who she is, where she’s from or why she is so terrified…

Is she a witness, a suspect, or the next victim?

As Josie digs deeper, a letter about a mix-up at a fertility clinic links the nameless girl and the missing child to a spate of killings across the county. Josie is faced with an impossible decision: should she risk the life of one innocent child to save many others… or can she find another way?

The Girl With No Name is nail-biting, twisty and impossible to put down.  If you love gripping thrillers from Angela Marson, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine, you’ll be hooked.

Review

5 Stars With No Name 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is the second book in the Josie Quinn series and I loved it… it was even better than the first! I might need to rethink my entire I’m not crazy about police procedural thing…. because the last few I have read I have loved so much! This book had me from the first page and did not let go until the very last…. it was the kind of book you didn’t want to put down, because you had to know what was going on… and I was never disappointed by any of the twists and turns or reveals…. and as I was playing amateur detective I actually kind of got something right this time! There is hope all… there is hope!🕵🏻‍♀️

Josie is a great character… and I liked getting to know even more about her in this book…. there are a few secrets still to be revealed, but that just keeps me wanting more….. The character who I enjoyed the most in this book was Noah… I thought his character growth from the previous book was remarkable and I love his relationship with Josie…. Lisa Regan if you’re reading this review, I’d really love to see a little love interest between the two of them, just saying…. The character I am looking most forward to getting to know better is Gretchen… I’m sure that girl has a story to tell…. and the character I was most disappointed in in this book was Luke… for obvious reasons….

Along with all these fabulous characters we had a compelling story…. as I mentioned above I solved a little of the crime as I played detective… but WOW did not see all that coming for sure! And what I love about this is yes there was a big twist and reveal…. but all the pieces fell into place and it was extremely realistic…. as I’m sure you can tell from my review I am more than ready for the next book in this series…. cannot wait to see the growth in the characters and what they are up to next….

Strongly recommend to fans of crime thrillers with fabulous characters….

Such Dark Things by Courtney Evan Tate ~Blog Tour~ @Court_Writes @InkSlingerPR #bookreview

TGIF🎉 today I am excited to be part of the blog tour for Courtney Evan Tate’s Book! Such Dark Things was definitely a very Dark book, filled with loads of twists and turns… you can find my full review below, and I think you’ll enjoy this book if you like your thrills with a lot of sizzle included🔥

 

From New York Times bestseller Courtney Cole, writing as Courtney Evan Tate, comes the psychological thriller that will keep readers up turning pages long into the night, SUCH DARK THINGS! “Written in breathless style, this page-turner relies on quick thrills, surprise twists…[for] readers seeking a fast entertaining tale…”(Publishers Weekly). Grab your copy of SUCH DARK THINGS today!

 

 

A HORRIFIC RECURRING NIGHTMARE IS THREATENING TO STEAL HER SANITY…

Dr. Corinne Cabot is living the American dream. She’s a successful ER physician in Chicago who’s married to a handsome husband. Together they live in a charming house in the suburbs. But appearances can be deceiving—and what no one can see is Corinne’s dark past. Troubling gaps in her memory mean she recalls little about a haunting event in her life years ago that changed everything.

She remembers only being in the house the night two people were found murdered. Her father was there, too. Now her father is in prison; she hasn’t been in contact in years. Repressing that terrifying memory has caused Corinne moments of paranoia and panic. Sometimes she thinks she sees things that aren’t there, hears words that haven’t been spoken. Or have they? She fears she may be losing her mind, unable to determine what’s real and what’s not.

So when she senses her husband’s growing distance, she thinks she’s imagining things. She writes her suspicions off to fatigue, overwork, anything to explain what she can’t accept—that her life really isn’t what it seems.

~Review~

3.75 Majorly Messed Up Stars 🌟🌟🌟.75

I think the best thing to do with this review is to start out with how it has been marketed…. I would classify this book as Dark Erotica not as a psychological thriller….. there is a lot of graphic sex in this book, and if you do not read erotica you will not appreciate this book…. I read a few reviews from my Goodread’s friends and that was their main complaint… too much sex…. additionally let’s look at what this book was compared to… the movie Fatal Attraction…. OK I can see this Zoe definitely the rabbit boiling type of girl…. but the other comparison is the book TGOTT a book I didn’t even necessarily like… but there is nothing and I mean nothing…. other than the fact that there are female characters in both books that these books have in common…. I think 9 times out of 10 the comparisons to other books or movies don’t do any good for the book… because the expectation is never quite lived up to….

Now onto this book, I actually liked 90% of this book quite a bit….Corrine was a likable character and I really was curious as to what memories she was blocking from her past…. Zoe was the perfect crazy stalker character….. Jude quite frankly was just a weak man…. I believe everyone has the right to forgive somebody for cheating…. but in my book cheating is cheating is cheating is cheating….

I also liked the structure of this book…. told from both Corrine and Jude’s point of view…. we found out about the holes in Corrine’s memory right along with her…. there are some definite twists and turns I did not see coming, and a twist I was expecting that never happened…. probably would have even rated this book a bit higher if it weren’t for the ending… the ending frustrated and nauseated me just a little….

Would recommend to fans of Dark erotica….

She used to be your best friend. Now she’s your worst enemy.

When Lizzy Beresford discovers a threatening letter addressed to her, the words on the old, tattered paper chill her to the bone. But who sent it? Living in pretty cottage in a quiet country village, Lizzy’s never made any enemies in her life…

Except her sister.

Lizzy hasn’t spoken to Emma in years. Not since the argument which tore their relationship apart. Would her sister really want to cause her harm after all this time?

As Lizzy receives more disturbing messages, she begins to doubt those closest to her – her boyfriend, her best friend, her neighbours.

Because the mystery sender seems to know everything about her. And after a series of malicious incidents, it’s clear they won’t stop until they’ve destroyed her life.

Lizzy knows she must confront her sister. But can she trust her? And will she realise the shocking truth, before it’s too late?

From the bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Child Next Door, this utterly addictive psychological thriller will have you gasping at every twist and will make you question everyone you know. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Sister this book is for you.

The Rules of Rebellion by Amity Hope @AmityHopeauthor @EntangledTeen #bookreview

Happy Thursday all! Today I’m happy to bring you my review for a fun clean young adult contemporary…A lovely book filled with fabulous characters whether you are a young adult or not this is a nice refreshing read

💕The Rules of Rebellion

The Rules of Rebellion by Amity Hope

Synopsis

1. Skinny dip (her idea)
2. Stargaze (his idea)
3. Prank someone (her idea)
4. Go on a date (his idea)

Leo Zimmerman has had a crush on his curvy friend Kylie Jenkins since forever, so when he discovers the girl with a flair for candy making has a newfound plan to rebel against her overbearing parents, he’s determined to be the one to help her carry it out. Who better than himself to show her the ropes of letting loose?

Sure, taking her to her first high school party, helping her sneak out of the house, or watching a sunset together isn’t exactly a hardship, but much harder is masking his feelings the more time they spend together. And when he suggests adding “a first date” to Kylie’s plan and she accepts…suddenly all his dreams seem to be coming true.

But Leo’s got a secret that could change everything between them, and it’s only a matter of time before it comes to the surface.

Review

4 Fun Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was just a fun clean read…. kylie is every parents dream child and every younger sisters worst nightmare…. after continual badgering from Little Sister for being such a goody goody…. Kylie decides to come up with a list of rebellious acts she wants to commit during her senior year…. topping her list skinny-dipping, but not really….

Kylie was such a real and extremely likable character…. someone you would have loved to be friends with in high school, especially because she brought yummy treats for you to taste test(She wanted to make candy after graduation)…. actually more important than that she was just a kind caring person…. Leo fines Kylie‘s list and decides to ask her if he can help her out with it…. because he has had a crush on her forever…. Leo was a good guy… the kind of guy you would absolutely love your daughter to date ….the problem though is Kylie’s not allowed to date….

So Kylie and Leo sneak around and of course get caught, but things are even more complicated than that….

It was interesting how different Kylie and Leo’s parents parenting styles were…. although both sets of parents love their children…. I might have analyzed it a bit and thought what I would have done in the situation… but as I know every child is different and every situation is different and just because something worked for me doesn’t mean it’s going to work for somebody else….

Strongly recommend when you’re just in the mood for a good clean read and if you aren’t a young adult it’s a bit nostalgic….

Bookouture extract – Dying Truth

Dying Truth by Angela Marsons

Prologue

Saturday 7.52 p.m.

Kim knew that her left leg was broken.

She pulled herself along the path on her hands as the stone bit into her palms, shards of gravel embedding beneath her fingernails.

A cry escaped her lips as her ankle turned and pain shot around her body.

Sweat beads were forming on her forehead as the agony intensified.

Finally, she saw the light from the building as three familiar shapes hurtled out of the doorway.

All three of them headed towards the bell tower.

‘Nooo…’ she cried, as loudly as she could.

No one turned.

Don’t go up there, she willed silently, trying to pull herself towards them.

‘Stop,’ she shouted out as they entered the metal doorway at the base of the tower.

Kim tried to still the panic as they disappeared from view.

‘Damn it,’ she screamed with frustration, unable to reach them in time.

She gathered all her strength and pushed herself up to a standing position, trying to drag her broken leg behind her as though it didn’t exist.

Two steps forward and the pain radiated through her body like a tidal wave and brought her back down to the ground. She gagged as the nausea rose from her stomach and her head began to swim.

She shouted again but the figures had disappeared from view and were now in the belly of the tower, behind solid brick, mounting the stone steps to the top.

‘Please, someone help,’ she screamed, but there was no one to hear. She was a good eighty metres away from the school, and she had never felt so helpless in her life.

She glanced at her wrist and saw that it was three minutes to eight.

The bell was due to be rung bang on the hour.

The fear started in the pit of her stomach and grew like a cloud to fill her entire body.

She struggled forward another agonising step, dragging her useless leg behind her.

Torchlight illuminated the top of the tower.

Damn it, they were already there.

‘Stop,’ she cried again, praying that one of them would hear her even though she knew her voice wouldn’t carry that distance.

The shafts of light moved furtively around the tower balcony ninety feet up in the air.

She saw a fourth figure amongst the three that were familiar to her.

The watch on her wrist vibrated the top of the hour. The bell didn’t ring.

Please God, let them get down.

Her prayer was cut off as she heard a loud scream.

Two people were hanging from the bell rope, swinging back and forth, in and out of the torchlight that darted around the small space.

Kim squinted, trying to identify the two silhouettes, but they were too far away.

She tried to regulate her breathing in order to shout again, even though she knew no kind of warning would help them now.

Her worst fears had been realised.

‘Please, please…’ Kim whispered as she saw the bell rope swing back and forth once more.

One figure was snatched from the bell rope as the second continued to swing.

‘No,’ Kim screamed, trying to carry herself forward towards them.

The fear inside had turned ice cold, freezing her solid.

For a few seconds time stood still. The saliva in her mouth had gone leaving her unable to speak or shout.

Kim felt the ache that started in her heart when the remaining figure and the swinging bell rope disappeared from view.

Her ears suddenly filled with a blood-curdling, tortured scream.

But no one else was around.

The scream came from her.

Review

5 Fab Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Kylie Scott is hands-down one of my absolute favorite romance authors…. she writes the most fabulous characters…. all with such amazing senses of humor and self awareness…. especially when it comes to her male characters… I think I’ve fallen in love with all of them and Eric is no exception…. this book was told entirely from the male point of view and I loved it…. I think the only thing I missed out on a little was getting to know Jean a bit better….

Eric is the player… he’s never been in a committed relationship…. and he is definitely not getting involved with seven months pregnant Jean, babies kind of scare him…. Eric’s inner dialogue throughout this entire book was quite hilarious…. I found his character development so wonderful and reel….. The friendship that develops between him and Jean was refreshing and his moments with baby Ada were quite adorable….. I love a good friends to lovers story and this one was perfection!

You can read this book as a standalone, although characters from the previous books are definitely involved… and bonus the StageDive boys make an appearance…and Mal was up to his same old shenanigans, loved that!

 About MELT FOR YOU

A wallflower gets seduction tips from a playboy athlete—until love changes the rules.

Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday—with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks.

Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type—at all—but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.

Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man—and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.

Rebel Heir by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward – @NarratorMaxine @PenelopeAuthor @ViKeeland #SebastianYork #MaxineMitchell

Rebel Heir

Rebel Heir by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌠 Narration Perfection Stars

Synopsis

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Review

Gia is an author……..well, she’s bagged herself a book deal, her first book, the thing is, she hasn’t written it yet!

She decides to go away for the summer to get some inspiration and her creative juices flowing, and gets a nice little house to rent on the beach, a friend of hers works at the fancy bar/restaurant so she has company too…..perfect!

Gia’s friend calls her one evening to ask her to cover for her behind the bar as she has a family emergency, even though she doesnt have that much experience, she agrees, i mean how difficult can it be?

The answer to this comes quickly when people start ordering cocktails she has never heard of, charging customers wrong, and basically having a pretty crappy time.

What is making this worse is that there is a man watching her from the other side of the bar, he doesn’t fit in with the rest of the posh people here, he has a black leather jacket and jeans on, she asks him what he wants to drink, and promptly charges him wrong…..this wouldn’t be a problem, but it turns out to be the boss, oh and he owns the place, his name….Rush!

Rush……ahh Rush 😍

Most people that work at the restaurant think he is a bit of a dick, and he does come across that way, but Gia doesn’t take any crap from anyone and gives as good as she gets, which seems to please Rush.

An unlikely friendship forms between them both and then romance, but a big unforeseen spanner gets thrown in the works, and things may not turn out how they both hope.

This ends in a cliffhanger, but don’t worry, you won’t have to wait long, as book 2 comes out in a few weeks

🎧🎧 Narrated by the always sexy voiced Sebastian York #SebYesPlease and the totally gorgeous Maxine Mitchell.
They will set your earphones on fire with their sexual chemistry and witty one liners.

Enjoy the Rush,

Vicci
