Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely

5 OOHLALA STARS with a chocolate croissant on the side! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


They say Paris is always a good idea…

You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can’t even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let’s not even mention how I’ll ever make it through a day at my new office.

Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he’s charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me. Soon, I can order a croque monsieur hold the ham, discuss perfume with my co-workers, and barter at the outdoor market. I can also tell the sexy Brit by my side how much I want him to kiss me under the streetlamps.

Except there’s a catch – Paris might be all we have.
One more assignment before I can take off on my big adventure…

And it’s a good farewell gig too since my newest client is a fetching American who loves to explore the cafes and cobbled streets while I teach her the language of love. We fall into a fast and flirty friendship, but Paris has a way of making lovers out of friends, and soon we’re spending our nights together too – très risqué. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and soon I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.


Aww this book was just SWEET….. from the adorable swoon worthy love story,to the delicious chocolates and other treats, to the lovely perfume….Lauren Blakely does it again!

Joy is starting over with a new dream job in Paris…. I love this girl…. I would love to go to Paris and have a chocolate croissant with her and talk about fragrance with her (I just so happen to have a bit of a fragrance obsession myself)…. not to mention she got super excited about a hot pink door…. I mean I get it, it’s a hot pink door! Who wouldn’t want to live there? I really adored her energy and her positivity, absolutely a girl I’d love to hang out with….. something Miss Blakely is always brilliant at, creating super relatable and likable female MCs….. and this is not an easy thing apparently because I read so many books especially in the Romance genre with girls you want to reach through the pages and shake into reality! So thank you Lauren!

Griffin wasn’t too bad either…. he really was the perfect blend of strong, sweet, manly, and vulnerable….. and you’ve got to love a man who is super devoted to his family always earns major bonus points…..

Don’t want to get too into Griffin and Joy’s love story…. because it is a journey I want you to savor as much as I did… just trust me it is delicious and well worth the read/listen…. something I do want to mention though is I really loved the discussion of language and idioms I found it super fascinating….. made me want to learn another language (but I’m sure I will be over that in the morning)…. also want to mention I’m not necessarily a huge fan of the British accent… however Richard Armitage has absolutely changed my mind😍

This book is an absolute must read for all romance fans💕 currently out on audio and being released in print in March….

*** i’d like to thank Lauren Blakely and Ink Slinger PR for a copy of this audiobook ***

🎧🎧🎧 The audio narration was fabulous! Five huge stars for Grace Grant and Richard Armitage 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

As I mentioned above I’m not necessarily a huge fan of the male English accent, however Richard Armitage really has quite the voice! 💗 he also did a good job with the American female accent… Grace Grant made me want to sit down and have a conversation with her she was that fun to listen to…. and she did a wonderful job with the mail British accent as well…..

I just have to say I am in love with the fact that this book came out on audio before print…. as a long time audiobook listener from back in the day when I had to flip the tape over to now… it is amazing how far audiobooks have, and how far spread the love is. 💕

Melanie Moreland – Bio:

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

MIDNIGHT VALENTINE by J.T. Geissinger is available today! You don’t want to miss getting your hands on this stunning new novel – check out all  of the details below and read a sneak peek!



True love never dies.

Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.

Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye.

When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.

Is a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love possible, or is a broken heart the cruelest kind of liar?

Read an excerpt from MIDNIGHT VALENTINE:

“Hi, there, Megan, this is Coop.”

“Hi, Coop. What’s up?”

Long, awkward pause.

“Uh…I’m still standin’ outside your house.”

I walk to the windows, and there he is, out on the sidewalk near his truck.

“Are you having car problems?”

“No, I’m, uh, just waitin’ on Theo. He’s comin’ out to see you. I texted him what you said, and, uh…” Coop clears his throat. “Well, anyway, he’s on his way. I thought I’d give you a heads-up.”

The circus never stops with this guy. “That’s unfortunate, Coop, because I just got off the phone with Craig from Capstone. He’s going to handle the job.”

Coop scoffs. “Craig? That self-important S.O.B.? You like flushin’ your money down the toilet?”

“No, I don’t. Which is why I negotiated a discount.”

“Lemme guess. He probably quoted you…” He thinks for a moment, looking up at the house, then names a number which is only a few hundred dollars off from Craig’s quote, which is very irritating.

“You seem like a nice guy, Coop, but this conversation is pointless, considering your boss has no interest in working with me.”

“I never said that,” he says quickly. Our gazes meet through the window. I see how serious he is suddenly, his easy grin nowhere in sight.

“I wasn’t going to tell him you did,” I say, sensing this is somehow a matter of great importance.

When Coop blows out a breath, looking relieved, my hunch is proven right. Before I can say anything else, however, he straightens, looking down the street.

“He’s here.” He flashes me a look full of warning, then hangs up, steps out into the street, and holds up a hand.

Fascinated, I watch as a classic Mustang slowly rolls up the street, engine rumbling. It’s black, with windows tinted so dark I can’t see inside, and chrome wheels that gleam in the sun. The car stops in the middle of the street, then Coop walks over and bends down to the driver’s side window.

Several minutes pass and Coop is still standing there, talking to Theo. Or drawing pictures or whatever it is he does to communicate with Mr. Incommunicado.

“What the hell is it with this guy?” I mutter, growing more irritated by the moment.

Finally Coop straightens and the Mustang pulls up to the curb. The engine shuts off. I want to look away, but I’m rooted to the spot, staring out the front parlor window, waiting for what feels like an eternity until the driver’s door opens and Theo steps out.

Black hair.

It’s my first thought when his broad shoulders rise up over the roof of the car. I’ve only seen him in a raincoat, his head covered, but now I see he has a lot of thick, black hair, the length past the collar of his leather jacket. It’s messy. Windswept and untamed, like he only ever combs it with his fingers.

When he turns and looks toward the house, it’s like he knew exactly where I was standing. Our eyes meet with the sensation of a key fitting into a lock: a smooth, inevitable click.

A tremor runs through me, something close to fear but more primal, a pulse of restless energy that makes me want to break into a run.

I’ve never met anyone with more naked emotion in his eyes. His face is stony, but his eyes burn with a thousand unspoken things, all of which are dark.

I resist the urge to step back. We stare at each other until it becomes uncomfortable. I move first, turning to head to the front door, taking deep breaths to calm the sudden throbbing of my heart.

When I open the door, Coop and Theo are walking up the brick pathway toward the porch. Coop is in the lead, smiling nervously. “Hi, Megan!” he calls, as if he hasn’t seen me in forever.

“Hi, Coop. Long time no see.”

Coop ambles up the steps onto the porch that wraps around the front of the house, but Theo stops at the first step and looks at me, as if for permission.

“Sure, Dracula,” I say drily, unamused by this strange situation. “You’re welcome to come in. I’ll put away the garlic and crosses.”

A muscle in his jaw flexes. He doesn’t look amused, either. He steps slowly up, one big boot at a time, until he’s on the porch and I have to look up as he walks toward me with thunderclouds churning over his head. He stops a few feet away and stares down at me as Coop looks back and forth between us, visibly worried.

But I can’t pay attention to Coop anymore. Not with the boiling cauldron standing in front of me. The rumbling mountain of magma about to blow. The seething pool of silent emotions clad in a leather jacket and jeans. If I were a cop, I’d arrest this guy on the spot for disturbing the peace. All by himself, he’s a riot threatening to destroy the entire town.

On the left side of his neck, a snarl of scar tissue peeks over the collar of his shirt. His nose was broken once and not fixed well. There’s a ragged white scar above his left eyebrow that disappears into his hairline, and he walks with a barely perceptible limp, favoring his left side. And those dark, dark eyes. God, how they burn.

Whatever the accident was that he was involved in, it’s left its mark on this man, in more ways than one.

Baby Teeth

Baby Teeth


Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

3.5 controversial stars 🌟🌟🌟.5


Sweetness can be deceptive. 

Meet Hanna.

She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

Meet Suzette.

She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette’s husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.


I believe I’m going to bust out my complement sandwich for this review… as a refresher a complement sandwich is good/bad/good…. so in short the bad is sandwiched in between the good….. I also want to make it very clear that I read this with a group and I was in the true minority on this…. so the opinions in this review are absolutely my own and my review should be read with the understanding that this book is unquestionably not for everybody….

This book is about Hannah a seven-year-old who has some pretty major issues…. one of them being the fact that she wants to get rid of her mother…. for good….Suzette is an exhausted mother at the end of her rope, what has she done to deserve this child? As a mother I would love to believe that I would do all the right things in this situation, but next to Hannah, my children are absolute perfection (just don’t tell them that)….. I felt the author did a good job in the portrayal of the parents the overly stressed out mother and the oblivious father…. and the tension this would put on a relationship when Dad chooses to pretend that daughter is perfectly normal and mom wants to pull her hair out….

Now to the meat of the sandwich, the problems I had with this book…. hannah’s age was probably my biggest problem, I just found it very unbelievable that a child of her age was able to have the thought process and knowledge that she did no matter how gifted she was….. this I believe leads to the real problem if Hannah were 12(The age I believe A character who acted as she did was more apt to be) then she probably would have already been diagnosed and been in some major therapy…. however this also begs the question why was she not in major therapy at seven? Perhaps Alex and Suzette were not parents of the year, but they did take her to see several doctors and I’m not quite sure why more wasn’t done at a younger age? Although if something were done at a younger age we would not have had this book…. so perhaps that is the reason….

This was a quick page turning red that probably would be better classified as horror….. and if this is a genre you stay away from I’d definitely recommend staying away from this book…. this is a book that you can’t say you liked it, but I will say I appreciated it…. it definitely made me think, what would I do if I were this mother? And I believe sometimes it is hard not to judge in this situation, but I am a firm believer that unless you have walked in somebody’s shoes you really have no idea what is going on in their life and that’s kind of how I looked at this book….

So I’m going to take the easy way out and neither recommend this book or not recommend this book…. I’m going to leave it up to you, because this book evoked some pretty seriously strong reactions in people…. so if you choose to read it, read it knowing there is some disturbing content and it is 100% not for everybody….

*** thank you to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***





Fractured by Catherine McKenzie

4.5 stayed up all night reading stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5


Julie Prentice and her family move across the country to the idyllic Mount Adams district of Cincinnati, hoping to evade the stalker who’s been terrorizing them ever since the publication of her bestselling novel, The Murder Game. Since Julie doesn’t know anyone in her new town, when she meets her neighbor John Dunbar, their instant connection brings measured hope for a new beginning. But she never imagines that a simple, benign conversation with him could set her life spinning so far off course.

After a series of misunderstandings, Julie and her family become the target of increasingly unsettling harassment. Has Julie’s stalker found her, or are her neighbors out to get her, too? As tension in the neighborhood rises, new friends turn into enemies, and the results are deadly.


This is my second stellar book by, Catherine McKenzie, she is fast becoming a favorite! This book sucked me in from the very beginning….. told from dual viewpoints… Julie a successful author who moved her family across the country to avoid a stalker…. and John the husband and father who lives across the street, who might be a little too interested….. it is also told from different time periods… from before the incident… and after the incident… the incident that changed everything… the incident that you don’t have any idea of what it is until very late in the book… did Julie get killed? Did Julie cause something to happen? Or did it have to do with somebody else? These are questions I asked myself throughout this book….

This book had such lively and well developed characters… in particular Julie, the author trying to get that second book written after the amazing success of her first novel…. the first book that was said to have been loosely based on real life events, but how close is reality and fiction? And now that Julie has moved across the country to escape her stalker has she just found herself in the middle of another nightmare? The nosiest neighborhood ever? Throughout this book there were exerts from the neighborhood newsletter that were downright hilarious and over-the-top! (Well they were hilarious if you didn’t live in that neighborhood)

So as I said this book sucked me in and I literally stayed up all night reading and then at about 85%…… when things started getting revealed, I was like did I miss something? This book was way too amazing to end like this…. I was expecting a firework show and I got a sparkler(Just one sparkler) that’s not to say I hated the ending… I was just expecting so much more…. it was a nice pleasant happy ending…. but I guess I didn’t want nice, pleasant,and happy…. I wanted fireworks!

I would absolutely recommend this book, it was a fabulous page turner, the ending just was a little lackluster… but the book as a whole was wonderful!

~~~ interesting note you can also read a copy of Julie’s first best-selling book The Murder Game by Julie Apple. Brilliant right? Super excited to read this!

The Murder Game

This was a Traveling Sister read and as always it was amazing reading with these girls! We all quickly turned those pages…. I believe we were all a little disappointed with the ending…. we also are planning on reading Julie’s book together😍

🎧🎧🎧 five big stars for the multiple narrators of this book 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
All the narrators did fabulous Teri Clark Linden,Scott Merriment,Amy McFadden,and James Foster… with a special shout out to Amy for her amazing job with the neighborhood newsletters, always good for a laugh!





Escape by Jay Crownover

Rating 🌟🌟🌟·5 stars


Everything inside of him is screaming that he needs to run, he needs to go, he needs to escape.

Lane Warner is used to being overshadowed and overlooked.

After all, he’s the youngest brother and the most laid back one in the family. He’s the one known for going with the flow and not making waves, even when things seem to be at their worst.

Very few things in life have had the ability to rile Lane up and get under his skin. At the top of that list is his childhood friend Brynn Fox…no…Brynn Warner. The fact that they share a last name was the one thing that has the power to light him up and spin him out of control like no other. There was no calm, cool and collected when it comes to all the reasons why Brynn had to become part of his family.

It’s slowly killing him to keep wanting what he can’t have, so Lane sees only one way to stop himself from doing something they’ll both regret…he has to leave.

Everything inside of her is calling out to find him, to follow, to bring him home.

Brynn Warner is used to being stuck between a rock and a hard place.

After all, she’s the daughter of an unrepentant gold-digger who never once blinked at being the cause of her daughter’s pain and suffering.

Very few things in her life have ever brought happiness and a sense of security. At the very top of that list is Lane Warner. She has unwaveringly loved the youngest Warner since the first minute she laid eyes on him. He was everything Brynn ever wanted and everything she knew she could never have.

Sometimes the right choice is the one that hurts the most and Brynn’s had to make a few that felt like they might be the end of her.

When Lane takes off, one thing is clear, the only choice Brynn has is to go after him.She’s going to bring her wayward cowboy home….whatever it takes.


Ok, lets get this out of the way first.

Question: Did i realise that this book was #3 in a series before i greedily asked for it?

Answer: No, No i did not

Question: Do i have to have read the other 2 to be able to enjoy this one?

Answer: Nope, but it might help as you will have a little background of the characters.

Okay, so going in to this book you firstly have the prologue, this was written in 3rd person and it really was done well.

You know that really uncomfortable feeling where you look around at everyone else to see what they are doing, and they are looking everywhere else but the car crash that is happening in front of you?

Should you stay and watch? Or just slowly back away and leave 2 people to sort out their mess privately? Yep, that feeling.

Lane Warner and Brynn Fox have been friends forever, really, since they were children, but they have always carried a torch for each other, although never really done much about it, well apart from that one time that Lane proposed to her, and she turned him down!

The story moves to duel POV, one chapter each, and i loved being inside their heads and hearing their thoughts, many times i was shouting at my kindle JUST KISS HER DAMMIT!!!

Lane is the baby brother of the family, always trying to make his family proud.

Brynn has had a tough life and has always just wanted to be loved…….by Lane.

With a secondary story intwined in this book, the couple are thrown together to help out a young boy with an awful past.

I really enjoyed this one and will be reading the series from the start to catch up with the other characters in the book.

**Thank you to the author and InkSlinger for providing me with this book for an honest review**

Obsidian – Featured on Flashback Friday


Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Perfect YA Abs Stars


Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.


Ok so after some careful consideration with myself I have decided to only remove half a star (due to the lopsided smile thing) instead of a full one…….oh ok then I’ll make an exception just this ONCE!

The reason being is because I pretty much fell in love with this book, even Daemon.

Narration was perfect by Justine Eyre, and made me laugh out loud a few times, the people on the bus thought I was a bit of a weirdo, sitting there with a big goofy smile on my face chuckling to myself!

Anyway I’m sure everyone already knows the blurb by now so I’ll give it to you in a few quick notes.

Katie moves to a small town.
Goes next door to get directions to FOO LAND (Brought to you by the capital D).
Meets Daemon who is a bit of a douchebag but oh so swoonsome with a grrr dare I say it….Lopsided smile !!!!

Oh yeah. ………..and he’s an alien !!!!

Now that’s not a spoiler by the way, it is on the book blurb so hold your horses!!!!!

Loved all of the characters, and it wasn’t a Twilight rip off, I also loved the fact that Katie was a book nerd that did reviews and blogs and got excited about new releases, made me feel better about myself haha.

This is the 2nd book I have read by Jennifer Armentrout and I don’t think it will be the last, I really like her writing.

Am currently adding the rest of the series to my TBR pile ….. oh dear more books to read …Yay! !
