Twist (Dive Bar #2) by Kylie Scott

3-stars
Overall Rating: 3 Stars
Title: Twist
Author: Kylie Scott
Series: Dive Bar #2
Format: Audiobook purchased from Audible

Synopsis:
When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he’s been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they’re emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets… apart from the one that really matters.

And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.

Coming Soon: Mini-Reviews {September 2018}

Good morning, book lover friends!

I’m currently trying not to cry because I can’t find a way to watch the Discovery of Witches TV show here in the US! That book series is one of my all-time favorites and it’s killing me not to be able to see those characters come to life.

Anyway…

Here are the reviews that are coming up over the next few weeks + their mini-reviews!

Lick (Stage Dive #1) by Kylie Scott

3-stars
Overall Rating: 3 Stars
Title: Lick
Author: Kylie Scott
Series: Stage Dive Book 1
Format: Audiobook purchased from Audible

Synopsis:
Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.

Review

Anytime I read a 3-star book, I always question myself.

It makes me wonder if maybe I’m not fully paying attention or if the timing was wrong… sometimes those things play a part, I’m sure.

For this particular book, it just didn’t do it for me and I don’t think it was timing.

Book Haul: February 2018

I would like everyone to take a moment and notice that I, shockingly, did not download 8 million free Kindle ebooks this month.

Thank you, thank you. I know. First time for everything.

Of course, I fully balanced that out by spending money on a bunch of audiobooks.

In my defense, Audible had a sale and I cannot be held responsible.

Anyway, here is my February Book Haul!

Favorite Romance Novels of 2017

favorites

Oh. My. Goodness.

This year has been such an epic reading year for me. Not necessarily in the amount of books I’ve read, but more in that I discovered so freaking many amazing books and authors all in one year!

My Goodreads goal this year was 100 books and I completed that goal just in time this month. Now, I’m off re-reading all the books I’ve become obsessed with thanks to this goal.

Screen Shot 2017-12-21 at 12.18.59 PM.png

2017 was the year I discovered auto-buy authors like Mariana Zapata, Rainbow Rowell, Laura Kaye, Jay Crownover, Helena Hunting, Sierra Simone, Sally Thorne, Lauren Rowe, and Penny Reid. I know, RIGHT?!

I also discovered a few series that I burned through in a matter of days, characters and stories that have stuck with me, oh, and I wrote and published a novel that I love, too!

These are my absolute favorite romance reads of 2017

Book Haul 08.07.17 [Library Bookstore, eBooks, & Audiobooks]

book-haul

Ok, I am seriously trying not to load my Kindle up with so many free ebooks, and if you’ve seen my past hauls, you’ll notice this week’s haul is significantly less than others. At least, as far as ebooks go.

I immediately made up for that by perusing my local library’s bookstore and picking up a ton of books. In my defense, I also donated a big reusable bag full of books that I knew I wasn’t ever going to get around to reading. My hard copy TBR shelf is overflowing once again, though.

If a room without books is a room without a soul, then my house has so many souls it’s basically a cemetery.

That came out way more morbid than I intended.

Anyway, onward to last week’s haul!

Trust by Kylie Scott

[Audiobook Purchased from Audible]

Trust

Goodreads synopsis:

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen-year-old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

Review

My favorite thing about Trust was how gloriously healthy the relationship between Edie and John was. Combined with diverse and interesting characters, a touch of a slow burn, and some drama, I can see why so many people have been loving this book. I know I did.
