Broken (The Guitar Face Series #1)
By: Sasha Marshall

Henley Hendrix survives a crash that kills her closest band mate. She’d like nothing more than to retire from music, to hide, to heal, to disappear. She’s tried. But her family is music royalty. Her brother is a rock star in his own right, and every friend she has is connected to the business one way or another.

I'll get sucked back in. I'm scared I won't survive rock-n-roll again. Won’t survive Jagger, won’t be able to put him back in the box.

Jagger Carlye is Henley’s dirty little secret. Rock god, her brother's best friend, part of his band, and someone who loves the guitar as much as she does. Henley’s loved him since she was a girl, but there are some things you don’t do in this world. One of them is that you don’t risk your brother’s band or your heart in an industry that feeds on rejection and scandal. Love might not be enough in a world that grinds you down and puts you in a fishbowl.

And then there is Kip. My b…

Just Lucky Review

Just Lucky
By: Melanie Florence

Fifteen-year-old Lucky loves her grandparents. True, her grandmother forgets things, like turning the stove off, or Lucky's name, but her grandfather takes such good care of them that Lucky doesn't realize how bad things are . . . until she loses her grandfather and is left caring for her grandmother on her own. When her grandma sets the kitchen on fire, Lucky can't hide what's happening any longer, and she is sent into foster care. She quickly learns that some families are okay, and some aren't. And some really, really aren't. None of them feel like home. And they're certainly not family.

Well guys, I just don't know about this one. I'm hoping that by writing this review I'll be better able to figure out how I felt about Just Lucky enough to rate it, because at this point, I don't know if I liked it or not. So, bear with me as I try to figure out j…

Something I'm Good At (Sol del Mar High #1)
By: Caroline Andrus

Summer was the girl who had it all: good grades, a spot on the high school volleyball team, and a best friend since elementary school. Then she was diagnosed with lupus...and her best friend betrayed her. Now she’s cutting ties, because nobody should have to deal with someone as broken as her.

Kane is the guy who never gives up. When he puts his mind to something, he gets it done—no matter how many broken bones it takes. So when a chance encounter at the urgent care throws him in the path of Summer, the girl he’s secretly had a crush on for years, he’s determined to win her heart.

Despite her vow to keep people away, Summer finds herself falling for Kane’s charm. Will the boy who never gives up be able to win—and keep—the heart of the girl who is afraid to let people in?

Rebound Boyfriend Review

Rebound Boyfriend (Varsity Girlfriends #3)
By: Daphne James Huff

I am 100%, completely, totally over Jeremiah. After all, he’s the one who dumped me.  For my best friend.  Via text message.

2 days before Christmas.

So I did what any self-respecting head cheerleader would do: I started dating his teammate. Who’s great. Really.  But now Jeremiah keeps looking at me like he misses holding me just as much as I miss being in his arms. And we’ve been paired up for the most important history project of my entire life.
Can my heart survive this? Or should I hope for another shot with the only boy I’ve ever loved? I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. So, let's talk about how much I am loving this Varsity Girlfriends series, as a whole. I was ridiculously excited when I saw this book up for review on Netgalley and was immediately all over it. This series just gives me the warm fuzzies and I am living for it. That being said, this is a second chance novel which is a…

Unfinished Review

Unfinished
By: Julieann Dove

Brian and Marcie were supposed to live happily ever after--they repeated vows that stated that very sentence. So no one, especially Brian, could have predicted that Marcie would file for divorce. It was difficult to fight the situation, finding that all his possessions were packed and waiting by the door when he came home from work that Thursday evening. 

Kate Moore sat in a stupor for a month. Unlike any other breakup she had experienced, this felt more like a drive by shooting, with her ex holding the smoking gun as he sped away. What happened, she asked herself, knee-deep in peanut butter cups and bags of cheese doodles. Oliver was the man she was going to marry...she'd already pinned a secret board of wedding dresses and honeymoon destinations. 

1247 Sycamore Street, Apartment A and B respectively, is where Kate and Brian find themselves after their tumultuous breakups. An unlikely relationship would soon ensue between these shattered souls, and '…

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Before I started reading this book I was so intrigued by the main characters in it being gay. That is actually the main reason I chose to review it. We all know I love the young adult genre and to branch out within the genre excited me more…
