Dirty Together Review

Dirty Together (Dirty Billionaire, #3)
By: Meghan March

My wife. 

I love saying those words.

She’s mine, and if she thinks I’m going to let her run without tracking her down and bringing her back to where she belongs—with me—then she’s about to be introduced to a new reality.

Because I’ll fight dirty to give her the happily ever after she deserves.

Again this novel picks up where the second one left off with Creighton going to find Holly. The first few chapters of this book bored me because it was predictable and didn't add much to the overall story. I started to feel the book later when Holly and Creighton finally confess to loving each other and trying to make their marriage work, regardless of their differences or the unconventional beginning they had to their relationship. 

The author really tugged at our heartstrings in this book with Holly's mom coming back into her life and trying to make money by screwing Holly and Creighton over. The writing was so well done with it that I f…

Dirty Pleasures Review

Dirty Pleasures (Dirty Billionaire #2)
By: Meghan March

I did it. I married a billionaire.

My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.
I may have taken vows, but I’m still determined to be me.
Now his rules are taking over my world, but I’m not the kind of girl to just obey.
There’s only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…
I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.

This book focused more on the plot than the sex scenes unlike the first installment. It picked up right where the first one left off with Holly taking off and leaving Creighton, so we get to see his reaction to her leaving him first hand. It was very satisfying. He fights hard to find her and get to her as quickly as he can and then when they talk about their issues and what they want for each other it's a very sweet moment. Holly was confused by Creighton's a…

Dirty Billionaire Review

Dirty Billionaire (Dirty Billionaire Trilogy, #1)
By: Meghan March

I've got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That's pretty much where my bio ends. Honestly, I don't need to say anything else. I've just sold 99% of women on going home with me. 
Do I sound like an asshole to you?
That's because I am.
And guess what? It works for me just fine. 
Or at least it did.
Until I met her.
Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm. 
Only one problem. 
She didn't leave her name or number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life. Now I've had a taste of unicorn pussy—the sweetest, rarest of all pussy—and I need it again.
So what's an asshole to do?
I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.
And when I find her? I'm keeping her.

I don't know what it is lately but I've been obsessed with the free …

Have you ever noticed that erotic novels always seem to be chock full of stea…

Not so Fragile Review

Not so Fragile
By: Maq Lancaster
Letting people in is a daunting task for Valerie Morrison, and probably always will be. Confrontations are just never on her side, and she has enough scars—both physical and emotional—to prove it. That's why she chooses to avoid people whenever possible. Now studying at a university not too far from home, Val's plan is simple: keep her head low. Should be easy...

Except it isn't.

Because there's this guy named Louis (Lou for short) who is as kind as he is beautiful. Somehow, he looks beyond her walls and reaches in... and has other plans of just letting her be.

Here's the problem: Val doesn't do relationships, and she isn't planning on getting into one anytime soon, regardless of how tempting it may seem. At the end of the day, getting involved with Lou in any way can't be worth it... Right?

*NOTE: This 74,000+ word standalone novel deals with a sensitive subject matter.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest …

Battle Schooled! Review

Battle Schooled! (Chronicles of the Floating Continent #3)
By: Billy Wong

Rousing fantasy adventure with a few butt-kicking heroines.

Rupert, a young loner with a dark history, is sent by his parents to the University of Ostuh in hopes of him learning to be less withdrawn. He continues to avoid social contact until an extraordinary encounter with Meg and Patrick, famed monster hunters turned students.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Usually I'm a one-book-at-a-time kinda girl, but the book that I am currently reading isn't doing much to keep my attention and I happened to see the intriguing cover for Battle Schooled o…

Guilty Pleasures Blog

I was scrolling through my Facebook homepage the other day and came across a post from Goodreads about guilty pleasure reading, and at the end of the post they threw in a question asking their readers what guilty pleasure books they enjoy. I scrolled through some of the comments and read what other people's guilty pleasures are. I always enjoy seeing other's opinions on books and have taken some great recommendations from these types of posts. However, I very rarely participate in these types of comment threads. Books are very open to interpretation and opinion and no two people's views are the same. So, while I enjoy reading and reviewing I do not enjoy feeling as though I have to justify my opinion to others about my likes and dislikes of books. 

I'm not going to lie, a lot of my guilty pleasure's are also at the top of a lot of people's 'worst books' lists. And that's ok. I am well aware that a large majority of readers hate the Twilight books, bu…

This is Where it Ends Review

This is Where it Ends
By: Marieke Nijkamp

10:00 a.m. The principal of Opportunity High School finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

10:02 a.m. The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.

10:03 a.m. The auditorium doors won't open.

10:05 a.m. Someone starts shooting.

Told from four different perspectives over the span of fifty-four harrowing minutes, terror reigns as one student’s calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.

For the first time in what feels like forever, although realistically is probably only a few months, I wandered into my local bookstore - Manticore Books- and perused the Young Adult section looking for something new to read that I'd never heard of before. I passed up the all Sarah J Maas' that I've been impatiently waiting to add to my collection in favour of This is Where it Ends. There was no price on this specific book so I had to ask the…
