{ARC REVIEW} P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

{ARC REVIEW} P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! So, the quick and short of it is this: Kasie West can do no wrong in my eyes and her books are golden! She’s an auto-read/buy author for me, has been ever since the first contemp I read of hers. We have a very compatible writer-reader relationship, and I feel like when it comes to YA romance and characters, she’s going to be a solid, dependable 5-star read […]

{ARC Review} Cream of the Crop (Hudson Valley #2) by Alice Clayton

  **Note:  This book was provided to the Book Hookup by the publisher but that did not in any way influence this review!!   This is the second book in the Hudson Valley series, this time about sassy marketing executive, Natalie, and creamery owner/cheese maker, Oscar.  This story had some laugh out loud moments and some smoking hot romance.  The characters were unique and their chemistry practically leapt off the pages.  I loved how both […]

{flailing top shelf review} Broken Juliet (Starcrossed #2) by Leisa Rayven

5 glorious stars, one of the best series EVER I am emotionally drained in the best possible way. Ethan and Cassie’s journey has been so intense, so real, so heartbreaking and finally so healing. (Also HOTTTT). This book didn’t just mention/gloss over Cassie’s heartache, it made me, the reader, go back with Cassie and experience all the ugly hurt in order to move forward. It wasn’t pretty and I didn’t expect to feel the devastation, […]

{review} The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

{review} The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

4.5 Totally consuming stars. Lately I haven’t been into high fantasy books at all, or YA for that matter…but this is an Amy Harmon book, my friends. Also, as I skimmed the initial reviews (yes only skimmed because I’m a spoiler-phobe) I saw over and over again that this story held a romance. Right there, that is what pushed me to click and buy. It certainly helped that everyone was saying how powerful and poetic Ms. […]

{ARC Review} Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes

{ARC Review} Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Ms. Stokes has an effortless way with balancing the beauty of real-life angst and falling in love in all of her novels. With genuine characters on deliberate paths to bettering themselves, you can’t help but fall in love with Girl Against the Universe and cheer on Maguire and Jordy as the Universe conspires against them and they fight back. ♥ Review: In Girl Against the Universe we discover two teens struggling to find a balance […]

{Review} All Lined Up (Rusk University #1) by Cora Carmack

{Review} All Lined Up (Rusk University #1) by Cora Carmack

  Let’s be clear here…I could not possibly love Carson any more than I do!  He’s determined, hard-working, sexy, sweet, and swoonworthy!  His determination to achieve his goals and make his family proud almost overshadows what his heart wants…Dallas.  But, thankfully, this amazing guy gives in to the emotions pulling him towards the girl who’s taboo, the one he shouldn’t want, the one who could jeopardize his future…his coach’s daughter. I love forbidden romances and […]

{ARC REVIEW:} The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen

{ARC REVIEW:} The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 2.5 stars! This book wasn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination because I did feel the need to see how things played out and read the book in its entirety as opposed to calling it quits. However, my inability to connect with the characters definitely played a major role in my lower rating, which is quite a shame because after I read the book synopsis, I felt like this book had enough […]
