{ARC Review} Down Shift (Driven #8) by K. Bromberg

{ARC Review} Down Shift (Driven #8) by K. Bromberg

*Note:  This book was provided to the Book Hookup by the publisher via Net Galley but that did not in any way influence this review! Down Shift is the eighth book in the Driven series and, you guessed it, the first one I’ve read. However, it’s definitely a stand-alone so don’t let the fact that there are so many before it deter you from experiencing Zander and Getty’s story. This is a book filled with […]

{review} King (King #1) by T.M. Frazier

This book has been on my TBR for ages, and yes, I’m kicking myself for not getting to it earlier…but nothing like a whole bundle for 99c. I was in the mood for something a little gritty, a little outside the law, but most definitely kind of dirty…King totally fit the bill. Also —> LOOK. AT. THAT. COVER. The very beginning – while it set the stage I would have liked it done just a little differently. I […]

{ARC REVIEW} Like a River Glorious (The Gold Seer Trilogy #2) by Rae Carson

{ARC REVIEW} Like a River Glorious (The Gold Seer ..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! I was so pleased with this installment! The setting and characters felt and sounded very authentic to the Gold Rush era, and I loved almost every single second of it. In my review of Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first installment of this trilogy (you can find my review of it here), I said the following: “Things that I’m hoping to see more of in the second installment?  I’d really love […]

{ARC REVIEW} This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

{ARC REVIEW} This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! This Adventure Ends read like real life feels. With a dynamic cast of characters that easily work their way into your heart and witty dialogue that keeps them tethered there long-term, this book made itself a YA contemporary not to be missed. ♥ Review: I picked this book up early one morning, eager to get to it since I enjoyed the author’s previous book and because a few of my trusted […]

{Review} Lessons in Gravity (Study Abroad #2) by Jessica Peterson

{Review} Lessons in Gravity (Study Abroad #2) by J..

*Note:  This book was provided to the Book Hookup by the author but that did no in any way influence this review!   Once again I’ve started a series out of order.  Lucky for me, it did not cause any confusion, nor did it impact my enjoyment of this story or these characters.   Maddie and Javier’s story feels like a bit of a twist on books I’ve read before.  Normally, it’s the male lead who […]

{5-star ARC REVIEW} The Goal (Off-Campus #4) by El..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Ana:  5+++++ Stars!!!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tucker!!! I would also say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Elle Kennedy but that may sound a bit creepy (even though it’s true) so I’ll just admit to being in love with her writing! 🙂 Christina:  ALL THE STARS, but I guess I’ll settle for 5! *tosses a universe worth of them at Tucker* With each […]

{ARC REVIEW} Love Me Crazy by Camden Leigh

{ARC REVIEW} Love Me Crazy by Camden Leigh

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Perhaps if I would’ve been in a different mood and looking for a little more hotness and a little less on character development and plot, this one would’ve hit a higher mark for me. As it stands, though, I was missing the depth and connection with the characters and that ultimately pulled the rating down for me. Told in alternating dual narratives, Love Me Crazy was […]

{5-star REVIEW} The Assassin’s Blade (Throne of Glass 0.1 – 0.5) by Sarah J. Maas

{5-star REVIEW} The Assassin’s Blade (Throne..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 stars! I don’t know whether to say I should have read this sooner so that I could appreciate Celaena’s journey more or if I appreciate this book now that I’ve already seen how far she’s come since it. Either way, I know this series was made better because I read it, and I definitely think that you should read it, too! ♥ Review: There might be some slightly spoilery bits for […]

{top shelf review} Predator by Michelle Horst

{top shelf review} Predator by Michelle Horst

This story. This. Story. Wow, it was sooooo good. Yes, be warned the story is a dark one, but, as the author states it is not a dark romance. There’s definitely a difference. There is a lot of sadness (as in an overwhelming all consuming sadness), but there is also so much healing. This is about the journey Cara and Damian took to find peace as well as happiness. The writing was so smooth and […]
