*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!   I am now completely convinced that K.A. Tucker can write anything and make it great.  One thing I know for sure is that each book I’ve picked up by this author has completely captured my attention.  Each story is different than the one that came before it not only […]

{review} Purple Hearts: A Novel by Tess Wakefield

{review} Purple Hearts: A Novel by Tess Wakefield

I really enjoyed this military romance. Often the hero is brooding (my favorite), but even more appealing was that this plot seemed a little different so I was ready to jump in. And Ms. Wakefield pulled it off; I was intrigued by Luke from the start. I liked the fact that he seem to have demons to fight, especially his addictions. I’m a sucker for a sexy hero with plenty of baggage. Interestingly enough I didn’t […]

{review} The Heartbeat Hypothesis by Lindsey Frydm..

So the first thing that drew me to this book was the cover, I’m not going to lie. Just look at his butt it. 😉 Then I read the synopsis and it sounded like a deeply emotional story so I knew I had to read it. The plot of the story is great, but I’m a stickler for details, and I’m not sure that Audra would really be able to contact the donor’s family, and […]

{ARC REVIEW} Definitions of Indefinable Things by ..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 2 stars! Sadly, I knew very early on (like, by page six or so) that this title just wasn’t going to work for me. Yet, much to my amazement–and utter frustration–I just couldn’t walk away from it. It had some positive aspects that I really wanted to have outshone all the negative, however that was never really the case for me. ♥ Review: Generally, I’m not in the business of being an asshole […]

{ARC REVIEW} Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer

{ARC REVIEW} Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmere..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4.5 stars! Some times there are books that just speak directly to your heart, and this was one of those books for me. Emotionally engaging and heavy-hitting with the angst, Letters to the Lost kept me glued to its pages and rooting for its characters the entire time. ♥ Review: I couldn’t–nor did I even want–to set this book down. I neglected all my adult responsibilities yesterday and just curled up on the couch […]

* Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author via her publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   Oh, Sarina Bowen, you’ve done it again. You’ve written a book that is so painfully sweet, heartbreakingly powerful, and yet so incredibly innocent, that it touched my very soul.  You took me to a world that I knew a little about and pulled back the curtains, showing me […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danie..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars! Great characters and an intriguing plot made this book a quick, fun read. With the small incorporation of several genres, I feel like this novel has a bit of something for everyone. ♥ Review: The Hidden Memory of Objects was an entertaining read that can be easily broken down into bullet points to highlight its greatest assets: • 5-star-worthy characters bursting with personality and a heroine that I had little […]

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma Scott

{top shelf review} The Butterfly Project by Emma S..

I loved this story! This is the 3rd Emma Scott book I have read, and she is 3 for 3 – she writes amazingly deep and emotional love stories that touch me and make my heart full. Both Zelda (I wasn’t a fan of her name but went with it) and Beckett were very broken, and neither from your typical New Adult baggage. Both of them were still strong, trying to live their lives but not doing a very […]

{ARC REVIEW} Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner

{ARC REVIEW} Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3.5 stars! Enriched with Russian folklore and a girl that knew her way around a bow-and-arrow and came equipped with an ax, Spooner certainly took creative liberties in this darker retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Sprinkled throughout the storyline were lessons on life, love, and our wants for unfulfilled desires, and how sometimes what we want has been right in front of us all along. While I definitely enjoyed their strength of […]
