{Review} Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

{Review} Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) b..

  This is the third book in this series and, as you probably predicted if you’ve read my reviews before, I once again failed to start a series from the beginning.  However, in this case, it did not make the story any less enjoyable.  Actually, it made me want to go back to read the ones I’ve missed because I think I may have fallen in love with the McKinney brothers!  This sweet love story […]

{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 […]

{Review} Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan

{Review} Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan

  Oh my heart!  It ached, it beat wildly, it rejoiced…it fell in love.  I feel like each and every book I read by Mia Sheridan touches me deeply.  Her characters always live very different lives than the one I’ve experienced, yet she’s able to put me in their shoes.  She has me feeling their sorrows, crying along with them, and feeling their love as if it were my own.  And, once again, she’s done […]

{ARC Review} Goodbye Paradise (Hello Goodbye #1) b..

* 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 […]

♥ 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 […]

{Review} Naughty by Nature by Addison Moore

{Review} Naughty by Nature by Addison Moore

  If there’s one thing I an count on it’s that I will enjoy every book that I read by Addison Moore.  She’s got the unique ability to write fantasy, contemporary, and romance books and make them all feel like that’s the only thing she does.  This book was everything I imagined it would be…sweet, humorous, romantic, and just a touch naughty.  It’s one of those stories that you read more quickly than you expect […]

{ARC REVIEW} The Heartbeats of Wing Jones by Kathe..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: Actual rating of 3.5 stars! Diversity and culture were an important factor in this book, just as much as Wing’s journey to realizing her self-worth and discovering that her outward differences made her better and stronger in some ways. The representation of a multitude of diverse characters this book had to offer had me falling in love with this book, but other aspects kept me from falling for it completely. ♥ Review: *long sigh* Damn, […]
