{ARC Review} Fallen Heir (The Royals #4) by Erin Watt

{ARC Review} Fallen Heir (The Royals #4) by Erin W..

  What could be better than a book about Easton Royal?  A book about Easton from his own POV!!!  Being inside his head not only helped me better understand him but it also made me fall deeper under his spell.  From the very first book in this series, Easton has fascinated me.  He’s broken, he’s troubled, and he’s sexy as all heck!  I expected to be witness to his jokes, his dirty thoughts, and his […]

{ARC Review} Hello Forever (Pay it Forward #2) by ..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author through her publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   What an emotional roller coaster!  Once again, Ms. Bowen gave me a story that brought me to tears, filled my heart with hope, and strengthened my belief in soulmates!  This second-chance M/M romance had everything I could want…a forbidden love, an underlying innocence, and the characters’ determination to find […]

{ARC REVIEW} Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

{ARC REVIEW} Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3 stars! Even though I desperately tried to manage my expectations for this novel because Crowley’s Graffiti Moon is one of my all-time favorites, I fear I missed the mark. I almost want to cry because I didn’t love this more. It’s not that it’s a terrible book by any stretch of the imagination because I enjoyed it quite a bit, it’s just that it didn’t hold a candle to her previous […]

{ARC REVIEW} One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

{ARC REVIEW} One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManu..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4 stars, but I might even boost it to 4.5–maybe even 5 stars–at some point. I’m just going off pure post-book-high at the moment, and my gut is telling me four stars, though I’m not quite sure what caused the deduction. Highly engaging with an interesting plot and a dynamic cast of characters, One of Us Is Lying had me picking up this book with every free moment I had to spare. And […]

  ♥ Review: I’m sure if you’re an avid reader or if you’ve been following my reviews for any period of time, then you know about Sarah J. Maas and her books, particularly this series. (If not, no worries, I just highly recommend you rectify that and then come back later to thank me.) Okay, so this book, it published ten days ago and it was an act of sheer will that I didn’t pounce on it […]

{Review} Overruled (The Legal Briefs #1) by Emma Chase

{Review} Overruled (The Legal Briefs #1) by Emma C..

  This book is a roller coaster for the heart and mind.  The characters will challenge you to be open to their views of the world and to understand their feelings. You may not always agree with their thinking but you will definitely understand where they’re coming from. This is so much more than just a romance. For me, Stanton and Sofia were perfect for each other…but their road to happiness was a somewhat frustrating […]

{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 […]

{5-star ARC REVIEW} Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 5 heart-snatching, heart-mending stars! Mr. Zentner spent my emotions like quarters at an arcade. My body got confused about why the tears were falling as I traversed through the happy and heartbreaking moments that filled these pages. It was a bittersweet joy to watch four boys meet and see why Sauce Crew was formed in Carver’s memories. Then it was a striking ache in my chest to see how he would never be the same again after his […]
