{Review} Until Now (Not Yet #2) by Laura Ward

{Review} Until Now (Not Yet #2) by Laura Ward

  Wow!  I thought I knew what to expect from this book…after all, I’ve read many stories with a similar premise.  But, boy did I get more than I bargained for.  This story was so much more than just a romance.  Everything about this book tugged at my heart and pulled at my emotions…I smiled, I sighed, I sobbed.  If you dive into this story, and, trust me, you definitely should, be prepared to lose […]

{Review} Fake Fiancee by Ilsa Madden-Mills

{Review} Fake Fiancee by Ilsa Madden-Mills

  Don’t judge me but I have to confess…originally, it was the cover that had me interested in this book.  Seriously, I could stare and stare.  Luckily, the story behind the cover captured my attention and had me turning the pages quickly.  This is a sweet, sexy, NA romance that’ll have you swooning and sighing.  Max and Sunny’s story had some twists and turns but wasn’t overly angsty or filled with drama…it was just a […]

*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 […]

{Review} Say You Want Me (Return to Me #2) by Corinne Michaels

{Review} Say You Want Me (Return to Me #2) by Cori..

  This was such a great read.  What starts out as a fun romance between a swoony, southern cowboy and a feisty, independent woman turns into an emotional roller coaster because of a twist in the story.  Be prepared with some tissues folks, this one will likely make you misty. Angie doesn’t want to change her life just because she’s discovered that she’s pregnant.  Wyatt wants to take care of her and have her and […]

{review} My Roommate’s Girl by Julianna Keyes

{review} My Roommate’s Girl by Julianna Keye..

What a refreshing New Adult romance! I loved the storyline and the conflict it presented. Before you worry, this had no cheating! I know some of you can’t tolerate it, so no need to stress. Aidan didn’t allow for that…but he certainly wasn’t an angel by any stretch of the imagination and that’s what I loved about him. The story started out totally from the male point of view of Aidan. He was rough around the edges […]

{ARC Review} Secondborn (Secondborn #1) by Amy A. ..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the Author but that did not in any way influence this review!   Epic. Captivating. Blockbuster.  Need I say more? Once again, Ms. Bartol has created a world with such depth and creativity that I’m left in awe of her skill.  The dystopian society that she’s fashioned in this story is rich with detail and complexity, and so very very vivid.  Once you enter this […]

{Review} The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

{Review} The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

  Once again Lauren Blakely makes me swoon, laugh, and sigh.  This sweet story about a single Dad and his forbidden attraction to the Nanny brought all the feels and captured my heart.  This is definitely a feel-good story and, as it turns out, exactly what I needed.  Page after page, I couldn’t help but smile, laugh, and get giddy over Simon and Abby’s story. Simon is sexy, swoony and sweet.  He has a big […]

{top shelf review} Luca (Ruin & Revenge #2) by Sarah Castille

{top shelf review} Luca (Ruin & Revenge #2) b..

This book, omg THIS BOOK!! I loved Luca it. The intensity of…everything! It started with the attraction between Luca and Gabrielle which was dark, deadly, passionate and consuming. It made me feel alive the same way it did Gabrielle. I could feel the crackle in the air the second I met them. The first glance, Luca right off the bat admitted his attraction/interest/infatuation with Gabriel, and I like that she straight up went to go see him […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the Publisher via Net Galley but that did no in any way influence this review!   This is a story about two very tortured souls.  It’s about finding that special place to call home and that person who brings you peace and helps you take control of your life.  This book brought all the emotions – some serious highs and lows.  So, for me, it […]
