{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 […]

{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} 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 […]

{top shelf review} Wild Man (Dream Man #2) by Kris..

I know I said I loved Hawk, I know I said I loved Mitch, and Tack is great….but OH MY GOD, Brock Lucas, he’s the one for me.  This is my fourth Kristen Ashley book in one week. I might have a problem. Who am I kidding? There’s no problem here – this is heaven. I’ve read the Dream Man series out of order so I HAD to return to book 2. Brock Lucas, who we met in book […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the authors’ publicist but that did not in any way influence this review!   I’m always all kinds of happy when I have a Sarina Bowen or Elle Kennedy book in my hands…but, a book by both of them, well, that’s pure magic!  These two write stories with the perfect balance of swoon, humor, and realism.  Their characters feel like real people I’d like to […]

{TOP SHELF MINI REVIEW} A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas

{TOP SHELF MINI REVIEW} A Court of Wings and Ruin ..

  ♥ 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 […]
