{review} Fractured Love by Ella James

{review} Fractured Love by Ella James

I absolutely loved the characters Landon and Evie. And when I say loved, I mean LOVED. They were so rich, layered, deep and strong…yet totally vulnerable at the same time. The synopsis gives you a good idea of what the story is about. I’m not necessarily a fan of the whole step brother / foster brother trope, but for some reason this one caught my eye. The story it’s self was definitely good, but I think […]

{release day love!} Wrecked by J.B. Salsbury

{release day love!} Wrecked by J.B. Salsbury

Loved, loved, loved this story of two broken souls that found peace when they were together. Aden had massive guilt and nightmares from his time in the army. Sawyer had OCD and social issues. However, as soon as these two met, their worlds became calm, even though the fireworks were off the charts. Nothing could be that simple though, and they didn’t get their HEA without a lot of heartache, and you all know that […]

{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 […]

{review} Thursday Afternoon by Beth Rinyu

{review} Thursday Afternoon by Beth Rinyu

Loved the title of this book when I saw it. However, the whole thing was so unbelievable to me and actually quite a light and fluffy story. I think it’s because Bree kept glossing over what she did for work. Realistically it would have translated into her life more, yet she treated it as just a crappy job. I then didn’t believe the whole Simon thing either. If they had met under different circumstances and he didn’t […]

{ARC REVIEW} This is How it Happened by Paula Stokes

{ARC REVIEW} This is How it Happened by Paula Stok..

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 4-4.5 stars! The messages revealed throughout the course of this book are one-hundred-percent the driving force of this novel, but I can’t deny that I loved the characters, the setting, and the family dynamics that became just as integral. Ms. Stokes continues to impress me with her range as a writer and has definitely cemented herself among my auto-read-author pile. I think everyone needs to read this book! ♥ Review: I believe Ms. Stokes […]

{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 […]

{ARC Review} Sugar and Gold (Dreamcatcher #2) by E..

*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 […]

{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 […]
