{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} 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 […]

{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 […]

{release day blitz} Fractured Love by Ella James

💔💔💔 💔💔💔 I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash. Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be […]

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

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 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 […]

{ARC REVIEW} Hello, Sunshine by Leila Howland

♥ Quick Thoughts and Rating: 3.75 rounding up to 4 full stars! Cute, entertaining, and brimming with vivacious characters, Hello, Sunshine is a breath of fresh air and a really quick read. Looking for a summer novel to make you smile? Well, look no further. Scoop this one up and fall head-over-Hollywood-heels (hills?
