{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 […]

{ARC Review} Jilted (Love Hurts #2) by Sawyer Benn..

  This is second chance romance that’s both sweet and spicy.  Coop and Eden dated back in high school and her opportunity to become a model and travel the world broke them apart.  Years later, after her fiance cheats on her, Eden finds herself back in her hometown to get away from things…and there she meets up with Coop again.  Even though both of them still hurt from their break up, they’ve both moved on.  […]

*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} Pipe Dreams (Brooklyn Bruisers #3) by..

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the Publisher but that did not influence this review in any way!   This is a story about doing the right thing…but managing the situation extremely badly. Mike Beacon messed up two years ago and broke Lauren Williams’ heart. Time did little to heal the wounds and it certainly didn’t diminish their feelings for each other. Coming together through circumstances beyond their control, they soon […]

{Review} Naughty by Nature by Addison Moore

{Review} Naughty by Nature by Addison Moore

  If there’s one thing I an count on it’s that I will enjoy every book that I read by Addison Moore.  She’s got the unique ability to write fantasy, contemporary, and romance books and make them all feel like that’s the only thing she does.  This book was everything I imagined it would be…sweet, humorous, romantic, and just a touch naughty.  It’s one of those stories that you read more quickly than you expect […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the publisher via Net Galley but that did not in any way influence this review.   The struggle is real.  The heartbreak, the angst, the undeniable attraction, the romance, the uncertainty, the love…they’re all real!  This story grabbed my emotions and held them hostage – I couldn’t be sure from one page to the next whether I’d be smiling or sobbing.  There was heartache and […]

Loved, loved, loved this second chance romance. Katie and Devin were first loves that didn’t work out and left an empty place in both their hearts for years to come. And Katie was left without answers. Both went on with their lives, but it wasn’t until tragedy struck Katie that she fell low enough to do something to shake things up. She sent a letter to Devin. And he wrote back. The very second they […]

{review} Fall Back Skyward (Fall Back #1) by Autum..

I won this book in a contest and was absolutely delighted. People were raving about how amazing and emotional this story was. I knew I had to have it and was thrilled to get a copy as a prize. So I knew from all the reviews I had to hold tough, but the beginning was a little slow. The first 25% or so I found I put the book down a bit even though I was […]

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the Publisher but that did not in any way influence this review!   I could see, smell, taste, and feel Rome all around me as I read this book.  I could feel the cobblestones under my feet and smell the pastries in the air. I could hear the lilt of the Italian language and feel the sunshine on my face.  This was not only a […]

{blog tour} Swear on this Life by Renee Carlino

This book…I loved it. Renee Carlino has done it again given us a total gem. A sweet, heartfelt love story of a lifetime. The plot was so different, so unique and I loved the fresh feel of the story (or should I say stories?).  Ms. Carlino is a go-to author for me and she totally delivered once again. I am normally not a fan of flashbacks, but in this case I couldn’t get enough. I somehow […]
