He's not perfect, but he's all I want...

I’m your average girl at your average high school, trying to figure out my place in life. After catching my now ex-boyfriend messing around with my now ex-best friend, I’ve made some big changes.

Review: Four Letter Word by J. Daniels

Synopsis: Fate. Hate. Love. Lies.

Which four letter word will change their lives forever?

Sydney Paige was never so mortified to hear the words "wrong number" in her life. She meant to tell off the guy who broke her best friend's heart but unleashed her anger on a perfect stranger instead. And now her world is turned upside down by the captivating man who wants to keep her on the line.

Brian Savage is living a life he's quickly come to hate-until Sydney's wild rant has him hooked and hungry for more. Soon the sexy woman on the phone becomes the lover in his bed. But Brian has secrets, and the closer he lets Syd get, the harder it is to shield her from the devastating mistakes of his past . . .

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

Review: This book was freaking incredible!!! I loved every single book that J. Daniels has written and this one by far is my favourite. Im sitting here still reeling from all the feels this book has given me. Im seriously in the worst book hangover ever and I never want it to end. I just want to live in Dogwood Beach for life! I seriously cannot wait to read the rest of this series because I'm literally obsessed with every single character in this book. Tori and Syd's friendship reminded me of me and my best friend and I couldn't help but smile at their crazy antics. Jamie was a charmer and I hope that Tori will give him a chance because I feel like they are perfect for each other. I also think that Kali and Cole and Shay and Stitch should hook up so we shall see what happens in the upcoming books.Lets not forget about my favourite couple of all time.

Wild and Trouble captivated me right from the start. I was devouring this book so quickly that I literally had to force myself to put it down just so I could make the book last. Needless to say the temptation got the best of me and I still ended up finishing this book in one sitting. Trouble has now officially become my number one book boyfriend. Every single one of you need to run out and grab a copy immediately. I can guarantee you that you won't regret it. There's a reason this book has hit #1 and thats because it perfection!

Review: Furious Rush by S.C Stephens

SynopsisToo fast, too furious-and way too hot to handle . . .

Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father's talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team's newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie's skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she's racing against Hayden.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense--and strictly forbidden--attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind...

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Review:I want to start off this review by saying that Furious Rush was the first book I have read by this author. I was constantly hearing nothing but praise for S.C Stephens and her Thoughtless series, that I was extremely excited to read this one. 

With that being said I was really disappointed after finishing this story. I had high expectations going in and I felt like they were not being met by this #1 Bestselling author. It took me a while to get into this story because I found it to be overly detailed and repetitive at times and it left me extremely bored. I found myself constantly having to put this book down and having to talk myself into not give up on it and Im glad that I didn't. Towards the last 40 % of this book it started to pick up and I found myself enjoying it. I was very intrigued with the racing aspect of this story and I have to admit that I loved the illegal racing parts more than the legal ones. I loved Hayden and Kenzie!!! Their chemistry was off the charts!! It almost felt like a modern day Romeo and Juliet and I adored everything about them. 

In my opinion this story had a lot of potential, but S.C Stephens failed to deliver a 5 star read. I'm even contemplating on removing the Thoughtless series off of my TBR but everyone deserves a second chance right? If I do decide to give this author another chance I will do so without having any expectations going in.

Review: Wait by A.L Jackson

Synopsis: She is his strength and he is her weakness. And this time he won’t let her go.

Edie Evans is gorgeous.
She’s also the definition of off-limits.
But that didn’t stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night.
But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too.
The night I sent her running, I thought I’d never see her again.
Until I saw her standing like a vision in the crowd.

Austin Stone is dangerous.
He broke my heart and I refused to give him the chance to do it again.
It’s been years since I’ve seen him, and now I can’t do anything but stare at the gorgeous, tattooed man playing onstage. I should run. I know I should. But like a fool, I run straight back to him.
Our desire is overpowering.
Our need unrelenting.

She is my hope.
He is my weakness.
We should have known a passion this intense would burn us right into the ground.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

Review: I knew right from the start that Austin's story would be my absolute favorite. The broken boy stole my heart in A Stone In The Sea and I was anxiously waiting for his story to be told. As per usual, A.L Jackson did not disappoint. Her books have always captivated me in a way that is hard to describe. Its an overwhelming feeling of awe, that just by reading her stories, you feel truly blessed to be given such a gift. She has a way with words that is insanely beautiful and magical! She is the Queen of the feels and let me tell you that I still get goosebumps when I think about some of the scenes from this story. Those of you who have read one of her books would agree with me when I say that A.L Jackson was born to write!! I wish I could rate this book 10 stars out of 5 cause thats how amazing it was. The only time I ever find myself highlighting or tagging a book like a madwoman is when I'm reading one of her stories. Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if I found out that others have tattooed her words on their skin cause I have contemplated it a time or two. Who knows, it might happen someday but until then I'll just continue to admire her magnificent talent in print.

Review: We Know It Was You by Maggie Thrash

Synopsis: Twin Peaks meets Pretty Little Liars in acclaimed author Maggie Thrash’s new Strange Truth series.

It’s better to know the truth. At least sometimes.

Halfway through Friday night’s football game, beautiful cheerleader Brittany Montague—dressed as the giant Winship Wildcat mascot—hurls herself off a bridge into Atlanta’s surging Chattahoochee River.

Just like that, she’s gone.

Eight days later, Benny Flax and Virginia Leeds will be the only ones who know why.

Release Date: October 4 2016

Rating: 4 out 5 stars.

Review:  I loved this book so freaking much! 
They sold me at Twin Peaks meets PPL when I read the synopsis of this book. I find that there's a little bit of a Veronica Mars feel to it as well. So if you're a lover of all three, then this book is definitely for you.

I was not prepared to be taken for a ride when I picked up this book but WOW.... what a crazy ride it was. The amount of plot twists contained in this story had me all over the place. Just when I thought I had things figured out, I was hit with yet another twist, leaving me lost all over again. This story is told by multiple POV's and I loved how they flowed together seamlessly. The author never had to tell you who's POV you were reading at the moment because it was so well written that is was impossible to be confused. I've never read anything like this storyline before. I loved all the character's in We Know It Was You, especially the obsessive Benny Flax. Gerard was a goofball that made me chuckle every time he was in a scene and other character's who also stood out to me was Winn, Zaire and Virginia.

I literally devoured this book and have now added Maggie Thrash to my "Favorite Author's List". Can't wait to see what she comes up with next and I know, without a shadow of a doubt that I will find myself automatically one-clicking it.

Review: Kiss Cam by Kiara London

Ebook, 272 pages.
Release Date: October 18 2016 by Swoon Reads

In Kiss Cam, teen author Kiara London asks, what's a little harmless kissing between friends?

Juniper, Jasper, and Lenny have been friends forever and co-own a vlog channel called WereVloggingHere. Their fans are huge "shippers" who believe that Juniper and Jasper are perfect for each other, and, despite warnings from friends and family, a simple Truth-or-Dare inspired kiss soon spirals out of control into a whole new world of making out and surprise kisses.

Juniper and Jasper's relationship begins to shift. But as fan requests for different "Kiss Cam" segments keep pouring in, Juniper puts her worries aside and convinces herself that it doesn't mean anything. After all, it's just kissing… right?

Rating:  3 out of 5 Stars.

I had a tough time rating this book because I felt like it was too fluffy for my taste and yet somehow I really enjoyed it. The plot is very straight forward, which made it a quick read. However, I felt like it could have used a bit of spice. I kept waiting for a serious plot twist to hit me but it never happened. 

I really enjoyed how realistic the storyline was. I've always been a big fan of watching Vlogs and felt like I was in the story along with these lovable characters. Makes me feel like I'm in high school all over again. **Sigh**

If you're a big fan of overly sweet stories, with characters you can't help but love, then this book is definitely for you.
