[Book Review] Man Hands by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Synopsis  

He puts the “screw” in screwball comedy…

BRYNN

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass.

Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer.

Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don’t expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life.

I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them.

But I will find her.

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for honest review.

Brynn is recently divorced and trying to get back in the saddle which is why she ends up a party she doesn’t really want to be attending. It’s at this party that she bumps into her ex-husband with a younger thinner model on his arm. This pushes Brynn to do something totally drastic and out of character – throw herself (literally) at the first man that she sees and this happens to be Tom.

This was a pretty short book and but boy did it have a lot of story! It felt like a full-length novel. I really enjoyed the story. It was so funny and heartfelt. Brynn’ quirkiness and humor really gave this story a good punch of comedy. Tom is a semi-famous TV personality who is on a break from filming his home renovation show, I really liked how down to earth and easy going he was. The chemistry between these two is sizzling, to say the least.

This book is told in the first person from both the perspectives of Brynn and Tom.

If you looking for a short light-hearted romantic read then look no further.

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for honest review.

Emma Jane runs out on her wedding day, thinking that her husband to be, doesn’t really love her. Emma leaves town and spends the next few years working at an advertising firm and trying to forget about the man she left at the altar, which has been going well until he walks back into her life and takes over running the company she is working at.

I really enjoyed this story it was engaging and entertaining. The story is told in the first person from the dual perspectives of Knox and Emma Jane.

I liked both the main characters. I thought each of their experiences was intriguing. I felt the hurt and confusion from Knox, who I had trouble picturing as someone who would walk out on someone he loves, his character just seemed to genuine to do something like that.

I also had empathy for Emma Jane. It was obvious that she truly thought Knox had done wrong by her.

Overall this was a good read, it captured my attention and kept me hanging on to the very end.

Saving it by Monica Murphy

Synopsis  

Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for honest review.

Eden and Josh are best friends, Josh is still a virgin and decides that he needs to lose this by the end of senior year. He asks Eden to help him find a girl to do the deed with. But as the search goes on, they both start to question if the person they are looking for is closer than they think.

This story is written in the first person from both perspectives of Josh & Eden

Books like this one are the reason I love YA so much, the story was a great blend of romance, angst and the realization that what you think you want is always what you really want.

I thought the story was entertaining and flowed well. I enjoyed both the main characters. Josh and Eden are your typical teenage best friends, I thought their chemistry was great. The entire time I was reading this book I felt like it could be a really great teen movie, it reminded me of the classics from the 90s.

The Bottom Line:

This was a great story. If you love YA then I would recommend this book to you.

Enough – Danielle Norman

Synopsis  

ARIEL & KAYSON
Some things in life were inevitable; death, taxes, and lying, whoremongering men.
One woman would never be enough for one man.
So I traded in men for a Harley.
Nothing beats that kind of power between my legs.
Then I blinked.
And he was there.

Some things in life were inevitable; death, taxes, and badge bunnies willing to hop into my bed.
The only problem is I’m a one woman kind of man.
In my line of work, I’ve seen it all.
Nothing bothers me until I find a woman’s wrecked body.
When she blinked,
My world changed.

Forever doesn’t come close to giving me enough of her.

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for honest review.

Ariel has had it rough after her mum dies she moves to Orlando to make a fresh start. Things are going well until she is jumped by two thugs. Enter Kayson who her comes her ‘Knight in Shining Armour’

Kayson can’t stop thinking about the beautiful women who he saved, and makes it his mission to make her his.

This story was nothing like I expected to be, I mean that in a good way. As someone who doesn’t really read crimish books I was surprised at how much I ended up liking it. The story writing actually reminded me a little of Till Death by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This book is a great mix of romance, crime and smut.

The sex scenes in the story scorching! Ariel and Kayson have chemistry galore!

I really liked Kayson, he is from a fairly big Greek family, which was a refreshing change from the usual male leads that I have read recently. I thought it was really sweet that his made focus was to keep Ariel safe.

Ariel is a wannabe biker chick, I liked how feisty and independent she is and her group of biker girlfriends were pure joy to read.

The Bottom Line:

If you like your romance with a touch of crime/suspense then its really worth giving this book a go.

That Man Next Door by Nadia Lee

Synopsis  

I’m a twenty-two year-old virgin who’s had five one-night stands. How’s that possible? Easy. I’ve never gone all the way. I just chicken out and bail. Thank God, I’ve always selected men I’ll never run across again…

…until that sexy-as-sin Matt from last weekend moves in next door…

…then shows up as a new in-house counsel at Sweet Darlings Inc. where I work.

Oh…crap.

But it was dark in the hotel room. If I put on a boring office outfit and Clark Kent glasses, he won’t recognize me…

Right?

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book by Nadia Lee so I wasn’t sure what to expect but this book turned out to be a great little read.

Jan has had 5 one night stand and is still a virgin, how? because she runs out on the guy before going through with it and thankfully never sees them again. That’s until Matt who is the latest guy she bails on, he moves in next door and then shows up as the new guy where she works!

The book is told in the first person from almost entirely Jan’s perspective. The last chapter is from Matt’s and its so swoon worthy!

The story really sucked me in, I started this last night and finished this afternoon because I enjoyed reading it so much. The pace of the relationship was a little faster than I would normally like, but there was no insta love, just lots and lots of lust and steaminess.

I found myself relating Jan quite a lot because she is very overly critical of herself and I’m largely the same way. I found her very enduring and easy to connect too. Matt was lovely, perfect guy next door material.

That man next door1

The Bottom Line:

This is a feel-good romantic story – a perfect light read. I would recommend.

Bountiful (True North #4) – Sarina Bowen

Synopsis  

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.

Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on.

Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life.

Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.

Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.

Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I usually avoid books with the accidental pregnancy/pregnancy storylines because in general, I’m not really interested in pregnancy and kids, but as this, by Sarina Bowen, I made an exception.

Dave meets Zara in a bar during his summer vacation. They have a brief and intense liaison. Dave goes back home and Zara discovers she is pregnant. Zara tries to track Dave down but to no avail and concludes that she will never see him again and concentrates on running her business and bring her daughter up.. Fast forward 2 years and Dave is back in town and hasn’t forgotten Zara, after walking into Zara’s coffee shop the first thing she tells him is that they have a daughter together.

I really enjoyed this story, I was really rooting for Dave the whole time and hoped that he would step up and be a father. I liked Zara’s fire, she was strong and independent and gave Dave a way out, which was pretty brave when all she wanted was him to be with her and Nicole.

The journey that characters went on was intense. I felt the love they had for one another to true and I liked that there was no insta love or that they felt the need to be together just because they had a kid together. They just genuinely loved each other and in doing so had learned how to make life work for them.

This story is told in the first person from both the perspectives of Zara and Dave. I should also point out that I haven’t read the 3 books before this one but it didn’t feel like that I would have needed to.

The Bottom Line:

I really liked this one, even though the main theme isn’t something I would normally read. I would definitely recommend it.

Temporary by Sarina Bowen & Sarah Mayberry 

Synopsis  

 The most beautiful man I’ve ever seen is the one who can ruin everything…

The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker, I know he’ll be trouble. With his smug grin, hot Aussie accent and thousand dollar shoes, he’s just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants.

And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle’s estate.

I can’t afford either one. I’m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system. He may have money and charm on his side, but I have something even more powerful — pure desperation. This temp job at his mother’s company can become a full time job for me. It has to.

But when Callan’s eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations. His piercing gaze finds the fun, optimistic girl I used to be and not the tired person I’ve become.

And it works–if only for a moment. Our night together was a mistake. I can’t afford to get sucked into his high-powered family’s treachery. But the closer I get to Callan, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can’t forget this is temporary. He’s temporary. I have too much to lose.

Too bad my foolish heart didn’t get the memo…

Genre:  Romance

Format: eArc – I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


I have 4 words for you: Pre-order this book now!

I pretty much devoured this book in a day it’s that good.  The story sucked me in from the first page. Grace’s job is to take inventory and catalogue her boss’s recently deceased brother (Jack) estate and belongings, sounds simple enough but this is all thrown in to disarray when she arrives at Jack’s apartment and finds Callan Walker there. Callan is Jack’s nephew and he is determined to find a way to take back control from his mother and honour his Uncles final wishes.

This book is told from the duel perspectives of Grace and Callan so straight away you get a greater understanding of where they are both coming from, which I think is one of the reasons that made this story so great. Being able to understand what was motivating Callan’s behaviour is what made him so likable, that and his smoking hot accent! I liked that Grace didn’t just outwardly fall for his charms, she had a job and she was determined to get it done. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and the sexual tension almost bounces off the pages!

Callan’s mother is the ultimate bitch in this book, ruthless and power hungry from the get go and even though we don’t get a physical appearance from her until late in the book, her presence is prominently felt through email and phone conversations.

Overall this was a brilliant read, I’ve not read anything else by these authors yet, but I will be in the future.

The Bottom Line:

I feel like I could rave about this book all day long, it’s one of the best romance books I’ve read all year and I urge you to add it to your reading list.

Sarah Mayberry

19909Sarah Mayberry was born in Melbourne, Australia, and is the middle of three children. From the time that she first “stole” paper from kindergarten and stapled it together to make “books,” Sarah has always wanted to be a writer. In line with this ambition, on graduation from high school, she completed a bachelor of arts degree majoring in professional writing, then sat down to write a book. When inspiration didn’t strike, she began to wonder if, perhaps, she needed to live some life first before writing about it.

This still left the burning question of how to pay the rent. She found her way into trade journalism, working off the principle that it was better to write anything for a living than nothing at all. Her time there lead to the opportunity to launch a new decorator magazine for one of Australia’s major retailers, an invaluable and grueling experience that she found very rewarding.

But the opportunity to write fiction for a living soon lured Sarah away. She took up a post as storyliner on Australia’s longest running soap, Neighbours. Over two years she helped plot more than 240 hours of television, as well as writing freelance scripts. She remembers her time with the show very fondly — especially the dirty jokes and laughter around the story table — and still writes scripts on a freelance basis.

In 2003 she relocated to New Zealand for her partner’s work. There Sarah served as storyliner and story editor on the country’s top-rating drama, Shortland Street, before quitting to pursue writing full time.

Sarah picked up a love of romance novels from both her grandmothers, and has submitted manuscripts to Harlequin many times over the years. She credits the invaluable story structuring experience she learned on Neighbours as the key to her eventual success — along with the patience of her fantastic editor, Wanda.

Sarah is revoltingly happy with her partner of twelve years, Chris, who is a talented scriptwriter. Not only does he offer fantastic advice and solutions to writing problems, but he’s also handsome, funny and sexy. When she’s not gushing over him, she loves to read romance and fantasy novels, go to the movies, sew and cook for her friends. She has also become a recent convert to Pilates, which she knows she should do more often.

Hartley doesn’t want him. She says he needs to grow up.

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

To say I was excited to receive this book is an understatement. So before I get into the review I want to say thank you to team Erin Watt for sending providing me with this ARC.

This is the fourth book of The Royals Series and is told from Easton’s perspective. I have to say that I didn’t particularly have any strong feelings about Easton when I read the first 3 books, sure I thought he was an ok supporting character but apart from that I didn’t really think that much of him, but in this book, he definitely grew on me.

I really loved Hartley, I love how she took no shit from Easton and wasn’t won over by his Royal charm, ⬅️ See what I did there?  Aside from her being ballsy I also enjoyed finding out about her. During the reading of this book I thought it was a shame that we didn’t get Hartley’s perspective on things but looking back I think it was actually a good thing because it gave the story a lot more tension because we didn’t know her thoughts.

Of course, all the old characters are sprinkled throughout, I really liked that we go to see snippets of how Ella and Reed were doing and we even got a little update on Steve’s trial!

And that ending!! Holy crap! I was not expecting that! Talk about a freaking cliff hanger!! I can’t wait for Cracked Kingdom to come out….. it’s going to be a bloody long winter!

The Bottom Line:

If you have read the first 3 books in the series then this is a must read. This is my new favorite read of the summer. I just loved it! Well done Erin Watt another brilliant read. Now I must nurse my book hangover!!

PS: Get Ready to be Ruined!

My Rating: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

So I was really intrigued when I read the synopsis of this book I thought it looked like it would be a good read, however, I did end up being disappointed. This was largely due to Janey. Her emotional intelligence was for the most part non-existent. It wasn’t until the very end that she acknowledged that her parents had feelings and needs which I thought for someone who is 17 was a bit stunted.

Spoilers coming up!

As You Wish – Chelsea Sedoti

Blurb

As You Wish

What if you could ask for anything- and get it? 

In the sandy Mojave Desert, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. But Eldon wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, because in Madison, everyone gets one wish—and that wish always comes true.

Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but Eldon has seen how wishes have broken the people around him. And with the lives of his family and friends in chaos, he’s left with more questions than answers. Can he make their lives better? How can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? And what hope is there for any of them if happiness isn’t an achievable dream? Doubts build, leading Eldon to a more outlandish and scary thought: maybe you can’t wish for happiness…maybe, just maybe, you have to make it for yourself.

Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Story/ Characters

This story took me by surprise, there is a lot more to it than wishing. This is a story about growing up. It was a little slow going in the beginning and I wasn’t certain where the story was going to go, but then halfway through it got good.

This story is told in the first person, entirely from Eldon’s perspective. The writing was really clear and easy to follow. The descriptions of the scenery and what it was like living in a desert town were really well done. It was really easy to build a picture in my mind about Eldon’s surroundings.

I really liked Eldon’s character, his conflicting feelings about deciding on his wish was an interesting read, but what made him human for me was his grief. This I felt was the underlying theme of this story and is what motivates him throughout the story.

I really enjoyed the wishing stories that were scattered throughout, these were little stories of what other people in the town wished for which I thought was fascinating.

The only negative I can think of is that I did work out what Eldon’s wish was going to be before he did but this didn’t really hinder my enjoyment.

Favorite Quote:

“Anyone who says grief fades over time is a fucking liar. It never goes away. It just gets better at hiding. You never know when it’s going to spring out of the shadows and sucker punch you in the gut”

Conclusion:

This was an entertaining read, I really enjoyed it. It was a bit different to what I’ve been reading recently and would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys YA.

My Rating: 3/5 🌟 🌟 🌟purpleaddit1lp
