Being a fan of Jennifer Chance’s adult contemporary Rule Breakers series, I was beyond excited to be able to feature her brand new New Adult series Gowns & Crowns. I’ve been sitting on this post for weeks, excitedly waiting to share it with everyone because it’s such a timely subject both with her new book, Courted, and the direction the New Adult “genre” has gone in last year or so.
Well, my vocabulary has been expanded. Of course I knew the “boot” was the trunk of the car. “Petrol” is gasoline. I’m still not sure what the “forecourt” is though. Oh, how I love reading books written by British authors!
I have been WAITING for Ambrose’s book to come out ever since I met him in the first book of the Masters Unleashed series, Finding Master Right. If ever a master deserved a HEA, it’s this guy.
This book is straight up young adult romance with the typical side of light teenage angst. I devoured this in one day; it’s a quick, easy read! And I really believe this book is a great addition to any teen library collection for its positive messages.
I did not, did not, DID NOT like Dallas Lark in Leaving Amarillo, the first book in Caisey Quinn’s Neon Dreams series. The guy was a bossy, self absorbed, drill sergeant of a big brother to Dixie, his younger sister. I dreaded picking up this book number two for so many reasons but none of them held any whiskey by the time I finished this in yet again record time. As usual, it takes the woman to make the man…
So, I’ve let yet another book sit, stew, and not get reviewed properly. Story of my life lately, huh? I remembered the story, I looked over my notes, but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t abundantly love Once Pure. I needed to investigate this! So I re-read the book. Here comes the conundrum: what review do I write?
Ever feel like you’re the last to know? That’s seems to be me lately. I don’t know if it is because of the blogging break I took a while back or it’s because I just don’t have the right connections. Either way, I keep hearing about these awesome series and authors and then I’m starting them waaaay after everyone has moved onto book three or four. Case in point…
I want to take this moment to thank two people. I thank Grace at Rebel Mommy Book Blog for “making” me hunt this book down. And I thank Renee Carlino for NOT making this huge story into two books like so many authors tend to want to do today. […]
Escaping Reality, book one in the Secret Life of Amy Bensen series, was originally written back in 2013. I actually remember it coming out and a bunch of my friends liking it. I noticed that it was being re-released this past summer to coincide with Ms. Jones adding to the series in the fall. So the greedy little reader that I am, I snapped it up for review so I can see for myself what all the hype is about Ms. Jones’ writing.
I fell in love with the “hero” of this story in the first Mechanics of Love book. I remember our moment like it was yesterday… Brent was sitting at his desk, doing paperwork with reading glasses perched on his nose ∗sigh∗. Can you imagine a hot mechanic doing that? Well, Megan Erickson did and I love her for it!
