Fame: a love story

*Life got in the way - that’s why my reading dates are so far apart.*

This book!!! I love a good rockstar romance and oh goodness does this give you that and so much more! I’ve never read from this author but I loved the blurb so much I couldn’t help but want to read it!

I have to say that Mark and Jenna are some hot messes!! I loved some of the supporting characters Jamie, Lily and Max... I grew quite attached and cried when they hurt. Cried when they were happy...a lot of crying for me. Jenna made me so mad at times and I couldn’t help but just ache for her. At the beginning I didn’t understand... but just keep reading... so much happens!!!!! My heart broke, healed, broke again, shattered and even though I didn’t want to heal I knew it could be possible. I LOVED this story!

These people showed me something that I am going to take away from such tragic events in this book. Don’t waste precious time and some things happen for a reason. I whole heartedly believe that this book was brought to me to help me heal and I am honored I got to read it. You need Mark and Jenna in your life because even though their life is going chaotic and uncertain at times, they are surely to give you perspective on your own life! Truly a great book!! I really REALLY hope to see other characters from this book!! 😍😘💜

You guys know how much I love finding new authors and this one was recommended by a very close friend which made it even sweeter! I couldn’t put this book down!!! (Except for the day I had a horrible headache and couldn’t function.) This book just had my attention from so many different angles!!

I loved her name, Octavia, it sounds (in my head) so beautifully! Her character made her sound like a “Corporate Barbie” as Zed describes but boy does she knock him on his butt! The freaking banter between these two not only turned them on but I’m sure will turn everyone on with the sexual tension! To be honest, I was quite surprised how this whole story turned out because things escalated quickly at the beginning. I wasn’t sure where she would take the story from that and still have a heck of an ending. Well, she proved me the freak wrong because not only did she still have my attention after things escalated but the suspense of it all had me so freaking curious I needed to know.

Now it’s a FULL DAY of reading!! I started again today around 23% and finished just a little bit ago and I think that was one of the best epilogue I’ve read in a very long time!!! I am so very curious about so many characters now though and I can’t wait to see what’s in the future!! This was a heck of a book to start me on and I’m hooked! Sexual tension, tattoos, fun banter, emotional issues and so much sex.... this book was not only hot but I cried, laughed and got nervous as crap! I’m honored I got to read this book!!

Wallflower

My second read from this author but this one was a full book to read and as much as I loved the story I think it was too long with too many repetitive words and phrases.

Tessa seems a bit naive at the beginning and nothing like the woman she becomes at the end. I enjoyed how the story went but I also had hopes for a different ending. I feel like some of her story was a bit repetitive and could’ve been great even with it shortened a little. Tessa sounds like this woman who has been in the world but honestly trusted too easily. My stomach is wrecked from the nausea I had throughout this book with worry. I had horrible horrible thoughts of how this could go and I never saw this ending happening.

James seemed like my pick for Tessa but I could also see the appeal of Emilio and his sexiness. It seemed like something was gonna happen from beginning and again, I was on edge most of this book!! Emilio was too good to be true and James seemed too eager to discount him. I think I sat rocking myself for comfort throughout the second half of this book! It was so hot and incredible arousing but also scared me something very bad was coming.

I really enjoyed a lot of this book, most of this book actually. My only thing is that is you were to re-edit this book to really go back over words you repeated, they aren’t needed, and other words can be use to express what you want. I understand how you wanted us to feel her orgasm hitting her hard but using the same word over and over is something you should stay away from and try using more descriptive words. At times you did that but then would go back to the repetitive and that just doesn’t make me want to read it or helps me feel the reaction you want. Awesome job though and I wish you best of luck in the future.

Conquest

Oh goodness!! How you sometimes forget the love of a genre you have when you don’t read it for a long time. This is a brand new author to me and I was so lucky enough to get an advanced copy! Ember you have opened my heart back up to paranormal and I couldn’t be more ecstatic!!!

The beginning hit me pretty crazily and I was in love and shock from then on, not putting my phone down when I should’ve. Connell is a pretty tempting man from the beginning and watching him become aware of what he didn’t know about made everything seem so intense. Not only did his need to show his alpha but his vulnerability side showed some and made me swoon all over again. I have never really cared about some of the paranormal in this book but putting them all together just made this story so much more than I thought it would be!

Breena is a character I was unsure of because I haven’t actually read about her kind and she had me questioning myself... but in the end she is THE rockstar! Seeing her work and using her powers made me tingle just thinking about how it affected them.

I LOVE how you see so many characters and it didn’t feel overwhelming! Normally with something like this I would’ve felt it was too much and too many moving parts to keep track of but that wasn’t the case. You had moving parts but damn were they great parts! I went to fucking SHOCKED AS HELL to swooning then to laughing my butt off and so many different emotions you couldn’t pass up. Some parts are way more shocking than I thought would be but my twisted mind loved every moment!! Heck YES I need the next!!! Heck of a book!!

The Irish Lottery

Falling for a new to me authors writing is the best thing EVER! This was my first read from this author and I will be going in search of more from her! I love a good friends to lovers book but this was so much more!

Aubrey is this American who is living in Ireland and engaged to someone who I very very much dislike. Their relationship seemed content, nothing exciting or even mouthwatering sexy and it made me sad for her. Her best friend on the other hand seemed like he was not only drop dead gorgeous but the best friend you could ask anything of and he would give it without question. The banter with him and even his brothers is something you try throughout your life to find and some never find it. But with love also comes pain and it broke my heart to see so much pain in Noah’s eyes. Pain for more than just unrequited love and I just had to know what was going to happen.

I read and read and kept reading... When I got to a certain point in the book I thought the book was over and was devastated but a quick check of my progress assured me that more was to come. In this book you get romance, suspense of an unknown, pain from something that could be devastating, laughter and I was even in awe at moments. I whole heartedly believe everyone in our community of readers should read this, no way should we be ashamed of anything. Such a great book and an incredible message! #YestoHer

Troublesome Roommate

I love a good roommate book, especially with so much suspense from the unknown of Kevin’s issues. I had this awesome author contact me and I couldn’t wait to read this book!

Audrey seemed so much like me it felt weird at times to read. So many insecurities she had I knew I had from before getting married. The need to be loved after being hurt so many times is overwhelming. Plus the amount of debt you have looming over your head doesn’t help the self esteem when you have to reuse clothes over and over. I felt a huge connection to Audrey up until an awful thing happened and her heart got broken... she pissed me off something fierce. I wanted to strangle her and slap her until she saw reason because holy fuck was that childish!! 🤬 Zane (her best friend) seemed to have struggles of his own and I couldn’t help but be curious to find out if we would know more!

Kevin is a bit of the unknown and I was quite scared the build up wouldn’t be what I imagined his secrets being would... while they weren’t the spewing your drink all over the person sitting in front of you, they were pretty epic and upsetting. I worried about so many things with this man because he seemed so secretive and I was scared he would do something epically horrible.

I loved the writing style and even just reading from Audrey’s point of view, which I usually don’t, but it all came together very well. I love most of everything about this book and couldn’t put it down!! Romance, hot sex, fun gay roommate and incredibly hot boss what more could you need! 😍

KIT

5 hearts_purple.png

Aaahhhh!!! This is my first read from this author and she has such a story to tell! I love a good series with potential for more to come, especially with brothers, but I was not expecting that ending!!!

Eve seemed like a very take no bullshit type of girl and while I understood the push and pull of the relationship they had, I was a little annoyed. I can understand she’s been through so much and she has this wall up but I was ready to punch Kit each and every time.

Kit isn’t the type to settle down but he seemed to be interested. Although every time things got to a good part in their life he somehow blew it up. Making stupid decisions, saying the wrong thing or just plain being a dumb guy.

While I wasn’t sure I liked the back and forth it made total sense. That is exactly how most relationships go. The woman is waiting for the shoe to drop and usually when it does they are devastated but THAT ENDING!! Woman you better have the next book ready! 🤣 I loved most of this book and while I enjoyed reading it, you had some extra details that I don’t think were needed. You don’t need to explain each and every thing they do but I get it. Congrats and I’m ready for the next! 😍

Take Me

An emotional rollercoaster with this read. My first read from this author and I’m mesmerized by some of the aspects of this story, others I cringed. I couldn’t put it down though. I had other arcs I needed to get to but I just kept reading, needing to know how Caine’s story ended.

I did say Caine, while I understand most of the story was about Callie I couldn’t stand her for most of the time. She made some pretty ridiculous decisions that to me just aren’t believable. I get things happen and everyone has different opinions but she wasted so much time and just pushed everyone away. I wanted to love her and I understand her struggle and heartache but her choices are not ones I liked reading about in this scenario. Caine was a man, a gentleman just about the entire time and I fell hard for him. You could just feel the emotions pouring off him. I also didn’t like some of her other friends.... I was furious with them. And even being so close to finishing I wanted to just stop right then because of how upset I was...

Overall, I still chose to give it 5 stars because with everything considered my passion for the story overwhelmed everything else. Towards the end I did have an issue with timing though, I thought a rehearsal happened the day before the event but the wording made me believe it was several days before the actual event. Little confusing but after I blew it off things started to wrap up. Great job. I just don’t like cheaters or the indecisiveness of Callie. Made me want to throw a book at everyone who walked by me today.

Goodness. It was actually longer than I thought it would be BUT ended how I hoped. This author is super new to me and I couldn’t have been more excited to read this story. ALTHOUGH... my stomach was in knots and I just had this awful gut feeling.

Primrose, just her freaking name is amazing. It just screams innocence. She took me by surprise and made some decisions I didn’t agree with but at the same time understood those decisions. Just starting out in your career that not only puts you at a disadvantage but the innocent look and unknown have things falling apart even before they start.

Grayson is a serial dater and the ultimate player who never thought his heart would get involved, until her. So much hurt in his past put walls up around him to keep everyone out and it almost worked.

This wasn’t a normal read for me since I dislike all the lying and deceit. My gut awful feeling came to life when I hit my wall of emotions with this book. I couldn’t take it and it took so much to just keep reading. I love angst and suspense but this type I don’t like the huge build up. It just made me want to ball up in a huge ball and cry for days. Too much!! But not enough too... what a great read!! Congrats!

I know this was just a Christmas novella but it said so much about Phillip and Jason. The compassion Jason has during this time, the amount of torment he goes through hurts deep. I really felt every ounce of pain, struggle and sadness throughout Jason’s heart and soul. I even felt the love his extended family has for him through the Christmas celebration. I am in complete jealously over the farm house everyone gathers at because I wish my family had the same.

Tracey your words just keep getting deeper and deeper for me. My world view on the world inside your stories just brings something different to my heart. The struggles Jason goes through dealing with the pain and guilt are so powerful but you can still see hope in the future. After each book I feel this overwhelming amount of hope even for myself. No matter what I’m going through in my life someone else is going through something else too and we can only learn from the things we struggle.

I’m diving into the next book because I’m in LOVE, DEEP, soul binding love with these people and I can’t wait to see more of them!

Free to Dream

Oh my goodness. I’m in tears crying so badly at work. What a great way to be introduced to an author!! I can’t wait to keep reading this series and fall in love with each character!

Cassidy is one hell of a woman and beyond inspiring. Honestly, the beginning was a bit slow for me but I could feel something was going to happen that would change that and boy did that ever!! The things this entire family has endured and then to still be a representation of putting families together as event planners, mind blowing. I did laugh a lot at the family and their banter but when the epic shock it I covered my mouth in complete awe at what was happening.

I am beyond excited to see what else this awesome author has in the next couple of books of the series!! I am addicted and I won’t be very productive for the rest of the day. I’m in love with Caleb and I never expected to be in love with Keene but..... he’s surprised the heck out of me!

I think I have said this throughout this series but this is the best freaking series ever!!! I have never seen this author or read from her but my emotions are all over the place!! What a great story she told and had me on edge the whole time but in love with them!!

I loved Logan hardcore!! Like he was the freaking star of it for me and made my heart soar and drop in an instant for a chapter! The emotions he brought up then and later had my crying like a baby! The relationship he has with his mom was the best ever and the pair quickly won my heart. Porter wasn’t fair behind but I knew the build up would crash and I would be a blubbering mess!! Even though you could see how things would end and it was a little predictable (just a small portion!!) I couldn’t help but be gripped by my heart with love for the entire gang!

I don’t think I’ve seen an ending quite like that and it left me crying again! I’m loving this series each book at a time and each new author I discover just adds to the amazing love I have for this series! The writing style of this author, the ability to tell this incredible story from all angles and still have some shock aspects to throw me off amazed me! Way to go and I’m beyond ready for the next!

This duet.... gave me chills from the beginning and didn’t stop until I finished both books!! I waited patiently for book 2 and you will not be disappointed!! I fell hard for this author because she just KNOWS want my soul wants to read! As disturbing as some of this was to read, I wouldn’t have it any other way!! Eva.... you blew my mind and I can’t express how much I’m excited to see what comes next!!

JD is not like any man I have read or if I have, he takes the top book boyfriend material. I couldn’t help but fall in love with this man who only wanted to protect the only things he had left in life. He will soak your panties, piss you off more than you have been, scare the shit out of you and make you fall in love over and over again!! You need Julian in your life!!

So many twists and turns throw you around during this second part of the duet BUT it’s EVERYTHING!! I cried.... a lot.... I swooned, I wanted to throw up everywhere but mostly I had hope that JD could be something more. My other favorite character is Smith and I can’t wait to see him in the future!! 🤞🏽🤞🏽

Congrats Eva!!! I’m a big fan now and I’m so excited for everyone to get swept up in part two of this duet!! You kicked fucking ass in this book!!! 😍💜😍💜
