I am an enthusiast (not to say bluntly – that I have an obsession), that loves to read books. Lots of books. I don’t really have a favourite genre. I read everything that perks my interests and goes currently with my mood. And it does change quite regularly. One day I will reading Young Adult or Paranormal Romance, but next I will switch to Shakespeare or some poetry. I love classics. My dream is to have every single one of them on my book shelf (once I will lottery, so I can fit them in my separate library that will be build for me – girl can dream?). That love made me study English Philology with BA in English/American Literature and Theory of the Literature. But as an enthusiast, I like to go beyond the shelves I was accustomed to after 3 years of studying. Where at Uni the literature ended on 20th century, I like to find new authors with new stories to be told.

Excerpt – Varsity Tiebreaker by Ginger Scott

Tory D’Angelo
I’m not sure if she realizes she’s trembling, but she is, so to stop her from digging any deeper in a place so public and so filled with the fumes of microwave pizza and Coke machines, I reach forward and rest my hand on top of hers. We both freeze immediately, and I’m pretty sure my palm is already sweating. Her gaze lifts to meet mine, but I don’t let go of her hand just yet. I don’t make this touch a big deal, even though it sort of is. That’s not why I did it, and I don’t want to cheapen it. With our eyes locked on one another, I let the air fill with the touch of silence just long enough for a ragged, emotional breath to fall from her lips.

“You have every right to feel the way you do,” I say.

“And how’s that?” she fires back. Her hand shifts under mine, but she doesn’t pull it away.

“You feel like your dad sees a business opportunity where he should see his daughter.”

She swallows and keeps her gaze on mine for a beat before finally leaning back, pulling her hand away and glancing off to her side. With a snort sniffle, she runs the sleeve of my brother’s hoodie across her eyes, erasing the tiny break that she let herself have.

I’m suddenly not hungry. I don’t think I have ever not been hungry, but I couldn’t eat the rest of my burrito now if I were forced at gunpoint. It’s not that I feel sick, but more that I feel…envious. I was fooling myself thinking that Abby was a passing crush I could dismiss easily. Two months of riding shotgun with her through all things June and Lucas was just long enough for me to get hooked on having her around. But while it’s my advice she’s listening to right now, it’s my brother’s fucking sweatshirt she’s dabbing her tears with.

“So, see you at the game?” I know my move to leave is abrupt, especially after she just bared part of her soul. If I stay, though, I’m going to say things I don’t mean just out of sheer self-preservation. This is precisely why I don’t do relationships, I just do flirting and hookups. Feelings…well, they fucking feel.

“What, did you change your mind and suddenly decide that nine-eighty bare-minimum wasn’t good enough?” Her nose wrinkles after her insult, but I think I get where it’s coming from. She just hit me with a major share, and now I’m bailing. Better to lash out. Her and I aren’t so different.

“Something like that,” I say, holding up my lunch trash as a wave goodbye.

Abby’s face shifts slightly, her wrinkled mouth and dimmed eyes morphing from the snarky expression that accompanies her tease to the look of a girl who just lost her brand new balloon to the sky.

“That hoodie…” I say as I walk backward, pointing toward the center of her chest. “Looks good on you.” I leave things there with a tight-lipped smile and a nod, a truce of sorts, not that Abby even knew we were in a battle. Hell, we weren’t. I’m the only one in a conflict, and it’s with my own damn self.

I manage to turn my back to her and toss my trash out without pausing to get one more little jab in to fully take things back to our version of normal. I think for now, I’d like to leave things nice. I wasn’t counting on her wanting to leave things that way, too, though.

“I’ll be sure to cheer for you, even if I’m wearing Hayden’s number,” she shouts.

I spin on my feet and give her a thumbs up, but keep moving away from her because if I turn around, I’ll keep trying to win her over. And she’s not mine to be won.

Varsity Tiebreaker
Book 2 in The Varsity Series by Ginger Scott

Abby Cortez is a girl with goals, on the verge of turning eighteen and on the brink of stardom. Falling in love isn’t just something she doesn’t have time for, it’s something she doesn’t really believe in. Her rule? Date but never, ever fall.

Tory “Salvatore” D’Angelo loves falling in love…just not for real. The star basketball player at Allensville Public High gives his heart away one girl at a time then takes it back when he’s ready to move on. No serious feelings, no serious pain.

They’re both good plans until Abby’s jaded heart gets all tangled up with Tory’s hopeless one. A friendly rivalry grows into friendship, and long talks start to blur the lines.
Just one problem—Abby’s current boyfriend is Tory’s twin brother, Hayden.

This is book 2 in The Varsity Series by Ginger Scott. You can start this series of stand-alone mature YA sports romances now with Varsity Heartbreaker. Book 3, Varsity Rulebreaker, releases in October.

Esme and Kayla once were campers at Camp Pine Lake. Now they’re back as counselors-in-training. Esme loves the little girls in her cabin and thinks it’s funny how scared they are of everything—the woods, the bugs, the boys . . . even swimming in the lake. It reminds her of how she and Kayla used to be, once. Before . . .

ARC Review: If We Were Young by Anna Bloom

Beautifully written story with humour, second chances and characters that you fall in love with.

Ronnie. God I feel for her. Everyone has anxiety of some sorts. But to have a severe anxiety and also have a teenager at home. It’s hard and I wouldn’t wish it anyone. But I liked the most is that the problems were real. Not over the top. Simply real and so relatable.

Ronnie’s daughter made me laugh so many times. It was a nice break in her mother’s hard life.

And there is of course a man. Matthew. Gah I like him and I want to keep him. But it was not easy for him and Ronnie. Not after 15 years when they are practically forced to work together.

This books is a must read for 2020.

Thank you for letting me be part of the review team.

ARC received in exchange of an honest review.

Review: The Girl Who Cried Werewolf by Heather Hildenbrand and Bam Shepherd

Blurb~

Book Boyfriends are real. Pass it on.
Professional book blogger Romy Cartelli may have cried werewolf once or twice. Hell, she’s even cried vampire, warlock, and dragon their fair share of times—because, as every dedicated reader knows, one book boyfriend is never enough.
And her followers love it…until they don’t.
Sure, Romy is being stalked by a sexy werewolf, but she’s got bigger issues to deal with. Like the fact that he might be a murderer. Or worse yet, that she got drunk and told all of her followers that werewolves actually exist. Then she fails to prove it.
Cue the trolling and the haters.
Now Romy’s out to prove she’s not crazy and win back her followers. But as she sets out to clear her name, she’ll discover there are bigger dangers awaiting her than internet infamy.

REVIEW

Whoaaaah! What a debut book! What a beginning to an amazing series!
Both ladies did an amazing job and justice to all the characters. All of the characters are well developed and you are getting attached to them straight away. Even the ones that are not the main ones!
Amazing amazing amazing! I can’t get enough of it!
It’s a new take on werewolves and awesome mix of any BBF girl that dreams about something like that happening EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
This book is like a dream come true for us craving our own book boyfriend.
Read it. Read it now. It’s so worth it.

Waking Up In Vegas is LIVE!!!

Waking Up In Vegas is LIVE!!!
Natasha Preston’s highly anticipated new release Waking Up In Vegas, is out now to purchase on all platforms and in paperback!
Waking Up In Vegas is a contemporary romance, and book one in The One Series. Each book in the series will follow a different couple. 
There are bad hangovers, then there’s waking up married to your brother’s idiot friend.
On the trip of a lifetime, a drunken Wren and intoxicated Brody stumble upon a wedding ceremony and decide to tag along for the ride. But being spectators isn’t quite wild enough when you’ve got tequila in your toes, and before either of them can stop what they’re about to do, “We now pronounce you husband and wife.” 
Once sober and home, the incompatible newlyweds try everything within their power to end their pantomime marriage. Unfortunately for them, the promise and vows they made to spend their life together now aren’t as easy to break as they’d once hoped. 
Especially not when Brody starts to have a change of heart.
EXCERPT
“I actually don’t know where to start,” she mutters, looking at the long table of hot plates, stacked high with cooked food. Another table houses pastries and doughnuts, and another is for fruit and yoghurt.
I give the server our room numbers, and we’re told to sit wherever we’d like.
“Brody, there is too much. I’m definitely having a blueberry muffin. Look at the size of it!”
Luke and Mason aren’t here yet, so I lead Wren to a table because she can only focus on food. I pull a chair out for her.
“Did you just go all gentlemanly on me?”
“Just sit the fuck down,” I groan.
With a dazzling, toothy smile, she sits. There aren’t too many tables big enough for all six of us—at least, none that are free—but there are plenty of fours nearby. We’ll have to split up.
As if by magic, a hot-as-hell woman, probably around my age, steps to our table, holding two large jugs. “Can I offer you tea or coffee?”
You can offer me you.
“Coffee, please,” Wren says immediately, holding her mug up.
The woman smiles and pours Wren’s coffee; her eyes, though, are mostly on me.
I smile. “Coffee is great, er…”
“Ellen,” she says, smiling and tilting her head.
She pours mine.
“Babe, we need to go to the chemist. I forgot my pregnancy vitamins.”
My eyes flick from Ellen to Wren. Are you fucking kidding me?
Ellen makes her escape, muttering a quick, “Have a great day.”
Wren’s smile widens in a way I imagine a murderer’s would fresh from the kill.
I put my mug down and scratch my forehead. I need to breathe before I say something I might—or might not—regret.
“Wren… what was that?”
“I’m about to eat. I don’t want to do that with the image of you two eye-fucking each other.”
“Funny, some people might think that was jealousy.”
She sips her coffee. “Some people are idiots.”
Come and join Natasha Preston and Author Elena Matthews on December 6th for a joint release party!

Review

I am obviously really late with this post but life got in the way in my bookish world. Again. So here I am giving you all a review of the best funny romance book I read in a long time. Ms Preston has given us the perfect book to end of 2019. I am so grateful I was able to read it.

You all just have to go and read it. There is not enough words to tell you how awesome this book is. I could go on and introduce you to the characters but there is no point. You have to meet them by yourself and I am sure you will fall in love with Wren and Brody. They are hot. Funny and totally loveable.

Read it. Read it now.

You are welcome.

5 massive heavenly stars.

Review

I love Ms Cotton books. They pull you in and are not letting you got until you read it fully. And this book did not disappoint.

I loved Asher from the beginning. Granted that no one will beat #14 but Ash is really near. And I loved we could get to know him better. His feelings. Hidden thoughts and also his dreams. I felt so bad at times for him as life was just unfair. And it’s even worse when it comes from someone who supposed to love you.

I was not a big fan of Mya. It’s not that I didn’t like her. I just didn’t think she is the right for Ash. But I was so wrong and I am glad I was.

The Harder you fall is amazing read and deserves my 4.5 heavenly stars😍

RIVERDALE meets INCEPTION in this twisty and unique Ya coming-of-age romance by Ginger Scott

Quarterback.
Class president.
Burnout.
We all have our identities.
Most of the time, they come from our circumstances. They’re made by others—shoes for us to walk in whether they fit or not.
But what if?
What if we could take off those shoes.
What if we could wear a different pair?
What if those boxes we put ourselves in are better…worse?
And what if, when we do…we’re trapped there for good?
They all call me Cowboy.
She’s the damsel who doesn’t need to be rescued.
And him…he’s the villain.
This is our story. And this is how we want it to be told.

Evangeline Walker knows how quickly everything can change.
But nothing can prepare her for the moment she meets Rafe Hunter.
Intense gray eyes.
Wicked smile.
Tattoos inked on his skin just begging to be touched. 
Those aren’t the reasons Eva should stay away from him though.
The fact he’s the bassist for America’s hottest rock band is the reason she should run and never look back.
Everyone knows the greatest love stories all start somewhere.
… this is their beginning.
EXCERPT:
“I made you some hot chocolate.” He offered me the mug and I took a sip, the smooth rich liquid warming my insides.
“How very rock star of you.” 
“I try.” His gray eyes twinkled with laughter. “Come here.” 
I went to Rafe, and he eased the mug out of my hand, placing it on the ledge. His long fingers brushed my jaw, moving along my neck and into my hair as he tilted my face up to his. “I’ve wanted to do this again all night.” 
My hands wound around his neck as he kissed me, his lips brushing over mine with a heated desperation I felt right down to my toes. We stumbled back as Rafe’s hand slipped to the small of my back pushing me closer as he pressed me against the wall.
“Rafe…” I panted and he broke the kiss.
“You want me to stop?” His eyes searched mine, his pupils blown with lust.
“N- no.”
“Thank fuck.” He dived for me again, attacking my mouth with fervent need. One of his hands slid to my throat, stroking the skin there, his lips chasing his fingers. Sucking and biting, sending shocks of pleasure zinging through me.
“Where have you been all my life?” Rafe whispered into my neck, his words so low I wasn’t sure they were for me. But I’d heard them. Like a gunshot to the heart they’d impacted me.
It was crazy.
We didn’t know each other. We didn’t know any of the important stuff. But I was falling. Hurtling towards the ground hoping, praying, he’d be there to catch me.
“Eva, tell me what you want?” He lifted his face, eyes dark and stormy and so full of need. I swallowed hard.
“This.” I pulled his face to mine, kissing him deeply, rubbing myself against him shamelessly. His mouth curved, and he pushed his head to mine, forcing me further against the wall. My hands pressed at my sides, steadying myself as he hooked one of his hands under my thigh, hitching my leg around his hip. I could feel him thick and hard beneath his jeans, but I wasn’t ready for that.

REVIEW:

What I love about Ms Cotton books is that with every story she is able to surprise me. Shock me. And take me on a rollercoaster of feelings.

That’s what Rush did. Took me on a ride full of music, amazing lyrics and hot bad boys.

Rafe was a bad boy with good heart. And that is a perfect combination. Add to this a crazy best friend and an amazing adventure awaits.

Rush did what it says. It rushed me through the story but in a really really good way. Amazing start to new series. Cannot wait for the next part.

ARC received in exchange of an honest review and is part of the blog tour.
