First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…

What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

Review ♥ Mr. President by Katy Evans

Review ♥ Mr. President by Katy Evans

I quite enjoyed the beginning of Mr. President. Once I got to the heart of the story, though, one thought kept repeating in my mind: “Am I reading the same book as all my friends?” When this book was released, my Goodreads feed exploded with people gushing about it. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I finished the book feeling disappointed—like 2.5 to 3 stars unsatisfied.

Review ♥ Grip by Kennedy Ryan

Review ♥ Grip by Kennedy Ryan

I apologize in advance to the author of the next book I read. Their book may be wonderful, but there’s no way right now that it can live up to the way Grip by Kennedy Ryan touched me. The feels! Oh my goodness, the feels! I’ve lost the ability to even. My book hangover is a living, breathing, horrible/wonderful thing. I read the free prequel, Flow, yesterday morning because I’d heard good things about it, and hey… free. I loved it and immediately 1-clicked this full-length conclusion. Thankfully, I had the day off, so I stayed in my PJs and dived straight into Grip. This story sunk its claws into me and would not let me go. I didn’t come up for air until I finished.

Review ♥ Flow by Kennedy Ryan

April 17, 2017 Angela New Adult, Reviews, Romance
Review ♥ Flow by Kennedy Ryan

Flow surprised me. It is the prequel to the full-length standalone novel, Grip. I tend to lower my expectations for books as short as Flow. The storytelling is typically rushed, leaving readers with a flat perception of the characters and an overall unsatisfied feeling. Flow is a wonderful exception.

Review ♥ Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Review ♥ Lingus by Mariana Zapata

I have never believed in Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fairy was highly suspect as a child. However, the idea of a fairy godmother, while not remotely realistic, has always appealed to me. Mariana Zappata is like a literary fairy godmother, able to transform the deepest of book slumps into joy simply with strokes on a keyboard. I was in a book Funk with a capital “F” after reading my last book. Zappata worked her magic with Lingus, though, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
