The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L. Armentrout(Review Post)

Published October 8, 2019 by bookbesties

51E4uXjDV9L

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the world of the Lux with The Burning Shadow, the steamy, shocking second installment of the Origin series that will leave readers reeling.

When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux—only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.

Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is—and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.

Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.

And all the while, a new threat looms: reports of a flu-like, fatal virus that the government insists is being spread by Luxen. A horrifying illness that changes whoever it touches, spreading panic across a country already at its breaking point.

The Burning Shadow (Origin, #2)The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy CRAP this book was good! So many turns and WTF moments and the surprise ending that I DID NOT see coming..just wow! Jennifer has hit this one out of the park!

I have been a long time fan of this author and this world and diving back in gave me all the feels. This book pics up right were the last book(The Darkest Star) left off. After having discovered the truth about herself Evie is thrust into living a life she has no idea how to live and feelings she has no idea how to navigate. Luc is still by Evie’s side and as the feelings she has for him grows, so does her confusion on who and what she is…to him, to herself, to everyone.
Evie thought things would die down after the showdown from the last book, but when people start mysteriously getting sick she learns that it was only just the beginning.
Armentrout has outdone herself in this fast paced, can’t put down goodness! I found myself Laughing, crying and thoroughly SHOOK, with twist and turns I didn’t see coming. Armentrout has woven suspense, action and FEELING into a great sequel with a promise of more and exciting things to come.
This is how you write a freaking sequel!!

First I would like to say that this was a new author to me . Initially I was first pulled in by the cover and then the blurb intrigued me. I can say now that I am a fan. I like the writing style and the characters.
Logan Hunter is wealthy playboy persona living life and not wanting to much responsibilities in his life. Kendall works for a marketing firm and she has a lot going for her. She is booked with clients and handling being a single mom. Here enters her new client courtesy of her boss. Logan has made a bet and now his future is on the line. He needs Kendall’s help to sell a certain item but unfortunately she has no expertise with the products. Let’s not add to the fact that when she meets Logan he is the most beautiful man she has ever seen. Yes chemistry is hot. My Playboy is about to get an awakening. I love the banter between the two and then add the fact how does he proceed since she is a single mom? They both are fighting their attraction but we know how those plans usually go. Great story loved it . Can’t wait to read the next couple.

Love Me Tomorrow By Maria Luis(Review Post)

Published October 4, 2019 by bookbesties

 

 
 
They call her America’s
Sweetheart.
And me? I’m the
so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV. 
I’ve tried to forget
her. I’ve tried to move on. 
Until I discover that
her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor. 
If I were a gentleman,
I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.
If I were a gentleman,
I’d let her be . . . but I’m not
Savannah
Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her
breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing
but a liar.
All it
takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear:
“You’re going to beg, Savannah. Beg me to touch
you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all
over again before you have to beg for that too.” 
I’m no
gentleman.
But
Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.

OK so first I think any book from this author is a winner. Second I cant say enough how much I loved this couple. The setting is in New Orleans and you definitely get the big Easy vibe in this book. Owen is back home trying to move on with life post reality show that broke his heart. Of course heart broken by the one and only Savannah. She cant get Owen out of her head and things seem to turn when Owen finds out that Savannah family is taking over in the business next door. Owen I love. He is tatted and smooth. I love hearing his train of thoughts and the banter in his head. He is a real smooth guy and if I was Savannah I would be at his mercy. Savannah is independent and fighting the struggles of dealing with her family and the pressure from being in public eye.The journey between these two was cute and sexy and Owen is my new book boyfriend! Great read!

When the Marques was Mine by Caroline Linden(Review Post)

In the game of love…

Georgiana Lucas despises the arrogant and cruel Marquess of Westmorland even before learning that he’s won the deed to her friend Kitty’s home in a card game. Still, Georgiana assures Kitty the marquess wouldn’t possibly come all the way to Derbyshire to throw them out—until he shows up, bloody and unconscious. Fearing that Kitty would rather see him die, Georgiana blurts out that he’s her fiancé. She’ll nurse the hateful man back to health and make him vow to leave and never return. The man who wakes up, though, is nothing like the heartless rogue Georgiana thought she knew…

You have to risk it all

He wakes up with no memory of being assaulted—or of who he is. The bewitching beauty tending him so devotedly calls him Rob and claims she’s his fiancée even as she avoids his touch. Though he can’t remember how he won her hand, he’s now determined to win her heart. But as his memory returns and the truth is revealed, Rob must decide if the game is up—or if he’ll take a chance on a love that defies all

      Mistaken identities that turn enemies to lovers is the name of the game in this fantastic book!  Caroline Linden never fails to deliver a leading lady who has everything I love in a heroine as well as great story lines to make them shine.

  Reading this story and watching these characters not only blossom into their authentic selves (away from the pressure of society expectations) and overcome their misconceived judgments of each other to fall in love was incredibly touching.

     Georgiana Lucas’ shows her compassionate nature when she risks her own safety and rushed to the aid of a stranger who was being attacked on a remote country road.  She shows the depth of that compassion when she discovers the stranger is none other than the enemy of her dear friend and hostess but chooses to hide his identity and nurse him back to health.   Will the lie she told to conceal his true identity comes out and ruin her friendship or will it have her falling in love with a man she once despised?

     When Lord Robert Churchill-Gray, Marquess of Westmorland, won the house of Sir Charles Winston in a drunken card game, he didn’t want or need the house and planned to promptly return it to its rightful owner.  That is until the sore loser blackens his name to anyone who will listen including Rob’s own mother.  Not wanting to keep the property but wanting to teach Winston a lesson in humility, Rob travels to the estate to return the deed to Winston’s family and tell them just what he has been up to in London.  On the way there he is attacked: robbed and beaten unconscious.  When he awakens in an unknown bed, with no memory of who or where he is, he is forced to rely on the hospitality of strangers and the care of the beautiful woman everyone claims is his fiancé.  Will he recover his memories and return to his prior bachelor life of drinking and scandal or will he choose to change his ways and win the heart of a woman he once overlooked?

Such a great story that I couldn’t put down.

Fake Date by Monica Murphy(Review Post)

51ne+huw84L._SY346_“This book was like the best sort of dessert. I. Am. Addicted.” – #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken

Working at Bliss, Sarah Harrison deals with all sorts of–interesting clientele. Yet no one sparks her interest more than Jared Gaines, the ultra-rich, ultra-sexy businessman who frequents her shop, buying delicate little “gifts” for the women in his life.

But one day, Jared sends her a gift from Bliss. Then another–and another. So when Sarah walks into his office demanding to know why he can’t stop sending her gifts, he makes her an offer she somehow can’t refuse: be his fake girlfriend for the weekend while attending his brother’s engagement party.

Next thing Sarah knows, she’s in San Francisco, pretending to be in love with Jared. Not that it’s a hardship. Once you get the man away from the office, he’s much more relaxed. Sweet. Funny. Even…thoughtful? Oh, and sexier than ever, of course.

Their pretend relationship feels very real, very quickly. Soon Sarah’s in over her head. Could what she and Jared share turn into something real? Or is it all actually…fake?

OUT NOW

 Sarah works at a lingerie store and she has a certain customer by the name of Jared that comes in and he is bothersome but so handsome. Jared has been making purchases frequently but when he sees a chance to grab Sarah attention he goes for it. He needs a date for a family function and tag she is it. Sarah’s banter with her friends is funny and makes you want to be part of the friend group. The banter between Jared and Sarah is exciting. I found him to be a little mysterious at first and its interesting to see their relationship change. This is a great read all the way . It has a great flow to the story and well developed characters and cant wait for the next victim in this friend group!

I wouldn’t fall for your charm,
your arrogance, or how sexy you fill out that suit.
I wouldn’t fall for your deep brown
eyes or the way that muscle moves in your square jaw when you’re pissed.
 
I said I could resist you.
I was wrong…

I really enjoyed this read. The attraction between these two had you turning each page. Patton was broody but alpha and sexy wrapped up in a nice package.

Fletcher Patton is brooding and sexy. He is busy trying to get the deals for his company to come together. The last thing he needs is a distraction by the name of Raquel aka Rocky Morgan. She has just been hired at the company her sister used to work for and she knows that Patton is hard on his employees but little did she think that he would take her breath away. She did not think that she would be so attracted to her boss. Patton is trying to fight off his attraction but some plans don’t always work out. Past issues threaten the close relationship that has become and choices will have to be made.

I loved the attraction in this book as well as the read of it. It was a Very good read.

Jock Road by Sara Ney(Review Post)

Published September 5, 2019 by bookbesties

 

 


EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL. 

 

Those are Jackson Jennings, Jr’s three mantras. His entire life, he’s been a trained athlete with only one end-game: the Pro’s. No girls. No parties. No alcohol. 
 
EAT. SLEEP. FOOTBALL.
Repeat.  
Every Friday night, Triple J cruises the strip on campus, bored, lonely and conditioned not to party. But the night he meets Charlotte Edmonds on the side of the road, he wonders if his three mantras will ever be enough. 
 
BIG. DUMB. JOCK.
Charlie has no time for Jackson’s antics. Not when he’s stealing her food or teases her to no end, making her tingle in all the right places. But if she’s ever going to have a boyfriend, she’d choose one who isn’t a Neanderthal. One with manners and actual time to spend with her. Not a hulking man-child who cruises the strip at night, in his Big. Dumb. Truck.

I am a Sara Ney fan so I was very excited for this one. Jackson was sweet and rocking that southern twang. Charlie is feisty and funny.  These two together have cute banter. Things happen when you are not looking for it. They both try to fight their attraction but we all know how that usually turns out.

Jackson has it all right now. He is well respected on campus and could have his pick of the women. Only thing is he wants no distractions and the focus is on his football life. What happens when after a chance mtg over a chicken sandwich life starts to take you on a new path. Charlie is starving but cant believe this southern big lug who has taken the food right out of her hand! After a couple more run ins with Jackson and she wants to dislike him but sees her self falling for him. Will Jackson be able to make room for Charlie?
