Back in March, when it was still cold and depressing outside, I got an ARC sign-up form from Laura Barnard who was going to release her new book, Excess Baggage, in May. The novel promised to be full of sunshine, summer and old feelings – the perfect getaway from this weather. Now it is May and the weather over here in Germany still hasn’t improved since March. So what was better than turning on your ebook reader and seeing the ARC loading? I couldn’t wait to start with this second chance novel under the sun of Luna Island.
Erica Bennett and her friends are on vacation to have a few days to themselves and away from the hectic and stressful life at home. Erica doesn’t expect to stumble upon Jack Lawson – her first holiday romance back when she was fifteen. It is not long until sparks fly and Erica and Jack rekindle their old feelings. But what happens after their vacation is over? Is their chance meeting a second shot at something real or will this stay another holiday romance? Continue reading “Excess Baggage – Review”

Hello book lovers and happy May!
How have you been the past month? Since March was such a slow reading and reviewing month for us, we were very happy that April was the total opposite. Besides reading and reviewing books from our ever growing TBR, we were able to review a few ARCs as well as our first two NetGalley books! Yay! In case you’ve missed a few reviews, here are the links once again for you to catch up:
And here is a list of our reads and hopeful reviews in May:
The Summer Remains by Seth King, The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda, The Siren by Kiera Cass, The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon, Here’s to Tomorrow by Teagan Hunter, and Wait for Me by Caroline Leech.
Lots of bookish love,
♥ Ashley & Sabrina ♥
Everyone was raving about Kandi Steiner‘s new release, even before it was even available for purchase. So of course I had to buy Revelry and read it too.
Wren Ballard is a successful Seattle based fashion designer. Her love life, however, is anything but successful: she is 27 and freshly divorced. To free her mind of the past few months, she decides to spend the summer in the mountains just outside of Seattle. Wren finds the perfect place to stay and the people in town make her feel welcome immediately. Well, not all of them. Her broody and good-looking neighbor seems not to care about Wren at all. But Anderson Black does not only care about her, he doesn’t really care about anyone in town. He is lost and has his own demons to fight, this is why he can’t deal with someone else’s problems on top of his. But this all changes when he comes face to face with Wren. Sometimes you need to get lost in order to find yourself. Continue reading “Revelry – Review”
I’ve had this novel on my TBR for quite some time and I finally had the chance to read it. And thanks to Ashley’s awesome birthday present last month, I had the chance to read a signed and personalized (!) copy. ♥
Hollywood meets dirt road. Cole Masten meets Summer Jenkins.
When Hollywood actor and newest bachelor Cole Masten decided to film his new movie in small town Quincy, Georgia, no one was prepared for the havoc he would cause – and least of them Summer. Or was Cole not prepared to meet the feisty blonde? Either way, Cole and Summer were from different worlds and when they collided, no one was sure if they made it out alive. Continue reading “Hollywood Dirt – Review”
The “Love on the Edge” series by Molly E. Lee is full of adventure, thrill and lots of adrenaline. Molly took us storm chasing twice in Oklahoma, treasure hunting in Israel and deep sea diving in the Bahamas. This time, she takes us on an even bigger adventure: we are about to discover the Amazon rainforest. And not only Easton will be there. Dash, Connell and the girls are on board too! Yes! You read correctly! All the guys in one novel! How cool is that? But it gets even better: Molly introduces us to a new man on the edge. Wade is a stuntman and this adventure will be his and the guys’ biggest yet.
Easton is certain that he found the lost city of Paititi in the Amazon rainforest. The production company of his TV show takes this as an opportunity to air a special series of the discovery. For the next leg of his expedition, Easton now needs experienced and skilled crew members to help him uncover the treasures hidden in the half submerged temple. For that, the production company hired storm chaser Dash, deep sea diver Connell and stuntman Wade. All four men need to work together and combine their individual skills in order to survive in the jungle. But this is easier said than done since the jungle has its own rules of survival. But is the Amazon jungle really their biggest threat on this mission? Continue reading “Edge of Brotherhood – Shared Review”
