180 Seconds – Review

32487648I have been in a book slump for half of June. I’ve been wanting to read something great, but constantly feeling bored with my current reads instead. In most cases, it’s no fault of the books I’ve been reading; I have simply been distracted. Part of it might be that I’ve read more than I ever have in the past year and a half and maybe I am now harder to impress. Whatever the case may be, I had an unused trial of Kindle Unlimited and decided 180 Seconds by Jessica Park would be the book to break the slump. I’ve seen the excellent reviews of this novel by readers I trust, and knew it would be exactly what I was looking for. Luckily, 180 seconds was everything I needed to read. It was emotional, touching, and had a plot that never failed to be interesting.

When Allison Dennis is roped into a video recorded social experiment, she never expects her life to change in three short minutes. She is told to sit across from a guy and stare into his eyes for 180 seconds – what comes next, no one could have imagined, especially not Allison. She lives a reclusive life, free from the scrutiny of anyone. Keeping people at arm’s length prevents them from hurting you, right? As a girl who knows the hardness of the world firsthand, through the foster care system, breaking down her walls proves to be a challenge endeavor. Continue reading “180 Seconds – Review”

Black Box – Review

black boxWhen purchasing the book back in July of 2016 I was immediately intrigued by the romantic cover. Yes, it was a cover buy, but that was not the only reason, the blurb played a part also. Fast forward one year, I finally decided to read Cassia Leo’s novel, but the story I got was not what I expected at all.

At nineteen, Mikki is tired of the meds and the hopelessness in her life. In order to make the pain go away, she booked a plane ticket to LA, not to turn her life around, but to kill herself. Twenty-one-year old Crush has his own demons to fight and found an outlet in writing and playing music. He is on his way to LA to record a song he was working on for the past three years: Black Box. When Mikki and Crush meet in Terminal B, it takes only a short while for both of them to realize they have met each other on two different and tragic events in their pasts before. Is it fate that brought them together a third time? Continue reading “Black Box – Review”

The Over Duet – Review

The”Over Duet” which consists of Low over High and Ever over After was sitting on my kindle for what it seems like forever. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to pick those books up  because I really enjoyed them.

IMG_0050editedLow Over High begins with an angsty, mysterious, yet powerful prologue of the main character Marlo Rivers (a part of the prologue is also the blurb of the novel). She talks about her cynical personality and her non-belief in hope and faith in humankind because those are only cliches “to keep the dreamers dreaming.” Marlo was not always like that, circumstances in her past made her that way. She tried to run from it for the last eight years but the past has a way of catching up and for Marlo it is in form of a crumpled note left on her porch. Continue reading “The Over Duet – Review”

Here’s To Yesterday – Review

IMG_9914editedIf you’ve read my review of Here’s To Tomorrow, you probably know that I really enjoyed it (and that you should pick it up too!). Here’s To Yesterday is the second installment in the Here’s To series and I couldn’t wait to dive into it.

To others, Maura Doughers lives the perfect life: she has money and the perfect soldier boyfriend. But appearances can be deceiving. Maura starts to realize that the person everyone wants her to be, is not the person she is meant to be. The boyfriend she should be happy with, makes her everything but happy.
What Maura really wants is forbidden, but she wants it, no matter the consequences! Continue reading “Here’s To Yesterday – Review”

Here’s To Tomorrow – Review

IMG_9901edited“Teagan Hunter who?” I have to admit, that was my initial reaction about a year ago too, when I heard her name for the first time. But you know what I love? Indie authors! It is a shame that too many of them are still unknown. On top of that, they have to compete against the big well-known published authors. So why not take a chance on them? And that’s what I did with Teagan Hunter‘s Here’s To Tomorrow – and Teagan didn’t disappoint.

Rae Kamden just graduated from college and can’t wait to conquer the big world – or at least that’s what she thinks she wants. She’s torn between leaving her small town and moving to Boston to start a big career. This is when she runs into Hudson Tamell. Although the last seven years haven’t been easy for him, he finally has his life exactly where he wants it. However, meeting Rae and her unfiltered mouth that day makes him rethink everything. Can both handle each others baggage? Continue reading “Here’s To Tomorrow – Review”
