Give Me a Reason Book Review

Give Me a Reason by A.L. Jackson

Give Me a Reason by A.L. Jackson book review

Honestly, the first thing that made me read this book was the cover! It is probably my most favorite cover ever!! I bought the book just for that reason alone.

Now onto the book, I really enjoyed it and am glad the cover drew me in. I loved Trent. He was an alpha male who was strong, brash, rough around the edges…but really sweet on Eden. He wanted to deny his attraction to her (and her to him), but it happened anyways. There were twists and turns in this book that I didn’t see coming, and was shocked a few times.

Eden is such a sweetheart. She is all that’s good, and is only trying to save the school her dad runs. Her sister is no good, but she still wants to try to see the good in her. She is wholesome and that never changes, I like that about her. She helps soften Trent some, it makes them perfect together.

I definitely enjoyed this book, and the second one too. Looking forward to book 3!

The Guarded One Book Review

The Guarded One by Brittney Sahin

Going into this book, I definitely had high hopes for Beckett and Sydney. I can honestly say, I was not disappointed. These two were fire.

Beckett is his growly self, but he opens up to Sydney like he does no one else. We get to see why he is the way he is, and it’s surprising. Sydney sees the sweet, compassionate side of him. He definitely wasn’t looking for love, or a relationship, but he found it. He wasn’t afraid to follow where it went though, and I loved that about him. I honestly thought Beckett was going to take Asher’s spot as my favorite, but Asher still holds that spot (not by much, but he’s there).

Sydney is such a strong, kick butt female. She holds all in, except with Beckett. She lets him see sides of her no one else gets to (except her son). Sydney is one of my favorite female main characters from Brittney…honestly probably from any book by any author. I love strong female leads, who isn’t afraid to count on a man, but stands on her two feet quite well.

I enjoyed some of the twists and turns in this, and definitely had some “whoa” moments.

I loved reading about these two, and was definitely surprised when Brittney said she was putting them together. But it works, and it works well. Definitely another great story by Brittney, with some cameos by some of our favorites from other series!

Wild About You by Rebecca Jenshak – Review

I really enjoyed this second-chance hockey romance by Rebecca Jenshak. My all-time favorite character of hers, Maverick, almost lost his top spot. I just loved Tyler. He was sweet, caring, and somewhat lost when he took in his little sister. He suddenly became a “father” overnight.

I loved the dynamics of his relationship with his sister (lost, didn’t know what to do, but learning along the way), the team, and Piper. I loved how his team stepped up to become big brothers to his sister, and how they acted towards her. They were what I would want in big brothers. You also got to see sides of them you wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

Tyler and Piper were together when they were 18. He broke up with her, but didn’t really want to and has always wanted his second chance. He finally gets it. He adores Piper, and truly does love her. I loved reading about them two and watching their story unfold. I love how open Tyler is throughout the book and not afraid to admit to how he is feeling, even to his hockey friends.

“Because I’ve missed you every day for four years and because now that I’ve seen you again, I can’t imagine another day going by where I can’t.” Swoon!

Definitely worth the read, and if you want a little more Maverick, you will also get that in this book! Watch out though, you might just fall in love with Tyler a little bit more. Maybe.

Wild About You

Wild About You by Rebecca Jenshak is now live! 

My review coming later tonight! Tyler is now my second favorite Rebecca Jenshak character (after Maverick of course)!

A month ago, I was a rookie with the best stats in the league. I was traveling the world, playing hockey, and making more money than I ever dreamed.

Then my sister showed up on my doorstep with nowhere else to go.

I don’t know the first thing about being responsible for a troubled teen, and the team jet isn’t exactly kid-friendly.

Enter Piper. My sister’s new teacher and nanny.

Smart, nurturing, and just as beautiful as I remember.

I fell in love with her four years ago and never stopped.

Too bad she hates my guts.

We need her.

And this time, I’m not letting her go.

Tutoring the Player by Rebecca Jenshak

Tutoring the Player (Campus Wallflowers) by [Rebecca Jenshak]

Another book that I just love by Rebecca Jenshak. I can honestly say that when I started the book, I didn’t know who the main characters were going to be and was a little surprised on who the main H was. I can say I loved how it turned out!

Daisy is a self-proclaimed Wallflower. Well, let’s be honest, I don’t think she really likes the name wallflower, but it is what it is. Jordan, however, is a player. He’s the popular hockey player who has no problem with the ladies. But then he spends time with Daisy and wants to keep spending time with her. He wasn’t afraid to try some manipulation to get what he wanted. It was great watching Daisy and Jordan’s relationship grow from tutoring to friendship to more.

I really enjoyed Jordan’s character. He was funny and could bring out a different side to Daisy than what she showed everyone else. That worked both ways though with Daisy bringing out a different side to Jordan that no one else saw either. He could be sweet and caring with her. Both of these characters kept me engaged. Definitely worth a read!

Can’t stand stupid people.

Designing lately has been sporadic. I just haven’t felt very creative. Emotionally drained, life constantly changing, nothing is normal anymore. So, designs have taken a back seat. With that said, I did make a new design this morning. “Can’t stand stupid people, so please go away!”

This design is PERFECT for those who are tired of dealing with stupidity day in and day out. We deal with it EVERY DAY. Let people know you are done dealing with stupid. You can buy this design on a hat, shirt, mug, and more! Check out the design here on RedBubble.

Thank you for supporting me, and if you ever have a design you want made, shoot me a message!

Stroked Long by Meghan Quinn

31452721. sy475

If you have never read Meghan Quinn before, do it. She has some really good books. A lot of hers are Rom Coms (Romantic Comedy) and seriously she has me in stitches laughing so hard I cry. Some of hers straight up make me bawl with sadness, but they always have a HEA (Happily Ever After). With that said, I have to give my review of “Stroked Long” by Meghan Quinn.

This is one of my most favorite Meghan Quinn books. I LOVE Bodi and Ruby. I laughed so hard during this book, I cried. Ruby is one of my favorite female characters probably ever. She was so awkward, it was cute. She was herself always and didn’t care what others thought. And Bodi, I felt for him so much, I just fell in love with his character. He had OCD from childhood trauma, and you just felt his pain at times. He was sweet to those he loved though (only 3 people he held close), and you just love who he is.

This book is book 2 in a series about two Olympic swimmers and one diver. So worth the read!

The Hunted One by Brittney Sahin

The Hunted One (Falcon Falls Security #1)

Every time Brittney writes a new book, I find myself with a book hangover. I swear her books just get better and better!

This new series is going to be so good. I love that she has characters from Stealth Ops show up, but that she has introduced a bunch of new ones for us to get to know. Especially Griffin. He is definitely an alpha male who I absolutely loved. I am glad that Savanna got her second happily ever after, and with someone who understands how much she loved Marcus, but realizes she can love him too.

“And then a stranger came into my life and called me Sugar.” She closed her eyes. “And the page turned.”

This book has all the suspense and romance. My two favorite things together. Griffin helps show Savanna she can find love again, and with someone different from Marcus. He makes her feel again, and she needed that. He had his own issues to work through, and it was good watching him grow. I will definitely be rereading this one again soon.

Wild Love by Rebecca Jenshak

Wild Love (Campus Nights #4)

I have enjoyed this series very much, and am glad she finished it with Johnny Maverick and Dakota’s story. These two have always had chemistry throughout the rest of the series, so it was good to finally see them get their own story together. Johnny is such a lovable character. He is open with his feelings, loves people, and is such a sweet guy. Dakota has always been good friends with Johnny, never really taking his flirts seriously, and then she does..bam. So sweet. This book did make me tear up some, made me laugh, and was all over a good book. It made me love Maverick even more than before!

The Broken One by Brittney Sahin

The Broken One (Falcon Falls Security #2)

I don’t know how Brittney does it, but she seems to always out do herself with each book she puts out. Jesse and Ella were WOW. Jesse had me feeling all the emotions. You know he has been holding back from Ella Mae, but you never understood why. Especially when you could feel the emotions between them two in other books. I cried quite a bit, but also laughed and smiled. Ella is a strong character, and I love how Brittney does that, I love strong female leads. You felt all the ups and downs with the characters and even had cameos by A.J., Chris and Rory. I love how she does that too.

“Because Jesse did more than break my heart. I think he broke me too. He broke so much of me,” she cried. “And I’m just not sure if he can help me put the pieces back together.”

“I’ve always known you were the one, Ella Mae. There’s never been anyone but you,” he said slowly. “You were with me in Iraq even though you didn’t know it. I had your picture with me. Always. Yours was the first face I looked at when I woke and the last face I saw before going to sleep.”

How can you not feel the emotion in that? I love these two, and am so happy to finally have read their book! You get the suspense, the mystery, and the action along with emotions and relationships. What more can you want?
