I'm finally home after struggling through my brother's illness and death. But, home is definitely a bit different. My best friend (the only person alive now that knows my secret) has a new boyfriend; and he has a friend. Shane Maxton: bad boy, tattooed rock god, eye candy extraordinaire. He is also New York City's most arrogant, self-serving, son of a, well, a definite one-night stand kind of a guy.
But, it doesn't matter to me because I've spent my existence looking for the love of my life, my angel. And, there is nothing that Shane Maxton can do to change that.

I had heard a lot of good things about this book so just over a year ago I bought it and all those good things was right as I really enjoyed it.

I think that the cover is a bit too simple for my liking and it doesn't really give anything away about the book. I do like the muted colours as that does tie in with the book.

When I first started this book I didn't think I was actually liking it but while thinking that I was wondering what was going to happen and maybe buy the next book, so maybe I didn't dislike it that much. I loved that I never knew what was going on and kept me guessing right until they very end. By the end of this book I was so enthralled and it had me laughing and nearly crying. I also loved that it was mainly focused on the romance side of the book as for most part I forgot that it was even a paranormal book, the music was a fantastic added bonus. There was some really sweet moments and some very steamy moments which made for a perfect blend. The ending was great as it left me wanting more but I will worn those who don't like cliff hangers (I don't usually but I won't have to wait ages for the next book) this one ends with a major cliff hanger.

Even though I didn't think I was going to like most of the characters I ended up loving them. Grace was not like the sweetness and light like most female main characters have been as she was strong even when she didn't want to be. Shane is another male character that I have come to love even if he was a bit of a man whore but he soon showed his softer side. Grace's best friend Lea was really funny especially when she was drunk but what I liked the most about her was that she was always there for Grace. I also loved the rest of Shane's band as they where all so very funny. There was a couple of characters that I didn't like but I think that was what was supposed to happen.

Overall a surprising great read that I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't read it.

Book Review: Incarnate (Newsoul, #1) by Jodi Meadows

(Click image to take you to Goodreads)

Format: Hardback
Publishers: Katherine Tegen Books 
Published: 31st January 2012
Pages: 374
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Dystopia
Main Characters: Ana, Sam
Date Read: 16th February - 22nd February 2014

NEWSOULAna is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.
NOSOULEven Ana's own mother thinks she's a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she'll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?
HEARTSam believes Ana's new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana's enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else's life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

I received this for my Birthday 2 years ago and I have now finally gotten around to reading it! It was worth the wait as I did enjoy it.

This is one of my favourite covers as it is just stunning. I love everything about this cover especially the colours as they make the cover stand out even more.

When I first started this book I actually wasn't sure I was going to like it as for the most part I was bored. I didn't mind that in the end as it was needed to build the world that Meadows created. I loved that it was completely different to other books that I have read. I felt that it was very beautifully lyrically written  which I think worked well the nod to the music. The slow build of romance was great to see and they seemed so sweet together even if they didn't want to admit it. There was a bit of predictability that I usually don't mind but I wanted something different with this book. I kind of liked the ending as a few questions was answered but also left it open for it to continue into the rest of the series I just don't feel like I need to rush to continue the series even though I already have the second book waiting!

For most part I wasn't quite sure about the characters as I felt it took them a while to get to know each of them it's even harder when most of them used to be other people. Ana was a really sweet character which surprised me especially when we find out more about what happened and happens throughout her life. She was also emotionally strong person even if she doesn't agree. Sam was another sweet character that I liked as he was always helping Ana when no one else would. In the end apart from the ones that we where supposed to despise I liked I just didn't love them.

Overall this is more of a world building book so at times it was hard to love but I'm hoping that will change in the next book.

Book Review: Switched by Cassie Mae

(Click image to take you to Goodreads)
Format: Kindle (earc)
Publishers: Flirt by Random House 
Published: 2nd December 2013
Pages: 259
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Main Characters: Kayla, Wesley, Reagan, Talon
Date Read: 15th February - 20th February 2014
Rating Given:
 photo five.jpg
Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart before Talon has a chance to give Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.

Soon enough, the once happy couple is fighting. Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “only a friend” ever should. But just when everything seems to be falling into place, Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together and discover a hitch in their plan they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.

I found this book on Netgalley and I thought it sounded like an interesting book so I requested it and I'm glad I did as I loved every minute of it.

 The cover looks a little bit like the Losing It by Cora Carmack cover but a little more colourful. I do like this cover but that mainly has to do with the use of colours, I just don't feel like it's in keeping with the story, for starters the book is set over Christmas but this cover looks more like Spring.

After thinking the blurb sounded interesting last year to this year thinking I might not like it, I wasn't expecting a lot but I was addicted to it and I just wanted to read more and more and then when I was nearly finished I didn't want it to end. I found Switched to be such a sweet, light hearted and funny book which I just wasn't expecting. Even when I had (eventually stopped for some sleep) stopped I found myself thinking about what is going to happen next and how it's all going to get resolved but I didn't expect what did happen to happen. I loved seeing the growing attraction between Wesley and Kayla it was so sweet even if they didn't see it themselves which is where some of the humour came into the story. The ending was brilliant as it tied everything up in a bright and shiny bow!

I never expected to like any of the characters but I found them all endearing in their own unique way. Kayla was the main one that I expected to hate seeing as she was trying to get her best friend to split up with her boyfriend that she wanted but for some reason I couldn't hate her. Wesley was my favourite characters in this book as he was so funny but he was also kind (even if he wanted to split up his best friend so he could be with his girlfriend) and was always there for Kayla. I wish Wesley was in it more or even better if it had some of the story from his point of view as I would have loved to have seen how he was coping with everything going on plus it would be more Wesley time which I couldn't get enough of. Reagan I think was my least favourite character through out the book as she always wanted to embarrass everyone which is a quality I don't like. By the end I did warm to her as she seemed to be a true friend. Although Talon was in the book a lot I still don't feel like we got to know the real Talon but what did come across was he was a sweet guy.

Overall a new surprise favourite of mine as I enjoyed every minute of Switched.

Waiting on Wednesday #20

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Here's this week's book I can't wait for...

Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1) by Danielle Paige
Expected Publication: 1st April 2013

I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still the yellow brick road, though—but even that's crumbling.

What happened?
Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.
I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
I've been trained to fight.
And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman's heart.
Steal the Scarecrow's brain.
Take the Lion's courage.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!

Someone on Facebook mentioned this book and I had to take a look and ever since I have been dying to read it. Not too long to wait now!

What're you waiting on?

Book Review: Breathe (Sea Breeze, #1) by Abbi Glines

(Click image to take you to Goodreads)
Format: Paperback
Publishers: Simon & Schuster UK 
Published: 29th Agust 2013
Pages: 333
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Main Characters: Sadie, Jax
Date Read: 9th February - 15th February 2014
Rating Given:

 photo five.jpg


In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy read from bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal—if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house—maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless—and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.

Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out…

After reading and loving The Vincent Brothers I knew this series would be my next. I can't believe us in the UK had such a long wait for this one as the next three in the series came before this one did!

I love the covers for the UK as they are very much artistic which I do have a soft spot for. I also love that for this particular cover it has a guitar as it is in keeping with the story.  The use of colour in the cover I feel works really well and I'm also glad that so far the other books (that are out in the UK) are the same so you know that they are apart of a series, even though this didn't mind as each book has different main characters.

I had very high expectations for this book after reading The Vincent Brothers/Boys and it didn't disappoint! From the moment I opened the first page I was hooked it was so beautifully written I just got swept away with the whole story. I haven't read many books that have one of the main characters as a rock star and now I have this feeling this won't be the last. I loved the romance side of the story was great as there was some really sweet and tender moments as well as some hot ones! There was a bit of heartbreak in there as well which I kind of expected but I didn't expect it to be so sad it had me in tears at certain times. The ending was great I just wish I could get more from Sadie and Jax.

There was so many great characters in this book with not very many that I didn't like. Sadie was a great character in the fact that she was sweet and kind and looked after anyone who needed it even if it was her own mother. In fact I would say she might have been too perfect. Jax I loved from the moment he was introduced to the story and the more I read about him the more I fell in love. He was such a sweetheart and some of the things he did for Sadie was so touching. Marcus was another character I fell in love with and I felt so sorry for him, I'm so glad he has his own story next as I can't wait to find out more about him.

Overall this was an amazing book I have a feeling that Abbi Glines can do no wrong!

Blog Tour: Book Review: Once Upon A Masquerade by Tamara Hughes

About the Book EBook:
293 pages
Release Date: February 10, 2014
ISBN: 978-1622664511

New York City, 1883 A Prince Charming meets his match… Self-made shipping magnate Christopher Black first spies Rebecca Bailey at a masquerade ball and is captivated by her refreshing naiveté and sparkling beauty. She’s a stark contrast to the hollow behaviour of the ton and the guile of his former fiancée, but the closer he gets to her secrets, the further she pushes him away. A Cinderella with a secret… Rebecca is drawn to the charismatic Christopher from the first, but she cannot risk him discovering that she is really a housemaid impersonating an heiress. Her father's life depends on it. A Happily Ever After that could never be… When Christopher’s investigation of the murder of his best friend leads him straight to Rebecca, he fears his ingénue may be a femme fatale in disguise. Now he must decide if he can trust the woman he's come to love, or if her secrets will be his downfall.

Book Review:

I was asked if I wanted to take part in a Blog Tour for Once Upon a Masquerade and once I saw it said Cinderella in the blurb I jumped at the chance to review. I just wished I enjoyed it as much as I did Cinderella.

The cover is nice but I don't feel as though it's a gorgeous cover. I love the mask it looks so intricate and it really stands out over the rest of the cover.

When I first started this book I thought I was going to really enjoy it as it captured my interest and it made me laugh but the further I got into the story the more I started to dislike it. Nothing I read was believable especially for the time period in which the book was set it just didn't make sense. I didn't feel like the romance side of the story was very romantic as I didn't really believe in their love/like for one another and there was so many lies that I can't believe they would be able to trust one another. I kind of liked the murder mystery of the story as it was intriguing but I do feel like the solving of the murder was a bit of a let down as it was a little glossed over. I did like that the ending went a little further into the future so that I could see how things ended up but again I felt it was glossed over.

I wasn't a huge fan of most of the characters. Rebecca started of an interesting character who would do anything for her father but I felt like she went a bit too far. Again I started off liking Christopher as he seemed nice but by the end he really annoyed me and I also felt for someone who was meant to be into detective work he was very observant. Spencer was my favourite character he was so sweet and really funny there was things that he said or did that had me laughing.

Overall it wasn't a bad book but it was no Cinderella.

Book Review: Shattered Promises (Shattered Promises, #1) by Jessica Sorensen

(Click image to take you to Goodreads)
Format: Kindle
Publishers: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Published: 24th February 2013
Pages: 372
Genre: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
Main Characters: Gemma, Alex
Date Read: 4th February - 10th February 2014
Rating Given:
 photo two.jpg


For twenty-one year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. She knows nothing about her past and has been haunted by the same monsters in her nightmares for the last few months. Unemotional and numb to life, she feels disconnected from everyone. Until the very first day she cries. After that, nothing in her life is the same.
Her emotions slowly surface and she starts experiencing love, happiness, and anger, feelings she never knew existed. But they leave her confused and she doesn’t know whether to embrace them or run away from them.
Her life only gets more complicated when she meets Alex. Sexy, arrogant, and secretive, Alex can get under Gemma’s skin like no one can. Yet she’s drawn to him by an invisible connection she has no control over. She’s also seen him before. In her nightmares.
Every part of Gemma’s mind is screaming at her to stay away from Alex, but every other part of her is begging to get close to him. But the closer she gets, the more she realizes Alex knows more about her than he originally let on.
As secrets about her past unravel, Gemma’s life becomes threatened. She needs to figure out what’s going on, before she winds up dead. But the only person she can turn to for answers is the one person she isn’t sure she can trust.

**Mature Content Warning** 17+ for language and sexual content.
(A re-imagining of my young adult book, The Fallen Star, told as a New Adult Paranormal)

I bought this book as it was a freebie on Amazon and it sounded very interesting. I was really excited about reading this book especially after loving another book by the same author but Shattered Promises left me feeling a little let down.

 Shattered Promises has had a few different covers and I think that this is one of my favourite versions as I love the colour and the use of stars in the background which is in keeping with the story.

This book is one of the most confusing books that I have ever read as there was so much going on and the closer I felt to a conclusion the more questions was thrown at us. I really couldn't get into it and there was times when I was close to not finishing it but there was a couple of times when I would start to like it which was why I never put it down. There was a lot of paranormal creatures in this book, you name it and they where either in it or mentioned but it did feel different to a lot of paranormal books that I have read which I enjoyed. The romance side of the story was completely unbelievable as I didn't feel like there was any chemistry between Alex and Gemma or even Laylen. I felt the ending did improve the book as it got interesting and now I do want to find out what happens next it's just I don't want to actually read the books.

I never warmed to most of the characters as they where either annoying or untrustworthy. Gemma had only just got her emotions back and she seemed to be feeling them all at the same time which did make me feel sorry for her, however there was a lot of times when I just couldn't believe the things that she was doing. For one of the first times I really didn't warm to the main male character Alex as when we first actually met him he was a jerk and when he was being kind I felt like there was a reason behind his kindness. Laylen was one of the few characters that I actually liked as he seemed more trustworthy than any of the others and he didn't seem to have an ulterior motive.

Overall I was very disappointed with this book but there was times when it was ok.

Book Review: Hourglass (Hourglass, #1) by Myra McEntire

(Click image to take you to Goodreads)
Format: Paperback
Publishers: Egmont
Published: 14th June 2011
Pages: 390
Genre: YA, Dystopia, Romance
Main Characters: Emerson, Michael
Date Read: 1st February - 6th February 2014
Rating Given:
 photo fourfive.jpg


One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may also change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should've happened?

If I remember rightly I was gifted this book a few years ago and I have now finally gotten around to reading it and for the most part I wish I had read it sooner as it was really good.

I really love the cover it looks really quirky and slightly different to the other covers that have a girl on the cover. Even though you can't feel the over but trust me it has a beautiful velvet feel to it which I love, I just had to keep feeling it while I was reading it.

For the first part of the story it was quite confusing to the point where I didn't understand what was happening. Once I got over the confusion I fell in love with it and just got hooked by the end I didn't want to put it down. I haven't read that many time travelling books but I do find them engaging and this one was no different. There was a lot of things that kept happening in this book that I just never expected but there was also times when I predicted what was going to happen. The romance side of the story was good but I just wished there was more of it. I kind of enjoyed the ending as a lot of things was cleared up but I do feel like some of the issues was glossed over.

Most of the characters was enjoyable to read about but then there was some that I just didn't like but I guess that's how we was supposed to feel. Emerson was a great character as she seemed such a strong willed character but she also had a vulnerable side to her that really made me feel for her. She is a very short character but that didn't stop her from being physically strong especially when she threw Michael over her shoulder which I found really funny. I don't really know what I feel about Michael he was funny at times but then he would also annoyed me but overall he was nice. My favourite character would have to be Kaleb even if he wasn't in it much but when he was he was so funny but he was considerate to everyone. I can't wait for the next book as it's from Kaleb's point of view so I will get to see a lot more from him.

Overall Hourglass was a really enjoyable book although there was times when it got a bit too confusing.

BOTM #28

I had a great month of reading this month as a few of them where 5 stars I haven't had this many great books read in the same month for awhile now. Here's what I read in January 2014:

  • Gerard's Beauty (Kingdom, #2) by Marie Hall - 4/5
  • Wild Cards (Wild Cards, #1) by Simone Elkeles - 5/5
  • My Soul to Take (Soul Screamers, #1) by Rachel Vincent - 4.5/5

I absolutely adored this book even more than the other five stars I gave because if I could give this book more I would! My other five star books are still five star ratings and I love them so much but this book just took me somewhere no other book has ever done for me it's the best book I have read so far.
My review will be up at some point during this week so look out for that.
