Review: Work in Progress by Staci Hart

Image
Her fake husband is a Work In Progress… 

Work in Progress, an all-new romantic comedy from Staci Hart, is available now! 

Now available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

I never thought my first kiss would be on my wedding day.

But here I stand, clutching a bouquet of pale pink roses behind the doors of a Las Vegas chapel, and at the end of the aisle is the absolute last man I imagined would be waiting for me.

Thomas Bane.

Bestselling author. Notorious bad boy. Savagely handsome, dark as sin, chiseled as stone. And somehow, my soon-to-be husband.

Marry him, and I’ll land my dream job. Save him, and I’ll walk away with everything I’ve ever wanted. All I have to do is remember it’s all for show. None of it is real, no matter how real it feels.

But first, I have to survive the kiss.

And with lips like his, I don’t stand a chance.

Review:

You know you are reading a great book when you really can't put it down even when you have something you have to do. That was this book. I am in …

The Naughty Girls Book Club by Sophie Hart

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:
A quaint suburb. A quiet little book club. A very naughty reading list.

When Estelle sets up a book group in order to increase custom to her struggling cafe, what follows is more mind-blowing than she could have ever imagined...

As the first book club meeting flounders, Estelle suggests a spot of erotica to spice things up.

Inspired by their naughty novels, this group of shy suburban readers shake off their inhibitions and soon discover that their own lives can be just as scandalous...


Review:
The Naughty Girls Book Club was an okay read. Light, quick read but didn't really have much to it. So what is it about? Well, Estelle makes a book club to try and get more business to her cafe (she says after the first or second night how it is a boost, how it really is helping, but you are telling me 5 people having a piece of cake and a drink once every other week would make that much of a difference? How expensive are your prices?). So wh…

The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye (Millennium #5) by David Lagercrantz

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

From the author of the #1 international best seller The Girl in the Spider's Web: the new book in the Millennium series, which began with Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, the brilliant hacker, the obstinate outsider, the volatile seeker of justice for herself and others--even she has never been able to uncover the most telling facts of her traumatic childhood, the secrets that might finally, fully explain her to herself. Now, when she sees a chance to uncover them once and for all, she enlists the help of Mikael Blomkvist, the editor of the muckraking, investigative journal Millennium. And she will let nothing stop her--not the Islamists she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the prison gang leader who passes a death sentence on her; not the deadly reach of her long-lost twin sister, Camilla; and not the people who will do anything t…

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web (Millennium #4) by David Lagercrantz

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

She is the girl with the dragon tattoo—a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it . . .

The duo who captivated millions of readers in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest join forces again in this adrenali…

Review: Artemis by Andy Weir

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Review:

Wow, Artemis was so incredibly disappointing. This story annoyed me so much the whole time I was reading it. How did someone who wrote The Martian, a book I loved, loved the humor, loved the science, loved everything, write this? Oh, it was b…

Release Day Review: Raw: Rebirth (RAW Family #3) by Belle Aurora

Image
Now available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:
It had been six years since my world was turned upside down.
He exposed me to the darker side of life and I could never go back to the person I was.
I had been through more things the average person couldn’t even relate to.

If I had the chance to go back and do things differently though?
Not a chance.

I’d pick him a thousand times. A million times. For eternity.

I guess not much has changed.

My name is Alexa Ballentine, and I am still in love with my stalker.


Review:
Who else here saw Raw: Rebirth was coming this year and immediately freaked out because you couldn't wait and wanted it yesterday? I know I did. I saw it pop up on my timeline and was just like must read now!! What a way to start of 2019!
Because it has been a while since I read the prior two books, Raw and Dirty, I spent the last part of 2018 frantically trying to read them so I was ready to go with Raw: Rebirth. I read something beforehand that said you have to rea…

Best of 2018

Image
It is that time of year again - time to reflect on all the amazing books I read this past year. It is always difficult to choose only 20 books, but this year I feel like I cheated more than normal and have more series as I don't know how I am supposed to choose just one of some authors books as my favorite! I am not a favorite person in general, I always have a hard time picking a favorite anything (unless there are only 2 things and one of them is not good). 
This year was interesting in that a lot of my favorite reads were non-romance! If you look at past years there might be one or two that aren't romance, but the majority are. It is great as I love the diversity. I am not sure if I read more non-romance books this year or if I just found better ones, but either way I read a lot of great books! 
Now without further ado my list of top 20 reads in 2018 in no particular order:
