Thank you, Next Book Tag!

Hey Nerdy Peeps! I’M BACK!!! It’s been a while and I am so sorry I have been absent. Let me just tell you that mental health issues suck! I have been in the worst funk ever, but slowly but surely I am getting back on track! Anyway, let’s get to today’s post! That’s right I found a new book tag that goes along with Ariana Grande’s new song Thank You, Next! 

I found the tag through Peace Love Books on youtube! Thank You Next Book Tag


Thank You, Next Book Tag!

Name a book that you said “thank you, next” to i.e. DNF’d (did not finish)

The only book I never finished was Thirteen Reasons Why… This book was just way too much for my mental health and I couldn’t do that to myself. 

You can answer the next three together or separate 🙂

Name a book that taught you love

Instructions for a Secondhand Heart by Tamsyn Murray

This book has all the feels and I couldn’t love it more than I already do! 

Name a book that taught you patience

I actually just finished the perfect book for this! 
It would have to be Stay a Little Longer by Jess Bryant

Trent was outed before he was ready.
Lance was in the closet for good.
When these two met sparks flew.
They both had to be patient with the others feelings.
Especially Trent since Lance wasn’t ready to come out.

Name a book that taught you pain

I feel like this might be everyone’s answer but this one would definitely be The Fault in Our Stars! Oh boy, this book will make you cry all of the tears! 

Name a book that you loved at the time of reading but in hindsight, you do not like it as much anymore, but which you still learned some other quality from

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
At the time I loved this book but not so much anymore, but I still keep the “no matter what always be you” mentality this book taught me! 

Name a book you’re currently talking to, i.e. have the hots for

The Devil by Ashley Jade
Oh, holy hotness! This book is wow! 

Name a book that gon’ last – the book of you – the book that helped you love yourself a little bit more

Book Review A Love So Sweet by Addison Cole

book review a love so sweet by addison cole

NEW RELEASE…….. 
Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling.

A Love So Sweet is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you’d expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you’re looking for a spicier romance, pick up the steamy edition, Lovers at Heart, Reimagined, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name. 


In A Love So Sweet…

Treat Braden wasn’t looking for love when Max Armstrong walked into his Nassau resort, but he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield to the sweet, sensual woman beneath. One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.

A chance encounter brings Treat and Max together again, and it turns into a night of intense passion and honesty. When Max reveals her secret, painful past, Treat vows to do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—including helping her finally face her demons head-on.

My Review

Oh my goodness! This is a great start to a beautiful new series! I can’t say it enough about how much I love Addison Cole’s books! 

This one was an absolute treat (Pun intended). I loved watching Treat and Max’s relationship unfold they were so cute! But Max wasn’t always there after one night of sparks she runs. So, Treat gave up, which in my opinion was dumb. You should never give up on someone you love. 

When Treat decides to move on back on his family’s ranch. Well, another encounter between the two sparks passion all over again and I couldn’t get enough! These two will give you a run for your money but once they finally stay together you will love every minute of it!

After ditching a troubled relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is…until her horse is injured and the son of the man her father has been feuding with for more than forty years comes to her rescue. She’s spent forever trying to deny her attraction to headstrong, too-handsome-for-his-own-good cowboy Rex Braden. The last thing she needs is that particular man complicating her life.

Fiercely loyal Rex Braden has never put anyone or anything before his family. Despite the irate family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, unleashing fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love—and causing the rebel in each of them to rear its powerful head.

Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained as Rex and Jade find out if true love really can conquer all.

Deadly Love is Finally Here

Hey Nerdy Peeps! It’s here! Deadly Love is finally here! My book baby is live and it’s here! This is a huge dream come true and I am so excited! 

Deadly Love is Finally Here


Deadly Love is Finally Here

Lexi Madison wasn’t the girl she used to be in Detroit. She did her best to leave her past where it belonged in the past. That even meant leaving the man she shot there. There was no way she was going to marry her father’s drug dealer’s son, even if she knew him.

Derek never wanted to live in his father’s footsteps, but he knew he wanted Lexi, even if it meant tricking her. The only thing he didn’t see happening was being shot by the one woman he loved. They may have been best friends, but now he was pissed.

Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne Book Review

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Sit back for this one because it was not what I expected! Seriously though I could not put this book down and I can’t wait to share this review with you. Here is Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne Book Review!


angelica stone by susi osborne book review

Angelica Stone

Following years of sexual abuse, Angelica is brought up in care. As a teenager, she absconds, living on the streets, before eventually being forced into prostitution to survive. She learns to rely solely on herself and is reluctant to allow anyone to get close to her until she forms an unlikely bond with Lola. In contrast, Lola is from what appears to be a happy middle-class background – but all is not what it seems…

Slowly, as their friendship grows, cracks start to appear in Lola’s life, and a series of events leave her on the verge of ruin. Can these women break the cycle of their lives? Or will they succumb to the path laid out before them? Angelica Stone is an emotional rollercoaster of laughter and tears as the women embark on a journey of self-discovery, with the support of one another.

My Review

First, let me start by saying this book may have some trigger warnings for anyone who has dealt with sexual abuse. 

angelica stone by susi osborne book review

So, after reading the blurb for this book I was all in for a good friendship between two women who help each other through their healing process, but I was wrong. This book was a lot darker than I thought it would be, but that’s what kept me hooked. Susi did an amazing job of making the scenes job off the page. Angelica and Lola’s relationship was a perfect friendship they built each other up and you get to see Angelica from Lola’s perspective. From there you see how different their lives are, but also how that makes their friendship stronger. 

I love how Susi intertwined the laughs with the dark. It made the dark more bearable to read. So, don’t be fooled by the blurb, just pick the book up and read it. You won’t be disappointed. 

Author Bio – Susi Osborne is the author of The Ripples of Life, Grace & Disgrace, Secrets, Lies & Butterflies and Angelica Stone. She lives in Cheshire with her Scottish husband, her actress daughter, and their two mischievous little dogs. Susi also has an adult son and a grandson who live nearby. Amongst friends, their house is known affectionately (she hopes!) as the Osborne madhouse, for obvious reasons.

Before she became a writer, Susi worked in libraries for many years. She also worked as a classroom assistant in a junior school. In addition to her writing, Susi organizes Northwich LitFest, which she has been running for the past seven years. Alongside the writing of her latest book, Angelica Stone, Susi has been raising money for Centrepoint, the charity for youth homelessness, and has set up a Just Giving Page for the charity in her name.

Susi is a firm believer in the fact that it’s never too late to do anything. ‘You only have one life – go out and grab it with both hands!’

In Pieces by Christa Lynn Book Review

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Here’s another review and this one is a good one. I loved this book and I know you will too! 


Blurb

When Hope Becomes a Memory

Jo:

Thirteen years ago, I was ripped from my home and forced into servitude. My life was torn into pieces and became a living hell. Then, I was suddenly released into a different type of hell. A hell that knows no boundaries, that cares about no one. 
I will not trust anyone, I will not believe in anyone and I will not give in to anyone. 
I’m a survivor, and this hell, I will survive.

Kane:

The world changed thirteen years ago. My life, as well as everyone else’s, was turned upside down. While others pillaged for food and water, I pillaged for weapons and books. If the Heretics want to take over the world, then I’ll lead the Mercenaries to battle for our country. 
I will not surrender, I will not bow down and I will not break. 

Kane refuses to let Jo sacrifice herself to find her family and he will do whatever necessary to put her pieces back together. 
Will she learn to trust again?
WIll she learn to put the power into Kane’s hands?
Or are there too many pieces to put back together?

in pieces by christa lynn book review


Book Review

Now, dystopian is not my usual cup of sweet tea, but this book was everything I could love in a book. It was a complete page turner and I couldn’t put it down. Just be warned that in this book there is some abuse. The women are kept as prisoners for sex and reproduction.

That being said when Jo could no longer have babies they threw her out into the dark and scary world. She found herself in a situation where thankfully she was saved by Kane. By the way, I love a good boy who saves the damsel in distress. I also love the bad boy tendencies Kane has. 

Their love story was a beautiful one and the friendship that Lynn throws in with the other woman who went through the same Hell was amazing and totally made the story. 

You definitely want to give this book a shot! You won’t be disappointed!
