Famous last words. Or maybe they would end up being the beginning.

When your best friend hacks into your Instagram and posts a call for applications for a fake boyfriend, do you leave it up or delete and hide forever?

I couldn't decide. Then my old crush called me. My new crush asked me out. My messages filled up with guys wanting to be my fake boyfriend. What would you have done?

If you enjoy second chance sweet teen romances with heart warming family issues and a side order of fake dates, this is your book. Get your copy now. Look for other titles from this author coming soon.


My Review:

Fake Boyfriend Wanted was a fun and easy YA read! I love that it is clean, so if you are worried about what your teenager reads, it is all above board. Ava's story was a great emotional teenage ride! I mean, you cannot make up your best friend posting on your own Insta account that you want a fake boyfriend for the holidays! It was unbelievable! I wondered what I would have done if I were in the same situation. It was a total roller coaster ride! Watching Ava's metamorphosis was fun and seeing her come to her own realizations about life, friends, and love was a wonderful thing. If you want a fun YA read, this is the book for you! I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Happy Reading!!!

The Duke Meets His Match by Karen Tuft, Blog Tour & Giveaway!

 



Book Summary:

At thirty years of age, Susan Jennings has long been considered a spinster. Exceptionally intelligent, she has little tolerance for London and the dreaded Season—if that’s how one is expected to find love, it’s not for her. But when an invitation arrives that cannot be ignored, Susan leaves her comfortable life in the country and enters the fashion and frivolity she most despises. She quickly discovers, however, that there is more to loathe in London—and his name is George Kendall.

George, Duke of Aylesham, has learned to keep his distance from cloying females chasing the title of duchess. Susan Jennings, however, proves an entirely different challenge—a woman who has pushed him to the limit of his patience with their every encounter. But their simmering hostility is disrupted by a thoughtless slip-up: to avoid a marriage of political strategy, George claims he is already betrothed. And when pressed for the name of the lucky woman, only one name comes to mind: Susan’s. Their forced betrothal proves advantageous, but when their verbal sparring must change in order to be convincing, the line between fact and fiction becomes blurred by something neither expected: love.


My Review:

This book was amazing and fun! Tuft beautifully weaves together a world of two very different people. I loved how she alternated between both characters' point of view. Susan is intelligent and witty, out to impress no one as she considers herself too old to marry. Her quick wit left a lasting impression and sparks and fire flew between her and Aylesham. Sometimes it was hard to tell if it was romantic sparks or fiery darts of anger! I could not believe the scrape Aylesham put them both into and I wasn't sure how in the world he could convince Susan to go along with his plan. I cannot forget Lady Walmsley, she must be mentioned, she is one of the best characters quite literally! The Duke Meets His Match is definitely a must read for regency era fans!

The Captain's Christmas Promise by Julie Coulter Bellon, Book Review

 


Book Summary:

A Christmas they won't forget . . .

After spending every waking moment hunting the world’s most wanted terrorist, Colt Mitchell and Brenna Wilson decide to take a break and go home for the Christmas holidays. The minute they touch down on Canadian soil, however, they are pulled into an international conspiracy that would leave the son of a Kuwaiti diplomat dead. Colt and Brenna finally locate the target, but a contract killer is hot on their trail. Retreating to the Canadian wilderness to keep everyone safe, they'll need all their skills---and maybe a Christmas miracle---to make it out alive.


My Review:

I really loved this fast-paced novella about Colt and Brenna's trip home for Christmas. It was everything I love from Bellon's writing, action-packed, unexpected turns, and a little bit of romance sprinkled in. My one and only complaint is that it ended way too soon...I want more! If you like action/suspense books, then this Christmas novella is just the gift to give yourself!

Happy Reading!!!

Wrong Train to Paris by Jennifer Moore, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!



Book Summary:

At nineteen years of age, Julia Weston fancies herself a capable woman, far too old to require a traveling companion. But at the insistence of her overprotective father, Julia finds herself aboard the Orient Express in the care of an approved escort. In an ill-advised demonstration of independence, Julia leaves the train on a quick errand and then re-boards and sleeps away her exhaustion. Upon awakening, however, she realizes her plan went terribly awry: she boarded the wrong train and is now stranded alone in the French countryside of Provence.

Now she must rely on the help of Luc Paquet, a young French farmer who offers her accommodations with his aunt while Julia awaits the next train to Paris in five days’ time. As she settles into the rhythms of the household alongside Luc and his aunt, Julia learns more than she ever dreamed she would about France, farm life, and her handsome rescuer. There is more to Luc than meets the eye, and their chemistry is undeniable. But Julia and Luc are from different worlds, and all too soon, the train will bear Julia back to a life that suddenly feels incomplete.



My Review:

I loved the Orient Express but what I loved more was Julia, Luc, the Riv, and the goats! I wasn't sure what was going to happen to Julia once she got off the train in the middle of nowhere. But her adventure started off with a bang and some rain. I fell in love with the countryside of France, the simplicity of life, and the down to earth goodness of Luc. I loved how Julia kept getting herself into scrapes and it made me laugh out loud and smile at the authentic feeling of her character. The entire goat escapade was my favorite. Wrong Train to Paris made me laugh, smile, and swoon all in one book! It is easy to read and was just the right pick me up romance that I needed.


Happy Reading!!!

Bound in the Shallows by Stephanie Black, Blog Tour & Giveaway!



Book Summary:

It’s the week before her wedding, and Natalie Marsh
doesn’t have a moment to spare. But when a potential
donor requests a meeting regarding Natalie’s mental
health clinic, the soon-to-be-bride makes time for the
conversation—especially since that donor is tied to a
tragedy in the life of Natalie’s fiancĂ©, Gideon: eight years
ago, Gideon’s roommate Travis died of a drug overdose.

Now Travis’s mother wants to honor his memory by
helping others avoid the same fate. It is a noble request
that soon turns into a nightmare.
As wedding celebrations ensue, old friends renew
acquaintances. But what begins as a party of wedding
guests becomes a cast of suspects when the discovery of
a bloodstained knife puts them all under the spotlight.
Things are taking a deadly turn, leading Natalie and
Gideon to a horrifying realization: all those years ago,
Travis didn’t overdose—he was murdered. And his killer
is willing to take deadly action to silence anyone who
suspects the truth.


My Review:

Black has done it again and whisked me away into Natalie's world! She always seems to be involved in some type of dangerous situations. Full of suspense and danger, I was on the edge of my seat the entire book! Black writes a masterful suspense and mystery story, as a reader I had no idea who was the enemy until it was revealed. Expertly told and skillfully written, Bound in the Shallows is a must-read!
