Title: Naked or Dead
Author: AE Murphy
Okay, so this was my first book by this author and I absolutely loved it.
I thought I knew what I was getting, I thought this was another high school romance book. There is something a little off about this romance. It’s totally not *just another* high school romance! Its romance with a twist!
A twist that I didn’t see coming, another twist that I wasnt sure on and then every question was answered. The characters were great, the connection was hot hot hot! I thought the story was fab, dark romantic suspense is totally my corner!
I cant say too much for fear of ruining the surprise but this is really well done and totally worth a read!
Title: Bad Boys
Author: Max Henry
This is the second in The Arcadia High Series, you need to read Good Girls first as this continues straight on.
Another fantastic installment in this series leaving me waiting for more once again!
I love how steady this story is. There’s no rush to get to the end, although the story is gripping and keeps you moving throughout. You certainly want to get to the end but it’s not a race to finish.
I love Lacey in this book. Shes a little sassier than in Good Girls and while I thought she was finding her feet again, maybe not 😂 I’ve definitely been channeling my inner Lacey this week!
Tuck is, well, Tuck is absolutely swoon worthy! He’s perfect, in an imperfect teenage kind of a way. He is kind, sweet, he takes charge and takes action. I also like that hes a bit of a trouble maker and he’s not about to back down from a challenge.
There are some really great secondary characters coming through in this book. I already loved Mags but Greer is coming on and I’m even warming to Johnson and Beau.
That end though, OMG that end. Why, Max, oh why must you do this to me! Now to patiently, not so patiently, wait for book 3!
Title: Fighting for the Forbidden
Author: Tracy Lorraine
This is the third in the Forbidden series.
What a fantastic finale to this little series. I love the connection between Ben and Lauren, the push and pull is almost tangible.
I liked the inclusion of his friends and being able to spend time in Devon, along with all the cards on the table and the sorting out at home. It was good to see a little, not too much, of the original BJ and his friends are perfect!
A fab four star read, definitely something easy for sitting on the sun lounger or curling up with on the sofa.
Title: Revenge at Raleigh High
Author: Callie Hart
This is the second book in the Raleigh High series. You do need to read The Rebel of Raleigh High first.
This can not be the end. There absolutely needs to be more from this series! Jam packed full of action, I hope you’re not squeamish because this book goes there!
Oh my gosh, there is so much more in this book that I can possibly tell you. It absolutely was not what I was expecting after the end of the first book but it’s another fantastic installment!
The suspense, the drama, the heat. Oh boy do I need my own Alex Moretti. Man, I’m sorry this review is rubbish because I really don’t want to spoil it but read it. It was fabulous!
Title: Tears of Glass
Author: Anna Bloom
This is the second of a trilogy of books, you need to read Tears of Ink before this one.
Holy mother of ****. What an ending! I love this series.
Eli and Elijah are starting to meld. We’ve seen lots of Eli in this book and he is absolutely fantastic, totally swoon worthy!
This last book is going to be a kicker I can tell!
Faith is flighty, I thought she’d have stuck it out a little more. I thought she’d have given her dad more consideration than she did.
I’d love to see more into Lewis and Tab in the future. It’s totally not over yet though, I cant see Connie taking this all lying down. I cant wait, I’m going in to the final book!
Author: Lilianna Anderson
There were quite a few things in this book that are familiar and remind me of another story, I just can’t quite place them.
What a whirlwind of a book; she’s up, she’s down, she’s off around the world on the arm of a hot lead. Wow.
I downloaded this book on the back of a very hot teaser and the chemistry is certainly there, both in the teaser and the book.
I just dont know what I can say without ruining it for everyone. I guessed what was going on with goth boy pretty quickly, and what had happened that night, I also called the final outcome.
I liked the story, I liked the pacing, I’d like to see what happens in the next one. Although I appreciate they are standalone, they’re obviously interconnected. I don’t like the extra mini book in the back but that’s just me and I found some sections a little predictable.
Naomi is very calm, gentle and forgiving. I would have liked her bestie Steph to have been more involved with her, maybe we could have had some more depth or a different perspective that way?
Marcus is a hot head, hes the cocky front man of a band so I guess that’s to be expected really. I feel like he got a tough deal in this one!
Theo was something else. Its left me a bit blank. I liked the story, I liked the characters but it hasn’t gripped me, a four star read for me.
Title: Tears of Ink
Author: Anna Bloom
This is the first in a trilogy series.
I’m so glad I waited until all the books were out, what an ending!
This book grabs you at the first page and drags you the way through to the last one. It gripping and suspenseful.
Faith is lost, but not lost. Shes confident but insecure, shes everything you and and would want to be at the same time. All those insecurities we hide are written on his skin for the world to see and yet hidden from sight. Shes an enigma.
Elijah, oh Elijah. Trapped in the world of the elite, what have you done? I mean, what have you done?
This is scorching hot and searing cold, back and forth, yes and no. This has all the pull and drama of an enemies to lovers tale but not. With some fantastic side characters I’m hoping we might get to know in further books.
I cant write any more without ruining the whole thing so I’m heading in to book 2!
