The Year We Hid Away (Review)

The Year We Hid Away (The Ivy Years #2)

Sarina Bowen

Publication date: June 1st 2014

Genres: new adult, romance, college sport

She’s hiding something big. He’s hiding someone small.

Scarlet Crowley’s life was torn apart the day father was arrested for unspeakable crimes. Now the shock has worn off, but not the horror.

It’s a safe bet that Scarlet is the only first year at Harkness College who had to sneak past TV news trucks parked on her front lawn just to leave town. But college will be Scarlet’s fresh start. Clutching a shiny new student ID — with a newly minted name on it — she leaves it all behind. Even if it means lying to the boy she’s falling for.

Bridger McCaulley is a varsity hockey star known for being a player both on and off the ice. But a sobering family crisis takes that all away. Protecting his sister means a precarious living arrangement and constant deception. The only bright spot in his week is the few stolen hours he spends with Scarlet.

The two form a tentative relationship based on the understanding that some things must always be held back. But when grim developments threaten them both, going it alone just won’t work anymore. And if they can’t learn to trust one another now, the families who let them down will take everything they’ve struggled to keep.

Review:

3.5 🌟 🌟 🌟

First read of 2018, it fell into my hands January 1st. I knew this author from her books with Elle Kennedy (Him/Us, WAGs). The Year We Hid Away is the 2nd book in the series, even though I haven’t read the first one I didn’t miss anything. I’m going to divide my review in two:

Romance: both of them share a couple of classes and start going to the library. It’s a very ‘normal or common’ beginning for a relationship. The development it’s a bit fast but with their lives taking over it was to be expected. No big problems about love and relationships.

Drama: way too much. It was the reason I spent half a night reading. Each of them has really serious problems. The book deals with many big topics (Rape, foster care, drugs, death, etc. I don’t want to make spoilers) in just 272 pages.

The main characters are very similar: strong, selfless, don’t like asking for help, with their head over their shoulders.

To sum up, good story that gets lost behind all that drama. I recommend this author, even though this wasn’t one of my favorites Him/Us are such good books and the WAGs series too.

Read,

Bhaltair.

Sonora and the Eye of the Titans

Sonora and the Eye of the Titans
T.S. Hall
Publication date: January 14th 2017
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

The King is dead, and the capital city of Titanis has fallen. The world of Sonora is at war, and the only hope against the onslaught of the Titan army lies with the last royal descendant of Zeus, who is being covertly sheltered on Earth in the secluded mountain town of Sandy, Oregon.

Allora is a shy, intelligent sixteen-year-old, trying to get through the gauntlet of high school while coming to terms with her otherworldly origins. After getting into a fight at soccer tryouts, Allora’s emotions boil over, and her hands suddenly burst into flames. She has harnessed the power of hadrons at the highest level, but at extreme cost. The magical outburst projects an energy signature that is detected by a group of assassins tasked with killing Sonoran rebels.

To survive, Allora, Katie, Dax, and Tanner must find a powerful ancient artifact known as the Eye of the Titans. With the help of a guardian known as Sasquatch, they will have to fight off creatures, solve complex riddles, and navigate magical caverns, all while enduring advanced calculus, jealous girlfriends, and prom.

Review

3.5stars

3, 5 stars
Sonora and the Eye of the Titans is my comeback to Urban Fantasy, it’s been a while since I’ve read a book of this genre.
This book tells the story of 4 young adults and their adventures between two worlds. That’s one of the points I liked the most. It doesn’t tell the story from a totally different world, a different ambient. We see the characters grow as teens and also we see how they know and try to control their abilities.
Also, I’ve connected with Allora and her story how the story develops her character, her personality. How her past story has marked her too.
Besides, the story shows important principles that should be of high value and those are friendship, camaraderie, the importance of family and the fight for the right thing, not for what one wants. That’s a good points for this book.
Keeping on mind my likes in books, I couldn’t give it 4 or more stars because I found something missing or maybe it’s that I’m used to other happenings.
However, I recommend reading this book if you like this genre, but if you’re doubting then this should be a good start.
I found it easy-going and not-to-hard to read (English is not my maternal language), and a book for teens and young/new adults.
This is the first book, there are two more to come, Sonora #2 is coming this May so we don’t have to wait that much to know what happens next.
I’m really thankful for the opportunity to participate in this book tour.

When Stars Come Out

When Stars Come Out
Scarlett St. Clair
Publication date: October 31st 2018
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Anora Silby can see the dead and turn spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secret as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school. After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.

As it turns out, hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girl on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate ends up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, her mother’s unpredictable behavior, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough. Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth–and they want Anora and her powers for themselves.

Surviving Adam Meade by Shannon Klare Review

Surviving Adam Meade
Shannon Klare
(Surviving Adam Meade, #1)
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: August 14th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Seventeen-year-old Claire Collins has a plan: get into college and leave North Carolina behind. What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to get rid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire—Adam Meade, who she can’t even avoid (despite many efforts), because Claire’s dad is the high school football coach.

Seventeen-year-old Adam Meade never fails. He always gets what he wants… until he meets Claire, the new girl who leaves him unnerved, pissed off, and confused. But there’s something about her that he just can’t resist…

With the bite of lemon meringue pie and the sugar of sweet tea, Surviving Adam Meade is a sexy and compelling young adult novel about two strong-willed people who think they know what they want but have no idea what they need.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Review

4 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Surviving Adam Meade is an enemies to lovers story. Claire is forced to change high schools her senior year, starting in a new school leaving behind her entire life. Also, she’s coach’s daughter what leads her to meet Adam. Quarterback, heartbreaker and a bit of an asshole.

Their chemistry is clear, they both prank and attack verbally each other (the use of sarcasm is so good, I loved it). They realised they like each other but are afraid of their future together.

The first part of the book, all the banter and bickering is, for me, the best part of the book. Although it loses its force when they start dating. I expected it to be more passionate. Also, the jumps between scenes inside chapters are to fast. One paragraph you have Claire in class and the next she’s at home, without making a big separation between them. It was weird for me while reading.

Overall, I truly liked it. Both main characters are funny and sort of real-life related. Perfect read for summer.

Author Bio:

Shannon Klare is a southern housewife, born and raised in Texas. When she isn’t writing or daydreaming new plots, Shannon is a reality TV fanatic and movie connoisseur. Surviving Adam Meade is her debut novel.

How To Breathe Underwater by Vicky Steiner Review

How to Breathe Underwater
Vicky Skinner
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: August 14th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Kate’s father has been pressuring her to be perfect for her whole life, pushing her to be the best swimmer she can be. But when Kate finds her dad cheating on her mom, Kate’s perfect world comes crashing down, and Kate is forced to leave home and the swim team she’s been a part of her whole life.

Now in a new home, new school, and faced with the prospect of starting over, Kate isn’t so sure that swimming is what she wants anymore. But when she decides to quit, her whole world seems to fall apart. But when Kate gets to know Michael, the cute boy that lives across the hall, she starts to think that starting over might not be so bad. There’s only one problem: Michael has a girlfriend.

As the pressures of love, family, and success press down on her, can Kate keep her head above water?

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Review

3.75 🌟 🌟 🌟 💫

How To Breathe Underwater tells the story of Kate. It starts with a boom, her father is cheating on her mother and she finds out in the middle of a swimming practice. Her life changes drastically, she has to move to a different city and start again. That’s when she meets Michael, her neighbor and they develop a friendship.

Kate has mixed feelings about everything that’s happening, thinking about every decision she has made. She’s learning to be herself and that’s very authentic and I like when characters are realistic.

The chemistry is easy and fast between Michael and her, they connect like they’ve known each other their whole lives.

The book in itself is good, I’d consider it a fall reading, so perfect for the months ahead, but the drama was easy to spot since the beginning (for myself). I saw what was going to happen when I read the first chapters so later when it happened I wasn’t very surprised. However, you read about a teenager growing up faster than she should be and making mistakes.

I recommend it for those who like to read young adult and romance.

Author Bio:

Born and raised in Texas, I don’t act like much of a Texan. I like cold weather and hate country music. I have a gorgeous husband, two dogs, and a Literature degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. If I’m not at home reading a book or doing laundry, I’m probably at the bookstore, nannying three rambunctious boys, or stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. I’m a reader, a writer, and a bit of a crazy person.

About the Author:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

The Blue Line Duet review

Meghan Quinn’s latest release The Blue Line Duet is a completely different perspective of love.

It’s difficult writing a review without any spoilers so the first couple paragraphs are gonna be a short description with links attached to the cover reveal of both books.

Review:

Five 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

The Upside of Falling (The Blue Line Duet #1) shows love as an instant connection. It’s fast and intense with the perfect touch of drama.

The Downside of Love (The Blue Line Duet #2) shows a more grown up love, a mature one. It represents a love that could last a lifetime.


Spoiler Review

There are three main characters:

Rory: female character, outgoing, positive, charming, strong with a very real perspective of her plans in life.

Colby: male character, closed off, quiet and very focused. His dreams are clear and he’s completely focus on making them a reality.

Stryder: male character, funny, extrovert but with a dark side that pulls him down and prevents him from becoming who he desires to be.

The first book, The Upside of Falling, tells the love story of Colby and Rory. They connect since the first moment they look at each other. At first, Colby wants nothing to do with Rory but her perseverance gets through him. They exchange letters and it’s so lovely 😍. However, there’s not a happy ending for them. Colby’s dream of becoming a fighter pilot gets in the way, and although he thinks of leaving that behind because her, Rory doesn’t let him, knowing making his dream come true is more important and if he denied that he’d regret it later.

The second book (The Downside of Love) is the love story of Stryder and Colby. Stryder and Colby are best friends, they’ve been together since first day of Air Force Academy. However, Stryder didn’t make it so he couldn’t become a fighter pilot. That puts him in a bad position, drinking problems, solitude, distancing himself from everybody, Colby above all of them. Rory and Ryan (Rory’s best friend) found Stryder and help him, letting him sleep at their houses commuting. Rory and Stryder start to develop a friendship, even though Stryder has always been in love with Rory she starts feeling something when she gets to know him. It’s a love develop through good and bad times. And when Colby knows about their relationship, OMG, new side of him completely different. However, Rory and Stryder get a happy ending. You can see a more mature love but also a friendship.

Also, we’re getting a third instalment The Left Side of Perfect. After finishing this duet you’ll be left in love but also heartbreaking. Everybody deserves a happy ending. So Colby you’re next 😉.

Through both books I was hooked from the beginning. The first one was a more classical romance book, but the second one was a complete puzzle that I had to build. Always wondering how it would end. So worth reading.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

The Downside of Love is Live

The second instalment in the Blue Line Duet is live right now.

I finished The Upside of Falling last night and I started The Downside of Love this morning. The first book was 🙈 I couldn’t wait to read the second one. Thank Meghan Quinn for releasing this book earlier. She has become one of my favourite authors.

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved.

This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would.

This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself.

No, this is my story.

A story about sacrifice.

A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl.

A story I wish I never had to tell.

This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

Cry Baby (Review)

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott
A Contemporary Young Adult Romance
Release day: June 22, 2018
Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2rjlag4Purchase here–>

“Cry Baby is brilliantly written. It’s hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking and will leave you thinking about it for days afterward. Bravo, Ms. Scott. This boy-man stole my heart and I don’t want it back.”- L.J. Shen, Bestselling Author

Blurb:

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.
He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.
He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.
Loyal.
Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.
Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him
sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.
He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.
He was falling in love.
And it was going to tear him apart.

Review:

4 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

I’m always waiting for her books, they never disappoint. Since I first read How We Deal With Gravity I was hooked in her way of writing.
Cry Baby is just one of her masterpieces. The message and the topics are on point right now. The main characters have great chemistry and I really liked their personalities.
Riley is so headstrong, independent and fierce, you just end up loving her when you get to see her soft, sensible side.
Tristan is just too cute. He follows his own ideals and is very loyal to them, that something admirable in someone and that I value.
Like in the rest of Ginger Scott’s books there’s more to the story than just the relationship between the main characters. I admire her braveness to write about these topics and how she is able to accomplish it in a real way. I feel this could actually happen.
Also, how young people is represented, their personalities, how they behave is how I feel it should be. They’re almost adults and their way of thinking is in constant change, however their values and loyalty are always the same, that’s admirable, it takes real courage.
So go read it NOW.

When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
