Fall From India Place by Samantha Young

When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him, a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again...

It seemed like just yesterday when I started reading the first book of this series and I can still remember reading Hannah in that book. She was a young teen then and it's still a bit hard for me to accept that she had already grown and having relations with a man! Hahaha. I'm such a mama with these characters.

I was rooting for this duo when I first read about them as teenagers in the previous book in the series. I did all that but never expected they would eventually have their own book. And what a book it is. Wow.

I didn't know that the teenage love between Hannah and Marco that I read then would forever change their lives. I really felt for what Hannah went through as a young lady. It couldn't have been easy and for her to try to trust again the same person that nearly destroyed her life was probably one of the hardest things she could've decided to do.

I thought it was kind of unfair realizing that Marco had moved since they had broken up. I thought his current situation was a bit convenient for what was going on in Hannah's life. But then I got THAT ending. No such thing as convenient now as these two are determined to drum up their own happy ending, no matter what.

It was beautiful to read about people who love each other enough to learn to accept the past, no matter how painful. And then move on from there knowing that trust, although hard to come by, will be the catalyst to keep a relationship together. 

Final verdict: 8/10. Great read.

Tangled by Emma Chase

Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multi-million dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? 

He’ll tell you he has the flu.

But we all know that’s not really true.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything - or anyone - derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating. 

Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life? 

Can Drew Evans win at love? 

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.

I don't know what took me so long to finally come around to this book...which had been in my reader for sometime. Like last year sometime. I am an idiot, I guess. Of many kinds.

But I finally got around to it and boom! It was sooo gooooood. It was quirky, funny, and romantic. All the characters in the book were well written and geez, I had the giggles almost the entire time I was reading this. I still can't decide who my most favorite character is though right at this moment Mackenzie is leading the pack. I mean, what's not to love about an awesome kid who has her beloved uncle wrapped around her little finger, right?

Although I liked Drew and Kate's chemistry together, it was/ they were actually reminiscent of BB. Well, that was just me. For me, that pretty much took some points off of my enjoyment of it even if I didn't exactly compare both. It just felt like I already read the book. 

Nevertheless, I adore EC's writing style which is nothing but topnotch. Never remind me though how I left this book in my TBR pile for so long. I have indeed been a fool of all kinds.

Final verdict: 8/10. Great read.

Series Recommendation #13: The Wild Side by RK Lilley

If you have not started this series yet (although I wouldn't understand why you haven't yet), please, please do. It's imperative that you do.

The entire series seriously got me mind-blown. Well, RKL's books alwasy have that effect on me but this one? It had some serious stuff going on that my head was all over. What the hell. I was constantly going on what, what, what mode and I really thought all the mystery was going to get the better of me.

So I managed to hold in my frustrations (barely) and after the second book, I gave a shot at guessing one of the twists and I actually managed to be correct. But that ending though. Boy, oh, boy. As I said, mind-blown.

I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it's always been.

Until I saw that filthy tweet.

@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue. #ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff

"FilthyBlueBird" thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn't be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She's wrong.

Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it's about to

What did I say about serials, huh? But what the heck, just look at this book though. I can't say no to that cover or that blurb. It's going to be ridiculously fun reading this series, I can tell.

I didn't know I wanted a story like this until I came across it. Ahh, the possibilities of this story could be endless. Reading the blurb really gave me the giggles...but only in the best of ways.

This read was loads of fun and sexy. Seriously, what is not sexy about Vaughn Asher? Eeeeeep!!! Unexpectedly, I find that Grace was more than what I initially thought her to be. She may be able to dirty tweet a Hollywood god but her character turned to be one that wasn't a dumb pushover, one that could actually think for herself. She was strong enough to say no when her fantasy man was offered to her on a platter. Good God, woman, what were you thinking? Seriously though, I think I love her.

Needless to say, I enjoyed reading this novella. I loved the chemistry between Asher and Grace. I loved how the sexy and fun are just right in between these pages. Needless to say, JAH just earned another fan in me.

And that cliffhanger ending? Absolutely brilliant!

Final verdict: 8/10. Good read.
