Wrap-Ups

A Wrap-Up of April & May

Hello loves!

I know these past couple months I have seriously been failing at this whole blogging thing. I know, I know…it isn’t like I have been totally MIA, but I have been more active on Twitter than actually blogging. But alas my goal is to get back to it. I have read a TON of good books lately and I am planning on having some great reviews coming your way! It is already the 4th of June, so I know this is coming to you late but I always enjoy doing my  monthly wrap-up posts. I think it is a good way to showcase all the good reads I enjoyed the month before. I didn’t post an April wrap up so technically its possible some of these books were actually read then. Really, I am so bad at keeping it all separated, all my days just flow together and it is hard to tell them all apart (thats why they created the amazing Goodreads to keep track for you!!). I guess that is what happens when you adult and you are working all the time. This wrap-up will strictly be that books I have read, not a whole lot happened on the blog so there isn’t really anything to wrap. But without further waiting lets get to it. Untitled design (3)

APRIL

 

I think that is all that I read in April…It was a slower reading month for me for sure, I had a lot of things I was doing which didn’t leave a ton of time for reading.

MAY

 

As you can see I read quite a few more books in May…but still managed not to have many posts on the blog. I do plan to posts reviews for most of these books. So be on the lookout!!

Untitled design (3)

So there you have it! That’s what I have been reading lately. What do you guys think of my readings these past 2 months? Have you read any of these? Have any thoughts? Let’s chat! And as always feel free to link up your wrap-up posts below! I would love to see what everyone if reading!

Until next time…

WWW Wednesday | May 17th

Hey guys! Hope everyone’s week is going well! It is Wednesday again…on a side note, if time could seriously just stop for a hot second so that I could get caught up that would be great! I am finally getting back into my reading, it is so nice. In the month of April I think I read a total of maybe 5 books tops. This week alone I have read like 4, so I’m finally getting some good reading time in, which means more review posts are coming your way.

So seeing as I had a stellar reading week lets get caught up on what I read.

The Wright Boss by K.A. Linde | Review Blitz

 

TWBoss iBooksA new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

 

 

 

 

Review

The Wright Boss is the second “Wright” book, and while still considered as a standalone, I do feel that it could be considered a series. The first one is Jensen and Emery’s story titled The Wright Brother, and you can find my review for it here.

Damn them Wright brothers though!!! Like seriously where is mine?? Can I please have one cause they are F-I-N-E.

giphy (4)

 

So, The Wright Boss is the story of Landon and Heidi. Landon, is a professional golfer who is dealing with a career changing injury, and also struggling within his marriage. Heidi is Emery’s best friend and an employee of Wright Construction, a job that is the number one thing in her life. Heidi and Landon’s “thing” started up prior to this book, so they already had some flames flying. However, Landon was trying to make things work with his wife, so he cooled things off. But Heidi and Landon just can’t seem to stay away from each other, and once Landon realizes that his wife is not who he think she is, all he seems to want is Heidi. The Wright Boss is a slow burning, friends-to-lovers book that also adds in the element of an office relationship.

Now, as I said I LOVE me some Wright men. K.A. Linde sure knows how to make em! I really did enjoy this book. It was fun, sexy as hell and most definitely a slow ride as far as relationship development. I felt that Heidi and Landon took their time getting to the relationship point, but it was a good development. The progression of their relationship was perfectly timed to their story and the things happening. However, it was one of those where it was one step forward five steps back kinda thing. I don’t think it deterred me though, it never got to the point where it got on my nerves.

Both of the MC’s in this are dealing with some problematic life issues. The contribution of both Heidi’s and Landon’s issues outside of the relationship really added a layer to this book. It gave it a depth that I think it truly needed, especially to set it apart from the sea of romance novels. We get to journey through the MC’s growth and development throughout the story, and it was so fun to get to see.

*****WARNING*****

*******Spoilers Ahead*******

Now, there is one major issue I can see readers having with this book. While I myself didn’t necessarily have a problem with it, I did see some people mentioning it. Timing. In this one we do get some time jumps, considering it is a slower paced evolvement and the face that Linde chose good parts to break, I could care about that. However, the entire story dose take place while Landon is still technically married. Now, like I said I didn’t really even think twice about this as he was in the process of getting divorced, however, I can seem some people getting upset about that. So if that is going to bother you, then I advise against picking this one up.

******END SPOILERS******

Overall I greatly enjoyed The Wright Boss, and I am looking forward to the next book from the Wright family, The Wright Mistake which is coming the beginning of August, I believe. I would highly recommend this book if you enjoy a friends-to-lovers book, or just a really steamy slow climb!!

Overall Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Revelry By Kandi Steiner | Book Blast With Review

Revelry, an all-new standalone from Kandi Steiner is available now!!!

Revelry Cover_FINAL.png

From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

Available Now Square-01

Review:

 

“Sometimes we get so far down a path because we want nothing more than for it to be the right one, but the truth of the matter is we can’t force it to be.”

 

Let me start out by saying that I love Kandi Steiner, I am a HUGE fan of A Love Letter To Whiskey, so naturally I was super excited to read this book. Not only that…that blurb? That cover? How could you not want to pick this one up? I mean seriously! Steiner is know for playing your heartstrings like a musical instrument, and Revelry was no different. Revelry is the story of two broken souls coming together to mend each other. Wren is a newly divorced city girl, who has lost not only her husband but also herself and her inspiration. Anderson is still struggling to heal from a tragedy that occurred 7 years ago. These two are such a broken pair, but that is what makes their story so beautiful. Revelry pulled on all the heartstrings…as well as maybe touched a little close to home. I am also someone who is struggling to find herself in this crazy chaotic world. The love that unfolds between Wren and Anderson while Wren’s summer is spent in the small cabin town, is truly magical.

There are some romances you read because they are steamy and sexy, and there are some romances you read that change your life and way of thinking. Revelry was the later. Now don’t get me wrong Revelry had all he benefits of a sexy romance as well, but the story of Wren and Anderson finding each other and themselves was an experience to hold dear, and it is about so much more than just the physical connection.

“So fall apart. Cry, throw things, remember the good times and the bad and then let them go. And before you close your eyes, each and every night, forgive yourself.”

Wren is such a strong female character. Yes, she may be struggling with the aftermath of a divorce and navigating her life. Yes, she may be completely lost in life. But in all honesty that is what makes her so strong. The fact that she had the strength to walk away and choose what was best for her, even in a moment that may have been calling her a different way. She is real and true, and very seldom do I come across characters that I can see so much of myself in.

Anderson…oh, my Anderson. He has been dealing with grief for so long that he doesn’t even know how to live life without it. He is just on auto-pilot going through the motions of each day. His character is written so incredibly well. You feel all of his pain and struggle…ever.single.bit. And all you want is for him to escape the shell he has locked himself in.

Not very often do I bring up supporting characters in reviews, mainly because I feel that they are just that supporting characters. However, the supporting cast in Revelry was anything but. Momma Von, Ron, Yvette, Julie. They were all stories of their own, they had each presented a different love relationship through their story. I fell in love with each supporting character as much as the MC’s. It brought the book together so well and you really are emotionally involved with each characters story.

“I wasn’t broken, though I had been bent and bruised.”

Revelry pulled on every possible heartstring I have. It was an emotional ride. Steiner did such a phenomenal job with the story and the writing. I seriously give her props! Not many books have the ability to leave such a mark on my heart, but she has managed to do so twice, and for that alone she deserves an award. If you haven’t picked this one up to read, then seriously you need to. No matter where you are in life, there is something to connect and learn from with in this story. Really though, this needs to be added to your TBR, even if you aren’t a romance junkie like me.

Overall rating 5/5 stars

About the Author:

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.

Kandi 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 die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn’t working or 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 beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.

Cover Reveals

Paper Fools by Staci Hart | COVER REVEAL

SBPRBanner-Paperfools-CR.jpg

In the game of love, she never loses.

Paper Fools by Staci Hart is coming April 17th!!

cover-wrap-pf

Title: Paper Fools

Author: Staci Hart

Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry

Publication Date: April 17th

Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess.

Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match.

Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her.

It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart.

Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk.

The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice.

If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses.

*Formerly titled Deer in Headlights, Paper Fools has been rewritten and reedited just for you.*

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
