THE THING ABOUT LOVE: Is a sexy emotional standalone novel by Kim Karr. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Jules & Jack 

This story wasn’t just about love, it was about surviving even when the odds are stacked against you. 

In this we meet quirky wedding planner Jules and sexy hot delectable Dr Jake Kissinger (aka Dr. Kiss), these two meet in such an unconventional way which set up for a funny hilarious first meeting which didn’t really go to plan when Jules strives to make a first impression to potential new clients.

Jules is hired to organise Jake’s sister’s wedding after a rough start with the delectable hot doctor if that wasn’t bad enough they have been paired up to bring the wedding of the century fit for a Queen. 

From the day I met him we were hard and soft, up and down. Both good and bad. Gentle and Rough. 

So many obstacles are out to trip them up, she vowed she would never become attracted to such a pompous ass (famous last words) and he is sworn off love. 

Once the wedding is done and dusted Jake is chasing his new adventure in a new city that has been mapped out for him since his younger years of following in his late father's footsteps working in the trauma unit at one of New York's finest hospitals. 

We’re also introduced to Jules’s cousin who takes part in bare knuckled underground fights without protection, choke holds, groin attacks, with the only rule being that there were no rules. And a past love of Jules’s which I hope we get more of a glimpse into these two secondary characters.

This was a super cute, sugary sweet, sexy as sin read, I giggled, I swooned, I sighed my heart turned to mush, once I started reading this I couldn't put it down, for me it was a unique enjoyable read that I highly recommend.

♕ REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ INSEPARABLE BY SIOBHAN DAVIS


Title: Inseparable
Author: Siobhan Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication: January 8th, 2018
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

INSEPARABLE: This is a gritty, angsty, friends-to-lovers standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis. Each character have their own POV in this book. 

This review will be as spoiler free as I can possibly make it because this book deserves to be read as it should be, go in prepared to have your world turned upside down, the highs and lows, the drama, first love and so much more will come at you at full speed, you will not want to put this down once you start it!! 

The book is split up into three parts:
(Part One) Senior Year of High School`14
(Part Two) Freshman Year of College 
(Part Three) Almost 5 Years later 

This was a first time read for me by this author but after taking the plunge and jumping on this it won’t be the last, if your wanting an angst filled, emotional rollercoaster of epic proportions then look no further than this book = Inseparable. 

It all started with the two boys next door, Devin and Ayden add Angelina to the mix and you have the three Musketeers the three of them have been inseparable childhood friends since the age of two years old and had such a strong undeniable bond that oozed off the pages. 

We thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us...But we were wrong. 

When dealing with the college age all the angst and drama one could expect was plentiful in the first part of this book. 

The second part is where everything changes when a tragedy rocks them to the core, nothing will ever be the same again,Nothing is permanent, and everything changes even when you don't want it to. The why always in the forefront of their minds, then we hit the last part in the book and we see such a different side to Angelina, so broken and lost The dead girl with the dead heart. But it takes a strong man to bring her back from the depths of despair that she'd sunken to. And answers that they were wanting for closure finally sets them free. 

This was still an un-put-downable read, once started I was engrossed, the highs and lows, the heartbreak, the deceit, the love triangle that had me rooting for the other throughout, a heartbreaking account of true love of two souls connected like no other, kept me committed and engrossed until the end. 

One day later and this book is still taking up residence in my mind, being an angst whore this ticked all my boxes, it had it all, the love triangle that had me in turmoil, the angst that I craved was present, the feels that came rushing at me chapter by chapter had me in my happy place enjoying the ride this author set me on. I never wanted to get off.

♕ REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ STRUNG BY VICTORIA ASHLEY

Title: Strung
Author: Victoria Ashley
Genre: Romance
Publication: December 5th, 2017
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

STRUNG: Is a standalone romance novel by Victoria Ashley. In this we meet Micah Beck & Tegan, spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Tegan and Micah 

Touching down on Californian soil and leaving her overbearing parents behind, Tegan is looking forward to just chilling by the ocean and working on her new book for the next three months whilst visiting her brother Alexandra who owns Vortex the hottest bar in the district. 

Alexander her brother did warn her to proceed with caution when entering his apartment but he didn’t exactly go into detail as to the why? 

So the last thing Tegan expected to see turning up at his apartment would be forever embedded in her mind as one of the hottest sex capade she’s seen. 

Tegan and Micah met in such an unconventional way which was such a unique way to start this book off and that there is why I am such a fan of this authors. 

Alexandra warns Tegan time and time again to stay away from Micah, but that pull whenever he was near bypassed any warnings she got even though she tried to fight the attraction, and knew it could sever ties between Micah and her brother some forces are just stronger than others, an undeniable attraction had these two set on the path of unbridled passion neither could deny. 

They thought just one taster, just one touch, just one night to get the other out of their systems would be enough to curb their desires but they were both wrong. 

I've pretty much read all of this authors books but I can honestly say that this is probably one of my favourites by her. As soon as I started I was sitting in the palm of her hand lapping up the words page after page, I was hooked, I loved these two characters, the storyline, the setting, the love between two siblings, there is nothing I would change and I hope we get more.

♕ REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ BEHIND THE BARS BY BRITTAINY C. CHERRY

Title: Behind the Bars
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre:  Romance
Publication:  December 7th, 2017
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

BEHIND THE BARS: Is a new standalone second chance romance novel by Brittainy C. Cherry and is spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Elliot & Jasmine at the age of sixteen. 

They say opposites attract and in this book that saying couldn’t ring any more truer.

Elliott was a sweet natured boy who kept his head down and tried to become as invisible as he could during high-school, he’d been dealt a raw deal in life, his slight build, his thick glasses and his slight stutter were a beacon for the popular kids to bully him relentlessly, both physically and verbally. 

But when he played his saxophone, magic happened, he stopped becoming the bullied teenager and became a powerful awe inspiring musician, like the pied piper crowds would gather on the corner where he’d busk just to listen in wonder at the sound he produced. A boy who played the most soulful music that spoke to Jasmine when she first saw him playing. 

Before I met Elliot, I thought loneliness was a thing I’d always feel. Then he found me with his music and everything changed. 


Jasmine Greene was beautiful and one of the popular kids without even trying, stuck with an overbearing mother who strived for perfection for her daughter, who pushed and pulled to get her up on the music ladder, for years relentlessly choosing her path in life for her. 

The broken boy and the damaged girl 

When these two meet it was like their souls stuck a cord and ignited they saw what the other tried so hard to hide from the rest of the world. She became his strength when he needed it most and he became her light in the darkest days. Together they were imperfectly perfect. 

We were complete opposites in so many ways. I was the popular new girl, and he, the bullied sh boy. Where I was outgoing, he was tame. When I was lost he was the road map home. 

This dealt with some horrifying bulling, my heart broke, my eyes leaked, my mind wouldn’t stop spinning as a scene played out word by word when bullying went to far. 

I felt their story.
I felt their anguish. 
I felt their hurt. 
I felt their struggles.
But most of all I felt their love. 

He was all bones, and I was all meat. His skin was painted caramel, and mine was white as cream. We were polar opposites. we weren’t mean’t to fall for one another, but when we blended together, we were some kind of beautiful. 

Then her career driven mother pulled up sticks and moved them four thousand, six hundred and twenty-four miles away from what Jasmine would term as home. She tried to stay in touch with Elliot over the years, the boy who stole her heart, the boy who had so much to give, but all of a sudden he just ceased returning her emails. It took Jasmine six gruelling long years to make her way back.

Would she find the boy she once loved? Would he be the same sweet boy she remembered? 

This was so beautifully written, a heart wrenching tale that pulled at every emotion I could feel, once I started I couldn't stop. I connected with the story, the characters, definitely one of my one click recommendations..
