Idolizing In: Shadow of a Girl by Shannon Greenland

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 238; Kindle Edition - File Size: 1307 KB | Expected Release Date: September 19, 2016 | Publisher: Entangled Publishing : digiTeen | Obtained: NetGalley

"Shadow of a Girl" by Shannon Greenland (aka S. E. Green)

Author's Book Description : Use cash and keep moving.

After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life. Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash, and life out of the spotlight. But when my path collides with West, the lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his spotlight—especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.

West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.

The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love…

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!!! Eve (Nesiah) has spent her life as a shadow of her true self in hopes of staving off the emotional and physical abuse she dealt with daily from her "father." Therefore, after confessing to her longtime friend about the abuse she received they device a plan to get Eve to escape. Once Eve ran away, she hides behind a false identity as a roadie and ends up meeting West (a famous lead singer). Over time, West breaks through Eve's defenses and their friendship turns into something more ... but soon Eve's past and the lies she's kept hidden come to light and might breakup the best things she's ever known. Will it all be too late to save her?

This intense YA rockstar romance had me riveted from the very beginning. I loved the innocent passion Eve shares with West and how empowered Eve becomes throughout this whole novel. Especially since the best part of this novel is the interaction that Eve has with Anne and West! All three characters were awesome and very well written! West's sweet charm and silly flirting skills opened Eve up while Anne became the friend/mother hen figure Eve never had. It's a great teen romance that has Girl Empowerment out the wazoo! It’s simply wonderful.

West and Eve have a unique connection that I'd love to read more about. And while I'm not a big fan of how the ending left things hanging between them it doesn't change my feelings about these two together. They were/are meant for one another!! I LOVE them together as they match up so well. 💗 💖

I HIGHLY recommend this YA rockstar romance!!!

"Sorry," I say again, this time louder. "The crowd's a bit crazy tonight."
"It's the crappy music," he jokes. "Makes the girls leap into my arms to be rescued." ~ within Chapter 2
"Hey, Green Eyes, ready?"
With a nod, I walk over to grab my stuff.
He huffs a laugh. "Those Miss Piggies?"
I look at the row of dancing pigs on my shirt. "Yes."
"I really do need to show you my underwear some time."
Anne rakes her gaze down him. "Well, drop 'em. No time like the now."
West gives her a playful shove.
"Eve changed outfits two times," Anne rats me out.
"I did not," I deny.
"And I changed three. So I'm winning the primp game," West says, making us all laugh. I do love how he can make everything into a joke. ~ within Chapter 16
Late afternoon rolls in, and West asks, "Know how to play pool?"
Anne's awesome at pool, and she spent a whole day back when we first met teaching me how to play. I caught on quick. I like the game. "Yeah, a little," I answer.
"Are you a betting girl?"
"I can be," I tell him.
"Well, I usually wager kisses."
I laugh. "Kisses?"
"But since we're way past that point, how about this: if I win, you have to go back with me to visit my family."
I would've gone anyway. "And if I win?"
"You name it," he says.
I think about that a second. "I know. I want to stay in a big fancy suite in the next city."
He nods. "Deal. Only if you let me come over and ravish you with my luscious kisses."
"Luscious kisses?" I ask, completely amused. ~ within Chapter 44

Idolizing In: The Governess Series, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 2146 KB | Expected Release Date: October 10, 2016 | Publisher: Simon & Schuster : Gallery Books : Pocket Star | Obtained: NetGalley

"The Governess Was Wanton" [The Governess Series, Book 2] by Julia Kelly

Author's Book Description : This delightfully charming and saucy historical romance series features three best friends, employed as governesses for different families, who all find themselves wanting something they can’t have.

Mary Woodward, a young veteran governess, has one job: guiding a young debutante through her first season in high society. And up until now, keeping her focus and avoiding temptation has been easy. But never before has the father of her young charge been as devilishly handsome as the single, wealthy Earl of Asten…. Convinced to risk it all, Mary let’s herself enjoy one night of magic at a masked ball in Asten’s arms, but will they both regret everything when the Earl learns her true identity?

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!! When Mary starts her latest job as the governess to the Earl of Asten's only daughter, she finds her world tilted of its axis by the Earl (Eric) himself. He's handsome, smart, and kind with a roguish streak the only seems to come out around her. They try to maintain distance between them but the night of the masquerade ball the distance becomes obsolete but only Mary knows the truth. Will Mary & Eric be able to have more than stolen moments together or will their ranks keep them separated forever?

This novel enamored me from the very beginning!! The illicit situation that brews between Mary & Eric is sweet and all consuming; it had me wanting their story to be never-ending. All the characters were entertaining in their own right making this Cinderella-ish novel so fun to read!

Yet, what captured me was Mary & Eric. The intense connection they shared was thrilling to read about while charming in a way that wish I could've read about more (like in an epilogue). They were perfect for one another. And how Mary just seemed to fit into Eric and his daughter's lives was so seamless that it only took putting down "the rival" to make everything work for them. 💖

This is one of my favorites so I definitely recommend it to those looking for a slightly erotic historical romance!!!

She laughed. "If I told you, you wouldn't need me anymore."
"I wouldn't say that." His eyes darkened as he said it---or did she just imagine it? Either way, something sparked deep inside of her, and for one crazy moment all she wanted to do was grip the man by his loose collar and drag his lips to her. ~ within Chapter 6

Idolizing In: Found in Oblivion Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 5021 KB | Release Date: August 21, 2016 | Publisher: Rainbow Rage Publishing | Obtained: Amazon

"Bedded Bliss" [Found in Oblivion Series, Book 1] by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott (aka Taryn Quinn)

Author's Book Description : A hot night in Vegas is just what the rockstar ordered…until someone ends up married.

Michael Shawcross is living the dream, opening up for his idols, Oblivion, on his band Warning Sign’s first tour. Until an overzealous fan goes too far and his hard-partying ways catch up to him in the form of an ultimatum from his manager, Lila Crandall.

Clean up your image—or else.

Single mom Chloe Adams is in Vegas for a rare girls’ night out. She wasn’t ever supposed to be attracted to another rockstar. In fact, she’s in rockstar rehab, and the cure for her addiction definitely isn’t a sexy, smart-assed guitarist with wicked fingers.

She never expects to accidentally end up his wife. Or to have her new husband suddenly decide that she’s the solution to all his problems. And surprise…he’s happy to show his appreciation in a number of interesting, inventive ways.

Pretending their marriage is real might just be the hottest proposition she’s ever been given.

But what happens when a lie becomes the truth?

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! Two acquaintances meet up unexpectedly in Vegas. After a night of partying and heavy flirtation they wake up to find they’re married yet have no memory of doing so. Both are from different upbringings and completely different worlds, but because of how he was raised Michael doesn’t want to get divorced and plans on assisting Chloe any way he can so their marriage will work. Will all of Michael’s plans fall into place, making it so Chloe, her son, and Michael can actually be a good family together? Or will others try to keep them apart for good?

This is the first really sweet rockstar romance novel that I’ve read in a while, and I am SOOO HAPPY that I found it! Though I feel that Ms. Quinn & Ms. Elliott need to put together some type of “family tree” for the band (if they haven’t already) just to keep everyone’s backgrounds straight, I did not feel lost at all in this novel and it kept me entertained the whole way through, with an intriguing plotline and characters (main & secondary) to boot!

Both Michael & Chloe are intense and driven people, so much so that they have a hard time listening to one another in the beginning but it makes their banter and their story that much more fun! I loved how Michael pretty much worshipped Chloe. I mean they might not have known each other that well before Vegas but I loved how their relationship came together and how Michael was determined to make a go of them together no matter what. I was charmed! In addition, I adored how the ending played out making it so they had a situation to deal with and to triumph over instead of one of them accidently hurting the other. As I said above, it made me all so happy. *hehee*

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for an awesome rockstar contemporary romance!

Her wild hair, her seductive movements, and the longing in her eyes were his undoing.
His fucking personal Waterloo.
He hadn't planned on hooking up with anyone tonight. Definitely hadn't expected to be riding a high like this. But the buzz in his blood and the look of her ate at him, tempting him to seek her out for real after the concert ended.
Backstage pass, hell. He'd give her a bedroom pass, then tie her to his headboard right through the next morning.
She could be taken. Possibly even married. Could be a psycho. Damn, she might even be underage. She definitely had that whole schoolgirl thing going on, even with her hot clothes and gyrations. But he didn't care. Oh, he would---later. After.
Jesus, there had to be an after with her or he was going to lose his mind. ~ within Chapter 7 - titled 'Las Vegas'
Being near her was like standing in the path of the sun. As much as he just wanted to bask in her warmth, he needed more. Had to taste every part of her and remind himself that even if none of this made sense, even if it never did, he didn't have doubts when it was just the two of them.
Was it insane? Sure. Absolutely. An insanity he craved.
Maybe that was all he needed to know. ~ within Chapter 22 - titled 'Los Angeles'

Idolizing In: Shifter Shield Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 3582 KB | Release Date: June 15, 2016 | Publisher: Bathory Gate Press | Obtained: Amazon

"Under Her Skin" [Shifter Shield Series, Book 1] by Margo Bond Collins

Author's Book Description : She’s lucky he’s a charmer. He’s lucky she doesn’t bite. Much.

Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter. She has no desire to search for others like her—until a new case changes everything. When Lindi learns that she she’s not the only shapeshifter in the world, she also realizes she might be next on a killer’s list.

In order to save herself and the abused children she works with, she will have to team up with Dr. Kade Nevala, a member of the shifter tribe responsible for eradicating weresnakes—and the most attractive man Lindi’s ever met. Even more terrifying, she’ll need to embrace her serpent side, a choice that has enormous consequences for Lindi, and for everyone around her.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! Even though she grew up in a loving home, being a weresnake with adoptive human parents, Lindi has always felt like she was missing something. Nevertheless, she grows up to develop her natural abilities to help out children suffering from violent crimes to be their councilor. During one of her on the job outings, she meets a little girl who is a shifter too who realizes what Lindi truly is, which brings Lindi to find out that there are more shifters out there than just her. Yet, when she gets more involved in the “shifter world” Lindi realizes that who she is, a weresnake, is something that most shifters fear and feel they should be killed immediately. Instead though Lindi travels a rocky path between learning about her new life, assisting the shifter world to find an actual child killer who has access to her own case files, and falling into an unintentional relationship with someone who is suppose to be her “sworn enemy.” Will she be able to embrace a life she may not be ready for? And if she can, will she be able to “win over” the shifter world in order to stay alive for good or at least long enough to help out?

It’s been a long time since I read a novel written entirely in the first person POV, and I liked it. I was enraptured with this novel from the beginning from learning about how Lindi grew up with her adoptive family to how she copes with learning her new skills about her snake-half after finding out about the shifter world. In addition, I enjoyed Lindi’s feistiness as well as how her snake abilities helped her assess life and the people around her.

However, through this multilayered plot what hooked me even more was the brewing relationship between Lindi and Dr. Kade. As their were-animals are sworn enemies, finding that Kade happens to be Lindi biggest ally is intriguing in more ways than one. Then add in their combative attraction seems to set the pages on fire and me wanting to read more about this dynamic duo.

This novel is written in a way that while the biggest plot seems to wrap up by the end, what will happen to Lindi afterwards isn’t completely said. Therefore, I feel that the Shifter Shield Series will follow Lindi quite a bit (and I’m very happy because of that).

I HIGHLY recommend this novel and series to those looking for a unique paranormal shifter romance!!

Idolizing In: The Fine Art of Pretending Series, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 255; Kindle Edition - File Size: 1994 KB | Expected Release Date: April 5, 2016 | Publisher: Spencer Hill Press : Contemporary | Obtained: NetGalley

"The Natural History of Us" [The Fine Art of Pretending Series, Book 2] by Rachel Harris

Author's Book Description : One class assignment. One second chance at love. The school player is all in. Now he needs to win back the sweet commitment girl who’s forever owned his heart.

Justin Carter has a secret. He’s not the total player Fairfield Academy believes him to be. Not really. In fact, he used to be a one-woman guy…and his feelings for her never went away. Too bad he broke her heart three years ago and made sure to ruin any chance she’d ever forgive him.

Peyton Williams is a liar. She pretends to be whole, counting down the days until graduation and helping her parents at the family ranch. But the truth is, she’s done everything she can to get over Justin, and salvation is just around the corner. With graduation one short month away, she’ll soon break free from the painful memories and start her life fresh. Of course, she has to get through working with him on one last assignment first.

For Justin, nothing ever felt as right as being with Peyton, and now that fate’s given him a shot at redemption, he’s determined to make the most of it. And for Peyton…well, Justin Carter has always been her kryptonite.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! It had always been Peyton’s plan to attend Fairfield Academy (instead of being homeschooled) once she reached her Freshman year of high school. However, coming down with an unexpected illness not long before she began the school year definitely was not in her plan. Therefore, she begins at Fairfield Academy once she is in recovery during the middle of her Freshman year, which is the same day she meets Justin (all-round Fairfield Academy hottie, player, and baseball player). They come from completely different worlds but they are drawn together and fall into a sort-of relationship quickly. Yet, when things get tough, Justin makes a plan to brake them up. Yet, though Justin’s plan works and he goes back to his player ways, he regrets it more than anything else. So, during the last month, or so, of their Senior year when Peyton and Justin get thrown together for a school project Justin plans on laying it all on the line to win Peyton back for good. But will he be too late?

This touching sweet YA romance, will leave you reeling one moment and then contentedly rooting for Justin and Peyton the next. Unexpectedly charming. There was no point when I hated either Justin or Peyton, they were such good characters, and their backstories made me feel for both of them. The depth of this novel intrigued me so much I had a tough time putting it down.

Justin and Peyton’s attraction, instant connection, and camaraderie were what won me over. Then adding in Peyton’s attitude towards Justin when their project begins gave the novel an entertaining twist that gets the reader immersed in their “relationship” from the beginning. They may look like opposites, because of their family backgrounds and where they live, but at the core of who they are, they seem to have a lot of similarities. It made me happy to see them coming together after so long being apart. Especially since, once they start to working out their issues between themselves they help each another to overcome the fears that have been holding them back from their desires and each other, which all creates a great ending.

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for a compassionate YA romance!

"The Sheikh's Baby Scandal" [One Night With Consequences Series, Book 23] by Carol Marinelli

Author's Book Description : Pregnant…by the playboy sheikh!

Playboy sheikh Kedah of Zazinia has loved every minute he's spent earning his outrageous reputation! But about to claim the throne, and with a list of prospective brides being prepared, Kedah knows he must soon accept his royal duty…

A scorching night with his poised assistant, Felicia Hamilton, seems the perfect distraction—and her cool beauty masks a desire Kedah is hungering to ignite! But even Kedah isn't prepared for the biggest scandal of all, when their one night together leaves Felicia pregnant with his baby!

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars! Ever since Kedah was a young boy, he has been aware of his family’s rigid standards and the precarious nature of him becoming the Crown Prince he is supposed to be. Over the years, he grew into a man who cares deeply for his country but turned into a self-made billionaire playboy to ensure he was in control of his future. Now with his grandfather finally passed, he is the official Crown Prince, and he knows that soon the Accession Council will probably meet to overthrow him to his younger brother. Therefore, he brings in Felicia (a renowned PR representative) to become his London PA. During their time together, they grow closer than they typically do to others and soon the lines are blurring between their personal lives and business relationship. Then just when the Accession Council decides to go forward with their plans to thwart Kedah, Felicia gets a curve ball of her own … will they be able to deal with all the issues being thrown their way and still manage a “working relationship” or will everything come to a head and ruin their best laid plans.

Endearing. Spicy. Erotic. With a whole lot of sass. It was easy to enjoy this fast-paced contemporary romance that entices its readers into wanting to find out about Kedah’s parentage as much as he does. Then with it throwing in the elusive Felicia, this novel gets a WHOLE lot hotter!

While both Kedah and Felicia are very domineering, I find it intriguing in the way their relationship grew from co-workers to lovers with the possibility of something more. I couldn’t get enough of them as a duo. The heat between them rises off its pages.

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for an erotic contemporary romance!

Idolizing In: The Dream Chronicles, Book 1

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 252; Kindle Edition - File Size: 757 KB | Expected Release Date: March 25, 2015 | Publisher: ImaJinn Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"DreamSinger" / "Dream Singer" [The Dream Chronicles, Book 1] by J. A. Ferguson (aka Jo Ann Ferguson, Joanna Hampton, Jo Ann Brown, Rebecca North, & Marianne Ellis)

Author's Book Description : A world lost . . .

First Daughter Nerienne, heir to the Tiria of Gayome, faces the destruction of everything she knows when her mother’s enemies kill the Tiria. Nerienne is left with just her magic and with Bidge, a mysterious creature that speaks only to her. She is rescued by Durgan Ketassian, leader of the rebels in the northern woods, but can she trust this man whom her mother condemned to die?

A dream found . . .

Durgan knows he cannot trust Nerienne. Her mother had been his enemy ever since she began slaying dreamsingers, skilled musicians who sing the future through one’s dreams. He has vowed to see his people free of the Tiria’s domination, never guessing the Tiria’s daughter could awaken parts of his heart he’d shut away.

A song without end . . .

To save Gayome, Nerienne and Durgan must work together to defeat their common enemy. But to become allies opens them to the greatest threat of all . . . falling in love.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! One woman struggles to uphold her responsibilities in the face of her world crumbling around her while one man seeks vengeance for all he has lost. Together they become unlikely allies against those who plan to give them equal harm. Yet, can they do so without losing themselves and their hearts to one another in the process?

This epic journey begins with this enticing novel! Intense and spell binding, I was riveted from the very beginning when Durgan is plotting his “escape.” In ways, it reminded me a lot of Maxine Mansfield's The Academy Series because of how the characters from Ms. Mansfield's series and this one (Ms. Ferguson's) seem to have similar characteristics to me, and how the series' are laid out.

Their snark, courageousness, and determination won me over in the beginning and reading about them slowly falling for one another made me root for Durgan and Nerienne more so then most characters I’ve read about. Together they make one grand couple (two pieces of a whole) that could rule all if only they'd allow it. I LOVED their banter! Plus, adding cute/sweet Bidge into their relationship didn’t hurt either.

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for a fantasy romance with an epic tale.

"You are a woman, not a goddess. You are mortal," he whispered. "A single slash of a blade here will rid Gayome of you."
"You will not kill me." Her voice wobbled on each word, but she kept her chin high. She must not let him discover how his touch unnerved her. "You need me."
"You have no idea how much."
His lips claimed hers as he swept her to him. She gripped his sleeve, caught between wanting to flee and wanting to stay in his strong arms. ~ within Chapter 4
Their guards argued over who would have the honor of announcing their victory. Underneath their voices, Nerienne whispered, "How do you fare?"
"Not bad," Durgan answered. "The bleeding's stopped. I should survive long enough to be executed." ~ within Chapter 13
"Let's go and look about the marketplace. There is no sense fighting about this now."
