Feasted On: A Summer Novel, Book 3

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 291 | Release Date: April 2011 | Publisher: Simon & Schuster | Obtained: Pasquotank-Camden Library

"We'll Always Have Summer" [A Summer Novel, Book 3] by Jenny Han

My Book Summary : Two years have passed and during that time Isabel (Belly) and Jeremiah has built a relationship for themselves that they love. They think nothing can bring them down. So, while at a fraternity party celebrating the last few days of college (and Belly's freshman year), Belly hears that Jeremiah has cheated on her. She's sad, hurt, and unsure of where to go from there, except she knows that she needs space.

Once they are able to talk to each other again Jeremiah makes amends with Belly, in a way that she never expected but they are both very excited about. Before their summer hits they make plans and hope their families will support their decisions. Soon, however, they find that what they want and what their parents want for them are two separate things. So, Belly decides to stay at the Cousin's beach house after a huge fight with her mother, she just didn't expect to have Conrad (Jeremiah's older brother) staying there at the same time. But that's okay, their relationship is over but they can still be friends, right?

However, when everything seems to be falling apart and Conrad is the only one around to help her, Belly finds that she now needs, and gets, to confront her feelings for Conrad to be sure what they had is truly over. Especially before things completely change for her ...

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars. "We'll Always Have Summer" wraps up the admiring story of the young love that Isabel has for the two Fisher boys. The author does a wonderful job of taking on a hard situation, of two brothers wanting the same girl, and putting a sweet and heartwarming spin on it.

I loved how everything turns out for Isabel, Conrad, and Jeremiah!! Especially since she ends up with the boy I liked the best! =0) However, there were plenty of twists in this book that first you were thinking Belly would choose one of them, and then you think she's going to go for the other, and back again. But I did really like how it all ended. Even though I wish there was more about the one she ends up with and her, I also know that whatever the author could have added probably would never have stop me from wanting more. So, oh wells.

I definitely recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good YA love triangle! Also, I recommend it to those of you who enjoy books by Sarah Dessen and/or Elizabeth Scott.

What would he say when we told him our news? I couldn't begin to guess. When it came to Conrad, I was never sure of anything. I worried, too, about what my mother would say. Jeremiah wasn't worried, but he so rarely was. He said, "Once they know we're serious, they'll have to get on board, because they won't be able to stop us. We're adults now." ~ within Chapter 13
She had on a light purple dress. She looked grown up. It occurred to me that she had grown up while I wasn't looking, that there was every likelihood she had changed and I didn't know her anymore. But when she stood up to clap, I saw the Band-Aid on her ankle and I recognized her again. ~ within Chapter 20

      What girl doesn't want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out?

As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university.

    Feasted On: Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 356 KB | Release Date: October 2009 | Publisher: HarperCollins | Obtained: Amazon.com

    "Lord of Scoundrels" by Loretta Chase

    My Book Summary : Sebastian, the Marquess of Dain, (also known as Lucifer, the Devil's son, Beelzebub, Dain, and quite a few more names) likes his life of debauchery. However, he gets a complete surprise when Jessica (Jess) walks into his life with plans to try to save her brother, Bertie, from his debts and get Bertie out of association with Dain. Dain will not be one to be told what to do by a woman, let alone be told by a lady! So, he does everything in his power to hurt Jess, through using her brother, even more.

    Jess won't back down though, and every bad move Dain makes she seems to get him back some way or another. Yet when these two hot-tempered people get in too close proximity, the sparks and chemistry between them seem to be combustible, making their irritation with each other turn into a passion that cannot be denied.

    When there are people that are willing to do anything to trump up this pair, by doing whatever it takes to put them into a scandal or worse, will they let their pride get in the way of the facts and go after each other or will they be smart about the situations go after the ones at fault instead?

    My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Exciting and smartly written! I was interested in reading this book ever since I saw it listed as one of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Favorite Historical Romances on her website, and I'm very happy to say that I completely agree with her in it being a new fave for me too!! Which is saying a lot, especially since I'm not always one for liking historical romances.

    Dain has had a very tough life. Because of his past he is now a man who lets very few (if none) people see his true self, and if anyone or anything stands in his way or in front of what he wants he will blow them away with any means necessary. Plus, he's also smart enough to negotiate with the best of them, so usually everything just happens to work out his way. Jess is a hellion all on her own, at least for the time period, and even if she can't outwit Dain at times, she sure can keep him guessing. It is not hard to like this pair, their schemes (against and with each other), and the hot chemistry that they have together.

    I definitely recommend this book if you are a fan of historical romances with characters with a LOT of pride on their side, and/or if you are a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

    Book Teaser(s) :
    Bertie approached, and in his playing-field confidential whisper asked, "Any idea what she said, Dain?"
    "Yes."
    "What was it?"
    "Men are ignorant brutes."
    "You sure?"
    "Quite."
    Bertie let out a sigh and turned to the female, who still appeared fascinated with the contents of the display case. "You promised you wouldn't insult my friends, Jess."
    "I don't see how I could, when I haven't met any." ~ within Chapter 1
    Miss Trent, in short, was not only going to make Lord Dain crawl, but she would have Herriard do the dirty work for her, and have it all done legally, with not a loophole for Dain to wriggle out of.
    "There is no animal more invincible than a woman," Aristophanes had said, "nor fire either, nor any wildcat so ruthless."
    Ruthless. Vicious. Fiendish.
    "Oh, no, you don't," Dain muttered. "Not via go-betweens, you demon spawn." ~ within Chapter 8

    Idolizing In: Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins

    - This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 378; Kindle Edition - File Size: 5 KB | Expected Release Date: October 25, 2011 | Publisher: HQN Books | Obtained: NetGalley

    "Until There Was You" by Kristan Higgins

    My Book Summary : Cordelia (Posey) has always been a 'little thing' throughout her life. When she was younger that was okay, but when she got into high school is when peers would start to rag on her about it, and even though she has always known she was adopted, being so never really helped the situation, so she has always tried to stay in the background. But when she spots Liam during his first day at high school, looking like a bad boy and too cool for the school, her crush on him starts. However, Liam always paid her very little attention, even after he started working for her parents at their German restaurant, but after Posey over hears Liam talking rudely about her to his friends her heart completely brakes.

    Now years have passed, Liam is a widower with a teenage daughter and they have moved back to town, and Posey finds herself falling back into a crush (and maybe more) with him. Keeping her distance would be the best idea. However, that seems hard to do, especially when her parents ask him to keep visiting and the usual things that go on when living in a small town. But when Liam starts looking to reciprocate her feelings that should be good, right? Or will Posey's heart get broken all over again?

    My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!!!!! Oh My Goodness!!!! This is a wonderful, funny, and sweet novel that I could not get enough of!!! It is by far the best novel I have read of Kristan's, just topping out my old favorite of hers "Too Good To Be True!"

    This is the FIRST novel of Kristan's where you get to read from both points-of-view of the main characters, Posey & Liam, and I have got to say I was SOOO Happy about that!! As I love to be able to see what the guy thinks! =0)

    Posey is such a great character. You get to read about how timid she was in high school, then how friendly and outgoing she was as an adult.

    Liam is great and sounds so hot! I love how you get to read about his memories with his wife and daughter. And how he's now dealing with being a single parent of a pretty teenage daughter. It's all very funny the way he stresses out over the little things, but very endearing as well.

    Then we have the great cast of secondary characters from Posey's family (her parents--who are definitely German and proud of it, her brother--who is a surgeon and loves it, her brother-in-law--who is a character in and of himself, her cousin, and her 'Little Sister') to Posey's friends .... they were great and I really appreciated that Kristan wrapped up the secondary plots so nothing was left hanging.

    All in all it is a great book, I loved reading it, and I think if you are a fan of Kristan Higgins' books then you will enjoy reading it too!! Or if you like any of Susan Mallery's books you should appreciate this one also!

    Idolizing In: Fools Gold Series, Book 6

    - This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 344; Kindle Edition - File Size: 482 KB; Audiobook - Unabridged | Expected Release Date: September 27, 2011 | Publisher: HQN Books | Obtained: NetGalley

    "Only His" [Fools Gold Series, Book 6] by Susan Mallery

    My Book Summary : Nevada has an interview for her dream job at Janack Construction, the prospect of working in a new environment but still living in her hometown is very compelling. However, when she goes in for the interview instead of seeing the owner she sees his son, Tucker, a man who completely broke her heart 10 yrs ago and she was hoping she would never have to face again.

    Although Tucker knows what he has done in his past was wrong he also knows that Nevada is perfect for his new construction project. So, after a bit of apologizing Nevada accepts the position as long as they can leave the past behind them. Starting over and building a friendship between each, other is easier than either one of them expected. However, when it seems like their relationship could take a turn for the better, a person from their past comes back into their lives and starts to cause problems for the town, making the Mayor put them in charge of the situation. Will their past, both literally and figuratively, get in the way or will they be able to make it through?

    My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!!! "Only His" is a witty, smart, and fun novel that reminded me as to why I am addicted to Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series. The plot twists and surprises in this book are extreme in a way I never expected the author to take them, but I enjoyed the ride and I cannot wait for her next books in this series, "Only Us: A Fool’s Gold Holiday" / "Summer Days" / "Summer Nights" / "All Summer Long", to come out!!

    I loved the back-story between Nevada, Tucker, and Cat. Nevada and Tucker's relationship had twists all over the place but I was rooting for them the whole time. Then, I'm very happy to report, Denise and Max's story wraps up nicely and the other major secondary story is very appealing too, where you find out another back-story of a character that the author kept hinting at but never filled in until now. Plus, catching up on what is happening with characters from previous books is always fun too.

    If you are a fan of Susan Mallery's books or just a fan of Fool's Gold, then you'll love this story!!!

    Disappointmentville: Werewolf Series, Book 8

    - This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 363 | Expected Release Date: December 1, 2011 | Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca | Obtained: NetGalley

    "Dreaming of the Wolf" [Werewolf Series, Book 8] by Terry Spear

    My Book Summary : Jake really didn't want to bring his photography to the gallery out-of-town but he couldn't deny his sister-in-law, especially now that she's pregnant. However, when he gets there he finds that the gallery’s closed for the morning so he'll need to find something to occupy his time until he can drop off his photos. Soon he becomes enamored with a woman walking down the street, and follows her to see what she's up too. Jake finds the woman, Alicia, in a restaurant checking out some men who seem like thugs. After finding an opportunity to talk with her, he finds out he was correct with that assumption, as she's a bounty hunter going after the men who killed her mother. Intrigued with Alicia, even though she's a human and not a wolf, Jake wants to enjoy her company and try to stop her "vendetta" from going after these thugs as it doesn't seem safe, then he believes that they can just go back to their lives as it's not right or responsible of him to get involved with her.

    However, after spending some time with her he's not sure if he'll be able to part from her, and then she makes the choice for him when she takes off fearing for his life. Depressed Jake heads home, but soon finds that he can't get Alicia out of his system especially when he keeps having erotic dreams of her. Is there any way for him to protect Alicia even though he doesn’t know where she is and without going against his pack’s rules or by the time he finds out where she is will it already be too late?

    My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. This is the first book from this series that I've read. It was a cute read, with some decent action scenes, and had good characters. However, it was kinda boring. I mean I got the plot right away and even though there were some twists that I didn't expect that made the story even more interesting it really didn't keep my interest that long. I had to forge my way through to finish the book since I was curious as to how it would end, and it does have a sweet ending, but I know I'll never read it again.

    This is probably a good read for those who are fans of Terry Spear and this series. But it just wasn't a good pick for me.

    Book Teaser(s) :
    Teaser #1
    Startling her, the woman repeated the question, more insistent this time. "This is the sheriff's department. What is the nature of your emergency?"
    Alicia licked her lips and said in a whisper, "Someone broke into my motel. Crest--"
    But the miniscule relief Alicia felt that the person at the door couldn't open it without unlocking it didn't last long. A strong kick at the door broke a lower section of the paneling away, the crash making Alicia jump back.
    "They're trying to kill me! Crestview Motel. They're breaking in!" she shouted, the need for secrecy a moot point, as she hoped the sheriff's department was close by. ~ within Chapter 10

    "Waiting On" Wednesday: Breakaway

  • Today's "Waiting On" Wednesday by Jill - click here



  • "Breakaway" [New York Blades Series, Book 11] by Deirdre Martin
    Expected Publication Released Date: February 7, 2012

    Author's Book Description:
      They had it all planned out: college, marriage, happily ever after.
      But it didn't quite work out that way...

      Erin O'Brien was everyone's favorite in Ballycraig, while Rory Brady was the town's golden boy: the local lad who moved to America and became a professional hockey player. Rory promised to return to sweep Erin away to the life of her dreams in New York. But the bright lights and late nights turned his head and he never came back.

      Two years later, Rory realizes he's made the worst mistake of his life. Heading back to Ballycraig, he's confident that all he needs to do is flash his winning smile and Erin will fall back into his arms. But Erin's moved on.

      Racing the clock, Rory needs to prove to her that the man she fell in love with is still there. But can happy-go-lucky Erin risk it all and give another chance to the man who broke her heart?
