Review: WHAT ARE THE ODDS by KIMBERLEY HATCH — October 18, 2017

Review: WHAT ARE THE ODDS by KIMBERLEY HATCH

Thank you Kimberley Hatch for sending me a copy of WHAT ARE THE ODDS in exchange for my honest review.

Life doesn’t always turn out the way you planned, especially when you’re Sutton Payne.

A long way from the bright lights of Las Vegas, the tiny town of Broken Bow, Nebraska, might as well be on a different planet as far as she’s concerned. But that doesn’t stop Sutton from taking a chance on a better life there.
Everything in Broken Bow seems perfect–except for Gwen’s grandson, Austin. The town veterinarian might be easy on the eyes and a huge help to his grandmother, but Sutton can’t see past his cold demeanor.
Until Gwen needs them both.
Forced to spend time together for the sake of Gwen, Austin rolls the dice and opens his heart to Sutton. But when you’re Sutton Payne, what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. As her past catches up with her, and her new life comes crashing down around her, Sutton wonders if Austin will still bet on her, or if the odds were never in her favor to begin with.

After traveling with this beautiful book on vacation and snapping some pictures I was finally able to sit down and read WHAT ARE THE ODDS. Kimberley Hatch is one of my favorite Instagram authors to follow and when she asked me to read this novel I jumped all over it.

This book captured me, kid you not, from page one. I loved the characters Ms. Hatch created especially main character Sutton. Sutton’s stubborn self had me smiling as the book went along. Speaking of smiling, I found myself smiling a lot throughout this novel. It was just that light-hearted, make you smile, read as fast as you can type of book and I needed it. I can’t speak highly enough of this book as it was just fabulous. I hope you will grab a copy of WHAT ARE THE ODDS and feel what this book makes you feel.

 

Without a doubt, this book is

All she wants for Christmas is a second chance . . .

Charlotte Daniels has made her share of mistakes, but now that she’s a single mom, she vows to do better–and that starts with a new career. Working at her sister’s event-planning company is just the fresh start she needs.

Kate Daniels has finally forgiven Charlotte for her betrayal, but forgetting it is harder. But as the holidays approach and Kate has her own wedding to plan, she has no choice but to turn to Charlotte for help to throw a high-profile client the holiday party of the season.

Charlotte leaps at the chance to redeem herself . . . until this irresistible client asks her to pretend to be his fiancée for the party. She knows their charade won’t come without consequences–not just for her fresh start with Kate, but also for her own daughter.

As Kate’s wedding draws near and Charlotte’s fake romance starts to feel more and more real, will she fall back into the mistakes of her past, or finally prove herself to Kate once and for all?

Thank you Forever Romance for letting me be apart of this release blitz.

GOOD ME, BAD ME by ALI LAND — September 26, 2017

GOOD ME, BAD ME by ALI LAND

Thank you to Booksparks for sending me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. 

Ali Land’s “GOOD ME, BAD ME” is unlike any book I have read this year. Ali’s writing style for this novel, single point of view, left me wanting more. While “GOOD ME, BAD ME” wasn’t what I expected I already know it will be a book I won’t soon forget.

Milly’s mother is a serial killer. Though Milly loves her mother, the only way to make her stop is to turn her in to the police. Milly is given a fresh start , a new identity, a home with an affluent foster family and a spot at an exclusive private school.

But Milly has secrets and life at her new home becomes complicated. As her mother’s trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.

When tensions rise and Milly feels trapped by her shiny new life, she has to decide: Will she be good? Or is she bad? She is, after all, her mother’s daughter.

Annie AKA Milly comes from a messed up mother. When she’s taken in by Mike & family I could see the good shine through Milly. I felt for Milly and all she had been through, some gory crap if you ask me. Then add her foster sister Phoebe into the equation, I don’t know how she dealt with it all. I really hated Phoebe, I wanted her to be kind to Milly. All throughout the book I could see that Milly was nothing like her mother, mess up yes but not that messed up. The book was pretty straight forward until the end were twist I didn’t see are brought to words. One thing I would have liked added to this novel is a POV of Mike, as I wanted to know more of his thoughts. I enjoyed this novel and couldn’t put it down once I got about mid book. Be prepared to see things you didn’t think you would see.

Ali Land delivers a psychological thriller that will leave you on your seat until the end.

BLOG TOUR: SUGAR PINE TRIAL by RaeAnne Thayne

Thank you to Little Bird Publicity for sending me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Sugar Pine Trail releases Sept. 26th 2017 and I recommend you buying a copy. However my next request will be a little odd. Once this book is purchased I want you to let it sit, don’t touch it. As a reader we all face reading slumps. Gosh they are no fun. I want you to hold off on this book for your worst reading slump because it will pull you out of it so fast! ReaAnne Thayne is a new author to me but I’ll forever be reading this series to see where she takes things.

This book captured me from the very beginning. As mentioned above, I’ve been in a book slump but I couldn’t put this book down. I fell in love with both Julia and Jamie, as well as the two sweet extras Julia recused. Thayne creates so many emotions between both characters that will drive you crazy wondering where they will lead. This is the sweetest book that I’ve read in soooo long. It’s definitely going to be a great Holiday read and I hope you find time this Holiday to first, be in a slump and second to read this novel. I can not wait to read the next in the series.

Checkmate, Angel.
*Recommend for ages 18+ due to sexual content and adult language.*
**This is book w in the Logan & Kayla Saga–a second-chance romance. Must read This is Dangerous first. However, you don’t need to read any of the other Checkmate duet series to enjoy this one, but it’s recommended as they are both introduced in the earlier books.**

All good things must come to an end. While Kennedy Fox may have ended their checkmate series this duo isn’t ending. But that’s also another subject that I’ll get to. (See end of this blog)

“THIS IS BEAUTIFUL” is the concluding book of The Checkmate Series and my goodness is it a hell of an ending! If you’ve read “This is Dangerous” you know the suspense that we were left with at the end. Well, TiB is about to take you for a whirlwind.

As Kayla had lost her memory, which we knew from TiD, she’s still without it in TiB. I envied Logan’s strength as he stood beside Kayla, whether as a friend or boyfriend. We all know Logan to be a tough guy from TiD and his soft side is definitely shown in TiB. I was left saying lots of awwww’s.

While Kayla is struggling to find memories from the past two years, she’s left making choices she normally wouldn’t have. But they could possibly be for the best. Kayla knows how her body reacts to Logan but can’t find those memories they’ve shared. Walls are up but Kayla wants them down. When feelings are changed because of the accident, your left to figure out just how things play out. Kennedy Fox left me sad for Kayla and Logan but also happy for them. Grab your copy TODAY and see how this series ends. Will it be Beautiful? Maybe but maybe not.

EMMA IN THE NIGHT by WENDY WALKER — September 12, 2017

EMMA IN THE NIGHT by WENDY WALKER

Thank you to Booksparks for sending me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. 

EMMA IN THE NIGHT has been all over my feed so when I received my copy I started it immediately. A few chapters in, I knew what all the buzz was about. Wendy Walker is a  phenomenal author and will have you on the edge until the very end. EMMA IN THE NIGHT was a book that I couldn’t put down not for one second.

“One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister’s return might just be the beginning of the crime.”

As mentions above Ms. Walker is truly a wonderful author. Each character in this novel are developed very well.I found myself liking the Cass chapters more so than Dr. Winters. I felt Dr. Winters chapters were over informational at times and slower to finish. However by chapter 17 I was so intrigued and could not read fast enough.

 

From the very beginning I felt Cassandra was a liar because of one little statement.

“I had to be a good artist. I had to find talent where none existed and tell this story in a way they would believe”. 

Whether Cass was a liar or not she had me eating out of her hand. Through the course of this book secrets are unraveled, lies are told and feelings are hurt. Twist and turns that you hadn’t seen hit you head on only to leave your jaw on the floor. While my review is vague, the book will prove to be as readable as I say it is. I hope I have you wanting your own copy of EMMA IN THE NIGHT.

As always,

SOOO much more to come, stay tuned.

And if it wasn’t obvious, this novel was

pop UP blog tour- FINDING MY BADASS SELF by SHERRY STANFA-STANLEY — September 7, 2017

pop UP blog tour- FINDING MY BADASS SELF by SHERRY STANFA-STANLEY

Popcorn and Diet Coke, that’s all you’re going to need to enjoy “FINDING MY BADASS SELF” written by Sherry Stanfa-Stanley. While I’m not a fan of diet coke after reading this memoir you will get where I’m coming from. I would like to give a huge thank you to Booksparks for allowing me to be apart of another pop UP blog tour. You, Booksparks and Sherry Stanfa-Stanley, do not disappoint.

IMG_5348.JPG
Sherry captured me from the very beginning with her 52/52 project, 52 challenges in 52 weeks. Not only did she capture me but she has inspired me to even do my own challenge, I’m thinking 30/30 project.

Many chapters in “FINDING MY BADASS SELF” had me laughing out loud while a few had my lip curled out from being touched by Sherry’s genuine self. Sherry’s 52/52 project diffidently proved her of being said BADASS,the one that proved that the most to me was chapter 11 which will also leave you in tears.
Honestly, I can not say enough good things about this book. Also, I will give nothing away and only tell you that this is a must read. Prepare to be left planning your very own project. Oh and lastly, Sherry, you owe me a Bloody Mary.

This book is without a doubt
