REVIEW... The Science Of Attraction by Verity Jacobs

Kate Ramsey is at the top of her game.

She’s the hot new recruit at the most prestigious research institute in Germany, and she’s determined to live up to the hype — even if it means working day and night. Stress relief comes in the form of a no-nonsense affair with her neighbor, who also happens to be the director of the institute. Who says sex should be anything more than a contract between two people who have other things on their mind?

So when Tom Baker saunters into her life, Kate is understandably upset to see this well-oiled machine splutter and seize. Tom is young and smart, and far too pretty for his own good. Kate can’t help but be drawn to him, even if giving in to the attraction would mean risking everything she’s worked for.


Goodreads THE SCIENCE OF ATTRACTION

This Book Nerd Says: 

If you have been following my blog these last few months you've probably come to realize a few things about me. 

  • I love a really smart, independent, and accomplished female MC. I like when they don't play the typical "damsel in distress" or naive route. I like them to have layers that make me want to continue reading just to get to know them. And if they make me want to be friends with them... BONUS POINTS.
  • I love a hot guy that's more than just a "hot guy". I won't disagree that a guy with abs is great, but a guy with brain to go with the brawn is downright hot.
  • I like really intriguing secondary characters.
  • I like a story that's outside of the box. There's countless stories about rock stars, athletes, fighters, & bad boys and sometimes you just want something that's fresh and unique. 
I say this because all of the above were definitely found as I read The Science Of AttractionThe sexual tension between Kate and Tom is almost tangible from the very moment they meet, which gives such a steamy buildup that had me eager for them both to finally just give in to it already! It wasn't unnecessarily long and drawn out though which was such a relief. The entire span of them fighting and ultimately giving in felt natural. There was humor and genuine humanness that made Kate so relatable to me. I loved the moments where she let her hair down and had fun with everyone because in those moments I think we got the real picture of who Kate was. 

I know it's mentioned that Kate has a secret "relationship" with her boss but please let me reassure you this is not a tangled weave of a love triangle. 
The only thing I disliked about how Kate dealt with her relationship and her non-relationship was this:  
Kate is an intelligent strong character and I only wished she would have taken more initiative (and been a little more assertive) in the confrontation between her and Rob (the boss).  Oh Rob... 
I don't want to say much about Rob because I don't like Rob. I say that with the fondest commendation for his stellar role as the book's bad guy. I did have some suspicions about him, but I'm happy to report that I was genuinely surprised by him and the story developments. And that's all I'll say about that. 

I do wish we would have gotten a bit more information about Tom's family and his life before coming to Germany. I mean we get a few glimpses at Kate's hilarious sister and her supportive parents but just a tiny snapshot of Tom's family life. It is somewhat of a compliment as I think my desire to know more about him is a reflection of how much I adored him though. I mean, for serious, Tom is some serious book boyfriend material. 

On one last note...
At the end of reading I was very happily surprised to see a short sneak peek at the next book in the series. All throughout the story I was loving  Tek and Margot... so I'm was pretty giddy to see Margot's name again. 

The story is fun, hot, steamy, hot, witty, hot, and fun! (did I mention hot and fun?) It wasn't a heavy read and I enjoyed it on a quiet evening with a cup of tea... and a little ice water. 
I am giving this book a solid 4 Stars!
I was very pleased I was asked to give this one a read!

Release Day Launch... The Pact by Karina Halle





*The Pact is a standalone, contemporary adult romance*


It all started with a pinky swear…

Linden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him.

Beautiful, funny and an ambitious businesswoman (with one hell of an ass), Stephanie Robson is one of Linden McGregor’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as he’s known her.

But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.

Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them are in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.

It sounds like fun and games but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.
Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line. 

The pact is about to change everything.






EXCERPT:

Her eyes are so blue and wide, like the morning sky, her mouth so perfectly full. I contemplate running my thumb over her lips before I kiss the salt off of them.
I should just do it. I should just fucking do it.
I swallow hard, my throat feeling closed up but I know it’s not from my cold. It’s from want and it’s from fear.
“What are you staring at?” she asks me, her voice shaking slightly.

Just fucking kiss her.

ARC REVIEW... With A Twist by Sawyer Bennett

* I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

BOOK BLURB: 

Wyatt Banks is ready to give one woman the world. Unfortunately, his job as a cop tends to interfere with other goals. When Wyatt is sent deep undercover to investigate a sex slave ring, he doesn’t have time to do anything but focus on staying alive in a dark and dangerous underworld.

Wyatt isn’t alone though in his quest to save the women that are being sold into sexual slavery. 

His partner, FBI Agent Andrea Somerville, is immersed just as deeply as he is, and she’s the bait to lure the sex slavers out into the open, as she poses as an erotic dancer in an attempt to snare the enemy. But danger runs as high as the sparks between them, and now Wyatt is caught between the job he loves and the woman he wants.


With A Twist GOODREADS



This Book Nerd Says: 

I was so excited to get a chance to read the upcoming new addition to the LAST CALL SERIES by Sawyer Bennett. Each book can be read as a standalone but having read the first and the second books before I read this one made me feel like I was visiting old friends. But if this is going to be your first read of the series, don't worry the other characters are explained enough to give you all the information that you need to know. 

The story opens with Wyatt Banks set to head off on another undercover assignment. This one even more dangerous than the last and the risks couldn't be higher. In order to keep his head in the game of life or death, he has to bury his growing desire for a true companionship, the kind that all his friends seem to have found. 

Andrea Somerville is a goal driven FBI Agent who is trying to make her true dream come true and climb higher in the ranks. When she's assigned to go undercover as a dancer at an adult club she sees the opportunity as a stepping stone to make her resume look even better. But then she meets her partner... 

Wyatt promises Andrea that he won't let anything bad happen to her, and she believes him. But what neither one of them expected was that this one undercover assignment could provide them both with what they really wanted all along. Under the guise of new identities, they feel drawn to each other, and the temptation to cross the lines of duty becomes harder to resist. 
"she's a temptations that while I can't have, I still desire very much." 

This was such a good read! From the very beginning I found myself falling for Wyatt (he caught my eye back in Make It A Double) and this story solidified that he was probably my favorite Male character from this series thus far. But then Andrea caught me by surprise. As a new comer into the established group of "friends in my head" she was endearing kick-butt strong female character, which always gets major thumbs up points for me. 
While some of the books has some intense moments I was pleased to see that the whole plot wasn't focused on them being undercover. I even got some very giggle worthy moments once Wyatt is back around his friends again. 

I am giving WITH A TWIST... 4 Stars

I am hoping there's another book that gives us Casey's story.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review*
This Book Nerd Says: 
I happened to read Mending Michael, the second book in the the Hunter Hill University series, before I read the first book in the series. Although it's a standalone and isn't dependent on reading Calling California first, I kind of wished I did because I found myself at times feeling like I missed out on something that would enlighten me about some of the preexisting relationships that surround Holly and Michael. That being said I still found it to be a good standalone read. 
Michael, or Mick as he's more commonly referred to, is a bartender at his uncle's establishment with way more on his plate than the average college student. From the very beginning we can see that he has seemingly become the only responsible person left in his sister and beloved niece's life. When the only remaining love of his life is taken away from him he struggles to figure out how to get her back. 
His unlikely ally comes in the form of the girl he hates. Holly Buchanan. Holly finds herself pulled into Mick's drama, yet surprisingly she wants to help though days before she wished to avoid him at all costs. It's easier to focus on helping Mick than trying to find the courage to stand up for what she really wants out of her own life. 
The two of them soon find themselves entangled in a furious game of emotional tug of war. It's a bumpy ride to find out whether love or hate will win out in the end. 

When I first began to read the book, one of my very first thoughts were. I really don't like this Holly character. It wasn't hard for me to empathize with Mick's dislike of her.  I'm thinking that was a little bit of the author's intention because as the story develops, Holly is revealed to be really a very layered character. The way she expresses herself seems to frustrate her own self just as much as she frustrated me at times. She definitely surprised me as I felt a reversal and began to empathize with her much more than any other characters. 

Mending Michael deals with some serious topics in the course of Mick and Holly's love story. I always grow wary of people falling in love when I begin to notice some red flags. But what I appreciated about the story was despite the "I want to be with you... but I won't/can't" is that the author made sure these issues were actually addressed by the characters. There was no sweeping serious problems under the rug and hoping that us readers forgot about them. 
I am giving MENDING MICHAEL 3.5 Stars!

Upon finishing the book I received an opportunity to read the first book in the series, Calling California. So stay tuned for that review coming very soon!

5 Star REVIEW... WORTH THE RISK by Claudia Connor

* I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*


When a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.

Two hearts locked away . . . Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It’s easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn’t easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.

Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare—and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night . . . or so he believes.

Both desperate for a second chance . . . Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he’s intrigued. What he doesn’t know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again . . . to a side of himself he’s tried to forget . . . a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.

Worth The Risk GOODREADS


This Book Nerd Says: 

I was so excited when I got this book to read as an ARC because I absolutely adored everything about the first book in the McKinney Brother Series. WORTH THE FALL stole my heart and earned itself 5 stars from me. Whenever I read the second book following a book I strongly loved I always get that tingle of worry. 
Could I possibly love the second as much as the first?
Why yes, yes I could. 
And I did. 
WORTH THE RISK is worth the read and then some. 
It took me reading all of about 5% of the book before I new that Matt McKinney had some serious competition in the form of his brother, Stephen. 
Stephen McKinney, is successful businessman. He's so successful that he has the millions of dollars and Most Eligible Bachelor status to prove it. This means he usually gets what he wants especially when it comes to the women that he spends his nights with.  No attachments, that seems to be his mode of operation in life. He's able to keep the desire for anything more than one night stands and frivolous affairs until he spots her crying in the middle of the grocery store. 
Her name is Hannah. 
Hannah is the younger sister of four fiercely protective brothers. Raised by them, she loves and respects them unwilling to cause them to fear for her...again. She didn't want to take risks, she would never forget the last time she did. But Stephen changes that for her as well. With him she dares to dream of being able to feel whole again. 
As a reader you come to learn fairly quickly that something happened to both Stephen and Hannah. There's no out of left field bomb, rather Connor does a fantastic job at pulling back layers of their histories until it's all laid out and your heart aches for the trauma they both still carry in their hearts. There's some darkness, but it's not overwhelming, instead it makes you appreciate the true healing that happens from beginning to end in this story. This is the story of two people who know pain far too well and are faced with the opportunity to choose to  love and trust again. Hannah not only wakens Stephen's desire to love again, I think she had a special part in drawing him closer to his family again as well. 
It's a beautiful story.
Plus, we get plenty of glimpses at Matt and Abby from WORTH THE FALL, while we fall in love with Stephen and Hannah. I even have some hope held out for another McKinney brother getting the next book... BUT that one I'll keep to myself for now :) 

It's coming out a month from now and if I was you I wouldn't hesitate to pre-order this one so you don't have to wait any longer than necessary to read it!
UPDATED--> Available for purchase right now 2/3/15 





HAPPY READING!!

REVIEW... Natural Love by S. Cieli

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*


Book Blurb (Goodreads)
My whole life, I wanted one thing: to be the perfect son.
Growing up, I did everything my father required. Straight A’s in school. Perfect manners. I forced myself to live up to his standards--standards that pushed the Chadwick family name to the highest rungs of society.
Over the years, we climbed so high that my father hoped we’d never fall.
If only he’d been right. With each successful year, the Chadwick family skeletons grew bolder and darker. Every lie threatened to undo us.

The secret Avery Jackson and I shared was the worst one of all.

She was the one person I shouldn’t love--the one person I couldn’t love. But I did. I loved Avery Jackson. I wanted her, even though a romance with her threatened everything.

It all felt so natural.

And that was exactly the problem.



This Book Nerd Says: 

"Why did I have to fall in love with the one person I am not supposed to have?"
Spencer Chadwick is back  home after a 2 yr imposed stint in the peace corps and one of the first people to welcome him home is his stepsister Avery Jackson. The same stepsister who has seemingly grown even more beautiful than he last remembered. The story wastes almost no time in revealing that something happened before the accident that Chadwick caused, yet it takes the whole story to get the full picture. 
Spencer is desperate for his father's seemingly hard to earn approval. Now that he's home, he's determined to prove that he deserves to take his spot in his father's company and he doesn't want anything to compromise that. Problem is, the thing he wants even more than his father's approval was also the same thing that could ruin their family. 
But now that he's home... just down the hallway from his greatest temptation, he's trying to resist and quickly begins spiraling back down the path he already crashed on. The tension is palpable between them and eventually something has to give... or give in...


This is a story full of secrets and temptation and it kept me engaged from beginning to end. The thing that was a bit distracting for me though had to be that I kept growing wary of any potential relationship for Spencer and Avery (despite their great and tight knit bond) because of the serious red flags that appear almost from the very beginning. I don't want to talk to much about the issues both Spencer and Avery have because you will find out very plainly in the course of the story, and they do play a significant role in the story. Having said that though, I appreciated the way the author handled both situations in the end. When you read about serious issues it's nice to see those characters handle them in a proper realistic way, as opposed glossing over them to add an unnatural shine to the happily ever after. 

So all in all I decided to rate this book 3.5 stars!

REVIEW... Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia

He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She’s the same as a million other girls—certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it’s not long before their bond must prove its strength. Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives.

Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?

In an interwoven tale of unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in this novel, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once.
 


Poughkeepse GOODREADS


This Book Nerd Says: 

So I tend to be one of those readers who likes to devour a book. I'm voraacious, once I pick it up I don't like to put it down until I'm finished. But sometimes, sometimes, I can't put it down. Reading Poughkeepsie was one of those times. 
Daily Livia McHugh passes countless people as she catches her train in to the city. She offers them all a smile in passing, unthinking it truly matters. Until the day she steps up to defend the young homeless man that she likes to call Green Eyes. In that moment she begins to feel more connected to him than she's felt in a very long time. 
"But when you saw me for the first time, you actually saw me. You saw me, and then you smiled like i was just the same as everyone else on that platform..." 
As their friendship shifts into so much more, it's tested at every possible turn by themselves and others around them. As much as I fell for Blake and his broken soul, I was so happy to say that Livia was an amazing MC. She is smart and strong at the same time she is emotional and tender. She loves hard, but she also loves smart. Even if that doesn't make sense to you know, I hope it does when you read this story and come to know Livia. It's easy to see why Blake and Livia love each other.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Livia and Blake's love story is just part of what made Poughkeepsie so special. I was stunned by how many characters I became enamored with simultaneously. There's also the tale of brotherhood, a brotherhood forged by three kids who were different yet came to love each other more than anything. Blake introduces Livia (and us) to his brothers, Beckett and Cole. Throughout the rest of the story we get glimpses of how this forged family came to be, and how serious they take their vow to one another. 
A vow to protect each other and keep each other safe has led them to three completely different paths, yet the bond they have keep them tied together for better or for worse. 
I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a favorite though. Beckett steals the show.
He's amazingly alpha...but for his family. Beckett proves to us time and time again that he would do anything to protect his brothers. When Livia, Kyle, and Eve enter the picture, they also become his family. It's in those relationships we get to see that rough and tough Beckett is probably the most tender hearted one. Everything he does, good/bad/otherwise, is for the benefit of the ones he loves, to give them a chance at a better life. And that just makes me love him even more.  
You ever watch a movie and find yourself rooting for the bad guys to get away from the cops... that is kind of how it was for me and Beckett. Except I find it really hard to see him as the bad guy. Don't misunderstand that for me saying that yes some of the things Beckett does is absolutely wrong. But it's really hard to see him as a bad guy for me. 
Especially when we compare him to the real villains of the book (and there are a few doozies). 


"Blake's company made me want to hug trees and hear music. Cole's company made me want to try harder to be a better person. I never imagined that anyone could love either of these men enough for me to let them go..."  

I kept going back and forth between a 4 and 4.5 star rating for this book. I think the thing that had me pulling back a little was a little of the violence (yeah there's some of that in there). It gave me some pretty intense visualizations and there came a point where there seemed to be a lot to handle. So I took a day after reading to really think about it. I'm not sure the story would be quite the same without it. Seeing (reading) what the brothers had to deal with and how Beckett exacted justice... I think it's necessary to get the true perspective of their characters and the POVs they were operating from. So I'm going to give it a final rating of 4.5 stars.

Can I also add that I didn't realize until I finished the book that this was the first book in a trilogy?
Yup. I am so excited to visit Poughkeepsie again now to see what happens next!
