REVIEW : The Backup Plan by Jen McLaughlin

 

 

The Backup Plan

  

 The Backup Plan by Jen McLaughlin
  Jen McLaughlin
 March 19th 2018

 

I’m beyond help…

I threw a football before I could walk. Everything in my life revolved around football–and I loved every second. I was a star. Until, suddenly…I wasn’t. Now everyone thinks I’m the monster who killed his best friend. I’m an outcast on campus, silent and alone. Then Taylor Selmer walks back into my life. When will she learn–I’m beyond saving.

I need to save him…

Chase and I used to be friends. But after the accident, nothing was the same. We used to have something special–until we didn’t. But he doesn’t smile anymore. Doesn’t talk. Doesn’t play. It hurts me to see him this way, and I will do everything I can to get him back in the game. Whether he likes it or not.

At a buddy’s wedding, I met her. The perfect woman. The one who made me want something more than a one night stand. I had the most amazing night with her, only to wake up the next morning to an empty bed. 

Two and a half years later, Garrett met Hope again. If he accept an offer to provide live-in security to some rich tech guy—it turns out she’ll be his new roommate. At first, he wasn’t sure if he wanted the job, but now there’s no way he can turn down this position.

Only Hope refuses to talk about the night they spent together. At the mere mention of it the color leaves her face and her hands shake like she’s on the verge of a panic attack. 

When threats against our new boss escalate, Garrett vows to protect them both. Even if Hope continues to hide something from him. He doesn’t know what it is, but he’s not about to let her go just because his new boss pissed off someone who wants to kill him.

** All books in Dark Water Security can be read by themselves. **

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Madison is a mom to three energetic boys who constantly keep her on the go, a wife to a wonderful man that she’s been with for more than 20 years, a full time managed at a community mental health organization and an avid reader.
Madison started writing in high school as a way to escape a less than ideal home life. It was nothing more than an outlet for her. When she went to college, writing took a back seat as most things do when you have too much on your plate. While on maternity leave after her third son, she started writing again and hasn’t stopped. Only recently has she made the decision to share these stories with you, her readers.
 
Her hope is to write stories that give you what writing gave her, an escape. Even to this day, she loves getting lost in a great story that allows her to leave reality for a little while.

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

Book two in the Dark Water Security Series by Madison Quinn might not be as intense as the first book, but that is hardly surprising as the first book was really a tough one. Still, the author did a great job with Garrett in creating yet another intense character that I instantly loved. What actually made the story less intense for me was the job the two leading characters had aka the “boss” of both of them.

I actually felt irritated at times because with the plot pointing in one direction I somehow expected something that did not happen.

Still, I can not wait for the next book in the series hoping it will be the second owner’s story – on the other hand, I can also see some other interesting stories with other for now secondary characters. We will see what the author will give us next.

Title: The Hashtag Hunt

Author: Kristina Seek

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Hashtag Hunt:

The only reason Lauren entered the Hashtag Hunt was for the $10,000 grand prize. She needed seed money for her startup, and it sounded easy enough: twelve hours to text twelve photos to someone called the Wizard. For hashtag number five, Lauren needs a #HottieInTheWild, and with the help of her best friend, Ivy, she finds the perfect subject.

 

The only reason Brenner entered Barkley’s Pub was to have beers with Scott, an Army brother back in town. The reunion is interrupted when a woman is caught crouched in a dark corner, taking pictures of Brenner. Lauren explains, and though embarrassed, she accepts Scott and Brenner’s offer to help with hashtag number six.

 

While hunting for hashtags, Lauren finds adventure and romance with her #Hottie, but she must stay focused to beat the clock and win the cash.

4.5 # Stars.

Kristina Seek’s debut novel The Hashtag Hunt is easily in the top ten of my most favourite books for 2019 and the year is far from over. I read the blurb and I was right on board with the whole # Hunt.

12 hours to text 12 photos to the Wizard to win $10,000.

Sounds easy right? No it isn’t actually that easy but it sure hell is a lot of fun.

Lauren decided to sign up for the competition to get her baby Paperback Vinyl going so far she’s in the run for the prize money. She’s got her best bud Ivy with her and so they are rocking it. But the challenges are getting harder and harder.

While taking a break at Barkley’s the next challenge comes through

Challenge 5 #HottieInTheWild

And so Lauren & Ivy meet Brenner and Sully, let the fun and games begin because this was a riot in more ways than one. Hashtags and pictures peeps, hashtags and pictures.

I loved everything this book the banter, the situations with the challenges, it is unique, original, bloody hilarious, heart-warming and exciting and totally an unexpected read from a, did I mention debut author. It was worth taking that risk on a NTMA.

I don’t really know how to classify this book it isn’t contemporary romance or a definite rom com but maybe somewhere in between. It is a journey of coincidence and maybe finding love in the most unlikely of places.

Sully & Ivy’s romance is more hands on and they both know what they want and that is one another. Brenner & Lauren are low key when it comes to what they are feeling but they have some really sweet moments. There is no steam but there is passion and well no sex which I am perfectly alright with.

I docked a half star because I got a HFN but what I really wanted was an Epilogue with Sully & Ivy, Brenner & Lauren, last but not least Amy & Moose. Then it would have hit the spot with no shadow of a doubt.

What I would also like to see is a book about the Wizard. Just sayin’ Ms. Seek.

REVIEW : Until I Fall by Claudia Y. Burgoa

 

 

Until I Fall

  

Until I Fall
 Claudia Y. Burgoa
April 3rd 2017

 

Aspen
I gave my heart to a Navy SEAL. He took it with him to his grave. Eleven years later, ignoring the yawning void is as automatic as breathing. Working brutal hours, dating a comfortably commitment-phobic guy, hanging with my best friends. Anything until exhaustion—or an extra glass of wine—claims my consciousness.

Then my neighbor’s handsome, enigmatic son invades my comfort zone. He says he’s a tattoo artist. But Anderson Hawkins’ piercing green eyes, mastery of the short answer, weird schedule, and military ink tell a different story. His touch ignites a long-dead flame inside me. A flame I’m afraid to examine too closely, even as I’m drawn to its heat.

Anderson
I retired from Delta Force and went straight into private security, but undercover work isn’t the adrenaline rush it used to be. For one thing, my Mom’s illness shifted my priorities to finding a way to save her. For another, Dr. Aspen Zimmerman, whose prickly defenses belie the unflinchingly caring heart underneath, has slipped under my skin. Now my mission is to convince her it’s safe to unlock her heart. Because I’m ready to give her mine.

Note: This contemporary romance contains a wary, overworked doctor who’s a military widow in every way but name, an ex-military hero accustomed to treading dangerous ground, brought together by a few unexpected twists and turns—and maybe the machinations of a cute dog.

Except…

The more time they spend together, the hotter the fire between them burns. With every flirtatious smile and brush of his hand, she feels her defenses crumbling.

She wants to hate him, but instead she’s in danger of losing all control.

Read an Excerpt from FALLEN STAR:

Tuesday they were shooting on location in Jackson Square all day. The call time was two hours before dawn, so they could wring every second of sunlight out of the day, and Grace could not stop yawning on the transport van to the location.

“Wakey, wakey,” Scott said, leaning over the back of his seat to shake a plastic tumbler filled with something thick and green and disgusting-looking in front of her face.

“Ugh,” Grace grumbled. “Get that away from me.” She couldn’t help but smile a little though, even through her sleep-deprived crankiness.

An hour later, as the first streaks of light were glimmering in the sky above the river, Scott showed up at the pop-up tent where video village had been set up, and presented Grace with a white paper bag and a tall styrofoam cup from Café du Monde.

“For me?” she asked, perking up considerably. “Did you seriously walk over there and buy me coffee?” He didn’t seem to have gotten anything for anyone else. Just her. Her brain filed this information away to obsess over and analyze later, when he wasn’t standing two feet away grinning at her.

“Café au lait,” Scott said smugly. “And beignets.”

Grace narrowed her eyes at him in suspicion. “Did you make one of the PAs do it?”

“As a matter of fact, I did it all by myself. And I had to take a picture with the employees, so I hope you appreciate it.”

“I do!” she said, beaming at him. “You’re officially my favorite person today.”

He blinked at her, his smirk fading into something else entirely. Whatever that expression on his face was, it sent Grace’s stomach tumbling into a free fall. Rather than examine it more closely, she focused her attention on the bag in her hand. Inside was a mountain of powdered sugar, and buried beneath it were three pillowy squares of fried dough. “Don’t inhale while you’re eating those,” Scott warned her.

“Not my first rodeo,” Grace told him, excavating a beignet. “Want one?”

“Noooo.” He held up his hands in a warding gesture. “I’m doing a water cut for that fight scene on Thursday.”

Right. He’d be shirtless, which meant the Abs of Glory would be on full display. Grace found herself looking forward to Thursday with a little more enthusiasm.

“Sucks for you,” she said, giving him a taunting grin as she bit into a beignet.

His eyes homed in on her mouth with laser beam focus. “That’s fine. I’ll just enjoy them vicariously by watching you eat.”

“Does this get you off?” she asked archly and took another bite.

Scott licked his lips. “Not gonna lie, it kind of does.”

Grace couldn’t help laughing at his retriever-staring-down-a-dog-treat expression, which led her to make the fatal mistake of inhaling with the beignet in front of her mouth. Coughing sugar out of her lungs, she clapped a hand over her mouth as a cloud of fine white powder billowed out in front of her.

Scott sidestepped the powdered sugar typhoon and patted her on the back, chuckling. “Told you not to inhale.”

Today I read “Fallen Star” – the second book in the Starstruck Series by Susannah Nix. Two weeks ago or so I read the first book “Rising Star” and already liked the way this author develops her stories. This time she went even further.

Fallen star is almost a cliché without being one – let’s see how do I explain this …

This book is a lesson on prejudice and pride, a lesson on strength and vulnerability – a story of how they end up in misunderstandings when people do not communicate

It should be a lecture for us to not judge people without knowing everything.

To not condemn them for past mistakes unless they are unforgivable

To give them a chance to redeem themselves if their mistakes are forgivable – especially if we have no idea what actually happened.  

I actually physically hurt for Scott because the way Susannah Nix presented the story is exactly the way it happens in reality. Not that I know anything about the life of people in Hollywood but lets be honest … WE ALL HAVE BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT – and I am more than relieved that I do NOT have wear that T-shirt.

And it is only one step from real life that we know to the social media we also follow. We see things there that someone posted. Someone that might have received money for it or gained otherwise from it. The context in which it is posted might be right or it might be wrong – we are in no position to judge – yet we do it – automatically – either in quiet in our minds or out loud – but we do it.

I bet from the plot you are expecting Scott to be a bad boy – and Grace to be the “innocent victim to his charm” – and maybe I am the odd one out there but for me Scott is actually the “victim” and Grace is the perfect mirror of our society.

Taking the first line from the blurb – actually Grace SHOULD know better – because there is not only this one side to Hollywood – she should know there is also the other side – the one where appearance is everything and once you have a “name” you have it forever – in good times and in bad.

But Grace is written in a way that shows a person can also change her mind believable and the reader can forgive her too for her prejudice.

I really loved how the whole plot developed as it felt real – it never felt exaggerated in any way and I think every reader that likes the blurb will be able to step into the story and feel it.

And maybe we can learn something from it – so we think twice before coming to an opinion the next time we see something on social media.

I have to think about how to write the review to this…

I was 19 when I moved into a nursing home (this is the truth and not a joke)…. the things I saw there made me choose this book for review. Half of their huge attic was converted into a furniture storage and I remember choosing my first furniture there thinking about the persons that used to own these things and the reason they were now in that attic. They had a morgue in the basement right next door to a bowling alley – I don’t know how often I saw a coroner’s wagon drive around to the backside of the building in the dead of the night … so you would think I was prepared to read this book – right ?

Wrong …

I thought I knew what this would be about …

If you think I am not making much sense? well, you should read the book then you would be at a loss too… The thing is … There is hardly anything that I can write about the story because every sentence might give away something – especially the comparison to a certain book that lingers in my mind …. (not so much because of the story but more because of the effect it had on me) …

It is my first book by this author and now I am scared and there is only are only two other authors that scare me this way … One is Colleen Hoover and the other is Jojo Moyes … In mentioning these two I think I am saying a lot. Especially to people that read books of these two. Such an innocent Blurb …. #shaking my head no ….

I loved each and every character in this book – but I would have loved them even more if I could have changed certain things that I can not name here. The writing was well developed and the author did a great job at attempting to kill me – which is not an easy feature given the number of books I read that should have prepared me for just about anything by now.

– for now? well, for now, I will take good advice I received … I opened a bottle of wine and replaced the empty tissue box – and even though I “hate” what the author did – I kind of love it too… shortly before the author’s last words I was wondering if I should open my review with the words “Is it true”? Because everything felt like it was becoming full circle…

Grayson by Lisa Eugene

Title : Grayson
Author : Lisa Eugene
Series : N/A
Rating : 5 Stars

Blurb : An insane love that will keep you from falling—or push you right off the edge. All she needed was a job… The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.
What she got was a mystery…Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man– and he’s stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away? What she discovered was heartbreaking… Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world. What she ended up with was a treasure… Angie is determined to get through to Grayson. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with raging passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.
 
Review : This book is an easy 5 star – which for my tast could have been double in its pages … The author was very sensitive – i feel – about all issues concerning Grayson’s state of mind … There was no sugar-coating around the problems Even if I would have liked the “getting to know and trust” phase to be longer – it was still told in a way that let you connect with the leads – And where many shorter novels lack in their depth of character development – I could not feel any of that in this book I belive that it was (at least for me) obvious who was good and who was bad in that book from the beginning on – and in other books that “seethrough” might have been disturbing – but for this story it was fully ok – as the main object was “Grayson”. I can honestly say I never read something like this before and I fully enjoyed it. And believing that story will stay for me for a while – I have no problem with 5 stars …

On the Way to You by Kandi Steiner

 

 

On the Way to You

  

 On the Way to You
Kandi Steiner
November 16th 2017

 

What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

 

 

My Thoughts in three pictures ….

 

I read half the night – I just couldn’t bring myself to stop. On the Way to You

by Kandi Steiner is one of THOSE books… It is my first read from this author and I am 100 % sure it will not be my last. Her writing style left me speechless in the end. Yeah I intentionally write “in the end” because the book starts off so quietly and I was wondering why I choose to review this ARC …

 

To understand you have to know when a book is offered to me to read I check out the Blurb and then I agree or disagree. I place the book on my schedule with the due dates I get and after that there will be dozens of requests and weeks if not months until I get the book.

 

And then comes the tricky part. I could go back to reading the blurb to remind off the content but lately I developed the habit of intentionally NOT doing that. So when I opend the book I had literally no idea what I was about to read or what I saw in the Blurb the moment I choose it. The first pages floated over me as a gentle breeze until I read that one line “What makes you happy”. In that second I remembered … My Mind went back to a book I read long ago I can not even remember the title to be honest I am about to ask my cobloggers if they remember my ranting at that time. I have to be honest I must have read more than 1000 books since then but I still remember the answer to a similar asked question in that book that made such a big impression on me that I knew ….

 

I knew waiting to get an answer to that question in this book would be a road trip of its own.

 

Road trips are a tricky thing for me – as movies I hate them to be honest but as books they really depend on the travelers and this “lucky Penny” and her “Boy” were worth the journey that much is sure.

 

Especially when I realized that half of their route was one I had made myself 3 times already and will do so again next year.

 

I am at a loss what I should tell you about the book because I am afraid that anything might spoiler something and I am not willing to risk that. But I can tell you my feelings…

 

I was calm

That became interested

Turning in to curious

I smiled a lot only to

Shake my head because I could not comprehend

It made me sad

My heart got heavy while at the same time

My chest got even heavier with love

I cried

And I cried some more

I started hoping

Felt there was something looming in a distance

My heart broke

 

And then  …….

 

YOU should find out for yourself what happened after that but please have some tissues ready
