Review ~ Cheater's Regret by Rachel Van Dyken

Cheater's Regret (Curious Liaisons, #2)Cheater's Regret by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was another great read by Rachel Van Dyken. It was exactly what I needed as i recovered from an annoying January cold. Cheater's Regret made me chuckle, kept me engaged, and i couldn't put it down. I loved the connection between the characters and the banter that flowed back and forth. It was broken up with a few more angsty or emotional moments, but for the most part it was a light-hearted read.

I can't wait for the next RVD release!

Review ~ When We Touch by Tia Louise

When We TouchWhen We Touch by Tia Louise
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A quick easy read. I raced through When We Touch in a matter of hours. It held my attention well and kept me entertained. I still prefer her Prince and the Player series, but this was a good second chance romance.

Review ~ Thrive (Guardian Protection, #2) by Aly Martinez

Thrive (Guardian Protection, #2)
eARC received via Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: January 18th 2018

Publisher: Self-published

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl. 

But if we’re talking technicalities, he wasn’t supposed to be cheating on her every other weekend, either.

The day I met Mira York, I knew she was off-limits. But after months of stealing side-glances while he ruined the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen, I realized there wasn’t a rule in the world I wouldn’t break to make her mine.

She chose him anyway.

I wasn’t sure how I’d ever move on, but bitterness turned into fuel for my fire.

Without Mira, I thrived.

Until seventeen years later, when she showed back up, begging for protection from the very same man she’d left me for all those years earlier.

Now, it was my turn to choose. 

And she wasn’t going to like my answer.

THRIVE takes place seventeen years AFTER a love triangle.

My Opinion

I never quite know what I'm going to get with this author. I have loved her previous work, but I've also been disappointed by some titles. It's a bit hit or miss and I seem to only have extremes when I read Martinez's work: love or hate. Thrive finally seemed to break that pattern.

While I didn't hate this book, I didn't love it either, not like I loved Transfer or The Darkest Sunrise. Thrive held my attention, but I felt it was only an okay read. It didn't really draw much of an emotional response for me. I also didn't like the main characters very much. Don't ask me why, I don't know. There was just something stopping me from connecting to Mira and Jeremy.

As for the plot, I liked the idea but I got a bit lost towards the end. Maybe I noticed it more because I've read four outstanding books by this author so I know how good she can be, but the story and writing felt a bit disjointed in Thrive.

Overall, I've read better books by Martinez. It wasn't a bad read but when compared to the tear-jerkers I've read by her in the last few years then it's hard to forget. I'd recommend it if you like this author but if your new to this author then I'd recommend the series aforementioned more.

Review ~ Under Her by Samantha Towle

Under HerUnder Her by Samantha Towle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another enjoyable read by Samantha Towle. I enjoyed the story and the connection between the characters. Under Her kept me up until the early hours of the morning, even though I was sick and needed sleep.

my only minor quibble is that the ending felt rushed. Other than that, I really enjoyed it.

Reviews ~ #Heart, #Holiday & #Bae by Cambria Hebert

#Heart (Hashtag, #6)#Heart by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Back to the standard of books 1,2, and 3! I loved all four characters again in this book. I thought Braeden and Ivy were back to how they originally came across and I much preferred them to in #Selfie and #Poser. I also loved having Rimmel ad Romeo's POV back.

Couldn't put it down!

#Holiday (Hashtag, #6.5)#Holiday by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sweet little novella that was perfect over the Christmas period. It gave me an extra few pages on these characters and complimented the series.

#Bae (Hashtag, #7)#Bae by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great conclusion. I'm sad this series is over but it felt right.

Now to take a break from reading to recover.

I would highly recommend this series.
