Blogger Wife Chat Review/Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #157 ~ Rock F*ck Club #3 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review/Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts #157 ~ Rock F*ck Club #3 ~ Michelle Mankin

Holy Hotness! I do believe Rock F*ck Club #3 is Mankin’s hottest book to date! It had to up the ante to follow up Raven and Lucky’s story and Mankin delivered! Mankin always takes on weighty topics and Rock F*ck Club is no exception. How do you think she did with exploring a woman’s right to explore her sexuality, self-worth, and true friendship? I think she did really well! And that’s mostly because she showed us that it’s still a struggle. I think in many cases, women have to struggle no matter if they are dealing with a man or a woman. I also enjoyed how part of this story was a true eye-opener to Marsha. Who had kind of […]

Review: The Chase – Elle Kennedy

Review: The Chase – Elle Kennedy

The Chase was so good! My emotions were totally involved from the start, and I have to say that Fitz and Summer were the perfect couple. The introvert with the shining star made me all hot and bothered – plus they made me laugh. Story: We got a little glimpse of Summer and Fitz in Kennedy’s last Off Campus novel, and I was so excited for The Chase. My excitement was completely warranted, too, and right now, all I want to do is squee with happiness. I loved this first foray into the new series, because the characters were so refreshing. I loved how Summer tried to better herself. After struggling with dyslexia her whole life, coming to a new […]

Release Day Chat Review ~ Children of the Forgotten Gods ~ Kennedy Daly #2018NewRelease #COYER

Release Day Chat Review ~ Children of the Forgotten Gods ~ Kennedy Daly  #2018NewRelease #COYER

Thank you so much for turning me onto this book, wifey! It was a fantastic read! It was action-packed with a compelling story and engaging characters. Gah! I FLOVED it! What I need to know is: When is the next one coming?!? Okay, on to the chat… I was hooked from the beginning, and I know you were as well. What was it that drew you straight into this story? I think I was initially drawn in with the action…Daly had me curious from the get-go about Damien. But the characters are what, or rather who, really drew me in. I liked how close-knit they were and I was intrigued with their abilities, their dynamics, and their responsibilities to their […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #2 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #2 ~ Michelle Mankin

Since both Lexxie and I are fans of #girlpower we figured MMankin’s Rock F*ck Club #2 was a great way to kick off our joint venture. We hope y’all enjoy our chat! And keep an eye on our Facebook page today…there might be a giveaway! 😉 B: What did you think about how MMankin presented Rock F*ck Club #2? The end-of-season perspective? The challenges Lucky and Raven were facing and how they were dealing with them? L: I really found the after-filming to be very interesting. Especially because so much had changed between Lucky and Raven. And her outlook on life and relationships had done a full 180. It was also good to see that while she was worried about […]

Review: Angry Annie – Dawn L. Chiletz

Review: Angry Annie – Dawn L. Chiletz

Angry Annie was a hoot! It kept me company on the plane back from Denver and BookBonanza, and I had so many laugh out loud moments. Story: Angry Annie was such a fun romantic comedy, and my first foray (but definitely NOT the last!) into Chiletz’s books. Joselyn had goals, but she had strange ways of going about achieving them. Trying to figure out who Annie was, and why her reviews were always so angry, became her new goal. She wanted to show the world what a sorry person Annie was – but things didn’t go as planned. As Angry Annie unfolded, Joselyn found herself actually liking the older woman. Even when Annie was difficult and short tempered, she told […]

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Dear Bridget, I Want you is a fun and sexy read – and it was even more so because I buddy-read it with my blogger wife, Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee. Lexxie: Hello dahling 🙂 I loved Dear Bridget!!! And I’m happy you did, too! I’ll put my comments underneath yours 😉 Brandee: I’m so happy we decided to buddy-read this one, wifey. I really enjoyed it. I felt Keeland and Ward did well in fleshing out the characters, creating a compelling story, and combining humor with some serious-ness as well. Lexxie : I loved that we were able to buddy-read this, too – FINALLY, right? They did flesh out the characters, and the humor had me laughing really hard – […]

Review: Oceanside – Michelle Mankin

Review: Oceanside – Michelle Mankin

Oceanside brings real problems, real heartache, and real relationships to the surface. Because of the way these subjects were treated, I was totally immersed in the story, as it made the characters very real to me. Story: Oceanside starts with a flashback, which brings Ash and Fanny’s first meeting to the reader’s attention. It was a great first meeting – who else has met someone at the Oscar’s just before they both were to perform? This happened in 2012, but the main action happens in 2015, after Fanny’s life has completely changed. No longer in the spotlight, she wants a more quiet life. A life where she can make her own decisions. Where she can do what she loves. Up […]

Review: Remember When – T. Torrest

Review: Remember When – T. Torrest

I just loved Remember When! it was almost like time capsule for me in many ways, even if I was across the ocean, many things, like the parties and the friendships were so similar. (un)conventionally short: Who hasn’t wondered what happened with the one who got away? And what if he has become famous since way back when? Remember When touched on both of these subjects, and it was a different kind of second chance at love story, too. Torrest managed to bring me straight back to the 90s, and I think that helped me feel so connected to Layla and Trip. Part of Remember When is the 90s, when Layla and Trip first met. Then, there is a separation […]

Review: F*ck Love – Tarryn Fisher

Review: F*ck Love – Tarryn Fisher

F*ck Love was like a blast to the heart in many ways – and I felt so much for Helena – like the whole spectre of feels was present thanks to her. (un)conventionally short: Yeah, exactly that! A real quick review, even if F*ck Love deserves a long-winded one. I am just so very late in writing reviews these days. This story was almost like a parallel universe at the beginning, I wasn’t sure what was real and what was not. Helena was in a relationship that she wasn’t fully happy in. She needed to ask herself some important questions in order to move forward with her life. The Writing in F*ck Love is fantastic, Fisher spins beautiful stories with […]

Series Review : Tristan & Danika – R. K. Lilley

Series Review : Tristan & Danika – R. K. Lilley

Bad Things shows just how bad things can come when love can’t conquer all. Gripping story with characters who broke my heart. The whole Tristan & Danika series is set in the same universe as Lilley’s Up in the Air series. And I was intrigued by Tristan and Danika’s story from when they first showed up there. Bad Things starts withe Danika and Tristan’s meeting, their incredible chemistry, and how Danika did her best to resist his bad-boy charm. At first, their story was all about falling in love, but as Bad Things unfolded, nothing was easy for them. Danika needed stability, and Tristan was anything but stable. He loved Danika with all his heart, but when things became difficult […]
