Summary:

Cutting all ties, Kayla Montgomery drives cross-country to Los Angeles. New start. New life. And an unexpected new job: assistant to Justin Beckett.

The Justin Beckett.

The boy band rebel with the cocky attitude and dreamy bed head who casts a spell over his fans and tests the patience of his handlers.

Now at the peak of Mount Adulthood, he has to build a clean-cut, movie star image. It’s in his contract. No partying. No attitude. No groupies.

To tie it together, he needs a normal girl.

Suddenly, Kayla’s swept up in Justin’s glamorous world, and his arms. But the most dizzying thing is Justin himself. Sweet, generous, reliable, and as eager to shed his past as Kayla is hers.

About that…

Those ties she thought she’d cut? They’ve followed her across the country with her secrets in tow, and they’re about to test Kayla’s courage, Justin’s loyalty, and a love that wasn’t part of the deal.

Summary:

Caitlyn always thought she was just your average small-town waitress, but she’s anything but average. Suffering from frequent headaches and vivid daydreams, her oddities mask a secret hidden deep within her mind—one that could defeat even the cleverest of psychics.

When a mysterious circus arrives in town, Caitlyn is immediately drawn to it. While visiting the hypnotic show, she meets a seer who warns her of a gruesome future and urges her to stay away. But soon, Caitlyn finds herself ensnared in the show and the Ringmaster himself.

Recognizing Caitlyn’s powers for what they are, and believing they are the ones he has been searching for, the Ringmaster is determined to claim them as his own. Trapped within the circus and the Ringmaster’s devious grip, Caitlyn realizes that to escape the seer’s foretold fate, her only choice is to fight. Banding together with Bevier, an imprisoned psychic, Meg, an eccentric seamstress, and Daniel, a handsome magician, Caitlyn falls into the Psychic Realm to thwart the Ringmaster and stop the show before they succumb to his control and are trapped forever in his spectacle of souls.

Title: A Love Song for Dreamers (Rivals Series #3)
Author: Piper Lawson
Genre: Rockstar Romance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Love Song For Dreamers AKA Addictive page-turning read for emos. 

I cried. 

In a bunch of different places–so what the hell, Piper Lawson, you couldn’t break my heart without stealing a bunch of pieces?

The last chapter in the Annie and Tyler saga is oh so good. I can’t believe that I once withheld a book boyfriend award from Tyler because this guy is just so deserving! Annie, on the other hand? I really don’t understand people who think success is happiness. So a third of this book is Greek to me.

A Love Song for Dreamers picks up just moments after A Love Song for Rebels ends. This book deals with the aftermath of that particular night and Annie’s ongoing chip-on-her-shoulder. How she can see anything around that thing is AH-MAZING. She is the least reliable narrator in this story because everything she experiences needs to be put through the how did I get it, and what does it do for me test. The character is unlikeable. Tyler, you can do better, dude.

Title: A Queen’s Pride (Feline Nation #1)
Author: N.D. Jones
Genre: Urban Fantasy
My rating:
4 of 5 stars

What a timely read.

Asha is the Heir of the Kingdom of Shona. Her parents, Khalid Bambara and Sekham Zarina are the Alphas of the Kingdom. The protectors. They are who stand between their people and the corrupt humans of the Republic of Vumaris. These humans are willing to do anything to acquire more land and power, and shedding blood is only the start.

There are some massive concepts within these pages. N.D. Jones looks at the dynamics of family, race, class, politics, governmental overreaching, and self-sacrifice to start. The idea that humans will use brute force over cunning to acquire power is loud and clear.

There are many trigger alerts in this book due to the realism, despite the magical genre. I warn readers for torture, sexual content, brutal violence, and mental health issues resulting from PTSD. A Queen’s Pride isn’t a YA book.

But it is compelling and delicious, an addictive page-turner.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.

Summary:

Roksana, heiress to the vampire slayer throne, has performance anxiety. 

She’s supposed to kill Elias, but so far she’s only succeeded in maxing out his credit card. Now her failure to stake the brooding vampire has sent her back to Moscow in disgrace to face her mother’s wrath. Expecting punishment by death, she’s given a rare reprieve. She now has three tasks to complete, the last of which is to finally kill Elias. She will not fail this time. 

If only the memories of one magical evening—back when Elias was human—would stop holding her back. He claims to have forgotten that night. Why can’t she?

Three years ago, Elias was a SWAT team member on a guy’s weekend in Vegas. Playing poker and minding his own business, his life changed forever when a captivating blonde strolled past his table in a light-up bra. He followed Roksana as if compelled, his very bones demanding he do so, his soul resonating with the belief she would be important to him. Always. That turned out to be a vast understatement—and nothing has changed.  

Roksana embarks on her mission, determined to win back her mother’s approval, but when an astonishing truth emerges in the eleventh hour, will her stake pierce the very heart that beats in her honor? Or will love triumph over duty?

Title: The Redpoint Crux
Author: Morgan Shamy
Genre: Gothic Fiction

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book isn’t for me. How do I know? Because I read it and it bored me to tears. 20% in I almost DNF’ed it, but I stuck with it only to skim through the remainder of the book reading it in chunks. Nothing much happens.

The book starts with two disjointed tales; one is Megan Tucker’s in Colorado, and the other is Liam Reynolds and the Theater Company in Nova Scotia–two teenage rebels who are grabbing the world with both hands. Megan ‘Red’ Tucker is a ballerina gone mountain climber well off the beaten path. Liam is a prodigal son who has come back to claim his family’s legacy. But nothing much happens chapter after chapter to advance the story but monotonous exposition and reiteration.

Release Date:

Summary:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan comes a sexy new contemporary stand-alone series.

Hazel Noble has survived horrors she wouldn’t inflict on her worst enemy. Since then, she’s healed, found herself, and connected with a group of women she’s proud to call her friends. However, when they make a pact to start looking for love, Hazel finds herself not only up first but also forced to face a past she thought she’d escaped.

Cross Brady has no need for a relationship. As the oldest of five, he’s always been the one his family can rely on. Now, all he wants is to work in peace and live his life. His priorities shift dramatically, though, when Cross finds himself in Hazel’s path.

Though the two initially fight their connection, they soon learn that it’s safer to fall for each other than keep running from what’s holding them back—not to mention, who wants them dead.
