Finding My Prince Charming (Finding My Prince Charming, #1) by J.S Cooper - Book Review

Published May 27th 2014

Can a Playboy Prince ever be tamed?

When Lola Franklin decided to study abroad she never anticipated embarking on a whirlwind weekend romance with a hot guy before classes started.

And she certainly never counted on the hot guy being her new professor. Or a Prince. Or the biggest asshole she had ever met.

Xavier Van Romerius is the playboy Prince of Europe and he loves his life. He doesn’t do relationships, and never wants to get married. But when he see’s Lola Franklin flirting with his little brother Casper, he realizes that maybe he needs to rethink his ideas about love before the wrong Prince gets the girl.

Book Review:

Isn't this cover so amazing??? Hells Yes! I'm in the middle of a breakdown because this Prince is everything but charming... He's an asshole! But kind of an addictive asshole! The kind that you hate and love at the same time.

I can't form an exact opinion of this book because i feel like i have to read the second one in order to understand the characters and even the story well. Finding My Prince Charming will not please everyone because it's definitely rushed and very light. It's just a book about a girl (Lola) that falls in love with a manwhore who happens to be a prince and a Prince (Xavier) who falls in love with the wrong girl for him. And then add Xavier's brother (which is much nicer by the way), Sebastian, and you have this funny, romantic book with a lot of drama. 
His lips twitched and my eyes narrowed. 
" Excuse me? "
"For what am I excusing you? "
"You' re a pig".  
" Is that higher up or lower than an ass? "
I really liked Lola but damn she could be stupid! I mean can she even say no, once? Nope. From the start she's the focused student that doesn't do nothing wrong and then she has a one night stand with Xavier, who happens to be her teacher as well... YAY!! Then he starts to make her life miserable and at the same time seducing her head off! And even calling her a slut once or twice doesn't get her to hate him one bit!!  And then Sebastian comes into the big picture and Xavier gets jealous but tries not to show it. So she's the type of character that contradicts herself a lot but with a guy like that i think everyone else would too. 

Xavier... Is someone like him even allowed to become a prince? I guess. This author created the most hated and loved guy and the least eligible for a charming title ever!! But we get to see his side a few times and i just think that he's scared of caring for Lola too much because he knows that his lifestyle can ruin her... Though I seriously think he's a prick, by the way he finished this book but i really have to read the next one to see if he can redeem himself.
I wanted to pull her into my arms and ask her if she missed me. Instead, I told her I needed to talk to her about being my assistant. I needed a reason to talk to her that didn't show her how eager I was to spend more one-on-one time with her. I was Xavier, Prince of Romerius. I could have any girl I wanted. I wasn't sprung on her. Hell, no!
I cannot wait to read Taming My Prince Charming and see Lola teaching Xavier a lesson!!!

Taint by S.L Jennings - Book Review!! Is it just me or it's getting hot in here?

Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:
Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here?

Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls.
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot.
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue.
F*ck. F***ck.

For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies.  You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I?

Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores.

Book Review: 

Taint! Devious cover. Hot blurb. And a promise of an out of this world book. S.L Jennings definitely knows how to build expectation because i was jumping on my seat until i got this in my hands. And OH LORD, S.L Jennings you have ruined me because i can't get this book out of my head.

If you think this story is going to be just focused on sex the whole entire time you're partially correct. It has a lot of sex talk. A lot of wild, crazy  hot situations that will drive you mad. Justice is the guy that seduces you just with his look. Definitely not suited for the easily offended! Not that i care. I say -Read it and Enjoy it!

Justice is the biggest secret there is because you literally know nothing of him until the last pages and when you do it's a mindblown... He's so intense all the time which really does fit the sex teacher part really well. 

I knew that it was going to have some romance but i wasn't expecting it to becomes such a large part of the story. And sadly, the only thing i didn't liked about the story was the girl Justice fell in love with. Allison. I could not like her one bit. She was clueless, spoiled, irritating and had an annoying relationship with questions... Not to mention that all of the moments between her and Justice were damn cute... TOO CUTE! This Book ain't cute so it can't have cute!!  And she was one of those girls that can't decide themselves. - Now i want Justice. Now i'm married. Now i'll play with his mind a little bit. - For a girl that was sent to him to learn the art of sex she sure knows it pretty well.

Let me tell you that everyone who reads this book will devour it! It's addicting and sinful and Oh so Sexy! Good Job S.L Jennings!!!

Hothouse Flower (Calloway Sisters, #2) by Krista & Becca Ritchie... Warning: Long - Kick Ass - Review!!!

Published March 28th 2014 

ISBN 0989339262

Twenty-five-year-old Ryke Meadows knows he’s hard to love. With a billion-dollar inheritance, a track-star resume, and an alpha-male personality—he redefines the term likable asshole. But he’s not living to make friends. Or enemies. He just wants to free climb three of the toughest mountains in Yosemite without drama or interruption.

And then he receives a distressed call from a girl in Paris—a girl that he has never been allowed to have.

Daisy Calloway is eighteen. Finally. With her newfound independence, she can say goodbye to her overbearing mother and continue her modeling career. Next stop, Paris. Fashion Week begins with a bang, and Daisy uncovers the ugly reality of the industry. She wants to prove to her family that she can live on her own, but when everything spirals out of control, she turns to Ryke to keep her secrets.

As Daisy struggles to make sense of this new world and her freedom, she pushes the limits and fearlessly rides the edge. Ryke knows there’s deep hurt beneath every impulsive action. He must keep up with Daisy, and if he lets her go, her favorite motto—“live as if you’ll die today”—may just come true.

Book Review:

This was nothing short of brilliant. Hothouse Flower finally gave us the story we all have been waiting for. Daisy and Ryke and their forbidden love. But she's all grown up now so the "forbidden" part is going out the window... I cannot explain how hot this book is!

Everyone of the six are messed up. We already saw what is going on with Connor and Rose and with Lo and LIlly. Now it's time for Daisy and Ryke. Daisy is a eighteen year old which family scandals led her to hit rock bottom and Ryke has a mother who betrayed him and is in love with someone he cannot have. This is just begging for trouble!
I'm raw. 
I'm hard. 
I'm the thing you shy away from. 
So I'm warning you now. Back away. 
Because once you enter my life, I wonâ't ever let you leave.
 Ryke is so intense all the time and doesn't like to leave anything unsaid. He's fierce and determined with his career and in letting no one harming the girl he adores. He's a character that has a lot give yet and that we cannot grow tired of... I admired to see his dedication to Daisy and in making sure he never lied to his brother and always supported him. We also see him trying to come to terms with what's going on with his father being accused of mistreating Lo and if he will defend him or accuse him as everyone else. And his relationship with Daisy... Let's just say that intense doesn't begin to explain it. And there will be a lot of mindblowing sex in bikes, rooms, hospital beds and etc...
There's no way I'm with her out of circumstance. 
We chose this because nothing else felt right. 
Nothing else felt as good. 
Our greatest happiness has always been with each other.

This is a book that will open Daisy's eyes and make her go after what she truly wants and we already knew that it wasn't fashion. I loved this girl from day one... Her impulsiveness and her wildness. She's awesome but she also depressed since that photographer entered her room and since her friends turned on her. So we see her in some really low points that only Ryke can help with. There is also a new side of Daisy that we never seen. The sadness that she carries. She's never wants to bother people with her problems and she was always fine with that but now we see how she would really react to not letting her problems out. Daisy is definitely a character that will always surprise us and makes us laugh with lame pick up lanes and provocative t-shirts. 
Ryke Meadows has invigorated my body and soul. 
He is more than just my pillow. 
My wolf. 
My bodyguard. 
He's my everything.
Yes!! LIlly and LO! You will not believe the bumpy road ahead of Lilly and LO. It's sad one minute with Lo's relapsing and drinking and happy the next when they are together... Yes, unfortunately we will see Lo relapsing because of all the tabloids stating that he was abused by his father, but also get to see that he has all the support in the world to help him get through it. And Lilly?. She has a secret this time that blows up in the last chapters... But you have to read it to believe it!

Rose and Connor are on fire. They maintain this fight throughout the whole book to see who's the last man standing and it's freaking adorable. I know that they should not be described as adorable, but they are. In this book Rose is moody as hell because of another secret and she and Lo are going to explode sooner or later, so just wait for it... And Connor is more humble than never!!! NOT. Love. Love. Love the chemistry between these two and all the changes Hothouse Flower will bring them.
"Not according to the smartest guy in the goddamn room." 
"The world" Connor corrects him, hiding his anger from my brother. "Being smarter than the three of you really isn't that big of an achievement." He pauses. "No offense." 
"I'm fucking offended," I retort. 
"Oh, sorry," he says flatly. "I don't really care about your feelings." 
 Lo shoots us a look. "Now's not the time for you both to go at it."
Oh parents... Always screwing up thinking about what's best for your kids... If Samantha was real i was going to kill that woman!! And what i really loved? Greg and Jonathan are going to shine a bit and actually prove that they are good guys... AS hard as it seems, Jonathan will redeem himself a little. 

Hothouse Flower is a dream. A wonderfull dream filled with Bumpy Roads, Motorcycle rides, Tents and Hotel Rooms, Fights and Sex that will blow our minds. It's reckless and intense and so amazing.

Kiss The Sky (Calloway Sisters, #1) by Krista & Becca Ritchie Review... Perfetct!!

Published January 24th 2014

ISBN 0989339254

Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed. Reality TV, be prepared.

Rose Calloway thought she had everything under control. At twenty-three, she’s a Princeton graduate, an Academic Bowl champion, a fashion designer and the daughter of a Fortune 500 mogul. But with a sex addict as a sister and roommate, nothing comes easy.

After accepting help from a producer, Rose agrees to have her life filmed for a reality television show. The Hollywood exec is her last chance to revive her struggling fashion line, and boundaries begin to blur as she’s forced to make nice with a man who always has his way.

Twenty-four-year-old Connor Cobalt is a guy who bulldozes weak men. He’s confident, smart-as-hell and lives with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Rose Calloway. Connor has to find a way to protect Rose without ruining the show. Or else the producer will get what Connor has always wanted—Rose’s virginity.

Book Review:

CAN THIS BOOK BE MORE PERFECT? Hells NO! First Things first... When i saw the "Her love life is about to be Reality TV" i was like: You're shitting me. This is going to be SWEET! No way i envisioned Rose Calloway and Connor making reality TV mainly because they were too smart for that... But did it work? YES! This book has all the components of addiction: Hot sex, Dominant Alpha Males and Smartass Attitudes that will make cursing look like child's play... Be aware.
People hope to touch the sky. 
I dream of kissing it.

I loved the Addicted series but Krista & Becca Ritchie took it up a notch with Kiss the Sky. It has all the elements and characters of the previous books all stuck in a house where we will get to see them in their worse... But out of that pressure that they will have to endure it will make all the love and friendship they share be seen really up close. I don't know how these writers did it but they created six characters with personalities rivaling a thunderstorm that happen to get along... Most of the times. 

Let's start with Rose, our main girl. From the beginning she has her TAG as "VIRGIN". She ain't afraid of admitting it and Connor is going to change that and give us a little surprise... We are so used to see Rose in charge and dictating things that when she becomes a submissive in the bedroom (yes submissive) we will see Rose as we never seen before. More delicate, more vulnerable and even more lovable. But don't get me wrong because Rose will never lose the competitive spark that we love her for. And in this book she will have her life thrown upside down with her business growing, scandals blowing and really nasty people making her life difficult with each chapter. But Sex with Connor kind of makes up for that... 

Connor always liked to win but now it a full out battle with Rose about who gets to be in charge in the bedroom. I always liked Connor but the book never gave us really personal intel on him which never let me figure him out. Kiss the Sky will let us see the vulnerable side of Connor. We will see him mad, happy and very in love.
I had no one before Rose. No true friends. No family, not really. 
Now I have her. I have people I care about it. People that I want to protect. 
Now I have everything. 
The only thing about having everything is that you can lose it all.
Lo and Lilly had to be a must in the book and i'm so happy to see that their addictions are easier for them to handle now. They are more happy and just enjoying being with each other. But they will still get their ups and downs mainly because they'll have cameras following them everywhere they go and people sabotaging their recovery... 

I am so curious to see where the chemistry between Daisy and Ryke will lead them... I can totally see them as a couple and screw the age difference!!! The are so protective of each other and it's so endearing the way they talk, the way the share looks... And i really want to see Ryke fall in love like a puppy. Muahahah.

Kiss the Sky it's unexpected and so refreshing. It's a wonderful job by two amazing writers that have successfully won over my heart.
