Book Review: Running into Love by Aurora Rose Reynolds

  This book was just what I was looking for, it was super good. I love Aurora Rose Reynolds writing. She draws you into the story and makes you feel what the characters are feeling. This story was no different, really well written, I really enjoyed it and had a hard time putting it down. It wasn’t super angsty, it had a great story line and was like reading a story about people you know falling in love. It was an easy read that drew me in and I didn’t want it to end.

So you have this kinda crazy really awesome heroine, Fawn and the fantastic Alpha male hero Levi. She is a teacher and he is an NYPD homicide detective, they also end up being neighbors. Oh what a small world it is really. These two had the chemistry that makes me love reading as much as I do. They had that spark that gives you butterflies and makes you root for them even when you don’t have too. I loved them together!

“I like you, I like that you’re a little bit crazy and a whole lot blind, but until I know you understand exactly what’s happening between us, there is no way I’ll take you to my bed.” Blinking at him, I try to understand exactly what the hell he’s saying, but all I can focus on is the fact that he called me crazy and blind. “I’m not crazy or blind.”

“Gorgeous, you’re so fucking stuck in your own head, you can’t see straight.”

 

The way they meet is hilarious and makes the whole first chapter pretty funny. I liked all the characters, even the secondary characters, it’s definitely set up that the secondary characters could get their own books which is awesome cause I’d like to spend more time with these crazy girl’s. I feel like if they were real we would totally have drinks and enjoy great nights out together haha. Both their families are a bit crazy and it adds to the hilarious antics that happen throughout the story. This book had a little bit of everything laughter, swooning moments, family, love, and some seriously hot moments. A really well done read and totally worth the time to get to know everyone.

 

“Jesus!” I finally get a grip on the cord and pull, which tugs the earphones out of her ears, and her body stills. “Are you crazy?” I grit out, and her eyes move over me, then to the cord in my hand.

“Oh shit. Oops!” she pants, covering her face with her hands. Oops? Is this chick for real?

I thought with how Aurora’s writing is, the suspense would be a bit more but in this story it was a little down played compared to her usual. However it worked in this story, this was a true love story and the whole story line worked really well all together. If you’re looking for a fun, easy read that portrays a great Alpha and two wonderful character’s falling in love I suggest this book. I enjoyed every second of reading and can’t wait to get into the rest of the character’s stories that I really hope she writes. Do yourself a favor and read this story and just lose yourself in love for a little bit, I’m sure you’ll love it too!

Happy Reading!

“You stole my heart and my breath the day you ran into me,” I say simply, and she pulls back, wiping away the tears on her cheeks.

“Who would have thought running with your eyes closed would lead to love?” she asks, and I grin at her

Review: Trixsters Anonymous by Ahren Sanders

   This is a comedy romance and has some very funny moments in it. I enjoyed the funny moments, the friendship and the romance throughout this book. However, this is something I never say about a book, but it was maybe a bit too long. There were a few times when nothing was really happening and it just kinda dragged for a bit. There was also the whole “secret” about trixters that the heroine kept from the hero, which I understood keeping their identities a secret but not from the man you fell in love with especially since he’s a detective and could have given you help in some areas. That being said the story was good, funny, sexy and had some action too, so that made the few issues I had with it easier to take.

“What about the time you wrecked your father’s car because—”

“That was an honest mistake. I thought there was a snake in the car.” I shudder at the memory. It was one moment in my life I thought I was going to have a complete heart attack. How was I to know he’d recently bought a new garden hose? A black garden hose closely resembles a snake.

So the story starts with Emi helping her friend Maren get rid of her cheating fiancée and because they were so good at finding the dirt and getting the evidence to prove it they decide to start Trixsters Anonymous. A company on the internet to help others find dirt on the person they are worried about cheating or what not. Walker sees Emi at a bar and is drawn to her, then she shows up at the police station throwing all holy hell about her car being vandalized and Walker steps up to help her out. In starts the romance and the hilarious antics of Emi and Maren.

His lips hover over mine, and when he speaks, his warm breath coats my lips. “My house, your sweet ass, and no more sass.” He doesn’t kiss me before shoving away and slamming my door.

Walker has that alpha male thing going and it really works for him. I really enjoyed his character. Emi was a little different, parts I liked and others got on my nerves. Being in her head wasn’t as great as being in Walker’s. She was funny, a little outrageous, a little overdramatic but it worked for her unless she was being stubborn and thought she should be the first to get answers about thing others had only just discovered but that goes hand in hand with the overdramatic so maybe I’m being too hard on her character in some points. All in all it was a good read, the funny parts over road the parts that got on my nerves.

I will say that it’s nice to read a book especially a romantic comedy that any drama was mostly within the story as opposed to the relationship. Once these two decided to go for it they were in it and it wasn’t unnecessary angst between them with miscommunication and what not. That part was refreshing (I’m kinda tired of the break up at the end for no reason just for them to get back together). That wasn’t the case in this book and I liked it!

It also had some action between the Trixsters business and Walker being a detective and I do like some mystery and action in my books, which made me happier with the book. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in a good comedy romance with an alpha male! I think this could turn into a series so I’m going to keep an eye out for the next book because I would be interested in Maren’s story. Happy Reading!

“I told you once, it was my mission in life to make you happy, and I take that job very seriously.”

“You make me deliriously happy.”

“And it’s going to stay that way, forever.”

Review: The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones

  Hmmmmmm what can I say about this book? I was super excited about reading this and unfortunately it fell a bit flat for me. I loved the first book  The Silver Swan, and was so excited to learn more about this F’ed up world, but there really wasn’t any answers just more questions. I anticipated this book would build the Elite Kings up and we would learn so much but that never really happened. At the end of the previous book Madison had run away and I thought YES now we’ll get our answers but nope it was a bit choppy her being away and then she just up and came back when she was told but with the mentality that she was going to play their game but get her answers.

Yes. I don’t trust them at all. Though I’m probably dreaming, I’ve never gone down without a fight, so it’s my turn to start playing the dealer, and these boys are about to become my pawns.

Madison says this but never lives up to it. And when she asks questions she never gets an answer and just leaves it at that. It’s super frustrating, she just lets these people walk all over her and play her but doesn’t do anything about it, but she’s supposed to be this bad ass bitch and that never really comes through. Also “the book” situation is super frustrating because she has a lot of the answers she needs in this huge book and has read like 11 pages! She was gone for 2 months moping and being critical about why she left but instead of reading the book in full to get a lot of her answers she just lets “the book” sit there. I actually really enjoyed Madison in the first book this book took a whole new turn for me and I’m not really enjoying her as much.

“Trust no one. Fear no one. Fuck everyone,” 

Great moto to live by if she actually stuck by it! All this aside the story drew me in and I wanted to find out what happened next but was a little disappointed with the lack of answers and even story line really. It just kinda ran in circles. There is clearly going to be another book since this ended on another cliffy (which I hate by the way), however I’m a little apprehensive to read it. The reason for this is I think it’s going to end up an information dump, she could have answered some of the questions that NEED answers in this book so we would have something to look forward to in the next but so far this book almost seemed like filler. I think I should have stuck with my normal routine of waiting for all books in a series to be out then binge read them because right now I’m feeling pretty let down. There were a few discoveries that go a long way into figuring out what is happening, and it’s a sign of good writing when you can’t guess, and right now I have no idea what is going to come of all of this. However I do look forward to the last and final book so we can get the answers I just hope it isn’t an info dump with too much going on that we have a hard time understanding it all. At the end the author has this to say:

 Tacet a Mortuis (Whispers from the Dead), the final book told from Madison, and now, Bishop, coming soon.

I think it will be good to get into Bishop’s head a bit in the next one, maybe some insight into his crazy will give us some answers haha.

Now one thing that I read in reviews before I read the first book was that it was a little unbelievable with them being in high school and during the first one I kinda enjoyed that they were, it just gave it a bit more of a “fun” factor. Not so much in this one, to me it was a little over the top that Bishop is this high powerful person who is in high school and it’s not just the school he’s running but he is “so much more”. Not that we have those answers yet because that’s all glossed over. If you’ve read the Silver Swan then I suggest you read this one too but I think it’s more of a lead into the final book so don’t go in thinking you’ll learn much. There are some pretty big reveals that you’ll need to know going into the third book. I like the story line and am interested in the third book NOW so I can have all my questions answered. I would recommend this series, it is interesting but this book didn’t have me on the edge of my seat yelling that I love it as much as the first book did. Happy Reading!

Here is my review for The Silver Swan if you missed it!
