Reviving Izabel (In the Company of Killers, #2) J.A. Redmerski

4... I love revenge stars!!

Breakable: Tammara Webber

5 Stars!

This was not a rehash of Easy at all. The reader got to see Landon/Lucas growing up and learn how he became the person he did. Tammara has a way with words and she made you feel like you were really living in his head. Definitely one of my favorite reads this year.

I would love to get a story about Boyce and Pearl!

Review...Tumbleweed by: Julia Bramer Caution...slight spoilers

TumbleweedI received an Arc for an honest review... 4.5-4.75 stars!

Haley is an eighteen year old photographer that sets out to travel the world and capture it on camera. Shortly after she arrives in Spain she meets famous soccer star Mikel and they quickly fall in love. She catches him being unfaithful after being gone for a night and runs off leaving everything behind. She sinks deep into depression until her best friend comes to visit and sets out to relieve some of her heartache. After some partying and a brief sexual encounter with another soccer player she has found away to numb her pain...drinking and sex.

Haley becomes a shell of the person she was, cruel and indifferent to the world and the people she meets. A few years have past and she's become successful and wealthy. She has traveled the world and is set to explore and photograph Egypt. She meets two Egyptian men that serve as guides and quickly sets out to seduce them. She is successful in her plans but in the height of the revolution something terrible happens and her plan is discovered...

***slight spoiler***

This story was amazing, it was definitely steamy but also very heart wrenching and at times hard to read. The only reason I didn't give it the full five stars was because I hate cheating! I fell in love with Mikel and the love he had for Haley so when he was caught sleeping with someone else it broke my heart.

The writer did an awesome job at character development and my heart ached for Haley while reading this book. There were times I wanted to despise her and the person she became but I couldn't.

Thank you to the author for providing me a copy of this wonderful story!

Review 21 Days by Bethany Lopez (Time for Love) series book 2

 21 Days (Time for Love, #2) by: Bethany Lopez... 4 stars

Arc provided for an honest review...

TJ and Sasha have been friends for years they banter often and there's always been a sexual tension between them. After TJ loses his job and is in need of a place to stay Sasha graciously offers him to stay with her. He agrees as long as they put a time frame on his stay which is 21 days. After a few nights of sexual tension between the both of them they decide to have a no strings attached relationship for the 21 days he is staying with her; deciding that after it's all done they will continue to be friends, no hurt feelings and just go back to the way they were. They also agreed that if either one of them starts to develop feelings or is becoming attached to the other one they would tell them and be open and honest about it. As the weeks go by and their time together is coming to an end their friends with benefits relationship is developing into something more. They've admitted their feelings to their friends but not to each other for fear of the other ones reaction.

I thought this was such a sweet story I loved both of the characters. I also enjoyed hearing about the group of friends we were introduced to in 8 weeks. It was nice to hear about them and see that Cal and Shelley have moved on together happily. I did however miss the banter between Sasha and TJ. I'm looking forward to Scott and Gaby's story.
