My Review (ARC provided)

Another FIVE stars for Meghan!!!


The Strike Out is just the book I needed to bring in the New Year, and surprise surprise it’s Meghan Quinn! It seems like the past few New Years I’ve gotten the pleasure of reading one of her books. Everyone needs a little Holt Green in their life, in fact, I texted my bestie just that, “you need Holt Green in your life.” He was the perfect mix of everything you’d want in a man; funny, dirty, sweet, charming, hot, and cocky. I have been dying for Holt’s story, wondering who his mystery girl was that was locker room material. I remember reading The Locker Room wanting more of him and we finally got it! And let me tell you the story of Holt and Harmony is so worth the wait.

Harmony is a strong feisty girl that has her guard up and for good reason, she’s been burned before and works so hard to make ends meet. She needs to get through school and hold a job so that she can pay for her education. Holt is the exact reason she has her guard up, an athlete, rich, and on scholarship. He’s too arrogant and privileged to be in her life. Or is he? His persistence has her breaking down her walls but he needs to prove to her that he isn’t who she’s chalked him up to be.

I loved the story of their relationship and how Holt wouldn’t let up. He knew what he wanted and went for it. I also love the text messaging Meghan always puts in her books, they crack me up and always have me smiling. Harmony and Holt made such a perfect couple with their banter and sexual chemistry. I could go on and on but you need to read to experience the quintessential couple that Harmony and Holt are.

TheStrikeOut_collage-5

BLURB:

It started with one night out with the boys.

She was the hot diner waitress putting herself through school.

I was the rich, arrogant player everyone misjudges.

On paper we didn’t match.

Yet all it took was one day. One single day to change her mind.

She wasn’t planning to spend her day off with me.

She wasn’t supposed to fall for my charm.

But one day, one smile, turned into several nights of her calling out my name.

I’m not the guy she should end up with. I’m jealous, possessive. Not here for a long time - just a good time.

She’s changed me.

But, for some reason, I feel her slipping through my fingers and no matter what I do, I fear I’m going to strike out with the one and only girl I’ve ever fallen for.

EXCERPT:

“Four patty melts, then?” Harmony asks, with a little more attitude in her voice than before.

“That would be—”

“Is there something wrong?” I ask, interrupting Knox before he can say something douchey like “that would be lovely.” 

“Nope.” She pops the P with a snap of her lips and refuses to look at any of us.

“Then the patty melts would be—”

“Do you have something against us being on the baseball team?” I ask, turning my entire body toward her. Carson groans. He becomes “ravenous” when he’s drunk, and I know all he wants is his patty melt with a plateful of fries, but I want some answers first. 

The stigma on campus is that the players on the Brentwood baseball team are entitled assholes—which might be true for some of the players who’ve worked through the system, but not for us. There’s also a good chance, at least once a day, that we run into a student on campus who hates us. Didn’t think it would happen before school started. 

“Dude, you’re so aggressive right now,” Knox says. “Maybe she just—”

“Yeah, I do.” Harmony props her hand on her hip. 

“Okay, never mind.” Knox leans back in his booth and folds his arms over his chest. 

“Let me guess,” I say in an irritated and affronted tone. “You think we’re a bunch of entitled assholes who rule the campus and don’t deserve half the benefits we receive for being on the team.”

She folds her arms as well and with a whole lot of sass, she says, “Yeah, I do. Your expensive stadium, equipment, staff, and full-ride scholarships eat up half the tuition on this campus, leaving nothing for us peasants. You’re obnoxious, self-righteous, and think the world revolves around you. Meanwhile, the rest of the students around you work at shitty diners, earning low wages, serving drunk morons like you at all hours of the night, just to put ourselves through college so we can earn a degree, graduate to a shitty job that won’t pay for our student loans, and wind up in debt with the rest of the country.”

Yikes

Silence falls. What do you say to that? 

Clearly, she’s bitter, but with the passion flaming in her eyes and the claws ready to shoot from her fingertips, I think I should slowly back away. 

Jason takes that moment to appear from the bathroom, and he sits with a resounding plop. He glances around and asks, “Did you order me a patty melt?”

Rolling her eyes, Harmony takes off toward the kitchen, leaving us concerned. Is she going to put in our order? Because we want our patty melts.

  Blurb: All I wanted for Christmas was a date… I posted one personal ad on a free, dark web dating site. I expected a Nigerian Prince who wanted my bank account number or a phishing scam. I didn’t expect to receive lavish gifts from a beautiful stranger. A plane ticket. A weeklong vacation in Bora Bora. Saying yes to everything was easy because in exchange for my insane compliance, he agreed to be my date home for Christmas. Except when I arrive in paradise I realize he isn’t just a beautiful stranger. He’s Italian royalty—an actual freaking Prince! He’s also a world-famous porn star. Falling for an untouchable man isn’t advisable, but then again this was only supposed to be The Christmas Con. A standalone, steamy, Christmas Novella.         About the Author: Rachel Robinson grew up in a small, quiet town full of loud talkers. Her words were always only loud on paper. She has been writing stories and creating characters for as long as she can remember. After living on the west coast for many years, she now resides in Colorado with her husband, two children, and her hairless cat.

A Bridge Between Us by: K. K. Allen is out now!

 

“Raw. Gripping. Electrifying. A Bridge Between Us will awaken your soul and set flight to your heart. I couldn’t put it down.” — Kandi Steiner, Bestselling Author

A Bridge Between Us, an all-new small-town romance full of suspense from USA Today bestselling author K.K. Allen is available now!

I had always known he wasn’t mine to keep, but that didn’t change the way I loved him—quietly, gently, and from afar.

As the seasons changed, the corn stalks grew strong, and the grapevines flourished with hope. But none of it mattered, not when the soil at our feet bound us in a century-old rivalry. We’d never even had a chance.

They said life flashed before your eyes on the way to death, but on that night, after my final scream burst from my throat and my world started to fade to black, I only thought of him. Of his sweet chocolate eyes, his desperately cautious stare, and his silence that carried more weight than gold.

I should have died that night. Instead, I crossed the moonlit bridge and never returned.
I let rivalry win. If only that had been enough to keep us all safe. If only we didn’t have a bridge between us.

My review (ARC provided)

4-4.5 stars!


This story is so well told and gives us on a journey from young kids to, teenagers, and then to adulthood. It’s kind of a friends to lovers/forbidden/second chance romance with a ton of suspense thrown in. I will say the only reason why I didn’t give it a full five stars was because I thought the beginning of the book dragged a bit, but after the first 25% it picked up and I couldn’t put it down. I was rooting for them all while everything and everyone was tearing them apart.


You will find yourself trying to piece together the puzzle of  “who did it?’ And coming up with many scenarios. This book is gripping and leaves you on the edge of your seat. 


What will happen when a boy and a girl want to end a century-old rivalry? When that boy and girl are supposed to be rivals?


It’s push and pull throughout the whole story and Camila and Ridge is the definition of a soulmate, but nothing goes their way and everything gets in their way. Camila is strong and determined from her first introduction right until the very end. I love what a strong passionate character she is. And Ridge is the quiet observer that lets Camila “Wild One” have her light. He loves her for her and her strength, he is courageous in a reserved way and they just play off of each other in the best way possible.


“She was a storm, always bringing unpredictable weather with her.”


“I think I fell in love with Ridge’s eyes before I fell in love with his soul, his heart, or his mind.”


This is a beautifully written story that will have you wanting more at the end and thinking about it long after you’ve finished.

I had a plan, and it was solid.
 
Track down what was hidden away and take pleasure in toying with it. 
Toying with her. 
 
That plan, it worked like a charm.
Until it didn’t. 
 
Turned out, the feisty little thing I found was far from what I hoped for. 
She was different from all I knew and more than I expected.
 
She was light, and I’m the bastard who led her into darkness.
But this girl... she followed with a smile.
 
I told her I break pretty things.
She asked me to promise.
