Vaughn Spencer.

They call him an angry god.

To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.

His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.

All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.

Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.

I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.

But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.

A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.

They say this place is haunted, and it is.

Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.

Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

Fiction Friday: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

The Hating Game

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I ordered this after seeing fanart of Feyre from “A Court of Thorns and Roses” reading it. This book certainly did not disappoint.
Lucy Hutton is everyone’s favourite good girl. Everyone except for her co-worker and office nemesis, Joshua Templeman.
From the very second that he walked into the office, Joshua has hated Lucy and so she has responded in kind.
When a promotion opportunity is announced, their competition kicks up a few notches. Lucy knows she cannot work under Josh and has to score that promotion at any cost.
But then Josh kisses her and IT IS A HELL OF A KISS.
Was it really hate between them or was it something more? And how will the promotion affect whatever it is that they have building between them?
I loved this book so very much! I devoured it and was really disappointed when it ended. Lucy and Josh have a very clear chemistry and lots of witty banter.
“The Hating Game” is well-written, funny and entertaining. This was everything!
I NEED SOMETHING SIMILAR AND IF YOU HAVE RECOMMENDATIONS, HIT ME UP!!!

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Playing the Odds by Nora Roberts (The MacGregors #1)

Playing the Odds (The MacGregors, #1)

Playing the Odds by Nora Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When career-orientated Serena MacGregor refuses to find herself a husband, her father, Daniel MacGregor steps in and sends gambler, Justin Blade to the cruise ship where she is working.
Daniel is confused that Justin and Serena will suit and he is right. Sparks fly as soon as the two of them meet.
However when his scheme is discovered, Serena is reluctant to go along with his plans.
I had mixed feelings about this book as Justin is originally a forceful ass to Serena. He is unable to take no for an answer which made me put the book down the first time I read it.
However I loved the description of life on a cruise ship and exotic travel locations so I picked it up again, prepared to ignore Justin’s stubborn ways but he eventually won me over.
I thought this was a good read and I can’t wait to read more about the colourful MacGregor family.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Finding Perfect by Colleen Hoover

Finding Perfect

Finding Perfect by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Daniel and Six once met in a closet and impulsively had sex which resulted in a pregnancy. Since it was dark and neither of them knew each other, Six gave the baby up for adoption only to unknowningly fall in love with Daniel a while later.
In “Finding Perfect”, Daniel and Six are going through a rough patch. She’s distant and he knows that their baby is part of the reason.
Desperate to reunite the woman he lives with their child, Daniel embarks on a journey to track down their baby.
I thought “Finding Cinderella” ended rather abruptly so this was the perfect ending for me. I loved returning to this world and seeing so many familiar characters especially from “All Your Perfects.”
I actually didn’t read all of “All Your Perfects” because I fell in love with Quinn and Graham from the very first page and couldn’t bear to see the sadness of their marriage in the first few pages but this book has more than made up for it.
If you’re looking for a short but emotionally charged read, this is your book.

This was a well-written, quick read that I enjoyed immensely.
Josh and Isla have very clear chemistry and it’s almost not to root for them. This book had me laughing and crying throughout.
Definitely give this a try if you are interested in a light, fun book.

New Series: Previously On

How many times have you started a book in a series only to realize you don’t remember what happened in the previous book?

For me it has been happening far more than usual so I’ve decided to make a post recapping what happened in a book. Also I was watching “The Vampire Diaries” and I love the way they say “Previously On The Vampire Diaries”. (Be still, my Nian- shipping heart).

Usually I use Wikipedia for this however Wikipedia doesn’t have all the YA or Historical Fiction that I read.

So I am starting a new series called “Previously On” which does a quick review on what happened in the previous book.

Fiction Friday: Awkward Abroad

Awkward Abroad

Awkward Abroad by Rachel Rhodes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amber has to stick it out for a year and make it on her own with the assistance of her former best friend and her father’s current employee and watchdog, Kent James.

I bought this immediately after finishing “Awkward in Print” and I loved it immensely. This book is well-written, hilarious and entertaining. It is a quick read that can be read in one sitting and I strongly recommend this book if you want something light and fun.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Awkward in Print by Rachel Rhodes

Awkward in Print

Awkward in Print by Rachel Rhodes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Hollywood starlet, Jojo Hudson releases a tell-all book about her life. Except that the one thing her “tell-all” focuses on is a complete lie.
Jojo has built her life around this lie so if it gets out, her career and her engagement both go down the drain.
But the only person who knows that Jojo is lying hasn’t been seen for years. Until the day of her book launch when he appears out of thin air.
Ace threatens to reveal everything about him and Jojo unless she breaks up with her billionaire boyfriend and pretends to date him.
Ace wants a way in to Hollywood and he is determined that Jojo be his ticket to stardom.
But as Jojo and Ace spend more time together, Ace seems more interested in her and less interested in networking with the who’s who of the industry.
This was an incredibly well-written book with lots of twists that I did not see coming. I went into this book expecting a cute, chick-lit romance but it delivered SO MUCH MORE.
I can’t say more without giving the entire book away but trust me you do NOT want to miss this.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- The Last Real Cowboy (Cold River Ranch #3) by Caitlin Crews

The Last Real Cowboy (Cold River Ranch, #3)

The Last Real Cowboy by Caitlin Crews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Amanda Kittredge has always been seen as the little Kittredge girl.
But when her brothers best friend and her longtime crush, Brady Everett doesn’t even seem to realize she’s graduated from high school, Amanda makes the decision to show him and all of Cold River that she’s an adult capable of making her own decisions. Preferably reckless ones so that she can look back on a life well-lived and full of lessons learned.
No one is more surprised than Amanda when one of those lessons include sleeping with Brady Everett – all in the name of learning about men.
The last thing Brady expected when his best friend asked him to keep an eye on Amanda was that he would find himself involved with her. But she is a temptation he cannot deny.
As Amanda and Brady spend more time together, they forge a connection that becomes difficult to break.
I loved this book and read it in one setting. Amanda and Brady have amazing chemistry and it was great to see Brady go from oblivious to in love.
If you’re looking for a romance I strongly recommend this book.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Following shortly after “The Hunger Games”, “Catching Fire” follow Peeta and Katniss as they embark on a Victory Tour though the districts.
Katniss soon learns that her actions during the Hunger Games have sparked rebellions and as a result, are costing people their lives.
In a desperate attempt to save the citizens as well as her friends and family, Katniss continues to pretend that she and Peeta are a couple.
But nothing they do can stop the flames of rebellion and President Snow retaliates by hosting another Hunger Games with all of the Victors from the previous games.
Katniss is thrown back into the area and forced to fight for her and Peeta’s life…while still being careful not to do or say anything that could spark another rebellion.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book especially the relationship between Katniss and Peeta.
I could never see Katniss falling for Peeta because he just seemed like a wet sponge but this book really made me ship them.
In fact I was so taken with this book that as soon as I finished, I rushed out to buy the first two movies.
I feel like 2019 is way too late to be a Hunger Games fangirl but here I am and I LOVE THIS SERIES!
