Blog Tour: Falling for the Bad Girl by Nina Croft




Falling for the Bad Girl
By: Nina Croft
Release Date: February 27, 2017

Description:
As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.

Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.

It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?

Review:
Oh the beautiful story of good vs bad, of two people who find each other irresistible but know they shouldn’t be together because of all the factors in their lives, but they turn out to be the yin to their yang.  It’s inevitable.  It’s destined in the stars.  That’s how I feel about the two characters in this new Nina Croft novel.  It’s bound to happen and who cares if one is a cop and one is a criminal, things happen and sometimes they happen for the best.

We meet Regan as she’s coming out of jail and the guy who helped put her in there is outside watching.  It’s an obsession, they had a connection at some point but for obvious reasons no one acted on it.  That is, until she got out.  Now it’s all Nate can think about, and Regan isn’t that far behind either.  Their relationship isn’t the most ideal but the two together have an undeniable chemistry.  They want to pursue something but at the same time they want to keep their lives very separate from one another.  It’s a lot easier said than done.

This book had a lot of undertones about trust, and family and going through things together rather than alone.  Sometimes you need that person to back you up and help you see the light in certain situations and I think that’s what they were to one another, but it’s difficult because again there were a lot of trust issues, one being a cop the other a criminal.  There were also other factors in their lives keeping them from completely committing, such as Regan’s family of criminals. 

I love that this book was set in Europe, but I didn’t even realize it until a little bit into the book.  Then I started doing everything in an English accent in my mind while I read it.  Which anything with an accent is just that much more enjoyable, right? 


Overall the book was a great read, a little slow in the middle but once it started picking up I just couldn’t put it down and had to finish it as soon as possible.  My favorite part will always be the family scenes because they were just too funny and I can completely picture them in my mind.  I enjoyed the characters, it wasn’t too raunchy which I enjoyed and the story was good.  Good vs bad can’t go wrong with that, although I really wouldn’t call Regan that bad, just at the wrong time and place with the wrong person and things happened.

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

By Your Side
By: Kasie West
Release Date: January 31, 2016

Description:
In this irresistible story, Kasie West explores the timeless question of what to do when you fall for the person you least expect. Witty and romantic, this paperback original from a fan favorite is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson.

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?


Review:
This book definitely went on a different tangent then Kasie West’s normal YA Contemporary novels, but regardless I loved it.  This book bought out new issues that need to be focused on, this opened my eyes to issues that people face every day and I’ve never been able to completely understand but with this I understand it that much more.  Kasie West has a way of bringing you into the world of her characters and making you feel what they feel, it’s a great skill in a great writer.

We meet Autumn who gets locked inside the library.  This is something that you usually don’t experience but I guess it happens, which is fine if you didn’t suffer from a serious case of anxiety.  It also doesn’t help that the only people who know are her family and to them she’s off with her friends for the long weekend.  So this is an adventure on its own, but luckily for Autumn, she’s not alone.  The mysterious guy from school is there, you know the one who was in juvie.  Can we just say, entertaining?  It’s always fun trying to get through to the guy who is always alone and doesn’t want any attachments.  Breaking through all those barriers and finding what is deep down inside. 

They both help each other out in the library during their few days being stuck there, sure events changed and they had to leave earlier than expected but this is just when the story starts getting even better.  I don’t want to say too much because really you have to read the book to find out all the little details.  You know you want to, after all it’s a Kasie West book.  But I will say that there are some really great characters throughout the book, whether it’s Autumn’s family, her friends or even just Dax himself, everyone plays a very important role in this story. 

We learn more about anxiety and how it affects the person who has anxiety and the people around them, even if they don’t know about it there is a way that they are perceived because of it.  It’s interesting I always felt like anxiety is something you should be able to control but sometimes it gets the better of you and we experience that throughout the book.  We also learn a lot more about Dax and the kind of person he is and some of the things he’s gone through.  I don’t want to say too much but I can definitely say that not everyone’s home life is peachy keen.  Again super interesting and entertaining. 

I loved the interaction between the two because even though Dax and Autumn are so very different but because of their interactions and their agreement to be each other’s distractions it leads to a truly great relationship between two people, one that helps make them complete and functional in everyday society. 


This was definitely not the usual young adult contemporary but regardless it was remarkably impressive and impressionable.  I love the cover, and can I just say I want me some cute wedge boots.  The cover was exactly how I pictured the main characters and that’s always a positive thing.  Great book.

For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it’s not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school…and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years.

Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace, who had eyes only for him. But as Logan eventually escaped their town, Grace got pulled further into her family’s controlling grasp—and farther away from the man she loved.

Review:
This book was intriguing, talking about subjects that no one wants to deal with but that exist in everyday life.  There is some true evil out there, lurking behind clean cut personas.  Susan Stoker did a great job bringing this out to the forefront in different ways.  This book was thoroughly enjoyed.

We meet Grace and Logan as they are parting ways way back after high school finishes, come back a couple years after the death of Logan’s family and back in town he comes.  Hoping to find out what happened between him and Grace, why she never responded to him after he left.  It was great finally seeing them reunite and everything was broken down eventually as to what happened to their unfortunate miscommunication.  But there was so much more going on.

This book really delved deeply into abuse, not only physical abuse but sometimes people forget that there is emotional and mental abuse that sometimes is more damaging than physical abuse.  Yes physical abuse hurts and can lead to even worse things, but those wounds heal.  When you mentally abuse someone with words and threats it’s more damaging to the person being abused.  They become a shell of themselves.  It’s not something I wish on anyone, any type of abuse really.  But Stoker really showed you this different type of abuse that you don’t see very often and it was titillating.  Grace was constantly abused by her parents, and she was just too scared to get out from under them.  Until Logan came back in town.

The things her parents do to her were unbelievable, I thought I was watching a Lifetime movie and I couldn’t help but root for Grace to break free from the chains.  It was a really great read.  From beginning to end you just couldn’t stop thinking about it, what was going to happen next?  Could this get any worse, and it usually did.  I don’t really want to give too much away because you really should read it and find out what happens. 


I did find the characters interesting, and I really can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.  I’m hoping it has something to do with Alexis because she seemed just a little bit badass.  Overall the setting was great, the plot was interesting and different.  This isn’t a typical romance where you find someone and something happens and then they get together, no this had a little more depth which makes it more interesting.  Love the cover of the book too, he looks totally delectable.

I received this book from NetGalley and Montlake Romance, so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa.

Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

The Distance Between Us
By: Kasie West
Release Date: July 2, 2013

Description:
Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.
 

Review:

This was Kasie West’s first contemporary novel and I have no idea why I wanted this long to read it.  She can do no wrong; her books are amazing from the very first word to the very last and always leave you wanting more.  It’s like when you’re eating something and it’s so good you never want it to end (like ice cream) but then it ends and you’re like nooo I want more!  That’s how I feel anything Kasie West has written.  Well this novel did not disappoint either, loved everything about it.
We meet Caymen and her dolls.  She and her mother live on top of this doll store that they own.  The amount of sarcasm that Caymen has is unbelievably amazing.  She reminds me so much of myself I love sarcasm, but even she takes it to a whole new level and I couldn’t help but laugh half the time, because I totally get her.  Too funny.  She meets Xander who’s there to pick something up for his grandmother.  This is definitely a story of the rich vs. the poor, but even though it was heavily put in this book I think between Xander and Caymen, things like that didn’t even matter. 
 
The interactions between Xander and Caymen (by the way really great names) were entertaining, but there were some serious conversations that they had together.  There were definite heart strings being pulled left and right throughout the humor which I enjoyed because sometimes you have to have those real moments where things matter and are important to everyone around.  There were a lot of those moments, I’m telling you I was right there with Caymen the whole way through I was rooting for her to get the happiness she so obviously wanted and needed. 

Life is always tough but it’s the way you go through it that makes you the person you are.  Sometimes it’s not always the best to hold back from others, those other people can help you in the long run.  I feel like this book really showed how you have to be happy in life, you have to remember that sometimes what you want matters and if you really want it you should go for it.  I really don’t want to talk too much about the book because really if you haven’t read it yet you should go and read it. 

Overall this book was incredible from beginning to end and I know I say that a lot but it’s a whole different feeling when it’s something by Kasie west because her contemporary novels are just really quite perfect.  The plot was entertaining, relatable and sensitive all at the same time.  The characters are very likeable, approachable and funny, let’s not forget the amount of sarcasm coming out of Caymen’s mouth, love it!  The setting is great too because it’s a little town that is more touristy and there is a definite division between the rich and the poor, which really helped to bring the point across in the book.  Go get this, it’s worth it! Always!

Blog Tour: There's Something About Nik by Sara Hantz


There’s Something About Nik 
by Sara Hantz
Genre: Standalone YA Contemporary
Published by Entangled Teen
Published on February 13th, 2017
Nik Gustafsson has a secret: He’s not really Nik Gustafsson.
He’s not a spy. He’s not crazy.
He’s just the son and heir to one of the most important families in Europe—one where duty always comes first. And his posh, too-public life is suffocating him. So when he gets the chance to attend boarding school in America, pretending to be an average exchange student is too big of a temptation to pass up.
Then he literally runs into Amber on campus. And she hates him at first sight.
It’s kind of exhilarating to be hated for who he is, not for his family name or his wealth. Maybe if he turns up the charm and turns down the aloof mask he habitually wears, he can win her over. Even though a bad past experience has made her swear off dating this year.
But the more he gets to know her, the more uncomfortable he is keeping things from her.
Because Nik Gustafsson has a secret. And it’s a big one.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a hot boy who’s the strong and silent type, a studious girl who refuses to believe in fairy-tale romance, and one epic secret that could be disastrous if it comes to light.

Review:
This was a super cute and super adorable quick read about a fantasy I’m sure many girls/women have had all their lives, after all who doesn’t want a prince charming?  Sara Hantz did a wonderful job transporting us to this private school where it seems even royalty attends. 

We meet Nik who is under cover trying to be a regular guy.  Its hard being second in line for the throne, even if it’s not something he really wants there is still too much attention on him.  Normalcy is a rarity in his life and he’s just seeking a little bit with a year away in America.  Of course he wasn’t planning on meeting someone, let alone someone as special and as strong willed as Amber.  The two of them are like ying and yang until you put them together and they fit just right.

Amber also has had a tough life, although not because of media and duties, there are things she has overcome in her past and has always had a hard time trusting people because of those actions.  Trust is a major part of any relationship, break that just a little and sometimes it’s just too hard to gain back.  Even though she adamantly doesn’t want a relationship this school year only wanting to focus on her photography and application, she couldn’t help but feel that attraction with Nik.  Again two peas in a pod these two.


There was a very sweet innocence to the entire book that you don’t see very often.  Oh to be that young and naïve, what a treasure these young people have today that they take for granted.  Overall the book was a great quick read.  The characters were just adorable and even though there wasn’t too much depth to the book it still kept you rooting for the couple to get together in the end.  The setting was very typical of a boarding school, not that I’ve experienced one in the past but it’s definitely what I can imagine it to be.  New Hampshire as a whole is also just a beautiful state and very remote in some places so perfect place to set this book in.  Loved it!

Excerpt:
Nik drew in a long breath. He was in uncharted territory and didn’t know how to proceed. He’d never met anyone quite like Amber before—specifically, anyone who showed such disinterest in him. Was this what being normal felt like? To be ignored or dismissed like he wasn’t important? Suddenly, he wasn’t so sure if he liked it. He surreptitiously studied her, while she did everything she could to avoid eye contact. She certainly wasn’t his type, if indeed he had a type. His previous girlfriends had all been tall with blonde hair, which would imply that he did. Then again, in his country, most girls he met looked like that.

Amber was small, at least a head shorter than he was. Her dark brown hair seemed ridiculously short as it framed her face. A pretty face with freckles. And what was it with that camera she hugged close to her, like it was something so precious? He’d hoped that in America he’d finally be away from people constantly trying to get a shot of him. Yet, the first day here, he’d met a girl who seemed obsessed with taking photos. No wonder he’d frozen up around her.

“What are you staring at?” Amber’s question brought him back to the present with a start.

 “Nothing,” he replied abruptly, feeling like a small child being caught doing something wrong.

She reminded him of his old nanny, who’d always said that he shouldn’t stare at people because it made them feel uncomfortable. Most of the time, he didn’t even realize he was doing it.

 “It didn’t seem like nothing to me. You were looking at my hair, weren’t you?” she accused.

“Yes. It’s much shorter than I’m used to seeing.” The words were out of his mouth before he could stop them. He should’ve known better than that. He’d been trained since a child to be circumspect, and here he was, not two days in America, and he was forgetting how to behave.

“Girls don’t have short hair in your country?” Amber challenged, as if daring him to say even more about how she looked.

Which was another thing. All the girls he knew were masters of polite conversation. He had no clue why she was being so unfriendly. He hadn’t been rude to her. Admittedly, he’d been looking at her hair. Well, her hair and also her camera. But surely that wasn’t enough to make her so antagonistic.

Maybe it was a cultural thing. He would check with Josh later whether it was something he’d done by mistake. In the meantime, he couldn’t just stand there in such awkward silence.

“It’s different from girls at home, yes. But it’s very striking,” he added, hoping that would appease her.


She remained silent for a moment, with an expression on her face like he was a bug who had landed on her shoe. “Thank goodness for that,” she finally said, “or I might have had to spend the next several months sitting in my room willing it to grow.”

Review: Romeo & What's Her Name by Shani Petroff

Romeo & What's Her Name
By: Shani Petroff
Release Date: February 7, 2017

Description:
An unprepared understudy is forced to take the stage with her secret crush in this romantic YA comedy of errors from author Shani Petroff.
Understudies Never Get to Perform
...which is why being Juliet's understudy in the schools yearly "Evening with Shakespeare" is the perfect role for Emily. She can earn some much-needed extra credit while pursuing her main goal of spending time with Wes, aka Romeo, aka the hottest, nicest guy in school (in her completely unbiased opinion). And she meant to learn her lines, really, it's just:
a) Shakespeare is HARD,
b) Amanda aka the "real" Juliet makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there's no point since Amanda would never miss he chance to be the star of the show.
Then, Amanda ends up in the hospital and Emily, as the (completely unprepared!) understudy, has to star in the most famous scene from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops?

Review:
This book was absolutely adorable. Think of like the crazy things that happen when you are in high school add in a bit of Shakespeare and of course a really big gesture and you have a wonderfully perfect contemporary story. Shani Petroff did a really great job bringing you to this high school and making you love the characters in this story. You couldn’t help but root for them from the very beginning!
We meet Emily who is head over heels crushing on her neighbor Wes. They’ve been friends forever but she’s too scared to admit to him just how much she likes him.  She has this really great plan to do a Shakespeare sketch of Romeo and Juliet just so she can get closer to him. Only problem is she is horrible at English and even worse when it comes to Shakespeare, let’s not forget that she’s only the understudy, the person she dislikes the most is the real Juliet and has lately been all over Wes.
Wes just happens to be completely adorable in every way possible, quite the gentleman and really delightful. If Emily doesn’t snag him quick I might have to keep him in my pocket because he's just that picture-perfect. Talk about really great book boyfriend material!
I love how Emily's friend always have her back no matter what crazy things she wants to do. But let's not cut Emily too short, she was too funny in this book. Emily is the kind of girl you can't help but notice and not always for good things but because she puts herself out there for the world to see.  Sure sometimes things don't come out the way she expects them but she's fun and she isn't afraid of embarrassing herself at all.  She was a very likable character and I would completely be her friend. But again her friends definitely are there for her one hundred percent. 
There were so many great scenes in this book and when they butchered Shakespeare it was amazingly and funny-eth.  If you are looking for the next great contemporary Yong adult book this is definitely something you have to pick up. Loved every second of it.  It was a quick and fun read with characters you can't help but smile at.  I literally laughed out loud.  Oh the shenanigans that went on in this book were both classic and original.  You really never know what crazy thing Emily was going to do next or what was going to happen to her.
I love the cover it really drew me to the book. It's cute, eye catching and charming. The setting and story plot was very addicting, realistic and enjoyable. The writing was splendid, flowed quite nicely and really kept you going. I will definitely be checking more out from this author.  Make sure to pick this book up because I promise you will not be disappointed in the least.
