It was a modern take on an arranged marriage that was supposed to lead to my happily ever after. The rules were simple:
1. Marry a complete stranger chosen for you by professionals.
2. Live together as man and wife for eight weeks while cameras record your every move.
3. Make a decision to stay together or get a divorce.
Call me crazy, but I had complete faith in the process, until I saw who was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.
Austin James has never met me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know him. With no other choice, I say my vows and pray I can make it through the next eight weeks. Then I’ll leave. What connects us is my best kept secret, and I’ll protect it at all costs even if that means walking away from the only person I’ve ever cared about.
This definitely had a nice twist to the arranged marriage theme..
How cool would it be for a panel of professionals to decide on your perfect match?
Paired together based on your likes, dislikes, wants, needs and background?
It would be the ultimate solution.. that is if both parties were completely honest!!
I absolutely fell in love with these 2 characters!! We got to know both of them.. their insecurities.. their strengths and knew there was a huge secret from the beginning.. Just not what exactly and that made the read that much more intriguing.. There was angst, there were moments where I wanted to skip to the end and find out what the issue was.. I laughed I got teary eyed and a few times I wanted to throttle them.. which makes for the perfect read!! Rachael Duncan was a new to me author and I will be looking out for more of her books!!
Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
This was a very sexy, angst filled read where two childhood friends are torn apart by circumstances out of their control.
One was too young and naive to see past her fears and hurt feelings..
Not thinking straight she fled not wanting to face all the the ones she felt betrayed her.
The other was only doing what he felt was the right.. he knew she wouldn't be able to handle the situation and he'd always been her rock, her best~friend, her protector!!
They both were stubborn and had to much pride to ever look back until they were forced together..
Although it had been years since these two had seen each other all those old feelings resurfaced Justin turned into the ultimate asshole although still loyal to fault.. And Patch was still as unaware and naive as before..
It was fun to see them interact with each other and you could see the build up of what was inevitably going to happen.. The flash backs to their youth was super cute... and no matter how much Justin tried to keep his distance he just cared to much for Patch to fully let go..
I really enjoyed this read especially when Justin was being a total douche because I could easily see through his facade.. A very cute friends to lovers and a second chance to something that should have been all along!!
We all make them. Sometimes we break them. But what happens when the promise you break haunts your dreams, when that moment of betrayal echoes within every last beat of your heart?
Love is passionate, painful, and all consuming in the most brutal yet beautiful way. How many people have you said 'I love you' to? Five, ten, maybe no one? I've said that word to two men, but only one where I felt it.
This word sums up my relationship with Nicolas: devastating, painful, depressing.
A first love that should have lasted a lifetime, but I ruined with a stupid decision. Nicolas is my star crossed lover, and even though Shakespeare has taught me that stories such as ours always end in tragedy, I can't not love him, even if I'm married to someone else.
I don't condone cheating, I don't think it's right in any way, shape or form
Blah Blah Blah!!
But I'm not gonna lie and say I made an exception to read this or "I had no clue" what this read might be about..
The fact is I really, REALLY enjoy reading about it.. I love the anticipation, the anxiety maybe the adrenaline rush from the possibility of getting caught..
That's why I read..
To immerse myself in these characters lives to feel what they feel, from a spectators POV though,,
This is a story on how 1 mistake can change so many lives, how the simplest of acts can and will change the path of your life, how not every sacrifice or well meant decision is the right one.
Sometimes not even time can overcome fate..
Destiny is Destiny
Why fight it even if it my lead to more heart ache or even tragedy?
I absolutely LOVED this Tragic Love story
cheating be damned because there was cheating..
But hey maybe one wrong can un~wrong another?

Can Noah keep the devil off his back, or will the individuals he has the grandest plans for witness his wrath when they fall from grace?

This was a total mind fuck of epic proportion!!
It was broken down into 3 parts for us and I'll just let you know how each part affected
me and you decide if you can handle the trip it's taken me through..
I was blindsided , I was gutted, I was left in utter shock!!
I was expecting a turn of events but no where near to the extent that we get..
I was fooled, the wool was so thoroughly pulled over my eyes I was clueless and I
wanted to scream and rant and just throat punch someone due to the unfairness...
"You had to endure the pain to appreciate the pleasure"
I wanted to grasp onto any semblance of redemption but there was none to be found
your just left trying to piece together the why's.. because clearly something is not meshing
and everything must have been a lie or THIS LOVE was just not right...
"You said I should never love you because you wouldn't know how to handle it"
Finally a knight in shining armor? or more ulterior motives?
who can you trust.. why let anyone close if all you're going to do is hurt them!!
Just keep everyone at a distance.. But at what cost?
WHAT THE FUCK!!!
I did NOT see that Coming. At. All.
Please, Please, Please let there be an ending where Keaton is the Victor..
I don't think my heart nor hers for that matter can take another hit..
I want to hope for the best, I want there to be a healthy obsession but is there such a thing?
She might just need to trust blindly at this point..
I frankly don't see another option..
But I'm sure Courtney Lane does..
"Sometimes we have to close our eyes to see the truth?"

Casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to gets pucked over.
Randy & Lily's addition to the Pucked series was Amazeballs..
It's as if every special ingredient for the perfect read was present!!
I was in the mood for this read, I was highly anticipating this read, The characters fit, The humor was belly clutching, The sexy time was scorching HOT and the storyline was on POINT!!
Alex and Vi had their moments and Vi with her diarrhea of the month just never disappoints.. I don't think there's not one reader out there that won't associate the pelvic thrust when Vi even thinks the name Randy Balls!!!
Miller and Daisy had their say as well.. Watching my Yeti embrace the model boyfriend roll was just tooth achingly adorable...
There was not one thing I didn't LOVE about this book!!
