Review: The Upside of Falling by Meghan Quinn

TheUpsideofFalling availnowbanner.jpg

REVIEW: 

Despite it only being six months into the year, I think I have found my top read of 2018. I know a lot of people say that about various books, but I’m being incredibly honest right now. This. Book. Is. Everything.

Now I’ve been reading Meghan Quinn for a while now, and I’m completely used to her sarcastic dialogue, witty banter, and laugh-out-loud situations. But this book has proven that Meghan is no one trick pony. The emotions and feels (seriously all the feels) that this book invoked was incredible. She truly outdid herself with The Upside of Falling.

The Upside of Falling is the type of book that you want to go into without much information. Going in blind will truly add to your reading experience. So please – just stop reading this blog and go and download this book ASAP. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.  Oh and once you’re done reading PLEASE direct message me on instagram  so we can chat scream about that ending!!!!

SYNOPSIS: 

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.

My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.
I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination.

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.
One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.
Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.
And with one single incident, I fly off course.

TheBlueLineDuet comingsoonbanner.jpgABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

Badass_Headhot_smaller.jpgBorn in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Review: Bro Code by Kendall Ryan

BroCode teaser6.jpg
Happy Monday fellow bibliophiles!

In case the title of this post didn’t tip you off, I have a new book up for review! Bro Code by Kendall Ryan is  her newest contemporary release – and it was so good! In one sitting I completely binge read the whole thing!

I absolutely loved Ava and Barrett, the two main leads. Their chemistry was spot on, and despite some of the plot points being pretty cliche, there was a twist that I did NOT see coming. Once that point was revealed I was FUMING – I won’t spoil it for you, but it’s a gooder.

Honestly the only issue I had with this book was the setting/time of the story.  It was snowing and described as being super cold, which was weird as I was reading outside in 26 degree Celsius weather (79F for all you Americans out there)!

But all in all, this was another great contemporary romance read by Kendall Ryan. The trope was “brother’s friend”, which is one of my favourite romances to read. The slow-burn and trying to deny the growing attraction between the two main characters was so well done. Read the brief synopsis below, and be sure to add this book to your TBR!

SYNOPSIS:

From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a flirty new standalone about falling for your older brother’s best friend.

There’s pretty much only one rule when you’re a guy.

Don’t be a douche.

Turns out, the fastest way to break that rule is to fall for your best friend’s sister.

Ava’s brilliant, sharp-tongued, gorgeous, and five years younger than me.

She’s the sexual equivalent of running with scissors. In a word, she’s dangerous. And completely off-limits.

Falling for her could ruin everything.

Yet I can’t seem to stop, even when her company is threatened by a lawsuit, and my promotion hinges on representing the opposing client—and winning.

I can’t see a way out of this mess that doesn’t end in a broken friendship, a broken heart, or a ruined career.

I may have broken the bro code when I fell for Ava. But do I have the balls to handle what comes next?

Review: Taming Him by Kennedy Fox

taminghim-banner-1reviewKennedy Fox has done it again. I didn’t think it was possible- yet here I am. What is it that they’ve done, you may ask?

Two words. Taming. Him.

Another knock-your-socks-off read has been made available to you this week and I highly recommend picking it up. This book gives you all the necessary warm and fuzzy feelings , and Alex Bishop is the perfect Southern gentleman.

For the most part this book was highly engaging and I felt connected to both River, the strong female lead, and Alex. He was such an unexpected sweet heart. My only concern with the book was that there wasn’t enough conflict for me. I felt the story needed a little bit more drama and twists and turns.

That being said – this book as completely set itself up to be a killer series. I CANNOT wait to become introduced to the next three brothers. Evan – I’m coming for you.  John – I can already tell my heart will be yours. Jackson – boy you are going to be trouble. Who says you only need one book boyfriend in you life? Shhh don’t tell the others.

If you want a a dash Southern romance, that has you craving for some down-home lovin’ – then I highly recommend this book. Also – don’t forget to check out Kennedy Fox’s shop to snag your self a wonderful book box full of amazing, and delicious, western swag!

Check out the synopsis and links below!

Title: Taming Him

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Vacation Romance

*Each Bishop Brothers novel is an interconnected standalone*

Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.

Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.

Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too. Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.

River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.

Even if it’s only temporarily.

Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.
