Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1) by Brittany Butler – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1)Hazed by Brittany Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hazed by Brittany Butler is book one of the Hazed Series. This book is recommended for readers over 17 due to some of the subject matter. The book does end with some loose ends so be prepared to want to read book two right away. This book is THAT good. I read this book in one sitting and can’t wait to read book two.

Taylor Thompson finally has some freedom. She was accepted to and moved to a college an hour away from her strict controlling father. Now, her decisions are hers to make. Spending time with Hayze Clark seems like an easy decision for Taylor. But little by little lies are told and secrets come out of the woodwork and Taylor’s not sure she has the energy to fix Hayze and the issues he seems to have. Not at the expense of her heart at least. Will these two have a future?

I was so conflicted on how to feel throughout this book. On one hand, Hayze is clearly a lost soul. On the other hand, the relationship doesn’t seem healthy for them. They are both great characters, very realistic and relatable. I just so badly want them to find happiness. This is such a great book!

Miss Apple Pants: Lost in Love (The Miss Apple Pants Series Book 2) by Charlotte Roth – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Lost in Love: Miss Apple Pants (#2)Lost in Love: Miss Apple Pants by Charlotte Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lost in Love by Charlotte Roth is book two of The Miss Apple Pants series. Book one should be read before reading this book in order to be able to follow along.

This book picks up three years after book one and Ella is just as smart, beautiful and funny as ever. When her father announces a surprise trip, Ella finds herself confused when it comes to matters of the heart. She doesn’t quite know how to follow her heart. Should she revisit the past or take a risk on something new? There is so much wit, adventure and romance in this book. There are plenty of emotions and some heart warming moments.

If you haven’t yet, read book one so you can read this book!

What She Lost and Found by M.L. Garcia – Review by Angelina Frazzini

What She Lost And FoundWhat She Lost And Found by M.L. Garcia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What She Lost and Found by M.L. Garcia is a very emotional story. Daniela has had her life torn apart and now she has to try to fight through it.

Daniela has experienced trauma that no one should ever have to deal with. She thinks that starting over in a new city and getting a fresh start may help. However, she realizes her past is holding her back. She doesn’t get close to people, she doesn’t trust anyone, especially men, and she doesn’t feel safe.

Due to some scenes being depicted fairly detailed, this book may not be suitable for some readers but the author does a good job balancing the “dark” parts of the book with more cheerful, light parts as well. I truly couldn’t put this book down. My heart ached for Daniela but I was glad to see her working through her issues and gaining meaningful relationships in her life. I absolutely recommend this book.

Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) by J.D. Boudreaux – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Broken Sand DollarBroken Sand Dollar by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Broken Sand Dollar by JD Boudreaux is book three of The Sand Dollar Series. To better understand the events that take place in this book, I highly suggest reading book one and two first.

This series spans over years of Alex’s life. The author effortlessly weaves together present tense with flashbacks of Alex’s past. When you read the first two books you start to get an idea of how you think the third book will go but then it takes you on a completely different journey. Alex’s journey self reflection, coupled with the therapy he does, teaches him a lot about himself.

This book was very well written. I enjoyed seeing the differences in all the characters and how they reacted to different experiences. I was hooked as soon as I started reading this book. It was a great conclusion to the series!

Little Do You Know (Bayou Devils MC Book 5) by A.M. Myers – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Little Do You Know (Bayou Devils MC 5)Little Do You Know by A.M. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Little Do You Know by A.M. Myers is book five of the Bayou Devils MC series. This book can be read as a standalone but to understand all the characters that make an appearance in this book, I suggest reading the books in order. Each book is amazing it it’s own way so you’d do yourself a disservice by not reading them all.

Kady and Noah have been together forever. A turn of events has separated them but Noah is determined to find her. Noah has loved her most of his life, he’s not giving up now no matter how much of a fight Kady puts up. Kady knows Noah is her soul mate but she’s experienced too much pain the last few years. She’s not sure if she can put it all behind her and let him back into her life.

This book blew me away. I literally read it in one sitting. I could feel Noah’s pain. He desperately wanted Kady back in his life and Kady, because of the last few years, is reluctant. My heart broke for both of them. This book is a emotional roller coaster and I wish I could read it for the first time over and over again!

Feathers – A Novel by Kylie Stewart – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Feathers - A NovelFeathers – A Novel by Kylie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Feathers by Kylie Stewart is a book I absolutely could not put down. I read this book in just a few hours because I HAD to know what was going to happen next.

Charlotte Waters has experienced things no one should ever have to go through. She’s finally safe but vows to never trust another man. She does not expect Hawk McLean to see into her nor does she expect to forge a friendship with him. When Hawk first saw Charlotte, she was just a young teen but he couldn’t look away. He had a desire to know her unlike the other girls his grandmother saved. Charlotte can’t help how she feels about Hawk but he keeps leaving and she thinks it might be time to give up. Does Hawk realize his feelings for Charlotte or are they destined to stay the friends they became?

I absolutely loved this story. I didn’t know what to expect when I started it but I couldn’t put it down. Charlotte experienced so much pain and trauma but she came out the other side and built a life. I loved her resilience. Hawk was really trying to do what he thought was best. You could see his genuine care for Charlotte. This is definitely a five star read!

Shattered Love (Forever Us Series, #1) by Nivia Borrell – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Shattered LoveShattered Love by Nivia Borell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shattered Love by Nivia Borell is book one of the Forever Us Series. This book is a contemporary romance that had me glued to my seat until the last page. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but books like this is why I continue to read books by new to me authors. This book was so emotional.

Life is not easy. Life is about putting in work, making choices and then dealing with the consequences. Bria and Damien’s lives have changed due to circumstances they’ve faced and how they’ve dealt with those circumstances. Will the circumstances of their past determine how they live their future?

This book was very well written. You could feel the pain, betrayal and all the other feelings that consumed Bria and Damien. These characters had quite the journey and the book makes you feel everything right along with them. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for these characters.

Surviving Grace: Book Five (Surviving Series) by Virginia Wine – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Surviving Grace: Book Five ( Surviving Series)Surviving Grace: Book Five by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving Grace by Virginia Wine is book five of the Surviving Series. This book is a novella and is written in a poetic format. This book should be read by readers 18+ due to the content and language.

Grace is a beautiful, strong woman that experienced a lot of pain and devastation. There is quite a bit of suspense as you wait to see how Grace’s future will play out. I couldn’t put the book down. There is so much emotion in this book you can’t help but feel a sliver of what Grace must have been feeling. She is such a great character. She is so strong and didn’t let herself get beat down even though at times she didn’t think highly of herself.

This was a great book. It was interesting to read it in poetic format. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it when I first started it but once I got use to it, it was really good. I definitely recommend this whole series!

Rush (The Boys of RDA Book 1) by Megan Matthews – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Rush (The Boys of RDA, #1)Rush by Megan Matthews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rush by Megan Matthews is book one of The Boys of RDA series. This book is a contemporary romantic comedy and the first book I’ve read by this author. I really enjoyed the story.

Aspen has everything going for her. She has a new apartment thanks to her sister in law, even if it has ridiculous rules for her to follow. She is going to stick to her plan and focus on work. When she quite literally falls into Finn, things start to change a little. Finn seems to be around any time Aspen needs him which has her scared that it is too good to be true. Will Finn be there for Aspen when she really needs him?

The book was enjoyable. The characters were engaging. The book was written so well that I could picture myself in San Francisco. Overall, the book was great, engaging and fun to read. Can’t wait to read more of this series.
