Collision (Shattered Hearts Book 3) by Nicole Banks – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Collision (Shattered Hearts, #3)Collision by Nicole Banks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Collision by Nicole Banks is the third book of the Shattered Hearts series. This book is Chase and Kris’ story.

Chase and Kris have always had a back and forth type of relationship which you see quite a bit of in the first two books. Chase is convinced nothing can happen between them but gets insanely jealous and claims Kris as his if she even shows attention to someone else remind her she is his. Chase has to leave because of a deal he made to help Angel. He doesn’t want to leave Kris but it’s something he has to do. Usually he comes back but this time he chose not to look back. Kris couldn’t believe he left the way he did and now has been gone for eight years so she did what she had to do and moved on the best she could. What she wasn’t expecting, the day of her brothers wedding was to see Chase again after so long. Kris wants nothing to do with him and Chase just wants to win her back. Will they work through their issues or will Kris be unable to forgive him for everything?

This book was a great ending to the series. I had wanted to see more of their relationship and couldn’t wait to read this book. There’s also a lot of underlying suspense in the book that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen. I loved this book and series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Perfect Fit by Zoe Lee is such a cute small town read. I really enjoyed this book.

Daisy never expected, or even wanted to be the “sweet girl” her entire life. She can’t stand that the whole town thinks she can’t do anything wrong. As she’s leaving a wedding reception, she runs into Dunk McCoy. Dunk is always the fun, happy go lucky guy. Always up for a good time. Not many people see passed that it seems. Once he realizes that it’s Daisy he’s looking for, he realizes she sees him for more than just the happy guy. They seem to fit perfectly. Nothing is ever that easy and while things seem to be going smooth, there’s just something Dunk can’t get past. Will these two realize how perfectly they fit or will they need help?

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are so relatable it was easy to see where they stood and why they felt the way they did. Dunk is such a sweetheart! I definitely recommend this book!

Out BadOut Bad by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Out Bad by Janice M. Whiteaker is book one of the Sinners or Saints series. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but I really enjoyed the book.

This book is Joe and Gwen’s story. Both characters carry some pretty heavy demons from their past. Joe tries to redeem himself at every step. He wants to be worthy of a family and a good life. Gwen is a workaholic. She’s pretty sure her chance for a family of her own has passed. When Joe meets Gwen, he knows she’s just the motivation he needs to clean up his act completely. The only problem with demons is they usually come back for more.

This book was pretty suspenseful. I couldn’t wait to find out what was happening. I couldn’t put it down! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Monty and the Monster by Rhonda Smiley – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Monty and the MonsterMonty and the Monster by Rhonda Smiley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Monty the Monster by Rhonda Smiley is a fun book to read. Definitely something that middle schoolers/young adults might enjoy reading.

Monty is a 7th grader who has once again moved to a new place. It’s hard to make and keep friends when you move around so much. Monty finds a serum and decides to create a friend which should be much easier than making friends. However, things don’t go according to plan and Monty May have created a monster…literally. Monty has to come up with a new plan once he realizes his monster best friend may be eating neighborhood kids.

This book was a fun read but also very relatable for young people. Monty’s character can be easily related to at almost any age though. Making friends is not easy!

Shattered (Shattered Hearts #1)Shattered by Nicole Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered by Nicole Banks is book one of the Shattered Hearts series. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I honestly didn’t know what to expect but I was blown away.

Jas has not had it easy the last few years. The one person she feels she can talk to other than her best friend Kris is actually coming back home. Neither Jas nor Angel were ready for what that meant for their relationship. They both have a lot of things to work through as long as they can let each other in.

I absolutely loved this book. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of the series!

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Game ChangerGame Changer by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Game Changer by Sylvie Stewart is an opposites attract romantic comedy. This is not the first book I’ve read by this author and I was not disappointed.

Poppy leaves behind all expectations and heads to New York City. It seems like she may have left some of herself behind too as she tries to hide her southern accent. She thinks she needs to fit a New York City polished image. It isn’t until she meets Mac that everything she thought is turned upside down. Mac isn’t easy to get to know at first but Poppy realizes Mac might be the only one that understands.

Poppy and Mac’s story unfolds slowly but with a lot of laughs and a lot of feels. It doesn’t get better than that!

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love StorySimply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Simply Irresistible: A Totally Sweet Love Story by Jennifer L. Allen is a new adult/ romantic comedy. I didn’t know what to expect when I started this book but that didn’t matter because it would have met and exceeded any expectations I had. This book was so enjoyable to read.

Tyler Smith is not someone you would say has trouble with women. The only trouble he has is keeping them but he can admit to himself that’s mostly his fault. Then he sees the green eyed girl on the elevator and he’s intrigued.

Melanie has seen Tyler before. After all, they work in the same building. Melanie is not good with social situations and anytime she sees him she can’t make herself look at him let alone talk to him. Finally they meet officially and Tyler gets the date he was looking for. The only thing that might tear them apart is their love for different decades. Maybe what they say is true – opposites attract.

This story was so sweet and fun. The book leads up to these two meeting and spending time together but there is an instant comfortableness that the characters feel with each other that really added to the story. This was such a good book, I couldn’t put it down.

September Breeze by Nikki Lynn Barrett is book two of A Cinnamon Bay Romance Series. This book can be read as a standalone. I couldn’t put this book down. There was so much emotion, I just had to read through to see how it all played out.

The Girls across the Bay (The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries, Book 1) by Emerald O’Brien – Review by Angelina Frazzini

The Girls Across The Bay (Knox and Sheppard, #1)The Girls Across The Bay by Emerald O’Brien
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Girls Across the Bay by Emerald O’Brien is book one of The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries series.

The storyline of this book is truly engaging and I couldn’t wait to get to the end to find out what was happening. The characters, Grace and Madigan were very well written and made reading the book more enjoyable. These girls bonded through tough circumstances and grew to have great strength. The small town setting is beautiful. I truly enjoy stories with these small town settings as it makes the story more relatable.

It was slightly distracting that the characters thoughts were italicized but I was able to overlook the distraction for the whole of the story. I would read the next book in the series.

Two Hearts Under Fire (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8) By Tamara Ferguson – Review by Angelina Frazzini

TWO HEARTS UNDER FIRE (Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Book 8)TWO HEARTS UNDER FIRE by Tamara Ferguson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Two Hearts Under Fire by Tamara Ferguson is book eight of the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Series. This book can be read as a standalone.

Russ Quinlan and Claire Ellis have not had easy pasts. Those pasts inadvertently brought Russ and Claire together. Unfortunately, an attack, aimed at either one of them means they need to go somewhere else. Will they be able to keep each other safe and survive their feelings toward each other?

This book deals with some heavy topics but the story is very well written with some added humor to break up the tension. This isn’t the first book I’ve read in this series and unsurprisingly, I really enjoyed this book.
