Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1) by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)Climbing The Walls by Sacha T.Y. Fortuné
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Climbing the Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortune is book one of the Hart and Cole series.

Kris fell in love with Nicole and he still feels that way. He’s proud of how hard she works he just wishes she put that much effort into their family. Nicole wants to be worth of Kris. She’s not sure how she managed to get him to fall for her but she wants to make sure it stays that way but it’s hard not to go running when her boss needs her. She realizes she has room to improve as a mother and she wants to do what she can to be better. Can she keep her family together before it’s too late?

This book highlights very well that marriage isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. It’s a partnership but it’s not always equal. The story was good and I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen but it felt a bit dragged out. It was very detailed but I think at times a little too detailed. I can’t wait to see how the story continues in the next book.

Learning to Live: An Enemy to Lovers Ugly Cry (The Infinite Love Series Book One) by Kira Adams – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Learning to Live: An Enemy to Lovers Ugly Cry (The Infinite Love Series, Book 1)Learning to Live: An Enemy to Lovers Ugly Cry by Kira Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Learning to Live by Kira Adams is book one of the Infinite Love series.

I could not get enough of this book! I read it in one sitting and definitely wasn’t expecting it to turn out the way it did. I couldn’t stop reading until I knew what was going to happen! Ciera is just trying to make it through each day. She has to deal with bullies and mean pranks but she just had to get through the days. Topher is accustomed to living life a certain way. He didn’t really care too much about anyone other than himself. All it took was one look at Ciera after a little shopping trip with Madalynne and Topher is intrigued. Ciera took everything Topher thought and flipped it on its head. Ciera thought for sure she’d have to rely on herself to make it through her senior year. She had no idea she really needed Topher.

This book had so many emotions. I found myself in tears more than once! So heart breaking but there were some cute moments between Topher and Ciera. He turned out better than I had expected. His character definitely grows on you. I can’t wait to read more!

Is This Me? (Being Me Book 1) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Is This Me? (Being Me #1)Is This Me? by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Is This Me? By Tricia Copeland is book one of the Being Me series. I absolutely devoured this book! This book is a coming of age/new adult clean romance.

Amanda is a college freshman and she’s got it all planned out. She doesn’t expect that her plan will be derailed on the first day. Amanda meets up with her friends and is introduced to the brothers at her friend, Mark’, fraternity. Doug and Zach are two people she ends up being pretty close to especially after an accident leaves her needing a lot of assistance from her friends, especially Doug. Even though he’s turned her down, she’s determined to be friends no matter how difficult it is. Zach makes it a little easier though, that and avoiding Doug. Can Amanda withstand all the turmoil she’s facing and make it out unscathed?

I don’t like Doug. I did at first and his develops well but I don’t like him for Amanda. From the beginning, Zach felt more like where Amanda should end up. This book is deep and you can relate to the characters and the feelings. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

At All by Mindy McKinley is book three of the Adams Brothers series. I couldn’t get enough of this series and this book! I read it in one sitting!

This book is Sebastian’s story. We saw a bit of Seb in Mason’s book and I wasn’t sure I was going to like him. Seb redeems himself throughout his story. Seb hit his rock bottom and now he has to work to prove he’s made a recovery. To keep himself busy while he’s grounded from touring, he teaches music lessons. He’s not psyched about it but he needs something and this keeps him close to music. This is where he meets Maelie. Maelie is happy with her life. Teaching is her dream even if her father thinks she should be performing. Maelie and Seb meet at the music store but they don’t exactly hit it off at first. Seb is convinced he can win her over though.

I really enjoyed reading Seb and Maelie’s story. I loved watching them develop. Seb redeemed himself in my eyes and I grew to love his character. I highly recommend this book and the series!

Em is driven and smart. She’s got too much to accomplish before she even thinks about settling down. Her father on the other hand thinks the time is now. Her father is always on the look out for men to send Em’s way. Starting a family isn’t a dream Em’s had for herself. That is until she meets Joel. What is it about Joel that has her picturing a different future? Joel doesn’t have time for relationships. He’s got a business to focus on. As he’s trying to close a deal with Mr.Georgiou, he offers to set Joel up with zen to get to know her more. Joel needs to close this deal so he takes him up on the offer, not expecting what he gets when he meets Em. He realizes everything Em is and knows he wants more than a hook up with her but how does he convince her he isn’t doing this to impress her father? Will these two alter the plans they had for their futures to make room for each other.

This was a good read! It was enjoyable and I really enjoyed watching the characters evolve and change and realize that that’s okay to do to make room for new dreams while holding on to the old ones.

Heartbeats and Roses (Hartwood Holiday Romance) by Jae Dawson – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Heartbeats and Roses: A Small Town Valentine's Day Romance (A Hartwood Holiday Romance)Heartbeats and Roses: A Small Town Valentine’s Day Romance by Jae Dawson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Heartbeats and Roses by Jae Dawson is a Hartwood Holiday Romance. This was such a good book packed with everything! Second chances, forgiveness, small town – it has a little bit of everything.

Rose is such a text book romantic and truly enjoys matchmaking. As much as she’d like to find love for herself, no one has measured up to her first love. Maybe that will soon change. Liam has had a rough go of it lately and returns to his hometown to take a step back and get his bearings. He doesn’t expect to come face to face with the girl he left behind. Will fate intervene?

This was a sweet read. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I found myself really hoping things would work out for Rose after all the match making she’s done for everyone else. I had to find out how it would end! I recommend giving this book a chance!

Stone of DestinyStone of Destiny by Nadine Travers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stone of Destiny by Nadine Travers is book one of the Juniper Samoni Trilogy. This book is a paranormal fantasy which is not my usual genre to read but I enjoyed it. The book was action packed and suspenseful at times.

Juniper has been tasked with retrieving the Stone of Destiny. The stone’s powers are too great for it to fall into the wrong hands. She has to get it before anyone else can. There’s always evil lurking in the shadows. Will Juniper be successful in her mission?

The book was well written as are the characters. The author keeps you guessing and throws surprises at you. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. I recommend it!

At Once (The Adams Brothers Book 2) by Mindy McKinley – Review by Angelina Frazzini

At Once (Adams Brothers, #2)At Once by Mindy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

At Once by Mindy McKinley is book two of the Adams Brothers series.

Gabi is working really hard to make sure the first big project G&K Designs works on is great. To do that she needs some really great furniture. Kylie takes her to AdamsMade and that’s where she meets Mason for the first time. Gabi is still healing and doesn’t expect meeting Mason to stir feelings in her. She’s just going to have to keep him out of mind. That would be easy if they didn’t end up working together on this project. Mason didn’t expect Gabi to say no but the more time he spends with her the more he wants to spend with her. Can Gabi and Mason work together and work on their connection as well or will everything fall to pieces?

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are great and I found myself chuckling every now and then. It was such a great read I think I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down!!

Stormy’s Thunder (Satan’s Devils MC Utah #2) by Manda Mellett – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Stormy's Thunder (Satan's Devils MC Utah #2)Stormy’s Thunder by Manda Mellett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stormy’s Thunder by Manda Mellett is book two of the Satan’s Devils MC Utah series. I couldn’t put this book down. I had to know how it was going to play out!

Stormy is who he is unapologetically. There are times that it’s easy not to like him. This book definitely gives him his redemption. It’s not easy. He’s got to fight for it. He almost doesn’t make it but he fights. There is more to this lost soul than one would expect though and his story gives you a chance go dig deeper into his character and watch him grow. I don’t want to give anything away but if you like MCs and the Satan’s Devils, you’ll enjoy Stormy’s story.

This book was very well written. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. There is so much going on and you can’t wait to get to the bottom of it but you don’t want it to end either.
