Cover Reveal | Hollywood Playboy by Natasha Madison

Jessica

An entertainment journalist was the last thing I thought I would be doing.

I thought once I got my degree, I would be reporting on stories that made a difference, but now all I do is report on who broke up with who and who is dating who.

I was over it.

Then I got my next assignment.

He’s Hollywood’s bad boy.

He works hard, and he plays even harder.

He’s rude, he’s condescending, and he’s made it known he doesn’t want me on the tour.

With one month on the road with him, two things might happen.

One, I may never work in this industry again.

Two, I may just be like everyone else and fall for Hollywood’s Playboy.

Book Review | The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker

Copy of we will be

SYNOPSIS

Calla Fletcher wasn’t even two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when Calla learns that Wren’s days may be numbered, she knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this rugged environment, Jonah—the unkempt, obnoxious, and proud Alaskan pilot who helps keep her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. Soon, she finds herself forming an unexpected bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago. It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

Set in the picturesque background of Alaska and seeing it through Calla’s eyes was certainly a fun experience. Also new and unfamiliar to the place, her sense of wonderment and puzzlement consumed me to the core and made me feel like I’m exploring it alongside with her. I love how the striking differences between the simple Alaska and fast-paced city life were described so well in the book. Alaska may be years behind in terms of advancement but the sense of contentment & community unquestionably makes up for it.

Book Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Book Cover - The Distance Between Us

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US
Author: Kasie West (Website | Twitter)
Publication Date: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen

SYNOPSIS

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she’s beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

Review

The Distance Between Us offers a quite complicated love story between Caymen Meyers and Xander Spence. But despite that, Kasie West managed to inject a certain air of lightness to it through her characters. She has proven herself (once again) that she can really create great characters, give them distinct voices and breathe life into them through their personalities.

Diving into this book, I was thinking of how she will be able to separate the voice of Caymen from her other female protagonists. Then oh dear, I was just a few pages in and I was already loving Caymen’s character. West crafted Caymen into this very witty and sarcastic girl. Complete with her dry sense of humor. Seriously. I couldn’t even count the number of times I gave myself a face palm (even pounded my head on a pillow) when I was reading this book. She’s such a fascinating character that even her train of thought fascinates and entertains me. Fun and great times is definitely what awaits you.

Book Cover - Right Kind of Wrong

Title: RIGHT KIND OF WRONG (Finding Fate #3)
Author: Chelsea Fine
Publisher: Forever
Publication Date: September 2, 2014

SYNOPSIS

Sometimes wrong can feel oh so right . . .

Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie.

Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

Review

More than just a road trip kind of story.

Right Kind of Wrong surprised me. In a really good way. Although I enjoyed reading the other books of this series, I’d definitely pick this one over the others. Right Kind of Wrong has more content, depth, tension (including sexual tension between Jenna and Jack) and element of surprise compared to the two.

Jenna is one of those fictional characters who have back stories which changed their life plans and led them to over think their decisions too much. She has this plan to stay away from love (or at least try to) in order to fulfill her dreams in life. I admire her for being that focused towards her goals but there were moments wherein I would love to be inside the pages of this book and be the one to shake Jenna’s shoulder. It’s given that she frustrated me to no end. But with her situation it somewhat made her character bearable for me to continue and read the book. Understanding her more quite lessen my frustration towards her.

For me, Jack’s character is a very refreshing one. He’s a tatted up, sexy and totally swoon-worthy hottie who’s vying for Jenna’s attention and trying to make her realize what he’s already offering to her. He’s pretty much dangling it in front of her face and just waiting when she’ll grab and hold on tight to it. I love the things that he does (which mostly annoys Jenna all the time) and the lengths that he’ll go through to pursue her. Some characteristics of Jack that really stood out were him being a very patient and persistent person which complements with how Jenna is. He was just the right guy to make her comprehend about everything.
