Book Review + Excerpt: The Accidental Girlfriend by Emma Hart

TAGlive2

THE ACCIDENTAL GIRLFRIEND - DRAFT1 (1)

The Accidental Girlfriend, an all-new hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won’t just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.

He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

(Sinners of Saint #1)
by L.J. Shen

Emilia

They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares. He is a brilliant lawyer. A skilled criminal. A beautiful liar. A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.

Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.

Vicious

She is a starving artist. Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom. Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down. She paid the price.

Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate. That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t. So she hates me. Big fucking deal. She better get used to me.

Gift Guide under 50

Vicious is vicious. For real.

“Nobody’s all good, just like nobody’s all bad.”, said by Vicious in the book and Emilia’s answer captured the exact feeling that I have towards him, “Sometimes I think you’re all bad,”.

Vicious, its story and characters got my head spinning and feelings all over the place. Everything about it got me all turned up. Everything is so complicated and so fcked up. Most of the time that I was reading it, it felt like I’m in a constant battle with my heart, mind and morals.

Vicious is a thought provoking novel, sure. But all the more, it will make you question yourself and your morals.

It’s a tough read, for me.

ONE LITTLE LIE by Whitney Barbetti

Genre: New Adult
Release Date: June 27th, 2019

𝐁𝐥𝐮𝐫𝐛:

Adam Oliver 𝘩𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 me. Loathed my very existence. He had every right to, but that didn’t make my life any easier the afternoon I had to rescue him on the side of the road.

But worse than rescuing a guy who hated me to his core was the lie I told my parents.

Because I’d just told them that my long-term boyfriend was finally back in town.

My long-term boyfriend who didn’t actually exist.

The one named Adam Oliver—the guy I’d crushed on all through high school.

So the real Adam had no idea that he and I were engaged in a years-long, committed, serious relationship.

And, somehow, some way, I needed to convince him to play along with my one little lie.

Cover Reveal: Coldhearted Boss by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, COLDHEARTED BOSS, releases June 6th! See the gorgeous cover below and find out more about COLDHEARTED BOSS!

 ColdheartedBossEbookAbout COLDHEARTED BOSS
(available June 6th)

I’m desperate and destitute when Lockwood Construction rolls into my small town with an offer too good to pass up: high wages to any able-bodied man willing to join their crew.

Say no more. I throw on baggy clothes, tuck my long hair under a baseball hat, and apply for a job. Unfortunately, my half-baked idea of disguising myself as a guy is flawed from the beginning. As Shakira says, these hips don’t lie.

Still, I like to think I might have pulled the whole thing off save for one thing:

I know my boss.

Last month, we met at a bar, and after a fiery first encounter, it seems we’re destined to be sworn enemies.

Ethan Stone is ruthless and arrogant, a man I never would have crossed had I known how much he likes to toy with his prey.

He should just fire me and be done with it. Instead, he decides to make me his personal slave. Oh right, I think they’re calling it personal “assistant” these days.

It’s torture, all of it—his bad attitude, his ruggedly chiseled face, his desire to grind me into dust.

Every one of our friction-filled battles burns hotter than the last.

A girl can only hold out for so long. Soon, I’m bound to go up in flames.

My objective? Survive the heat long enough to send home a paycheck.

My real objective? Stop having X-rated fantasies about my coldhearted boss.

COLDHEARTED BOSS releases June
6th

ARC Review | The Risk (Briar U #2) by Elle Kennedy

41032121

SYNOPSIS

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes…

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

After months of waiting for the release of The Risk, it has graciously landed on my Kindle app. All thanks to Nina Bocci for the ARC. Thank you. Thank you. As I publish this post, maybe The Risk has reached your Kindles too! All the waiting for its release is worth it, I tell you.

I’ve been an avid reader of Elle Kennedy since she released The Deal and the rest of her Off-Campus Series. I love the way she writes, how real and fun her stories are. She got me so hooked with her college and hockey-based stories, friendship and couples and so there were no questions asked when she dropped Briar U series. I know I need to read it. I know I need to sign up for the ARC of this book.

The Chase, the first book of Briar U series, was an okay read for me. I wasn’t that crazy over Summer and Fitz. Me thinks that I should reread it and thoroughly reflect on my thoughts about it once again, though. But one thing that I know and clearly remember about that book was – how I was seriously teased by Brenna Jensen and Jake Connelly. Every time they show up, I just want them to go and make out already. That’s how high the tension between them is. From that point, I know and I’m very confident that they’d be taking the next story of the series. Because how can Elle Kennedy waste such characters and steam like that, right? The exact moment they encountered each other, I know they were going to be such an explosive duo. The question left there is – how will their characters get tangled up?

Kennedy drops The Risk’s synopsis and all I focus on is “I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend. For every fake date…he wants a real one.”. Basically, aside from Enemies to Lovers trope that would fit them, we also get fake dating. Imagine the tension from all sides and the headlines: Brenna Jensen, the daughter of Briar U’s hockey coach, goes out on a date with Jake Connelly, Harvard’s team captain and star foward, her enemy (her hockey team’s rival).

The Chase perfectly built up the tension, chemistry and burn that exists between Brenna and Connelly and it was so easy to slip into The Risk. She’s feisty. He’s cocky. Together, they are such a riot. We already have a grasp of their characters and making every scene that transpire between them a very anticipating one. Every scene feels like it is a climax.

Please proceed with caution as some parts may have the teeny tiniest spoilers.
