Review: Hawaiian Heartbreak

Hawaiian Heartbreak Hawaiian Heartbreak by Libby Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

This book really surprised me, I thought it was going to be an ok book, but I wasn't expecting to like it this much. This books is a light fun reading, perfect for a beach day, for the weekend or those days when you're not having such a good time. At least it was to me. I have one complaint though, ok, maybe two and I must WARN you...
1. It's short and it leaves you wanting more, because there's some cliffhanger, which was awesome by the way.
2. An the other warning is that Damn! While I was reading it all I wanted was to be on a beach, white sand blue waters, some fruity drink with an umbrella and handsome boy by my side fanning me... LOL, dreams, dreams!

I loved all the things Hawaii, the author certainly knew her facts, it definitely made me want to go there and enjoy all the wonderful places and food (PINEAPPLE!!!)
The romance was fun, I liked the male lead and also the female, I think we need more insight and a little bit more deep thoughts in both of them for the next one, that's what I'd like at least. The sex was hot and I'm really looking forward to read the next books in the series. I wish they're coming out soon.

I think this author is a promising one, I'm gonna be watching you Libby! Besides, I'd really like to hear more about New Zealand :)

Review: Worth It

Worth It Worth It by Linda Kage
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, that was incredible!

I think this might be the best book on the series so far. It was written amazingly. I loved that the story was written between past and present and I must admit though that it kind of annoyed me at one point when I was really into the story and then the chapter ended and we had to go back to the past instead of continuing where the chapter left off, but to be honest I think that added something more to the book and the fact that the chapter that tell us the past was always related to what was happening in the chapter from the present was kind of awesome. The story itself was quite complex, I loved the characters what they went through, how they dealt with things and how they healed. At some point when I was finishing the book I might have thought things happened really quick but then I counted the chapters from the past and it was really a story that went through 6 years, so it wasn't quick at all.

I was so glad to get to know these characters, at first I was doubtful since they were new characters to the series and I was afraid we wouldn't see much of the other characters we met before, but they were there doing they're thing and being a family as always and I loved it.
I think the author outdid herself with this one, it was kind of different, it was better, no, actually it was the best and it surprise me and it seriously left very high expectations to how the next book is going to be. I really can't wait to see Asher Hart's story specially with that epilogue!

Amazing book totally recommended to you all, but please start with the beginning of the series 'Price of a Kiss' so you get to know all the other characters and the relationship between them, it's really cool.

Review: Just a Little Kiss by Renita Pizzitola

Just a Little Kiss Just a Little Kiss by Renita Pizzitola
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loveeeeed it!

I really liked the book, the romance, how it plays, the chemistry between the characters, the few messed up things that happen and the cute little things too. It's a really good story, entertaining and fun, a light read but a realistic one, something you can relate to, it's about two normal people trying to live normal life, with all that encompasses, with no unnecessary drama. Sometimes these "normal" kind of books are underestimated and we got some stories that have so much going on and they get so repetitive! So it's really nice to have something like this. And I LOVED IT!

I really don't have much to say, but I'm telling you this:
I have this little notebook and pen on my night stand, next to my kindle so I can take notes on it about the books I'm reading to make my reviews later and remember things. If I don't use that notebook it's usually because it's a book from an author I know and love and don't have to say anything about it or because I absolutely loved the book and there's nothing to add. In the particular case of this book I only added 2 things:

-I feel really connected to Felicity the leading female, and her fear of failure and to try out new things, I totally get it, I am that way too. Also, I see that she guards herself a lot and damn that is so me and I'm not proud of it but I relate to it, to her anxiety, to her over-thinking things, so that makes this book super special to me.

- I really love the friendship between Felicity and Isla, I love how Isla encourages Felicity to improve, to be better, to get out of her comfort zone and she reassures Felicity about the possibility about a better future. She's the best BFF!

I'd like to add that this series has really grown on me with each book, this is probably my favorite of them and I think I see a growth in the author, or maybe it's because I like it more with every new book but whatever it is I really recommend it!

I was giving an e-copy of this book for a honest review.

Review: Paper Hearts by Claire Contreras

My Review: 5 of 5 stars!

"I lost her. No, I didn't lose her. I threw her away. She was my best friend. I was never supposed to fall in love with her. I was careless. She was heartbroken. I was doing fine until she came back into my life and reminded me what love was supposed to feel like. When it's all said and done, she may not want to stay, but this time I'm going to do everything in my power to not let her go"
 Paper Hearts releases on September 9th.

I finished the book a few hours ago and all I can say is that it was everything I hoped it was and more. This is the story of Mia and Jensen, and how after years apart they found each other again after a lot of pain and heartache. The question is Will Mia be able to stay for good or is the past too still too fresh for her?

Let's start at the beginning though... Have you seen Claire's covers? Well I think the cover of this book was the first clue of how amazing it was gonna be...

Claire has a very special way of writing, I think her writing is complex and to be honest at the first few pages of the book it was hard for me to concentrate and follow her, not because it wasn't good or difficult but because it required my whole attention and my mind was all over the place for some reason. And besides, English is not my first language and I'm still trying to get better at it everyday. But then I started appreciating this writing, the complexity and beyond that the meaning of the book. I can say that this story was a Romance story, in the category of New Adult. As you must know, if you've read my blog or previous reviews, those are my favorite kinds of books, but this one, this one I loved it because it was much more than that. 
The story was awesome, it was good, it had my heart sweating and beating and all worked up, my eyes filled with tears more than once even though they didn't fell. And sometimes I found myself smiling at the screen on my e-reader and sighing happily, but what really conquered me and made me gave the book 5 stars were the deep meanings on it, the deep thoughts, the lessons that I could take from it. I even wrote them on a notebook while reading, so here they are.

- It has really deep thoughts on life, love and society and the only way I can explain this right now without making this too long is by writing this quotes from Mia.

"We were all confused together, and ultimately, all lost together, despite our ages, races, genders and anything else that set us apart" 
Mia while people watching and taking pictures and analysing people, society and life. I loved this quote because it matches what I think on these subjects and it reached to me.

"Some might argue I never fell out of him, but I didn't think love was about falling in or out; it was about staying in. And we didn't" 
I loved this realisation of Mia while thinking of her relationship of Jensen, I never thought about it that way and I like that kind of thinking even though I know it might not be always that way.

- I felt this book was a journey, for the characters-specially Mia. A journey of forgiveness, to the one who she felt did her wrong and to herself. It's about recognizing you're stuck with something, a situation, a person and that something it's not letting you be happy and live your life to the fullest. It's a journey of moving on with your resentment and sadness and also a tale of second chances.

- It's also about loving someone so much, maybe too much, yet still knowing what and who you're with or without them and loving your self the same way.

- It showed me that sometimes all you need is someone to keep fighting for you when you can't, someone who doesn't give up on you, on them, even if you did, but that eventually it's you, and only you, the one who has to fight for yourself, for your love and the life you want to live.

So after all these items... How could I have not love the book? It was impossible not to, it was this awesome!

P.S: And all those Game of Thrones references and mentions... I totally loved that!!!

August's BOTM: Favorite Books of the Month

So I skipped July's BOTM... But you know what's funny? I had it on a Draft and totally forgot to published it.... Silly Me!

Anyway, here's my Favorite read books of August, I read a lot more, as you can see on the bottom of my page, but here are my faves and the ones I thought deserve my mention:

Source: jilliandodd.net
1. That Baby by Jillian Dodd (That Series)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was actually gonna go on July's FOTM because I read the first books of THAT SERIES that month, but since I forgot to post it I'm gonna leave it here now.

I thought these book were beautiful. Really cute story, with lots of funny moments, and a few tough ones too. I can honestly say that they made me laugh, made me sob (notice I say sob, not cry), and made me smile and fall in love with the characters in a really deep way. I think the leading female is wonderful, she has humour and wit and I just really love her. It was a perfect story to read at night before going to bed, on the beach or wherever, while wishing for better and happier things in life. The first book is That Boy where the female characters goes through life with two best friends, both male, we see how she grows up with them and then one of them turnes out to be THE ONE for her.Next in the series is That Wedding, it follows right where That Boy left off and shows how the characters go through the planning of the wedding, we see their doubt, their love, their fights, their frustrations, their insecurities and dealing with things that weren't dealt in the previous book. It's equally beautiful and leads to the last book released on August 10th called That Baby, here we see the process of pregnancy and how relationships change and develop now that they're married and expecting a child, the preparation and the fears that comes with that. Also there's the delivery of said child and there might be some drama that ends up beautifully. I really reccommend this book to you guys, it's a funny and pretty story about love, life and family :)

2. The Fill-in Boyfriend by Kasie West

The Fill-In Boyfriend
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was such a great reading. I was done in one sitting, it just felt too short and I wish there was more, I want to know more about Bec and see how things progress between Gia and Hayden :) it was awesome! A young story, with lots of chemistry and some deep thoughts there too, a little bit of comedy and since it's a YA book there's not steamy or smut and when I read it I was in need of a break of the Adult books. I think this book left room to explore more of the characters since they were gonna head to college and stuff and it left open doors to explore the secondary characters too. I really recommend it if you're in need of something light, fun and good.

With Me in Seattle series by Kristen Proby

This is a series of 8 books plus a novella. I rated them from 3 to 5 stars, there were things that annoyed me, there were things that I loved, there were characters that charmed me and others that I didn't care at all for them. However what it makes it worth of posting here is that I love the fact that one of the biggest aspects of the series besides love and romance is that is a series about friendship and family, and I not mean the type of family build because of blood ties, but because of bonds that are beyond genetics. This series shows a family built on trust, on friendship, on love and that makes it a hell of a strong one, one I hope I can have one day along with my biological one. So I recommend it to all of you who loves books about family and friendship and romance. Also there's smut and erotic scenes which makes it really hot. ;)
