The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost is her first YA novel. I have been putting off reviewing this book for a few months because Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors and this book was a huge disappointment to me. What is it about? The Beautiful Ashes is about a young teen (adopted) who has the power to see otherworldly things (i.e. ghosts, different places not seen by other normal humans). When her sister is kidnapped and her foster parents die of a car accident, Ivy is left alone and vows to find out what happened. Because of her investigations, […]

My Thoughts Tease by Sophie Jordan is the second book in The Ivy Chronicles series (Foreplay #1, Wild #3) and is my favorite of the three. The heroine in this book is Emerson, the tease/flirt/party girl who acts like she doesn’t have a care in the world. However, she hides a deep dark secret that she has kept from her closest friends. While at a biker bar, Emerson gets uber drunk and starts a brawl causing her so-called friends to abandon her. She gets rescued by our hero, Shaw who also has a chip on his shoulder. He is an […]
My Thoughts I was really surprised that I enjoyed Wild (Ivy Chronicles #3) by Sophie Jordan. So much so that I read the whole series! I really loved the story of the three best friends: Pepper, Emerson, and Georgia! Foreplay focuses on Pepper’s love story to bartender/owner Reece. When shy Pepper finds out that the love of her life, her best friend’s brother breaks up with his serious girlfriend, she sees it as a sign! She has been in love with Hunter since she was in high school and now wants him all to herself. But wait! She has no experience in […]
My Thoughts Wild by Sophie Jordan is the third book in The Ivy Chronicles series. This is the first book in the series that I read and can be read as a stand-alone. Characters from the previous two books pop in and out all throughout the book but they do not add to any confusion if you haven’t read the other books. I initially read this book because I was interested about the plot. Who doesn’t want to read about a good girl paired with a bad boy? I also do not read a lot of contemporary romance and surprisingly, […]
This was a very quick and refreshing read for me. I actually enjoyed the story despite thinking the female protagonist to be a bit dense but I guess, the author had to use someone who wasn’t as tech savvy as the male protagonist. Despite that issue, I enjoyed it and read it in just one sitting. Noah Frellish, Billionaire CEO, helps Michelle Kolson one night while she was working late. He introduces himself as “Sark” (his gaming handle), when he sees that the new employee doesn’t recognize him. Michelle, on the other hand, finds herself attracted to this geek and […]
I read this book in a few short hours and I thought it was okay. I decided to buy this novella because I had already read the first book in the series, When in Paris… and I was very interested about Rebecca and Scott’s story. We first meet the two in the When in Paris… where there appeared to be tension between the two.
The book starts in French class when Olivia Montgomery locks eyes with Zachary Pearson her longtime high school crush. Unbeknownst to Olivia, Zach also shares the same attraction but was giving her the cold/cool attitude because he couldn’t act on his feelings. Apparently, Olivia’s mother had an affair with his uncle which resulted in divorce. As a result, he was trying to deny his attraction to her and was pretty much indifferent. Their friendship started when April, Olivia’s best friend invited her to have dinner with another friend Troy, Zach’s roommate. April and Troy try to match them up together […]
