Review ~ All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover ~ added to my ALL TIME favourites shelf too!!


Book Description:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us—whose writing is “emotionally wrenching and utterly original” (Sarah Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series)—delivers a tour de force novel about a troubled marriage and the one old forgotten promise that might be able to save it.

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 5 stars


“…it’s hard to admit that a marriage might be over when the love is still there.”


This is a review that I needed to write as soon as I finished the book. Normally I like to sleep on it, let my thoughts and opinions roll around my head to come up with something interesting and relevant to say. However, no matter how much thinking I do, nothing, and I mean nothing, will ever come close to representing what I just read. Nothing I could say could do this book justice, it was just one of those books that touched me on such a deep, emotional level, that I cried and I mean I CRIED. I have not cried this much over a book EVER and that is saying something. But this book, THIS BOOK, just drained me of EVERY. SINGLE. EMOTION. The message was something I could relate to, but my ending was magical, and while this couple had their own different magical ending, the road to get there just grabbed at my heart and soul and never let go, it still hasn’t.


“When you meet someone who is good for you, they won’t fill you with insecurities by focusing on your flaws. They’ll fill you with inspiration, because they’ll focus on all the best parts of you.”


Colleen hoover delivers an unforgettable read and I mean UNFORGETTABLE. This will be one of those rare books that I put on my ALL-TIME list, a book that I will re-read time and time again. From the minute I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down, captivating, hypnotic, poignant, intense, brutally honest, raw, emotional, heart wrenching and yet one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. Beautiful, how so? Because this book is about true love. A love so intense, so finite and that soul mate connection we all want to find. A love that can stand the test of a category 6 and while their belief may get muddied, may be stretched to breaking point, maybe to the point of no return, that intrinsic love for one and other is what ultimately reigns supreme. A love so deeply embedded for one and other that no matter the crisis, no matter the crappy hand that you’ve been dealt, that LOVE is a permanent foundation, no wrecking ball has the power to destroy it and while it gives a good attempt at it, it doesn’t succeed.


“Our marriage hasn’t been perfect. No marriage is perfect. There were times when she gave up on us. There were even more times when I gave up on us. The secret to our longevity is that we never gave up at the same time.”


Graham and Quinn’s beginning is unconventional and yet while when they first meet may not have been their day, when their paths do cross again fate has definitely worked its magic. I adored Graham in this book, his personality shone through the pages, like this bright beacon of happy, hope and everything good in the world. His love for Quinn was ever present, he loves fiercely, he wore his heart on his sleeve and it just radiated off every single page, and yet the more the story progressed the more that light dimmed, but most importantly, it never went out. Graham wasn’t perfect, maybe for ninety-nine percent of the time he was, but when you are losing the one thing you love the most, desperate times call for desperate measures. He got a ten for the thought behind it, but a zero in execution.


“I love you more in this moment than any moment that has come before it.”


Quinn was in self-destruct mode in this book and it is one place that I could totally relate to. But this is where Colleen Hoover excelled, her portrayal of a woman in this position was honest, it was gritty, it was raw, it was warts and all. The gradual breakdown of Quinn and Graham’s marriage was a reaction to circumstance. A couple whose relationship was built on honesty and talking to one and other to one where they never talked at all. Those bottling up of emotions, thoughts and feelings that just multiply and multiply in your mind, until something relatively little, becomes a huge, huge problem. Where a couple that know what the other is thinking on a normal day, lose that ability and jump to all the wrong conclusions, they read the signs all wrong and the more they think, the more the problems manifest, the more they grow until the love is slowly pushed to the bottom and the problems just cascade over the top.


“Who are you right now? What did you do with my husband?”
“He’s probably somewhere with my wife. It’s been a while since I’ve seen her.”


Colleen Hoover is one master story-teller, the myriad of emotions she effortlessly puts you through while capturing a test in life that many couples face was nothing short of amazing. A test that many couples battle and one you will never truly understand until you find yourself in the same situation.  But Colleen Hoover goes out of her way to make you live it and she certainly succeeds. For a marriage to survive it is true what this author says, “if you only shine light on your flaws, all your perfects will dim,” and it is those perfects that you need to concentrate on. Remember the best times, the hard times are there to test us, speed bumps on the road trip of your life, but where you end up is the most important, don’t let those speed bumps derail you. Be happy, everyone deserves to be happy, and while sometimes you have to change your perception of happy, make a new one. Life is what you make it. Focus on all your perfects. What an unforgettable book!

Release Day Blitz, Review & Giveaway ~ Chasing Clouds by Kathryn Andrews


Title: Chasing Clouds
Author: Kathryn Andrews
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 19, 2018 
Cover Image: Perrywinkle Photography 
Cover Designer: Heart to Cover



Book Description:

Reid Jackson

I’m a simple guy. There are only two things I love: my family and playing professional football.

I may not understand why people get married, but I’d go anywhere for my brother, even his friend Camille’s wedding. Once I’m there, I realize our Bronx upbringing has left me unprepared for the world of old Southern money. Over twenty-four hours, I see scandal, threats, and lies. It’s a life I don’t relate to, a place I never want to belong. Even so, when the minister asks if anyone objects, I shock not only myself but also the beautiful bride when I stand up and say, “I do.” I don’t know her, she doesn’t know me—but deep down, I knew I had to make that move.


Camille Whitley

As a political socialite in the South, nothing about my life is simple.

For years I’ve known I’d one day be standing at the altar, about to marry a man I don’t love. In Savannah, family expectations and appearances are everything, but none of it’s real. I hate what I’ve become, and I dream of being free. So, when an opportunity suddenly presents itself in the form of a stranger with captivating green eyes, I find myself asking what’s best for me: the plan or the unknown? I don’t know him, he doesn’t know me—but if I’m going to make a move, it’s now or never.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***


“They say the bigger they are, the harder they fall, and I think the earth is still suffering from the shockwaves of this one.”


Kathryn Andrews is one of those authors I have read from her very first book. She was one of those authors whose writing I connected with and she never fails to deliver a book with great characters, emotion, heart, passion and love, and Chasing Clouds was no different.


“Music is the only thing that understands and can respond to all emotions of the heart. When you’re happy you hear the melody, when you’re angry you focus on the beat, and when you’re sad you listen to the lyrics.”


The fake husband trope has been exhausted but Kathryn Andrews brings her own spin on it marrying the affluent, southern girl to an NFL football player, going against the huge wants and expectations of her parents and everyone else in their stuck-up town. However, it is how they came to be married that had me hooked and seeing as that was how the book started I was sold all the way to the end.

Camille was a girl you couldn’t help but love, she had her past and Kathryn Andrews makes you wait for the killer blow but I had an inkling as to why she felt the need to appease the wants and forced marriage her parents wanted her to have. Camille felt this overwhelming responsibility even though it wasn’t hers to harbour.

Reid was a man that was all about the ball, women and definitely marriage were never on his radar until he found the need to be the only voice of reason in a really shitty situation, he surprised himself. Now stuck with a wife he didn’t want, he needs to keep up appearances but the more time he spends in Camille’s company the more the lines begin to blur.


“He’s just saved me and ruined me at the same time.”


I loved that this relationship starts as strangers, to friends to more and it was this slow build that led to some fantastically developed characters and ones that you couldn’t help but champion along from the very beginning. I loved that even though Camille was born into affluence, she was just a normal woman at heart who had her own ideals and aspirations and wanted so hard to keep to them.


“My favourite thing we did was everything, because I got to be with you.”


Their story is packed with familial conflict, a little angst and a whole lot of heart, chemistry and passion and Kathryn Andrews carves their story perfectly. While I feel there was some artistic license with the wedding it didn’t bother me at all and I just read it for the love story it was, who cares about the legalities. I loved the tension, the build-up, but most of all it was the development of the characters themselves.  These two had to love themselves before they could love another and it was this realisation that really opened the floodgates for one of the most romantic meet cutes and beautiful blossoming relationships I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Totally loved it.

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars


“Love can set you free, if you let it,”


I read this book,
I loved this book.
Unique in its delivery
Yet no less powerful.
Beautifully composed,
With honesty and passion.
One of a kind,
Unputdownable read.

A love story,
Written in verse.
Poetic.
Emotional.
Captivating.
Heart-breaking.


“And the moment that your body finally connects with mine,
Everything that was holding me together falls apart
And I lose all control
I lose everything to you.”


A story of love,
A summer romance…not.
A love so powerful it can
Consume.
Destroy.
Annihilate.


“You love so deeply
It’s your biggest strength
And deepest weakness
Because it can destroy you
Love can destroy you
And I just hope you don’t get scared
Because if you do
You’ll destroy me too.”


No names,
Just visceral emotions.
Raw.
Real.
Honest.
Painfully, painfully honest.

Love hurts,
Love is kind.
Love is passion.
Love is all-encompassing.
Love is the best feeling in the world,
Until it isn’t.


“We’re doomed to this endless pain
And that is our fate
And since you’ve accepted it
Then so should I
Because if you’ve given up on me
Why shouldn’t I give up on myself too?”


I’ve never read
Anything like this.
It took some getting used to.
But the emotions,
They bled.
You feel.
You hurt.
You hope.
Love conquers all.

I love poetry
This ticked my boxes.
So different.
Unique.
Understated.
Yet powerful.
Short.
Sharp.
Emotions.
So few words
Yet so full of meaning.
This won.
This slayed.
This was perfect.

Excerpt:

“May I get you something to drink while you wait for the rest of your party?” the waiter asked.
I would normally wait to see what the client did and follow his lead on alcohol. But tonight was not the norm.

I rubbed at my stiff neck. “I’ll take a vodka cranberry, please.”

I hoped it would help calm my nerves and release some of the tension in my jaw before I gave myself a full-blown headache. Taking out my phone, I started to scroll through emails to distract myself while waiting for my drink and dinner companion.

My head whipped up at the sound of Gray’s voice behind me. “Sorry I’m late.”

My heart unexpectedly fluttered, and I fought against the feeling of excitement. “Are you really? Because I get the sense you don’t have any manners after the way you interrupted me a million times today.”

He completely ignored my attitude as he took the seat across from me. “Traffic is a bitch getting downtown at this time. Next time we’ll have dinner at my place.”

“There won’t be a next time.”

Gray’s mouth curved into a smug smile as he snagged my gaze. “Sure there will. There’ll be plenty of next times. And eventually you’ll stop pretending you don’t enjoy my company.”

I hated that my body reacted to him. Right from the very start, we’d had a crazy chemistry between us that was difficult to dull.

I sighed. “What are you doing, Gray? Why did you come to my firm?”

He lifted the cloth napkin in front of him and laid it across his lap. “Isn’t that obvious? I need new legal representation.”

“At my firm? And you’d prefer that representation come from an associate instead of my boss’s boss—the head of our securities division? Or even from Pittman, who would gladly hold your hand and provide you whatever legal advice you need from his fifty-plus years of experience?”

“Loyalty is important to me. I want someone I can trust with my business.”

“And you’ve decided that’s me? An associate with five years experience who just got off probation with the Bar Association for violating attorney-client privilege?”
The waiter arrived with my drink. “Here you go, ma’am.” He turned to Gray. “May I get you something to drink? Or would you like to wait until the last of your party joins you this evening?”

“It’s just the two of us. I’ll have a Macallan, neat, please.”

“Coming right up.” The waiter walked around to the other side of the table and started to remove the third place setting.

I put my hand out, stopping him. “We actually do have another party coming, so you can leave that.”

“Very well.” He nodded.

Gray waited until the waiter was out of earshot. “I didn’t invite anyone else to dinner.”

I sipped my drink and offered a saccharine-sweet fake smile. “I did. Figured an important client like you should have more than one attorney to answer his questions.”

Just as I set down my glass, I saw the other man I was waiting for enter the restaurant. He scanned the room, looking for me, so I held up my hand and waved.

“Perfect timing. There’s Oliver now.”

Gray glanced at the man heading toward us and back to me. Instead of being pissed off, the jerk was amused. “That’s cute. You invited a chaperone because you don’t trust yourself with me.”   


We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of THE NAKED TRUTH.

Book Description:

Doug and Sophie from The Dance get to tell their own crazy, sexy, love story.

Sophie is an intelligent independent woman. After her parents’ divorce when she was a child, Sophie tossed the idea of “happily ever after” out the window. No personal attachments or commitments is the way she lives her life. After her best friend, Bryson reunited with her soulmate Hart, Sophie is forced to allow his friends into her world. Luckily, she is fond of her new circle of friends, except when it comes to one handsome, six foot, green eyed buffoon who won’t take no for an answer... Doug Truman.

Doug is everything women want in a man. He is a self-described hottie, very witty, and quite the charmer. He can’t imagine any woman not wanting his attention. And they do. The problem is, Doug has a very short attention span, except when it comes to one woman... Sophie Cipriano. At first all he wanted was one night, thinking it would be enough to shake his obsession. If only his best friend, Hart, hadn’t deemed Sophie off limits. Now Doug can’t get her off his mind or out of his system. 

When they met, they were enemies. When their best friends got married, they were acquaintances. When they became roommates, they got to be friends. And when they were friends, neither realized what was happening until it was too late.

Quit Your Pitchin' (There's No Crying in Baseball #2) by Lani Lynn Vale

Book Description:

What’s wrong with my butt?

She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can’t stop himself from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he’s seen in his life.

Apparently, answering her with ‘not a damn thing’ wasn’t what she was expecting.

She likely wasn’t expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.

All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over heels in love with Wrigley Field—and yes, that is her real name.

From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.

Not that he’s complaining or anything.

Who wouldn’t want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of the World Series?

The only problem is trying to convince her of that.

Two Weeks Notice by Whitney G

Book Description:

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from Parker International (& the arrogant, condescending CEO) effective two weeks from today.

This was a VERY EASY decision to make, as the past two years have been utterly miserable. I wish his next executive assistant all the luck in the world (she'll need it) and if my boss should need me to do anything over the next two weeks, kindly tell him that he can do it [his] goddamn self...

Sincerely (Not Really),
Tara Lauren

That’s the version of my two weeks’ notice I should’ve sent to my boss, because the more professional version—the one where I said I was "grateful for all the opportunities," and "honored by all the rewarding experiences" over the years?

That letter was rejected with his sexy, trademark smirk and an “I highly suggest you read the fine print of your contract...”

So, I did.

And now I've realized that unless I fake my death, poison him, or find a way to renegotiate my impossible contract, I’m stuck working under one of the cockiest and most ruthless bosses in New York.

Then again, I thought that was the case until he called me late last night with an emergency proposition...

Our Review:

***ARC received for an honest review***


“Fucking Greyson hard was the way to get rid of Damon. This new Thing craved danger.”


This series is incredibly addictive and as soon as each new instalment drops onto my kindle I’m on it. Greyson and Caden’s story is not easy, but to be honest, I don’t expect anything less from CD Reiss. When this author takes something on, she goes all in, warts and all and in my opinion, this series is CD Reiss at her best. The next book cannot come quick enough.

Broken Edge picks up where On the Edge finished and for those that have read this series piece meal like me, you knew that Greyson was not going to take it sitting down and she doesn’t disappoint. The love that these two have for each other holds no bounds and in all honesty that could be their greatest demise, especially given how this book ends. CD Reiss certainly knows how to keep her readers on the edge and that was definitely how I ended up reading this one.


“My bones were made of iron filings and he was a magnet, drawing my body’s brittleness to the surface.”


For me, the intensity that the previous instalments had wasn’t as prevalent but given the situation that these two now find themselves in maybe that isn’t surprising, however I wanted to feel that when they were actually together. This book is set in similar circumstances to the prequel being that we are back out in the battle ground and that intensity remained.


“…but between us? It’s older. Bigger. My cells are tied to yours…I know you’re still there. Your strength keeps me upright when I think I’ll fall. I can’t shake you or forget you, because you run through my veins.”


There are so many characters I still do not trust, some old and some new and it is this that really had my grey matter whirling a mile a minute trying to read between the lines and look for ulterior motives. CD Reiss really nails this aspect and definitely has you chewing your nails throughout.

Greyson has always been strong willed, head strong and assertive when she needs to be, the bedroom excluded of course, we know she lets her guard down there 😉. However, her tenacity in this book and her fearless attitude is what really comes to the fore and the decisions she makes…well, makes for some entertaining reading even if a few more grey hairs have sprouted since. But despite all that, the love that she has for husband is what really shines through.


“I love you, Caden.”
“I know you do. No one would do such stupid shit unless they were in love.”


Surprisingly, Caden is a little quiet in this book, but considering what happens, he won’t be for long. I can’t even anticipate which way book four is going to go. I assume nothing when it comes to this author. I just cannot wait and hope upon hope that somehow, these two, can find their well-deserved happily ever after.

About the Author:


CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
