Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Author: Kasie West 
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.

I have a love-hate relationship with contemporary romance. When it works, it makes my day and when it doesn’t it makes me want to commit redrum. Luckily, this one fell in the former category. I had smile on my face throughout. It’s a boy-meets-girl story, but there are certain things that set it apart. 
Caymen’s mother has warned her about these rich guys, like her father, who leave when things get too rough. So obviously she maintains a distance from the rich spoiled brats of the town but when Xander enters her little doll shop and she gets to know him. She realizes that her mother’s bias may not be fair and that Xander is different. They get to know each other through these “career days” and I have to say that I’m so impressed with Xander and all the effort and thought he put for Caymen. I mean that guy is pretty close to perfect. *swoons* 

Caymen is endearing. Her sarcasm and dry humor is exceptional and her timing is perfect. 

“Is that your subtle way of saying you missed me last week?”“I’ve missed my hot chocolate. I just think of you as the guy who brings it to me. Sometimes I forget your name and call you hot chocolate guy.”

“So Caymen…”
“So, Xander…”
“Like the islands.”
“Your name. Caymen. Like the Cayman Islands. Is that your mom’s favourite place to visit or something?”
“No, it’s her third favourite place. I have an older brother named Paris and an older sister named Sydney.”
“Wow.” He opens the bag, takes out a muffin, and hands it to me. The top glistens with sprinkled sugar. “Really?”
I gently unwrap it. “No.”

The romance progressed beautifully. I loved their conversations, how she made him laugh, how he gave her hot chocolate every morning, how she made fun of him. I loved them together. I’m so rooting for them.

The secondary characters were interesting. I wanted certain relationships to be explored more, mainly that of Xander and his father. I loved the writing. Kasie West is definitely a great writer because this is an average story, with nothing really “new” about it but she made it work so very well that I did not get bored for even a moment. I flew through the book. I didn’t want it to end. 

The book was sweet and it puts you in the good mood, where you want to giggle and sigh and just smile like I’m doing right now. 

Blog Tour Review: Stitch by Samantha Durante

Blog Tour Review: Stitch by Samantha Durante

Tour hosted by CBL Tour Host

Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa’s body screams at her to run… but yet she’s powerless to move.Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees – and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell – Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.Because what Alessa hasn’t figured out yet is that she’s not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university’s idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface…The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.


I get so happy when a book manages to surprise me and forces me to keep reading it till the end. This is that kind of book that it will immerse you into its world and will have you turning pages quickly.

This is me while reading the book, 

 photo tumblr_mdawwuKFoe1rrc78e_zps74e116c8.gif

I was following Alyssa’s journey to understand why she was the only one seeing a ghost in her room and suddenly BAM! There is a twist and the whole story suddenly changes and goes from paranormal to dystopian.  I like when authors give me the unexpected. I know that I’m being vague but I don’t want to spoil the book for you. Read it fast so we can discuss it. It will blow your mind, take my word. 
Samantha is a great story-teller. She gives you what is required and keeps you guessing. This book is extremely entertaining. It has some sci-fi aspect to it too which I found really intriguing. I’m not much into it so that’s saying a lot. The beginning is a little slow but after the revelation everything just becomes so clear. It’s like a fog is lifted and I had this “Oh” moment where I understood certain things that didn’t make sense to me before. I like how the author tied up all the loose ends.

I think the concept is really original and interesting. The romance is sweet but I would have liked more scenes of Alessa and Issac together. More conversations, perhaps. But the plot is the main hero of the book. I liked what I saw of Jo and Janie was just amazing. There were moments when I didn’t understand Alessa’s reaction to certain things but she has been through a lot so I’m trying not be too hard on her. 

I’m excited about the next book. It will be hard task for the author to live up to this one and surprise me again. If you want to read something new and different. Give this book a try. 🙂

Few Are Angels: Book Review + Interview!

Few Are Angels: Book Review + Interview!

                              Author: Inger Iversen       
                  Buy: The Book Depository || Amazon

After a fatal hit and run accident, Ella Monroe fears that she’s lost more than her beloved parents. Horrifying visions of a past life and a disturbing voice in her head have psychiatric professionals convinced that she’s lost her sanity as well. But when Kale–a dark and handsome stranger with a mysterious past–reveals the true meaning of her visions and the tremendous power she wields through them, Ella must come to terms with the devastating truths of her own past, while eluding an ancient Dark Prince who seeks to control not only her future, but all of mankind’s, by means of abilities that Ella is only beginning to understand.

I liked it. The plot is interesting and almost all the characters are likeable. Each chapter in the book begins with a quote and that’s something really cool. The story is original and the writing is good. Though editing could be better. The beginning had me hooked and the ending left me so many questions. I want the next book.

The prologue and epilogue are really interesting. The middle part of the story is a little dragged but it never gets boring. The romance between Ella and Kale was a little rushed. I am not a fan of insta love but I guess in this case it makes sense because they have a history together, literally!

Ella, the MC is a well developed character. She just lost her parents and is trying to cope up with the loss. I could feel her pain and sadness. Some things just shake life so hard that it gets really difficult to go back to normal.
So, my favorite character would be Alex. He is Ella’s best friend and is also kinda in love with her. He is really cute and if the next book has a love triangle I would be on his side. No offense Kale, you’re hot and mysterious. I am sure you will find many loyal followers! 😀
Jace is from the Council of Immortals and is trying to protect Ella. He doesn’t like Kale much. I am hoping to see more of him in the next book.
Seriously, this book is filled with swoon worthy guys. 😉
Mia was a little annoying at times. But she grows on me and I guess I like her, but she should stay away from Alex or else….. *mwahaha* (that’s my evil laughter, if you didn’t know)
Laurent is the bad guy. He is creepy and scary and is called “The Dark Prince” (Yes, I know!)
The chapters from his POV were interesting.
So all in all this is good book and I suggest this to anyone who loves fantasy.

I have the author Inger Iversen, for a quick interview. Read on!.

<!–[if !mso]>st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I live in Virginia Beach about ten minutes away from the beach. I live with my tree huggin’ boyfriend and chubby cat, Max.
What do you do when you are not writing?
When I’m not writing I’m usually reading.  Lately, I haven’t had time to read, but I normally spend a lot of time in Barnes and Noble or browsing the Kindle store on Amazon. I also work full-time at a chainsaw factory. When I tell people that they are always amazed, but I have to say that it’s pretty easy work. I make the small plastic parts that come together to make the whole unit.
How did you come up with the idea of “Few Are Angels”?
It came to me in a dream. I ignored it for a while because I was in the middle of writing Dream Walker, but once Few Are Angels started invading my daydreams I put it on paper.
Do you have a favorite scene or character from this book?
I love all of the characters, but I do have a major soft spot for Alex. He reminds me of my younger brother. I have a few things planned for him in second and final book of the series.
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
I work 12 hours a day, but it’s a rotating shift so I only work 15 days a month. I also work overnight and I keep the same hours on my off days. Most nights I stay up until four in the morning and depending on how motivated I am, I can write just about all night.
Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?
Yes, I have suffered from writers block and it was horrible. I was at the halfway point with Few Are Angels and I put it down for a few months. I didn’t know where to go next and my brain was no help at all.  Few Are Angels took a year to finish and it was partly because of writers block, but I stepping away from it for a bit was a good thing. When I came back to it my head was clear and I was able to get over the hurdle.
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult? 

My favorite book from high school is Of Mice and Men, but there are more recent books that I love like the Pace series by Shelena Shorts and Kissed by an Angel series by Elizabeth Chandler.
What can we expect from the upcoming books in the “Few Are Angels” series?
In the next book I introduce a few new characters from the Council of Immortals and also from Kale’s past. In Awakened, Ella learns the truth about her parent’s deaths while Alex realizes what he has to do save Ella and Kale struggles with La Luxure, his Blood Lust. 

Besides this series, what other projects are you working on?

I have a lot of ideas, but I can only write but so fast. I have a series that I started before Few Are Angels called, Dream Walker and I plan to polish it up and publish it sometime next year. I also have a new project that I am working on a called Ena’s Wolf, here is the synopsis:

The students of Hovsgrove High aren’t letting the recent deaths of two students ruin their summer and why should they? It’s not like the deaths are related or caused by an evil presence prowling in the night, right? Summer vacation before senior year was supposed to be one of the best times in Ena’s life. Summer parties, cook-outs, hanging out at Mackie’s—a pool hall in Hovsgove, with her cousin Vi and best friend T.W. was all ruined in a matter of minutes. The last day of school proves to be the worst day of Ena’s life when she witnesses a student chased into the woods and killed by an obscenely large dog. After the “incident” the only thing that Ena gets to see for the first three weeks of her summer is the inside of her bedroom. When no body is found and Ena can’t explain why she made up a story about a dog attack/murder, she ends up grounded and an outcast with the kids in school. Her only hope to salvage the rest of her summer vacation after her three week prison sentence is over is her cousin Vi and best friend T.W. The energetic, smart mouthed New Yorker Vi not only convinces Ena to sneak out to one of the best parties of the summer, but also convinces her to investigate the murdered student herself. Neither girl nor T.W.  knows what is in store for them and as they start asking questions they find out that there are missing teens that the residents don’t know about. How could the HPD have missed this key information that a sixteen year and her friends uncover in a matter of days? Are the police really doing all they can to find the missing kids or is there something dangerously making its way throughout Hovsgrove and stealing teens in the night, without the fear of justice?

Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
                            Keep writing and always be yourself.
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Most women would probably be offended at being mistaken for a stripper, but Kit Conner finds the situation rather comical. But despite Kit’s outward appearance of being able to handle just about anything, few are aware of the dark secrets Kit harbors and the demons she hides by cloaking herself in a wall of crazy antics and an outrageous fashion sense. As she returns to her hometown to play the role of maid of honor for her best friend’s wedding, Kit’s determined to hold on to those she holds dear for as long as she can. The only thing standing in her way is the absurd attraction she feels for Benjamin Mathews. 

Benjamin Mathews is a guy who appreciates things to be slow, steady, and safe. Ben knows many consider him to be boring, but he’s happy with his life and loves the horse ranch he runs with his brother. The only thing he worries about is surviving the planning of his brother’s wedding.
With a wedding between Kit’s best friend and Ben’s younger brother fraying the nerves of everyone involved, Kit’s return home brings out her dark secrets into the light. The emotional overload starts to weigh on Kit and she begins to see Ben as an anchor.

Review: The Golden Lily

Review: The Golden Lily

AuthorRichelle Mead 
Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students–children of the wealthy and powerful–carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

OMG! The ENDING…….. 
The next book comes out in 2013. 
What if the world ends Mead? What if I can’t read the book?? My life will lose all its purpose. How can you do that?

Okay, enough with my drama!
I loved this book. I was so disappointed with Bloodlines that I had almost given up on the series. Thank God I didn’t. Because this is exactly what I wanted (okay…..not really exactly, but still, it’s awesome)

Adrian, oh Adrian!
Come out of the book , please!
He is so hot, witty, charming, sarcastic but behind all that he is a great person. He is protective, caring, loyal and wonderful. He will do anything for the people he loves and it’s really sad that the those around him do not understand his worth. 

Sydney has grown as a character and I really liked her. She is smart, brave, kind, loyal and most importantly Adrian likes her. 
I also think that it’s about time Adrian moved on. He deserves happiness and Sage is good for him. I absolutely adored the scenes when they were together. 
This book compensates for bloodlines in the romance department. There is enough to have you swooning. The chemistry is so hot and sizzling that it threatens to set the air on fire.
*Spoiler: Highlight/Select to see the quote*
“He reached out and pulled me to him, one hand on my waist and the other behind my neck. He tipped my head up and lowered his lips to mine. I closed my eyes and melted as my whole body was consumed in that kiss. I was nothing. I was everything. Chills, ran over my skin, and fire burned inside me. His body pressed closer to mine, and I wrapped my arms around his neck. His lips were warmer and softer than anything I could have ever imagined, yet fierce and powerful at the same time. Mine responded hungrily, and I tightened my hold on him. His fingers slid down the back of my neck, tracing its shape, and every place they touched was electric.”
Jill is less annoying. Maybe, because she is not around much. ( I like that, let’s just keep it this way) 
Eddie is awesome and Angeline was fun. Almost, all the characters were likeable. They make a great team.  

Now, there is less action in the book compared to VA but I am not complaining. 
Sage is still a little slow is figuring things out and putting the pieces together. But this book is not as predictable as Bloodlines.
The writing is good and dialogues are amazing, as always. 

“I’d mentioned this odd wardrobe choice to Adrian a couple of weeks ago:
“Isn’t Dimitri hot?”
Adrian’s response hadn’t been entirely unexpected:
“Well, yeah, according to most women, at least.”

Really, Sage? A date?”
I sighed. “Yes, Adrian. A date.”
“A real date. Not, like, doing homework together,” he added.
“I mean like where you go out to a movie or something. And a
movie that’s not part of a school assignment. Or about something boring.”
“A real date.”

“Adrian ordered a martini, earning disapproving looks from his father and me.
“It’s barely noon,” said Nathan.
“I know,” said Adrian. “I’m surprised I held out that long too.” 

I will be re-reading this book till the next one comes out. 2013, really?

Welcome to my stop on ILYF blog tour hosted by the wonderful author Reena Jacobs. There is a new cover and awesome giveaways to mark the one year anniversary of “I LOVED YOU FIRST.” 

What do you think of the cover?

Alexandria (Alex) Carmichael guards two secrets close to her heart. One―she’s in love with her best friend, Seth. Two―he’s gay. As a freshman in college, Alex looks forward to fun times with her best friend. When Seth decides cycling through girlfriends is the way to fit in with the straight crowd, Alex must make a choice: watch Seth give his affection to another while her heart breaks or come clean with her feelings and risk losing his friendship forever. 
I LOVED YOU FIRST is a new adult love story told through the eyes of Alex, an African-American/Caucasian student, who takes a journey of self-discovery while watching her best friend come to terms with his sexuality.

Being in love with your best friend is complicated and it makes matter worse if your best friend is gay!
Alex has been in love with Seth. She cherishes the small amount of time they spend together even if it doesn’t lead into anything. She is happy just being his side-kick. He drags her to parties and games and she goes with him, always beside her and somehow she has lost herself in his shadow. 
I liked Alex.  She is shy and scared of facing the world on her own. I could connect with her. She cares about Seth and stands by him. I though she was brave and really nice. 
Seth, um…..ok I need to be honest, he seemed like a jerk to me, yes, I know he went through a lot and was scared and confused. But I didn’t like the way he treated Alex.  To be fair, what he went through was really harsh. How can people be so mean? He doesn’t deserve it. Nobody deserves this.
The writing is good and novel is gripping. The characters are well developed and the plot is interesting.
The story is short and doesn’t drag unnecessary. It’s a really fast read. I finished it in a day. I though the novel was realistic and the characters and their problems were dealt with nicely. Trinity is a great character. She is fun and cheerful with a lot of spark. I really like her. I liked how the book ended. Alex grows up and comes out of her shell. It was a satisfying end to a good story. Alex goes through some ups and downs but she never just gives up and that is admirable, even when the people are rude she still gives them a chance. I liked that about her.

Is it a good idea to pursue a dating relationship with a friend? And why/why not?
I think love is all about taking chances. Friendship can be the first step towards love and I strongly believe that if you like someone you should go ahead and tell them. You never know, they might feel the same way.
So, yes, it’s a good idea but I don’t have any experience. So I could be wrong.

Book Review: Sweet Evil

Book Review: Sweet Evil

Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

The market is full of YA fantasy novels with the same kind of plot, characters and the angle of forbidden love. So, what makes this book special?
IMO this is a better version of those novels. The author has added the things we love subtracted all the annoying stuff and *tada*. 
I really like this book.The plot, the characters, Kaidan, everything is great. The book starts slow but picks up and then there is no looking back. There is so much happening in the book all the time. Absolutely no dull moments. 

I don’t think I will ever get a boyfriend. Kaidan you ruined me for all the other guys. *sigh*
Kai, like Thai, only yummier.
I loved Kaidan. There is nothing about him that I would like to change. He is hot, sexy and mysterious. He made me shiver, gave me goosebumps, swept me off my feet. 


“He was smoking hot. As in H-O-T-T, hott. I’d never understood until that moment why girls insisted on adding an extra t. This guy was extra-t-worthy.”

He is the son of the Duke(Devil) of Lust and he is supposed to do his dirty “work” without any questions. I hated his father. *evilness personified*
Kaidan is really swoon-worthy, his chemistry with Anna is amazing. 

It’s been a long time since I liked the female protag in a novel of this genre. Mainly, because most of them are dumb, one-dimensional and dull.
I like this one. Anna is innocent and sweet. She is brave and selfless. But not boring, though she is quite predictable. 

I really like the plot. The angels/demons stuff made sense to me. I could understand where the story was going. Even when I read fantasy I want it to be something that I could believe in. I like to see logic in all the chaos. That is why, I love HP. 
The writing is good and the character development is excellent. The secondary characters are interesting. 
The ending disappointed me a little bit. Waiting for the sequel!

Book Review: Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

Book Review: Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

What happens when two people decide to give themselves the year off…from each other?
Annie and Dan were the perfect couple. But now the not-so-newly weds feel more like flatmates than soul mates and wonder where all the fun and fireworks went …
When Annie lands her big break in a smash-hit show that’s heading for the bright lights of Broadway, she’s over the moon. Goodbye remote Irish village of Stickens, hello fabulous Big Apple! But with their relationship already on the rocks, how will Annie and Dan survive the distance?
They’re hitting the pause button on their marriage. One year off from each other – no strings attached, except a date to meet in twelve months at the Rockefeller Centre to decide their fate.
Will they both turn up? Or is it too late for love?

This is my very first book by the author. I was looking for a light, fluffy novel and I loved the cover (yes, I am shallow like that)
Also I read a review somewhere that said that the author is like Sophie Kinsella, whom I love. So I decided to give this book a try.

To be honest, I am not sure how I feel about this book. It was fun in parts and I liked the plot. 

The MC, Annie is a good person and I liked her (at least in the beginning) and I felt really angry on her behalf.
Dan treated her badly and I could not understand him. Everybody in the story kept saying that he is perfect but I didn’t see anything perfect. He cares about everyone’s problems except Annie’s. Sorry, but that doesn’t seem perfect to me! In trying to save the world he completely ignores his wife.

Annie is like-able and sweet and I hated how she was treated in the book. Everyone seemed to walk over her and she let’s them. 
She is constantly whining and is too hard on herself. It’s almost like she enjoys taking the blame.

JACK, hmmm…..I think he had potential to be swoon worthy but his role is very restricted. 

The secondary characters, honestly, I didn’t like any one of them. All the characters are selfish and take Annie for granted. I actually wanted to slap some of them. 

In terms of character development, the author excels. I liked how the characters were described. The writing is good. I really have no complaints regarding that. 
I also like the constant references to real life things and people.
The beginning is good, the middle is dragged and the ending is rushed.

What do you think? Have you read any book by the author?

Book Review: Being Jamie Baker

Book Review: Being Jamie Baker

Author: Kelly Oram 
An accident that should end in tragedy instead gives seventeen-year-old Jamie Baker a slew of uncontrollable superhuman abilities. To keep her secret safe Jamie socially exiles herself, earning the title of Rocklin High’s resident ice queen. But during a supercharged encounter with star quarterback Ryan Miller she literally kisses anonymity goodbye. Now the annoyingly irresistible Ryan will stop at nothing to melt the heart of the ice queen and find out what makes her so special. Unfortunately, Ryan is not the only person on to her secret. Will Jamie learn to contain her unstable powers before being discovered by the media or turned into a government lab rat? More importantly, can she throw Ryan Miller off her trail before falling in love with him

I love Ryan. He is the best thing about this book.
He is a great character. I wasn’t swooning over him but there is a definite spark. He makes me smile. 

Seohyun - 03 Pictures, Images and Photos
Jamie isn’t bad either. I kind of understand why, she has to be icy and cold and why she hates her power. But, having super speed and Super hearing is kind of cool. She is just too whiny! 

Though, Ryan makes it all okay. He’s just so positive and amazing. Yes, he is a little full of himself but that just makes him realistic. But, he does pout a lot…I guess on him it works.

Jamie and Ryan are adorable together. I love their conversations. And, the twist in the end, well… that was surprising. 

The book needs editing. Jamie took a lot of time to say yes to Ryan and the book got a little repetitive in the process.  Also, the whole thing about how Jamie got her superpowers was kind of silly.  The book doesn’t have a great story but it is fun and entertaining. 

The official trailer of the book:
The trailer is adorable! ❤

Book Review: Beautiful Disaster

Book Review: Beautiful Disaster

      Author: Jamie McGuire
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend America, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the charming college co-ed. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his charms, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’ apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

Once I started reading the book I just couldn’t put it down. 
The book is not perfect, not even close but still the book has been written pretty well. The story made me feel all warm and giddy, made me smile and that’s all you need sometimes.
When you  read it,  don’t over-think, it won’t get you anywhere. The book is not meant to be taken seriously(I’m hoping). It’s just a light and easy read.  
After all romance novels are supposed to be an escape from reality. Right?
Travis is hot, there are problems with his character(Discussed below)that I cannot ignore but there is no denying the fact that he is sexy and I was swooning over him. I can read the book again. 

Things I disliked…. 
Travis Maddox is not the ideal hero not even close. 
He has flaws…when he gets angry he drinks, breaks stuff and sleeps with random girls.
In the real world he would probably have a lot of restraining orders issued against him but bad boys seem to make a book more interesting and certainly more hot 😛

Everything aside, I loved the book. It was quite entertaining and romantic.
