Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Don't Look Back

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Hyperion
Publication date: 4/15/14
Stars: 5 stars

Summary: Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend. 

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash. 

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Review: I defiantly like this book a lot. It's impossible to put down and it keeps you guessing until the very very end. Amazing book and I can absolutely not wait until I have the opportunity to read another book by Jennifer. You have GOT to pick this book up and read it. You will not regret it!

Review: Just Breathe by Jeanette Paul

Title: Just Breathe
Author: Jeanette Paul
Publisher: Random Romance
Stars: 5

Summary: Opposites attract in this funny, touching and deliciously romantic novel as hippie Dee meets millionaire businessman Ethan - and her calm world is turned upside down...

Dee Nichols is a free-spirited yoga teacher, albeit a broke one. But she's not interested in money or possessions or thinking too far into the future. After surviving a terrible car accident, she's just happy to be breathing.

Then Dee meets Ethan Roxburgh at a Christmas party. As the head of Roxburgh Holdings, and a regular in the social pages, he's the opposite of what Dee wants in her life. Until a job modelling yoga in a TV commercial turns Dee into an overnight celebrity…

Thrust into a whole new world of business and PR (as well as high-heels and plunging necklines) Dee is out of her comfort zone and suddenly Ethan is perfect – as a mentor. Or would be, if she wasn't so damn attracted to him. After all, he'd never look twice at a short, accident-prone yoga instructor with market-stall couture …

Then Ethan does look twice - and life gets sweet and sexy as hell.

Written by
Jaye Ford under her alter ego Janette Paul.

Review: This books pretty good. But I'm not a fan of Lucy she's kind of annoying, controlling and manipulative. Normally when a characters names Lucy I have no problem but I just don't like this one. And Val, Dee's mother reminds me of mine in so many ways. However Ethan and Dee are amazing! But I really love this book all together! It had hardship and love. It shows you that you can over come your hardships. I think it's kind of a hopeful book. I really do like it! :) Must read!

Review: How to Enhance your life with astrology by Arthyr w. Chadbourne

Title: How to enhance your life with astrology
Author: Arthyr W. Chadbourne

Summary: To the untrained eye, it seems patently absurd that an astrology chart may be something more than a wheel with randomly placed symbols. But to the trained eye celestial configurations present obvious messages that are easily recognized. How to Enhance Your Life with Astrology can guide you to learn how these messages are conveyed and how you can interpret them. It has been said that "Chance favors the prepared mind" and when the planetary angels speak, those who listen are well prepared. As astrologers, we have truly learned to read destiny.

Review: Sadly I couldn't stand to read this book. It's kind of... Boring! I couldn't help but skip ahead then again and again. But the good news is I'm not super into astrology. How is that good news you may ask? Well simple, that means those of you who are super into it may just absolutely love this book! I don't suggest it to someone who is just getting into astrology. Because it may have the same effect on you as it did me.

Review: Playing the Part by Darcy Daniel

Title: Playing the Part
Author: Darcy Daniel
Publication date: 2013
Stars: 5
Caution: Adult Novels

Summary: Anthea Cane is a successful actress—well, action star. Her films are mostly about how hot she looks silhouetted by fiery explosions. But Anthea is determined to prove she's more than just a body. With the role of a lifetime up for grabs—a serious adaptation of her favorite novel—Anthea sets off to her small hometown in the name of research.

Cole Daniel is a blind farmer with no patience for divas, especially one who mercilessly teased him as a young boy. When Anthea shows up using a fake name and pestering him into letting her stay, he can't pass up the opportunity to torment her just a little.

But Anthea won't let the stubborn farmer deter her from her goal, even if he is hotter than any man she's ever met. Cole finds his form of payback less than satisfying when Anthea keeps turning the tables on him, proving her mettle and gaining his respect. Will Anthea's research land her a man, as well as the part?

Reviews: I absolutely loved this book! It's amazing I wish I could read it over & over again. I also hope that there is to be a second book following this one because it's just absolutely amazing! Must read! 5 stars!

Review: Getting Married & Other Mistakes by Barbra Slate

Publication date: June 12, 2012
Stars: 5

Summary: Accomplished comic artist Barbara Slate--who has been called "titanically talented" by Stan Lee and her work "emphatically of our time" by the New York Times--lets it all out in a savagely funny and emotionally honest fictional narrative, told in a series of hilarious panels.

  After having been a good girl and following her mother’s advice to snag a husband before she became a twenty-something spinster, Barbara Slate realized that her Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong and that she was living her life according to everyone’s rules but her own. After twelve years of an unblissful marriage, she made her escape.
   Now this accomplished comic artist lets it all out in a savagely funny and emotionally honest fictional narrative. Jo, her stand-in protagonist, is a successful wedding photographer (of all things) who has been dumped by her husband and desperately needs to get on with her life. She follows her friends’ advice to get laid, see a shrink, go out more, and live a little. Nothing works. Eventually she realizes that she must stop listening to what everybody else tells her and follow her own voice instead.
   Jo’s struggle with female guilt and her quest for self-awareness, told in a series of hilarious panels, is the perfect book for any woman needing to take back control of her life, or remembering when she did.

"A must-read for any woman who has ever been cheated on, owned a Barbie, or once believed their mother's version of ‘happily ever after’. Skip the pity party and buy this book!” —Josie Brown, author, Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives and The Housewife Assassin's Handbook

Review: This book is kind of part comic, part book! It's really quiet adorable & funny! I shockingly couldn't stop reading it. I'm interested to see what the author comes up with next! It's a rather short story but very well written. Must read. Loved! 5 stars.

Review: Addicted to you by K.B. Ritchie

Title: Addicted to you

Author: K. B. Richie

Publication date: 2013            

Stars: 5

Summary: She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.

No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.

Their real vice may be each other. 

New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content     

Review: In the beginning of the book it a good book but it wasn't a great book. It's not one of those books that I just couldn't put down but I liked it. But then the book started to get better and I fell in love. I understood their addiction and where they were coming from. I understood them. The books amazing. The twists are super unexpected. 5 stars
