REVIEW~ Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Bitch, Beautiful Stranger, Beautiful Bombshell, Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren

An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He's exacting, blunt, inconsiderate--and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family's massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who'd been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative--completely infuriating--creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he's never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe's so tempting he's willing to bend the rules--or outright smash them--if it means he can have her. All over the office.

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they're willing to lose in order to win each other.

Originally only available online as The Office by tby789--and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites--Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.
Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon’s moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night’s fun. But the manner—and speed—with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.

The whole city knows that Max Stella loves women, not that he’s ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it’s not until Sara—and the wild photos she lets him take of her—that he starts wondering if there’s someone for him outside of the bedroom.

Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.
When Max, Henry, and Will steal Bennett away for a weekend of shenanigans and strippers in Vegas, the first stop of the night doesn’t go at all as planned. With their scheme for a Guys Weekend completely derailed anyway, Max and Bennett begin to play a wild game of stealth and secrecy in order to have their bombshells all over Sin City.
A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.
Wanna read and embrace your wild side at the same time? Then you need to pick up The Beautiful Series by Christina Lauren. When I began reading, I had no clue these books were fan fiction based on the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. Completely different-- everything, lol!! The top being, a sultry adult read that'll have you dropping your underwear! These books were intense and smoldering.

I read this series back to back, leaving one short story left for me to eventually pick up (Beautiful Beginning #3.5). I was utterly obsessed with the beautifulness behind the pages. When I say that these books gave me the pants-- not as in slacks--as in breaths, I am not lying! My husband was one happy fellow, lol!! But I mean, when you sit and think about it (not read about it), sadly they're not really realistic, lol. I'm sure a very small percentage of the events in this book actually physically take place. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be in that small percentage. Because it definitely reads so good! (Excuse me if I sound perv-- but that's why these books are written.)

The writing in this series has the right amount of charm with fascinating intimate scenes. While the banging came quick, the interaction, forthcoming connections and intimacy between the characters were quite desirable. Each character featured vulnerability and had the right amount of snark. Of course there was love and hate, and no intention on actual relationships. Another words, fear to love meets unexpected love. But good sex can lead to places that weren't intended.

The possessiveness in this series was raw and unfiltered- naughtily becoming and leaves you hungry to read the next book. Overall, the men were so sexy. And mostly, the women were independent. The passiveness and aggressiveness behind these characters and each of their stories collided into a blissful, erotic romance that will have your heart soaring and your thighs clenching!

I loved me some Will and Hanna from Beautiful Player (book 3). While I enjoyed all the characters, they were my favorite. Her innocence and inquisitiveness fascinated me. And how he handled it, was amazing.

The erotica in these novels were exhilarating and ferocious and desperate and naughty. Don't be surprised if you break out a sweat while you read. If you want erotica to jump out at you, this series puts the jump in jack. The Beautiful Series, books 1-3 were all intriguing and good for the naughty side of an adult woman's soul. Pick them up now!

REVIEW ~ ALLEGIANT by Veronica Roth

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Oh boy, oh boy!! POV in the house!! Smart move Veronica Roth to have had the last installment in the Divergent series, Allegiant, with Tris and Four's personas. I love you even more for this!

So at the end of Insurgent and throughout Allegient (until revealed) I itched to find out what was outside of that damn fence, y'all?? I'm not going to lie... it could, could it be... zombies? One of my first thoughts.

This book had deliciously exasperated me. It was like drinking a red bull. It gave me wings each time I read it, only when I had read all I could for the moment and I finally dwindled down from the events in it, it had left me exhausted. I may had lost a few pounds reading Allegiant, lol. There were a lot of kicking and screaming moments because there were so many directions this story could've taken. At times, it was a little braniac to me, so I had to follow really well to keep from getting lost. My curiosity had been all over the place. With that said, those were good feelings in reading. It had meant Allegiant kept me interested. I was able to read all the hidden truths in this novel unfold. Some were too hard to bare. Surprises. Surprises everywhere!!!! Stay with us Four!! I had to fight myself many times not to give in and just read the ending. Talk about one intense final installment. This book nearly gave me a stroke. Answers were revealed only to conjure up more questions.
Tris and characters were able to truly understand the purpose behind their identity. And questions were left among the characters and readers. Are the factionless going to retaliate against the factions or can they amend? It all bowed down to control and corruption. It always does. Those who knew best, would pledge Allegiant.

So, let me back track to the beginning of Allegiant. I couldn't wait to see Tobias' reaction towards Tris in the beginning of this book from the ending of the last book. Tris disabided Fours requests and constantly had went behind his back- but hey, it wasn't because she'd been malicious. It was for the greater good. But sometimes I realized how much dishonesty was between Tris and Four and it saddened me. But could the revealations of their dishonesty make their love stronger or could it destroy them? While I dearly loved Tris, I wasn't a fan of her condescending side or her 'don't treat me like I'm a 16 y/o.' But, we all have our quirks. Her chivalry was one of her most desirable characteristics. She was so compassionate and determined. Throughout reading this series, I had thought Tobias was my hero. Towards the ending of Allegiant, I quickly realized it was Tris who was my hero. To have seen her discover and appreciate her born clique and herself was humble. It had meant so much that Tris was able to get a little piece of her mother in this book. I see where Tris gets her characteristics from. It proved the old saying, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

I was quite curious to discover the judgement between Tris and her brother Caleb. I was pleased with the outcome even though I'd question myself if I were in her shoes, could I forgive?

I hadn't thought I could love Four anymore than I did. To have read his POV and be in his head was wonder. To have felt his fears was painful. To see how much he cared for Tris was warming. To feel him broken was tragedy. To see him succeed was triumph. To watch him battle his confusion was irritating.

Dauntless, Candor, Erudite, Abnegation, Factionless. They are just labels, just like labeling matter pure or damaged. Some discovered justification . Others, disappointed.

I had mentioned something similar to this in my Insurgent review. It is scary that the government could actually be doing these experiments. So many conspiracies! So much altercation! And, of course, control. Innocent lives lost or memories erased, in the name to create peace?

When I read post apocalyptic or dystopian/utopian, I often wonder how in the world do the authors imagine these stories? They are so dynamic, the Divergent series by Veronica Roth was the most dynamic I've read. Amazement was wrapped in the binds of these pages-- that as scary and foreign as it is, that I'd actually want to experience for myself. Let me bitch slap myself now back to sanity because it is totally insane for me to even be curious about it.

Although this book struck my emotional core and had left me fulfilled, it had also left me empty and full of tears. Not to sound bitter, well, maybe a little bit, I was, and still am an emotional mess and shocked at the decision the author had made in concluding the series. For days it effected me and still does when I think about it, like right now. Ms. Roth was very "dauntless" for ending the Divergent series the way she had. But on the flip side, it had to be done this way. What an unpredictable and sad, yet beautiful closure for Tris and her people. I shouldn't expect anything less of her. To heal and move forward-- and to leave my heart heavy in the process.

Take the quiz and find out what factor you belong in.

REVIEW ~ Insurgent by Veronica Roth

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Choice. You can decide when to make it. You can decide to change it.

In the second installment of Divergent series, Insurgent by Veronica Roth, it had been painful to read the hurt Tris suffered from her grief and guilt. Every faction of Tris was present in this novel, and I was able to familiarize myself with the depth behind them. It was all so natural for her. She was so reckless, a total survivor.  At times I had felt her slipping away, but she'd come back stronger. Her genuineness stood out at the sacrifices she had made. I love her with all the respect I could have for a heroine.

From chapter 2, this book had me on edge. Trust betrayed. Trust no one. Loyalty is tested. Just survive. Traitors and allies are discovered. Information was hidden.

Tris was able to get a firsthand look as to why she was divergent, and I was able to understand it along with her. It was a shame of the confliction between the factions due to corruption. What was sad, is the setting behind this series was to separate people into factions because the higher powers thought that would bring a better peace. But I mean of course there’d still be conflict and discrimination. It was no surprise that those who strived to be alpha took wretched, evil direction. However, don’t underestimate the girl who wanted to change it all and the people who supported her.

We did see a personality change in Tobias (Four) that I hadn’t expected. He was a bit of a drama queen towards Tris. I tried to understood his purpose behind that for many reasons- and because I didn’t want my image of him to be ruined. In his defense, Beatrice wasn’t fully honest with him. But he had secrets too. And even though we saw a softer side of Four- the Tobias side, he still continued to be my hero even though I questioned his identity and goals. And at least Four didn't run away like other characters in other books to keep the girl they loved safe. With all that stated, in the end, Four was still direct and upfront. Brutally honest some would think. And he risked his life to save Tris.

The characters in Insurgent had so many damn good attributes, whether they were lead, supportive, and/or pure menacing. Ms. Veronica Roth was exceptional at leaving you frothing out of the mouth at the end of each paragraph, squirming to decipher what could happen next.

Throughout all the tribulations of Insurgent, the second installment in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth, I always knew that Tris would pull through and excel in her bravery. Don't look for this one to close as well as Divergent. Roth left me with a cliffy. This was the reason for waiting to read this series back to back.

REVIEW ~ Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Well, I finally read what the hype was about in reading Divergent by Veronica Roth. Plus, I wanted to read before I viewed the movie. This was a big book. I was almost intimidated to read it because I tend to lose interest with larger books. But not with this one. I read Divergent with Cullen speed.

In the divided society between the pages, there was choice. Divergent was an interesting, exciting and refreshing story on humanity, reasoning, classification, alternatives, acceptation, and survival. Families were classified, based on their attributes, and once a young adult reached a certain age, they were given a test and a choice. But best choose wisely and keep up or get out. And for the sake of your life, choose one. I understood the justification and reasoning behind the division of people. In order to eliminate the evil sides of personalities believed to have had caused war, these people collaborated into groups to form a greater good of human kind and peace. At least that was the origination behind it. Each group had a specific representation and purpose, but didn't socialize outside of it. And if you were ruled without purpose, well then - you were basically homeless. But, there is a dark menacing side to everything and there is betrayal. You as the reader will ask yourself within the first 5 chapters, which sector would you choose for yourself?

It all had come down to this one girl. As Beatrice came to age, her curiosity grew and so did her choice. And so, Beatrice's new personation had begun.

Beatrice was equivalent to the word, brave. "Tris" put the “h” in heroine. The “a” in admiration. The “e” in envy. The “d” in determination. Ok, I'll stop now. Point is, I dug this young girl. I loved how she was inquisitive and questioned her choice, questioned her courage and how she tested herself, defended herself, pushed her limits. What a fascinating and courageous character. On top of that, the girl literally fell into the arms of a courageous, dreamy dude.

Parts of this book were brutal with ruthless and intense characters. But to be Dauntless, risks had to be taken and bravery was priority. But to be Divergent... Ah. Divergent. What was it? I craved to know its true meaning and purpose and why it had to be kept confidential.

The supporting characters in Divergent were committed and the rivals were relentless and vindictive. I am in love with Four. He's smart, strategic, deep, swoony and ethical. He was calm yet fierce and patient yet bold; a true leader. His guidance was respected. He and Tris made a very daring team.

Divergent was a pure adrenaline of a read! When you're not sitting in front of this book, you think of it constantly. While you worked, while you cooked, while you yelled at your kids or took a test, while you slept -- what was happening, dwell on it, what could happen, dwell on it.

Veronica Roth is a genius for leading her readers to a different era in our world. The image and emotion was there in every sentence of this book. Made you think. The possibility that society could become this in the future is scary.

Because I was so focused on the Divergent series, I’m glad I decided to read all three books back to back. I believe it would’ve killed me to have had wait between installments until the next release.

PLAYING PRETEND by Juliana Haygert: Blog tour + giveaway

Playing Pretend
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Word Count: 65,000
Release date: March 2014
Cover: Berto Designs

Summary from Goodreads:

As the Governor’s daughter, Charlotte McClain is an expert in playing pretend. High society, the men her mother shoves in her direction and a Pre-Law major are all a part of her perfect pretense. But when she pretends to be a nobody during Spring Break, she meets someone who rocks her world.

Mason Rowell knows heartbreak and Spring Break don’t mesh well, so he allows the mysterious Charlotte to seduce him. What should have been a fling, results in something deeper. After Spring Break has long since passed, he moves to Washington to pursue his graduate degree, but what he never expected to find living among the rich and pompous, was the girl who gave him the strength to change and the desire to start anew.

When the guy Charlotte can’t forget goes from a sensual memory to temptation in the flesh, her facade is put to the test. If she surrenders to his charms, she risks ruining her mother’s perfect career and master plan. Playing pretend is what Charlotte does best, but how long can she pretend she doesn't love the man who made her proud of her true self?

**A light, sexy NA Contemporary Romance**


This is a fun, flirty read with a whole lot of self-discovery. I enjoyed the fact that the story wasn't really dark and didn't tackle a heavy, stifling topic. While the stakes weren't very high, the characters in this book struggle to find themselves and really become a whole person. 

The story is told from the alternating POVs of Charlotte and Mason which works really well and provides insight into what each character is thinking about a particular scene or event. How simple things can be misconstrued and how two people who are so perfect for each other can struggle with understanding their feelings.

While the idea behind the book is not really anything novel, the author brought a special angle that managed to keep my attention and had me flipping page after page to see what was going to happen next. It was a much needed break from all the heavy and dark reads I've been making my way through lately. Certainly not one to miss. So be sure to pick up your copy of this fun love story.

REVIEW ~ Just One Year by Gayle Forman

Just One Day. Just One Year. Just One Read.

Before you find out how their story ends, remember how it began....

When he opens his eyes, Willem doesn’t know where in the world he is—Prague or Dubrovnik or back in Amsterdam. All he knows is that he is once again alone, and that he needs to find a girl named Lulu. They shared one magical day in Paris, and something about that day—that girl—makes Willem wonder if they aren’t fated to be together. He travels all over the world, from Mexico to India, hoping to reconnect with her. But as months go by and Lulu remains elusive, Willem starts to question if the hand of fate is as strong as he’d thought. . . .

The romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents that happen—and the happiness we can find when the two intersect.

I highly anticipated Just One Year by Gayle Forman after reading its pre companion, Just One Day. It drove me insane to find out what happened to Willem and if he shared the craving that Allyson had for their happenstance to be something more permanent- like a "stain." Don't let me down Willem. Don't let me down.

J O Y was written in Willem’s POV. We were able to distinguish the mystery that made up his being and his perspective of that fateful one day and the events throughout the year until Allyson finally had found him.

'Accident - how I found her. Accident - how I lost her.’

Willem was a character I begged to be acquainted with. He made me ask so many personal questions about him while I’d read. What made up his thought process? What was he running away from? Did he even try to find Allyson? Was he confused or in denial, maybe both? Is he a player? Did he hide behind some facade? Is he scared to love someone? Thankfully, my questions were answered throughout the read. Plus answers to questions I’d never thought to have asked, that needed to be asked!

What I’ve mostly gathered about Will and his behavior was he had freedom, but elements of endearment and a nurturing that all children should have, was missing along with loss. Which, resulted to one single, challenging word. COMMITMENT

While I thoroughly enjoyed the read, I did find myself disappointed in some of Willem's actions. After all, Gayle Forman is going to give us a realistic character with suaveness and faults, right? I felt like Will continued to settle while his mind continued to race about "LuLu." It was kind of a turn off to see Willem turn to other girls when he was so hung up over another one. But I mean, in sucky reality, that's just what boys do. So many times fate seemed like it tried to steer him in the right path, only it would collide, ugh!! You’d know this and recognize these directions from the settings in book 1, how fate is certainty. He travelled to that fork in the road. He took the wrong turn, but with the help of friends, he detoured and he found the way- well actually the direction found him, 'because you find things when you aren't looking for them'. There had been so many bumps in the road along the way in this read. I almost even ripped a page!! But fate, freed Will.

I was glad that Willem had Broodje, Prateek, Kate (I liked her- girl kept it real with her reality checks—something Willem definitely needed) and friends. They were great confidants and helped him to try and locate the target - the ‘Principle of Connectivity’ can have some profound leads.

There was a flaw in my eyes in Just One Year. The end. I mean, it definitely had the closure I was hoping for, just not enough. I wish it had been elaborated more. More interaction between Willem and Allyson. I waited the whole book, actually two books, to have this dynamic rekindling moment. However, it did not by any means ruin this book for me.

It wasn’t surprising and is EXPECTED that Gayle Forman's writing bears so much sentiment and so many inspirational words. ‘

There’s a difference between losing something you knew you had and losing something you discovered you had. One is disappointment. The other is truly a loss.'
