ARC REVIEW: A Special Obsession by A.M. Hargrove

From the author of For The Love of English, comes a new a stand-alone contemporary romance.

Rule Number One: Never let anyone get too close…

Weston Wyndham has more money on his tattooed wrist than I’ll ever have in my bank account.

Drunk, he was gorgeous, wicked, sexy… an inked god.
Sober, he is the most arrogant man ever.

If he thinks I’m going to let him order me around like one of his servants, he’s wrong. If he wants me to date him after all this, he’s out of his mind. I don’t care how rich he is, or that he drives a Ferrari and a fancy truck. Those walls I put up are there for a reason … and they were built to last.

But he’s relentless, and hot, and it turns out he likes his girls a little fiery. Giving in doesn’t have to mean disaster—unless I break my number one rule.

Special O’Malley is a handful. With a name like that, she ought to be. Sassy as hell, bossing me around, but damn if I don’t deserve it. 

I’m used to getting my way, dealing with difficult people, only she’s not buying any of it. Usually my money attracts women. Not Special. She doesn’t give a damn about it … or me. 

There’s more than one stubborn player in this game. I have a few tricks up my sleeve and I’m not planning on giving up any time soon … at least not until I’m between her thighs, making her moan. And those concrete walls she has … I have news for her. Concrete crumbles if you strike at the right place.

Sweet, hot and full of  mushiness. Special obsession is the type of book that leaves the readers with all the lovey dovey feelings and makes  them believe that love can be found in the most unpredictable situations.

This book made me laugh so hard that I even fell from my couch while reading it *I am not joking*. The beginning​ was damn hilarious and I was laughing my ass out. Throughout the read I had a big smile plastered on my face. The story got a bit intense in the middle but overall it was a amazing.

A Special Obsession introduces the readers to weston and special. Weston belongs to an upper class family and is stinking rich but he feels out of his element with his family. He feels like an outcaste with his sophisticated family. His parents are full of shit. They are too judgmental for their own good. Special on the other hand had a loving grandma and an adopted son named Cody and he so so adorable. Spoiler ahead click on the button to see!!

So the story starts with an extremely drunk passed out Weston,in special's bar. To avoid any further problems special takes him to her house and let him spend the night on her couch. Their first descent meeting the next morning didn't go well and resulted in a fight ultimately leading Weston to kiss the fight out of special.*the kiss was scorching hot*.  As the story picks up pace, they both develop a deep friendship but oh boy! The sexual tension was so strong to be ignored. Special had a messed up past with boys so she didn't trust easily amd turned down Weston's advances at every point.

There came a point when special irritated the hell out of me with her 'we are different' speech and I really wanted to shake some sense into her. So will Weston be able to break down the Walls around her heart and will special be able to give Weston the love, he so strongly years for? Want these answers, go and read the book, I am not here to tell you the entire story, that's what the book is meant for just read it and find your answers.

I loved  nature of their relationship,it bloomed Beautifully from friendship to love. I am glad there was no love at first sight. Lust at first sight? Yes but love at first sight? Definitely no.

All in all this was an awesome read. The characters were relatable with well constructed plot. The beginning and ending was great but somewhere in the middle the story lost its touch. It seemed liked the author was trying to drag and stretch the story as much as she can. But nevertheless I enjoyed this book and it was a fair read and that's all that matters right? So yeah I recommend this book. If you want to read a sweet and cute romance with a bunch of hilarious scenes and a pinch of dark past, then this book is definitely for you, go ahead and read it!!

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

REVIEW-- A Dress the Color of the Sky by Jennifer Irwin

For too many years, Prudence Aldrich has been numbing the pain in her life with random sexual encounters. Her marriage to cold, self-centered Nick is, not surprisingly, on the rocks. But after several dangerous experiences with strangers, Prudence finally realizes that she needs therapy to stop her self-destructive behavior, and so she checks into the Serenity Hills rehab center.

Prudence blames herself for her irresponsible behavior and is filled with self-loathing. She’s convinced she’s totally at fault for Nick’s manipulative attitude and that, with therapy, she can return their relationship to its idyllic beginning. However, her therapist and the other members of her rehab group see the person behind the pain. As Prudence learns more about herself and the reasons for her behavior—including startling revelations about her childhood—she begins to understand the basis for her lack of sexual self-respect. She also learns that she’s not entirely to blame for the failure of her marriage.…

Review: Detached by Tanner Lutheran

In this vivid, ever-changing literary fiction, characters come to life as Zachary Byrd runs from a tragic accident and aimlessly sets off across the country. Not long after hitting the road, he gets lost but quickly finds himself in the middle of someone else's tribulations. To Zachary, his journey is an eye for an eye-to save one life and make up for one life and make up for another he may have stolen. He obsesses over tipping the scales until he risks his life to rescue Astrid Mavis from hers. From the trenches of train yards to bus stations, they never stay in one place too long, learning from the rich bonds with others along the way until they finally name a destination as far away from home as they can go. When the smoke clears, all that's left is a note- A note that will change everything.

Review: Every Time It Rains by Nikita Singh

Love is a dangerous thing. It brings with it great joy, and opens you up to pain. But does one really have the courage to say no and look the other way?

Laila is yet to recover from her painful past. Hurt, and untrusting of love, she is fully immersed in work, her only source of cheer. Her bakery franchise is very popular and she just might be able to go national, if she can pull off that big deal.

Just when things are looking up, along comes JD, an impetuous, free-spirited creature to stir up the calm. He's her exact opposite. Laila s self-destructive, he s life-affirming. She s cautious, he s buoyant. But here s the thing: he makes her feel the very things she wanted to forget. Stirring a familiar passion she longed for but had lost the courage to pursue. 
They are irrepressibly drawn to each other but will she ever be able to trust him? Every Time It Rains is the story of every girl who has ever had her heart broken. And fallen in love again.
