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

Growl
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.

Cara
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.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama, inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from cystic fibrosis.

As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure.

This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start!
1.Live Big because life don't give us enough chances.


2. Take risks, you never know which moment is your last. 


3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you.


4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living.


5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.


Until next time...Bye!

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
