Yeah yeah!! call me hopeless romantic but I want you all to find that novel kind of love when you are head over heels in loves with that someone special, even if I myself am single with zero experience in love but still, a girl can wish right? right? Please answer my questions out loud because I want to hear them but I can't and I love my followers so yea nevertheless answers my questions out loud, It would give me some peace of mind and I'd not feel like a psycho asking silly questions to my fellow readers! *sorry for my rambling but I just want to make you smile if you are getting irritated please ignore it*

So let's discuss this new contemporary romance novel called "If You Were Mine" by "Melanie Harlow". Scroll down for the blurb and then scroll down more for my review. I hope you'll find it helpful😄😙😎



All, dark and handsome suits me just fine, but the cocky grin, know-it-all attitude, and mammoth ego? No thanks. I only hired him so I wouldn’t have to sit at the singles table again. It was just a pretend.

He wasn’t supposed to kiss me. 

My heart wasn’t supposed to pound. 

We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life. 

One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.

We’re nothing alike. He’s a daredevil, and I’m a nervous Nellie. He’s a drifter, and I want to put down roots. He’s an opportunist with a checkered past, and I’m a Girl Scout volunteer.

But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.

I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could. 

All he has to do is stay.






This is my first Melanie Harlow read and I really liked it. I can't say love but I enjoyed reading this one. First things first, I chose this book because I have a major crush on this cover. It was love at first sight, believe me, I really love this cover. It looks so intense and passionate and full of love *get a grip Ammie*. Ok so leaving the cover aside let's talk about the book *I love the cover, period😜 *

                             **Me: when I look at the cover**

This story is about Claire and Theo and of course their love for each other. Claire is a school teacher (art teacher). She loves her job but she wants more, she is a dreamer and wants to make her name in the art industry but she is too insecure to do that. She suffers from a fear of rejection. Because of all her insecurities, she has no boyfriend, no relationship but one lie changes everything and she hires a scout named Theo *ooh he is love!!* to accompany her to her colleague's wedding to escape the terror of sitting at the singles table.Theo has his demons, he is flawed. He is the type of guy, the mothers warn their daughters about. But opposites attract right? So Claire was instantly attracted to Theo on their first meeting in spite of his big mouth. They both were intensely attracted to each other and don't even talk about the sexual tension, I could definitely feel it, It was blowing up the charts.


But what happens when Theo reveals his secrets when he lets down his guard and lets Claire see the real Theo? Will Claire accept all of him? But the main question is will Theo stay for Claire or will he run away as usual? To find the answers get into the book.

The story was intense and heartwarming full of sweetness and raw emotions. It had forbidden love vibe. Both the characters are insecure and feel that they aren't worthy of each other. But ultimately love find its way pushing away all the insecurities. I loved how Theo helped Claire to build up confidence and chase her dreams. 

"Don't try to look behind the curtain Claire sometimes believing in the magic is better than the truth"~Theo

I respected how Claire supported Theo. Somewhere near the middle Theo's habit of adopting flight mode rather than fight mode really bugged me and I wanted to shake some sense into him. If I would have been on Claire's place I would have thrown him out of my life after he left Claire for the second time but I'm not Claire so it's okay, I guess😜. But I fell in love with Theo eventually and I adored Claire's character. 

"I've never felt the magic like I do when we are together. And I've to believe that doesn't happen very often"~Theo

I felt that the ending was a bit stretched with all the details that weren't really needed. But I adored this book with everything in me and definitely enjoyed reading it.

I loved the scene when Theo proposed Claire. All that fairytale setting and price, princess story was so adorable. It was so cute and I personally think it was one of the best book proposes. I fell in love with Theo all over again.

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…

Lucy is used to having a handle on things herself: her business, which she’s fighting to turn around after a rough patch, and her love life, which consists of carefully conducted casual encounters during which only she calls the shots. A one night stand with George - the tall, husky biker whose rough exterior hides a gentler side - changes everything. Lucy’s usual approach doesn’t work anymore: come morning, she doesn’t want to say goodbye. Perhaps it’s time to let someone into her life for more than just one night?
