Review: Every Time It Rains by Nikita Singh

34235087
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. 


**Thanks to Harpercollins for considering me worthy enough to send a physical review copy**

Light, funny and emotional read which leaves you with positive thoughts.

One quote that comes to my mind after reading this book is :
"we all are a little broken, some more than the others". 
This quote defines this book so well.


This is the story of first love gone wrong and second chances. This is the story of hope and self healing. This is the story of friendship, love and trust.

The story revolves around Laila and JD. Laila had a tough past and is still living in it's aftermath. She is a no nonsense type of woman and does not take shit from others. She is independent and as happy as she can be. Time and experiences has made her hard, taking away all her faith in love. 

Enters JD, with all cool dude attitude, charming boyish grins and carefree nature and suddenly laila's world is turned upside down. He touches those parts of Laila which she has deeply hidden. They are as opposites as they come but opposites have a way of finding each other.  But the question is, will Laila move into the light or succumb into the darkness? Will she ever trust anyone? Will she ever find her happily ever after?

The book was quite good but the bond between the main characters .i.e. Laila and JD was missing. We weren't even introduced to JD till the half of the book. There was so much of detail about anything and everything but no detail about the character's relationship. I wanted to read more about the couple but what I got was more of Laila and her relationship with her friend Maahi and her employees which is quite ridiculous. We don't get enough scenes between Laila and JD. The author must focus on the main characters rather than the supporting characters. I wanted to know more about JD's past but the author didn't give away a single thing about him. Frankly speaking, the characters were very vague and not developed except Laila. 

Nevertheless the novel had a good plot and writing style which forced me to read ahead. So all in all I enjoyed reading this book it was a fair read!!

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.

Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of Anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit.

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.

Vivian
Terrified at what my family wanted to do to me, I ran away from them straight into the arms of a gray-eyed stranger.
The man taught me how to love, creating a cocoon around my heart that nothing could break.
I thought my old life was behind me, but my dreams didn't come true.
They had found me and manipulated the situation in their favor, destroying my life in the process.
To save the man I loved, I had no choice but to betray him.
He was out of prison now.
 He would come for revenge.
All I could do was pray for mercy.

That was how long I had spent in prison for the crime I didn’t commit.
