REVIEW: SWITCH BY ADRIANA LOCKE

 Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.

After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.

Then she sees her new boss.

Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.

This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down





Aaah!! Graham Landry *fangirling*. I can't do anything other than fangirling because I just can't have Graham Landry. OH, why-why-why, fictional characters are so swoony *ooooh*.

"SWITCH" is my first "Adriana Locke" read and ooh boy!! did I love it? I absolutely adored this book. It is a romantic comedy but it's not that frustrating sweet mushy types and that's a relief !!

"Switch" is a perfect blend of romance, humor and emotions. It's not one of those cheesy romance novels, it has its moments. At one second you'd be laughing your as# off and then the other second you'd probably cry and then go all swoony. It's just this book have the tendency to satisfy all your cravings. You get the swoony mushy romance, you get to laugh, you get hot and out of breath and you definitely get emotional. I hope you're getting me!! Oh Gosh!! I'm rambling again *umph*. 

"When the opposites attract spark fly"

SWITCH introduces us to Graham Landry and Mallory Sims. Both of them have had miserable past relationship experiences. The story starts with Mallory taking up a job as Graham's personal assistant. They studied together in high school but were not that familiar with each other. On their very first meeting, they were pulled to each other like the two opposite poles of a magnet. The sexual tension frustrated the hell out of me. 


As the story paces, they are unable to ignore the attraction and finally give into the temptation. They develop a sex with no strings sort of relationship. But what happens when one of them develops feeling? What happens when the past meets the present? Can Graham trust Mallory with his heart? Can Mallory accept his past?

8 words to describe Graham:-
Hotshot Ceo, Organized, Workaholic, Egoistic, Temperamental, Caring, sweet, Supportive, Dirty Talker

8 words to describe Mallory:-
Sweet, Unorganized, Lively, Loving, Forgiving, Caring, Passionate, Confident.

This book is so much more than a simple romantic comedy. It teaches us to open our hearts and forget the past. Its Graham's journey to forget his past and give love another chance. It's Mallory's journey of self-discovery. 

There was no love at first sight, but there was some insane attraction at first sight!!
Their relationship nurtured with time. Their relationship went through several stages. It developed and became unbreakable *oh feels!!*. Yeah!! Graham tried to push Mallory away but Mallor pulled Graham to herself with the same intensity...

"I hope you find love someday. I hope you find a guy that thinks of you the way I do"

"I hope he can give you what you need back" 
~Graham

Adriana Locke has delivered us a story full of love and angst. The book was very finely written with good hold over conversations. I was very easily connected with the characters. This book was a roller coaster ride bundled up with hundreds of emotions. I laughed and cried, I wanted to smash my head into the walls and all curl up on my couch and hug my teddy. Adriana Locke made me fall in love with Graham! Well done, dearest author!!

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.

ARC Review: Intrepid by Keri Lake

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks. 

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness. 
But that's the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out. 
It's been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I've tasted retribution and crave more of it. 
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free. 

The plan …
