Lucca (Made Men #4)

Lucca by Sarah Brianne My rating: 5 of 5 stars As delicious as I’d hoped! Kidnapping? Yes, please. Mafia? Yes, please. Kidnapping AND mafia? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! 💵 I had been waiting for this book, reading Vincent and Chloe for the purpose of getting to this one.Don’t get me wrong- I enjoyed …

Vincent (Made Men #2)

Vincent by Sarah Brianne My rating: 4 of 5 stars Liked it more than expected Four “I really liked it” stars! I’m gonna hit you all with some truth real quick: I decided to read Vincent and Chloe exclusively to get through to Lucca’s book. In fact, I was tempted to skip both and go …

The Deal (Off-Campus Book 1)

The Deal by Elle Kennedy My rating: 4 of 5 stars Enjoyable NA (college) read This was my first read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. There was suspense coming from several angles- not just the main relationship. It kept the book moving- no lulls. I do wish there had been some resolution …

Punk 57

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Loved it! I had been putting this one off for some reason, but I’m glad I finally dove in! The setup for the secrets and backgrounds was done so very well. The author also really captured the angst and misery of being/feeling like an …

Carter Reed (Carter Reed, #1)

Carter Reed by Tijan My rating: 2 of 5 stars Not this author’s best I hate to give a low rating to an author I’ve otherwise liked, but I cannot rate Carter Reed higher than two stars. It most definitely didn’t do it for me.There were considerable technical issues with this book, to include a …

Next to Never (Fall Away, #4.5)

Next to Never by Penelope Douglas My rating: 4 of 5 stars Still good, but… Huh. This book turned out to be quite different than I had anticipated. The blurb read like it would be a story about Quinn and her infatuation with Lucas. In reality it is a story of Quinn learning a life …

Aflame (Fall Away #4)

Aflame by Penelope Douglas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Perfect Ending What a perfect wrap up to this series. This book had some parts that were heartbreaking as Jared and Tate found their way back to one another, but it all worked out. The author did an excellent job of managing that story line- …

Falling Away (Fall Away #3)

Falling Away by Penelope Douglas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another winner! Oh man- this series just keeps getting better. As with any really good series I am dreading its end… that lost feeling you get when you just know that your next read won’t be as fulfilling. This book was so frustrating, but …

Rival (Fall Away #2)

Rival by Penelope Douglas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Love it I am so thoroughly enjoying this series, and this book took the angst up a notch. What happened when Fallon left? Why does Madoc hate the theater room? Was Madoc going to find out what Fallon was hiding? And, WHERE THE HECK IS …

Until You (Fall Away #1.5)

Until You by Penelope Douglas My rating: 5 of 5 stars Swoon I, like some other readers, was on the fence about purchasing/reading Until You. I suspected it would be simply a retelling of the same scenes from Bully, but in Jared’s POV. Rest assured- it isn’t. In the prologue the author writes something to …
