~Synopsis~

A sizzling new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans. 
A bad boy with something to prove…A woman with a mission. 
The race of their lives…The love of a lifetime. 
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted. 
He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around. 
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep… 
but his smile sends me to my knees. 
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss…. 
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse. 
He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

It has been a long time since I have read about Remy.

I am gonna be honest here and confess, that I have not read all the books in the “Real” series…yet. I’ve only read the ones about Remy and Brooke, but when I found out this was about “Racer”, Remy and Brooke’s son, I had to give it a go. 😉

Quinn grew up feeling out of place in the small town he calls home. Yearning for something he can’t name, he’s always felt different but never known why.
Kellan is part of a nomadic shifter pack. When they set up camp in the woods near Quinn’s town, the humans are unwelcoming and suspicious of the newcomers. The moment Kellan catches sight—and scent—of Quinn, he knows Quinn is special. But for the first time in his life, Kellan can’t trust his instincts. Quinn is human, and Kellan is a wolf shifter, so how can they ever be mates?
Their bond is instant and exhilarating. It breaks Quinn’s heart to know their relationship can only be temporary. Love isn’t enough when pack law forbids shifters to mate with humans. Tension explodes between pack and humans, and when Quinn discovers a shocking truth about himself that changes everything, he fears he’ll have to choose between the only life he’s ever known and the man he loves.

Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

He’s a womanizer. He’s cocky. He’s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.
Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.
Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.
But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . .

Now, this was a sweet, definitely hot fairy tale with a prince charming a.k.a “His Royal Hotness” and a common girl.

Garrett was born to be King, to rule. It was in his blood after all.

When the prince crown of Wildemar, Garett despaired tree mounts ago, his twin prince Kian took his place. Garrett was the first born and Kian the second. Since they were born, although they were twins, they were different.Garrett was born to be King, to rule. He was more malleable then Kian. He even wished to be the future king. And so it was very easy for him. He prepared since childhood for this. His country and other needs were first to him than his own. Wildemar comes first.

Kian, on the other hand, was the exact opposite.

Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

Rule #1: No hot guys. 
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of was, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone. 
No one would know me at college. 
Rule #2: No drama. 
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy-breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them. 
Rule #3: New year. New place. New me. 
Right? 
Wrong. 
And all because of Shay Coleman. 
Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. 
I hated him on sight . . . 
. . . and he was about to break all my rules. 
Hate To Love You is a full-length standalone. 
There are elements that deal with the dark side of college.

I have been binge reading the “Fallen Crest”  series and when I was done…I didn’t want it to be done ;). So I figured, why stop here, why not continue on my “Tijan” streak. 😛

Now I have to say…I really enjoyed reading “Hate to love you”…

But I am gonna be honest here and also say that, even though Kennedy and Shay were great, they were no Sam and Mason.This is probably because Sam and Mason have like 7 books centered around them, so I got to know them really well and I came to see them as a family of sorts.

Kennedy and Shay only have this one book, so things moved a bit faster between the two of them. Now, I am not a real big fan of insta-love but then again…this is college and I have a vague memory of things moving a lot faster when you are younger. 😛

~Synopsis~

Sam’s freaking out. He’s 30 in three weeks. And what has he done in his twenties? It’s pretty simple math: nothing exciting at all. But hey, he has three weeks right? Maybe that’s just enough time to tick his way through a 20s Must Do List . . . 

Luke’s freaking screwed. He’s come out to his family, and his friends. Except there’s a certain someone who doesn’t know yet: his neighbor of 7 years. Who also happens to be his best friend. Who Luke needs to tell the truth, but he just . . . can’t . . . seem to . . .

Jeremy’s freaking over-the-moon. It’s the countdown to his 15th birthday, and his goal is simple. No matter what, he’s going to spend heaps of time with saucy Suzy. But first he needs to get his over-protective, no-girlfriend-’cause-you’ll-get-her-pregnant parents off his back. And what better way than pretending he’s gay?
Sam, Luke, and Jeremy. Three guys who have a lot of history together, and a lot of future too—well, if they can sort out their issues, that is.

I have been going through my long, long TBR list looking for great books that have gotten lost on there.

tumblr_n7n1yqrikx1tf6922o1_400.gif (260×146)

I have been reading some great Anyta Sunday books lately so I figured I would finally give this one a go.

This is a very sweet “friends to lovers” story, with a gfy element.

Sam is 29, about to be 30 and father of Jeremy, who’s about to turn 15. Sam lost his virginity and got his girl pregnant at the age of 14, making him a dad at 15. He and his baby momma are not in a relationship, but hey are still great friends though. They are co parents and Jeremy spends equal time with them.

Turning 30 is hitting Sam pretty hard. He never got to be a teenager and so all the stupid stuff that teenagers do, because he became a father at such a young age. He is going through his own sort of “midlife crisis” and he has even made a list of all the things he wants to do before he turns 30.

Life is simple and hopeful in youth. Luke and Nelson are best friends exploring their budding sexuality. They have big plans for the future, and nothing can stand in their way or tear them apart—except a family move that puts a continent between them.

Impossibly fate sees fit to offer them a last opportunity to see what might have been. Will the third time be the charm, or is trust so badly broken it is impossible to repair? Can they recapture the innocent love they once knew and make up for all the wasted years? In a love story that spans half a lifetime, two friends destined for each other will have to fight hard for their happily ever after.

“It was going to be him and Luke against the world forever “

Guess what? It wasn’t like that.

This story starts with a prologue that takes place in 1988, where our MCs,  Nelson Maitland, and Lucas Rollins…Friends and neighbors since they were five years old… witness their plans and dreams shattered when Luke has to move with his parents to another state. Because we all know that for a 13 years old kid, that is a galaxy far far away, and kinda the end of the world.

“At thirteen he thought his life was over, couldn´t understand why the world was still spinning when his had stopped”

After that “break up” (and the quotation marks are necessary since they were not a couple, just best Friends “experimenting”) our heroes are going to cross paths in life again but let me tell you, it’s not gonna be an easy journey.

Page Count: 362 pages
Release Date: July 19, 2017
Genre(s): M/M Romance, Historical Fiction
Reviewer: ~Vir~
Rating: 3.5 up to 4 Stars

~Synopsis~

I am Axios of Sparta, and I was born to kill. At age seven, I left home to train with other boys where we were taught obedience, solidarity, military strategy, and how to withstand pain. My harsh upbringing stripped me of my weaknesses and forced me to become strong. Ruthless. 
But, I craved something greater—a life I could never have. 
Against all odds, and the toughest training a warrior could endure, I found an unexpected love in the arms of a fellow Spartan. He was the very air I breathed and the water that sustained me. Fighting side by side with him, we were invincible. Where he went, I followed. 
However, there was no place for love in Sparta. Feelings were for the weak. The only life for a Spartan was one of battle and brutality with no guarantee of tomorrow. In times of war, all men were put to the test, but the greatest challenge for us was not one of swords and spears, but of the heart.

Initially this was gonna be a 5 stars rating. I loved the beginning of this tale.

Then, at some point in the middle, I changed my mind and I was sure I was giving it 3 stars. But the last 20% of this tragic story made me change my mind again and rounded up to 4. Because the book is good, It’s just me who is weird and finds some things boring, or long, or whatever. I’m sure, any other reader is gonna savor every single page of this gorgeous friendship and love story.

~Synopsis~

A single stroke can change your world.

Xander Fairchild can’t stand people in general and frat boys in particular, so when he’s forced to spend his summer working on his senior project with Skylar Stone, a silver-tongued Delta Sig with a trust fund who wants to make Xander over into a shiny new image, Xander is determined to resist. He came to idyllic, Japanese culture-soaked Benten College to hide and make manga, not to be transformed into a corporate clone in the eleventh hour. 
Skylar’s life has been laid out for him since before he was born, but all it takes is one look at Xander’s artwork, and the veneer around him begins to crack. Xander himself does plenty of damage too. There’s something about the antisocial artist’s refusal to yield that forces Skylar to acknowledge how much his own orchestrated future is killing him slowly…as is the truth about his gray-spectrum sexuality, which he hasn’t dared to speak aloud, even to himself.
Through a summer of art and friendship, Xander and Skylar learn more about each other, themselves, and their feelings for one another. But as their senior year begins, they must decide if they will part ways and return to the dull futures they had planned, or if they will take a risk and leap into a brightly colored future—together.

I absolutely loved Heidi Cullinan’s  Carry the Ocean and Shelter the Sea . So when I saw that there was a new book coming out by this amazing author…I jumped on it. 😉

Now I am gonna confess and say that I knew absolutely nothing about this book before I started it.

So imagine my surprise and intrigue when I found out that one of the characters is asexual (or somewhere on the spectrum). I have to admit that I’m pretty clueless when it comes to asexuality or anything really, that falls into the gray area of sexuality. So color me intrigued.
