Her Soundtrack by R. Matthews 4.5 stars out of 5

 MY REVIEW

Oh my gosh I loved this book. This story of Ella and Jonathan is so good. I fell in love with Jonathan. The way he treated Ella and showed her how much he loved her was so romantic. He gave his heart and soul to her. They had quite a bit against them and it was hard to watch them go through these obstacles not knowing if they would make it or not. Once I started this book I could not put it down. I was captured the moment Jonathan was introduced. Ella was very innocent and the guy she was with was a jerk. He had everybody fooled but I could tell that he was a fake and unfortunately very dangerous. I’m so excited there will be a second book!!!! I can’t wait and look forward to more of Jonathan and Ella.

MY REVIEW 3.5 STARS OUT OF 5
I thought this book was okay. The main character Paige is different from many girls. She enters into college with her cat Pickles to try and reinvent herself. Her experience with sex or even talking to a guy is very limited. Her upbringing was in an all-girls Catholic school. Paige’s grandmother is the one that raised her because her mom had her when she was very young. I believe she was 15 and Paige really considered her as a wild older sister. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel like I connected with Paige. Her past was barely touched on and later in the book you find out she has some real emotional and mental issues. However, there is not much detail as to explain why. There are some things mentioned but it still didn’t explain why she is the way she is. Her fear of sex and closeness with a male is very severe. I’m not saying I couldn’t connect with her because she wasn’t having sex all the time. It’s nothing like that. It is her fear of the mention of sex and if she has any sexual thoughts she believes she is dirty. There is a scene where it is very serious and I’m talking about a mental breakdown because of the mere sight of a male’s body part. I wanted to understand her and I feel like I didn’t get the chance to do this.

The first day she arrives to her dorm she meets Andrew. Andrew is a very sweet guy and very respectful. I really did like Andrew when they first met and especially when he took her out on her first date. Then the next day she meets Spencer. Spencer is the typical bad boy who sleeps with any girl that offers herself to him without a second thought of having anything further than a quick f**k. He has a reputation around the school of being the top guy to sleep with. In other words he is considered a man whore. She walks in on her new room-mate and soon to be best friend Katy and Spencer having sex. Paige is completely repulsed by Spencer because not five minutes after he slept with Katy he was coming on to her. Katy didn’t really care because she knew he wasn’t the commitment type and all she cared about was getting some from Spencer. He plays the role of cocky and self-assured really well. Paige does everything in her power to push him away. The chase is the hook for Spencer at first but when he gets to know Paige he experiences feelings he has not had in a long time. There is a story in there but I couldn’t figure it out. It sounds like Spencer was in love once when he was 18 but something happened to make him change into a jerk. I hope this is elaborated on in the second book as well as Paige’s history.

Paige and Andrew don’t work out because he ends up being her RA for her dorm and it is policy for the RAs to not have relations with any member of his group he is in charge of. Of course this group includes Paige. She takes it really hard and so does Andrew but he needs the job and doesn’t want to risk losing it. Paige takes it in stride and decides she will wait for him until the following semester. By then she is hoping he can switch groups and move to another dorm and then they can have an open relationship. During this time is where Spencer makes his move on Paige. He is relentless and just down right adorable and funny. However, Andrew still wants Paige and so does Spencer. Both of these guys are completely opposite from each other, and the fact they hate each other doesn’t make her decision any easier. You will have to read the book to find out the background between Andrew and Spencer. When you find out how they know each other you think “wow what a small world”. The story ends with a small cliff hanger and I hope we are given some answers in the second book as well as closure to this story.

Never Let Go by Scarlett Edwards

Title:   Never Let Go
Author:  Scarlett Edwards
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publication Date:  October 17, 2013
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


Synopsis

The first day of college gives every girl a chance to reinvent herself.

I go and screw mine up by meeting the most gorgeous guy I've seen in five years while talking to my cat.

But Andrew Crowner is far from judgmental. By the end of our interaction, he has me smitten by his easy manner and kind smile. And from the way his eyes linger on me before he leaves, I start to think that maybe I’ve caught his attention, too.

I let myself believe that luck may finally be on my side. That is, until I stumble on my roommate, and her overnight guest: Spencer Ashford.

Lean, tattooed, and sexy as sin, Spencer is exactly the type I need to avoid. I would have no trouble with that... were it not for his swift and inexplicable interest in me.

Suddenly, I go from a girl with next-to-no experience with boys to one caught in the crosshairs of two completely different men.

Andrew's interest is wholesome and sweet. Spencer's is edgy and raw. My choice should be easy. But there are always complications, and sometimes, matters of the heart take the least expected turns.

About the Author



I’m Scarlett Edwards.  I wrote my first book as a college sophomore.  After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.
That was at the start of 2013.  I’ve written more books since then.  You can find them all here.
It’s funny how quickly life changes.  I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.”  Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.
Thanks to all my readers for making my dream come true.

My Review of Trials (Rock Bottom #2) by Sarah Biermann----5 stars out of 5 (Surprise Excerpt)

MY REVIEW 5 STARS OUT OF 5

Trials is one of the best books I read this year. The story of Jeremy and Dylan continues from Tracks. When Tracks ended it was not a very good ending. Dylan broke Jeremy’s heart and went on with her life without him by pushing him away. At first he would have fought for her but then he realized that he loved her too much to bring her down and he never thought he was worthy of her. In this book you find out why Jeremy severed all contact with Dylan. He couldn’t just remain friends like Dylan wanted and watch her with another man because it was hard enough to let her go. Jeremy was determined to fight his demons so he could beat his addiction to drugs. Unfortunately, he reveals to Dylan in this book that she was a trigger for him. He had to sever everything with her in order to beat his addiction for himself and not because Dylan wanted him to do it. This revelation is where Dylan was confused because in the beginning of this book she is still recovering from a broken heart. She never got the closure she needed from Jeremy. One day they were still talking as friends and then suddenly there was no communication with him for 10 months. Her boyfriend Scott stayed with her and Dylan tried to replace Jeremy with Scott. The only problem with this was she could never love Scott the way she loved Jeremy. Her heart was given to Jeremy and that part of her was not something she had to give to Scott. The sad thing is that Scott still stayed with her knowing this. I really did like Scott. He truly was a good man and was very loving towards her but the chemistry was not there. She was comfortable with Scott. Their relationship was truly kind of boring compared to the passion and chemistry between her and Jeremy.

Dylan finally gets her dream internship with the District Attorney’s office. However, she is put on the case against Jeremy. They believe Jeremy murdered this girl that was at one of his parties, and sadly the evidence against him was not good at all. She really didn’t want to be on this case because this meant she would have to face Jeremy for the first time in 10 months. All the unanswered questions as to why he left still plagued her, and Dylan wanted to believe that Jeremy was in some way involved with the murder charge against him. Inside her heart she knew he didn’t but she was mad at him for leaving her the way he did. Also, it didn’t help the fact that she would be on the team that was trying to bring him down. The two of them act like they don’t know each other when they first meet because she is afraid what her boss might do. This was her dream job and she didn’t want to lose it. As you read further in the book there are things you find out about Jeremy and his childhood that break your heart and that he truly has nobody in his life that loves him for just him. All that fame and money is not worth being alone, especially when he has to watch the love of his life happy with another man. He made the choice of letting her go but it still doesn’t make it any easier to know that he can’t be with her. This is a series that was worth reading in two days. I read the first one in one night and then moved on to the second one immediately. You will be hooked once you start and you will be happy to know that Jeremy Mason is now one my BBFs. The author was amazing and I can’t wait to read more from her. Although I wish this series didn’t end but it’s only because I need more of Jeremy. The way the series ends is a perfect way to end Dylan and Jeremy’s story and it brings closure to the readers.

This is who I picture as Jeremy.  (My opinion and not intended to replace other photos of Jeremy) Plus in the book Jeremy has blonde hair but hey a girl can dream......
 EXCERPT

Overcome with emotion, I walk around him, keeping my arms around his waist. I stop when I’m standing in front of him. I look up at him, his hands covering his face, until he drops them to his side. He looks down at me, his eyes deliciously exposed. I understand that this moment is another trial for me- one I’m about to fail.


I stand on my toes and kiss him passionately. I release his waist and place my hands in his hair. He tastes better than I could ever have remembered and when we connect, my entire body tingles. It’s like he is breathing life back into me.


He’s still for a moment, shocked into rigidness. As my mouth begins to move against his, he starts to move his lips in synchronization. He wraps his arms delicately around me, but we’ve been apart too long for gentle. I push my mouth harder into his and wrap my fingers tighter in his hair.

His breathing increases and his mouth moves faster with mine. He grabs the back of my shirt roughly, flipping me around and slamming me back against the wall. I moan and wrap my legs around him. He drops his hands to hold me under my ass.


“Damn you, Dylan,” he says, growling the words in between kisses. “Damn you for making me love you so much. I need you. I need you now. I’ve never needed anything more in my life than I need you right now.” His voice breaks. I understand now, in a way, his addiction. I understand having the pull to something you know is probably bad for you. You know it will probably end horribly. But it makes you feel so good that how can you deny it? I guess that makes me an addict, too. Maybe not of drugs, but to something that has the potential to be just as damaging to me and those around me.

The difference between Jeremy and I is that while he’s beating his addiction, I’m succumbing to mine.
