The Books:
BROKEN AND SCREWED by Tijan - Alexandra is left broken after her brother dies. The only person who makes her forget is his best friend, Jesse Hunt, but he's the one person she shouldn't be with. He knows some secrets that could destroy what's left of her. 

SHATTERED TIES by K.A. Robinson 

A PEEK BEYOND THE CONSEQUENCES by Aleatha Romig - Anthony Rawlings is a man most women love to hate or hate to love. Domineering yet caring, demanding yet sensual, he’s truly an enigma, but can he be the one Claire needs and deserves? Will she ever truly find happiness with the man who stole her life but gave her the world? For a glimpse into the future, take a Peek Beyond the Consequences, a novella. 

BEFORE LUCKY by JS Cooper - Before Lucky is a novella prequel to New York Times Bestselling book The Last Boyfriend. 

THE O INTENTION By Skyla Madi - Take note, ladies. Not all men with full lips and a killer smile know how to bed a woman. When Jesse O’Ryan walked into the bar, my hunt for a crazy one night stand had come to an end. I wanted all of him, but when I got him… it wasn’t at all what I expected. 

THE CAGING: Week One by Sarah Dosher - You stole me away, caged me in darkness, and said I had one year to love you or I’d never be free. The first week was the hardest, I refused be locked in a Cage. 

DAMIAN by Jessica Wood -Meet Damian Castillo. The man, the legend, the heartbreaker. As a self-proclaimed man-whore, Damian doesn’t believe in love or commitment. In fact, he can’t remember the last time he’s had feeling for a woman that went beyond hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only things he cares about are his bar, his appearance, and his needs. 

An intro into BREAK ME NO MORE by Crystal Spears - My love is so deep that, at times, I overdose on him. My addiction is unshakable... unbreakable... unhealthy. 

FAMOUS by Kahlen Aymes - Ever wonder what The Remembrance Trilogy would be like on film? Superstar Caden Carlisle, and ingénue Brooklyn Halloway come from different worlds and are thrown together on set, only to discover an intense connection neither can battle, as they bring Ryan and Julia to life. 

LOST IN US a Lost in You Novella by Heidi McLaughlin - Life is supposed to be about following your dreams, taking risks and getting lost in love. I have my dream job. Hadley is definitely a risk. Getting lost in love with her is the easiest thing I’ve ever done. 

VERY BAD THINGS by Ilsa Madden-Mills (Plus bonus scene set in the future) - Nora Blakely is a Texas beauty queen who seems to have it all. But when secrets come out, she's hellbent on pushing the limits with alcohol, drugs, and meaningless sex. Guitarist Leo Tate is hotter-than-hell and a dirty talker. From the moment they meet, sparks fly and skeletons come out of the closet. Welcome to Briarcrest Academy. 

Uncovered Part One by Emily Snow - My name is Lizzie Connelly, and I have it all. The gorgeous apartment. The new job most women would rip out their own souls for—working for Margaret Emerson at Emerson & Taylor. I have one of those lives you’ve always dreamt about, the kind you only see on HBO. But, the thing is, that life is a lie. A façade.

Wrecked by Priscilla West


My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

About the Book:
A Mature New Adult Romance(18+) Novel by USA Today Bestselling Author Priscilla West
“There would be no happy ending for us. He was too damaged. I was too broken.”
Two years ago, Lorrie’s mother was murdered. But that wasn’t the end of it. Reeling from the tragedy, Lorrie’s father spiraled into alcohol, depression, and finally suicide.
The two most important people in Lorrie’s life are both gone but she’s still alive.
Trying to recover from the tragedy, Lorrie returns to campus, ready to pick up the pieces of her life. All Lorrie wants is to get back to “normal.”
Then she meets Hunter. The man, the legend, “The Hammer.”
Hunter is a cage fighter who takes on every fight like he’s got nothing to lose. His life is a tangled mess of girls, booze, and fist fights. And while it may seem like he’s got a devil-may-care attitude, he’s fighting a private cage-match with a monster he can’t defeat.
Lorrie knows that Hunter is exactly the type of guy she should stay away from, especially in her fragile state, but Hunter has other ideas.
As Hunter and Lorrie grow closer together, will they be able to overcome their pain and heal each other? Or will they both end up wrecked?
My Thoughts:
*I received this book for review from the publisher via Netgalley, but this in no way affects my thoughts expressed in this review*
This was my first book by Priscilla West, but it won't be my last. I was immediately pulled into Lorrie's story, and automatically connected with this character. Soon after, I felt the same about Hunter. These characters have both seen the ups and downs of life and yet they keep pushing on. 
After a few chance meetings these two become friends, but it's obvious to everyone(including them) that there is more to their relationship. The only problem is everyone has their secrets, and those secrets threaten to pull these two apart. I won't give any spoilers, though. 
This book is a great read and I can't wait to read the rest of the series! All I'm going to say is, Priscilla West knows how to write a good cliffhanger ending. I can't wait to see how this story unfolds!

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn

My Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars

About this Book:
Gemma just got dumped and is devastated. She finds herself back in the Hamptons for the summer—which puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friend that she wronged five years earlier. Do people hold grudges that long? 

When a small case of mistaken identity causes everyone, including Hallie and her dreamy brother Josh, to think she’s someone else, Gemma decides to go along with it.

Gemma's plan is working (she's finding it hard to resist Josh), but she's finding herself in embarrassing situations (how could a bathing suit fall apart like that!?). Is it coincidence or is someone trying to expose her true identity? And how will Josh react if he finds out who she is? 
Katie Finn hits all the right notes in this perfect beginning to a new summer series: A Broken Hearts & Revenge novel.



My Thoughts:
Having loved Second Chance Summer by this author(written under Morgan Matson), I was really excited to hear about this new series. For some reason, these tales of revenge always pull me right in. 
Gemma's character, I really liked overall. I have to say, though, that at times it was a little unbelievable to me that Gemma could really believe that Hallie wouldn't know who she was. Yet, everything seems to be going according to plan.
I really loved Josh's character, in fact he sort of sold the story for me when it hit some rough patches. I was always on the edge of my seat with that relationship, though. How can you start a relationship based completely on a lie? 
The one thing that totally makes me say "you have got to read this book" is that ending! No spoilers from me but all I'm going to say is cliffhanger central! I felt like the story was good not great until right there at that ending. Totally sold the next book for me and now I can't wait to read it!
