I like Slade, he is a little rough around the edges but he means well. He wants to do better, be better for Kensey which is why this is such a swoon worthy moment.

Waiting on Wednesday (8) Bookish Boyfriends


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.





In this contemporary YA, a teenager’s favorite literary heroes woo her in real life

The first of two books in an intended paperback original series about a girl whose classic literary crushes manifest in real life. Merrilee Campbell, 16, thinks boys are better in books, chivalry is dead, and there’d be nothing more romantic than having just one guy woo her like the heroes in classic stories. She’s about to get the chance to test these daydreams when she, her best friend, Eliza, and her younger sister, Rory, transfer into Reginald R. Hero High, where all their fantasies come true—often with surprising consequences.

Why am I waiting?


Classic literary crushes manifest in real life…. Hellooo Mr. Darcy. Please have a Mr. Darcy because really who could bet a Mr. Darcy?

Waiting on Wednesday (7) Ace of Shades


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.





Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.

Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.

Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn't have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne's offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems. 


Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi's enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…

And she’ll need to play.


Why am I waiting?


A missing momma, a con man, and a proper young lady going to City of Sin. This one has the makings of being a great book.

Logan leaned in close, bringing his body heat with him, and whispered in my ear, "I've waited years for you. For another... so that I wouldn't feel...alone. And now you're here and you don't even want it."

I like Logan, he holds humanity in his hands and he bears the weight of it completely. Sloane is going through a lot and I hope that it causes her to grow up fast.

Review: The Dating Debate


Author Chris Cannon
Format e-book
Print Length 242 pages
Publisher Entangled Crush
Published Feb. 5, 2018



Nina Barnes thinks Valentine’s Day should be optional. That way single people like her wouldn’t be subjected to kissy Cupids all over the place. That is, until her mom moves them next door to the brooding hottie of Greenbrier High, West Smith. He’s funny, looks amazing in a black leather jacket, and he’s fluent in Harry Potter, but she’s not sure he’s boyfriend material. 

West isn’t sure what to make of Nina. She’s cute and loves to read as much as he does, but she seems to need to debate everything and she has a pathological insistence on telling the truth. And West doesn’t exactly know how to handle that, since his entire life is a carefully constructed secret. Dating the girl next door could be a ton of fun, but only if Nina never finds out the truth about his home life. It’s one secret that could bring them together or rip them apart. 

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is not for anyone who has to get in the last word, but it is for all book nerds, especially those who live next door to so called unapproachable gorgeous guys. There’s no debating the chemistry.



My Opinion


Nina lives in a house that is attached to another house, built by brothers back in the day they rent from the family who lives next door. The mother is never to be seen, the father never smiles and the son, well he is a mystery. Not one that she is too concerned with until one day when she tries to escape her brother’s matchmaking skills. She accidentally stumbles across West (next door neighbor) trying to tell his ex no to the Valentine’s Day Dance that she wants him to take her to. West looks up and sees Nina and blurts out that they are going together. Hence The Dating Debate commences.

Nina is a cute gal with need to read, books are her life, eat chocolate and argue. West is a guy with the weight of his family’s life on his shoulders. What could go wrong? Throw in a closing library, extra credit, opposite sides of the debate and you got the perfect mix of banter and laughter.

I related to Nina instantly, especially once I found out why she hates lying so much. How her momma handled the situation with her dad was masterfully. She was not an absent parent, nor did she take his betrayal lying down. This of course will influence both of her kids. While Nina is a book nerd, it came across a little bit more like a Harry Potter fangirl than a true book dragon.

West’s homelife sucks. I hate that he is more like the parent than his parents. I get why it had to be that way, but I felt bad for him. I understand his need to have an escape room and to keep his homelife a secret. I probably would have done the same thing. I liked that his parent’s behavior is explained in the end, and I don’t know if I would have handled the situation any better than his mother did.

I was looking for an easy read that left me with a smile on my face, The Dating Debate did not disappoint. If you like a fast paced fluffy feel good romance, this is the book for you. This is the first book in the Dating Dilemas series, and I hope the next one comes out soon. I am also hoping that it stars Lisa and Matt, hey a reader can dream can’t I. 

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars


Favorite Quote “Feel free to punch him if the opportunity arises.”

Lisa- Nina’s bestie
Matt- West’s cousin

Review: Wild Card



Author Rachel Vincent 
Format e-book 
Print Length 261 pages

Published Dec. 25, 2018 

Kaci Dillon is a man-eater.

37120058She’s grown up on the fringes of shifter society, hearing the whispers. One desperate act as a starving, terrified child has made her the first tabby in history with no romantic prospects. But whatever. Eighteen is too young to get married anyway. Still, when she stumbles upon an opportunity to get away for a few days, who could blame her for seizing it?

Justus Alexander is screwed.

Confined to the South-Central territory, awaiting trial for crimes he committed as a traumatized, newly infected stray, Justus has discovered that the tribunal already intends to vote for the death penalty. He has no choice but to run. Too young to touch the trust fund that could finance his escape, he’s betting on a big win at the poker tables—until Kaci, his secret crush, catches him sneaking out and demands that he take her with him to Las Vegas

After a wild night she can’t remember, Kaci wakes up with a ring on her finger, next to a young billionaire who can’t access his fortune until he turns twenty-five—or ties the knot. If she can keep her hands off her hot, charismatic new groom, she can have their unconsummated marriage annulled. But can she really abandon Justus to his death sentence, just to undo her own mistake? 

My Opinion 


When we first met Kaci she was a young werecat that had attached herself to Faythe. Because of her frightening experience of becoming a tabby with no one around to guide, she had hurt those that she loved and was stuck in her tabby form. Faythe rescued her and took her in, all was forgiven by the council for what she did when she was in shock but not by the guys who were supposed to be vying for her affection. Yep, she is the only tabby without a willing shifter to date. Justus is a willing shifter, but he is pretty certain that he will be sentenced to death since he two hurt people when he was infected with the shifter virus. Before people could get to him and tell him what was going on. Really the council should have some type of protocol for helping others assimilate into their world. 

I loved being back in the shifter world, seeing Marc and Faythe as they act as alphas together. Not only as alphas but also as parents. They did raise Kaci for the past several years. She has turned out fairly normal, given her feral status when we first met her. Kaci is smart, has learned the ways of the world in which she stumbled upon and is not afraid to use what she knows. Faythe and Marc raised her to be a good wife to a strong alpha. Now she just needs to find that person. 

I feel bad for Justus, his life has not been easy, losing his parents at an early age, for his big brother whom he is close to suddenly distance himself. Then he gets a mysterious fever and the next thing you know his is on trial for infecting someone and murdering someone else (who totes deserves it). Now he hears that he isn’t getting a fair trial. I would probably run too. I enjoy their interactions with each other and their interactions with their alphas. You can tell that they hold Faythe and Marc in high respect and are trying hard not to disappoint them. They both also take their advice, instead of dismissing it which is a nice break from most new adult novels. 

The back and forth banter is great at creating an environment of tension. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. I like that they keep it pretty PG-13ish. Which makes sense, they are really young and they did wind up married to each other. I like how Justus handles the situation when he realizes that Kaci may not be on board with the plan as much as he thought she was. 

Overall, a fast pace read that allows you to forget your worries and stresses for a few short hours. Kaci’s hatred of the gender inequality is pretty spot and will have you giggling as she is ranting. Justus sweet mannerisms will make you want to make him your next book boyfriend. 

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars 


Favorite Quote “Nothing, I just… I’m tired of being the man-eater.”

“What? I thought you wanted to go to the Valentine’s Day Dance. It’s all you’ve griped about for a week.” 

How could he be so stupid? There were days when I’d swear one of us was adopted. “Wrong. I griped about the stupidity of the holiday because it makes single people feel defective.” 

He scratched his head, looking genuinely confused. “Which is why I thought you’d be happier if you had a date.”

The idiot's heart was in the right place...but still.  "I never asked you play matchmakers."

Rarely do you see a swoon worthy moment between siblings but Jason finding a date for his sister is pretty swoon worthy.  He thought about her and her feelings which is really all a gal can ask for.
