I loved this series so much! It‘s hot, it‘s humorous, it‘s a little dark, and very relatable.
And now it‘s going to be a Netflix series!!! I‘m so excited.

Wild Thing | JA Huss

Wild thing was a bit darker, like I'm used to Huss' books being. And there was some very good suspense mixed in with the romance and the twists and turns of the story.

Shadow of the Fox is really well done, there are demons and dragons, monks with powers, and a strong, young female protagonist. 😍

ILLUMINAE. Expediente_01 (Illuminae 1) | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

The audio version of this book is SO good! There‘s a full cast narrating, and I have to say I was so engrossed in the story I didn‘t want my commute to end :)
Excitement, space-ships, very smart and strong female characters as well as a crazy AI - what more can a book lover wish for?

Release day review - one of my favorite reads of 2017 so far! Until it Fades features an extremely hot hockey player, a single-mom waitress and a strong connection that one of them wants to keep private.

One of the reasons why I loved Remember When so much is that it takes place in the 90s, and even if I was in my late teens in Europe, I felt a lot of the things the characters went through was similar to my own life back then. The characters were well fleshed out, the story appealed to me, and overall, I was a very happy reader!

Tragic is a gritty, real story about a girl who is running from an abusive relationship and ends up doing erotic photo shoots to make ends meet. When she meets Claire, Antoine and Ronin, Rook‘s life does take a turn that seems to be better now she will have a roof over her head, earn money and feel safe. Only things aren‘t as easy as they seem, and she might just be playing with fire because of the way she feels in these photo shoots.

The Psy-Changeling series is one of my favorite series, because it mixes paranormal romance with urban fantasy and science do. The writing is so good it always transports me to far away places, and I have to make sure I have something to eat and drink before I start #reading!

The writing here is so good, and I keep thinking I want it to be translated to English so all my bookish friends can read it and love it, too. I am at the beginning still, but the world building and the character development just touch me, and I am eager to know more about how things work here...

This story touched me deeply. There is so much pain. So much injustice. But there is still hope, because two women managed to put their differences and their resentments aside and work together for salvation.

Not only do I really love 'the company' universe, I just find the whole gang that have had Sasha's back since she was a teen so enticing. Wasted Lust is one of my favorites, because it ties the Rook and Ronin universe into the 321 universe, and the suspense is palpable from start to finish! I have already read the story a while ago, and now, I'm revisiting with audio - still love it!

It was so enlightening to learn about the Hollows before the Turn, and I loved getting back into the universe I enjoy spending time in, and see what happened - and why the humans were so afraid of tomatoes ;)

Slammed: A Novel | Colleen Hoover

Slammed blew me away, I laughed, I cried and my heart was broken, then fixed again! Lake has to be one of the best and strongest female MC's I've had the pleasure of getting to know ever. And Will is exceptional as well. The hand life handed those two was not the easiest hand to be dealt, but they did deal with it, and they did it in an amazing way!

Tempting Tempo | Michelle Mankin

Tempting Tempo was a strong, fast-paced story, Mel needed to reassess her choices, and Sager had to stand strong in the face of adversity.
Beautiful romance, but dealing with a very important social issue as well.

The psychological thriller aspect of this novel was really well done, and I found myself filling with doubt and fear more than once!

Metaphors and similes make my head hurt, picking apart those sentences in Language Arts, making all those words fall away from their sentences and separating them into gerunds and modifiers and whatever's. It's like sentence massacres, those poor words bleeding sadly all over the page. I don't know why school has to take everything good and turn it boring and painful and bad. If I ran a school, I'd make it fun. I'd make it better.

Between the delicious naughtiness of Bram and the more prim and proper Nicola, this worked for me on every level!
The Offer is a well-written romance with mature characters, and I loved listening to them! Of course, I especially loved Bram‘s Scottish brogue, so hot!
The Offer shows that while on the surface, a single mom and a Scottish rogue – confirmed womanizer to boot – don‘t have much in common...
