MAD MONDAYS: Flat-Out Celeste by Jessica Park

Title- Flat-Out Celeste

Author– Jessica Park

Publisher– Createspace

Amazonhttp://goo.gl/i5zNJl

BOOK SUMMERY:

For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she’s too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation.

But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe.

Justin Milano, a college sophomore with his own set of quirks, could be that person to pull her from a world of solitude. To rescue her—that is, if she’ll let him.

Together, they may work. Together, they may save each other. And together they may also save another couple—two people Celeste knows are absolutely, positively flat-out in love.

Whether you were charmed by Celeste in Flat-Out Love or are meeting her for the first time, this book is a joyous celebration of differences, about battling private wars that rage in our heads and in our hearts, and—very much so— this is a story about first love.

MY THOUGHTS:

‘We all have something. All of us. Every single person in this world has a quirk.’

This was the first time that I listened to an audiobook, and I am very happy that Flat-Out Celeste was my first. The story was truly a great one to both read and listen to.

Both  the characters in this book were very easy to like, especially Celeste and Justin. They were both socially awkward and bonded over their awkwardness. The two of them met because Justin emailed Celeste about attending the college he attends, he was suppose to invite her to the college’s met ups and woo her, but through their email they began a friendship. They brought out so much out in each other and ended up helping each other grow.

Since I feel like this is a book about friendship as well as first loves, let me talk about two of Celeste’s friends. Dallas and Zeke, they were both so great and I would love to see a book about them. They really were some of Celeste’s first friends and help her grow too. Through them, she gained more friends and loved her college application lessons with them.

I also like that both Celeste and Justin may not have been the most popular kids in school and that they were awkward and had quarks. Usually in these books the main girl is attracted to the popular boy or the bad boy and I like that Justin was neither.

I can not wait to read more from Ms. Parks since this was my first from her.

Mad Mondays: Abby Crossing by Ophelia London

My Thoughts:

I started reading Ophelia London’s work when she wrote the Definitely Maybe Series and I was really excited to job the review tour for The Abby Road Series. Just like the other book that I have read, I enjoyed the story as a whole.

There was just one thing that I did not like about this one, at first I felt a huge connection to the characters and loving their romance and all of a sudden the book jumped three months in advance. So, I felt like something was missing and I lost a bit of the connection. Then their story started back up again and I started to feel the connection again.

I am a reader who loves to read stories where the main characters grow. I think Abby grew a bit in the end, but it took her a very long time to lead up to that moment. She kept getting pushed around and I just wanted her to see what was truly going on in her life. Then there is Todd, I liked him but I cannot believe he did what he did and never looked back. I did love them together and I cannot wait to read the next book!

As a huge fan of music it was interesting reading a story about a pop star and the struggles she was going through. She had a lot to deal with starting with her manager and how he treated her. It was completely awful but I know things like that happen.

I also like that all of the chapters were names of different Beatles songs! It was nice since Abby was such a huge fan it was incorporated in that way.

BLURB:

It’s been exactly one day since rock star Abigail Kelly fled her chaotic life in L.A. to her sister’s home in Florida. One day without her demanding manager, paparazzi, ridiculous tour schedules, and recording sessions. For the first time in five years, she has the summer off. To be anonymous. A summer to not think about losing her brother…or that her once-normal life has turned into a mess of panic and heartbreak.
 But all it takes is one twist of fateto enter a stranger’s surf shop while trying to dodge some fansfor everything to change.
 Because the shop owner happens to be a really cute guy with an amazing laugh. With Todd, an ex-Marine sniper turned surfer, she feels things she hasn’t felt for a long time. Possibly never. But when the real world comes crashing back in, Abby is caught between the superstar she’s become…and the painfully real human being she longs to be.

Blurb:
Todd Camford went from Marine sniper to owning a beachfront surf shop in Florida, and he couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, the programming from his training hasn’t quite been eliminated. His ex called him an unfeeling cyborg, but he’s a free-flying, unfettered hawk, damn it. Relationships outside of family are out of the question…
And then she comes into his shop.
Everyone knows who Abigail Kelly is—mega rockstar, tabloid fixture. Still, nothing prepares Todd for Abby’s smoky gray eyes or the swift breathlessness of their instant chemistry. He’d be an ass (or possibly insane) to think he can resist her. Just for today, maybe he’ll keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn’t get mobbed. Because really, how much damage could one day with a super-hot, kick-ass celebrity really do?

Mad Mondays: Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott

Published March 16, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

24500775

Title- Wild Reckless

Author- Ginger Scott

Publisher- Smash Words

Release Date- March 17, 2015

Amazon-   http://goo.gl/0RsPmg

BOOK SUMMERY:

Kensington Worth had a vision for her senior year. It involved her best friends, her posh private school in downtown Chicago and time alone with her piano until her audition was perfected, a guaranteed ticket into the best music programs in the world.

Instead, a nightmare took over.

It didn’t happen all at once, but her life unraveled quickly—a tiny thread that evil somehow kept pulling until everything precious was taken from her. She was suddenly living miles away from her old life, trapped in an existence she didn’t choose—one determined to destroy her from the inside, leaving only hate and anger behind. It didn’t help that her neighbor, the one whose eyes held danger, was enjoying every second of her fall.

Owen Harper was trouble, his heart wild and his past the kind that’s spoken about in whispers. And somehow, his path was always intertwined with Kensington’s, every interaction crushing her, ruining her hope for any future better than her now. Sometimes, though, what everyone warns is trouble, is exactly what the heart needs. Owen Harper was consumed with darkness, and it held onto his soul for years. When Kensington looked at him, she saw a boy who’d gotten good at taking others down when they threatened his carefully balanced life. But the more she looked, the more she saw other things too—good things…things to admire.

Things…to love. Things that made her want to be reckless.

And those things…they were the scariest of all.

MY THOUGHTS:

Oh Ginger Scott! Wild Reckless put me through so many emotions just from the prologue! I thought reading Blindness put me through the ringer, this one was just as bad. Ever since I read Blindness I have not found a book that put me through so many emotions as this one did. Also, Cody has always been my favorite male character in all her books, my heart just went out to him and I became attached (This might be because he reminds me of someone who use to be in my life), but man did Owen change that!

I absolutely loved both characters and my heart went out to both of them! This was not only a story about young love; it was one about friendship and family too. Both characters were going through a lot with their families and they found a rock in each other. I like that in the beginning Owen and Kensington were attracted to each other, but at first they were enemies. I will agree with Kensi, I didn’t want to like him, but there was something about him that was intriguing. I loved characters and I hated characters and that just makes an amazing book.

Once you start this book, you will become completely engrossed, I found myself stay up late reading the book (I even fell asleep holding my kindle) and waking up at 4 am to finish the book up.

I know this will be a book that I read over and over again, I have to admit I already read it twice! I am so glad Ginger Scott gave me a chance to read this book before it comes out.

AN EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK:

I dodge backpacks and elbows through the busy hallway until I see the glass door of the principal’s office swing open, Owen stepping through, his own pink slip crumpled in his hand, his eyes still dark, angry.

“Are you okay?” I ask, walking up to him, my steps coming quicker. He grabs my hand fast, his grip on my fingers tight, almost painful, and pulls me behind him through the thick crowd in the hall until we reach the back door, near the loading zone for the cafeteria. He pushes down hard, forcing the door open, then pulls my arm, leading me around a corner to a line of recycling bins.

“I’m so sorry…” I start, but Owen’s hands find me fast, his fingers wrapping around my shoulders, his force moving me back until I’m flush with the wall, and then his lips crash down on me.

His hands slide from my shoulders to my neck and into my hair, his mouth covering mine as if he needs my air to breathe, and he closes the small distance between us, the warmth and hardness of him pressing into my body, my hands operating on their own instinct, finding his sides and back until I’m clinging to him, grabbing bunches of his black sweatshirt all at once.

Owen’s hand moves to his head while he’s kissing me, and he tosses his hat to the ground to the side of us, and I let my fingers move to his hair, weaving the strands in and out, letting the softness of them curl around me.

This is the best kiss of my life. Every kiss with Owen has been the best kiss of my life. But this one—it’s full of something more. His lips work mine for long seconds, his tongue passing over mine slowly, his teeth dragging over my bottom lip, my top lip, tugging on me and pulling me into him even deeper. I can feel his heartbeat through his shirt, and I let my hands roam over his chest and around his back again, the feel of him exactly as it is every time I dream.

Mad Mondays: Guarding His Heart by Annie Seaton

Published March 9, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

Guarding His Heart (Half Moon Bay #3)

Title- Guarding His Heart

Author- Annie Seaton

Publisher- Entangled Bliss

Release Date- March 10, 2015

Amazon-   http://goo.gl/CFQfAJ

BOOK SUMMERY:

Some people get under your skin.

Some get into your heart.

Bestselling author Liam Wyndham needed an escape, and Half Moon Bay, with its small town charm and beautiful ocean, is the perfect place to hide out from the scandal surrounding his estranged dead wife. A place where he can enjoy his writer’s block in sweet isolation. But all of his plans to become a surly recluse disappear when carpenter Georgie Sacchi marches into his house…

Georgie wants an adventure, and she has a plane ticket that promises her everything she needs—excitement, independence, and a way to escape the memory of her last ruined relationship. Still, she has one last job to complete before she can leave the country. The last thing she needs is a recalcitrant author with a gorgeous face (and a hot body) distracting her from her plans.

But life doesn’t always give you what you think you need…

MY THOUGHTS:

Another Entangled Biss book that I enjoyed reading from beginning to end! It was a great book to snuggle up on a snow day with. This book brought me to the warm weather while snow was falling outside.

Since this was a Bliss book there wasn’t a lot of drama and that is one of the main reasons why I like Bliss books so much! Liam went through a tragedy where he lost the woman he was married to, even though they were separated, he still cared for her. I like how he was able to open his heart up and give into his feeling for Georgie. Georgie on the other hand knew her feeling for Liam, but wouldn’t give into them because she was leaving and going on a trip she didn’t want to go on in the first place. There were so many times I got mad at her because she was just hiding behind this trip.

I always love a sweet contemporary romance that you can read from cover to cover in a day and this was one of them! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for exactly that!

Mad Mondays: Everything Has Changed by Mia Kayla

Everything Has Changed

Title- Everything has Changed

Author- Mia Kayla

Publisher- MAM Books LLC

Release Date- February 16, 2015

Amazon–   http://goo.gl/rxc3oi

BOOK SUMMERY:

Imagine finding the love of your life at the age of six.

Bliss Carrington did.

Bliss has known Jimmy Brason since first grade. He took on the role of the big brother Bliss never had, breaking Bliss out of her shy shell, encouraging her to have fun in high school, and pushing her to live her life to the fullest. They have always been friends—until one day, Bliss wanted more. Now seeing women everywhere swooning over Jimmy, head quarterback of the New York Cougars, is enough to drive her to madness.

Jimmy has been in love with Bliss forever, but she doesn’t know and she can never find out. In all the craziness of his fast track to fame and money, Bliss is the one person who has kept him sane. He firmly believes that history repeats itself and with his tainted past, he’s afraid that he’s fated to hurt her if he allows himself to follow his heart.

Bliss has watched Jimmy grow from a boy into a man, and it’s not fair that someone else will get to keep him when she knows in her heart that he only belongs to her.

When they tiptoe on the edge of love, can their friendship remain intact with both of them ignoring the rumblings that’s threatening to explode?

Everything Has Changed is a story of love, loss, and longing for the one you grew up loving.

MY THOUGHTS:

“‘Bliss,’ he whispered, ‘is defined as a state of perfect happiness… You’ve made this man the happiest man alive.'”

Everything has changed is a very emotional book and had me close to tears more than once. The two main characters, Jimmy and Bliss, where always there for each other through family problems to being there for each other through major events (prom, first games, and first kisses).

I like that there were flashbacks with in the store, I think it connected me more to the characters and the emotions that Bliss felt for Jimmy. I understood her feeling from the very beginning, but I couldn’t really feel what Jimmy was feeling. He seemed very hot and cold with her and I wanted to know why he was tutoring himself the way he was. I might have like this book to have a duel POV so I could truly see what he was actually feeling. I do feel like they had such an amazing connection. I love that Jimmy called Bliss every morning at 8 for a daily call and if she needed him or he was worried about her, he would make sure he was there for her (He just had to jump on a plane each time).

Of course when you like a book there are always things that you don’t like, and the one thing I didn’t like was all the relationships that Jimmy had with other women when he was so in love with Bliss. We only see it with one character, but it is hinted that there have been more girls than just her. Everyone even referred to her as “Jimmy’s girl” but he had all these other women that they all knew about, in a way it made me believe that he wasn’t as in love with her as I thought. Which a duel POV would have helped me figure out 😉

This is the first book where I didn’t get an epilogue, those are always my favorite. I would have liked to see where they ended up, to see if what happened in the end was true.

This book wasn’t just about two people in love but about friendship and family. I highly recommend this book to any new adult romance fans out there!

Mad Mondays: Greta and the Goblin King by Chloe Jacobs

Published February 9, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

Greta and the Goblin King (Mylena Chronicles, #1)

Title- Greta and the Goblin King

Author– Chloe Jacobs

Publisher- Entangled: Teen

Amazon–   http://goo.gl/1LMKnR

BOOK SUMMERY:

While trying to save her brother from a witch’s fire four years ago, Greta was thrown in herself, falling through a portal to Mylena, a dangerous world where humans are the enemy and every ogre, ghoul, and goblin has a dark side that comes out with the eclipse.

To survive, Greta has hidden her humanity and taken the job of bounty hunter—and she’s good at what she does. So good, she’s caught the attention of Mylena’s young goblin king, the darkly enticing Isaac, who invades her dreams and undermines her will to escape.

But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. An ancient evil knows she’s the key to opening the portal, and with the next eclipse mere days away, every bloodthirsty creature in the realm is after her—including Isaac. If Greta fails, she and the lost boys of Mylena will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back..

MY THOUGHTS:

“You’re deluding yourself if you think you can know who I am or what I want from spying on me in my dreams. Therein lies a realm of fantasy, and while it’s an interesting place to visit every once in a while, we both have to live in the real world, don’t we?”

My second grade class has been working on their fairy tale unit in Language Arts where they have been writing their own twists on the fairy tale of their choice. So, I way beyond excited to receive an ARC of Greta and the Glass Kingdom, the only problem was I didn’t read Greta and the Goblin King yet. Luckily, I already had a copy of the book in my Seven- Out- Of- This World box set from Entangled Publishing. After finishing this book, my first thought was, Why in the world did it take me so long to read this story?!?!?!

Greta saves her brother by pushing him out of the way of a witch’s fire in a gingerbread house (sound familiar?), but in the process, Greta falls into the fire and ends up falling into the dimension of Mylena, full of goblins, gnomes and other mythical creatures. I think this was a grand idea for a paranormal story and so different from the normal vampire and werewolf stories. We never really see a story where the main character, other than the human, to be a fairy or a goblin for that matter.

Ms. Jacob’s does a great job illustrating this new world. I could really imagine and see all the different settings and creatures, she described in vivid colorful images. She even makes the story interesting by adding and element where an eclipse changes the creatures in Mylena to their most vicious forms, and how a creature can stay in that form and become labeled as “Lost”.

Greta’s relationship with Isaac, the Goblin King was quite interesting, he would peruse her, and she would reject him time and time again. I also liked that Goblin’s in this story were portrayed in this story differently than I have seen in the past. Instead of the mean, vicious animals they are often written as, in this story they had quite the charm, especially Isaac.

Mad Mondays- Too Many Reasons by Kristen Strassel

Published February 9, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

TOO MANY REASONS (A Spotlight Series Novel) by Kristen Strassel is here! Check out the excerpt and giveaway below!

Displaying TMR.jpg

Title– Too Many Reasons

Author– Kristen Strassel

Publisher– Smashwords

Release Date– February 9, 2015

Amazon–   http://goo.gl/i1yPme

Book Summery:

Abby Gauthier is close to getting everything she’s worked so hard for. The band she manages, Sinister Riot, has been offered a major record contract. But it comes with a catch: the band must add Eli Jamison, winner of the talent show The Spotlight, to the lineup.

“You’ve been my favorite part of this city.”


Devon Sinclair is the singer of Sinister Riot, and he’s Abby’s best friend. She’s in love with him, but fears she’ll lose him if she makes the first move. Devon knows adding Eli to the band is a mistake, and he’s right. Eli’s interested in more than just making an album. He wants to take control of the band, and he wants to get to know Abby better. A lot better. When tensions between Devon and Eli threaten to destroy Sinister Riot, Abby must act on her true feelings or lose everything she’s ever wanted.

“I may not have been your first, but I’m going to make damn sure I’m your last.”

My Thoughts:

I tend to stay clear from Rock star novels, since it hits way too close to home and brings back hurtful memories. Then again, I can never pass up reading a Kristen Strassel novel. This book made me feel many different emotions and I loved every minute of it!

This was such a great easy read, I started reading and couldn’t believe it was already time to put in down for the night. If I could have stayed up all night reading, I would have. I needed to know what happened next, and Ms. Strassel defiantly kept me on my edge of my seat. I did not see some things coming in this book, or some of the confessions.

Character wise I loved Abby, I could relate to her so much, from wanting to work in the music industry to being in love with a musician who is my best friend. Then there was Devon, I went through so many emotions with him, I hated him then I liked him. Eli was one character I had very mixed emotions about, loved him and hated him and then liked him again. I do not agree with many things he did in the story, but I think he redeemed himself a little.

Even though this is the second book in the Spotlight Series, it can be read as a standalone. I have not read, Secondhand Heart, but I did read Trouble with Bree, and there is a situation that happens in the book this book that involves characters in the first two. Again, it does not affect reading Too Many Reasons if you haven’t read the other two.

I cannot wait to read another book by Kristen Strassel!!!

Book Excerpt:

“What the hell are you doing here? You scared the shit out of me.” He had a key, so it wasn’t like he didn’t have a permanent invite. But tonight? Come on.

“I wanted to make sure you got home safe.” He laid on the futon, one leg thrown over the back cushion. It didn’t appear that he was actually doing anything, but waiting for me. The cat was curled up on his stomach. Thank God Mallory still hadn’t come back. Or maybe not. She would have sent his ass packing.

“You could have just texted.” I took off my jacket and tossed it at him. Ziggy took offense, disappearing into some dark corner. I refused to sit next to him, instead I sank into the bean bag chair to unlace my boots. After dancing for a good part of the night, my feet were begging me to take them off. I hadn’t noticed until now.

“You didn’t answer me earlier.” He watched my fingers free my legs from the ties. Once I was only in my socks, I curled my legs under my body, but sitting practically on the floor made me feel too small and Devon too big. He was acting like an irrational asshole and I didn’t want to give him any more power. I practically jumped to my feet.

“Because I was out. With someone. And I didn’t want to be rude like some people and spend the whole night on the phone texting someone else.” Like Devon did with Lexi when he went out with me. I filled a glass with water and drank it all in one long sip. “Did I need to be concerned? Was I out with a serial killer?”

Devon scoffed. “No.”

“So what you really wanted to do was make sure I didn’t bring him upstairs with me.” I crossed my arms and started pacing in front of him. I wanted to ask him about all the things Eli had told me he’d said, but it just seemed petty. “What would you have done if I had?”

“You can do whatever you want, Abby.” He sat up, raking his fingers through his hair. “Where’d you go?”

“Magdalena’s.”

“Shrimp and grits? Hurricanes?”

I nodded. “Then I took him to—“

“The Apple Barrel.” Devon finished my sentence as he sat up. “All the things we like to do.”

“All the things I like to do, with any good company.” I stopped, arms still crossed. “Would you even be here if I’d gone out with anyone else?” I wondered if Devon had known about my date before he’d texted me tonight.

“I don’t know.” Our eyes locked in fury and frustration. “He didn’t even kiss you.”

“That’s not true.” My whole body shook.

Devon’s lips turned upward, a half-smile. “Your lip gloss is still perfect.”

“Maybe I put more on.”

“To come upstairs?” He shook his head. “No, you didn’t.”

“Why do you even care? Do you want to kiss me?” I couldn’t believe I actually said it. Out loud. A couple of drinks and one date and I was feeling really cocky.

In slow motion, Devon pushed himself up off the futon so he stood just inches from me. I didn’t move, or even uncross my arms. He rested his hands on my elbows, and looked down at me in a way he never had before. Like he was seeing me for the first time. My heart slammed against my ribcage for the second time that night, and I was glad my arms were there to keep everything in place. He ran his teeth against his lip ring, drawing my eyes to the motion. He closed his eyes and leaned forward.

I’d pictured this moment a thousand times, so some of it seemed very familiar to me: the chunk of hair that fell in his eyes as he lowered his face to mine, the way his bottom lip moved against his teeth when he felt unsure of himself.

No. It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

I turned my head and his lips brushed against my cheek. “Don’t.” I could barely speak.

“Abby.” His fingers moved against the back of my arm and I shivered. His words were so soft, if we weren’t so close I might not have heard them. “You asked me what I wanted.”

Frozen in place, I stared at my shoes next to the bean bag. “I don’t want you to do this because you’re pissed off that I went out with Eli,” I whispered. Eight years I waited for him to finally make that move, and I think I had the right to lay some ground rules. If I was going to kiss him, it wasn’t going to be cheap and full of regret. “That’s not how I want this to be.”
