Book Review: Honey on my Mind (The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson #3) by Maria Murnane

Honey on Your Mind (The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson Book 3) by [Murnane, Maria]

For Waverly Bryson, life is anything but boring! And never is that fact more evident than in Maria Murnane’s delightful third novel about the irrepressible heroine. This time around, Waverly faces a game-changing opportunity: an offer to turn her popular advice column into a regular guest spot on the new TV show Love, Wendy. It could be the break of a lifetime—but for a few not-so-minor details. For starters, Waverly’s acceptance of the job means moving clear across the country, giving up her rent-controlled apartment, and leaving behind her best friends McKenna and Andie. Oh, and there’s the fact that TV host extraordinaire Wendy Davenport is none-too-pleased by the prospect of Waverly usurping her broadcast throne. Then there’s Jake, Waverly’s boyfriend. He’s as crazy about her as ever. His mother, on the other hand? Not so much. But Waverly wouldn’t be Waverly if she didn’t tackle these challenges head on, with all the zeal, good humor, and, yes, occasional catastrophe that we’ve come to expect from “the American Bridget Jones.” Witty, light-hearted, and fun, Honey on Your Mind is Waverly Bryson at her best.


Oh man. There are so many “changes” in this book happening for Waverly and her friends and family. Waverly herself has many changes happening but they are GOOD changes. Jake, Andie, Makenna, Shane, Kristina and more are back in the third installment of the Waverly Bryson saga.

We start out with Waverly deciding to accept a job and make a huge move because of it. I think this is the catalyst that sets off a few of the reactions that happen in the book. Waverly’s moments are still here in this book and she has a couple.

I so totally wish that some of the Honey products were available and on the market now! I would love to have a few of them. Haha. Some of the things said in the book hit close to home about dating and whatnot for me. Definitely had to laugh at the “emails” Waverly received and read.

Overall, a great addition to the Waverly saga and I can only image what happens in the next book!

New Release: Buyer Beware (Caldwell Brothers #1) by Colleen Charles

Buyer Beware (Caldwell Brothers #1) by Colleen Charles

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 10, 2017

 

Synopsis

I know all about histype.

Rich. Check.

Powerful. Check. Check.

Nixon Caldwell’s hot as hell and just as entitled. He lives in a swank Vegas penthouse on top of his equally posh boutique casino. I’ve lived in a dilapidated seventies trailer far too long to have patience for billionaire playboys that think they can have everything they want, whenever they want it. He stands for everything I’m against. Which is why my obsession with him makes zero sense. Nothing about him is attractive to me.

Nothing.

Except the kindness lurking underneath the Armani clad outer shell. There’s a mystery there that I yearn to explore. So when he offers to help me and my gamble-a-holic brother rise from the ashes of our meager existence, I grasp the brass ring with both hands. It doesn’t take long to realize he’s only doing it so he can control me. He wants to own me, just like every other rich bastard inside this glittery town that consumes a person’s soul right along with their cash.

Nixon Caldwell needs to be taught a lesson. I’m not the kind of girl he can buy and sell. But his newfound tenderness and vulnerability pull at my heart strings until my solid walls come tumbling down and I let him in. My Cinderella story unfolds right before my eyes. And I’m happy.

The happiest I’ve ever been since my parents died in a horrific car accident.

Until a vicious sociopath and a haunting secret from the past threaten to destroy every single thing I’ve just sold my soul to possess.

About the Author

After 26 years in Corporate leadership at a Fortune 500, I discovered people within the organization lacked integrity. I’d always known deep in my soul that I was trying to fit a square peg into a round hole since I’m the typical creative type. I miss my staff but I don’t miss the corporate world. It’s been said that the Universe will let you know if something isn’t right for you. The first time, it will hit you with a pebble. Then a brick. Then a boulder. Let’s just say that I got flattened. When my fifteen pound toy dog, Nigel, was threatened, I knew it was time to say goodbye.

It’s true.

Here’s what I found within the first thirty days of being free. Writing stories from my heart that readers love means more to me than working myself into an early grave for people who only care about their bottom line.

My heart has never been more full and my soul has never been more satisfied.

I’ve never worked so hard in my life but it doesn’t even feel like work. It’s worth it. All of it. Because it’s about the joy that’s found within the journey. The highs and the lows because I get to write stories for all of you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading, enjoying and recommending the stories that I write. When you share my work with others, nothing is more rewarding. Your word of mouth is my very best friend … that, and your reviews. There is nothing more important to me than all of you.

I love to hear from my readers and answer all communications personally.

Review: Where I Belong (Alabama Summer #1) by J. Daniels

Where I Belong (Alabama Summer Book 1) by [Daniels, J.]

Amazon Description: When Mia Corelli returns to Alabama for a summer of fun with her childhood best friend, Tessa, there’s only one thing keeping her on edge. One person that she’d do anything to avoid.

Benjamin Kelly. World’s biggest dickhead.

Mia hates him with a fury and has no desire to ever see him again. When she decides to start her summer off with a bang and finally give away her v-card, she unknowingly hands it over to the one guy that excelled at making her life miserable, learning a valuable lesson in the process.

Always get the name of the guy you’re going home with.

Ben can’t get the girl he spent one night with out of his head. When she leaves him the next morning, he thinks he’ll never see her again. Until he sees her lounging by the pool with his sister.

Mia is determined to hate Ben, even though she can’t forget him.

Ben is determined to prove he’s not the same guy he used to be.

What happens when the one person you wish never existed becomes the one person you can’t imagine being without?


Where I Belong is the first book in the Alabama Summer series by author J. Daniels.

I picked this book up while it was free. I’ve heard good things about it and I can see why. I absolutely loved reading this book. I read it in the course of a few hours.

Mia is so adorable. I loved all the shit she gave Ben and her freak out that she had. I could totally see something like this happening to someone in real life, and I’m sure it has somewhere. This is one of those books that plays out like a movie in your head while you’re reading it.

This story is roughly 225+ pages. I love long books, because let’s face it, some book require more pages than others to get the story just right. I think this book is perfect where it is, which I don’t normally think that! I almost ALWAYS think books need another chapter or two but not this one!

You can currently purchase this book for free: here


Main Female Character: Mia

Main Male Character: Ben

Favorite Character: Tessa, definitely Tessa….and Ben’s son, Nolan

Most Hated Character: Nolan’s Mom

Her plan to live a secluded life is threatened by one powerful glance. The perfect stranger and an unexpected run-in stir emotions Lilly would rather never feel again.

When she’s taunted by what could have been and tempted by what could be will she be able to make the choice between the man who holds her heart and the man who could heal it?

Melissa Trujillo knows suffering. She’s tasted it, touched it, injected it. Sobriety is a gift, but it isn’t enough to wash away her secrets.

His eyes meet hers. Her hand fits his.

Kieran finds his muse.

EXCERPT:

“I wouldn’t trade you for any woman in the world, Raven.” He clutches my hand tightly before pressing it over his chest. “You are my heart. I love you, and I’d never do anything to fuck things up between us again.”

I smile, letting my guard down. “You’re a really good guy sometimes, you know.”

“I’m a really good guy for you. I don’t care what anyone else thinks of me.”

“You’re a really good guy. Don’t pretend to be an asshole.” I tap my fingers over his heart.

He draws me to him, and I rest my head on his chest, listening to the rhythmic sound of his heartbeat. “I would kill any man who ever tried to touch you. You are mine.”

“I am yours,” I reply, dropping my walls and allowing myself to feel for him.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing.

It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.

And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.

Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.

The First Year
Genevieve Gannon
Published by: HarperCollins
Publication date: April 24th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

The first year of marriage is hard no matter what. Throw in jealous exes, high-pressure careers and two wildly different families, and the degree of difficulty goes up a few more notches. Determined to beat the odds, one couple comes up with a plan to keep their romance alive – but life has other ideas.

Saskia is an up-and-coming jewellery designer, waiting tables at a trendy cafe to keep her fledgling company afloat. Andrew is a corporate lawyer who wants to be known for more than his family’s money. They’re passionate about their work and each other, but with Andy’s job in jeopardy and Saskia’s jewellery label taking off, the pressure is taking its toll.

As life pulls them in different directions, the two of them are forced to decide: Just how important is their marriage? And how hard are they willing to work to protect it?

Author Bio:

Genevieve Gannon is a Melbourne-based journalist and author. Her writing was first published in the St Monica’s Primary School newspaper, The Monical, in the form of a mince pie recipe she completely made up. She lifted her standards of journalistic integrity and wrote stories for music and fashion street press magazines while at university before moving to Canberra to do a journalism cadetship. In 2011 she joined the national news wire, Australian Associated Press, where she covered crime, politics and entertainment. Her work has appeared in most major Australian newspapers including The Age, The Australian and The Daily Telegraph.

Genevieve apologises unequivocally to any of her fellow students and their parents who tried to bake mince pies using the recipe she wrote when she was 10. But if you’re putting four cups of plain flour and four cups of self-raising flour into pasty that doesn’t call for butter, you’ve only got yourself to blame. She currently lives in Melbourne where she is a court reporter. At night time she writes romantic comedies. Husband Hunters is her first novel.
