Review: The Air He Breathes (Elements #1) by Brittainy C. Cherry

I was warned about Tristan Cole.
“Stay away from him,” people said.
“He’s cruel.”
“He’s cold.”
“He’s damaged.”

It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster.

But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me.

We were both empty.
We were both looking for something else. Something more.
We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays.

Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe.


My Review
4.5 Beautiful Stars!

I loved this book, it's just what I needed after reading some meh, okay ish books that really didn't do it for me.I need to firstly mention that I adore this authors books and writing, it's just amazing! You just don't expect the things that happen to happen and I have been meaning to review a book of hers. Every time something happens and I totally forget or I'm so busy I don't get a chance but this time I said to myself, as soon as you finish you will review this book even if its a short review so here it goes ;)

'People in town called him an asshole, and I could see why. He wasn’t nice, he wasn’t stable, and he was broken in all of the wrong and right places.'

I heard this was an emotional read and a lot of people had written in places they cried and I have got to agree it did have the heavy emotional bits that ripped you apart but there was so much more, it was funny, sweet, raw and beautiful.The author did a brilliant job and I vow to never put off any more of Brittainy C. Cherry's book that I download!

"No soulmate leaves the world alone; they always take a piece f their other half long with them."

This is a book about two people who have gone through a hard time and lost loved ones, it changes people. It can turn some into monsters, it can cause you to become closed off and shut down or it can change you for the better. Death changes people, you never come out the same. But you have to always remember that everything happens for a reason.


"Kiss Me?"

I don't want to go into detail about it because I think people need to stop reading synopsis and just kind of jump into books and find out for themselves. Experience it without reading what its about or knowing exactly what you will be stepping into. This book does have twists you don't see coming and basically I want more. The main characters were great even supporting characters I want Faye to have her own story. Tristan and Faye's shit burning seen was frikin hilarious!

'During the light days, we held each other close.During the dark days, we held each other closer.'

The one thing that made me mad was near the end half. Tristan you do not do that, that was messed up. I understood why he went and why he needed to but no communication? So abruptly without calmly thinking things through and I get it things where pretty crazy but being in Lizzie's position I don't know if I could be that forgiving but other than that it was awesome and I'm looking forward for more!!

Review: Unblocked - Episode Five (Timber Towers #5) by Marni Mann

Derek Block needs to protect those he cares about.

Frankie Jordan fears the loss of those she loves.

Darkness drives them.
But could it drive them apart?
This is Episode Five, the final Episode in the Timber Towers Series.

My Review

4 Terrific Stars!

First of all I'd like to thank Marni Mann because this serial has made me more likely to pick up more serials, like I always try avoid them and feel like they aren't for me. I was so wrong!

“He gave me what I needed...he gave me everything I needed.”

This is the last part in the five part series and oh what a journey it has been.It all came down to this final conclusion where we have everything laid open and how every piece made sense.I'm sad to see it end, I'd have loved more to it. Okay I have to say I was kind of hoping that the ending would have some of hint at babies! Little baby Derek or Frankie and I guess I wanted to see them playing the roles of parents to finish off the serial.

You see character development as the parts go on, you see them change and grow.Even their relationship becomes more open and without all the secrecy there is a growth of trust and love.This serial has been a rough, hopeful, forbidden yet dirty hot and raw. They have surpassed all these roadblocks and finally made it.

I can't wait to read more from Marni Mann because I'm hoping it can only get better ;)

Review: Unblocked - Episode Four (Timber Towers, #4) by Marni Mann

Derek Block is ready to fight.
Frankie Jordan must make a decision.
Their pasts are demanding attention.
Confessing their truth may not be enough.
But can their intense passion sustain them?
This is Episode Four of the five-episode Timber Towers novella series.

My Review

4 Stars!!

This is episode 4 of the five part serial by Marni Mann and well I have to say this woman really knows how to keep you hooked into the book. I just wanted to quickly rush into the next one and see what happens next. The episodes are always left at a cliffhanger f sorts which really gets you excited for the next part, awesome thing is that they don't disappoint!

In this part you delve deeper in the characters and their pasts. It was like each part was slowly revealing a part f the puzzle, a part of a whole that is to all come together in the end. Frankie and Derek are two strong willed driven characters that have a lot to lose if they become vulnerable. They both have been keeping their past a secret and when it all comes out will they be able to continue or will it shatter everything?

Each part consisted of growth in the relationship between the main characters, a forbidden relationship they shouldn't be perusing yet it all becomes too much and feelings over ride all the fears. It all comes together with one hot bang ;)

My Review
4 Awesome Stars!!

I've really been looking for this book, any book related to the Mayson's family I am all in for. After reading Until July and getting a small glimpse at Jax and Ellie at the end.I just knew it would be another book of ARR that I would love. I know people like to hate on insta-love and how it is so unrealistic and so on but I just don't care.I read books to escape reality, I don't need another dose of reality in books. Well it all depends on my mood and I was in an inst-love kind of mood so this book just did the trick.I don't think any books in the Until series has let me down and I just want more!

"You were made for me. You're everything I never knew I wanted."

Jax is the son of Cash and Lily and I adored that book and couldn't wait to see how this would go. I Loved Ellie and Jax's chemistry,they clicked so well. How they felt about each other and everything that came with the BOOM was new and different. Whilst Jax turned full on alpha, Ellie was cautious and I guess scared to jump into something so quickly. And well as you all know Mayson's don't exactly do the going slow, they kind of take over. Ellie has lived a rough life and when the opportunity to give Hope a safe house to live in she takes it, anything to keep Hope safe even if it means moving in with Jax. Jax was a loving alpha who just wanted to take care of Ellie and Hope. Aww Hope and Jax moments were adorable, he fit into their little family perfectly as Hope and Ellie fit right into his big family.

Okay one thing that was constantly on my mind when I read this book was frikin Sage's book. I can't even wait, I really need to know whats going to happen and how and when will we get his book? I need to know more about this situation. Looking forward to more in this series!

Review: Worth It (Forbidden Men, #6) by Linda Kage


I fell in love once.

It was amazing. She was amazing. Life was amazing.

I lived for each time I could see her, and nothing else mattered, not that our families were enemies, our time together was forbidden, or we had to meet in secret.

Our love could conquer all.

Until it didn't.

So I was ripped away from the love of my life and shoved into hell, forced to continue without her.

It shattered me, broke the best parts of me, left me permanently damaged.

Or so I thought.

Years later, I swear history’s trying to repeat itself because she’s back in my life, and I’m just as drawn to her as I was before. But I'm older and wiser now, and I know she should stay away from a worthless ex-con like me.

So, I will not let her in. I absolutely refuse to hurt her. I will keep her away.

Then again, sometimes risking your greatest fear to get to a smile makes everything worth it, and besides, I’m not sure I can resist her, anyway.

This is the story of how Felicity Bainbridge changed my life forever, starting one summer day long ago after I was forced to change a dirty diaper...

--Knox Parker

My Review
4 Stars!!

“No matter what happens tonight, don’t ever change, okay? You are fun and sweet and amazing just the way you are. You make the world a better place because you always find the bright side. You are the bright side. And if I’m ever going to make it through this, I need to know you’re out there, still glowing and making the world bright.”

Linda Kage, woman you really know how to write an awesome book that keeps me intrigued from start to finish. And that little part at the end about Asher? What the hell are you trying to do to me? I need the next book right now!! I hate waiting omg you are going to kill me.There is no slow boring parts, every part flows and makes you want more. I didn't want it to end and yet I couldn't stop reading.

When I found out at the end of Ten's book that the next book was about some new person called Knox I was a bit like eh? Who? Why do we need a new addition I love the forbidden crew. I felt like he may not fit in or that it wouldn't be as good as the rest but oh how wrong I was. He fit right in as well as Felicity.

'She wasn’t like anyone I’d ever met… She didn’t treat me like a nobody. In fact, I don’t think anyone had ever treated me the way Felicity treated me, or looked at me the way she looked at me. Like I was something special. Like I was someone.'

I don't usually like a book that goes back and forth from past to present but again LK knows how to do it because it so worked here.I loved how cute and adorable the past was,watching the the sweet relationship bloom when Felicity and Knox are kids and then having the rough, edgy matured version of them in the present.At times I got so stuck into one section either past or present and I just wanted it to carry on yet it all made sense in the end.Every piece is slowly unraveled, the only thing I wanted more on was more aspects of Knox's life in jail or a little flashback to a time in prison. Or him gradually getting better after the trauma he faced. I also wanted more of Knox with Pick's babies because why not!

My heart broke for Knox, everything he lost. And Bentley aww damn I did not expect that and everything else that happened. It was like one blow after another, there is only so much a person can take before they start to crack.
Both Felicity and Knox had families who didn't really care about them. Felicity was usually left to do whatever unless she was needed. Knox lived in a big family with not enough money and had to make ends meet as well with a drunk father and a mother that was hardly present. One rich, one poor, both families lacking love. Two kids who don't belong finding each other in the woods. A chance meeting that changes everything.

“We’ve never really been apart. From the moment you bumped into me in those woods, we’ve belonged to each other … I don’t care if we’ve grown up. We’re still Knox and City at the core, and we’ll always love each other. You know why?” I leaned in to whisper … “Because we don’t know how to stop.”

BETRAYAL is a full-length novel and the first of five in the INFIDELITY series.



I motioned around the patio. "Is this what you do? You save women from the resort leaches and lure them to your lair?"
"My lair? Am I Batman?"
"Are you? I don't know."
He smirked. "If only I could make a living at doing just that, but alas, no. You're my first rescue."
I stopped my reach for a piece of cheese and looked back up at him. "You're first?"
"My first rescue,” he clarified. “Hardly my first."
He lifted his glass toward me in a toast. After I lifted mine, he said, "To you, Charli with an I, and to learning more about you."
After our glasses clinked and we both took a sip, I asked the question that I'd been dying to know ever since our morning encounter. "You seem to have a clear advantage. You know my name, but I've yet to learn yours."
"Do I?"
"Do you what?"
"Do I have an advantage?” He leaned closer. “Do I know your name? You see, I had the resort's reservations scoured. I wanted to send a gift to your room and confirm our dinner, yet Charli was nowhere to be found."
I took a deep breath. "Well, I'm here with my sister. I guess my name isn't on the reservation."
"You're sister?"
"Yes, and you—if I were to have the reservations scoured?"
The sun had now fully set, falling below the water and the darkening sky was beginning to fill with stars, especially over the water. 
"Would you believe, Batman?" When I didn't respond, he said, "Bruce Wayne?"
Though I pursed my lips, I felt the twinkle in my eyes.
