Book Review: “Cooking for a Billionaire” by Anna Collins

Hey guys!

So, I finally finished reading “Cooking for a Billionaire” by Anna Collins.

I got this book on iBooks.

This book is about a girl who has her own Cake Creations company. One day, she gets a request from a man who piques her interest. She makes the cake for him and winds up getting into a very steamy relationship with him, along with a couple other people. There is no secret that they are…getting jiggy with it…and they gladly show it off.

I enjoyed this book, but at the same time, I didn’t. When I first downloaded this book, I thought it was going to be around the same plot line as “Young & Hungry” (ya know, like TV Show on Freeform), but boy was I wrong! This book was nothing like that. It was like a cake creation bakery meets “Fifty Shades of Grey”. I was shocked. It wasn’t anything like “cooking for a billionaire”. It was more like “bake a cake for me and get laid”.

Until my next post,

ARC Review: “Arousal” by Simone Sowood

Hey guys!

I received an Arc in exchange for an honest review.

Here is the overview from GoodReads:

Fake Girlfriend, Real Arousal. A woman I’ve never seen before just told her father I’m her boyfriend. I walked into the restaurant to grab dinner between important meetings and there she was, red cheeked and fury in her electric blue eyes. I figure I’ll help her out with whatever she has going on with her father, so I kiss her. If she wants to be what’s on my menu, that’s fine by me. As she melts into my arms, the taste of her lips and the fire in her eyes hits me in the gut. She’s mine. This might be a game to her, but I’m playing for real. And trust me when I say I never lose. I’m going to use my vast wealth and power to get her exactly where I want her. Who knows, I might even tell her who I really am.

**

You will never be able to look at chocolate the same way again…I know I can’t. This book is full of plot twists and extraordinary sex scenes. The only thing I didn’t like was that it took me forever to read – there was just so much context to grasp onto.

Until my next post,

Excerpt from, The Book of Summoning:

Law One: A summoner is responsible for all creatures it lets through from the netherworld.

Dacie Cantar wishes someone had explained the Laws of Summoning to her before she watched a shadowy creature crawl out of a painting at the local arcade. At least it explains the strange things she’s witnessed since moving in with her great-aunt, after her mother’s untimely death. But who wants to be followed by shadows the rest of their life? Add that to being stalked by a strange boy at school, who just might be her Tovaros (aka soulmate), it’s about all Dacie can handle in her new life.

As she nears her seventeenth birthday, will she be ready for her new responsibilities, or will the shadows that stalked her mother until her death, finally consume Dacie, too? And then there’s Law Two…

 

 

Now onto my review!!!

I absolutely adored this novel! I was a bit skeptical at the beginning that I would not like this book at all, but that turned out to be false very quickly. The beginning was kind of slow for me, but it quickly turned into something that was beyond my expectations. I loved this book! The writing an excellently done and the characters…..I loved them! I really cannot wait until the next book comes out!

Book Review: “Famous In Love” by Rebecca Serle 

Hey everyone!

I had recently bought this book from Books-A-Million. I thought it was going to be a fun little read…and it was.

Here is the synopsis from GoodReads:

When Paige Townsen gets plucked from high school obscurity to star in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a bustling film set on the shores of Maui, and she is spending quality time with her costar Rainer Devon, one of People‘s Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie’s famous love triangle, Paige’s crazy new life begins to resemble her character’s. In this exciting tale of romance and drama, both on-and offscreen, Paige must adjust to a crazy new life without the daily support of her friends and family, while figuring out who she is–and who she wants–as the whole world watches.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book! I loved every word of it! I loved the characters of Paige, Rainer, and Jordan. I don’t know who I love Paige with more…..Rainer or Jordan. The ending surprised me! I so cannot wait to read the next book!

Until my next post,

Stephanie

Book Review: “Not That Kind of Girl” by Siobhan Vivian

Hi everyone!

I was iffy about reading this book. I bought this book because I absolutely love Siobhan Vivian and her writing style. The overview seemed a little strange to be, but I read it and I loved it!

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

Slut or saint? Good friend or bad friend? In control or completely out of it? Life is about making choices, and Natalie Sterling prides herself on always making the right ones. She’s avoided the jerky guys populating her prep school, always topped honor roll, and is poised to become the first female student council president in years. If only other girls were as sensible and strong. Like the pack of freshmen yearning to be football players’ playthings. Or her best friend, whose crappy judgment nearly ruined her life. But being sensible and strong isn’t easy. Not when Natalie nearly gets expelled anyway. Not when her advice hurts more than it helps. Not when a boy she once dismissed becomes the boy she can’t stop thinking about. The line between good and bad has gone fuzzy, and crossing it could end in disaster . . . or become the best choice she’ll ever make.

I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down once I started it – it was so addicting. I didn’t really like Natalie’s character much; however, the plot made up for that. I would’ve really loved to see more of Connor….I feel like his character was too underrated.

Until my next post,

Book Review: “Dirty Billionaire” by Meghan March

Hi everyone!

I got this ebook free off of iBooks.

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends. Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99% of women on going home with me. Do I sound like an asshole to you? That’s because I am. And guess what? It works for me just fine. Or at least it did. Until I met her. Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm. Only one problem. She didn’t leave her name or number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life. Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy—the sweetest, rarest of all pussy—and I need it again. So what’s an asshole to do? I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral. And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a really great read.

This book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

Until my next post,

Stephanie

Book Review: “Because of Him” by Jessica Roe

Hey everybody!

So, I got this ebook free off of iBooks.

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

Blair Ackerman is a girl with crazy hair and a bad attitude. She’s a girl who doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. She’s a girl with only a duffel bag and a car named Nancy to her name, and that’s okay by her. She’s tough because she has to be. Nobody gets inside her head, nobody gets inside her heart. Silver is everything she’s never wanted. He’s a good guy, a smart guy, a guy who’s never met a girl like her before. He’s the kind of guy who loves history, who laughs at his own jokes, who kisses like a sinful dream. He’s the kind of guy who might just break down her walls and get inside her heart and make her feel. Too bad he’s forbidden. Because when Blair’s mom dies and she’s sent to live with the father she’s never met and a family that doesn’t want her, Blair and Silver cross paths in ways they never could have imagined, and they discover that even though they know they should, they can’t quite bring themselves to stay apart. Opposites really do attract. 

I actually really liked this book. Every single word kept me on my toes. It was a really wonderful read!

This book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 15.

Until my next post,

Stephanie
