All-Time Favorite Read

Top Read of 2020

 

Oh my stars….WHAT A BOOK!!!! Hands down, this is my favorite read so far of 2020!!!!

“Xan and I will never change. I’ll always be his Green, and he’ll always be my knight.”

I love a book that can make me laugh, cry, and want to throw my Ipad across the room!!!! This one did all of that and more! The synopsis doesn’t even scratch the surface of how fantastic it is!!!

Kimberly aka Green to Xander is just waiting to get her senior year over with. She wants away from her mother and the bullies at school, especially Xander. He once was her best friend whom she adored. Now, he is her enemy and there is no adoration left for him. He made sure of that throughout the years as he stomped her heart into tiny little pieces. 

Xander worshiped the ground Green walked on and would have done anything for her. They were the best of friends, and they commiserated about the “stellar mothers” they had. Yes, I’m being sarcastic. There was not one motherly bone in either one of their bodies. He can’t ever let Kimberly in his heart, so he is cruel, doing whatever he can do push her away…even while breaking her heart even more. This was a huge twist. I thought I knew why he treated her so badly, but I didn’t even come close!!!! Rina Kent rocked my world with that one! 

As you can imagine, there is a lot of angst, but there has to be in Xan’s and Green’s story. I found the flashbacks of them as children so endearing. These two were meant to be together; they were soulmates from the very beginning. Life and uncaring people came between them. Xan is no longer her knight but her nightmare. I’m so glad Kent gave us both of their POVs because I would have a hard time finding any warmth for Xander. He could be so cruel to her. So, getting inside his head, helped me understand him so much better. 

Rina Kent warned her readers in the beginning that she writes darker romances, and they aren’t for the faint of heart. She was also very accurate in warning us that this book was different, and she really dug in deep emotionally. She dealt with issues of bullying, cutting, an eating disorder, depression, and addiction issues. She broke my heart before putting it back together again. There is one scene in particular with Kimberly that tears were pouring out of my eyes. I wanted to be there holding her and reassuring her that I “saw her.” As heavy as the book could be, it is amazing to me that Kent makes something so incredibly beautiful from it too!!!! That takes real talent, and Rina Kent has tons of that!!!!

I literally stayed up all night long to finish this book, not going to bed until 4:30 AM. It was worth every single minute of sleep I lost! If you want a book to keep your attention and leave you completely at a loss of words and your heart beating wildly, this is the PERFECT READ for you!!!!

How To Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy Blog Tour with Review

HOW TO QUIT YOUR CRUSH

by Amy Fellner Dominy
Publication Date: May 4, 2020
Genres: Entangled: Crush, Teen Romance, Young Adult, Contemporary, Enemies to Lovers, Opposites Attract, Romance

SYNOPSIS

Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her – no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.

Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.

Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst date—something the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly are—wins.

Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).

Or a cooking class where they don’t even get to eat the food (her idea).

It’s all about the competition, and it’s meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn’t supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai’s future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Mai and Anthony’s story is an opposites attract romance. On the surface, these two make absolutely no sense, but for some reason they feel a pull toward one another in Amy Fellner Dominy’s teen/coming of age novel!!!

Mai knows Anthony is exactly what she doesn’t need! But, tell that to her traitorous heart!!!! If only she could listen to her mind. She is the valedictorian of her class, and she has plans to go away to college and take the world by storm with her intellect. Anthony doesn’t really have any plans…maybe travel and surf. He doesn’t need academics; he has his art. He certainly doesn’t need an uptight girl like Mai to bring undue stress to his easy-going life. 

Neither one of them can keep their mind off the other, so they brilliantly come up with the idea of terrible dates to get over whatever feelings they have for one another. Both of them are so sure it will work since they are such polar opposites. Instead, the dates aren’t so bad. In fact, they are pretty good. They begin to learn not only more about each other but about themselves. 

This is a really sweet read with some spicy, but not over the top, moments. It reminded me of what it’s like to fall in love for the first time, giving me butterflies in my stomach. Amy Fellner Dominy gave her readers a great coming of age novel that reminds you of what it was like when you were on the verge of becoming an adult and the world was yours for the taking!!!!

 Christie’s Review

5 STARS

What a fantastic read! Once I started, I couldn’t put the book down…LITERALLY!!!!

It is full of all the things I love…angst, drama, romance, and lots of chemistry!!!! Tyler and Annie are also characters that I could connect with. Their romance tugged at my heartstrings!!! It was a slow-burn yet full of heat!

Tyler lives with Annie and her family. Her father is a legendary rockstar who saw talent in Tyler, and he wants to help him have a career in the industry. He only has one request…don’t entertain any romantic thoughts about his daughter. It shouldn’t be too hard since it appears that they can’t stand one another. But, appearances can be deceiving. 

Annie and Tyler used to be friends until he broke her heart by turning his back on her. Despite the fact of who her father is, many of her classmates don’t like her, especially one girl in particular. Now, Annie hates Tyler yet she also longs for him at times. It especially gets harder when he begins doing nice things for her. 

It also seems like Tyler doesn’t harbor any feelings, negative or positive for Annie. However, he is a complicated character who hides a lot, and he is very good at it. He does see Annie as so much more than a friend, and it is getting harder to hide that fact!

This is a book that illustrates that opposites do attract! Annie is rich, and Tyler came from nothing. He wants to hide from the limelight, despite the fact that he can’t with his talent. Annie longs to be seen. She is pretty much an open book and that is the thing I liked most about her. Tyler is a master at hiding secrets and feelings! Even though they don’t have much in common, they share distrust and abandonment issues which impacts how they function both individually and as a new couple. This could be the one thing that will end up tearing them apart. 

These two just got started when the book ended, and oh my, what an ending! I can hardly stand waiting for the next book in the series. I’m looking forward to seeing what direction these two are going to take, both as individuals and a couple. I know one thing for sure, the author will make it interesting!!!!

Just Me Final

 

Lark O’Bannion learned early that life isn’t really like a fairy tale.

Parents don’t always love their children unconditionally.

Damsels are usually left to deal with their distress alone and Prince Charming rarely, if ever, comes riding to the rescue.

Happily-ever-afters are a lovely concept, but in reality are few and far between.

When Sebastian Ross rolls into her life on his Harley, with his dark beauty and inked skin, Lark is willing to admit that maybe she doesn’t know as much as she thinks she does.

Sebastian wants nothing more than to get out from under the control of his parents and their desire to force him into a mold.

Changing schools in his senior year isn’t an act of rebellion, but his attempt to take control of his life by following his own path.

One look into Lark’s emerald-green eyes and control is taken out of Bastian’s hands.

He will discover that the only path he wants to follow is the one that leads to her.

Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
