WWW WednesdayHey guys! Look what I found! A weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading blog here on WordPress.

Lots of new author reads in the past few weeks and I’m sure there are more to come.


• What are you currently reading?

The synopsis of this book gave me a different impression of what the characters roles and personality types are. I don’t know how I feel about that. Review to come. Don’t look too closely at the cover though, it’s not that great once you really look.

 

 

 

Make It CountMake it right• What did you recently finish reading? 

I’ll have to write a review about these books. I’ve never read anything by Megan Erickson before, didn’t know what to expect but I really enjoyed these books. A lot.

 

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I like when MC’s go after one person all the while the person they should be with is the one helping them get the “guy/girl.” It’s so much like real life.

REVIEW: Before I Break

 Out of the past six years of my life, I only remember about half of it. After a dozen doctors and thousands in medical bills, I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder–one that causes me to lose track of time. Sometimes it’s hours, days or even weeks with no recollection of anything. The good thing is it’s been almost two years since I had my last ‘black out’. It sounds much better than what the doctors refer to them as, ‘episodes’, like my life is a freakin’ comedy.

During those two years of normal, I finally managed to get my Bachelor’s degree, a job I love, and I’ve just proposed to a woman who has been there for me through it all. For the first time in a long time everything is on track.

Until a strange woman shows up at my door—she says I’m her husband and I think she’s crazy. Until, I get a voice mail on my phone. It’s from a guy name Cal. The weird part is, it’s the same name the strange woman called me. What terrifies me, is this guy Cal…his voice sounds just like mine.

Published: September 5th 2014

Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Source: Goodreads

Thoughts: *ARC given to me for an honest review.

Okay so I had to read the synopsis of the second book before writing my review because as far as a side note/in-between book goes, it was well done. I just had to make sure that that was what it was, I thought there would be more and was slightly disappointed that there wasn’t.

For those who don’t know this book focuses on Chris’s POV for the second half on If I Break, a couple of days before Caylen’s birthday up to when Lauren shows up at his door all batshit crazy and whatnot.

SPOILERS IN PLAIN SIGHT – If you’ve read the first book then you’re good, if not, what are you doing? Turn around!

I loved being in Chris’s head, seeing Chris’s side of things, and those instances where Cal popped up (leaving that snide message (hilarious), the little twinkle in his eye that Lauren sees when Chris meets his daughter for the first time? Genius. I was like “I remember that instance from ‘If I Break'” seeing how that affected Chris however briefly was insightful and I liked it.

Since this book was a half-way point to the second in the series, it was short which is a good thing, bad for me since I was really hoping to see what happens next, you know after the crazy Lauren debacle but this was better, we got a closer look into DID, Chris’s reactions and emotions and a better less crazy look at Lauren. I still think she’s stupid for blindly marrying and having a child with someone who obviously kept secrets from her and she didn’t push him but she doesn’t come off that way in Chris’s version of things, somehow someway she has (insinuated at least) that she has a deeper connection with Cal than we’re led to believe.

The thing that knocked me back the most, Lauren is an artist? Either I don’t remember that in the first book because she just dropped everything to be a housewife or it was so insignificant then that her inability to do anything with her time when Cal is gone blinded me from the fact that she did finish school and did get a degree in something she’s just not putting it to use and then she gets pregnant so what’s the point right? Either way, I went through the rest of ‘If I Break’ thinking Lauren was a useless whiny woman, but now my perception of her has changed, a little, I am nervous to see her POV in ‘Almost Broken’ though.

Prediction: I predict that Cal and Chris will be integrated as one.

All in all, it was a good addition to the first book. The only problems with it, spelling, grammar, and that portion of Crestfield whatever not that I skipped over and didn’t feel like was important but who knows maybe I’ll realize the error of my ways come the second book.

Last Line: “By the way. The suggestion that you give Cal’s life a try. Mine. Not his,” he says and just like that he’s gone.

• What are you currently reading?

Well this is different, I haven’t read anything by Regina Cole, I don’t think. (I haven’t) so this is bound to be an interesting read, new author in the mix and all.

 

 

• What did you recently finish reading? 

Oh Man, “Fall To You” and “All For This” (which I just jumped into btw) was so good because of all the drama! I mean any normal sane person would hate or begrudge Hanna her tug of war between two men but you just couldn’t. Not gonna lie, I felt kind of above and detached from it all, I think that was the only way I could get through the series without feeling all the pent-up emotions one experiences when watching ‘Days of Our Lives.’ Is that show still on?

 

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I read Portia Moore’s last book “If I Break” when she had asked me to read and review it for her, it was a good book and the plot twist was so different and unexpected that it kind of made up for everything else that was missing. So when I was asked to read and review the second in the series I couldn’t turn it down. I want to know his side of things.

Teaser Tuesday #20

Teaser TuesdayTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

 

 

 

Fall To You 

Torn between two men…

When I woke up after the accident, I couldn’t remember anything from the last year—including my relationship with Max Hallowell or anything about Nate Crane. Now my memories are returning, but instead of answering my questions, they’re leaving me with more.

The man who broke my heart and wants to be my future…

Max is all I ever wanted, and now he wants to marry me. He’ll do everything he can to fill my life with love, family, and security. I need those things now more than ever. But can I trust him?

The man who stole my heart and wants to let me go…

Nate never made me promises, and I never asked him to. I’d been on the rebound, looking for a distraction, and he made me feel beautiful and wanted when I needed to feel those things most. He says he has to let me go, but what if I can’t let go of him?

With every revelation and every passing day, I feel more like Alice down the rabbit hole. I’m falling. Who will catch me?

Fall to You is the second book in the Here and Now series. It is not a stand-alone and is intended to be read following Lost in Me. Hanna’s story concludes in book three, All for This.

Teaser Excerpt:

 ” Someone’s screwing with me. They switched my blood work or something.”

“That only happens in the movies.”

“Well, virgins only get pregnant in the Bible, so…”

She studies me for a beat  “Are you sure you’re still a virgin?”

“I haven’t slept with Max and I haven’t slept with Nate, so unless I’m an even bigger ho-bag than I thought and there’s a third guy I’m not remembering”–I meet her eyes and speak slowly so she understands–“I. Am. Not. Pregnant.”

 

 

I hope you read the synopsis but if you didn’t; Hanna is speaking to her Doctor/friend Nix. She was in an accident and is suffering from amnesia, she was waiting till marriage to have sex, which explains the question of her virginity.

She remembers squat! Interesting right?!

Happy Reading, Hope you enjoyed today’s teaser! :)

• What are you currently reading?

The Addicted series continues! This one is interesting because the events of the last two Calloway sister books crossover into this one. Check out Kiss the Sky (Rose and Connors story) Hothouse Flower (Daisy and Rykes) before reading this one. Also a read the first book Addicted to You, review here.

 

 

• What did you recently finish reading? 

A continuation of the Record series by K.A. Linde, this one just came out Aug 26 and I must say its a heck of a lot better than the first book and where I was sort of kinda looking forward to this book, I’m looking forward to the next one more.

 

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

i enjoyed the one and only book by Lauren Blakely that I read which was Trophy Husband (review) and although it was third in the series I didn’t need to read the others. So I figured I’d venture into a whole new series by her and do it right this time, starting with book one :)

 

 

It’s been a while, so tell me,
