I came across this book on my Facebook news feed and after reading the blurb, I knew I had to read it.
CASS: I always remember Scarlett as the one night stand that got away from me. I fell in love; she took off. It feels like a lifetime ago now though. I traded in my guitar for a needle, working at St. Skin, bringing other people’s stories to life through tattoos. Though I still think about her, I know I’ll never see her again. But I never knew that after she left our one night, she left pregnant. She never told me. I only find out when her best friend comes crashing into my life and my heart with a baby in her arms – my daughter. With my life turned upside down, I struggle to figure out what it all means: being a father, and finding a new love growing in the place reserved for the woman I lost but thought of as my forever love. It feels crazy – and wrong – but I don’t care.
DIEM: A car accident takes my best friend’s life and now I’m raising her baby. I’ve fought hard to do everything to keep Paisley as my own, but I know her father is out there and he deserves to know the truth. The last thing I expect to find is the sexiest man I’ve ever met – complete with muscle, tattoos, and an attitude to match. I’m not going to force him to be a father and I’m certainly not going to force him to get close to me. But I need the help. Meeting Cass was supposed to make life easier. As I fall for him, I realise everything is becoming more complicated.
This is the first book in the St. Skin series and after reading this I can’t wait.
I loved how it was told from both Cass and Diems’ perspectives and also how it flicked between past and present. Unlike some books it was easy to understand when in the timeline we were.
The characters were easy to get to know and were very likeable.
At times it had me in tears which I wasn’t expecting but I fully enjoyed every second of the story. There were some bits I could guess and others which were really unexpected.
A really easy and enjoyable read.
Let me know what you all thought when you’ve had a chance to read it.
Hi, So I’ve not been reading much lately as been ill and my concentration hasn’t been brill due to long term illnesses.
But the other day while out I grabbed a copy of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. Partly as it’s been on my to get list for ages, and partly because I had to wait while my mum had a mri and I’d forgotten to grab a book as we left the house.
Maddy is a 17 year old girl who is allergic to the world, Olly is the boy next door.
Can love conquer illness?
This is Nicola’s debut novel and after reading it I really want to read her next one “The sun is also a star”
Everything, Everything had me laughing, grinning my head of and at times crying my eyes out. It’s a very easy read, brilliant when you don’t want to have to concentrate hard on remembering a story line or millions of characters.
Definetly a great read, I’d give it a 4/5. It’s also now out as a film but after how wrecked the book had me at times I think I’ll wait for it to come out on dvd!

Let me know what you all think of it.
So this review is about a book that’s pretty special to me.
It came out on the 13th of July and is the first book I have officially proof read, it even has my name in it… twice!
Thunder rattles high is the 3rd and last book in the unweaving trilogy by Sarah K L Wilson. It’s where we follow Tylira right to the end of her journey and where we find out if she can save her world or if she can’t. It’s incredibly well written, has heart warming moments as well as tear jerking ones and also has ones that make you want to reach for your (metaphorical) sword and join in.
If you’ve read the first 2 in the series you really need to read this, in fact if you haven’t read the first 2 you need to go read them so that you can read this (definitely read the others first as this starts exactly where Lightening Strikes Twice left off and won’t make any sense if you try it as a stand alone).
A little Easter Egg from the Author…. If you look at all 3 covers we’ve slowly zooming in on Tylira’s face. Want to find out other awesome stuff about her books? Join us over at her Blackwatch and Beyond group on Facebook (I’m an admin there) and you’ll get to join in loads of fun things including live videos with Sarah herself!

Sorry it’s been a little while since I posted. This is due to a combo of brain fog with my ME as well as reading some bits I couldn’t do a review about as not due out till end of the month and October etc etc. (Plus I will admit I saw supernatural for the first time the other day and have already binged watched up to the end of season 2!)
So just before the brain fog kicked in I read the first of the Players of Marycliff books by Jerica Macmillan.
I have now read books 2, 2.5, 3 and 4!
2 – Convenient Fall and this follows the story of Chris and Megan
2.5 – Opening Hearts ( where Matt meets Hannah) – this is free if you sign up to Jerica’s newsletter
3 – Managed Hearts – this follows on from Matt and Hannah
4 – Unsaid things – we revisit Abby and Lance
As with all the books in this series you can read them as stand alone novels.
I really enjoyed these and do recommend them to anyone that wants a bit of hot romance. They are all well written and the sex scenes don’t leave you cringing or reaching for the sick bucket unlike some I’ve read before!
On this link you can find all her books. Definetly worth a read and I’m sure I’ll read books 5 and 6 in the series soon too!

Think there’s a book I should read and review?
Contact me and let me know
Bit of a change from the books I usually blog about.
Summer Fling is book one of the “Players of Marycliff University”. Each book can be read as a stand alone or read as a series.
I came across it on Facebook advertised by the author (Jerica Macmillan) as a freebie, and once I’d read the extract Jerica shared from it I decided I had to read it.
“Why do you keep asking me out anyway? You’re Lance Kane, right?”
His smile faded, and his expression turned a little wary. “Yeah. I’m Lance Kane. Why do you think I keep asking you out? I told you I like spending time with you. Why else would I ask you out?”
Abby leaned forward now, pressing her point. “But Lance Kane doesn’t go out with a girl more than twice.” She motioned with her finger back and forth between them. “What’s the deal here, then? If you’re calling this a date, that makes three.”
Abby is a Spanish major who meets Lance a football player who’s just graduated at a party. Lance is a serial dater 2 dates tops and then he moves on. Abby doesn’t tend to date or party.
Opposites attract or so they say.
I fell in love with Abby and Lance, the more they learnt about each other the more in love with the book I fell (So happy to find that I can revisit them in book 4!)
A real feel good romance. So good that I’m currently reading the second book!
This is the first book of Jerica’s that I’ve read and would highly recommend her to anyone that likes romance or just a good sexy book.
Does anyone have any recommendations for me? or Any books you’d like me to review? Leave me a comment or send me a message via my contact form.
So I got given the chance to read Steal the sun by Stephanie Kelley.
I’d never heard of her before so was eager to give her a go, and wow! I am so glad I did!
The cover isn’t one that would usually draw me in, but they do say don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
Kodiak Sesi is a hunter… not the type that hunts game… She and her brothers hunt “others” these are creatures such as vampires and werewolves but also include shifters such as selkies/mermen etc. (Have you seen Grimm? Think of wesen and how they can woge).
Intrigued? So was I!
Steal the sun follows Koda and her brothers as they hunt others and try to find out who’s been committing a series of murders around their Alaskan home.
I absolutely love this book and fell in love with it within the first sentence. Kodiak and Rhen are such powerful characters and the mystery of their back story kept me up and reading all throw the night!
I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and fantasy as well as fans of Grimm and probably Supernatural (sorry never seen and episode!)
Definitely a 5 star read!
In the words of Oliver “Please sir can I have some more?”
If you only do one thing tonight, get your hands on a copy and read!
Sorry for such a long gap since my last post, I’m currently busy reading an unedited ARC of The City of Vikings by Farah Cook so have been making lots of notes to email her.
Because of this I thought I’d do a post about a book I read earlier this year.
The dead list by Jennifer L Armentrout.
On the way home from a party Ella is attacked, she manages to get away…. But then things start to appear. A clown mask on her bed, a dead bird in her locker.
Why is she being targeted and is she the only one?
From the start this book grasped me around the neck and yanked me into it’s pages. I loved the story line from start to finish and I didn’t manage to guess the killer which for me is a huge deal as 9 times out of 10 I’ve worked it out before the author tells us who it is.
If you’ve read one of her books before, like me you’ll know you’re in for a treat. If you haven’t then this is a brilliant chance to sample her work.
