Bad Idea by Nicole French 5* Book Review

Bad Idea Ebook Cover

From the second she saw him, Layla Barros knew Nico Soltero was all wrong. Wrong age. Wrong education. Wrong job. Wrong everything. She had a hard enough time convincing her parents that New York really is the right place for their nineteen-year-old daughter without telling them she’s got a thing for the FedEx guy at her new part-time job. Too bad the second she saw him, Layla Barros no longer cared about right and wrong. 

You know that feeling that you get when your heart breaks?

Your chest gets tight and there’s a lump in your throat that feels like your heart has just made its way from your ribcage to your oesophagus?

How? How does Nicole French make me experience every single visceral reaction right along with Layla and Nico? I feel shattered, torn and also in love with Nico…

I write this review from tear-stained eyes, completely and utterly wrung out from the emotional journey of this novel and YET! I’m going to read it again and count down every day until the sequel comes out.

I may be a masochist, but French writes so beautifully. Nico and Layla’s story is the first love, the one that got away, the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks and the show-stopping true love of meeting ‘the one’ all wrapped up in one novel that has left me in itty bitty pieces.

French tackles social/political/cultural and woman’s issues in a way that leaves no stone unturned. Coupled with her Spitfire series, no trope is typical. No story goes the way that you expect it to go. There are no clichés, and French WILL rip out your heart.

I loved Layla, with her immaturity and already hardened shell but I fell in LOVE with Nico. The man who treasures her, calls her Sweetie and only wants the best for her (but can still f**k like an animal. Damn.) I’ve gone mad and I’ll never look at a FEDex man the same way again.

French has done it again.

Fair Game by Monica Murphy (Rules – Book 1) 4/5

download (8)Buy on amazon here:

“It’s bad enough Jade Frost’s boyfriend dragged her to a boring poker game. It’s even worse that he actually threw her into the betting pot during an intense round — and lost. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend. Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn’t stop him. Her horrible behaviour seems to make him want her more. When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade’s confused. There’s more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. No way could he want a serious relationship with her — or could he?”

Fair Game is a brilliant romantic comedy, pitting self-proclaimed ‘Bitch Face’ Jade against Rich boy Shep. I am glad that it is a series because the chemistry between the two main characters is palpable, although I felt like it needed a little bit more drama (hence why only four stars) I am excited for the rest of this series. Unique, quirky and thought provoking about some of the hardships of wealth; I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

New look! Legally Yours by Nicole French – Cover Reveal

For anyone that’s interested, you can read my original review of Legally Yours here!

As I wait patiently for the sequel to Legally Yours (Titled ‘Legally Mine’) let me get you all excited with the new look cover re-design for the Spitfire series! I absolutely love it and just had to share it with all of you.

After reading the first chapter exert on Nicole French’s website, I am so desperate for the sequel to this series and the continuation of Brandon and Skylar’s story. The first book ended on such a revelation that it feels like torture to have to wait.

I am so happy that Nicole French chose one of my review quotes for the cover of her book, and it means the world to me to be able to connect and share the work of such an amazing writer.

If you haven’t checked out the book yet, it’s available on amazon here.

Review: Catching Carly by Emma Hart 4/5

33514283

Buy on amazon here:

“My name is Carly Porter… And I’m really good at bad decisions.

How do I know this, exactly? Well, not including the time I accidentally bleached my eyebrows or sprained my ankle changing a lightbulb…
I had sex with my best friend’s brother.
Zeke Elliott has been a thorn in my side for eleven years. A very sexy, very tempting, very freaking annoying one. With big…hands.
And now my clitoris has a crush on the guy.
Seriously. I can’t look at him without my vagina performing accidental kegels. Which would be fine, but he’s Cain’s brother. I hate him. He’s off limits, right?
Right.”

Being Brooke was an eye opening and mental experience. I feel guilty that I couldn’t give this book the five out of five that Emma Hart’s insightful, awkward, and hilarious inner monologues deserve. The relationship between the main couple were brilliant but a bit stilted, there wasn’t much tension apart from the hovering spectre of the ex ‘Becky’, but she didn’t actually appear once.

Despite the lack of tension and … dare I say, plot, the characters of Carly and Brooke make up for any of that and meant that I left the final page of this book happy with the outcome.

I thoroughly enjoy Emma Hart’s Barley Cross characters, and cannot wait to see where this goes next.

4/5

Dreamy Book Covers Tag

screen-shot-2017-03-30-at-8-59-50-am.pngTagged by Kayla @ KdrewTheBookWorm
Image and Book tag created by Tiana @ The Book Raven

I love a good book tag! This one was a bit of a challenge, but here are my selects!

“No ideas by in Things”

A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it:

Getting Wilde: Immortal Vegas, Book 1

30980008

This cover does exactly what is says on the tin, supernatural action and adventure with lots of tarot cards. This is such a brilliant series, and the tension between Sara and the Magician is palpable. The first book is available on amazon, for free, here:

 

“Dark and Lovely”

A book cover that is so creepalicious you want to eat it up:

Unbeautiful by Jessica Sorensen

The scariest part of this book is the fact that mental illness strikes even the strongest and prettiest of us.

unbeautiful.jpg

 

“Sugary Sweet”

A cute cover that is so fluffy you want to give it a hug:

Adorkable by Cookie O’Gorman

download (6)

I couldn’t believe this book was this author’s debut. Witty, funny and cute as hell. Just as a YA romantic comedy should be.

 

“The Simple Aesthetic”

a book cover that stuns with the most simplistic of design

Paper Princess by Erin Watt

The-Royals-Paper-Princess-cover-Erin-Watt-Elle-Kennedy-Jen-Frederick.jpg

 

“Cover envy”

A cover you wish you had on your shelves yet but don’t yet

A Court of Wings and Ruin (Can’t wait until the 2nd of May!)

23766634

I have booked the day off work for when this book comes out. I have been waiting with baited breath since Mist and Fury came out. I am so excited to see my favourite OTP again, I can’t even.

 

“Travelling abroad”

A beautiful book cover featuring a country outside of your own

Gifted Thief by Helen Harper

26794855.jpg

Although I live in England, and this series is set in Scotland I think it counts! I honestly could find a book that I loved as much as this one that also had a cover with a location on the front. Integrity is one of my favourite heroines, with an addiction to pink and an attitude that could knock even the biggest alpha on their butt.

 

“The Colour Wheel!”

A cover that showcases one of your favourite colours

The Wilds by Donna Augustine

26193300

Green, glorious green. Set in the the forest, in a dystopian world taken over by beasts. This series is addictive, and the slow burn of the main love interest leaves you with deep feels.

 

“Switching gears”

A cover change you absolutely adore

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Such a modern classic.

“Oldie by a goodie”

A favourite cover of your favourite classic

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

41Akk9Z302L._SX315_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

 

This is one of my all time favourites. And, yes, I am aware that I shout ‘favourite’ and ‘recommend’ like it’s going out of fashion but this novel changed my life. It encouraged me to write The Bleeders and not to white wash over my own, and my characters mental illnesses.

 

“And the winner is…”

Which cover mentioned above is your favourite?

23766634

 

A Court of Wings and Ruin, just because…

 

I tag…

Candace @ Book Addict Haven

Kristi @ YAandWine

You are under no obligation to do the tag, but I think this one is such a brilliant one that I had to give it ago.

Let me know what you think of the covers, and if there are any books you would recommend based on my selections! I’d love to hear from you.
