Tug Of War by K. Larson (ARC Review By Rach)

Tug of War 72

***Review From Rach  For The Nerd Girl Page***

**I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

 

‘Everything turns to crap and its all my fault’

Clara Lord is the owner of Bloodlines tattoo parlour. Straight away you meet this crazy lady. You will love her, hate her, want to punch her, shake her and cuddle her.

Dominic Napoli is a relentless suit wearing, real estate mogul and absolutely gorgeous guy, who is intrigued by Clara.

Sawyer is a hot looking bad boy who isn’t really bad at all he’s 6ft 2 with muscles tattoos and piercings, did I mention he’s gorgeous too? Sawyer loves Clara and you see this from the beginning. These are 3 of the main characters, I don’t want to tell you about them all as I don’t want to ruin any surprises along the way.

This book is amazing! The characters are so real you read the words and the movie plays in your head. I went through many emotions with the characters, I was never bored and never scanned through any of it. Reading this I expect you think it’s a love triangle but its more like an… Continue reading

Arielle: Immortal Awakening (Immortal Rapture #1) (Review By Jessica)

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000031_00005]

**Review From Jessica For The Nerd Girl Page***

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

The overall idea for this book was a good one. I was excited to start reading, but once I did all I was left with was a feeling of confusion. I feel the author tried to put way too many elements into the story. The plot went in too many directions, too many times and those twists never really got resolved. I felt the pace of the story was slow and I also felt like I was wandering willy nilly through the story with no real purpose. There were more than a few times where the storyline changed completely and none of those changes really held my interest. I was quite often left wondering where the story was going but finding I didn’t really care. I found myself not really liking Arielle. She seemed silly, a little shallow and quite a few times I found myself literally rolling my eyes at her. I felt the interactions between Arielle and her 2 best friends were very “school girlish,” and her relationship with Sebastian quite juvenile. I… Continue reading

***Review From Amy Conley For The Nerd Girl Page***

* Book Was Given  In Exchange For An Honest Review*

Love to the chords of a classic jazz band…
From the first time Lorraine, a plucky and competitive girl, contends on the playground against Isaiah, an impish boy whose smile gleams in more ways than one, the two of them can’t help knowing each other. Neither can they avoid passions and misfortunes lining the path to young adulthood, and when the breakup of Isaiah’s family disrupts the haven he’s shared with Lorraine, their natural relationship is eventually threatened by jealousy, grave trauma, and abandonment. As one year follows another, and another, what might it take to reunite these two companions in love: love undeniably real and unbounded by time?

My Review:
A beautiful story that will bring you to tears. The character’s take you on such an amazing journey with every new page you get to witness the discovery of friendships, first love, separation, trauma and finding their way back to each other again.
I love the feeling I got while reading this book I felt so connected and compelled like nothing was more important than reading about the character’s… Continue reading

I was given a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Synopsis:

Spell Bound College senior Grace is half witch, half mortal, and one of the most powerful supernatural beings in existence. Problem is she doesn’t know any of this yet.

Saxon by Chantal Fernando

COMING JANUARY 2014

Blurb

Some men won’t take no for an answer.
And some women might find this flattering, being asked out over and over again by a man determined to have you. But not me.
Not that the man in question isn’t sexy as sin, funny as hell and charming as they get.
Because he is.

Sometimes you just can’t allow yourself to be interested in someone for other reasons, other variables.
This is one of those times.
Saxon Tate is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend.
He cheated on her.
He could possibly cheat again.
That’s three strikes.

He’s out.

Blurb –

Losing my best friend was the worst feeling in the world. I always wondered what she was doing and how she was doing but I never went after her. I never took the time to find out how she was doing and that broke my heart into a million pieces. Not only did I lose my best friend but I lost the love of my life.

Now, four years later, I am back in North Carolina and find myself longing to see her smile and feel her touch.

One day, she finally sees me and our eyes connect. The connection is still there. She can still make me weak at the knees and she still holds my heart and soul.

Things are different. She is dating my teammate Kyle and I hate him. Not for dating my Sophia but for being the worst person imaginable. But I vow to make her mine again. Welcome to my mind and life. My story about finally seeing Sophia again and how I will always be holding onto her.

Minus One: The Drew Smith Series by Norwood Holland (Review By Julie)

17339253

***Review By Julie From The Nerd Girl Page***

***I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.***

Minus One by Norwood Holland is the prequel to the established series about attorney Drew Smith. I found the pace of the book to be slow enough that I had a hard time getting into the story and sticking with it. It was difficult to accept the premise of the main characters’ relationship. Judging by the discussion questions at the end of the book, I am not alone in what I found unbelievable or unlikable.

If I could award half-stars, I would probably give this book 2.5 stars.

The story was fine, the writing was good, and I imagine that if you are already a fan of the Drew Smith series, you will enjoy reading about his start as an attorney. The book has all the drug-filled sex-escapades you would expect in a book set in the 1980s as well as all some of the painful lessons from that era.

Review – The Bionics (Bionics, #1) by Alicia Michaels V””V

16075650

Melanie here aka VampireLovingDork  back  with my review of  The Bionics  which was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Well what can I say? It is great to see some NA authors tackling sci fi and doing it in such an amazing way. I love the idea that the government came up with the technology to save people and then decided they were so frightened by their own scientific development that they felt they had to eradicate a whole race.

 My only complaint  would be that it was too short and has that pesky cliffhanger ending that authors like to throw around lately (which in this case wasn’t too bad for me as I had book 2 ready to go).  I wonder if perhaps the subject matter is so good that this series of Novella’s wouldn’t be better put together as a novel as the pages certainly flew by.

Definitely for older teen / adults  for the language content.

Hush: The Naughty Librarian by Penelope L’Amoreaux (Review By Rach)

18334313

***Review From Rach  For The Nerd Girl Page***

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

 

Single Brianne preferred nights alone with her books in the university library .

  • Brianne catches two freshman being rather naughty amongst the books, which turns her on.

    Great description here , it ended with Brianne making them aware she was there so they left .

    Brianne then comes across Josh , graduate student in his late twenties working late , he asks what he can do for her ? But then asks her for shoulder rub. I didn’t like the way Josh was so forward with Brianne . He would have annoyed me but she was attracted to him.

    The next part was Josh being very dominating and while it was very descriptive I found myself skimming through . I was hoping the freshmen from earlier in the story would surface .

    The book left me a bit flat but this was personal preference as I wanted more.

    It’s a very descriptive short erotic story , well written just not enough ommmmphhhh in it for me .
