Beautiful Bastart by Christina Lauren - 5/5 stars

OMG! I was still laughing and having giggle fits from this book hours and hours after I finished it. It was phenomenal.

“You realize early in life that beauty is only skin-deep and, ugly goes straight to the bone” 

This was steamy and hilarious. The main characters, Chloe and Bennett start of hating each other. Truly madly deeply hating each other! Their interactions are nothing short of comical. Even the steamy scenes are to some extend just hilarious.

Mr Bennet Ryan is an ass. The boss from nightmares. Incredibly intelligent and accomplished in his business but arrogant and full of himself. He treat his employees like garbage. And that is why she hates him. She had very good reasons too.

Now, he hates her for a  different reason. Chloe can dish out as good as she gets. And she does. She infuriates him. But what also infuriates him is that he is attracted to her. That somehow makes things worse, makes him hate her even more. He thinks he can get her out of his system if they sleep together just once. He is wrong of-course. That doesn't help at all. Once the deed is done he thinks of her even more and hates her even more for it.

To be honest, it sounds like a silly plot to me now that I am reading my own review. But I promise you it is worth it (if you like steamy books). Although it has a lot of tension, it is also funny and rather light hearted. Perfect fast paced light hearted late night read!

The Prince of Broadway (Uptown Girls #2) by Joanna Shupe

Another masterpiece by Jonna Shupe! I loved every second of this book and I am already a third into the next book in the Uptown Girls  series.

The Gilded Ones (Deathless #1) by Namina Forna

There was a time where I loved nothing more than a good YA fantasy. I guess that time is passed... either that or the quality of YA books coming out has fallen. This wasn't a bad book, it just was underwhelming . It has a very good concept, a good start, a good climax point, but everything else felt flat. Deka leaves in fear of the Blood Ceremony Day- the day she finds out if her blood runs pure (red) or if she has gold blood, which is met with a death sentence. Needless to say, her blood runs gold. She is killed again and again just to wake, limbs reattaching themselves... It is a gory and interesting start. I was intrigued as to what she was and where this was going.  Someone from the capital comes an offers her a deal: fight for the emperor with other girls like her or stay at the village being killed until someone figures out how to give her her true death. Let's face it, it is an easy choice.  The book celebrates female friendships, sisterhood! Families from circumstance a

The Edge of Falling by Rebecca Serle [ALC Review]

  In Five Years by Rebecca Serle was easily one of my favorite reads last year and I was very excited to read this book by her. I am not 100% sure what the exactly release date was but I think the print book was released in 2014 and Simon and Schuster picked up in audio format this year. It was released (re-released?) February 2nd. I listened to this beauty on libro.fm pretty much in one sitting.  The Blurb: Sorrow can be seductive—but can hope triumph over heartbreak? A dark and searing novel from the  New York Times  bestselling author of   In Five Years . Caggie never wanted to be a hero, but some things are decided for us. Growing up among Manhattan’s social elite, Caggie always had everything a girl could want, including a storied last name. But after saving a girl from the brink of suicide, Caggie becomes infamous, and now all she wants is to be left alone.
