Faking It (Losing it #2) by Cora Carmack- 5/5 Stars

Faking It, Cora Carmack
Hello Sunnies 🌞
Faking it was a LOT better than Losing it. Losing it was good, I gave a 4 star rating after all, but Faking it was a perfect HEA. 

It stars off with Cade, Bliss's best friend from Losing it. I really liked him in the first book and although this is a stand alone I do believe the book was as good as it was because we already knew so much about Cade. It helped made the story more rounded.
Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and do his master's degree. But he misses Bliss, still aches for her. On top of that his acting career is not really going anywhere. 

Max is a crazy girl full of tattoos, piercings, and an angry yet bright personality. She is a struggling musician hiding her true self from her parents in Philadelphia. They have no idea of the kind of life she leaves and most certainly never got to see the art in her body, they don't even know she has them.

Max and Cade meet at a coffee shop. Her parents call and tell her they are in town and would love to meet her perfect boyfriend, not a guy called Mace with a neck tattoo that drinks too much, plays in a band, and has a terrible personality. So she asks Cade to step in and fake a relationship with her for two days. Perfect Cade wins over her parents and for a number of reasons (not gonna spoil it for you all) they keep the ruse going after those two days.

I loved that we had a 'good' guy and a 'bad' girl. It is so often the opposite in NA.  That was refreshing. The dual POV was also fun, it gives the reader a look into both their minds and hearts.
The story is also about grief and acceptance, not just a love. And in the end, I think that is what made it extra special.

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Crow and Reaper by A. Zavarelli (Boston Underworld #1 and #2)

Crow and Reaper by A. Zavarelli (Boston Underworld #1 and #2) @glimpses_of_my_books These books are (to me at least) two VERY different books and the reason you should never give up on an author after just one book. I did not like Crow  one tiny bit. But I absolutely loved Reaper . One is a 1 star, while the other is a 4...  Let's start with the good first, Reaper . Ronan is likely to break your heart. Throughout the book we get snippets of his past, accounts of everything he had to go through before Crow and his mother find him and save him from the horrible life he was leaving. In a way, although I wasn't a fun of Crow in the first book, his love and care for Ronan had made me like him a little better. Ronan is not quiet, moody, and broody by choice. It is a consequence of all the things he has been through, the things I mentioned above that will break your heart... He is caring and loving, but he has no idea how to put those things in action. He is, in a way, one of the mos

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
