Tales of a Tomboy: Britain (Tales of a Tomboy, #1) by Evan Grace [arc review]

*adult content*


This book took me by surprise in so many different ways. There were things on it that usually make me turn down a book and yet all of it was written so well I just loved it! 

The Blurb:

I have two rules no dates and no spending the night.
I don’t have time to manage all the complications that come with relationships. And I sure as hell have no desire for any kind of commitment. 
My life is fairly uncomplicated, exactly the way I want it...until complicated literally stumbles my way. Britain Lancaster. Clumsy, plain, inexperienced, and the type of woman I tend to avoid.
Unfortunately for me the universe seems to put her on my path around every corner, forcing me to notice her. To look at her. To really...see her. 
Pretty soon the universe no longer has to go through all the trouble sending her my way since I find myself looking for her, wanting to get to know her. And the more time I spend with her the more I realize that she’s everything I’m not.
Pure, beautiful, innocent...corruptible.
Now I can’t get her out of my head. I want her in ways that could ruin her, taint her, break her, and I can only hope she’s strong enough to survive this.
To survive me.

The Review: 4.5 Stars


I was expecting Silas to be a total ass. So so so wrong. He was the most caring and loving guy and absolutely perfect for Britain. Yes, he made mistakes, but he realized he was wrong fast enough and fixed it fast enough too. I just adored him.
One of the things I am really not into and don't like reading about is BDSM, so when I realized that was Sila's thing I was petrified that would be the end of the book for me. But Evan Grave managed to write those scenes with a lot of care and she never made any of them hardcore BDSM. So although I still did not enjoy those, I was not put off by it either. 

Britain was a great character as well. She is the perfect description of a Tomboy but she is also this really innocent and loving girl and you can't help but want to cuddle with her. No wonder Silas falls for her. 
Britain's story is not the happiest, but it is not the saddest either. She has an amazing family and loves what she does. However, an event from her past keeps her from having relationships.

I loved how Britain and Silas grew to know each other and how much they changed for each other too. It was a perfect love story!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching

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.
