Convict (Unfit Hero #1) by Hayley Faiman

Convict, Hayley Faiman

This was my very first read by Hayley Faiman and it will most certainly not be the last. I am actually happy to say I own two more of her books already and can get started on it straight away.

The book was 100% not what I was expecting. I knew little of her writing style or the series going into it besides the cover and the blurb. Both of which, to me, make Convict sounds like a dark romance. That is not what this is at all. It is passionate, suspenseful, and the main characters backgrounds is a little dark. But it is not a dark romance. It is really really sweet. Rylan and Channing are perfect for each other in every way. 

Blurb:

Guilty. ExCon. Felon. Prisoner. Criminal.

Words that now represent me.
Words that keep any decent person away from me.

I never gave much thought to words before now.

Slut. Hussy. Whore. Homewrecker. Jezebel.

Words that now reflect me.
Words that will stay indefinitely.

The evidence of those words grow inside of me.

Those Words make the entire town assume they are vindicated to use them.
I am wrong.
They are right.

I do think that because of the insta love this is not going to be for everyone, and usually I only like insta love in my paranormal romances, but it was ok here. The story would have dragged without it. Rylan and Channing make sense. Their pasts fit, their present fits. 

Both made some very bad choices in their past with terrible consequences. He has paid for his, even tough he does not believe he has. She is paying for hers. Their story is unconventional, different, and so very touching.

All secondary characters were engaging and interesting as well. I am so very glad I have the next book because I think Wyatt's story is going to be just as touching.

Highly recommend this one!

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

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 fiancĂ© 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

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
