I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting (Shacking up #3) - 4 Stars [arc review]

I Flipping Love You
I Love Helena Hunting! I read Clipped Wings by her last year and got hooked. I flipping Love You has all of her usual trademarks: sweet romance, drama, sexy scenes...
I have to sadly confess though that I am very behind on her books. For example, I haven't read the other books in this series. Embarrassing I know... I am telling you this so you know that I Flipping Love You worked great as a stand alone, so if you like the blurb give it a go regardless if you have or not read the previous books. You can always go back and read the other ones later (I know I will).

Blurb:
Rian Sutter grew up with the finer things in life. Spending summers in The Hamptons was a normal occurrence for her until her parents lost everything years ago. Now Rian and her sister are getting their life, and finances, back on track through real estate. Not only do they buy and sell houses to the rich and famous, but they finally have the capital to flip their very own beachfront property. But when she inadvertently catches the attention of a sexy stranger who snaps up every house from under her, all bets are off…

Pierce Whitfield doesn’t normally demo kitchens, install dry wall, or tear apart a beautiful woman’s dreams. He’s just a down-on-his-luck lawyer who needed a break from the city and agreed to help his brother work on a few homes in the Hamptons. When he first meets Rian, the attraction is undeniable. But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks. Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance — without burning down the house?

I FLIPPING LOVE YOU, set in the Shacking Up world, follows two people, both working in real estate, who find themselves vying for the same properties in the Hamptons, leading to a sometimes-not-so-friendly competition.
 

Let's start by saying that this was a cute and sweet read. Some of Helena Hunting's books are intense, some have a heavy dosage of kink... This was one was light and sweet. 
Pierce and Rian meet by accident. Literally. Rian's twin sister hits his car and does a 'hit and run' on him. When he first sees Rian he thinks she is the one who did it. There is chemistry between them right from the start and it was fun reading their banter.

Pierce was a sweetheart from beginning to end. I wanted to jump into the book and give the guy a hug. He was a very down to earth mature guy that knew exactly what he wants in life and is trying to make it happen.

The book loses a point because of Rian. Her character was a tad daft and annoying at times. Specially towards the end... but I suppose you will all have to read it and figure it out for yourselves. It is certainly worth it. As all her books are 💗

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.

She knows Clayton Madden is using her to ruin her prestigious family... and she's using him right back. She plans t

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. After all, she’s still reeling from the recent death of her younger sister, the subsequent destruction of her relationship

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
