Drifter (Commander in Briefs #3) by Kristy Marie [arc review]

This was my first read by Kristy Marie and it will not be the last. I am already looking into the other books in the series. Drifter was funny, romantic, entertaining, touching... it had all the things needed to make a fabulous contemporary romance. I won't be surprise if this book makes into my favorite list in the end of the year. And since we are still in January, I would say that says a lot about the book hey?!

Drifter, Kristy Marie
Here is the Blurb:
Bianca

Pretty things don’t distract me. In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game. I don’t love. I hate. Even a pretty boy like him. 

Hayes

Two wrongs don’t make a right. Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. And if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved. It’s only fair she replace her.

The Review: 5+ Stars

Both main characters were outstanding. 
Bianca may have her demons, but they don't slow her down. She is doing the best she can out of a bad situation and what she does in the end is nothing short of amazing. She is the most noble and loyal thief -yup, you read that right- that I've come across. Specially in romance. 

Hayes has a fun and outgoing personality and a lot of charm. His backstory was heartbreaking and his care and attention for Bianca and her mother were heart melting and swoon worthy. These characteristics are definitely another reason you should believe me when I say the book was amazing: since when do I like nice boys on my books? *insert eye roll here* LOL (disclaimer for the newbies- I married the softest man to ever walk the earth, I need variety. My book boyfriends need to be moody and broody 🤣)

Anywho... the banter between them was at times sexy and flirty, other times sweet. And at all times it showed how perfect they are for each other. They pushed each other to be better people. 

On a somewhat unrelated note- I didn't really like the guy on the cover. HOWEVER, now that I have finished the book that is exactly how I would picture Hayes. Perfect cover model choice!

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 Greene sisters are a hoot and the man they fall for can do nothing but be at their mercy.  Blurb: In the second novel in Joanna Shupe's the Uptown Girl series, a ruthless casino owner bent on revenge finds his plans upended by a beautiful woman who proves to be more determined than he is—and too irresistible to deny. Powerful casino owner. Ruthless mastermind. Destroyer of men. He lives in the shadows...

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

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