My Soon To Be Sex Life

Copy received by Publisher in exchange for an honest review

Charlie is down to her absolute. Total. Last. Resort.
Despite a thoroughly comprehensive list of potential cherry poppers, er…suitors, and careful plotting, Charlie is three weeks into her devirginization campaign, still untouched, and getting desperate. In the movie of her life, this aspiring screenwriter is giving herself a PG, for please, get some.
Her project goes into freeze frame when her mom checks herself into rehab and packs Charlie off to live with her estranged, or just plain strange, grandfather, Monty. How is she supposed to get a date when she has to go pick up his Depends?
Enter Eric, a hot rehab grad on the road to redemption, and the only one who can make Charlie rethink her strategy. The more she gets to know him, the more convinced she becomes that is the one, and not just another to add to the list of people who will abandon her.
In this hilarious and heartbreaking story of one girl’s detoured road to womanhood, Charlie’s list develops a life of its own – right when she realizes there’s so much more to lose. 

YA Reviews: Cruel Beauty by: Rosamund Hodge

Based on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Cruel Beauty is a dazzling love story about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.
Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom-all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him.
With no choice but to fulfill her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.
But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle-a shifting maze of magical rooms-enthralls her.
As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex's secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, how can she refuse her duty to kill him? With time running out, Nyx must decide what is more important: the future of her kingdom, or the man she was never supposed to love.

I was immediately intrigued by this book and HAD to read it because I absolutely LOVE Beauty and the Beast. 

Belle x Beast <3 <3 <3

This book was cute. Sooooo so cute.
It angered me how Nyx was already betrothed and why (won't say too much to prevent spoilers). The fact that Nyx had to go through everything that went on... UGH. *flips table*

When Nyx meets Ignifex, it's different than with Beauty and Beast. Ignifexwill harm her, no matter how he feels about her. It kind of makes things more realistic. I mean, come on: having a guy automatically change for you doesn't always happen. That's a bit of a rare sight, especially if the guy isn't your average guy and has a dark past.

Oh God. I can't even form my thoughts into words. I don't know how to begin talking about the book. There's all these scenes and parts of the book that comes into mind and it just sparks millions of emotions within me. It makes me want to cry all over again.

WARNING: This book will make you cry.

Hodge is able to manipulate the reader's feelings and really knows how to add impact to the blow. This book was AMAZING.

I just wish there was more character development with Ignifex. I feel like there wasn't enough of him, and it would've been great if there was.

I loved how the book had such a dark twist to the original "Beauty and the Beast". It really added to the book and its suspense. It was truly a phenomenal book to read.

Purchased & Finished

The Marked Men Series is an awesome read. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a guy that looks like a bad boy and can act like a bad boy but is sweet to that special someone, loyal to their friends and family, and ready to kick someone's ass for being inappropriate. Oh yeah and has lots of tattoo's and maybe some kinky hidden hardware. :-)

Seventeen-year-old Natasha Johnson is having a rough year. Her twin brother, Sean, died last spring after a car crash, and her parents have decided to pack up and leave the only home she’d ever known. It's been a lot to take in, and Nat has decidedly given up on the world... until moving to Stetson Valley and meeting high school outcast: Chace Owens. 

Chace's dark and mysterious aura is not exactly seen as 'normal', but Nat already knows that not a lot of things are of the norm when it comes to her life. She soon finds herself unable to escape Chace's strange pull on her heart, unleashing a sudden attraction to the unnatural forces that have always been burning within her. But uncovering her true self brings forth great danger, as Nat learns that her brother's death had a lot more to do with the side she's now unable to resist. 

Can Natasha calm the blazing flames and withstand the threat of danger, or will this new found power destroy her?

Do you ever think your life would ever change in a blink of an eye?

It has, only for Kiko who has been brought into the time twisted truth, revealed by the sexy devilish handsome guy named Scar, or what he calls himself, A Soul Reaper. The tales have been telling false rumors about them. Instead, Soul Reapers kill demons inside people to prevent themselves from going insane, murder someone, or fall into the depths of Tartarus when they die.

Now Scar saves Kiko from her near end death, claiming her as his long life weapon for the Gods, and her Soul mate. But being a weapon has not been easy. She has been tested, trained, and taught to save others before they turn into ruins. But she thought wrong about that.
While they are clouded with their own problems: Scar facing a time wrath of collecting 10, 000 demon souls to claim the ruling throne of the Underworld. Kiko fighting herself to learn the horrible truth about her true being, her parent’s mysteries and to keep her life stable with her stepbrother, Ken. Surely there isn't another way to escape from Scar’s mysterious predators, hunting her because of what she is? Will there be love, or has been all a lie from the start?

Genre NA Romance

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

Genre: YA

Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. Syrena law states that all Half-Breeds should be put to death.

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena turns the two kingdoms—Poseidon and Triton—against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself—and her Gift—to save a people she’s never known?

Once again, Anna Banks infuses Emma and Galen's points of view with humor, intrigue, and waves of romance.
