[ARC] Absinthe by Winter Renshaw

thumbnail_IMG_3452.jpg

Synopsis: 

The name on the screen was “Absinthe.”

I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the best phone sex I never knew I could have.

We’d never met.

Until the day she walked into my office, her cherry lips wrapped around a candy apple sucker and an all too familiar voice that said, “They said you wanted to see me, Principal Hawthorne?”

highly intoxicating,
dangerously addictive,
and formerly forbidden
. . . until now.

This is Taboo. This is so wrong it’s right. And oh my god did I enjoy this forbidden love story. I was a bit unsure when I read the blurb. A high school student and a professor? I don’t know. . . but now I do know. And. Holy. Shit.

Absinthe is the story about a young girl and a man who meet each other online, creating an unbreakable bond. Halston have had it rough. She grew up in an unstable family environment and it has made her strong. She’s now living with her Uncle and his family. Halston is a bit older and wiser than the other students in her grade.

Ford is new to town. He’s the new principal at the high school Halston attends. They both meet on a dating app, Karma. Both having no idea who the other person is and only knowing each other by their usernames, Absinthe and Kerouac. This dating app let’s their users have complete anonymity. Only till you reach an amount of points do you get to see their profile pic, email adress and phone number.

When Absinthe and Kerouac start chatting there’s instant sparks. They’re so different yet so much alike. They build a unique friendship, sharing and caring about each other, still not knowing who the other person really is. But the moment they find out about who they’re really chatting with, things get interesting.

They can’t be together, it’s against the rules, it’s not right, but yet they find it hard to let each other go. They’ve become so attached through their constant chatting and talking on the phone that it is impossible to ignore the obvious connection they have with each other. I loved the pace of the story, it wasn’t slow and neither was it too fast. This is the real kind of taboo. If you love forbidden lovers books, this one is for you.

Cover Reveal + Blurb Reveal: The Learning Hours (How to Date a Douchebag, #3) by Sara Ney

He’s not a douchebag; 

but that doesn’t stop his friends from 

turning him into one.

MY FRIENDS WANT ME TO GET LAID. 

So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus, in bold printed letters: 

Are you the lucky lady who’s going to break our roommate’s cherry?

Him: socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: must have pulse. Text him at: 555-254-5551

The morons can’t even spell. And the texts I’ve been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I’m not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one. 

THIS ISN’T THE KIND OF ATTENTION I WANT. 

One text stands out from hundreds. One number I can’t bring myself to block. She seems different. Hotter, even in black and white. 

However, after seeing her in person, I know she’s not the girl for me. But my friends won’t let up—they just don’t get it. Douchebags or not, there’s one thing they’ll never understand: GIRLS DON’T WANT ME.

Especially her.

 

Excerpt:

He’s seated at a table in the far corner when I spot him from the door. He’s not hard to miss—not with his purple t-shirt in a sea of black and yellow, and wavy mussed hair. 

He’s slouching, hunched over his table

Defeated. Tired

My stomach rolls with nerves, nerves that have me rooted to the spot in the doorway, watching him.

Just watching.

For the entire four minutes I stand here, he sits immobile, studying his laptop, eyes moving along the screen, completely transfixed by whatever he’s reading. 

Learning. 

“Just go over there,” I whisper to myself, blowing out a puff of pent-up air. 

I put one foot in front of the other and begin toward him, spine ramrod straight, steeling myself, prepared for another argument. 

Twenty feet.

Fifteen.

Eight.

Two.

“Hi.” 

No reply.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” I lay my hand on the back of the wooden chair across from him, intending to pull it out.

He stiffens but doesn’t lift his head. “Yes I mind.”

“Would you mind if I sat at the table next to you?” I’m pushing his buttons, looking for a reaction, but he only spares me a brief glance. 

Shrugs. “Free country.”

I bite my lip to hide a smile, glad he didn’t tell me to take a hike…

[ARC] Twisted Twosome by Meghan Quinn

35521023

Synopsis: 

Racer McKay is a broody bastard.

From the moment I met him, he’s been rude, irritable, and unbearable. And worse? He’s broke.

A contractor working to remodel my parents pool house for extra cash, he stomps around in those clunky construction boots with his tool belt wrapped around his narrow waist, and a chip on his shoulder.

Racer McKay is also infuriatingly . . . sexy as hell. I want to take that pencil tucked behind his ear, and draw lazy lines slowly up and down his body all the while wanting to strangle him at the same time.

We try to stay out of each other’s way . . . that is until I have no other option but to ask for his help.

But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.

Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.

*Twisted Twosome is a stand alone romantic comedy.

Review:

5stars

Oh My Goodness.

This Romantic Comedy was amazing!


Georgina Westbrook has dreams of opening her own bridal dress store. But after her father rejects her ideas and refuses to invest in her business, her brother steps up and gives her the money she needs. But her father will do anything in his power to see that her dreams do not become reality. So he orders every construction company to deny helping Georgina. So she approaches the moody and arrogant man who’s working for her father. Racer McKay.

❝ I need a penis in my life, and I need it now… Before I do something stupid like throw myself at the disgusting, pigheaded – way too hot – Racer McKay. ❞ 

Racer Mckay is broke. He is struggling to pay bills and keeping food in the fridge. He’s not interested in helping Georgina. In his eyes she is like every rich child. Bossy, snobby and living in her own world where there are no problems. But he’s desperate for money and she’s willing to pay him good money, so he agrees to help her. But he has some conditions of his own; she can’t walk around the place in her high heels and fancy skirts and she’ll let him do his work.

❝ He’s my friend. I have another friend in my corner, and with a flawsome man like Racer McKay in my corner, I know I’m extremely lucky. ❞ 

While working on the store, they bicker and banter and play pranks on each other but there’s also so much sexual tension between them.

I love Meghan Quinn’s way of writing and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every book I’ve read by her. There was nothing different with this one. It was hilarious and sexy and just absolutely awesome. I loved Racer from the first time he appeared in My Best Friend’s Ex, he was hilarious and so sweet and I got to see a whole different side of him. Georgina was so passionate and driven it was a pleasure to read how she became stronger as an individual.

All is fair in love and auto maintenance.

Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.

Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.

Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.

She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words.

Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.

The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

Synopsis:

Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie? 

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?
