[ARC] The Brightest Sunset (The Darkest Sunrise, #2) by Aly Martinez



Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Words destroyed me.
“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”
“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”
“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.
Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.
“He’s gone.”
In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”



❝ Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me… ❞ 

After finishing the first book, I jumped right into this one. I prepared myself for the heartache that was to come. And oh it did. And it was incredible.

This book is about reunion, trust, love and mending hearts. I can’t write this review without spoiling the first book so I’ll be short and vague.

“Charlotte quieted my storm. She extinguished the fire. And she soothed my demons.
Without her, I’d be lost in darkness. Alone.”

Porter and Charlotte were such a beautiful and strong couple. I absolutely adored them. Both of them are emotionally damaged. I was crying from the first page, everything that happened, every word, all the feelings filled me. I felt everything. This book exceeded all expectations.

“Damn it, Charlotte, we will find a way to make this work. This is my life. This is your life. This is his life. And her life. This is our life and you know it. We’ll figure out the details later, but for now, all I need from you is a promise that we are going to do this. No matter what. We’re in this together.” 

I fell in love with Porter and his whole family in the first book. I loved how he loved his children how he shone bright through his darkness. Charlotte broke my heart in the first book, but I loved to see how she got even stronger and how she fought her demons.

“It’s always darkest before dawn … We just have to wait a little longer. The sun always rises, baby.” 

This book has it all, there were times I was laughing out loud, the next second I was bawling and then swooning. It is definitely a must read!

A Little Bit Like Love is LIVE

A Little Bit Like Love, an all-new sexy STANDALONE MM romance from Brooke Blaine is LIVE! 


A Little Bit Like Love by Brooke Blaine 

Publication Date: July 27th, 2017 

Genre: Contemporary Romance/MM Romance 


What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you’d left behind? 

Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy—and that secret’s name is Lucas. 


When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he’s on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew. 

But Lucas isn’t the same man he was eight years ago. 

One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven’s ultimate playboy, a reputation he’s honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he’s brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene. 

Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he’s carefully constructed, but it’s the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him. 

Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or maybe…it was a little bit like love.

She thinks this is his pathetic attempt to repair their marriage.

She’s wrong

[ARC] The Difference Between Us (Opposites Attract, #2) By Rachel Higginson



I’m cursed.

At least when it comes to finding Mr. Right.

I’m tired of men that only want one night stands or blind dates that are nothing but awkward and uncomfortable. I’m tired of avoiding inappropriate text messages and the constant disappointment of always meeting Mr. Wrong.

After all these years of dates that lead nowhere, I can admit that it’s me. I’m the problem. I’m shy and picky and cursed. Definitely cursed.

So I’ve decided two things.

The first? I’m giving up dating and relationships and men in general. Maybe, possibly, forever.

The second? I’m going to have to try harder to avoid Ezra Baptiste.

If I couldn’t hack it in the kiddy pool of dating, I certainly can’t swim in his deep end. He’s too successful. Too intense. He’s all man when I’m used to nothing but boys pretending to be grownups. He’s everything I’m afraid to want and so far out of my league we might as well be different species entirely.

So he’ll need to find a different artist to paint his mural. And a different graphic designer to help him with his website. He’ll need to find someone else to glare at and flirt with and kiss.

It can’t be me.

We’re too different.


arc 2


❝ Ezra Baptiste was one of the most intolerable men I had ever met. Arrogant, condescending, offensively good looking, he had all the qualities of a human I tried to avoid. ❞ 

This book was EVERYTHING! I absolutely loved it. This is one of those books you will not want to put down and at the same time you don’t want it to end.

After plenty of unfortunate dates and men, Molly Maverick has finally decided to to give up on dating. Now she’s focusing on her best friend getting married, her new projects and avoiding Ezra Baptiste. The man with angry, brown eyes. The man who had attacked her professional taste. Molly and Ezra are forced to interact because of their mutual friends.

Ezra Baptiste is a wealthy, handsome man. He owns three restaurants and is very successful. Now he wants Molly’s help with his website and he wants her to paint a mural in his restaurant. And he always gets what he wants.

❝ I don’t want to date myself. You make me smile when I’ve had the worst day. And you make me see the world in brighter colours and unique angles. You’ve opened my mind to my business, but also to my friends. I would be so boring without you. We are different, but in the best possible way. ❞ 

I loved their bickering, and there was a lot of it. What I loved most is how different they were and how that made them such a great couple.

Paper Princess (The Royals, #1) by Erin Watt



From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.



“Look, I like you. Didn’t think I would but I do, and because I like you, I feel the need to warn you that we Royals are pretty fucked up. We’re good in bed, but out of it? We’re like a stage four hurricane.” 

Wow! It’s true. These Royals will fucking ruin you…

Ella is a seventeen year old, now orphan, struggling with school and holding a job, stripping for money. But now a strange man has shown up. Callum Royal, who is Ella’s father’s friend, and he wants to take Ella with him. To live with him and his five sons.

“You want me to say it?” he whispers. “Fine, I’ll say it. I want you. I fucking want you.” 

Reed Royal is all kind of messed up. He’s rich, powerful and absolutely gorgeous. And he is not happy about his father bringing home Ella to live with them. So he makes it hard for her. And his brothers help. Only things don’t go as he thought and soon, he’s seeing Ella in a different way, with stronger feelings.

“No one wants to be ruined. We all want to be saved.” 

I did not expect to get as sucked in as I did. I had my doubts about this one but OH LORD was it good. I loved Ella’s strength and how she was her own person. There were times, plenty of times, I wanted to slap Reed, he could get too much sometimes but when his romantic and soft side came out I was swooning!

This is a must read and I recommend it a 100%.

“Reed Royal has broken me. I’ve fallen from the sky and I’m not sure I can get up. Not this time.”


The Darkest Sunrise (The Darkest Sunrise, #1) by Aly Martinez



Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.
“You’re pregnant.”
“It’s a boy.”
“Your son needs a heart transplant.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.
Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.
“He’s gone.”
For ten years, the darkness consumed me.
In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”




❝ Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me… ❞ 

I knew the moment I read the synopsis I’ll love this book. This heart wrenching story consumed me. It had me tearing up and screaming from the first chapter.

Charlotte Mills is drowning in her own darkness. She’s lost her baby boy and is completely lost. Drowning herself in her work, she isolates herself. She doesn’t feel, she doesn’t let herself love. It’s been ten years since her boy disappeared and she’s living with the guilt of leaving him unattended until this day. She can’t stand to see children without Lucas popping into her head.

Porter Reese is dealing with his own darkness. Having a son who’s very sick, juggling life and trying to get Travis the treatment he needs, he tries to get in contact with the best doctor in town. Dr. Mills. But Dr. Mills doesn’t treat children. But he will do anything for his son to be able to live like a normal eleven year old. Only when he meets Dr. Mill, she’s completely different from anyone.

❝ But as I clung to him, trying to perform the impossible task of collecting myself, it hit me that the darkness was all we’d ever have. ❞ 

He sees her pain. It’s like his own.
He sees her emptiness. Her numbness. Just like his own.
They both are the lights in each others darkness.

I read this one in one sitting, on the edge of my seat needing answers when I was done. I absolutely loved Charlotte and Porter, they were so strong and real. I felt everything alongside them. Their pain. The small glimpse of happiness. It was absolutely amazing. I loved every minute of it and I can’t wait for the second book.
