Review- Tempting the Bodyguard by J. Lynn


He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don't protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he's caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she's at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose...


I have been waiting for Tempting the Bodyguard to come out since a looong time. So when it finally did come out I jumped on it. I wasn't expecting much from Chandler and Alana but never underestimate the charm of a Gamble brother. Tempting the Bodyguard made for a fun read.

Alana is a publicist. We'd met her in the previous book where she came off as almost cruel in her methods as a publicist. I didn't think I'd like Alana at first but I ended up liking her a lot. Just goes to show there is so much below the surface. Alana has someone stalking her and the only person she can think of who will protect her is Chandler Gamble.

Chandler is the oldest Gamble Brother and I think he just might be my favorite one. I loved how Chandler was attracted to Alana. Never once did he deny his feelings for her. I especially liked how he was not scared of commitment. He actually wanted one with Alana even though she was skittish. Another thing which got me major brownie points for him was how he ALWAYS stood up for Alana. He was really protective of her and never once let anybody mistreat her. Not even his brothers.

The chemistry between Alana and Chandler has been building up for sometime now and we get to see when it reaches its peak. They were hot together. It may not look like it from their constant arguments but they understood each other better than anybody. I loved them together.

I also really liked that we got to see the rest of the cast and how they were doing. The dynamics between the brothers were great and I liked how everything was sorted by the end of it. The stalker plot line was kinda predictable but that didn't deter my overall enjoyment. I think this was a great conclusion to the Gamble Brothers series.

Review- Kingdom Come by Aarti V. Raman


How do you kill a man with no Achilles heel? You cut off his foot Tom Jones. 

Set against the serene beauty of Kashmir, Ladakh and Tibet, Kingdom Come is a gripping story of death and loss, vengeance and retribution, love and life. Krivi Iyer is an embittered former spy and bomb defusal expert with only one regret. That he couldn't catch The Woodpecker, a dangerous, mentally unstable bomber who ended his partner's family. He has a second chance to go after his arch enemy with the arrival of Ziya Maarten, the manager of 'Goonj Business Enterprises' in Srinagar, Kashmir, who is alleged to be The Woodpecker's sister. Except, Ziya is a beautiful distraction and not a terrorist's sister. When a tragedy in London tears Ziya's life apart, she can only rely on Krivi to give her the absolution and vengeance she needs to move on. Between training to be an anti-terrorist squad member and finding The Woodpecker, Ziya uncovers the secrets of Krivi's tormented past. But will two tortured souls find the courage to love?


I didn't keep many expectations before diving into Kingdom Come so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually ended up liking it. By the end of the book I was very much invested in Krivi and Ziya's story and desperately wishing for their happy ever after. I really enjoyed Kingdom Come.

Ziya is the manager of Goonj Business Enterprises in Kashmir. She has come a long way from being an orphan. She has worked hard to get where she is at present. I really liked Ziya. She was stubborn but determined. I loved that she was such a good friend to Noor and Sam. Ziya can't help but be intrigued by Krivi who comes into her life and makes her question her feelings.

Krivi is a former spy and a bomb defusal expert. When he gets intel that Ziya may be the sister of Woodpecker, a wanted terrorist, he will do anything to take him down. Even if it means spying on Ziya. Krivi is shown as a cold hardened soldier. He was all that but as we get to know him there is so much more depth to him. I liked how protective he was of Ziya after the truth comes out. 

Ziya and Krivi may look different on the surface but actually they had a lot of traits in common. The sparks start flying right off the pages. I liked how the romance went. Somehow Ziya and Krivi worked seamlessly when they were together. But the book is not all romance. We also get Woodpecker's point of view. It just brings home the point of how serious their situation is.

Aarti V. Raman has a very engaging writing style. She got me hooked on to the story as soon as I started reading. There were some twists that I did not see coming. One made me angry while the other left me shocked. All in all Kingdom Come was a really good blend of romance and thriller and I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys both the genres.

Waiting on Wednesday #87

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
Publication Date- July 29th 2014

Goodreads Summary: 

Five strangers. Countless adventures.One epic way to get lost. 

Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most. 

There's HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings…until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love. 

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila's own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you're looking for is to get lost along the way.

I came across this book while reading another book and it sounded very interesting to me. I've made the cover large so that you guys can see those tiny dots that mean something. Interesting, right? I hope the book ends up being just as promising as it sounds at the moment. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Review- Rush by Nyrae Dawn

Goodreads Summary:

This heartbreaking, powerful New Adult male/male romance will be loved by fans of Jamie McGuire, Jessica Sorensen and Abbi Glines, as well as by all fans of Nyrae Dawn's The Games trilogy... 

What if you fell in love with your best friend? But no one could ever know... Brandon Chase has always defined himself by one thing: football. He's the star of the team, an idol to his teammates and surrounded by the hottest girls. But Brandon has a secret - how he really feels about his friend Alec Andrews. Rather than confront the truth, Brandon pushes Alec away. But when Brandon is seriously injured in a car crash, the only person who can get through to him is Alec. Against all odds, Alec helps Brandon train his way back to fitness and prepare for the NFL draft. As they spend the summer together, the two can't deny their attraction - the rush they feel when they're together is impossible to deny and neither wants to walk away. Will Brandon be brave enough to face the consequences of following his heart? No matter what the cost?

I loved Nyrae Dawn's What A Boy Wants, What A Boy Needs and Measuring Up. Those are books I read when I was completely into Young Adult and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of them. I, however, no matter how big a fan of Nyrae's I became after that, didn't read any other books by the author. But once I got to know that her latest book, Rush, was a male/ male romance, I just knew I had to read it. And while I realised I missed out on Nyrae's simple and sweet writing, I didn't really enjoy the story as much as I was looking forward to enjoying it. 

Rush is the story of Alec and Brandon, who have been gay for as long as they know and they've been friends for a long time. When they first meet, sparks fly, but it's never a bed of roses. They know how difficult it is to survive in a world where anything outside of "normal" is taken as something that's bad, horrible and disgusting. They know how disappointed in them their respective families will be and how much Brandon, the football star's career will be affected by coming out of the closet. 

What I did like about Rush was the relationship between our two heroes. Alec and Brandon made for a very sweet and sensible couple, who cared deeply for each other and were at their best only when they were together. The chemistry between them was nice and hot. The few aspects that didn't sit quite well with me were the time Brandon took to accept that it's guys he likes. At the beginning, it frustrated me to no end when he kept pushing Alec aside. But to balance that out, Alec was a determined and practical person, who put Brandon first no matter what and who was the reason why the two came together. The huge difference between both their families gives two points of views on the breaking of the big news. While Brandon's side of the story was very sweet, Alec's side seemed more real and impacting. 

Overall, Rush wasn't a bad read at all. It was really good, in fact. It's just that I've read a lot of LGBT books and they've blown me away. In a way, I expected Rush to do the same. But now that I think of it, the whole theme on which Rush is based is different and taking into consideration that context, it was a very cute and compelling read that was good in its own way. Nyrae Dawn writes really well, although the typos could have seen better editing. Anyway, the author has written a nice, contemporary M/M romance that takes up the good and the bad side of things and in this day and age, we need more books like this.

Review- Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

Goodreads Summary:

It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path.


It had been a long time since I read any book, since I even sat through any book for that matter. I was really looking forward to buddy reading Love Letters to the Dead with my friend Tanja @ Ja Citam, a ti? since the time when we were both waiting on it. Unfortunately, assignments, studies and exams didn't let me do that. Although when Tanja told me she found the book to be really interesting, I knew I would too and how right were we! This was just the kind of contemporary story that I actually prefer and like even and it was a perfect read to get out of almost a month-long reading slump and mark the beginning of holidays. 

Love Letters to the Dead is a book written in the form of letters that the protagonist Laurel has to write to dead people as part of her school assignment. This format is easy and so much fun to read because it is something different and makes the reading experience very interesting and refreshing. Author Ava Dellaira does a smashing job with the writing. It is so clean and poetic. What adds to the beauty of it is lines borrowed from various poems and an absolutely beautiful original poem that marks the end of a story which is exactly how I like my stories to be- disturbing, sad and simply astounding. If that isn't enough, most of the letters are addressed to famous musicians that practically the entire world has heard of which makes music, in a very hidden and somber way, an integral part of the book. 

From a few incidents that Laurel narrates to the people she writes her letters to, I could make out what the issue with her was and I was right about it and that contributes in making the story predictable. But the way in which the story was executed and presented was simply gorgeous. Besides, Laurel's issues weren't the only focus. The people around her- her dad, her mom, her sister, her friends, her love interest- each one had some issue or the other and it was the sense of togetherness that they shared, in sadness and in happy days, that made the story so touching. I have avoided speaking of the story and I really don't wish to change my mind at this point. But for me- and this is for the reader to find out how and why- the book is not just about Laurel, it's about her sister May and her friends Hannah and Natalie. 

There were some aspects to it, like the predictability of the story, the importance given to characters whose absence wouldn't had made much of a difference, the focus on how things should be rather than how they actually are and a natural submission of women to male domination, what makes this book so interesting is how real it is. And reality, as cruel as it might be, is reality and it hits straight in the face. The fact that it had just been a really long time since I actually read a great book made me put aside these minute negatives and made me admire Love Letters to the Dead a lot and I'm glad I read it. It wasn't extraornidary, yes, but it has definitely and undoubtedly made it to the list of the few books that I actually liked reading so far in 2014.

Review- Afterburn and Aftershock by Sylvia Day


Never mix business with pleasure. Never bring politics into the bedroom. In a way I did both when I took Jackson Rutledge as a lover. I can't say I wasn't warned.

Two years later, he was back. Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close. Under the tutelage of Lei Yeung, one of the sharpest businesswomen in New York, I had picked up a thing or two since Jax walked away. I wasn't the girl he once knew, but he hadn't changed. Unlike the last time we'd drifted into each other's lives, I knew exactly what I was dealing with... and how addictive his touch could be.

The inner circle of glamour, sex, and privilege was Jax's playground--but this time, I knew the rules of the game. In the cutthroat business world, one adage rules all: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer...


I have been wanting to read a Sylvia Day book to know what all the hype was about. I still have to read her Bared to You series but when I had an opportunity to read Afterburn and Aftershock I couldn't let it pass by. I can definitely see the charm in Sylvia Day's writing. I ended up really enjoying Afterburn and Aftershock.

Gia is our heroine. The entire book moves from her point of view. Two years ago Gia fell in love with Jackson Rutledge. She thought her world was about to change but Jax's abrupt departure from her life leaves her heart broken. She is left to pick up the pieces of her dreams and move on. I genuinely liked Gia. She was a modern woman, focused on her career, family oriented. She did want love in her life but was still not ready for it after Jax.

Now Jax, was a really complex hero. First I found him to be a bit arrogant and well, an asshole but there were so many layers to him. His reasons for leaving Gia two years ago were right in his own head and even though he doesn't think he can do relationships it was clear he was head over heels in love with Gia.

Both Jax and Gia had issues but still together they always seemed to work. Their chemistry was hot. There is no doubt Sylvia Day knows how to write steamy scenes. I also liked how the intimate scenes seemed to bring Jax and Gia closer, not only in a sexual way but at an emotional level as well. It was all very well done.

I also really enjoyed the wide cast of characters we get with Gia's family. I adored her three over protective brothers. I tend to love books with good sibling relationships and I got just that in Afterburn and Aftershock. The business world was also written very well. This was a good read for a first time Sylvia Day book. I can't wait to read more from her.

Waiting on Wednesday #86

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Darkest Touch by Gena Showalter
Publication Date: November 25, 2014


From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet…

Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin’s every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.

She is Keeley Cael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean the end for her, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.

FINALLY, Torin's book is here and I couldn't be more excited. The cover is gorgeous and matches my imagination perfectly. Hope its equally good!
What are you waiting on?

Top Ten Tuesday #28

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. 

Today's topic is:

top ten books about friendship

Here's my list:

First off, I must say that this is a great topic as we've seen some really incredible friendships in many, many books. 

I have to begin with this. The friendship between Harry, Ron and Hermione is the best one I've read so far and it's portrayed so well in the movies by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Gritn and Emma Watson. It's so true that it makes you beelieve they're friends with you too. I love these guys. 

The friendship between the protagonists of this life-changing novel, Ali and Hassan, is simply stunning. Although it may not necessarily be called friendship by the end of it. They have thier ups and downs, goods and bads, rights and wrongs, but what matters is they love each other from the bottom of thier hearts to the point that they will die for each other. 

Both these stories are set in such a time when, at that age, friends mean the world and the trios in both the books prove that beautifully. They're more like brothers than friends. The movies portray that beautifully as well. 

I have only one word for the friendships in these novels. Wow. Just plain wow. Kelley York manages to make her readers fall in love with her characters, no matter how fucked up they are. Friendship plays the most important role in both the books. 


I loved the friendship between Travis and his cousin Shepley and Abby and America and when the four are together, it's a blast. I loved hanging with them as well. 

Daniel is the funniest guy I have ever come across in New Adult books and he simply rocks. It takes courage to stand up on the school cafeteria tabls and shout out your love for your best friend. His friendhsip with the main character, Holder, is mind-blowing and super funny. 

This is. The. Cutest. Friendship amonsgt all the Young Adult contemporaries that I've read. The two guys and two girls who are couples as well make for a cute and sweet group whose strong friendship shows that they'll remain friends forever.  


Link is one funny guy and he lightens up the mood whereever he goes. He balances Ethan's mystery and confusion really well. The two are awesome buddies. I absolutely dislike the movie cast but oh well... Here we go. 

The title says it all. The female protagonist, Charlotte, has all male friends and thier friendhsip is so easy and cool. I heart this book large. 

The main reason why I'm so fond of this book is that it portrays friendhsip between girls who're always there for each other and they rock together. There's usually just our female MC and her best friend normally, so a group of girlfriends becomes refreshing. I haven't come across any other book like this. 

What books made it your list? Link me up to your posts. Happy Tuesday and happy reading, guys!

Quebec Exchange Programme Post #1- About Books

Hi, everyone! Most of you know that I am pursuing my Masters in French literature and as part of my studies, I signed up for an exchange programme between my univeristy, Department of Foreing Languages, University of Pune and Cégep de Sherbrooke, Quebec. The exchange was for a period of two weeks, where we left on March 29th and were back here on the 14th of April. While in Sherbrooke, we stayed at our correspondant's place and attended classes with them. Luckily for me, my lovely correspondant studies literature as well so we had a great time bonding over books and I found her classes to be supremely interesting. Some of my blogging buddies asked me to share my experiences there and I was anyway looking forward to making posts on the trip. When we got back, I was way too occupied with assignments, catching up on all the work I had missed and my exams. But now that I have a nice, long holiday, I have decided to revisit those great fifteen days by making specific themed posts. So in this post, I will be concentrating on my bookish experience there. It makes perfect sense since ours is a book blog and I am sure all you book lovers will have a fun time looking at what I have in store for you. 

To begin with, I had already studied Canadian history in my first semester and since we would try to establish a link between the socio-political and literary history of Canada, I was impressed with myself when I came across something that I already knew a little about. In fact, the minute we left for Sherbrooke from Montreal, I read the names of various roads there and found myself relating it to some historical aspect that I was already well aware of. When I went to my correspondant's house and when she showed me around, the first thing I noticed was the well-stacked and stunning bookshelves she had in her room and another one in the room arranged for me. There too, I came across titles I'd already heard about and if it weren't for a tight and tiring schedule, I would have loved to read the books but I would fall asleep almost the minute I hit the bed. Anyway, when it comes to pictures, no one can really stop me, so I took pictures of the two books that caught my attention since they reminded me of all that I had studied and took me back to my classes. I began reading the second book in the picture below but I couldn't continue with it. Nonetheless, it had a really eye-catching dedication, a picture of which is attached, the translation of which- and pardon me if I'm wrong here- goes something like this- To all the women that I love, who occupy my life and my fiction.

Salut Galarneau ! by Jacques Gobout and Les Belles-Soeurs by Michel Tremblay
Dedication of Les Belles-Soeurs by Michelle Tremblay
When I began talking to my correspondant, I remember her asking me if there was anything specific that I'd like to do once I got to Sherbrooke and without even thinking, I told her that I wanted to make a trip to the bookstore. Being the kind host that she is, she made sure that we visited, not one, not two but three  incredible bookstores and I visited a few additional ones as well. While I was really interested in taking a look at all the phsical copies of books that don't come in India till a few weeks after their release, the main purpose of the trip was a cultural exchange and obviously, with culture comes language, so I inclined more towards French literature which was simply astounding. Like any lover of the written world, I wish I could've spend days and days at a single bookstore checking out all the books they had at my own pace, but we had plenty of other things to do and see as well. 

The first bookstore we went to was in a small and absolutely gorgeous town called Magog. This small trip was planned by my host family for the first Sunday that I was there. The book-store reminded me of all those cosy book shops that I see in movies. I found meself getting lost in this tiny world where each book probably had a whole new world in it to discover and revel in. This is also where my purchases officially began and I bought two books- Les Grands Ecrivains Francais De Rabelais à Camus (Les Mini Larousse) and Poudre de Kumkum by Larry Tremblay. I have already read the latter since it's a very small book and it fit perfectly into what we studied this past semester, where we looked at and analysed what has been written on India by outsiders. In fact, I even purchased it keeping in mind my professor who said it would be a nice read and that I found something truly interesting (yay me!). The book is currently with my friend and I thank her for taking the picture for me so you could all see it. 

Les Grands Ecrivains Francais De Rabelais à Camus
Poudre de Kumkum by Larry Tremblay
Since we first got an excpert from Albert Camus' L'Etranger in our entrance exam and then again in another exam, I had been teased enough and I was looking forward to reading and analysing the book in the second semester in our 20th Century Literature classes. All I'll say now is that Camus has found an ardent admirer in me and his L'etranger, a new fan. I have read the US English edition of the book and my review of the same can be read here. I was simply stunned when I got a copy of L'Etranger for a great price (many thanks to my correspondant) and La Chute, which I bought in the Cégep bookstore. The former was at this really cool bookstore called Archambault. To mark my most epic purchase (L'Etranger), I even asked my correspondant to click my picture in front of the store. How stunning are these copies! 

L'Etranger and La Chute by Albert Camus
Outside Archambault
My friends and I once went out for our last-minute shopping when we came across an absolutely comfortable and warm second-hand book-store where we were welcomed by very kind and welcoming man, who sold Jean-Paul Sartre's L'existentialisme est un humanisme to me for literally a throwway price. This was my cheapest book purchase there and as if the kind gestures wasn't enough, the man had two CDs which he was willing to gift to two people from our group of students who'd come from so far away to his shop. Well, luck was, for a change, in my favour that day and I ended up winning one of the CDs that's filled with some great Quebec music. I hardly remember the last time I purchased a CD since we now live in a time where music comes to us by a simple click. This CD was such a refreshing change and brought back many memories of times when we'd wait for a music album to come out so we could buy it's CD. Ah, nostalgia! Below are pictures of Sartre's book, the CD and the cute little book-store called Au tourne-livre

La Boutine Souriante en spectacle
Au tourne-livre
I absolutely adore how these books have added to my already full shelf. Folio editions are so adorable, they barely weigh anything and just looking at them makes me happy, although I better start reading now! 

L'Etranger and La Chute by Albert Camus and L'Existentialisme est un humanisme by Jean-Paul Sartre
This marks an end to my book shopping but it, by no means, marks an end to my journey, keeping in mind the theme of this post. The great guys at Cégep had organised a really pleasant walking tour for us which gave us an opportunity to see the intricate and gorgeous murals painted on the city walls near to Cégep. If I begin talking about all the murals, it will take me another post altogether to describe them, so instead, to go with the theme of this post, I'll focus on only one- and for me, the most interesting- mural. Yes, you got it right! The one with books on it. And oh my God! It was beautiful. There is no joy as deep as the one you feel when your friends see books and shout your name. I know this becasue I experienced it when we came across this beauty. Isn't it marvellous?

While on the same tour, we even visited the local library which was so huge so amazing, I wish I lived there! The inside for a book lover is what Disney is for a happy-ever-after and fairy-tale lover- it's paradise. In the third picture, you can see me with the very sweet Madame Liette Bergeron who teaches at Cégep and is herself a lover and reader of books and what better place for us book lovers than around books?

Whilst we're talking about books, I simply cannot forget to put up a picture of the one book that has travelled with me across continents and that I had been working on practically this entire semester. Well, I was pretty impressed with my score on the paper so I really have no complaints. But this definitely counts as epic and a story I'll keep going back to forever. Book- Orientalism by Edward W. Said 

Reading Orientalism by Edward Said in the school corridors
Now, to mark the end of my trip, my lovely host family (who know me so well) gifted me- no prizes for guessing- a book! It was such an amazing  gesture on their part as this wonderful book (seen below) talks about Quebec. Also, it was really thoughtful of them to have picked a book that has both English and French descriptions as with the help of the former, my family will get a glimpse into Quebec and the latter will help me improve and practise the language. 

Quebec La Belle Province
That brings us to the end of the first in a series of posts I have planned. None of them are scheduled as yet. I'll probably just put them down as and when the mood strikes. I have posts in mind in which I'd like to talk about food, language, travelling alone for the first time, etc. If you have any suggestions or if there's anything in particular that you'd like to know, drop me a line so I can start thinking along those lines and prepare a post accordingly. Ideally, I would have loved to write these posts in French, but for all our other readers, I thought it best to stick to English so no one misses out on anything. Till then, I hope you enjoyed reading this post just as much as I enjoyed putting it up. It was really good for me since I got to revisit the fabulous experience that I had and I hope you had fun getting a glimpse into it. Thank you for stopping by and see you around!
