Review- I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne

Summary-

New York City’s hottest bachelors are stirring up trouble in this fun, flirty Oxford Novel, as a love triangle forces a feisty beauty to choose between winning back Mr. Right or giving in to Mr. Wrong.

Taylor Carr has it all—a sleek job in advertising, a stunning Manhattan apartment, and the perfect man to share it with: Bradley Calloway. Even after Bradley dumps her for a co-worker on move-in day, Taylor isn’t worried. She’ll get her man eventually. In the meantime, she needs a new roommate. Enter Nick Ballantine, career bartender, freelance writer—and longtime pain in Taylor’s ass. Sexy in a permanent five-o’clock-shadow kind of way, Nick knows how to push Taylor’s buttons, as if he could see right through to the real her.

Nick’s always trying to fix people, and nobody could use a good fixing more than Taylor. Sure, she’s gorgeous, with mesmerizing silver eyes, but it’s her vulnerability that kills him. Now that they’re shacking up together, the chemistry is out of control. Soon they’re putting every part of their two-bedroom apartment to good use. Then Taylor’s ex comes crawling back to her, and Nick figures she’ll jump at the chance to go back to her old life—unless he fights for the best thing that ever happened to him.

Review-

I really enjoy Lauren Layne books from time to time so I was excited to read I Knew You Were Trouble. This is actually the fourth book in her popular Oxford series. You don't need to have read the previous books in the series as this one easily stands alone but I would highly recommend that you do as there are multiple recurring characters. Overall, I liked I Knew You Were Trouble but it was definitely not my favourite read from Lauren Layne.

So this is the story of Taylor and Nick. Taylor and Nick have been circling each other since a long time. We actually get to see a few glimpses of them in the previous book. This book starts right at the beginning and let me tell you, these two have taken their time with each other. Let's start off with Taylor. Taylor is hard working and determined but she is clueless when it comes to anything emotional. I liked Taylor as a character. She had been called an ice princess her whole life but she didn't know how to be any other way. When we finally get to see her vulnerabilities we understand her insecurities and abandonment issues.

Nick on the other hand is the complete opposite of Taylor. Nick is rough around the edges to Taylor's perfect persona. He works as a free lancer at Oxford while working part time as a bartender. His image seems to be of the carefree commitment phobic but the reality of the situation is something very different. Nick was a very caring guy. He loved his family and wanted a real relationship though he had been badly burned in the past. I loved how protective Nick was of Taylor.

Nick and Taylor start off as adversaries but it is easy to see their chemistry underneath all the barbs they keep throwing each others way. Lauren Layne is some what of a specialist where it comes to enemies to lovers romance and this is a classic example of that. For the most part, I enjoyed the romance. The surprise at the end was alright for me, not a deal breaker but not entirely satisfying.

My only complaint here is that the ending felt super rushed to me. I think Nick and Taylor should have been given more time to deal with the situation and to accept for what it really was. Nick messes up and though Taylor does forgive him I just felt they needed more time. But I enjoyed seeing all the characters from the Love, Sex and Stilettos series as well as the Oxford guys. I can see that Lauren Layne is trying to set up another couple from this book so maybe this is not the end of the Oxford series. Yet.

Review- What Light by Jay Asher

 BOOK SUMMARY:

From Jay Asher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why, comes a romance that will break your heart, but soon have you believing again. . . .
Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. 

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that's moving and life-affirming and completely unforgettable.

REVIEW: 

After reading Jay Asher's dark and daunting Thirteen Reasons Why, I was pleasantly surprised by What Light, which I thought would be along similar lines, but it ended up being a very nice read, which I'm surprised I liked so much because I'm not the biggest fan of romances. But then again, as much as I hate to admit it, I am a sucker for love stories set during Christmas. There's just something warm and welcoming about such stories which always leave me with a smile on my face.

In What Light, Sierra's family, who lives in Oregon, owns a farm where they grow and sell Christmas trees in California, which means every Christmas is spent there. Sierra basically lives two lives and she adores both equally, but this time, when she visits California for Christmas, there is a lovely surprise for her in the form of Caleb. Sierra was an absolutely well developed, sensible and very likeable character who I adored. Just like her, Caleb was a gem too, and their story was so dazzling that I ended up falling in love with it.

This book is so different from Jay Asher's previous book that it almost feels like it's not the same author who has written it. The writing, not very surprisingly, was smooth and clear. I was actually in awe of the slow burn romance that Jay Asher so brilliantly nailed. I really don't have much else to say, other than the fact that I highly, highly recommend this book to fans of Young Adult/ New Adult contemporary romances.

Release Day Blitz- Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

 

BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE
By Vi Keeland
RELEASING JULY 17TH

BLURB

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.
When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.
You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. 
He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy. 
Oops.  My mistake. 
Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology. 
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.  
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.
Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.
This was going to be interesting…

Review- When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Summary-

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

Review-

I had been seeing multiple reviews of When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon on goodreads which intrigued me. The premise of the book definitely sounded cute and I enjoy reading Young Adult contemporary books so when I had an opportunity to read and review When Dimple Met Rishi I went for it. So I know this book has some brilliant reviews and some awful ones. I think I fall somewhere in the middle. While I did enjoy the book it didn't blow my mind away.

Let's start with Dimple. Dimple is ready for college and definitely ready for a break from her mother who is obsessed with finding her the "Ideal Indian Husband" Dimple decides to participate in a summer program which is perfect for her future. What she doesn't expect is to bump into Rishi and what angers her even more is that it has all been arranged by their parents. And thus starts the journey of Dimple and Rishi.

Okay so I liked Dimple. She was a simple girl but she had smarts and big dreams. She wanted to focus on her career and achieve her goals. Her love life is the last thing on her mind. Rishi on the other hand is the complete opposite of her. He is adorable in a dorky way. He respects his parents' wishes and wants to do what will make them happy. He came off as a little uptight but really he had a very idealistic view of the world. He was also quite smitten with Dimple right from their first meeting and that was extremely cute to see.

The concept of arranged marriage has been explored in When Dimple Met Rishi. This is a common practise in India and it is not as heinous as it sounds. Contrary to the popular belief the purpose of an arranged marriage is also to try and find love and that is what Dimple and Rishi's parents want for them. But I did think that things were exaggerated a bit in the book. There were times where Dimple came off as selfish and mean and I didn't like it. Rishi was always there to soften her sharp edges but I wanted her to be just as vulnerable as him.

Sandhya Menon is a really good writer. The book was filled with humour and sprinkled with Indian culture and bollywood references. Also, I loved that the chapters were short and went from both Dimple and Rishi's pov. I practically flew through the book. I also just found out that Ashish- who is Rishi's brother will be getting a book in the future and I am definitely looking forward to that one because he seemed really interesting. Overall When Dimple Met Rishi was a cute read about finding yourself and falling in love along the way.

Review- Saving June by Hannah Harrington

 BOOK SUMMARY:

If she'd waited less than two weeks, she'd have been June who died in June. But I guess my sister didn’t consider that. When sixteen-year-old Harper’s sister June, the perfect, popular, pretty one to Harper’s also-ran, commits suicide just before her high school graduation, nothing in Harper’s world makes sense anymore. With her family falling apart, Harper has a plan – steal June’s ashes and take her sister to the one place she always wanted to go: California. Embarking on a wild road trip of impromptu gigs and stolen kisses with mysterious musician Jake, the one person who could hold answers about June, Harper’s determined to find peace for her sister. But will she find peace for herself along the way? ‘fresh, fun and poignant’ - Kody Keplinger ‘tender, funny and moving’ - Courtney Summers ‘raw, powerful, and absolutely spot-on’ - YA Reads.com


Release date: June 1st 2012
Published by: Mira Ink
Page numbers: 336

REVIEW: 


I had been wanting to read Saving June since it was released a few years ago. But knowing me, I take all the time in the world to actually pick up a book and read it. When I released that I had covered up all the Young Adult reads on my shelf, I turned to Janhvi and asked her for a few recommendations when she reminded me that I wanted to read Saving June and she, very kindly, let me borrow her paperback.


Saving June is the story of Harper who loses her sister June because she commits suicide. Harper tries as much as she's able to, to figure out exactly what was wrong with her sister, but turns out, it is too late. So instead, she decides to do what her sister always dreamed of doing: going to California and embracing freedom. She then goes on a road trip from Michigan to California with her closest friend Laney and mysterious boy Jake. More than being a way to free June, the road trip ends up being necessary for Harper.

I love books about suicide, but I always have this one issue because I want a suicide to be justified in order for me to accept it. Now when it comes to Saving June, I have mixed feelings a about the suicide because we barely got a glimpse into June's life, let alone knowing her in and out. But on the other hand, the way she was portrayed and Harper's description of her sister did make some point which I could accept.

All that aside though, considering as this is Harper's story, Saving June was a very nicely written book which takes up an important issue in a very interesting and straightforward manner. Author Hannah Harrignton has written a lovely book that is a must read for fans of coming of age Young Adult reads, because this isn't a book you read, it's an experience you live.

        An excerpt from Beautiful Mistake…

The class was completely empty. I wasn’t even sure he knew I was still in my seat. If he did, he was good at ignoring me as he packed up his laptop.
“Contrary to the rumors you’ve probably heard, I don’t bite.”
I jumped when he spoke. Now that the lecture hall was no longer filled with students, the acoustics of the large space bounced his deep voice all over the walls.
I stood and began my walk of shame down to the front of the classroom. There was no doubt I owed the man an apology, even if he wasn’t a professor—a professor who would be my new boss for at least the next fifteen weeks. I wanted to kick myself in the ass for not apologizing last night before I left the bar. Now it would seem like I was only doing it because of the situation I was in.
Which was true, don’t get me wrong, but I didn’t want it to seem that way.
I took a deep breath. “I’m so sorry about last night.”
His face was unreadable. “I figured you might be, right about now.”
“I obviously thought you were someone else.”
“So I assumed. You thought I was the asshole. The one with the big dick, was it?”
I shut my eyes. For the last ninety minutes, I’d replayed the entire exchange from last night over and over in my head. I thought I’d remembered everything I said, but apparently I hadn’t. When I reopened my eyes, Professor West was still watching me. His stare was pretty damn intense.
I started to babble. “My friend Ava went out with this guy Owen for a month or so. He was full of shit from day one, but she didn’t see it. Actually walked up to her when she was leaving work one night and said, ‘Do you mind if I walk you home?My mother always told me to follow my dreams.’ She fell for it, the entire act, from the first day. Then one Saturday, he was supposedly out of town on business, and she was across town running errands for her mother. She took a shortcut through Madison Square Park on her way back from the grocery store and ran into him. He was with his wife and kids.”
“And you thought I was him, apparently?”
I nodded. “She came in during my shift and started drinking Long Island iced teas. When Owen walked in, she pointed to where he was standing and said he was the one in the blue shirt.”
“And we were both wearing blue shirts, I take it?”
I couldn’t help but smile, thinking of Ava last night. “Actually, no. Ava’s not much of a drinker. Turned out she was more sloshed than I thought. Owen’s shirt was brown—not even black that could be mistaken as navy or something.”
I saw Professor West’s lip twitch.
“Anyway, I’m really sorry. I barely gave you a chance to speak, and then when I realized what had happened, I was so mortified I didn’t even stop to apologize.”
“I accept your apology for last night. Even though you shouldn’t be approaching a man in the hallway to tell him off alone, your intentions were admirable.”
I should have shut up and been grateful he’d accepted my apology. Should have. “Why can’t I approach a man in the hallway?”
He leveled me with a stare. “Because you’re five foot nothing in a loud bar, and no one would have heard you if I’d dragged you into the men’s room and locked the door.”
I folded my arms over my chest. “I can take care of myself.”
“I didn’t say you couldn’t. I said you shouldn’t put yourself in those situations.”
“But you insinuated that I couldn’t by making that statement.”
He zipped his leather bag closed. “Ms. Martin, I just accepted your apology for calling me an asshole last night. Would you like me to retractthat acceptance?”
God, I really was an idiot. Being around this man seemed to turn me into a psychopath. “No. I’m sorry. I acted like a jerk, and I’d like to start over, if that’s possible.”
He nodded. “Everything prior to this morning is forgotten.”
“Thank you.”
“But this morning is not. I won’t accept lateness. Don’t let it happen again.”
I swallowed. “It won’t.”
He lifted his worn, brown leather laptop bag over one shoulder. “Meet me here at five tomorrow. We’ll go over the syllabus and the classes you’ll teach, as well as my grading rubric.”
That was smack in the middle of my shift, but I’d figure something out. “Okay.”
“Are you done for the day?”
“I am. I actually have to get to work. I’m covering Ava’s shift because she isn’t feeling too well after last night. We both work at O’Leary’s.”
“You waitress there?”
“Waitress, bartend, occasionally tell off patrons.”
That earned me a full smile from Professor West. God, he should do that more often. No, forget that. He definitely shouldn’t.
“I’ll walk out with you.”
We walked through the halls together and out to the parking lot. When we arrived at my car, I stopped. “This is me. So…five o’clock tomorrow?”
Professor West looked at my beat-up old Subaru. “You’re parked in a spot reserved for the Provost. You got a parking ticket.” He squinted. “Actually, it looks like you havetwo parking tickets. Was your inspection expired or something?”
Crap. “Umm…no. I keep an extra ticket in the glove compartment and stick it on my windshield when I’m forced to park illegally.”
His brows shot up. “Inventive.”
“Obviously it doesn’t always work.”
“Obviously.”
“They need more parking. When you’re late, it’s impossible to find a spot.”
He studied me. “Lateness is a frequent occurrence for you, I take it?”
“Unfortunately, it is.”
“Then I should clarify something I said earlier.”
“Oh, no, that’s not necessary. I won’t be late for your class.”
 He took a step closer and leaned in. “I’m glad to hear that, Ms. Martin. But that’s not what needs clarification.”
I swallowed. God, he smells good.
“Earlier I told you I didn’t bite students.” He smiled, and I felt the wickedness from it shoot down to some interesting places. “I don’t. But I make no promises about not biting feisty TAs.”

Teaser Tuesday #75


Teaser Tuesday is weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! 

"His eyes scan me from the top of my head to the soles of my shoes. I'm only five feet tall so it didn't take long."

- The Hating Game by Sally Thorne


Summary-
Nemesis (n.) 
1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome;
2) A person’s undoing;
3) Joshua Templeman.
Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

This. Book. Is. Hilarious. I'm loving it!

Introductory Post: Summer TBR Wipeout 2017


I. Love. Readathons. It's that simple really. I get a lot of reading done during them and try not to veer off track by rereading old favourites again. This Summer TBR Wipeout hosted by The Candid Cover seemed like an awesome opportunity to clear some of the paperbacks lying on my shelf as I tend to prefer ebooks. But I've also added a bunch of review copies and some books I've wanted to read since some time in my to-be-read pile. 




 

 

  


There's no guarantee that I will finish reading all of them. I've put in a lot of choices and I may just add/read something else depending on my mood and excitement level.

I'm super excited to get started! :)
