Never Never: Part Two (Never Never, #2)Never Never: Part Two by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Amanda

I’m unsure what I really want to say about this book. I did get a few answers, but it never really went anywhere for me. I feel like this book could’ve just been included within book 3.

I really enjoyed the first book; this one just left me disappointed.

3 stars

Teresa

While I feel I got some answers, honestly I feel as though this could have just been included with what will be the last book.

I almost felt cheated in a way, the writing was good, as always, and we learned a little more about Charlie and Silas, but that was it. Being cut off in mid-sentence was frustrating, if there’s a part four to this story, I’m flouncing.

3 1/2 stars

Irrevocable (Evan Arden Book 5) By Shay Savage

Irrevocable-ebook

Amazon

Have you ever made a mistake?

A big one?

I’m back in Chicago and back in business with my boss, Rinaldo Moretti.  So much for my run at a normal life.  There are some new faces in the organization, and someone’s been cooking the books.  Personally?  I think they’re after more than a just little cash.  If I have any hopes of flushing out the traitor, I’m going to need to find a good hooker to help me sleep at night.

As the bodies pile up, I find solace in Alina.  There’s something about her, something different.  She understands me without asking a lot of questions.  It’s as if she’s known me for years, yet we’ve only just met.  If I weren’t so distracted by business, I’d try to figure out her story.  She’s the only one keeping me grounded as my world spins out of control.

I’m going to lose the one man who has ever meant anything to me – the only man to ever call me son.  I want to deny his request, but there is no avoiding what awaits me.  I never wanted any of this, but I’m out of options, and time is running out.

Some choices have unforeseen consequences, and some choices are simply irrevocable.

Irrevocable (Evan Arden Book 5)Irrevocable by Shay Savage
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

**We received an ARC courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review.**

When I first started reading this book (while Shay was writing it), my first thought was, “WTF!”. Now that I’ve read the whole thing, I freaking love it!

I know not everyone is going to love this series; and some of you may even hate it. In my mind, Evan got the life he deserved, with the right woman for him, in the end.

I was happy to see loose ends tied up, and got quite a few answers that I hope for. To say I was shocked at the twists would be an understatement; I didn’t see them coming, not even close: the betrayals; the partnerships; the secrets that were revealed—which shocked me to the core.

I’ll miss Evan, but I’m happy to see he got what he needed and (didn’t know he) wanted out of life.

5 stars
Amanda:
I am not even sure where to start. I loved getting to see Evan come into his own. This book closed up a lot of loose ends that I have wondered about. I will truly miss Evan Arden.

I was happy that he ended up with a great girl who loved him no matter what he did. He had a rough life and deserved to be happy.

5 stars

Pucked by Helena Hunting

PuckedPucked by Helena Hunting
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We were given the ARC for an honest review by the author.
Amanda:
Let me just say I have never laughed so much or so hard reading a book as I did with this one. Once I started reading I refused put it down—real world be damned!
Violet Hall was the quite shy girl, with a mouth that had no filter at all. She often just spouted things out of her mouth without ever realizing it. Hockey players were not her thing after she got burned by one in the past, until she met the captain of her step-brother’s hockey team, Alex Waters.
Alex was a man-whore living life to the fullest; sleeping with a different girl at nearly every stop in practically every city where his team played. He was famous for his hat trick…you would need read the book to learn what that was! Once he laid eyes on Violet, his hockey stick will never let her beaver be lonely again.
The only thing I didn’t like were the jumps in time near the end of the book. I found them frustrating and hard to follow along, at times. But that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying Pucked; it was a very comical read.
4 stars
Teresa:
I loved this, truly loved this book! I related to Violet because I have no filter—whatsoever—and when I get nervous I say very inappropriate things. I laughed so hard at times that I cried!! The book needed a tissue warning for a very different reason than what I’m used to—it was hilarious!
I enjoyed having the insight into Alex’s mind and the way it worked; he was such a typical man. And we all know they never think with the head on their shoulders. NEVER. He made his share of stupid mistakes, but I loved the way he owned up to them. Violet never really stood a chance with staying away from him, honestly…
She had been screwed over by a no-chance-to-get-in-the-NHL-hockey-player-wannabe in the past. I mean, dude was a complete tool. He had turned her against all hockey players, until an extremely confident, wouldn’t take no for an answer, Alex skated into her life.
This is a laugh out loud, no angst, and low drama story and just what I wanted and needed currently…
It was phenomenal.

Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura (Breaking Free #1) by Annie Hughes

Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura (Breaking Free #1)Breaking Free: Una Familia Segura by Annie Hughes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Amanda:
I was given an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t know where to start with my review of this book. Its summary wasn’t something I’d normally look for, but once I started reading it, I could not put it down. Breaking Free had a way of kidnapping all of my thoughts over the last few days. I was still thinking about it long after turning the last page.
Anna Rosa Castillo was not like any other 16 year old girl. She had been thrown more things than any person should have to go through in a lifetime. After being abused by her step-father since she was 9, and losing her mother because of her asshole step-father, Anna meets her biological father that she never knew.
This book was about the courage and strength Anna needed to overcome the challenges in her way, but ultimately, to make sure her stepfather never hurt anyone else again.
