Add to Goodreads

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.
We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.
Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose.
…And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.
He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.
So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.
My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.
But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.
What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?
I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

*This book contains characters from the Manwhore series but can be read as a complete standalone.

Summary:

Add to Goodreads

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.

After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.

All I wanted was for him to come back to me.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…

I prayed for him to be mine.

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

My Review: 

Review also posted on Goodreads

ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

Gracelyn Harris feels hopeless and broken after numerous miscarriages which caused her fifteen years of marriage with her husband Finley to fall apart. Coping with the pain of losing her babies and her husband is too much. She returns to her hometown in Chester for the summer in Judy’s (her younger sister) and the pain doubles when she found out Finley cheated on her.

It’s easy to sympathize with Grace and I truly feel sorry she’s experiencing this. She becomes lonelier and lost.  Being one of the pastor’s daughter, townspeople expected her to be a perfect role model. When gossip spreads about her and Finley, people can be judgmental based on what they heard. Then, she meets the town’s bad boy  Jackson Emery.

“It’s easy to judge others from afar. It’s easy to look outside your world and make blanket statements and judgents on who those people are. Because when you see others’ flaws, you somewhat justify that your flaws are better than theirs. But when you zoom in, when you truly look at the person beside you, you’ll see many of the same things. Hope. Love. Fear. Anger. Once you zoom in, you realize  we are all similar in so many ways. We all bleed red and even monster’s hearts can break. Just gotta remember to always zoom in.” 

Jackson and his alcoholic father were treated like outcasts. Ever since his father caused a scene inside the church, people became harsh on them and no one ever cares about their well-being. Grace sees beyond the monster they labelled on him. He’s a lonely guy but genuine and loyal by default.  It’s impossible not to love Jackson. The way he cares for his father and his dog Tucker. You will just fall in love because of his unconditional love for the people he cares. Despite of his rudeness, Grace was nothing but patient on him. That’s one of the qualities I love about her aside from her resilience, kindness, sincerity and transparency.

These characters are flawed but they all have an astonishing character developments. Even the side characters who got in my nerves like Grace’s mother, Loretta Harris and Jackson’s father, Mike Emery. Loretta will get more on your nerves than Mike. She’s so manipulative and she gives more importance on their family’s reputation than her daughter’s feelings. Her audacity on convincing Grace to fix her marriage with her cheating husband was unnerving. OMG. *Rolling my eyes* I have minimum tolerance on people who weren’t practicing what they preach. However, hearing their own story toned down my anger. Somehow, they redeemed themselves became a better parent to their respective children.

Disgrace is about forgiveness, grief, self-discovery, healing and love. It’s truly one of the best emotional books I’ve ever read.  It’s challenging to write a review because it messed up my emotions. I SOBBED. Jackson and Grace’s story  is raw, beautiful and emotionally heartfelt. I LOVE IT! It wrecked and mended my heart at the same time, it’s freaking worth it.

Add to Goodreads

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, I became her darkest storm.

Summary [Goodreads]:

Beauty and the Beastly Billionaire . . .
Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone. Yet his brothers insist he take a greater role in the family business. They’ve hired him ten personal assistants-and Eli sent each one packing as fast as possible. But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.

Isabella Sawyer’s employment agency can’t afford to lose Eli Crane’s business. Her plan: to personally take on the role of his PA, and secure her reputation with the wealthy elite in Chicago. But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won’t rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .

My Review:

Review also posted on Goodreads

We’re down on the last Crane Brother, Elijah Crane. He’s a former Marine who’s rough on the edges. While serving his country, an incident change his life when a grenade blasted ending up him losing his leg and lives of his fellow mates. What he’d been through was difficult, grieving for loss, suffering a mild PTSD and coping with disability. It affected him emotionally making him brooding, sad and irritable. Since he’s discharged, his brothers encouraged him to participate in their family business and they hired assistants to help him. Unfortunately, all of them drove away by his rudeness… except for one lady.

For all the well trained and efficient assistants she sent were fired, the owner of the Sable Concierge, Isabella Sawyer decided to be Elijah’s personal assistant so as not to lose her long time wealthy client. Given with her experience, she thinks she can handle the bastard billionaire. He can fire her multiple times but she’s too driven to quit easily.

When pot meets kettle, things can get more interesting. I have a soft spot for brooding heroes. They’re mysterious, flawed and closed off but they can surprise you with their true persona. Elijah is a sweet, edgy and romantic man. Despite of his flaws and vulnerability, he truthfully expressed his feelings. I love his character growth throughout this book as he dealt with his personal issues. Among the female protagonists in this series, Isabella Sawyer is my favorite. She’s fierce, independent, passionate and enthusiastic. I love she exhibits patience and understanding towards Eli. They may have arguments every now and then but it’s amusing to see Eli met his match. The chemistry between them develops with intensity and their intimate moments blazed with hotness.

This book is wonderfully written, emotionally stirring and worth devouring. I enjoyed Elijah and Isabella’s story very much.

TOP 5 FAVORITE LINES FROM TBB

#5~ Isabella Sawyer’s smart-aleck remark when Eli fires her for the umpteenth time:

 “Apologies, Eli, but I’m not changing my shoes.” She came into his office, her hips swaying with each sure step she took toward him.

“Fine. Then you’re fired.”

“Oh, no, not again.”

#4~ Merina, the heroine from The Bastard Billionaire shows up as yet another feisty woman who refuses to bow to Eli’s gruffness.

“I can go out into public, you know,” he grumbled, setting the beer bottle next to his plate—on the table, no coaster, thank you very much. “You guys don’t have to come in here and serve me.”

He was skilled at his new role of miserable bastard, and since everyone expected it now, he was determined to excel.

“Oh but we do, Lord Crane.” Merina smiled demurely as she leaned over and handed him a glass.

#3~ I loved this line after Eli and Isa had sex—his honesty cracked me up!

“I like this.” She touched the corner of his mouth. “I’ve been trying to get you to smile since I started working here.”

“Well now you know how to do it.”

#2~ Bold Isabella knows how to ask for what she wants!

“Is kissing you in my marching orders for tomorrow night?” he asked, his eyes picking up a trace of heat.

She wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity. No way. No how.

“Yes,” she answered. “Need to practice?”

#1~ Eli’s worry that he didn’t have what it took is my favorite line in the book.

He’d done what he needed to be a good soldier.

Now that he wasn’t a soldier, he wasn’t sure what it took to be a good man.

Summary (Goodreads):

The sizzling second installment of the White House series, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

We fell in love during the campaign.
The stakes were high.
Reputations could have been ruined.
Scandal hovered over us like a cloud.
Now the man I love is the President of the United States of America.
And its not my vote he is after.
He wants it all.
My heart. My body. My soul.
He wants me by his side.
In the White House.
Normalcy will be gone from my life, privacy forgotten.
I am only twenty three. I just wanted to play a part in history. But it seems like history wasn’t done with me. The part where I lost my heart to Matthew Hamilton? It was only the beginning…

My Review: 

Review also posted on Goodreads

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I buddy read this book with my lovely sis Pearl. 🙂

Matt Hamilton is officially the President of the United States. It’s been two months since the Presidential election and the last time he saw Charlotte. She left the country to have some space after he won. Given with huge responsibilities to serve the country, there are sacrifices must be done. He thought being on a relationship with her would make things difficult while he’s the President. However, letting go of the woman he fell in love with is a mistake. He’s determined to win her back and this time, he’ll never lose her again.

Charlotte Wells returned and was invited to attend the Inaugural ball. It made her miserable not to be with him. When she saw him in the event, it brought back all the moments they shared. It turns out the feeling is mutual and they want to work their relationship out. He wants her as his First Lady and the last woman he’ll ever loved.

In this book, we get to see their life in the White House and their sweet, sexy romantic moments. Oh my god, the sexual tension between them is SO FREAKING GOOD I LOVE IT. I love the direction of the story and I find it better than the first book. I’m so invested with it that it kept me awake at night. I love their character and relationship development. Both are admirable, passionate and responsible as public servants and in private life. They have a wholesome relationship by working as a team and maturely handling tough situations with patience and understanding.

Commander in Chief is a wonderful conclusion to Matt and Charlotte’s story. They got a happy ending they deserved and there are no loose ends. Hands down to Katy Evans I can’t wait for the upcoming books in this series!

Goodreads Rating: 4.43 / 5 stars

My Rating: 5 / 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, Realistic

Publication Date: November 1st, 2016

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Summary (Goodreads):

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
