Review: The Good Girl


The Good Girl
The Good Girl by Dawn Robertson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Where do I start?? Just wow... I need 6 stars for this one!

Lily White is the Master of Darkness and Dawn Robertson held her own. This book was fabulous. The only thing "negative" I can find is that it ended--I need more...I have a major book hang over and I already feel sorry for the next few books I read because The Good Girl is going to be a hard act to follow.

I love a dark read. It is no secret that I favor them. And the darker they are, the more taboo, the crazier the content, the more I like them. I want a good roller coaster thrill that takes me on a ride that will make my heart spike and my stomach drop, and above all it needs to floor me. For plot twists to come out of no where and shake me up because I did not see it coming. And The Good Girl delivered.

Gabriel is a very unique character. And to be honest, Iam struggling to find a way to describe him without giving his secrets away. Trust me when I tell you that you want to experience it on your own. What I can say, is that he is down right mean. And some of the stuff that floats through his mind will have your jaw hitting the floor and wondering where in the world the author comes up with this stuff. Lily kinda scares me--- I seriously hope she is not a serial killer disguised as an author, but I would love to crawl into her head and hang out, just to see where some of this stuff comes from.

Eleni was a fabulous leading lady. I adored her. A carefree, rebellious, alcoholic woman, with no real future, no family and no real friends. But she has a resolve to live that is rare in people that have had the kind of life and upbringing that she had. She uses alcohol to numb the pain while she lives a wild life of carefree partying. But, through it all, she is a self sufficient, functioning alcoholic. She makes some really bad decisions that alter her life, including trusting the wrong man.

Gabriel and Eleni are more alike than they want to admit. And their tragic child hoods bond them in ways that either one of them ever expected. And as you read along, watching the story come together, if you are anything like me, you will wonder how they do not end up killing each other.

Gabriel wants submission and adoration. Eleni wants freedom. She is not the kind of girl to submit to anyone. She is the master of her own life and leader of her destiny. She is strong and violently independent. Gabriel wants to break her. Eleni refuses to be broken. Gabriel wants to own her, she refuses to be owned. Gabriel wants to break her down and then build her into the woman he wants her to be, but Eleni refuses to be broken. But Gabriel always wins....

Reading along as these two strong willed people battle it out to see who comes out on top, will have you turning pages telling yourself "just one more chapter" ... ummm, yeah, about that-- don't even try to lie to yourself...because you will read and read until you fall asleep with your kindle in your hands and your husband comes and gently wakes you to go to bed--yep, it happened-->twice.

The Good Girl is going to take you places you are not expecting-- So get ready, buckle in, and enjoy the ride. And prepare for an ending you will never see coming.....

Review: Toxic: Logan Story by KA Robinson (Book 4 in the Torn Series)





Toxic: Logan's Story
Toxic: Logan's Story by K.A. Robinson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Ok, so I have to confess --- Toxic is the first KA Robinson book Ive read *hangs head in shame*

I stayed away from this series because Iam generally very anti love triangle-- I hate them. But, after reading Toxic, I must say that I am going to have to go back and read the first 3 books in the series.

Ok, so moving on-- I had not read the first 3 books, and I must also confess that I didn't realize I had signed up for the review part of this blog tour. So, when I realized I had, I dove in. I was afraid I ws going to be confused as to what was going on, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Not only could I keep up, but had I not known there were other books that Toxic was based off of, I never would of even guessed it.

Toxic is Logan's story seen through his eyes. And I tell you, my heart just broke for him. I wanted to be the one to cuddle up to him and make it all better. And I wanted to punch Chloe a time or two. Talk about leading the poor man on!!! And Logan was such a sweet soul, with the biggest heart. And I loved the way he gave himself over 100% to the people he cared about. And although he wore his heart on his sleeve, he was not a pansy. He was still strong with alpha tendencies, and a plan for life. He had to learn the hard way that life does not always work out as planned, but I love the way he just kept going and did what he had to do in order to come out on top.

Jade, loved her!! She is seriously one of my favorite leading ladies ever. Strong, independent and snarky. As a drummer for a rock band, she had to hold her own with the boys, and she gave as good as she got. She was not about to be ran on top of, and since she had to prove she could survive in the boys world, I found it awesome that she did not become bitter or hardened. She could hold her own but yet she was still a lady. She is the kind of person I would want to hang out with. She was loyal, and she had your back. But it was her forgiving nature with Logan (and the band) that made me really love her. Her ability to recognize that people are not perfect, that as humans we make mistakes, our minds are affected by the lives we have lived, and when emotions are high, we can let them take over and do and say things we instantly regret. She had this ability to see past the hate that people use as a defense when they are angry, scared and hurt, and honestly I think everyone could learn from her.

Toxic is about second chances. Its about fate. And how we may have a plan for our lives, but we can't see the end. How everything happens for a reason, even if we dont understand the reason or like it. It's about discovering yourself, your potential and how to rise above all the crap that you have had to live through. That being a survivor means victory, but being a victim means being a slave to the past.

I love how Logan and Jade heal each other. A relationship born out of dire circumstances that bloomed into a lifetime of love, commitment, and loyalty. And I loved it!!!

add-to-goodreads-button31

Sometimes you reach a point where you just can’t take any more – a breaking point some call it. The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didn’t just break, it exploded like a magazine firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47. Literally. I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave. Now, I’m a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira and that was my story.

Translucent is one woman's story of breaking free, starting over, and learning to trust again through willful submission.

Release Blitz -- Paradise Coast by Renee Novelle

Welcome to Naples, Florida! Where the beaches are perfect and every day is a vacation. But in this small town paradise that serves as a playground for the rich and elite, not everything is as beautiful as it first appears on the surface.

Offering an irreverent, and often sarcastic, glimpse into all the sexy scandals that go on behind closed doors, Paradise Coast, delves into the shadows of another way of life and proves that money doesn’t always buy happiness. Following five couples as they navigate their way through love, expectations and revenge, this story explores how different personalities react when faced with unsavory realizations about their current states of affairs.

Authors Note: This is not a romance. There are no alpha heroes who swoop in to save the day, or brooding bad boys who are easily converted into marriage material. If that’s what you’re searching for, then keep looking. Inside these pages is an unparalleled drama with many happy endings, but not so many happily-ever-afters. At least, not in the traditional sense... It’s a story about quick-witted women who find creative ways of empowering themselves and rising above their conflicting situations.

Blog Tour -- Tryst by Cambria Hebert


Sometimes all a girl needs is a little fling…

Talie Ronson needs a vacation.

From life. 

Since she caught her cheating, loser husband in bed with his assistant, her life has been on a steady spiral—right into hell. Her car’s a junker, her job sucks, and her perfect, gorgeous sister likes to brag about her wonderful life every time they “do” lunch. 

In an effort to salvage what’s left of her life and her sanity, she takes the advice of her kooky best friend and takes off to Topsail Island. A week at the beach, alone, is exactly what she needs to recharge, regroup, and relax. 

Only, her alone time is about to get derailed. 

Gavin Palmer’s favorite activity is walking around in his boxers and eating junk food. He and his neighbors have an understanding. They stay out of his business and he stays out of theirs. He lives at the beach, not for vacation, but for isolation. He’s had enough of people to last him a lifetime. 


Gavin’s isolation is interrupted when his normally quiet neighbor starts disturbing his peace. He stomps across the sand to give the guy a piece of his mind… only it isn’t a guy. 

It’s Talie. 

She’d maddening, nosy, and talks too much. 

But she’s hot and her bedroom eyes have him thinking maybe he’s had enough solitude. Maybe a week of company is exactly what he needs. 

Maybe what they both need is a no-strings-attached tryst.
