Something About You {a review}

0


Something About You by J. Nathan is now available! This new adult romance features two college students who could not be more opposite. It also involves a little blackmailing between our hero and heroine. So be prepared for that!

Something About You takes place at Cranmore University in Colorado. It is there that we first meet our characters. It is the start of a new school year, and Shay is getting settled into the dorms. The very first night there, she is greeted by the neighbor playing their music extremely loud. So she goes over and asks them to turn it down. That doesn't happen. But it is at this moment when she meets Kason for the first time. That introduction goes about as well as you can imagine. Needless to say the music becomes even louder. Fast forward a bit, and it turns out Kason is in the same physics class as Shay. She avoids him like the plague. A bit later, Shay attends a party with her roommate. Well it turns out that party is at Kason's. Shay drinks more than she should, and ends up crashing at the house. In a bed. With Kason. She's mortified. Kason leads her to believe that something happened between them, and he has it on video. Kason tells her he'll delete the video IF she tutors him in physics. And that is where this opposites attract romance begins.

Now it's been forever and a day since I've been in college, but life in the dorms doesn't really change much. So reading that Shay's experience with her neighbor had me chuckling a little bit. I found myself really enjoying the relationship between Kason and Shay. From the first impression, to the avoidance, to the blackmailing, to the hate, to the shift in their relationship, to what it ultimately becomes. I also found myself rooting for their relationship to work out. I mean a geek and a snowboarder? That deserves cheering on! Especially with all that Shay has been through in her life. She hasn't had it easy at all, so for someone to come along and sweep her off her feet? Yes. Just yes. Granted it isn't all a walk in the park. Oh no. These two have their moments where things are not all hunky dory, and you start to wonder if they'll get their HEA. All that Shay and Kason went through though was worth it for their relationship to become what it does. I was all in on this book, and could not put it down. Also, I am seriously hoping that J. Nathan writes another book featuring Kason's sister. I need that book!

If new adult romances featuring an athlete, a geek, the opposites attract trope, and/or the hate to love trope are things you enjoy, then go pick up Something About You!

Thank you for reading my thoughts,
Laura



Something About You by J. Nathan is now live!


Kason
I'm what you call a god, a superstar, a winner.

Being a professional snowboarder is my purpose in life.

I know exactly how to get what I want and I'm good at most everything I do.

I'm only at Cranmore University to appease my parents.

But, if I want to graduate, I need to pass physics.

And, since failing is not an option, blackmailing a nerd who hates me is my last resort.

Shay
I'm what some call a geek, a nerd, a loser.

And I don't care.

I know who I am.

I know where I come from.

And, I know exactly where I'm going.

That's why I'm at Cranmore University.

To get my degree and begin my life.

Only, that plan gets quickly derailed thanks to an unbecoming video, a blackmailing snowboarder, and his ex who's hell bent on making my life miserable.

They say everyone comes into your life for a reason.

What happens when that person is the opposite of what you want...

But exactly what you need?

Red Thorns {a review}

0

OH MY WORD! I was not prepared for Red Thorns by Rina Kent. I mean, I knew the general premise of the book but yeah. Not prepared. 

How to even describe Red Thorns...Sebastian, our male lead, is the captain of his university's football team, and is a popular person. He is also the grandson of a former senator. His family is well known. Sebastian also has a dark side, but he tries his best to keep it in check. He's doing well until he accepts a bet that involves Naomi. Naomi is a bit of a loner, she is asocial, an artist, a college student, and even though she hates every minute of it she's also a cheerleader. Naomi also struggles with events from her past, and the fact that she has no clue who her father is. Anyway one day Reina (the head cheerleader) comes up with this plan to eventually hurt Naomi, and she's enlisting Sebastian to take the lead. And Sebastian decides to go for it. What starts as a game of cat and mouse quickly turns into more. Naomi quickly becomes more to Sebastian. And Red Thorns tells that story. Red Thorns also has a secondary storyline going on regarding Naomi's father, and who he is. Red Thorns is the first part of a duet, so the book does end on a cliffhanger. And what a cliffhanger it is.

When I read the note, at the beginning of the book, from Rina Kent I have to admit I was a bit nervous. I can handle some dark romance, but the fact that this had consensual non-consent was new for me. I didn't know what to make of it at first. But as the story progressed, it was steamy scenes between two consenting adults, and their choices are their choices. No one else is getting hurt. While that was a lot for me to initially taken, that was just a small part of the story. There is also the lingering thought of "when is this bet/dare going to be revealed?" and "how will Naomi handle the news?". Then, when that was revealed, oofta. Yeah. That happened. Also, what does Reina and her crew have against Naomi? I'm not understanding that relationship. Moving away from Sebastian and Naomi though, who is Akira? I mean other than Naomi's penpal. I have thoughts on that, but will have to wait for book 2 for answers. Then there is Naomi's mom, their relationship, mom's health issues, things from mom's past, and mom's business. How is this all going to play out? Oh, and that black van that Naomi thought was following her? Um, yeah, what's up with that? One last thing, Reina! I need to go back and read Yellow Thorns to know her origin story, but I am also really hoping that Black Thorns answers a question for me. I really enjoyed the book, and actually liked it more than I thought I might given the darkness of the relationship between Sebastian and Naomi. I am eagerly anticipating Black Thorns so that I can know how this all ends. I will say, I chose Red Thorns because it was sports romance, but that was such a minor part in this new adult romance.

If you enjoy dark romance, the, Red Thorns to your TBR list! Just make sure to have Black Thorns on hand so you can dive in immediately. I was not so lucky, so I'm sitting here waiting for July 8.

Thank you for reading my thoughts,
Laura

A bet turned into a disaster.

Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.

Rich. Handsome. Bastard.

Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him.

Not me.

At least, not until he made a move on me.

See, I thought I was stronger than Sebastian’s charms.

I thought I could survive being his target.

I thought wrong.

Little did I know that he will make my most twisted fantasies come true.

Fantasies I didn’t know existed...

Wild Mistake {cover reveal}

0

 

Kim Loraine has revealed the cover for
Wild Mistake, Wilde Horse Ranch 2!

Releasing July 26, 2021


It seemed like a good idea at the time.
A two-week Hawaiian vacation with a beautiful woman. What could go wrong?

Well, when that woman is my best friend's little sister, the answer is—everything.

Mackenzie Langston has been in my life since we were kids, and until now I didn't see past her family and our friendship. So when she tells me she's sworn off men for the next year after a bad breakup, I jump at the chance to have some company on the vacation I'd booked for me and my cheating ex. But Mack's all grown up and we're both on the rebound.

In a romantic suite with just one bed, the weather isn't the only thing that gets hot.

Turns out, what I thought was a good idea might end up one big mistake. Especially when my heart's on the line.
