Review: Sightlines by Santino Hassell (The Community #3)

Chase put his hands on Elijah’s shoulders and yanked him in for a soft kiss. “Believe me, Elijah. I have a ton of fucking regrets about my life, and a lot of them revolve around not being real with you. I wasted a lot of time, and it might be too late.”Elijah caught Chase’s chin before he could pull away, and flashed a tenuous smile. “It’s not too late. We’re getting out of here.”
The end to a series--especially a well-loved and much-touted one--is oftentimes bittersweet, and such is the case for The Community. Santino Hassell's paranormal romance trilogy at its most basic, is fantastical fiction--an escape, if you would--but if you look closer...deeper...there are parallels between what the motley group of misfits experience and rebel against and certain events and situations in today's life and times. For whatever reason you have for perusing the title, the bottom line remains cl…

Character Flaws by Sierra Hill Release Date: October 17, 2017
About Character Flaws Joey They say you never get a second chance at a first impression. That is, unless you’re my gorgeous temporary neighbor.
My first impression of Theo Crawford was anything but wonderful. He was discourteous, anti-social, and a drunken mess.
My second impression wasn’t much better when he inconsiderately woke me on a Sunday morning.
But by my third impression, my views toward Theo began to soften. Maybe he isn’t as bad as he seems.
And now? Well, let’s just say my defective heart doesn’t care that he’s gay, because I’ve fallen for him.
Theo Wait, what? 
I’m not gay. 
Where’d she get that impression?

Review: Character Flaws by Sierra Hill

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Character Flaws is a standalone romantic comedy and my first read by Sierra Hill. The synopsis for this book had me thinking that the main characters--twenty-four-year-old high school teacher Josephine Hughes and twenty-six-year-old stage actor and aspiring playwright Theodore Crawford, better known as Joey and Theo, respectively--weren't on the best of terms, but it turns out that wasn't even that big of a deal in terms of the story. Basically, Joey has a gay neighbor, Patrick Donaldson, whom she's good friends with. When Theo, a friend of Pat's, dog-sits for the two months Pat will be overseas, Joey strikes up her own friendship with him, even though he didn't exactly leave her with a great first impression (hello, hangover). Things are easy and relaxed between the two of them, but Joey develops feelings for Theo--very non-platonic feelings. It's a recipe f…

Dignity (The Breaking Point #2) by Jay Crownover Release Date: October 17, 2017
About Dignity Looks can be deceiving.
I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.
I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.
I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead. 
I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.
That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard …

Review: Dignity by Jay Crownover (The Breaking Point #2)

Image
Note: This ARC was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.
Dignity is the second novel in bestselling author Jay Crownover's The Breaking Point series and it's got two unforgettable main characters who've lived in the periphery of society for years, preferring not to be noticed by those around them. The thing is, computer genius Snowden Stark and thief Noe Lee prove to be unforgettable once you cross paths with them. When Noe decided breaking and entering Stark's residence was a good idea, she was lucky to have left with her loot and life intact. The last person she should turn to when she finds herself in dire straits shouldn't be the one she had recently stolen from, but Noe needs the best at what he does and that is exactly what Stark is. However, he turns her away, and the next he hears, she's been abducted. With guilt eating at him, Stark is willing to do whatever it takes--even make a deal with the devil--in order for him…

Review: Ruthless King by Meghan March (Mount #1)

“You’re not going to die tonight, baby. I swear. Give that man what he doesn’t even know he wants—which is everything that’s you—and you’ll be just fine. Now, get going. Put that armor on and go slay yourself a dragon of a man.”
The first Meghan March book I'd ever read was Beneath This Mask in January 2015, and since then, I've read every single book she's released. She written both dark and light romances, but I'm going to be absolutely honest here--her Beneath series, which recently ended with Beneath These Truths in August of this year, remains my favorite. When I think of quintessential Meghan March, I think of her Beneath books. I'm not saying her other books weren't good reads; they were. But there was something extra-special about the series that launched her career. I wouldn't call it "perfect"--personally, there were books within the series that I liked more than …
