The first page, heck the first chapter of this book was super intense. WHAT A HOOK! I was somewhat let down after that first chapter. The Girl in the Headlines had so so so much potential. The blurb sounds like a true crime lover’s dream. But actually it was a true crime lover’s nightmare. There […]
To get everyone up to speed, my love for Claire Contreras knows no bounds. I rave about her on every review, so here we are again. (Side note: this book is technically a standalone, however, the book before it was called The Heartbreaker, and follows the oldest brother of 3, who is mentioned in this […]
“You are about to enter a world unlike that which you know.” KA Tucker has been a favorite author of mine since I first stepped into Ten Tiny Breaths. I read everything she writes. I have even read her previously published fantasy series, Causal Enchantment. I can’t even describe my excitement over her diving into […]
Eventually everyone will get tired of hearing me talk about how amazing Claire Contreras is, but I’m not going to stop. For those of you who don’t know, she is one of my will-read-anything-they write, favorite authors. So lets jump into her new release, The Heartbreaker. I don’t often venture into sports romance. It is […]
Alice Gunnersley and Alfie Mack sleep just a few feet apart from one another. They talk for hours every day. And they’ve never seen each other face-to-face.
After being in terrible accidents, the two now share the same ward as long-term residents of St. Francis’s Hospital. Although they don’t get off to the best start, the close quarters (and Alfie’s persistence to befriend everyone he meets) brings them closer together. Pretty soon no one can make Alice laugh as hard as Alfie does, and Alfie feels like he’s finally found a true confidante in Alice. Between their late night talks and inside jokes, something more than friendship begins to slowly blossom between them.
But as their conditions improve and the end of their stay draws closer, Alfie and Alice are forced to decide whether it’s worth continuing a relationship with someone who’s seen all of the worst parts of you, but never seen your actual face.
A tender novel of healing and hope, Before I Saw You reminds us that connections can be found even in the most unexpected of places—and that love is almost always blind.
HMM. This one is hard to review. Tagged as a feminist mash-up of The Lost Boys and The Craft, I knew I had to read this. Those are two of my favorite cult classics. And it turns out its easy too see the resemblances…. Wayyyyyy to easy. Like, identical in many ways to The Lost […]
Again, actual footage of me when Claire announced a 2nd book with Secret Societies (this is a throwback to my original review of the first book in the series, Half Truths <- click to read) : I could start this post off by raving about how amazing and wonderful and talented and pretty Claire Contreras […]
Its no secret that Claire Contreras is one of my favorite authors. One of the things I love about her is how fearless she is – in her life and in her writing. In her romance novels, she has covered suspense/thriller, sports, second chance romance, mafia…. And is all over the new adult and contemporary […]
