Pretty Reckless

PRETTY RECKLESS BY L.J SHEN

Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

YA (TEENAGE/HIGHSCHOOL ROMANCE)

OMG or shall I say OMM(“oh My Marx”) what a brilliant , outstanding, literally unable to put down Book I have just read. Undoubtedly must read and definitely I would give this book honest 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 star
I glued with L.J. Shen ever since I read Vicious . I have read vicious and Dean story but yet I couldn’t get chance to read Jamie and melody but I know them almost completely because of the 1st two books in Sinners of saints series and I have a clear idea how their story could be.
There is no doubt that l.J SHEN is the best writer that literally slay you with her sharp words and make you whole again. This book is so far her The Best book . Very captivating from the beginning till end, nice and different story plot, it depicts how teenage children go through from different phases and how situations impact their behavior, struggle between parent and child relationship, and it’s an outstanding journey from hate to love and enemy to soulmate.

I am in love with both main characters, Daria Followhill and Penn scully both were from different end of the society one is rich and one is poor, one has everything a girl/boy can wish for and the other has nothing at all and daily have to struggle to fill their stomach and abusive environment, both of them were very strong by nature and fighter in every situation. Their character grows as much as the story proceed, from the 1st encounter they were attracted towards each other and their feelings develop through the span of time, they consider each other enemy but the thing is otherwise, no matter how much they thought they hate each other but found solace in each other company and finally love conquered them. I love their banter, how she become sassy and tricked him into what she wants, and i loved the way PENN called DARIA different names like scull eyes or hideous monster.
story is full of angst, anger, darker secrets, suspense, friendship, hate, jealousy, grudge, revengeful and vindictive nature that only Leeds to destruction. But it also has very cute and lovely moments that left you in awe and those lovely moments literally took your heart away, in other words, this is truly an emotional roller coaster ride.
As there is some negativity but you will find positivist as well as some funny exchange between characters specially between jamie and penn or between totholes and other kids and likewise whenever whereever came hotholes in the story.
and then there are parents MELODY and JAMIE who love their children unconditionally provide everything not only for their kids but also for those who were in needs. But somehow and sometimes they failed to understand one of them and simply ignore the one and let her as she wants to be, not understanding and miscommunication always create a big gap between them that left no choice for kid to confide in wrong company and this the reason they are used even they didn’t realized it, this book is a good lesson for the parents and kids also, and l.j has very nicely portray how they amend things between them.
There are not any flaws and very nicely and precisely written, very poetic and in the rhythm, every character is completely justified, i truly and immensely enjoyed the whole book. loved every bit of it.

Highly recommended for those who love to read good I mean the best romance book.

BLURB:

From USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author L.J. Shen comes an intense, high school enemies-to-lovers romance with a twist.

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart was completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good old unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.
In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.
Four years ago, he asked me to save all my firsts for him.
Now he lives across the hall, and I want nothing more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.

among ash and ember by dani rene

among ash and ember

Among Ash and Ember by Dani René

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


By the look of the book title , this book capture my interest,then I read the blurb which make me more intrigued to read the amazing story of “Among Ash and Ember”. And as soon as you read Prologue so then it become captivated. It was an emotional read, that at certain point some of the reader like me couldn’t control there emotions that made them cry. Over all I like the book but if I have to be honest, it was good but not The Best read bcoz it was lacking in some certain aspects. Like the bond between 2 twins brother was inadequate. There could be more scene to show their bonding and to show us that even though they were twins but totally different from each other. And 2nd the chemistry between Ash and Katrina was insufficient. Those two things made me lose two star otherwise I would love to give it 5star. Bcoz it has potential to be a 5 star read.

Plot of the story was very promising. The 1st half of the book was gripping. But as much as I delve into it it slowly loses its charm (to me at least because of the two reason I mentioned above )bcz there was mystery and secrets in the book that was suppose to hooked you till end and would be reveald in the last bit of the book but it was so obvious that anyone can guess what you will find at the end . But nevertheless it will make you keep going and last bit of the book was sooo emotional and angsty and realy that part specifically written very well that literally made me cry.
And now if we talk individually about the main three character Ashton , Katrina , Ember.
If Ashton was cold emotionless rude and brooding than on the other side Ember has totally opposite from his brother he was warm , friendly , caring and loving personality . And among them Kat is an innocent, lonely, poor , angelic beauty that the both brother couldn’t resist her charm and attracted towards her.

Over all book was worth to read . And all the characters were very loveable. And if you ask me that would I still recommend this book then I would say yes bcoz it won’t disappoint you.

BLURB:

Everything Katerina Nielsen knew burned to the ground when she was sixteen. She had nothing but memories to keep her warm at night. At eighteen, life throws her into an inferno and the only choice is to become someone else.

Until she becomes the interest of two strangers. 

They offer her a chance at a normal life. But she’s learned everything in life comes at a price and the cost of what they’re giving her may just burn her alive.

With the promise of a future she’s always wanted, she can’t refuse.

But what happens when a dark secret comes to light?
Will she rise from the ashes and embers, or will she burn?

“From a little spark may burst a flame.” ~ Dante Alighieri

Madeline~
Life’s lessons taught me well.
Dreams and happy endings are simply illusions our mind creates to soften life’s blows. I am no longer a little girl who believes in fairy tales or the existence of knights on white horses. 

While I never intended to return to Chicago or to see him again, the decision was out of my control. Now I am here, and I can’t or won’t allow the spark in his piercing blue eyes to reignite my heart the way his predatory gaze sets fire to my body.

Patrick Kelly is my past—a childish attraction. 

We are no longer children.

Patrick~

I may have started as nothing, but that is history. 

Today I’m part of the royalty—a duke, a lord, or perhaps a knight—anointed by and within the upper echelon of the Sparrow dynasty. The wide-eyed tourists entering Chicago have no idea of what lies beneath the surface as they stare at the shimmering lake and shiny buildings. 

Nothing is as it seems. 

Sparrows control everything—no one enters our realm without our knowledge or catches us unaware.

No one until her.

Now that she’s here, there is too much at stake to give in to the spark that seeing her rekindles within me. Surely if it were allowed to burn, the flames will consume both of our worlds, leaving only ashes. 

SPARK is book one of the WEB OF DESIRE trilogy that continues in FLAME and concludes in ASHES.

SYNOPSIS

From New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy comes a standalone holiday romance with a grumpy, holiday hating Christmas tree farmer and a woman who embraces the holiday season with her whole heart…

Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.

Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.

But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.

When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to change his mindset and help him spread Christmas cheer. Charlie finds Candice is too chatty, too sweet, too much. Do people like her really exist?

Why yes, yes they do. The more time they spend together—along with a few kisses under the mistletoe—the more they start to like each other. Hopefully Charlie can convince Candice he doesn’t have a heart that’s two sizes too small before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.

The Dating series are standalone romances with interconnecting characters. Each novel completely stands alone (no cliffhangers!) and can be read in any order, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!

BLURB:

Carrie Anderson––truth seeker, storyteller, journalist-at-large––is bad at social media and great at getting herself into trouble.

When she’s fired from her dream job for an ill-advised tweet, she has no other choice but to return to the small town where she grew up with her head hung low.

It’s temporary after all. She can work at her family’s bed and breakfast, shore up her finances, and get back to her life and her home in Los Angeles.

There’s only one not-so-little problem…the grouchy ex-NHL star making her rethink what home means.

Jake Turner––great at hockey, bad at people––is not a happy man.

Haunted by his past, all he wants is to disappear into obscurity, to get away from the scrutiny of the press he’s been under since turning pro at nineteen. But when the press finds him, disappearing is no longer an option.

Worse yet, the same journalist he’s trying to avoid is making him reconsider whether being forgotten is what he really wants.

“A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes.” ~ Mack David, et all for Cinderella

On the surface, the world glitters with all things only money can buy. My thoughts should be on the danger lurking beneath the surface. The money and power come from places and dealings the world pretends don’t exist. I’m here at this debutante ball as a representative of the new Sparrow underworld. The clock is ticking as alliances are formed and enemies eliminated.
There isn’t time to be distracted, and yet I catch a glimpse of the stunning woman across the room.
Surely, she’s untouchable to someone like me. Maybe she’s royalty or the daughter of a dignitary. Yet I’m drawn to her in a way I can’t describe. Her beautiful, seductive smile, bright emerald eyes, and luscious red hair beckon me until I find myself by her side.
Her voice sings to me while her laugh shines sunlight into my dark and dangerous world.
And then the clock strikes midnight and she’s gone.
I want more than that first kiss.

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes an intriguing and fun prologue to her newest romantic-suspense trilogy, Dangerous Web. DANGER’S FIRST KISS – A modern Cinderella story.
*This novella is set in the dangerous world of the Sparrow Webs.

**You do not need to read Web of Sin, Tangled Web, or Web of Desire to get caught up in this new dark-romance saga, Dangerous Web.

DANGER’S FIRST KISS is the prequel to book one of the DANGEROUS WEB trilogy.
