Review - Worth It (Forbidden Men #6) By Linda Kage

25251169Title: Worth It 
Series: Forbidden Men #6
Author: Linda Kage
Genre: New adult, romance
Published: 25 August 2015
Format: ebook
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
Source: Author, in exchange for an honest review.
I fell in love once.
It was amazing. She was amazing. Life was amazing.
I lived for each time I could see her, and nothing else mattered, not that our families were enemies, our time together was forbidden, or we had to meet in secret.
Our love could conquer all.
Until it didn't.
So I was ripped away from the love of my life and shoved into hell, forced to continue without her.
It shattered me, broke the best parts of me, left me permanently damaged.Or so I thought.
Years later, I swear history’s trying to repeat itself because she’s back in my life, and I’m just as drawn to her as I was before. But I'm older and wiser now, and I know she should stay away from a worthless piece of ex-con like me.
So, I will not let her in. I absolutely refuse to hurt her. I will keep her away.
Then again, sometimes risking your greatest fear to get to a smile makes everything worth it, and besides, I’m not sure I can resist her, anyway.
This is the story of how Felicity Bainbridge changed my life forever, starting one summer day long ago after I was forced to change a dirty diaper...

My Comments Have Disappeared

So today I have just installed Disqus as a commenting system on my blog, replacing the old Google + system (which I despise with a passion). BUT the thing is ALL OF MY OLD COMMENTS HAVE DISAPPEARED!

The Life Of Having A Book Buddy That Lives Overseas





Earlier on this month my bestest friend (Kyra over at Blog Of A Bookaholic) in the whole wide world immigrated to England! And I don't miss her at all...KIDDING, of course I do. Or am I? Anyways my best friend is the person who introduced me to reading, she's who I act weird with and of course my book buddy. But what do you do once your books buddy has left?! Well you enter the denial stage of course, pfft. OBVIOUS.

Review - How To Love By Katie Cotugno

17332564Title: Hot To Love
Series: None
Author: Katie Cotugno 
Genre: YA contemporary
Publication: 1 October 2013
Format: Hardcover, 389 pages
Rating: 5/5 Stars

Before: 
Reena Montero has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember: as natural as breathing, as endless as time. But he's never seemed to notice that Reena even exists until one day, impossibly, he does. Reena and Sawyer fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town without a word, leaving a devastated—and pregnant—Reena behind. 
After: Almost three years have passed, and there's a new love in Reena's life: her daughter, Hannah. Reena's gotten used to being without Sawyer, and she's finally getting the hang of this strange, unexpected life. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. Reena doesn't want anything to do with him, though she'd be lying if she said Sawyer's being back wasn't stirring something in her. After everything that's happened, can Reena really let herself love Sawyer LeGrande again?
