The Negotiator by Avery Flynn!!!!

The Negotiator by Avery Flynn


Wanted: Personal Buffer

Often snarly, workaholic executive seeks “buffer” from annoying outside distractions AKA people. Free spirits with personal boundary issues, excessive quirks, or general squeamishness need not apply. Salary negotiable. Confidentiality required.

Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a “buffer” from their marriage-obsessed mom, but he didn’t need a waiting room filled with “candidates” to further distract him. (Thanks, bro.) But when a sexy job applicant shooes his mom and the socialite in tow out of his office, Sawyer sees the genius of the plan. And the woman. In fact, Miss Clover Lee might just get the fastest promotion in history, from buffer to fake fiancĂ©…

This “free-spirit” might look like hot sunshine and lickable rainbows, but she negotiates like a pitbull. Before Sawyer knows what hit him, he’s agreed to give up Friday nights for reality tv, his Saturdays for flea markets (why buy junk still baffles him), his Tuesdays and Thursdays for “date nights” (aka panty-losing opportunities if he plays his cards right). And now she wants lavender bath salts and tulips delivered every Monday? 

Yup, she’s just screwing with him. Good thing she’s got this non-negotiatable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…


Review:
Quick and fun read with tons of sass and strong women!! I loved this book so much! I was laughing out loud constantly it has amazing writing and character development! I love Clover and her strong will, sassiness, and confidence. Sawyer was adorable and similar to more guys than they would like to admit with the kind of movies he enjoys ;) It's a must read, and I will be reading more by Avery Flynn!!!

Drunk Dial By Penelope Ward!!!!

Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward


It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. 

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. 

I didn’t think he’d call me back. 

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. 

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. 

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.


Review: 

This is my second Penelope Ward novel and it did not disappoint! This novel is hilarious, sad, hot, and real. I loved getting to see all of the emotional secrets come out slowly throughout the book, while still keeping tons of laugh out loud and steamy moments. I loved getting to know these characters and all of their flaws because the flaws are what make people beautiful. There are some heavy topics that are brought up in here but I think the author did a great job talking about them without making it offensive. (I didn't experience these things first hand, but the way they were explained made sense). It had a great story and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance with a bit of secrets! <3 must read. Great ending!

The Specialists Series by Shannon Greenland!!!!

The Specialists Series got a makeover, and it is to die for!!!! <3 Below is each book, What they're about and their brand new covers!! They're amazing you will love them all!! I know I did! <3


Model Spy (The Specialists #1) by Shannon Greenland

Teen genius Kelly James is in a lot of hot water. A whiz with computers, she agreed to help her college RA, David, uncover some top-secret information. After all, she doesn't have many friends and David has always been nice to her. It doesn't hurt that he's supercute and irresistible, too. All she has to do is hack into the government's main computer system. 

But a few hours later, her whole life changes. She is caught and taken in for questioning, only this isn't your run-of-the-mill arrest. Rather than serve a juvenile detention sentence, she accepts the option to change her name and enlist in a secret government spy agency that trains teen agents to go undercover. As if that wasn't overwhelming enough, she discovers that David works for this agency as well!

And before she even begins to understand what is going on, she's sent on her first mission as an undercover model. And who better to partner with than David himself!



Review: 

Filled with spies, family bonding, smart young people, and a bit of lingering romance this book will hold onto you until the end<3. It's laugh out loud funny through and through with tons of moments mixed in to keep you on the edge of your seat. This is a book that will leave you begging for more, but luckily there's more for you to devour. Must read<3

Down to the Wire (The Specialists #2) by Shannon Greenland

GiGi is back, this time teaming up with electronics specialist Frankie, aka Wirenut, for their next mission. Wirenut has an uncanny knack for breaking into the highest-level security systems that stump even the experts. Which is precisely why he was recruited by the Specialists. So when wealthy entrepreneur Octavias Zorba hires the Specialists to recover a stolen neurotoxin, the head of the Specialists is sure that Wirenut is perfect for the job. But there’s a catch. The computer-coded hints that will lead to the neurotoxin are hidden in a few precious artifacts. And when these hints are found, there is limited time to get them decoded or they will disappear forever. But as GiGi and Wirenut begin their mission, they suddenly find themselves on a fast-paced hunt for the criminal, with time quickly running out….





Review: 

I loved getting to see more of GiGi's story, but also getting to know Wirenut a lot more than we got to see in book one! I loved the character development and the slow reveals from start to finish. There's a hint of mystery as you try to figure out what's going to happen and what had already happened. With a few darker moments it still has all the same aspects as book one making love the characters more and more as you learn more about them <3

The Winning Element (The Specialists #3) by Shannon Greenland

Give me a...boom?!

With two successful missions under her belt, GiGi is finally feeling comfortable and confident with the Specialists. But then she learns about Eduardo Villaneuva, a notorious chemical smuggler currently at large. Not only is he a present danger, but he was responsible for the deaths of GiGi's parents. The government has been trying to track him down for years, and with GiGi's fierce determination (and TL's help), the Specialists are hired to capture him. And this time, GiGi's in charge of the mission. Only, she can't do this alone. She needs Beaker's chemistry expertise. But when their cover has to be cheerleaders at a national cheerleading competition, Goth-girl Beaker is not too pleased.

With personality conflicts, mission challenges, and the demanding schedule of the cheerleading competition, Beaker and GiGi find it difficult to focus on the task at hand. But with all that's at stake, can they put these issues aside and apprehend Eduardo, or will GiGi's opportunity to stop him be blown to bits?


Review: 


Oh man! The cheerleading aspect of the storyline was Amazing! There were tons of moments that had my laughing. Especially putting those two characters together to accomplish this task. I loved getting to see GiGi and Beaker hash it out and the outcome that followed. There were still plenty of intense moments of what's going to happen next! PLUS it has a great twist at the end of the book that will leave you begging to read the next!

Native Tongue (The Specialists #4) by Shannon Greenland

GiGi is back again and on a brandnew mission in the fourth book in this original series Lovable GiGi is pairing up with expert linguist Darren, aka Parrot, on a mission to South America. When a centuries-old vase is found in a cave full of hieroglyphics, it is discovered that this vase was important to at least fifteen different North American and South American Indian tribes. And now all fifteen nations want it back. They are meeting in Rutina, South America, to decide who gets the vase. Enter the Specialists, and Parrot who will go as the official translator. And when no one can decode the ancient cave writings, not even the elders of each nation, GiGi comes to the rescue. Of course there's a hitch. One of the tribal chiefs attending the meeting in Rutina is connected to Parrot's past in a very bad way. The question is, will Parrot be able to face his past and complete the mission, or will the vase and the fate of the Native American nation fall into the wrong hands?



Review:
I don't think there will ever be one that I don't love! I laughed through the beginning and middle. I was on the edge of my seat all the way to the end! I loved getting to know Parrot, seeing his past, present, and having GiGi push him through this mission! <3 Quirk was adorable and I love him <3 Just read the whole series because it's amazing and you will love the whole thing <3

Girl Last Seen by Nina Laurin!! Psychological Thriller!

Girl Last Seen by Nina Laurin

Two missing girls. Thirteen years apart. Olivia Shaw has been missing since last Tuesday. She was last seen outside the entrance of her elementary school in Hunts Point wearing a white spring jacket, blue jeans, and pink boots.

I force myself to look at the face in the photo, into her slightly smudged features, and I can't bring myself to move. Olivia Shaw could be my mirror image, rewound to thirteen years ago.

If you have any knowledge of Olivia Shaw's whereabouts or any relevant information, please contact...

I've spent a long time peering into the faces of girls on missing posters, wondering which one replaced me in that basement. But they were never quite the right age, the right look, the right circumstances. Until Olivia Shaw, missing for one week tomorrow.

Whoever stole me was never found. But since I was taken, there hasn't been another girl.

And now there is.


Review:

Holy crap! This book is intense, but in the most amazing way. It's raw and real. You feel and hurt for Laine. You will be angry and begging to know who did it. Who's continuing to do it. It keeps you guessing as you try to piece together the clues. The story stays raw, emotional, and real through and through from beginning to end. The end is exactly how it should be. True horror fills these pages because you can truly put yourself in this character's life. Definitely a must read.
