Our Moon by Jennifer L. Allen !! A very beautiful and a heart warming story. Such sweet stories always puts a smile on your face. It was a warm experience and I just wanted to cuddle down in the bed and read this book. It is a very well developed story, that makes you feel more and more for the characters as you progress. I loved the family bond, I loved how innocent and sweet the relationship between Ally and Chase was. The narration was just amazing, even though it was predictable who the mystery guy was, yet I still wanted to keep going. A very pleasant story. 

“I was in a car accident with my parents the night of my high school graduation. I ended up with a banged up head, and they ended up in the ground. I should be sad about this fact, and i guess a part of me is sad at the idea that my parents are dead, but i cant remember them to mourn”

Resplendent Rage by Bella J !!!! Yet another electrifying story by my favourite author. I was totally gobsmacked with this one. Warning: It contains some graphic violence !! But OMG didn’t see this coming. What I love about this book is the passionate love and rage to gather back. It was highly intense and gave me goosebumps. Even though this book had violence, but the emotion and passion took over. Its has dual POV and the plot is alternating between past and present, developing a connection to the story gradually and the relationship between Kim and Jax. Just like the rest I loved this one as well. I liked that little connection between Daniel and Ava as well. 

BONUS BONUS BONUS : More of Knox & Juliette !!! Ok I am totally partial as my favourite alpha in The Resplendence Series is Knox. I just had to mention it.. LOL…

BOOK REVIEWED : Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre !!

5 CHANEL STARS !!!
28103957

Love Chloe by Alessandra Torre !!! I just want to say one thing, WHY DID IT END !!!!!!! Seriously I never wanted this book to end !! You had me at the cover of the book. It was beautiful, the excerpt got me all excited and the story was phenomenal. I am grateful for receiving the ARC of this beautiful story. I absolutely loved it. It was refreshing in so many ways. It was cute, the struggles were truly heart felt and her determination to overcome the hardships was awe-inspiring. I loved her bond with her friends, it wasn’t superficial which I initially thought (how very presumptuous of me) and how it actually got healthier with time. The little creativity, the author showed by making an Instagram profile and the blog featuring on Cosmopolitan named The Bedroom Blog, where Chloe writes her diary, basically all the events happening in her life giving her perspective, made Chloe very realistic and interesting to a great extent. It’s an interesting journey of a girl who rediscovers herself after her fallen grace. 

“All I know is that when I hit the bottom, I hit hard – Chloe”

Chloe Madison is the only child of the Madisons. “A filthy rich financial advisor couple who pocketed a hundred million bucks from insider trading.” Now they were a front news for the embezzlement they caused. Chloe’s pampered life ended faster than a train wreck. In no time, their accounts were frozen, cars confiscated and assets seized, including her apartment. Basically once a NYU princess – was now homeless !!!

Chloe took her fall hard and turns to her BFF’s Cammie and Brenta. Living on the Cammies couch was impossible, but Chloe had no other choice. At least she got to keep her clothes after all the clusterfuck. Chloe was jobless and in order to get a job, she needed to finish her degree and for that she needed money. Never before was this a problem, but now her fate had twisted. To pay for her college dues, she tries to take up a job and after all the struggles, lands at Nicole Brantley’s (Condom Heiress married to mega rich Clarke Brantley). 

Photo 21-03-16, 5 13 37 PM

Nicole Brantley is a nightmare !! Chloe’s job description required everything from walking Nicole’s Dog, to managing her actress goals. Amidst all the craziness, Chloe comes across Carter ! Carter is a prince charming in disguise. They have a sizzling attraction, but Chloe cannot act on it. 

“ Blue-collar had never been my thing, too many millionaires in this city to bother with anything else. Then again, my tastes seemed to be changing. I might have to dip my toes into that pool once or twice. Just to taste the poison. Just to have it on my skin.- Chloe “

If things were not nearly enough torturous for her,  fate threw her Ex in the mix. Meet Vic Worth (A billionaire trust-fund baby) who is hell bent on winning Chloe’s trust again. 

“ I can’t stay away from you, Chloe. I’ve tried – Vic Worth “

Fighting with her past and trying to make a better future, take a glance at Chloe’s sensational journey of finding a career and a true love !!!!! 

“She is my everything.

 She is my future.

 She is my Chloe.

 She is my Love. -…….. “

Who will Chloe choose when it comes to her true love ???

Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley !!! OMG !!! I guarantee you a full belly laughter with this one. An exquisite romantic story with a lot of swoon worthy moments and refreshing humour, amidst a murder mystery. Isn’t it a complete package! It was dramatic when it came to Olivia Rose Sullivan’s family – they were hilarious and I loved her witty grandmother Pease. Even though it’s surrounded by a murder mystery, it was funny and cute. All the incidents one after another were ludicrous and unpredictable. I enjoyed this story a lot and had so much fun reading it. My jaw hurts, I laughed so much and even while writing this review I have a big smile on. A great lighthearted romantic entertainer.

BOOK REVIEWED : The Confessions (An Original Sinners Collection) by Tiffany Reisz !!

BOOK RELEASE : 15,March,2016
“5 SOREN STARS”

Dear Tiffany Reisz,

I have read and re-read THE ORIGINAL SINNERS several times. I am an addict to your writing. For me you are the epitome of a brilliant author who can create stories like magic. There is always an air of mystery that leaves anyone greedy for more and more of your stories. Never could I write a review for your books, because I always felt the characters you created are so grand, that writing something about them may not justify them appropriately. I always lacked words to describe the multiple emotions I go through while reading your stories. To say I finish your books in one go, wont be something fancy because anybody who has ever read even a single book you have written, must do the same. I have waited for your books like any other mad Soren addict would. I am honoured to have received the ARC of The Confessions and I am extremely grateful. I was ecstatic even before I started and of course I finished the story in tears. Is it weird that I always finish your books in tears, because you know there is going to be a long way before you get another one and parting with your favourite characters is so sorrowful. Like I say your writing is magical, I feel so connected to the story and every single character left a deep mark in my memory. Thank you for writing such beautiful characters and giving us an escape in your wonderland.

A Die-hard Fan,
Mybooklatte

EXCERPT :

Father Ballard sat up straighter when he sensed a presence behind him. Smiling he glanced skyward again. “Stop paying attention to us,” he whispered in his mind, a prayer God was sure to answer with a hearty “no.” Where Father Marcus Stearns was concerned, God always paid attention.

When Ballard leaned his head back, the presence behind him leaned forward.

“Six months, Marcus,” Father Ballard said, tapping his wrist as if he were checking the time. “No one goes six months without sinning.”

“Do you have time for me today?”

“I might. What’s her name?” he asked, his usual joke when another priest approached him for confession. Ballard looked back and saw Marcus had his rosary beads wrapped around his fingers. Something about the way he held them, tight and nervous, made Ballard’s blood drop a degree or two in his veins.

“Eleanor.” 

 

Mybooklatte’s Review:

The Confessions by Tiffany Reisz in The Original Sinner series is the last leg. I am glad I read this book as it answered a lot of question marks I had from the series. Even though as the series progress, a lot of mysteries were solved, but this book will answer every question you may have. The confessions gave me peace. 

It was witty and grand as always. I was dying to hear Soren’s and Nora’s confession. Oh my !!!!! No wonder it gave Father Ballard all the greys he adorned. As a plus, you will get Tiffany’s take on the book. Her inspirations and a lot of questions I subconsciously had regarding the characters, have been answered. Its amazing how her mind works and I can never say enough that her work is simply brilliant. I don’t even have to say that you should read it, because I know like me you have been waiting to hear their confessions forever. 

Grab your copies ➜ The Confessions by Tiffany Reisz !!

P.S- If you are a new reader, you need to read all the books in The Original Sinners before The Confessions !!
