Dating You, Hating You by Christina Lauren

Dating You, Hating You by authors Christina Lauren was a story that did not disappoint. Evie and Carter were a treat to read and the secondary characters equally so. I laughed-out-loud so many times throughout the story. 😀  The initial tug-o-war element between Evie and Carter had some hilarious dialogue and heartfelt, passionate moments that added numerous dimensions to the read. Another stand-out book to add to the fave reads list.

About Dating You, Hating You by Christina Lauren

Sabotage is a dish best served naked

The first standalone romance by Christina Lauren, the #1 bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, is a smart, sexy and compulsively readable love story about what happens when the one you want is the one who’s in the way . . .

Despite a meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to smother the flames.

But when their two agencies merge – causing the pair to vie for the same position – all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war. Carter and Evie are both thirty-something professionals – so why can’t they act like it?

When push comes to shove and love fights with hate, will these two ever get their fairy tale Hollywood ending?

Book Spotlight! Breathing Under Water by Sophie Hardcastle

Nineteen minutes and eleven seconds separated us at birth. On the official documentation, he is older . . .

breathingunderwater_sophiehardcastleAlthough it really has nothing to do with age. What it really means is that I am, and have always been, second.
Ben and Grace Walker are twins. Growing up in a sleepy coastal town it was inevitable they’d surf. Always close, they hung out more than most brothers and sisters, surfing together for hours as the sun melted into the sea. At seventeen, Ben is a rising surf star, the golden son and the boy all the girls fall in love with. Beside him, Grace feels like she is a mere reflection of his light. In their last year of school, the world beckons, full of possibility. For Grace, finishing exams and kissing Harley Matthews is just the beginning.

Then, one day, the unthinkable. The sun sets at noon and suddenly everything that was safe and predictable is lost. And everything unravels.

Full of likeable characters, some surprise humorous dialogue and action packed scenes that were breathtaking to read. Emotional moments that grabbed this reader. Ruby and Arcus were stand outs in the story and both characters just completely shined.

Turbo Twenty-Three by Janet Evanovich

More Stephanie Plumb shenanigans unfold in Janet Evanovich’s latest instalment  in the Stephanie Plumb series, Turbo Twenty-Three, available now!

About Turbo Twenty-Three by Janet Evanovich

A killer is out to make sure someone gets his just desserts…

turbotwentythree_janetevanovich_hachettebooksBounty hunter Stephanie Plum has been on countless crime scenes, but this is definitely a first. Her fleeing target has left behind a truck loaded with ice cream and a dead body – frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.

As fate would have it, Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the ice cream factory to find out who’s killing employees and sabotaging the business. It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It’s also going to be hard to explain to Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger…

Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have ‘virtually no marketable skills’, these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.
