Book Review:At any Price by Brenna Aubrey

Leave a Comment

At Any Price (Gaming the System #1)

Published December 9th 2013 by Silver Griffon Associates
Achievement Unlocked: Geek Virgin

When Mia Strong, proud geek-girl and popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she'll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact.

It's a desperate step, but it's the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother's mounting hospital bills.

Difficulty Level: Millionaire CEO 

Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first million at seventeen. Now, in his mid-twenties, he's sexy, driven and--as CEO of his own gaming company--he's used to making the rules. Before Mia knows what's happening, he's found the loophole in the rules of her auction. Every stipulation she's made to protect her heart gets tossed by the wayside.

She can't tell if he's playing her...or if he's playing for keeps.
   
 ~.~ The Review~.~

At any price is the book that I really wanted to read for a very long time, because for the longest time I wanted to read something similar in the "college girl and the rich guy that's not in college pairing".
The story follows Mia and Adam as they meet and connect in these ..uncommon circumstances, falling in love in the process.
Mia was your average pre-med college student,passionate about games and writing about them in her blog named Geek Girl.
Adam was the ..computer genius that designed games and the CEO of his own company.
As the story progressed, I discovered I liked Adam more and more, even through I was uneasy in the beginning,but as for Mia, I definitely liked her a lot from the start.I just could connect with her.
Another thing I particularly enjoyed was the angst at the almost end of the book.Total love there.It literally kept me awake for a while longer that I should have.
What annoyed me to no end was the ...delaying of fulfilling the contract.It drove me mad!To no end...
Now,there were a few more things that didn't sit well with me, but I don't want to spoil anything for anyone.

In the end, it was a pretty good read,and I really liked it.I do recommend it to anyone who is interested in romance or love stories that really seem..that have no chance at all.
I Rated it: 4 Stars!

Mutilate my heart by Emily Godwin Blog tour:Book Review

1 comment




Title: Mutilate My Heart (Mutilate #1)

Author: Emily Godwin
Date of Publication: July 9, 2013
Genre: contemporary YA romance with paranormal elements

Blurb:

Punk rock band Mutilated Arteries has been seventeen-year-old Becca's world (aka obsession) for the last year. When the band schedules a concert in her hometown, she and her best friend Carli are the first ones in line to buy tickets. The night is everything she expects it to be and more, especially after making friends with the new super-cute bassist, Sketch.

Becca's mom warns her not to fall for a rock star because rock stars are always on the road - or they die in a plane crash, like her mom's favorite band did twenty-something years ago. But after the band's tour bus breaks down and they're stuck hanging out in Roizen Hills for a week, it's hard for Becca not to fall for Sketch and his caricature drawings and toxic green eyes.

Becca knows Sketch is leaving as soon as the bus is fixed, and she can't be his fan-turned-girlfriend anyway because of the lead singer's "No Girlfriends" rule. Plus, there's something strange about the guys that Becca can't quite decipher... like how they won't reveal their real names, their always-changing odd appearances, and the guitarist's obsession with blood and zombies. Still, Becca wants nothing more than for Sketch to mutilate her heart...but it just might not be in a way she expects.

About Emily Godwin

Emily Godwin is a Young Adult author. She enjoys writing, painting, and sewing her own line of non-evil voodoo dolls. She's a Slytherin, trying to disguise herself as a Hufflepuff, and wishes she could read herself into books.



                                                   


                                                               ~ The Review~



Mutilate my Heart is one punk-rock fangirl's fantasy romance with a rockstar,but not your usual one.It will blow your brains out and leave you hungry for more(Of what,it's debatable).
Emily Godwin definitely has some kick ass writing style and I particularly liked how she wrote the lighthouse scene.It made the top "Favorite Scenes" list, along with pretty much all the scenes from the end of the book.
As for the characters,Becca and Carli were definitely my favourite female characters and as it's Becca POV ,I could connect with her.She was down to earth and a cool ,and very brave girl.But I din't quite connect with most of the band members.Like ,they were just some nicknames and the emo look.Untouchable, punk-rock band.Rockstars.
Turning the page towards the list of things that I didn't particularly like, the first and the thing that was quite expensive was that sometimes it was slightly more dark than I would've liked it or that I was comfortable with it, in a emo-punk-Marylin Manson kind of way.I guess that in my mind,most of the band members look a lot like Marylin Manson.A lot younger version of him.

All in all, Mutilate my heart mutilated most of my night in one sitting,and being the good read it was,I recommend it, but be aware!The story will grip you tightly and will not let you go, even after you have past read the last words from the last page.It will leave  you wanting more.Wanting to read the next book.Because it has a lot of things that have yet to be discovered and told.For me it was Carli's POV.I wanted to dig deeper into her romance with Corpse.The mother.Yes,I actually said the mother(Can't believe it either).Her story is one that has to be told.It would be an interesting read for sure.

Book Tour :Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls by Tellulah Darling

Leave a Comment

Title: Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls
Author: Tellulah Darling
Publisher: Te Da Media
Date of Publication: October 17, 2012

Blurb:

Why the hell can’t chicks be more like guys?

That question plagues high school senior Sam Cruz. Sam is perfectly happy being a player. He just wishes girls wouldn’t change the game from sex to relationships. It makes him look like an asshole. But when Sam’s best friend, Ally Klinger, gets dumped, she begs him to transform her into someone who can screw around then screw off. No risk of heartbreak that way. It’s Sam’s chance to create the perfect female AND cheer up his best friend. Armed with Sam’s Three Step Guide to Backseat Success, Ally gets the game better than Sam thought she would and before long, Sam has his wish: the female version of himself. Too bad it’s driving him nuts. Told from Sam’s and Ally's alternating POVs, Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls is a fast-paced YA romantic comedy that follows these teens as they navigate the minefield of sex, love, and friendship.

This contemporary teen romance contains strong language, drinking, euphemisms, and lots of “bow chicka wow wow.”

Leave a Comment

North Pole Reform School by Jaimie Admans
Publication date: November 6th 2013
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Young Adult

Synopsis:
Mistletoe Bell hates Christmas. So would you if you had a name like hers. Her Christmas-mad parents make the festive season last all year, and with another Christmas looming, Mis doesn’t think she can take any more. After her carelessness causes an accident at school, it seems like things can’t get any worse.

Then she wakes up to find The Ghost of Christmases Ruined in her bedroom.

She is taken to the North Pole, to a reform school run by elves determined to make her love Christmas. Stuck in a misfit group of fellow Christmas-haters with a motley crew of the weird and even weirder, watched over by elves day and night, she doesn’t expect to meet cute and funny Luke, who is hiding a vulnerable side beneath his sarcastic exterior. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with him.

But all is not as it should be at the North Pole. A certain Mr Claus is making the elves’ lives a misery, and pretty soon Mistletoe and Luke are doing more than just learning to like Christmas.

A YA romantic comedy in which Santa is the bad guy, teaching reindeer to fly is on the curriculum, and zombies have a fondness for Christmas music.

Book Tour :Say When by Tara West- Book Excerpt

Leave a Comment

Say When by Tara West
(Something More #1)

Publication date: July 19th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. It’s so hard to say anything when he’s trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin.

Then there’s the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I’m creating art, almost like he believes I have talent.

He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. Not like my ex-fiancée. Not like my father. He’s got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

And now I’m scared, because that means I’ll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too.

Book Excerpt !

  I don’t know what force of nature compels me to break my “no eye contact” rule. Maybe it is his heady musk, or the warmth radiating off his frame, but when I look into his eyes, I swear I nearly wet my pants. The guy is gorgeous. Warm chocolate eyes, thick lashes, flawless tanned skin, marred only by the slightest bit of stubble on his square jaw. Black hair cut short frames his angular face. And that mouth, so full and sensual, my traitorous lips part as if compelled to kiss him.
            When he looks down at me and smiles, I know I’m done for. My knees weaken and the heat rushes through me and spreads like wildfire. Damn me for acting the love-struck fool and smiling back.
            His sensual lips part and I think, Oh, gawd, this is it. You’re about to totally violate your anti-slut protocol and make out with this random stranger. I don’t even have the strength to tell myself I’m acting like an idiot.
            He leans toward me, and before he gets the chance to kiss me, he points to something just beyond my shoulder. “Do you girls need help?”
            His deep, rich voice startles me, but not as much as the fact that I was about to kiss a total stranger—a stranger who’s obviously not interested in kissing me back.
            I turn toward Karri. She’s slumped against the driver’s side door and sobbing into her hands. Well, don’t I feel like the total bitch?
            My sexy Latin stud brushes past me, the click of his cowboy boots ringing across the pavement as he walks toward Karri. He’s a soldier. I can tell by his rigid, uniform stride, although his cropped hair should have given it away.  Karri’s brother is in the Marines, and he’s got a similar stiffness in his gait. I follow this guy, even though my legs are almost useless, weakened by my stupid crazy hormones.
            “Uh, oh,” he says as he circles the car.
            It’s still smoking, and I worry maybe Karri should back away, even though I’m pretty sure cars only blow up in the movies. 
            Karri looks at him through wide, watery eyes, and something flashes in her gaze. Oh, yeah, her slut sonar must be on high alert. I can’t say I blame her. His physique is just as impressive from the rear. His jeans mold to that ass perfectly, and even through his striped linen shirt, I can see the outline of a man in prime condition.
            Karri wipes her eyes with the back of her hand. “My stupid car broke down.” She pouts and bats her lashes while thrusting out her generous cleavage.
            “It’s not the car that’s stupid,” I say before I have the chance to stop myself. I slap my hand over my mouth. What the heck is wrong with me? But as I watch my friend slant me a dirty look and then turn a big smile on the stud, I know exactly what’s wrong. I’m being territorial over a guy, which is weird, because I’ve never been that way before, not even over Jackson. And for some odd reason, money grubbing hos are always throwing themselves at him. 
            “Mind if I take a look?” Stud muffin asks, but he’s already inside the car popping the lever. Smoke pours from the engine when he lifts the hood.
            I take several steps back because the fumes are unbearable. Karri screeches and stomps a foot. He surveys the damage, and when he frowns, the tendons in his neck flex beneath his stiff shirt collar. Damn. I imagine the muscles beneath that shirt are even tighter. Double damn.
            I cross one leg over the other, balancing awkwardly as I try to quell my raging hormones—that is how hot and bothered I am over a guy.
