Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs

I was given an ARC in exxchange of a an honest review.

Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life--or so she thinks. When powerful tech giant Aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can't say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she'll be set for life.

Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong and they break the only rule they were given: do not look into their own fates.

Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her eidetic memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends and herself.

As a fan of Back to the future series I had no doubt about requesting this book.
And, lucky me, it was awesome.
Well written,full of intrigue and twists this book kept me in my feet, waiting for the punch. I couldn't put it down, went to sleep at 3 am, so I could finish soon.
I felt for them like if I was there too, running like a mouse in a labyrinth.

I think the romantic part could be bigger, but that´s my only complain.

Como uma fã da série De volta para o Futuro eu não pude deixar de solicitar esse livro no Netgalley. E, pra minha sorte, o livro foi maravilhoso.
Bem escrito, cheio de intrigas e reviravoltas, me manteve sempre alerta, esperando pelo próximo susto. Não pude deixar de lado, fui dormir às3 da matina pra poder acabar logo.
Eu sentia pelos personagens como se estivesse lá com eles, correndo como um ratinho de laboratório no labirinto.
Eu acho que a parte romântica poderia ser maior, mas essa é minha única queixa.

Ready To Rock: A Rock Star Romance (Save the Date 0) by Cara Connelly

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

His name's on everyone's lips--sexy rocker Jack McCabe. His gritty New York City band is red hot, almost as hot as his fiery affair with photography student Lil Marchone, the girl from his past, now the woman he loves. The problem is, Lil's controlling ex wants her back. Rich, powerful, and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing--including murder--to get Jack out of her life. But Jack's a badass himself, always up for a fight. And with the stakes this high, he'll risk everything for Lil, even his band. Even his life. 

I loved this book from the very start, but it had some things that bothered me a lot.
Like Lil leading Claude on. I don´t like cheaters, and she could have avoid a lot of trouble for her and Jack if she had put her big girl panties on. And her uncle Peter, I just wanted to get in the book and shake some sense into him.

Jack was perfect, his alpha male behavior was hot without being idiotic like Claude´s. And the fact that he was so gifted and still being so humble. His chemistry with Lil was off-the-charts-hot.

Eu amei este livro desde o começo, mas tem algumas coisas que me incomodaram bastante. 
Como a Lil enganando o Claude, odeio traidores e ela teria evitado muito problema se ela tivesse agido como uma pessoa responsável. E o tio Peter, eu só queria entrar no livro e sacudí-lo até ele entender as coisas como elas realmente eram.
Jack é perfeito. Ele é alfa sem ser idiota como o Claude. E o fato de ele ser tão talentoso e ainda ser tão humilde. E a química entre ele e a Lil é suuuuuper quente.

The Girl's Got Secrets (Forbidden Men #7) by Linda Kage

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

Here’s the same old “girl posing as a boy” story but with a rock-n-roll twist.

Remy Curran dreams of one day being in a band, except the group she wants to join refuses to hire a girl drummer. So, she auditions as a guy...and makes the cut.

Becoming “Sticks,” a member of Non-Castrato, isn’t quite what she dreamed it would be, though. She spends most of her time keeping up the subterfuge and learning how to walk, talk, act, and drink like a man.

But what’s even harder to deal with is acting oblivious when the band’s heartthrob lead singer, Asher Hart, treats her like one of the guys and not a woman. She never imagined he’d be so much more than a pretty face with a nice voice. But he’s better than perfect. He’s perfect for her.

When love and lies combine, Remy must keep up the act or lose everything. But who knew lying to reach one dream could prevent you from attaining an even bigger dream?

Though the "girl posing as a boy" theme is old-fashioned I love this kind of story and this particular one was awesome.
Well written, funny, steamy. I loved how Asher was super blasé about Remy "homossexuality".

Jodi, Rmey´s best friend, is a riot, she hit on every pair of pants in front of her. She cracked me up. The scene where Asher´s bandmates leaves her bedroom and she says to Remy " They´re was fighting because of me, I taught them how to share" made me lmao.

Embora o tema "garota fingindo que é garoto" esteja fora de moda, eu amo esse tipo de história. E essa, em particular, foi muito legal.
Bem escrita, engraçada, quente. Eu amei como Asher agiu naturalmente sobre a " homossexualidade" da Remy.
Jodi, a melhor amiga de Remy, é uma parada. Ela dá em cima de todo homem que ela acha bonito. Eu ri muito com as "artes" dela. A cena em que os companheiros de banda do Asher saem do quarto dela e ela fala pra Remy " Eles estavam brigando por minha causa, eu os ensinei a dividir" me fez rir demais.

Unwanted Girl - M.K. Schiller

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

Recovering addict Nick Dorsey finds solace in his regimented life. That is until he meets Shyla Metha.  Something about the shy Indian beauty who delivers take-out to his Greenwich Village loft inspires the reclusive writer. And when Shyla reveals her desire to write a book of her own, he agrees to help her. The tale of a young Indian girl growing up against a landscape of brutal choices isn’t Nick’s usual territory, but something about the story, and the beautiful storyteller, draws him in deep. 
Shyla is drawn to Nick, but she never imagines falling for him. Like Nick, Shyla hails from a village, too…a rural village in India. They have nothing in common, yet he makes her feel alive for the first time in her life. She is not ready for their journey to end, but the plans she’s made cannot be broken…not even by him. Can they find a way to rewrite the next chapter?

As a fan of MK Schiller books I was thrilled when my request of this book was accepted. But this book exceeded any expectations I had about it. It's a gut-wrenching and heart-warming story that made me wept like a baby and feel my heart full of joy for Shyla and Nick.
She is the definition of a bad-ass heroine. She went through hell and back and surpassed everything until she found her HEA.
And Nick is like a balm for her broken soul. 

I can´t say much more without giving spoilers, but I strongly recommend you to prepare your heart to be taken to a world of sorrow but also of the most fundamental joy in the world.

Como uma fã dos livros de MK Schiller eu fiquei muito emocionada quando minha solicitação desse livro foi aceita. Mas esse livro excedeu todas as expectativas que eu tinha sobre ele. É uma história angustiante e comovente que me fez chorar como um bebê e sentir meu coração encher de alegria por Shyla e Nick.
Shyla é a definição da heroína bad-ass. Ela sofreu demais, muito mesmo, passou por coisas que ninguém deveria passar, mas encontrou forças para viver até o seu felizes para sempre.
Nick é um bálsamo para a sua alma sofrida.
Eu não posso dizer muito mais sem vazar spoilers. mas recomendo fortemente que você prepare seu coração para um mundo de tristeza mas também para a alegria mais fundamental do mundo.

Last Wish - Erin Butler

I was given an arc in exchange of an honest review.

Ronan made a promise to his best friend. He promised to take care of his sister, and then his friend died and he felt obligated to take care of her. But what he didn´t expected was her to start a relationship with her brother`s killer. And to makes him a ultimatum, forgive him or forget her.
Em was in an abusive relationship, and when she could see clearly what was going on, she ran from it right to Bear´s arms and that´s was the best thing that could ever happen.

This story was kind of slow at the beginning but after reach full throttle it was really good.
I loved Bear, he´s the ultimate guy, big and sweet. His relationship with Em is beautiful.

Power Play (Pilots Hockey #2) - Sophia Henry

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

I´m in a row of "meh" books. They're all books that could be awesome but turned out being mediocre when not downright ridiculous.
I was completely annoyed with this book, the way the story was told, the characters, the plot itself.
Everything seemed forced, even her relationship with her family.
Gabriela had a crush on Landon since ever, and apparently he had one crush on her as well. But after that many years, he out of the blue, started to flirt with her. 
And her father was a sexist pig. Joey was ridiculous. And I think I´ll stop here.

The Backup: A Montgomery University Novel - Kathryn Renard

I was given an ARC in exchange of a honest review.

This book started well enough, and sometimes it was really good, but it mostly was "meh" and in the end was downright outrageous.
Josie Savage is the daughter of a football star and when she starts in college she Runner Rarity, the backup QB and they hit it off but he has a girlfriend, a lunatic girlfriend.
My first impression of Runner was that he was nice, but I thought he will cheat on his girlfriend, who he thought bad about her all the time. How she was nicer, less blond, less mean when they´re was in highschool.
Josie left me confused about her personality, because she was a doormat to her parents, especially her father but she fought back other people.
Actually, most of this book left me confused, it was irritating and gave me whiplash.
Runner turned out being an Asshole with an capital A, and a cheater, with the "poor guy" complex. And Josie wasn´t so badass as I thought, hence she accept him and his assholery back.

Malibu Secrets (Malibu Sights #2) - M.K. Meredith

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

I requested this book at netgalley because I love books which the story are related to movie stars or something like it. But it didn't worked for me. I don´t know what was the real problem, certainly someone else can related to it, but I couldn't. It missed something

Eu solicitei esse livro no netgalley, pq adoro livros com estrelas de cinema e coisas do tipo, mas não gostei. Não sei especificar qual foi realmente o problemas, mas não gostei. Faltou algo.

A Love for the Pages - Joy Penny

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

June Eyermann is back home after her first as a freshman in college. When she ´s home she start to feel like the pressure to know what to do with her future and as a way to escape she accept a position at the library as a volunteer.
There she finds Everett Rockford the hero to her love story.
Actually this book was kind of a let down. It did not focused on the romance part, they barely talk until way beyond half of the book. June spends more time comparing him to her books boyfriends and when they really started a relationship it felt rushed and it was already at the end of the book.

June Eyermann está de volta em casa após o primeiro ano de faculdade. Quando ela chega em casa ela começa a sentir a pressão pra saber o que fazer sobre seu futuro e como uma forma de escapar ela aceita a posição na biblioteca como voluntária.
Lá ela encontra Everett Rockford, o herói da sua história de amor.
Na verdade esse livro foi meio que decepcionante. Não focou na parte romântica, eles mal se falam até bem depois da metade do livro e June passa mais tmepo comparando-o com os book boyfriends dela e quando eles finalmente começam a desenvolver uma relação, ela foi meio que apressada e já no final do livro.

The Dirt on Ninth Grave (Charley Davidson #9) - Darynda Jones

I'm completely mesmerized by this series. Each book left me wanting more. I don´t know how Darynda does, but she´s an awesome writer.
In this book Charley is amnesiac, she learnt her name which led to an explosion of sorts and she end up in Sleepy Hollow with headless guy and everything.
There she struggles to remember who she is, what she doesn't know is that al her family,friends and ghosts are surrounding her. They´re there for her, waiting her memories to come back.
She is as sassy as ever, and as infatuated with Reyes as evermore.
Though she doesn't remember her past she didn't lose her witty comebacks, which always let me laughing like a lunatic.
I cried when her father sacrificed his time on earth with her so she could remember everything. And I was completely stunned when she learnt Reyes was one god as well.
Now I have to wait so much time for the next book that makes me wanna cry even more.

Long Way Down (Calloway Sisters #4) -Krista Ritchie and Becca Ritchie

Where do I begin? This is the end of an era? No, overused. I think I´ll stick with this is the transition to a new era. The passage rite to another generation.
When I started reading Addicted to you, I was giving a chance to a book, which I didn't know nor liked the subject, because I´m not really a fan of characters with addictions. But I was lured in hook, line and sink, since the very first page.
I fell in love with LiLo. they´re my favourite couple ever.
They overcame so much trouble in their lives, that I think they must be happy for the next five lives.
Ryke and Daisy are the couple who had to fight most for their love, because of their age gap, their family or fans didn't believe in them.
Unlike Lily and Lo who had to fight internal demons, they had to fight for others to believe in their love. In their compromise to each other. But they have their demons too. And we could see them clearly than ever in Long way down.
I loved the epilogue and the fact that they´re still friends even after all those years.
I´m so anxious for the Like Us series to be released that I think I´ll die waiting for it.
For thos whoo didn´t read the addicted series, I strongly recommend you to read A.S.A.P. and if you are a fan like me, I wish you the best books for you to read until the release date of Damaged like us

The Fix Up (First Impressions) - Tawna Fenske

Ben Langley has the face of a movie star, the body of NFL linebacker and the brain of a chem geek. And while he´s the new CEO in the family company, he lacks the attitude, so he hires Holly Colvin to help him to navigate his new environment.
The story is short, but it covers everything without feeling rushed. I loved how they met, it was real fun.
Ben is just perfect, and he and Holly really connected.
I'll certainly look for another books by this author.

Ben Langley tem o rosto de um astro de cinema, o corpo de um linebacker da NFL e o cérebro de um geek. E enquanto ele é o novo CEO  da empresa da família, ele não tem a atitude condizente com o cargo, então ele contrata Holly Colvin para ajudá-lo a navegar esse novo ambiente.
A história é curta, mas cobre todos os pontos necessários sem deixar a impressão de que foi apressada.
Eu amei o modo como eles se conheceram, foi muito engraçado.
Ben é perfeito e ele e Holly tem uma conexão forte.
Eu, certamente, procurarei por outros livros dessa autora.

The Game Plan (Game On #3) - Kristen Callihan

OMG. I'm in love with this series. It´s just so everything. Is sweet, hot, drama, funny as hell.
Ethan is a dream come true, he´s hot as hell and a big Hulk-alike, but he's also reserved and sweet. Oh my goodness, he's bearded and has a man-bun, samurai style.
If he was more perfect I think I would die.
Fiona is the yang for his yin, she´s tiny and larger than life, and fierce.
They´re perfect together.

AMD.Estou apaixonada por essa série. Tem tudo, doçura, quentura, drama, muito humor.
Ethan é um sonho realizado, ele é muito quente, e grande como o Hulk, mas ele tb é reservado e doce. Ai, meu Deus, ele tem uma barba e um coque estilo samurai. Se ele fosse mais perfeito eu morria.
Fiona é o complemento dele, ela é pequenininha mas cheia de vida e feroz.
Eles são perfeitos juntos.

First Touch - Laurelin Paige

I'm such a fan of Paige´s books. I loved the Fixed series, so when I saw her book at netgalley, I requested without even read the blurb. And I can say, it did not disappointed me. Au contraire, it excelled every expectation I had about it.
It´s a dark book, so you must be warned, because not everyone sympathize with a heroin who likes to be humiliated, a submissive at her lowest.
Well written, fast paced and off-the-charts hot First Touch hooked me from the very beginning and through the whole book. I just couldn´t put it down.

Eu sou uma grande fã dos livros da Laurelin Paige. Eu amei a série Fixed, então quando eu vi o livro dela na Netgalley, o solicitei sem nem ler a sinopse. E posso dizer, sem sombre de dúvidas, que não me desapontou.. Pelo contrário, excedeu todas as expectativas que eu tinha.
É um livro dark, então vc deve ser avisada, pq nem todos os leitores gostam de ler um livro com uma mocinha que gosta de ser humilhada, uma submissa na forma mais baixa.
Muito bem escrito,  com um rápido desenvolvimento e quente ao infinito e além First Touch prendeu minha atenção desde o começo e durante todo o livro. Não pude parar de ler.

Against the Wall - Jill Sorenson

It was a nice ride, fast paced and with a touch of drama and suspense, which wasn't resolved, so I Think will be solved in the next one, that I hope will be about Kelsea and Tank.
Eric and Meghan are characters still in development, and I think they deserve another book, with their accomplishments when they´re a little older.
I loved how sweet Eric was with his niece, and that he own his mistakes, he doesn't play the poor guy card and.
The sex scenes are red hot.

Foi um livro legal, rápido com um pouco de drama e suspense, que não foi resolvido. Então, acredito que essa parte será revelada no próximo livro, que eu espero que seja sobre a Kelsea e o Tank.
Eric e Meghan são personagens ainda em desenvolvimento e acredito que eles merecem outro livro que se passe mais pra frente e que nos mostre como eles eles estão ao atingirem uma idade mais madura.
Eu amei como o Eric é com a sobrinha dele e como ele assume seus erros sem jogar a carta do pobre coitadinho.

The Truth About Him (Everything I Left Unsaid #2) - Molly O'Keefe

This is the second and last installment and it starts right where the first one finished. Dylan and Annie are back and while they´re now free from Annie's abusive husband, they're seem to be in even more trouble than before. How is that even possible?
There are trouble everywhere around them and Annie refuses to let the trailer park behind like Dylan asked her to, because Ben is sick and needs her. But what Annie doesn´t know is that they´re in real danger, so Dylan moved to the trailer park as well, so he can protect her.
In the steamy hot sex scenes we can see how Annie left her past behind and became more bold.
There are a lot of revelations and suspense.
I loved Ben.

Este é o segundo e último livro e começa exatamente onde o primeiro acabou. Dylan e Annie estão de volta e enbora eles estejam agora livres do  marido abusivo da Annie, eles parecem ter ainda mais problemas do que antes. Como isso é possível?
Tem problemas de todos os lados e Annie se recusa a deixar o estacionamento de trailers como Dylan quer, pq Ben está doente e precisa dela. Mas, o que Annie não sabe é que eles estão correndo perigo, entõ Dylan se mudou pro estacionamento de Trailer também, para que ele pudesse protegê-la.
Nas cenas fumegantes de sexo nós podemos ver como Annie deixou o passado para trás e se tornou mais ousada.
Cheio de revelações e suspense.
Amei o Ben.

Everything I Left Unsaid (Everything I Left Unsaid #1) - Molly O'Keefe

What a unusual plot.
Annie is on the run. She's a beaten wife who had to run in order to survive.
When she´s in a North Carolina trailer park, she receives a call from a phone left by the previous tenant.
The stranger on the other end of the line was everything she ever asked for. With him she felt safe, desired. Though they never met in person, they´re addicted to each other.
I loved this book. Was real well written and had everything, romance, intrigue, tension, undercover dea, mc club, stripper, father-son troubles and though Dylan and Annie didn't see each other for a long time, we have real steamy phone-sex scenes.

Que enredo inusitado.
Annie está fugindo. Ela é uma esposa espancada que fugiu para sobreviver.
 Quando ela está em um estacionamento de trailers ela receb um telefonema em um telefone que foi esquecido pelo inquilino anterior.
O esranho do outro lado da linha é tudo que ela sempre quis. Com ele, ela se sente segura e desejada. Embora, eles nunca tenham se encontrado pessoalmente, eles estão viciados um no outro..
Eu amei esse livro. Foi muito bem escrito e tem de tudo um pouco. Romance, intriga, tensão, policias da narco disfarçados, clube MC, stripper, problemas entre pai e filho e embora Dylan e Annie tenham demorado bastante pra se encontrar a primeira vez, tem muitas cenas quentes de sexo por telefone.

Scrubs - Brooke Harris

I was given this ARC in exchange of an honest  review.

I don´t know really what to say about this book. It was told in a nice way and fast paced but it raise a lot of questions and doesn't answer not  even one.
On the bright side is a short story, but it ends on a cliffhanger what means that the whole story could have been told in one book and we would be saved of the wait for the next one so we know WTH is going on

I couldn't relate with the characters properly, I think it was to short of a story, or to much information for a short story and no answers at all.

Eu não sei bem o que dizer sobre esse livro. A história foi contada de uma forma até agradável e rápida, mas levanta muitas questóes e não reponde a nem umazinha.
Olhando pelo lado bom é uma história curta,mas acaba em um cliffhanger o que significa que a história completa poderia ter sido contada em apenas um livro e nós seríamos salvos de ter que esperar pelo próximo para sabermos WTH está acontecenco.
Eu não consegui me identificar com os personagens apropriadamente. Acredito que a história tenha sido muito curta ou que tenha muita informação pra uma história tão curta.

November 9 - Colleen Hoover

OMG, I don't know how to start this review. I think I´ll begin by thanking Colleen for being such an amazing author, and saying that if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be making my reviews in this blog, right now.
If you are asking yourself how is that even possible, I can tell you a short story about how I fell in love with Slammed, which was translated to portuguese awhile ago and that I was so transfixed, amazed and thrilled after reading that book that I couldn't for the life of me wait the next one to be translated, I had to read, immediately. So I started to read in english, it was easier that I thought possible. And from that day, I didn't stopped reading in english and thanks to that I´m now reviewing for netgalley and that´s why this blog was a dream come true and all thanks to Colleen.
So, coming back to the book in my table right now. 
I´ve been waiting for this book for so long that I thought I would die in happiness when I started to read. 
This book left me weeping like a baby, though I must say I´m not really a fan of Ben right now.
It all started with a plot that kind of reminded me One Day.
With Ben and Fallon only meeting once a year in November 9 (one doubt, has Colleen chose this date because of 9/11? Does someone know?). The plot flows so easily. Ben and Fallon has a really bad case of insta-love, though Fallon claims to hate books with insta-love. They´re perfect together, their witty banter makes me laugh like a loon and their angsty moments makes me sob like I´m the one having my heart ripped off my chest.
*SPOILER ALERT* When Fallon discovered that Ben was with Jordyn, I was comfortably eating a pineapple ice cream and my spoon stopped mid-air while my heart stopped mid-thug, I just couldn't comprehend what a hell of a twist Colleen put it in my life.
And when I found out Ben was the one responsible for Fallon´s scars I was a puddle of tears in my living room floor. How? How she does that? I strongly recommend you to read this book alone, or you'll embarrass yourself with your tear-stained face in front of others.

Intoxicated (Felony Romance #1) - Jeana E. Mann

I was given an ARC in exchange of a honest review.

*Spoiler Alert*

This book was a disappointment for me. It started well, cliché-y but well. But it has so many things I didn't like, that I was just skipping through the book. Like a pregnant ex, and drug addict above all. I don´t like books where the guy goes and get another woman pregnant, and I despise drug addicts specially pregnant women who don´t care for his own child.
I can´t say much about this book, it just didn't worked for me.

Esse livro foi decepcionante pra mim. Começou até bem, meio cliché mas ok. Mas, tinha tantas coisas que não gosto que fiquei mais foi passando as páginas. Como uma ex que está grávida, e ainda por cima é viciada em drogas. Eu não gosto de livros em que o cara sai engravidando outras mulheres, ainda por cima uma criatura viciada que não dá valor à própria vida, muito menos à vida da criança que gera em seu ventre.
Não posso dizer muito sobre esse livro, ele simplesmente não funcionou pra mim.

Every Choice (Every Series, #2) by Samantha Rey

I was given an ARC in exchange of a honest review.

I´m so happy I chose this book at netgalley to request, because I chose for the wrong reason, hahaha, but it turned out being a right choice.
I chose because of the couple on the cover. I love Obsidian, and I think all the new adults fans knows that the cover couple are the same, and every time I see a book with that couple on the cover I want to read it, hahaha. Oh yeah, color me crazy. But as I said before, I loved this book, so it was all good.
Cassie Whitlock has lived in a nightmare for four years, she´s closed off to everything and everyone, even her best friend London.
Luca Santoro, is the blip on her radar after all those years of numbness. He is the tall, handsome and dark man, the mother  warns their daughters about. And Cassie it is warned to steer clear from him, even from Luca himself.
But she can´t seem to stay away, au contraire, she´s drawn to him like a moth to the flame.
but Luca has his own reasons to keep Cassie at arm´s length, he´s just as fucked up as Cassie, but while he´s pushing Cassie to open up for him, he´s as closed off as ever. And that tear them apart, and almost send Cassie into darkness and numbness again.
I loved this book, Cassie is a broken woman but she keeps going with her life, most for the sake of the people around her who loves her than for herself.
And is this love for the others who makes her strong, though fragile.
Luca is an asshole at beginning but he redeemed himself through the book. Though I was really mad at him when he kept hiding stuff from Cassie when he was so adamant about her opening up for him, so they could have a chance.
Eu fiquei muito feliz de ter escolhido esse livro no netgalley, pois eu o escolhi pelos motivos errados mas acabou sendo a escolha certa. Eu o escolhi por causa do casal na capa, eu amo Obsidian e acredito que todos os fãs de NA sabem que o casal na capa é o mesmo na capa da série Lux. E toda vez que eu vejo um livro com o mesmo casal na capa eu quero ler, rsrsrs. É, pode me chamar de doida. Mas, como eu disse anteriormente, eu amei o livro, então tudo acabou bem.

Cassie Whitlock tem vivido um pesadelo pelos último quatro anos e se fechou para tudo e para todos, inclusive pra sua melhor amiga London.
Luca Santoro é o blip no radar dela depois desses anos de dormência. Ele é o moreno alto, bonito e sensual que as mães costumavam advertir suas filhas, para que elas possam ficar longe dele. E Cassie é avisada pra ficar longe dele, por várias pessoas inclusive o próprio Luca.
Mas, ela parece não conseguir ficar longe dele, pelo é atraída por ele, como uma mariposa é atraída pelo fogo.
Luca tem seus próprios motivos pra manter Cassie à distância. Ele é tão cheio de cicatrizes quanto ela, mas ele continua fazendo com que Cassie  se abra pra ele, enquanto que continua tão fechado como sempre. E isso é o que acaba por separá-los, e quase manda Cassie de volta para o mundo de escuridão e dormência em que ela vivia antes.
Eu amei esse livro, Cassie é uma mulher traumatizada, mas ela continua seguindo em frente, mais por causa pelo bem das pessoas ao redor dela e que a amam do que por si mesma. E é esse amor pelo próximo que a faz forte, embora fraca.
Luca é um babaca no começo do livro, mas acaba se redimindo. Porém, eu tive muita raiva dele quando ele continou escondendo seu passado de Cassie, mesmo tendo sido tão firme quanto à necesseidade de Cassie se abrir pra ele para que a relação deles pudesse seguir em frente.

You and Only You - Sharon Sala

I was given an ARC in exxchange of a honest review.

As a fan of Sharon Sala work, I must say I felt honored when they accept my request of this ARC in netgalley. And this book was just as awesome as all the other books by Sala.
LilyAnn used to be a Southern Belle, but now she´s a woman with no life beyond her job as a cashier at the town´s drugstore because she got caught up in the past.
Mike Dalton is in love with Lily Ann since tenth grade, but she could never see beyond her deceased fiancee.
11 years has passed and just now LilyAnn is starting to living again, she´s losing weight, taking care of her health and feeling again, after 11 years of watch the life passing by. But she´s doing for the wrong reasons.
This book is a life lesson, we can see through LilyAnn´s eyes how we let our lives goes by without thought of all the time we waste in pointless things or persons.
LilyAnn starts as a fragile person, but while the story will revealing its plots and twists LilyAnn will revealing her backbone is back. She´s full of life and joy again and standing up for herself.
Matt Dalton is the best man for her, but I still think that if he had take the matter at hands they would be together and happy a lot sooner.
The story is well written, fast paced, full of plots, twists, intrigue, tension. The characters are tridimensional.
Told in various point of view, this book had me hooked from the start till the end.
In the end has an excerpt of the next book in the series, and I must say with all certainty that I will die of anxiety waiting for it. I´m already in love with Johnny Pine.

Como uma fã do trabalho de Sharon Sala eu tenho que dizer que me senti honrada quando minha solicitação do ARC desse livro foi aceita no netgalley. E este livro foi tão maravilhoso quanto os outros livros dela que li.
LilyAnn costumava ser uma bela do sul, mas agora ela é uma melhor sem vida além do trabalho como caixa da farmácia da cidade onde mora, pq ela ficou presa no passado.
Mike Dalton é apaixonado por LilyAnn desde o oitavo ano, mas ela nunca conseguiu ver além do seu noivo  morto.
11 anos se passaram e apenas agora LilyAnn esta´recomeçando a viver. Ela está perdendo peso, cuidando de sua saúde e voltando a sentir depois de todos esses anos deixando a vida passar por entre seus dedos. Mas, ela está fazendo isso pelas razões erradas.
Esse livro traz uma lição de vida, nós conseguimos ver através de LilyAnn como nós deixamos a vida nos escapar nos preocupando com coisas ou pessoas inúteis.
LilyAnn começa como uma pessoa frágil, mas enquanto a história vai revelando suas tramas e reviravoltas LilyAnn vai se revelando como a pessoa forte que costumava ser antes de deixar a vida lhe escapar. Ela se torna cheia de vida e alegria e não aceita mais levar desaforo pra casa.
Matt Dalton é o melhor homem que pode existir para ela, mas ainda acho que se ele tivesse tomado as rédeas dessa situação há mais tempo eles estariam juntos e felizes há muito mais tempo..A história é muito bem escrita, rápida, cheia de tramas, reviravoltas e tensão. Os personagens tem profundidade.
Contado em vários pontos de vista, esse livro me prendeu desde o começo até o fim.
No fim tem os primeiros capítulos do próximo livros da série e posso dizer com toda a certeza que vou morrer de ansiedade esperando a data de lançamento. Já estou apaixonada pelo Johnny Pine.

Rock Me Two Times (Rock Band #1) - Dawn Ryder

I was given a ARC in exchange of a honesxt review.

Kate is a seamstress. The best leather seamstress, and her company provides service to bikers, rockers, celebrities...
When Toxsin lead guitarist Syon Braden needs her service, they fall in lust at first sight. The chemistry between them is sizzling.
But Kate, wants nothing to do with rock stars, they're all indulgent pricks.
So, Syon signs with her partner a contract Kate must fulfill, she must go on tour with Syon´s band.
This is a well written and fast paced book. It has a asshole of a band manager and four bandmates and friends who comprehends and stands for each other. It also have a lot of sex, too many scalding sex scenes, I strongly recommend you to read this book alone or with your partner, or you will be totally turned on besides some one you should not, like your in-laws, or your kids.

Kate é uma costureira, especializada em costurar couro, e a empresa dela presta serviço para motoqueiros, roqueiros, celebridades...
When o guitarrista da banda Toxsin, Syon Braden precisa dos serviços dela, eles sentem luxúria à primeira vista. A química entre eles é crepitante. Mas, Kate não quer nada com rock stars, eles todos são idiotas indulgentes.
Então, Syon assina um contrato com o sócio dela que Kate deve cumprir, ela tem que ir na tour com a banda de Syon.
Este é um livro bem escrito e de leitura rápida.
Tem um arrogante gerente de banda a quatro colegas de banda e amigos que se compreendem e se apoiam. Também tem muitas cenas de sexo, tantas e tantas cenas de sexxo escaldante que eu recomendo fortemente que você leia este livro quando estiver só ou com seu parceiro, ou você pode ficar completamente excitada do lado de pessoas que não deveria, como seus sogros ou filhos.

Denial (Careless Whispers #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

Ella is in denial, after being mugged she lost her memory and now she´s in a strange country alone and injured. Kayden is the first face she see when she wake up, and she feels instantly drawn to him.

It was a nice book, with a lot of steamy hot scenes and also a interesting plot full of intrigue and tension. 

As a fan of Lisa Renee books I must say it did not disappointed but as usual finish in a cliffhanger.

Ella is a strong woman, she´s been through a lot but she keeps fighting. And Kayden is the typical alpha male, strong but sweet, at least with Ella. My favorite kind of guy.

The book finished with a lot of unfinished business so I´m waiting for the next one to anser many questions.

Ella está em negação, depois de ter sido assaltada ela perdeu sua memória e agora está em país estranho sozinha e machucada. Kayden é o primeiro rosto que ela vê quando acorda, e ela se sente instataneamente atraída por ele.

Foi um livro legal, com várias cenas quentes e também um enredo interessante cheio de intriga e tensão.
Como uma fã dos livros da Lisa Renee eu devo dizer que não fiquei desapontada, mas que acaba em cliffhanger como sempre.

Ella é uma mulher forte, ela pasoou por muita coisa mas continua lutando. E kaydem é típico macho alfa, forte, mas doce, pelo menos com Ella. Meu tipo favorito de cara.

O livro termina com vários assuntos inacabados então espero que o próximo responda muitas questões.

Damaged Goods (The Damaged Series) - J.C. Hannigan

Everly Daniels is a too shy girl with a terribly low self esteem. She falls in love with Grayson "Dickson" Dixon and she pines for him for years even when he goes away.
When Dickson, oops. When Dixon is back, Everly feels her pull to him isn't diminished, au contraire, is stronger than never.
This is her last year of high school and she feels like she needs to be out of her shell so she can live a little. So, she starts to pay more attention to make up, hair and clothes, and she finally give in to her wish to sing.
While, she´s doing well with school, friends, new friends, music, her relationship with Grayson makes her feel like she´s in a rollercoaster.
He´s constantly pushing her away, and pulling her back.
I Was really angry with him for play with her feelings like that, and with her for allowed him to treat her that way.
I loved this book, it was beautifully written, I could feel Everly anguish with her, and her pull to Grayson which made feel even more angry with him. And feel sorry for him, he´s a mess, but it wasn't said why he´s a mess. I´ll have to wait for the next book to know. 
I loved the way the author approached the lesbian situation with Alicia and Lindsay. I think Lindsay also has feelings for Alicia, but she´s too much afraid to let it show.
I´m anxious to read the next book and see how Everly´s and her band future will developed, I hope they´ll be the next great band and I also hope that when Everly find Grayson again, he had sorted out his problems.
I loved this book so much that I´m not even complainig about the cliffhanger.
If you wanna a giveaway of this book you can click the link:

Everly Daniels é uma garota muito tímida e com uma baixa auto-estima. Ela se apaixona por Grayson "Babaca" Dixon e anseia por ele durante anos, mesmo quando ele vai embora.
Quando o Babaca. Ooops,  Dixon volta, Everly sente que sua atração por ele não diminuiu, pelo contrário, está cada vezx mais forte.
Esse é o último ano dela no colégio e ela sente que precisa sair um pouco de sua concha pra que ela possa viver um pouco. Então ela começa a prestar mais atenção em maquiagem, cabelos e roupas e ela, finalmente, cede a sua vontade de cantar.
Enquanto sua vida na escola, com amigos, novos amigos, música e etc está indo bem, o relacionamento dela com Grayson, faz com que ela se sinta em uma montanha-russa.
Ele fica, constantemente, a distanciando dele e a puxando de volta.
Eu tive muita raiva dele, por ficar brincando assim com seus sentimentos, e dela também, por permitir que ele a tratasse dessa maneira.
Eu amei esse livro, muito bem escrito, eu pude sentir a angústia de Everly por causa de Grayson, e atração dela por ele, o que me fazia sentir ainda mais raiva dele. E sentir pena dele, a cabeça dele é uma bagunça. Mas, não diz completamente pq ele é desse jeito, vou ter que esperar eplo próximo livro pra saber.
Eu amei o modo como a autora abordou o tema do Lesbianismo. Eu acho que Lindsay também ama Alícia mas tem medo de demonstrar.
Estou ansiosa para ler o próximo livro e saber como o futuro de Everly com sua banda vai se desenvolver, eu espero que eles consigam a sorte grande, e eu tb espero que quando o Grayson reencontre a Everly, ele tenha conseguido resolver seus problemas.
Eu gostei tanto desse livro que não estou nem reclamando do cliffhanger.

The Lust List: Kaidan Stone - Nova Raines

This is a 4 books series. I´m making only one review, because they're all short stories and could have been told in only one book.
Harley Wade´s rock star dad just passed away and let her in a terrible situation. And then she meets Kaidan, an asshole in disguise of prince charming.
This book was too much for me. Hailey is too stupid, Rowan is too aggressive toward Hailey, Char is too shallow and Kaidan is  too much an overbearing asshole who likes to play hot and cold just like Perry´s song.

Esta é uma série de 4 livros. Eu estou fazendo apenas uma resenha pq são histórias curtas que poderiam ter sido contadas em apenas um livro.
O pai rock star de Hailey acabou de morrer e a deixou em uma péssima situação. E então ela conhece Kaidan, um babaca disfarçado de príncipe encantado.
Esse livro foi demais pra mim. Hailey é muito bocó, Rowan é muito agressivo com a Hailey, Char é muito superficial e Kaidan é um babaca muito arrogante que gosta de bancar o bipolar com a Hailey., igual a música da Katy Perry.

Wicked Reunion (Wicked White #2) - Michelle A. Valentine

This book was a big no-no for me. I just finished because I requested at netgalley.
It started good.
The book is told in London and Jared´s POV and then and now.
Jared and London are an item since ever, (that´s a little confusing, sometimes say they know each other since kids, and sometimes since junior high).
They´re in college together in junior year, He´s in a sports scholarship, they´re high on life. But, then Jared´s father dies and bad choice after bad choice Jared turns their life to worst. And he leaves everything behind and goes away.
When he´s back 5 years later, London is still pining for him but she married his brother, and that´s the big no-no forementioned You wants to move on, do it, but please look for another gene´s pool for god´s sake.
And for me everything just keeps getting worse.

Esse livro tinha um grande no-no pra mim. Eu só terminei pq eu tinha solicitado no metgalley. Começou bem. A história é contado sob o POV de London e Jared, e em antes e agora.
London e Jared são um casal há muito tempo (Isso é um pouco confuso pq às vezes diz que eles se conhecem desde pequenos e às vezes diz que eles se conheceram no penúltimo ano do ensino médio.) Eles estão no penúltimo ano da faculdade ele tem um bolsa esportiva e a vida deles está perfeitamente nos trilhos. Mas, o pai de Jared morre e Jared faz uma burrada atrás da outra e a vida dele vai de ótima a fundo do poço, em 60 segundos. Então ele vai embora deixando tudo para trás. 5 anos depois ele está de volta e London ainda sente a falta dele, mas ela casou com o irmão do Jared, e esse é o grande no-no que mencionei antes. Vc quer seguir em frente, esquecer o amor da sua vida, blz? Mas, palmordeDeus, vai caçar em outra família. E daí em diante as coisas só ficam pior.

Chasing Beautiful (Chasing #1) - Pamela Ann

This book was a big let down.
It starts really well and than all goes downhill and that's even worst than a book that´s bad from the beginning. Because it gives you hope and than BAM, the hope is shredded at your feet.
Drama queen much? Yeah, a little. But that´s how I felt. I have a ginormous list of books to read and a bigger than ginormous list of books a downloaded to my kindle just because. So, I was reading a lot of beginnings and when I started this one, I thought " Hey, this one, sound nice, I should read it" Oh god, how I regretted.
Sienna is a half-brazilian (just an excuse to say she knows how to samba, let me say I´m brazilian and I don´t know nor want to know how to samba) and half-american, she´s living in London. She´s coming from a bad break-up, her ex (Kyle)cheated on her and then she gets involved with Blake, her hot, rich, and handsome brit. But Kyle´s wants her back, and when she doesn't goes back to him, he starts to use drugs so he can be able to forget the pain( OMG, What a loser) but Blake, who seems to be so perfect is just as retarded as Kyle. And, then we have Troy who also has the hots for Sienna. OMG ² her pussy oozes pheromones.
And then we have her best gay friend, who is all sassy and witty and out of the blue, he tries to off himself. And the book ends in a cliff, maybe we should thrown all the characters down the cliff, so we are all spared to read the continuation to this terrible soap opera.

Esse livro foi uma grande decepção. Ele começa bem, mas tudo vai ladeira abaixo, e isso pra mim é pior do que um livro que já começa mal, pq nos dá esperança e aí Bam, sua esperança está em pedaços ao seus pés.
Muito dramática? Talvez um pouco. Mas foi como eu me senti. Eu tenho uma lista enorme de livros pra ler, mas às vezes eu gosto de ler algo que não está na lista, então eu comecei alguns livros até achar um que prendesse minha atenção e quando eu comecei esse eu pensei " Ei, esse parece legal, eu acho q vou ler" Ai meu Pai, como eu me arrependo.
Sienna é metade brasileira (o q é apenas uma desculpa pra ela saber sambar, eu tenho q dizer q eu sou brasileira e eu nem sei e nem quero saber como sambar) metade americana e mora em Londres.
Ela acabou de passar por uma dolorosa separação com o ex-namorado que a traiu e acaba se envolvendo com Blake, um britânico rico, bonito e gostoso. Mas, Kyle a quer de volta e quando ela o rejeita ele se volta pras drogas, pra ajudar a esquecer a dor de perdê-la( AMD, que perdedor), mas Blake, que no começo parece perfeito é tão  abestado quanto o Kyle. E pra completar ainda tem o Troy que tb anda correndo atrás da perereca pegando fogo da Sienna,  AMD² A perereca dela exala feromônios. E pra completar mais ainda ela tem o habitual amigo gay, lépido e faceiro e dançarino que do nada simplesmente tenta se matar. E o livro acaba, nesse horrível cliff. Deixa eu ir ali me jogar na BR por favor.
