On My Shelf: The Edge Of Never by: J.A. Redmerski

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I grabbed this book for my kindle ages and ages ago... pretty sure I grabbed it early in my blogging days. I remember a time when everyone was reading it and loving it. For whatever reason I never got around to it. I am 100% positive that the Teresa who bought this book would have adored it, but it's today Teresa that I'm not so sure about and it wouldn't even be the books fault. At this point, I've probably read a bunch of books similar to this and even though this came first it didn't for me (if that makes any sense). So basically I just need to know if this one stands the test of time. 

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Mini Review: Teaching Willow: Session Four by: Paige James

Release Date: May 2, 2014
Goodreads

"Find out what happens in the exciting conclusion...

After everything we’ve been through, after all that has happened, it’s finally time for us to come clean. Both of us.

There’s so much I want to tell him, and so much I want to know. But there’s still one thing that could ruin it all, one thing that could change the game completely.

How can I put this weight on him? But then again, how can I not? He deserves to know."


My Thoughts:

This was my favorite session of the four. I just loved how everything came together in this one and that we finally got all of our answers. Ebon and Willow have both made mistakes, but they both acknowledge that and move to make amends in this one. It’s clear they love each other and just needed to move beyond all the hurt and lies. And then it doesn’t help when there is interference from outside forces. Willow’s parents are a piece of work and so are Ebon’s. But I loved watching them both move beyond their past and their families. I was so happy with the way this wrapped up and all the angst and heartache was worth it.

"Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend, Sebastian, know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be one of opportunities and chances. 

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. 

Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian could never forgive her for what happened. 

For what she let happen.  

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?" 

It's JLA.... obviously I need this book in my life.

If There's No Tomorrow will be released on September 5, 2017.
What are you waiting on?

Book Review: Midnight Target (Killer Instincts #8) by: Elle Kennedy

Release Date: April 25, 2017
from Berkley
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher and voluntarily provided a review.
"From the New York Times bestselling author of The Score and Midnight Revenge...

Four years ago, Cate’s entire life changed when she discovered she was the daughter of a supersoldier. But Jim Morgan’s overprotectiveness has pushed her away. These days, she’s working as a freelance photographer and living the dangerous life Jim never wanted for her.

When Cate snaps a photo linking a corrupt South American politician with the leader of a notorious drug cartel, her mercenary father leads a team to rescue her—only to get shot and critically wounded in the process.

As Morgan’s operatives rally together on a revenge mission, they’re faced with new alliances and old heartaches. Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton, the man who broke her heart two years ago, while Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port resurface after years apart to finally try to deal with everything they’d left unsaid.

Soon it’s all-out war between the cartel and the mercenaries—with two couples caught in the middle of the blood feud. Love and redemption are within their reach...but first they have to make it home alive."

My Thoughts:

Midnight Target was one of my most anticipated reads of 2017 and this book met every single one of my expectations. I absolutely loved this book and it is one of my favorites of the series. This book delivered everything I have come to love about this series.

Cate and Ash had fantastic chemistry and I adored them together. Cate has become such a formidable force and I adored her. She is strong and feisty and takes no crap from anyone. And Ash is just sex on a stick. He is so easy to fall for and I loved him. These two together were incredible and I loved their dynamic.

But let’s be honest here… Sully and Liam are the ones who stole the show. Their story has been building for what feels like forever and it was so wonderful to see it all finally come to a head. I absolutely adore those two and they ripped my heart to shreds. The tension between them is ridiculous and I just love them. These two have been my favorites for a while and I was so glad to finally see their story come to a close. It broke my heart in the process but it was wonderful.

Midnight Target was great in that it brought the whole gang back together. Almost everyone makes an appearance and I loved catching up with everyone. I have loved this series and I loved seeing everyone again. Elle Kennedy has created such a great cast of characters and I am so sad to have to say goodbye.

As always, the suspense delivered with Midnight Target. There was action and drama and fighting and risks and I ate it all up. The stakes are as high as ever and she did not hold back with this one. I always love how Elle balances the suspense with romance because she does it perfectly.

Midnight Target was a fantastic read and I loved every single second of it. This is a series I know I will read again and again.

On My Shelf: Tumble & Fall by: Alexandra Coutts

I won this book a while ago at a book signing. It sounds good but the reviews for this one are not so good. Since the overall consensus is not so good, I'm curious to see what some of my fellow bloggers thought of this one.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?
