Mini Review: Sinful Distraction (Temperance Falls: Selling Sin #3) by: London Hale

Release Date: August 1, 2017
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"She’s the one thing he won’t give up on
The calls started a year ago. I needed an easy release, and he was there, for a price. One call turned into two, and before I knew it, I was falling for the voice on the other end of the line. When he shows up and introduces himself as the newest firefighter on the island, I’m terrified...at first. As the mayor, the last thing I need is a scandal. But Riley won’t take no for an answer, and I’m finding it hard to refuse him.

He’s a distraction she can’t afford
Kate, the mayor of Temperance Falls, has a naughty little secret. Except I’m not so little and a hell of a lot more than just naughty. A year of weekly phone calls with our identities disguised has left me craving more. Being together could ruin everything she’s worked for, but there’s no turning back. Now that we’ve actually met, now that I’ve had a taste, nothing will stand in my way of making her mine."

My Thoughts:

If you visit here regularly, you know I have become obsessed with Temperance Falls. Sinful Distraction was no exception to this and I absolutely adored Riley and Kate. Kate is a strong and successful woman and I loved her all the more for that. And I loved that this is exactly what Riley loved about her. So far, Temperance Falls has delivered two hot cops a DILF, a sexy doctor, a dirty pastor, and now we get a firefighter. THANK YOU LONDON HALE. Riley is beyond swoon and I loved him. I loved how he knew he wanted and loved Kate and just went for it without hesitation. I also loved that he was never intimidated by Kate’s strength or drive or job. Their chemistry was off the charts. And anyone who wanted to see the May/December trope flipped on its head with an older woman and a younger guy, this book is for you. Loved that dynamic and loved seeing that twist on this trope. This series has been so much fun and I’ve loved every second of it and I cannot wait until I can go back. These books are just so perfect when you need something short and sweet and super super dirty. They balance the sweet and the sexy so well and give you that swoony romance while also delivering the steam.

On My Shelf: Silver by: Talia Vance

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.


This one has been sitting on my kindle for a really long time. I was drawn in by the pretty cover and the description sounded super intriguing. As per usual, the book then proceeded to sit unloved on my kindle until I forgot about it. As I was scrolling through recently I saw it and fell in love with the cover all over again. So now I need my bloggy peeples help. 

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

Mini Review: The Sweetest Goodbye (Roadmap To Your Heart #3.5) by: Christina Lee

Release Date: January 13, 2017
Goodreads | Amazon

"Billie Montgomery was always known as the sick kid with the therapy dog. Dylan Bowden never
had two nickels to rub together, let alone a true home to call his own. The two have been best friends since high school. They’re always there for each other, so when Billie opens his own bakery called Montgomery’s Sweets no one supports him better than Dylan.

The business is a success, and Billie figures he’s got everything he needs. Everything except the guy he’s been saving himself for, no matter how often Dylan tells him it’s time to move on. After a night out turns into a sexy exchange between the best friends, they pretend like nothing happened. Besides, Billie’s still holding a torch for somebody else, and Dylan has always been a considerable flirt.

When Billie’s first love unexpectedly breezes through town and life throws him a pretty rough curve ball, will Billie seek solace in the one man he’s pining for, or the only guy who’s ever protected his heart?"

My Thoughts:

When I read The Deepest Blue, I immediately fell in love with Billie. So naturally I was super excited for this novella. I really enjoyed this story and I loved Billie and Dylan so so much. This was a great friends to lovers story and really shows that what you think you want isn’t always what you need. This is the kind of book that just made my heart happy and I loved watching these two come together. This was a sweet yet steamy read and I devoured it. Christina Lee delivered again and I’m so glad she gave us this story.

"Having barely escaped the clutches of the Guard, Sefia and Archer are back on the run, slipping into the safety of the forest to tend to their wounds and plan their next move. Haunted by painful memories, Archer struggles to overcome the trauma of his past with the impressors, whose cruelty plagues him whenever he closes his eyes.

With Sefia’s help, Archer travels across the kingdom of Deliene rescuing boys while she continues to investigate the mysterious Book and secrets it contains. But the more battles they fight, the more fights Archer craves, until his thirst for violence threatens to transform him from the gentle boy Sefia knows to a grim warrior with a cruel destiny. As Sefia begins to unravel the threads that connect Archer’s fate to her parents’ betrayal of the Guard so long ago, she and Archer must figure out a way to subvert the Guard’s plans before they are ensnared in a war that will pit kingdom against kingdom, leaving their future and the safety of the entire world hanging in the balance."

20 Thoughts I Had While Reading My Hellion, My Heart (Lords Of Essex #3) by Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan

Release Date: July 24, 2017
from Entangled Publishing: Select Historical
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"He fought battles for crown and country. She waged war for his heart.

Lord Henry Radcliffe, the scarred but sinfully sexy Earl of Langlevit, is a beast. The only way Henry can exorcise the demons of his war-ravaged past is through intense physicality. In and out of bed. An endeavor that has no shortage of willing participants.

Intent on scandalizing London, Princess Irina Volkonsky is a hellion and every gentleman’s deepest desire...except for one. Irina knows better than to provoke the wickedly forbidding earl, but she will stop at nothing short of ruination to win the heart of the only man she’s ever loved.

But when one scandalous kiss makes dangerous passions ignite, neither of them can fight their sizzling attraction. When a sinister plot emerges to threaten them both, they will have to fight one last battle, this time for the ultimate prize...love."

My Thoughts:

1. I love this series. I am ready!

12. Okay but really this betting is getting out of hand.

14. Henry. You really do deserve more. Listen to the smart ladies telling you so. *sobs*

I grabbed this one at BEA a few years ago almost at random. I walked by the booth, saw a pretty cover and that the author was signing and just got on line. Of course it has now been years and I still haven't gotten around to this one. I still love the cover and it does sound really cool but you know how it is: so many books so little time.

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

Mini Review: Sin In San Fran (Great Exploitations #4) by: Nicole Williams

Release Date: February 11, 2014
Goodreads | Amazon

"Eve isn’t used to failure. Especially when it comes to her Errands, but that’s exactly where she finds herself waking up in a hospital bed, bruised and bloodied.

Not only has the Tucker Errand been derailed, Henry Callahan’s is about to do the same. When G informs Eve that the competition is moving in on Henry, she orders her to drop the Tucker Client and get back to Henry, forcing Eve to decide what’s more important: winning the big-time Errands, or keeping her promises to her small-time Clients. Whatever her answer, she knows one thing—she can’t succeed at both without threatening to fail everyone."

My Thoughts:

This serial is crazy addictive. I honestly don’t know why I never finished it when I first started it. This concept is so original and I just love that. I love that it crosses lines and plays with right and wrong. I adore Eve and I also adore Henry. I know we are supposed to believe he did something terrible, but I just don’t buy it. Everything we have seen and learned about Henry up until this point just does not mesh with what we are supposed to believe. I have no idea how Nicole is going to wrap all of this up in one more story but I can’t wait to see how she does.

"In the first book of the Shaw Confessions, the companion series to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer novels, old skeletons are laid bare and new promises prove deadly. This is what happens after happily ever after.

Everyone thinks seventeen-year-old Noah Shaw has the world on a string.

He shouldn’t.

And both are scared that uncovering the truth about themselves will force them apart.

They’re right. " 

Noah Shaw is one of my very favorite characters, so I am so so so excited for more of him. But I will admit that I am also terrified of this book because I need my Noah and Mara to be okay in the end!

Book Review: Daughter Of Smoke And Bone (Daughter Of Smoke And Bone #1) by: Laini Taylor

Release Date: September 27, 2011
from Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon

"Around the world, black hand prints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands", she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?"

My Thoughts:

This is one of those books that has come highly recommended and has been on my TBR for years. One person in particular has been dying for me to read this one (*side eyes my Wifey*). And now is the point when I admit that I have been an idiot putting this book off for so long. My gosh this book was amazing. So so agonizingly wonderful.

Karou is a wonderful heroine. She is smart and funny and so so witty. I adored everything about her. And I also loved Akiva. My poor broken and beaten down Akiva. These two. They make my heart hurt so damn much. I can’t get over how much I love them.

Daughter Of Smoke And Bone is a wonderful story and the writing is some of my favorite of all time. It’s so lyrical and gorgeous and Laini Taylor truly brings this world to life so vividly. It is so easy to get lost in the beautiful prose. At times this book is such a slow burn, but it is the very best kind of slow burn. This book took me by surprise on many occasions. The book did not go how I expected it to at all. It was better. The ending to this book absolutely crushed me. My mouth was left hanging open at the end.

I think my favorite thing about this book though is that there really is no good side. There are characters I like and characters I hate, but they both come from both sides of the war. I think there is something so important about this. This ages long war is not necessarily a war of good vs evil. It’s a war plain and simple with both sides doing terrible and horrible things. And that war forces good people to do terrible things.

Daughter Of Smoke And Bone was a fantastic read. It’s the kind of book that is so achingly good. That leaves your stomach in knots and dreading the outcome but still dying to have your answers. I’ll be needing Days Of Blood And Starlight ASAP.

I picked this one up years ago because it sounds like SUCH a Teresa book. To be honest it still does. I love love love high fantasy! I think I haven't gotten to this one yet mostly because I haven't wanted to commit to another series, but it just sounds so good.

16 Thoughts I Had While Reading Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Release Date: March 14, 2017
from HarperTeen
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s
highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?"

My Thoughts:

1. Alright Beauty and the Beast retelling! Let’s do this!
2. Her Dad is aggravating me.
3. Solomir…. Are you the Beast or Gaston *ponders*
4. Yeva… you is kinda dumb.
5. Where did the dog go? Wasn’t there a dog here? Did I make up a doggo?
6. Yeah sure. Lemme just wear this blindfold. This is all normal.
7. Big broody scary Beast is cranky.
8. Yeah. Me and this Beast are not gonna get along. He doesn’t like the puppers.
9. I’m skimming. I’m skimming. Skim skim skim.
10. Doe Eyes (doggo) is the best character tbh.
11. There really isn’t much dialogue is there. The writing is pretty but I think more dialogue would help me understand the characters better.
12. Where is this magic forest? Is it the same forest just with a magic veil? Is it a new forest? Someone explain.
13. Per above point, I think we skipped the class on World Building 101.
14. Totes magotes saw this twist coming.
15. See, this is what happens when you procrastinate.
16. That was kinda anticlimactic. I was hoping for more from this one.

Wrap Up
So to wrap up, I was disappointed with this one. There was potential there but it just never really grabbed me and I didn’t love any of the characters. I wish I had loved this one but we just didn’t click.

Add To Goodreads

"A thrilling new urban fantasy filled with magic and motorcycle gangs from Jennifer Rush, author of the Altered saga--perfect for fans of Beautiful Creatures.

Eighteen-year-old Jemmie Carmichael has grown up surrounded by magic in the quiet town of Hawthorne, New York. In her world, magic users are called "kindled," and Jemmie would count herself among them if only she could cast a simple spell without completely falling apart. It doesn't help that she was also recently snubbed by Crowe, the dangerous and enigmatic leader of the Black Devils kindled motorcycle gang and the unofficial head of their turf.

When the entire kindled community rolls into Hawthorne for an annual festival, a rumor begins spreading that someone is practicing forbidden magic. Then people start to go missing. With threats closing in from every side, no one can be trusted. Jemmie and Crowe will have to put aside their tumultuous history to find their loved ones, and the only thing that might save them is the very flaw that keeps Jemmie from fully harnessing her magic. For all her years of feeling useless, Jemmie may just be the most powerful kindled of all." 

This one sounds ridiculously good and I cannot wait for it!

Devils & Thieves will be released on October 3, 2017.

Mini Review: Sinful Attraction (Temperance Falls: Selling Sin #2) by: London Hale

Release Date: July 11, 2017
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"She’s an original sin sort of bad
I never should’ve looked at my police officer neighbor the way I did. We were too mismatched, too different to even hope we could be together. Especially seeing as how he could arrest me at any moment for what I did for a living. But Connor couldn’t help being my knight in shining armor, and one last rescue makes me lose what little control I had. To be with him, I have to give up my job and, very possibly, my home on the island. Even then, I don’t know if he can ever forgive me for the sins I can’t wash away.

He’s one of the good guys
From the moment Lola moved into my apartment building, I’ve wanted her. She’s too sweet and seemingly innocent, but it doesn’t stop me from lusting after her. There’s something about the hours she keeps, though. Something about the life she leads that has warning bells going off in my cop brain. Yet I can’t stay away. Not when she needs my help. Not when she needs me. Even if being with her could cost me my future."

My Thoughts:

The queens of smut continue to deliver! Lola and Connor were scorching hot and I loved them. I also loved that this one was best friends to lovers. I love that trope to begin with and then mix in some ridiculously steamy scenes and you are in for a good time. I also love the taboo aspect in these books. These relationships would probably get lots of side eye in the real world, but I love that escape and I love the fantasy of it all. This one was a bit sweeter than some of the others and I really liked that balance. Connor just absolutely adores Lola and it was so so so ridiculously sweet. He was also the perfect blend of protective without being an overbearing asshole. That’s such a fine line and London Hale balanced it perfectly. This was another wonderful trip to Temperance Falls and I cannot wait to go back.

I snagged this one at BEA a few years ago solely because I loved the cover. In person it is just super smooth and eye catching. Then of course it got lost in the mess of BEA books. I went back and read the synopsis and it sounds like the kind of book I've actually been looking for lately because I need more romantic suspense where the heroine is just as badass as the hero. 

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

“I know how to watch my back. I’m the only one that ever has.”

India Maxwell hasn’t just moved across the country—she’s plummeted to the bottom rung of the social ladder. It’s taken years to cover the mess of her home life with a veneer of popularity. Now she’s living in one of Boston’s wealthiest neighborhoods with her mom’s fiancĂ© and his daughter, Eloise. Thanks to her soon-to-be stepsister’s clique of friends, including Eloise’s gorgeous, arrogant boyfriend Finn, India feels like the one thing she hoped never to be seen as again: trash.

But India’s not alone in struggling to control the secrets of her past. Eloise and Finn, the school’s golden couple, aren’t all they seem to be. In fact, everyone’s life is infinitely more complex than it first appears. And as India grows closer to Finn and befriends Eloise, threatening the facades that hold them together, what’s left are truths that are brutal, beautiful, and big enough to change them forever…

Character Interview With Eloise: 

Hi Eloise! Thanks so much for stopping by Readers Live A Thousand Lives! It is a pleasure to have you here.
I like to kick off all my interviews this way, so if you had to choose two words to describe yourself what would they be and why?
Eloise: Hi, I’m happy to be here. Thank you so much for having me. 
As for the two words I’d use to describe myself… loyal and misunderstood. I’ve been friends with the same people since we were in diapers, and those friendships are the most important thing in my life. I’d do anything to protect the people closest to me. Why would I say misunderstood? I think people have certain expectations about me. They see me as just another smart, rich, popular white girl. And I am all those things. However, I’m also more than those things. Thankfully, and sometimes not so thankfully, most people don’t take the time to look any deeper.

And if you have to use two words to describe Finn and India?
Eloise: Loyal and misunderstood :) I’d guess you’d say that’s why we’re friends.

If you could have one day to do anything you wanted, no limitations, what would you do and would you want anyone with you? If so, who?
Eloise: To spend the day as I normally would – at school, with my friends, rehearsing for the school play, hanging out after school. But I’d love to do all those things not as Eloise Fairweather. Not the girl everyone thinks they know. I want to do all those things as the real me— no secrets, no deceptions, just me as I am. The version of me that feels free.

If you could have dinner with one famous person (alive or deceased) who would you want it to be?
Eloise: Either Gertrude Belle Elion or Lauren Bacall. Gertrude was a biochemist who won the Nobel Prize in 1988. She developed the first major drug used to fight Leukemia as well as the first anti-rejection drug for organ transplant patients. Lauren Bacall was my favorite actress. She had everything – intelligence, class, and a presence on screen you just can’t replicate. 

What were your first impressions of India? What made you change your mind about her? 
Eloise: India was very hard to read when we first met which is exactly why I thought she could be dangerous. I didn’t need someone I didn’t trust becoming such a massive part of my personal life. I won’t lie – I did not want her around. However, she has a strength of character I just couldn’t ignore. But my mind wasn’t fully changed until she discovered the truth. It was her reaction in the days after that made me trust her. India has proven to me that she is kind and understanding. She’s a good person. 

Knowing what you know now, if you could go back and do it all over again is there anything you would do differently?
Eloise: I definitely would have tried harder to make India’s life a little easier when she first moved here. Finn’s too. 

This or that: 
Red Vines or Twizzlers? Red Vines
Pepsi or Coke? Coke
Night or Day? Day
Winter or Summer?  Winter

Thanks so much for stopping by Eloise! It was great having you here.
Eloise: Thanks again for having me. It’s been a lot of fun
