Getting Schooled by Emma Chase

REVIEWED BY

Getting Schooled (Getting Some, #1)Getting Schooled by Emma Chase
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Getting Schooled by Emma Chase

I always have high expectations of Emma Chase: her books are always filled with warmth, humor, and great characters. Getting Schooled was no exception and I enjoyed this second-chance romance so very much.

This isn't your somewhat typical second-chance romance though. Garrett and Callie didn’t break up in anger. They didn’t have a huge fight and call things off. There wasn’t even another party involved in the demise of their relationship. Instead, they’d made a wise yet heartbreaking decision to call things off when they went to different colleges. Callie rarely returned home for visits, going on to eventually obtain a much-worked for position as Executive Producer of the Fountain Theater Company while Garrett stayed home to become a high-school history teacher and the football coach.

When hilarious circumstances force Callie to return home and look after her parents, she takes up a temporary position -at the same high school as Garrett- as the new theater teacher. Watching these two reconnect was so nice. Things weren’t overly rushed but the feelings they had for each other had never really died so that meant that they didn’t have to work past anger and hurt which was great. The book wasn’t riddled with angst so that was a plus in my opinion. Overall, I thought it was great book that had me smiling and swooning throughout.

One WeekOne Week by Roya Carmen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Sometimes I like the idea of a twisted married couples, three-in-the-marriage kind of book and when I do, Roya Carmen is one of the authors that springs to mind. ONE WEEK did have a familiarity in terms of reminiscence of The Ground Rules, but there were differences.

Gabriella starts an online connection with another artist on Instagram and feelings connect. Gabi is married to a very selfish man, John. I couldn’t stand John, his self-centredness, arrogance and I wasn’t surprised by the revealing of his character. Eli, the artist on Instagram was a nice guy, but I couldn’t fathom his pursuit of Gabi, knowing her circumstances. Gabi was a bit insipid for my taste.

The story is fairly absorbing, a twisted ride of betrayal but I did have problems connecting to any of the main charcters. I’m not sure what I wanted from the culmination of the story but I felt conflicted and I also found the ending abrupt.

Roya Carmen sure knows how to twist you up into a knot, question your own personal ethics and cause wringing of hands. This is a fairly angsty tale. I know what I’m getting when I read her books and no doubt I’ll be back for more.

The Problem With Him by Rachel Higginson

The Problem With Him (Opposites Attract, #3)The Problem With Him by Rachel Higginson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

I blew through this book in just over 24 hours because I couldn't put it down, if I'd been on holiday, I'd have managed it in one sitting. I have loved the OPPOSITES ATTRACT series so much and book three did not let me down. In fact, Wyatt and Kaya gave me serious Vera and Killan vibes but in a different way, so I was in a total happy place.

What was interesting about Wyatt, now Executive Chef of Lilou and his sous chef Kaya, was that they'd been fierce friends for five years but with Killan leaving and Wyatt taking over as EC, they became friends who only really fight (less of the friends). So this was a friends-to-lovers and frienemies story line that worked so well.

Kaya was the kind of feisty heroine I could totally get behind. She was driven and she was focused and yet there were occasional vulnerabilities that spoke of realness. Wyatt was a lot of these things too but he was 'yell-y' as described by Kaya and all of his staff.

"He dipped his head and looked at me from beneath lush lashes. My uterus jumped up and down in my body like it was trapped in a CrossFit session against its will."

The hot, delicious tension between these two was palpable and I observed with my mouth kind of open. The banter, the sniping, the veiled flirtation was everything. It was a slow-burn which is my favourite kind of burn and the end result was everything I wanted.

I need to speak about the cover, which isn't my favourite but covers aren't usually make or break for me. However, it did put me off a little as the previous two covers rock my world. What I am saying here is, don't let this cover put you off if you don't like it, because the words inside are addictive fabulousness.

This series is shaping up to be one of my absolute favourite contemporaries and I'm excited that there will be one more.

Keep Away: A Keeper Novella by Jillian Liota

Keep Away: A Keeper NovellaKeep Away: A Keeper Novella by Jillian Liota
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 - 4 stars

I've been pretty excited about being back in THE KEEPER world, RJ and Mack left such an impression that it's still with me over a year later. I knew KEEP AWAY was Charlie and Jeremy but I was a little grey on remembering them completely, so I did a skim through The Keeper to refresh myself.

Charlie is RJ's best friend so it was interesting to see Ms Perfect at the fore of this tale. I quickly realised that Charlie wasn't as privileged and peachy as I remembered. Jeremy, RJ's brother is a great brother, pretty ideal but he wasn't ideal boyfriend material.

KEEP AWAY is a tale of two halves, a past and present take on these two. I don't mind the past-present narrative style but I have to admit that Charlie and Jeremy were both immature and slightly irritating as their younger selves (aren't we all). We definitely see the best of them in the contemporary part of this book. I really enjoyed the flawed Jeremy, the slams of realisation he had over how he came across and his general character growth.

"Love isn't a feeling - it's a verb. It's an action word, Jeremy. It's something you do, not how you feel."

Charlie remained a character I liked but didn't love and I think some of that is probably because of this being a novella, there aren't more words to sketch the same depth of character.

The strengths of this read sit in the slow development of connection and feelings in adulthood, the move away from all things 'insta-love' and the general Keeper-world. This is definitely a lighter read than The Keeper and I could have handled a full novel of these two.

Jillian Liota has followed up well with KEEP AWAY and I remain excited about what she will write next, connected to this story and context or not. I am convinced she is a talent to watch.

The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young

The Fragile OrdinaryThe Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

THE FRAGILE ORDINARY is a coming of age read as much as it is YA. It centres around Comet, an emotionally neglected 16-17 year old young woman who is finding herself, her confidence and her direction in life. There is a boy, an American boy, Tobias King. He was boy-man swoony and this had all the ingredients for a sweet read.

Comet’s character was a little quirky, her fashion sense stood out but she was pretty shy and sometimes reclusive from socialising. She had two friends, one of which I really struggled to agree label of ‘friend’. I felt exactly the same about the label ‘parents’ for Kyle and Carrie. They were emotionally dead towards her and I intensely disliked them, not enjoying this aspect of the story.

For some reason, THE FRAGILE ORDINARY did not grab me fully. I have read most of Samantha Young’s books and this is unusual for me. The characters I liked but didn’t love, the story line just didn’t excite me or keep me absorbed, so I struggled at times to keep up momentum of reading. I am a big YA fan, so I’m not sure why I didn’t connect and why it felt slow. I’m hoping the next book by Samantha Young will take me back to the crush-like feeling I normally have over her books.

The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient, #1)The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The enthusiasm and feelings are just rolling off me on finishing this book. It has given me such ‘smushy’ feelings at various junctures through the book and I am all toothy smiles and vacant stares now. THE KISS QUOTIENT is one of those truly memorable romances that are both real and perfect.

You’d have to be under a rock to not already have heard of this book and whilst I’ve heard lots of buzz from friends and my feed, I haven’t read one review. Therefore, knowing very little about the content, these characters were an immediate sneak attack of grabby hands to my brain. I felt complete absorption over Stella’s situation and plan to improve her social skills and sexual abilities with the aim to become girlfriend material. Stella knew herself through and through and the Stella I got to know was just total, lovable quirkiness.

Michael conjured all sorts of visuals in my head, each one rather delectable because that’s exactly what Michael is. I enjoyed the slow unpeeling of his character, meeting his family and getting to see the stand-up guy that he was. Michael with Stella was perfection, he saw, he understood, he valued...and I swooned, again and again.

The chemistry was mighty fine and each scene so wonderfully written. I lived in their moments and enjoyed being a fly on the wall.

Helen Hoang has invaded my world and I’m not letting her go. She wrote beautifully, from the heart with a tangibility that is unusual. I cannot wait to devour more from her and I’ve already planned a re-read for this book on my summer vacation.

Save The Date is a fun friends to lovers romance. Erin and Reese made a pact at 15 to marry at 30
If neither were married. They remained closed friends, dated other people, and moved forward with their lives.

Reese moved to where Erin lived for a job and for her. His true heart since he was a teenager. His road to winning Erin over was entertaining and sweet.

I enjoyed their story and the characters. Aaron’s wrote clever dialogue and a compelling story.

Cry Baby was such a great story. YA or not, Tristan and Riley had an epic story that needed to be told.

Inner city gangs and poverty, huge realistic problems, were the obstacles these young adults were trying to navigate. I was drawn in and invested in their lives from the start.

I was angry at the things they were forced to endure because of the life they were born into. There were some great secondary characters that made the story have such depth.

Truly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author. If you are looking for a gritty, griping story Cry Baby is the perfect book for you!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Varlet and the Voyeur by Penny Reid and LH Cosway

I thought this was a great end to a series. The story of Will and Josey had me engrossed from the beginning to the end.

These two become unlikely housemates after Josey’s parents gently shoved her out of the nest, and into the great wilderness. After a brief stay with her bestie, a solution comes to hand: she goes and stays with Will who needs Josey to keep him in check as much as Josey needs a place to stay. They keep things on a friendly level basically until Will is set up on a date and jealousy rears it’s ugly head.

Josey has always been a bit of an odd duck, preferring to spend time with the aforementioned parents and she lacks a brain to mouth filter which I found hilarious! Will was a sweet guy who had reasons for his life choices and I respected that while at the same time thinking he deserved a gentle kick to the bum. Will and Josey made a pairing that was weird on the surface yet made much sense when you looked deeper. I enjoyed their story even though the lack of communication when it counted drove me batty.

The Secret ThiefThe Secret Thief by Nina Lane
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Secret Thief by Nina Lane

Eve is a art historian and professor who has - through no fault of her own - had her career and life completely upended and subsequently isn’t welcome in any museum or college. In fact, she’s barely welcome anywhere. She escapes the talk and heads to her late uncles home in coastal Maine hoping to find employment there. She struggles in the same vein even here until the town recluse and lighthouse keeper gives her a job cataloguing and organizing a very special collection. Flynn is strange, quiet, secretive. By his own definition, he’s also dangerous and warns Eve away. These two both have plenty of secrets between them and are inevitably drawn to each other.

It’s hard to review this book. I’m feeling lukewarm about the story, the characters, everything. It was all just ok. I’m not sure what was missing but I feel like I just couldn’t connect well enough with the characters. I couldn’t believe their connection to each other and the book was a little bit of a struggle overall. Having said that, while the story didn’t hit the spot for me, the writing was great and I’d likely read this author down the track but again, The Secret Thief was just ok.

The Varlet and the Voyeur (Rugby, #4)The Varlet and the Voyeur by L.H. Cosway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars

I launched into this book and launched out the other side a warm, amused and content bunny. I’ve loved some of this series and only liked some of the others but THE VARLET AND THE VOYEUR was clear love for me. I will say there felt to be a bit less sports context in this one, which is a little sad.

My love starts and ends with Will, the guarded, strong, silent and misunderstood Flanker of the rugby team. He’s amid a nasty sex scandal that is mostly fabricated, when actually he just likes watching...watching only, because of reasons. Will was intruiging and he just captured my interest so easily. Where Josey was a chatterbox, inappropriate and sometimes ridiculous, Will was reserved, introverted and wary. I loved the development of his character and this friendship.

Josey seemed initially to be a bit of a ‘princess’ but my judgement was soon knocked on the head as I got to know her. It wasn’t instant like for me with Josey, she was a ‘grower’ and that growth came from seeing the friendship develop between these roommates. Some of the awkward dialogue between these two made me snort-laugh and I felt generally amused for much of this read. Josey did still irritate me just occasionally, but on the whole, Will was the making of Josey. He balanced her.

I pretty much adored all the chemistry goings-on between this couple. It was funny, it was serious, it was page-turning. I have lots of highlighted quotes but they all seem to have the word vagina in them!

So, V&V joins book one as my favourites of this series. Reid and Cosway do work together and pull off seamless writing of a couple so well.

Almost ImpossibleAlmost Impossible by Nicole Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed every page of this book and I just wish it had been a little longer and perhaps a little deeper at times. Nicole Williams has always had solid YA roots and this contemporary tale with an unusual approach to a trope was pretty fantastic.

Jade had a background that I really enjoyed reading about. Her entrance to California for some much-needed roots in her life was refreshing, her home with her aunt, uncle and cousins left me wanting more details especially the aunt/uncle relationship. However, the focus of this story was Jade and the boy across the road, Quentin. They met in a rather fractious manner, with dirty looks and a little seething.

“I wasn’t sure I felt that was his way of making peace or declaring war, but I knew that either way, this boy would be a battle every step of the way.”

These two together were delightful reading, their connection, dialogue and real life playing out was easy to sink into. Quentin was happy to be the one to show Jade what teenage life should really be...fun, a beach party, sneaking out here or there and being care-free. In actual fact, Quentin was not at all what he seemed.

I got a sense of where the story was going late on and I’m really impressed with where Nicole Williams took the story, blowing preconceptions out of the water.

I know there is one more to come of these YA contemporaries and I can only say that I am looking forward to it after book two.

Tattered (Lark Cove, #1)Tattered by Devney Perry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank goodness for the extra scary story line in TATTERED, by Devney Perry because the first bit of the book was a little slow for me. I had my fingers crossed that a hook, line and sinker side story was going to pop my eyes wide open, and I was going to get the book I was hoping for!

Perhaps it’s me, or the genre of books I’m reading as of late, but I’m having a hard time reconciling the second chance at love theme and the hopefulness I have at some originality within the genre. It’s really hard to write something that’s so saturated in the contemporary romance scene and have it keep you on your toes, but Perry was able to suck me in from the middle of the book straight until the end- thankfully!

I just knew there had to be something up Perry’s sleeve!

There was.

Devney surprised me with her ability to really take your run of the mill book and spice it up quite a bit. Not only was the chemistry between Thea and Logan, spicy, but the creepy factor kept me coming back for more. The last 50% had me attached to my kindle like glue and I couldn’t put his book down.

Perry’s witting style really ebs and flows. It’s really quite poetic at times. I often find myself daydreaming when she writes a particularly intense scene and I just envision it playing out before me. I absolutely love that about her as an author.

There is always room on my kindle for a Devney Perry book and I look forward to the next instalment of this series!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 🌟

This is the first book I have read from this author in this series. Being a standalone, you will not feel like you have missed out on anything, as you get an insight to the previous two books and their titles. Maybe even a hint at what is to come as well.

Lincoln Bennett is from the wrong side of town, and his upbringing is one that will make your heart melt for him and what he and his sister Chloe had to endure. But when he gets knocked down, he bounces back up stronger and ready to take on the next struggle. He certainly is a little bent just like the rest of us, but he had lots of qualities that were adorable. What started out as having fun, he starts something with his best friend, Rhett's little sister Adley Allen. But for both of them, feelings developed way before they initiated their intimate relationship. They had know each other for some time and Adley was smitten from the onset. Their love story is one that is sweet, and probably very predictable for most, but was a fun read none the less, it just didn't wow me. And although their sexy times were passionate and steamy, they started to become repetitive, which gets boring. I feel if you have read the previous books and loved them, you will enjoy this book too.

Kingsley in his twenties. I don't really need to say much more. That is five stars right there.

Love the Chateau. Love Kingsley. Love Madame.

The numerous references in this book are amazing. The Story of O and Alice in Wonderland just to name a few. Reisz is known for it and she continues to impress. Erotic thriller is the best description for The Chateau. Plenty of mystery, plenty of sadism and plenty of naughty Kingsley.

Kingsley's antics are amusing as always. I enjoyed getting to see a glimpse into the young Kingsley. Madame is an intriguing character that drove the story (outside of my love for all things Kingsley). She is mysterious, funny, sadistic and insightful. A tamer female version of Soren. Now don't get excited I didn't same tame or the same...I said tamer than Soren and that really isn't hard to do since he is a pretty sadistic man, and oh how I love him.

This is another great adventure that Tiffany takes us on and we see how Kingsley derived some of his ideas for his future endeavors. Loved it and would highly recommend it.

Bull never stood a chance once Gwendolyn set her sights on him. In the other stories Gwendolyn seemed so innocent and shy. This story she was kinky little vixon. She knew what she wanted and went after it.

Mrs. Merriweather is such a loving woman. You never know what will come out of her mouth. She had me busting out laughing in many parts.

The mystery and fast action were a win for me. The only place I wasn't 100% in love was their first meeting. I won't say what and cause any spoilers, but the garden scene just felt...too soon.

I love both of these characters. They had a softness about their love. I connected with Elle being the strong female lead, a spot usually reserved for the male characters. Seth in his silent acceptance of the consequences of his past showed such a strong inner strength that you had to love!
