Tracy’s review of When We Met by A.L. Jackson, Molly McAdams, Tiffany King and Christina Lee

 

When I first picked up When We Met I thought that these were four unrelated stories by different authors so I was more than pleasantly surprised when I realized that the stories were about the four roommates. Once I read the first story I wanted to know about the other girls in the house and I loved that I didn’t have to wait for their stories!

Behind Her Eyes was a great story with Darryn helping Misha overcome her betrayal by the guy she had been dating the previous year. Darryn has his own secret having to do with his knowledge of that betrayal. While Misha felt deceived once she finds the secret out I never felt that Darryn was a bad guy. Misha was primed and just waiting for someone to screw with her again so she may have overreacted just a touch (imho). I would have liked to have gotten to know Darryn a bit more in this story but I still really liked it.

Saving Me starts off with a bang. Poor Indy has been screwed over by her family and then walks in on her boyfriend with another girl. Not only that but there’s an even bigger betrayal by the jerk and it left my mouth hanging open. Indy is a strong character to put up with all of it. She unfortunately heads down an alcohol and men fueled road to self destruction. Fortunately she has Kier there to save her each Saturday night. I really liked this story as it had two people with pretty heavy pasts coming together. The author didn’t try to make light of either of their situations and I appreciated that as Kiers, especially, was not a pretty one. I loved that they could find happiness together after all they’d been through.

Fouling Out had childhood friends reuniting and falling in love. Dalton and Courtney had been friends when they were kids but Dalton’s basketball dreams and his father (mostly the father) had them pulling away from each other. Courtney is bitter about the loss of Dalton’s friendship but realizes that Dalton is a good guy. I liked the pair together but felt what was supposed to be the conflict between them wasn’t really a conflict at all. It’s there and then quickly resolved…and then story ended abruptly. I think I would have liked to have seen a little more from the couple after their “troubles” had been dealt with, but it was cute story nonetheless.

Beneath Your Layers gave us two people from different sides of the tracks, so to speak. Blake believes that Chloe is snooty due to how she dresses but she’s not. Blake’s aunt has him helping Chloe fix up a store for her fashion internship.   The time spent together putting the store together has them getting to know each other and realizing there’s more to each of them than the thought. It was a sweet romance and I really enjoyed it.

The book as a whole was pretty darned enjoyable. Once I picked it up I didn’t put it down until I was done with all of it. The romances were sometimes very emotional, and a bit surprising, but sweet and tender. It was a good combination of both stories and authors as they flowed together quite nicely.

Rating: 4.25 out of 5

Review: When We Met Anthology

Posted November 12, 2014 by Rowena in Reviews | 0 Comments

when we metRowena’s review of When We Met Anthology by A.L. Jackson, Molly McAdams, Tiffany King and Christina Lee.

Today’s premiere New Adult authors combine their talents to tell four original stories from inside one house.

When four girls decide to live off campus together as juniors at a college in Michigan, they expect it to be their best year yet. Little do they know, it’s a year that will change the rest of their lives.

BEHIND HER EYES by A.L. Jackson
Unable to live down her ex-boyfriend’s deception, Misha is determined to avoid betrayal. When, the new guy next door, Darryn starts to get under her skin, her defenses start to crumble. But trusting Darryn seems impossible, especially if he’s not sure he can trust himself.

SAVING ME by Molly McAdams

FOULING OUT by Tiffany King
Working at a sports bar, Courtney has become a pro at sidestepping propositions from arrogant jocks—which makes her a more elusive catch for campus basketball star Dalton than he expected. But when he falls for the saucy waitress, Dalton will have to rethink his game plan to prove he’s not the jerk Courtney expects.

BENEATH YOUR LAYERS by Christina Lee
In order to ace her fashion internship, Chloe must team up with local college dropout and set builder, Blake—much to her chagrin. But after some “hands-on” experience, Chloe will have to ask herself if Blake factors into her carefully laid plans…

Behind Her Eyes by A.L. Jackson: I’d never heard of this author before starting this story but I was hopeful that I’d enjoy it. I thought it sounded like a cute NA story and while there were parts that I did like, for the most part, I just couldn’t get into the story.  Misha was burned pretty bad by her last boyfriend (who was a complete dickhead) and so she’s sworn off boys and almost left college because of what the dickhead did to her. Her roommates and friends convince her to come back to school, so she does.

When she comes back, she runs into her new neighbor. The guy that took over her ex’s bedroom in the house next door. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with him but he’s super hot and he’s interested in her and he’s always around so it’s no wonder that they develop feelings.

I wanted to like this story but I wanted Misha to become stronger over the course of the story but I didn’t feel like that really happened. I wanted her to not need Darryn to fight her battles for her but he did and then there’s Darryn. I don’t know if I could ever forgive him for the secrets he kept from Misha. Not as quickly as she did, anyway. Maybe if this was a longer story but when I finished this one, I was left feeling disappointed and still highly annoyed with all characters.

I did like the roommates in Misha’s house. I was intrigued by all of them, really. Especially Indy.

Grade: 2 out of 5

Saving Me by Molly McAdams: Unlike the last story, I went into this story thinking that I wasn’t going to like it at all. I was burned by a McAdams story before and I haven’t been able to give her another go ever since. I was surprised with how easy it was to fall into this story. Both Indy and Kier were interesting characters and at first, I thought it was ridiculous that Indy really didn’t know who the hell Kier was and who the hell was taking care of her drunk ass every Saturday night.

But as we start to really get to know both Kier and Indy, I came to like the both of them. Indy, what a shitty life card she’d been handed. My heart went out to her more than once and then we’re hit with Kier’s story and holy batballs his story just about broke my heart all over. They were both dealing with shitty situations and I was glad that they found each other.

I may have been scared to try McAdams again before this story but I don’t think I am anymore.

Grade: 4 out of 5

Fouling Out by Tiffany King: Oh man, when I found out that the hero of this story was a basketball star, I was thrilled to dig into it. I am a basketball fanatic and I love, love, love my Lakers (even though they’re not the best right now) so I was pretty stoked to get to know Dalton.

I’ve only read one story by King and I wasn’t exactly wowed by it but there’s not much you can get wrong with a basketball hero for me so I went into this one with lots and lots of hope. I did enjoy the story. A lot more than I did the Jackson story but it wasn’t my favorite of the bunch. I thought Courtney was a bit of a snob in the beginning and even though she  comes around and I understood why she was acting the way that she was toward him, it still got on my nerves.

Dalton was a great hero. I liked the way that he didn’t give up on Courtney. I loved that he was this super star guy and yet, he didn’t forget the little people. He didn’t forget Courtney and how much her friendship meant to him when they were kids. I was also glad to see him stand up to his Dad and that Courtney didn’t let herself jump to conclusions about Dalton’s disappearance. It showed that they came a long way in such a short amount of time and that made me happy.

Grade: 3.5 out of 5

Beneath Your Layers by Christina Lee: This was it. My favorite story of the bunch. In the other stories in this book, we didn’t see much of Chloe. She was around but not really around, if that makes any sense. Because of that, I didn’t know how I would come to care about her in this story and then I thought about smacking myself because this is a Christina Lee. Of course it’s going to be good.

And it was.

I really enjoyed getting to know Fashionista Chloe. I also really, really loved me some Blake. I loved seeing them go from not liking each other to flat out in love with each other. Seeing their interactions while they brought Chloe’s vision to life made for some great reading.  I liked that Chloe came into her own in this book.  That she finally stood up to her Mom and started living for herself. I loved the end when Blake models for Chloe and they come out as a couple. Oh man, the feels…I had all of them.

I also really loved that even though this story was so short, it didn’t feel like it was. I was so engrossed in the story that I read it in no time but I didn’t feel cheated. I thought Lee delivered a great story in such a short amount of space. Chloe and Blake were great characters and their romance as believable and adorable. I definitely recommend it.

Review: Fifty First Times Anthology

Posted July 22, 2014 by Rowena in Reviews | 0 Comments

Rowena’s review of Fifty First Times Anthology.

You always remember your first time…

Whether it’s the couple who decides not to go through with it, the two boys who finally aren’t ashamed, the newlyweds whose wedding night could very well be their last night together, the deaf pair who have no choice but to take body language to a new level–or, of course, the two young lovers fumbling and laughing, getting everything wrong. These are the memories that will never fade.

Join nineteen fantastic authors as they pull back the curtain and give you a peek inside that one intense moment in their characters’ lives when everything changes and nothing will ever be the same again.

Featuring stories from some of the hottest names in New Adult, Young Adult, and Romance including New York Times Bestselling authors J.Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout, Molly McAdams, Sophie Jordan, and Carrie Ryan.

NOTE: These stories are works of fiction. If you want to know about our first times, you’ll have to buy us a pet monkey first.

When I saw that J. Lynn had a story in this book, I was all about reading it.  I’m a fan of her Wait for You series and the story included in here was Britt and Ollie’s story of their first time.  I’m really hoping that this wasn’t it for them, that they were only a nice fling but after reading that the next book, Stay with Me, is not Britt’s book but Calla’s book, I’m glad.  Anyway, that is why I wanted to read this book but I read all of the stories in this book and there were some good ones and some that just didn’t do anything for me.

There were a lot of short stories in this book and I can’t think which book was my favorite.  I’m going to go through each story and jot down a few of my thoughts for each of them.

The Corner of First & Second by Gennifer Albin.

I liked this one.  It was cute story about two best friends who fell out of touch after a disastrous prom night who meet up after almost a year and reconnect.  I liked both Wes and Jac and thought their first time together was sweet.  This is probably one of my favorite reads in the entire anthology.

Daylight by Julie Cross

I’ve never read anything by Julie Cross but I’ve heard good things about her.  I wasn’t really feeling her addition to this anthology.  This short story is about a newlywed couple named Jack and Audrey. Audrey is the daughter of a preacher man and Jack is the mysterious tenant of the small apartment at the Church that her father preaches at.  They come into contact there and fall in love but I thought their story was too short to really get a feel for it so I didn’t really connect with either of the leads.  Oh, well.  I’m still curious about her other books.

A Little Too Scarred by Lisa Desrochers

This story is about a girl who has returned from Afghanistan, disfigured from a bomb that went off near her and killed her friend.  Before she was injured, she started growing closer to a guy that she went to high school with, named Rick.  Rick is two years older than her and used to date her sister’s friend. She was excited to come back home and meet him but now that she’s scarred up, she’s embarrassed and is pulling away from Rick but Rick isn’t having it.  He’s got no idea why she’s pulling away from him but he doesn’t give up on her and his persistence won me over.  My heart went out to Rene in this story because of what she went through but there were times when I wish she had more faith in Rick.  In the end, I liked it.

Once Bitten by Cole Gibsen

This is a story of a couple who fell out of contact with each other with no word.  The girl was left behind and the guy is back and wants to make things right.  I wasn’t too forgiving of Tanner.  I didn’t think there were enough pages to convince me that he was truly sorry for leaving without a word and I thought that Avery fell into his arms too soon, which is what we get for this being a short story but it still didn’t win me over.

Crash by Sophie Jordan

Hunter’s story! We met Hunter in Foreplay, he’s the guy that Pepper had a huge crush on.  But he’s not the guy that she ends up with.  In this short story, we meet Brooke.  The stripper that Hunter meets on a night out with the boys.  I won’t lie, the entire time that I was reading this book, I was singing, “I’m in love with a stripper” by T-Pain and it did make me laugh but really? This story was cute.  I adored Hunter and I liked Brooke.  They were cute together.

Under the Seryn Moon by Melissa Landers

This is Lyra and Kai’s story.  Their countries are at war with each other and to regain peace in the land, their fathers marry their kids to each other to keep it all in the family.  This short story follows Lyra and Kai after their married.  Lyra is scared and feels all alone and Kai is a mysterious stranger to her.  This story was cute and the only historical in the bunch of stories.  I liked both Kai and Lyra and even though I wished for more page time for these two, the pages we were given were good ones.  I liked this one.

How to be a Heartbreaker by Lauren Layne

Story of Annie and the guy that you don’t think she’s going to end up with at first.  Oh man, this is another story that I really liked.  With each passing chapter, I was thirsty for more and I was surprised at how quickly I switched camps from one guy to the next one.  The guy she ended up with was such a good fit for her that I was grinning like a crazy lady after I finished this one.  So cute!

Two in the Morning by Roni Loren

This is my first gay romance short story.  Besides Jules and Robin’s story from Suz Brockmann’s Troubleshooters series and while I loved their story, gay romances haven’t been anything that I read on the regular.  This story was cute and sweet.  Two best friends.  One gay, and one not…or so we’re led to believe until we find out, he’s not so straight.  When these two finally get together in the end, I smiled because I couldn’t help but think, “FINALLY”  Bates was a good guy and I was thrilled for him that Malcolm was not only gay but returned his feelings. Big happy face!

Believe in Me by J Lynn

Britt and Ollie’s story.  The story of their first time.  Ooh, the feels!  I’ve been wanting Britt and Ollie to end up together since I read Cam and Avery got together in Wait for Me.  If you read Be with Me, then you’ll remember when Britt and Ollie meet up at a party that Tess and Jase are at.  It’s before Jase and Tess get together so at the party, Tess gets pretty drunk and catches Jase with that other girl, Stephanie. Well, this story shows us what’s going on with Britt and Ollie.  And just like I knew I would, I loved it. So freaking cute.  My only complaint is that they don’t get a full novel…or do they? I hope so.

Sharing Firsts by Molly McAdams

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book.  I went into it with very low expectations because I hated the other book that I read by McAdams.  I was not a fan of that book, at all.  But this story was heaps better than Taking Chances…but saying that, I don’t think McAdams is for me.  This book was just okay, I didn’t read the other book featuring Kinlee and Jace so I didn’t understand what was going on but I thought their fight was silly and the way that Jace is portrayed as completely pissed off one minute and then does that quick switcheroo to completely in love again didn’t feel believable.

Strike Out by Myra McIntyre

This was another story that was just okay for me.  I didn’t connect with Liza at all, I wasn’t a fan of the way that she lumped all baseball players together and held “being a baseball player” against Ben for no reason other than past experiences with players that are not Ben.  Ben’s been nothing but a gentleman to her and she treats him like shit.  So when she finally decides to give him a chance, I rolled my eyes because she didn’t grovel nearly enough in apology to suit me.  I thought Ben was too good for Liza and when it ended, I still thought that.

This is My Sign by Hannah Moskowitz

I didn’t understand this story, or poem at all.  It was about two deaf kids who lost their virginity to each other before one of the deaf kids goes away forever.  And that’s it.  Meh.

Going for Broke by Lyla Payne

I think this was my absolute favorite story of the bunch.  I thought what Tressa did was completely adorable and brave.  You could tell that she had grown up from the last time that she saw Noel and I thought it was completely cool that she wanted one last chance to come clean about her true feelings for him, without an agenda of any kind.  She loved him and was still in love with him and she just wanted him to know before he got married.  My heart broke, my heart soared and then sighed all while reading this book.  So cute!

For the Sake of Science by Mark Perini

This was another story that I wasn’t a fan of.  I couldn’t connect with the main character, Luke mostly because I didn’t understand what was going on.  The character development didn’t do a thing to make me connect or even care what was happening with Luke and at the end, I was left thinking, “Alright, next.”  So yeah, this one didn’t work for me.

Love in an Elevator by Carrie Ryan

This is a love story about two strangers who get stuck in an elevator for hours and …fall in love.  Yeah, it was so implausible that it was hard for me to get into the story.  They met in an elevator and she’s completely soaked from being sent for food in the rain, with a broken umbrella.  So in the elevator, she’s soaking wet and the hot stranger sharing the elevator with her offers her his button down, she accepts, takes off ALL of her clothes and sits in the elevator with a complete stranger in nothing but his shirt.  No bra, no skirt, no PANTIES and she finds NOTHING wrong with it.

Yeah, not buying it.  So yep, this wasn’t for me.

Bunga, Bunga by Andrew Shaffer

Another gay hook up story? I’m not sure they were in love by the end of their story but they did end up enjoying each other’s company and it was cool.  Not much to the story but I was happy for the main character since he finally got to nail the guy that he’s always wanted to.  Go him! I feel bad because I forgot his name.

With the Lights On by Alessandra Thomas

This is a story about a girl Anna, who has body issues and her relationship with her boyfriend, Tal.  Tal loves her but because of some stuff that went down in her past, she doesn’t really believe that he loves her.  Well, she does but she doesn’t understand why. She’s not a skinny bitch, she’s got curves and she’s unsure of those curves.  Over the course of this short story, we see Anna come to be okay with her body.  This was cute but too short and I didn’t think that the characters developed completely to make me fall in love with them.  Still, it was okay.

Field Emotions by Melissa West

Oh, this was another cute story.  It features Blake and Summer, who have been really good friends since high school.  Blake is the big football star at their college and Summer is a nerd who is not a fan of watching Blake get hurt on the field.  Summer thinks that Blake is a big player but he’s anything but.  Oh man, I love the whole best friend to lovers bit and I thought West did a great job with these two.  They were adorable and when they finally did the deed, I grinned like a maniac.  So freaking cute!

Grind by Tracy Wolff

This was a short story about two lovers who have been a part for the last three years and are now reunited.  Gage and Dyani.  Their story was short and sweet and even though I wished for more, I still thought this was a cute one.

Overall, there was a shit load of stories but I wasn’t mad that I read them all.  I enjoyed some and I didn’t enjoy others but overall, it was a good mix of stories and I’m glad that I picked this up for review.

Overall grade: 4 out of 5

Review: Taking Chances by Molly McAdams.

Posted January 2, 2013 by Rowena in Reviews | 4 Comments

 
Main Character: Harper

Love Interest: Brandon, Chase or Carter?
Series: None
Author: Facebook|Twitter|Goodreads

Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career Marine of a father’s thumb. Ready to live life her own way and experience things she’s only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father’s unit; she’s on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family and emotions. Some she wasn’t expecting yet, and others she never knew she was missing.

She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate’s brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled…they’re exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she’s happy.

Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

Due to sexual situations and language, this is Mature YA/New Adult. Recommended for ages 17+

New Adult is not so new to me since I’ve been a huge fan of Meg Cabot, who’s been writing New Adult since before it was cool but I was really looking forward to reading this book, in particular because it sounded interesting.

Taking Chances follows Harper as she journeys from her military home in North Carolina and moves across country to attend college in San Diego.  I went into this book wanting to like it and I didn’t hate it but there were times when I thought I wasn’t going to finish this one.

So Harper moves to San Diego and immediately she gets along with her dorm roommate.  Her roommate Bree has a brother who’s like in a fraternity and is throwing a party so Bree talks Harper into going.  Harper has grown up on a Marine military base so she’s been around guys her whole life but this is new waters for her because the guys here aren’t like brothers to her.  Her father is not their boss so these guys don’t have to be nice to her…but they are.  Except for Chase.  Chase is Bree’s brother and a total badass playboy.  Different girl every night and he doesn’t hide his lifestyle from anyone.

Of course at first glimpse, Harper hates Chase.  Yeah, he’s hot but he knows it and the way that he uses girls as little playthings completely turns Harper off so she’s written him off…which pisses him off.  Bree and Harper are staying at Chase’s house which I thought was completely weird, since Chase is the older brother and he’s letting his sister Bree (who’s a freshman in college) sleep at his frat house with a bunch of horny college dudes? Hmm…and what I found even more weird is that Harper slept with Chase that same night.  They didn’t have sex but they slept together in the same bed which I found odd since Harper is a virgin and Bree told everyone.  Chase, the biggest horndog of them all sleeps with Harper and nothing happens?

Hmm, again.

So after that weekend, Harper meets Brandon…one of Chase’s roommates and instantly, they like each other.  Brandon is the opposite of Chase.  He’s hot and he’s nice and he wants to wait until Harper is ready to take their relationship to the next level.  Whatever Harper wants, Brandon is all for.  So they get together, they become a couple…even though Harper still has these effed up feelings for Chase.

I get that she can’t explain her feelings for Chase and I get that she was broken up about those feelings because of things with Brandon but this story just kept getting more and more bizarre with each passing page.

So Brandon and Harper are together but Chase has decided that he wants to be with Harper too.  Chase is a hot head and he does and says things that kind of scare people but at heart, he’s a big softy.  Brandon knows about Chase’s feelings for Harper and he isn’t a fan so they fight…time after time after time, they fight over Harper.  It doesn’t matter that Harper is with Brandon, Chase wants her and a part of Harper wants him too.

The thing that I couldn’t understand was why all of these people seemed to fall in love with Harper and want to protect her from the world.  I couldn’t see what was so great about her that so many guys wanted to be with her.  Wanted to fight for her hand.  There wasn’t anything about her that stood out (except that she was a virgin but even that didn’t stand out since I know a lot of Mormon girls who don’t put out) that would explain why she was in hot demand.  Because on top of Brandon and Chase, there was Carter too.  Carter, the boy from back home who was stationed under Harper’s father’s command.  Carter, who moved across country to be with her.  She reminded me of Bella Swan.  Nothing really spectacular and yet everyone wanted to be with her.

She pissed me off a lot throughout this book because she was so hot damn selfish and just over the top “good”.  She was such a snot to Chase that I kept disliking her more and more as the story progressed.  She loves both of these guys but she doesn’t want to hurt Brandon because he’s been nothing but nice to her and he loves her but she was always okay with hurting Chase and wondering why he was so hot and cold with her.  It was killing him to be around her and the way that she just didn’t see it made me want to punch her in the throat.  Oh, poor me…Chase is being mean to me at school but I have no idea why.  I’ll just start going to his family days and hope that he’ll be nice to me there, even though I’m always going to choose Brandon, I’m going to continue to usurp Chase’s family days with HIS family and then when he stops coming to HIS family days, I’m going to wonder why he hates me so much that he doesn’t ever want to see me.

Ugh.

My favorite character in the whole story was probably Chase.  I liked him the most because he was the most honest about everything.  About his feelings for Harper.  About his dislike for Brandon.  About his weaknesses and then we get to the middle of the story and I thought I was truly and completely done with the story.  I couldn’t believe what happened, how it happened and then the truth about what really happened.  After that happened, I truly and completely hated Harper.  I didn’t think she deserved a happy ending but because she’s the main character, of course she got one.

I didn’t even like Brandon even though I’m supposed to like him because he was such a pushover.  For someone who’s such a tough guy, I hated that he kept coming back to Harper.  After everything she put him through, after all of the fights he got into because of her and then the whole she wasn’t ready to have sex with him and then what she did, I couldn’t believe he went back to her.  After all of the crap that he went through because of her, he went back.

By the end of the book, I was reading it so that I could close the book and put these characters out of my head.  I had to finish it so that I could completely move on from the book because I really just couldn’t like any of them….and at the end, I was still pissed off about  Chase.  So did I like this one? It had its moments but for the most part, nope.

…and that’s your scoop!
