Forgiving Gia Review...


Synopsis

Abel Gunner is a rock-star with legendary skills both in and out of the bedroom. He swore he wouldn't fall for another woman after being schemed and manipulated by an ex-lover. He kept that vow until he met Gia Mastro. The Dom inside of him awoke the moment he set eyes upon the submissive beauty. His dark soul hungered for her submission and affection. The deep connection they share leaves him desperate for something he never expected – her love. Her pain brings him the pleasure he craves. Her smile calms the beast that rages within him. Gia loves Abel more than life itself, but Abel is disillusioned by love and wrecks Gia in the process. Her life hangs in the balance. His life depends on forgiving her. This couple must face many truths. Is love enough to overcome the damage that dwells within? Gia’s experiences with love have been nil until meeting the infamous bad-boy rocker, Abel Gunner. Swept up in a mind-bending, Dom/submissive love affair, she’s forced to make decisions that both help and hurt their relationship. They both have to face their demons before they can embrace a future together. In the end, they’re faced with two choices: Fight for their love, or die with their demons.


I can't seem to put into words how I feel about Gia and Abel's story. I loved Saving Abel and Forgiving Gia was the same. There was so much going on in this book however and the back and forth between characters was kind of hard to follow at times. 

Gia grew up with a horrible mother and you learn a little bit more about that in this book. Abel also grew up in a similar situation only his parents actually cared, you learn more about that as well. These two make an interesting couple and while Abel is a Dom without a doubt, Gia tries to submit. Needless to say she is a dominant in her own way, making it a constant struggle.

In Saving Abel we leave Gia on the tarmack when Abel flies off and leaves her because of Morgana. We pick up in this book learning how that affected both of them. When they are finally reunited Abel becomes even more protective and dominant than before. Gia's mouth gets her in trouble a lot and Morgana is out for vengeance. 

It once again however ended with me wanting more. Gina has created characters and a story that are beyond words and I can't wait to find out what is in store for these characters. There is so much that could happen and I can't wait to find out for myself!!!

Seaside Hearts Review...


Seaside Hearts
Seaside Summers # 2
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing October, 2014

Blurb

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

SEASIDE SUMMERS is the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series. COMING SUMMER 2014.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I loved some of the other books in the Love In Bloom Series (haven't read them all yet) but I was kind of disappointed with this one.  It had a good story line but I felt it was kind of slow.

This book follows Jenna who decides that this summer is the summer that she moves past waiting for Pete.  Pete has liked Jenna for years but due to her awkward shyness around him.  

If you liked the rest of the books then you will most likely love this book.  

3.5 out of 5 stars.

Her Perfect Game Review...


Her Perfect Game
Hot & Nerdy # 2
By: Shannyn Schroeder
Releasing October 26th, 2014
Kensington

Blurb

Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else…

Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn’t quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she’s entering a “hackfest” over spring break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who’s been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can’t fight the desire that comes rushing back.
Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they’re face to face again, he doesn’t know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her that he’s offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It took a second for Charlie to realize that she was being called a cheater. She stood. “What?” She looked up at the board. She and Override were still in second place, now only by five points, but Jane and her partner were fifty points behind.
She had an unfair advantage. I wasn’t sure, but I suspected. It’s just not possible.”
Charlie glared at her. “I am not cheating. How could I?”
A nasty smirk stole across Jane’s face. “Someone fed you the answers.”
Charlie’s heart sank. She knew exactly where this was going. “No one gave me anything.”
Should we ask your boyfriend over there?” She pointed at Jonah sitting by the door.
First of all, he’s not my boyfriend. Second, he didn’t give me shit. I’ve worked through each task just like everyone else.”
Jane crossed her arms and waited. Carl looked back and forth between Jonah and Jane.
Jonah slid from the stool. “I didn’t give her anything. I didn’t create the challenge. Carl did.”
Of course, Jonah wouldn’t lie about their relationship.
Carl crossed the room to talk to Jonah. The harsh whispers carried across the room. Carl was asking about having a personal relationship with a competitor. Jonah nodded. She was screwed.
Her stomach sank. There was no coming back from this. “Fuck this.” She slammed her laptop shut and looked at Override. “Sorry if you get screwed here too. I did not cheat, but I refuse to get thrown out for doing nothing wrong.”
She slid her computer into her bag and rushed out the door.
Wait,” Jonah called.
She didn’t, but then he caught her by the arm. “What are you doing?”
Charlie yanked her arm from his grasp. “I’m not going to sit there and be accused of cheating because I slept with you.”
Carl wasn’t going to throw you out. He knows I didn’t have access to anything he created.”
Doesn’t matter. If I win, everyone in that room will question whether it was legitimate. Thanks for fucking this up for me.” She turned away, tears clawing at her throat.
Whoa. What do you mean me? I didn’t do a damn thing.”
That’s right, you didn’t. All you had to do was deny we had any kind of relationship.”
Why the hell would I do that? I know you didn’t cheat, and lying wasn’t going to change that accusation.”
Whatever.” She took a couple more steps before he moved in front of her.
What’s the big deal? It’s a stupid small-time hackfest.”
Not for me it wasn’t. I needed this win.”
Charlie, you have to know that you didn’t really have a chance against Poison.”
Tears welled and burned her eyelids. “Thanks for the vote of confidence. I guess we’ll never know now.”
She tried to push past him, but he laid a hand on her shoulder. “Why are you so upset?”
Charlie swallowed hard. “I needed this win. This was my chance. The prize is Def Con. I can’t afford to get to Vegas and pay for a hotel and shit. And I need Def Con to network and find a job.”
No, you don’t, Charlie. You’re good enough that all you have to do is send out your résumé after graduation. You won’t need to network. The jobs will be there.”
She swiped at her face, hating every tear that fell. “No, they won’t because there won’t be a graduation. I dropped out.”
He looked stunned, his mouth hanging open, and Charlie skirted around him. She couldn’t look at his face knowing in a moment it would be filled with disappointment. She raced to her room, packed her stuff, and checked out to go back to her regular life.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This book follows Charlie as she is struggling to figure out her path.  She attends a hacking competition at a convention and runs into her ex, Jonah.  What she doesn't know is that Jonah has kept tabs on her through a game character when he left unexpectedly three years ago.

I enjoyed the book.  It started out kind of slow but picked up the pace a short ways in.  It was confusing for me to keep some of the information straight but all in all it was well written and intriguing characters.  I would recommend this book to others.

4 out of 5 stars
