BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Beautiful Bitch (Beautiful Bastard #1.5) by Christina Lauren

beautiful-bitch

SYNOPSIS

Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship.

Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

REVIEW

ASHLEY’S BOOK REVIEW: 5 BASTARD STARS

THEY’RE BACK!!! EEK! MORE CHLOE AND BENNETT! ❤

In this novella, we get an “extended” epilogue is how I like to look at it! Which I am perfectly fine with because I LOVE Bennett and Chloe!

Beautiful Bitch is about the “who are we as a couple?” Their relationship has grown since their reunion at the end of Beautiful Bastard and they have become “inseparable” in a sense.

“I can function without you. But I don’t like being away from you. It feels like you take my home with you when you go.”-Chloe.

Beautiful So of course, we get the title Beautiful Bitch from Chloe obviously…we get to see how she is establishing herself in her career. Bitch is centered on Chloe’s new blooming career and Bennett’s ever busy career. Written in dual POVs, Bennett and Chloe explain the frustrations of having a successful professional career while also creating a solid foundation for a personal relationship…they are learning real fast that having both is difficult!

“Chloe, you’ve owned me since the first second I saw you.” *AWE SWOON*

Bennett and Chloe may be in love, but their ever present foreplay in the form of bantering was definitely still there simmering under the surface! Chloe still gave as much attitude and sass as she got and put Bennett in his place. Bennett could easily be his “panty ripping bastard” self at the drop of a hat if provoked by Chloe;) Their sexual tension was not diminished!

I would give this novella 5 Beautiful Stars!

ANGY’S AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS

Beautiful Bitch is MORE OF BENNETT AND CHLOE for me, which is the best. This books is the kind of books i always want when I love a book. It is their life after the HEA. Knowing how those two stubborn, perfectionist, driven and crazy in love with each other of Chloe and Bennett were building their relationship was the best. I love to know they still have the sex drive toward each other *smirk*, not to mention their urge to kill each other HaHaHa, I love the war/love between them. .

LIstening to the audiobook was awesome. I loved that it has a dual narration. Grace Grant for Chloe’s POV, which was amazing, and Kirby Heybourne for Bennett’s POV. Listening to a male voice for Bennett was so cool, even though I had to get used to Kirby’s tone of voice.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY: After We Fell (After #3) by Anna Todd

 Afterwefell

SYNOPSIS

Book Three of the After series—now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd’s After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the Internet’s most talked-about book for yourself!

Tessa and Hardin’s love was complicated before. Now it’s more confusing than ever. AFTER WE FELL…Life will never be the same. #HESSA

Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim.

Tessa’s life begins to come unglued. Nothing is what she thought it was. Not her friends. Not her family. The one person she should be able to rely on, Hardin, is furious when he discovers the massive secret she’s been keeping. And rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage.

Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss—but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together. But if Tessa follows her heart now, will it be…the end?

BOOK REVIEW: The Unimaginable by Dina Silver

Silver-Unimaginable_FINAL_cover

SYNOPSIS

From the author of One Pink Line comes a story about letting go of the past and finding bravery in the depths of fear. Set on the sun-soaked beaches of Thailand and the rough waters of the Indian Ocean, The Unimaginable paints a vivid portrait of a young woman on a journey to find herself—and her harrowing fight for survival.

After twenty-eight years of playing by the rules, Jessica Gregory moves from her small Indiana town to Phuket, Thailand. But her newfound routine is upended with the arrival of Grant Flynn, a captivating, elusive man who is sailing around the world while trying to move on from a past tragedy. Jessica volunteers to help crew Grant’s boat, Imagine, on a passage across the Indian Ocean and finds herself falling in love with him as the voyage gets underway. But when disaster strikes, Jessica must summon her courage as the crew is confronted by unspeakable terrors––and, aboard a boat named for such promise, comes the unimaginable.

REVIEW

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS

A beautiful, heartbreaking and life changing story. It is the perfect description for this amazing book. This is a story about dreams, love and what matters the most in life. For Jessica and Grant, it was catching their dreams, thought over different motivations. She out of love for herself and he out of love for his dead wife. And the most beautiful was that those motivations brought them together.

This book is really different from every other I’ve ever read. I totally loved it. I had me on edge half of the book. I cried like a baby, my heart was hurting so badly when the unimaginable happened. Jessica and Grant were supportive for each other through this difficult situation and I loved to read how their relationship grew stronger. I was so happy with the ending of the book. It was perfect.

About the audiobook: I’ve listened to Amy McFadden’s other performances before, Aftershock and Afterburn by Sylvia Day and I loved her voice in that audiobook and I love her voice in The Unimaginable. These books are very different from each other and she made the narration flawless.

RELEASE DAY LAUNCH: Heartlines (Thirty Seconds To Die Series, Book 3) by S.G. Holster

Heartlines RDL banner

front only

SYNOPSIS

Heartlines is not a standalone book. It is only meant to be read after first reading Thirty Seconds To Die and Terrible Lies.

************

Sometimes in battle surrender is the strongest move of all.

Brett Owen, the son of a Sentori leader, promised himself he’d never do the work of his brotherhood – killing reborn souls. He’d been naïve to make such a vow. He’d been naïve about a lot of things – such as the bond of family and love.

Taunted by a Sentori hunter, Brett does whatever he can to survive, even if it means embracing his dark Sentori side and earning the unwanted attention of the Sentori leaders. His life had never looked so frantic. And all the while, his true family is infecting his heart and mind.

When his heart is tied to an unexpected soul, he finds himself fighting for a future he desperately wants to live to see. It becomes clear that whatever freedoms Brett is hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Fragile lives that had been carefully woven together will be ripped apart swiftly and easily.

Faith is betrayed.

Remorse and innocence intertwine.

Fate and chance collide to mend the tattered strands of Brett’s heart in the shocking conclusion to the Thirty Seconds To Die Series.
