SYNOPSIS

Not all love stories are written the same way.

Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.

Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.

Sweet.

Caring.

Charitable.

Quiet.

Fake.

Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.

Who taught her how to laugh.

To live.

To love.

Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.

Gorgeous.

Athletic.

Rugged.

Popular.

Liar.

This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.

But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.

When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.

Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

mini book reviews

{1} Boy Toy by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby 

A brand new romantic comedy from your favorite snort-laughing duo!LRM_EXPORT_815240316219250_20190729_163939292

Liam

The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was fourteen, and I’m still not over her. Problem: she still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last fifteen years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

Sadie

I’ve just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don’t have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He’s everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls.

I can’t possibly get involved with him. He’s too young for me. Too handsome. But he’s so persuasive…

As a result of me looking for books with a younger guy-older woman trope, I came across Boy Toy by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby.

Probably my favorite thing about this book is Liam and Sadie’s twin girls, Kate and Amy. I love reading about Liam doing things for them. How comfortable he is. How he easily fits their lives. Every scene with them are so /so/ heartwarming. Though, there are also times wherein they’re such a riot. Quirks and all.

05 Mini Book Reviews {The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen and All Grown Up by Vi Keeland}

mini book reviews

LRM_EXPORT_414518637632045_20190707_110134042{1} The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive when I started reading The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen. I’m not into love triangles and Wolfe Keaton’s character scared me, irritated me. He’s an asshole, yep. But as soon as the story picked up (I don’t back down just because), I noticed how I became so invested with their story.

I was rooting for Francesca. I was rooting for Wolfe. I was rooting for them to make things work between them. He’s an asshole. He’s rough. She pushes his buttons. She’s undecisive. They misunderstand each other. They lack proper communication. They make me crazy.

See, their story and characters are definitely a far cry from being perfect. They were perfect at being flawed.

Especially Senator Wolfe Keaton. Seeing how his character changed was like seeing a platonic relationship bloom into a romantic one. It was such a sight to see that the walls he built around him since he was young…little by little cracked. The ice inside of him started to thaw and with warmth slowly slipping out. It was beautiful. Totally hands down to LJ Shen for writing such a great character development. I love it.
