    "I was working 8am to 7pm shifts for the past few years and I wanted to make sure I spend time in the evening with my boyfriend who waits for me to come home all day. I was looking for something exciting and special to share with my boyfriend to show my appreciation for all of his commitment and loving.

My boyfriend is an aspiring college student, so he is learning a lot of writing techniques by reading this extraordinary series about a about a esteemed professor traumatized by his past but develops a relationship with his innocent student, which forces him to confront his past.

    "This is a romance book. It literally has a man showing his abs on the cover, so basically it's a sex book. I guess if you want to read about adults panting after each other this is a good book. If you want a story, not so much."

    "This is the reverse version of the novel Beautiful Disaster, and tell's the story from Travis' point of view (rather than Abby's.) It doesn't give an exact play by play of the first novel, though, and skips over Travis and Abby's first meeting! It also glazes over many of the heartwarming moments from the first book. Still a worthy read, but could also be a disappointment for some. It needs to be read second and by fans."

The book really draws you into the lives of the characters and you feel their ups and their downs as if they were your own. Really heartfelt writing makes this book come alive page after page. Great book to cozy up on the couch and read of a evening."

Reading how the relationship between Alex and Lucas blossomed from their almost sibling-like friendship to a romance couple, with all the social and emotional changes along the way, kept me enthralled and interested in how this couple was going to stay together. I will say that it felt like there were some scenes that seemed a bit extraneous in this book, but some of those did do a job painting a picture into Lucas' life."

My daughter was 18 and her death was caused by an accidental overdose of legal prescription medications. The thought of wrapping my car around a tree occurred more than once--good thing there aren't many treas that size in our area. I had other children and a husband that needed me, and I couldn't put them through more heartache. "

    "When Carter and Evie meet at a Halloween party, they have the kind of chemistry that makes you move mountains to be with each other. Unfortunately for these two, fate steps in and throws a wrench in their plans. Finding out they are basically competing for the job they love, this turns them from a possibility into enemies before they know what hits them. Christina Lauren's writing is on point, the story flows, the characters come alive, and you can cut the tension with a knife. Enemies-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes, and these writers do it amazing justice. Dating You/Hating You has a bit of a different feel than some of their other books, it's more drawn out, more storyline and less sexy action. Don't let that deter you though, there is still plenty of steam, it's just more a slow-burn in my eyes. Absolutely loved Carter and Evie's story, I hope we get to see them again sometime!"

    "I would only rate this book as a "3" relative to "best new adult contemporary books". This is a new series written by two authors who use the pen name "Erin Watt". The book is sort of a crazy journey in the life of Ella as she progresses from a life of poverty to a life of affluence with various stops in between including strip joints and truck stops. I found the overall story to be very improbable which made it more difficult for me to fully enjoy the narrative. On the positive side though, I found that the author writes with a quick flow that enables this book to be a quick read. This is probably a book that you might take to the beach but probably not the book if you're looking for something more serious and emotional."

    "I did not bother finishing this book. Cassie and Dar are just not compelling enough to read about. Davis did nothing to make me feel for the two main characters. Their romance was just so unbelievable and boring at the same time. I really wanted to like this book but it is just not worth my time. "

    "Real-life, confusing emotions are given description. If you are in a situation anything like the one described this book offers valuable insights but is harsh. Not one I would recommend. This is not a best new adult contemporary by any stretch."

    "This is a teen novel at best. Ok, not that good. The heroine spends a large part of the book hiding from the guy she likes and putting up with bad treatment from all around her, yet she is portrayed as a strong woman? No she isn't. The hero puts up with this and always so understanding about it but really it just gets to be annoying."

The author has a history as a travel writer and does a fantastic job of detailing sights and vistas. The romance between the two main characters is not my favorite from this author but is still worth a read. "

I would consider this one of the best new complementary books that I've read in a long time. It's about the hot and steamy relationship between Garrett and Nathalie when they meet by chance working in the same medical practice. Now, I can't wait until a new book comes out! "

    "The Pale King is the last [unfinished] work by David Foster Wallace. Typically, I'm a big fan of his, but I really couldn't get into this one; his posthumous ghostwriter really screwed things up. This is heavy on the verbosity and light on substance. The author rambles and somehow manages to make the dull topic of IRS agents even more dull. It's not the worst book I've ever read, but it certainly wasn't the best either."

    "Midnight Blue is part of a chronicle series of contemporary romance love story between two people. Classic 'I only needed him to do something for me but then I fell in love' books, but it does deliver its own little spin. It's not quite my kind of book, but it's certainly interesting for those who like a good romance novel. Plus it has a hot guy on the front with pecs, abs, and barely covered genitals. I bet that got your attention."

I love Janet Evanovich for example and even Carll Hiaasen, but Reid just doesn’t have the same skills as those authors. She tries to tell a socially conscious story but maybe that’s the problem. It’s real difficult to do both. Points for trying though."
