Never Lie
Never Pick a Fight
Never Make a Scene

Review:


I've read I Have Never in one sitting,it's the perfect story for a lazy Sunday.

Camilla Isley did it again,she quickly became one of my favorite chick lits authors.I enjoy her writing,the effortless flow of her words,the interesting plot and the lovely characters.

I loved our heroine,Blair,she could appear as a "princess" but she is also strong enough to take her life in her hands and try to be happy even if this means to go against everything she has ever thought.

A Scottish Wedding by Hilaria Alexander


Release Date: 07.20.2017


Synopsis:

TYING THE KNOT!

Ladies, Hugh MacLeod is off the market! We caught up with the sexy hunk from Abarath and his fiancée, makeup artist Sam Farouk at an event in Edinburgh. 
The pair met last year while working together on season one. 
The Scottish actor looked handsome in a tailored dark grey suit, while the raven-haired beauty at his side turned heads in a golden lamé gown which channeled the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress of the same color. Ms. Farouk played coy when asked about the engagement, only revealing that the ring belonged to Hugh’s grandmother. With a dreamy look to her groom-to-be, Ms. Farouk confessed his proposal was “fairytale worthy." MacLeod charmingly deflected each one of our questions about season two of Abarath, saying he would get in trouble if he told us anything. When we asked if a date had been set yet, the engaged couple looked at each other for a brief second. Soon, they replied in unison in a way that turned us into mush. Ms. Farouk added that it will all depend on Hugh’s schedule and his commitment with the show. 
We wish the very best to the groom and the bride-to-be and we hope to bring you more news about their upcoming nuptials!

Review:


I've really enjoyed to go back to Scotland for this long epilogue of Sam and Hugh story.

I don't want to spoil this story for you but if you have read Lost In Scotland you don't want to miss this lovely sequel.

Hilaria Alexander is a guarantee of a good nice romantic story!!

Getting a Grip by M.E. Carter


Release Date: 07.18.2017


Synopsis:

This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be.

I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0.  Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly.  What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride.  Ok, ok, she’s not young.  Maybe.

Did I mention this is not the life I planned?

It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg, who is apparently a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty.

Sigh… Greg.

The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know.

Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control.

So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life.  And maybe my heart.


Review:


This was a funny,entertaining,real and in a way also a unique story.

When I started this book I thought it was an easy to read rom com but just after a few chapter I understood it was so much more.
Getting a Grip was a story about self-discovery,acceptance of our flaws and the courage to start again even if the future is uncertain.

I've really appreciated how the author delivered this meaningful story with a light atmosphere and a bunch of great characters.

Elena is hands down one of my favorite heroines,she is so relatable, lovely with her three little girls,a very good friend,never acting weird for her age.

I was heartbroken at the end...I need to read the sequel as soon as possible.

Hello Forever by Sarina Bowen


Release Date: 07.14.2017

Synopsis:

A SINGLE BASKETBALL GAME CHANGES EVERYTHING...


When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later, Axel is astonished to spot his first love’s face in the crowd of a college basketball game he’s watching on TV—at a school which has just offered him a job. It’s a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly, he can’t wait to get there.

Cax can’t believe his eyes when Axel appears in the same Massachusetts town where he now lives. And he’s still just as drawn to Axel as ever. But he can’t let himself go there again, because loving Axel will mean giving up everything else he holds dear.

Both men have so much to lose. But as far as their love is concerned, it's Hello Forever.



Review:


Hello Forever was an effortless read.

The author's words lured me in from the start and kept me enthralled until the end.
The synergy among all the characters made this story really good.
Sarina Bowen writes the most heartwarming male/male stories.

Axel and Cax were friends as kids but after an unfortunate event they fell out of touch until they met again years later working at the same school.While the first one is not shy of his sexuality the second one still lives dreading of being discovered. 

I was so curious to find out if this time woud have been their last chance to finally get together and be happy that I've devoured the whole book in a day.

Until the Sun Sets by Tara Wyatt


Release Date: 07.11.2017



Synopsis:

Two best friends at a destination wedding in Mexico are forced into a fake relationship; but when one kiss turns into a week-long fling, could this change everything?

Dean Grayson doesn't do commitment. So when his cousin asks Dean to bring a date to his wedding in Mexico, he asks his best friend, Carly Jensen, to come with him. After a recent break up, Carly’s feeling like she’ll never find love, so a week in Mexico with her best friend-slash-boss is the perfect way to take her mind off things.

Review:


Until The Sun Sets is the third novella in The Graysons series, it was a new quick and enjoyable read for me.

Carlie is Dean's employee, they worked together for two years and became friends at the same time, so when Dean has to fly to Mexico for his cousin's wedding and needs a partner to prove he isn't a playboy the best solution is to ask her to go with him.

I loved to read Carlie and Dean journey and the developping of their relationship,even if this was a short novella I closed this book feeling pleased.
