Goodreads Summary: Mia Monroe is running. Running from a person she doesn’t ever want to find her. Running from a past she doesn’t ever want anyone to know. Desperate to find a future, that yesterday, she could only dream of having.

Jordan Matthews likes easy. Easy women. Easy life.

Then he meets Mia.

She’s damaged, troubled and has more baggage than any person can carry. But the more Jordan gets to know Mia-for the first time in his life-he finds himself wanting to try hard for something … for someone … for her.

And then life isn’t so easy anymore.

Jordan is everything Mia shouldn’t want. A whole bunch of dirty hotness, tattooed, cocky bad boy, who made his money at poker tables and picked his women up in bars. Yet, Mia finds herself falling for him. Then the past Mia was running from, quickly starts to catch up with her. Because that’s the problem with running … you have to stop sometime.

And when you stop, you get caught.

My Review: When you are told that your father didn’t make it and you are happy about that, you know that there is more to the story. Mia was sure that the death of her abusive father meant freedom and happiness. Only she was wrong. She was lead down a similar path with her first ever boyfriend. She had to get away. She left her life in Boston, she left her clothes and her home. She embarks on a journey to find her mother that had left her all alone with her crazy father who had told her that her mother was dead.

When she reached her destination she meets Jordan, who agrees to help her find her mother. Only after a few weeks does he find out the truth. And boy, it’s a doozy! You will want to stick around for the curveball in this one.

My Review:

Colleen Hoover is the queen. The best. One of my all time, alway favorites. The woman can do no wrong in my eyes. I wanted to read this the second I heard about it. It is different for the “norm” that is Colleen’s writing. When I saw it was on Kindle Unlimited, I grabbed it.

Sloan was stuck. She was in this relationship with Asa, who, to me was the devil. He had her by the hair and wasn’t going to let her go. Then comes Carter. And Thank God for him. At first, Sloan has the wrong idea about him. He isn’t all that means the eye, and I will leave it at that.

I can’t really put into words how great it was. I think they should bring this one to life and make it into a movie!

I actually read this back on Thanksgiving and I am just now writing about it. It has been quite a little hectic around here. My husband had to have surgery and has to go on permanent disability so we have been trying to adjust to that.

Hot Shot: A Second Chance Romance

Hot Shot: A Second Chance Romance by Joanna Blake

Genre: Romance

I got this book on Kindle Unlimited.

First, I have to say I have been and apparently am still in a reading slump. Sometimes this happens. I will have a good run were a few weeks all of the books I read are four or five stars and then all of a sudden it’s like I pick one stars. 😬

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️ 

SPOILERS BELOW

This book is about Drew and Kennedy. Drew, (the hot shot I guess?) is a fireman but has taken to drinking after Kennedy, a girl he was with for six weeks, just up and leaves. But then she comes back, with a baby that she says is his.

This whole story was so awkward to me. It seemed to flip flop. They all apparently have a bunch of brothers. Kennedy’s brother’s has bullied her into leave once they discovered she was pregnant. Like what the hell? Excuse my language, but the whole concept of that was ridiculous. 

Well anyways, she’s back and Drew wants to basically screw her out of his mind. He finally decides he wants to be a dad and then wants to get her pregnant immediately. 

Here is the thing that killed me. He wants to knock her up again, but they are never taking care of the kid they have because they are literally always having sex. I get it, it’s romance, but really that’s all the story is. Their internal conflicts about being together and then them having sex. 

Oh and if you get the version I had, from KU, this book ends at 50% and another one begins, but I am not even attempting that one. I want to scream! I need a good book to keep me sane. 😂

I apologize if this post has errors, I’m on my iPhone.
