The Dysfunctional Test by Kelly Moran

The Dysfunctional TestThe Dysfunctional Test by Kelly Moran
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"You are cordially challenged to a test of true love. "

Growing up in her large, crazy Serbian family, Camryn Covic became an expert at shutting down her emotions in order to maintain her sanity. But when she loses her apartment, her job and her boyfriend all in one day, she hits her breaking point.

Worse, if her family finds out she's single "again," her sister's upcoming wedding will be a disaster. The bride-to-be has a plan, though. A plan that involves an old friend, a pretend relationship...and the probability of ending up in a padded cell. This time for real.

Troy Lanske agreed to the crazy plan only because, when he was a lonely foster child, Camryn was his lifeline. But she isn't the idealistic girl he remembers. She's become so jaded that she doesn't even believe in love anymore.

He sets out to restore her faith in happily-ever-afters, but his plan backfires when the fake relationship begins to feel all too real. Falling for the one woman he can't have could mean losing more than just his honorary family. He could lose everything.

Warning: Contains a Playgirl-material hero and a woman who thinks she couldn't be any more wrong for him. Enter one "Big Fat Overly Romantic Serbian Family." Sit back and watch the magic happen. Enjoy!

This was so not what I expected. A light hearted yet emotional and somewhat serious romance that left me with a huge smile on my face. Camryn comes from a loud and crazy family. She's always felt like the black sheep, the outcast, the ugly one. With her younger, beautiful sister's wedding coming up, the fact that she had quite possibly the worst day imaginable, what with getting dumped, evicted and 'let go' all in the span of a few hours, she's pretty low on the self esteem totem pole. When her sister comes up with the most insane plan to fake a date to the wedding in order to stave off her meddling family, she reluctantly agrees. Enter Troy. Lifelong friend and adopted son / brother, he's got some deep seated issues of his own. But he agrees to help Cam because he sees her like no one else does, and she has been there for him from the beginning. This was such a great romance about two people who have serious issues with self image, feelings of being unwanted and not good enough and wondering if they'll ever find love. I couldn't put it down. I started it this morning and just finished and I can't help but feel like this is a book that will stay with me forever. My heart broke for Camryn and how she viewed herself and how she felt her family viewed her. I even shed a few tears. I absolutely loved Troy and how even though he had his own self doubts, he knew how much Cam was worth and went to great lengths to get her to see herself how he saw her. As beautiful, funny, smart and worth it. And through all this Troy found his own happiness. With the added benefit of some pretty sweet and hot love (that means sex) scenes, a crazy ass family who had me simultaneously wanting to punch them and laugh my ass off, a 3 year old niece who absolutely stole the show she was so darn cute and funny, and a hea that left me still smiling as I write this, I'd say this book was a huge hit! I laughed, I cried, I got pissed, and I swooned. I don't think there's much else I can say to express how great this book was! Oh, and the grammar and dialogue was perfect! :D Now I must go find more books by Ms. Moran since I am now a huge fan!

REVIEW: The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead

9833184The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

TITLE – Almost Matched (book #1)
SERIES – Almost Bad Boys
AUTHOR – A.O. Peart
GENRE – New Adult Romantic Comedy novella
PUBLICATION DATE – November 8, 2013
PUBLISHER – Three Graces Publishing
COVER ARTIST – Regina Wamba

                             Would you take another shot at love? Or just settle on a friend with benefits?

                                                  Almost Matched-AOPeart-high
                                                          Their heartbreaking past will move you. 
                                                          Their passion will make you blush. 
                                                          Their antics will make you laugh out loud. 

Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general. So when Colin Hampton crosses her path, she’s cautious. Her heart (and some other body parts!) nudges her to go for it, while her head wants her to run for the hills.

Colin is one of those gorgeous guys who attract women, no matter the age or marital status. With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him—maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse.

Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did?

Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself?

Or will they settle somewhere in the middle—establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love?

Disclaimer: This contemporary romantic comedy blends humor, sensuality, and angst, with zany characters and witty dialogue. You will laugh out loud while blushing in embarrassment.

**Warning: contains sexual situations (some quite vivid!), profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and there is a lot of appletini and beer drinking. May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prudes and killjoys with no sense of humor**

THE SERIES: The Almost Bad Boys series are the stories of four feisty twenty-something women who refuse to let their past drag them down.
