Blog Tour: #Review Bad For You by J.Daniels

Today I have a review of Bad For You by J.Daniels a contemporary adult romance. Check out my review below and thanks to Ink Singer PR for having me on the blog tour.

A Dirty Deeds Novel 
BY J.Daniels

"If you're a fan of Kristen Ashley, then you will love this book." -Aestas Book Blog on Four Letter Word

He didn't want to be bad. He just didn't have a choice...

Shayla Perkins isn't the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean "Stitch" Molina. So when he gives her the world's biggest rejection, that's it--she's done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn't mean he's interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he's paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected--especially from a man like Sean. He's tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give each other what they want most...is to let each other go?

"The perfect mix of funny, hot and heartwarming. I enjoyed it immensely!" --Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author, on Four Letter Word

E-Arc received for an honest review

Bad For You is the third book in the Dirty Deeds series by author J.Daniels. Its an adult contemporary that can we read as a standalone but you will definitely want to go back and read the other books to learn more about characters that appear in Bad For You.

Bad For You is a duel POV story between Shayla and Sean, two characters that I really liked. Bad For You had a slow start for me but once I got about 10-15% in I was hooked. Shayla our leading lady is a really quirky, upbeat, impulsive and a even chaotic character. She protects those she loves whether that is family or who she makes family. Once you got her she doesn't let go. At times being inside her mind was a rollercoaster. She cares so much for people, she can act first think later which can end up funny or goes terribly wrong.

Sean is a complicated guy , there is so much more to him than is on the surface. I really liked his story and was intrigued to get below his barriers and it was really helpful reading from his perspective. 

The story was one of forgiveness, sacrifice, redemption all wrapped up in family and love. Overall I enjoyed my time with Shayla and Sean and look forward to reading more books by J.Daniels. 3.5/3.75 Stars

XO, Zach by Kendall Ryan spotlight

 Check out all about XO,Zach below!

The first time we met was at a party.

Your ex arrived to show off the person he'd left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.

I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty--and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.

The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.

The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.

I know I'm crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that's the only reaction I can get out of you, I'll gladly take it.

You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.

I think I'm falling for you, and I know it's wrong. I know that I'm only supposed to be your adviser and nothing more, but here's the thing. I think you're falling for me too.

xo, Zach

Do you have blogging guilt?

Blogging guilt is something I have been thinking about for a while and thought I would share my thoughts to see if any fellow bloggers feel it as well. I started my blog 6 years ago in March and it was to share my love and passion for literature. At the time I was predominately reading YA and I loved sharing my thoughts and connecting with authors, bloggers and fellow book lovers. It was a hobby, it still is. I wasn't getting paid, it wasnt mandatory to post everyday, it was for fun, for my voice to be heard. But over the years I started to feel like I wanted to post less and less. And eventually instead of having a reading slump, I ended up having a blogging slump. Subsequently over the years I have had many blogging slumps but from the start I felt guilty when I didn't post. Sometimes I didn't know why I was feeling guilty other times I felt like oh no am going to lose the followers I have and then I would have to stop and remember its not for followers,likes and re tweets I started blogging, its for the love of books.

In the 6 years I have been part of this community it has changed in big ways. Publishers trust and enjoy working with bloggers, they listen to our opinions and thoughts. You can interact with some of your favourite authors on social media. Social media has changed. You now have bookstagram and different platforms like booktube. Bloggers have changed. Some have gone and new ones have emerged. Some have changed and adapted and moved on to different platforms. Change is inevitable its the way of life, the community is moving and evolving all the time and when I don't post I feel like am going to miss out on the latest book, the next fandom.

I still love my corner of the internet its a community full of support, love and sometimes drama, but I still love it. I don't want to feel guilty when I don't post I just want to continue supporting fellow book lovers and when I feel like posting hoping they do in turn. I want to share my passion for books when and how I want.
This is just some of my thoughts and I hope to share more of them in 2018 with regards to feeling guilty when blogging about certain books and genres but for now leave me your thoughts in the comments below. As a fellow blogger do you feel guilty not posting, as a reader do you actually care if a blogger doesn't post all day ever day. Let me know your thoughts!

The 2018 Book Blog Discussion Challenge is hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight!  "This challenge is to help get us discussing books and book blogging, so talk about whatever you want as long as it’s relevant to book blogging. Discussions can be book related or book blogging related (or generally blogging related—no discussions about things that are completely off-topic like travel or fashion, etc). Discussions can also be about you personally if it’s a get-to-know-you type post." 

#Review Secrets Of A Teenage Heiress by Katy Birchall

Today I have a review of Secrets Of A Teenage Heiress by Katy Birchall. I had so much fun with this book and highly recommend you check it out of you want a fun and laugh out loud book.

Book: Secret Of A Teenage Heiress
Author: Katy Birchall 
Series: Yes (1st)
Ages: 11 plus
Thank you to Egmont for a e arc review for an honest review
More info on the book here

Secrets of a teenage heiress was just so fun. I really enjoyed Katy Birchalls It Girl series and the first book in The Hotel Royale series was know different. The book is aimed at a young tweens, 11+, but are protagonist is 14 years old and it definitely reads as a younger end YA book. I as a 29 year old woman however still really enjoyed it and know my tween self would have as well.  Katy's books always make me laugh out loud and Flick was such a fun character, I was smiling and laughing throughout.

Flick lives in Hotel Royale one of Londons more prestigious hotels where the rich and famous come to stay and she is just so funny and snarky I love her. Flick gets up to some really fun things and the setting of the hotel was fabulous. Flick as a character always gets herself into so much trouble that hilarity ensues. 

The storyline keep me intrigued and it flowed nicely. Katy`s writing made me really nostalgia of some of my fave authors as a tween including Jacqueline Wilson and I would love to see this as a TV show it would just be so fun. It's depicts a modern teen in 2018 and that's something I loved to see but it also felt like she was a teen, she was your typical fun 14 year old who is navigating the life of celebrity and social media.

I love all the side characters particularly Flicks friends, and especially Grace who is just hilarious! Cal is also just such a sweetheart! As you have may have noticed fun is a word am using quite alot and it was but also it had a story of friendship, love and diversity which was amazing to see. 

I can't wait for more of this series and more of Katys writing , she just knows how to write stories for tweens/teens so well. Also as a last boast to get you to pick it up there is a frickin cute dog. 4 Stars

Blog Tour: The Wright Secret by KA Linde #Review

Today I have a review of The Wright Secret the fourth book in the Wright Series by K.A. Linde, (however it can be read as a standalone) a adult contemporary romance series. I enjoyed the previous Wright brother books and was lucky to get my hands on a e-arc of The Wright Mistake for an honest review for this blog tour hosted by InkSlinger PR.

new brother’s-best-friend stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I was just his best friend’s little sister.

But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.

There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.

So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

The Wright Secret is the fourth book in the Wright series. It can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read them in publication order.

The Wright Secret follows Morgan Wright, a headstrong, smart, tough CEO of Wright Construction. She has fought for this position but will she be able to keep it? Step into our story Patrick, Morgan's love since high school, only he doesn't know this. He has been her brother Austins best friend for years and treats Morgan like a little sister, can he ever see her as a woman worth loving. Hence we follow Morgan and Patrick in there duel POV story of love, life and not giving up on what you want.

I enjoyed The Wright Secret. I have been looking forward to Morgan's story since I started the series and it didn't disappoint. Morgan is depicted as a strong woman, shes career focused and just a badass protagonist and I loved to see this in a contemporary romance, she wasn't all damsel in distress which was refreshing. However she definitely showed her vulnerable human side which I loved to see. Being inside Patrick's head in our other POV really balanced the story of the relationship between both characters and kept the story moving at a nice pace.

KA Linde has developed a perfect combination that runs throughout her stories. Real life characters, twists and turns and relationships that aren't all love and roses but have real issues all wrapped up in family.

I cant wait for the final two books in this series seeing our last Wright sibling, Sutton. This is an adult contemporary romance series I recommend you check out! 3.5 Stars.

Author Bio

K.A. Linde is the USA Today bestselling author of more than fifteen novels including the Avoiding series and the Record series. She has a Masters degree in political science from the University of Georgia, was the head campaign worker for the 2012 presidential campaign at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and served as the head coach of the Duke University dance team. She loves reading fantasy novels, geeking out over Star Wars, binge-watching Supernatural, and dancing in her spare time.

She currently lives in Lubbock, Texas, with her husband and two super adorable puppies.

This week's question:  What upcoming titles are looking forward to reading in 2018? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

At the end of December I did a list of ten 2018 releases that I was excited for which you can check out here , I also did a January 2018 release list as well you can check out here. However the four above are ones I haven't featured yet. Well, I am lying because I of course mentioned With This Man before as it's my top release so far of 2018 so far, in theory it needs to be mentioned again! 

Check out a little about my four picks below:

With This Man (This Man #4) by Jodi Ellen Malpas- Releases March 2018- Adult Contemporary Romance - I love Jodi's books having read all of them to date. The This Man series is my favourite of hers and I can't wait for more Jesse. This Man (This Man #1) Review

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven- Releases March 2018- YA Contemporary - Not only does this have a stunning cover, The Exact Opposite Of Okay is a UK YA debut. From the synopsis I am getting a strong feminist theme and it also deals with the topic of slut shaming. This has some great reviews already on Goodreads and it's one I am looking forward to reading in 2018.

Beautiful Broken Hearts by Kami Garcia- Releases February 2018- YA Contemporary Romance - Again with the beautiful cover, 2018 spewing out those beautiful covers. Beautiful Broken Hearts sounds like a great contemporary romance.

Don't Forget Me by Victoria Stevens- Releases February 2018- YA Contemporary - Another debut that has being getting high praise on Goodreads, a coming of age book dealing with family, falling in love and "finding home in unexpected places".

Top Ten Books On My TBR for 2018

In my 2018 Bookish Resolutions which you can check out here I talked about wanting to read 10 books of my physical TBR pile, this post talks about the 10 books I have picked of my TBR that I want to read in 2018. As I said in my previous post, 10 is a small number, but as I am a person who doesn't usually stick to goals and also a person who reads more on her kindle than physical books 10 is a good enough number. So without further ado here is 10 books I want to read this year! 


ACOTAR is the only Sarah J Mass series I am interested in so far and it is one I have been wanting to read for so, so long. I know it has mixed feelings and even though it's a genre I tend to not read I am still really intrigued to read it. Hopefully 2018 is the year, come on I own ACOTAR and a signed copy of ACOMAF so what am I waiting for!


In 2016 Emery's Lords book When We Collided was my favourite YA read of 2016 and I was so excited to get a proof of The Names They Gave Us, but I then found out it dealt with the topic of cancer, this is a topic I struggle to read, but I really want to give it a try as I really love Emery's writing.


Why I haven't read this, I don't know but it is one I really want to read. It is a highly acclaimed YA historical book and it is one I think I will really enjoy. 


I got this book as part of a Secret Santa present and I am really excited to read it. I have heard nothing but good things about it. Even though it's a newer book on my TBR it is one I want to read very soon. 


This is a recent purchase but one I am really looking forward to reading. I have tried to read another Sarah Dessen book before and didn't finish it, but I have high hopes for this one.


This one is at the top of my TBR. The movie trailer looks so, so good and I have wanted to read this book for so, so long! I NEED to read this!


This is one I picked up a few years back and just haven't got around to reading it even though its a book I really want to read. I can't wait to get to The Historian.


I just want to read a Jandy Nelson book in 2018. I am still not sure whether I will pick up I'll Give You The Sun or The Sky Is Everywhere. I just know I want to read a Jandy Nelson book.


Another Emery Lord book, I just want to read all her books and don't you just love this edition of The Start Of Me And You!

This is trilogy I have wanted to read for a long time so hopefully 2018 is the year!

Which of my top ten should I push to the top of my TBR? What is some books on your TBR you want to read in 2018?
