Goodreads Summary:

Book Trailer

The rules are simple: unattached companionship, toe-curling sex and a clean break whenever it ends. And it will end. Darby’s groundbreaking medical research will launch her into career stardom. Michael’s status as an architectural wunderkind will send him to a far-flung locale. Either one can say the single word that will break it off: Snapdragon.
But soul-deep sex is just the beginning. Michael becomes a fierce ally against her misogynist boss, a light to chase away the shadow of her notorious father, and the antidote to her crushing loneliness. Choosing love over ambition is the one thing she said she’d never do. And Darby must fight hard not to fall in love.
GET READY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH SNAPDRAGON

Deeply meaningful, desperately sexual, and inevitably bittersweet, Snapdragon deals with the quandary of choosing love over career, the weight of adulthood and the complexity of modern work-life. It rewrites the book on what a 21st century relationship should look like and keeps the reader wondering how it will end.

A business executive by day, a writer of smart contemporary fiction by night, a lover of words and an admirer of the artists who arrange them cleverly. These days, most of what I read is on audiobook (because, whose hands are free long enough to turn pages?) I’m the mother of two, an oenophile, a cinephile, and above all else, a hopeless fic fiend. “Snapdragon” is my debut original novel, though I spent many years as a well-liked fan fiction author. In the fanfic world, my stories have been read more than 1.4 million times, were favorited more than 5,900 times and received more than 4,200 reviews. Though I haven’t written fan fiction since 2012, I still receive hundreds of reads a day.

REVIEW:
Stars: 5 Stars
I’ve recently been hitting Romance Books pretty hard. Ill admit a few of them have been a little off, but Snapdragon has not been one of those books.

Snapdragon pulled me in instantly with the prospect of the deal. Throughout the whole book I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen in their arrangement, waiting for Snapdragon to be spoken and have everything Untangle.

I finished Snapdragon quick since I couldn’t seem to find a valid reason to put it down and start anything else.  Pick up your Copy today and fall into the sheets with Darby & Michael.

Except from the book:

THE DEAL

“I wasn’t kidding about the orgasms. They need to be toe-curling and there’d need to be at least four, every time we…”
“What if I promised you five? Would you see me if I promised you five?” He asked again only after he’d gently devoured her mouth once more.
“Lofty goal, Don’t you think?” she murmured against his chin, not waiting for an answer before capturing his lips once again.
“I’m an overachiever,” he said darkly as he pulled back.
“Six?” He nipped at her neck.
She might have laughed at his bravado if kissing him hadn’t felt so good. The idea was ludicrous—six orgasms? Even the four she’d mentioned had been an exaggeration. Still, a stab of anticipatory pleasure tingled up her spine as she realized this talented man might just deliver.
“This ends at sunrise,” she managed, still out of breath as she pulled away long enough to say the words.
“I thought you didn’t do one-night stands.”
“It’s not a one-night stand. It’s an interview.”

Goodreads Summary:

Magnum

From the time I laid eyes on Brenda, over a year ago, I wanted to taste every inch of her. The need ran so deep, I pushed her away. That’s my problem. I push everyone away; anyone who dares to get too close. The bonds of my past prevent me from moving forward, but my need for her compels me to break them. Now she’s in danger, and I’ll die before I let anything happen to her. It’s a race against time, between my past and saving her. Will time run out on both of us, or will we forever be bonded?

Brenda

When I first met Magnum, I thought sex was all I wanted. Or at least that’s what I told myself. I haven’t allowed a man into my heart in over ten years, but one moment with him tore down walls that I meticulously built. I’m still forever bonded to a moment in time, ten years ago; a moment that threatens to come back on the ten-year anniversary of that fateful day. Magnum has sworn to protect me, but I’m not sure even he can save me from this nightmare. I’ve always been told that time breaks old bonds but will I be able to break my own and move forward into the unknown with Magnum? Or will our pasts break the bonds that hold us together?

Author: Desiree Williams
Buy your copy: Amazon
Goodreads Rating: 4.5 Stars
Goodreads Summary:

Dorothy got sucked into a tornado.

Alice fell down a hole.

Wendy flew to Neverland.

Kamryn? She tripped down the stairs.

Now, Kamryn Kensington finds herself in a strange new world. Within minutes of her arrival, she dodges an archer’s arrow and avoids getting sliced up by a cosplay reject holding a dagger to her throat. And that’s before the storyteller’s breath brings stories to life.

Home is the mission—to return to her family and pursue her life’s dream of art and travel. Yet the longer she’s in the Land of Ur, the harder it is not to feel for the people she meets. Even her artistic side can’t help but breathe in the beautiful wonder and magic of this new world. So when the Oracle hands her a different quest, she takes it on the condition he sends her home afterward.

No one thought to warn her of a jealous queen and her dragon minions. Or that, by helping her, the cute storyteller would go crazy. Or that her heart would rip in two when she left. Those would’ve been great facts to know ahead of time.

Considering that nothing in Ur is what it seems, the mission proves to be more than she ever imagined. But more than her own future will be in jeopardy if Kamryn doesn’t succeed.

REVIEW:
Stars: 5/5 Stars
**Added to Favorites Shelf**

I read a lot of good books. This one though. Just wow. My mind is blown. I’m in love with the story, the characters the writing. All of it.

The characters were well written and you really just enjoy them. I don’t want to be too Spoliery. But they way they cross over (You’ll understand at the end) Was AMAZING. I honestly Didn’t see it coming at all. Or the ending for the fact. I was crying a good 15% of the last part of the book.

The Visuals for the scenes and Ur was amazing. GAH. The storyline guys. THE STORYLINE. Oh my gosh. I loved it. I read 3/4 of this book in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down and kept telling myself one more chapter, one more, and then I finished.

I loved the Christian and GOD aspect. I was thinking during the book that maybe, that was who the character was, and I was glad I was right. (For those that aren’t religious, I promise it isn’t overbearing in the book, you will still enjoy it!)

If you get a chance to read this book please please please do. You won’t regret it!

Giveaway!

Desiree has graciously offered to give away the following prizes (giveaway image attached in email): a “Make everyday an adventure” pillow, “Don’t Grow Up!

Goodreads Rating: 4.52 Stars
Goodreads Summary:

How long would you wait for love?
How hard would you fight for it?

Samantha Johnson never thought she would meet her soul mate at the age of five. Yet she did. She is irrevocably in love with the man that has always been there for her. He is her strength, and she is certain he’ll be in her life forever. But she doesn’t realize that life doesn’t go the way we plan, and he is about to rip her heart to pieces.

Jonathan Smith doesn’t believe in love. His parents’ failed marriage is just another testament of the deception people willingly put themselves through. A mistake he will never allow himself to make. No exceptions. He only needs one thing, Sam. She has been his best friend since they were kids. She knows him better than anyone, and he owes her everything.

Until one fated night, and five unforgettable words, changed their lives forever. Now, thousands of miles apart, they will be forced to build a new life. But sometimes the worst of heartbreaks are meant to be.

Can they find their way back to each other, or does true love have an expiration date?

REVIEW:
Stars: 4.5/5 Stars
** spoiler alert ** So I love this book. I couldn’t put it down. I feel heartbroken by that cliff hanger ending too.

Writing: 5/5
Love Interest 1: 1/5
Love Interest 2: 4/5
That 5 Year later part is gonna haunt me..

Feels on the book:
Samantha: I LOVE HER. It was insta love for me. I felt like I could relate to the character and that is such a big deal for me. I love her story with Jonathan(In the beginning if I’m being honest, more on that later) and Christopher . Just wow. Amazing.

Jonathan: Well I hate to say it but ugh. Just No. I had no love for him at any part of the story except for when he was little. I don’t know if it was just me but I didnt like him. He seemed like what my gen would call a “Fuck boy” I feel bad for hating him but I just didnt like him. (Might be personal reasons but he reminded me of my ex and I spent the WHOLE book wanting to punch him in the face)

Jonathan & Samantha: Ill admit it was super cute that they grew up together and they had a deep connection, but I just didn’t feel like they belonged together (Horrible right?) In my mind I’m just stuck in the the asshole is doing great, go figure. jack off. Samantha deserves better… which leads me to…

Samantha & Christopher: WOW. Okay. I loved them together. I felt like they fixed each other. I didnt feel it in a rebound way I honestly wanted them to be together. I still do. They fit together, they have the same interests and he is amazing. He is the guy Samantha deserves.

Let me say again I love this book. It is going to stay with me, but I can’t help but feel robbed. Jonathan just reminds me way too much of the Guy that you should stay away from when Christopher is much rather the guy you should be with. Maybe its just me?

**Disclaimers**

I was sent this book by Author (Stephany Wallace) for review. This in no way affects my opinion on the book. (Huge thank you to Stephany!)

**The Author gave me a copy but I choose to write a review. This Review is completely honest and is my own opinions of the book*
