When opposites attract...

So far in my major book reading lately I have found that no one else but Susan Elizabeth Phillips can write a great romance novel where every single one (thus far that I've read) deals with opposites attracting to each other (or at least that's what the characters believe in the beginning). My favorite of her novels is still "Match Me If You Can" from her The Chicago Stars books.

However, I just finished reading "Ain't She Sweet"!! And I have to say it has become my second fave out of all her books! Definitely 5 out of 5 stars! It's all about Sugar Beth (a Southern Belle who growing up has made her town resent from all the trouble she caused) and Colin (a British writer who moved to the south and when he started to try making a name for himself, met his match - not always in the best way either). The story is really charming ... and I like how Sugar Beth and Colin "overcome their demons". So-to-speak. =0)

To find out more on this novel or others by Susan Elizabeth Phillips then check out her website.

Tis life in the slow lane ...

Well this past Friday I found out that my position is moving from Full-Time to Part-Time. Which I am still upset about and sometimes I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack with all the stress that I feel in my chest. So, I've been going to the library lately (since I need to conserve my money till I get either a better job or some part-time jobs) to keep my mind off the negative things. In the past few days I've already finished reading "Dreamland" by Sarah Dessen, "Honey, Baby, Sweetheart" by Deb Caletti, and "How to Be Popular" by Meg Cabot. All of those books were cute ... but nothing great to report about them. I am getting "Tempted" (from the House of Night series) by PC and Kristin Cast tomorrow since I pre-ordered it (YAY!!!) ... but other then that I need to start picking them up from the library. Any other books you might be able to recommend for me??

But anyways ... I'm now job hunting ... for anything that will make up for the money I'm loosing out on. *shakes head* Hopefully things will work out for the better! =0)

I’ve been waiting all my life, And now I found ya

Looking for a great romance story that isn't 500 pages long? Well ... "The Wallflower" (part of the Halle Pumas series) by Dana Marie Bell would be one for you to look into. It's a cute story, but a quick read (over 200 pages but under 300 pages) that I couldn't out down! It's about Max & Emma who have known each other since they were teens but after moving in different directions (by going to college and just growing up), they find themselves living in their hometown again. Emma has always been in love with Max growing up, but thinks that since he has never dated someone like her she doesn't stand a chance with him. However, Max is instantly drawn to Emma as soon as he hears her speak ... and now the two can't get enough of each other. The only problem is Max's ex just can't take NO for an answer .. know matter what.

3 out of 5 stars, this story I just couldn't put down!

Right now (at the time of this post) you can read it FREE on your Kindle or iPod through Amazon.com, click here to download it!

To find out more about this book and/or series, or any other of Dana's books then check out her website!

Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about babe, A little mystery to figure out.

How can an actuary and a constant risk taker ever make it work? Well you can find out if you read: "Speed Dating" by Nancy Warren! It's about Kendall, a winner of the Actuary of the Year award, is in Charlotte, NC to accept this award and an hour before the event her fiancé informs her that he's leaving her for his pregnant mistress, who is also their work colleague. Startled, pissed, and desperately needing to find out where her dress for the event is, Kendall finds herself locked out of her hotel room in nothing but silk lingerie. When her bosses start walking down the hall she goes into another hotel room that has it's door open so she wont be seen, and ends up in Dylan's room. Dylan is a Nascar driver, who is waiting for is hired actress date to show up so he can attend his ex-wife's wedding. He assumes Kendall is that women and because of what has just happened to her in the past hour or so she agrees to go with him. ........ After the wedding he finds out she's not really an actress and they attend her acceptance part of her awards ceremony. Kendall makes a speech that leaves her co-workers feeling she might be a bigger risk then they're willing to take, telling her she should take some time off. ...... Which is how Kendall finds herself as Dylan's good luck charm for his races during the next 3 months .... but when things start becoming more for her will he hang on or crash and burn?

It was definitely a cute read! 3 out of 5 stars! I would have given it 4 but the ending just left it hanging. =0P Which is why I am a big fan of epilogues, so everything can wrap up in the end. But this one didn't have that. =0(

Oh wells .....

Made the Grade: Perfect Chemistry Novel, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 357 | Release Date: 2009 | Publisher: Walker & Company

"Perfect Chemistry" [Perfect Chemistry Novel, Book 1] by Simone Elkeles

My Book Summary : To those who don't know her Brittany is her high school's golden girl. She has blond hair, high class clothes, rich parents, a hot ride, she's dating the football star, and she seems just about perfect. However, her home life is completely different. Yes, her parents are still rich, but with an older sister with a disability her parents (especially her mother) put more pressure on her to make sure she acts/looks perfect so that nobody has the ability to start talking bad about them. Because of this facade she has been putting on for others outside her house, it has made it so she doesn't let many people (if any) get close to her.

Alejandro (Alex) lives for the day since he is never sure if he'll live to see the next. When he was six-years-old his father died in front of him, and he swore he wasn't going to be anything like his father, but now 12 years later he's in the same gang (Latino Blood) as his father was. He doesn't want to be a part of Latino Blood, but to make sure he protects his family he is and he know that the only way out would to be beaten to death by the members or killed by someone outside of his gang, and neither look like interesting options. Plus, nothing is more important to him then his family.

Now it's their senior year in high school and they get paired up together as Chemistry partners, despite their objections to their teacher. Working together at first is hard since they both have their own opinions of each other. However, as time passes they find that despite their lifestyles they have more in common then they originally thought.

Soon they start to find being together comes with a price of friends, family, and the loyalty to those they originally believed were there for them. Thankfully their best friend still have their backs up until the end, but how will they be able to deal with a town that is set out against them? And when Alex finds out more about his father murder all those years ago, will he be able to avenge his father or will his fate be the same as his father's?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! This story is kinda like "West Side Story" since you have the gangs (even though Brittany or her family isn't involved in one themselves) and the romance where everything is set up against them. I like that the book is written from both view points of the main characters! I wasn't sure I was going to like this book, mostly because I saw the author video for it (which is below) and the Brittany character was portrayed as a really flighty person, however once I started reading the book I feel in love with the main characters! They had more depth then I expected (because of the video) and I started routing for them immediately! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
"So you understand why I'd freak out if my parents find out we're . . . friends."
"You'd get in trouble? Shit, you're eighteen. Don't you think you can be friends with who you want to by now? The umbilical cord's been cut, you know."
"You don't understand."
"Try me."
"Why do you want to know so much?"
"Aren't chem partners supposed to know a lot about each other?"
She gives a short laugh. "I hope not."
Truth is, this girl isn't what I thought she'd be. From the moment I told her about my dad, it was as if her entire body sighed in relief. As if someone else's misery comforted her, made her feel as if she wasn't alone. I still can't understand why she cares so much, why she chooses the I-am-flawless facade to show the world. ~ within Chapter 24
