New Release Shameless by Lex Martin

Title: Shameless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: April 26, 2016


What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. 

Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.

I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me. 

What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.

I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.

Shameless is an adult contemporary romance/spinoff featuring a character from The Dearest Series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis of The Playmaker 

This is it—Tori Lomax’s senior year.
Her last chance to leave Nelson High without a bucketload of regrets.
Number one priority—get Colt Burgess to fall in love with her. So what if he’s the Raider’s number one playmaker? So what if he’s so far out of her league, the idea of them together would rupture the school’s social order?
She has to try, before it’s too late.
She’s come up with the perfect set of plays. All Colt has to do now is buy into them.

Colt Burgess wants one thing: to play football after high school. But his grades are tanking and his dreams of playing college ball are fading…fast. He shouldn’t waste time on Tori Lomax. However, she was a friend back in middle school, and he can’t really ignore her small request for a favor. How hard can it be to get the guy she’s lusting after to notice her?
He’ll help her out, and then he’ll focus on what’s really important: football.
Assuming he can stop thinking about her…



The Playmaker (A Big Play Novel Book 1)The Playmaker by Jordan Ford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved the book! I completed reading in like four hours which totally shocked me cuz the book is like 300+ pages and it didn't felt like that. I'm so excited with for the series. I rarely read contemporaries and especially young adult ones. I know now where to go now when I wanna read the genre.
The writing is cool and easy to follow. I liked the characters especially Tori, I know she is the main character but her uniqueness and quirkiness was adorable. And how she bounced up with her bright smile. I fell in love with her through Colt's eyes. They are so freaking cute!
Whenever I think about them I've this cheesy grin on my face. I'm so freaking excited to know more about other characters in the book. And eek I'm reading the second book now. So I'm gonna go continue my reading and you go start reading this book.

 Synopsis of The Red Zone

Mack Mahoney is hot, popular and used to getting exactly what he wants…until he sets his sights on the new girl—Kaija Bennett. She’s an exchange student from New Zealand and attending Nelson High for three months. Mack’s never been one for love at first sight, but this chick has him feeling things he never knew existed within him and in spite of her feisty rejections, he’s determined to get to know her.

Kaija Bennett did not escape her New Zealand high school only to be dragged into the popular crowd at Nelson High. She’s on the run from a past she wants to forget, and the attention of the gorgeous quarterback is not helping. Can she resist his pulling power and keep her secret safe? Or will the dynamic football captain unearth the truth and make her fall harder than she ever has before?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed it very much but The Playmaker is my fav among them. I loved getting to know the sied of Mack cuz dang it he is adorable. Raiders have soft side of them which I'm enjoying getting to know. First Colt, Mack and am excited especially to get to know Finn.
My fav part were from Mack's POV. I like Kaija and loved her devlopment to be a better person. The whole Kaija situation reminded me of manga Silent Voice. It has the same concept.
I couldn't connect to the situations Kaija faced but that doesn't mean I didn't get it. I loved how she owned up her past and become a better person.
I liked the banter and pranks Mack and Kaija played with each other. And I'm hopeless romantic no I'm hopeful romantic, and these characters are making me even more of a dork for this genre. Lol, I enjoyed the book and am even more for the last two book in the series. Got the arc in exchange of an honest review.

Title: Catalyst (The Deception Game, Book One)
Author: Kristin Smith
Release Date: November 21, 2016
Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing
Genre: YA near-future thriller

Book Synopsis:

Too pretty.

Too smart.

Too perfect.

In a crumbling, futuristic Las Vegas where the wealthy choose the characteristics of their children like ordering off a drive-thru menu, seventeen-year-old Sienna Preston doesn’t fit in. As a normal girl surrounded by genetically modified teens, all of her imperfections are on display. But after the death of her father, everything she's ever known and loved changes in an instant.

With little skills to help provide for her family, Sienna clings to the two things that come easily—lying and stealing. But not all thief-for-hire assignments go as planned. When a covert exchange of a stolen computer chip is intercepted, she becomes entangled with a corrupt government official who uses her thieving past as leverage, her mother as collateral, and the genetically modified poster boy she’s falling for as bait.

In order to rescue her mother, there may only be one option—joining forces with the Fringe, an extremist group, and their young leader who’s too hot to be bad. Problem is, these revolutionaries aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re hiding could be more dangerous than Sienna is prepared for. In the end, she must be willing to risk everything to save the one thing that matters most.
