🌈******************************🌈

This was such an interesting read. At first I wasn’t sure f it would be something I was into. But I gave it a chance and ended up loving it. NR Walker did such a great job with Shaun. I was addicted to this story and cried at the end, which is hard to do, I am not a crier.  It is also scary to think that one day this will be the future for us. 

🌈******************************🌈

In 2068, androids are an integrated part of human life. Big Brother no longer just watches from the shadows. It’s in every household. 

Lloyd Salter has OCD issues with noise and mess, and he’s uncomfortable with human interaction. When his ex claimed the only thing perfect enough to live up to his standards was an android, Lloyd dismissed it. But two years later, after much self-assessment, he thinks he may have been right.

SATinc is the largest manufacturer of androids in Australia, including the Fully Compatible Units known as an A-Class 10. Their latest design is the Synthetic Human Android UNit, otherwise known as SHAUN.

Shaun is compatible to Lloyd’s every need; the perfect fit on an intellectual and physical basis. But Lloyd soon realises Shaun’s not like other A-Class androids. He learns. He adapts. Sure that SATinc is aware Shaun functions outside of his programmed parameters, Lloyd must find a way to keep Shaun safe.

No one can know how special Shaun is. No one can know he’s evolved.

Fake It by Victoria Kinnaird

Happy Musical Monday! I read a awesome YA LGBTQ+ book about a group of friends trying to make a semi decent band and make it through their senior year of high school in one piece. I loved this story and the characters. I especially loved one of the main characters, JJ Keswick. The flow of this book was easy to get into and I was hooked on the story from start to finish. One unique thing that I absolutely loved was the author put song titles at the start of each chapter to make a playlist for the book. The playlist sets the mood for each chapter as well as the overall book. I got to discover new bands and remember old favorites while reading. 

QOTD: If you could choice one song to be your theme song what would it be?

Fake It by Victoria Kinnaird 5 out of 5 stars.

🌈******************************🌈

Jack Daveyson grew up with a guitar in his hands and his head full of melodies. Ten years after writing his first riff, he knows exactly what he wants to do with his life – graduate high school, escape Wayville and hit the road with his band, Forever Fading Echoes.

But it’s a bit hard to launch a band without a singer. Enter JJ Keswick.

JJ is everything Jack isn’t: rich, confident and popular. He also happens to be one of the best singers Jack has ever heard.

Jack reluctantly lets JJ into his band and into his life. The spark between them in the practice studio grows into something neither of them were expecting – a love that threatens to tear their lives apart.

Pack your guitar, pull on your band tee shirt and turn up the volume – it’s time to meet your new favorite band.

Single Awareness day and weekend TBR

Happy single awareness day! What are you reading this weekend?

I got 2 new ARCs which was a huge surprise! I am always shocked when I get ARC’s and am super grateful for them. 

I am still trudging through The Hunger games. I am on Chapter 9 so a little behind in my game plans. I need to be at chapter 14 by tomorrow which I am sure I can get to easily. 

I got my preorder of The Queens Assassin by Melissa De LA Cruz. I really want to dive into this one as well but I am not sure with all the other books i am currently reading if I will get to it this weekend.

Sticky Fingers by Davidson King

I received Sticky Fingers as a ARC for a honest review. I loved this book. I have found a new author to read. I absolutely loved the writing, the story, the characters, even the villains. Maddox isn’t your typical rich celebrity. He is down to earth, smart, charming, and cares about others instead of just his riches. Kyle is trudging through a hardship in his adult life where he has to make a tough decision. When these two meet there is a lot of tension. I was hooked form the start of the book to the end. It was so hard to put down I was hiding in the bathroom at work to sneak in extra reading time. I cannot wait to read another Davidson King book! 

5 out of 5 stars. 

🌈******************************🌈

When the desperate needs of his family must come before his dream of finishing his degree, Kyle, feeling both guilt ridden and heartbroken, knows what he needs to do. But when his help isn’t enough, a shady idea offered by his even shadier friend proves the only saving grace.

Mergers, acquisitions, and philanthropy consume Maddox’s days and nights prompting an overdue visit to his best friend’s luxury resort. Finally enjoying some R&R, he meets an adorable botanist working there for the summer. But a surprise visit from his ex and a shocking theft from his suite turn Maddox’s trip into chaos.

Trusting his gut, Maddox strikes a deal to help Kyle make up for his sticky fingers. But when his heart gets involved and his ex refuses to let go, Maddox’s plan starts to unravel. A summer of romance, deceit, and greed have both men navigating emotional waters, leaving them to wonder if true love and their happy ever after will come to pass.

Bet On Me by Saxon James

Im so excited for this new release by Saxon James. The cover is GORGEOUS! This book is definitely on my TBR for this month!

QOTD: What romance books are you reading in the month of February?

🌈******************************🌈

Taryn

Losing a long term boyfriend to my football career highlights one thing: it’s impossible for me to have both. With only a few years left to play, I decide to throw my full focus into the game. Then I meet Elliot. The flirty texts are immediate, trusting him comes easily, and when we’re together, I’ve never experienced something so explosive.

Until he drops a real bomb on me. He’s a bookie. And suddenly, being closeted is the least of my worries.

Elliot

I have a plan. Make a large amount of money in a short amount of time, set myself up for life, and then get the hell out of bookmaking. Good at it or not, it’s illegal, and that’s a very gray line I’d prefer not to keep crossing. Especially when I meet Taryn. He’s the first guy who’s been able to steal my focus away from my goal, and I’ll do anything to deserve him.

Even quit.

But the thing about illegal jobs is, they’re not always so easy to walk away from.

Protecting Damian by Anders Grey

I was looking for something different to read lately. Something with a little more angst. I was recommended Protecting Damian. I read this book in two days. It was so freaking good. I couldn’t put it down I wanted to know what would happen next. I really enjoyed the writing style of @Andersgrey I cannot wait to dive into the other books in this series. 

🌈******************************🌈

Add a playlist: The Hype by Twenty One Pilots

🌈******************************🌈

Izak: I knew Damian Cox was a haughty brat before I even laid eyes on him. As the lead singer for a popular band, he was destined to be arrogant and difficult. He’s never had a bodyguard who lasted more than a month, and now I’m just another challenge for him—another bodyguard to break. 

But unlike the others, I’m unbreakable. Two can play at Damian’s game. 

And despite the annoyingly charming way he’s growing on me, I don’t intend to lose.

Damian: I challenged myself: two weeks to make Izak quit. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans. The stubborn meathead refuses to bend, and for some reason, it’s stupidly endearing.

Sleeping with your bodyguard is a bad idea nine times out of ten. I know that better than anyone because I’ve had about a million bodyguards and haven’t been attracted to any of them—until now. 

But you know what’s an even worse idea? Falling in love with your bodyguard.

Completely Changed (DriverCity Book 1)

Completely Changed by Kamisa Cole is a story about Alec and Kash. I love both of these characters. They both have complicated backstories that they have to grow through. This book hits on a few hard topics and I think the author has done a wonderful job writing about in a elegant way. 

I started this series a little backwards. Last week I read the second book first and then the first book. Even though it was out of order the story was still great and I did not spoil myself or get lost. I love that this series can be read as stand alone if you wanted. However I am so invested in these characters. I cannot wait to read more books and learn more about some of the others like Gage and Nash. 

🌈******************************🌈

Have you read Completely Changed and want the second book for free? Check out my post about Completely Scared DriverCity book 2! I am giving away a free copy of the eBook!

July wrap up

July wrap up: I read two books in July. Booo. This year has been a bad year of reading for me. But even though I’m not reading a lot I read two really good books in July. The Sun and her Flowers was a great poetry read. Red White and Royal Blue was absolutely hilarious. I think both of these books only took me two days to read because I enjoyed them so much. 🌈******************************🌈
