Simone Elkeles-Perfect Chemistry

Image
Perfect Chemistry





From Goodreads:


When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.

Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.






My Review:


This book was a very pleasant surprise for me. This actually c…

Forever Family Friday (2)

Image
This a new MEME that is started by E&K Family Book Review This new Meme will give the book bloggers a chance to get to know each other. It is called 'Forever Family Friday'. Each week KW will post a question for us to answer and through this we'll get to know a little bit of  each other.

The question of the week is:
Either as an adult or a child, What has been your favorite Family Vacation?
My answer is:
Well, my favorite vacation would be the time when me and my family went to Tagaytay, here in the Philippines. It's my favorite because my papa and my grandpa were still alive at that time. We rode horses and eat a lot. It was a happy  day for me because we all bonded as a family.

See who else is sharing their favorite vacation on

Dean Mayes-The Hambledown Dream

Image
The Hambledown Dream
Dean Mayes created a masterpiece! Some may agree and some may disagree but for me, ‘The Hambledown Dream’ is one of the best fictions I’ve ever read!
It’s not your typical Romance novel, I don’t even know which category I could put it. ‘The Hambledown Dream’ has a bit of everything thrown in it. It has mystery, romance, a little paranormal and a lot of emotional drama. It’s a story of second chances and destiny.
Andy is a very gifted guitarist who is on a very dangerous self destructive path. Denny is a young man who could have lived an almost perfect life with the love of his life and best friend, Sonya, if only Cancer did not touch him.
Two young men so different from each other, men you would never put together but fate has something else in stored for them. One died and the other lived but both given the second chance they both need. (I just want to make it clear that this is not an M/M themed fiction)
I wanted to thank Mr. Dean Mayes for writing a fiction that wil…

Waiting on Wednesday #1

This is the first post I did on WOW. This is weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. It showcases the upcoming releases that we can't wait to read.
And my first 'I can't wait to read' is:

Silence (Hush, Hush #3) by Becca Fitzpatrick Expected Publication: October 04, 2011

The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.
I'm really excited to get a copy of this book and read it. I felt that the last one was cut too short for me. I really wanted to know what will happen after the BIG revelations on the last book.
What's your 'Wait…

What Is Your Most Embarrassing Moment As A Kid?
When I was a kid my mother enrolled me in ballet class.  I'm really not good at dancing, I admit it. So, when the recital came, let's just say I didn't do well. I was the smallest and youngest among the dancers and they all babied me. What I did was run around and around throughout the dance and I kept on turning and turning. It's not really supposed to be the most embarrassing moment of my life because I was too little to really remember it but my proud mother caught it on tape! And they always laugh whenever they watch it!

Nalini Singh- Slave to Sensation (Psy/Changeling Series 1)

Image
Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changelings, Book 1)

 I’ve always said that Nalini Singh is my favorite writer in Paranormal genre. When I’m reading Nalini Singh’s Paranormal fiction, I always wonder how she can create a fiction so out of this world, so unique that I really want to open her brain and see what’s inside there.
             Psy/.Changeling is set in the future where the world is so different from ours now. In this book, the people of Earth are divided in three different types. The Psy has different abilities using their brain (Psychics). They are at the top because they have the most control of the government and economy. The Psy don’t have emotions, they don’t feel anymore because they were programmed that way called ‘Silence’. It is that way in order to protect themselves and others from being a killer. The Changelings are shape shifters who have different packs/communities based on their breeds. The two strongest packs are the predators, Dark River (panthers) and the Snow Danc…

Eileen Dreyer-Never a Gentleman

Never a Gentleman (The Drake's Rakes series)


Diccan Hilliard was in shock when he woke up one morning, in bed with the spinster, Grace Fairchild. They were both drugged and they didn’t know how Diccan end up in Grace’s room, on her bed.
Grace Fairchild didn’t want to marry the single and most elegant man in England. She’s a plain girl who was too tall and was born with a limp leg. She grew up with her father who was a soldier in war. All her life, she only dreamed of having a permanent home, breed horses in a small land, display her little treasures that she has collected from the different places she’d been in war in a real home. She didn’t want to get married especially to a man who has been forced into it.
Diccan Hilliard did not want to get married especially now that there is trouble brewing from the Lions and he’s been targeted. But he had no choice, if he didn’t marry Grace they will both be ruined. It could have been easier, if only Grace has been pretty, but she’s not.

Julie Garwood - The Bride Book Review

Image
The Bride is about an English Lady and a Scot Laird.  Jamie was forced to marry Alec Kincaid when the Scot king ordered Alec to pick an English bride, while Jamie’s stepfather was punished by England’s king because he didn’t pay his taxes.  Jamie’s stepfather was to marry two of his daughters to the Scots. He didn’t really want to give Jamie to the Scot because he depends on Jamie on running his house, so he tried to hide Jamie from the Scots by telling them he only have three daughters but they still found out about Jamie.          Alec picked Jamie over her sisters because of her beauty and the strength of her character. Jamie is very tough lady who puts her family first before herself. Because she’s not really her stepfather’s daughter she’s learned to make herself useful to him and her sisters so that she would feel that she’s a part of them.          At first she’s scared of Alec because there was a rumor that Alec killed his first wife but as the story progress, she learned to t…

Nalini Singh – Guild Hunter Series One – Angel’s Blood Book Review

Image
Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter, Book 1)


Angel’s blood is my very first read on Paranormal Romances genre. I can say that it did not disappoint me. It is one of the most amazing books I’ve read and I’m hooked!
In this book Nalini Singh introduced us to Elena Deveraux, the heroine. She is a very strong willed and independent vampire hunter. Elena is hunter born which basically means that she was born with her talent/gift/skill to hunt or track vampires who has gone rouge. This book is different from other vampire hunter books because Elena is vampire hunter but she does not stake a vampire in the heart to kill it. She belongs with the Guild, an association of vampire hunters who hunts and tracks vampires and returns them to their masters, the angels.
Elena is the best hunter born in the Guild that is why she is chosen by Raphael the archangel of New York and one of the Cadre of Ten to track an archangel who has gone bad because of madness. Raphael rules New York and one of the most power…
