I’m supposed to be strong.
Until I found I was in a relationship I swore I would never be in.
I didn’t know how trapped I was until Dean Sailer walked into the diner, making me question who I turned into.
Dean reeked of overconfidence. He’s sarcastic and thinks he’s funny.
The worst part is I find myself smiling when I don’t feel like it. He brought out something inside me that I locked away a long time ago.
I wanted nothing to do with him.
I wanted to stay contained in my world.
When tragedy threatens the life of me and my best friend, he’s the one I find myself relying on.
He’s there for me when no one else is.
No matter how much I try to resist Dean Sailer, he seems to delve deeper into a place I thought was gone.
Can I change?Or will I be the definition of what I’ve made myself out to be?
I thought the book was a good book, while I gave the book 4 stars, it was more like a 3 1/2 one. The reason I rounded it to a 4 is because I really loved Dean, I just thought he was pretty awesome. I also liked Risa the heroine of the book, I just wish when she thought something about Dean she would have asked him and not just assume it to be true.
I really loved Dean's friends a lot, as well as Risa's friend. I haven't read any of the prior books but I didn't feel lost, coming in a little late. I thought the end of the book was pretty good, and I might go back and read the books that are out that I haven't read yet. The book was a nice read and like I mentioned had some pretty awesome characters in it to fall in love with.
I am so happy I volunteered to take part in the tour for this book. It was a lot of fun.
I am a Leo. Born August 10, living on the east coast. I self-published my first novel, PNEUMA, November 2014, and it’s hasn’t stopped since.
One of my biggest problems was having too much to read. Now my newfound problem; having too much to write and not enough hands to type it out. Not enough brains to put the stories together fast enough. Not enough tea or coffee to keep me awake 24/7.
So, like every normal person, I have to take it one day at a time.
My cravings for sweets keep me going, any sort of cakes (especially red velvet), pies, cookies, and ice cream.
I have a cat named Bongo-Bongo, who loves to get in my way when I’m trying to work, but is too cute for me to fight him off.
And then I have my family, specifically my husband, who puts up with my endless nights, my tapping of the keyboard, my ridiculous imagination, and yet, he always encourages me to believe in myself and follow my dreams.

Really not sure about this book it's pretty confusing for me so far. So far it is also pretty boring. But it looks like things are going to start picking up, so hopefully exciting things will start to happen.
I don't like how the heroine thinks she's in love with the guy in the story. But maybe it's because of her condition, I am not really sure about someone that can only has memories for a couple of hrs and then forgets everything. Plus it's probably also do to the fact that the guy who kissed her and his name is Drake by the way, Flora remembers that happened. And that's all she is able to remember, besides the first 10 yrs of her life, before she got sick.
So I am really hoping things start to get better for me, in regards to the story picking up. More to come later.

A compelling love story about Caralee, her best friend Teddy, and her new love interest, Sam. The intensity of Sam entering into Cara’s life challenges her friendship with Teddy – which was forged long ago when they encountered a deranged gunman. Teddy will stop at nothing to protect Cara – even if it means keeping his long time business associate and once best friend far away from her.
This story is about friendship and relationship triangles, love and protection, love and understanding, and love and true love.
Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California and attended the University of Oregon, where she graduated in 2003 with a degree in journalism. From there she moved to Denver and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.
It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a Realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book (and binge-watching the subsequent films) in the New Adult genre. Feeling hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story leading up to their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles trilogy.
Erin still lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband, Phil, and their three children.

I really loved this book it was just as funny as the first book, and I am so glad that it was only two books. I thought Denton and his best-friend Paolo were so freaking funny in this book. It was so interesting to see what happened in regards to individuals death-date, since Denton survived, (I hope this isn't a spoiler since it mentions this in the title after all.)
It was fun to see how Denton would get himself out of this crazy mess, and to find out if Paolo would live or die on his death-date, since it was coming up quickly.
I was very happy with how things turned out, it was definitely an interesting ending, and I had a lot of fun reading the book. If you read the first book in the series, I would definitely recommend you to read this one also. And if you didn't read the first one, definitely going and read it, as soon as possible. I really don't think you'll regret it.
Thanks so much NetGalley, the publisher, and author, for letting me read this book, it was fun. I am so glad I voluntarily requested this book from you. The review is my honest opinion on how I felt about this fantastic and funny, as well as awesome book.

Brooklyn Harper’s worst nightmare has become her reality. She has been captured by Isolation…
Trapped in a white-walled labyrinth by Juneau Malloy, Brooklyn is faced with the horrors of Isolation’s finest training yet. The skills she learned as an Omen Operative in Camp Number Eleven are put to the test in the form of brutal assessments of her strength, skills, and fortitude. Confused and disheartened, Brooklyn and the group of renegade Omens prepare for whatever trials Isolation has in store for them.
Juneau has caged her once again, but Brooklyn is far from broken…
When Brooklyn finds out her best friend Gabriel is alive, she goes on a violent rampage in search of her, but instead earns herself a stint in solitary confinement. Juneau attempts to tame Brooklyn through grueling exercises before offering her one radical choice. Brooklyn must hand over her freedom in order to spare her friends. She’ll become a showpiece Juneau will auction off to the highest bidder for her skills in assassination, defense, and combat.
There must be a way out, and the renegade Omens have to find it…
Brooklyn has no intention of becoming Juneau’s latest achievement. During a mind-warping training simulation, Brooklyn uncovers Isolation’s greatest secret and their darkest mistake. Juneau Malloy has created something far more sinister than the Omens, and it’s ready to eat the world alive.
As the battle with Isolation intensifies, Brooklyn is faced with her most dangerous choice yet…
Save her friends—or save humanity.
Wow if you read the first book in this series and thought things were crazy in that one, you haven't seen what crazy really is. My favorite characters have to be Brooklyn, Porter, and Gabriel. What happens in this book, really makes me wish the third book was in my greedy little hands right this freaking minute.
The ending and what happens with the whole team is freaking nuts, but one hell of a ride. It ends with one freaking nail bitting cliffhanger, and I can't wait to see what happens next. What one of the bad guys wants to do is freaking insane, and I sure didn't see it coming that's for sure. I would definitely recommend this book for individuals that want to go on one freaking crazy and awesome adventure.
I asked to be part of this book tour, and this review is my honest opinion on how I felt about this very interesting book.

I did it all for you…
Cara’s boyfriend is dead.
When fingers start pointing at her, she knows she’s in more trouble than she originally thought. Because Cara can see that something isn’t right.
As her carefully constructed life begins to crumble, Cara isn’t sure who she is anymore.
But maybe that’s exactly what someone wants her to think…
I was got into the book from the beginning. At first I didn't really care for the main character Cara. But she really started to grow on me. I really wasn't sure about Ryan either, that's because I knew he was hiding something. It was very interesting in regards to who the killer was and why that person killed Cara's Ex. And I loved that I didn't figure out who the killer was until the reveal. Cara's friend who is the sister of her Ex was such a bitch. And once they weren't friends anymore, is when Cara starts to be a more nicer person. Ryan was a really hotie that's for sure. And I thought he helped make her a strong character as well. The ending was definitely left open for more, but also tied up, in regards to why Cara's ex was killed.
I was happy with the ending for now, but I hope there is more to come with Cara and Ryan. Because I would definitely love to read more about these two characters.
I would definitely recommend this book to individuals that love some romance, but some mystery as well. It's a really fast book to, it didn't take me much time at all to finish the book, only about five hrs.
I voluntarily requested to take part in the book tour and my opinion is my own.
