On a Tuesday…Review

onatuesdayWe met on a Tuesday.
Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday.
And it all fell apart on a Tuesday…

 Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell…And a virgin.

At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set:
Professional football for me. Law school for her.

But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.

Until tonight.

We met on a Tuesday.
Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday.
And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday…

**This is a second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young”**

 

Review: I started finished this book while I at the hair salon yesterday. I couldn’t put it down. I literally was reading in the waiting room, at the shampoo bowl, under the hair dryer, in the styling seat while I was getting my hair flat ironed. It was that good! I love a good love story and Whitney G manages to do it right every time.

Grayson (I love this name) is so hot and lovingly sweet it is ridiculous. I am a big-time football fan and the fact that he played added to his sexy. The cover model totally helped. Charlotte was no slouch either, she was smart and sexy and made my boy work hard for her heart. She didn’t put up with his shit At. All.

I loved that this book volleys back and forth between the past and present as well as between voices. We get to hear the story told from Grayson and Charlotte. But let me tell you what, there comes a point in this story when I was ready to slap a hoe, y’all. She was really about 2 seconds from getting it!! The wringing is good and the way the story unfolds keeps your attention. All in all this was a fantastic read for me. Considering I am knee deep in Creative Non-Fiction as well as Shakespeare…Oh! I can’t forget Modern Literary Theory this break from all the drab was wonderful. I give it 5 stars!

Weekend Reviews…

This weekend I was nursing my poor little broken thumb, so typing this is quite the task. However, while I was sitting home letting my boys wait on me (wink wink) I got a little reading done. I read two books from last year that I’ve been meaning to get to and it didn’t put a dent in my TBR. I wish I could take a week off just to scratch off a few more, so without further adieu…

graysonGrayson’s Vow by Mia Sheridan! OMG this book was so good but I love Mia’s stories anyway. She has a way of writing that just draws you in and hooks you (Archer’s Voice) immediately. Grayson Hawthorn was dealt a bad hand. All the things this poor man goes through makes your heart bleed for him but you end up loving him because he tries so hard. He’s a little rough around the edges because of his hard-knock life but also so sweet at his core that you root for him the entire book. His vow is to his a-hole dad and because he wants his approval so bad he does all that  he can to keep his promise. He’s at the breaking point when this sassy twenty-two year old shows up with an offer he can’t refuse.

Kira is amazing, I love her from the second she starts speaking. She is spunky, cute and gives off that “life gives you lemons/lemonade” happy go lucky vibe, however; it’s not to the point of annoying. She has a plan that will make everyone’s life better and although it is a CRAZY AF one it has the potential to work and work out well. And this my friends is where I will stop because everything else is total spoiler worthy. Just know that Kira is the woman, Grayson is the man and Mia gets 5 stars for this one!

neverThen I read Never Let You Go by Katy Regnery. Oh. My. God this book was so damn good. I cried then smiled and cried again. I was mad and hurt and felt so much while reading this book needless to say it didn’t fair well for the boys in the house this weekend. So Holden and Griselda meet in foster care when they are 10yrs old. Holden is a small guy and has a stutter…wait a stammer as he calls it. So they are sent to the store and get kidnapped by this total creeper that makes you want to vomit. Reading the “memories” of this time in their lives was so hard for me. I hate abuse and abuse to children is the ultimate worst for me…so be warned. Anywho, this is told from both POVs so here is where the angst comes into play considering they meet 10 years later. I loved Holden from the beginning the depth of his feelings for Griselda was so overwhelming and powerful that you felt his love jumping off the pages of the book…

He paused at the precipice for only a moment before stepping forward into forever, letting go, opening his heart and releasing his body as her name passed his lips and he surrendered to the inevitability that was his deep and eternal love for Griselda.

Now it wouldn’t be complete without some adult drama to stir the pot and with Griselda’s douchebag boyfriend and Holden’s sketchy hook-up girl. I was a little disgusted with Holden’s predicament because it felt a little extra and the way it was handled although honorable was totally not needed for this story. But I will give this bad boy 5 stars nonetheless! So grab this bad boy on Amazon today. It’s the start of a series of STANDALONES

Aonlyforeverbout ONLY FOREVER

The fourth and final installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.

There comes a time when Emma must face the secret she kept from Grayson. But she never thought it would be while she stood on stage at Emerald’s. The seconds she has to convey that her life is in danger are lost in the devastation that she sees rip through him.

She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please, please don’t leave me here alone.”

But there’s more on the line than just Emma’s safety. There’s the danger that brought Titan’s Delta team in to the strip club in the first place. A threat that’s too close to home, too close to the family, the daughter and woman Grayson plans to claim.

I push away the sudden spring of fear. Life’s too unknown, with hidden enemies and unseen terrors. The idea that I could lose her again… it’s unbearable.

A love story like Grayson and Emma needs a forever love, and somehow they’ll find their way to her fairytale.

EXCERPT

“You’ve always been by my side. From the day we met. And God knows there were years of secrets and storms and pain and tears, until I came out the other side.”

“Gray…”

“I’m a better man, and I exist for you, for us.” I hold my breath and watch her silence. My chest hurts; my lungs burn. My throat is tight as I choke on the decades’ worth of sentiment. “I love both of you so deeply that my survival, my sanity, would be gone if I couldn’t be yours.”

My voice cracks, and her lips find mine. It’s a soft kiss but packs a powerful punch. She whispers, “We’re yours forever.”
