Book Recommendation – December 2017

Click here to get “Behind The Bars” by Brittany C. Cherry 

 1. Behind The Bars 

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, I became her darkest storm. 

 

Thoughts 

 
This book has been in my radar for a while now. When it first came out, I was skeptical whether to read it or not, so I waited to see my friends reviews. And true enough, all the reviews about this book is positive.
 
I am planning to read “Behind The Bars” soon as I am curious to know what the hype is about, which is rightfully deserved I believe. I have been told that this book is heart wrenching and it will make you feel all sorts of emotions. So if that is the kind of book you are looking to read, definitely check this one out.

2. Roomies 

Marriages of convenience are soinconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.


Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

 

Thoughts 

I’m excited for a good contemporary read. Having been reading “dark” books for a while, I feel like it is good to switch things around every now and then to keep things interesting. That was when I happen onto this book.

As far as the summary goes, it looks like it is going to be a very fun read with easy to love characters. I am looking forward to read this one. And oh, let me leave you with a quote from the book before I go.

“Come home and kick me in the teeth if you need to, but then kiss me.”

3. Crow (Boston Underground Series) 

He’s a killer. A mobster.

The last man on earth I’d ever want to be with. I won’t lose my head just because he’s hot, Irish, and has a wicked accent to boot. 

He’s one of the only leads in my best friend’s disappearance, and I don’t trust him. 
So I’ve got a few rules in mind when it comes to dealing with Lachlan Crow. 

1. Keep a clear head and don’t get distracted. 
2. Do what’s necessary and never forget why you’re there. 
3. Never, and I mean never, fall for him. 

Fourth and final rule? 

Throw out the book altogether. Because the rules don’t apply when it comes to the Irish mafia. 

It was only supposed to be temporary, but now Lachlan thinks he owns me. He says he’s not letting me go. 

And I believe him.

***

Lachlan.

I don’t know who she is. I don’t know why she’s here. 

But if it’s my attention she wants, she has it. 

The Russians want her dead, and now it’s up to me to look out for her. This girl is trouble. A distraction I can’t afford. 

So why have I already decided she’s mine? 

I’ve claimed her and there’s no going back now. 

 

Thoughts 

Can you hear me screaming from glee? I am so hyped! You know me, as much as I like fun and fluffy books, you know I can’t live without my sexy alpha males. You give me sexy dominant men with a twist of them being in the mafia, you know I’m in. 
 
This book is a part of the Boston Underground Series, there are 4 books total in the series. Each books can be read as stand-alones as it features different main characters and different stories. So if you are not feeling like reading the whole series, you can just pick those that you feel like you might enjoy.
