Book Review: Remember Yesterday (Forget Tomorrow #2) by Pintip Dunn

Remember Yesterday 
(Forget Tomorrow #2) 
Pintip Dunn 
Published October 4th 2016 
by Entangled: Teen 

Follow-up to the New York Times bestselling novel, Forget Tomorrow!

Would you change the past to protect your future?

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made a decade earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

Remember Yesterday

When I read the first book in this series I knew it would become one of my favorites! It still is and with each passing installment the expectations shoot up and the author meets and exceeds them every time! It has been a while since I have been immersed in this series so I was happy to see there was a novella in Logan’s POV. I scooped it up right away and was thrown into this world I have grown to love. I cannot stress the level of intelligence and imagination that’s required to pull off a story of this magnitude. There are stories that are linear point A to point B. Stories that jump from past to present and vise versa. There are stories that incorporate past present and future. BUT none that are as intricate and involved and so perfectly in sync as the Forget Tomorrow series. Seriously, I was nerding out by the end of this installment I could not believe my four little eyes! Bravo Mrs. Dun Bravo!

The Story,
I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this installment I’ve never read a sequel that takes place 10 years later but the Author really does a marvelous job! The first book in the series follows Callie as the lead Remember Yesterday follows Jessa her little sister that isn’t little anymore. Jessa is determined to make sure her sisters sacrifice was not in vein. After one of Jessa’s missions to stop the scientists doesn’t go as planned she needs intel from Tanner she needs to find out exactly what happened to her and what will happen to her. This means she must befriend the enemy which she is loathe to do but the truth is at the tip of her fingers and she cannot say no. I enjoyed the development of characters and though I missed Callie and Logan terribly I could not put this down. I read through the night for this one, I just had to find out what was next and could not stop myself until there was no more to read.

The Characters,
everyone is back well almost everyone. Jessa is no longer the 6 year old girl that was tortured by people trying to unlock her mind she has become a determined and steadfast gal. She and her best friend have been getting into trouble since she can remember. Tanner my goodness he was perfect the was the right amount of everything to make him sooooooo swoon worthy! Logan, boy oh boy his presence is a gentle reminder of what happened ten years ago. Though none of the characters are perfect they all provide pivotal help where needed most. I cannot get into details without revealing the tendrils of awesome that make up this story just know that each is placed perfectly. Also know the execution is magnificent.

The End,
Mind BLOWN. I pretty much want to leave it at that but give me a second to gush without giving anything away. Our suspicions about a certain character in the last book turn out to be true and the result is nothing short of perfect. The memories and events are tied together in perfect synchronicity I could not have asked for a more delicious nerd meal than what the ending turned out to be. To say I’m excited about the next book would be a gross understatement. I am waiting on baited breath for the next and EVERYONE who enjoys great reads needs to pick this up!

My Rating
5.0 HOLY LIMBO!!  I need more!! Stat! October cannot come soon enough ! This was such a fun read I couldn’t sleep epic filled stars!!!

Book Excerpt: True North (True Born Trilogy #2) by L.E. Sterling

True North
(True Born Trilogy #2) 
L.E. Sterling 
Expected publication: April 4th 2017 
by Entangled: Teen

Abandoned by her family in Plague-ridden Dominion City, eighteen-year-old Lucy Fox has no choice but to rely upon the kindness of the True Borns, a renegade group of genetically enhanced humans, to save her twin sister, Margot. But Nolan Storm, their mysterious leader, has his own agenda. When Storm backtracks on his promise to rescue Margot, Lucy takes her fate into her own hands and sets off for Russia with her True Born bodyguard and maybe-something-more, the lethal yet beautiful Jared Price. In Russia, there's been whispered rumors of Plague Cure.

While Lucy fights her magnetic attraction to Jared, anxious that his loyalty to Storm will hurt her chances of finding her sister, they quickly discover that not all is as it appears…and discovering the secrets contained in the Fox sisters' blood before they wind up dead is just the beginning.??

As they say in Dominion, sometimes it’s not you…it’s your DNA.

True North - Excerpt

“Let me finish. I have a job to do. I’m obliged to do the best job I can. Not just because I work for Storm but because that’s who I am. That job is to protect you, Lu.”

I turn my head, unable to bear even another second. I’ve had my fill of Jared’s merc routine. Gentle fingers coax me back again until I’m just inches from Jared’s glittering eyes. They look feral in the moonlight.

“But Lu.” He breathes my name like it’s a full sentence. “It’s a good thing that’s my job, because… Don’t you know I can’t even help myself?” He’s so close it’s as though the boundaries of our flesh have disappeared. And within one breath and the next, his lips are on mine. Soft, warm, molding me to his mouth. Then, hungrier, he pulls me closer, seeking more.

I’m dizzy with the taste of him on my lips, in my mouth. When my strength gives out, I slump onto his chest and he holds me tighter. I can barely react to the blazing warmth of his body full down the length of me, the scratchy feeling of his shirt decal under my fingers. There’s a fire in me, too, and with his sudden nip to my lip, it ignites. I’m feverish for him. Jared’s chest is molten rock under my hands. I’m struck with a desire to run kisses up his neck, to just behind his earlobe, just to hear the quick suck of his breath. I grab his hair and pull him tighter still. My lips sting from trying to get closer, closer, and rubbing too hard up against his teeth. Jared tries to hold them back but I can feel his incisors sharpen, his growl deepen, his eyes flip to a luminescent green in the darkness of the garden as he drinks me in.

And just as suddenly as it started, he takes me by the shoulders and pulls me away. I sway on the patio bench like a rag doll, cold and dazed. The garden hums with some secret life, bugs and frogs, but it’s just Jared and me here.

Touching a finger to my swollen lips, I watch him. He pants as though he’s kicked the living tar out of someone, a glassy expression to his feline eyes. He doesn’t take his hands off me, but he isn’t going to bring me close again, either. And that’s what makes me explode.

“What kind of game are you playing with me, anyhow?” I scream at him, thankful that the garden is empty for my tirade.

Book Review:Lastland (War of the Princes #4) by A.R. Ivanovich


(War of the Princes #4) 
A.R. Ivanovich 
Published January 5th 2016 
by Alloy Entertainment 

After a devastating attack on the Northern capital, Prince Raserion has taken everything from Katelyn Kestrel . . . everything but her will to fight back and save the people of Haven.

Out of the ashes of a burning city, Prince Varion, ruler of the Northern Kingdom, resurfaces, intent on ending the seven-hundred-year war once and for all. But he can’t succeed without Katelyn’s help. She has the powerful ability to find anything she seeks—even the enemy himself, Prince Raserion.

While the two armies gather strength for one final showdown, Katelyn finds herself on the frontlines of war, pinned between right and wrong, friend and foe, life and death. With Haven’s fate hanging in the balance, Katelyn’s struggle will not only decide her future, but the future of the broken Kingdom of Lastland.

Letting Go of Everything is Crushing Yet Necessary

I have been destroyed. I am so sad pathetically weeping away; the words on the screen are blurry as I type. I’ve had a lot of real loss in the last year so much in fact…books have not moved me. Yes, I’ve laughed and I’ve connected to characters but I haven’t truly FELT what the authors have conveyed. War of the princes changed that the lodestones clearly have lots of power! This series has shown me my heart is not gone and I’m not dead inside. Thanks for that Ivonavich I will forever remember this series the series that was able to reduce me to a puddle of tears longing for characters that have suffered so much and achieved their greatest dreams but not without sacrifice. Bittersweet indeed I just loved so much and though things had to happen the way they did its still difficult. I’m still weepy. 

The Story, this series has flown by in a flurry of action, love, loss, sacrifice, growth, wonder, and a litany of other amazing adjectives I could go on forever and ever! Picking up where Monarch ends Kat has to make a stand and she will do what it takes to safe guard her people. Just a year and a half ago was so different she was so different but determined to fight now is not the time for surrender. Every character has changed so drastically no one is the same as they once were. This will continue through the end everyone is vastly different than 2 years ago and one prince is different than he was 700 years ago. I certainly feel his pain he has seen so much violence the other prince has become so corrupt and so dark unable to understand reason has torn apart his humanity the wonderful person kind and loving has become the making of a very dangerous monster. Sigh.

The Characters, Kat bravo darling you rock way to crush it…Kyle man oh man I remember the first time you came onto the pages truly your zeal stole my heart…Ruby the easy love you share with Kyle and Kat is contagious…Rune YOU! What a wonderful coincidence you ran into a ghost one night in a cave. Dylan your snarky attitude is something I will always cherish. Raserion I’m sorry you became a monster my heart is broken for the force of good you could have been. Varion thank you, you cracked open my heart from the first time you came onto the pages my heart belonged to you. To all of the other beautiful characters that were perfectly placed to spell out an amazing read BRAVO! I want to cry again just thinking about how wonderfully everything fit into place.

The End, man oh man this is tough. I feel a lump in my throat and I want to throw myself on my bed. This series has been amazing. If I had to pick out something I didn’t care for I’d have to say it is Kat’s mom I wish she was more but I’m not the one who wrote the book and everything else was so powerful that this storyline is nonplused. As careful as I’ve been to not drop any spoilers don’t expect any out of me now but I will say this. This ending isn’t perfect and it isn’t pretty but the last 10% was so powerful and so shocking and so revealing and so sad and so happy and so just that all I can do is appreciate it for what it is. A beautiful gift to the world so…Thank you A. R. Ivanovich I will cherish this story more than you know. 

My Rating 
5.0 Million Trillion Stars!!!!! As if you didn’t know…this gem has been a game changer I knew it was going to be special when I couldn’t resist giving it 5 stars from the beginning. Something I’ve never done with a series ever before. I cannot recommend these books enough!

What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They're both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.  

I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.  

I’d make my coworker fall for me.  

I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least. 

Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now. 

The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.

I'm a big fan of Meghan Quinn. Every book that I have read from her has left my bookworm heart happy. My favorite of hers is The Mother Road. Marley and Porter are in my top favorite couples. That book is one that I keep close by if ever I'm in a book funk. Meghan Quinn is one of my go-to authors when I need a rom-com that will deliver all the feels and a good dose of vitamin ''LOL''.

Co-Wrecker is a fun, sexy and unputdownable reading journey that readers all over the world will love. Our mains characters, Sadie and Andrew, are two of the most fun and captivating characters that I have ever met in book town. Their journey starts when they become co-workers at a restaurant. This will be Andrew's first ''real'' job. Receiving fudge and hugs as a payment from his dad does not count as a job ... lol!!! 

Sadie is the designated lucky duckie who gets to train Andrew. The last thing that she wants is to train the new employee. That means less tips and hours stuck with Andrew. Their work relationship starts off on the wrong foot, but even Sadie can't deny that the annoyingly hot nerd is getting under her skin with his contagious personality. As days go by, Sadie and Andrew get closer. Andrew is determined to get the girl and give her the HEA she deserves.

What an absolutely amazing reading journey!! It was filled with many steamy and hilarious moments, but with emotional ones as well. Sadie and Andrew complete each other perfectly! It was interesting to see Andrew work his magic on Sadie. She was a tough cookie with a past that left her with many emotional scars. I loved their instant chemistry and how they slowly fell for each other. Andrew worked hard to get his girl. Sadie had many walls surrounding her heart and Andrew broke every single one of them.

The supporting characters in this book were amazing and made me love the story even more! Smilly and Saddlemire are the kind of friends you want in your life. They light up a room with their presence. This rom-com was a reading escape that left me happy and I will without a doubt read it again :)


I give, Co-Wrecker, by Meghan Quinn, 4.5 sexy, hilarious, page-turning, hot nerd alert stars!


About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. 

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking. 

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
