Kiss, Marry, Kill – Book Characters

I was tagged by the Orangutan Librarian for the Kiss, Marry, Kill – Book Characters tag. I’m going to randomly select three book characters for each tag from my “read” books on Goodreads for each round. This tag looks like lots of fun, so here we go.


Round 1: Ben, Ashton, Andrew

Kiss– Ben.

Marry– Ashton.

Kill– Andrew. Even though I ended up loving him, he was a big jerk along the way.


Round 2: Declan, Kaz, Jonah

Kiss– Declan. He’s tough on the outside, but a little soft when it comes to his woman.

Marry– Jonah. Man, this guy is a sweetheart.

Kill– Kaz. Sorry, I just don’t think I could live the way he does.


Round 3: Sawyer, Rafe, Zach

Kiss– Sawyer. He’s super amazing, but this is such a tough round!

Marry– Zach. He’s the ultimate book boyfriend.

Kill– Rafe. Sorry, Rafe. You’re just the weakest of the three.


Round 4: Sabin, Hayden, Marcello

Kiss– Sabin. He’s got such personality, but I’m not sure I’d want a relationship with him.

Marry– Marcello. He’s just awesome.

Kill– Hayden. I just couldn’t see kissing or marrying someone so young.


Round 5: Garrett, Gus, Tiras

Kiss– Gus. I want to marry Gus, but I love Garrett so much! 🙁

Marry– Garrett. I swear I did not pick The Deal on my own. It was random, but I love him so much that there is no other choice.

Kill– Tiras. No other choice but to kill him.


Round 6: Logan, Keane, Kline

Kiss– Logan.

Marry– Kline. He’s so yummy…

Kill– Keane. There just wasn’t a better option. Nice guy, but oh well.


Round 7: Ryke, Mitch, 

Kiss– Simon. I know he has moves.

Marry– Ryke. If you’ve read this book you know why.

Kill– Mitch. He’s an idiot.


Round 8: Reese, Reid, Finn

Kiss– Reese. He’s a sexy beast.

Marry– Finn.

Kill– Reid. Not sure I could be married to a fighter.


Round 9: Oliver, Max, Edward

Kiss– Oliver.

Marry– Max. He’s such a sweet guy.

Kill– Edward. He’s a shiny vampire.


Round 10: John, Alex, 

Kiss– Alex. He’s got this fierce alpha male thing going on.

Marry– John.

Kill– Will Grayson. I can’t kiss or marry a high schooler. It feels wrong.

Review: Out of Bounds by Lauren Blakely

Out of Bounds
Author: Lauren Blakely
Publication Date: November 22, 2016
Publisher: Bloomsbury Spark
Genre: Contemporary, Sports Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

The first rule of football–don’t screw with a streak.

My career is finally looking up, and I’m leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I’ve ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough.

But it’s not. And now I can’t get her out of my mind. Even when I’m playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I’m on the hottest streak of my life.

And it turns out, she’s not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team.

***

I only have one goal this season–do my part as the team’s lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There’s no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he’s the quarterback.

Right?


Lauren Blakely has a way with words. I already knew that, but I thought I would mention it for those of you haven’t had the pleasure of reading one of her books. She knows how to grab your attention immediately and never let it go. Out of Bounds did exactly that, saving me from a book slump I had been in.

I absolutely loved Out of Bounds and its characters. Drew was the football player we all fantasize about. Sure he was gorgeous and buff, but he was also smart and sweet. He didn’t let his cockiness get the best of him. Dani was everything I love in a great female main character. She wasn’t just a pretty face. She was smart, tough and knew as much about football as Drew.

Out of Bounds had a lightness to it that I loved. Dani and Drew’s romance had a little bit of the forbidden romance thing going on, but it wasn’t filled with a bunch of drama or angst. Their chemistry was amazing and apparent each time they were together. Dani and Drew’s romance was cute and so much fun to read.

The only thing I could complain about with this book is that it was too short! 150 pages wasn’t long enough. I flew through this book and was surprised when I got to the end. I wanted more Dani and Drew! I loved them so much!

Out of Bounds was a romance novel that would be perfect for the beach, a plane ride or just an escape from every day life.

Review: The Feeling of Forever by Jamie Howard

The Feeling of Forever
Series: Unplugged Love, #2
Author: Jamie Howard
Publication Date: February 7, 2017
Publisher: Swerve
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Note: I received an ARC from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Juliet St. Clair has spent her life under Hollywood’s spotlight. While being America’s favorite girl next door has had its perks, having to testify against her stalker to put him behind bars certainly wasn’t one of them. But when she thinks about walking away from it all, she can’t help remembering the enormous pile of medical bills her family is drowning under. Bills that just keep on coming.

Felix Donovan had it all–stunning good looks, gorgeous women, and a spot as the drummer to a band that’s sitting pretty at the top of the charts. Until one life-altering decision left him paralyzed from the waist down. He doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry when he wins this year’s Sexiest Man award, but the one thing he immediately does is send out a Non-disclosure agreement. Hiding his condition from the public is hard as hell, but he’s not ready to face the world while he’s still struggling to accept his new reality.

Except this year’s Sexiest Woman–Juliet St. Clair–never looks at him with pity, only desire. But falling for Juliet means a permanent spot in the tabloids, a decision Felix isn’t sure he’s ready to make. And when Juliet’s stalker re-emerges from her past, Felix’s secret isn’t the only thing at stake, it could cost Juliet her life.


I was super excited to be approved by NetGalley for The Feeling of Forever. I’ve never read a book by Jamie Howard before, but I’ve heard amazing things about her books and have wanted to read one. I’m so happy the opportunity came about with The Feeling of Forever. I absolutely loved this book!

Juliet and Felix’s relationship was adorable from the moment they met. I don’t think Jamie Howard could have come up with a better meet cute situation for a couple of celebrities. I adored everything about Juliet and Felix’s relationship from that very first moment they saw each other. Their thoughts about each other made me smile so much. As the story went on and their relationship strengthened, I fell in love with them even more. They were perfect for each other.

Juliet is one of my favorite female characters ever. She was such a good person. Her movie star status didn’t turn her into an entitled brat. Instead, she used her stardom for good. I loved the relationship she had with her family and how it made her see the world. I loved how it made her see Felix differently than other celebrity women might have. Even in her worst moments, Juliet put others first.

Felix could have been a frustrating character to read about, but Jamie Howard ensured that he wasn’t. His new path in life was tough and he hadn’t given up, but he wasn’t quite living to his full potential. Meeting Juliet changed his life in a good way. She gave him that little push he needed to get out of his own head.

All of the supporting characters in The Feeling of Forever were fun, too. I hadn’t read the first book in the series, but it didn’t really matter. The Feeling of Forever didn’t give away much from it. I was also still able to make connections with the characters that originated in that book. It was like reading a standalone novel, but it made me excited to go back and read All the Ways You Saved Me and any upcoming books in this series. I’m hoping there will be several more!

The only complaint I can see anyone making about this book was that it was a little predictable. That didn’t bother me. I had so much fun waiting for the story to unravel and reveal what I thought the outcome would be. There were still little surprises in store along the way.

New adult fans need to get their hands on this book when it comes out! I can’t rave enough about how much I enjoyed The Feeling of Forever. Jamie Howard has a new fan.
