Summary from Goodreads:

“Mackenzie “Max” Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings, they just might disown her. Even worse, they’re expecting to meet a nice, wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but then she meets Cade.

Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in Texas. So far though, he’s kept the problems and had very little opportunity to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when Cade plays the role a little too well, they’re forced to keep the ruse going. And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.”




OMG! Cade Winston, “My twenty-four-hour, pretend-we-met-in-a-library, mom-hugging, golden-boy-boyfriend!”
I love you so much and I want to take you home!!! Can I? Please?!

The book started with Cade’s POV and just like that, I was hooked, addicted, and I couldn’t put it down. For almost 3 hours, I glued myself reading it. This is way so much better than Losing It, this one blew me away. I remember I already fell in love with Cade from the first book, I even wrote it down in my review. But knowing him more in his own story had made me head over heels in love with him. He made me forget all my other book boyfriends. And for that, I can really say that he’s exceptional, he topped my list. I know, I know, I’m still drooling and I can’t stop myself from talking about him, I can’t help it. I’m sure that anyone can understand what I’m feeling right now once they’ve read the book. I promise, I’m not exaggerating. Forgive me, I just fell in love. LOL! 😉

Anyway, I also like the heroine, Mackenzie or Max, even though I’m so jealous right now. She’s different from other heroines, she’s bad ass, a rocker, a musician, a happy-go-lucky girl. She smokes, she dances, she sings, she dates a lot, she has baggages and tattoos. I admit I don’t like her for Cade because he’s too good for her. He’s a good guy, a gentleman, an excellent student. He’s funny, hot, gorgeous and way too perfect! But I learned to understand Max along the way, she has a story to tell, a family-related matter. And I love how the book emphasized about letting go and when not to let go, to learn how to be brave, to fight, and to move forward..

My favorite lines from Cade:
“Trust me. This was much better than the alternative. I’m exactly where I want to be.” He glanced down at me and gave me a half-smile.”

“You don’t know how much I’ve thought about this tattoo. I want to memorize it so that every time I close my eyes I can see the way it accentuates your body.”

“I know that you make me laugh, and that I love hearing your voice, especially when you sing. I know that I haven’t stopped thinking about you since the day you sat down beside me at that coffee shop.”

I love you Cade Winston!

And I love the author for creating him!

I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves romance… Heck, I just recommend it to all!

5 golden stars!!!

Summary from Goodreads:

“Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers…that is until she acquired an imprint of her own. Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.

When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.”




I love this series so much that I practically read this book the first week it came out, though I couldn’t say that I love this book as much as the others. The third book will always be my favorite. This one is slower than the other books of the series. But it never failed to give me creeps, it’s as scary. The murderers are bolder and too gross.

I admire Vi for staying sane in spite of everything. But she became so frustrating and annoying here. Ugh. Of course, I understand that she’s depressed because of her own imprint, but she should accept the fact that it wasn’t her fault. She had to do it to save herself. She’s so lucky to have Jay as her boyfriend, he’s such a sweet and thoughtful guy. I know she totally doesn’t deserve him, well, Jay loves her so much that it makes my heart ache whenever she feel something about Rafe. Oh Rafe, I will always like him. He’s so mysterious and hot, that makes him more delightful. Wait, did I really use delightful? Haha! Anyway, I really admire him for what he did for Vi. And I hate Vi for not appreciating it. What he did changed everything. I really wish he will have his own happy ever after, and I like Chelsea for him. Rafe and Chelsea for the win! And Vi should stop feeling like her jealous, she should accept the fact that she’s not the only girl in the world. Haha!

I can’t wait for the next books, I don’t want this series to the end even though Vi becomes more frustrating as ever. I think I can still handle her. 😉

Summary from Goodreads:

“Marcus Hardy had hoped to enjoy a year away at college while he put the summer he’d rather forget behind him. But instead, he’s jerked right back to the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama due to a family crisis. His dear ol’ dad found himself a girlfriend only a few years older than Marcus. So now his sister needs help dealing with their mother who is mentally falling apart. The only bright spot to returning is the fascinating red head who sleeps over several times a week. The problem is she’s sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage York. 

Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. Juggling her courses at the local community college and a part time job doesn’t produce excess income. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at her best friend’s apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus Hardy’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there. 
Even though Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage may use his small college baseball star persona to sleep with every hot female in his path but he’s still under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low. Marcus intends to change that assumption for both Cage and Low. Until his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected. He’ll have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out…. there’s no other choice.”




Oh my, I love you Marcus!!! Wholeheartedly!

When I read the first pages, I was hooked right away! I didn’t remember that he’s Marcus, from the first book, Breathe. I fell in love with him there, but I think I love him more in this book. Well, it’s his own story! I love how the romance developed, such as the first encounter in the very beginning and their undeniable attraction with each other. Oh, how I love good guys, and Marcus is the best example. *swoons*

The first half of the book is really great! I always expect that from Abbi Glines. The second half is with a lot of conflicts. Though this book is very predictable, I can’t help but love it because of Marcus. He’s a good person, he’s the perfect son to her mom, a good brother to Amanda, a sweet guy to Low. And he’s a perfect gentleman! He also cooks for her. My favorite part is when he gave Low three different drinks and she asked why, and he said he said he’s not sure what she’d want. That’s very sweet of him, taking care of her and making her happy. And I like that Low appreciates him in every little things that he does.

My favorite line from Marcus:

“Listen to me. I’m in love with you. Mad crazy in love with you. I’m not going anywhere. Ever. You can’t get rid of me.”
