REVIEW - Unexpected Love - Evan Grace




TITLE - Unexpected Love (Love Stings #4)
AUTHOR - Evan Grace







BLURB:



It was supposed to be a one-time thing. Just one night. No attachments, no strings, and no expectations. Little did Chloe know it would change her life forever.


In hindsight, that night with Joe never should have happened. But it did.
He was one mistake she never should have made. But she did. 

Now Chloe is in way too deep, stuck in a very complicated situation which seems impossible to get out of.

Too bad she can’t change the past. If she could do it all over again, she wouldn’t be so reckless, so weak. She wouldn’t succumb to temptation so easily…

Or would she?




REVIEW:

**This review contains a spoiler as a trigger warning. If you wish to not read further, stop here**


“Heartache and love, 5 stars”


Unexpected Love is the fourth book in the series, you’ve already met this stories couple before they were together. Going into this story I already liked Joe and Chloe but I didn’t know if I would like them together, but once again Grace shocked me and proved they were right for each other. Both Joe and Chloe are fun easy-going people but they experience heartache.

*SPOILER*So here is my warning label: if you can’t handle miscarriages, I don’t recommend this story. If it’s hard but you are willing to take a chance, please do so. Unexpected Love is a fantastic story that may help one heal or help one understand.*SPOILER*

Chloe hasn’t been with anyone for quite some time. The last guy may have taken a kick at her self- esteem. When she has the opportunity to sleep with Joe she takes it. Only problem is she’s seven years his senior, how could a one-night stand turn into something more when she’s so much older?

Joe is living his life like most twenty-four-year-old guys, he’s having fun. Once he hooks up with Chloe though she’s the only one he can think about. When Chloe shows up at his door telling him she’s pregnant, Joe is equal parts excited and terrified. When Chloe loses the baby both hurt, but at the same time it pulls them closer together.

Joe and Chloe have an uphill battle to fight to make it together. Unexpected Love is equal parts light and serious. You get a little bit of previous characters you might have fallen for and learn more about ones you hardly know. I love Chloe’s brother and can’t wait for his story. Take a journey with Joe and Chloe and unexpectedly fall in love.

Title: The Bars Between Us

Author: A.S. Teague

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About The Bars Between Us:

I don’t have a damn thing in common with the beautiful rich girl who walks in to my bar. She’s southern class, fancy cars, and designer shoes.

I’ve got a drunk for a mother, a cheater for a father, and a reputation for trouble I’ve more than earned.

I look the other way, pretending I don’t notice how perfect she is. She wouldn’t give me the time of day anyway. Until she shatters that first impression and shows me she’s so much more––everything I never thought I deserved.

After a lifetime of being a disappointment, I want to prove to her that I’m better than my past.

We have one tragic thing in common, and the thread that binds us together will tear us apart as it unravels.

Are we strong enough to break through the Bars Between Us?


 OUR REVIEW:

“Lies exposed, 3 stars”

Grace is finally starting her life as an adult after graduating college. Her childhood was rocky, but she got through the heartache with her head held high. Grace was taught to be the proper southern woman when she feels anything but. When her first job assignment takes her to a small town along the coast she’s thrilled and little does she know it's where she will find love.

Bronn has always had a troubled life since birth. According to the townspeople, it doesn’t matter how good he actually is, sins of a parent and all that jazz. When a sassy woman in pearls sits down at his bar, his life is tossed upside down. She’s everything he’s not and it makes him want her more. Bronn has to learn how to navigate a relationship with Grace and when things start to look up it all comes crashing down when they find out their pasts are connected.

I liked the plot of The Bars Between, but for me some parts were slow and I couldn’t really get into it. I don’t know if it was me or if it was the book but I couldn’t get lost with these two.

Here are two quotes though that I liked from The Bars Between;

“She was the ocean, wild and free, with a depth that I couldn’t fathom, full of mysteries that may never be solved.”

“And if there was anything that I knew, it was that life, and love especially, was never easy.”

Release Boost - Getting a Grip - M.E. Carter






Title: Getting A Grip

A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 18, 2017





Blurb


This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life,
but not the way I envisioned it would be.

I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I
turned the big 4-0.  Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left
over baby belly.  What I didn’t expect was expanding our family
get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride.  Ok, ok, she’s not
young.  Maybe.

Did I mention this is not the life I planned?

It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother
who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by
the name of Greg, who is apparently a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are
pretty.

Sigh… Greg.

The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting
with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really
know.

Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with
make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back
some control.

So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m
going to learn how to get a grip on my life.  And maybe my heart.

Author Bio




Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out
to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into
her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled.
With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with
her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long
after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy
because of it.
