ARC REVIEW: Full Share by Eliza Freed

Full Share

Title: Full Share
Author: Eliza Freed
Publication Date: June 21st 2016
Publisher: Brunswick House
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Rating: 5 Stars
Nora Hargrove’s post-grad life includes a horrific entry-level job, a cave of an apartment, and a strict avoidance of all interpersonal relationships. She knows only one thing about herself—she wants to be left alone.
Avoiding her mother’s forced family time, she seeks solitude on her own terms. In a poorly ventilated, overcrowded Dewey Beach rental, she discovers there’s no place to hide. Not from yourself, not from your life, and not from love. This is the story of Nora Hargrove’s full share.
I learned the healing power of a good bloody Mary and a dip in the Atlantic. I kayaked in the dead of night and witnessed the only shooting star I’ve ever seen. I fell in love on a bed made of pallets. I lived.
Life is deep. Dive in.

REVIEW: Behind The Hands That Kill by J.A. Redmerski (In The Company of Killers #6)

Behind The Hands That Kill

Title: Behind The Hands That Kill
Series: In The Company of Killers #6
Author: J.A. Redmerski
Publication Date: May 7th 2016
Genre: Adult, Crime, Thriller, Suspense, Romance, Dark
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Even professional killers need vacations, but for Victor Faust, his vacation in Venezuela is about more than relaxation and time alone with Izabel Seyfried. It is a chance for him to come clean to Izabel: to tell her the truth about why he sent her to Italy with his brother, the truth behind his interest in Nora Kessler, and about his knowledge of Izabel’s child with her former captor. But before Victor can spill his soul, reality proves that for some killers, vacations are just pipe-dreams.
Attacked and kidnapped, Izabel finds herself stuffed in a suitcase, while Victor later wakes up imprisoned in a cage. In any other situation, Victor would find a way out and save himself and the woman he loves—but not this time. When the identities of their kidnappers are revealed, Victor loses all hope, and begins the mental process of accepting his and Izabel’s last moments together. And Izabel’s final moments of life.
As if his circumstances are not complicated enough, members of Vonnegut’s Order are finally closing in on Victor. And when they do, he comes face-to-face with someone else he once knew and loved, who could either help him, or make a grave situation much worse. Victor’s past has finally caught up with him: the women he has cared for, loved, and killed; the families he has destroyed; the unforgivable crimes he has committed. And now he must face the consequences, and pay the ultimate price for absolution.
But when it is all over, Victor may not have the strength to pick up what is left and move on. Because the event changes him. Because love changed him. And because, unlike before when he thought it is was for the best, he cannot imagine a life without Izabel in it.

MAY & JUNE: Exam months

Hey guys!

It's me, June, again!

So I just wanted to write a short post explaining a few things that will be happening in the next two months of my leftover secondary school life.

So, obviously, it's exam month, and of course, I'll be taking exams as well because you know, I need to pass them to get into college/6th form and then pass their exams to get into university and then pass that to get a good paying job and you know, just all of that jazz :D

So, by me taking my exams and (trying to) pass them, I won't be able to post much on here because I will be using my time to revise and such. This is probably why I didn't post an April wrap-up or a May TBR at the start of this month, because ultimately, my exams has already started.

I've completed two out of my twelve GCSE courses (3 out of 23 exams done! 20 more to go!) and that was all in the past week. I've got one week of no exams and then it all starts again next week, meaning I only have this week to post all of the things I want and have the free time to read pleasurably. 

But anyway, so starting from next week onwards, I will be stuck in exam mode and so if you don't see me posting in a long while, that will be the reason :D I hope you stick along though, because by late June, my exams will be done and I won't ever have to read the word GCSE again! And of course, free reading time!

But yeah, this is it. I might try to post some reviews and such along the way, but that depends on how much reading I get done during revision. I've got one blog tour coming up beginning of June but I'm trying to squeeze that in and schedule it as soon as possible so that it won't get in the way of my studying. 

So anyway, that was all I wanted to update you guys on! And hey, if you guys are interested, I'm doing Psychology, Sociology, English Lang & Lit and Maths for college :) Just if you're interested aha.

I will see you guys sometime soon! :D

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY: Settling The Score by R.S. Grey (The Summer Games #1)

Publication Date: May 2nd 2016
Genre: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, Sports & Games
From the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Scoring Wilder, comes a sexy new standalone novel.As an Olympic rookie, Andie Foster has spent far more time in her cleats than between the sheets. For 21 years, her Friday nights have consisted of blocking shots rather than taking them. But now that she's landed in Rio, she's ready to see for herself if the rumors about the Olympic Village are true:
• The athletes are all sex-crazed maniacs...
• The committee passes out condoms like candy...
• The games continue long after the medals have been handed out...
As Andie walks the line between rumor and reality, she's forced into the path of Frederick Archibald, a decorated Olympic swimmer and owner of a sexy British accent--too bad he's unavailable in a way that "it's complicated" doesn't even begin to explain.
In other words: off limits.It doesn't matter that he has abs that could bring peace to the Middle East and a smile that makes even the Queen blush; Andie fully intends on keeping her focus on the soccer field. But the Village is small. Suffocating. Everywhere Andie goes, Freddie happens to be there--shirtless, wet from the pool, and determined to show her a whole new meaning of the phrase "international affairs".
Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Publication Date: May 9th 2016
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Rating: 5 Stars
It’s senior year at Pacific State University and all-night parties, cheap hookups and regrets are the ruling pastimes.

Now she’s a walking trail of vodka-soaked destruction, something her sexy, smooth-talking coworker Davis won’t let her forget. He might have a secret crush on her—but his playboy reputation would never let him admit it. His best friend Blake’s own love of all-nighters and debauchery comes crashing to a halt when a one-night stand backfires. Level-headed Cassie seems like she’s the one who has it all together, but she’s just better at hiding her skeletons.
Ungracefully pirouetting in and out of love triangles, drug addictions and unwanted pregnancies, four friends stumble their way through their last year of study and try to grasp the realities of the world on the other side.
