Synopsis: My name is Monica. I’m a singer born and raised in Los Angeles.
I’ve stopped dating. When I cut a record, or win a Grammy, maybe then I’ll be with someone, but every man in my past has done everything he could to make me submit myself to him, and it’s gotten in the way of my career. I won’t do it again.

But there’s Jonathan. He owns the high-rise hotel where I work, and he is gorgeous and charming. I refuse to fall in love with him, even though when he asks me to submit to him, I want nothing more.

My Review: The book series itself is set our like a tv series, what I mean by this is that Reiss will release each segment of the series every 4-6 weeks. Because of this, nothing really happened until the end, and it ends on the biggest cliff hanger I think I have ever read! I really hope I get to read the rest soon! *hint hint Reiss hint hint*

Synopsis: It’s no secret that body image dissatisfaction has reached epidemic levels, but what’s less often understood is the effect that these unhealthy views about one’s body can have on a person’s overall mental health, body image problems are often at the root of social anxiety . This book takes a unique approach to addressing readers’ struggles with their body image, as readers will not find the typical soothing arguments that their perceptions are wrong, and that their thoughts are irrational. Instead, readers learn to live with the reality that these often painful thoughts and beliefs about themselves will arise from time to time, and discover new ways of managing these thoughts without allowing them to dominate their lives. The assessments within, help readers to realize what body image difficulties have cost them and encourages them to choose a purpose for life that is more important. The book also includes a companion CD with guided audio mindfulness meditations and printable worksheets.

My Review: I really liked this book, being an absolute sucker for self help books especially in the new year (when I actually read and reviewed this book) it wasn’t really that hard to please me. BUT! Saying that, there were something’s that I loved, because they were different from normal self-help books. It starts with a few pages about a young girl called Hannah, someone you can relate to if you’re reading this book to try and better your body image.

It’s written like you’re on an equal level to the authors, that they’re not superior to the reader in any way, and I haven’t found that in many self-help books, but as the book mentions a lot, everybody has had body image problems  once in their life, and they’d be lying if they said they hadn’t.

It’s got a lot of breathing techniques, that I personally love. It tells you to write down things in the book worth thinking about, I’d write some of them down but I don’t want to ruin the book for you!;3

I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone who has ever had/has/or will have body image problems!

Synopsis: Kate’s dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and she’s still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school. Now he’s a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life. When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached. But could they be right for each other after all?

My Review: This book was so easy to read! I flew through it, the writing is so emotive and really makes you connect with both Aidan and Kate. I wish it didn’t end! I am hoping and praying that Jolene Perry is planning some kind of a sequel/spin off because I just want to read more!

I am most absolutely, positively, recommending this to everyone!

Elevator Heat – Review

Title: Elevator Heat

Author: B.D Rowe

Genre: Romsnce

Price: £2.99

Pages: 100ish

Publish Date: 17th December 2013

Rating:  8.5/10

Synopsis: 

Twenty-year-old Maddie has had a crush on Colin, her studly internship supervisor, for three long months. She struggles focusing on her work, and always finds herself gazing at his wavy brown hair, his chiseled cheekbones, his kissable lips. Little does she know, however, that he has feelings for her, too.

The problem is no matter how much time they spend together in the office, neither one can ever make the first move.
That is, until they both step into the old, rickety elevator late one Friday night.

And things start to get a little steamy…

My Review:  AHHHH you know when a book really gets to you? A book that you absolutely love? THIS IS ONE OF THEM.

The characters are believable, Colin is such a good guy and you fall for him, hard. I sometimes find sex scenes really cringey with the terminology used, but this really wasn’t.

I love the way it’s written, swapping from point of views, it makes it more interesting than normal romance book I read.

I really hope this isn’t a one off as I really want to read more!

I’m on my way to tell EVERYONE about this book, it’s one of those books that are so good you just want everyone to read!

Window by Michele Renae – Review

My Review; I LOVED this book, so different from the erotica norm. Can’t wait to read Screen, the second in the series coming out in winter 2014!

Ew, its literally a one line review but I have an exam today (english) and this should really the last thing I should be doing at 12 am! (it just shows you how good this book is! )
