Blurb: She’s my roommate.

I know how she takes her tea, how she organizes her closet.

I know when she goes to bed each night, what she eats for breakfast, the passcode on her phone.

I know she calls her mother on Mondays, takes barre on Thursdays, and meets her friends for drinks on Fridays.

But more important than any of that … I know what she did.

 

Mr Sandman, Bring Me A Dream

*** I received this ARC in exchanged for an honest review. ***

So when I read the blurb, I was extremely curious as to what this was about. What happened? What DID The roommate do?  Was this like, I Know What You Did Last Summer ? I HAD to know. So as soon as I started reading this book, I was pulled in because it wasn’t what I thought it would be like at first. Nothing was suspicious, I mean NOTHING. So I was a little confused, but I carried on because I needed to know what happened next. 

Everything was completely normal. Even including one of the main characters being down on her luck in the beginning. So I read on to see where her life and luck would take her in this story…

I just knew something good would happen. I was so right! As the book went on things got weirder and weirder. At one point I wondered if I was in The Twilight Zone. Things weren’t making sense and had me questioning why the characters did that. Namely, that damn roommate! There are some bizarre things that happen that had me scratching my head, like whaaaa? I would not want a roommate like that FYI. I never felt so weirded out in my life.

Also the plot twists that happen in the book towards the end, I didn’t see coming, you guys. I felt like the rug was ripped out from under me and I fell on my ass. I looked around like, what the fuck just happened and how? It was jarring to say the least.  This book honestly reminded me of the book, The Girl On The Train and the movie, Single White Female along with its own twisted, mixed up ideas. 

I look forward to reading another book by Minka Kent because this one was extremely satisfying. Read at your own risk.

Blurb: 

Two years ago, his kiss left her reeling, but she pushed him away and they never spoke of it again.

Lena Andrews is bad at love, and has no intention of getting better at it.

Men are good for one thing, and love isn’t it.

She’s perfectly okay with finding happiness in her job as a comic book artist.

Yet, she can’t shake the memory of her coworker’s kiss.

Amos St. Clair has stayed the hell away from Lena Andrews for the last two years.

Work has filled his time and he’s on the cusp of making a name for himself. When an opportunity to complete a project that’s dear to Lena’s heart presents itself, Amos seizes the opportunity – even if it means being with the woman he’s avoided all this time.

Through their mutual passion for art and each other, their love blooms like a lotus flower out of a dark, muddy pool. But, is their love strong enough to withstand the challenges posed by the most important job of their careers?

Bad At Love

 

*** I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review. ***

I was so excited when I read about this because I love when books are about artists, let alone a comic book artist. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this. Once I started reading about Lena and Amos, I was so attached to them and their story that I would take my kindle anywhere just to keep reading about them. Then I would get angry when my kindle died and I was in a place where I couldn’t charge it back up to get back to their story. 

Which by the way had so much going on just in the plot and emotionally. I thought that I wouldn’t end up crying while reading this book, but I did. Lena struggles through heartache a lot in this book and I felt for her, hell I felt with her.

These trauma events that happened in her life have shaped the way she is. So yes, she avoids many, many things that could risk her heart because the poor girl has been through the ringer. She is very jaded, not afraid to share her opinion and get in your face. It is very hard not to love her as a character. 

She doesn’t know how to love anything else, but her job. So she’s bad at love, doesn’t mean she doesn’t try… things just tend to not go her way at first.  So she runs away.

I loved how the cultural aspects were brought into this book so well. It was almost like I was in Tokyo. I have never been outside of the U.S. so that was a very nice experience. With the sharings of history and about the restaurants, I really enjoyed that. The diversity was shown between each town/city they went to as well and the difference between the people that lived there. I found that fascinating, rivating even. 

Since this was my first book by Hilaria Alexander, I feel like she really outdid herself. I loved this book and thought the ideas that she came up with for her characters to draw in their comic books was great! I will MOST DEFINITELY be reading something by her again.

Hilaria Alexander never thought she’d be a writer one day. Reader? Yes. Book hoarder? You betcha. Then, she started reading romance – that’s when she felt the need to write a story. Unfortunately, she didn’t listen to her gut, and talked herself out of it A MILLION TIMES. She finally gave up a few years ago, when the urge to write was stronger than self-doubt. She loves funny, sexy romances wrapped with a huge happily-ever-after bow at the end. Her inbox is always open if you want to chat about one of her books.
