Blog Tour: The Best Goodbye by Abbi Glines - Review + Giveaway!


After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.

Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh…something strange about the way she looks at Captain…

I absolutely loved Captain from the moment I met him on the boat when he met Blaire. When I heard he was getting his own book, I couldn’t wait!

Rose was such a sweetheart. I loved her and thought she was super loving, especially to her daughter. She was a wonderful mom. She was hard-working and did everything in the best interest of her daughter. Speaking of her daughter, she was the most precious thing on earth. Loved Franny! :)

Captain/River was equally as great. He did not let any women get close to him ever, so Rose was super different. I liked how he was around Franny and how protective he was of Rose. He also was mega sexy and successful, which is always a really great attribute.

WHEN IS NAN’S BOOK COMING OUT!? I know I ask this question every time I read an Abbi Glines book, but seriously I can’t wait. I love to read about villains getting redeemed.

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: His other hand slid into my hair and cupped the back of my head while he kissed his way up my neck, stopping to give me small licks where my pulse beat furiously. He pressed his tongue against one small point and groaned.

Blog Tour: Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan - Review + Giveaway!


Mirror, mirror ... who's the fairest of them all? I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn't grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all 'mean girls.' And those mean girls were right - it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world - and I knew the answer would never be me. The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests. The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward. Well, that's definitely not Willow Tate. No. That will never be me. Because I'm completely imperfect. And ... I hate myself. I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

As soon as I heard about this book and read the synopsis, I knew I had to have it. Ai have really enjoyed Harper’s other books and I was totally blown away by this new standalone.

Willow was completely amazing. Who she was at the beginning of the book was completely different than who she was at the end of the book. She had so much confidence in herself and she knew how amazing she had always been. I am so happy that she was able to overcome everything the horrible people in her life had always told her. I really looked up to her and she was an inspiration to me.

Kane…oh my goodness Kane. I absolutely adored him. I loved how he gave strength to Willow when she needed it the most. He showed her everything that had been hidden within her, things that he had always known. He was so totally swoon-worthy and uggghhh sexy as mess. Definite new book boyfriend.

The plot was simple but perfect. I totally gravitated to it and adored it. The supporting characters were hilarious – Eddie and Kirby were the bestest of friends to Willow. And the romance – hot hot hot! They were absolutely perfect for each other.

As you can see, I totally loved this book – cover to cover. I love it as a standalone, but of course I would always be open to some Willow and Kane in the future. ;)

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: She gasps, and I use that to my advantage, dipping my tongue into her mouth and caressing against hers. Fuck, her taste is just as addictive as the rest of her. Her scent wraps around me, and just like that, I’m a starved man feasting like it’s the first meal I’ve had in years.

About the Author:
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

This book was received by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I should just expect that a Colleen Hoover book will end with me in tears, cursing Colleen. I mean it happens with all of her books that I have read. They are immensely powerful and beautifully written.

Fallon – loved her. She was so strong and I loved how she did what she needed to do instead of leaning on a guy to fix her problems, like so many heroines these day do. She was shy at first but I liked that she eventually spread her wings and was more comfortable around people.

Ben. Ben, Ben, Ben. Benton James freakin’ Kessler. Loved him too. He was so damn cute at the beginning, being only 18 years old. He’s an aspiring writer and so cute and so funny. He had only the best of intentions regarding Fallon and I really understood him.      

I just knew tragic things were going to happen and I couldn’t stop it. I assumed the crash landing position, not exactly knowing what was going to happen, but I just knew something would. I mean, it’s Colleen Hoover. Of course something would happen.

I liked how the book progresses, Ben and Fallon meeting only one day a year, on November 9th. It was definitely something special, something that only Colleen can pull off, something like she does in her other books to. Always something special.

I can’t wait to figure out the synopsis of Colleen’s next book. Maybe this one won’t end with me in a puddle of tears. But not likely.
