Riptide (Rock Stars, Surf and Second Chances, #2)

Review: Riptide - Book #2 Rock Stars, Surf and Second Chances Series - Michelle Mankin - February 2017

What do you get when a favorite author brings together three of your favorite things in one book? An awesome story, that's what. When I saw that Riptide had been released, I knew I had to read it as I love everything by Michelle Mankin.  Rock stars - I love music when it comes to books and if I could play any instrument, I had always fancied either the drums or bass/electric guitar. Surf - again if I had been brought up by water, then I think I would have loved to be a surfer as out in the waves you have that feeling of freedom and last but not least Second Chance romances - this is what I am truly a sucker for. I do enjoy instant love romances, but nothing beats the happiness of second chance romances, those where both parties finally realize they are meant to be together despite all the obstacles that are thrown in their ways. Riptide is split into two parts, but technically it's three.  Patch has died and now his widow Karen is back in their hometown working at the Surf shop, she still teaches surfing but her heart is still raw, and it pains her to be near the pier as it was their spot. Ramon Martinez had returned after taking a break from music as everything fell apart when Patch - his best friend died. Ramon had always loved Karen but had moved aside when Patch claimed her as his girl, there were moments he wanted her, but he waited. Now Patch has gone the pair can move on slowly. I had loved how the pair were finally making a go of things, and they were looking up and then OMFG out of nowhere tragedy hits. I was like WTF Nooooooooo !!! this can't be the end as they are just making things work. I was like what an evil thing to do. The book then jumps to the past where Karen first met Ramon and Patch and leads up to the day Patch died. Then the last part gives the reader the questioning of whether Ramon and Karen will finally get their HEA or are they destined to have love lost? Is this a second chance romance destined to work after all the tragic moments or will this be one of those loves where you know they are meant to be together but for some reason - they can never be. 
 Riptide played with my emotions especially in the middle of the book, and as my partner can confirm I was like NOOOOOOOOOO this can't be happening, the book isn't supposed to go like this LOL.
 If you are like me and love your sand, surf, rock stars and second chance romances, then pick up your copy of Riptide today.
P.S - the other thing I loved about this book was the crossovers of the two record companies which we have seen in Michelle Mankin's previous book and other series. 

Review: Carnival of Dead Girls - Carissa Ann Lynch

Carnival of Dead Girls (Flocksdale Files, #3) 

Review: Carnival of Dead Girls - Book #3 Flocksdale Files - Carissa Ann Lynch - January 2016

First off I have to let readers know that I had loved all the books previous to this one by Carissa Ann Lynch, so I had high expectations when I discovered that there was a new one in the Flocksdale Series. However, I found myself slightly disappointed with Carnival of Dead Girls as I found the story to be too fragmented for my liking.  The story started off with us being introduced to Josie Crowley, who is sixteen and living in a town not far from Flocksdale. She wants to fit in somewhere and is befriended by a girl named Freya. Turns out though that Freya isn't exactly the type of person that Josie thought she was and when a circus comes to town. Freya disses Josie and runs off. Next thing we know Freya is missing and Josie knows it has something to do with the Circus. This part made her seem too clingy and needy for my part as Josie goes on a search to find Freya and it leads her to the town of Flocksdale. Remember Flocksdale - home of the Garretts, who liked to kill and traffic girls. Well, it seems that there are still members of the Garrett family around and they haven't given up their bad ways, in fact, they will do anything to keep the Garrett name alive including drawing Josie to Flocksdale. What is Josie's connection to the Garrett family and what has happened to Freya? One of the small parts I enjoyed about this book was the re-introduction of Wendy from the earlier books. Carnival of Dead Girls was a good thriller despite its disjointedness and a good read for those wanting to continue The Flocksdale Files series.

That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

Booty Camp Dating Service

Review: Booty Camp Dating Service - Debra Anastasia - August 2016

I have a few of this author sitting on my kindle, but I had yet to read any of her books, apparently though scouring Goodreads people have said that she is crass and her books are filled with LOL moments. As a big fan of romantic comedies, I was intrigued and also the title of this book was what mainly drew me in. Hazel seems always to pick the wrong guys to fall in love with, and they never stick, so when her best friend Claire tells her about a service - Booty Camp Dating Service where everyone who attends gets the perfect match, and since she isn't getting any younger, Hazel reluctantly goes along. During the initial meeting, Claire has found her soulmate in the co-owner of the company, but for Hazel, she seems to have her doubts in especially the main owner Wolf Saber. He just rubs her up the wrong way. Hazel demands her money back but since she paid by cheque is told she can't and then becomes a negotiation novel and compromising back and forth between Hazel and Wolf. As the book goes on and Hazel has a bad date after bad date, we wonder if there will be any HEA for her but turns out that someone does have sizzling chemistry with Hazel - Wolf himself, their chemistry is off the charts. Can Wolf get Hazel to see him as a potential match or will it be a disaster from the get-go as of course first impressions count, and neither one have great first impressions of the other?
Booty Camp Dating Service was a quick read and if you want a look into the world of matches and speed-dating along with a barrel of laughs then check out Debra Anastasia's book as it will be one you won't be able to put down.
