Adaline Frost’s life officially sucks. Now that her BFF has found her true love, Addy is constantly stuck being the third wheel. On top of that, she hasn’t started her junior project yet, so her advisor pairs her up with what could only be described as the “Reject Breakfast Club.” Instead of the weirdo and the troublemaker, Addy is forced to work with two stoners, a popular girl, and her crush, Austin Reed, the jock who broke her heart.

Austin Reed is sick of being labeled “dumb jock.” If he doesn’t get an A on this project, he can kiss his future goodbye. Austin thought he’d gotten lucky being partners with the very nerdy Adaline Frost, but boy was he wrong. Addy jumps down his throat about his being late and calls him names like “manwhore” on the daily. She has no idea Austin works before and after school in order to help his mom with the bills. Yeah, he’s made mistakes and has had lots of girlfriends, but he doesn’t need Adaline Frost to remind him of it every time he sees her.

Can Austin and Addy ever be a thing?

Right Girl Wrong Timing is book 3 in the Offsides series by Natalie Decker.





I’m about to go forward and talk to her, but I divert from that plan as soon as I see Greg stepping up next to her. He’s blocking her from my view with his douchiness.

She said they weren’t dating at the dance. That was weeks ago, so why the hell is he still hanging around her? Why are his fingers clasping wisps of her hair? He shouldn’t be touching her.

This feeling is not sitting right with me at all. Fact is, I’ve never been jealous. Have I been a little envious of the people who go here recently? Maybe. I mean, a few months ago I used to be just like them. New clothes, shoes, going to parties, not having a care in the world. Then my mom lost her awesome job at the hospital due to cuts, Dad left, and shit just went downhill. Now, I have to make sure my mom and I don’t get kicked out of the dump we live in or have anything shut off because of the lack of funds. I’ve never been jealous of a guy dating a girl I was interested in, though. Until Adaline, and I swear this is going to be a problem. It’s already cost me my childhood home. I can’t afford to lose any more.

My fingernails dig into my palm as my hands ball into fists at my sides while I watch Adaline tip back her head and laugh. I need to get a grip. I’m losing it. This shouldn’t bother me. In fact, I shouldn’t even give a shit that they’re hanging out. Adaline and I can’t be anything.

ARC Review – Apocalypse Five by Stacey Rourke


Hello Lovelies!!! Today, I have my review for this fun sci-fi dystopian adventure. Apocalypse Five by Stacey Rourke is the first book in the Archives of the Five series and it was such wonderful and entertaining read.



Published: February 12th 2019

Published by: Black Spot Books

Genre(s): Young Adult, Sci-fi, Dystopian

Pages: Kindle Edition 250


The end of the world is coming. How or when, scientists can’t agree upon. For decades, Earth’s best line of defense has been a team of young soldiers known as the Apocalypse Five, forced into virtual reality simulations to train for Doom’s Day. But, this is no game. Death on the grid is brutally final and calls up the next in a long line of cadets. Stationed aboard the AT-1-NS Starship, the A5 are celebrities thrust into the limelight by a calling they didn’t choose. All it takes is one unscheduled mission, showing seventeen-year-old team leader Detroit a harsh and unfathomable reality, to shake the A5’s belief in all they thought they knew. After questioning people with the power to destroy them, the team is framed for a crime they didn’t commit and marked for death. Now, the hunt is on. Can the Apocalypse Five expose the truth the starship would kill to keep hidden? Or, will their bravery end in a public execution?






Stacey Rourke created such a fascinating sci-fi dystopian story. It was an absolutely thrilling and addictive read that left me wanting MORE!

Brimmed with plenty of action, suspense, drama, humor, and twists, Apocalypse Five had me completely captivated and I loved it. Rourke’s writing was amazingly vivid and so wonderfully engaging that I felt like I was present in the moment experiencing all the thrill. Even though the story seemed familiar to other dystopian books I’ve read, I thought the author’s ideas were imaginative and different enough that I felt like I was embarking on an excitingly unique space adventure. The storyline was fantastic and perfectly fast-paced. I was thrown into all the action and intrigue from the first page and it did not stop until that awesome ending.

I absolutely adored the Apocalypse Five! I thought Rourke created such wonderful, charming, and interesting characters. They were teenagers, far from perfect and had their own insecurities, but they were passionately determined, fiercely loyal to each other, and willing to fight for the good. They each had their own strengths, weaknesses, and quirks that made them seem real to me. I loved getting to know them and seeing each of them grow into the kind of heroes that could spark new beginnings and inspire others to fight for justice.

The side characters and the villains were interesting too. I really did like the characters and thought they were all well-developed. But, if I had to pick a favorite, I’d have to go with Augusta. He was pretty funny and I liked his character growth the most.

Apocalypse Five by Stacey Rourke was a wonderfully crafted sci-fi adventure that will thrill, mesmerize and entertain you until the very last page. The storytelling was amazing and the world-building was creative. I thoroughly enjoyed the intense fight scenes, the heart-pounding moments, the surprises and revelations, the lovable characters, and even the romance. It was fabulous, electrifying and immersive! I’m totally looking forward for whatever comes next and hanging out with the Rogue Five.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts, opinions, and experiences are my own. divider4
