Working with her best friend’s brother at Betty’s Burgers, free-spirited Delia starts to see Jack in a new light. Not only has Jack-the-Jerk turned into a hottie, he’s even acting like a nice guy, who rescues dogs and knows how she likes her coffee. But if Jack is into her, then why is he keeping her a secret? Of course, if her best friend doesn’t approve, Delia could lose the only family she’s ever known.
Seeing Delia in her retro waitress uniform throws Jack’s world out of whack. She’s always been just another pain in the butt little sister…not a datable female. But she’s rockin’ the Pie Princess tiara, and even her hot-pink striped hair is sexy. What’s that about? He needs to get his head on straight, because artsy, funky Delia and her nonconformist ways don’t fit in his safe and ordered world.

I love reading Entangled Teen (Crush) books. They’re fun, adorable, and easy to read. This book sounded very cute and fluffy, so of course I had to request for it. Plus the cover immediately gave me swoony feels.

The plot was fast-paced and humorous. I had a few laughs here and there and loved it. However, there were some parts that just irked me. There’s some drama too, but it just didn’t work for me. Oh, but there were a lot of entertaining moments with dogs. And I love dogs… so I really enjoyed those parts.

The characters were decent and somewhat relatable. I really liked Delia. She’s confident, artistic and not afraid to stand out. She’s definitely my favorite. Not sure how I feel about Jack. He’s guarded, incredibly moody, and a bit of a jerk sometimes. I know he had valid reasons, but I just couldn’t feel for him. Trevor was so funny and I liked him a lot. He kept the story interesting and fun. I didn’t care much for Aidan or Zoe. Actually, Aidan annoyed me. I see why he acted the way he did, but I just couldn’t connect with him.

I liked Delia and Jack together, but I wasn’t crazily swooning over them. I thought their chemistry was a bit lacking and missing all the feels. I just wanted more oomph, more build-up, more intensity… just more FEELS. Nevertheless, I thought the romance was still cute and enjoyable. There were a few sweet moments between them that I really liked. They also brought out the good in each other and I liked that about them too.

Overall, Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon is a quick, entertaining, and cute read. Even though this isn’t my favorite Entangled Teen (Crush) book and I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would, I still enjoyed it and had fun. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a nice YA contemporary that can be finished in a day or so.

I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

September Wrap Up

September for me was not that great in terms of reading. I kind of had a reading slump and once that was over, I got sick. I didn’t get to read everything I wanted and fell so behind on my Netgalley TBR. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed right now, but I’m just trying to take it day by day. Oh and I’m also on a book buy/request ban until I finish at least 3/4 of the books I have to read and review.

Without further ado, here are the books I got through in September. I actually really loved almost everything I read.

To read my full review, just click the title of the book

 

Summoner by S.D. Grimm

★★★★ 1/2  – FANTASTIC HEARTWRENCHING YA PARANORMAL ROMANCE

IMG_3610

I really wasn’t expecting this to be deeply affecting or heartbreaking, but that’s what makes this story brilliant and so powerful. And yes… I absolutely recommend that everyone pick this up!

This Body Won’t Break by Lea Mckee

 ★★★★★ – THRILLING YA DYSTOPIA

IMG_6865

This Body Won’t Break by Lea Mckee is phenomenal and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would. Mckee’s writing is gorgeous and atmospheric. It doesn’t take long before the mystery, intrigue, and tension had me completely hooked. I honestly could not stop reading and became more and more anxious by the minute… and I TOTALLY LOVED IT!

Kalifus Rising by Alane Adams

★★★★★ – A MARVELOUS AND MAGICAL ADVENTURE

IMG_6910

Alane Adams definitely amps up the adventure, the thrills, the twists, the humor and really everything else. Her writing is beautiful, vivid, and incredibly imaginative. Once again, I found myself being carried away into this magical world. Kalifus Rising is without a doubt one of the best sequels I’ve ever read. I love the characters, the mystery, the adventure, and everything else in between.

 

The Raven God by Alane Adams

★★★★★ – FANTASTIC CONCLUSION

IMG_E3742

I’m really going to miss Orkney. This was the perfect conclusion to a fantastic Middle Grade Fantasy. I’ll have my review up really soon. Been falling behind on a lot since I got sick.

Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

★★★★ – CUTE FUN TEEN ROMANCE

This was a cute and quick read. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would, but it was still fun. Full review to come.

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

★★★★ 1/2 – DARK THRILLING PARANORMAL ROMANCE

IMG_3701

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel is a wonderful debut novel that reminded me of the reasons why I love paranormal romances. It’s deliciously dark, satisfyingly eerie, and absolutely enthralling. Kassel’s writing is beautiful and utterly captivating. I really liked the premise of the story and the spooky atmosphere. There are so many things I love about this book and I honestly can’t recommend it enough. While this book is perfect for paranormal romance lovers, I definitely think anyone looking for a fun thrilling read would enjoy this too.

Northwoods Magic by Desiree Lafawn

 ★★★★★ – FANTASTIC PARANORMAL ROMANCE

IMG_7210

Northwoods Magic by Desiree Lafawn will leave you spellbound for days and eagerly anticipating the next installment. Lafawn’s writing is enchanting and easy to read. The world building is well-developed and fascinated me. The story is engaging and full of intrigue. It has the perfect balance of magic, mystery, angst, humor, and romance. I’m absolutely looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Reading Slump and getting sick in the same month is the worst! I’m so behind on my reading, reviews, and postings. I feel so meeeh and blahhhh about it. And today is such a downer too, but I really don’t want to talk about it. It’s just a really sad…

Anyway, how did you do with your September TBR? What were some of your favorite books? Let me know in the comments down below!

Take care!!
