My whole world changed when I stepped inside the academy. Nothing is right about this place or the other students in it. Here I am, a mere mortal among gods…or monsters. I still can’t decide which of these warring factions I belong to, if I belong at all. I only know the one thing that unites them is their hatred of me.

Then there’s Jaxon Vega. A vampire with deadly secrets who hasn’t felt anything for a hundred years. But there’s something about him that calls to me, something broken in him that somehow fits with what’s broken in me.

Which could spell death for us all.

Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason. And now someone wants to wake a sleeping monster, and I’m wondering if I was brought here intentionally—as the bait.





A Dark, Thrilling and Deliciously Swoony Paranormal Romance


Tracy Wolff has created a deliciously dark, satisfyingly fun, and utterly fascinating supernatural world that sucked me in from the very first page and left my heart bleeding. Crave is filled with humor, thrills, swoons, and plenty of feels and I loved it all. Oh and this book has not only vampires, witches, and werewolves, but dragons too!! So, yes cravings quite satisfied, but I am absolutely and undeniably thirsty for more!

I feel like every paranormal vampire romance book I read is a little similar to Twilight, so if you’re not into that, then you might not like Crave very much.  This book is not flawless and there are definitely some things I wish happened sooner rather than later to make the story even more interesting. So yes, this book wasn’t perfect, but was it fun? Yasss! Did it keep me up late at night? Totally! Did it make me laugh, swoon, and feel? Absolutely! Twilight wasn’t really perfect either and I was completely addicted and would be for years. And after reading Crave, there is no doubt in my mind that I have a new obsession and a book vampire boyfriend to swoon over and over.


I love the world-building in this book and was utterly mesmerized by everything and wanted to know more. I love the details and descriptions of the breathtaking scenery, exploring the gorgeous castle, and just being immersed in this terrifying, but fascinating world. Wolff definitely adds her own creative and intriguing ideas and I really enjoyed them. The pacing is slow at times, but for the most part, the plot moves along quite smoothly. There’s humor, drama, mystery, suspense, and romance. It’s definitely quite thrilling that I was holding my breath a few times and felt my heart beating fast. This book is wicked, intense, surprising, and twisty in the best way and I loved it! Wolff definitely kept me guessing about a few things and though I had a bad feeling about one thing, I was never quite sure and I loved just never knowing how the story would go. The ending caught me off guard and now my heart is broken, but also I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I adore the characters and thought they were all interesting. Grace is definitely a strong, sassy, and likable heroine you’ll root for and Jaxon is the perfectly broody and sexy vampire you won’t be able to resist. I obviously enjoyed the romance and even though it’s totally cheesy at times, I loved the chemistry between Grace and Jaxon. I also really like Macy and enjoyed seeing her and Grace bond and get to know each other. I like that there’s playful bantering and some heartwarming moments between the characters.

With heart-pounding suspense, fascinating characters, twists and turns, and a swoony romance, Crave by Tracy Wolff had me gripping the edge of my seat and engrossed until the last page. I love world-building, the storyline, the paranormal aspects, the thrills, and the lighthearted moments sprinkled here and there.  I honestly can’t recommend this book enough and I think it’s a must read for fantasy, paranormal, and romance lovers. So grab your copy of Crave and get ready to have a bloody fangtastic time!

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the author and publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review and for participating in a Blog Tour hosted by The Fantastic Flying Book Club (FFBC). I also received free hardcover copy of the book for joining the Bookstragram Tour also hosted by FFCC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—in second grade, around the same time she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. A one-time English professor with over fifty novels to her name, she now devotes most of her time to writing romance and dreaming up heroes. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her family.






Thanks for stopping by sweeties! Hope you enjoyed this post and don’t forget to add this book on your TBR and follow the rest of the tour.

Have a wonderful day lovelies. Take care, stay home, and stay safe.

Star lacrosse player Alex “Kov” Koviak has it all. Or so everyone thinks. He’s real good at pretending his life is perfect…until he meets Bailey. The girl challenges him and pushes him and makes him laugh like he’s never laughed before. Their friendship is their little secret, and he’s happy to keep her to himself.

Between school, two jobs, and trying to get into NYU film school, Bailey Banfield has zero time for a social life. But then she meets Alex in her express lane at the grocery store, and their secret friendship becomes the only place she can breathe. She refuses to complicate that with more. No matter how charming Alex can be.

When Bailey decides to film outrageous promposals for her NYU application, she enlists Alex’s help to plan an over-the-top, epic promposal to someone else. Too bad the only prom date Alex wants anywhere near Bailey is him.

For a guy who seems to have it all, he’s about to lose the only thing he’s ever wanted.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Crush contains a cocky lacrosse player in over his head with his secret best friend, unexpected midnight kisses, swoon-worthy slow dancing, and movie-night cuddling that’ll make you ache. You’re going to want an Alex of your own!



mythoughts.pngAn Entertainingly Cute and Adorable Best Friends to Lovers YA Romance

4hearts2 (1)

I love reading light and fluffy teen romances and Entangled Teen Crush books never fail to win me over. They’re delightfully adorable, swoony, and just really fun to read. Love and Other Secrets was no exception and certainly had me feeling the FEELS.

I enjoyed Christina Mandelski’s “The First Kiss Hypothesis,” so I was really excited when I read the blurb for Love and Other Secrets. With promposals, stolen kisses, slow dancing, and cuddling with your secret best friend, I couldn’t wait for the swoons, butterflies, and heart melting moments. There were definitely many of those, but what I liked the most about this book was the nostalgic feeling I got while reading — going through all the emotions, heartbreaks, and confusion as a teenager dealing with falling in love for the first time was bittersweet and relatable.

Let me back track for a second. I actually requested for this book (because of the synopsis) and was also invited to review it. I also joined a blog tour, but unfortunately had to back out cause of something personal that happened. I don’t want to get into details about why I took a hiatus, but Love and Other Secrets was a lovely pick-me-upper. I wasn’t in the mood for anything too heavy or serious so this book was exactly what I needed to get back into reading. I just wanted a nice little fun escape to make me feel happy… and this book did that. It was a wonderfully cute and entertaining friends to lovers story that made me smile, laugh and aww. And when a book does that, well, that book’s pretty much a big YASSS for me.

Now let me get into what else I liked about this book. The writing style was easy to read so I breezed through this fairly quick. Both the POVs were really great too, but I definitely had more fun getting into Alex’s head… even though I did want to slap him a few times. The storyline was enjoyable with plenty of sweet surprises. I thought Alex and Bailey were likable, charming, and just so adorable together. I loved their frustrating, but undeniably cute chemistry. Yes, I got annoyed a few times with all the drama and miscommunication between them, but that never stopped me from rooting for Alex and Bailey to have their HEA. I thought the promposals were outrageous, but so hilarious to read about. LOVED LOVED LOVED the ending! It was satisfyingly heartwarming I couldn’t stop smiling. So, yes… I absolutely had an awesome time reading this story and cannot wait for the next installment. (Crossing my fingers for it to be about Caleb).

Love and Other Secrets by Christina Mandelski was a quick, funny, and somewhat cheesy read, but overall a fantastically cute story from start to finish. If you’re looking for a best friends to lovers YA romance that involves some crazy promposals and plenty of swoons, or just want to read something entertainingly adorable, then I think this is the perfect book date for you.

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



firstkissNora Reid believes scientific laws control everything, even love. With her grandparents’ epic first kiss story cemented in her brain, Nora develops a hypothesis she’s determined to prove: for each person in the world, there is exactly one other person, and at first kiss, they’ll experience an immediate and intense reaction.

But after four years of zero-reaction kisses, she comes up with a new theory: maybe that pesky crush on her stunningly hot best friend Eli Costas is skewing her results.

She needs to get rid of him, and fast.

Eli Costas is an injury-prone lacrosse star with a problem—the one chance he had at winning over the girl next door resulted in the most epically sucktastic first kiss ever. And now she’s…trying to get rid of him? Hell no. It’s time to disprove her theory and show her exactly what she’s missing.  Game. On.

readmyreviewThe First Kiss Hypothesis is satisfyingly sweet, deliciously adorable, and irresistibly swoony! The plot was entertaining, hilarious, and had plenty of sweet moments that made me smile like a dork. Nora’s theory about finding true love, while quite silly and something I would never do, was a unique concept that had me intrigued the entire time. I don’t want to give too much away, but Nora and Eli’s love story is positively charming. Not to mention, it involves a lot of pies… lots and lots of yummy pies!
