Synopsis: He was supposed to kill me. I had done the unthinkable. I called the cops on him, on his family, but he let me live. We became friends, and then... we fell in love.
Lucy Ives is a foster kid, running from her turbulent past. On her first night in New York City, she accidentally calls the cops on the mafia. When their fixer comes to kill her, he spares her life in exchange for a favor--be his fake fiance or die.


Lucy is the female lead that is studying in biology. She has a past from being in the foster care system. Despite her baggage, she is very intelligent and beautiful. She goes with her roommate Aimee to a nightclub. There she witness a crime and reports it. As the events go, it turns out that the club is mafia oriented and Lucy literally put her life in danger. Asher Black, the owner of Black Enterprises is the clean up man for the Romano family. After her failed attempts to cover her tracks, Asher tracks her down and instead of getting rid of her he has a proposition.

The love of mafia stories drew me to this. I love reading about them and watching the movies. This story had all the elements that I love and then some. The physical attraction between the two was undeniable and had me anticipating. The two characters was so unique. Lucy being a great female lead and Asher being complex but understandable. Even the secondary characters added the flavor to the story.

This story had suspense, danger, lust, and humor. It was well rounded and had me wanting more. The writing was effortless and it flowed really great. 

I loved the narration of the story. Her voice fit the tone of the story and her pacing was good. Her male voices were ok but the story was so good that it didn't really bother me. 

Overall, I loved this story and the narration and I look forward to reading/listening to more from these two.

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.

Book Review: Class of '59 by John Heldt

(I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads summary: When Mary Beth McIntire settles into a vacation house on June 2, 2017, she anticipates a quiet morning with coffee. Then she hears a noise, peers out a window, and spots a man in 1950s attire standing in the backyard. She panics when the trespasser sees her and enters the house though a door to the basement. She questions her sanity when she cannot find him.

In the same house on March 21, 1959, Mark Ryan finds a letter. Written by the mansion’s original owner in 1900, the letter describes a basement chamber, mysterious crystals, and a formula for time travel. Driven by curiosity, Mark tests the formula twice. On his second trip to 2017, he encounters a beautiful stranger. He meets the woman in the window.

Within hours, Mary Beth and Mark share their secret with her sister and his brother and begin a journey that takes them from the present day to the age of sock hops, drive-ins, and jukeboxes. In CL…

June Wrap Up

So for this month I did really good and read a total of 11 books! Two of those books were on my original TBR and the rest I picked up as a I saw. Normally on average I read about 4 or 5 a month but my reading has really been doing good. So here is all I read for the month of June.
























Most of these were 4 stars. I read more contemporary than any genre. Home and Away is a book for School Library Journal so unfortunately I cannot share that review at this time. Have anyone of you guys read any of these topics?
