That Kind of Guy by Talia Hibbert | Cover Reveal

I have something very exciting to bring you all today. As you may know I absolutely adore Talia Hibbert and her romance novels. I literally cried when I found out my review had been quoted in the Amazon edition of the book – literally, ugly sobs. Her romance books are a breath of fresh air, diverse and just so well written. This series is the series that started my deep dive into romance and I will never look back.

A Girl Like That by Talia Hibbert and the following books in the series are some of my favourite books in existence. I have a re-read planned of them already and the series isn’t even done. I think that says it all.

I am lucky enough to be bringing you the cover of the third book in the Ravenswood series titled That Kind of Guy. I get chills. That Kind of Guy releases May 2nd. Without further ado, let me show you this spectacular cover.

Sweet On The Greek by Talia Hibbert | Review

| Amazon |

Star-Divider

Rating: ★★★★★

Release Date: July 20th, 2018

Trigger Warnings: biphobia (dealt with), drug addiction mentioned, drugs mentioned, excessive alcohol drinking, kidnapping mentions, major injury mentions, discussion of stalking, counselling mentions

Pages: 231

Publisher: Nixon House

Genre: contemporary, romance, adult

Goodreads blurb:

The only thing he can’t do is lose.

For millionaire footballer Nikolas Christou, one look is all it takes: the minute he sees Aria Granger, he’s a goner. Playboy Nik knows lust—intimately—but his need for Aria goes far beyond that. Of course, the plus-sized beauty isn’t interested in romance… but Nik isn’t interested in giving up. 

Aria Granger has sworn off relationships for her own good. After all, her ex nearly murdered her best friend, so clearly her taste is questionable. When charming, gorgeous Nik bounds into her life, Aria can’t decide if he’s as innocent as he seems… or if her bullsh*t-ometer is broken. 

The super-sweet sports star claims he needs a fake girlfriend to protect him from ‘misunderstandings’. And Aria, with her tattoos, piercings and dangerous scowl, fits the bill. But there’s no way a guy as handsome as Nik can be that bad at handling relationships. 

Can he?

Untouchable by Talia Hibbert | Review

Star-Divider

Rating: ★★★★☆

Release Date: August 11th, 2018

Trigger Warnings: depression, anxiety, parental illness, chronic illness, terminal illness, parental abandonment, discussion of spouse death, suicidal thought mentions, mentions of self-harm scars

Publisher: Nixon House

Genre: contemporary, romance, adult 

Goodreads blurb:

What happens when a bad boy becomes a man?
Nate Davis didn’t plan on returning to his hateful hometown. But then, he didn’t plan on being widowed in his twenties, or on his mother getting sick, either. Turns out, life doesn’t give a f$*k about plans.
Hannah Kabbah thought her career in childcare was over. After all, no-one wants a woman with a criminal damage conviction watching their kids. But when her high school crush returns to Ravenswood with two kids in tow, Hannah gets the second chance she never dreamed of.
She also gets to know Nate – the real Nate. The one whose stony exterior hides aching vulnerability. Who makes her smile when she wants to fall apart. Who is way, way more than the bad boy persona he earned so long ago, and way too noble to ever sleep with the nanny.
So it’s a good thing she’s completely over that teenage crush, right?

July Wrap Up 2018

I can’t even be like ‘wow this year is going by so fast’ because July was the slowest month for me ever. July was a super shitty month for me in terms of my personal life. I don’t think I got a break at all. My mum had three seizures and ended up in the hospital again a week later for almost having a heart attack (all before her 44th birthday). I was left to help care for mum alone while also trying to balance my full semester of uni that I signed up for. I also got diagnosed with mild arthritis so it’s been a mess of a month.

Don’t get me wrong, some good things happened. We finally caught up on our rent. My mum had a great birthday. My mum made a full recovery and there was no heart attack. I got to go see the Masterchef Australia judges with one of my favourite people, as well as have a great day with her and her partner. I also now being treated for my mild arthritis (which is good!) and I got the work experience opportunity I wanted.

Some major highs and lows this month.

I also upped my Goodreads goal and managed to hit 100 books this month! Yay!

You’re not here to hear about my highs and lows of July 2018 though. You’re here to find out how many books I managed to get through. I managed to read nineteen books in July. Here they are. A lot of the reviews haven’t been posted yet, so prepare for them over the next month or so.

Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert | Review

40281342

| Amazon |

Star-Divider

Rating: ★★★★★

Release Date: June 14th, 2018

Trigger Warnings: panic attack, partner abuse (graphic), parental abuse (graphic), gaslighting, birth scene, death of parents (briefly mentioned)

Publisher: Nixon House

Genre: adult, romance, contemporary

Goodreads blurb:

They fell in love fifteen years ago and never quite fell out again…

Laura Burne arrives in Beesley-on-Sea searching for peace, happiness, and safety—not for the teenage sweetheart she left behind. And yet, one moonlit night on the beach, she finds him anyway. 

Samir may be a man now, but he’s still sexy as sin, still sweet as pie, and still determined to take care of her. The problem is, while he’s remained the same, Laura’s life is forever changed—and not just by the unborn child she carries. 

She’s on the run from her own personal monster. Her baby’s father. Her husband. There isn’t a man alive who’d take on those complications. So Laura has to remember that just because Samir protects her, and makes her smile, and watches her with something close to hunger in his eyes, it doesn’t mean he wants her…

Which is a shame. Because, against all reason and all goddamn common sense, Laura just might want him.

Damaged Goods is an interracial romance starring a white heroine and a Moroccan-Italian hero. Though it can be read as a standalone, the author recommends reading book 1, A Girl Like Her, first. This story is 40,000 words of sweet, angsty, red-hot, second-chance romance. There is NO love triangle and a guaranteed HEA!

Please note: this book contains descriptions of domestic abuse, intimate partner violence, and child abuse that may trigger some readers.

June Wrap Up 2018

June of 2018 may be my best reading month ever. I read eighteen books this month. I have read so many incredible books this month, with many coming in under a four or five-star rating – something I give out rarely. I am beyond shocked and, honestly, quite giddy over these ratings. I am so pleased to see a month where I enjoyed a large number of what I’ve read. June was also a month where I got super on top of all my posts, trying to post more bookish discussions and writing lots of reviews. A lot of these books don’t have reviews posted just yet, but they’re coming. I’m currently scheduling posts for August now (oops) so prepare to see them popping up and be patient.
