Book Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

Book Review: All Played Out by Cora Carmack

As soon as I heard that All Played Out would be about the studious Nell and hilarious goofball Torres, I was absolutely desperate for this book. I want more humor and hilarity to accompany my sexy NA – and with Cora Carmack, you know she’s bringing the sexy. All Played Out was a fun, romantic read, but one that still left me a tiny bit disappointed. There’s no question that my expectations for this book were rather high. And on a lot of counts, Carmack delivered. Torres is a funny, fun guy, for sure, and him falling for the sweet, studious girl was pretty adorable. […]

Book Review: Inspire by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Inspire by Cora Carmack

I start this review with pretty much a broken heart. Anyone who knows me has probably heard me yelling about my love for Cora Carmack. She could do no wrong in my eyes. Then… Inspire happened. Inspire was an attempt to bring us something new: new adult paranormal romance. Until now, the only new adult books have pretty much been contemporary romances, so it was exciting to hear that this would be something different. This would hopefully combine some awesome paranormal/fantasy aspects (because I am alllllll about the Greek mythology, seriously) with the hotness we’ve come to expect from new adult books and more specifically […]

Book Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

Book Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

In my latest hopeless romantic binge, I decided I should finally finish my reading of all of Cora Carmack’s books to date. All Broke Down cements her as one of my all-time favorite, auto-buy authors. This woman writes absolute magic. Her characters are so different yet always manage to be relatable. She tackles real new adult issues while simultaneously bringing us the steamiest of romances. All Broke Down is no exception. Now, you’ll notice that I didn’t think this book was really perfect – and that mostly comes down to the characters. Though different and to an extent relatable, I didn’t have the strongest connection […]

Book Review: Finding It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Finding It by Cora Carmack

After I quickly binge read and loved Losing It and Faking It by Cora Carmack, I put off Finding It, the last book in the series, because I just hadn’t heard many good things. After some time, my desire for more hot romances loaded with chemistry (preferably by Cora Carmack) trumped my hesitance, and I’m happy to announced that I loved Finding It. It is my least favorite of the three, but that’s hardly worth mentioning, because with its heartbreakingly realistic characters and hot romance, it’s a truly great read. Now, Finding It probably won’t work for everyone. Reading some of the many negative reviews […]

Book Review: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack

Book Review: All Lined Up by Cora Carmack

After reading and loving both Losing It and Faking It by Cora Carmack, I was convinced: this lady knows how to write New Adult that absolutely works for me. While All Lined Up doesn’t reach the same level of personal significance and relatability to me, it is a great, light read with Carmack’s reliable refreshing voice. The first thing to note about Cora Carmack’s books is that they are a heck of a lot lighter than most New Adult books. That is to say, the overwhelming majority of New Adult books up until now mostly seem to focus on tortured souls with heartbreaking pasts and […]

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Faking It by Cora Carmack

After just fifty pages of Cora Carmack’s debut, Losing It, I knew that I 100% needed Faking It in my life, so I ordered it right away. And this author just keeps impressing me. If all new adult were like this, it could easily become one of my favorite genres. Faking It follows the absolutely awesome Cade, who we got to know in Losing It – where he did not have such a happy ending. In fact, the book is told from the alternating perspectives of him and Max (Mackenzie), a new character who quickly becomes his love interest. Right off the bat I was […]

Book Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Book Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

The new adult genre and I have a pretty complicated relationship. Well, as far as relationships go. I mean, I think I can still count the number of new adult books I’ve read on one hand. But the ones I’d read did not really entice me to go back for more. New adult, until now, has pretty much just been an excuse for explicit sex scenes. And typically, it’s romantic drama llama that ties into some tough subjects or dark pasts. All typically not my thing. But here comes Losing It, proving that new adult can be done right. Ideally, what I want from new […]
