Book Review: Bounce by Noelle August

Book Review: Bounce by Noelle August

Ever since Boomerang first came out, I thought I’d found a new NA romance writing duo that would suck me into the genre. Sadly, by Bounce I can officially say that it’s not quite the case. I enjoyed Bounce, sure, but it’s more or less like every other new adult title out there. Nothing special. I was super excited about Bounce when it was announced – we’d seen flashes of Grey in Rebound and he was the super fun, wild little brother to Adam. And he just joined a BAND. HELL FREAKING YEAH. I love stories about actors and/or musicians – the behind-the-scenes kind of […]

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. […]

ARC Book Review: Rebound by Noelle August

ARC Book Review: Rebound by Noelle August

After falling head over heels in love with Boomerang last year, it was a given that I would read the next book in the series, Rebound. In fact, when I heard it would be about Adam and Alison, I was SUPER excited. The glimpses we got of the two in Boomerang already promised great shipping potential. Rebound was an entertaining, sexy, refreshing read, but not quite as good as its predecessor. I came into Rebound after only reading fantasy so far this year, so it was an extremely exciting breath of fresh air to me. Right off the bat, I was in love. I loved […]

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: Boomerang by Noelle August

Book Review: Boomerang by Noelle August

By now, if you follow my blog, you may have realized that I’m really discovering – and loving – the New Adult genre this year. That’s because FINALLY (*stands up and cheers*) NA books like Boomerang are coming out: books that are sexy, fun, flirty, personally relevant with new adult situations/feelings, and not bogged down in drama or trauma. First up is the personal relevance – Boomerang has it a shit ton for me. That’s not to say that I engage in one-night stands, but for the past year, I was a marketing intern! I loved seeing that – in fact, I haven’t really read […]

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 […]
