You know that specific kind of frustration that comes when you have work that really needs to get done but your brain is just no co-operating?? Yeah that’s me right now and if I don’t distract myself for a bit, we’re gonna spiral and nobody wants that.
And so here I am to talk not only about the books I got recently, but the bookmarks too!!
Once upon a time I said over and over that romance was my least favourite genre and that I especially never thought I’d like Adult Romance. Well, well, well how the turntables because fast forward a couple of years and here I am!
I really milked the romance cow back in February and I kinda feel bad about still going on the romance train BUT i realised I’ve not talked about up and coming New Adult romance books I’m interested in reading so I’m going to do that today!
Terms & Conditions by Lauren Asher – February 24th
I’ve been seeing people reading Terms & Conditions over the last week since it’s release and I am so jealous!
The Dreamland Billionaire’s series follows the grandsons of the fictional version of Disney. Each grandson is given a task, I guess you could say, they have to complete in order to secure their shares in the company. The second book follows the eldest brother Declan who has to marry to secure his position and so he marries his assistant Iris.
I loved the first book in this series which I read late last year. I did a whole review on it in my grumpy/sunshine post if you want to check that out. I’d like to say for the record that I am anti-real-billionaire’s but fictional-billionaires are very fun to read about!
There’s a slight chance that some of the Romance tropes overlap with YA tropes I’ve already talked about but that’s fine. I repeat myself on a daily basis anyways, may as well incorporate that to my blog too.
I have just submitted my last assignment which means I’ve officially survived my first semester of University. Wow. A milestone moment. It also means that I now have two weeks of doing nothing which is great, I plan to read a lot, but I’m also bored already 😶
To pass the time a bit tonight, I thought I’d get into the Valentine’s day spirit early (it’s not even February for me right now as I’m writing this) and take some love and romance related quiz’s.
I feel like the way I’m going to do this is share the question and my answer. I’m not going to bother with sharing the other answer questions unless I’m humming-and-ahhing over a choice. I’m also gonna leave links to all these quizzes just in case you’re bored too :))
(Please beware: not a lot of thought or effort has gone into this post)
Mackenzie “Mac” Cabot is a people pleaser. Her demanding parents. Her prep school friends. Her long-time boyfriend. It’s exhausting, really, always following the rules. Unlike most twenty-year-olds, all she really wants to do is focus on growing her internet business, but first she must get a college degree at her parents’ insistence. That means moving to the beachside town of Avalon Bay, a community made up of locals and the wealthy students of Garnet College.
Mac’s had plenty of practice suppressing her wilder impulses, but when she meets local bad boy Cooper Hartley, that ability is suddenly tested. Cooper is rough around the edges. Raw. Candid. A threat to her ordered existence. Their friendship soon becomes the realest thing in her life.
Despite his disdain for the trust-fund kids he sees coming and going from his town, Cooper soon realizes Mac isn’t just another rich clone and falls for her. Hard. But as Mac finally starts feeling accepted by Cooper and his friends, the secret he’s been keeping from her threatens the only place she’s ever felt at home.
