Book: Charade (Games #1)

Author: Nyrae Dawn

My Rating: 5/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Nineteen-year-old Cheyenne tries to portray the perfect life to mask the memories of her past. Walking in on her boyfriend with another woman her freshman year in college threatens that picture of perfection.

Twenty-one-year-old Colt never wanted college and never expected to amount to anything, but when his mom’s dying wish is for him to get his degree, he has no choice but to pretend it’s what he wants too.

Cheyenne needs a fake boyfriend to get back at her ex and Colt needs cash to take care of his mom, so they strike a deal that helps them both. But what if Cheyenne’s past isn’t what she thought? Soon they’re trading one charade for another—losing themselves in each other to forget about their pain. The more they play their game, the more it becomes the only thing they have that feels real.

Both Cheyenne and Colt know life is never easy, but neither of them expect the tragedy that threatens to end their charade and rip them apart forever.

My Review:

Oh my god, I loved this book!

It reminded me a little of Beautiful Disaster at times, but it’s so much better. And this is said considering that I did like Beautiful Disaster quite some.

Charade is about this girl and this boy getting together in an attempt to hide themselves. Cheyenne needs to show her cheating ex-boyfriend that she’s better off. And Colt needs money to overcome his mother’s medical expenses. But neither are being truthful, with each other or themselves. Continue reading

Happy Birthday… to me!

Yup, today is my birthday and I turn 21! Yay me! 😉

(I know you’re seeing the number 22, but for my sake I needed Rob with me on my birthday so, you know… deal with it!)

Given the big occasion, and that I’ve been a succesful blogger for three full month (successful meaning I’m still here), I thought I could do a big giveaway.

What do you say? You agree? Yeah, me too!

I took my time picking the books I’ll be giving away. Since I live in Uruguay and taxes suck and I don’t have a job, I’ll be giving away ebooks, so yes, it’s international! YAY! 😀

Now to the list, and let me just tell you that they are all on my favorites list, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Are you ready? Yes? Let’s do this! Continue reading

Review: What A Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn

Book: What A Boy Wants

Author:  Nyrae Dawn

Published: April 2012

My Rating: 5/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Courtesy of watching his mom’s relationships, Sebastian Hawkins knows what girls need to do to get a guy. He has what he considers a PHD in hooking up. When he needs extra cash for a car, Sebastian starts up an online venture as The Hook-up Doctor, to anonymously help girls land the guy of their dreams. Of course, his services don’t offer a happily-ever-after guarantee. He’s seen firsthand getting together never means staying together.

And then he falls in love…

With the last girl he would expect…

Totally not in his game plan.

Suddenly, Sebastian finds himself muddled in the game he’s always prided himself on. He can’t even pick up girls at parties anymore! Why would anyone want to be in love when it turns you into a stuttering, screwed-up, mess with really lame stalker tendencies? Stalking? Totally not his gig.

But the Hook-up Doctor won’t let himself go down easily. He’s always known how to give a girl what she wants and now it’s time to figure out what a boy wants… and he definitely plans on getting it.

My Review:

“Watch out, world. The Hook-up Doctor was in love.”

Holy… Mother of God!! So was I.

I’m so in love with this book. It was perfect. Since the very beginning until the very end. So freaking sweet! Continue reading
