Blog Tour: When Joss Met Matt

When Joss Met MattABOUT WHEN JOSS MET MATT:

In the tradition of New Adult superstar Jessica Sorensen, Ellie Cahill’s debut novel is a charming friends-with-benefits story . . . with a twist!

What if after every bad breakup, there was someone to help “cleanse your palate”—someone who wouldn’t judge you, who was great in bed, someone you were sure not to fall in love with? “Sorbet sex” could solve everything—as long as it never got too sweet.

Joss and Matt have been friends since freshman year of college, meeting one night after Joss is dumped by her boyfriend. After a few drinks, Matt humors her with a proposition: that he’ll become her go-to guy whenever she needs to heal a broken heart. In return, she’ll do the same for him. The #1 Rule: They’ll never fall in love with each other. People scoff at the arrangement. But six years later, Joss and Matt are still the best of friends . . . with benefits.

Through a string of boyfriends and girlfriends—some almost perfect, some downright wrong—Joss and Matt are always there for each other when the going gets tough. No strings. No attachments. Piece of cake. No problem. After all, since they wrote the rules, surely they can play by them. Or can they?

Advance praise for When Joss Met Matt:

“Hands down, one of my favorite New Adult reads . . . Ellie Cahill is definitely one to watch!”—New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack

“This is one of those books that make you forget everything around you. Prepare to be consumed by this story.”—Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author of Wild

“Fun, sexy, and full of amazing chemistry, When Joss Met Matt is an entertaining escape that will leave you smiling with every turn of the page.”—Cassie Mae, author of The Real Thing

Blog Tour: Rebound by Noelle August reviewed by Lisa

Rebound by Noelle AugustTitle: Rebound
Series: Boomerang #2
Author: Noelle August
Pages: 288
Release Date: February 10th, 2015
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
Source: Edelweiss

I received an advanced copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange of an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I decided to finally read Boomerang, after all the surrounding hype, and I did enjoy it for the most part. And that was due mostly to the banter between the two main characters more so than the actual romance, even though Ethan was super cute and hot.

This time around I wasn’t extremely happy with the pairing but I was like, hey, why not give Alison a chance to redeem herself and all that? And why not let it happen with the CEO of Boomerang and the guy who intrigued me from the first book, Adam.

For the most part it was a little hard for me to like Alison as she wasn’t the nicest person when she was first introduced. But maybe I just feel that way because I’m not big on infidelity plot lines and the characters involved because that is just another hard limit for me. And any of her interactions with Mia came off as, well, awkward and uncomfortable. Then again it can’t be easy befriending the girl your ex is with even if you were to blame for losing him in the first place.

But aside from that Alison and Adam as a couple wasn’t that hard to get on board with. However, Adam went from this super serious guy to this almost different guy when he fell for Alison. And that I did not expect. And also the fact that their relationship didn’t start on the best of terms as Alison was trying to prove to her father that she was good enough and doing so meant going after Adam’s business and livelihood. But I am always in the mood for a little forbidden-esque romance.

While for me this wasn’t as light and fluffy as Boomerang, I did still enjoy it because of the writing. The writing just sucks you in and before you know it you’re a quarter of the way through in no time. This one seemed a bit shorter than the first book but it was still a good read overall. Looking forward to the next book as this series just has this feel good appeal to it. My only major issue is that this was very light on the NA in my opinion. But then again not all NA has to be down and dirty, but I do appreciate a little more sexy times. ;)

I received an advanced copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange of an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Diabolical, indeed! This book doesn’t hold back. Set in Victorian England where the city is electric-powered and filled with cool gadgets that makes it a great steampunk read, from the very first page the reader is thrown into the thick of things and Dr. Eliza Jekyll is dealing with a murder scene, as she is a crime scene investigator and a rather brilliant one at that. I have to admit that I was a little bit confused as to who was speaking but after about 2 pages I was able to get the gist of it. Eliza Jekyll is the daughter of the infamous Dr. Jekyll and as one would imagine also shares her father’s curse. The lure of the elixir to release her alter-ego Lizzie Hyde is always there lurking beneath her skin and in the back of her mind. Pushing at Eliza to just give in and let that side of her deal with… matters.

As mentioned above, Eliza is dealing with a murder that was committed by the serial killer named the Chopper. One can figure out why he is called such as he likes to well, chop off body parts. The first killing shown in the book deals with a dancer whose legs have been chopped off. I have to say that maybe this book isn’t for the faint of heart as it can be very descriptive. Although it was immensely enjoyable for me.

But the killer isn’t the only thing Eliza has to worry about. The Red Society has sent one Captain Lafayette to prove that Eliza deals in sorcery, which means that she has to be even stronger to resist the temptation to use the elixir and release her alter-ego Lizzie. And that becomes increasingly harder as Lizzie may be just the one to catch the killer.

The diabolical Miss Hyde is a great start to the Electric Empire series with a likable and strong heroine who has an entirely entertaining alter ego who gets things done, creative world building and setting, with a dash of romance to make things even more interesting and just the right amount of gritty edge and technology that make this a very strong novel. Highly recommend for fans of steampunk and fantasy.
