Review: The Benefits of Bad Decisions by Lisa Suzanne

unnamed (9)The Cover: I think the cover of The Benefits of Bad Decisions is gorgeous! It is probably my favorite cover of any of Lisa’s books and I just think it’s gorgeous! 

Basics: The Benefits of Bad Decisions was released on April 1st 2019 and is 405 pages long. Genre wise The Benefits of Bad Decisions belongs to drama and contemporary romance. 

Description: After a bad decision lands me a role on a reality show, I expect it to be my big break as a TV star. Despite getting kicked off the first night, I land on my feet again when a talent agent who saw the show offers me an audition as back-up dancer for a popular rock band.

Knowing this could be my stepping stone is exciting, but the real thrill is watching Brody bang on his drums every night. It’s a bad idea for a dancer to hook up with a band member, but after he kisses me, I can’t stay away.

Facing the consequences was inevitable, and it only takes one scandalous mistake from my past to cause our complete destruction. Bad decision or not, I always manage to come out on top… until I don’t.

Overall thoughts: The Benefits of Bad Decisions completely blew me away! Lisa Suzanne had so many twists and turns that my head was spinning! The beginning of the book was very hot and heavy, another aspect that completely caught me off guard. I don’t mind when books start off like that, but it definitely surprised me! The Benefits of Bad Decisions started off with a bang, continued to fizzle and pop halfway through and ended with a bang. I really enjoyed the flow of this book! 

Zoey and Brody are definitely a sexy couple, with fantastic chemistry that leaps off the pages and leaves you wishing you had a connection like theirs. I think the biggest standout of the entire body was the major plot twist that directly occured between Zoey and Brody, no spoilers but holy freaking cannoli that was DRAMATIC. But who does love a good contemporary romance book with a touch of drama?! All in all another fantastic book by Lisa Suzanne!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
divider-3I am currently reading three books at the moment! I’m reading Not Just Another Rock Star Romance by Lisa Suzanne, One Tough Cowboy by Lora Leigh and Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa! It’s been a couple of busy days because of Thanksgiving so I’m trying to play catch up! But without further ado here is the break down of everything I’ve been reading lately!

42422405.jpg
Blurb: I’ve never been able to say no to my manager, which is probably why my band instated the No Bang Oath. When she asks me to star on a new reality dating show right before we go on tour, the last thing I want to find is love. But since it was Kylie who asked, I say yes. Besides, I can’t turn down the exposure for my band.

As I forge connections with the women—including the show’s hostess—I can’t seem to shake Kylie out of my head. When I find myself at the center of a scandal, I don’t know what’s worse: the bad press or the disappointment in Kylie’s eyes.

How do I prove I’m not just another rock star before I hit the road with one of the biggest bands in the world?

39863375.jpg
Blurb: First in a brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick about one man’s pursuit of justice—and unbridled desire. 

Law & Order. For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…

Pride and Passion. And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

Blurb: One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos. Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart. With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Release Date: Out now, published October 2nd 2018.

38598301.jpgThe Power To Break by Lisa Suzanne
Blurb: As the bad boy drummer for the multi-platinum band Vail, Ethan Fuller thinks he’s invincible. He acts on impulse and has committed to the stereotypes of the rock star life with no regard for consequences. The one girl who had the power to tame him is just a distant memory. 

Now that she has landed the opening gig on Vail’s next tour, Maci Dane is on the path to everything she always wanted. Fame, success, and money are trivial compared to her real objective: to break the heart of the one who broke hers.

When they meet face to face for the first time in nearly two decades, Ethan is reminded of the one who got away while Maci works tirelessly to hide her past. As she attempts to even the score, feelings from the past are rekindled. Will she give into love or use her power to break him?

Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Blurb: Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.
Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Review: Outwait by Lisa Suzanne

o1.jpg
The Cover: 
Outwait cover is hot but for some reason I wish it was a couple cover with Carson and Sylvie on it. I like abs but I wanted a better representation of the book’s couple for this. Or maybe even the model’s face with a moody glare? I don’t know but something is miss. B+

Basics: Outwait was released on June 1st 2017 and is 292 pages long. Genre wise Outwaitbelongs to romance and contemporary romance. 

Description: From the outside, Carson King looks like he has it all. He’s next in line to be CEO of King Communications, he’s hot and single, and he’s at the center of the New York social scene. He has a different woman on his arm every night, and he wouldn’t change a single thing about his life…until Sylvie Baker storms into his boardroom.

Sylvie Baker actually does have it all. She balances a successful career with the perfect boyfriend—a man she plans to marry someday. She wouldn’t change a single thing about her life…until Carson King challenges everything with one simple confession.

Sylvie is intent on fighting her feelings. Carson’s convinced it’s just a waiting game.
But how long is he willing to wait for her?
o2.jpg
Overall thoughts: Outwait was a joy to read, I tend to lean more towards the angst kind of contemporary romances because I find those more interesting and Outwait was a great combination of that. I also find it rare in the romance book universe and especially real life that any kind of person would simply just wait for the person they cared about or wanted. It’s rare guys! So Outwait is like a unicorn in a way, still around but hidden in plain sight. I adored Carson and Sylvie. Although Carson was the typical bad boy in any contemporary romance novel, he had some hidden undertones that I really enjoyed. For example, it is SO RARE that authors write about the main guy having intimate relations with anyone but the main woman and Suzanne showcased that. Did I mind? No because I feel like it gave a deeper insight into Carson. Another hidden undertone was just how Carson waited for Sylvie, it was very sweet to read about. Also how dang relatable is Sylvie?! I mean how many people struggling with wanting to move with their lives with something new and better, but have a hard time letting go? I really, really love how Suzanne brings real life circumstances into her books and I greatly appreciate how relatable her characters and stories are. I love Outwait! My only complaint was that I wished it was longer! (Nothing new when it comes to my reviews, I always want more! I’m greedy! Sorry not sorry 😛 )
