Review...Mirror Me by: Tara St. Pierre

Mirror Me
 
Hannah McCauley doesn’t look at herself in the mirror anymore.

After a rebellious past, she now attends a strict private school in a new town, where her recently divorced mother has put her on social lockdown. No driving. No bad grades. No skipping classes. No unapproved friends. No makeup. No boys. And the subject of her best friend from her old school is definitely forbidden.

Hannah is being punished for something that happened a year earlier, something that she would like to put behind her. But strange occurrences frighten her, and she’s accused of breaking rules and doing other terrible things without any recollection of them. No one believes her, so she starts distrusting everything, even her own reflection.

Is she being haunted by her past? Stalked by someone with a grudge? Or is it all in her head? If she doesn’t figure out what’s happening fast, her existence could end up irreparably shattered.

 
My Review: (ARC provided)
4.5 stars!

I couldn’t put this book down. I’m not a big YA reader, but this book just sucked me in. It was so suspenseful you had to find out what was happening to this poor girl. What happened in her past?

It’s paranormal, but yet it didn’t feel that way. This was such a unique and original story.
Hannah, our MC, has recently moved and her mom basically has her on lockdown. We as readers don’t really know why but we know it has something to do with her rebellious past.
Hannah is afraid of almost everything around her doesn’t know what she should or shouldn't be doing. 

When Hannah starts experiencing some crazy things and can’t remember what she's done or hasn’t, things start going to hell. She’s tried to maintain her good girl image at her new school, but her reflection isn’t going to let that happen.

She can’t look herself in the mirror, she beats herself up for her past, but her reflection won’t let her look away. Hannah thinks she crazy and starts doing things she can’t remember.

There is a sweet love story thrown into the mix, and the suspense had me turning the pages trying to figure out what was going to happen.

I really enjoyed this story, it was different and took me out of my “reading” comfort zone.

I recommend!
 
About the author:
 Tara St. Pierre
Tara St. Pierre has been writing for over two decades, but her muse only sporadically provides inspiration. Her laptop is filled with incomplete manuscripts and other plot outlines, and she feels blessed when one finally pushes its way through to completion--no matter how long it takes!

She enjoys classic science fiction movies and television shows. When driving, she sings along with the radio loudly and off key. She prefers tea over coffee, spring over autumn, vanilla ice cream over chocolate, and caramel over hot fudge. Though she lives by herself, one of her two cats enjoys cuddling with her.

Blurb

Tori…
For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.

I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him. 

Ethan…
Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. 

What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.

My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.

Cover Reveal! Only You by: Melanie Harlow is coming March 12th!

ONLY YOU COVER REVEAL BANNER

Only You, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is coming March 12th!

MHOnlyYouBookCover5x8_BW_300
Title: Only You
Author: Melanie Harlow
Publishing Date: March 12th
Designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs
Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry

Synopsis

Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall—a different one every time—and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit—he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.
But it’s a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us.
I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.

BLURB:
Fate made us brothers, loyalty made us family.

A bond that runs deeper than the Mississippi, my brothers and I might not have the same DNA but what we share is far more powerful. Our loyalty to one another and the man who made us a family is stronger than those bound by blood.

The most sought out sharp shooters in the country, our paths were certain, before one woman changed my life and altered the relationship I have with my brothers.

Ryanne Lockwood disappeared without a trace but her memory never faded, torturing me on the darkest nights. Until a twist of fate leads me back to her, sending our worlds to collide once more, and this time, there will be no escaping me.
***
Justice Creed’s bad boy appeal caught my attention from the moment he rolled into town. For years I watched from afar, swallowing up the rumors that surrounded him.

Until we shared a night of forbidden passion. One that destroyed my heart and reshaped my soul, and it sent me fleeing from the only town I’ve ever known.

Now, years later, he's barged back into my life, uncovering a secret I've worked so hard to keep and it's one that will change our lives forever.



Lindsey's Review (ARC provided)

Five Stars!


I’m not even sure how to start this review. Holy wow! I first fell in love with K.C. Lynn’s books when I read Fighting Temptation and with every book I read, the more I fall in love with K.C. Lynn’s books.

I was much like everyone else, waiting with baited breath for this book to appear on my kindle and let me just say, there was no disappointment. 

With every new story, K.C. just continues to surprise and completely slay my heart with the beauty and personal connect she can create between the reader and her characters. 

When I pick up a new book by K.C., I never feel like I’m reading a story she has already written. I differently felt like with this book, she broke my heart, by the end she had put it back together again. 

I really felt a personal connect to Ryanne, totally understanding her struggle and need to keep herself and the things she holds dear safe. Justice, on the other hand, takes a little longer to root for, but by no means does that mean I didn’t fall deeply in  love with this character. 

I know I am not really giving away too much about this book but honestly that has more to do with my fear of giving something away than not knowing what to say. I honestly can’t say enough about how much I love this book.

If you have not picked up K.C. Lynn book before, this is a great one to start with. Just emotionally prepare yourself. This is one of the most beautiful emotional roller coasters I have been on in a while.

The best part of finishing this book is knowing that there are two more Creed brothers to come. So please K.C. Lynn, please write faster! I absolutely loved the first Creed brother and can’t wait to see what you have in store for the other two!

I am thrilled to bring you the cover from New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, REBEL HEIR the first book in a new, sexy duet releasing on April 9th!

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.
