Your Exception by Bria Starr Review

***5 star review***

Ok, what can I say about this book... 
I loved it. It has fun, laughter, anticipation, heartbreak, sadness and happiness. I would recommend it! The epilogue was great too!!
I loved Wren, her description of herself made me wonder if she really saw herself that way, or if her heartbreak and arsehole of an ex made her feel that way. She was cheated on and even though she loved him, she did the right thing and left. 

After moving in with her friend Cassidy, she started working a second job at a bar where she met Logan, a singer in a band. Her first job is in her dads shop, where she works with Zach, a good friend who is also in a band... Yes, we have two totally different guys in two different bands, we're spoilt! 

Logan is your usual charmer who can melt the knickers off of any female within a ten mile radius, but he's also your typical smooth talker. He likes Wren and proves this when he pursues her, talks the talk, and makes her feel special. I liked Logan, but I was on the fence about him from the start. You will love him and then hate him... If you don't, then you have a higher tolerance for complete douchebags than I do! He is the worst kind of player. I wanted to ruin his man hood with a stiletto! I so badly wanted him to redeem himself!

Then there is Zach. He is kind, sweet, and a great friend... He's had his heart broken before and he's also in love with someone. Wren doesn't know who, but has an idea it's a girl from the bar. I instantly liked Zach and wanted to know more about him. Zach is the best friend you can want, he's protective and although he's in the background, you can't help but love him so much. From the get go I was wanting him to heal Wren's heartache, sweep her off her feet, and make her realise she IS loveable. 

Do you believe people can change for the better? 
Will Wren realise she is loveable? 
And when you have a head-and-heart battle, what do you do? 
In the end, it all comes down to that one exception. The one you're addicted to. The one you can't bear to be without. <3 Sarah

My Last Resolution by Whitney G Cover Reveal- 1/27/14

My Last Resolution - With - High Resolution (1)
add-to-goodreads-button31
Synopsis
My boyfriend is an asshole.
A pure, one of a kind, I-wish-I-was-making-this-up asshole.
Every year, I write "Dump his ass" as my most important resolution, but I've never done it.
Until now.
Well, kind of...
Instead of showing up to our "secret" engagement party, I've shown up to the airport--ready and willing to go wherever the next flight is bound. Determined to keep and fulfill all of my resolutions, I'm proud of myself for finally striking out on my own.
Until I never make it to my final destination. Until the sexy stranger who sat next to me on the plane changes everything. Until my "last resolution" is fulfilled a lot earlier than I thought...
Excerpt
Prologue
Eleven.
Not ten. Not twenty. Eleven.
Ever since I was a little girl, my mom would force me and my sister to list our resolutions at the end of the year. She’d tell us to fold them up and carry them in our pockets as a reminder, and to make sure that the last one (“lucky number eleven”) was the most important one of all.
I never understood the purpose behind those resolutions, and in the early years I’d do it just to make her shut up. I’d write things like, “Stop telling Mom that she gets on my nerves,” “Learn how to dropkick the boy who always pops my bra straps,” “Steal better snacks from the cafeteria at lunchtime.”
Yet, as the years passed and I entered high school, I started to take them a little more seriously: “Lose lots and lots of weight by the summer.” “Try to work on my writing every day.” “Stop trying to fit in so much and just be myself.” And I always looked forward to writing that number eleven. Although it was supposed to be a goal, mine was more like a dream: “Find a real life bad boy, make him fall in love with me, and live wild and carefree together for the rest of our lives.”
Unfortunately, I didn’t find him in high school—that “lots and lots of weight” took way too long to lose, and the lames that came shortly after were only interested in having sex.
Very, very bad sex.
My real life bad boy stormed into my life during my senior year of college, in the form of a sweet-talking, former womanizing, ultimate-alpha-male-sweetheart named Adrian Smith III. After preventing me from nearly walking into a moving bus, he told me I was “the sexiest woman [he’d] ever seen,” and the rest was history.
Our love affair was fast and frantic, uncontrollable and overwhelming; it was so reckless and volatile that it almost became an obsession.
I fell in love with him after only a few weeks, but I knew he was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
He was my dream.
My number eleven.
After we graduated college—when things began to slow down and settle, we decided to stay together for the long haul. We had separate goals and aspirations, so we promised to strive for them while still hanging on to each other.
Unfortunately, that’s where the nice version of my story ended.
My life with Mr. Bad Boy became more of a tragedy than a love story, and at the end of last year I did something I hadn’t done in years…
I changed my number eleven.

TAINTED REVIEW BY AMY

I loved the way this book was written.
The author shared with us Drakes time in rehab. It was nice to read what he went through. We got to learn all of his demons and how he had to face them. It was heartbreaking to see Drake face the loss of his parents even though it was years ago. He never truly dealt with it but what 10 yr old does?  He learned how to deal with his obsession and live a heathy life without the drugs.
The second part to the story was from Chloe's POV on how to learn to move on with drake after their heartbreaking time apart. She had to learn to love him wholly plus the fame side of their relationship. They were simply meant to be together.  I loved their wedding, it was super sweet what Drake did for Chloe.
The third part was their HEA, it was sweet as they both for what they wanted.



Book description:
Part One: Facing My Demons
Drake lost everything the day Chloe walked away from him. Feeling angry and hurt by her abandonment, he dives deeper into his cocaine use. Each day becomes a struggle for him. After his band is picked up by a recording studio in Los Angeles, things go from bad to worse. What happens to a man who has lost everything he ever truly cared about?
Part Two: Learning to Love Again
When Drake showed up on Chloe’s doorstep, begging for forgiveness, she couldn’t turn him away. To Chloe, loving Drake is like breathing and she couldn’t bring herself to let him go again.
But what happens next? Follow Chloe and Drake as they learn to forgive and heal together.
Will Drake’s fame get in the way of their happily ever after? Or is love enough to keep them together?
The epic conclusion to Drake and Chloe’s story.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: 

1. How old were you when you decided writing was your passion? Did you ever write anything when you were younger that no one has ever read?
I've been writing since I was little. I filled notebooks with half finished stories as far back as I can remember.  No one has seen those stories. Ever. lol I'm not even sure where they are.

2. Which one of your characters do you love the most? 

Tie between Drake from the Torn Series and Emma from the Ties Series.

I have two books that are FOR SURE releasing this year, after Tainted. Twisted Ties (March 1st, 2014) is book two of the Ties Series.
After that, I plan to release a standalone titled, Breaking Alexandria. (April 1st, 2014) Those two are in editing right now. I'm working on Logan's story (from the Torn series) and another standalone called, Forbidden. If you click on the link below, it has the information on all of those books. :)
