I have a bad reputation.

Call me what you want: Bad Boy Next Door. Trouble. That Kid Who Can't Do Anything Right.

When Willow moves into my neighborhood, nothing should have happened. She's geeky. Shy. A true wallflower.

Willow is a good girl.
Too good for me.

And how the hell was I suppose to know that she's related to Loren Haleyeah, that douchebag celebrity that lives on my street. The same guy I've been pranking by spray painting vulgar words on his mailbox and worse. Much worse.

Don't ask me why I do the things I do.
Don't ask me why it had to be her.

I'm cursed. Simple as that. But here's the thing about people who are cursedthey break everything they touch.

And yet... I still want to touch her.

Why? MY DARLINGS WILLOW AND GARRISON. Confession time: I actually never got the chance to read the web series, so diving into this will be a full new reading experience for me. And. I. Can't. Wait! Anyone who has known me for a long time know that the Addicted series by Krista & Becca Ritchie hold a very special place in my heart. I've been terrible with keeping up with current works but Addicted series is my GO-TO when I need comfort and feels. I look forward to finally getting the behind-the-scenes look at Garrison and Willows relationship growth :')

Love Her or Lose Her
by Tessa Bailey

| +Goodreads |
Series: Hot & Hammered #2
Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
- - -
Rosie and Dominic Vega are the perfect couple: high school sweethearts, best friends, madly in love. Well, they used to be anyway. Now Rosie's lucky to get a caveman grunt from the ex-soldier every time she walks in the door. Dom is faithful and a great provider, but the man she fell in love with ten years ago is nowhere to be found. When her girlfiends encourage Rosie to demand more out of life and pursue her dreams of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love, too. Three words: marriage boot camp.

Never in a million years did Rosie believe her stoic, too-manly-to-emote husband would actually agree to relationship rehab with a weed-smoking hippy. Dom talking about feelings? Sitting on pillows? Communing with nature? Learning love languages? Nope. But to her surprise, he's all in, and it forces her to admit her own role in their cracked foundation. As they complete one ridiculousyet surprisingly helpfulassignment after another, their remodeled relationship gets stronger than ever. Except just as they're getting back on track. Rosie discovers Dom has a secret... and it could demolish everything.

Why? First off, how cute is this cover??! I am honestly loving illustrated covers so much these days. It adds a special quirkiness that just draws me in (I'm a sucker for pretty covers, what can I say?). It's not often that I come across the marriage troubles trope but I do hope we get little flash backs throughout the book to how they got together. I always love a glimpse at a couples beginning to compare it with their current characters. Tessa Bailey is a new-to-me author but I've only heard good things! I haven't read the first book in the series so I'm going in blind. I'm pretty sure these are standalone novels in the same universe. Odds are I'll end up reading book one as well heheh.

What are you waiting on?
I'd love to stop by and see your pick(s), just leave a link in the comments :)


  1. I haven't read anything from either author. But both of these books sound so good!
