Anyways, as mentioned in my blog tour post, here’s my review for the amazing book

 ON MY KNEES 

 by Meredith Wild

On My Knees (Bridge, #1)

Some Info on the Book:

It’s been five years since Maya Jacobs watched her soul mate, Cameron Bridge, walk out of her life. After he proposed and she was forced to turn him away because of a past that continues to haunt her, the only option left was to throw herself into work and live by the rules of …. well there were no rules.

Now, here she is in New York, a city with more strangers than familiar faces, working for a boss she can’t stand and finding love at the bottom of a bottle instead of in the arms of the man she wants.

When a not-so-chance encounter bring her and Cameron back together, will she finally be able to move past all the pain and hurt she still suffers from, or will it come back to haunt her and prevent her from moving forward?

Things Not Found in the Synopsis:

For this book I’m liking…

Waiting Game

by Banks

Why this song, you ask. Well let me tell you… because this entire damn book is a waiting game!

Is happiness going to ensue? No… fine then.

Okay, how about now? No? …Seriously?

Now? Still Nada.

Now?!! WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO! GOD DAMNIT! My life is black abyss.

Anyways, other than that I love the vibe. Love the sexy, almost suspenseful bass that leaves you on the edge of your seat. Like your waiting for something (*snorts* I see what I did there..) to happen and you have no idea if it will.

Overall Rating: 4.25 Stars ****1/4

I had the wonderful wonderful opportunity to beta this book, and let me tell you it did not disappoint. I haven’t read the Hacker Series – *GASP* I know how offensive – so this was my first introduction to Ms. Wild and what an introduction it was.

This book is…. angst. No, not ‘angsty’, it is angst. Pure, unadulterated, emotion stringing, frustration inducing, tear activating, hair pulling, book throwing angst.

And I loved every page of it.

I ate that sh*t up like my chubby dog would gobble up a plate of bacon.

This is a story of heartbreak and of a woman who’s issues are so deeply embedded in her consciousness, you have no idea whether she’s going to allow herself to find happiness or be constantly pushing it away with a vengeance. As a reader, sure I got frustrated. I wanted to strangle Maya, bitch slap her, hug her, comfort her, talk encouragement to her – but it’s always easy as a reader to say, “Just be happy”, especially when we were in Cameron’s head and saw how he loved her unconditionally. Like truly unconditionally. I’m not sure I’d be as understanding as him, considering how many secrets she was keeping. Good on’ im. Good on’ im.

Anyways, these two had chemistry that was THROUGH THE ROOF!

Like Holy Crapola. *Fans self* I was invested in them from literally page 1. PAGE 1! Cam was AMAZING. Incredibly sexy, confident, strong – he was this rock in a wild ocean that was always consistent.

I would strongly recommend this book (PS. I want to clearly state I did enjoy Maya as a character. I know it probably seems a bit ambiguous, but she is actually a fun character).

What a fantastic read!

An “Easy” Decision

Do you like bad boys?

Do you remember the good ol’ days when you’d obsess over that random guy you’ve never met, but GOD if he wasn’t beautiful to look at?

…. I better not be hearing silence because that would make me a weirdo since I remember those days far too well (the remembering part is most definitely up for interpretation though).

Anyways, this is the story of Jacqueline Wallace and how she stole my dream boy.

LOL I’m just joking. I know Lucas and his sexy lip ring, shaggy hair and piercing eyes are all hers

Moving on…

About the Book:

Jacqueline Wallace made the classic mistake of following her high school boyfriend to college in the mindset that they were each others together for ever.

When he breaks up with her, she’s too busy nursing a broken heart to realize the rest of the world is moving on around her.

One night her best friend convinces her to go to a Halloween Party and she agrees, not realizing it would be the night that would change her life.

While walking to her truck, she’s attacked, but before things get too far, she’s saved by a complete stranger.

From there it was a snowball effect that ended up with her falling in love with the guy who saved her, but in return might need some saving himself.

What’s Not in the Synopsis…

The song I’m liking is….

Breathe

by Angels and Airwaves

Let me briefly explain. I read this book when it first came out – as in way back when, when it was only three dollars (Best three dollars I’ve ever spent BTW). Anyways, now, how many years later, Lucas’s side of the story is being released (in May. EEEEP!), and I was creeping on Tammara’s Blog and reading a spoiler for Breakable and  – perhaps I’ve gotten ahead of myself – but the vibes of the samples I was reading was screaming for this song! At which point I went, “Well, Tianna, it’s time to write a review for Easy.”

Overall Rating: 5 Stars *****

What can I say, this is one of the first books to introduce me to my favorite genre: New Adult. I loved this book. I loved being able to relate to Jacqueline on normal university girl stuff, from worrying about whether I’d see the hot guy that day to studying none stop for exams, all the while trying to earn some money by working.

I think she was one of the first heroines who didn’t irritate, because she was just so … normal. She wasn’t annoying and Tammara wasn’t trying to shove character traits like “brave” down my throat during times where it didn’t make sense. Instead she showed me Jacqueline was brave. She showed she was a fighter. And not even unrealistically so where she  all of a sudden became some crazy MMA chick, but she just learnt to be smarter and use what she could. I had a lot of respect for her.

And Lucas… oh my. Not only did he have me sitting back and fanning myself because of his sheer sexiness, but his story truly broke my heart. His reactions to some things knocked the air from my lungs and had me devastated for him especially because I felt like Jacqueline and knew things I shouldn’t have.

Anyways, the tension between these two was phenomenal and Ms. Webber writes make-out scenes like no body else’s business. Highly recommended book that deals with fairly mature subject matter without insulting it, but rather making it something that needs to be noticed and dealt with.
