Synopsis

 
Falling in love is supposed to be the easy part. 
 
But nothing prepared me for losing my wife. I promised her that I’d love again. Find someone to mend my broken heart. And that seems impossible, until the day that I walk into Tilly Carter’s cupcake shop. 
 
I’ve never met a woman like her—sassy, dirty-mouthed, and smells like vanilla and sin. Someone that makes me want to sweep her off her feet. 
 
But there’s pain in her emerald eyes that mirrors mine. 
A past that neither of us can truly escape.
 
Now that I have her, I’ll do anything to keep her.

MY REVIEW

 

Hook by Chelle Bliss
Angelo & Tilly
JOYFUL, SAD, AND MOST ENJOYABLE
5 Ugly Cry Stars

From the newer Gallo spin off series, The Southside.. this one will nearly kill you!! Have you ever woken up your husband at 1AM by blowing your nose and wiping your face? Well, that would sum me up while reading this book!

Angelo is this solid, smart, and generous guy that you will fall in love with immediately. He has so much love in his heart to give that may be masked by pain and sorrow. It’s just waiting for the right girl to crack that thing wide open and implant herself in there… sometimes without even knowing it’s happening. I gotta say, he made it easy for me to love him.

Tilly is this little spitfire that moves her new cupcake shop next door to Hook & Hustle (Angelo’s’ family’s bar) and 5-4-3-2-1, let the fireworks begin. She’s struggling with similar issues, but seems to have more of a hold on her circumstances.

The supporting character cast is fantastic. Of course all the family will be involved, but that one little girl.. Little Tate (Angelo’s daughter) is so damn cute and smart beyond her years. She knew what her Daddy needed long before he did… This kid is incredible.

This damn book will make you look like a damn mess the next day after reading it… with your puffy eyes and red nose, but it’s effing worth it. Ugly cries, laughter a plenty, and characters so fantastic that I feel like I know them so well. It’s not a dark read, but you will be all over the spectrum as far as your emotions go. The pacing is swift, the dialogue flows, and the writing style is brilliant. Highly recommended!!!n

Review: Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann

36521819

Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.

All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.

Until …

Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.

The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.

This woman …

She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.

Still …

She must go.

Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.

My Review

Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann
Flint & Ellen & Harrison
MY HEART IS FULL
5 Stars

I read this on recommendation from Pam Godwin… seems she fangirls over Ms. Ann a lot and I can’t blame her one bit! This book was amazing and amusing and emotional and everything I needed to make me feel complete!

“Feelings are our greatest compass. They will always lead you to the truth.”

Flint is a man struggling with mistakes he made in the past. He punishes himself daily and without even knowing, he punishes those around him also. His life has become a series of calculated events that even his friends, co-workers, and son have noticed are in need of a facelift.

“It’s extraordinarily hard to acknowledge our imperfections, especially when they cause something so devastating… but you are in fact just like everyone else. You’re human, Flint.”

Ellen has a past also, but I wouldn’t go as far to say she’s punishing herself for it, more like she’s closed off in certain areas so to speak. She’s a music therapist and as far as I’m concerned a damn good one. Her personality and wit captured my heart immediately and I’m fairly certain she’s one of my favorite female characters.

“You can be an ass all you want. You can try to make me feel inferior and unwanted, but I am not that girl anymore. So go fuck your own hand. I’m sure it’ the only thing you consider a ten, you egomaniac.” 

The supporting character cast isn’t too large. The only one I feel like mentioning are Flint’s son Harrison “Harry” to Ellen, Harry is amazing and his candor made me laugh out loud more times than I can count. He’s autistic and reminds me of my favorite nephew therefore I connected with him right away. People need to be more like Harry!

“Something about a scale from one to ten. My dad said you’re a seven. Which is weird. Seven’s like a seventy percent. That’s a D at my school. Sixty-six to seventy is a D.”

Well, I started out devouring this book. Turning pages so fast because I couldn’t get enough, but I realized that I’d be done soon and… well… I couldn’t have that. I did not want this one to end. Ms. Ann brought out every emotion my body could manifest. The storyline is unique and the characters are like old friends. The dialogue flows nicely and the pacing is perfect. The tension was thick and the climax is superb. I loved it!

STANDALONE NOVEL FROM CHELLE BLISS
EVERYTHING CHANGED IN AN INSTANT.
I thought I knew what was important, but one phone call sent my life into a tailspin. Alone and afraid, I clung to the one man I shouldn’t. I was warned about him and told to stay away. “He’s dangerous,” they said. But the man who could hurt me the most, gave me the greatest comfort. “He’s not who they think,” I told myself. But just like an illusion, things are never what they seem.

Enshrine by Chelle Bliss
Bruno & Callie
HEARTBREAKING, EMOTIONAL, AND JUST RIGHT
5 Stars cause 10 is not an option!

Well, for starters, this book is amazeballs! This one is so off the charts it will put you into a tail spin and your soul in an uproar. I can’t remember when I read a book so full of emotion that I had to put it down for a bit just to collect myself and my thoughts! Chelle has poured her heart and soul into this book and it shows. Don’t mistake me, you WILL cry and you WILL gasp, but you most definitely will laugh your ass off as well.

Callie is such a powerful character. I am amazed at her strength and her wisdom. Staring down the barrel of a gun with a rough road ahead, she does exactly what I would have done. She closes in on herself. She shuts everyone and everything out. I believe she thinks if she acknowledges the “elephant” in the room that it’ll crush her into a million tiny pieces and she’ll never see the light of day again. Enter Bruno! The light at the end of the tunnel. I love this man!

Bruno is everything and nothing all at once. He’s mysterious, he’s uber hot, and his life couldn’t be more complicating. He deals with his own demons, but finds the power to be what Callie needs. He brings so much depth to this story with his curious lifestyle and his temperamental ways. What once was a frightening, dark stranger has now become the driving force within himself and Callie. This man will make your day, your week, hell, even your year!

The supporting character cast is not small, but really not too big either. Lee, Bruno’s sister is so damn cute. I just need this girl in my posse like NOW. I think she’s just a little bit of a crutch to her brother right at the times he needs it the most. Knowing now what I know about her, she couldn’t have come into Callie’s life at a better time. As for the rest of Bruno’s family, they effing rocked! Welcoming and warm! Funny and blunt. I loved them, but I always love Chelle’s made up families… somehow they seem to make me want to be adopted by them. Now, Becca, Callie’s bestie is such a doofis. I mean, she cares about Callie, but it seems most of the shit Becca did or said didn’t help at all. I still loved her and her quirky ways!

This story will stain your soul forever. The pacing is medium to fast paced and keeps you turning pages before you even know it’s 2AM and you’ve gotta be up at 4:30AM for work (True story). The characters are lovable and believable. They make this story so rich with love and laughter. The dialogue flows and feels very natural. Chelle doesn’t tell you a story here, she shows you one. The tension created by this tale will lead you to the most exhilarating climax. I loved it and will be talking about this one for years to come.
