BLOG TOUR: BEARD IN MIND BY PENNY REID

Beard in Mind, an all new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Penny Reid, is coming August 1st!

All is fair in love and auto maintenance.
Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.
Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.
Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.
She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words.
Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.
The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

*ARC received in exchange as with a honest review*
5 BRUTALLY HONEST STARS
So, I remembered when I read Cletus and Duane story before that I really need to read Beau's story and so when I received the ARC, I freaking devour it. I mean, it is THAT GOOD.
And OMG Beau, why are you so charming?!

Beau Winston is this good-natured, easygoing guy that everyone loves and it was so exciting that I finally managed to get to know what makes him thick. I assumed that he is going to be like the guy that sleeps around because he is so loveable but yet he is the opposite of that and that kinds of surprised me. He is undeniably delightful of course, especially when he is full of his charms but yet I also like to be introduced to his 'dark' side. I also fall in love a little bit more with him when he managed to tackle his own demons. 

I was a bit skeptical at first with Shelly became Beau love interest because I am an idiot and Beau has this special place in my heart but man, after reading this I approve 100 percent. In fact, now I think Shelly is exactly what Beau needs because she is just perfect for him. Shelly is this refreshing character that I gradually fall in love with mainly because of her peculiarity. She could be described as hot as a top model but with the skills of a gifted mechanic and super talented with sculptures. And man, my heart breaks for her when she struggle to overcome her 'obsessions' because her level of disorder is something that I have never heard before and I just wanna give her a big bear hug.

Overall, I would like to think that Penny Reid has created another masterpiece because I can't seems to get Beard in Mind out of my mind. Heh, see what I did there? :P But it is true because when the mood strikes and I suddenly become brutal honest with people around me I feel like I am Shelly and whenever I smile and be charming I feel like I am Beau. Gosh. What a strange feeling this book has made me feel. That just shows how fabulous this book is that you will keep thinking of the characters as if they live with you. And with that, I highly recommend Beard in Mind because you are going to be absolutely and definitely loving it. 

P.S: I totally thought Beau gonna propose at one moment but it turns out to be such a freaking sweet and touching gesture. Beau is so sweetttttt. Sigh.
P.P.S: I think I need a chart about all the characters appeared or mentioned in this book because there are so many of them and although I've read and love the books from Penny Reid other series, I cannot remember them all lol.

BLOG TOUR: Dating-ish by Penny Peid

MY REVIEW
*Advanced reader copy received in exchange for an honest opinion*

5 "You are the sine to my cosine" STARS!
Dating-ish is surprisingly refreshing, extraordinary and hilariously awesome.

I love everything about this book and Penny Reid as usual delivered a perfect jewel. It is very witty, exciting and I had a really good time savouring every pages.

Matthew Simmons or Matt is not your typical 
hero as he seems a bit unique, or maybe odd sometimes with the way he speaks and also maybe the way he is dressed. Nevertheless, there is this charm to him that I like right away from the start. And OMG, his nerdy jokes are ridiculously hilarious. I love it!

Now let's talk about Marie, she is super loveable and totally great. I like that she is very kind, compassionate and always seems to be helping people and yet she is also really brave and adventurous. She can be a little bit craaazy sometimes expecially at going the extra mile to get her work done and I admire her for her bravery. Most of all, I loveeee how she is a great cook and Matt being a food lover is seriously perfect.

All that being said, I think Matt and Marie is perfect for each other and I enjoy reading their story. It was definitely one of my top favourite love story and I highly recommend it. Totally worth reading and believe me if I say you wouldn't want to miss out on this one. :)

BLURB
Dating-ish' can be read as a standalone, is a full length 100k word novel, and is book #6 in the Knitting in the City Series.

There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 1) She's fed up with online dating, 2) She's so fed up, she's willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 3) She knows how to knit.
After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of humankind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:
Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?
But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he's not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different--and crazier--solution to her dilemma . . .
As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?

REVIEW: THE FOXE & THE HOUND by R.S. GREY


About THE FOXE & THE HOUND

When your life is a hot mess at twenty, it’s cute. At twenty-seven…well, not so much.
It’s just that my lofty dreams—making it as a real estate agent, paying rent on time, showering daily—have stayed just that: dreams. Oh, and love? I’ve decided love might be a little ambitious for me at the moment. Instead, I’ve settled for the two guys who will never leave me: Ben & Jerry.
That is, until Dr. Adam Foxe takes up residence as the town’s new vet.
With his strong jaw, easy confidence, and form-fitting scrubs, it’s not long before every housewife in Hamilton is dragging neglected tomcats in for weekly checkups.
Like everyone else, I’m intrigued. Even after I spoil my chance at a good first impression, he still offers me a proposition I can’t refuse: play his girlfriend at a family function and he’ll hire me as his real estate agent. Welcome to love in the 21st century.
It’s too bad I underestimated Adam’s irresistible charm and the undeniable attraction that burns between us. The day he pins me to the wall and silences me with a kiss, the line between reality and ruse begins to blur. Every teasing touch brings me to my knees. Every kiss promises more.
It looks like my hot mess of a life is about to get a little hotter.

MY REVIEW

*Advanced reader copy received in exchange for an honest review*

5 ADORABLY MOUSE STARS
R.S. Grey has once again delivered a masterpiece and it is freaking awesome!

I like every single thing in the book and Adam Foxe and Madeleine Thatcher are perfect together!
Adam is this new hot dude in town and he drive black Audi, wear suit and also happened to be a vet. Did I mentioned he is hot? yeah, he might be my new book-boyfriend. (Ssshhhhh. Don't tell my fiancé) Anyway, I like how Adam just have this aura to him that drawn readers to offing love him and most importantly I like how he can't help himself from falling in love with Madeleine. I also like her crazy mum too lol his family is very entertaining.

Madeleine is the sort of heroine that you would definitely love and I really admire her for her strength in dealing with life. She seems like to always struggle to make ends meet but she keep her head high and just keep moving forward as much as she can. I also like that she has this quirks about her and she can be really funny that I totally laugh at some of her monologue and amusing antics.

All in all, I would say that it is a book that have a splendid storyline with marvelous characters and if you are looking for a book that you could indulge into with additional bonus of good laughs then this is perfect for you. Highly recommended!

MY REVIEW

*Advance reader copy received in exchange for an honest review*

4 OPPOSITE ATTRACT STARS!
Somehow, Some Way was a delightful read that will certainly gives readers an enjoyable time.

Brady is this hot 35 years old Latino architect that likes everything to be neat, tidy and fixed. Somehow, he is set on his mind to seek for a 'traditional' wife that will obey him, cooks food and take care of the children at home. I must admit I think it is quite rare to find a male lead in a book that is looking to settle down because it usually about the playboy or manwhore or something like that. So in that regards, I felt that this book is refreshing although the female in me pretty much screamed inside when he told Charlotte his ideal wife characteristics because hello it is now 21st century and I like to work. But I don't know, being a stay at home wife can be good too hmm..

Anyway, let's talk about Charlotte now or Charlie as what she likes to be called as. Charlotte is a gorgeous 25 years old newly hired at the Pierce Brothers Construction in which it is the same company as where Brady works. She is young, impulsive, work-driven, totally not conservative and has no desire to settle down any time soon. In other words, she is a complete opposite of Brady.

And yet, somehow and some way they attracted to each other especially during the time they spend together in renovating a house that Charlotte bought. I like how they actually sort of dislike each other at first and then as they gradually getting close they just can't ignore their feeling anymore. Then, the angst about the different wants and needs in life is just a perfect flair in the plot and I dig that. 

All that being said, I would say that it is worth reading and if you're looking for a good time that this book is definitely for you. Recommended for contemporary romance readers who loves a HEA.

EXCERPT: 

  “I’m already working my ass off for you.”
  “No, your list. For what you want in a woman. Have you graduated to date four yet?”
Irritation skittered across his features. She tried to tamp down her delight. “Not yet.” She waited him out, learning he liked to space out his responses. “I’m seeing her again this Friday,” he added grudgingly.
  “Ooh, exciting. Okay, so tell me what floats your boat, Casanova.”
  He shuddered. “God, please don’t call me that. Or talk like that.”
  “Sorry, I forget you’re a bit high class.”
  “No, I just speak proper English.”
  “Stop stalling.”
  He looked away but she caught the edge of a grin. He’d be loath to admit it, but she made him laugh. And from what she’d seen, this man desperately needed someone to balance all that seriousness. It must be exhausting.
  “Fine. What do you want to know?”
  She practically clapped her hands with glee. “The same question I answered. Tell me the traits in your perfect woman.”
His arms flexed as he worked the hammer, and her gaze snagged on the lean, sinewy muscles under gorgeous brown skin. Wood chips and dust clung to his figure but it only added to his attractiveness, giving a sense of ruggedness to his normal poised elegance. Yes, women would definitely seek him out for his appearance alone, but she wondered how many stayed after they got a dose of his attitude. He must be on his best behavior to trick them.
  “I don’t know why you’re interested in this,” he muttered.
  “Tit for tat.”
  “It’s simple, really. I know exactly what I’m looking for. I’m ready to get married and have a family.”
  “Right away?”
  “Yes. My future wife will have a few core qualities that I won’t compromise on. Loyalty, honesty, and dual respect are at the top.”
  She cocked her head, studying him. He’d managed to surprise her. “Very thoughtful. Excellent choices.”
  “So glad you approve. I need a certain amount of intellectual stimulation, as I’m sure she will, so she cannot be just a pretty face.”
  Huh. Maybe she’d been wrong about him. So far, she wholeheartedly agreed with his choices.     “Can’t argue with those.”
  “I don’t need laugh-out-loud funny, but a sense of humor helps get you through hard times.”
  “Agreed.”
  “And then she needs to obey, of course.”
