About ADDICTED

Ethan Frost returns in the breathtaking conclusion to New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff’s seductive novel Ruined—perfect for fans of Release Me and Bared to You.

As Chloe Girard discovers, there’s love . . . and then there’s addiction.

Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He’s rich, gorgeous, powerful, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.

But that’s not why I’m with him.

I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me. The way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.

But sometimes it terrifies me how much I crave him, how much I need him just to breathe. I always thought it would be my past that ruined us, but there’s a darkness in Ethan I never dreamed existed. Can we survive as his secrets surface—threatening to unravel us both?

About Tracy Wolff

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

Title: Ugly Love
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Publication Date: 5 Aug 2014
Source: Review Copy
Rating: 4.5/5

Synopsis from Goodreads

An unforgettable love story that breaks all the rules.

When Tate Collins finds airline pilot Miles Archer passed out in front of her apartment door, it is definitely not love at first sight. In fact, they wouldn’t even consider themselves friends. But what they do have is an undeniable mutual attraction.

He doesn’t want love and she doesn’t have time for a relationship, but their chemistry cannot be ignored. Once their desires are out in the open, they realise they have the perfect set-up, as long as Tate can stick to two rules – never ask about the past and don’t expect a future.

Tate convinces herself she’s ok with it, but soon realises that it’s harder than she thought. Will she be able to say no to her sexy pilot when he lives just next door?

REVIEW 

OK OK – takes deep breath.
Sooo I kinda stayed up all night Saturday reading this book and I have to pronounce Colleen Hoover the Queen of words that bring on all the feels. I mean ALL the feels.

I was instantly apprehensive remembering just how ugly the sobbing got when I read Maybe, Someday. With the buzz about Ugly Love being even more emotional I prepared myself in advance anxiously awaiting that point where my heart gets ripped out of my chest. I gotta tell you – I didn’t cry. You’re probably screaming WHAT? at the screen right now but it’s true – I didn’t cry. You want to know why? It’s because I would still be crying, the type of crying you never recover from. The type of devastation that there is no way back from. As the plot unfolded I had an inkling of where we were going to end up. Believe me I prayed to the god of words and plot lines that it wasn’t what I thought but just in case the niggles at the back of my mind was confirmed I couldn’t allow myself to feel that kind of pain. So I detached myself, I kept that barrier firmly in place. Don’t get me wrong I still felt the pain but I just COULDN’T do it on a personal level – I know it makes no sense but it would have just been too personal. The type of personal where you get up in the morning and kiss and hug the people you love just for being there. That totally happened by the way. Just not the personal I could take too personally – if you get what I mean. Yeah you probably don’t unless you’ve read it – which you totally should because its beautiful.

Told in dual narrative from Tate and Miles’s point of view. Whereas Tate’s perspective is the present action and interaction, Miles takes us back to events that have shaped his present situation. OH MY GOD MILES. From their very first encounter you can feel the bond between them while equally experiencing Miles’s reluctance to give/accept anything other than a physical relationship. My heart literally ached for both of them. While you question Tate’s continued acceptance of the situation, you can also understand that the bond between them defies logic and therefore, Tate can’t be judged for enduring emotional situations that would have destroyed a lesser woman.

Miles is completely broken, the reason unfolding seamlessly alongside the growth of his ‘relationship’ with Tate. As an outside observer it’s obvious just how much being with Tate alters Miles for the better. Yet his reticence causes them both more pain. There were moments of excruciating heartbreak where Miles words were like daggers through the heart, not only to Tate but through mine alongside hers. YET, yet, you know deep down that it’s so much more. The worse thing being that there was no solution nothing to get around those broken pieces until they ripped both of them to shreds.

Although Miles is broken he is also kinda freaking PERFECT. Yeah, I know I’m twisted. BUT when this guy loves, he loves with everything he’s got, EVERYTHING *swoon* It made me completely envious, what would it be like to have someone love me like that – to feel utterly adored and cherished – like the only woman in the entire world. PERFECT RIGHT?

I’m not giving more of the plot away because YOU HAVE TO READ IT. What I will say is that Colleen Hoover’s writing style is utterly, utterly beautiful – her mastery with words shines through this book. Miles’s point of view reads like a verse novel with the stunning use of word placement and creative use of white space. It is simply sensational.

 The Outsider Chronicles, #1

New Adult/Adult Contemporary

Releasing August 12, 2014

Cover designed by Okay Creations

Knox Jagger. The name inspires resent in every male at Sinclair University, want in every female, and contempt in Charlie Chase.

Charlie can be summed up in three words: independent, independent, and independent. To Charlie, Knox epitomizes everything that’s wrong with college males: prolific one-night stands, drunken senseless fights, and a body that hints at prioritizing gym time over study time.

As an up-and-coming writer for Sinclair University’s newspaper, Charlie’s tasked with getting to the bottom of who’s been dropping little white pills into girls’ drinks at parties. In an ocean of All-American boys sporting polo shirts and innocent smiles, Knox is the obvious suspect. As evidence piles up against the bad boy of Sinclair, Charlie becomes more and more certain it isn’t Knox. But when her drink is dosed at a party and she wakes up on Knox’s couch the next morning, Charlie’s left with more questions than answers when it comes to Knox Jagger.

How can Charlie ever hope to uncover the truth behind a guy so closed off he’s become . . .

Hard Knox.

Rating: 3/5

Synopsis from Goodreads

Children’s librarian by day. Romance novelist by night.
British single father.
Someone else is writing this love story…

Blair Walton isn’t your average curvaceous tattooed children’s librarian. She’s also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she’s afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That’s why she and Raine write in secret.

On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and “do some research”. Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He’s British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair’s not the only one with secrets.

REVIEW 

Ok, so I was totally smitten as soon as I knew the story focused around a children’s librarian. Blair is a tattooed, smut writing children’s librarian – how can anyone not totally love her just from that :)

Blair is what really made Unwritten for me,  not only is she someone I could personally relate to (hello, teen librarian here) but she was also a terrific role model for women everywhere. She accepts herself for who she is, she embraces her life and herself and other people gravitate to her for those reasons alone. She’s utterly gorgeous, curvy and comfortable with her body (inspirational) I really loved how she accepted herself as she was, embracing her love of food and covering her body in literary quotes and book illustrations.

I’ve got to be honest and say I really didn’t get Declan’s appeal, especially the Draco Malfoy appearance (not my type obviously, lol). However, Declan’s role as a father endeared him to me, he really is a wonderful father and has a terrific relationship with his son. I’m always slightly envious when I see/read about ‘good’ fathers. Personal experience with less than stellar male role models makes even good fictional fathers bittersweet for me.

Chelsea’s adorable, quirky sense of humour shines through the narrative, it is one of my favourite things about her writing :) Her use of unconventional modern literary couples added to the humour and relatability of the story as a whole :) Add in the humourous and probably very accurate insight into the world of writing and editing on a deadline alongside strong female friendships and you have a captivating story.

While the romance was a secondary element in the book for me, I absolutely adored Blair. I wish she were real so I could use her as inspiration for my girls.
