Trust Me On This
Jennifer Crusie
2010

Dennie Banks is an investigative reporter chasing down the biggest story of her career. Alec Prentice is a government agent working undercover to catch an elusive grifter. When they meet by accident, it’s a case of mistaken identities at first sight. What they don’t mistake is the instant attraction they have for each other, an attraction they’ll do everything in their power to resist—because Dennie thinks that Alec is running interference for her interview subject, and Alec suspects that Dennie is linked to his swindler. As the confusion grows, so do their feelings for each other, and what begins as a romantic comedy of errors may just end in the love affair of a lifetime.

Pleasures Untold


Pleasures Untold
Lisa Sanchez
2011

Hell hath no fury like a witch done wrong. Pissed off and packing an arsenal of witchy mojo, Martha is on the warpath. Determined to avenge the murder of her mother and grandmother, her mission is simple: kill every vampire, demon and underworld bastard she comes across, because one of those hell beasts might be the monster that stole her childhood from her. But when a sexy Latin vamp literally falls from the sky, saving her from becoming an undead Happy Meal, she has no choice but to reassess everything she thinks she knows.

Xan is an anomaly --a vampire born, not turned. A powerful warlock who walks in daylight, Xan spends his days, and nights, watching over Martha, protecting her from Lucian, the blood-sucking monstrosity whose sole mission in death is to drain her dry. Undeniable attraction and the promise of pleasures untold draw the two lovers into a frustrating dance of one step forward, two steps back. When Lucian throws down a deadly ultimatum, Martha is forced to choose between relying on her own mystical woo woo to save the lives of her stolen friends or succumbing to the lure of dark, voodoo magic. Xan and Martha must work together to save those closest to her and put an end to Lucian's reign of terror before it's too late.

-Hayz's Review-
Whoa! Damn! This book gets 5 stars all the way! I loved it! Just like Eve of Samhain, a wonderful read from start to finish.
If anyone wants a fantastic read, then you should seriously check out Lisa Sanchez's books.
BTW: Martha, I am super jealous of you!

Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss
Stephanie Perkins
2010

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris—until she meets √Čtienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna—and readers—have long awaited?

-Hayz's Review-

Oh! So! Cute! I couldn't get enough of this book! At times St. Claire made me so mad! But then I just melted at him. Don't we all know a guy like that? Where his accent melts us, same with his smile and the way he looks at you with the cocked eyebrow.

But this book totally deserves 5 stars! I loved it from the moment I met St. Claire :)

Trapped

Trapped
Michael Northrop
2011

The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. That for those in its path, it would become not just a matter of keeping warm, but of staying alive....

Scotty and his friends Pete and Jason are among the last seven kids at their high school waiting to get picked up that day, and they soon realize that no one is coming for them. Still, it doesn't seem so bad to spend the night at school, especially when distractingly hot Krista and Julie are sleeping just down the hall. But then the power goes out, then the heat. The pipes freeze, and the roof shudders. As the days add up, the snow piles higher, and the empty halls grow colder and darker, the mounting pressure forces a devastating decision....


-Hayz's Review-

Oh my... Ok this book could have been a very good book. But unfortunately it wasn't. First the author got way descriptive in parts I didn't want to know. And the end? Um wtf? It was awful!!!! Spoilers if you continue reading. I mean the friend just died? First that is awful it was like what 2 paragraphs? The his ending? What happened to the rest of the kids.

I also felt like he just wanted to keep skipping to the end. Really? Sorry I just didn't like this book.

The Fidelity Files

The Fidelity Files
Jessica Brody
2008

Jennifer Hunter is prepared to go all they way--well, almost. For the past two years, she has been working undercover as a "fidelity inspector," hired by suspicious women to test the faithfulness of the men in their lives. As she explains to her clients, "I don't initiate anything. I only follow his lead." Working under the code name "Ashlyn," Jennifer has exposed hundreds of unfaithful husbands, fiances, and boyfriends. Of course, she never actually sleeps with any of them; she tests for an intention to cheat only. But while Ashlyn may be changing the lives of countless women for the better, Jen's real life is quickly starting to unravel. Keeping her friends and family from finding out what she really does on all those "business trips" is probing more difficult every day, and a string of unfortunate incidents leads her to believe that her secret identity is about to be exposed. Just when it seems as if nothing is going her way, Jen meets a man who makes her think it may be time to retire Ashlyn willingly, for the sake of true love. But before she gives up her double life for good, she decides to take on one last assignment--a job that will change everything.

-Hayz's Review-
I recently decided to reread this book. But I however did not post it on my 100 BOOK CHALLENGE because we only have 10 books to reread and I wanted to wait and reread something else. But I just love this book and can't get enough of it. Jamie. Sigh. Why can't I be Jennifer. I'll take all her problems if I can end up with Jamie in the end. Haha!

I give this book 5 stars out of five. It was really good, and it hooked me by the first page. I don't really know what to say other than this book was way good and if you like romance mixed with drama then you would like this book.
I can't wait for the next one!

Prom & Prejudice

Prom & Prejudice
Elizabeth Eulberg
2011

After winter break, the girls at the very prestigious Longbourn Academy become obsessed with the prom. Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn on a scholarship, isn’t interested in designer dresses and expensive shoes, but her best friend, Jane, might be — especially now that Charles Bingley is back from a semester in London.

Lizzie is happy about her friend’s burgeoning romance but less than impressed by Charles’s friend, Will Darcy, who’s snobby and pretentious. Darcy doesn’t seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it’s because her family doesn’t have money. Clearly, Will Darcy is a pompous jerk — so why does Lizzie find herself drawn to him anyway?

-Hayz's Review-
So cute! I liked this version of Pride and Prejudice. I really like how all the names were used but in a differnt way, like Reynolds, was the mom?! Not the nanny! It was so cute.

April Lindner
2010

Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, an iconic rock star on the brink of a huge comeback. Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer, and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance.

-Hayz's Review-
Oh my! This book. Was. Just. Amazing! I can't believe I have never read Jane Eyre! The one question I had about this book was how old was Nico? Thats all I was confused about. But the ending, was just so cute. I was so surprised with Nico and his secret! I was just so shocked when I read it, and I was like "What?" I wanted to jump into the story and hit him on the head with the book! Haha!
