He’s the love of her life, but he doesn’t know it.
She’s his one moment of sacrifice in a lifetime of survival.

He was damaged and wild, but resilient.
She’s always been obedient. Now she’s restless.

Home for the summer between college and med school, Pearl Torres Frank knows two things: Boyce Wynn is the embodiment of everything she should run from, and everything she wants to run to. Rebellious and loud. Unconcerned with society’s opinion of him. Passionate. Strong. Dangerous.

And one more trait he hides from everyone but her:
Sweet.

Thirsty Thursdays: First Kiss!

This week I’m choosing a past Thirsty Thursdays topic…first kiss. Usually the first kiss between characters is pretty memorable right?!?  I’ve picked four to share today, and because some of the scenes are pretty long I’ve narrowed them down to a few lines…

Tell Me Something Tuesday with Elena: You and the Apocalypse…

 

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.

This week’s topic: It’s the end of the world…what books do you grab to preserve for future readers?

Whoa…This week’s topic is very interesting and a bit scary I must confess. I have to be honest, though, and say that with everything that’s happening in the world nowadays, sometimes I do think the Apocalypse is nigh…Hopefully that’s not the case, but what books I’d decide to save if the end of the world happened upon us?

Elena Reviews: Breakable by Tammara Webber

 

breakable

 

The synopsis:

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise—until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

Tammara Webber, the New York Times bestselling author of Easy, now delivers a daring and entirely new perspective on love, and why falling for it is beyond our control.

A college age, New Adult romance.

My rating: 5 glittering stars

My review:

She was a lure I couldn’t resist, though she had no way to know it.” — Breakable

BREAKABLE. IS. AWESOME. I feel like I should write this whole review in shouty caps, because if you don’t pick this book up, you’re seriously missing out on one of the most wonderful, emotional and touching novels out there. When Tammara Webber announced that she was writing Easy from Lucas’s POV, I was uber excited mainly for two reasons: 1) Easy is one of those books that affected me in ways I can’t even explain, and having it told from the male character’s point of view was the icing on the cake. 2) I had several unanswered questions when I finished Easy — I didn’t understand some of Lucas’s reactions in several scenes, and I wanted an answer.

Book Club Announcement!

Happy Saturday peeps!

It was just about two years ago when Elena and I began a feature we called Book Club. We chose a book that we both floved and then we discussed it through fairly detailed questions and invited readers to join in. The discussions usually ran between 4-6 weeks, and many of you wowed us with your participation each week. For many reasons we have decided on a completely new format which we look forward to and hope you will as well.
