Falling for the Beast (A Modern Fairy Tale Duet #2) was a great read by Skye Warren. A new revelation threatens Blake's new job and Erin's upcoming graduation. He knows that he can't risk her graduation no matter how much he loves her. I have really enjoyed Blake and Erin's story. Skye Warren has a great way of writing the characters so that you fall for them and want the best for them. I can't wait to read more by Skye Warren.

Harold dreams of being a hero like his father, a Navy SEAL, but - he is what you might call an easy target. He’s short, he’s almost legally blind, and he’s the new kid in town! When the biggest bully in school smashes Harold’s glasses and he has to get a new pair, something amazing happens. Suddenly, Harold can see anyone’s greatest fear. Do you know what this means? R-E-V-E-N-G-E. And it has never tasted so sweet. One by one, Harold is going to make bullies pay. But in the end, what if Harold becomes the villain in the story...instead of the hero?

Harold Peabody & The Magic Glasses was a good read by Dawn Kopman Whidden and O.M.Faye. Harold wants to be a Navy SEAL just like his father. Unfortunately he is short, almost legally blind and new in town. A huge bully in his school breaks his glasses and now he is looking for revenge. I liked reading Harold's story about wanting to be the hero and not the villain.

Catherine Grier seemed to have it all - money, prestige, and a beach house that would rival the Hamptons. But an old scar buried deep in her soul hides a life filled with lonely nights and painful memories...until a dusty old book lands in her lap, sending her back in time to 1767 and into the arms of sexy Lord Bryne Adair. Forced from his country on charges of treason, Bryne trusts no one, especially not the blue-eyed, blonde-haired vixen he discovers in his bed, claiming to be from the future.

She must find out why the ghosts have chosen her as a conduit. This was a good quick read by the author.

When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change. Or maybe not. Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: Anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

Maybe Not was a great quick read by Colleen Hoover. Warren finds out that he is now going to have a female roommate and he instantly agrees to the idea. He didn't expect the new female roommate to be the cold and calculating Bridgette. They seem to not be able to stand the sight of each other and can barely be caught in the same room as each other. Warren theorizes that with the hate she carries, her capacity for love is even bigger. I loved reading about the beginning of Warren and Bridgette's relationship.

When rising rock star Jack Kingston comes to play on our college campus, I think he’ll be just another fix. Instead, he flips everything around and makes me question who I am, what I want, and why I do what I do. After he leaves, everything changes. Pushing myself in the pool, struggling to keep up with my twin sister, it’s what keeps me from losing myself entirely. Swimming isn’t my passion. It’s my source of stability. When I find the courage to finally start pushing my boundaries, I discover success in ways I never imagined, both in and out of the water.
