Everything by Melissa Pearl

April 23, 2015

Jody Pritchett had a dream...but life had other plans. Instead of singing and dancing on Broadway, Jody's a twenty-year-old single mom, living at home with her disapproving father and overbearing sister. The choice to keep her little Angelia came with a high price and although she adores her baby girl, it doesn't take away the sting of kissing goodbye her chance at a career on the stage. Leo Sinclair had his own dream...but got lost along the way. After a failed marriage that left him hollow and downtrodden, the Australian songwriter wonders what joy his future could possibly hold. Encouraged by the one family member who doesn't think he's a failure, Leo decides to stop living the life everyone expects him to and start chasing his dreams again. When the perfect opportunity comes knocking, Leo leaves Australia behind and hops a flight to LA. With his sights set on selling a musical to a Broadway producer, Leo is determined to finally realize his life-long dream. But life gets in the way again, when he spots a young mother outside his apartment in tears. He never realized how one person, one voice, and one Angel could have him contemplating abandoning his dreams once again. As these two burned hearts wrestle to overcome their past struggles, Leo and Jody must decide what dreams are worth clinging to...because, sometimes, everything you want is not everything you need.

 .................................... The Blurb  ....................................
The perfect life or the perfect love. You choose.

For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she shifts to her 'other' life - a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she's a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she's considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other.

With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments that bring her dangerously close to the life she's always wanted. But if she can only have one life, which is the one she'll choose?

A compelling psychological thriller about a girl who lives two parallel lives - this is Sliding Doors for the YA audience.

 .................................... My Thoughts   ....................................
In Short
- I really liked Sabine.
- Sabine is a very strong character who deals with things well.
- The plot is refreshing and unpredictable. 

In Long
For me one of the main things when reading a book is whether or not I like the main character. This can make or break a book in my opinion. In ‘Between the Lives; I straight away liked Sabine. She is a sensible character who has a complicated life, which she deals with well.

The storyline is just fantastic; I just felt so much for Sabine and completely understood her feelings. They were exactly how I could imagine feeling in her situation yet she dealt with them better than how I think I would! I think that’s why I like her so much; she’s a very strong person.

Furthermore the plot was really unpredictable and I feel the author took the story in a direction which a lot of authors wouldn’t have. This really added a refreshing feeling to the book and completely intrigued me as to what was going to happen next.

Final Thoughts
I will definitely be reading more books by Jessica and I hope I enjoy them as much as I did Between The Lives! It’s such a heart-warming book which really made me see things in a different way, something I totally didn’t expect

Necessary Retorations by Kate Canterbary

Necessary Restorations
Kate Canterbary  

They liked to call me names. Manwhore. Slut. Player. But I make wrong look so right… He's a flawed perfectionist… I can read women better than any blueprint. I understand their thoughts and feelings, their secret desires and insecurities, and I know how to get rid of them once I get off. But all bets are off when Tiel Desai slams into my life. She redefines what it means to be friends, and she makes it sound like the filthiest thing I've ever heard. I can't read the gorgeous conservatory-trained violinist, but she's the only one keeping me from shattering by small degrees, and I can't let her go. She's wildly independent… My past—and New Jersey—are far behind me, and now my life is blissfully full of music: playing, teaching, and lecturing, and scouring Boston's underground scene with an annoyingly beautiful, troubled, tattooed architect. I'm defenseless against his rooftop kisses, our nearly naked dance parties, the snuggletimes that turn into sexytimes, and his deep, demanding voice. I have Sam Walsh stuck in my head like a song on repeat, and I'm happy pretending history won't catch up with me. The one thing they have in common is a rock-solid disregard for the rules. They find more in each other than they ever realized they were missing, but they might have to fall apart before they can come together. It's the wrongs that make the rights come to life.

What most girls search a lifetime for…

I felt it the minute he set those whiskey colored eyes on me.


We had it in spades…

My body was drawn to hers the moment she set foot into the room.

What happens when you both have pasts that threaten the future?

Do you do nothing?

Twenty–two-year-old Ari Munoz prefers to keep men at an arms’ length. So when her best friend Vonne guilts her into going to a frat party, she couldn't think of a worse way to spend her night. That's until she sparks the interest of love’em and leave’em Ben Rodriguez. She knows she shouldn’t trust him, but the electricity she feels when they lock eyes is something she's never felt before.
Twenty-two-year-old Ben Rodriguez has it all, and his senior year marks the beginning of even bigger things to come. He's a football star, fraternity president, and his endless pick of beauties makes him the envy of all of his frat brothers. So why is a pair of long legs and hazel eyes making him want to throw out his rules? 

Ari has her secrets.

Ben has his rules.

What happens when both your pasts threaten your future?
