Red, White & Royal Blue- Casey McQuiston

41150487 A big-hearted romantic comedy in which the First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales after an incident of international proportions forces them to pretend to be best friends…

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.

The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince. Alex is busy enough handling his mother’s bloodthirsty opponents and his own political ambitions without an uptight royal slowing him down. But beneath Henry’s Prince Charming veneer, there’s a soft-hearted eccentric with a dry sense of humor and more than one ghost haunting him.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

*Arc Review* Bring Me Back- B.A. Paris

“Bizarrely, the overriding emotion I feel is shame, that at forty-one years old, and six-foot-four, a few little dolls can strike such terror in me.”

B.A. Paris is back with a novel that will shock you up until the very end. There were so many twists and turns that I never knew where we were going to end up. I always come to expect something shocking when it comes to her books and she doesn’t disappoint with this heart stopper.

This is one of those thrillers where I’m still running every inch of the book through my head and it won’t let up. I’m analyzing every piece of evidence and I’ve finished this hours ago.

The characters, the buildup, the shocking twists, and that end will have your mind reeling. Not a lot of books make me feel uncomfortable to be in my own house. This one spooked me and I’m not sure I want to trust anyone anymore.

Thank you, St. Martins Press for the galley and for spooking my day!

You might want to sleep with the lights on tonight and lock the door!!!

He Said/ She Said- Erin Kelly

Holy mother of Poseidon!!

Review is of an advanced readers copy that I have received from the publisher for an honest review!!
Who do you believe?

That stuck with me through the entire book and once you learn the truth, you’ll find it even harder to trust anyone. Even people you think you know intimately. 
The last chapter in this book is the most disturbing thing that I have ever read before. It’s spookingly different, thought provoking, brilliant and thrilling as hell. 
Laura and Kit are young in their relationship. Being travel companions to witness some of the worlds best solar eclipse and they fall in love. Cornwall is their next stop and it will be life changing. 
While finding the perfect spot to watch as the world goes dark they stumble upon something shocking. A guy on top of a girl who is so terrified that she is mute. Laura tries to help the girl and the guy runs off, telling them it’s not at all what it looks like. What comes after is something no one could even imagine. 
With statements come lawyers and the trial begins. Some horrible things are put out into the world. But it all comes down to what he said and what she said. Who do you really trust? 
Laura befriends the girl she helped and things go from fantastic to horrifying. She stalks them into a panic. They can’t go out of even breathe without Beth knowing about it. The most of terrifying things take place and Kit and Laura run for their lives. Changing their identities and go into hiding in a new place. 
But the question still stands, who do you believe? 
This was one fantastic crazy book. You never know what you’re getting yourself into with a book like this and I was shocked with every page there was. I’m glad that I received this from the publisher early. Now I have to wait with the creepy crawling feeling for the release date. 
As I was reading, I felt my skin crawl like maybe there was someone behind me, watching me. As I slowly turn around….I’m alone, but those feelings stayed with me along time after this book was finished. 
Add this to your tbr now, you won’t regret this one bit.
