Guide To The Blue Beech Series (Sorta)

I was going to read the whole series before putting this post out but honestly... the series wasn't for me. I only read it because I don't know how to say no to people. I never wanted to read it and maybe that had something to do with it. 

While I rated every book here 3 stars or below,  I know that my seat mate loved every book we read. She didn't want to read the first two books which is why they aren't here. I wasn't going to force myself to keep reading books I hated for no reason. They are standalone novels. I wasn't confused at all jumping into book 3. 

These are the older covers... the author redesigned them to fit into the new cartoon theme romance books have.

This story follows Gage and Lauren, a couple that was in love as teenagers, but then Lauren broke it off out of nowhere and left Gaga heartbroken. He never got over her and she never really got over him, either.

Gage moves back to town and runs into Lauren, where she’s accused of burning down her apartment. Things move on from there. They slowly get closer again, Gage begging her to tell him why she broke his heart and ran away, all while pushing her away because of what happened the time they were apart. 

Just like the other books, there’s a conflict in here that makes no sense. I don’t want to spoil the twist in case you want to read this book, but I will say that I just didn’t like it. 

For this series, I like it before they get together and after it’s just meh. 

It’s a fast read that you’ll enjoy, but it’s nothing special.

This is one of the worst in the entire series. I hated the twist. I don’t think the main characters had any chemistry. The writing is still fast and fun. I laughed a bit. But honestly, the way he treated her after something happened and then that freaking terrible twist... this one is just not for me.

This one is my favorite of the books in this series. Which isn’t saying a lot. Maliki and Sierra have a very complicated connection between them. 

Even though Sierra is in love with Maliki, she marries a loser dude who she doesn’t love and then that loser dude cheats on her. So now she’s gonna get a divorce from the loser dude she should never have married.

Then the twist ending has Maliki acting like a completely different character than the start of the book.

That’s my main issue with this series. In order to create more conflict, the author has to change the characters or make up something stupid to keep the plot going. I think these books would be better than novellas. That would fit this story well.

Now this novel has steam, but the entire series does. So if you read clean romances, this is not for you.

Overall, I love most of this book. There are just glaring parts that have me shaking my head.

Just Friends follows two characters who claim they are just friends. They are anything but. It’s both funny and utterly ridiculous. Honestly, while I enjoyed this novel, I can see its flaws ten miles away. 

Rex’s scared to ruin his friendship with Carolina and won’t make things official, lying and saying they are just friends, but he treats her just like a girlfriend. They even have to pretend to be a date for her family. 

Then there’s the twist ending… which is just plain dumb. Not to mention how Rex handles it all without getting into any trouble. Which would not happen in real life. 

This book is just too far-fetched to be taken seriously. Sure, it’s fun while reading, it’s quick and you never want to put it down because you just need to see when they will finally get together. But once you’re done with it… it’s pretty forgettable.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction.

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
