I just finished Nuts by Alice Clayton. It was a really good book, and I would rate it as 5/5 stars. The plot was fresh, and there were twists that even surprised me. I love the banter and humor that was in this book, and the romance. Alice Clayton is one of my favorite authors, and I love all her books. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend!

Leo believes that everything worth doing is worth doing slowly…and how! But will Roxie stay upstate, or will the lure of West Coast redemption tempt her back to Tinseltown
I just finished reading the The Hurricane and The Aftermath by R.J. Prescott. I would rate this book at least 3/5 because I felt like the plot was too predictable. To me, the storyline was somewhat interesting but it wasn’t original, It’s the same where damaged fighter meets innocent gifted damaged girl, and they both fall in love. It was really corny at times, and I felt like there wasn’t a feeling of normalcy to it – like people in this book would not act like this in real life. I would only reccomend this book to a friend, if they needed to typical story – with no cliffhanger.
