Release Day Review! A Wedded Arrangement by Noelle Adams




A Wedded Arrangement (Convenient Marriages #3) by Noelle Adams
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 23, 2019
Publisher: Self

With three months remaining of her marriage of convenience, Savannah is ready to say goodbye to her spoiled rich boy of a husband. He's annoying and argumentative and used to always getting his way. Sure, he's hot. And maybe occasionally a little bit sweet. But she doesn't want to stay married to him.

Not at all.

He needed a wife for a year so he could inherit his grandmother's fortune, and she needed to pay off her family's debts. That's all their marriage has ever been about.

So she really needs to stop falling into bed with him. 


A Wedded Arrangement is the third book in the Convenient Marriages series by Noelle Adams. Savannah and Lance never got along. They weren't friends in school, and they weren't friends after they got married. Doesn't sound like a fun time,does it? Well it wasn't... for them.  But it was for me. I love that the romance wasn't easy for them, yet they still had this chemistry that kept me completely engaged, and the bantering was fun. You know how much I enjoy some good banter. It brought in the reactions of the people around them too. Here we have two people from two different worlds who hate each other, and now they are married?! What? So yeah, there are bound to be some questions. I love friends to more stories. Love them. After this? I may like enemies to more stories even better.

Book Review! Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga




Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy)
Date Published: October 1, 2019
Publisher: Entangled Teen

Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.

Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.

But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony’s dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it’s literally part of her somehow.

And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past…and discovers her mother didn’t leave to start a new life somewhere. She’s trapped in the hidden world within the valley.

Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love. 

Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga had a wonderful premise, full of wimsy. I really liked how the book started and where it seemed to be going. Somewhere along the way it started to lose my attention though. I don't really understand the behavior of a character or two. Their motives weren't clear. Also, what was the point behind Briony's memory loss? It seems as if it was done to her on purpose. Why?  I enjoyed Briony and Alder though. They were cute, and the friendship between Briony and Izzy was quirky and fun. I had high hopes for this story, but i feel like I missed something key somewhere.
