Hello Forever - Sarina Bowen ( a romance I enjoyed reading)

contemporary romance
characters from "Goodbye Paradise" are part of the story
I listened to the story in audio book format 
and enjoyed how it was narrated
the story is about two men who were friends as teens 
and had an intense night
but then were forced to go separate ways
now after years they meet again
and have to deal with the fact
that there are still intense feelings between them
the story was at times emotional, cute, sexy and dramatic
the mix worked for me quiet well
some of the developments were a bit too predictable 
and the story isn't one that will stay with me for a long time
however I enjoyed reading it.

Slammed - Victoria Denault (an entertaining sports romance)

#2 in the San Francisco Thunder series
sports romance
Slammed is the first book in this series I have read
it's a fast paced, entertaining romance
that doesn't take itself too seriously
I went into this book without having any big expectations
I was hoping to have a good time with the story
to be able to forget the stress I had in my everyday life
and that's exactly what the story delivered
the romance is one with some ups and downs
due to developments in the personal lives of the main characters
I'm often a bit annoyed by constant ups and downs
however in "Slammed" it worked for me
I liked reading about all of the characters
and the main romance was the right mix of sexy, sweet and funny
I plan to read the first book in the series soon
and I'm excited to see what will happen next in the series.

Autoboyography - Christina Lauren (an emotional love story that touched me deeply)

contemporary young adult
coming of age + romance
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book
I love some stories by the author duo
others were just ok for me
I was drawn to this book because of its ingenius title
wonderful book cover
and the fascinating sounding plot
two boys falling in love while writing a novel?
what's not to love?
but I was also a bit wary of the story
because one of the main characters is deeply religious
and an active member of a church
I'm not a religious person and wasn't sure how religion would be portrayed
and if I would enjoy possible religious elements
I'm happy to report that the book was pretty much perfect for me
right from the get go I felt connected to the story and most of the characters
I was emotionally involved
and loved reading about Tanner
his thoughts and emotions were so raw and real
they hit me right into the heart
I needed some more time to love reading about Sebastian
but in the end also enjoyed the time I spent with him
I thought that the development of the story fit to both characters and their lifes
I liked the ending
it was one that answered some open questions
and made me happy
but of course I would have loved a longer epilogue
set some time in the future
because I'm a sucker for over the top and cheesy epilogues
Autoboyography is one of the best books I read in the last months
and I'm very happy that I read it despite my doubts.
