“Beg” by CD Reiss left me Begging for More!

This is a Series book but what is different is that it is set up like a TV series in that it’s short, the ending is a cliffhanger for the next book and it’s fast moving and action packed.  

This is the first in the “Songs of Submission” series by CD Reiss whom I have never read before but so glad I did!  In this first book we are introduced to Monica; a singer/songwriter struggling to make in in the music business and survive financially on waitress jobs.  Then there is Jonathan, the “bazillionaire” that seems to like Monica from the start as she is the newest waitress at his restaurant.  Jonathan seems to be still hung up on his ex-wife Jess and Monica is not looking for any complications while pursuing her music career.  Will Monica beg for Jonathan’s attention????

C.D. Reiss, I like your concept and the way that your ending the books on questions and what ifs for the next book.  You’ve hooked me, that’s for sure.  

Great start to the series.  I liked the interaction and the build up of all the supporting characters.  I can sense some really serious moments coming in the next books and I can’t wait to read them all.

I would give this a solid 4 star review.  A big thank you to Netgalley for providing me with the ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

Swooning over “Forever My Girl” by Heidi McLaughin

Liam’s life is all spelled out for him.  He goes to college on a football scholarship.  He marries his high school sweetheart and they live happily in Beaumont.  Unfortunately, he has a personal dream that he must follow but he’s not sure that pursuing his dream will be understood and accepted by the love of his life, Josie.  So…he leaves her.  

Ten years later, he comes back to say goodbye to his best friend Mason who died in a car accident.  All his emotions are in turmoil.  He convinced himself 10 years ago that he had made the right decision for everyone but now he is not so sure after discovering all that he left behind in Beaumont which turns out to be far more than what he thought he left.

This is a story about a teenage love that was crippled by chance and fear. All it takes though is one look and JoJo is questioning her commitment to her fiance and the life she has lived for ten years. Will she stick with her life as it was after Liam left town or will she take a chance and admit her love for Liam has never diminished.

This was a great story; a solid 4 stars.  It moved at a good speed to keep me interested and had enough of a love triangle to make it intense enough to turn the next page.  Liam is kind of a calm rockstar though.  I would have liked to see a bit more hard core rocker and bad boy come out.  It was a sweet love story and I found it to be refreshing.

I also liked the way that the reader introduced the main characters of her next book and started the story line at the end of this book.  I off to read it now, can’t wait to share my thoughts with you on that one too.
