Bully by Penelope Douglas (Fall Away #1)

Published May 22, 2014 by crysbookreviews

My name is Tate. He doesn’t call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all. No, he’ll barely even speak to me.

But he still won’t leave me alone.

We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. I’ve been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

But I’m done hiding from him now, and there’s no way in hell I’ll allow him to ruin my senior year. He might not have changed, but I have. It’s time to fight back.

I’m not going to let him bully me anymore.

I know its been a while and well I am just getting back into the swing of things with reviewing but this book..was amazing. I kinda loved and hated Jared so much for everything that happened with Tate. There wasn’t much about this book that didn’t just hook me.

Even though Jared could be a HUGE ass to Tate, he definitely had his moments and his reasons. Okay so his reasons were completely understandable but not at the same time. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t do similar stuff at his age. Their relationship throughout the book grew into something amazing.

I especially love how Tate is big into racing and cars. Not many girls are depicted that way in books, actually in all the books I have read I think she may be the only one that I have read like that. I enjoyed her friendships and relationship with her dad, she is definitely loyal.

I remember I picked this book out based on a whim and figured I would give it a shot and I can tell you I was not disappointed in it at all. I have actually re-read this book I believe I am on my 4th time 🙂 I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Empty Net by Toni Aleo (Assassins #3)

Published September 27, 2012 by crysbookreviews

Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.

Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.

Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanley Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.

But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.
Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net? From Goodreads.

Oh my god, she did it again!!! There isn’t a book of Toni’s that I haven’t fallen in love with. I am so happy I gave her books a chance. This time around it was Tate and Audrey’s story. Now I loved Audrey in the last book and I thought Tate sounded adorable. I also wanted to smack the crap out of her for dating and putting up with Levi. She is way, way too good for him.

Luckily she got drunk and hooked up with Tate. Of course, she was stupid and decided to leave the next morning with out exchanging any kind of info. She eventually figures out who he is. I mean it was bound to happen since Tate is Lucas’ best friend. It also didn’t help that he was also her neighbor!

Now do you see why I love Toni? Her books are so amazing that they are, as of right now, the only adult books I have reviewed on my blog. But I felt that everyone should go out and buy all 3 books right now. There was so much to their relationship, her issue with his age, his family, her background, her physical and emotional issues. I was sooo happy that eventually everything came out and they were in a happy committed relationship together.

Eventually Audrey was given AMAZING news and when she got home to get ready to tell Tate about it, she ran into Levi and things went downhill from there. I won’t give anything away about what happens between the 3 of them because it was crazy horrible and awesome all at the same time.

I can’t wait for the 4th book in the series just so I can reread these books.

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Waiting on Wednesday!!!

Why am I waiting for it?

I loved the first two books in the series and I can’t wait to find out if Audrey gets the happily ever after that she deserves since she helped her sister raise her nephew when she was only 20. I don’t know much about Tate but he seemed like a great kid in the last book, and I want him to be perfect for her. I know I usually do YA but Toni has me hooked with her books. Luckily according to Goodreads, this book comes out on September 5th.
