ARC Review-- Trophy Wife by Alessandra Torre


34775559
Everyone in Nashville knows Nathan Dumont. That’s what happens when you develop half a town and sleep with the rest. 
Four years ago, his fiancee disappeared. 
Last night, he proposed to me.

I had wanted to escape my life, the seedy strip club and the mountain of bills. I had seized the opportunity to live in a mansion, fill my days with country clubs and caviar, my nights with romance and sex.

Maybe I should have done my homework first.

After reading Hollywood Dirt and Love in Lingerie by AT, I had become her die hard fan so naturally I had some great expectations from Trophy wife. After reading the Blurb I was really excited to read the book but as soon as I started with it, all of my expectations just went into sort and I was left a little disheartened. I haven't read the prior version not this book but I was damn sure that I was hoiya to like this one, the title alone intrigued me but I guess I was wrong this time.

The story revolves around Nathan and Candace. Nathan is as rich as they come but there are some crises due to which his money gets locked. Candace is a stripper who regrets her life decisions. Once upon a time she had everything but when her father got sick, she was left with nothing except of an event management degree that had no use for her because of her low GPA. So all in all, she was a spoiled brat who had no care of what she had and thereby turning into a stripper to survive.

Nathan approaches Candace with an offer of a contract marriage. Candace has no choice else than to accept it in order to leave her stripper lifestyle and help her father become better by shifting him into a better facility.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicLife as a trophy wife? Piece of a freaking cake. 

Nathan has his own reasons to marry Candace. I don't want to spoil the plot for you so I am not revealing much. As the story proceeds their attraction towards each other increases thereby making it hard to ignore. Nathan's hard and heartless attitude makes Candace lonely and thereby she starts fucking his bodyguard for some extra attention. I mean that just takes out all the romance from a romance novel. Cheating is a huge no for me in romance novels. As Candace comes to know more about Nathan, secrets are revealed and hearts are broken. Will they ever get their happily ever after.

So in a nutshell, this was an average read for me... I didn't like it  much.. the characters were just sort of vague. I didn't see any sort of character development. It was a romance novel but there was no connection between the characters other than the sec part. In my opinion the characters were just downright irritating. The plot/storyline was amazing but the way it was written or the scenes were depicted or I don't know what didn't really appeal to me but this book was definitely not for me.

All in all this book wasn't for me with all the cheating and irritating characters. I hope to read other books from AT because one book doesn't take her out from my favourite authors list.

Nathan- 3 Stars
Candace- 2.5 Stars
Supporting characters- 2 Stars
Plot- 3.5 Stars
Storytelling- 4 Stars
Sexual tension- 5 Stars
Story ending- 5 Stars

Darkness-- Low Focus
Humor-- Low Focus
Romance-- Low Focus
Action- Low Focus

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

REVIEW-- Ira Oberoi's Pursuit of Love by Niti Chopra

Sparkling and zesty with a dash of green, a Virgin Mojito is a unique blend up and Ira is one lucky girl to have found her Mojito – tall and handsome with green eyes, he is in every definition the intoxication for her. In a twist of tales, the traditional concept of the boy wooing the girl goes for a toss. Smitten at first sight, she boldly pursues her love interest, every bit candid and upfront about it. 

But what is a concoction if not for a heady mix of elements? Her descriptive personal diary falls in the hands of her mother who, on the verge of a cardiac arrest, forbids her from getting into a relationship with the guy she has fallen for.  Will Ira stand up for the love that she has found?Or will she be the ideal daughter and keep the promise for her mother’s sake? 

Will hers be a love story that finds it difficult to have a sweet ending or will it be the perfect fairytale to be remembered down the years?
Will Ira Oberoi’s Pursuit of Love be successful?

1. Devil In Winter (Wallflowers #3) By Lisa Kleypas
Some Quotes From Devil In Winter “Mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic. Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together.”  --------------
“If my love can hold you, I'll keep you with me.”
--------------
“Ah, Evie,” she heard him say softly, “I must have a heart, after all…because right now it aches like the devil.”
“Only your heart?” she asked ingenuously, making him laugh.
He lowered her to the bed, his eyes sparkling wickedly. “Also a few other things,” he conceded. “And as my wife, it’s your duty to ease all my aches.”

Plaza Requiem: Stories at the Edge of Ordinary Lives by Martha Batiz

Mexican-Canadian Martha Batiz has crafted, in her first collection written in English, visceral stories with piercing and evocative qualities. She has filled her recognizable, sisterly/motherly, and imaginative characters with qualities we all hold close to our hearts, but this is powerfully juxtaposed by the uncertainty that lurks at the edges of ordinary lives. Most often they are women, trapped in violent relationships, facing dangerous political situations, or learning to live with the pain of betrayal. Yet Batiz's stories shimmer with the emotional surge of vindication, evoking the rewards women attain after a powerful exploration of their darkest moments. As an emerging writer, Batiz crafts her stories with qualities reminiscent of Joyce Carol Oates, Shirley Jackson, and Cuban author Leonardo Padura: with precision, haunting vision, and the will to survive all odds.
