Review: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

Anything involving country music is a must read for me. I loved this book just as much as I hoped I would. Reagan O’Neill and Lilah “Dee” Montgomery had been friends long before Lilah hit the big time. So the summer before her senior year, Reagan decides to join Dee on tour. After Dee is “involved” in a scandal, her record company ends up adding Matt Finch as her opening act in order to generate speculation about the two of them being an item. It becomes complicated when Reagan and Matt start falling for each other. The best part of the novel wasn’t the romance. As good as that was, it didn’t hold a candle to the friendship between Reagan and Dee. I can honestly say that they are my favorite pair of friends that I’ve ever read about. They have each others backs through thick and thin. Nothing was going to come between them, which is refreshing to read in a YA book. Reagan is a troublemaker. She’s the type of girl that rumors are spread about and nasty things written about on bathroom stalls. Her choices in guys has been less than spectacular. After a particularly bad experience with a boy, she decides she’s going to reinvent herself. She’s going to be a New Reagan. By going on tour with Dee, she thinks it will be easier to […]

Review: Better Than Perfect by Simone Elkeles

Favorite Quote(s): “Seriously, Ashtyn, I bet my left nut you wouldn’t even notice if I got your dog fixed.’ ‘Your left nut?’ I ask. ‘Why not your right one? Guys never say they’ll bet their right nut, only their left. Why is that?’ ‘Because all guys know their right nut is the dominant one, so bettin’ the left one is a safe choice. Now don’t change the subject and answer my question.’” “When her boyfriend kissed her outside, I didn’t miss the silent ‘f**k you, she’s mine’ vibe he sent me. Ashtyn is oblivious. The guy obviously thinks he’s God’s gift to the universe, with his black Corvette convertible and dark sunglasses he doesn’t even take off when he’s kissing her. That’s like keeping your socks on when you’re having sex—complete douche move. I’m surprised Ashytn fell for that kind of guy, whose car is an extension of his d*ck.” “‘You want to break the rule?’ He nods slowly. ‘Yeah.’ ‘Why?’ ‘Because I’m tryin’ to push you away when all I want to do is hold you. I know you say you don’t want a hero, but damn I’d like to be that guy who’ll save you from spiders and whatever and whoever else hurts you.’” Favorite Character: Derek. I LOVE HIM!! First Line: “Getting caught wasn’t part of the plan.” My Musings: Now I’ve read some of Simone Elkeles’ […]
