Pretty Little Liars Bk 1

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard is a series of young adult books that's also a tv show on abc family. There are 18 books in the entire series. 


"Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead."

The first book is about five best friends: Spencer, Alison, Aria, Emily, and Hannah. Alison is the "it" girl. She's the girl everyone dreams they could be. One night at a sleep over Alison goes missing after an argument with one of her friends. She disappears and her four friends were the last ones to see her before she disappeared. 


A few years pass and the girls are now juniors in high school and Alison still hasn't returned. The girls have gone their separate ways and don't think they will ever be as close as before. When a body is found in Alison's old backyard, the girls think everything is over and they can move on. But something brings them together again. Texts from someone who knows everything Alison knew and more.

Wrecked

Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Wrecked by Priscilla West was a 5 star read for me. Everything about this book was good. It's the first installment of Lorrie and Hunter. The ending is a cliff hanger.

Two years ago Lorrie's mother was murdered by her husband, Lorrie's stepdad. After a downward spiral of depression, Lorrie's father commits suicide. Returning to college after taking three semesters off, Lorrie just wants to get through the semester in one piece. 

Lorrie meets Hunter when he saves her from a near death experience. Hunter is a cage fighter who is just as broken as Lorrie. They forge an unlikely friendship without sharing anything about their pasts. As their friendship grows, they become inseparable and finally begin dating. Can they be together when they both have troubled pasts?

I loved this book. Lorrie and Hunter take their friendship slow. Some people may say it took too long for their relationship to grow, but it is just the right amount …

Beautiful Surrender

ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Secret Surrender by Priscilla West is book 3 of 3. The books should be read in order.
Book 1: Forbidden Surrender
Book 2: Secret Surrender
Book 3: Beautiful Surrender


This story begins where Secret Surrender left off. It begins with Kristen attempting to come to terms with who just landed on her doorstep. She is confused about what is happening. The first chapter gives you insight on Kristen's past and what happened with her ex boyfriend Marty. I was happy to see Kristen grew a bit of a backbone in this story. 

This book had the most angst,and suspense then the other two before this. It was perfect for me. This is what makes a book good and enjoyable. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It was a real page turner and one of the best erotica books I've read since Fifty Shades.

Vincent was well developed in this book. He was caring and showed he truly cared about Kristin and his family. We see a side of him we haven't seen y…

Secret Surrender by Priscilla West is book 2 of 3. The books should be read in order.
Book 1: Forbidden Surrender
Book 2: Secret Surrender
Book 3: Beautiful Surrender

This was a quick read and the characters just keep getting better and better. Vincent is a down to earth billionaire who is willing to keep a relationship with Kristan even though he travels most of the time. Kristan continues to work while Vincent travels but she ends up missing him more than she thought she would. But Vincent is willing to try to make it work and have to travel less so he can be with Kristan.

I love how the information about Kristan's past is spread out and shown sporadically instead of told us all at once. It helps build her character and makes the book a better read. 

Kristan has a past and Vincent has an ex that shows up. The two together can cause a whirlwind of downward spirals, but surprisingly it doesn't. They both know how to handle th…

Forbidden Surrender by Priscilla West

I loved the characters. Kristen was a strong character who has a mysterious past. I'm curious to find out more about her past in the next book. 

Kristen meets Vincent Sorenson on a business trip to South Africa. Vincent was a potential client and Kristen is nervous about meeting him. As soon as she meets him, she can't get him off her mind.

Vincent Sorenson is a hot billionaire. When he meets Kristen, he doesn't take no for an answer. He pursues her. He doesn't turn into a stalker or force her to go on a date with him. His bad boy persona and hot looks make Kristen want him more than when she first meets him.

This is a wonderful first book and really sets up the setting for their relationship. It brings us into Kristen's world and shows us what her life is like before a serious relationship. It was an easy, short read that I couldn't put down. A serious page turner…
