The Man She Married by Alison James

Netgalley book review

The Man She Married by Alison James
Y’all! This book is absolutely AMAZING!

If you have been through a crappy relationship, you will understand why Alice ignores the signs she should have noticed before.  The first half of the book you know there is something fishy about Dominic, but you just can’t put your finger on what it is.
Then all of a sudden out of nowhere the twist is amazing.
This book will definitely keep you om your toes and you don’t want to put it down.

This was my first Alison James read, but i will be reading more!

Book Review: Down the Rabbit Hole by Holly Madison

Down The Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny by Holly Madison
I’m late on posting this one 😂

I picked up this book on sale at Barnes and Noble about a year ago. I usued to watched Girls Next Door religiously and instantly fell in love with Holly because she is so relatable and actually seemed real. I had it on the shelf unread, so when my book club pick came along I figured it was the perfect time to read.

After this book, I have an entire new respect for this woman.

This book starts it with how she got into the Playboy world, tells you her story about her time in the mansion, tells you about friends and enemies, and when she finally had enough.

After reading this and realizing what the camera did not show, I am in awe of how brave she was when she realized enough is enough. I am in awe of how even when she ended up in another controlling relationship, she decided she deserved better even though that was all she knew.

This book teaches you that reality TV and fame doesn’t always come with glitz and glamour. It teaches you that your self worth and your value is the most important thing.

And if you bust your ass, you can get wherever you want to be no matter what you come from.

I feel like every girl trying to find who she is in her early 20s should read this 💜

Book Review: Midnight Bayou

Nora Roberts: Midnight Bayou

4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved The Obsession so much, I decided to give another Nora Roberts book a try.
I went to my favorite small town book store, The Book Called, and went through the shelves full of books to find this one.
I have a soft spot for Louisiana plantations and haunted history so this one caught my eye.

I only give it 4 out of 5 stars because it took awhile to get me sucked into it. The beginning did need to happen because it started with the history of the house and what happened there.

I related to Lena very well in this story.  She was a strong willed woman with her walls up & absolutely loved her.

Delcan was an amazing main character. He had a way with Lena and with the house that drew me in.

This boom had the perfect mix of mystery, suspense, and romance.

I think she could do a romantic follow-up with this book, I would love to see it.

Book Review: Pretty Revenge

Another Book club pick 💓

This was my first Emily Liebert book, and I absolutely loved it.
I have been learning about a lot of great authors since joining this book club.

I could not put this book down! I had to know what was going to happen next. First I had to know what exactly happened to make her seek revenge. Once I got past that I had to know how she was going to get it and the exact way she was going to go about it! There was a couple nights I had to force myself to put the boom down so that I could get some sleep 😂
I was definitely team Kerrie on this! It reminded me a little bit of a Miranda Lambert song, except it isn’t a man Kerrie is going after.

I also love the way the book ended 💓

Emily Liebert was kind enough to face time in our book club meeting and she was absolutely amazing! Such a beautiful soul & I can’t wait to read Perfectly Famous coming in June 💓

Pressure cooker Mississipi Pot Roast

My first Roast ever 😍
Of course the instant pot is my best friend! After a long day of touring reception venues yesterday, we wanted a good dinner that was pretty quick.
So I went to Pinterest. I found this amazing recipe 😍😍
The only thing I did different is add mushrooms and carrots.

I have the power pressure cooker XL and an instant pot & unpopular opinion, I prefer the power pressure cooker.

I will be trying more recipes from the blog I got this one from ❤

Bride Box #2 Review

My 2nd Bride Box was even better than the first! I definitely would recommend this subscription box to anyone! It would also make the perfect gift for the bride to be in your life.

The first item from this box was this super cute do not disturb door hanger!

I absolutely love the Mr & Mrs pillow cases! I Will be putting these to use.

My favorite item is the Just Married kitchen towel!

I have not tried the perfect pedi kit yet, but I can’t wait to. I also got a coupon in case I want to buy these for my bridal party boxes.

Last but not least, more lip gloss!

I can’t wait until this months box comes in to see what I get! It’s luke christmas everytime it comes in ❤

Book Review: The Obsession

Y’all 😱

I was a little nervous with this book because on Goodreads it has very mixed reviews. However, we have the cutest little used book store & it was only $4 💁

Immediately I was sucked in! Naomi was amazing within the first couple of chapters! Couple you imagine being the one to find your fathers rape victim and rescuing her? Espcially at 11 years old!

I loved the detail Nora Roberts brought in with her family. The uncles were my favorite part of the book.

She moves to a town she falls in love with and a beautiful house! Can I tell you how amazing the people in this small town are?!?!

Without giving away to much of the book, I will tell you I think I’m in love with Xander even though he is fictional 😂

On Goodreads some reviews are bad because of what some people think are unnecessary parts in the book, but I feel Nora Roberts was trying to give you full detail and make you fall in love with this town and the people in it. If you fall in love with characters like me, you will love that part of the book

I definitely recommend this book to anyone. This was my first Nora Roberts book, now I cant wait til the next one.

Bride Box #1

As a bride to be, I absolutely love all of the cheesy bride things! I heard about the bride box from a friend & had to subscribe myself! Now my wedding isn’t until February 2021 so I got the monthly subscription for 12 months.

This was my first box:

It came wrapped up so cute! I was excited as soon as I opened the box!

Let’s start with this super cute water bottle. Perfect for the gym or just going out with the girls.

2nd I got a wedding planner, I’m not the most organized person so this was perfect for me to try to get my stuff together.

These socks are one of my favorite things in the box! They are so,comfy and perfect for wedding dress shopping!

I got the liquid lips and a sheet mask with it too! I absolutely love a good sheet mask once a week to keep my skin glowing.

Then my absolute favorite part of the box! The floating drink holder shaped like a ring! Great for the pool and perfectly fits a can.

I would recommend the bride box to everyone!
