Hustler (Meghan Quinn & Jessica Prince)


I make my living as a hustler, and I’m great at it.
I don’t have a single tell and I use that to my advantage to manipulate any situation.
I’ve always known what a person is about to do before they’ve even decided. 

That is, until I met Penelope.
I can’t get a read on her, and what’s worse, she doesn’t want anything to do with me.
Which only makes me want her more. 

Now I’m in for the hardest hustle of my life.
Somehow I have to convince her she belongs with me.
Good thing I’m always up for a challenge.

First and foremost, I read this book with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much, so go to her blog in the next couple of days to read her take on this book.

Your know when the cover has very little to do with the story? Yeah, this is one of those cases.

I really enjoyed the writing on this one. The book is told in dual POV, from Gavin and Penelope’s POVs, and both their voices are funny as hell, and quite distinct – which is always welcomed when we have dual POV.

As characters, I liked both of them, though I have to say that no matter how awesome the banter and the interactions between Gavin and Nell were, Gavin was not my kind of guy. I liked that he was cocky and he knew how to play life, but he was just a little too much alpha for my liking. But I did love how Nell responded to him when he was being prissy, so it was kind of perfect. Penelope was feisty! 😀

The romance was fantastic! It was insta-attraction, for sure, but it was funny to see Nell trying to deny her feelings and seeing Gavin chase her around. It caused a lot of hilarious situations! Then it was good to see their layers peeling off, while they feel for each other. I was also a fan of the conflict and its resolve, because I like when the issues come from within – I’m weird! Also, OMG, was that HOT!

Just a side note to say how much I loved their friends!!! I’m sensing 2 more books coming our way, and I would be ecstatic to see it. I need a book about Page and Graham, because I need to know what the hell happened between them, and because Page is amazingly funny! And then I want to see Scott finally taming Davies, because I loved Scott!!

So, if you’re into the new adult genre, and like a little chase romance, give this one a chance! You’ll definitly have a great time reading it.

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book That Made Me Laugh!


Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “World’s Laughter Day was a few days ago. Choose a book that makes you laugh“. I read a lot of funny books, but most of them are NA books with only one cover, so I decided to use a non-fiction book for today. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari & Eric Klinenberg is a fantastic book and I highly recommend it.

Original COver:

This is the original US cover and I’ve become quite fond of it. I like that it has Aziz Ansari on the cover and that it showcases the subject. But having a famous person on the cover might lead a lot of people to believe that this is an autobiography, when in fact it is a sociological study.


This book hasn’t been released in either country yet.

Favorite COVER(s):

I love this cover! This is the Brazilian cover, and I think it’s just gorgeous and smart.



The first is the UK paperback cover, and I’m not a fan. I like the colors and all, but the use of an anatomical heart is just not my favorite thing… yeah, the book is about romance, but love has very little to do with the actual muscle. Then the Polish cover is just bad, it looks like a half assed attempt at something like the original cover… not good.
