Drew Elyse spends her days trying to convince the world that she is, in fact, a Disney Princess, and her nights writing tear-jerking and sexy romance novels.

When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found analyzing every line of a book, binge watching shows on Netflix, doing strange vocal warm ups before singing in a variety of musical styles, or screaming at the TV during Chicago Blackhawks games.

A graduate of Loyola University Chicago, she still lives outside Chicago, IL, where she was born and raised, with her boyfriend and her fur babies Lola and Duncan.

Book Blurb:

In a world of wealth and power, the rules of love and war are nothing as they seem.

Nora Randolph never wanted a life of luxury. But when her mother falls in love with the heir to the British throne, their small-town lives are uprooted and every little girl's fantasy becomes her reality. All too quickly, she learns the dangers of running in circles with the world's elite, especially when she attracts the attention of Winston Academy's resident golden boy.

Asher Frederick has known nothing but favor and fortune. The son of London's most influential family, his future has been written in stone since infancy. But a tragic childhood loss redirects his course, and revenge has been boiling in his blood for years. When innocent and unaware Nora lands in his path, it's as if the universe hands him the ammunition to finally drag his enemy through the mud.

But as his plan for vengeance gets more twisted, so do his feelings for Nora. And as her immersion into the upper crust dives deeper, she struggles to keep the secret she's been guarding for 18 years.

Heavy lies the crown, and when the ultimate betrayal blindsides her, will either of them survive the consequences that come crashing down on their heads?

Leave it to Carrie Aarons to put her own delightful twist on the high school mean boy type of book. Man, did she ever kill this book! I adored it! While I loved Asher and Nora’s story, I wanted to whip Asher’s butt… not sure if I mean that kinky of not! But he sure deserved a butt whopping! Now, thankfully he was... misinformed, we’ll say. Nora though, Nora was fantastic! She was just so innocent and sweet! I love her desire for life and learning.

Aarons always seems to give me the perfect amount of angst and romance. Plus, oh my… the FUN banter they had! I was so into this book! Thankfully, with a small glimpse into Asher’s life and the way he eventually cared for Nora… he won me over but he was walking a tight rope there for a while! Aarons is at the top of her game… her writing and story-telling is on point and couldn’t be any more consuming!

These narrators were perfect for their characters. Lauren Sweet sounds just like I’d expect for Nora. She sounds so innocent and soft spoken. There are times where she seems strong and determined, I really prefer her strength and thought Miss Sweet portrayed all her difference. Asher’s narrator, Shaun Grindell, gave a fantastic performance. I haven’t listened to him previously but that British accent was perfect!! I really enjoyed how he spoke and performed. I’m crossing my fingers for Elite to release on audiobook.



Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.

When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.

RELEASE DAY: Nothing Personal by Karina Halle

NP - RB Banner.jpg

It's just business, nothing personal.
Until you have to work with your ex.

Nothing Personal, an all-new standalone romantic comedy by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is live!

Nothing Personal AMAZON.jpg

Nova Lane is having the worst week possible. Her latest relationship ended while on her much-needed vacation, then upon her first day back at work, she learns that her beloved boss has quit – and despite having worked so hard for it, she's not being considered for his position.
Who is being considered for the position is none other than Kessler Rocha. Her ex-coworker and ex-lover, Kessler’s the man who broke her heart five years earlier and the reason she moved thousands of miles away, switched jobs, and created numerous voodoo dolls in Kessler’s (very burly, very handsome) liking.
Yup. Worst week ever.
New in town and on her turf, Kessler promises he’s not the same man he was – and considering he’s now a single father to a precocious toddler, he’s telling the truth.
But he’s still an arrogant, devilish and dangerously intelligent man who’s taking over the position Nova feels she deserves. The fact that he’s gotten even more sexy over the years doesn’t help either.
Now Nova and Kessler have the choice to let bygones be bygones, or fight with each other every chance they get, with unresolved sexual tension only adding fuel to the flames, creating a fire that might just burn down the whole office.
In the corporate world they say it’s just business, nothing personal.
Nova and Kessler are about to show just how personal things can get.

What an absolutely delightful story!!! Nothing Personal was sweet as pie! I don’t exactly feel like it was a full on RomCom but it did have some amazingly funny parts, but I did just finish a Meghan Quinn RomCom and she’s full on 12 year old boy humor. Anyway, the characters were perfection... well perfectly flawed and real! Poor Nova... can’t catch a break in the male area for anything! Kessler had me laughing out in surprise several times! Hunter stole my heart... his story... ugh! Poor kiddo, I just want to hug and love on him!! Well, you’ve got that... the characters are seriously adorns! I could t get enough of them!

I haven’t read but a few of Karina Halle’s books but this one will stick with me. Nothing Personal really covers the romance sub genres and I appreciate that... there’s even a bit of horror on Kessler’s side upon moving to Hawaii (ok, not really horror unless you were him!). Miss Halle really created a story that flowed so smoothly and the story seemed to ebb and flow until it was over! I’m always pleased when a story makes my heart feel it all and Nothing Personal definitely did that!!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

Top 15 Reads of 2018

2018 Top Reads

I have to tell you all; choosing top reads for 2018 was incredibly difficult! The amount of seriously fantastic work was insane! Even bumping my books from 10 of the Top Reads to 15 Top Reads of 2018, I feel like I’m missing a dozen of really friggin’ good books still… in fact, I know am! Looking through my Goodreads challenge for the year I probably had at least 100 5-Star books… at least 100. You authors really deserve some mad-props for the work you released this year! 

Now, I might slightly be cheating by including trilogies, series, and duets in my list but if they are on here that means the ENTIRE group of books were OUTSTANDING and stuck with me. 

I will mention that this list includes romance books only. Some I listened to on Audiobooks and some were read… all were amazing! I didn’t want to mingle my thrillers into this list as it would have been double as hard and this was difficult enough for me. I do hope if you haven’t read some of these books that you take a chance. Something about each storyline and/or character stuck with me.

Most of these books are in no particular order. I will let you know when I get to the Top Book of 2018 and the Runner Up! Click on the Title to see my Review. I'm also including Buy Links, right here!
