I'm so unsure how to rate Haunted Melody. I'm torn between a 3 and a 4 star rating. Honestly, Alyson Santos is usually a 5 star read for me. Her writing is lyrical. It's poetic. Even with this book. Her story telling is perfection. The blending of her words. The torment of Milo. His pain. I can't forget the actual lyrics either! This woman, she can write some insanely talented songs. Ones that I wish I could hear with Milo's gravely and gruff voice. Plus I have to say the entire storyline and twists in the book are fantastic ideas.

While this book had the signature feel of an Alyson Santos book, I was missing a few things. I loved the opening chapter but was a bit confused with what the actual story behind the house had to do with it being the landing zone for the dead. Did I miss a correlation here? I also spent the first 50% confused which really isn't a bad thing as that happens a ton lately with plot twists... I love a good surprise. Plus I really understand that we weren't supposed to know what was going on.

More than all that, I think my main issue is I didn't feel like I really got to know the characters. I felt like the character development was a bit off. Which, I feel horrible saying as I have loved every character from this author. I still can't think of Jesse without swooning. It also seemed like they were immediately in love. I'm all for some insta love when it's believable but this seemed too fast. I'm also aware that this is completely different from Miss Santos normal books. I was looking forward to that. I read a huge range of books and often skip from genre to genre because just romance is a bit too much love and happiness all the time (lol). I kind of wish she had stayed on the path of Grave Lady and not gone the love story route.

Anyway, at this point I'm rambling. It's hard to say you liked a story when you aren't sure if you did and I'm pretty much in the middle of the road. So much of it was good but it wasn't a fit for me. I will continue watching for this author. Her writing is truly beautiful and her stories are always unique.

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.

About Alyson Santos

I'm a writer, musician, and cat lover. I also have an alternative music obsession. Seriously, it's a real problem.
I write what needs to come out, whether it's pain, tears, or laughter. I write people and relationships, about the beauty and horror of what we do to ourselves and each other. I write Love. Vengeance. Compassion. Cruelty. Trust. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Darkness, and the incredible way humans destroy and heal each other.
I like to eradicate barriers, refusing to be confined by the laws of physics or limitations of reality. I will befriend a vast population of possibilities and introduce them in ways that might surprise you.

RELEASE DAY: Fluffy by Julia Kent

Title: Fluffy
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2019


An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent

It all started with the wrong Help Wanted ad. Of course it did.

I’m a professional fluffer. It’s NOT what you think. I stage homes for a living. Real estate agents love me, and my work stands on its own merits.

Sigh. Get your mind out of the gutter. 
Go ahead. Laugh. I’ll wait.

See? That’s the problem. My career has used the term “fluffer” for decades. 
I didn’t even know there was a more… lascivious definition of the term.
Until it was too late.

The ad for a “professional fluffer” 
on Craigslist seemed like divine intervention. My last unemployment check was in the bank. 
I was desperate. Rent was due. 
The ad said cash paid at the end of the day. The perfect job!

Staging homes means showing your best angle. The same principle applies 
in making a certain kind of movie. 
Turns out a “fluffer” doesn’t arrange decorative pillows on a couch.

They arrange other soft, round-ish objects. The job isn’t hard. Er, I mean, 
it is — it’s about being hard. 
Or, well… helping other people to be hard. Oh, man… And that’s the other problem. A man. No, not one 
of the stars on the movie set. 
Will Lotham – my high school crush. 
The owner of the house where we’re filming. 
In a vacation rental.

By the time the cops show up, what I thought was just a great house staging gig turned into a nightmare involving pictures of me with a naked star, Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.

My job turned out to be so much harder than I expected. But you know what’s easier than I ever imagined?
Having all my dreams come true.

I can’t be the only one thinking… “It’s so fluffy I’m going to die” everytime I read this title, right? I know I’ve totally just outted myself as a mom but really I think anyone with a sense of humor would love Despicable Me. Which that has nothing to do with this book besides sharing the name Fluffy with one of my favorite lines in the movie. However, this book could have totally made me die… with laughter! This is one of Julia Kent’s funniest books that I have read. Ok, so I’ve only read a handful of her books but this one was through the roof funny! She slayed this story!

I feel as though I laughed from the first word until the last word. Julia Kent is such a fun writer... I'd been in a bit of a rut lately. Everything feels like the same... but with Fluffy, nothing was what I expected! Mal makes this story. She’s just so darn likable. Plus it doesn't hurt that pretty much every book nerd that I know, such as myself, has dealt with a crush on the most popular boy in school before. Don’t we all wish to be seen? Speaking of the high school days, if you haven’t read the prequel Little Miss Perfect, than you just have to stop and grab it for free on Amazon. It’s a hoot and sets up Fluffy perfectly. You’ll get to know Mallory and Will a bit before they bump into each other in a hilarious way!

Mal’s friends were just too insane not to love! Everyone needs some besties to push them out of their comfort zones and that is just what Perky and Fiona do! Well that and seriously pick on her when she deserves it. I adored their dynamics. They were there for each other and supported each other. They were the best of friends. I’m beside myself with excitement that Perky’s story will be next. Kent’s writing and storytelling is just the best! You won’t be able to help yourself falling for this story, these characters!

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.


“I can't tonight. I have a date,” I blurt out, remembering David. The dating app. The asshole who isn't an asshole.

Yet. I haven't met him, so that judgment remains withheld.

“A date?” Will asks, intrigued.

“Yes. A date. You know, that thing where you go out with someone who has no intention of really getting to know you and you spend the entire time eating bread that doesn’t taste as good as your date claims and trying to decide whether to initiate rescue-text sequences with your mom.”

“That’s your idea of a date?”

“That is my actual experience of every date I’ve had since college.”

“You’re dating the wrong guys.” He holds my gaze for just a little too long. I look away.

“I have to keep fishing in the pond if I ever want to catch a different one.”

“If that’s the way you talk to your dates, I am beginning to understand why they all turn out so badly.”



“Don’t accuse me of being a bad date. I’m a great date! I Google the guy in advance and read his LinkedIn profile. I make sure I don’t wear super-tall heels in case he lied about his height on his dating profile. I pretend to care about all his hobbies and don’t reveal that I’m secretly tallying all the micro-aggressions he’s sending my way during appetizers and wine. And if he makes it to dessert, well–” I falter.

“You never make it to dessert, do you?” Will asks, eyebrows up. He drops them quickly, wincing.

“I–well–it’s not that I don’t. He doesn’t!”

“He ditches you?”

“No! No! It’s just that he always has a thing.”

“A thing?”

“A work emergency. Or a dog with a twisted bowel. Or a grandma in the ER.”

“How many guys used the twisted-canine-intestine thing?”
“Three.” I sit down and sag against his teenage desk, elbows sliding forward, fingers deep in my hair. “I looked it up. There’s an entire subreddit devoted to inventive ways to get out of a bad date.”

“And yet here you are.” He leans against the edge of his desk. “Trying again.”

“I’m a masochist.”

His eyes gleam. “Maybe you should start your dates with that line. ‘Hi. I’m Mallory Monahan. I’m a masochist.’ You’d definitely make it to dessert.”

Author Bio

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men's room toilet (and he isn't a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.

If you knew love would hurt you, would you fall?
If you knew love would leave you, would you let it go?
If you knew love could never be, would you try?
From bestselling author Randi Cooley Wilson comes a gut-wrenching love story about heartbreak, second chances, and letting go. The ifs that linger between the pages of this novel will break your heart and stay with you long after the final chapter.
Emerson Shaw thought she’d left her old life behind her, but when she returns home for her best friend’s wedding, she has no idea her past is waiting to reclaim her.
Dark and broken, Lincoln Daniels never wanted to find love. But when he met straight-laced Emerson, he fell. Hard. The only thing they seemed to have in common was an undeniable mutual attraction, but from the moment he laid eyes on her, there was something about her that called to him. Until he lost her.
Tormented by demons and consumed by dark desires, it took years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of their what ifs. Just when Emerson is finally ready to let go and stop existing in a past full of pain and regret, Lincoln returns, turning her life upside down. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly escalates, and the two soon realize that all the ifs lingering between them no longer matter.
If is a love story about two damaged people whose future depends on promises made in the past. What happens when two broken people meet, fall in love, and realize they can never be? What happens when all the what ifs no longer make sense? If you knew your heart would break, would you still fall? This book is intended for mature audiences.

Don’t fall in love with your client.

But the more time I spend attempting to find the perfect girl, the more I realize how much I want him for my own. What’s the harm if we give in for just one night?

I should have known that would never be enough.

I loved Willow and Reid! I love their friends to lover’s relationship, but more, I love them as they are… friends, they’re real. They aren’t just friends. They are the BESTEST of friends. Can you even image being best friends with your neighbor? It would be so amazing and reading all about Willow and Reid is fun and light. OK, so the first half was a bit slower than I’m used to with both these authors. Once they hit their stride through, they took off and I just held on to this fun and witty light romance turned emotional and a bit angsty with some definite romance!

Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow are amazing and creative together. They develop some of the best characters. Reid and Willow are full of fun and eventually they add in a bit more drama. Reid is completely swoonable! He’s funny and bluntly honest. I love his fiery passion. Willow is also fun and really light. She’s incredibly likable. I totally get her love of lists and schedules… it’s totally my thing. I love their drive and interest they both have but when these authors get them all tangled up… well they are fabulous!

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.
