Sunday KU Spotlight by KUBR + OCA

Hey, KUbbies and Addicts! Welcome back to the KU Sunday Spotlight by KUBR + One-Click Addict!  Here are two new great Read Its to add to your TBR today!


RATING: READ IT {Mila} – Don’t you just love when you finish a book and are left with a goofy, satisfied grin on your face? And you wish you could go back and read some of the sweetest parts all over again for the first time? Yeah, me too and Sweet Sunshine by Jessica Prince is one of those books.

I’d recently gone through a number of 5-star reads and, as is bound to happen, I then read book after book after book where I felt just so-so. Having an all-KU blog has turned out to be a huge blessing, because oftentimes, when my blogger friends come across a KU read that they love, they let me know about it. This was one of those times. My friend Amy from Garden of REden reached out to me last night with two new titles and after a few days of meh, I was SO ready for a really good read.

Sweet Sunshine is the story of Chloe + Derrick. Chloe fell for Derrick the moment he moved to town, but Derrick, having been married to what amounts to the female version of Satan, was sour on relationships. The writing is so subtle that him finding his path to his discovery of Chloe never felt forced or like I was reading a story. It was crafted so well.

There are a number of peripheral characters that I loved, including Chloe’s best friend, Harlow. It turns out that Harlow had her own book prior to Sweet Sunshine called Wildflower, from Ms. Prince’s Colors series, which I will definitely be reading. And, this review would not be complete if I didn’t mention Eliza, Derrick’s daughter, who you will fall in love with along the way too.

If you’re looking for a well-written, classic romance novel grab this one. That goofy grin? Yep, it’s still on my face.


RATING: READ IT {Robyn} – Sometimes it’s hard to NOT judge a book by its cover. Really, truly this not my normal motivation behind reading a book. I’m that person that sees the cover, reads the blurb, checks out the reviews and maybe, possibly (though not admitting anything here), stalks the author’s Facebook page to learn a little bit more about the person behind the pages. If all the stars align, I’m in for the journey. So you see, I’m a simple girl with simple needs to read.

I will admit that the cover for Carian Cole’s Torn (Devil’s Wolves Book 1) hooked me like I’ve never been hooked before. I clicked the “Read for Free” button in Kindle Unlimited like my index finger was on fire and that button was the only way to quench the flame. If I’m going to burn, what a lovely book to take me down in the heat!

Torn is the story of forbidden love. Like one of the top three big reasons to NOT fall in love with someone.  Over the years, with famous travelling rock stars for parents, Kenzi was often left in Toren’s care. Who would have believed the once tiny baby would grow into the woman destined to be with Toren? But love of an “uncle,” a parental figure, combined with a 15-year age difference and fear of destroying the relationships between Toren, Kenzi and Kenzi’s dad, Asher (Toren’s best friend since childhood) may be too much to overcome the deepest love.

This was my first Carian Cole read and what a great way to start! While the first of the Devil’s Wolves books (the greatest MC club of any book I’ve read to date), it’s also a spinoff of her Ashes & Embers series. Ember + Asher are Kenzi’s parents, teenage sweethearts who found love and success, but their story calls out to the reader in Torn to pick up the books and learn more of the history. While they each have a presence in Torn, it’s not necessary for the first time reader to the series to start with the original series. I will admit though, the cover of Storm (Ashes & Embers book 1) is SO hot I feel the need to burn some more!

As of 9.11.16, Sweet Sunshine and Torn are available on Kindle Unlimited.
