That’s just life… Well, let’s not dilly dally any longer and get to my First Lines Fridays pick today. I have a good feeling most of you will guess this one.

I like to save things. Not important things like whales or people or the environment. Silly things. Porcelain bells, the kind you get at souvenir shops. Cookie cutters you’ll never use, because who needs a cookie in the shape of a foot? Ribbons for my hair. Love letters. Of all the things I save, I guess you could say my love letters are my most prized possession.

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control

Okay, so if you’ve been following me for a while, then you probably know that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is one of my favorite YA contemporary series. I loved it when it was still a duology and when Han announced she was writing a third book, I was excited and scared at the same time. I just really loved how it ended in the 2nd book that I was afraid it might not end well this time so I’ve been putting off reading the last book. Well, with the movie coming out TODAY on Netflix, I wanted to reread the first two books and FINALLY read Always and Forever Lara Jean. My friends and book buddies have been telling me I’ll love it, so I think it’s time I finally let go of the past ending and see how Lara Jean and Peter’s story concludes.


Have you read this book or series? What did you think? Will you be watching the movie today? I’m actually going to watch it with my brother’s gf. I introduced her to the series and she really loved it so they’re coming over today so we can AWWW AND SWOON over Lara Jean and Peter. I cannot wait to get off work and go home…

Thanks for stopping by and reading lovelies! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend!!!

Every breath and every heartbeat and every minute of every day was spent waiting for you,” Reyna whispered against his skin.

His perfect skin. The hard-muscled chest, the cold feel to him, the awareness of his body pressed against hers. She had waiting so long for this. So very long.

“Becks,” she said. She ran her hands against his jaw and forced him to look down at her. A bottomless sea of onyx enveloped her. “Say something.”

“I love you,” he said like a prayer.

Genre(s): Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Kindle Edition, 1st edition
addongoodreads
As the provocative, sensual Blood Type series continues, the rare bond between Reyna and Beckham is threatened by betrayal, greed, and twisted secrets.
A desperate human. A powerful vampire. A world divided.
Reyna Carpenter was promised paradise. She was delivered into hell.
Giving up her body for money was supposed to be the hardest part of becoming a blood escort. She never expected to lose her heart to her dark, enigmatic boss, Beckham Anderson. After being taken by a depraved captor who plans to rule the world, Reyna will do anything to return to Beckham.
She just has to find the will to survive this game.
From the pawn, rises a queen.

I absolutely loved reading Blood Type and when it ended with that crazy cliffhanger, I couldn’t wait to take another bite of this dark and delicious series. Blood Type was dangerously fun, pleasantly tantalizing, and so incredibly sexy. I was addicted and so enamored by the world building, the characters and the story line. I am so damn excited to start reading Blood Match this weekend and cannot wait to see what happens next with Beckham and Reyna.

booksintheseries

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

The stunning conclusion to the Blood Type series finds the world in chaos and turmoil with one final battle left to determine who will survive—humans or vampires.

She had the world on her shoulders. Now she has nothing.

Reyna Carpenter was twenty-one when she became a live-in blood escort for the ruthless and darkly handsome vampire Beckham Anderson. She thought this was just a small price to pay for feeding her brothers back home.

But nothing went as planned. Not even her tumultuous relationship with Beckham. And now she wonders if anything will ever be the same again.

As she finds herself in the midst of a losing rebellion, she and her trusted friends must flee from a city conquered by the vampire elite. With their plans blown to pieces and everything they knew and loved gone, their future hangs in the balance.

Despite all she has lost, Reyna must rise from the ashes, reclaim the life that was stolen—and complete her mission, once and for all.
