Blurb:
Old hurt runs deep…

After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.

Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.

Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.

Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the sexy smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug ass.

And he kept coming back for more.

I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.

Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.

But some wounds refuse to heal.





MY THOUGHTS

I have been following  Desireé's Youtube channel for a while now and when I read the description of her book I knew this is one I had to read because it sounded so good. 

I am so happy I read Sweet Insanity because oh my gosh was it so good.

I read this book pretty quickly because I just couldn't put it down. 

If you are looking for a good sexy book with angst I do highly recommend this book. 

I can't wait for Desireé's next book.

I give this 4 out of 5.

Little Women #Movie #MarchFamily #MovieReview

Sisters—and dreams—are unique in their ability to inspire, encourage and change the
world.
For 150 years, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has motivated women of all ages to dream together and celebrate family. Coming to theaters for the first time, a modern retelling of LITTLE WOMEN brings a new generation together with their mothers, sisters and friends.
From girls playing in the attic to women living with purpose, the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—are committed to always supporting each other. Yet, growing up
sometimes means growing apart.
An aspiring writer, Jo leaves for New York determined to publish a novel. In the wake of rejected draft upon draft, her editor challenges Jo to write about something more interesting—her family.
When tragedy brings the sisters back home, sticking together takes on new meaning. As Jo comforts her sick sister, Beth asks for one thing: a story.
Jo knows the perfect one … by heart.
Starring Lea Thompson as Marmee and featuring a talented cast, including Lucas Grabeel and Ian Bohen, LITTLE WOMEN tells the story of the same beloved sisters to a new generation. Celebrating dreams, family and unconditional love, LITTLE WOMEN opens in theaters this fall.

Little Women is now in theaters





MY THOUGHTS


I have to admit that I have not read the book so I can't really compare the book and movie but I do know that this movie is a modern retelling so of course there will some differences. 

Anyway, I admit that I very much enjoyed the movie even though this is not the kind of movie I usually watch.  It is well done and it made me happy and sad. It was entertaining and kept me watching.  

Just after watching this movie I have added the book to my long to be read pile and I made the plan to read the book very soon. 

I am giving this a 4 out of 5 .

The past is called the past for a reason. Two years, four months, and three days ago, I walked away from my life to save myself. I’ve moved on, but never forward.

Excerpt
“You claiming her?” He asks, a serious tone in his voice.
I turn fully and meet his eyes. “If she’ll let me.”
“And if she won’t?” he asks, his face firm and unyielding.
“I’m still fucking claiming her,” I say, my lips twisting into a smile.
He laughs and holds out his hand to me. “Welcome to the family, brother.”
“Yeah, let’s see what she has to say about that,” I say, taking his hand and shaking it.
“She still hate you?” Daisy asks with a snigger.
“Sometimes she thinks she does, yeah.”

Excerpt

Maybe it was the stress of the past two weeks or the emotional roller coaster I had been on, but somehow, I managed to fall asleep. I peeled my eyes open at the vibration of a closing door. The last twenty-four hours came rushing toward me, and I shot straight up in…bed? What the hell? I tried to process where I was. The room was small, and there was a thin layer of dust covering everything. The bed and a two-drawer dresser were the only items in the room. There was a bathroom in the corner and a closet. Call me crazy, but I thought I’d be in some basement chained to a wall, not waking up in a bedroom that smelled like—I sniffed in deep and placed the scent—pancakes. I flipped the covers off and looked down at my clothes. Nothing had been removed but my shoes. I quietly moved around the room checking things out. I leaned down and pulled open the top drawer of the dresser to find a set of clean clothes. Weird. They were my size. I couldn’t help but think this was much like Savannah’s moment when she awoke in the safe house, only she was safe. I was not. Or was I? It was a giant mind fuckery of an event. I raced to pull on the fresh clothes and hopped on one foot to the window and tried to push it open. Two nails stuck out on the sides, keeping it locked it in place. I tried the other in the bathroom, and it was the same. Locked. Shadows moved under the door, alerting me I was about to have company. I looked around for something to use as a weapon, but all I came across was a bottle of water on the dresser. Slowly, the door handle turned, and there stood Allen in his church collar. “Holy Lucifer,” shot from my trembling lips as I fell captive to his stare. Part of me wanted to cry. Allen was like an older version of Trigger, but just as you felt remotely comfortable, the devil would flicker across his pupils and remind you of the darkness that filled his soul. “No, not Lucifer, but if you care to bare your soul, I’m listening, Tessa.” “Tess,” I corrected him. He tugged on his collar before he stepped into the room. He looked around like he was approving how nice it was. “Look,” he bent down and sat on the arm of the chair, “I’m not in the business of kidnapping. Never really cared for it, so most were dead by hour four.” He shrugged. “But what I do care about is taking back what’s mine.” “Which is?” I folded my arms to hide the shakes. “Devil’s Reach and to return the favor my son so lovingly did for me.” His head slowly rose, and a smug smile played across his dry lips. “So, how do Gus and I fit into this?” “Gus doesn’t. He was just being Gussy. Always had a moral probe stuck up his ass for the ones he cared about. He’s like a tick that burrows into your skin and attaches itself to your veins and never leaves unless you either cut off its head or force it from your body.” “And me?” His eyes widened. “You, Tessa,” he slowed my name down, “you’re my son’s weakness, my ace in this game. You,” he pointed to me, “will be mine.” “Ha!” burst out of my mouth before I could stop it. “Not a chance. I don’t do seniors.” He licked his lips, annoyed at my comment. “As flattered as I am you thought I would consider you, I don’t do hand-me-downs.” He brushed the arm of his jacket free from dust. “When I say mine, I actually mean…” He paused and glanced at the door. I followed his line of sight to Zay standing there in jeans and a fisherman’s knit sweater, wearing the same blank expression he always did when he was around me. What? “Now that we have that cleared up…” He stood, and I saw the blood on his cuff. He noticed and raised his cuff to get a better look. “Rick was a fighter.” Nice. “Tessa,” he purred out my name, “don’t bother running. You have no shoes, and the cornfield will slice your feet to pieces.” He smacked Zay on the shoulder as he left. “All yours.” Not a chance. “Hungry?” Zay asked quietly. “No.” “Can I get you anything?” “A lift to town.” I dripped with sarcasm. He gave an amused smile. “We’ll grow on you.” “Like a tapeworm, maybe, or a tick.”   He unfolded his arms and dropped them heavily to his sides. He stepped into the room and stopped a few feet from me. “He’ll only take so much lip, Tess, and me too.” “Good to know.” I folded my arms. “Trigger might like it—” I slapped him across the face with my open palm. Trigger’s name was too hard to hear right now. I sucked in a sharp breath, waiting for him to react. He closed his eyes for a moment, waiting for the sting to pass. I knew because my hand hurt like a bitch. “I won’t sleep with you, Zay,” I muttered to fill the silence. He stepped back and stood in the doorway. “Like I said, we’ll grow on you. Now, let’s go.”

MY THOUGHTS

First off I want to say that the books in the Misadventure series can be read any way you want because they all are stand-alone books.

All these books are hot and sexy and are short so it doesn't take long to read.

Misadventures with a Speed Demon is a good book.  I loved the chemistry between Faith and Brookes.

The storyline was good but it wasn't my favourite book in this series. 

I give this one 3 1/2 out of 5
