Dirty Little Secret (Forbidden Desires #1) by Kendall Ryan Review

I finished Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan this morning. It was really good! 
4 Stars! 
Thanks to NetGalley for this arc. Dirty Little Secret is a contemporary and the first of an ADULT duology! 
I was reading this for the blue cover challenge of the Mermaid VS Dragons competition, which the mermaids are currently winning (YAAAAY)!!! 
Dirty Little Secret has a pretty basic plot where a girl, Emma, meets a guy, Gavin, and she falls for him. How does he feel for her, though? Does he think she's just a fling or something more?
There are a few speed bumps along the way for both Emma and Gavin, like Emma's ex boyfriend and Gavin's past coming into the story. Also Gavin's brother, Cooper fancies Emma too. Do Emma and Gavin end up together or does one of the speed bumps corrupt their romance. You'll have to read to find out...
I don't want to put any quotes because the plot is really simple and it would spoil the story if I did, I think. 
What did I like about Dirty Litt…

Leave The Night On (CottonBloom #4) by Laura Trentham Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
How are you all today? 
I've just finished "Leave The Night On", another great contemporary book! It's still summer, right? ☀️. 
4.5 Stars! I think people would like this if they like ADULT small town romances, fun/caring characters with substance, and a decent plot.
NOTE: Leave The Night On is an adult read due to sexual content and lying/scheming.
Leave The Night On is book 4 in the Cottonbloom series. I didn't know this before I looked on Goodreads, after I had requested it on NetGalley. It luckily works as a stand alone, though. Netgalley should really tell those requesting books where the book comes in the series, though, I think, or if the book is a standalone. That might be something that NetGalley can improve on in the future? Thanks to Netgalley for this e-arc.   
Leave The Night On starts with Wyatt, our lead male character who works in a garage with his brothers. Wyatt is a twin. Jackson is his twin brother, and Ford is his other bro…

Then Came You (Compass Cove #1) by Jeannie Moon Review

Hi ForeverBookers! How are you all doing today?
I've just finished Then Came You by Jeannie Moon, which is a really heartwarming contemporary story. It's told in 3rd person, which I'm not normally a big fan of, but I thought it worked well here. The story was so compelling to read that I didn't really care what perspective it was told in. 
Then Came You will only be in ebook form. It releases on 26th September 2017 though, so you don't have long to wait. I requested it through NetGalley so thank you to them for giving me the chance to read and review it. 
Then Came You does have sex scenes as well as a bullying parental figure so I'd say it was 17/18+ readers. 
5 Stars...

Then Came You tells the story of Mia, a woman in her late 20's who has an unstable life at the beginning of the novel. She's been looking after her nephew, Ben for years after her sister, his mother committed suicide. She doesn't get along with her own mother and she lost her father too…

The Scandal by Fredrik Backman Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I've finished The Scandal and it was good! It took me a while to read because it's over 400 pages and it took a while for me to write this review too.

NetGalley provided me with an e-arc of The Scandal so thanks to them for letting me read it. 
3 Stars!
The Scandal takes place in Beartown, which is in Scandinavia, in this novel. 
"Beartown isn't close to anything". This means that without hockey, the main thing that holds this community together, the people of Beartown wouldn't have anything. It's their life source. 
"Want to bet?" Kevin grins. "100 kronor" Lyt nods. They shake on it"
They use the kronor as their currency. This is how we know the novel takes place in Scandinavia.
It's a very sports dominated book so if that isn't your type of book, maybe don't pick this up. There is emotional stuff as well though, although it's not a romance at all! 
NOTE…

The Futures by Anna Pitoniak Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
Yesterday, I finished a contemporary book called The Futures by Anna Pitoniak and it was great! This would have been what I read for Read A Hyped Book for the booktubathon, as I've heard a few Booktubers hype it up.
It's now available to buy/download too. I read the arc from NetGalley so thanks to them for giving me access.
It's told in duel POV format, where we see how the main events of the book affect both our main characters, Evan and Julia. The perspectives were quite easy to tell apart as each chapter is titled with the name of the character it's coming from. Also it switched every chapter as well as the personalities differing throughout. I normally don't like it when a female author writes a male POV or vice versa because I don't think they know what men feel, just as I don't think men know what women feel. I, however thought that Pitoniak did a good job in this case as the story deals more with emotion than sex, I guess. The Futur…
