Happily Ever After... | The Trade by Ashlyn Hope


Title: The Trade
By: Ashlyn Hope
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Pages: 234
Release Date: March 5th, 2018
Publisher: Pizzicato Publishing

Summary from Goodreads: Her name is Tyra, and she’s a footballsexual. 

The muscles, the chiseled faces, the masculine posturing, and the tight pants all make her heart pound, and since her high school days stealing kisses from the varsity running back, she’s been hooked on the guys of the gridiron. She’s addicted to these dudes, and she’s not the only one. She’s one of a group of local girls who go out together and try to score with these guys every chance they get. 

So, yes, Tyra’s a jersey chaser. But when she meets the hunky big name quarterback who was traded to the team, she’s met her match. He’s handsome, smart, and sweet, and he and Tyra have a lot in common – including a growing desire to settle down. 

As their relationship heats up, Tyra will consider swapping out her football groupie ways for a real relationship. But that’s not going to happen if her past doesn’t block her happily ever after from happening.

Review: Girls just want to have fun... or a relationship... This was a fun read, that kept me entertained throughout the story. We follow Tyra as she turns from jersey chaser to girlfriend. The writing was good and the story was easy to follow.

There were a few things that made my rating lower. The fact that the main character was unrelatable  and totally full of herself made me not like her much. She gave off the vibe of a support character than a main heartthrob, but toward the end of the book, it cleaned up a bit. Also, the steamy scenes came on quickly and ended quickly. A little more build up and sustainability would have been more interesting to me.

All in all, it was entertaining and I'm glad I read it.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
