About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

Please note that I am the ONLY reviewer on the blog beyond a few guest reviews. It has been brought to my attention that people not associated with my blog have been requesting ARCs please if you ever question a request please email me at the blog's email.

ARC Review! This Is Our Song by Samantha Chase

She knows him by reputation
Riley Shaughnessy knew that to stand out in his large family, he'd have to go big. Making a name for himself as a musician wasn't easy, but he followed his dreams to rock-star success. But the relentless expectations of fans is not helping the slump he's in now. So of course the person who attracts him is the woman who is not impressed by fame.

Which gives Riley Shaughnessy a lot to prove
Entertainment reporter Savannah Daly is completely unfazed by pretty-boy rock stars. She's just here to get her interview and write her story. But spending an entire month with the Shaughnessys is going to show Savannah a side of Riley she never could have guessed.

I liked this one, but I didn't love it.  And, at first I wasn't sure why.  But after thinking about it, there were parts of the story where I didn't totally believe the characters.  Not badly enough to stop reading, not badly enough to give the book a bad rating...but just enough that it kept me from loving the story as much as I thought I was going to.

I liked Riley and Savannah, although I am not sure I believed them completely.  He seemed a little unsure of himself for being a rockstar, which I get was the point.  And, I thought the idea that Savannah was a major enough writer at her magazine to get this story...but in danger of being fired if she didn't write the story...well, it didn't follow for me.

Other than this, I enjoyed the writing, the characters and the storyline.  I think I was just a little pulled out of the story by those small issues and it stayed with me for the story.

I do recommend this book, it is well worth the time to read it.
