The Bad-Girl and the Boy-Next-Door
After getting completely wasted at a wedding reception, bridesmaid Anna Hart wakes up in a strange bed and can’t remember what she did or who she did it with.
The stranger in bed with Anna is Brett Conner, a nerdy guy who she vaguely remembers from college, but only because everyone called him Clown Hair. Only Brett isn’t quite as nerdy as Anna remembers. His clown hair is long gone and Brett is almost cute—and kind of sexy.
Over the course of four weddings, in four cities, in one crazy summer, Brett and Anna start a mismatched relationship. But is there a future for the bad-girl and the boy-next-door?

Review: For Gods and For Men (Lifeblood Saga, #1) by James R. Johnson

For Gods and For Men (Lifeblood Saga, #1)For Gods and For Men by James R. Johnson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What are some of the book's themes? Lies, humanity, sex, politics and love. I felt the execution of these themes were average and it could have been better. The author doesn't indicate if this book is part of a series, I am hoping it does because there were still many unanswered questions.

Did the book end the way you expected? It wasn't entirely a surprise. The plot was rather well-written but was mostly predictable and I would have liked some element of surprise where Castimus was concerned.

What I liked about the whole book – I liked the pacing and the way the secondary characters came into the novel was excellent. The setting was expressive and directly connected with how each scene played out.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
