Alphas Like Us By Krista and Becca Ritchie

Maverick, know-it-all bodyguard Farrow Keene knows publicly dating American royalty comes with a great cost. Everyone wants a piece of their relationship. And as a protective boyfriend, he’s not here for the malicious hands that grab at their love life and seek to rip them apart. 

But Farrow is confident — he’s confident that he could’ve never prepared for the storm to come.

Keep him safe.

Maximoff Hale isn’t a big fan of change. And to regain the charity CEO position he lost, he agrees to a task that he’s always rejected. One that could uproot his unconventional world. 

But Maximoff is afraid — he’s afraid of the consequences that could destroy his boyfriend and his family. 

Keep him safe.

Changes are on the horizon. 

Maximoff & Farrow will fight for their forever. And with every breath, they promise that their love story won’t end here. 

​​The Like Us series is a true series, one continuous timeline, that follows a family of wealthy celebrities and the people that protect them. You must read Books 1 and 2 before reading Alphas Like Us. 


I am a super fan of Krista an Becca, not only because they write one of my favorite series, but also because they are super humble, and take a little of their time to interact with their fans. As a voracious reader, I must say, not all authors do this.

In ALU, we can see how Moffy and Farrow has grown. They learnt a lot together, about themselves and about each other.

They have gone through pain, happiness, sickness... and they made to the other side as better persons.

Their path was full of obstacles, but they dodged or handled them as a unity. 

It was beautiful to see, Farrow learning how to deal with Moffy´s family, after all. 

And Farrow´s letter made me cry my eyes out.


Some parts made me really mad, like this one:

"She plays favorite with her four daughters. And that hierarchy affects me and my sibllings and my cousins."

Thats Moffys thinking about his grandmother when she´s approaching him, to wish him a happy birthday, and what she says to him it was outrageous. And made me cry like a baby, again.

I hate parents who plays favorite, and as a grandchild I know exactly whats he goes through.


Lo made me cry as well, obviously he didn´t made me angry. How could he? He couldn´t.

Loren calls Farrow for a walk, and while they walk and talk, Lo says to him:

"Take care of my son" 

"My son will take care of you"

I´m crying just writing about it. 

Lo, I love you.#LiLoForever #HaleForever


Just thinking about how long I have to wait for Jane´s story makes me itchy.

Whatelse can I say, besides: "When can I get more?"

The British Knight by Louise Bay

When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met.

As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.


As a fan of Louise´s books I must say this one didn´t let me down.

It was as good as her previous books.

Though, I must say I couldn´t relate to Violet, because, I can´t imagine living a life where I don´t plan, or prepare myself financially to a problem in my future.

It makes me itch just thinking about it.

But, I loved her and Alex, their banter and chemistry, everything about them.


Como uma fã dos livros da Louise Bay, devo dizer que esse não me decepcionou.

Foi tão bom, quanto os livros anteriores dela.

Porém, devo dizer que não conseguir me identificar com a Violet. Não consigo imaginar uma vida em que eu não planeje ou me prepare financeiramente para um problema no futuro.

Me coço toda só de pensar.

Mas, amei-a de qualquer maneira, ela e o Alex. As conversas deles, a química, tudo sobre eles. Foi perfeito.

Ignite The Stars by Maura Milan

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.


Everyone in the universe knows his name. Everyone in the universe fears him. But no one realizes that notorious outlaw Ia Cocha is a seventeen-year-old girl.

A criminal mastermind and unrivaled pilot, Ia has spent her life terrorizing the Olympus Commonwealth, the imperialist nation that destroyed her home. When the Commonwealth captures her and her true identity is exposed, they see Ia’s age and talent as an opportunity: by forcing her to serve them, they will prove that no one is beyond their control.

Soon, Ia is trapped at the Commonwealth’s military academy, desperately plotting her escape. But new acquaintances—including Brinn, a seemingly average student with a closely-held secret, and their charming Flight Master, Knives—cause Ia to question her own alliances. Can she find a way to escape the Commonwealth’s clutches before these bonds deepen?


Sci fi books its always a surprise for me, I never know what kind of book I´ll read when I start a sci fi one.

I love the genre, but not everyone knows how to write a sci fi story. Its a chalenge in itself.

But Maura was up to the chalenge and this one was a good book.

I think the beginning was a little slow, but it gets better, and its really fast paced.


Livros de sci fi pra mim, são sempre uma surpresa. Eu nunca sei que tipo de livro vou ler quando começo um livro de ficção científica.

Eu amo o gênero, mas nem todos sabem como escrever uma boa história de ficção científica. O desafio já começa daí.

Mas, a autora estava à altura do desafio e este foi um bom livro.

Um pouco lento no começo, mas fica melhor e a história fica mais rápida.

The Choice By Jake Cross

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.


‘You’ve got to help me,’ she pleads. 
On a wet road in the black of night, Karl Seabury is driving home to his pregnant wife. Suddenly, caught in his headlights in the middle of the road is a woman shaking with fright. 

The woman says her name is Liz Smith, that her home was attacked, and that she was the only one to escape. 

In a split-second decision, Karl decides to help her to safety. But Liz is hiding a dark secret and now his good deed has put his family in terrible danger... 


I decided to read this book because its blurb caught my attention.

It was a good book, in a general sense, but it lacks common sense to the characters. 

They made the kind of mistake that makes you scream in your head "Noooooo".

Like when horror movies characters that are running away from the bad guy always run up the stairs, 
instead of running them down. 


Eu decidi ler esse livro, porque eu gostei da sinopse.

E, de um modo geral, foi um bom livro, mas falta senso comum aos personagens.

Eles cometiam os tipos de erro que me faziam gritar em minha mente " Nãooooo".

Como nos filmes de terror, onde os personagens fugindo do vilão sempre sobem as escadas, ao invés de descê-las.

The Raging Ones

#TheRagingOnes #NetGalley 

I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

​In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds.

Franny Bluecastle, a tough city teen, dreams of dying in opulence, to see wealth she’s never known. Like the entire world, she believes it’s impossible to dodge a deathday.

Until the day she does.

Court Icecastle knows wealth. He also knows pain. Spending five years in Vorkter Prison, a fortress of ice and suffering, he dreams of life beyond the people that haunt him and the world that imprisoned him.

Mykal Kickfall fights for those he loves. The rugged Hinterlander shares a frustrating yet unbreakable connection with Court—which only grows more lawless and chaotic as their senses and emotions connect with Franny.

With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space. Against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way that they do.


Well, first of all, I must say, I´m a great fan of KB books and I was ecstatic when I learnt I received an ARC to read and review this book. Can you believe my luck? Yeah, me neither.

So... The Raging Ones was a surprise, as a fan of KB work, read TRO was a suprise every step of the way.

About the storyline:

I knew it was a sci-fi book, but I didn´t expect the level of commitment they put through it. They create a whole new world, literally. With intricacies that left you think WTH just happenned? But, at the same time it was like our old little world.

I mean... the world they live in is full of prejudice toward babes and fast trackers and prejudice its something we all know very well, we see all around us, every day.

The way KB developed the plot, and started to unravel the story to us its really great, I didn´t felt like I couldn´t understand whats was happening. Sometimes, I felt like it was bit slow paced, and it could go faster without lose content or meaning. But it wasn´t enough to make me put the book down.

But, what really was a catch for me was their relationship. I expected more. I really wanted them to be a triad, and I felt sorry for Franny, whan I saw Court and Mykal as a couple, and she was left out. I hope all three of them become sometging more at the next book.

About the characters:

I loved Mykal, and I think he´s the glue to their relationship. He is the one who cares the most about Franny and Court. And they both let it go of their stupidity because of him.

Even though Court its the more intelligent one, Franny its the smartest one. She learnt fast even if she didnt had his academic background, and that says a lot, since he was a Wonder ( a super smart, gifted person)

Court, needs a review just for himself. He´s Intelligent, cunning, an Alpha in every way and he has great trust issues. I didn´t liked him as I liked Mykal and Franny, I thought he was cold toward both of them, but specially toward Franny.

About the end:

WTF!!!! I need the next one ASAP.


Bem, antes de tudo, devo dizer que sou uma grande fã dos livros da KB e fiquei em êxtase quando soube que receberia um ARC para ler e revisar este livro. Você pode acreditar na minha sorte? É, eu também não.

Então ... "The Raging Ones" foi uma surpresa. Como um fã do trabalho da KB, posso afirmar que TRO foi uma surpresa a cada passo.

Sobre o enredo:

Eu sabia que era um livro de ficção científica, mas eu não esperava o nível de compromisso que elas colocaram nessa história. Elas criaram um novo mundo, literalmente. Com complexidades que me deixaram pensando: "Que WTF acabou de acontecer?" Mas, ao mesmo tempo, era como nosso velho mundinho.

Quero dizer ... o mundo em que eles vivem está cheio de preconceito contra os Babes e os Fast Trackers e preconceito é algo que todos nós conhecemos muito bem, vemos ao nosso redor todos os dias.

A maneira como a KB desenvolveu o enredo e começou a desvendar a história para nós é realmente excelente, eu não senti como se eu não entendesse o que estava acontecendo.

Às vezes, eu achava que estava um pouco lento, e que poderia ir mais rápido sem perder conteúdo ou significado, mas não me fez desistir de ler o livro.

O que poderia ter sido melhor, na minha opinião, foi o relacionamento deles. Eu esperava mais. Eu realmente queria que eles fossem um trisal, e eu senti pena de Franny, quando eu vi Court e Mykal como um casal, e ela foi deixada de fora. Espero que os três sejam um trisal no próximo livro.

Sobre os personagens:

Adorei Mykal, e acho que ele é a cola do relacionamento. Ele é quem mais se importa com Franny e Court. E ambos deixaram sua estupidez de lado por causa do Mykal.

Mesmo que Court seja o mais inteligente, Franny é a mais esperta. Ela aprendeu rápido, mesmo que ela não tivesse os antecedentes acadêmicos de Court.

Court, precisa de uma resenha só para ele. Ele é Inteligente, astuto, um Alfa em todos os sentidos e ele tem grandes problemas de confiança. Eu não gostei de como ele tratou Mykal e Franny, muitas vezes. Achei que ele foi muito frio com os dois, principalmente com a Franny.

Sobre o fim:

WTF !!!! Preciso do próximo, o mais rápido possível.

The ones who got away by Roni Loren

Liv's words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she'd known. The bulky football muscles had streamlined into a harder, leaner package and the look in his deep green eyes held no trace of boyish innocence.

It's been twelve years since tragedy struck the senior class of Long Acre High School. Only a few students survived that fateful night—a group the media dubbed The Ones Who Got Away.

Liv Arias thought she'd never return to Long Acre—until a documentary brings her and the other survivors back home. Suddenly her old flame, Finn Dorsey, is closer than ever, and their attraction is still white-hot. When a searing kiss reignites their passion, Liv realizes this rough-around-the-edges cop might be exactly what she needs...


I decided to read this book because it was recommended by Colleen Hoover, and she´s my ultimate favorite author alongside with Nora Roberts.

And I must say I wasn´t surprise that this book was one of the best books I read, since it was recommended by her.

Liv Arias was one of the survivors of a school shooting, and they was labeled as the ones who got away.

When she goes back to her hometown because of a documentary being filmed about the shooting, she is forced to deal with all the feelings and pain she left behind all those years ago.

Slowly she learns that she´s not the only one who has trouble dealing with it.

I loved how Liv and her friends learnt how to support each other, even through their different perceptions of how life should be. And how Liv´s friendship with Rebecca never turned into a catfight.

Liv and Finn´s romance was always meant to be, and their chemistry its off the charts.

Roni Loren´s books it´s now in my to read list. I hope they´re all as good as this one, so she can turn into a favorite author as well.


Eu decidi ler este livro porque foi recomendado por Colleen Hoover, e ela é minha melhor autora favorita bem ao lado de Nora Roberts.

E devo dizer que não me surpreendeu que este livro fosse um dos melhores livros que li, já que foi recomendado por ela.

Liv Arias é uma das sobreviventes de um tiroteio na escola em que estudava, os sobreviventes foram rotulados como aqueles que sobreviveram.

Quando Liv volta para sua cidade natal por causa de um documentário que está sendo filmado sobre o tiroteio, ela é forçada a lidar com todos os sentimentos e dor que ela havia deixado para trás por todos esses anos.

Lentamente, ela descobre que ela não é a única que tem problemas para lidar com isso.

Adorei como Liv e suas amigas aprenderam a se apoiar mutuamente, mesmo através de suas diferentes percepções de como a vida deveria ser. E como a amizade de Liv com Rebecca nunca se transformou em uma briguinha boba pelo amor do Finn.

O romance de Liv e Finn é um desses destinados a acontecer, e a química entre eles é de molhar a calcinha.

Os livros de Roni Loren estão agora na minha lista de leitura. Espero que eles sejam tão bons quanto este, para que ela possa se tornar uma autora favorita.

If There's No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications, and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.

Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.

For what she let happen.

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when she and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?


Armentrout it´s another one of my favorite authors, ever since the Lux series (waiting for Luc´s story here) and even though I did not like all of her books, and this one plot its not a new one, reading about drunk driving  and its aftermath it is always necessary. Specially if you think how many people die every  year because of someoneelse´s stupidity. Think about it, when you drink and drive, you ar not only putting your life at risk, but the life of every single person who will cross your way towards home.

And survivor´s guilt its a strong feeling that most people can´t deal with it.

Now you take this problem to teenagers, whom wasn´t even supposed to be drinking at all, let alone drinking and driving. DUI its a plague that assoles all USA territory, and teenage drinking its such a common ocurrence that its a joke  how easy it is to get a fake id and buy alcohol.

Its the high worth all the pain?

This book wasn´t my favorite one but it certainly was a good read, and I strongly recommend you to buy this book to all teenagers in your life.


Armentrout é outra de minhas autoras favoritas, desde a série Lux (esperando a história de Luc) e, embora eu não tenha gostado de todos os livros dela, e este assunto não seja uma novidade, ler sobre a dirigir embriagado e suas conseqüências, é sempre necessário. 

Especialmente quando você vê quantas pessoas morrem todos os anos por causa da estupidez de alguém que faz isso. Pense nisso, quando você bebe e dirige, você não está apenas colocando sua vida em risco, mas a vida de cada pessoa que irá atravessar seu caminho para casa.

E a culpa do sobrevivente é um forte sentimento com o qual a maioria das pessoas não consegue lidar.

Então, você pega esse problema e leva para o conetxto dos adolescentes, que nem sequer deveriam estar bebendo, muito menos dirigindo e bebendo. DUI é uma praga que assola todo o território dos EUA, e a bebida entre os adolescentes é uma ocorrência tão comum que se tornou uma piada, a facilidadde com que é possível se obter uma identificação falsa e comprar álcool.

O seu barato vale toda a dor?

Este livro não foi o meu favorito, mas certamente foi uma boa leitura, e eu recomendo que você compre esse livro para todos os adolescentes da sua vida.
