My Review:

Here’s another fun vella story. This one kept my attention and I look forward to seeing where it goes next. They are about to enter the maze.

Review: Break Every Chain

Synopsis:

High school senior Maverick Mason has what every guy his age wants: the girl, the grades, the god-like status. Amira Abbasi is the same age and lives in the same town, but her reality couldn’t be more different. In fact, no one outside her household knows she exists. A chance encounter may change that, but will it make a difference if her fate has already been sealed?


My Review:

This review is a little different, because I haven’t finished the book. For one thing, it isn’t finished. It’s serialized fiction available on Vella.

I was drawn in right away with the action in the first chapter. Maverick is a high school football star. We meet in the exciting opening. I liked Maverick and Amira’s first meeting, and I’m wondering what is going to happen next. (Because Amira is a servant to Lacey, Maverick’s date for the night.)

The first three episodes are free, and if you are like me, you’ll be spending your tokens on this. I look forward to seeing what author Aella Black as in store.

Debut Author: Flower Boy Tour Guide by Shannon Kent

 

Flower Boy: noun 1. slang for a really hot guy

Hannah Reynolds travels to Korea in search of her own drama hero come to life. What she gets instead is gorgeous, but surly tour guide, Jae Lee. He seems determined to ruin every romantic location they visit with his snarky comments, but Hannah can’t deny the crackling tension between them.

As they travel around the country with a busload of wacky K-drama and K-pop fans, their chemistry keeps drawing the two together. Hannah sees the mountain of problems standing between her and a relationship with Jae. They live in different countries. She’s flying home in five days. And he always takes an emotional step back whenever they get closer. But her heart doesn’t want to listen to reason. All it can see is the flower boy tour guide.


 

My Review:

Flower Boy Tour Guide is the first in the multi-author series, My Korean Crush. These authors love learning about Korea because of what we’ve been lucky enough to see of their dramas and  Kpop music.

I was lucky enough to read this prior to release, and I’ve already purchased my ebook. (It’s only 99 cents of you act fast!)

The story sets  out with a young American  arriving in Seoul.  She feels like she’s come home, and is excited to be there.  When she meets her roommate for the tour, it’s instant  best friends. And then there is Jae.  He may look like a flower boy, but he has thorns. Romantic comedy ensues in this delightful debut  by Shannon Kent.
