ARC REVIEW: Black Hat Hacker by Soraya Noami

I have the most lucrative job in the country as a hacker in the notorious underworld. I’ve built entire systems and destroyed evidence for career advancement while stealing and exploiting data for personal gain. 
I’m the black hat hacker for the Chicago Syndicate and hold all the dirty secrets of the most powerful men in the U.S. in the palm of my hands, just a keystroke away from mass ruination.

However, no one knows my dirty secret, a decision from my past that’s just aching to blow up in my face and shatter my future. Especially when a certain wavy haired brunette begins to demand my attention with her odd ways and her carefree attitude.

She’s a woman who makes me go against everything I’ve ever believed.
A woman whom I’m forbidden from having my usual one-night stand with, even if she was available.
A woman whom I have to keep from getting herself killed, whether she likes it or not.

You don’t know me, but neither does she…yet.




Black hat hacker has hacked my heart. This book was simply stunning. I love mafia romances and this was one of them. It wasn't too dark but still it had some dark moments. I was unable to put this book down, it was really intriguing and full of humour and action. I read it in one sitting and I loved loved loved it!
Black hat hacker had best friends to lovers vibe and this concept was depicted in a very nice way. Their relationship wasn't irritating, and this is the first friends to lovers book in which the character's continuous denial didn't get on my nerves. It was such an enjoyable read.

The book revolves around Henry, a black hat alpha hacker , he is so hot and oh so sinfully sexy and smart, oh forget that lets just get to the point so I was saying that Henry is a hacker who has made his way from bottom to top and has secured a reputable position in Chicago syndicate. He had an awful past and had made some seriously ridiculous  mistakes so he just sticks to one night stands. But the problem is that he is insanely attracted to his boss's sister who totally reciprocates his feelings but she is also kind of committed to a douchebag so he just holds back but he is so damn jealous and I love jealous heroes. Mary on the other hand thinks that she is not able to hold Henry's attention so because of this reason she friendzones him. All in all they both just misinterpret  each other's feelings.

As the story proceeds their relationship blooms. Their relationship had so many bumps but they just got through it.  And oh boy!! The chemistry was just great. The sexual tension could be literally cut with a knife, it was certainly​ off the charts. This book had a bunch of twists and turns which were quite shocking and I really didn't see them coming. The story was so intense at certain places and so funny at the other. This book did have 2 heart-wrenching scenes and they were so well written, one of them even brought tears to my eyes. And I loved that scene.

The author did a great job with this one. She has a way of writing that consumes the readers completely. I highly recommend this book. Guys!! Believe me you really don't want to miss this one!! So go ahead and get hacked!!

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E

REVIEW | BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families.  Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca.  Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power ,  but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile. In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster withi

REVIEW | PRICE OF A KISS (Forbidden Men #1) BY LINDA KAGE

I don’t care what my cousin says;  I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean— Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate...except for one teeny tiny glitch. He's a gigolo. Boy, do I know how to pick them. 5 "I Love You, Mason" Reding Owls I loved, loved, loved this book . This one is definitely worth reading. It's so different th
