Book Review: Remind Me

Today I will be reviewing 'Remind Me' by Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers, copy received from Netgalley via (InterMix) Penguin Group, in exchange for an honest review.

'Remind Me' is a Contemporary Romance novel, it is 273 pages long and it took me about five hours to read. It is available at Amazon (Kindle), for $4.99, and at Barne & Noble (NOOKBook) for $4.99.

About The Book

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Length: 273 Pages

Publisher: InterMix, Penguin Group

Release Date: April 21, 2015

Book Synopsis
As heiress to a media empire Alessandra Sinclair was raised to put family obligations first. But everything changes the night her first love walks back into her life and turns her whole world upside down. Haunted by the memories of a secret romance with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, she can't seem to get Hudson Chase out of her mind. Once again torn between two worlds, Allie must decide how much she's willing to risk to have the love she's always longed for.

Ten years is a long time to wait, but billionaire Hudson Chase didn't become CEO of one of the country's fastest growing company's by giving up on what he wants. Now that he's got Allie in his sights again, he's determined to make her regret breaking his heart. And this time, he's going to make damn sure he's not so easy to forget.

What did I think? 3 Stars

Like: The ending. Cliffhanger!
Dislike: Too much sex, not enough story.

Would I recommend it?
I think this is one of those books where it comes down to what you like and don't like in books. I can't really give a yes or no answer. The best answer I can give is that you should just read a few reviews to see for yourself if you think it's something you would want to read.

I went into this book thinking I was going to love it and that it would immediately get 5 Stars, but after reading the book I can only give it 3 Stars. I thought this was going to be a sweet second chance love story, instead it was filled with random  explicit sex scenes and not much else.

I don't mind sex scenes or cursing, however I do think it was definitely overdone in this book. Nowhere in the description did it indicate that this book would fit into the erotica category.

I think this book is a lot like Fifty Shades of Grey, but definitely better. However, even though there was a lot I didn't like about this book, I do plan on reading the next book in the series because the ending to this book was very promising. Maybe it will change my mind on the first book, who knows.

Thank you Penguin Group via Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review!

REVIEW: SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength

Hello Lovelies!
Today I will be reviewing SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix !
SlimQuick Pure is a weight loss drink mix designed just for women's weight loss. SlimQuick Pure is designed to increase metabolism, reduce your appetite,  boost energy, reduce bloating, support hormones, and reduce stress, which is a big contributing factor to weight gain.

My Thoughts?
When I received this product I didn't know what to expect, but after trying it I really liked it. Plus, before I tried it my mom found the box and tried it while I was at work.

I've really noticed that since I started using this product that my appetite has really diminished, I get full easier and I don't get hungry as often.

I've been using this product for about two weeks now, and since I started using this product I've lost about 4 pounds. On top of the drink mix I've been walking, going to physical therapy, and watching what I eat.

Personally I love the sweet taste and I think it tastes even better when you put it in the freezer and let it get slushy!

Will I repurchase? 
I already have and I'm thinking about trying the gummies too! I got two free gummies in my sample box and I really liked them and I think with my busy schedule it might be easier for me to keep up with the gummies than it is with the drink mix.

What do you think about SlimQUick drink mixes? Will you be trying this product?

Happy Labor Day

Hello Lovelies! Happy Labor Day!
Today, I'm going to be busy planning blog posts and making a schedule, last month I didn't really put much time or work into blogging and I made a lot of excuses for not blogging. 

This month I'm turning things around, I'm done making excuses for not doing what I should do. Yes I work a lot of crazy hours, but I CAN blog and do schoolwork too. I just have to learn how to manage my time and plan things out. S

That's my main goal for this month, I'll be sharing my monthly goals with you tomorrow, so that's all for today, I hope you have a great day!

Meet My New Puppy - Buddy

Hello Lovelies!
Today I would like to introduce you to the newest member of my family, Buddy! He's a  week old Black Lab and I've had him for two weeks now.
So far our time together has been amazing, I've wanted a puppy for so long and he really is too cute! He's a sleepy boy and I love it. He falls asleep in the funniest positions, he loves sleeping on his back and he likes to bury himself in my pillows. 
Yes that's right I let him sleep in my bed, I couldn't help it. I let him sleep in my bed his first night home to make him more comfortable, but  I've started moving him into his own bed at night. I don't want him to get used to sleeping in my bed, because in just a few short months he's going to start getting huge!

Last Saturday he went to the Vet to get his shots and he got a clean bill of health! He goes back in two weeks for another set of shots.
I'm sure I'll be sharing more about him in the future, today I just wanted to show him off because I'm in love!

Lori & Buddy
