REVIEWS: Reality Girl by Jessica Hildreth @HildrethJessica @ScottDHildreth #teamHildreth #99c Kat's Review Melissa's Review #RealityGirl






Recently out of college, broke, jobless, and without a boyfriend, Lou Whitson is recognized by a talent scout at a football game, and then offered the opportunity of a lifetime. 

To be the star of a reality television show. Along with it, $500,000 in prize money. 

There is a catch, but it isn't much. Especially considering her life's lack of love. 

Live with six different men, one a month, for six months. Then, pick one to marry for an additional $500,000. 

A Navy SEAL, a biker, a jock, a surfer, a business man, and a billionaire. Without hesitation, she agrees. 

This is her story. It's smoking hot, sexy, funny, and will take place at the pace of one book a month for six months. Each book has a satisfying ending (never a cliffhanger) that will leave you grinning for more. 



5 STARS

So, I am thinking, "Okay, Another one of those types of mini-series books." I figured I knew what to expect. But, see, I should have known differently, because Scott Hildreth had his hand in this one, helping his wife, and if HE has anything to do with it, he ISN'T going to let it be TYPICAL. And then there is also, Jessica! She is by no means TYPICAL, herself! ;)

So, queue the fun and the different! Reality game show meets "reality." That's what I see...but I am hanging on to see what Jessica has in store for us from month-to-month as each male contestant comes into the house to rock Lou's world. 

For sure, she gave us a little surprise in this one! :) I am sure she will have another in the next one too! :) My mind is already wondering on so many possibilities...and I have a big imagination! ;)


5 STARS

Reality Girl: Episode One by Jessica Hildreth is her debut romance novella. Reality Girl is going to be a six part collection of novellas that will need to be read as the series to understand what is happening. Jessica Hildreth has written a sweet story about how being willing to join the crazy idea of a reality show hopefully can lead to an unexpected love.

Lou Whitson is a girl who needs a break on a lot of levels. She has a strong sense of herself and decides to try the show idea for “Reality Sucks”. The six guys are a Navy SEAL, a biker, a jock, a surfer, a business man, and a billionaire. Fun and, yeah, Lou thinks.

The episodes are not ending with cliffhangers-Episode One ends with the end of Lou’s time with the guy for the first month of shows. I enjoyed Jessica Hildreth’s storytelling. Jessica Hildreth’s secondary characters are fun and need to be paid attention to. If you want hot fun, give this series a try. I know I enjoyed this story very much; can’t wait for Episode Two.


Thanks Jessica Hildreth & Good Writing




Scott and Jessica met long, long ago in a romantic donut shop in Wichita, Kansas. They have been inseparable since that fateful day and are now happily married and reside in Naples, Florida.

They have 6 kids and Scott plans on having one more, although Jessica isn't quite convinced. In their spare time, they enjoy drinking coffee, making ridiculous live feeds and when they can, escaping for a joyride on Scott's motorcycle.

Scott has always been the writer and Jessica has always been the graphic artist, but now they are combining forces and trying their hands at collaborative writing.

From USA Today Bestselling Author, A.M. Hargrove, comes a New Adult, Single Dad, Sexy, Stand Alone Romance.

Single dad, Beckley Bridges, is sexy as hell. No, really, he’s the hottest thing since the sun was created. Honest to God, crack an egg on him and the thing will sizzle. So what’s the problem? He’s also a gigantic jerk. I hate the bastard. I try to avoid him at all costs. But for some reason, everywhere I go he seems to show up. Only the real issue is his daughter, English. She’s an adorable quirky first-grader who’s the sweetest thing since iced tea. And she’s one of my students but also the love of his life. So I have to deal with him on a professional level. It’s not easy. On a scale of easy to hard, dealing with Beckley Bridges is like nails screeching across a blackboard. But when English’s mother tries to gain custody after abandoning her on Beckley’s doorstep as an infant, he’ll do anything possible to keep English under his roof. That’s how he ends up propositioning me. And crazy as it sounds? I find myself considering it. This is a full-length novel that includes mature content not suitable younger readers.

5 Stars

For The Love Of English by A.M. Hargrove is a sweet standalone read in the New Adult Romance area. A. M. Hargrove is a new-to-me storyteller. I was given For the Love of English in order to be introduced to A. M. Hargrove’s wonderful storytelling style.

Beckley Bridges has been a single dad from the age of 19. His daughter, English, was left on his doorstep with a note and the paperwork for him to have sole custody. Not a problem, it was love at first sight and the rest of his focus is "for the love of English."

Sheridan Monroe, a first year teacher, has had a struggle from her teens to get to the career she has known was for her. First graders are a full attention job each and everyday. She knows she should not have a favorite student but English Bridges steals her heart.

A. M. Hargrove takes us on the roller-coaster ride of what two people end up doing for "the love of English."  It is at points, funny, heart breaking, surprising discoveries of what will be done to a keep English a happy child. The secondary characters are an important part of what makes this a wonderful page turner. It is intended for older readers because it has hot events. I am glad I have met A. M. Hargrove. I really enjoyed For The Love Of English, you should check out this story for a great escape read with wonderful characters.

Thanks, A. M. Hargrove, and good writing!

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears the coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.

RHAPSODY-EBOOK (1)

Commander Jack McIntyre has been tasked with saving American democracy, but he has to save his marriage first. He's desperate to regain the passionate connection that he and his wife once shared. And a man on a mission will sacrifice anything to succeed.

In the meantime, the rebellion is in need of a catalyst to spur international action to stop President Santos’ increasingly unstable behavior.

*****5 AMAZING STARS

Cecilia London drew me in quickly to the first four books of this beautiful, yet, heart wrenching saga and now to finally have gotten my hands on this fifth installment, I had to stop what I was reading to continue my obsession into this world to finally see where Cecilia, Jack and Caroline would take me. 

FINALLY, my heart has some relief as Caroline has emotionally found her way back to Jack, even though Caroline has a long way to go to still be emotionally healed from all that the Fed put her through. But, it is a huge start. 

Jack, in despair, almost gave up, thinking he could never get his one true love back, but with support from the only doctor/therapist on base, he made it through the storm and helped Caroline break down her walls. 

Now the rebellion needs to do what it can to get their government back from a megalomaniac who has taken over the United States, lied to it's people, and done unspeakable things to so many and broken so many laws along the way. It's now up to Caroline to strengthen herself to be able to do what needs to be done to help in that cause with Jack by her side leading the rebellion. 

Not only is this a heartbreaking, yet beautiful love story, it digs deep into friends and family bonds, the love of country, what is right and wrong, knowing when you have to sacrifice for the good of all, and when that sacrifice is paid...can you handle it? 

With the state that our country is in, this is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED read. It makes you REALLY think, "This could REALLY HAPPEN!"

Bravo, Cecilia! Bravo! I am on pins and needles awaiting the final installment coming in 2017, Triump. The title says it all!
