Claire Contreras latest book ‘Half Truths’ takes you on a suspenseful ride, with an ending that leaves you at the edge of your seat

Blurb

You’ve heard of these groups – the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries – I’m the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I’m fresh meat. New blood. New money, too.
They think they’ll elbow past me, that I’m here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they’ll find out soon enough that I’m not. 

I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I’m not. I’m here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs. 
I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn’t here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn’t here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He’s saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead. 
It’s a game I’m willing to play. 

I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I’ll be the first to make it out intact.

*This is a complete standalone novel*


Review

The story follows Mae as she transfers to the school her brother was at when something mysterious happens that caused him to leave. When she gets there she finds she may have bitten off more then she could chew.

There were some things that I was not a fan of with Mae and Logan’s relationship. I didn’t start really liking his character until the final few chapters of the book. He would say or do things that made me wonder why Mae even liked him in the first place. Yeah I know we all love the bad boy thing but Logan just wasn’t tickling my fancy.

The flow is my biggest negative for the book. There were gaps in time (which is fine to have in a book) but there weren’t any clear explanation of time passing. Also there were things that just happened that came out of nowhere and i was confused how we got there.

The ending was able to save this book from being rated 3 stars for me. It twisted and turned and changed everything that you thought you knew. Some of the things I had figured out but there were still things that will blow your mind.

This book wasn’t one of my favorite from Contreras but it was a decent enough book. I had hoped for more and the flow was all over the place. I think there was a goal that she had in mind that sometimes she didn’t take the time to develop it. There were quite a few surprises that kept me intrigued but I had hoped for more in the end.

Claire Contreras latest book ‘Half Truths’ has a very ominous feeling

Claire Contreras latest book ‘The Trouble With Love’ is now available

TTWL - RB banner.jpg

The Trouble With Love, an all new, contemporary romance by New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras, is now live!

TTWL AMAZON

Things on my wishlist:
1. Start a new, awesome job
2. Create the perfect dating app
3. Stop dating douchebags

Things that actually happen:
1. Got a job in my dream tech company
2. Created a workplace dating app for said company
3. Was matched Bennett, who happens to own the company and is also my brother’s best friend

They say when it rains, it pours, but this is some serious BS. It doesn’t help that Bennett was the man I had my one last night stand with. It definitely doesn’t help that he seems to want me just as much as I want him. The issue is, he won’t do anything about it, but then we’re forced to attend a tech conference in Vegas and I think it may just be what I need to turn this thing around.

New goal: get my brother’s best friend out of my system by all means necessary.

The Trouble With Love is a standalone contemporary romance.

‘The Consequence of Falling’ by Claire Contreras is now available

TCoF - RB Banner.jpg

“Claire Contreras delivers ALL the feels in this charming, witty and sexy enemies-to-lovers romance, and it will own your heart from cover to cover.” – Mary, Frolic Media

The Consequence of Falling, a contemporary romance by New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras is Live!

TCOF AMAZON.jpg

The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .

1. Black coffee

2. Rude people

3. Nathaniel Bradley

Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out.

1. He’s an annoying know-it-all.

2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets.

3. He disapproves of everything I do.

I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin.

I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.

I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it.

Review: ‘Then There was You’ by Claire Contreras – a story about how second chances do not always end in HEA

Format: e-book, paperback, audible
Format read: e-book arc
Series: book 1 of Second Chances Duet
Rating: 18+ sexual content, language
Genre: Contempory Romance
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36488625-then-there-was-you?ac=1&from_search=true

This is one of the most frustrated books that I have read in a long time. Rowan is one of the most frustrating characters that I have read in a long time.

And I loved every single second of it.

Rowan doesn’t believe in love and marriage (and considering his reasons, I can’t really blame him). But with Tessa, things are different. He is different. And here is where the frustrations stem from. It is obvious that he loves her but he’s just too stubborn to admit that he loves her. Because “he doesn’t bleed” and we all know that love makes us bleed.

Tessa has the world at her feet. But there is something that’s been missing from her life. And that something is Rowan. She’s been in love with him since she was a teenager but she was not willing to give up her dreams for it. I love that she is like that because so many times in love stories, the woman gives up her dreams to be with the guy. I liked that she is willing to fight for her dreams and not let Rowan have her give them up.

There is a cliffhanger with this one (but to be honest it’s not something that you won’t probably be able to predict). Does that take away from the story? Heck no. While I knew what was going to happen at the end, it only made me want more. I want to know what’s going to happen next because you know it’s gonna be CRAZY!
