Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Down by Contact by Santino Hassell is out on the 16th. If you’ve read my 2017 favourite reads, you’ll know how much I loved the first book in this series, Illegal Contact. So, so good!

This new one is an enemies to lovers story and I just adored Simeon and Adrián. Right from the get go you can see there is a lot of unresolved feelings on Adrián’s side, which means he acts like a bit of a tool. Simeon cannot help but bite back and there’s loads of beautifully written conflict.

I think this is what I love about this authors work so much, it’s the build up and tension, which always seems just right and realistic. Simeon and Adrián are just such a good fit and their chemistry is super hot. Loved this book loads and hot damn, I am so anxious for the next one, I have some thoughts on who’s book it might be for and I bet it will be awesome sauce!

If you’re a fan of contemporary sports romance with sexy tension and football players, this one is a must buy. All the stars and feels.




Bookish Candle Review.

Flick the Wick are the 4th lot of bookish candles I’ve ordered and they are by far my favourite.

As a company they were excellent to deal with. My candles were sent promptly and arrived in a relatively short period of time considering they were going from the USA to New Zealand. It was easy to pay, contact them and discuss anything too, which is not always the case as I have discovered with other sellers I have ordered from.
They all arrived beautifully packaged. All were in individual boxes and wrapped, which again is important if you’re shipping something halfway round the globe. All the candles were in perfect condition and exactly like what was represented on their site. The labels are really clear and are easy to read with great graphics.

The scents are beautiful. This was probably the most important aspect. Out of the set, my favourites are the Aelin candle which is the orange one pictured and the second is the Bibliophile candle. The rest are really good too, but these are heavenly. I highly recommend them! Do you have a favorite bookish candle seller?
