Playing House review.

Ok how to start my review. I'm actually struggling because I loved it almost as much as it frustrated me.
Initially I loved both leading characters. Hannah was real and strong, an average everyday kinda girl. She had a passion for cooking and was loyal to her friends, and loved deeply. I admired her courage too.
Caleb was again realistic and strong. A wealthy man from a very wealthy family and what every book boyfriend should be, good looks, passionate, caring, and would do anything for Hannah. I loved how both of their worlds collide in the most simplest of places, a local cafe where Hannah works and the contrast of their upbringing and worlds in general. I enjoyed how their relationship blossomed steadily at first, but then BOTH characters did the most craziest things and made decisions that had me shaking my kindle and asking 'wtf are you both playing at?'
This review is going to be vague as I don't want to give anything away of the book, but damn, it frustrated me.
When both Hannah and Caleb are together, the electricity flies, but I personally would have maybe walked from the situation. I wouldn't have been as strong as Hannah was. She has to deal with some crazy stuff in this book. There are some heavy twists and turns that almost gave me whiplash! And the ending!! Is there another book to follow?? God I hope so as I feel there are ends that need tying up!! See, frustrating!!
Anyway, this book had me laughing, sighing, blushing, angry, and pulling my freaking hair out because arrrgh!!! That ending. There has to be more. I need a little closure for sure.
So as far as debuts go, this was a good book and had me having intense feels, and not just the mushy kind. A decent 4 stars from me.
Please tell me there's going to be more......
I was given an ARC in return for my honest review.

Never heard or read this author before. But i love it when that happens and the book just grabs a hold of you, as this book certainly did for me. I loved the premise that someone with a well planned out life hits a major bump in the road and we get to see how they deal with it. I love reading about how people deal with these sorts of situations, and in the case of this story it was very intriguing and certainly kept me hooked to the very last page. I will not give away too much about what happens but there are plenty of surprise revelations and i love the simmering romance as it builds between Hannah and Caleb and the two opposite worlds they inhabit at times then the cafe where they connect together. Very enjoyable book

HASH(0x8a5d5f78) out of 5 stars Awesome Debut 2 Sept. 2015
By Eli Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Playing House is Mira Day's debut novel. She definitely is not playing at writing. This book grabbed me from the very beginning. The characters reached out from the pages and grabbed my attention...especially Hannah.

Hannah is an everyday woman. She is trying to work through life....so she can live life. A life she wants to live as a chef. It seems easy right? Hannah does not have it easy. She has always had to work hard for everything. Her best friends Lizzy and Mason are the only people she has to rely on. Then she meets Caleb. Woman meets man.....romance.....the end?...not for Hannah. After meeting Caleb, her life actually starts to take a winding unexpected journey.

Caleb is a wealthy lawyer. Handsome and charming as he pushes his way into Hannah's life. He wants her...can he have her? Will their current lives allow room for each other? Will they play house or live life together? You have to read to find out.

Thank you, Mira Day. This is an awesome read. I loved this story. I also love the cover. I can't wait for more from Mira.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

HASH(0x89d18084) out of 5 stars Great book 1 Sept. 2015
By Melissa Mendoza with Alpha Book Club - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review

“‘The whisk is for the first dinner you made for me. It showed me your passion. And the bike was the best thing I could find to represent the American Pickers marathon we watched the first night I kissed you. Your love for history showed me your intelligence. I want you to always remember how strong, passionate, and smart you are. My opinion doesn’t really matter, but I want you to know this is how people see you.’”

4 stars. This book was a fun read, it was emotional at times as well. I liked the characters and the storyline as well!

Hannah Bishop thinks her life is going along as planned….until she discovers that her boyfriend, Connor, is cheating on her.

She has no idea that breaking up with him will lead her to the happiness she deserves—even when Caleb Matthews, the city’s most eligible bachelor and a regular at the café where Hannah works, steps up to help her.

Hannah uncovers secrets about the man she’s running from and the man who has become
her hero, realizing that not everything in life is black and white.

Combining love and action, Playing House explores the secrets people keep and the personal choices everyone must make to achieve happiness.

**Note: This story contains strong character appropriate language, violence and sexual situations.**

Hannah is barely making ends meet working at a cafe during the day and bartending at night. She has a boyfriend that she thinks is the one, but that all changes one drunken night when she calls him and finds out he’s cheating on her. Caleb is the city’s most eligible bachelor and he’s a regular at the cafe where Hannah works. He’s instantly smitten with her and he’s there to pick her up when her relationship takes a dramatic turn. But is Caleb who is says he is?? What happens when her ex shows back up in her life?? This book was so good and I really liked it!!

This was such a cute story! There were sweet moments that made you just want to go "aww!". And then there were moments where you will say " I did not see that coming!" I really hope there is a sequel to this book!

HASH(0x899eae94) out of 5 stars FOUR STARS! 9 Jan. 2016
By Chloe Jelane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Playing House is a fast-paced, contemporary romance with several hot and heavy scenes and a couple of twists.

Hannah is a waitress/bartender with aspirations of being a chef. Caleb is a successful lawyer and regular customer where Hannah works. Sparks fly between them despite the fact that Hannah is in a long-term relationship. By the end of chapter three, I thought I knew what to expect from the rest of the story . . . Likeable young woman in a relationship with douchebaggy guy meets the man of her dreams. Woman doesn’t realize just how douchebaggy the guy is so she wavers between the two men. Eventually, douchebaggy guy shows his true colors, making woman’s decision to end the relationship a no-brainer. She lives happily ever after with the man of her dreams. Was I right? Sort of, but mostly no. There’s a lot more to this story.

Early on, I thought I understood what the title meant. It was simple, straightforward. But then a twist was revealed, and the title meant a bit more. Then after reading a little further, another possible inspiration for the title occurred to me. So one thing I really like about this book is the clever title. I also like the ending, but there are definitely some unanswered questions!

If you like contemporary romance with just a bit of spice and a new adult feel, you might enjoy Playing House.

HASH(0x8a37c168) out of 5 stars Playing House by Mira Day 1 Sept. 2015
By MissKiki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
An amazing tale full of twists and turns, romance and suspense.

Hannah Bishop‘s life changes when she meets lawyer Caleb Matthews at the diner she works at. He is everything any woman would want, but Hannah already has a boyfriend and they live together. So Hannah settles for being friends with Caleb.

When Hannah‘s boyfriend Conner becomes jealous, Hannah finds out what he is really like and she is scared. Caleb is there to pick up the pieces and lets Hannah stay with him which leads to them falling in love together very quickly. But this is just the beginning of the story. Caleb is keeping something from Hannah and she finds out when she starts working as an assistant for his parent’s chef. Will this secret be the end of Hannah and Caleb or can they work through it?

As I read this book, I didn’t know what to think about Hannah and her choice in men. It seemed she kept going down the wrong road and I wasn’t sure what to think of Caleb and his secret. I was very impressed with the way the author told the story and kept me guessing what would happen next.
