Coming for You cover - (un)Conventional BookviewsComing for You (Dirty, Dark and Deadly #3) – J.A. Huss


James, Harper, and Sasha are products of their environment. Born into a secret organization that runs a global shadow government, and taught to kill since they were small, they find themselves both indispensable and expendable to all the people they used to trust.
Twenty-eight year old James Fenici has been an assassin since he was sixteen. He’s amassed debts and favors from countless Company brothers and participated in hundreds of Company jobs. But there are not enough favors in the world to clear his debt and make him worthy of the only girl he’s ever wanted.
Eighteen year old Harper Tate is the girl who doesn’t exist. Born and raised on a megayacht in a tropical paradise, she was destined to be a secret until now. No history, no records, and taught to have no opinions or ambition of her own, Harper is suddenly presented with more choices than she can handle.
Thirteen year old Sasha Cherlin is the girl who knows everything and understands nothing at all. Her future is filled with vengeance and death, but her dreams are filled with hope and a promise. A promise who no longer wants her.
The game is on, the pieces are in place, and the players have everything to lose. But who can you trust when everyone’s a traitor?


So, I am preparing what I am going to do for my MA thesis, even if I still have time. And thanks to my class called Romance and its Remediation, where we have read romances from medieval times and up to the 20th century, I figured, why not take one of the romance tropes and some contemporary stories I really love and go from there? So, I will write on love triangles and what they do for the character development of the main character (or something like that). And I’m using The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi and The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins as my primary sources. Therefore, I needed the paperbacks, so I can quote and cite passages with page numbers an all that.

Giveaway Wins:

I won this one with the necklace and two bookmarks from author Chantal Fernando in a giveaway a while back, and the book arrived this week. I’m excited to read it!

Maybe This TimeMaybe This Time – Chantal Fernando


Moving in with my half-brother Xander, I had no idea what to expect.
But nothing could have prepared me for this.
My brother’s friends are wild, protective, secretive, always around.
And drop dead gorgeous.
Out of all of them, there’s something about Reid Knox.
Brooding, temperamental, guarded…
And I want him more than anything I have ever wanted in my life.

Did you get some exciting-looking books this week? Remember to leave me your link so I can check out your Stacking the Shelves and or Bought, Borrowed and Bagged post, too :) Thanks for stopping by! Have a spectacular Saturday.
