    4.5 Stars! Kemmerer won me over years ago with her Elemental series and with each new book, regardless of the genre, she continues to wow me. With her fleshed out characters, stand out story lines and heartfelt messages, she is an author I count on to give me a good story that is ev...

    This book was heavy. But I absolutely loved it. It has heartbreak, love, betrayal, backstabbing, lies, and just drama but not stupid high school drama. No, this drama is the kind that just suffocates your heart until you don't think you can breathe until it leaves you gasping. This kin...

    Rob and Maegan's story is out in the world today, friends! The idea for this book started when I said to myself, "What if I took Robin Hood ... and put him in a modern day high school?" I hope you love the story, and I can't wait to hear what you think. Thank you all so much for being ...

    I blew through this in no time because - per usual - Brigid Kemmerer writes compelling situations, nuanced characters and really freaking adorable romances. If you're looking for a great contemporary, look no further. ...

    **ARC sent to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review** I won?t lie to you guys-I begged for this book. It wasn?t classy. It wasn?t dignified. And it was honestly a bit pathetic-but IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT. This book? It?s gold. I loved every minute of it. I...

    Thank you, Bloomsbury, for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. We were from two different worlds once: popular boy and nerdy girl. We're still from two different worlds: cop's daughter and criminal's son. Brigid Kemmerer has officially become one of my...

    the other day, i took a break from reading this to go run some errands. and as i was in the produce section, looking at the bananas, all i could think was 'maegan and rob better live happily ever after or, so help me, someone will hear about it.' if a book that prompts that kind of ang...

    My hEART belongs to Brigid Kemmerer contemporaries ok. I will full on softly cry on your arm right now, because I really loved this book, plus it stressed me most wholly out. And then the ending was the perfect mix of heartbreak and satisfying roundedness that I just want melt into thi...

    I am always impressed when authors are able to successfully alternate between genres. I have read A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY from this author not so long ago and it was an incredible fantasy. CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT is a contemporary romance devoid of any magic and curses, but it?s a g...

    My brain clicks, and for an instant, he?s not Rob Lachlan now, he?s Rob Lachlan from a year ago. We were from two different words once: popular boy and nerdy girl. We?re still from two different worlds: cop?s daughter and criminal?s son. I enjoyed some parts of this book...

    [4.5?] I?m gonna need Brigid Kemmerer to never stop writing her contemporaries. Her stories fill my soul right up. They?re always so intense, so heart-aching, with such wonderfully flawed and beautiful characters that are alive on those pages. She has a knack for writi...

    I've only read A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer, but I think I'm starting to become a fan! I also saw her speak at a pannel last year and she seriously seems like such a funny and an incredibly down-to-earth person! Two character POVs. First we get Maegan, who I will ad...

    Call It What You Want is thefourth book that I've read from Brigid Kemmerer. I first fell in love with her writing style in Letters To The Lost. That was the first contemporary that I honestly thoroughly enjoyed but, before that the contemporary genre was a mystery to me. And since t...
