[Audiobook Review] Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

I was so excited to read this book. I loved the Darkest Mind trilogy. Plus this book had time travel, pirates and cute boys. Sadly it didn’t live up to my expectations. I had such a hard time getting into this book that I ended up buying the audiobook. The story was so long that I know there times I zoned out. I was just expecting more excitement and swashbuckling times but instead was more like action, drone on and on, and then maybe a little more action again. I have to give Passenger three stars because it ended up… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah Maclean

I like this book a lot but I have come to expect nothing less from a Sarah Maclean book. The Rogue Not Taken had everything I look for in a historical romance: hot chemistry, witty dialogue, and of course a romance that can make me smile with joy.     The Rogue Not Taken is about a young woman named Sophie. Her and her sisters are known as the Soiled S or the Dangerous Daughters because their names are always in the scandal sheets. Their father bought their way into the aristocracy. The best thing I can compare them to,… Read more »

After I have had more time to think about how I feel after reading this book, I find myself giving it more of a 3 star rating than a 4 star. I felt that the story started out strong. It is about a guy named Thomas who can’t remember a thing about his mother’s murder. He meets up with Charlotte the only person in town to give him the time of day and they begin looking into the death of his murder. I like the idea of a who done it murder mystery with some sexy romance thrown in. I… Read more »

[Review] Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott

I have to admit that Wild Reckless was on my radar after I saw it as a nominee on Goodreads Choice Awards. Then I read the synopsis and I thought this was a book right up my alley. I am sure if you have read my reviews then you know by now that I am sucker for all things romance. Wild Reckless is about a new girl falling for the town bad boy. I don’t know it was a good story but I just felt it was pretty generic. After I spent time going over my thoughts I realized that… Read more »

[Review] How to Seduce a Scot by Christy English

I don’t know why but it took me a couple of tries to get into How to Seduce a Scot. I think I had to be in the right mind set to read this book. I discovered it is the right kind of book to read while on vacation a book that would help me relax. I needed a good romance that would provide that happy feeling that only a good happily ever after can provide. How to Seduce a Scot is definitely the kind of story I was looking to escape into while I was on a mini vacation…. Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Winter by Marissa Meyer

  I think this review is going to be short and sweet. I am going to try to keep spoilers out of it. I have a feeling this review is going to into the ramblings of a fangirl. I loved Winter!!! There I said it. I don’t know if the majority will agree with me but I loved Winter. It was a long epic journey that ended just the way I wanted it to.     I love fairytales and sci-fi/fantasy.   What is there not love about a series that is like Once Upon a Time meets Stars Wars?  When I… Read more »

[Review] The Irresistible Rogue by Valerie Bowman

I have been told over again throughout my life that I have an old soul. Growing up I was not the preteen that was too cool for school. I was the girl that rented all the classic black and white movies from the video store. One of my favorite classics was The Philadelphia Story. It was a movie about a man trying to win back the love of his ex-wife. The thing I loved most about this movie was the witty repartee between the main characters. I loved the fast talking wit that would have me laughing hysterically. When I… Read more »

[Review] Need by Joelle Charbonneau

When I first started reading this book I had trouble getting into it. I put it to the side and hoped that the aid of audiobook narration could help bring the book to life for me. Unfortunately, even two amazing narrators couldn’t make this story a stellar experience. In the end, I didn’t really like Need but I didn’t totally hate it either. Need was just one those stories with an intriguing and fast paced plot to me interested but falls flat in the end. I am giving Need three stars because it wasn’t bad just a mediocre and shrug… Read more »

[ARC Review] Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Over the years I have become a big Jennifer Estep fan. I love her Spider Elemental series. I love to read Young Adult novels as well. It seemed like a perfect match when Jennifer Estep’s Cold Burn of Magic the first book in the Black Blade series came out. I liked the first book it did a good of job of setting the story up and still that keeping that urban fantasy feel. If it is possible I liked Dark Heart of Magic even more, the second book in the Black Blade series. I like Jennifer Estep’s urban fantasy books,… Read more »

[ARC Review] Walk Through Fire by Kristen Ashley

This year I have become a big fan of Kristen Ashley. I love the men and women that make up the world of Chaos MC. That being said, I liked Walk Through Fire but I didn’t love it. It did take me a while to get through this book because while liked Millie and High’s story I just didn’t connect with it the way I did with the story in Ride Steady. I think what kept this book from dropping below four stars is that cast of supporting characters I have come to love so much. I love the antics… Read more »
