I didn’t gobble this book up in one sitting like I thought I would but slowly savored it over a few days. Why? Because I never wanted to let go of the story. I think this book is my favorite of the series. I liked the first three books but they were about spoiled, naïve, and broody kids that had still had a lot of growing up to do. This book is about change. Not just change in the direction of the of the overall story but change with the characters themselves. I loved that this book above all the… Read more »

I liked this book. It was a start to a series. As such there is a lot of world building which I really liked. I picked up this book because I really liked the idea of this post war zone New Orleans. I felt like at times there was just too much build up and not enough action. There times I was really engrossed in the story and at other times I it was just meh. That is why I am giving The Veil three stars because it was just an okay and shrug kind of read.   The story… Read more »

[Review] Rome by Jay Crownover

It is official I am addicted to the stories of the men and women the Marked Men series. It was this book that sealed the deal. I liked Rule and Jet but, Oh Man, I really liked Rome. Rome is a moody ex-soldier trying to find a place for himself in civilian life. Cora is colorful, a loud mouth, and just wants to find her happily ever after. I liked this book so much because while it was moody and both characters could be jerks. I liked that were “perfectly imperfect” together.   Rome is Rule’s brother from book one… Read more »

Sometimes I think you have to be the mood for the book you are reading.  At first when I started reading this book I thought it was going to be another Sherlock Holmes retelling and I guess I wasn’t in the mood for it.  I was finally able to into the groove of this book and I ended up liking this well enough.  If Trouble is a Friend of Mine was a movie I would say I liked it but would recommend it as a rental. It was basically light fluff, good and decent but something you watch on Netflix when you just… Read more »

  I think this book has potential to become a favorite but right now it was good and liked it well enough. I am curious for more. I think this story spent way too much time on the instalust and not enough time explaining what was going on. I was confused about everything except that Piper got all hot and gooey every time Zane was around. I mean I would have liked more explained about the Reaper war that is coming. I would have actually liked a training montage. I think this story is broken up into short volumes so… Read more »

I read the first book in this series last year and I adored it. I don’t know what happened because I was sure I would love watching the Aurelia and Max fall in love because I loved their bickering in A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin. If love is a battlefield then All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue felt like it was ripe with land mines. One minute the couple is fighting, then next they are kissing, then they are fighting again, then next they not speaking to each other, then they are kissing again and on and on… Read more »

I am big fan of Katie MacAlister’s world of dragons since I read You Slay Me. I knew I would like the world of Dragon Fall but I think the ending fell a little flat.  I am giving Dragon Fall three stars because I liked it well enough. Dragon Fall is the love story for Drake’s brother, the love interest in You Slay Me, Kostya. Kostya has was held hostage for many years, then fell in lust with a naiad, and she left him for another male. Now a curse has fallen over the dragon clans. Kostya wakes up naked in with… Read more »

I feel like this book has been on the top of to read pile for a while now. I don’t know why I didn’t pick it up. I am glad I did because in the end I liked it and I know there will be more men from the Marked series in my future.     Rule was a little hard for me to get into at first but I think that was because I picked up this book trying to get over a book hangover from the book I had just read. Once I got into this book and… Read more »

[ARC Review] Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson

Sometimes I am in the mood for some light and entertaining reading. Rebel Mechanics fulfilled my wishes in that regard. I started this book at work and had it read by the time I went to bed that night. I am giving Rebel Mechanics four stars because I really liked the world of magic and mechanics. It was a quick, fun and very entertaining read. Rebel Mechanics is set in the year 1888 in New York City. This is not the New York City one would know from the history books. America is still a colony of the British Empire,… Read more »

If you are like me and already a fan of Miranda Kenneally then you know that her books are super cute romances about following the heart and making dreams come true. With that being said I really liked Jesse’s girl. What is there not to like about a sexy country music super star that sings songs about riding around on his big tractor?     I really liked this book because it was an easy breezy read. I sat down and the book in less than five hours. The book has a super cheesy plot line but somehow it works…. Read more »
