[ARC Review] The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey

Amy's Reviews, ARC Reviews, Reviews 0 Comments

01 November

I thought this book was going to be a romantic comedy.  Some sweet sexy fluffy romance that I would fly right through, you know brain candy.  For some people that is probably exactly what this story was for them.  For me, though this was a classic case of: it’s not you it’s me.  Because, in the end there was way too much angst for a story that is advertised as a romantic comedy.  Once I got over my initial disappointment, I actually liked The Fortunate Ones.  This story ended up being a decent read.  Not bad, not great, but not a waste of time either.  , The story starts off with Brooke a… Read more »

The Ghostwriter By Alessandra Torre Genre: Psychological Suspense / General Fiction Standalone, 316 pages   SYNOPSIS: I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me. My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers.

This final… Read more »

[Review] Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

07 September

*Warning* This review does not have any Fallen Heir spoilers but does contain some spoilers regarding the first three book in the Royals series.     Don’t hate me but Easton is not my favorite Royal.   I think Reed and Ella are and always be my favorite characters. I have always thought Easton was a self-absorbed entitled jerk. Sure, he connected with Ella and became someone she could trust and a brother she never had. But, Easton has addiction issues that stem from mental health issues. He needs professional help. I am not saying that as a negative thing…. Read more »

[Review] The Sham by Ellen Allen

The author contacted me on Goodreads after seeing my review of The Walled City. Her book is nothing like the other, but it was still an interesting ride. Cleavesham is a small town with the usual small town cliques and the usual small town drama. Everyone is related to everyone else, it seems. Even our main character is related, through marriage to other kids in her class. The book starts out with a dead body, bled out on the floor of Emily’s family’s shop. That’s pretty shocking, how did it get there? What is even happening? Of course the book… Read more »

[Review] Overload Flux by Carol Van Natta

This book tried to do a lot of things, and I commend it for that. It was certainly different and had some very interesting chunks. Unfortunately, it didn’t maintain momentum for me and I never fully grew attached to any of the characters despite having ample fodder to do so. The first of our main characters, Mairwen, is a enhancement modified contract killer who left the field and is living as a night security guard so that no one finds her. The program that built her isn’t one to let go of their acquisitions lightly. As of yet, with the… Read more »

[Review] The Sign of the Weeping Virgin by Alana White

21 November

Sometimes, when you love a book, you just can’t get through it fast enough. You devour its entirety swiftly, and in the blink of an eye, it is complete. Other times when you love a book, you truly need to just savor it slowly, relishing the sensation as if to prolong the experience. The Sign of the Weeping Virgin was certainly in the latter category for me; I enjoyed every aspect of this book so much that I took a very long time to complete it. This book came into my hands when I was contacted by the author, Alana White, who after… Read more »

[Arc Review] Havoc by Ann Aguirre

Ah, I’m so glad to be back in the Conglomerate system with Ann Aguirre’s five dollar words and no held punches. I’ve missed it. The scope is still small, as the prison ship Perdition continues to contain our lively group of misfit protagonists. They still have two opposing territories to worry about attacks from, Mungo’s cannibals and Silence’s tongueless assassins (and the alien faction that lives in the underbelly, but they’re not one for petty battles). Yet, the opening of the book is full of laser fire and a docking ship full of mercenaries armed to the teeth. It’s clear… Read more »

[Review] Til The World Ends by Julie Kagawa, Ann Aguirre and Karen Duval

There was this one time Ann Aguirre was giving away books if you signed up for her email newsletter and this was the only book on the list that I hadn’t read or didn’t own. It includes her short story Thistle and Thorn, which I’ve seen her tweet about people demanding more from that universe. I figured it’s about time to see what the fuss is about. Dawn of Eden (4.5 stars) The first novella in the book is by Julie Kagawa, whom, wait for it, I’ve never read a single thing from. Gasp! I know! How did that happen?… Read more »

[Review] If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones

30 June

Every so often I need to read something completely frivolous. Something akin to a chocolate cupcake or bag of potato chips, only for my mind. If I Were You fit that critera perfectly. Part mystery and part hot sex, it kept me interested from page one all the way to the cliffhanger. Sarah McMillan is a high school English teacher, on summer break, who, because her friend decided to go all Storage Wars and then leave the country, is saddled with a storage unit to clean out and inventory. What she finds inside are saucy journals and the entirety of the… Read more »
