Review: Steal the Light

Steal the Light Steal the Light by Lexi Blake
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

So I ended up finishing the book. I honestly didn't want to. I hated Zoey.. HATED her. She hung on to a guy that ignored her for 5 years. She didn't date, didn't talk to another guy for 5 years and when she does finally go out with another guy.. he is fantastic and charming and hot. So what does she do?? Falls right into the old guys arms when he offers. Not cool Zoey. Also I HATED how often baby was thrown out there. I don't know why it bothers me but everyone was calling everyone baby.

I understand what Lexi Blake was doing with the 2 boys. I have zero issues with love triangles, as long as they are done right and I just didn't like this one. I think because I really, really didn't like Daniel. He was manipulative, he lied, he kept secrets, he ignored her for years, he didn't want anything from her until she went on a date with someone else. And I did like Dev and I feel like he just got screwed in this book. I do NOT understand why he is into Zoey. It makes zero sense. She is kind of a bitch to him.

I will read the next book because the story behind the love relationships is interesting. But Zoey.. I don't know. meh. I really hated her.

Review: Rise of Fire

Rise of Fire Rise of Fire by Sophie Jordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. I have had it since it came out and I have been putting it off because I have heard a lot of negative things but honestly there wasn't really anything I disliked about the book. SO I really have to stop judging books by what other people say. I know that's the whole point of reviews but half the time I don't agree with people.

This book started out right where the last one stopped. Fowler jumped into the dweller hole and Luna went in after him. The book pretty much took off right from there. I feel like there weren't any down parts. I was never bored while listening to it. There was always something going on. That was my problem with the first book.. it was just a lot of them walking and that was boring but this one had a lot more going on. And I honestly enjoyed all of it. I think the ending was perfect. Was it a tad rushed? sure but I still feel like it ended the only way it could and I was completely satisfied after I finished the book. I had no ill feelings for anyone and I thought that the story itself was finished. And there was an epilogue !! So yay Sophie for that!!

Review: Sex, Lies and Vampires

Sex, Lies and Vampires Sex, Lies and Vampires by Katie MacAlister
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well I liked this one better than the others.. Actually I was really enjoying it until about 80% in and then we find out that thing about Adrian and then I hate him for keeping it a secret. Yes that's confusing but I don't want to give it away. But let's just say that I find him less appealing afterwards.. Not because of the actual thing but just because he didn't tell anyone.

But this one was pretty funny. There were times.. okay a lot of times that I wanted to punch Nell. She was immature and she got over things way too quickly. She finds out that imps and vampires and demons are real and she's all 'oh okay. Let's go kick some ass.' I dunno. I go back and forth with her. Adrian seemed like an ok guy. lol.

Ill read the next one because at least this one was better. Hopefully the next one gets better?

Review: Married By Morning

Married By Morning Married By Morning by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book. Leo was so incredibly sweet. Not exactly something I would have thought him capable of, at least not with anyone outside his family and especially not with Cat. But he was the sweetest guy and he said some of the most perfect things ever. Of course I don't remember them but I remember reading them and being like omg marry me.

I loved their banter. They didn't argue like they did before they really knew each other but they still argued.. in a loving way. It was adorable. I like that the relationship wasn't overly serious with a whole bunch of drama. It was a fun relationship. I just freaking loved them together.

The only thing I didn't like about the book was how long it took Cat to accept the proposal. Leo was amazing in every way. I know all her fears were of herself not being good enough but that always just pisses me off. The man would not have given you attention if he thought you weren't good enough. Leo need played mind games. So that just annoyed me.

Now on to the animal lover :)

Review: The Sinner

The Sinner The Sinner by Margaret Mallory
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is the second book I have read from this author and it's another low rating. I don't think she will work for me at all. The men are all assholes. They are highlanders and they are suppose to be cave man ish but Alex was a douche. Which is exactly what I said about Ian in the last book.
Alex proposes and in his proposal he tells Glynis that he won't embarrass her. He will be deseret when he sleeps with other women... I understand that that's just how things were and that at least he was being honest about it.. but gah come on man.

The start of this book was actually okay. I enjoyed the story until they actually slept together. Alex was upfront saying he would never want anything more than sex. Glynis agrees she wants nothing else either but of course she changes her mind and she gets all whiney about it. Some things happen that I won't say because it gives things away but they end up getting married. And that's where it REALLY goes downhill for me. Glynis jumps to conclusions and she is a freaking crying ninny. Alex actually turns out to be somewhat okay after they get married. He promised not to sleep around and he doesn't. There was just so many stupid arguments between the couple. I was so annoyed. I almost stopped reading the book at 80% because it was unbearable.

I don't think I will read the next one.. I think I am done with this series and this author.

Review: Drive Me Wild

Drive Me Wild Drive Me Wild by Christine Warren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of my favorites from this series.. it may be my absolute favorite. It's hard for me to even put into words because all I want to do is ramble on about everything that was awesome in here.

Let's start with Rafe and Tess. I have loved Rafe since the very beginning and I have been waiting patiently (not really) for his book to come along. There has also been a little bit a mystery to him and I like that. Tess is a witch and she's is absolutely perfect for Rafe. Their first encounter, she tries to follow him but keeps tripping and making noises, so Rafe pins her to a wall so they can talk. She is this tiny little lady and she has a huge Jaguar shifter pinning her to a wall and she doesn't let that intimidate her what so ever. She fights back.. not physically but with her wit and sarcasm. I may have just a little bit of a girl crush on Tess. Another thing I loved about her was that even though her grandfather wanted her to gather info on Rafe and the Others.. she didn't. And she didn't try to hide that from Rafe. The others council also asks Rafe to gather info on the witches and he refuses to put Tess in that position.. again I love that.

Really there is a whole bunch of drama with the witches, her grandfather, and then lets not forget the whole curse thing. But the greatest part of the book was the relationship itself. Rafe was sexy as hell.. by far the best love scenes from the whole series. They fall in love pretty fast.. Of course they don't recognize it until the end but it's still there in everything that they do.

I am reluctant to pick up the next book just because this one was everything I would want in a paranormal book and Im afraid I'll be let down by the next. This series has been hit or miss for me and none of them have been like OMG.. except this one.

Review: Fantastical

Fantastical Fantastical by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

10/26/2016--I just listened to the audio for this and it was fantastic!! I was going to say Fantastical but I figured thats just tad bit cheesy :) So glad to finally have the rest of this series in audio!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Does this mean I'm a princess?" I asked He started at me looking annoyed for a second then he say back and signed, "That's what usually happens when a woman marries a prince." ..... "Oh my God, I'm a Princess."
I just want to say why the hell can't I wake up and find out I am married to a prince. I would totally rock at being a princess. sigh.

Cora is one of my favorite heroines of all time. She is brave, funny, lovably and is nice to everyone. I loved how she would just go off on rants and Tor would just sit there. Adorable. She didn't just give up when everyone hated her. Yeah sure she cried for a little bit, had a little pity party but who the hell wouldn't. Hello she woke up in a different world where everyone spat at her! But then she got over it and turned everything around and made the people love her just by being her. And to me the character wasn't like overly fake. You know how it is when they are so nice that its unbelievable. Yeah well Cora wasn't. Kristen Ashley did an amazing job at making an annoyingly nice person 100% lovable.

They spent time in our world!! this is what I have been waiting for! The whole thing with the bad Cora and the other Noc was pretty cool too. I mean kinda sad for the other Noc but I loved that some of the story finally took place in our world.

Cant wait to read the next one!
