Review: A Taste for a Mate

A Taste for a Mate A Taste for a Mate by Carrie Ann Ryan
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I had a lot of issues with this book but honestly it was a lot better than I thought it would be. So that's something. Willow was a terribly weak character. She gets kidnapped, collared and beaten because Jasper's scent was in her bakery. She doesn't care. She finds out werewolves are real.. again she doesn't care. Jasper bites her and makes her come in front of the enemies and his family.. she's embarrassed but says nothing about it. Jasper made her his mate without asking.. she doesn't care. She has to close up her bakery.. doesn't care. Do you see a pattern? She just takes whatever is thrown at her with out so much as a word. Like literally she doesn't say anything about any of it! OH and the worse thing she does happens towards the end. They get back to their home from finding a dead body in the woods. They get into a fight and she runs back out in the woods. TSTL! I can't.. I really just can't handle her.

I liked the Redwood pack though. To be honest I don't remember reading the first book... But I rated it with 1 star. the only reason I picked this one up was because it was free.. and I will read the next one (it's also free) because I enjoyed the pack and I kind of want to see how the next one plays out. I know it's MMF.. so Im interested. we'll see!

Review: The Thief

The Thief The Thief by J.R. Ward
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I both liked and hated this book. I am extremely happy that Jane and V figured out their shit.. even though they have done that before and fell back into disaster so lets hope it sticks this time. But I generally love them as a couple and as separate people. So I am happy that they are happy. And I am happy that we kind of see a "sweeter" side to V. Sweeter isn't the right word. But I can't think of what exactly I mean. He becomes more open in this book. So yay.

Now for Sola and Assail.. I just did not like them. Assail.. well I guess I kind of liked him. He was sweet and never failed in his love for Sola. I mean he lied and hid things but he was always up front with his feelings so thats good. Sola.. oh Sola. I loved her before this book. She was strong and her own person. In this book she was a bitch. I hated that she refused to go back to see a dying Assail. She got better int he middle. But then when she found out about vampires.. I wanted to kill her. She was terrible. So yeah I just wasn't a fan of them here. I hope in a book later on will help me like them better.

Besides the characters.. the story was good. The new evil is interesting... a little creepy with Throe basically fucking a book but to each their own. I hated how this book ended. There are so so many questions. I feel like nothing was resolved. Hell even Sola and Assail's relationship isn't perfectly resolved. At least not in my eyes. They are together but I just feel like the end was so rushed. After I finished I didn't feel satisfied with the ending. I will say that I am SO offing excited for Murhder!!!

Review: The Wright Love

The Wright Love The Wright Love by K.A. Linde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am so excited that I got to read this book. Sutton is such a strong woman. I am utterly amazed by her. I love how she slowly took control of her life and her happiness. David was also an amazing character. He was so sweet and he took everything at Sutton's pace. I am in love with him. I think they are perfect and I am loving how their relationship is coming together.

Now I will be honest.. I have only read one of the other stories about the Wright family.. which you do not have to read the others to enjoy this one.. BUT it makes me want to read all the others.(seriously I just bought all the other ones) I am completely obsessed with the Wright family. They are so supportive and loving of each other. I need to know each and every one of their stories.

This book will make you cry.. I mean I cried a lot.. and that ending!! Major cliff hanger but Linde told us that ahead of time and the second book comes out at the end of the month so there isn't a long wait.. yeah not long.. Im not crying for the second book right now.. not at all.

ARC was given to me by the author.

Review: When Evil Comes To Play

When Evil Comes To Play When Evil Comes To Play by B.L. Brunnemer
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

I loved this book. I finished it in one sitting and it was fantastic. You definitely should read Found the first book in Brunnemer's Books of Stone series before reading this one. It isn't 100% necessary but there is a crossover and if you haven't read Found yet it ruins that book for you and it just adds a bit more to the characters. Plus it's a decent book (even if it isn't RH :)

I can not even begin to tell you how much I love that we got the guys POV in this book. This should have been happening from the start. It is so so good! and I feel like I know the characters so much better now.

There is so much that happens in this book. So many thing that I did NOT see happening. I am excited for the next one... even if I have no idea when that will be. But I am still looking forward to Lexie's next move!

Review: My Commander

My Commander My Commander by Alanea Alder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I freaking loved this book. It was utterly ridiculous and I laughed so so hard. There was a part where Meryn starts her cycle and Aiden knew nothing about it. He gets his freaking ALPHA team together to get tampons like it was a damn mission. They were all so serious about it. I honestly laughed for a solid 5 minutes. I had to play it for my co workers and they laughed for 5 minutes. Seriously. I am laughing right now just thinking about it.

If you don't like that kind of over the top silly humor then this is not the book for you. If you need a good laugh and don't care that it's silly then pick this shit up. Because it was hilarious.

Review: Dragonmark

Dragonmark Dragonmark by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I have put this book off for a very long time. No particular reason I just didn't feel like it was worth the 18 whatever dollars for the audiobook. But I finally used one of my credits for it this month and I am so so disappointed. We got little tiny peaks at llarion in the last couple book and I was excited for his book... I still think he seems to be a cool dragon but the problem with this book is that the last half of it was a repeat of Son of No One and Dragonmark.. I just finished re-reading those books last weekend.. I didn't want to read a book with the same damn story. I understand that it's a part of llarion's story but I feel like it could have been brushed over. I mean the 10 years he spent with Edilyn in the underworld fey realm. I honestly do not understand why it was retold. Especially since the POV wasn't all Ilarion. I am not happy at all about that.

Also we didn't get any part of what Edilyn was up. I mean for christ sake (view spoiler) We don't get to know Edilyn like at all.

I just don't understand this book. It wasn't even it's own book. Not really. It was too much the same story as the last 2 books.

This is my calmed down. I finished this book this morning and if I would have written my review then it would have been baaaad. So bad. I am mad I wasted an audible credit on it.

Review: Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by Kerrelyn Sparks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This wasn't my favorite.. It was good but Something about Silas bothered me. Maybe because everything was a joke to him? He was very sarcastic to the point that I had no idea when he was being serious. I don't know but I really didn't like him. And Gwennore wasn't much better. She kept falling all over Silas even when he lied to her. So yeah the characters in this book weren't my favorite.. Now the story itself was really good. I loved the idea behind the cursed barbarians. So that part was good. But the characters kind of brought the whole thing down for me.
