Review: End Game – Lisa Renee Jones

Review: End Game – Lisa Renee Jones

End Game brought a lot of pain to some of the characters, with the aftermath of the incredible cliffhanger in Bad Deeds… I loved the character growth in End Game, the depth this brought to various relationships, and the tension that was so thick it could be cut with a butcher knife. The suspense was breath-taking, and I had trouble sitting still while reading. The emotional pain the characters felt was tangible, and I had no idea how they would get through the incredibly difficult time they were facing. End Game took care of many loose ends, but not all. And there might be a story about one of the side characters from Dirty Money in the future. I, for […]

Review: Hard Rules – Lisa Renee Jones

Review: Hard Rules – Lisa Renee Jones

Hard Rules is a suspenseful read, but I found the first half to be too slow… Things definitely picked up towards the end, though, and I’m happy to have the next book already on my kindle! Hard Rules had characters with so many secrets it almost made me dizzy! Emily and Seth met by chance, and Emily was on edge from the beginning. They met again the same day, after Seth finished work, and he persuaded her to have dinner with him – and then he brought her home with him. Their attraction was hot and instant, and for the first part of the book, that was the main part of the story. Attraction, seduction, secrets, and lust. The slowness […]

Review: Riding Steele – Opal Carew

Review: Riding Steele – Opal Carew

Riding Steele is a fast and hard ride, with gritty but loveable characters, a despicable ex-boyfriend and the open road ahead. My Riding Steele review: Both Laurie and Steele are interesting characters to follow, and Riding Steele had a very hard edge to it. Both because Laurie was trying to get away from her abusive boyfriend, Donovan, and because one of Steele’s rider buddies saved her, only to kidnap her in order to keep her safe. Needless to say, Laurie thinks she’s gone from one bad situation to a worse one – being held by a group of bikers in the middle of the woods is not her idea of being saved. The chemistry between Laurie and Steele is scorching […]

Review: Dirty Wings – Sarah McCarry

Review: Dirty Wings – Sarah McCarry

*I received a free ARC of Dirty Wings from St. Martin’s Press / St. Martin’s Griffin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Dirty Wings is one of the strangest stories I have read in a very long time! No real plot, no real explanation, but a wonderful friendship between two girls who seemingly have nothing in common. My Dirty Wings review: Dirty Wings is kind of a non-story in some ways. Let me explain what I mean: we meet Maia who is a prodigy piano player, she is playing, then chatting with her teacher Oscar after finishing her lesson. Her whole life is centered around the piano, and her life goal (or at least her parents’ life goal […]

Review: Illusion (Chronicles of Nick #5) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Review: Illusion (Chronicles of Nick #5) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Illusion is the fifth installment in the Chronicles of Nick, and it picks up just after the ending of Inferno. And Nick is so confused when he finds himself at a party, with many of his friends present, but they all seem slightly different from usual. And he’s very different, he’s shorter, has blond hair and it seems Bubba is his dad. Talk about waking up in an alternate universe! What is most confusing to him, however, is the fact that he can’t feel his powers at all. I enjoyed myself all through the story of Illusion; Nick, even in a smaller and weaker body and with no powers to speak of, is a strong character, and he will fight […]

Review: Inferno (Chronicles of Nick #4) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Review: Inferno (Chronicles of Nick #4) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Inferno is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Nick series, and it brought the whole story back on track for me. I wasn’t all that happy with Infamous, because that felt too much like a filler than an actual novel to me. With Inferno, though, my love for Nick and the whole Dark Hunter world made sense again, even if I’m still not completely happy with the time-travel aspect of the story. Yes, yes, I know, it’s fiction, and time travel cannot even happen in the real world. But still, most stories that deal with time travel follow some time/space continuum rules, that are not followed in the Chronicles of Nick, and it confuses me! Subscribe to Blog via […]

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Infamous was not as satisfying as I had hoped it would be when I started reading. It really felt like a filler book. There was not a lot of progress being made, Nick was younger than in the other instalments, and he was learning little by little what his powers were, or would become. Also, neither Nick or the readers know who he can trust, except for the obvious people, being his mom, Acheron and Kyrian. At the same time, knowing that Nick from the future is coming to give advice to young Nick in the book it is difficult to know exactly how the relationship between Ash and Nick will develop. I usually love it when someone is able […]

Review: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker #2) – Jenna Black

Review: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker #2) – Jenna Black

Oh Dana, how naive you were in your bargain!  I was sure the way it was worded meant exactly what it meant, but I had no idea just how bad things would be, even if she decides later herself to actually go through with it. Shadowspell did show Dana’s growth, though. This had a lot more action, and apart from being to naive in one instance, Dana was great!  She already grew a lot in the first book, and in this, that growth continued.  I love that she has a girlfriend, although Kimber was less present than in Glimmerglass.
