Until Jax by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Time for some honesty… Since I didn’t love Until July, I didn’t have high expectations for Until Jax. For some reason I expected Ellie to be flaky, and so sucked up in the victim mentality that I would hate reading about her character. I also expected for Jax and Ellie to play the cat and mouse game until all avenues were exhausted so the last resort would be for them to finally get together. What really happened… I loved Until Jax from beginning to end! Ellie was perfect, Jax was alpha perfection, and little Hope was too precious for words. Despite my reservation (mentioned previously) I was curious as to how the story was going to progress after July and Ellie were rescued. I was curious as to how the villains were going to be unmasked and what extra dangers Ellie would face. Except for the ending (I’ll talk about […]

Where Darkness Lies by Bella Jewel

Why the heck did I wait so long to finish Where Darkness Lies?! Reading and loving this story has made me feel safe to read anything and everything that Bella Jewel writes. I loved Where Darkness Lies! Bella Jewel’s Criminals of the Ocean series came at the perfect time for me, I had been wanting to read a good pirate story, whether it was historical or modern day I wanted to read it. When I began reading I dragged my feet because I didn’t want to go from reading about Hendrick’s dominant/jerk character type to Dimitri’s (what I perceived) whinny/’I need revenge’ character type. Luckily when I got over that perception I decided that I would just read and take him as he came. I then consumed this book. Jess/Blair was an amazing female character. I loved everything about her. She was amazingly written and relatable. The way she was […]

When I Fall by J. Daniels

What I might say next could be considered blasphemous to all the Alabama Summer fans out there, but When I Fall is the first book out of this series that I have read. Let the outrage begin… Believe me I know the injustice I’ve done to myself. When I Fall was amazing from beginning to end. Before I even opened its pages I was giddy to read it, and I was not disappointed. One thing that shocked me was how Reed’s attitude towards relationships didn’t irritate me as much as it would if he were a female. I can’t explain why some things irritate me and others don’t. Beth’s character was so refreshing, she gave without expecting anything in return, and only hoped for love. She had such a heart-breaking journey to get to the place she’s in once she hits Alabama, that I was rooting for her all through […]

Liability by C.A. Rose

I have to admit there was a lot of confusion surrounding Liability‘s release. For one, I was under the impression that the Alfha Law Firm series was written and published under Aurora Rose Reynolds. Secondly, I didn’t know if Liability was a teaser into the full book or not. Lo and behold Aurora Rose Reynolds pulled a fast one on us all, she’s writing under a new pen name, C.A. Rose! Thought: I wonder if she’ll place Justified under this pen name? Based off the synopsis we got of the book, I truly didn’t know what to expect. I knew, of course, there would be alpha males, but what I didn’t know was how this book would continue the Alfha Law Firm series. Once I finished I realized that the books in this series would be loosely connected since they work at the same firm, and be under the same theme, […]

The Lies Between Us by M.N. Forgy

I hate that The Lies Between Us had to be my first 3 star review by this author because I’ve really been looking towards to reading it. The first half of this book I was hooked. I was sucked into every obstacle and heartbreaking moment that Lindsay aka Cherry faced. When she then met Lip, I was all for them going forward in their relationship. They fit each other so perfectly. Things started going downhill for me around the same time that things were going downhill for Cherry, which happened to be when Lip went to jail. I was very suspect, as was Cherry (I’m telling you, me and her character were on the same brainwave) about his behavior during her visits. Once everything was revealed, Lip was out of jail, and Cherry was supremely invested in her new family with the Devil’s Dust MC, things started to become less […]

Tainted Black by Shanora Williams

I really wasn’t going to write a review on Tainted Black because I was too into my feelings immediately after I finished reading. Now that’s its been a good 30-45 mins. after, I realized that I have to get these feelings down on paper and eventually out to the book world before I go from a book hangover to a book coma. I think I came across Tainted Black through my many searches for books on Amazon, and after reading the synopsis I placed it on my wish list. As I was contemplating purchasing this book, I ran across some reviews on Goodreads, simply because I couldn’t shake the feeling that I needed this book in my life (little did I know at the time that I was absolutely right). It was thanks to a review done by a good book friend of mine, Jodi, that I went ahead and one-clicked […]

Charlie Foxtrot by Lani Lynn Vale

I have been anticipating Charlie Foxtrot since we were introduced to Blake when she confronted Foster in the diner. That scene was like a bell being rung, signaling the start of a battle to submission between Foster and Blake. Boom, right then I knew that Blake would be the challenge that Foster needed to get out of the funk that had surrounded him since his incident in Execution Style. I loved how we were able to learn about Foster and Blake in their own chapter before the author placed them in scenarios that would show us how perfect a fit they would be. By doing this the author effectively showed where each character stood, emotionally, as well as the demons they would be battling to overcome throughout the book. I have to say that Blake’s background broke my heart more than Foster’s. In no way am I comparing their level of […]
