I honestly had little interest in consuming more milk from this overused cash cow, but the library had it. Part of me was curious, so since I didn’t have to pay for it, I figured, what the hell? Grey’s Fifty Shades of Fucked-Up POV was actually better than I expected, and I especially loved not having to listen to Ana’s uber annoying inner goddess....more

I really liked this one, and I could have loved it if the uber bitchy secondary character, Madison, hadn’t nearly hijacked and ruined the story. I hated her character (like seriously hated on the same level that I loathed Nan from Abbi Glines’s Rosemary Beach series), and she had way too much continual pull on both Jackson and Mollie. But this was still an engaging romance that I enjoyed!...more

Ronan...Rawrr...What can I say, ladies and gents? He is one of the sexiest, sweetest, naughtiest, funniest, dreamiest, yummiest, most devoted and protective, and downright deliciously dirty heroes I’ve had the immense pleasure of reading and fantasizing about in quite a while.
I might have been a little mesmerized for a moment as I took in the sight of her shapely backside. It was incredible. I just wanted to spank it and bite it and worship it and completely fucking defile it.
“I’ve always wanted you to eat me like an éclair.”
OH MY! Yes, please!
Annie, on the other hand, drove me nuts at times. I understood her shyness and awkwardness and sympathized with her abandonment issues and fears. I also found certain aspects of her personality endearing, especially her hilarious tendency to spout nonsensical swear words and phrases when she’s nervous. I heard her mutter, “Crappity, crap, crapper. Fuck a duck and smack a rapper...” However, her continued reluctance and resistance to Ronan really baffled, annoyed, and frustrated me. But I cheered (view spoiler)[at the end when she finally found her courage and put all her virtual blog cards on the table to prove her love to Ronan (hide spoiler)].
This is one of my favorite reads so far for 2015, and Ronan is a swoon-worthy romance hero who’s not to be missed!

This is a short, sweet, and feel-good holiday treat for Sawyer and Chloe fans! And I thought Sawyer was the most perfectly swoonalicious, protective hero before (in Head Over Heels)?!!! *Content, dreamy sigh*
I just wish it had been longer and that we’d find out their (view spoiler)[baby girl’s name (hide spoiler)]. I really hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of this endearing couple. I’d love another novella about their life together (as a family) a little further down the road!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

I really enjoyed this! Anna drove me nuts to the point that I honestly didn’t understand why Drew even bothered with her, but I ended up liking her better towards the latter part of the book. Drew was a besotted sweetheart for the most part, despite a few asshat moments near the end. The sex scenes were smoking hot! I wanted a bit more from the ending but the epilogue was nice. I’m looking forward to Gray’s book, the, The Friend Zone....more

This quote from Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars perfectly expresses my feelings about this book.
“My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.”
I’m just incapable of coherently and intelligently expressing my myriad, jumbled mix of thoughts and emotions about this astoundingly beautiful, resonant, insightful, heartbreaking, funny, existential, quirky, charming, poignant, and unforgettable love story.
The Fault in Our Stars eloquently emphasizes the inherent and indomitable privilege and gift in simply loving someone. It’s a book that left me emotionally gutted, inspired and uplifted, and reverently awed over the transformative power of the written word. Hazel and Gus will stay with me, forever....more

I’m a big fan of this author, and I’ve enjoyed all of her previous books. I loved the idea of this book, but unfortunately, it just didn’t quite deliver on the immense potential of such an intriguing, original twist and premise. There was way too much H/h inner monologue and time spent deliberating and lamenting over secrets...her secrets...his secrets...their secrets...it was exasperating, overly dramatic, and repetitive. The self-imposed denial, longing, sadness, and suffering by both the H/h seemed pointless and extreme, and the story dragged at times. Then when things actually, finally, progressed and picked up momentum, all the prior issues and drama wrapped up too quickly, easily, and neatly with a somewhat abrupt, dissatisfying ending.
Overall, I liked this, but it was still a disappointment for me, especially considering my high expectations. Luckily, I listened to the audiobook version and the fantastic narrator enhanced my enjoyment of the story....more
