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.(less)
Bold Tricks ended up being the best of the series, IMO, other than On Every Street, which is still my favorite. I didn’t hate Ellie nearly as much this time around as in the previous books, which was quite refreshing. And even more shocking...I actually liked her in certain moments, albeit grudgingly.
This is a thrilling suspense read with an assassin antihero reminiscent of an Anne StuartIce-man.
My favorite quote:
(view spoiler)[She looks defeated. Beautiful and soft and damaged standing there before me partially clothed in the light of the moon beaming through the tall window. Beautiful, but defeated. That look in her eyes, it somehow latches onto my soul and all I want is for her to turn and walk away. Because I know that if she doesn't, if she presses me further with those soft lips and sad, vulnerable eyes that I'll succumb to the moment and either fuck her or kill her.(hide spoiler)]
I can't wait for the next book, Reviving Izabel!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)
And why did I find it so crazy addictive, unputdownable, and entertaining?!? This book is not PC or a sugarcoated depiction of a motorcycle club, but that’s probably part of what makes it so gripping. As I said in my Undeniable review, maybe I shouldn’t have enjoyed this so much, but shamelessly, I did. And I can’t wait for Cage and Tegen’s book!(less)

Holy alien babies!!!! A++mazeballs!!!!
This is definitely the best book of the series. I absolutely looooooved Daemon in this and getting his POV made the story more powerful. It has an awesome mix of emotionally intense drama, kick-ass action, horror, humor, suspense, and swoon-worthy romance. But damn...it’s also got another killer cliffhanger.

This is a total train wreck (or horrific motorcycle accident), but it’s also wildly, chocolate coated crack addictive! It has a somewhat Kristen Ashley vibe but ramped up about 500% in the crazy department. Seriously, the characters in this story make the people on Jerry Springer seem tame and normal.
It’s no holds barred rough, raw, crude, brutal, and violent with crazy characters, cheating galore, a hero who gives new meaning and an A+ distinction to uber A+lpha and A+sshat, and a heroine who makes ridiculously, repeatedly stupid choices. I wanted to smack them both silly several times. (view spoiler)[Deuce’s random whore banging and the way he treated Eva when she was pregnant was appallingly, unforgivably awful. And Eva’s pathological love, forgiveness, and codependency for Frankie was creepy and disturbing, not to mention the twisted, sexual mess she got herself into with Chase. (hide spoiler)] These people should be on posters for STD screening.
Yet despite all the vulgarity and wacky chaos, I was absolutely absorbed from beginning to end and exhaustively entertained. And even though the H/h drove me batty with all their insane drama, I was still captivated and rooting for their HEA. Perhaps I shouldn’t have enjoyed this so much, but surprisingly, shamelessly, I did.
