Its dark, suspenseful, sexy and confusing asI don’t think I reviewed The Girl in 6e most likely because I just couldn’t figure out how to review it. Its dark, suspenseful, sexy and confusing as all hell. There’s a lot that cant be said without giving away too much.
Torre turned it up for Do Not Disturb. Everything was a bit more intense. A lot less confusing and basically just fucking brilliant.
Dee and Jeremy have taken their relationship a step further. He doesn’t know what happened after she took his truck. And for the time being he’s okay with what she does for a living which is good because for the time being it doesn’t look like she is interested in changing professions.
While working she encounters a client Freebird71 later to be known as Marcus. He’s a fucking psycho recently released from prison after being convicted for sex crimes. He sets off many red flags. So she sent her hacker and friend Mike on him. Blocking and him and essentially blacklisting him clearly this will not go over well with Marcus.
The story is captivating. Seriously I had a difficult time putting it down. Okay, I’m lying I had to put it down many times to absorb everything that was going on only to pick it back up a few seconds later. There were so many times the suspense had me wanting to hide under my covers. It was intense my heart raced, my mouth got dry and I just needed to hide. What can I say I have issues.
So heres the thing. I was a little disappointed in the ending. After reading the authors note, I was glad to know that the ending I would’ve preferred was what was originally planned. I sort of found that comforting....more
I fucking LOVED Night Owl. Matt is such a bastard and he owned me from the jump. So when I hit the end of Night Owl and I was reading utter nonsense iI fucking LOVED Night Owl. Matt is such a bastard and he owned me from the jump. So when I hit the end of Night Owl and I was reading utter nonsense if you’ve read it then you know exactly what I’m talking about its a complete wtf moment. I couldn’t wait to get a hold of Last Light which admittedly I already had in my kindle but for reasons unknown to me I cannot binge read a series, its frustrating as all hell. So when I was finally able to read it shoot I was excited. Last Light really just explains that last part of Night Owl.
Matt Sky faked his death, he just wanted peace. He wanted to have his anonymity back. And since he couldn’t get Hannah to run away the best he could do was fake his death. Which is basically a shit thing to do. Because while he’s holed up in a cabin Hannah is supposed to be the mourning girlfriend, it really doesn’t sit well with her.
Hannah is struggling to “mourn”, and avoid Matt’s brother Seth as his sexual advances are quite bothersome. I feel like Hannah stayed the same which is incredibly interesting to me with the influence of Matt you would think she would be greatly affected. You could be saying, but Autumn she went along with this death stuff. And to you I say kinda not really.
I was kinda just let down by Matt and I know exactly how ridiculous I’m about to sound. What I love about Matt is he is suchhhhhhhhh a bastard ass douche ball and he just embraces it. And while I don’t think Hannah has been influenced by Matt I can see Matt is greatly influenced by Hannah. I kept waiting for Matt to do some low down dirty shit and he just didn’t. Shes bringing out the best in him. Shes doing what everyone woman wants to do to a man. Shes fixing him.. See ridiculous.
Last Light obviously progressed Matt and Hannah as a couple but as a reader I wondered if this was just a filler book. I felt setup for things that just didn’t happen. Don’t get me wrong I love this book I just wanted more. Perhaps I was spoiled in Night Owl. Of course, I can’t wait to get to After Dark which is locked and loaded into my kindle and thankfully it’s already been sufficient time for my mind to allow me to read After Dark. I love when things work out!...more
Im coming out of my New Adult phase, for many reasons really. But have no fear NA ill be back. Especially when there are gems like Breathe Into Me. WhIm coming out of my New Adult phase, for many reasons really. But have no fear NA ill be back. Especially when there are gems like Breathe Into Me. While there were a few NA cliches Fawkes stayed away from my deal breaker, If you new to my brand of crazy ill quickly explain my deal breaker. OMG ITS SO BIG HOW IS GOING TO FIT! Hes as big as an animal! Typing those words made me semi violent. So I considered it a win if the deal breaker doesnt appear. Beautiful Lacey really doesnt have a lot going for her besides looks, dont get me wrong shes not stupid by any means. Her boyfriend is abusive, she lives with her crazy Grandmother, Mother, and brother in a trailer park. She has 2 dead end jobs and no friends. Not to mention a bad reputation thanks to the dumbasses in her small town. But things start to change for her after a night with her one so called friend. She runs into an old friend from school and his HOT friend, Everett. And is ALMOST forced to give one of her boyfriends friends a blowjob. Everett protects her from her boyfriend and a FRIENDSHIP develops of course they are attracted to each other but they take things slow. In fact when the word girlfriend is mentioned Lacy is taken aback. He quickly becomes the one she feels safe with and opens up to him about various things in her life. I was happy for Lacy! She found a friend, their attraction wasnt in the forefront of every conversation they had. Everett helped her in so many ways. He helped her believe in herself and really thats just -sigh-. Things for Lacy dont get better right away. Its definitely a roller coaster ride. She has employment issues, a useless mother and that crazy grandmother. While there is a vast amount of characters in Breath Into Me, I have to say my favorite hands down was the bartender Cherise. She was a beacon of awesome for me. I basically devoured this book in a matter of a few short hours. I just couldnt put it down, okay I did put it down for like 30 LONG minutes my hands itched to hold my kindle tight. Fawkes totally has a new fan girl in me! Oh and how can I forget to imagine how much I LOVE Breathe Into Me is a standalone! YES!!! I miss these mythical creatures!...more

I was eager to get back to find out what the heck was going on I tried to figure it out.. BTW I was Soo WRONG! I really did try though I had one idea.. the wrong one.. And believe me it was a struggle I was completely perplexed! I swear ill never be a writer! Thats okay I never really wanted to be one.. I wanted to be a librarian..
The story was definitely a great one mysterious and totally on the edge of your seat.. The characters felt real and likeable.. Okay well Anat was slightly annoying to me.. But I can understand where she is coming from.. I really liked Sophie myself the girl has some spunk!...more
Captivating from the very first paragraph. Chantress grabbed my attention and stubbornly refused to let go. Lucy has been shipwrecked on an island witCaptivating from the very first paragraph. Chantress grabbed my attention and stubbornly refused to let go. Lucy has been shipwrecked on an island with her guardian for 7 years. She lost he mother on that journey (or so she was told). Her guardian Norrie has warned her to never sing. EVER.
But on Allhallow's Eve a song pulls at her and after discovering a letter from her mother she breaks the rule and immediately regrets it. Magically teleported to London into the home of Lord Scargrove, she over hears his desire to find any Chantress. Lucy comes to realize he is describing her. She is able to esxape into a cart and lucky for her when she is discovered she is not turned in, but asked to help over throw Scargrove and his evil shadowgrims.
Through a series of events Lucy is connected with a Chantress who not only lost her magic to the shadowgrims but is also her godmother. She teaches Lucy how to preform magic properly and painstakingly. Because Lucy is drawn to wild magic which is quite dangerous. Her one relief from these rigorous sessions is visiting and Nat one of her saviors. Though their relationship is rocky she cant help but feel a small connection to him.
A temedous amount of work and creativity was put into this story and it shows! The characters are rather enjoyable I cant say that I’ve read a heroine like Lucy so that was pretty cool. And the captivating story reads rather quickly. ...more

Her mother whom she hasnt seen since she was a baby has passed away leaving Mary her sex shoMary is just a 24 year old virgin going to school in CA.. Her mother whom she hasnt seen since she was a baby has passed away leaving Mary her sex shop.. bar and house in FL.. Obviously this is a shock to her Mary kinda takes in all in strides moves to FL and meets her tenant John and her business partner Max.. both amazingly hot guys.. I kinda like Max's style hes irish..a playboy and unapologetic about it.. I like that what can I say I like when people know who they are and arent afraid or ashamed by it.. John seems to be the strong silent type a veteran so yeah im on board for him too..
Within mintues of meeting Max is already kissing and fondling her.. I mean this could go either way you could totally be put off or it could just roll off you.. for me I wasnt disturbed by this or any of the fast ways Mary developed when she set foot in FL..
The Fetish Box Marys inherited store theres a cast of funny and interesting characters.. John offers to teach Mary the ropes of the sex shop and well the deed itself.. Mary lets put this lady like COMPLETELY FREAKING JUMPS AT THE OPPORTUNITY..
I Really enjoyed the different POVs to the story.. was I completely happy about the cliffhanger ending.. uhh no.. but I get it.. its a novella would I love them to be all wrapped up in a book.. YES!

Epic.. really thats all you need to know.. That should be your motivation to go out and get this book.. Splintered is the debut novel from A.G. HowardEpic.. really thats all you need to know.. That should be your motivation to go out and get this book.. Splintered is the debut novel from A.G. Howard.. And she knocked it out of the park.. In all honesty I have yet to read Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland .. I vaguely remember the disney movie and actually caught of glimpse of Tim Burton's one both fronts ive been inspired to watch or rewatch.. As of late ive felt a pull to Wonderland.. So when I saw this book the cover automatically got me.. The synopsis sealed the deal..
In this not completely dark 1 part Tim Burton 1 part CGI Dr. Seuss (at least in my head) so lets go with mediumly whimsical.. Completely magical.. Splintered introduces us to Alyssa Gardner great great okay many greats granddaughter Of Alice Liddell Carroll's inspiration for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.. Alyssa 's family is cursed well the women are and they have been cursed since Alice.. Currently Alyssa's mother Allison is in an asylum.. She believes she can talk to bugs, and foliage.. She only eats from teacups, yeah she has a few quirks.. When her father agreees to let the des begin shock treatments on Allison Alyssa gets desperate.. She also begins to question the existence of Wonderland she comes across many clues that encourage her to believe in Wonderland..
Alyssa has kept the truth about her mom and herself from EVERYONE! Obviously her father knows about her mother but he doesnt know about her.. Her best friends and neighbors Jeb and Jenara are completely clueless.. Alyssa has been in love with Jeb since like forever! Jeb happens to walk in on Alyssa in the exact moment that she walks into wonderland and so it happens that he enters Wonderland along with her.. They are both completely blown away by all of this.. Alyssa was obviously prepared for what she was about to encounter.. Jeb not so much however he took it in stride.. While in Wonderland memories of Alyssa's past return along with a boy who was her friend before her mother was commited.. Now he is older handsome and seemingly willing to help her.. Morpheus is not what he seems men usually arent.. LOL sorry I couldnt resist! Morpheus is less than trustworthy but looking around Wonderland who else can she trust.
Howard took me on a journey I didnt know existed to a land of fear and love.. The twists and turns of Wonderland both thrilled and terrified me.. Splintered lingered with me for longer than most other books Ive read.. I envy Howard more than im willing to admit. Get the book for the cover if you must but once youve read Splintered youll totally believe the cover didnt do it justice..
