This book is a fast-paced road to la-la land!
I like the attitude of both characters-not just about having a baby, but with their outlook in life. It was fun reading about how both of them squirm when the other is around. ;) Even though I already know where the story was headed, I enjoyed their interactions and light banters.
I admit, everything went too fast that at some point, I felt left behind wanting more details. Anyway, since this is a short read, I guess it was intended to be that way.
This is a love story that you will surely appreciate. Not just because of the gradual way that the main charactersA hot and yet cute kind of romance!
This is a love story that you will surely appreciate. Not just because of the gradual way that the main characters developed their relationship, but also because the other characters around them will surely entertain you.
Ryder and Brinley don't have a great history. In fact, it's really bad. After a humiliating event, they let time pass without anyone acknowledging the other. They see each other again and they still have this magnetic pull towards one another.
I like Brinley's obvious innocence in this book. It made her adorable and at the same time, quite hot. I also like Ryder's devotion to her.
Like I said, I also love the people around the main characters. They give more spice to the book. Mason, Brinley's best friend is kind of commendable because he sticks with her no matter what. Fallon, the unlikely ally that Brinley found is also very nice to read about. Their group of friends is indeed a nice group. :)
The complication between them may run deep, but the attraction remains. When things got out of hand, it was a little frustrating to read about. I could just feel the anger of Brinley. I would be so disappointed if it were to happen to me. Gosh! When they finally patched things up, all was well in paradise!
I love the way it ended. I look forward to the next books about the other characters. I'm sure it'll be great. :) ...more
I read this book thinking that oh, it's going to be about this hot, hard-ass and cocky as hell guy. However, what I got insteaLooks can be deceiving.
I read this book thinking that oh, it's going to be about this hot, hard-ass and cocky as hell guy. However, what I got instead is a guy who's sweet, loves deeply and last but definitely not the least, one who isn't afraid to grovel (I think).
So yeah, I did not get what I expected.
Frankly, I'm disappointed....
Haha! Gosh! This was a very nice change of pace for me. One minute, I was thinking.. Ah I know exactly what's going to happen later... Then I get surprised with the way Luke acts. It's fun! I was really entertained the whole time I was reading this.
I also have mad respect for Allie. When she thought Luke did her wrong, she held on. She held onto her pride and she held on well. I know things were really unclear for them, but I'm glad that she didn't just take him back in a snap.
The conflict really isn't that complicated. I wanted more details on it, but it wasn't explored too much. Anyway, all's well that ends well. :)
I know my review sounds more like gushing right now rather than a proper review, but what the heck. This book deserves gushing. :)
This book was really adorable. I love how both characters' POVs showed changes in the end. The writing was also a breath of fresh air to me. It'sCute.
This book was really adorable. I love how both characters' POVs showed changes in the end. The writing was also a breath of fresh air to me. It's quirky, fun and really cute. Their exchanges are also something you should look forward to. They can really banter. ;)
I love how the conflict evolved into something that is much smaller than the lesson that the characters should learn in their life. I like how it seems like everything they do here lead to some understanding of their own feelings.
Even though I already know where the story was going, it still felt like a nice movie unfolding.
If you like light romances coupled with adorable encounters and a good deal of life lessons, then this one is definitely for you. :) ...more
Rake indeed is amazing! He's my favorite among all of them! He's funny, he's a real caveman and he's hot!

Rake indeed is amazing! He's my favorite among all of them! He's funny, he's a real caveman and he's hot!
Rake and Bailey's story is one of those that will make you want for things to move faster!
Not that I'm being impatient or anything...
It's just that I know they truly deserved each other! After all of their misery and the things that they endured apart.. It was just time!
When it finally happened! Gosh! It was indeed awesome. I love how they were able to have all things out in the open. I love how they were able to accept it and get past it.
The people around them.. Where to begin??!! They were all so funny!
Tracker is always a ray of sunshine while Faye is always a ball of energy and laughter! :D The other men, with all of their testosterone are oh so hot.. and funny at the same time.
I love how this book ended mainly because of that epilogue. It showed great potential for a spin off!!! Please tell me that there will be a spin off!!!
All in all, this was a fun book with lots and lots of errr.. hot moments! Coupled with a few action scenes and a good number of smart mouths.. If you want a book to make you feel good today, then this one really is for you!...more
COAST is one of those books that I have been lookingReviewing this book is close to impossible.
I'll try hard to put words into this..
Okay here goes..
COAST is one of those books that I have been looking forward to since the day book 1 came out. I don't know about you, but when I wait for a book... As I anxiously wait for it, my expectations grow.
This book does not disappoint. Even though my expectations of it were kinda sky high, it managed to surpass everything and I love Jay McLean for that.
I always say that I love a good book with life lessons. Real life nowadays is so keen on telling us what we should and should not do. Books though, they make us feel. Books make us see sense and books give examples of awesome life lessons lived by characters.. and through them, you live it too as a reader. I love that about Coast. Becca and Josh's story will make sure that you get some pointers about living your life as best you could. It teaches you to cherish little things and it teaches you that true happiness bears responsibilities.
You cannot be truly happy if you haven't really experienced sadness and unfortunately, our two main characters had to go through so many things too before they reached their happily-ever-after. That's what I want y'all to read too.
How did they manage that?
I find that I feel proud because I read all about their hardships.
I also feel proud of their achievements. It's amazing to read about. :)
If there's one couple that I'd like to be friends with in real life, at the moment, that would be Becca and Josh. I want to congratulate them for a job well done in life and I want to just squeeze the cuteness out of little Tommy!!!
My review doesn't really give justice to this book.
I guess all I wanna say now is..
YOU HAVE GOT TO READ THIS BOOK (and the first one, of course)!!!
Bigots could forever be bigots, but for every single bigot, there's probably aSo much love in just one book.
This is how real life is supposed to be.
Bigots could forever be bigots, but for every single bigot, there's probably a hundred good-hearted ones and that's where you gain hope for everyone.
I failed to review the first book right away because I promise you, I couldn't put to words the love that I felt for it. I'm creating this review because finally, I think I could be coherent enough. :)
I did not expect this pairing to throw me off my comfort zone and just feel so damn good on the inside. I can count in my fingers the number of MM romances that I've read and I can assure you, Drew and Trent's pairing is right at the top of my list.
The things that they went through.. I see those things in real life. They get bullied, they get grief because of what they are. It's painful to hear about. Now I can tell you truthfully that even in fiction, it's gutting to read about. I swear. I was enraged probably because I know that this kind of bullying happens in real life. :(
However, I was also VERY VERY VERY HAPPY because even in fiction.. There are good people. As a reader, I appreciate the fact that it was emphasized that Trent and Drew got a lot of support. There were SOME who were not so understanding, but MAJORITY of the people around them are good people.
I guess that's all I can ask for in this book and in real life. I, as a person and as a reader, want for people like Drew and Trent to not feel alone and to be accepted.
This book made me remember why I read books so much.
I read because it gives me hope. :)
I hope this book makes you feel the same way too. :)
P.S. This book is damn hot. It's also filled with careful plotting and a smooth execution! ...more
Fascinating take on creatures that we all love/hate... Vampires.
This book was a mystery to me. I was given just a few details before I reviewed it. IFascinating take on creatures that we all love/hate... Vampires.
This book was a mystery to me. I was given just a few details before I reviewed it. I thought it was a horror book of course because of some of the description. However, even if this book contained a few scary moments, it also had me interested in the history and relationship of the characters. I could definitely say that there's a hint of drama here and there.
What strikes me as unique in this book is the way Antonio Molinari treated vampires. The book's timeline is indeed very long because as we all know, vampires can live forever and yet, he (Antonio) kept his faith alive along with the belief that they can be saved. His character also has an amazing amount of strength. To endure many things for such a long time is quite outstanding.
The little girl though... How to describe her... Hmmm... Let's just say that while I liked her character, I had many, many doubts. She's adorable, I give you that. However, there instances wherein I thought.. Ah, this would be her turning point. This is one of the things that you gotta look forward to. Will she or will she not be a creature of darkness?
I love following the events that span years and years. Like I said, the history part intrigued me. I've been reading for a long time and I know that it's always good when the author pushes you to research on things. It's a show of great interest. This book made me research even the most insignificant things (clothes, shoes, cars of a certain era) It was quite fun really. :)
The ending had me satisfied. I can't think of a better way to end this book.
I guess what I appreciate the most in this book is that it sticks to the belief that vampires are not just some teen-made-fantasy creatures. They're more complex and they're not just a thing of the night. They're so much more, so if you're tired of vampire-books-made-for-teens romances, then this one is for you. ...more
It's amazing how people come together by chance. Nothing forDEKE. JUSTICE.
JUSTICE AND DEKE.
A chance meeting.
And many, many things to be thankful for.
It's amazing how people come together by chance. Nothing forced, nothing premeditated. Just chance. You just gotta thank all your lucky stars for it. That's what happened to these two. It might not have been under the best circumstances, but that chance gave way to a whole new world for the both of them.
Now who wouldn't be thankful for the BOUNTY that is meeting your "FOREVER".
I've known Deke since he was introduced in the series a couple of books ago. He's an admirable man full of loyalty and friendship. He's this larger-than-life alpha guy with a big heart. However, underneath all that, there's this tiny insecurity that a reader like me wants to just break down.
Justice on the other hand... is a force of nature. She breezes all the way from one place to another. She's a star who's trying to go under the radar. I love how unpredictable her character is. She surprises me in the best way. I love just how she loves Deke and I love how she breaks down his walls. It's amazing to read about. :)
Now about the story...
(I'll try really, really hard not to give out spoilers)
Like I said, they meet by chance.
And then they lose touch. :(
However, just like with any love stories, there's always hope!
They get to see each other again... but in a very, very, VERY different scenario.
Personally, I love how these two reunite. It shows that in a way, grief can also bring people together. Grief can bridge gaps and grief brings out the best (or worst) in people. Even though their statuses seems oceans-apart, they make the relationship work spectacularly. The people around them are also very protective and supportive at the same time. It's just so heartfelt to read about.
The conflicts here are pretty intense in my humble opinion. I cried five times. FIVE. FRIKKIN. TIMES. Family will always be a big matter to me, so it's hard when I read about them not getting along. With the grief that Justice feels and the internal conflict of her family... I thought it would be too much for her o bear... But no. She soldiers on. She believes the best in people and that's another beautiful thing about her character. And while she's doing that, Deke is there to combat some of her demons. She broke down HIS walls, but Deke continues to give a wall of defense for Justice so that nothing bad would touch her. He's good at that, you know? Building things. Repairing what needs to be repaired. It's symbolic and also another awesome thing in this book.
Just how lucky can a girl be when she finds a man who can build and repair not only her house, but also her soul?
That really is what this is all about. :)
Expect to be blown away by a story that will surely make you feel thankful for everything. :) Read it. It's worth it!

Imagine having cows as antagonists.
Oh gosh. It was so weird, but it was soooo creepy at the same time. What makes it more scary is that it felt as if it could really be true. One day, a delusional scientist will make bizarre and deadly creatures, I'm telling you!
This book also shows that justice shall be served! That dog sure is my hero!! Read it so that you'll know what I'm talking about. Heh.
I admit, the start of this book was a bit of a drag to me. It was bland and I wanted to go to the action parts right away. As it turns out, it was a big build up. The ending of this book is probably one of the loudest resounding boom in my fictional world.
If you like books with really good plots, creepy creatures with gore on the side... Then this one's for you!...more

This played like a chick flick in my head.
You know that cute fuzzy feeling you get when the main character first shows up in the movie? I kinda felt that here when they first met each other (mc's). After that, it was all "woosh" to love land. I must admit, there were many predictable moments, but the way each character handled situations were nice.
It all wrapped up well in the end. If you're in for some light reading and would like to have a novel play like a movie in your head, then I recommend this to you. :) ...more

Kennedy and Brent are almost alike in character. They're both strong headed, great talker and both are gorgeous. They'd make amazing babies, just saying! Just like what Brent said in the book, I think he was just waiting for Kennedy to come back and give him his heart again. Kennedy on the other hand, had issues that needed to be aired out. She's soooo stone cold at first that I must admit, I didn't like her much at the start. She gets better though, once she lets the past go and trusts Brent.
I love the fact that Kennedy and Brent had history. I love how they reminisced and hashed out everything before and while being together. I also love how well they could separate their relationship from the case, though I'm pretty sure that their liaison was illegal at that time.
I'm happy for Brent's happy ending. It was well deserved. :) ...more
