Lily St. Germain is my heroine! Her epiloque isn´t some fluffy HEA tale. Hell no! Zero Hour is the perfect gritty and raw storyline from start to finish. Dark, twisted, disturbing and painful ending with the bittersweet feeling of conclusion. I loved it!
Overall the Gypsy series is dark, sexy, and full of action. It has so many twists and turns and it will totally keep you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommended!...more

"We´re all just people who sometimes do bad things. I guess that´s true in a way. No one is exclusively bad, nor is anyone exclusively good. Some are just forced to work harder at suppressing the bad."
It Ends With Us is a book about life, love and domestic violence. This book pushes limits, makes you question yourself and what decisions you would make if you were any of these characters. You´ll question EVERYTHING you think about yourself and your morals. This was a tough read in so many ways for me. While reading you realize how easily black and white can turn to grey, and how many different shades of grey there are. I don't want to tell you much about this book because I feel that this is a journey that everyone should read and experience for themselves. The summary does not begin to explain what you will go through reading this, but it is worth every second.
"It´s easy when we´re on the outside to believe that we would walk away without a second thought if a person mistreated us. It´s easy to say we couldn´t continue to love someone who mistreats us when we aren´t the ones feeling the love of that person. When you experience it firsthand, it isn´t so easy to hate the person who mistreats you when most of the time they´re your godsend."
Authors Note is most valuable part of this book, so please everyone, don´t skip it. Colleen Hoover deserves a standing ovation for courage at writing such a personal and heartbreaking story.
"In the future...if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again...fall in love with me. (...) You´re still my favorite person, Lily. Always will be."
Dear Colleen, I admire you so much. You not only inspire me as a writer, but I think that your words have made me a better person. Thanks for making me laugh, cry, sigh in recognition, and grieve in empathy with your characters. Thank you for being you, and for writing about it. You´re still one of my favorite writers, Colleen. Always will be.

And my girl, ups...dude Dani is definition of girl-power! She's cocky,reckless, unpredictable and hyperactive, but in the same time she's so wise, loyal and dependable. She is the Shit and I loved reading from her POV. Btw, what's all that fuss about Ryodan? I don't get it. I even don't like him. Dancer is the best guy here!

"I´m convinced that hell has an intercom system and the buzz of my alarm clock is played at full volume on repeat against the screams of all the lost souls."
I have mixed feelings about the current novella trend in fiction. Shorter works featuring secondary characters from a successful full-length book or covering a discrete span of time before/after the action. Problem is that the novella is a specific prose form that isn't always easy to carry off. Longer than a short story, shorter than a novel,it requires careful plotting to get the pacing right. But you don´t have to worry about that things while reading Colleen´s novellas. They are perfect.
Maybe Not tell us a story about side characters of Maybe Someday, Warren and Bridgette who are everything but not ordinary. They are odd, goofy, silly, evil, mean...The author developed this characters in such a way that you must loved them. Colleen Hoover has such a brilliant writing style and I highly recommend all her books!
Without giving too much away, as I do not appreciate those who give reviews and spoil the storyline, I will say this novella is not just about Warren's story. It´s quite funny and enjoyable read for fans of a well-written story, well-crafted characters who make you warm in your belly and laugh out loud.
This is one that is on the MUST read shelf for anyone who wants to giggle, snort, and grin the silliest of grins for a long time after finishing the book. ...more

I waited so long to read this book and I have to admit that it was worth every minute of waiting. When I saw the cover first time, I thought it would be just another romantic happy ending. Boy, I was wrong...
Imagine modern Romeo and Juliet. Imagine what would happen if Romeo and Juliet were set in 1950s in America. Than put Juliet in Psych ward and see what will happen...
I can´t summarize the amazing experience I have had while reading this book. This series is one of my all-time favorites!
This time I don´t won´t to write long review with many reasons why you should read this book/series. Please my friends, trust me on this one and just read it.

She drove me crazy and it took wLila has poor self-esteem and she's having a hard time coping with her issues: she´s crazy, angry, whiny and annoying. She drove me crazy and it took way too long to get any sexy-action-time. My ex-favorite-dirty-talker, Nathan, became boring and romantic and he has guilt issues of his own. Over and over and over and over again... Bla-bla-bla... Yadda-yadda-yadda...
All in all, I devoured the first book because of all the dirty talking and their explosive sexual relationship. I expected so much more from this book, but...this was something different. Where went my alpha male that I fell for in the first book? Where is their connection and passion? All that sexual chemistry? This whole book looks like some kind of therapy session and don´t take me wrong, but that is not my cup of tea. I'm not hating or anything, I'm actually sad because this wasn't what I expected.
I hope that third book, Reciprocity, will be better.

This is truly an EPIC love and war story with unique characters that are tragic, sad, scary, annoying but most of all lovable. Some parts had me crying and some had me mad. Even though Alexander´s and Tatiana´s story might be great, it´s few hundred pages too long for my taste.

MAIN CHARACCrash into you is a wonderfully written, intense and emotional story. It´s fun, amazing, full of intriguing characters, action and romance.
MAIN CHARACTERS Isaiah is one of my favorite bad boys ever and this book is written in his POV. He's got a badass look with all those tatoos and piercings, but the kindest heart and most gentle and sensitive soul. His mother went to prison when he was very young and he's been shifted from foster home to foster home, sometimes having to deal with physical abuse. Having had a difficult childhood in the foster care system, he's developed a rough edge, the wall around him, and he lets so few people into his life, but inside he´s the sweetest boy ever...
Rachel is innocent and naive car obsessed girl. She goes in a private school, she´s a straight-A student, goody two shues, at least until she decides to drag race herself into trouble. She has some mental issues and severe panic attacks, and speed and racing are her way of coping for beeing a substitute for a dead sister her whole life. She lives in a house with four overprotective brothers (a.k.a. pains in the ass) who also expect her to be the one who will make their mother be happy again. She is kind of victim because she sacrifices her mental health to make her family happy. Unlike Beth, Rachel is likeable in an effortless sort of way.
STORYLINE And so, the story goes on...Isaiah meets Rachel at the most unlikely place to find a rich good girl: the back street car racing. They share the same passion for cars and though they are opposite in every way, they become instantly connected. Soon they have a street racing thug after them for money. In order to get these guys off Rachel's back, they have to work closely together for some time... In comparison with Ryan and Beth´s relationship, this one is drama free and so much better.
SECONDARY CHARACTERS I adored the secondary characters! Abby and Logan were a great addition. Abby was so sweet and kind and I felt so bad for her because of her situation. And Logan? You must love this sweet adrenaline junkie. I would like to read their story. Rachel's brothers and her parents dictated her entire life, so they are not one of my favorites here. We get longer and more significant glimpses at Noah and Echo, and Beth also makes a few appearances.
MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK I’ve been a huge fan of Katie McGarry since Pushing the Limits and I’ve been anxiously awaiting Isaiah’s story. While Crash Into You wasn’t my favorite of the three it was still a compelling read. Isaiah and Rachel´s relationship reminds me a lot on Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. I can’t possibly recommend this book enough!

Well, I am a little, how could I say... disappointed.

I was literally bored for the first 75% of World After. All the time I kept waiting for something to happen. Maybe It's my fault. After reading Angelfall I had extremly high expectations for this book. Raffe doesn't appear in the book at all until the last 25% of the book and do I even have to say that World After without Raffe in the picture sucks. Last 80 pages were pretty awesome: there was action, battles, Paige goes wild and Penryn and Raffe were together after all this time but...last 80 pages were not enough for 5 stars.
Despite my disappointment, this book was solid, and I´m looking forward to the next instaliment....more
