As with every other book in this series I just gobbled this up within 24 hours. I just couldn't put it down. Loved Reece and Roxy. Although there were times I wanted to smack Roxy.
I loved loved loved that we got to see the whole gang there for several scenes. Even loved seeing Jacob. Now-I wished Jacob and Roxy would of bonded more. I wanted her to tell him about Charlie and what had happened. I bet Jacob could of helped her overcome a lot of her guilt. And the cookout at Jax place when they walked in the house Avery was coming out the bathroom? she claimed that she just got over the flu and it was probably the left over symptoms. BUT I put my money on that she's pregnant. Especially since in one of the previous books Tess made a comment that she would be surprised if Avery could make it out of college without having any babies
Now in these types of books I usually don't really care for the stories where they already know each other. But this one felt different. Although I wished there was a little bit more chase. And the someone stalking Roxy? I'm surprised until she found the picture on her phone that she didn't take it more seriously. Although to her credit those things weren't really that dangerous. Just wished it was more danger to it. And we never learned why he did it. Although I knew all along who it was. Especially since she never told him her name and said he looked familiar. Although her reasoning for that made sense, although I thought it was more to it than that.
So glad we saw a lot more Nick in this. Can't wait for his and Steph's story next book. Although wished we learned what she was doing in the bar or even that town in this book. And oh their story should be fun. ...more

The beginning of the series started off awesome and then slowly went downhill from there. Overall it wasn't a bad book. Although I do have to wonder if Richelle knows how to write a finale to a series. The Georgina series had a good end. And that was it. Dark Swan left a bunch of unanswered questions and a lot not resolved. Even though she said that maybe one day she would like to go back and write another book. But at this point it's been years since the last book. VA there were tons of loose plot holes and unanswered questions left but we knew we were getting a spin off that I thought was suppose to tie those up. Not so much, and more so the book opened a few plot lines and didn't answer them. What was the point? And overall as a series I'm pretty disappointed with it. I was under the impression that this series was suppose to be more about Jill and Sydney. But it turned into the Sydney and Adrian story. I loved both characters I really did. But together as a couple? Too love sick and cheesey for me. They aren't even the same people anymore. Really you could say as a couple they are one person. Adrian can't even go 5 minutes without Sydney. I thought we were going to see more of Jill and Lissa's relationship. In LS I got the impression that Lissa wasn't too happy with Jill being her sister. Not sure if that just because of the revelation that her dad had an affair combined with her knowing that Jill will be a target to dethrone Lissa. And I thought we would learn more about Tasha's trial. I still feel like there was more to why she framed Rose than just because she was jealous, because that would make no sense unless she was completely psycho. Not to mention it would really affect Christian and from there have an affect on his relationship with Lissa.
Now what's wrong in this series: 1. What's the point in bringing up researching Spirit? We still have learned nothing about it. That should of been a big part of this series and made some headway. Not to mention the whole sub plot was dropped in flavor of Sydney and Adrian. And being restored with Spirit and the whole pregnancy thing? Are you kidding me? That was completely pointless. It went no where with that expect to give up hope that one day Dimitri and Rose could have a baby and to give a baby to Sydney and Adrian to raise. Which I saw coming. Which brings me to:
2. Olive ran to protect the baby. Yet knowing she was going to die she tells Adrian to tell Neil the truth and that she knows he will raise and protect the baby. Sydney and Adrian are on board with this. I'm on Neil's side. He should not raise that baby and was right to run from them. Like Olive he was protecting the baby. One day someone would connect the dots.
3. Rose and a flashy big engagement ring? I don't see her doing that. Not to mention she doesn't like flashy jewelry because of what happened in BP. Not to mention she wouldn't wear it during guardian duties, it would be unsafe.
4. Why weren't there more Lissa and Christian in this? Wasn't this suppose to bring the 2 series together?
5. The dual POV. I hate them I hate them I hate them. Makes no freaking sense especially when both of them are in the same place. And the epilogue in Adrian's PoV? Nope. Should of been Sydney's. Not to mention like number 4 why wasn't Lissa and Christian there?
6. The biggest shocker. This is what blew my mind the most. I couldn't even process it when I read it. Dimitri and Adrian cousins? Really? WTF And what was the point of that? That was pretty much pointless. And to have Adrian's uncle there had no point but to reveal that is who Dimitri's father is. And really why? We didn't need to know who he was. And going back to the point above with Olive. She didn't need to run into the woods because he was in the room and she was about to give birth. You could tell there was something special about the baby, but unless you can see Spirit you wouldn't know what. Especially since he's a drunk. Come on now.
7. Where was Abe? Come on. Abe could of found Jill or been very useful finding her. If not he would of been very useful on their adventure.
8. Like I said somewhere above I was under the impression the series was suppose to be more about Jill. Yet Jill was pretty much toss aside and pretty much such a minor character in the series. What was the point in having that bond with Adrian? Oh yeah so he had a legit reason to go to Palm Springs. That was it.
I'm sure I could come up with all kinds of more reasons. ...more
It started off ok. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it at first. The writing I thought was juvenile. Felt like things happened really fast with littIt started off ok. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it at first. The writing I thought was juvenile. Felt like things happened really fast with little details.
The book lost me about halfway when Kasey and Trent actually get together. Felt like it was way too fast. The rest of it I skimmed.
I loved loved loved Storm and Kacey and Storm's friendship. And that was about it.
First off without Kacey being Livie's legal guardian it would of been difficult for both of them to stay in Miami. All her aunt had to do was call the cops, and with both of them using their real names, especially Livie with school it would of been so easy to track them down.
Then we have Kasey's trouble with sex alcohol and drugs. Especially still kind of using sex. I get that. It's realistic it can happen. BUT Kasey thinks every single guy wants to sleep with her. Get over yourself.
And then we have Trent. For someone who have her issues and history and never healing properly or attempting to she got over her hand touching with him real fast. Not realistic and would never happen. Not to mention they happened very fast. It was almost like she fell in love with him in 5 minutes. And him coming to her work every night just to watch her? Creepy. And stalker much? Even when they got together he still came to her work. And she would be devastated when he wouldn't show. This is your job. I understand that type is more fun and less jobish than others but still. He lives next door. You do not need to see him 24/7.
I did like Storm and Dan. But once again everything happened so fast. After what a few dates they are already arguing over her job?
And then we have the big twist. Which I saw coming. I knew exactly what Trent's secret was. And again with the stalking. He's a creep. I don't care how hot he is and how amazing the organisms are that he gives you. You fell in love with Trent. Ok however much I roll my eyes at it, whatever. But once she found out Trent's secret. Yeah that would of made me fall right back out of love. Forgive him like she eventually did, yes. But I would never be able to find myself able to love him.
Also there was an inconsistency. Maybe a small editing mistake. Kasey is 20 and at one point they had a party for her 21st birthday. It never said that if it was actually her birthday just that it was coming up. It's been 4 years since the accident. Yet at the end of the book it says she was 15 when it happened. Doesn't add up.
Another book I can roll my eyes at and add to my disappointment in the NA genre. ...more
I liked this book. I didn't love it or thought it was amazing but I didn't hate it either. I did thought it was longer than it needed to be Rating 3.5
I liked this book. I didn't love it or thought it was amazing but I didn't hate it either. I did thought it was longer than it needed to be. A lot of the middle of it could of been cut out. But I did appreciate we got to see them actually fall in love without even realizing it.
I ended up loving Drew. I didn't think I would. And I love the approach that was taken. Not often does the seemingly douchebag guy who hits on every girl turn out to be the good guy and becomes bff. I loved the fact that Josh and Drew were already bff, as odd as their friendship is.
I could tell right away Nastya had issues, serious issues. But I didn't see the no talking thing until it was revealed. Although I would thought it was the trauma she suffered and not by choice. And it didn't take me long to realized that it wasn't her real name either. It was the last name I realized first after she mentions her parents name. And it was a while after that I pieced that her first name probably wasn't her real name. Thought maybe it was a stage name or something. And until she went home I didn't realized how close home and her aunts were.
It was a good book and story. Heart wrenching. I do wished we learned more about the boy. I wanted her to be able to really confront him and not through a letter to the courts. Maybe an explanation why she chose to talk to Josh and Drew when she won't even say a word to her family. By the time she talked to Drew I understood that. But talking to Josh seemed very random. Also there was no explanation to how her brother knew about the notebooks. ...more
I've had a few of Colleen Hoover's books on my tbr list for a while. But this is a new one. I decided to give it a go this morning. And about 5ish houI've had a few of Colleen Hoover's books on my tbr list for a while. But this is a new one. I decided to give it a go this morning. And about 5ish hours later I was done. It's been a while since I've read a book that fast. But I couldn't put this down.
My only complaint about the book is how Miles chapters are written. Now I've read a book that's written like that, but it was just weird in this one and didn't go with the book. It made me not like past Miles as much. Well...I mean it's not how I would see a man especially a 18 year old thinking. And honestly it's why I don't care for the male pov in a lot of YA or even NA. I did enjoy how most of his POV until the end was the past.
Now Miles...oh Miles. He just broke my heart. I can't imagine going on for 6 years with all that pain built up. I understood him completely and why he's like he was. Rachel just left and he never got closure. He needed that and needed to know it wasn't his fault and that it's ok to be happy and to love again. Seeing Rachel was exactly what he needed. Rachel even said that she thought about seeing him but wouldn't know what to say and how it was awkward at first. But she should of went and saw him at least a few years ago. Even if he was able to move on she should of known that she needed to see him and tell him that it wasn't his fault and she forgives him.
I know a lot of the complaint is that Tate was just a doormat and let Miles treat her like crap. She even admitted it, but said she couldn't walk away and would take whatever she got. She was drawn to him, and ultimately fell in love. I've been in a situation similiar, kind of. I knew this guy wasn't the one girlfriend type. I knew he would break my heart. But I couldn't help myself. This is the same way. Until the end she couldn't walk away no matter how much he broke her heart. Even though he said from the beginning and kept saying over and over and closed himself off, he couldn't love. He wouldn't let himself. But the little signs of hope, she held on. I don't blame her.
The story was different than i thought it would be. But I loved it none the less. ...more

I wasn't sure about the duel POV, since I'm not a big fan of it. But it worked in this case. There were some cheesey aspects in the story, but besides that I really got into the book.

I seriously can't get enough of Charles. And the cover is just gorgeous. I love the model for Charles.
Wish we saw a little bit more of Bran, but loveI seriously can't get enough of Charles. And the cover is just gorgeous. I love the model for Charles.
Wish we saw a little bit more of Bran, but loved that we saw Leslie again.
Loved the new characters we saw. I was surprised at Maggie. Honestly I really didn't care for her. More interesting that her and Charles were in love at one point, but she was afraid of the wolf. Even though you could tell she loves her husband, you could tell she was still much in love with Charles. Which I find weird. Granted Charles is older than her but he still looks young where she's an old lady. It's just creepy. You could tell Charles still cared for her.
There's a lot about horses in the book. Even though I don't know anything about horses, I really enjoyed it. It actually made me want to know more about horses.
Won't spoil too much. But loved how Charles at the end changed his mind about what Anna have been wanting. Although I wished he would agree to trying to do it surrogate. Although any child he raise would be his and he wouldn't love him/her any less, but I would love to see them have a child of their own...more

Although I wish we saw more of the relationship growing between Charles and Anna than of the plot, but I guess that would make it more romance than UF. I think I def prefer the Mercy books, but these are def one of my favorites too. They suck me in and I could not put the book down until I finished it.
I would have to say I'm officially in love with Charles. Kind of disappointed that there will only be 4 in the series. I'm going to try to pace myself and wait a while to read the next book. ...more

I usually don'I completely loved the book, and now kicking myself for not reading it sooner. It's not the Mercy books but they have their own appeal. I usually don't care for books where the couple get together early on and especially at the beginning, but it just works for this series. I'm beyond fascinated by Charles. And I really enjoyed Anna.
And I really loved that we saw more of Bran. I've been fascinated by him since the Mercy books. He's probably one of my favorite characters in the Mercy world. Although we never really saw Leah in the Mercy books, from what is told I didn't like her. Always wondered why he was mated to her, when it seemed like he didn't really care for her, and how she's such a bitch towards everyone especially those who Bran loves. The little bit the book told makes more sense.
I can see I'm going to have the same problem with this series as with Mercy. I'm going to finish reading these in no time and won't be able to stop myself. ...more
