Kalli and Nate have been very good friends for years, since they were kids actually. Nate and is not one of those guys you just hook up with. he's a relationship kinda guy. Kalli is one crazy, crazy chick. She's all for the thrill and my God she's such a hornball! She was raped as a child, by her mother's boyfriend at the time. Because of that she has this thing where she feels panicked when locked in a room alone with a man. So, basically she gets some sick thrill on having sex being almost caught. It's crazy! But Kalli is a very complex character and I love Berto for it. Even though she's this wild child and crazy party animal, she's very ... good. I don't know, it's strange, I guess. We all have ways of making ourselves de-stress and feel better and partying and fucking are her way. Her mother is addicted to drugs and drinks all the time. She's the one who's always looking afer her twin baby brothers and also her mother.(Her mother was a whole other huge case.) She's just a good person, sure she has her pretty big flaws, but really Ithink it's just her wayof coping with everything. Nate is an all around great guy. From the beginning they have this huge chemistry that's so palpable. Kalli is not used to this. She's used to just fucking and being thrilled by sex and exposure and all tose wild, naughty things, but with Nate it's different. At first she's just blocking out the way she feels, because it's different and she's afaraid of acknowledging it all and worse, acting on it. Things get pretty steamy between them and Nate wants more, but she treats it like some mindless hook-up and that's when things gets sticky. I adored Nate because he was just an awesome guy and he was good andit was so cute how he got so embarrassed and mortified whenever Kalli was blunt about sex. But then really, he has his wild side as well and he'sjust the perfect guy for Kalli.(less)

AH-MAZING. It brought so many surprises. I mean can we talk about how Logan kills her [Paige's] brother? I don't think I've ever read a more heart-wrenching story. Seriously, I'd barely gotten to 50% of the book and I'd cried three times. It was so emotional and so very, very real. I love how it wasn't just this, "Oh okay, I forgive you." No. It took a process. A healing process. An acceptance proccess. For both Paige and Logan. It was emotional and so many things were sooo very unexpected. I'm trying to hold it all in and not speak of spoilers, but the feels are huge so I think I'll make a vlog later to properly express all my feels and speak uncensored. This is like a total tiny spoiler, kind of, because really I'm gonna be very vague, but... the forgiveness scene. Like open forgiveness. Beautiful. I wailed like a baby. It was so tender, so amazing and beautiful and perfect. And dear Christ, Logan isjust so incredible. It's all very sad. I wanna weep again just thinking about it all! Gah I'm gonna read this again soon. I think I have a discovered a new great author. Yes! So looking forward ro reading more of her works. - See more at: http://www.crazedbookie.com/2013/11/f...(less)

One of the things I loved the most was how pissed Grady was at Lindsay! Yes, I just loved how he just assumed that Lindsay didn't love him back when it all happened and he was just pissed and determined to make her feel unwelcome in his town. It was a very real reaction because he was hurt and confused. Many books would have the lead character be all forgiving and willing to listen quickly and whatnot and while it makes the male lead seem all swoony and perfect I loved that Grady was so not. He was real and a total man. He acted like a heartbroken man would and I loved the very real emotions I saw in them both. Lindsay was a very strong character and I loved her. She was determined and even though she made serious mistakes in her past, she tries very hard to turn her life into the direction she truly wants it to go. Lindsay and Grady together were just... explosive. They had so much chemistry and they would just argue and agh I love them. Let's talk a little bit about the secret. It is a secret. This means it wasn't this huge deal about some secret and then it turns out to be some stupid secret and you're left thinking, "This was it?" NO. It was the type of secret that leaves your mouth agape and you give this loud gasp and you're like, "OH MY GOD THIS IS NOT HAPPENING I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED." That type of secret.(less)

What a beautiful story! From the beginning it's amazing and it's so heart-wrenching. I squealed and cried and oohed and aahed incessantly! Scarlett captures a first love fabulously well and I loved how her writing just flowed everywhere, it was natural, I could lose myself and forget I was reading–I felt there. The characters were so real, so solid, the story so genuine, I felt it all just come alive and leave me wanting more! I'm so excited to have found this new author, I just know I'll love her other works if they're as awesome as this one!(less)

This book was pretty good. I wasn't very sure what to expect but Brandon really is a criminal. Not watered down, he just is. Then Claire is just so sweet, but she's witty, you know? She has spunk, so she's not like defenseless and under Brandon's paw, no. I loved their banter and their chemistry, they just fit somehow. The dynamic between them was fantastic and the story has very unexpected turn of events that at a first impression left me doubting but they just fit with them. The circumstances, the scene. Very well thought out and interesting. (less)
I loved, loved, loved, loved this book! Didn't catch that? I LOVED it. It makes all my fangirl insides jump around and do a freaking conga line! Ah, the sweet, sweet fangirl language; how beautiful it is and how awesome Nikki made it. This book is so very cool and fun and sweet. It's like the ultimate fangirl dream. (My case would be One Direction and I'm sorry Noah, but you'd be Harry; anyway I doubt Chloe would appreciate it if I tried something.) I loved how real Spaceships Around Saturn was, like I felt as though they were a real band; I felt the need to suddenly put on their music halfway through the book and then I remembered they don't exist... Thanks for that Nik :( LOL anyway! The book was great. Of course there is a lot of drama, I mean hello a famous Canadian boy band and 3 girls in one house? Recipe for disaster. Emery, who is 5, is mega obsessed with Benji, who is the lead singer, and then there's Tate who's goofy and all and just laughs at everything. We have Noah who is actually kinda goofy as well, although not as much as Tate and he's a great friend to Milo. Then of course we must have a badboy, which is Jules. Aralie, the middle sister who is 17, is a total firecracker and Jules being an ass, he just gets under her skin. All their fights? Priceless. I loved those so much, she's so explosive and so is he. Milo was incredible. He was sweet and mature and so perfect for Chloe. Chloe is the eldest and she's 18. She starts to get thess Saturnite feelings like 5 seconds after SAS arrive and she gets a whiff of Milo (sounds creepy, I know lol). Oh God I just spoke of them like reciting One Direction fun facts... moving on. Lots of drama, jokes, sneaking (wink, wink!), arguing and bonding. It's a lovely story and I'd definitely recommend it. But if you hate boy bands, this may not be the book for you, so sorry you're missing out on the greater things in life.
I AM A SATURNITE. God Nikki what have you done to me? I'm pretty sure I look as creepy as Emery with her crazy taxidermy hyena laugh and my roommate will probably be afraid of me from now on... So thanks for making me look like a weirdo! (less)

This book, okay to be honest I'm not sure if I'm capable of reviewing this book without at least some spoilers, so I'm gonna say this now: read at your own risk. I doubt that the spoilers will be major but well you never know. Anyway, this book as a start I had no freaking clue that it was paranormal. When she [Raeielle? Raielle? I don't remember how it's properly spelled, but I really don't want to go look it up!] started talking about how she could heal people and whatnot, I was like, "Woah, woah back it up! What do you mean heal?" lol. But it was really good. Lucas pissed me off a bit to be honest. I'm not a big Lucas fan, but he was okay. He was too... grrr... I want you... ignoring you.... So, nope I didn't quite fall in love with him. Even though he did redeem himself a teeny bit there at the end when he was very helpful and willing to do anything for Rae. Her powers were something that I found very cool and intriguing so I loved that. I also just loved how it all sort of just escalated and all of a sudden I didn't even know what was going on so I needed to keep reading and reading and then someone got something and someone got pissed and someone killed someone and someone flew in and then BAM! The End. And I know that you did not understand a lot of that but I refuse to spoil the ending! But it sounds good, right? Yup, it is, so go read it!(less)

Maybe I can start by bowing to Penny Reid. Yup, that's the place to start. You genius piece of fabulous writer! *crams crazy fangirl back inside, fixes hair and smiles politely* I read Penny's first book in the Knitting in the City series, Neanderthal Seeks Human. I adored that book very, very much. I'm not going to expand much, but one of the main reasons I liked it so much was because Janie was so atypically smart and so uncomfortable in the social scene. I learned many cool facts from her and I laughed at all her antics. A lot of times I didn't particularly comprehend her, but really it just made her all the more real. In this case, Elizabeth, who is Janie's best friend, is not shy or awkward. She's a bit rough around the edges and a bit of a tomboy.
Niccolò Manganiello you hot, sexy piece of fine Italian specimen. Okay, so from his first appearance I was pretty much a goner. He oozes charm like he learned before he even learned to walk. He's smooth, hot, funny and is very concerned over his niece which is simply heart-warming. Elizabeth is still very much stuck in this whole awkward phase around Nico, I just feel for the poor woman. It's like she doesn't even know how to act. She's nervous because of all the things that happened in their past, but she just can't shake away the awareness for him or the attraction. Nico is very persistent towards Elizabeth, he really likes her and he wants to be with her, but Elizabeth is just... well she's seriously muddled over everything. Elizabeth is a strong woman, but she's also very hard-headed and as much as Nico tries to tell her that she can move on from everything it's like she's stuck She isn't giving herself another chance at love. The dynamic between Nico and Elizabeth was simply explosive. They were great together, Nico was always teasing her and trying to get a rise out of her and it was fun to see Elizabeth's reactions.
Anywho... Now if I told you everything then what would be the point of you reading it, right? So, just trust me here and go read!(less)

I mean, I had some touble with the writing. I felt a little lost and since it was in 3rd person you can switch from telling what's going on with the male and then female, but I had a lot of trouble with the transitions. I was suddenly reading about Abby and then I jumped to Chris. Also, like changing from one scene to the next? It's like, no transition whatsoever, so I had quite some trouble with the writing per se. The story though was another thing. I liked it a lot. It was nice to see how Chris and Abby's relationship progressed and how they start off as just friends. Abby is really against them being more than friends and the thing with Chris is he's throwing off mixed signals and she just isn't sure what to do anymore. I loved how Abby was honest from the start about what she was and that Chris was accepting of her. And I adored the ending, absolutely sweet.(less)

Like, mega loved. Dante Walker is a hot, cocky badass and he knows it. He's a demon, a Collector, sent by the Boss Man aka Devil himself to put seals on bad seeds so their souls get sent to hell for being bad. He has a special mission, bring in Charlie. The only problem? Charlie Cooper is a fucking goody-two-shoes. She barely has any seals and this is a total challenge to Dante. He will do anything to have Charlie do bad things so he can seal her and collect her soul for Boss Man. What Dante doesn't expect is to actual start liking Charlie, and that maybe Charlie just might have more to tach him, than him her. Charlie is all around cute and innocent and happy and... dorky. I loved how Dante gets protective of Charlie even though he's trying to do his job. It's like he doesn't even know what's going on anymore. It was seriously fantastic and holy crap that ending was mindblowing! I am DYING for The Liberator.(less)
