Ellie's inner dialog and constant jealousy annoyed me. (view spoiler)[ I can't believe she was mad with Gunner because he was dancing with a girl after she practically pushed him to do it. And told him they were just friends. (hide spoiler)] And whats with the running away every time a girl gets close to Gunner? Just confront him!
I don't mind books were the characters cuss, but seriously they were cussing in every page and even the grandparents were cussing.
Jefferson and Ari were idiots and stupid, they just constantly pissed me off. When he gets the chance to be with her, he blows it. His excused for not making a move was simply stupid.
The description of the book was promising and I wanted to love this book, but that wasn't the case. It was an OK story with immature characters. (less)

The first book left us with a cliffhanger. With Tanin in the back seat of a police car. This second book picks up the story right where the first one ended.
We get a huge surprise right after Tanin was arrested. I wasn't waiting for him to give her a chance so quickly. I thought he was going to let her suffer a little bit more.
What I liked the most was to read the changes in Tarago’s character. Mostly the way he acted with Tanin. In the first book we see that in front of everyone he made fun of her.
The appearances was really important to him, because it could affect his business. In this one we see him being sweet and caring towards Tanin. In front of people and alone.
Eve you have a talent to make me suffer with the male protagonist of your stories. The first one was Diago, after that was Trojan and now with Tarago. (view spoiler)[ I thought for a moment there that he was going to die. And I was like "oh hell noooooo, don't you dare kill him too" (hide spoiler)]
Loved the story! There are so many emotions in this one. I smiled, I laughed, I giggled and I shed a few tears ... well more like a lot!!
There are some twists and surprises in this second part, so be prepare. (less)

When her racist boss wants her to have a drink with her, she is disgusted by him so she rejects him.That's when her ordeal begins.
Tarago reminds me a lot of Diago (the hero of the Gringa Series by this same author). Making fun of her, all the parties at the house. His possessiveness, his need to own her. But unlike Diago, Tarago got his money in a clean way. He is just a two face asshole who is obsessed with Tanin.
This book reminds me a lot the first series I read by Eve Rabi, Gringa. There are a lot of similarities in this book. But I don't care, I still loved it.
I definitely enjoyed it, I had a great time reading it. And I'm really looking forward to read the next book. You left me here hanging Eve!!!!

Worst book in the series. Does all the heroine have to been on the run? Because let me tell you something, that plot is getting boring. The brothers were really annoying.
The sex scenes are repetitive, the description when she meets her mates and gets aroused are basically the same as the previous books.
At this point I'm not sure I will continue with the series. (less)

Nonutopians is the first book of a series by Indie author Jennifer Jimenez. This first book is called Night of Essences of Phoenix and Serpent, starts with Vanora an engineer professor in a college in Puerto Rico. Vanora is presented in the book as a bohemian woman; she is a poet, a dancer, a writer and she starts having some visions of the past.
When the visions starts she decides to write a book to tell the world of her experiences. This visions show her the beauty of the earth and how the relationship between the human and the earth has been broken. How we have destructed the planet.
The story started a little bit slow. It had so many details and sometimes it was so descriptive. And I'm just not a huge fan of books like that. I wanted to get to the good part. And for me is started getting interesting when Shem appeared.
I loved that we get to read about other Latin people. What I mean is that usually when a Latin character that appears on a book they tends to be a Mexican. More than 90% of the book I've read that has a Latin character, that character is Mexican. I love that we get some Boricuas in this one.
Other thing was that we get so many facts of the Tainos and the culture of Puerto Rico. Don't get me wrong, I love my Island. But sometimes I just felt like I was back in school taking a history class. This probably will appeal more to people who doesn't know anything about our history, or our culture.
Overall it was a good story, and a nice start for the series. Love the symbols and the representations of the animals, specially the Phoenix.
PS: For some reason I was calling her Vanda, and then later I realize her name is Vanora. Still don't know why I got confuse with her name. (less)

Loved the epilogue, I love when authors tells us what happened to the characters in the end.(less)
