Spoil Free Review "Have you ever looked at a stranger and felt yourself going back to another time in your life? A time you just want to completely forget."
Wow! I was not expecting any kind of emotions going into Affliction. It just broke my heart learning about Sy past in his flashbacks. I did not read any detailed reviews so I was not prepared to shed some tears. For me that was the best experience of not knowing. He is standoffish in the beginning towards Holly that I did have a hard time connecting with his character. For me the flashbacks helped me understand why he does not let any one close to him, feel his pain and was able to connect with his character. He ended up being a broken, sexy dirty talker, alpha male biker hero who I just wanted to see get his HEA
This is the second book I read from River Savage and the second heroine I had a hard time connecting with in the beginning. I do not know how to really describe her but she was just a little over the top energetic for me. Thank goodness because of the plot line she did take it down a notch and was able to connect more with her.
Plot line was unpredictable. So many times I thought the author was going to go a certain direction. Thankfully to my surprise she did not as it led for a better read. This could of easily been a 5 Star read for me but after while I felt like "what more bad stuff can happen to Holly, good night give the girl a break".
Overall I ending up loving Affliction as it was emotional and unpredictable. Sy and Holly were both broken and perfect for each other. I was rooting for them to get their HEA. ...more

After watching the mini series trailer for Confess I had to bump it up on my TBR pile ASAP. Colleen Hoover is a mastermind when it comes to originality. I loved the confessions and actual paintings.
Well I did not love Confess has much I was hoping for. On the other hand I did not hate it either. What happened to her alpha male heroes I love to read about. Emory who is Auburn's best girlfriend has more balls than Owen. I understand why Owen at times did have to stand down but I really needed him on quite a few occasions do some serious ass kicking. I was actually shocked a few times he did not step in. In one scene I actually did not like him for not stepping in.
I was missing the sexual tension and couple chemistry Colleen Hoover is known for in her books. Owen and Auburn were cute and a bit awkward together. I liked it but was still not always feeling their chemistry. I loved and respected them as individuals. They are both selfless and the sacrifices they endure for their loved ones is sad and beautiful.
Confess is broken down in Two Parts. Part One was boring. I kept waiting for something major to happen and nothing did until the last chapter. Part Two was a bit better than Part One as I could not swipe my kindle fast enough but still I needed some situations to be dealt with more.
Overall Confess was not a bad read. I did feel that there was too many serious themes happening. I felt a lot of times certain scenarios were rushed and not fleshed out. I was really shocked by this because Colleen Hoover is a amazing story teller who can bring out different emotions. Confess should of been one of those books where I could laugh, cry, get angry and go all fan girl on the hero. Unfortunately the execution and emotions were not there for me.
I think this will be one of those occasions where I will like the on-screen better...more

Well this was a nice little surprise for me. Enjoyed Cynthia Eden work in the past for her PNR books. Came across a freebie of her first book Mine To Take in her Romantic Suspense series Mine. Perfect as I was in a romantic suspense mood too. For a novella I enjoyed it a lot.
Skye is more on the fragile side and it worked for me. It just made her character more real. I know if I was in her predicament I would be too. She had a stalker few months back that she just new had cause her to have a car accident. But the police do not believe her. Then when she moves home to Chicago her apartment gets broken into.
Trace is a yummy in your face alpha male. He is intense and harsh, especially with their first meeting after a long time. This also worked for me because it just made his character more real. He has not talked to her in ages and thought he finally put the past with them behind. He is still on the mystery side and feel readers will get more of his dark secrets in book 2. I know I am ready to find out....more

Enjoyable hot read with a yummy dirty talker and fun banteRating: 3 Stars - Liked It Genre: Contemporary Romance Heat: Hot - Fan Yourself Source: Bought
Enjoyable hot read with a yummy dirty talker and fun banter. I have to admit I have a little girl crush on Skyler. She is persistent when she wants something and that something is Gage. I loved her determination to get Gage to have a one night stand with her. It was refreshing to see a heroine who goes after what she wants. Love that she is one to start all the fun banter as she is spunky when trying to get her way. She is in an annoying rut sexually and wants to break free. Since Gabe is not into commitments he is the perfect guy for her to let loose.
Gage's character I adored. He is blunt and to the point. For his reasons he does not do relationships. He is a devoted brother who if anyone was in his shoes would most likely given up. Loved the boys club feel with his nightclub co-partners and friends. He might not want to get close to Skyler but his actions showed he does. It was the littlest things that got me swooning over him.
I have mixed feelings on the sex scenes. I love playful in my bedroom scenes but at times I felt it was over the top talking and I do not mean the good dirty talking. I loved his dirty talking mouth but Skyler was at times a little too much for me. I felt some parts of these scenes were a bit odd.
I am curious about Reed and his story in One Night of Scandal (After Hours #2)....more

Wow! What a dark and intense read. I was not expecting a dark read as I did not read any reviews. I went into it blind and that was the best way to go. I do not know why I even clicked on the cover as it is not appealing but I did. Next to my surprise I was curious about this couple. Of course had to read a sample and bam I was one clicking to buy. Awesome beginning love both Prologues from each character. It is one of those Prologues that is actually part of the ending. I am always a sucker for that in my reads. Author gives you just enough to wonder what is happening.
This book is not dark when it comes to the couples relationship. They are both messed up from their past. I connected with David as an individual and being in the relationship with Emma. He always has her back and stands up for her. Loved that both are possessive of each other. They are not afraid to speak their minds when it comes to each other.
I am a flash back junkie. The flash backs were perfectly layered through out the novel and found those to be some of the darkest and saddest moments. I enjoyed the flash backs more than I did the present. I really had a hard time connecting with Emma. It started right from the couples first meeting each other. Did not set a good tone for her character. If I could of connected more with her as a individual I could of rated 4 stars - Loved It.
The prologue, flashbacks and epilogue were spectacular. Push was a intense read at times that was hard to put down. The ending was crazy and I am sure I will continue one day with book 2. Really need book 2 on hand. Since I had a hard time connecting with Emma I am no rush to continue on. Sometimes the best is to leave the book as is and let my imagination take over.
Even though I could not rate the book higher it was still a nice surprise read that I had no expectations going in. It is unpredictable and original. ...more

Wow! Only Jennifer L. Armentrout can get me to read a Young Adult Suspense. The only Young Adult I like to read every now and then is Paranormal Romance. Don't Look Back was a page turner. I was right there with Samantha trying to figure out what happened that night her and Cassie disappeared. The layers were perfectly placed through out the novel.
"Don't look back. You won't like what you find."
That is exactly what Samantha is dealing with. She was not a good person. Loved that she wanted to be a better person. That she did not like the old her.
I had a few people in mind who was the bad person. One of them I was right about but once revealed it did blow my mind about that person. JLA did an amazing work on who was bad. The only reason I had a clue was because my brain was working non stop trying to figure it out. ...more
