I’m a huge fan of all of Entangled Crush’s books! They are always adorable and fun to read. Playing The Player is another great addition because it was funny and cute read, as expected. This book just looked all sorts of adorable! I was in the mood for a light read, and that’s exactly what I got, so it was perfect! It is the first book I’ve read from the author and I really liked it.
Trina and Slade are perfect opposites of each other and together they are supposed to be nannying two little kids for the summer. Both Trina and Slade were interviewed separately for the nanny job and Slade’s mom offers Trina with Extra salary if she agrees to mentor slade in being a responsible person. She was hesitant at start but ultimately she gives up because she really needs the money and she agrees with a condition that Slade shouldn’t know about this deal. Slade was always considered as slacker and unreliable by his parents and to prove them wrong, he reluctantly agrees to do the Nanny job because it was either this or forfeit his allowance for the summer. When Slade learns he’s got a Nanny partner, he expects her to be a hot nanny but instead he gets Trina who is a Type-A organized person and definitely not his type. Trina thought that she was completely immune to Slade’s charms but when she finally get’s to see a new different side of him, she realizes her immunity wouldn’t last longer and tries very hard to resist her attraction towards him.
I really liked Trina! At the beginning, She was a bit uptight and a organized person who always follows her binder but after meeting Slade she begins to loosen up. Slade Edmunds is a popular guy in the school, he is a real player, who had his fair share of girls and they always like to flank around him. He is totally charming and swoon worthy guy who is also very good with kids. I love his messy fashion sense especially his shoe lace hair tie. Both Trina and Slade are truly an adorable couple and I really liked their relationship, and not to forget their banters. There’s no insta-love because their relationship began with hate and it slowly turned to love after they get to know each other better. Gillian and Max are really cute kids specially Gillian, she’s definitely a trouble maker and both kids actions has always brought a smile to my face. Alex is another character that I’ve come to like, he is a fun guy and also Slade’s best friend.
The plot was quite predictable with some clichés but it was well executed. I really enjoyed the author’s great writing style. The pacing of the plot was slow but still it was entertaining and I wasn’t bored anywhere. It has well written characters and there’s a nice character development of Trina at the end. Another best thing about this book was, it was written in alternative pov which I always appreciate in a book.
Overall, it is fun and entertaining read, and I really enjoyed reading it! It has great characters, good plot pacing, great writing style and an adorable story line. If you are looking for a sweet, cute, fluffy, romantic YA contemporary read then I highly recommend this book....more

Everything, Everything is really a heart warming and delightful story. I’ve been hearing praises for this book all over the blogoshpere that made me curious enough to check it out. After reading it, I can pretty much say that it definitely lives up to all the hype. I really enjoyed reading this book because it’s got a unique story line and I’ve never read anything like this before. Both Madeline and Olly are great characters and I adore their relationship.
The story is about Madeline Whittier, a 17 year old girl who is suffering from a rare disease called SCID( Severe Combined Immunodeficiency). Due to her illness, she has never set her foot in the outside world since she was a child because the outside unfiltered air is pretty much harmful to her that could potentially kill her. She lives with her over protective mother who is a doctor and also her nurse called Carla. Madeline is also an avid reader and book blogger. Her mother and her nurse are the only friends in her life because outside visitors are not allowed in her house and she gets a glimpse of the outside world only through her window. Her life takes an interesting turn when a new family moves in next door.
I really loved Maddy! She’s an amazing character. She was quite optimistic who just wants to live her life happily while she can despite her illness. I also enjoyed her wittiness and fun personality. Her being a avid reader is another thing that I’ve liked about her. Olly is another great character that I’ve really liked in this book. He was sweet and adorable and I totally loved his mini skit with the bundt cake. I really enjoyed how their relationship developed slowly with IM chats and emails. It is wonderful how they found escape from their realities in each other and together, they really make a cute couple.
The plot was very unique, fast paced and beautiful. I didn’t know there was a rare disease like SCID existed. Both Maddy and Olly are well written characters and I absolutely loved both of them. I liked Maddy’s relationship with her nurse Carla who is like a second mother to her and always encourages her to live her life to the fullest. The story was written in Madeline’s POV but I would’ve loved it more if it was written in alternative POV because I really wanted to know what’s going through Olly’s mind nonetheless it was enjoyable read. For a debut author, Nicola Yoon does have a great writing style, it was simple and perfect. I liked how the plot was executed even though it was somewhat predictable and I also liked all the illustrations, graphs, diagrams, journal entries. The end scene was really wonderful because it did brought a smile to my face and I’d wished there were few more pages left.
Overall, I loved everything! This book was unputdownable from the start and just read in one sitting. It was truly a great debut novel from Nicola Yoon and I look forward to read her future works. Everything, Everything sets itself apart as something other than your average YA fiction and I would recommend this book to everyone who likes reading YA contemporary....more
This book was absolutely fantastic and Epic. The highlight of this book was it’s amazing world building. It’Same Review Posted Here: Dreamy Addictions
This book was absolutely fantastic and Epic. The highlight of this book was it’s amazing world building. It’s got a brilliant plot and well-written characters. This book may seem hard to get into especially with the world building and all the info dumping. It really took a lot of time for me to get into it and grasp everything about how Allomancy works. It’s an engaging read and enjoyed every moment in it. I must say, this book shows the fabulous creativity of the author and definitely lives up to all the hype.
The Story was set in Luthadel, which was ruled by the Lord Ruler who claimed control over the world since thousand years ago. The people in Luthadel are divided into two Classes, the Noblemen and the skaa, the peasants who are enslaved by the nobles. Some Nobles has the gift to perform Allomancy, Allomancy is nothing but burning of various metals inside the body that can give power to soothe, rioting emotions etc. Mistborn is someone who can use all the metals which is really a rare gift to have. Inter-breeding between the Noblemen and Skaa has been forbidden to avoid the gifts passed down to a skaa. People who wouldn’t obey the rules are cruelly executed. There are obligators, they punish people who doesn’t obey the rules and also the steel inquisitors, who are very scary looking with all the intricate eye tattoos and spikes sticking out of their eye sockets. Steel Inquisitors are somewhat dangerous assassins who can detect allomancers and they’ll kill any hybrid skaa who possess the gift of allomancy without any mercy. Many Skaa rebellions have tried to overthrow the evil Lord Ruler before but every time they are utterly failed. Now a new rebellion has born which is led by a mistborn who is also the sole survivor of hathsin.
Vin is a skaa, she is a street urchin who only depends on herself and never trusts anyone because she thinks everyone will betray her. She is a member of a thieving crew and only female in the group. She is a strong female character who has survived on the streets with her luck and cleverness. I’ve really liked her character in it, going through all the hard life and abuse had made her strong and clever. Her fate completely changes when she meets Kelsier who claims that she is actually a Mistborn, a rare gift only passed down to the noble bloods. She becomes the apprentice of kelsier, who is also a mistborn and trains under him. After meeting Kelsier she comes to know what friendship really means and slowly begins to trust people. Elend, who belongs to nobles class is a romantic interest of Vin and I always look forward to their interaction because they’d make a cute couple.
Kelsier, who is also a skaa is another main protagonist in the book. Several years back he was a famous thieving crew leader in the Luthadel who can pull any heist. After getting caught by the Lord Ruler himself, he was sent to the pits of hathsin which is equivalent to a death sentence because no one has ever survived after getting into the pits. Miraculously, Kelsier is the only one who escapes from the pit making him the only “Survivor Of Hathsin”. After several years, he is finally back with a new plan along with a crew of masterminds to overthrow the Lord Ruler and free the Skaa. Kelsier is a great character in the plot, he is very determined and never loses hope despite all the odds against him or how bad the situation maybe, and I always enjoyed his smugness and humor.
This book has a fantastic plot which was intriguing and engaging through out. Even though it was a long book I wasn’t bored anywhere because of it’s interesting plot which was written in both Vin and Kelsier’s POV. The pacing of the plot was really good and I really liked the main characters including all of the supporting characters in it. I also liked the magic system in it which was quite unique. The world building was really amazing and applaud worthy. The writing style was excellent and vivid. There is also a huge character development of Vin at the end. The Lord Ruler is quite a mysterious character who brings mystery to the plot because he isn’t revealed until the end of the book and from the start I was highly anticipating for his entrance. All the action sequences in it are well-written and the final confrontation was really great. I must warn you though there are some violent scenes with blood and gore in this book.
Overall, I totally loved it! It’s a perfect fantasy book with lots of action, adventure, fantasy and intrigue that you wouldn’t want to miss. After getting my mind blown by this book, I can’t wait to read the sequel to it. It’s a must read for every fantasy lovers and highly recommended to everyone. Even if you aren’t into fantasy genre just give this book a try....more
Tiger’s Destiny is the best book out of all the books I’ve read in the series so far and I’m quite satisfiedReview Also Posted Here: Dreamy Addictions
Tiger’s Destiny is the best book out of all the books I’ve read in the series so far and I’m quite satisfied with how it turned out in the end even though it was given a partial happy ending. The Plot was truly amazing with all the action in it and it was engaging from the start till the end. This book has made me a bit emotional especially regarding the death of one of the character that I’d really liked and it’s a sad thing that he wouldn’t be in the journey for the final quest.
The book continues from where it was left off in the previous book in which Kelsey has been kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Lokesh. With the help of both Ren and Kishan, she gets rescued from Lokesh who wants to make her his wife. After the rescue mission, Kelsey and her tiger’s begins their journey for their final quest to break the curse. During their journey, tragedy strikes while fighting with the evil which emotionally breaks them from the inside but still they had to continue. They set off to find the final gift which is Rope of fire which can help you to travel through time. In this quest, we meet so many mythical creatures that we’ve never seen before. This book is full of adventure and more action-packed than previous books and I’d really wished there were few more pages left.
At last, Kelsey has finally realized who she loves the most but she’s still the same stubborn character ever. When another female gives attention to Ren she goes totally ballistic about it, I think she’s totally hypocrite I mean had she forgotten how she did the same to him by acting all lovey-dovey with Kishan in front of him even though knowing how much it’s hurting him. Now she neglects her own boyfriend and gives her total attention to Ren just because she feels that she may loose Ren forever to another girl.
Anamika is another character that I’ve come to like and she’s more likable than Kelsey and more sensible too. I wouldn’t have minded if Ren ended up with her. Poor Kishan it’s totally unfair for him and loving Kelsey has brought him nothing but heartache.
Despite the teenage angst drama, the plot was fantastic and epic. I’ve really enjoyed their adventure with Rakshasha’s, their fight with twins, their struggle with the chimera(greek mythical creature) and also their epic final battle with Lokesh. Even after the final battle with the Evil has been concluded everything hasn’t ended yet cause there’s still something important about the tiger’s fulfilling their destiny’s. Ren and Kishan has their own destiny’s to follow and it has been very heart breaking because after going through so many obstacles and struggles they had to make a ultimate sacrifice at the end which was so cruel because I really wanted everyone to have a happy ending.
All the fight and battle scenes are described so vividly that will give you clear Image of it and I’ve felt that I was actually present at the scene. This book has both happy ending and sad ending too but I’d wish there was alternate ending to it. Overall, It was awesome read and I can’t wait to read more about Kishan in the next book which is also the final book in the series. It’s become a journey for me too following this trio’s adventures and I’d really miss Ren and Kishan a lot after the series completes. Have you read this series yet? If not, I would highly recommend you to read it. :D...more
*I have received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.*
Aqua is a refreshing take on a paranormal genre and we get to meet a new paranormal being that can live in water and on land. It’s the first book that I’ve read from the author. It’s unique concept piqued my interest and I didn’t have any expectations when I got this book. It’s got a nice plot, dynamic characters and all I can say is that I pretty much liked it but it wasn’t amazing enough for me to love it.
The story is about 17 year old girl Layla McKelland who lives with her mom and her aunt. On every year of her birthday, Layla’s family is moved from one coastal place to another coastal place without any questions. Now it’s Layla’s 17th birthday and it’s time for them to move to another new place but something exciting awaits for her in the near future which completely changes her fate. At the new place she meets two guys named Tristan and Pyke who may be not ordinary as they seem. When Layla witnesses Pyke transforming into something else she couldn’t believe her own eyes. After She was attacked in her own house by an unknown force she couldn’t take it anymore and confronts Tristan for the answers, who claims he knows more about her father and also about herself which she wasn’t aware of. Later she learns that she is actually not a human and her father is someone important which automatically makes her a target for everyone who opposes him. Now Layla has to deal with a war she wasn’t aware of and also her developing feelings for Tristan.
Layla is sassy, sarcastic, tough character who I’ve liked her better at the start but later she turned out to be more annoying than I thought which made me lose interest in her. Tristan is sweet, caring and a total gentleman who always feels protective towards Layla not just because it’s his job. Pyke is a total bad boy who always likes to get on Layla’s nerves. He may act like a bad guy but there is a goodness inside of him and that is what I like about him. As for the relationship, there isn’t any insta-attraction between Tristan and Layla instead their relationship developed slowly with friendship which I totally admire but the sad thing is I felt the lack of chemistry between them.
The plot was good but honestly I liked the first and last part of the book the most and all the training sessions with Tristan left me bored. There isn’t much world building in it which is a disappointment for me because I was looking forward to it when I picked it up. Another issue of mine is the pacing of the plot which seemed slow at most of the parts. As for the characters, they are quite good but I had trouble connecting with pyke because he is mostly AWOL in this book and I’d really like to know more about him. I liked the Author’s Writing Style, it was witty and realistic. Despite it’s flaws, Aqua is a great start for a new fantasy series.
Overall, it’s a good fantasy book for YA readers. I hope it’s sequel would be much better with better world building. Even though I had issues with some aspects of this book, It’s a unique read and definitely worth a try....more
I’m so glad that I’ve finally finished reading it cause it was pretty much long book to read and it has moreSame Review Posted Here:Dreamy Addictions
I’m so glad that I’ve finally finished reading it cause it was pretty much long book to read and it has more than 500 pages. Compared with the previous books this one is filled with more adventure, action and a frustrating love triangle. Despite the annoying triangle in it, I really liked it a lot more than the previous books. I’ve been so excited to read this because there’s going to be dragons in it which sounded intriguing. It’s really wonderful how the author come up with this amazing plot by mixing chinese and Indian mythology and turning it into her own new fictitious myth which I must agree is a bit controversial but I totally loved it.
Kelsey and her tiger’s are back again with another quest to break a 300 year old Indian Curse but this time they had to deal with five dragons. They had to visit all the five dragons which ultimately leads them to durga’s next prize but it’s not going to be easy because they had to go through so many obstacles and trials to finally obtain what they are looking for. This quest is pretty much exciting with all the underwater adventures and action in it. Out of all the dragons I’ve really liked the green dragon who dressed Ren and Kishan as prince’s and Kelsey as a princess like they are in a fairy tale adventure.
Besides facing the dragons, the trio had to deal with another issue which was like another quest for them but it isn’t related to the curse. Both Ren and Kishan are vying for Kelsey’s love and she is absolutely torn between them because now she loves both guys. The thing that frustrated me the most while reading it was kelsey’s mixed feelings for both guys. Her love for Ren is very deep but still she had no trouble kissing Kishan and she likes it too. After Ren finally remembers everything it was already too late because Kelsey finally decides to stay with Kishan which completely tears him apart. This triangle reminds me a lot of Vampire diaries where two brothers vying for the same girl.
I’d wish I could Strangle kelsey here because she is hurting both of them even though knowing who is in her heart and I really feel pity for Kishan, she uses him as some kind of back-up guy who she thinks will give her better future. I think both Ren and Kishan’s personalities has been swapped I mean Kishan has become more gentle like Ren but I’d really missed his flirty nature and boldness. As for Ren, he seemed much bolder than before and his kisses has become more hotter too. I’m really curious who she’s going to end up with, I thought it would be Ren but now I’m not sure but I hope she would make it clear in the next book because It’s really getting on my nerves and I don’t think I could handle it anymore.
The plot was amazing but I can’t say it was perfect cause there are some parts where I felt it was dragged too much and the lessons on scuba diving part seemed lengthy and a bit boring too but Wes is quite an interesting guy to know and he always likes to annoy Ren and Kishan by flirting with kelsey. The writing as always, it’s very descriptive and vivid. Actually I didn’t expected it to be a underwater adventure so it was a bit surprising for me but in a good way cause I totally loved it, there’s lots of action with the sea monsters and not to forget the giant sharks too.
Even though there are some flaws in it, it was a fantastic read for me. The ending was a big cliffhanger which I saw it coming and I’m so glad that I wouldn’t have to wait because I’m on my way to the next book. The Evil Sorcerer Lokesh has finally made his re-appearance and I’m so excited to know what’s going to happen next and there’s still one more quest left to completely break the curse so can’t wait to read it. I’m pretty much satisfied with this series so far and I highly recommend it to everyone....more

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
Wow! This book was a total surprise for me I didn’t expected I would enjoy it as much as I did. It’s the perfect package of entertainment for all the YA book lovers, I just loved everything in it. The blurb sounded so intriguing that I had to check this out and I can’t believe it’s going to be this good. After reading the first few chapters of it I was totally hooked and I’m more than satisfied with it. I think it’s a great start for a new fantasy series.
17 year old Lady Samantha is the only daughter of Duke of Haywood. Her only interest lays in sword fighting and nothing else. After her mother was killed by a Demon, her father becomes cold and closed off to everyone even his own daughter. To avenge her mother, Sam wanted to become a Paladin who kills demons, but her father wants her to get married and produce a heir to continue his lineage. To avoid this fate and in order to become a Paladin, she disguises herself as a boy to train under the elite group of warriors of Thule. Unfortunately, her mentor is none other than the famous paladin and her hero Tristan Lyons, who she had met him few years ago when she was almost killed by a demon. During her training, she is co-partnered with Braedan, a half demon who has secrets of his own. Together they become a trio and develops a bond of friendship with time and they always fight together against demons. The plot takes a interesting turn when they finally meet the rival faction who wasn’t what they thought would be.
Samantha is the strong female character who’s got so much sass, witt and courage in her. I totally loved her character in this plot. She’s the perfect kickass character you’re looking for and she wasn’t a total perfection but still strives for it. Coming to Braedan, the half demon who every other paladin trainee loathes and afraid of is totally swoon worthy guy with long white hair and garnet eyes that will definitely captivate you. Being a half demon I didn’t expected him to have a calm and gentle personality which made me like him more. As for Tristan, he is the smug character who always likes to taunt Sam but still he is a very likable character too. The author did a good job in portraying the friendship between these three. The scene at the brothel was really hilarious. I liked how the relationship between Braedan and Sam developed slowly from friendship to something more. To whoever thinking there might be a triangle in it well, rest assured there’s no triangle in this plot.
The plot was truly amazing and well-written. The story was written in Sam, Braedan and Tristan’s POV which didn’t bothered me at all instead it made easier to grasp everything. This book got all kickass-action, humor and hot romance that you wouldn’t want to put it down. It has a fast paced plot and the writing style was quite good for a debut author. There are so many twists and turns in it that would make it more engaging and interesting read. I must appreciate the author for writing this wonderful book which has great characterization, brilliant plot and good world building.
Overall, it’s a fantastic read for me! After how the book ended I think there’s a sequel to it and I do wish to see the trio in action again. With everything figured out I hope the sequel would be much more interesting and I want more of Braedan. This book has so much potential to be a hit series and needs to be read by every fantasy lovers....more

I have mixed feelings for this book because I both loved it and hated it. The sole reason for my hate for it was kelsey, who seemed so much more annoying than the previous book. The quest for breaking the 300 year old Indian curse continues with a new adventure. In this, Kishan and Kelsey journey together for the next quest where we get to know more about Kishan which I’m anticipating. Despite not liking Kelsey, I’ve really enjoyed reading it and loved all the adventure in it.
The book continues where it was left off. Even after Coming back to Oregan, Kelsey is tormented by the memories of Ren after she rejects his feelings before leaving for Oregan just because she thinks he is too good for her. To get over Ren and give herself another chance in love, she dates three guys even though her mind and heart is filled with Ren and except for Li, the other two guys she dates are total jerks. The first 30 percent of the book was focused on the normal relationship drama between Ren and Kelsey. Ren moves to Oregan just so he could prove her that his feelings for her are real and requests her that she should give him a chance too. Honestly, I think she doesn’t deserve both guys I mean how can she doubt Ren’s feelings for her when everyone can clearly see how he was head over heels in love with her.
I don’t know why miss Houck created such dimwitted and annoying character for this series. Another thing that made me hate her more was her mixed feelings for both Ren and Kishan. In Tiger’s Curse, I really adored Ren and Kelsey’s relationship but now I’m pretty much doubting her feelings for Ren because she easily succumbs to Kishan’s charm and Kisses, I wouldn’t blame her for it because he is alluring but still I’d expected her love for Ren to be strong. The triangle thing in it seemed very much twilightish you know what I mean. Kishan was introduced as Cocky, over confident and proud character but in Tiger’s quest you get to see the vulnerable side of him which made me like him more and he seemed no different than Ren. I must agree, Kishan was an appealing character in this series but I would always root for Ren. I really missed Ren in this book because he doesn’t have much part in this plot and this time it was more about Kishan and Kelsey.
Danger reaches to the Oregon and Kelsey was once again back in India but due to some circumstances (which I’m not going to reveal) She and Kishan has to travel together for their next quest. The quest in this book was both interesting and more dangerous than the previous one and I really liked the place known as Shangri-la. In this journey, Kelsey and Kishan gets more closer and Kelsey can’t deny her feelings for Kishan but she still loves Ren which I totally didn’t get it at all. It’s like history repeating where both guys once again fell for the same girl Argh!. I wouldn’t mind even if both of them didn’t end up with her.
Despite all my issues with this book, I’ve really liked it. The plot was engaging enough to continue reading it and I always enjoyed the adventures in it which was the best part I’m liking in this series and not to forget Ren and Kishan too. The end was totally shocking and unexpected too, I can’t wait to read the next in the series and I hope their next quest would be much more exciting. I highly recommend this series to everyone who are looking for a good adventurous book with a mix of romance....more
It was adventurous, romantic and fascinating tale that will take you to an adventurous ridActual Rating: 3.5 Review Also Posted Here: Dreamy Addictions
It was adventurous, romantic and fascinating tale that will take you to an adventurous ride filled with mystery. Though it was released a long time ago I’ve never gave it much attention to this series but It was all changed because of Miss Houck’s new series named Reawakened which was recently published and it sounded pretty much intriguing so I’ve decided to read the tiger saga before getting to the reawakened series. Well, I didn’t have much expectations when I started reading it and it was much better than I’ve expected but still it wasn’t the best. Another reason for me to read this book was to meet the great tigers in this series who I’ve heard so much about them in the book community.I must agree, It really was a great read and I can see all the effort put by the author which was applaud worthy and I’ve really enjoyed reading it.
Kelsey was a likable character but she wasn’t mind blowing either. Her sarcastic and caring personality was what made me like her but she was bit annoying at sometimes. I think she was very brave to pat a circus tiger’s head but in actual reality it might be a stupid thing to do but I did enjoyed reading the interacting scenes of both Kelsey and the white tiger at the circus. Dhiren mostly called as Ren in this book was a charming character and I pretty much loved knowing him. He possess attractive personality and regal behavior that will definitely sweep girls off their feet. He not only protects kelsey but also respects her too. The chemistry between Kelsey and Ren was both sweet and Electrifyingly hot. As for Kishan, he was total opposite to Ren who was bold in nature, arrogant and always flirts with kelsey just to annoy Ren. Though he may project confident persona but inside he carries a huge guilt that still tears him out from the inside. I’ve liked both Dhiren and Kishan but I couldn’t say who I’ve liked the most because they are both charming in their own way and I’m very excited to know more about Kishan in the sequel.Another character that I liked knowing was Mr. Kadam who was loyal and fatherly figure to Ren and Kishan.
The plot was really fantastic and it was truly amazing how the author linked it with the tiger’s curse and Durga’s prophecy. The Language used by Ren wasn’t modern Hindi at all, it sounded more like from the prehistoric times and a bit formal too but what do you expect from three hundred year old cursed tiger. The action in the Kishkindha was the part that I enjoyed reading the most where both Ren and Kelsey had to face some dangers in it just to get to their destination and the blood sucking water creatures named Kappas seemed a bit scary in it. The end wasn’t as I expected and it made me hate kelsey more for her stupid decision just because she suddenly realized her self low-esteem which kinda ruined the end for me. Every thing in this plot was well detailed and descriptive but there are sometimes It became annoying when unnecessary parts were also explained in detail. The writing was so vivid and descriptive that you could visually imagine everything quite easily.
Overall, It was a pleasant read and I really liked it.It was a great concept and now I know why there was so much hype about this series. I’m so glad that I’ve read this book and I hope the sequel would be more adventurous and action packed. Can’t wait to read the next in the series. I highly recommend this series to everyone who are into adventurous tale with a mix of romance....more

Besides fantasy, sometimes I enjoy reading sweet, cute and fluffy contemporary romance books too but I really hate it if it has too much sweetness with awkward romance and this one contained too much of it. I agree that it was cute read but I felt that it was some cute cheesy romance written by some middle grader and I’ve read better books than this in Wattpad. Another major issue with this book was the poor editing, there are too many grammatical errors and spellings mistakes to ignore and they really made it so annoying for me to read cause you could find them in all the pages. With this much of issues in the book I’m quite astonished how it was possible for this to be published. The writing style of this book was also terrible. The main characters in this plot are 17 and 18 year olds but they acted more like 14 year olds. The romance in it was so awkward that it didn’t seemed realistic and it has too many Clichés that I really had to skip some pages. The plot really has some potential but it was poorly executed and the story was already finished at the first half of the book and the remaining second half was pointless it contained all the lovey dovey stuff with some drama between the couple until the boy finally leaves for the college after he proposes her with a promise ring and finally the end.I can’t believe how some readers could actually give this book more than 3 stars rating. This book totally deserves to be DNF’ed but I don’t leave books unfinished so after some major skipping of pages, I have finally finished reading it. Overall, this book utterly failed in everything I mean with the plot, characterization and the writing too....more

Thank you to Jane McGarry for sending me a free ecopy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
First of all, It’s quite good and decent read and I think it’s a great start for a debut Author. Though I haven’t enjoyed it as much as expected but still I liked it. It’s intriguing synopsis is what made me interested to check this out. The plot wasn’t deep but it was interesting enough to make it an engaging read.
It’s the story of a girl named Olivia Davenport, daughter of King’s Master of Arms. Every girl of her age dreams of being a princess but what Olivia wants to be is quite opposite from it. Since young, Olivia has been training with other squires who are under the command of her father and she always dreams of being a knight but she can’t attain knighthood just because she is a girl. When her father refuses to take her along with all the other squires for a mission, she feels angry and disappointed. But Olivia is a stubborn girl who doesn’t give up easily, she disguises herself as a boy to sneak in to the mission. When she was found out, her father sends her back to her home along with prince Liam as her escort. She was once again disappointed but she didn’t expected that there would be another adventure awaits her and during her journey she discovers love that is impossible.
Olivia is clever, brave, stubborn, independent girl who stands up for what she wants. She is pretty much likable character who is easy to connect but I did get annoyed by her sometimes though. I didn’t liked her when she deceived her best friend Puck who trusted her. Liam is perfect prince character who is calm, regal and charming. I don’t know why Olivia is so quick to judge him after the first meeting because he doesn’t have any mean streak in him and I didn’t saw any arrogance from him like you normally see in all the princes. My main issue with this book is the insta-love from Olivia’s side and I also felt the romantic relationship didn’t portrayed well in it. I would’ve loved it more if their relationship developed slowly with more interactions between them. The chemistry between them seemed lacking and it felt quite awkward to me. Apart from romance in the book, I loved everything in it. As for the supporting characters, I really liked Athos and he is my favorite character from the book. Athos may be an outlaw but he is a wise guy with great knowledge and I always loved his sarcastic talk.
The plot is simple but it’s really amazing and also the best part of the book. All the characters are well-written and it has good world building too. The writing style may not be creative but it’s quite impressive. The rescue mission with the help of band of outlaws is the part that I enjoyed reading the most.
Overall, I enjoyed reading it! I liked the story line and how the plot was developed. It’s a good adventurous historical teen novel with strong female protagonist. It’s a light read and can be finished in one sitting. Do I recommend it? yes, I would definitely recommend it....more
