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

Rating 3 Stars - Liked It
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
