Blurb: Amelia’s heart is torn between the new, the old and the familiar but when her heart screams out what it wants, Amelia listens. It’s not always easy since a conflicted heart wants different things on different days, but she finds a way to work around her indecisiveness and focus on what she needs- what she thinks she can’t live without.

The closer Amelia gets to figuring out her love life, the more Hawk unravels. While he deals with loose ends and new threats, his strategic plans start to fall into place. Pawns advance, the King’s in the ideal position and the Rook hosts the Mad Lib Auction. What he doesn’t expect is for his Queen to be in danger and for Knights to steal hearts.

 

SOS 

**** I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. ****

Okay so when the first book ended the way it did, I needed this book as soon as possible and I got it from Sonya right away just by emailing her. I just had to know what was going to happen next with Lia and the craziness of her life that included Hawk.Things got real interesting fast.

As soon as the book started I was pulled in because Lia was being pulled in different directions right away. Feelings were being spilled and she didn’t know what to do. Hell, she still had to figure out her own. Once she does, everything turns into chaos and Hawk goes mad. Madder than the mad hatter and it isn’t cool. 

Something bad happens to Lia because someone is after her and everyone is trying to figure out who it is. Is it a friend? One of the men after her love? Is it Hawk? Who is it? Well, whoever it is they are done with the pranks and are out to kill. Who said college was all about learning and life and sometimes falling in love? 

There is so much going on in this book and I absolutely love it. I didn’t think that the second book could get any better but it did. I couldn’t get enough of the book with all the twists and turns. Also with everyone finally getting their feelings together and figured out. 

I adore the progress where Lia and Robins are at but of course I would love more. I will always love more of these two. They are just the best! 

The way the book ended was even more of a shocker than how the first book ended! Like fall out of my chair shocker. Like whaaaa? Babam, no thank you ma’am.  I expected the last half, but not the first half Sonya.  Although I suppose upon further reflection it makes sense, but wooo give a girl some warning something’s gonna happen.  

Now, I have to wait until the next book is out and what is a girl to do with an ending like that? I mean, for real?

Blurb: She’s my roommate.

I know how she takes her tea, how she organizes her closet.

I know when she goes to bed each night, what she eats for breakfast, the passcode on her phone.

I know she calls her mother on Mondays, takes barre on Thursdays, and meets her friends for drinks on Fridays.

But more important than any of that … I know what she did.

 

Mr Sandman, Bring Me A Dream

*** I received this ARC in exchanged for an honest review. ***

So when I read the blurb, I was extremely curious as to what this was about. What happened? What DID The roommate do?  Was this like, I Know What You Did Last Summer ? I HAD to know. So as soon as I started reading this book, I was pulled in because it wasn’t what I thought it would be like at first. Nothing was suspicious, I mean NOTHING. So I was a little confused, but I carried on because I needed to know what happened next. 

Everything was completely normal. Even including one of the main characters being down on her luck in the beginning. So I read on to see where her life and luck would take her in this story…

I just knew something good would happen. I was so right! As the book went on things got weirder and weirder. At one point I wondered if I was in The Twilight Zone. Things weren’t making sense and had me questioning why the characters did that. Namely, that damn roommate! There are some bizarre things that happen that had me scratching my head, like whaaaa? I would not want a roommate like that FYI. I never felt so weirded out in my life.

Also the plot twists that happen in the book towards the end, I didn’t see coming, you guys. I felt like the rug was ripped out from under me and I fell on my ass. I looked around like, what the fuck just happened and how? It was jarring to say the least.  This book honestly reminded me of the book, The Girl On The Train and the movie, Single White Female along with its own twisted, mixed up ideas. 

I look forward to reading another book by Minka Kent because this one was extremely satisfying. Read at your own risk.

Blurb: 

Clive Menard is just an ordinary guy living an ordinary life. But when a talking spider crawls inside his head, things get a lot less ordinary…and people start dying.

Could an itsy-bitsy arachnid be behind the killing spree terrorizing Clive’s community? To evade a sharp detective and find a murderer among friends, Clive must shake the cobwebs loose and piece together the puzzle of his life, all without falling prey to a dark force beyond his comprehension.

 

Something Wicked 

 

*** I was given this ARC, in exchange for an honest review. ***

 

When I was contacted about reading What Hides Within, I was really intrigued. This is Jason’s debut book, but with a new cover. I am not sure what the first cover was like but… I personally think that this cover definitely matches the story’s creepy/horror factor. I don’t know who designed it, but that was genius.

Before I even started reading this, I wondered if it was going to be like Spiderman with an arachnid involved.

Just that this time the spider talked to the main character and crawls inside his head, then people start dropping like flies.

What could be more intriguing than that? And who or what is behind all of this? 

So, once I started reading the book, I realized that something wasn’t quite right because Clive shows his crazy side right away and I was like, wait what?! Things are not as they seem in this horror ride of an adventure, if you’d like to call it that. There are some sick and twisted themes and events in here that I can only call marvelous because I love horror and I am happy to say so.

No one and nothing can be trusted, as it should be in horror. I found myself wondering what would happen next and I was also extremely pleased about that. Plus I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard while reading something so gritty and horrifying.

It. Was. Glorious. 

Magical Even. 

I think I even spilled some tears laughing as I woke my neighbors from it, while reading into the late night hours. TOTALLY WORTH IT.  

I loved pretty much everything about this book, even though I hate spiders with a burning vengeance. Nasty little things. Cue scrunched up face. The only thing that I didn’t like was the ending

That ending though. WHYYYYYYYYYYY !!!!!!

Why you gotta do me like that Jason? 

After everything we’ve been through….. WHYYY??? 

 

I think I might be scarred for life.

Disappointed 

 

 

*** I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review. ***

 

After reading The Soul Reaver, I thought this was fitting as my next read and was feeling a little pleased. However, once I started reading the book that feeling changed. This book was extremely hard to continue reading. I actually DNF it and only got to page 86. What I did read of Broken House was full of duplicated sentences and grammar issues. The book would jump around a lot and was hard to keep up with which character was doing what. You had to wait for a name to drop or a description and try to guess which character that was. This got really confusing and frustrating quickly.

I mean sure, since this was about a rehab facility there were characters like that in there, but it didn’t really go into depth about that. It should have represented that better. There were patients that were mentally unstable and that part was represented well, especially with this character named Arthur. I am pretty sure he is the psychopath mentioned in the blurb, but I felt like the story was dragging BIG TIME. Like the worst I have ever seen for a book. I wanted to do anything other than read it and that is just when I knew I couldn’t finish reading it any longer. 

There were some moments where the characters were funny, but it wasn’t enough for me to continue reading the book. I can’t get past how the blurb mentions Cam’s brother Charlie, like he is going to be a huge part of the book when the only thing he had done so far in what I had read was call Cam.  It was to check up on him.

I feel like the whole blurb was misleading and I really wish this book would have been better.

I am really disappointed right now.  This was supposed to make me feel better after reading my last book, but now I feel worse. I am still sad about The Soul Reaver and irritated about this. 

If I hadn’t laughed at what some of the characters said in the beginning, mainly Avril and Rachel’s conversations and some of Arthur’s. This would have been a one star review. 

I am somewhat mind-blown how there are so many high reviews for the book. I am not sure how others got past the book going so slow and the odd character issues. 

To each their own I suppose.

Rebel Just For Kicks

 

*** I was given this ARC, in exchange for an honest review. ***

When I first saw the description of this I was intrigued, and I had the right to be. I had never heard of a soul reaver before in fantasy before. So I had to find out what Daphne was all about. You see, she calls herself a monster because she has to feed off of the feelings of others and then once a year consume a soul for her to stay alive.

BUT, she only takes negative feelings and souls with  layers of darkness to their  very depths. For that reason, I don’t find her a monster. I find her gentle and kind. Just a beautiful being. She just doesn’t see it. 

::::WARNING:::: There are triggers in here for self-harm. Daphne harms herself because the souls inside her ARE NOT GOOD. THEY ARE DARK. 

Upon looking for the soul to consume she stumbles into a new world that is complicated and dangerous. Where it seems every being in it wants her dead even though she belongs in this new world as a reaver. She doesn’t know whom to trust. 

There are so many twists and surprises in this book that I was amazed. You MUST keep your eyes open at all times so you don’t miss anything. Someone is always scheming or something else is happening. 

So much action happens in this book that it is almost unbelievable how small of a book this is. I just can’t fathom how Victoria came up with all of this and fit it all in here. I really don’t understand how such literary genius didn’t come across my radar sooner. This will be a forever favorite of mine.

Daphne is really powerful and the way her powers are shown and grow throughout the book are exponential. The way her powers are described is with intricate detail and is really beautiful how she sees people’s souls and feelings. I would even go as far to say that it is breathtaking. 

Insert SWOON here. 

Daphne finds true love with him and I couldn’t be happier. They have been through so much together in this book and I know they will in the next one too. I couldn’t have picked a better match because this pair is so beautiful together it actually hurts to read about it. Of all the things that has happened to them they deserve some joy in their lives. 

Alright, so I knew before I started this book that it had a cliffhanger ending, but damn. With Mist just “in the wind”, it can’t end like that. With all that happened right before the ending.  It was like there was an information dump on me, then BOOM the book ended. I can’t handle and process that all at once!! Give a girl a break! Plus I have to wait till book 2 is out to find out about my Mist. 

I felt this book down to my heart, soul and back and it was crushing. I don’t know what I am going to do with myself. So you better read this!!!

*Hugs Self* 

I guess it is fitting that the next book I am reading is called Broken House. I am feeling a little broken after that.

Rumor Has It

 

*** I voluntary reviewed this ARC, in exchange for an honest review. ***

 

I was excited about this book because it sounded sooo great! Who wouldn’t want to read about a supposed fictional character that is immortal and possibly involved with the bible? I was drawn in with that blurb right away. Then I started reading the book and was  a little confused with why all the detail on architecture.

I mean I love architecture and everything and it’s details, but whaaaa?

Why does the book start like that and go on and on like that for a bit?

Way to confuse a girl.

What the hell.

Plus while describing the architecture of the buildings surrounding the main character, the sentences are a disaster. I mean that there are fragmented sentences and/or run-on sentences like I have never seen. Things are listed and there are commas of course, but then more things are listed and more commas.

I feel like this needs to be edited more and I also feel awful for saying so because this was an interesting book.

It just needs help. 

Okay, so now the good part of the review! Woohoo! So as you go on with the story, it does get much better and more interesting. There are some twists that are thrown in too that some may be able to guess and some not.

Overall I enjoyed this and thought it was fascinating, but I was not in agreement with the main character Tom towards the end.

I feel like he was manipulated and saddened by what happened in and around his life.

So I wish that it had not ended like that.

You’ll just have to see what I mean by reading it.

Okay, so I thought that by at least the title of the book, this would be humorous. At least a little. *sigh* I guess the joke was on me, because I DNF this when my kindle said 8%. The book was not what I thought it would be. I mean I understand that she is attractive and everything and this was an insta-love read, but damn. This was written so poorly.

It was cringe-worthy the way the main male character was towards her. I was really creeped out. Like he hadn’t even met her and was acting all fucking in love and possessive and like he needed to sleep with her because the way she ate his donuts. He acted like he would go and get her through a glass pane and ravage her over it. I was revolted. 

Then when they finally met, she was so happy he wanted to have sex with her over how much she enjoyed the donuts his company made. He gave her a job and it was like voiced that she would have to sleep with him to keep it. She was all for it. I wanted to throw up. I just couldn’t finish reading this trash. Some people actually said they loved this and gave it 5 stars. I think they were smoking something or other. 

I just don’t get how this was even published. Must be off their damn rocker, you guys. Honestly. 

 

 

 

Okay so, I read this on Sep 2, 2017, but was so like WTF over it that I waited until now to post about it. Can you blame me though? I mean, seriously. Ugh, I definitely don’t recommend reading it. I don’t even know if I would read other stuff by this author since this is horrifying and not in a good way. I love horror books, but not like these.

 

Have a good one you guys and good luck if you try to read this one!
