Meh Reads [Skinny Reviews]

This book came highly recommended by one of my favorite authors and you know what, the plot sounds AMAZING! The hero, Lachlain, who is a Lycan has been in prison for almost a hundred years when he scents his mate and chews off his foot to escape. The heroine is a half vampire, half Valkyrie. Vampires and Lycans are at war with each other. Amazing, right? WRONG! I was hugely disappointed. I had such high expectations and I ended up being let down. I liked Lachlain but I HATED Emmaline! Sure, the book started out really good but by the […]

Well, it took me a number of months to get into this book. To say that I was disappointed is such an understatement – this book was MEDIOCRE, to say the least! I was looking forward to this book since I read Lady Bridget’s Diary last year because I liked James. He was written as […]

Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey | DNF Review

Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey | DNF Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. When I read Disorderly Conduct, the first book in the series, I was delightfully surprised! In fact, I went ahead and requested the second book, Indecent Exposure because Jack Garrett was very interesting and what do you know, the second book is his HEA. But no! This book was an utter disappointment! Where was the charm? Where was the explosive chemistry that I was expecting? Gone. Nada. Zilch. Also, […]

Starfall by Melissa Landers | DNF Review

Starfall by Melissa Landers | DNF Review

I am finally DNFing Starfall because OMG the heroine is super annoying and the hero is so beta that I can’t even! It has been a few months since I put this book on hold and the recent restart still did not help at all! I enjoyed Starflight, the first book in the series. The banter was spot on and the characters were amazing! But Starfall totally missed the mark and did not have the same charm as that of the previous book. I eventually had to DNF the audiobook because I just couldn’t listen to Cassia anymore. She was […]

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Insta-love at its WORST! The Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell Audiobook Review

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I honestly don’t know where to start reviewing The Fairest of Them All. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. I am INFURIATED. Okay, I’d like to explain why my feelings are this… harsh. I absolutely HATE insta-love! Sure, there are books that can do this well, but this was NOT it! There is just too much insta-love in this book that I cannot… ARRGHH!! Sigh. Another reason why I am extremely disappointed is because The Fairest of Them All made my books pubbed in 2016 […]
