I Needed Something to Happen! All the Way by Kristen Proby [ARC Review]

I Needed Something to Happen! All the Way by Kristen Proby [ARC 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. Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I don’t know how to start reviewing All the Way by Kristen Proby. It’s not like the book was written horribly, it’s just so – meh. I feel like the whole story was just one note and it didn’t exactly endear me to both characters. All the Way begins a few months after the […]

Meh… Lazy Son by Eve Langlais [Book Review]

Meh… Lazy Son by Eve Langlais [Book Review]

  I picked up Lazy Son by Eve Langlais by chance when I saw the cover of the second book Jilted Prince, and thought that the blurb was interesting. I don’t exactly know what to say about Lazy Son because this was a bit of a mess? Crazysauce? The premise is this: Christopher is the antichrist and is the son of Lucifer but Lucifer doesn’t really know that this son exists because apparently Lucifer only has daughters? And then the heroine Isobel, is a witch that doesn’t really have powers but is the granddaughter or Rasputin? Yeah, THE Rasputin! But when […]

Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Meet Mary Sue & Gary Stu! The Hookup by Kristen Ashley [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I bought this audiobook because it was on sale for $1 or something when I got the free ebook on Amazon and I can’t believe I actually finished the whole book! No, I’m not saying that The Hookup is not good, it’s just that the main characters were a Mary Sue and Gary Stu! And I haven’t said this about any character ever! I mean, I’m all for a good girl and good boy characters but SO PERFECT? Really? Izzy, the SUPER Amazing WOMAN Here’s the deal, […]

Meh Reads [Skinny Reviews]

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 […]

What a Disappointing Series Ender! It’s Hard Out Here for a Duke by Maya Rodale [ARC Review]

What a Disappointing Series Ender! It’s Hard Out Here for a Duke by Maya Rodale [ARC 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.   Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. 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 […]
