I didn’t really know what to think of this book. It started out really slow and although I love paranormal stuff, this story didn’t seem to sell very well at first. It came off as a little cheesy and cliche in some spots, but as the story started to pick up I actually found myself enjoying it. I almost gave up a couple times, but after like page 150 or so it finally gets interesting.   In the beginning Zara […]

My first thought upon finishing this book: Ahhhhhhhh. I love happy endings, and I especially love books that leave no loose ends.    There’s trouble in paradise when Lily’s squid-brain cousin, Dosinia, shows up to live with her and learn the ways of humans. Things soon get knee-deep as said cousin takes an instant liking to Lily’s ex-crush. In an ironic twist of fate, Lily makes an unexpected trip home to visit.   I must say I admire Lily for […]

While I hate chick flicks, I adore Disney movies. And this book is definitely Disney material. It’s like the Little Mermaid meets the Ugly Truth (if you haven’t seen it, you should watch it).   Lily has been “in love” – and I quote because it’s really more of obsession – with Brody for 3 years. They have a passing conversation here and there but for the most part he doesn’t really notice her. Her arrogant neighbor, Quince, decides to […]

After reading Bloodlust, this book seemed rather mundane. I wasn’t wowed by Childs’ prose, but I do admit there weren’t really many spots in this book that I got bored. This book was simple and mindless with not much thought required…but sometimes it’s nice for a quick and easy read. I really like the thought behind the story in this one…triplets separated at birth (with mythological powers) stumble upon each other unexpectedly…kind of like Parent Trap with a twist.  I […]

Man, this book was intense. Rowen outdid herself in this one. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read…from shock to anger to despair, I felt like I was right there with Jill at every turn. Rowen really injected you as a reader into the story in a way that surpassed the first book. There were so many times I was engrossed in this book, reading open-mouthed in awe (and exclaiming “oh shit!” out loud).    Declan’s mood swings (caused […]

I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I laid eyes on it, so I had pretty high expectations. And thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. It certainly wasn’t a slow start (which appealed to me, because I get bored easily), with Jill getting stabbed with a syringe and injected with Nightshade, vampire poison. I loved the development between Jill and and her kidnapper, Dec…the way it turns into Stockholm Syndrome also appeals to me because I really like romances […]
