Gone Girl

19288043

 

BOOK:  Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

 MY RATING FOR IT: 4 stars

SYNOPSIS

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

 

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Ok, ok ok!!!! I know, I’m soooooo late with a review with this book that is really old by now, but what can I say??? I just wasn’t in to it … at first.

I had these book since 2015 and just read it like 2 months ago ( shame on me , I know) it was one of those books that you start reading and go , mmm yeah it’s not for me … buuuuuuut … it just so happens that it was so GOOD!!!!!

It was my first non romance book in ages ( it was my first book at all in ages !! ) I was kind of in a rut and was trying to find the fun in reading again, so I decided to give a go at some of the old book in my IPad, and this one was the first one in the list… it was good choice!!!

I never saw the movie so I had no preconceived notions of what the story was about, which was a big plus I guess.

The story is about married couple, Nick and Amy Dunne. They are supposed to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on that night but Nick realizes that Amy has gone missing And there seems to have been a struggle in their Livingroom and things don’t look too promising for Amy. Also big detail the #1 suspect appears to be Nick.

The story is told some chapters in Nick’s POV (present day), and Amy’s POV is told thru some r journal entries, that seemed to be from a previous time starting at the time they got to know each other and started dating.

I can’t say much without getting in to the plot and ruining it for you (if you are the last person on earth besides me that has not read it yet) but I just have to tell you that this is one FUCKED UP GROUP OF PEOPLE!!! Some are slightly more likable and human at times, but very flawed none the less.

This book was kind of slow at first and that was the main reason why it took me soooo long to get in the mood to read it , but once I got the flow going it got good quick and it really picked up the pace with one twist after the next , and one mystery after another , which  made me want to read it more and more, it was so entertaining , I was literally  consumed by this book at one point  and it was a great reminder of what books make you feel when you engage with a good story.

I did finished it, and it was with a sense of dread for the human race( jah) , and a bit of a sour taste in my mouth with the finishing part,  but overall it was an excellent read and even though not 100%  within the type of book I normally read it at least it made me reconsider the wonderful array of story’s I have yet to read … so I think I’m back to the book this year.

Only Trick by Jewel E. Ann

BOOK:  Only Trick by Jewel E. Ann

MY RATING FOR IT: 4 stars

SYNOPSIS

“Don’t Look Back in Anger”

In one night, I lost five years of my life. Here’s what I know …
I was homeless.
I’m a recovering drug addict.
My inked skin crawls from lustful eyes.
I have a serious aversion to women.
My gay partner is a home wrecker.
I own a gun and I’m a damn good shot.
I’m a makeup artist, but it’s an insult to my talent.
I’ve never wanted to possess anything except my Ducati … until I met Darby.
Now here’s what I know since that day in the ER when she pieced me back together … nothing—but a few random thoughts.
My new “friend” is distracting, clingy, and obsessed with acronyms, emojis, and phrases like “breakfast soul mates.”
I didn’t want to like her, but she crawled under my skin and swallowed me whole. Now we’re best friends and she’s my new addiction. I’d drink her from a shot glass, snort her up my nose, or inject her into my veins if I could. What I won’t do … is ever tell her that.
She doesn’t know me … I don’t know me. When those missing years come back, I think she will hate me … I think I will hate me.
My parents named me Patrick Roth, and this is my story.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

 Very sweet and sexy book, trick a makeup artist (a guy makeup artist) befriends Darby a shy medical assistant who definitely notices al off tricks attributes!!

He’s a wonderful makeup artist, he’s very secretive and he’s a really hot hot guy, that is unattainable cause of his sexual preferences and because he obviously has a deep dislike for the opposite sex , so whats not to like !

This story of friendship, love, lost and second chances, was a fun one to read , the love story was very sweet , it did felt  fast at the beginning , it got a bit more developed in the middle part and the end was very rushed a little to picture perfect for me,<<cause the explanation given to trick of what happened to his parent felt a little week , I mean i would have wanted to know why they lefts me to fend for myself>>

The big reveal was not as terrible as I thought it could be, I guess I have an overactive imagination…

But it was a very nice book, it was very easy to get in to it, and trick was a very delectable character Darby was a bit iffy to me, she was supposed to be really shy, but sometimes she was very forthcoming, she felt all over the place at times, and to tell you the truth I’m not down with the so called, nerdy ugly girls that suddenly get all their acne cleared and under the clothes have goddess body all of a sudden!! That kind of puts me off a little.

Buuuuuut the story was really super sweet and trick was amazing, I really like him.

Well this was a very worthy read that’s for sure, i wouldn’t mind finding me a tatted hunky guy who could do wonder with my make up!!

Degradation, Separation, Reparation and Completion (the Kane trilogy)

BOOK: Degradation, Separation, Reparation and Completion (the Kane trilogy) by stylo Fantome

MY RATING FOR IT: 5 stars

SYNOPSIS

Eighteen year old Tatum O’Shea is a naive, shy, little rich girl. Twenty-three year old Jameson Kane is smart, seductive, and richer. They come together for one night, one explosion, one mistake, and Tate is hurled into space – no family, no money, and no Jameson.

Seven years later, life is going pretty good for Tate, when she runs into Jameson again. This time, she thinks she’s ready for him. She doesn’t have a naive bone left in her body, and she can’t even remember what shy feels like. Jameson has evolved, as well – sharp words, sharper wit, and a tongue that can cut her in half. It all sounds like fun to a woman like Tate, and she is ready to play, determined to prove that she isn’t the same girl he conquered once before. A series of games start, each one more devious than the last.

But as the line between games and reality becomes blurry, Tate quickly learns that Jameson has most definitely earned his nickname, “Satan”. Can she beat him at his own game before someone gets hurt? Or will he leave her soulless, making him the winner, once and for all?

WARNING: contains a wannabe B-rate porn star, an impersonal personal assistant, and the F-word, A LOT. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

This Series had such a buzz, had been hearing about it forever, so I decided to just go for it and thank god for that cause WOWZA!! This was one of the hottest relationships in years!! Oh dear lord Jameson Kane is my lord and Master forever, I just swoon for that sharp sarcastic nasty tongue of his!! (Is it wrong of me to say that???… pfff who cares ) I just dream of character s like this , this are my true alpha males , unapologetic , so sarcastic and funny but in control all the time!!! Uffff ….

“Because, I have the strangest feelings about you. Like I want to take you everywhere and have you by my side, but I also want to hold you down. Make you beg and cry,”

And Tatum, damn, she is one tough broad!! Her stupid family disowned her and she became a strong independent, slightly unhinged, very lovable woman, she is very secure in her believes and very in to having fun and experimenting with her body and sex , cause she really likes sex,

“It was strange – she didn’t really mind being someone’s whore, but she hated the thought of being someone’s dirty secret.”

They have an encounter seven years before that change their life’s in more ways than one , and they see each other again after all that time, a game is about to begin and nothing will be the same.

 

They can’t stay away from each other they become obsessed with the sex they are having and with the thought of out winning the other, but things as they always do, Tend to get more complicated as time passes  and people get more and more involved.

They are so different and the same in so many things , He is really mean to her sometimes , but things do change after a while and the back and for the tends to be more balance between the 2 of them.

They are so passionate as a couple, is fireworks, and aggression and no boundaries between them, and Tate loves it like that, Jameson can finally be the man that he really is with her, and that is exhilarating to him .

“You have ruined me, Tatum O’Shea,” he told her. “Completely wrecked me.” Her breath caught in her throat. “It’s only fair, you did it to me first,” she whispered.”

He calls her every name in the book and more, but Tate loves it!!!

Their relationship may upset some people and may not be everyone’s cup of tea , but is all consensual and upfront so I have no problem about it.

This series of  books where  so above and beyond what I thought it would be! I’m in shock of how is it that I didn’t read it before

This series made me go thru all the feelings available in my poor self … at points I wanted to smack Jameson for being so stubborn and blind (and lick him too most of the time) and some other times I really wanted to choke Tate for being so pig headed, the only one I loves all the threw was dear amazing Sandy!!! (Looooooooove him till forever)

I also have a small part of my heart to Angy… he was kind of awesome too.

I don’t want to spoil this amazing series for you, but you really need to have this in your repertoire , cause its AMAZING !!! I have no more word ….

“Tatum Elliot O’Shea, sometimes I think you are the stupidest goddamn person I have ever met. Sometimes I think you’re crazy. Sometimes I think I hate you. Sometimes I think you’re a psychotic bitch, sent from hell to drag me back. But always, ALWAYS, I think you are the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

The Scene (Bad Boy Billionaire #1, 2, 3)

 

BOOK:  The Scene (Bad Boy Billionaire #1, 2, 3)

MY RATING FOR IT: 3 1/2 stars

SYNOPSIS:

Miami. The city of sex, sin — and secrets.

I came here with one mission: solve the mystery behind my brother’s death.
Somebody’s got answers.
Somewhere, I’ll find what I’m looking for.

I didn’t bet on Xavier. He’s my way into the scene — and my biggest threat.
I should keep my distance, but I can’t stay away.

I’m playing with fire, and I just pray I don’t get burned.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Well , I knew this was a series , so I also knew about the possibility of  cliffhangers , and when it came it did with  no surprise , what did surprise me though was how fast I wanted to keep reading and find more about this story !! And YES! the billionaire bad boy angle is been uses and recycled a million times over , I know !!! but what I liked about this one was the Thriller part of it , it made it seem like there was a bit more of a story there.
The sex scenes are descriptive in this first one  and steamy as they always are, not particularly clever (i did felt like they sounded like a million other scenes) but they worked for the story.
All in all it got me hooked and I want to read the next one, and that’s the point of a series?
And …Well I finished it, and it was kind of good , it kept me interested , the story had some thrills in it , but nothing to big .
The overall  sex scenes are a bit disappointing  , mmm they had some meat  to it , but they felt old , like you had seen them before , there was nothing new to it … I guess after so many books it’s hard to find really scorching , make you tingle kind of scenes anymore ( there are exceptions of course !!).
The ending kind of sucked though, it was rushed, and very uneventful, which was kind of turn off actually.
I did like it, it was a fast read, good enough for an afternoon with nothing to do.

Priest (Priest #1)by Sierra Simone

image

BOOK: Priest

MY RATING FOR IT: 5 stars

SYNOPSIS

There are many rules a priest can’t break.
A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God.

I’ve always been good at following rules.
Until she came.
My name is Tyler Anselm Bell. I’m twenty-nine years old. Six months ago, I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church, and God help me, I would do it again.
I am a priest and this is my confession.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

 There are some books, old and new which are very hard for me to review, hence I haven’t yet. They are probably my favorite ones but because of that my brain gets an overload of thoughts and feelings every time I try to convey what they make me feel, then I get  frustrated and I can’t explain clear enough how much they have affected me o how much they are staying with me forever.

This Month I am making the effort to change that and I’m going to try and post the reviews of those very books , the ones I love so much that the words get tangled in my brain trying to explain the feelings that I get reading them.

In that note I will start with a book that was a bit of a shock as much as a turn on to me and this one is Priest by Sierra Simone.

Priest is book that is first and foremost beautifully written, melodic and poetic at times, that was the first feeling that I got and the first surprise for me, I was expecting something way different, I don’t know why I just thought it was going to be the typical smutty grittier story with some cheap taboo in it, and no developing story, I was so wrong.

 

“Whatever happens after this, I just want you to know that this was worth it. You were worth it. You were worth everything.”

I knew this book was going to be taboo and I knew it was going to be hot and a bit dirty, but I  had no idea that it was going to be  filthy in the best way(some scenes are clearly a bit much for the shock value)   and oh! so steamy , I can’t even tell you !! And a love story that was just wonderful to read and so engaging, I just know I’m going to obsess over this book for a while.

“if this was what love was, then I didn’t know how anyone could bear the weight of it.”

Let me tell you, first that I was raised Catholic, first communion, catechism classes and all that. With the years and the current events that have developed in the Catholic church in the last 20 years my church going days have been less and less, but I still am a spiritual person, I believe in a higher power that looks upon us and I always have feel that the priesthood should be dealt in a different way, celibacy is not natural to me and should not be impose on anyone, maybe that’s why this topic didn’t bother me so much in this book  it seemed to shine a light in something that is an ever present thought about priesthood ,cause aren’t they men after all ?? Don’t they deserve love, not just from their god but form a partner too?? And we all  have the same normal biological and mental urges.

15199229

There are scenes in this book that to me represent so well the communion between the love for your God and that earthly love for your partner, your other half, that urge for connection that all humans have and those hidden desires that just need the right person to be awaken… cause they are in all of us .

“God dwelled in sex and marriage just as much as He dwelled in celibacy and service,”

It didn’t felt dirty or wrong if felt like real love,maube a bit hightrned by the circumstances , and  a love story that developed under strained circumstances, (This is all my thoughts about that topic I understand if you don’t feel the same way)

“Was it truly so terrible for a man of God to have sex? The Protestants had been doing it for half a millennium and they seemed no more hell-bound than the Catholics for it. And was it so wrong to want both? I wanted to lead this church, I wanted to help people find God. But dammit, I wanted Poppy too, and I didn’t think it was fair that I had to choose.”

Love like that shouldn’t be a burden or sin under anyone’s eyes and our characters know this they can’t help it, they can’t avoid it, and it’s too strong for them, something that feels so right and make you that elated shouldn’t be a bad thing right ??

15199230

That’s the problem because Father Bell is confuse, his vows tell him to stay away from temptation, but Poppy feels like the right thing for him, he can’t find the balance between his vocation, his will to help the people in his parish and the ardent feelings and tender love that he’s developing for this woman that is looking for a new truth to her life, a new path.

It’s not even just lust it’s so much more its love in its purest form he wants to be with her all of her , the good the bad and just be one with her and share his love of god with her too, show her the wonders of that light.

“I thought, this is what it’s like to be torn apart for love. This is what it means to be reborn.”

To say that this book had some hot scenes is not enough, cause they were sizzling, I mean if the Taboo and forbidden is your thing, dam!! Ufff yeah!!

Am I wrong to like this so much?? Am I a little twisted for liking these subjects Maybe?

Well, if that’s the case Sierra Simone has made me a willing sinner, and this is erotica so it will be hot as hell!!! And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

“My little lamb,” I whispered. “You are so very, very wet right now.”

I consider myself very open minded, but I did struggle a little with some moments, reading some really hot scenes where I wonder and thought about how fucking bad this was , and  that this was really so sinful and decadent but it was so good  it gave me goosebumps at times!!

I can understand how this book might not be everyone’s taste, but it’s a good one, a really good one at least for me, it has everything that I need in a great read, everything and then some, I felt goosebumps as I was experiencing the story, I could tell that this one was one that would stick with me for a long loooooong time.

“Whatever happens after this, I just want you to know that this was worth it. You were worth it. You were worth everything.”

Crude: A Stepbrother Romance by Aubrey Irons

Crude

BOOK:  Crude: A Stepbrother Romance

MY RATING FOR IT: 2 ½  stars

SYNOPSIS:

Knox Shepherd is a total d**k. A really, really big one.
He’s a swaggering, cocky prick who blows through women the same way he roars around town on that motorcycle of his – fast.

Sure, I wasn’t supposed to be sneaking out to bars or singing at open mics, but that didn’t give him a right to talk to me like that. No one’s ever said those things to me before – filthy, raunchy, crude suggestions that made me literally run for the door. Suggestions I wish didn’t make me feel so funny inside.

But hey, no big deal, right? It’s not like I’d ever have to see that smug, foul-mouthed jerk ever again.

If only he weren’t standing with that cocky smirk on my front porch right now, right next to my father’s new fiancé. His mother.

Yeah, that unbearable prick is going to be my new stepbrother.

OK, he’s gorgeous, and every time he looks at me I can practically hear him whisper deliciously dirty things in my ear. And maybe something about his cocky swagger makes me think I should break some rules for once.

…Maybe something about him makes me not so sure I want to go to college still holding on to my V-card.

But I definitely don’t want to lose it to my stepbrother. Ew.

So why can’t I stop thinking about it?

 MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I always have time for a good stepbrothers love affair, I find them to be so hot , that I always jump to the idea of a new good one , but the truth is , that there are just to many of this books that are so so or just plain old bad ones … so I guess that’s why it took me a while to get around this book , it just didn’t do it for me I guess ?!! There’s nothing bad about it , it just didn’t get my complete attention , but today as I was reading it , I kind of liked it… It was a sweet little story with some bits of steam to it … so not a bad read after all , not an amazing one either ,but good for an afternoon with nothing to do.
The Characters are a little bland, and the main guy is not as steamy as I thought should be, but he was engaging enough.
The bad thing was that the story felt too old nothing new to add, and the girl was to Mehh !! If anything I was totally rooting for him in this book.
The ending was super-fast and suddenly he was everything that he said he wasn’t all the book long ?? … huuuu ok i guess??
so that why I kind of wanted to like it but just felt short.

This is the story of how he came to be and this is why so many love Mason Kade

Maybe change is a good thing.

18234003

Sam’s other main dilemma? Keeping Mason and Logan from getting arrested or hospitalized.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

First of let me start by saying how much I love this series …. I just LOOOOOOVE IT, I JUST DO SO MUCH.

Well I actually love Tijan and she can do no wrong, I can’t get over how much I enjoy her book and her characters.

And the reason why I haven’t reviewed this series of books is exactly because of it , I like it too much to put in to words … nut I’ll try because this books deserve to be read ,they are so much fun and so much more than just school angst and drama

This is a series that I bought on discount in a special edition with 4 books in one (including the prequel Mason)

It was super cheap (I did bought it some time ago , and I have read it like 6 times) and I had no clue what I was getting myself in to , I was sure was going to be some high school teen boring  drama (which it kind of is , but so much more) but I found myself totally sucked in to the lidfe of this privilege but very neglected young people and all the turmoil’s that they had to endure and overcome.

They are cool, rich, powerful and full of energy and each character brings something fun to the table.

The first book “Mason” is a book told in Mason point of view, here we can see how secretive he is and how his strong and fierce personality gets shape and why he’s is so protective of his and his brother Logan life and environment.

mASON

Super Hot Mason

We get to see how their parents and role models constantly lets them down and they learn to fence for themselves and to trust no one besides their closest ones (Mason-Logan-Nate)

From the get go I could tell Mason was going to be a swoon worthy character.

In the second Book “ Fallen Crest High “ we are introduced to Samantha and her screw up Family of Annalise the bitch and David the wimp,

Her parents are separating because Analise is cheating on her husband with a Rich man, and Sam’s world unravels when she sees herself moved from her home and away from her dad, to live in a mansion with the 2 most popular guys in Fallen Crest, Mason and Logan Kade both of them god on the football field and off it.

LOGAN

My Logan !!

The relationship is strained at first, Sam wants nothing to do with the Kade Brothers and prefers to remain in anonymity, her life is already hard enough as it is (with her friends dumping her and her boyfriend cheating on her), but they are put in different situations that make them realize that they are more similar than what they expect and they start to like and include Sam in their antics.

An incredible attraction start to build between Mason and Sam, and it’s something neither of them is able or whiling to understand, its bigger than anything they ever felt before and it grows all thru out the books (it’s super-hot)

Logan and Mason are great characters, they are full very developed characters, they appeal to inner teen 100%.

The sporting character are very important in all this books, some come and go , but as the story develops their sides are clearer.

The Third book “Fallen Crest Family” shows  a more solid Mason and Sam , they are dealing with their problems , but they are together and their family dynamics are the front and center plot line in this one , especially bat shit crazy Analise  and the repercussions of her relationship with Sam … oh dear god that woman is unbelievable !!!

 

Sam

Sam

The last book in this bundle (not the last book of the series !!! ) is “Fallen crest Public” , and I have to say that it’s been one of my favorites till date , it has everything that I like in high school dramas , love hotness catty girls , more drama and revenge !!! yuju …… loved it .

We see some pretty powerful character’s in this one the Public school girls are not like the ones Sam’s use to fight in private school, they don’t care about designer clothes or who’s daddy has more money, they want the hottest guys and school power and they are going to do whatever it takes to get the Kades on their side again, they are beautiful and vicious and they make Sam’s life Hell

This books reminded me why I liked High school story’s so much they are my guilty pleasure for as long as I remember and I don’t know why I left them for so long , and Tijan just has a special skill to develop flawed , sexy intriguing swoon wordy character’s, and she gets me every time.

Well I think that pretty much sums up the story, there’s fallen Fourth Down and Fallen crest University,  without counting The Logan spin off , that I’m dying to read , but those will be review on a later day

Love Unscripted (Love #1) by Tina Reber

LOVE UNSCRIPTED

BOOK:  Love Unscripted

MY RATING FOR IT: 3 ½ stars

SYNOPSIS

An A-List Movie Star…
Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine a life where fans would chase him, paparazzi would stalk him, and Hollywood studios would want to own him. While filming in Seaport, Rhode Island, Ryan ducks into a neighborhood bar for a quick escape from legions of screaming fans…and finds much more than he expected.

A Small Town Girl…
Nursing a recent heartbreak, Taryn Mitchell believes men are best kept at a safe distance. But when Ryan Christensen unexpectedly bursts through the front door of her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in by his humor, charm, and undeniable good looks. At six foot two, with dirty blond hair, blue eyes, and an incredible body, Ryan has every girl in Seaport swooning. But Taryn isn’t every other girl.

A Relationship that Doesn’t Follow the Script…
Despite her better judgment, Taryn soon finds herself falling hard for Ryan. But is their bond strong enough to survive the tabloid headlines, the relentless paparazzi, and the jealous fans who seem determined to tear them apart?

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

3 1/2 STARS FOR THIS MOVIE STAR /NORMAL GIRL LOVE STORY
It was a really good book , the story of Taryn and Ryan , was very well developed , the sweet moments where there and a lot of angst too… a LOT !! A little low on the steam factor, I never ever felt that was part of the story, Luke warm scenes at most, sometime Taryn seemed a little too prim and proper.
If there’s anything that bother me a little was just how long it felt sometimes, I can understand how the author may wanted to show the complete parts of a growing relationship , the mundane included , and I like that approach, It’s a good way to engage the reader , but some of the chapters felt too long for my liking (sometimes I had to take brakes and read something else) and some characters seemed to cartoony , like the obsessed fan and the depiction of her as super crazy , ugly and deranged … It felt weird at times a bit too I don’t know false?? It was made to look like the main character was all angelical and amazing and the fans where ugly destructive horrible persons.

I guess some chapters made it a challenge to keep going but I did and I’m glad that I did, because the story is a good one , It’s a lot more real than the norm in romance books , and with a lot less fluff!! (Not that there’s anything wrong with a little fluff)
GOOD ENOUGH BOOK, A LITTLE TOO LONG, BUT ENGAGING ENOUGH WITH THE OVER 600 PAGES OF IT.
I’m intrigued enough that I most likely will go for the next book of the series.

She only hoped she wouldn’t lose her humanity at the cost of fulfilling the Immortal Prophec

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

 I had this book for ages, and it just didn’t call to me, who knows why, because to me Tijan can do no wrong!! I just looove her books, but for some reason I was just bypassing this one.

So I decided on giving this girl a try, aaaaannnndddd …. Of course I was hooked!!!

Do take in consideration that this is sooooo much different than the other books; Davy is a different character, strong as all girls in Tijans worlds, but with a different essence to her.

At first I couldn’t decide if I liked the book or if I reaaaally liked the book; it was undecided till the second book which I just inhale!

Roane on the other hand, I loved him from the get go, I just knew I had a new boyfriend on the making!! (He did not disappoint)

Davy felt a little cold and stiff at times, except whit Lucas, those scenes were hot and beautiful and that make me keep going, which was good, because I really like the second part.

I don’t like to spoil book so I don’t want to tell too much about the plot, but let me tell you Davy  has to overcome many changes in her not so normal life , being an empath not even the worst of it , cause a random encounter with a strange girl leaves her with more than just regrets and doubts , and now people are trying to get to her and get her.

This is Tijan before Fallen Crest and the Kade brothers , which you can tell , and it’s a good thing I think , because you can see the range is bigger than just High school bigger than life boy/men story’s, I mean this is paranormal , and it’s not easy to do good paranormal ok ?? So give her some slack!!

The third book Davina was really good full of adventures, at times it felt really long but it was a good read.

My only problem was the ending , because it felt super rushed to me and left me wanting so much more for some characters , I don’t know if it was on propose to do another book ??

There are so many loose ends to me?? Some mayor characters didn’t get any kind of resolution?? I was like what the hell??

We’ll have to wait and see I guess …. L

Anyhow I think this series does need to be recognized and read, because it’s really entertaining and has a mayor hotty in it , I mean he’s HOT !! And super cold/sweet, it makes me melt.

So give it a try , I’m sure you’ll like it ….
