Review: The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

But why though?! That is what I keep asking myself over and over. :(

This book was beautifully written and so heart wrenching. I tried reading the last couple of chapters but my eyes were blurred from the tears. I absolutely fell in love with the characters in The Fault in Our Stars! I can not believe I waited so long to finally read this book, but now I must see the movie! To those who have not read this, please do so now.

"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

Review: Brie Lives Her Fantasy

Brie Lives Her Fantasy
Brie Lives Her Fantasy by Red Phoenix

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love these short stories; they always leave me wanting more and the book to be longer. Brie Lives Her Fantasy was HOT! It's auction day and Brie is auctioned off to one of Russia's highly respected Dom's, she does not know this though until afterwards. Rytsar fulfilled Brie's fantasy and was very imaginative! As always, Mary is a queen B, but also leaves out important information that causes her to get into trouble. I cannot wait to read the next book, highly recommend these books.

Review: Mystery Man

Mystery Man
Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I thought I was never going to finish this book! My kindle messed up right after starting this and I counted down the days until I received my new one to finish reading this. First off, this book was AMAZING! This book had so many hot, possessive men mmm mmm mmm!

“I felt a warm hand on the skin of my lower back.”
I twisted my neck, looked up and there he was.
I held my breath and he asked, “You comin’ or what?”
That was it. That was his pickup line. “You comin’ or what?”
I went.”

Gwen has been having a booty call with a man she knows nothing about for over a year. He sneaks into her house unexpectedly and after they are done, he disappears. What she does not know is, is that he has been monitoring her ever since he laid eyes on her. Gwen’s sister ends up getting into a big mess and owes a ton of money to “bad” people causing Gwen to be threatened. After confronting a biker gang to find her sister, and meeting Tack (hottie) her mystery man comes into the picture and becomes possessive. Lawson the police chief (also hottie) then interrogates her. At this time, I am jealous of all the hot men surrounding her.

Hawk AKA mystery man is the definition of Alpha Male. He is the leader of his commando’s, ex Army man, did I mention possessive, dimples, and totally swoon worthy! Gwen is a book editor, Cosmo sipping, cookie dough eater who LOVES shoes. She is independent and a smartass. I loved these two characters, although Hawk sometimes would irritate me in some parts of the book. I mean who puts camera’s in someone’s house and tracks their car?!

“You're in deep with me, aren't you, baby?"
I whispered my question just to confirm.
"Drowning." he whispered back.”

I highly recommend this book to those who want to enjoy a funny but sexy read.

Review: Lover Awakened

Lover Awakened
Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great story!! Out of the series, so far this has to be my favorite! I could not stand Z before in the other books, but in Lover Awakened, everything just changed! He is probably one of my favorite Brothers now. The story between him and Bella is so sad and heart wrenching, but I am glad we finally got to learn about his past.

There were definitely moments in the book where I just wanted to reach out and shake Zsadist. As the story went along though, he kept getting better and better. Bella showed a great amount of patience and helped him open up and just let go.

I do hate a part in the book though; I am disappointed that one of the characters ends up dying. I seriously cried during that part. However, I cannot wait to read the rest of the series and find out what is to come.

“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened.”

If you have not read this series yet, I highly recommend it! They just keep getting better & better.

Review: Storm Warning (Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense #179)

Storm Warning (Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense #179)
Storm Warning (Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense #179) by Linda Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nori Edwards decides to start her life over by moving to Maine and redoing cabins. She has lost her husband and grief has caused Nori to lose faith in God, but her two daughter's never lost that faith and are away and a Christian Camp. Here she meets Steve, who also has his own battles. The two end up getting close, especially since he is working on the cabin. Things start to get weird when Nori's windows would be open, the doors would be unlocked, an the "ghost" tale is swarming with the locals.

This was a wonderful quick read that I enjoyed. I am certain that I have never read Love Inspired books, but decided to give this a try. This is the kind of book you read, and at the end you just have a overall good feeling. Lately, I am in the mood to become intune with Faith and this book was just what I needed.
