Review: Serpent & Dove

Serpent & Dove Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

2.5 -3 Stars. Y’all can throw rocks at me! I just didn’t like it. I read it from start to finish, and I just didn’t get it it. The romance was ok, it was definitely enemies to lovers, but it wasn’t that I didn’t care for. I still don’t know what it is. I Don’t mind that troupe as one of my most favorite trilogy’s started out as enemies to lovers... The kingmaker chronicles.
It wasn’t awful, I would definitely tell ppl
To read this book, it’s definitely A mature ya, With mature scenes. I was lead to believe this was more New adult, or close to adults. But I was mistaken. The audio is good, if it wasn’t for that I probably would have DNF it, if I were to be reading it with my eyeballs. Ahh I think the magic was pretty cool, witches are obviously always cool to read about.

Review: Till Death

Till Death Till Death by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, wow, wow. all I knew before going into this one was that the cover was stunning and that it wasa romatic thriller, and it was defently that. I at one point thought ah ha! that is the killer but then I was throwen of course, and was lead to believe it was one person after another i lovedreading this story, i loved the anticiation of teying to figure outwhat was going to happen next, and that there was second chance romance involved too, was icing on the cake. I really love the authors writing, though I should have known i was going to enjoy it, as i have enjoyed previous works of jennifer arnmentrout .

Review: Tribute

Tribute Tribute by Nora Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Just wow. I am in awe with this story. Heading into this one I wasn’t 100% sure I was going to enjoy it, but some where along the lines I did. I feel in love with the characters, the setting, Nora can write emotions so well. I wasn’t expecting to feel all the feels at some stages. I loved the unfolding mystery of her late grandmother. I loved the whole flipping the house but the romance, Ford! He was so darn adorable and he won me over with he dialogue. I am seriously becoming a hardcore fan of Nora Roberts. This book Is a 5/5 stars.

AWK-WEIRD by Avery Flynn




AWK-WEIRD
Ice Knights #2
By Avery Flynn
Release Day: October 14 (TODAY)

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.

So, when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie's wedding rehearsal party ... You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the face that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that's pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me. 

There's zero chance I'll end up ever seeing him again...right? 

Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?

Oh my God, I wish I knew...

MY REVIEW
This was weird, like I had so many high expectations to love this, but I unfortunately didn't. I thought it was adorably awkward and slightly cute. I found the main couple immature and annoying most of the times, I can see the appeal to others though, I can see why its potential for other readers to enjoy and love, it is though a continuation of her other series. Well I thought it was, as the main chick is bff with the girls from Butterface, Muffintop and Tomboy. This is not my first Avery book, and it probably wont be my last, they are fun easy, some what angst/drama (ish) rom/coms. Tess and Coles story is very boy meets girl at said wedding they bang, she gets knocked up and then they fall in love, with a hell of a lot of miscommunication, they breakup well not really they are really ever together just boning. "Temporarily" I liked it overall 3 stars.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang









The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

Probably one of the most anticipated reads for a lot of fans, and this also has some major hype surrounding the book, So that alone going into this one had my expectations pretty damn high. But in saying that, I only gave TKQ 4 stars.
-
The Bride Test was deferentially interesting, very unique and I see why so many loved this book, unfortunately for me I did not. Not because the writing was poor, I honestly did not care for the characters much, and the setting or not like the idea of  it maybe I am still unsure how to put my words in order but I did not hate the book, I just didn't gel with it.
 For me was OK.

This was a own voices novel, the main character or the dude main character is Autistic and this author does do a great job showing how he expresses his feelings and such.

Khai, is Michael's cousin from the first book. Esme is from Vietnam and cleans for a living, while living with her baby daughter and mother and grandmother. Khai's mother, travels there to try and find him a wife... obviously she stumbles upon Esme and there is a propersition and the story goes from there.

I found myself enjoying most of all the Khai moments, and him learning about sex,and how to pleasure a lady, I loved his brother and I hope he gets a book.

The whole time I was literally questioning Emse  and her feelings and that she dose not tell ANYONE about her daughter is messed up. I am a mum, so this struck a cord with me. don't be ashamed or whatever, I didn't like that at all and when she did tell, it wasn't even till really at the end of the book and she had no choice really to let anyone know. I dunno I didn't like that at all, and then like if you were away from your baby, you would be thinking and wanting and talking to her girl all the time or more then what was shown in this story. Because of this and another part where she was considering to hook up with the brother, didn't go so well with me. Then towards the end, like always with books like this the 70-80% of push and pull will I or wont I bullshit, the I don't love her, or I cant and I don't understand love. YOU PUT YOUR DICK IN HER.... Like a lot and you don't know how you feel.. but you can feel and like really enjoy sex .... anyways lets move on!

I thought it was impressive with the character coming to a new country and learning how to stand on her own, learning a new language and wanting a better life for herself and family. I can relate to that in some capacity, as I was young girl to move to a new country and start all over again, knowing my own parents wanted a better life for themselves and my brother and I. 

I did really enjoy the audio, if it was not for that I think I could have possibly given up my paperback. I gave this a 3 stars overall.
