Review: Follow Your Arrow

Follow Your Arrow Follow Your Arrow by A.M. Willard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Follow Your Arrow by A.M. Willard
This is a sweet second chance romance, set in a small-town community and has a smidgen of mystery thrown in. Filled with angst, the chick’s feelings are bitter, and hides from her feelings and Justin’s excuses are so lame.

Leslie and Justin still have a connection, he broke her heart and now he is back. They were childhood sweethearts, and he left to follow his dreams and left her behind. I neither loved it or hated it I think if you are looking for something a little sweet with annoying angst that makes you want to strangle both characters, by all means then this is a great one for that mood.

I found both characters to be a little bland and not for me, I couldn’t connect with either one of them. I find when this happens, you know you are going to struggle. The authors writing was solid, but again I think my taste in stories have change quite a lot. I enjoyed the mystery part of it, that what made me get to the end.

Overall, I was given this as an arc, I’m not sure if I would buy this for a friend or for myself. My rating is based on what I felt at the time.

Review: All I Want

All I Want All I Want by Megan Lowe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All I Want by Megan Lowe
Holy smokes, I was not expecting that. No seriously I haven’t got any fancy words to explain what I went through reading this story. I felt like at one stage maybe two that I was being sucker punched. At one stage I put the book down and walked away.

This is not your typical Megan story. It isn’t filed with rainbows and unicorns, it’s not like the other stories in the series. You can bet your bottom dollar that you will be in shock with Bishop and Jake! These two men are such beautiful souls, I really enjoyed reading about them. When I read the last story, I was like I bet this Bishop character is hiding something… and I called it when I was speaking to the author.

I knew deep down Bish was kind. I really like Jake and I understand why, he did what he did… but it hurt! I loved the writing, I love this series and I love all the BMX/Extreme Games world that Megan has created. I just love the whole family aspect of this series. Its one of the many reason why I enjoy them. Warning though, there is use of drugs, homophobic douches, heavy drinking and stupid decisions that will make you so mad! This story was a treat though, it’s a different side to the authors writing and she has done very well with showing us that she can write differently and can stamp her mark at writing a LGBT novel that impacts a punch.

The journey these two men take is beautiful, finding themselves, forgiving oneself and learning to love yourself. Healing is important in this story and we definitely watch Bishop do that. All I want reads fast and doesn’t hinder anywhere, I think you could read it as a standalone because you are given a great amount of background information that you would get lost in this world. I am excited for the next story/ies to come.
Overall rating 4 stars.

Review: Liberty

Liberty Liberty by Kirsty Dallas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Liberty by Kirsty Dallas
“Face your enemy, show no fear, fight to survive.”

This would have to be hands down 100% more intense and angsty then my favourite When Nothing Is All You’ve Got. Liberty is set in the future, about 7-8 years after the aftermath of the underworld prison escape, what happened in the book before this one. We meet Grace then and now she is an adult, and we meet a bunch of new characters who survived and living some what happy in the compound in the middle of nowhere.

Liberty is filled with romance, betrayal, drug use, rape. It is action packed and reads fast. You can read this one as a standalone, you will be forced to pace, sweat bullets, cry, become angry and fall in love with Ink and Grace. There story is epic, very compelling. I was very involved in what was happening and right from the beginning I was having heart palpitations. I love the way Kirsty writes in this crazy, scary dystopian world, in Liberty the compound has been overtaken by some mercenaries, who their leader is Jedediah and his sister., Who I fucken HATE! I can’t stand the pair of them, if there is a villain to hate, it is these two!

We go on this trip, watching and feeling the emotions of both our characters Grace and Ink, they have loved each other forever, but with a wee bit of an age gape, Ink pushed her away. I loved the bond and friendship/relationship they begin to have. That alone gets pushed to a test, so hang on to your knickers ladies and gents you are in for one hell of a ride!
Overall, I rate this one a 4.5 star.

Review: Song of Blood & Stone

Song of Blood & Stone Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This was an interesting story, but I didn't enjoy it. Star crossed lovers, honestly the beginning was so good, I really enjoyed it, I found it to be really captivating then the middle meh it was ok, but the last part I couldn't stand. I don't know what happened it was just awful. It could have had so much potential, the romance was there the two world and the mystery and characters... but it just fell apart for me.
