Book Review: Hunt By Alyssa Rose Ivy
Hunt (The Grizzly Brothers Chronicles Book 1) - Alyssa Rose Ivy

 

Painfully neutral is the only way I can describe how I feel about this book, which is beginning to become a theme with books by this author. I enjoy her writing style and the plot wasn't bad, but I still can't bring myself to love this book.

 

I very much enjoyed Mara as a character. I liked that she was headstrong, took everything into consideration and that she didn't jump into anything on a whim. Being in her head while she was questioning herself over Ian, for example, was very entertaining. I also liked that she didn't get on the mate bandwagon after a full two days of meeting Ian.

 

Ian was your basic shifter: possessive, arrogant and all around nice guy until you made him angry. I don't consider him anything special and I didn't necessarily dislike him, but he wasn't very memorable.

 

When things were finally picking up and getting interesting the book ended. I don't consider it a major OMG-I'll-Die-If-I-Don't-Know-What-Happens-Next cliffhanger because I wasn't really connected to the characters. I won't lose any sleep over it, is the conclusion I've come to. I will be picking up the next book just for the 'fun' of it when it gets released. I'd also like to mention that I would like to see a spin off of some kind for Ian's brothers and what happens when they get mated.

 

My Favorite Quotes:


"There is something soothing and healing about silent, dark nights."


"I didn't believe in luck; I believed in fate. It was both far more  dangerous and far more believable."


"Love can come in a lot of different packages."

Book Review: Lost (Allure Chronicles #3) By Alyssa Rose Ivy
Lost (The Allure Chronicles Book 3) - Alyssa Rose Ivy

 

* This review may contain spoilers for Books #0.5 - 2. 

 

This novel was surprisingly enjoyable when considering my opinions of the last few books in this series. I still did a lot of skimming, especially in the Owen chapters. They were so boring. It only started getting interesting after the Drago showed up, but by then I only had a few chapters left because the book was almost at it's end. There's also a cliffhanger thrown in for good measure. This one isn't as bad as the one in the second book, but it is still a cliffhanger.

 

I really liked the emotionless Daisy. She was a far more interesting and entertaining character that way. I liked how blunt and to the point she was. With the exception being thinking about Owen, because then she got so repetitive. I understand you lost your one true love, just don't remind me of all that you went through physically and emotionally every 5 pages.

 

I only remember Owen from the last few chapters because that's when the story fell into place. Before that it felt like one big filler. I would have been happy with a paragraph explaining what had happened with Owen and his group in the end, that way I would get more Daisy chapters.

 

I enjoyed Sol as a character. Even though the reader is barely introduced to him and 10 minutes later everything goes to hell. I wanted to know more about him and why he did what he did. I keep wondering what his true motivation was.

 

This was one of the better books in this series when you consider my love/hate relationship with it. I will be picking up the last book when it releases because I do want to know how this ends and I am a sucker for happily ever afters (which I hope is what the author is planning).

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"Sometimes in life the thing we want the most isn't what we're looking for."

 

"Doubting is negative. It means you've lost faith. But questioning is altogether different. It means you're thinking through a situation and making sure you agree with the steps being taken."

 

"Sometimes pain can borrow so deep inside a person that afterward they are no longer the person they were before."

Seduction's Kiss by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Seduction's Kiss (The Allure Chronicles) - Alyssa Rose Ivy
Description
 
*Prequel novella to Lure (The Allure Chronicles #1)*

Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire's nest mates
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.
 
My Review
 
 
Roommate road trips are not good as long as it dosen't turn into a car accident....I Wouldn't mind running into a vampire...with one thing on his mind...well make that two...actually me & blood...I have always wanted to be immortal...this book wasn't to bad...Seduction's Kiss...I would say a vampire's kiss is a very Seductive one...Will definitely be reading more...Thanks to the Author for writing what you do...it's definitely appreciated :)

About LIFE AFTER FALLING:

 

One tangled cassette tape. Two tangled lives.

 

Cassidy snaps. She quits her job and fiancé all in the same day and ends up on her parents’ doorstep. In the midst of everything she is determined to fix a broken cassette tape that she thinks holds the key to rediscovering happiness.

 

On her quest to fix the tape she meets Leo, a guy as down on his luck as she is lost. What starts with curiosity leads to something resembling a relationship and maybe a chance at love.  

 

 

Excerpt:

 

"Can I look?"

 

I gestured to the movie collection he had piled next to the massive TV.

 

"Sure."  He walked over to the kitchen counter and put down his keys, wallet, and phone. I liked that he put down his phone. It meant he was all there with me. I’d worked hard to break my own addiction to technology.

 

"Quite the collection." My eyes ran over the titles.

 

"I've picked up a few over the years."

 

"What's your favorite?" I kneeled down to see them better.

 

"You can't ask me that."

 

"Why not?" I raised an eyebrow.

 

"Because I don't have one favorite. Each category is different."

 

"But no overarching favorite?"

 

"Not for movies, but I do for music. Movies are like food while music is like women."

 

"Uh, do I want to know what that means?"

 

"Movies each have different purposes for me. Some make me laugh, some make me think. Some are entertainment. Like food. How can you compare a burger with a slice of cake? They serve different purposes.”

 

"Got it, but why is music like women?"

 

"Music has one purpose. To move someone. I can pick one favorite. The same goes for women. Who needs variety if you can find everything in just one?"

 

Words had never turned me on so much. "That's an interesting way to view things."

 

"It works."

 

I stood up. "But what if you never find one thing that has everything you need? Do you keep searching?”
