I Want It That Way
I Want It That Way - Ann Aguirre

Nadia is a junior majoring in special education. She and 3 of her friends rent an apartment off campus. A single dad lives right below them. His name is Ty.
I liked both Nadia and Ty. They each get to know each other slowly over evening on his patio and her deck above him. It graduates to friends with benefits. And you know where it then goes. I thought this was realistic in it's portrayal of college going adults who are serious about their studies (and the balance that happens with school, work, friendship). My only issue was it was slow at times and time-wise it would jump forward a week or 2.
I have no interest in reading Lauren's story.
I read this for Romance-opoly New View moon track

Can't wait for this pre-order (out Tuesday)
Honor Lost - Rachel Caine,Ann Aguirre

I've had this preordered for what seems like forever (okay actually about a year).



The last two in the series just blew me away. 



Not that I wrote good reviews of them; just fired all cylinders for what I want in a good read and a science fiction book in a way I haven't seen in a long time.



Sometimes the 5-star books are the hardest to review.

Review of "Honor Bound" (The Honors, #2) by Ann Aguirre and Rachel Caine
Honor Bound - Ann Aguirre,Rachel Caine

This reader's personal opinion, ©2019, all rights reserved, not to be quoted, clipped or used in any way by goodreads, Google Play, amazon.com or other commercial booksellers* 


This was just ... great science fiction, great worldbuilding, great characters, great story, incredibly interesting aliens ... 


Gush, gush, gush ...


Ever have one of those books that it's very hard to review because it was pretty perfect?  I had preordered this because fell in love with the first book in series and it did not disappoint (or read like a collaboration).


It's also hard to review without spoilers as more of the politics and aliens and history and worldbuilding is revealed as story unfolds.  Some new and some just surprising at how deep some things went.  Very little purely good or evil.  Doesn't end on a cliffhanger but clearly more is ahead.


Boy is this a suck-y review -- but this series is really getting good.

Ratings scale used in absence of a booklikes suggested rating scale:

★★★★★ = All Time Favorite 
★★★★½ = Extraordinary Book. Really Loved It.
★★★★☆ = Loved It.
★★★½☆ = Really Liked.
★★★☆☆ = Liked.
★★½☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author.
★★☆☆☆ = Average.   Okay. 
★½☆☆☆ = Disliked or meh? but kept reading in hopes would improve.
★☆☆☆☆ = Loathed It. Possibly DNF and a torturous read.
½☆☆☆☆ = So vile was a DNF or should have been. Cannot imagine anyone liking.  (Might also be just an "uploaded" word spew or collection that should not be dignified by calling itself a "published book." If author is going batshit crazy in the blogosphere over reviews -- I now know why they are getting bad reviews.  Or maybe author should take remedial classes for language written in until basic concepts like using sentences sink in. Is author even old enough to sign a publishing contract or do they need a legal guardian to sign for them?)

The Third Mrs Durst
The Third Mrs.Durst - Ann Aguirre

Title :The Thrid Mrs.Durst

Author: Ann Aguirre
Genre: Thriller
Book synopsis
 Some people just need killing.
Marlena Altizer Durst lives in her husband’s shadow. He controls her every move—what she wears, the food she eats, and the friends she’s allowed to make. If she disobeys, there are… consequences. And he has all the power, so nobody would believe her.
Her Cinderella story has been well-documented and it seems that she leads a fairy-tale life. But nobody ever wonders if Cinderella was happy after she married the prince. Marlena has traded freedom and safety for luxurious imprisonment, and most days, that seems like a bad bargain. Death may be the only exit she’s allowed. Just like his first wife. And his second.
Unless she flips the script.
And gets away with murder… 
My thoughts: 
Rating:5 stars all the way
Would I recommend it? A BIG FAT YES , IN FACT I'm trying to talk one of my friends into reading it right now.
Would I read anything else by her: yes
Are there triggers that might be harmful to others ? Yes ,trigger warnings for rape.
Wow ,just wow , I can't seem to put how I feel about this book into words ,but I'm going to try .First let's talk about the character I hated ,the character that even though he was and is a book character had me thinking and plotting his disappearance / murder . And on that note that was the fault of my good friend Frishawn who wanted me to pick up this book right away since we both had it . And man was  she once again right about me liking a  book.And the drum roll  please for the book character I was plotting to murder  was and is the one and only   Michael Durst - his a manipulative 
narcissistic sociopath- who prays on young girls that come from nothing , and he then lures them into his web like a black widow spider  or a carnivores praying mantis ,and when his poor victims are unaware he strikes and shows his truth colors , which is 
 abusive and sadist in every way ,his Bluebeard in the flesh ( and we all know what type of person he was ), plus he seems to like to try an turn  his wives into the Stepford Wives ( and then when his done with them ,they meet their cruel fate ).And that all I'm saying about him ,
Now in to the character that I liked :  
And that's Marlena - who reminds me of a striking cobra, fast and deadly but there was times I kept thinking stop playing with your food and get it over with because doing those times she was like a cat who  plays  with their food before the going in for the kill  , but in the end she was the cobra , who is just as deadly as they are beautiful. With that said I want to say thanks Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion .

Honor Among Thieves - Ann Aguirre,Rachel Caine

Is it just me, or does this feel like a blooming romance between Zara and Nadim?
