Dirty
Dirty - Belle Aurora description

description

I had to sit and think a bit before I wrote this review. I've been waiting for this book for what feels like AGES. So you can imagine my excitement when I was offered an ARC. Dancing around the apartment may or may not have occurred.

Unfortunately, I didn't love this one...sigh. It was ALL over the place for me. There are two separate storylines that take place in it, and I found that the secondary one took away from Julius's and Alejandra's. Their story just never felt fleshed out enough for me to connect to them as a couple. We go from "I am going to kill you" to "I am going to keep you forever" in like the span of a day. Then we have Julius pulling a douche move of EPIC proportions that just comes out of left field. Umm *BOUNCE* seriously?? We also have a fourth POV (Ling) that AGAIN, in my opinion, took away from the main characters. Of course, that could be because I LOATHED her.

I almost feel like the author would have been better served to make the secondary storyline a novella heading into book three (yes there is going to be ANOTHER book) and gave the extra page space to fleshing out Julius's and Alejandra's story. Since the two storylines were connected by the thinnest of threads.

I also wasn't feeling the sex scenes in this one. First, there isn't really that much, to begin with, and the VERY few there were are lukewarm at best. It's been awhile since I read book one, but I seem to remember it having dirty hot sex scenes. So I kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Oh good, they are going to have sex. THEN Julius says to Ana "I won't go down on you, or have sex with you bare because you have a douche of a husband who cheated on you and I'm not going to take the chance of catching something" (I'm paraphrasing) Realistic, I guess, not in ANY way, shape or form, sexy though.

Of course, this is just one person's opinion and you may LOVE every minute of this book. It wasn't a badly written book. And maybe I had my expectations set too high. I enjoyed it enough that I will be reading book three, since really, that is the book I have been waiting for since book one ended.

Love Thy Neighbour
Love Thy Neighbour - Belle Aurora I loved this one more than the first book in this series. It was great, funny and sweet. I loved their antics.
Kind of too sweet and perfect at times, and a bit predictable, but I really enjoyed reading this one. I have a bad case of the flu and this book was just what I needed.

Friend-Zoned
Friend-Zoned - Belle Aurora 4.25/5 stars

This was cute and funny and I enjoyed it. It was a little too cheesy sometimes and the drama got to a point where it was a teeny tiny bit too much. The gang is great. I wish I had a friend like Natalie and the other girls and guys are awesome. Tina and Nik are interesting charachters and it was entertaining to see them as friends first. Oh, and Ceecee was just the cutest little thing. I hope to see more of these characters and I will most likely read more books in this series.

Recommended if you love a sweet romance story, a great gang of characters, some suspense, some drama and some funny moments.

Love Thy Neighbour (Friend-Zoned, #2) by Belle Aurora
Love Thy Neighbor - Belle Aurora

20/6 - There were many, many problems with this but I just loved it. The editing gets 1.5 stars (mistakes of all kinds everywhere - missing words, missing letters, incorrect words, typos, incorrect tenses, etc.), the general writing gets 2 stars (lots of repetition of words/phrases), the dialogue gets 2 stars (some pretty stilted conversations made worse by awkward phrasing, the plot gets 3 stars (so predictable), the characters get 5 stars (oh Ash! *swoon*). All that adds up to '4 I loved it, but I can't overlook all the faults' stars. Damn, I wish I could edit out the errors as I read and have it translate to all the other copies because the plot and characters deserve better treatment than they got.

 

I loved Asher! His chapters/scenes were my favourite, especially when he was sneaking into Nat's apartment. Lots of sex from both PoV with possibly an excessive amount of swearing, especially the F word (I don't think anyone used the phrase 'have sex' once in the whole book).

 

This, and the first book in the series, are books I would read over and over (I finished this two days ago and I already want to read it all over again) and really enjoy but I just can't buy a book that needs so much more editing, so if I ever do buy it, it won't be till it's been gone over by someone with a better eye for detail than whoever did it this time. I can't wait to get my hands on Sugar Rush the next book in the series (am I living in a dreamland for hoping it will be better edited?).

Friend-Zoned (Friend-Zoned, #1) by Belle Aurora
Friend-Zoned - Belle Aurora

19/12 - This book is irrepressible. It has many, many flaws. The editing is mediocre at best (and gets worse the further in to the book you get), the dialogue is weird and a bit cheap sounding, the characters make some ridiculous decisions that gave me eye-roll-strain, all three of the following books' relationships are set up in this book and it's already clear who's with who, and Aurora doesn't seem to understand how either the mob/mafia or paraplegia work. Despite ALL that I not quite loved, but definitely really enjoyed this book. Like I said, irrepressible. I tried not to enjoy it (and, with all the flaws, I shouldn't have), but I couldn't help myself. It's like someone telling dreadful 'dad' jokes, they're so not funny but you can't help but laugh every time you hear one. My dad is a great one for telling those kinds of jokes/one liners. His favourite revolves around the names Ben and Bob. If you mention someone named Ben, he'll always ask if their last name is Dover. If you mention someone named Bob, he'll always ask if their last name is Down. Hilarious, right? Yeah, that's what I think too -_- and that's kind of how I felt reading Friend-Zoned, I enjoyed it but feel a bit embarrassed to admit it. Still, will read Ghost and Nat's book when I can find the time.
