#5 in 2016: The Score - Elle Kennedy
The Score - Elle Kennedy

this new adult sports romance is like an accident about to happen
I want to look away but can't
I'm not sure why I'm reading the books in the series
I don't like
how alcohol and other drugs are handled
how condoms used while being drunk never fail to be safe
in The Score
I didn't like the shock moment towards the end of the story
it felt like a cheap hit
on the final pages all issues were solved a bit too easily
but the story also made me smile
my emotions were involved
Elle Kennedy's writing style is great
The Score made me laugh
it also frustrated me
will I go on with the series?
yes (don't ask me why)

Another Brilliant, Beautifully Written Book by Zack Love!!
Anissa's Redemption: A Young Woman's Saga from War in Syria to Love in NY Continues (The Syrian Virgin Series Book 2) - Zack Love

Just when I thought that Zack Love had written his most impressive novel to date when he wrote "The Syrian Virgin", he pleasantly surprises me with “Anissa’s Redemption!” I had such a book hangover afterward that it took awhile for me to come out of my literary fog.

Many times when a book I really love ends with a cliffhanger, I find myself hanging onto those last few words and images in hopes that the sequel will be written soon after so that I won’t forget all of its excitement and the feelings the writer has evoked. I worry, too, that with all the anticipation and expectation leading up to the sequel, in the end, it will fall short and leave me disappointed with the series.

This was DEFINITELY not the case with Zack Love’s sequel to “The Syrian Virgin” called “Anissa’s Redemption.” In fact, it was so much better than I ever imagined it would be and it did NOT disappoint!

In “Anissa’s Redemption”, I loved how (seemingly) effortless it was for Zack to pick up where he ended in “The Syrian Virgin” and how from the very beginning, the plot and all his characters continued to evolve and develop throughout. Zack’s intelligent writing and extensive research also continued to paint an accurate and compelling portrayal of the religious struggles caused by Syrian Civil War. But what I loved most about “Anissa’s Redemption was his brilliant ability to peel away more and more of Anissa, Michael and Julien’s "layers" to reveal their true selves and their darkest secrets before the readers’ eyes and not only make them appear more human, but more endearing as well.

In writing "Anissa’s Redemption", Zack created an exciting and quite an emotional roller coaster ride and with every twist and turn of events, he takes his readers through many surprising developments and defining moments!

Definitely a must read!

Heart Racer
Heart Racer: Heart Racer College Biker Romance Series - Marian Tee

This was your usual contemporary romance where girl meets boy, falls in love with boy, boy does something wrong--breaking girls heart...and then usually they make up again and live happily ever after. Only this ended with the boy--Leandro--breaking the girls--Bobby's--heart.

 

I know it's a series and that the author needed to continue it somehow but I kinda feel cheated, there didn't seem to be a proper ending.

 

As for the rest of the book, I can't say that I ever really got into it. I was unattached from the characters and the storyline. I don't know if it's because I've read too many books that are similar or if it was the style but something stopped me from liking it. It was just "meh" for me.

 

I don't think I'll be continuing the series.

Just another in a long line..
Fall into Forever - Beth Hyland

Want to read another NA- College based Romance book with a tattooed, manwhore bad boy who finally meets "the one"?  With said "one" that also happens to be a complete pushover with personal issues that he can help save her from, while she reciprocates by saving him from himself?  Then look no further. 

 

You know, I kind of feel bad for authors who are trying to break into this genre. It is SO bogged down by the same type of books, that it has gotten to the point where it is almost impossible to put out something that really stands out. This book wasn't really bad, but when it is just another in a long line of the same story it just becomes boring. There wasn't anything special about it to make me care about anything or anyone. I actually kind of liked it, but there was nothing there that will make me remember anything that happened after finishing another book or two. 

 

I guess I'm saying that if you aren't already completely over reading books like this, you'll probably like it. There isn't really anything overtly annoying (other the aforementioned pushover issues of Ivy), the writing is decent, and Jon isn't a total douchebag.  That's obviously not a glowing recommendation, but if you are one who is over the genre, you'll know that it isn't as bad as it could be.
