The Innocent Auction - DNF @ 25%.
The Innocent Auction - Story Perfect Editing Services,Victoria Sue

Contrived scenes to give the MCs forbidden but tepid smooching scenes, zero build up to any kind of relationship and zero chemistry despite all the lusting between them. Bored now.

 

There is an attempt at a plot though, so that's nice, but honestly, I've read much better master/servant fanfic than this back when I was absorbing every Frodo/Sam slash fic I could get my greedy little hands on. Plus, the constant bad grammar (was stood, had sat) and missing punctuation killed this story even before I got to this:

 

"...his skin taught..."

 

Um...sorry, honey, but skin cannot be taught. It has no brains to be learning with! It can however be taut.

Finley - Ella Frank

DNF @ 48%

I picked this book because I loved Logan & Tate and I was interested in knowing the story behind Daniel Finely.

At first I thought this book was going to be similar to the Logan & Tate storyline but after reading the first chapters I realized that it was totally different and I was actually interested in new characters and their own storyline but the more I read the more I lost interest in the book I guess I expected them to act in a certain way and they acted differently which made it hard for me to connect with the characters, so I decided to DNF this book, maybe after a while I will try again.

Be very, very careful what you wish for
The Serpent Scrolls: Rise of the Immortal Snake (The War with Satan Book 1) - Kenneth Harris

Afterwards, he was immediately executed. It is believed by local scholars that his beaten and burned corpse was decapitated limb by limb and buried in the forgotten grounds of Serpent Cemetery just outside of Kilfield, Massachusetts. Reportedly, his spirit awaits rebirth by 99 souls from his own admission shortly before his death.

Harris, Kenneth . The Serpent Scrolls: Rise of the Immortal Snake (The War with Satan Book 1) . Kindle Edition.

 

Emphasis is mine.  This is from the one-page Introduction.  It is the second or third major grammatical or syntactical error on that short page.

 

Disclosure:  I obtained the Kindle edition of this book on 19 October 2017 when it was offered free and promoted as such on BookLikes.  I have had intermittent communication on BookLikes with the author, but not about this book or about his writing in general.  I am an author of adult fiction and non-fiction.

 

 

The text is absurdly over-written, with four adjectives used where one would be too many. Often, they're misused.

 

Lots of words are misused.

 

He inserted the mouth of a rigid bolt cutter over the bulky wrapped chains and bisected it.

Harris, Kenneth . The Serpent Scrolls: Rise of the Immortal Snake (The War with Satan Book 1) (p. 1). Kindle Edition.

(One does not insert something over something else.  Bolt cutters have blades, jaws, and a neck, but not a mouth.  Chains are plural; it is singular.)

 

 

I don't know if this is supposed to be a morality tale reminding us of God's love or a Young Adult horror story.  If it's supposed to be a combination of the two, I can only roll my eyes.

 

The book needs serious editing.  I'm not being paid to do that.

 

I recommend avoiding this book as if it were a rattlesnake.

Not Worth Spending my Time
Texas Pride (The Texas Heat Series) - Gerry Bartlett

Book 3 in the series.

Sadly this is the first book from Ms. Bartlett I didn't enjoy. I just didn't like one the main characters, Shannon, and felt nothing for their relationship. I read only 50% before dropping it. I found myself not caring about her and where she goes at all, so I didn't finish. Ms. Bartlett won me over years ago with her fantastic characters in her plus sized vampire series. This one book has not made me less of a fan, not every character is for every reader.
