TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY CLICK HERE

 

Want to know who these couples are? Read some of my review of Lose Me below! 

 

 

...Ari is a stunt double in a new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, which is actually pretty dang cool. Ladies, you don't have to be the leading actress. You can kick-ass by jumping off cliffs and driving cars around sick bends. Ari is an enigma the moment you meet her repeating “today is not the day I die” over and over again. Something’s amiss, obvious by the gentle cues from the writings, but you don't know what it is.

Wes is the leading man in the movie, literally the Darcy. And he’s just as you would picture as described by Ari before she meets him. But Wes isn't just a two-dimensional characters, smiling at the camera. He has feelings and demons that will haunt him throughout the novel....

Aaaand that's it! Good luck everyone!

Felix and the Prince
Felix and the Prince - Lucy Lennox Wow... I have read all the Made Marian series books and the first book in the Forever Wilde series as well. I loved each and every one of the previous books, but I think that this book may be Ms. Lennox's best work I have read to date. The MCs in this book are truly incredible, fully fleshed out and complex. I totally cared for both of them early on in the book and continued to do so throughout. The plot is exciting, well-written, sexy and full of feels. I love the interactions of Doc and Grandpa with Felix and the rest of the Wilde family. This book was heartfelt, fun and sexy as hell. The relationship developed at a nice pace and felt quite real. All in all this was a really fun read and I enjoyed it immensely.

Felix and the Prince
Felix and the Prince - Lucy Lennox I have to admit, I enjoyed this book much more than the first one of the series.

Maybe it's because the geek in me totally related to Felix, maybe it's because it was something that is happening in current time with the coming out of Lord Ivar Mountbatten, but either case I loved this book. It was a lovely, sweet, read about two people falling in love without the baggage of name, family, destiny or responsibility, and then learning how to cope when all those things intrude. I also loved the geeking out over stained glass. I could spend hours looking at stained glass so I can relate.

I think my favorite character of all is Hen. Lio is damned lucky to have her as a sister.

My only disappointment is the lack of... karma, I guess, for both Lio's father and Felix's mother. These are grown-ass adults who act like spoiled children and get away with it. Not cool.

It was nice to see the younger generation behaving better than the older on.

On a scale of 1-10 I give this a 7.

Family, friendship, and loyalty
Coming Attraction (Coastal College Football Book 2) - Felix Brooks,Andrea Dalling

3.5 stars
Coming Attraction is an engaging story that flows very well. The characters are interesting and it's easy to see that this is a great group of friends that will go the extra mile for each other. My problem lay in the romance in this one. Waseem and Brent are friends and they obviously care about each other, but it felt like that spark was missing. Their story does get steamy, but while I liked the characters, I didn't feel that something that makes a reader root for their happily ever after. For me, the story was more about Brent and his emotional turmoil with his family. Romance aside, this one was a sweet story about friendship, loyalty, and learning that family isn't always who we're born to, but those we choose to have in our lives.

Intense, complex and multilayered read
The Felix Chronicles: Freshmen - R.T. Lowe

I'm shelving this as a DNF for now, with the intent to come back to it at a later date. It was a Goodreads Giveaway book, so I'll definitely make the effort to push through and update my review when I make it to the end.

 

It's a highly detailed, complex fantasy (paranormal?) read and I think part of what made it hard for me to get through was just how much was going on. It starts in ancient history with a flashback setup of some kind of conspiracy, then jumps forward to a modern PNW campus with some kids that are probably going to be chased and/or eaten by monsters and also embroiled in a conspiracy...? So lots going on plot-wise, and some good writing especially in the high-action scenes. Tense and fast moving... but then it bogs down in description, or cuts to another aspect of the conspiracy or something and loses my interest.

 

I think this book would be appreciated by readers who really enjoy older or classic literature that has a high degree of description, and would do less well with thriller readers who are used to more streamlined storytelling.

 

The MC and core cast didn't really work for me as well, since he's a college guy with fairly well-represented college guy attitudes and interests. BUT, while that doesn't really hold my interest, I think it's great that there's a paranormal/fantasy out there that targets that audience, as most paranormal entries these days are more along the lines of female wish-fulfillment paranormal romances with hot (insert inhuman here).

 

The book production is high quality, and the author's obviously put a ton of work into a detailed, extensive story world that spans multiple books. There's enough here to intrigue me and make me want to come back and find out where it goes, but it wasn't quite the right fit for me, and there are some rough patches that I'd have liked to see smoothed over in edits as well.
