Lola
Lola: A Novel - Melissa Love

Lola is at times an uncomfortable read. The main character, Lola, shadow-leader of the Crenshaw Six, is extremely ruthless and this makes that you're immediately hooked. And as things start to spin out of control, Lola will take even more cruel decisions.

But, back to the start. Lola, secretly the leader of a small gang in Los Angeles, makes a bad decision that put her and hers right in the middle of two battling cartels. While now her life is in immediate danger she to a level likes it because this is the moment for her to step out of the shadows and stop being underestimated.

It was a surprisingly good book. I'm usually not really into books about gang/drug wars, but Lola's story was very good. I liked her connection to Lucy, but her conflicted relationship with her brother didn't feel real to me. If you do not like to read about violence, mutilation, rape, murder and the like, this probably isn't the book for you. Otherwise, it's a very compelling read.

Thanks to the publisher and Blogging for Books for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Lola: A Novel - Melissa Love

The idea of a story about a female gang leader in a world still completely male dominated is intriguing. Lola's story is set in the world of the LA gangs and drug cartels. Ultimately, this is book about a strong woman in extreme circumstances who manages not just to survive but thrive and carve a life out for herself in a man's world. Considering this is Melissa Love's debut novel, I look forward to her next character. Lola certainly leaves an impression!

 

Reviewed for the Penguin First to Read program.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-04-07 00:00
Southern Comfort
Southern Comfort - Lola Carson,Elsa Wint... Southern Comfort - Lola Carson,Elsa Winters Jake Mitchell and his son Josh move from New York to Jake’s hometown of Georgia to start anew after they both suffer something horrific. Jake hopes the change will be good for his son and himself. With the new move, Jake is still trying to get his footing. His car has other ideas though.

Matt Jackson is a mechanic at Murphy’s Repair. When Jake brings his car in because of car trouble, Matt is called on to assist him. On their first meeting the two feel a strong attraction to each other; Matt goes as far as to offer Jake a ride home several times.
Well the blurb explains a bit more but the two start to quietly date. Jake and Matt have their reasons for wanting to keep their relationship quiet.

I really liked this story. Jake and Matt subtle flirting on their first meeting was kind of cute. I really thought Matt would be the more outgoing of the two but they’re both really confident men who aren’t afraid to ask for what they want from each other. I liked that they have a respected boundary for each other.

Jake and Josh having the talk after Josh catches Jake and Matt had me a bit teary eyed. I liked that heart to heart moment that happened. Josh was a good kid and I liked that he was supportive of his dad even if he felt a bit betrayed.
Old Joe was a pain to read about I really disliked him and wanted him to disappear from Matt’s life and stop making snide remarks to Jake. Maria was a pretty awesome partner for Jake and I loved that she was a friend to him and invested in teasing and finding out more about his relationship with Matt.

The arsonist going around town was something I thought was an easy conclusion to come to for suspects. I mean especially after one particular conversation Jake had with the character. No suspects were ever names and there was never mention that they suspected anyone. I mean it was really apparent with the second incident it was mentioned what a witness heard. I feel like Maria and Jake were really bad cops.

Skin Deep: The Complete Serial (Episodes 1-6) - Lola Carson

DNF @ 40%, No Rating

 

The first few chapters were promising but as the story goes on I started to loose interest and the story became boring and the characters annoying, there was so many characters and I couldn't understand the Mcs relationship or even connect with them Stuart at times was a nice normal guy and the next he is dangerous the same with Danny once he is shy & vulnerable and the next he is over confident.

 

At the end I couldn't force myself to read more of this and decided to DNF this book.
