The Girlfriend - Michelle Francis

Wow, apparently this is my week for books about liars. HA!! I just started this one and it looks as if everyone is living in their own pretend world and lying to everyone. Well . . .

This is the first time that this has ever happened to me ever in requesting books. I didn't get the whole book! The book just ended right when the girlfriend found out that her new boyfriend's mother was spying on her. And, yep, that doesn't work for Cherry. She's hiding too many things!

I was so, so, sooooooooo into this book. I'm really sad I didn't get the whole thing on my download. 

:(

Would definitely recommend it though. I was at location 1195 when it ended very abruptly. Loved it though!! Want more!! HA!!!

Thanks to Kensington Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

How to Ensnare a Highlander (The MacGregor Lairds) (Volume 2) - Michelle McLean

How to Ensnare a Highlander by Michelle McLean is book Two in "The MacGregor Lairds" Series. This is the story of Lady Elizabet Harding and Laird John MacGregor. I have read the previous book 'How to Lose a Highlander' but feel this is easily a standalone book.
John is trying to get revenge on his brother's death by holding the men he feels is reposible for it, Fergus Campbell and Lord Dawsey. Doing so has put him on the path to being the 'Highland Highwayman'. Lord Dawsey is Elizabet father who has now informed her that he has arraigned a marriage for her with Fergus Campbell. Elizabet is very upset by this and when she goes to get her thoughts together ends up running into John John is not letting on who he really is with Elizabet because he doesn't know if she can be trusted. But they are both very attracted to each other. John tries to fight his growing feelings but it is something he can't seem to do.
Really enjoyed this book!

Book Review: Where I End By Michelle Dare
Where I End - Michelle Dare

 

* If you are thinking about committing suicide or have gone through any abuse (sexual, verbal, or otherwise) please get help. There are places dedicated to helping people going through the same thing you're going through. Remember you are not alone! Please visit the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

 

This novel deals with very serious subject matter and as much as I respect that, I didn't necessarily like the way it was told. Something was off about it. Maybe it was the writing style or the way the author set out to tell it. Unfortunately, I didn't love it.

 

There were times when the dialogue was robotic and excessively wordy for no apparent reason. There were other times when the character seemed to have verbal diarrhea because they wouldn't shut up about how they were feeling when the original question was the equivalent to "how's the weather today?".

 

Though I can respect a good and sometimes elaborate monologue this book, at times, had too little of it and other times too much of it. Things were getting over explained from different point of views and didn't have the effect that the author was hoping for from me. The story started to drag on in some moments and speed up at other moments.

 

On a better note, I really liked Cy. He had a horrible series of events happen to him and to top it all off his mother never believed a word he said about it all until drastic measures were taken. He's earned my respect especially when he made it a point to get help. I would have loved to see a scene of one of his therapy sessions in the book. The only turn off was in the beginning with him bullying the heroine. Everyone makes mistakes, but had I been in Eve's shoes I wouldn't have cared about what could have happened to him.

 

Eve was a very likable character. She was bullied when she was younger and she claims that it made her the person she is today. I can agree that a few bad situations can build character, but I wouldn't want to be in the same room as the person who has hurt me up to that point in life. I liked how she was the bigger person and forgave Cy. Their relationship was cute, if not a tad bit overbearing and overprotective on Cy's part.

 

The ending was too perfectly predictable. When I say that I'm referencing the letters from Risa. What if the complete opposite had happened and she was just reading too much into the situation? Some moms are known to do that. I knew that was the way it was going to end up eventually, but those letters were the straw that broke the camel's back. As dark and twisted as this story was I didn't like how it was executed overall.

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"Because your life is worth more than my hurt feelings. Because as much as you don't think so, you matter to me."


"It's possible to go through life on autopilot. I've done it many times."


"Once I escaped this h*ll, there was no returning."

CALIFORNIA GRIL CHRONICLS: BREA & THE CITY OF PLASTIC by Michelle Gamble-Risley
Brea And The City Of Plastic - Michelle Gamble-Risley

Brea moves to Los Angeles to be a screenwriter and gets involved with men from home and LA.

 

I did not like most of these people at all.  Brea and Drew (as well as Drew's many "friends") were so shallow that I was disgusted by them.  All Brea worried about was clothes and sex.  She was raped but went along with it instead of calling the cops especially with Drew.  He is a whacked out job.  I truly could not relate to her.  I was in shock that she tells Drew off but never goes to the cops. She finally finds a good guy and she messes it up.  I liked Kale and Maya.  They seemed the only ones who were realistic and down-to-earth.

 

The author can write (which is why I finished the book.)  She had me feeling emotions towards the characters (probably not the ones she wanted me to feel.)  She also writes good sex scenes.  I would like to see her write a book with less shallow characters who care about something or someone rather than how people or events affect/serve them.  I probably will not read the next book of the series because I only want to know what happens between Brea and Kale and the blurb for the next book mentions Kale but he's in a list with others.  I will, however, look for other books by her because I liked her writing style.
