Review For: Consent by Charmaine Pauls
Consent (The Loan Shark Duet) (Volume 2) - Charmaine Pauls

Consent by Charmaine Pauls is Book Two in "The Loan Shark Duet". This continues the story of Valentina and Gabriel. You do have to read the previous book "Dubious" before reading this one to fully enjoy their story.
Consent picks up where Dubious left off. Gabriel is trying to locate Valentian who has up and left with her brother and not thinking to take any money with her. Gabriel plans on things going different than how he was working it before when he get a hold of Valentina again. Valentina is a strong women and has been through a lot to keep herself and her brother Charlie going. But even the strongest women still falls in love and can't stay away from that man.
This book continues the transformation from Gabriel being totally a dark character to a totally different one after finding love with Valentina. The sex scene where hot and loved the secondary characters a little more in this book.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-11-12 22:44
Jaws by Peter Benchley

**There is one spoiler below regarding a character death. It is marked with a spoiler tag**

 

 

There were a few things that I found highly unnecessary. I know this is written in a time period much different from today, but some of the outdated stuff in this did bother me a little bit.

Also the thing between two characters (you know what I mean) made me think "what was the point?" It just felt out of nowhere and what kind of people do things like that? Maybe I'm just too innocent in my thinking that most people are good deep down. However for these two characters, I did not like them at all.

The whole thing with Larry and his partners also made me go back and forth between if I liked him or not, but in the end, I just felt sorry for him, though I can't say I like him. Sure it was a crappy move what his so called partners made him do, but I don't know... I think I feel more for his poor wife.

Also the scene with the mother really broke me. In that moment, I did feel a little bad for Brody, he was trying to do the right thing from the start and the woman was in too much shock to even want to listen. I completely understand why though. 

She just lost her little boy and was in shock

(spoiler show)


Some people say it is dry and boring or so I've been told, but I wouldn't say that at all. I did like the book a whole lot and I think I would have loved it even more had a couple things been changed. Like the whole thing I mentioned above and some random characters/scenes that had no point to the plot.

Annotating Books & Jaws by Peter Benchley
Jaws - Peter Benchley

I've started to annotate my second book. Is it telling that this book was also written in 1974 like "Let's Play At The Adams" and I'm already have some issues with it? The book I am reading is Jaws by Peter Benchley. The only difference is though some things are angering me, I am enjoying the book.

 

***Spoilers for some cases of racism and homophobia in the book***

 

There was talk about something happening in the 50s, 60 and 70s. I can only assume the current story takes place in the 70s, but it reads earlier than that or am I just really "white privileged" because this book has brought up race several time in 77 pages. Like why bring race into it?

 

I know, because of the times this is set in this is how the people think of "the blacks" That is how they are referred as and of course they do the jobs of gardening, bartending, butlers, and maids. Also there was a black man who raped 7 rich white ladies, but when they put it in the paper, they would only say molested to save face for the small little town, and the women would never testify against the man out of shame? Shame in general or because he was black? (This wasn't in detail, just a case the cop remembered)

 

Also there was a homosexual slur on page 11, using the F word, which I hate. You know the one I mean. See, I know the author is trying to stay true to the time, but it still bothers me and I have to wonder if he goes around using the F word and calling black people "the blacks". Other than these things, I am enjoying annotating the book. So far the first movie is true to the book (minus all the racism ..etc)

Seduced by Shark Shifters III: Tom's Turn (By the Water #3) by Rafe Jadison
Seduced by Shark Shifters III: Tom's Turn - Rafe Jadison
Tom's Turn is the third book in this series, but for me, I would say it is the second part to Logan's Tail. You can't read this story without reading that one first, and expect it to make sense. Tom has always let Logan take the lead with their friendship, even though he wants more. However, now he has had a 'taste' of what he has been missing, and will do whatever it takes to keep Logan for himself. Of course, there is the slight problem of Stefano being not only Logan's husband, but also a nice guy. Tom won't give up though, even when Stefano's twin sister steps in to cause untold trouble.
 
I LOVED THIS! The drama between Logan, Stefano, and Tom was there. If anything, it was Logan who was blasé about it, whereas Tom and Stefano understood and tried to work with it. Logan's dad turns up with secrets of his own which completely turn this tale around! I am hoping to see something go on there, but I won't say anymore as I don't do spoilers.
 
Once again, this book had no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I was thoroughly engrossed and loved every word from start to finish. Absolutely recommended by me, and I can't wait for this series to continue.

Seduced by Shark Shifters II: Logan's Tail - Rafe Jadison
Logan's Tail is the second book in this series, and I can honestly say it didn't happen the way I thought it would! Logan is Sam's younger brother, and is sent to Suncoast to find out what's going on with his brother by his father. Not only that, but his father has also signed him up for a writing course without his knowledge. This means that he has to leave his best friend, Tom, behind which is more painful that he thought. When he arrives, he goes for a swim to relax, and meets up with a couple of people outside the roped off area. It is when he meets them again later on that the fun really starts! Like I said, this one didn't go the way I was expecting, but it was a thrilling read just the same. There is a lot of history explaining Logan and Tom's friendship so you know just how hard it is for them to be in different places. Sam and the twins are here, but obviously don't play as big a part as they did in their book.
 
This was exceedingly well written, with plenty of action, and no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pace was smooth and the tension real. I can't wait to see where this is going. Definitely recommended by me.
