What Matters Most - Cynthia Victor

I decided to finally read this book so I can lay it to rest.  It is in sad shape.  

 

Does anyone use the website www.paperbackswap.com? I have used it for years and love it.  I participate in a group there where every month they pick a book that has been languishing on their TBR list and read it and then post their star rating and review.  At the end someone else from the group can request a book from the list of reviewed books.  If a book is unpostable because of damage or whatever, according to the rules of the website, then we just write that it is unpostable and for what reasons and the other people can decide for themselves if they want it anyway.  Some people will send those books for free.  

 

I participated in that group for most of last year and moved a lot of books off of my TBR list and some of them I ended up loving. I also acquired a few good books too but I´ve been trying to make room on my shelves so I didn´t request many.  

 

This particular book is falling apart as I speak so I´m sure no one will want it but it looks interesting.  I´m just having a hard time getting the last book out of my head.

My Thoughts

 

 

While It's not favorite JLA, it was good, just not without some issues.  I was right about who did it…and while she had me thinking…maybe it's someone else, I always went back to…and…yeah.  Overall, now that I had some time to ruminate on it I realize, it hasn't left a lasting impression on me.  I think, Till Death is just lacking JLA's usual zest.

 

Will I read more from this Author  Absolutely…this less than stellar read from her, will not change my mind on that.

Till Death Book Review
Till Death - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I really enjoyed this one, as I usually do with Armentrout. This felt much more mature and very different from her usual paranormal romance series. Its one of my favorites by her and I want her to write some thrillers. Yes there was romance, but I loved the kidnapping story line and felt hooked from page one. 

 

Sasha has returned home for the first time in years. Her mom is happy she's home as is her best friend. But everyone still remember's her as the survivor. The one who got away from the groom. And now someone is terrorizing her, a women goes missing in Frederick and Sasha can't help but wonder if coming home was the right thing to do. But seeing Cole makes it all worth it. 

 

I love the relationship of these two characters. Another reason I really enjoy Armentrout's books is because she's local and I know all the locations in her books (at least when they aren't in paranormal scenes. 

 

Super fun and super hot. A quick read but just what I needed to get out of a reading slump.

Till Death and Beyond - Lyn C. Johanson

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I haven't heard of this author and she reached out to me to see if I would be interested in reading her book. The premise intrigued me so I gave it a shot and I am glad I did. The premise was interesting, a witch who has been reincarnated multiple times and has lived for centuries stuck doing the will of the gods. She is strong yet doesn't always see any hope and freedom in her future though she desperately wants it. Raven is a jaded man bent on vengeance against witches and driven to cure his tortured brother. The last thing he expects is to fall for a witch and have his views on what a witch is supposed to be like questioned. The villain in this story is fate; will she be doomed to repeat one life after another powerless against the goddess that controls her. There is a demon bent on manipulating all involved to get what he wants, a goddess determined to stop a prophecy no matter the lives she has to destroy, an ancient witch who wants the prophecy fulfilled so she can be reincarnated, and finally Venlordians who are witch hating humans. The plot is full, there is action, drama, passion, and well-developed characters that carry the story from beginning to end. My only negative was at the very beginning it was a bit difficult getting my barring as to what the goddess actually wanted her to do, her next mission wasn't clearly stated so I spent a chapter or two trying to follow what was going on and where the action was heading. But once Raven enters the scene and I get wrapped up in the tension between the two of them, I really didn't much care about the mission she was supposed to be on because they fed the story and pulled me into their turmoil and attraction.  I was pleasantly surprised how well developed the plot was and how much I enjoyed reading this book. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
