Vehn (Exotic Ink Series Book 1) by L.S. Anders
Vehn - Exotic Ink Series: Book One - LS Anders,Paradox Book Covers Formatting,Ella Medler,Elfwerks Editing

OMGOSH! This turned out to be a great read.

So I had a hard time in the beginning & leading up towards the middle, with our heroine. I understood her misgivings/fears, I did. I just felt like certain occurrences should have jolted her out of her way of thinking a lot sooner. Then what she did or how she handled the big eff up 75% in the novel, I was soooo ticked at her. I mean I totally saw myself leaping into my kindle, into her living room and shaking the ever loving crap out of her & letting Vehn in her house, so he could explain himself. LOL!

This was a very sexy, sweet, emotionally driven read. I loved/liked all the main supporting cast here. Hints to some of their individual stories, seem intriguing. Got my nosy behind dying to know what the deal is.... Sorry but I laughed so hard when it was finally revealed how Brent died.

I REALLY love Tegan To be quite honest, I was crushing on him way more than I was Vehn *Whispers* Sorry Vehn.

I think/hope given where Rayna & Tegan's story start here in this book, that their book will be off the chain interesting, intense, and beautiful. #CannotWaitForTheirStory.

Oh and Regina,

This was a great intro to this series. I highly recommend that you read it.

Happy Reading :)

My Thoughts:

 

This wasn't a perfect read, but it was fun.

 

Most people put this in the young adult catagory. I feel most middle graders would handle this well.

 

To me it is obvious that this author was greatly infuenced by a lit of other popular novels of this genre, but that does not by any means make this any less of great read. I think this is great blend of everything previous done right, but with an original flare all its own. I found the way the demons worked to be especially interesting.

 

I love that this started on watt pad and really turned Inot something great that got the recognition it deserved.

CAPTIVATED: STILES--BEFORE by Katherine King
Captivated: Stile Series (Book One): Stile: Before - Katherine King,Denise Fowler
  Harley spots Kate in the audience at his concert and wants her. She wants nothing to do with him. She has a boyfriend but is drawn to Harley. Drawn together they discover what they have in common and work towards a relationship.

I enjoyed this story. I liked the first person point of view from each perspective as well as the insight into their thoughts and feelings. Watching how the secondary characters saw their relationship gave more insight into their personalities, especially Harley's. I hated the cliffhanger ending. Now I have to get part 2 so I know what happens to them. Ugh!!!

Why the heck did it take me so long to read this? I really am enjoying this. Big thanks to Bookstooge for the idea on how to plan readinget! If not for that post I a, not sure I would ever have read this.

 

On the side note. I counted how many books I have purchased through Amazon, Google Play, I books, Feedbooks, and other sites that I have not read... too large. Over 150. I don't even want to think about how much money it is that I spent on those books that I will never eventually read... shit, I thought about it. I will post my list soon, in sections. I am organizing my list into series right now.
