Scrum
Scrum - P.D. Singer

Sweet, good on the sports facts, but otherwise kind of... forgettable. Literally. I completely forgot I read this already while looking at in the kindly store. It took me another review to realize which story it was and when I read it.

So, yeah. Nice, and after reading about the characters again, I rembered the story. But the fact that I forgot the MCs and their story in the first place? Not impressing. So, that would be 2 stars. Okay, but nothing more.

Zeph's Awakening
Zeph's Awakening - Serena Yates

Zeph is a deeply closeted high school student who is much better at dealing with academics than he is with his fellow students. When two jocks who normally ignore him invite him to a party at the lake, he knows something is wrong. They don't take no for an answer and soon Zeph is in much deeper water than he can deal with - literally. He realizes it is time to make some changes when Charles comes to the rescue...

 

 

Short and sweet. A freebie to pass some time, but nothing more. There couldn't really be any depth, or development of romance, and in the end I was pretty much as indifferent to the whole thing as before. So no harm, no foul; but that was all.

La tienda vintage de Astor Place
La tienda vintage de Astor Place (Éxitos literarios) (Spanish Edition) - Stephanie Lehmann

De entrada la historia parecía una lectura ligera pero interesante para una tarde de sábado: dos vidas compartiendo una misma ciudad en dos épocas diferentes, Historia, contrastes, recuerdos y una portada encantadora.

Sin embargo ha resultado ser una historia lenta y poco atractiva, de personajes planos y situaciones previsibles o nada interesantes.

 

La tienda vintage de Astor Place es una lectura mediocre que si valoras tu tiempo te ahorrarás...

Teniendo un puente sin planes me he permitido el lujo de terminármelo, puesto que si no lo hubiera hecho hoy, hubiera quedado a medio leer sobre la mesilla para siempre y sin remordimiento.

 

Desgraciadamente tampoco es un libro suficientemente malo como para poder destriparlo con saña en una review.

 

Empezando a olvidar esta historia en 3... 2... 1...

DNF: Unearthed (UN-Forgettable #1) by C.J. Barry
Unearthed - C. J. Barry

I'm so sick of these bitches.

She's kidnapped by somebody. Somebody with a floating robot - not something you see every day. When she wakes up, she thinks she's on a boat. So she plans to jump ship, even though she could be in the middle of the ocean. Then she finds out she's on a spaceship and still tries to escape. What the hell is she gonna do? Jump out of an airlock? Commandeer a spacecraft and fly it home? Like she has any fucking clue how to fly anything or even where home is? No. Once you're on an alien ship, your main goal should be to survive. Escape does not equal survival.

So then they're attacked by other aliens. Aliens that specifically want her... dead. And she's somehow pissed that the guy didn't let her out of her room so she could watch the attack through the front windshield. Bitch, choose your battles!

And then they're on the alien planet, where it's dangerous. IT IS DANGEROUS. 
"Oh, please let's go down into the alien shopping center, I wanna see!"
"I'm sorry, it's too dangerous."
So she screams bloody murder, making her pilot think that something is horribly wrong and slam on the brakes. At which point, she jumps out of the fucking hovercraft and hauls ass down a back alley so she can... sing with a street band. WHAT. THE. FUCK. Aliens are trying to kill you because you've got this magical singing voice, so you should definitely draw attention to yourself in the middle of the town square... BY SINGING.

At that point, I'm done. In addition to numerous TSTL moments, this girl is constantly pushing alien dude's buttons. She taunts him, insults him, and tries to piss him off. He needs her, so he can't just outright kill her, but god damn he should have been tempted. Hell, I wanted to toss her out of an airlock for being so disrespectful. I understand that you don't exactly want to be nice to your kidnapper, but she knows he doesn't intend to hurt her. She knows he intends to return her after she helps him save A FREAKING PLANET. And come on, his issues are bigger than her desire to cut a record. She has nothing in her life that means anything but a fat ass cat. Embrace the experience, you dumbass! Stop being such a bitch to the people that are currently in control of your life and make the best of it.

Uuugh, it's so frustrating. I need a sci-fi romance where the chick is like "Fuck yeah, outer space - bring it!" I would be totally excited about going to an alien planet. Why can't fictional characters be the same way?

The Secret
The Secret - Julie Garwood

The Secret had been on my TBR list for a long time and I was craving some good ol' historical romance, so I downloaded it blind (no sample) and gave it a try.

 

I can see what drew readers to this story. it's simple and sweet with a writing style that was easy to follow. I thought that it lacked the depth and conflict that I need to make it an entirely engrossing read. I read this one in three nights, picking it up off my bedside table before hitting the hay. I never opened it up during the day the following mornings because the story never drew me in enough to get that can't put it down feeling. I was happy to let it lie until the next evening when I could pick it back up and set it down easily when my eyes got tired from reading.

 

The main character (I can't even remember her name, that's how unmemorable it was for me) has it way too easy. Yes, there is talk about abuse in her past and a mother that wasn't there for her and left her for long periods of time. She was afraid of men drinking around her because her uncle was quick to strike out at her when he was drunk. All of these things are unfortunate for her, but everything we got during the story was too damn easy. There was so much room here for conflict with the people of the Highlands clashing against this English damsel, but with all of the hulking Highland warriors having her back and her best friend on her side through everything, I never felt like she had any obstacles to overcome. Any time one was presented, it was quickly fixed. I ended up finishing the read with a kind of eh feeling.

 

Overall, I'd give this book 2.5 stars and I would recommend it for people who want an easy, put you to sleep before bed read. I won't be moving on to any other books from this author, though.
