The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith

This is a nice little book that covers the space of a day. (American) heroine and (English) hero end up sitting together on a flight from the United States to England, both ducking across the pond for family events.

 

Heroine Hadley’s family was torn to pieces when her father fell in love with an Englishwoman and abandoned them, and now she’s expected to attend the London wedding. This story is as much about family as romance.

 

As for the romance, I think the author managed the culture clash aspects well, and didn’t push things too far over such a short timeframe.

 

A sweet little book overall, though I’m not sure the father deserved to be so easily forgiven!

Court of Mist & Fury - Audiobook
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas,Jennifer Ikeda

Audience - Young Adult

 

Maybe I'd always been broken and dark inside.

- first sentence

 

Feyre is now High Fae, but she still has her human heart and she cannot forget all she did to save Tamlin and his court. She is depressed, but Tamlin is too busy trying to protect and save her to notice. She still has the deal with Rhysand, new powers that she doesn't understand, and Prythian is still in danger.

 

I loved this book for so many reasons. Mass takes us on an emotional journey as Feyre learns to control and develop her powers and to respect herself and understand what she needs to be happy. She leaves a controlling relationship for herself, not for another guy.  She is an amazing character and so strong.

 

Again Mass makes us love the characters, despite or maybe because of their flaws. So many characters turned out to be different than I expected. The story is emotional, sexy, serious, sad sometimes and funny at others. I loved Rhys's team and the way he respects and loves them. I loved Feyre's strength and her gradual acceptance that she is worthwhile and deserving of happiness.

 

And then, the end. WOW - what a twist. I was so angry along with Feyre and so sad at what happened. And then after that crazy, unfortunate twist, Feyre made a decision that broke my heart...

 

And I'm immediately on to the next book. 

 

P.S. This book was 23 hours, the next is 25 hours.

Tiger Striped - Jennifer Ashley

Very short novella where Tiger, Carly, and Conner go on a mission to rescue someone Tiger doesn’t know but knows he has to get to her fast.   The drive to find her is painful and insistent and Carly refuses to let Tiger go on another adventure without her there to protect him.  They are chased by black ops soldiers, cops, and park rangers.  Who they find in the basement of a shack in the mountains of New Mexico will shock those present but will give Tiger back someone he didn’t realize was still alive.  Great story.  The captive is a captivating character and the attraction between her and Conner definitely spells another book in the future.  Enjoyable and entertaining

Midnight Wolf - Jennifer Ashley

The story line was good. The characters were interesting and well developed. The conflict was strong and I liked the surprises along the way. It was slow at times, but I liked it better than Red Wolf. It is set in New Orleans so Jasmine’s haunted house plays a brief roll (YAY!) and Ben is in it, as well as Lady Aisley. I definitely want Ben’s book, it is high time he got his happily ever after. Overall I enjoyed it, but I didn’t devour it like others.

Court of Thorns & Roses - audio
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas,Jennifer Ikeda

 

The forest had become a labrynith of snow and ice.

- first sentence

 

Feyre is a nineteen-year-old girl who supports her family by hunting. When she kills a wolf, she violates a centuries-old treaty. As punishment, she must live with Tamlin, a powerful, immortal faerie in the land of Prythian. Feyre goes from hating Tamlin to falling in love with him, but there is a darkness over the land and Feyre may be their only hope.

 

This is a robust story with unexpected twists and turns. Feyre taught herself how to hunt in order to keep her family alive. She is a powerful girl and definitely not a typical fairy tale heroine - who needs a strong male to save her. I loved Feyre, Tamlin, Lucien, and even Rhys and I hated Amarantha and her evil court. I loved the derisive tone the narrator gave to Feyre's thoughts about certain characters and the emotion she infused into the story.

 

The end of this book was fabulous and I immediately started listening to book 2 (thank goodness for audible credits). The narrator did an excellent job, and I hope she continues with the next two books.
