Wild and Free by Kristen Ashley
Wild and Free (The Three Series Book 3) - Kristen Ashley

Way too long. I was bored out of my mind and forced myself to read it. Also, it's really bad when I'm more interested in other characters than the main couple. I liked Yuri and Aurora a lot more and wanted to read more about them. 
Why do they have to call their women bitches? Every time Abel said it, I wanted to punch him in the face. Repeatedly. Abel and Lilah also had so many sex scenes that I started skipping these. I waited for the golem attack and then didn't "see" any of the action because I was forced to sit in the basement with a group of women drinking tea. Such a disappointment. 
Loved the world, liked the side-characters, and didn't care much about the main couple.
2.5 stars

Articulate sentences need not apply
The Gamble - Kristen Ashley

I've, mostly, given up on Ashley as her writing style/voice more often than not, constantly draws me in with promise but never delivers. This was a Kindle Freebie and Random Number Generator picked it out of the abyss. 

 

This story:

 

 

An Ashley hero calling the heroine "babe" and/or "baby"? NEVER. (She has an English accent so he also calls her Duchess)

 

 

 

"Executed a perfect 3 point turn". Why did I read this sentence over and over again? Was Ashley a driver instructor in a former life??

 

 

Sandwiched between the "babe" calling, three-point turning, and drama ending was some honest to god deep emotional issues (domestic violence, rape, disabilities) that get broached but never fully developed. Ashley's ability to incorporate these issues and emotions are what tempt me to keep reading her (the promise I was talking about) but ugh, no development. These issues almost start to seem sensationalized and click-bait reading because Ashley doesn't develop the issues and characters. 

 

 

 

The ending, my god, the ending. Drama after sensationalized drama. The repeat situations our heroine found herself in got to be tedious and one of the villains ended up being portrayed cartoonish. 

 

I can see why Ashley is popular and I can see why she in not popular. All I know is, my kingdom for an Ashley hero to speak in full coherent sentences.

Rock Chick By Kristen Ashley $1.99 Love this series!
Rock Chick - Kristen Ashley

Indy Savage, cop's daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy's employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicting matters, Lee has decided he's interested, Indy's decided she's not. But she can't seem to keep Lee out of her life when she's repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she's finding dead bodies).

Indy's best bet is to solve the mystery of the diamonds before Lee. Lee's challenge is to keep Indy alive and, at the same time, win back her heart

The Gamble by Kristen Ashely $1.99
The Gamble - Kristen Ashley

Nina Sheridan thought she'd found the perfect man who would become the perfect husband. She was wrong. When Nina realizes the man she planned to grow old with doesn't know her at all, it's time to rethink her idea of perfect. And what better place to get her life in order than a remote Colorado mountain town halfway around the world? 

Gnaw Bone, Colorado, may not be flashy or cosmopolitan, but it's got a brand of hospitality all its own. Nina isn't entirely sure she's ready to trade the life she thought she wanted in England for cozy evenings in her mountain retreat, and she definitely isn't sure she's ready to handle the connection she feels to the owner of her rental house, Max Holden . . .

Nina didn't come to Colorado to find love, but even the best-laid plans can go awry. Now, if Nina can let go of her past, Max-and a future in Gnaw Bone-might just be the perfect second chance she's been waiting for.

The Gamble, Kristen Ashley
The Gamble (Colorado Mountain) by Kriste... The Gamble (Colorado Mountain) by Kristen Ashley (2014-05-27) - Kristen Ashley

I liked this romantic murder mystery. I was given this book for free and voluntarily chose to review it. I've given this a 4.2* rating.This story pulled me in pretty fast but at 629 pages it took me days to read. Because of large amounts of sexual content and foul language, this is not for the under 18 readers. Which brings me to what I didn't like about this. If you do not like detailed sexual content or foul language, this book is not for you because this book is full of it. I tend to skip over a lot of it and hopefully don't miss something important in the story. I did like the story content and it had a real nice ending. I didn't really care a lot for the bossy hero, but that's just my preference.
