eARC: Toxic Desire (Released today)
Toxic Desire - Robin Lovett
Nem (Nemona) crash lands on a planet with Oten. That planet happens to be Fyrian. Oten has a history with humans and hates them. I thought with a good reason (they killed many of his kind/species). Together they have to survive on this planet. Except, this planet has an aphrodisiac atmosphere from the flora and fauna. I thought this sounded interesting.
I was disappointed. There's sex. Lots of it. It felt forced with two people who otherwise wouldn't be together. Or even want to be together. I didn't think there was much romance when it was all said and done.

The sequel surpasses its predecessor
Finding Sophie (Losing Cadence) - Laura Lovett

This sequel to Losing Cadence takes place about 12 years after the events in the first book and has a much faster pace. We also get a close look into Richard, including his childhood, which gives a bit more insight into his obsessions and need for control. His struggle with the past, his self-hatred, and needing the devotion of Cadence and their daughter, Sophie, makes for a chilling tale. Sophie is extremely poised and emotionally mature for a twelve-year-old girl, but it does work well for the story. With some interesting twists, a fast-paced story line, and a dramatic conclusion, this one surpasses its predecessor in both suspense and action.

Compelling read
Losing Cadence - Laura Lovett

3.5 stars
While the pacing in this one was a bit slow for my tastes, the author does a write a compelling story. The flashbacks to Richard and Cadence's past are done quite well and add some extra insight into the romance that started it all. The biggest drawback for me was that too many things were so over the top as to be unbelievable. Richard is certifiable to say the least and the lengths he has gone to in carrying out his plan are absolutely spine-tingling. My problem lay with the number of people involved in his plan. I find it hard to believe anyone could find that many people who are gullible enough for his plan to work as long as it did. That said, the story did pull me in and I was invested enough that I wanted to see how it all played out. There's an interesting balance between Cadence's terror and when she learns to play on Richard's obsession. I was also intrigued by Cadence's feelings during her ordeal. The back and forth between fear and contempt for Richard to feeling pity for him, almost but not quite to the point of Stockholm Syndrome, showed good depth of the character. The pace picks up considerably for the conclusion and it does tie up a few things, but there are some unanswered questions and I'm interested enough in these characters to see how that one goes.

Missing Young Woman and Questions
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett - Chelsea Sedoti

Lizzie Lovett was popular when she was in school, but it seems her life was not all it seemed. The story revolves around the disappearance of Lizzie, but it only focuses on the life and feelings of Hawthorn Creely. A senior in high school who had known Lizzie and had wanted to be her friend, hoping that it would help her tread water in high school only to be thrown to the sharks that circled Lizzie. 

 

I was expecting something different in this story and then when it came to the finding of Lizzie it tore me up. I began skipping through the book and not wanting to finish it. It hit too close to home and made things harder for me to read this book. 

 

If you have dealt with the loss of a family member to suicide, do not read this book.

Book Review For: 'Keeper' by Robin Lovett
Keeper: A Dark Captive Romance (Dark Romance Trilogy) - Robin Lovett

'Keeper' by Robin Lovett is book Three in The "Dark" series. This is the story of Chase and Layla. I have read the other books and I do think you can make this a standalone book if you choose to do so. But with that said I really think you would enjoy the book more if you do read all the books. It's been a great Dark Romance Series from the start.
Layla is looking to get Chase's story on what happened a few years back..to get the answers that they need. Layla is also a friend of Chase's half-sister. To get to Chase she had to go into the mountains where few go.
Chase has isolated himself into the mountains and likes it that way. Him and a neighbor make sure to scare off any people or tourist who try to come up their mountain. When he see Layla trying to make it up he first feels a protective desire for her but knows he needs to scare her off. But she isn't going anywhere she tells him.
It was fun watching these to come together and the story-line drama was good too.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
