The Hooker and the Hermit - Penny Reid,Luci Cosway

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Let Me Love You by DJ Snake feat. Justin Bieber  --This kind of says it all…Annie just needs to let someone love her….and Ronan sure wants to try.♫

OVERALL RATING:  4/5 Stars (Grade=B+)

 

 

My Thoughts

 

Overall, my biggest issue was the Irish accent of the male narrator, I really don't like the way he drops the H sound, and it just comes out sounding like baby talk to me.  It just blows my whole image of Ronan, a guy who talks like a baby cannot be thought of as hot…

 

 

...this might be one of those books that I would have enjoyed more if I had read it instead of listened.  Trying not to let that influence my rating too much, I will say that this story is refreshingly funny, and well written.  Also, I found the heroines growth to be most inspiring.

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

This really is a satisfying ending to the Reckoners Series…I liked it, but…

 

 

 

I loved the first book in this series, it was inventive and clever.  The second book came out and I listened to it on audio, and I blamed the audio on why I couldn't fully connect.  I decided I would readCalamity because of that.  So…back to book format and I still couldn't fully connect.  I have to say, that sometimes, I just didn't know what was going on, like it was too complex for me.  I think this was a case of it's-not-you-it's-me.  I have to say though, that for me, David, is one of the best characters I have ever encountered.  It's by far the reason that I kept reading this series.

This third book introduced some intriguing elements to this world and it opened up opportunities for a spin-off series.  Will I read those when or if they come out?  Only time will tell…maybe if David is in them.

My Thoughts⇜ 

 

I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama.  Everything about this clicked with me.  I loved it.  That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...

 

Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov).  Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.

⇝Sex Factor⇜  Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

This book had all the feels that I've been missing out on lately with my reading.  I was feeling like maybe I should give up on the romance genre, especially New Adult, because of the lack of feels.  Thank you, Noelle August for this book.

 

 Obviously, I enjoyed this book…with it's edgy plotline of a dating website, called boomerang (clever name, btw) thrown together with exciting, upbeat characters, and…I was hooked.  I absolutely love the way everything played out, it was original and so freaking sweet.

 

⇝Sex Factor⇜  The perfect amount of sex, just enough, it was...perfect…I already said that didn't I?

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

Between this series and IZombie (CW Show) I have found zombies that I can live with.  Zombies that mindlessly eat are really not my thing.  They give me nightmares…These zombies are still functioning members of society, with thoughts and desires of their own. 

With plenty of intriguing mystery, good friends, and a splash of romance this second book was even better than the first, Angel is really coming into her own; with being a zombie, and surviving the hunger for brains.

 

My only qualm with this series is the covers…they always have her holding a cigarette in every one of them.  I don't get it, because in this book she clearly states how she can't even smoke because her parasite; (what makes her a zombie) has to use up her brains quicker to combat what damage the cigarettes are doing to her body.  It's silly, I don't think it makes her look cooler because she's holding a cigarette.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ None that is explicit, it's really not the focus of this book…even the romance is dialed down and takes a back seat to the mystery.
